How To Buy A New High Efficiency Heating and/or Cooling System At Our Cost. Yes, it’s absolutely true you can actually replace your old (and probably very inefficient)warm air furnace and add-on or replace an air conditioning system at the same time AT OUR COST! Let Me Explain. This winter got off to a rather mild start and slowed our equipment sales. To make matters worse, the months of January, February, and March are normally slow anyway, but this year there are usually slow. So, I decided to create a buying incentive to hopefully drive enough business so they I can keep my entire staff busy until things pick up as they usually do in the spring. How I Created a Win-Win Scenario I went to one of my manufacturers and made a purchase commitment of 47 heating and cooling systems. And because of the time of year and them being slow if their contractors are slow, I was able to buy them at drastically reduced prices. By putting this furnace and air conditioner package together and guaranteeing the manufacturer the volume to offset the price difference, I was able to buy both the furnace and air conditioner for less than I would normally pay at any other time of the year! Plus, this before the typical price increase they usually pass along at the beginning of every year. So, if you buy one of these premium systems, I am giving you the complete system AT OUR COST. If you would like to be one of the 47 homeowners to get a new heating and cooling system at the best price I would ever dream of selling one for (and with no money down), give Tina a call right now at 631-727-2760 and she will explain how you can take advantage of this amazing offer. So Here’s The Deal… > FREE comfort survey & energy analysis of your home – A $295.00 value > Buy a new heating OR cooling system and get 12% off (our profit) our everyday printed price and a UV Germicidal Light (a $795.00 value) installed for half price – You save $397.50. OR… > Purchase a complete heating AND cooling system and get 12% off. Also, get the Ultra Violet Germicidal Light PLUS a high efficiency air cleaner (a $595.00 value), both for half price – You save $695.00! > Two (2) years of FREE preventative maintenance – Up to $400.00 value > FREE ten (10) years parts and labor no repair cost warranty – an $895.00 value. > Up to $1,000.00 in rebates for Lennox. > No money down and no payments or interest for twelve (12) months with approved credit.

Ironclad Guarantee. If we don’t meet all of our promises and guarantees, which we will share with you in writing, and if you’re not 100% satisfied with every aspect of your SameDay Heating & Air experience we’ll return ALL of your money! No Questions Asked. You Can’t Lose! This is our exclusive one year test-drive satisfaction money-back guarantee. How Can You Get This Offer? Call Now! Call Tina at 631-727-2760 today, and she will set up a visit with one of our Comfort Advisors to come by and perform a No Cost No Obligation Comfort Survey and Energy Analysis to evaluate your existing system, home comfort needs, and prove to you how much in energy dollars you can save by replacing your old inefficient system now. He will show you which system he recommends for your home and explain why that system is best for you. This is a free on-site evaluation and you are under no obligation to buy anything – EVER! Offer Absolutely, Positively Ends March 15th. Our business always picks back up again in early April with spring turning people’s thoughts to air conditioning and the summer heat waves and the manufacturer specially discounted prices will go away. So, we will stop all special sales on our March 15th cut-off date or after we sell the 47 systems, whichever comes first, no exceptions. This will allow us time to properly install all new systems before the weather breaks and we get busy again. The only reason we are making this offer is to keep our team of technicians busy during one of the slowest times of the year. Our loss can be your gain if you act now and call Tina at 631-727-2760 and have one or our Comfort Advisors give you your special price and extra equipment at tremendous savings. Thank you for reading about our program and in advance for your consideration, I hope you “profit” greatly as a result.

Couples Through History with the Most Famous Love Affairs in the Hamptons By Dan Rattiner Next Thursday is St. Valentine’s Day. In honor and appreciation for all the love and affection that goes around on that day, we hereby present our list of the Hamptons’ most special couples, from then and now. We hope you enjoy meeting and learning a little bit about them. And if you feel that you and your other half should be on this list, well, you probably should be. There is nothing better in life than being in love and in a happy relationship. Send flowers. Joshua and Goody Garlick In 1657, Elizabeth Gardiner, daughter of John Gardiner, the chief citizen of East Hampton, grew very sick and had to take to her bed. As she worsened, people came to visit her and try to cheer her up, or, since there were no medications to speak of back then, let her know she was loved and pay their last respects. One woman who visited was Goody Garlick. As Goody stood at the foot of the bed, Elizabeth, who was just 18,

woke up from her delirium and pointed to her. “It is she who has cast this spell on me,” Elizabeth shouted. The next day she died. Goody was charged with the crime of being a witch. She was taken to a courtroom in Hartford, Connecticut and tried. But there was no real evidence to convict her, and so she was acquitted. Nevertheless, after returning to East Hampton, she was shunned. She turned

John Tyler and Julia Gardiner John Tyler, President of the United States, was widowed while in office in 1842. Three months later, he was invited aboard a new warship, the Princeton, for its maiden voyage on the Chesapeake. Also invited were David Gardiner, a resident of East Hampton, and the Secretary of the Treasury for President Tyler. Gardiner brought his 17-year-old daughter Julia along, and during the voyage, the Captain ordered the big gun fired. A group of people gathered on deck not far from this gun. But the gun misfired and, instead exploded, sending shrapnel everywhere. One piece hit David Gardiner. Sailors carried him below and laid him on a bed in a stateroom. His daughter followed. As she stood there weeping while her father expired, the President himself came down the stairs. It was only natural that he put his arm around this frightened young girl. From that day forth, they were inseparable. Soon they were married, not at Julia’s East Hampton home, but at the White House itself. The marriage of John and Julia Tyler was the only marriage ever to take place at the White House, before or since.

This couple, one the most famous actress in America & the other the best playwright, spent the summer of 1950 in Amagansett.

Dan Rattiner is the founder of Dan’s Papers. His memoir, In the Hamptons: Fifty Years With Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Billionaires and Celebrities will be published by Harmony Books this May.

to her husband, Joshua, a respected farmer in the village, and said she didn’t know what to do. We will leave this place, he said. And he spoke to John Gardiner, who arranged to have them live out on Gardiner’s Island where they subsequently lived out the rest of their lives. It was the sacrifice made by Joshua, to make his wife comfortable, that is the reason they lead this list.

A bevy of journalists with homes in the Hamptons will be honored this weekend in Harlem at the Broadcast Legends event at the Apollo Theatre. Among them are Maurice Dubois, Lynne White, Pat Battle, Soledad O’Brien and Lori Stokes, along with Marian Etoile Watson, Greg Gumble and more. Dana Tyler will emcee the event. * * * Washington, D.C. debutante Alexandra Wentworth and her husband George Stephanopolous, ABC’s Washington chief correspondant, have sold their East Hampton estate for $2.5 million, which is over $.5 million more than they bought it for in 2005. The political power couple will surely still be seen on the Hamptons social circuit this summer. * * * Following in daddy’s theatrical footprints is Eliana Lane, daughter of Mr. Broadway, producer Stewart Lane of East Hampton. Eliana is the assistant director of the soon to open Off Broadway musical Bathsheba, which also features young Southampton actor Emanuel Sylvano as King Solomon in this retelling of the great Biblical epic of David and Bathsheba. The show will run at the 411 Theater on 43rd Street in Manhattan. * * * A classic Montauk mansion, symmetrical and waterfront, designed by Tom Gessler, has just sold for $21.5 million to art collector and media entrepeneur Adam Lindemann, who is the husband of Amalia Dayan, granddaughter of the late Israeli politician Moshe Dayan. The couple can list Paul Simon and J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler amongst their neighbors. * * * Hudson City Bancorp, Inc., the holding company for the East End’s own independently started Hudson City Savings Bank, reported that total assets for 2007 were a record high for Hudson City at $44.42 billion. Forbes recently named Hudson City “The Best Managed Bank” of 2007. * * * A six-bedroom oceanfront contemporary on Meadow Lane designed by Norman Jaffe — bringing the eighties back — has been listed at $1 million, for a mere summer rental. The 6,500 square foot, four-acre home is listed with Sotheby’s. * * * Sag Harbor’s E.L. Doctorow was recently honored with the 2007 Chicago Tribune Literary Prize. The acclaimed author of World’s Fair and Ragtime does much of his uniquely styled writing at the quiet, cozy home on John Street that he shares with his wife, Helen.

Julia bore the President seven children. After Tyler left office, they retired together, and in 1862 he died. Julia outlived him by nearly thirty years, and she had a wonderful life both in East Hampton and Washington, DC. Carl and Jane Fisher One of the wealthiest men in America during the 1920s was Carl Fisher of Indianapolis. An adventurer, he held the world automobile speed record for one mile when in his early twenties. He developed the sealed headlamp. He built the Indianapolis Speedway and he persuaded the government to build the first paved highway connecting New York with San Francisco. It was called the Lincoln Highway. He also bought and developed Miami Beach, and he bought and then developed Montauk until the crash of ‘29 wiped him out. In 1922, Carl Fisher, in his late forties, met and married Jane Watts. She was 15 years old at the time. And though you may find this shocking and not fit for this column, I should say the marriage lasted and thrived. When Fisher developed Montauk from 1926 to 1928, building the Montauk Manor, the Montauk Yacht Club, a raceway (now Fairview Avenue), both churches, the Montauk Golf Course, a surf club and boardwalk, a polo field, the layout of downtown and many of the buildings, and Montauk Harbor for the fishing boats by blasting open Lake Montauk, he also built a giant sevenstory office building in downtown Montauk, and way up on the top, at the request of Jane, a penthouse apartment for them so they could

Looking Closely Hillary & Barack Debate with One Another in Regular & Hi-Def TV By Dan Rattiner I watched the Clinton-Obama debate on television at my home the other night. I have DirecTV, so I get CNN on two different channels, one that is regular TV and one that is HiDef. I started out on the regular TV channel. Obama made some strong points about Iraq and his opposition of the war from the beginning. Clinton made points about health care and her long-term involvement with it. The two candidates are both smart, and they sparred gently with one another, I thought. It seemed, to me, to be a tossup about who was the better choice at that point.

But then some friends of mine came over to watch, and one suggested we watch all this in Hi-Def, so I hit the remote. One thing about Hi-Def is that it is so clear and sharp you really get to see everything up close and personal. From this point on, all I could think about as these two continued to debate was the physical characteristics of the candidates that I never noticed before. We were looking at people under bright lights who were not Hollywood types. They were politicians and they had flaws. It was like at dinner when somebody has a piece of spinach in their teeth. Obama has a prominent vein, actually two of

them, on the left side of his forehead. He also has several black moles. And I thought he did not shave his neck as closely as he shaved his cheeks. Maybe it was fear of getting a razor cut — wouldn’t that have been something. So he apparently went gently with the razor down there. One of my guests pointed out the vein also. We talked about it. Other than that he is quite charming. Hillary has apparently had some sort of facelift. There are now dimples on her cheeks, but they are not where most people have dimples. The dimples are in the crease of her face (continued on the next page)

THEGIANTSWINIT!THEGIANTSWINIT! THEGIANTSWINIT! By Dan Rattiner At the beginning of November, I wrote an article in this newspaper about the pathetic condition of the sports teams in the city of New York. Three games had gone by in professional football and both the Jets and the Giants had lost all three. In basketball, the hopeless New York Knicks were getting clobbered every other day by every team that came into Madison Square Garden, from the Detroit Pistons to the Secaucus Mudcats. And the New York Mets baseball team, which led the National League for months, suddenly collapsed and embarked on a record-breaking

series of losses that resulted in their not even making the playoffs. Meanwhile, up in Boston, the traditional rival of New York, everything was breaking their way. The Red Sox won the pennant. The Boston Celtics were in their own league in basketball — at one point they had 24 wins and 3 losses — and then there were the New England Patriots. Having made three Super Bowls in the last five years, they were moving now undefeated with quarterback Tom Brady at the helm, and truly becoming a legendary team for the ages. Boston is sports crazy. And I have friends

there. Never in my lifetime had there been an occasion when in every sport our archrivals were at the top of the heap and New York couldn’t punch its way out of a paper bag. But there it was. Thus it is that I am sitting here at 7 a.m. on Monday at the beach in East Hampton with my laptop to report that yesterday, Super Bowl Sunday, was probably the greatest day of my life. I’m sure you saw it, or at least heard about it. The New York Giants, having lost their first three games, struggled for much of the football (continued on the next page)

season, but then embarked on an extraordinary series of wins that, only at the very last moment, raised them up enough so they could make the playoffs as a wildcard. Wildcards rarely get past the first round of the playoffs. In forty-three years of the National Football League, only once has a wildcard won the Super Bowl. As for the New England Patriots, they had marched along victoriously all season, developing the astounding record of eighteen wins and no defeats. In the forty-three years of the NFL, only once — the Miami Dolphins thirty years ago — has a team gone undefeated for the entire season. Now the Patriots were one game away from doing so. And in the Super

Bowl, they would play the New York Giants, a team they had beaten twice during the regular season and somehow had wobbled into the arena. In Las Vegas, the odds makers said to bet on the Giants. They wouldn’t win the game, but they would lose by less of a margin than the spread. During the season, I had become a Giants fan now and forevermore. I love watching sports, but prior to this, I have simply enjoyed rooting for whoever was the underdog. I liked the idea of a team with fewer skills that might rise up, and with a mighty effort, triumph. Sometimes it would happen. Most of the time it didn’t.

The game that converted me permanently to the Giants was the second game against the New England Patriots. It was the second to last game of the regular season. The prior week, the Giants had won a game that guaranteed them a spot at the bottom of the playoff round. Meanwhile, the New England Patriots were fourteen wins and no defeats (continued on page 29)

where her cheek meets her mouth line. She also seemed to have a rash on the left side of her neck. “It’s not a facelift,â€? said one of my female friends. “I think it is Botox. And I think that’s what gave her a rash.â€? Someone got up and found a magazine on the coffee table that had a picture of her taken about three weeks ago. She had no dimple there then. She was also not smiling. And her cheek was smooth. Now she is smiling even when she is not smiling. “It’s a permanent smile,â€? somebody said. “Well I like it,â€? somebody else said. “Well I don’t. She looks like the Joker in Batman.â€? “It’s a BENEVOLENT smile,â€? a third person said. “And she’s cute.â€? The four of us were there on that couch. We speak freely with one another. “We shouldn’t be talking about Hillary like this,â€? somebody said. “She’s a woman. Women take offense to this kind of conversation.â€? “Well isn’t THAT sexist.â€? “I also think whoever put her makeup on, made her up so she’d look good under lights and at a distance.

Somebody made a comment about the Nixon-Kennedy debate, and how Nixon was so sweaty and that’s why he lost the election. Oddly, nobody spoke about Obama’s ears. On the screen, they were talking about tax cuts or something. I really I have no idea. How did it all turn out, anyway? •

Trouble in Armenia Turkey, Russia, Germany, Azerbaijan, Macedonia and Kazakhstan By Dan Rattiner At 6 a.m. the other day, we were getting into a taxicab for the 45-minute ride to John F. Kennedy Airport. The cab driver, a burly fellow of about 50 years old, seemed to be of foreign extraction. It occurred to me that he might have been from one of those tiny countries that developed where Yugoslavia used to be, or maybe from another tiny country in the Balkans. “Armenia,” he said, when I asked him. At 6 a.m., for the life of me, I could not bring up Dan Rattiner is the founder of Dan’s Papers.

What came to mind was a small war that’s been sputtering around Armenia for about ten years, between the Armenians and their neighbors, the Azerbaijans. The Armenians are Christian. The Azerbaijans are Muslim. Between them they take up the few hundred miles that separate the Black from the Caspian Sea. But this fellow was in America. I wondered about it. “Is that war still going on with the Azerbaijans?” I asked.

“Of course,” he said. “It will always be war.” “Why is that?” “It has to do with the Turks,” he said. “You know the Turks were not always in Turkey. It used to be occupied by the Greeks.” “I knew that.” “So the Turks swooped in from western Russia. And they’re where they are now. But a little pocket of them never got to Turkey, but instead settled on the western shore of the Black Sea next to us. Then they discovered oil just to the south of us. And everybody wanted it. The English and French came to make deals with us. But the Germans allied with the Turks and built pipelines through where the Azerbaijan Turks were next to us. Everybody was afraid somebody (continued on page 31)

A CALL TO ARMS ABOUT UNDERGROUND LIPA WIRES By Dan Rattiner Well, the decision has come down from on high from the Long Island Power Authority, and what they have narrowed it down to is that for four of the six miles of the route through Water Mill and Scuttlehole, they will put the power lines underground, but for the last two miles, they will put them on poles above ground unless the residents of the area involved, Scuttlehole, agree to pay up to $850 a year extra for the next thirty years. The final decision about all this will take place on February 21. Meanwhile, the people will have to decide.

Putting the wires underground is a wonderful solution, if the residents opt for it, or if the residents along the way can persuade others to opt and pay for it, and it would mean that not only these residents but future residents will continue to enjoy these sylvan views of the farms and fields forevermore. And we commend LIPA for putting it out there as what they would do. I should say this debate about where to put the wires scared the daylights out of most of us, because we discovered that some of the various routes under consideration went above ground on tall poles across people’s lawns, over rooftops and through virgin wood-

lands. Allowing public involvement at the very beginning had been made necessary by, it turned out, new rules mandated by the State. There’d be no waiting until the last minute when the choices would be narrowed down to two or three. LIPA was required to have the general public look at all the maps showing the various options, about forty possibilities, only one of which was underground. It was “not in my backyard” gone wild for a month. Another interesting discovery made as we went through this terrifying process was that the power company, like the water company (continued on page 30)

GOLDENSTEIN — BEDOIN Mary-Allison Goldenstein of New York and Southampton was married to Prince Ali Xavier Bedoin of Rhydia, Saudi Arabia on the weekend of February 2-3 on the Southampton platform of the Hampton Subway System. Over 2,300 people were in attendance. The father of the bride, Harold Goldstein of Water Mill, Vail and


and causing the stuffiness. Environmentalists came, including officials from the Bronx Zoo who said this was the largest raccoon in the entire world and they wanted to display it. The raccoon was darted and, while asleep, snared and brought up to a cage on the grass set above the duct grating there. But the raccoon soon awoke, and apparently, with considerable effort, managed to bend the bars, climb out and run off into the woods. Although a wide search of Shinnecock ensued, with people being urged to lock their doors at night, nothing turned up. But then, the stuffiness returned and subway officials found he was back in the vent, having built a nest in there. And we are going to leave him be.







RACCOON RETURNS AND RIDERS WILL LIVE WITH IT A one hundred and fifty pound raccoon that escaped from an air duct in the subway system while being rescued last week is back in the air duct again. And this time, the Hampton Subway security team is just going to leave him there. Eight days ago, subway riders noticed that on the K Line, between Southampton and Hampton Bays, there was a spot where the venting system seemed to be blocked on occasion. Every once in a while, things got kind of stuffy for the riders as they passed by this spot. An investigation revealed that this giant raccoon had gotten himself into the air duct that leads from the tunnel up to the surface there. He was moving freely inside the duct. But every once in a while he’d sit on the vent, blocking it

Barbados, rented out the entire subway system for two days, so it was shut down to the general public for the occasion. Goldenstein made sure that those special few who were allowed onto the system had the time of their lives. For example, Steven Spielberg, Martha Stewart, Sarah Jessica Parker, Alec Baldwin and Paris Hilton all said that the event was among the most special they had ever experienced. Originally planned as just a one-day event, it was expanded to a whole weekend of events when it was realized that due to religious restrictions, the Bedoin family would be unable to eat during Saturday, February 2. Therefore, that day was devoted to the many, many entertainments that took place on the various subway platforms system wide. Subway cars festooned with flowers took people between Jimmy Buffet in performance on the Amagansett platform, the New York Opera company doing a tag team performance of nine different operas on the Sag Harbor platform (Lincoln Center in New York City was shut down for the occasion), Sting on the Hampton Bays platform just below the subway’s headquarters, the Tyree Bell Modern Dance Company on the Westhampton Beach platform, and the Barnum & Bailey Circus performing with elephants on the Montauk Platform. The Goldenstein family and all the other American guests, in solidarity with the Bedouins, also fasted on February 2. But then, on Sunday, February 3, the festivities and banqueting began in earnest. At 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, as a swarm of media helicopters puttered around in the sky over the stairs going down to the Southampton station, with the Paparazzi using long lens cameras to catch the arriving guests, the couple was married in a Catholic, Jewish and Muslim combination wedding that featured a team of priests, mullahs and rabbis who performed a religious dance of solidarity as the nuptials were sealed. A highlight of the wedding was when the Rabbah Ginzberg Ali-Ha, as he asked to be known for this occasion, asked if there was anyone present who objected to this union taking place, only to have a slender young man at the back of the platform stand up and come running forward to say that he objected, only to be brought down by the bride herself with a taser. It was all in fun of course, and the man was “taken away� to “Southampton Hospital,� where he shortly recovered. The couple went off to honeymoon when the festivities ended at 5 p.m. and will remain in Sri Lanka until the end of March.

An Amazing Row Shelter Island Rowers Break Records Rowing across the Atlantic By T.J. Clemente After successfully rowing across the Atlantic Ocean in 36 days and 55 minutes, thereby setting two world records for a crew of four, skipper Roy Finlay is safely back at home on Shelter Island. In a challenge race for the Blue Riband Trophy that started on December 15, 2007 in the Canary Islands and ended around 10 a.m. January 20, 2008 on the island of Barbados, Roy Finlay’s quest for adventure was satisfied. Aboard the 30’ Orca, he realized two dreams — being the first multi-hull rowboat to cross any of the world’s oceans, and achieving this goal while setting a world record time for a rowing crew of four. The 43’ La Mondiale won the race and the

trophy, also setting a world record at 33 days 7 hours and 30 minutes. But La Mondiale had a crew of 14, with eight men rowing at all times. Thus, both crews set world records. Battling stormy dark nights, with thirty foot waves, 45 mph winds and rain, plus losing their electronic communications due to water that at one time measured six inches in the bilge, the crew of the Orca overcame forces of nature to enjoy the sweet smell of success. In addition to Finlay, 46, the crew included first mate Denis Richardson, 32, tech guy Chris Cuddihy, 53, and master of the menu, Ronnie Desiderio. Finley credits co-designer Jim Antrim for helping him create the first multi-hull rowboat to cross any

ocean. “The Orca performed way beyond my expectations,” he said, smiling, after a safe crossing. The Orca celebrated two other accomplishments. First, it was “world’s fastest four,” meaning it was fastest crew to cross the Atlantic, and reaching the fastest speed of a rowboat crew of four — achieving 17.3 mph riding down a 20-30 ft. wave. According to Finley, “On that run we were moving so fast we could have pulled a water skier.” The second accomplishment was that the crew actually averaged 24-hour runs of 116 to 123 miles per day. Subtracting the three days they had to use an ocean anchor because of a (continued on the next page)

NEW CULINARY ARTS SCHOOL DEBUTS IN RIVERHEAD By Silvia Lehrer A grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception for the new Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) Culinary Arts and Hospitality Center in Riverhead was held on January 17, amid much hoopla. Referring to the many contributors to the effort, SCCC President Dr. Shirley Robinson Pippins eloquently stated, “Success has 1,000 parents.” Following the Pledge of Allegiance, master of ceremonies George Gatta, Executive VicePresident of the College, introduced the many dignitaries, including Pippins, Board of

Trustees Chairman William D. Moore, State Senator Kenneth P. LaValle, State Assemblyman Marc S. Alessi, Suffolk County Legislator William J. Lindsay, Chairman of the Suffolk County Legislature for Economic Development, Energy and Higher Education Wayne Horsley, and Riverhead Supervisor Phillip J. Cardinale. To those who put their hearts and souls into the project, Pippins added, “This is a great day. Great things just don’t happen. They require collaboration, planning, leadership and expertise. This is a great moment for the SCCC, a tipping point after many small steps, truly validating an opportu-

nity to glimpse into the future.” The future is seen as the College’s investment in downtown Riverhead. SCCC will serve as a vital workforce in the region’s development for tourism and hospitality industries — a mainstay of the area’s economy — and a key component in the revitalization of downtown Riverhead. The official opening of the Center coincides with SCCC’s spring semester, which began on January 24. Programs include one-year certificates and two-year AAS (Associate in Applied Science) degrees in the Culinary Arts, Baking (continued on page 22)

masseuses and string quartets. Champagne, caviar and truffles will be served the length of the line on these special cars. And as a special touch, admission to these cars will be limited only to those who can pay for their fare in Euros (for which our token booth operators are in the final stage of classes). And when the ride is over, first-class passengers will find teams of limousines up on the street at the top of the entry stairways of each of the stations to take passengers to wherever it is they have to go, free of further charge. You should know that for the past few months, because of cost overruns, the start date had been postponed again and again as we waited for new funds. Mr. Goldenstein’s $9 million was just what we needed. On another matter, you should know that the man who Mary-Allison tasered just as the nup-

tials were being read, was, it turned out, an old and now unwanted boyfriend of hers named Billy James O’Reilly from Shirley. MaryAllison, who just graduated from Wellesley with a black belt ninja degree, made short work of him, and he is still recovering in Southampton Hospital. When he gets out, he will face charges of molesting, disturbing the peace, stalking, trespassing and just being a bad person in general. The Bedoin family, in solidarity with the Goldensteins, later that night issued an order against him ever setting foot near her again. As well they should. In any case, after a monumental cleanup by our faithful maintenance department, the subway is up and running once again. And if we missed something, for example, a little bit of cavier that might be on the floor or something, well it is up to you if you want to eat it. •

his own water filter to produce the one and a half gallons of water consumed per person each day. Water became the theme of the trip. The voyage began with good weather and a good full moon, and ended with one. But in between the crew rowed the 9 1/2 foot-long carbon fiber oars in darkness and rain, which fell for almost three of the four weeks. The men were constantly battling storms and huge waves. Finlay recalls that 23 flying fish actually landed in the boat, and one morning after getting beat up by waves and weather, the boat was littered with dead fish, beaten to death by the force of the boat crashing through the 20-30 foot waves in the darkness of an ocean storm night. Skipper Finlay said, shak-

ing his head, “In the pitch black you knew what was coming, but then you didn’t.” In the big wave storms, the oars were brought in and Orca was steered with a rudder. All the water from the bad weather destroyed the Orca’s communication capacity. Other than a handheld VHS with a 20-mile range, there was no way to reach the outside world after day three. In fact, the only vessel that ever answered the VHS was Captain Chan of the Philippines, aboard the container ship Chirio. Chan and Finley are now destined to be lifelong friends. It was Captain Chan who eventually notified the crew’s families that they were all okay after many days in a communications blackout. Finley’s handheld GPS was used for the navigation. Along the way the crew saw two whales, sharks, a sea turtle, lots of flying fish and of course, the friendly dolphins. The men had blistered hands, and despite using both Vaseline and silicon seats, they all developed open sores on the buttocks — the most unpleasant physical distraction. Finley doesn’t plan to sit still for long. This summer he will help manage another crew that plans to row Orca from New York to Paris. He is also intent on challenging La Mondiale in a summer 2009 event from New York to Glasgow. However, it will be management from hard ground. Finlay has promised his wife Colleen and his two young sons, Roy and Charlie, that his days of actually rowing across the seas are over.

Well, maybe not all of us. We regret the inconvenience of not having the subway running for those regular riders who tried to use it over the weekend, especially for those who showed up without knowing about this special event and had to find alternate means of transportation. But you have no idea just how important this wedding was for your privately owned subway company. The Goldensteins paid Hampton Subway nearly $9 million for this event, and you can be sure this money will be very well spent. As you may know, the subway system is just about to put the finishing touches on its exclusive first-class carriage class of travel that we expect to put into service sometime in the next three weeks. For those who can pay the extra fare, there will be front-of-the-train parlour cars with chandeliers, butlers, love seats,

brutal storm, the men covered the 3,000-mile journey in 30 days of rowing. When rowing, the oarsman steered with the oars. Most of the time two rowers paddled in onehour shifts. The southerly route had warm weather and warm water and at noon each day the crew took a break for a recreational swim. Finley said the crew took 350 pounds of food along, ranging from cans of Chef Boyardee spaghetti and meatballs and ravioli, to freezedried goods and canned fruit. In fact, when the crew arrived in Barbados all that remained in the inventory was four cans of Spam. For water, each crewmember had a Swiss made Katadyn desalinator manual water filter.

The Lone Sharks in front of The Wild Rose.

Wild Rose Redux? A Plan to Restore the Wild Rose Café, But Not to the Way it Was By Maria Tennariello Whenever I drive down the Bridgehampton Turnpike, I slow down and sigh as I look at the building that used to be the Wild Rose Café, number 203 Bridgehampton Turnpike. I remember very well how special this place was to the community and to everyone who met up there on the weekends. I even remember the phone number — 537-5050. Formally Gordon’s Inn, the Wild Rose (as it was known by locals in its heyday) was a short walk from Bridgehampton Village. Remodeled from an old tavern, it was magically turned into a restaurant/bar reminiscent of a speakeasy, with a large art deco bar that promoted many a conversation, comfortable sofas, roomy booths, a

baby grand piano and even a reference library. The Wild Rose Café opened its doors in 1994 by owners Brian O’Leary (formally of Nick & Toni’s) and Dean Golden, former owner of the Fresno. They had the winning formula for this year-round local hangout that caught on quickly. Once the summer crowd was alerted, it was almost impossible to get in on a Friday or Saturday night. A big bearded man named Jack was always at the door admitting a happy crowd that couldn’t wait to get on the dance floor. Sometimes he had to turn people away if the room was already filled to its capacity. At the restaurant, O’Leary and Golden joined forces to served healthy local fare, with a light, late night eclectic menu available from 5 p.m.

until whenever. The many delicious and interesting offerings included peach salsa, salads, pesto bread, spring rolls, great Bloody Marys, Irish coffee, beer on tap, local wines and espresso. Tables and chairs were placed around the perimeter of the room, which was lit only by flickering candles, hiding the décor that some considered unattractive. A very special place, The Wild Rose Café was where Hamptonites who all knew each other hung out and danced non-stop to an eclectic mix of music on Thursday through Sunday evenings. The music started at 9 p.m., featuring jazz bands, DJs and the unforgettable country rock music of Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks, (continued on the next page)

E.H. PASSES LAW RESTRICTING HOME BUSINESSES By Daniel Simone In the Hamptons, people from all social strata have conducted their art and business professions from the comfort of their homes. The list includes dance instructors, writers, doctors, craft designers, sculptors, pet sitters and many others. It’s long been a cozy tradition, particularly for artists, writers, and filmmakers. The area seems to foster an inspiring and calming ambiance — a cradle for creativity. But as the sparse population has become dense with homes and residents, some privileges may be misinterpreted or violated. East Hampton Village Officials have been noting not only a dramatic increase in businesses and

professions operated out of residential dwellings, but an expansion of enterprises that don’t comply with the definition of “home occupation.” For example, explained a Village building inspector, who asked to remain anonymous, “We’ve found contractors running their businesses from their homes, cluttering their properties with all sorts of bulldozers, dump trucks, forklifts, and you name it. Neighbors complain, because they turn quiet neighborhoods into industrial areas. Not to mention the noise pollution. It’s one thing to have an art studio in your home, but it’s a horse of a different color when someone operates heavy equipment in their backyards.”

As a result, on January 18 the Village Board unanimously voted to “enact codes that would restrict these abuses.” In fact, the citizens who attended, without exception, embraced the amendment with a sigh of relief. A home occupation or business, as defined by the existing Village code, describes it as a “gainful activity in a single-family residence that is clearly secondary to residential use.” Further, “a home professional office” is defined by living space where a New York State licensed professional practices. In part, the code modifications require that the office area must be incorporated within the owner’s (continued on page 29)

and Pastry Arts, Hotel and Resort Management, plus Continuing Education and Personal Enrichment courses for those who wish to improve and expand on their existing cooking skills. In addition to the culinary arts facility, the second level of the Center will house SCCC’s new Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) program. (Currently, the college’s highly regarded Registered Nurse programs are offered only in Selden and Brentwood.) General education courses and English as a second language will be available in large classrooms in the facility. But right now, it’s the cooking school that’s taking center stage. The innovative culinary arts program is designed for students with a career interest in both culinary and food service management. The program is divided among career-specific courses, and courses in business and the liberal arts. This curriculum will prepare students to enter the workforce or continue their education by transferring to bachelor degree programs. Students also will receive specialized instruction in baking and pastry arts, along with an intensive introduction to international cuisine. To supplement their skills development, students will participate in a 200-hour internship program. The acknowledgement of Richard Freilich, Program Director of Culinary Arts at the SCCC, as the visionary behind the culinary school project, was duly recognized with a presentation of a framed, beautiful rendering of the new center. His dream has produced the Baking and Pastry Arts Laboratory with sta-

tions for 20 students and a Culinary Arts Laboratory with stations for 16 students. There is a separate Dietetic Technicians program that will have use of the labs as required. The laboratories are equipped with gleaming state-of-the-art kitchen equipment, some of which was donated by Sub-Zero/Wolf. The streamlined, Sub Zero/Wolf 60-seat demonstration theatre/lecture hall with graduated seating, full instruction kitchen, brick oven and integrated instructional technology will be available for general courses. At the opening, one of the instructors demonstrated and served light-as-air warm crepes topped with luscious, caramelized fresh strawberry sauce. The new center will enable the culinary arts program, which had formerly operated at full capacity of 50 students, to expand to 188 fulltime students over a four-year program. As a member of the SCCC Culinary Advisory Board, I felt Freilich’s energy, passion and leadership that set this project in motion. This investment in higher education has been made possible by significant financial support by way of grants from several of the dignitaries — $250,000 from Kenneth La Valle, $30,000 from the Suffolk County Legislature, $150,000 from NYS Assemblyman Marc Alessi, $330,000 in capital allocations from the County and $200,000 in capital support from the Assembly. The College has been

able to finance the initial equipment costs for this new facility. On February 8, locals and tourists will be lured to the SCCC’s retail space in the form of the “Bakers Workshop Café and Bistro” at 20 East Main Street in downtown Riverhead. The stunning bakeshop will offer pannini, soups and salads and all manner of pastry and baked goods. The adjacent atrium, complete with chairs, tables, and handicap access to Main Street, sponsored by the Parr Organization, is accessible to patrons of the bakeshop to enjoy their purchases, and to the students. Students have the option to spend the required 200 hours of internship for their SCCC degree at the bakery. The state-of-the-art, all brick 28,000-squarefoot facility was constructed by the Parr organization and the attractive, modern building was designed by Baldassano Group Architects. The hallways and classrooms are painted in a spectrum of soft colors defining the spaces, and Lou Pedota, who works for the college as the director of construction, was lauded for his tireless efforts beyond the call of duty. Along with some of the closing remarks at the ceremony, Bill Maher, an effective advocate for the College and the sitting chair of the Board of Trustees, spoke on behalf of the Board when he said that it was great to be part of the on-going transformation of downtown Riverhead. State Senator La Valle commented that he was “so glad to be at this feel-good event.” For more information on the programs, call Professor Freilich at (631) 548-3543, Eastern Campus Admissions at (631) 548-2512, or visit their website at

who are still playing the circuit today. “Not a month goes by that someone remarks about the good ol’ days at Wild Rose Café and mourn the passing of a really cool scene,” said Casey. Sadly, its reign came to an end in 2001. The Wild Rose Café building still stands on this half acre site, but was recently under scrutiny by the Southampton Town Planning Board, which just gave the OK to part of the revamped plans for the site. Some of the exterior improvements include a re-shingled roof and a new porch. A decision still has to be made on the parking lot. So, at a site where ghosts of past days would sing and dance the night away, the building will now be turned into a seafood restaurant that is planned to open sometime this summer, “If everything goes right,” according to Golden, president of Café Properties. Meanwhile, any hope of resurrecting the original Wild Rose Café is just a fantasy. But, if I hit the lottery, the doors will open again, the Lone Sharks will be rocking and all the old timers will be seen sitting at the bar ordering whatever they ordered in 1995. It could happen, you know.

The Lord be Praised 100-Year-Old Logo at Pierson High School Wins its Right to Stay By Janine Cheviot After much controversy and discussion, a family crest will remain unaltered and a school’s logo will remain intact. In a unanimous decision last week, the Sag Harbor School Board approved the Sage coat of arms and crest as the official logo for Pierson Middle-High School. The arms, which had been used unofficially for many years, signifies the family heritage of Margaret Slocum Sage, Pierson Middle-High School’s primary benefactor who donated over 75% of the funding needed to build the school in 1908. The school is named after the Piersons, Sag Harbor natives on Ms. Sage’s mother’s side of the family.

“I compliment the board on its decision,” said Sag Harbor resident and Pierson alumnus George Simonson, who attended the board meeting. “The right thing was done for all the right reasons.” Controversy over the use of the Sage coat of arms was stirred at a board meeting last fall, when senior student Dhruva Corrigan, who had been asked to design a sign that would hang over the entrance of the school, presented an altered version of the Sage crest. He replaced the Latin phrase “Mea Spes Est In Deo,” which translates to “My hope is in God,” with the slogan “Enrich the World.” Pierson art teacher Peter Solow supervised Corrigan’s

work. Simonson, head organizer of Pierson’s centennial celebration last October, originally worked with Corrigan and Solow to design centennial materials, but their collaboration ended with a disagreement over the use of the word “God.” The controversy arose again on the first day of the centennial celebration during the rededication ceremony held on Pierson Hill. Pins designed by Corrigan (with Solow’s support) were not distributed because they featured the altered crest with the phrase “Enrich the World,” which had not been approved by Sag Harbor District (continued on the next page)

HAMPTON TRADITION XXIII — THAYER’S HARDWARE By T.J. Clemente There’s nothing like a stroll through a hardware store, shelves filled with so many things you truly need or would like to have. Almost every American town has had its hardware store, but few have the staying power of Thayer’s Hardware and Patio, a fixture in Bridgehampton for the last 55 years. Opened by Nathan Townsend Thayer Sr. and his son Nathan Townsend Thayer, Jr. in 1953 right on Main Street and open seven days a week, the Thayers have maintained a high level of commitment and service to the community. Roger Thayer, the third generation of the

family, has been at the store for 45 years. “I am too young to think about turning it over,” he said. A 1967 grad of Bridgehampton High School, he hasn’t seen a big shift in inventory. “Same hammers, same screwdrivers, same hardware,” he said. Roger’s grandfather, Nathan Sr., who summered in Amagansett in the 1920s, moved here permanently in the early 1950s from Brooklyn after Nathan Jr.’s service in World War II had ended. Together they laid the groundwork for the jam-packed store. Strolling down the aisles gave me the feeling I got walking into a hardware store with my

father years ago. I noticed the wooden handled corn brooms. A row with every kind of light bulb, including those new, weird looking energy saving ones, caught my attention. Cans of paint made me think of what rooms need to be painted. A display of flashlights made me wonder if I had enough batteries. Pitchforks, spades and other garden tolls were a reminder that spring is coming. New Weber grills elicited thoughts of summer. Then I arrived at the Black and Decker power tool zone. You could almost hear them hum. Next to those were old time saws powered only by old time elbow (continued on the next page)

Superintendent Kathryn Holden. “The problem I have with anyone changing the logo, besides the legality, is what it stands for,” said Simonson. “The logo has been around for a long time. It doesn’t make sense to change it.” Simonson noted that his concern was nothing personal toward the student, but that the logo’s design shouldn’t have been put in his hands in the first place. “What happens in four years when new students want to change it again? I think there is more to do in art class than change a school logo that was established 100 years ago,” he added. Since the centennial celebration, it was confirmed that the word “God” could legally be used in the crest as part

“Alumni Hallway” was also discussed at the recent board meeting and is being considered. “All we ever wanted to do was make Pierson proud. We never had an ulterior motive,” said Simonson, who noted that Pierson alumni are still thanking the centennial committee for the great time they had at the celebration. “We honored tradition and our benefactor, and brought everyone together. In the grand scheme of things, the logo fiasco was a minor distraction.” Ms. Slocum Sage represents a significant part of Sag Harbor’s history, as she also funded the John Jermain Library, named after her grandfather, and the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum, which was originally her summer home. For many Pierson alumni, changing her family’s coat of arms would be changing a sentimental piece of history. “I hope Ms. Sage is looking down and saying they did the right thing,” said Simonson. “She gave Pierson a generous gift. The crest is her legacy, and we should honor that.”

of the logo because a coat of arms is granted protection by the kings of England under common law. Legality aside, many supported the use of the original Sage crest because it signified Pierson’s rich history and tradition. “The community was behind us. We had wonderful support,” said Simonson. “Why argue about something as elementary as honoring the woman who gave us the school?” The outcome of a controversy that began with the wording on school signage is that the original Sage crest with the Latin phrase “Mia Spes Est In Deo,” will soon hang over the doors of Pierson Middle-High School’s entrances on Division Street and Jermain Avenue.

grease. In the camping section a portable “sport generator” caught my eye. Not sure if they’re allowed on Sagg Main Beach, but it might be fun to set up a 42” big flat screen TV there, using the generator to watch a ballgame. Back in the corner was the classic hardware — screws and nails ranging from 8-inch spikes down to smaller sizes. I love buying bags of nails, and then banging them in everywhere because I have so many. Although Thayer’s has always carried patio furniture, a spacious and well-stocked patio extension was added 13 years ago. The patio furniture is of high quality — much of it made of teak. And there were plenty of cool table umbrellas, and sturdy deck chairs. Roger Thayer, on deck at the store for so long, is a treasure trove of information on the inventory. The tradition in the Hamptons is asking a Thayer for help and advice when it comes to hardware — and getting it.

Who’s Here By Daniel Simone In the foyer of the upper midtown Manhattan townhouse, two promotional posters of vintage productions hang prominently on the wall. In other rooms, the walls are a testimonial to the arts and entertainment — photos with celebrities, newspapers and magazine articles, diplomas, thirteen Emmy nominations and a table top displaying letters of gratitude sent to the resident of this home, James Lipton, by many of the guests who appeared on his popular show, “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” The living room is dominated not by a testimony to his professional accomplishments, but homage to his personal life. A gracious and flattering painting of Lipton’s wife, Kedakai, whom he calls “a most astonishing woman,” looms large. Lipton’s talents have been seen in film, on Broadway, on television, and read in six tomes over several decades. His fame skyrocketed thirteen years ago when he launched the Bravo series, “Inside the Actors Studio,” a show accessed by 84 million homes in 125 countries. Lipton has capitalized on one of his natural traits, an impassive and ever-present expression of reticence that he describes in his book as that of a “particularly dour undertaker on an especially bad day, even when I am seething with good humor.” This aspect, the stone-faced Lipton, has distinguished him from other television show hosts. Like his writing style, his speech is eloquent, each word and phrase preceded by forethought. His vernacular favors a tinge of legalese, and for good reason — his first training was in the law profession. Owing to his mother, a teacher and his father, a poet, he is a wordsmith who writes with a literary adroitness layered with philosophical undertones. As a child, Lipton was often presented with books by his mother — his most treasured of those gifts was an encyclopedia. Owing to his love of language, Lipton became conversant in Latin. In fact, a favorite summer pastime for young “Jimmy” was to translate lyrics of popular songs into Latin. Although Lipton first embarked on a career in law, it wasn’t his passion, for his inclination to the arts was a far more powerful calling. “My mother had imparted upon me the ardor of the arts,” he said. But Lipton pursued a law career largely because he equated life as an artist as a life in poverty. His father, Lawrence

James Lipton Writer & Interviewer Lipton, a prominent poet and beatnik, exemplified that image. In his most recent book, Inside Inside — a cathartic memoir published last October — Lipton writes that his father “is not one of the heroes of this account, neither is he a villain, I’m not sure what he is — or, in fact, who.”

called his book, An Exaltation of Larks, his “letter to the world.” First published in 1968 by Penguin, it has not been out of print since. The book, rich with ingenious engravings, is a compendium of about 1,100 poetic terms. Lipton calls it “a wordlover’s garden of delights.” Penguin refers to it as, “a literary perennial that has become an American classic,” and has scheduled the release of yet another edition in 2008. Prior to “Actor’s Studio,” Lipton wrote and produced NBC’s “Mirrors,” which he had adapted from his original novel. Books bound for Broadway followed, as well as lyrics for two musicals. On Broadway, he produced The Mighty Gents, starring Morgan Freeman and the comedy duo Monteith and Rand. Critics called the play, “the comic event of the season.” Lipton also wrote and produced Jimmy Carter’s “Inaugural Ball,” and developed, wrote and directed twelve of the highly acclaimed “Bob Hope Birthday Specials.” His own theatre training was under three of the most revered theatrical masters — Stella Adler, Harold Clurman and Robert Lewis. A lifetime in the arts served as the inspiration for two of Lipton’s most recent endeavors — “Inside the Actor’s Studio” and The Actors Studio Drama School. Neither undertaking was strategically planned. It started when Norman Mailer and his wife Norris were members of the Actors Studio, a drama workshop organized in 1947 as a “cloister” for actors, directors and writers. They insisted that Lipton come and attend a session. He did, and became first a member of the Studio and later its vice president. With the assistance and collaboration of a roster of other dedicated members that included Paul Newman and Ellen Burstyn, he founded The Actors Studio Drama School, and classes began in 1994 with Lipton as its founding dean. Thirteen years later, the Actors Studio Drama School has become one of the largest and most renowned in the country, and the series “Inside the Actors Studio” burgeoned to a vast success. Asked if he foresaw the rampant success of the show, Lipton’s eyes widened and he boomed, “Not in my wildest imaginations. It was a joint, arduous effort involving many people.” He added, “At a point and time not too distant in the past, I had three lives. I was the dean of the Actors Studio, the writer of the series, its host and executive producer. I main-

Although Lipton first embarked on a career in law, it wasn’t his passion, for his inclination to the arts was a far more powerful calling. The book chronicles Lipton’s innumerable accomplishments and his glorious career. Those pages, filled with evocative details, are like frames of a film that play his life. Lipton’s writing career started very early. He was a published poet by the age of twelve. He

tained a preposterous sixteen-hour schedule.” To date, “Inside the Actors Studio” has hosted 200 celebrity guests — the very first being Paul Newman. But attracting A-list actors wasn’t easy in the beginning. “At first we were regarded with skepticism,” he said. “It was a new concept, an unscripted interview just as you and I are now having this unrehearsed conversation. Other talk show interviews are pre-scripted. But it’s the spontaneous format of my show that evokes unencumbered responses to my questions from my guests.” Lipton was eager to discuss his newest accomplishment, Inside Inside. He gently lifted it from his coffee table and spoke of it with the pride of a father speaking lovingly of his child. “I’ve just received this from my publisher. It’s a leather bound issue of my book.” The book chronicles the victories, defeats, aspirations and rewards of his life. It abounds with details told through the voice of a captivating raconteur, and outlines the conception,

scope and development of the Actors Studio Drama School and “Inside the Actors Studio.” Lipton wrote Inside Inside over the span of two years, with relentless intensity, from his home in Bridgehampton where he vacations during the summers. “I’ve been frequenting the Hamptons since the ‘60s. In one chapter he explains how he booked Steven Spielberg for the show. “I ran into him inside the East Hampton Cinema, on the popcorn line,” said Lipton. “We inadvertently cut to the front of the snack line, and had it not been for Mr. Spielberg’s fame, the incident might’ve ensued into a wild altercation.” In addition to his professional career, Lipton participates in the Hampton Classic with his horse, Chico. An even more adventurous Lipton is a daring aviator who has navigated perilous flights over some of Alaska’s most unforgiving and intimidating mountain ranges — impressive achievements for any man, and especially for one living that “preposterous sixteen-hour schedule.”

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner Live From Brazil I am in Rio de Janeiro right now, writing to you from my gorgeous apartment on Ipanema Beach. I just finished lifting weights while looking out at the ocean and going for a long run, passing by bikini after bikini, peddlers of aqua de coco and a seemingly endless parade of people walking the streets wearing hats, drinking chopp, dancing to Samba music and smiling. I and three friends, one of them being Pentagon John from grade school, are all pretty stunned. Last night was spent dancing at one of the most famous nightclubs in the world, Nuth (pronounced nooch), until 6 a.m. As the sun rose over Copacabana Beach, we were all still full of energy from the sugar rush of Brazil’s most popular drink, Caparinha, a mix of lime, sugar and rum made from sugar cane. Out of all of the places I have been to in the world, Brazil is the most beautiful in terms of natural beauty and the people that are here. It is not a fluke that the most predominant nationality of Victoria’s Secret models is Brazilian. It is also not a fluke why Mick Jagger came down here and married a Brazilian. The mix of genetics here is tremendous — Italians, Germans, Portuguese and Africans — and when you combine that with all the other gorgeous people in the world who come to settle here, you get gorgeous bodied and tanned human beings with a thirst for life and fresh fruit from the Amazon rainforests. I think my friend Luke said it best. “Every minute here in Brazil is like their fruit, just jam packed with life and goodness.”

The surf culture is alive and well in Rio. Much like the Hamptons, waves come and go, and on our first day there was double overhead that cannot be described as anything but perfect. Barrels flew down the beach as surfers were spit out of them, all crying out in screams of victory as children surfers, envious of the twenty-yearolds with strong enough bodies to match the waves, watched with glee and jumped up and down and pointed. Although I’ve never been much a fan of Latin or Samba music, in Brazil, I’m starting to learn. Everything is about music and physical fitness here. Along the beaches are countless makeshift gyms, some just include a dip or pull up bar, while others include weights made out of concrete that you can lift. These are generally up on ledges, where the views of the beach are simply inspiring. On the streets, music is playing no matter where you go, a beer costs $1.50 in US dollars and the roads are clean thanks to a scheme by the government that pays the poor by the pound to collect cans and plastics for recycling. You can buy gasoline at gas stations here, as well as 100% bio-diesel fuel, which costs a lot less and is what most drivers use. On a street corner, a couple might be kissing as

others head towards an outdoor café or the beach. Older couples snuggle together, while younger couples can be caught dancing in public for absolutely no reason other than because they enjoy dancing together. During this week of Carnival in Rio, my friends and I, since day one, can’t figure out if we have just been lucky or if this is just the way it is here. Perfect sunsets over the horizon are met with a block party or parade, where thousands of Brazilians and tourists simply walk, dance and sing together. Everybody here just seems to get it. There are no police sharpshooters on the rooftops or traffic barricades stopping us from going anywhere like there are in the U.S. during major city parades. There doesn’t seem to be much planning to it either. It all just happens and it really is pretty cool. I can’t describe the weight that is lifted off your shoulders here. Everything is okay, looks of judgment are non-existent and all that really matters is that you are happy. It has hit me here in Brazil that really, that is all that matters. On this trip, one of the biggest things that I’ve personally realized is just that. Got to go, Luke just punched me in the stomach, we are headed to a Samba bar.

The Sheltered Islander Sheltered Islander #483 Bait and Switch Associated Press, January 30, 10:49 a.m. EST — “For the mature woman who has everything: a boy toy.” Wanted: rich older women interested in hot younger guys. Applicants must be over 35, earn at least $500,000 a year or have a minimum of $4 million in liquid assets, entrusted assets or divorce settlement. That’s the basis of a speed dating event organized by a New York entrepreneur bringing together twenty “sugar mamas” and twenty “boy toys” vetted by an elite New York matchmaker. “Symbiosis has allowed ugly rich men to attract young, gorgeous, money-hungry women for centuries — it’s now the women’s turn,” proclaims “Sally, you’ve cooked up some crazy ideas before, but this one is crazy enough to actually work.” “I think it has a shot. Single women on the Island complain all the time that there’s no one new to date. Dating on Shelter Island is like playing musical chairs. Everybody is somebody else’s ex. All the men have been recycled.” “That’s true, I’ve cycled through the available Island guys twice. So, the plan is, we send some really rich Island women to this event as bait to lure some of these hot guys back.” “I know two gals, stinkin’ rich. They’ll go to the event if I tell them that the guys are shoe design-

ers who select the women they think are attractive enough to wear their shoes. You know rich people can’t handle rejection. These women will bribe the guys to come to the Island with their goods to see if the shoe fits.” “How do we get rid of the rich women after they get the guys here?” “Simple, we tell them the truth. The men don’t have any designer shoes and worse, they have no money. They’ll drop them like a feral cat at the dump.” “How do we keep the guys on the Island, Sally?” “Ah, that’s where my true genius comes in. We are on an Island after all. We bribe, threaten or blackmail the ferrymen to ban these new guys from the ferries. Next, we find married men with boats to patrol the Island and stifle any escape attempts.” “Married men with boats?” “Of course, they are constantly looking for any excuse to get out of the house before “she who must be obeyed” assigns any chores. Any excuse that gets them on their boat is welcome. By patrolling the waters around the Island and preventing any escapes, they get out of the house and in their boats. If we add beer, it will be perfect.”

By Sally Flynn

“What about if the captives call for help on their cell phones?” “We’ll frisk them for cell phones, or any communication devices, but if one of them manages to make offisland contact, we’ll just stonewall whomever comes. We don’t know anyone by that name or description.” “I love it.” “I’m telling you, it can work. I figure we can keep them here for at least a year. We’ll put them on a rotation list so everybody gets an equal shot at each new guy. If we don’t like them, we just let them go.” “Just like that? What if they report us to the authorities?” “Who’s going to believe that they were held captive on a tiny Island by wild single women? The cops will think they just swallowed too much sea water, or they might get committed. Either way, they’ll never sell the story.” “Gosh, a new man on Shelter Island, wow, it doesn’t happen very often, Sally.” “Yep. I almost feel sorry for the poor slobs. One rotation with the Island gals, won’t be nothin’ left of these boys but their shoelaces.” “Serves them right for trying to marry women just for their money.” “Remember the old saying, when you marry for money, you earn every penny of it.”

acter of the village in any way, and I haven’t turned my house to look lopsided.” Leon pointed to an ambiguous issue: The language of the amendment permits real estate agents to conduct affairs from their homes, and yet excludes art dealers. Village Administrator, Larry Cantwell, disagreed. He stated that the Village Board decided to implement these restrictions to avoid the

use of residential homes as commercial properties and to prevent asymmetrical additions that distort the architecture. “When you are buying and selling art and having openings, that tends to go over the edge of the Village’s intent of preserving the neighborhoods.” Leon responded by saying that it will be difficult for the Village to police and prevent residents from operating non-conforming businesses from their homes. In fact, while it is relatively easy to spot ongoing industrial activities on a residential property, a less conspicuous type of business would be harder to uncover. Village resident Sam Lichtenstein commented, “Look, if it’s an inconspicuous business, well then who cares? We’re more concerned about the gross indiscretions, like welding in the backyard late at night, shooting off sparks and flashes of light that looks like a lightning storm.” In summary, most attendees expressed a desire to retain artist’s studios, writer’s sanctuaries, sculptor’s workshops, and the old-fashioned, single practitioner physician’s office — that is, to preserve the traditional landscape and character of the Hamptons.

up, pinning Brady, if all the offense does is give it back to Brady?” a commentator asked. The Giants led briefly at the start, but after that it was all New England. Never, however, did the Patriots get far enough ahead to feel comfortable. They were always less than a touchdown ahead. It was quite something. The Giants got out in front briefly at the beginning, but after the Patriots got ahead, they stayed ahead for the whole rest of the game, with the exception of the last minute of the game. For you see the Giant defense was still pinning down Brady. As the minutes ticked down, even though the Patriots were still four points in front, Brady was clearly losing his patience. He’d been battered from pillar to post. He’d not been hurt, but he’d surely been shaken and continually surprised from being hit. His numbers were terrible. Nothing he did was any good anymore and you could see the frustration on his face. And then with less than a minute to play, the Giants defense got the ball into the hands of their quarterback for one last try. I am told, because from East Hampton

where I was watching the game I called one of my Boston friends who happened to be watching at First Avenue and 73rd Street in New York, that as the game ended, the entire City of New York burst into spontaneous cries of joy. Eli Manning, having flubbed maybe ten prior attempts, now settled himself and engineered a scoring drive to put the Giants into the lead with just 22 seconds left on the clock. Everybody in our house jumped up and leaped about dancing and cheering. Could Tom Brady bring back the Patriots? It seemed impossible, but miracles for Brady were routine. Instead, the Giants defense once again pounded him into the ground. He threw the ball away. He got sacked for a twelve-yard loss. He threw the ball wide. And, with this Superman of a quarterback just hoping for nothing but to get off the field into the locker room it seemed, he threw one last pass wide and it was over. The Giants had won the Super Bowl! The Giants had won the Super Bowl! I opened the slider to our deck and went out into the cold to get some air.

principal dwelling and that it does not involve structural alterations. Also, the trading of goods, including art related items, is not permitted. The amendment restricts the square footage dedicated to the business operation or professional services to 25% of the total dwelling square footage or 500square feet, whichever is less. The code changes also prohibit commercial mechanical machinery and electrical equipment. Parking on the property is restricted to two vehicles, in addition to the resident’s personal automobiles. An East Hampton property owner, Bob Grau, grumbled, “Hell, someone on my block, who I won’t name, has been running a barber shop. People coming in and out of his house seven days a week, all hours of the day and night. Cars park along the street, sometimes even blocking my driveway. I mean it’s not right.” However, whenever new codes or legislation take effect, the adage, “You can’t please all of the people all of the time” is in the air. Esperanza Leon, an art dealer who has been operating from her home for the past three years, said, “I’m not trying to change the char-

and headed for greatness. This game was important to the Patriots, but it was now meaningless to the Giants. By rights, they should rest the starting players to save them for the playoffs. No sense risking getting them injured in a meaningless game. The Giants talked about it. It would be on national television. They decided to beat the Patriots if they possibly could, and in the event they threw everything they had at them. Of course it was not enough, and the Patriots won, leaving three Giants temporarily on the disabled list after it was over. But the Giants had come very, very close. It was one of the classiest decisions I had ever seen in professional sports. And they won my heart and the hearts of many others. And so the Giants played in the Super Bowl. The only hope was for the Giants defense to bother Tom Brady enough to get him off his game. The Giants’ defense had improved dramatically as the season wore on. If they could flush out Tom Brady, they could give their shaky offense a chance. It was their only hope. And that, as everyone knew they would, is what they tried to do. And, from the get-go, they succeeded. They had Tom Brady, unflappable as he was, pinned. Meanwhile, the young Giant quarterback Eli Manning, a wet behind the ears fellow with the personality of Hamlet if you ask me, blew one offensive opportunity after another. Late in the second quarter, it appeared that he did not even want to be out there. He threw the ball towards the stands. He dropped it and picked it up then dropped it again. He threw an interception. Maybe it was just me, but I thought he was terrified. Certainly he had entirely lost his concentration. “How long can the Giant defense keep this

and I suspect the power and cable companies, have the right to string wires wherever the hell they want without regard to state, county, village and town objections. If you are a human being and want the power to go on when you flip the switch, the power company has to be able to make the rules, and they do. Thank God, and thank you thank you thank you power company for your kindness and understanding and mercy in this important decision. And so we move on to the next LIPA project — the power lines in front of my house, and in front of the neighbors’ houses on each side of me, two to the right and one to the left. Some years ago, I stated in this newspaper that the power lines in front of my house are a horrendous blot on the community in which we live. On one side are our four houses, spaced out for about a quarter of a mile along the road, and on the other side of the power lines is Three Mile Harbor with the boats rocking in their slips, with the hills of Northwest and beautiful evergreen woods with the sun setting beyond. It’s such a beautiful view at cocktail time. We have long since gotten used to seeing this beautiful view of the sunset with the power lines going across, but as I have reviewed the photographs I have taken of the sunset over the harbor over the years since I bought the

Sketch of Sag Harbor Turnpike with more wires.

place in 1975, it is quite apparent that the wires have grown alarmingly, both in count and thickness, into unacceptable ropes. This is without a doubt because of the proliferation in telephone companies, cable TV services, Internet connections and power needs to the folks beyond us up the street who do not enjoy this view because of a deep wood that happens to be there (but not here). Until now we have been happy to allow this, but enough is enough. I cannot speak for the others because so far I have not contacted any of the others, but I can assure you that when I do speak to them they will all agree that this quarter of a mile of thick wiring must come down and be put underground. We are talking four telephone poles along this stretch. That is all it is. What

is the holdup? I did brooch this subject in this newspaper a few years ago, trying to get everybody behind the plan to get the telephone poles and wires in front of my house taken down, but the attempt did fizzle. Now, however, with the current success in Water Mill, I call all readers to arms once more. It is an important thing that when I write these articles looking out across the water at the sunset, that I do so without some damn snakes up there bouncing up and down in the wind. In other parts of town, most notably the richer sections south of the highway, the wires are underground and I have little doubt that every one of us on the power grid, not just those who receive this perk, are paying for it. It hardly seems fair that as I write the checks to LIPA every month, sitting in my house looking out, I have to look out at enormous and dangerous power cables while these others can sit and look out at unobstructed views. If you would like to join the TAKE DOWN THE WIRES OBSTRUCTING DAN RATTINER’S VIEW OF THE HARBOR AND PUT THEM UNDERGROUND ACTION COMMITTEE (tdtwodrvothaptuac), just write me a letter here at Dan’s Papers, 2221 Montauk Highway, Bridgehampton, NY 11932. And don’t use the Internet, please. It will only tempt them to put up even thicker wires. I don’t want that. •

else would use this passage to get to the oil. And that they would be kept out.” He took his hands off the wheel to motion with his hands to indicate where the various countries were in all this. “Then after the World War, the Russians came and took over Azerbaijan from the Germans, and that’s when they named it that. They made it a province of the Soviet Union. It had no name at all before that. It was just the Azerbaijan Turks.” “So what happened?” “After the Soviets left, Azerbaijan became independent. And it allied itself both with the Turks and the Europeans. But the Russians were now alarmed because they were out of the picture. So they sided with us and helped us claim a certain part of the land that was 80% Armenian and had been part of Azerbaijan. So war broke out. It was all about the oil in the south.” “Keep your hands on the wheel, please.” “Sorry. So now that area is 100% Armenian, no Azerbaijans there at all, but they had a vote, one man one vote in Azerbaijan, and the province was outvoted so it remains in Azerbaijan.” “When did you come here?” “Ten years ago.” “So were you in the war?” “No, I left. Came to America. Who needs that politics?” There was an article in the New York Times that morning about a celebration that was going to take place in the town of Ljubljana, Slovenia, a few days later to celebrate the 116th birthday of Josip Tito, the previous dictator of Yugoslavia. People are coming from all over for this.

Yugoslavia broke up into little pieces after Tito died and separated into the little tiny countries of Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, which is what they are today. The Times reporter interviewed some of the tens of thousands of people who are coming for this from all of the little countries that used to be Yugoslavia. “I miss Yugoslavia,” said a Mr. Troha from Slovenia. “It’s no fun living in a little tiny country. We were 30 million people. We didn’t have anything, but we had everything. The whole world knew Yugoslavia.” “The Yugoslav passport was the best in the world, and you could travel anywhere,” said Mr. Vrbic, another Slovenian. Tito founded Yugoslavia in 1946 amidst the wreckage that was World War II. He held it together as a new country modeled after the Soviet Union, for the next thirty- four years until he died. He was a dictator, yes. But as he ran it as a communist country, everybody was equal and all the different cultures were welcome everywhere. “As far as I am concerned, I am still a citizen of Yugoslavia,” said Flasko Gabric of Serbia. “Today we have democracy and nothing in our pockets.” It was pointed out that nobody in Yugoslavia had very much in their pockets either. “In Yugoslavia, people had fun,” said Peter Lovsin, who was the lead singer in a punk band in the former Yugoslavia. “It was a system for lazy people. If you were good or bad, you still got

paid. Also, you got free education and free health care. Now, everything is about money, and this is not good for small people.” People really do miss Yugoslavia. They are coming to this celebration, all of Ljubljana is decked out for it, around a statue of Tito in the town square, with flags, posters, books and lots of other memorabilia. There will be bottles of Cockta, the Yugoslav Coca Cola. There will even be Tito impersonators. And many are arriving by driving in the old and awful Fico automobiles that were made in Russian-built Yugoslav factories for thirty of those thirty-four years. You may remember these cars. After Tito died, the factories shut down and the country opened up. Then, some American entrepreneurs bought the plants, renamed the cars Yugos, started up the assembly lines and, for a couple of years, produced this boxy car that was sold in America as the cheapest car you could buy, and it was. It was also the most falling-apart new car you could buy. It is universally regarded today as the worst car ever made. But people still have them. Mostly in garages with parts missing. And they love them. It really is tough to be from a tiny country. And there are a whole slew of new ones, hanging like barnacles off the underbelly of Russia from the western shore of the Black Sea to the Pacific. They used to be just the Muslim provinces in the old Soviet Union. But now they are independent — Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan. Do they still study geography in grammar school? Or have they just thrown up their hands and given up on all of this? •

Winter Fest Has a Jazzy Sound This Year It started off as Winter Wine Fest a few years ago, but now it’s called Long Island Winterfest—a winter-time festival that is intended to entice people to visit wine country during the sometimesslow, desolate month of February. Organized by the Long Island Wine Council, East End Arts Council, Suffolk County Department of Economic Development and Workforce Housing, and Long Island Convention and Visitors Bureau — with support from

American Express and WLIU, this year’s Winterfest has “Jazz on the Vine” as its theme. And while wine is far from the focus here, there are plenty of attractions and special offers of interest. I still think the old Wine Passport program was a good idea. Winterfest 2008 kicks off on February 8, with a performance by Papo Vazquez at Martha Clara Vineyards, and will run through March 9. As one would expect with “Jazz on the Vine” as the theme, the program will feature a series of free jazz con-

Several East End hotels and Bed and Breakfasts are offering special pricing on accommodations. Some specials include: The Inn & Spa at East Wind in Wading River is offering a discounted rate of $139 per night. The Harvest Inn B&B, one of my favorite spots on the North Fork, is offering special rates on their beautiful rooms along with a custom wine tour. For an upscale wine country escape, Jedediah Hawkins Inn is featuring a rate of weekday $290/weekend $315 for their designer showcase rooms. Each room has a working fireplace, queen size pillow top bed, a private bathroom and a flat screen TV. Several winery tour companies, including Vintage Tours (a personal favorite), are offering special packages if you’d rather not assign a designated driver. And, a few East End restaurants will feature Winterfest specials too. Even if you don’t take advantage of any of the Winterfest goings on, this is a great time to visit local wine country. The crowds, which can be suffocating in the summer or during harvest season, have retreated. That means that the tasting rooms will be much less hectic and you’ll get to taste local bottlings in a more relaxed atmosphere and at a much slower pace. You may even get to meet the winemaker or winery owners, which always adds to the experience. Get out and taste Long Island, if not now, soon.

Valentine’s Day And The Ferris Wheel Enjoy Those North Fork Fairs? Well Your’e Not Gonna Believe This Coney Island never saw anything like that. Today, February 14, is also International Ferris Wheel Day. So move over, Cupid. If it’s true we’re all kids at heart, then fairs, a circus, amusement parks, delight us. Let’s see what giddy, gaudy memories North Forkers have of rides and clowns and cotton candy on this February day, Ferris Wheel Day. The North Fork has its share of fairs – in Greenport, Mattituck, Jamesport and Riverhead to name a few. And of course Greenport is home to that glorious yearround carousel. How special is that! According to Deidre Hawkins, who works in Riverhead, that town’s autumn Country Fair is tops. Deidre is candid enough to say her cooking is only adequate (she does make a good macaroni and cheese taco). So Deidre confesses she goes to the fair mainly for the food. You know, the usual hot dogs and hamburgers, plus jams, breads, funnel cake, donuts, sausage and kielbasa. Some vendors concentrate on foreign food – Italian, Spanish, Polish, Mexican, the list goes on. So Deidre has to make some delicious decisions. Often Mark, Deidre’s husband, accompanies her along with Deidre’s cousins. Of course, always with her is Ryan, Deidre’s not-quite-kindergarten son. Ryan checks out the kiddy rides and then gives full attention to big-people rides. All those fire trucks on display. From little Ryan, we move on to a big guy. He’s Walter Berry of Southold. You may know him as a

super plumber. Walter’s an integral part of Peconic Plumbing, but he does take time off occasionally, and always on the days of the Greenport Maritime Festival. That festival, a September tradition drawing over 20,000 visitors each year, is Walter’s favorite. Walter’s wife and three children, Brittney, Samantha and Noah, are festival fans, too. What do they like most about the festival? The tall ships, of course. They come from all over the East Coast. And the harbor has fishing contests, live music, arts and crafts demonstrations. It’s a sure bet two-yearold Noah loves the Greenport Pirates. In costume, the pirate troupe sails into Greenport and then roams the town – causing all kinds of mischief. Don’t forget the carousel. Noah likes lots of rides on that. And Daddy Walter? He likes the festival’s chowder contests and eating the baked clams. Walter, a modest fellow usually, was quick to reveal he’s a chowdermaker and serves up his own baked clams. “You’ll never have a better one,” says Walter. That’s it. The sights, sounds, tastes, smells of a fairground. Young and old enjoy it all, especially that big wheel Mr. Ferris gave us back in 1893. Let’s face it. You don’t see Eiffel Towers all over the place. Whereas a Ferris Wheel is always spinning somewhere in this happy world. Even good old Vienna boasts a giant wheel in its Prater amusement park. So the North Fork toasts George Washington Ferris on this February 14. Oh, yes, and Cupid, too.


By Phyllis Lombardi February 14 is for lovers. That’s what they say. Those who sell Valentine cards, flowers, candy, jewelry. Now I like all that, especially the jewelry, most especially when the jewelry is earrings. If, however, you are without a lover, or perhaps even worse, without candy, take heart. February 14 celebrates something else. I discovered it recently and in a rather roundabout way. In what turned out to be one great book, Erik Larson’s The Devil in the White City, I learned much about the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. The planning, the cost, the difficulties faced by Chicago’s movers and shakers. The bitter winter wind off Lake Michigan, the spring mud, the heat of summer. And the names connected with the fair – Frederick Law Olmstead, Buffalo Bill Cody, Daniel Burnham, Teddy Roosevelt, Helen Keller and H.H. Holmes. That last guy has the distinction of being the first acknowledged serial killer in the United States. Also introduced at the fair were Quaker Oats, Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix and the Ferris Wheel. I know enough about oatmeal and pancakes, I guess, but I knew nothing about the Ferris Wheel. That’s why today, February 14, is important. It’s the birthday of George Washington Ferris. Born in Pennsylvania, Ferris met the Chicago World’s Fair challenge. To design and build something more exciting and dramatic than France’s Eiffel Tower, introduced to the world only a year before the Chicago fair opened. Build it he did. George’s wheel was big indeed. Every car suspended from it held 60 people. Sixty!

DAN'S PAPERS, February 8, 2008 Page 36

Dan’s North Fork

Birds Of A Feather The History Behind The North Fork Audobon Society By Karma Hope I remember the day my brother, Mckay, came home with a bird feeder. He hung it in a tree outside our living room window, filled it with appropriate bird fare and sat down to watch. Mckay was always doing things like this (the stories I could tell), so the rest of us just chalked this up as another phase. He could be found most afternoons when school was over, staring at his bird feeder through the window. He would call whoever was at home to hurry over when a bird was actually utilizing his new toy to share the moment with him. The thing is, after awhile, I found myself lying on the couch watching the bird feeder too. Watching such a simple act of nature brought with it an amazing sense of peace and contentment. But how does such a simple act turn into an entire culture out on the North Fork? Believe it or not, bird watching goes back for generations. In 1886, The National Audubon Society was founded by George Cird Grinnel. It is one of the oldest and most well known environmental organizations in the United States. It was named after John James Audubon, an American Ornithologist. He was the illegitimate son of a French sea captain and plantation owner; his mother was a Creole chambermaid who died a few months after his birth. He was educated in France and later came to live with his father on his estate, “Mill Grove” near Philadelphia. It was there that Audubon’s love of birds began to grow. He spent the rest of his life watching and studying birds to the point that he had a difficult time keeping a job and providing for his family. In 1826, Audubon traveled to England in search of a publisher for his collection of drawings and studies on American birds. Finally, his life’s work, The Birds of America, was

published in parts from 1827 to 1838. George Grinnel was appalled by the mass destruction of birds he was witnessing around him. The great Auk, in particular, was driven to extinction due to their habit of flocking closely together, easily being killed in large numbers. Birds were being killed in mass numbers as a food source and the feathers, plumes, and occasionally entire birds could be found adorning women’s apparel. Inspired by Audubon’s contributions, Grinnel created an organization devoted to protecting wild birds and their eggs. In the first year alone, The Audubon Society gained 39,000 members. Bolstered by the support of President Theodore Roosevelt, an avid hunter, naturalist, and Audubon sympathizer, laws to protect our nation’s birds soon were being passed, including it being illegal to sell the plumes of native birds. The North Fork Audubon Society is a local chapter

of The National Audubon Society and covers the entire North Fork of Long Island from Jamesport to Orient Point. “We promote the preservation of birds and wildlife by protecting and restoring critical habitats of Long Island’s North Fork,” say its leaders. Monthly meetings are held on the second Friday of each month in the Red House Nature Center at 7:30 p.m. The goal of The North Fork Audubon Society is to bring individuals closer to nature, increase education regarding this area’s environment and the animals that share it. The members of the society have created and maintain a 1.5-mile trail meandering through 50 acres of picturesque parkland. The trails are open daily for hiking and enjoying from dawn until dusk. Due to the importance the North Fork Audubon Society places on education, especially nurturing the next generation in preparation to care for our nation’s wildlife, a children’s program is held on the second Saturday of every month at 11 a.m. In February, the children’s program will be oriented around how the winter months affect the local wildlife, looking for signs of wildlife along the trail and creating a winter mural. Classes, programs, field trips, nature walks, luncheons and many other events are hosted by the society for adults, families and anyone interested in learning more about the wildlife in the area and how we can make a positive impact. The North Fork Audubon Society is always looking to increase their number of eager volunteers, members, or gain donations to further the cause. For more information, see their web site to learn more about ways to get involved and make a difference. Sometimes looking at the birds is just what you need.

DAN'S PAPERS, February 8, 2008 Page 38

After spending his whole life filming independent movies, Albert Maysles, 81, is now coming out with his first book of both still photographs and cinemagraphs from 40 of his films. About 75 of these framed photos and cinemagraphs from his movies will be on display at the Kasher Gallery in Soho through March 15, with an opening reception on February 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. On the cover of this 374-page book, entitled, A. Maysles Scrapbook, is one of his favorite subjects – the dramatic and colorful “Little Edie” Beale from his original cult movie, Grey Gardens. When he made this movie in East Hampton in 1976, the Beales were little-known characters who caught his eye with their unique Bohemian lifestyle, unlike their Kennedy relatives who traveled in elite social circles. Maysles was the first to bring their untold story to life on the big screen, and then years later, their story was told again with the hit Broadway show Grey Gardens. Although this show recently closed on Broadway, Maysles said there are “rumors” about it going to London. And Steven Kasher, owner of Kasher Gallery, has invited another client, Jessica Lange, to attend his opening for the Maysles show, since Lange is starring as “Big Edie” in a new feature film that is being made about Grey Gardens, which also stars Drew Barrymore as “Little Edie.” “Jessica Lange is also a photographer in her own right, so we are hoping she will be dropping by for Albert’s show,” said Kasher, who got the idea to collect Maysles’ photos and put them in a book and an exhibit. He said he was first inspired by Maysles’ movie

Little Edie in "The best outfit for today." From Grey Gardens , 1975

Gimme Shelter, about the Rolling Stones as they appeared at Madison Square Garden and at Altamont. “This, to me, is the best film about the music scene in the 1960s and 70s,” he said. “I think Albert really captured the essence of that era, and the turbulence of the times.” Kasher and Sara Maysles (Albert’s daughter), went through his archives to select the most appropriate photographs for their project, along with Michael Chaiken, who also helped them edit the book. They selected a photo of Albert and his brother David Maysles on their motorcycles in Moscow’s Red Square, for the back cover of the book, and also a photo of Tina Turner from Gimme Shelter for the spine of the book. The A. Maysles Scrapbook was published by Steidl Publishers of German, and sells for $60. Albert Maysles’ long-time friend and legendary director Martin Scorsese, wrote the introduction for the book. Maysles said he first met Scorcese when he got out of film school and came to Maysles’ studio in

CLASSIC CARS Let’s be honest, even thought this column is called “Classic Cars,” I have to admit that in many ways new cars, in general, are better than old cars. By better I mean that the cars of today handle better and are much more dependable. In some cases they excel in build quality, but they do have their weaknesses. But, all automobiles today are much safer than cars of the past. It may be stating the obvious that new cars are better than old, but in a few ways older cars have it over the new cars on the block. More on that later. Now, lets talk about NEW. What’s really different from the old cars in most new vehicles today are the advancements of all sorts of electronic subsystems. Electric windows, air conditioning and hi-fi radios (to use fifties’ jargon) have been around for decades in automobiles, and, in their day, were truly advanced technology found mainly in American cars. These amenities, common in American cars in the fifties, were unusual for any European manufacturer to offer in their products. In fact, power steering, de rigueur in American iron, was rare indeed in anything produced in Europe. The world’s leading European sports cars built by Mercedes, Porsche and Ferrari never offered these luxury accessories in their products during that era, which was strange, considering one could order virtually any American car with all of them. I always remember sitting in congested Manhattan traffic on a summer’s day in my black ‘64 Ferrari 250 Lusso coupe sweating to death, jealous of the guy in the air conditioned four-door Buick next to me. Today, cars have a really impressive array of electronics buried within their bodywork. Mini

New York, to do some work with him. “Some months ago, he filmed the Rolling Stones at the Beacon Theater in New York with about eighteen 35mm cameras, and he asked me to come with my video camera,” said Maysles. “I filmed and he shot it as well, and he is now editing and making his own film about it.” Kasher explained that Maysles’ new photo exhibit is divided into two segments. There are about 50 of his early black and white still photographs, mostly taken in Russia and Turkey during the mid1950s. Maysles made his first film about a mental hospital in 1955 in Russia, and then he retraced the travels of Saint Paul in Turkey. The second part of his new exhibit features about 25 “cinemagraphs,” which are actual footage of his many films that have been scanned and blown up into limited edition prints in both color and black and white. These images range in size from 16 by 20 inches to 14 by 60 inches, and range in price from $2,500 to $5,000 a piece. Included in Maysles’ new show will be photos and cinemagraphs of such famous people as Marlon Brando, Truman Capote, Sophia Loren, Orson Welles, the Rolling Stones and the Beatles. There will also be photos of Albert Maysles’ children that he took when they were sleeping in different positions. Maysles is now working on an autobiographical film about his life, a film about young children, and another film called In Transit, which takes place on trains around the world.

1950 Jaguar XK-120

computers are everywhere in a modern automobile. The computer that controls the running of the engine is actually called the “Brain.” The braking system, suspension, transmission and climate control are all governed by a mini computer. It seems the more expensive the car, the smarter it is. What about the Lexus that parks itself? This expensive car went to Harvard. The latest craze is one that started in military airplanes – GPS. Cars are becoming so smart, that eventually they will probably drive themselves. As you know, one manufacturer has even given his silly looking little car the pompous name, “The Smart Car.” There is one problem making cars so smart with miles of wires interconnected to various computers and subsystems. It’s called dependability. I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but many manufacturers offer really long drive train warranties. Not bumper-to-bumper, but only engine, transmission and running gear guarantees. Why? Because today, most car engines and assorted mechanical pieces have been so well developed over the last one hundred years that they are extremely dependable. What usually goes wrong in new cars are the elec-

tronics. When an electronic gizmo goes haywire it can either be a slight annoyance or stop a car dead in the water. One good thing, new cars are so smart, with the correct equipment, a mechanic can plug into the car and the car can diagnose itself and tell the mechanic what’s making it ill. Like I said earlier, cars today are very dependable, but when something goes wrong with them, they are usually expensive to repair, most likely not covered after the bumper-to-bumper warranty has expired, or an electronic problem you never knew existed. Which brings me back to the charm of older cars. Boy, were they simple. No computers, no plastic, just ground huggin’ metal. When you opened the hood, you could actually see the engine. Amazingly, you could change the spark plugs yourself. It has been said that if the carburetor was invented after fuel injection, everyone would marvel at its design efficiency and simplicity. There is also something about older car aesthetics that has stood the test of time. There are few cars today that will blow your mind with their beauty 50 years from now. Take my old Ferrari Lusso. What about a 1950 Jaguar XK-120 or XK-E, or a Mercedes 300SL Gullwing, or for that matter a ‘55 T-Bird or 1940 Lincoln Continental, or a little 1940 Ford Coupe? In retrospect, these cars, even though the best and most beautiful of their era, don’t compare technically to anything on the road today. They had a certain magic about them. A timeless sense of beauty that I believe is rare today in many of the whiz-kid cars currently in production. Maybe that’s the appeal of all the retro cars. There are certainly enough of them. Wait fifty years. Bob Gelber, an automotive journalist. You can email him at

Paint foam side of stamp with desired color. 2. Press down gently, but firmly onto foam notebook, folder or diary cover. 3. Decorate with different stamps and colors. 4. Use paint brush to touch up any empty spots. 5. Let dry completely. Heart-Shaped Wall Hanging Materials: Pink, red and white tissue paper, cut into little squares Glue Scissors Piece of thick construction paper

Directions: 1. Cut out a heart shape from the construction paper. 2. Spread glue on the heart. 3. Wad up the tissue paper squares and press them directly onto the glue. 4. Glue a hanger or a magnet strip to the back of the heart. Valentine Pouch Materials: Red construction paper Crayons, markers, features, glitter, stamps Scissors Glue Directions: 1. Cut two identical heart shapes out of the construction paper. 2. Write “to” and “from” on one of the hearts and decorate both sides. 3. Spread glue along the undecorated sides of one of the hearts.

Add a few drops of red food coloring to one bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed. You should have one bowl of pink icing and one bowl of white. 4. Start decorating! After frosting your cupcakes, use decorating gels to create a border (use contrasting colors – pink on white frosting, white on pink frosting) add sprinkles, heart shapes, swirls or write words such as “hug” or “love.” 5. Store your cupcakes in a tightly covered container so they do not harden or go stale. – Sharon Feiereisen

Foods to Keep You Frisky Valentine’s Day is near and preparations for a romantic evening with your partner should be in place. Reservations at one of the Hamptons’ many great restaurants could be your catalyst for a lusty evening. Or perhaps you’ve decided on a home-cooked affair, candlelit and overlooking the Atlantic from your dining room. Regardless of your choice to dine in or out, what should you and your partner eat to prepare for that night in the bedroom? Aphrodisiac foods are where it’s at. These foods are named for the Goddess of Sensuality herself and rightfully so – sexually enhancing properties have been recorded in some foods for thousands of years. While many of these foods rely on folklore to back up claims, some have been analyzed in modern times and have scientific support. Here are some key aphrodisiac foods to look for to amp up the passion. Oysters – This could be the number one aphrodisiac food for an East Ender. The myth of oysters likely began because of its appearance, often likened to female sex organs. One study heralds the high amounts of zinc in oysters and zinc-rich food consumption’s correlation to a healthy libido and proper erectile function. Another suggests that the flavanoids in oysters stimulate reproductive organs. Compared to other aphrodisiacs, there is not a hefty scientific literature to back up this food, but the power of the mind and myth should not be overlooked. Additionally, what’s sexier than great tasting food? And what’s tastier than food that is both local and fresh? Oysters have a rich Long Island history and are still harvested in the waters here today. The taste of this delicate sea creature is highly dependent on where it grows and LI oysters are prized for their nutrition and taste. Chili Peppers – Spicy foods are undoubtedly powerful and quite pleasurable for those with the stomach for them. Hyped in Europe five hundred years ago as an aphrodisiac, chili peppers’ reputation still reigns in the mid-east today. Possessing a chemical that can stimulate nerve endings and increase pulse rate, ordering a dish with chili peppers can get a person roaring for that time between the sheets. Endorphins may be triggered as well, producing a high that is similar to sex. Asparagus – These long, woody stems are another item on the list that gained its sexenhancing reputation from their look. This vegetable is one of the first of the season to appear, evoking feelings of spring vitality in its very essence. Some early spears will be appearing on the market by Valentine’s Day, so it is a perfect, fresh addition to that romantic meal. Science is on the side of asparagus too. Nutrient dense, this veggie is helpful in proper hormone production and stimulates metabolic function, thereby upping sex drive. For an extrasensory experience (especially if your partner and you are at home), try eating in the classical way – forgo cutlery. Alcohol – Yes, alcohol is often touted for its sex appeal to boost marketing campaigns, but that is certainly not a reason to overlook. Overconsumption can lead to problems for male perkiness, but a glass or two each is sure to lower either gender’s inhibitions, calming anxieties, easing talk of later plans, and exciting one another. Choose red wine and get the added benefit of free radical reduction. Keep a focus on the wine’s scent to get other senses involved in the play. Chocolate – Aztecs believed that men were

stimulated after consuming chocolate, while females were less inhibited. This may be linked to the release of phenylethylamine and serotonin in the body when chocolate is eaten. These chemicals provide increased energy and feelings of happiness, both essential for that lusty evening. In a poll, women said they would rather eat chocolate than have sex, so let us not doubt its special place in the human psyche – just ensure to indulge your lover

with both instead of offering a one-or-the-other option. Coffee – Your stomachs may be full, but adding a cup of coffee as an after-dinner treat will surely whet your sexual appetite. The end of a meal often brings on lethargy, so do not fill up completely and use some of coffee’s stimulating power to promote increased longevity. Studies show that it is particularly effective in women who are not frequent drinkers, upping their sex drive, particularly for multiple sessions. So, inhale that coffee aroma and drink up! The night is just beginning. – Elizabeth Geras

The Rich Tradition of Chocolate chocolate is no longer reserved only for the rich. However, for Grace Davidson, a distributor for Godiva on the East End and owner of Double Rainbow, a fine chocolate shop in Water Mill, quality is critical. “When I do have chocolate it’s gotta be a good piece, like Godiva,” she said. “Chocolate is a cheap luxury. I can’t afford a BMW, but I can treat myself to a piece of chocolate.” The explanation for society’s addiction to chocolate is that eating simple, sweet, high-fat foods like chocolate cause the body to release serotonin, making a person feel happier. This resulting feeling of well-being is what causes women to flock to the magical powers of chocolate each month during cycles of hormonal changes. But this is just the beginning of chocolate’s health benefits. A new study reported in Life Extentions magazine, from the Ninewells Hospital in Scotland, reported that dark chocolate has the potential to reduce cardiovascular diseases. Thirty subjects received 100 grams of white chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate. Four hours later, blood samples showed that the dark chocolate inhibited platelet clumping, a major cause of blood clots, by 92%. (Blood clots are a major contributor of heart attacks and strokes.)

It has a 2,000-year-old history of cultural and medicinal uses. It soothes and it comforts the soul. And by the way, it tastes great. Chocolate is one of the many traditions associated with Valentine’s Day. Candy shops thrive during February as significant others buy boxes of chocolates for their sweethearts as an expression of love and devotion. Not only is chocolate known as a way to the heart, but research now shows that it may literally be a route to heart health. Chocolate played a major role in ancient celebrations not to mention the everyday lives of common folk. Mayans and Aztecs discovered cocoa in the rainforests of Central America 2,000 years ago. The Maya began to grow it themselves. They made the cacao seeds into a paste, mixed it with herbs and drank it at social events. Members of the Mexican royalty not only drank chocolate, but they offered cacao seeds to the gods and served chocolate drinks at religious ceremonies. During the conquest of Mexico in 1521, the Spanish shared in the pleasure of chocolate and began to ship cacao seeds back to Europe. Spaniards added sugar and cinnamon to the paste, resulting in an international sweet phenomenon. Chocolate was a sign of wealth in Europe because cacao and sugar were such expensive imports, and so the cacao trade was full blown, as the world discovered the secret of cacao. In modern times chocolate is not only readily available, it is the most frequently craved food in the United States. Chocoholics lurk in every household and are welcomed warmly and without judgment into chocolate shops nationwide. Unlike the old days,

Chocolate has another ingredient, theobromine, that has been shown to stop a persistent cough and may lead to more effective cough medicines. Scientists have found that theobromine works better than codeine to stop a cough. It suppresses vagus nerve activity, which is responsible for causing a cough. Still another health benefit of chocolate is that it is high in antioxidants, which reduce, neutralize and prevent the damage done to the body by free radicals – electrons that are no longer attached to atoms. These antioxidants prevent some of the cell damage, thus helping us to look younger and stay healthier. Even with all the health benefits of chocolate, it still probably isn’t a good idea to scarf down a half dozen Hershey bars every day. As with any other indulgence, moderation is the rule. Just a small square of dark chocolate for dessert can quell a craving and provide health benefits. That’s the recommendation, but chocolate lovers like Rita Del Rey of Going Nuts candy shop in Southampton make their own rules. “I love chocolate because it’s delicious, satisfying and it makes me feel good,” she said. “I eat it every day.” – Lauren Isenberg

Datehampton: Hamptonite Tested, Cupid Approved You may not be able to buy love on eBay, but don’t give up on the Internet just yet. Online dating websites are no longer viewed as venues for the desperate. In fact, they’ve entered the mainstream. Sure, they can seem overwhelming, but here on the East End, offers a local, user-friendly service – and so far the lovelorn love it. David Rattiner, President and CEO of, came up with the idea to start the local dating website two years ago while looking for love online himself. “I was using and got frustrated when so many girls from Connecticut appeared in my search results,” he said. “All I really cared about was finding girls from the city or the Hamptons.” That’s when a light bulb went off, and Rattiner, along with business partner Leif Neubauer, launched The two worked together to create a networking site where singles from Manhattan to the Hamptons could link together without weeding through out-of-state profiles and other distractions. Currently, has over 250 active users and is responsible for over a dozen love connections. Becoming a member on is easy. Just click on “register” and sign up at no cost. “The first month is free, so members can try the site before making a commitment,” explained Rattiner. “Then it costs $8.95 a month, which is less than half the price of other dating websites, and I believe offers a better service.” Once registered, members have the opportunity

to create a profile where they can post pictures and other details about themselves, including interests and what they’re looking for in a potential mate. Members have full access to the database of singles, and can search using criteria ranging from age, gender and location, to religion, hair color and favorite foods. When an appealing possible match is found, he or she can be contacted by sending a message. “I’ve been running the site for almost two years and have found that it not only works, but is probably the easiest way to meet someone out here,” said Rattiner.’s first success story happened in its first few months of existence when Genevieve Salamone, 24, of Shirley was contacted by Jason Horsburgh, 25, of Bridgehampton. After exchanging messages, the two met at Nichol’s in East Hampton and have been together ever since. “I’m so grateful to for giving me the opportunity to meet my sweetheart,” said Salamone. “Jason and I are so happy and in love, and I think everyone should give this website a chance, because you just never know.” What truly separates from other online dating services is its local focus. “When using, members know they are dealing with good, local people who offer excellent customer service,” said Rattiner. “Leif and I take the website very seriously, and work hard to help people find their perfect match.” The site also offers testimonials from a mix of people in the Hamptons community with diverse backgrounds, professions and ages.

T.J. Clemente, 54, of Montauk joined for two reasons – he is single and a friend recommended the service. Clemente, a father of two, admitted that it’s hard to meet single women his age in the Hamptons. “I have gone on a few dates with women I met through the site, and although nothing serious has come from it, I believe it is an excellent vehicle for meeting people on the East End.” Rattiner noted that has adopted a highway in Southampton and frequently sponsors parties at local clubs and bars, but that word of mouth is the reason most members join. “We get new members of all ages every day, mostly through recommendations from existing members,” he said. “The steady flow of new users keeps the site interesting.” Advertising account executive Gayle Polansky, 25, of Manhattan spends her summer weekends in Southampton and has been a member of for over a year. She said at first, she joined just for fun, but was pleasantly surprised when she met someone from East Hampton last summer with whom she still keeps in touch. “It’s easier than meeting someone in a bar or club,” said Polansky. “If someone sends you a message you can check them out before responding. There’s no pressure.” If you’re too busy or shy to meet someone, or if you just feel like you’re missing out on all the romance the Hamptons has to offer, check out Who knows, maybe that special someone is only a mouse click away. – Janine Cheviot

Discover (or Rediscover) Your Partner One theme of February is love and during the beautiful and charming stillness of the East End’s winter months local couples take time to appreciate their romances by discovering or re-discovering their love for each other. Noreen and Edward Hoctor of Southampton have been married for fifty-two years. “We enjoy visiting thrift shops in Sag Harbor and then having lunch,” said Edward. “Sag Harbor has some of the best thrift stores.” Shops like the Dominican Sisters on Washington Street in Sag Harbor are open through the winter and are a great place to browse. Even during the off-season, some people continue to travel east for romantic adventures. That includes Tracey and Brian Frezza of Commack, who have been married for eleven years. “We love to take long drives and go hiking together,” said Brian. The couple drives all the way out to Montauk to hike Napeague, often stopping for sushi at Sakura House in East Quogue or picking up a sandwich from Cromer’s market in Noyac. “As long as the sun is shining, we enjoy this adventure all year long. It is much easier to do in the winter time because there is no traffic,” added Tracey. According to researchers at the University of Prisa in Italy, discovering differences in the beginning of a relationship is the exciting part, when that “two peas in a pod” feeling develops. To keep that feeling alive, couples can recreate the newness by continuing to learn new things about their partner. The East End offers many interesting venues,where new and old couples can get to know each other all over again. Rachel Marzano, 23, of East Quogue, just began

dating her boyfriend Jesse. “For next week, I’m planning a surprise date to the bowling alley. On Saturday night they turn out the lights and have a DJ. It’s so much fun to do corny stuff like that,” she said. Westhampton Bowling has “Glow Ball” on Saturday nights from 8-12 p.m. Bowling is a great way for a couple to challenge each other and be silly at the same time. “I also want to take him to bingo,” said Rachel. Tom McBrien’s Pub in Hampton Bays holds bingo on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. and it’s a fun night out for couples of all ages in the Hamptons. “If we win the pot we can spend the money on a fancy dinner,” said Rachel. A great way to bond with your partner is at a yoga class. “Partner yoga can help you to connect with your partner’s and your own needs, relieve tension and promote relaxation. And it’s fun!” said Kate Buhler, owner of Peconic River Yoga in Riverhead, where there will be a partner yoga workshop on February 9 from 2-3:30 p.m. Call ahead of time to sign up. Also, there will be a partner yoga workshop at Transform Yoga in Westhampton Beach on February 17 from 1-4 p.m. Reservations required. Another fun date this time of year, when people tend to stay inside, is to take a cooking class. At

Loaves and Fishes Cooking School in Bridgehampton, attendees have a hands-on experience learning to cook a new dish, while drinking wine and having fun. This month’s classes have themes like “Tapas Party,” “Romance in Rio” and “A Taste of Spain.” Language classes provide a great way to learn something new and useful with your partner. Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton offers a Spanish class for beginners on Wednesday evenings. If language seems intimidating, maybe learning about wine is more palatable. One of the many beautiful sites along the countryside of the South Fork is Wölffer Estate Vineyards in Sagaponack. It is open through the winter for wine tastings that include live music and cheese on Thursdays from 5-7:30 p.m. The beauty of nature is not a hard thing to come by in the Hamptons. Warm or cold, on a sunny day the beaches are welcoming to a couple for an afternoon walk and talk. The smell of the saltwater air soothes the winter blues and allows couples on the East End to relax and be in the moment with one another. – Lauren Isenberg

Entertainment In Town review: come back little gordin & christiano

Photo by Joan Marcus

Michael Pressman’s earnest revival of William Inge’s heartbreaking drama Come Back Little Sheba for Manhattan Theatre Club includes a touching performance by television star S. Epatha Merkerson as the central character, Lola. Considered raw and explicit when it debuted on Broadway in 1950, Come Back Little Sheba feels decidedly tame and dated today, although hauntingly so. William Inge’s depiction of Lola, a faded beauty queen trapped in a lonely marriage to an alcoholic chiropractor, may have been the ultimate “desperate housewife” for his time, but that was over five decades ago. Since then, society has provided women (and men) options that divert from the play’s primary conflict. The playwright, nevertheless, launched his career with Come Back Little Sheba, capturing the period poignantly with themes that still resonate today. Shirley Booth’s memorable, Tony-Award winning portrayal of Lola was immortalized in the l952 film, and earned her an Oscar. From that success, Inge would be heralded as a major playwright, and his later plays Picnic (Pulitzer Prize for drama), Bus Stop (directed by Harold Clurman with Kim Stanley), and The Dark at the Top of the Stairs (directed by Elia Kazan with Geraldine Page) would also be made into films. His stories have a gritty sweetness that feels period authentic, but his heavy handed melodramatic style and obvious symbolism haven’t allowed his tales to age gracefully. His last big success was the screenplay for the 1960s film Splendor in the Grass, which earned him an Academy Award. His writing, although moving, doesn’t hold up well, and Pressman’s tidy production seems to accentuate the flaws rather than con-

ceal them. The story, set in the Midwest, focuses on the despair of a loveless marriage. Doc, played by Kevin Anderson, married his high school sweetheart, Lola when she became pregnant, thus giving up his medical studies. When a miscarriage destroys their hopes for the future – along with Lola’s capacity to bear children – he turns to the bottle. The play begins 25 years later, when Doc is sober one year through the help of Alcoholics Anonymous. The couple has taken in a boarder, a savvy young college student, Marie (Zoe Kazan), who has two boyfriends. Her presence in their mundane lives will become the catalyst for Doc’s meltdown and violent explosion. Merkerson, who rose to fame through 14 years on television’s “Law and Order,” captures Lola’s damaged quality with a sincere, moving performance, but there

is little shading or nuance to her work. Although Merkerson is an accomplished actress with roots in the theater, she doesn’t go far enough with the character in Pressman’s production. As Doc, Anderson turns in a combustible performance full of bitterness and frustration that infuse his compromised life, but his work is predictable and postured – he is playing the problem. Most disappointing, however, is that the two lead actors have little chemistry. The pictures look correct, if you’re willing to accept an interracial marriage in 1950, but beyond that, Merkerson and Anderson seem to be acting separately with imposed concepts of the characters. There are no real emotional connections and as a result, the tensions necessary to build the play to its devastating conclusion are decidedly missing. The MTC production is curiously interesting as a period piece concerning themes still relevant today – repressed emotions, self-esteem issues, alcoholism, domestic violence, premarital sex and childhood pregnancy, but the ghost of Shirley Booth haunts the evening. Every time I heard Merkeson utter “Daddy,” which is Lola’s pet name for Doc, I could hear Shirley Booth’s voice from the film reverberating in my head and see her pleading for love and acceptance. Come Back Little Sheba opened on January 24, 2008 at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Biltmore Theatre, 261 West 47th Street between Broadway and Eight Avenue. Tickets are available by calling at (212) 239-6200 or at the box office. Barry Gordin and Patrick Christiano are theater critics. Barry Gordin is an internationally renowned photographer.

MINI – MOVIE REVIEWS Fool’s Gold A couple on the rocks hunts for buried treasure, only to find their lost romance in this action/romantic comedy. The movie reunites Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, making it sort of like How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days on an island, only not very funny. The Hottie and the Nottie Paris Hilton stars in a heartfelt romcom about a man who is trying to rekindle the flame of his childhood love, but first must tame her unattractive best friend, who he may also begin falling in love with. With the word “nottie” in the title and a bevy of unfunny jokes in the trailer, you can insert your own joke here. Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins A popular talk show host leaves the Hollywood Hills to learn some family values in his hometown in the Deep South. With Martin Lawrence starring, this may be the most interesting of this week’s crop, but that isn’t saying much. Meet The Spartans A film so inane I initially neglected to review it, assuming it would never be noticed and soon forgotten. Instead, this parody of every other bad movie that came out in the past year, ironically a meta-parody of itself starring Carmen Electra with a cameo by Paris Hilton, is the number one movie in the country. God bless America. Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus

Best of both worlds concert tour – couldn’t snag the high-priced tickets to see this tween pop star live at the coliseum? No worries, because the GIRL’S ON FILM! In 3D. My best friend Leslie says, “oh, she’s just being Miley.” Or Hannah Montana! Either way,

this rising Disney star is golden with dated moves and synthesized, fun tunes to belt out. Untraceable It’s MySpace gone bad in this film in which Diane Lane plays an FBI agent racing to catch a killer who posts his crimes on the Internet. Was Sandra Bullock busy? This thriller has definitely been made before, but is suspenseful nonetheless. Rambo Sylvester Stallone is back. In Thailand, John Rambo leads a motley crew of mercenaries up the Salween River to a Burmese village after getting word that a group of aid workers he assisted has gone missing. Obviously, all in his path perish in this alpha male action flick. There Will Be Blood Get a head start on the Oscar season and a smartsounding recommendation by seeing this dark, brilliant portrayal of an oil-hungry businessman in turnof-the-century Texas by cult director Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights). There will be awards in a country very much for old men of late, cinematically speaking. First Sunday This week’s post-Christmas crop needs no cynicism from me, as the films speak for themselves. This one, starring Ice Cube, is a comedy about criminals who learn the error of their ways from the church parishioners they hold hostage. On second thought, this could become a fan favorite.

The Fantasticks at The Southampton Cultural Center In 1960 The Fantasticks was bleeding money in its third month off-Broadway. Pressure was rising in the Big Apple and an escape was necessary. Guild Hall invited the cast for a week of performances and the offer was enthusiastically accepted. Everyone expected the trip to the East End would be a perfected time for a little R&R. Actors brought bathing suits and tennis rackets with all intention of having some fun in the sun before their moment in the spotlight was over, but the weather was terrible and the cast was forced to stay indoors. The Guild Hall performances seemed as if they would be the swansong for the show, but something funny happened, something that could only happen in the Hamptons. In the audience sat some very influential theater figures. Noted stage and screen directors Jerome Robbins, and Elia Kazan both caught a performance and the word spread. The show at Guild Hall was a huge success. By the time the acting troupe returned to Manhattan’s Sullivan Street Playhouse, the box office was selling out shows left and right. It fact, the show was so successful that it ran for 42 years straight – an American theater record. Now, almost 50 years later, The Fantasticks has returned to the East End. The musical borrows from several traditional plays: Pyramus and Thisbe, Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and L’elisir d’Amore; but The Fantasticks is mostly based on Edmond Rostand’s play Les Romanesques. The initial plot is clever and clearly tips its hat to Romeo and Juliet. Hucklebee and Bellomy are neighbors in a small town. They want their children, Matt and Luisa, to fall in love, but knowing that their children will do the opposite of what they are told, Hucklebee and Bellomy devise a plan. They create an artificial feud between the two families that will obviously drive the children closer together. It works and the two fall in love, but now the fathers must overcome their “hatred” for each other so their children can live happily ever after. Enter El Gallo, a scoundrel hired by the fathers to abduct Luisa, forcing Matt to come to her rescue and in doing so he will “win” Luisa’s father’s approval. The plan works and the two families are happy and joyful – at first. As with all things, be careful what you wish for. Instead of pretending to fight, the two fathers now begin to feud for real. What makes matters worse is that Matt and Luisa find approved love is a little less exciting than forbidden love and the young couple grows restless. Matt leaves Luisa for the adventures of the world and Luisa heads off with El Gallo. What happens next? You’ll just have to see for yourself. Much like dealing with Shakespeare, or with any

theater piece that has existed for a long enough, generational changes and needs must be met when addressing a performance. This is not to say The Fantasticks has been altered in its text or songs, but more with its tone. Under the direction of Amagansett-based Michael Disher, who has worked on-and-off in Hamptons theater for over 20 years, this interpretation of the show looks to present The Fantasticks with “a great amount of sincerity, a great amount of honesty and a great

amount of realism.” This performance will be the first of many at the newly renovated Southampton Cultural Center. The Center fills a void in the East End by seeking to develop opportunities for local artists. The cast, featuring 11 residents from Montauk to East Moriches to Greenport, have been given a wonderful chance to present one of America’s greatest loved musicals. Given the space at the SCC’s Levitas Center, The Fantasticks seems to be perfect fit for the Center’s first show. The musical accompaniment requires simply a piano and a harp, which in an acoustically superior room are simply beautiful. “Many people think The Fantasticks is an easy show. . . but it is probably one of the more difficult shows to accomplish,” Disher said in a recent interview. But with the cast assembled it seems like Disher and his crew have accomplished a great deal. – Christian McLean The show runs Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m, from February 8 – 24. Tickets: $18 general admission, $15 seniors/students. The Levitas Center for the Arts is located at The Southampton Cultural Center, 25 Pond Lane, Southampton.

DAN'S PAPERS, February 8, 2008 Page 48

Guy de Fraumeni’s Hollywood 1n The Hamptons Palpitating warmth can be felt rising from any one of Woody Allen’s cozy murder thrillers, no matter the horror of the crime. The Woodman, I am convinced, can leave two headless corpses but accompanying them will be a couple of pinkish-blue, cute-to-deadly pictures of kittens. Cassandra’s Dream has two cockney brothers thinking about murder. Ewan McGregor (Ian) and (Terry) Colin Farrell primp their flashy suits, but they’re not really bad types just as Woody isn’t really as tough as his murder most foul image, but they can really rise to the occasion when needed. But, how do you put a cap on a hotas-a-pistol boiling pepper pot that’s been simmered to such a satisfying melt in your mouth tenderness you can easily take the heat. We may wonder why Woody doesn’t quit making comedies and stay deeply, darkly on the stranger, more complicated side of life. For, instance, there isn’t a shred of comedy in Cassandra’s Dream. The brothers shared the dream of owning a family boat. Terry is a hard drinking garage mechanic and seems content with his reckless wannabe life. He gambles ambitiously, aiming really high, past his dad’s restaurant and up toCalifornia hotels. He gambles unwisely – still while drinking hard and bingo! They hit the jackpot and bang! They own a dream boat. Then he continues to win enough to increase his dog track holdings. Basically, these belong to his uncle Howard, yes, Tom Wilkerson, who is doing not as well as he likes to pretend. His empire is built on fraud. The ambitious but simple brothers suddenly find the tough guys want actual money to make up the deficit. Can the brothers rustle up the cash? It doesn’t seem likely. Terry thinks of himself as a property speculator. The title is much better considered than an impressive label. Uncle Howard keeps it pleasant enough as a family “thing,” but the boys don’t realize how meaningful “family” property is. They are just as easily able to

Cassandra’s Dream

allow much larger and grander position titles for themselves. Two favorites are “Captn” and “Guvnor.” No one took exception to their use so,

why should anyone object to family property being used as it should be? Terry finally makes a killing at the track earning enough to buy a rusted out “pleasure boat.” They spend a day or two enraptured in pleasure. A lot of that pleasure involves losing a lot of money and having to collect it. Instead of dreaming up a great new method of repayment as the goons simply fall back on the old tried and true standby, break their legs until they pay up. It would be comforting to help the boys, but these youngsters don’t have a leg to stand on. They have a great pleasure boat but it won’t really help them when their rich uncle needs them to murder a rotten little squealer. As the notable “family thing that it is” there should be no doubt as to what the family expected. Uncle Howard had of course, no other response except to fall back on family loyalty. What else was there? All the young men had their own desperation and the plausibility of its conundrum knots. Mr. Allen has the quirks to maintain tragedy and to Oedipus Rex or Rex Harrison, for that matter, a slab of Gorgonzola. Yes! Requirements should be required. If a rusty ol’ bucket is owned, one would need some rust busters and neatkins. Rust must be eliminated. So, no matter the work-is still-tough and why shouldn’t a family member scrub and scrape his or her knuckles! Enjoyment is partly a matter of unhappiness. Family loyalty is measured in terms of one man’s Mafia connection. A rare necessity would be a Mafia connection. It is fine, for brotherly love. Allen sets up the kitchen but expect a lot less fun than warmed over Dostoevsky. Guy-Jean de Fraumeni is the producer, writer, and director of award-winning European and American Feature films. He has been a judge at major Film and TV award competitions, including the Oscars, The Emmy’s and various film festivals. Sarah Halsey assists him

DAN'S PAPERS, February 8, 2008 Page 49

Silvia Lehrer’s Cooking Column “Chocolate is one of the most remarkable foods. It is made from the astringent, bitter, and otherwise bland seeds of a tropical tree, yet its flavor is exceptionally rich, complex and versatile, the product of both fermentation and roasting. Its consistency is like no other foods: hard and dry at room temperature, melting and creamy in the warmth of the mouth.” Thus begins the first chapter on the subject of chocolate in Harold McGee’s On Food and Cooking, The Science and Lore of the Kitchen, Scribner, 2004. For me chocolate has the satisfying taste that few foods can match. Who ever boasted of being a vanillaholic? Chocolate contains the stimulant, phenyl ethylamine, a chemical released by the brain to offer a high level of passion. Mostly, though, food can function as an aphrodisiac because eating is not only for survival but also about sensuality, enjoying the physical side of life. In any event, there are few better ways to end a St. Valentines Day dinner than with a dessert made from or with chocolate. COLD CHOCOLATE SOUFFLE A terrific do-ahead soufflé! Serves 8-10 3 ounces imported semi-sweet chocolate 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar 1 envelope unflavored gelatin 3 tablespoons cold water 1 cup milk Pinch salt 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier 2 cups heavy cream, softly whipped Finely ground fresh coffee beans for garnish, optional

or overnight. 5. To serve: Run a knife around the inside edge of the soufflé dish, then carefully peel back paper collar and discard. Sprinkle with finely ground coffee beans, if desired. Recipe reprinted from Silvia Lehrer’s Cooking at Cooktique, Doubleday POACHED PEARS WITH CHOCOLATE SAUCE Pears are always hard when purchased. Leave to ripen in a paper bag from 2-4 days. Serves 6 - 8 For the pears 4 cups water 1 cup sugar 2 teaspoons lemon juice 4 whole cloves 1 stick cinnamon 4 ripe pears, Bosc or Anjou For the sauce 1/3 cup sifted confectioners sugar 3 tablespoons Dutch process unsweetened cocoa powder 1 tablespoon cornstarch Dash salt 1/2 cup hot water 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Slivered almonds for garnish, optional 1. Place water, sugar, lemon juice, cloves and cinnamon in a saucepan, over medium high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Adjust heat to a brisk simmer and cook about 10-12 minutes until a light syrup forms. Peel, core and slice pears in half. Put the pears into the syrup and poach gently for 10-15 minutes depending on the ripeness of

the pears. Let cool and reserve in the liquid. 2. For the sauce, combine confectioners sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt in a saucepan and stir to mix. Bring the mixture to a simmer over low heat, then whisk in the boiling water; cook for 1-2 minutes until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Let cool to room temperature. Steps 1 and 2 can be made up to a week ahead and refridgerated in seperate containers. 3. When ready to serve drizzle sauce over pears and sprinkle with slivered almonds, if desired.

Prepare a 3- 3 1/2’’ soufflé dish with a collar by wrapping a length of buttered parchment around the dish and securing it with scotch tape. 1. Melt chocolate in a heavy saucepan over very low heat, stirring occasionally, or place in a small heatproof dish and melt in a 250 degree oven, about 10-12 minutes. When texture appears to be soft, stir to a smooth cream. Remove from heat, and with a wooden spoon, stir confectioners’ sugar into melted chocolate as well as possible. As you stir lumpy particles of chocolate will develop but will dissolve later, with the addition of hot milk. 2. Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in a Pyrex measure. Let stand until gelatin has absorbed liquid, about 3-5 minutes. Do not stir. 3. Scald milk in a separate saucepan until a film covers the surface: do not allow to boil. Pour hot milk into chocolate mixture and simmer over low heat, about 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly to dissolve any lumpy bits of chocolate. Remove from heat and stir in the softened gelatin to thoroughly incorporate. Add salt and vanilla extract and stir to mix. Transfer to a mixing bowl and let cool. Put into refrigerator and chill 20-30 minutes, or until mixture begins to gel around sides of bowl. Add Grand Marnier and whisk until light and airy. 4. With a rubber spatula, fold whipped cream into chocolate until thoroughly incorporated. Pour into prepared soufflé dish and chill 3-4 four hours

Dining in the Hamptons Salads: Hold the Lettuce


During a recent seminar on sustainability at Guild Hall in East Hampton, I was eating fruit salad while looking at slides of soil organisms – experiencing the macro world of food while studying the microscopic. The grapefruit in my salad was from Florida, the blueberries from California and the mango from Mexico – an amazingly well traveled side dish. While we in the Northeast may not be foraging at the farm stands for fresh lettuces and beans, in other parts of the world there are still some fruits and vegetables coming into season. Berries from California, citrus from Florida, grapes from Chile, pineapples from Hawaii, and avocados, squashes, tomatoes and jicamas from Mexico can all be found on the grocer’s shelves. Combining these ingredients in new ways can be a fun and tasty challenge – not to mention a welcomed departure from the more mundane winter fare. The classic winter salad of beets, candied walnuts and goat cheese salad has worn thin on me – not to mention, nuts and cheese in a salad seems to be a contradiction to low calorie eating. But steamed or roasted fresh beets are great in combination with many other vegetables and fruits. Try dicing them and tossing with mango cubes, caramelized onions, and parsley. Rather than reaching yet again for olive oil, splash on a little hazelnut or walnut oil to dress this up if you’d like. Or forego dressing completely – these flavors speak for themselves. A base mix of fruit and veggies like these may inspire you to add some roasted fennel for a great dinner. Any leftovers make a great lunch the next day. In fact, since most salads involve a fair amount of preparation – washing, peeling, slicing and dicing – it’s a good idea to make extra. The advantage of these types of salads is that, unlike lettuce and tomato, they have a longer shelf life, without wilting, in the refrigerator.

A perfect example is a raw salad of julienned jicama, fresh sliced fennel and endive. Use that as the underpinning for accents of Spanish tangerine slices and cashews. For a lively dressing, crush fresh mint in almond oil, or just add a pinch of ground cardamom instead. Another strategy is greens on the bottom, fruit on the top. A bed of arugula and watercress can be topped with a finely diced avocado and pineapple salsa. A little salt and pepper or crushed cilantro gives this salad enough spice and spark so that no dressing is needed. Or mix diced mango with black beans and cilantro for another protein rich topping for greens. Keep the balsamic in the cabinet for a change, and use rice wine vinegar instead. Coleslaw and carrot salads are great for the winter, since good quality cabbage is readily available, and carrots are pretty indestructible. More unusual seasonings can make these tried and true options dance on your palate. Try shaved green and red cabbage tossed with scallions and seasoned with either grated or pickled ginger, shoyu, toasted sesame oil and a splash of mirin. For an updated carrot salad, combine grated carrots, walnuts and dried cherries or “craisins” with lemon yogurt (or, alternatively, with lemon juice, clove and cinnamon). For variation, add a little grated jicama, apple or even shaved fennel. Apart from crispy, crunchy cold salads to brighten

up a winter meal, baked main or side dishes can also be rethought at this time of year. An unusual vegetable is Japanese Kubota squash. Firm and dry when cooked, some people think it tastes like a yam. In fact if you can’t find it, yams are a perfect substitute, as is butternut squash. For a great casserole, dice up the raw squash (or yam) and mix with slices of Bosc pears and Gala apples, pecans and a little apple juice. A shot of maple syrup and pinch of cinnamon makes it a warm, fulfilling main or side dish, baked in the oven at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Once cooked, this combo is great cold or hot. You could always add raisins, nutmeg and clove if you like. This is the time of year to create vegetable, fruit and nut combinations that are a nice break from the mundane, until our East End farm stands are back in swing. – April Gonzales

Arts & Galleries

FAR FROM THE HAMPTONS: WASHINGTON, D.C. Part III: The Textile Museum Compared to other art forms, the textile arts have long been underappreciated. Yet we know that there are exquisite examples practically in our own backyard, with work at The LongHouse Reserve and from the studios of local artists like Pamela Topham and Christa Maiwald. Moreover, a recent Art Commentary celebrated the current textile exhibit at New York’s Museum of Arts and Design. The Textile Museum in Washington, D.C. is a gem, the only venue of its kind in the United States devoted to the preservation, study and exhibition of handmade textiles. Founded in 1924 by Hewitt Myers, the Museum possesses more than 18,000 textiles and carpets. Its current show features outstanding contemporary work as well. What this critic was fascinated by, however, was the Museum’s setting, its quaint neighborhood containing impressive embassies (including Ireland), lovely mansions, a small park and twisting streets leading to the top of a hill.

Backyard: The Textile Museum

The Textile Museum is itself a former mansion, its backyard lush with evergreen bushes and festive flowers. The small fountain adds to the feeling that one could be in Italy or France; the small tables make it seem as if the Musuem could still be a private residence where all are welcome. The present exhibition highlights some arresting work. One favorite piece is “Classic Man,” two vertical strips each containing panels of

Michelangelo’s “David.” His body has been fragmented into individual parts, the first strip filled with gold threads. The second strip is the same fragmentation, but the parts become increasingly apelike. The final panel shows David’s foot imbued with ape hair instead of gold thread. The theme seems to question the nature of beauty and the evolution of that beauty from primitive being to civilized man. Beauty for beauty’s sake is another extraordinary element of some pieces. Consider the power of technique and use of materials in Jon Eric’s silk tapestry with metallic thread or John McQueen’s “Beside Myself.” A huge figure made of sleeves from sweaters by Nick Cave is a stunning example of material made from found objects; it recalls Paul Villinski’s piece of found gloves featured at New York’s Museum of Arts and Design. Washington, D.C. is blessed with unique art spaces, and The Textile Museum is certainly one of them. Call The Textile Museum for current updates at 202-667-0441. Or visit

Honoring the Artist: Don Wilson “My wife calls me a Renaissance Man,” cover artist Don Wilson says with relish. Considering his varied background, truer words were never spoken. Despite Mr. Wilson’s wide-ranging interests, however, he has maintained an abiding passion for painting. Q: You have been a librarian for many years. What drew you to this particular profession? A: It’s so diverse. It can go in hundreds of directions. I can’t think of a better career. You can be in public libraries, special libraries, like ones for law or medicine. Moreover, public libraries are important cultural centers. They are the heart of a community. Q: Speaking of professional diversity, you’ve held a lot of different positions in library science. A: Yes. I was a children’s librarian for thirty years; now I teach library science to students at C.W. Post. Q: Besides being in the library system, you’ve also been significantly involved in another endeavor. A: I was in the family restaurant business for ten years. But I got tired working nights and weekends, so I went back to get my M.A. in Library Science at Long Island University.

Q: How does art play a part in your life? A: As a little kid, my father liked to draw Mickey Mouse, so that was a good introduction. In the eighth grade, my guidance counselor asked me what I like to do and I said, “draw pictures.” She put me in an art class. That was the beginning, but I didn’t pursue art for 21 years. Q: Tell us about the cover and your painting technique. A: It’s an image of one bare apple tree at Woodside Farm in Jamesport where we stopped after the season to get some apples. Of all the seasons, I like to paint winter best. I mottled the blue-green sky with sponges. Q: What other subjects are you attracted to? A: I do seascapes and local scenes on the North Fork, like old barns and soon-to-be-gone farm stands. Speaking of seascapes, I also painted a big tug boat in Greenport’s harbor and the tall ships. Q: Has being a librarian had an influence on your art? For example, are you detailed in your art? A: Not really. I use big, bold strokes. I avoid real details. My style is realistic, but I’m drifting more to Impressionism. Q: If not in your artistic life, how has being a

librarian impacted on your personal life? A: I like to read children’s literature in my free time, two favorites being Walk Two Moons and Charlotte’s Web. I also read a lot to my first son, who did very well in school. I read somewhat less to my second child who did less well in school. Reading really does help kids do better. Q: How has your interest in the restaurant profession had an influence? A: My wife and I enjoy fine dining. We go to Disney World three times a year for that and also to Italy as often as I can. We were there last summer. We also have an organic garden. Q: Have you considered writing cookbooks or giving classes? A: I gave cooking classes for children full-time for a year. It was very enjoyable. Q: What do you see yourself doing in ten years? You have a lot of choices. A: I would spend more time on the arts. And I wouldn’t mind having an apartment in New York City. Q: Talk about diversity, that’s the place to be. – Marion Wolberg Weiss Dan’s Papers covers curated by Dan Rattiner and designed by Kelly Merritt and Dan Rattiner.

DAN'S PAPERS, February 8, 2008 Page 55

Health, Beauty & Fitness It’s that time of year again – time to be barraged with cute chipmunks holding giant heart balloons, shiny red boxes filled with heart shaped chocolates and silver hearts dangling from silver chains. Hearts, hearts, everywhere. So I thought it fitting to bring our attention to the energetic center of the body – the heart chakra. It’s the place from which you navigate your most difficult passes, and it’s the place in which the most important people in your life reside. But sometimes we have a hard time finding our hearts and this has something to do with our heart chakras being out of balance. The term “chakra” is one aspect of Hinduism that has permeated Western culture. Most people have a vague idea of chakras, which are located at seven different places in the body where energy pathways are densely packed. These chakras lie along the shushumna nadi, or the central channel. Of the seven chakras, the heart is in the middle. Because of its location along the central channel of the body, the heart chakra, or Anahata, is extremely important. In yogic philosophy, when your heart chakra is shut down, it’s called a “God sized hole.” If the heart chakra is very closed, like after a trauma, none of the other chakras will be in balance. The heart chakra is located at the center of the chest. It’s associated with the color pink, and is represented by a twelve-petal lotus flower. When the heart chakra is healthy and balanced, it radiates

through your whole being. Positive qualities associated with an open heart chakra include love, compassion, beauty, sensitivity, generosity and creativity. People with balanced heart chakras feel an ability to connect with others and love on a profound level – as in spiritual love. However, when the heart chakra is closed, qualities that may arise include hatred, disgust, negligence and shame. The heart chakra tends to close up after something traumatizing occurs. For example, after a divorce, a person may feel cut off from the world, unable to reach out and make a connection. This is an imbalance in the heart chakra. So how do we go about opening a chakra? Yoga is a direct route to the energetic body, and there are specific poses that help to balance certain chakras.

Heart opening poses, like backbends, are obviously good ways to access the heart. So, if you’re feeling dull, depressed, or spiteful, it might be a simple matter of getting warmed up and then doing some backbends. The transformations that can take place on an emotional, spiritual, and energetic level by engaging in this physical practice are incredible. Another way to access the heart chakra is through the breath. Often, our hearts are closed because we are feeling dull internally. You can see this manifest itself as people hunch over, curling into themselves and losing the ability to connect with others. By taking a full inhale and extending the side seams of your body long, you are creating space internally. By rolling the shoulder blades onto the back, you are creating openness in the chest. These simple breathing processes allow your heart to be physically more open to the world. The heart can also be accessed through meditation. Often in the heat of the moment, we think we’re being true to our hearts by saying whatever our emotions are shouting, but that is usually not the clearest representation of how we really feel. By giving ourselves time to meditate, to contemplate, and to listen to ourselves, we can hear our heart speaking to us. This Valentine’s Day, don’t stress about the chocolates or the diamonds or the roses. Instead, check in with your real heart and bring some balance into your day. It will allow you to experience the true essence of a holiday devoted to the heart.

Health, Beauty & Fitness What is more in the spirit of Valentine’s Day than a heart-shaped box of chocolates? I know what you’re thinking, placing chocolates into a heart-shaped box is just a tool for marketing, a way to push a product, etc., but recent studies have proven that chocolate is actually good for the old ticker. There is a group of chemical called flavanols that exist in tea, wine and cocoa that has been proven to be good for the cardiovascular system. The exact flavanol found in cocoa is known as epicatechin. According to biochemist Hagen Schroeter of the University of California, Davis, “Although previous studies strongly indicated that some flavanol-rich foods, such as wine,

“Face” The New Year With a More Confident, Younger Looking You! Dr. Paul Kelly of Peconic Facial Plastic Surgery specializes in state of the art cosmetic procedures that can make you look up to 10 years younger. Certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Dr. PAUL KELLY MD, FACS Board of Otolaryngology, he is the East End’s undiscovered jewel. He obtained his doctorate from Tulane University and after comleting his residency finished his fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. A complimentary pre-surgical consultation is all inclusive and begins with the simple question of what it is that you want to improve about your appearance. Once this is established, Dr. Kelly will explain the step by step details of the procedures and options available to address your concerns. Options may range from a low down time choice like the Obagi skin routine followed by an acid peel, to more involved options such as an endoscopic brow lift or facelift operation. Computer imaging is available. Dr. Kelly can take your picture and create computer generated “photos” to view surgical goals. You will be assured that you are getting the “natural look” you want…so you can feel confident that the results expected will be the results obtained. Many anesthesia options are available and Dr. Kelly will help you decide which is best for you. Regardless, he utilizes a gentle touch technique in combination with microscope assisted suture removal and small 24 hour nasal pads after nose surgery. Patient discomfort is usually minimal for most procedures and many patients do not even require the use of pain medication. Depending on the procedure, the return to your normal routine can be anywhere from 1-7 days. So “face” the new year with a younger looking you…confident in the skill of your highly trained and regarded surgeon, confident in getting the results you expected with minimal discomfort, confident in getting the best possible care right near your home and confident in looking younger than you have in the last 10 years.

tea and cocoa can offer cardiovascular health benefits, we have been able to demonstrate a direct relationship between the intake of certain flavanols present in cocoa, their absorption into the circulation and their effects on cardiovascular function in humans.” On the San Blas Island off the coast of Panama lives an isolated tribe called the Kuna. The Kuna are renowned for their lack of cardiovascular disease. The study noted that on average the Kuna people consume 3-4 cups of cocoa each day, giving their bodies a large dose of flavanols. Scientists compared these results with those of Kuna who moved to Panama City and consumed only 3-4 cups of cocoa per week. The results

showed several indicators that prove cocoa could be the main reason for the island Kuna’s better than average cardiovascular function. First off, there was significant proof that the Kuna who moved to the city dealt with more heart problems than those who remained on the island. Also, the islanders had twice the amount of urinary nitric oxide as the city Kuna and they also had higher levels of epicatechin in their blood. The elevated amounts of these elements both indicate better blood flow. To reinforce their findings, tests were then performed where subjects consumed pure epicatechin with much of the same results as that of the Kuna’s. With this study, Schroeter is fairly certain that epicatechin and flavonal-rich cocoa can help the cardiovascular system. But wait, there’s more. In a study conducted at Pennsylvania State University, consuming dark chocolate and cocoa powder was shown to possibly raise your HDL “good” cholesterol levels by 10%. According to Dr. Kris-Etherton, the elevated levels of HDL are due to high antioxidant levels in chocolate. An earlier study by Kris-Etherton also attributes the rise in HDL to stearic acid, one of the fats in chocolate. In her latest study, subjects were fed 16 grams of dark chocolate and 22 grams of cocoa powder each day. The results showed that LDL “bad” cholesterol in the blood was less likely to oxidize, leading to less plaque buildup in the arteries. Less plaque means better blood flow. Better blood flow means less stress on the heart. While dark chocolate and cocoa have had a great deal of success with positive heart function in studies, more than likely this is not why we give chocolates on Valentine’s Day. Also, most people give milk chocolate, which doesn’t have the same effects. So why do we give chocolate? There’s more to this sweet little candy than hearthealthy chemicals. Inside every little bit of chocolate are a few other chemicals that can help make a romantic day seem even more romantic. First there is caffeine. It’s a minute amount compared to a cup of coffee, but there is just enough to get the heart beating a little faster. Couple that with tryptophan, which increases the production of serotonin (a natural antidepressant), add the release of endorphins into the bloodstream and now you’re feeling just great. Chocolate also has anandamide, a chemical, though on a much lower dosage, which mimics the effects of marijuana and gives you an extremely mild high. While all these little goodies could get your Valentine feeling great, one final chemical has the most striking effect. Chocolate contains phenylethylamine, the same chemical released in our bodies when we fall in love. There it is – chocolate, the heart-healthy-antidepressant-aphrodisiac. While rather a cliché way of saying “I Love You,” now there’s the proof to show you really do. Just remember moderation is key – with chocolate, not love.

Health, Beauty & Fitness Seeing Red Kissable lips? Check. Sexy bedroom eyes? Check. Seductive smell? Check. Now all that’s missing is a red-hot manicure and pedicure! Valentine’s Day is the best excuse to go all out with a fabulous manicure and pedicure and the Hamptons offer plenty of options to pamper yourself. Of course red is the color of the month and if this week’s runway shows in New York City are any indication, it will be the color of the season as well. From the long and pointy, to the rounded and short, perfectly manicured red nails truly flatter all hands and go seamlessly with fall’s ladylike trend. Though once considered scandalous, Coco Chanel is credited with changing that obsolete idea and these days whether you’re headed to a New York City nightclub or off to one of the Hamptons’ fine golfing clubs, there’s no going wrong with a clean, fire engine red manicure and the East End offers no shortage of nail salons. For those looking to go low-budget, buying a home manicure kit is an easy option. Essence of Beauty has a great one that includes a four way buffer, cuticle sticks, a crystal file, a nail clipper, a cuticle nipper, and a nail file, and at $6.99 (available exclusively at CVS), it’s at a price you really can’t beat. However, when doing your own nails, don’t forget to always use a base and topcoat, treat your cuticles, and trim your nails. After you’ve loaded up on all your basics, nail guru Deborah Lippman has a great kit called the

Lady in Red nail and Lip Kit. It comes with My Old Flame Classic True Red Nail Lacquer, a base coat/top coat combo, and My Old Flame Classic True Red Lip Lacquer ($24). It’s a great compliment to a basic manicure kit and comes in a cute black leather pouch. This product is available at If you’re not looking to splurge on a whole kit, keep it simple by just getting a top and base coat (Seche Natural Nail Care Products are great) and a bottle of your favorite apple red nail polish. A wonderful red option is Revlon’s Vixen, available at CVS, and at $4.59, it’s cheap and relatively long lasting. For a pricier alternative go with Chanel’s Le Vernis in Midnight Red ($19, It’s wonderfully shiny and

has won accolades in many of the beauty industries leading publications. Finally, at $27 By Terry’s Scarlet Red shade is one of the most expensive options, but contains additional silicon resins that have a vinyllike ability to strengthen fragile nails by adding flexibility. The shade also has a supposedly rare ingredient called Oriental Essence, which makes your nails shiny and allows for a long lasting color. This rare shade can be found at For those looking for something a little bit more adventurous, nail art seems to be all the rage these days. One of my favorite nontraditional manicures was created by the London-based manicurist Zoe Pocock. Pocock created a “Louboutin manicure,” drawing her inspiration from the famous red Christina Louboutin shoe soles. The manicure entails polishing the top of the nail with your color of choice and then applying a bright red color to the underside of the nail – daring, sexy, and definitely cheaper then a buying a pair of Louboutin pumps! In the same vein manicurists at Creative Nail Design, who styled the nails of the Baby Phat models, suggest adding rhinestones to the underside of your manicured nails for a little extra sparkle. There are truly endless shades and styles for both fingers and toes to play around with for Valentine’s Day and whether you’re into the simple or going for something more daring, there is no way to go wrong with this forever classic shade. – Sharon Feiereisen

DAN'S PAPERS, February 8, 2008 Page 58

The Garden At Rock Cottage by Lance Brilliantine When it comes to roses, a gardener’s experience is an important consideration, and some gardeners prune early and hard to increase flowering, while others prune lightly and later, to avoid dieback and long recovery. All modern roses require pruning to shape them to desirable heights and shapes for the garden. Pruning can also encourage the production of larger, longerstemmed flowers on hybrid teas and more abundant clusters on floribundas. It may also benefit old roses to prune to encourage new vigor and blooms. Pruning removes dead, diseased, and damaged canes and helps to preserve rose health. In addition, thinning out canes from the interior of a rosebush increases air circulation and reduces fungus possibilities. One thing is for sure, it is still too early to prune roses – wait another two months. New, shiny redgreen buds are already showing, but pruning now will stimulate growth before the weather will support growth. Many gardeners wait until the last frost to prune their roses – which means as late as May on Eastern Long Island. This is really too late. We have found that mid-April is the right time to prune. When pruning, start by removing dead branches and canes. Healthy growth typically appears green or red, and dead canes appear gray or brown. When cutting, if the cane pith is dry and brown, continue cutting below this point until you reach a green or cream color. Remove damaged canes and ones that cross or rub on other healthy growth. When that task is completed, consider the shape of the bush. The classic “urn” shape that promotes a full-

shaped bush and an abundant flower display also promotes air circulation within the bush – so it is a good idea. The best approach, of course, is to let a bush grow for two years or so and to observe the natural growth pattern, e.g., bushy, rigidly upright, arching, etc. We like to maintain the natural characteristic shape when pruning. Hacking away at a bush will destroy the rose’s natural grace. An elegantly arching shrub that has been chopped down to a stubby plant has, it may be said, been butchered. Make the primary pruning cuts on healthy canes by cutting about one-fourth of an inch above a bud eye. Cuts should be made at a 45-degree angle to help with moisture runoff. The remaining bud eye should face outward – or at least in a desired growth direction. In addition, remove any canes that are thinner than a pencil. This provides sufficient size to support new spring growth. As you do this, keep in mind the desired finish shape for the rosebush. Imagine how the bush will look when growth occurs. The amount of pruning depends on the characteristics desired for roses during the blooming season. For more abundant blooms on smaller stems use a lighter pruning that leaves most of the canes. Prune about 30%. Remove very small canes and clean up the

center of the plant. Medium pruning removes more foliage and will result in fewer strong canes. Canes can be reduced to up to onehalf of their original height. This degree of pruning works well for most healthy roses. Heavy pruning is appropriate where there is significant damage from severe weather, or the bush is out of control. Heavy pruning, which reduces the bush significantly, produces fewer blooms because it taxes a bush to recuperate. However, this approach may produce larger flowers on longer stems. Regardless of the pruning approach used, always remove suckers or rootstock shoots that appear from below the basal break of the bush. These shoots tend to sap the strength of a bush. Once the pruning is completed, spray the bush with dormant oil spray and/or a fungal spray to prevent diseases. Clean up any clippings from the base of the plant. If you have planted bare-root roses, skip the first two seasons before pruning. This will allow the plant to establish itself, fill out and develop its natural shape. It will also let you observe the characteristics of the plant. It is particularly important for roses that bloom on old wood and not new growth.

GOOD TIP Dear Dan, Your article on the tipping habits of Europeans fails to point out one important point. Most European restaurants add a service charge of 15% to each bill. If not, “service not included” is printed on either the menu or the bill. As a result, tipping in Europe usually means rounding up to the next full Euro. Our restaurants and bars would be well advised to print “service not included” on their menus to aid our European guests in spending their over valued Euros over here. Sincerely, Stewart Eisele Via e-mail They ought to keep it straight. – DR WHEN IN ROME Dear Dan, Your as usual, entertaining article concerning European bad tipping: here is a subject for a follow up column: Perhaps the European are so-called

e-mail Dan at

“bad” tippers here because there is no reason to tip in Europe, so they are not used to it! When you go to a restaurant or cafe most places in Europe, the price they quote is the total price you pay. If they advertise for instance 30 Euros prix fixe, that’s exactly it. The price advertised includes tax and a 15% service charge. So that the custom over there is that if you want to you can give a little more, say 5% or even less, in token of appreciation if the service is particularly good. Which is just wonderful. Every time I get back to the States, I am again annoyed at the fact that the price advertised is NOT the price you pay, that you always have to pay quite a bit more! Wouldn’t it be great if all the restaurants in the South fork would agree to do like the Europeans, and include tax and service charge in the advertised price? A grace note: All over Italy, like in every European country, the credit card slip to sign does NOT include a line for a tip except in Rome, where the canny Italians, knowing the American habits, do include a line for a tip, so that they get double from the hapless tourist!!

Paraskevas’ insinuating “cartoon” of Irish caricature stiffing a waitress is in poor taste. The Irish do not have or need a anti-defamation league or NAACP to protest any slur real or imagined. The record of Irish generosity and hospitality stands. Before the rewards of the Celtic Tiger enabled Ireland to achieve the highest quality of life in the European confederation it was still suffering the scares of British brutality, suppression, exploitation and misgovernment. It donated more to international charity per capita than any country in Europe. Pick a more accurate target and brush up on your history. Brian Kelly Apologies. We love the Irish. – DR

Redjeb Via e-mail I’ve been adding 15% when I go to Europe. They must think me really dumb. – DR WELL DONE Dear Dan, Thank you once again for using one of my paintings for your cover. It always is a real lift for me. The reproduction was wonderful and the colors true to the painting, which leads me to believe I should probably have Tom Ratcliffe photograph all of my work! Thanks again. Barbara Hadden Fine work. – DR HISTORY LESSON Dear Dan, If you must do something bad, do it good. Mr.

Police Blotter Super Bowl Freak Out A report in Southampton came over the wire about a fight between two friends who made a personal bet over the Super Bowl. One man was so upset that the Patriots lost he refused to admit that his team had been completely destroyed by the New York Giants at the very last minute in one of the best Super Bowls in history. The poor cry-baby left calling his friends in Boston, who consoled him. No reports on whether or not he still is sobbing. * * * Drunk Driver During Super Bowl Sunday, when the Giants brought glory back to New York sports, a drunk driver got pulled over and arrested in East Hampton. Good going, buddy. * * * Loud Noises! In Westhampton, complaints were made to the police about a loud house party. Police responded to the party, where guests were celebrating the warrior and heroic-like effort of the New York Giants, who so mercilessly massacred the New England Patriots and played like magicians with football helmets on. Police told them to keep the

noise down a little. But not before singing the “Hey Song” for one round of celebration. * * * Theft In East Hampton a cell phone valued at $300 was stolen. When the man got home, he noticed a variety of long distances charges made from the phone. A report was made, and it turned out that the calls were mostly about The New York Giants winning the Super Bowl. * * * Flat Screen Television A man in Southampton reported that his flat screen television was stolen. Thankfully, it was after he had watched the New York Giants, the greatest football team in all of history, banana smack the New England Patriots. * * * Domestic Dispute A domestic dispute took place between a nonmarried couple in Sag Harbor, and turned into a loud argument after the boyfriend in the relationship was caught cheating. This was similar to the way Bill Belichick was caught when he videotaped calls from across the sideline of opposing players, but then ultimately got caught, and then lost the Super Bowl, then walked off the field with

his tail between his legs like a sore loser. GOOOOOOOOO GIAANNNNNTSSSS!!! – Compiled and Written by David Lion Rattiner
