Plan for seven office buildings proposed in Hampton Bays

I agree that there are areas that need to be fixed up in town however, there are a lot of unused office spaces and retail stores already. We have too many banks, real estate offices, pizza places and chinese food. Lord knows we don't need another nail salon! We don't need anymore chain stores with employees who don't care about the consumer. What we do need are some new ideas to bring some culture and respect back to the hamlet. Heres an idea, how about creating a building where artists can rent space to work and then have a gallery to display the work? What ever happened to our maritime museum? Does anyone else have any new ideas? How about something for the youth of the hamlet, instead of standing in front of the movie theater." Jan 27, 09 9:33 AM

Another noose found hanging in the woods of Sagaponack

Why does the noose have to be a racial thing? What crime has been committed? More crime has been done by the illegal dumpers than a piece of rope.There have been no signs of racism around the noose nor has it been directed at anyone. Maybe its someones sad last plea for help." Jan 27, 09 9:40 AM

Malik your comments are ridiculous without even having any facts. And are you racist? You must be to assume that it is "white teenagers" that have done this. Being that the woods are located next to a "white suburb" maybe it was teenagers of color that did it? It's because of people like you that there is no racial harmony, so quick to point a finger. Maybe point the finger at yourself for causing racial tension with no just cause." Jan 29, 09 6:11 PM

Bad economy forces some migrant workers home

The problem with these immigrants is that they didn't come to this country to embrace it they came here to exploit it and we as a country let it happen. Thats the plain, hard truth. Now that they've had the children born here on our dime, used food stamps to feed their kids meanwhile sending the all mighty dollar out of the country. Now the money well has dried up and off they go laughing all the way to some South American bank. Oh boo hoo for them. Let the Liberals cry all they want. And why is it HEJIRANYC that people are crossburners for speaking their minds. It is our free country to speak so if you don't like it leave with your buddies." Feb 6, 09 5:37 PM

Southampton Town drafts wish list for stimulus funds

Well said Tom from Hampton Bays, I couldn't have said it better myself. As far as North Sea Citizen I agree with you also. I live on a road that is considered private, but only from a certain section on. When I built my house 7 years ago I was forced to pave 500 feet of the road as a condition to get my CO. I pay taxes toward the road but don't get plowed unless there is over 12 inches of snow, no sanding, and only started getting leaf pick up 2 years ago. There is a hill on the road that turns into a sheet of ice that my 4x4 barely gets up so a police car or ambulance would have a hell of a time. I wish the town would continue the program of taking over the roads if we are paying for them." Feb 24, 09 10:34 AM

Stop & Shop will open its doors Friday in Hampton Bays

I've heard from my friend who just got a job at the new Stop & Shop that it is smaller than the one in Riverhead and that they are gearing up for the"Summer Hamptons" crowds and jacked up their prices at least $1 more on products than in the Riverhead store. So I doubt King Kullen will care about competition. Their prices will both be about the same." Apr 15, 09 4:45 PM

An LP gas tank is what you would use for a BBQ or gas stove. Meth lab? Are you really that retarted? You should think before commenting." Jul 21, 09 2:42 PM

Baymen fall to Mt. Sinai in playoffs

Whats more important, football or teaching these kids that their actions have consequences? It sucks for the team but maybe now the kids involved will see that what they do not only effects them but people around them too. It bewilders me that people say the school over reacted. What line do they need to cross before you feel it isn't over reacting? A felony?" Nov 12, 09 3:22 PM

Plan resurfaces to acquire Riverside property

Isn't that parcel part of Riverhead Town? Where is the line between Riverhead/Southampton there? Why isn't Riverhead Town involved since it's their "gateway"?" Nov 20, 09 2:12 PM

Southampton Town planners say new church needs state approval

It was a lawnmower repair shop years ago. It is across from Barboy. Not really a good location." Nov 25, 09 5:43 PM

Southampton Town analyst says proposed wind turbine would harm environment

Myths about birds: Turbines kill: Today, turbines are built larger and more efficiently, and as a consequence, they rotate much more slowly than earlier versions. Even Audubon supports the development and use of wind power.

A bird will collide with a given wind machine about once every 8-15 years; higher incidences may occur in locations with large concentrations of waterfowl or in areas of high migration

Each year, an estimated 57 million birds dies in collisions with vehicles, 1.25 million in collisions with tall structures (buildings, towers), and 97.5 million in collisions with plate glass.


Remember people this in not a giant turbine like that used in wind farms. What does more damage to the enviroment...a 32' high wind turbine or a 32' McMansion?" Dec 24, 09 10:28 AM

East Hampton Town harbormaster arrested for marijuana possession

Sounds to me like this poor guy was set up. When is this country going to wake up and smell the weed? You can drive drunk numerous times before jail is even in the picture and this guy is probably going to lose his pension over a bag of weed. Something that should have been legalized years ago, our police, courts and prisons are over run with B.S. arrests. You want to see the economy bounce back? Legalize it and tax it and the money will flow and free the burden to taxpayers paying for three hots and a cot for the people serving jail terms for pot . I would be willing to bet that "smokers" are no longer the minority but the majority." Jan 5, 10 4:07 PM

Funbeer, You either have an addictive personality or you don't. Over eating is an addictive behavior and thats huge in this country.Obviously people can get it very easily anyways so why not have it taxed and regulated.If people do some research you will find that places where it is legal has actually had a drop in drug addiction and drug related crimes. And it should be used in moderation just like alcohol. If cigarettes are legal, which is one of the leading causes of death in this country, why not make something legal that also has medicinal values? For all the other comments here against it....yes I am a parent and I am not a pothead for thinking it should be legalized...I just think it is a stupid law that is costing John Q public a lot of money to enforce and prosecute."

Funbeer, I want to be clear that my statement was not directed at you, it was meant to be a general statement and if it was not received as such I apoloogize." Jan 6, 10 7:41 AM

If it was legalized there would be no need to import it from anywhere and instead of growing it in national parks the farmers that have been struggling for years would have a viable crop." Jan 6, 10 7:49 AM

The Fate of the Canoe Place Inn still hangs in the balance

Bottom line is they own the properties and should be allowed to do anything they want within the current zoning. The CPI and surrounding boarded up cottages are an eyesore and potential drug houses if they are not already. Don't give them more than the zoning allowed when they purchased the property and be done with it.." Oct 24, 10 12:40 PM

Cupsogue Beach Remains Closed Even Though Sharks Are Gone

They are basking sharks that show up every year when the water starts to warm up causing the plankton to hatch. Its still good to keep the water closed while they feed so some moron doesn't go and mess with them. " Jun 1, 11 8:33 AM
