Hamptonite, Lefty46 and others, you must not have had to deal with Dr. Boyes. He actually has a set of balls, unlike Southampton's previous Super, who was looking for a pair. I doubt that Dr. Boyes is influenced by disgrunted, obnoxious parents either. From what I have witnessed, he is actually making a considered opinion with regard to an employee. He could have set Mrs. Richard loose (there are probably some on the Board of Education who wished he would), but instead he is opting to give her another year to prove herself. It takes more than being greeted by a smile and a hug to merit being paid nearly $130,000.00 a year by the taxpayers to corral a bunch of kids and over paid and under worked teachers, you need a true administrator -- someone who is more than up to the task of handling the day to day grind of being responsive to the students, parents, teachers and community and planning for the future--I think that Mrs.Richard is fortunate if she is given another year to improve and prove herself.

Get darker before it gets lighter -- and on whose watch! Ms. Kabot may not have been the Superviser all the time, but she was in office. I don't know how that woman can get up in the morning and look at herself in the mirror. This looks like it is only going to get worse -- we will be as bad off as East Hampton Town before we know it.

INS, I hope your comment is not an endorsement of the great job our Town Supervisor is doing. I do agree, however, that there is something wacky about the assessment numbers and corresponding tax liabilty. " May 11, 09 12:32 AM
Are we not suprised??? Let's face it, the proprietors of La Hacienda are not USA born Americans (although their children probably are). They have fed off our system for many years without a problem: why shoud they have to pay sales and withholding tax now? It saddens me as I hoped that this particular establishment was different, but obviously not. " Jul 10, 09 12:09 AM
OMG. How much worse is this going to get?? I thought that only the Federal government under Obamba was rapping us and now I have to read this!!!" Jul 10, 09 12:28 AM
I hope that whatever deal Tim worked out included employment for him after the November election. " Mar 19, 10 4:27 PM
Peoplefirst, you are wrong. My family's income was less than $250,000 in 2009 (in fact it was just about the same as in 2008) and we paid more (nearly $3,000 more) to the Federal government than in 2008. Remarkably, the taxes paid to NYS were about the same for both years, but I don't believe that will hold true for this year. " Apr 27, 10 10:40 AM
Fine and Mondini let everyone down. Their wallets will probably be fuller for this. Southampton should be happy to be rid of them. Don't blame the School Board, they were used.

So sorry Deb for your loss. Craig never had a bad word for anyone. Such a good man. We should all be like him. Thoughts and prayers with you and your boys. Cancer is an ugly thing. " Jan 30, 11 1:20 AM

Cars and trucks have been clogging western Southampton Village streets for the past 3 plus hours and the last update from 27East is from over 2 hours ago?
