Tippi and Al Bevan have been running the Community Food Pantry since 2006.
Tippi and Al Bevan are busiest this time of year, and will stay busy all winter, with the week or so before Thanksgiving marking the beginning of the trend.
Since 2007, the Bevans have been running the Community Food Pantry, which provides free food staples and some personal items, at the Shelter Island Presbyterian Church. Mr. Bevan estimates that the number of hungry people using the pantry has increased due to the cold weather because seasonal, outdoor work, as well as jobs at restaurants and inns have dried up, leaving bread winners to provide for their families any way they can.

Of the approximately 44 million turkeys that will be prepared across America this Thanksgiving, probably half of them will be way too big and the other half overcooked. O.K., maybe a bit of hyperbole (except the number of turkeys, that’s fairly accurate). This is how I do it. (more…)
COURTESY PHOTO | County Legislator Jay Schneiderman is calling for a study of the Millstone power plant.
Each day, some two billion gallons of water are pumped from Long Island Sound into the Millstone Power Station in Waterford, Connecticut — that state’s only nuclear power plant — and used to help cool systems and support the station’s two operating reactors. After it heats up, about 90 percent of that water is discharged back into the Sound at about 20 degrees warmer than when it was taken in, said Ken Holt, a spokesman for Millstone.
Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman (I-Montauk), who represetns Shleter Island, wants to better understand what, if any, impact that heated water is having on the ecology of the Sound and surrounding waters and has reached out to researchers at Stony Brook University’s School of Atmospheric Science, hoping they can determine whether Millstone might be “overheating” the Sound’s waters.
