Former Westhampton missile base boasts rich history

"G" - you hit the nail directly on the head ! It seems whenever politicians or County officials ( same thing! ) get invilved there is a built in 'slop' factor where the project is mismanaged and money is diverted to "friends" or contributors. Thanks for your perspective, we nedd to keep the crooks somewhat honest, if that's possible." Feb 15, 09 8:32 AM

Elyse, You are 100 % correct in your assumption that the plume may have originated from the old BOMARC base, look at the mess from the old fuel depot at Gabreski - the people on Peters Lane all had to be converted to county water, and I doubt that the plume was ever totally cleaned up, since the government was once again investigating itself!

Lefty, you once again missed the point - it doesn't matter one bit who was there first, it matters a great deal that the airbase contaminated the groundwater in the area, possibly for a very long time. Try to keep up Lefty!" Feb 15, 09 8:43 AM

Southampton Town Comptroller charged with DWI

I'm willing to bet that on any given friday or saturday night at least half of the drivers on the road are driving under the influence of something - it doesn't make it right - it's just a fact and it's kinda scary - the problem is everyone does it - have a couple of drinks at a restaurant with dinner and you are now DUI. What's the solution?" Mar 21, 09 5:44 AM

Bridgehampton teenager killed in Saturday crash

Alot of comments on here say everything happens for a reason, though sometimes that reason is not easy to see - when you are 16 you seem invincible and have your whole life ahead of you - and then a simple thing like worn tires changes everything! ( if that was the cause) My point is - Cherish each day and your friends - show them how much they mean to you - tomorrow is not a guarantee. RIP young man." Apr 16, 09 7:20 AM

Quogue women say they were mistakenly doused by Suffolk County Vector Control truck

Hold on just a minute, To all these morons putting down this woman - may I just ask what was she supposed to do? She is out for a nice walk on a beautiful street with her two young boys and here comes a truck spraying chemicals ! Where exactly is she supposed to go? Is she supposed to run away, Is she supposed to run into a stranger's yard and seek shelter? Seems to me the moron in this case is the dope behind the wheel of the truck - probably laughed at them or just didn't give a crap! Real nice !" Sep 5, 09 3:05 PM

Town code enforcement again raids Westhampton home owned by Kabot's aunt

It seems like the real problem is that the first round of fines did not deter this slumlord from continuing to operate as business as usual, perhaps the fines should be increased to where they are more meaningful to the owner, something more than 1 month rent !!" Nov 16, 09 1:09 PM
