The owners and managers of Neptune could be doing more and better screening at their door to cull for problems - but they choose not to spend the money to do that. The managers are all drunk and or stoned most of the day so they're part of the problem too. They are not good operators and the liquor authority is right on their ass. They were issued some sort of temporary permit this season, so who knows what's going to happen down there this summer. However, saying all of that, Neptune is an important part of the hamptons, just would like to see them clean up their act..." Jun 5, 10 10:28 AM

The "so called" employees have not been properly advised by their lawyer. first, the minimum wage for tipped employees is much lower than the standard minimum wage. then, the have to pay the taxes on their tips. so in the end game, these employees will come out with nada since the dept of labor will do an audit of their wages and it will show that they under reported their tipped earnings. waste of time but Press is Press. you can deduct all kinds of fees from wait staff such as tips to the bar, hostess, and a slew of others .....

Attention Laura Cooper - writer of the article. Mr. Motz is NOT currently incarcerated at a federal minimum security facility in Pensacola, Florida.
When writing please get your facts correct - this is one of the reasons I have stopped buying your paper......facts are mostly wrong in most articles...." Sep 28, 10 1:10 PM
Dear Laura/Editor::: please note that your article headliner states that they picked up demolition permits and your article says they pick up applications that haven't been filed yet. If you're trying to confuse all of your readers, congratulations you accomplished that. A permit and an application are not mutually exclusive and a permit would be issued only after an application was filed, appropriate filing fees were paid and the building department approved the application. then and only then would it be called a permit.

RIP Kara's, you guys will be missed! Lots of memories inside the bar and out in the parking lot ;-)" Oct 27, 10 6:55 PM
err .... Parking is a permitted use IN EVERY DISTRICT in the town and can not be regulated. Check the town code and you will find this to be true. You do not need a permit to park or to park on someones land if you have their consent. " Oct 27, 10 6:59 PM
Ever hear of separation of church and state? Gov can't regulate religious places of worship and a Rabbi's house falls under that category since they hold services in those places.
....and you seem so intelligent,....at times anyway." Oct 29, 10 7:36 AM
Check again my dear, ACCESSORY PARKING IS A PERMITTED USE IN EVERY DISTRICT regardless if commercial or not. While they might not have planning board approval it is still a permitted use in all residential districts.
Accessory parking is not considered a commercial use. Check your facts dear!" Oct 29, 10 10:19 AM

I believe that Westhampton Police department has issues and that Linda was set up. If you have been following the headlines about all the cop problems in Westhampton, you will see a very bad pattern of mismanagement by the chief and officers. Personally, I am not a fan of Linda, but it smells really bad and the amount of time that has passed on this case is terrible - speedy trial." Nov 18, 10 4:02 PM

He's a publicity hound! He lives in Quogue and most of his financial donations come from Quogue residents! When you trash the community of Quogue, I would imagine that it's so small there, that there will be some sort of financial fallout during his next fund raising campaign.
I wouldn't be surprised if he was the one who drop the bomb and called the DEC on the village. Just a suspicion!

He was and is an absurdly over incompetent employee. Good riddens, but I have to say his motive was premeditated the whole time. His Plan "B".
Nobody agrees with NATURE or HIGHHATSIZE, even if they, by chance, get one right ;-)
