Annoying Birds Dear Editor: With the summer season now fast upon us, the helicopter noise from the steady stream of whirleybirds flying in has already begun to reach a fever pitch, with their incessant whining.

Around and Around We Go   Dear Editor, In the April 25 issue of The Sag Harbor Express, a man asked about the “gas price discrepancy” and if “someone can explain.” I too asked that same question in 2008 to Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele, Jr. A letter of explanation was sent to me. At the [...]

Not in My Air Space   Dear Editor, For decades East Hampton airport has been directing its noisy airport operations over other towns, yet nothing has been done to stop them; from last July, 80 percent of air traffic in and out of East Hampton airport has been directed over residents in other communities, not [...]

Look Forward to Change Dear Editor: At the Sag Harbor Zoning Board of Appeals meeting of April 16, the lawyer representing the developers of Harbor Heights gas station indicated that the project would be redesigned.
