Systematic Disregard

Last summer, I stopped by Cars East at the Empire gas station on North Main street in East Hampton because I needed to add steering fluid in an old car that I drive. And when they asked me to leave my car, I suggested I had better not, as I was in a lawsuit with the owners...

Longer-Term Good

Sometimes it’s the public, not just a private individual or business, that has to yield immediate benefits for the sake of sound long-term planning. Your carefully thought-out editorial about Bostwick’s current effort to get a permit for a new roof makes the point about a typical case.

Sham Meeting

Well here we go again, the town board is considering holding another farce meeting on the leaf-pickup program. They didn’t listen to the residents the first time so why waste our time again?

True Measure

In an act of professional integrity, Isabel Madison quietly pointed to a piece of paper she handed out at the second public hearing last week Tuesday. The piece of paper was the tax bill you can expect to receive in December 2011...

No One Home
