Riverhead man stabbed to death in front of Hampton Bays Diner

How about some simpathy for Calvin. His life was stolen from him. Regardless if his murderers were in gangs or not they obviously bad people. I've lived here all my life. I love it here. However, unfortunately there are gangs. Bad do things do happen. Bad things happen everywhere!! And for all of you that are saying to close down the Boardy Barn and the rest of nightclubs, just remember that our communities depend on the revenue. Do not blame the establishments. What would us locals do if it didn't get busy in the summer with summer people. We would all be struggling. Once again, this is a tragedy. A few of my friends knew Calvin and I am praying for all of his friends and family at this time. I hope all of you pointing fingers soon realize that the only people to blame are the murderers.

I AM SO SICK OF ALL OF THE RACISM! and it disgusts me that every single person in here posting ignorant, racist, and finger pointing comments are all locals! For the last time, he was not in a gang! He did not desreve this! The Boardy Barn has nothing to do with it! There will ALWAYS be stupid people soing destructuive and stupid things. Shutting down all of the clubs and bars is only going to make this place suck! It's going to ruin our economy and ultimately our community. And not for nothing, but I am a local my whole life. I'm in my 20's and am a very productive member of our society here in the Hamptons. I am also a patron of the Boardy Barn, Beach Bar, and the Drift. Not everyone that attends these establishments are bad people out to cause trouble. And not everyone that goes to the Diner at 4 a.m. is looking to start something. On a number of occassions I have been there late night after going out. Although the food does suck and I never eat there unless I'm coming home from drinking I do not believe it is the problem. It's not like this has EVER happened there before. But you're all acting like this is a COMMON situation! As for the police force, they work extremely hard, and do the best they can. Lay off! RIP Calvin." May 26, 09 10:57 PM

Westhampton Beach trustee, blogger spar over residency issues

Speir was just worried that the election wasn't going in the direction he wanted it to. Hank is absolutely right, it was extremely distasteful to pull out this list on the day of the election. He's just trying to stir the pot abd have something to blog about!" Sep 4, 09 6:37 PM

Town housing officials walk out of civics meeting in East Quogue

I don't understand why people are so against this! Affordable housing is desperately needed ot here. I am 21 and grew up in East Quogue my whole life. I have always worked and always paid for everything myself. I've been living on my own since last summer, but affording a decent appartment out here is impossible. Thank god a friend found me a really nice place in East Moriches, but had it not been for him I would've been screwed.

It's not fair that young people around my age who work hard and want to stay living in their hometowns can't because it is so expensive!! The people involved need to realize that if you push us out now, many of us may not come back. In 20 years when everyone in this town is old and retiring, and there are no new businesses opening, becuase there are no young families, its going to become a retirement community.

The younger residents that grea up here and went through the school systems deserve a fair chance and reasonable way to afford staying here!" Oct 1, 09 7:47 AM

Tymann defeat mocked at cemetery that clashed with Southampton Town Trustees

I am absolutely disgusted by this childish display. Whoever put it up should be ashamed of themselves. Brian Tymann is a great man and cares deeply for his community. This whole cemetary debate has gotten a little ridiculous; and it is NOT Brian's fault! Let politics be politics; but it's very sad when people go out of their way to hurt others. Its bad enough that he didn't win. Leave it at that. And to whoever did this, supports this, and/or did not take it down...GROW UP!" Nov 11, 09 11:16 PM

Body washes ashore on Plum Island

GE1008, I am not going to argue that sex offenders are a huge issue... but that has NOTHING to do with this story. Lets not start everyone ranting and raving politics when it has nothing to do with this man's death." Jan 17, 10 11:51 AM

Westhampton Beach St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee schedules fund-raiser

First of all, it looks like you live in Sag Harbor so what do you care?! Second of all, many of my personal friends spend alot of time and energy trying to put together the parade every year so that this community doesnt turn into the retirement home that people like you want it to become. Let us have our fun! I look forward to this parade every year. It's symbolic of the end of the long winter and puts summer in our sights. This has absolutely NOTHING to do with politics, or Haiti for that matter. You cant live your life criticizing everyone and being such a downer. Cheer up, have a drink, and maybe enjoy the fun that people around you are trying to have!" Feb 23, 10 8:27 PM

First of all, I never called you an outsider. I just said since you dont live here, you should mind your business because you obviously dont understand the wonderful community we have here besides the stupid politics! Second of all, I donated as much as I COULD to Haiti so don't you dare tell me I dont look at the world. You don't know me. But you obviously think you know what Westhampton is all about and you do not. Do not try and tell me that REAL life gets dismissed. Before you judge people maybe you should consider the fact that you do not know them or their personal situations. Fun is a way to forget your own and the world's problems for a little bit. Not everyone likes to dwell in the negative. Third, we do not rely on YOU, Nellie, for anything. This is why we are having a fundraiser so that people who want to support the parade are free to do so. And I am going to eat, drink, dance, and be extremely merry on that day because myself and the rest of the Year Round people in my community work damn hard all year and deserve a break and a celebration!"

Police cite 21 on drug charges at Neptune Beach Club over holiday weekend

GoldenBoy, BaymenNYC, G, and Infoseeker are all on the right track. There are always going to be a few idiots that will ruin it for other people... but lets not let their recklessness turn this town into a retirement home. I live here year round and work hard all winter and especially all summer. I love being able to live in an area as nice as this. And, I love the being able to go to the Drift and the Barn and have a good time with my friends when i am not working. Stop trying to shut it down. It's only going to be bad for business." Jun 4, 10 11:03 PM

Jean, you are absolutely right! the cabs are ridiculous. Every time I go out I have no choice but to factor in at least $40 just for a cab ride from the Drift in EQ to WHB. And trying to get a ride home, unless you have a group of 6 or more, is almost impossible because they will not leave the bars unless they have a full van going to the same destination. Its so frustrating!! I do agree with the puking thing tho, thats disgusting and if i had to ride around in that smell all night i would have a heart attack and would charge more as well.

So many of the cab drivers that come out do not have a permit to be working the area which is also a problem. They treat us all like we're summer city people and that we all have the money to pay any fare they want. They also have no idea where anything is. I tried giving the driver simple directions to get me to my address in WHB right off of Montauk Hwy and he had to pull over 2 blocks from my street to finally put it in his GPS, all the while yelling at me that I told him the wrong directions!!"

Parties are at odds over date of Westhampton Beach Halloween parade

They can't do it on Halloween because it is a school event and the children gather after classes at the schools to start the parade. This is ridiculous! The parade is absolutely adorable and is a nice event for our community. If the business owners on Main St have forgotten, it is October! The big weekend summer rush is over and it's mostly locals here now. I work at a business on Mill Road and the Parade is something we all look forward to every year. We all dress up and hand out tons of candy to all of the kids. We do also have to close 2 hours early. But it's worth it. The kids love it, the parents love it, and we love it. Main Street may lose some business for and hour and a half but what about all the business they can gain by participating! The parents of the children participating are patrons of many of the local businesses already. This is a great oppertunity to reach out and remind people why they should love our cute village. We all need to keep supporting each other and the children. Cannot believe something as fun and silly as a Halloween Parade has caused such a stir." Oct 14, 10 8:20 PM

Vampire Weekend, Bright Eyes Will Headline MTK Festival

Ok, yes it is pretty pricey...but i think this is a great idea and something very much needed out on this end of the island. And actually, there are a lot of really cool bands in the lineup. if you are 50, i'm sorry, no, you probably have never heard of any of them...but don't discredit the event just based on that. If you have an appreciation for different kinds of music you may just be presently surprised :)" May 9, 11 11:45 PM

Hours After Graduation, Quiogue Teen Killed In Single-Car Accident; Driver Charged With DWI

This is so sad and horrible. They are good boys. This did not deserve to happen to either one of them. My wishes and prayers go out to all families involved." Jun 27, 11 10:23 AM

Police Chief: Officers Had Probable Cause To File DWI Charges In East Quogue Fatality

They said it initially, jumping the gun, because they found an open bottle in the car. It was not Taylor's. All of the drug and alcohol tests on Taylor came back 100% negative. " Jul 20, 11 5:35 PM

Westhampton Beach Lifeguard Quits After Being Denied Permission To Respond To Fire Alarm

Jimmy Raynor should be applauded for all that he brings to this community. He is a hard working man and is following proudly in his father's footsteps. The fact that such an issue was made out of nothing is ridiculous. Those men that called the mayor obviously had alterior motives against Jimmy. I am very disappointed in Connie's actions concerning this manner. Jimmy did nothing wrong. It's sad to see a good lifeguard go." Aug 24, 11 6:59 PM
