Every once in a while a bird shows up that takes the South Fork by storm. In the past, it’s been eagles, snowy owls, pelicans, Lapland longspurs, Ross’s gulls, puffins, painted buntings, and scissor-tail flycatchers, to name but a few. Birdwatchers come from all over the United States, even from as far west as California, to see some of those rare birds.

The new home for the Kendall Madison Fitness Center at East Hampton High School is cavernous, a super-gym four times larger than the old one, and, wonderful to tell, it is not only filled with equipment — much of it having been donated by the Hampton Gym Corp’s Bruce Cotter last spring, a gift valued at $250,000 — but also is filled with students working out every school day, 30 to 50 on average, from 2:30 on.
