110,000 Square Foot Sagaponack Estate Has No Room For Pilates Training

NO" Jun 19, 13 3:01 PM

Why no? You might as well ask why have zoning restrictions! You teaparty nuts always have the same answer to every question, let everyone do whatever they want, until, of course, the conversation is about social issues, then you want to tell everyone what to do.

Why is that, do you hope you too will one day be Mr. Rennert? You won't. But keep dreaming, Chiefie" Jun 20, 13 9:38 AM

OUR zoning laws" Jun 20, 13 1:39 PM

Zoning laws apply to all of us, whether we live in a 1,000 square foot shack or a 110,000 square foot testament-to-arrogance-and-greed. It is not a question of whether this dude owns the land or not, nor is it a question of the scale of his pilates studio. The question before the zoning board is this: Is there not sufficient room in his current 110,000 square feet to ad a 700 square foot pilates room? He no doubt has closets that are larger than that, let him put it there otherwise, let him prove that his request is reasonable (on the face of it, it clearly is not)

To all of you who want to give him credit for asking, give me a break! He is not doing anyone a favor, he is following the law and that is a requirement not a choice." Jun 21, 13 10:23 AM

Vice President Joe Biden Vacationing In Southampton This Week

Foghorn, open mouth, insert teabag" Aug 6, 13 4:29 PM

The conservative-corporatists will never get over the fact that Obama/Biden were twice elected by overwhelming majorities. Just imagine how distraught they'll be for the eight years of Hillary's presidency!" Aug 7, 13 9:31 AM

East End School Test Scores Drop, Reflecting Statewide Trend

Chief, the tests are like your comments - pointless and without merit. There is no correlation between these test scores and education. If you'd do a little research, you'd realize that to be true." Aug 9, 13 1:46 PM

Complaints Over Volleyball Games In Springs Lead To Proposed New Limit

dagdavid nailed it. Ecuadorians love v-ball and have regular, well-attended games at their homes throughout the hamptons (I've been to one and they are intense and fun as hell).

This is about playing volleyball while Latino. Plain and simple." Aug 16, 13 2:36 PM

Lets remember who this woman is:

"A Springs resident called for East Hampton Town Councilwoman Theresa Quigley’s resignation at a Town Board meeting last Thursday, claiming she called some residents “Nazis” at an earlier meeting this month." The rest of the story can be found on this site.


The charge that there are illegally overcrowded homes in Springs is not a new one, but East Hampton Town Councilwoman Theresa Quigley thinks she might have a new solution to the problem.

"Ms. Quigley is working on a law that would give the town the power to presume a single family home is illegally overcrowded—shifting the burden to prove otherwise onto the property owner. Once a home is defined as illegally overcrowded, the town would be able to tax the property owner up to two times the rate of a single-family home."" Aug 16, 13 2:48 PM

The video FURTHER proves the point that this is about playing volleyball while Latino. The woman addresses and dismisses the question of ethnic bias, but that does not mean the issue is irrelevant. This woman makes a number of accusations but offers no proof. She accuses the volleyball players of "violating the law"? How, by playing a game of volleyball? As far as placing bets, are you not allowed to play poker in your house or have a football pooh with friends? " Aug 17, 13 2:57 PM

PBR, she made ACCUSATIONS of illegal acitivities. But you prefer to say she LISTED illegal activities, as if her assertions are factual simply because she claims them to be so. "Public urination" where, in their own yard? Have you never whipped it out and peed in your backyard while having a good time with friends? If they are parking improperly, call the police and ask that the cars be moved. If they are making too much noise, again, call the effing police and have them told to keep it down. But tell them how many people are allowed to come to their house and how often? Give me a break, dude. I know what this is about. And so does anyone who cares to be honest." Aug 18, 13 1:45 PM

Yes. And, you want more evidence that this is about nothing more than ethnicity, re-read the bigoted rant by Razza5350 that you liked.

Thank you, PBR, for validating my concerns about bias." Aug 19, 13 9:57 AM

Razza5350, and PBR who freaking "liked" his comments, have shown that claims of ethnic bias are the true motivation behind this push to limit individual rights. If these were teaparty's or meetings of their fellow bigots for a football game they'd be screaming "government overreach!" " Aug 19, 13 9:59 AM

Hampton Bays Vigil Calls For Renewed Push For Immigration Reform

Laziness is not an excuse for ignorance. It is very easy to do a search to see that you are completely incorrect. Q333 there are at least 740,000 undocumented workers in Florida, with or without "government handouts." Speaking of which, why don't you actually identify what gov't handouts undocumented workers are eligible to receive (and don't use Glenn Beck)

Conservative dolts cannot have a serious conversation about immigration because they focus on lies and hyperbole. " Sep 16, 13 3:44 PM

ObamaCare To Be Explained At Sag Harbor Chamber Event

Republicans worst fears realized: Obamacare Premiums Report Shows Low Prices For Uninsured

The average price for basic health coverage purchased on health insurance exchanges created by President Barack Obama's health care reform law will be $249 a month, not counting subsidies, in 48 states reviewed by the Department of Health and Human Services, according to a government report published Wednesday.

The health insurance exchanges, marketplaces for uninsured people and consumers who don't get health benefits from their employers, are scheduled to launch on Oct. 1 for an enrollment period that runs through the end of March for 2014 coverage. This latest analysis of what the health insurance plans will cost comes just six days before people will be able to find out what they'll actually pay.

"For millions of Americans, these new options will finally make health insurance work within their budget," Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said during a conference call with reporters Tuesday. Reporters were provided access to the report prior to its publication.

The figures released by the Department of Health and Human Services represent averages and prices will vary widely by geographic location as well as family size, age, tobacco use and income. Even the average price of a so-called bronze plan, designed to cover 60 percent of medical expenses not counting monthly premiums, masks big variation. The average price of the cheapest bronze plan in Minnesota is $144 while in Wyoming, comparable coverage costs $425 on average, not including subsides.

For people who currently are uninsured and who qualify for financial assistance or enrollment in Medicaid, the federal-state health program for the poor, the average prices look to be low: 56 percent of uninsured will be able to get coverage for less than $100 a month per person, Gary Cohen, director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, said during the conference call."

Kabot Wins Conservative Primary By One Vote

Mr Ketih, allow a word from one of your detractors. I have read your column over the years, far from being a gentlemen you are a bigoted, small-minded, mysoginist, extremist. Of course you find a slew of fans among your fellow wingnuts who, like you, thrive on fear-mongering ignorance, but some of us see you for what you are.

And you know I'm right." Sep 25, 13 4:39 PM

Bishop Signs Letter To Speaker Calling For Vote To End Shutdown

The president's devastating and complete defeat of the teaparty is nigh

"Per Sen sources, Boehner has agreed to take up the Senate's plan and allow it to pass with Dem votes."

Once again it is left ot the democrats to save the speaker and the US economy. We do so with a smile on our faces and an ever-growing eagerness for 2014!

A big thank you to Canadian Senator Ted Cruz and his secret contingent of loons that met in the basement of a taco restaurant. Your plot to destroy US democracy has blown up in your faces. Now clean off the quacamole and cheese and start packing your bags!

Oh, forgot to thank Ted McCarthy Cruz for the 7 point pump in Obamacare favorability and a special shout out to Terry McAuliffe, Corey Booker, and Bill de Blasio for their forthcoming victories over teaparty extremists! " Oct 16, 13 10:09 AM

The editorial page of the Houston Chronicle expressed some buyer's remorse on Tuesday for endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in last year's election.

In the editorial, the Chronicle lamented that Cruz did not take after his predecessor, fromer Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX).

"When we endorsed Ted Cruz in last November's general election, we did so with many reservations and at least one specific recommendation - that he follow Hutchison's example in his conduct as a senator," the editorial read. "Obviously, he has not done so. Cruz has been part of the problem in specific situations where Hutchison would have been part of the solution."" Oct 16, 13 11:35 AM

Healing? Yeah, right. This ain't some lovers spat, this is about the future of American democracy and the teaparty terrorists who have NOT given up their fight to bring down the government. Rock on, Hazel! You freaking nailed it.

You think these dolts have learned their lesson. Just look at bigrotten up above - the first thing he resorts to is the old "Der Fuhrer" bs. No, there will be no healing until the teaparty is completely destroyed! And we're almost there! Next stop, SINGLE PAYER!!" Oct 17, 13 5:11 PM

UPDATE: Southampton Voters Overwhelmingly Defeat Merger Proposal In Straw Vote Tuesday

" Causes people to say mean things to one another rather than working together to create a better community." OK, sounds reasonable.

But followed by: "If you live in Southampton and don't want to be a part of Community then LEAVE."

Hmmmm . . . anyone else notice the irony?

Good luck with your vote, folks. Eager to see how this turns out." Oct 29, 13 2:11 PM

"If you don't agree with me, LEAVE!" Seriously, mychild?

By the way, "A group of people with the same, religion, race . . ." Is that what you're looking for? If so, I reccommend a kibutz or perhaps a commune." Oct 29, 13 2:25 PM

mychild and observant stand as perfect examples of what is wrong with the residents of both districts. Each one looking out for their own best interests while resorting to hollow threats and vapid insults, but no solutions." Oct 30, 13 12:30 PM

Do kids go to these schools? If you take a look at how their respective boards act you'd think that the schools are nothing but repositories for tax dollars and administrators.

The real issue with this entire merger process: school board members. " Oct 30, 13 12:32 PM

Tuckahoe Exploring Tax Options For School Merger
