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.
Does Your Lip Butter Have Attitude?
Christina Fifield-Winn offers a humorous look at the word "attitude" and its evolution in our cultural vocabulary. From having an attitude problem, to having a positive attitude, to drinking coffee with attitude, Fifield-Winn explores the many ways we can now embrace this word and glory in it.
Long Island's Legends & Myths Part II: Lady of the Lake
Patch's very own ghost whisperer Kerriann Flanagan Brosky reminds us of what many Sachem area residents are already vaguely aware: the famous "Lady of the Lake" Ronkonkoma.
Brosky summarizes a number of different yarns spun from the same basic story of the Indian Princess who claims the life of one male every year as part of some cosmic curse. Read this blog to find out all the varying versions of this story. They make for great Hollywood horror films.
No, the Daily Stache isn't closing down, although baseball season is fast approaching its end. The goodbye is intended for the item that gave this blogger its name: Keith Hernandez' mustache. This week it was revealed by Newsday's Neil Best, that the former Mets First Baseman will indeed be shaving off his signature mustache for a good cause.
The Daily Stache took the news hard, although recognizing its worthy cause. Read this blog and jump in on the comments section, as Yankees fans chimed in to mock Mets fans for having nothing else to cheer for except facial hair. Get in there and defend your team!
