To the editor:

In reading your editorial in last week’s edition of the News-Review, you end the article with the words “Phil’s Restaurant in Wading River will open a new location next year at Meeting House Creek in Aquebogue.”

Have all the permits been approved for that to happen? Actually, wasn’t that supposed to happen this past September, according to an article in your newspaper? Then you had to update your coverage, since during the last week before the scheduled closing of Meeting House Creek Inn, that restaurant’s owner signed another year-long lease.

Also, you have published an advertisement from the Jamesport Manor Inn as being “the only restaurant on the North Fork that is offering Sunday brunch.” This is just not true. Why do you totally ignore the Meetinghouse Creek Inn restaurant that is currently open in Aquebogue, and has remained open and has been offering a Sunday buffet brunch probably for most of their 20 plus years in operation? Why are they being ignored? I like the Meetinghouse Creek Inn, Tom, Leslie and their staff.

It’s a great local restaurant that offers good food and a friendly atmosphere. Let’s not rush them out of business.

It makes me cringe every time I read some dopey, negative response regarding the gasoline project at United Riverhead Terminal. What’s worse is the fact that every single person in opposition has no problem utilizing the so-called “volatile fuel” in their car, truck, or Jet Ski.  (more…)

To the Editor:

I am aware there might be a handful of people in our community who are not opposed to United Riverhead Terminal’s expansion because, as originally reported in this paper, the expansion was supposedly intended for emergency gasoline storage.  (more…)
