Attorney to investigate worker's death

Reminds me a little bit of My Cousin Vinny; is this lawyer admitted in New York???????????????????????????" Jan 18, 09 9:48 AM

East Hampton man arrested, charged with fleeing scene of fatal accident

In defense of the Judge, she, unlike most of you thus far, knows that an undocumented alien who fails to post bail in the court will certainly have an immigration hold placed upon him as soon as he arrives at the Riverhead jail; this defendant therefore isn't going anywhere until his case is completed and he serves his time. At that point he will be deported." Mar 31, 09 8:33 AM

Despite recent fatalities, officials say County Road 39 safer now

This roadwill always remain dangerous as long as two cars traveling in opposit directions are able to simultaneously move into the center turning lane to get to make a turn. Despite the protests from business owners, it needs a barrier down the middle with just a few turning points. Also, anyone who has ever sat at the North Sea Road intersection facing south at a red light can tell you how dangerous it is when a vehicle heading west crosses over to enter 7-11 instead of turning south at the light. They NEVER seem to get ticketed despite the huge police presence there. Hopefully, the day will never come when they make that illegal turn only to be stuck in oncoming traffic because of a bottleneck in the 7-11 parking lot." Apr 22, 09 7:12 AM

Two critically injured in accident on CR39 Monday morning

I am deeply saddened to see that almost one month to the day since I commented how dangerous it is to head west and turn into the 7-11 parking lot (April 22nd article "Despite Recent Fatalities, Officials Say County Road 39 Safer Now" ) it has apparently now occurred. " May 25, 09 6:04 PM

Local lawmakers challenge saltwater fishing license proposal

I don't understand. Am I missing something? Wasn't Mr. Thiele in Albany when this was passed? If so, how effective is he as a representative if his response is to now challenge it after the fact in a press conference?" Jun 13, 09 10:08 AM

hey underdog, the word "proposal" is a political smokescreen. You need to read beyond the first line ..... to the second line ("which was adopted"). Why else would the trustees from four east end towns (And Thiele) be holding a press conference calling for its "repeal" ? If you can prove otherwise, I will try my best to comprehend. Otherwise, back to my question:: where was Mr. Thiele when it was adopted?" Jun 15, 09 6:01 PM

"Thiele voted against the license in the budget" ??? I am reminded of a Mark Twain Quote: A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." Jun 17, 09 10:20 AM

Fred Thiele considers a party switch

Mark Twain said the following:

"In the beginning of change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."

Kabot gets enough signatures to force a primary

Here is a fitting quote:
"It's our tendency to approach every problem as if it were a fight between two sides. We see it in headlines that are always using metaphors for war. It's a general atmosphere of animosity and contention that has taken over our public discourse." - Deborah Tannen, Georgetown University.

We need a genuine leader; someone who will fight not just for political survival, but for the people of Southampton." Jul 17, 09 3:33 PM

Roadwork will disrupt traffic on North Sea Road Tuesday, Wednesday

Very impressive that you can spell "plague"; now, can you spell XENOPHOBIA?" Jul 28, 09 7:34 AM

Tim Bishop pushes the House to pass college aid bill

Tim Bishop is one of the most effective, intelligent, compassionate congressmen in the country. I am proud that he is my congressman. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion (even though some of the commentators here are way off base). He would be the first one to engage in a dialogue with any of you, listen to your opinions and tell you the basis of his positions; I have seen him do this on several occassions.

Southampton Village replaces Crown Victorias with Chargers

No matter which type of car the village police use I really would like to see them issuing tickets to the reckless drivers who continue to turn into the 7-11 from the westbound lane, especially considering the equally reckless eastbound drivers who continue to run red lights there. Sadly, we know these are ingredients for disaster. " Sep 26, 09 7:26 AM

Southampton Village installing a crosswalk at Windmill and Jagger lanes

Anyone who has tried to cross there knows, this is an excellent idea; why quibble about the cost?" Oct 2, 09 6:55 PM

Thiele leaves Republicans, joins Independence Party

This is a cowardly lion baby step toward an eventual switch to the democratic party. He continues to sit on the fence and read polls to decide what he is and what he stands for. Votesmart.org has a "political courage test" revealing that make a deal thiele:
1) does not support fnancial punishment for those who knowingly employ illegal immigrants.
2) now supports same sex marriage even though he voted against it less than two years ago.
3) his rating by the NY Civil Liberties Union jumped from 60% to 86%. and
4) supports term limits for NY state senators and assembly members.
I am in agreement with the term limits. He has been there since 1996. It is time for more than a change in party labels, it is time for a change in who represents us. Not just a blood transfusion, time for new blood." Oct 3, 09 12:18 PM

fcmcmann: Are you saying Anna Throne Holst supports illegal immigration because she is a democrat? or because she was born and raised in Sweden?" Oct 3, 09 2:51 PM

Campaign Diary: Gregor pushes plan for solar panels at town landfill

"Isn't it rather dangerous to use one's entire vocabulary in a single sentence?" Oliver`" Oct 8, 09 8:28 AM

Quogue Village mayor pleads guilty to securities fraud

Reading some of these comments, I am reminded of Don Henley singing:

"Kick 'em when they're up.
Kick 'em when they're down.
Kick 'em when they're stiff.
Kick 'em all around.
Dirty little secrets.
Dirty little lies.
We've got our dirty little fingers in everybody's pie.
We love to cut you down to size.
We love dirty laundry." " Oct 14, 09 8:15 AM

Campaign Diary: Debate set for Southampton candidates

You are waaaaaaaaaaay off base here. To paraphrase Joan Baez:

"You know a lot for being so [gosh darn] dumb."" Oct 15, 09 8:14 AM

Southampton Town candidate debate attracts nearly 200 people

FUNGIBLE CRIMES ???????????????" Oct 22, 09 3:10 PM

Southampton Town Board candidate Bridget Fleming (D)

Respectfully, can someone tell me how it is that Ms. Fleming is more "qualified" to represent the people of Southampton Town if she has only been living here for the last eight years? A lot of us voters have children who have been living in this town longer." Oct 30, 09 4:37 PM

Southampton Town Highway Superintendent candidate John McGann (C,R)

He is a complete professional and a gentleman. He has my vote." Oct 30, 09 5:02 PM

Southampton Town Comptroller Wright reappointed

Harry and David wanted to use their new sleds outside, but they needed to wait until it snowed. The next week they used their sleds; it was not immediately clear why they changed their positions." Jan 30, 10 8:46 AM

Bridget Fleming wins vacant Southampton Town Board seat

But notice she received 2253 votes less than she did in November.
(5456 - 3203 = 2253). Hmmmmmm . . . " Mar 10, 10 6:24 AM

Number 19 and Bel:
the point is she spent more and got less in a time when we need to spend less and get more. Hope this isnt an indication of how effective she will be on the town board." Mar 10, 10 9:06 AM
