Hank Tucker seeks to unseat mayor in Westhampton Beach

Seems odd he was the liason and feels the need to rework policy and procedure. Wouldn't that be part of his efforts?

Also, it odd to say there wouldn't be a fair hearing without stating why? It really begs the question." Jun 17, 10 11:24 PM

Police: Westhampton Beach Village Trustee Joan Levan trespassed on former candidate's property

Judging from the comments listed above I'd say Hangin' is too good for her. Crikey, where is Atticus Finch to bring some sanity back to our society?" Jun 22, 10 10:18 AM

Well it is after all a representative democracy so......." Jun 22, 10 10:21 AM

I bet the Arrasates don't have a latching gate and their are in clear violation of building codes. That being said, I bet this is a smokescreen to prevent a visit by some guy with lots of keys on one ring and a flashlight that holds 8 "D" batteries in a row." Jun 22, 10 10:24 AM

Dictionaries delivered at elementary schools

...and I was worried that they couldn't possibly have access to a dictionary via the web or as an app on an i-touch." Jun 23, 10 11:00 PM

Police: Westhampton Beach Village Trustee Joan Levan trespassed on former candidate's property

Dude...it's sarcasm.

Think about it...the only reason that level of detail is in there is to publicly make the case it was trespassing. I don't give a hoot about Joan Levan but did anyone ever think that this story is a bit...contrived?

If you read these comments one would think burning at the stake would be proper.

As for the Beach Blogger he is well versed and a good read. His downside is unless your one of the sycophants (see Wheeler, Frank and many others) you are just insulted. BTW he had her as a census taker or was that just more missed sarcasm." Jun 23, 10 11:11 PM

Suffolk County Police officer accidentally shoots self in foot at Westhampton range

Matt's right, there is no humor in this (perhaps irony but irony isn't always humorous). Is this any different than an oceanographer being bit by a shark, an electrician getting shocked, or a fireman getting burned? The nature of each of those roles includes an element of danger and as such it is likely that a person who carries a gun may shoot him/herself or a fireman burn the meatloaf.

Westhampton Beach business faces fine for allowing bus company to use its parking lot as a terminal

Is this really a big deal?

I'd rather get dropped off and picked up there than in Manorville!" Jun 23, 10 11:24 PM

Hampton Business and Technology Park pre-submission conference set for July 8

When I think of Technology hot beds in the US I immediately think of Silicon Valley, Redmond Washington, Cambridge, flatiron.....but not Westhampton" Jun 23, 10 11:32 PM

Town, county might buy Bailey's Motel property in Westhampton

"He added that the property has valuable archeological and environmental features."

..and just what might those features be? They were there before and no once cared to buy it then." Jun 23, 10 11:36 PM

Police: Melee draws large crowd in Westhampton Beach

Yeah...have them hike up their pants...that'll stop the brawling!" Aug 19, 10 11:34 PM

Walt, Mom wants her sheets back and boy is she gonna be peeved you cut eyeholes in the pillowcase" Aug 19, 10 11:35 PM

Right no one asked and you never told.....good boy " Aug 19, 10 11:37 PM

Airport Empire Zone grounded before takeoff

PS a technology park was a stupid idea to begin with, or hasn't anyone the guts to say THAT aloud" Aug 19, 10 11:41 PM

Sportime wants to manage East Hampton hockey rink

Why does the otn "need to get something out of it"

Isn't it viewed as a spublic service for the good of all?
Does the library or town parks pay back?
What about free street parking?
trashcans on the corners don't make money?

maybe it is for the good of anyone using it" Aug 20, 10 12:15 AM

Police: Melee draws large crowd in Westhampton Beach

OK what you wrote is pretty inane. So you had a grandfather who was a medic. Big deal. Old major wrote "Now, here's an idea. These kids with their attitudes, baggy pants and such. You tell them, not only is there a 9pm curfew--but you have to be in bed by 10pm. That would solve this problem of unruly teens, and maybe if they got a little more sleep, they wouldn't be so darn grumpy. Just an idea..."

This guy sounds like Homer Simpson's father.

" Aug 22, 10 12:52 AM

40% I think not.

The reality is these kids were for the most part under 18. What exactly do you want them to be doing (I'll give you not fighting, but WHB is not a town that has a ton of teen employment. The largest employer is the country club)

Leave Walt alone...he's very happy in his double wide posting for a mail order bride" Aug 22, 10 12:58 AM

New proposal for religious boundary on public roads spurs questions in Westhampton Beach

I like your idea and may I take it a step further? I proposed when the Eruv was an issue in WHB some time ago, that the WHB allow it on the condition that the Rabbi step down. He seemed o be the center of the firestorm and alienated me when I saw the YouTube video that he affirmed he would make sure an Eruv happened.

Read the Gothamist...lots of issues between the Williamsburg residents and the hipsters. It's not a reach to imagine that if the objective is to accommodate Orthodox Jews then it is likely they'll wish their views respected (naturally) which means no more girls riding to the beach in bathing suits." Sep 10, 10 10:05 AM

I know the alterations to the house are another issue and I know the Rabbi did not apply for this eruv, but it still bears mentioning that if you or I flouted the Planning Board as he had, we would not be treated so kindly." Sep 10, 10 10:12 AM

So is this is what they meant when the shopkeepers wanted to ban silly string?" Sep 10, 10 10:16 AM

It was over a girl named Maria and I think it was the sharks vs the Jets." Sep 12, 10 11:08 PM

Occupants evicted from former Guldi home in Westhampton

Maybe it was the edited article but who exactly was "evicted" when no one was home. Putting the furniture by the curb sounds like a camp prank? Isn't the real owner dead?" Sep 12, 10 11:14 PM

Debate over Jewish religious boundary begins to heat up

Ok so no one is picking up on the stupidity of "It will allow my diabetic friend to be able to bring her syringes and insulin to the synagogue on the Sabbath.”

Not taking prescribed medication is just dumb. Of course being so observant she won't be driving when she slips into a diabetic coma.

While I am on it, where are the Catholics? I have a fish bone to pick with them this Friday" Sep 30, 10 10:53 PM

Proposed cell tower in Westhampton faces hurdles

Seems to me that if weather conditions are enough to knock down a properly built tower then your house is probably kindling anyway." Sep 30, 10 11:10 PM

Debate over Jewish religious boundary begins to heat up

You my friend make the most sense on this board. Good on ye!" Oct 1, 10 12:03 PM

I may cut the string every Friday and start an Ortodox taxi service...no door handles or doors for that matter! I could be rich I tell you. Rich!" Oct 1, 10 12:06 PM

How is it irrelevant?

The Temple requires the approval of an authority yet it is the same authority they flouted in the past.

I think Highhat is on the mark and has the marbles to say it. You can't have it both ways. If you want a government approval in one area it has to go for all areas it is not la carte and what is more galling is that if it were a private citizen..let's say you or me...they'd have us ripping out any changes."

Just for the record, priests do not have a vow of poverty. Jesuits do, but not your typical parish priest. " Oct 2, 10 8:47 PM

I've started a new religion and I'd like you all to join.

Rather than string wires like silly string art I'll just use an existing area roadmap. Heck that's too hard...so let's say anyone in exchange 288 can join...no wait area code 631! My religion is simple: please and thank you predominate most requests/acknowledgments. Everyone should be kind, happy and drive safely. Enjoy a morning coffee. Take a bike ride. For initiations we'll go in the ocean when the waves are up. Oh and our high holy moment is at 5ish when the kids are reading or playing nicely and I am enjoying a frosty beer while digging my feet into the sand thinking about the lamb steak I am going to cook on a hot smoky grill and the bottle of new Zealand ice sold Sauvignon blanc while I am waiting.

Come back at me all ye' haters!!!

And forgive me for the run on sentence...." Oct 2, 10 9:00 PM
