Supervisor has bone to pick over councilwoman's dog

I cannot even believe I am reading this story. It's small, narrow minded and a waste of time! This is an embarrassment to everyone that lives in Southampton Town. Ms. Kabot and Ms. Graboski focus on the issues! This just shows how low you both are. " Mar 5, 09 9:50 PM

Tuckahoe School will seek voter's OK to spend $1.1 million on two properties

They are kidding!!! Expansion!!!!! This district should consolidate with Southampton, another small district helping to make the cost of educating a child in line with the rest of Long Island. The East End School Districts are the laughing stock of Long Island! The boards need to STOP giving our money away with wasteful management. Consolidate, cut back and give the working class tax payor on long island a break (before we are all forced to leave)!" Mar 7, 09 6:11 PM

Southampton Village projecting 1.8-percent tax increase

Thank you Village Board! Perhaps you can give some advise to our school boards. They certainly need to learn how to DECREASE spending!" Mar 13, 09 7:58 PM

Tuckahoe voters approve land purchases

Ditto to Phanex!!! These east end school districts need to get in touch with the real world!!! Consolidation is what is needed! Cut the spending and give the over taxed working class a break! JUST VOTE NO!" Mar 16, 09 10:12 PM

Fire district plans well received by Southampton Town Planning Board

Where's the money coming from for this??????" Mar 17, 09 8:24 AM

Southampton wrestling coach arrested on drug charges

How could the school district just learn about his September 2008 "legal entanglement"? Teachers are fingerprinted and when there is a " legal entanglement" the school district is immediately notified???? I smell a cover-up here......
I do not know Mr. McCready, only of him. I have heard very nice things about, but he also has a deep problem. I would not want my children around him." Mar 27, 09 8:55 AM

Sending districts might sue Westhampton Beach for refund

These districts need to consolidate. This is the only way to control costs, eliminate unnessasary administration and so on. There would not be this problem if it was one school district!!!! The east end needs to get with the rest of the state. " May 6, 09 12:43 PM

Southampton Elementary School principal faces uncertain future

There go Mr Gumbs and Ms Ellis again! If they don't get their way, just pull the race card! You both are the racists. Let Dr. Boyes do his job like the professional he is. Ms. Richards is being reviewed on her performance and capability, not the color of her skin or sex. Shouldn't she be reviewed like everyone else?? Or are you asking for special treatment because she is Native American???? " May 6, 09 8:32 PM

Workingmomof4 you are right on the mark! On behalf of Mrs. Richard, yes she is a great teacher, but NOT an administrator. Look at Friday's newsday page A52; English test scores district by district, especially 3 & 4th grade! Shameful! Our district is at the BOTTOM. Look at th numbers! Makes me think, why Mrs. Richards is getting another year to improve herself (on our dollar)????" May 9, 09 8:30 AM

Southampton Village sets date for vote on new firehouse

I too appreciate what all our volunteers do, but nearly SIX MILLON dollars for a building???? RIDICULOUS! This is just over the top! I understand the exiisitng building is "tight" but so are these economic times. There are people losing jobs, taking decreases in pay, struggling to pay their bills (even in this village). To put any additional tax burden is just plain unfair. No ambulance but six mill for firehouse?????? Makes no sense to me." Sep 13, 09 5:50 PM

Sag Harbor teachers plan to march through village

Enough is enough!!! Wearing shirts to school, protesting in the community???? Some examples for our children!! Why are teachers different than anyone else?? No one I know gets "automated" step increases in the real world. Teachers who do not even deserve that get it. What are they giving back to the community and to our children? Teachers (most) do not even stay five minutes longer after school to help a child (unless of course you can pay them). Demand???? an increase. Come to the real world of people who have taken pay decreases, with employers who cannot contribute to retirements, where medical co pays and contributions havehave greatly increased...I can go on....So, why makes teachers different from everyone else???"

Southampton to add after-school Spanish program

What's does this cost????? Does it ever end in this district???? We are the fifth highest on Long Island in cost to educate a student. Unfortunately, the test scores certainly do not reflect what we pay." Oct 22, 09 8:08 PM

Sag Harbor School District asks entire staff to consider pay freeze

Not only should there be a freeze, but what about the benefits??? Teachers, like the rest of the world should be contributing much more to health insurance and retirements. Why are teachers different then the rest of the world? Many people, yes, even on the east end, have taken cut backs in salaries; no raises in the last two years; have been asked to do more in their employment or have just lost their job. Instead of "automatic" pay increases, teachers should earn their raises through performace. Then lets see what they get." Apr 1, 10 10:49 PM

Southampton School Board suspends high school principal and assistant principal, who are then hired by East Hampton

Yes, Amala is going to Riverhead. A good move for her. She lives there. Sad about Mr. Fine and Ms. Mondini. Sounds like internal problems to me!!!! " May 18, 10 9:44 PM

What was covered up???" May 23, 10 8:58 PM

Celestino Gambino, founder of La Parmigiana, dies at 73

Southampton Town supervisor floats cop consolidation plan

It's about time!!! No need for all thesse seperate police departments!!! Too top heavy out here....SAME FOR THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS!!!! We should have a central school district too!!!!" Aug 5, 10 8:29 AM

Southampton School Board approves new teachers' contract

Is that over and above their "step" increase? If so, it should be reported that way. With so many people out of work and asked to do more for less,"In light of the weakened economy", what are the teachers giving back for these increases? 1% towards their health insurance??!!! After the poor district results from the state tests, I question how any raises were given. What a joke." Sep 29, 10 8:22 PM
