• A month after Riverhead Town Supervisor Sean Walter offhandedly announced at a meeting that the town is about to conduct a rural corridor study of Route 25 from Aquebogue to Laurel, those who care about that stretch of highway say the study “might close the barn door…but only after the cows have gone.” The Beacon’s full story is online here.
