Police Say 30-Year-Old Hispanic Man Is Being Sought In Fatal Hit-And-Run; Name Still Not Released

Activisits Sound Off On Noise Reduction Claims At East Hampton Airport

Mr. Brundige is hereby appointed Head Conductor of the "Fiddle While East Hampton Burns" orchestra, which will perform the world premier of the new opera "Stanzione's Folly" at the East Hampton airport on Friday afternoon from 5 PM to 7 PM, rain or shine. The deafening roar of the incoming and departing aircraft will provide a random and avant-garde backdrop to the music, if one can hear it.

"Stanzione's Folly" is a brilliant new work, composed over a period of years it would appear, and contains five movements:

I. Promiso Presto
II. Retracto Regresso
III. Scramblo Scherzo
IV. Apologiso Profundo
V. Ex Officio Hasta la Vista!

[The last movement is very long, and may not be performed in its entirety on Friday.]

Composer Stanzione is also expected to read from a new work of prose, which paraphrases a line from the character played by Robert Duvall in Apocalypse Now:

"I love the smell of jet fuel, and deafening noise, in the late afternoon."

Composer Stanzione will recite this line just as the loudest chopper lands during "Stanzione's Folly" on Friday night. The text of this line is printed here, as a public service, because no one will be able to hear a word he says during its recitation.

Suspect In Fatal Water Mill Hit-and-Run Remains Elusive; Cops Reveal Where Car Was Found

Article updated at 11:58 AM --

According to the article, the police have the suspect's name and photo.

WHY WHY WHY, almost a week after the fact, will they not release this information?

Editor and Ms. Reynolds, please GRILL Chief Wilson on his very specific "investigative reasons" for withholding the name and photo. Let's see if he has a LOGICAL AND COGENT set of reasons. Please MAKE him refuse to go into any further detail, and make him say why this continues to be justified.

Mind-boggling!" Jul 18, 12 12:23 PM

Today is July 20th.

The accident was on July 9th.

Everyone can do the math.

If Chief Wilson does not release the suspect's photo and name before the weekend, or provide a full explanation of what the "heck" is going on, it would be surprising. If the suspect has already escaped from the country, it surely will be interesting to hear the "investigative reasons" for permitting his escape, due to a conscious decision NOT to ask the public for help.

Further words of outrage are stifled for now." Jul 20, 12 1:42 AM

UPDATE: Suffolk County Crime Stoppers Offers Up To $5,000 Reward For Information Leading To Arrest Of Hit-And-Run Suspect

banina81, your post is on the 12th day after the accident. Maybe the PD has a "jump" on the suspect at the very beginning, but didn't that advantage fade out after a day or two?

Plus you are assuming that the "bunch of calls" from the public would have been counterproductive.

What about a call from a relative or friend who knew EXACTLY where the suspect was. How could this person have known that his or her friend/relative was wanted, if they did not know WHO THE SUSPECT WAS, or even that a crime had been commited? Not everyone reads 27east or the newspapers (incl. Post which had a few articles also)." Jul 21, 12 12:05 PM

Head-On County Road 39 Crash Backs Up Traffic For More Than Six Hours

That's the ticket EE68.

PAVE THE HAMPTONS!

Actually it would probably be cheaper to continue the William Floyd Parkway south into the ocean as an elevated six-lane causeway, then turn east parallel to the shoreline, carrying on to Montauk Point, Block Island, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Cape Cod, and then to Boston (with exits at various intermediate points). At the various inlets and deep sea shipping channels, the roadway could be elevated to allow ships underneath, or it could go underground similar to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.

Picture the causeway from Miami to Key West. It is a beautiful drive!

Yes, that's the ticket! No need to pave the Hamptons, just build the Shirley to Boston Causeway, and they will come.

PS -- Windmills could be placed on all the roadway towers to generate juice for the oceanfront hotels, condo's etc. which could be built on the coast. Nice!" Jul 26, 12 5:07 PM

Drug Task Force Announces Felony Drug Arrest

Recreational drug use has existed for millennia. Treat the same as alcohol and prescription drugs. Tax and regulate. The rich simply get Rx drugs at will from a doctor, a luxury the middle class and poor cannot afford.

Gov. Rockefeller sent thousands to prison in the 60's almost FIFTY years ago. Look at all the results that produced in reducing drug use. Not!

Keep criminal actions which you think drugs "cause" and recognize that drugs do not cause any crime. Humans cause crime! To demonstrate sit next to a bag of cocaine and see if it causes you to DO anything. What? The bag is still sitting next to you?

The "solution" of prison is a mirage. " Aug 11, 12 12:59 PM

"they are doing the best they can" ???

Sure, just like the fiddle section while Rome burned ......

Just like the deck crew of the Titanic rearranging deck chairs .....

Just like the 50,000 of our friends and families who died in Vietnam ......

Sure, send in more troops to Iraq and Afghanistan to fight wars which can't be won .... What is the body count so far including all combatants and civilians? .....

Our efforts to reduce drug use have FAILED !!!!!

They have failed for FIFTY years !!!

When is everyone going to wake up?

Keep On Fiddlin' I guess.

Without East Hampton Town's Help, Three Mile Harbor Mobile Home Park Will Pay To Renovate Failing Septic System

Welcome to EH Town's method of balancing the budget.

Avoid responsibility for a decade for what is in part a public problem, and dump the financial burden On the shoulders of those who can ill-afford it!

This is real "trickle-down" economics, and if you wonder just where the trickle-down part is, just look on the ground near the old septic "system" after a heavy rain!

Yup the you-know-what just trickled down and hit the fan, er, groundwater.

Some "trick" to balancing the Town budget, eh?

A great de facto demonstration of the qualitative changes that ARE POSSIBLE if the EH Town Board WANTS them.

Note Maestro Dom's defensive posture that HE did not order this covertly! You can't make this stuff up I swear.

The hubris and Stanzione's Folly will of course still play out, to everyone's growing discomfort.

Hopefully the fiddle section of the Chopper Brigade will bring an Apocalypse Now noise invasion solely to NW this weekend, so that reality hits home about just how oppressive the noise has been.

Pilots start your engines.
