The Sachem community has no shortage of opinions, and our guest bloggers on Patch regularly contribute to the vibrant conversations that take place in the barber shop, on the street corner or in the parking lot after a school meeting. Patch brings those conversations into one meetinghouse. Here's a roundup of the latest blogs in our community.

Howard Kroplick continues his great series on Long Island motor vehicle history with a plea for help. A person named Todd D. McIntyre is seeking to identify the make and model of a car in which his grandfather is pictured with a friend. The friend, Will Dick, went on to marry Madeline Force, the widow of John Jacob Astor who died on the Titanic in 1912. The story behind the picture is very Downton Abbey, but crowdsourcing for historic information is never a bad thing. Read this blog post if you know anything about cars and reach out to lend a helping hand to a history detective.
