They often miss things like the image on the program or print ad. That graphic arts is important to a play's conception and execution is one principle that this week's cover artist Brian Whitehill knows well. Often, it's the play's visual advertising which captures a spectator's eye and motivates him or her to buy a ticket. Even so, Whitehill's talent goes beyond creating a program cover or poster. His visions evoke a mood or idea which is often transcendent, which becomes a signature for the play or theatrical venue. Q: The cover is promoting the current play at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor and also Bay Street's gala. The image is charming and playful. What's behind these qualities? A: I wanted the image to be fresh, lively, never a chore to look at. It should be invigorating, I wanted it to communicate the Bay Street experience. Q: What "rules" do you use to accomplish this? A: The image should be simple; I hope the Wind Mill evokes that. It should be evocative, making people say, "I want to go there." The design needs to work fast. Q: You have said that the image is a metaphor. A: A designer is a translator. In this image, I wanted to capture the idea that the Bay Street experience is literally a breeze. It isn't just an illustration. The style is "pretty," but it could be cheap and crude if it were promoting a charity, for example. Q: You are also a set designer, which makes sense. What's your background like in that regard? A: I did the sets for Bay Street's play Home Fires and Psycho Beach Party, a play in New York. Q: How do you perceive the role of a set designer? What do you consider first? A: When I see a play, I like to see someone's choices. I ask myself questions: "What can I add as a designer to the play? What will the actors add? What does the audience need in order to appreciate the play?" I also like working with the same people. I know where they're going. Q: You know the answers to those questions in that case. What are you working on now? A: The Divine Sister will run Off-Broadway; I'm adding things because it was done before in a different version, but I want to keep in fresh, not belabored. Q: With all your experience, I can't help but wonder if you want to be a director. A: No. You have to multitask, to be a psychoanalyst, work with the playwright and the actors. Q: I assume you wouldn't want to work in film either for the same reasons. A: In film, you work on something for a long time, and you work with more people. In the theatre, you have more choices. Q: Who have been your influences, professionally speaking? A: Tony Walton, the set designer, and playwrights like Langford Wilson. I like seeing a body of work by one playwright. Q: How about being influenced by family members? A: I come from a heritage of designers and artists. My great, great grandfather was associated with the Hudson River School, and my mother was a watercolorist. Q: How about your growing up and art education? Were they also influential? A: I grew up in Newburgh, New York, by the water. That's why I like Sag Harbor so much. I went to Buffalo State College and was involved in a lot of student theatre productions. I did everything: direct, act, designed costumes. I saw theatre from all sides. I thought I had to be a fine artist to be a designer, but you don't have to be. Q: You love to travel and that experience has proved influential as well. A: I like to go to urban capitals and do what I do in New York but not work. I like to observe how different people do things according to their culture. For example, in Shanghi at the recent Expo, I watched the way people see theatre, how they respond, what they eat during intermission. Q: Obviously, that has informed your work in theatre. It's also obvious that you love the theatre, generally and Bay Street, particularly. A: Theatre goes back to primitive times, when people sat around and shared stories together in the dark. As far as Bay Street goes, it gives resonance to the community; it's part of the community. --Marion Wolberg Weiss Managing Editor: Susan M.

When They're Filming at the Beach, Do you Have to Leave? By Dan Rattiner The television series "Royal Pains" on NBC is now in its second season, and, as you may know, almost all of it is being filmed in the Hamptons. It follows the trials and tribulations of a young, handsome physician played by Mark Feuerstein who has been hired for the summer as a "concierge doctor" to personally attend to some very rich man. I ran into the crew filming a scene the other day. I was out on Main Beach in East Hampton, getting some sun, when some people with clipboards and cameras and these Styrofoam signs showed up at the back of the beach and set up right on the sand to shoot everybody. I took some pictures of this sign, which I reproduce here. As you can see, it is a ridiculous sign. They lean it against something. It tells you that by entering into this area you are giving up your rights not to appear in the Dan Rattiner's second memoir, IN THE HAMPTONS TOO: Further Encounters with Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Billionaires and Celebrities, is now available in hardcover wherever books are sold. The first memoir, IN THE HAMPTONS, published by Random House, is now available in paperback. Upcoming readings this Saturday: Sayre Park, Bridgehampton, 11 a.m.; Bookhampton, Main St. Southampton, 5 p.m. filming of the TV show. They will be filming here. You are welcome to stay. But that's the deal. I am not a lawyer but I say that unless you have people sign on the dotted line you haven't got anything, so this is just useless, although I suppose it is better than nothing. Also, it did make me wonder that since it is required that commercial filmmakers have a village permit to shoot in these parts, if the village had accepted the Styrofoam signs as "proof " of their intentions and gave them a carte blanche permit to just go anywhere they wanted to as long as they put the signs up. Like, in your bedroom, for example. These people with the clipboards, who also were wearing sunglasses and baseball caps and trying to look very cool, were also very serious. They barked orders back and forth to one another in a sort of code. The sunbathers seemed to not mind. They don't say to one another, for example, "Could you move that garbage can?" They wave and then shout "lose the garbage can," and the garbage can gets moved. Or they shout "five minutes." Or they shout "rolling." I got up after awhile and went over and asked them if the stars were here and they said no, it was just background stuff of the beach and all the goings on on it. I pointed to the sign and said that wasn't good enough for me, but if they wanted to shoot me, then the deal would be that they get one of the stars over who could make a diag(continued on page 28) Peter M.

OMG!! Lady Gaga is renting a house in the Hamptons for the summer. Here is a woman who has captured the nation at the age of 22. And she's done it the right way, on brains and style and talent. It's even more amazing when you consider she is not knock-yoursocks-off beautiful. It's quite an achievement. I want to warn her off Southampton Village, though. In all other villages in the Hamptons, you can walk around in whatever outrageous costume you wish. But in Southampton, there's a dress code. You can read about it on the signs as you enter the village, both on Hampton Road or on North Sea Road. The signs read PLEASE OBSERVE SOUTHAMPTON'S DRESS CODES. This is a woman who went to a baseball game to watch the Mets play, and midway through it, with the press apparently tipped off ahead of time--she uncovered herself and stood up wearing only sunglasses, a spangled bikini and a hat--and gave the middle finger to the world since she did not appear to be addressing anybody in particular with it, er, them. She held up two middle fingers. The next day, the photos of her in the New York dailies were shown on David Letterman, who commented that the purpose of her display was only to indicate that she too felt that the Mets should be #1. The dress code, by the way, requires all the people on the main streets of the Village of Southampton to be covered up from the top of the aureole (the nipple), to midway between the hip and the knee at all times. This, for Lady Gaga, would be a challenge. And so it is that Lady Gaga follows the lead of Madonna, who, after dipping a glass-highheeled-toe in the water, bought a horse farm out here last year. Another woman in the news this week is a Southampton socialite named Dana Hammond. Ms. Hammond is being sued for $4 million by a woman who answered a help wanted ad in the newspapers. Agnes Cybulski interviewed with Ms. Hammond, and was told the job paid $150 for an 8-hour day, involved housework and, oh, by the way, you have to take and pass an AIDS test to work for me. The prospective housekeeper has filed this lawsuit saying the request violates the New York State Civil Rights Act. I've asked around but nobody has been able to adequately explain to me how being asked to take an AIDS test might make one liable in a civil law suit. You can ask someone to take a breathalyzer test if you want to employ them and deny them employment if they flunk, you can deny employment to someone who is a convicted felon who wants to work for you if you don't feel comfortable with that, but you can't discriminate on the basis of age, sex, color, religion or a few other matters.

And nobody is noticing this. I shop online with a fellow in Arizona for certain beach supplies and though I do much of it on the computer, I had an occasion recently to talk with him--in order to return something that arrived broken which I had to send it back. "The address to send it to," he told me, "is garbled up by the Internet." Where I should send it was in the proper city where he lived, but the street address was different. "Don't ask me why," he said. "But if you want to get it here and you type in the proper street address, it gets sent to another address. This just started up last week." He then gave me this garbled street address that he said would work. A few days later a friend of mine told me he stopped getting his bills from MasterCard. It had been sent to him properly in the past. But now it was being delivered at another street address. "I spent a long time talking with Citibank about this," he said. "I hadn't gotten a bill from them in months. Sometimes I don't use that card for months and so don't get a bill for months. But then it came up as an alert from Equifax, the credit agency that MasterCard had filed a negative report against me. I had a balance of about $57 and hadn't paid it in months." He had tried to correct the address. He continued to not receive a bill. Finally he had the bill sent to his business address.

By Dan Rattiner All day Saturday, January 26 you can enjoy the exciting event known as the "Flight to Portugal." A wooden ski jump is erected at the top of the cliff at the Montauk Lighthouse, and hundreds of our local young men, in a display of courage and derring-do, drive old automobiles off it and into the sea 100 feet below. The idea is to see who can drive off the ramp the farthest, thereby getting the closest to Portugal, which is, after all, just over the horizon. Some contestants take running starts from a half mile away, others peel out from just at the bottom of the ramp. archives! Best Stories from the First 50 Years drivers as they head up the ramp and arch into the sear is something to behold. It is good to be able to report that in the first two years no one has even been injured in the "Flight to Portugal." The U.S. Coast Guard is on hand with both rescue boats and helicopters, another rescue crew is there from the Rescue Service in Westhampton, and there are police everywhere. No cash prize is offered to the winner, but at the end of the event, after he has been fished out of the sea and returned to the launch point, he is presented with a crown of laurel wreaths and is carried about for a while on the shoulders of his compatriots. If you want to drive off yourself--if you are angry at your automobile for example--you must register three weeks in advance.

In many places, from horizon to horizon, there was nothing but a great dome of blue sky and under it, other than the buildings, either sand dunes, ocean waves, beach grass or potato fields. And often there were great fogs, especially first thing in the morning, and if you were driving you'd slow down as the moisture in the earth, exposed to the sun, turned to steam, rose up and burned off. Before that, I had lived in a suburb of New York City that was all mowed lawns, maple trees and sidewalks. There was no fog. There was often blazing heat in the summertime. We stayed in the shade. It was quite a contrast. I think it is fair to say that some of the loss of many of our vistas has come about because of the increased number of people settling here. But I think there is more to it. For example, going down the Napeague Strip from Amagansett to Montauk, you could see over the land all the way to the water, to the ocean on one side and the bay on the other. Today, it is all still open land for the most part, but these views are now blocked because trees have grown tall. Consider Montauk Downs Golf Links. When it was built in the 1927, and when I played it in the 1950s and 1960s, it was almost entirely devoid of trees. It looked like a links in Scotland--undulating dunes and grass with an ocean or bay beyond. The Scots called that sort of land a downs. Today it is all sheltered under tall trees. They've dropped the term "links." But for some reason still call it a Downs. In Sagaponack, driving down Hedges Lane, you could see across the vast potato fields and to the spindrift over the crashing ocean waves. (The Lane was named after the Hedges family.) You could smell the sea and the fog resulting from it. And you could smell the pungent Bridgehampton loam. Today it is all lawns, trees, McMansions and hedgerows hemming you in and blocking the views. Undoubtedly this was the result of new populations of people coming to live on land that was once potato farms. Today Hedges Lane means Hedges Lane. In Shinnecock Hills in the 1950s, you could see almost from the canal to downtown. Since then, the foliage has all grown up. The same is true along the Old Montauk Highway in Hither Hills. Back then you could look to the south down the cliff face a 130 feet and see surf crashing on the beach. Today, the overgrown foliage blocks the view entirely. There is an old dirt road in Montauk near the Walking Dunes north of the highway called (continued on page 48) MY TAHOE GOES 80 MILES ON A GALLON OF GAS By Dan Rattiner A new gas station has opened up across the Montauk Highway and just to the west of our offices in Bridgehampton. I went there the other day to fill up the tank of my car. It takes regular, which they had at $3.04. They also have other more expensive grades of gas, which go up to $3.44 a gallon. And they also have diesel fuel. These are about the prices you pay at most stations in this area at this time. I was intrigued, however, by a sandwich sign they have out front of this establishment just adjacent to the highway. It says FlexFuel, $2.50 a gallon. So I went inside and asked about it. "FlexFuel is for cars that take FlexFuel," the manager said. "It's 85% Ethanol and 15% gasoline. You don't use it unless you have a car that takes FlexFuel." The thing is that right on the back of my Tahoe, there is a metal sign put there by Chevrolet that reads FlexFuel. When I bought this new Tahoe in the fall of 2008 from Buzz Chew Chevrolet, the main thing about it was its great stability when driving in four-wheel drive on the beach. I drive on the beach a lot. There was also the matter of its price. The country was in full panic from the sudden economic collapse that fall. They were remaindering brand new 2008 Tahoes that retailed at $55,000 for about (continued on page 26) DAN'S PAPERS, June 25, 2010 Page 26 www.danshamptons.com Tahoe (continued from previous page) $30,000. They just wanted to get them off the lot. The car has wonderful features. A button lets you move the side mirrors in and out the way my Uncle Matty used to show us how he could wiggle his ears in and out. It's great for getting right up close and personal with your rural mailbox. It has a TV on the ceiling for the passengers in the back. It has a built in GPS, a moon roof and a message center where you could, for example, monitor the air pressure in your tires. I had seen the word FlexFuel on the back. I had not asked about it at the time, but I did note that on the message center, you could get an instant reading of your miles per gallon at that exact moment. If you had the foot down, it would read 2 mpg, if you were coasting it would read 42 mg, of you were just sitting idling it would read 0 mpg. There was also on the message center a way to see whether you were using four cylinders or eight. When not pulling hard, the vehicle kicked out four cylinders for a moment to save gas. I figured that was what was meant by FlexFuel. But since, overall, the Tahoe was guzzling an average of 13.1 miles per gallon, none of this was helping much, I really thought that perhaps FlexFuel was just a marketing tool, something on the back of your car to tell passersby that they were really trying, and so please do not key the car.

I still do. Now it is three years later, and I see that you could use this vegetable-based liquid to power cars that took FlexFuel. Was this just a coincidence in a name? Or could I really use this stuff. "If it says FlexFuel," the manager said, "you can use FlexFuel." But I was still not sure. No sense filling up with a tank of vegetables and finding out, oh no, that was just a coincidence in the name, and now I've ruined the engine. So I called Joe at Buzz Chew on my cell phone. "Absolutely, you can use it," he said. "And it pollutes a lot less. But I do want to tell you that it goes through your car faster than regular gas does. You might get lower miles per gallon." "Like how much?" "Depends how you drive. Try a tank, see how it goes." I decided that unless it was a complete disaster, I'd move over to FlexFuel. Think about it. This uses very little gasoline. It uses vegetables. If the well in the Gulf had exploded and vegetables had started washing up on the beaches, it would be no big deal. It would be a celebration. It would feed the hungry. So I filled up with it. The tank took 20 gallons, only three gallons of which were gasoline. Then, I rewound the "trip" distance indicator on my control panel to 0, stepped on the gas and drove around as I normally did. When the tank read half empty, I did hear a funny tapping noise coming from under the hood, but it soon went away. After that, when it got back to empty (I only drive the Tahoe about 150 miles a week), I filled it up again and did a little math. I had driven the Tahoe 240 miles on 20 gallons of the fluid I had put into my tank. But only 3 gallons of that was gasoline. I was driving 80 miles on a gallon of gas. This was better than a Prius, better than a Hybrid, better than any commercial vehicle on the road. An old gas guzzler, now a first prize winner. Who knew this would happen? I am sold on FlexFuel. I am thinking of putting a sign on the back bumper of my car reading THIS CAR GOES 80 MILES ON A GALLON OF GAS. Because it does. I intend to use FlexFuel from now on. I don't know yet where there are other places on the East End that sell FlexFuel, but I intend to find out. The country is slowly coming around to using this product. An early first rush did put a dent in the availability of corn and other vegetables in this country. But production increased and the problem went away. I should note that today Argentina is using FlexFuel in almost all the vehicles sold in that country. And I am here to also report that the increased burning of this product is cancelled out by the lower cost. It does not put a bigger dent in your wallet. And I do have to say that that smell of broccoli does go away after the first drive around the block. (That was a joke.) It smells fine, really. DAN'S PAPERS, June 25, 2010 Page 27 www.danshamptons.com Who's Here By Donna Avedon At one time, picture frames were considered disposable and were regarded as the poor cousins of historic paintings and drawings. Most historic frames were dated and signed by the makers, many of whom were artists themselves. An artist's original frame was often replaced when a painting was sold to a new owner. Art patrons and collectors in the 19th and 20th centuries who did not appreciate the beauty of authentic frames, reframed the artwork and discarded many of those valuable originals. There is now a movement afoot to honor the frame as well as the art it contains. Montauk resident Eli Wilner, the world's leading frame dealer, restorer and appraiser, is largely responsible for today's growing interest in historic frames. His company, Eli Wilner & Co. has produced frames that have graced the likes of Renoir, Monet, Picasso, Sargent, Eakins, Church, Bierstadt, Hartley and O'Keeffe. His Alist clientele includes the White House, Sotheby's and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, among a host of other notables. Born in Israel in 1956, Wilner moved to the United States as a young child. At the tender age of six, he became aware of the impact a frame has on a work of art. "My great-uncle was a well-known art collector," he said, "and he would put my childish pastels in antique frames and hang them alongside his Modiglianis and Chagalls. It took me years to realize I wasn't a great master, but I learned very early on how a perfectly, the viewer does not see the painting and the frame separately. "You just see one object," he said. Wilner went to Brandeis University, where he received a B.A. in Fine Arts. From there, he went on to Hunter College, where he earned a Master of Arts in 1978, and promptly went to work for an art framer in New York City, where his education continued. While a guest on the "The Martha Stewart Show," Wilner explained the difference between a replica frame and a reproduction. He said the expert workmanship and exquisite materials he uses for replication are identical to those of the original frames. He pointed out that the frames his company produces take as long to make as the originals once did. "It's fantastic to be able to keep these old artisanal traditions alive," he said. "I think of frames as sculptures that hang on the wall, and there's a new appetite out there for handcrafted one-offs. What we do is the antithesis of mass production." Wilner's keen eye and sensitivity to the original work of art drew Christie's to choose Eli Wilner & Co. to produce a frame suitable for the exhibition and sale of Picasso's masterpiece, "Nude, Green Leaves and Bust." "We were contacted to locate a frame appropriate for the painting and through our extensive inventory, we carefully selected a period frame that complimented the style of the painting," said Wilner. The painting, speedily painted (continued on next page) Donna Avedon Eli Wilner, Framer frame can transform the way we look at a picture." The importance of frames had diminished since the early 1900s. "People forgot frames," Wilner said. "They wanted to take frames off in order to see the painting more." He said that his philosophy is that when a frame fits a painting The Popper Dental Team Makes Us Smile! HAVE YOU LOST OR ARE YOU LOSING YOUR TEETH? If so, you may be a candidate for Dental Implants.

Speaking of his approach to such projects, Wilner said, "We always emulate historical precedents. I believe the artists' intent is paramount, which is why, for the last 30 years, we constantly research the correct framing style for specific artists." I recently visited Wilner at his 10,000-squarefoot restoration studio in Long Island City. He greeted me at the factory door and graciously gave me a grand tour of his impressive factory. Master craftsmen, carvers and gilders were creating historically accurate replicas of some of the most magnificent frames I have ever seen. His team, led by master wood-carver Felix Teran, has just completed a three-year project for the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The re-creation of a 3,000-pound frame for one of the bestknown works in American art, Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze's monumental 1851 canvas, "Washington Crossing the Delaware." The iconic painting hung in the Met with a lackluster frame for many years. Then four years ago, an archivist came across a long-lost 144-year-old Matthew Brady photograph of Leutze's painting with original frame. "For 20 years, I have dreamt of creating this frame for the Met," he said. "This is actually the most requested picture in the museum, and the one every school kid sits in front of at one time or another, so it's about as prestigious as it gets." The frame's opening size is over 12 x 21 feet, and is surmounted by an elaborate carving displaying an eagle, flags, ribbons and an arsenal of musketry and other regalia. The gilders used about 12,500 3.5-inch square sheets of gold leaves in the tedious gilding process. "We've recreated and carved the original design from scratch," Wilner continued. This frame will be the focal point of the renovated American Wing at The Metropolitan Museum, and is slated to be unveiled at the opening in the spring of 2011. Wilner's enthusiasm is not limited to producing masterful replicas. Eli Wilner & Co. has just introduced the first-ever framing app for the iPhone. Subscribers can frame their masterpieces in a virtual Wilner frame. For just under $10 dollars for 103 frame images, the user of the app can "surround their masterpieces with masterpieces." Photographers of all ages can rotate, crop, expand, or convert their photos and then select a masterpiece frame to finish the work. The "framed images" can be printed out and placed in scrapbooks, posted on Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr or sent as an email to family and friends. Eli Wilner & Co is joining forces with a number of established non-profit charities and organizations for fundraising purposes. Wilner frames will donate up to 50% of the net sales of the private label App to the organization. In addition, the charities will be holding individual contests for a chance to win an original Eli Wilner frame. When I asked Wilner what his greatest fantasy is, he answered: to re-frame the Mona Lisa. "It has a lovely frame but it's a bit overdone," he said. Dan Rattainer DAN'S PAPERS, June 25, 2010 Page 29 www.danshamptons.com By T.J. Clemente The line is long, they only take cash, the place is so full that the fire marshal is standing by, waiting to pull the plug. Then, after the season, you read that the nightclub is closed and filing for bankruptcy, with back rent, liquor bills and payroll taxes in arrears. Welcome to the world of Hamptons Night Clubs, where the young crowd plays, pays and stays on weekend nights. Earlier this month Hamptons Resorts & Hotels, which operates the Atlantic, the Bentley and the Capri, filed for bankruptcy and according to owner David Waksman, the bankruptcy puts him in a stronger position to sort through his financial difficulties. Reports say the owner's hand was forced because his creditors weren't banks, and would not renegotiate terms. Some might say they were trying to take advantage of the bad economy. Others might say the creditors wanted to get a handle on all that cash. Somewhere between lies the truth. A bankruptcy filing gives Waksman and coowner Ross Weiner more control. Waksman reportedly said that the hotels will remain open and operating this summer. Bob Corton, a longtime Southampton resident and former owner of Sophie's--a hip East Village bar that is still open until 4 a.m. seven days a week-- said when he owned I Santi and later the Deerfield Inn in Water Mill, the restaurant hemorrhaged money. The last year Corton changed the name to Lulu's and made it a club bar. Even though he eventually had to close down due to debts he accumulated during the years running the restaurants, Corton said, "Lulu's made almost enough money to make it... but the debts were too big." Corton gave me a list of hot spots that have come and gone in Southampton over the years--places like Conscience Point (of Lizzie Grubman backing over patrons fame), Le Mans, Danceteria, the Star Room and Jet. I mentioned the annual rebranding of Lily Pond in East Hampton. Corton said he believes the number one reason the places go out of business is, "the caliber of the integrity of the individuals who run the clubs." They take the cash, they don't pay payroll taxes, rent nor liquor bills, yet drive expensive cars, wear desingner suits--and many know about costly vices some indulge in. But, all judgments aside, Corton sees it objectively "The problem is where the cash goes," he said. "If the business is losing it depends on who's getting the cash, the investors or ..." Waksman's journey is not a flash in the pan. His commercial involvement on the East End started 13 years ago. In 1997, along with Jeff Salaway, he closed on The Atlantic for around a reported $1 million. He later paid $2.3 million for the Bentley and $1.3 million for the Capri-Pink Elephant, where Waksman employed as a hostess Rachel Uchitel, who was later alleged to be one of Tiger Woods' mistresses. Corton admitted he knew no details of the recent bankruptcy but said all too often the problem is "greed." Cash disappears. Taxes aren't paid. Many laugh when remembering BUSINESS Givin' You the Rise & Fall of Cash Happy Nightclubs the Studio 54 stories of millions of dollars of uncounted cash still in huge garbage bags stored above the office roof at that infamous nightclub. A tennis friend who worked there way back said, "They just couldn't count the money. They used to get tired. They just bagged it up and stored above the roof panels that had the lighting--it was that out of hand." The truth is, it takes a certain breed to live the late-late night scene, to survive the vices of alcohol, drug use, flashy people and certain trouble. Corton says, "Some owners thrive in that environment--in fact they're a product of it." I think of Yogi Berra's great line, "Nobody goes there anymore; it's too crowded." But those who do wait on line, pay cash money to get in and, last I saw, don't get a receipt. Imagine a paid receipt to each night clubber in the Hamptons on a weekend night? All that paper and trees being saved! I asked Corton about the short season, the high rents, and the weekend-oriented business, he said, "It doesn't matter. They make money. It's what happens to that money."

I know where Mitchell Lane is. But the woman who called me said "if you use the GPS don't type in Mitchell Lane. Type in Mitchell's Lane. The GPS doesn't know Mitchell Lane." Until these things happened, I thought I was the only one, and I thought it was because of the ancient and charming name of the street that I live on in East Hampton, which is Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road. I have written about my problems with this long street address in this newspaper in recent months. The people typing in the name sometimes find they do not have enough room in the boxes they type it into on their order forms. So they take to abbreviating it. My driver's license street address is 28 Threemilehbrcrkrd, for example. About three months ago, however, things began to go further haywire. A refrigerator repairman drove down my four-mile long street and zipped right by my house on his way to where his GPS was telling him my house was. The GPS had defaulted my street to another street name. Lost, he called me, and I had some time getting him to believe that his GPS was wrong. Well, maybe it was just that GPS. But when the same thing happened with a landscaper, I looked into it. All GPSs do not know there is a Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road anymore. Tell LIPA...

Apparently, some Silicon Valley type deduced that people were fallible. They sometimes would type something in wrong. So this genius took it upon himself to write a program to "fix" this. If you go to UPS today and give them a name to send something to which is not in their computer, I am telling you they will find something they think is what you really meant to write and send it there. I am here to tell you that if they type it in correctly and press the button to print the label out, it prints out Three Mile Harbor Drive rather than Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road. They don't even know this is happening. This is a disaster. There's a woman named Pat Lillis who runs Elsa's Ark, an animal rescue service in Springs, who partially makes her living by doing house watching for weekenders. She watches 28 Three Mile Harbor Drive. She tells me a lot of my Fed Ex and UPS packages and regular mail are delivered to my mailbox personally by her after being dropped off at the other location. "You owe me," she says. "Mention Elsa's Ark in your paper." So here I am doing just that. But now this problem keeps just getting bigger and bigger. One of my bank statements has begun getting delivered over there. I know, I know, bank online, you say. But let me tell you I think this is turning into an alarming situation and it is going to have a great effect on us if we don't do something about it. People are going to be driving all over the place unable to find one another. Communications will not take place. Transportation will not take place. Then, things will, slowly, insidiously, break down. Am I describing something that would be done not by a cheerful techie but by a terrorist? I am sounding the alarm. I would like to write a letter to Steve Jobs, to Bill Gates and to Sergey Brin because I think one of them might know how to fix this, but how do I know that their addresses aren't being messed with by now? Wouldn't that be the first thing terrorists would think of to do, to foul up these great men so they would remain forever unaware of this problem? And so I write this article and ask that if you are experiencing this breakdown as well-- caused apparently by flawed outsourcing people in the Philippines or India or Pakistan (Pakistan!!) who don't communicate too well and foul things up in the first place--let me know. As for me, I have found a workaround. Sometimes when I encounter an agent who can't fit the full name of my street into the little boxes, I tell them to try "Three Mile Harbor HC Road." If it fits, that works. I get the stuff that way. It is, apparently, a backdoor workaround to Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road. This road, Three Mile Harbor HC Road, exists, though it does not. Use it if you want to send me a letter. (Do NOT send me things at 28 Three Mile Harbor Road either.

The following is the first full length Flight to Portugal story, which appeared in Dan's Papers on February 8, 1991 By Dan Rattiner This article is addressed to prospective advertisers. But regular readers will not be disappointed if they eavesdrop. You know how newspapers tell you that if you advertise you will get a response? Well, what I am about to tell you about Dan's Papers is so extraordinary you will find it hard to believe. Something appeared in Dan's Papers on October 5, 1990. It appeared once. It never appeared again. And now, three months later, the phone is getting knocked off the hook here at Dan's Papers about what we wrote on October 5, 1990. I told you this would be hard to believe. The something that appeared on October 5 was not advertisement. It was editorial. It was part of an article entitled Little Known Winter Holidays in that issue telling about all these reasons why people ought to be coming out to the Hamptons in the cold of January and February. And it was, all of it, made up. There was the Real Estate Equinox on January 6, for example, which marked the bottom of the real estate market on the East End ,and when the real estate brokers would WE THINK OUR GRADUATES ARE ALL STARS.

JOE NATHAN I n practically every field of endeavor, you'll find Stony Brook University alumni who have reached the pinnacle of their professions: stars in medicine, law, engineering, the arts, research, and academics--as well as the all-star closer for the Minnesota Twins. Why have so many outstanding pro fessionals emerged from a single university? Our students are taught by world-class faculty, surrounded by highly motivated, exceptionally intelligent students, on a diverse, inclusive campus. They have access to all the resources of a major research institution but still get the nurturing attention of a small college environment. All this at a fraction of the cost of comparable universities. Although all of our students may not come out of Stony Brook with a fastball in the high 90s, they will be ready to make a major contribution, no matter what league they're in.

There was the Eel Festival on January 12 and 13 where native girls would hold contests using eels as jump ropes. And there was the Houses From the Outside House Tour on January 20 where people would trudge through the snow and peer through the windows, or anyway try to peer through windows of boarded-up summer homes. Certainly it was obvious to anybody that all this was made up. Or so one would think. One of the items way down at the bottom was entitled " Flight to Portugal." Here is what I wrote: "All day Saturday, January 26, you can enjoy the exciting event known as the Flight to Portugal. A wooden ski jump is erected at the top of the cliff at the Montauk Lighthouse, and hundreds of our local young men, in a display of courage and derring-do, drive old automobiles off it and into the sea 100 feet below. The idea is to see who can drive off the ramp the farthest, thereby getting the closest to Portugal, which is, after all, just over the horizon. Some contestants take running starts from a half mile away. Others peel out from just at the bottom of the ramp. This is the third year this event has taken place. The cars, many of them from the police impound area, are gaily painted. It is not beyond anybody to take a bet or two. And the roar of the engine and the war whoop of the drivers as they head up the ramp and arch into the sea is something to behold. It is good to be able to report that in the first two years no one has been injured in the Flight to Portugal. The U. S. Coast Guard is on hand with both rescue boats and helicopters and another crew is there from the Rescue Service in Westhampton, and there are police everywhere. No cash prize is offered to the winner, but at the end of the event, after he has been fished out of the sea and returned to the launch point, he is presented with a crown of laurel wreaths and is carried around for a while on the shoulders of his compatriots. If you want to drive off yourself--if you are angry at your automobile, for example--you must register three weeks in advance. To attend the event, just drive out to the lighthouse anytime before 11 a.m. that Saturday. Be sure you don't drive up any ramp at the end." * * * The calls began coming right about Christmas time. They were answered, almost every one of them, by Jollyn Erickson, our office manager who manages an entire office staff in the summertime, but who sits alone by the switchboard in the wintertime fielding the smaller volume of phone calls we get in the off season. "At first I didn't quite know what it was about," she told me. " An airplane flight? To Portugal? But then I remembered the article. The spoof. All the callers wanted to know the same thing.

I gave it to them. But I also told them that it was all made up.'' It wasn't until after New Year's that Erickson realized her call volume was so large she ought to keep track of it. She remembered one before Christmas, two afterwards. Then there were the ones in early January. All the callers wanting to put this exciting event they had read about in October in their 1991 calendars. "Maybe it's someone pulling OUR leg," I suggested. "Maybe it's just the same person over and over." "I thought of that too, but it isn't. The people are all different," she told me. Beginning about January 10, we were two weeks away from this wacko Flight to Portugal. The calls were now coming more frequently. "I really began to lose it, telling people the same thing over and over," Erickson said. "People had very different reactions to having been taken in. Some of them didn't want to believe there was no such event. One woman insisted that there had to be this event and she told me that since I wouldn't tell it to her straight she would call the Montauk Chamber of Commerce. What I did after this, I am sorry to say, was to tell callers it was a hoax but sure, they could call the Montauk Chamber of Commerce if they didn't believe me."

But first I ought to tell you that on January 17, just a week before the "event," Erickson got a call from ABC's World News Tonight, from the office of Peter Jennings. "It was from his secretary," Erickson said. "Apparently, they were planning to send out a crew to video all the goings on for the news program. This was going to be nationwide." Well, sure. Daring young local men plummeting 100 feet in their cars into the sea, there to be rescued from the freezing cold waters by the Coast Guard helicopters. What a fine time. Erickson told this secretary that inasmuch as Peter Jennings lives in Sagaponack, she thought he would know better. This, she told me, didn't get her any new gold stars from the lady on the other end of the telephone. Oh, well. And then yesterday, Erickson got a call from Virginia Galotta at the Montauk Chamber of Commerce. She was a volunteer, Virginia said. The Chamber office was closed in the wintertime and she had agreed to have the calls coming into the Montauk Chamber of Commerce forwarded to her home so people calling in could have a live person to talk to at the other end. She had not, however, bargained upon THIS. She asked Erickson to stop referring people to the Montauk Chamber of Commerce about the Flight to Portugal and also, to please provide her with whatever information would be useful in dealing with these callers. Erickson sent her a copy of this newspaper published so long ago. If she didn't like Flight to Portugal, perhaps she'd like The Eel Festival or The Real Estate Equinox. Apparently, however, there is something that has captured the imagination with this Flight to Portugal. Perhaps it is the idea of the continuous air to sea rescues, or the destruction of these old cars, or perhaps it is just the idea of these young men, flushed with excitement, toweling themselves dry in the bitter January wind before consenting to a television interview. Since business has been in a slump lately, and since obviously this Flight to Portugal will attract huge crowds, I would like to suggest that we actually go ahead with it, that we perhaps reschedule it for a warmer time of the year, maybe in late April when our drivers would have a better chance for survival, and when there is lots of time, between now and then, to print tickets, put out posters and pump the thing up.

That is the concept behind the Swim Across America (SAA) event planned for Fourth of July weekend. The first of its kind to be held on the East End, SAA will offer half-mile, one mile and three-mile (5K) distance options across Gardiner's Bay in Amagansett. Swimmers of all levels are invited to join in. The event is being run by the East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue Squad (EHVORS) and will benefit Fighting Chance, a local cancer resource center in Sag Harbor, as well as several important cancer research facilities, such as Memorial Sloan-Kettering. This exciting event is in its "inaugural year," according to Gerry Oakes, chair of the Nassau/Suffolk County Committee of Swim Across America. SAA is a national non-profit that organizes swims everywhere from the Golden Gate Bridge to Boston Harbor to raise money for a multitude of charities that work to treat and develop a cure for cancer. Since the organization's establishment in 1987, its events have raised over $30 million. Swimmers of all levels, from "master swimevent with be donated to Fighting Chance, a resource on the East End that provides cancer patients with completely free services, including counseling and support groups, that provide significant aid to them and their families during this difficult time in their lives. Oakes, who has been involved with SAA for 10 years, explained that all of the non-profit's events are organized in grassroots fashion, run by local committees. The Nassau/Suffolk County Committee holds its largest annual event in Glen Cove (on August 14 this year) called Sound to the Cove Open Water Swim, along with several additional smaller swims throughout the year. "It's about people who are lucky enough to be healthy, helping people who aren't," Oakes explained. But with a significant portion of the Long Island Committee's extensive annual funds being donated to Fighting Chance, Oakes felt that it was important to have an event out here to "give East Enders an opportunity to raise funds." (continued on page 42) Swim Across America entrants mers and competitive youngsters" to the more recreational athletes, are invited to partake in these events, as long as they can fundraise a specific amount of money that will then be donated to the local chapter's chosen charities. For the race this weekend, the minimum fundraising donation is $500 for adults ages 16 and over, and $300 for individuals under 16. For those concerned about how to raise this much money, SAA has tried to make it as simple as possible: Swimmers are able to set up personal websites that allow family and friends to contribute directly online with a credit card.

Gyrotonic Studio 37 Bulls Run, East Hampton 631-329-0461 As a new business columnist, I have written about every new business in the Hamptons for the past 15 years. The Gyrotonic Studio is one I personally have never heard of until now. Founder Ellen Mullman has just pURchased a brand new "Elite" Gyrotonic Tower and is teaching Gyrotonic "one-on-one, in a very private studio, by appointment only." With Pilates also on the agenda, she now offers even more with this addition of Gyrotonic. If you haven't tried spiraling, she would be happy to teach you what it is all about. While Pilates works vertically, Gyrotonic decompresses joints and lengthens the body. Though there are many Pilates options in the Hamptons, there are very few Gyrotonic teachers out east and Ellen is proud to be one of them.

Alec Baldwin, Sam Underwood, Georgia Warner, Tuck Milligan, Taylor Proffitt, Jp Qualters and Mark Larson mingled with fans and savored hors d'oeuvres, paired with an exclusive wine tasting by Long Island's Wolffer Estate Vineyard. British import Underwood, who plays Alan Strang opposite Baldwin's character, Martin Dysart, happily entertained guests as he sifted through Tahari's Men's Fall 2010 collection and modeled a series of jackets throughout the evening. Sam told me, "Equus has been a dream role since I was very young and first read it." The 22-year-old actor, who took a leave from an acting program in London to perform and train in NYC, admitted, "It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I can always go back to London." As the clock struck half past six, Underwood quickly peeled off his Tahari ensemble and shuffled out the front door onto Main Street with the rest of the cast, who hightailed it a few blocks over to Guild Hall to perform the 8 p.m. show. You only have a few more weeks to experience Baldwin, Underwood and rest of the talented cast in action. Equus runs Tuesdays to Saturdays through July 3. You may have seen a flurry of activity around the Ross School in East Hampton all week, thanks to the hands on staff and volunteers at the Retreat, including Jennifer Palmer, Development Director and Development Associate, Heather Fay, Ann Chwatsky, Arlene Slavin and Eileen Ekstract, who have been working non-stop all year to make sure every single detail is in place for their 15th Annual "Artists Against Abuse Gala," this Saturday, June 26, to benefit The Retreat's FREE domestic violence services! Jeffery Friedman, Executive Director of the Retreat, told me, "Support for this event means more to us than ever before. Domestic violence services requests are up by 56%, all the while funding continues to be cut or eliminated." Friedman and his team are pulling out all the stops this Saturday to ensure this year's gala is a success, including a live art auction, where you can bid on original artworks by such notable artists as: Louise Bourgeois, Peter Bynum, James Croak, Roberto Dutesco, Jimmy Ernst, April Gornik, John Hultberg, Bryan Hunt, Claes Oldenburg, Kryn Olson, Robert Rauschenburg, Denise Regan, Dan Rizzie, Frank Stella, John Torreano, Michael Viera and Gavin Ziegler. And with the help of Jarrell Entertainment, DJ MICHAEL will keep the beats going all night. Plus, Shannen Doherty is the official celebrity host for this Saturday evening.

Dan's Papers' Rose Marie Oliviero caught up with her to talk about her new alliance with the store. Dan's Papers: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Ivanka: New York City's buildings and architecture always inspired me. My desire to launch a jewelry collection came from my love of structure and architecture along with my appreciation for style and the classics. Also, I've always had my eyes set on working in the Trump real estate business--I currently hold the VP of Acquisitions and Development position at Trump Org. Also, along with my brothers, I'm leading the charge on the Trump Hotel Collection. Dan's Papers: What do you do for downtime and when do you find the time for it? Ivanka: I like to have dinner with my husband and friends or play golf. Anything relaxing works for me. Dan's Papers: What made you decide to start your own jewelry collection? Ivanka: My mother's legacy jewelry collection always inspired me. And my love for the classic aesthetic helped propel my vision. I realized the luxury fine jewelry market was missing a fresh, young design approach. That's where my jewelry line's vision of "Rock Tradition" plays a vital role--it's a modern twist on jewelry's most estate role at the Trump Org and continuing to develop my jewelry business. I will also be adding extensions to my lifestyle brand with handbags and shoes. My footwear and handbag lines will be launching in Spring 2011. Dan's Papers: What's the best advice you can give to young women looking to succeed in today's business world? Ivanka: Be prepared...for interviews, meetings, discussions, everything. Work hard. Create a strong and consistent identity--your name and reputation are your best assets. Dan's Papers: Where's your favorite place to eat in The Hamptons? Ivanka: I love the Blue Parrot! Ultimately my favorite place to eat is in the home of friends though. Dan's Papers: What's your favorite vacation spot? Ivanka: I love to travel. My favorite places have been the Italian Riviera, Hawaii, Czech Republic, Paris, Chilean Patagonia. And of course I love the Hamptons and Palm Beach. Dan's Papers: Are you excited about launching your jewelry collection at London Jewelers? Ivanka: I am very excited about the partnership. The Udells share my vision of a sophisticated, smart customer who is looking for ageless investment pieces. I think my jewelry will work seamlessly for their Hamptons' customers. The collection at London Jewelers important classic. Dan's Papers: What type of audience
