The Hamptons Town Council met last week to discuss new ways of raising money. They are always considering new ways, but this idea was special. Why not, since we are starting a new year, start completely fresh in the Hamptons by declaring all the property ownership deeds null and void and putting all the plots up for auction? Everybody would have to buy their own properties, or other properties, again. There is lots of money around, and the Hamptons is so desirable. Surely, bidding wars would break out. There was unanimous support for this proposal. The nulling and voiding is proposed for February 1. The auction, March 1. The Council will hold a public hearing on Wednesday at 4 p.m. and then hold a final vote the week after. -- DR 5.

Nancy Atlas’s first Fireside Session at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor last Friday sold out and was a smash hit! Drummer Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers was her redhot guest. See photos on “Page 27,” which is on page 11 this week. This Friday, Jan. 10, Atlas will be joined onstage by Andy Aledort, guitarist extraordinaire and Dickey Betts sideman. If you’re luck enough to get tickets, you’ll also see Dan’s Papers own Dan Koontz on organ, with his signature Leslie speaker. Read more on page 20.
Hamptonite Billy Joel played Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on New Year’s Eve. With more than 18,000 attendees, it was the arena’s biggest show yet. A portion of the concert was also televised during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. Joel’s monthly residency at Billy Joel New York’s Madison Square Garden begins Jan. 27. Joel just made his second large donation in the form of a piano to Stony Brook University. Through his Joel Foundation, which provides music scholarships, gifts and endowments to institutions up and down the East Coast, he gave the university’s music department a premier concert piano—a $250,000 Bosendorfer Imperial grand piano. Stony Brook says it is considered the RollsRoyce of pianos. East Hampton’s Sean “Diddy” Combs and Ciroc recently raised $1.5 million for the vodka company’s anti-drinking-and-driving campaign. Combs is expanding his reach in the liquor market. And Combs, whose Ciroc Vodka is a $100 million franchise, recently partnered with DeLeon Tequila. The high-end alcohol sells for $140 to $825 a bottle. South Forkers Christie Brinkley and daughter Sailor rang in New Year’s at Sag Harbor resident Donna Karan’s celebrity-packed bash in Turks and Caicos’ Parrot Cay. Brinkley posted pictures of the pair having fun with Jimmy Fallon on Instagram. Sailor is following in her mother’s footsteps with a new Ralph Lauren modeling gig. Sailor posted a picture of herself posing for the fashion designer’s Denim & Supply line on Twitter last week.

“Along with the New York Subway System, Hamptons Subway is the only underground transit system in the State of New York.”
The H amptons Subway Newsletter By DAn rattiner
Week of January 10–16, 2014 Riders this past week: 6,322 Rider miles this past week: 91,712 DOWN IN THE TUBE Demi Moore was seen on the subway going from Quogue to Southampton on Tuesday. Michael Bloomberg was seen carrying cardboard boxes on the subway between downtown Southampton and Shinnecock on Friday. Jon Bon Jovi came down the escalator to the Bridgehampton platform on Monday but then looked at his watch and went back the up escalator. SNOW VOLUNTEERS Few people are aware of this, but Hampton Subway has an active volunteer organization that removes snow anytime it falls into our subways. Founded in 2008 after a severe storm plugged many of the subway entrances with snow, making them impassable, the men and women of HSSV live throughout our community and spring into action at the first snowflake, alerted by specially modified marine radios
tuned to Channel 81 at their homes and businesses. The alarm sounds—a series of whooping noises—and the volunteers leap up wherever they are to gather their snow shovels and brooms and then race to their pre-assigned subway stations to get the job done. It is because of these volunteers that all subway stairs, platforms and tunnels are kept snow-free and we salute them. WEDNESDAY Last Wednesday, on a subway car between East Hampton and Wainscott, the unthinkable happened. According to witnesses, a man in a business suit got up and demanded watches, wallets and jewelry from everyone in his subway car. Everyone complied. When the train stopped in Wainscott, the man ran from the train, but according to more witnesses, another man in a business suit yelled “stop,” and jumped off the train after him and tackled him on the platform. They struggled, the first man got away, ran back to the train to get back on at the last minute, but when the sliding doors closed just before he got there, he leaped up the side and onto the roof, to be followed up by the second man. Witnesses
say the two men fought further up there, a gun was involved, but then the train headed out and into the tunnel toward Sagaponack. Subway police were alerted and immediately called the motorman and the token clerk, told them what happened, and instructed the motorman to not stop in Sagaponack, inform the passengers over the PA, and then just keep on going until hearing further word. Further down, only occasional grunts or shouts came from up top, and the train raced through Sagaponack and Bridgehampton, until finally, in the tunnel between Bridgehampton and Water Mill, after several thumps were heard as if the men had hit the overhead lights, there was nothing. The motorman stopped at Southampton, but when he did, the two men leaped down all disheveled and bloody, raced across the platform, jumped the turnstiles and ran up the down escalators to the street and disappeared. Police are investigating. BIRTHDAY Happy birthday to Subway bookkeeper John Mabel. All employees are welcome to attend the party in the company cafeteria at noon Friday. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE If you know the identity of the two men involved in the big fight on the subway last Wednesday, please call me direct. One is a hero, the other a villain, and we need to sort this out. Nothing like this has ever happened before on the subway system and will never happen again. All wallets, jewelry and watches have been gathered up from the tracks and can be picked up at our offices on Ponquogue Avenue in Hampton Bays.

Epidemic Of Sober Drivers A police checkpoint set up along the highway this past week stopped in excess of 200 drivers making their way east. Among these 200 drivers, fully 196 were found to be “unimpaired” by alcohol or drugs. Given that the checkpoint was operating between the hours of 11 p.m. and 4 a.m., local officials have become alarmed by what would appear to be a local outbreak of safe, sober driving at just the time of night when they would expect large numbers of drunken motorists. While some worry that this sobriety may be a trend, others point out that “it’s the off-season,” and that we can expect a robust return of impaired driving come spring. Meanwhile, jail cells will likely be operating below capacity for the foreseeable future. Conspiracy Of Deer East End police forces broke up what they describe as a “full-blown anti-human conspiracy” that was allegedly being hatched among the burgeoning deer population of the area. In a wide-ranging investigation that involved dressing several pairs of lawenforcement officers up as white-tailed deer in order to infiltrate clandestine meetings, police say they uncovered a plot that was to have involved a massive number of deer performing kamikaze missions against civilian motorists. Apparently, many test-runs of this procedure had already been enacted. While police can’t be sure what the deer hoped to accomplish with these attacks, they assure the public that they have issued cease and desist orders to the deer and that motorists should alert them if any deer violate the terms of these agreements. McGumbus’S New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Old Man McGumbus, 103, WWII veteran and self-described “party animal,” had Shelter Island jumping on New Year’s Eve. McGumbus, popularly known as “the world’s oldest old guy,” had secretly been planning festivities for months. At 4 p.m. on December 31, he wheeled his trusty old Victrola to the center of town and began “spinning the oldies and cuttin’ a rug”— which for him apparently meant repeatedly playing “Skip To My Lou” while forcibly twerking with unsuspecting females who happened to pass by. Nightfall found McGumbus launching improvised fireworks made from his secret cache of unexploded ordnance, rockets that seemed rigged to detonate on contact with the ground. Police are continuing to investigate and account for any damage to property. Finally, at 10 p.m., McGumbus yelled “Let’s just drop the damn ball.” He thereupon hoisted a glittering ball, fashioned from a colorful assortment of empty beer bottles held together with string and caulk, up the village flagpole and let it drop freely to the ground. With that, he declared it officially “2014, and I ain’t dead yet!” Read more Hamptons Police Blotter and get exclusive Old Man McGumbus updates at DansPapers.com.

Drone (Continued from previous page) there was no package in sight. It did take the box with the wrong size. But then, coming back in, we saw that the fire in our fireplace had flared up. It was a much bigger fire. We got the extinguisher, put the fire out, and we found the problem. Apparently, your drone dropped the replacement package down our chimney.” “I apologize for that. But you got the merchandise? It was all right?” “It’s mostly burned. We need a new one.” “I apologize for that. Are you saying the merchandise was defective?” “No.” “Then what are you saying?

But then another drone came, and when we tried to pick it up, it fired a laser at us. It hit our landscaping, a bush, and set it on fire. We ran back in and slammed the door.” “Could you please speak more clearly? I am a computer who understands complete sentences.” “Felicia. It set a bush on fire.” “If you have a fire, you should put it out.” “We did. We got an extinguisher and ran back out and put it out. Then we ran back in and called you.” “I apologize for this inconvenience. So you have the package?” “No. It’s still out there.” “Is there a reason you are calling me? I am a computer that can answer complete sentences.” “Wait.” (Silence). “The package is gone.” “You say the package is gone?” “Yes. It was there before. It’s been stolen.” “This is a ‘merchandise stolen’ case. I apologize for that. Please take this new order number: X41252K. Another package will be out on your doormat in front of your
house by 3 p.m.” “Do you want to know about the other drone? It was blue. Yours are yellow.” “Once again I apologize. Is there anything else I can help you with today?” January 3. 3 p.m. “Hello, this is Amazon’s help line. I am a computer that can understand complete sentences. May I have your name? Mine is Felicia.” “Alice. X41252K. It’s three o’clock. We can’t go out front.” “I apologize for that. My records show that your replacement product X41252K was delivered.” “It’s out there. We can see it out the window. But there’s a shooting war going on out there. There’s yellow and blue drones shooting at one another up in the sky. It’s terrible.” “Blue drones. I apologize for that. There are blue drones from Google in your sector. They are unauthorized. Dial 911.” “I already did that, just before I called you.” “I apologize for this inconvenience. The situation will be taken care of shortly. We are having difficulty…stay in your homes.” (Sounds of explosions over the telephone). “Hello, Felicia? Are you there?” “I am a computer that understands complete…” “Felicia?” “Once again, I apologize. Stay in your homes. The situation will be taken care of shortly. May I have your name? Mine is Felicia.”

The End of the World The End of a Man Who Repeatedly Predicted the End of the World By Dan Rattiner
powerful man who predicted the end of the world repeatedly over a 30-year period to no good effect died last month in California at the age of 92. He was Harold Camping, and he got a good-sized obituary in The New York Times because of his astounding failures. Truly, I think, there has never been such a failed announcement on such a big scale ever before. To get out his message that the end of the world would come on May 21, 2011, he spent tens of millions of dollars over three years buying billboard space, issuing the warning to his millions of followers on radio, giving TV interviews and buying newspaper advertising around the world, all urging people to declare for God and save themselves before it was too late. Some say that Harold Camping was a big fake just trying to make money. But he had made his millions in the construction business earlier on. He didn’t need more money. In retirement—he retired from business early—he had become a charismatic interdenominational religious leader with a solid grounding in the Bible and a determination to convert others. And from a careful reading of the Bible, he had figured out back in 2008 that May 21, 2011 would be Judgment Day. He, Harold Camping, was issuing the fair warning. It was three years’ notice. God would, amidst all the fire and brimstone
on Judgment Day as 7 billion people passed on, allow all those good souls who believed in him or those who had repented and converted to a belief in him, even if it was just at the last minute, a safe refuge in the Kingdom of Heaven with all the other good people for ever and ever. Everybody else would suffer all the fires of hell. For these three years, this was his message. As he said, he could get out this message to some nonbelievers, but he could not get it out all over the world to everybody. To make that happen, he asked his followers to contribute as much as they could so he could buy as many commercials and advertisements and billboards as he could. For that reason, people opened their wallets to help him. I have little doubt that even you, dear reader, remembered this time. Certainly I do. Damned to Hell? I have to make this choice? This was a difficult thing to have to decide. I mentioned this was not the first time that Harold Camping forecast the end of the world. Apparently he studied the Bible and the vast numerology contained within it as a lifetime pursuit. He had made mathematical calculations. According to the Times, he had first predicted various doomsdays in the 1970s, but they got little attention. His first prediction that the public really noted was for an end of the world on May 21, 1988. When that didn’t happen, he worked further with
I think that May 21, 2011— particularly closing in on midnight that evening—must really have been tough on Harold Camping. his mathematical calculations and wound up writing a book called 1994?, in which he gave numerous dates in September of 1994 that the world would end. Exactly when that month, however, he was not sure. Then that date passed. He was, however, sure of his calculations back in 2008 about the new date of May 21, 2011, and indeed many people took him very seriously as the date came closer and closer. Many converted. Many sold everything they owned. A woman in Palmdale, California stabbed her two daughters, age 14 and 11, and then slit her own throat with a box cutter. Mercifully, all three survived. In the Far East, when a huge earthquake and tsunami hit the region, a man in Taiwan, thinking this was the beginning of the end, jumped out a window to his death. Another man died trying to swim across a lake in Antioch, California to reach God. I think that May 21, 2011—particularly closing in on midnight that evening—must really have been tough on Harold Camping. After midnight, crowds went out and (Continued on next page)

World (Continued from previous page) But then October 21 came and went. And at that point, he knew he was really, really wrong. Should he have made predictions in the first place? trashed his radio studio in Oakland. In the days that followed, protesters inundated the FCC, demanding that Camping’s broadcasting license be revoked. They demanded he be arrested for being a false prophet, for misleading the public, for causing a riot. Camping himself went into seclusion. The earth was still under his feet, the sky was still blue above. He thought two things. One
was that since everything was still here, he’d obviously made a mistake. Two was that he owed everybody an apology for his mistake. He would soon make such an apology, but first he wanted to figure out what happened. Camping went back to the Bible to see what signs and signals he had missed. Everything had to be there. It was just something he had once again interpreted incorrectly. What he came up with a few days later was that he had made certain mathematical mistakes. The real date when the universe would be consumed in brimstone flood and fire was five months hence, on October 21. It was just that Judgment Day had been May 21. The decisions about who gets into heaven and who gets into hell were now decided. It was a done

deal, and so there was no further point in giving grand publicity to the fact that the real end of everything was now October 21. Why bother? The books were closed. And so, quietly, Camping waited. He also quietly apologized for the mistake about the wrong date over the airways. And further, he also said there was no point in reaching out to anyone else about the new date because the book was closed. No matter what anybody did, there was no changing that. After that, he suffered a minor stroke. He was 90 years old and needed, and got, medical attention. What he thought of the fact that he had had a stroke, I do not know, and neither does the Times, apparently. But his mind stayed clear. And, in several brief interviews he allowed, he stood by October 21. But then October 21 came and went. And at that point, he knew he was really, really wrong, and furthermore, he was probably wrong to have made any predictions about it all in the first place. He was sorry he did. He described what he had done as a “sin” for which he would atone. And he said he would never, ever again make any predictions about the End of the World. “I really am beginning to think,” he said, “as I restudied these matters that there’s going to be no big display of any kind. The end is going to come very, very quietly.” But he did have one final thought. And I think, here at the end it must have brightened his day. “My incorrect and sinful statement allowed God to get the attention of a great many people who otherwise would not have paid attention,” he said. He was a believer, and I am sure that today, a month after his passing, he is upstairs in the Kingdom of God looking down at us, thinking that now as the end is quietly approaching for us all, he may have made a difference in how many got accepted into heaven rather than go down to Hell prior to May 21. His good works might have affected millions.

Two Lions Remain Lions Eat Deer, Return to South Africa, But Two Not Rounded Up By Dan Rattiner
ll the deer in the Hamptons, which until now have caused so much trouble running into cars, eating gardens and shrubbery and spreading Lyme disease, are now gone, eaten in a “natural” way by the African lions imported from South Africa to do the deed. But now there seems to be what might be a troublesome glitch in the situation. As everyone knows, the 26 lions, all supposedly males, were flown to East Hampton by cargo plane in mid-December by billionaire Hans Van der Klerk, a resident of South Africa, who then housed them in his 17 -car garage at his oceanfront Bridgehampton estate. There his workers threw raw meat into the garage every day until finally, this past Monday, he let them out two by two into rented limousines which took them to various woods all around the Hamptons. The deer feast, for that is what it was, was supposed to last for 10 days during which time, with all the local residents staying indoors, these ferocious beasts would do their job. After that time, with their stomachs distended and with them lying asleep and snoring by the roadsides, they would be rounded up by handlers and flown back to South Africa The feast did not last 10 days, however. It was all over by Tuesday at noon. And so, with the job done “as Mother Nature might have done it”
in just 28 hours, there was no further problem and the local residents were able to come out very early. As Mr. Van der Klerk said when, at his own expense, he brought them here, the planned hunt by Department of Agriculture sharpshooters scheduled for February, should not be necessary. It was an interference with Mother Nature, an unnecessary taxpayer expense, and with the high-powered rifles they used a dangerous way to kill 3,000 deer. He brought the lions at his own expense. And the job is done. Except that now we have received word from South Africa that when the plane with the lions arrived at the Transvaal International Airport, only 24 lions got off the plane, not 26.
“There is only the remote possible danger from these lions. They are full of deer meat. We don’t even know for sure that they’re here.” “I received word in a phone call directly from Hans Van der Klerk himself,” said Hamptons Mayor James Hamilton at his latest press conference in front of Town Hall this morning. “This is the first time I have talked to him directly. In the past he has had aides speak to me. So I knew it must be important. He did seem concerned.”
“No one should panic,” the mayor continued. “We cannot completely confirm that the two lions that did not arrive in South Africa are still here. It is possible they escaped during the unloading in the Transvaal, or perhaps they slipped open the cargo door over the Atlantic and two accidentally fell into the ocean.” There is some evidence that these two lions are still here, however. According to the mayor, the loading of the lions onto the airplane at East Hampton Airport involved getting the beasts to run down a narrow chute from the limousines that were used to round them up— two by two—go across the tarmac and then up into the cargo plane, hurried along the path by a team of ranch hands from the Deep Hollow Ranch in Montauk waving their hats and shouting “Hi-Yah!” But it was dark. And the next day, Wednesday, long after the cargo plane had left, airport employees noticed two bloody computer chips on the tarmac and brought them into the airport manager’s office. Nobody thought anything of it at the time, but when it was learned that only 24 lions got off the plane, this became a concern. Aides of Van der Klerk went to the airport and examined the chips today, Thursday morning, and indeed they have confirmed that they were identical to those used in the lions that had been brought here. “These are very high tech chips,” said the mayor. “They send out (Continued on page 20)

Top 14 “East Endy” Things on My 2014 To-Do List
s a longtime year-rounder I sometimes forget what a great place the East End is to visit. Suffolk County promotes our beaches, wineries, historic villages and golf courses to tourists. What we “locals” know is that another perk of life on the East End is the fabulous people, both the regulars and our “fair weather neighbors.” The sights and culture truly offer something for every taste. I’m committed to getting back in the swing—or the “swim” of things in 2014 and here’s how I’ll do it:
Life’s a beach, on the East End
1. Go to the beach—any beach Many East Enders rarely soak up the rays seaside. It’s a classic case of the shoemaker’s children going barefoot. We take it for granted that the coast will always be there and that we’ll get there eventually, but reality hits—all summer we’re super busy with work, and in the winter it’s pretty darned cold. Last year I made it to Havens Beach (I can almost hit it with a stone from my house.) a whopping twice for an evening stroll with my husband. This year I’m going there in the light of day.
3. It takes a village I shall re-read Dorothy Zaykowski’s Sag Harbor, The Story of an American Beauty this year. I live in the village; I remember that it has a fascinating history—but not many of the details. I will grow to appreciate it all the more and be prepped to impress visiting friends and family with…the top 14 reasons Sag Harbor used to be called “the Unhampton.” And I’m going to read Melville’s Moby Dick. Which is to say, I’m going to read all the words that surround his reference to Sag Harbor as “Sin City.”
7. South of the Highway I’ll explore Wainscott—not the Wainscott we all know along Montauk Highway where the Seafood Shop and Breadzilla are, though that does beckon. I’m headed to the interior to discover Wainscott’s original main street. While there I will accost a passerby and ask him or her to tell me where he or she lives. I need to know if locals actually pronounce it “Wayneskit.”
2. Red or white? Yes, please. This year I’m not just going to visit some local wineries; I plan to invest in local wine—by the case. More and more of my friends are joining the Wölffer Estate Wine Club. That could be the one for me, I’m a fan, but I’ll check out the North Fork, too. Love that North Fork experience.
6. Beyond the beach I’m not just going to go to the beach and picnic. I shall make my own local sea salt from ocean water. Why buy salt? The natives didn’t. Amagansett Sea Salt makes it look so sexy. After sea salt I’m going to start making my own beer and hard cider and vinegars. Hmm, I’ll have to do this late in the year— otherwise I might never leave the house.
Moby got your dinghy?
9. Now Open I’m going to take a studio tour—any studio tour—on the East End. Maybe a highly organized, daylong fundraiser of an event or maybe just one rum- Montauk Point Lighthouse soaked evening with a new artist friend. I crave original, visual stimulation. Is that a Talking Heads song lyric or just the curator inside my head? Maybe I’ll discover the next Eric Fischl. If I do, you can read all about it in Dan’s. 10. Light the lights! I will see every production at Bay Street Theatre this summer. Confession: Last year I missed one. Conclusion: That’s pathetic! I love live theatre and I live right there! Solution: Don’t miss anything at Guild Hall either! 11. Cheers! I meet a lot of famous people out here. Some of them I greatly admire, and I’d love to chat with them at length. This year I’m going to invite some of them to dinner. What have I got to lose? Gael Greene likes my cooking. So what if I don’t live in a mega McMansion— most people don’t. I can decant wine—or seltzer. Nicholas Chowske
5. Duck! Who doesn’t love the Big Duck in Flanders? No one! This is the very structure that coined “duck” as an architectural term. You can build structures in the shapes of hamburgers or derby hats—but they’re all called “ducks.” And if that isn’t exciting enough to lure you in—they sell cool patches inside that depict the Big Duck, which you can sew onto your jeans jacket. The last time I was there I bought my son a patch—can’t imagine why he didn’t take that jacket to college. Maybe I should mail it to him.
seasonal produce, recipes and gossip ever.
4. Thank you, Mr. President. I’m going to climb the Montauk Point Lighthouse—on the inside, relax. I’ve done it once before. It was transcendently awesome. George Washington had the lighthouse erected to save ships, but maybe he also knew that it would provide a cardio workout and a breathtaking panoramic view for generations to come.
By STACY DERMONT
8. Down on the farm Hold onto your straw hats, I’m going to visit every farmers market on the East End. It makes sense to shop at your most local market; it’s the right thing to do. I’m going to be bad, really bad, and hit every one at least once. Sure I’ll continue to shop at Sag Harbor’s every Saturday but also Greenport, Shelter Island, Springs and Westhampton Beach at some point. Montauk of a Thursday. East Hampton and Hayground on a special Friday and Southampton come a certain Sunday—it will not be my “day of rest.” I shall gather the best of the best
12. Everything old… I’m going to visit a bunch of East End museums. I went to them all when East End history was new to me—except for the East End Seaport Museum in Greenport, so I’ll start there. I wonder if they have a cool patch for my son’s jeans jacket. 13. Bringing up my rear I shall run—okay, mostly walk—a 5K for charity. There are tons of these races out here, all for great causes. (I will not be participating in any icy plunges until the year that Global Warming does away with the “icy” aspect. Momma didn’t raise no fools.) 14. Self-titled Last but never least, the #14 dosa at the Hampton Chutney Company in Amagansett. I will get one and face plant. Butternut squash, goat cheese and beets! It’s the best dosa no matter which of the chutneys you choose to accompany it. And it’s seasonal—you can’t get it any old time, because the squash has to be just right. 2014, the year of the squash…won’t you join me?

Fireside Sessions with Nancy Atlas at Bay Street Theatre
ast End musician and perennial Dan’s Papers Best of the Best honoree Nancy Atlas has turned Sag Harbor into the winter’s hottest live-music venue by launching the inaugural Fireside Sessions, a new concert series in which Atlas and her band, The Nancy Atlas Project, take the stage at Bay Street Theatre almost every Friday night, joined by a new musical guest each time. The series kicked off with Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers taking over the drums on January 3, and the sold-out affair had the crowd on its feet and the roof ready to blow. As she prepares for her second Fireside Sessions gig, the January 10 show featuring guitarist Andy Aledort, the ever-on-the-move Atlas takes a break to talk about the series, her guests and her connection to Sag Harbor. What was the inspiration for Fireside Sessions? Beautiful music in a beautiful setting. The winter is a great time to reflect. I have so many talented friends; this is really a chance for us to sit down and make some amazing music without all the chaos of summer. It was also about giving back a bit. $15 is a price anyone can afford, so they get to see a killer band with a special guest in a fabulous theater and have a real night out without breaking the bank. I lived in Sag Harbor for years, so this is a nice way to reconnect.
How will these shows differ from, say, summertime Nancy Atlas events? It will focus on the guest more than my original music. It really is a mix of music they have written or particularly love and a few of my tunes. We are basically going to have fun and let go a bit. Now that you have the first Fireside Sessions show under your belt, can you reflect back a bit on the first night? Well...let me see. How does one reflect on one of their best shows ever without sounding like a pompous git? I will say this—as an artist, there is a very deep satisfaction when you have a vision and that vision becomes reality. Then, in very rare circumstances, the reality surpasses your vision. That is what happened last Friday night. After a blizzard. Chad Smith took the entire audience on a wild, ecstatic, hair-raising rock and roll voyage for almost two hours. We were just
Nancy Atlas in rare form!
along for the ride. He is, beyond a doubt, a total gift to have as a friend, and I adore him sharing his monster abilities with our band. What is it about Sag Harbor that speaks to you? I lived in Sag Harbor for about six years. As much as I love Montauk, I definitely still miss aspects of Sag, especially in the winter. I’m really looking forward to seeing some old friends and having a beer post-show at the Corner Bar with [bartender] Ed Schuster and [owner] Jimmy Smyth. In fact, I’m looking forward to this entire series. I think it will be magical. I feel it in my gut. One thing is for sure—I plan to bring it on. The stars have aligned; now all we need to do is plug in the amps.

a location signal so you can find the lions. That’s how we were able to round them all up. And also, each one gives a different signal, like a fingerprint, which can identify which animal they came from. They came from Nero and Rebecca.” The mayor took questions. “Are you saying,” one reporter asked, “that each of these lions gnawed off the chip of the other lion?” “We can’t say that is a definite.” “Weren’t we told earlier that these were all male lions?” another reporter asked. “Yes. But apparently they were not all males, if one of them was named Rebecca.” “The airport is surrounded by an 8-foot-high deer fence,” another reporter said. “Would that mean the lions are still on the airport grounds?” “We hope to find out. Nobody thinks they can leap up eight feet. But they have claws and like any cats, they can climb. At the present time, we are searching the airport grounds, particularly the fences to see if anything is amiss.” “Who is doing the searching?” “In the absence of the airport staff— the airport is closed at the present time because the staff, cowards that they are, all fled when they heard
How are you selecting your guest performers? I’m picking from a pool of individuals that I would basically go to see myself. I am a fan of each and every one of them and they are all top shelf. I also want the audience to see something new. Chad happened to be in town, Randi Fishenfeld is in from Florida and Andy Aldort wasn’t on the road with Dicky Betts. The series is meant to be!

“Nobody thinks they can leap up eight feet. But they have claws and like any cats, they can climb. We are searching the airport grounds...” the news—the searching is being done by the National Guard carrying standard military rifles and grenades, and accompanied by lion-sniffing dogs. But please do not panic.” “Why not?” “There is only the most remote possible danger from these lions. They are full of deer meat for one thing. We don’t even know for sure that they are here. There are only two of them so the odds of any one person seeing them are low. And of course, if they are still here, they are probably on the airport grounds. And when we have them rounded up, which I expect will happen later today, we will re-open the airport and, just to reassure everybody, I will have a press conference in front of the main entrance to the airport tomorrow at noon.” “Are the lions just going to be rounded up? Not shot on sight?” “Absolutely not shot on sight. Here in America, an African lion is a rarity. It is on the endangered species list in North America. If you see one, you can be arrested if you kill it.” “How long would it take before Rebecca has cubs?” a reporter asked. “No more questions,” the mayor said.

This Week’s Cover Artist: Joe Chierchio By STEPHANIE DE TROY
This week’s cover artist, Joe Chierchio, has done 14 covers for Dan’s Papers, each time enjoying the challenge of coming up with something new and quintessentially “Hamptons.” This time, he’s taken a departure from his typically very colorful palette in favor of something starker and more seasonal. The timing could not have been better for his submission, as East Enders begin to emerge from the recent blizzard. I had the great opportunity to chat with Chierchio about the cover image and his current projects. Is this cover, “Winterfeed,” a recent work? Yes, I just finished it within a month or two. We have a house in Water Mill where there’s a barn and a corral, which we’ve donated to Amaryllis Farm. My finacée, who is a sculptor (and who also loves horses) and I see people come in all kinds of weather and take care of the horses. You sculpt too, right? Yes, stone carving and bronzes. In fact some of my marble sculptures are at Chrysalis Gallery on Main Street in Southampton. Some of my drawings and paintings are at Arthur Kalaher’s gallery on Jobs Lane.
Oh, wow, I’m going to check that out this week. So, how long have you been coming out East? Almost 20 years. Since then I’ve had a lot of shows out there. In fact, one of the Dan’s Papers covers that I really like was of Candy Kitchen in Bridgehampton, and in it my friends are standing outside, leaning against their antique Packard. It was a fun cover, very nostalgic. I love the challenge of coming up with new ideas for the cover. I try to make it of the local scene, whether it’s an iconic spot like Wölffer or Candy Kitchen…I like to do the local color of the Hamptons. I was in the advertising business for 40 years, with Grey Advertising, and this is the most fun I’ve had, coming up with something apropos for out there. I do get the feeling of nostalgia in your work, especially that Brooklyn Diner one I see on your website. I love nostalgia. I love capturing the way things were, especially in the ’50s and ’60s, when I was growing up in New York. I love that diner over near 57th Street. A funny story about that one—I was having a show in Italy and it was included in the show and I got a call from someone who wanted to buy it for the owner of the Brooklyn Diner, a friend of his, but we couldn’t reach a deal. Back in the city, I was showing it again and this time the son of the owner saw it and ended up buying it for his father. So you never know who’s going to buy

So where can people go in the city to see your current work? The Gallery of Graphic Arts near Gracie Mansion is showing a series I just did from scenes in Charles Schultz Park. New Yorkers love scenes of their city. Yes, they do. I do a lot of scenes of Central Park. I live two blocks from the park so I go there every day with a sketchpad and a camera. I’ve also been working on some illustrations for the Hampton Jitney; people gathering there, getting off the bus. It’s such a Hamptons scene. In one of them, Dan is getting off the bus, reading his paper. I love to tell stories in my work, a little bit like one of my favorites, Norman Rockwell. He did 350 covers for the Saturday Evening Post and every one of them was terrific. Every one of them told a story. I really like the tree branching out behind the horses in this drawing, and that sliver of sunshine along the horizon. I usually put a lot of color and I had to stop myself with this one and just go with muted tones and just a little color in the sky. I wanted it to have that feeling of the cold, and the person who comes to feed the horses on a cold winter’s day. I like the message in this one; people doing good in some way, whether it’s with people or with animals.

The Business of Driving in the Snow By BOB GELBER
No one drove four-wheel drive cars when I grew up. In fact, the only company that made a 4WD vehicle was Willys Jeep, which produced a rather crude civilian version of a WWII army Jeep. Most people made do with large, heavy rear-wheel drive American cars with stick shifts. When it snowed, everyone knew the tricks of how to go in the snow. The big winners in the snow were the cars that had snow tires on their rear wheels. True diehards slapped chains around their rear wheels. Oh, and what a relief it was to drive with snow chains in heavy snow. However, they made a terrific racket, with a clanging that sounded like something bad was about to happen beneath your car, especially on concrete. Also, you had to be insane to drive faster than 40 miles per hour with chains. That was the state-of-the-art of driving on packed snow in those days. Drivers have to have some old-fashioned respect for snow on the highways, especially if you think ice could be lurking under the white stuff. I have vivid memories of sliding about 200 feet in my 1954 Jaguar XK120MC coupe, feeling like a passenger and not the driver as it slid in slow motion into a Buick. I was just a clueless college kid who didn’t know about ice
hiding under snow. Another time I was driving in a blinding and blowing snowstorm in Vermont at night in my Citroen ID 19 when I blasted through a truck-high snow drift blocking the road. When I finally stopped my sliding, unique-shaped French car and looked back, I was stunned to see a perfect silhouette of the Citroen cut out through the 10 foot high snow drift. Lesson learned. Look out for snow drifts, especially in the dark, and vive la France. Today, everything is different. When I’m driving in the snow I see SUVs of all types driving past me at speeds that were impossibly dangerous years ago. I quietly Not as good in the snow as one would think wonder if the total lack of respect for snow conditions and the false security to have use of this beast of a motor vehicle. of four-wheel drive has actually made winter I felt like General Patton, driving this diesel driving more perilous. Do folks realize that powered dreadnaught. The funny thing that I even though four-wheel drive vehicles go much discovered about the Hummer is that it wasn’t better in the snow than they did years ago, they very good in the snow. It was skittish. I felt do not stop any better? In fact, they may not perhaps the suspension was too stiff, and then stop as well because they are heavier. True, realized it was probably designed to go in soft ABS brakes help, but don’t help that much desert sand, and not wet slippery stuff.

Here Years ago, when the original US Army Hummer was the most accomplished-looking SUV in the was introduced for sale in the United States, world, which was a wallflower when it came AM General lent me a new Hummer for a week time to go in the snow. Beware, the same can to use in the Hamptons. It was in the middle be said for many SUVs when the white stuff gets of a snow-covered winter and I was delighted seriously angry.
It’s Throwback Thursday! This year, I’ve made all of my typical, passive resolutions to be more organized, more productive, etc… But I’ve decided to make two concrete ones as well. One, I’ll make my bed every day. And two, I’ll stop hating January and February. That’s luckily becoming easier, as new events seem to be popping up during the off season out here. I missed Nancy Altas’s inaugural Fireside Session last week, but I’m planning on spending this Friday in Sag Harbor. Also coming up is the first-ever Hamptons Wellness Week. Hosted by One Healthy Hamptons, the event begins on January 12 and consists of $5 fitness classes at over 15 studios between Montauk and Westhampton, as well as various leactures. Reminiscing about the past is slightly less productive that resolving to be better in the future, but after a solid two weeks of holiday relaxation, I’m in more of a reflective mood. I’m sure fans of social media have noticed the #tbt trend that often accompanies Thursday posts. Throwback Thursday. Though the hashtag is more of a project for photogs than wordsmiths, here are 10 #tbts I’d like to share anyway: 1. Snow on the beach this past week.

By MATTHEW APFEL
My name is Matt and I’m a tech-aholic. I am completely powerless and cannot stop using my smartphone. Whether it’s the middle of the night or attending my son’s soccer practice, I constantly struggle with my desperate need to connect, to browse, to text. I wasn’t born this way. In fact, I’m so old that when I grew up, we had one TV in our entire home. It had 13 channels and rabbit ears. There wasn’t even a computer; we used typewriters and this gooey substance called White-Out. Smartphones were for Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock. Now, I fear that my compulsive weakness is spreading to my family. My beloved wife owns two phones, two tablets and a laptop. She tries to text on multiple devices at the same time and it’s pretty funny. I’ve observed this behavior and it’s highly disturbing. My kids are also getting in on the action. My daughters complete their homework assignments online and speak in strange acronyms like YOLO and IDK. WTF?? The worst part? Whenever I’m at the park, my son refuses to run around unless I chase him while pretending to be the Ape from Temple Run. This cycle of addiction is hopeless!! What am I to do?? OK, back to reality. Much of that “confession”
was actually true, except for the part about the despair. I’m Dr. Gadget, so I need to embrace this stuff at all times. All kidding aside, there is a growing phenomenon across our great land. It’s called technology overload, and scientists insist it’s real. How real is it? Well, hospitals have started offering in-patient treatment to help people break their phone addictions. Concerned corporations have adopted “leave your phone at home” Fridays. Madonna was banned from a movie theater chain because she couldn’t stop texting during a film screening. There are even online support groups for computer addiction, which is highly ironic since you have to log in… using your computer. Personally, I’m on the fence. On one hand, I’m all for getting back to nature and sparking increased human contact. But at this rate, it wouldn’t surprise me if class action lawsuits arose just like with the tobacco industry— demanding millions from tech companies for all our pain and suffering on smartphones. Maybe that’s why Apple is hoarding $500 billion in cash. The good news: there are some easy steps we can take to combat our technology addictions. At home, we can pledge to read more books and get more exercise. Stepping away from your house or apartment creates a natural break from all the gadgets inside. Amazon has offered to help; they put a timer on Kindle tablets, which automatically shuts them down
Confessions of a Technology Addict
Addicted to technology? Yes.
whenever kids spend too much time playing games or watching movies. I’ve found that small, simple steps like these improve my listening skills and get me more engaged with my family. How about at the office? Not so easy. I force myself to turn off email for one hour a day, no matter how busy I am. Problem is, when I log back on, I have 400 emails to sift through, which just pushes the pile down the road. I also refrain from bringing my phone to most group meetings, where I’ll be tempted and distracted. But then I show up and everyone else is checking email, so why should I be the only one abstaining? Fact is, we’ve become so reliant on technology in the workplace that we struggle to perform without it. I sometimes wonder whether all the increased productivity really translates into better ideas, more efficient workers and safer products. What do you think?
Hitting the Big Time for the New Year This is it, I’ve hit the big time. I’m 11 years old and this is my first year at the adult table for our family New Year’s celebration. I’ll be seen as a peer, able to wise-crack and joke which will now be interpreted as being cool instead of getting me a back hand to the face. I’ve got to handle this just right or I won’t be able to sit here again next year. I’ll start with a quick study of the occupants at the table. I will make a mental note of something pithy and smooth that I might be able to say at just the right time, allowing them a glimpse into my brilliant and subtly sophisticated mind. Now let’s see, Aunt Alice just had something done at the doctor’s office but I don’t know what. She keeps a secret bottle of vodka in a tall boot in the back of her closet. I could make a joke about that. I mean, we all know about it, but we all pretend we don’t know about it, and when she says she never touches a drop, we all pretend to believe her. Then there’s Uncle Joe the cheap SOB. I only recently learned that when he’s in earshot, we just call him Uncle Joe. Ever since I can remember, he’s been Uncle Joe the cheap SOB. Apparently when he gives people money to get him cigarettes he counts the change. And sometime before I was born he tried to figure out
how many beers he drank from the keg at a party and insisted on paying for his estimated portion instead of going in equal with the group. Maybe I could make a joke about that. “Hey Uncle Joe how much do you think you ate of that 18 pound turkey? Eight bucks worth?” That oughta get a good laugh. I’ll add a knowing smile. I can just see the surprised look on my mother’s face at my ability to pull off such sophisticated humor. Aunt Margaret is bringing her third husband to the dinner. Dad doesn’t like him, but says that at least he’s keeping Aunt Margaret “off the pole.” She met him at a restaurant where she was a dancer. Dad yells that It’s a New Year on The Rock! she’s shallow and would’ve never married the guy if he didn’t have a lot of money. You can’t wake him up too quickly if he’s Mom yells back he never would’ve married asleep in the recliner. He talks very loud and her if she didn’t look the way she does with doesn’t listen to anyone. He won’t wear his her store-bought boobs. And Mom’s not too hearing aids. He’s the oldest and therefore sure if her diamond ring is real, “that so-called gets two carves of turkey. Mom holds her diamond ring is as fake as the rest of her.” breath every time he reaches for the big knife. Maybe I could work in a joke about fake turkey Apparently, there is an actual method to slicing breasts. “Hey Aunt Margaret, how much do you meat off the turkey that does not involve the think the turkey paid for those breasts, eh?” poor little turkey looking like he was hit by That should go over well. Smart, slick, a little a grenade. Yup. My first time at the big table and I’m risqué, but what the heck, you’re only 11 once. Grampa still thinks he’s in Korea on occasion. ready. Bigstock.om

EAST HAMPTON: The 7th annual Hamptons Marathon, held on September 28, has announced that it will donate $30,000 to Project MOST. Amanda Moszkowski and Diane Weinberger, founders of the Hamptons Marathon, will visit Project MOST at the John Marshall Elementary School on January 16 to present the program with this year’s donation. Each year after the race, the Hamptons Marathon team makes donations to support local East End groups. This year the Hamptons Marathon donated more than $75,000, including $30,000 each to Southampton Hospital and Project Most. This was their largest donation to date. In addition, the race supports the Springs School, the Springs School PTA’s K–3 extracurricular swimming program, the East Hampton Day Care Learning Center and East Hampton Youth Football. This year, the race also made a small donation to support runners affected by the Boston Marathon bombing last April through the One Fund Boston. Over the past seven years, the Hamptons Marathon has donated over $350,000 to support local East Hampton organizations.

Two True’s Beaked Whales Wash Up in the Hamptons HAMPTONS: Two True’s beaked whales washed up in the Hamptons this week. The rarely seen whale first appeared beached off of Gin Lane in Southampton Village on Sunday, January 5. On Monday, a second whale came ashore The juvenile True’s beaked whale in Bridgehampton in Bridgehampton. (See video at DansPapers.com.) The first cetacean was discovered Sunday at Little Plains Beach in Southampton Village. The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation came to the beach, but the whale was already dead when they arrived. It was transported to the foundation’s facility in Riverhead for a necropsy—an animal autopsy—to determine the factors that led to its death. The whale discovered on Monday, between Mecox Beach and W. Scott Cameron Beach, a little west of the Mecox Cut, is a juvenile. While the juvenile, which was also deceased, could fit in the back of a pick-up truck for transportation, an adult True’s beaked whale can grow up to 17 feet long. The female found Sunday was 15.5 feet long. Robert DiGiovanni, the director and senior biologist of the Riverhead Foundation, noted, ”The rescue program in New York has only encountered two in the last 30 years.” Results of the necropsies were not available at press time.

East End Towns Outline Provisions for Christmas Tree Disposal HAMPTONS: Do we have to admit that the holidays are over and the dreary days of January are here? Since the East End towns have outlined their provisions for Christmas tree disposal, seems like the answer is yes. For the month of January, three Southampton Town recycling centers will accept natural Christmas trees for no charge. The service is available for town residents only—including residents of the villages that are within the town. Decorations, lights and wires must be removed first. The town does not pick up trees at curbside. Trees may be dropped off at the North Sea center, 1370 Majors Path, seven days a week, the Hampton Bays center, 30 Jackson Avenue, seven days a week, and Westhampton center, 66 Old Country Road, six days a week, closed Wednesdays. Hours at all three locations are 8 a.m. through 4 p.m. The Sag Harbor center is not taking trees. The trees will be mulched and that mulch will be free to residents in the spring. All of the recycling centers will be closed January 20. On February 1, regular brush fees will resume. A tree would likely cost just $5 to dispose of, though brush fees range as high as $30 per load. Residents of East Hampton Town and East Hampton Village can leave their trees curbside and the respective highway departments will pick them up. Alternatively, residents can bring their trees to the sanitation department at 260 Springs Fireplace Road. Southold Town does not have a town-wide collection policy. Residents should follow the disposal guidelines outlined at their local recycling center or dump. Riverhead Town residents can also put their trees out with their garbage, and the garbage carter will pick them up.
Schneiderman Named Suffolk Legislature’s Deputy Presiding Officer SUFFOLK COUNTY: County Legislator Jay Schneiderman, a Montauk Independence Party member, has been chosen as the Suffolk Legislature’s Deputy Presiding Officer, second to new Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory, of Amityville. Formerly a Republican, Schneiderman now caucuses with the Democrats for a 12–6 majority in the Legislature. The majority caucus voted unanimously for both Gregory and Schneiderman at a December 20 meeting, then made their decision official at the Legislature’s annual organizational meeting January 2, the first business day of the year. Scheiderman, who serves the South Fork, was re-elected in November for his sixth and final two-year term, defeating challenger Chris Nuzzi, of Westhampton Beach, with 60% of the vote. He is now the longestserving member of the Legislature and, by virtue of his longevity, he chaired the organizational meeting. “I would like to thank my colleagues for this great opportunity,” Schneiderman said. “I look forward to working with Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory and the county executive towards a proactive agenda and to be a strong voice for Suffolk County.” Schneiderman’s office said his priorities over the next two years are mental health issues, poverty, public transportation and fiscal issues, as well as environmental concerns such as improving water quality and reducing incidents of Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses. As the deputy, Schneiderman assumes the presiding officer’s responsibilities in the event of his absence. He is the first member of the Independence Party to hold leadership at the county level. Gregory replaces Wayne Horsley, of Babylon, who left to become regional director of Long Island State Parks.

The dance studio celebrates its first year this month and owner Christiana Bitonti said she is already feeling at home on Main Street. “I love the community in Riverhead and the whole vibe of Main Street,” said Bitonti, an East End native. “Everybody has been really welcoming and they’re willing to really help you out and partner up, so that has helped the business grow pretty quickly in just a year.” Bitonti, 27, said her mission as head mistress of the Peconic Ballet Theatre is to provide a local venue for professional dance education, adding that as a child, she often needed to travel up island or to the city for suitable instruction. “We bring New York City choreographers and teachers out here to teach our students, so they don’t have to go there,” she said. “We have programs for kids that just want to take a ballet class, but for those who really want more serious dance training we have an apprentice class that’s by invitation or audition only, where dancers take classes five days a week in ballet and other styles. We also have master classes on the weekends.” All classes at the Peconic Ballet Theatre will be performing in their “Blank Canvas” exhibition on January 12, the Theatre’s one-year anniversary.
Leading up to it, Bitonti began instruction for that show by focusing entirely on technique. “It’s so important for us to build a really strong foundation and give our dancers the tools they need to perform and create,” she said. “Those tools are specific to the genre and what the dancer wants to pursue, but if I were going to focus in on ballet, it would be all about posture and technique— their turnout, their feet, their alignment, using and strengthening their muscles, as well as teaching them the vocabulary and vernacular. There’s so much involved in making a beautiful ballet dancer. It’s not just about learning the steps.” Nine-year-old Selena Pereyra of Westhampton Beach said Bitonti’s instruction in the past year has exponentially informed her abilities as a ballerina. “When I first started dancing, I could barely do a jump,” said Selena. “Now I can do a penche.” Penche is a classic ballet pose where one leg is extended behind the body with toes pointed toward the ceiling while the ballerina leans forward with the other leg on the floor in front of them. Bitonti said she encourages all her dancers to give themselves time in the morning and at night to work on increasing flexibility or strengthening muscles and students also do crunches and other exercises in class to get their bodies in top dancing shape, but Bitonti added exercise regimens depend entirely on the student. “Dancing has such a creative element and each dancer is an individual artist, so it’s hard to say which exercises are the most beneficial to a dancer,”

she said. “When working with students I have to see who needs this exercise or that one. It’s like training a painter or a sculptor or any other artist.” Bitonti only allows 12 students admittance to any given class, allowing her and other instructors to closely observe each dancer and get to know them on an intimate level. This relates to one of the most important aspects of the job for Bitonti—who received her master’s degree in counseling from NYU—the social aspect of dance classes and their effects on the developing psyche. “I did my whole thesis on after-school activities and it definitely showed from my research that creating something with other people—and having something to be connected to—builds self-esteem and self worth,” she said. “At the end of the day, the most important thing is for all of my students to feel good about themselves—no matter how strong they love dance or ballet—no matter what they choose to pursue or do in their lives.” Ten-year-old Chloe Vargas of East Quogue spoke to this when she said she not only loves Peconic Ballet Theatre because it offers instruction in multiple dance styles, but because she’s able to spend more time with school friends and others. “I like it here because there’s a lot of good friends from school that dance here,” she said with a smile. “But I’ve also made a lot of new friends.”

New Play Premieres at Bay Street Theatre By lee meyer
ay Street Theatre’s 2014 Mainstage Season, the first season under new Artistic Director Scott Schwartz, will include the world premiere of Conviction, by Carey Crim. Schwartz will direct the new drama, which centers around a beloved husband, neighbor and teacher whose reputation is rocked by a student’s accusation that he behaved inappropriately. Conviction will have the distinction of “co-premiering” in California and Canada, and Crim can’t wait to see the response. DAN’S Paper
“The play is about a beloved teacher and his family and another couple and their son. The teacher is the “teacher of the year,” the kind that we all remember, that inspired us in some way, and because of that he’s a bit of rule-breaker,” Crim explains. “He gets in trouble because of an accusation of sexual misconduct and it’s the fallout from that, especially among his family. It’s he-said-she-said; it’s an issue that’s been tackled before, but I wanted to focus on what the accusation does to his family.” Originally an actress, Crim found her calling as JRaVERTICAL x 9.125 playwright by6.187 accident. “I was a theater major at

Northwestern University, and [focused on being an] actor and was in Los Angeles for a while,” Crim says. “I did the rounds on a couple TV projects, and I was in London for a while at the Royal Court Theater. I came back [home to] Michigan on what was sort of supposed to be a pit stop at the Purple Rose Theatre Company.” Crim had begun to write her own audition monologues, “Even though you’re not supposed to do that! I made up the name of the plays and the writers and ended up getting better feedback on the monologues than the actual performances. I heard from a director, who wanted to find the monologue, and I came clean [that I created it] and he asked me if I’d ever write it, because he’d like to read it. I ended up sending it to Purple Rose Theatre for feedback, and they ended up producing it.” The play, Growing Pretty, was a hit. Purple Rose Theatre Company, which often featured work by the iconic Lanford Wilson, became an artistic home base for Crim, who credits Wilson as one of her inspirations. “Lanford Wilson probably—unknowingly—became a mentor of mine. Just watching him work, before I even knew I wanted to be a writer, he would work right up until his plays premiered. And if he could be that way with his work, who am I not to look at my plays from every angle? But by the time I was writing in earnest, it was near the end of his life.” Crim has been developing Conviction for some time. “It’s had more readings than any other play I’ve written or workshopped,” Crim says. “I have heard that a play can be lost in the workshop process. I really tried to be aware of that and use every workshop to deepen and sharpen what it already has. It has become what I was always going for; just getting to see it with different actors, you usually don’t get to see it until the rehearsal process. Realizing where the holes are… It’s very exciting.” Now a New York resident, Crim is excited to work in the Hamptons. “I’ve lived in New York for so many years, and haven’t been to the Hamptons!” she laughs. Conviction is a co-production by Bay Street Theatre, the Rubicon Theatre in California, the Royal Manitoba Theatre of Canada and Dead Posh Productions in London, England. “It really is my first New York play,” Crim explains. “I self-produced a play once, but this is my first full production here.” Crim is looking forward to collaborating with Schwartz. She enthuses, “I think Scott is going to do some wonderful things.” To buy a 2014 Mainstage Season subscription to Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor, call 631-725-9500.

New Biography Hits Shelves, Breaks Hearts “Welcome to the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota, a place where the Wild West comes alive.” And so begins an online hospitality ad. Understandably, nothing is said about the contentious debate going on in the area over a proposed uranium mine. Although the Black Hills are well known as home to the Mount Rushmore National Monument, it’s doubtful that many of the reported three million visitors a year know much about what tourist lingo refers to as “the first inhabitants,” or that many descendents of those first inhabitants would happily concur about “the rich and diverse heritage we all share.” A new book about the area, The Heart of Everything That Is: the Untold Story of Red Cloud, An American Legend by Bob Drury and Tom Clavin (Simon and Schuster), makes it clear, as Clavin says in an email, that the battle over the Black Hills “never really ended.” Perhaps it never will. Before he died last year, the Indian activist and actor Russell Means, an Oglala Lakota Sioux, like Red Cloud, condemned the uranium proposal as another government grab. The title of Drury and Clavin’s book is significant because for centuries the starkly beautiful Black Hills have been considered by the various Indian tribes who lived there sacred, Paha Sapa, “the heart of everything that is.” Although filled with extensive colonial history, the book focuses on the “charismatic” Red Cloud and on the Western territories at a critical time in the 19th century, two decades before South Dakota would become a state. The Civil War has just ended and western expansion is accelerating with the coming of the railroad and the introduction of ever-more efficient guns. Gold is rumored to be in the area, and U.S. forts are stringing out along new trade routes. As Red Cloud once said to his people: “The white man made me a lot of promises, and they only kept one. They promised to take my land, and they took it.” Although Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse and Geronimo are more familiar names, Red Cloud’s claim to fame is unique: as the authors show: Red Cloud (b. 1821), named for a meteorological occurrence at his birth, was, arguably, the 19th century’s most dynamic and successful Indian leader, even getting a war named after him: Red Cloud’s War (1866-1868), a great rout he spearheaded by uniting competing and hostile tribes to oppose the U.S. Army marching to destroy them in the Powder River country. Called Bluecoats, many soldiers were veterans of The Civil War and were well armed, but their entire battalion was wiped out by Red Cloud’s warriors, a humiliation for the U.S. Government that would presage the Indian victory a decade later at Little Bighorn. The Heart of Everything That Is abounds in scenes of savagery that the authors nonetheless render comprehensible. The clichéd phrase, “happy hunting ground,” for example, makes sense when understood as the place of The Great Spirit where the dead go in the exact physical condition they have left earth— which explains the torturing of an enemy. Gougedout eyes will not see the beauties of paradise; cut-off genitalia will prevent pleasure, hacked off limbs forbid hunting, the essence of Indian life. It should be noted, however, as the authors show, Hollywood notwithstanding, that the U.S. Army was not averse to scalping or mutilating the pubic areas of Indian women. What distinguishes Clavin and Drury’s compellingly told tale are several features: it’s not a polemic but a carefully researched narrative (with helpful maps), based on oral and written histories and interviews, some conducted with Red Cloud’s descendents at The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation (SD). Particularly
fascinating is the account of how the coming of the horse (mustangs by way of the Spanish) changed Indian life. Full of vicious details, the story makes for uncomfortable reading at times but for this fact is memorable. Especially among nomadic tribes such as the Sioux, war was “the reason for living,” and courage and bravery were particularly prized, In this regard, Red Cloud was preeminent for his strategic intelligence, uncompromising fierceness and shrewd aggressiveness—amazing achievements considering that he was five when his father died from alcoholism. The Heart of Everything That Is is a
thought-provoking work, especially about colliding cultures that turn on wholly different worldviews or mythic philosophies. Given the seemingly intractable so-called clash of civilizations today, the story they present gives pause. The book is also a good example of joint authorship, Clavin and Drury achieving a seamless style that includes effective shifts between present and past tense and spot-on imagery. On Wednesday, January 29, 2014, Tom Clavin will be speaking at the Rogers Memorial Library at noon as part of the Brown Bag Lunch and Book Chat series, myrml.org.

Keeping Up With the Queens of East End Music
The whole gang: (from left) Joe Delia, Anthony Liberature, Abby Levin, Nicole Wilson, Inda Eaton, Randolph Hudson and Klyph Black
By ellen dioguardi
or my husband and I, what started out as following a couple of favorite local bands has grown exponentially. In a magical kind of “six guitar strings of separation” game, following one band leads to another and before you know it there aren’t enough free nights or tread left on your tires to be at every performance of the musicians you’ve grown fond of. Eventually you start to see something other than just the great music—you start to see the people behind it. One of the most impressive things about so many in this talented group is what a supportive bunch they are. Nothing seems to exemplify that more than taking a look at the musical paths of two young women who’ve been inspired by this unique East End music community: Jewlee Trudden and Sara
Sara Hartman and Inda Eaton in performance
Hartman. Both of these young ladies (they are both under 21 years old) are talented, passionate about their music and count some of our best-known local musicians among their fans. They are, to different degrees, supported, inspired and in some cases guided, by a musical community that truly rocks. The thread of common names linking Jewlee and Sara include many local favorites; Inda Eaton, Cynthia Daniels, Mick Hargraves, Nancy Atlas, Klyph Black, Joe Delia, Anthony Libatore, Caroline Doctorow, Crossroads Music and I’m sure several others. The tangible contributions this community has made to their music and their young lives are best known by Jewlee and Sara, but it was clear to me upon interviewing them both that it’s had a powerful accumulative effect. “Me, Sara Hartman was on stage with Inda Eaton, Caroline Doctorow and Nancy Atlas. I mean WOW. The Queens of music out here and I was singing with them.” So declared a fresh-faced Sara Hartman in between saying “hi” to half of Sag Harbor as it passed by our table at SagTown Coffee. For Sara it was more than just inspiration from the “queens of music” that made a difference. She credits music Producer Cynthia Daniels with “pulling me out of a bad time” and calls Inda Eaton (who Sara performed with several times over the summer) and Inda’s wife Annemarie “something like my other moms.” This goes deeper than musical inspiration. This speaks to who the members of this musical community I keep referring to really are and it’s inspiring on many levels. Jewlee Trudden is all intensity, blood, sweat and rock and roll. Listening to her perform for the first time I was caught by how even though this was not “my” kind of music I was still transfixed. While Sara is settling into her first year at Berklee School of Music, Jewlee is touring, performing in Manhattan, upstate and in Florida. Already looking for a musical future of playing “bigger places with more people” she laughingly admits the life of an aspiring live musician “kicks your ass.” Michael Clark from Crossroads music gave Cynthia Daniels’ card to Jewlee a few years ago and so began what sounds like a very mutually fulfilling
Jewlee Trudden rocks out
connection. “Producing an artist with what we call ‘the curse of genius’ is one of the most inspiring and genuine experiences a person in my field can have.” claims Daniels, “Jewlee is a proliferate songwriter and player. We both took a chance on each other, and since we are still working together, that risk and reward relationship is ongoing.” Eaton and Daniels both have the most encouraging and heartwarming things to say about these young women. For me hearing about these relationships gave form and substance to the positive and uplifting energy so often felt at the live shows we’ve been attending. “Our East End music community is a generous group with a kind spirit that extends beyond public benefits, shows and appearances,” states Eaton. “For such a boisterous bunch—I can’t begin to tell you how many quiet and random acts of kindness I have witnessed behind the scenes and at the kitchen tables of the artists.”
On the Road By ELLEN DIOGUARDI
uring her winter school hiatus Sara Hartman returned home to Sag Harbor and performed at the Stephen Talkhouse’s “Outrageous Open Mic Nite” in Amagansett the day after Christmas and then had a solo show at the Grenning Gallery in Sag Harbor on January 3. After wowing the hometown crowds, Sara left for Nashville where she will be performing at a few venues, including an appearance this past Monday at The Basement, and she’ll be “making the rounds” with one of her many local mentors, Anthony Liberatore of East Hampton. Meanwhile Jewlee Truden and her band In Circles are gigging around the frozen North East with stops this Saturday at Sun Place in Boston, Hootie’s Goodtimes Café in Pawcatuck, CT on Sunday and The Velvet Lounge in DC on January 14.

Movies... The Legend Of Hercules The Legend Of Hercules looks to be a potent mixture of beefcake, violence, sex and half-baked mythology. Starring Kellen Lutz as Hercules, the strongest man in the world and, by virtue of the fact that Zeus is his father, a demigod. Now, if you were known to be the strongest man on Earth and a demigod, you might expect people to give you a wide berth. But poor Hercules is beset, seemingly from childhood, with a never-ending series of foes and tormentors who somehow get it into their heads that he is a pushover. It becomes his sorry fate to have to prove them wrong, over and over again, and it is sorry for the audiences of The Legend Of Hercules to watch him do so. The Adventurer: The Curse Of The Midas Box Just to answer the obvious question: this film has nothing to do with cheap, deficient mufflers. The film The Adventurer: The Curse Of The Midas Box is in fact set in England in the days before motorcars and mufflers, but not before the days of large, complicated machines. In fact, the film should be a steampunk’s delight. It seems that the Midas Box is a secret artifact held by a secret government agency, and it has the capability of bestowing untold wealth but also terrifying supernatural powers. The film was adapted from a popular teen novel, and is clearly
aimed at youthful viewers. The Great Flood In 1927 the Mississippi River flooded, laying waste to 27,000 square miles in the Deep South. What wasn’t heavily noted at the time, but what has since become the subject of heated debate, was the decision to open floodgates and sluices in order to direct the floodwaters away from white populations and toward black agricultural lands. The flood’s devastation, along with the Great Depression that followed starting in 1929, led to a transformation in American culture, as poor black farmers in the South migrated North to urban centers for better jobs. They brought with them music and foodways that shaped 20th-century life in ways that could not have been predicted. The Great Flood uses newsreel footage to show the ruin left by the flood: the newsreel footage, itself now badly decayed, echoes in its bubbly, water-like distortions the ravages of the original disaster. Banshee Chapter The horror film Banshee Chapter takes off from the (true) story that the CIA and other government agencies experimented with giving hallucinogenic drugs to volunteer civilians, with sometimes tragic results. From that the film derives a fairly run-of-themill “don’t look now” type of fright fest.

Products to Keep Warm This Winter Season By stephanie de troy
With the excitement of the holidays gradually slowing down, I thought I’d start off by taking a deep breath. As I was slowly exhaling, my sunglasses fogged up. Yup, it’s that time of year. We’re entering the season on the East End where many decide to head south. For those of us who brave it through the winter, myself included, I’ve gathered up some tips on staying warm as temperatures drop. To start with, nothing works better for me than going outside for a brisk walk. By the time you get back home, you can jump in the shower and follow with a good slathering of Dr. Haushcka’s Birch Arnica Body Oil. Specially formulated to revitalize after physical activity, the body oil gives all-around soothing warmth to the muscles and has a wonderful fragrance of energizing mint and lemon. The all-natural base of organic sunflower seed oil is lightweight, quickly absorbed and replenishes moisture. For an additional indulgence, give yourself a quick foot massage with the Rosemary Foot Balm and then slip on some cozy socks. The rosemary warms and invigorates the skin while silk powder and clay absorb and control moisture—keeping your feet soft, toasty and dry.

It’s no secret that cold-weather countries love their vodka, so when all else fails to warm you up, gather your pals and try a top-shelf vodka like Marquis. When it comes to drinking it straight, mediocre vodka just won’t do. Premium, well-filtered vodka is what’s called for. One such vodka, which is new to the New York metro market but has been produced in Poland since 1895, is Marquis Vodka. Marquis has a nice bite without burning the palate. Be sure to take a whiff before drinking; the aroma is inviting rather than medicinal. Marquis farms its own rye in-house and produces its vodka at a small artisan distillery near Warsaw. Rather than industrial stills used for making many vodkas—the same kind of stills for manufacturing ethanol—Marquis is distilled in a century-old copper still. It is charcoal filtered four times before being cut with 60 percent water from Marquis’ own limestone aquifer. The vodka comes in a tall, thin, attractive bottle, making for a memorable hostess gift, or a statement piece for a liquor cabinet. Stop by your local liquor store or go online to marquisvodka.com. One way or another, odds are good that you’ll be spending a large part of the day indoors. Keep things interesting at home by diversifying your usual groceries and going on little taste-adventures. The good folks at Iberia sent me a bottle of their Premium Select 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain with a
challenge: ‘taste for yourself—we think Spanish olive oil is as good as Italian.’ I agree. In fact, I didn’t even know there was a question. The Spanish have been pressing the golden elixir for centuries, right? Winter is also a good time to play with new makeup and beauty products. Why? Well, the heat won’t be melting it off and the dryness takes well to added moisture. I recently tried Intellishade SPF 45 Matte touted as a “breakthrough in pore-minimizing technology.” Right on. It’s light and moisturizing and does indeed “match every skin tone,” well it matched mine just fine. intellishadespf45.com Avid ShopTil readers may know I’m a bit of a health-nut-beauty junkie. My latest find is quite revolutionary, so listen up. L’dara Andvanced AntiAging Serum is free of parabens, mineral oils, phthalates or synthetic colors or fragrance and it really delivers. The breakthrough ingredients include a special complex derived from the magical goji berry. L’dara Serum helps reduce the visible effects of sun damage, boosts elasticity and retains moisture. It goes on clear and smooth and is completely non-irritating, even for my sensitive skin. Find yours at LdaraSerum.com.

Snowed In? Could be Good for Plants locations should be found for shrubs regularly piled on by the snow plows. Be sure to use plant (and animal) friendly chemicals and materials on walkways. Salt run-off soaks into soil and is defiantly not good for plants. We feed birds all year and our pond provides water for them. I filled both feeders before the storm and needed to fill them the day after. I think we are the neighborhood food center, as there are many birds of several varieties all winter. It is glorious to see cardinals sitting on the evergreens and their colors seem more intense in winter. I also put out cob corn for squirrels in the winter. I bought two big pumpkins in October for jack-olanterns. We just did not get around to carving them this year and I sat them “decoratively” in the house. This week I noticed that they were not in good shape at all. I split them open and put them under the bird feeders. The birds love them. They are eating the flesh as well as the seeds. While the plants in my garden hibernate under their mulch of leaves and snow, plant and seed catalogues arrive daily. I don’t mind the short cold days in winter, they remind me that spring is around the corner. Jeanelle Myers is a professional gardener, landscaper and consultant.

When the snow stopped, I put on tall boots and tramped my way to the small pond in the side yard. There is a pump going in it all winter to keep an open hole in any ice that may form. Without an opening, gasses become trapped under the ice and the fish sleeping in the bottom may die. The pond and its surroundings were covered with a deep layer of snow. The snow was sitting on a net I had stretched over the pond in the fall to keep leaves out. The net kept the snow above the water about 3 inches, and the water was moving as freely as it does in the summer. Naturally fallen snow or blown snow is a great insulator. Because air is trapped between the flakes, it acts like mulch, protecting the ground and plants from cold winds and colder air. When leaves and dead stalks from the summer are left, they create mulch. Snow on top of that makes an even deeper layer of mulch, keeping plants snug even in intense cold. When fall temperatures signal trees and shrubs to drop their leaves and perennials to die back, their roots still need water. Long lasting spells of frozen ground can cause roots to dehydrate and die, weakening or killing the plant. Hence, the
advantage of mulch that traps air. I dug under the snow and the leaves in my beds to find the soil cold but loose. Deep snow on foundation plants may even protect them from snow falling from the roof as melting begins. When snow settles on branches of trees and shrubs and causes them to bend more than usual, we may be tempted to remove it. Most of the time Winter scene on the patio this is not necessary, as any sun will begin to melt it and branches may actually be harmed with the removal attempt. Any removal that is done, however, should be done when the snow is loose and then by gently shaking the branch, perhaps tapping with a broom, beginning at the tip of the branch. Trees and shrubs that open severely from snow need to be prepared for winter in the fall by tying or burlaping. You may need an arborist for this task. When the snow melts it, of course, provides water for roots. If the ground is protected with air-filled mulch, the water will be able to soak into the earth easily. There is snow that is not good for plants. When snow is piled on plants from plowing or shoveling, it loses its air and thus does not function as mulch. If these snow piles remain on plants for too long it can damage or even kill them. Be careful of branches if removing piles of snow from shrubs. Perhaps new

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR THE REAL STORY Dear Dan, I read with interest your article in the Nov 1, 2013 edition of Dan’s Papers. (“Hold Them Responsible: Government Shutdown Lessons,” page 18) I grew up in the city and now live on the East End. I have lived for extended periods in Houston, Boston and Frankfurt, Germany and have had a chance to hear a wide range of views. Your paper was known in many of those places. It’s because of that wide readership that I wish to lodge my disagreement with your position. For the record, I believe that both political parties are equally reprehensible and fundamentally disingenuous. There’s likely little to debate that the shutdown was damaging to the country. That Obamacare has been made the law of the land is also true. It was a close-run battle and there were many, many inducements to legislators to get them to sign onto it. Even the polarizing speaker had said: “We need to vote for this bill so we can get to read what’s in it.”... As I recall during the news reports of the shutdown, it was the governing regime’s position that they would not negotiate, they wanted all of their demands or nothing. They practiced brinkmanship in the face of bipartisan attempts to reopen essential parts of the government...One statement you made is that the president is our commander-in-chief. You are wrong, flatly and dangerously wrong there. I’m not in the military and the rank of commander-in-chief is typically considered a wartime rank. The oval office has no authority over me outside of the Constitution, nor does the oval office have unrelenting authority
over the military. The occupant of the Oval Office is a public servant; where there’s a dispute between the delegated orders and the execution of those orders by the executive, then the judicial branch is supposed to act as the disinterested arbiter to settle the dispute. The system of checks and balances was arranged to prevent a run-away government, or a rogue administration, from steamrolling their agenda throughout the country. So these procedural issues you decry as derailing the execution of government were in fact designed into the system to keep things in balance...To want things to be otherwise is to call for a dictatorship. Near the end of your article, you suggest that the administration should go to Congress and press for laws to prevent this sort of government shutdown from happening again. Are you really calling for laws to prevent Congress from doing the duty they were elected to do: monitoring the interests of the American people they were selected to represent? But your closing comment is stunning. That the administration should go to the courts to hold people accountable. Do you really and honestly mean that? One thing that’s really amazing about your article is its apparent support of Obamacare. It was written after the launch of Obamacare and the utter, total and inexcusable failure of Obamacre to deliver on any of its promises: The ability to keep your current policy, the ability to see your current doctors, no increase in your premiums. Workers’ hours are being cut to avoid providing them insurance coverage. Even the Supreme Court played games by taking a position that was never entered into evidence, that
the penalty was actually a tax [thereby breaking] with all legal precedent of judicial process... Healthcare is a large portion of the American economy. We’ve gone to war for less money than this. When will they start waterboarding shirkers for not telling the truth? Let’s project ahead a little bit to a time when Obamacare is the operating system of healthcare in the land. Yet your attending physician can’t get an answer from his physician’s provider connection on the network to decide if you or a loved one can have a particular procedure, and for want of that answer from on high, you or your loved one die. Think that’s far fetched? Look at the record in the UK National Health Service or any other large, national health care provider for a heterogeneous population. Delays in answers cost lives. Responsive government is local government. Finally, I’ve been a consultant for some of the largest pension systems in this country. I tell you flatly that Obamacare cannot work. That’s a mathematical certainty based on the numbers and a large, diverse population group. It would be great to live in a country where everyone had access to healthcare and where one chronic illness would not financially devastate the hard work and savings of a lifetime. But Obamacare is not the way to do it. —Joseph J. OByrne, The Due Diligence Company, Greenport With all that said, you don’t shut down the government.—DR Email your letters to email@example.com

See what’s cooking now.
Where to save while dining out
By brendan j. o’reilly
wo North Fork sisters have combined their talents in Southold to open a new breakfast and lunch spot, Wednesday’s Table, which welcomed its first customers December 1. “What we wanted to bring to the North Fork was some diversity in food that we felt was missing, in a more casual environment,” co-owner and manager Lena Tanzi says. Her sister, Linh Trieu, is the co-owner and chef of this counter service restaurant, which Tanzi says is an alternative to the fork’s many formal dining restaurants. Trieu has worked in restaurants and cooking for 10 years, and wanted to go off and have a business on her own, Tanzi explains. They also decided to
forgo dinner and strictly serve breakfast and lunch only, so they could have a life outside of Wednesday’s Table. Tanzi, who splits her time between Peconic and Brooklyn, worked in financial services for 17 years, and now she runs the business side of Wednesday’s Table. Ironically, Wednesday is the only day of the week when their restaurant is closed. “There is a story behind the name,” Tanzi says. “It’s called Wednesday’s Table in tribute to our father.” They grew up as part of an immigrant family and their father, Phil Trieu, who has since passed on, worked multiple jobs and very long hours. “He had Wednesdays off. We think of Wednesdays as our family time,” Tanzi says. Wednesday’s Table focuses on specialty sandwiches and salads, with a variety of influences. Among the sandwiches on the menu are a Greek gyro, eggplant caprese melt, mushroom truffled grilled cheese and Vietnamese bánh mì.

Getting to the Root of Our Healthy Resolutions By this time, you’re resolved to eat right in 2014. Root vegetables like carrots, parsnips, leek and turnips, which are at their peak at this time of the year, make prefect candidates for winter dishes, releasing rich sweet flavors as they simmer for a pureed soup, or an oven roast vegetable side. The puréed root vegetable soup containing butternut squash is brought up to the moment with chicken broth and a garnish of reconstituted earthy porcini mushrooms. And a winter slow roast of vegetables is a colorful supporting player to a hearty entrée. In addition to their natural sweetness, root vegetables are high in nutrients, daily fiber and a range of cancer-fighting substances called phytochemicals. No guilt trip here when preparing any of the above. ROOT VEGETABLE SOUP WITH DRIED MUSHROOM GARNISH Dried porcini mushrooms are usually sandy. It is necessary to soak them in water to release the sand. Serves 6 to 8 1 butternut squash, about 2 to 3 pounds 2 large parsnips 2 leeks 2 ribs celery 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 5 1/2 cups chicken stock or low sodium canned broth 1/2 cup heavy cream For the mushroom garnish 1 ounce dried porcini mushroom Drained mushroom liquid 1. Place squash in microwave oven for 2 minutes on high for easier cutting. Lay the squash on its side and cut thick slices. Cut away and discard the shell then cut into cubes. Peel turnips and cut into cubes. Trim leeks, discard any bruised outer layers, then wash very well between the layers. If leeks are very sandy, let them soak in a bowl of cold water. Cut through the layers away from the root end then slice thin. Trim celery and wash well. Cut into thin slices. Chop the garlic. 2. Heat oil and butter in a large, 5-quart saucepan. When butter melts and foam subsides, add all the vegetables to the pan. Toss to coat in butter and oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover vegetables with a square of wax paper to sweat them, then cover pan and simmer on the lowest possible heat for 6–7 minutes. Discard wax paper and pour the broth over the vegetables. Simmer the soup over medium heat for 25–30 minutes, with cover ajar. 3. Meanwhile, soak the dried mushrooms in a small bowl with warm water to cover. Let stand about 5 minutes and lift the mushrooms into a second small bowl. Drain the liquid through a fine sieve into a third bowl. Return mushrooms to the liquid to soak again, and then drain again to be sure the liquid no longer contains any sand. 4. When the vegetables are very tender, puree the soup in a blender or with a hand-immersion blender. Add the drained porcini liquid and the cream to the
soup and stir to mix. Taste to adjust seasoning if necessary. Reheat before serving garnished with thin slices of the dehydrated porcini mushrooms. ROASTED ROOT VEGETABLES Turnips, celery knob, parsnip and carrots make a colorful arrangement. When the garlic is cooked, the clove, squeezed from its skin, is pleasantly sweet. Serves 8 to 10 2 white turnips 3 parsnips 1 bunch carrots 1 celery knob Several whole garlic cloves, unpeeled 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 2 to 3 teaspoons kosher salt Freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves 2 to 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar Preheat oven to 375°F. 1. Peel and trim the vegetables and cut them into chunky pieces of equal size. To remove the gnarled skin of the celery knob, cut along the sides with a sharp knife. 2. Spread the vegetables in a heavy roasting pan. Toss in the garlic cloves, olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme and toss again to coat the vegetables. The vegetables can be prepped overnight. 3. Cover vegetables with foil, shiny side down and place in preheated oven. Roast covered for 45 minutes. Remove foil, sprinkle vegetables with the balsamic vinegar and give the vegetables a toss. Continue to roast, uncovered, for 35 to 45 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender and crusty. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Scarola Vineyards in Mattituck a Masseria
Home for the Holidays” takes on new meaning at Cedar House on Sound Bed and Breakfast in Mattituck, owned by Frank and Donna Scarola and cousins David and Donna Perrin. Its not just home to their family and their boutique winery, its can be home for your family, too. Right now, their great room displays a hand-built nativity scene that David Perrin begins constructing months before. It features miniature vignettes that reflect the holiday spirit. There’s a glassblower, a baker, a fisherman and vineyards, as well as a lovingly crafted crèche. Five spacious bedrooms and expansive views make it a cozy place for a winter getaway, a unique opportunity to relax and sample the family’s wine and hospitality. With the strong Italian tradition of the family “masseria” (farmstead) informing his dreams, Scarola built a career designing and implementing software for financial institutions such as JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley, but longed to return to the land. “My parents were farmers,” Scarola says. “The stories resonated...I thought ‘let me create this ideal lifestyle here’. It started with the wine.” Although Scarola learned to make wine when he was a child, the story of the winery officially begins about 10 years ago, when he met Roman Roth of Wölffer Estate Vineyard at an event. “He had been voted best wine maker out here and I approached him as a stranger and asked about producing my wine.” A wonderful collaboration ensued, and rather than downscaling his current profession, he forged a new lifestyle commuting from his home in Garden City and job in Manhattan to the Island while developing the Scarola label with grapes he purchased from other growers.
But dreams have a way of taking hold of the imagination and expanding and Scarola recognized an opportunity to more fully embrace his vision. “I came across this property one day—an old potato packing barn...there was no flooring, no plumbing... It was in disarray,” he says, “but it had potential...I was overwhelmed with its size... and what was here...” He started work on the conversion, but ran out of steam. Enter David Perrin, whose wife, Donna is Frank’s cousin— not to be confused with “Tia” Donna, Frank’s wife. The Perrins lived in Florida and were removed from the “family scene” as Scarola puts it. Both were in the wine and hospitality business, traveled extensively and had a young daughter. As families do, another cousin suggested Scarola call Donna, that “they might be ready for a change.” Perrin remembers the moment succinctly. He was in the car, driving. “It was October 2009 and my wife called and said ‘remember my cousin Frank... here’s the thing...’” Have a glass! The Perrins knew nothing about the East End but were duly impressed. They came for Thanksgiving, traveled the North Fork, and went back to Florida to put their house up for sale. They were Long Island residents by March 2010 and finished construction of Cedar House B&B that summer. Scarola believes that farming runs deep. “David’s
parents were vegetable farmers in upstate New York. His dad has been with the NY State Farm bureau for many years. We both started with those roots, and came back to it.” Even Donna [Perrin], who grew up in Queens, has a background in agricultural. “Her dad turned the corner lot into a garden,” says Scarola. The year 2011 was big for the cousins. They planted their vineyard Memorial Day Weekend and launched the website. “We have amended the soil and try to be as organic as possible: sustainable gardening,” says Perrin. “We live there. We are not going to contaminate the area our children play in.” They currently sell their wine through the website and have poured at major East End events such as Taste of Two Forks and Harvest East End. Tastings are by appointment only in their rustic tasting room that overlooks the vineyard with3 the hand-hewn bar and harvest table. “We are #1 out of 38 B&B’s on Trip Advisor,” grins Perrin. “We are a destination: a place to stay, a vineyard experience— agro-tourism on the East End. We want to create an environment where people look forward to coming to sit and enjoy.” Courtesy Scarola Vineyards

“Local” Irish and Italian Cookbooks By stacy dermont
013 was a great year for cookbooks. As we Americans get “foodier,” the cookbooks just keep comin’ and East Enders are putting out their fair share. This is a splendid time of year to try some new recipes—especially if it heats up the whole house! Hands down 2013’s most beautiful East End cookbook is Earthguide to Wellbeing by Maggie Harrsen and Good Water Farms. This East Hampton farm is all about organic microgreens and this book is all about celebrating the health-giving power of eating microgreens. The photographs and recipes are equally arresting and simple. Maggieharrsen.com
This is a good story to read aloud to children—and then put them to work in the kitchen! A favorite for all ages. Ambassador International released Christmas Flavors of Ireland, Celebrating the Festive Season. It’s local cookbook author Margaret M. Johnson’s 10th release—earlier titles include The Irish Pub Cookbook and The New Irish Table. Johnson lives in Westhampton Beach and often travels to her ancestral home in Ireland. In fact, 2014 will mark 20 years of Johnson’s sojourns to the motherland. Her next cookbook, Favorite Flavors of Ireland, will be something of a retrospective of her previous books. I chatted with Johnson about Christmas Flavors, she suggested that her recipes for Christmas pudding and gingerbread bars are particularly good choices
to make with children (in the kitchen, not in the batter). Her Christmas pudding happens to be her favorite holiday recipe and it involves a lot of easy measuring of ingredients—kids love to help with that. Don’t limit your consumption of this treat to the holiday season. Her gingerbread bars with cream cheese frosting are a favorite for all ages. The La Parmigiana Cookbook (Peconic Bay Consulting) is big and straightforward, like the Southampton eatery it’s named after. The Gambino family pictured on its cover looks oddly uncomfortable, but don’t let that stop you from taking a peek inside. The recipes are no-nonsense and they use a lot of good, canned tomatoes. Italian-American cuisine is hot right now—so this book could be a hip hostess gift stuffed in a basket with a load of goodies from La Parm’s deli on Hampton Road. My favorite part of this cookbook was its lengthy introduction, which tells the story of Gambino patriarch Celestino AKA “Papa.” He was tough but fair, a hardworking man who is very much missed by his family and community. This is a good story to read aloud to young children— and then put them to work in the kitchen! Written by Phil Keith and the Gambino family with photographs by Lindsay Morris. An old local favorite, now in print And last but never least, it ain’t local, it’s not even a book—but it’s fabu: Meredith launched I heart that little marshmallow-headed guy and will the new magazine, allrecipes, last month. The make him for my young (and young-at-heart) friends’ premiere issue had me at melted snowman cookie. delight throughout the winter months.

Where can you find that perspective? Right here. Every week, we turn to a virtual roundtable of experts in East End real estate for their insights into developing trends, their knowledge about national real estate news influencing the local market and their thoughts on buying and selling. Home mortgage debt rose in the third quarter of 2013 for the first time since the end of 2008, according to a new report from the Federal Reserve. What does this indicate for the Hamptons housing market? “The increase in the home mortgage debt is a very positive sign for our housing market. Although the Federal Reserve has been adding to the money supply in record numbers, prior to the third quarter it had not translated to an increase in home mortgages. This will especially aid the middle market which has lagged behind both the high and low end, which requires less or in some cases, no financing.”—Alan Schnurman, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Saunders and Associates
“Home mortgage debt rising is generally a good sign for the housing market. During tough times in the housing market, many more buyers are all cash and we are beginning to see a change as normal service is resumed. The Hamptons market continues to improve and Q3 saw an increase in both number of sales at 31%, and sales over $5 million increase by 54%, and we expect to see this continue as new inventory and an increase in newly developed properties arrive on the market to replace the inventory that had been somewhat stagnating.”— Maz Crotty, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson, Nest Seekers “Housing is back as a solid investment, as demonstrated by buyers leveraging other people’s money to buy again. This means that purchasers expect housing to appreciate because they are taking on debt to get into the game. So, expect expansion and growth to be in store for the Hamptons housing market in 2014. Now is when real estate in the Hamptons should be fun again.”—Andrew M. Lieb, Esq, MPH, Lieb at Law, P.C. “Obviously, banks are loosening up on lending in the United States according to this report from the Fed. However, the Hamptons are a unique microcosm and what happens in the rest of the country doesn’t necessarily correlate to us. It has been my experience that the homes under a million are hot and many of those buyers are obtaining financing. However, I still see all cash deals taking place in the higher price

points.”—John Christopher, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Brown Harris Stevens “I’m not Ben Bernanke or Janet Yellen but I don’t think the small adjustment in interest rates will affect our sales. Money is still inexpensive for now and buyers will take advantage of cheap money.”—Lynn November, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Douglas Elliman Real Estate Read more about the Real Estate Roundtable on DansPapers.com.
