East Hampton School Board Member Applies For Interim Superintendent Spot

I'm sorry,What? An interim superintendent working part time typically makes $1000.00 per day? And yet schools all across the island are keying off teachers who are actually in the classroom shaping our kids futures? What's wrong with this picture?" Jul 9, 11 2:01 PM

Laying off. Sorry." Jul 9, 11 2:01 PM

Schumer Announces New Helicopter Routes In Works

Royal we- I am nowhere near retirement age, and my wife and I work very hard all week long. Every weekend from memorial day to labor day all we hear is a constant stream of helicopters, some flying so low it seems like we are being invaded. It's not too much to ask to have them spend a few extra minutes flying time taking a more circuitous route to the airport over the water. My apologies that you have to work all weekend.

Politically Divided Southampton Town Board Names New Police Captain

With all the school districts out here laying off teachers left and right, wanting to reopen contact negotions, and implement pay freezes, and the county 500 million in debt, how is it that the police dept basically prints its own money? Ridiculous salaries comparative to ....well anywhere, twice as much starting salary as Nassau, where the police actually do something, and overtime like you wouldn't believe, mainly because so many officers are out on disabilty( although I see a few of these "injured officers " working out at the gym every day. It's madness I tell you." Mar 13, 12 7:31 PM

Bridgehampton Teachers Volunteer To Forgo Salary Increases

Crusader- how about the fact that East Quogue is one of the lowest paid districts in the county. And the board and administration is trying to do this with the teachers in east quogue, mere weeks after they purchased a piece of property that they didn't even need! Why not forgo the property purchase so you can afford to pay your teachers!

Southampton Schools Expect To Stay Within Tax Cap, Helped By Salary Savings

Why should they give up the raises they are contractually obligated to? The district gave them this contract, they should have foreseen budget issues and not given it to begin with. A contract is just that, a guarantee. What is your problem with east quogue school anyway? Did they deny you a job? You are the most short sighted vindictive person on here. Maybe the district shouldn't have overpaid for a piece of property they have no use for if they knew that they were in financial trouble" Mar 22, 12 7:32 AM

Not in any way connected to the gravy train, just tired of listening to all you people bitch about teachers out here. I actually agree with you maxwell on your point of it taking more and more people to do less work, but that's the administrations doing, they shouldn't be hiring teachers if they aren't going to be able to afford them. Bridgehampton schools set a precedent by agreeing to a pay freeze that every school system out here is going to jump on, but you have to remember, bridgehampton teachers are much more highly paid than east quogue, with a much smaller school. Again, these contacts were agreed upon by BOTH parties. You don't see the teachers trying to force the opening of their contracts if there is a budget surplus. " Mar 22, 12 3:26 PM

Sag Harbor School Board Holds Off On Changes To Nutrition Policy

Listen, I'm all for having kids eat as healthy as possible, my own daughter has great eating habits that my wife and I have instilled. You can easily find a healthy jelly for these sandwiches, but worst case, isn't it better to give a child a little artificial sweetener than have them go hungry? " Apr 20, 12 7:32 PM

Bchgrl, don't even get me started on the peanut butter policy at sag harbor. It's so backwards. If a kid has a peanut allergy, all the Other kids in the class are ostracized. If my daughter wants peanut butter, she has to go to another classroom to eat, or sometimes eat in the hallway. How does that make any sense. Some parent has scared the heck out of the school saying their kid might have a bad reaction, and the school has bowed to them. Total B.S. " Apr 24, 12 7:46 AM

Hey Phil, you have no idea what you are talking about. The only way to trigger an allergic reaction is by either ingesting peanut butter or inhaling aerosolized oil from cooking with peanut oil. An allergic child could smell a peanut butter sandwich for hours with no reaction. " Apr 25, 12 7:28 AM

Wrong. The only way to trigger a reaction is through actual ingestion of nut product or inhalation of aerosolized nuts,I.e cooking with peanut oil. Even rubbing peanut butter all over a highly allergic person only produces a mild rash. Odor has absolutely nothing to do with it. " May 1, 12 7:39 AM

Police Suspension May Hint At Issues In Department

School Results: Tuckahoe Is Only District On South Fork To Reject Proposed 2012-13 Budget

Right on witch hazel. I couldn't agree more. " May 15, 12 8:38 PM

"you see that bubbling on these boards? It's not a good sign. The people want to be fair and want fairness in return." double standard you need a life. All the bubbling on these boards comes from the same 6-8 people who literally have nothing better to do than comment on every issue. If you go by these boards alone, no budget on the east end would have passed, yet lo and behold, save for one , they all did by nice margins. Go find something else to complain about. " May 16, 12 9:13 PM

Hey Leon, I'm sure whatever job you have, there are plenty of people who would do it for less also. The job of the union is to get the teachers the highest salary possible. It's the boards that approved those terms, not the teachers, who are to blame. " May 17, 12 4:50 PM

Maxwell, you are an idiot. My wife is a teacher, she has her masters degree in education, + 45 credit hours, + plus she is taking classes to improve herself now. She takes as many courses as she can to keep herself up on the latest technology and state requirements. As far as working 188 days, that's fine if they go to school, do their job , and leave, which I'm sure some do, but she does lesson plans at night, grades papers on the weekends, and spends time in her summer break planning for the coming year. And she only teaches 2nd grade. My brother in law is a high school English teacher, sometimes works the equivalent of 80 hours a week! Their pay is commenserate with their level of education, in many cases lower than what others at their level are making. Keep throwing out your broad generalizations and showing what an idiot you are. Jealous?" May 18, 12 3:06 PM

Double standard, there is no debate with most of the people who post on these boards, they are just out to complain about each and everything to make their miserable lives seem a little better.No matter what the issue, the same 6-8 people find a way to complain about it. Upon saying that, I would like to apologize to you for my earlier post against you, it just frustrates me that so many keyboard warriors have nothing better to do than bash, unfortunately I took your post the wrong way and let my frustration out on you, so I apologize.

School Results: Tuckahoe Is Only District On South Fork To Reject Proposed 2012-13 Budget

Maxwell, maybe you should have been this well though out in your previous post, where you said no teachers do any extra work, they don't do anything in the summer, and they only work 170 days, instead of just blasting away with your idiotic comments. Part of the reason it does cost more is because of inefficient management, and illegals who don't contribute to the tax base. By the way, my wife has been teaching 15 years, with the credits I described above, and has yet to pull in 100k, So it's not like they are starting out at that level, you have to earn it. Go grouse about the cops, who make 100k after 5 years, plus overtime. And 100k to live on the east end isn't really that much these day. " May 21, 12 8:26 PM

Two Convicted Drug Dealers Released From Prison; D.A. Cites 'Credibility' Of Arresting Street Crime Unit Officer

Police Say 30-Year-Old Hispanic Man Is Being Sought In Fatal Hit-And-Run; Name Still Not Released

Why is he a racist? There were no racial slurs in his post. He said ILLEGALS driving drunk and then not facing the consequences was a growing problem. Statistically this is true. Where is the racism in that ? " Jul 16, 12 6:11 PM

No, you are making that assumption. I am against ILLEGAL immigration, but I'm not racist. People always seem to overlook the word illegal in illegal immigration. I have absolutely no problem with immigrants. I work with a woman who came here with her husband legally, is working to obtain her citizenship, and is one of the nicest, hardest working people you will ever meet. However, many illegal immigrants out here just abuse the system, causing everything from school taxes to health care costs to skyrocket. These people I am against. If that makes me a racist by your definition, so be it, but I think you might be a little off base there. " Jul 16, 12 7:02 PM

Cops: Woman Sexually Assaulted In Southampton On Sunday

Listen, do I agree with the bigotry of big fresh, no. But once again, you seem to gloss right over the ILLEGAL word. I just don't understand it. "bf just wants to get those damn illegals who all happen to be Hispanic out of our white neighborhoods". Well yes, if they are ILLEGAL they should be out of our white neighborhoods. And black neighborhoods. And Hispanic neighborhoods. Why is that so hard to grasp?" Jul 26, 12 11:05 AM

Phil, I agree with you. Not all Hispanics are illegal. But it seems that quite a few people on these boards gloss over the fact that Illegals are breaking the law just by being here. Someone commented the other day" just because they are here illegally doesn't make the, criminals". Well, yes, actually it does. I thought from your wording in your post that that was where you were going. " Jul 27, 12 7:49 PM
