Southampton Town Board Approves Purchase Of East Hampton's Share Of Poxabogue Golf Course

Sorry, I didn't realize it was a mandate of town government to provide "recreational enjoyment" at the taxpayers expense. The analogy was that the town purposely purchased a private ongoing entity to thwart possible development. What's to stop them from purchasing any other and converting it for public use to stop a development. I always thought that is why we have zoning laws...." Mar 27, 12 2:50 PM

"Not to mention the "taxpayers expense" used to purchase this golf course came (mostly) from millionaires and billionaires trading real estate"

Jealous, hey Nature....when properties come off the tax rolls, we all pay. Please don't confuse public safety a need to spend money for the sake of spending money..." Mar 28, 12 9:43 AM

Do you understand how taxes are levied? Maybe you need to take a course.

Dead Pygmy Sperm Whale Washes Ashore In West Hampton Dunes

Make a crew of people lug a dead whale 500 feet because we can't ask a piping plover to move..amazing. It's nice when money is no object." May 4, 12 8:16 AM

Nature, You are joking right? What does more damage in that instance....a bunch of people (destroyers of all thing good) lugging a 800 pound whale 500 feet or backing up a truck the five hundred to make life easier? After someone in the group goes out on disability with a bad back it is guaranteed to cost more. Besides that Mrs. Lincoln...how was the play?" May 4, 12 10:13 PM

Southampton Boy Will Be Allowed To Play Field Hockey Next Season

This is the type of decision that will allow school districts to drop field hockey from their program. If 5 or 6 boys go out for the team what happens then? When your daughter gets barrelled over by a boy playing the sport will you bring a lawsuit? This is ridiculous. Start a club team. Travel. Thats what hockey players, fencing, luge athletes do. Waste of taxpayer money." May 15, 12 2:25 PM

When you reach puberty....comment again." May 15, 12 6:42 PM

26 Vacancies Found In Southampton Village Business District

Who wants to do business in this town.? Two or three years and a ridiculous cost to open a store. Everything is Special Excepted zoning. Even "permitted uses" cost a fortune. Let all the big chains and box stores come in. They are the only ones that can afford it. That is where the residents shop anyway." Jun 11, 12 11:55 AM

Landlord Blames Westhampton Beach Village For Vacant Building

let's leave it looking like garbage instead of coming up with a plan such as phasing in the work. The problem is that government officials have no idea about costs and what it takes to survive in business. They follow the rules that they created to do nothing but protect their own jobs and benefits. Going into business is tough enough without being substantially in the hole before you can open. Strict public safety is important...having someone spend a forturne on a landscape design or what color sign to put up is not." Jul 19, 12 11:10 AM

Rumba Owners Are Trying To Walk A Fine Line

This is all a prelude to the Town blasting through their Septic Tank agenda that will cost the average homeowners thousands of dollars. When it was boarded up and ugly (look at the CPI) that's ok. Amazing... Mr. Hersh would be smart to get out of this Town..." Jul 27, 12 8:28 AM

ARB Denies MetroPCS Cell Phone Tower Application

Someone tell the ARB that no one cares about this. The Church needs the money, we need the service and I doubt anyone would notice. Once again its government stopping the private sector from doing what it does best. " Jul 27, 12 3:45 PM

Developer Threatens Defamation Suit Against Westhampton Beach Village Attorney

Let's argue about it and leave it the way it looks....between that building and the abandoned gas station across the street, the entrance way to WHB looks brilliant..." Aug 11, 12 1:07 PM

Is Bo Ho Don Ho's brother? Tiny Bubbles......" Aug 13, 12 3:28 PM

MetroPCS And First Presbyterian Church Of Southampton Sue Village Over Clock Tower Ruling

What a waste of taxpayer money. I am glad that Metro PCS has the resources to take on the Village. From previous articles, this will help the church as well as serve the community. Instead of local government saying "how can I help" their attitude is " why should I help you...no" Sad." Sep 10, 12 12:32 PM

Peconic Baykeeper: New East End Water Bodies Classified As Impaired; Old Ones Still On List

Bad Humans.......First it was fertilizer, then rainwater, now septic systems all coming with government mandates that continue to cost the average homeowner extra money and create more government. This is nothing more than job preservation. Thank you ATH for not jumping on that bandwagon...
"we got to pay for our sins" fanatical..." Sep 13, 12 3:03 PM

Promoting an agenda...sorry. Everything comes at a cost. Its easy to ask for things when its not your money. This all comes down to a movement trying to push the town board to legislate septic tank inspections and upgrading....." Sep 13, 12 3:59 PM

Dune Road Breach Widens During Nor'easter

To Sandydog21. The building is EXACTLY why the barrier islands have lasted as long as they have. A desire to preserve ones property has allowed for beach and dune replenishment. If you look at most of the breaches they have occurred where building has not. Take fire island for example. If dredging was not done several years ago, the South Shore of LI would be completely flooded. Building PROTECTS the barrier islands. " Nov 5, 12 11:17 AM

Montauk Hotelier Drops Cesspool Rings On Beach To Protect Business From Upcoming Nor'easter

Smart move....at least he his trying to protect his property as well as his rights as a property owner....I hope it works..." Nov 6, 12 3:50 PM

DEC Estimates Cost To Close Cupsogue Breach At $6 Million; Work Begins This Week

It's amazing that when the powers that be want to do something they can care less about the Piping Plover. While the dredge is there, let the residents of Fire Island pay for dredging (as they did a couple of years ago that saved the mainland) all the way to Jones Inlet. Give everyone the right to protect their property." Nov 16, 12 3:59 PM

Southampton Town Board Approves $24 Million Plan to Widen Beaches In Eastern Half Of Town

To all those that think the beach front owners should foot the bill...YOU ARE RIGHT! The problem is that the governement and environmentalist will not let them. If the property owners would be allowed to protect their homes the way they see fit..it would cost the taxpayers nothing and a better job would get done. Unfortunately the powers that be think they know what's best. They should just stay out of it..." Nov 28, 12 2:00 PM

Judge Grants Order Forcing Temporary Removal Of Vehicles From Speonk Property

i happen to drive by the property on speonk-riverhead road....who cares....leave it to Southampton Town to had out tax bills and question the way people can raise the money. This is a non issue. Waste of taxpayer dollars." Jan 12, 13 4:10 PM

First of all....industrial property. Second of all..if the Town owned it , all would be fine (look at whats going on in Riverhead). It is not a "junkyard". Inspections for leaking oil or any other environmental problems could be addressed. Once again, Nature, you take things to the extreme and never use common sense." Jan 14, 13 7:47 AM

Thank heavens you were not around in the early 1900's. We would not have had an industrial revolution." Jan 14, 13 9:24 AM

Hampton Bays Civic Renews Talks Of Incorporation

Great, now we will get to pay two tax bills..." Jan 22, 13 1:24 PM

Nature, I can't believe it...your last couple of comments I agree with! To form a new government with infrastructure, services, enforcement etc...would be a huge burden. " Jan 22, 13 7:19 PM

Mastic Beach Officials Share Village Incorporation Successes With Hampton Bays Group

Please don't do this. The costs out weigh the benefits. The HB civic association already has input in new projects and zoning issues. Yes there are some problems, but to think that all will be solved if incorporated is flat out wrong. The same issues of invividual Rights, zoning enforcement, land use and taxes will be present. If there is an illegal apartment now, a neighbors phone call to the Town can get it dealt with. Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. Last time I was there, Mastic Beach has the same issues the rest of Brookhaven has.." Jan 29, 13 1:33 PM

Sagaponack and WHD way smaller. WHD was a great move to take on the DEC and National Seashore to save their property. In my opinion, a Hamlet such as Hampton Bays would require much more services, a larger more complete government and infrastructure to serve the residents properly. Both villages you mentioned have few year round residents and could run with a smaller budget. And of course, the Mayor of Mastic Beach is pleased with the outcome...I am not sure the residents of Mastic Beach are all pleased with the outcome...." Jan 29, 13 3:10 PM

Cuomo Calls For LIPA Privatization; Local Lawmakers Suggest A Publicly-Owned Utility

Where is Richie Kessel now? LIPA was nothing but a way for conning Long Islanders. Everyone made money at the expense of the rate payers. Biggest waste of time and money. At least LILCO had to answer to shareholders. " Feb 11, 13 9:36 AM

Westhampton Beach Teachers Reject Proposed Salary Freeze

Whe gets guaranteed salary increases? When asked you are told "well thats what was negotiated". Glad to see they did not want to extend the contract. Hold tight. Cut staff. Everyone for themselves!" Mar 7, 13 2:39 PM

Southampton Trustees Experiment Begins At Mill Pond

How come it is ok to mess with Mother Nature sometimes and other times it is not? I am sure this is fine but if this "experiment" doesn't work or has adverse affects then what? How come homeowners cannot "experiment" with dune replenishment to protect their homes? Seems a little hypocritical to me...." Apr 11, 13 9:13 AM
