This Morning’s Bulletin — 5.11.15

Flanders Garbage District
A war of placards for and against the proposed Flanders, Riverside & Northampton garbage district began this past week.

Good Morning!

• We’re expecting partly sunny skies today, with a high near 78 degrees and a southwest wind 9 to 14 miles per hour. Tonight, we’re expecting a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after 3 a.m., patchy fog after midnight, and a low around 60 degrees. Tomorrow, we’re expecting a chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 3 p.m., patchy fog before 9 a.m., and a high near 78 degrees. Wednesday is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high near 65 and Thursday is expected to be sunny, with a high near 67 degrees.

• Flanders residents have begun to see a barrage of placards in their mailboxes both for and against Southampton Town’s proposed garbage district, in advance of a town meeting scheduled to discuss the topic this Friday night, May 15 at 7 p.m. at the Phillips Avenue School. Anyone who has any questions about the district or would like to comment but can’t make it to the meeting can call Councilman Brad Bender’s office at 631.287.5745 or email

• Night paving on Route 25 between Southold and Greenport is expected to begin tonight! Work is expected to last from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday night. Plan your driving accordingly.

• Southampton and East Hampton towns and villages on the South Fork are banding together for a new state initiative called “Solarize South Fork,” which will enable homeowners to band together to receive bulk discounts on solar panel installations. The Beacon’s full story is online here.

• Songwriter and guitarist John Sparrow will be the guest artist at tonight’s edition of East End Opry at Fresh in Bridgehampton. More information is online here.

• Are you wondering what’s going to happen next, or curious about what advice your dead relatives might give to you? We all are, unless we are psychic mediums, which is why if you absolutely need to know these things, you should head over to the Suffolk Theater in Riverhead tonight to ask psychic medium Jeffrey Wands what’s really going on. More information is online here.

• The Beacon’s Week in Review was delivered piping hot to inboxes throughout the East End in the wee hours of Sunday morning. To get your own copy each week, sign up here.

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