Contractor Claims Southampton Councilman Locked Him In Office After Worker Broke Into Home

SH patch has heard the tape and it completely substantiates the contractor's story. Malone has blatantly abused his office and should resign immediately. It is time these anti- big government republicans be held accountable for their big government bullying. " Jan 10, 12 9:06 PM

He tried to take the guy hostage and then misuse his position to have him arrested! "Faults"? Are you Mr. Malone's mother?" Jan 11, 12 3:59 PM

I agree with an earlier poster - it is an absolute crime that these part-time, do-nothing, arrogant board members are being paid 67K a year. " Jan 11, 12 4:01 PM

Sag Harbor Considers Using Dogs To Deter Drugs At School

Bigfresh, does your hypocrisy know no bounds. You are constantly spewing right wing, anti-big-government nonsense on this blog, but, when the intrusion into civil liberties fits your myopic, far-right ideology you are quick to change your mind.

Drug sniffing dogs in school is extreme, unwarranted and an insanely stupid idea." Jan 17, 12 2:51 PM

Hey, capt'n, when I commented on the gun incident did I say we should put police in schools? Did I call for gun sniffing dogs and metal detectors?

There is no hypocrisy in what I've said. Your continued use of a Herman Cain avatar says all anyone would need to know about your inability to think outside of that little box you've put yourself in." Jan 18, 12 8:06 AM

Southampton ZBA Public Hearing On Bridgehampton Sand Mine To Continue Thursday

The question is whether or not the business is violating zoning laws, not whether or not he is annoying rich or poor people. If he is violating the law he should pay the penalty" Jan 18, 12 10:47 AM

No Opposition to Drug-Sniffing Dog Idea At Pierson High School

Does it surprise anyone that the angry troll under the bridge does not like kids? Is anyone surprised that this "smaller government" conservative, who often espouses libertarian talking points, would support such a blatant violation of civil liberties?

Yes, bigfresh, children don't make the rules. Deal with it." Jan 26, 12 12:55 PM

Local school boards are an embarrassment. This is is a complete over-reaction and a stupid waste of taxpayer dollars." Jan 26, 12 12:56 PM

Revamped Supermarket Development Proposed For Tuckahoe

Though it may not please him to hear it, I am with bigfresh - NO!!! This whole plan smells rotten.

Anyone who is interested in knowing how rotten, read an excellent letter to the editor in today's SH Press that clearly spells out the revolving-door, crony-capitalism relationship between Morrow, the Town Board, and former Head of the Town Planning Department, Jefferson Murphree, who now works for the very firm that Mr. Morrow hired to write the recently submitted "Tuckahoe Shopping Center" marketing study (SH Press needs to tell that story)

Mr. Morrow is still asking to be granted a change of zoning. He is still asking to build 60,000 square feet of retail space (and a parking lot the size of Gabreski airport) in an area zoned Highway Business where buildings are limited to 10,000 to 15,000 square feet. He still arrogantly insists that he will be the one to pave the way for the conversion of CR 39 to a full-fledged suburban strip mall.

Take a look at the drawings. Does anyone really believe that a customer leaving this shopping center would be able to make a left turn onto CR 39? Seriously? Yet that is what it calls for. And if you live on Magee Street or Bishops lane or any other quiet side street in the vicinity, are you prepared to see your sleepy neighborhood turned into a semi-truck access road at 3 AM and hundreds of additional cars driving by your home each day?

`" Mar 1, 12 8:53 PM

Some of the folks posting here simply don't care what becomes of the town. They care only about convenience and are more than willing to encourage the town to change zoning to satisfy their wants.

Morrow would only be the beginning. Once you open the flood gates, you won't be able to hold back the tide.

And this has nothing to do with any nonsense about the free market or government telling a land owner what he can or cannot do. When you buy a piece of land you are agreeing to the zoning restrictions that come with it.

In Morrow's case, as with so many other developers, they feel they can make a few campaign donations, spread some money around and then do as they please. Everyone must play by the same rules. " Mar 3, 12 3:21 PM

Big fresh, I cannot remember the exact amount he gave ( it was in the thousands) but the worst part is that it was given after she was elected. Before the election he spread it around to everyone, then he targeted his pay-offs. The donation should never have been accepted " Mar 4, 12 11:46 AM

What does anything you've just said have to do with this conversation?" Mar 4, 12 12:03 PM

Tuckahoe King Kullen Plans Won't Deter Village Push For New Grocery

Why not build one on every corner? All the proponents of both proposals make this ludicrous argument that generating new traffic actually decreases traffic. What? They speak of this great "need" for a grocery store. If only they focused an equal amount of energy on the need for affordable housing, the need to get golf courses to pay school taxes. The need to attempt to maintain some quality of life and to stop catering to wants and convenience. The town's CR 39 study is nothing more than a permission slip signed by paid cronies.

Do folks know that Jefferson Murphree, an advocate for Morrow while on the taxpayer dime, now works for the very same firm that Morrow hired to write his marketing plan? And to make matters worse, Morrow's minion, Freda Eisenberg, wrote the 39 corridor study and is set to be appointed the head of the planning commission? " Mar 7, 12 5:35 PM

Morrow's plan is an arrogant attempt to lead the charge of over-development and suburban blight. We have three grocery stores within a five mile radius and a large number of specialty stores including summer fruit and vegetable stands. For people who think Stop and Shop is too far way, order your food using Pea Pod delivery service which only charges a $3.00 fee and means less cars on the road.

What a society of spoiled convenience seekers we've become. CR39 is a mess. Adding a 40,000 square foot grocery store with 500 parking spots and another freaking bank will only make it worse. Enough is enough. " Mar 13, 12 4:17 PM

I do not define progress as a march towards strip mall suburbia. If you do, then perhaps you should consider Nassau county." Mar 14, 12 7:55 AM

Altschuler Gets Indepence Party Nod

Proof positive that that McKay and his party have no principles. " Mar 21, 12 2:14 PM

Yes, I would. Mr. Bishop is deserving of an endorsement while Mr. Altschuler is a know snake from New Jersey who out-sourced tens of thousands of American jobs. What a completely inane question." Mar 21, 12 4:19 PM

No kidding, Mick. We believe Tim is worthy of endorsement and Randy Outsourcer is not. Your childish name calling says more about you than those whom you attempt to insult." Mar 22, 12 10:58 AM

Seminar, think about the complete inanity of your assertion. Why would those of us who SUPPORT Tim Bishop complain about his Independence party endorsement? We agreed with the endorsement because we believe Tim was and is worthy of it.

This endorsement of Altschuler, on the other hand is nothing more than a thumbs up to a carpet bagger from NJ who literally destroyed tens of thousands American jobs. This is not a party line issue. Any voter who would stand with a man who made millions by shipping jobs overseas is a voter who does not care about the American people." Mar 23, 12 1:36 PM

Attorney Warns Quogue Village Not To Reject Eruv Application

The inanities just keep on coming." Mar 23, 12 6:55 PM

Seminar, perhaps you should try reading more carefully before going off on a rant. The word I used was not "insanity" it was "inanities". Google it as it apllies to your post as well. " Mar 24, 12 7:49 AM

The celebration of the birth if Christ is not a secular holiday. It is not celebrated by Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, or Hindus it is celebrated by Christians. Santa Nicola is a catholic saint. Nice try, highhatsize. I would have expected more from an intellectual thinker. If the first amendment truly prohibits this then demand the town not spend tax dollars for Christian holidays. Bigotry is the only excuse for the hypocrisy illustrated in posts that make excuses for one religion while attacking another" Mar 24, 12 4:18 PM

Altschuler Challenges Bishop To Debate On Health Care

How about Altschuler has a debate with the Americans who's jobs he shipped to Pakistan and India. I would love to hear him rationalize the intentional destruction of thousands of American jobs and the live's of those who lost their jobs.

The "Obamacare" issue is a distraction. A plurality of Americans say they we should keep it or expand it. The republicans, including Randy, our completely out of touch with the American public. Take your ill-gotten money and go back to Jersey." Mar 28, 12 1:51 PM

In November you are going to have a "Taste" of the same. The teaparty is over. Obama will be re-elected, dems will hold the senate and probably take the house and then you can bang your head against the wall for another four years." Mar 28, 12 2:28 PM

Miss New York Visits Tuckahoe School To Discuss Bullying

What is that supposed to mean?" Mar 30, 12 9:19 PM

Are you kidding? Is there any article that you will not reply to based on your rigid, right-wing ideology? Witch Hazel is correct. Kids ARE being bullied because of race and religion. I hear it all of the time. Your attempt to blame progressives and teachers is pathetic, ludicrous and completely off topic" Mar 31, 12 11:42 AM

Springs School Will Cut Teacher Positions To Stay Under Tax Cap

These cuts are not because of "tough economic" times they are a direct result of governor Cuomo's short-sighted, ill-conceived tax cap. Our school budgets were already subject to voter approval and the voters, more often than not, approved them. If they did not, schools were forced to come up with a new budget or stick with the one from the previous year. The system worked fine and the budget control was in the hands if the voters. Cutting teachers is NOT the solution to America's education problems and the incessant teacher bashing is childish and wrong and NO, I am not a teacher" Apr 6, 12 7:22 AM
