Shinnecocks are looking at benefits that come with federal recognition

Montauk fishermen cited for violations

Wow. Allow me to respond to this twisted, demented post.

Striped bass, Fluke etc are regulated by the state. NJ has different regs than NY. Therefore, the DEC does indeed set the limits. As for the Blackfish holding pots, can't help ya. We don't do that in Shinnecock.

I agree that some fishermen blow their money in gin mills. These men are only on deck because they can work their asses off. When I fished, I hired men based on ability to work. Drugs, alcohol etc were NOT permitted aboard. I didn't care what the crew did on land. I'm a builder now. I don't care what the sheetrockers do when they leave my site either. Same thing.

I finished the trip, cleaned the boat & went home to my family. I've been married for 20 years & have a Honor student graduating this year. My money went to braces, ballet lessons, horseback lessons...Get the picture? Most of the guys I worked with did the same. Dave Aripotch has been sober as long as I've known him.

Are you a "Real Fisherman"? Or are you a sporty, an amateur.

PS-I'm all for a fishing license fee structure. " Jan 17, 10 8:17 AM

Southampton Village building inspector fell short on certification hours

Does that also mean that any stop work orders issued by Jon would be null & void?

Jon is an honest man & good building inspector. The village building department was probably very busy those years & Jon may not have been given time to attend classes. This sounds like a witch hunt to me.

" Mar 18, 10 7:24 AM

When I go to the Village Building Dept, Jon is usually in his office.

2003-2009 were very busy years. It was a building boom. Why don't you FOIL how many hours Jon was at the Real Estate office.

The wall that fell on the laborer was put in after the foundation inspection. If Evergreen knew how inspections are done, this would not be used to smear a good mans name. Burube Builders added a wall (with no footing) after the waterproofing/foundation inspection. After this horrible accident, Jon added a "footings" inspection to the list. He does his job.

You must be very proud of yourself for exposing this important issue." Mar 19, 10 7:05 AM

Actually, Evergreen, Berube put up that wall AFTER the foundation waterproofing inspection. If he had backfilled, it never would have been noticed. If a contractor does something after inspection, before closing view to the affected area there is really no way to tell, unless something goes wrong down the road.

In the town, footing inspections are still not required. The Village requires footing and rebar inspections. Mr. Foster has attempted to rectify the issue, but that will only work for honest builders." Mar 19, 10 8:31 PM

How is throwing Mr. Foster under the bus "standing up to the developers who are a bunch of fly by night". Jon is as local as you can get." Mar 22, 10 10:00 PM

Only by putting an inspector on every job, all the time. Or daily inspections. We could hire 20 more inspectors. Stimulate the economy. Then the Village would need more bean counters to deal with the payroll. " Mar 22, 10 10:02 PM

Lets get a Taco Bell too. And a Boston Market. Oh, a Panera would be nice. Who needs local restaurants? If we had a Pizza Hut in Tuckahoe, we could get rid of Paul & Mr. Gambino. Who needs local businesses? Wait lets put a staples there, too.

Building inspector training requirements go unmet

So, now we know that Jon isn't the only East End Building inspector to have fallen behind on his CE requirements during the building boom. Can we please stop this ridiculous witch hunt & move on? The SH Village Building Inspectors don't deserve this. They are good men who do their job with the highest professionalism.

Is it coincidence that all of the Inspectors from smaller villages/Hamlets have fallen behind? Could it be that there really wasn't time for them to travel to take training? Maybe all of the local building depts. could set up training locally for the inspectors." Apr 3, 10 7:38 AM

Whale beached in East Hampton survives first attempt at euthanization

Thank you, Nature.

I have known Chuck Bowman my whole life. He is neither incompetent, nor unqualified for the position he holds. I can't believe the way he is betting treated on this site. You people should be ashamed of yourselves.

Anything that they do has to be approved by NOAA/NMFS. They have jurisdiction over Cetaceans. Chuck isn't calling the shots. He has a team comprised of his Biologists & Government scientists. Do you people really think that chuck is the only one making decisions here?

Chuck is out in front of the camera because he is President of the association, a 501c3 not for profit group. Its his job to keep the groups name in the media. He is an administrator.

Hopefully that's hard time... When a convict can't obey orders, they send him to a higher security facility. Being that Andy was a corrections officer, the guards are going to be gunning for this punk. No matter where he goes.
