Latest Round Of Changes To Immigration Rules Heighten Hassles For Business

Why use imigrants at all? Most are undocumented (illegal) and should be kicked out of this country. Bisness owners that emloye them should forfeit their businesses if caught. There is plenty of ceap labor available to do those jobs. The government should make all those on welfare and unemployment do these jobs to earn their free taxpayer money." Apr 29, 12 10:20 AM

Since when do any of you decide what is appropriate for this board postings? As long as the comments are related to the story the postings should be allowed. If you want to post condolences only, they have a place for that. You need to post to funeral home area." May 4, 12 10:38 AM

Southampton Boy Will Be Allowed To Play Field Hockey Next Season

If girls are allowed to play on Boy's sport teams, then boys should be allowed to play on girls sport teams. How about doing away with boys and girls teams and having one unisex team for every sport." May 15, 12 6:59 PM

Tuckahoe Common School's Budget Voted Down; Steudte Takes Grindle's Seat

The taxpayers in the Tuckahoe District sent a message to the school board that they can no longer afford the taxes required for a top notch eductaion. I'm sure the $300,000 can be found in administrator salaries rather than teacher salaries. Maybe the school board will be more careful in negotiating teacher contracts in the future. The bulk of the budget is employee salaries and benefits, it is time they start paying more for their healthcare and freeze the salaries." May 22, 12 1:34 PM

Most school districts in this state now utilize a Top 10% of the class as a symbol of academic achivements. This is due to students not taking the same rigorous courses as others and situations where a Salutatorian may have had more honors and AP classes than the Valedictorian. Their have been several lawsuits over this issues in other school districts." May 30, 12 1:38 PM

Federal Court Tosses Injunction Preventing Shinnecocks From Building Hampton Bays Casino

All you NIMBY idiots amke me sick with your tree hugging sensibilities! You are the ones who have ruined the hamptons. Decades ago, the hamptons were plush with farms. You didn't care when you built your million dollar homes on developments carved from these farmlands. Traffic has always been an issue. As a child, I can remember standing on an overpass over north highway waving goodbye to all you summer residents on labor day. We were glad to finally have our beautiful community back again. I'm sure the feelings haven't changed amongst those who have been born and bred in the hamptons. You do not have the right to decide where a casino is to be built by the original landowners. The shinnecocks should build their casino on the lands occupied by the college. Tow highways would provide access. As for the traffic, tough! We had to put up with traffic caused by you summer residents, now you will have to put up with traffic from the casino." Jul 10, 12 11:05 AM

Police Investigate Shots Fired From Shinnecock Reservation

Boycotting the Pow Wow would only harm the 99% of the trbal mebers who obey the law. Lance Gumbs should be held to task by the police since he has lied in the past about it being fireworks, not gunfire. Lance Gumbs knows who the shooters are and as a tribal leader should intervene and stop this before it becomes deadly." Jul 31, 12 4:16 PM

Beach Rebuilding Project Will Go To Voters In Affected Areas Of Oceanfront Southampton Town

There are always expenditures in a budget that some people don't benefit from. The fact that the homeowenrs and businesses benefiting from this project will directly pay 89%. The other 11% will be spread over all taxpayers in the town. That seems fair, I'm sure that there are at least 11% of the current budget items that these people could do without. Why haven't they tried to get federal assiatance with this project?" Sep 6, 12 9:50 AM

Southampton Town Housing Lottery Brings Smiles And Some Tears

Really? Taxpayers are subsidizing upper middle class family housing? This program is worse than the NYC rent control and subsidies. If you can't afford to live on $80,000 per year, then move. Most people could live on that income everywhere in the country. How can hosuing in ghettos like Flanders be that expensive? Who the hell wants to live there, prices should reflect that. Housing in the hamptns is way overpriced, it is time for a market correction. This wil never happen as long as loacl governments have programs that subsidize upper middle class income brackets. I was born and raised in Shinnecock Hills. I've often thought of returning some day but property values are way out of line. I can get a better paying job and three times the house for the money I'd pay to live in the hamptons. The Hollywood and Wallstreet types have taken over and ruined what used to be a nice affordable pace to live!" Sep 20, 12 9:46 PM

Controversial Movie Spurs Protest At Southampton High School

Inclusive communities should not include llegal aliens. The politically correct are the ones that have brought this country to its knees. A factual film showing the true cost of illegal immigration was being shown to educate the public. The politically correct protest because they can't stand it whenever somone doesn't agree with their ideology. " Oct 6, 12 11:45 PM

Tuckahoe And Southampton School Districts Seek Merger Study

Is there really a large disparity between the quality of eduaction at Southampton HS versus Westhampton Beach HS? I'll bet if you look at actual numbers, such as SAT scores, you won't see much difference! Maybe Tuckahoe should consider building its own High School." Oct 20, 12 10:28 PM

Southampton High School To Reopen Upgraded Planetarium To Public On November 1

The planetarium never should have been built in the first place. How many students each year take astronomy? How many are getting full-time use from it? It is not cost effective and taxpayer money could have been better used for other areas.

LaValle, Fleming Debate Issues In East Hampton

As usuual another person whose beliefs are based on what the liberal media feeds them. Obama may have accidently been in office when Bin laden was taken down, but he had three previous opportunities that never were acted upon in time due to his indecisiveness. The only two area that really matter inm this election are the economy and forign policy. Why do liberals keep bring up gay tights and womaen's rights? While those area may be important to some, they shouldn't even factor in the direction this country will be headed. If Obama is elected, the economy will be ruined for decades due to his health care program. Obama's forign policy has severly weakened this county. All he does in want to appologize for the United States having strength. He is a muslim that favors muslim opinions around the world. Obama has done nothing in office but destrot this country's future with his socialistits beliefs. Romney is no prize, but I would vote for Mickey Mouse over Obama in this election."
