And there may be more. His name is Angel Palencia, 24, formerly of Guatemala, and he went about it in a casual way, which was designed to not get him caught. But then, in trying to fence the art, he did a really stupid thing and did get caught. Palencia worked for various contractors in this community. He would do carpentry or other work at some of the estates during the winter and during his workday would quietly note the paintings on the walls. The houses, he said, were pretty much open to the workmen during the week and in this way without breaking any windows, he would just walk right in on rainy days when the carpenters were not there and take down paintings. He did this in East Hampton, Southampton, Shelter Island and Southold. How he got caught was by selling a painting by Daniel Ridgeway-Knight he'd taken off the wall of a house on Lily Pond Lane in East Hampton to an art dealer in Mineola for $1,500 cash. The painting had a sticker on the back saying it had "You don't pay $1,500 for a $140,000 work of art without knowing something is wrong." come from the Wallace Art Gallery in East Hampton. Palencia had not thought to take it off. A few weeks later, the art dealer displayed the painting on his website for $140,000, with accompanying photos showing the front and the back of the painting. A few days after that, Terry Wallace of the Wallace Gallery got a call from an auctioneer in St. Petersburg, Florida, who was a friend of his. Did Wallace know that a Ridgeway-Knight work with his sticker on the back was now on the market? "Let me guess what that painting is," Wallace said. "It's either a painting of a woman sitting in a chair reading a book in a vineyard, or it's a woman holding an orange." "It's the one in the vineyard," the auctioneer said. Wallace said he had sold the painting to a Richard Parkoff who lived on Lily Pond Lane. He said it must have been stolen and they should call the police. They did. Police subsequently arrested Palencia at his home in Medford, and in searching the place found all sorts of other paintings tucked away. All were backtracked through the histories that art dealers keep, back to where they had been hanging on various walls around the globe, or in this case, in the Hamptons and on the North Fork. They say that they think various other homeowners are going to discover that paintings on their walls were lifted over the winter. They look forward to having them call in. And they also think that Palencia must have not been working alone, so extensive was his collection. I ran into Terry Wallace yesterday on the sidewalk in front of Starbucks in East Hampton, and he told me of his involvement and that the police might want to talk to that dealer in Mineola. "You don't pay $1,500 for a $140,000 work of art without knowing something is wrong," he said. We reminisced about some of the art heists and other matters relating to valuable artworks in the Hamptons that have made for pretty spectac(continued on page 18) Dan's Papers May 6, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 14 Keep your pet Safe at Home� #1 Company in pet containment Family-owned since 1988 Indoor & outdoor solutions Great for cats too!

We hadn't come out just to see what it was like. My dad had bought White's Drugstore in Montauk and, earlier, on his own, had come out and bought a house in the community. We were coming out here to live. I was absolutely fascinated by what I saw out here at that time. It was completely unlike the suburb where I grew up. We passed through all these beautiful old New Englandstyle villages to get way out here, and then I will never forget this, we passed along Main Street, East Hampton. This was a beautiful, broad boulevard back then, just as it is today. But looking up from the backseat of my dad's convertible on that beautiful sunny day in July of 1956, I watched as we moved slowly under a shady tunnel of trees that formed a canopy of branches and leaves arching over the road from both sides, meeting in the middle nearly 60 feet up--and this continued on for the better part of a mile! --until we were down at the windmill at the eastern end of town and out again into the sunshine and on our way to Amagansett and Montauk. I didn't know what this passageway was at the time, but soon, drawn back to it, I learned that this tunnel consisted of over 100 mighty elm trees, some of which had been planted there by an outfit called the Ladies Village Improvement Society right after the great Hurricane of 1938, 18 years before. (continued on page 20) TALENTED, SUCCESSFUL MAN LEAVING THE AREA By Dan Rattiner One of this community's richest and most flamboyant characters is leaving town and moving, I'm told, to Tuscany, to get away from America. It is Jerry Della Femina, a man who you either love or hate, but who won't hesitate to tell you what he thinks. What he thinks right now is that Barack Obama is going to raise his taxes and he can't have that. He is selling his ad agency in Manhattan, his oceanfront mansion, his restaurant and his weekly newspaper here in East Hampton and he is out of here. His wealth, he says, will now be entirely in gold and silver. It will be safe there. Meanwhile, America is going down the toilet. I met Della Femina for the first time at a party at what was then Wings Point Restaurant on Three Mile Harbor, given to honor the greatest living advertising legends. I do not recall everybody who was there, but I think Steve Frankfurt was, and I think David Ogilvy was. Among them was Jerry Della Femina--a man with a twinkle in his eye and a shaved head who I thought was as clever and funny as any of them. I learned he had recently bought a home in East Hampton. I struck up a friendship with him. And a few years later, I interviewed him as a "Who's Here" for Dan's Papers. Born and raised Italian in a largely Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, Della Femina graduated from high school with what he told me were the lowest grades in the entire history of the school. He was a prankster and a class comedian and after graduation he went to Brooklyn College for a bit, but then left and got a wide variety of menial jobs, most of which consisted of carrying things. He got a job at Macy's. He got a job for the Mercury Messenger Service. Once, with Mercury, he got a regular twice-a-week job delivering two 20-pound satchels each containing 20,000 checks from a bank at 11 West 42nd Street to 10 Exchange Place. It impressed him. Then one day he delivered a package to a Madison Avenue ad agency. Here he found men with their feet up on their desks, their hands behind their heads staring off into space. "What do they do?" he asked someone. (continued on page 22) Dan's Papers May 6, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 18 Art (continued from page 13) ular stories over the years. Back in the 1940s and 1950s, Jackson Pollock famously traded some of his paintings for food and provisions at the Miller General Store in Springs just down the street from where he lived. Dan Miller put his kids through college with those paintings 10 years later, selling them for tens of thousands of dollars, which he later said he regretted because now they were worth millions. In 1989, the great mansion owned by art dealer Andrew Crispo on Gin Lane in Southampton blew up with a ferocious explosion one June evening. Crispo was not home at the time--he was in New York City at his gallery--but in Southampton, millions of dollars of artwork he'd had on his walls were gone in an instant. The fire department declared the explosion to have been caused by a gas leak and the lighting company subsequently settled with Crispo for $6 million. But that was not the end of it. Crispo, by this time, had just completed a prison term for having evaded $4 million in taxes. He had told the government he had spent the profits he had made from earlier sales to buy a whole lot of new paintings that he hoped to sell sometime in the future, so thus he hadn't made any profit yet and so owed no tax. But the government was able to prove there were no such paintings purchased. He'd made the transactions up, and so got convicted of tax fraud. That same year, Crispo was at least peripherally involved in a murder. At his estate in Upstate New York, an assistant of his was accused and convicted of shooting a male Visit our state of the art 15,000 square foot factory to see for yourself the quality, craftsmanship and experience that goes into every one of our award winning awning structures.

The police dug him up. The assistant said Crispo made him do it. But Crispo was never charged. After the explosion, Southampton Village Police came by with shovels and began digging around on Crispo's property to see what they could come up with. Perhaps another body? They came up empty handed. Then there was the amazing art heist four years ago, which involved the burning down of a big mansion in Quiogue. The 11,000-square-foot house was owned by Jerry W. Levin, a prominent CEO who had guided Sharper Image, Revlon and Coleman Camping. Levin was not at home when the fire started. But as it turned out, the caretaker, a guy named Pat Padden, was there, but he got out unhurt. Lost in the blaze were more than half a million dollars in paintings by such people as Larry Rivers, Jean DuBuffet and Jean Metzinger. Sometime later, a painting called "Woman with Basket" by Jean Metzinger was offered up to the owner of the Michelle Rosenfeld Gallery in Manhattan. By coincidence, the Rosenfeld Gallery was working with the insurance company to document the value of the paintings that had gone up in flames in Quiogue, because the Rosenfeld Gallery had sold some of them, including the Metzinger, to Jerry W. Levin. It turned out the paintings had not gone up in flames at all. Padden and two co-defendents were charged on multiple counts, including theft and conspiracy, and Padden was also charged with setting the house on fire to cover his tracks. But Terry Wallace, there in front of Starbucks, had something else he wanted to talk to me about. "Have you ever heard of Cappy Amundsen?" he asked me. I told him I had. He was a painter in Sag Harbor who for many years lived in a house with show windows in front where he displayed his work. This was on the corner of Madison Street and Jermain Avenue. Cappy is gone, but the house and gallery space is still there today. "What happened to Cappy?" I asked. "He lived to be 90," Wallace told me. "Passed away in 2001. I'm writing a book about his life. And we are mounting an exhibit of some of his work at the Whaling Museum beginning on Memorial Day." Amundsen, according to Wallace, painted more than 5,000 works of art in his long career. He moved to Sag Harbor in 1946 at the age of 35 and by the time of his death just about everybody in town had a painting he'd made on their living room walls. That's how Cappy made his living, selling scenes of Sag Harbor and other places. "The interesting thing," Wallace told me, "was that Amundsen, who really was a fine painter, didn't care two hoots about establishing any kind of reputation. He made sure he couldn't get a reputation. He signed his paintings with at least a dozen different names that he made up. His paintings are signed with names like J. J. Enwright, W. Huges, Sven Sagg, J. C. Bennett, J. C. Bonac, John Dunne, H. Nansen, the list goes on and on." "So how do you know they are by him?"

They had crashed down, and the Ladies Village Improvement Society (L.V.I.S.) had overseen their removal and then with a great assist from the wealthy summer community who mourned these great treasures, had been replanted anew--with new ones, fully grown, of the same species that had been there before. It was as if the hurricane had never happened. In the 1950s, `60s and `70s, the trees of this replacement stand creating this unbelievable tunnel of foliage were the pride of, well, it seemed to me, the entire United States. I hadn't seen much in my life by that time. Leaving from New Jersey, we spent a week in Cape Cod one summer. We drove to Florida another time for two weeks in the winter. Nothing compared to this tunnel of trees. In the mid-1960s, I started the second edition of this newspaper in East Hampton--the first had been in Montauk--and went to the L.V.I.S. Fair at the Mulford Farm on Main Street one summer day to be told by one of the volunteer ladies of that organization that East Hampton that year had been voted the most beautiful village in the United States. We were standing in the shadows of the elms when she told me that. I had no reason to doubt her. During that era, I would shut down Dan's Papers in the wintertime--almost all com- merce shut down in the winter then--and go somewhere else to live. I was curious about the world. I spent four months living in Hawaii one year, in Guatemala another, in the Canary Islands another. In the fall of 1973, I took my wife and two-year-old daughter to live in a community in the South of France that people had told me was the only other village I could find that had a stand of trees similar to what we had in East Hampton. It was, and is, Aix en Provence, and the main boulevard of the town, called the Cours Mirabeau, was bordered by great stands of plane trees--though none as tall and majestic as our elms. Of course, in Aix they did have elaborate fountains in the center of each end of the Cours spraying water high into the air. It's France! But still, I never felt it matched what we had here. An absolutely terrible thing happened to our elms in the late 1970s and 1980s. They came down with Dutch Elm Disease, and one by one, landscaping trucks came through, bearing signs on the sides as I recall that read SAVING EAST HAMPTON'S ELMS, and the lumberjacks chain-sawed them down. The elms they were saving, I realized, were NEXT to the ones they were cutting down. There was nothing you could do once they had gotten the disease. All you could do was cut them down to try to save the next trees over that might next get infected. It was a heartbreaking thing to see these giants, amidst billows of sawdust, come crashing down. At the end, when the Dutch Elm Disease had run its course and no further elms were showing signs of the disease, about half of all the trees were gone. Only 30 giants remained, in some sort of random pattern on Main Street. And for the first time in two generations sunlight shone down on that street for much of its length. I've never quite forgiven what the town did after that. With the epidemic done, it was decided not to risk planting elms again. The giants on the street would remain, of course, but the new ones planted would be a variety-- zelkovas, Chinese elms, linden, beech, silver maples --trees which are immune to the disease, but not nearly as tall when full grown as the old. They certainly do not overarch the road from one side to the other in the way that the giant elms once did. Now it is 20 years later, and though these new trees are lovely, they do not create the grandeur that had been there before, which is only hinted at by the few giants that still remain. There is, however, one stretch of road, not on Main Street, where you can still get the sense of what these magnificent trees once did for Main Street, and that is on the one long block of Woods Lane, leading down to the pond and the turn onto Main Street. It is now, just this week and next, coming into full bloom and you can drive under the canopy of it, though just for that short way, and you can get a sense of (continued on page 26) SALTY HOME 75 130 Main St., Westhampton Beach, NY special event !

With that in mind, I would like to suggest to all those involved in this to think globally, but act locally. There are dozens of charities in this community that need funding and otherwise just get by. You can set up donation plans for them and if you want to visit their facilities and see the good they do for the people in our community, you can go there and see for yourselves. As editor of this newspaper, I've often had calls from people running charities out of our area about how, since many rich people live here, they would like to come here and raise money and take it home with them to elsewhere-- Pittsburgh, Washington--and can I think of a venue where they could do that and would I like to hook up with them. Good as these charities might be, I am not enthusiastic about this. And I must say that our local government officials are not either. At least two of our towns are putting together new laws that would consider issuing permits to people at least partially on the basis of where the donations they are seeking might wind up. We have all heard horror stories about charities where the money comes in and much of it is used to pay and enrich those who administer the charities-- with high salaries, vacations and various other perks. The March of Dimes comes to mind. Fortunately today, there are organizations that monitor this behavior. You can read about these rating organizations on the Internet. I do believe as a result of this, abuses are now few and far between. It's just that when you can actually see how the money is being used, you can be sure. And that's what the local charities allow you to do. Probably the granddaddy of fundraisers for local charities was the 10-year run of the "Back at the Ranch" concerts in Montauk back in the 1990s. A basket of local charities were arranged. That's where the money, which amounted to millions, went. I recently received a letter asking for support--we all receive these letters from time to time--from Ross Perchik, a local architect, who for years has run the Sandcastle Building Contest in Amagansett. In recent times, he has also run the Great Bonac Fireworks Show in Three Mile Harbor for charity. His organization, called the Clamshell Foundation, is set up with a large emphasis on helping children. Here's a list he sent of where the money he has raised has gone: Camp Good Grief, East Hampton Historical Society, KidFEST, college scholarships for high school seniors, turkeys and chickens to food pantries and churches, Toys for Tots, the Dory Rescue Squad, The E.H. Trustees Shellfish program, the Odie Fund, SFD Holiday Meals for Seniors, the Junior Lifeguard Program, the U.S. Coast Guard Boating Safety Week, 400 T-shirts for the Red Cross, the Nature Conservancy Shellfish Program, the Olman Sanabria Humanitarian Award. All told, more $100,000 (continued on page 24) LIPA, INCOMPETENT, AT THE CROSSROADS By Assemblyman Fred Thiele Jr. Long Islanders can no longer tolerate inept, unaccountable, political appointees leading Long Island's utility. As New York State Assemblyman, I have called again for the replacement of the current appointed LIPA Board with elected Trustees. The case continues to build for an elected Board of Trustees for LIPA. In just the last year, LIPA has been caught over-collecting on energy bills ($230 million), overcharging for fuel ($136 million), overspending for storm preparation ($33 million), and overpaying for taxes for aging power plants. LIPA is drifting aimlessly in ever-turbulent seas. The response of LIPA's Chairman: Bring Back LILCO, the name it operated under when it was a privately owned company. We have been ill-served by the political appointees to LIPA. Let the public choose the leadership of its utility. LIPA has fought any oversight of its operation tooth and nail. However, they cannot hide their incompetence anymore. The response of the LIPA Chair Howard Steinberg to Governor Cuomo's direction to have the State Inspector-General audit LIPA: privatize. The fault, dear Steinberg, is not in our stars, but in ourselves. The answer is not to return to the days of LILCO, but to fulfill the original promise of LIPA, which was governance by elected Trustees. Only then will there be the transparency and accountability needed for the effective leadership necessary to formulate an energy plan for Long Island's future. Last year the State Assembly approved legislation creating an elected board. No action was taken by the State Senate. Dan's Papers May 6, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 22 Jerry (continued from page 17) "They're copywriters," he was told. "Wow," he said. And from that moment on, Della Femina decided his goal was to go into the advertising business. Jerry was already enormously successful in the ad business when I met him, of course. I once went to visit him in Manhattan at his office. At this time there were offices for his company, Della Femina, Travisano and Partners, in half a dozen cities. He employed more than 400 people. And when you went to his office, you did not look up his floor on a directory in the lobby of this office building, you found his name directly over the revolving doors. Here's how funny Jerry Della Femina was then. And still is. He told me this story about how back in the early days, they used to test out television commercials by bringing people on the street up to the office, give them coffee and cake, ask them to watch a T.V. commercial and then give their opinions of it. On the other side of a one-way mirror, in an adjacent room, the big shots at the agency could watch and listen to what these people were doing and saying. One day they showed a dozen women a commercial about a new product, a douche. The interviewer, also a woman, asked them a question. Would they use this product before intercourse? Of course, they all said, going around the table. But there was one woman, a woman named Mrs. Sullivan, who said she would not. Spring is Finally Here.

"Because I never know when Mr. Sullivan will strike," she said. About a year after this, Della Femina sold his agency to some of his partners. I never knew the circumstances of it, but what I was told at the time was that he had some disagreement with his partners and so he let himself be bought out. Fact was, a few years later, he was back on Madison Avenue, not with the name Della Femina, of course, because he had sold that, but with his first name. They couldn't stop him from opening a new agency called "Jerry, Inc." In the interval between when he owned Della Femina, Travisano and Partners and when he opened Jerry, Inc., he was out here in the Hamptons at what he had hoped would be just his vacation home and it seemed now he had nothing to do. Della Femina having nothing to do was a vacuum waiting for something to get into it. Soon, it did. Jerry bought a small, failed shopping center called the Red Horse on the highway as you come into East Hampton, opened a market he called Jerry and David's, rented out the other spaces, and fought with the Village about this or that zoning. He also bought, with partners, Wings Point, the very place where I had met him, changing the name to East Hampton Point and opening, with partners, a restaurant there. And then he also opened Della Femina, a popular and ultimately very famous restaurant on North Main Street in that town. It closed this past Saturday after 19 years, and will re-open as East Hampton Grill, owned by the Hillstone Group, over Memorial Day weekend. In any case, shortly after Jerry, Inc. started up in Manhattan, Della Femina settled with his wife, Judy Licht, and his kids, into a routine. They'd be a few days in the city and a few days in the country, back and forth. Judy Licht was by this time a well-known network T.V. newswoman. In 1995, on the occasion of the 35th anniversary of this newspaper, Della Femina and Licht did a nice thing for me I will never forget. They held a huge anniversary bash for me at their oceanfront home, picking up the entire tab for almost 200 people for the occasion. A year later, I returned the favor. Jerry was fighting with the authorities of East Hampton Village over this and that at his market at the Red Horse. The town's latest trick was to hand him a summons for piling a stack of pumpkins out front on the lawn between the building and the Montauk Highway. There were also sheaves of corn stalks and a wheelbarrow with the pumpkins spilling out. "They gave me a ticket for not having a permit for a SIGN!" he wailed. "This is crazy! A pile of pumpkins is a sign? Write something about it." I told him I would. But then he told me something else. "Meet me down at Village Hall. They have a summons for my arrest for this. I didn't show up for a court appearance. I'm going down there. It's going to be a circus." But I hadn't been in the newspaper business for 35 years for nothing. I knew the ropes. Particularly the ropes when it came to failing to (continued on page 28) 934 Dan's Papers May 6, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 23 AT $44 MILLION, A RECORD TEARDOWN By David Lion Rattiner Well, now I think I've heard just about everything. Former Goldman Sachs CEO Jon Corzine, who was also the Governor of New Jersey, sold his house to investment banker and former Goldman Sachs executive David Tepper last year for $43.5 million dollars. It was one of the largest sales in the Hamptons last year, and everybody talked about how David Tepper, who used to work for Corzine but then left to start his own firm that made him a billionaire, was enjoying the extra icing on the cake that he got from buying the luxury home of his former boss. Well, Tepper just made some interesting news last week when he decided that he wasn't going to live in the house this summer, but instead was going to tear the whole darned thing down. Last week, Tepper got approval from Southampton to tear down the entire house that Corzine built in 2000, to make way for an entirely new house so that it will have a better view and will be to the new owner's liking. The teardown is now considered to be the largest of it's kind. I think this news has even made Ira Rennert blush. The upcoming construction has pretty much sent a wave of relief among construction workers and crews in Southampton who very much need more work. But a $44-million-dollar teardown? A $44-MILLION-DOLLAR TEARDOWN!!!! I know the $44 million is for the whole property and the house that sits on it, but STILL. What the hell happened here? Was this really the original plan? To tear it down? We think we have a few ideas as to what happened and would like to speculate on just how it was decided to tear down this $44 million dollar house: 1: His wife liked it at first when they bought it, then decided that she didn't like the view, then didn't like a door that squeaked in the bathroom. THEN DECIDED TO KNOCK DOWN THE ENTIRE DAMN HOUSE! 2: David Tepper owns the construction firm contracted for the tear down as well as a lot of Home Depot stock and wants to stimulate both. 3: David Tepper really, really, really can't wait to casually drop in on a conversation that starts out as, "We just bought a Hamptons home for $2 million and are tearing it down to rebuild because we want a bigger house, we know it costs a little more, but we don't mind, we have the money... "OHHHhhhh, you did a little teardown did you?" 4. The family got to the house, walked into the kitchen, and noticed all of the little details that reminded them of former owner Jon Corzine. All of the television sets in the house were preset to New Jersey Nets games and the bathrooms and kitchens were fitted with appliances known to be popular amongst Goldman Sachs executives. Then of course there was the view, to set the whole thing on fire which WAS JUST NOT to help them with training. GOOD ENOUGH!

The Sandcastle Contest will take place this year on August 6. The Great Bonac Fireworks will take place on July 16. Julie Ratner, who lost a sister to cancer many years ago, has for the past 15 years held Ellen's Run to raise money for charity. As you might expect, the money raised, which averages about a quarter of a million dollars a year, goes to cancer related charities. Having received the letter from Ross Perchik, I thought to ask Julie where her money goes. Almost all of it, it turns out, goes locally. Ellen's Run has donated to the new Southampton Hospital Ellen Hermanson Breast Center, other money goes to oncological social work, to Neighbors Helping Neighbors, which can provide eyeglasses for needy kids, transportation for kids having to get to the doctor, to Cancer Alert, which is a lecture series, for equipment for Southampton Hospital, for Ellen's Well, an oncological support center for cancer survivors, for the "Day of Hope," for gifts for the ill. "The money we raise on the East End is spent on the East End," she told me. Ellen's Run will take place in Southampton on Sunday, August 21, with a party on Saturday evening, July 30, at West Kill Farm in Bridgehampton that will feature Laura Linney. Dan's Papers has its own fundraiser every year, an affair we have run for the past 33 years TAKE A BACKYARD VACATION called the Dan's Papers Potatohampton Minithon. Beneficiaries over the years have included the Bridgehampton Child Care and Recreation Center, the Southampton Animal Shelter, the eastern Long Island branch of the American Heart Association and Southampton Hospital. The race will take place this year on Saturday morning, June 4. In addition to local charities that provide help for people in need, of course, there are nonprofits that need help to provide services to enrich our minds. These include Bay Street Theatre, Guild Hall, our local libraries, the Parrish Art Museum, the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center and a host of others. There are also charities that provide services for our pets. ARF and Bide-aWee come to mind. And now a personal plug: I would also like to invite everyone reading this to come to the annual Gospel Concert to benefit the Bridgehampton Child Care and Recreation Center. I've been an active member of the board of this group for many years, and it's an easy drive down the Sag Harbor Turnpike from our offices to see how that facility provides day care, summer camp, recreation on their fields and educational programs such as lectures and computer classes.

When we rounded them up-- and he has a very distinctive style--we were able to see just how extensive this was." On the back of many of them, Amundsen sometimes attached biographies of the artist he invented who painted what was on the front. He'd type them up. "These I would like to see," I said. As it happened, Wallace had them with him. They were written up in the manuscript of his biography of Amundsen--getting published next month--and he had it in his car. He went and got it. "Sven Sagg.

Most of his paintings reveal the turbulent strength of the sea, the beauty of which was never before so completely realized as in Nansen's compositions." "I see the paintings have a number and a folio number written on these biographies," I said. "He made them all up.

In some ways, I think it is a sort of curse to have seen Main Street go through its humbling transformation during the last 50 years. Just last week, I drove along and, as I always do, noted the few giants on Main Street which separate the newer trees and lamented the passing of the stand and considered how it will never, in my lifetime, be what it once was back in the day. Yesterday, at our weekly editorial meeting, I learned that a photograph exhibit is about to go on display at LongHouse on Hands Creek Road in East Hampton, which will feature "The Elms of East Hampton." At first, when I heard about it, I thought, oh, they have discovered an old treasure trove of photos taken years ago. But then I learned that it is the current stand of trees, battered in my opinion, but beautiful to others who don't know the story, that are the subject of the exhibit. I guess what you don't know, nobody will tell you. And at this point, I turn over the baton of this story to Senior Editor Elise D'Haene, who has written a charming invitation to this exhibit. * * * * There is a feeling that overcomes you when you drive down Woods Lane, turn left onto Main Street at Town Pond and head into East Hampton Village. History and grace seep into one's senses, a palpable sense of arriving. Much of this is due to the canopy of the stately elms, creating a sense of safety and refuge from the discord of the day. Garie Waltzer, a photographer who lives in Ohio, was given an assignment by Russell Hart, a former executive editor of American Photo magazine, to travel to East Hampton last year to photograph our elm trees.

He was at the height of his powers in the 1970s and 1980s. I've sold some for more than $10,000." Wallace of course knows the biography of Amundsen by heart. Amundsen was born in New York City in 1911 to a Norwegian mother and an English father, went to the Grand Central School of Art, and in 1932 became a founder, along with Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Beaufort and Joseph Delaney and others, of the Washington Square Outdoor Art Show. In 1934, he was part of an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. His contribution was a sketch of Adolph Hitler, who had just become Chancellor of Germany. One half of the portrait was Hitler, the other half was the devil. The wife of the German Ambassador saw it hanging at the Met and demanded it be taken down, and the Met took it down, which created quite a stir. Articles about this acquiescence appeared in The New York Times and other publications. Of course, we know what happened to Hitler 10 years later. Amundsen painted Navy ships during the war and did cover illustrations for Motor Boating Magazine. Then, in 1946, he moved to Sag Harbor where he became quite the character. Besides being the town's most prolific painter, he loved sailing, and founded many local groups and events, including the Sea Scouts, the Three Mile Harbor Sailing Fleet, the Montauk Sailing Club and the Outboard Racing Regatta in Sag Harbor, which became the precursor of the Sag Harbor Whaling Festival. "Of course, Cappy Amundsen was not his real name," Wallace said. "Why did this not occur to me?" I asked. "He was born Casper Hjalmar Emerson, III." "But he changed it to Amundsen." "Legally. But he also called himself Cappy. He hated Casper. And besides, he was the Third." The show at the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum begins on June 3 and will run through September, with the first Annual Cappy Amundsen Outdoor Juried Art Show happening on September 10, just one of several events tied to the exhibit. Wallace's upcoming biography of Amundsen, called Cappy: The Life and Art of C. Hjalmar Amundsen, will be out soon. Dan's Papers May 6, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 27 Nature, Doing Her Smelly Thing in Sag Harbor By T.J. Clemente The natural beauty of the East End is so often arresting to the eye. The simple sounds of wild birds and the scent of that fresh ocean air can bring out the Henry David Thoreau in all of us. However, for those few who happened to venture close to Brick Kiln Road as it passes over Ligonee Brook in Sag Harbor last week, the smell of nature was reportedly pungent and unpleasant due to the aroma of dead fish carcasses. It was the smell of hundreds of dead alewives in the brook. Larry Penny, the Director of Natural Resources for East Hampton Town, went down to check out the situation after he was called in to inspect what happened. An alewife is a small herring that has a greenish to bluish back and silvery sides with faint dark stripes. Landlocked alewives reach an average length of about six inches in adulthood. Spawning takes place in the dark of night in the spring in groups of two or three over the sandy or gravelly bottoms in creeks and brooks. Freshwater female alewives usually deposit 10,000 to 12,000 eggs, whereas their sea-run counterparts produce 60,000 to 100,000 eggs. Sea-run alewives, ones who live in saltwater bays, such as Gardiner's Bay, move up to freshwater streams from the sea to spawn from late April to early June. Spawning takes place in lakes and sluggish stretches of rivers above tidal influence. Landlocked alewives move from deep water to shallow beaches in lakes and are known to move up streams to ponds to spawn in spring. They are known for large spring "die-offs," and apparently that is exactly what happened in Sag Harbor. There is no connection to this die-off and the 1,000-plus fish-kill of white perch in Big Reed Pond in Montauk last summer, which Penny had said then was caused by record heat that manifested the dead algae to absorb the oxygen in the pond thus causing the fish-kill. Penny noted that weekend rainfall caused slight flooding across Brick Kiln Road. His theory is that the alewives were on their way to spawn when the water levels dropped quickly, leaving them stranded in the brook. Mark Abramson, a Senior Environmental Analyst at the E.H. Department of Natural Resources, also inspected the sight and said that due to the relatively small number of dead fish he observed it was not a fish kill caused by flood water bringing discharge into the brook, but just "local birds feeding on the fish spawn...easy pickings, part of the natural food chain." Either way, there has been a lot of rain and flooding this spring, which is good because in years past Penny has said that the jellyfish population in surrounding waters goes down substantially when there is early spring flooding. No one will object to a low jellyfish population this summer. TIME TO TURN ON YOUR SPRINKLER SYSTEM Have Ray Smith & Associates, Inc. maintain, repair, or design & install your sprinkler system.

The full exhibit features 26 commissioned images taken by photographers of horticultural specimens, many threatened, ranging from a 200-year-old poplar in Washington, D.C. to 4,000 cherry trees in New Jersey. "The Elms of East Hampton" are part of the exhibit. "When I arrived in East Hampton I was struck by how majestic the struggling elms were, some in not as good shape as others, and how important the elms were to the overall feel of the village," Waltzer said. "I tried to capture a combination of the stamina and majesty of the trees versus their vulnerability and delicacy," she continued. "I was able to gain a reasonable perspective in regard to the height of the trees by photographing from a tall ladder, enabling a view of both the shapes of the trees, the canopy they form over the street and the delicate detail of their leaf structures." Her photographs are something to behold. LongHouse Reserve is open Wednesdays and Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m. throughout May and June, and Wednesdays through Saturdays in July and August. More information can be found online at longhouse.org.

"Don't go to Village Hall," I told him. "If you don't show up there, they will come get you. They will come in a squad car, put handcuffs on you in front of your store and take you in that way. Call me when you see the flashing lights, then hold them off. I'll get down there and take the picture." I live just two miles from Red Horse. At first Della Femina either didn't get this or didn't believe it. I repeated it. "It happened to me," I told him. "Years ago, I failed to show up in court to fight a traffic ticket. The judge issued a bench warrant. A cop handcuffed me right in my driveway and took me in. They do that." "Wow!" A subsequent photo, taken by a better photographer than me, became a classic around town-- Jerry and his partner David Silver--handcuffed, in a police car, the pumpkins in the background. I really treasured my friendship with this crazy man. But the following year, he announced he would run for Mayor of East Hampton. He'd unseat the incumbent. "Endorse me," Jerry said. But in good conscience, I could not. The Mayor had been in office for 10 years. He was doing a good job as near as I could see. There was also the fact the Mayor was a local guy, born and bred. I seriously wondered about the advisability of electing a rich city guy to run the village, hefting all that money around. So I wrote that Jerry was running, and I wrote that the other guy was running and that was as far as I went. In any event, Jerry went down to thundering defeat. A few years later, Jerry agreed to become a minority partner in a newspaper that a few disaffected reporters from The East Hampton Star wanted to start. It affected our friendship. Now we were at arm's length. And when that newspaper, year after year, lost money and required fresh infusions of capital, Jerry would oblige until finally, he became the majority stockholder of the paper. Now Della Femina was a direct competitor of Dan's Papers. And now we weren't seeing things so eye to eye at all. Reading his columns in the paper, I began to see that Della Femina had pretty right-wing ideas--I think he himself described his political position as just to the right of Attila the Hun. Well, we had never talked about politics. Mine tend to be on the other end of the spectrum. At one point, Latinos, offended by an article about illegal immigrants in Jerry's paper, The Independent, picketed the newspaper offices. On another occasion, the editor of the paper wrote a horrifically offensive article that came out during Barack Obama's 2008 Presidential campaign. Here is Obama, in the column, supposedly speaking about Hillary. "Ultimately, if she gets too close, one of my New York advisors has advised me `Bitch slap that ho.' White women I am told, like that." And then this. "We be, you know, sick of whitey supressin' and congestin', so, you know, we won't denigrate or sophisticate but emulate and populate, you know, the system is like, broken y'all." People demanded Della Femina fire that editor. He didn't. There came another time when something happened with Della Femina that made me question how he might have fared had he been elected Mayor of the town. When Della Femina bought the property where he intended to put his restaurant, he also bought a small parking lot adjacent on one side with the building. In the past, that lot, along with a lot on the other side of the restaurant owned by a supermarket owner across the street, had been open and available for everybody. But Della Femina put signs up. His lot would henceforth be only for the exclusive use of his customers. All others would be towed. It was a first. Other lots in that shopping area had no such restrictions. Village officials, receiving complaints from neighboring merchants, tried to get him to reverse this decision. He would not. Village officials then tried harder, and as a result of that, Della Femina not only kept up his signs but then put up more signs, blaming the Village for doing something to him that had caused him to do this and then, putting the names of these officials right on his second sign, demanded that they be removed from office. They were, of course, not. But in the end Della Femina got what he wanted and it is that way today. Is Della Femina really leaving America because he won't let the country take a bigger (Continued on page 36) 51 5K MINITHON Saturday, June 4, 2011 51 9:00 a.m. at Bridgehampton Militia Park, Ocean Rd.

He was looking at a Dali, but said it wasn't that particular piece of art that had him in tears, "rather the aggregate of looking at the Grises, the Miros, the Picassos, the artists whose names I forgot." His reaction startled him, he had been to countless museums and galleries before, had traveled to 19 countries in six months after he graduated from college, and has since doubled that amount. It was more like one of those inexplicable moments in life--a game changer, maybe soul changer is more apt--and two weeks later, back in East Hampton, "I was minding my own business in the lower level of my home and the thought came to me that I should paint." He wrestled with the voice. "It was a voice to be honest. And I was somewhat incredulous: Me? Paint? You're kidding, right?" You could say that The Voice won the argument. Haweeli put paint to canvas. His first painting, "Gardiner's Afternoon" depicts "a three-masted schooner of sorts plugging along in Gardiner's Bay on a sunny afternoon. I have a buyer interested in it but I can't sell and won't sell that piece," he said. "It's very special to me, plus my son was there with me when I painted it." Scott Pitches, who owns the Outeast Gallery sidering a calling to become an Episcopal priest, that is until the Diocese of New York thought better of that notion. I was rejected." Making art has been a process of "excavation" for him, "there's always a deeper level to take `the dig,' as it were," he said. "With my artwork, there are marks and designs that may be initially present in a piece--and I am pleased with them--but I've learned to add another layer to get to the `truth' of the final product. This added layer parallels the added levels I've discovered in myself: self-deceit or that I'm capable of more love than I imagined or that I'm more lonely than first `diagnosed.'" Karyn Mannix, an artist, curator and gallery owner, "is probably the person most responsible for a lot of my success because she chose me (as a complete unknown) to be one of `her' artists last year for her artist's cooperative." Many of his paintings include the symbol of the cross. "I believe in redemption. I need the cross as my primary weapon in fighting the demons, real or imagined, that also chase me. So I've got demons and crucifixes chasing me down Three Mile Harbor Road. And when I paint, the demons pause." Haweeli said that "every time I see great abstract art I can feel my chest open up, whether it's Athos Zacharias out here or Joan Mitchell's piece at the recent MoMA show. Great abstracts seem to allow me to exhale." His work can be seen at his Haweeli.com or at karynmannixcontemporary.com. in Montauk, has invited Haweeli back for a second solo exhibit, "Excavations II," opening Saturday, May 7, with a reception from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The show can be seen through May 19 at 65 Tuthill Road. Haweeli is well known on the East End as the founder of WordHampton Public Relations, but in the last few years as he has exhibited his artwork regularly, his high regard as a wordsmith has almost been trumped by his incarnation as an artist. Among his many past incarnations, he was a gravedigger: "I've buried seven people. I was the on-call gravedigger for my church in Manhasset, where I went to high school." A bartender: "I made a living as a bartender and maitre d' in my 20s and 30s."

A small-town boy from Alliance, Ohio, Hamilton has lived in Sag Harbor for the last 20 years with his beautiful wife, Emma Walton Hamilton, two children, Sam and Hope, and Louis, their dog. It's no wonder that Hamilton wound up immersed in the world of theatre. "My father, Dick, was the director of the local theatre group for many years in Alliance, Ohio, and built the Carnation City Theatre's permanent home there in the late `70s...I married into a rather illustrious theatre family: My wife of 20 years and partner at the Bay Street Theatre, Emma Walton Hamilton, is the daughter of Julie Andrews, and her dad is the famous Broadway theatre designer and director, Tony Walton." The call to the stage was answered when Hamilton began acting in musicals in high school, then continued on to attend the Ohio University School of Theatre. He acted from the late 1970s to early `90s, appearing in film, television, and offBroadway theatres in New York City and across the country. The inspiration behind Hamilton's acting and career is vast. "When I was young I admired actors whose work somehow hit me in the heart or head... then I looked to actors who took control over their own careers." This attitude led to his co-founding of the Bay Street Theatre. "It's such a competitive business for an actor! I realized early on that I was going to have to become the master of my own destiny...and create our own theatre company." As for some of the challenges Hamilton faces, he said the hardest part of acting for him is "closing Chip Cooper Stephen Hamilton, Actor The hardest part of acting is "closing night, if it's a good show. Opening night, if it's a dog." night, if it's a good show. Opening night, if it's a dog." He also confided, "I get stage fright every night before I go onstage at the beginning of the show. But I just do it, go out there and start, and it all goes away." One of Hamilton's most cherished accomplishments is Sag Harbor's pride and joy: The Bay Street Theatre, which he co-founded with Emma, and their business partner, Sybil Christopher. Hamilton also served as Executive Director for 17 years there, leaving his post in 2008. "We were able to forge our own destiny, but of course were faced with a whole new set of challenges. We were able to participate in the world of theater in an important, exciting, and fulfilling manner." Some of Hamilton's proudest moments were his work in The Lonesome West, and ART, in which he acted, directed, and produced. He performed in Equus alongside fellow East Ender and award-winning actor Alec Baldwin at Guild Hall last summer. Hamilton also teaches acting. "I have a scene study class going on right now through mid-May, and one to start soon after. My private coaching practice is continuous. I have such a wide variety of students, from adults who are professionals in the business, to high school and college students auditioning for theatre programs and companies." Aside from coaching at a studio and making house calls, Hamilton has also taken to the non-traditional method of Skype coaching. "This is a great option for people who are too far to have a face-to-face coaching session. Plus, it's a great way for a quick refresher or pep talk right before a performance." "The Skype sessions are surprisingly effective. In fact, many of my students are auditioning (continued on page 36) Chelsea Cabinets Kitchen & Baths Zorlu Construction Design & Build We provide complete services Custom Furniture Manufacturing www.Chelseacabinets.com sales@Chelseacabinets.com 631-353-1227 631 734 8280 3015 Dan's Papers May 6, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 32 Catch This Broadway Play if You Can By Gordin & Christiano The new Broadway musical Catch Me If You Can, based on the 2002 Steven Spielberg film of the same name, boasts a Tony Award-winning dream team of creative talent and an array of new pop/jazz tunes by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, the songwriters behind the long-running hit Broadway musical Hairspray. Their energetic, swinging score, reminiscent of the 1960s, is an absolute delight, along with terrific orchestrations by Shaiman and Larry Blank. Add sexy choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray) featuring leggy chorus girls in little skirts and big hair; throw in a book by Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally; let Jack O'Brien (Hairspray, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) direct; and tell the tale in flashback like a `60s variety show with the orchestra sitting right on stage. Voila! You get a hit new Broadway musical � Catch Me If You Can! The story is inspired by the true adventures of Frank Abagnale Jr., a world-class con artist who avoided the FBI for several years, played on film by Leonardo DiCaprio in a role that was probably one of his finest performances. Here the jet-setting Abagnale is played solidly by Aaron Tveit of Next to Normal fame. Frank passes himself off as a doctor, a lawyer and a jet pilot--all before the age of 21-- dodging the hot pursuit of Norbert Leo Butz as Carl Hanratty FBI agent Carl Hanratty, who is brilliantly portrayed in the new musical by Norbert Leo Butz, a Tony winner for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Frank manages to stay one step ahead of Carl until love catches up with him in the form of Brenda Strong, nicely rendered by Kerry Butler. Everything looks and sounds wonderful, but nothing really comes to life until midway through the first act when Butz practically stops the show with "Don't Break the Rules." For the first time there is a sense of excitement that has been missing and we get a truly rousing production number with the fantastic Butz at the center. Butz turns Carl into a marvelous Columbo-like character, but his detective sings and dances in character without missing a beat. It's a bravura star turn that is simply delicious, and he is back again in the second act in a buddy number with Tveit, "Strange but True," which provides needed zing. There are a couple of things that keep the evening from soaring. The variety show gimmick, which on paper might seem cute, seems to suck the life out of the show, despite the fact there is much to like here--even outstanding--about Catch Me If You Can. The conceit appears to strip the musical of momentum, and unfortunately the cat and mouse chase that ought to be filled with twists and turns offers few surprises. Although the idea is a nice device to move the musical through a series of locations, the concept adds little to the accumulated storyline and the evening becomes rather neat and predictable. The other factor at play is that the gifted Tveit has a scrubbed clean boy-next-door image; he needs a little devil in him, a mischievousness that he is taking a thrilling ride and delights in knowing it. The talented Tveit just doesn't possess that sort of charisma. In this Catch Me If You Can, the FBI agent is the most wanted and the musical feels like a poor man's Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Catch Me If You Can opened on April 10 at the Neil Simon Theatre, 250 West 52nd Street, New York. For tickets go to Ticketmaster.com or call 877-250-2929.

They wear padded vests, helmets and boxing gloves so riders know who they are. One of the applicants changed his mind about applying when he learned of the requirements and left and so we had 30 applicants for 30 jobs, so that turned out just fine. SUGGESTION BOX None of the suggestion boxes on any of the platforms contained any suggestions this past week, and so it was decided that this coming week would be a good time to take all of them down, refurbish them and give them a fresh paint job. That is why you will not see any of them on the walls this week. GERMAN SHEPHERD BRIEFLY LOST A large German Shepherd named "Howdy" got out through the barbed wire fence surrounding the Montauk yard Wednesday night. Howdy and five others are highly trained and vicious dogs used in the yard to protect and defend the subway cars that park there every night from vandalism and worse. No vandalism occurred that night, and in the morning, "Howdy" was back at the front gate to the yard and we let him back in. He had a small letter Scotch taped to his collar which said that he had been helpful in chasing off a wolf that was menacing and had cornered a French Poodle on Surfside Drive and the owner was very grateful. It was signed "Howdy's New Friend, Agnes Alouwiches."

All 17 of our "celebrity spotter volunteers" were out on the trains this weekend, but, sadly, without result. ON TIME THIS WEEK For each of the past seven days, all the trains left the Montauk yard exactly on time and stopped at all the stations exactly on schedule, 12 minutes apart. It is the first time in three years that this has occurred. Kudos to all the motormen. ESCALATORS NOT NEEDING REPAIR The 28 Up and Down escalators going from street level to the platforms in all 14 of our stations operated flawlessly this past week without any need for repair. The escalators are all from the original manufacturer from when the subway system was built in 1931, and though in the past they have frequently broken down, none did so this week, a testament to the quality of American workmanship back at that time. GOOD HEALTH All 160 employees at Hampton Subway reported for work on time every day last week, and none called in sick, probably because the good weather of this past week translated into good health. The Subway Para-rescue Squad, the four-man team based at our Hampton Bays Headquarters, also had nothing to do all week because none of the straphangers became sick or injured, also probably for the same reason. LARGE RACCOON BETWEEN NOYAC AND NORTH SEA A giant raccoon, which Motorman Fred Friendly encountered on the tracks in front of him between Noyac and North Sea on Tuesday at 4:13 p.m. turned out not to be a problem. Friendly slowed and then honked his horn and the raccoon looked up, smiled, and trotted off through a hole in the subway tunnel wall to let the train by. Motorman Friendly was able to make up the time with a short burst of turbo speed and arrived at the North Sea Station properly on time. "PUSHERS" WANTED 31 muscle-bound young men and women arrived at the Hampton Bays Headquarters on Monday to interview for the 30 summer positions being offered up for part-time subway "pushers" during the rush hours at six of our most crowded stations.

We were all watching what was happening. A few of the sales girls were crying. Some of us, myself included, were talking about how we were hoping that a war would happen to get the bastards behind this. In a short amount of time, I learned the name Osama Bin Laden, and I can remember reading the entire history of all the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan on the Internet. I don't really know how we did it, but the paper got put out. I remember that in that issue and in a few issues following it, we had a glossy American flag inserted into the paper, which I think was paid for by Dell Computers. There were directions in small print, it said, "Pull out of paper, insert in car window, embrace freedom." TWENTY SOMETHING by David Lion Rattiner Where I Was On 9/11 I was going into my sophomore year at college at Northeastern, still home for the summer on September 11, 2001. I woke up to my cellphone ringing and saw that it was my sister Maya in San Francisco, who almost never calls me in the morning. I thought about ignoring it, but answered it. "Maya?" "Are you okay?" "Yeah, I'm fine why?" "Everything is fine right? You guys are all okay?" "Yeah, why?" "Somebody just crashed an airplane into the World Trade Center. Go upstairs and turn on the TV." I raced upstairs into the living room where my Dad and his significant other at that time, Kathy Squires, were standing in front of the television. Kathy had completely lost it and was crying. My Dad stood there and just watched with his eyes wide. He wasn't saying a thing. And then out of nowhere he said, "That building isn't going to hold." A small debate started between him and Kathy, but I knew that my Dad went to Harvard Architecture School, and that if he was saying that, it was probably true. And then, we watched one of the towers fall. At first, I didn't believe it, because the smoke made me think that there was still something there. Even some of the newscasters thought the same. And I just went into a semi-state of shock. It was as if somebody informed me that a loved one just died. I think I would have had the same reaction. The three of us watched as the news unfolded. I remember trying to make a phone call but the service was down. I didn't feel a sense of panic, it was more of a sense of, what now? September 11 was on a Tuesday, which is press day at Dan's Papers, and at the time I was working there for the summer as the editor of the Montauk Pioneer. At one point my Dad said that we needed to get to the paper, and the two of us drove there. On the roads driving, I remember feeling a sense of war in the air. I felt like I wanted to drive fast, like I wanted to do something, but I kept it together. I thought about how later on that evening I had planned on going into New York City and how lucky I was that I didn't go in at an earlier time. I could see other people driving in their cars, both hands on the wheel, leaning forward, furious. When we got to the office, some of the sales people had set up a television so we could all watch the news. Almost everybody that worked for Dan's Papers at that time was in the office and they were glued to the TV. At that time of course, nobody got their news from streaming videos on computers.

The man is not on the Forbes 500, so he is not a billionaire, but it would not surprise me if he's a 100 times a millionaire. So he would indeed be hit with a bigger tax if the Bush tax reductions on the rich were repealed. Now, they'd be returned to what they had been before, under Reagan and Clinton. I hate to say it, but when you are this rich, what's a few more million here or there? He's 75 now. Is he just making a big deal out of retiring? Well, truth is, Della Femina has always acted with vigor and directness. I think we have to take him at his word. Goodbye, Jerry. You're one of a kind.

My high school kids have been particularly successful his year. I have one student who made it into the New York University Theatre Program, with a $50,000 scholarship to boot!" The acting classes that Hamilton gives not only cater to actors, but non-theater students too. The principles taught have proven to be very useful off-stage as well as on, he said. Public speaking skills are helpful to everyone, especially the student novelists, poets, and memoirists in helping to present his/her own work.

It is often said that public speaking of any kind evokes the kind of fear second only to the fear of death. Well, it doesn't have to be that way," he said. Hamilton said that all of the disciplines of his art--acting, directing, producing, and teaching--have "had a synergistic influence and effect on each other. Directing has made me a better actor, and so has teaching. And of course, being experienced in different disciplines and venues has a profound effect on my success as a teacher. Even producing has given me a perspective that can be invaluable to a young actor seeking advice." Hamilton exudes excitement and admiration concerning the East End's "cultural mainstay," the Stony Brook Southampton Playwriting Conference. Two years ago, when Bob Reeves, the director of the MFA program, asked Hamilton and Walton to join the team there they jumped at the chance. Two projects are on the horizon, but only one is ripe for revealing. Hamilton is formulating a top-notch summer program for the Playwriting Conference, consisting of awardwinning playwrights, along with actors and directors from the Ensemble Studio Theatre. For the first time they are adding other theatre disciplines including a Theatre Directing Workshop, and involving such luminaries as his father-in-law, Tony Walton. When he is not absorbed with theater, he can often be found in the kitchen, cooking up delectable meals for his wife and children.

"I would always tell the other mom's that you were really straight-laced and not cool at all with drinking and partying. So they'd get on the phone with you and give you all this B.S. about how they were going to supervise us, and after they hung up, they let us drink and do anything we wanted." "Lovely, I'm so glad you're sharing all this with me today." "You should have taken the time to meet the parents beforehand." "You stayed somewhere different every weekend, you think I should have interviewed all those people? You protested every time I insisted on talking to the parents on the phone. You would've had a fit if I insisted on meeting them." "You should have insisted." "I'm sorry, but I fulfilled my obligation when I talked with all those parents on the phone. If you chose to manipulate me, that's on you." "You never paid attention to me. All I had to do was call you at least once a day on my cellphone and lie to you about where I was and you never checked on me to see if I was really there." "I didn't suspect you of lying to me, so why would I check up on you?" "Because you should have checked on my story once in awhile. You know the time I went away for three days with Sierra's family?" "Yes." "Well, it was her big sister you spoke to on the phone. I actually went to Atlantic City that weekend with my boyfriend who had just learned to drive. I could have been killed and you wouldn't even know where to look for the body." "You left the state without my permission? I'm gonna kill you now." "Remember the money you and Dad gave me for my 15th birthday?" "No, not really, but don't burden me with something I can't do anything about now." "Well, I spent it all on drugs.

I say there are no perfect parents because there are no perfect children. Every parent gets faced with situations they have never encountered before and every one struggles to handle it as best they can. This is especially true with teenagers. Like any normal parent, for four years I pushed for good grades and fought off homicidal urges. When I cried at her graduation, it wasn't for joy, it was relief, because now that she had graduated and was 18, I could finally, legally say, "Oh yeah! Well, them's the rules, and if you don't like it, LEAVE!" "You know how you used to call and talk to the parents of anyone I was staying overnight with when we lived off island, Mom?"

My first thought? "Yum, a fish fry!" Recently, eating the fish and chips at the Southampton Public House reminded me of the fish fries I used to enjoy with my family upstate. Every tavern had `em every Friday night. As a kid I assumed that this was why Friday was called "Friday." It was so exciting to get a fish fry. I wasn't allowed to when I was very young because my parents worried that I might choke on a bone. To be allowed to order fish fry was a sign of maturity and extra exciting if it was beer battered. I was consuming BEER! How urbane. Though my job involves sampling the finest restaurant dishes and edible products the East End has to offer, I miss upstate cheese curd, maple syrup and leeks. I've solved my curd craving by importing squeaky cheese from the Cuba Cheese Shoppe during the colder months. I just got my two gallons of grade B upstate maple syrup from Mark Church in East Otto. It has to be dark, or it's "too fancy." He and his wife very kindly shipped it to me by United Parcel Service, marveling at what an Otto ex pat would and could pay for it. My family hasn't hit on a good way to transport leeks to Long Island yet. The leeks that we grew up on are now called "ramps" and are imported by East End restaurants from Virginia. They taste the same as I remember them, but it's just not the same as diggin' them outta Green's Woods and rushing them home to make them into soup and Limburger sandwiches. HAMPTONS EPICURE Stacy Dermont Who we are is what we ate. When people meet me for the first time they assume I'm "from the city." Because I dress so badly � it reads as arty. After talking for a while, they sometimes ask if I'm from one of the old East End families � both because I'm odd and because I talk about local farming a lot. I was raised upstate in North Otto, where Appalachia overlaps with The Rust Belt, where nothing happens but the weather (a.k.a. snow and mosquitoes). I still love our valley (note: I cannot be a hillbilly because my family lived in a VALLEY.), but I prefer life in the Hamptons in the main. Once in awhile, though, something comes along that makes me really miss the food where I grew up. I opened a piece of mail this morning that began: "You are cordially invited to attend the 99th Annual Reunion of the G.W.G. Bowen Homestead Association. It will be held Aug. 57th. Come join in the fun of Fish Friday at Holiday Valley followed by Bingo, games and prizes at the Bowen Homestead, relax Saturday or enjoy trips to Niagara Falls, Sculpture People say that ramps freeze well, but I can't imagine that they'd play nice with the ice cubes in my freezer. I read in The New York Times last month that scientists fear many ramp populations are in danger from over harvest. Don't we ever learn?! Eat in moderation, in season, people.(And maybe call in the occasional rush order.) Sheltered (continued from previous page) tight, I can't believe you pulled off much once we got back home." "That's true, the mom's on Island are tight, but so are the kids." "Stop. I don't want to hear anymore. Besides, I will be avenged in 12 years, when your daughter becomes a teenager." "She's not going to get away with anything! I will be all up in her business. I will know where she is at all times." "I am buying front-row tickets for that show! You're not going to have any more control over her than I had over you." "I'll interview parents before I let her spend the night in some stranger's home." "I'm sure you'll be a better parent than me, despite your nervous breakdown."

Surely the modern, sometimes over-oaked style would subside, but what would be the result? Well, you can taste the difference for yourself with the recently released Bedell Cellars 2010 Taste Ros� ($18). This wine, which replaces the Domaine CC Ros� in the Bedell/Corey Creek lineup, is dominated by merlot (62%) with cabernet franc (27%), syrah (7%) and petit verdot (4%) � all intended for ros� rather than saignee, whole-cluster-pressed and fermented with ambient yeast. The nose bursts with a distinct passion fruit-meets-guava aroma with notes of peach, strawberry, blood orange and a touch of earthy spice and sage. On the dry, medium-bodied palate the flavors lean a bit more towards red fruit � particularly strawberry and red raspberry � with a dose of passion fruit and blood orange. In the background, there is a nice herbal component and some peppery spice. Not as racy as some local ros�s, there is still nice, fresh acidity here and a bit of tannin as well. They are subtle but add a bit of structure. This Bedell Cellars0 strikes me as an incredibly flexible wine � working well with a variety of foods and situations. The ros� is the first of Olsen-Harbich's wines to be released, but I recently had the opportunity to taste his other 2010s from tank and barrel as well. The first thing that stood out was the sheer number of samples we tasted together. As part of a systematic process to learn about the fruit and wines from various vineyard locations, Olsen-Harbich kept a lot of lots completely separate. He also experimented with some co-fermentations where different grape varieties were crushed and fermented together. Clearly he's enjoying the creative freedom that the Bedell portfolio allows. Many of the 2010 wines were delicious even in their extreme youth, but a few things stood out for me: 2010 Riesling: Made with fruit from vines planted in 1980, this lot is floral and forward with peach, saltwater and a certain chalkiness on the palate. 2010 "Older Vine" Chardonnay: Made with extended skin contact and beach stones in the older barrels. There is a distinct, intense ginger note on the nose with pears, roasted apple and pear skin notes. Full bodied and complex, the acidity is well Rich Olsen-Harbich serves it up. integrated and lingers on a long finish. 2010 White Co-Ferment: Layers of citrus blossom, tropical and stone fruit character dominate with a definite salinity. Beautiful texturally with a faint oiliness. Long and fresh. This is likely to be the base for 2010 Taste White. 2010 Syrah-Viognier Blend: Bright, peppery aromatics with plummy black fruit. Chewy, edgy tannins. 2010 Corey Creek Vineyard Cab Franc: Wow. Explosive nose with intensely ripe blueberry-blackberry fruit, violets, graphite and just a little bay leaf/sage herbaceous quality. 2010 Bedell D Block Merlot: Dark, almost-sweet fruit � black currant and blueberry � with a smoky, spicy quality and a hint of sumac. 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon: Dark cassis intensity with blueberry, mint, graphite, spice and huge, well-integrated structure. The long finish shows a stone-mineral quality. Big, but ripe and balanced. Will most likely be the basis for 2010 Musee, but I sure hope Olsen-Harbich bottles some by itself. It's a possible benchmark cabernet. 2010 Syrah: Smoky and bacony (from new oak), but also ripe fruit and loads of varietal spice. Tannins and acidity are well balanced. Bedell Cellars, Cutchogue.

As this is the Mother's Day issue of Dan's Papers, we checked in with Jenny O'Sullivan of Jenny O Studios in East Patchogue, otherwise known as the Baby Whisperer of photographers, to share with us some of her absolutely adorable photos. Given her career, Jenny O must be swimming in the love hormone. When asked what drew her to photography babies, she said, "It's funny, I didn't initially set out to shoot babies but one of my friends asked me to photograph their new baby and I tentatively agreed. The photos came out great and she loved them, as did I. People saw the photos and I got contacted to do more and more. It snowballed to the point that I photograph babies more than anything else and I love it." Although she also shoots weddings, couples, events and headshots, "with babies there is an innocence and pure essence you hope to capture. I love shooting adults, but there is such a joy and freshness each time I photograph a baby." During a shoot, Jenny enlists the help of the parents to keep the baby's attention. "They often stand beside me or behind me as I am shooting either holding the baby's favorite toy or singing their favorite song. They do whatever it takes to get their child smiling." What can be most challenging, she said, "is obviously when the child gets cranky and starts crying." Jenny goes with the flow, making time for the baby to take a nap, get changed, whatever it needs. "After a little while they are good to go again," she said. Speaking of going with the flow, I asked Jenny to share one of her most memorable photo shoots with an infant. "One time I had the brilliant idea to photograph a subject on a platter on a dining table for a Thanksgiving-themed shoot. We wanted the baby naked, but apparently the platter was cold because immediately upon placement on the platter the baby filled it with pee. We had to wash the platter and decided it was best for the baby to wear a diaper unless we wanted him lying in his own gravy." Jenny received her first Polaroid camera at a very Jenny O Studios young age and "photographed everything!" She studied photography, and in the early days, "practiced all the time photographing my husband, sister, friends and family. The hard work really started to pay off." You can sense the love hormone at work when Jenny says, "Photography is a passion of mine. I love going through all the photographs I take as soon as I have taken them. It's not a job to me; I love every single subject and it brings me joy to find beauty in everything."

She credits her sanity as well to her former boss, Paul of tragedy and a mother's Monte of Gurney's Inn. "Paul was dream.

He handled owner of Djangos Organics, lost her son, Django, in a tragic things for support--food, rooms for Sarah's huge family coming to motorcycle accident in the funeral from out of town. The Amagansett. In one of their last conversations, mother and son Daunts, East Hampton House, on Sarah Malone and Gerry Desmond and on...all were amazing. I'll discussed Sarah's dream of opening never forget such help and love from these wonderful "a little health food shop," in the community where Sarah lives. She was reluctant though, something people." And speaking of wonderful, Sarah's righthand man and fianc�, Gerry Desmond, can't go withunnamed was holding her back. Django told his mother, "Just do it, Mom." Simple words, but he meant them out mention. "Gerry is my rock now. Before it was wholeheartedly. If you knew Django, he was anything Django. Gerry has been so loving and just there quietly doing what Gerry does." but insincere. He looked you right in the eye when he talked and you felt he was listening. Sarah listened to Gerry was the one other person who encouraged her son. Sarah to not lose sight of her dream. She didn't hear him in those dark months following her son's death. When the news came to her about Django's fatal motorcycle ride, Sarah was of course in shock. No "Nothing made any real sense." Least of all, a new business venture. "Fine," Gerry said, "Let's just take a mother should bury her son. How she got through ride then." And when they cruised around Maidstone, such pain, Sarah contributes, not to her own innate strength as a strong woman and mother, but to her the empty shop near the Maidstone Market beckoned them. community. "The East Hampton Town Police were Sarah's other children (she has 10, including phenomenal," Sarah told me. "Particularly Danny Nanci LaGarenne Django), Sabrena, Salina, Wallace, Medina, Tasleema, Mecca, Farod, Jasmine and Dedrick are their mother's heart, and all of them have her back. Most live and work locally, the others reside in Texas. Sarah is grandmother to 18, two of whom live with her now. She is a true matriarch, having taken her cues from her own mother, Aneesah, and her grandmother, who taught her to be there for her children and feed them good food. "My grandmother lived a healthy life. I was raised with good wholesome food. We cooked. We ate vegetables, whole grains." Django's Organics is the result of that teaching. Sarah also studied nutrition, and is a certified Nutritional Counselor. Inside the bright shop, you can find all your herbal teas, Ezekiel breads, have a cup of fresh Django's blend Hamptons Coffee and a marvelous smoothie or green juice at the juice bar. There are loads of all-natural skin and hair remedies, vitamins, organic veggies and fruits, household organic cleaning products, and Anke's Fit Bakery fresh granola, muffins and cookies. The words of her son come back to her on a daily basis. A friend of Sarah's painted a wooden sign for the shop with these words, "Just Do it Mom." It sits in the window and beckons a brighter day, a dream fulfilled. Django's Organics will have its Grand Opening on Saturday, May 7, at 514 Three Mile Harbor Road. The phone number is 631-604-1770.

Weiss "ABC123" at Firestone Gallery Following on the heels of the current Parrish Museum exhibit, East Hampton's Firestone Gallery shares much in common with the Southampton show: the combination of text, words and images. The sources may be different (Gallery owner Eric Firestone has had a long interest in street art and graffiti), but the structures are similar. We can't help but add a side note: museum exhibits of street art are becoming popular. Consider the current one at Los Angeles' Museum of Contemporary Art and a recent display at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. A potent similarity among all these exhibits � including street art � is their conceptual nature, although not everyone would agree. Simply put, conceptual art (which this critic has written about before) focuses on ideas, often relying on non-linear themes rather than images and formal aesthetics. This is not to suggest that all the works in the Firestone show are conceptual, however; some pieces are both conceptual and non-conceptual. Prime among the conceptual works are Stephanie Brody-Lederman's "Promises" and "One Morning You'll Wake Up." Mixing images and word/sentences, the pieces recall past memories, a stream-of-consciousness where experiences and the senses come together to make meaning. Motifs appear, such as pine trees (and birds in some of the artist's other paintings) to make us wonder about their significance. Ed Ruscha's "Ice Princess" also seems like memo- Stephanie Brody-Lederman, Bohemian Rhapsody, 2009 ries relived, with white text on an off-white background and musical notes becoming a personal odyssey. Other works only contain words, including Joe Nanashe's "Everything," and some viewers may wonder if this is indeed art. Dennis Oppenheim's photographic series, "Salutation to the Sky," uses loaded words like "love," "kisses," "always" and "apresto" (Italian for immediately), which are interwoven into configurations of waterways. (We can't help but give extra meaning to these words considering that Oppenheim recently passed away.) Yet the composition, colors and patterns primarily emphasize the visuals, not the conceptual meanings. Loren Munk's Manhattan street maps, showing where well-known artists had their studios, are also both conceptual and abstract images. The studio locations (and art venues) are fascinating bits of art history, indicating how geographic proximity and neighborhoods encouraged art movements for the Abstract Expressionists, for example. Other works center on words and numbers, but since we are not numerologists, we can only assume they are not especially conceptual. Rather, their strengths lie in their colorful shapes (a trait of street art) and geometric compositions. Joshua Abelow's "Call Me Abstract" is one example. So is a piece by Karen Shaw. A few viewers may wonder if some of the conceptual pieces are really art because they are not based on imagery. Curator Janet Goleas has gone a long way to prove this perception wrong. "ABC123" is on view until May 22 at Eric Firestone Gallery on Newtown Lane, East Hampton. Call 631604-2386 for information. HONORING THE ARTIST by Marion W. Weiss Pam Topham Pamela Topham's tapestry reverberates far beyond this week's cover and far beyond the Sagaponack field of wildflowers that it depicts. It even goes beyond the year 1997 when Topham created the work or the inspirational photograph of her daughter, Eliza, standing in that very same field. Eliza may be older now and so is the field, but Topham's commitment to protecting the land, preserving it through her tapestries, remains unchanged. Q: What part does the cover play in your creative work? A: It's part of a four-part series showing Sagaponack fields leading to the ocean. The actual cover image is seen from Parsonage Lane, and I showed it at the 2009 American Tapestry Alliance in San Jose, California. I'm working on the fourth piece now of Sag Pond. Through the series I can look back at all the Sagaponack images. It's "Then and Now." Q: How about the other pieces in the series? A: I showed an image of Peter's Pond, done in 1996, in April in Taos, New Mexico, at a show featuring Southwest weavers. Q: You have quite a connection to New Mexico, living there several years ago for two months. What role does New Mexico play in your series? A: My experience with New Mexico's landscape was a contrast to the environment here; it's high and dry in New Mexico and low and wet here. Q: Is the weaving style in New Mexico different from your own? A: It's mostly Rio Grand style, created in rugs, with stripes, geometric images and symmetrical composition. Q: Speaking of art in New Mexico, how was the art in Santa Fe? A: The galleries are very chic, amazing, stimulating. Of course, I only went to a few of them. Q: I know you love to travel to other places besides New Mexico where you can form a bond with the land. A: I was recently in Costa Rica at the Julia and Alan Rice David White Artists' Colony artist-in-residence program. It was outside a nontourist town, which was nice, on 15 acres of land. I did drawings looking down on the town from a high vantage point. Q: At some point, you'll probably be making tapestries from those drawings and the photographs you took. What do you miss about the place? A: I brought back some sage, and when I miss it, I just take a breath of the sage. Q: Would you like to live in any of the places that are special to you? A: No. Well, maybe for a year. But I like Sag Harbor; it may not have open vistas, but I love the water, going to the Farmer's Market. I like being a sommelier at W�lffer's Vineyards. You don't run off to the mall when you live in Sag Harbor. Q: But most of all, you love what? A: Protecting and preserving the land. We have to appreciate what we have. Pamela Topham's work can be seen on her website, pamelatopham.com. Her tapestry featuring the Rocky Mountains will be in Guild Hall's Annual Members Show, starting May 7. Call 631-324-0806.

Dan's Papers May 6, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 48 & SIMPLE ART OF COOKING by Silvia Lehrer family lunch topped off with her "Who Doesn't Love Carrot Cake" or "Triple Threat Chocolate Chocolate Pudding." Happy Mother's Day! BUTTERMILK BISCUITS Sarabeth's secret for perfect biscuits is to avoid over handling, which activates the gluten in the dough and makes them tough. Makes 16 biscuits 3 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons superfine sugar 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt 12 tablespoons (1and 1/2) sticks unsalted butter, chilled, cut into1/2-inch cubes 1 1/2 cups buttermilk Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400�F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. 1. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt altogether in a bowl of a heavy-duty stand-mixer. Attach the bowl to the mixer to fit with the paddle attachment. Add the butter. Mix on low speed until the mixture resembles coarse meal with some pea-size pieces of butter. Add the buttermilk, mixing just until the pieces come together. 2. Scrape the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times until the dough is smooth. Sprinkle the top of the dough with flour and roll out a little more than 3/4 inch thick. Using a 2 1/4 inch fluted biscuit cutter, dipping the cutter into flour between cuts, cut out the biscuits and place 1 inch apart on the pan. Gently place the scraps together (do not over handle the dough). Repeat rolling and cutting. 3. Bake until the biscuits are well risen and golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve hot or warm. To reheat the biscuits, wrap them in aluminum foil and bake in a preheated 350�F for about 10 minutes. CARROT CAKE Every baker should have a good carrot cake in his or her repertoire, writes Sarabeth. It's one she turns to again and again. Makes 6 to 8 servings Bakers note: For the most attractive results, bake the cake in an 8-cup fluted cake pan. Softened, unsalted butter for the pan 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour plus more for the pan 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt 1 cup superfine sugar 2/3 cup vegetable oil 2 large eggs, at room temperature 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots (use the large holes on a box grater) 1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, well drained (1/2 cup) 1/2 cup (2 ounces) walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped 1/2 cup seedless raisins Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350�F. Butter and flour the inside of a fluted tube pan and tap out the excess flour. 1. Sift the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a medium bowl. Combine the sugar, oil and eggs in a bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer. Attach the bowl to the mixer and fit with the whisk attachment. Beat on high speed until the mixture has thickened slightly and is light in color and texture, about 3 minutes. Reduce the mixer speed to low. In thirds, add the flour mixture and mix, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed, just until the batter is smooth. Add the carrots, pineapple, walnuts and raisins and mix until combined. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula. 2. Bake until a cake tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Invert and unmold the cake onto the rack and let cool completely. (The cake can be stored at room temperature, wrapped in plastic wrap, for up to 2 days.) TRIPLE-THREAT CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE PUDDING Sarabeth's version has two kinds of chocolate and is bolstered with cocoa to make it a triple threat to chocolate lovers � like me! Makes 6 servings (continued on page 49) I think of myself as more of a cook than a baker. I do bake however, and I have certain favorites such as preparing pastry dough for tarts or a pear tart tatin, a simple pound cake � to appease my husband's sweet tooth � and for an occasional bit of drama, a flourless chocolate cake. Then I received the book, Sarabeth's Bakery: From My Hands to Yours, by Sarabeth Levine (Rizzoli International, 2010), and am I ever inspired! Even if baking isn't your thing, Sarabeth's "The Bakers Pantry," with its clearly defined A-to-Z explanations of ingredients, yeast conversions, equipment and tools � and her explicit recipes � will no doubt inspire you, as it has me, to become a baker. Chapters include "Morning Pastries," "Beautiful Breads," "Everyday Cakes," "Pies and Tarts," "Party Cakes and Company," "Plain and Fancy Cookies," "Spoon Desserts," "Frostings, Fillings and Sweet Sauces" and so much more. In addition she leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination with her clear, fail-proof instruction.

Dan's Papers May 6, 2011 FOOD & DINING danshamptons.com Page 49 Silvia (continued from page 48) Review: Canal Cafe By Stacy Dermont I'm glad that I crossed the canal to enjoy the Canal Caf�'s specials. This restaurant is located right on the west side of the Shinnecock Canal in Hampton Bays, so you could boat there. The Canal Caf� maintains three slips and has access to slips within the surrounding marina when marina members are away. Co-owned by brothers Parker and Paul Hodges, the Canal Caf� is clearly a labor of love. The Hodges brothers worked together at the Barefoot Contessa for years. Each of them also worked in many restaurants before coming together to launch the Canal Caf� at this site, seven years ago. It's casual, it's friendly and it sure is popular. I ventured in on a Thursday night in April and found the bar and restaurant full of happy people. Shown to a high table near the bar, my server Loretta enthusiastically suggested I try some of Chef Paul Hodges' specials. There were many to choose from, listed on a chalkboard. Canal Caf� serves a lot of local tuna, scallops, monkfish and cod. Right this minute a school of striped bass is wending its way to the Canal Caf� � so they will probably appear on tonight's special board. The regular fare includes all that you'd look for in a fish house including fish (cod) and chips, a lobster roll (on ciabatta) and a Canal Burger. You gotta love what is spelled out in capital letters across the menu: ALL ENTREES COME WITH FRIES AND COLESLAW. A Fried Shrimp Hero on Toasted Ciabatta sounded delightfully naughty... Four kinds of water, over 16 kinds of beer, including Blue Point on tap. That's a good mix. When I asked Loretta to suggest a cocktail she said, "Well, we're known for our margaritas." Yum. I enjoyed a big green one before my meal. `Love that little salty versus sweet battle. Sweet always wins out in the end. I started with one of the homemade soups of the day, the cheese soup. Smooth and so good...I couldn't figure out what cheeses were at play. Parker Hodges filled me in: St.Andre, Manchego and Brie. Nice! For my entr�e I ordered the Blackened Scallops with a Gallo Pinto Risotto Cake and Jalapeno Slaw, Red Onion and Cilantro. Shinnecock scallops are always good but these were "like butta," the cilantro providing a perfect piquant foil. I'm not a big fan of classic risotto but rice and beans are another matter. Oh my, that risotto cake was hearty and tasty. For dessert I went with the flan. Prepared by Parker Hodges, this flan is a classic. A generous portion of slinky vanilla creaminess with just the right touch of caramel. All the desserts are made in-house. It shows. I plan to go back to the Canal Caf�. I've set a summer goal to try their homemade clam fritters with horseradish sauce, while seated outside on the patio listening to live music. And come fall, I promised Chef Paul I'd be back for his pumpkin cheesecake. The Canal Caf�, 44 Newtown Road, Hampton Bays. Open Thursday-Monday. Call 631-723-2155 for hours, site rentals and catering. 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 4 1/2 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate (no more than 62% cacao), finely chopped 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped 1 cup granulated sugar, divided 1/4 cup Dutch processed cocoa powder 3 tablespoons cornstarch 1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt 3 large eggs plus 1 large egg yolk at room temperature 1/4 cup heavy cream 1 tablespoon dark rum 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract Whipped cream and chocolate shavings, made with a vegetable peeler 1. Bring 1-inch water to a simmer in a medium saucepan over low heat. Place the butter in a wide heatproof bowl and melt the butter over the hot water. Add the semisweet and bittersweet chocolates and let stand, stirring often until melted and smooth. Remove the bowl from the heat. 2. Heat the milk and 1/3 cup of the sugar in a medium saucepan over low heat until steaming. Whisk the remaining 2/3 cup sugar with the cocoa, cornstarch and salt in a heatproof medium bowl. Add the eggs, yolk and cream and whisk until well combined. Gradually whisk in about half of the hot milk mixture. Pour the cocoa mixture into the medium saucepan. Bring to a full boil over medium heat, whisking often, being sure to reach into the corners of the saucepan. Reduce the heat to low and let boil for 30 seconds. The cornstarch and cocoa keep the eggs from curdling. 3. Remove from the heat. Add the melted chocolate mixture, rum and vanilla and whisk until combined. Pour into six 8-ounce glass jars or individual bowls. Cover each with a piece of plastic wrap, letting the plastic touch the surface of the pudding and pierce a few times with the tip of a small sharp knife. (If you like a skin on your pudding, do not cover it.) Let cool until tepid, about 1 hour. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. (The puddings can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.) 4. To serve, top each pudding with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Is it really a painting? If so, how did she get all that detail? How big is the original? How long did it take? It's really a fantastic piece of work and it would be very good to know more about it and the artist and how it came to be. Thanks. R. Gardner Go to danspapers.com to read Marion Weiss' "Honoring the Artist" column in that issue. --DR DON'T FENCE ME IN Dear Dan, As gasoline prices go up beyond $4 per gallon, the next time you get upset when filling your gasoline tank, please consider the public transportation alternative. Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Long Island Rail Road, Long Island Bus, Suffolk County Transit, Hampton Jitney, Huntington Area Rapid Transit, City of Long Beach, New York City Transit, New York City Department of Transportation along with various private operators provide such services. Try riding a local or express bus, commuter van, ferry, commuter rail or subway. In most cases, these transportation systems are funded with your tax dollars. All of these systems use less fuel and move far more people than conventional single occupancy vehicles. In many cases, your employer can offer transit checks, which help subsidize a portion of the costs. Utilize your investments and reap the benefits. You'll be supporting a cleaner environment and be less stressed upon arrival at your final destination. Sincerely, Larry Penner Great Neck Text to your friends while waiting. --DR MY HERO Dear Dan, I cheered your wonderful paper while reading "11 Years of Hell" about how East End fisherman have suffered at the hands of corrupt officials. Once again you've performed a public service. I once worked in Washington and know how many truly dedicated federal officials there are, but the officials you wrote about must be held accountable. Please follow up on this story so we know if they ever are. Marge Colloff Count on it. --DR MY OWN PRIVATE POTATO Hi Dan, I was amused by your recent piece, "Finicky," which inspired me to catalogue a few of my own food idiosyncrasies and rules that I've developed over the years. Best, Rachel Abrams Cottage Cheese/Cheese in General All cheeses must be room temperature, warm or hot, melted, or pre-melted, if you will. Same goes with butter, cream cheese and sour cream. Cold dairy is just a waste, robbed of the richness and creaminess that comes from warm fat. In particular, cottage cheese is excellent when heated, in either a toaster, a microwave, or if necessary, on a stovetop, where the curds and whey will separate, the former congealing into a toothsome substance, a poor man's mozzarella, if you will. For added protein, I substitute cottage cheese for cream cheese on a lox and bagel open face sandwich (which MUST have cucumber, in addition to tomato and onion). Send your letters to email@example.com (e-mails only, please) Warm Citrus/Fruit Before a Meal I must have a piece of fruit before each meal, preferably citrus. The sweet whets my appetite for the savory. But cold fruit hurts my teeth. As such, I heat or broil grapefruit and orange in the toaster oven. At times, I forget that I've put the citrus in to bake at 350, only to have my husband scold me when he finds the charred organic segments smoking up our kitchen an hour later. Raisins/Cookies Raisins are welcome in my life if they are chocolate covered, but not if they reside in cookies, muffins or challah. There is one exception: if they are dry, hard and shriveled (i.e. unplumped), I don't mind a few in my oatmeal cookie--which will have absolutely no spices--I want the pure oaty taste to come through! On the topic of cookies, most of the ones out there in the world are too sweet and overloaded with stuff. As I write this, I am eating--or dissecting--one of Sylvester's oatmeal cookies. To combat the sweetness, I have taken to alternating bites of the cookie with plain, cooked oatmeal leftover from yesterday's breakfast. By the way, when is someone going to take the plunge and sell a chocolate chip cookie without the chips? Based on my casual research, it's clear that everyone wants it. Everything Must Have Lettuce, Including Pizza I love vegetables any way they're prepared, but am a big believer that in order to truly get the daily servings of produce we need, we must incorporate greens at every meal, and in particular, hide them when eating rich, flavorful food. I frequently stack Romaine, raw spinach or alfalfa sprouts on top of pizza, toss them in with spaghetti and meatballs, and sneak them into moo shu, which other than cabbage, is lacking in the vegetable department, in my opinion. For extra protein, the same maneuvers can be done with tofu. On the Side There was a time in my late teens and early twenties that I had to have everything on the side--sauces, dressings, sandwich fixings. Once when I was in college and my parents were visiting, we dined at one of the Culinary Institute of America's restaurants. With no self-consciousness, I requested that each course be deconstructed in what, I am sure in hindsight, was a chef-maddening way. So for dessert, the waiter anticipated my next demand and brought me a cappuccino in two cups: one with espresso and milk, the other with foam. "Foam on the side," I presume, he said in his most obliging, trainee tone. Rebuttals/Concurrence Cereal Must be Soggy/Mushy In contrast to yours and most people's efforts to maintain crisp and crunch in their morning bowl, I must have my cereal soggy. When for hunger reasons I need to accelerate the sogging process, I heat up hot water in the tea kettle, pour just enough over the flakes or squares to cover but not submerge them, and only then, once they've softened and surrendered to the heat, cover with whole milk, or on special occasions, half and half. Zucchini I am totally with you on this--it's the only vegetable that causes a gag reflex in me. Exception: fried zucchini blossoms. The woman is as nutty as me but with more gourmet dishes. --DR POLICE BLOTTER Xbox A man in East Hampton reported that his Xbox had been stolen from his house along with all of his video games. The man no longer has an excuse to stay inside and play video games all day. His girlfriend is hoping that police catch the burglar, so that she may personally thank him. An Official Genius A woman in East Hampton called police after she was asked for her banking information by a strange man who told her that she just won millions of dollars in a contest. The woman was able to give a description of the man and a name. Shelter Island Old Man McGumbus, 97, and former World War II criminal interrogation specialist, was recovering from his recent double hip surgery in his home and injured his shoulder while holding a sign that read, "GO HOME HIPPIES!" which he was holding outside of a store on Shelter Island that just opened called, "Skinny Jeans and Graphic TShirts." Shocking A man in a Dodge Durango pulled up to a gas station in East Hampton, filled up with about 20 gallons of gas, and then just pulled away. The gas station attendant was able to give a description of the man and the vehicle. The man told the gas station attendant that he would come back with the money for the gasoline but he never did. The price for 20 gallons in East Hampton at today's gas prices is roughly $3.6 zillion. Copper Piping The manager of a popular artists retreat in Napeague called police to report that copper piping had been stolen from the property. Unbelievable A man was arrested after police found him engaged in a physical altercation with his ex-girlfriend in her driveway. The fight broke out over the man being upset about an upcoming court date...in which he is accused of punching his exgirlfriend in the stomach and on her legs. A witness at the scene tried to stop the man and ended up involved in a physical altercation with him that escalated until police arrived. Busted A Hampton Bays nightclub manager along with four bartenders were busted by police officers in a sting operation that caught the club serving alcohol to minors at the nightclub.
