Letters to the Editor 1/30/14

Dear Editor,
I thought it was illegal to discharge rifles on Long Island? I am opposed to the dangerous deer cull and if any one gets injured or property gets damaged it will cost more than a 3-year sterilization program. I hope everyone will remember to never vote in any of the politicians who voted for this horrendous cull, thank you

Slipped Through the Cracks   Dear Bryan: I was not able to make the meeting regarding Watchcase Project this past week. However was happy to read the letter in the Sag Harbor Express from the board of Save Sag Harbor. It was most appreciated. I still don’t understand, however, how the “heights and “closeness” to one [...]

Reimagine Parking at School   Dear Bryan, I would like to update the October 24 article on the school parking brouhaha with good news. As you know, many community members were not happy that the school had proposed the same parking proposal as with the failed 2009 bond. After the school administration realized this, Dr. [...]

Take the Time   To the Editor: As a senior citizen and Sag Harbor taxpayer, I find it very appalling that voted-in officials cannot take five to 10 minutes to answer a call relating to a Sag Harbor question. My deepest sympathies. Florence M. O’Connell Sag Harbor   Chance to Solve Problem   To the [...]

Find Creative Parking Solutions   Dear Bryan, The Sag Harbor School District bond being put forward for a vote on November 13, includes work on parking lots at the elementary and high school.

Something Wrong   Dear Editor: The Sag Harbor School District has just reported a net surplus of $2.8 million from the 2012-13 school taxes we’ve paid. Great! Good for them! So we’ll be taxed less next year? NO…..THAT’S A BIG NO.   That “extra” $2.8 million has already disappeared into the school’s mysterious “reserve funds”. Bye bye, $2.8 [...]

4-Posters Don’t Work   Dear Bryan: In a letter to the editor on August 22, 2013, I cited by name and quoted from five science studies that show that all warm blooded animals — field mice, squirrels, chipmunks, birds, rabbits, raccoons, etc. — carry ticks. (All of the studies are available online to everyone.) Thus, [...]

Address the Source Dear Editor: While I laud the Sag Harbor Express editorial on water quality (“Ticking Clock,” September 12, 2013) and its call for all concerned to band together to develop strategies to deal with the issue, I believe it misses the most crucial point — the ultimate cause of the problem. For more [...]

Hot Seat (9/26/13)

Posted on 27 September 2013

For some restaurants, it is almost like a right of passage upon moving into Sag Harbor — being cited by code enforcement for having too many seats. As a business, we understand the need to capitalize on the summer season and the abundance of people who come to our region enjoying our beaches, our vistas [...]

Out of Scale Dear Editor: I am writing to applaud your editorial “Still Too Big” in the September 5, 2013 issue of The Express. It is crucial that our last remaining waterfront not be bungled!!! Yes, the buildings that are existing must be dealt with, but 20 condos (24 including 2 West Water St.) over [...]
