$43 Million Tear-Down Approved In Sagaponack

Not sure what the griping here is all about. This guy owns the house, he's going to knock it down and build another one,FARTHER FROM THE BEACH. It's not like he needs a varience or is clearing virgin land. What's the problem with that? Seems like a lot of class envy here that I just don't understand.It's large properties like this that keep our tax rates incredibly low. Compare our taxes to some UTI (up the Island) school districts! 10k for Center Moriches for example. No expensive properties = higher school taxes." Apr 28, 11 6:12 AM

Part time residents pay a large amount in property taxes and use a small amount of services, a good deal for the full time residents, dont'cha think? The lumber used for construction is, for the most part FARMED, not cut from virgin forest>" Apr 29, 11 6:31 AM

Jeez, don't inject FACTS into the debate, the Demokratz and rest of the lunatic fringe will lose what's left of their minds." Apr 29, 11 5:32 PM

$43 Million Tear-Down Approved In Sagaponack

Z Man: In our unique LOCAL economy , where a majority of us do work of some sort for the wealthy second homeowners, trickle down economics works! You live in the Southampton school district, so do I, our school taxes are low compared to the neighboring towns, eg. Tuckahoe or Hampton Bays. Here's why, the mega rich with their large estates and expensive homes pay out the nose and the rest of us reap the benefits! More trickle down at work! Don't begrudge the most successful among us, perhaps draw some inspiration and realize the American dream is within reach right in our own backyard!" May 3, 11 6:41 AM

It all depen on what quality of work you do. If you work on high end properties, this is a Godsend, if you work on subdivisions , not so much." May 3, 11 5:14 PM

Head Start May Face Federal Budget Cuts Next Year

Not immigration, no problem there, the issue is ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, big difference. Not commenting on the kids of ilegals using head start, just making sure Phil is aware that there are some here ILLEGALLY. Carry on." May 6, 11 5:12 PM

Westhampton Beach Suspends Village Highway Department Employee For Tardiness

And right there, ladies and gentlemen is the problem with public service unions. "Counciling" about being late for work?! In the real world if you're late too many times you're fired, period, end of sentence. Public service unions should be eliminated, after all it's OUR MONEY!" May 14, 11 9:01 AM

Southampton Town Board To Consider Most Expensive CPF Purchase In History

The land should be preserved for farming, and the Town purchasing development rights ensures that. We need to preserve as much open space as possible, if anyone prefers development, strip malls and big box stores, move back to wherever the hell you came from. " May 24, 11 6:19 AM

Altschuler Declares "Rematch" With Bishop

Run Andy Run, you have my vote. Randy has actually worked in the real world and built a very successful company. Compare that to Tim Bishop. Has he ever held a job in the real world? Provost of Southampton College, not a real world job, professional politician,not a real world job.What did he do for a living before that?
As to Randy's outsourcing jobs: Good for him, the tax burden on corporations, backed by the Demokratz and their loyal foot soldier Bishop, are among the highest in the industrialized world. Autschuler isn't a perfect candidate, but it's time to have a representitive that represents our values of fiscal conservatism and a pro- business climate." May 28, 11 7:15 AM

Southampton Village Hires Specialized EMT For Bidens' Visit

How many folks here make a living, a good living, by servicing the properties of the wealthy residents? How many jobs are provided in the trades? How about restaurants? How much tax revenue do they pump into the Town coffers, without utilizing as many services as year round residents,eg. schools? May the richget richer and continue to choose to live in our beautiful Town!" May 31, 11 6:22 AM

Cupsogue Beach Remains Closed Even Though Sharks Are Gone

Basking sharks are common this time of year. They're plankton eaters and harmless to humans.They have been seen close to the beach in the past, good fun to watch our summer "visitors" when they see them for the first time!" Jun 1, 11 6:17 AM

Bishop Explains Vote Against Debt Ceiling Increase

If he votes not to raise the debt limit when it really counts, I will vote for him, if not, no way!" Jun 1, 11 6:15 PM

Get the government off the backs of business by lowering corporate tax rates, end Obamacare which will force layoffs due to increased medical insurance costs, for starters. Crack down on the illegals in our country and deport them every time they surface in the system, be it at the hospital, schools or any police interaction, less illegals = more jobs for Americans.
Lower the tax rates for small businesses, less money confiscated by the government allows mor new hires." Jun 2, 11 6:11 AM

Hey Phil, an honest day's work is not being subserviant, you should try it someitim, it would do you a world of good. As for the local folks not being able to get a job, I call B S on you for that comment. Check out the Press, plenty of jobs there, the illegals all seem to have a job or two, or three! No excuse for not having a job here if you want to work, especially "in season". We live in great times in a great place, all it takes is some effort and some self reliance. Get off yer azz and take your piece of the pie, it's right in front of your face!" Jun 2, 11 6:19 AM

Find a service that the second home owners need and provide it. Work your azz off, do your job well, work your azz off, return every call from potential clients, work your azz off, do the right thing for your clients and finally , work your azz off! There's a recipe for success." Jun 3, 11 6:16 AM

49 years old Z man, owner of a fine gardening business, own my home and other property, it's a good life and provides a good living with the winter off to travel. All this was made possible by learning the business while working for another company, then going out and making it happen. 15 years in business and , thenk God, in the middle of our biggest season yet! It's not easy, but it's possible, there's plenty of work for a quality minded company. If this is a crappy economy, I can't wait until it gets better." Jun 6, 11 7:10 PM

Phil said local folks can't buy a house, get a job or get a college education, that is BS! My point Z man is that it's possible to do all these things by providing services to our wealthy second home owners or peripherally to those who do. How many delis are now owned by Latino families and serve that segment of the population? Amazing how some new immigrants are doing well. How about the Chinese restaurant in North Sea, those folks are running a successful business.While some here seem to look down on those who work with their hands, those of us who do are happy that the rich have chosen to live here and provide us with the opportunity to make a good living.It all hinges on working your azz off and providing a quality service and a quality product. " Jun 7, 11 6:32 AM

HMMM, the Demokratz forcing the banks to give mortgages to home buyers who had no chance of paying it back is a start.
Not all our wealthy second home owners made their initial fortunes in the markets or banking. Some of them started a small business and parlayed it into a multi national. Some invented a product and ran with it. See Z, the rich are not evil , and none of htem would be where they are today without a lot of HARD WORK, the basis of success." Jun 9, 11 7:10 PM

I have berated no one Z Man, just pointed out that the statement by Phil that no one here can buy a house, get a job or a college education is BS. Providing a first person account does not belittle or berate anyone, if so construed, my apologies to those sensitive souls who were offended. Blaming those who are successful, and bythat I mean the truly wealthy, for the ills of society is misguided, in my opinion. In the big picture, we are each responsible for our own financial situation. Those who TRULY unable to work are of course exempt from this and should receive a helping hand, after all, we are the most generous nation on earth." Jun 10, 11 6:22 AM

Former Southampton Town Employee Files Complaint Claiming She Was Wrongfully Terminated

Sounds like a waste of money in the first place. Sorry, your job has been deemed unneccessary, out you go!" Jun 17, 11 12:12 PM

Affirmitive action is nothing more than legal institutionalized discrimination. How in the world can that be justified? Before the leftists and liberal bleeding hearts start in with the old mantra of "it's making up for past discrimination". Think about this, how does discriminating against someone or favoring someone solely on the basis of race or gender do any good? Martin Luther King had it right when he spoke of the day when a man will be judged not by the color of his skin but on the content of his character. When it comes to hiring , the most qualified applicant gets the job, period." Jun 17, 11 4:15 PM

There are a lot of white people in this country whose ancestors came here AFTER SLAVERY WAS ABOLISHED Phil. Your argument, excuse me, leftist talking point, doesn't hold water. Are you saying tha Martin Luther King had it wrong? That takes a set of brass ballz and an incredible ego!" Jun 18, 11 7:45 AM

How about letting the most quaified applicant get the job, regardless or race or gender. THA is equality!" Jun 18, 11 4:06 PM

Phil: You are a bigotted little racist weasel! Your Stance screams that minorities can't compete on an equal footing with non-minorities. That's a disgusting bit of blatant racism. You still haven't responded to my pointing out that you have the ballz to go 180 degrees against Martin Luther King Jr.'s idea of a man being judged not by the color of his skin but by the content of his character. " Jun 19, 11 12:02 PM

Read King's "I have a dream" speech Phil, it shows that all the father of the civil rights movement wated was equal opportunities for his race, you racist little weasel." Jun 20, 11 6:34 AM

Affirmitive Action is nothing but legally sanctioned discrimination and as such does damage to those purportedly helped by it's implimentation. It enforces stereotypes. We have a 1/2 black president with a Muslim father and was raised by a single mother. If He could overcome this situation, we truly have become a post racial nation." Jun 23, 11 3:27 PM

Upcoming Changes For Southampton Town Leaf Program

Hope the bags are free. It's bad enough to pay for roads in pizz poor condition, drains that don't drain and leaf pickup that is spotty at best, don't add another cost to the scam that we already have." Jun 24, 11 4:36 PM

Personally I deal with my own leaves, but there are friends and neighbors who must rely on the Town to remove them My road has been in need of paving since the water main was installed 5 years ago, it's amazing that the road in fron ot Masterson's house is PERFECT, you can shoot pool on it! And it's less than 1/4 mile away from me, HMMMMMM." Jun 25, 11 8:30 AM

An example of compensatory discrimination is the NYC firefighter exam. White males are graded on their performance in both the physical and written tests. Minorities are given the same tests but receive "points" on the tests simply for not being a white male! The test discriminates against white males. No justice no peace!" Jun 26, 11 2:57 PM

Show my quote that allegedly says I believe blacks aren't as smart as whites, you racist little weasel! You are the one who believes minorities can't make it on their own merits. F'in pathetic liberal blather." Jun 27, 11 7:52 PM
