Offer To Plant Cherry Trees In Agawam Park Withdrawn

Actually, It IS ridiculous...As I see from the rendering above, the trees would have framed the monument wonderfully, and brought significant beauty to the park. Talk about ungrateful. Shame on those who opposed it, for their self-centered narrow-mindedness. All they saw was how they thought it would affect their monument, rather then see how it would benefit the park as a whole. An enhanced park attracts more visitors (Hello...Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC, anyone?!), therefore increasing the amount of people that would come to the park AND see the memorial. This just makes me so, so sad." Apr 26, 11 12:53 PM

Residents Challenge Day Camp Application

Exactly...As Go Blue stated, the proposed structures are well away from the pond. These protests are not about pollution, it's classic NIMBY-ism. There are always going to be people to protest things. Hell, I'm one of them...I was one of the people who protested LIPA's plan to put up huge power line poles on the back roads of Water Mill and Bridgehapton. But this protest really seems to be without merit." Sep 14, 11 3:45 PM

Offer To Plant Cherry Trees In Agawam Park Withdrawn

No one was telling the Village of Southampton what to do, so why would you even phrase your comment that way? An organization made a very generous offer that would have benefited the park, Southampton Village residents, and the thousands of people that visit the park every year (locals or not). In turn, they were told what NOT to do, ie: Thanks but no thanks. It's just sad.
And furthermore, I do enjoy the cherry trees in Water Mill every spring, and that's why I know that many people would have enjoyed them in Southampton Village as well.
And lastly, I find it ironic that you jump to the defense of the "locals" of Southampton Village while residing in Summerfield, Florida." Sep 14, 11 3:52 PM

Fleming, Scalera Win Southampton Board Race; Throne-Holst Reelected

Obbservant: Linda had the job first, did a poor job, and lost it to Anna, fair and square. What else matters?" Nov 9, 11 12:08 AM

Like I said...She did a poor job, and was voted out. The people have spoken...AGAIN" Nov 9, 11 1:37 PM

"Anna campaign operatives are so brimming with unsupported loose slander that are so irrational and illogical which when challenged"

Their signs say it all: People, NOT politics.

She won...Move on." Nov 9, 11 1:40 PM

Iconic Lobster Inn Is Sold, Condos Could Be Future

I don't think anyone in their right mind would argue that someone who started a business, worked hard at it for over 40 YEARS, and then decided to sell his business and retire could be accused of "abusing capitalism." So, let's leave out the Fed, Greenspan, Obama, The Tea Party, and whoever else you want to blame, and just let this man Skip move on to the next chapter of his life and enjoy his retirement without off-base, mean-spirited judgements from the likes of you.
I don't know who you are any more than I know Skip...But you just seem to want to be mad at people. So, go be mad, don't pick fights here. Everyone's entitled to their own opinions, but clear thinking people can see right through your petty sniping.
I'll quote the sign that's posted outside of a business a few miles down the road from the Lobster Inn, in front of Zabi's Liqueur Store: BE NICE." Jan 31, 12 11:47 AM

I like you :)" Jan 31, 12 11:48 AM

Southampton Village Supermarket Law Takes a Pummeling, May See Revisions

So anyone who works a minimum-wage job should just quit their jobs because they are practically worthless in your opinion? Their work has no value? Maybe to you.
But I know quite a few people who work minimum wage jobs...Some are young, and it's their first job...Some are older and have to supplement their fixed income...And some have it as a second job because they need it to get by. I know others who are out of work who would be happy to have any job.
You know what's worse than trying to live on $200/week? Trying to live on $nothing/week." Jan 31, 12 11:54 AM

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

You're quite incorrect...Zaro doesn't have to "produce the perp," all he has to do is prove that it wasn't him. From what I've read, Zaro claims that he was eating at a restaurant in Manhattan when the accident occurred...Should be pretty easy to confirm that, I would think...Between witnesses (companions and employees), and of course credit card receipts, it should be very easy. So, moving swiftly along..." Jul 17, 12 11:33 PM

I have to agree regarding the irony of automatically blocking/removing external links...Given all of the rhetoric and baseless accusations that often go along in these comments sections, I would think that it would be a welcome experience to be able to back up accusations and/or support arguments with (credible) external references. You might want to re-consider that policy, S.H. Press/27 East." Jul 17, 12 11:40 PM

Wainscott Man Arrested For Throwing Traffic Patrol Officer's Ticket Book

You have the right to free speech...But when you speak to another person (cop or otherwise) in a way that can be perceived as menacing or threatening, then that person's right to safety supersedes your right to free speech." Jun 16, 13 8:10 AM

And, based on the verbal assault, and the grabbing and throwing of the ticket book, I'd say that qualifies. Completely rude and disrespectful. Disgusting behavior. I would be ashamed if that man was a member of my family." Jun 16, 13 8:12 AM

Fowl Play: Water Mill Turkey Found With Its Legs Bound

As a longtime Water Mill resident AND animal lover, the news of these cowardly actions taken upon our lovely town mascot saddens me, and shakes my faith in humanity. What kind of human being does this to a creature whose only crime is wandering around our hamlet's green, and occasionally slowing the traffic down a little bit? Some (uneducated and unenlightened) people are quick to dismiss animal cruelty as a petty crime not worthy of mention...But as SusieD mentioned above, animal abusers are indeed likely to move on to abuse children, women, and anyone else less powerful than themselves. And, as unlikely as it may be, I hope the person or people responsible for the disgusting assault on such a beautiful, friendly, inquisitive creature are caught and punished appropriately."

UPDATE: PSEG Will Bury Lines If East Hampton Town Pays

Just so everyone specifically knows what they are commenting on...With regards to the LIPA surcharge to bury the lines in Southamptons/Water Mill/Bridgehampton a few years ago, the surcharge was clearly labeled on the bill (as opposed to rate hikes, that are a totally separate issue), and was a nominal amount, approximately $3-5 dollars/month based on actual usage...Certainly not a "massive" cost." Mar 19, 14 12:48 PM

As a Water Mill resident, I reluctantly supported the LIPA surcharge at the time. Reluctant in that, I would rather not have to pay any surcharge at all...But, when given the choice between seeing huge, metal power lines along the beautiful country back roads of my town, or paying a couple of extra dollars a month to have them buried...I chose to support paying a little bit more to have them buried. And now, several years later, the rate hikes have pissed me off a lot more than the actual surcharge. So, take that for what it's worth!" Mar 19, 14 12:48 PM

Uber Halts Service In East Hampton, Montauk

Who cares how much more the Uber ride is...The rider can get the price before-hand, and decide for themselves if they want to pay the quoted rate. And, what good is a cheaper local cab if you can't get one?! That's why Uber is (was) flourishing out here...Because on Saturday nights, good luck getting a local cab to show up, they're drastically over-booked.

Tesla Installs Charging Stations On County Road 39

Most owners of Electric Vehicles charge their cars at home, overnight, so there is no time impact on their busy lives. These charging stations are to make road trips easier, and Tesla's network of Superchargers are mostly located at highway reststops and/or outside restaurants, specifically so drivers can pull over when the need to eat, go to the bathroom, etc...So, they don't really end up "waiting" since they are inside eating. " May 31, 16 8:27 AM

I agree, that is a very weird comment/quote. I'm guessing he'll change his mind by the end of the summer when he sees how many Tesla families stop by to charge and eat at his restaurant." May 31, 16 8:33 AM
