Supporters gather for brothers facing fishing charges

Once again, we see how far our nation has fallen from it's orginal founding liberties. Our goverments on both the state and federal level continue to strangle the people of this nation. I pray that these two innocent men are freed of these charges. " Mar 5, 10 1:11 PM

Springs School breakfast program could be ready by April

A correction needs to be made to this article. There are over 650 kids in the school not 550. The school continues to grow in population year after year, mostly due to the fact that the town continues to look the other way regarding illegal housing in the area. If the code was enforced properly, there would be less students and a much lesser need for a food program. The school has so many other pressing needs in terms of materials for education. Education, being the primary focus of a school." Mar 6, 10 8:04 AM

Leaf pickup may be eliminated in East Hampton Town due to budget crisis

What a joke. Thanks again to the previous administration for bankrupting a wealthy town. " Mar 10, 10 2:49 PM

Sag Harbor looking to trim 10-percent budget hike

I agree that a 17% hike is horrible, but once again we always see people blaming the teachers. If you think they have it so good, become one. It takes a lot of money and leg work to become a teacher. You need a college degree, masters, and must take multiple exams. The requirements to become a teacher are much greater than most jobs. " Mar 11, 10 6:51 PM

Town code is easy, enforcement is hard

How about checking up on year-round illegal housing? Maybe in a place like, well SPRINGS? There is residence on Neck Path, which may be a home, a motel, or a weekend volleyball arena, I'm not really sure?" Mar 17, 10 10:00 AM

Unfortunately, those of us who suffer from illegal housing and zoning are the middle class. We live in the nieghborhoods where most of the infrcations occur. There aren't many illegal living situations on FURTHER LANE. Certain parts of Springs are out of control. It has also resulted in the overcrowding of a school district that does not have the revenue to handle it. The town has done little if nothing to stop it." Mar 18, 10 12:26 PM

Bishop will vote yes on health care reform bill

Ironically, this gov. take over makes me sick. Why people have any faith in gov. run programs baffles me. Everything the gov. touches goes bankrupt. It's a form of insanity to expect this to be any different. " Mar 20, 10 8:01 AM

Don't care about your fellow man? What a clueless comment. You might try reading up on the constitution, and garnering a better understanding of LIBERTY. " Mar 20, 10 6:39 PM

People are guaranteed life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We are not guaranteed happiness. Oh and this trillion dollar socialist health program will be paid for with tax payer money. If you understand the founding principles, they deemed taxing one person's prosperity to give to another as unconstitutional. In other words wealth redistribution is unconstitutional. " Mar 20, 10 8:15 PM

It amazes me how many socialists live in such an affluent area like the Hamptons. It also amazes me how some people actually have faith in the government. The founding fathers were wise to keep it at a minimum, For all of you who support all this government growth, you stand against the founding principles of this great nation. Obama is a Marxist. If you don't believe this, do a little reading on the definition of a Marxist. Pelosi and Reid should be tried for treason. A revolution is coming this fall. Watch out!!!" Mar 22, 10 7:54 PM

The wide gulf is between people who understand the founding principles and those who don't. It is liberty vs. socialism. There is nothing to argue. Socialism is a failed system. History has proven that." Mar 22, 10 9:29 PM

It is not crazy talk to refer to Obama, Pelosi, and Reid as socialists and Marxists. That is what they are. Read up on the definitions. " Mar 23, 10 11:56 AM

It is quite ironic that you use a screen name like "setyoufree", when you apparently have no idea of what being free is." Mar 23, 10 2:46 PM

Free means liberty. The more the government grows, the more liberty we lose. Some Americans want liberty and the principles of the founders and others want handouts and bigger government." Mar 23, 10 3:58 PM

President signs historic health care legislation into law with Bishop's support

Congressman rather (Comrade) Bishop, thank you for helping to create what will be yet another bankrupted government program. You, Pelosi, Obama, and Reid and all your socialist cronies will pay dearly for this one. Most Americans don't want this. The numbers don't lie. There is a storm coming for you guys in November. " Mar 23, 10 6:08 PM

I like how people who are for less government are being called crazies. What a joke. Less government is what the founders believed in. These are the core principles of our republic. To be against these principles is to be against the very foundation of what America stands for. So sad, how so many crave wealth redistribution and hand outs. I guess you people look up to Karl Marx. I'll stay will Washington, Jefferson and Adams. History has proven socialism to be a failure. This is not debatable." Mar 23, 10 6:14 PM

At this point there is nothing else to say. Either you are for the founding principles of liberty and for more government power. I stand with the founders, the republic and liberty. Obama, Reid and Pelosi stand against the founders. They make me sick, almost as sick as all the trendy liberals that drive around the Hamptons in Range Rovers." Mar 23, 10 7:23 PM

That should read founding principles or more government power? I just can't understand the faith in bigger government? It's puzzling to me." Mar 23, 10 7:30 PM

SHnative. The founders would never support something like the giant health care bill. They never wanted the fed. government to be so big. You are the one who needs a history lesson. They were directly opposed wealth redistribution and hand outs." Mar 24, 10 10:17 AM

SHnative, this is not meant to be partisan. I find many faults with the Republicans." Mar 24, 10 12:33 PM

TurkeyBridge you are so wrong about this. This was a huge mistake by the Dems, and they will pay dearly in November. I'm hoping that this forces the Republicans to become constitutional conservatives again, more libertarian in nature like Ron Paul." Mar 24, 10 7:44 PM

Thiele drafts law for East Hampton school tax equity

I would love to see a new high school built for Springs and Montauk students. There is plenty of land behind the Springs School to do it. " Mar 25, 10 11:02 AM

President signs historic health care legislation into law with Bishop's support

Fidel Castro just applauded Obama for his new health care program. That says it all. ARGUMENT OVER" Mar 25, 10 6:06 PM

East Hampton considers bagging garbage

I hope this is not like the system in Southampton. That seams like a pain in the neck. " Mar 25, 10 8:16 PM

President signs historic health care legislation into law with Bishop's support

Fidel Castro has endorsed Obama's health plan. That says it all. I want nothing to do with anything that Castro thinks is a good idea. How embarassing. " Mar 29, 10 10:16 AM

For all of you who support this plan, I hope you find comfort in the fact that it is also supported by Castro. This is the final proof that Obama is a socialist and so are most of you." Mar 29, 10 10:18 AM

Could someone who supports this plan please respond to the fact that it was praised by Fidel Castro. How does it feel to stand along side Fidel. Oh, by the way, he is a COMMUNIST!!!!!!!!!" Mar 29, 10 8:26 PM

VOS What a rediculous comment. Obviously you can't defend Castro's support of the health care plan. " Mar 30, 10 6:30 PM

Sag Harbor School District asks entire staff to consider pay freeze

Everyone is aware of the economic times, but lets not forget that teachers perform an extremely important professional job. They deserve to be paid as professionals. Many locals appear to be jealous and resentful of teachers and cops. Remember all people have a choice to what they wish for a living. " Apr 1, 10 9:40 PM

Stony Brook University will announce drastic cuts to Stony Brook Southampton

Such a shame that a school has not been able to succeed in such an affluent area like this one. It just doesn't make sense. " Apr 8, 10 11:38 AM

Health care reform bill gets mixed reviews on East End

It is time for this country to turn back to its founding principals. Individual control and liberty. Enough with the big government, wealth redistribution and hand outs. These are not the characteristics that made this a great nation. Socialism is a dead end road. " Apr 8, 10 11:42 AM

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

Oh, guess what? "The census doesn't ask for citizenship status". (surprise, surprise) Heaven forbid our government do anything to stop illegal immigration. What a joke." Apr 16, 10 5:57 PM

Local Tea Party movement holds two rallies on Tax Day

Great point (xtiego). The problem is that the neo-socialists like Obama dont understand the founding principals. People are to be guaranteed life, liberty, and the PURSUIT of happiness. There is no guarantee on happiness. " Apr 21, 10 8:02 PM

Montauk School may cut after-school and summer programs, busing, to close budget gap

Montauk like Springs is being screwed over by the East Hampton School District, and its outrageous tuition fees. It is time for Montauk and Springs to build their own joint high school, and say goodbye to the snobs on Long Lane." Apr 23, 10 8:33 PM

East Hampton Village looks to liven up empty storefronts

I would certainly like to see the empty stores gone. It would be nice if East Hampton looked more like Sag Harbor. The village has no feel to it. It is half empty in the off-season and looks too much like an east coast Rodeo Drive in the summer. I avoid the village that time of year, so I don't puke from watching all the trendoids."

Green commuter hopes to inspire other South Fork residents

I commend him on standing up for his beliefs, but that is not a safe motor vehicle, especially with the seasonal traffic beginning to build up. " May 3, 10 6:10 PM
