Montauk School may cut after-school and summer programs, busing, to close budget gap

Its interesting that the Montauk School Board would cut so much from the children yet not ask the union for any givebacks. They need to be remember they are elected by and to serve the taxpayers and resedents not the teachers union." Apr 30, 10 6:44 AM

East Hampton to state comptroller: No kidding. We're cutting the budget

Now if only the school districts would take the hint." May 6, 10 11:05 PM

Hey facts man do you think our UNELECTED New York State Comptroller even knows how to spell the words 'budget cut'? Remember he was a member of the legislature in Albany. All he knows how to do is spend." May 11, 10 6:26 AM

Foster claims lack of transparency in East Hampton Town financial plan

How many times does Deb Foster need to be reminded that our current fiscal problems are her fault? Nobody I know wants her input. Deb Foster disgraced herself and her party with her inaction. It's time for her to retire preferably in another town or state!" May 12, 10 6:01 PM

Taxes up 10.6 percent in Montauk; Hausman runs unopposed

For the first time in my life I'm going to vote against a school budget even though I have school aged children. There is a lot of finantial hardship in our community at this time. The teachers union needs to help us out on this one. Every cut made directly affected the children. Each time a contract is negotiated the union mantra is"it's for the children". Lets see them put THEIR money where their mouths are for a change!!!" May 12, 10 6:18 PM

Court orders trial for fishing license challenge

Has anyone considered that a freshwater licence is an expence equally shared by all New Yorkers because there are freshwater lakes all over the state, but a saltwater licence predominantly affects Long Islanders who are the only (besides Staten Island and Manhatten) state residents surronded by salt waterand who already pay much more in taxes than they recieve back in services. And who really thinks this licence fee will remain at ten dollars?" May 12, 10 10:38 PM

Foster claims lack of transparency in East Hampton Town financial plan

I don't know about that Lost Tribe Overby and Catalano appeared extreemly partisan at wednsdays planning board meeting. Seems like the local Dems don't like taking the same medicine they feed everyone else." May 14, 10 6:38 AM

East Hampton to state comptroller: No kidding. We're cutting the budget

Facts Man I'm not calling you anything but Facts Man. I do however believe that so many people are angry about what's been done to them and their town that there is just no patience any more for debate. People see this administration as their last hope. These people( the administration) are doing exactly what they campaigned on, and those who screwed it up are just standing around throwing rocks. It's time for them to get with the program'stop the lies, deceit, and politics and offer something constructive for a change." May 14, 10 2:30 PM

Court orders trial for fishing license challenge

It's very simple snarko 77 the patents were codified in the New York State Constitution when it was written and ratified." May 14, 10 5:51 PM

Task force breaks up East End heroin ring

The only way to stop heroin use is to eliminate the heroin. The U. S. is in Afganistan where ninety plus percent of the opium in the world is grown. If we were to think outside the box a bit we could win over the " hearts and minds" of the Afgan farmers by purchasing their opium and then distroying it thus saving billions of dollars in related expenses and untold amounts of human suffering and misery. I realize this is an over simplification but it could and should be explored." May 15, 10 11:05 AM

Taxes up 10.6 percent in Montauk; Hausman runs unopposed

We must let our pockets dictate what we can afford or we risk no longer being able to live here. It seems every time taxes go up two distinct groups emerge responsible, elected officials feathering their own reelection nests or unions who only look out for their members not the children or the taxpayer. I may be uninformed but if you add the step increases raises are at least 5%, that is 20% more than an informed person like yourself Earl' so stop peddling your nonsense and start telling the truth."

East Hampton Planning Board rebuffs Wilkinson's request for streamlined review

I've never been through the planning process but what strikes me is the lack of respect shown the elected officials by the appointed ones. There was a severe lack of leadership demonstrated by the chair first of all. Secondly if applicants are treated in the same fashion we not only need to speed up the process we need new people on the planning board and in the planning department to accomplish this."

State Legislature passes financing bill for East Hampton

P.A.B. sounds like Deb Foster her plan is not good for the taxpayer but it is good for the local Dems. The deficit, gone in one year, sounds great right. Problem is the people living here now will be paying the freight for all the people who move in later if we institute a one time tax. This is the reason things are bonded for. Everyone pays their fair share if we spread out the payments and the only loser is the local Democratic Party as people realize how badly they screwed up protecting the last administration.

Bill Clinton will campaign for Bishop

That's great, the two people who put Shouthampton College out of business the first time are getting together to continue putting the country out of business. " Jun 3, 10 5:27 PM

East Hampton to solicit bids to sell Fort Pond House

It seems to this reader that that the Town of East Hampton publicly embarrased itself for the previous six years. Now the new board is left to clean up the mess and has to listen to fools who refuse to see the very real problems we now face." Jun 12, 10 12:23 PM

Montauk group pushes for oil facility ban in East Hampton

Let me get this straight, since we no longer have Bush in the White House it must be Wilkinsons fault that oil rig exploded in the gulf." Jun 17, 10 9:51 AM

East Hampton plans changes to hunting grounds, affordable housing

Pete Hammerle "won" an affordable house for his family, his mom got an apartment at Windmill Village I guess his daughter must be about to finish school." Jun 17, 10 6:33 PM

No jail time, fine for Hults after guilty plea; grand jury does not indict McGintee

In East Hampton it seems O.J. Simpson is no longer the #1 guy who got away with it, and the local Dems will now forever be known as the McGintee party." Jun 24, 10 8:17 PM

Lobster moratorium could be coming to northeast

Thats right lets send all these jobs to Canada , I mean there are sooo many to choose from here." Jul 3, 10 7:15 PM

Contractor, marina owner cited by DEC for dredging

The only town permit needed for this project was a natural resources special permit which was in place.It seems as if Samuelson want's to run for office with the McGintee Party and is trying to make his bones by picking on a hard working local family. So factsman, it's time for you to start researching your facts instead of opining, and remember the guy who claims the public property as his own is only a few properties south of Gibbs. Gee I wonder who made the complaint?????" Jul 10, 10 4:38 PM

Factsman, I'm sorry but when the Gov't is juxtaposed with a private sector company I'll always take the word of the citizen over a cover my butt Gov't employee." Jul 12, 10 11:16 AM

Montauk residents considering recall for Wilkinson, Quigley

What a bunch of IDIOTS, these are the same people who imitated the see no evil speak no evil hear no evil monkees when local Democrats kept filling the landfill for 10 years after its ordered closing by the D.E.C.,then bulldozed the Sammy's Beach Nature Preserve and filled it with dredge spoil (I wonder if that spoil had all the bad things in it that they said came out of the Crabby Cowboy?) and then watched as McGintee and his minions destroyed the credability of the C.P.F. Where were they then! It's all political. " Jul 21, 10 10:52 AM

In an incorporated village people like Prager would have to produce instead of just throw stones. Her kind would vote against incorperation." Jul 22, 10 6:11 AM
