DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 13 www.danshamptons.com DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 14 www.danshamptons.com How To Buy A New High Efficiency Heating and/or Cooling System At Our Cost. Yes, it's absolutely true you can actually replace your old (and probably very inefficient)warm air furnace and add-on or replace an air conditioning system at the same time AT OUR COST! Let Me Explain. This winter got off to a rather mild start and slowed our equipment sales. To make matters worse, the months of January, February, and March are normally slow anyway, but this year there are usually slow. So, I decided to create a buying incentive to hopefully drive enough business so they I can keep my entire staff busy until things pick up as they usually do in the spring. How I Created a Win-Win Scenario I went to one of my manufacturers and made a purchase commitment of 47 heating and cooling systems. And because of the time of year and them being slow if their contractors are slow, I was able to buy them at drastically reduced prices. By putting this furnace and air conditioner package together and guaranteeing the manufacturer the volume to offset the price difference, I was able to buy both the furnace and air conditioner for less than I would normally pay at any other time of the year! Plus, this before the typical price increase they usually pass along at the beginning of every year. So, if you buy one of these premium systems, I am giving you the complete system AT OUR COST. If you would like to be one of the 47 homeowners to get a new heating and cooling system at the best price I would ever dream of selling one for (and with no money down), give Tina a call right now at 631-727-2760 and she will explain how you can take advantage of this amazing offer. So Here's The Deal... > FREE comfort survey & energy analysis of your home � A $295.00 value > Buy a new heating OR cooling system and get 12% off (our profit) our everyday printed price and a UV Germicidal Light (a $795.00 value) installed for half price � You save $397.50. OR... > Purchase a complete heating AND cooling system and get 12% off. Also, get the Ultra Violet Germicidal Light PLUS a high efficiency air cleaner (a $595.00 value), both for half price � You save $695.00! > Two (2) years of FREE preventative maintenance � Up to $400.00 value > FREE ten (10) years parts and labor no repair cost warranty � an $895.00 value. > Up to $1,000.00 in rebates for Lennox. > No money down and no payments or interest for twelve (12) months with approved credit. Ironclad Guarantee. If we don't meet all of our promises and guarantees, which we will share with you in writing, and if you're not 100% satisfied with every aspect of your SameDay Heating & Air experience we'll return ALL of your money! No Questions Asked. You Can't Lose! This is our exclusive one year test-drive satisfaction money-back guarantee. How Can You Get This Offer? Call Now! Call Tina at 631-727-2760 today, and she will set up a visit with one of our Comfort Advisors to come by and perform a No Cost No Obligation Comfort Survey and Energy Analysis to evaluate your existing system, home comfort needs, and prove to you how much in energy dollars you can save by replacing your old inefficient system now. He will show you which system he recommends for your home and explain why that system is best for you. This is a free on-site evaluation and you are under no obligation to buy anything � EVER! Offer Absolutely, Positively Ends March 15th. Our business always picks back up again in early April with spring turning people's thoughts to air conditioning and the summer heat waves and the manufacturer specially discounted prices will go away. So, we will stop all special sales on our March 15th cut-off date or after we sell the 47 systems, whichever comes first, no exceptions. This will allow us time to properly install all new systems before the weather breaks and we get busy again. The only reason we are making this offer is to keep our team of technicians busy during one of the slowest times of the year. Our loss can be your gain if you act now and call Tina at 631-727-2760 and have one or our Comfort Advisors give you your special price and extra equipment at tremendous savings. Thank you for reading about our program and in advance for your consideration, I hope you "profit" greatly as a result.

The brick radio room is on the beach. The navy barracks is in the foreground. Nazis landed 200 yards away. At 3 a.m. on June 13, both crews were hard at work, hoping the other wouldn't notice them. Amagansett, 1942 Nazi and American Spies Worked 200 Yards apart and Didn't Know It By Dan Rattiner One of the most fascinating historical events ever to take place in the Hamptons was the landing of four Nazi spies in Amagansett during World War II. They came ashore in rubber boats from a German submarine on June 13, 1942 in the middle of the night, buried their gear, Nazi uniforms, weapons, money and the explosives they intended to use at a later date for sabotage. And they put on civilian clothes that would make people who might see them think they were surfcasters, walked to the Amagansett Railroad Station and took the morning train to New York City. They carried fishing poles. The landing at Amagansett and a similar one in Ponte Vedra, Florida two weeks later, were the only occasions in American history when uniformed soldiers of a country we were at war with successfully breached the defenses of mainland United States. That both groups, now in civilian clothes and never Dan Rattiner is the founder of Dan's Papers. His memoir, In the Hamptons: Fifty Years With Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Billionaires and Celebrities will be published by Harmony Books this May. having done any harm, were apprehended within a few weeks of the landing does not change that fact. Now it turns out that the landing of the soldiers at the spot where Atlantic Avenue dead ends at the beach (and where Atlantic Avenue Beach is today), came within 300 yards of disrupting a secret and war-altering Navy operation taking place in a small oceanfront brick house within sight of the spot public for the first time. Hefner gave a talk about his find last Friday evening at the Clinton Academy Museum on Main Street in East Hampton. The place was packed with people, and was standing room only. Hefner not only had papers, but also photographs of this operation in Amagansett that he projected on a screen and spoke about with the help of a PowerPoint indicator. "In the course of things, I learned that one of the Navy men involved in this operation was Vito DeMai, who, after the war, came to settle here in Amagansett and lives in town today. I spoke to him about it last week. `I don't know if I have permission to tell you anything about this,' he said." The brick building and the secret operation inside had begun in 1940, two years before. At that time, America was not at war and Pearl Harbor had not yet taken place. The local people knew there was something going on there. But they were completely mistaken about what it was. Twenty years earlier, in 1920, two huge 500-foot-tall steel towers were constructed in Napeague, halfway between Amagansett and Montauk, to use Morse code to communicate (continued on page 20) The Radiomen just kept working, hoping nobody would bother them. It was a busy 35 hours down at Atlantic Avenue Beach. where the Nazis came ashore. The existence of this operation, which dramatically altered the course of World War II, was not known until a few months ago, when local historian Bob Hefner was in Washington researching Life Saving Stations and Coast Guard operations and happened to come across some top secret papers from that era that were being declassified and made DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 18 www.danshamptons.com mptons.com amptons.com amptons.com amptons.com amptons.com amptons.com amptons.com danshamptons.com danshamptons.com danshamptons.com danshamptons.com danshamptons.com danshamptons.com danshamptons.com danshampt danshampt danshampt danshampt danshampt danshampt danshampt South O' the Highway (and the North too) n e s In The Hamptons It's... www.

They were the wonder of the age and people, correctly, knew what they were all about. It therefore seemed no surprise to anybody that in 1940 the U. S. Navy would build this brick building on the beach and alongside it construct a series of 20-foot-tall aerials in a grid pattern. The Navy told anyone who asked that this was a Navy radio station monitoring the activities of the American naval ships at sea in the same way that the towers in Napeague were monitoring the ocean liners and freighters. People believed them. To get a full understanding of exactly what this station was involved with -- and there were 30 naval officers at work in three shifts 24 hours a day every day there (the single men lived in a barracks they built on Bluff Road at the back of the beach) -- you need to know the history of World War II. The attack on Pearl Harbor took place on December 7, 1941. However, more than two years earlier, on September 1, 1939, Hitler's armies invaded Poland. And within days, Germany was officially in a state of war with France and England, because those countries had treaties requiring them to defend Poland. Here in America, conservatives urged President Roosevelt to stay out of this conflict. But Roosevelt knew that if the huge German armies prevailed over both France and England, this would pose a serious threat to the security and integrity of America. Publicly, he announced that we would not Top: George Dasch, Bottom: Edward Kerling go to war. But he also announced that we had a treaty with England and would embark on a program of sending them weapons and supplies across the Atlantic by boat. We would become the "arsenal of democracy," he said in a speech. And so, in 1939, we began to turn out artillery guns and tanks and ammunition to send to the British on a lease basis. The Germans, however, were ready. They had by that time assembled a huge armada of submarines, which they called U-boats, and they declared that if anybody tried to send arms and guns to England, their U-boats would sink them. And sink them they did. In 1939 and 1940, thousands and thousands of American freighters were torpedoed and sunk in the Atlantic Ocean by U-boats, causing a huge loss of American lives. The number of ships that got through to England was less than half of what we were sending. It was turning into a disaster, and something had to be done, and quickly. The U-boats, it was known, operated in groups known as wolfpacks. Under water, they communicated with one another by radio. Roosevelt, meeting with his cabinet, ordered that large American warships accompany the freighters and be equipped with depth charges capable of blowing up Uboats underwater. He also ordered that a communications system be set up to eavesdrop on the Germans and determine the location of the wolfpacks so the warships could find them and the freighters avoid them. With the knowledge of a wolfpack, a freighter could outrun an underwater U-boat. On a wall map, four seaside locations in the continental United States were selected for the building of secret communications outposts that working together as a group could determine the whereabouts of the U-boats in the Atlantic.

It is an odd story, neither an example of an ever expanding real estate market nor an example of a slowly declining real estate market. It is a story involving a man who stole $40 million over a period of ten years, arguably because he wanted to buy pretty things for his girlfriend, and who is currently in jail. It's pretty remarkable. This house, which has 12 bedrooms and about 10,000 square feet, was originally built as a spec house by builder John Farrell of Bridgehampton. In the spring of 2006, a man named David Verhotz, who was in the banking business in Cleveland, drove out to have a look at it, approached Farrell and said he would like to buy it. Farrell told him it was only three quarters complete at the time, but Verhotz said he'd buy it anyway. He paid $5.7 million for it. And soon thereafter Farrell finished it up for him. Verhotz, however, never moved in. Instead, he got arrested by the Feds for embezzling $40 million from the bank he worked for. Verhotz had been, for ten years, the Vice President and director of Key Corp's International Division. He was in charge of global treasury management. That's a mouthful, but in plain English, it means his job was to approve Key Corporation loans to international banks at low interest rates that these banks would then lend at higher interest rates to their customers living back in America. Over this ten-year period, he would read a letter on stationery from a banker in Thailand or Norway or Belgium or Hong Kong, and check that it was legitimate, and then he'd authorize Key Corp to pay out the money. He made $110,000 a year in this job. Except that sometimes, on a slow day, Verhotz would look at the ceiling, pick a name (continued on the next page) BILLY JOEL AND THE END OF SHEA STADIUM By Dan Rattiner When Billy Joel sings, he often brings down the house. That happened at Radio City Music Hall last year when he broke some longstanding records for soldout concerts, that happened at Yankee Stadium when he broke some other longstanding records for soldout concerts, it's happened at Nassau Coliseum, and apparently it is now going to happen at Shea Stadium, where he is not only FIGURATIVELY going to be bringing down the house, but ACTUALLY bringing down the house. As you probably know, the New York Mets baseball team is getting a brand new stadium, which is currently under construction right in the parking lot next to the current stadium, Shea Stadium. The new stadium is expected to be completed by the end of this coming summer to be ready for the spring 2009 baseball season. And as soon as they declare it ready, and currently it is quite on schedule, they will begin tearing down Shea. This will probably be around October 1. All that will be left of Shea will be a stone marker. All the rest of the property will be the parking lot for the new stadium. Bye bye Shea. Well, the powers that be at the New York Mets have decided that when the time comes for the first wrecking ball to make an appearance, the weekend before that happens there ought to be a big concert in the place to send it on its way. According to Newsday, the concert will be performed by Long Island's super rock star Billy Joel. Who else could it be but Billy Joel? As for the date, well, it's not set in stone. The Mets collapsed last September and didn't (continued on page 26) DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 22 www.danshamptons.com Amazing (continued from previous page) out of the sky and arrange for himself to be that person -- a bank official at the Delix Bank in Brussels, for example. He had the stationery from these banks and would have the money sent to that bank official. Him. Since most of the other loans he approved were on the up and up, nobody noticed he was doing this for quite some time. All together during the ten years, he made 106 loans in which he got the money and instead of doing what the paperwork said would be done with it, just put it into his bank account. This is a little less than one a month. So maybe these bogus loans were coming in under the radar for a while when you consider all the other legitimate loans that were being approved by this fellow. In any case, according to the Feds, somebody finally noticed that these 106 banks not making regular monthly payments to Key -- Verhotz, as the "banker," would sometimes use money from new phony transactions to make payments on the old -- had all been approved by one particular banker at Key. It turned out that Verhotz, who had separated from his wife and was in the middle of divorcing her, had taken up with a New York woman named Kim Chan without telling her he was still married and, by that time, had bought, much of it for her, an 11.8 carat emerald cut diamond engagement ring worth more than $1 million, a Mercedes-Benz convertible CLK320, a Tiffany platinum/silver diamond necklace and bracelet, a diamond encrusted Patek Philippe watch, diamond earrings from David Verhotz, caught. Harry Winston worth $500,000, a condominium in Manhattan at 260 Park Avenue South worth $2.3 million and, from Farrell, the house on Parsonage Lane. The Feds seized it all. "When I first met him, I thought there was something rough about him," Mr. Farrell told me. "I keep up with many of the people I sell houses to. But I wasn't interested in doing that with this guy. He seemed to have an abrasive personality. And he didn't seem to be somebody who had this kind of money." A little over a year later, in September of 2007, Verhotz was in jail, Kim Chan was or was not sad and forlorn, and the Feds called Farrell to say that they had the house and all the other toys that Verhotz had bought, were looking for a missing $8.1 million and were interested in unloading the house back to Farrell. Farrell offered the Feds $6 million for it, which was $300,000 more than he had sold it for. He did it readily for two reasons. One was that he'd finished up the house and done a whole lot of landscaping. And the other was that he felt he could re-sell the house again pretty quickly for more money. In fact, after buying it from the feds for $6 million, he put it back on the market for $7.35 million figuring that it would sell right away because it was probably worth $8 million. He was right. "It sold in just three weeks," he said. "I was glad to get the re-sale done. Sometimes you just want to get something over with." Among other things, on each of the three occasions that this house was sold, a check was written to the Town of Southampton for about $120,000, once by Farrell, once by the Feds using Verhotz's ill gotten money, and once again by Farrell. This would be 2.5% of the sale price each time, a sum that is deposited in the Southampton Town Land Preservation Fund. Thank you very much, all of you. We'll make good use of it.

In the last three weeks, there's been quite a bit of it in the news. First it was about a beach video camera. For anybody not familiar with this, these are video cameras mounted on trees, posts or roofs of homes that point out to the beach so that the owner of the equipment, often a surfer, can offer the images of the wave action to one and all on a website. "Dude, it's gnarly at Ditch!" "On it." In this case, this particular beach video cam, valued at $8,000, was mounted on a tall, wooden post on the East Hampton oceanfront property owned by Jerry Della Femina. Della Femina, who is a generous man, had let the owner of the video cam, a surfer and exercise guru named Jimmy Minardi, put it there so Minardi could show the conditions of Main Beach in East Hampton to all the surfers and exercise folks who go to minarditraining.com. Sometime between 5 and 6 a.m. on December 5, somebody trespassed onto the Della Femina property and snatched the beach cam. Minardi knows that because you get the time monitored on a beach cam, and that's when the beach cam went flooie. The perp, it turned out, didn't take the time to disconnect or unscrew the beach cam. He just cut the post down with a chainsaw. You could tell by the remaining stump of the post in the ground the next day. The perp just came by and zzzzzip it was gone. "$8,000, just like that," Minardi said. At the present time, the post is still a stump, and the perp remains at large. Minardi has gotten permission to replace it, but, according to his website, he is soliciting funds from users to finance the project and won't put it up until (continued on page 34) OLD NEWS: TOWN SUPERVISOR TAKES ON THE TRUSTEES By Dan Rattiner Sometimes when I read in the local papers about something that happened it makes me think -- hey this happened before, it didn't work, so why are they doing this again? Two years ago, the Village of Southampton confronted the Southampton Town Trustees about the fees charged for beach driving stickers. The Village said they wanted to charge their own fees. The Trustees said this was a duplication and the Trustees were willing to share the money for the fees. But they wouldn't support a separate fee. There was a whole lot of posturing and yelling and politicking in Southampton for about a month when that happened, until finally the Trustees said enough is enough and that if the Village wanted to charge a second fee, they, the Trustees, would just close off the Trustee access roads to the beaches. The Village backed down. There is no second sticker to be bought for Southampton Village today. Now they are doing a variation of this dance at East Hampton Town Hall. The East Hampton Town Trustees, just like their counterparts in Southampton, have been entrusted to administer the bay bottoms, wetlands and beach access roads on behalf of the citizens of that town. This is as a result of an edict issued by the King of England in 1680 known as the Dongen Patent. It has been upheld in court time and time again. The Trustees, an august group of elected officials who are completely independent of the Town, on behalf of the townspeople, administer the publicly owned access roads to the beach. The Town and Village governments, which were created for the Towns and Villages at a later date, have a whole lot more to do, including police and ticket violators, administering the beaches and taking care of zoning and other matters. It does not include overlapping the responsibilities previously given to the Trustees. Two years ago, a couple of guys who were driving out onto the beach without a beach sticker from the Town, were ticketed and (continued on page 35) DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 24 www.danshamptons.com By Dan Rattiner February 16-23, 2008 Riders: 4,211 Rider miles: 33,656 Delays: Several porcelain tiles at the Hampton Bays station fell from the ceiling onto the tracks last Thursday, delaying the subways for ten minutes. The tiles, all very expensive and imported from the Portuguese island of Madeira, are among the new and luxurious appointments at the far eastern ends of all the stations where the new luxury cars for the "De Luxe" service being announced this week are being installed. Slowdown: The time between departure at Hampton Bays and arrival at Southampton is being lengthened by four minutes because the trains now have to slow down as they pass the 150-pound raccoon who sleeps in the air duct halfway between these two stations. She is pregnant. DIGNITARIES TRY DE LUXE SERVICE In anticipation of the grand opening of the new station-wide "De Luxe" service on the Hampton Subway next week, reporters and news anchors, along with celebrities and government officials, enjoyed a "test run" on Saturday beginning at the Southampton station. The service is being offered in the lead railroad car of every train on the schedule. Passengers paying the extra fare get to enjoy "De Luxe" service, which includes overhead chandeliers, mahogany paneling, soft chairs, free TV on the back of each chair in front of you, royal red rugs from Turkey, free champagne, caviar and water biscuits available from our white-coated staff. They also enjoyed massages and mudpacks and a short performance by belly dancer Carla Knutz of East Quogue who learned her trade in Istanbul.

Literally. The most recent version of the proposal states that the habitable space of a house can be 12 percent of the property size, plus an additional 1,500 square feet. That nets out to a 3,400-square-foot house on a half acre -- reasonable by any standards. Yet a member of an organization called the East Hampton Citizens for Fairness in Zoning complained that 3,400 square feet was not large enough for a single family residence. That thinking is the stuff of nightmares. Specifically, it's a recurring nightmare that I often had living in the city, but never out here -- until now. It goes something like this: You're sidling through your tiny, cluttered studio apartment, inching your way past the ceiling to floor bookcases, around the upright piano your partner just had to bring along, carefully stepping over the enormous, immobile tomcats and heavy laden coffee table. You open a closet door to discover the incredible: On the other side, to your delight and amazement, is a room, beautifully furnished with a king size bed that barely makes a visual impact in the enormous space. The windows open out onto a balcony with an unrestricted view of the Hudson. Then of course, you wake up. It was just a dream -- the recurring nightmare of found space. As a Manhattan-ite for 20 years, I had this dream regardless of my "living situation" (a New Yorker's term of endearment for "home"). Whether I was asleep in the tiny (continued on the next page) THREE BIAS GROUPS CALL ON EDITOR TO RESIGN By Katy Gurley Independent editor Rick Murphy's ears must have been burning Friday night. "The so-called satiric articles he has written recently are racist, sexist and homophobic -- they are disgusting and despicable," said Lucius Ware, president of the Eastern Long Island Branch of the NAACP, at a community gathering of about 50 people at Hayground School in Bridgehampton. Meeting organizers said Murphy was unable to attend the gathering Friday because his wife had just had surgery. But in a phone interview the following Monday, Murphy said that he wasn't invited to the meeting and that his reporters were barred from covering it. (The organizers asked members of the press not to take notes during the meeting, but said they were free to interview people afterward. The reporting in this article was based on those interviews.) The articles under fire include two "Low Tidings" columns written by Murphy. The articles, disparaging "parodies" ostensibly written by Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Barack Obama, appeared last month in the Independent along with a cartoon by Murphy's wife, Karen Fredericks. The cartoon, depicting Oprah Winfrey, has also been called racist and sexist by the critics. Ware and many other community leaders and residents at the meeting demanded that Murphy resign or that his boss, co-publisher of the Independent, Jerry Della Femina, fire him. "I can't fire him. But if he does it again, he's out," Della Femina told the gathering, a response that elicited cat calls from the audience and (continued on page 35) DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 26 www.danshamptons.com Billy (continued from page 21) make the playoffs after leading the league almost the entire season. But then, last month, at vast expense, they bought one of the very best pitchers in the game today, Johan Santana. The hope is that they will not only make the playoffs this summer, but they will win the playoffs and go on to the World Series at the end of October and win that. So Billy can only pencil in the date of the concert. It could be anytime between October 5 and November 5. Who knows? Well, he'll be ready. Already he's sitting by the phone. * * * As we go to press, we have learned that a date has been settled upon -- July 16 -- which is the day after the All-Star Game and the beginning of a Mets road trip. It's possible that the concert will run two days or three or even four. They'll see how it sells. � Space (continued from previous page) room I first rented in a lease-holder's apartment, in the quieter bedroom of my own Upper West Side two-bedroom, or in the room that looked out to the Empire State building in my partner's spacious 1-bedroom in a tony West Village condo -- I had the dream. Sometimes it was the discovery of an extra room, other times an entire wing or even an additional floor. There was excitement, joy, a sense of relief and ability to breathe. Then, upon waking, that turned to abject despair. I rarely shared this dream with others, out of house shame or fear of closer scrutiny. When I finally did, I learned I wasn't alone. Friends, neighbors and coworkers were also plagued by this tormenting fantasy. Apparently the physical and psychic need for more space is so powerful in the city that it had found its way into the collective unconscious. Like so many other neuroses shared by driven, A-personality overachievers drawn to Manhattan, here was another, manifesting itself in our subconscious during the wee hours. Since humans were not intended to be in confined spaces -- it is used as a punishment, after all -- the stimulus for the dream is understandable in a town that besieges its inhabitants with a cluttered barrage of images, messages and density of every kind. A place where a need for space is literally, a dream. So imagine my surprise when I had the found space dream recently, right here in the Hamptons -- with its vast beaches, farm fields, and tracts of woods -- as I lay in my spacious bedroom of my house in the Northwest Woods that I share only with my partner and son. We have four bedrooms upstairs, the luxury of a dedicated playroom downstairs. By most standards, plenty of space. But there was the dream: On the other side of a linen closet (large enough to constitute a room by city standards) was another bedroom and bath. Waking up, I couldn't believe I'd had the found space dream again. Why did I no longer feel that I had enough? The answer quickly became clear. I had been reading too much about that size limit proposal set forth by town Supervisor Bill McGintee and his advisory committee. Ostensibly, the original goal was to block the construction of McMansions in the dunes of Amagansett -- more castles made of sand. The proposal has gone through a few iterations, but still comes down to a 3,400-square-foot house on a half acre. In the rest of the country, beyond the nonreality of the East End, the size of the average single family home is about 2,400 square feet -- closer to the size of our house, with which I am quite satisfied. But that insatiable dissenter of the proposal had planted the seed of discontent. I blame him for my nightmare. Isn't 2,400 square feet big enough? Won't people ever be satisfied with what they have, ever stop wanting bigger and more? Yeah, sure they will.

That camera, which costs $65,000, would be mounted on a police car, and, according to East Hampton Village Police Chief Gerard Larsen, significantly help with monitoring parking during summer months. In beach season, East Hampton Village hires the additional traffic control officers to monitor parked vehicles. Currently, parking is monitored two ways. In the Village's Schenck and Reutershan parking lots, the police department relies on tickets with a time and date dispensed from machines. With the tickets displayed on the dashboard, traffic control officers can keep an eye on how long the car is parked in the lot. The other monitoring strategy involves a large stick of chalk. One of the vehicle's tires and the pavement below are marked with chalk, so that the two chalk marks align. If a vehicle's chalk lines appear to remain aligned beyond the time limit for a particular parking spot (one to two hours in the Village), the windshield gets slapped with a ticket. "The chalk system has many flaws," said an employee at a real estate agency on Main Street in East Hampton. "I would leave my parking spot to go to lunch, come back and park in the same spot, and then get a ticket even though I was never parked in the spot for more than two hours at a time. One summer I paid almost $575 in parking tickets." Another employee described methods to beat the system. "I know some people who wipe the chalk marks off with water," he said. "Or they pull out of the parking space and change the alignment so the chalk marks don't match up." Another East Hampton resident described an incident when a traffic control officer never marked her tire with chalk, but ticketed her (continued on page 30) COUNTY WILL LEASE PECONIC BAY FOR SHELLFISHING By Debbie Tuma In an effort to restore shellfish, provide jobs and clean up the bays, Suffolk County is looking at leasing 300 acres in the Peconic Estuary System -- which runs in the bay from the Peconic River to Block Island Sound -- to private baymen over the next five years. Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman, who was recently appointed to the Suffolk Aquaculture Board, said this initial effort would give five-acre leases to 12 licensed individuals, so they could plant oysters in 60 acres a year for the next five years, totaling 300 acres. "It's hard enough to survive today as a bayman, and this program would help provide a steady stream of income for them, as well as restore the many shellfish that were wiped out by the mysterious brown tide of the mid1980s," said Schneiderman. He said this "miniscule effort" is part of a larger effort by Suffolk County to restore shellfish in up to 100,000 acres of state-owned bottomlands in Peconic and Gardiner's Bays. The County started developing an Aquaculture Leasing Program in 2005 after it was enacted in 2004. Schneiderman said the proposed 300 acres he hopes to lease out are located between Southold and Riverhead, all the way to Napeague Harbor in East Hampton. He said the State gave the County authority to lease the bottomlands for aquaculture purposes. Bill Pell, a longtime bayman and owner of Southampton Oyster Company, said oysters also clean out and filter the waters of the bays. "An average oyster filters 18 gallons of water in 24 hours," said Pell, who is currently growing and harvesting his own oysters in Southampton Town. "I think this County leasing program is worthwhile, because it opens up work for other baymen, boat builders and all (continued on the next page) DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 28 www.danshamptons.com Lease (continued from previous page) kinds of jobs in the marine business." He said that for years, oysters were overfished and not replenished, so this is a good idea. He also said that oysters are easy to sell and "the return is tremendous." Pell, who claims the Peconic Bay oysters are the "best tasting on the East Coast," said they take about 18 months to two years to grow once seeded. John Aldred, Director of the East Hampton Town Shellfish Hatchery in Montauk, said he thinks the 300 acres is a "reasonable way to start this leasing program, to see how it works, and then at the end of five years, it can be reviewed and modified." Suffolk County Executive Director Steve Levy said, "The crux of this program is to eventually allow for 100,000 acres of our County's bottomlands to be available for the cultivation of shellfish. This innovative leasing program to INVEST IN REAL ESTATE. PUT A CASABLANCA IN EVERY ROOM. the private sector baymen will encourage them to have both work and to restore our shellfish population." He also said several years ago he helped to reseed one to two million scallops in Peconic Bay and a million clams in Great South Bay. At that time, he wanted to make this program a model for the nation, so this new leasing program is a continuation of this idea of replenishing the bays. He said the Suffolk County Planning Department, which oversees this program, is now going through an environmental review process to work out the lease arrangements and should be underway by 2010 or sooner. The state owns the underwater lands and gave the County authority to lease the bottomlands for this aquaculture project. The State Department of Environmental Conservation and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are also involved in the permit process. The Suffolk Planning Department is taking the lead and has created the Aquaculture Lease Program Advisory Commission to oversee this process. At the end of the five-year lease of the 300 acres, the County will review this project and it could then be modified or changed. Carrie Gallagher, Suffolk County Commissioner of Environment and Energy, said, "Our goal is also to help protect this historic way of life on Long Island, when shell fishing was a prosperous way of life and very plentiful here. It was hurt during the past two decades, but we hope to bring it back." POSPISIL REAL ESTATE REALTOR � R There's never been a better time to invest in a lifetime of comfort.

That's a big audacious goal, but one I'm sure we can achieve," said Terrie Sultan, recently appointed director of the Parrish Art Museum. That global outreach will include a traveling exhibition program, which the Parrish has never instituted on a large scale, she said. "I want to get the museum's word out to a broader audience so we can share our scholarship with other institutions across the country. This is very easily doable for the Parrish," said Sultan last week in an interview from her home in Houston. She formally steps into the job April 1. After an exhaustive search for a director by the museum's Board of Trustees, Sultan was appointed as the new director in January. After a recruiter contacted her about the job possibility, she said she was "happy to throw her hat in the ring." (She succeeds Trudy C. Kramer, who announced her retirement a year ago after 26 years as director.) Sultan received a Bachelor in Fine Arts degree at Syracuse University and a Masters in Museum Studies at John F. Kennedy University and attended the Museum Leadership Institute of the Getty Center. She has served in senior positions at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and most recently at the Blaffer Gallery at the University of Houston. As director of the Blaffer Gallery since 2000, Ms. Sultan reorganized the artistic direction of the exhibition, publication and education program, organizing exhibitions (many of them traveling to other institutions) such as "Chuck Close Prints: Process and Collaboration," co-founded a new university-wide interdisciplinary center for the arts with a $20 million endowment fund, undertook a citywide outreach program that dramatically increased attendance and corporate foundation and individual support, and implemented a new fiveyear, $20 million strategic plan for expansion and renovation. No stranger to the Hamptons, Sultan has spent vacations here for the past 15 to 20 years, visiting her brother Donald Sultan of Sag Harbor. Over the years, she said she has Photo by Max Hirshfeld Terrie Sultan Museum Director built up a network of friends here, so the big move from Houston will be like coming to a second home. As a museum professional, she is attracted to the area because of the density of artists with ties to the community. "I don't mean just the visual artist. There's a As a professional, Sultan is vastly curious about the creative process and believes the new museum's design will reflect that. whole community of writers, theater people and artists who cover all aspects of creativity. I'm hoping to tap into those artists as part of my job," she said, adding that she finds the area unique. "There are not too many communities that have this density of people in the arts in an open and relaxed atmosphere." Part of Sultan's job will be to oversee the construction of a new Parrish Art Museum, which will be located in Water Mill. The Herzog & de Meuron design includes a network of lightinfused galleries on 14 acres, evoking the kind of artists' colonies that once flourished on the East End. The Parrish Art Museum's design concept for its new facility, created by internationally celebrated architects Herzog & de Meuron, will be comprised of a 64,000-square-foot facility, part of a 79,000-square-foot master plan that will be completed in phases, and vastly improve the museum's resources for exhibitions and public programming. Phase I will include 15,405 square feet of gallery space. At the end of phase II, the gallery space will increase to a total of 18,933 square feet on the site. In addition to managing the $70 million building project, Sultan will also oversee the curatorial programs, educational programs and the day-to-day activities of the museum. "I've been a museum professional for 20 years, have a strong curatorial background, and I believe I have demonstrated management skills. I'm a good planner and I love a challenge," said Sultan. She is currently working with the Parrish's Board of Trustees on a transition plan. "I'm in the process of formulating my 100-day plan. I'm reading many documents to bring me up to speed, and I'm studying the museum's existing strategic plan," she said. As a professional, Sultan is vastly curious about the creative process and believes the new museum's design will reflect that. "In the contemporary world, a lot of attention and conversation seems to be about the physical object of art, especially as it relates to commerce. I'm dedicated to the art object, too -- the painting, the sculpture, the photograph -- and believe these works can be transformative. But the other thing I'm interested in is the artists' process. You have an artist who walks into their studio and creates something out of nothing. I'm interested the things that cause the artist to make certain decisions during the creative process," Sultan said. Her husband, Christopher French, an artist and writer, shares her excitement about the creative process, and writes articles about art in publications such as Art News and Flash (continued on the next page) DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 30 www.danshamptons.com Electronics 2 (continued from page 27) anyway, claiming that he "remembered the car was there." Many tickets are dismissed because of incidents like this (several thousand last summer), but with the proposed camera, the court would have a photograph and GPS log indicating how long a car is parked in a particular space, so there would be little discrepancy. Although the Town of East Hampton has not yet expressed if it believes the camera would be beneficial, Chief Larsen suggested that it could also photograph license plates at East Hampton beaches and assist the Town with confiscating fake beach permits by recording the license plates of those who purchased permits. Chief Larsen proposed purchasing the cam- era at an East Hampton Village Board of Trustees meeting last month and the Board agreed to send him, along with two other Village officials, to Jacksonville, Florida, where the police department currently uses the camera, to see its capabilities. At the meeting, Chief Larsen also explained that his department spends an unnecessary amount of time and money training and monitoring the seasonal workers, all of which would be eliminated with the purchase of the camera. If the camera were purchased, the Village would be continuing its adoption of new technology, as two high-tech cameras, which are currently being used to monitor passing motorists and have already led to many arrests, were purchased just last month. Sultan (continued from previous page) Art. He also shows his visual work at a number of Houston venues. "My work conflates the sensibility of touch with the immediacy of sight, creating the interplays between gesture and order, individuality and anonymity that I think are at the heart of contemporary identity," he wrote on his website. "Both my husband and I are looking forward to being contributing members of this vibrant community," Sultan said. Sultan and French have been married for 20 years. They met when both were working at the Oakland Museum in California. One of Sultan's duties there was to edit a magazine for the museum and, admiring French's writing in art publications, hired him to write an article for the magazine. "And the rest is history," she said. Alvin Chereskin, chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Parrish, welcomed Sultan to her new home and said he is delighted to have her on board. "We are extraordinarily fortunate to have secured Terrie Sultan's leadership at a moment of unprecedented growth and opportunity for this Museum," said Chereskin.. "She brings to the Parrish a rare combination of curatorial acumen, managerial expertise and dedication to education and community service. We look forward eagerly to working with Terrie in the coming years." And Sultan echoes that enthusiasm. "It is an honor to have been selected as the new director of The Parrish Art Museum," she said. "The Parrish is unique among American museums, with a distinctive collection and a strong program that is closely allied with Long Island's East End and the artists who have worked there. With the support and collaboration of the staff and trustees, I look forward to building on the museum's remarkable history to move the Parrish into the future." DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 31 www.danshamptons.com Twentysomething...By David Lion Rattiner Our Chief While swimming in the ocean, there is rarely a moment when I don't think about a great white shark. For me, quite possibly the most psychologically intense movie of all time is Jaws. After seeing it over and over again, convincing myself equally as many times that the shark in the movie is an animatronics robot and is not real, I still find myself swimming to shore, confident that I had just dodged a gruesome death. Then I'll head back in, because I'll remember that Roy Scheider, who passed away on Sunday, took care of that shark a long time ago with a scuba tank explosion. We all love that movie and absolutely love the people that were involved in making it because every second is pure imagination and expression of art. Each character is as colorful as the next and it is easy to relate them to people you know, such as the hard nosed fishermen in Montauk, or a caring Hamptons policeman with a family and local friends. Police Chief Martin Brody, the main character in Jaws, is one of the greatest heroes to have ever been written for cinema. His fear of the ocean, as a man in charge of a town with an economy that runs because of the ocean, captures the spirit of facing your fear, through think and thin, and doing the right thing. Every single one of us has a mental imprint of the three seconds when Police Chief Martin Brody is chumming the water to attract the great white shark and, in a flash, a gaping shark the size of a bus comes out of the water. There is a flash of memory when Police Chief Martin Brody has a face of shock and terror as he jumps up in front of the camera and then says one of best lines of all time in movie history -- "You're gonna need a bigger boat." Roy Scheider, who played the hero and is also one of the greatest actors of all time, played the role of Chief Brody so seamlessly that when you would see the actor having his coffee at Candy Kitchen in Bridgehampton, you almost wanted to ask him how his beat was going. He was that believable in Jaws and was the true American hero that we all need in our lives, and he lived and hung out right down the street. You might have caught him playing softball at the Artists vs. Writers softball game in East Hampton, where on more then one occasion he would lob a grapefruit to a batter. As the batter swung and connected, the grapefruit would surprise us all as it is smashed to pieces. With a tip of the cap, the crowd would cheer at the top of their lungs as Roy would smile and wave. His place in the community was a place of utmost respect and love. And as I swim in the ocean this summer, maybe at Atlantic Beach, Main Beach, Coopers Beach, Ditch Plains or Indian Wells, just like I have since I was a kid, and I think about a great white sneaking up on me, I'll keep in mind that Police Chief Martin Brody has things under control. I'll keep in mind that Police Chief Martin Brody took care of all of those sharks a long time ago, and there is nothing to worry about. This is exactly what my Dad would tell me when I was ten, and in the middle of the night I had a nightmare about a great white shark swimming under my bed. So while I'm out there in the ocean, I'll be sure to thank our Police Chief. Thank you Roy Scheider, who, lucky for us, lived here in the Hamptons for so many years, was our police chief and always looked out for the great white shark off of our coastline. Thanks for being a hero for all of us and taking care of those great white sharks that are swimming underneath our beds and off our coasts. I'm sure without any doubt that he still is.

He was a wonderful man with a great sense of humor and a love of acting, and he leaves behind many memories, some from others noted in the quotes at the end of this article. Mine comes in the form of an interview I had with him and his wife some years ago at the Candy Kitchen in Bridgehampton. * * * Roy Scheider bought a house in the Hamptons on the recommendation of his wife Brenda. "It was in 1988," Scheider said. "We had just gotten married and she said I know this beautiful place you should lease a house for the summer. And she went and leased a house in Sagaponack. Then she brought me out to see it. And I fell in love with this area." "I'd been coming out to the Hamptons since the early 1970s," Brenda said. "I had shares in summer houses in Amagansett back then." "Where are you from originally?" I asked. "Buffalo." We are sitting, Brenda and Roy Scheider and I, at a table in the Bridgehampton Candy Kitchen. It is nine o' clock on a Saturday morning. "The birth of our son changed things a great deal for me," Roy said. "Our plan had been to settle in Manhattan and we were in the process of decorating an apartment. But the more we came out here the more we thought, why do we have to be in Manhattan? So we sold our very expensive apartment at a loss. And have been full-time residents here ever since." Roy Scheider is perhaps best known in these parts as the star of the movie Jaws, a film fashioned after a book set in the Hamptons. But he also has had two Oscar nominations, one for The French Connection and the other for All That Jazz. Scheider was born and raised in Maplewood, New Jersey, the son of a German immigrant who owned a gas station. He had a difficult childhood. A fat kid, he was the last chosen for anything and, in order to avoid being picked on, either had to run fast or be funny. "I couldn't run fast," he said. "But I could do impressions of practically every actor in Hollywood by the time I was ten." His home life as a young boy was not a happy one. In particular, he felt that his father was extremely critical of him. And so it was that when he went to Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, he was in absolute heaven. A professor, Daryl Larson, who ran the theatre department there, encouraged him to act, told him he was talented and that if he worked at it he could by very good. "Franklin and Marshall was a college for men back then. So we did plays that were easily done without a lot of women actors -- Coriolanus, Mr. Roberts, Darkness at Noon, Billy Budd. What few women we needed came from town. Townies. With this encouragement, I absolutely fell in love with theatre and for three years running won the actors award, the MVP that was given out at Franklin and Marshall. When I graduated college I knew exactly what I would be. I told my father, `I'm an actor.' He said, `You're a damn fool.' And that was that." "You people wouldn't hire Marlon Brando because he is too short," he yelled, and walked out. * * * The British accent, it turned out, belonged to the director of the play. But the casting director Bob Weiner, who overheard this conversation, absorbed it all. And, unknown to Scheider, three months later when casting began for The French Connection, Weiner was given that casting job too. They were looking for a tough guy. "I think I know who should have this part," Weiner told the producers. "I saw this actor. I don't know if you can handle him, but he'd be perfect." The French Connection, which was, in Scheider's words, "the first two guys in a car city western," won nine Oscar nominations, including Scheider's for the best supporting actor. Gene Hackman won for Best Actor. Without a doubt, the most financially successful picture of Scheider's career was Jaws, which cost about $12 million to make in 1974 and brought in $400 million in its first six months. "Steven Spielberg was at a Hollywood party with Tracy Keenan Wynn and I walked in on this conversation as the two of them were talking about this giant shark that comes out of the water and cracks a boat in half. I thought they were crazy. But a few days later, Spielberg called and asked me to take this part where I'd be essentially the same character I was in The French Connection, but in this resort where nobody would believe me. It was intriguing. We spent three seasons -- spring, summer and fall -- filming this movie on Martha's Vineyard. I loved Martha's Vineyard. I loved the ocean, the weather, the food, the island. It was like the Jersey shore, which I was very familiar with, but much better. Not a whole lot to do." "It took so long to film because the techies couldn't get the model shark to bear up under ocean conditions. Salt would get at it. It would malfunction. Waiting around, Richard Dreyfus, Robert Shaw and I would improvise these scenes on the boat. Many of these scenes made the movie. It really does touch everybody's fear of water. Even for people who live in the Bronx. Or Buffalo." Scheider starred in Blue Thunder, The Sorcerer, Marathon Man and All That Jazz, directed by Bob Fosse and written by Robert Alan Aurthur. All That Jazz was the most challenging film Scheider ever made. He plays the lead, a Broadway show director who is admired and loved. And as the film turns into a battle between life and death, it becomes a fantastic and disturbing blend of fantasy and reality. The film won the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1980. It also earned Scheider his second Oscar nomination, this time for Best Actor. His second marriage, after twenty years, was on the rocks. He and his wife had agreed to go their separate ways. And then came Brenda King from Buffalo. "We met in the Zimmer Drug Store on the corner of Madison and 76th Street." Scheider said. "She came up to me while I was looking at (continued on page 37) When Scheider graduated, however, the Korean War was on. He put three years in the Air Force and it was when he was stationed in Oregon that he married briefly. He married a second time in 1962, and with his second wife Cynthia, had a daughter who is now 29 and married and living in Alaska. For ten years, from 1960 to 1970, he worked the stock companies, touring from Boston to Washington, playing in Joe Papp's Shakespeare Festival in the Hecshter Theatre in Manhattan and in the Arena in Washington. And then, after a brief part in Klute starring Jane Fonda, he landed the co-starring role, along with Gene Hackman, in The French Connection. "It came about in a very strange way," he said. "Several months before they began casting for The French Connection, I had gone to an audition for a British play. The notice said they wanted an actor six feet tall. It was a drizzly day and there was a long line of actors and we had to stand outside the stage door. After about an hour, it was my turn and I went inside and the theatre was dark, except for a single work light on the stage. I could hear rustling sounds in the audience." * * * "Good afternoon, Mr. Scheider is it?" this British accent said. "Would you please read from page 18?" Scheider reads. "That's very good, Mr. Scheider," the accent said. "Now how tall are you?" "I'm five eleven, but I could be six feet in boots." "Would you read the scene on page 27?" He reads the scene on page 27. "That's very nice. How tall did you say you were?" "I'm five eleven, but I could be six feet in boots." Now please read the scene on page 77." He reads the scene on page 77. "And you said you were how tall?" "I said I was five feet ten but I could be six feet in boots." "Would you please stand back to back with the stage manager?" And that was it. Scheider threw the script out into the darkness. The pages floated down. DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 34 www.danshamptons.com Electronics (continued from page 23) he can afford it. He also says that this time, he's gotten permission from Della Femina to put the web cam on the chimney of the house. "And I'm putting up a second hidden web cam to watch the first one. They're not getting this one." Which leads this reporter to ponder, which web cam would a thief go after first if he strikes again? The beach web cam? Or the beach web cam watching web cam? Hmmm. And what about all those folks who skinnydip in the Della Femina pool? Will they continue? The second high-tech device in the news is a GPS system. They're pretty cheap now, and Suffolk County, which has a fleet of maybe two thousand vehicles, has had them installed in all of them. At any time, just by punching some numbers into a computer, anybody at County headquarters can see just exactly where each and every one of these vehicles is. The purpose of it is, I think, to keep an eye on some bureaucrats who might have thought they'd drive the county vehicle that has been entrusted to them for a little personal getaway down to Savannah, Georgia for a long weekend -- something that any county supervisor would frown upon if he knew. So now he would. Weren't they surprised last week when they got a call from the Riverhead police saying that one of their employees had gone to his house to pick up some work related thing he forgot, ran inside to get it, and when he ran back out, the van was gone? The County police got involved and pulled out all the stops. They had the GPS on it! The Riverhead police found the blip, headed after the perp in squad cars, and, directed by the County police overhead in helicopters who were watching the little location dot on the screen, closed in. The perp drove the car down Cross River Drive, then right onto Old Country Road, then past Sears Bellows Park to Sunrise Highway and thence east to North Sea Road in Southampton (where the Southampton Town Police took up the chase). He headed up the road as far as Conscience Point, then turned around and headed back down North Sea Road back to across Route 27 and then pulled into McDonalds. There he got out of the car, and, seeing the chopper overhead and the officers running toward him from every direction, surrendered. The alleged perp is Brian E. Davis, who may or may not have had a Big Mac in his hand raised high overhead. He was handcuffed, bundled up and carted away. The third high-tech item in the news is apparently a computerized license plate reader. Two of them are mounted on the roof of one squad car in the Village of East Hampton, and as the squad car tootles along, the readers snaffle in the plate numbers and spit out the numbers of those who either have stolen registration or no registration or expired registration. This information is beamed up to the helicopters who send out the signal and, in minutes, herds of policemen surround the suspected vehicle and, if a driver is inside about to turn the ignition, cry out in a chorus "come out with your hands up." I am not making this up, except for the last part. Make sure your car registration is up to date. When these items were installed a few weeks ago, a police officer commented, with considerable ingenuity I thought, "Obey the law and nothing bad will happen to you." You won't be talking your way out of this one. Gulp. � Dental Implants - The Most Beautiful Smile Regain the Confidence of Natural Teeth HAVE YOU LOST OR ARE YOU LOSING YOUR TEETH?

The decision was made by a Justice Ketcham who noted that the passage of this law was a "clear infringement upon the authority of the trustees." The 1995 law reads, "The Town Board shall not amend any section of this local law as the same applies to any trustee beach without having first received the written permission of the majority of the Trustees..." Now, Town Supervisor Bill McGintee is trying to go off without the Trustees' approval again. He appeared agitated with the Trustees at a Town meeting last week where he proposed that the beach fees for beach driving stickers for non-residents be raised from the current cost of $200. The Trustees, who were present, said they'd like to think about it. McGintee said he intended to go ahead anyway. He said, according to one Trustee who attended, that he'd do whatever he pleased. Here we go again. � Bias (continued from page 25) prompted some to accuse him of "whitewashing" a serious matter. Della Femina, however, did not defend Murphy's columns and has referred to them as a "disaster" and described himself as "ashamed" that they were printed. He also said he has Murphy on a "short leash" and is now personally reviewing all of his copy. On Monday, Murphy said, "I'm not resigning and I haven't been asked to resign." He called the furor over the columns "old news" and declined to elaborate. Town Supervisor Bill McGintee and actor Alec Baldwin also reiterated their calls for Murphy's resignation at the meeting, which was organized by the East End Gay Organization (EEGO), the East Hampton Anti-bias Task Force of East Hampton, the Southampton Anti-bias Task Force, the Riverhead Anti-bias Task Force and the Eastern Long Island Branch of the NAACP. The sponsors said the meeting was an effort to air grievances about the articles and to try and pull the community together in calling for Murphy's resignation. "I know when satire runs to racism," McGintee said, noting he was speaking as a citizen and not as supervisor. The controversy over the columns has created a firestorm of public rage, played out in the letters pages of local newspapers, in online forums on Forbes.com and the Huffington Post, on WABC-Channel 7, Newsday and USA Today, which have all covered the story. James Brady, a local resident, wrote in his column on Forbes.com, "The [column on Obama] was crude, not funny, racist and appalling." Newsday also criticized Murphy's "attempt to parody Obama." At the meeting, some called for a boycott of the Independent and even Mr. Della Femina's restaurant in East Hampton. But others, like Baldwin, said it would be unfair to punish Della Femina's employees. In public statements, Murphy has apologized for the columns, calling them "ill-conceived and offensive." He has said he intended them to be satires and admitted he made a mistake in publishing them. But in letters to the editors of two local newspapers last week, Murphy attacked McGintee and Baldwin, saying their criticism of the columns was spurred by past grievances. Della Femina, who had not read the columns until they were in print, told the gathering Friday night that he would reserve plenty of space in the paper for community anti-bias organizations and others to write positive stories about race and gender relations. At the meeting, members of Shinnecock Nation said the recent columns were part of a pattern of Murphy's racist writings, and cited an article that they claimed "ridiculed" the Nation in 2003. Nation members picketed the Independent when the article was published. "His hurtful commentaries trashed the Nation in a way that affected the wide community," Lance Gumbs, a Nation trustee said after the meeting. "And the sugar coating that Jerry did tonight is unacceptable. This is going to be an ongoing issue." Ken Allan of EEGO agreed. "We appreciate the fact that Jerry came tonight, but the situation is not healed. Jerry needs to reconsider his decision to keep Rick on as editor."

Please don't feel bad if that happened to you. All men in a long-term relationship make the mistake of buying the last minute fake rose with a crappy card once, but just once. If they make that mistake twice, we move them into the divorced, or soon to be divorced, man category. All of the flower and candy companies have a range of gifts for men to select from. I recall a male friend looking at an FTD-type newspaper insert that showed all the different flower and gift combos he could choose from. His eyes scanned back and forth in desperation. He finally slapped the table and said, "Well hell, I don't know what to pick." "How much gratitude do you want?" I asked. "This tiny rose plant in a coffee cup you're looking at will get you a hug and a kiss on the cheek." "You mean, there's a system?" the fool asked incredulously. "Yes," I said nonchalantly. "How would you know?" he asked, mistakenly thinking that a middle-aged woman who looks like a PTA mom has no past (let me tell all you guys right now, we all have a past). I gave him that well practiced icy stare that all women have. The one that shrinks them to the size of a bug. "Ask the crew of the Nimitz," I said very quietly. "Ouch! I'm convinced. Will you tell me how this works, please?" "Absolutely. There's a direct correlation between the amount of thought and money spent on a gift and the amount of appreciation we feel obligated to show you to insure that we'll get another great gift next year as well." "Okay. How much appreciation could I get for a dozen red roses?" "You could get a decent make out session." "Well, what if I, if I, ah, would like a little more appreciation?" "Depends on the vase. Sending the roses in a plain glass vase won't get you any extra points. But send them in the Murano glass vase, you could get a lot of appreciation for that," I answered. "Is there anything in this flyer that could get me anything ah, exotic appreciation?" "Sorry, there's no kinky sex bouquet. You have to add jewelry to roses and candy to get anything like that." "Did your husband know about this system?" "Yes, he did. I got a pair of emerald and diamond earrings totaling four carats one Valentine's Day." "Wow, what did you have to, I mean, I guess you had to show a lot of appreciation for that." "Oh yes, he was well appreciated that night. He didn't complain once the whole next week when he was in the Intensive Care Unit." So, for all you guys shopping for the Valentine's gift this week, get real flowers or real (sterling or 14kt) jewelry. Buy a nice card. I don't care if it costs you $5, you don't want to see your card with a steak knife through it, do you? And if you get a really spectacular gift, you too, could wind up in ICU. DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 37 www.danshamptons.com HAMPTON TRADITION XXIV -- SHIPPY'S By T.J. Clemente For years, a tradition in Southampton has been stepping into Shippy's Pumpernickels East Restaurant for a drink, a hot lunch or a memorable dinner. Through the years, many people both famous and local have visited this Southampton establishment to eat, drink and be merry. It's one of the great old time restaurants with a feel of nostalgia. Not to mention, Shippy's also serves great food, with world-class service, as it has for over 55 years. Nestled in a 1930s building that was once Southampton's A&P, Shippy's Pumpernickels East Restaurant has quite a history. In 1956, William "Shippy" Casgrain, a bartender at the famous Toots Shor Saloon in New York City, came to Southampton to purchase the Hill Restaurant. The nickname Shippy came from Mr. Casgrain's service in the Merchant Marines. In his heyday of ownership, Mr. Casgrain entertained many of his former Toots Shor crowd when they visited the East End. He was quite a character, quick with a joke and always able to put a smile on anyone's face. One longtime patron who knew him said, "He liked people and people liked him." Famous friends he knew from his days tending bar at Toots Shor came by regularly. Jackie Gleason and Art Carney, who played Ed Norton on "The Honeymooners," were pals of Shippy's, as was Jack Dempsey, the great heavyweight fighter. Gary Cooper was known to stop by in the summer, as was Henry Ford II and Austrian-born actress Hedy Lamar. In fact, the legendary Herb McCarthy would pop in for a drink and to visit with Shippy and talk shop. It was during this era that the famous sizzling hot steaks became a signature of Shippy's, and they still are today. Chef Mitch Kruzyna, whose moved to the back to expand mother Janis worked in the the seating capacity to 70. kitchen at Shippy's for 35 While Nick was holding his years, smiled fondly just at the year-old son Lucas, whom his mention of Mr. Casgrain.

"Never cynical, always impassioned and generous, a voracious and youthful learner and caring and dynamic mentor, Roy was a vital participant in both the founding and the everyday life of The Hayground School. Roy added joy to my life. He led by example -- coming to all the meetings, dropping the kids off at school, acting on civil rights issues and giving his time and expertise in a respectful and generous way. Roy was someone you could count on. Hayground is immeasurably richer for having him, Brenda and the children as such an integral part of our community. We miss him and treasure the gifts he gave us." -- Toni Ross, cofounder of The Hayground School Brenda and Roy "Hayground School was built on dreams, convictions and hard work -- the unrealistic belief that a small group of people can get together and create something meaningful for their children, families and communities, with no illusions about the difficulties implied. It seems that Roy's life and his most recent Renaissance Project in Florence, Italy, reflected those values." -- Kathy Engel and Jonathan Snow, cofounders of The Hayground School MEMORIAL OBSERVANCE & KADDISH RECITAL 1-631-287-2249 Chabad of Southampton Jewish Center a magazine and told me that All That Jazz was one of her favorite movies and that I was terrific in it."

The main operations center would determine the location of the German U-boats by triangulating the coordinates given to them by the observers at these outposts and, as a result, pinpoint these locations immediately and transmit them by secret code to the American warships at sea. The outpost at Atlantic Beach in Amagansett had been in full operation all day and all night for a full year by the time the Nazis waded ashore on June 13, 1942. The Nazis did not know this operation was there. And those manning their posts did not know the Nazis were there. Undoubtedly, had they met up and had the Nazis realized what they were looking at, they would have destroyed the American operation before moving inland. "The Nazi landing, dramatic as it was, was a small sideshow compared to the naval radio station," Hefner said. "Four Nazis were not going to alter the war. But the naval radio station did." Historians call what went on in the ocean between 1940 and 1943 the Battle of the Atlantic. By 1943, although the war was still underway, it was pretty much over. The Americans, much to the bafflement of the Nazi high command, were locating the Uboat fleets and wiping them out. Weapons, troops, tanks, planes, guns and ammunition were now flowing in a steady stream to England for what would, the next year, be the D-Day invasion of Normandy liberating France and leading to the Nazi surrender. What few U-boats remained stayed in their pens in Bremen and elsewhere along the German coast. But the four outposts continued on, and did not end their operations until the war ended in 1945. Today that brick building, moved up to Bluff Road adjacent to the East Hampton Marine Museum, serves as the offices for the East Hampton Town Trustees. The East Hampton Marine Museum is the former Single Men's Navy Barracks. As for the Nazi landing in World War II, the site of the landing was chosen by the German High Command from maps that showed the location of the Long Island Railroad and the Amagansett Railroad Station just a short walk up Atlantic Avenue. U-Boat 202, captained by Hans Heinz Linder, took 14 days to cross the Atlantic from Germany. Spirits were high. And because this was a single, lone U-boat on a secret operation, it crossed the Atlantic under complete radio silence, which is why they never came to the attention of the Navy radio station operators in Amagansett even though, in the end, they were right under their noses, and even though in the middle of that dark, foggy night both the Germans and the Americans were wide awake and conducting military operations just a few hundred yards from one another. I should also say that though this part of Bob Hefner's talk at the Clinton Academy Museum last Friday night did focus on this startling war-altering revelation, the talk was mostly about the history of the Life Saving Service and subsequently the United States Coast Guard, which, in 1942, ALSO had a building at Atlantic Avenue Beach and was, for an entirely different reason, also fully manned 24 hours a day. Quite by chance the operations of the Coast Guard that night resulted in the later unraveling of the Nazi spy operation. "For years and years before 1942," Hefner said, "sailors and passengers of ships at sea were shipwrecked during storms on the ocean beaches of eastern Long Island almost monthly. In the 1880s, a group called the United States Life Saving Service was formed. That service built wooden lifesaving stations every six miles along the beach. Here on the East End, they were at Ditch Plains, Hither Hills, Napeague, Amagansett, Georgica, Mecox and Southampton. The men lived in these buildings and the life saving boats were garaged there too." Hefner showed slides of these proud men and these structures. The men wore special uniforms while on duty, the same way that firemen wear special uniforms today. They had many occasions to save lives. They'd either drag their 28-foot boats out of the garages on wheeled carts down to the sea and launch them through the surf to the crippled ship, or they'd use an elaborate arrangement called a breeches buoy, where a gun would fire a rocket dragging a clothesline from shore to the distressed ship, that after being secured by the ship's crew, would result in the overhead crossing of a chair in which a lifesaving man would be able to sit and either accompany or carry back to shore a passenger or crewmember from a distressed ship. One at a time, all could be saved. He showed pictures of these operations. By 1942, the government had long since created the United States Coast Guard, which merged with these stations from the Life Saving Service in 1915. All day and all night, coastguardsmen would patrol the beaches, looking for shipwrecks or other problems. After Pearl Harbor, a new "problem" might be some Nazi soldiers. If you see such an operation, run back to the Coast Guard Station and report it to superiors, the men were told. And so it was that at 3 a.m., Ensign John Cullen, walking the beach, came upon the Nazis burying their supplies. He approached them -- they had already dressed up as fishermen -- and asked them what they were doing at that hour of the night. George Dasch, the leader of the German operation, was as surprised to see Cullen as Cullen was to see him. Dasch handed Cullen $350 in cash and told him not to tell anybody about them. Cullen ran off, and immediately ran into the Coast Guard Station just a hundred yards away -- that's how close he was on this six-mile walk he was taking -- and breathlessly told the Coast Guard officers what he saw and what they had given him. The Nazis got away to the train station and to New York. American soldiers arrived on the scene before dawn and dug up the boxes. And the radiomen, all within sight of this, just kept working away, hoping nobody would bother them. It was a busy 35 hours down at Atlantic Avenue Beach. By the way, the boxes the Nazis buried that the Army dug up were on the beach about two hundred yards to the east of where the comfort station at Atlantic Avenue Beach is today. Hefner noted it with a red PowerPoint dot on the screen. You might want to go down there to look around. Who knows what you will find. � DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 40 www.danshamptons.com GORDIN'S VIEW BARRY GORDIN Photo Page Editor: Maria Tennariello Layout Design: Joel Rodney "CAUSE CELEBRE" FOR ST.

DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 42 www.danshamptons.com Dan's North Fork THE BARREL... OVER with Lenn Thompson and evolves, you'll be invited out to the winery to take part in the necessary work -- both in the winery and in the vineyard. I missed the harvest and pruning sessions, but didn't want to miss the first tasting. That's why I'm here on this chilly morning -- it's time to taste the wines in barrel and also rack them -- the process of siphoning the wine from its sediment and putting it into another vessel. The wines we tasted, which will eventually be used to create each member's or group's custom blend, are all from the 2007 vintage. The small lot of cabernet franc stands out with great fruit and subtle spice components that were surprisingly evident in such a superyoung wine. Another favorite is a merlot fermented with a Barolo yeast strain and aged in new French oak. It showed great ripeness and some spicy, smoky and vanilla notes. I wasn't sure what to expect, but came away very impressed with the wines. In a few months, we'll be working on our blends and then we'll bottle the wines in the fall, before harvest begins the cycle all over again. The Sanninos are building a new barn that will serve as the winery starting with the 2008 vintage. They are accepting applications for 2008 memberships. Visit www.sanninovineyard.com for more information and details. Hopefully I'll see you at the 2008 harvest party. DIY Wine at Sannino Vineyard It's 9:30 a.m. on a frigid Saturday morning and here I am in a large, barely-heated garage-turned-winery just off of Alvah's Lane in Cutchogue. The thermometer has crept just above freezing. I can just barely feel my hands, but I'm getting my first taste of the wine that I'm making at Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard, sipping a barrel sample of 2007 cabernet franc. The three rows of cab franc vines that bore the wine in my glass are just at the end of the driveway behind me, off to the side are the merlot and cabernet vines. Sannino Bella Vita Vineyard, the East End's only home winemaker's center, is a welcome and exciting new addition to the local wine world. Most importantly, it's just plain fun. There are several places where you can taste and learn about wine on the North Fork -- from winery tasting rooms to my friends' education center, Grand Cru Classes, all just up the road in Mattituck -- but no one offers such a comprehensive, hands-on wine education as Lisa and Anthony Sannino. Membership at Sannino is $3,500 per year and includes everything you need to make a full barrel of red wine from the grapes growing right outside this garage. From that one barrel, you'll end up with 23 cases of wine ...... 275 bottles. That's a lot of wine, but you can get a group of friends together and buy a group membership -- which really adds to the fun. Your membership really starts in the fall, when you'll go out into the vineyard and harvest the grapes that you'll then crush, de-stem and inoculate with the yeast that will turn them into wine. Never made wine before? Don't worry, Anthony has been making wine at home for over a decade and he'll guide you every step of the way. Juan Eduardo Micieli-Martinez, winemaker at Martha Clara Vineyards, also serves as a winemaking consultant for your barrel.

Clemente It was a record-breaking day for Sherri Winter Clarry, a Senior Vice President of Corcoran Group and also for the North Fork Real Estate business. Sherri, who was working out of the Southold Office, was credited with the largest residential sale on the North Fork ever, with a price tag of $19.5 million. It was her listing and she was the agent of sale. Dolly Lenz, Vice Chairman of Douglas Elliman, said this about the sale, "As the East End continues to mature, the North Fork becomes the obvious choice for land barons and would be land barons alike. It is naturally beautiful and one of the last few unspoiled areas left in close proximity to a thriving world class community." The property known as Indian Neck Farms, encompassing 135 acres in Peconic, sold for $19.5 million. The property was listed on the deed as being owned by Phil and Pat Marco. Mr. Marco is a renowned photographer, and actually did filmography for such hit movies as Casino, The Color of Money, The Temptation of Christ and The Gangs of New York. The property runs along Deep Water Creek and has a 19 acre wine vineyard, which was planted in 1981. It has some of the oldest vines on Long Island, a modern design, 5000 square foot home that has four bedrooms and five full bathrooms, along with a gourmet kitchen and two wonderful fireplaces. An extension to the house includes a media room and a state of the art greenhouse. On the property also is a working organic farm. This farm produces quite a variety of crops. Also located on the 135 acres, not grouped together, are 14 structures. Among these buildings are two large barns, sheds, a workshop, and a guesthouse for two that comes with a garage and a 1930s style gas pump. The property also includes an in ground swimming pool with a sauna and a cabana, as well as a tennis court. As for wildlife on the grounds, the massive list includes deer (big surprise), fox, quail, a wide variety of songbirds, not to mention the astonishing Red Tail hawks, Ospreys, and the Great Blue Heron. The property does include a floating dock off a sheltered cove along the waterfront, which makes available the wonderful fishing opportunities that all who live on and love the North Fork enjoy. Corcoran's Managing Director of the North Fork and Shelter Island offices stated in a press release, "The North Fork is a unique community that seamlessly blends dramatic waterfront landscapes, sweeping farm views, diverse architecture and a strong commitment to environmental stewardship and open space preservation." It is for those reasons he believes the North Fork is an area for "strong investment." No information has yet been given about who purchased the property, but even with the sub prime situation going on around the country, champagne glasses are still being clicked on the closing of big deals on the East End of Long Island. Sherri Winter Clarry after closing this $19.5 million transaction was extremely humble in her statement, "There was so much thought, love and care that went into this breathtaking property, it spoke for itself. I am honored to have the opportunity."

Of course, while there they should taste the extraordinarily good food. Michael's At The Boardwalk is well laid out in a subtle blend of light and dark colors, with large framed mirrors and a selection of prints on the walls. There is also a great bar area. Everything is well spaced and the table settings add to the ambience. The overall effect is comfortable and welcoming, giving Executive Chef Michael Meehan a deservedly great reputation on Long Island. Over recent years he has worked at establishments such as the Mill River Inn, Tupelo Honey and the iconic SeaFood Barge in Michaels' at the Boardwalk 65 E. Main Street Riverhead 631-591-2710 Southold. Judging by the many times we have eaten here, it is obvious to us that his reputation will continue to grow in this new restaurant. He describes his concept at Michaels' as `An American Bistro,' and his menu includes a great blend of home style favorites and classic dishes. We enjoyed the home baked breads as we decided on our choices and started our meal with a bowl of the soup of the day, a velvety, deep tasting black bean soup with sour lime cream. This was a perfect start, great for a wet and miserable winter evening as it warmed us through and prepared our taste buds for the treats to follow. The grilled Polish Town Kielbasa served with a warm potato salad and herb mustard sauce was a revelation. Kielbasa was not one of my favorites - but it is now - at least if it measures up to Michael's standards. This Kielbasa, which does originate in Polish Town in Riverhead, was very tender with delicate tastes that matched perfectly with the accompaniments to make a great dish. Then came another surprise, again Buffalo wings in general leave me cold (however spicy hot they may be) but here Michael substitutes delectable, plump, sea-fresh tasting rock shrimp that came crispy coated and with a nice level of bite that could be soothed by the blue cheese dip to make another appetizer that was truly excellent. For our main courses we chose two of the entrees from the prix fixe menu, which at $21.95 for three courses is a great bargain. Vanilla brined loin of pork was perfectly cooked, the meat was very sweet and tasty, and showed just how good pork can be. The accompaniments of sweet potato puree, dried figs and a sage jus combined to make another wonderful winter dish. Similarly, the grilled, free range chicken breast was beautifully plated, (as was everything else), with fingerling potatoes and butternut squash. The smoked bacon added an extra touch without being over assertive. The combined tastes were incredible and I would judge it one of the very best chicken dishes I have ever eaten. Sylvia Luna is the pastry chef and we enjoyed sampling her key lime pie which had a delectable crust with a filling that was full of lemon flavor. The pecan squares also kept up the very high standards and we closed the meal with a cup of espresso that was really strong and fragrant. Apart from the dishes we enjoyed on this visit, the menu includes duck, chicken pot pie, Michaels' special meat loaf, house smoked baby back ribs, local flounder and rare spiced Montauk tuna. I often refer to `honest' food as being my food of choice, where only the best and freshest ingredients are used, and the cooking style is designed to bring out their flavors and textures to the fullest and not to over elaborate or swamp with sauces that take away the intrinsic nature of the food. Michael Meehan's cuisine to me epitomizes `honest' food. Everything we ate was a real pleasure and left you savoring every mouthful. Michaels' offers a very interesting selection of classic and special cocktails such as the Wine Country Chard-tini, an intriguing blend of Chardonnay, Roth vodka, peach schnapps and lemon-lime soda and they have a good range of beers. The wine list matches the food in terms of quality and value. We enjoyed the Peconic Bay 'La Barrique' and the Dynamite Zinfandel from California. Wines are from $7 a glass and from $19 a bottle - very sensible pricing. Apart from the super value three course prix fixe, another great offering is a three course complete lunch for $9.95 served on Wednesday through Friday, The prix fixe dinners are available Wednesday through Saturday and the restaurant is closed at this time of year on Mondays and Tuesdays. The main menu has appetizers from $7 to 12 and main courses from $11 to 32. They also have a special Valentine's Day prix fixe that offers a four course selection including a main course choice of filet mignon or rare seared Montauk tuna, paired with wine for $45 per person plus tax and gratuity. � Roy Bradbrook DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 45 www.danshamptons.com North Fork Events FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15 NORTH FORK BAND FEST- From 7-11 p.m. check out the second annual North Fork Band Fest for grades 912 at Southold Town Recreation Center; bands entertain their peers and compete for cash prizes.

This quote, attributed anonymously, helps to describe the rental situation for the 2008 summer season. The concept especially holds true if you are one of the many European glitterati leading the in-crowd, rental camp this summer. With the countdown official, there are less than 13 weekends until Memorial Day � the start of the summer season. And according to Hamptons real estate agents, this year's rental market is red-hot. But more than ever, it's the visitors from Europe and beyond, not just Manhattanites and those from the Tri-state area who are renting some of the plushest, oceanfront listings on the East End. No longer just a summer retreat for New Yorkers, the Hamptons has become an international destination. Rick Hoffman, Regional Senior Vice President, East End, of The Corcoran Group said the company is experiencing one of the "busiest, and earliest rental seasons anyone can remember." According to Hoffman, it used to be that people came out on President's Day weekend to view the inventory, and this may be attributable to relatively good weather this winter, but now they are viewing online in the comfort of their own homes, seeing something they like, and then coming out east to make the final decision." With more people coming out earlier than usual, it's no surprise that some of the listings are going as high as $1 million for a three-month rental in Sagaponack.

DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 48 www.danshamptons.com Riverhead: New Proposals, New Hurdles Riverhead, which in colonial times was the seat of power, is a community looking forward, with many ambitious projects before the Town officials. At one time so attractive that it enticed Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and James Madison to embark on the long stagecoach ride to visit and see the sights, Riverhead is hoping to recreate its vibrancy. Last week, the Riverhead Town Board passed a proposal from Vintage Square Properties LLC to move forward with its plan to build a combination parking garage, multiplex movie theatre and some commercial space on land located between the Railroad Station and the New Supreme Court complex. At issue is the financing of the $70 million dollar project. At the meeting, officials of Vintage convinced the board that their financing is real and competent, although not completely in place at the moment. Supervisor Philip Cardinale expressed that it was important to give Vintage an "opportu- The East End's Best Selection of Home Improvement Solutions Under One Roof, Ever!

In a phone interview, Cardinale said that he hopes the officers of Vintage Square Properties can meet the mandated June 15, 2008 date for signing. Edwin Tuccio, a Riverhead resident and businessman who owns 16 commercial properties in Riverhead, said that, while he believes Cardinale, "is doing an excellent job," he feels that financing will be a problem for all of the projects. Tuccio also applauded The Apollo Real Estate Advisors attempt to build a $40 million urban renewal project in Riverhead, although it too has its hurdles. He believes they will have an advantage moving forward in terms of projected cash flow. With the construction of the new Supreme Court Complex, the possibilities for downtown are endless. But nursing these projects into contract has kept Cardinale very busy, and a new issue has reared its head. It is possible that the land in Calverton where the indoor ski and water park project is proposed to be developed may be a nesting site for the endangered short eared owl. This has thrown a new red flag in front of that project, which could yield the town $155 million in revenue. The Supervisor finds the timing of the discovery of this problem suspicious. Now that the State Department of Conservation is involved, anything can happen, but delay is a guarantee. The DEC must prove the owl exists and is nesting in the area. However, Cardinale is glad to see so many oars in the water when it comes to urban development for Riverhead. Tuccio supports Cardinale's painstaking efforts to bring these projects to fruition, thus bringing jobs prosperity to parts of downtown Riverhead. Although many retail storefronts are presently vacant, many residents are enthusiastic about the new feel of downtown Riverhead. If all three projects are constructed, millions of dollars of consumer spending could flow to Riverhead. The indoor water park and ski resort proposal could yield the Town of Riverhead over $155 million in revenue that will be used to retire the Town's $60 million debt and reduce town taxes by perhaps 55%, according to Cardinale. He believes lower town taxes will invigorate the residential real estate market in the town as well. Only time will tell whether Riverhead, the gateway to the forks, will shine again. Tuccio, whose family has been in the real estate business in Riverhead, "for over 150 years," is rooting for that. "I love the people, I love the Town," he said. "I am optimistic. Its tough now, but I am optimistic." Cardinale echoed those sentiments, adding that it is an uphill but worthwhile battle. � T.J.

But this isn't your typical drag act � no wannabe Liza Minnelli or Marilyn Monroe with a 5 o'clock shadow. �This is Eddie Izzard. The first time I caught Izzard's act was late one night on HBO. I sat up until 4 a.m., my sides splitting as he ranted about killer giraffes, dogs on motorboats and traveling around Italy on a scooter. It was a bizarre, wonderful and witty performance. American audiences know Izzard best for his role as conman-turned-lawyer Wayne Malloy on FX's "The Riches," where he stars opposite fellow Brit Minnie Driver. You may also have caught his bit parts in Ocean's 12 and 13. Manhattan theatergoers might have been lucky enough to see his Drama Desk Award-winning performance in the Roundabout Theater Company's revival of Peter Nichols' A Day in the Death of Joe Egg in 2003, but what put Izzard on the map first was his one-man show. Eddie Izzard: Live at the Ambassadors in London's West End won him an Olivier Award and a British Comedy Award in 1993. A year later he was cast in David Mamet's The Cryptogram followed up by David Beaird's 900 Oneonta and Marlowe's Edward II. Then it was on to film, then comedy, then film, then theater, then film � well, you get the point. The guy has talent. While the concept of cross-dressing has thrown some audience members, for Eddie Izzard it's more than a gimmick. In fact, it was the crux of the monologue in his Emmy-Award-winning HBO special Eddie Izzard: Dress To Kill. Izzard's humor is far more varied than simply prattling on about his outfit. Something can be said about a man who has the ability to ramble on about the supermarket for over ten minutes and make it funny. Often, his routines seem like stream of consciousness of a dizzy mad man, but his accessibility and keen observations of the commonplace quickly entice the audience into his world, allowing Izzard to take them wherever he wants to go. His routine usually contains a few common elements. Not known as an impersonator, Izzard uses British actors James Mason (Boys from Brazil, Jesus of Nazareth) and Sean Connery as his voices for everyone. James Mason generally gets the honor of being the voice of God, while Connery seems to take on everyone else. Clearly very intelligent, Izzard's nods to religion and history are brilliant. A bit about Noah (with the voice of Connery) trying to convince God that speedboats would be better than the ark is hysterically funny. the same goes for his retelling of Hannibal's crossing of the Alps to reach Ancient Rome � "We're going to attack the Romans over the Alps...Well we're fresh out of skis for the moment...We've got some elephants though!" Izzard is known to perform segments entirely in French � without warning. Yet somehow those who don't speak the language don't get lost in the trans- lation. . Jam (yes, like the stuff you put on toast) is his go-to subject. Talking about preserved fruit doesn't sound like it could ever be funny, but his ability to throw it into the most ridiculous of circumstances or whenever he can't think of a word works incredibly well. Izzard is like no other comedian on the circuit. Intelligent, quirky and just plain funny. Catching this show would be a coup for anyone looking to laugh away the winter doldrums. While I strongly recommend checking out Izzard, there's another comedy show I'd like to mention. Although technically sold out, you can still get tickets on stubhub.com. Will Ferrell's Funny or Die Comedy Tour is one of the funniest shows on the block right now. As the title may imply, Will Ferrell (yes, the Will Ferrell) hosts an evening of stand-up with some of the smartest, outrageously funny folks in comedy today. The lineup includes Zach Galifianakis, Demetri Martin and Nick Swardson. If you can get your hands on some tickets, they may very well be worth the scalping price. � Christian McLean Eddie Izzard is performing from February 14- 23 at the Union Square Theater, tickets $40. Will Ferrell's Funny or Die is one night only on Sunday, February 24 at Radio City Music Hall. Tickets are few and far between. TAKE Paumanok Path Part II Pine Trail Preserve to Manorville Hills Here's a 7.8 mile hike for you to enjoy, beginning at the Pine Trail Preserve in Ridge and ending at Halsey Manor Road in Manorville. You'll need a hiking buddy to park his or her car at the end point unless you want to walk all the way back. Park in the ample dirt parking area by the kiosk and trails information bulletin board on Route 25; 0.6 mile east of William Floyd Parkway. You'll start out on a carpet of pine needles and oak leaves on a narrow trail corridor that had once been slated for the extension of Route 111 into Manorville. Now it's a 100 yard-wide trail. About six residential roads come to a dead end on this trail with houses visible on the north side. Several adventitious trails run into the backyards. As you approach the LIPA ROW, the trail becomes wide and muddy. Turn left onto the ROW; look for a turn blaze on the electric tower that leads you back into the woods. After a short distance, you will reach the Brookhaven Trail that branches to the north. I walked a short distance up this trail and noticed that the yellow blazes are nearly obliterated. Where the brush layer is beginning to close in on the trail there is evidence of recent trail maintenance but more is needed. Cut across a woods road that runs north. After about one mile, cross a solid bridge over a brook that feeds Sandy Pond. The trail turns right as you approach the ponds with Sandy Pond to your left and Grassy Pond to your right. Here the trail is badly chewed up by heavy vehicular and equestrian use. As the trail moves away from the ponds around the edge of a grassy field, water is visible through the bare tree branches to your right. A straight walk on a wide eques- A HIKE WITH KEN KINDLER bush blueberry, sweet pepper bush, and a large stand of cattails here. The trail is closing in. Cross a brook bridge (with unfortunate vandalism to one rail) built by Eagle Scout, Jeremy Manita. The trail travels alongside a ridge by the river. Cross Wading River Manor Road by the corner of River Road. A cement abutment takes you over the river that is now to your left. There are huge old pines above, and soft duff underfoot. You'll see mounds of dirt that are the remnants of old property boundary markers. Along with the white blazes of the Paumanok Path you'll begin to see red blazes as well. Look down from the ridge and note the railroad tracks to your left. The Paumanok Path blazes were repainted so that they are half red and half white, instead of all white as they should be. Presently, every other tree is blazed red and white or all white due to some illegal painting. You'll see a red and white turn blaze where the PP turns left across the RR tracks onto Mill Road. Mill Road takes you across the ROW and then turns left into the woods. Pass a large glacial erratic and more boundary mounds onto Mill Road where you could walk straight across (following yellow blazes) to the Trails Center. If you turn left onto Mill Road it will take you across the river and right back into the woods. After a while, you'll cross Mill Road again. This trail between Mill Road and Halsey Manor Road was built by George Fernandez to eliminate some road walking. It's only two years old but riddled with holes and ravines dug by dirt bike tires. When you come out onto Halsey Manor Road, turn left and walk across the 495 overpass � look for the large parking area on the left side of the road. To contact Ken Kindler please e-mail email@example.com trian trail leads you across Wading River Manor Road. Be careful here � the road is curved and cars are speeding. Hiker and equestrian signs are needed on this road. Huge pitch pines shade the brush layer along with some unusually mature chestnut trees. Arrive at a burn area and see the standing skeletons of fire-dead trees (not safe on windy days). Even the living trees show signs of fire with their charred trunks. Cross a horse trail not shown on the map available from Greenbelt Trails Conference (631-360-0753). The blazing is sparse because many of the dead trees that were blazed have fallen down. The trail tread is in excellent condition and clipped branches attest to volunteers working to keep the trail open. Looking to your right, you'll see what looks like a grassy area but actually, it's wetlands leading to the Peconic River. Blissfully, there is no ATV damage to this trail. You'll notice wetlands plants like bayberry, high DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 51 www.danshamptons.com Shop `til You Drop...

Called The Roots of Rap: Poetry, the show consists of a group of professional actors that travel all over the tri-state area presenting performances to educate children about the poetry of rap music and the history and culture behind it. Jacqui Leader, director of programming at CMEE, said, "The group comes highly recommended. For black history month I like to do something different, exciting and educational." Kori Schneider, executive director of the Interborough Repertory Theater said, "Roots of Rap gives the history of where rap came from. It's a great show for the kids � really interactive." The performance opens with a modern rap to actively engage the audience. "The show has been going for 15 to 20 years, so you can imagine how much it has changed with pop culture. We bring in a hip hop artist to keep up to a quick tempo, Roots of Rap encourages students to write and learn. The show is a sneaky English lesson, teaching students about point of view, meter and rhyme and dialect. Through teaching about the structure of poems, the poetry and raps recited also hold lessons of history and culture. The poetry used in the show includes All is Loud, a pigmy rhyme, Sangaree, a slave song, We Wear the Mask by Paul Lawrence Dunbar and Weary Blues by Langston Hughes. An African-American invention, rap is a new literary style that has emerged from the same musical heritage that created jazz. Rapping takes the poetic literary style and combines it with an African root. The Interborough Repertory Theater is an award winning, non-profit, company that produces a wide range of theater for diverse audiences. They will perform at 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. CMEE is located at 376 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike. � Lauren Isenberg date with the lingo," said Schneider.

DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 53 www.danshamptons.com Joan Osborne Up Close and Personal at the Talkhouse It's hard not to associate folkie soul singer Joan Osborne with anything but her 1995 hit single "One of Us." Yeah, you know "What if God was one of us/ Just a slob like one of us." Not only did it ask a few simple, yet poignant questions, it also lent itself to top 40 playlists for a lifetime, and became a theme song for Bible study groups across the country. Although the image of Midwestern housewives in draping frocks, holding hands and singing "One of Us" while praising the baby Jesus is far from what Osborne intended when she released Relish, it's hard to control a song once it's in the hands of the public. (Just ask Bruce Springsteen or Woody Guthrie, both of whom have had their most popular songs, "This Land is Your Land" and "Born in the USA," misconstrued by the politicking right for a few decades. Reagan even wanted to use Springsteen's anti-Vietnam anthem for his re-election campaign!) But hey, if your legacy is going to be misinterpreted, it's nice to be in the company of greats like Guthrie and the Boss. Fortunately for Ms. Osborne, 45, her post "One of Us" accomplishments outweigh the one-hit wonder status she has been afforded by those who clearly aren't paying attention. While the public has been busy lapping up regurgitated J.Lo singles, Osborne has been making a name for herself in the world of soul, most notably appearing with the Funk Brothers, the Motown session band that has played on "more number one hits than The Beatles, Elvis Pressley, The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys combined." Osborne's unique blend of folkie soul struck a chord with many on the mid90's Lilith Fair tour. She also appeared in the 2002 documentary Standing in the Shadows of Motown, a film about the legacy of The Funk Brothers, whose careers were being omitted from the credits on albums they were a part of (It wasn't until 1971 release of Marvin Gaye's What's Going On that the band received any credit on a record.) Osborne teamed with the Funk Brothers for the soundtrack, reviving Motown classics "(Love is Like a) Heat Wave" and "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted." The collaboration proved so successful that Joan and the Funk Brothers eventually embarked on a world tour, playing such high profile gigs as the annual Ottawa Blues Fest. And then there is that little matter of Osborne's time as a member of The Dead, you know, the Jerry Garcia-less version of The Grateful Dead, reincarnated in 2003. I had the pleasure of catching The Dead a few times that summer and I thank God Osborne was there to hit the high-notes. Bobby Weir just doesn't have it like he used to. While Osborne's tenure with The Dead lasted only for one tour, her vintage vibe must've left a lasting impression on long-time Dead bassist Phil Lesh, who has repeatedly featured Osborne in the touring version of his "Phil & Friends." On the last stop of their 2006 Summer Tour with Trey Anastasio of Phish fame, I caught Lesh and Osborne in Vermont, "Ruben & Cherise." Not one to lay low for long, Osborne recently made guest appearances with Patti Smith and her band at New York's Bowery Ballroom, where Smith was holed up for a three day New Years run. When she's not appearing with other famous vocalists, Osbourne can be found in the studio. Recently she contributed to the soon-to-be released reggae tribute to The Police Spirits in the Material World, which also features a who's who of reggae demi-gods like Gregory Issacs, Toots Hibbert, Lee Perry, Inner Circle and the Wailing Souls. Joan's take on The Police classic "Every Breath You Take" is sure to be a refreshing mix of sun and soul. Hopefully it'll get rid of that sour taste created P. Diddy after he sampled Sting's anthem in tribute to the late Notorious B.I.G. While hanging out with bad ass legends of rock is all fun and games, it doesn't stop Osborne from performing on her own. In fact, she will be coming to The Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett on Saturday March 1st for a super intimate performance that is sure to leave fans as happy as Giants fans after the unbelievable Super Bowl victory. While there couldn't be a better venue to see an artist up close and personal, the show will also serve as a warm-up of sorts to Osborne's March 7th performance at Carnegie Hall, where her years of hardworking and undying passion will finally pay off as she plays a venue most only dream of. � Michael P. McGregor where her soaring, yet delicate, vocals shined on Jerry Garcia classics "They Love Each Other" and, especially, the tragic Mardi Gras love affair of DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 54 www.danshamptons.com Entertainment In Town review: november...by gordin & christiano Playwright David Mamet tackles American politics in his new satire November about an incompetent President running for a second term. Nathan Lane turns in a brilliant comic portrayal as the despicable President Charles Smith (Chuck for short), whose unnamed political party has deserted him on the eve of the national election. Joe Mantello's swift paced production whips Mamet's slight spoof into a hysterical frenzy and the cast delivers support that keeps the evening amusing even as the farce falters. The action takes place over two days in the President's Oval Office, handsomely conceived by two-time Tony Award winner Scott Pask. The realistic set grounded the evening in truth and the ensemble plays the comic material to the hilt, with spot-on timing. The clever ideas from the Pulitzer Prize winning playwright of Glengarry Glen Ross are winning, and the jokes fly in rapidfire succession, but Mamet's themes are not fully examined. The result is that his outlandish premise plays more like an extended sketch lampooning the President's potential for abuse of power than a fully developed comedy. Mamet's obnoxious President Chuck is a morally corrupt, uniformed, vulgar idiot trying to sell pardons in a last minute attempt to benefit his financial position before leaving office. His trusted advisor (Dylan Baker) candidly tells him "Everybody hates you, and you're out of cash. Go home." But still the President refuses to relinquish power. His last ditch effort to win re-election is a scheme to extort two hundred million dollars from the turkey industry and use the cally funny and Lane keeps the evening in high gear with polished astounding precision. The play, which portends to be politically incorrect, keeps the actors in Joe Mantello's razor sharp production from taking full flight into a comic absurdity that could have been exhilarating. Instead, the evening is a testament to their tremendous efforts to keep the proceedings lively. The President's lesbian speechwriter Clarice Bernstein (Laurie Metcalf) just off a plane from China with a newly adopted baby refuses to write anymore speeches for him unless the president agrees to officiate her marriage to her lesbian partner on national television. The role is underwritten, losing an opportunity for some meaty confrontational exchanges and giving the actress little to play. Since Clarice is part of the central conflict, this is most unfortunate � the character becomes little more than a willing foil. The evening belongs to Nathan Lane and he navigates the territory under Joe Mantello's guidance with total assurance, balancing his manic outbursts with a hint of self awareness that makes his President Chuck a hysterical marvel.

With the current campaign picking up speed, the play couldn't be more timely � especially since an advertising budget seems to be key in winning the democratic nomination. The insinuation is that the American public can be bought and easily duped. The playwright, who is known for his cynical edge and his profanity laced portraits of macho men, appears to be turning soft in his old age. His absurd comedy is very funny, indeed, but without digging too deep beneath the surface. Although the F-word is used more than 100 times, the tone is decidedly playful. Mamet's farce provides Nathan Lane with a dazzling showcase for the actor's comic gifts. This is Lane's best role since The Producers, and the two-time Tony Award winning star delivers a convincing tour de force.

This event is always one of the biggest of the winter season and this year was no exception � over 300 people turned out for a good cause. Guests purchased Chinese auction and raffle tickets to win dozens of prizes that were donated by local businesses. Attendees also came to see the local male and female models who volunteered to parade in glamorous lingerie provided by Top Drawer of East Hampton. Hair and makeup were provided by Vincent DaSilva at Gil Ferrer Salon in Bridgehampton. DJ Chris from "Sounds Incredible" provided music for the event and Fashion Show chairs included Susan Barylski, Susan Barry Roden and Crystal Reiner . "We always have so much fun at this event, and both men and women love to come out and watch the models," said Susan Barry Roden, board member of the South Fork Breast Health Coalition. "We've been doing this for 12 years, and each year we get more people and have even more fun." The models this year included Dr. James Brady, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and member of the South Fork Breast Health Coalition Advisory Board, as well as Dr. Vito Alamia, of Hamptons Gynecology and Obstetrics, who delivers babies on the East End. One of the highlights of the evening was a parade and dance around by James Amaden, a local firefighter, in his hat and uniform. Dr. Edna Vades, who recently joined Southampton Hospital as Gilmartin and Carol Zuhusky. Roden explained that the money raised would go toward her organization's "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" group, which helps people with breast cancer to get house cleaning, transportation and other services that they need. The South Fork Breast Health Coalition also tries to identify the cause of breast cancer through studies and surveys, to educate women about the importance of early detection, and to enable breast cancer survivors to live as fully and completely as possible. At the event, Bob Chaloner, President and CEO of Southampton Hospital, introduced himself and commented on the importance of the event in raising consciousness about breast cancer and helping those living with the disease, which affects one out of eight women. The hospital, and also the coalition, recommends that women perform self-examinations regularly and get mammograms every year. Roden announced that another exciting event to take place on June 7 and 8, when her group organizes the "LI 2 Day Walk" for breast cancer, a 20-mile walk over two days. "We have named our team Heaven Can Wait, and we are looking for walkers to help us raise money," she said. "This is a huge event, and we will be walking and camping overnight along the way, with people rallying for us the whole way. We also need volunteers." Roden, who will be honored for her work on April 2 at Atlantica Restaurant in Westhampton Beach, urged anyone interested in this walk to check the website at li2day.org. � Debbie Tuma Photo by Debbie Tuma its first designated breast surgeon, modeled in the show, which lasted for several hours.

When you consider that the huge swirling, crashing mass of annihilation is basically a very nasty remake of the destruction triggered by 9/11 horrors, that's what we have here with Cloverfield. The bizarre part is that the men who make up the reptilian crews seem to be rejects from Pirates of the Caribbean cast calls. Moreover, the human, mechanical capabilities of the ingenious machinations turn me inside out by the novelty of its sexually outrageous, highly explicit body parts best left un-pictured. However, it does give a radically new aspect to the hand-held camera technique. It has to be given the absolute top award for the world's shakiest movie recorded! Don't even think of comparing any of the Bourne Incident's footage, which is a rock solid base in comparison. Cloverfield is purported to be the official government designation for the gigantic mess of metallic clunking, wrought to shake Manhattan from its foundation. Unfortunately it also wrecks elaborate party plans to celebrate a trip to Japan. The unearthed CGI-taped action is given in uneven dumps. It revels in its lack of focus � even on subject. When it becomes apparent we are covering the end of the world the natural reaction is so what, dude? When did you operate a video camera last? 1978? This might look dated. But The Blair Witch Project, came from nowhere with not much more than the title and a lot of anticipation, packaged with a preconditioned mindset. It was almost as if the audience had been hypnotized. Sitting through recorded images is as normal as sleeping through boring images and hardly knowing the difference. Stimulating experiences suffer the same terrible fates. Have we seen all this before? Or, are we the rerun? Cloverfield Cloverfield is a subversive piece of entertainment that convinces the "I do believe" in us that the world will come to an end, with more ambitious bits of "shtick" than a gallon size jar of polish sausage. The surprise arises one calm May night, "It," "she," "he" or whatever builds up scores of destructive "big bangs." They slam, sway and smash with great care to destroy the most identifiable landmarks. Joining them in the destruction are those tentacle, little monsters. Even the U.S. military arrives wet and surging. The clever "gimmick" entertainment relief is supplied by "nobody" New Yorkers described at the outset � these are the attractive, colorless people who call each other "dude" and don't have a sensible thing to say. The inability to deal is heartreching and thoroughly banal The manner of the demise of the local boys and girls is done with a lot of style owed to the smart Blair Witch Project idea of showing it in an amateur's viewfinder. Again, the wide screen disaster toll toted up through the rinkydinky camera's viewfinder. I'm not a fan boy of the rabid Godzilla rubbersuited monsters. Remember in 1954, those Japanese panic button horrors really triggered fear � it was, after all, in the wake of the Atomic Bomb and its worse fears. I won't belittle the 1950's latex suits, Cloverfield's $25 million monsters looks awfully good. Then, there are the boring little "dudes." Somehow, there are always enough of them to eliminate so readily. Guy-Jean de Fraumeni is the producer, writer, and director of award-winning European and American Feature films.

DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 57 www.danshamptons.com Mike Vilensky's MINI � MOVIE REVIEWS Definitely, Maybe A father, Ryan Reynolds, in the middle of a divorce, re-considers his past romantic options three intriguing women - while explaining the melodrama to his daughter, the adorable Abagail Breslin, as she tries to figure out who her mother is. A sort of High Fidelity without the music or profanity, and a hopeful (and cute) movie for those who have hoped their ex might re-consider! Step Up 2 The Streets Art students compete in the medium of dance with Maryland's most notorious underground dance troupe in this pseudo-sequel of sass and dirty (albeit Disney-approved) dancing. Fool's Gold A couple on the rocks hunts for buried treasure, only to find their lost romance in this action/romantic comedy. The movie reunites Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, making it sort of like How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days on an island, only not very funny. Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus Best of both worlds concert tour � couldn't snag the high-priced tickets to see this tween pop star live at the coliseum? No worries, because the GIRL'S ON FILM! In 3D. My best friend Leslie says, "oh, she's just being Miley." Or Hannah Montana! Either way, this rising Disney star is golden with dated moves and synthesized, fun tunes to belt out. Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins A popular talk show host leaves the Hollywood Hills to learn some family values in his hometown in the Deep South. With Martin Lawrence starring, this may be the most interesting of this week's crop, but that isn't saying much. The Hottie and the Nottie Paris Hilton stars in a heartfelt romcom about a man who is trying to rekindle the flame of his childhood love, but first must tame her unattractive best friend, who he may also begin falling in love with. With the word "nottie" in the title and a bevy of unfunny jokes in the trailer, you can insert your own joke here. Untraceable It's MySpace gone bad in this film in which Diane Lane plays an FBI agent racing to catch a killer who posts his crimes on the internet. Was Sandra Bullock busy? This thriller has definitely been made before, but is suspenseful nonetheless. Rambo Sylvester Stallone is back. In Thailand, John Rambo leads a motley crew of mercenaries up the Salween River to a Burmese village after getting word that a group of aid workers he assisted have gone missing. Obviously all in his path perish in this alpha male action flick. There Will Be Blood Get a head start on the Oscar season and a smartsounding recommendation by seeing this dark, brilliant portrayal of an oil-hungry businessman in turnof-the-century Texas by cult director Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights). There will be awards in a country very much for old men of late, cinematically speaking. First Sunday This week's post-Christmas crop needs no cynicism from me, as the films speak for themselves. This one, starring Ice Cube, is a comedy about criminals who learn the error of their ways from the church parishioners they hold hostage. On second thought, this could become a fan favorite. Meet The Spartans A film so inane I initially neglected to review it, assuming it would be never noticed and soon forgotten. Instead, this parody of every other bad movie that came out in the past year, ironically a meta-parody of itself, starring Carmen Electra with a cameo by Paris Hilton is the number one movie in the country.

The Chinese place a great deal of emphasis on the symbolic meanings behind specific foods during this holiday. In the start of the New Year oranges and tangerines are exchanged in pairs, representing the desire for sweetness. Fish symbolizes surplus, with enough to go through the New Year. Noodles are served to symbolize longevity, and rice to signify life and fertility. The Chinese New Year is the most important of all Chinese holidays. Friends and family members get together to wish each other good luck, pay respect to grandparents, set a precedent of their desires for the New Year, and to imagine what the zodiac animal has in store for the coming year. This is the year of the rat! Since each year is designated by one of 12 animals, the elderly, who often lose track of their age, just have to remember the year, of whichever animal they were born in. In the spirit of the New Year here are recipes you can prepare in celebration of the holiday, Gun Hay Fa Choy � Happy New Year!

But in addition to its culinary uses, ginger has been heralded as a powerful, effective ingredient with many health benefits. Ginger is a perennial plant with fleshy, fibrous roots. It is the root, or rhizome, of the plant that is eaten and used in recipes and folk medicine preparations. A common ingredient in Chinese, Indian and Southeast Asian foods for thousands of years, ginger was brought to Europe by around the 10th century AD, when it began appearing in books. In the 16th century the Spanish carried ginger to the East Indies and America, where it flourishes, particularly in the south. The plants can grow up to four-and-a-half feet tall. Ginger has been used in health and medicinal preparations by the Chinese for thousands of years. The fresh root has been used to treat colds, flu and respiratory infections. Ginger has also be used to treat stomach disorders like nausea, heartburn, and indigestion, as well as diarrhea � even commercial ginger ale is commonly used as home remedy for stomach aches. When the essential oil is extracted by steam distillation, ginger can increase circulation and improve digestion. Growing research shows that ginger has pain reducing qualities and is an anti-inflammatory, even when used in small amounts. According to Neal Barnard, M.D., author of Foods That Fight Pain, "It works like ibuprofen, but without the side effects." To reap the health benefits of ginger, it's best to have some every day. Just a half-teaspoon sliced into a stir-fry or crushed into tea is enough. Garlic Ginger Chicken Ingredients 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves 3 cloves crushed garlic 3 tablespoons ground ginger (powder) 1 tablespoon olive oil 4 limes, juiced Directions Pound the chicken to 1/2 inch thickness. In a large re-sealable plastic bag combine the garlic, ginger, oil and lime juice. Seal bag and shake until blended. Open bag and add chicken.Seal bag and marinate in refrigerator for no more than 20 minutes. Remove chicken from bag and grill or broil, basting with marinade, until cooked through and juices run clear. Disposeof any remaining marinade. This marinade could also be used with meat, fish or tofu. Recipe from allrecipes.com Getting your daily dose of ginger is easier than ever. Companies like The Ginger People (gingerpeople.com) are devoted to bringing to the public all things ginger, offering recipes and products. From the soothing qualities of ginger drinks like Ginger `gizer to the delightful balance of sweetness and spice in candied ginger, this pungent root suits a wide range of palates. There are many delicious ways to incorporate ginger into the diet � from the pickled ginger that accompanies sushi to crushed, dried ginger for tea. Grated ginger can be mixed into salad dressings or used in marinades. Hot Ginger Lemonade A simple, quick way to get ginger into your diet, and a boost when you're a bit under the weather. Ingredients 1 1/2 teaspoon bottled ginger juice 1 1/2 cups boiling water 1 teaspoon honey 2 teaspoon lemon juice Pinch cayenne pepper Directions Mix the ingredients together and serve warm.

Their appearance each year gives credence to the fact that art is alive and well at our local schools despite the general lack of appreciation in America's overall educational system. For once, therefore, we'd like to hear a presidential candidate comment on the importance of the arts. For once, we'd like to to hear the President's State of the Union speech champion the arts when a prerequisite list of domestic accomplishments is being cited. "Art" seems to be a nonexistent issue on America's agenda. Not so at our local student exhibits where innovation, vision, experimentation and craftsmanship are acknowledged concerns in our curriculum. Such works at Guild Hall celebrate the efforts of students from kindergarden to eighth grades and include diverse materials Photo by M.W. Weiss With Marion Wolberg Weiss Amagansett kindergarten or a Mayan cup display by Ross School's seventh grade. Regardless of the focus, all the projects were a pleasure to see and experience. Yet we are compelled, particularly, to comment on the following efforts: The Springs School's (sixth grade) pictographs; C.D.C.H.'s (sixth grade) "Harlequin by Picasso";C.D.C.H.'s (Kindergarden) "Montauk Mosaic"; Montauk Public School's birds in watercolor and ink; and Springs School's hanging textile display. Not only did the works show a command of technique, but also demonstated a knowledge of subject matter and a sensitivity of expression. Springs School, especially, used rags as found objects in a most mature way. The Ross School's installation of photographs and Islamic calligraphy in the expression of "truth" was another work that showed aesthetic maturity. It was the only consciously � developed "conceptual" piece in the show and real food for thought. The second part of the Student Art Show (grades 9-12) will be on view from February 16-March 9. "The Sphinx" at Stella Maris School (like clay and textiles) as well as media (like drawings, sculptures, watercolors, ceramics and mobiles). As with past years, the exhibit also features the interdisciplinary approach to art, where an art project is associated with a class in history, for example. Thus, the Stella Maris School (Grade 6) created an installation, The Sphinx, to go along with its study of Egypt. The lower grades also concentrate on group projects rather than individual expressions saved for older students. Consider, for example, a charming Koi fish pond by the Honoring the Artist: Lawrence Roberts This week's cover artist, Lawrence Roberts, is one of those rare individuals who enjoy a profession that seems far afield from the arts. Not only is Mr. Roberts a law professor, but also his expertise is unusual: space law. Why such a specialized area of endeavor? We find the answer in the following conversation. Q: I see that your interest in space law has influenced your photograph on our cover, which is called "Moon Roof." Of course, I'm kidding a little. A: My image was not influenced by space law. But you are right in one regard � it's a photograph, actually a reworked photograph, not a painting. I shot it with a digital camera and reworked it in Photoshop. It looks more representational this way. Q: How would you characterize your image? A: It's geometry and simplicity. I'm interested in post-production design and the process of experimentation. Q: What led you to use this technique? A: It was out of necessity. When I started five years ago, I didn't have the space in Manhattan to developed photographs so I went to digital. Q: How do you see photography fitting in with law, in particular international law? How does one area impact on another for you? A: I am interested in the communication of ideas; that's my theme. Photography and law are different manners of communication. I try to make my point-of-view obvious; a photograph is a statement, a perspective about reality. Q: How does this "reality" play a part in your teaching of law? A: Law is a perspective, too. In fact, I play the devil's advocate in class. I look at things in a skeptical way, adding another point-of-view. Q: Speaking of class, how did you get your ideas across, your methodology regarding introductory courses in law? A: I used role playing a lot. The students would say, "Why should I take this course?" Through role playing, they would understand why a knowledge of law will be helpful in all aspects of life. Q: Law should be taught in public schools, too. A: I agree. Q: How would you describe your students; college students have changed a lot in recent years; they aren't that interested in learning. A: When I first started teaching, I found that only one-third of the students were really into the process. I remember my first class was like riding herd on a bunch of wild horses. Q: I've had a few of those. Changing the subject, I bet people are really interested in what space law is, so what is it? A: It deals with issues for granting frequencies, controlling frequencies, dealing with space tourism, handling space debris. With space tourism, for example, there are legal issues related to people who sign up to go into space. Q: This is really exciting and new. Not like the usual duties of a lawyer. A: Right. I was a lawyer but I didn't like dealing with drudgery, doing drafts of leases. With law, there's always the idea of the "new." There's always a new law. And there's always the idea of how we interpret terms. The law is subject to human perspective. Anyway, I like what's new, what's on the edge. � Marion Wolberg Weiss To see Mr. Roberts' flickr.com/photos/ldrfolio. photographs, visit Dan's Papers covers curated by Dan Rattiner and designed by Kelly Merritt and Dan Rattiner.

Guild Hall, 158 Main DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 64 www.danshamptons.com Health, Beauty & Fitness Healthy Hamptons Some days the world seems like a scary place. But, last Friday I got a reassuring feeling about the place where we live. The South Fork Community Health Initiative and the East Hampton Healthcare Foundation held their monthly health fair, which is free and open to the public, at the East Hampton Healthcare Center. Professionals from various medical fields came together to provide heart disease prevention tips, glucose and cholesterol screening, blood pressure screening, Reiki circle and stress reduction tips, HIV/STD testing and mammography scheduling to those in need on the East End. The place was packed, with folks lined up in every direction. Attendees were grateful for the health services that were provided that day. "It's nice because the doctor is really expensive, it is a very beautiful thing" said Ida Luna of East Hampton, who came to get her cholesterol and glucose levels checked. I got on the line to get tested for HIV and STDs. Sam Martinez of East Hampton stood with a smile on his face joking, with friends. "It's something you have to do, you can find out a lot about yourself and it makes you feel better and secure to know that you are healthy," he said. "You have to tell the truth and the doctors will help you." When it was my turn, I entered a private office where I was greeted by Dalys Febres, a counselor with the New York State Department of Health. "We come here three to four times a year to offer free HIV testing," she said. "The test is confidential, no names, we use only numbers and codes." I stuck out my finger and felt a mild jab. Febres asked routine questions and answered all of mine. The test took ten minutes and as confident as I was that all was well, I felt a rush of anxiety as Febres presented my test result, even though it was negative. If a test came back positive, Febres would be required to follow up with the person and help him or her to seek the proper healthcare, a crucial service of disease prevention. Febres performs the testing throughout Long Island. "This community is pretty safe, there are mostly old families that have been here for years, with monogamous relationships. People are very health conscious around here," she said. My next stop was the STD testing room, where Karen Diffley, a public health nurse for the Suffolk County Health Department spoke perfect Spanish to a patient. "I've worked with the migrant population for Photo by Lauren Isenberg The Lazo's get their cholesterol and glucose checked. Let us help you build your business by advertising in Dan's Papers Home Guides. � Contractors � Handymen � Furniture Stores � Landscapers � Plumbers � Painters � Electricians � Carpenters � Every Home Service Business The next Dan's Papers Home Guide will be published on February 29th, 2008 Deadline for copy submission is 7 days prior to publication date For more information contact 631-537-0500 Located at the Pridwin Hotel and Dering Harbor Inn, Shelter Island over 20 years," she explained. She and nurse practitioner Marian Webster took blood and educated me on their services. "We're here, doing work for the health department and doing STD screenings, providing an important service to the community," they said. These services are especially important since blood tests for HIV and STDs are often not covered under health insurance plans. As a result many people neglect to have them. A healing procedure that also may not be covered by health insurance was the Reiki Circle. Joan Garro, a Reiki master with the Center of Living Light and resident of Sag Harbor, conducted a Reiki Circle. "Reiki is hands on, gentle and subtle. It is an energy balance that works from the inside, out," said Garro. "It effects the mind, which effects the body, which effects the mind: you come full circle." Reiki begins with meditation to quiet the mind and then the Reiki master moves her hands around the patient's body to relieve stress and sooth anxiety. "Today is the first time anyone has used guided meditation (CD) translated into Spanish! It was wonderful," said Garro. This technique was a popular service that day. Heart health was a big concern for attendees. Maggie Lazo of Montauk escorted her parents, Rosario and Manuel, in to have their cholesterol and glucose levels checked. "It's a great help for us because a lot of people don't have insurance. We heard about it at our church," said Lazo. It was a family affair as Lazo held her tiny baby in her arms and watched over her parents while they were getting checked. Six doctors sat at long tables asking and answering questions about health, while everyone patiently waited their turn. Every person involved in this project expressed genuine interest in helping to educate, diagnose and treat people for their personal health needs. "A lot of people show up, we're here the first Friday of every month from October to March," said program director Stacy Spencer. This event was also sponsored by Southampton Hospital and the South Fork Breast Coalition.

DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 65 www.danshamptons.com Health, Beauty & Fitness Setting Up for the Perfect Home Workout Is the cold weather relegating you the indoors? Are you left vegging out and indulging in just a little too much reality TV? Fortunately, the end is near. There's a wide variety of home exercise equipment that will motivate you to get in shape, without leaving the confines of your cozy abode. One of the most cost-effective equipment options is considered balance balls. It's great for improving agility and coordination, but while you're getting used to them, you may want to hold onto a wall or prop the ball against something sturdy for stability. A great balence ball exercise is to position the ball under your hips and lower torso, with your knees straight or bent, and your hands behind your head. Slowly roll your body down the ball. Lift your chest off the ball, bringing your shoulders up until your body is in a straight line. Make sure your body is in alignment and that your abs are pulled in. A great exercise for firming up your posterior is to lie on the balancing ball with your head, neck and shoulders supported and your knees bent � a tabletop position. Lower your hips towards the floor without rolling on the ball. Squeeze the glutes to raise your hips until your body is in a straight line like a bridge. You can hold weights on your hips for added intensity if you like, but make sure you press through your heels and not your toes. In addition to balancing balls, treadmills, exercise bicycles, and elliptical trainers are all popular choices especially for those who have basements where they can set up these large pieces of equipment. Treadmills are great �simple, easy. Not to mention, running is a wonderful way to clear your head. When purchasing a treadmill look for a steady pace, wide no learning curve and you can control the workout easily. Bikes primarily workout leg and posterior muscles and come in a variety of price ranges, but they typically start at around $500. Lastly the elliptical trainer offers a non-impact workout appropriate for just about anyone. The movement is horizontally oval and you can adjust the resistance for varying degrees of intensity. They typically start at around $600. If you're not ready to invest in any exercise equipment there are countless ways to exercise without machines. Some of my favorite workouts involve front lunges � taking a giant step forward with your right leg, keeping your left leg behind, and your knees at 90-degree angles and behind your toes. Then, push through the front heel to straighten your leg. Repeat this movement and then switch to other leg. Another easy exercise entails getting on your hands and knees and extending your right leg straight out behind you with your toes resting on the floor. Then, squeeze your posterior to lift your leg to hip level. Hold this position and slowly lift your left arm to shoulder height, using abs to keep you upright. Hold for 2 counts and repeat using your other arm and leg. Remember to always begin your workout by stretching or walking in place for at least 5 minutes and to buy proper sneakers and workout clothing. There are also countless pilates, yoga and meditaion books and videos that can help guide you through your workout. So get up and start getting in shape � the summer is only a few months away! � Sharon Feiereisen belt, incline and speed settings as well as a safety shut-off. Varying speed, resistance and incline allows you to build endurance while burning calories. However, in the $1,000+ range, treadmills are a substantial investment. Stationary bikes are another widely used piece of machinery for exercising at home. They offer a nonimpact cardiovascular workout and are perfect for someone who is just starting to exercise, since there's CAN YOU THINK OF A BETTER WAY TO BEAT THE WINTER BLAHS?

And while you can't magically transport yourself to a beach chair on a tropical island, you can look like you've spent some time lounging in one before your next social event. So break out your biggest round brush, set aside a few minutes and read on to find out how to look like you've had a Caribbean vacation in ten minutes flat. First, we must pay homage to the classics that turned everyone's attention from blush to bronze as soon as they were released � NARS Bronzing Powder and Stila Sun. Both of these products are light and infused with tiny golden flecks that not only highlight the contours of your face, but also disguise any unevenness or slight blemishes you might have. The NARS Bronzer is also the perfect companion to that famous NARS face highlighter and blush � the Multiple Orgasm. There's also a new movement in bronzer that is a big hit in the general population, as on catwalks and photo shoots everywhere: i.d. bareMinerals All-Over Face Color. These feathery, light powders are a little trickier to choose than the classics (they come in thirteen different shades), but they do wonders for even the most sensitive or acne-prone skin, and look natural while covering flaws. Of course, not everyone likes to carry a purse big enough to fit one of those massive, fluffy bronzer brushes and a compact, so companies like Clarins and Sugar Cosmetics now make bronzer that comes fully loaded into a blush brush with a top. Sugar's Travel Tan and Clarins Summer Fever make it easy to touch up your tan wherever you go and will keep the inside of your purse smudge-free. If you want an all-over glow, you might want to test-drive Geurlain's new Terracotta Spray SPF 10. It's not a fake tanner, so it doesn't smell like chemicals, but it ensures an even, light application of the same color that has made their Terracotta bronzing powder a favorite. Another option would be a liquid makeup bronzer like Benefit's Glamazon. Similar in concept to their ever-popular Benetint, Glamazon is a light liquid that can be brushed on anywhere for a golden glow that stays put as long as you want it. There are thousands of bronzing gadgets, lotions and potions from which to choose, but these triedand-true favorites are guaranteed to get you looking rested and glowing in minutes. Apply some of your favorite product to your neck and shoulders before you hit the town and you're sure to make your friends wonder how you found the time to work on that oh-so-perfect tan. � Sabrina C.

Journalists keep on the pulse of what's "new," what's "hot" and what's "in" in the world of horticulture. "New," of course, is a relative term when it comes to flowers, since most are variations on a theme, and have been in development for many years before they are released to the market. Hybridizers spend years developing new varieties of flowers. They prize themselves on their abilities to take unlike parent flowers and breed them to incorporate the best characteristics of each parent. The process is one of trial and error, with many failures. It would be even harder if there were no science of genetics to apply. The results, of course, can be quite controversial, such as the recent furor over new varieties of corn introduced to the market that are insect resistant and highly productive. All hybridized plants go through a series of trials to test their viability and usefulness before being released for sale. Plant trials involve growing the seeds both in containers and in the field to determine if the new flowers meet the desired objectives. For example, a hybrid may be created to incorporate the hardiness of one parent and the colorful blooms of another. Should the plant trials indicate the result does not yield a strong, colorful plant, the hybridizer will start over to create a hybrid that demonstrates the desired traits. This lengthy and expensive process ensures a well-bred plant for consumers. Once a hybridizer is sure the plant meets the desired standards for performance, the seeds are put into trial production. This trial phase ensures the seeds yield flowers with the appropriate characteristics on a continuing basis. If so, the flower is pronounced a success. The flower then goes into market production, which involves growing the parent flowers, pollinating the flowers by hand, and gathering the hybrid seeds. The resulting production seeds are subjected to a quality control process. The seeds are germinated and inspected to verify that the resulting plants are true to type. After testing, the seeds are packaged and shipped to wholesale distributors who sell to growers who, in turn, sell the flowers to nurseries and retail garden centers. By the time a gardener comes into the picture, the hybrid flowers have been checked and rechecked many times. Gardeners can be sure they are buying seeds or plants that bloom exactly to date. Because of the expense involved in developing hybrids, seeds and plants can be quite expensive. There are yearly introductions of hybrids to the market. And, for 2008, we have selected a few that seem to be spectacular. Jackson & Perkins is well known for its hybrid roses. One that caught our eye this year is a new introduction called "Mardi Gras." A floribunda rose, it has received rave reviews for its unique carnival of colors and enormous bloom production. The plant produces apricot-orange buds that open slowly to reveal bright pink and yellow blooms with a yellow base � quite lovely. The plant grows to about four feet high and produces four-inch blooms. It has a light fragrance. Burpee Seed Company is well known as a staple in the seed industry. This year, there are two flowers to look for. "Fanciful Stardust" is a hybrid impatiens type with rose-like blooms touched with a pixie dust effect. The flower combines double petals that combine the fanciful and stardust type impatiens in one lovely flower. The plant is covered in blooms all seasons and is a love shade of orange and pink. Also from Burpee is a hybrid zinnia called "Bowie." It produces an intensely colored, longlasting flower. Blooms are threeto-five inches in diameter and have a prominent center surrounded by bright rose, with scarlet and yellow petals. It flowers non-stop all summer. And, for once, here is a zinnia that is somewhat rust resistant. Rhodoland is a hybridizer of rhododendrons. This staple of sophisticated gardens how has two lovely additions. Keep an eye out for "Inamorata," with a lovely bright white flower that produces large blooms. Also of interest is their "Orange Schnapps X Yellow Pippin" cross that produces a beautiful, translucent orange flower with pink centers. While still February, it is not too early to start ordering seeds for the coming season. Some of the newer hybrids are worth keeping an eye out for.

I must say that as a rabid fan of the New York Jets, I found myself routing for the Giants too � a rare occurrence in New York Sports where Jets fans hate the Giants, Mets fans hate the Yankees, Islander fans hate the Rangers, and Knick fans hate the Nets (and vice versa.) But the story of this team was too great not to become excited about; a coach and quarterback vilified by both fans and the press succeeding in a dramatic and exciting way, a pass play that will go down in history completed by a scramble and a dramatic catch by a backup player, and a victory over an unbeaten team. If Dan had written this as an article, people would accuse you as writing one of your fun articles. But I do want to correct one part of the article. The Giants did not play New England twice during the regular season. The only game they played this season with New England was the one they lost at the end of the regular season. The only teams profootball teams play twice in a season are the ones in their own division (for the Giants it is with the Eagles, Redskins and Cowboys) interdivision and inter-league games are played only once a season with the team. Harry E. Heller, Ph.D. President Research Consulting Agency East Hampton Via e-mail They played and the Giants lost in pre-season and regular season then won the Super Bowl. � DR PEAS IN A POD Dear Dan, After reading your article THE GIANTS WIN! I have a lot of things to discuss and correct. The Giants are still just a mediocre team. Eli is still just an average QB; He will never have the numbers Brady puts up. In 2007 Brady had 50 TD passes. Eli had 23, I believe a fellow named Randy Moss had more TD's thrown to just him than ELI did to all of his receivers. Lets talk about the NY fan base for a minute as well. An entire season goes by, then the Giants win the super bowl and all of a sudden everyone loves football and everyone loves the Giants. I know this because I live here in NY and I'm seeing it with my own eyes. Even on my way to work the same trucks I've seen commuting now have Giants bumper stickers and helmets on them. Talk about jumping on the bandwagon. Now to the real reason I'm writing in to you. This e-mail Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org article is untruthful, and you can't be wrong with facts if you're going to gloat about your teams' victory. First of all you said, "In Forty-Three years of the NFL, only once has a wild card won the Super Bowl." Are you sure? Not too long ago in 2005, the Steelers won the Super Bowl as a wild card, along with the 1980 Raiders, the 2000 Ravens, and the 1997 Broncos. A total of 9 Teams have made it to the big game from a wild card spot, those are the only teams to win it all. By the way 43 years, where did you get that number? In 1920 the league was formed with 11 teams called the American Professional Football Association, and in 1922 it was renamed the NFL. The wild card itself wasn't used until the 1970 season so you can rephrase your sentence and say "In 38 years of the NFL's wild card..." Moving on.... Lets now talk about how you said " ...they would play the New York Giants a team they had beaten twice during the regular season and somehow had wobbled into the arena" Well ill just keep this one simple. NO you're wrong, they played them once. If you noticed the Giants this season played teams like the cowboys and Eagles more than once, why you ask, there in the same division. Which is why New England will never play the Giants more than once in a season. Before this season the last time they actually played them during the regular season was in 2003. Keeping on the same topic you said, "Meanwhile, the New England Patriots were fourteen wins and no defeats" no they were 15-0 It was the last game of the season week 17! According to you it was the "second to last game of the regular season." Finally you said referring of Tom Brady that "His Numbers were terrible" well if you call his numbers terrible then what were Eli's numbers? Eli was 19-34 that's 55% and 255 Yards with an INT. Brady was 29 for 48 at 60% with 266 total yards. Eli has thrown 266 yards or more only nine times his entire career, while Brady has had 266 yards or more ten times just this season. That's beside the point. So next time get the facts straight, well who knows when next time will be, it definitely will not be next year. Thanks, Anonymous Angry Patriots Fan Via e-mail Okay. � DR CHARGED UP Dear Dan, I read you article on the taser death of David Glowczski. There is some information you will need to know about how the taser works first. The actual taser the Southampton Village Police used on David is no longer in use. That particular make and model is no longer availed to law enforcement. The unit delivered excessive electric voltage. After the unit is discharged a user can cable the taser to a PC and read the data the taser stores. The computer software will create a series of reports from the data. In the case of the taser unit used on David the data was corrupted and unreadable. The reason David had 9 sets of burn marks on his body is that that he was not "tasered" per se. The front cartridge containing the darts and coiled wires was removed on orders from the Sergeant on duty. The user was ordered by Schucht to remove the cartridge and use the taser in the `drive stun' mode. This means when the taser is triggered the electric arc is visible and the two electrodes become hot and burn the flesh. Drive stunning David was not the decision of the Officer using the taser. Why was David drive stunned with the taser? Probably because the officers at the scene did not have the confidence from training in hand to hand combat. Additionally both officers were not considered to be the most fit in the department. The taser was an easy alternative. There is much debate over excited delirium. Positional asphyxia is a more likely explanation and should be explored. I thought David was quite harmless in all my dealings with him. I wish I had been working that morning. President Christopher A. Broich Via e-mail Chris Brioch was a Southampton Village Police Officer at that time. He is currently fighting charges. � DR BRAVO! Dear Dan, Celebrating the longevity of the marriage or Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson is certainly a tribute. Noting the fact that they continue to appear on our stages occasionally is also of interest. However, referring to Eli Wallach as merely an accomplished actor is akin to referring to Bill Clinton as a dabbler in politics. Eli Wallach has graced the American stage and screen for many years in memorable roles. He must be called what he is...one of our greatest living actors. And, God willing, he will continue to be so for many years to come. Kathleen L. Policano East Hampton Via e-mail They are, both of them, wonderful people. � DR Police Blotter Not Too Smart Here is a pretty good example of what not to do when you are about to get arrested. A man in East Hampton was charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest after he was pulled over and charged with a DWI. When the man was being arrested, he became upset and started to smack the hood of the police car and became loud. He also took off on foot after the arresting officer called for backup. Shortly after he was apprehended � expect to see this on the next episode of COPS. Shelter Island All was quiet on Shelter Island last week. There wasn't a single police report that came through the wire. Seal On The Beach An injured seal washed ashore onto the beach in East Hampton. The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation was called in, but when they responded, the seal had moved on. He is now swimming happily in the waters around Georgica Beach. Marijuana Two twenty-year olds were arrested in Southampton for possession of marijuana after they were spotted leaving a known drug location in the area. Police arrested the stoners who are most likely going to plead half-baked. Police Sting A police sting that led to the arrest of several bouncers and security guards at a Hampton Bays nightclub took place last week. Officers sent an underage girl with a fake ID into the nightclub and when she got through, arrests were made. One of the bouncers, who has been doing security work for close to a decade, was pretty bummed out about the sting because he wasn't the one who had checked the ID. Sag Trouble A woman in Sag Harbor got into an argument with her roommate who attempted to throw Nair on her hair. Thankfully she missed and there was no need for police to contact the hair club for men. Living Room, Bedroom Stolen In Bridgehampton somebody stole a flat screen television, two cable boxes, a king-sized mattress, a twin mattress and a sofa. Police are on the hunt for one very strong criminal with a very large truck. Vitamins In Westhampton a report came in that several hundred dollars worth of vitamins were stolen from a home while it was unoccupied. No leads have been found, but the victim is now finally agreeing to eat his vegetables. � Written and Compiled by David Lion Rattiner DAN'S PAPERS, February 15, 2008 Page 69 www.danshamptons.com TAX DIRECTORY / MIND, BODY & SPIRIT Tax Directory Health Massage Therapy Pilates Massage Therapy Pilates Tax Directory Art Lessons Massage Therapy Therapy Acupuncture Fitness get a flawless look Classifieds & Service Directory address: Hill Street Southampton ( doors west of the movie theater) Health Mary Kay� Mineral Powder Foundation goes on with the sweep of a brush.
