Participate in Cutchogue Fire Department’s “Adopt a Hydrant” program to help them keep us safe. You can keep local hydrants free of ice and snow by clearing a three-foot perimeter around them and by clearing paths from hydrants to the street.
Like it or not, February is here. Thank goodness we have the Porters basketball season to help move it along quickly. Their final home game of the season will be Wednesday, Feb. 8, when they host Pierson. The JV game starts at 4:30 p.m. and varsity at 6:15. The final game of the regular season will take place at Bridgehampton Friday, Feb. 10. I’m so proud of these kids and how well they’re doing this season.

Happy New Year! I once read that it was acceptable to say Happy New Year well into January, as long as it was the first time you were saying it to whomever you were saying it to. Hope that your new year is off to a good start.

Babies make everyone smile! On Facebook, I saw the incredible smile on Owen Luke Zuhoski’s face, which made me giggle out loud. Owen was welcomed into the open arms of his parents, Grace and Ian, at 10:56 a.m. Dec. 26. He was a whopping 9 pounds, 7 ounces and 21.9 inches long. May God bless Owen as he brings joy to all who love him! (more…)
A friend told me that in numerology, 2017 (numbers adding up to 10, thus 1), means the year will be all things positive, with 2016, added up to 9, being the end. It’s interesting; Google it. So I was in an upbeat mode until this first week brought multiple deaths, a horrific event at the Fort Lauderdale airport and a foot of snow, accompanied by icy roads and auto accidents. I guess the long and short of it is, one day at a time and what will be will be. I hope that doesn’t sound too clichéd. Happy 2017. (The days are getting longer.)
