Great white shark confiscated by federal agents at Star Island Shark Tournament

I had mako once, I guess it was ok. But with the talk of mercury and such in other types of shark, I would have to think twice before I ate some these days. These other sharks, thresher and blue, were donated to soup kitchens. Has anyone ever tried blue shark or thresher? I haven't, the captain always threw the blue sharks back. I never caught a thresher.
If your going to have these competitions, figure out a way to let these guys "catch and release" and still win. If they want to eat or sell it, fine. If they want to stuff it and hang it over their bed, fine. But give them the choice of letting it go and winning the money. Just an idea. " Jun 28, 10 4:49 PM

Fisherman bitten by shark on Saturday

I just don't think I would bring a live shark on the boat. Is this common? I guess they REALLY needed that hook back." Jul 5, 10 6:22 PM

Southampton Town PBA approves contract; Town Board could ratify deal on July 1

I think this contract is slightly less than what EH police recently agreed to. The towns of Southold and Shelter Island both went to binding arbitration with thier forces and lost, giving the cops somewhere around 4% a year. Southampton did ok. I think the police dept. did ok too." Jul 5, 10 6:36 PM

7-Eleven quietly moving into Montauk

Sagaponack and town still wrestling to rein in crowds at popular beach gathering

If the crowd is indeed around 1,000, I think a permit is appropriate. Instead of a huge permit fee there should be a bond in place. Something that says if you don't clean up after the party, you loose the money. If the parking rules are broken, then the car gets ticketed. Sounds like you need some porta-potties too."

Governor Paterson vetoes bill to rename Westhampton preserve after Edwin 'Buzz' Schwenk

I'm withe EastEndHomie. Why can't the DEC get off its high horse? Did they have a poor relatinship with Buzz? Perhaps he did'nt give them the due repect they feel they require. Things need to change in that office as well.
As for the Guv.. He has got to be the lamest duck in history." Jul 23, 10 5:40 PM

In drowning aftermath, residents push for better beach protection

I feel very sorry for the family and friends of Ms. Sgaglione. Having been caught in a rip tide myself it is difficult to remain calm and remember what to do. Our community should remain proud of the lifeguards that protect us. Their level of professionalism and dedication is recognized not only on the eastern seaboard but nationwide. The more we as swimmers understand what is going on in the water the safer we will be. Thanks to these lifeguards for continuing to inform the public of danger. May you teach us for ever."

Suspended Southampton Village Police sergeant will retire

I think the village could use this to downsize the force without jeoperdising public safety. Public services are being scaled back everywhere. Retire, don't re-hire.
PBR? I hear cop stories all the time. I bet you have some good ones. Somebody really pissed you off." Aug 26, 10 11:32 AM

Controversial Montauk 7-Eleven to open on Wednesday

Maybe it is time for Montauk to be a town all by itself. In many ways it is sort of seen like that. " Aug 29, 10 5:59 PM

East Hampton Town targets taxis

Maybe places like Talkhouse should support a drunk bus. But when does thier responsibility for people who drink too much begin and end. I know they are held accountable to some extent but the decision to drink and then drive is not made by the bar.
I have not seen the double parking in action but I can imagine. I don't think it is a matter of people merely getting dropped off and the cab moving on to wait for thier riders down the road. It's the town cars and limos waiting directly outside, double parked and running (so as to keep the client cool when they come out) for an hour or more. They need a ticket.
Please don't drink and drive. It's dangerous. " Sep 13, 10 6:02 PM

Kabot Says District Attorney Should Be Ashamed

Jury Verdict In Kabot Case: Not Guilty Of DWI

Ok. That took at least a year too long. But considering the change of venue and all the additional drama, who's surpised. Having watched the video, I would guess she had more than two glasses of wine. Maybe I drink too much.
My undrstanding is had she taken the brearalyzer, out there on the street, it would not have been admissible evidence. It is the machine they use at the station house that is brought into court as evidence. " Feb 12, 11 2:11 PM

Glass Mound Proves A Growing Challenge

I saw it used in a catch basin project one time, they would have otherwise used sand in this instance. I'm curious of what Mr King and the people involved in those town projects feel about using it in drainage projects. Will it be effective and for how long?
Maybe you can use it in "base coat" road projects but not in a repaveing or "top coat". Even then you have to get the glass to the asphalt plant. You could loose some of it by mixing it in recycled concrete I guess.
Is casting it out to sea completely out of the question?" Mar 5, 11 7:41 PM
