Massive fish kill reported at Mill Pond

There was a slew of dead fish down at the Shinnecock Canal. " Sep 23, 08 8:19 PM

Gasoline prices are still inflated here, despite new law

Don't worry Rep Tim Bishop is looking into it. At least that is what he promised when he first ran. No problem just like North Sea Citizen I too have always done my food shopping in Riverhead and went on an empty tank. Between the gas and not shopping at King Kullen I have saved enough money each year to pay for a trip to LV and a cruise every year for my wife and myself.

In the infamous law suit against Hampton Bays by the developers of the McDonalds and Stop n Shop it was proven in court that King Kullen charges 20% more on "off circular items" than it does in its other stores west of the Hamptons. We have always got the shaft when it comes to food and gas.." Dec 10, 08 5:16 PM

Schools reflect on possible forced consolidation

If we leave this up to the local districts nothing gets changed. We have these mini empires all over the Island that cost plenty. We have superintendents of 2 or 3 schools pulling down well over 6 figures with staff members all making good money.

Then they retire and are hired back by the Districts as consultants. In Shirley the administrator who was making $125,000 retired on a Friday and was hired back on Monday as a consultant making $150,000. He didn't even change his desk and nobody knew he actually retired.

There should be only 2 superintendents. One in Nassau and one in Suffolk. We would be able to give every child in the school districts their own laptop with the money that would be saved.

There is just to much cronyism with the old boys network in Boces. We have been saddled with bloated administrations. It is time for a drastic change. " Dec 10, 08 5:40 PM

Plan for seven office buildings proposed in Hampton Bays

He will never get financing. The WAMU building is going to be vacant in a month and this is just the start of a commercial glut in the Hamlet. Just look at the other grandiose ideas these contractors come up with like leveling CPI's and replacing it with luxury time shares. Yeah right. This pig will never fly." Jan 28, 09 5:06 PM

Stop & Shop will open its doors Friday in Hampton Bays

I live in Hampton Bays have been shopping in Riverhead for the last 12 years. I usually get my gas for 20 cents a gallon cheaper there and save enough in groceries to fund 2 annual vacations for my family. Best Yet for cold cuts and Waldbaums for everything else. I am not a big fan of Stop N Shop either. King Kullen is the Anti-Christ and I only use them for my $1 doubled coupons.

When the lawsuit against the town was going on it was proved in court that King Kullen charges 20% more on OFF circular items then in stores west of HB. When it was announced that the new shopping center was opening in town no one would divulge who the supermarket was going to be. It was a big secret. That is because KK and the town have been in cahoots to freeze out any other supermarket.. The old KK became Wild by Nature just to freeze out any competition. I guarantee you WbyN will be closed right after the summer.

I still write letters to Shop-Rite, which is my favorite store, to open here. That I is the only way I would shop in Hampton Bays." Apr 15, 09 5:48 PM

Empire subscribers can stay with doctors

The Bill for Illegal immigrants has come due. Hospital have too many non paying customers and they want Blue Cross to pay their share. BC refuses and we suffer. The Gov't option will pass because we are now paying for all of the GM retiree's luxurious health care. Include that to the burden the Hospitals are adding to their bottom line with servicing non paying clients and the refusal of the Insurance Co's to pay their share and you have no choice but to add a Gov't option. The alternative is to have the Hospital's close down like Hemstead Hospital did, and then what?

When I hear people screaming about no coverage for Illegals in the new health plan I have to laugh. We are already giving them free health care but it is at the expense of the middle class." Sep 16, 09 5:04 PM

Health care reform passes House with Bishop's blessing

Rather than a 2,000 page health bill why not make it 2 pages. It can list all the options that current Congressmen have in health care. We all could select a nice PPO and be done. No fines or penalties. I mean after all don't they work for us?" Nov 12, 09 4:53 PM

Special election date set by Southampton Town Board

I just hope whoever it is can see to it that Montauk Highway is plowed on a timely basis. What has happened to snow removal in this town over the last 5 years is a disgrace." Feb 3, 10 2:35 PM

Bridget Fleming wins vacant Southampton Town Board seat

It was amazing to me the amount of people who voted in Sag Harbor had no political affiliation with any party and they went big for Ms. Fleming." Mar 12, 10 1:24 PM

Oddone sentenced to 22 years in prison

How this wasn't Murder 2 I have no idea. However Corrections Officers will be waiting for this guy. He may end up never seeing the light of day again.

U.S. Census workers are still plugging away on the East End

I never received a form and the census worker appeared 5 days before the deadline on April 15 for mailed forms. She said they didn't send out any forms out here they just sent the workers. Just like our Government to waste some more tax dollars." Apr 16, 10 6:51 PM

Publisher of Dan's Papers files for Chapter 11

Condos proposed in return for saving Canoe Place Inn

When I first heard of Luxury Timeshares there I laughed. Railroad tracks and Montauk Hwy views. An idea that would have floated in 2005 or 2006 with all the idiotic financing that was going on, but not in 2010. Now we have them changing it to Luxury Condos. I want to see the Bank that is going to fund this. This is just a ploy to get the Town to buy it from them with restoration funds. They are stuck with a bad investment. It is best for the Town just to wait it out. They will go away just like all the other multiple owners of the last few years and the Town should be able to buy it for a song.

Maybe the Town will get smart and restore the building, expand on it and turn it into a year round center for the youth of the Town. Maybe even with an indoor swimming pool." Jul 9, 10 8:06 PM
