Southampton High School seeks upgrades for planetarium, envisions opening to public

The planetarium is one of my most memorable experiences at SHS. Its a brilliant idea, go for it. Do they still have the Meade telescope to view the real ones? That was also alot of fun. The more you can inspire our future the better the future will be." Mar 15, 10 3:23 PM

County lawmakers look at possible sites for Shinnecock casinos

Calverton makes the most sense being near the expressway and perhaps a reverse flow of ferry traffick would bring some New England dollars down here for a change. " Mar 17, 10 6:51 AM

The tax revenue should be used to reduce our school portion of our tax bills in the county first before kicking it back up to the state." Mar 17, 10 6:52 AM

Developers present new plans for Tuckahoe hamlet center

How many local contractors will it employ?? We have many people in the town out of work and exceptionally well qualified. I think that a condition to approval should be a percentage of construction be awarded to contractors who live and work in the Town of Southampton. Think of the trickle down, first if they own homes thay are paying local taxes second just by living here they buy merchandise at local establishments. Keep some of that $35mm here!!!!! WHy should that money go out of Town???" Mar 24, 10 7:26 AM

Fairway Restaurant closed after 20 years

Horrible. Ed Wankel needs to be fired." Mar 28, 10 8:38 AM

Good news and now with depressed real estate prices we need to use CPF to make strategic aquisitions." Apr 4, 10 8:35 PM

Stony Brook University will announce drastic cuts to Stony Brook Southampton

Totally Sad. All that investment then to shut it down. What no reserve fund?? Stony Brook needs new a new management team. This little campus in Southampton could be so great if they just promoted it more. Just look at the Marine Science location. The campus should be chock full of marine science, environmental science students." Apr 7, 10 6:13 AM

IRS says Southampton Town comptroller owes $650,000 in back taxes

Tamara,
If your correct at the very least you should do is take a temporary leave of absence to handle the situation. Given that SH Town is climbing out of an accounting mess started long ago, your situation takes credability away from your office. Now one cant help but wonder if we have the right person for the job.

U.S. Census workers are still plugging away on the East End

We need an accurate count. On the east end we recieve such a little amount of federal aid as its based on the population numbers. Casual observation shows we have grown nd we need federal money to aid in our growth." Apr 18, 10 7:59 AM

Pilots charge that politics played a role in Levy's decision to add clause to leases at Gabreski Airport

I agree.. America was founded on competition and part of that in bidding are wages. Private contractors even if working on public projects shouldnt be bound by prevailing wage law. Its anti-competitive and adds costs to public projects that the taxpayers just cannot afford. The Unions are free to accept less and pay less as well, which is a much better option than having members out of work. Part of the reason of rthe recession is that everything cost to much and that goes to wages and pensions costs. We need reform." Apr 22, 10 6:58 AM

Oddone attorney files appeal

An appeal in this instance is a complete waste of taxpayer funds during a recessionary year. The department heads in charge of the defense attorney should rate their potential successful outcome against its cost. A cost cussess analsys. Sarita has nothing to lose with what seems like an unlimited amount of tax dollars behind her and everything to gain. She'll be known as the oddone defense lawyer and will leave public office and get a high paying job at a private litigation firm and we will stillbe paying for the tax bill. Call a spade a spade. Enough already. Case CLosed" Apr 27, 10 7:14 AM

Westhampton Beach Village tables disciplinary hearings again; former police officer blasts mayor, police chief

SOunds like Greenport all over again. The force should close up shop and let the town do it. For me it was over when the deputy mayor fired a 38 at a raccoon in his backyard. An unlicensed gun owner and no charges were filed. Anyone of us would have been locked up.
Our taxes are high as we have to many layers of government this seems lke a watse of money to those in WHB." May 8, 10 6:40 AM

More than $1.4 million coming to Southampton from gas companies in lawsuit settlement

I lIved in HB for a awhile and so did my parents. WHen were the wells polluted? Seems like those who drank the water should get the money!" May 8, 10 6:44 AM

Flood waters finally receding: Saga of unstable water table in East Quogue

There are ways to waterprrof and afte the flooding rains in 2006 I did the same thing, but I didnt know to have a floor drain. The purpose is not what you think the purpose was to releieve the pressure under the slab and let the water in so as to not crack the slab or floor. My slab cracked due tot he march 30 rains. Most of the walls held nicely but I am recoting them sealing a few cracks and adding a sump pump, below the slab this time. We learn from experience. " May 18, 10 6:33 AM

Justice Department probes Hamptons real estate business

Seems like there is more "restaint of trade" with MLS than the east end brokers. If your not an MLS broker in the system they dont want to do business with you and if you push them to get into the property they offer no commission. So whos's interest are they looking out for? Apparently when one makes an appointment on MLS they have aplace to log you in as the showing agent and if your not on MLS it presents a problem to them. That should be fixed." May 21, 10 6:49 AM

Southampton School Board suspends high school principal and assistant principal, who are then hired by East Hampton

The whole thing was handled horribly and shouldnt have clouded the end of the year. Sorry if Boyes was sour grapes but he should have thought about the kids first and let the year playout. After gradualtion he could have had a fit and it would have been over by the fall start. The whole thing is relly bad management form....." May 21, 10 2:38 PM

FAA to impose new regulations for helicopters

The entry point is North Sea around Bay View Oaks and Whalebone Landing, and Glen View and North Side Hills which is unacceptable. Many homes are going to be overflown when fewer homes would be impacted if they used an ocean route and flew in from Georgica Pond. The people of North Sea, Noyac and Sag Harbor are in the flight path. Contact Sentator Schumer and let him know that this is unacceptable to us." May 22, 10 1:43 PM

Westhampton Beach man receives GOP nod for assembly; Thiele gets Democratic endorsement

Fred's a good man and has spent time working with me on various issues. He always responds to my requests and provides good guidance. His experience and knowldge are very important now more than ever with whats going on with government ." May 23, 10 7:05 AM

FAA to impose new regulations for helicopters

Capnjb,
They hit you they fly over us on the way in. Glad you understand the problem and point out some valid issues. No of which would be present if they flew the Atlantic Route... This present route needs to be changed" May 23, 10 7:07 AM

The Atlantic route works fine as the air traffic have ways to fly around and through controlled airspace. The few people who live on Georgica Pond are citizens just like us and the route is entirely over the water and not theire houses like it is in North Sea. The other option is Barcelona Point. Della Femina wouldnt be bothered as he lives further east on the ocean. Regardless this has the fewest homes of any flight path which is what the ruling is supposed to be." May 25, 10 6:47 AM

Turkey Bridge et al. I have already elevated it up to thepowers that be and they are activey working on it. Apparently the route added takes the helo's east around Orient point then they turn in, however when I went down to the beach last night you could see them flying outbound over Noyac/North Sea heading home undeer the path as indicated in last Saturdays Newsday. The helo's need to go out over Georgica or barcelona Point where there are the fewest houses. Its fantastic that our federal represetatives were able to get a route so now that we have our foot in the door it needs to be tweaked. Keep complaing if it affects you." May 28, 10 6:47 AM

No route following here in North Sea. There were many many overflights and some very low of helicopters even one at 3:30 am Saturday that shook the house. The routing needs to be mandatory and over the Atlantic as you cant excpect them to follow the rules. Perhaps if the helo pilots fopund the ones who are the most trouble and had a conversation with them they wouldnt ave had restrictions in the first place" Jun 1, 10 6:25 AM
