Do you people think living in Laurel Hollow is cheap? Trabich has big bills to pay. Without an honestly earned income to cover all of those bills, he was forced to turn to crime. Have some pity for him. He was only trying to pretend that he actually belongs in Laurel Hollow - at honest taxpayers' expense. It's the American way!

I would venture to say that rounds in the last five years at Bergan is way under 50,000 now. The course is again is disrepair for the last 6 years. It is sad when you can show up at a public course on a Sat or Sunday in the summer and walk right out (if you would want to play a course in such terrible condition).

The Bethpage contract is another scam. Throw Global out of golf, they are bad for Long Island golfers.

There actually is an American Equipment and Supply company : one is in North Carolina and the other is in Virginia. The one in N.C. sells new and used earth moving equipment. I haven't a clue if this is the same company listed on the invoices. The DA said they couldn't find such a company in the corportation records. I assmue they meant NYS.

Now I am probably wrong on this, but I thought it was worth mentioning considering the same 'investigators' were unable to find a Bruce Demps in a NYS prison, and were unable to find a beach in Belle Terre - Marty Tankleff case.

They only find what they want to find - nothing more.

Anyway, the golf guy sounds like a crook to me, but who knows when it comes to Spota.
Wouldn't surprise me a bit if they couldn't find a Sherman tank in the middle of the 9th hole.

In the case I have written about concerning a relative - they couldn't find a witness who lived and worked in Suffolk County. AND they couldn't find a cop working in their own police department for more than TWO YEARS!!!

According to this info, Trabich gave money to Sawicki who repaid the gesture by turning him over to the DA. LOL

This is a serious question
I don't follow your thinking.

I don't disagree, nor do I necessarily agree. I don't know. enlighten me. But I'm willing to listen

-In what ways is Global Golf, bad for LI golfers?
1: new carts for each of the past 2
years.
2: rental prices are in line w/other
courses.

Remember the state has actual control, and they set the rules for ther contractor to enforce.

To tell you the truth Bethpage pro shop is top notch but most credit goes to Joe Rehor director of golf.

The driving range stinks, I liked it better when it was a ski hill.

As for Bergen, it has improved..but it took a LONG time to do so, way to long in fact and I wouldn't be surprised if there were more hidden costs.

This dude has a nice racket going where tons of expenses can be hidden because he is dealing with public park funds here. The campaign contributions show he's in kahoots with our various Jewish lawmakers. Hmmm.

Your points were well taken:

And then you lost your creditability
with your anti-semitic remarks Bigotry does not belong in this discussion

Bigotry, rascism, intolerance
equals
low class, lack of intelligence, ignorance.

too bad you started out so promosing

It's amazing how quickly the public voice will try and convict a man before he's had his day in court. And it's a tribute to the founding fathers that the accused is protected from lynch mobs.
