Developer pitches casino in Calverton industrial park

Logistically, Calverton would probably be the best site. Space is already wide open, Expressway access would be a near non-issue, and the only thing I can think of to make it sweeter would be a spur, or something similar to the Kennedy Airport Shuttle. The tracks run right past the runway, north of Mill Rd. on the Yaphank Line.
The Calverton site could mean increased traffic on River Rd., or Edwards Ave. if there are those looking for a "shortcut", but traffic could be kept on 25 if people just follow directions.
Shuttling eastbound traffic down 25 via Wm. Floyd would probably be the most viable option. Of course, then there would be the issue of ferry traffic. Much more central for the Calverton location, than Bellport.
We really need Gabreski for 21st century tech, and office space. It would be a much more constructive use, but as always, I may be mistaken." Jun 17, 10 12:35 PM

Logistically poor. Especially for ferry traffic from Port Jeff, and Orient." Jun 17, 10 12:40 PM

I agree. There are hundreds of acres that are sitting idle, generating very little revenue by comparison. I'd probably even apply for a job in IT with them." Jun 17, 10 12:46 PM

Brooklyn man drowns, friend still missing at Cupsogue Beach County Park in Westhampton

A: Respect your Mother. This planet has the power to give you life, as well as take it away.

In the days of Rome, there was what was called the right of "pater familias". In some extreme cases, albeit rarely, a father had the right to kill a family member. It (that extreme right) however, was done away with by law. Just think of it as a bit of "role reversal" when it comes to the planet." Jun 17, 10 1:15 PM

Town Board hears from 'Tuckahoe Main Street' developer

Y'know, we're all dead set against the same issue. Why nitpick, and resort to polemics?

Personal vendetta will achieve nothing, save making one sound like they are on a rant. Though I do admit to using the CAPS key for emphasis, I don't use it to "yell" with a keyboard.

We're all on the same train, so let's get to the destination, and put a STOP to this potential disaster." Jun 17, 10 1:24 PM

Four rescued after seaplane accident in Little Peconic Bay

Y'know, I think I I left that cool million for a down payment in my offshore account.

Call me with your avaristic dreams, I may be interested in that ostentatious monument to greed, and excess.

Sorry, couldn't resist the oppurtunity..." Jun 17, 10 7:01 PM

Lesson #1: Reference your tide charts. Low tide was just before noon. Great for clamming. Landing a seaplane in the bay, not so much." Jun 17, 10 7:12 PM

No disagreement with you there." Jun 17, 10 7:20 PM

Lady Gaga might be mulling a move to the East End

I agree. Who gives a d**n?

Remind me to write her a nice welcome note..." Jun 17, 10 7:27 PM

Lady Gaga might be mulling a move to the East End

It still was 30 years ago, now, I think not so much." Jun 17, 10 8:10 PM

Calabro casino talks progress

You know what would be nice?

A real amusement park. One with roller coasters, merry-go-rounds, paddle boats, funnel cake, potatoe fries, well, you get the picture.

Not enough profit in something nice like that, I suppose..." Jun 17, 10 8:17 PM

Fellingham's named one of America's best bars by Esquire magazine

They serve Rolling Rock. Other than the Clam Bar in Napeague, you'd be hard pressed to order one elsewhere.

Congratulations!!" Jun 17, 10 8:31 PM

Bike Traffic Skills 101

And, since so many have missed this simple fact, bicycles are to travel WITH traffic, not against it.

I so often see bicycles on the wrong side of the road, and even almost had a head on with one in a Kenworth truck.

Thanks for holding the classes!!!!

I hope many will take advantage of what you have to offer." Jun 17, 10 8:37 PM

Water Mill residents worry about development planned for intersection

Fancy this, a proposed grocery store in Tuckahoe, AND Water Mill.

What's next, a grocery for Sagaponack too?

Leave nothing unexploited, and no postage stamp worth of land over, or undeveloped, right?" Jun 17, 10 8:47 PM

No "short sale" on this one.

That invented investment method of eliminating the fact someone has to lose won't work here!" Jun 17, 10 9:05 PM

Four rescued after seaplane accident in Little Peconic Bay

Point well taken.

Still, the tide was unusually low, and it hadn't even come up 7 inches by that point in the day. But, you're right, someone should have been congratulatory sooner.

Cutting up foolishness is hard to resist, as is well evident." Jun 17, 10 10:15 PM

DWI charge in Sagaponack accident

It's not about socialism, it's about disparity, and greed run rampant. It's about working your a** off, and having little, or nothing to show for it. It's about a fiscal system so out of control, it took the U.S Treasury's savings account to bail it out.
I highly recommend "The Last Days of Lehman Brothers", if you haven't seen it already. James Cromwell was quite brilliant.
You want to know why people are upset? Stop being "brainwashed by the Benjamins" long enough to take your capitalist head out of the sand.
You may notice we have a serious problem when it comes to fiscal compensation, and gross overcompensation at that in too many cases. Money is what makes a man act funny, and that's the truth.
It's a discussion here, and if you don't go off topic here, where else will you? I believe in a sense of decorum as much as anyone else, but if it ain't said, ain't nobody said so about it.
This is a community discussion, and an outlet as well. People are tired, people are poor, and people are sick and tired of being made pooree by people who aren't even really their neighbors. If they can't talk about it here, where else is there a forum to do so?" Jun 17, 10 10:39 PM

Driver in fatal motorcycle accident jailed on felony manslaughter charge

Sometimes, people just take things too far, thinking they know all there is on the subject, or they at least act like they do.. The First Amendment grants freedom of speech, and we all do freely use it. And, some people do abuse it at that. People think, and act rashly at times, it's the nature of the beast. I've been called a socialist, holier than thou, and probably other things on this comment board that I haven't read, or heard in public.
I'm more than reasonably sure that you don't take any of these comments personally, and you have my respect for participating on these boards. There's no way it doesn't hurt, and time may not even be able to fully relieve the pain your family must now endure.
From what I have read, you are a man of solid reservations, and respect. I don't feel you have lashed out in anger, or slung any type of insult. You have every right to be angry, and your prose is intelligent, thought out, and spoken from your heart.
You have my deepest condolences, and I hope that what you have to say is not only read by everyone who participates here, but it is understood that no matter how good a parent you are, you can't be there every second. You can only impart your wisdom to children, and hope and pray they make good decisions.
For anyone to simply assume you are a bad parent, because they actually think they could have prevented this, is simply unfounded, and just plain wrong. SirHampton DID NOT simply comment on the story, he speculated what he would do if he was her father. If he was you.
I'll probably catch some heat for this, but as I said, that's just plain wrong." Jun 17, 10 11:48 PM

Motz appeals eight-year prison sentence

Gee, 8 years in a white collar country club of a prison.

Nah, he deserves more than that, and I'd say he benefited qutie nicely to afford a home in Quogue.

I would humbly request he take his medecine, and quit his whining. Stop wasting the court's time, and more taxpayer money. You took enough from many of them as it stands. He betrayed the public trust, and abused his position. Eight years is LIGHT for such a heinous manner of action." Jun 18, 10 8:04 PM

Police: Westhampton Beach Village Trustee Joan Levan trespassed on former candidate's property

A little too much LSD at Berkeley back in the day?

What person in their right mind would even attempt something like this?

Re-election in the future? DOUBTFUL..." Jun 18, 10 8:11 PM
