Sag Harbor teachers plan to march through village

I think the school board is totally lame. The teachers deserve both a contract and a raise. Mostworkers I know have not taken a decrease in salary-unless they are in real estate-the real estate agents are the ones who deserve to lose money-they falsely inflated the market and now are whining that they didn't make mega money last year. If they got a real job like teaching or plumbing or nursing they would be fine.
I am glad to pay my school taxes-too bad favaunt and sagHarbor Bob never got a decent education that made them appreciate what a dedicated teacher looks like. If you want to know what dedication looks like, look for someone working for years with no contract, but still putting in hours of overtime.(in this town that means one of those people wearing a grey tee shirt.)"

Sag Harbor School Board, teachers to resume negotiations

Maybe all the people saying teachers don't deserve a contract should wear a shirt saying how much they earned last year-their actual earnings, not what they put on their income taxes. I know an awful lot of contracters being paid under the table who are whining about teachers getting paid half of what they get-teachers who pay all of their taxes.

As for the gang attire-that is just dumb-most of the kids wear tee shirts to school as well-is my child in a gang because he has the same shirt as every other middle schooler?
The administration should be ashamed that they have contracts and the actual workers(the teachers) don't. The huge salary raise Dr. Gratto recieved is an indication that the board doesn't have a mind of their own. The boards refusal to sit down and talk as well as their refusal to listen to the fact finders report reminds me of a bunch of six year olds who go crying to mommy that the rulesi are unfairbecause they don't like that they are losing following the rules.
My sons teachers are all dedicated to their jobs despite being treated like they are no better then a day worker picked up by the train station. I am glad the teachers demenstrated-it shows students that they should stand up for themselves and others when an injustice is being done not bury your head in the sand and whine.

Late Start Doesn't Stop Stony Brook Runner From Winning Firecracker 8K

This was the most poorly organized race I have ever attended. The website had two starts times, an hour apart, registration was a mess: if you registered two people and paid, it only recorded one, and the clock was stopped before all the runners finished. I imagine attendance will be way down next year: I heard nothing but negative cdomments from participants.

Police Looking For Man Who Stole Handbag From Southampton Village Store

Our tax dollars at work. Meanwhile, my neighbour got hit by a hit and run driver and Southampton Town told him that since there was no witnesses, he was lieing about it, it didn't happen, case solved. That bruise on his back from the impact and the broken arm: not sure how the cop thought he got those...Collettes should put in some cameras. They are constantly reporting that things have been stolen. " Oct 3, 14 5:16 PM

County Officials Won't Remove Guardrails On Long Beach Road, But Suggest Road Redesign Instead

As someone who has lived here for over fifty years, I remember exactly once that a car drove into the rocks. As a someone who has run or biked on that road almost daily for the past thirty years I can attest that with the guardrails, the vehicles go much faster. With the rails, if you are running while someone is biking(which is a common occurrence) someone ends up in the road: there is no space. This is a designated biking route: it was extremely poorly designed guard rail, leaves pedestrians and bikers no protection. No lives have been lost there due to guard rails but it is only a matter of time before a runner or biker gets mowed down because motorists are speeding along the road while texting.

It is all new. And you are a lot more likely to get into an accident there then get Ebola so maybe you should get your priorities in order. Any one who is seriously worried about Ebola is pathatic." Oct 23, 14 12:37 PM

Wainscott School District Says Affordable Housing Would Significantly Raise Taxes

Wainscott needs to quit their whining. They already have ridiculously low taxes because they have so few year round residents. Now that the people who fix their cars, clean their houses, put out their fires actually want to live there, they complain?

As Memorial Day Approaches, Sag Harbor Village Makes Some Adjustments To Parking Regulations

Sag Harbor has to provide parking for people who work in the village. Why not some kind of shuttle from either the high school or make the old dump a long term parking lot and run a shuttle like they have in East Hampton to town?

Woman Seriously Injured In Hit-And-Run In Water Mill Sunday Morning

Horrible. My son was hit by a hit and run driver in September. The cops blew it off because there were no witnesses. Southampton Town Police don't care about local pedestrians." Jun 1, 15 7:02 PM

Uber Arraignments Adjourned To July; Attorney Says Criminal Records Is Biggest Fear For Drivers

No other industry drives people around, putting there life in danger(yes, an Uber driver was ticketed for DWI). And the service industry does have to comply with local laws regarding permits, time of work, licensing.

Sag Harbor Man Charged With DWI Twice In One Week

Shouldn't he be locked up or have to pay a huge amount of bail since he is a serial offender? Are we waiting for him to run over a dozen people this week?" Jun 20, 15 8:15 PM

East Hampton Softball Coach Tenders Resignation, Under Pressure, After 27 Years

This man has had complaints against him for over fifteen years. He is a bully and the girls are often on the verge of quitting because of the nasty things he says to them. He should have been fired long ago, but because he is a "winning coach" they kept him on." Jul 14, 15 3:36 PM

UPDATE: Police Say Drunk Driving Was Cause Of Wednesday Night Accident On County Road 39

Just hope that Southampton Town Police actually investigate this fully and not go with him being ejected. They are known to go the easy way to "solve" a crime. " Sep 2, 15 3:52 PM

Driver In Connection With Anna Pump's Death Says He Did Not See Her In Crosswalk

I don't understand why they do not put lighted crosswalks like they have in East Hampton at this spot. It is very dark.

Hamptons Marathon Looks To Move Race Route To Southampton

I have run this race six times. Most of the route is open to traffic: there is a very limited road closure. Typical EH nonsense.
