• Mattituck resident Charles Scheer Jr. is the new president of the board of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk. He previously served as the organization’s vice president and treasurer. A former production manager and currently a consultant for Half Hollow Nursery in Laurel, Mr. Scheer is a past president of the Long Island Farm Bureau’s board of directors.

• Sandy Caltabiano has joined the staff of Town & Country Real Estate at its Mattituck office. Ms. Caltabiano formerly co-owned and operated her own firm handling residential and commercial sales in Brooklyn.

• Suffolk Bancorp, the parent company of Suffolk County National Bank, has reported a drop in earnings for the fourth quarter of 2010 and for the entire year. The company’s fourth quarter net income fell 22.2 percent, from $5.15 million during the same period in 2009 to $4 million. For the full year, income declined by 33.4 percent, from $22,548,000 to $15,020,000. In both cases, the results reflect an increase in the company’s loan loss reserves.
“We believe that economic improvement on ‘Main Street’ will be at a pace slower than we had all hoped for,” said J. Gordon Huszagh, president and CEO. Although 2010 was a “challenging year,” Mr. Huszagh added, “We feel rewarded in our efforts to remain profitable in difficult times.”

  • You bet Legacy Village is a bad idea, how can the town expect our small roads to handle the traffic, it cannot handle it now. Also what school district are they all going to be going to…Longwood. Longwood School Taxes are high enough, and enviormentally this a wrong move, the Carmen’s River Watershed is right next to the property.

    LETS KEEP YAPHANK COUNTRY AND PRISTINE, LIKE IT IS NOW….STOP TRYING TO FORCE THIS DOWN OUR THROATS WE DO NOT WANT IT…..GET THE MESSAGE…..
