Fallen soldier's remains arrive on the East End

Our soldiers, sons and daughters die every day.....and we grieve.
Driving east this afternoon prior to the arrival of Lt. Theinert I saw the Flag and the volunteer firemen. I thought of the movie "Taking Chance" yet I knew the escorts would be bringing Joseph home.
My heart breaks for your ultimate sacrifice.....and we grieve. " Jun 9, 10 9:17 PM

Four rescued after seaplane accident in Little Peconic Bay

I was playing tennis this morning (9am-10:30am). A sea plane flew over the courts (very low, tree top low, scary low) from the east heading to the bay (2 minutes away). At the time I thought, "what the heck". Now I find out it crashed. " Jun 17, 10 6:07 PM

Kabot DWI hearing kicks off, will resume Tuesday

I hope those of you with personal and or political vendettas against Kabot never serve on her jury or any jury for that matter. What happened to "innocent until proven guilty"? Goldenrod is correct that the advice given by the lawyer who wrote the article was...Do Not take the breathalyzer test. For those wanna be lawyers with the mean & hateful comments may I suggest you study DUI law before you post. If you actually saw Kabot at a bar and want to be a witness, contact the prosecution lawyers. If you did not see Kabot at the bar, STOP feeding the rumor mill.

As to a police cover-up, every industry, bottom up has their share of scum employees. Hopefully the legal system works and the scum ends up where it belongs. " Jul 10, 10 9:03 PM

Rogers Memorial Library budget passes

202 votes is a pathetic turnout.
There should be one day to vote for all Town budgets affecting property taxes (school, fire dept, library) with ample public notice of the date which excludes the legal notices in the SHP. " Aug 23, 10 6:51 PM

Tuckahoe Superintendent Would Rent District-Owned Home Following $95,000 Renovations

If the house is vacant and is not going to be used for school expansion any time soon, sounds like a good idea to make the repairs, have an occupant and collect monthly rent. At the going rental rate of $2,ooo per month you could recoup the costs in 4 years." Dec 6, 10 5:53 PM

Census Shows Soaring Increase in Latino Population On East End

As if anyone is surprised by the census results. One has to be a moron if they haven't noticed the increase in the last 6-7 yrs. What % of the increase is here "illegally"? Can you say 80%?
Our town, county, state & federal elected officials refuse to control "illegal" immigration. The "illegal" immigrant knows this and continues to take advantage of the lack of enforcement. There are and will continue to be costs associated with the "illegal" immigrant until the elected officials get a pair of balls and enforce our immigration laws.
Until then, the local property tax payer will continue to provide the children of the "illegal" immigrant an education in SPANISH. " Apr 4, 11 12:01 PM

Town Changes Leaf Pick-Up Program Again

Monies are allocated for leaf pick up. If the Highway Dept cannot handle the job then put the job out for bid. In this economy, my bet is that someone is willing to do the job quickly and efficiently. How much will the voucher program cost? Who decided on age 77 for leaf pick up? How will this work? How many residents are 77 and older? This plan is ludicrous. Residents are tired of hearing "we are understaffed". We should be able to vote on this change! " Apr 6, 11 11:15 AM

Southampton Town Board Appoints Wilson As Police Chief

I hope the reason for hiring Wilson is the result of our current police staff not meeting the qualifications of the Position Description. I hope the Police Department as well as all other Town Departments have Succession Planning in place. This plan provides the employee with the requirements and qualifications for promotion. It is the job of management to oversee this process. Every employee wants and needs to know they can be promoted to the next level. I hope future promotions will come from within.

Southampton Town Will Need To Come Up With Millions To Meet Tax Cap Next Year

Time to focus on healthcare and pension costs for all town employees rather than decreasing services to those that foot the bill . " Jul 18, 11 6:32 PM

Noyac Road Project Won't Happen In 2011

Come on.......This project should have been completed already. Why is this once again being held up? The area is a death trap! At the very least put up speed signson both sides of the road with a speed of 15 miles an hour. Have a police car stationed on a side street. All ticket proceeds should go to funding this project.

Graboski Calls For Reducing Number Of Planning Board And Zoning Board Of Appeals Members


Ridiculous proposal to reduce the Boards. There is a bigger bang if you cut benefits to Town employees. Time to Increase staff in Code Enforcement too. Lots of violations written and no consequences. " Aug 19, 11 6:30 PM

Westhampton Beach Lifeguard Quits After Being Denied Permission To Respond To Fire Alarm


More to this story than we know. Too bad he quit. " Aug 24, 11 10:59 AM

Residents Challenge Day Camp Application

I thought the owner was/is required to install a sewage treatment facility just like the one at the Majors Path Condos. " Sep 15, 11 7:40 PM

Gregor, Town Board Battle Over New Leaf Pickup Program

No way this program will work. 60% of property owners do not live here in the winter. They rely on their landscaper to put leaves and brush on the curb. Most landscapers don't know the new rules. The other 40% don't necessarily get the SHP to read about the program. Sending Highway workers door to door with flyers regarding the new procedures was an interesting use of their time. This program has FAILURE written all over it. " Oct 19, 11 10:07 PM

Residents Turn Out To Protest North Sea Day Camp

Good article in the NY Post on Mr. Jacobs. Hope he doesn't think he can hydrofrack on this property too. " Oct 24, 11 9:48 AM

Gregor, Town Board Battle Over New Leaf Pickup Program

Let's get out of a bubble. Towns with property taxes 3 and 4 times higher than ours, pick up leaves weekly. We are use to leaf pick up 2x a year. Lets start a referendum to add $15 to our tax bill and continue with the current program. Burning leaves can be no more harmful than the smoke from fire places and wood burning stoves used from Oct to April." Oct 24, 11 9:57 AM

Southampton Town Leaf Pickup Program May Strain Waste Management Department

The brown bags won't biodegrade unless wet. None of the sites have water to wet them down. Someone needs to open the bags at the dump. This is an additional cost . What is the difference in air quality between burning leaves and/or using a fireplace or woodburning stove between Oct to April?. " Oct 24, 11 11:57 AM

UPDATE: Absentee Ballot Count Continues In East Hampton

We are a nation of instant communication.....ipads/iphones/email but we fall short in our ability to count absentee ballots in a timely manner. Absolutely insane. What a backwards process. What an embarrasment. The whole system needs an overhaul. " Nov 18, 11 6:20 PM
