Police Suspension May Hint At Issues In Department

He still looks like Paul Sorvino" May 9, 12 7:27 PM

Really?

now why exactly would a policeman protect a drug dealer? Family? Money? Paul Sorvino would punch you for such an unfounded allegation." May 10, 12 10:12 AM

Finley Says She Will Sue If Not Allowed Back At Farmers Market

I think we ought to have a Hunger Games moment. We can throw the WHB Chamber of Commerce, Erin and Simon in the mix. Instead of cheering a victor it's likely we'll cheer when the cannon goes off." Jun 7, 12 9:20 AM

Ground Is Broken On Condo Development In Westhampton Beach

Why is this a good idea? If it is zoned commercial/hotel it should stay as such. Mark my words in 2-3 years these ejjits will be filing lawsuits about their quality of life against the LIRR, the asphalt plant, the car wash and hey probably even the mini storage. The North Mall wanted to update and expand and the proposal was killed by the residents behind them. Forget anything now. BTW WHB could use a hotel but closer to town." Jun 7, 12 9:25 AM

Pre-Dawn Raids In Hampton Bays Prompt Complaints

" Crowded into slums is more traumatizing in the long run than a raid"

Really? And with what basis are you making this claim? I just hope on some weekend when there is an extra car or two in front of your house Code Enforcement bangs on your door and wakes your kids up for a headcount. " Jun 8, 12 5:14 PM

Westhampton Veteran Forbidden From Flying Old Glory

Would this be news if it were any other type of flag?
I think not.
Condos have their own set of community rules by which you must abide. I got fined many years ago for having curtains that did not have a white backing.
If you are an individualist, condo living may not be for you" Jun 8, 12 5:22 PM

Lawsuit Filed Against Westhampton Beach Regarding Eruv

There is no such thing as a Constitutional credential. You may be an attorney schooled in Constitutional law, but not all attorneys are that well versed (e.g. patent attorneys, real estate attorneys etc.). Some professors certainly merit consideration for exceptional knowledge in Constitutional interpretation and application but again...

THERE ARE NO CONSTITUTIONAL CREDENTIALS" Aug 9, 12 12:02 PM

I quote you directly "In other words, you HAVE no Constitutional credentials."

Seems that is literal and it seems your caps button is stuck..

So it's ok for you and not for me?

Westhampton Chamber Reverses Course, Agrees To Host Halloween Parade

Bridgehampton Students Have A Lesson In Manners

Hah! If successful it will be mandatory to take the course and pass if you wish to continue to patronize The Beach Bakery in Westhampton. " Oct 3, 12 4:54 PM

Accounting Errors Prompt Westhampton Beach Village To Hire Attorney To Review Finances

Funny i went to post a comment the other day and it never hit. Not that it was posted and removed, it just never happened. In short, there is something seriously wrong if your first reaction is to hire an attorney who was once a Village clerk. The normal protocol is to go to your own accounting firm if there are posting problems. If the accounting firm is the problem, get a second accounting firm opinion. To go legal means you are either lying about the situation or are incompetent, in both instances that is unacceptable whne handling other people's money." Oct 13, 12 11:16 PM

Beach Bakery No Longer Supported As Kosher By Hampton Synagogue

I never knew it was kosher in the first place. I just don't notice that stuff. That being said, are there even any other kosher restaurants in WHB? I think not, Even the bagel place?" Oct 17, 12 10:03 PM

Dune Road Breach Widens During Nor'easter

If left alone will it help with circulating the waters in the bay? If so, does that then help alleviate any red or brown tides?" Nov 4, 12 6:24 PM

UPDATE: Nor'Easter Expected To Affect South Shore; Voluntary Evacuations Called For

Mr. Terchunian speculated that a nor’easter would be “devastating” to Dune Road, and several people could lose their homes and businesses. “It could be bad,” Mr. Terchunian said.

Or not

It's this type of doomsday speculation that dulls people's sensitivity to real danger. There's no guarantee it will even develop!" Nov 4, 12 6:27 PM

Dune Road Breach Widens During Nor'easter

I will almost always bow to your superior knowledge of the environment especially in matters near or on WHB. The 6/10/27 article in this paper noted "A destructive “brown tide” algae bloom has once again swept across western Shinnecock Bay, the Quogue Canal and eastern Moriches Bay, and this year’s occurrence appears to be approaching levels not seen since the devastating succession of blooms that nearly wiped out shellfish stocks in the 1980s and 1990s."

Now i know there is a difference b/w Eastern Moriches and the new cut...but not much. I can also assure you that crappy brown water gets as far as Swordfish.

My non scientific mind thinks that the problem should be addressed in two ways: attack the cause and provide a cure. The cut may be a cure in the right spot" Nov 6, 12 12:42 AM

Westhampton Beach Trustees Delay Budget Transfer For Third Time

Starting to sound like shades of East Hampton Budgeting "Oh we are in balance..see! Oh wait you mean that positive is offset by the negative on this page? Oh wait...that means I'm running a deficit!"

Sounds silly but unfortunately was true just a short time ago in EH.

maybe they forgot to budget for those golden parachutes?" Nov 8, 12 9:16 AM

Cops Called To Westhampton Beach Village Hall After Bakery Owner Refuses To Leave Without Permits

Seems Mr. Jorna got a taste of a long line and middling service. Now he might know how the people feel on the other side of his counter. Will Chief Dean remove all the people in front of me at the Bakery?" Nov 14, 12 11:14 PM

In my last run in with a vaunted town official (not Houlihan but still part of that ilk), they stopped me when I was getting my mail and threatened to write me up for violations because a bush had overgrown the fire hydrant. It had but it wasn't egregious nor was it unexpected given that ti was a wet spring. I was greatly taken aback by his hostility and threat to fine me. I countered that I did not own the land nor the bush. My property line was further back. it wasn't as if there was an easement either. When I offered to have my landscaper do it and I could send the bill to Southampton township since it was their bushes and property he raced off in his truck never to be heard from again. All I could think of was that my taxes fund his hostility but the stupidity was all his own doing." Nov 15, 12 9:40 AM

I just get peeved when he flags other countries flags higher than the US flag....he had remedied this last September but he has certainly done it many times before!" Nov 15, 12 2:28 PM

Not at all. Different day, different post. Additionally, the thoughts are not mutually exclusive. If you note my comment on Mr. Jorna it was more about the mayhem on the customer side of the counter rather than the poor young ladies and men who deal with that throng. As for my SH experience it was not Mr. Houlihan but indicative that the mentality is pervasive. I consider it to be like a security guard...you know he is an authority figure because he has one of those long flashllights filled with D batteries.

Also please note that it these building permits include work to remove an illegal apartment that Mr. Jorna installed and was asked to remove. Considering Jorna thumbed his nose at WHB for the last 4 years, 4 more days seems just.

DEC Estimates Cost To Close Cupsogue Breach At $6 Million; Work Begins This Week

Nature - good call!

This is dumb. it's not as if you are connecting houses or repairing roads. You are essentially reconnecting spits of sand. The 'science' behind this beguiles me. I would think circulating the water in to the bay is 'good" and what sea life would be 'affected'? It's not like a Russian tanker dropped zebra mussels in the Great Lakes. Whatever is there certainly could swim around the inlet before this happened." Nov 16, 12 5:59 PM

I'm for wader's rights and filling it in for the beach-going public violates my basic right to wade through the water at low tide. Additionally, boater's rights where we dredge things to deeper also violates my rights to water that is shallow enough for me to wade through. " Nov 17, 12 1:19 PM
