Buzz Schwenk Memorial Hwy, Turn Left By Dan Rattiner There's a move afoot to change the name of County Road 39 in Southampton. This is a good thing. In a land where you have Gin Lane, Abraham's Path and Two Holes of Water Road, there should not be an artery, particularly a main artery, with a name as mundane as County Road 39. The plan to change the name of this road is being proposed in the Suffolk County Legislature by our local legislator Jay Schneiderman of Montauk. I was very curious to see what he was going to come up with. I was very disappointed to hear that the new name he plans to propose for this artery is the "Edwin M. `Buzz' Schwenk Memorial Highway." Now I personally knew Schwenk. He was a very nice man. Part of the family that owned the Schwenk Dairy Farm in Southampton, he went into politics, not as a candidate, but as a behindthe-scenes power broker for the Republican Party. He headed up the Suffolk County Republican Party for awhile as I recall. And after that, he sent out an occasional newsletter, usually gently supporting business and progress and expansion as a way to prosperity for this community. As a newspaper publisher, I didn't always 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. If the County's really stuck on the idea of a long multi-syllabled name, I have a few other options to consider. agree with what he wrote. But I did find him amenable to debate about this and that. He was open-minded. As I said, he was personally a very nice guy. But "go up Moses Lane and make a left on the Edwin M. Buzz Schwenk Memorial Highway and you'll find the Shinnecock Golf Club about two miles down after turning right on St. Andrews Road?" Or "come to the end of the Sunrise Highway and just go straight on the Edwin M. Buzz Schwenk Memorial Highway until the end when you have to turn left so as not to go on Flying Point Road?" Moses, St. Andrews, Sunrise, Flying Point--all are fine, highly treasured names in this community. As nice as Schwenk was, having County Road 39 be replaced by Edwin M. Buzz Schwenk Memorial Highway is not a step in the right direction. I do think there are some politics behind this proposal. Eastern Long Island has been a largely Republican bastion, at least until the Presidential elections of 2008. Jay Schneiderman, who was a Republican legislator right until the run up to the 2008 elections, renounced his party and ran, successfully, as an Independent that year. After the election, which swept in a lot of Democrats, the Republicans got around to requesting that the late Schwenk be honored in Southampton in one way or another. A school might be named for him. Or perhaps a bridge or a municipal building. His name was proposed. The Democrats blocked every request. Now, with the wind blowing the other way, Schneiderman, perhaps desiring to mend some fences, even though remaining as an Independent, is proposing Schwenk's name for County Road 39. I do consider myself to be something of an expert in naming some of our local roads. For about 30 years, from 1970 to 2000, this newspaper produced a hand-drawn folding roadmap of the Hamptons. I personally drew it. Endeared by the wonderful road names, I found some dirt roads without names and so gave them names in keeping with the local tradition. Thus you had Lost Cow's Journey which meandered through the Northwest on a track that had no name. There was another dirt road I named Lois Lane, and still another I named Jeep's Folly. People enjoyed the rustic names I made up I think, or at least they told me that they did. In the end, as these tracks and dirt roads got developed though, the Town gave them real names and all my made-up names disappeared, except one. Today, you will find a road called Werewolf Path up in Noyac not far from Deerfield Road. I named it that. It stuck. It's on signs, it's entered in the town tax rolls and you will find it using GPS. It's probably the only permanent change I (continued on page 16) Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 danshamptons.com Page 12 PIANO CLEARANCE 2010 FALL PIANO RENTAL RENT TO OWN 100% TOWARDS PURCHASE YAMAHA, STEINWAY AND MORE If you can't trust, The Carpetman, to clean your carpet, who can you trust...

Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 danshamptons.com Page 13 Mountain Sent Packing RH Town Board has had Enough of Billion Dollar Theme Park By Dan Rattiner Years from now, historians may declare that an overeager newspaper editor at the Riverhead News-Review was personally responsible for the collapse of a proposed $1 billion, 750-acre resort development in that town, the centerpiece of which would have been a giant Disney World style theme park surrounding a 40-story tall artificial mountain. It all came about like this. It was Friday, November 3, two weeks ago. Standing at Riverhead Town Hall that morning were five men waiting to have their picture taken by members of the press. On the left was an attorney for the developer of the resort development, Mort Weber, smiling and holding out a $3.9 million check that he was handing over to the Riverhead Town Board members. Next to him, receiving the check was special attorney for the town Tim Isler, and after him, Councilman Tim Wooten, Town Supervisor Sean Walter, and Councilman John Dunleavy. This was a great day for Riverhead. The Town had received an offer, out of the blue, four years earlier, from this British firm Baldragon Homes Ltd. They wanted, on behalf of their subsidiary, Riverhead Resorts, to buy these 750 acres in an undeveloped part of town known as the Enterprise Area of Riverhead for $155 million. They would put down a $7.5 million non-refundable deposit. Then, by 2008 they'd close on the property and pay the rest. Sometime around 2011 they'd begin to dig--they would be building an artificial lake that ferry boats could plod across next to the mountain--and by 2014 they'd open their doors. Millions of people would come every year. The Town, which had been struggling along, would be saved. Everybody would be happy. The Town said sure. They took the $7.5 million deposit. And everybody got ready to start. And then the bottom fell out of the nation's economy. But, John Niven, the Chairman of Baldragon, reassured the Town that the project was still going ahead. Everything was in order. There was nothing to worry about. The agreement everybody had signed called for a penalty if Riverhead Resorts didn't complete the sale of the land on the dates proposed. This penalty was $2 million. Riverhead Resorts (continued on page 14) ROCKETS FROM AUSTRALIA & MOON LESSONS By Dan Rattiner I really hate Daylight Savings Time. Sixty days ago the sun was setting gloriously at seven in the evening. Now, suddenly, it's setting in the middle of the afternoon. When it's dark it's time to go to bed, I was taught as a child. Clearly something is wrong. You just get started enjoying the East End and WHAM, bedtime. You don't even get dinner. Someone told me Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered Daylight Savings Time during World War II to cut down on electricity use in order to maximize the war effort. It's not rocket science to see that this makes no sense. It does not save on Daylight Savings Time. The amount of daylight is the same one way or the other. So the amount of nighttime is not changed either. If anything, people turn the lights on at four in the afternoon, then sleep through dawn. I think it has the opposite effect. It does make me wonder what President Roosevelt really had in mind. He was a smart man. He's fighting Hitler and Tojo. Hocus Pocus. Here in America we've figured out a way to make more daylight and less nighttime to use less electricity. And we're working on an atomic bomb. You don't know who you are dealing with. I was reading blogs about Daylight Savings Time. Three hundred million Americans lament the fact that they now risk their lives driving home from work at rush hour in the dark. Twenty million parents--the designated parent--cheer that they don't have to wake their little kids up to go to school when it's dark and have no reasonable explanation for that. Is this a fair trade-off? As it was explained to me, the sun setting earlier or later is not the problem. It's the Earth that's the problem. The Earth, an almost perfect sphere, circles the sun every 365 days and spins once around every 24 hours, but it spins around leaning over. This is hard to explain. You know how a top spins around standing perfectly up straight? The Earth does not stand perfectly up straight. It spins leaning over at 23.5 degrees. And this lean does NOT change as the Earth circles the sun. You'd think it would, that it would constantly lean over with its top sort of bowing to the sun, but it doesn't. It has a mind of its own. And so when the earth is on one side of the sun it leans TOWARD the sun and when it is on the other side of the sun it leans AWAY from the sun. When it's toward the sun, we get more sunshine and when it's away we get less sunshine. (continued on page 18) Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 danshamptons.com Page 14 Mountain (continued from previous page) could then have an extra year. Indeed, Riverhead Resorts failed to close, failed to pay the $2 million penalty, and asked for the extension. They also said they wanted to negotiate down the price of the land purchase. Surely everybody could see that the price was too high at $155 million. New negotiations began. A year later they were still wrangling, so, Riverhead Resorts declined to pay the next $2 million penalty as well. They said the price had to be lower. They also said that if another year passed and they were still wrangling, as an act of good faith, they would put the $6 million total--this would include a third year penalty-- in escrow until the town would agree to a reduced price of $108 million for the land. Then the amount would be released at closing. This was only fair. Finally in September of this year, it was agreed. The price would be $108 million for the land. And Riverhead Resorts would pay, well, not $6 million, but $3.9 million--after various deductions--because the third penalty would not be due because they had now agreed. It would all be due on September 30, 2010. The photo of the smiling men involved in the handing over of the check, as I said, took place on November 3. There had been further delays. There had been further excuses. Because of these excuses and delays, the Town now insisted that this would be a final, dropdead deadline.

Otherwise the whole deal would be off and they would just walk off with the $7.5 million, shake hands and that would be that. So here it was, Friday morning, November 3, and in walks Mort Weber, one of the attorneys for Riverhead Resorts with this check. Flashbulbs popped. The deed was done. The reporters ran off to write their stories. Weekly newspapers in our towns out here come out on Thursdays. On Wednesday, when the Riverhead News-Review was about to be put to bed, the editor had a good look at the enlarged view of this check. There was something wrong with it. The check was not a certified typed-up bank check. It was a handwritten check on a private account in a Barclays Bank in Edinburgh. This was now five days later. Had the Town Board cashed it? Had they? Had it cleared? The editor ordered it run front page. And the next day, there it was. Turned out this check had not yet cleared. It also turned out that someone in Riverhead that day had sent a fax of its picture to Edinburgh where, quite suddenly, a representative of the bank said STOP! You can't publish a picture like that in a newspaper. On the bank check are the account numbers and routing numbers. This is a huge amount. This compromises this account. I am ordering this account immediately CLOSED! And so, the next day, when the check reached the bank, it bounced. A problem? The Town Board met informally on Thursday afternoon. They called John Niven, the Chairman of the Board of Baldragon. They'd had enough. They no longer wanted a check, they wanted a money transfer--from the Baldragon account to the Town's Account-- something that could easily be arranged in less than an hour. Otherwise, the next day, at 10 a.m. on Friday morning, 3 p.m. Edinburgh time, November 10, they would vote to cancel this entire business. John Niven of Baldragon told Newsday on Thursday evening that he would have the money transfer done by the end of the day on Friday November 10. He said they were going ahead with the project. At 10 a.m. Friday, the Town Board met. There were five of them. They waited 15 minutes. It was now 3:15 p.m., Scotland time. There had been no money wired. They voted. It was four votes in favor of calling the whole thing off. And one vote not to do so. The one vote was cast by Councilman John Dunleavy. "What have we got to lose?" he asked. "We already have the $7.5 million. Do we have OTHER plans for this site?" In fact, the Town had put the site up for sale 14 years ago. There had been some nibbles. But not one thing has been built on what had been this former Grumman Aircraft Airfield Facility gifted to the town for $1, sorry to have shut down and cost the town all those jobs at that time. But what was done was done. As Supervisor Sean Walter said about Riverhead Resorts--"It's hard to believe what Baldragon has done. You can't make this stuff up. I've had it. We move (continued on page 16) Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 danshamptons.com Page 15 Tim Bishop and Randy Altschuler are still in limbo; Ken Lavalle and Fred Thiele are safe. Democracy in Action What if Altschuler Had Conceded Defeat on Election Night? By Dan Rattiner The question everybody asked immediately after the election for congressman from this district was--how could the voting commission have gotten it so wrong? About 200,000 votes were cast. When the polls ended and the computers counted up the full tally, it was announced that for the First District here on the eastern end of Long Island, Tim Bishop � D, the incumbent, had won re-election by a narrow 3,461 majority over the Republican challenger Randy Altschuler. In percentages, this meant a victory with 51.5% to 48.5%. It was close, but not that close. Bishop asked Altschuler to concede around midnight. Altschuler thought about it and decided, some thought without proper grounds, to decline. He thought they ought to wait and see. The next day there was a new announcement. There had been a mistake made in the reporting by the voting machines. In fact, Altschuler had won by 383 votes. Now THAT was really too tight to ignore. Bishop demanded a recount. The Voting Commission said that it was worth looking into. And they would soon make a sample recount and then see if a larger one might be called for. Turns out--to answer the burning question-- the reason the vote had shifted was not because of some illegal interference on the part of a corrupt politician in one or more of the polling places, and not even because of some mechanical breakdown in one or more of the 460 voting places in the community. There had been a HUGE breakdown. In nearly half of all the voting places, there were miscounts of between 10 and 985 votes. (That happened in Mount Sinai.) If you do the math, you realize that the average number of people casting their votes in each of the voting places was just 500 people. And so in Mt. Sinai, practically ALL the ballots were improperly counted, or as they call it, undercounted. In other words, this was indeed one grand screw up in the voting places in the East End community. Why? As you might know, the people who monitor the voting have for as long as anybody can remember, used voting machines where people pull down levers and at the end of the day the monitors examine the totals that comes out the back. But in recent years, ever since the 2000 debacle in Palm Beach County with the hanging chads during the Gore-Bush Presidential election, there has been a push to computerize this process. So finally, this year, it came to the East End. There was no more entering a booth, sliding the curtain closed and pulling the lever. There was a business where you sat at a table filling out a form in a "privacy" area so nobody could see who you were marking off. Then this form was sent through a scanner, tabulated by a computer, then spit out the back into a pile. The pile served as backup. If the computer screwed up, the ballots could be counted by hand. Turns out that the monitors had never been properly trained to understand the readout (continued on page 20) CHEESE & THE AMERICAN OBESITY EPIDEMIC By Dan Rattiner The lead article on the front page of The New York Times the other day was about the role that cheese plays in the obesity currently rampant in America. I was puzzled about this at first. It seemed to me to be an odd choice for the front page lead story in the Times, even though it was, from what I could see of the other articles, a slow news day. The Times suggested in their article that the whole epidemic is being caused by cheese. If true, that would make sense, a lead story about cheese. Stop the cheese. America slims down to proper size. The problem about cheese, the Times reported, was that there is too much of it being produced. The reason is that during the last 20 years, Americans have gotten wise to the fact they should stop drinking whole milk. There's too much fat in it. Now they buy 2%, 1% and skim milk. The cream is unsold. It piles up. Well, you can't keep cream for more than a week or two, even refrigerated, and so to keep it longer, to give themselves a bigger time frame to do something about it, they've been making it into cheese. As cheese, it can last for months. And so, since it sits there for months, it gives business and government and other interested people a whole lot of time to figure out what to do with this cheese. As you know, the government subsidizes farmers, and has been doing so since the Depression. They pay farmers not to plant things when there is an overabundance. It keeps prices from going through the floor. With cows being cows though, the cheese keeps coming. And so, the government buys the cheese and practically gives it away free to anybody who wants it. They give it to school cafeterias, to the poor, to people on food stamps, to institutions and then, God help us, people eat it. The Times published a graph showing year by year the percentage of cheese in an average American's diet during the last 20 years. It has skyrocketed. People are now eating triple the amount of cheese per capita than they did 20 years ago. The Times then gave two examples of big new developments in the cheese world. One culprit is Domino's Pizza. Last year, in a survey, Domino's (continued on page 22) Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 danshamptons.com Page 16 What? (continued from page 11) will have personally made in the Hamptons during my time on this planet, and I hope you all like it. As for the tale of where the Werewolf fit in to all this, well, I looked at the ceiling, drank a sip of rum and coke, and that just scribbled out of my pen when I looked back down. In any case, by the power invested in me by the State of New York and the United States of America, I hereby would like to make the following suggestions for further consideration for renaming County Road 39. I've got five here. And the last, I will save as my favorite. If the County is really stuck on the idea of a long multi-syllabled name, then I think they should consider "The Robert David Lion Gardiner 15th Lord of the Manor Highway." Robert David Lion Gardiner, who really was the 15th generation Gardiner descendant of Lion Gardiner, the first English settler to set foot in the State of New York, was indeed the 15th Lord of his private island, Gardiner's Island. He also passed away recently, I think in the same year that Edwin M. Buzz Schwenk did. Another long name that I think might be a good one is to consider "Robert Francis Xavier Sillerman Causeway," in honor of a currentday business genius who lives in Southampton and who, along with his partner Cousin Brucie, has made hundreds of millions of dollars buying and selling radio stations around the country. He does have this very wonderful and beautiful four-word name, although he is generally known as Robert F. X. Sillerman, and he is the only person I know with a name of that length. Another name I think ought to be considered is the "Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt Parkway." Admittedly it is not a parkway, but Commodore Vanderbilt was the first person to tee up a golf ball and hit it over the Shinnecock Hills in order to create the Shinnecock Hills Golf Course, which is either the first or second golf course ever built in America. The Commodore brought back the idea of it from Scotland, by steamship, which is how you did that in those years. How about a name that does not involve a person? I would suggest "Boulevard to the Entitled." I know it is still a lot of words. But it would at least tell it like it is. My very favorite suggestion, however, is this. "College Boulevard." Our local College, shut down and put up for sale by Long Island University after a 40-year run, then restored with $65 million, opened for two years and then shut down once again, this time by the State University of New York at Stony Brook, is now locked up once again. Our local officials, including Schneiderman, who is as nice a guy as Buzz Schwenk was during his time here, are now proposing that our college be reopened as a state school, but as an independent free-standing college. This community would sell its soul to keep it as a college-level school of learning. Other possibilities suggested for this lockedup campus include apartments for the elderly, a low income housing project and a campus for an elaborate gambling casino. "College Boulevard" would set the record straight. The road will never change. No matter what they propose to make out of the campus, it will always be right there halfway down College Boulevard, either three miles west from Flying Point Road or three miles east from Sunrise Highway. I would dare anybody to make it anything other than a college. Mountain (continued from page 14) on." There was one councilman, George Gabrielsen, who had not shown up to have his picture taken. But he was at the vote. And he voted with the majority. "Finally, we have got the 800-pound gorilla off our back," he said. Well, and maybe also the Three Bears, the Seven Dwarfs and Snow White and Cinderella. And the equestrian park, the hotels, the ski village, the African safari park, the convention center, the race track, the big lake with the ferryboats in it and, well, especially the big mountain that would have towered 40 stories high, 400 feet at its peak, over all of eastern Long Island--the tallest structure ever built on Long Island--was gone. Poof. On Monday, Ski Magazine, a national publication, put the news on its website. What? No year- around ski resort in Riverhead? It had been cancelled? OMG. Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 danshamptons.com Page 17 Jon Bon Jovi has taken the stage, unexpectedly, at the Stephen Talkhouse Surprise Appearances Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, etc. get Inspired at the Talkhouse By David Lion Rattiner The Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett is undeniably the most important music venue on the East End of Long Island. The bar and stage create a very laid back space, with bartenders who know everybody and performers that include the most famous musicians in the world, as well as local bands trying to earn their street credit. It's quite possibly one of the most unique spaces in the world in terms of the good music, when you account for the number of celebrities who walk in and out, and the mix of locals and tourists. As the old saying goes, music brings people together, and nearly every facet of the social fabric of New York goes to the Talkhouse to listen to good performers, and have a few drinks and a good time. On any given night in the summer time, you could pass by music legends such as Jon Bon Jovi, Jimmy Buffet and others inside, while the local band Little Head Thinks is doing a set or Nancy Atlas has the crowd dancing up a storm. The club is owned by Peter Honerkamp and partners. Honerkamp, something of a quiet hero in the Hamptons, participates in countless charity fundraising efforts through music that has drawn the attention of the national press. If somebody in town is sick, Honerkamp will give a green light for talent booker Nick Krauss and their long time staff and crew to organize a music benefit. Thousands, possibly even millions when you add it all up, has been raised for the charity efforts this club has brought to people over the years. The club has been a tremendous supporter and active member of Soldier Ride. This charity was started by Chris Carney, a former bartender at the club, to raise awareness and funding for wounded American veterans, and has been talked about in the national media. None of the charities, the big musical acts, the local acts nor the good vibe of the Talkhouse happens by accident. Over the years the Talkhouse has worked itself into being an institution for the entire country, with some of the biggest names in (continued on page 24) BERNIE MADOFF'S MONOGRAMMED SLIPPERS By T.J. Clemente It was quite the spectacle at the Sheraton Hotel New York in Midtown last weekend as the belongings of Bernard Madoff were auctioned off. Meanwhile in a federal correctional complex in Butner, North Carolina, Bernard Lawrence Madoff, prisoner No. 61727-054, sat as he does every day, in his cell, wondering perhaps about his family, his pets, or even his shrubs at his former homes. But, according to many reports, the one thing he doesn't worry about are his victims who will be the beneficiaries of the proceeds of this auction, the second one held so far to sell off items seized by the authorities from Madoff's three homes. The $2 million raised by this auction doesn't really go that far compared to the $20-60 billion that the Madoff's Ponzi scheme devoured from the savings of friends, investors, charities, universities, and other institutions. Some even believe you can blame Madoff for the two last horrible seasons the Mets have had, since Madoff reportedly squandered their owner's fortune. But for one day last weekend, it was all about collectors, curious folks, and some in-the-know hunting for novelties, treasures, and keepsakes. And it was a spectacle with the top item being the diamond engagement ring that Madoff gave to his wife Ruth. Bidding went up to $550,000 for the 10.54karat, emerald-cut rock--nearly doubling the pre-sale estimate of $300,000. However, on the other end of the spectrum was the $1,700 paid for item #360 that included 11 pairs of brandnew monogrammed designer drawers with the owner reportedly planning to give them away as holiday gifts. The winner of that bid also received 38 pairs of Sir Madoff's ultra-luxurious Charvet socks. Then there was the Persian rug dealer who sent his son to the auction to fetch back a prize rug that was won for $30,000. Antique rug aficionados speculated that the rug will most likely sell for twice that when properly marketed. Long Island octogenarian, John Rodger, bid $42,000 for Madoff's 1917 Steinway grand piano, admitting it was perhaps $7,000 more than it was worth. But he had a place picked out and perhaps at 81 years old, one can splurge every now and then. Prices paid for other items included $67,500 for a Rolex "Moon Phase" watch; Ruth Madoff's French diamond earrings fetched $135,000 from an undisclosed buyer. That was the second highest price paid for an item, after the engagement ring. A leather bull-foot stool, including a tail that had broken off, sold for $3,300. An oil painting by the late American artist Frederick Carl Frieseke went for $47,500.

The time to do it would be between 3:11 a.m. and 3:28 a.m. Eastern Standard Time so the noise wouldn't bother us here in our time zone because we would be asleep. We estimated the cost to do this. It is quite high. People aren't going to work for nothing. A cheaper way to accomplish this might be to get the moon to give the Earth lessons in discipline. We'd each had many drinks by this time. The moon circles the Earth ALWAYS facing it. It is a great tribute to the Earth that the moon does this. It is also a great tribute to the discipline the moon has. Certainly it could spin around in some random wobbly, tipped-over way as we do. But it doesn't. It just faces us. There is this one side we can see and this other side we can't see. Or couldn't see until we sent men to the moon and they found that the other side looked just like this side. Neither of us had any idea how we could get the moon to give the Earth lessons. But it would be cheaper. The moon, gracious as it is, might even do it for nothing. Hey Earth, stop slouching. We left the bar, or tried to. The other way we tried to fix this was to get the sun to orbit the Earth rather than the other way around. It may actually have been doing that long ago. If you read the history books, for the first two million years all our elders said that was what was happening. It's only been about 500 years that it's reported to have become the other way around. We stood out on the sidewalk. How the hell are we supposed to get home? (continued from previous page) Is this clear? There are other weird things that the Earth does as it circles the sun. For one thing, it does not make a perfect circle around the sun. It's sort of an oval. And so sometimes we're farther from the sun and sometimes closer. Also the Earth has a wobble on its axis. It's a very slight wobble that takes about a half million years to happen once I am told. In any case, neither of these other abnormalities has anything to do with why we decided on Daylight Savings Time. It's entirely because of the stubborn lean we have while spinning. Fixing this, getting the Earth to stand up straight, is the answer and the only answer to getting a fair share of sunshine all year around. I have a friend who works at the Brookhaven National Lab, which is where they have the cyclotron that splits atoms and where they are working on other space-time matters. I took him out to a local tavern I know and we sat in a booth, had a few drinks--four or five--and wrote things down on the back of paper placemats to try to see how we can fix this. One solution would be to place extremely powerful rockets in the Outback of Australia. If we time it right, set them off for brief bursts every day at the same time, after awhile, we can get the Earth to stand up straight. It's just a matter of calculating everything, and we did that. It was very important we do that exactly right. We did not want to fire the powerful rockets too long. We could tip it the other way. We figured we'd need 4,702 rockets each producing 7.5 giga- veteen slippers with the initials "BLM" embroidered on them in gold, along with a monogrammed Ruth Madoff pajama shirt, were claimed for $6,000 by a young man--even though the slippers were a size 8 and the buyer wears a size 13. Ten pairs of Madoff's used designer shoes sold for $900. (It may be noted that Madoff had 250 pairs, many never worn, that were made in Italy, France, Belgium and England.) The Madoff's early 19th-century bed with fabric hangings and sun damage brought in only $2,500. The bed was in bad shape and someone noted that it's not unusual for the beds of wealthy people to be in that state, saying, "You buy one, sleep in it a whole lifetime, then die in it." (With Madoff's bed, that probably won't be the case since he most likely will spend his last night on earth in prison, considering he has a 150-year sentence with just two years gone by.) Along with the excitement leading up to the auction, another story in the news last week related to raising money for Madoff victims. Irving Picard is the trustee in charge of trying to salvage as much of the lost Madoff money as possible. Recent records of Picard's efforts show 4,900 accounts that once listed $65 billion in nonexistent investments (with investors losing about $20 billion in principal). Nineteen new lawsuits were also filed by Picard seeking to recover more than $15.5 billion from parties of employees related to Madoff. The reported defendants in Picard's latest effort consist of (continued on page 26) Great for weddings, special events, wine tours. Our luxurious motorcoaches can make any guest feel special.

All the grandmothers want all their children and grandchildren to come to their house and they all want the Norman Rockwell family portrait of the perfect Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone in the picture looks happy and grateful. All the children are sitting nicely. My mother still wants this perfect Thanksgiving. But, if your family is like mine, there are family members who won't talk to other family members, and there's no way our kids would sit calmly at a table, and there's not a single bottle of wine or any of it's affiliates anywhere in the Norman Rockwell picture, I checked it twice. Small pockets of family groups within the family will group together and have Thanksgiving at different homes. But, if by some stroke of luck, your whole family does gather around one table, here's my advice for safe topics of conversation and topics to avoid. Topics to Avoid On the basis that men usually compete with each other and women usually try to avoid conflict in family gatherings, I suggest avoiding the following topics: The route you took to drive there. Every man seems to know a shortcut that someone else doesn't know and little competitions break out over the fastest and shortest way to get there. It is the most meaningless conversation I have ever heard, but men will actually spend time trying to "one-up" each other on who got there by the smartest route. Politics, religion, and I'm adding sports as a sub-category of religion. Any conversation on politics goes south immediately and men don't discuss religion because it includes self-reflection and/or (perish the thought) self-examination, so avoid politics and religion. Sports cannot be discussed because the devotion and loyalty levels are too high and require verbal fighting over the table that can result in peas and maybe a potato being thrown. So, no sports. Whose child is smarter? The answer is always that your children are the smartest and the others are just some DNA slop that got into the gene pool when the lifeguard wasn't looking. So, no one can discuss their children. Who had the worst childhood? Sibling rivalry never dies. The "Mom loves you more" crap never stops. If you're a parent and you're accused of loving one child more than the other, as I was one day, I suggest using the answer I gave: "Shut up! I can't stand either one of you! You're both driving me nuts!" The accusatory child did shut up and the topic was never raised again. While children are busy looking for ways to blame you for everything wrong with them, they never factor in your sacrifices and forfeiture of money, time and goals. I always say, there are no perfect parents because there are no perfect children, and they can only blame me for their problems if I am credited with all their accomplishments, it's an all or nothing deal...the little creeps. Thanksgiving recipes. Women like to discuss and share recipe ideas, but the men always jump in and either: 1. They know a better recipe for the item, which they have never cooked themselves, or 2. Their mother made it better than you. So, recipes, although they seem safe, might be okay for about 10 minutes of conversation, but then you have to move on. Boats, dock fees, condition of moorings. If you live on the Island, don't bring up these topics. Boats are like children, they take and take, but we love them and will give them anything they want, until we've had it and then we sell them-- which is alright if you sell to a stranger. But if you sell to a relative, you will never hear the end of how you took advantage of them and the accusations will start approximately three minutes after some innocent person asks, "So, Bob, how are you and Susan liking your new boat?" Can't talk about the dead, that's bad luck, unless it's to miss them or laud them. Can't talk about about money, no one has enough, ever, period. So what topics are safe to talk about? Family members who are alive, but not present at that table are fair game. Everyone can spew verbal arrows and shards of glass in complete safety and no fights will break out until someone at the table tells the non-present family member (continued on next page) For the first time at The Hampton Synagogue HAMPTONS INTERFAITH THANKSGIVING CELEBRATION SPONSORED BY THE HAMPTONS INTERFAITH COUNCIL RIDGIE BARNETT, PRESIDENT Bring it on.

But that's what happened. Now it appears there will have to be an entire hand count of all the ballots to determine who won, although between the jockeying around on this side and that, this might not begin until later this week or maybe not even at all. Perhaps there will be a revote. The real question involved in this that nobody has yet asked is this: What if at midnight, when Bishop declared victory and asked Altschuler to concede, Altschuler had done so. He certainly considered it. He had lost 51.5% to 48.5%. He had no grounds not to do so. If that had happened, the victory celebration, already underway in the Bishop camp, would have continued far into the night. And Tim Bishop, who may or may not have had the most votes, would be our Congressman-elect today. Furthermore, none of this scandal involving the vote counting would even have come up. To start checking all the votes requires additional funding, and that doesn't happen unless the commission finds things are too close to call or a losing candidate calls for it for other reasons. As it stands, there are two other districts in the state where votes for Congressperson were too close to call. The voting commissions are struggling now with those two also. And then I have this confession. I personally intended to vote at the Springs Fire House. But as it turned out that day, with having to wash the dog and meet with a contractor and do some other things, I never got around to it. And at the end of the day when I realized I had not voted, I felt badly about it, even though the outcome was not yet known. Now they've got 11,000 write-ins to count, which are expected to lean slightly toward Bishop. So he might pull up to even. What if?... Nah. Democracy is a wonderful idea, in theory anyway. But maybe the Chinese, with a Communistrun system, have got it right. They just tell you who to vote for. Then you do and that is that. They don't run into these sorts of errors, and they are getting along quite nicely, as it happens. It's really quite depressing, all this.

You're not talking to them anyway, that's why they weren't invited to your dinner. Tomatoes. After long and careful thought I have concluded that tomatoes are the perfect Thanksgiving topic. No one has anything against them. Everyone likes them and can name their favorite kind. There's very little controversy over tomatoes. Can't say that about other veggies. Zucchini conversations inevitably lead to body part comparisons. Red vs. white potatoes can be debated. Bell peppers can be blamed for indigestion. Onions are way too controversial and someone with Irritable Bowel Syndrome is always present with a repulsive "Well, you know what happens to me if I eat onions" story. So, I have concluded that tomatoes are the only truly safe topic for discussion at any Thanksgiving table. Hope that helps.

Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 danshamptons.com Page 21 Who's Here By David Lion Rattiner If you've ever driven out to the Hamptons from New York City, you've seen Linda Scott's six-story tall sculpture known as "Stargazer." The sculpture, is a rendition of a deer that is looking up at the sky, is located on the east side of Manorville Road just to the north of where those coming from the city on the Long Island Expressway turn onto Route 27. Linda Scott, who lives in Southampton, is an artist through and through. She was educated at Sarah Lawrence College, Harvard University and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and studied privately with Nicolas Carone. Her credentials as an artist and sculptor are impressive. Recently, to help take care of the Stargazer, Sherman Williams Paint and Jeff Lynch of the Hampton Jitney have shown their support for the inspiring sculpture. "That was so amazing," Scott said. "Sherman Williams told me over the telephone that it was honor to help restore and supply paint to keep Stargazer looking beautiful." Many of the sculptures that Scott has done sit in the vast backyards of the rich in the Hamptons who thoroughly enjoy her work and tell this story to their friends. "You know the Stargazer sculpture that you see when you first come into the Hamptons? The person who created that made this for me." Scott has sold some of her work to very wellknown people and celebrities, including Steven Spielberg, Andy Warhol and Paul Mellon. She has also been involved with building designs, including a building at Cornell University. She also creates Stargazer Jewelry, frequently showcased at Pelletreau Silver Shop in Southampton, where many come to admire and buy her work. Scott worked with Master Jeweler Eric Messin, who is the manager of the Pelletreau Silver Shop, and her jewelry is described as "wearable art." Not surprising, Scott has been asked many times about the meaning of the Stargazers. "The Stargazers mark the connection of the above to the below. They speak to a conscious relationship in the universe," she said. "Because we are responsible for our planet and its future, the Stargazers exist first as monumental sculptures. But they are also figurative sculptures that can be translated into buildings, and have been proposed as cultural, resort and environmental centers around the world. Building projects are in collaboration with the architects Robin Young Wright of Skydome fame, and Richard Roth, the architect of the World Trade Center.When completed, they will appear as symbols of education and awareness around the world." Originally, the very large Stargazer now located in Manorville was commissioned by the Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) as entrance for their East Hampton location near the airport on Daniel Hole's Road. Stargazer would straddle the driveway, and cars would drive through its legs. But when Scott finished the sculpture, the Town of East Hampton Building Department refused to allow it to be erected because of political pressure from the Town Board and members of the public who felt that the sculpture was dangerous to be so close to the East Hampton airport--pilots coming in for a landing might be distracted by it. Without a home for Stargazer, Scott began to look elsewhere. And soon, thanks to the generosity of a kindly farmer and the benevolence of the town of Brookhaven in whose district the farmland exists, Stargazer found its home on Manorville Road. Maintaining the structure however, costs money, and Scott is in a constant struggle to make sure that her sculpture will remain in good condition. The fact is that Stargazer is a great part of Scott's life and so, over the years, she has reached out to many prominent people in the community. In 1996, the 70-x-50 foot sculpture was vandalized, with holes kicked into it and parts of it spray painted. When the news of this broke, it made headlines in The New York Times, where Scott was quoted saying, "It's too heinous to even contemplate. It makes it lethal for artists to get work up." When that vandalism occurred, though, the community came out offering financial support to effectively restore the massive sculpture. The need to keep it in good condition remains a goal for Scott. "It's made out of stucco, not steel, so there is always a need for help to keep it updated. Today, my thanks is to Geoff Lynch of the Hampton Jitney who has been a huge supporter of the Stargazer." Lynch, the owner of the Hampton Jitney, has not only offered up financial support but is also covering two of his Jitneys with images of the Stargazer wrapped all around them. On the side of each Hampton Jitney, Scott will be identified as the artist, and John Jaxheimer, the head photographer at Sports Illustrated, as the photographer. "He is just absolutely fabulous," said Scott. "Everybody thinks that I'm a lunatic for putting that piece out there and taking care of it for 20 years. But I am a lunatic, so there," she said. Linda has set up a website, www.lindascott.org, where she can be contacted about keeping this beautiful piece of artwork in good condition. And so, when you drive by the Stargazer and marvel at what has come to be perceived by many as a gateway to the Hamptons, you can know that the general viewing public has enabled the life's work of one woman in the Hamptons to proceed. She, in turn, is committed to keeping her heart and soul focused on this project so that it may be enjoyed by all, far into the future. Linda Scott, Artist "Everybody thinks that I'm a lunatic for putting that piece out there and taking care of it for 20 years. But I am a lunatic, so there."

What problem (continued from page 15) By David Lion Rattiner If you were at the parade in Sag Harbor over the weekend, then you already know the the Pierson High School Girls field hockey team, the Lady Whalers, is now aiming their sticks at the state championship. Sag Harbor's Main Street was filled with roaring fans, fire trucks and police cars in celebration of the news. The Lady Whalers took the Suffolk County title last week, then over the weekend, they led the charge against the Friends Academy in a 2-0 win, giving them the Class-C Regional Title. The two winning goals were scored by freshman Katherine Matther, who plays as a defender and whose name was being talked about all day Sunday in Sag Harbor. Goalie Catherine Musnicki had seven saves in the game. The girls now enter into the state semifinals Cicero North Syracuse High School on November 19 at 9 a.m., where they'll play against Barker High next Friday. Should they prevail, they will play for the state championship the next day. Congratulations Lady Whalers, Class C Long Island Champs! GOOD LUCK at the Final Four state games! about that cheese? A deal was struck. The government would sell the cheese real cheap. And last week Domino's launched four new pizza items, all very low priced, all just dripping with different kinds of cheeses. The worst of it--if you look at it from this perspective--is the "Wisconsin," which has alternating layers of cheddar, mozzarella, American and Swiss, and which, according to The Times has, in just two slices, more than a quarter of your entire daily requirement of fat. The other example involves some government-sponsored agency that is promoting cheese as being really good for you. The agency--I think it is the American Cheese Institute--has issued a report saying you can lose weight by eating more cheese. They document the work of this particular doctor who issued a paper to that effect. Cheese blocks an enzyme that makes you fatter. The more cheese, the less of the enzyme. Advertisements were created touting this finding. When another government agency, which is in charge of enforcing truth in advertising, challenged the findings of this doctor, the American Cheese Institute hired a researcher in Canada to conduct experiments to prove it. The Times sent reporters to Canada to interview this doctor. She said she worked for two years on this project and during that time the Institute published her name and lab as a source of their claim about cheese helping you lose weight. "In the end," she said, "when I published that cheese had no correlation with either the enzyme or weight loss, they CONTINUED to publish my name as part of the proof. I figured somebody would come in and arrest them. But nobody did." The Times did say that about a year and a half later, the Cheese Institute abandoned the claim about weight loss. But when The Times called them, they said they had only done so because they had a new thrust to their advertising. Cheese, when melted on such things as broccoli, helps people decide to eat broccoli, which DOES help you lose weight. As this point, I gave up on reading this article. It had occurred to me there was something missing. I reviewed my thinking. Twenty years ago, everybody was getting all this fat by drinking whole milk. Today, the same stuff comes out of the bottom of the cow. But now, the skim milk is what people drink, so they get less fat. And then they make up the fat by eating what got removed as cheese. So the amount of fat they eat now is just the same as it was 20 years ago, except it has gone around and around. What's the big deal? The Times could have saved a lot of money on research, reporting, editing and interviewing if they had talked to me about this first. But they didn't. Maybe they'll think twice about this in the future.

Several passengers, upon arriving at the Southampton station reported minor injuries and were taken to and then treated at Southampton Hospital and released. It is believed the second croc, one facing westbound, must have come out perhaps to defend the Southampton Station shortly after that after motorman McFalken backed through. On Thursday morning, with everything quiet, several men with elephant guns crept down the tunnel from the Southampton station. They found the place a shambles, but with the two crocs gone, apparently back into their storage rooms. They walked all the way to Hampton Bays without incident, stepping over the debris on the tracks. By 1 p.m., workmen had removed much of the (continued on next page) By Dan Rattiner Week of November 20-26, 2010 Riders this week: 4,821 Rider miles this week: 56,412 DOWN IN THE TUBE Editor Tina Brown, formerly of Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Talk, The Daily Beast and now Newsweek, was seen on the Westhampton Beach to Quogue subway talking to Sarah Palin, who, from what we could hear, is angling for a column in one of Brown's publications. DELAYS AGAIN Hampton Subway regrets to announce that for two days last week, the system was completely shut down on account of two apparently prehistoric crocodiles who wandered out onto the tracks in the subway tunnel between Southampton and Shinnecock, discovered one another there and then proceeded to engage in a fight to the death to defend their turf, which apparently consisted of where they discovered one another and the surrounding area. These are no ordinary crocodiles. They are monsters, both of them, apparently 30 feet long, from the pictures taken of them from our surveillance cameras before they went out and they went at it for two days, Tuesday and Wednesday, in the subway tunnel there, without either of them giving ground one inch. During this time, of course, it was impossible for any subway trains to get through, not only because of the bad odors the crocs gave off during their intense struggle, but also because of the damage they did to the walls and ceilings of the tunnel, mostly by the crashing of their great tails. Tiles were stripped off the walls, also light fixtures and wires and in several cases, hunks of concrete and iron bars. A scientist from the Manorville Game Farm, Dr. Stanley Livingston, looked at the surveillance videos on Tuesday night and said that the crocodiles appeared to be Sarcosuchuses that lived and thrived for about 100 million years during the Jurassic period. He was fairly certain about one of them with a black snout and yellow eyes, but was less certain of the other, which was slightly smaller and had green eyes and a brown snout. "I think the second one could have been a Stomatosuchus who lived largely during the Cretaceous period, which came after the Jurassic period," he said. "In any case, they both appeared to be males. Females would not wreak this kind of destruction." Residents of Shinnecock--the battle took place largely under St. Andrews Road--said that dishes were knocked out of cabinets in the kitchens and on Tuesday nights, the ferocious growling and banging around kept them up all night, although on Wednesday night it appeared to be less as these animals, it seemed, were getting tired. As reported last week in this newsletter about the skeleton found in a locked storeroom in one of the tunnels near Water Mill, there are many storerooms along the tunnels, both north and south, that these ancient crocodiles might have been living in for who knows how long. It is thought that one of them burst out onto the tracks at 7 a.m. Tuesday and began slithering eastward--causing motorman Carl McFalken, heading westward, to jam his subway into reverse and, after reporting what he'd seen, backed his subway slowly up to the Southampton platform so the passengers could get off and run up to the street. Of course, the 1329745 Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 danshamptons.com Page 24 Surprise (continued from page 17) Subway there. He performed about 10 songs. It was one of the most incredible shows I've ever seen. Honerkamp explained to me that this was not the first time Buffet hit the stage like this. "Jimmy Buffet has done this a kazillion times. Sometimes just for fun and other times for local charities. He just comes in and plays, on a number of occasions. He's gone on stage unexpectedly probably more than a dozen times," Honerkamp said. But what exactly causes these great musicians to do this? Honerkamp responded, "Well, a lot of the times these guys will be at the Talkhouse to see a band that they just wanted to see live or because they're friends with the band, and then they'll go up and play with their friends for support. We make a point to make everybody feel comfortable at the Talkhouse and I think that has to do with it, and they also know that we have a good crew and that the sound will be good and that they'll have everything they need." In 1995 Sting performed at the Talkhouse spontaneously while in town doing a VH1 "Behind the Music" episode. Even Keith Richards has come in to see shows there. The bar has already achieved legendary status and the work that the Talkhouse crew continues to dazzle the East End with absolutely sensational shows. But the laid back feel of Talkhouse is still there and doesn't seem to be going away. As Honerkamp says, "It will always be there." That sounds about right. (continued from previous page) the music world spontaneously going up on stage to do a few songs--just because the mood calls for it. Last week, actor and comedian Jimmy Fallon walked on stage at the Stephen Talkhouse to do a few songs, but he's not the only one who has done such a thing on the intimate Talkhouse stage that's no more than a foot or so above the crowd. "In August of 1992 Paul McCartney came up front to do a song and that was really incredible," Honerkamp said. "He did that because he came to see G.E. Smith � he and Paul are friends. "In the early years, Billy Joel performed a lot. One time he went up to the piano because Van Morrison had performed a show at Jones Beach and was in town. We've really had some amazing nights there and continue to do so." The Talkhouse manages to get even international super stars to do charity concerts at no cost. This includes Jon Bon Jovi and Paul Simon, both of whom have come up spontaneously to do a few songs. "Jon Bon Jovi did his own benefit concert for the Wounded Warrior Concert in 2005. Paul Simon once came up just for fun to play with Kris Kristofferson and another time did a whole show for a local chef, Sean Rafferty, whose brother did estate work for Paul. Sean was ill at the time and Paul did the concert at no charge." This list of in-the-moment performances grows, with this writer having been at the bar at the Talkhouse one night in the summer of 2009, when Jimmy Buffet suddenly jumped up obstructions and the subway went back to its regular schedule. A further delay occurred later on Thursday around 4 p.m. when a motorman on a westbound train suddenly saw, directly in front of him, one of the crocodiles crash out of one storage room on the south side of the tunnel and into a storage room on the north side just opposite. It did give passengers quite a scare. But after that, there were no further incidents. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL'S MESSAGE I offer our apologies to our straphangers for the inconveniences caused by the shutdown of the system last Tuesday and Wednesday, and then again for that one hour delay on Thursday. As you read this, efforts are being made by the National Guard, which has been mobilized upon my request to the United States Armed Forces, on Wednesday afternoon just after both crocodiles disappeared to find and disable both of these crocodiles. These crocodiles had long been thought to be extinct in America. And scientists are thrilled to learn that at least two of these creatures, both males--we hope there is a female--are down below, nearby to our subway system. For that reason, therefore, the crocodiles will, upon being located, not be killed but captured by the firing of high powered darts tipped with a special sleeping potion to put the beasties to sleep. We also have a plan ready if either of the crocodiles was severely injured during the encounter with the other.

Ludsin CAPTAIN MICROCHIP M KINECT I must admit upfront that I'm not a video game player. I find the challenge of realitybased games hard to master. That being said, when I heard about Microsoft's new Kinect system for the XBox 360, I reconsidered the possibilities. The set-up involves a sleek black Kinect sensor perched beneath the TV screen. You can command "XBox, ESPN" and the screen will respond, "Launching ESPN..." before blooming into a live broadcast of a tennis tournament in Switzerland. Then you can say "XBox," again and the bottom of the screen will display a menu including the options "Live Events," "On Demand Events" and "Highlights." If you choose "Highlights," a menu of basketball, football and baseball recaps appears. If you say "Video 2," a talking head from the San Francisco Giants starts talking about the World Series. You can instruct the XBox to fast forward to four times real speed and then eight times. Once you say, "Play," the picture will snap into perfect focus as the interview continues. You can also view some rocking music tracks from Microsoft's Zune online service.

But there's more. Kinect is clearly the most exciting and important leap forward for interactive home entertainment since Nintendo introduced the Wii four years ago. Nothing since the Wii, certainly not Sony's imitative Move system for the PlayStation 3, approaches the technical achievement of Kinect in reshaping the home media experience. The fact is that when the Kinect is turned on, it memorizes 45 points on your body and reproduces it as an image right on the screen. The image even looks like you. And then, if you get up off the couch, stand up and move around, you can get "you," on the screen in the Kinect Sports section, can play soccer by kicking, or play beach volleyball by jumping, digging, setting and spiking. You can dance to Lady Gaga's music in MTV Games' Dance Central or ride ultrafast skateboards in Sega's Sonic Free Riders. This is radical, dudes. You can plug virtual leaks and navigate river rafts through the rapids in Kinect Adventures. All that while moving around in your living room--and you stay dry! What is key to the magic of this experience is that you don't touch any buttons or actually hold any sort of remote control or electronic device all day. The traditional XBox controller, with 17 different buttons, triggers and sticks, sits dormant on the coffee table. You can do everything by either speaking to the system, waving an arm or moving your body in front of the screen. The Wii brought console gaming back into the mainstream by creating a controller that you could move around. Kinect is bringing console gaming into the future. Kinect is truly inspiring. Microsoft has packaged the fruits of many years and many millions of dollars of research and investment into a product that may finally get the company into millions of living rooms. All that to get us to evolve from coach potatoes to limber athletes. So whether you believe in creationism or intelligent design, we have evolved. I think connecting with Kinect will be worth the effort. And now a standing ovation! ALL YOU CAN ENJOY! TRADITIONAL THANKSGIVING DINNER WITH ALL THE FIXINGS!

Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 danshamptons.com Page 27 TWENTY SOMETHING by David Lion Rattiner The Hawk One of the pleasures of working at Dan's Papers is our next door neighbor, Citarella. I go there just about every day to pick up a cup of morning tea and throughout the day, head over there to get a snack or two to hold me over. I'm kind of a well-known guy in the store because I've been going there for so long. Pretty much everybody there greets me by name. In the summer time, my Citarella experience is very weird because I'm pretty much the only guy that goes there to grab just one item, sometimes I go there just to buy an apple for 50 cents, and I almost never spend over $5.00 at the register. Everybody else however, is gearing up for a big family barbecue at the beach house, spending hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars. The cashiers frequently laugh at me when I make my purchases and I frequently apologize to them for running my credit card to buy one piece of fruit. Anyway, yesterday I headed over there as usual and I saw one of the most remarkable things I've ever seen in my life. Outside the store by the shopping carts, a little brown bird was standing on top of a shopping cart, looking as cute as can be. This bird was like a character in a Disney movie it was so cute. And it was bopping up and down and hopping from one shopping cart to another and I thought to myself, what a wonderful planet we live on to have things like this. And then, just as I thought this, all hell broke loose. I'm not kidding you, a giant hawk, about the size of my arm, swooped in at what seemed like 5,000 miles per hour, with its claws out and its body in full predatory mode, and tackled this little bird that was standing on top of the shopping cart and sent it smashing into the cart. The intensity of this hawk was remarkable. Its eyes were filled with a focus that I don't think I've ever seen before and its movements were violent. Its wings flapped wildly into the grocery cart and its claws slashed over and over again against the cart. The little brown bird it was after had tumbled into the cart and had tucked itself into the corner, trying to escape the hawk's claws. But it was of no consequence, this bird was doomed. As I watched this drama unfold, my entire body was paralyzed with fear and it suddenly hit me that I should try to get this entire event on camera. So I struggled into my pocket to get my iPhone as I watched. As the hawk continued to beat its wings, and claw into the cart, it finally hooked the little bird and pulled it through the cart. Then the hawk flew up out of the cart for a moment, brought its wings to its sides and did a cannon ball with the bird in its claws, and fell a solid three feet to the ground, hitting the pavement, landing on its side with a hard thud. Then it got to its feet, with the bird pinned underneath. And it just stood there for a solid five seconds, looking around as if to say, "You got some kind of problem with this?" and I'm convinced that it looked directly at me. Its head was standing tall and its eyes were piercing and its grip on its prey below was in full control. Then, almost as fast as it swooped in, the hawk extended its wings and flew off with the little bird, only to leave behind a few feathers. Whoa. I couldn't really process what I had just seen. It was just so incredibly violent, fast and amazing. My iPhone was in my hand, but I wasn't fast enough to get any of the event on film and I continued into Citarella. I suddenly felt as if I had a whole new perspective on things as I shopped for my lunch. Just having that one glimpse of the animal kingdom made me feel a deeper sense of life. Subway (continued from page 24) details of this, but the decision will either be to nurse the injured croc back to health at the Riverhead Aquarium, or humanely dispatch it if the wounds are just too bad to repair, with a single shot from an anti-tank weapon to the side of the head.

Galardi This has been the year of the film festival. Recently, the East End has been host to the OLA, Hispanic, Wildlife and Black Film Festivals. What's next? Documentaries, of course, with a local slant. This weekend, The Hamptons Take 2 Film Festival presents a well-planned, day long program of almost a dozen documentaries, screening in two separate places on two different days, from noon to 9:30 p.m. On Saturday, Take 2 is at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center, hosted by Andrew Botsford. Sunday, like Groundhog Day, the exact same program repeats at the Bay Street Theatre, hosted by Bonnie Grice. The festival includes shorts, fulllength, and student docs. Some of the highlights include a 22-minute documentary on Dale Haubrich and Bette Lacini, the two hippies (and I use that word in the most complementary, loving way) who grow and sell organic produce on the Bridge/Sag Turnpike. Directed and edited by Samanthya Schutz, the film follows the history of the couple's farm life together, based on a technique began in 1970. Betty and Dale's Organic Produce screens at 1:00 p.m. Another local, low-key celebrity has his time slot at 2:30 p.m. with the 17-minute film, The Artist and His Model. The man is East Hampton resident Bill King, whose tall, elegant sculpture is at the entrance of Bridgehampton Commons. Another can be seen at the entrance "Hamptons Drive-in" by Howard Kanovitz "Funny Business" by Lidya Ely of Goodfriend Drive and Rte. 114 (the wooden profiles). The film is about King's relationship with one of his model muses. Ever wonder how to get a cartoon published in the ivory tower of The New Yorker? Filmmaker Lidya Ely did, and created a fulllength documentary about that topic, taking the viewer inside the studios of great cartoonists. Her film, Funny Business, shows at 2:30 p.m. Long before the advent of the ATM, there was another kind of drive-in: the drive in movietheater, and there was one in Bridgehampton that closed in 1974. For Hamptons Drive-In, (at 5 p.m.), the late Howard Kanovitz went to the Hamptons Drive-in with his daughter, got out a camera, and recorded the experience of the last outdoor theater in the Hamptons. Two other documentaries caught my eye. Dad's in Heaven with Nixon, (7:00 to 8:45) was shot in Southampton and tells the story of the filmmaker Tom Murray's brother, who has brain damage and autism. Close Harmony, closing out the festival at 9:00 p.m., is 1982 Academy-award winning documentary about a chorus formed between middle school kids and the elderly at a Jewish Seniors Center in Brooklyn. They rehearse separately, and come together for a joint concert. The Festival is just $20 for the entire day/$15 for the evening shows. Just remember, Friday in Westhampton; Saturday in Sag Harbor.

"King of the Hamptons" Screens at Bay Street Dec. 5 By Dan Rattiner On December 5, at 4:00 in the afternoon, Dennis Lynch's documentary, King of the Hamptons will have a one-time screening at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor. The screening will be a benefit for that establishment. There will be wine and cheese served before the performance in the lobby and there will be a question and answer session after this fulllength movie inside the theatre. I am very proud to have been a part of the making of this film. The only real documentary done about the Hamptons and what it has become since its days when it was a farming and fishing community was Barbara Kopple's disastrous film, The Hamptons, made in 2000. She had never been here before. I have no idea what she expected to find when she got here. And she turned out something that did appear once on HBO and then vanished from the scene. Surely those of us who saw it felt very disappointed. Here was an Academy Award winning documentarian turning out a film that presented the Hamptons as if it was something similar to the Jersey Shore. Nothing against the Jersey Shore. But that isn't us. This is not to say that I thought a true documentary of this area should be akin to a travelogue or a puff piece. I felt that somewhere, sometime, somebody would come along to tell the tale of this place, both the good and the bad. That would not be me, although after 50 years running this newspaper, I surely do know what the Hamptons is all about and what makes it tick. What I did not know was that I would, nearly three years ago, be given the opportunity to shepherd a talented, fresh filmmaker into doing that. When that opportunity presented itself, I jumped at it. I met Dennis Lynch on the beach in the spring of 2008. He approached me, a complete it through my eyes. He asked me to take him, a fellow with a wife and kids with a house in Massapequa, Long Island, into my world. "Fifty years running a newspaper here," he said. "You have to know everything." I thought, I sure do. I did not at that first meeting or in the few meetings that followed, ask too much about his private life. What I did do, though, was look at some of his work, mostly right on the Internet on the site he owns called tv360.tv. What I thought I saw was a man with considerable talent with a camera. He could do what I could not. But I could show him what he should do. We actually formed a partnership in the making of this film which as it turned out, became a partnership on the screen. The film is not so much a documentary about the Hamptons as it is a film about a man running away from a mid-life crisis that is nearly destroying both his career and his family. That man was Dennis Lynch. The crisis was his. And the running away part was his determination to come to the Hamptons for the summer all by himself to try to join all the Kings of the Hamptons. It's true I had no idea when we began that this would be what it would be all about. I have come to think that he didn't know that either at the beginning. All I knew was that whatever it was, I was going to see to it that this creative filmmaker got a true picture of teh Hamptons, warts and all. A film about this place needed to be made. The film opens with Dennis Lynch, sitting on the elevated platform at the LIRR train station in Massapequa, having missed his train, flipping through the pages of Dan's Papers, a publication, he tells the audience he is addicted to, wishing he could leave home, go out to the Hamptons for a month, forget his worries (continued on page 31) Dan and Dennis "Dennis and I shared a final beer together when all the editing was finally done (by him) two years and several thousands of hours later." stranger, and introduced himself. He said he recognized me from pictures he'd seen. He told me he did videos and films both on the internet and for television and he had a studio in New York City. And he wondered if I could help him make a full-length movie about this place, by taking him around and introducing him to the world of the Hamptons. To interest me, he flattered me. He told me he thought I was the King of the Hamptons. He said he would try and make the film by seeing Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 danshamptons.com Page 31 Who's King? (continued from page 30) Dan and Alec Baldwin; Billy Joel and Dennis; Dennis and Ed Burns and get to meet all these rich and famous Kings of the Hamptons. Who could he call to guide him along? Maybe the publisher of the newspaper. Those who have seen this movie, which sold out at the Hamptons International Film Festival last month and then sold out again after they added a second showing at the end of the festival, all have said that King of the Hamptons provides a dazzling and magnificent snapshot of the Hamptons, with its highs and lows, wealth and struggles, interesting characters and amazing natural beauty. Weaved through it is Dennis' story and a burgeoning relationship between this virtually obsessed filmmaker and this aging newspaperman, both of whom seem to mean well but have lots of flaws, not the least of which is just getting along with one another. The film has cameo appearances by loads of celebrities of this community, nearly all of whom I roped in for the making of this film-- do you want to be in a full-length documentary about the Hamptons, I queried? Yesses came from Billy Joel, Alec Baldwin, Kim Cattrall, Chuck Scarborough, Mercedes Ruehl and a host of others. There were others too. Dennis, on his own, got filmmaker Ed Burns. My son David, who works at the newspaper, got Dennis access to Sir Ivan, the rock star, castle owner, action figure and wild party host. As for the filmmaking itself, it is flat out wonderful. My favorite scene in the whole movie is Dennis' 32-hour excursion working on a lobster boat off Montauk with two local commercial fishermen who took him on. Dennis survives, gets seasick, joins in setting the pots with the others and in the end gains acceptance in the brotherhood of Bonackers. My second favorite scenes involve a young single mother from Ohio who answers an ad on Craig's List put there by Dennis to get flown to the Hamptons for the weekend and see for herself what the Hamptons is all about. Kate, we loved you. Dennis Lynch and I shared a final beer together when all the editing was finally done (by him) two years and several thousands of hours later. He was sad because it was all over, he was moving on to a new project and would be leaving this behind. I was happy because the showing of this film was just beginning and finally we had something that truly showed what this place was all about--thanks to his filmsmanship and my guidance. Dennis is off with former ABC Anchor John Roland making a film about illegal immigration and he's recently returned from Florida and Ecuador to be here to answer questions about the making of this film on December 5. I hope to see you there. DON'T MISS OUT!

That fact can't be disputed by anyone who has tasted a representative sample of the wines here. To prove it, wineries like The Lenz Winery have hosted blind tastings of its wines up against top-flight wines from Bordeaux. Invariably, the local wines hold their own and even come out on top -- often at far lower prices. To my knowledge, there has never been a blind tasting that pits top wines from Long Island against top wines from both California and France at the same time. After "The Judgement of Riverhead" at Roanoke Vineyards this Saturday night, that will no longer be the case. This tasting, modeled, quite obviously, after "The Judgment of Paris" will include wines made in California and France with scores of 90 or higher by The Wine Advocate or Wine Spectator, with prices ranging from $40 to against top wine from Long Island. The wines will be tasted by a panel of nine mostly local wine and restaurant professionals -- including me -- using a 20-point scale, just like at the original 1976 event in Paris. A group of 55 attendees will also taste and score the wines during the long sold-out event. In all, we'll be tasting 18 wines -- nine chardonnays (three from each region) and nine reds, focusing on Bordeaux varietals (again, three from each region). This is going to be a lot of fun, regardless of the outcome, but I expect the local wines to more than hold their own. I often say that Long Island wines, stylistically anyway, fall somewhere in between California and Bordeaux, though leaning a bit more towards Bordeaux. With the likely inclusion of some reds from Long Island's stellar 2007 vintage though, that leaning might be less obvious. The organizers at Roanoke have assembled a great list of judges -- a group that I'm looking forward to tasting with, and learning from. The judges include, Michael Cinque, retailer, Amagansett Wines and Spirits, Louisa Hargrave, co-founder of Hargrave Vineyard, Michael Kaminski, sommelier and director, , Kareem Massoud, winemaker at , Mike Mraz, owner and beverage director of the , David Milligan, former president of Seagram, Chateau & Estate Wines Co., and the author of "All Color Book of Wine", Tom Schaudel, author, executive chef and owner of and Coolfish restaurants, and Christopher Tracy, winemaker and co-owner, . What will be almost as interesting as the tasting itself is how local wineries decide to promote the outcome. I expect it to be across the board -- from understated to hilariously hyperbolic. Regardless, let the games begin this Saturday night!

This East End tradition is held over Thanksgiving weekend: Friday, Nov. 26, 6-8 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 27, 12:30-4:30 p.m. This year the Opening Night Cocktail Party is at the swank Rollinson House, a grand Regency villa with gardens, located in the Grace Estate. This highly anticipated event is always well attended by the cr�me de la cr�me of the East End social scene. The tour includes six luxurious homes � from historic to modern � painstakingly selected by the 2010 House Tour Committee to represent the unique character and mix of architectural styles that define the East End. The Tour offers the public a unique opportunity to embrace East Hampton's past and imagine its future through a rich, varied architectural journey. House Tour Co-Chair Chip Rae offers this insight into the selection process, "Every year the House Tour Committee starts earlier and earlier to identify an interesting selection of homes for the tour. This year we started in August and, much to our surprise, we had all six homes lined up by mid-September. This is a testimony to the generosity of the owners who donate their homes for this major fundraising effort for the East Hampton Historical Society, and the wealth of attractive properties in this community. We already have offers of houses for next year's tour, which speaks to the success of this Thanksgiving weekend tradition." New this year is the inclusion of two modern homes of distinction. Both are home to local designers: the Michael Katz home is a 1965 David Chait design nestled in the White Pine Forest just outside of East Hampton Village and the modern home of designer Kerry Delrose lies in North West Woods. These two homes offer the public a rare opportunity to experience stellar examples of modern design aesthetics. "Why does the East Hampton Historical Society choose to include modern architecture along with historic on our annual house tour?" asks Richard Barons, EHHS Executive Director. "We believe it is the mix of architectural styles that gives East Hampton its unique character and flavor. Our community enjoys the benefit of having wonderfully diverse architectural styles that span several centuries. Our house tour committee has once again outdone themselves in identifying six different, yet complementary, homes that design enthusiasts and people who want a `look inside' East Hampton will find of interest on this year's house and garden tour." Of particular historical merit is the rambling Queen Anne style home built in 1903 for Henry D. Hedges (1854-1920), a prominent East Hampton native. It was an expensive house, costing nearly $6,000 and occupying 3/4 of an acre. During its recent renovation great care was given to maintain the building's original integrity. Huntting Lane developed rapidly beginning in 1894 as a neighborhood of comfortable homes, with 12 residences and their stables constructed in just a decade. As the community evolved in the first years of the 20th century, Hedges was in the forefront of that change and a beneficiary of it. He attended Clinton Academy, the first chartered academy in New York State (1785-1881). Marrying into the family of whaling captain Ezekiel Howes in 1875, Hedges inherited what was until recently the Pink House Bed and Breakfast on James Lane and its vast home lot The East Hampton home of designer Michael Katz. stretching all the way to Hook Pond. In 1890 Hedges sold that property to the founders of the Maidstone Club, who soon constructed their first clubhouse. Hedges continued to farm neighboring leased parcels, though as the village began to transform into a serious (continued on next page) 1330156 1-800-GOT-JUNK REMOVE YOUR JUNK WITHOUT LIFTING A FINGER $ 1 2 3 Book online at 1800gotjunk.com or call us at 1-800-468-5865.

Adopt a Pet By Susan Galardi This is the time of year when creatures big and small start to come in from the cold. Among those creatures are homeless pets that are in dire need of some holiday spirit. A few things are happening locally to promote adoption of lonely cats and dogs. So before you Google the local puppy mills for the latest over-bred litter, please consider visiting a local shelter to take home an animal that needs one. The Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons (ARF) works with organizations like Best Friends Animal Society, the nationally acclaimed Animal Sanctuary in Utah and the inspiration for the National Geographic program "Dogtown." Together the groups recently rescued 159 dogs from a puppy mill in Missouri. ARF Operations Director, Michele Forrester, along with now available to good homes. The breeds include Shih Tzu's, Pomeranians, Poodles and Chihuahuas. In addition ongoing to the shelter to adopt these dogs, cat lovers can go to ARF's "Fall for a Feline Adapt-a-thon and Fair" on Saturday, November 20 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Southampton Elks Lodge, 605 Country Road 39. There will be plenty of wonderful cats and kittens for adoption, as well as free food, prizes and all you ever needed to know about cats. All ARF animals are microchipped, neutered and up to date on vaccines to their age limit. (For more information call Michele at 631-537-0400 x 207) 90 Daniels Hole Road, Wainscott. The Southampton Animal Shelter in Hampton Bays has dubbed November "adopt a senior pet month." For any pet over 7 years old, adoption fees are waived. At an adopt-a-thon last Saturday at the Bridgehampton Commons K-Mart, a senior dog was adopted by Zina Glazebrook of Shelter Island, who wrote, "Sometimes, a dog just gets your attention. That is the way I felt on Saturday at your event... There was Ernie in his splendid houndstooth jacket. He had been a rescue before... in 2004... He was emaciated, fur matted, teeth rotting, heartworm infested � not a happy dog. You took him in, fixed all the dings and dents, and here is Ernie today. [See photo] He even has a micro chipped ID."

He became one of the village's most prominent merchants, as well as its tax assessor, school board president and a trustee of the Presbyterian Church. This house is now a prominent feature of the Huntting Lane Historic District. Also of historical interest is an original Aymar Embury II home. Embury, who lived from 1880 to 1966, was one of America's leading architects of country houses, particularly noted for his Long Island mansions. This house is a fine example of Dutch Colonial Revival Architecture, popular in America between the late 19th and mid 20th centuries. A tantalizing invitation to "look behind the privet hedge" is offered at both an elegant waterfront home in the shingle style and a recently completed estate on Hither Lane. Sparing no expense, these newer homes draw upon East End architectural heritage to create state-of-the-art dwellings. The East Hampton Historical Society serves the residents and visitors of East Hampton by collecting, preserving, presenting and interpreting the material, cultural and economic heritage of the town and its surroundings. They rely on public support of their efforts to preserve and celebrate East Hampton history and culture in the 21st Century. Attendees of the EHHS House Tour are invited to go inside all the homes. They may visit the homes in any order, but a logical order, based on proximity, is suggested in the House Tour Brochure, available the weekend of the tour, upon purchase of a ticket.

Galardi William Gibson's play, The Miracle Worker, based on the true story of a blind teacher (Annie Sullivan) hired to tutor the deaf and blind Helen Keller, won four Tony-awards, including Best Play, when it hit Broadway in 1959. The 1962 film version garnered still more awards � two of which went to the lead actresses, Anne Bancroft as Annie Sullivan and Patty Duke as Helen Keller. Hard enough when a new production has to live up to the definitive Broadway run. Even harder when the stellar performances by the leading ladies was forever captured on film. So in its Literature Live! production of The Miracle Worker, Bay Street Theatre had its work cut out for it. The fact that they pulled off such a convincing production is no less than a miracle. Not that Bay Street doesn't give us great productions � but this one was "challenged." Bay Street Artistic Director Murphy Davis, who directed this production, cut the play from nearly three hours to 90 minutes, and the cast from about a dozen to just 5 characters, totally exposing the play and the actors. Let's talk about the latter. Really, it's all about Annie and Helen, and those performances were first rate. Lily Spellman, an 11-year-old Hampton Bays Middle School student, was solid in her conception and execution of this difficult role � so natural and totally believable. What an impressive young actress. I also really enjoyed actress/playwright Kate Gersten as Annie Sullivan. She gave the role a Jerry Lamonica Gersten as Sullivan; Spellman as Helen Keller light, funny, self-deprecating twist � so different from the Bancroft take, but so convincing and solid that any memories were obliterated soon into the play. The icing on the cake is that the two actors worked very well together. The knock-down-dragout (literally) dining room scene was great choreography. Kudos on that to Davis, who kept the action moving in the play, which is dialogue heavy despite the fact that Helen never speaks. Ken Forman was well cast as the Southern gentleman Captain Keller. Jacqueline Murphy put in an able performance as his compliant wife (who refers to him always as "Captain" � sheesh). Beryl Bernay brought a lot of passion to Aunt Ev. Peter Connolly, triple cast as the Doctor, Anagnos, and Helen's half-brother James, was most successful as the latter � a grown child jealous of Helen's attention, and the lack of his own from his father. This was the only slight flaw for me � not Connolly, but what was left of the dynamic between James and his father the Captain once an hour of the play ended up on the drawing room floor. There was just no time to develop nor flesh out that relationship. Gary Hygom's work as set designer, always impressive, was clean, balanced and orderly � pointing more to the future serenity in the home than current dysfunction. The palette was calming browns, whites and tans, save for the red water pump and large tin basin in front. Costumes by Barbara Oldak and Greg Wilson totally worked, as did the myriad sound cues. Take your kids to see this. It's a classic, very well done. My theater companions were two seven year old boys. They were riveted. The Miracle Worker. Bay Street Theatre, Long Wharf, Sag Harbor.

I'm always asked to bring my mom's vegetable caramelized onion stuffing and spiced sweet potato puree. I look forward to preparing these dishes along with the spiced nut nibble. Have a joyous and Happy Thanksgiving. VEGETABLE STUFFING WITH CARAMELIZED ONION There are no surprises in my mother's hand-medown recipe. Just good old-fashioned flavor. Yield: 8-10 cups 7-8 cups day-old bread cubes from day-old challah or crusty, French or Italian loaf 1 1/4 -1/2 cups water 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil 4 onions, thinly sliced 1 large carrot, trimmed and cut into 1/4-inch dice 3 ribs celery, trimmed, well washed and thinly sliced 1 fennel bulb, trimmed and cut into 1/4-inch dice Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper 1/2 pound mushrooms, button, shitake or mixed, rinsed, trimmed and sliced 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley 2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage leaves 1 1/2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives 1 egg, beaten with 1/2 cup chicken stock 1. Put the bread cubes in a large mixing bowl and pour over the water. Reach under the bread with Thanksgiving for me is one of the most joyous holidays. Sure I love to cook and look forward to cooking and sharing the bountiful feast with all the trimmings. Preparing all the dishes for the holiday is no easy feat and more often than not it is a shared experience. An acceptable practice indeed! If Aunt Suzy and Cousin Jane would like to participate by all means accept graciously. Strategy for the meal should be planned ahead. Ideally the hosts prepare the big bird or any other main dish for the feast and perhaps the soup, not an easily transportable item. But certainly side dishes such as potato purees and vegetable roasts in their own heat-proof serving dishes that can be reheated while the bird is resting before carving. All manner of cranberry sauces and desserts are a welcome gift with recipes you've been thinking about and simply just have to make. The table is set the day before with all the accoutrements � and for many that is the fun part. Greet your guests with just a bowl of spiced nuts to nibble. Remember the holiday table will be abundant. clean hands and lift the bread in the liquid to moisten all the cubes. Set aside. 2. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons each of olive and vegetable oil in a large, 12-inch skillet, and put in the onions. Saute for 3-4 minutes and add carrot, celery and fennel, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are lightly caramelized, about 12-15 minutes. Transfer to a side dish to cool. 3 In the same skillet the vegetables cooked in heat remaining tablespoon oil with the butter and put in the mushrooms. Saute mushrooms for a minute or two and add the garlic. Season with salt and pepper and continue to cook, tossing the ingredients for 3-4 minutes more. Let cool.

"Stir up we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people; that they plenteously bring forth the fruits of good work." A rather literal translation of this passage informs the earliest event anticipating Christmas � the mixing of the Christmas pudding. Homemade puddings (rich cakes) take time for the flavor of their spices to mellow and deepen and for dried fruits to plump up and soften before baking. About a month, in fact. This year "Stir Up Sunday," the Sunday before Advent begins, falls on November 21. Tradition holds that after church on this day, families gather round the pudding ingredients and take turns giving it a "lucky mix" while making a silent wish. How's that for blending the Pagan with Christianity? A coin is added to the ingredients and whoever finds it in his or her slice on Christmas Day is said to enjoy good fortune for the following year. Those silly English. In other words, fruitcakes are not just doorstops afterall. Silvia (continued from page 37) 4. Add the vegetables, mushrooms, parsley and sage to the moistened bread and toss to mix. Stir in the beaten egg and stock and mix until ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. Can be prepared up to two days ahead to this point. Transfer to a buttered 2 quart baking dish or covered casserole. Refrigerate covered up to one day ahead. Preheat oven to 350 degrees 5.

Apart from weekly editorial meetings, this is how things generally get settled here at Dan's: STACY: "Hey, have you ever tried wine from Water's Crest Winery?" SUSAN: "No." STACY: "We should get some samples to try." SUSAN: "Why not?" DAVID: "Yes!" Associate Editor Stacy Dermont is an instigator, Managing Editor Susan Galardi is the decider and Sections Editor David Rattiner is up for adventure. Dan's North Fork sales rep Jean Lynch brought in a whole case of Water's Crest wines and we got to work � after hours, in our homes, of course. The favorites that emerged were Water's Crest full-bodied "Campania Rosso" 2007, their 2009 Dry Reisling, which offers an interesting, minerally finish and their 2005 Cabernet Franc. Our opinions were validated when we found all three wines among wine expert Michael Kaminski's list at the new top restaurant Luce + Hawkins in Jamesport. Of course we all have our own opinions when it comes to wine. David and Stacy both endorse Wolffer's Big Apple Wine, which was just given a recommendation in The New York Times. Susan likes that winery's popular Rose. At HARVEST wine auction and tasting, Susan tried and was impressed by Mattebella's 2009 Rose and Palmer's Sauvignon Blanc, both from the North Fork, as well as Channing's Meditazione. David is a big merlot fan, particularly those from Corey Creek and Bedell Cellars. All three of us have been working our way (continued on page 41) & Wine Tours at Hotel Indigo By Betty Sands Hotel Indigo, the newest addition to the East End accommodations scene offered Complete Wine Tour Packages including transportation for the first time this season. These tours are still avalaible to groups of ten or more people. Hotel Indigo just opened this past Labor Day weekend with a celebrity-studded bash. It is fast becoming a destination hot spot. According to coowner and Senior Vice President of Jaral Properties, Inc., Rob Salvatico, "The North Fork wineries are a unique attraction." 2010 has been one of the warmest, driest years on record on Long Island. Though the bulk of the grapes harvested in this vintage won't be bottled until 2013, 2007 was also a particularly good year for Long Island wines - so there's a lot to drink. The East End of Long Island is considered to be the most exciting wine region in the world right now according to experts including Michael Kaminski and Roman Roth. This particular vintage is sure to boost the region's recognition further. Popular tastes are shifting toward elegant Long Island wines such as crisp chardonnay, merlot, and cabernet franc. They are coming from grapes grown primarily in clay soil. The saline minerality of East End wines is a unique characteristic, resultant of vineyards being so close to salt water. More and more, consumers are turning away from big, oaky, high alcohol wines typical of California. With wineries large and small offering a full spectrum of flavor, it's the ideal time for an East End wine tour. Hotel Indigo offers weekend tour packages with roundtrip transportation from New York and Nassau County on Hampton Luxury Liners followed by an in-depth tour of the region's wineries, including: Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard, Sparkling Pointe, Peconic Bay, Bedell Cellars, Castello di Borghese, and a special bonus, a stop at Long Island's only vodka distillery, LiV. This ultimate day tour package concludes with an exclusive afterparty at Hotel Indigo's newly opened Bistro 72 featuring haute cuisine by award-winning Food Network chef Lia Fallon. The noted chef draws from local sources for a popular "farm to table" menu, offering a culinary pastiche of entrees crafted from locally grown produce and meats. For those guests who wish to make it a full weekend, Hotel Indigo is offering accommodations at special rates in brand new, elegantly appointed rooms with white glove amenities, including: complimentary VOSS water, Wi-Fi service, plasma televisions with full cable service, marble bathrooms, hardwood floors, and gorgeous, downy beds with hand woven linens and quilted comforters. Hotel Indigo is located at 1830 West Main Street, Route 25 in Riverhead, easily accessible off Exit 72 of the Long Island Expressway (and right next door to Tanger Outlet). For more information or to book an excursion, call the hotel at 631-369-2200. All credit cards are accepted. Bookings are now being accepted for next years tour packages. "The best thing about the tours," adds Salvatico "is it is a truly fun, interesting, novel way to celebrate New York State and all things New York. Why not give back to our economy and support local, high quality merchants? We speaialize in getting people to where they want to be.."

Weiss been popular. From their inception in Holland during the 17th Century and continuing in American colonial painting during the18th Century, such works are still with us. Some attribute this popularity to the close-up of details that still life offers compared to landscape. Another reason might be the familiarity of objects taken from everyday life and the comfort it brings. Yet the Parrish exhibit offers other reasons. While there are outstanding examples of typical still lifes, including William Merritt Chase's work featuring a cockatoo, William Aiken Walker's angel fish and George Constant's etching of jugs, there are noteworthy variations. Atypical still lifes are not only bold but give a different perspective to familiar objects. For example, there's Fairfield Porter's "Couple with Pears and Chrysanthemums" featuring figures, fruit and flowers. The viewers get a more precise idea of this family when we see a young man and woman surrounded by such pleasurable and comfort-inducing items. Philip Guston uses figures in his still life as well: abstract, almost surreal cartoon characters. Some individuals also employ art materials in their work. Such objects are not familiar to the general spec- There's much to commend the current show, "American Still Life," at Southampton's Parrish Museum. First, the examples are comprehensive and include contemporary, innovative works. Simply put, we don't just experience vases filled with flowers, the stereotypical view of "still life." Second, the wall texts are concise and organized, unlike some written explanations for museum exhibits. Finally, some selections are real surprises. We might start by pondering why still lifes have Chase's Still Life with Cockatoo tator but are commonplace to the artist; their depiction signifies how creators consider tools of the trade. Jim Dine's "Little Blue Palette" and Fairfield Porter's brushes and jars are two good examples. Other still lifes may exist to reinforce a style or art movement like Roy Lichtenstein's "Apple with Brushstrokes" (Pop Art) and Richard Combs' conceptual piece, "Spent Cases," with an upside down canoe extended in the air and empty shell cases from guns scattered on the ground. Idiosyncratic still lifes also abound � namely Billy Sullivan's gestural flower in a vase (we're used to seeing his portraits). Joe Zucker's cotton rug-like piece uses flowers to emphasize the aesthetic quality of texture; the blossoms become a means to an end. What's endearing about the exhibit, however, does not concern popularity. It's rather the scope and variety of what's considered a subject for still life. Two cases in point are works by Li Lan (addressed envelopes) and Larry Rivers (100 French notes). These are genuine common objects that are given beauty and distinction through the artists' gaze. The current show will be on view at the Parrish Museum through Nov. 28, 2010. Call 631-283-2118. Sag Harborneed of Pantry Food is in HOLIDAY FOOD DONATIONS!

Baldwin also describes her work as "different" from her previous pieces; she usually paints in a more realistic style. Regardless, Southampton's Cooper's Beach, which inspired this cover, is still a favorite site. Baldwin's professional pursuits were also different. In the hotel business for 37 years, she was a senior V.P. for global sales by the time she retired in 2005. Q: What's your favorite hotel? A: One was the Gritti Palace in Venice. Q: I bet you couldn't help checking out hotel art. A: Yes. It's different in European hotels where there are original works on the walls versus here in America where there are mostly prints. 1329793 (continued on next page) Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT danshamptons.com Page 43 The American Dream, Revealed By T.J. Clemente Ingrid Lemme, Director of Marketing and PR for Gurney's Inn and Spa, is well into the 13th season of her popular TV program, "The American Dream Show," and the line-up is once again a good mix of captivating Long Island personalities. Produced and directed by brothers Ernest and Gregory Schimizzi, "The American Dream Show" zeroes in on the heritage, family and the dreams of celebrities and successful local people, as host Lemme provides her viewers with the inside story on how those dreams became a reality. Recorded at Gurneys and aired on WVVH Hamptons TV (channel 78), "The American Dream Show" goes out to over five million homes in the tristate area. The award-winning program showcases Lemme's astute interviewing skills--she has sat down with around 500 guests over the years in a live format. Lemme has a way of delving into each guest's story to bring out the gems of experiences that help define who they really are. The viewer is witness to this "getting to know you" process. A highlight of the most recent taping session, where an astounding 10 shows were produced, was the segment with Aida Turturro--Montauk resident/TV ("The Sopranos") and film star, who talked about why she has adopted Montauk as her new home. The show with Angelique Monet, who founded the Black Film Festival, was also engaging--and entertaining, as the actress showed off her ventriloquist skills. In another program, Lemme explores the styles and insights of Cognac Wellerlane, the red carpet celebrity interviewer on the East End. Lemme had an in-depth interview with Dennis Lynch, the documentary filmmaker who created King of the Hamptons, which premiered at the 2010 Hamptons International Film Festival. Dan and David Rattiner introduce Lynch to their world in the Hamptons which includes Billy Joel, Alec Baldwin and Christie Brinkley. On Lemme's show, Lynch talks about his background, family and dreams, and how he came to meet Dan. Another fascinating segment was the interview of Cindi Sansone-Braff, author of the relationship book, Grant Me a Higher Love. Voted the leading Long Island Psychic for 2010 by the L.I. Press along with John Edward, Sansone-Braff is fascinating. Shows that have already aired included one with Howard Shapiro M.D, author of the Picture Perfect Weight Loss Book series, and another with Patricia Brett, a cancer survivor who created Patricia Brett Mastectomy Swimwear � a powerful, wonderful story.

The show with Jonathan Landsman, noted health advocate and host of the "Natural News Hour," is very informative. The final show of the year is Peter Verecke, the "Mick Jagger" in the Rolling Stones tribute band "Streetfighter." Clips show Verecke's talent at recreating Mick's magic and energy. With the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean, "The American Dream Show" provides a forum where interesting stories are brought to the fore by Lemme, (continued on next page) Honoring (continued from previous page) Q: You've been to a lot of places. Where would you like to visit again? A: Italy and the Loire Valley in France. I'd like to go to Australia and New Zealand. Q: Did you and your husband ever want to own your own hotel? A: When we lived in Phoenix, we investigated buying a hotel in the Hamptons, but it didn't work out. Q: You liked this area. A: I grew up here. The Hamptons are absolutely spectacular. I love the water and the sky. Q: And now you're painting this beautiful scenery. How did you get into art? A: My mother painted, but I never knew how she had the time; I was the oldest of 16 children. I enjoyed painting from an early age, but I became a teacher because I thought I couldn't make a living as an artist. Q: How did your travel influence your life? Your art? A: I notice more things when I travel; I get a different perspective about people and how they live. As far as art goes, I notice colors and shapes more and the constant variations in color and light. Q: How will your work be different in the future? A: I want to do more abstraction and experiment more. I want to do something different. � Marion Wolberg Weiss Marietta Baldwin can be reached through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. 1330166 Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT danshamptons.com Page 44 ART OPENINGS & GALLERIES For more events happening this week, check out: North Fork Calendar pg: 32 Kid Calendar pg: 35 Day by Day Calendar pg: 45 AMG-Amagansett; BRDG-Bridgehampton; EHEast Hampton; EP-Eastport; GP-Greenport; HBHampton Bays; JP-Jamesport; MV-Manorville; MTK-Montauk; NO-Noyac; PC-Peconic; Q-Quogue; RB-Remsenberg; RVHD-Riverhead; SGH-Sag Harbor; SGK-Sagaponack; SH-Southampton; SHDSouthold; SI-Shelter Island; SPG-Springs; WMWater Mill; WH-Westhampton; WHB-Westhampton Beach; WS-Wainscott OPENINGS AND EVENTS ELIZABETH SLOAN TYLER EXHIBITION � At Guild Hall in East Hampton, runs until November 28.

Dear Dan, When is enough, enough? When will the MTA and the LIRR stop pumping billions into a broken commuter system, making costly mistakes in its upgrades and raising commuter rates? In the October 22, 2010 Newsday Special Report, the LIRR listed many upgrades completed or projected. Among them was the replacement of old M1 trains with the new M-7s. The LIRR failed to acknowledge that it made an expensive blunder by ordering M-7 trains that were too narrow which resulted in the "Watch the Gap Campaign" at a cost of more than $40 million. In this same report the LIRR President said there would be no further electrification of the system because it "may not improve service enough to warrant the expense." Yet, in an October 23, 2008 Newsday article she acknowledged that the diesel fleet inherently required a lot of maintenance. In fact diesel technology is 100 years old, is noisy, pollutes the environment and wastes fuel. If the LIRR had updated or electrified its diesel fleet 25 years ago, like many other railroads have done, it would have cost less to do it then, saved fuel costs, provided better service, and been better for the environment Clearly, the LIRR cannot handle big operating issues, nor can it handle simple tasks. For more than five weeks it has been upgrading the street crossing at Osborne Avenue in Riverhead. At the beginning of the project the pavement was severely torn-up. There has not been one warning or caution signs posted since the project began. On any number of days there have been four trucks at the site with workers standing around doing nothing. Now work has stopped. A private contractor would have completed this project by now and it probably would have cost much less. The only things the LIRR does well include, mismanaging its operations and planning strategy, allowing unions to dominate, and finding ways to secure a commuter payroll tax and increase commuter fares to pay for its mistakes. Were the LIRR a publicly held corporation, top management would be replaced and a new business model would be implemented. Where are the MTA Board members and State legislators who are supposed to oversee the LIRR and act in the best interest of the public? If they are not willing to assume their responsibilities because it is not politically advantageous for them to do so, perhaps it is time for all of them to be replaced. Long Islanders, and those using the railroad to visit the region deserve better. Robert A. Lorelli Robert Lorelli Associates, Inc. Speonk If they are replaced, who will run the railroad? � DR RESTORE AND RETURN! Dear Dan, The Southampton Students' lawsuit went back to Court November 4. Judge Paul J. Baisley Jr. has ordered Stony Brook University to appear at an expedited hearing in Supreme Court Riverhead. The issue: Whether the Stony Brook University (SBU) Council's resolution supporting the president's closure decision satisfies the court's ruling. At the October 4, SBU Council meeting, it was stated that operating the college at Southampton was "a luxury" that the university can't afford, yet the Council then stated that they are considering operating other colleges there, including an arts college. If they "can't afford" the college that was Send your letters to firstname.lastname@example.org (e-mails only, please) there, how can they afford to create and operate new colleges at that location? Just to make it clear to all: The Southampton students and parents are not fighting to re-open just any college at Southampton or replace what was there with something else. Our efforts are specifically to "Restore The Sustainability College And Return Its Programs And Environmental Students" to Southampton first and foremost � and then grow the college with the expansion of the arts programs and the addition of new programs. With the state of the environment and the move of all kinds of businesses towards sustainability practices, these programs and their graduates are sought after and will be in ever increasing demand. There is a need for the kinds of programs that the Southampton sustainability college offered and the kinds of students it educated. Our main focus in this continuing battle is to "Reinstate The Sustainability College" and its cutting-edge programs that were 1st in the nation, way ahead of the curve and the wave of the future. The sustainability programs and those students belong on the sustainable campus that they created at Southampton. Julie Semente Staten Island Perhaps the college was not sustainable? � DR SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL FOR TIME AND GENEROSITY Dear Dan, The Quogue Wildlife Refuge enjoyed its most successful Halloween events in history, thanks in large part to 140 amazing volunteers, as well as a variety of area businesses and organizations that donated goods and items. Without them, these events would not have been such a huge success. This year's Spooky Walks and Enchanted Forest Trails brought nearly 2,000 visitors to the Refuge, many of whom braved chilly temperatures to hike the dark trails for a frighteningly good time during the 17th annual Spooky Walk, held on October 22 and 23. Meanwhile, our younger friends stopped by the Refuge during the daytime to take part in the Enchanted Forest Trails on October 24 and 30. Participants were introduced to various educational forest characters, including Mother Earth and Mr. and Mrs. Litterbug, who shared important information about the Quogue Wildlife Refuge and its inhabitants. A good time was had by all, and in the end, more than $15,000 was raised! Special thanks to following businesses and organizations, each of which donated goods, items, and labor during our events: Civil Air Patrol, 9 and 10 Cadet Squadron, the Quogue Police Department and Fire Department; Quogue Country Market; Talmage Farm Agway; Fairview Farms; Walter Zilnicki Farm; Seaside Electric; Love of Learning; The Southampton Press; Timberland; Reptile Rob's and Westhampton True Value. Their overwhelming generosity is sincerely appreciated, and we are fortunate to have individuals such as these helping us to continue our mission. Sincerely, Michael and Marisa Nelson Quogue Wildlife Refuge Directors All the animals thank you too. � DR POLICE BLOTTER Crazy Deer Apparently, according to the woman's statement anyway, a deer in East Hampton ran out of the woods and then ran directly at her car, head first and killed itself. That Stings Bow-shikka-wow-wow. A police sting in Riverside rounded up six people in a prostitution ring that involved four men and two women. The two women serviced up to $2,700 a day in cash, charging "Johns" $30 dollars each. We did the math. That's 90 guys a day between two women. Ewww. Shelter Island While pruning, Old Man McGumbus was tying his hedges together with intentions of putting a burlap over them, when he heard something strange. He came down from his ladder to investigate and found his nightmare, two hippies were Hacky Sacking out on the street in full public view, as he observed them through his binoculars. He called the authorities and planned an emergency meeting for the Shelter Island League of Extraordinary Gentlemen at the soda pharmacy. He then took a banana and threw it as hard as he could in the direction of the hippies. No More Facebook A computer was stolen out of a car in East Hampton after a woman left her car door unlocked. The computer was in a Marc Jacobs bag. Fail A man attempting to hide the fact that he was intoxicated while driving in Southampton tried drinking mouthwash when police arrived at his vehicle. But in the end, he just smelled like a minty version of Jack Daniels. Bad Charges A man in East Hampton reported that unauthorized charges to his credit card took place last month that included a trip to Tahiti and other various luxuries. Sadly, the man said that he has not been on a vacation in five years. It's time to vacation friend! The Bird Last weekend a man reported to police that a driver threw garbage at him and then gave him the middle finger while driving. That is all. Hit With a Banana A man on the North Fork reported that he was hit with a Banana. � By David Lion Rattiner Dan's Papers November 19, 2010 danshamptons.com Page 47 Chimney Place Your Ad Here (631) 537-4900 Fencing & Gates East End Fence & Gate (631) EAST END email@example.com (631) 327-8363 Painting / Papering Mastercraft Painting & Powerwashing firstname.lastname@example.org mastercraft-painting.net Roofing Line Roofing & Siding (631) 287-5042 www.631LINE.com Solar Energy Wondrous Window Designs www.wondrouswindowdesigns.com Alternative Energy Systems, Inc.
