Club members offer $1 million for Oddone bail; trial nears start

A million dollars? Are you kidding me? Wouldnt it be nice if the judge had the ability to seize these funds and forward them to the victims family? The defendant's supporters have shown that they clearly dont need the money. If they are willing to to offer it for this P.O.S. then they should have no problem seeing it go the people who need it, thanks to the actions of Mr. Oddone.

PS - As a caddy, I can honestly say that Mr. Oddone and these members of the Bridge have given a bad name to the caddies, and caddie programs of the East End, Please dont let this shameful act reflect on caddies, golfers, or other golf clubs in the area." Oct 1, 09 9:57 PM

Three-car crash closes Montauk Highway in Westhampton

You really love to hear yourself comment. Its nice how your reaction appears to be a cheap-shot at the webstie you love to spend so much time with.
How about some concern for those involved? like, "Wow, that is a really bad turn, heading into the sun. I hope everyone is ok. "
Many students take that route home everyday, in busses and cars, and I, for one, DO hope that everyone is ok." Mar 27, 10 12:18 PM

I do not need any explanations, I just found it interesting, to say the least, that anyone could see a picture of a three-car accident like this one and be more concerned with how quickly an article was written. If you were in one of those cars, would you rather read comments about the newspaper, or read about compassion for those involved?

Oddone Conviction Overturned By Highest Court, New Trial Possible In 2008 Killing

Every time I see this guys picture in the news, I get sick to my stomach. Let the Reister family have some peace. The only good thing to come from this Would be Oddone now getting the film sentence he deserves. It's disgusting that the courts cater to high power attorneys that are in bed with a murderer.

Shinnecock Tribe Member Angered Over Beach Parking Fees

I see 2 issues here. "Beach access". And "beach parking".
The article says nothing about her being denied access, at Coopers or elsewhere. She's being asked to follow the same guidelines as everyone else. It should be noted that the beachs parking lot is funded by property taxes of the residents that still pay a small fee for a parking sticker. NO ONE parks at the beach for free!

New State School Aid Mandates To Impact Local Districts

These teachers are a valuable part of our community. They spend a lot of time with our kids and help shape their futures. However, they cross the line when they approach parents in the halls of our schools and encourage the parents to opt-out. The opt-out movement is being pushed by the Union to fight Albany. Don't use our kids as leverage for your political agenda. " Apr 11, 15 8:56 PM

South Fork Parents Are Choosing To Opt Children Out Of State Exams This Week

My child took the test, and I couldn't be more proud of her. Yes, the system is obviously flawed, but the teachers union can fight this like adults, and not bully the children into fighting for them. The teachers are lobbying the parents (in the halls of the school) to opt out, and are telling the kids that the test isn't fair, because if kids don't do well, the teachers won't get their money. Yes, that's what they told the 3rd graders.
We have a great school, and great teachers, but this whole movement is sending a mixed message to the kids. The school is required to administer the test, but the teachers are telling us to skip out. Either give the test or not. Don't put the kids in the middle of the union's politics. " Apr 16, 15 8:30 PM

Search Continues For Suspects After Shooting Injures Two On Shinnecock Reservation

Was the memorial for the accident a year ago where a car crashed while speeding into the Res, killing most of the occupants? Way to pay tribute - by shooting each other. Disgraceful. " Jun 15, 15 7:42 PM

Hampton Bays Fire District Rejects Freedom Of Information Act Request

Wow! They must have had a lucrative Memorial Day/ 4th of July boot-collection. As if traffic wasn't bad enough through town, without this nonsense.
Last time I looked, the (volunteer) HBFD portion of my tax bill was about 50% more than the potion for the (paid) SHPD. I have never understood this, and now not sharing their intentions with the taxpayers is pretty shameful. " Jul 31, 15 8:41 PM

UPDATE: Armed Man Who Barricaded Himself Inside Hampton Bays Home Identified, Charged With Several Crimes

Shame on SHPD AND SH Press, why protect this guys privacy? This guy threatened to shoot innocent people, and you won't identify him? The community should not be in the dark, as we may interact with this guy as part of our daily lives. Not arrested? What happened to his weapon?" Feb 20, 16 8:09 AM

Did you read it? It never mentions him threatening himself.

Sag Harbor Man Receives Outpouring Of Support After Motocross Accident

Take it easy on Babyboo, and get off your high-horses. Sag Harbor may be a great community, but you're no different than those from Hampton Bays, Mastic, or wherever. We're all people. I think the idea of "gofundme" has been tainted by people setting them up when they aren't entirely necessary. I've seen "serial gofunders" who always seem to have a cause, and others who collect more than they need, and then fill their Facebook with new toys, trips, and nights out.
I don't know this family, but if your family has 2 incomes (yes, I'm making an assumption), and one of them is 136k, you are living well. Even in Sag Harbor. I wish them well, and a speedy recovery, but without making this personal, I agree with Babyboo" Apr 26, 16 7:42 PM

Shinnecock Tribal Member Fights For More Than Parking Ticket

Tesla Installs Charging Stations On County Road 39

I'm wondering if the charge is complimentary, or if you swipe your card for a fill-up. Free fill-ups is a great selling point. " May 30, 16 7:56 PM

East Quogue Village Green Designated Green Zone

Unless the Town charges this new equipment with a solar grid, it technically still runs on natural gas or even coal. Quieter, but is it really "green"?" Jun 22, 17 10:56 AM

East Hampton Village May Silence Gas-Powered Leaf Blowers

Unless they’re being charged by solar, wind, or hydro-electric, are they really “GREEN”? What’s “GREEN” about burning fossil fuels to charge giant batteries?" Nov 5, 17 6:44 AM
