Good morning, on this somber Wednesday, the 12th anniversary of the events of Sept. 11, 2001. 

— To honor those who lost their lives on 9/11, firefighters will lead a service in East Hampton on Wednesday night at about 6 p.m. The public is invited to join. 

— The deadline is fast approaching for the Montauk SurfMasters Fall Classic. No applications will be accepted after Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. The 10-week striped bass tournament, which runs from Sept. 14 at 12:01 a.m. through Dec. 1 at 10 a.m., has five divisions: adult wader, wetsuit, women, youth (12-17 years old) and kids (7-11 years old). If you would like to pick up an application they are available at Paulie's Tackle and Gaviolas or see one of the committee members.

— Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota held off Republican primary challenger Raymond Perini with about 56 percent of the vote on Tuesday, setting up the 12-year district attorney to run unopposed for a fourth term in November.

— Summer may not be completely over, but Oktoberfest is here. Rowdy Hall will kick off Oktoberfest on Sept. 21 with a traditional Oktoberfest festival from 3 to 5 p.m. The restaurant will be converted into a traditional German beer garden for the Oktoberfest Festival with picnic tables in the courtyard and communal dining tables in the dining room.  German bar snacks will be offered such as fresh baked pretzels with mustard, knockwurst, bratwurst and bockwurst platters. Bavarian music will play in the courtyard weather permitting.

— Blogger Deborah Klughers reminded us all that the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation is holding its annual 5K Run for the Ridley next moth, on Oct. 26. Riverhead isn't that far. "It is for a good cause- they are the only marine mammal and sea turtle rescue and rehab group in New York," Klughers writes.

— On a more somber note, Donald Alversa's family told Patch yesterday that a funeral will be held at St. Therese Lisieux Church in Montauk at 10 a.m. The 24-year-old fisherman died Saturday night after a fishing accident. A wake will be held on Thursday at the Yardley & Pino Funeral Home in East Hampton from 2 to 8 p.m.
