First New Build On Captain’s Row In 75 Years Finds A Buyer

Not the Moylan sisters... their home was on Madison and not a "single story ranch". The tear-down was a 1-1/2 story classic cape. " Dec 3, 18 1:02 PM

Southampton Town Trustees Open Mecox Bay To Oyster Dredging

This is a good thing! Kudos to the trustees

I own 60 acres of nice mostly sandy bottom out in Hog Neck Bay (Make me an offer...really!!) and before I retired spent some time lobbying both the DEC and state legislature to allow shellfish harvest by hydraulic dredging without any luck.

In the right areas, for the most part, bottom without SAV ...Submerged Aquatic Vegetation, this method of harvest would be a boon to the industry allowing hard clams to be harvested at a low enough cost to create a sustainable market. Clams are more robust than either Oysters or Scallops and provide a backstop for aquacultural business when these last two crops fail.

The argument against was usually that hydraulic dredging was too disruptive of the benthic environment, so part of my standard argument was to invite my lobbying target to throw on some scuba gear and sit with me on my property during a good blow, say a Nor'easter, and watch what happens as the storm turned the bottom upside-down, "disturbed" in a fashion that would take me 100 years with a dredge of any kind.

How about I give you a towel to wash that egg off your face chief1 now that your Ripiblican (sic) [Although, maybe that's the way Trump spells it] champion Zeldin has weighed in on this? Maybe it's time for you to revive that grandfather of all American nativist parties the Know Nothings... I think you'd find yourself right at home." May 18, 19 10:28 PM
