"And why not?"

Too bad about the beautiful facilities on Rt 58, and Wilmott's "brilliant" assist to shut down the Shoreham reactor, which you're paying double for now in LIPA rates.

The car dealer ads were the best part of that rag.

Good Bye to Mr. Wilmont's Paper I enjoyed reading it so much. I do hope he enjoys a healthy and happy retirement from the newspaper.

Funny...I used to line the hamster cage with it, then it stopped showing up! No loss. Wilmott is a pompous blowhard.
You try running a newspaper prior to commenting or do anything else worth while

Relevant news?
This GOP pandering Christian Right-wing newsrag was in complete denial to anything it didn't like and ignored the flaws of things it did, like the Crookhaven Republicans as they were being hauled off to jail. And the editorial had every reason in the world to blame everything other than their own greed.
Good riddance to paper that only printed things like "Local park closed due to termite investation" or some other silly nonsense.
good riddance.
WOW what a great letter, totaly agree with this letter. If you didnt agree with wilmont you became his enemy..thank goodness ths rag will no longer be sent to our homes

Dave was a cheap bastard and a hypocrit. He took advantage of young reporters and never cared about neww, other than his POS editorials. He violated OT laws, by including 15 hours of OT in a measly check. In the mid-90s, he paid reporters a set $275 a week (including the OT. Neither he nor his rag will be missed.

Good riddance. I wouldn't have lined the bottom of a bird cage with that right wing trash. A bird deserves better.
