Cops: Hampton Bays Crash Puts Motorcyclist In Critical Condition

People use Gravel Hill & Argonne as a cut through and race track. I am surprised there are not more accidents.

I understand that the motorcyclist is struggling for his life. Our prayers are with he and his family.

Southampton Town Examines Ways To Address Substandard Private Roads

But they purchased their property knowing that it was a private road and it was their responsibility to maintain it as well as plow it. Although I know that the town does plow these roads although it isn't a priority.

Why should they get a tax break for being on an unimproved road, then my taxes should pay to maintain it? That makes no sense.

If they didn't realize the ramifications of buying on a private road, that is not my or your problem." Jul 11, 12 6:32 PM

But again, why? They purchased their property with the understanding that it was their responsibility. Why should we now take on their mess and spread the cost to the rest of the people who have paid taxes for years to have their roads maintained/ I don't understand what the rest of the town is to gain other than more taxes. oh joy." Jul 11, 12 10:36 PM

Which means what exactly? That they should have a longer time to realize that the roads are THEIR responsibility LOL. Who cares who long they've been here?

The other point would be, had they maintained them instead of allowing them to get to desperate disrepair it would be such a major cost now.

Their responsibility which they chose not to take care of.
" Jul 11, 12 10:38 PM

They pay less for their property, it is worth less. That was their decision. Now the rest of the town is supposed to spend their money to fix the problem, hence raising the property value of those that chose to live on a private road. Why?

Since these roads present a "danger" the town should require that they maintain the roads to a set standard. you can't have the best of both worlds, lower taxes, and someone else to fix your property for free.
" Jul 11, 12 10:43 PM

It gives them the "right" to pay less taxes!

Their responsibility. Why were the roads allowed to fall into such disrepair to begin with? Their decisions.

Town Leans On Rumba; Board Appoints Hearing Officer For Tumbarello

Wow a conspiracy and everything? Sorry, driving down Canoe Place Road at night I do not feel that Rumba "is good for everyone". Too many people in too small an area causes problems.

Convenient that you don't mention the sewage issues instead of ranting about some "good old boy".
" Jul 13, 12 2:03 PM

Wow Terbear you must spend a lot of time at this place since you know how often they pump their cesspools! Why in the world would anyone NEED to pump their cesspools every 4 days? Surely sounds like a reason that what the Town Board is saying is true, not false. As far as the condos, are you suggesting they are torn down because...Well because what? They were built as condos with the appropriate septic needs. Rumba's on the other hand, was never intended to be a restaurant it was built as a fishing station. See the difference there?

I am unsure from what your wrote whether you believe that Rumba is the only resturant who hires college students, brings in commerce and pays their taxes or if you were saying they are the only restaurant who pumps their cesspools every 4 days. LOL I would readily believe, however, that they are the only resturant who pumps their cesspools every 4 days since it clearly indicates there is a problem. Of course there is the point that no one is closing their doors, they are asking them to operate within the code of the town. Nothing wrong with that. As a matter of fact that is what the Town Board is supposed to do.

As far as the parking, I am well aware where the parking is. The Rumbus seems to feel that stop signs are not meant for them which causes a dangerous situation. People still try to pull into the parking lot. There is parking on the property, I was stopped while driving by just the other night while someone was attempting to pull into the full parking lot and was half way across the road. They were lucky someone didn't come flying around the corner while they were blocking traffic from all directions. All in all there are too many people on a street which is winding and dark and no I am not the person you claim is a PITA. Trust me, there are more than one person in the hamlet who are unhappy with the mess at this site.

As far as boarding up businesses...did you read the article? No one is boarding up the business. Silly terbear

" Jul 14, 12 2:40 PM

What nonsense? I am not sure who this person is that you are referring to but I'd like to give them a hand! They seem to be very powerful indeed to get the Town Board say there is a problem when there isn't and to get the Code Enforcement say there is a problem when there isn't.

Again, pumping cesspools constantly certainly support the belief that there is a problem at this site.

Can't people just go to the other restaurant which is able to handle the crowd? I understood that was the purpose they were establishing a second location." Jul 14, 12 2:45 PM

Police Display Car Involved In Hit-And-Run Death Of Nun As Search For Driver Continues

Wider roads, less shoulder, closer proximity between active roadway and sidewalk. It is pretty impossible to avoid an accident on North Hwy as it stands now, by pulling to the right, ie the shoulder. There is no shoulder! There is a curb then a sidewalk. Wider still? Ridiculous.

Town Leans On Rumba; Board Appoints Hearing Officer For Tumbarello

Where exactly did the Supervisor state this? I seemed to have missed that at the meeting or in the reports I've read but I certainly have no reason to doubt you. I am glad that Anna will be requiring all to follow the rules. By all means, the rules and codes are there for everyone. I am a bit surprised that the Supervisor would reprimand Town employees at an open meeting.

I am well aware that it was a restaurant before Terbear, obviously you haven't been around long enough to know that it existed well before that.

Do you spend much time driving around the area? If so, you'd see the Rumbus cruising right on through stop signs on a regular basis. Do you live in the Canoe Place Rd area? I never stated that I was speeding, and yes speeding shouldn't occur. Tell that to the person who gets into a major accident when someone has the road tied up trying to get into a closed parking lot. In a perfect world there wouldn't be a problem. You may have noticed this isn't.

As far as this being one person, that is completely untrue. You'd better be careful of slinging accusations before you have all the facts. Trust me, there are locals that don't like the establishment.

So why don't they just use the newer larger establishment?

I never accused you of making stuff up dear, your reading things that weren't stated by me.

" Jul 14, 12 7:22 PM

There is a difference between "concern about selective enforcement" and stating there IS selective enforcement. Perhaps that is why I didn't hear Anna state "Rumba IS being targeted with selective enforcement.". Her "having concern" really isn't the same thing. But why bother to be accurate, much more intriguing to put in a bit of spin.

Thanks for sharing your family tree...what does that have to do with anything? LOL Your statement: "what fishing station?!" indicates that you don't know the origins of the building Whether you were here from the beginning of time or moved here last week doesn't change the fact that the building was not built to support a restaurant.

What difference does it makes that the style of restaurant is different...are you saying it isn't as good, so people prefer to crowd into Rumba instead?

If Rumba was not in violation of the code, this conversation would not be taking place. I find it interesting that you don't state that they are not over crowded and of course the fact that they have to pump their cesspools every four days indicates a problem, which you don't bother to debate. So I guess you being a "local" and liking the place means it is ok that they break the law? That makes sense Ter. As long as TerBear doesn't have a problem, no one should.

If they are breaking the code, they are breaking the code. The code enforcement is paid to make sure establishments are safe. I don't care if you don't see the Rumbus running stop signs, I have. I don't care if you think that Canoe Place Road isn't dark and winding...your opinion. The fact remains, they ARE overcrowded. Why cram everyone into this place in violation of the code, when they have another establishment? Makes no sense.

Saying one person is the only reason this is happening is ridiculous. The Town Clerk would have record of those who have contacted the Town on this issue. Not just how many people have sent multiple letters, LOL, but how many people have written on the subject. I have no doubt that they've received input from both sides of the issue.

" Jul 15, 12 8:00 AM

Right no one has to have their septic system pumped every 4 days because they are equipped for the usage of the building. " Jul 15, 12 9:52 PM

Congratulations Ter now you know what boat station! LOL Guess I actually knew what I was talking about when I said it wasn't built to house a restaurant.

As far as employee HB Grads, will they not have employees if they stay within the codes?

They have a larger establishment use it to it's capacity and use Rumba to it's capacity. Its really pretty simple.

Hampton Bays Restaurant Owner Says Bridge Work Is Hurting Business

Only one person complaining? LOL right.

The LIRR is doing their job. Their job creates noise. Should we just let the bridges fall apart? " Jul 19, 12 9:20 PM

No no...it is only 1 person that complains.

Has anyone else ever noticed that every time there is a complaint about an establishment being noisy, etc. the supporters always say there is only one person who complains? I think we should be proud of that one powerful, determined person who creates an image of being a bunch of people! LOL

Town Leans On Rumba; Board Appoints Hearing Officer For Tumbarello

So they are equipped to handle only a few days usage? Why would that be?" Jul 23, 12 9:08 PM

No one, even the owners in their plea for support from the community, has stated that they are NOT overcrowded. How is enforcing the code "seeing through local politics? " I have asked this before and the question hasn't been addressed.

If they are overcrowded, they are in violation of the code. Same as any other establishment. Why is the defense that some local, political person is causing trouble. Overcrowding= Violations of Code. Where is this person in the equation? " Jul 23, 12 9:11 PM

Southampton Town Councilman Says Legal Action Could Be In Rumba's Future

We can't have both? A restaurant who follows the laws and is a "decent classy restaurant"? LOL Didn't know it was only either or.

I don't get it...Mr. Hersh admits that he is over the limits the law sets, but everyone complains about those that expect the law to be enforced?

ALL laws should be enforced!

Every time I read something that Mr. Hersh says, it sounds like a threat...if you don't let me break the law I'll turn into a bar. If you don't let me break the law, I'll go out of business. When the business was established one of the things that should have been considered was the location and occupancy. Due diligence." Aug 22, 12 9:05 PM

Good idea, why don't we start with Rumba terbear?! LOL

Which laws are the Town Board and Trustees not following Terri?

You are great about throwing out insinuations but not too great with having your facts straight." Aug 24, 12 8:24 PM

Sorry Terbear, it was always a private road which is why it was an unimproved road.

So you assert, no matter how many people state otherwise, that Ed Warner is the only person who has a problem? Sorry, I know that isn't true. Not to mention, if there wasn't a problem, why would they complain? Just to give themselves something to do? " Aug 24, 12 8:26 PM

Where did you read/hear that violence was tolerated?
" Aug 24, 12 8:28 PM

Yes it has been a restaurant for over a decade. But it hasn't been in violation of the law for over a decade. If he weren't in violation of the law, he wouldn't be "getting it".

Laws apply to everyone.

Wow you really have a problem with the Warners don't you.

" Aug 24, 12 8:40 PM

Do you understand the word "was"?" Aug 25, 12 9:06 AM

HUH? Your response makes no sense." Aug 25, 12 9:09 AM

Curious how you know where the complaints come from. You must work for the police or town.

Isn't it typical that the people who live next to a problem establishment would complain while those that don't live by it wouldn't? Surely someone who lives in another town or miles away wouldn't be complaining since they don't live there and experience the issues. You also have to figure how many of the neighbors of Rumba are year round. Those not there wouldn't be complaining.

" Aug 25, 12 9:13 AM

You have "no problem" naming them, but won't. That makes sense! LOL You will however blame everything on one family and name them repeatedly.

If you actually cared, you would be expecting all restaurants to be in compliance. That is all that is being asked of Rumba.

Hate to pop your little bubble Terri but this really has NOTHING to do with the Warners. Your "feeling" is wrong. This has to do with fixing the problems in our hamlet. ALL problems should be addressed not just the ones that aren't associated with you. Against small business, now that is a laugh and a half. Expecting people to follow the law is not anti business in any way shape or form. You never, not once, address the fact that Rumba is in violation of the law and why to your mind, that is ok. You never once say they aren't in violation, Mr. Hersh never says he is not in violation, yet there is this big conspiracy in the minds of the Rumba supporters. Right. " Aug 25, 12 9:23 AM

So what you are saying is that Mr. Hersh doesn't care a whit about breaking the law. He has made that fact abundantly clear by his statements and actions.

Did you really expect Jim Malone or any other Board Member to be there and tell them to behave?" Aug 25, 12 11:51 AM

Southampton Town Councilman Says Legal Action Could Be In Rumba's Future

And you believe they would be the only people complaining? Not everyone would attend a town board meeting even if they could. The fact remains, Mr. Hersh is in violation of the law. Since people want to see him get away with it, they will be sure to understand when others do also. He now has another establishment, why continue to break the law at this one? Wasn't that the purpose of opening a larger place? Makes no sense.

You can't have it both ways. If it is illegal, it's illegal. ALL business are supposed to be held to the same standards.
