Back to Paper

Suffolk County government’s computer network was struck on September 8 by a massive cyberattack, and last week — three weeks later, hoping it was over — the county began what a spokesperson termed a “rolling restoration” of computer operations. The county government’s websites, email and other online systems were taken offline immediately after the cyberattack. Still, last week, most county computers remained shut down. “Anything we have done has had to be manual,” County Comptroller John M. Kennedy Jr. told me last week. Suffolk County government has had to go back to using paper. Its Information Technology Division is involved ... 3 Oct 2022 by Karl Grossman

Reality Check

Hats off to Councilwoman Cyndi McNamara, who is actually reading what is put before her before voting, unlike her glassy-eyed colleagues, who can’t be bothered until caught out [“Concerning Data About Affordable Housing Development’s Potential To Strain Services in Southampton,” 27east.com, September 28]. Councilwoman McNamara, upon learning about Concern for Independent Living’s (now redubbed “Concern Housing”) proposal to build 60 units of “subsidized” housing (“affordable” is subjective, as is “income restrained” — who isn’t?), became concerned about traffic on County Road 39 and the potential drain on services. Like the public deprived of a “work session” (these severely cutback by ... by Staff Writer

We’ve Been Neutralized

A September 8 Sag Harbor Express article exposed tough guy language written into a government contract [“Sag Harbor Will Review Relationship With Planning Consultant In Wake Of Southampton Contract Disclosure,” 27east.com, September 7]. It reported that the service of “neutralizing” public opposition to a proposed project was purchased by the Town of Southampton. Now, in the permanent public record, our “representatives’’ are paying contractors to “neutralize” us. Unfortunately, it’s not only us. The company offering this “neutralization” has been honing its craft on a giant, unclear, metastasizing development in East Quogue. They now have plenty of experience and a proven ... by Staff Writer

Avert Disaster

It’s always important to consider the consequences of a vote, but sometimes it’s more important than others. This is one of those times. In our local congressional election, Democrat Bridget Fleming is running against Republican Nick LaLota. Fleming has a long and distinguished career as a prosecutor in the Manhattan district attorney’s office, as an elected Southampton Town Council member and now as a Suffolk County legislator. LaLota, after a short stint on the Amityville Village Board, served exclusively as a political appointee, first with the Suffolk County Board of Elections and now with the administrative staff of the Republican ... by Staff Writer

A Taste of Vienna

Just to be on the light side for once: I am earnestly recommending a recipe change to the chefs of Citarella who prepare the stuffed cabbage and stuffed peppers. Right now, these two Citarella offerings resemble the two traditional Mittel-Europa dishes like McDonald’s hamburgers resemble The Palm’s filet mignon. Of course, I have a lot of nerve making cooking suggestions, since I am the last remaining of three generations of Viennese women who never cooked! My grandmother was a businesswoman who opened one of the first movie theaters in Vienna, in the days of a live piano player below the ... by Staff Writer

At a Standstill

I am wondering what is being done to correct the cyber attack on Suffolk County records. I haven’t heard any news from Steve Bellone how the county is dealing with this crisis. The only updates that I have heard are how the county officials are “getting” extra assistance with processing information, and how people can protect their personal information. It has been almost 20 days since this has occurred, and it has affected so many people, including myself — trying to close on a home and selling a home, unable to get title information. The longer this goes on, the ... by Staff Writer
