Public Criticizes Southampton School District Over Student Bullying

Why do you automatically think that the bumper stickers about Obama were due to racism and not a difference in political opinions? There have been people for and against EVERY president in our nation's history. Why should Obama be treated any differently just because he is black? Wouldn't that be racist?

I'm not trying to get into a political, racial, or economic debate. I am just soooo tired of people blaming everything on racism and/or wealth." Oct 7, 11 4:53 PM

Southampton High School Student Will Not Return To School After Shotgun Arrest, District Says

Are you kidding me? Where would you even come up with the idea of an "irresponsible parent"? These speculative remarks are SO frustrating! (and inaccurate)" Oct 26, 11 5:33 PM

For those of you wondering what he did wrong, read the Board of Education "Code of Conduct", here's a link (read the top of page 3): http://www.boarddocs.com/ny/shufsd/Board.nsf/files/8KR2HW02524D/$file/Code%20of%20Conduct%20-%20Policy%20%235300.pdf
It doesn't matter if he was hunting or trying to hurt someone, if it was his or his friends, you CANNOT have a gun at a school! Although we shouldn't crucify this boy, he must be held accountable for his actions. If we don't want follow established policies, why bother having them?" Oct 26, 11 5:46 PM

That's an extremely harsh accusation. Perhaps you should find out factual details before you come to your own conclusions. No- he shouldn't have a gun, and ye-s he should be severely punished, BUT his intention was not to hurt anyone." Oct 27, 11 6:31 AM

Parents Blast East Hampton School Board Over Handling of Graffiti Incident

Questioning is part of an investigation, not an accusation. I am sure that we could all agree that this matter should certainly be investigated. What would be said about the school if they did not interview the team that is supposedly being singled out? The school is 100% in questioning every person that might potentially have information about the incident. This happens in police investigations all the time. Just because someone asks a question does not mean that they are guilty. Relax and be grateful that the school is investigating. I am sure that if the roles were reversed and the soccer team hadn't been interviewed, the volleyball team would have had a very different opinion of the concept of "questioning" & "investigating"" Nov 16, 11 4:28 PM

Cops: Woman Sexually Assaulted In Southampton On Sunday

This story sounds very fishy-circumstances, inconsistencies with regular procedure,etc. It should be interesting to learn the detail as the emerge, but until then people should not be so quick to pass judgement on the victim or the alleged attackers." Jul 25, 12 2:24 PM

Yea, something is not right..." Jul 26, 12 12:23 AM

Officials Recommend Traffic Light Cameras, Lower Speed Limits To Reduce South Fork Car Crashes

CR 39 has been an extremely dangerous road for as long as I can remember...long before smartphones. I am sure that they don't help matters, but come on, you cannot deny that this has been a road to avoid if possible for at least 35 years-regardless of speed limits or innovative technology!"

Hampton Bays Siblings Want Officials To Repair Old Ponquogue Bridge

Bravo! It's wonderful to hear that these young community members are not only aware of the situation but are also being quite proactive in their quest for results! I wish this were a more common occurrence out here. Speak up for what you want!" May 25, 14 5:21 PM

Southampton Village Honors Veterans On Memorial Day

It was a beautiful day for the parade and memorial service. Just a shame that several of the people speaking turned the event into an opportunity to preach their political beliefs rather than focusing on the purpose at hand...remembrance and gratitude. " May 27, 14 12:13 PM

Southampton Village Says Citarella Bags Do Not Violate Plastic Bag Ban

I went in today based on this comment...I don't think I'd call the majority of the prices "competitive", but I agree that they have high quality food in a clean setting...much more tan I can say for Waldbaums!" May 29, 14 5:49 PM

Southampton Center Proposes To Open Brick Wall To Make Grounds More Inviting

Agreed!! I cannot believe that they want to desecrate such an iconic part of our historic village. I truly hope this idea gets shot down with a vengeance!" Jun 1, 14 9:06 PM

Chris Pike Of Water Mill Drafted By Tampa Bay Rays

Congratulations!!!! It's nice to see all of your hard work pay off! You deserve this!" Jun 9, 14 11:36 AM

Southampton School District Fires Security Guard

Everything has to go through the Board, so they had to wait for a BOE meeting. I doubt he was getting paid since security guards get paid hourly rather than salary. " Jun 18, 14 4:01 PM

Southampton School Board Decides To Bring Tuckahoe Merger To A Straw Vote Again

Do you realize that your taxes wil be increasing one way or the other? The only difference is that if the merger does not go through, your taxes will go up and programs (and jobs) will be cut. " Sep 13, 14 7:01 AM

Zach Epley's livelihood does not depend on the school! He may be a coach, but he certainly doesn't make his livelihood from that small after school position. Not even sure if he still does that job " Sep 20, 14 1:38 PM

You do realize that OLH spends more than $5k per student, right? They have other sources of revenue rather than just tuition." Sep 20, 14 1:44 PM

UPDATE: Driver Airlifted After Head-On Crash On County Road 39

BWC-do you know what the goal of the Trustees is? "To preserve public access to the water and uphold the traditions of a maritime community". Before throwing stones, get your facts straight. " Sep 27, 14 10:10 AM

Shinnecock Tribe Member Angered Over Beach Parking Fees

I don't agree with Ms. Browns request, however, I certainly don't agree with your comments! Every society has problems, the Shonnecock Nation has many remarkable individuals. As you said you "always HEAR bad things go on", so your basically saying you don't KNOW anything about these people. Don't pass judgement based on hearsay! And what exactly do you mean by the request for someone to explain "their purpose of being here in 2014"? Please explain that one..." Oct 26, 14 8:00 AM

Southampton Village Approves Opening Up Wall On Jobs Lane At Southampton Center

This wall is historic. It's part of what makes Southampton the quaint historic village that it is. If our elected official continue to undermine the regulations in place to keep Southampton the place that we know and love, we will be living in a place that resembles the sterile "Nassau county" like towns so many of us dread. The Concer house, Meadow & Gin Lane housing styles, and now this...such a shame. " Jan 23, 15 12:27 PM

UPDATE: Wednesday Afternoon Crash On County Road 39 Caused By Driver Who Fell Asleep

It's not wise to generalize. I definitely do not live in the village and I strongly oppose this project!" Mar 5, 15 9:27 PM

Tuckahoe Uncertain If It Can Continue To Educate Shinnecock Students

Do you have any idea how ignorant you sound? You should be ashamed of yourself for making such harsh accusations based on the actions of a few people. I grew up with, work with, and am friends with many upstanding residents of the Shinnecock Nation...people who have much more class than you, Cupsogue. " May 16, 15 2:52 PM

They're not being denied of an education...they're being denied of an education in the school of their choosing. If any other resident of the Southampton School District wanted to attend Tuckahoe, they would be required to pay tuition. " May 16, 15 2:54 PM

Residents of the Shinnecock Reservation are not forced to live there. As with anyone else, if you don't like the district you must attend either move or pay tuition. " May 17, 15 6:59 PM

Southampton Volunteer Ambulance Headquarters Now A 'Safe Haven' Location
