UPDATE: Driver Hospitalized After LIRR Train Hits Car In Southampton On Sunday Afternoon

So if the gates were working...The driver tried to beat the train?" Aug 3, 15 7:46 PM

East Hampton Camp Relocates Counselors From Three Houses After Court Order

Yeah those Republic politicians are so much more scrupulous! They would never dream of spending other's money on anything shady, say like baseless wars, or subsidies to oil companies or anything like that...

Looming Roger Waters Concert Draws Ire From Jewish Residents, Threaten To Picket

Many people didn't like the G.W. Bush administration, and many don't like the Obama administration. That does not mean these people don't like Americans or America as a whole. Waters, not to mention many Jews across the world, don't like the policies of the sitting Israeli government. That doesn't mean these people are anti Semitic or anti Israel.

I think Scientologists are a cult of buffoons, but I like Beck's music and I'll pay to hear him play it. My choice, my money and I guarantee I won't leave his concert an L. Ron Hubbard acolyte. " Oct 20, 15 12:47 PM

Driver In Connection With Anna Pump's Death Says He Did Not See Her In Crosswalk

Ms. Pump's death is tragic. By all accounts the driver was sober, not speeding, the cross walk sign was missing, and the cross walk is poorly lit.
If Mr. Ortega had been driving in the same manner with his fines paid, he wouldn't have required the interlock device, his license would have been valid and the outcome would have been EXACTLY the same! Yes he broke the law by driving illegally but in this case his crime is about as relevant to the outcome as if he had been convicted of urinating in public." Oct 22, 15 5:36 PM

Looming Roger Waters Concert Draws Ire From Jewish Residents, Threaten To Picket

Waters last concert tour (2010-2013) of "The Wall", was the largest grossing tour ever by a solo performer. I'd cite my source but the censors here will delete it. You can G00gle it on the site that begins with wiki. 4.1 million people attended with an average of 19,000 people/show. over $465 million gross." Oct 23, 15 1:22 PM

There's a Music magazine with a name just like a famous band. From a recent article:
"Waters says he wants it known that his barbs are aimed solely at the current Israeli government. "It's not the Israeli people, not Jews and not Judaism," he says. "I would never dream of attacking them. In fact, a lot of the Israelis are the people who are putting the most into fighting the hardest because they believe it is the most effective tool for changing policies of their own government."

Roger Waters Show Draws Protestors At Bay Street Theater On Friday

Roger Waters was not boycotted. Just the opposite. He presence at the theater was protested. With an average of 19,000 people attending each of his solo tour shows over the last few years I doubt he was terribly concerned about these 60 people. Mr. Waters and the protesters all enjoy freedom of speech in this country. They are free to protest and he's free to sell a half billion dollars in tickets per tour..." Oct 31, 15 4:06 PM

I think it's more like 300 seats actually..." Oct 31, 15 7:10 PM

The headline of this article is completely inaccurate. The show was not "boycotted". Once again I have to ask, does The Press have proofreaders???" Oct 31, 15 7:13 PM

Not too well." Oct 31, 15 9:14 PM

Waters has called out plenty of countries for human rights violations, he doesn't single out Jews. The sitting Israeli government is not a jew and it's policies do not reflect the views of all jews, and perhaps only those of a minority. His words explaining his position on Israel have been posted here on this forum repeatedly but you choose to ignore his clarifications regarding his position. It is you sir who are single minded and clearly very biased towards anything that questions Israel's actions or motives. No one (and no country) is beyond reproach.

Please take the time time to read Gideon Levy's article in Haaretz: "Roger Waters Sets the Record Straight: I Hate Apartheid, Not Israel" from August 2nd. 2015 before you make any further misinformed comments. " Nov 1, 15 3:14 PM

Are you addressing Waters of Israel with your witty comment. It always boils down to juvenile name calling on this forum. Reminds me of the players in the Israeli/Palestine conflict. Both sides too arrogant and stubborn to settle for the sake of their future generations. All because each side believes that their imaginary god, is superior to the other's. What a waste of time and blood..." Nov 1, 15 3:21 PM

You already said that! Are you speaking of Pink Floyd's/Water's inflatable pig? It is indeed a facsimile of a swine. Have you only a one word vocabulary?!?" Nov 3, 15 7:05 PM

Wrong. Where did you pull that statement out of? Are you omniscient? Please show us one iota of proof to validate your prejudicial statement." Nov 4, 15 8:33 PM

Biba,

You dismiss everything you disagree with. Your use of the word "facts" in many/most cases should be read as "your opinion" . There is no sense discussing any of this with you further because NOTHING said will sway your OPINION about Israel. Your view can be very simply summarized; Israelis good, Palestinians bad. (notice there is no gray area)" Nov 6, 15 5:46 PM

Censor: Please delete my duplicate post. Thank you." Nov 6, 15 5:47 PM

Biba,

You miss my point. Many of the statements you make and represent as facts are actually your opinions.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a radical group and their agenda represented in 1991's "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic goal for the group in North America", is certainly not one anyone outside of the brotherhood would endorse.

The Muslim Brotherhood does not represent the average Palestinian any more than Rabbi Dov Lior represents the average Israeli. He makes lovely statements like "All of those who believe in the Torah know that this land (Israel) was promised solely to these people. (by whom, an imaginary being in the sky?) There is no room for another national entity in this place. There has never been a state belonging to another people here. It belongs exclusively to the Jewish people."

Are his statements fact or opinion? Do I agree with him? No. Do you?

There are two sides to every story. Neither side is wholly correct. That was what I meant in my previous post about no gray area. If there is no gray, there is no solution, and the Palestinians and Israelis can just keep spilling blood until there is no one left to fight.

" Nov 7, 15 6:40 PM

Biba, I do understand. As far as you are concerned there is no gray, no discussion, only your view is valid. There is no possibility for discourse since you believe you are right and all other's opinions are invalid.

It is a waste of time time attempting to debate you. You dismiss disparate viewpoints out of hand. At least you can take comfort in your view that you are infallible. I hope you agree with the Pope or there may be a major conflict in your future (he's purportedly infallible as well)." Nov 9, 15 12:45 AM

Sag Harbor School District Continues To Weigh Stella Maris Purchase

Before we spend money on a real estate acquisition, how about this?

1. Move the middle high/school start times in line with what has been proven to be one of the most important factors in our children's education. (Yes, I know people are sick of hearing about it, but the evidence for it just keeps flooding in).
2. Stop taking our students out of school early to attend sporting events that are at times over an hour away,
3. Stop sending all of our teachers, who are also coaches, out of the classrooms to travel to the same sporting events the students travel to. (during the academic support period)
4. Academic support is relegated to the last period of the day, when the students who need help are already frazzled. This is so that our athletes (and teachers) can leave early without missing required classes.

I realize we can't just buy a few buses to accomplish everything I mentioned, but it would sure be the best place to start. The SHSD is willing to spend $3.5 million plus much more in the future for unknown, or at least at this point, undisclosed reasons. Let's fix what we already know is wrong." Nov 10, 15 9:59 PM

A few more thoughts:

SHSD already has a parking and traffic problem. Stella Maris has Zero parking. How will students and staff move between buildings in inclement weather? Where will additional staff park? Will we need more crossing guards/cross walks on the village's busiest street? What about snow? We have no municipal sidewalk clearing. Will we rely on the homeowners to clean up their sidewalks before school begins, or does the school pay for this (could be a nice windfall for residents on Hampton Street!)? When does the public find out some answers to even the tiny fraction of questions out there that I've thought of? Too many executive sessions...What happened to transparency?" Nov 10, 15 10:10 PM

Roger Waters Show Draws Protestors At Bay Street Theater On Friday

Biba, once again, just your opinion. You really don't understand the fundamental differences between facts and opinions. You have a very biased viewpoint which I have pointed out previously. Whether or not you are correct is irrelevant. You will side with the Israelis and against the Palestinians on all issues regardless of the circumstances or actions that precede your comments. This constant and easily documented bias (via this page alone!) renders your posts on this subject irrelevant." Nov 12, 15 8:36 PM

UPDATE: Southampton Town Councilman Brad Bender Pleaded Guilty On Drug Charges And Resigns, Facing Up To 20 Years In Prison

I have no beef with your post, but I will take this opportunity to point out something that is a personal pet peeve.
It is the Democratic Party not the Democrat Party. The latter name was bestowed by the RNC several years ago as a petty insult. I recall reading that all Republican members of Congress were encouraged to use the new name as often as possible.

Southampton School District To Look Into Later Start Time For Students

For the record, it's 10 minutes later for Sag Harbor, not 15. Not significant and there is no real world benefit. Do it right, follow the advice of the all of the professional and medical groups who have made it clear that 8:30AM is the earliest recommended time, or just admit that our students health and future success is not a priority."

Zeldin Introduces Bill Aiming To Prevent Suspected Terrorists From Buying Guns And Explosives

Anyone who posts here and has the temerity to dismiss Mr. Quinn's eloquently stated opinion on the danger of having untrained "good guys with guns" in a mass shooting should just stop talking now. Here is a man with 25 years in the military who has the training and experience to be one of those good guys and he explains very clearly what a difficult chaotic experience a gunfight is even for those with experience and training.

I have yet to come across any professionals with military or specialized police training who advocate a bunch of untrained amateurs with guns trying to stop a mass shooting. Just because you have a sidearm and play Call of Duty doesn't mean you have a clue what to do in a situation where there are a group of civilians and a few bad guys shooting. " Dec 12, 15 7:28 PM

I mistakenly attributed Mr. Hatch's words to Mr. Quinn. I apologize for the error." Dec 12, 15 7:31 PM

Sag Harbor School District Opts Out Of National School Breakfast And Lunch Program Rules

Sag Harbor UFSD has a real problem with providing healthy food and appropriate times for the students to eat. With no cafeteria in the elementary school and a stove free kitchen for the 6th through 12th grade, prepared food options are severely limited. Selling Snapple and diet Snapple beverages in the cafeteria aren't making up for the lack of freshly prepared food. With 6th grade lunch periods starting at 10:25AM they round out their complete dietary disfunction.

Rather than opt out, how about becoming compliant? The district has tens of thousands of dollars to investigate purchasing more real estate for unknown reasons (Stella Maris Campus) but not enough money to have a proper cafeteria and DOE compliant lunch program? Ms. Buscemi's comment is sadly laughable. To paraphrase: "We're only non-compliant on the nutritional part of the DOE requirements" School officials are undeterred however and will continue to serve their non-compliant "healthy" meals.
