President signs historic health care legislation into law with Bishop's support

Castro is also a big baseball fan - better call off the season, Reality!" Mar 30, 10 12:38 AM

And your source is what? And we should belive you why?" Apr 2, 10 1:26 AM

Whale killed with bullet; experts defend how beaching was handled

"...in West Virginia..."

West Viginia? Marine Animal? Kind of shows where their collective head is at." Apr 10, 10 1:47 PM

Sounds like a pretty tough little whale to me. Four days - no food. Thrashed by waves for four days. Half a dozen or more tranquilizers over 48 hours. Surrounded by idiots for half a week. High powered rifle shots (an earlier report said three shots).

Tell me again how terrible it would have been to pull it off the beach the first day." Apr 10, 10 1:52 PM

The story in Newsday (the daily tabloid to the west to at least one poster even though it's on store shelves in Montauk and home delivered all over the east end) ran two pages but was quite thin in some information. It indicated those on the scene reported an assessment to those at the conference in West Virginia (why there?) who made the decision that death was the only viable outcome.

What it didn't say was WHO was on the scene, WHAT were their credentials? WHY they made some apparent errors in the age and developmental stage of the animal? WHEN would more qualified personnel have been available to make a better assessment? WHERE do we go from here? Is it just going to be business as usual?" Apr 14, 10 12:03 AM

Publisher of Dan's Papers files for Chapter 11

Hmmm, probably something to do with an earlier post referring to 300 pages a week - most of it advertising. Remember when there were a couple dozen pages of glossy cover wraps every week?" May 4, 10 11:15 PM

Town supervisor says Canoe Place Inn developer working on alternative plan

It just won't work. The western part of the building has settled so unevenly the third floor hallway has been like a roller coaster for thirty years. The eastern part is built on piers, not a full foundation and is all wood construction. It would never meet the standards for modern housing. Too bad, but that's the way it is." May 4, 10 11:33 PM

Woman killed in motorcycle accident on Napeague stretch

Yes, you're missing something. The charges he faces now are preliminary, he'll be charged with some type of homicide/manslaughter case after the DA investigation. The lawyers can tell us if a grand jury is necessary." May 25, 10 10:44 AM

Police cite 21 on drug charges at Neptune Beach Club over holiday weekend

I wonder how many of these people were never at Neptune but were in the town lot the whole time?" Jun 2, 10 10:53 PM

Village attorney asks board to consider shutting down cement plant in Westhampton Beach

If you can name a single bar/dance club closed under any amortization law you'd surprise the legal community which has been waiting for its big payday defending against any such fatuous, discriminatory, pandering action by the pols." Jun 4, 10 1:03 AM

Southampton Town officials revisit idea of charging clubs for additional police presence

Just what the town needs to do - strike another blow against the local economy." Jun 4, 10 1:14 AM

Hurricane season begins with predictions of busy year

Would someone please remind us of when the "experts" last did NOT warn of a busy hurricane season. Yawn." Jun 4, 10 1:20 AM

Southampton Town officials revisit idea of charging clubs for additional police presence

Do you think that the "study" done in the Heaney years might have come to the conclusion desired by those paying for it?

Do you think all those vacant stores, shuttered motels, and out of business restaurants in Hampton Bays and East Quogue just might be related to the town buying up the beach clubs to appease a handful of fogies? Oh yeah, the town was going to "give that space back to the community" - how's that working out so far?" Jun 5, 10 2:37 AM

Village attorney asks board to consider shutting down cement plant in Westhampton Beach

No, it didn't happen. The "general legal doctrine of nuisance" doesn't exist. Specific laws do, but politicians are big on showy representations, not on creating viable law." Jun 5, 10 2:42 AM

Brooklyn man drowns, friend still missing at Cupsogue Beach County Park in Westhampton

Yeah, you really have to watch out for those Brooklynites. Wait a second, isn't Brooklyn on Long Island?" Jun 7, 10 1:29 AM

Southampton Town officials revisit idea of charging clubs for additional police presence

Here's some specifics: Conscience Point was turned into a town marina which competes with private businesses, the promised restaurant has never materialized. Summers was renovated and is rarely in use even though the adjoining Tiana pavilion is a decaying ruin. Sandbar Beach Club, Hampton Beach Club (Hot Dog), Drift Inn have all been leveled and sit vacant.

My premise is that continuing all those in the private sector would have saved the town a LOT of money and would be revenue producing, tax paying, employment offering, sources for the community at large (as opposed to a handful of those same fogies). Anybody want to chip in to buy the Canoe Place Inn?" Jun 8, 10 12:15 AM

Village attorney asks board to consider shutting down cement plant in Westhampton Beach

Well of course they'll agree, there's not much support for a long standing business that nearly all here have no call to use. The real question is after all the politicking is over (as if) will any of the board find the wherewithal to effect the change they are now championing (or is it pandering)? I think not."

No. Perhaps I haven't made myself clear, my gripe is the fraudulent reasons the town has given for taking any of these properties with CPF money. They have been pandering to the fogies by closing these places through those purchases.

We all end up paying the price and the places are forever off the tax rolls and fewer and fewer places exist for their clientele to spend their money. Fewer motels, fewer restaurants, fewer shops, fewer boat dealers, fewer ice cream shops, fewer gas stations, fewer pizza places.

It's not all "fewer" though, there are many more vacant houses and stores." Jun 8, 10 11:38 PM

Rumor about attack in village is debunked by police

You saw 12 "illegals" exit a van? Are you sure they weren't just 12 hispanics? ALL hispanics are illegals, aren't they? Did they have "ILLEGAL" tee shirts on? Were they chanting "We're here without visas"? How was their footwork while marching? Maybe a touring troupe of flamenco dancers? You are quite a piece of work." Jul 1, 10 11:02 PM

Southampton at work on its affordable housing business plan

Nobody elected Al Algieri to speak for "his" community. The Southampton Town Board has a long sad history of listening and pandering to those who have more time on their hands than the majority of the community." Jul 23, 10 11:08 PM

Stony Brook Southampton committee discusses expanding arts, marine sciences programs

Uh, let's see...based on past experience...that would be...uhh...yes!" Jul 28, 10 10:23 PM

Hampton Bays woman drowns in pool during party

Let's see...3 AM Monday the 9th. Story out a little before 3 PM Friday the 13th. Hey, it's August - you're entitled to a vacation. Just don't try to pass yourselves off as a news organization." Aug 14, 10 12:31 AM

Trub and pack are entitled to their opinions. Mr. Z raised the question of the delay in reporting, the editor's response was totally inadequate choosing to focus on the time of the incident and disregarding the next four days. I called him on it and make no apologies.

It is indeed a sad story, the third drowning in the area this week; it shouldn't happen." Aug 14, 10 5:56 PM
