Southampton Town analyst says proposed wind turbine would harm environment

These people should have the right to appeal the town's decision to the state level. lets see if the DEC agrees with this jerkoffs assessment." Dec 30, 09 9:47 PM

Shinnecocks are looking at benefits that come with federal recognition

Many others are alcoholics, career criminals, etc... This reservation is small compared to reserations elsewhere in the country that are as big as some states. There is no reason these people can't take care of themselves. The children have always attended our schools. I do not belive that we owe peole for things that happened 200 years ago. That is more than enough time to better yourselves instead of looking for handouts and making excuses." Jan 3, 10 10:38 AM

Whenever someone doesn'r agrre with a liberal, you label them ignorant. mybe you should get your head our of your ass and look ar reality for once." Jan 3, 10 10:40 AM

Will a casino really benefit all of the Shinnecock Nation? I think not. The people that the tribal leaders have partnered with have only their own monetary interests at heart. They will bleed the majority of any casino revenues away from the Shinnecock nation. The question is what will the tribal leaders do with their share of the casino revenues? Will these funds be used for the betterment of all nation members? What good will having a casino hundreds of miles away do for the employment situation. The Casino should be built on Shinnecock Nation land so all nation members will have an opportunity for gainful employment. Revenues gained should be used for improving the infrastructure on the reservation so all members may share in the bounty. I'm afraid that your current tribal leadership only have their own interests at heart, not those of the entire reservation population." Jan 3, 10 11:01 AM

Southampton Town Board closes out old capital projects

Why is there even a $6 million deficit. There should be a zero defecit if they truly knew how to budget." Jan 3, 10 11:04 AM

Tuckahoe overhaul petition effort revived by former board member

It is ridiculous to have only a three member board that has all that power to decide things. It only takes two members to collude and pust through their agendas. Most school boards in the state are nime members to avoid abuse of power." Mar 19, 10 11:46 AM

Southampton High School seeks upgrades for planetarium, envisions opening to public

The school district made a huge mistake when building the high school. At the time they had a choice between an indoor swimming pool or the planetarium. A swimming pool would have benefited more students and district residents than the planetarium. Now to thro millions more to renovate it while school budgets need to be reduced is not the best idea."

Southampton Town residents express opinions on leaf pick-up program

Thats hogwash that senior citizens cannot put leaves into a paperbag! Out town has had this program for 15 years where leaves are either placed in paperbags or into 30 gallon garbage cans. Once a week, the garbage trucks come by and pick up the yard waste. Funny how senior citizens in our town, which is bigger than Southamton, have no problem complying with this." Apr 5, 10 8:33 PM

Sag Harbor School District asks entire staff to consider pay freeze

There are way too many teachsrs. Class sizes should be increased from the current 12 - 15 per class to 20-25 per class. Some of the numerous electives need to be gotten rid of. The emphasis in school should be on the core subjects. The taxpayers can no longer afford to pay for the excesses that have beuilt up in schools over the past 20 years." Apr 5, 10 8:39 PM

Shinnecocks clear last hurdle; recognition expected by July

Congratulations to the Shinnecock nation. Beare of those who seek to finance you, they only have their interests at heart! They will rob you blind and the only people maiking money off the casino deal will be the tribal elders and the management formed hired to run the casino. Shinnecocks, get rid of your esisting tribal council. Bring back Lance Gumbs, at least he cares about the tribal members!" Apr 5, 10 8:50 PM

Stony Brook University will announce drastic cuts to Stony Brook Southampton

This campus would be the perfect place for the Sinnecock Nation's casino. Located between the two highways would help the traffic flow. Shinnecock Nation residents would be close enough to actually be employed at the casino and benfit from it. The land probably belongs to the Shinnecock's anyways." Apr 6, 10 9:20 PM

Math program at heart of turmoil in Tuckahoe

As a former student of Tuckahoe school, I am appaleed at the arrogance of this school board. It now appears that the school board's decision was soley based on personal reasons. The voters in tuckahoe need to demand a UFSD so their is a larger and more accountable board where one person can not rule with their own personal agenda. Ms. Grindle should be fired for her lack of ethics in this matter!" Apr 6, 10 9:26 PM

It is evident that your child was one of those who can't cut the mustard! the school board needs to consist of nine members so your friends can not dictate policy based on their own personal issues. Those board members should have reclused themselves due to a conflict of interest. I'm rather surprised that they are not being sued!" Apr 6, 10 9:33 PM

Why don't they have core subjects everyday? What is wrong with this school?" Apr 6, 10 9:35 PM

This Superintendant is hand picked by the board members who should no longer be board members. The bottom line is the school board needs to be nine members. This three member board reminds me of the disfunction in Albany where the three men in a box (Governor, Senate majority Leader, and Assembly majority Leader) decide our state budget evry year. Look where that has gotten the state. You have the same situation at Tuckahoe. I used to be a proud graduate of Tuckahoe. How the hell did it ever get this bad?" Apr 6, 10 9:40 PM

Hard to believe that you of all people are willing to trample the right of free speech!" Apr 6, 10 9:42 PM

Maybe not a coincidence that a board members kids were both valedictorians!" Apr 6, 10 9:46 PM

No school baord should be allowed to have so few members. This practice puts all the power into the hands of two people. I magine if the US Supreme Court had only three members?" Apr 6, 10 9:52 PM

Southampton School District continues to trim budget gap

Time to make the hard decisions. Teachers need to be cut as salaries and benefits are the majority of any school budget. Increase class sizes, cut back on sports programs if needed. Academics should always be the first priority." Apr 6, 10 10:00 PM

Health care reform bill gets mixed reviews on East End

All I can say is you clowns elected him!!!! " Apr 6, 10 10:04 PM

Southampton School Board suspends high school principal and assistant principal, who are then hired by East Hampton

And I thought the Tuckahoe School Board was corrupt! Exactly what is wrong with someone interviewing for a job that doesn't start until the next school year? The Superintendent should be ashamed of himself as well as the school board. Their actions are highly unprofessional and most likely illegal." May 21, 10 9:05 PM

Two students hospitalized after Route 114 crash

How can there be no tickets issued. The truck rear ended the car. " Jun 2, 10 3:19 PM

It doesn't matter if the car was stopped dead in the roadway. The vehicle behind has an obligation to stop! The truck driver should be ticketed for reckless driving at a minimum. It is alo possible that he was speeding and couldn't stop in time. That would be another ticket. The truck driver must know someone or he would have been ticketed!" Jun 2, 10 3:25 PM

Schmidt's Market celebrates 30 years in business

When I used to shop there years ago, the produce was two times as much as you could get elsewhere. This place is only in business due to the mentality of the summer hamptonites who think thery are not getting a deal unless it is high priced." Jun 5, 10 4:01 PM

Vice President Biden visits Southampton over holiday weekend

Who gives a damn about Joe Biden? He is one of the last far left wing liberals after Kennedy died. It will be good to see him and Obama thrown out of White House!" Jun 5, 10 4:05 PM

Mattituck woman gets 6-month sentence for DWI accident that killed Hampton Bays boy

She must be politically connected. I don't buy the prosecutor's argument. If she were not drunk, she could have swerved or braked to avoid hitting the boy! This was a slam dunk case and the prosecutor should be fired!" Jun 17, 10 7:16 PM

Calabro casino talks progress

The shinnecock nation should say the hell with Southampton town officials and build their casino on their land in Hampton Bays. better yet, build it on their reservation near Montauck Highway. The state will not let them build it within 35 miles of Aqueduct because it will cut into the states profits from the racino to be built there. The next best place for a casino is the Hamptons! Whats a matter, all thoose rich wall street and hollywood types who have taken control of the Hamptons now don't want the native american casino in their backyard! " Jun 17, 10 7:26 PM

Politics as usual in Southampton!" Jun 17, 10 7:29 PM
