Elected Officials Address Concerns Over Hampton Bays Homeless Shelter

OK First of all if you can tell me where you can get an acre for less than 400.000 on Tiana Bay please let me know I'm headed for the bank. When is the last time you have been to Tiana? There are three properties at the beginning of the road that are debilated I agree. And then right next to them are beautiful waterfront homes on canals with docking. Across the street are a row of colonials on a hill with views across the bay. Further down is Romana Rd, a beatiful waterfront rd with million dollar homes. Down a bit the other way are more million dollar homes on the canals and then off to their beach club. The rest of the neighborhood are mostly the primary and second homes of families mostly updated and renovated ranches and capes. That reminds you somehow of Mastic? " Nov 29, 11 8:55 AM

Town Will Go To Court, If Necessary, To Stop Homeless Shelter At Hampton Bays Motel

Just a question. What about the family whose home loses value because you decided to put a shelter literally next door to their home? What about the family who once enjoyed a quiet neighborhood, who struggled and sacrificed to buy a home in Southampton town to provide a quality of life for their children? It is so easy for you all to speak in platitudes, and leave out the other side of the equation. I donate time and treasure to help out those who are less fortunate than I ( I wonder how many of you all actually do from your lofty pedastals). But don't you dare judge us for trying to protect and preserve waht is ours and what we have worked so hard to keep. If your worried about the homeless donate your time or $ to organizations like Maureens Haven or your local food pantry. Don't sit on a comments page and paint concerned homeownwers as villians.

You are so wrong. Again with the platitudes! Your average homeless shelter is not widows and orphans wake up! How can you honestly say having a homeless shelter next to your home won't affect it. So a drug addict with a criminal past you feel bad for but not the family,two parents working making month to month. Are you serious? I guess just leave us out of the equation because we don't matter at all. So the homeless get a waterfront home and the rich get to decide where to put it. And us in the middle working class better just be quiet about it or we are heartless ok." Dec 4, 11 9:29 PM

Property values aren't going to be lowered because county is making this a homeless shelter. Absurd statement. People who live in funky hotel rooms are for all intents and purposes are homeless. Another absurd statement. I'm sure the people down the road who bought co op apts in a very similar building would love to know that. From real experience, not your two minute drive by and assessment, I can tell you for the most part that property housed mostly single young and middle age working men with service trucks, painting, plumbing, etc. That is a FAR cry from housing 30 families. Please don't attempt to compare the two. My point is the posters here are so quick to judge the residents of the area for their objections. I think any resident who would stand by without an objection is crazy. Sneidermann pointed out that these type of housing establishments should not provide housing for more than twelve families at a time. Why do you think that law is on the books. Because housing 30 families in an effiecency motel has no effect on a community? Why do the residents of Tiana Shores have to come up with a solution to Western Suffolk's homeless problem? I do my part to help local families. I don't need another chance to refute your statements, or solve Suffolk County's homeless problem. Ask yourself if this was next door to your home, you wouldn't be concerned? " Dec 5, 11 11:44 AM

Well not all of us can afford to live in Watermill, some of us have to reside in, how did you put it, the mastics of the Hamptons? " Dec 5, 11 12:25 PM

Residents Turn Out To Protest Overcrowding In Springs

It disturbs you that he pointed out that these programs cost taxpayers a lot of money? Or that money is being taken away from other programs? Or maybe overcrowded rental homes that have illegal non citizens living in them don't add much to the taxes that fund thee programs? There is a difference between prejudice and facts. The district and town will suffer if the issues are ignored for fear of being called a racist." Mar 9, 12 1:42 PM

Southampton Students Wear Hoodies To Honor Trayvon Martin

I read his "tweets" and saw his pictures. (Not the ones on picture day in elementary school). He may not of been a thug but he certainly went to great lengths to appear as one through his dress and language. I don't know if Zimmerman acted in self defense, neither do you. On another note, students are now allowed to walk around INSIDE a school with their hoods on? Now that's progressive!" May 7, 12 8:10 PM

School Results: Tuckahoe Is Only District On South Fork To Reject Proposed 2012-13 Budget

Teachers are actually working for five hours of a day. That's not including preps and lunch. Do they take work home? Some do. Do they come/stay early/late? Some do, most don't. I have worked in five different districts and have seen it myself. Teachers on LI are highly compensated for their work, veteran teachers are ridiculously compensated for their work. If you choose to live off other peoples' hardwork/ taxes, don't complain if you are scrutinized or laid off when people's funds begin to run dry. That's the trade off." May 17, 12 9:45 AM

Public schools are infinitely better funded than private schools and private schools consistently outperform public schools. More spending is not the answer, better spending is. Check the classifieds, private schools are only hiring certified teachers for their staffs. Their salaries are lower, their benefit packages are less but their kids do better. Overcompensation does not make better teachers. " May 17, 12 9:58 AM

Where did he go to college? What does that matter? Bush went to Yale, Obama went to Harvard. Look at the mess we are in. Look at the college misfits at Occupy. I' m 6 credits away from my masters, how would that qualify me more to run for office? Sorry, but that 's a dumb question.
