Plan for seven office buildings proposed in Hampton Bays

Dr Spock, I am not in favor of most development in our Hamlet, But am curious why so many of us resist the luxury time share ? It seems well planed out and surly would bring in a better element than CPI... not to mention the local boost to our stores and restaurants. Don't be so closed minded we are going to grow, The trick is to attract the right kind of projects and rid ourself of the trash. I remember the laughter before the star bucks came to town. Many people said no one will ever pay 5 bucks for a cup of coffee in this town! Well its been 4 years and I believe that pig flew rather well." Feb 2, 09 3:11 AM

A day of unity and celebration

PStevens....You will blame bush for the next 16 years, I was here in town the day the buildings fell. I remember how It felt. President Pelosi has obviously forgotton... GW might not have been perfect but he shut the islamic extremists down for 8 long years. Lets hope Barack Hussein Obama knows what to do after Netanyahu drops a few MOAB blasts at the little nit wit Ahmadinejad in Iran. When Putin steps up to defend the terrorists what will our Politically Correct half a socialist leader do then? Lets pray to God, Jesus and Allah! He has a clue." Feb 2, 09 7:33 PM

The legacy of William Bottomley lives on, but for how long?

bb you need to get out a little more.The CPI is nothing more than a magnet for bringing people with no class into this town. It has been this way for at least 20 years now.Frankly we could use a little more luxury and a little less vagrancy around here. I would like to see a little more East Hampton and a little less Riverhead for the future of this very special place. You are living in the past. Its 2009 not 1947, Put down your coffee table book and make some decisions for this town that will help it ...develope ( oh sorry I said a bad word)in a good way." Mar 8, 09 2:17 PM

Poor economy exacerbates persistent East End tension over immigration

Aaah The Quandary of the left wing talking points....Stick up for the poor Illegals or stick up for the unions ??? Very Amusing Is it not. Almost as hypocritical as Anti War / Pro Abortion. " May 5, 09 12:26 AM

hey faceless... you seem to have a problem with capitalism. no one told them to come here and sleep in the woods. If we hired workers at prevailing wage to rake leaves this country would go broke.And I challenge you to run an add In the paper for one of these thankless jobs and see how many Americans show up for anything less. Tell me what is wrong with giving out work visas to anyone who wants one.Let them pay taxes and get drivers licenses.No green cards or citizenship! They would have to return home for 2 months a year. Then we would know who is in the country and could hold them responsible for crimes. If they mess up they would be banned for life.after a ten year probation if they still want the become American citizens they could take the test like all of our relatives did at some point in the past. Then Government should get out of the way and let the free market work." May 6, 09 9:00 PM

Riverhead man stabbed to death in front of Hampton Bays Diner

Butts was BLACK, Not Hispanic, Almost all 15 were Black.... I was at the light going to work when It happened.Hispanics had nothing to do with It! show me a Hispanic over 30 that is not working and I bet he is at church or doing his laundry, And the bad Hispanics, all of which are under 30 learned their bad behavior from the Blacks in the USA.When are we going to stop making excuses for these criminals.If i was a hard working person of color I would be even more pissed off that these gang banging rapers were giving me a bad name. When is enough enough. I am sick of pretending these raciest animals are just misunderstood. BS.This time beach girl is right.The dinner has put one over on the town. They have taken advantage of a loop hole in the law. That back room was never intended to be a hip hop club. It was supposed to be a room for party's. When the town tried to shut it down. Mr Valdamas pulled the race card and S.H. buckled to this low class garbage that seems to have taken over our town. Mr Valdamas your sign says Dinner! Not after hours club" May 26, 09 10:27 PM

David wrote... "The town is on the edge of tipping either way--towards the higher end classy Hamptons or the slums of Flanders". And I thought it was worth repeating. Let the million dollar timeshare come in and level C P I , Its not what we remember It to be, Just drive by and take a look at the line to get in one night. And how about a international house of pancakes to replace the Dinner. one more thought lets stop busing our kids from Red Creek to Riverhead High School.Hampton bays has more water than any other Hampton it could be the jewel of the east end." May 27, 09 10:05 PM

little plains, Its not people of color we are objecting to, It is gang banging, racist,foul mouth,trash. The thug from publick house would fit that description and my guess is so would you. I new the corrections officer and his family.The poor man was trying to save money be moonlighting to take his wonderful family on a well deserved vacation.So be a little more respectful. His wife is a lovely lady who still lives here in town and reads this paper!" May 27, 09 10:25 PM

Little plains.... People who work at the diner claim 15 black men came in through the back room.Then at closing filtered into the front with the rest of the crowd.It seems they were on a mission to hunt down Mr Butts. Why is still being investigated. Some said they over heard something about an altercation at a different club.Some said Mr. Butts smashed a bottle of Hennessey over a gang members head. I have heard this from a friend who is S.H.P.D and was part of the call to respond. All of this is hear say. There are a lot of strange people that work at the diner and rumors were flying.In any event what ever he did was enough to piss off 15 gang members from somewhere outside of Hampton bays.Then he lead them here to the after hours club...Uh I mean Diner. Like i said its not about the color of your skin Its about the lifestyle you lead.It just so happens that the following all have gun charges and felonies 50 cent, snoop,Kanye West,Beanie Sigel,Jay Z,Tupac Shakur,Lil Kim,P Diddy,Dmx,Shyne,Akon,Twisted Black,Chris Brown,TI,Da Brat,Pimp C,Corey Miller,ODB,C-Murder,Mystikal,Slick Rick,Master P,And the list goes on and on.If i was a law abiding AA, I would be the first one to condemn this gangsta rap and all the pain it projects on our community's.I Mean Come On! you defend this garbage.The music made what happened Sat Cool....And The Diner Gave It a venue in witch it could be played out." May 28, 09 10:05 PM

The article in the Independent May 27 2009,Printed according to police reports the the incident was gang related, It also says.. The owner of the diner himself Mr Vlahadamis said , And I quote "A gang of 20 were involved all attacking one fellow. All of those Involved in the attack said Vlahadamis were black" Maria Vlahadamis said " the diner's bar which caters to a Latino crowd, has not been an issue.but this was a different element"" May 29, 09 10:02 PM

Stop playing, How hypocritical your name is....you say you know the whole story but yet you will not set the record straight???? Why?" Jun 1, 09 9:57 PM

How did he go to sleep...I guess he just cranked up the latest ONYX cd so he could not hear his conscience anymore" Jun 1, 09 11:33 PM

ME09 I was not looking at color ...What I was looking at was the lyrics, They glamorize killing. As well as stealing , beating females,gang culture,abortion,and general disrespect for anything descent. I invite anyone to goggle Onyx lyrics... you may be shocked how similar they are to the events we have seen lately in our town.Its not about color Its about ignorance.The Ideas the music they play at the clubs promotes has no place on our streets."

Shinnecock Indian Nation wins preliminary federal recognition

It seems to me gabreski airport is the most logical place to put a high quality gaming facility" Dec 16, 09 2:36 AM

" Dec 16, 09 3:47 AM

If placed at the Gabreski airport it could add an exciting winter destination for all of us "board out of our mind" full time residents. But it must be done the right way, Mohegan sun for example is a beautiful place to shop, Enjoy a top quality meal and maybe see a show. If you bet with you head and not over it the gambling is not a problem. Like everything else in life it just comes down to personal responsibility. I do believe West Woods is not the right location due to the residential displacement that would have to be done, But Ill tell you what I do find interesting. People I have talked to up at the town do not seem as appalled at the thought of It ending up at West Woods as they do the Reservation it self. It seems to be the trend to dump every thing here in Hampton Bays...Llike the proposed government Buildings at Red creek. I am getting a little sick of the "West of the canal prejudice" Hampton Bays has more water and beauty than any other Hampton and a much easier drive back to the city. I still feel H.B. is way under rated. Maybe if we secede from the Riverhead school district and clean up Flanders She could shine like the jewel she once was." Dec 17, 09 11:17 AM

East Hampton Town harbormaster arrested for marijuana possession

Speaking on The Tony Kornheiser Show Friday, Carville laid out, or unzipped, his vision for airport security.
It seems the debate over full body security scans just got a lot more graphic, thanks to the Democratic political strategist and frequent flyer . Carville said: This is not good, Airport scanners can 'measure my penis'

Maybe we should start scanning town workers before they start their shift!

Former Southampton Supervisor Linda Kabot writes to state comptroller about maladministration

year rounder hear are a few more facts you may not want to hear

A year into his tenure, a majority of Americans would already vote against Pres. Obama if the '12 elections were held today, according to a new survey.

The Allstate/National Journal Heartland Monitor poll shows 50% say they would probably or definitely vote for someone else. Fully 37% say they would definitely cast a ballot against Obama. Meanwhile, just 39% would vote to re-elect the pres. to a 2nd term, and only 23% say they definitely would do so.

Obama's first year in office has been marked by an unemployment rate that surged to 10%, an increased commitment of troops to Afghanistan and a health care battle that has taken a serious political toll on the WH.

Obama's approval rating is down to 47%, the poll showed, a 14-point drop since the April survey.
