Southold Town is exploring the idea of establishing a youth court to offer non-violent offenders under age 16 an alternate pathway.

A youth court would give these offenders a second chance without a criminal record, Southold Town community relations specialist and Youth Bureau member Lynn Nyilas said Tuesday at a Town Board work session.

The director’s office at Community Action Southold Town’s two-story headquarters in Greenport is lined with shelves overflowing with toys, books, puzzles and games that will soon be distributed to needy families across the North Fork.

Downstairs, in the nonprofit’s pantry, a fresh shipment of donations from the Greenport IGA has just arrived. Boxes of pasta, soup, frozen food and more cover the floor.  (more…)

COURTESY PHOTO | Frank Seabrook hopes his new Republican club will help jump-start party efforts throughout the East End.

The newly formed Peconic Republican Club, which seeks to unify Republican efforts on the East End in light of losses in recent elections for county legislator and Congress, has selected an executive committee that comprises several people who have been involved in local Republican politics.

The group’s chairman is Frank Seabrook of Wading River, who founded the group, along with Brian Mills of Wading River.

Mr. Seabrook is the former publisher of the New York Liberty Report, a Conservative blog he published for the past four years. He’s also a retired New York City police officer, a building construction manager and a member of the Riverhead Town Zoning Board of Appeals.

He said the recent county legislative result, where Republican Sean Walter was trounced by Democrat Al Krupski, helped him realize that Republican voters were mostly older and needed rejuvenation.

“One of the main goals of the Peconic Republicans is to create a stronger more unified regional Republican voice,” Mr. Seabrook said in a press release. “Therefore, it was very important for me that the leadership of this new organization not only came from the four corners of the East End, but also (that they) were leaders in their own individual communities.”

The group’s vice chairman is former Southold Town Republican chairman Denis Noncarrow, and the second vice chairman is former Southampton Town Republican chairman Ernie Wruck.

Diane Weir of East Hampton, a former town councilwoman, is the group’s secretary. She’s worked as chief of staff for Republican Congressman Mike Forbes, Long Island Housing Authority vice president and campaign manager for Republican Congressional candidate Randy Altschuler’s last campaign.

Mr. Mills, a former president of the Riverhead Republican Club, is the group’s treasurer.

“The Peconic Republicans have now laid a strong foundation to build upon,” Mr. Seabrook said. “Moving forward, it is our sincere goal to become a flagship organization within the Suffolk County Republican Party.”

The group eventually hopes to become a Political Action Committee and raise funds to support candidates, Mr. Seabrook said.

Denis Noncarrow, who as chairman has lead the Southold Republican Party through a series of successful elections, stepped down Tuesday night, citing his desire to spend more time with his family.

“I feel it’s time,” said Mr. Noncarrow, who previously served as the party’s vice chair and treasurer. “The committee is in good shape and there’s more than enough people to take care of it.”

With the resignation, the party leadership post falls to current vice chair John Helf of Peconic. The party is expected to name a new chairman within a month.

Mr. Noncarrow has held the chairman’s position for four years. He also serves on the board of directors of Community Action of Southold Town, an anti-poverty group, and is expected to become its chairman following Peg Murphy, who is stepping down.
