Some concerned Bridgehampton project will harm community character

Oh my goodness! Worried about the "character" of Bridgehampton? Have you seen the beverage store? Are you crazy!!!! Tear that building down and put up an outhouse and the village would be improved. It has been an eyesore for way too long. Couldn't happen soon enough!" Feb 25, 09 6:09 AM

Teen who fell from 'party bus' in stable condition; charges might be filed

First of all, why would you let your thirteen year old go on a "party" bus? Secondly, why would you let your thirteen year old go on a "party" bus with 19 year olds?
and nobody saw anything........" Mar 16, 09 10:45 PM

Firefighters battle blaze on Seven Ponds-Towd Road

Ok , stop speculating about people you don't even know. The family that owns the home is a law abiding, happy family with two young children. They are a local family, with loving supportive relatives and many, many good friends. Sucess in their business is from hard, honest work. They love their home very much. Lightning has hit the home before. They were very lucky to not be there when it struck, but had been there within the hour as I understand.
The home is a material possesion and they understand it as just that. Their priorities are more spiritual than most and their faith will get them through these difficult times. (That and the love of the aforementioned many friends!)

Questions abound over resort motel

I agree with C Law, the place doesn't look "run down" to me either. It's always kept neat and orderly. They did some landscaping not too long ago and the parking lot looks fine. Here we have someone willing to take a chance and spend some money in these hard economic times. Just think of all the people that will benifit from a project like this. Carpenters, architects, planners, the town boards, landscapers, painters, electricians, plumbers, painters, hvac installers, maids, tourists, families of all these people, and even the people on the other end who make all the things needed by these people! This is just what the president wants us to do! Perfect! " Apr 7, 09 11:12 PM

Mad as heck over added Cablevision charges

I was at a little party last weekend and all the people were from the city. They were all talking about HBO this and HBO that and all the movie channels and this sports channel and so on and so on. I felt like a little old farmer boy because I can't afford all the boxes and upgrades. Cable sucks" Jul 14, 09 9:43 PM

Boy it's so simple isn't Mr Wheeler. Just shut up and go somewhere else. Cablevision has the best internet hands down, so for that I remain their customer, but that doesn't mean I don't like to complain a little once in a while!!
If cablevision would just have some good old fashion morals people wouldn't be so unhappy with their service." Jul 15, 09 10:07 PM

South Shore Press runs doctored photo of press conference

Mr. Romaine says "I was there". Ms. Browning says "No you weren't" Mr. Romaine says "Yes I was". Ms. Browning says "No you weren't". Mr. Romaine says "I WAS NOT THERE". Ms Browning says "YES YOU WERE!" and then Mr. Romaine says......" I know you are but what am I?"" Jul 22, 09 5:56 AM

Southampton Village Police cuff man, find no weapon

The police were called because someone was thought to have a GUN! What if this guy actually did have a gun and shot someone. Then the comments would have been more like "Why didn't they do something!!!"
Checking things like this is what a cop does. That is the job. If a cop gives an order you do it. End of story. If they feel there is danger they will cuff you until everything is sorted out. If you are innocent and you don't have a gun the cuffs come off and everyone goes home. Big deal.
The lack of respect for authority these days is disgusting. Refusing to cooperate with police during dwi stops. Yelling at police who are conducting dwi stops. Shouting "liar!!!" at the PRESIDENT! It needs to stop.

Couple are 'a perfect match' in more ways than one

You go girl! Good luck to a great couple. Now this is the kind of news I like to read about. " Oct 17, 09 8:11 AM

Charges dropped against man who sprung traps on neighbor's property

How about a nice power wash of the traps. Then just scrub them with some dirt, leave them out in the weather for a couple days and they would be fine.
Give Mr. Young the number of the trapper so he can call next time he sees cats in the raccoon trap and they can be released or relocated.
I think that the demonizing of the homeowners is a bit over the top. Don't they have a right to trap and remove any nuisance animal on their property? Feral cats can stink a place up pretty fast. (I happen to love cats) " Oct 17, 09 8:20 AM

Oddone won't take stand; both sides rest, and closing arguments slated Tuesday

Self defense? You mean to tell me that Mr. Oddone felt he was about to be killed? I mean that's the only reason I could see returning deadly force. Most people in his position would realize they were maybe going to be asked to leave or "escorted" out, but hey that's the risk you take when you jump on a table. He could have pushed the bouncer or shouted at him but he didn't. He just grabbed him and choked him to death. Guilty. Goodbye." Nov 26, 09 5:57 AM

A plan to beef up historic regulations in Amagansett

Oh that's great. Use Randy Lerner as an example of what we don't want to happen to our town....He spends millions of dollars making this place better. He employs hundreds of local people to tear down ugly, run down old buildings and turn them into beautiiful new stores and restaurants. Amagansettt Square is a great space. We went to a little concert there and had dinner afterwards and it was the first time I ever really enjoyed Amagansett. Yes, lets stop that! " Dec 14, 09 6:18 AM

Two students hospitalized after Route 114 crash

A big thanks to all the fireman, police and ambulance personel who helped my daughter and her friend through this difficult experience.
Also, of course we are so very grateful for the witnesses, friends from my wifes job at the Ross, and the people who happen to live near the accident site for helping the girls.
We are just so happy that the girls were able to survive this horrible accident.

Developer pitches casino in Calverton industrial park

Eastendgolf, Your first comment "so is alcoholism and cigarette smoking" was just stupid. I was sitting here trying to make some sense of your thought and I realized it didn't even warrant a comment. But I couldn't resist....
Just because fcmcmann didn't "complain" about all bad things they can't make a statement about gambling?
I think fcmc hit the nail on the head. " Jun 12, 10 7:00 PM

Table tennis club opens in Water Mill

Yes, $30 an hour and $100 per hour for someone to teach me how to play ping pong. that sounds like a nice thing for "locals" to do.
A carpenter can have thousands of dollars in tools and a thirty thousand dollar truck to make payments on, and yet he might get $30-$40 dollars an hour. Thats if he is good and works his butt off. Getting dirty and humping lumber around a dangerous job site. Replace "carpenter" with "plumber, or electrician- same deal. If anyone deserves $100 an hour its a hard working person with years of experience. Doctors, lawyers, mechanics, police....I can think of plenty more examples of someone I would proudly (maybe not happily!) pay $100 an hour. Excuse my ranting here, but it just never ceases to amaze me what someone will charge for a service out here. One hundred dollars an hour to teach ping pong! That is just sad." Jun 22, 10 10:39 PM

East Hampton Farmers Market faces possible shutdown

Here here! For goodness sakes .....it's a stinkin farmers market! Let it be. Who cares if it was an extension of Nick and Toni's ? Local people selling fresh food etc. Let's just worry about bigger things...PLEASE!" Jul 23, 10 7:22 AM

East Hampton Village to put restrictions on landscaping equipment

9 to 5 is a joke! That's cutting at least four hours out of my day. Four hours times six days--24 hours times what ever we make per hour average...That would absolutely kill me. I could see maybe starting at eight, but ending at five is rediculous.

Arts Harvest Southampton faces backlash from local merchants

I agree that allowing clothing racks on the street "cheapens" the village! While I'm sounding off, I also think the tables on the street is a stupid idea! I hate having to walk around the tables and congestion- the sidewalks are just not made wide enough for that. I could never understanr why you would want to eat while having people walk right on top of you!
We did enjoy the jazz group named "Michaels" as they were playing down by Agwam last weekend. They were very talented and the selections were great." Sep 24, 10 7:19 AM

Vintage cars will take center stage on Saturday in Bridgehampton

East Hampton Town considers eliminating leaf pick-up

Agree with HarborGuy...Now we will have 1000 trucks running back and forth to the dump. " Oct 7, 10 6:58 AM
