The Cranberry Bog Preserve in Riverhead is a 165-acre park of whats left of an abandoned cranberry-growing operation. Nature trails allow for sights of the Little Peconic River as well as different bird species and other wildlife.
This month was the grand opening of a new footbridge at the preserve.
Hello, my name is Kenny Burns. I’m with the Cutchogue Fire Department. This is my second year as captain. It’s my 11th year as a member and, because of being a volunteer, I actually do this now for a living. I work as a paid first responder for Amagansett and Bridgehampton. READ
I’m Beth Ficner. I’m the security guard here at Cutchogue East School.
I started working as a security guard in 2004. My normal day is to punch in at 7:30. I come in and go down to the cafeteria, where chorus and band is taking place. I go outside, help the kids off the bus with their instruments, make sure they get in safely. And then I basically stand outside there helping kids in and out of the car. The reason for me being out there helping with the cars is not only for their safety, but I enjoy greeting the kids, making them have a smile in the morning. Some kids have a rough time so I’ll crack a joke, and try to help them out of the car and start their day off a little bit smoother. READ
