For one student, it took learning to strategize to make it through. Another became noticeably more responsible in all aspects of life. Yet another learned that time management and goal-setting lead to success. Each of them, along with 24 of their peers, used these new skills to cross the finish line in this year's Marathon of Achievement. The Marathon of Achievement, or MOA, is a way for the students to excel outside of their regular studies. Created more than a decade ago by Southampton Team 7D teachers, the goal is to challenge students with academic, cultural and character building exercises that offer each of them a chance to be a winner.

GARDEN CITY, N.Y. -- Peter Pan, the fairy tale character who flies through the sky and battles with pirates, has been grounded by a new foe: the 1990s debate over multiculturalism.A middle school in Southampton canceled last month its production of "Peter Pan," scheduled to open last weekend, because administrators found that its portrayal of Indians was offensive to members of the Shinnecock tribe, whose reservation is on the town's border and whose children make up about 9 percent of the district's student body.

When I read shelter magazines such as Elle Decor or House Beautiful -- as I have, avidly, for years -- I always experience a warm glow of appreciation for the domestic creativity of my fellow human beings. How happy it makes me to see the splendid way some folks live. Ha! Believe that, and perhaps you'll come visit my maisonette on Mars. No, indeed. I'm ashamed to admit that gliding my eyes across photographs of faultlessly appointed rooms sometimes fills me with a toxic mixture of envy and self-recrimination.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - This time, Retief Goosen didn't need to make a 2-foot putt to win the U.S. Open. Nor did he need to go through a sleepless night before an 18-hole playoff or consult with a sports psychologist in his hotel room. For Goosen, Shinnecock Hills didn't turn into Southern Hills revisited. Goosen made a bunch of pressure putts down the stretch in yesterday's final round of the 104th Open and took advantage of one huge blunder by the competition - in this case a three-putt double bogey by Phil Mickelson on the par-3 17th hole - to win by two strokes.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. -- The transformation began early in yesterday's second round of the 104th U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh climbed up the leader board. Other lesser-name players, including first-round leader Angel Cabrera of Argentina, started to see their names and scores drop. Later it was perennial major championship contender Jeff Maggert and former U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen of South Africa changing places with perennial major contender Jay Haas and reigning British Open champion Ben Curtis.

SOUTHAMPTON , N.Y. -- Middle-class year-rounders in the Hamptons come to accept the miles of millionaires inching Porsches through summertime traffic to the next tent party. But they did not expect this influx from the other extreme. The newest Long Island East Enders are homeless, 329 of them, crammed into Southampton motels for months on end as Suffolk County scrounges for space for a homeless population that has more than doubled since 1999. Suddenly year-round residents are wedged between the entitled rich and the entitlement programs of the poor.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. -- The 104th U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club was supposed to be a confluence of the world's best players finding their way to one of the world's toughest courses at a time when, with one notable exception, all seemed to be at the top of their games. While a few of the sport's elite are certain to contend and still seem poised to win, the opening round yesterday was about players who had rarely been in that position before and one -- Jay Haas -- who continues to confound and compete despite recently becoming eligible for the Champions Tour.

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - Sergio Garcia was heading to the practice range yesterday morning at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, walking briskly past the fans who were standing behind a fence and clamoring for his autograph. Garcia quietly declined and kept moving. After he disappeared from sight, one fan muttered that the young Spaniard was big-timing him. "He wins one [last week's Buick Classic] and he won't talk to you," the man said. One thing you can count on at the 104th U.S. Open, which begins here today, is that the fans will talk - or worse - even if they're not being spoken to. Recent history says as much.
