Some opposition to proposed farmers market in Southampton

I think the personnel at Schmidt's are mostly pleasant and friendly . . . except for Dennis. What a grump. Is his Porsche Carrera acting up? No wonder he wants less competition and higher prices" Mar 16, 09 10:34 PM

Stop & Shop will open its doors Friday in Hampton Bays

It's amazing that Southampton only has one Waldbaum's and Schmidt's for your basic marketing needs; both are pretty pricey. As retired year round three-day weekenders in Southie, we routinely shop at Costco and Riverhead on our drives in from the city. " Apr 15, 09 8:56 PM

Hampton Maid celebrates 50 years in business

A $34 breakfast plate for two?
What do you get with your eggs for $34? Filet mignon.... champagne.... caviar?
Hampton Maid is a lovely place but not that lovely. " May 27, 09 10:29 AM

I just checked in on all the follow-ups to my comment of 5/27. Thank you BeachGal and LocalTeacher for your agreement and as to fatty2002, trishyk and summertime ... I never said I haven't eaten there! I have eaten there at least five or six times in the past and I the food is okay but not worth the price." Jun 1, 09 9:42 PM

Dunkin' Donuts planned for County Road 39

Good luck to Dunkin' donuts.

For almost 30 years I've lived nearby and seen many, many food/coffee places open and fold here. It seems like a great location, but no one has made it work yet.

I always preferred Dunkin' Donuts coffee over Starbucks anyway, so I wish them luck! M-m-m-m donuts! Doh!" May 25, 10 5:44 PM

LIPA Scrambles To Repair Massive Power Outages

Great comment from watermill mike!

You sound right and very knowledgable and realistic regarding the whole situation.

Far too many folks out here kvetch no matter what; my power came back on last night and I'm just glad it wasn't worse." Aug 30, 11 10:28 PM

The Fresh Market Is Store Interested In Southampton Village Site

Citarella would be terrific! Avanti is a pitiful replacement for the Citarella that was was in Watermill. But for better pricing (if not quality) I'd love to see a new Stop and Shop in town." Nov 23, 11 10:31 AM

Re: earlier references to Whole Foods coming to town; it's not really a supermarket but huge gourmet market. Their stuff is very good but very expensive. The chain is often called Whole Paycheck." Dec 2, 11 10:36 AM

UPDATE: LIPA Says It's On Track For 90 Percent Restored By Wednesday

Electric power, fortunately has been okay for a week now at my place, but no cable tv or internet or telephone. And at the Cablevision store on Hill St. they just give a snotty "service is out all over" response when asked if there are any projections for repair. " Nov 7, 12 12:27 PM
