East Hampton Begins Debate About Spending Millions On FAA Application To Restrict Flights

Why not make the road to the airport a toll road with a $100 toll? That would cut down on traffic." Sep 20, 17 12:04 AM

County Legislator Bridget Fleming Hears Riders On Car Free Day On Friday

Can someone lob a call into Google, waymo or Uber and see if we can get self driving cars on the right of way next to the failed LIRR -- they'd all love to have their non unionized, self driving transport solution access our community." Sep 24, 17 4:29 PM

Plans For Hampton Bays Diner Building Are Moving Forward

Hopefully it can be turned into something really ugly like the transformation of the Coast Guard Station. That hideous steel tower that is completely useless and the new white plastic boxes going up -- yes we really know how to make a town unattractive. Port a potty right in front to begin with would good start." Oct 4, 17 6:46 PM

Yeah that Coast Guard Station really gives us a great bang doe our tax dollars. A huge steel tower for "distressed" boaters that was obsolete before it was built for $4 million since everyone has a cell or satellite phone and big white boxes for what exactly. Start questioning your idiotic government before you knee jerk comment." Oct 5, 17 12:51 PM

UPDATE: Public Hearing On 'The Hills' Postponed To November 13

I'm confused. Is Superintendent Schneiderman for The Hills or not? Is there any legal reason for him to not go on record as to how he will vote on this zoning variance?" Oct 19, 17 5:39 PM

The "as of" right development, if The Hills is not granted a zoning variance, will never be built. There is no financial method for supplying construction capital for fout hundred 5 acre homes. It simply won't be able to finance. The CPF will buy the land, just like it bought the Lobster Inn property when the adjacent strip mall development was denied." Oct 19, 17 5:44 PM

Zeldin Met With Pence On Tuesday To Discuss Tax Reform Bill

Here's the conversation that took place:
Pence:. You'll do as you're told or you'll never work again.
Zeldin:. Yes sir." Oct 31, 17 3:48 PM

Dr. Gobler Includes Fertigation In Updated Environmental Report On 'The Hills'

The Honorable Jay Schneiderman lost my vote with his reply to a direct question on this matter at the Hampton Bays Civic Association meeting. He "ran out of time" before he could reply yes or no. Ms. LOFSTAD was wonderful, passionate and positive in her conviction that preserving our environment and our community is the right thing to do. I'm voting for Julie LOFSTAD and anyone who supports her. That includes Mr. Schiavoni and write in candidate Fred Havemeyer." Nov 1, 17 3:41 PM

Jay tipped us off at the Hampton Bays Civic Association meeting. The OBI East redevelopment will be stopped in January because they had to begin substantial development within 3 years and did not so the zoning variance will lapse. Similarly, the Town could vote this zoning variance down, and then get the lawsuits to do the ditry work of stopping the "as of right" development. Eventually, the CPF will buy this acreage and the environment will be spared any nitrogen poisoning." Nov 1, 17 9:43 PM

If only we could build more 18 hole golf courses with thousands of condos bathrooms dumping nitrogen and phosphorus into our water -- then we'll be much better off. And don't forget that we need to practice putting out fires at these developments, please don't spare the fire retardant foam!" Nov 2, 17 9:20 AM

Very big words. Almost distracts from the fact that injecting massive additional amounts of fertilizer into our drinking water is a terrible idea." Nov 3, 17 6:48 AM

Developer Files Pre-Application For 137-Unit Subdivision In East Quogue, Backup Plan To 'Hills'

Oooo, look what I found on your property, Mr. Hissey FitzSoreLoser, a rare Eastern Tiger Salamander. I think we have to study this new development for about 3 years before we go over your "as of right" development." Nov 10, 17 11:03 PM

No I went to Trump University, shortly before it was shut down for fraud and spent $25 million to settle with students who were ripped off by its namesake." Nov 11, 17 9:13 PM

Maybe we should put an Eruv around the site. Then all the pro-development Hissy Fitters will turn against this plan to inject massive amounts of fertilizer into our drinking water." Nov 12, 17 8:13 AM

"elected officials" being the operative phrase. The people have spoken -- we want to preserve the property and avoid having massive amounts of fertilizer injected into our drinking water." Nov 12, 17 12:13 PM

Town Still Working To Secure Funds For Public Bathrooms At Good Ground Park

$600,000. Are they building a 20,000 square foot 6 bedroom, 6 bathroom house with a chef's kichen and a pool? That would require a septic system. Yes, an investigation is in order." Nov 15, 17 1:22 PM

Discovery Land May Have Other Paths To Golf Course In East Quogue; Supervisor Pitches Public Access

They would have used this ruse like a dog on a pork chop -- well said sir. Hopefully, DLC will be discouraged enough by our elected officials to want to fold up their tent and vamoose it back to Arizona. They can buy each other drinks at the Dune Deck and play horseshoes on the beach there." Nov 21, 17 2:22 PM

Discovery Land is to our community water source as Purdue Pharma is to our health care system. Tell us some more paid shills how dumping fertilizer into our aquifer is your right and our wrong." Nov 24, 17 8:42 PM

Vote On The Hills On December 5 Is Likely Just The Beginning Of A New Phase In Project's Debate

Lots and lot of words. Here's some more: if Town residents want Discovery Land of Arizona to build a golf course over our water supply we would have voted for it. Instead we elected Ms. LOFSTAD by an overwhelming majority. Sorry that doesn't work for you Mr. HISSEY but them's the breaks." Nov 29, 17 7:53 AM

Southampton Town's Conservation Board Says The Hills Project May Hurt The Environment

Environmental concerns are breaking out all over: from the Wall Street Journal: . Meat-processing as Tyson are finding it harder to build new plants in America’s heartland, despite promises to bring new jobs and other economic benefits. Many communities have raised alarms about groundwater pollution, infrastructure burdens and noxious smells. " Nov 29, 17 2:27 PM

Police: Mastic Man Tried To Sell Drugs To Undercover Police Officer In Hampton Bays Tuesday

Is this the same Jeffrey Hodge who was arrested on November 1 for possession? Or 10 years ago: Jeffrey K. Hodge, 46, of Southampton was pulled over by Village Police on County Road 39 on March 20 at 1:45 p.m. for vehicle and traffic violations when police said he became belligerent and shouted obscenities at an officer who asked for his driver's license. Mr. Hodge was arrested and charged with three misdemeanors: criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, obstructing government administration in the second degree, and resisting arrest. He was held overnight for arraignment." Dec 1, 17 10:11 AM

Why is an obvious drug addict who was arrested just weeks ago for heroin possession driving people to complete drug deals in Hampton Bays? " Dec 1, 17 10:16 AM

Mr. Hodge must have a great attorney and be quite a persuasive person. Arrested twice for heroin possession in the Town if Southampton and still be able to convince his friend to sell to an undercover narcotics officer. Is he out on bail again?" Dec 2, 17 7:44 PM

Released on his own recognizance. Is this what is meant by "catch and release"?
Happy Holidays, Mr. Hodge!" Dec 3, 17 9:04 AM

Fate Of Canoe Place Inn PDD At Shinnecock Canal Relies On Pair Of Upcoming Votes

It was mentioned by Supervisor Schneiderman at the candidates "debate" that the approval expires in January if work has not begun. Personally, I think the OBI East, birthplace of the Long Island iced tea, is a poor excuse for preservation but I feel that way about the "fishing pier" that our Federal government is paying for, with money that was supposed to be for helping people rebuild their homes. If the project lapses and reverts to "as of" zoning it won't be a terrible turn of events and that restaurant on the east side could be easily built into a nice venue. The real damage is a new US tax code that seems directly aimed at sucking money out of Long Island due to the taxation of state and property taxes with a federal tax -- yes that's the result of ending the deductible for residential property taxes. " Dec 6, 17 5:30 PM

Canceling Of School Board Meeting Angers Parents, Students Looking To Defend Teacher

There are these things called "elections" that apply to school boards. I suggest the good people of Eastport take back control of their school budget from these $200,000 to $400,000 per year compensation package bureaucrats." Dec 8, 17 9:13 AM

Paul Manafort Looks To Spend Christmas In The Hamptons

добро пожаловать" Dec 20, 17 12:42 AM

Comrade Paul is welcome to spend his Rubles where he wants, its a free country, or will be until we let his boss Putin, aka Stalin Lite, buy the next President too. Maybe he can buy more real estate here with money Putin and his friends stole from their fellow citizens and gave to Mr. Manafort to lobby for their right to steal from the Ukrainian people, without of course identifying himself as a foreign agent which just happens to be almost the last law.left restricting foreigners from buying votes in DC."

Southampton Town Board Approves Canoe Place Inn PDD Extension

Do you think that the interest expense from mortgages over $750,000 is no longer deductible might put a crimp in this real estate project? Or that the property taxes on multi million dollar vacation condos is not deductible might slow pre-sales?" Dec 21, 17 6:57 PM

What do you think gets built first, this development or the wall on our national border that Mexico will pay for?" Dec 21, 17 6:59 PM

Paul Manafort Looks To Spend Christmas In The Hamptons

Remind me, was it President Obama who convinced everyone to invade Iraq based on false intelligence, thereby spending $2 TRILLION for no return to the United States except for wounded combat veterans and an expanding Iranian dominance in the Middle East? Or was that the Republican Party?

At least we get a big tax cut in return for adding ANOTHER $1.5 TRILLION to our national debt -- oops, that's right our local property taxes that pay for the Florida retirement and full healthcare benefits of our local government employees are no longer deductible.

THANK YOU REPUBLICAN PARTY." Dec 22, 17 7:16 AM

Sure they are. So, what are you paying for health care? Deductible go up much this year? Good job repealing and replacing Obamacare with something much better, Republican Party, you sure know how to fix a problem." Dec 22, 17 8:51 AM

Related but mostly because that failure to repair our deficit from the healthcare entitlements disfunction -- the real question is what percentage of the tax funding for the $100 million Town of Southampton budget is now at risk. What percentage of our tax receipts are from households hit with the new tax plan, i.e. paying more than $10,000 a year in New York State and property taxes? Alot, maybe more than 50% -- and an ever rising Town budget with lower tax receipts from lower property values due to this new Tax law will not be a good outcome for any of us." Dec 23, 17 2:06 PM

Southampton Town, PBA Ink New Contract Extension

"A typical plan costs about $28,000". WQW, more than $2000/month. Too bad the local hospital and doctors that work for it aren't owned by the State University of New York, then our taxes supporting that institution could cover the health expenses of the local government workers.

Wait, what?" Jan 3, 18 8:28 PM

President Donald Trump asked his aides why the Medicare program couldn’t be dramatically expanded, according to Michael Wolff’s new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

Trump, Wolff writes, impatiently wondered aloud during a discussion about health care why the federally administered program could not be expanded to cover “everybody.”

‘Why can’t Medicare simply cover everybody?’
President Donald Trump, as quoted in ‘Fire and Fury’ by author Michael Wolff

Trump’s promotion of the idea reportedly shocked aides, including Steve Bannon, with whom the president has now broken over statements in the book, which Trump has called “phony.”" Jan 7, 18 2:51 PM

New Offshore Drilling Proposal Could Hit Close To Home; Zeldin Voices Opposition

Except not Florida. Guess raising money with Bannon not a good look for our Congressman.
"I support the governor’s position that Florida is unique and its coasts are heavily reliant on tourism as an economic driver,” Mr. Zinke said in a statement after his meeting at the Tallahassee International Airport. “As a result of discussion with Governor Scott’s and his leadership, I am removing Florida from consideration for any new oil and gas platforms."" Jan 9, 18 8:17 PM

Maybe we can get Alec Baldwin to run...or better, Billy." Jan 9, 18 9:00 PM

For the record, the previous comment is from the Wall Street Journal, so it's real news. And we have a Town Supervisor who has proclaimed "clean" energy but I have yet to see a solar electric installation -- hopeful that the multi million dollar bathrooms in Good Ground Park will have that. Drilling for oil off the coast of Long Island is a terrible idea but so was building a nuclear power plant in Shoreham -- and thanks to the Cuomo I administration we're still paying for that." Jan 10, 18 10:20 AM

This is fun too:
Alsup was tasked with, among other things, determining whether it would serve the public interest to leave DACA in place while litigation over the decision to scrap the program proceeds. On this point, he had an easy answer: Trump himself had expressed support for DACA on Twitter in September, just days after Department of Homeland Security officials rescinded it.

“Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!” the president wrote in a Sept. 14 tweet. Another read: “Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do). If they can’t, I will revisit this issue!”" Jan 10, 18 10:26 AM

IF TRUMP WAS PAUL REVERE: "The British. Who are some of my
best friends. They're coming, and going, and it's all very exciting."" Jan 11, 18 8:33 AM

I stole that last bit from Ann Coulter, one of President Trump's biggest supporters. His constituency is turning on him, which means our Congressman is way out in the political Siberia. Which is in Russia." Jan 11, 18 9:23 AM

East Quogue School's Reserve Fund Still Exceeds State Limit

Ask who is the underwriter for the bond, and what the underwriting fee is, this is based on the bond amount. Also ask what the legal fees are too. Look for any connections. Follow the money." Jan 14, 18 7:15 AM
