Catz resigns from school board

I think they should put Eric Casale in.He ran against Leeman in May. Eric is a great guy and we could use his ideas. We need a change on this school board. They kept defending Catz from day one." Sep 3, 08 10:02 AM

Former Hampton Bays principal files complaint against school district

When you are going to be working with our kids there needs to be moral accountability as well as criminal. Who wants scum like that being left to guide our children? Thieves and stalkers have no place in public schools collecting MY tax money as pay." Oct 1, 08 1:36 PM

East End community struggling to recruit and retain doctors

Unfortunately Mr Suffolk, people taking your 10.00 copay with another 20.00 coming from your mainstream ins carrier to Riverheard isn't any doctors concern. Thats not even enough to pay the medical assistant to spend endless amounts of time on the phone trying to preapprove treatment the doctor orders. There is so much that offices have to deal with that patients arent even aware of. No one knows until something doesnt go your way...like dropping your insurance." Feb 17, 09 7:08 PM

Southampton wrestling coach arrested on drug charges

Are you kidding me????? I really don't need to know anyone who sticks needles in their arms to get high to know they are not a good person. He is a drug addict!!! No I'm not perfect either but I sure don't drive around with drugs and needles. What the hell is wrong with people to excuse this? So if he was downloading porn at home not on school time, but was still a nice guy, thats ok too? Good luck with that!!!" Mar 27, 09 4:34 PM

SESMom, no I'm not perfect but I don't go to work high. HE STICKS NEEDLES FULL OF DRUGS IN HIMSELF! Damn right I'm judging him, he's a teacher , paid with taxpayers money . He answers to us the TAXPAYERS!!!!! Looks like Mr. Wonderful isn't the only one in denial." Mar 28, 09 5:19 PM

Crankypants I am waaayyyy over it. You keep the heroine junkie.....oh and it Miss Perfect thank you." Mar 28, 09 7:19 PM

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

More than unbelievable..... not guilty? Legal aid? I just don't get it. Save the taxpayers the cost of a trial DEPORT HIM!!!! Duh, Dumb ass politicians and bleeding heart liberals have made our system a joke." Mar 30, 09 8:24 PM

Littleplains, yup if I had an accident here, I would get the same bail. But you are forgetting he is here illegally and not a citizen therefore should not have the same considerations. Now that being said, if he were not here, she would be alive and with her family. I would also like to see you go to his country , illegally of course, and see what kind of legal aid, housing and education you get for free. Let me know how it works out." Mar 31, 09 10:24 AM

MsHampton, cancer couldn't be more different. It is not a choice. Drug addiction is. He chose to inject himself with an illegal and controlled substance.
He was likely injecting it while doing his job and working with your kids. It is by the grace of God that nothing bad happened or someone hurt while he was driving under the influence. My son does not need him as an example to know LOSERS do drugs. " Mar 31, 09 10:36 AM

Well not all losers do drugs but all druggies are losers." Mar 31, 09 1:25 PM

Venerable radio host Paul Sidney, 69, dies

I remember those storms too! LNG was our only source of anything local back then. Very sad." Apr 2, 09 3:28 PM

Code enforcement shuts down soup kitchen at Southampton Tire

I agree Crankypants, your ancestors were immigrants, not illegal immigrants. Mine came from Germany and Ireland thru Ellis Island, given health exams and had to learn English. They did not crawl under a fence with their hands out. Within 2 years they were citizens , spoke english and worked hard. Never once stood on a line for a handout. Who would mind more legal taxpayers coming here to take some of the burden? Thats not whats happening. I would love some of you bleeding heart liberals to see how many of your own taxpaying neighbors have to choose medicine over food.The elderly that sit in filth cause no one checks on them. Maybe we can wheel them out in front of 7-11. " Apr 2, 09 3:42 PM

XYZ my compassion goes to people who get what they don't deserve. You shoot up, you go to jail. Thats called illegal and teachers and people in authority should be held at a higher standard. Actually any responsible adult should be able to figure out there is a problem when you have to hide track marks." Apr 2, 09 3:45 PM

Pstevens, I WORK in Hampton Bays. And Bush should have been barred from service for many other reasons. But if he was caught drunk, driving around Washington that wouldn't be a problem....cause he has an illness. Where is personal responsibility? Everything is an addiction, get caught with a hooker and it sex addiction. If your fat its food addiction.No one said he can't get well but come on people....IV drug use by a teacher? I have a real problem with the PC lovefest. And while you feel IV drug use is a disease maybe but its one he shot up himself. I really want to know why just cause my opinion is different its called ignorance. If I agree with you I would be genius? Or just another PC lapdog. Sorry I conform to nothing." Apr 2, 09 5:56 PM

Woman dies in crash; driver flees on foot

No one says the guy killed intentionally. If we wasn't here , as he is not here legally, she would be alive. He didn't need to look for help, the road was full of people running to help. Bad arguement, brillant11." Apr 2, 09 7:23 PM

Well said CLaw. My opinion is not based on anyones skin color. They are here illegally and with a hand out. Thats my problem with the whole situation. Schools now need seperate classrooms for kids who don't speak English! The school office needs translators! Press 1 for English...." Apr 3, 09 3:09 PM

Police arrest party bus driver

13 year olds on a party bus drinking with 19 year olds? 30 kids and no one knew what was going on. Sorry but even my son isn't that good at hiding stuff like this. Shame on the parents. Blame everyone but yourself, you should know what your kid is up to." Apr 4, 09 11:40 AM

What is so sad is that because an opinion is not PC it's deemed ignorant. We should look around our own country, better yet go up to the reservation. Put a new roof on someone house up there. They can't get home equity loans. The illegal immigrants are sucking up your generosity and sending the cash home. Stand on line at King Kullen on Fridays and watch the long line of cash heading south. I'm all for feeding anyone who is hungry ." Apr 5, 09 8:43 AM

Start prosecuting the dirtbags hiring virtual slave labor. They don't hire them out of the goodness of their hearts...cheap labor. No jobs no need to jump the fence." Apr 8, 09 1:34 PM

Whatashame, each and every town and/or village has a food pantry. Sacred Hearts on Hill st, St Rosalie in Hampton Bays etc. Its no big secret. I guess its just not convenient enough for the guys in front of 7 11. You people want to help feed the poor, donate to the food pantry or volunteer at Maureens Haven to help the homeless. They always need help setting up and making and providing food. Stop the lowlife from seeking the cheap labor! Sorry mow your own lawn lazy Americans!" Apr 9, 09 11:10 AM

Councilwoman closer to deciding on supervisor

Dagdavid, the country has not moved on. Its a major concern for most of the country. Just cause you need the cheap labor does not put all of us there. If politicians did what their constituants wanted , immigration policy would have been established. Now they are all just jockeying for the 12 million votes that are making the bums salivate."

Please...the "were all immigrants" line is old. No kidding, we know where we came from. But my ancestors came here, no hand out, LEARNED ENGLISH, and became citizens. Never was money sent "home", this was their home. They built this country, fought in wars and died all in the name of the love for their country. If the poor, hungry people wanted to be part of our culture I wouldn't have signs in spanish at my polling place or need to press 1 for english. Amigo....." Apr 9, 09 1:48 PM

Holier than thou? To state the FACT that immigrants in MOST of our families that came through Ellis Island and Boston And Canada in the 1800's did it the right way? Thats holier than thou? I will guarantee you that NO ONE fed the poor Irish in Boston, much less welcomed them to a soup kitcken. But to ask that immigrants simply go the route the law states is what....? We definately agree, this will never be fixed as long as officials make money in construction and real estate. Plug the flow of jobs, prosecute the garbage who pick them up to exploit as cheap labor . Maybe some of you feed them out of guilt....does the landscaper you use employ those that stand at 7 11?"

Faceless, thats it once again." Apr 10, 09 9:39 AM

It has everything to do with anyone who lives in this country who is expected to obey laws. If you don't like the laws, change them. Does ignoring a law make any cause right?" Apr 10, 09 12:02 PM

St Patrick was an Irish saint in the CATHOLIC CHURCH! What does St. patricks day have to do with America!! thats is more fnny than ignorant! Oh and if you truly have traveled...Americans are not welcome everywhere. Try doing a bit of time with our men in Iraq, you know the ones fighting for our country. I'm sure they feel welcome. Been to France lately? Not real welcome there either. Yeah they want us in the southern hemisphere to spend money.
My grandparents took two years to learn English and become citizens. They never once pressed 2 for German or even voted in an election with signs in German.
As far as not getting medical care, the clinics and ERs are the primary care service of many. They get meds and never have to worry about a bill. trust me I know this as fact. Southampton Hospital HAS to treat everyone regardless of ability to pay. The bill goes off to cyberspace and never paid. wanna know why the hospital is in trouble. The paltry sales tax which is the tax I guess you think they pay is hardly enough to cover another baby born and the hospital stay with it.
I'm not sure why you would think they pay income tax as anyone who is picked up off the street is paid cash, plain and simple. You get cheap labor but who knows what kind of job gets done. Sooner or later another retaining wall or the like will kill or injure another unqualified laborer. i'm sure the family will sue. Another right I guess." Apr 11, 09 6:20 PM

Sorry, i do have the copies of documents that show my great grandparents came through Ellis Island and in TWO years were citizens. I have the name of the ship and signatures. My great uncle built the Roslyn Clock Tower, they were masons who quickly went to work to be AMERICANS. At Ellis they had medical and psyc exams. They were then registered. I would love more American taxpayers, take the load from us. But Clinton tried the same thing, this is the second wave,12 million this time. Until we secure the borders, it will be 18 million in 20 years.
HB resident, don't pull the degrading our soldiers garbage you know that was not my intent. I have great friends who were there and are there.
Bottom line is if you make the contractors stop picking up these guys, and landlords stop renting to a dozen people that would go a long way. All they are doing is exploiting these men. Its almost slavery, with an underlying fear of being reported to INS. While feeding these guys is very commendable its enabling people to take advantage of them. If they are legal why can't they go the normal route of finding work? Why stand out in the cold? Go to an unemployment office or use the dear ol SH Press ?
I know these guys aren't all criminals in that sense of the word but we don't know who is here. HB do you realize there are two possibly three active gangs here. They have ties to Mexico and I have been told by detectives to watch it.
By the way, I do know quite a bit about hospital billing. You wish the state gave them what you think. Like it or not there is tremendous stress on that hospital, sorry that is a fact.
I have had alot to think about and you guys have taught me things. Even had me donating to the food panrty this weekend. We don't have to be accusing each other if racism. Thats a cop out. Who knows the right way but we should be able to know who is here and what they are doing. Thats my right to protect myself and my family." Apr 13, 09 7:45 AM

The problem with the online community is that its way too easy to disagree and call each other ignorant for having a different point of veiw. But in reality we most likely know or are familiar with each other. If we were to sit down to debate face to face I would hope the comments would be constructive. In many instances I have been on one side of a discussion only to be swayed with other opinions to make me think. My life experiences give me one train of thought, its not wrong but it comes from MY experience.
I truly feel that illegal is illegal. There is no gray area. I stop at red lights, don't speed, don't steal etc. Its not to awful for everyone to obey the laws I do." Apr 13, 09 12:31 PM

Short and sweet US Citizen and right. Its almost human trafficking." Apr 13, 09 2:43 PM

You are also basing those numbers on the HOPE that all 12 million will register." Apr 14, 09 9:37 AM
