UPDATE: Hampton Bays Taxpayers Reject $9.9 Million Library Referendum

Happy to see that the bond did not pass. Nearly $10M seems like an awful a lot of money for what I see as a facility that I think will become obsolete. I know I will get criticism, but what happened to Blockbuster? People no longer go out to rent movies; people access them digitally. Books, magazine, documents, etc. are all accessible online. A bond that will affect taxpayers for 30yrs, when user-ship is likely to drop in coming years, seems out of touch with the tax-payers and residents of Hampton Bays. I'm aware there are other functions/events/classes held at the library, but can't these functions be held at the Community Center? And don't forget that our schools all have libraries and computer labs for students to access. I'm all for maintaining the current facilities that we have, but this plan is obviously not working for the residents and taxpayers of Hampton Bays." Apr 5, 17 12:45 PM

Driver In Hill Street Crash Faces Manslaughter Charge, Was Traveling 78.3 MPH At Impact, According To Prosecutors

What happened to the days when people accepted responsibility for, and were held accountable for their actions? It's not like Jacob sneezed, causing him to drift into traffic. He completely disregarded the safety of others, and acted in a selfish manner. The live's of dozens of people, including Jacobs, has been forever changed. Regardless, he needs to be held accountable for his actions. I wish all a fair trial, but expect to see Jacob locked up for a long time. " Apr 13, 17 10:15 AM

Are witness reports and data retrieved from the defendant's vehicle not "actual information"? Or is this "fake" news/information?" Apr 13, 17 4:24 PM

Community Members Urge Southampton Town To Consider Legislation Limiting Local Police From Communicating With ICE, Honoring Warrants

I think the "Bank Robber" analogy is actually pretty relevant. One could compare the Bank Robber that brings a weapon and demands cash as a "Violent Illegal Immigrant". Whereas the Bank Robber that calmly hands a note to the Bank Teller asking for money can be compared to a "Non-Violent Illegal Immigrant." Regardless of the method, the act of robbing a bank is illegal, and it should not be tolerated. The robber clearly knows what they are doing is wrongful, and are risking the consequences. The Robber may end up in jail, which separates them from their family. The criminal's family and kids may be devastated as he was trying to provide for them. The same applies to Illegal Immigration. The individual (with, our without kids) knows that coming into the country without following the proper procedures is illegal. They are risking the consequences. They know they are putting themselves and their family in jeopardy. A desire to protect non-violent illegal immigrants is relatable to protecting the non-violent bank robber. Breaking the law, is breaking the law. There is no blurry line that separates the two. " Sep 27, 18 1:10 PM

Tensions Run High At First Public Meeting To Discuss SCWA Management Of Hampton Bays Water

Should HBWD get absorbed by SCWA, the $6.1M in necessary HB infrastructure updates are split equally amongst the 1.2M SCWA Customers. While it seems negligible at only $5/customer, that's only for updates to HB's 11 wells/facilities. What about the other 586 wells currently owned by SCWA? What's the current condition of these wells/facilities and what's the scheduled infrastructural updates for them? Since those costs will also be split amongst all customers, it's imperative that we know the condition of all water authority facilities/wells." Nov 29, 18 5:12 PM

South Fork Commuter Connection Launches Monday Despite Morning Storm Delays

Even when ridership is high, this will do very little to put a dent in the trade parade. It will however, give those who work in offices or retail, the option to bypass traffic. Many of the contractors that commute in from "up island" are already on the clock when they leave their shops. They are largely, if not solely, responsible for the hour plus commute for many office workers on the east end during the spring, summer and fall. However, the schedule chosen for this "commuter connection" simply does not work with typical office or business hours. How does one arrive in EH at 8:54AM, walk 15 mins to their Main Street office, work a full 8hrs, take a 30 min lunch break, and walk 15 mins back to the train station for a 5:14PM Train. Shifting the hours someone works is one thing, but you can't expect businesses to allow their salaried employees to only work 7hrs a day. That, I say is the reason for the already poor ridership, not this so-called "winter storm." " Mar 5, 19 3:29 PM
