Despite Objections, Southampton Town Board Appoints OTB Official To Top Management Post

No one mentions the 40k plus in benefits, what are these benefits and how does anyone who comes from OTB, an organization that has lost money for years, get a job managing money. He is unqualified just because of that." Nov 30, 10 1:38 PM

Remsenburg And Speonk Taxpayers Will Vote On $5.7 Million School Expansion Project Tuesday

Sorry to disagree with the addition put I've lived in the district for 10 years and there has been no increase in enrollment. In addition the school district spends approximately 30% of its budget on special education, which is amazing as my kids always said that there were almost no special need children or spanish speaking kids in the school. Remsenburg is a great school district but they spend way to much on extra instructors to make sure that all the kids get the highest possible grades on all the standardized tests. I know this gets them a blue ribbon award which is nice but these extravagent school spending plans have to stop. Doesn't matter that it only cost a few dollars a month. It adds up. Do what everyone else is doing, make do with what you have." Dec 2, 10 1:22 PM

New Sag Harbor Teachers Contract Pays More But Bumps Up Health Care Contribution

I hope the poor teachers and administrators were able to weather the economic storm that the rest of us have had to endure without knowing how much of a raise they were getting. By the way I've taken a 20% pay cut just to stay employed. I think I will start a fundraiser for the indigent of Sag Harbor School District. You people are pathetic. Have a nice holiday season."

Construction Bond Rejected By Remsenburg-Speonk School District Voters

It's a question of controlling runnaway school spending. By the way I drive a 10 year old car and have never been to starbucks. Can't retire at 55 with a 100k pension and free medical." Dec 8, 10 9:15 AM

New Sag Harbor Teachers Contract Pays More But Bumps Up Health Care Contribution

New York has the highest per pupil spending in the US, Long Island has the highest in the state and the east end schools the highest on long island. Do the math. Pay raises whats that. Work only 188 days a year, lets pro rate that pay for onlyworking 3/4 of a year and lets not forget the pensions that are strangling us. Maybe the teachers would like to get paid for bathroom breaks, they get paid for everything else. Some private colleges are cheaper per student then what we pay on LI. Don't hate educators I hate the unions that are bleeding us dry.Don't quote what the average salary is in the US quote what the average is on Long Island, if the average teacher/administrator here was making 40k then I'd say they are underpaid but that is not the case." Dec 8, 10 10:49 AM

Grading papers on weekends the average teacher only works 4 1/2 hours a day, have 70 more days off then the rest of us. Get paid for every little extra things they do. Lets not forget the insane pensions for working 3/4 of a year. Did you review the highest pension in NY state in last weeks Newsday 9 of the top 10 Long Island and all over 200k. You have got to be kidding me. And i don't see any of the east end schools in the top 10 academically on Long Island. Have never seen and Intel or Seimens finalist from the east end. You all have it made stop uour whinning." Dec 14, 10 1:13 PM

Eastport South Manor School District Accepts Remnant Of September 11th Terrorist Attacks

I agree I think this event has been over memorilized. Having walked down 90 flights of stairs that day I feel I have the right to say that. I mean no disrespect to anyone but I think it's time to move on. Its been 9 years already. I also don't believe that it is the place of school administrators to be involved in this issue. RIP all of my fellow employees who died that day." Dec 23, 10 10:25 AM

Just another lazy incompetant public service beurocrat." Dec 23, 10 10:32 AM

New Sag Harbor Teachers Contract Pays More But Bumps Up Health Care Contribution

Can't take a vacation when they want. Let me see a week at Christmas, a week in February a week at Easter and 10 weeks in the summer I feel real sorry for Nature. Only 13 weeks off and better benefits and pensions than 99 % better than most of the population. I don't know how you survive. Can't take sick days who are you kidding. Most get 10 a year oh I forgot you only work 2/3 of a year. I'm glad you all have masters degrees which you also get paid extra for. Extra for lunch duty extra for this or that. Your masters degree in history wouldn't get you anything in the real world. Don't forget the high taxes are a result of overspending in the school districts. Time to consolidate all schools at the county level. This money sucking machine must fixed" Dec 25, 10 2:52 PM

Police Investigate Shooting In Tuckahoe

My car was recently hit in a 7-11 parking lot and the person fled. Cops got him 3 days later. An hispanic man with no licence no insurance and the car was registered to someone else in SC. I agree with those readers who know about the insurance scams. The police told me right off that the chances of the person having a license were slim. I guess they've seen enough of these scams. Thanks for the fast work catching the person but I know I will not get compensated for the damage." Jan 18, 11 12:43 PM

Kerr Won't Seek Reelection To Remsenburg-Speonk School Board

They did show up to vote. Just because the vote didn't go the board's way don't assume it would of been different if more people showed up. I wish these school boards, who individually are not not qualified to run a business feel they know whats best. It's an ego thing. Remsenburg is a great school but lets not think they they cannot educate unless they build a bigger school. The school population has not changed in years. Learn to do your job without whinning about what you don't have. The rest of us cannot stand all these schools crying about money and facilities when they are the best payed and have benefits that all of the rest of us can only dream of." Jan 19, 11 11:27 AM

School Districts Worried About State Property Tax Cap

I have had to survive with a 20% pay cut i think our bloated school districts should be able to survive on a 2% increase. Soon those bloated pensions will be a thing of the past. Time for all the school administrators to sound the warning bell on how it will hurt the childred. Time to consolidate all schools into a county school system, then we can eliminate the excess, but wait that means that all the local power brokers won't be abble to run their fiefdoms into the ground."

Montauk Residents File $25 Million Lawsuit Over Erosion

I hope that these spoiled idiots lose and are required to re-imburse the town triple the cost of the lawsuit. Thejetties were ther before they built their houses. How arogant of these moroons to think that they could build on sand on the ocean and that nothing would happen. Given enough time the entire shoreline on Long Island will recede. Remember LI was created by a glacier only 20,000 years ago. By its very nature it is an unstable place at best. I hope their houses fall into the ocean and they get NOTHING." Jan 26, 11 11:34 AM

Eastport South Manor School District Braces For Budget Cuts

Why are salaries going up when everyone else in the country are getting by with less and less. There should be no salary increases and all personnel in the district should be footing more of their health care costs. Lets wake up folks this inefficient school system needs drastic change."

Brookhaven Town Board Rejects Eastport Hamlet Centre Plan

Eastport is such a nice little town there is no need for any more retail space. If there is something one needs that they cannot get in the King Kullen shopping center then they can go to Riverhead. Thanks for rejecting the proposal. Lets keep some of Long Island the way it is. Eastport, East Moriches, and The Speonk-Remsenburg area is just fine. We don't need to look like Medford or be overcrowded in the summer like the east end." Feb 3, 11 11:09 AM

Attorney Asks For $70 Million Judgment Against Southampton Town

Could you imagine if person was not arrested and started shooting people,everyone would of been sreaming how come the police didn't arrest her. I hope when she loses her lawsuit the judge makes her and her attorney reimburse the town and county for their costs. These BS lawsuits have to stop. When they pass a law, which they won't that requires the loser to reimburse the contra party this nonsense will stop." Feb 9, 11 1:16 PM

Bridgehampton School Board Hires Former Superintendent As Consultant

200 dollars an hour lets see that's 400k per year, for what or they can't say. Why can't these overpaid administrators do their jobs? I think there should be a state law that caps the salary at 1 dollar less than the governor makes. He makes 179,000.00 a year to runa state with a budget of 50 billion and hundreds of thousand employees. How can any administrator justify making more when running a district with perhaps 100 to 150 employees. People wake up this BS must stop." Feb 10, 11 11:40 AM

School Districts Facing Drastic State Aid Cuts Next Year

Look at the cost per student in these districts and you don't need to go any further. NYS has the highest cost per student in the country and some of these districts spend between 50 to 150 percent more than the average. The mismanagement can be tied directly to those in charge, administrators whose only concern is keeping the staus quo, when times are tough they cry about cutting programs and hurting the childred. They only care about benefits and pensions that are so generous that people in the private sector can only dream about. Time to contribute to your healthcare and time to eliminate pensions, how about 401k's like the rest of us." Feb 16, 11 1:46 PM
