Public Hearing Continues On Remsenburg Subdivision On Thursday

Why is it when someone is doing something constructive 50 people show up to try to derail him. (mostly jealous busy bodies) This country is going down the toilet because everyone is afraid to spend money and invest capital. Here you have a guy ready to invest, and you want to lynch him. Wake up complainers. PS No I don't know developer or have an interest in project." Aug 9, 11 7:33 PM

Why is it your business what this guy spends his money on? People should mind there own business!" Aug 9, 11 7:36 PM

Dangerous speculation? I'm sure the guy has PRIVATE money or his own money so who cares what he does with it. What made this country is taking a chance and creating something.
I hate to tell you the "local" bumpkin wouldn't have a job if not for the so called city people. Plus our RE taxes would be many times hire if not for city people." Aug 10, 11 9:38 AM

Amazing you can compare a strip club, and biker bar with a subdivision. When I hear thoughts like that it's no wonder the economy is on shaky ground." Aug 10, 11 11:31 PM

Southampton Village Police Officers Promoted

Thank goodness we have another captain and lieutenant. The crime in Southampton is rampant. These church goers j walking after Sunday mass must be stopped. Don't worry a couple more overpriced cops will fix everything. Seriously when will this country learn it's time to cut and not promote. We are on the road to bankruptcy and no one wants to cut anything. This little village police force costs millions, and for what? To make sure people do 25 mph on Hill St?" Aug 15, 11 7:30 PM

East Quogue Couple Fears That Twice-Convicted DWI Driver Won't Face Jail Time

Don't worry she completed her cocktail college, and paid her $700 fine she's cured. What a joke as far as I'm concerned she shot a couple rounds into someone's car and luckily just injured them. Put her away for 6 monthe and lets see how she likes it. Makes me sick!" Aug 15, 11 8:05 PM

Southampton Town Denied Temporary Restraining Order On Noyac Property

Sure lets shut down a house in the middle of no where. A house that promotes people spending money, and subsidizing the east end economy. The owners of this house need to let the Republican Party hold fund raisers there, and they will be left alone.
Take for instance the Boardy Barn. They have all types of fund raisers there so all hell breaks loose on Sundy. No less than ten cops are there at any one time circling private property looking for violaters. Massive public intoxication, fights dwi's you name it and it goes on there, and officials turn a blind eye.
Or how about the 100's of illegals living in Hampton Bays. This has cost the Hampton Bays school district tens of millions. Not to mention Southampton Hospital and the burden they have been left with.
Just another example of the town playing politics and asleep at the wheel." Aug 22, 11 9:18 AM

Lesters Plead Not Guilty In East Hampton Town Justice Court

1000's of illegals getting free everything in East Hampton, and our govt spends resources confiscating some illegal fish? What a waste of taxpayer dollars!" Aug 23, 11 9:55 AM

Graboski Calls For Reducing Number Of Planning Board And Zoning Board Of Appeals Members

How about we cut the town electrical dept to zero employees. This is a disorganized mess that loses money. The private sector does their job for a lot less money. How about getting rid of some cops. Go down to the Boardy Barn on Sunday and see Southamptons finest hard at work. Usually a minimum of ten officers protecting private property and oogling girls. What about highway workers? With out the leaf pickup what the heck will they be doing this fall? " Aug 23, 11 11:26 PM

UPDATE: There Is Still Room At Shelters For Local Residents

I think a lot of people are taking the hurricane very lightly. It could weaken, but we can be devastated with a lot less power than a hurricane. If we have a high lunar tide, and the wind is in the right direction we could have massive flooding. Add in there the over 12 inchs of rain expected, and you have the potential for a devastating storm. Stay inside tie up potential flying objects, and pray for the best!" Aug 26, 11 9:24 AM

Massive Brawl Breaks Out At 230 Elm; One Arrested

Ha ha, Oh the place that the village over looked as they renovated without a building permit? The place is a joke the old Polish Hall now a night club? How does someone loan out there liquor license to these promoters for events? This village is too busy walking the streets giving parking tickets, and not watching this mess. If anyone got hurt they should sue the village they were well aware of this, and turned a blind eye to it." Sep 5, 11 10:26 PM

The 130k a year patrolman couldn't stop the fight? What about the 250k a year chief? He didn't learn crowd control at one of those village paid for FBI camps? Abolish the village dept get the state police here who are better trained, and more experienced in this type of situation. The village police did nothing all summer and were warned about what was going on at 230 Main. At least the mayor made no parking on Elm St., and tried to help.
They are payed to protect the village not promote activities that are dangerous to the community! " Sep 6, 11 3:14 PM

Driver Faces Charges Following Westhampton Beach Crash

Did anyone notice where it said multiple charges of drug possession? I guess it's ok to have pot? Everyone has an excuse that's why society is the way it is." Sep 20, 11 4:15 PM

Southampton Man Charged With DWI After Driving Wrong Way On Sunrise Highway

No evil intent? If God forbid one of your relatives was going east bound you would know there was evil intent. But it's ok because the suspect isn't a habitual drunk driver. lol Ask any cop and they will tell you most drunk drivers are habitual they are just good at not getting caught!!" Sep 20, 11 4:21 PM

Southampton Village Considers Buying Nuisance Nightspot

Let the village cops stop giving parking tickets and focus on the noise at the social club. We don't need to close this place just make them conform to zoning and noise ordinances. Let the village make the code book distinguish beween nite club and restaurant. Our country is in big trouble, and we continue to spend money on fire houses and vacant land. When will we wake up?"

2012 Southampton Town Budget Will Include Staff Cuts

The problems with cops and the union is they just don't get it. Our economy is in a free fall, and they want raises still!. Half the cops in Southampton are related to someone on the force or town hall. You could get rid of everyone of them and have there positions filled by City cops for half the pay. This is a fact. We live in a low crime area so lets not hear about the risking of lthere lives. If they don't like the job QUIT. There are 30,000 applications of people waiting for there jobs. Who has the teeth to stand up to the cops?" Sep 22, 11 9:10 PM

Plenty of people on line to take their full benefit peanut jobs. If they don't like it they should quit!!" Sep 23, 11 9:14 PM

Businesses Fear Giant Wage Jump For Seasonal Workers

I don't understand how they can say there would be no one to fill a position of digging a tree or mowing a lawn. How do you think it was done before we were flooded with illegals? The problem is no one with a family, and a decent life can live on nine dollars an hour. Raise prices for services the rich can afford it. We have 9% unemployment, and 17% under employment we don't need to import help." Sep 27, 11 9:03 PM

The pool company will have to pay $18 dollars an hour now? Most pool companies charge over a $100 an hour if they do repairs on your pool. These people that come here for $9.00 an hour are like indentured servents. They live with many people to a house in poor housing. Some employers around here have used this program out of pure greed. Treat people right, and stop abusing them!" Sep 28, 11 5:22 PM

Hey let the town of Southampton hire people on this program. Nine bucks an hour and no benefits. Five million dollar budget gap solved!" Sep 29, 11 4:36 PM

After 37 Years, Veteran Detective Retires From Southampton Force

All the cops do a good job that's not the point. The average cop make more than 100k full benefits, and many days off. The point is we can't afford it." Sep 29, 11 9:32 PM

Republicans Challenge Forced Police Retirements In Southampton Budget As Political

I can shed no tears for officers making 140k a year with having many sick days, vacation days, and personel days. Basically working 160 days a year with full benefits to which they contribute zero. A retirement after 20 years, and a union that thinks they are above the rest of town employees. There is low crime on the east end, and we have an abundance of law enforcement. The New York State Police, Sheriffs, County Police, Village Cops, plus Railroad, and park police. The officers will telling us they will have a void in protection is a scare tactic. If they can't do their jobs they should retire immediately. There are thousands of NYC cops ready to fill their shoes. I'm not saying cops don't do a good job we just can't afford them."

Riverhead School Voters Pass First Riverhead Bond Proposition; Nix Second

Another 73 million dollars on the backs of homeowners. Meanwhile the illegals are sending their kids to public school for free, and paying no taxes. No one wants to face the issue of illegals, and taxes. Time to wake up!" Oct 12, 11 1:09 PM

Sparks Fly Over Debate On Budget Calendar

Very interesting. Mr Kratoville worked at the defunct and political OTB as a business manager. Marietta Seaman also had a political patronage job at OTB doing God knows what. It seems Mrs Seaman has an open line to the Republican board members and especially Mrs Graboski. Now I have an idea where the Kratoville appointment came from. What does this business manager do anyway? We have a five million dollar budget gap, how did this manager help us?
I'm a registered Republican, and I'm sick of this party boss manipulating BS." Oct 12, 11 7:26 PM

I don't think thaat politicians have realized that politics as usual are becoming less exceptable to voters. Half of town hall is filled with relatives of past and present politicians. I can't believe in this economic enviroment the town couldn't find a person more qualified than Mr Kratoville for less money. Time to vote these bums out. The Southampton Republican Party has become a clown show with no end in sight." Oct 13, 11 2:35 PM

Two Southampton Schools Flagged For Improvement By State

Southampton schools are too busy giving free computers and tech gadgets to students. These computers are no substitute for teaching the basics of reading, writing, and arithmatic. The school is top heavy with overpriced executives, and superintendents not to mention lazy teachers. It is time to clean house! There are plenty of qualified teachers ready to take their jobs."
