Westhampton Beach St. Patrick's Day Parade attracts record number of bystanders

the 'officer hurt . . . ' article that hamptoniteforlife refers to is no longer accepting or showing comments

a lot of work goes into putting on the parade, by the organiziers & area businesses. the organizers were certainly not giving/selling drinks to teenagers, they were trying to create more of a family environment.
it is always a hard call with kids & large groups of people & alcohol. with my kids, we get in, see what we came to see and get out, before things get out of hand.

Code enforcement shuts down soup kitchen at Southampton Tire

I grew up in an area with many migrant agricultural workers. it was not unusual for them to come to our house and ask if we could spare some food.
I was raised to make a sandwich from whatever we had in the fridge, and give it to them (granted, my sandwich making skills were not all that!!)
giving a sandwich to a hungry person, where ever they are from, is the right thing to do

North of HIghway,

I read that book as well, but forgot whether the people infected on the first, less severe round fared better or worse when the virus morphed - do you have that info?

been curious about it since this flu started, but can't find the book ;-)

Southampton Village Police launch internal investigation into inappropriate computer use

Parties are at odds over date of Westhampton Beach Halloween parade

also love the parade, but understand that in this economy Friday is better than Thursday, and that could be the difference in payroll.
this was brought up too close to the date of parade, now it can be worked out for next year" Oct 14, 10 10:34 PM

Project Open Vista: Clearing For A Clear View

people also pay taxes to funds that protect areas like this from being disturbed - the value of a 'view' is greater than appreciating the natural landscape?" Dec 10, 10 10:06 AM

you are right, that was likely the case just after I wrote.
still, wildlife does use the invasive & non-native for food and shelter, and it will keep growing back." Dec 13, 10 10:21 AM
