UPDATE: DA Says Evidence Insufficient To Connect Man Arrested For Southampton Break-In And Sexual Assault With May Stabbing

The 2nd amendment, in its entirety: "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Don't see any guns offered for sale to mentally unstable people or criminals at Wal*Mart guaranteed in there.

That after they are part of a well regulated militia they can keep and bear arms. Seems pretty straightforward. What do you think it says?" Aug 6, 16 10:18 PM

Not likely he would be served or get beer at the 7-11 since he was underage. Did the HBFD serve alcohol to minors at the Carnival without checking IDs? And why was there no follow up the next morning after he was dumped off at the hospital ER? Did the police not ask his name or get ID? We dump drunks off at the hospital now?" Aug 7, 16 8:45 AM

The school never really turned out the scholars to begin with. And the scholarship fund was looted by a Town employee who's still a Town employee.

At least we still have the Boardy Barn on Sundays -- go to the train station today at around 6PM - 8PM and check out the wonderful advertisement we give the rest of the East End." Aug 7, 16 8:48 AM

So now local judges are blaming the Suffolk County DA...who is himself being investigated by the FBI and the US Attorney...and local criminals with national gang affiliations who allegedly participated in a vicious attack are let out of jail after a few days due to a "procedural" lapse.

Something stinks like an open week-old quahog on a hot day...this is an interesting story.

Question: do we know for a fact that Mr. Siciliano-Nunez is NOT a US citizen or in possession of Permanent Resident status (aka :Green Card")" Aug 8, 16 10:36 AM

Again, I fail to see where the 2nd Amendment states that "shall not be abridged" should be interpreted to mean "no restrictions whatsoever, wherever, whenever".

Also, what is the definition of "arms" given the 18th century context cited by your experts? Is this the strict linquistic meaning or the interprettive meaning?Does it necessarily mean a firearm including an AK 47 or perhaps a shoulder launched anti-tank missile or does it more probably, in its 18th Cenutry context, only include pitchforks and sabers?

Still No Buyer For Hampton Bays Diner Building One Year After Closure

Nurel has been trying to open his already built indoor farmer's market for about a year, schmidts can stay where they are. And it wasn't Hispanic Night that made the Diner a target for violations. It was a murder. And the Hispanic Night is now firmly entrenched at the Dream nightclub, also another notorious murder spot in HB. " Aug 17, 16 7:02 PM

Sag Harbor School Board Favoring Natural Turf Field

Wow. Almost 1000 acres of turf farms in Riverhead and about 3 golf course within 10 miles, all using extensive natural turf, and you can't get a good bid from a local contractor? Surprising." Aug 18, 16 11:06 AM

New Radar Speed Limit Signs Installed Near Hampton Bays Elementary, Middle Schools

Remind me: are the crossing guards who work diligently to deter unsafe traffic in front of the school not there anymore? Wonder who got the radar sign contract..." Aug 20, 16 11:41 AM

Sag Harbor School Board Favoring Natural Turf Field

I goggled it. Contract is less than $1.5 million and is not for plumbing, HVAC or electrical -- why does it apply in this case? Also, if the school has a groundskeeper, just curious why laying down sod, which comes from a farm about 30 miles away, and putting a sprinkler on top is so expensive. Doesn't seem like such a hard chore." Aug 21, 16 1:04 PM

Southampton Town Assessor Pushes For Reassessment Of All Commercial Properties

How about instead of $5 million for Tuckahoe we ask for $50 million and use that money for a tax holiday for commercial property taxes." Aug 25, 16 4:20 PM

So get $50 million from the rich folk at the golf course and $150 Millon from the developers of the Quogue golf course and give everyone a tax holiday." Aug 26, 16 11:08 AM

Why are golf courses exempt? Change the law and make the rich old coots pay." Aug 29, 16 9:11 PM

Guardian Angels Come To The East End

Thank you Curtis Sliwa. You may be able to have some interesting patrols on the paths behind the Macys parking lot and the woods west of McDonalds, the Dream nightclub on Saturday night, the Meschutt Beach parking lot on Wednesday night, the small strip of shops in adjacent to Bar Boy, Main Street from the Methodist Church to the corner on Ponquogue, the movie theater parking lot each morning and again after 5PM, and also the walk from Boardy Barn to the train station every Sunday afternoon in the summer."

Southampton Town Supervisor To Meet With Shinnecock Hills President, Michael Bloomberg On Tuckahoe Road Reroute Proposal

They offered $5 million for the road, counter with $50 million, and threaten to make it a public course through eminent domain if they don't accept that. Time to Trump Bloomberg." Sep 8, 16 7:23 PM

Just as Jay got the Town of Southampton as a reward for his help to the elite of Easthampton (want to rent your house to pay for your property taxes? And disrupt your rich neighbors? Why not just sell some of your hedge fund holdings?) when Jay gives up the Town property to Ye Olde Golfe Clubbe he will be rewarded with a New York State sinecure courtesy of political influence. Department of Consumer Affairs commissioner or perhaps a board seat on LIPA our benevolent (malevolent? sometimes it's confusing) utility dictatorship." Sep 9, 16 8:10 AM

There's a really nice picture of Jay and Bloomberg in Dan's Papers with a baby.
Here's another real estate offer -- get the Goldman Sachs partner who owns the empty building formerly the library on the corner of Job's Lane and Main Street in Southampton Village to donate the building to the Town and we'll let them have the street they golf on." Sep 9, 16 8:12 AM

Beach Plum Meadows In Southampton To Be Preserved

Well it's called Beach Plum Meadows. Perhaps planting some native species of Beach Plums, for use of all in their Fall beach plum jelly creation. Some native species of other trees that would be educational would also be nice -- perhaps a meditation garden...The famous trees that were here in the 17th Century and what the native Americans and our country's first settlers saw as aprticularly useful -- eastern white cedar, sugar maple, shagbark hickory."

here's a suggestion for creating more affordable housing in the Town of Southampton: reduce government spending on non-essential services including the administrative salaries and benefits in the schools and town government and use the savings to lower property taxes for all homeowners thereby making their homes more affordable."

Southampton Supervisor Pitches New Housing Division

This is complete over reach. There are plenty of $300,000 houses in Riverhead and RIverside. Run more busses from there to Easthampton if you're so concerned that the rich folk in Easthampton will need to cut their own hedges." Oct 5, 16 3:22 PM

The Hampton Bays school system is seriously underperforming Westhampton and Southampton academically. Why would anyone accept a merger? First fix the schools in Hampton Bays." Oct 6, 16 12:28 PM

Concerned Citizens Of Hampton Bays Study Claims Bel Aire Cove Motel Is Polluting Penny Pond

The Cove Motel should be bought by the Town of Southampton, and then extensively renovated and expanded. It probably won't cost more than $10 million or $20 million to add a state of the art sewage system and a 2nd floor for additional bedrooms. The Town could simply issue.more bonds to pay for it over time. It would be a nice start to our new Housing Authority that is dedicated to bringing affordable low income housing into our communities." Oct 6, 16 7:20 PM

Also, the Town has already purchased 2 beach front properties in Hampton Bays on the ocean. These two properties next to Tiana Beach should be renovated into multi-family low income housing. We could hold a lottery and anyone who qualifies for low income housing could participate. Extensive low income housing projects worked really well for Coney Island -- we could have them here too. Why should only rich people live in oceanfront properties? Are they better than everyone else?" Oct 7, 16 12:55 PM

However, if we are to house low income families in new oceanfront housing developments it becomes imperative to raise Dune Road several feet into the air so that the school buses can pick up the children during full moon high tides -- or perhaps we could buy 2 or 3 hovercraft and jet them across the bay to school bus pick up points closer to the elementary school -- then we could put the hovercraft dock right at the Bel Aire Cove since that will be Town property."

UPDATE: Town Deems 'The Hills' Environmental Impact Statement Complete

$1.5 million each house plus ongoing club revenues. It's probably about a $150 million profit to the developers. Ask the company for their revenue and expense cash flow forecast spreadsheet that they created for their bankers and investors." Oct 11, 16 8:07 AM

Suffolk County Planning Commission Deems Tuckahoe Center Application Incomplete

Handing over zoning changes to developers is like handing over heroin to junkies. As we see with Mr. Trump, they don't pay taxes, "I love depreciation", so it's all gravy. Ask the developer for the revenue and expense cash flow forecast created for the projects bankers and investors." Oct 11, 16 8:10 AM

Local Penalties Are More Severe Than Those Under State Airbnb Law

Yes, but by no means shall we enforce car registration and insurance laws with the same level of attention. After all, there is no way to collect fines from undocumented local residents but tax paying property owners easy to target for fines because they pay. Then we can use this money to build government controlled subsidized housing." Oct 28, 16 2:05 PM

Southampton Town Officials Again Push For Funding To Raise Dune Road

The rich people who live on Dune Road can't be bothered to pay for their local road, the State funding is too restrictive, I know let's get the Federal Government to pay, after all they can just print more dollars, no problem." Oct 28, 16 8:53 PM

Local Penalties Are More Severe Than Those Under State Airbnb Law

Yes, Mr.Thiele, people renting out their spare rooms in a house they own and pay property tax on to make ends meet is clearly a criminal act. Let's fine them even more than $7500, evict them when they fall behind on their tax bill, and foreclose on the home. Then the Town can buy it, renovate it using government funding, and then rent it out at subsidized rates to people the Town considers more worthy of housing." Oct 30, 16 5:20 PM

Shinnecock Gaming Official Pleads Guilty To Hacking Emails, Setting Off Tribal Divisions

Voters To Decide Fate Of CPF Extension And Allocation Toward Water Quality Improvement Projects

What does paying for water quality mean, in the real world? Is this just a slush fund for politicians? If they're so sure that the culprit is phosphates in fertilizer, then just ban phosphates like DDT was banned." Nov 1, 16 8:06 PM

I agree that real estate taxes are not the issue. The issue that concerns me is expansion of local politicians power over a large amount of money with only a vague mandate to "preserve water quality". Simply put, I dont trust a politician, of whatever party affiliation, to resist temptation for the next 35 years." Nov 2, 16 9:30 AM
