• The Floyd Memorial Library in Greenport will host a Greenport Village candidate debate tonight, March 13 at 6 p.m., sponsored by SoutholdLOCAL. This event was rescheduled from March 3 due to inclement weather. More information is online here.


• The East End Arts Gallery hosts a new juried, all media art show, “Abstract & Almost Abstract.” An opening reception will be held tonight, March 13, from 5 to 7 p.m. More information is online here.

• Glynis Berry of Peconic Green Growth will present the results of an engineering study showing how a state-of-the-art clustered wastewater treatment project could be set up in East Marion at a meeting of the East Marion Community Association tomorrow, March 14 at 10 a.m. at the East Marion Firehouse.

• The Orient Association is hosting a dueling meeting to the EMCA meeting at 10 a.m. March 14, where they’ll be discussing a proposal by the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council to route 3,000 more trucks per year through Orient instead of through the I-95 corridor in Connecticut.

• Tomorrow is Super Pi day, the day on which mathematical nutcases celebrate the numerical oddity of a day dated 3.14. This year is special, because not only is it 3.14 but it is also 3.1415…. This won’t happen again for 100 years. Alas, it seems there aren’t any public Super Pi Day celebrations on the East End to inform you about.

• Tomorrow is also National Potato Chip Day, and that is something we can sure as heck celebrate on the East End. Tomorrow, the first 100 patrons to check out an item at the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Library will receive a bag of North Fork Potato Chips.

Today’s Sound of the Day:


• Smile! There are now less than 8 full days left until the official start of spring.

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