A "Summer of Discontent" in Long Island Waters

There were record numbers of fish kills, dead zones and toxic tides, intensified by summer heat, in Long Island’s estuaries in 2022, according to this year’s assessment of water quality by the Gobler Lab at Stony Brook University.

From June through September, “every major bay and estuary across Long Island was afflicted by fish kills, algal blooms and oxygen-starved, dead zones,” according to the report. “Excessive delivery of nitrogen from onsite wastewater has been cited as the root cause of these disturbing events.”

Greetings from the Exurbs

As massive lines of luxury cars again snake their way through the East End’s pumpkin patches this fall, we’ve been hearing many people lately puzzle over one big conundrum. How do we characterize the place where we live?

“This farce is going to be a good time,” says director Mark Heidemann of “Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll & Hyde Play,” the horror farce the company is putting up at the Southampton Cultural Center Oct. 14 through Oct. 30. “It’s almost like farce is one step beyond ultra-scary. It just goes to being ridiculous.”
