Empire and Alliance resume attacks as hospitals remain without contract

You are the one who needs to be educated. Stop listening to the Liberal media. Immigration policy is at fault for this country's problems. Not just the millions of illegals whose children flood our education system and health care system, but the quality of the immigrants who are legally has declined over the past 40 years. Immigrants used to have valuable trades when they came to this country. Now most have no skills. " Oct 25, 09 11:32 AM

Government exists only to redistribute wealth. Why doesn't your local gov't just raise the taxes on all those liberal hollywoof types that have moved to the Hamptons and ruined the area. I'm sure they won't mind, after all, they want the rest of us to pay." Oct 25, 09 11:37 AM

The majority of americans are fed up with liberal entitlement mongers like you. The next election cycle will show just how fed up the majority of amercians are over this socialistic health care reform being pushed down our throats. " Oct 25, 09 11:43 AM

It is easy to blame insurance companies because the White House does and the liberal media falls in line with White House policies. Insurnace companies are to balme, as well as hospitals, doctors. lawyers (malpractive insurance). Health care reform should take smaller stesp in fixing these problems before socializing the entire system." Oct 25, 09 11:46 AM

Great liberals like FDR, JFK, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter have led us down the path to entitlements. The New Deal was a Raw Deal. All the social service entitelements during the JFK.Johnson era furthered our permanent decline. " Oct 25, 09 11:49 AM

What happens if other insureres won't give the Alliance Group what they want? The only way to give the Aliance Group what they want is to raise premiums. Then you will all balme the insurance companies again. The costs of health insurance will not be truly addressed until hospitals and doctors have their rates fixed by the gov't. Obama belives that wall street companies and banks should have their salaries dictated by the gov't, what is wrong with doing the same to what will become a required service under health care reform."

Empire is paying the going rate for that procedure. If Alliance Hospital and doctors refuse to accept that rate, then the patient owes them the difference between the Emire reimbursement and billing rate by hospital/doctor. Blame you hospital and doctors for being too greedy. Empire dpesn't arbitrarily set rates for medical procedures, they have their own clinicins. Every other hospital/doctor group in the country acepts Empire rates. Why not the East End of Long Island? Maybe the doctors feel thay would not be able to attend as many polo matches or drive the fanciest cars." Oct 25, 09 12:07 PM

Southampton Town candidate debate attracts nearly 200 people

As bad as town gov't currently is,the voters can not afford a democratic party leadership. The democratic paty has no record of ever lowering taxes. All you will get will be higher taxes and entitlements. " Oct 25, 09 12:14 PM

Unlike your family Bob, I have worked for vereything I have, including housing. If you can't afford housing, then move to an area where you can. Hampton Bays has always been the cheaper place to live compared to areas east of the canal. How about Wyandanch?" Oct 25, 09 12:18 PM

Southampton Town Board incumbent Sally Pope (D,WF)

Anyone endorsed by the Working Families Party should be voted out. This organization is as ethical as ACORN. They were involved in a voter registration fraud in Upsate NY recently where they fraudulently signed absentee ballots for people who were alive and dead. That is what the dmocratic party has come to stand for, Chicago style policis where farudelent votes in large numbers are used to ensure their liberal views are imposed on everyone."

Fishermen hope to prove federal data is wrong

So you want to go out and fudge the historic figures in your favor? Does this mean that all the other parties get to also fudge their figures? Then you will wind uop with the same share you had berfore. Suck it up and get a real job. The rules are the rules!" Oct 31, 09 12:08 PM

Southampton Town may see an end to 'anoint and appoint' policy

Proposal III is toothless and a fell good measure. Massachusetts di the same thing when Kerry was running for President. Lawmakers did not want the republican governor to put a republican in John Kerry's vacant senatorial seat if Kerry had won the presidency. So they passed a smiliar law to propositionm III. Now that Senator Kennedy has died, the same democartic legislature has overturned thier own law and installed a replacement democartic senator in Kenndy;'s vacant senate seat without waithing 90 days to hold a special election. So you see, don't trust you politicians. If they want this law now there is a shady reason for it, just as there will be when they reverse themselves later on should the need require."

Throne-Holst defeats Kabot; Nuzzi and Malone beat Pope and Fleming

Too bad the voters were in a lose/lose situation. As bad as Kabot was, you will all find out how much worse Throne-Holst will be. God help the true Southamptonites because only the Hollywood type bleeding heart liberals who have slowly taken over the town will benefit and all the taxpayers will suffer. BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR!" Nov 3, 09 11:17 PM

Throne-Holst unseats Kabot as Southampton Town supervisor; Republicans maintain board majority

Thank god the republicans kept control of the Town Board. This will keep the newly elected Town Suoervisor from going off on the usual liberal tax and spend policies." Nov 4, 09 6:26 PM

Will this be another Al Farnkin episode by the democrats. That 400 vote lead will quickly disapear and somehow Pope will be determined the winner by a democartic judge. Politics as usual!" Nov 4, 09 6:32 PM

Fishing license injunction extended again; attorney general refuses to take case

Saltwater fishing has always been free and Eastenders take it as a god given right. It's a shame that the State decided to place fees on everything there is. How about lowering the amount of entitlements, then you wouldn't have to raise taxes and fees!" Nov 4, 09 6:54 PM

Agencies launch recycling program at Shinnecock commercial dock

Exactly why is this news?" Nov 19, 09 8:59 PM

Southampton Town Board adopts dark skies legislation

Another example of Big Brother getting involved where they have no business. A homeowner should be able to do what they want with their property. Is the entire town to be treated like one big homeowners association? There are real problems in town that need attention. Stop wasting taxpayer time on these meaningless and unenforceable laws." Dec 11, 09 7:13 PM

As for town employees paying a share of their health benefits, these items should ne negotiated in next contract." Dec 11, 09 7:14 PM

Sounds like politics as usual to me." Dec 11, 09 7:16 PM

Southampton supervisor argues for speedier mortgage tax payments

If these clowns could account for all the milions of missing taxpayer money, they wouldn't be asking for mortgage tax earlier. You dug your hole, now ly in it!" Dec 11, 09 7:18 PM

Union protests construction of private hangar at Gabreski Airport

As a union member and local president, never feel sorry for the union workers. Unions have overpriced themselves. A free market system is the only way to ensure the public is getting the best quality at the lowest cost. When will the unions wake up and concede they are pricing their workers out of the markets?" Dec 11, 09 7:21 PM

Bishop asks Paterson for disaster area designation

Why do you keep building on the beaches? Don't these storms happen every year at this time? Why should the state taxpayers be responsible for local town officials poor decisions in letting the wealthy people build on the beaches. Pay for it yourselves, you are the cause of the destruction." Dec 11, 09 7:24 PM

Money wasted that could have been used to lower taxes." Dec 11, 09 7:31 PM

Montauk fishermen cited for violations

Stop your whining and just obey the rules!" Dec 11, 09 7:37 PM

Around Town Hall: Southampton Town details hamlet boundaries in new map

Why the fees for paying on-line transfer or by credit card? Why would I, as a taxpayer, want to pay my taxes plus a fee for the town's convenience. By law, the town should still have to mail out tax bills. I recommend that everyone pay by check by mail unless the town takes away those ridiculous fees. Since the taxpayer will be saving the town money by paying on-line and by credit card, the town should give a discount rather than impose fees." Dec 19, 09 9:58 PM

Theresa--- Isn't the town saving money by letting the taxpayer pay their taxes by credit card? Sure there is a fee for crdeit cards, but the savings realized by the town in not mailing out tax bills and having to manually process them should make it a wash. Just another example of a greedy town government." Dec 19, 09 10:01 PM

Shinnecock Indian Nation wins preliminary federal recognition

If the courts are consistent, the only place the casino can be located is on Shinnecock owned land. All of you people who are in favor of the Shinnecocks getting a casino should be happy that the casino will be in your back yard, making Montauk Highway a bottleneck just like watermill is in the summertime. Good luck with that!" Dec 19, 09 10:04 PM

Southampton Village moves forward with affordable housing project

Will these be units for illegal immigrants?" Dec 19, 09 10:06 PM

Shinnecock Inlet dredging should be completed by January

Another waste of taxpayer money. I'm sure that $6 million could have been used to maybe feed the poor. $6 million of taxpayer money spent on a handful of commercial fisherman who can't pilot their boats. Maybe they should move their boats into Moriches bay." Dec 30, 09 9:36 PM
