School Officials in Westhampton Beach, Remsenburg-Speonk Will Try To Avoid Piercing Cap

Isn't it about the kids though? Or is it about the excessive benefit packages. But wait- the School Board Presidents family is the largest vendor for the district and how many teachers spouses have been represented on the school board? No. It's about the kids." Jan 28, 13 7:47 PM

Attorney In Westhampton Beach Censured Due To Deed Error

This guys on the School Board. I would think an immediate resignation is in order. I'm sure the entire School Board would agree. Time to go. " Jan 30, 13 6:23 PM

Bridgehampton School Is Not Ruling Out Piercing 2-Percent Tax Levy Cap

I see we have a potential treacher responding. Please get real. The benefits and retirement are crazy. We as a community are unable to support it. How many times do I see retire teachers moving south where the cost of living is so much cheaper. That high cost of living up here is a result of taxes and the vast majority of my taxes go to the schools and the schools explaine it as teacher benefits. Pay my taxes and I'll agree with you. " Feb 1, 13 7:03 PM

Correct - But at 2pm on a summer day I see a lot of teachers at the beach. They want the high pay then work a full year and a full day without all the vacations. I'm tired of paying for someone else's wealth." Feb 1, 13 7:06 PM

Westhampton Beach School Board Holds First Of Several Budget Hearings

Can we do any decreases? Increasing in buses and building? When was the last time the bus contract was bid out? Audited? or do they have a lock for life?" Feb 13, 13 7:27 AM

Police: TD Bank Customers Targeted In Skimmer Scam

Sounds like 3 things need to be done. 1. Bank needs to step up efforts on these crimes. Although TD seems one of the best with cameras and security. So that leads to 2nd item. 2. Cops need to do their patrolling better and be more visible on the streets and not hanging out in one area. And. 3. General public needs to protect their info better when using the machines- I think the bank can advise on this. " Feb 13, 13 8:07 PM

No- the cops should be more visible around town. That would deter crime. Go down onto Dune Rd and see where they spend their time. How many cops on on the WHB force and how many do you see around town? When was the last time you saw the Chief? Also look up any study on prevention of crime and you will see police presence plays a major role. Think before you comment" Feb 14, 13 8:19 AM

LaValle Calls For School Property Tax Cap For Seniors

I think dagdavid should pick up the tax bill for Chief and myself. Im with the Chief. I cant afford all these welfare programs anymore. " Feb 14, 13 2:31 PM

Westhampton Beach Village Board Delays Five Budget Transfers

The Mayor states "he shakes his head"? I shake my head at his actions. You would think he would welcome the truth and thank his Trustee for uncovering an error in stead of whitewashing it. I wonder what else can be identified???" Feb 15, 13 2:55 PM

East Hampton Village To Appoint Rebecca Molinaro New Administrator

Mayor Teller should resign and leave next. His sweetheart deals to the Police Chief awarded him a windfall pay package, job to a family member, and now over $6,600 in over pay. I cant believe each will not step down. Isnt there something illegal about a law enforcement officer accepting monies he knows is not due him?? And the Mayor is upset some Village taxpayers are questioning his judgement- Time to resign Mayor!" Feb 16, 13 10:26 AM

If Mr Tucker and crew exposes these people then more power to them. As a taxpayer in WHB the Mayor needs to go. Enough with his antics. " Feb 17, 13 1:48 PM

Four More Say They Are Victims Of Skimmer Scam At Westhampton Beach Bank

Sounds like we need to get Suffolk or Southampton Police involved. Over WHB heads. Hasnt this happened before in WHB? Better Police presence is a possible answer. Unfortunately the Mayor and Chief apparently would rather hide in their offices. " Feb 20, 13 8:48 AM

Westhampton Beach Asks Its Teachers To Accept Salary Freeze

I would like to see the School Board address the performance of the teachers and know why these kids come home and speak about watching movies in their class instead of learning. Think about it- a french class watching Schreck- and not even in French. One example." Feb 27, 13 7:49 AM

Possibly- but- how will they compete in word arena. This is what they have to think about- not even mentioning some of the Nassau County Schools which are consistantly at the top of NY standards. Betcha they are not watching these movies. Out performing locally is simple. Dare to be the best." Feb 27, 13 2:09 PM

Now I see where Mr Z is coming from. An prior athlete. The schools are for all children not just the athletes. Chief is correct on the percent earning athlethic scholarships and why kids are out of shape today. The schools first priority is to teach. They are there to learn. Not for the dream of being a sports star which by the way the percentage of population getting this is way less then 2%. If the Athletes want more money spent on the sports programs let them pay for it privately. Why use my tax dollers for there pie in the sky dreams. An educated society is what this country needs."

Westhampton Beach Teachers Reject Proposed Salary Freeze

To the School Board. Remember with your statement about "funding the programs" that its the tax payers who fund the programs whether it comes directly from the area tax roles or the State aid or lack therof. Its time the Teachers Union gets in step. Stay strong against them." Mar 7, 13 12:23 PM

Westhampton Beach Police Investigate Alleged Teacher Misconduct

It also appears to me Chief1 is trying to intimidate the girls by his prior statements into not reporting what they thought was inappropriate behavior by this teacher. You go girls and stand tough. Dont let guys like this bully you into not speaking the truth and reporting what you witnessed." Mar 7, 13 3:29 PM

Attorney Accuses Westhampton Beach Village Trustees Of Altering Audit

Three problems. 1. Why did the Mayor contact the auditing firm over the weekend to see if there were any "red flags"? Especially if he did not want the report in the first place. I would think by not wanting it he was confident in there being nothing found. 2. The Mayors statement "the Village finances was in good standing" is not correct as Tucker found he was approving monies- to people that were not due. Luckily the Mayor got the money back AFTER the error was found. and 3. What is in that Police Chiefs contract? Wouldnt the Mayor who helped draft it- and the Police Chief who was certainly knowledable of its contents- know he was not due the $6,600 in buy-back vacation pay? I think both the Mayor and Chief have some explaining to do and it should be investigated by an outside Police Commissioner and the Justice Dept. " Mar 13, 13 3:28 PM

Westhampton Beach Teachers Reject Proposed Salary Freeze

Let the teachers go- My taxes are going up anyway and will ultimately be less without all the teachers. Also, possibly we can consolidate the schools and close one and sell the other off. Better all around for taxpayers in the long run. The population on LI is decreasing. It would be wise planning now to start eliminating some teacher position. The back of the union needs to be broken!" Mar 18, 13 3:30 PM

UPDATE: Police Believe Teacher Recorded Students With Cellphone; Released After Posting $25,000 Bail

Stolen Phone- please. So many rushed to defend this guy and now some are trying to blane it on a stolen phone. Give the State Police more credit then that and be glad its in their hands. They will get to the bottom of this. " Mar 20, 13 12:00 PM

Westhampton Beach Teachers Reject Proposed Salary Freeze

You are the ignotant one. Less students= less teachers= less need for school buildings and adminstraters= less taxes. Much of the district is also supported by the Summer people paying the taxes and not taxing the school system. Dont think its just the feeder students supporting this school." Mar 20, 13 12:04 PM

UPDATE: Police Believe Teacher Recorded Students With Cellphone; Released After Posting $25,000 Bail

May be you can explain why the administration will get sued for doing the right thing and bringing an alleged incident to the attention of the authorities. They did the right thing and should be commended for it. " Mar 21, 13 8:31 AM
