Congressional candidate Cox joins anti-abortion activists in protest at Bishop's office

First of all, HW, I never used the word "Republican." You just did. I mentioned conservatives and teabaggers! Are you saying all Republicans are conservative &/or teabaggers?
All one had to do was pay a nano-second's worth of attention to the health care debate to see where political division lay. Same on "defense" spending (notice I use quotes around the word "defense" because I'm not against defense but half the crap used by some under the heading "defense" because it's hard to justify being "against 'defense'" if that's the label used, isn't it?
You don't even know me and yet you've painted me as a coward (I presume that's what "yellow belt" means?), someone who does not or is incapable of thinking for myself. And I guess if you say I go to cocktail parties that means you think I'm rich.
I guess that means I am now entitled to call you ignorant.

Throne-Holst: No layoffs in 2011 tentative budget

It sure is difficult to please this bunch!!! ATH appears to have presented a budget with a minor increase in taxes, ALL of which will go to reducing deficit created by irresponsible prior administrations. And with no layoffs to boot!
I guess if the biggest thing to complain about is a $4,000 raise to the head of a newly organized department, then it sounds like nitpicking to me.
The other thing reported by someone is an apparent lack of honest dealings by Benincasa. If that is so, I urge you to report it to the Suffolk County DA. If you don't, then shame on you and please don't bring up someone's honesty (or lack) again. Thank you." Oct 2, 10 8:10 PM

Altschuler balks; debate with Bishop canceled

If Altschuler blows off the people of a working class community like Hampton Bays while he is a candidate for office, then can you believe how dead we will be to him if elected. Between DC, NJ and Mumbai, we would probably never see him live only in re-election ads like now.
Bishop is one of us. He grew up here. He stayed here until we sent him to DC. He always shows up to local events and civic type things when asked unless he has a conflict and then his office is very good at trying to arrange alternate dates. We would be nuts to throw him out especially to replace him with a guy too gutless or scared to show up here. Maybe he can't talk to "We the People" and knows we will smell his elitist a** a mile away." Oct 12, 10 7:41 PM

Quote the source of your comment that "...the constitution clearly states that the founders believed in Jesus the savior." I don't think Jesus is mentioned in any context whatsoever.
But I do like to be accurate, so correct me if I am wrong.
Please do not reply that the founders were all Christian. That is not the point. The point is you want to strictly interpret the Constitution and claim Jesus is in there. I think not." Oct 13, 10 12:53 PM

Clashing ideas about jobs dominate congressional race

During much of the 1990's and early 2000's, Republicans WERE in charge of BOTH houses. From 1995 through 2007, BOTH houses of Congress were controlled by Republicans and from 2001-2009, the White House was occupied by a Republican.
How in God's good name can ANYONE expect the GOP to help clear up the mess when much of it was created on their watch. " Oct 15, 10 4:03 PM

Altschuler, Bishop Will Take Part In Campaign Event On Thursday

I'm happy for the voters. I am also happy for the Hampton Bays Civic Association. They have had candidates debates every year for as long as anyone can remember. Anyone know how long it has been? It would have been a shame if the two congressional candidates did not show up." Oct 18, 10 3:43 PM

Canoe Place Inn Developers Terminate Lease With Nightclub Owners

I still say if this were any place else in the Hamptons, people would respect the history of the building and try to get it preserved. Sad." Nov 1, 10 1:22 PM

Housing Director Back In Town's Cross-hairs

Have you tried Town & Country Garden Apts on Montauk Hway near Villa Paul's? Their apts are nice and I don't think they are as expensive as the one you have now." Nov 8, 10 4:52 PM

Woman Struck By Car On Montauk Highway In Hampton Bays

Didn't someone get killed crossing there a year or two or three ago? I think it was at night.
I know that stretch of road has a lot of accidents.
The town just lowered the speed limit to 30mph in much of downtown HB. I think it should be 25 like in other downtowns and maybe until people get used to it they could have one of those electronic signs there that tell you how fast you are going.
People get off 27 or 24 with those higher speed limits and it takes them awhile to adjust mentally to lower speed." Nov 13, 10 4:40 PM

Despite Objections, Southampton Town Board Appoints OTB Official To Top Management Post

Whether the Ethics Board can or will do anything about this fiasco is not all-important. Those of us who are outraged should write letters to them demanding an inquiry.
At least later the gang of three won't be able to say no one was upset enough to report them.
Also, does anyone know if there State and Fedl laws about this kind of behavior? Can someone find out to what government agencies we can complain and ask for a serious investigation. Maybe these thugs will be censured, impeached, fined or even jailed. Wouldn't that be justice they understand. Bullies only understand bigger bullies." Dec 6, 10 9:13 PM

New Southampton Town Appointee Once Sued Over Firing

The gang of three aren't out of their minds hiring this man. They know which side of the bread their butter is on!
As a party that has long held key patronage jobs at all levels in all areas of government, the GOP makes its people toe the line or else. If truth be told, I am 100% confident Nuzzi, Graboski & Malone were TOLD to hire him. They may be term-limited but that doesn't mean their days of public "service" (Ha! Ha!) are over. They must go-along to get-along. My guess? Graboski is running for Supervisor and Nuzzi has been promised a big job west of Southampton in Suffolk County. They just can't make any mistakes (i.e. make any independent decisions) between now and then.

Maybe he could also pull a "Kratoville" and his wife could sue for loss of conjugal performance.

Westhampton Beach Police Officer Takes Stand In Kabot DWI Trial

I have one question: I read the officers were overheard saying "We got her" on the phone at the scene. This would indicate a set-up of some kind. Has this been confirmed and by whom?" Feb 1, 11 8:15 PM

Southampton Town Holds First Public Forum On Hampton Bays Study

I was there and I think most speakers mentioned that the ZBA routinely supercededs Town Law by granting outrageous variances.
For example, accessory apartments are only supposed to be allowed on lots over 30,000 square feet. The DGEIS says that future accessory apts will not be an issue since smaller lot sizes exist in Hampton bays.
The DGEIS neglects to say that the ZBA has already approved apts on tiny lots.
Why isn't the SHP reporting this?" Feb 10, 11 12:37 PM

Fire Districts Could Save By Using Town Dispatch

Hampton Bays residents pay more taxes to the "volunteer" Fire Dept than to the "salaried" police dept. Then how galling to see them hang up of the SHP when queried.
The HBFD should realize that, since they receive public funds, they are OBLIGATED to answer for themselves when legitimately asked. I think questions from the Press fall into the legitimate category.
The problem is, many people are afraid to question the HBFD aloud. " Mar 8, 11 11:32 AM
