If Blinking Light Program Is Successful, County Road 39 Could Get A New Underpass Instead Of Light

VERY WELL SAID!!! I couldn't agree more with your entire statement!
" Apr 23, 16 6:06 PM

Than move the toll booth closer than RT 111!!! Its OBV that many people agree with his wonderful idea! Local business owners are losing jobs to the trade parade bc they can afford to under bid the local business here!! And if u don't understand why this is , ask a local business owner. Zero forethought my behind! Send ALL the non locals through the toll booth ...NO EAZY PASS FOR THEM whatsoever. Let them sit on a long line to pay the dues ( that money can be used to repair the roads! Thus using funds in other ways that would benefit the town or maybe the farmers who grow the food you eat. Let the trade parade sit on line an pay. This will slow down the traffic on the already dangerous County Rd 39. The local business owners an service workers here deserve a break so they don't have to sell out an leave their hometown . Pay attention Z....Average age demographic for this area is 55years old....where does that leave the future of our once quaint town? Young ppl are being pushed out at an alarming rate!! TOLL BOOTH! KEEP BUSINESS LOCAL! I see the glass half full!!" Apr 24, 16 8:05 AM

Southampton Village Looks To Limit Number Of Vehicles Allowed On Beach At Picnic Area

Have YOU signed the PETITION in SUPPORT OF THE TRUSTEES? GO TO Southamptonbeach.org !!! Than go to CFAR please and sign their petiton as well! Please have every family member sign the petitions. Wealthy homeowners and their multi million dollars lawsuit needs to be stopped and prevented and NOT just with the beach an the trustees. We need to unite as a community! Look at the BH race track , Wainscott Sand an gravel, The Picnic Area, Truck Beach an so on....What will be next ? ;(" Apr 24, 16 8:16 AM

Your glass is always full but u condtradict yourself by saying it's too late to save the locals.!!Kudos to U for having such a negative attitude. Its never too late Mr Z ! As for toll booth, as I said its OBV by reading all the comments that more ppl are in favor of this than your "glass always full ideas" If you could find some way to think outside the box you would see this is great resolution to the problem. I wish you well on this. " Apr 25, 16 8:04 AM

I sure DO ! I know how it works out here! I have sat in meetings at Village Hall an Town Hall an have watched petitions get disregarded an decisions based solely on what the summer crowd wants. Asking til I'm blue in the face is my right. But one disappointed blue face is irrelevant.... but maybe 100 blue faces aren't. At least I can say I tried! " Apr 26, 16 8:54 AM

Great idea!!! This could provide much needed insight to those who don't quite grasp how much of an impact the trade parade has on our overcrowded east end. " Apr 27, 16 6:18 PM

Southampton Village Looks To Limit Number Of Vehicles Allowed On Beach At Picnic Area

If "spreading out" on the beach means that we have taking away from potential piping plovers homes, Well what do we tell Joe Farell ? Stop spreading out your unsold Mansions bc it's destroying the homes of the wildlife here. Pushing the Deer out of their natural habitat so that they have no food to eat, thus destroying the vegetation in in my yard. Or the poor birds who have lost their nest in the tree he cut down!! When there is a presence of piping plover on the beach, those areas are fenced off with snow fencing to protect them! This entire island is lined by plenty of beach front for the plover to SHARE with US.I wonder what would happen if Mrs. Plover decided to lay her eggs right smack in the middle of Coopers Beach! As for the said grasses we run over...we don't do that.!!! Think about how much beach grass is destroyed on Meadow Lane when a new Mansion goes up. Spreading out is irrelevant to keeping the beaches clean and intact. The locals at the picnic area are responsible for cleaning up the garbage on the beach that comes from everybody and everywhere. We value an respect what we have here. Vikki I do hope that you may understand my point of view. ty" Apr 29, 16 7:54 AM

Wickapogue Pond Contaminated With Blue-Green Algae Blooms

So you point blame at the farmers?? WOW!!

"Typically algae blooms are caused by an oxygen deficiency water column, excessive nutrients loads i. e. nitrogen and phosphorous runoff from lawns, agriculture land, septic systems etc., biodegradable materials i. e. dead leaves and place material, fecal matter from fish, frogs, birds and other aquatic life and sunlight "

Lets think about ALL the other components that lead to the blooms rather than pointing blame at the farmers!! " May 1, 16 8:54 AM

Southampton Town Officials Suggest Increasing County Road 39 Speed Limit

Just pure lack of common sense! How about a turning light in the West Bound direction , to safely make a left at Tuckahoe school light before I get killed !!!!! Seriously!!!! I believe this is the only light on 39 without a left arrow for safe turning!!! Btw, should kept 39 and single lane road instead of widening ! Just dumb" May 10, 16 7:56 AM

kinda hate to say it , but we watched 2 vehicles with "volunteer" ambulance stickers, one right behind the other, hauling ass down 39 coming into SH...prob doing at least 50mph ...watched them blow right past us never slowed down....not a good example to set especially when they are the ones responding to the terrible accidents on that road.

UPDATE: Southampton Village Public Hearing Draws In Over 150 People

So the Village sells us all stickers and than changes the rules prior to the beach season??!! THATS NOT FAIR !!! Thats shady!!! Maybe its time for the State to take over control of the beach so that its kept the way its always been!!!! After all , the Village waited until the day of the meeting to change the location...hence why many were not in attendance ! SHADY! Too much corruption in the Village

The Araskogs and their "6 Acre Surf Inspired Gardens' need to get over themselves. Its everyones beach and doesn't belong to them and their precious surf camp that operated illegally for so many years.

Next time EPLY , stand up for your year round local ppl...WE TOO ARE GOOD PEOPLE!!!" May 14, 16 8:46 AM

Commercial activity should NOT HAPPEN on ANY of the beaches is here!! Doesn't matter if $ is being exchanged off the beach, its wrong! Even more so now with a vehicle limit on the beach. Maybe its time for a petition to stop the commercial activity . Shut them down and the Araskogs wont be the 'Big Kahuna" when it comes to "their" surf camp and the large party they host for them at the end of the summer. GREAT INFO Bigfresh!!!

SUPPORT THE TRUSTESS!! SIGN the petition at Southamptonbeach.org

Would love to see someone like Tim Corwin on the board..perhaps as our new Mayor...he truly cares about tradition , the local people and the community. We need an honest man and the reigns ! " May 15, 16 8:23 AM

The community clearly needs a PUBLIC FORUM to FULLY EXPLAIN every aspect of this situation! And not just a smoke screen by the Village ( thursdays meeting) We cant rely on the Press as they are cautious as to what they print! THANK YOU WMFlyPt & Bigfresh for your VERY INFORMATIVE posts! This is the exact information that the ENTIRE community needs to hear!! they need to hear it, they need to be handed literature , and asked to bring a pen an paper take notes. If we dont take a stand, we lose out to big $ yet again. We lose another piece of our traditions . Dyani Brown is taking a stand against an unjust parking ticket. We may have a different petition than her , but we are ALL in the same battle! Yet we stand alone, bc we are from the Village, From NS, from the Reservation, Watermill, Tuckahoe......theres no "i" in team when we stay within our clicks. Lets ALL be from Southampton! And lets fight these battles together...as one strong community ." May 16, 16 9:14 AM

When was the last time the DEC checked the mean high tide line ? I understand this is done about every 30 years......and that this could make a difference in favor of the beach goes.......?? TY

Oh how beneficial a public forum would be ....." May 16, 16 1:11 PM

There will be a fence erected at the County Park line to prevent access. Something that should have been done a long time ago. SUV'S would overflow from the County Lines to the point where multiple , daily calls were placed to the Police Dept and nothing was done about it!!"They" were instructed not to ticket anyone without a proper beach sticker.!!! True Story!!!

There will be a fence there. A gate at Jim Aerys way with an attendant. And from what I understand Gary Macs Way will be closed off....or become the Exit road. " May 17, 16 8:36 AM

NOPE! they do no want to see us at ALL ! They dont want to see our SUV's parked or driving , our umbrellas or American flags. They complain now that we have to park 2 cars deep now. More than 250 beach stickers we sold the year the Surf Camp was legally allowed to operate!!! And now the beach is too crowded!! "They" want it vehicle free except for the Surf camp . We , the local beach goers, drive the 10 mile speed limit on the beach, we air our tires down, walk the beach an pick up garbage, we tell "outsiders" that the dunes are not a lavatory , despite this not happening often. They want us to walk . I'll take a burger plz food whiner :) " May 17, 16 11:04 AM

WHY U ASK!!! THE DONGAN PATENT!! WHY TRUCKS IN FRONT OF THEIR ?!! DONT PURCHASE AN OCEAN FRONT HOME THAT HAS 4X4 ACESS TO THE BEACH IN FRONT OF IT AND THAN BLAME THE VERY PEOPLE WHO WORK THEIR ASSES OFF TO SERVE THESE HOME! MAYBE ITS A QUESTION FOR THEIR REALTOR TO ANSWER!! AND WHY IS SABA BEING ACCUSED OF DEMONIZING THE ARASKOGS AND THEIR LAWSUIT??? SABA IS ABOVE THAT!!! THANK YOU! AND WE WILL NOT END UP WITH NOTHING!

DESTROYING THE ONE PLACE THAT THE LOCAL FAMILY'S CAN GATHER TOGETHER AN MAKE PRECIOUS MEMORIES IS IMMORAL....IM HEARTBROKEN YOU WOULD SAY THET THE OCEANFRONT HOMEOWNERS FINALLY GOT IT RIGHT. ITS WRONG! WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THIS WORLD?!!

" May 23, 16 5:07 PM

First off lil buddy, the person you just called out is not on the Saba board so dont chastise them for someone elses freedom of speech ! And "he" has every right to be angry and SHAME SHAME SHAME on you to call him out publicly like this! I'd bet my left leg he has alot alot alot more information on all of this!! Maybe you should back read ALL the arcticles related to this, including the surf camp articles ...go back til about 2012...prob make u re- think .....

The Araskogs would rather us be off the beach completely!! U say someones is demonizing them....did it ever occur to you that have been demonizing us and that your not aware of this!! Did you read WMflypt's long and very informative rant...its worth it. THIS IS NOT ABOUT EQUAL PROTECTION!! But its not your fault you have been misled. Would be wonderful to expand it but well, this is foreign to many other people and they dont want it ! Maybe u missed the letters to the editor ?

Southampton Village Residents Outraged At Possible Picnic Area Driving Limits

You are correct on the surf camp causing the increase in vehicles on the beach!! The largest spike in beach stickers sold was the year the surf camp was allowed to legally operate ...an increase of just over 250 stickers !! The second largest spike in stickers sold was due to the first lawsuit an SABA forming . Sadly these homeowners cut their noses off to spite there faces .

They also dont want to share the beach with us!! I politely asked the Arasakog group one day if they were staying ( they were clearly packing up ) because we didn't want to cram in on top of them. I was trying to share the beach with them. She told me , and in not a nice tone, that they were staying ALL Day! 20 mins later , after they removed their unleashed dog from our lil area, they left the beach and didn't return . So how do we coexist at the beach when this is the response we get from them? " May 25, 16 8:19 AM
