It sounds like the School Board and School Admin need to get their act together, quite frankly. Signing contracts that aren't approved? Going forward with projects that haven't been fully defined?
to be fair, it seems like the new superintendant inherited a bit of a mess but his actions seem to have exacerbated the situation.

I know this area well.
Maybe something like this will get enough publicity so that the police have some reason to patrol this area for illegal Motorbike/ATV riding, Illegal Shooting and Garbage Dumping instead of just looking the other way and ignoring it (tacitly endorsing it)" Jan 29, 09 10:59 AM
Maybe real cops would work better.
Anyway, I feel sorry for the officer in the picture. He was viewed by thousands everyday. Now, he's just another forgotten face in a pile of scrap metal. " Jan 29, 09 11:02 AM

i would imagine the 'kids' parents are paying rent someplace and that rent pays the property taxes, which fund the school no? Maybe we shouldn't let anyone who rents send their kids to public schools then.
Oh, and are 'folks like you' receiving a special tax to fund this program or do folks like me and 'they' also share the cost?

Thank you Kevin for defending our wetlands from development. The Larry Hoffmans of the world should not be profiting from the degredation of our environment. It is too bad the trustees don't have the political cajones to do what should have been done" Feb 19, 09 11:54 AM
Instead of making current employees actually accountable and mandate that they do the jobs they are supposed to do, lets make up additional positons with cushy benefits and pensions!!
I would like to throw my hat in the ring for the 'Czar of Budgeting' positon that will inevitably be coming. Or perhaps 'Minister of Capital Accounts'

Dennis pretty much runs a deli/specialty food store now anyway. Produce is a small part of his business now. And an even smaller part of that business is local (grown on long island) produce. " Mar 14, 09 12:50 PM
^ yes Jane Q Public, we wouldn't want you to have to interact with any of those 'of non european descent' type people. If 'they' could just all stay in Hampton Bays and Springs emerging once a week to mow our lawns and trim our hedges that would be beneficial to us all. " Mar 18, 09 4:56 PM

ahhh....the shell game is finally over. Instead of increasing taxes to fund their outrageous speding increases, they borrowed from this fund and that fund to keep the general fund escalation in spending hidden from the taxpayers by not raising taxes.
I can appreciate their effort in keeping my tax rates low, but doing so by shuffling money from this fund to that fund isn't kosher in my book and certainly not a long term solution. How about actually spending less?
It is indeed good news that the additional revenues that helped keep the towns general fund afloat are gone, and all these skeletons keep coming out. The Comptrollers office audit will surely uncover other 'bookeeping' errors.

^ the town is currently not offering a fair value for the development rights, and could not afford to buy all of the rights if it was offered to do so anyway.
I see this as a great proposal. Good luck Mr. Bishop. " Apr 2, 09 11:21 AM
I can't believe people can't differentiate between 2 seperate lines of thought;
1. feeding hungry people is good. no matter what size/shape/color/religion/ethnicity. We should not need quotes from books of fiction to illustrate this point for us.
2. People have a right to be upset about illegal immigrants. You don't have to be a racist or a bigot, and shouldn't be called such. These are not terms that should be thrown around casually. In fact, they are usually used to keep people from expressing their viewpoints. People have a right to be upset that there are undocumented aliens walking around on our streets and our government looks the other way because it is the easy and most convenient thing to do.
