Good morning, East Hampton.

— A big congratulations to East Hampton Town Police Captain Michael Sarlo who was named the next chief on Thursday night. He was unanimously selected to take over for Chief Ed Ecker, who will retire at the end of December. Best wishes in your new position, Chief Sarlo!

— The groundbreaking for the construction starting on the new health canter in Southampton was held on Thursday. We'll bring you more on that later.

— Weather alert: Long Island could see a soggy Tuesday and Wednesday next week as the remnants from Tropical Storm Karen barrel up the East Coast. According to a Weather.com report, once Karen makes landfall in the Gulf Coast the moisture could be forced east by a cold front guiding Winter Storm Atlas to the west, soaking the area.

— In recognition of National Fire Prevention Week, REVCO Lighting + Electrical Supply will donate $1 to local fire departments for every smoke detector sold during the month of October. The East Hampton Fire Department is one of the beneficiaries.

— Coming up this weekend: Pippa's Pooch Parade. Join Pippa and her people on Saturday for a dog walk through Sag Harbor Village to raise money for military families and veterans, all in the name of Lance Cpl. Jordan C. Haerter, a Sag Harbor marine who was killed in 2008. The event is asking for a $25 donation. The walk begins at 8:30 a.m. at Havens Beach, and is organized by Jordan's Initiative.
