Anthony Josephs had no liquor license, served spaghetti with an entree' that was the consistency of a heavy wet mop...never experienced it that bad before ! And somehow canned music is actually better than entertainment where an old white guy trying to do a spot on Louis Armstrong imitation on "What A Wonderful World". ACE Hardware in Rocky Point was as disappointing a shopping experience, as was a previous Costello owned ACE franchise store in Stony Brook...the smart ACE uniforms and the microphones can't make up for a lack of general hardware expertise in their largely young staff. Rocky Point Hardware will have no problem up against this nightmare. Shop Local...really Local !

If you are a local "civic organization" like ABCO...Affiliated Brookhaven Civic Organization Inc....it looks like you don't want our local economy to grow by a proven, successful company like Wal Mart. You have to ask yourself WHY do some national companies get better treatment than others in the Town ? Maybe it's about the "campaign money" $$$$$$$ ?

What is so "civic" about keeping jobs OUT of Brookhaven, and not wanting to improve the Town tax base in these hard economic times ? "Walmart Is BACK AGAIN...Civics join with Chambers of Commerce to Stop Project Approval by Town Written by President Tuesday, 27 December 2011 ABCO is pleased to join and urge other local civics and grassroot organizations in assisting the coordinated work with the Bellport Chamber of Commerce to Stop a Walmart in East Patchogue The Bellport Chamber of Commerce is taking a more active role in fighting Walmart in East Patchogue. Please help us. See the flyer below - we are fundraising so we can: 1) do a mailing to the area residents 2) print signage 3) advertise in local newspapers to get the word out 4) Hire a wildlife and ecosystem engineer to establish what species will be bulldozed if this goes thru 5)Hire a Rare plant specialist to establish what rare plant species will be affected At a minimum, we are requesting that our Planning Board request from Walmart a supplemental Environmental Study be performed as the current EIS accepted as complete is grossly lacking in how this proposed Walmart will affect the Ecology, Traffic and Climate Change of the area. Monday January 9th 2012 is the FINAL public hearing with our Brookhaven Town Planning Board." http://abcoonline.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=902&Itemid=1
