IRS says Southampton Town comptroller owes $650,000 in back taxes

Are you being sarcastic? If not you are bafflingly naive!" Apr 17, 10 12:35 AM

Southampton Town Board promotes three police officers to sergeant

Ahhhh, I see you found the proper spot for you dig! Nuzzi is bad for the Town. Malone needs to drop his county gig! Graboski is honest and does what she honestly feels is right. " Apr 17, 10 12:49 AM

Southampton Village Police launch internal investigation into inappropriate computer use

I think if you read the article again you may be able to gather some more info, the below excerpt seems to indicate they are looking into more than one employee.

“She was one of several employees that we were going to speak to in reference to inappropriate computer usage”" Apr 17, 10 1:14 PM

Controversial house gets new home in Sagaponack

If this is only a temporary home for this house, why all the whining about the land not being slated for development? It is temporary and will once sold, will help to procure more open space.
Unfortunately it may be too late to require that the proceeds stay in Sagaponack, that specificity would likely have to have already been included in the contract between the developer and the Peconic Land Trust.
Gifted open space means just that, open space how does the type of structure put there change the designation? Would a 300 year old barn be appropriate?" Apr 17, 10 1:23 PM

LOL, Naive I am not..... you sound like Yoda! You must be wise!" Apr 17, 10 1:27 PM

Southampton Town Board promotes three police officers to sergeant

When Nuzzi ignores the majority of his constituents concerns, he becomes bad for them and the Town. He has repeatedly said one thing and done another or nothing.

I like Malone, I just don't like how he kept his County job after saying he would resign if elected. You are right Public Service isn't Wall Street that why it's called Public SERVICE, he was on Wall Street for quite awhile and said he is here to give back to the community. I'm not proposing we deny him a livelihood, just proposing he keep his word and be the man he said he would be before the election." Apr 17, 10 1:41 PM

Controversial house gets new home in Sagaponack

I was under the impression that the house would be sold on it's own to be moved to a subsequent parcel. I don't disagree with you that the funds should stay within the Village of Sagaponack, I just think it may be too late to stipulate that. This is the problem with private conservation entities such as the Peconic Land Trust. They are not bound by law to hold these properties as open space. Sagaponack is quickly losing all of it's character as the last of the unprotected farmland is desecrated with trophy homes." Apr 17, 10 10:49 PM

Gobble gooble! You two are so comical, polar opposites and both off the mark!

Oddone sentenced to 22 years in prison

You said "do you realize people go to prison for life for lesser offenses?"
Such as? One more thing (I) gets capitalized." Apr 17, 10 11:04 PM

How about you back up your statement, Oh wait you can't... gotcha. What you said really doesn't make sense, there are guidelines for sentencing which prohibit excessive punishment, so I don't see how someone is going to get life for a lesser offense." Apr 18, 10 4:09 PM

If they had tested him and found anything they would've probably lost the results or changed the story, like they did with his allegedly being drunk. The officer in his initial report said he was intoxicated, then on the stand committed perjury, when he said he had been mistaking. How many people were not intoxicated by 1am on that Wednesday night at the Publick House? " Apr 18, 10 4:17 PM

Gotten down like everyone else? The girls were not asked to get down, so how can you say he would have gotten down like everyone else?
" Apr 18, 10 4:20 PM

He was drunk, do you know this for a fact? If this is so, then the SHV police officer committed Perjury, when he testified that he had been mistaken in initially writing that Oddone was intoxicated. Just a taste of what will be brought up in the appeal." Apr 20, 10 7:00 PM

Town Highway Department warns of wide trucks on Dune Road in Hampton Bays

Is it just 4x4's that emit carbon? Do you happen to drive a Prius?
The number of people driving their 4x4's on the beach is so small and none of them are going anywhere near 80mph.
If you want to complain about carbon look to our utility companies and the LIE and other major roadways." Apr 20, 10 7:06 PM

I'm with you on the birds being stupid, any bird that chooses to l
make it's nest on the ground, doesn't deserve protection. They should leave the Plovers to defend themselves, ecological succession will decide if they are needed." Apr 20, 10 7:08 PM

Oddone sentenced to 22 years in prison

An appeal doesn't get granted, it gets filed, then adjudicated. Whether or not the decision gets over turned will be up to the NYS Court of Appeals, most certainly not you.

If Oddone was drunk that night, which he more than likely was (sober people don't get on tables to dance) and Officer Keystone knew, then he did commit Perjury, wouldn't be the first time a cop has been less than truthful on the stand. " Apr 20, 10 9:13 PM

Town Highway Department warns of wide trucks on Dune Road in Hampton Bays

Least Terns nest on the dredge spoil islands in Shinneock Bay and are not a consideration on the ocean beaches. It is the Piping Plover that has taken over our beaches, it has become a cottage industry protecting these winged vermin.

When I said "They should leave the Plovers to defend themselves, ecological succession will decide if they are needed" I was referring to the protective enclosures built to protect them from raccoons and foxes which are NATURAL predators, in accordance with ecological succession. I realize the cages also protect the birds from ferrel cats as well as dogs being walked along the beach.

As for looking up ecological succession in an encyclopedia, I doubt that would be possible. I think a dictionary would be the reference tool for that job! LOL

Driving on the beach is restricted long before chicks hatch and after they are able to fly. I don't understand why these birds deserve special treatment, they are of no particular use. Except in Central and South America where they are considered a delicacy." Apr 21, 10 1:37 AM

Hampton Bays school budget includes 18.5 percent tax hike

No one in the school is going to lose their job if this budget doesn't pass. It is irresponsible to increase spending at this point in time. Everyone is feeling the pinch and they decide to increase nonessential programs. I will be voting against this travesty as well.
" Apr 24, 10 3:39 PM

Guy, where are you pulling this 82 cents a day from? Everyone has a different burden do to their particular tax assessment. It doesn't hold at 82 cents for all, so you can drop your hyped up talking point already!
Even if it were that, it could be the difference for some people of 2-3 days a month of food to eat, so kids can play some more sports? Sorry, if I put peoples need to eat before playtime!" Apr 24, 10 3:48 PM

A school with many non english speaking children doesn't necessarily make a strong community, I makes it weaker when everyone can't communicate. To graduate students who can't fluently speak English should be a crime." Apr 24, 10 3:54 PM

Yes, it was! I learned to write in script in 3rd grade at 8 years old. I imagine the importance of writing in script has lessened due to the increase in computers being used in education. We used to have to write all our essays and reports in script, now they are typed, for the most part." Apr 24, 10 3:59 PM

LOL. Think, how did this child get so far in such a "good" school district without his problem being detected? As for your assertion that todays schools are tougher, this is not true the standards fluctuate constantly. They do not just continually get harder. When I was in school you couldn't graduate HS without reading, writing and speaking English, now this has changed and for the worse." Apr 24, 10 4:05 PM

It is expansion of the sports programs lablover, not education, get it straight.

As for the hole in the fence, there is no fence and that is part of the problem. There are no repercussions for entering this country illegally, it is win win for them so we can't expect it to change." Apr 24, 10 4:11 PM

Rage and hatred are the fall back argument for something that can't be defended with facts or common sense. The other more inflammatory word is racism, when you don't approve of something that has to do with someone of a different nationality or ethnicity it is attributed to racism. Ironically this is done by bigots, they toss the word around every time someone doesn't agree with them!
By doing this they do a disservice to the word by using it when it is not applicable." Apr 24, 10 4:17 PM

83 cent a broken record a day! It would be annoying if you repeated something that was accurate but this is approaching comical, good job Jester!" Apr 24, 10 4:24 PM

I don't think I heard anyone suggest that we close the schools. I have heard people say that they should try to get more out of what they have, which is not unreasonable. Everyone is has trimmed spending and tried to stretch their $, why shouldn't the school district do the same? The state has cut back because less money is coming in for the people, why does the school assume they can bleed us dry? In the last 10 years our school taxes have gone up 300% in total! That is out of control.

They are increasing spending for more sports teams, read the article again or maybe for the first time." Apr 24, 10 4:36 PM

Officials want to use Southampton Town's Community Preservation Fund to save Stony Brook Southampton

Too big to fail? Too much invested it! Sounds familiar. I would love to see it saved, but not with the CPF, that is not the intended use of it. This whole scheme stinks to Albany. I hope Cuomo catches wind of this and nips it in the butt before they start weaseling the way through whatever loopholes Freddie & Co weaved into the language of the fund." Apr 24, 10 4:46 PM

Good call the photo op makes me nauseous. Cheesing like the rats they are!" Apr 24, 10 4:52 PM

Is license law a keeper?

The Trustees have already allowed the Dogan Patent to be amended through the State Legislature, in changing their elections from Annual to Biennial, they also changed the number of trustees who serve from 12 to 5. By allowing this to occur a precedent has been set where by the State may alter the terms of the Dongan Patent, thereby making any right granted in the Patent subject to the State Legislature's interpretation." Apr 24, 10 5:12 PM

So far nothing extra in Attorneys fees, it has been handled thus far by Assistant Town Attorneys. This is as much about sending a message to Albany that LI and the east end in particular, are not to be viewed as revenue sources for the subsidization of other parts of NYS, as it is Trustee powers and rights. The later being very questionable due to previous modifications to their rights granted in the Patents." Apr 26, 10 2:21 PM

Oddone attorney files appeal

A medal? LOL That is his job, much the same as it is a fireman's job to save people from fires. We really have lowered our standards in this country, we give praised and reward for people doing what they are paid to do.... unbelievable. " Apr 26, 10 2:26 PM

Cost of office furniture included in state's bid for federal grant

The nerve of these gluttons, to include furniture while they are cutting back money going to the districts. These people are a perfect example of what is wrong with this country! We ned to eliminate this type of element from positions of authority." Apr 26, 10 2:35 PM

Pilots charge that politics played a role in Levy's decision to add clause to leases at Gabreski Airport

$1500 a month for two acres of land? sounds like a pretty cheap rental rate and they have to whine about construction wages? Why because no they will end up hiring legal workers at a higher wage? Suck it up boys, it costs to house your toys!" Apr 26, 10 2:39 PM

Property values increase by $2 billion in Southampton Town after latest assessment

Hook or Crook is the motto for Southampton Town!
Disgraceful.... want more money can't even keep the roads clears in the winter.
Can't keep the books straight ever! " May 4, 10 10:23 PM
