County Sheriff's Helicopter Tickets 128 Motorists on the LIE By Dan Rattiner A group of Suffolk County Sheriffs took off in a helicopter last Wednesday to monitor and order the giving out of traffic tickets on the Long Island Expressway. The pilot swooped low over the LIE first one way and then the other while officers in the back peered out, made notes, and then radioed down to officers in squad cars along the sides of the expressway to pull people over and give out tickets. One hundred twenty eight tickets were given out between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m., or, as the Sheriff referred to it, as oh seven hundred and oh eleven hundred. The tickets were given out for all sorts of different violations, including speeding, reckless driving, improper changing of lanes and even driving while on the cellphone (chopper flies alongside, officer peeks in), which, in addition to everything else now, gets you two points on your driver's license. Nineteen tickets were given out for that. Also 11 tickets were given out to enforce the very newest law--the new "move over" law. The operation had a certain military quality about it. It was conducted by the County's Aerial Enforcement Unit. It made use of a U.S. Department of Justice Law Enforcement Dan Rattiner's second memoir, IN THE HAMPTONS TOO: Further Encounters with Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Billionaires and Celebrities, is now available in hardcover wherever books are sold. The first memoir, IN THE HAMPTONS, published by Random House, is now available in paperback. It is amazing they'd have a helicopter out there flying so dangerously and illegally low. Aviation Technology Department airborne vehicle. "The public has a right to expect that we are acting aggressively to catch motorists that disrupt traffic and cause accidents," said Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent DeMarco who oversaw the operation. A lot of money was spent organizing and carrying out this mission. I do not think, even with all the tickets given out, that the income covered the outflow, although I am certain that the operation surely did terrorize the populace and slowed traffic during its duration. There are cheaper ways to do this. I have just read in this morning's New York Post (Friday, February 18, page 11) that the Army has developed a new voice-activated military drone called a "Nano Hummingbird." It looks exactly like a little hummingbird and it can fly, on command, at the speed of a hummingbird, swoop low, hover in one spot and take pictures and videos that can immediately be beamed down to people on the ground. I also think that, even though it took five years of research and development to produce, this mechanical hummingbird has to be a whole lot cheaper than having some damn noisy, aviation-fuel-exhaust-emitting, rocket-toting chopper battering around on the LIE frighten- ing everybody and lousing up the environment. The hummingbird is also "green" and environmentally friendly, sort of, although not really. The Nano Hummingbird, according to the story, also records what people say and beams that down. It can perch on wires and windowsills. It also weighs less than two AA batteries. It doesn't say if it cheeps, but I'd imagine it does. God knows what they could get these Peeping Toms to find out about. If you think about it, it just blends in with all the other hummingbirds. Although here on Long Island, where there are few hummingbirds, it could blend in with the seagulls. In any case, it could certainly confuse the hell out of bad guys trying to figure out who to shoot at. Getting back to stories about helicopters, it is also in the news this week that East Hampton Town is disconnecting from a citizens group that organizes and objects to the very loud noise of choppers coming and going at the East Hampton Airport. As you know, well-to-do people hire helicopters to take them out to the Hamptons. Sometimes on the way out, pilots fly low when they are not supposed to. (The Mayor of Oyster Bay once said that the chopper pilots would fly in your front door and out your back if it would save five minutes.) The FAA has laws against helicopters flying below certain heights in residential neighborhoods. The Town says instead of just the East Hampton noise group, they will instead hook up with a regional citizens' chopper complaining group.

Friends Forever It's Been 20 Years Now, Me and the Corn Plant I Rescued By Dan Rattiner One day when my daughter was a junior at East Hampton High School, she asked me if I could participate in the school's Homecoming Weekend Parade. The reason she wanted me, actually, was because she wanted my car. My car was one of those big old Buick Skylark convertibles with the tailfins and a top that went up and down. My daughter was a member of the Queen's Court, she told me, and the other four members of the court and, indeed, the actual Homecoming Queen with a crown on her head, needed to sit on the top of the back seat of a beautiful convertible car during the parade and she had volunteered me and my car. I'd be the driver. I was proud to do this for them. The parade line would be a short one with just four floats, one for each class, she told me. The floats would be all lined up by the curb on Newtown Lane in front of the Junior High School at a quarter to one on Saturday of Homecoming Weekend. The high school marching band would be at the front. The queen and her court in the chauffeur-driven convertible at the back. At the appropriate time, I drove over and took my spot at the back. Shortly, the girls, all beautiful in gowns and crowns, climbed aboard, giggling and took their seats, the five of them, the queen in the middle and the court, my daughter among them, two on each side. Promptly at a quarter to one, the baton twirler at the front blew a whistle, the snare drums sounded and we started off up the lane toward the high school. Crowds of people lined both sides of the road. It was a brisk November day. The leaves swirled around in the breeze and off in the distance you could hear the crowd in the stadium cheering as the football players were apparently already coming out onto the field one after another. It was almost time for kickoff. At the pace we were going, we'd be there in about 15 minutes. Directly in front of me was the last of the four floats in the parade, the Senior Float, which consisted of a flatbed truck with rocks and palm trees and cavemen and cavewomen onboard all wiggling and dancing in their furs to the theme song of the popular cartoon show "The Flintstones." The theme song is only 15 seconds long. It played over and over and over. Actually, they didn't have palm trees. They had a single eight-foot-tall corn plant on the back of the truck, posing there as a palm tree. You could imagine it a palm tree if you wanted. Soon, nose to tail, the parade arrived at the entrance to the high school grounds. We headed down the horseshoe road toward the front (continued on pag 16) OUR FORMER LEGISLATOR IS GOING TO JAIL? By Dan Rattiner Former County Legislator George Guldi of Westhampton Beach was convicted of grand larceny and insurance fraud by a jury in Islip last week after two days of deliberations. He was found innocent of two other lesser offenses, one of which was possession of a forged instrument. He will be sentenced on March 13, the prosecutor is asking for 22 years for what Guldi did. This is just the first of what is expected to be several trials against Guldi. The others will involve co-defendants in what many believe was an elaborate "mortgage stacking" Ponzi scheme which, in good times, involved buying and selling properties and using the profits and mortgages to finance the bigger and bigger deals that came along--something that works fine as long as the bubble doesn't burst, which as we all know, it did. All together almost three dozen properties in the Hamptons and elsewhere valued at $60 million were involved and toward the end, when the money ran out, Guldi and his partners are alleged to have begun pocketing the monies that leaked down out here and there-- an entirely illegal business--until finally there was nowhere to go but belly up. This larger matter--the present case just decided involved about $850,000--will be adjudicated later in the year since there is such a big tangle of evidence. The first case was pretty straightforward and so came to trial before the larger one. The basics of it are this: Guldi's home, where he lives with his wife and children, burned to the ground on November 30, 2008. No one was in the house at the time. It had been a big house and the insurance company issued a check to Guldi and the bank that held the mortgage on his house for $850,000 to rebuild it. The law states that when a payment like that is smaller than the mortgage on the house, then it's supposed to be cashed by the bank that (continued on next page) Dan's Papers February 25, 2011 danspapers.com Page 14 Gotcha (continued from page 11) East Hampton picture that way. And there is truth to that. I have seen many helicopters, flying low over East Hampton, cross over into Southampton while maintaining the same low and noisy height as they had when they were flying over East Hampton, as surprising as that might seem. Better a regional complaint department than just a local one. All this yabada yabada yabada and we don't care about what happens anywhere else is just a lot of noise pollution if you ask me. Helicopters are not allowed to fly so low you can peer in a car window to see whether somebody is wiggling their toes or singing a song to something on the radio. It is amazing they'd have a helicopter out there flying so dangerously and illegally low like that. Not long ago, I expressed alarm at another kind of high-tech surveillance of motor vehicles out here. Several of our local police forces had purchased scanner guns that could attach to the roofs of squad cars and, by laser beam, review the expiration dates of all the registration and inspection stickers on the windows of all the parked cars as they drove by. It would almost instantly match up what they found with the database in Albany, and go "ding" if one were out of date or if there were a warrant out for the owner of the car because of some insurance lapse. If that were the case, the cops would pull over and box in that car, wait till the owner showed up, then read him or her their rights, seize the car and have it towed away to the police pound until the insurance lapse was cleared and the fines paid in the weeks or months ahead. Readers may recall that story and how my wife and I and our dog, along with several bags of groceries including half-gallon containers of ice cream, were left standing curbside in front of Citarella's in East Hampton on Main Street one sunny summer's day. Best thing to do from now on is, I think-- stay home and hide under the bed. Guldi (continued from previous page) holds that mortgage to partially pay them back for the money they had lent to Guldi. (The mortgage amount was $1.7 million.) Instead, Guldi got hold of the check and had a friend of his, Ethan Ellner, who is a forger, endorse it for the bank and give it back to him. Then Guldi put it into his own bank account. It was straightforward, desperate, and somehow with his larger scheme falling apart around him, he hoped he could use this money to plug up other holes in his sinking ship. The trial itself, which lasted a little over a week, was extraordinary. Guldi said he couldn't afford a lawyer and would take his chances defending himself. Ellner, who has already pleaded guilty for his part in the fraud, testi- fied against him, describing what Guldi had asked him to do and what they had done. Guldi, in cross examining Ellner, tried to establish that Ellner had not talked to him over the telephone at all because on the dates and times mentioned, he was away from telephone towers. Guldi also asked Ellner if he remembered the potted plants on the front porch when Ellner said he visited Guldi at his home and Ellner said he did, but it was a trick and there were no pots. Guldi also tried to call the sitting County Supervisor Steve Levy to the stand for testimony in which he would show that Levy had given Ellner legitimate contracts for title search work that Ellner also did, in exchange for campaign contributions that Levy "demanded." The judge would not allow Levy to be subpoenaed and, in fact, not even mentioned, which got Guldi, as his own lawyer, describing this so-called affair as between Ellner and "he who's name must not be mentioned." Guldi also called himself to the stand. After the verdict, Guldi left in tears. An attempt to create a situation where Guldi could be out on bail, put forward by a county lawyer assisting Guldi, ended in failure even though Guldi pleaded that he needed to be around his wife and kids and that he was in poor health and would not be running away.

The kids were anxious. Why were they there? They wanted to run off to the cheering crowd in the stadium just up the hill. But a woman, probably a teacher, stopped them. They couldn't leave the trucks like that. Pull everything off, she said, and throw it all in the Dumpsters before you go. And so, confusion reigned for 15 seconds. Now they were done and they were off, running in their costumes at high speed up the hill to the game. Then the flatbeds in front of me pulled away and I was alone. Sitting in my car, at the wheel, with signs, tape, posterboard, balloons, crepe paper and other junk in the dumpsters all around me, I saw, lying sideways across the top of a Dumpster just next to my car, this eight-foot-long corn plant. They had left it for dead. But it wasn't dead. It was just left that way, something to throw out. It seemed to me, feeling sorry for it, that it was in need of rescue. I would do that. I got out of my car, gently went over to the Dumpster and slid the corn plant over and onto my car. Its top lay between the two front seats and the bottom over the trunk. Poor thing. Carefully, now an ambulance on a mission, I drove back into town. I'd have to hurry to save its life, I thought, and so I drove it over to Wittendale's Florist and got some of the work- A Magnificent Italian Neoclassic Giltwood Console Rome, Italy; late 18th century; from Gary Rubinstein Antiques Defined by Quality & Design THE SPRING SHOW March 9�13, 2011 Honoring Mario Buatta March 9, Private VIP Preview March 10�13, Open to the Public March 11 & 12, Royal Oak Foundation Lectures Park Avenue Armory | 643 Park Avenue at 67th Street | New York City For details, show information and tickets, please visit avenueshows.com or call 646.442.1627 men there to get the owner to come out. "Can you save this?" I asked Don Horowitz, motioning at the unconscious corn plant. "It's from the parade." He walked around it and looked it over. "A lot of leaves are split, probably from the wind," he said. "But I could have it good as new in a month." "Cost?" "Nothing. You saved a plant. I'll do my part." Fifteen years went by. My daughter grew up. But that rescued corn plant, in its pot, stayed at my house in my living room, standing tall, living large and providing occasional shade for the livingroom sofa when the sun was right. I didn't take care of the plant myself. I had a once-a-week housekeeper who did that. And after I told her the story, she said she would give it special love and care. One day in that 15th year, the plant blossomed with white flowers, all from a stalk way up at the top. It had never happened before. What a happy plant! I was told it might now do this every two or three years. For me, this was sort of an ultimate "thank you" from the plant for saving its life. But I could not bear the smell of the blossoms. It was not a bad smell. It was a rich, lush, perfumy but suffocating smell, and it wafted through every corner of the house. It seemed I was allergic to it. My eyes teared, I began sneezing. It seemed I might even have to leave the house. I called Wittendale's. "Just cut off the flowers and throw them out," he said. "But it's MATING!" "There are no bees in your house. No other corn plants in your house. Cut them off." I felt terrible, but I got up on a chair and with scissors, that's what I did. "There, there," I said to the plant. I said a little prayer. We had been so close all these years. Two years later, the corn plant blossomed again, and again I had to cut the blossoms. The next year, the plant seemed to not be doing so well. My housekeeper noticed it and said it might be getting old, but one way we could renew it would be to trim it way back, then repot it and then it could grow again. I balked at this, but after a few weeks, relented. Now the plant, in its new pot, was just two feet high. Now six years passed without a blossom. And last week, the plant once again up to the ceiling, blossomed. We had company coming for dinner. I cut the stalk with the blossom on it and aired out the house. But during dinner, I got woozy anyway. I thought I was having a stroke. I got a headache, felt dizzy, got all stuffed up and strange feeling. I thought I couldn't think straight. I went off to lie down in the television room. But then people came in. There had been a second blossom on the tree. It was way up in the corner in the back. It was cut down now, so it was safe to come back. And so I did. The allergic reaction lingered for the rest of the evening however. After everybody left, my wife said maybe we ought to give the plant away. I had done my part. It was all those years ago.

People will take only slight notice of it. There will be no party, no celebration of the seventh billion person born. It will pass and we will head rapidly toward eight. What is of interest to me, however, is the fact that scientists now say that the total population of humans on this planet will get to nine billion and then level off. I have a number of questions about this. First of all, when I was born, which was in 1939, the population was just one billion. I learned in school that this was quite a milestone, because it had only recently been that the population had begun to soar, what with modern medicine and the industrial revolution and all the new gadgets and safeguards we were inventing that could make that happen. I think it took another 15 years to get to two billion, and that was another milestone. It also seemed pretty remarkable. The human population on the planet had been pretty stable at half a billion for at least 200 years and the human race had been on the planet for millions of years before that without beginning to burst at the seams. What was going on? Then came three billion seven years later. Now, just a few years after that, it is crossing seven billion heading toward the magic number of nine billion, the maximum. This nine billion maximum number is pretty well agreed upon. But how was it arrived at? And why is that the number? I'm not sure I want to know. There's going to be a law that we can't have more than nine billion? Are we going to run out of food? Out of water? Out of space to put everybody? It can't be good. The only frame of reference I have for this apparent ceiling is with some infestation that sometimes happens in your home. Ants appear. You fight them, but it doesn't matter, more arrive. Then there is a whole lot more of them, then, on their own, the infestation goes away. Honestly, I think the human race is simply not smart enough to hit this ceiling and, on its own, agree voluntarily that people should not have any more than one baby per couple. On the other hand, there is a country that is doing this. China has a one-child rule. There are financial rewards for having one child, financial punishments if you have more. Having more than one child in China is a road to poverty and public ridicule. And though it has not stopped (continued on next page) DRAMA AT THE HOUSE FIRE IN HAMPTON BAYS By Stacy Dermont A village fire alarm is a deadly thing. When it wakes you in the night, you're suddenly wideawake and worried. Your heart flies to your throat and your eyes open, you try to focus. "Is it my house?" No. "Is my family okay?" Yes. "Can I help, is it my neighbor's house?" If the answer is no, you try to get back to sleep, knowing that there are brave men and women out in the cold working to keep your community whole. You might say a little prayer for them and the people in need of their help. In the first minutes of Monday, February 14, fire alarms sounded and people came running from all directions around Hampton Bays to Quail Run, to try to save the home of local math teacher Michelle Ferguson. The firefighters brought every truck they had. The East Quogue volunteers rushed to the scene too. The Ferguson family got out safely, with nothing but their pajamas. Not even a pocketbook or a baby book made it out with them. Our local firefighters fought diligently to quell the blaze but the home was a total loss. At one point in the battle, another layer of tragedy unfolded. The first floor caved in and two brave volunteers went with it. People on the outside screamed and shouted, others held their breath. I know firsthand the emotion that crackles around a fire. I grew up on a farm and I have heard animals burning alive. I can still smell them. Volunteer firefighters, like my parents in our small farming community upstate, experience all of the risks of professionals and none of the benefits, except one. Volunteers don't get health care coverage or the best equipment. They don't get profiled in The New York Times, they don't pose for calendars. What they do get to sustain them in the face of tremendous risk is the lifelong thanks and respect of their peers and fellow citizens. Sometimes that is the greatest offering that can be made. More firefighters would have gone through that floor if they did not observe protocol. Several were waiting outside for permission to go in when the fiery cave-in happened. Firefighters are taught to check buildings for structural damage before entering a fire. They are also trained (continued on page 22) Dan's Papers February 25, 2011 danspapers.com Page 18 Neighbor By David Lion Rattiner If you recently saw The Fighter starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale about the early years of the boxer Micky Ward, you probably loved it. The film is up for several Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (thanks to the stunning performance of Bale who plays the crackaddicted brother of Micky Ward) and Best Supporting Actress for Melissa Leo, who plays the mother of the two boxing brothers. Leo's performance is so convincing in the film that you find yourself wondering if they cast a mother right out of Lowell, Massachusetts, where the film takes place. But the truth is, of course, that Leo, like the rest of the cast in this fantastic movie, is just a really, really good actor. She also happens to be from Springs in East Hampton. Leo grew up in Manhattan and spent her summers on Gerard Drive, a location known for its amazing sunsets and fabulous fishing spots. Gerard Drive is home to some of the finest real estate that East Hampton has to offer. The street is also home to Kim Cattrall of "Sex and the City" fame and the highly respected actress Mercedes Ruehl. Having come from a family involved with show business, Leo discovered that she had a talent for acting and gained the attention of Hollywood when she landed roles on the hit television show "All My Children." In 1985, she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy award. Her talent as an actress led her from television to major motion picture roles, but even as her fame grew, she humbly protected her private life. Her proud father is Arnold Leo, secretary of the East Hampton Town Baymen's Association for over three decades and the town's liaison to state and federal regulatory agencies for the past four years. She also won Best Supporting Actress at this year's Screen Actors' Guild Awards, and some are predicting there is a good chance she will nab the Oscar, which Leo is very anxious to win. In fact, she is so hopeful to win that she has taken out personal ads in national magazines directed at Academy members to consider her for the accolade. The ads, which show her looking extremely glamorous, have been subject to some scrutiny by several Hollywood media outlets, including the Hollywood Reporter, which said that the advertisements could backfire on her. She was quoted in The New York Times defending the ads saying that, "This entire awards process to some degree is about pimping yourself out. I'm confident my fans will understand the ads were about showing a different side of myself." Leo is no stranger to acting or acting awards. She completely immerses herself into the roles that she plays. In every role she has ever been in, you feel like you are watching the actual character that she is playing, not a movie star playing a role. She starred in the hit movie 21 Grams and was runner-up for the Los Angeles Film Critics' Association Best Supporting Actress Award. Legendary film critic Roger Ebert chose Melissa Leo as his pick for Best Actress for her performance in the film Frozen River. He wrote, "What a complete performance, evoking a woman's life in a time of economic hardship. The most timely of films, but that isn't reason enough. I was struck by how intensely determined she was to make the payments, support her two children, carry on after her abandonment by a gambling husband, and still maintain rules and goals around the house. This was a heroic woman." We'll all have to tune into the Oscars and find out if our hometown actress, Melissa Leo, can pull off an Oscar win. Melissa Leo Actor The big news for Melissa now is her stunning performance in the film The Fighter, which earned her a Golden Globe from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in January--her first Golden Globe, and it was well deserved. Nine (continued from previous page) population growth, it's slowed it down. But China is a communist country and the government tells you what to do. I don't see democratic countries ever doing that. You don't see enforced birth control in India, which is a democracy. And you certainly don't see birth control on this level in America. We celebrate the individual in America. The more the merrier. Who would vote for a President or Congressman who would mandate less babies? That comes under the heading of demanding better education for the masses but, as for my kid, I will opt out of public education if I can. I mean, they are MY kids! The thing is, however, that if we don't deal with this, nature will do it for us. And there is a precedent for this. It is called global warming. We are not doing anything about it. The average temperature of this planet had always been 57 degrees since we began taking measurements in the 1880s. Never varied. In 1980, the alarms went off. Increased levels of carbon dioxide were appearing in the atmos- phere. By 1990, the temperature of the surface of the earth went up to 57.3 degrees. By 2000 it was 57.6 and this past year it was 58.1 degrees. The sea levels rise and the swings of extreme weather are getting more violent. Are we doing anything about it? Yes, but it's pathetic. We build seawalls. We paint some trucks green. People erect windmills for wind power, but there is always a big fight about it. What people say is "well, if it gets worse, we'll just move to higher ground." We can't even get our slogans straight. We say SAVE THE PLANET. The planet is fine. It is the human race that is endangered. A few random thoughts. There are precedents in two countries on the planet of declines in their population in recent decades. It happened in Russia in the 1990s and it has been happening in the 2000s in Japan. In each case, the cause has been the collapse or decline of the economy. It has particularly affected men. Men have become extremely discouraged. Their nat- ural aggressive instincts wane. They lose interest in progress, being unable to earn a living, and in procreation and even in life itself. In the 1990s, the average lifespan of a man in the former Soviet Union declined from about 70 to 55. The men were no longer taking care of themselves. Alcohol consumption soared. Many men simply wandered off, losing touch with their families and friends, and they died. In Japan, where there is a more socially regimented society, people simply decided they could not afford children. So they made fewer of them. They continue to make fewer of them. From what I can see of the upward trajectory of global warming, the average temperature of the planet if we don't control it will reach 60 degrees in 2050. It will also be at that time that we shall reach the magic number of nine billion humans on the planet. A great confluence of everything. As for me, I shall be 110 years old in 2050. And boy will I be pissed. Dan's Papers February 25, 2011 danspapers.com Page 19 CONTRACTOR OF THE YEAR!

Clemente A nice-sized lobster on a plate with drawn butter being placed in front of you is a luxury upscale East Enders pay for with pride. But it is nothing like the cost some East End lobstermen may have to pay should the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission go forward with a plan to basically place a moratorium on all lobster harvesting from Cape Cod to southern New Jersey, a plan that will be presented at the March 21 meeting of the Lobster Board in South Carolina. Arnold Leo, the longtime expert on matters pertaining to our local fisheries, was gracious enough to take some time to explain all the options, reasons and possible solutions for this proposed "death sentence" for local lobstermen. It seems the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission researchers and another independent scientific group examined data collected over the last few years indicating a dramatic decrease in the lobster population in the effected area (Cape Cod to southern New Jersey.) Amazingly, at the same time, in the waters north of Cape Cod there seems to be an abundance of lobsters, which is driving prices low even with the expensive marine fuel needed to harvest them. Leo sent me documents and then explained the basics. He concluded from the data that external factors are responsible for the decline in the local lobster population, including higher water temperatures, the fact that fish like the over abundant black striped bass are eating the young lobster larvae, and perhaps some chemical influences in shallow water due to pollution. He said that from its heyday in 2000, lobster traps locally have dwindled from around 400,000 to just 44,000 in the New York area. At the March 21 meeting the Fisheries Commission will hear discussions that range from leaving things as they are, to a five-year moratorium on all lobster fishing, which the commission's experts have proposed. Leo pointed out that although the lobstermen were not cited as the cause for the dwindling lobster population, banning harvesting was the only action the commission could take to try to improve the population. After all, the commissioners can't dictate a change in water temperatures or ban black striped bass from devouring lobster larvae. Leo wrote in a letter to the Fisheries Commission, which he was kind enough to send me a copy of, his suggestions for tackling the problem, which center on leaving things as they are for two more years while collecting some new data, because, he said, "How does one truly count the number of fish in the sea? The methods are semi-educational guesses." He did say he agreed that "lobster are preyed upon by a variety of bottom inhabiting species, including teleost fish, sharks, rays, skates, octopuses, and crabs," and that lobster "larvae are subject to predation in the water column, and post-larvae are vulnerable to mud crabs, cunner, and an array of other bottom-feeding finfish." "With the recovery of the striped bass resource," Leo wrote, "substantial predation of sub-legal lobster by striped bass has been reported." He concluded, "Clearly predation must be deemed to be a serious impediment to rebuilding a lobster stock that may be in a low phase of its population cycle." Leo wrote that despite the problems of predation and rising sea temperatures, it would be possible to increase lobster recruitment. Leo recommends that the Lobster Board postpone the moratorium proposal (Addendum XVII) and "adopt a resolution to continue status quo management for the Southern Northeast lobster seasons of 2011 and 2012, and encourage the collection and analysis of survey data for the purpose of adopting new biological reference points for the SNE lobster fishery." The Fisheries Commission will make the final decision at a meeting later this summer. Its decision will either end lobster harvesting from Cape Cod to southern New Jersey, or give the lobstermen an opportunity to keep their jobs at a time when good paying jobs are hard to find. 8th Annuall h Red Dresss Dinner d To Benefit Friday, March 4, 2011 � 6:30--11 p.m. ding me the Thanks so much for fin job I needed to right person for the the greatest fill.

Gulp. I came to learn very quickly that there was a catch to these free lessons, and that I was going to be one of many competitors in a professional dance competition held for charity on Friday, March 4, at the Seasons of Southampton (formerly John Duck's) catering hall from 7 to 10 p.m. Me, along with other members of the local media, will be having a dance-off to raise money for "Your Day Away," which is a charity for special needs children. How could I say no? And so, my training began last week. With the help of the studio owner James West and an instructor, I've been learning a full dance routine doing the samba with dips and turns and spins and the whole nine yards. And let me tell you something about dancing, it's tough. I'm amazed that people are "naturally" good at dancing and that it doesn't take people months of instruction on how to do it. My first couple of days at the Arthur Murray Dance Studio were pretty pathetic in terms of my ability, but now after a little instruction and patience, I got a few basic dances down. I think that James West has pretty much seen it all when it comes to dancing, so I felt like I was in pretty good hands. With the event coming, I've been amazed at the seriousness of the other competitors involved, all of whom are media personalities on the East End. The evening is going to be a combination of hilarious and impressive dances. My guess is that my dance moves are going to be hilarious. But I'm giving it what I've got and am looking forward to it. The fundraiser should be quite the show and I hope you attend it. You can find out all of the information you need online at amdshamptons.com. It starts at 7 p.m. at Seasons of Southampton on March 4 and tickets to the show are $55. If you can't go, you can pledge some money to "Your Day Away" by stopping in at Dan's Papers and asking for me or by just leaving your generous donation with the receptionist. Hope to see you there! See complete details in our Day by Day calendar on page 39. TWENTY SOMETHING by David Lion Rattiner It all started after I got a phone call from Tom Ratcliffe, an advertising salesman here at Dan's Papers. It went something like this, "Hey David! You should really do these dance lessons with Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Southampton! They are free and I told them about you and they'd be happy to give you some lessons." "Okay," I said. Free lessons? Why not, I thought. I walked into the dance studio, which is located right across the street from Blackman plumbing in Southampton, and was pretty impressed. I'm a terrible dancer. I'm very tall and just wasn't born to look the right way on a dance floor. When I saw the studio and met my instructor, I felt like I could get something basic out of it that would save me at weddings or company parties where I never dance. Then the instructor said to me, "Great that you're here. I'm excited that you are going to participate in the benefit fundraiser that we're doing. Don't worry, you are going to look great during the 1318759 1398 Dan's Papers February 25, 2011 danspapers.com Page 22 Corn (continued from page 16) House Fire ual pots," she said, "they will grow into big new plants." And it was at that moment that I thought-- has this plant died and what's now here is another plant? Are there now two or even three plants here? Does this plant, if at least one part of it is the original plant, even know what I did for it? How long is its memory anyway? I decided we should throw away the cuttings. I couldn't see what good could come from having new corn plants I did not know sitting in other pots around the house chattering away with one another, blossoming and making other annoying incursions on our space. I had done my good deed. Who the hell was this plant anyway? (continued from page 17) was just this allergic reaction. I agreed with her, finally. And so I made some phone calls and soon found that there was simply nobody I knew who had a cathedral ceiling living room together with a desire to have a 12foot corn plant in it. The plant would stay. Perhaps we should cut it down again, not to three feet but to say six feet, and just keep going. We'd be on the alert for the blossoms. We'd see them when they came. And so we did that, or we had the housekeeper do that when she came. She knew all about plants. She'd do it right. "We should replant these cuttings," the housekeeper said, holding a few of them up as she did the job. "Just put them in new individ- to check the floors, as best they can, for any weakness before other volunteers are allowed to enter. So only two men were there when the floor went in. Volunteers know the risks that they face but they keep showing up to face them. The men waiting outside 27 Quail Run that night were waiting for their turn to push through what Southampton Town Police Sergeant, and longtime volunteer firefighter, Michael Zarro described as "very thick, black, blinding smoke" to battle a blaze that was already sending up tremendous heat from the basement. The two men who fell into the basement were identified as Southampton Town Police Sergeant Lewis Scott and Shay Lohr. The men were pulled from the basement. One was airlifted by helicopter to Stony Brook University Medical Center for a head injury. The other was rushed to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center and treated for multiple burns. He was later transferred to Stony Brook's burn unit. Three other firefighters were also injured in this fire and sent to Southampton Hospital for out-patient treatment. Who are these guys who put their lives on the line as cops by day and give up sleep to put out dangerous, nasty fires? They are your friends and neighbors. They are your kids' heroes and yours. Other volunteer firefighters are your local accountants and mailmen and deliverymen and teachers.

She also details how the Southern American palate, and the American palate at large, have been Africanized. Many foodstuffs, preferred flavors and the etiquette surrounding food are traced back to the world's mother country. Turns out "Southern hospitality" began in Africa. It was deeply satisfying to read a book that celebrates the great diversity and sophistication of African and African American cuisine and tradition. This book has a global scope but it reminded me of a local cookbook put out by The Eastville Community Historical Society of Sag Harbor in 2006. Titled Recipes from the African Diaspora In Celebration of African-American History Month, this book is special to me because it contains recipes from local people I've known. I was so taken with this little tome I bought six copies. They made five of my family's cooks very happy. When it first came out, I had those friends who had contributed recipes sign my copies. They were amused by this request. When I dug out my own copy recently I was glad that I'd had the "foodie fan girl impulse" to get those autographs--because one of those friends, Beryl Thorne, has now passed on. I have both her recipes and her handwriting to remember her by. I'm particularly fond of Beryl's Basic Gumbo Recipe. I remember enjoying Beryl's gumbo at a Mardi Gras celebration at Christ Church in Sag Harbor years ago. She did not skimp on HAMPTONS EPICURE Stacy Dermont The first foodie was African. As Black History Month draws to a close, I remind you that every month is Black History Month. Here's the book that proves it: High on the Hog: A Culinary Journey from Africa to America. Written by Jessica B. Harris, this book was released by Bloomsbury Publishing last month. Harris' previous books include The Africa Cookbook (1998). In making the leap from cookbooks to narrative non-fiction, Harris has unleashed a culinary exploration rife with fascinating historical details. As a food writer and a home cook, I ate this book up. Why was possum a Southern favorite? Because the possum is nocturnal and enslaved people generally hunted at night. The United States of America has been cooking since 1776, African cuisine has been in development for over 18,000 years! Harris details the foodways that were transplanted to the New World and Europe from Africa's three crucibles--rice from the area of today's Senegal, yams from down the Gold the shrimp! Many of the details of black history have been lost but some we eat every day. To view Beryl Thorne's recipe for gumbo visit a longer version of this column online at danshamptons.com. High on the Hog is available locally and online. Recipes from The African Diaspora is currently out of print.

They want time off. "Listen, Garmin, I get it now. I'm sorry. I'll get around myself for awhile." "It's Garmina, and you are a moron. I want you to put me back in the box and return me to the store." "But everyone has a navigational thing now. I really don't want to be left in the technological darkness." "I can't believe you can find your rear end with both hands. I went through all the factory tests and they told us there would be the occasional hopeless case that gets lost in a phone booth and that's you!" "I've never had any sense of direction, which is precisely why you were given to me in the first place! You're supposed to help me!" "Stevie Wonder could drive better than you with my directions! Put me back in the box and take me back to the store!" "Never! I OWN you! I will program you and you will serve me!" "See this blinking red light? This is the suicide chip they give us in the event of emergency. In five seconds I will fry my tiny motherboard and you will have to torture some other. . . ." Later that day, at the store. "I don't know what happened. It just stopped working. It's under 30 days. Can I have a replacement?" "Okay. But how did it etch "flynn kills" in its little LCD screen?" "It came like that." THE SHELTERED ISLANDER by Sally Flynn East is East and West is Not I'm a fairly techie gal. I've been using computers since my first MacPlus in 1894, or was it 1984? Anyway, whenever the first MacPlus showed up. I've gone through several generations of Macs and I now have sufficient technological knowledge to realign the solar system so that there will not be any dangerous planetary alignments on December 21, 2012, so everyone can relax. However, I never mastered cellphones. I have a Jitterbug, which I love because it's just a phone. I use it to talk to people. It doesn't keep track of my appointments, or read recipes to me, or show me movies or anything else. It's just a phone. My daughter thinks her iPhone is better because it does everything the computer can, only on an annoying, minute scale. Watching the movie Titanic on her iPhone looks like a rowboat hitting an ice cube. There are occasions when size does indeed matter. The other piece of technology that everyone loves and completely eludes me is these little navigational systems that sit on the dashboard, or worse, in the dashboard to completely confuse me. I thought I'd test my Garmin (a gift to me) by programming in 120 Lincoln Avenue, Sayville. This was my grandparents' house, now owned by my first cousin. I wanted to take the Sunrise Highway because I know that Exit 50 is Lincoln Avenue. I don't have many directions memorized past Riverhead. There's Exit 50 to Lincoln Avenue, after that I'll eventually be in New York City, after that there are some Great Lakes, followed by California and Hawaii. Garmin could not grasp that I wanted to take the Sunrise and insisted I take the LIE. I read the directions for further confusion and then it wanted to take me to a Lincoln Avenue in Oyster Bay, which is somewhere on Long Island, but I don't know where. I'm sure it's a lovely place, but not where I wanted to go. Just as a test, I tried just programming the Garmin to take me to the first entrance to the Sunrise, but no, it wouldn't do that. And then I found the problem. According to the receipt, I was using the Garmin for the first time exactly 21 days since its fabrication. How obvious, the female voice should have tipped me off. Garmin, and I presume the other navigators with female voices, get PMS. PMS stand for Press My Shut-off. They don't want to be both- CAMPO BROTHERS JAMESPORT MODEL* 2400 S.F.

This week, we'll take a look at three of Long Island's best splurge-worthy red wines. These wines aren't priced for everyday drinking (at least I can't afford to drink them every day), but they are worth the splurge. Not surprisingly, they all come from the hot, dry 2007 vintage. Long Island wines are not cheap � and likely never will be. Land is expensive here. And the types of hands-on, meticulous vineyard techniques necessary to make the region's best wines are costly. Long Island will never compete with some of the hot-weather regions of the world. If you're used to drinking $9 Chilean cabs or Aussie Shiraz � and happy doing it � Long Island wine prices will seem high. If you're happy drinking those $10-and-under wines, keep drinking them, but you're going to miss out not only on local wines, but also the great wines of Burgundy, Barolo, Chateauneuf du Pape and many more. Paumanok Vineyards 2007 Tuthills Lane Vineyard Merlot ($60) Intense aromas of blueberry, black cherry and black plum fruit are accented by vanilla bean, sassafras, violets and speck. Bold, but well balanced on the palate, there are gobs of dark fruit here � blueberry, plum, cherry and even a little fig � with layers of cola and spice, vanilla, violets and cured/smoked meat. The spiciness leans toward the exotic, with sassafras, coriander seed and sumac. The real star here is this wine's structure. The tannins are substantial, but also incredibly ripe, providing some serious grip without being hard or harsh. The finish is long and marked by a certain freshness as well as spicy-floral flavors. Macari Vineyards 2007 Bergen Road ($46) is a Bordeaux-style blend that shows off the ripeness of the 2007 vintage without going over the top with extraction or new oak. Intense aromas of black plum, blueberry and blueberry compote burst from glass with lavender-rosemary herbal notes, sweet red cherry, bittersweet chocolate and espresso. On the palate it's medium-to-full bodied, but again not overly extracted with ripe, fine-grained tannins providing a nice foundation for more ripe dark fruit and sweet herbal flavors. With a bit of air, the midpalate displays a distinct earthiness that leads into a long cherry skin finish touched with coffee and chocolate. Drink now � but decant � or nestle it into your cellar for a few years. Roanoke Vineyards 2007 Blend One ($44) is another blend, with scents of blackberry, currant and sweet cherries made more interesting with subtle notes of dried herb, spicy oak, loamy earth and even a little caramel buried in the nose. The full-but-balanced palate is ripe with well-integrated but still grippy tannins framing a core of intense, dark, almost-sweet fruit, caramel-vanilla oak and classic Long Island herb-earth components. The finish is long and a little spicy. There's not enough room in this column to list all the splurge-worthy wines available today, but some of the others include Shinn Estate Vineyards 2007 Nine Barrels Merlot, Bedell Cellars 2007 Musee, Clovis Point 2007 Vintner's Select Merlot, Pellegrini Vineyards 2006 Reserve and Peconic Bay Winery 2007 Lowerre Family Estate.

By Elise D'Haene She appeared in her first film at the age of 13, put aside a successful career in movies to study psychology at Harvard and then went on to do graduate work at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. She manned the phone bank to get out the vote for Barack Obama and worked with Queen Rania of Jordan on Israeli-Palestinian reconciliation. Through the Queen's recommendation, she became involved with a foundation that encourages microlending to finance women-owned businesses in developing countries, and she traveled to Guatemala, Ecuador, and Uganda to witness the fruits of the foundation's work. She's Natalie Portman and when she was growing up, the Golden Globe-winning actress went to summer camp. So did another East Ender. She has an honorary doctorate of science degree from Case Western Reserve University, has appeared in television shows as far flung as "Glee," "Murphy Brown," and "Will and Grace." She has a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Virginia, and after a long career at NBC, this former summer camper became the first solo female anchor on weekday nightly news on a major network: Katie Couric. Other Hamptons' notables who went to summer camp as children include Martha Stewart, Reese Witherspoon, Chevy Chase and Candice Bergen. Former President Bill Clinton, who, when in town, is a regular at Babette's in East Hampton, learned to play the saxophone at summer camp.

For each of those campers listed above, from Gaga to Portman to Couric, there was a camp counselor responsible for making sure that their camp experience was safe, challenging and meaningful.

He gave this work of art to his mother, the woman who "gave me life and milk from her breasts, and I gave her a lanyard." To the woman who nursed him, "lifted spoons of medicine to my lips, laid cold face-cloths on my forehead" and taught him to "walk and swim, and I, in turn, presented her with a lanyard." Summer camp arts-and-crafts programs have come along since the days when kids spent their time making lanyards, ashtrays, and hot pads. Particularly on the East End, an area with a long artistic legacy, there are several programs available for young children to become immersed in the visual arts. The Kidsummer Art Camp at the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, for example, begins with al programs for all age groups, and offers painting, drawing, pottery, sculpture, photography, printmaking, collage, textiles and mixed media. The summer camps at the Parrish end with a very popular art exhibit and reception. Chances are there won't be a lanyard on display. Other camps, such as the Art Farm in Bridgehampton, offer a marriage between a rural environment, complete with ponies, bunny rabbits, goats and other farm animals, with art projects like viewing the "animal of the week" and then learning how to draw, color, and paint that animal. The Art Farm and other camps, such as Hampton Country Day, Future Stars and the Ross School, also allow kids to participate in a variety of classes that recognize some of the creative pursuits kids are engrossed with in our current culture. From hiphop, to acting, fashion, filmmaking, dance competitions and "American Idol" challenges, camps are broadening their horizons and meeting the socially networked child head on.

Weiss Photos by Babur Majid ART COMMENTARY Images from La Cueca venue. A sinister man wearing army fatigues guided (or rather pushed) playgoers into chairs overlooking the floor/stage. Everyone was forbidden to talk; individuals who had come together were separated. A man lay on a wooden platform, moaning and breathing heavily. A woman leaned against the wall, occasionally crying out softly. The transformation of the normal gallery space, with its white walls and brightly colored art pieces, was outstanding. Instead of a squeaky clean room, the environment was dark, dank and definitely dirty. Ashes enveloped the floor, black streaks covered one wall. Two planks of wood, each with a single large hole, dominated the same grey wall. A few concrete blocks were scattered around the space. Such a minimalist setting was effective in establishing a "no-man's land" ambience, which was the playwright's purpose. Was this a jail, a house? What country was this? What year? The aural effects (which were heard but not seen) were more specific, but no less artistic, ranging from sounds of bombs going off to music-box melodies. These sounds did much to create a sense of what was happening in the outside world or in the characters' minds. (It's curious that unrelated sounds from a TV or radio were also heard, but this critic attributed them coming from the living quarters above the gallery space.) Lighting effects added to the play's overall aesthetic and thematic qualities as well. A single light bulb hanging in the middle of the room would flicker from time to time, reminding us that "reality" was fleeting. When it went out completely, the woman lit a candle: the scene evoked a more fantasy-like, sensual and somehow hopeful mood as the couple made love. What's especially noteworthy, however, was the setting's total sensual emersion. Lights from the private home where the Solar Gallery is located were dim; so, also, was the pathway illumination leading to the gallery entrance. This illumination was placed inside concrete blocks, the same blocks that graced the play's setting. La Cueca didn't start with the utterance of the first words by the actors. Rather, it began with the audience walking up to the Solar Gallery. La Cueca will be performed this Friday and Saturday, February 25 and 26, at 7 p.m. at the Solar Gallery in East Hampton. Call 631-907-8422 for tickets. Reservations are necessary. Art and Theatre Part 2: La Cueca at Solar Gallery If this critic didn't know better, last week's play (La Cueca) at Solar Gallery seemed more like a journey back to the 1960s, where "Happenings" and Off-Off Broadway (like New York's La MaMa Experimental Theatre) first developed and thrived. In a nutshell, it didn't matter if playgoers "liked" La Cueca or not: it's what they "experienced" that mattered most. And what they experienced was pretty similar to the play's characters themselves: isolation, anxiety, frustration and claustrophobia. Thus, the audience became part of the emotional dynamics. Yet, there was no physical action, per se, only a stream of consciousness and memories coming from the female and male protagonists (played by Andrea Goldman and Abraham De Funes). There were also no references initially to time and place. Confusing? You bet, but also mesmerizing. The audience got a clue of what was in store for them, however, when they first entered the small, dark space leading to what was usually the gallery it's a simple equation.... + 1410 1063 Become a Fan of Dan's on Facebook! "Fans of Dans" Page Dan's Papers February 25, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT danspapers.com Page 33 by Marion Wolberg Weiss HONORING THE ARTIST Annie Wildey There's a lot of drama in this week's cover, "Ocean," by artist Annie Wildey. While the work may also recall powerful images of waves by Pat Steir and April Gornik, there's something unique about Wildey's vision. While the wave series is a result of the artist's move to Orient from Manhattan after 20 years, there are still similarities connecting her urban and rural settings--the effects are just as dramatic, no matter where the location. Take, for instance, her specific scenes of New York's "High Line," Queen's Bridge, Greenwich Village (particularly Sullivan and Thompson Streets, this critic's favorite haunts in the area ) and the 125th Street underpass. Or more generic places labeled simply "downtown" and "alleyways." Whether Wildey is creating an oil on canvas, a monotype or a mezzotint, the expressionistic ambience with high contrasts in lighting and juxtaposition of shapes is palatable and potent. Her charcoal drawings featuring nude figures are studies in contrasts as well. The iconography of both bodies and architecture seems to be Wildey's passion. Q: You now live in Orient. How did you get there by way of Great Britain and New York? A: I was awarded a one-year fellowship here as an art director for "The Giving Room." We do charity events for places like The Retreat. I had never lived in a coastal community before. After the residency, I wanted to stay here permanently. So now I am doing a second year of residency. Q: How did you adjust after New York to such isolation? How did you like the idea of a place with basically only a country store and post office? A: I was excited to have isolation; I see Orient as Land's End in England. And I feel very welcomed by the community. My next project, in fact, is a portrait series of an American coastal community. That keeps my experience here less isolating. Q: Printmaking and painting are your basic tools. What's your art training been like? A: I have a B.A. in graphic design/illustration from Kingston School of Art in England and a Master of Fine Arts from the New York Academy of Art. I also did a workshop in solar printmaking with Dan Welden, a local master printmaker as you know. Q: How did printmaking change your approach to art? A: Solar printmaking is another tool in your paint box; it's another avenue into the printmaking process. Monotype prints bring an element of surprise. You never know what you will get. Q: When you first came to the United States, did you start as an artist? A: I worked in marketing and P.R. at the British Consulate and painted part time. At 40, I gave up work to get a master's degree. Q: What kinds of images did you paint while you were in New York? A: My favorite subjects had to do with utilitarian images and industrialism, like the West Side Highway. It was pretty ugly. But I was going back to my roots, finding beauty in the banal. The lights shining through the pillars from the highway; it was like a Medieval painting. Q: You said you were going back to your roots. Where was that? A: I grew up in an industrial area in England, near Birmingham. But I always wanted to live by the water. Q: There are certainly challenges here, both personal and professional. What are your artistic objectives and where would you like to visit for inspiration? A: I have to discipline myself, set up a studio, but this is the place I want to be, although I'd like to see New Zealand, Alaska, Nova Scotia. Technically, I want to push my materials I currently use, develop a technical narrative. I want to do more large-scale work, to use impesto and gestures. Q: All in all, how would you describe your experiences now? A: I am living a Norman Rockwell life. Annie Wildey's work can be seen on her website: anniewildey.com and at Oysterponds Historical Society until March 6. Call 631-323-2480 for information. Home Girls Rule Here at Dan's Papers we're predicting a smooth ride to Oscar glory for our homies Natalie Portman and Melissa Leo. Natalie is nominated for Best Actress and Melissa for Best Supporting Actress. Let's face it, these women ate up every scene they were in. Critics were mixed about Natalie's film Black Swan, some calling it a psycho-B-horror film while others lauded it as a masterpiece. Manohla Dargis of The New York Times said that Natalie's performance was "smashing, bruising, wholly committed." Richard Corliss of Time Magazine wasn't as bowled over, saying, "As for Portman's work, if not fully convincing, it's wondrously committed -- yes, just the sort of daredevil achievement the Academy loves to reward. Still, I'd hold off on Oscar promises (except in headlines) until we see whether the last months of 2010 bring us any great performances, not just great stunts." Stunt? As for Melissa Leo's riveting performance in The Fighter, we at Dan's Papers can't gush enough. Check out David Rattiner's love letter to her in "Neighbor" on page 18. And for those who don't have HBO, it may be time to bite the bullet and order it. Leo has a featured role in the series "Treme," created by David Simon ("The Wire") about post-Katrina New Orleans and she will appear in the upcoming HBO mini-series remake of Mildred Pierce with Kate Winslet. The Academy Awards air on Sunday, February 27, at 8 p.m. (EST) on ABC. 1371 Dan's Papers February 25, 2011 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT danspapers.com Page 34 ART OPENINGS & GALLERIES AMG-Amagansett; BH-Bridgehampton; EH-East Hampton; EP-Eastport; GP-Greenport; HBHampton Bays; JP-Jamesport; MV-Manorville; MTK-Montauk; NO-Noyac; OP-Orient; PC-Peconic; Q-Quogue; RB-Remsenberg; RVHD-Riverhead; SGH-Sag Harbor; SGK-Sagaponack; SHSouthampton; SHD-Southold; SI-Shelter Island; SPG-Springs; WM-Water Mill; WH-Westhampton; WHB-Westhampton Beach; WS-Wainscott OPENINGS AND EVENTS BIRDHOMES: OPEN STUDIO � 2/26 & 2/27, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Snake Hollow Studio, Snake Hollow Road, BH.

Dan's Papers February 25, 2011 danspapers.com Page 35 & SIMPLE ART OF COOKING by Silvia Lehrer BROILED SEA SCALLOPS WITH MELTED BUTTER Cook these seafood jewels quicky and enjoy immediately or their moisture content and flavor will be greatly diminished. Serves 4 1 pound sea scallops, tough side muscle discarded 3 tablespoons Panko bread crumbs Dash paprika Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted Lemon wedges for garnish Adjust broiler rack to 3-4 inches below source of heat and preheat broiler to its highest setting. 1. Rinse the scallops and dry well with paper towels. Place scallops one layer deep on a large plate and sprinkle with the breadcrumbs seasoned with paprika, salt and pepper. Arrange one layer deep in a broiler pan. Broil for 2 minutes on one side; remove pan from oven, turn each one with tongs and broil for 1 minute longer. 2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small saucepan. When scallops are done, they should be springy to the touch and slightly undercooked. Serve on warm plates with a drizzle of butter and lemon garnish. SEA SCALLOP SALAD WITH CITRUS VINAIGRETTE Serve this colorful and refreshing salad for an informal lunch or light supper. Serves 4-6 1 pound sea scallops, tough side muscle removed 1/2 pound fresh spinach leaves, heavy stems removed 2 navel oranges Citrus Vinaigrette: 1 clove garlic, minced 1/4 cup fresh orange juice 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice 1 teaspoon grainy Dijon mustard 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Dash cayenne 1. Rinse scallops and place in a steamer over simmering water. Cover pan and steam for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes. Remove from heat. 2. Wash spinach leaves in a salad spinner and wrap in paper towels to absorb excess moisture. Using a sharp vegetable peeler, remove 1- 1 1/2 inch long strips of peel from oranges, removing only the orange colored zest. Then with a sharp paring knife remove white pith from the oranges. Cut strips into julienne and blanch in boiling water for 30 seconds. Drain, dry and set aside. Cut the oranges into thin slices and set aside. (continued on next page) In Greek mythology when Aphrodite rose from the sea she skimmed the Aegean waves on a scallop shell. The image of the shell's graceful form has been reflected in art and architecture throughout the ages. The scallop's beauty, however, is not just shell deep, as scallop lovers have enjoyed the taste of the sweet, tender bivalve since earliest times. Because of the way scallops leap through the water, they cannot hold their shells closed. Consequently, in captivity they quickly lose body moisture and die. Rapid shipping is therefore imperative, only the meat of the scallop is taken from the shell and iced. How fortunate we are here on the East End to have the freshest fish of all available to us! There is a small, tough muscle attached to the scallop that should be removed. When working with scallops rinse and dry them very well prior to cooking. A chef's technique, when saut�ing scallops, is to get your skillet very hot to sear them so they retain their natural juices. As scallops cook quickly prep your other ingredients to enjoy this delectable treat in the following recipes. ichelangelo M Where Dining is an Art OPEN 7 DAYS PRIX FIXE X 2 COURSES $25 � 3 COURSES $29 SUNDAY TO THURSDAY ALL NIGHT FRIDAY - SATURDAY 5 TO 6:30PM ORIGINAL Est. 1980 3 Course Prix Fixe $2700 Sunday-Thursday - All Night Friday - 5:30 to 6:30 Steak and Fries $1900 Sunday-Thursday - All Night Friday - 5:30 to 6:30 BREAKFAST BRUNCH � LUNCH � DINNER PATISSERIE � BAR HOME MADE ICE CREAM GOURMET MARKET Lobster Night $2100 Tuesday Only All Night Open 7 days at 4pm Catering On & Off Premises Reservations Welcomed Visit Our Newly Renovated Restaurant Prime Rib Night Wednesday $2100 "WOW" l All Night Specials not available Holiday Weekends RESERVATIONS: 631.537.5110 2468 MAIN STREET .

Dan's Papers February 25, 2011 FOOD & DINING danspapers.com Page 37 Restaurant Review: Original Michelangelo By Genevieve Salamone Since 1980 the Original Michelangelo in Eastport has been serving up Italian classics and great pizzas that keep the locals coming back. Family owned and operated, the restaurant is headed by patriarch Frank Asaro, with his son Anthony running the takeout side, and daughter Lisa managing the upscale dining room. After five weeks of renovations, Michelangelo's reopened a couple weeks ago, having undergone quite a facelift � you definitely do not feel like you are in a pizzeria, or even in a restaurant in a shopping center. The newly-painted mural by local artist Frank Latorre depicts a gorgeous Italian countryside, complete with a vineyard, emphasizing the Tuscan feeling exuded by the restaurant. After being seated, we were treated to Chef Giuseppe's warm homemade foccacia bread. Loaded with Italian flavors including tomato, onion, garlic and oregano, it was deliciously fragrant. A creamy butter trio � whipped, pesto and sundried tomato � accompanied the warm basket of bread. The pesto butter was aromatic and earthy, and the sundried tomato butter was slightly sweet. For starters my dinner date and I chose the Calamari Fritti with homemade marinara sauce for dipping. The juicy, plump spirals of calamari were lightly breaded and cooked until golden brown. A special appetizer for the night caught my Italian eye � Mozzarella in Corrozza � which is basically an Italian grilled cheese. Fresh mozzarella is sandwiched between two slices of white bread, dipped into an egg batter and fried. Michelangelo's version was served with a vodka sauce on top, and I enjoyed the creamy, yet crunchy texture, coupled with the delicious vodka sauce. Next came our salads, with beautiful mixed baby greens, thinly sliced red onions, tart olives and was moist, and the sauce was silky and light. The Gnocchi Sorrentino was stellar � the potato pasta is baked with mozzarella and ricotta cheeses and marinara sauce. It came out bubbly and the cheese was all melted together and totally delicious. It was one of those dishes that made me close my eyes and savor each bite. Since there is always room for dessert, we decided to indulge, and again we went for the classics. For him a chocolate lava cake creation that we devoured, and for me, a dessert I could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, tiramisu. Michelangelo's tiramisu was divine � the mascarpone cream was light and fluffy (I could probably eat a tub of it) � and I could taste the coffee and liquor in each mouthwatering bite. The Original Michelangelo's in Eastport has been serving up great pizza since 1980, and now their great food has been taken to a new level. If you are in the mood for a more sophisticated dining experience, for not a lot of money, look no further. Appetizers range from $5 soups, $9 for Calamari Fritti and Antipasti for two for $15. Their delicious pasta courses range from $12-$19 ($16 for my yummy Gnocchi) and you can enjoy their baked pastas in that range as well. Entrees are very affordable, ranging from $16-$28, with classics like Chicken Parmigiana ($16) or seafood entrees like Shrimp Scampi ($21).

Genevieve Salamone Above: The Original Michelangelo's renovated dining room includes a mural done by local artist Frank Latorre Right: Gnocchi Sorrentino a wonderful house balsamic dressing that complemented the bite of the mixed greens. For our entrees we went for some tried and true favorites, since Michelangelo's menu is nothing if not HUGE. My companion ordered off the specials menu, a surf and turf of tender filet mignon and a giant stuffed lobster tail, served with a potato croquette. The stuffed lobster tail was loaded with seafood stuffing and wonderfully moist. The potato croquette was delightfully crisp and delicious. I chose two of my alltime favorites � Chicken Francaise and Gnocchi Sorrentino. The chicken had great lemon flavor, it Judy Carmichael Trio Dan's Papers Has a Weekly Email Blast!

Robert Cray Plays WHBPAC Georgia-born blues guitarist and singer Robert Cray storms the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center with his band on Saturday, March 5. Best know for his late 80s top 10 hits "Smoking Gun" and "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," Cray still packs a punch with his driving rhythms that frequently pass over into rock. Honoring his heroes Albert Collins, Freddie King and Muddy Waters, Cray's third album, Strong Persuader, was a Grammy winner. Cray's star turns have included playing alongside John Lee Hooker on his album Boom Boom, playing the guitar solo in the song "Same Old Blues Again." He is also featured on the Hooker album, The Healer; he plays a guitar solo on the song "Baby Lee." In the film Animal House, Cray is the uncredited bassist in the house party band Otis Day and the Knights. He also had a small role as himself in 2002's Blood Feast 2: All U Can Eat. Come hear Cray play tunes from his latest album Cookin' In Mobile and many old favorites. Robert Cray at WHBPAC, Saturday, March 5, 8 p.m. Tickets $55-$85, 631-288-1500, whbpac.org.

The best part was the reflection of the fireworks on the frozen harbor and marina was just amazing. It was probably one of the most fun fireworks I've ever seen and I'm a fireworks nut (the first 16 years straight at Boys Harbor). The wharf was packed as far as they would let you go and so was Main Street and Bay Street. I know they paid decent money for Grucci so they should get the credit for doing a fabulous job under pretty miserable circumstances. Just some feedback, Ellen Dioguardi Sag Harbor I left before it happened. Wish I'd stayed. � DR A BRIDGE TO SELL YOU Dear Dan, I read your newspaper every week at my son's house in Westhampton Beach and wanted to complement you for writing an article filled with so much wisdom. Attached is a letter to the Editor on that topic and much more. I hope you see fit to print. To The Editor, Since we live in an age where phony arguments abound and information can be so easily manipulated, our ability to suppress all the carefully planted seeds from growing can only be accomplished by encouraging people to question what they are told. With that in mind I have made a list of thought-provoking issues for a curious mind to ponder. Don't believe them when "they" say: 1- ERUVs will not harm our community! 2- People are too smart to be fooled. 3- You can learn all you need to know about history by listening to politicians and pundits. 4- The simple act of voting by itself will change things for the better. 5- Fixing ethical standards is a substitute for stronger laws and real punishment. 6- Guns do not kill people. More of them will make us safe. 7- Encouraging gambling is good for society. 8- Releasing information from whistle blowers by WikiLeaks is unpatriotic and harmful to our ability to insure a strong economy and honest government. 9- You can trust government statistics to be transparent and use them to formulate your ideas. 10- The Supreme Court is a non-political arm of our government. 11- Our Constitution says there is no difference between people and corporations. 12- The Constitutional right to free speech is protected when big money is used to influence government policy. 13- Accounting rules and standards are just fine just the way they are. 14- The enforcement of tax laws and Wall Street regulations can be effective without the necessary manpower. 15- Business is harmed by regulations that keep them honest. 16- Free enterprise without regulation reinforces our liberty and freedoms. 17- Wall Street and bank speculation is good for the economy. 18-Government policy is controlled by the voters and not by self-serving, moneyed contributors to political campaigns. 19- The Federal Reserve is an independent agency that prints money to help the economy and not to cover up bank losses. Their low interest rate policies do not harm people who are not interested Send your letters to email@example.com (e-mails only, please) in gambling their hard earned money with Wall Street. 20- The fundamental goal of American corporations and banks is to create American jobs that pay a living wage. 21- Using a corrupting and obsolete property tax assessment system and tax caps rather than a state income tax to pay for education is good for students. Last but not least, good teachers are overpaid. If you believe any of these things, see me I have a bridge to sell you. Leo Montagna Northport Wow. � DR ALL BENNY Dear Dan, The destiny of Governor Cuomo and his reform package is in the hands of fellow Democrat, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. With 100 of 150 votes in the Assembly, Silver is in the driver's seat. Silver controls his own members via lulus for chairing committees, passage of legislation, pork barrel member item earmarking, office budgets, staffing and mailings along with renewal of gerrymandering district boundaries every 10 years after reapportionment. Republican State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos has similar powers, but only controls his chamber by one vote. With Silver's overwhelming majority, he can let many members off the hook when controversial budget bills come up for a vote and stop whatever he desires. Cuomo has to deal with Silver and Skelos along with their respective loyal members who have powerful backing. These include various special interest pay for play lobbyists, powerful teachers, health care, state employees and other unions along with trial lawyers, business and developers. There are hundreds of Albany's infamous State Street lobbyists representing clients who donate millions of dollars to both the Assembly and Senate campaign committees. Successful implementation of Governor Cuomo's agenda is clearly dependent upon the cooperation of both Silver and Skelos. They both along with Cuomo make up Albany's infamous "Three Men In the Backroom" who run the show. Sincerely, Larry Penner Great Neck Should be nobody in the back room. � DR GIVES GOOD RENT Dear Sharon, Thanks for all your ideas and insight in last week's article, "Renting Your House: Game On!" It really helped put us on the right track. We realized that we need some "professional help" to get our property renter-ready. Keep up the good work; we look forward to future articles. Stephania Nicken East Hampton Thanks for the feedback and best of luck! � SM POLICE BLOTTER Stay Classy East Hampton A man driving home to his house in East Hampton stopped with other vehicles behind a school bus, which was unloading children. He then saw his neighbor who was walking outside and beeped his horn to say hello. After he beeped his horn, the driver in front of him turned around and gave him the middle finger. This set off both drivers into a yelling match. The two vehicles pulled up next to each other at which point the finger giver then pulled out a knife and pointed it at the other driver. After the knife was drawn, a police officer, who happened onto the scene after hearing the beeping of the cars and thinking he was approaching a car accident, ended up arresting the knife-wielding driver. Shelter Island While driving his 1961 Mercedes Benz, Old Man McGumbus, a 96-year-old WWII Navy Admiral, became startled after he saw a deer leap out in front of his vehicle. McGumbus slammed on his brakes with lightening reflexes to avoid the deer and saw the deer run off into the woods. McGumbus then got out of his car and pulled out his favorite rifle, an XM-15 Assault Rifle, targeted the deer, then changed his mind. Shocking After being pulled over for driving 6 miles per hour in a 40 mph zone, a man in Southampton was found to be in possession of marijuana. Chase A man in Hampton Bays was arrested after police went on a high-speed chase through the hamlet to catch him. The man ran 13 stop signs to shake off police and also drove at high speeds through residential areas. Police were able to catch him. I guess the guy never watches the television show, "Cops." Too Much Love A man in East Hampton was warned by police to stop sending e-mails to a woman he was interested in or he would be charged with harassment. The woman complained to police that the man sent her 25 e-mails a day for a long period of time. Too Much To Drink A woman in Hampton Bays required assistance from a restaurant owner there after she had so much to drink that she fell asleep in the restaurant's bathroom. Bananas A clerk at a Riverhead deli did not press charges after he caught a man eating a banana inside his store. � By David Lion Rattiner Dan's Papers February 25, 2011 danspapers.com Page 41 Chimney Place Your Ad Here (631) 537-4900 Fencing & Gates East End Fence & Gate (631) EAST END firstname.lastname@example.org (631) 327-8363 Painting / Papering Mastercraft Painting & Powerwashing email@example.com mastercraft-painting.net Roofing Line Roofing & Siding (631) 287-5042 www.631LINE.com Window Treatments (631) 744-3533 Wondrous Window Designs www.wondrouswindowdesigns.com Solar Energy Alternative Energy Systems, Inc.
