East Hampton Town

Lifeline for Life Saving Station
    Exterior repairs and restoration of the historic Amagansett Life Saving Station will be done gratis by Ben Krupinski, an East Hampton resident and contractor.
    After attending a recent re-enactment of the Nazi landing on nearby Atlantic Avenue beach during World War II, Mr. Krupinski offered to do the work, which will include installing authentic window replacements.
    The life-saving station, which was a private residence off Bluff Road for many years, was donated to the town by the Carmichael family and moved to its original location on Atlantic Avenue. A committee has been formed to raise money so that it can be restored and opened to the public.

Sloppy Tuna in Trouble
    The East Hampton Town Board will hold a hearing on Aug. 14 on whether to suspend a music permit issued to the Sloppy Tuna in Montauk, which has received its fourth citation for violating the town noise ordinance this summer.
    The town code calls for a mandatory hearing to occur after a fourth alleged violation. Members of the public may attend and comment. The hearing will be held during a regularly scheduled town board work session at the Montauk Firehouse, which begins at 10 a.m.

THE SLOPPY TUNA IS THE BEST THING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO MONTAUK! •TOURISM IS UP BECAUSE OF THE SLOPPY TUNA. •TOWN REVENUE IS WAY UP •THE SLOPPY TUNA PUT MONTAUK ON THE MAP •PEOPLE ARE TRAVELING FROM EVERYWHERE TO WAIT ON LINE AND DANCE/PARTY/EAT AT THE SLOPPY TUNA. IF THE PLACE GETS SHUT DOWN MONTAUK LOSES A LOT MORE THAN 'JUST ANOTHER VENUE'. WHAT THE SLOPPY TUNA HAS DONE IS SIMPLY AMAZING! THE TOWN SHOULD BE THANKING THEM, NOT GIVING THEM VIOLATIONS. THEY HAVE CELEBRITY DJ STACY STYLEZ DJ'ING VERY OFTEN. SHE'S A GREAT DJ AND VERY PROFESSIONAL. I AM SURE SHE KNOWS HOW TO MONITOR THE LEVELS AND KEEP IT UNDER THE RAIDER. THEY ARE BEING PICKED ON BECAUSE THE OTHER ESTABLISHMENTS FEEL THE SLOPPY TUNA IS TAKING AWAY BUSINESS FROM THEM. THERE IS PLENTY TO GO AROUND. I PERSONALLY WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR FINALLY MAKING MY HOME TOWN (MONTAUK) A COOL PLACE TO LIVE AND BETTER THAN THE HAMPTONS, THE SLOPPY TUNA NEEDS TO BE HERE!
