Southampton School Officials Consider Eliminating Valedictorian, Salutatorian Designations

For once I agree with the chief. What happens when these kids get to college? Or for that matter when they step out in the real world? I was taught, in order to get what you want in life you have to work for it. If you want to acknowldege the efforts of more than the top two in a graduating class then by all means include the cum laude levels but not in place of the validictorian and salutaroian distinctions. In life everyone can't be in first place. Its a lesson they should learn sooner than later. " May 30, 12 10:59 AM

Southampton School Officials Consider Eliminating Valedictorian, Salutatorian Designations

At the end of the day, all the lawsuits in the world are not going change how a child fairs in life. Ok so you file suit becaue your kid got Salutatorian instead of Validictorian...is that going to affect the outcome of college acceptance or how well they are going to do in college? What next, are mommy and daddy going to help them with their term papers? Are they going to call a potential employer if they opt not to hire their kid? (that does happen) At some point kids have to experience dissapointment. Its part of life. " May 31, 12 9:43 AM

John Behan, Former East Hampton Republican Committee Chairman, Endorses Bishop For Congress

Never served in the private sector? Career Politician? He worked at Southampton College for 29 years. I think 29 years at Southampton College counts as work in the private sector. He began his political career in 2003 I suppose 9 years in an elected office could make someone a career politician, but that’s debatable You may not like his politics, and that's fine but please be factual in your assertions regarding his background."

Westhampton Veteran Forbidden From Flying Old Glory

"Condominium developments have their own sets of rules, and the unit owners do not own the exterior of their homes, their driveways or the land and landscaping in front of their homes."

I read the same article as the rest of you. They are not telling him that he cant fly the flag, but they are telling him that he cannot mount on the new siding, because it would void the warranty. This was not an arbitrary decision. They offered him alternatives, but he does not want to come out of pocket to pay for it and I don't blame him. The complex should pay for it. BUT if they do it for him they will have to do it for everyone...there in lies the problem. The cost of installing flag poles or some other method that will not damage the new siding. If enough owners are bothere by this, there will be a meeting, and condo fees will be raised to cover the cost of installing flag poles or other mounting divices. At the end of the day for the Condo Board its about dollars and cents. " Jun 5, 12 3:32 PM

Kiernan Suspension Is Extended By Two Months

Nature, here is the problem with your statment, yes those convictions were vacated, but the DA has not named the officer that they are investigating. Secondly...you don't even know what the charges are against him...I've yet to see them detailed, do you have a source that you can share? " Jun 13, 12 11:30 AM

Hampton Bays Students Urge School Board To Keep Spanish Teacher

I could be wrong but I'm thinking the class offered to students who speak english as a second language, is to teach them how to speak English. I graduated from Southampton High School, when I was in school there were maybe two or three no English speakers, and they worked with the Spanish teacher to learn how to speak English. Soooo if thes kids are here legally, and they need to learn English why not provide a class that will help them. You'd be surprised how fast they pic it up, they are usually out the the ESL classess within a year or two at the most. So ESL classes are of value to the community. " Jun 14, 12 8:28 AM

Is there a law on the books regarding the language spoken in this country?

I guess the big unanswered question is....Why was she asked to resign? Sure the kids thinks she's great, but I'm thinking that there had to be a reason they wanted her out and its not just because she's latina. From and HR perspective...when they give you the option of resigning, its to save yourself some trouble, plus she's not commenting so I'm thinking that she is not in a good position on this. If she resigns she walks away with no damage and she can pursue other employment opportunities without a black mark in her employment history. " Jun 14, 12 3:09 PM

Friend of the subject of the article? It does suck to see people posting negative comments about a friend. Just dont look." Jun 14, 12 3:13 PM

I dont understand...arrested 3 times for DUI ....she hit someone while drunk...got off on probation...violated...wouldnt own up to the violation...and she gets 7 months in a DWI program? What am I missing? Why is she given so many chances. Does she have to actually kill someone before they lock her up in a real jail?" Jun 26, 12 9:17 PM

UPDATE: County Road 39 Reopens Six Hours After Crash

I hate to break it to you but this happens everywhere not just the east end of Long Island. Hmmmmm I was traveling on the BQE once and traffic came to a complete stop...I was stuck for close to 3 hours...not sure how long traffic had been stopped before I got to that point. Why? Auto Accident. Interstate 95 near the PA DE Border...stuck for 4 hours...Why? Auto accident. It has nothing to do with where you live. It’s just what happens when there is an auto accident with fatalities or possible fatalities. It sucks but it happens. I look at it like this; the families of the people injured or killed in these accidents will want to know what happened. I know I did when my father was killed in an auto accident. The police are doing what they can to answer the one question that we all have in a situation like that...What happened? Opening up a lane of traffice is not the priority. " Jul 25, 12 7:31 AM

I was there during the wild fires...I was working out west at the time and was heading home in the thick of it....I don't recall being stuck. Of course I know my way around and I had been forwarned. I made it from hicksville to southampton with minor difficutly. I have also survived a my share of hurricanes out there. Traffic isnt a huge conern then either. The city folks head back to the city and the locals ride it out. Hurricanes dont come out of nowhere. Evacuating to my knowledge has never been an issue on the east end. " Jul 26, 12 7:37 AM

Lawsuit Filed Against Westhampton Beach Regarding Eruv

Its really not a big deal, the exist in other communities on Long Island, and those communities have not become orthodox jewish enclaves. Its just some markings on a telephone that mean nothing to anyone outside of the orothodox jewish faith. It wont stop anyone from going about their daily activites, it wont in anyway have a negative affect on anyone in the community. The only thing this eruv has done is show that bigotry is alive and well. OMG the Jews are coming, the Jews are coming. They'll take over our town....come on people really? " Aug 8, 12 7:02 PM

Drug Task Force Announces Felony Drug Arrest

Romney Makes Second Visit To The Hamptons On Friday

I don't have a problem with voter ID laws. I just find it interesting that no one cared about voters showing ID's at the polls until AFTER President Obama was elected. Why is it so important now? " Aug 28, 12 11:16 AM

UPDATE: One Airlifted, Several Others Injured In Three-Vehicle Crash; Montauk Highway Reopens

What if the doctors were wrong? I understand their disire to help, but at the end of the day, the fact that they were doctors does not mean that anyone has to take there word as golden. The Volunteers did what they thought was best. The fact that you stressed the word volunteer does not mean that these men and women are hacks, they are trained EMT's they made a judgment call. I'm sure the injured party appreciates that. They may have been rude to the doctors, but when you're in a situation like that, I doubt being nice polite is on the top of your to do list. You seem to be taking this personally, were you one of the doctors?" Aug 29, 12 9:31 AM
