Whats the matter "Crookhaven officals" not making a buck on this guys mulch pile ?

Your leaf pile is to damb big , whaaa whaaaa

If Crookhaven officals ran a lemonaid stand they would force people to buy it at $35 a glass and then still claim they are losing money and need to raise prices.

Check this out,

The wishful thinkers are at it again.

Every few years, when the stink of corruption rises out of the woodlands here and some powerful public official is indicted, a few residents of this immense town that cuts Long Island in half convince themselves that things will be different this time. The bums will be thrown out. The system will change.

That is what they said in 1992, when John McNamara, a developer and car dealer caught in a $436 million fraud against General Motors, told Federal prosecutors he had bribed a host of Brookhaven town officials with cash, cars and contracts in exchange for approval of his real estate projects. But only three town officials were convicted. Two who were acquitted quietly returned to the public payroll, and the headlines faded with the local Republican machine still firmly in control.

They said the same thing in the 1980's, when more than 100 witnesses were called before a Suffolk County grand jury investigating corruption...

That's funny !

If anyone is worried about the soil or water a golf course is now considered by some to be analogous to a toxic waste dump !

Take a look from google earth at the golf course next to this "mulching" place, do you have any idea how much toxic bug killer and nitrogen they dump every year ? TONS !

Fertilizers, whether they are artificial or organic, cause serious problems when they contaminate freshwater and marine ecosystems. The same nutrients in fertilizers that nourish crops, lawns, and golf courses can cause rapid growth of algae, also known as an algal bloom. Dying algae in turn feed bacteria, which consume so much dissolved oxygen that fish and plants cannot survive. Some species of algae also produce toxins that can be harmful to humans.

Pesticides are toxic and have become major source of pollution, and even the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants states that 10 of the 12 most dangerous and persistent organic chemicals are pesticides.

But of course on Longisland where the narcissistic game of "my lawn is greener that yours" is a very very popular sport, no one wants to take a look at this at all.

Taxes on Long Island are higher than Beverly Hills and Hawaii combined. Good to see this is where those dollars go.

Imagine that, such a crappy place as Mastic being much more expensive to live than beautiful Maui. Look it up, it's true!

Long Islanders are the dumbest people alive!
