Last year's highway improvement was an environmental disaster to those of us who used to clam in the waters of cold spring pond, behind Sebonac. I have photos of runoff from the highway pouring in to the estuary during a storm and would like to see these used in court.
As to more strip malls and King Kullens -- lets not forget that these are not the reason why people come out the hamptons. I live in the cr98 development area and let me be very clear: I do not want these stores in my backyard. I am not opposed to development, only to the kind that takes away and does not give back.
We are entering a new paradigm in american history -- where it is CLEARLY understood that business has an evil habit of attempting short term gains at the expense of the long term good. Need I elaborate???
The Town is on the verge of making a big mistake.

Both the residents and the baymen should speak up about the effects of the ct rd 39 construction and development planning. Cold spring pond water quality is in a process of degradation due to the newly constructed stormwater control system for ct rd 39... and other activies in the area have potential negative effects... including health problems.
It sure is nice that the residents are in a position to complain about the baymen... please don't take it for granted." Apr 8, 09 10:03 AM
The Town has made some serious mistakes by overdeveloping CR 39... look for the upcoming Peconic environmental crisis and threat to resort status. Mark my words -- we shall pay dearly. Money is one thing, health is another. " Apr 16, 09 11:19 AM
This sounds like great news... now lets do our duty to watch that the money is not squandered. Suffolk County: how about helping out with a little extra transparency? Here is a golden opportunity for you." Apr 16, 09 11:22 AM
Homeowners who spread herbicide on your lawn and spray pesticides on your trees: BEWARE ... it should have been you " May 6, 09 1:12 PM

Kabot : You damaged our town by caving in to commercial interests on CR 39. You lost my vote." May 13, 09 4:08 PM
I fully support the farmers market. " May 15, 09 3:55 PM
We tried the restaurant for the first time a few weeks ago... not impressed" May 19, 09 10:07 AM
assessments in the town are unfair in my opinion -- they favor the rich. I went to the greivence and asked an assessor why it was that for a given house type, significantly larger property sizes pay only slightly higher taxes.... and do you know what he said? He said larger property is usually considered a liability due to greater the maintenance expenses. Do you know what I think? I think we need a shakeup over at the assessors department. lying apologists heads should roll" May 21, 09 1:51 PM
Lettieri: we don't like your kind around here. We are happy you won't be living in one of these proposed junk houses yourself, but we won't like your underlings either. Do you or your junkie underings care? probably not. Its only money to you. Like I said, we don't like your type around these parts. We want to be tolerant, but you have gone too far."

The drunken driven was a bad thing -- but it is just one event. Do you know what is worse? The "drunken" behavior by politicians who pushed through the cr 39 redevelopment.
Missed opportunity to make the town a better place. Disaster with long term consequences. " May 26, 09 10:07 AM
Giuliani is a low life" May 26, 09 10:14 AM
My interpretation of the news story is that Lettieri is an outsider who has little regard for the welfare of Quogue. His motives in Quogue are driven by greed. I don't like it. His kind is greedy.
If you have information to the contrary, please share it here." May 26, 09 10:19 AM
This is all fine and good but the biggest waste of local tax revenues is obviously in the school districts... why not do a "forensic" audit there?" Jun 11, 09 9:37 AM
Hurry lets sell some more property before its too late" Jun 11, 09 3:53 PM
I'm glad this is in the village and not on 39... that way i don't have to look at this ugly building on drives east." Jun 25, 09 9:23 AM
I am totally in favor of grave preservation" Jun 30, 09 12:22 PM
