Southampton Town considers privatizing waste disposal operation

Ms Kabot, go for it! I suggest you plant a "spy" at the North Sea Recycling center and see how little works gets done, and how many unnecessary employees there are. Someone I know did community service there for a while and he was shocked about the countless hours the workers there do nothing but stand around and talk. There needs to be accountability- you're the person to make sure that happens!" Oct 20, 08 6:09 PM

Southampton Village closes hearing on Bailey Road workforce housing project

I'm not sure I understand Ms. Plum's point about the income requirements. Does she mean it would be hard to find someone in Southampton who makes less than $73,000? That is a very typical salary for a skilled blue collar worker out here; and some local families live here on less. But, perhaps she means that with a maximum salary of $73,000 the price of the home, even subsidized, would be out of reach for the target population. If the latter is her point, it is a good case for moving the workforce housing elsewhere." Nov 23, 09 10:12 PM

Chabad of Southampton wins Planning Board approval

FYI "littleplains"... There is no "full time traffic cop" at Sacred Hearts church. He is there most Sundays to assist cars exiting the lot after the busy 9:30 am Mass. He seems to stay for about 15- 20 minutes . " Sep 17, 10 4:18 PM

Village Latch Inn Hotel Listed At $24.9 Million

I was going to have out of town guests stay at The Village Latch recently, until I read the reviews on TripAdvisor- overwhelmingly negative. Too bad- it is a great location for a hotel." Jan 25, 11 4:18 PM

Police Say 30-Year-Old Hispanic Man Is Being Sought In Fatal Hit-And-Run; Name Still Not Released

As far as I was taught, sisters are referred to as "Sister Mary", or "Sister Mary Smith", not "Sister Smith." A quick phone call to any convent by a writer or editor can clear this up. May Sr. Jackie rest in peace. " Jul 12, 12 10:06 PM

Southampton Village Market Proposed For Hampton Road

A Citarella would be great, but there is not enough parking in the proposed area. What about that empty brick medical office building next to the post office? There is plenty of parking behind it. The downside would be making a left turn out of the lot, and Schmidts would not be too happy, but that place has been empty for years. " Feb 26, 13 8:36 AM

Great White Shark Found On Amagansett Beach Being Studied At Stony Brook Southampton

Agree, Westhamptonboy. I was confused when Mr Michaels said he was concerned about the crowd of beachgoers "standing around" the shark ..., Standing in a circle around a dead shark, pointing its anatomy out to one's children and even posing for pictures should not be cause for outrage, in my opinion.

Southampton's Capri Hotel Back On Market For $5.2 Million

The online reviews for this place are mostly terrible (one review said there was no hot water.) It will be a $ 5 million money pit. " Aug 14, 14 10:01 AM

UPDATE: Police Say Man Found At Napeague Beach Died From Self-Inflicted Injury

Is it any of our business what his name was? His friends and family will know, and that's the only thing that matters, when it comes down to it. Very sad. " Nov 20, 14 7:49 PM

Two Workers At Day Care Center Charged Friday With Child Endangerment

Innocent until proven. I don't know Ms Dawber, but I do know Kathleen. She is a wonderful mother and I am very skeptical about these accusations." Sep 1, 15 8:23 PM

The Story Behind Eric Fischl's 'Tumbling Woman'

"...in the United States, reaction to the human toll was quickly diverted to mourning the lost buildings." That is quite a strong statement the writer makes about a nation's collective grief, and I would like to know what his assertions are based on. Is he referring to the depictions of the twin towers that appeared everywhere afterwards? To me, those images represented the nearly 3000 people who were killed in the towers that day, not the brick, mortar, and steel that came down. Personally, I don't know anyone who mourned for the buildings. We were mourning the people and their families. " Sep 11, 15 8:37 AM

Parents Of Child Involved In Alleged Abuse At Day Care Center File Notice Of Claim Against Several Agencies

I agree- that comment was incredible. If this is the lawyers's rationale for suing all these agencies I doubt it will sit well with a judge and jury. I can only imagine a juror thinking, "my own infant in day care doesn't deserve the "highest quality of care" and " increased concern" that babies in "the Hamptons" do?? Whether or not there is merit to the parents' case, their lawyers remarks are very telling. " Nov 18, 15 4:55 PM
