Gender-Neutral Restroom Provides Safe Space At East Hampton High School

Err.. that's a Unisex bathroom. We've had them forever. It's not "gender neutral" in the sense that is causing waves in the news. I think it's a good solution to the problem, but lets not make it out to be anything more than what it really is.. a unisex bathroom." Apr 7, 16 6:32 AM

Sag Harbor Detective Suspended For 30 Days For Undisclosed Disciplinary Matter

Look at the number of arrests made by Detective Proctor versus his predecessors and you will find he does his job very well. We'll see what the hearing yields." Apr 28, 16 6:19 AM

Southampton Elementary Principal Cookie Richard Reflects Before Retirement

Time to bring Donna Denon back into the district. She should have had the job in the first place. Richard was not the person for the job and Boyes knew it." Apr 28, 16 6:23 AM

Southampton Village Begins Crackdown On Nightclubs

The Chief's comments don't make any sense to me. Public urination and open alcohol are Village code offenses (just like every parking ticket and a plethora of other offenses), of which you have to be found guilty.

I think the only difference is the urinator has enough sense not to do it again.

Seems to me not all establishments are treated equally." Jul 2, 16 7:08 PM

Southampton Supervisor Pitches New Housing Division

Wow, 3 houses in how many years? The entire thing is a waste of taxpayer money. IIRC Mr. Highsmith was selling mortgages at HSBC before he somehow landed this job. No disrespect to Mr Highsmith, I wish I were so lucky. But it does call into question the qualifications to run such an undertaking. It has worked so well that the Southampton Business Alliance Housing Initiative had to start providing affordable housing on their own. They are also out there inspecting Section 8 in the Town.. a service that would be picked up by the County in the absence of the STHA. Eliminate the entire division, sum the total of their salaries and benefits and distribute it on a lottery basis to qualified homebuyers." Oct 6, 16 3:48 PM

EDITORIAL: The Press Endorses Anna Throne-Holst For The U.S. House

He supports constitutional rights for all citizens. If there was legislation floated to allow the police to enter your home and search your belongings if you were on a no-fly list, you'd be outraged. Unfortunately you can't (or shouldn't be able to) pick which amendments you suspend (2nd or 4th) without some solid groundwork on how the rules will be applied. "Because we say so" generally isn't well received.

UPDATE: Publick House Will Reopen Friday Night

Figured I'd mention that any money received through GoFundMe is taxable.

Seemed relevant.

I also don't like excuses. Make a mistake? Own it. As a business owner, collecting sales tax and not remitting it would not even be an option. Sell the car, mortgage the house. Whatever. Welcome to being a business owner.

Poor businessmen make poor decisions.

Long Island Automotive Museum Sold For $5.1 Million

It's going to be condos or a co-op. Why do I think this? Because somebody has already planted the seed that it has a "pre-existing non-conforming" right to build them.

I would really like to know how you get a pre-existing non-conforming right to a use you never had.

At this point they shouldn't even be able to have a museum (if that is currently a non-conforming use, I don't know) as it hasn't been in continuous operation since a zone change.

The author of this article needs to clarify who stated this had a pre-existing right to condos or co-op, and research exactly how that is possible. Not saying it isn't, but my BS meter is pegged.
