Southampton Elementary School principal faces uncertain future

Hamptonite, Lefty46 and others, you must not have had to deal with Dr. Boyes. He actually has a set of balls, unlike Southampton's previous Super, who was looking for a pair. I doubt that Dr. Boyes is influenced by disgrunted, obnoxious parents either. From what I have witnessed, he is actually making a considered opinion with regard to an employee. He could have set Mrs. Richard loose (there are probably some on the Board of Education who wished he would), but instead he is opting to give her another year to prove herself. It takes more than being greeted by a smile and a hug to merit being paid nearly $130,000.00 a year by the taxpayers to corral a bunch of kids and over paid and under worked teachers, you need a true administrator -- someone who is more than up to the task of handling the day to day grind of being responsive to the students, parents, teachers and community and planning for the future--I think that Mrs.Richard is fortunate if she is given another year to improve and prove herself.

Money designated for affordable housing never moved; housing fund in the red

Get darker before it gets lighter -- and on whose watch! Ms. Kabot may not have been the Superviser all the time, but she was in office. I don't know how that woman can get up in the morning and look at herself in the mirror. This looks like it is only going to get worse -- we will be as bad off as East Hampton Town before we know it.

Southampton Elementary School principal faces uncertain future

INS, I hope your comment is not an endorsement of the great job our Town Supervisor is doing. I do agree, however, that there is something wacky about the assessment numbers and corresponding tax liabilty. " May 11, 09 12:32 AM

State seizes La Hacienda restaurant for delinquent taxes

Are we not suprised??? Let's face it, the proprietors of La Hacienda are not USA born Americans (although their children probably are). They have fed off our system for many years without a problem: why shoud they have to pay sales and withholding tax now? It saddens me as I hoped that this particular establishment was different, but obviously not. " Jul 10, 09 12:09 AM

Local Tea Party movement holds two rallies on Tax Day

Peoplefirst, you are wrong. My family's income was less than $250,000 in 2009 (in fact it was just about the same as in 2008) and we paid more (nearly $3,000 more) to the Federal government than in 2008. Remarkably, the taxes paid to NYS were about the same for both years, but I don't believe that will hold true for this year. " Apr 27, 10 10:40 AM

Southampton principal and assistant principal to fill East Hampton spots

Fine and Mondini let everyone down. Their wallets will probably be fuller for this. Southampton should be happy to be rid of them. Don't blame the School Board, they were used.
