Peconic Baykeeper Seeking Donations To Keep The Kathy Afloat

Good to know that groveling and begging is alive and well.

Try American Heart Association, East End Hospice, Southampton Hospital, American Cancer Society, Southampton Fresh Air Home, Guild Hall, Parrish Art, Sandy Victims Fund, Red Cross, and so many others ...... These are charities that are in dire need...

That's my two cents anyway..." Jan 2, 13 5:07 PM

Yes - that would be interesting to see indeed. Is that information available on-line since it's a non-profit? " Jan 16, 13 12:49 PM

Hampton Bays Civic Renews Talks Of Incorporation

If you want to own your destiny you have to take control of it. Incorporating a village is a great idea if you can overcome the tax increases to the community with an additional layer of government. You'll have to create many new departments and then "pay to use" others like the police and other services. You'll need to have several new departments such as a village attorney/prosecutor building, zoning, planning, code enforcement, clerk, various boards, and on and on and on.... An expensive proposition at a minimum.

Much of the current problems in HB is from the loud mouths and road-blockers who pressured Town Hall to slow and stop ALL development and a Moratorium was placed in HB and no building permits were being issued. Ooooh, "development" is such a bad word but it keeps properties looking good and moving forward which is the goal. Landlords and property owners could not get permits unless they received a waiver from the Planning Board - which - MJG and her cronies, the civic association and other CAC folks all complained about. The current process to "fix" and "make HB look nice again" is so very very difficult why would anyone want to go through it. Point in fact - the new King Kullen shopping plaza was such a fight and the "locals" fought it tooth and nail and those same fighters I see shopping there regularly.

I'm all for HB incorporating even if that means higher taxes - at least you'll get action and get things done without the bullcr@p! But this new village needs to buy MJG a condo in another part of the country, purgatory is just not working out for her!" Jan 23, 13 10:15 AM

Neighbors Divided Over Plan For East End Hospice Facility On Quiogue

Your personal rationale aside, it's Hospice and it's a much needed community support system. A Hospice patient will touch everyone at some point in their lives such as family, friends, co-workers. If they want to build it on a barge in the middle of the ocean, so be it. For ANY community member to be against this organization, such as the chronic complainer and seemingly anti-humanitarian Kevin McAllister (the self-appointed, non-elected, non-public official, self titled Peconic Baykeeper) and his minions, this will not bode well.

Just remember at your annual check writing time please do it with thought and caring for such organizations like Hospice, American Heart Association, Cancer Society, your local food pantry and so many others. Kevin is not making any friends here and the strange thing here is that if he ever needed their services Hospice would welcome him with open arms.

I think it's despicable to not help this organization find solutions. Creating unnecessary public controversy is only for publicity purposes.

UPDATE: Jay Sears Released After Posting $250,000 Bond; Under House Arrest In Quogue

Here's my analysis of this story as it relates to our wonderful community of bloggers on 27east.

Here is a fairly clear case of someone doing awful things and not one comment from NATURE, PBR, NATIVE, CHEIF1, and all you others negative bloggers .....

Want to build a new grocery store in Westhampton and there's like 100 comments, want to upgrade a bakery to a cafe and all the comments come out.

Bail denied - good call judge! Our community is not safe with this guy out of jail.

...and approve the new grocery store in WHB. We're all tired of buying spoiled meat and expired milk!" Feb 15, 13 9:46 AM

Westhampton Beach Teachers Reject Proposed Salary Freeze

Are you sick of highly-paid teachers? Teachers’ hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work 9 or 10 months a year! It’s time we put things in perspective and pay them for what they do – baby sit! We can get that for less than minimum wage.

That’s right. Let’s give them $3.00 an hour and only the hours they worked; not any of that silly planning time, or any time they spend before or after school. That would be $19.50 a day (7:45 to 3:00 PM with 45 min. off for lunch and plan — that equals 6 1/2 hours).

Each parent should pay $19.50 a day for these teachers to baby-sit their children.

Now how many do they teach in a day…maybe 30? So that’s $19.50 x 30 = $585.00 a day. However, remember they only work 180 days a year!!! I am not going to pay them for any vacations.

LET’S SEE…. That’s $585 X 180= $105,300 per year. (Hold on! My calculator needs new batteries).

What about those special education teachers and the ones with Master’s degrees? Well, we could pay them minimum wage ($7.75), and just to be fair, round it off to $8.00 an hour. That would be $8 X 6 1/2 hours X 30 children X 180 days = $280,800 per year.

Wait a minute — there’s something wrong here! There sure is!

The average teacher’s salary (nationwide) is $50,000.

$50,000/180 days = $277.77/per day/30 students=$9.25/6.5 hours = $1.42 per hour per student–a very inexpensive baby-sitter and they even EDUCATE your kids!

WHAT A DEAL!" Mar 7, 13 6:24 PM

Westhampton Beach Merchants Oppose Plan To Close Main Street For Free Concert On July 4

Publicity has no boundaries. Closing the road for a few hours will not have any impact on their business whatsoever. Parking on Main Street is ridiculous anyway during the summer. Ladies move on, this makes you look foolish and selfish." Apr 6, 13 11:19 PM
