In drowning aftermath, residents push for better beach protection

I grew up in an ocean beach community in the south - from an early age we were instructed to only go in the water at lifeguard protected beaches, and we knew both ocean safety and respect for the power of the ocean. The drowning was a terrible incident; but with a coast line the size of east and south hampton, every beach cannot have a lifeguard.
Mr. Hallett speaks of parent responsibility - it is very upsetting to see parents letting their very young children play at the edge of the ocean while they talk on the phone, etc. far up on the beach.

Town Board Tries To More Clearly Define Benefits Of PDDs

Its vague to benefit the developers - every PDD allows greater density than could be built under existing zoning - and the public receives very little or nothing at all - someone should list all the granted PDD's and their alleged public benefits.
The public speaks and speaks and the Town Board looks only to its contributors and the next election." Oct 28, 10 11:30 AM

Former President Bill Clinton Will Stump For Congressman Bishop On Wednesday

boy do you have a short memory. The world was better before the bush years; now thinking people are trying to put it right again. Look at when the deficits began, look at the when the financial crisis began, look at how the rest of the world views the US; and thank the bush conservative years for this. The rich got richer, the deficit got bigger and the middle class suffered." Nov 1, 10 12:06 PM

Lets see, bush was president for 8 years and did nothing. If policies were flawed it is the job of the sitting president to fix them, Bush doesn't get a pass go free card.

West Hampton Dunes Village, Residents Challenge Authority Of Town Trustees

Westhampton Dunes is all about destroying the environment; incredibly with tax payer money. Now that they have built too much, too big, too close to the dunes they want to destroy what is left. The only good thing about Westhampton Dunes is that they are a testament to greed and how not to build on the fragile coast." Nov 23, 10 4:18 PM

Despite Objections, Southampton Town Board Appoints OTB Official To Top Management Post

This is politics at its worst and the losers are all of us in the Town. First the position is reinstated and then a political appointment is made. Is anyone else sickened by the behavior of the committee of three, I am especially surprised at Nancy Graboski - I wonder what position has been promised her when she leaves the board."

Community Reeling from Arizona Shooting

Why do "law abiding citizens" need extended clips. Until 2004 we had a reasonable ban on these clips and on assault weapons - why not renew it?" Jan 13, 11 7:10 PM

Stony Brook Announces Plans To Add Programs, Some Residency At Southampton Campus

I'd like to also see some continuing education programs - these cost a college very little (adjunct professors, no need for students to reside on campus) and the east end has a large, well-educated senior population always looking for enrichment. It also would involve another group (seniors) which would have a stake in expanding the programs offered - a group with considerable political clout." Mar 2, 11 10:00 AM

Some Second Homeowners Might Be Taxed Twice Over

You can respect teachers and still criticize their overinflated salaries, time off and pensions - how many of us have the summers off and tenure and a union. Unfortunately anytime anyone says anything negative about teachers unions they are accused of hating children and teachers. Its time to reform the system, combine school districts and actually educate our children." Mar 9, 11 7:26 PM

Offer To Plant Cherry Trees In Agawam Park Withdrawn

This says so much about what is going awry with our once beautiful community. The idea that planting trees will "make a mess" says so much. I think we should look at who runs the community, and who makes decisions and who is afraid to make decisions. The offer was generous, thoughtful and would have been beautiful. The people of SH lose again." Apr 27, 11 9:51 AM

Camp Developer Files $65 Million Lawsuit Against Project Critics

Suits of this type are called SLAPP suits - Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation and are fundamentally different from other types of
lawsuits because they seek to stifle legitimate political expression. Citizens are allowed and encouraged to comment on land use and environmental matters - thats why there are public hearings. A lawsuit of this type if only meant to scare people into not commenting. Jay Jacobs should be ashamed.
