Judge Orders That 161 Ballots Be Counted, Prepares Ruling On 1st District Race

who is that one source? Sarah Palin? isn't it funny that you are given a forum to spout your right wing drivel on a leftist driven media website? Poor righties don't invest in the media. I'm sure Rush and Hannity are struggling broadcasters or are they multi,multi millionaires. I guess their sponsers are just good-will lefties spreading their money around equally. I am not far left, I was a card carrying Republican for thirty four years but it is people like you, 27 dan, razza, joe hampton that made a switch easy based on your fear inducing and hate mongering beliefs."

I guess your a san francisco giant fan this year" Dec 6, 10 10:04 AM

What are you saying, everything's stacked against the right. In this town you can read The Press or The Independent. There isn't a farther right paper than The Independent. On television, there is Fox news 24 hours a day. Every Sunday I read The Post to see if I missing something. There are right radio shock jocks all over. I have to give credit to Sarah Palin, she is using the media for her message and getting paid for it as well. Very crafty. So I'm not sure what your beef is. Any responsible voter can get a right wing viewpoint at any time from any form of media. " Dec 7, 10 10:47 AM

Altschuler Concedes Congressional Race To Bishop

Well I guess if the famous Luke Scott said it, it must be true. Luke Scott, REALLY!!!!!!!! You really shouldn't post for your side, Anybody would be embarrassed to have you as a fellow compatriot." Dec 9, 10 10:27 AM

If liberalism was going down the drain, he would have lost the race not win it. Especially in such a toxic atmosphere for democrats. Just think every person YOU voted for LOST,now how popular is your position in New York. Maybe Kentucky is more your speed. You can drink mountain dew for breakfast and not have any teeth left which at least Tim still has teeth according to you." Dec 9, 10 12:55 PM

Police Investigate Shooting In Tuckahoe

Now is the time for the Republicans to put their two cents in how to make health care more affordable and palapable. Obama is all ears. But we are not starting at ground zero.Pre-existing illness and covering kids till twenty six was a courageous and brave start by Obama. So now is the time to put up or shut up. Do nothing Republicans here's your chance to do something. Let's see what you got!!!" Jan 26, 11 12:57 PM

ZBA To Decide on Tuckahoe 7-Eleven Next Month

Do I really care about some developer from Oyster Bay who made some bad decisions. Let him go bankrupt or offer reasonable rent. To change the zoning for these outsiders, REALLY!!!!!! It is too high retail usage traffic to put there. If this gets approved you might as well throw away the law book of zoning for this town. Outback had their own internal money problems and could not proceed with this expansion. It's not fair for South Fork Deli[I guess they predate zoning laws] and 7-11 in Southampton. You make decisions on leases on what are the possiblities of competition might be. Free competition is fine but within the zoning laws. These developers haven't tried hard enough with lowering their rent to entice a legally zoned business there." Jan 29, 11 2:38 PM

This isn't a job. This was investment speculation. It was a lousy decision. I guess a free marketplace with laws isn't good for you now. The sign of an immature person is always be contrary. Weren't you afraid about illegal aliens hanging out there or that doesn't bother you now. You are all over the place, you can't make up who you want to be. You just want to be a contrary, immature little red-neck cry baby." Jan 29, 11 8:20 PM

Cracker barrel for a cracker" Jan 29, 11 10:56 PM

Contrary,immature little red-neck cry baby hit a little to close to home huh, ICE." Jan 30, 11 10:02 AM

By the way Ice, what is your opinion of changing the zoning code to salvage the Oyster Bay investment company?" Jan 30, 11 10:07 AM

Careful Joe, you just spilled some of your McRib sandwich on yourself." Jan 30, 11 1:24 PM

Here are some of Joe's words, October 5,2010. It's all part of the cycle when the landlords realize they have to lower the rents the tenants will come back and when the stores are full the rents will climb again. It's called the free market people. If you don't like it go to Communist China. Now what was your analogy with the Mets? If this isn't the definition of contrary, I don't know what is. You are God loving but you hate gay people. Women should have no say when it comes to their bodies and pregnancy. How extreme are your views, the tea party candidate from Colorado was against abortion even in the case of incest and rape, do you share those views? Your views on latinos and blacks permeate with a healthy dose of stereotyping. I am your worst nightmare, I am white ,heterosexual, from blue collar roots, earned a great living from owning my own business, my family has fought on four different continents for this country and I don't think one thing the same with you except government needs to spend less money. Unfortunately, you are still the minority in New York proven by the last election where you lost every person you voted for. Those who post most or yells loudest doesn't make it so.I have seen enough bigotry and racism in my life to never keep quiet again. " Jan 30, 11 7:08 PM

It takes a .big man to own up. Kudos to you, Joe" Jan 31, 11 8:34 AM

The deli is grandfathered in. It predates zoning laws. The gas stations with convenience stores become more of a gray area. It has to do with percentages of their business. Like gasoline sales are say eighty percent of revenue,so there main business is still selling gas not coffee. Supermarket lobbyists are fighting this as they see their part of the apple being sliced up with stores that have tremendous,accessible locations selling competing goods in highway zones that they feel shouldn't be zoned for."

Southampton Town Zoning Board Again Delays Decision On 7-Eleven

I can't believe this is even being entertained. There are zoning laws for a reason. You don't put high volume retail business on a busy highway. It's not even like the business you are bringing in is unique or enhances the town. You have a deli in place across the street and Hess has coffee and crap as well. I would like to hear from the people of Tuckahoe, would they like a 7-11 there? Can you imagine every landlord claiming a hardship because they can't rent their places and want their zoning changed!!" Mar 21, 11 8:09 PM

That's all you got" Mar 22, 11 10:03 AM

Offer To Plant Cherry Trees In Agawam Park Withdrawn

You can see for yourself how beautiful the trees would look,go to the Flying Point baseball field (Downs Park) in the next week or two. They look just fine after blossoming too. If somebody wanted to plant cherry trees near my father's grave in Calverton National Cemetary, I would be ecstatic.

Nassau County To Support Shinnecock Casino At Belmont

If the Shinnecock tribe picks Belmont or Nassau coliseum or both, they will need a tractor-trailer to take the cash home every day. They are tapping in to the one of the most lucrative areas in the country without any local competition.Have you ever seen a plane that wasn't full leaving for Vegas from New York? Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun will struggle if they open multiple casinos on the island.
" May 15, 11 10:01 AM

Your translation is correct. Gambling is dangerous when it is so accessible. There are people who can actually budget their money going to casinos regulary and lose disposable income without any consequences. However, I've played in casinos in Las Vegas(many times), Reno, Arizona,Connecticut, New Jersey, Carribbean etc, there will be a small percentage who will lose their whole life with it. That isn't really the problem. It is people that start going to casinos daily, weekly instead of buying necessities or life style improvements. It is documented that a border town in Mass.(Falls River) that the economy went bust because so many people stopped buying refrigerators,cars,carpet,etc and were saving all their money to go and gamble in Foxwoods. The only game that can win is poker. Everything else is a negative-expectant game. Which means you may have some short term wins, in the end you will lose it all back.It's mathematical. I've watched people who can be close enough to take a short drive and instead of going grocery shopping or going to Target are playing slots at 11;00 a.m. All I'm saying I don't mind the buffer of traveling to go gambling. I hope the Shinnecocks make enough money to send their kids to college, buy some homes and lift their nation out of any negative impoverishment." May 16, 11 12:48 PM

Counter Protest By Immigrant Laborers Held At Southampton 7-Eleven

The white elitists that live here are not going to start trimming hedges, cutting lawns, washing dishes for eight or ten hours a day because their unemployment has run out or cut off. They do not posess the physical fortitude or the mental toughness to do these jobs day in,day out. Nobody is for illegal immigration. Some people might benefit from it. I think everybody would like some accounting of those here. Where are all our politicians, Republican or Democrat coming up with some legislation to confront this issue. As far as the two idiots standing in front of 7-11 trying to keep the vitriol going, go protest in front of Immigration Control, there the ones that enforce the law, instead of grandstanding after all these years. What a wasted life. The issue will be solved soon. Look how Republican politicians from Alabama are killing their agriculture business as stricter immigration laws are enacted, their is nobody to pick the crop. Plenty of jobs but who are you going to find to pick tomatoes from dawn to dusk? No american wants to do it." May 14, 12 12:36 PM

Just for the record, I trim my own fifteen foot hedges and mow my own lawn.

Come on over and I'll show you. I have two twelve foot ladders that makes a bridge . Other than that WHAT"S YOUR POINT????? I don't need to work for a newspaper, I retired at forty eight. SO WHAT"S YOUR POINT??? Next time make a comment with reference to my point of view. Other than that ,go back to sleep!!!" May 14, 12 10:50 PM

I know many Irish carpenters, did work on the side and never paid any taxes on that income. Don't get holier than thou on this issue TBoob. Despite the bigotry against the Irish when they migrated here in such large numbers starting with the potato famine in Ireland, America has always found a home for immigrants willing to work hard. Whether they were all legal,do we really know. There is no enforcement today, what was it like in the 1800's and early 20th century." May 14, 12 11:13 PM

Mitt Romney Will Fundraise In The Hamptons On Sunday

It's kickback time for the republicans. Time for the 1% to give back to keep the Bush tax cuts for the 1% in effect. I mean without the tax cuts how can they possibly afford this fundraiser? The angel merino who placed the golden tablets in upstate New York will show us the way. Conservatives worried that gays are going to ruin the moral fabric of this country, the mormons fled outside of this country to escape persecution because of what they believed in was immoral to 19th century America. Joseph Smith and Brigham Young are dancing in their graves to think a mormon might become president!" Jul 3, 12 5:47 PM

Preparation For Road Widening Project On County Road 39 To Begin Shortly

They can't leave less than one lane open during construction than the one lane we already have. Widening the roads have helped everyone's quality of life out here. The old don't build it and they won't come was a traffic nightmare decision for many locals. Do you remember the two lane merge at lobster Inn or the traffic so thick you couldn't make a left onto 39 from North Sea Road?As of right now I try not to use any business east of Southampton because of traffic. Two lanes out to East Hampton would be smart for businesses." Jul 10, 12 1:49 PM

I think they should close up the Little Cobb Road entrance at rush hours,just like they did on Sebonac Road. The itsamazing obviously never had to sit in any type of morning commute. East ender now that you are here maybe you can prohibit anyone else from coming out here after you. Well they came and now we are dealing with it. If you are so unhappy, buy a few houses,tear'em down and become a farmer. How many farmers are left on the South Fork? That's right just a few. We are not going to stay a bucolic rural community WITHOUT ANY FARMERS." Jul 17, 12 7:10 PM

UPDATE: County Road 39 Reopens Six Hours After Crash

I get it. bad accident. However, investigate for an hour, clean up the road and get a lane open at least westbound so thousands of people don't have to suffer after a long hot day's work. Does the whole world out here have to come to a complete halt because of one motor vehicle accident. WLNG should be telling people not to go out to go shopping or anything not important to give working class a chance to get home. What is the evacuation plan if Sunrise is closed? Better have a boat. How hard is it to open and clean a space ten feet across!" Jul 24, 12 4:50 PM

anything that comes from bigfresh that disagrees with me is actually a compliment
" Jul 24, 12 7:19 PM

For you idiots that weren't out there, it was complete gridlock, yes even Old Montauk Highway. I feel for anybody in an accident. I talking about opening a sliver of lane so the world out here can at least get home. For you people sitting at home,don't comment you don't know what it is like. All I'm saying is keep it measured, a sliver of a lane is not going to disrupt the whole investigation." Jul 24, 12 7:28 PM

Very sorry for your family's traumatic experience yesterday. Obviously any normal person would want police and medical teams to take as much time is needed to secure the scene, and quickly,safely expedite those who were injured. My problem is what happens after that has been taken care of. You don't live here. You weren't part of the chaos that occured during the wild fires in WH or the summer blackout. Waiting to get to an intersection with hundreds of cars in front of me and hundreds of cars in back of me. Getting to a light that was long enough for three cars to pass while there was no traffic going diagonally and no policeman to expedite traffic. Years later there still is no plan. When we have another emergency say a hurricane, will we be like Galveston, Texas where people waited fourteen hours to get out. Running out of gas while the roadway heading in the opposite direction was completely vacant. Again very sorry for your traumatic experience." Jul 25, 12 11:44 AM

It was leaving the east end not coming into it were the delays. Your obviously high or from out of state to think we don't have evacuation problems." Jul 26, 12 12:36 PM
