Letters to the Editor

As a longtime part-time resident of East Hampton and western Nassau County, I was amazed as to how many anti-Bush demonstrations we would encounter going from place to place in the 10 months preceding the 2008 presidential election. Some, especially the one in front of the Southampton 7-Eleven...

On the front page of The New York Times a headline read, “At G.E. on Tax Day, Billions of Reasons to Smile.”

One has to wonder if Richard Higer, a regular on these pages, would benefit from widening his source material for his diatribes outside his admitted main source of information, The New York Times. If that were the case, he might be reminded that the Congressional Budget Office is only committed to evaluating on the legislative assumptions...

While Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac execs rob the taxpayers of millions of our dollars with their multimillion-dollar salaries, the federal government hides another $2 billion in Obamacare for bailouts...

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...

attended the Springs School budget meetings. I pay taxes in Springs, and I am in shock.

Landowners in Springs cannot support the Springs Board of Education’s increased annual budget. Eighty-four employees is too many. Then to give a $20,000 raise to the Springs School superintendent this year, with high unemployment in New York State, seems almost insane! It smells of favoritism.

I just read the obituary of Helen Pugh of Montauk. I am remembering her kindness and her devotion to her community.

The Pugh family would like to briefly thank all of those who recently supported us following the death of my mother, Helen.
