  • The man is speaking plainly.

    Emton is another example of our fellow citizens who can’t discern style from substance.

    Go back to American Idol and stay out of politics.

  • Of course substance over style. But lack of civility can impede progress…eg calling Amper names is proabably not helpful.

  • Stop the recreation, sports fields, senior centers, housing proposals, ski slopes, etc. at EPCAL – Stop wasting all of the land at EPCAL for such projects. EPCAL should be used solely for industries who can create “real” jobs for people in Riverhead. This piece of land is perfect for industry and if the powers to be in Riverhead start working they can find plenty of “clean” industries that can create these jobs. Stop wasting space on all of these other projects. The senior center is closed because it is a poor location – a “Y” will follow the same fate. This property was meant to be developed – it is not a wild life refuge, arboretum, a grassland or a spot for recreation, housing, ski slopes, etc.

  • Perhaps another word like garbage should have been used instead of crap when referring to the master plan, but no matter what word the political correct people want to use the master plan does stink – like garbage or crap does

  • How many times has Amper called his so called opponents names? Amper can call people names but it can’t go the other way – back to him who cast the first stone????

  • Effective communication is paramount in politics. Why shouldn’t we expect our representatives to carry out the skills of debate, negotiation, and diplomacy in a responsible manner and with respectful decorum?

    And I can’t help but point out the hypocrisy of your call to abandon style for substance while resorting to an ad hominem attack.

  • the reality is riverhead and wading river are no longer one horse towns.its a disgrace that a master plan has given WR. a half million dollar boat ramp thats useless at most tides,a public beach thats accessable to non residents but perhaps a second supermarket would other than KK could be in order.
