• The Mattituck-Laurel Civic Association wants to know how you feel about the intersection of Love Lane, the Main Road and Old Sound Avenue, a picturesque corner on the edge of a sharp and dangerous turn.

Sag Harbor Pharmacist Jeff Yohai, Lloyd Magothy Water Trust Executive Director Tom McAbee and Southampton Hospital President and CEO Robert Chaloner show off the new medication disposal box at the Sag Harbor Pharmacy.

• Responsible disposal of expired and unused medications is now more convenient for Sag Harborites, thanks to the Sag Harbor Pharmacy and Southampton Hospital, who have collaborated to put a pharmaceutical collection recepticle at the pharmacy on Main Street in Sag Harbor. The Lloyd Magothy Water Trust, Inc., supplied the collection receptacle, which helps prevent prescription drug abuse and keep medications out of our drinking water.

• Guild Hall hosts an afternoon full of kids’ entertainment today. Illusionist Jason Bishop will be at Guild Hall for two KidFEST performances at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. [$12-$18] and Citarella will be hosting a cookie-decorating workshop between the shows at 4 p.m. [$5-$10].

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