Slide Show: North Fork Little League Parade

04/16/2011 3:58 PM |

Kids from Little League teams across the North Fork took part in the annual Little League opening day parade in Peconic Saturday afternoon. There was a healthy turnout despite a bone-chilling wind and temperatures hovering near 40 degrees. Players joined parents and coaches in the march toward the 2011 baseball season beginning at the recreation center and ending at the field in Tasker Park, where everyone enjoyed live music, hot dogs and soda.

  • Surprise, surprise: another major loss for Riverhead involving allegations of discriminatory conduct and favors for the friends and family network.

    Will it be too long before the Town gets hit with a multimillion dollar verdict thanks to Sandmine Sean and his equally incompetent cronies?

  • About time!! Three cheers for justice, however long it took to be served.

  • It’s about damn time…let’s get that go kart track going and get some racing on the track.

  • Way to go F1. Stand up for blatant injustice that was done by the Cardinale/Blass Administration. It takes a Federal Judge to take down the local sheriff and his henchmen deputies. Justice is on your side. So if there truly is a new sheriff in town, let him start by offering you serious money for all of your damages and the unwarranted aggravation you incurred. Words are cheap. Action is loud. Don’t stop now, don’t even slow down. Bravo.

  • If the “New Sheriff in town” is serious about settleing this lawsuit (and saving the taxpayers millions in damages from this lawsuit) then he could easily do so by instructing his planning board and planning department to accept and approve the F1 fEIS and the F1 Site Plan at the same time as F1 drops the lawsuits. The Director of Planning and the Planning Board’s failure to comply with his directions should be cause for dismissal and other measures. As every month adds over ten thousand dollars to the damages tally, I challenge the Supervisor to “Get This DONE” before the end of April, 2010 and stop wasting taxpayer dollars on ego driven lawsuits. Come on Supervisor – get personally involved and help your planning department come up with an acceptable and fair settlement that moves this project forward.

  • My family has been waiting to hear this good news for a long te and can’t wait to get out on the track and have some fun. Will also be great to be able to have some lunch during racing in their restarant. Well the wait is over.

  • Bravo! Justice finally prevails! Maybe you shouldn’t spend that $500,000k for a new study on the EPCAL property just yet Mr “New Sheriff in town” ! ! Seems you might be needing it to pay for a portion of the lawsuit you will be loosing.

  • What a shame their investors backed out.

  • Too bad you don’t know what you are talking about! We are ready to invest and build a world class venue.

  • It was a long time coming. Thanks for sticking to your guns F-1. Has anybody ever thought how many have walked away because of the politics of it all. Creating jobs and quality of life requires creative thinkers working together. There is a place for every Islanders passions. It should never have to come to this.

  • The slide show doesn’t work.
