A sentencing date in March is an unusually long time from a December plea- even with the holidays a pre-sentence report would normally be done by the end of January. I suspect that this canary is singing up a storm.

Frank, if you got the DWI and refused you'd be entitled to the same hearing that Linda is getting-high price lawyer or Legal Aid makes no difference." Jul 13, 10 8:03 PM

Could it be that the owner of Magic's might have a little ($82 million) axe to grind with Linda over some of his rental properties?
Only now the DA finds out about these "witnesses"? Interesting how their memories come to the surface on the eve of trial?" Dec 2, 10 6:44 PM
I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the explanation.

Sure it's waterfront; look at any map-her backyard borders on " Benincasa Bay"! NOT!" Jan 19, 12 10:58 AM
Excuse me, but when I think of grocery store, I don't think of Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, or Fresh Market! How about some real local competition to Waldbaum's and King Kullen. Stop and Shop or a Shoprite is what we need.
Not all of us are as concerned with the price of arugala as our Dear Leader Obama was in 2008!" Jan 25, 12 3:44 PM
The PDF states that the Mayor appointed his wife to the position of Village Treasurer "under her maiden name"--that must make it very easy to get the checks signed, I bet!" Feb 26, 14 1:09 PM
Sure the information is out there, but in the grand scheme of things, issues like Linda Kabot's so-called "insults" to single mothers is infinitely more newsworthy than the cozy crony politics of WHD. [sarcasm off]

Terming it "tepid support" is being charitable; the Town Board would love nothing more than to see the current system abolished and their appointment to those Trustee seats secured as is the case in the majority of LI towns.
The Trustees are an inconvenient check and balance to the real plans and schemes of more than a couple of the members of the Town Board.

Let me see if I get this right; the Mayor and the Board appoint and re-appoint the Mayor's wife as Village Treasurer, she doesn't perform a number of critical tasks over a period of time, doesn't get receipts but reimburses her husband for $9 K of travel expenses, and fails to prepare required reports for the Village Board that could have been used to prevent the Village from going into deficit because they ate up a sizable surplus due to a lack of timely information.
Despite these "minor" boo-boos, the Village Board voted to raise the Mayor's wife's salary by 150% to cover the additional time she'll have to spend doing what she was supposed to do in the first place?
Are you sure we're not talking about the City of Chicago? " Aug 13, 14 9:57 PM
I'm sure that Anna and the other TB members' benefactors living on Rose Hill expect them to do what they "paid" them to do--represent their interests and protect them from the rabble we locals are.

That "whoosh" that you heard was Gary's ego rapidly deflating--it seems that the pot of gold he was hoping for turned out to be fools gold. I hate when bad things happen to such a nice person. [sarcasm intended]" Sep 28, 15 12:31 PM
Bingo!" Jan 27, 16 7:29 AM
Maybe some of us who didn't vote, didn't do so for a reason--and are registering our disgust with what is really no choice at all. If there isn't a whit of difference between the parties why legitimize the uniparty corruption?" Jan 27, 16 7:32 AM
My bet is they were doing it long before Suffolk County adopted this so-called "for our well-being" ordinance.
Suffolk should butt out, especially since it appears that no one has gotten sick or died from eating hot foods that should be kept hot and cold items that should be cold.
I guess common sense has to fall to the infallibility of a Ph D." Mar 19, 16 6:59 PM
