Suffolk County judge overturns East Quogue marina application approval

I went to a fundraiser at Dockers years ago for Carolyn Zenk and Tim Bishop ... Republican or democrat is not the issue, it's whether or not the Trustees are required to follow State SEQRA procedures or can they develop their own form of environmental review. The project MUST be evaluated for SEQRA with all of the other agencies and the DEC and Town will coordinate with the trustees anyway and get their feedback on the project. " Feb 3, 10 5:57 PM

OH Kevin, my hero! Do you even understand what SEQRA is, it's a New York State Standard. The trustees did hold their own environmental review - as for your 1,000 signatures, that may have been for the original application. But again folks, this legal lawsuit was and is between the trustees and Kevin and not Dockers. If the trustees do SEQRA, all that happens is that they would report to the lead agency, which, by the way could be the trustees if they wish it so, all agencies get to comment and a decision is made by the lead agency. The "dockers" project STILL has to do SEQRA with the other agencies (planning board and DEC) and they will send out a coordinated review, if deemed applicable, to the trustees so trustees are and will be part of SEQRA process ANYWAY! Do you understand it now? " Feb 3, 10 7:46 PM

DAVIDF - "....It was also interesting when the owners of Dockers bought Hot Dog Beach, tried ... more to do the same thing, failed and then that mysterious fire, the collection of insurance and then the acquisition by the preservation fund, the same fund that acquired the adjacent property on the bay side next to Dockers for many millions....." is not a true statement. Dockers provided the management of the restaurant at Hot Dog Beach and was paid a management fee to operate it - Charles Parlato, the son-in-law of Bill Swan, was the one who owned the building and business.

Dockers changed ownership in 2001 or 2002 so I don't think they knew the history of yesteryear." Feb 4, 10 4:25 PM

lol - how funny is that - I remember those! Too funny.......didn't do that with the barge night club too? he was a funny guy that Bill Swan." Feb 4, 10 4:27 PM

Suffolk County judge overturns East Quogue marina application approval

The trustees have been trying to get all of the CCA and creosote bulkheads and pilings replaced with newer eco-friendly materials (ACQ or Plastics). Any new dock, pier or bulkhead approved must adhere to the new policy. And by the way, the commercial fisherman are killing the bays - put a 2 year ban on fishing and shell-fishing (except for recreational) and you will see the bays bounce right back. Clamming (whether for steamers or hard clams) rips up the eel grass, steamers they use power rakes - that can't be good either. Yikes" Feb 6, 10 6:16 PM

Storm-water runoff of septic systems as well as the fertilizers are contributing to the overall welfare of the bays but there are certainly many fisherman and shell-fisherman around - don't kid yourself. It all has an effect no doubt. Also, remember that mother nature has a way of correcting itself and we seem to get in her way when she wants to fix something - like ocean breaches - that could have been her way of cleaning the bays. You have jetties, inlets, etc.. that are unnatural for commercial purposes - and that can't be good either - but big industry wins out on that fight due to money. I also had an old fisherman tell me many years ago that when the ducks are all gone from the bays, the bays will die - so weird, but maybe it was true. Maybe duck poop is the missing link...."

Fairway Restaurant closed after 20 years

It's not like the place is being thrown to the NYC wolves. A local involved company will take it over and run it just as nice I am sure. You folks are never happy with anything and it's a sad thing so see such arm chair critics. I suggest if you don"t like it out here anymore, move to North Carolina or back country Tennessee, where time is still standing still. It seems to me that the previous tenant did not want to discuss the proposed lease and the changes than the management wanted to see completed and thereby fell - Don't blame Wankle for what Dan didn't want to or otherwise refused to do. A new guy was willing to do it, and had Dan simply negotiated it better, he'd still be in.

In the end game, shall I assume you all will become the usual left wing liberal hypocrites and eventually will go to see the new place? We will see, we will certainly see." Mar 28, 10 3:37 PM

Both the owner and manager of Love Lane Kitchen live in the Town of Southampton year round, own their own homes and pay RE taxes. They also don"t go to Florida in the winter - they work! They are locals." Mar 28, 10 11:05 PM

I highly doubt that a vocal minority will force anyone out. The millions that the Town would pay out to break the contract with the management company would scare off both towns. It is simple once you break through the comments here, Dan did not agree to the terms in a new lease that was offered to him and he opted out. Dan was given the right of first refusal and at any time he could have simply signed the new lease and he would still be operating today. Such a small issue with so many negative comments. Get a life people....get a life." Mar 30, 10 9:35 AM

Southampton Town Board keeps hearing open on proposed condos in Speonk

I think the Group for the East End (formerly the Group for the South Fork) always opens their mouth, yet nothing comes out. An increase in the tax base, without any burden to the school district IS A PUBLIC BENEFIT! And these people are educated? I will stay in the private sector thank you. Sounds like a good project to me. 13 unregulated homes (with possible children) all doing their own thing with pools, lawn/pest care chemicals versus a complex where there is a grounds keeper under the control of a board - Group, sometimes, you are just plain idiots!"

Developers present new plans for Tuckahoe hamlet center

The planning Board has zero ZEAL or GREED for Progress. The board and staff are nothing but obstructionists! Where have you been living, in a cave? They make it impossible at times, it's only the developers who have the cash to take them on and where them down does any 'progress' happen. " Mar 30, 10 9:49 AM

Fairway Restaurant closed after 20 years

and tell him what, that he didn't want to sign the lease that was given to him? he refused to sign the new lease with the new terms so what is his cause of action..stupidity?" Apr 1, 10 9:47 PM

Abrupt and tearful end to Stony Brook Southampton dream

It's sad to say, but the university has lived its lifetime and it is time for it to be laid to rest. It clearly affects many many people and families, but you have to progress forward and what will come will be good for everyone, eventually. A Culinary School of Arts would be fabulous, but nobody listens - ever!" Apr 8, 10 3:00 PM

Duh! yea, that's a brilliant idea there PBR! You should run for office, so we could be bankrupt faster!" Apr 8, 10 3:02 PM

Yes, they listened to me and it's doing spectacular!" Apr 8, 10 8:23 PM

Legislators say they will fight to keep Stony Brook Southampton campus open

Senator LaValle, State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. and the words "deceptive acts and practices” should never, ever be used in the same sentence! That is just the funniest thing I have read in the last 10-years except for Fred Thiele being a Republican, that was also very funny.

Can't make this stuff up folks!" Apr 19, 10 10:01 PM

Publisher of Dan's Papers files for Chapter 11

good riddens to that rag of a paper - it was never a newsworthy thing to even be called a newspaper. Catered to "east of the canal" snots ..... In college, we used it for toilet paper when we ran out - just wet it, it worked like a charm, but left an ink stain at times. Plenty of other forums to advertise in that are worthy."
