Polo Here! But Polo With No Ponies. Dress Up. Look Beautiful. By Dan Rattiner The Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge, the series of polo matches that drew crowds of thousands to the Bridgehampton Polo Club at Two Trees Farm every Saturday for the last 10 summers, has breathed its last. The farm owner, David Walentas, and the tenant, a corporation consisting of several wealthy polo players, have been unable to come to terms to renew the lease. Polo is done. For those of us who enjoyed the series, a spectacular event covering nearly 100 acres with horses, a cocktail tent, celebrities, television commentators and lots of special drinks and food given out free by eager sponsors, I think there may be a way to continue to have Bridgehampton Polo without actually having Bridgehampton Polo. To do that, we must parse the different elements that made it up. Some of Bridgehampton Polo WAS Bridgehampton Polo. Some of it WASN’T Bridgehampton Polo. If we look at each, we can decide what has to come in and what has to be left out. Probably the single most important thing is the fact that for the 10 years we had, every Saturday afternoon in the summertime, BRIDGEHAMPTON POLO. It is the sport of kings. Far and wide, in Palm Beach, in Palm

seen. There were paparazzi about. There were T.V. cameras about. The idea was to get a photo of you in the papers and magazines saying you were there watching the polo. You dressed to the nines if you knew what you were doing. Big floppy white hat. Jewelry. Designer duds. Even better—there is better? Yes there is—was to arrive at polo and walk around under the V.I.P. tent wearing jodhpurs, boots and riding jackets— maybe a little splattered with mud—so it looked like you just got done riding and your horse was getting washed down in a barn so you thought you’d stop by to watch the polo. I once went to polo and watched the polo. It is a very simple sport with very complicated rules. It’s about fast ponies from South America, about young Argentine polo players who have been flown in for the occasion. It’s about a pitch that is twice the size of a football field so for most of the action, because there are no stands at all anywhere and instead you are just down on ground level, you can’t even figure out what is going on. Every once in a while a referee on a horse whips a flag in the air. Everybody cheers. It gets difficult watching polo. After awhile you don’t want to watch the polo. It is also about two or three or four teams, each one of which is led by a very wealthy and athletic Hamptons resident at least 50 years of age who is paying for all this but at the same time has been taught to play by the Argentineans, although not as well as the Argentineans, although miles and miles better than you or me, and so has been put on the team as someone to rally around and possibly make the deciding

It is very important that the world continues to be told that the Hamptons still has polo.

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.

Springs, in Beverly Hills, along the Riviera, in Newport, wherever well-to-do people gathered for polo, the word got out that the Hamptons also had Bridgehampton Polo. This was no small thing. It affected real estate prices. It affected restaurant prices. It affected hotel prices. It affected fashionable clothing prices. The rich demand the best and are willing to pay the price. Having polo meant, if you will pardon the expression, that the Hamptons Made the Team. You don’t hear about Bay Shore Polo. You don’t hear about Atlantic City Polo or Myrtle Beach Polo. The Hamptons has polo. It is therefore very important that the world continues to be told that the Hamptons still has polo. So, whether we like it or not, even if we don’t have polo, we have to have the belief in important places around the world that we do have polo. So “polo” has to stay. And since Two Trees is known as the place where they have polo, but is now a place without polo, this is the perfect place to continue it. The next thing to realize is that it was never about the polo. It was about watching polo, or more specifically, about watching the people watching the polo. Truth be told, you came to watch the polo to be

Mickey Mouse Rules Town to Follow the Corporate Policies of Walt Disney World By Dan Rattiner Everybody in the Hamptons is getting really cranky this month. Winter is not quite over. Money is tight. Everybody is worried about their jobs. Are we going to have another blizzard? We had three. Tornado? We had one last summer. Tsunami? None yet. But you better keep an eye out. So tempers are short. Last week, we had the Southampton Town Highway Superintendent yelling publicly at the Town Supervisor telling her the potholes were his business, not hers. She replied that that was her business and the superintendent was supposed to report to her.

In Montauk, everybody is up in arms about the proposed solution to the summer ice cream wagon turf wars about who gets to park at which beaches. The plan is to have the ice cream wagon people bid on the sites at an auction next month, with beginning bids starting at $4,000 and going up from there. It’s another tax and tax and tax program to get revenue for the town, said a concerned citizen. And it’s something new. There has never been a charge for locations before. Will the small ice cream wagon people be driven out of business? Others fears that the truck spot at East Lake Beach won’t get any bids and so won’t have any service at all.

In East Hampton Village this week, the village board began to consider a ban on smoking in our parks, beaches and just outside the entrances of the municipal buildings. Those not having death wishes should not have to walk through the smoke of those who do. And in East Hampton Town, the municipality in which the Village sits, the Supervisor there wants to crack down on the number of cars parked in the driveways of private homes. There are already laws on the books about this. It’s time to take them seriously. Maybe even to reduce the numbers. (continued on page 20)

ADJUST TIME HOW? IS IT FALL DOWN, SPRING UP? By Dan Rattiner I look across the room to the little clock on the mantelpiece over the bedroom fireplace. It’s 8:15 in the morning. Sunday morning. We can sleep late. I think, that’s nice, but this isn’t the usual time I wake up. Usually I wake up at 6:30. I go downstairs, make coffee, take out my laptop and quietly write awhile. She usually gets up around eight. Was I really that tired to sleep until 8:15? We hadn’t gone to bed all that late. Hmmm. I quietly get up and go into the bathroom and brush my teeth. I turn on the little radio there, keeping the sound down low. There’s more news about the nuclear problems in Japan. It’s late in the afternoon there, the announcer says. You can see the steam being emitted from one of the reactors. I return to bed and snuggle up with my wife spoon fashion to gently wake her. 8:15 is not far off from when she wakes up. Now we’ll start the day together. “What time is it?” she asks. She’s still got her

eyes closed. “8:15,” say I. “So says the clock.” “No. I mean with Daylight Savings Time.” I had forgotten. “Then it’s 7:15,” I said. “Sorry I woke you.” That explains things, I thought. I’m up. She’s not. “Sleep a bit more,” say I. “Okay,” says she. But I liked the snuggling up with her, so I don’t move away. We had discussed which way the clocks move the night before, when we were driving home from dinner in Southampton. I had argued we move the clocks back. She had argued we move them forward. I don’t know. I was pretty tired by that time. Outside, it was nearly freezing. There was a wind. Seemed like fall. Looked like fall in the dark there. “It’s fall back,” she said. “And spring forward.” I’d had one drink. That’s all it takes. I get very witty. “I thought it was fall down and spring up,” said I. We continued on. I thought, we move the clocks back. That was that.

Now I thought, well, that explains all this morning confusion. It happened in the night. I’d missed it. All the clocks will have to be reset. I thought about all the clocks in the house. Most of them have a little battery in the back, so all you have to do is push the little hand back an hour. We have an old electric clock on a mantelpiece in the living room though. It bongs the hour. It does it very slowly, like Big Ben in London, bong…bong…bong. It’s no problem setting the clock forward. You just open the glass door and slowly wind the big hand fully around once. It bongs the extra hour as it passes 12. What does it know? Setting it back is a pain, though. You have to pull its plug for an hour, then plug it back in. If you forget, it’s a bigger problem. I love that old clock. There’s a little wooden door on the back you can open to look at the gears. There’s a label on the inside of the door that reads American Clock Company. Under it is a lightning bolt and the words Fully Electrified. It must have been made just after they invented (continued on next page)

goal, or chukker or whatever it is called. Bridgehampton Polo is also about sponsorships. Mercedes-Benz sponsored Bridgehampton Polo for many years, offering $100,000 and a silver cup to whichever team won the most matches during the summer. There were places under the V.I.P. tent which were rented out to architects, to makers of expensive jewelry, to liquor manufacturers with special drinks, and to restaurants who made special canapĂŠs that were given out for free to the V.I.P.s to get them to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey that is pretty good, I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll eat there tomorrow night.â&#x20AC;? You could also buy things that said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bridgehampton Poloâ&#x20AC;? on them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; canvas bags, shirts, hats etc. Sometimes there were even

masseuses under the tent who would rub your shoulders or put really, really good oil on parts of you which you were willing to expose to them for brief amounts of time. There were also red velvet ropes, tables with lists of people to let in and keep out by giving you or not giving you red or yellow rubber bracelets, big beefy men with earpieces and their arms folded and all sorts of media peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;glossy magazine people, newspaper people, guidebook people, Internet people, T.V. people, radio people and so forth and so on. And there was also this smell of manure. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of those things people learn to live with when there are horses around. So it was part of Bridgehampton Polo.

And so, if you have read this far, you realize that it is absolutely possible to have Bridgehampton Polo into the future without having anybody actually playing any polo. As a matter of fact, without having all those horses around, it will be a little easier on your nose as you go about your business at Bridgehampton Polo. You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that smell. Unless you want to have a spray can of the smell. I am sure that somewhere thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a firm that sells spray cans of the smell of manure. They have spray cans of everything else. It will be a smell that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t harm the environment, that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t harm you, that is recyclable and in the end, something to remind you youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at polo, but without the flies. I see only one problem with all of this. If you put a sign up across the Montauk Highway saying Come to Bridgehampton Polo at Two Trees and with arrows pointing, people will be expecting, along with the paparazzi, the celebrities, the hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvres and drinks all the spirited ponies, the handsome Argentines with the slicked back black hair, the referees with the flags and the cleanup people at the end. But they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be there. I suggest that we look at this another way. On the signs, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call it Bridgehampton Polo. Call it Hampton Pollo (and sell BBQ chicken), or Hampton Pillow or Hampton Bolo (I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what.) People will know the code. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be so happy itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back. And they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to put up with it for even a minute.

electricity. They were proud they had put the electricity into their clock. I thought, well, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chore for the morning, resetting all the clocks. I think there are six all together. There are the clocks in the two guest rooms, one in the study, one on the wall in the kitchen. Also one in the master bedroom. The digital stove clock, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, nobody has ever figured out. Six months itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right on, six months itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an hour off. When we have company and we go to sit in the kitchen, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right there, glowing, and all the guests see we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the hell we are doing. At least six months a year they see that. I carefully slipped back out of bed so as not to wake her and tiptoed back into the bathroom to finish up. I took a shower, shaved, brushed my hair. With a towel wrapped around me, I padded back into the bedroom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What time is it now?â&#x20AC;? she asked, still with her eyes closed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;7:45,â&#x20AC;? say I. I go to the closet to get my clothes out. She rolls over and reaches to her night table for her cellphone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a quarter to 10,â&#x20AC;? says she. We think about the ramifications of this. Times are changed on cellphones automatically by a wireless connection to the Great Mother Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Clock. I had it backwards. The day is going fast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The animals are going to be mad we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fed them yet,â&#x20AC;? she says.

Perhaps the oddest thing was this letter that all of the East Hampton Town employees found in their pay envelopes last week. It was about workplace practices and it was written by Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson. He wrote about what he called Management Tools. They would be going into effect to defeat insubordination. “Insubordination will not be tolerated,” he wrote. “Insubordination (is the) failure or refusal to recognize or submit to the authority of a superior. Insubordination includes the deliberate and inexcusable refusal to perform a reasonable order, which relates to an employee’s job function; (thus) undermining the authority of management and the morale of co-workers. Employees’ attempts to embarrass, ridicule or degrade a supervisor, or grumbling, back talk or overall disrespectful attitude towards a superior…is unacceptable. As such, failure to adhere to this standard can lead to discipline up to and including discharge.” Another letter went out to the members of the Montauk Citizens Advisory Board, which in recent times has been loudly vocal in their criticism of not only town officials, but other government officials, such as state, county and federal officials. Wilkinson defined who they could talk to and not talk to. This was so odd because although the Town created this advisory board so they would have a specific group of Montaukers to listen to about issues, they did not offer to pay them. These people on the board are volunteers, not even on the town payroll.

Here was Supervisor Wilkinson’s message to Montauk. Members of the Montauk Citizens Advisory Board are free, as private citizens, to express their opinions to others and even to other governmental bodies such as the Suffolk County Legislature, but they cannot write letters on the letterhead of the Montauk Citizens Advisory Board or even attach the name of that body to their personal signature implying they are on that board. What? Montaukers in particular are as opinionated as they come. If there are two sides to a story and five people in the bar, they will come up with eight opinions before the night is over. As has been said many times, nobody just happens to breeze onto the peninsula of Montauk by accident and wind up settling there. They move there by plan. They are a willful people. And they were stunned to hear that they should keep the cork in their mouths. They held a meeting. One person said well the County would just have to get 20 letters rather than one. Ultimately, they decided to ignore the Supervisor’s “advice.” The iron discipline that Supervisor Wilkinson is now requiring of everyone in town government is understandable if you know about the career that Wilkinson had before he became Town Supervisor. Wilkinson was Senior Vice President of Personnel at Walt Disney for over 20 years. He operates under a law that says there is only one spokesperson on a team. On the team where he is Personnel Director, it is he. On the team of the comic book characters, it is Mickey. Behind closed

doors, Pluto can talk about which trees he wants to mark and which not and Mickey Mouse and the other characters can talk about it to one another—in a respectful manner, of course—but in the end, the buck stops with Mickey. And it is the gracious Mr. Mouse who appears by the microphones to say what is what about the trees, not Goofy or Pluto or even Donald. At Disney, the belief is that when everybody is aboard with that program, Disney moves smartly along into the future in lockstep harmony. Nobody on the outside is privy to the squabbling. And the stock goes up. (And I can attest to that. When my kids were little, I bought each and every one of them one share of Disney. Tromping around the Magic Kingdom, I told them they were owners. At least of one brick here and one brick there is how I explained it to them. Indeed, that stock which was $4 a share when I bought it is, after splits, worth $48 today. We’re rich!) I think Wilkinson’s letters tell more about him than about us. He moved here on retirement from Disney for a little peace and quiet. But then when the prior supervisor almost spent the town into bankruptcy, he rose up out of his slumber like Cincinnatus in Roman Times or Paul Revere in Colonial Times to offer himself up to become Town Supervisor and save the town which, by the way, he is very effectively doing. The town’s squabbling is a perk. Walt Disney it ain’t. (continued on page 27)

45 Minutes That’s How Long It Takes to Drive a Neon From NY to MTK By Dan Rattiner There was this big-front page story in all the papers here on Long Island on Friday about some guys who cops caught speeding just after midnight on the Long Island Expressway. One was Jeff Browne, a 21-year-old, driving a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. The other was Joe Skalka, a 20-year-old, driving a 2005 Dodge Neon. Two passengers were in one car and three in the other. They wanted to see which car was faster. In the end, both drivers lost control and crashed near Exit 58, the Mitsubishi into a fence in front of a Hooters and the Dodge into a gas pump at a gas station next door, causing a fiery explosion. Both cars were totaled. But except for one guy who had a mild concussion, nobody was injured.

On the face of it, a bunch of young guys out racing didn’t seem to be much of a story. Happens on the L.I.E. all the time. The accident wouldn’t have made it front page either. Nor does the fact that it confirms that kids 20 years old will indeed live forever, which is what they believe. It also didn’t seem to make the story any more important the next morning with what happened at the arraignment. The judge ordered $75,000 cash bail to be put up for one of the drivers, Joseph Skalka, who was facing the judge in handcuffs. Skalka turned around when the judge said that and looked at the members of his family who were there. They got up and walked out. What did make this a front-page story was

the fact that the two cars were clocked at 145 miles an hour. I don’t think anybody has ever driven a car that fast on the L.I.E. Even the cops were amazed at this. My first thought was that the police must have been in error. You see lots of these little sedans around, a Dodge Neon, a Toyota Corolla, a Mitsubishi Lancer. They’re no big deal. Indeed, in some of the comments made on this story in Newsday, one wag wrote, “I think the cop with the radar gun should be tested since a Dodge Neon has a top speed of about 60.” I also thought how in hell did they know the boys were going 145 miles an hour anyway? They have radar guns. Do they go up that (continued on next page)

MINI-BUS RIDES TO THE BEACH TO BE OFFERED By David Lion Rattiner You know the feeling in the summertime. You have your car, you have your beach towel and you have your boogie board, but what you don’t have is a beach sticker. In a panic, you travel to the beaches that charge by the day for parking, only to find out that those beaches are full, and then, like the good guy that you are, you drop your family off at the beach and drive your car back to your house so that your family can enjoy the beach. Well, this entire scenario may be a thing of the past thanks to an idea thought up by three

friends, Alexander Esposito, James Westfall and James Mirras. The idea is very simple, free rides to the beach in the summertime using an electric cart. The idea is to set up a shuttle service at various locations in the Hamptons that will zip people from a common area parking lot (like a train station) to the local beaches. In an inspiring act of entrepreneurship, the three will attempt to earn money not from the people that they shuttle to and from the beach, but from advertising that they will sell on the vehicles themselves. The vehicles will not hold

more than six to 10 people or so, as they are electric carts, similar to a golf cart but larger. However, the three are planning on shuttling people all day long, back and forth and back and forth, and the carts are expected to fill up fast, considering the fact that they will be absolutely free of charge. The actual model of the cart that the three plan on using is the Chrysler GEM car. GEM stands for Global Electric Vehicle. The cars are completely street legal ever since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (continued on page 28)

high? Most car speedometers, even those on the big overpowered beasts that could climb up into the high numbers, end around 120. I guess they do. Well, anyway, the police couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep up with this, not even close. They had radioed ahead for the next group of cops to pick up the trail. I wondered about these cars. I looked up their stats. I was amazed. Both have little fourcylinder engines. (Four bangers, as one blogger wrote.) But both are turbocharged to go faster. According to Motor Trend Magazine, the 2005 Dodge Neon goes from zero to 60 in 5.6 seconds and tops out at 153 miles an hour. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo has a top speed of 155 miles an hour and goes from zero to 60 in 5 seconds, making it the second fastest street vehicle in America. Both cost under $30,000 new. How could this be? Last time I looked at cars and stats, the only thing that went that fast were the sorts of European monstersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Audis and BMWs and Mercedesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;built for the German autobahn. Those cars, full size and well balanced, had engines with eight and even 12 cylinders. Where have I been? I guess, maybe like these kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; parents, who said sure when these kids mentioned the cars they wanted to getâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a Neon or Lancer. Sounded slow and safe to them. The only frame of reference I have going that fastâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;keep in mind you could go from Manhattan to the Hamptons in 45 minutes at that speedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was way back when I was 28. I

had just bought a 1959 Triumph TR-3 sports car made in Britain. It was eight years old at the time I bought it and I paid $800 for it as a used car. It was a little bit of a thing, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;four banger,â&#x20AC;? as that blogger wrote. And I wondered how fast it would go. Could you get it up to 100 miles an hour? I thought it would get up over that, but I had a friend who thought it might get up to just 95. We made a $10 bet. (The statute of limitations has run out, so I can tell this story. Except for murder, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven years.) At three in the morning, with nobody around, he followed me out, not to the L.I.E., but to the Sunrise Highway in Hampton Bays. He drove a brand new Chevy Chevette his parents had just bought him, which was also a small car, but with six cylinders. Both of us figured the Chevy would surely go faster than the little Triumph. And both of us figured it would be a comfort to have his new Chevy out there to double check on the speed and also to be there in case something went wrong with the Triumph. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be my wingman. We lined up side by side in the two lanes heading west going about 50. Then, at a signal from me, we hit the gas. As we expected, the Chevy pulled away from the Triumph, and so my friend eased back on his throttle. Side by side we went faster and faster. The Triumph got up to 70, then 80. It was quivering at 80. It got up to 85 and topped out at 88 miles an hour. It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go one mile an hour faster even with my foot on the floor.

And that was it. The Chevy quickly began to pull away. My friend, I think, wanted to celebrate. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just won the bet. And at that speed, I guess it was just too tempting to find out where the Chevy would top out. And so he was gone, at a sort of light-speed slowly getting smaller and smaller off in the distance. I pulled over and came to a halt. I heard the sports car talking to me. It had a cockney accent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey mate, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not do that again, okay?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Okay.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really mean it, mate.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Okay, okay.â&#x20AC;? I started up again now, shifting one after another from first to second to third, its top gear, now getting up to about 45. I pulled off the Sunrise at the Quogue exit, which is where we agreed to end, my friend and I, and there he was, pulled over on the loop ramp, waiting for me. I pulled in behind him, put my car in neutral, pulled up the emergency brake and got out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eighty eight,â&#x20AC;? I said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A hundred and five. That was it.â&#x20AC;? He seemed disappointed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well now we know,â&#x20AC;? I said. Then, behind us, the Triumph spoke again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never again. Ever.â&#x20AC;? It was trembling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never again,â&#x20AC;? I said. I still have the old Triumph.

Dan’s Papers March 18, 2011 danspapers.com Page 23

The Stacy Report: One Year at Dan’s Papers By Stacy Dermony On March 15, 2010 I reported to the Dan’s Papers offices for my first day on the job as Associate Editor. I was shown to a 10-year-old Mac computer on a bare desk. I remember vividly that my first day was a Monday. We edit on Mondays and put the paper to bed on Tuesdays—so it was straight into the fire. Thankfully my then boss, Susan Galardi, was a patient and thorough teacher. I learned enough about our Quark software to be just a little bit more help than hindrance that first day. Dan’s Papers has been published, under various titles, for 51 years now. So I’ve contributed to almost 2% of the issues. It’s been a pretty wild ride so far. Dan recently told me, proudly, that I’ve found my voice. I always suspected that “my voice” was that of a crabby person who was forever in search of lightness and whimsy in the world. I’ve been invited to vent in print about my various pet peeves like Stupid Driving Tricks (“SDTs,” October 8, 2010, “An Epidemic of Wrong Way Drivers,” January 14, 2011, “Cruising for SDTs,” February 18, 2011), yard sale early birds (“Yard Saling Adventures with Junquetooth,” April 9, 2010) and city slickers (“Curd is the Word,” February 11, 2011). I’ve also been invited to write Dan’s Papers restaurant reviews. My two most popular stories to date were about shopping and baking with Lady Gaga (“The Gaga Next Door” July 2, 2010) and about how to make your Thanksgiving leftovers into a yummy Turkey Split (“Turkey Splits!” Nov. 26, 2010). Dan’s Papers is not just unique to this part of the world, it’s truly one-of-a-kind. Where else could one interview rock diva Cyndi Lauper (“Queen from Queens,” July 23, 2010) over the phone while simultaneously arguing with David Rattiner about the temperature of the room? (Eventually he opened a window.) Is there any other office where one e-mail would secure celebrity judges Sarabeth Levine and Sylvia Lehrer for its employee Dessert Off? Is there another office in the universe that shares baked goods brought in every day—baked by fellow workers and brought in, or dropped off by readers and friends? No way is any other newspaper staff of 30 housed in a 19th century farmhouse next door to an Italian gourmet market. The East End is, of course, a unique place. The climate attracts farmers, fishermen and celebrities. From time to time they converge at parties, fronts develop, alcohol is circulated, photos are taken. Life’s a party! Dan has long taken an artful approach to the re-telling of what transpires on these shores. One of my first jobs here was fact checking his stories. I swear, we check all the facts. But Dan is not one to let the facts get in the way of a good story. He writes. We fix what he writes. Since Newsday doesn’t report any good news East of Riverhead and The New York Times averages five mistakes (by my count) in every article about the East End, I feel an obligation to seek out good news and share it with our readers. We’re all on this narrow spit of land together for the long haul. The high points in my career at Dan’s are recent developments. Number one is having

members of the Hampton Bays Volunteer Fire Department come to the office to personally thank me for an article that I wrote about them (“Drama at the House Fire in Hampton Bays,” February 25, 2011). I’m not allowed to say that tears were shed. Tied for second place, in this rich soup of experiences, is the opportunity I had to observe Maureen’s Haven’s homeless shelters (“An Evening with the Homeless in the Hamptons,” February 11, 2011) firsthand—and—my being given my own weekly column, Hamptons Epicure. It’s been a great pleasure to share information

about local epicurean delights. See this week’s column for all the latest farmers market gossip. Next week I think we’ll explore the idea being floated on blogs everywhere that “pies are the new cupcakes.” It certainly begs for exploration. Where does a farm girl from North Otto, New York get off writing about Hamptons dining culture? I take the approach of being just another mouth to fill. I’m open and curious and ask a lot of questions. My restaurant reviews have introduced readers to my standby descriptors of “Yum!” and “double yum,” and the true test of desserts, the “creamy creaminess factor.” (continued on next page)

Plan Will Get Lifeguards to Emergencies Faster By T.J. Clemente Last Sunday I had the opportunity to chat with Southampton Town Councilwoman Nancy Graboski about her pilot program, now underway, to install color-coded markers at Mecox Beach in Bridgehampton and Westhampton Beach for safety reasons. Graboski said that Southampton Trustee Bill Pell had told her the sad account of a failed EMS mission to rescue someone at a The post at Mecox. beach because the person in trouble could not be located on the miles of Southampton beaches. Michael Ross Baldwin, Geographic Information Systems manager for the town, researched the problem and found that a few towns sprinkled around the U.S. are using 10-foot-long fiberglass posts (five inches wide and about one inch thick), which are colored and numbered, as beach markers with GPS coded information on them to promote quick responses to beach emergencies. The Mecox Beach post will be sunk five feet into the sand and posts will be one-tenth of a mile apart. The cost to the town so far is less than $10,000,

and the plan is to have each numbered post registered with a GPS location so that all emergency vehicles can be sent to the closest access point to the situation. The overall plan is to place between 275 and 300 posts in Southampton from Wainscott to Westhampton. Graboski explained the posts will be seven different colors, each color representing a hamlet so that if the people involved in an emergency don’t know the hamlet they are in, the color will identify it and the number will pinpoint the location within one-tenth of a mile. The system will also assist in boating emergencies offshore, when the boater doesn’t know his or her location. Involved in the planning of this pilot program were Chief Fire Marshall Cheryl Kraft and Southampton Town Police Sgt. Randy York, who helped figure out the best place to locate the

Stacy

posts on the beach and do the physical registering of the GPS locations of each sign with Southampton 911 responders. The posts have been placed horizontally east to west near the dunes in a way to minimize sight-line obstruction. Graboski was concerned about those who want to keep their beach view clear of unnecessary obstacles, but said there has been a growing concern for the safety of beachgoers as the population in the country gets older. This system will save lives. There will be other benefits too, like being able to tell friends where you are exactly on the beach, or even locating a lost child. Just think, you might be able to call a buddy to bring some ice and cold drinks to just east of “Yellow Post #7” at Mecox, or be able to tell EMS a person is in need of assistance at “Yellow Post #7” and to hurry. That call with the pinpoint location may save that life.

Restaurateurs have told me that their numbers soar after a review by this farm girl (and her steak-eating dining partner). Of note to diners—when you ask your server a lot of questions, it informs your choice of menu items. And it doesn’t hurt to know the work of all the local food producers. I’m often asked questions about reviewing restaurants. In response to the FAQs: Yes, it’s all true. Yes, I have a very short list of favorite

restaurants. No, I don’t order more than I can eat. Yes, Heck Yes, I’m pleasantly plump. (Note to restauranteurs: reviewers appreciate CLEAN water glasses.) So today, March 18, 2011, I’m three days in to starting year two at Dan’s Papers and The Montauk Pioneer. The Middle East is heating up, the Hamptons social scene is heating up, the farmers markets are heating up…it’s going to be another colorful year here in Danshamptons.

blocked the passageway. No trains could go from one station to another. Charles Construction said it would take three days to take all the bracing down, and it would cost double what they had bid to put them up because it was an emergency job and they would have to account for being pulled off their next job. Instead, Charles Construction was fired from the job, and our most senior motorman, Fred Harrisburg, took on the task of simply driving a subway train through all the bracing at high speed to take everything down, which he did. After that, his helpers, the other motormen, came through and removed the debris during the rest of the day. We regret the inconvenience.

Week of March 18-24, 2011 Riders this week: 9,312 Rider miles this week: 81,412 DOWN IN THE TUBE Sarah Jessica Parker was seen on the Springs branch of the subway, apparently on her way up to visit with her good friend Kim Cattrall. FIRST DAY OF SPRING Employees of Hampton Subway met up for a big luncheon in the Hampton Subway Headquarters in Hampton Bays for the annual company “First Day of Spring” luncheon to give out the various prizes for this and that won in our “ìgood morale”î employee competitions. As usual, the subway system was shut down for two hours from noon to 2 p.m., but our goodnatured straphangers are used to this annual affair and are happy to oblige for that one day, two-hour period once a year. The competition for the best Jello mold made in the cafeteria was won by Agnes Anotherhead, a local woman of Indian extraction who works as a cashier in our cafeteria. The competition for the most courteous employee was won by Jeffrey Haligan, one of our illustrious maintenance men, who got the prize in absentia since he is currently in the hospital recovering from a broken jaw and black eye he got when he fell against a door knob. The competition for the most correct flags gotten up by a flagman in the tunnels to warn approaching subway car motorman that there is or isn’t trouble ahead was won by Harrison Ford Bush, a newcomer to the staff from Arizona who correctly flashed 432 correct flags and only 7 wrong during the competition period, which began last Thursday and ended this Thursday. The competition for the friendliest tokenbooth seller was won by Harriet Grench, who has been selling tokens in her Amagansett booth—along with little wooden toys made by her husband on the side—since 2008. She was elected by popular vote by the subway goers. Most married employee during the last year was won by Fifi “Bubbles” Virginia, who very publicly got married and divorced three times during the past year. Look out, men. The next one could be you. The best Subway Commissioner Competition was won, once again, by the Hampton Subway Commissioner Bill Aspinall, who has been the subway commissioner since it opened in 2007. This is the fourth year in a row he has won, and unlike last year, when one vote went to a subway commissioner elsewhere, this year it was unanimous. SUBWAY SYSTEM CLOSED FOR ONLY A DAY The expected three-day closing of the subway system announced last week turned out to be only one day, Tuesday. As you know, after the devastating earthquakes in New Zealand, and then Japan last week, bids went out at the Hampton Subway to hire a construction firm to reinforce the subway

tunnels in the system. The winning bidder, Charles Construction, proposed to do it all in one night, a Sunday night, and won the bid. What Charles Construction did, however, was put wooden cross-bracing up in the tunnels halfway between each of our stations. The company worked all Sunday night doing that. When the subway system re-opened, on Monday morning, it was found that although the subway tunnels were braced all right, the cross-bracing

Who’s Here By Sharon McKee Recently I surveyed 10 women in my office and asked if they had ever heard the name Essie Weingarten. Nine out of 10 had not. Then I gave them the clue “essie nail polish” (essie with a small “e”), and seven of them recognized the brand. Essie Weingarten of Manhattan and Wainscott is the founder and President of Essie Cosmetics, maker of the eponymous essie nail enamel line since 1981. If you’ve had a manicure any time in the last three decades, the name essie has been right there at your fingertips all along. Last spring beauty giant L’Oréal USA purchased the company for undisclosed millions. In the year before the acquisition it was reported that Essie Cosmetics made $28 million in net sales. While the exact terms of the deal remain private, the entrepreneurial Weingarten is most forthcoming. When asked “Why now?” after all these years as a privately-held company, she responded, “To sell to the largest beauty company in the world was a nobrainer, considering the opportunities and potential.” Weingarten was born and raised in Queens, not far from Astoria where her business still operates today. One of five children, she had formidable role models growing up. “My dad, Benjamin Weingarten, was a visionary...the ultimate entrepreneur at a very young age,” she said. “He started the Party Time division of a rental company and was the first to provide hotels, caterers and corporations with items that looked like private, fashionable home furnishings.” Weingarten’s mother, Blanche, was a stay-at-home mom until her husband died while Weingarten was a teenager. “She had no choice but to reengineer our family to take over the business...,” says Weingarten. “She’s my hero, still working six days a week and loving it.” After graduating from Manhattan’s Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in Fashion, Beauty & Merchandising, Weingarten went to work as a buyer at specialty store Henri Bendel on 57th Street. There she met legendary retailer Geraldine Stutz who predicted in the mid-‘70s that Weingarten would have her own successful business one day. She didn’t have long to wait. Inspired by the Saturday mother-daughter manicures she enjoyed as a child, Weingarten turned her discerning eye toward the beauty business. At that time, with only a couple hundred salons in the country, department stores had a lock on the good nail polish colors. “Fashion was my passion,” says Weingarten. “However, I found an amazing opportunity in realizing that the salon brands were less than mediocre when it came to nail enamel.” In 1981, Weingarten developed a small collec-

la and customers love the brand’s eclectic colors. Through the ‘80s and ‘90s, with the proliferation of nail salons around the country, the brand was booming. As the women’s workforce grew, so did the phenomenon of the nail salon on every corner – not just in metro markets, but also in strip malls and shopping centers everywhere. Inevitably mass retailers and savvy fashion marketers caught up with Weingarten’s growing brand. Distribution deals were inked with Target and J. Crew. At the time of the sale to L’Oréal USA, essie nail products were in more than 250,000 salons and spas in 101 countries, backed by glossy consumer ad campaigns and glowing reviews from the fashion/beauty press. Essie introduces four collections of four new colors each year for consumers and six collections for salons: summer, fall, winter, spring, bridal and resort. Weingarten is the sole copywriter, creating the cheeky color names that have distinguished the iconic brand: Bahama Mama, Wicked, Eternal Optimist, Café Forgot, just to name a few. And my personal favorite, Jamaica Me Crazy. Many of Weingarten’s colors are cult favorites that have stood the test of time. Best-selling Ballet Slippers—‘a classic pink with a sheer finish’—is as on-trend today (think Black Swan) as it was when it debuted in the ‘80s. In 1989 the Royal Hairdresser ordered Ballet Slippers for the Queen of England. Who knows, she may even wear it to The Wedding! Weingarten met her husband and business partner Max Sortino 26 years ago at a beauty trade show in San Francisco. When asked how they balance home and work life she says, “It is easy balancing if the chemistry is there. Max and I have worked together for the last 25 years. My husband is a business genius; this allowed me to maximize my creative skills with the brand. We had a little bit of luck and the rest is history.” I asked Essie a few more questions: You’re a regular at the couture shows in New York, Paris and Milan, but do you agree that fashion comes from the streets as well as the runways? “Absolutely. I walk all over the world and look and observe. Nothing inspires me more.” What collection are you working on right now…what will we be wearing this summer? “Summer 2011 is all about bright, bold colors. Very ‘braziliant.’” How do you unwind from the stresses of your business? “We are in Wainscott as often as we can, all year-round. I have an extensive orchid collection. I love to go antiquing and to visit the wonderful art shops in the Hamptons...I love all the summer fundraisers…My victory garden at the beach is my sanctuary, with herbs, tomatoes, etc. Cooking is certainly my hobby.

I love to go antiquing and to visit the wonderful art shops in the Hamptons.” tion of 12 durable nail enamels in fashion-forward colors with catchy names like Baby’s Breath and Bordeaux. Her businesswoman mother was of course supportive. “She said, ‘Try it! If it doesn’t work, it’s not a ‘shandah’ – not the end of the world,” recalls Weingarten. In a master-stroke of test marketing, Weingarten loaded a suitcase with samples and headed for Las Vegas. She figured the built-in clientele of showgirls, croupiers, bartenders and waitresses would be an ideal group to try out her extra-strength polishes. Weingarten gave samples to every hotel and salon in town, and before long she had a hit on her hands. By the time she got home to Queens the orders were streaming in. “The success was gradual, but every single day I was adding new customers as the old ones were repeating business orders.” The core of the essie nail business has always been salons. Salon owners trust the essie formu-

Here a Pothole, There a Pothole, Everywhere... By T.J. Clemente It’s another pothole epidemic. The amazing record-breaking snows of January plus the blinding deep freeze have contributed to what some Suffolk County officials are unofficially calling the worst pothole spring ever. All pothole filling crews in the County have been scrambling to fill as many as 600 holes a day. County statistics reveal that the Town of Islip is in the lead, as usual, with 20,000 potholes already filled. Throughout the Hamptons, NY State Route 27 is the lifeline artery that stretches east to west. It seems that no matter what part of that thoroughfare is on your commute, the worst craters are in your path. Alex Gregor in Southampton and Scott King in East Hampton, the Town Highway Superintendents, are powerless at

Mickey

repairing anything on Route 27. As our representative in Albany, Fred Thiele, said, “On Route 27... the state fills the potholes...the towns have no jurisdiction. I have asked the towns to give me the worst locations, which I pass on to the State DOT [Department of Transportation] to do first. I have already contacted DOT to do this work,” he said. Believe it or not the County has jurisdiction on County roads and the Towns on Town Roads, even East Hampton Village has it’s own department of public works, which means there is a minimum of four separate pothole filling crews

(continued from page 20)

One final thing. On several occasions over the years, the Village of Sag Harbor, when it hasn’t got a whole lot to do, sometimes shoulders the burden of evaluating the behavior of Presidents and Prime Ministers around the world. They talk about something going on in the world, then they take a vote. As a result, there are times when a world leader gets a registered letter in the mail from the Village of Sag Harbor about how he or she is doing. Sometimes it is complimentary, sometimes not. (I recall them sending a letter

complimenting Gorbachev after meeting Reagan in Iceland.) Sag Harbor is just one example of how the fishermen and farmers and merchants and professional people over the years have grandly resisted the Walt Disney Mickey Mouse Keep Your Mouth Shut Program of Discipline and Courtesy so vigorously espoused by the Town Supervisor. On the other hand, as a lowly East Hampton Town Taxpayer, maybe I shouldn’t publish this article until I get the approval of the higher ups.

out there each day. The state’s resurfacing plan for Route 27 has not only been put off until 2013 (bids will be accepted in 2012), but the scope of the plan, which originally was supposed to cover the entire highway between Southampton and East Hampton, will now only be targeted on the stretch between Stephen Hands Path and Buell Lane in East Hampton Village. According to the State DOT, “Potholes form because asphalt road surfaces eventually crack under the heat of the day and the constant stresses of traffic. These cracks allow snow and rainwater to seep into the underlying dirt and gravel. During cold winter nights, this water freezes and expands. Some of the dirt and gravel is pushed out as a result, leaving a hole when the water eventually melts. Drivers continue to drive over these unseen holes, putting even more stress on the thin asphalt layer covering them.” As a result, driving becomes hazardous, with the driver being one pothole away from a thousand dollar repair bill, because almost no insurance or lease warranty covers damage due to hitting a pothole. In the meantime, spot-filling of the potholes will take place, and it won’t be long before the roads have those uneven asphalt patches on them for us to drive over.

Free Ride

45 Minutes

(continued from page 21)

(NHTSA) designated a new class of motor vehicle, the low-speed vehicle, also known as the Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV). The low-speed vehicle class allows GEM cars to be driven on public roads if they meet certain safety criteria such as having safety belts, headlamps, windshield wipers and safety glass. According to Chrysler, GEM cars always come equipped with these safety features making them a benchmark in the industry. They represent a new kind of personal transportation that expands the capacity to have fun. They represent a versatile and efficient way to get the job done, as well as a clean way to do everyday work. They are also completely silent machines. The concept of Free Ride will also be good for people who actually drive to the beach, but want to run back into town for lunch and do not want to lose their beach parking spot. It will also be good for kids who are too young to

drive, but live nearby drop-off points that allow them to easily walk home. There is no word yet on whether or not the GEM cars will have surfboard racks installed, but we’re guessing there is a good chance they will. All of this, however, is still just an idea, but it’s starting to get serious and the business plan needs to get approved before it can move forward. Approval is going to have to come from the Town of East Hampton because the entrepreneurs are going to be using Townowned property to run their business. It is here that the three business partners will face one of their biggest obstacles in launching Free Ride, because in short order, the Town could say no. The other potential obstacle for the three young men is that the business might not appeal to those who would rather drive to the beach and have control of when they come and go. Using a little shuttle might not be a fashionable choice for some, even though it provides a common-sense service. Although the permits have to get approved by the Town Board, it sounds like a lot of people will be happy to have Free Ride as an added service to the Town of East Hampton. Not finding parking at the beach can be incredibly frustrating. The real question is, is the Town willing to sacrifice potential revenue because people start using this service over the paid parking lots at Atlantic Beach or Main Beach? We’ll have to wait and see.

while. I ride it around the block once in a while. I recently learned that way back when they were about to build the TR-3s, the owner of the Triumph Motor Car company, observing that his closest competitor, a sports car company called MG, was selling their new modern design convertible like hot cakes, decided he had no time to design a whole new engine for his entry. But he was at that time manufacturing farm tractors—Triumph Tractors— with strong little engines, so he ordered tens of thousands of extra ones for the new TR-3. And that did the job. Well no damn wonder it topped out at only 88.

in Wainscott and Manhattan are always “hot” and busy.” What plans do you have this season? What are your favorite things to do, places to go? “Starting mid-May we will move to Wainscott for the summer. I have several personal appearances scheduled between May and September and the Wainscott and Islip airports are nearby in case L’Oréal needs me real fast! This year we want to spend more time on the beach and ride our red Vespa. Antique fairs, art galleries and the farmers market are a regular routine for me. I love picking local strawberries and green beans.” Have the Hamptons have ever inspired a color collection? “For sure! The Hampton Collection was one of our most successful ever, with South of the Hi’Way, Dune Road, East Hampton Cottage and Montauk the End. At first I was a bit concerned that The Hampton Collection was a New York kind of thing, and who would understand the collection beside New Yorkers? Oh boy, I was wrong!” Something tells me Essie doesn’t get it wrong very often. So the next time you see her at the farmers market, just smile and wave your freshly manicured hand – like the Queen.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Subway Mechanic Alex “Spike” McNutley, who turned 33 today without missing a beat in our subway yards. He waved away the cake. He was under a subway car engine and said forget it. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE The people who put together this plan to brace the subway tunnels have, one at a time, come into my corner office to be told they were fired and to gather their things and get out. There were five all together. They included a Vice President, who thought up this plan, a project manager, who designed the job requirements, an auctioneer, who conducted the bidding in our basement conference room, an architect, who designed this cross-bracing business and a purchasing agent, who ordered all the four by fours. This was the biggest waste of $143,150 I have ever heard of.

TWENTY SOMETHING by David Lion Rattiner

I live in a small condominium complex in Southampton. I’m very happy there, Southampton is one of the most beautiful places on earth in my opinion. But the other day, I was pretty convinced that I saw a ghost. Let me explain. I do not believe in anything supernatural and think that it is all good fun, but about three weeks ago I had a dream, or I really should say nightmare, that there was a ghost in my house. When I woke up, I was scared, calmed down and went back to bed and didn’t think anything of it. For the next two weeks, I think I told everybody at the Dan’s Papers office about my dream seeing a ghost and it took the office by storm. Everybody had their opinion on it; some would say that they believe in ghosts, others say it was just a dream. Of course, it was just a dream. Last week, however, I walked into my condo at about 1 a.m., after a late dinner and a night out at the various places in Southampton. I’m right in the village, so I can walk pretty much everywhere, and when I got home, I was hungry so I went into the kitchen to make myself something to eat. All was quiet in my house, when suddenly I heard foot-stomping coming up the stairs, very slow foot-stomping. My neighbor, I thought. Then, very slowly, the door to my house opened and in walked an old woman with grey hair, who was easily over 80 years old and wearing pajamas. The ghost, I thought for half a second. I was frozen solid, my body flowing with adrenaline as I stared in confusion at this old lady who suddenly started to speak to me in French. I don’t speak French, but needless to say, I listened for 10 minutes. And for 10 minutes, I thought, what should I do? Who is this old lady? What is she doing in my house? She’s not a ghost…right? Why would she start speaking French to me? “English. I only speak English,” I finally said. “YOU SPEAK ENGLISH?” she said. “Yes, of course.” And then, in a French accent, this woman,

www.danspapers.com

who I thought could possibly be the first real live ghost I’ve ever seen (and who by the way kind of looked like the old lady in the movie Titanic) said, “I live in the unit below you and when you walk upstairs this late it wakes me up. You have to walk up more quietly, there is no reason to stomp, your boots are too heavy, why do you have to wear boots?” Oh my God. I thought. A wave of relief went over me. I was happy to find out that this woman wasn’t a ghost. But at the same time, I was a little annoyed that she had come up without knocking and at such a late hour. She could have easily asked me the following day to be quieter at night when walking up the stairs. “Oh no problem,” I said. “I

didn’t even think that anybody lived below me, it just never crossed my mind. I apologized and promised to be more quiet when I head up the stairs.” “Well please do.” “I will, I promise, no problem. And if you ever need anything, let me know.” I then proceeded to walk her out of my house and helped her get down the stairs and walked her back to her house, which is just the next door over, on the first floor of course. I got back to my house, took a breath and decided I wasn’t really hungry anymore and that it was time to go to sleep. So I went to sleep…with the lights on…and the radio on…and the computer on....

BY THE BOOK

by Joan Baum

Although the press release states that Gail Levin’s Lee Krasner “is the first biography ever written about this fascinating and iconic female artist,” Levin’s 532-page assessment— reassessment would be the more appropriate word—is hardly the first take on Krasner’s feisty and fierce personal life and “pioneer” achievement as an Abstract Expressionist, as Levin’s own meticulous bibliography, endnotes and text references would attest. Levin’s book, however, may become the definitive biography on the woman born Lena Krassner (two s’s), ”very much the product of her Jewish immigrant culture,” who became Lenore, then Lee, then Mrs. Jackson Pollock. It meets the challenge of being significant and resonant, especially on the East End, home to the PollockKrasner House and Study Center in Springs, where the author lived for some time before moving to Bridgehampton. ”Levin met Krasner in 1971 and became her advocate and friend”— a 1977 photo of Krasner with the author, then curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art, opens chapter 17. Lee Krasner: A Biography corrects prejudicial “errors and omissions” as well as offers new material, some of it based on personal interviews. In accessible prose Levin tells about Krasner’s bohemian early life, a time of “poverty and protest,” her work for the WPA, her studies with Hans Hofmann and her days— and nights—hanging out with the New York art crowd of artists and critics. Mini bios abound, including a fascinating look at Krasner’s first and longtime love, the dashing Russian painter, Igor Pantuhoff. Essentially, Lee Krasner: A Biography celebrates Krasner’s accomplishments as an artist, distinct from her famous husband. The book sympathetically, though fairly, gives voice to the indomitable but not invulnerable force of nature that was Lee Krasner until she died in 1984 at the age of 75. She was a formidable presence, a shrewd keeper of her husband’s flame and, finally, a recognized premier artist courted by major artistic institutions, even as partisan critics after Pollock’s death continued to press the competitive claim to fame of Willem de Kooning. Previous biographical treatments of Krasner tended to fold her life into monographs and exhibition catalogues that typically compared her with her husband or stopped too soon to address her own remarkable career. “After Jackson died [in 1956] the load was far heavier on me than when he was alive . . . He was painter number one and the whole art world turned on me. It was like I wasn’t there.” Energetic, stubborn, seductive, despite her less than good looks, Krasner comes memorably alive, especially when Levin quotes oral comments (Krasner never “told her own story,

and she left behind few personal letters or other written accounts.”) She could be blunt, devastatingly direct and witty, on target about friend or foe (sometimes the same person was both) and on herself. “I was a woman, Jewish, a widow, a damn good painter, thank you, and a little too independent,” she said. Krasner never let anything stop her, even Pollock’s alcoholism, and affairs, though they came close. She said, however, that she would do it all over again: “Anything else is for the birds.” She rallied: “I painted before Pollock, during Pollock, after Pollock.” And she waited out the times until sexist attitudes—on the part of both artists (the surrealists prominent among them) and critics—began to yield to the feminist movement, about which Krasner was ambivalent but to which she was always grateful. A big book, dense with names and analyses of pictures and personalities, Lee Krasner: A Biography is best taken in stages, no problem since Levin includes some welcome repetition from chapter to chapter. A qualm, though, has to do with Levin’s use of quotation marks for both primary and secondary sources, necessitating constant endnote checks—well, she might say, at least you get to read everything.

Lee Krasner: A Biography by Gail Levin, William Morrow, $30. The author will be speaking and signing books in July at Guild Hall and the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center. March Minis What May Have Been: Letters of Jackson Pollock & Dori G (Cervena Barva Press), a slim paperback collaboration that grew out of emails between two writers who met on the social media site Fictionaut, describes an imaginary love affair carried on mostly by letters (sometimes only a line to a page) between the famous artist and a highly neurotic, self-centered young girl, 17. “Your legs are like white asparagus stalks,” Pollock writes when he first sees her in a supermarket amid fruit. Though she says he’s “old, old, old,” he can’t be more than in his mid-30s if the time is the late 1940s. Gary Percesepe writes Dori’s letters, Susan Tepper, Jackson’s. Lee Krasner comes off a harridan, the landscape a cliché. What the gimmick and content are meant to illuminate of Pollock, art or Springs escapes me. (continued on next page)

Here’s food for thought: Before Julia Child was in American kitchens introducing Parisian cuisine, she was in Paris (and elsewhere) with her husband, serving America by helping to develop a secret intelligence network across Southeast Asia. Relying on recently released declassified materials, including diaries and letters, best-selling author, journalist and parttime resident of Sag Harbor Jennet Conant recounts this amazing story in compelling prose. A Covert Affair: The Adventures of Julia Child and Paul Child in the OSS (Simon and Schuster) is a narrative about an unlikely couple abroad, their glamorous and intriguing coming of age, personally and politically as they pursued idealistic goals for their country, and their shocking and sobering surprise at finding themselves part of a post-war Red scare security inquest. Driven by the mantra “Got taken? Get ruthless,” investigative journalist and big-time author on business and finance Phil Trupp recounts how he joined up with other victims of a huge Wall Street auction-rate securities (ARS) scandal to bring down the scam artists who just about took him to the cleaners. Ruthless: How Enraged Investors Reclaimed Their Investments and Beat Wall Street (Wiley) tells how he and thousands of others were duped by ruthless predators—he names names—but he also just as ruthlessly shows how he and his fellow victims, “mad as hell,” mounted an angry and passionate defense based on insider savvy and connections.

HAMPTONS EPICURE Stacy Dermont

Saturday found me eating guacamole with a spoon. As a regular attendee of the Sag Harbor Indoor Farmers Market, I’ve grown fond of Greeny’s soups and salads. This hot food stand is run by a person known to me as “Jen from Shelter Island.” Her guacamole is very fresh and very garlicky. She has quite a way with garlic. I also bought a container of her green dip. I don’t know what’s in there besides garlic, but it made the best nachos ever! This popular little indoor market is open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Housed in the new brick building at 34 Bay Street through March 19, the following Saturday it will be moving “uptown.” It’s going to set up on Saturday mornings in the lobby of the Bay Street Theatre beginning March 26. They’ll be there every Saturday through May 14 (except April 30 due to a booked event). This joining of two great cultural institutions is a total win-win. Bay Street Executive Director Tracy Mitchell told me, “This market is a great part of our community. We’re thrilled to host them!” The freshest produce from Foster Farms, Mecox Bay Dairy cheeses, preserves, honey, Greeny’s soups and salads and fresh pastas - plus the theatre box office will be open. You can stock up on food and culture all in one outing. On May 21 the Sag Harbor Farmers Market reopens outside, in front of the Breakwater Yacht Club on Bay Street. Speaking of Sag Harbor, the folks at Sunset Beach Farm just sent “Epicure Central” notice that they are back from teaching gardening classes in Australia. They will be returning to the Westhampton Beach Farmers Market, which re-opens on Saturday, May 28. They are eager and excited to begin their second season and, most exciting of all, they will have two more acres to plant this year. With the added acreage they can provide 40 Community Supported Agriculture shares for the 2011 season. The space will also allow them to offer a wider variety of crops. All the details are available on their website, sunsetbeachfarm.net. Farmers markets are not just fun for all ages, they are also serious business and, for many, a vital source of nutrition. Southampton Town Councilwoman Bridget Fleming is introducing a new program this summer. Southampton Town is partnering with the non-profit Sustainable Long Island to open a youth-run farmers market in the parking lot of the David W. Crohan Community Center off Flanders Road in Flanders. Local high school kids will set up stands and run them. The Montauk Farmers Market is set to reopen on Thursdays beginning June 23. This year will see the return of the Horman’s pickle guy, Open Minded Organics mushrooms and Balsam Farms produce. Laraine Creegan of the Montauk Chamber of Commerce says she likes to buy everything that this market offers, but especially the vegetables and pickles. And there’s a new Wednesday market coming to Amagansett this season, at the American Legion. Shelter Island will have its very own farmer market at their historical society grounds in June! And don’t miss the first of a series of markets at Lenz Winery in Peconic. They will celebrate Earth Day on Saturday, April 23 with their Farmers and Artisans Market from 2 to 5 p.m.

The Friday farmers market at the Hayground School in Bridgehampton will be back for its third season on May 27, 3-6:30 p.m. The East Hampton Farmers Market is gearing up for its return Friday mornings and last year’s new market at Ashawagh Hall in Springs promises to reopen on May 28. Organizer Paul Hamilton of Springs Farm says he’s going to have more herbs and flowers than ever this year and the market will have new preserves, cheese and wine vendors. Speaking of food and Ashawagh Hall, Tim Lee continues hosting his popular flea market in this historic hall. He’ll be there with about 10 other vendors March 19 and 20 and, in addition to antiques, vintage jewelry and industrial finds, he’s promised to offer pork buns from China Town! Also custard tarts and coffee. Sweet! This market is open 10 to 5 both days and admission is free. Vendor space is still available, see our Dan’s Day By Day calendar for details.

NORTH FORK THE SHELTERED ISLANDER by Sally Flynn

Child Rearing Tips Recently, I think it was in Good Housekeeping magazine, there was an article about how annoying mothers find it when strangers volunteer parenting advice. I know what that’s like. I used to get all kinds of annoying parental advice. “You shouldn’t leave your child in the car while you go in the IGA, lady!” If they had paid attention, they would have seen that I had the window cracked and they each had a little bottle of water. “You shouldn’t put your kids in the trunk just to save an extra two bucks on the ferry!” Yes, but little did they know I was planning to spend those two extra dollars on the children themselves. Why? Because no sacrifice is too much to ask for my children. Or the ferryman who used to say, “Pop the

trunk, Ms. Flynn, we know you have the kids in there.” “Yes, but they each have a little bottle of water...” There was a time I made a quick stop for some essentials. “Ma’am, I don’t think it’s legal to duct tape your child in his stroller.” “Listen Mister, you don’t know this kid—he’s a real escape artist! If I don’t tape him in, he gets loose and tries to run with the stroller strapped to his back!” “Because he’s too big to be in a stroller! How old is he? Four?” “Four and a half.” “Four and half? Then why is he still in a stroller?” “To slow him down so I can catch him, you fool! It takes me a minute or two to pay for my drink, get my purse and get out of The Dory once I see him through the front window making his big move. I always catch him within a block, so there’s no harm done.” Or when I took the kids fishing off the dock. “Lady, your kid’s eating out of your bait cup!” “Relax, it’s fresh bait, I just picked it up an hour ago.” Imagine thinking I’d let my kid eat old bait, what kind of mother would do that? Or when I’d be treading clams for dinner and hear someone yell, “Why is your child tied to

an anchor on the beach? He’s eating sand!” “I can’t bring him out here with me, he tips the basket!” “Then take him home!” “You take him home. I’ll give you half my basket,” I yell back. But they never take me up on my offer. I don’t know what they worry about. I always used a round anchor, not a pointy one—that would be dangerous. And I could see the kid the whole time, so what was the problem? I never understood what all the fuss was about. There’s lots of ways to raise good kids. Both of my kids are young adults now. And you know what? Neither of them has any problem climbing into the trunk when we get on the ferry.

&guide Spring’s Dance in the Garden By Jeanelle Meyers As I began this year’s work on Tuesday, I was greeted by a large stand of snow drops that I had planted four years ago among the roots of a huge European Beech. This Beech lost a third of its canopy two years ago in a wind storm and since the hole that was created faces east, the sun lights up the base of the tree in the morning. The snow drops had their own spotlight and looked proud to be there in it. They are in a garden under this beech that has daffodils peeking up through the frozen earth that will flood the under- story beginning next month with hundreds of smiling faces accompanied by a swath of blue mucsari. In late April, crowds of white tulips fill this space under the tree as the hostas and ferns that also live there are pushing up their new leaves. These tulips found their permanent home here having been removed from a showcase spot in another garden. Spring displays like this, a welcome verification that the season is indeed changing to warmer temperatures, are also a reward for the gardener who had the foresight and trust to plant bulbs in the fall and then the willingness to wait until spring to see their flowers. There are later blooming bulbs still underground in the beds where I have been pruning roses this week. If I wait much longer to prune, I will step on them. This begins and continues the dance with the garden, the weather and the work. Where do I need

to step and possibly on what, to do this task and that one? Once the camasia in front of the bamboo hedge begins to shoot, it is too late to thin that bamboo. Cut the liriope soon or lose the daffodils in the front beds! I leave a lot of stalks and stubs for the winter as I like to see evidence of the season and not empty space. If I time this pruning badly, I will smash all sorts of things! If I had not pruned the rose garden in the fall, I would be squashing the early daffodils there. The garden dance is ongoing and we are in the spring movement. I know the chickens are glad for the turn of the

weather. The snow had them, for days on end, holed up in the chicken house with only a small outside walking space. The house has a heat light to keep the nip out of the air and their bedding is layered beginning in December so it gets deeper as the weather gets colder. This deep layer also starts composting and that adds heat. They don’t even go out when I go in to change the water and food and I notice that it is toasty in there among their little clucking bodies. The intelligence of chickens is often questioned, but these know what to do in the cold weather! Half of this flock were chicks last spring and began to lay in December. They are working very hard to produce a lot of very good eggs. They also produce a lot of product for the compost pile which delights the gardener! Although this winter was difficult, and had some people feeling trapped inside their houses and the snow and ice were so intractable that one day I could not get the door to the chicken pen open and had to cut a hole in it to get to the chickens, I still like the change of seasons. I like the snow and being snug in the house. I like to see the garden sleeping. I like the quiet landscape. And about the time I get itchy, the light begins to change and I smell spring in the air. Then the time comes to return to the garden and I am surprised again and delighted to see the snow drops. Jeanelle Meyers is a full-time gardener...

Trend: Traditional Meets Contemporary By Tamara Matthews-Stephenson Of course we all know that the design of a home is not created in a vacuum. Our surroundings, the economy and sociology all play an intricate part in the trends that appear in our interior design, from furniture choices to wall colors. When I speak of trends, I do not mean trendy, because most homes today don’t change furnishings every season like fashion. Many of us are not interested in the trendy, low-quality items that roll in and out of popularity. However, trends in design affect the industry in many ways even down to the smallest details, such as whether a wallpaper selection is available to the public based upon its popularity at the moment. I was invited by the IFDA (International Furnishings Design Association) to attend a symposium recently at the Grange Furniture Showroom in Manhattan. I learned about the twice-yearly premiere home design show in Paris called Maison Objet, and the current trends that we should expect to see in the upcoming year that have come out of this show. This will affect color, textures, fabrics and furniture design. I find all these influences exciting and wonder how they will influence us here in the Hamptons. Industry expert and journalist Hermine Mariaux shared her thoughts on the current 2011 design trends to watch, based upon what she saw at last fall’s exhibition at the Maison Objet. The show attracts designers and manufacturers from around the world who exhibit their wares. It has become the Paris version of New York’s Fashion Week for home

furnishings and sets the tone for upcoming trends in design around the world. Mariaux gave a slideshow and discussion to a packed audience. Mariaux outlined two distinct styles that will influence design this year – a return to traditional style with an emphasis on heavy, dark furnishings and in contrast, an ultra-contemporary style that accentuates oversized seating, giving a sense of privacy, as a sort of room within a room. At Maison Objet, there were many embellishments on furnishings and nods to 16th and 17th century period styles – Baroque, Dutch Colonial, and William & Mary. There seems a to be a return to heavy furnishings, with ormolu and dark woods. Mariaux pointed to the current furniture lines she saw at Highpoint – dark-wooded furniture lines by Michael Smith (Baker) and Martha Stewart (Bernhardt). She showed examples of carved mirrors and Flemish paintings (noting the overwhelming popularity of two recent art exhibits – one at the New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and Bronzini’s exhibit in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence) as examples. There will be a renewed interest in Dutch Colonial style. Fabrics will be richer in color, with more detailing, more embellished, with lots of emphasis on crewel, tooled leather and rich woven fabric. Color trends will be the richer jewel tones. The opposite trend Mariaux outlined was in the contemporary style which has been popular for many years, but with a new emphasis on oversized, unexpected and unusual shapes and textures in lighting, metals juxtaposed with raw woods, more

exaggerated scale and much more black as a backdrop on walls and furnishings. There was a lot of black contrasted with white, black with pops of color, rich colors and some whites referred to as “refrigerator white.” A big Japanese influence was lacquer finishes. Recycling and green marketing will probably play a big part in this movement looking ahead. This is nothing new, however. The oversized scale, taller in height and larger seating areas reflect something new that may be percolating: to create a room within a room or a space in which to enjoy a sense of privacy. I like the use of natural raw materials set against the metal finishes. Although this isn’t new either, it seems to be even more defined. The return to craftsmanship in modern furnishings is seen as well in ultra-raw pottery and unusual lighting with wood and metals. Using natural materials, like wood, in modern furniture reflect the desire to bring craftsmanship to the modern approach. Listening to the forecast on upcoming trends made me contemplate these two distinct styles and note that we seem to be blending both more than ever before. The lines are no longer distinct between a traditional and contemporary home and many homes are a lovely mix of modern and traditional styles. It is an exciting time for interior design. We are well equipped and we have a less rigid design outlook. More important, we seem to be shifting our focus back to combining well-made items of good quality into our homes. As Martha Stewart would say, “It’s a good thing.” Tamara Matthews-Stephenson is an interior designer, freelance writer and author of Nest by Tamara blog at nestnestnest.blogspot.com.

& ART COMMENTARY by Marion W. Weiss

Sculpture and Photography: Hooke and Tulla Booth Galleries There’s a new art venue in the Hamptons, at least new to this critic, located above Sag Harbor’s longestablished Grenning Gallery. The Hooke Sculpture Gallery features work by Robert Hooke, David Begbie and Peter Ball, and the art, as well as the artists, are equally provocative. Hooke, for example, has just returned from London after living there for over 30 years. While away from this area, he also exhibited widely in such disparate places as Basel, Sydney and Cape Town. Such diverse experiences are relevant, given that Hooke’s sculptures are so varied. His mostly figurative subjects derive from many sources, like literature and the animal world. The exhibit, in fact, includes a myriad of media, too: bronze, marble, mesh, cooper and driftwood. Hooke’s figures of couples, like “Rendezvous,” are sensual as well as emotional; some other bronze figures possess a folk art demeanor. While his animals, like “Stallion 1,” convey this same combination of sensuality and emotion, they are at once potent and distinguishable. They seem ready to leap into space.

HONORING THE ARTIST

by Marion Wolberg Weiss

Howard Rose This week’s cover by Howard Rose is somewhat different from most other covers, considering that it features several images (miniatures) inspired by Long Island beaches. This composite recalls a cinematic montage, a series of separate views evoking an idea or mood; such a mood is uplifting, the sky, water and sand all creating a place of beauty and peace. That ambience is precious to Rose and it’s one he has savored throughout the many years he has lived in the area. It’s a worldview that has inspired his various students as well. Q: You were Ruth Baderian’s teacher, a cover artist who, unfortunately, has passed away. From my conversation with one of her friends and a fellow student, your class is very popular. In fact, the pupils call themselves the “Rosettes.” What’s your secret? A: I love working with people. But you need someone to tell you how to improve your painting. I know how to push students, but in a nice way. Why would I want to make them miserable? Q: How do you “push” people? Do you have a method that gives them an idea of how to improve

"Rendezvous" by Robert Hooke, Bronze David Begbie’s “Inus 2009” is not made of bronze like Hooke’s sculpture, but his steel mesh nude figure is similarly sensual and powerful. It, too, has a presence that reaches out to the viewer. Ball’s driftwood and copper piece, “The Aviator,”

their work? A: I have 22 points that go into a painting, including design, texture, atmosphere and drawing. I talk about those points when critiquing the students’ art. But design is most important. No one starts a painting without a design. Q: You have taught at a variety of places. A: Yes, at the National Art League and at Bailey Arboretum, a 45-acre park. My studio is in a horse stadium. I also have a class in Roslyn at someone’s condo every Tuesday. Q: What has been your background leading up to your teaching for the last 10 years? A: I went to the School for Visual Arts where I studied graphic arts; I started painting in 1989. I made displays, working with my father in Long Island City, learning about wood, silk screening and business, among other things. After I left, I had my own business for 25 years, designing products for leather companies, developing products like paperweights for colleges and universities. Every day after work, I would go home to paint. Q: How did you first get motivated to paint, rather than focus on graphic arts entirely? A: One day I went into Rizzoli Bookstore in Manhattan and saw a book by Alfred Chadbourn. I must have read it 20 times. I called up Mr. Chadbourn, who lived in Yarmouth, Maine, and he invited me to his workshop there. That started me to paint. Q: What locations do you now find inspiring to

seems more immobile, but the materials are especially noteworthy, the combination of textures imbuing the work with both a fantasy-like and archetypical attitude. Come to think of it, much of the exhibit evokes an archetypical world. The photography show presently at Sag Harbor’s Tulla Booth Gallery has a sculptural quality to it as well. Consider Daniel Jones’ iconic fences on the beach: the black-and-white compositional quality communicates a three-dimensional element that obviously defines sculpture. Yet it’s important that the fence is seen in context and not in isolation like a piece of sculpture. Thus, Jones’ configuration conjures up a metaphor, where the beach’s open spaces contradict the fence’s closed form. Susan Meisel’s lettuce garden also has sculptural elements, primarily due to the presence of texture. It’s still a photograph, however, its symmetrical arrangement giving a sense of order and predictability. Jonathan Morse’s image of lettuce is similar, but the close-up view evokes more three-dimensional aspects. Bob Tabor’s horses, stunning in close-up, are especially good examples of sculpture’s influence on photography. At first, we only see pure form – the spectator is not even aware that these images are horses’ backs. The bird’s-eye view aids this perception as we begin to wonder what the shapes represent. Is it a desert we are seeing? (The images are white.) Is it another kind of terrain? Lo and behold, it’s a common (and not-so-common) horse. From Tabor’s photographs, we also realize this animal’s grace, beauty and overwhelming power. The Hooke Gallery is at 17 Washington Street in Sag Harbor. Call 631- 725-8467 for information. The exhibit at The Tulla Booth Gallery, 66 Main Street in Sag Harbor, will be on view until the end of March. Call 631-725-3100.

paint? A: The South Shore, Jones Beach, Montauk Beach, Martha’s Vineyard. I go there to paint every two years. We’ve been to Tuscany three times, too, but Montauk Beach can’t be more beautiful. Q: You paint outside a lot. What’s it like? A: It’s unbelievably beautiful. I take my umbrella, paints and a pochade box. I bring a sandwich for lunch, and I have it made. Q: Besides painting and teaching, what are your passions? A: I used to teach guitar, and I play the piano. I’d love to write music. That’s the ultimate creative thing. I also wrote for American Art Magazine on how to start a beach painting. Q: So, what’s the bottom line? What is it about beach paintings you are attracted to? A: It’s painting something you have walked by a million times, and didn’t recognize it. Howard Rose’s works are on view on at Howardrose.com. They will also be on view at Southampton’s Chrysalis Gallery, 631-287-1883, starting June 11, and at Manhasset’s Trapani Gallery, starting May 14. Rose will be giving a workshop at Chrysalis Gallery in the near future. Please call 631-287-1883 for details. CORRECTION: February 25 cover artist Annie Wildey is an artist-in-residence at the William Steeple Davis House in Orient. Before that, she did a one-year fellowship at the New York Academy of Art.

& SIMPLE ART OF COOKING by Silvia Lehrer

The idea of serving small, decorative salads as a first course is in itself very appealing. There is almost no other category of food that gives the cook more latitude in his or her imagination than salad composition. When preparing a salad it’s time to play, and there are no rules or boundaries here except when it comes to the freshness of your ingredients. For a green salad, lettuce comes in an incredible array of shapes and colors and is available throughout the year. Fresh greens tossed in a little olive oil and vinegar with a bit of salt to heighten flavor is where you can begin and this would make a perfectly fine salad. While here in Florida I’ve been inspired to prepare a couple of excellent salads that I enjoyed at Miami Beach restaurants – Carpaccio in Bal Harbour, and Michy’s, Michelle Bernstein’s trendy restaurant in Miami’s “Upper East Side” neighborhood. Carpaccio’s silken slices of portobello team well with aromatic, peppery arugula and thin slices of fine quality Parmigiano-Reggiano with its sharp,

yet complex sweet/nutty flavor. And Michy’s watercress, grape and chèvre salad – with its health benefits of the crisp ancient green, juicy red grapes and creamy, crumbly, goat’s milk cheese – are players in a colorful salad dressed with balsamic vinaigrette. If you’re still wearing the green to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, put the green on your salad plate and enjoy! CARPACCIO OF PORTOBELLO MUSHROOM AND ARUGULA SALAD Large rounded caps of portobello mushrooms are sliced thin and marinated for two or three days until they are silky smooth and tender. Slices are served over a bed of arugula, topped with shavings of Parmigiano-Reggiano. Serves 6 For the marinated mushrooms: 2 large or 3 medium portobello mushrooms, about 1 pound 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil Juice of 1 lemon Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper To serve: 4-6 cups arugula, washed and spin dried Extra-virgin olive oil Balsamic vinegar Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper Shavings of parmesan cheese 1. With fingertips pull up the outer edge of the portobello mushrooms to peel off the top layer. Remove and discard the heavy stems and cut a

Dan’s Papers March 18, 2011 danspapers.com Page 50

LETTERS FISHIN’ Dear Dan, I hope that you received my book Fish Farm a few weeks ago. Hopefully you had a chance to look at it. I was out east this weekend, stayed at Gurneys Inn in Montauk and had a great time at Harvest restaurant in Montauk. The real reason for my visit was to deliver my book to Bookhampton. They have graciously accepted my novel for their three stores and I am thrilled. I think the little book shop in Montauk will do the same. I also went to the real Fish Farm in Amagansett and met Mr. Valenti, the owner and gave him a copy. He’s a real character. My wife and I had a great conversation about the book with him. He promised to read it and give me his review. I’m hoping that Fish Farm will take off as a beach book this summer. I’m considering placing an ad in Dan’s Papers and would like to hear from you regarding your opinion on the best, most cost-effective way to publicize this novel. Any suggestions you have for me would be greatly appreciated. All the best! Lou Romano This is an extraordinary book.—DR

time it bloomed I couldn’t believe it was about five years ago, then again about two years later. The first time the flower was bigger and smelled so strong it was sickening! Thank goodness the plant is on the porch and out of the living space. I was so excited when it bloomed; the bloom lasted about a month. It has to be cut back again as it is up to the ceiling and leaves are getting crushed. I’ll do it around May. Dan that is my story of “THE CORN PLANT” Marcie, Sag Harbor It’ll take over your house if you let it. —DR

HOW CORNY CAN YOU GET? Dear Dan, With reference to your February 25 article on the corn plant, I also have a corn plant. I purchased two sticks from the New York World’s Fair, in Flushing Meadows, which was held In 1964-65. It has been trimmed back about four times and the cuttings have been re-potted...(I put them in water till they root, then in dirt). I have had three different re-potted ones, they need to be in bigger pots, however bigger pot bigger plant...(one big one is enough)…the mother plant has had flowers only twice in all those years. The first

TRULY TEDIOUS Dear Dan, Re: Harry Curry Was he a joke? You printed his letter a couple of weeks ago, and he said that you should stop writing, because you’re so bad! That’s why I came to your defense! I am surprised no one else did. Since I’m writing, I have to comment on your piece of Man vs. Planet. To think that we have control over it. It’s like all nationalities claiming to be the discoverer of America. (Including myself, giving credit to Hungarians).

LEAVE MY WIFE’S BOX ALONE Dear Dan, Your article on page 15 of the March 4, 2011 issue says you have a Post Office box in Sagaponack numbered 533. That is my wife’s box, not yours. Yours is 553. By the way, she has never received any mail intended for you. I fear that she now will. Joseph R. Sahid Oops.—DR

POLICE BLOTTER Just Out For Some Golf A man in East Hampton decided that it was a good idea to walk out on the Village Green and hit a few golf balls. Police were alerted by a bystander about the golfer. No arrests were made. The man shot an 86. North Fork Owning a vineyard on the North Fork can be stressful, but a vineyard owner last week took things too far when he punched and slapped an employee several times. The victim made a citizen’s arrest and called police, who then arrested the owner and charged him with second-degree harassment. Urinator A man in Sag Harbor was arrested for public urination after he was observed by an officer, well, you know. Shelter Island Old Man McGumbus, 94, was arrested for the fourth time in one month after he was seen flagging down cars at the Shelter Island Ferry and using a fake badge that read “Shelter Island Border Security.” He was inspecting the vehicles to make sure that there were no hippies in them. One driver caught on to the fake badge and called police. When McGumbus was arrested, he was quoted saying, “This is outrageous! There’d be no country if it wasn’t for me!” Police released McGumbus on his own

recognizance. His fake badge was confiscated as evidence. CPR Saves Lives A man in East Hampton who had a heart attack was rescued by East Hampton Village Police officers who performed CPR and portable defibrillation. The man, who has a wife and two kids, did not have a pulse when police arrived. He was revived by the officers and transported to the hospital, where he went into a coma and awoke two weeks later. Pretty amazing. DWI After weaving all over the road, a man in Hampton Bays was arrested for driving while intoxicated. When he blew into the Breathalyzer and was told that he was over the legal limit, the man said to the officer, “Am I just drunk or am I really, really drunk?” Stay Classy Westhampton A fight that broke out during the Westhampton Beach St. Patrick’s Day parade turned into a huge brawl that included nearly 100 people. Officers responded to a fight outside of a restaurant and as they attempted to break it up, another fight broke out. Police from Southampton, East Hampton, Riverhead and Quogue all responded in order to break it up and fired pepper spray onto the crowd. By David Lion Rattiner

Send your letters to askdan@danspapers.com (e-mails only, please) The planet was here long before the geniuses of the 20th and 21st Century. Somehow God managed to evolve it. I agree that we bad humans do lots of harmful things, not only to the Earth, the climate and other humans, but it’s hardly enough to cause GLOBAL catastrophe. Even if we destroy ourselves, the Earth will still be here. Scientifically yours, Judy Sleed In recent weeks, with what’s happened in Japan, I wonder even about that. —DR THE WHO Dear Dan, It’s been about 8 years. You’d written that Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft had had dinner at Gosman’s. I had brought them there – they were, Mel still is, my closest friend – and we didn’t have dinner there. I wrote to tell you that, you printed my letter, and your one-word remark at the end was “Who?” (Of course, all you had to do was Google me or Wikipedia me, etc., and you would have known “Who?” So, just saw your Who’s Here column about my friend, Dick Cavett. And, after all these years, it has reminded me to answer your “Who?” Dick hosted one of my very successful TV infomercials – for my “Memory Power Course”. It was the #1 infomercial in the country for many months. Now, more as to “Who?” My first book on memory training (1956), How To Develop A Super-Power Memory has sold over 8 million copies and been translated into 18 languages that I know of. One of my other 14 books on the subject, The Memory Book, was on the NY Times bestseller list for over 50 weeks. At one point, it beat out All The President’s Men and the Gulag Archipelago. It is the only book of my subject to ever appear on that list – as did another of my books, Remembering People, (The Key To Success). I’ve appeared on just about every radio and TV talk show in the country – and abroad – going back to Jack Paar, Ed Sullivan, David Susskind, Merv Griffin, Mike Douglas (many times on Merv and Mike), 23 times on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” (on most of my TV appearances I remember the names of everyone in the studio audience, which is what I do at personal appearances, corporation seminars, etc.), “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” and on and on. Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Police Comm. Ray Kelly use my systems, as does ex-Secy of State Colon Powell, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Alan Alda, and on and on. I was seated right behind you at last August’s author/library thing in East Hampton, with my current book, Ageless Memory (Simple Secrets of Keeping Your Brain Young), geared toward grey heads like you and me. The jacket on the hardback says that I live in New York and in Westhampton Beach. (Oh, and Mr. Cavett would tell you that my 29 books on card magic are alltime bestsellers in that milieu.) I can go on and on, let me know if you’d like me to, but I think that perhaps I’ve answered your “Who?” Can’t help wondering who that “Who?” would apply to more – you or me? All the best, HARRY LORAYNE. Me. You’re Who’s Who. —DR
