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

Tuckahoe taxpayers: read the above and please Vote NO! on March 17th. Out of towners whose primary residence is in Tuckahoe must get an absentee ballot from the District Clerk in Tuckahoe School and get it back in time for your vote to count (they don't make any of this easy). There is no need and no urgency to buy these properties. Contrary to the Board's reassurance that it won't cost tax payers anything -- is $105,000 nothing? -- it will end up costing a bundle in the very near future. VOTE NO!" Mar 4, 09 2:38 PM

Supervisor has bone to pick over councilwoman's dog

A bunch of cats fighting over a dog. Professionalism has sunk to a new low at Town hall along with transparency, good governance, fairness and competency.
Send all of them to the pound and get a new breed!" Mar 4, 09 2:42 PM

Planning Board recommends slightly altered version of public participation proposal

Pure semantics. It is time the muzzle was removed from the public during Planning Board meetings. Developers have more than enough access and
opportunity to press their case. And, then there is Jeff Murphree who is more often than not their advocate. " Mar 10, 09 1:15 PM

Tuckahoe voters approve land purchases

Please get out and vote "NO!" to this outrageous request. The prices of these two parcels do not reflect the continuing downswing of the real estate market,
Read the article in the magazine section of Sunday's NY Times. "Real estate sales are down in Southampton by 47% from last year", yet this Board wants to run out and pay top dollar for unnecessary land.
Tuckahoe residents are overburdened with taxes, 90% of which go to keep this school afloat. It takes $28,000 per student to educate the 367 -- do the math.
JUST SAY NO! " Mar 16, 09 6:08 PM

Southampton Village projecting 1.8-percent tax increase

Instead of increasing taxes why not just get rid of some of the superfluous help on the payroll and give us all a break. " Mar 16, 09 6:16 PM

Some opposition to proposed farmers market in Southampton

The prices at Schmidts are outrageous. It is only natural that they don't want any competition, it might provide a reality check. Just imagine an outdoor market with fresher produce, resonable prices and NOT having to deal with sullen cashiers. I'll buy that! " Mar 16, 09 6:19 PM

Tuckahoe voters approve land purchases

Of course Linda Rozzi is "thrilled". The School Board managed to snooker the
taxpayers using phony urgency once again. The real urgency was the rush to hold another dead of winter vote guaranteed to have low turnout. This may be the biggest real estate deal in the area for the next five years. Congratulations the taxpayers have been screwed once again. CONSOLIDATION OF THE EAST END SCHOOL DISTRICTS IS IMPERATIVE. " Mar 18, 09 2:40 AM

The purchase of this available land in a down market for top dollar is only a :logical step" to people committed to expansion whether it is justified or not by
facts and by the mindset that taxpayers will foot the bill without questioning as long as you mention children. Since when it is an intellectual claim not to use statistics in the NY Times. As for being "wiser", time and the tax bill will be the judge of that. " Mar 18, 09 3:54 PM

Kabot claims bad record keeping led to financial mess

The finger pointing and acrimony surrounding this "bookkeeping" problem only proves that Sally Pope was right in asking for a state audit of the Town's books. This incident illustrates the arrogance, paid incompetence, reliance on consultants, systems they don't understand and political use of every problem that constitutes "government" in Town Hall.

Code enforcement shuts down soup kitchen at Southampton Tire

It is a great relief to learn about this humane act after reading through the trail of slime left in the comments section following the story of the unfortunate -- and probably terrified man -- who left the scene of an accident. Thankfully, there are some people like the Whitbys who can respond to a human being's hunger and need. As for Sister Lavery being there, Graham Greene always said there are no coincidences in life.

Neighbors worried about water pollution from the 'Pit' next door

Another filthy, polluting dumpsite gouged out of the land and perpetrated as
"pre-existing". Good luck with stopping this. " Apr 1, 09 11:57 AM

Capital budget error bolstered budget surplus, which was used to cut taxes

Fire Blowes, Brautigan and whoever else participated in this slovenly, incompetence. Like East Hampton, they are going to raise taxes to cover their errors or worse their criminality. A STATE AUDIT IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST!
The money has flowed in for too long without strong oversight and transparency." Apr 1, 09 3:41 PM

Code enforcement shuts down soup kitchen at Southampton Tire

Anyone who still wonders how Hitler was able to convince all the good people of his country to do the things they did should read these comments. The bigots are out in full force trying to convince people that some people are different (are they hungry in a different way?) and should be treated as less than human, and what seems to be most important: getting something for free. Only the rich enjoy that morons, not the poor." Apr 3, 09 1:11 PM

Throne-Holst to lead Southampton Democrats' November ticket

Anna Throne Holst is a lightweight with precious little experience, and she comes with a self-interested bad pupeeteer: Frank Zapone. No hope there. " Jun 2, 09 10:15 PM

Southampton capital budget to undergo forensic audit

Another $200,000. of taxpayer's money so the town can cover it's incompetence.
Firing Brautigan would free up $l00,000 toward this now necessary audit, before the state audit, after the consultant now Comptroller's consultant bills are paid, and of course the disgraced previous auditors probably have a bill in there to be paid. .
Then, if Blowes, would finally be given the boot and his salary thrown in the hopper there might be a tiny surplus. After the state audit, Town Hall needs to be flushed out with a power hose. " Jun 10, 09 5:17 PM

Hults faces felony charges; probe's focus turns to supervisor's office

I agree with "North of Highway" about the Town of Sh. The absorbtion Brautian, the retention of Blowes, the hiring of consultants to obscure and cover the paths to the mess are typical of the way incompetent non-entitites work. Will we ever see criminal investigation and prosecution of SH money shifters? They have operated with impunity for years, confident if they did get called on to explain their actions they could retreat to the position of their ignorance and stupidity. All these people are PAID to do their jobs -- by our tax money. They should be fired and investigated. Their leaving wouldn't even cause a blip as SH would race to absorb Brookhaven's incompetents to take their place. " Jun 12, 09 2:53 PM

Hults's confessions appear to implicate McGintee

it is time to end the Community Preservation Fund otherwise known as yet another tax on residents. By this time all the old boys have enriched their friends and now they are dipping into it for political deception: "keeping tax rate artifically low" so they could keep on spending without consequences. Simply put this engorged fund is too much of a temptation for these dim, greedy politicos to keep their hands out of. " Jun 12, 09 2:57 PM

Supervisor proposes $1 million in budget cuts

What about cutting the $100,000 salary for the job created for Brautigan as part of his demotion? What about cutting Blowes' salary? This is fluff -- the real story is the removal of the tax cap so they can begin gouging the tax payers again. The entire Planning Dept. could take a hike -- or go to Argentina -- and the Town would be richer and better for it. " Jun 24, 09 5:49 PM

Southampton Town hires new auditing firm

Too many outside consultants, planning experts, environmental experts. Spending money like drunken sailors for years to justify their inept decisions.
What do the people on salary there really do?" Jun 24, 09 5:55 PM

Many neighbors support 78-unit condo project

To respond to the above uninformed comments: l) NOTHING and I mean NOTHING could be a bigger mess than the Guillo/Rambo operations that have all but destroyed the surrounding neighborhood. Crack houses would be an improvement. 2) The condos are not rental properties. If the "youth of SH" want houses with backyards, there are plenty on the market thanks to the rising taxes and waning benefits SH has to offer. 3) Let this biased poster, check the over 160 petition letters from neighbors who want this project and let those who oppose the project show up at hearings -- so far noone has. Do your homework." Jul 1, 09 7:06 PM

Kabot outlines fiscal troubles

Anna Looking-for-a-Throne Holst is the local Sarah Pallin. A died in the wool opportunist. With about as much experience for the job she's reaching for as
Pallin had for the job she was reaching for. " Jul 2, 09 11:14 AM
