East Hampton School District Denied New Trial In Sandpebble Lawsuit

The whole thing is disgraceful. Millions of dollars for education being spent on frivolous lawsuits and over-paid/over-staffed administrations. There really needs to be some kind of controls over school boards and the way our monies are spent on education. And no, I don't have a solution :( " Jan 4, 17 10:25 AM

Southampton Village's Tuscan House To Change Into Gastro Pub

Good luck. Could've picked a better name. Gastro? I immediately think of indigestion. And there's a Gastro Bar in NYC. Gourmand Pub? Gourmanderie?" Jan 4, 17 10:52 AM

East Hampton School District Denied New Trial In Sandpebble Lawsuit

Seems EHSD breached the contract-so they invited it. Did they think Sandpebble was just gonna say 'oh ok go ahead get another contractor'? Should've thought about the $3M consequences. Inept-costly-poor decision making." Jan 5, 17 8:48 AM

Olde Towne Summer House Listed For $35 Million; Salz Estate On Meadow Lane Sells For $14.5 Million

1990-nestled smack dab in the dunes between Road F & Road G. I trust the new owners were told prior to purchase that the oceanfront is a 24/7 drive on picnic beach. :/" Jul 12, 17 12:10 PM

Still No Decision On Picnic Area Lawsuit, As Beachgoers Park And Party As Usual

Caveat Emptor ... "let the buyer beware." A doctrine that often places on buyers the burden to reasonably examine property before purchase and take responsibility for its condition. Especially applicable to items that are not covered under a strict warranty.

The Araskogs bought 2150 Meadow Lane in in 11/2004 after selling a previous property landlocked in the village. They full and well knew the beach front of the property was included as part of the 24/7 drive on picnic area. Their first complaint about the "all day driving in front of their home" was filed with the village in 2/2005...3 months after the purchase, in the DEAD of winter, when not too many picnickers would've been picnicking from November to February.

Southampton School Officials Begin Process To Look Into New Administration Building

While I agree, it appears that they already have the money which has been specifically saved in a building reserve fund. No, they don't have to, or need to spend the whole $8M, the money's there, and the trailers could really use replacing. As previously suggested...
-use the existing parcel & footprint
-build a two-story brick replacement doubling the 5k to 10k
It won't be $8M.

Remaining 'building funds' could be used to purchase entrance metal detectors/xray scanners that might thwart weapons and/or drugs from being brought in?

Or as mentioned, $$$ used for student resources.

There was one facebook post about the meeting on 9/26.
School website had it 'featured' (but buried) on the main page.
Doesn't reach the general public...just parents...if they bother. " Oct 12, 17 11:28 AM

Their suitable solution was to purchase an $8m building. They sought input from the public. Whether it be anonymously posted here, or chimed into a not very well publicized public meeting, the people are speaking. Staff members lurk along these comments just like we do. The employees of the school district far from suffer any hardship. They are extremely well paid, receive a hefty health benefit, an over abundance of vacation & sick & personal days. They're there working for 6 and half hours a day. It's rather difficult to feel sorry for them.
Build conservatively. Give something back to the children, parents, and community to make up for the negative public opinion shared by what seems to be the majority. " Oct 13, 17 6:41 AM

Schools Warn Parents Of New E-Cigarettes That Are More Easily Concealed--But Still Unwelcome

Important issue. Needs to be addressed. Parents that are aware-should be more aware. Talk to your kids and their friends. Yes, maybe there are worse things they could be doing but we don't know the effects yet.

Also concerning is that if it's:
“against the law for anyone under the age of 21 and, if caught on school grounds, violates our school code of conduct.”, will the schools involve law enforcement, who will no doubt worsen the situation, facilitating the school-to-prison pipeline rather than curbing it? Let's not criminalize it. Let's help our youth. They need help not handcuffs.Maybe there could be a program offered ? An anonymous survey sent to students to get input/feedback? How many kids are we talking about? How can we help?" Oct 18, 17 9:27 AM

Seethruny...$120k top salary for Lance in that position. The rest was OT & bennies. After 30 years on the job...that's what he maxed to. New people start at less for the same job.

Parents React To Southampton High School Proposed Curriculum Changes

But Southampton DOES have a VERY extensive resources; they are just not used for OUR children. Way too much fat at he top. Cut back on the useless admin staff. Even the guidance counselors don't want to be called "guidance" counselors anymore, just 'counselors'. If kids need extra help, the school should be providing it...after school and in a small groups, not the babysitting homework club classroom." Jan 25, 18 1:09 PM
