Why Did All of the Lifeguards at Ho Hum Beach Quit?

y Larry Sribnick

There’s been a lot of speculation as to why all of the Lifeguards at Ho Hum Beach quit on Friday, July 17th. In researching this story we came across a lot of anecdotal and speculative information, but little hard information as to what happened, why, and what was now going to happen. For that reason, we held off publishing much information until we felt we had given both sides a chance to explain their positions to us. We feel we now have enough information to proceed with the story. Click here for more information.

A New Editorial:  Enough is Enough

From The EditorI’ve now sat through, relatively quietly for me, two Village Board Meetings, one Village Board Work Session, and two Community Meetings held by the Village Board regarding the proposed Bellport Village Sewer System. I’ve read, and published on Bellport.com, the report H2M prepared for the Village and I’ve read and published the information that was given out by H2M at the two Community Meetings. I’ve watched the countless hours that everyone has put into this so far and I’ve watched the price the Village has paid for all of the work, so far, go from $20,000, to $25,000, and now, according to Mayor Fell at the last Community Meeting, we’ve reached $30,000 and this is only the beginning.
