John Jilnicki, who is the town attorney, said, "It's really not fair to any of the bidders." Quigley returned to the lectern. "The words `understanding of customer base and community' were underlined, which might unfairly suggest to a bidder that they should give this extra weight." Others grumbled on and on for a bit. Finally it was decided that this thing needed fine-tuning and it should be sent back for discussion for implementation. But in the meantime, with Memorial Day just eight days away, maybe they ought to just go back to where things were last year and use those old rules for this summer. A vote was taken. It was unanimous. The thundering heaps of messages now continued to come into Facebook. But now it was celebratory. "Unbelievable!!!!" "What a story," I wrote. "Congratulations to you all." "So happy," posted John Craft. "My mouth is watering for a Grilled Chicken Caesar Wrap ." Caren Oberg Gomes wrote: "If y'all hear a big woooooo of joy coming from the north, that's just me hootin' from up here on Nantucket." Pratt Bennet wrote: "Boston cheers the DW's stay of execution! Power to the people!" Lee Grimes wrote: "Congratulations, Montauk! We are amazing!" And a group named Defend Montauk wrote this: "Just from pure numbers, we can change all of these wrongs that are occurring in our town. This battle is won. The Ditch Witch and Beach Dog are saved. If you were a part of this, join Defend Montauk so we together can stop any of this from happening to any of our towns and businesses and we will have the supporters to do so. This is the first of many victories to come. Congrats to Lili and Grant and thank you for showing resolve and determination to keep what is rightfully yours!!!!" And this from Lili at the Ditch Witch: "�From the bottom of my heart I would like to express thanks to my dear friends and customers who supported me with their emails, letters, texts and Tweets during this difficult 24 hours. I have never wanted to get back in that Cart more than today. Overwhelmed by your love. Love, Lili Adams, "the Ditch Witch." Ah, but all may not be over. Some vendor trucks are left overnight sometimes so the owners can see to it they have their spot day after day. Turns out there is a law that prohibits this. It's been on the books in East Hampton. But the police have turned a blind eye to it. Until now, they say. Right. Bill & Ed (continued from page 73) 2621 �2010 Closet Factory. All rights reserved.

And then in 2006, an amazing thing happened. The Daily News ran the photo again shortly after the 60th anniversary of Iwo Jima! Gallo was still at his desk, but my dad was now gone. He died of emphysema--like Gallo would--in 1991. Ed was a smoker even before the Marines sent cartons of Camels to our troops during wartime. Indeed my first memory of him is with a pack of Camels rolled up in his white shirtsleeve, so handsome, so young. Anyway, my nephew Paul Dulanto was commuting to his job and reading the Daily News-- back to front for the sports--just like his grandfather (to whom he bears a striking resemblance). And there was the photo of my dad, Paul's grandfather, staring out at him, the same one that had been hanging in his family den since he could remember. My sister called me in Florida to tell me about it. Ed's photo with Bill Gallo lives on! I hope the Daily News runs this photo every year on the anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima, or at least every 10 years or so, in fitting memory of Bill Gallo and other veterans like my dad. There aren't too many of them around anymore, these guys of The Greatest Generation. But it's important to my family's story and I would guess it's central to the Gallo family story too. In fact, I would wager that they played the Marine Corps Hymn at Bill Gallo's funeral just as they did at my father's. Once a Marine, always a Marine. Semper Fi, Mr. Gallo. Miss you daddy.

Well, convincing many of you would probably be as tough as convincing me, a guy who was raised listening to music written by George and Ira Gershwin, Rogers and Hammerstein and Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, that rap is music. But I'll try. After all, fine music and fine cars have a lot in common. Recently, a `31 Bugatti Royale was sold for $17.6 million. A `29 Mercedes Benz SSK changed hands for $7.9 million. An Italian red 1962 Ferrari 330LM racecar went for $7.2 million and a `30 Bentley Speed six captured $5.4 million at auction. A `35 Duesenberg SJ Roadster brought $4.7 million. Whew! Just two weeks ago, an Andy Warhol painting sold for $27 million. True, the timing was right for the Warhol, but no way is that piece of art any more attractive or impressive than say, that `62 Ferrari 330 LM. Let me also say that the Ferrari would also look damn good in your living room, providing you had the right space! On a more serious note, let me bring up the point that when certain cars are worth so much money, they become more than just automobiles. Some of the logic is that they have become objects of art as well as objects of lust, at least to the automobile connoisseur. That vastly expensive `31 Bugatti Royale sedan mentioned above is certainly not as beautiful as say that Ferrari or Duesenberg, but its sheer presence (it's one of the biggest cars ever made) and its rarity, plus the fact that it was designed by an automotive genius, made it beautiful to enough collectors to bid it up at auction to be one of the most expensive cars in the world. Provenance is indeed very important when considering a car's value. To further prove that cars are objects of art many museums around the world have several in their permanent collections. MOMA and the Guggenheim here in New York have several. But just look around you. Look in the car magazines. There is really some beautiful stuff out there, not only from the past, but present-day vehicles. Also, a car does not have to be worth mega-dollars to be a work of art. Take, for instance, a 1957 Chevrolet convertible. Or for that matter a 195557 Chevrolet Nomad station wagon. Park that old Nomad alongside the new Cadillac CTS sport wagon and seriously tell me that someday these two "wagons" will not appear in some museum. They are both art, past and present. A toast to all you readers who stand in your garage and stare at the lines of your car, new or old, you know what I'm talking about. Speaking of art and cars, did you know that around 1978, BMW of Germany sanctioned several famous pop artists to actually paint full-size pictures on several of their new M1 super cars? Andy Warhol and Frank Stella were just two of the artists. The cars were to be raced in a pre- European formula one series call the Pro-Car series. Interestingly enough, about 15 years ago, the colorful Richard Rubio from Westhampton Coachworks had a BMW M1 art car for sale and asked me if I knew anyone who wanted one. I called a friend in Germany who was connected to the German BMW club. Surprisingly, no one was interested. The value of the car then was about $100,000. I mention this because this August 18 to 19, the Guggenheim museum will have Bonhams auction off its BMW M1 art car, which was in the museum's permanent collection. Fifteen years ago I advised my friends in Germany to buy the car, remove the lightweight fiberglass body with the expensive art and hang it on their wall. Then just have a new body built and drive the car. The M1 is a wildly fast machine. Good bidding, and have a great weekend. Remember that at the beginning of this article I said that music and cars have a lot in common? Have you ever heard a Ferrari V-12 engine at high revs? Music to our ears.

Do you have a nickname for your iPhone? Can't live without your "Crack Berry?" Do you fall asleep holding your computer instead of a significant other? These are just a few signs that you may suffer from Internet Addiction Disorder. Academy Award-winning actress and comedian, Whoopi Goldberg, may have the answer to help cut down this destructive behavior. Goldberg recently revealed to her co-hosts, Behar, Hasselbeck and Shepherd, on ABC's "The View," "I don't answer my cellphone. I don't answer the computer. At 6 p.m. everything goes off, except for me." I suspect, to some of you, the thought of turning off the phone or the computer at a specific time sounds preposterous, utterly impossible. The thought could even set off a panic attack. Yet, powering off is a very simple solution to help end IAD, and this H=holiday weekend, the Hamptons will offer several darn good reasons to shut down the technology and make some good ol' fashioned Whoopi Time. Saturday evening, 8 p.m., you can experience Tony Award-winning actress Christine Ebersole and Edward Hibbert perform Love, No�l: The Letters and Songs of No�l Coward live at the Bay Street Theatre. Sunday at 6:30p.m. you can, yet again, make a conscious effort to power down and attend the annual Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic East End benefit at the Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club. Join the Bravo network's head honcho and patriarch of the "Housewives" franchise, Andy Cohen, who is set to attend and will most likely be surrounded by a famous starlet or a bevy of local housewives to stir up some drama. So, ladies, if you don't want to miss out on the fun, "don't be tardy for the party." I couldn't resist. Good to know not all compulsive habits are bad for you. Just ask the thousands of healthconscious Hamptonites who are addicted to Spinning. A fitness phenomenon that started off with a small and sweaty cult-like following continues to expand in the Hamptons this season. If you are looking for treadmills, cross trainers or weight resistance machines you won't find them here. Spin-centric studios are all about finding the burn on a bike. You can expect to see rows of stationary cycles lined up inches apart. But, don't let the immobile factor fool you. Spinning is a full body workout. Generally speaking, spin cycle routines will have you doing a combination of moves, which may include pushups, free weights and even lunges, while cycling. One of the first spin studios in the Hamptons was Zone Hampton which in 2009 transformed into Fly Wheel Sports with seven locations including Sag Harbor and East Hampton. Fly Wheel says they have, "literally reinvented the wheel." For those of you who enjoy some healthy competition, Fly Wheel developed the TorqBoard--an in-studio display that provides riders with the option to compare their performance to the rest of the class in real time. In Amagansett you have B-East Fitness Studio. In Southampton, HardCore Cycling on Route 27 will be offering complimentary spin classes this Holiday weekend. SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice set up a seasonal spin studio in Bridgehampton five years ago. They both believed indoor cycling could be mentally inspiring and offer a full-body workout. Their spin philosophy was an instant hit and over the years has attracted a dedicated celebrity following.

This ritual of remembrance brings families together to embrace the freedom we have and meditate on the price it comes with. Golf has its own tribute to people that have had an impact on the game and made it as popular throughout the world as it is today. The Memorial Tournament is Jack Nicklaus' vision that celebrates his passion for tournament golf and an opportunity to give back to a hometown community that has given him so much. Every year the tournament is themed around a person, living or dead, who has contributed to the game of golf. This was Nicklaus' idea as a way to perpetuate the achievements of the game's greatest individuals. In 2010, the person honored was Spain's Seve Ballesteros. It was almost a year later, at age 54, that Ballesteros would pass away from complications of brain cancer. Ballesteros was an iconic figure in European golf, doing what Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer did for the sport in America. Ballesteros got his humble start at the game hitting rocks with a homemade 3-iron. One could argue that this beginning was the reason behind his legendary Breathe Better, Look Better This S re attractive nose fi r r e, rg e. An attractive roperl .

For Ballesteros there was no such thing as "trouble," winning a record 50 European tour victories including five major championships. Moreover, Ballesteros helped put European golf on the map, making the Ryder Cup one of the biggest events in the world of sport. Lee Trevino attributes Ballesteros' short game success to the amount of spin (or lack thereof) he could impart on the golf ball. Trevino compliments his military-like action of keeping his lower body still, therefore allowing his upper body and arms to create more speed. The average person uses more leg action, which steals essential upper-body speed to create spin. Trevino might be right when it comes to discovering the secret behind Ballesteros' short game prowess, however one should use caution if trying to mimic his motion. Too much of one ingredient might ruin the recipe. Ballesteros will always be remembered for his magical short game and his imagination in hitting creative shots. Today's young golfers can learn a lot if they play the game more like Ballesteros and less robotic. Golf is a hard game and to be successful you should play the game with a marriage of feel and mechanics. The next time you are practicing your short game, take out a 3-iron (if you still have one) and try to hit some shots in memory of Ballesteros. You will have a sense of what a magician he was.

Dan's Papers May 27, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 85 3753 Dan's Papers May 27, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 86 Restaurant Review: Luce + Hawkins By Stacy Dermont Luce + Hawkins is one of my top three favorite restaurants. I don't qualify that with "on Long Island." I'm in good company � the Herbfarm Restaurant outside Seattle often tops best restaurant lists and the Herbfarm was where Chef Keith Luce used to hang his toque. Lucky for Long Islanders, Luce came home to the North Fork two years ago. A lot has changed at Luce + Hawkins since I was last there in October. Happily their menu changes frequently so you can count on experiencing the very best local produce at its peak. The biggest change, though, is the addition of master sushi chef Minoru Suzuki. He deserves a feature article of his own � so you can read more about him and his art in an upcoming edition of Dan's Papers. Let's review the glorious meal that my husband and I enjoyed at Luce + Hawkins last week. Of course we started with cocktails from the "Prohibition Era," as the menu describes them. Cocktails during the Volstead Act years (1919-1933) were designed to mask the taste of bad booze, not so with these modern versions. My husband's Harvey Wallbanger was made with LiV Vodka. My Pink Lady was made with Fifty Pounds London Gin, S. Dermont Jedediah Hawkins Inn, Jamesport 3847 housemade grenadine and an egg white secured from one of the Luce + Hawkins resident hens. I couldn't quite tell if it came from a Silver-Backed Wyandotte or a Bard Plymouth. My husband said I have a woefully underdeveloped palate. I'd never indulged in a Pink Lady before. Pink Ladies are no lightweights. There's a special treat at the bottom of your glass if you drink up this pretty, foamy pink drink. Before we could start the meal proper, Chef Suzuki sent out a Fluke Carpaccio as an amuse bouche. Wow! were our bouches amused. There are so many lovely little savory notes surrounding this finely cut fish � carrot, radish, nori, with a bit of heat. Delicious. We demolished it. Then he sent out a Japanese seared duck. A Crescent Farms duck that, to an American palate, tastes a bit pickled � next to perfectly tender-crisp Wells Farms asparagus spears, served cold. Don't miss experiencing the creamy, garlicky Japanese mayonnaise! It's not like ranch dressing, it's like ranch heaven! So then we started with our appetizers � the soup of the night for me � Carrot-Leek, and Shrimp and Lobster "Meatballs" (quotes theirs) with Lemon Mayonnaise for the husband. Carrots plus Satur Farms leeks equals something wonderful. The meatballs were deemed "like little crab cakes" by my husband � but I found their texture much more jolly than crab (no pun intended). They are solid, but not overly dense. Syracha lends a bit of tasty heat. For my entr�e I ordered the Atlantic Cod. I remember commenting, "This is a lot of cod!" followed by a first, delightfilled bite. My next memory is of a puddle of miso broth at the bottom of my dish. Oh Mommy, umami � that was good too! My husband's entr�e, the Friday Daily Special, was the Shepard's Pie. It was also on the large size and gone in a flash. He declared it "the tastiest shepard's pie ever" and "buttery and beefy." High praise. My husband comes from a long line of Cornish eaters. The beef is a house-ground blend of chuck, brisket, short rib and sirloin. For dessert my husband went for his standard heated cognac, expertly served by Luce + Hawkins Director Michael Kaminski. I ordered the Caramel Corn and Corn Cake (continued on page 90) Dan's Papers May 27, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 87 3359 Dan's Papers May 27, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 88 Guild Hall to Screen Film About Paul Bowles By Elise D'Haene When the documentary film Paul Bowles: The Complete Outsider was released in 1993, it received accolades from critics across the board, who described the film as "absorbing," "amazing," "tantalizing," "intimate" and "irresistible." A Washington Post critic wrote, "A fabulous film! You want to see it over and over again!" Regina Weinreich, who co-produced and codirected the film with Catherine Hiller Warnow, has lived part time in Montauk for more than 20 years. She met Paul Bowles in Morocco in 1983 when The School of Visual Arts invited her to teach with him in a summer program. Realizing that this world-class writer lived in Tangier, the school offered a creative writing workshop along with their classes in fine arts, photography and graphic design. "Paul, however, did not teach. So that is where I came in. I had just completed a PhD degree in American literature. We taught the class together," Weinreich said. "In the U.S., at the time, Bowles was not well known, even though he had had a distinguished career as a composer, working with Tennessee Williams and Lillian Hellman. When I returned to New York, we began a correspondence. One day, after receiving a letter from him, I began to think CAMP GAN ISRAEL SOUTHAMPTON " Catherine Hiller Warnow, Paul Bowles, Regina Weinreich about how to bring his work to an American audience." Some of the greatest writers and artists of the 20th century encountered Bowles, among them, Aaron Copland, Gertrude Stein, W.H. Auden, Tennessee Williams, William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg and Truman Capote. A rare opportunity will be afforded on Sunday, May 29, at Guild Hall in East Hampton at 4 p.m. to see a screening of Paul Bowles: The Complete Outsider, with an introduction to the film by Weinreich and Warnow and a question-and-answer session after the screening. (Tickets cost $12, $10 for members.) As an icon to the Beat Generation, Bowles' writing and life have influenced everyone from William Burroughs (whose Naked Lunch was inspired by Bowles), to David Cronenberg's film of the same name, to Bernardo Bertolucci, whose film adaptation of The Sheltering Sky was a critical and popular hit. Weinrich, who is a scholar of the Beat Generation, approached Warner, a novelist she had met when they both taught at Brooklyn College, about the possibility of making a film about Bowles. Both women had worked in film previously, she said, so they "applied for a grant that week. We did not get it, but that started us off on the project." Filmed in Morocco and featuring exclusive interviews with cultural icons such as Allen Ginsberg, the film explores the esoteric life of the man who wrote the The Sheltering Sky, one of the most provocative and influential novels of the 20th century, which was later adapted to film by Bernardo Bertolucci. When asked what most surprised her about Bowles, Weinrich said, "He was full of contradictions. He was well known for his travel writing. Yet, during the time I taught with him, when I would say I wanted to visit Fez or other Moroccan cities, he would caution me against it. `Why do you want to go?' he would ask. `You'll catch a cold.' He was like a fussy parent. He claimed not to want to be interviewed, but people would show up 3779 AGES 2-12 YEAR OLDS GIVE YOUR CHILD THE SUMMER OF A LIFETIME!

"Them" features some of the best wines from "abroad," including some stellar Finger Lakes wines. What remains unchanged at Luce + Hawkins is the overall sense of fun and adventure. The entire staff are serious foodies who clearly enjoy their work. Good service contributes so much to a fine dining experience. Our server, Nicole, put me in mind of a younger Amy Adams � with all the verve and none of the drama. Taylor and the other students who clear tables are quiet, efficient and sweet. Look for an article about Chef Keith Luce's work to preserve North Fork food culture outside of his kitchen in an upcoming edition of Dan's Papers.

I think he would have been devastated had people stopped coming." Bowles was married to fellow author Jane Bowles, and both had numerous homosexual affairs. In the film, Bowles speaks candidly about his evolution as a writer and composer, but also about his complicate personal life. The film includes archival footage, photos and interviews with those who knew him. Weinreich said that "the film had a profound effect on me, in one way; it made me think of filmmaking as something I could do. My relationship with Paul changed after making the film. He first saw it in Atlanta, Georgia, at a private screening with many of his friends assembled for a birthday celebration. He thanked me for making sense of his life, but I always felt he kept his true feelings close to the vest." She said that Debra Winger had the same experience with Bowles when Bernardo Bertolucci made the The Sheltering Sky. Weinriech, who is the author of The Beat Generation: An American Dream and Kerouac's Spontaneous Poetics, continues to write about Kerouac and Burroughs. As a cultural critic she publishes on The Huffington Post and her blog gossipcentral. She is also working on a memoir.

After 62 years, under the knowledgeable and successful management of the Allan family, the Gateway Playhouse is now a nonprofit organization. The transition occurred this winter, and the managing corporation known as the Performing Arts Center of Suffolk County was created on February 8, 2011. The Gateway Playhouse still functions under the same name, and the Allan family retains an important role in the theater's existence. Paul Allan is the Producer, as well as holding an important seat representing the Allan family on the Board of Directors. His sister, Robin Joy Allan, is the Artistic and Casting Director, the School Director, handles acting class admissions, and teaches the advanced class. "Going to the theater isn't as unique as it once was. We are finding it harder and harder to fill seats...it's the `chicken and the egg' problem--it's hard to raise the money without a full staff, but we can't hire staff without money," Allan said, adding, "Any additional funding will hopefully be able to help us survive." The Gateway Playhouse not only hosts amazing plays, but also offers very selective, professional-grade acting classes. The children's classes accommodate ages 6-18. These classes are beneficial for children's social and intellectual The children's performances offered this summer are: Cinderella, Peter Rabbit, Jack and the Beanstalk, Dinosaurs, Tales from the Forest (a combination of Goldilocks & the Three Bears and Hansel and Gretel), and Dora's Pirate Adventure. Allan said, "It's important to get future patrons accustomed to coming to the theater. They need to learn what an actor and live performance is." "The ambitious nature of our schedule sets us apart from other theatres. It's a pretty exciting line-up," Allan boasts, "One big block buster after the other. There's a new show every three weeks." The summer shows are: West Side Story (see review on page 102), Legally Blonde: The Musical, Monty Python's Spamalot, Sweeney Todd, Sunset Boulevard, The Who's Tommy, and `S Wonderful. The Gateway Playhouse will host a gala fundraiser on July 23 at 6 p.m. to be held in and outside the theater. It will be an elegant evening of cocktails and mingling, dinner, silent auction, raffle and wonderful memories. Guests will also enjoy an abridged presentation from The Who's Tommy performed by the acting school. Seating is limited, so don't wait to grab your tickets. Show your support for the community and the arts. Classes and performances are going on all summer long. See you at the theater. For more information about classes, shows, or donating to the Performing Arts Center of Suffolk County at the Gateway Playhouse visit gatewayplayhouse.com. When you're a Jet! development. "Many children are contained in their shells and need to be brought out," Allan shares. "The acting classes are taught by real acting professionals, not people who are out of touch with current theatre life." The children receive top-notch coaching as well as vital help with the audition process and landing a job. "We're not a theatre factory. Our goal is to train and prepare students for a future career in the arts...Our quality is close to or surpasses New York City performances. We have Broadway actors as well as up-and-comers on our stage...Our shows are fresh and exciting since (there's) only two weeks of rehearsal time." Unlike other theatres, which force students to study elsewhere after they have "ripened," the Gateway Playhouse welcomes adults age 19 and up. A class specifically for college students is also offered.

In her long career, much of which has been on NPR where she currently has, among others, a program called "The Faith Middleton Show," she has, by her count, interviewed about 20,000 people. She has also won two Peabody Awards, journalism's highest honor. "I've interview on average three people a day," she said. "Five days a week for 20 years and loved every minute of it." But on this occasion she was not interviewing me. I was interviewing her. We were sitting on the sofa in my living room here in East Hampton. Faith Middleton, a slender, tall and handsome woman, grew up in Hartford, Connecticut, the daughter of two Scottish parents. Her father ran a restaurant for a while, then was a salesman. Also for a while, he was a prizefighter. Her mother worked in the private homes of the wealthy, sometimes as a social secretary, a cook or a maid. Middleton has a sister who is 13 years older and also an older brother, who later in life, also became a professional boxer with a final record of 52 wins and two defeats. "My mother often said those were the only two fights when, before the bout, she had been unable to bring him her vegetable soup." As a small girl, Faith found that her family moved around a lot as her mom's employment situations changed. "We often lived in the mansions where my mother worked," she said. "We were living in the Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port the year Jack Kennedy ran for President." They also lived in Florida in the wintertime, mostly because by this time her mother had become ill. Indeed, when she was 14, her parents died, first her mother and then, a month later, her father. "My sister Sally was my savior," she said. "She was also my best friend at that time. And still is. She was 27 when our parents died and she took me in to her home with her husband and kids in Manchester, Connecticut. There was this little sewing room they made into a bedroom for me. That's where I went to high school, in Manchester." Faith thought she would be an artist and study at the Hartford Art School. But with her parents gone, there was no money for her to go to college. "But then a dean at my high school heard about this and found me and said he would Inquirer in Manchester, The Providence Journal, where I became the chief Sunday feature writer, then at Connecticut Magazine. They had called and asked if I would like to be editor. What an opportunity. So I went and I stayed there three years." "What happened after that?" "Some new guy bought the magazine. Then he came in and fired everybody, the whole staff, including me. Sometimes they do that." "So then what?" "I got a job offer from The Washingtonian to be their number two editor. I took it, but I wasn't all that happy about moving down there. I think my lack of enthusiasm was in my voice. "The editor called me in Connecticut one day. `You're not communicating with me,' he said. `You're not coming.' He had heard it in my voice. He was right. I was not coming." It was at this point, in 1980, that in a very strange way, Faith found her way into radio broadcasting. Connecticut Public Radio, in its early days then, called, and asked if she would like to work with them. "They asked me to come in and do a voice test. At the test, I thought I was terrible. They asked me to pronounce the names of a list of classical music composers. So I did that." The job they offered her was to be co-host for a show called "On the Town." Her co-host did the Broadway show scene. He'd interview someone in "I'm in the Money." She'd interview some poor people. "After awhile, the programmers said this was really two separate shows. So he got his, and I got mine, `The Faith Middleton Show.'" At this point, she realized that there was something really amazing about doing radio broadcasting. "The idea that my words would fly into the air without having to have me write them down, I had first thought, wouldn't work for me. But then I listened to them. And I decided yes, print was intimate, but radio was even more intimate. Because it's just sound, people listen to just one voice and attend to it more carefully. There's a connection." Thus Faith Middleton developed this speaking voice that so many people--millions of them--love, which is really not far from what it had been before, apparently, and which is really not much different than the way she speaks today in my living room. The voice that comes from this very beauti(continued on next page) Faith Middleton, Radio Host For the next month, Middleton will interview some of the interesting people of the Hamptons at the Wolffer Estate tasting room. help me. He arranged for me to apply for scholarships. And I was accepted and went to Eastern Connecticut State University studying to be a teacher. But I soon dropped the teaching idea. I wasn't meant to be a teacher." She graduated with degrees in English and sociology. She had no idea what she would do with these degrees. "Tell me how you got your first job," I asked. "I had gone to a dance in my junior year of college. I met a reporter there who gave me his card. He worked for The Willimantic Chronicle and said he could probably get a job there for me. So I applied and met with the editor. I thought maybe he'd want me to sell ads. "The editor asked me one question. Do you type? I told him I had edited the school paper. He said here's your desk and typewriter. You're the women's editor. Well, I just loved it immediately." "And that was it?" "That was it. Soon, they switched me to hard news. I stayed there several years. Then I had jobs at several other newspapers, The Journal Dan's Papers May 27, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 94 Middleton (continued from previous page) ful woman is soft, gentle and warm, but with emotions hinted at in every sentence, just the slightest variation of a feeling in a certain direction that you pick up and latch on to and wonder where it goes from here. It really is quite remarkable. And it's a voice that is inquisitive and smart and non-threatening and somehow very much a voice that you want to be around. But for her, she says, the voice is just a tool. "My dream every day is to present an amazing person. I say to the listener--listen to this!" Faith interviews in the following categories: culture, food, sustainability, news, politics, entertainment, poverty, history, medicine, humanity and art. (She's just completed a sixpart series of interviews in New York at the Museum of Modern Art.) "Who are the most interesting people you have ever interviewed?" I asked. "And why? Who comes to mind." She answered this by coupling a certain person with an extraordinary incident they had told her. "Well, Mary Martin. She told me about a time when she was asked to attend a fundraiser and re-enact the famous Peter Pan scene where she flies over everybody. They rigged her up with a wire and at a certain point, she came flying over the crowd--it was about 1,500 people--with this fairy dust in a small sack she had been given and which she slowly sprinkled down onto everybody." Faith paused. "Whatever it was sent them all off choking and fleeing the scene. "And then there was Willie Ruff, a jazz musician. Later in life he was a professor at Yale in their music department and was selected to be one of the first people to go off to China from America. It was a cultural exchange. China had been closed off from the West for a hundred years. In any case, as you know, jazz is all about improvisation. He was told, however, that in China, there is no improvisation. You play what is written down. So what he did when he got on stage was call up this Chinese piano player from the audience to play a theme he knew. After he played it, Ruff played it on his French horn. Then Ruff asked that they both play it together, and after one time through the theme, the piano player continued to stay with the theme, but Ruff went off on a very passionate riff. In the audience, people were gasping and moving around. Improvisation had come to China." "Anyone else?" "Playwright Arthur Miller. I was interviewing him at his home. And I saw this strange portrait, clearly of him, on the wall of his kitchen in magic marker. I asked him about it. He told me that he had been on the phone one day when Alexander Calder, the sculptor, who happened to live next door, came in. Miller had held up his hand. He'd be a few minutes on the phone. So Calder looked at the wall, then looked at a magic marker on the table and spent the next 10 minutes making the picture. `We'll never scrub it off, of course,' Miller told me." Who else had she interviewed? Well, everybody. Aaron Copeland, Sid Caesar, Gloria Steinem, Lyn Redgrave, Julia Childs, Anna Devere Smith (the playwright and actor who mimes the many characters who make up her plays and does all the parts,) Yehudi Meduen, Yo Yo Ma, Pincus Zuckerman. Faith Middleton remained single for many years. But nine years ago, she met the love of her life, Fern Berman. "We've been married three times," Faith told me. "The laws keep changing, so we have to keep getting married again and again." They share a home on Long Island Sound, at Stony Creek, Connecticut. The two of them go everywhere together, or so it seems. Fern was in my living room too for this interview. And she will be with her for the next month as Faith Middleton interviews some of the interesting people in the Hamptons, every day, at the Wolffer Estate tasting room where she will be holding court with all her microphones and soundmen and equipment for her "Faith Middleton Show," live, from Sagaponack. Faith Middleton's shows, "The Food Shmooze," "Politics, Burgers & Beer," "Book Show," "On the Road," and "The Faith Middleton Show," can be found on almost any NPR station in the New York Metropolitan area at 3 p.m. and 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, at WNPR.

It was fun to groove on this former member of Tony! Toni! Tone!'s new sound, with a lot of oldies in the mix. The crowd, like the music, was a rich mix of old, young, black and white. It's a real gift that we have this beautiful performance space that can bring 425 people together at a time � to celebrate our shared culture. The surprise hit of the night for me, though, was the opening act, Quadron.

I don't know how I'd missed them; I can easily see why their self-titled album made New York Magazine's top 10 list last year. Lead singer, Coco Maja Hastrup Karsh�j, makes it all look so easy. A spotlight illuminated her as she pulled off a vintage Billie Holiday look. Her rich but playful alto voice, close-mic'd and saturated with reverb, held the audience spellbound. Her small-statured sidekick and producer, Robin Hannibal, played spare keyboard accompaniments and sang backup while a computer provided rhythms and additional vocal harmonies. There were some synchronized moves and clapping happening. It so worked! Check out their track "Jeans" on YouTube. It's got a monster hook � "I'm into my old jeans." Pretty freaky-good. Karsh�j and Hannibal have such innocent-looking faces, they are the perfect team to make sexy fun with a capital "F." If you need your female singers served up as those who came before: CoCo Karsh�j is one third Bjork, one third Annabella Lwin and about one third of a very sexy Allyson Moyette, plus more than a hint of a young Maria McKee, but all Danish. I can't wait to hear what these outrageously talented kids come up with next! After the electronic soul of Quadron, Raphael Saadiq's old-school R&B seemed pretty mainstream. After playing a few vaguely Sly Stone-influenced tracks from his latest release, "Stone Rollin," he pleased the crowd by returning to the makeout music that made him famous. Back in the standing room, it was all about dirty dancing at that point. The thing is, part of the charm of Saadiq's recordings is in their faithful, meticulous recreation of mid-60s sounds: his voice is often distorted to sound as if it was recorded badly using vintage gear, and his production styles mimic those of Sly Stone, Motown and Stax. Like most studio-dependent effects, these cannot be reproduced live, and the music suffers as a result. We have a lot more to look forward to at WHBPAC this summer, big name acts include: Josh Ritter--June 3. Sachal Vasandani--July 23. Elvis Costello and the Imposters--July 24. Keb' Mo September--24.

Another comedic high point is when the Jets' members perform "Gee Officer Krupke." This is Sondheim at his satirical best lampooning society's take on the causes of juvenile delinquency. The only problem with this song is its placing in the show, where it almost is a case of bathos after a time of high drama and tension--it always seems that it would fit better in the context of the first act's numbers. The entire cast and orchestra are to be commended for setting such a high standard for the season's opener...a season when Gateway has become a nonprofit organization under the title of The Performing Arts Center of Suffolk County at Gateway Playhouse. It is increasingly difficult to meet budgets through ticket sales, so this move will enable Gateway to look for sponsorship at all levels, from regulars who love this theatre and its productions, to companies and corporations that want to invest in local arts. Gateway has survived through the good work of the Allan family for more than 60 years and hopefully, the new structure will ensure it a long future.

Borrman wants the creation of The Market to come to fruition based on the collaboration from the local community of designers, farmers, artists, or anyone else who is interested in participating. A few of the guests that I personally knew included Scott Chaskey (farmer and poet), Martine Abitbol (professional baker), Bennet Konesni (farmer and musician), and Dr. Michael ClarjenArconada, (practitioner of Natural Biological Medicine). After the tour we had the opportunity to listen to a brief explanation of Keil's project, followed by lunch, which consisted of an exquisite leg of lamb brought in from an upstate farm and cooked by Borrman himself. During lunch attendees broke away into groups to explore ideas for The Market in three categories: design, function, and community outreach. If you are interested in this project, contact Keil at firstname.lastname@example.org. Discover Watermill takes place on August 14, 3-6 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required. More information is available at watermillcenter.org. Next, we celebrated World Turtle Day at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge. This wonderful setting, overlooking Old Ice Pond, is surrounded by live tortoises and turtles of all sizes and shapes. The director of the center gave the attendees a talk about the anatomy of turtles, their likes and dislikes, and warned the children who were present about the dangers of snapping turtles, among other things. People love having turtles as pets because they're so prehistoric, yet they may turn some people off due to the fact that some can outlive their owners, and because they need a lot of care. There are many different types of turtles, from the local box variety, to red sliders, and to the giant green sea turtles. They all share some common characteristics. For instance, did you know that they all have 13 scoops (square-like patterns) on their shell, or that they all like lots of heat, or that some can live longer than others (a tortoise can live up to 100 years while a red-eyed slider can live up to 40 or more)? Some important tips: What do you do if you find a turtle crossing the road? Ideally, don't move or take him/her away. Beware of touching a snapping turtle! However, if a box turtle is in the middle of a busy street, take note of the direction it's going in and carefully transport it to the side of the road. Turtles are used to living in the same place for many years and they can die from simply being removed from their natural environment. Even more, there is a possibility that they have laid eggs around that area that they will lose. Can you leave a non-native turtle in the wild? It is better not to because some turtles can get aggressive if they are not in their natural environment. Can you pet a water turtle? It is best not to as they swim in the water and are likely to have salmonella. How can I help turtles? Use less plastic because this waste is ending up in the water. Or better yet, stop buying drinks that come in plastic bottles and reduce your use of plastic bags. Visit quoguewildliferefuge.org if you are interested in sponsoring or adopting a turtle. You may also get involved locally in other areas. Stay tuned for the next Community Discussion Event (a true exercise in real democracy): Transparency-Accountability in Open Government. The next discussion will be focused on Progressive Water Pollution and Pervasive Groundwater Contamination, preceded by a free screening of Tapped, a documentary about the water bottling industry. The event will be held sometime in late June. Organized and Coordinated by the East End Community Action Team for Open Government and Turtle Shell Health, helping to make the understanding of the natural healing approach much more accessible to everyone.

Now that technology provides easy access to music of every spot and stripe, how do you choose what to play when you play? Below are some suggestions from the Dan's Papers staff. We work and play hard. Enjoy! For "Hamptons Epicure" Columnist and Dan's Papers Sections Editor Stacy Dermont, summer memories often involve riding in the back of a pickup truck with the radio blaring. Whether going to a swimming hole, chicken barbeque or tractor pull, Creedence is in order. Specifically, Creedence Clearwater Revival's hit singles, "Lookin' Out My Back Door," "Green River," "Born on the Bayou," and "Bad Moon Rising." Of course David Bowie is never out of place at a party. "Young Americans," "Golden Years," and "Let's Dance" can really get the mirror ball rolling. Dan's Editorial Intern Alexandra Andreassen writes, "The golden sunshine, cruising around the Hamptons with the wind blowing through my hair, and a great song on the radio--that is the essence of summer to me. The song that most reminds me of summer is `I Gotta Feeling' by the Black Eyed Peas from their album The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies). It was very popular in 2009, which was the first summer that I had my driver's license. Every time I hear that song, it conjures up memories of my newfound freedom, driving around with my younger sister and friends in tow. It seemed like whenever I got in the car that song was on the radio, and we sang along every time we heard it. No matter if I was going to Cooper's Beach or to my summer job, it was exhilarating to finally be able to get around on my own. Couple that with the fun of the season, and it was one to remember. `I Gotta Feeling' brings me back to this excitement, spending time with my best friends, and all the pleasures of a summer in the Hamptons." Dan's Sales Manager Lori Berger is always up for a good rock n' roll song. She hooks her Sirius portable to her stereo, turns on her outside speakers, and is the hostess with the mostest to the sounds of the 60s...Tommy James' "Mony Mony," The Monkees' "Last Train to Clarksville," Lulu's "To Sir with Love," Petula Clark's "Downtown." Oh yeah. Dan's Editorial Intern Jacqueline Duda says that "laid back, carefree living is what the summer months are meant for. Spending time on the beach soaking in the sun. Not having to worry about focusing on schoolwork and other academic and non-academic stressors that are accompanied by the cooler and less free-feeling months throughout the year. The epitome of this for myself is demonstrated through country music, and more specifically Keith Urban's Golden Road album released in 2002. Growing up, country music always went hand in hand with the summertime lifestyle. Driving around with the windows down, my Dad at the wheel listening to country all-stars. When it came to the summer of 2007, the first summer I was able drive, playing country music through the speakers was a given. Golden Road became a favorite with the array of catchy tunes that, without fail, put a smile on my face. The album is a symbol of freedom and an easygoing time of life. Anytime a song from the album plays I can't help but take a deep breath and reminisce on that teenage summer." When out on the her boat, Dan's Papers Assistant to the Publisher and Events Coordinator, Ellen Dioguardi, likes to listen to Steely Dan's greatest hits and Squeeze (especially "Pulling Mussels from a Shell") while reading a book or Frank Sinatra (the Nelson Riddle arrangements) such as "Fly Me to the Moon" or "All of Me." Or anything with Count Basie playing piano, when the fish aren't biting and her husband wants to dance. The fish seem to prefer the radio to be tuned to National Public Radio's comedy shows (everyone's a music critic). Around the house Ellen admits the most recent trend has been to let iTunes Genius look at the very eclectic (Sinatra and Sarah Vaughn to Elvis Costello to Eric Clapton and beyond) mixture of tunes already downloaded to Ellen's computer and make suggestions. Pandora is also a new favorite app. Mixing it up seems to be the musical rule in this household and as one friend commented after a party at Ellen's house, "You never know what music is going to come out of that stereo." 3655 Dan's Papers May 27, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 106 3678 Dan's Papers May 27, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 107 Free One - Get OneChair Beach Free Buy Choose from Over 500 Chairs /D\�DW%DFNSDFN&KDLUV'HOX[H%DFNSDFN%LJ0HQ�V+LJK%R\'HOX[H&DQRS\ Coupon Valid on all chairs for $39.99 or more thru Tuesday May 31st From suntan lotion to boogie boards, from Frisbees to beach balls, from coolers to the hottest new beach games, from sandals to bathing suits, Outdoors has it all.

"Beach books" used to be in high demand here in the Hamptons. You needed a few long books to get you through all that sunbathing. Sunbathing is not so much in vogue anymore but beach books are more popular than ever thanks to wireless reading devices such as Kindle. Since you can now read just about any book, anywhere, what will it be? Dan's Papers "Hamptons Epicure" columnist Stacy Dermont has two solid suggestions: "Jacques Pepin's 2003 bestselling memoir The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen and Herman Melville's 1851 classic Moby Dick. Pepin's memoir includes some hilarious and telling Hamptons misadventures. I laugh out loud every time I think of Pepin and Pierre Franey in a boat off Springs, attempting to feed lobsters a bunch of calves' heads. Trust me, it's funnier than it sounds and anyway, it's worth reading this book just to revisit Pepin's food-centric upbringing in WWII-era France. Moby Dick is no longer the Moby Dick you had to read in high school. It turns out that when you get older and read for pleasure, Moby Dick contains some really funny scenarios � like the town that eats nothing but chowder all day. Any book that refers to Sag Harbor as "Sin City" is worth a go and, hey, who couldn't use a little more......moby in their life?" Editorial Intern Marissa Pollina suggests: "The memoir, An Italian Affair, by Laura Fraser, is definitely one of my favorite summer novels. This memoir is about Laura's mid-life crisis after her husband ups and leaves her for his high school sweetheart. Devastated, Laura goes to Italy in the hope of forgetting all she is leaving behind. This might not sound like a book that will lift your spirits, but once she arrives in Italy, the aura changes for good. She meets a French professor anonymously named M., and we need to put the pieces of their dysfunctional relationship together. Unexpectedly they start sleeping together and traveling all over Italy. From the mountains to the oceans, even staying in different hotel rooms, we follow them throughout the scenic settings. It will make you want to go outside, with a cold glass of iced tea, and enjoy the rays of the sun. They are constantly out enjoying the sun and express in detail how tan M's skin is. Their relationship is so loving and adventurous � this book shows the compassion two people can have for each other." Critic Jim Marquardt suggests Hilma Wolitzer's latest novel, the aptly named, Summer Reading: A Novel. "It's set on the East End, mostly in Sagaponack and Springs, two towns that are unlikely to be linked together, one an affluent enclave, the other a modest locale for working and retired people. The plot goes back and forth between them in probing the lives and loves of three women, depicting their very different worlds and their common joys and pains. Lissy Snyder dwells in splendor at her mansion on the ocean yet spends a good portion of her time brooding about her status in the Page Turners, a summer book club of wealthy women, and her feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness. She worries about the moral issues raised by the novels she reads. Her pursuit of happiness isn't helped by her husband's virulent ex-wife and their two difficult children. Retired college professor of English Literature, Angela Graves, moderates the Page Turners and encourages them to draw life lessons from the novels they read......When discussing Villette by Charlotte Bronte, Angela sees herself and Lissy in two of the characters in the novel. Young Michelle Cutty is a general purpose house-girl for Lissy. Despite being treated well, she has a resentful attitude towards Lissy and other people in her life, including her hard-working mother and fisherman boyfriend Hank. She is the stereotypical, snotty young girl you'd like to boot in the rear end. Described this way, the novel may sound like "chick-lit lite," but it is more than that. The characters are believable and three-dimensional and it's easy to get absorbed in their troubled lives, especially Lissy and Angela who tote heavy baggage from long-ago experiences. The author weaves in allusions to the books being discussed by the Page Turners and even includes a list of seven titles at the end of the novel......The denouement of the plot for the three women is somewhat abrupt and vaguely unsatisfactory after all we've invested in the characters. It's a minor reference but the wealthy women of the Page Turners supposedly go fishing on Hank's (continued on page 118) BE ST BE ST OF THE 20 10 SERVICES INCLUDE MEMORIAL DAY SPECIAL $25 OFF Any Service EXPIRES 6/30/11 Fast, Friendly, Professional Service Pete Vella CSIA Certified Technician 3921 Dan's Papers May 27, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 112 Big Summer Benefits This Weekend By Marissa Pollina Have fun and support a good cause--there are many great benefits in the Hamptons. Here are a few of the best ones happening this weekend. The Planned Parenthood Beach Party, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 29, at the Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club, 231 MidOcean Drive, Bridgehampton, will kick off a Beach Party Heat Wave to benefit Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic (PPHP). Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic believes it is the right and responsibility of every individual to make his/her own reproductive health decisions. "The association Planned Parenthood goes to schools to give students the education that they might be lacking," said Beverly Katz, Director, Marketing, Communication and Media Relations. "Our mission is to prevent unintended pregnancies, and we do this more than any other organization," Katz noted. "We want to let them be aware there is more choice in their [women's] decisions." It becomes more of a liberated approach, Katz further explained. Katz mentioned, "Ninety-six percent of Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic's health care services are preventive such as birth control, life-saving cervical cancer screenings, breast exams, pregnancy tests, STI and HIV testing and counseling services." "This is the 24th year...of a huge benefit that is really well known and a big item in the Hamptons," said Katz. "[The party] will be at a public venue. Usually it is at someone's home," said Katz. "This year will have a surf theme to it and it will be a little more fun," Katz said, "there will be surf boards, surf movies, beach wear and surf professionals in attendance." Andy Cohen, host of "Watch What Happens Live" on the Bravo network, will be the special guest at the Beach Party Heat Wave. There will be a silent auction, pop-up boutiques, cocktails and an art show and sale. For ages 35 and under a ticket costs $75/$100 at the door, otherwise the tickets are $250. All but $50 per ticket is tax deductible. For more information, contact Betsy Panagot at or call 631-240-1138. Also visit pphp.org for general questions.

Having experimented and perfected a new marinade, he volunteers to bring a bottle of it with him. Fresh off the Jitney, he pulls out the liquid from his pack, shaking and admiring its viscosity like a chemist. Throughout the day, he gives hints of its secret ingredients, often providing clues and making us guess. "It has a splash of this liquor, named after a Tennessee distiller from the 1800s." Late afternoon, the Marinator smothers the chicken and ribs and preps the grill. Others leave to see the sunset, but he declines, preferring to stay back and watch the pieces soak up his seasoning. The Hotel Holdout Accustomed to amenity, this guest is used to staying at five-star properties. He demands the finest in accommodations, activity and service, or at least a respectable B & B. Months in advance, he writes to reserve a queen-bedded room with a garden view for the weekend. I inform him that our guestroom has a doublebedded futon and is overlooking the driveway. In his follow-up correspondence, he asks about a mini-bar, an ice bucket and whether we have The Food Channel and CNN. "Our fridge is the size of a mini-bar; it has a small freezer with ice trays; we don't have a TV." "No TV?" he gasps. "How do you fall asleep?" "We read," I say. "What about a robe and slippers? Do I have to bring my own?" "We have big beach towels and flip-flops that you can use." He snarls. On Hotel Holdout's first night with us, I pass his room on the way downstairs. He has hung a Do Not Disturb sign from his door. I wouldn't dare. The Launderers The Launderers are on a mid-summer odyssey when they arrive at our place for the weekend, bringing stories of their travels and bags of laundry. "Mind if we run a load?" they ask upon arrival. "We're down to our swim trunks!" "Of course not," I say, all host, proffering up the gallon of detergent. Before I know it, one load becomes six--it turns out their ninemonth-old wears cloth nappies! I curse their eco-sensitive behavior until I am struck by the alternative: disposable dirty diapers that we would have to cart back to the city--we are weekenders who don't pay for garbage pick-up. I'll take the hiked-up water bill. Awkward Day Guest Awkward Day Guest arrives by train, car or foot. It's unclear how, but he simply materializes one Saturday afternoon. He carries a bag that could hold just a towel and swimsuit, or include toiletries and a change of clothes for the evening too. He mentions other friends in the area, but I suspect he came to see just us. Over a recent email or text or phone conversation that I can't recall, I may have said, "Call if you're ever around." But he may have taken that to mean, "Come visit whenever you like." As the sun sets, his plans become increasingly vague. He makes casual mention of meeting people for drinks, dinner, (continued on next page) s Cleaning erine' LLC ath C of The Hamptons I LOVE WHAT I DO by Lee Elliot Memories for Memorial Day.

By day, he samples lobster rolls in the area, but night is when he really gets his seafood on. One afternoon, he picks up half a dozen two-pounders at a seafood purveyor and proceeds to extol the virtues of grilling over steaming. A few hours later we gather in the kitchen to witness Lobster Lover's legendary hypnosis technique. One by one, he rubs the lobsters' foreheads, lulling them into a deep state of relaxation, then gently moves their limbs into a lobster baddha konasana (cobbler's pose), if you will, lining them up two deep, like yogis, on the kitchen counter. They remain this way, tranquil and unsuspecting, until our biggest pot is brought down for a quick par-boil. At Lobster Lover's command, the men parade the lobsters outside to the picnic table where they hack and whack the clawed creatures in preparation for the grill. Lobster insides fly in all directions, splattering their skins and soaking their shirts green. For the next two hours, we grill, we butter, and we eat. At midnight, when the lobster crackers and mini forks are down in their resting positions, I gather the towels and tees that wear evidence of the recent massacre and cry, "Last call for lobster load!" At this, Lobster Man licks his lips and tussles his beard, no doubt looking for one last piece of sweet meat. "I'm good," he says, peering down at his moist sweatshirt with pride. "And I think we have enough left over for a lobster scramble in the morning." (continued from previous page) clubbing, but takes no initiative to get in touch. "Feel free to stay for dinner," we say, sensing he hasn't eaten in a while. Halfheartedly, Awkward Day Guest agrees, acting like he's just being courteous. After dinner he makes no move for the door. At midnight, I put clean sheets on the bed. The next morning, he joins us for French toast that he eats while remarking he should save his appetite for brunch with someone A and someone B. After finishing his stack of battered bread, he takes a long sip of coffee and inquires if he could catch a ride back. The Fixers Despite being close friends, The Fixers work hard for their room and board, blowing through my to-do list and solving things I have yet to identify as problems. They tackle everything from rewiring an old floor lamp previously headed for the dump (her), to disabling the dead-awakening drier buzzer (him), to re-stoning a path to the outdoor shower (her), to setting up a projector in the barn for al fresco movie viewing (him). When time permits, the Fixers frequent yard sales to fill in the gaps in our eclectic furnishings. "We've come across an old set of school chairs that I think will work with your farm stand table, presuming we take a handsaw to the legs," she calls to inform me early one morning while I am still in bed. "I can paint the seats glossy red to match the rattan chairs I restrung for you last week. If we can get the seller down to $60, should we do it?" The Lobster Lover and Jane Krakowski are just a few of the famous faces you may spot in your spin session. SoulCycle has expanded nationwide with eight studios in New York City, Miami, Westchester, Los Angeles in the fall, future plans to open in Southampton and, this Memorial Day weekend, a brand new East Hampton Village location that will remain open year-round. The loft-like 2,100 square foot studio will feature 60 bikes, a fitness apparel boutique, a juice bar packed with fresh, healthy treats made with agave from Anke's Fit Bakery and a private 45-spot parking lot. Both the new East Hampton and Bridgehampton locations will be celebrating all weekend, dishing out Anke's complimentary baked goodies, juices from the Juicy Naam, fresh coconut water, temporary tattoos, custom hair feathers, free gear and more! Start riding this weekend, so you'll be super ready to take on the SoulCycle Friday Night Party Rides starting July 1. They will feature a 60-minute class, set to live music (bongos), handpicked D.J.s, an `80s cover band, live reggae or different musical themes featuring GaGa or Rihanna. Post workout you can cool down with "healthy" cocktails al fresco.

One of them, the greatly envied Ardith, has a notorious fling with a restaurateur that ends with him being murdered by his wife, yet she takes her place again in Hampton society. Are we prudish to think she might have been shunned, at least for a little while? But there are enough pleasures in the book to make it worthwhile." Jim Marquardt also suggests Whacked, a novel by Jules Asner. "If you've ever yearned to live in L.A., work in TV and film and hobnob with all the celebs, this book will cure that yearning and make you happy to dwell anywhere else......The characters in Whacked are neurotic or worse, living in a constant state of anxiety, and seeking someone or something that will make them happy. Asner is the wife of Steven Soderbergh, a successful movie director, so we assume she knows of what she speaks......(She) paints a grim picture of a dysfunctional community inhabited by dysfunctional people who spend their time chasing mammon and sex. Since the plot revolves around and is narrated by Dani Hale, a writer for the hot TV series "Flesh and Bone," we are privy to all her problems, which come mainly from her pursuit of a lasting relationship and marriage. But the guys she dates are seriously flawed in one way or other, and her hopes are regularly dashed......We know the future because Asner uses the expedient device of a look-forward epilogue where everything is explained and everything comes out neatly for our girl......Dani lands creative success, the big house, and marriage to Rich Pisani, an ex L.A. cop working as a tech advisor for the show..." Marquardt goes on to reveal an unexpected crime with little build-up of suspense. Spoiler alert: Dani seems to become a psychopath overnight! "Since `Flesh and Bone' involves forensic pathology," says Marquardt, "we are treated to a review of Marilyn Monroe's death by apparent suicide, as well as scenes at the morgue as Dani gathers material for her script......Do these things really happen in Hollywood? One minor character crushes Viagra into her boyfriend's guacamole to rev him up. David says to Dani after learning she had had a nose job, "I thought you were factory!" When Chloe Johnson, the rising star of the TV show is murdered, the director worries most about dropping behind his shooting schedule. Even Dani reacts to such callousness, remarking "Ya gotta love Hollywood."

Whether you call it vin gris, ros�, blush or some proprietary name � ros� is back and in a big way on Long Island. And I couldn't be happier. Personally, I love ros� because no other wine type or style, red or white, offers so many options and so much versatility at the table. From seafood to steak � and every food in between � there is a local ros� that will pair beautifully. Note: We're not talking about sweet ros� here � white zinfandel from the west coast isn't nearly as versatile, though it's certainly popular. Dry ros� can even bridge the gap between white wine and red, providing a gateway to wine exploration. Well-made ros� combines the complexity and structure of red wine with the refreshing, thirstquenching qualities of whites. To help celebrate local ros�, the Long Island Wine Council (LIWC) has deemed May "Run for the Roses" month. Throughout May wineries across Long Island will offer specials and discounts on their ros� wines. It's the perfect opportunity to get out and taste the local ros� bounty � even if the $1 per bottle of ros�� sold that was previously donated to charity is now going to the LIWC. You'll find ros� at just about every local winery and much of it is good. Some is very good. I haven't tasted all of the newly released 2010s yet, but here are some of the best that have crossed my tasting table so far, plus a list of some of the consistently best pink drinks. Bedell Cellars 2010 Taste Ros� ($18) replaces the popular Domaine CC Ros� in the Bedell/Corey Creek lineup and is dominated by merlot (62%) with cabernet franc (27%), syrah (7%) and petit verdot (4%) � all intended for ros�� rather than saignee, whole-cluster pressed and fermented with ambient yeast. The nose bursts with a distinct passion fruitmeets-guava aroma with notes of peach, strawberry, blood orange and a touch of earthy spice and sage. On the dry, medium-bodied palate the flavors lean a bit more towards red fruit � particularly strawberry and red raspberry � with a dose of passion fruit and blood orange. In the background, there is a nice herbal component of some peppery spice. Channing Daughters Winery 2010 Rosato di Refosco ($20): Channing Daughters is the only local winery to grow the Northern Italian grape Refosco and it leads to this unique ros� that stands outs. Very brambly with red raspberry and wild strawberry character, there is a definite black currant note on the palate. Medium bodied with a certain exotic quality, the acidity is juicy and citrusy. A must-try ros�. Roaonke Vineyards 2010 De Rosa ($18): It seems like this ros� changes styles every year or so, and this release is no exception. Drier and fuller bodied that some previous years, this blend of red grapes and chardonnay shows a m�lange of fruit � everything from peach to passion fruit to strawberry to grapefruit to kiwi. It's dry but ripe with some weight on the palate that is well balanced by integrated acidity. Shinn Estate Vineyards 2010 Rose ($17): Shinn always produces a bolder style of ros� � one suited for burgers and even steaks. Made with merlot (75%) and cabernet franc (25%), this one smells like red wine with berry fruit, plum and classic Long Island earthiness. Intensely flavored with lots of ripe red fruit and sweet herb edges. Your next burger really will thank you.

What follows is an actual verbal exchange that I engaged in one evening: "Good evening, may I assist you in a wine selection?" says the Sommelier. "Yes, I would like a French Prosecco," says the well-dressed female diner. "I'm sorry we do not have Prosecco, we do have our own local Sparkling Wine we label as Isle," explains the Sommelier. "No, I don't want Sparkling Wine, I will have a glass of French Champagne instead," says the diner. Sommelier then explains, "We offer only award-winning North Fork of Long Island, Comtesse Th�r�se wine." The diner then spat, "Fine, I will have a glass of Pinot Grigio!" Sommelier replies, "I'm sorry we do not have Pinot Grigio." "Then WHAT do you have?!" says the diner clearly annoyed. "Please take a look at our Comtesse Th�r�se wine list," Sommelier politely suggests. Diner looks at page 2 of our menu, "If you are sooo local why do you have wine from Hungary and Russia?" Sommelier then stifles a laugh and explains, "We use Hungarian, Russian in addition to French, oak barrels to ferment and age our wines." "Hmmm, you have many Merlots, I don't like dry wine, is this Russian Merlot dry?" Diner is now visibly frustrated with the Sommelier. Mind you this exchange is during the height of service With a visible roll of her eyes, diner says, "fine, I will have the scallop special." Sommelier replies, "Wonderful, we have the perfect wine to complement that dish." Pan-seared scallops made in a curry and sauternes reduction infused with saffron served with herbed basmati rice and sprinkled with fresh pomegranates. A seasoned Sommelier can almost predict a person's palate. "Here you go, try this, a taste of our `08 Blanc de Noir, off-dry 1.5% residual sugar, salmon in color and has a nose of full ripe peaches." After the diner took her first sample sip she replied, "WOW, this is really good, why didn't you just tell me about this wine in the first place?!!" Sommelier at this point wanted to use the corkscrew in her pocket to drill a hole in her head to release the sheer frustration of dealing with these fabulous diners. Lesson being: your Sommelier is there to assist you in your wine selection, we want you to enjoy a fine dining experience, complementing your food choice with the perfect wine. "Trust your Sommelier, we are there to insure you will enjoy a `fine DINING experience,' not to have a wine DUELING experience."

Prior to that her food experiences were Hamburger Helper, Hi-C, frozen veggies in a bag and Pop Tarts.

From the living room and the bedrooms it has a beautiful view of Shelter Island's Menantic Creek at its widest point. It's really more like a lake than a creek. The house is perched on a little rise so it looks down over the water, our dock, and other houses with their docks and boats. The only problem is that there is no porch or patio where you can enjoy sitting and looking at the water. There's not even a back door...you have to go out one of the two front doors and clear around to the backyard to take advantage of the waterfront part of the property. It's awkward. And since it's a rental, we're not about to build a screened-in porch or punch out a door from the living room to the backyard. So what to do? We decided to create an "outdoor living/dining room" on the generous lawn at the rear of the house using a combination of found objects and new pieces from area outdoor stores. So what if the barbeque grill is off the kitchen in the front? We'll just have to walk the food on trays down the slate path that leads around the house to the back. Our outdoor room will be temporary and highly portable � kind of a pop-up shop of a room; anything we invest in we should be able to take with us when we move on. The redwood lawn furniture set left behind by our landlord is in fairly good shape. It just needs a big can of redwood stain and a little sweat equity on my part. Finding replacement cushions for it, however, has proved to be a little more difficult (who knew those old redwood sets are not standard sizes?). After several false starts at the big box stores, I ended up at Kaufman Allied in Riverhead. I found a faux Tommy Bahama print in a green, red and tan combo that won't show the dirt. Two chairs and one chaise later, I have a matching set, along with coordinating striped cushions for our old green wooden rockers. (All these cushions ate up the lion's share of my budget...and since we can't take the redwood with us, I'll have to find a set that fits the cushions at a garage sale some day!) We also inherited a round redwood picnic table with an umbrella hole, but � you guessed it � no umbrella, so I am on my way to Patio.com in Southampton for a perfect fit (it must be green). The property also came with one of those odd iron filigree settee and chair sets that are all over the East End. I can spray the pieces white and park them under a shade tree. The dock still cries out for two colorful Adirondack chairs, and the men in my family are lobbying for one of those meshed-in gazebos for bug-free dining (I'm not wild about that idea, but I will keep an open mind). So while I am not quite finished with my furniture shopping for my outdoor room, I couldn't resist the best part: accessorizing. (I am reminded of that line from Steel Magnolias, "The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize!") I bought some decorative trays, sophisticated-yetplastic dinnerware, new placemats and matching napkins, and lots of citronella candles. I found everything at Hildreth's Home Goods in East Hampton in a color scheme to match my revamped redwood. We're all set for our first barbeque. Hello summer!

Luckily, thanks to Fred DeVito, the co-founder of Exhale's Core Fusion, that doesn't mean we have to hit the beach with extra jiggle bulging from our Pucci two-piece. DeVito has developed a slew of classes that target multiple muscle groups at once allowing for major calorie burn, in a short amount of time. I spoke with DeVito about how to stay fit while on vacation, his go-to Hampton eateries, the biggest diet mistakes people make, and more... Q. Do you have any suggestions for losing those last few pounds standing between us and our swimwear? A. The game plan for quick weight loss and improved muscle tone is to reduce calories while sustaining nutrition and regular exercise. A good way to do this is by combining a juice cleanse with a daily core barre workout like Core Fusion. (The Core Barre method uses the ballet barre to target abs, tone the thighs and tighten the arms.) Q. What's the biggest diet mistake people make? A. They skip meals, which causes the metabolism to slow down and with it calorie consumption slows down as well. I suggest eating five small meals a day and doing strength training and core exercises to maximize your fitness potential. Q. How can we stay fit while on vacation? A. Honestly you should use the Core Fusion DVD series. The reason I say this is because you can do these DVDs anywhere and you don't need equipment. Also, walk with family members or friends and challenge each other to take the lead and set a pace, and if you have a pool there are a number of aqua exercises you can do to tone your muscles and stabilize your joints. That aside, try to stay away from the salt and sugar and don't take a mini bar key when offered! Q. What are your go-to eateries in the Hamptons? A. My secret spot for the best pasta fagioli in the Hamptons is The Pizza Place in Bridgehampton. My favorite night to go there is Monday nights, when I sit in on string bass for the Jazz Jam Sessions! I also love Estia's Little Kitchen on the Sag Harbor Turnpike. Q. When you're not teaching Core Fusion, do you partake in other physical activities? A. I participate in all of our signature Core Fusion classes � Cardio, Sport, Yoga and Boot � for my fitness and then I like to bike, swim, garden, and beach walk for my recreational movement experiences. Q. What are your favorite post and pre-workout snacks? A. Before class, I like a light breakfast such as peanut butter on toast, oatmeal, smoothies or a scrambled egg. After class I love a Blue Print Cleanse Green Juice. Great energy food! Q. Any favorite fitness apparel brands? A. I exclusively wear Anatomie these days for exercise. They use the most comfortable clothing with stretch fabric and I can use them for all my fitness needs. As for shoes, I like the Zems that we wear for Core Fusion classes and recently discovered Vibran FiveFingers shoes! Exhale Bridgehampton, 2415 Main Street, Bridgehampton, NY, (631) 537-8150.

In this column she will share what she finds and friends she meets along the journey. With the opening of the Thrift Shop, a venue filled with treasures came alive. Animal lovers of all kinds went into their attics, created extra closet space, asked her friends and found things that needed a new home. The result is a store waiting for passersby to come in and find picks of their own! Before Bella heads out to roll in the sand and chase sticks into the sea, she often spends Saturday mornings hanging out with Jack and Joe, the store directors. Last week, she got a pet from the Shafiroff daughters, Liz and Blank, along with Charles McConnell. They brought in a few items to donate to the shop. Also, they were planning their Junior Committee for the Unconditional Love Benefit on July 16. One of Bella's favorite people passed by her, on her morning walk, around Lake Agawam. That person was Ann Fletcher. Ann was accompanied by her beloved rescue Greyhound, Miss Tulip. They will be lead walkers in PAWS across the Hamptons coming up on June 11. Ann is an irresistible person. Her love of animals, especially rescue animals, makes anyone's heart sing. To meet Ann and Miss Tulip, and to see the love between them (their eyes tell it all), makes Bella and me smile. So, as Bella is now panting and telling me she needs a break from dictating, not to mention her well-deserved swim, we are off to the beach.

Most important, she is extremely social and charitable. Her first pick is always to go swimming at the beach. However, she never forgets her role as spokes-dog for the Southampton Animal Shelter. Over the winter, The Southampton Animal Shelter opened a Thrift Shop on Jobs Lane. Bella attended the opening and could not resist lending a paw. Bella has a vast array of friends. These friends include both animals and people. With that being said, she thought it would be a magnificent idea to give back to the community and shelter. She decided to act as their spokes-dog to spread the word.
