Good Morning!

• Walt Whitman said Napeague was “cheerless.” The East Hampton Trails Preservation Society begs to differ. And if anyone can find Napeague’s beauty, it’s hike leader Rick Whalen, who’s leading an eight-mile hike through the Napeague woods this Saturday morning. More information is online here.

• The Neo-Political Cowgirls’ One Billion Rising celebration at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor is tonight. They’ll be dancing (and asking you to dance) in the spirit of unity with women all over the world. More information is online here.

• Southampton Town Councilwoman Bridget Fleming lost her bid on Tuesday to keep party officials from serving on town land use boards. The board instead adopted a law that would limit the number of members of each party on each land use board. Sound convoluted? It is. The Beacon’s story is online here.

• The Riverhead Town Board will discuss the Mainstream House sober house application, the Brownfields Opportunity Area grant and the park & recreation fund at their 10 a.m. work session today. Their agenda is online here.

• Southold wants high school kids to run its cable access channel. The Beacon’s full story is online here.

• Don’t forget to check The Beacon’s event calendar to plan your week ahead.

And that’s the way things look at dawn’s light here today.
