Curious, why did Southampton School District need 3 new buses? What's wrong with the old ones? Too old? Are the new ones more fuel efficient? Why??" May 22, 19 3:17 PM

No no, don't you know?? The REAL Hamptons don't start until you cross over the canal. Take it from someone who grew up in Westhampton Beach and now lives in Southampton Village.

I agree with you by the way, just wanted to point out the stupid technicality " Jun 7, 19 8:31 AM

First Wind Farm Hearing Focuses On Wainscott, And Climate Change

Okay...man made climate change is absolutely real bigfresh. If you spend a half hour looking at google maps, you'll see that there is virtually no land not altered by humans. These land use changes have major effects on not only local, but global biogeochemical cycles. Now we are emitting more carbon than the land can absorb and store. The earth's atmosphere acts as greenhouse glass, trapping heat within. Even oil companies like Exxon have know this for nearly a century. Do you also believe that the earth is flat?

I can understand the concerns about not knowing what the price of the wind generated electricity will be, but moving the landing site to Hither Hills making the project more expensive for the wind company certainly isn't going to help lower the cost of the electricity. Regardless, the point is that we should be moving away from the use of fossil fuels and towards the development of clean, renewable energy. Oil and gas are cheap and plentiful, but they're dirty and toxic. Not only to us, but the ecosystems that we rely on for clean air, water and good health. Not to mention the burning of those fossil fuels which puts even more carbon into the atmosphere, increasing the warming effects of the greenhouse effect.

In addition, this bogus group of Wainscott NIMBYers are ridiculous. As someone who frequents Beach Lane year round, I can tell you for a fact that there are no more than MAYBE 5 households that live on beach lane full time. Every other household there are seasonal residents. Not only that, the work will be done in the winter, having literally ZERO effect on those summer residents. The road is already torn up by all of the contractors parking on the sides of the roads to work on these summer homes. The project is projected to be finished by 2022, which is decades too late, but better late than never. Keep building windmills, progress will not be stopped by selfish, ignorant and many times older folks, who seemingly have no regard for the well being of future generations and even there own families. I look forward to the day when we can stand on the beach and see the wind farms spinning in the distance as a symbol of progress.

Southampton Town Holds First Public Hearing On Balloon Ban

Come on knitter, balloons (other than weather & hot air) are completely useless and pointless. Sure, they can be kinda fun for decorations at events, but then they instantly become trash. We need to stop making things that immediately become garbage after we use them once, good riddance to balloons. They are stupid. There. I said it." Jun 13, 19 12:07 PM

First Wind Farm Hearing Focuses On Wainscott, And Climate Change

Moron,

I won't answer your questions for two reasons:

1. Fore1gnBorn already did accurately.

2. It's pretty clear nothing will change your mind, facts & data included.


I actually don't describe myself as an environmentalist, precisely because of the reaction it draws from people like yourself. However, I do have a BS in environmental science and care about future generations ability to live comfortably on the planet.

I'm not going to waste my time explaining basic science to someone who clearly has no interest in facts." Jun 13, 19 3:08 PM

How Nationwide Vaping Concerns Are Playing Out On The South Fork

I've found this reporting on vaping health concerns and deaths from the local to national level highly disturbing. This subject has been continually misreported since the first deaths occurred. The deaths are NOT occurring from the vaping of nicotine laden devices. They have occurred from black market & unregulated THC vape cartridges that are finding there way into every high school, college and community. Guess what everyone? Time to legalize marijuana. In high school, it was 100x easier to find pot than it was to buy alcohol. You know why? Because alcohol was legal and regulated, therefore it was harder for underage people to acquire them.

These black market THC cartridges have been found to contain vitamin E, which when vaped is a severe lung irritant, as well as small doses of hydrogen cyanide. Unscrupulous people who don't care about peoples health and only money, add these components to the cartridges because they help the THC vaporize more easily are cheap alternatives to the safer ingredients which accomplish the same goal. In states where marijuana is legal and regulated, these cartridges are tested for these unsafe ingredients. This whole vaping conversation is infuriating. You are all completely missing the point. Should there be more research on vaping THC? Absolutely. But people have been vaping nicotine for years now and all of a sudden a rash of deaths occur? It's obviously not from vaping nicotine. Some asshole black market THC vape cartridge maker put a bunch of crap ingredients into their carts, intentionally or otherwise, and a bunch of people got sick and died. It horrible, but it this shit happens with more illicit drugs like cocaine and heroin ALL the time.

Moral of the story, stop with the lies that this uptick in vaping illnesses and deaths is from vaping nicotine and acknowledge its from unregulated THC cartridges. Then, Cuomo should grow a pair and legalize and regulate marijuana state wide." Oct 8, 19 8:54 AM

UPDATE: East Quogue Village Incorporation Is Rejected

What on earth are you talking about with Remsenberg? Plenty of the homes in Remsenberg aren't even occupied year round and its basically a completely suburban area south of Montauk Highway. I'm glad they put low income housing there. By the way, we NEED more high density housing! If you haven't noticed, we live on an island with limited space and were running out of areas to develop.

On another note, there is no decent housing out here for anything less than $1200 a month. I'm not sure what the folks who are going to retire in the next 5 to 15 years think is going to happen to the East End when it's nearly impossible for any young local people to afford to live and work where they grew up.

Hampton Bays Dune Washes Away Again; Town Supervisor Says Relief Is On The Way

Couldn't agree more. The time for a planned coastal retreat is now. It makes no sense to keep dredging thousands of cubic yards of sand out of the inlet only to have it wash right back in during the next storm. Meanwhile, we are wasting millions of dollars moving sand from one place to another.

It will be much cheaper to turn these threatened areas into parks, vegetate them heavily with native plants and let nature run its course. When storms inevitably damage these coastal parks, re-vegetate them as quickly as possible and hope for the best. It by far the most logical and economical solution to the inevitability of rising ocean levels. " Oct 30, 19 3:39 PM
