More Than 100 Arrests Being Reviewed By D.A. After Two Are Released

They test either once a year, OR when an incident happens that waarants it. More testing if they work for Home Depot." May 30, 12 3:41 PM

Legislature Renames Theodore Roosevelt County Park To Montauk County Park

Well said, by both TianaBob, and Funbeer. Our political hacks are not concerned by the fact that they are destroying our future, but trivial situations like this get voted on. I hope nobody tells them that Jackie Robinson never played for the mets, otherwise they might force the team owners to rename the homage to him at citifield." Jun 6, 12 7:01 PM

Pre-Dawn Raids In Hampton Bays Prompt Complaints

"wake people up early in the morning and force them to let you into their homes in a non-criminal case is not American"

Thats okay Sister Moore, neither were the occupants. Ask the residence how law enforcement would operate in this scenario in their respective homelands, and I'm pretty sure they'd rather have it done this way." Jun 8, 12 10:24 PM

"All businesses in Hampton Bays should have Spanish signs-it should be required"
By your line of reasoning all workers shoulld be obligated to speak english and spanish. However, there are more than a few workers in Hampton Bays who cost their employers money due to not being able to communicate with English speaking patrons. Should the customer be obligated to learn spanish, or vice-versa? (that's a rhetorical question, as the answer should be obvious)" Jun 12, 12 4:22 PM

Your statement, baywoman, is pure speculation. If there are 80 people living there, you think that only 5 of them are not home at seven? The FACT is that at the early hours of the morning is generally the time that most people are in their homes. If most people were home at one in the afternoon, the raids would have been then. Plus by catching the residents while they sleep, it takes away the defense of them claiming that they don't live their, but are just visiting a friend. Use your head. " Jun 12, 12 4:32 PM

It was not a yes/no question, EastEnd. The question is, "who is responsible for making an effort to communicate with the other, the worker or the patron?" If you're suggesting that customers should learn the language of the workers at a store, than why have signs in spanish at the DMV, Social Security, Soocial Services, Hospitals, Police Stations and other critical "english speaking" instituations?"

Hampton Bays Students Urge School Board To Keep Spanish Teacher

"There are a lot of other teachers doing far less in the district that needs to go."
I agree, but the union is so strong that it gives the less effective teachers impunity from job performance issues. It's alot easier to fire those who aren't protected by the union, ie the teachers/aides without tenure. Keep voting for those who help the unions get stronger and this practice is what you'll see increasingly in every workplace." Jun 13, 12 6:32 PM

"in the past 3 years, 1 black teacher was fired, 4 Hispanics were fired"

There were also white teachers fired. Just because you'd like to prove a point doesnt mean you should omit the facts." Jun 14, 12 2:22 PM

Overturned Camper On Sunrise Highway In Hampton Bays Snarls Traffic For Miles

How did the truck end up on the guard rail if the trailer simply got disconnected? I heard this accident happen, and was on the scene before the cops, but this articles description of it doesn't make sense. Read the article again, and than look at the pics--something doesn't look right." Jun 19, 12 8:01 AM

"State Police... said Mr. Hawaldar maintained control of his truck after the bar broke, but the camper he was towing veered sideways and flipped"

That is obviously NOT what happened if he ended up are the guard rail." Jun 22, 12 1:12 PM

I agree with you local born and raised, however the term "maintained control" is misleading. But is the trailer breaks lose and the truck keeps going, shouldn't by the laws of physics, the trailer fall further behind the truck and decrease the chances of the two making contact?" Jun 23, 12 12:49 PM

If he wasn't towing a trailer and ended up like that, the term "maintained control" wouldn't be applicable, correct?" Jun 23, 12 12:51 PM

My point, Mr Z, was that the truck brushed into the guardrail BEFORE the trailer became detached. Don't try to be smug, I was trying to let people understand that this accident did NOT happen how the press reported it. I was on the scene, and heard the driver describe it IN HIS OWN WORDS. Your cockiness is not warranted in this scenario.

Simply stunning." Jun 26, 12 2:29 PM

Vandals May Be To Blame For Missing Memorial Honoring Samantha LeBrun

I can see both sides of the arguement, and it got me thinking. Imagine this--every pedestrian fatality and car accident resulting in death now gets a five foot stretch of right of way near their accident for a memorial, regardless of who owns the property. If this was the case over the last 20 years there would be memorials everywhere. I do not mean to take away from the family's grieving process but after 8 years they should have been able to give her a proper memorial at an appropriate location." Jun 30, 12 2:18 PM

Inspectors Issue More Than 100 Violations At Converted Motel Properties In Hampton Bays

Sylvia Baruch stated, "The immigrant population, some of whom are undocumented, need a special kind of care."

I believe what she means is "a different standard in our society to which they should be held." Treat them all the same as my family would be treated if we were to be in violation of the law." Jul 6, 12 1:32 PM

Bayman Says Shots Fired From Reservation; Shinnecocks Demand Baymen Stay Away

Cochise, not shooting at someone is not a high standard to live up to-- It's something that should be second nature. The fact that some people want to hold the entire shinnecock community responsible is because that community won't allow law enforcement to hold it's members accountable, because they say it is their right to self-govern. By this line of rationale they SHOULD be disciplining their members (which they refuse to do) Since our law enforcement officials are not allowed to, than the respomsibility falls squarely on ALL of the members of the tribe, period." Jul 9, 12 6:34 PM

interesting scenario, warrior. I betcha if the baymen shot back, they'd be arrested." Jul 9, 12 6:36 PM

New York Knicks' Jason Kidd Charged With DWI In Water Mill

EastEnd, shame on you.

You'd sing a different tune if he ran over one of your family members. This guys makes millions, and he's not smart enough to get a cab? (or for his money, a limo) I don't care what team you root for, this should not be tolerable. Peirod." Jul 16, 12 5:49 AM

Protesters Turn Out At Romney Fundraiser On Meadow Lane

phil stated, "If you don't wantto pay your taxes,don't.
Just be prepared for the consequences;you may end up as someone's girlfriend."

Either that, OR you could be made the secretary of treasury." Jul 18, 12 10:45 PM
