Bishop requests funding for East End projects

One 9.3 MM grant for one company is more than the 20+ other grants in total?" Apr 15, 09 2:44 PM

Shellfish woes continue for DEC

Finally, an appropriate use of the money they will collect for the fishing license. The towns that sued to stop the implementation of the license should agree to implement it as long as money collected goes directly to DEC monitoring for the East End. More shellfish = more healthy creeks bays = more fish! " Oct 22, 09 11:30 AM

Workers finish dredging Shinnecock Inlet; project comes in $3 million under budget

The "stockpile" is a wild thing to see firsthand, use Road K to see it best. Its the length of two football fields and 15 feet high - pretty cool. " Jan 15, 10 5:23 PM

Houses on Soundview Drive face off against an angry sea

Temporary rock revetments are the first step down the hard stabilization slippery slope that ultimately leads to bulkheads and no beaches. Good for the DEC in helping us not end up like New Jersey. " Feb 5, 10 11:57 AM

Models show possibility of hurricane impacting East End

Shame on you SH press for flashing such a misleading headline that will serve to hurt local business on the last weekend of summer. No model, even at 12:16 today when this was published showed LI getting hit. Your article then goes on to reference a comment about "uncertainty" in forecasts when hurricanes are 4-5 days out - yet we are only 48 hrs away and have better information!
You are distorting facts to scare people into reading at the expense of businesses that rely on this weekend to help get through the winter. I thought this paper was better." Sep 1, 10 8:54 PM

I respectfully disagree with you Joe - no one has doubted there will be some sort of effect from this storm - that I agree. Yet your headline implies a far stronger degree of severity than the current TROPICAL STORM WATCH issued by the NHC.
To the casual eye - and lets all agree that a headlines purpose is designed to attract the causal eye - the headline leads a reader to believe there are one or more "models" that show an "impact" to the EE. A simple thesaurus search for the word "impact" comes up with "crash", "collision" and "shock". This does not sync with what the NHC is saying AT ALL ABOUT THIS STORM.
No model shows it hitting the east end! Your audience would be served better by a headline that states the facts - A TROPICAL STORM WATCH - a far lower degree of "impact". If you don't update the online version of this story your are clearly more concerned with scaring readers than telling the truth. " Sep 1, 10 11:05 PM

Nature - If it is "almost 100% certain"there will be an impact as you state, why would a headline claim a "possibility"? The answer is to imply knowledge of an outlaying scenario or "models" that show a "possible" direct impact to the east end. This is entirely contrary to the truth and misleading at best.
