$30 Billion I’d Hoped this Wouldn’t Be Public, but What Could I Do? By Dan Rattiner Last week, the list of people who have come out of the woodwork to say that they are among those who got caught up in Bernie Madoff ’s Ponzi scheme was made public. Those affected didn’t want to have it made known. But if they wanted to have even a chance of getting any money back they will have to file legal papers, public documents that identify themselves in court papers. And court papers are public records. The media had a field day. But the total claimed, even with all the confessions, is nowhere near what Bernie himself says that he swindled in its entirety, which was $50 billion. So far, with a few tens of millions here and few hundred of millions there, it’s little more than $19 billion. I haven’t until now wanted to say this, but it’s going to have to come out. The loser of the other $30 billion is, well, me. Now you might say that this is truly a shocking admission on my part, because I have not been one of these people who flaunts it very much. I live in a modest home on Three Mile Harbor Road in East Hampton. I drive a Chevy Tahoe with a fishing rod on the roof that goes on the beach. I shop at Kmart. When I heard two days ago, while watching American Idol, that McDonald’s was offering the double cheeseburger on its $1 menu for the next two weeks, I rushed down there.

But the truth is that I’ve saved up some money running Dan’s Papers over the years. And the money I’ve saved I gave to Bernie. So, I just kept living my life like I always do. I think it’s fair to say, and people do say this about me, that money does not go to my head, though I have to confess that this past September, I did get an outrageously priced $700 sweater at the Polo Store on Main Street in East Hampton. It was reduced to $150 because it was on sale as they closed out their autumn stock. I thought it a good price. You should know that Bernie did real well for me this past year, at least on paper. That’s what a lot of people are saying these days, I guess, so I’m no exception. My $40 billion made a profit of 10% in the first year. It actually was a bad year for him, he told me. Usually he makes 12% or 15% for his clients. But still, 10% of $40 billion is $4 billion, and I thought I could live on that for a year. Actually, what he did, since I am his biggest customer, was to sweeten it a little bit. He gave me 11% instead of the 10%, since he said he felt bad about it being so little, and so he made a note on my monthly statement that it would be 11% for me. That was Bernie. Generous to a fault with his friends, giving me an extra $400,000,000 percentage point just like that. It just goes to show you. Well, if I had made the fact of my $30 billion

loss public in the legal filings, I really saw no possibility of ever getting my money back. Why am I doing so now? Well, the media is going to add it all up and see that there is $30 billion missing. And soon, they will trace it all back to me. So I might as well confess here in Dan’s Papers ahead of time. TaDa! Scoop! Remember you read about this in Dan’s Papers first. But you know, today I’ve noticed it’s not all that bad letting this secret out. I stopped at the Candy Kitchen in Bridgehampton for my morning coffee today, and the people there pretended not to notice me, which was nice, leaving me with my privacy like that. Then I heard one person whisper to somebody, “That was the guy who had the $30 billion.” And then, after I paid for my coffee and headed for the door, three people got up and held it open for me. Later, when I got to work, I found that I’d already had five phone calls. Christie Brinkley wants to know if I’m free for lunch tomorrow. And there’s this party in Southampton that Calvin Klein wants to know if I can come to. Donald Trump called. Oprah called. And then there was the note from Paris Hilton. Later in the afternoon, I walked out through the parking lot and overheard somebody whisper, “I wonder what he was going to do with that $30 billion.” Well, I don’t know. Ask Bernie.

Amagansett author and editor James Brady recently passed away at the age of 80. Over the years he served in top positions at Star, Women’s Wear Daily, Harper’s Bazaar and New York. He created the New York Post’s “Page Six” column, and also authored several books based on his experience in the Marines. His most recent book, Why Marines Fight, was released in 2007. * * * Actress and Hamptons regular Renee Zellweger was recently seen enjoying a cozy date with MSNBC legal correspondent Dan Abrams at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor. * * * The Sag Harbor home owned by Arlene Alda, wife of actor Alan Alda, has finally been sold. In a sign of the times, the three-bedroom Colonial was originally listed in the summer of 2007 for $799,000, and sold at the beginning of this year for $550,000. The home reportedly housed the Alda family’s domestic staff for many years. * * * Amagansett’s Sarah Jessica Parker will be joining co-stars and Hamptons fans Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis in a Sex and the City sequel. The deal was just announced by writer/director Michael Patrick King, and release is planned for summer 2010. * * * The Hamptons will be featured in a new season of “The Real Housewives of New York City.” The show will include last season’s stars as well as newcomer Kelly Killoren Bensimon. * * * East Hampton resident Steven Spielberg officially joined forces with Mickey Mouse this week. After a distribution deal between Spielberg’s DreamWorks Studios and Universal fell apart, Walt Disney Studios stepped in. Disney will reportedly market at least six DreamWorks live-action movies each year produced through DreamWorks’ agreement with India’s Reliance BIG Entertainment. * * * Actor Richard Kind, who has summered in the Hamptons and appeared in Rough Crossing and The Lady in Question at Bay Street Theatre, is now starring in Jeffrey Sweet’s Flyovers at the 78th Street Theatre Lab in Manhattan. He can be seen in the production through February 15. * * * Samantha Brown, host of the Travel Channel’s “Passport to Great Weekends,” was a highlight of the New York Times Travel Show at the Jacob Javitts Center last weekend. Over 500 people listened to Brown’s best and worst trips around the world, and her adventures in eating duck tongue and hugging a panda bear.




In an article about hate crime in Suffold County several issues ago, Dan’s Papers wrote that much of it is taking place in the southwestern part of the county, where “white teenagers go out to beat up Hispanics.” It might have been interpreted to mean that we thought all white teenagers in that area were bigots, and that, of course is not the case. A vast majority of teenagers everywhere in the county abhor what a few have done.

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner Honoring the Artist: Growing A Beard There are two types of men: those who choose to grow a beard, and those who choose not to. Every guy, at some point in his life, entertains the idea of growing serious facial hair, whether a loud mustache, a goatee or a full beard. But there are plenty of guys out there who, for one reason or another, shave every single day of their lives. I’ve always been one of those guys. Since the age of 13 (okay, 16) I’ve been shaving my face, never once daring to grow even a mustache. I was determined to look clean cut without ever venturing into the unknown world of facial hair. I didn’t want to know that world. It’s taken a decade, but now, at 26, I’ve finally ventured into the wonderful world of beard-dom. I have to say I’m enjoying every minute of it. I decided to grow a beard over a drink with my friend Colin about two weeks ago. Colin has a pretty impressive beard, and when he heard that I had never once grown one, he freaked out. “You must grow a beard! It is a rite of passage! Are you telling me you’re going to go through your whole life never knowing what it’s like!?” When he put it that way, as if it was some kind of life experience, I was somewhat sold. Once I tentatively said I’d do it, I knew there was no turning back. It was now a matter of honor. Two weeks later, I have a pretty heavy beard going and I have to say that growing a beard is a pleasant experience on so many levels it’s ridiculous. The first few days feel like you’re taking a real risk with everything in your life. It’s like living on the edge, only scruffier. A few looks from a

few co-workers, perhaps a compliment on the sexy (is it sexy?) scruffiness, and then it’s over. By day five, the real fun begins. By then, I looked in the mirror and instantly felt different. Who is this older, wiser, more mature person staring back at me? I need to ask this guy a question. He looks serious. And then the transformation begins. After a week, I noticed a change in myself. Believe it or not, I actually felt more normal and confident than usual. I think this has to do with living here, where many locals have some kind of facial hair. I felt like I fit in better. But I also found myself trying to dress better to let people know that I cared about myself and that I wasn’t just being lazy and not shaving. I learned two other thing about a beard. First, I felt more natural in dress clothes. Usually, if I dress up I feel like I’m over doing it. Who do I think I am? But with a beard, I feel like a guy who’s trying to look his best. Second, a beard is an immediate signal to people that you’re an adult. You’re treated as such and you feel as such. In my entire life, even when buying a cup of coffee, I’ve always felt I’m looked at as “the good kid” or “the young man.” With a beard, I feel more serious, so I act more serious and hence people take me more seriously. It’s a feeling, but I’m telling you, I notice the difference buying a cup of coffee. No, I don’t want hot chocolate, but if I did, it would be a serious hot chocolate. Lastly, the wonderful world of growing a beard (and even after two weeks, I am still growing one) is its incredible and remarkable ability to casually hide a double chin.

Doug Zider This week’s cover by Doug Zider is a real “upper,” raising our spirits in the middle of winter, giving us an image of vim and vigor. Besides the energetic, yet mysterious mood that the painting evokes, Zider’s aesthetics are invigorating. We see in the piece arresting juxtapositions of elements: vital contrasts between shapes, light and background/foreground configurations. As such, the work has succinct definition, allowing us to remember the image long after it has disappeared from our view. Even so, it’s often hard for Zider to capture the memory of the object itself, like the sun coming up. Look away for ten seconds, and it’s gone. Q: How is the winter influencing your painting? Or is it? A: Every winter I do a water scene, even though some mornings you just see mist and not the water. But the sky dictates everything anyway. On a personal level, winter is getting to me; it would be nice to spend a month and a half where the temperature is not below freezing. Q: Talking about influence, I am fascinated by your long-time position at NBC in graphic arts and how that has determined how you paint. A: Despite the fact that everything is now computerized I think students wanting to enter the field should have an art background, composition, and, of course, computer training. But since we have to meet deadlines on every project, I tend to work quickly on my own work and then go on to another after that. Q: What do you really think of computerized and digital technology? A: Art is what I decided to do for the rest of my life. Art has kept my life good. If I get paid for it, it’s all the sweeter. The bottom line is, an artist has to produce. They can lock him up, but he still has to pass his work under the door. Q: Are you saying that no matter the technology or technique, art is art and often fine art? A: Yes. Some of the most famous illustrators, like Norman Rockwell who worked for magazines, were fine artists despite the technique. Q: Are digital artists fine artists, too? A: We have to accept that digital is here. But we can’t let machines do it all. If someone likes my work, I like to know that I did it, not a machine. How will people remember you? You want to make sure you leave your footsteps behind. Q: How can you do that? A: Produce the most you can in the time you have. You never know what’s around the corner.

Noose in the Woods East Hampton, Southampton & County Police Race to the Scene By Dan Rattiner Here are two small town stories. THE NOOSE Last Sunday, some hikers walking in the woods north of the Montauk Highway near Widow Gavits Road came upon a noose hanging from a tree. It was alongside the wide path where the high-tension electric lines come through overhead, a favorite path for motocross bikers these days. Immediately, the thought went through the minds of the hikers that there must be a bigot about. So one of them called the East Hampton Town Police on his cell phone. A bigot hanging nooses about in the town of East Hampton was an alarming thought to the police department. They dispatched two officers in one of their four-wheel drive vehicles who, in short order, arrived at the offending location where the hikers were waiting.

After talking with them for a bit, one of the officers, messing with his police radio, had a conversation with headquarters which led them to believe that, according to a GPS system the police have, that the tree and its noose may not in fact be in East Hampton at all, but in Southampton Town. It appeared that it was about ten feet over the line. After talking a bit further, they became sure of it. It was a Southampton matter. And so, a four-wheel vehicle from the Southampton Town Police Department was dispatched to the scene. It never occurred to anybody there that this noose would only have been in the Town of Southampton until two years ago. It was two years ago that the 600 residents of Sagaponack, concerned about their future, had formally incorporated themselves as an entity separate from

the Town of Southampton, and in fact the ground upon which they were now standing was in fact in the Village of Sagaponack. The failure to realize that fact might have been because the information about the jurisdictional update had not yet been entered into the GPS systems. Or it just might have been due to habit. Since Colonial times, if there was trouble in Southampton, you called Southampton. In any case, the officers from the Southampton Town Police force soon arrived to look at the noose, and they decided that this was a hate crime investigation. As of one month ago, hate crimes in the Town of Southampton are no longer handled by the Southampton Town Police. Due to the passage of a new ordinance, they are automatically turned over to the Suffolk County (continued on next page)

RALLY IN SOUTHAMPTON ON IMMIGRATION By T.J. Clemente The illegal immigration issue is currently being overshadowed by the present economic crisis throughout the world. However it came front and center here recently because of Facundo Gonzalez, a construction worker who died in Southampton Hospital from injuries he sustained when a collapsed foundation buried him at a job site on 232 North Sea Road in Southampton. Over a month later, Gonzalez’ legal status in this country is still unclear. That is being investigated, along with how he died and who might be responsible. This last Sunday, demonstrations were held in his honor at the site to bring attention to the plight of workers not protected properly on many job sites across the country. (At one time there

were more news people at the demonstration than participants.) The protesters in attendance represented groups such as Organizacion Latino Americano of Eastern Long Island, Long Island Immigrant Alliance, The Immigrant Worker Occupational Health and Safety Committee of the Workplace Projects, Jobs with Justice and the East Hampton Anti-Bias Task Force. With fewer than 75 people arriving throughout the day, Saul Linares of the Workplace Project started things off with his megaphone by saying, “We are here to protect the workers who have come here to build this great nation and to remember those who die at the work place trying to have a better living.” Executive Director of the The Workplace Project, Nadia Marin Molina, stated a need for

more site inspection and supervision, adding that it is tragic that shortcuts are taken because the lives of certain workers are not deemed valuable enough to warrant proper safety precautions. Across the street was Tom Wedell who owns a home improvement business that at one time employed 30 workers. His believes the immigrant worker situation has gotten out of hand. “In a country of laws, the existing laws are not being enforced,” said Wedell. “Therefore, 20 million jobs have been taken by 20 million illegal workers and, in an effort to perhaps save money, no supervisors were in proper position on that job.” (continued on page 20)

Sheriff. No other town nor village on the East End, not Sagaponack nor East Hampton nor Quogue nor Southold, has even considered such a law. They all take care of hate crimes themselves. But not Southampton. As everybody waited for the arrival of the sheriff’s deputies, there was some conversation about the wisdom of Southampton’s decision to turn everything over to the County. Three weeks ago, the State of New York, unhappy with reports by citizens of Suffolk County that hate crimes reported to them are frequently just put in the round file, opened an investigation into their practices. (Suffolk County says there was only one hate crime in the whole county in 2008.) Of course, after a fashion, the sheriff’s deputies did arrive in a four wheel, and, true to form, they looked at the noose and announced as far as they were concerned, there had been no hate crime committed there. “To have a hate crime,” one of them said, “you have to have a victim. There doesn’t seem to be a victim.” Everyone looked around. Indeed, there seemed to be no victim. So then everybody went home. By the way, you might wonder what would have happened if Sagaponack had been called. The answer is that Sagaponack does not have a police force yet. They’ve temporarily contracted for police services with the Town of Southampton. So it all would have wound up with the sheriff’s deputies anyway. THE MONEY The next day, a Monday, there was a public work session of the town supervisor, the town

board, the town comptroller and any other interested citizens who wanted to sit in, about the Poxabogue Golf Course on the Montauk Highway in the Village of Sagaponack. The reason for the meeting was for the Town to discuss whether it wanted to pony up $750,000 to improve the golf course by adding a putting green and a chipping apron where the pros might give golf lessons. More golf lessons means more golfers means more revenue. The Poxabogue Golf Club was, four years ago, purchased jointly by the Town of East Hampton and the Town of Southampton. This was before the formation of the Village of Sagaponack. What happened four years ago was that Southampton Town decided it should purchase the club, a public nine-hole golf course, to keep it from the clutches of developers. But they couldn’t afford it. What they could afford was to ask East Hampton Town to help them. The course was located just 100 yards or so on the Southampton side of the town line, and so it would be used by people from both towns. East Hampton Town, to its credit — Jay Schneiderman was the Town Supervisor at the time — decided to go half with Southampton. They formed a corporation, and each town would own half. All monies needed by the golf club would be paid equally by Southampton and East Hampton. So there was this meeting. Oddly, just before the meeting, the Mayor of the Village of Sagaponack, Donald Louchheim, called the Town of Southampton, livid that Sagaponack was not being included in all this. This was also a Sagaponack matter now. He, the Sagaponack

mayor, wanted to be there. But Southampton turned him down. They owned it with East Hampton through this corporation. It was just a private business now that happened to be in Sagaponack. There would be too many cooks. The meeting to discuss Southampton’s half of the cost for the improvements now began. The improvements were described. The estimated costs of each were stated. A few private citizens spoke up in favor of the $1.5 million cost, of which Southampton would pay half. A few private citizens, who lived near the golf course, spoke in opposition. There would be more activity, more noise, more golf balls falling from the skies. And then, one of the board members spoke and said he wondered if they should be taking on any new expenses in these hard times. And then this exchange happened. “It is of concern to me that the $35 million posted in the Town’s Capital Account does not match the $16 million of actual cash that the town has on hand.” This was said by Southampton’s new Town Supervisor, Linda Kabot. Anna Throne-Holst, another new member of the Town Board, then said, “That’s news to me. When did that happen?” And then Councilman Chris Nuzzi said, “Why are we just finding out about this?” “We’re supposed to be talking about the golf course,” somebody said. “That’s what’s on the agenda.” But a discrepancy of $19 million unaccounted (continued on page 24)

Oops Mars Passes Gas, Ugo in the Co-op & Bernie Madoff’s Apology By Dan Rattiner I don’t know if you knew this, but Bernie Madoff sent out a letter of apology the other day. It was not to any of the thousands of families he has ruined by defrauding them of their savings. It was to the neighbors in his luxury apartment building on Park Avenue, where he is under house arrest in his duplex apartment. In the letter, he apologized for the army of reporters and photographers stationed on the sidewalk just outside the lobby day and night. “Dear Neighbors,” he wrote. “Please accept my profound apologies for the terrible inconvenience that I have caused over the past weeks. Ruth and I appreciate the support we have received. Best regards, Bernard Madoff.” One imagines that the neighbors, particular-

ly the co-op board, are pretty testy about all the goings on as they try to go in and out of the building. Of course, they love Bernie and Ruth. And it sure is a shame that Bernie got himself in this mess. It is not to his credit that he fleeced his rich friends out of an amount of money in excess of the gross domestic product of Bulgaria. Co-op neighbors in these high-end buildings can indeed be pretty sensitive. There is, for example, the current battle going on about a dog in a co-op onWest 26th Street. Everybody wants the dog out, even though the co-op rules permit dogs in the building. Since the dog remains, the board has moved to evict the family that has the dog. The attempt is being spearheaded by CNN

correspondent Soledad O’Brien, who owns another apartment in the building and who is the secretary on the co-op board. She presented a 20-page long affidavit to a city housing judge adjudicating this case about this 150-pound bull mastiff. Mastiffs are among the largest and most affectionate dog in the world, and this one, named Ugo, belongs to Steven and Monica Lyons and their children, who have for many years lived in the $3 million, 4,000 square foot apartment on the eighth floor. The dog arrived in November 2007. The encounters with it mostly take place in the elevator. “This dog’s size, slobbering, shedding, drool(continued on page 24)

BRAIN FOOD: EAT LESS, KNOW MORE By Susan M. Galardi Dieting makes you smart. That’s the message from a study conducted at the University of Munster in Germany. The results indicated that even short-term, minimal weight loss can give your mind a good jolt. Participants who cut their normal caloric intake by 30% had better scores on a word-learning task based on memory, suggesting sharper mental function. One group was assigned to the caloric restriction (CR) regime, but still ate at least 1,200 calories; a second group added or substituted heart-healthy fats to their diets, the third group made no changes. After three

months, the CR group, in addition to losing an average of eight pounds, was the only one that showed significant mental improvements. The more weight lost, the better the verbal memory score. So there were two legitimate reasons to commit to a diet. Lose weight, get smart. I decided to give it a try. I wouldn’t change anything about my diet, I’d just eat 1/3 less than usual. Last week we had a pizza at work. I’d already eaten a small sandwich at around 11:00, but by the time the pizza arrived at 1:00, I was hungry. Because I didn’t forgo 1/3 of the sandwich, I wasn’t thinking clearly so I ate a piece of pizza. I

wrote myself a PostIt note, reminding me to eat 1/3 less, and inked a little “30%” sign on my right hand. Later, at dinner, I put 30% less rice and 70% of a chicken breast on my plate. I didn’t cut down on the salad. That never counts. For dessert, my son had cookie dough ice cream. Because I was so mentally alert from my CR dinner, I remembered that I had eaten half a chocolate croissant, so I passed on the ice cream. How wise of me. It was working already! As our son slurped his cone and picked out the little chunky parts, my brain was on fire. (continued on page 20)

fair, humane, but legal way? Facundo Gonzalez is perhaps a causality of a failed policy of neglect of responsibility by the federal government. Congressman Tim Bishop, still celebrating the inauguration, can not call it the failed Bush policy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for him, as a member of the reigning party, to do something it. The policy in place now is the Obama/Bishop Policy.

But how much smarter do I have to get, really? Arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I intelligent enough? If I get any smarter, I might start analyzing every life choice. Then what? I had a few bites of cereal. It calmed my mind. Then I remembered something else. About five years ago, I had gone on the Atkins diet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; really did it by the book. Absolutely no carbs at the beginning. Not so much as a leaf of arugula. The first day I felt great. Filled with energy and the excitement of being able to eat large portions of bacon. By the second day, I started to feel a little woozy, speedy. By day three I felt faint, my head was spinning and I thought I might pass out. I lay on the couch and my partner spoon-fed me Ben & Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ice cream. That brought me back to a calm and happy feeling which leads to an urge to stay on the couch and

watch TV. With the mental agility of an air traffic controller, I snapped myself out of that reverie and back to the present, finished my cereal and went to work. I was productive that day. Sharp as a tack, if not a little on the edge by 11 a.m. Someone left a tray of blondies by the coffee machine. I cut off a piece, then, remembering my diet, made the intelligent decision to remove 1/3 of the chunk I was about to eat. Well wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I the smarty pants? It went on like this for a week. I felt great. I felt quick-witted. I felt accomplished. I felt â&#x20AC;Ś Hungry. And a bit mentally exhausted from all that thinking. And then, like a shot from the dark, something very important came to mind: I remembered how much I hated dieting.


Memories came flooding back. I recalled how much I love cookie dough. I remembered with crystalline clarity how perfectly it goes with vanilla ice cream. As I was about to stick a spoon into the carton, I remembered something else: I was on a diet. The next morning at breakfast, my mental acuity was almost overtaken by ravenous hunger, but I could still make out the â&#x20AC;&#x153;30%â&#x20AC;? sign on my hand so I poured a 2/3-portion of cereal into the bowl. No doubt, this dieting had really got me thinking. And thinking. Although I was mostly thinking about dieting: How long I could keep it up? How much more would I remember if I reduced portions further? What if I increased my coffee intake? Would it create that speedy feeling that results in uncontrollable talking?

DAN'S PAPERS, February 13, 2009 Page 21

Who’s Here By Debbie Tuma As a white man growing up in Alabama during the 1940s and ‘50s, Bob Zellner knew all too well the helpless feeling of witnessing prejudice. Born in 1939 in a small town of Jay on the panhandle of Florida, five miles from the Alabama border, Zellner was raised in East Brewton, Alabama, which is separated from its wealthy neighbor, Brewton, by Murder Creek — named for the lynchings that occurred there. “When I was growing up, Brewton was the richest town in America,” said Zellner, who now lives in Southampton. “All my life, I heard ‘Boy, you were raised on the wrong side of Murder Creek.’” Many decades later, after being recruited personally by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to serve in the civil rights movement and after being arrested 18 times in six states while an activist in the Freedom Movement, Zellner uses that statement for the title of his new book. The Wrong Side of Murder Creek: A White Southerner in the Freedom Movement, published last November by New South Books, is memoir of Zellner’s life-long activism that he has been documenting for over 20 years. “I started writing it in the ‘80s and I’d keep putting it down to get involved in organizing,” he said. “When I went back to graduate school in the ‘90s, I wrote it to serve as my PhD dissertation in history.” More recently, Constance Curry, who worked with Zellner in the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), helped him edit the book, and Julian Bond, head of the National NAACP, wrote the introduction. Zellner has also worked closely with Lucius Ware, head of the local NAACP, on various projects. Zellner wrote the book “because I wanted young people to know that the civil rights movement was both blacks and whites ... it was a people’s movement,” he said during a phone interview from his hotel in Savannah last week, where he and his wife, Linda, were participating in a book fair. The Wrong Side is also being optioned for a movie, with his friend Spike Lee as executive producer and Barry Alexander Brown as directorscreenwriter. “This book was always very visual and movie-like to me, because I remembered it as events, with sounds and sights,” said Zellner, who will travel to Alabama to to get permission to shoot there. After graduating from Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama in 1961, with an honors degree in sociology and psychology, Zellner joined the SNCC. He was the first white southerner to serve as Field Secretary for this group, which tried to do away with segregation and prejudice through non-violent means. “I say to people, I didn’t get involved with this group just to help black people, I did it to free myself as well,” Zellner said.

lence against the white population.” Zellner was to try to register black people to vote. “This was in 1963. Blacks would be killed if they registered to vote or actually voted,” he recalled. In Louisiana, Zellner was charged with criminal anarchy for trying to visit a staff member who was arrested for doing sit-ins. He had the same charge in Baton Rouge, and got arrested for his organizing efforts in Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, Connecticut and Massachusetts. From ‘63-‘65, Zellner studied race relations in the Graduate School of Sociology at Brandeis University. During Mississippi Freedom in 1964, he traveled with Rita Schwerner while taking part in SNCC’s and CORE’s investigation of the disappearance of her husband, Mickey, as well as James Chaney and Andrew Goodman. When SNCC became an all-black organization in 1967, Zellner joined the Southern Conference Educational Fund to organize an anti-racism project for black and white workers in the Deep South. During the ‘60s, Zellner worked on documentary and feature films, traveling to Europe, Africa, the Caribbean and Mexico. The film, Mississippi Burning so bothered him (he felt the role of the FBI was distorted) that he lectured at college campuses on the “real history” of the struggle. In 2000, closer to his Southampton home, Zellner suffered a broken elbow at the hands of the town police, when, as chairman of the Southampton Town Anti-Bias Task Force, he mediated a dispute between the police and the Shinnecock Nation. Police attacked Zellner and members of the tribe who were protecting their ancestral burial grounds from proposed development. They were charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. But in 2007, a Federal jury ruled that Zellner and the Shinnecocks were victims of false arrest, malicious prosecution, and denial of civil rights, and they were awarded compensatory and punitive damages. In addition to finishing the 20-year book project, Zellner’s biggest moment was when he recently attended the inauguration of President Barack Obama, along with his friends Julian Bond, Frank Smith, of SNCC, and Congressman John Lewis, of Georgia. “I never would have dreamed we’d have a black president in my lifetime, and I was with Obama when he kicked off his campaign in Selma, Alabama,” said Zellner. “He understood the heart of the civil rights movement, which is non-violent, and he introduced non-violent politics to the world for the first time. His campaign organized a huge, diverse army of nonviolent people and it will make a big difference in the world.” Zellner is working on a second book, Night Snow, based on his diaries of the Obama campaign. He has several upcoming events in the Hamptons. (See Day by Day, page 46.)

” I wanted young people to know the civil rights movement was blacks and whites ... a people’s movement.” Many times, Zellner was restricted from activities due to the segregation laws. While at Huntingdon, he and four others were asked to resign from school for going to hear Dr. Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks speak. “We were doing a paper for sociology, and Dr. King had told us that we could come hear him speak, but we might get arrested,” Zellner recalled. “We were accused of being troublemakers and subversives, because we were breaking the segregation laws.” Zellner worked for Dr. King’s organization, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and they ended up in jail together in Albany, Georgia, in December of 1961. He was convicted of his civil rights pursuits, and he was sentenced to serve in the Georgia chain gang, which he did. In his book, the chapter “Working on the Chain Gang” tells of that experience. Zellner also writes about being arrested in Danville, Virginia, on the same charge that John Brown was hanged on, namely, “inciting the black population to acts of war and vio-

High End Market Wanes; Money Waits By T.J. Clemente The “high end” real estate market has always been a different animal. Homes over $10 million were typically bought and sold by the people who were, to quote the old phrase, “recession proof.” However times have changed forever. A senior V.P. at Merrill Lynch calls the current state of affairs, “high end postponement of consumption.” He believes many of the affluent are afraid to take any risks now, considering their net worth is down as much as 30% (which is, by the way, about the same as the decline of the S&P on Wall Street). He also mentioned the decimation of the “imposters” — those who used leverage to appear high end but have now been exposed financially. He said, “They are the panic sellers, they just don’t have the resources to carry the loads of leveraged cars, homes, the whole life style.” But the Merrill exec also predicted the end result will still be “pent up consumption,” meaning that, when the dust settles, confidence will return and people will address their neglected needs by buying new shoes, new cars, and eventually, new homes for the kids or nicer digs for themselves. That may be in the future, but the fact is that right now, compared to 2004, the sales volume of homes over $10 million has dropped more drastically than any other price point in every town on the East End. A reason for the drop in activity in the high end market may be the availability of “jumbo” mortgages.” Greg McBride,

senior financial analyst at, reportedly said “More money down is the big reason people aren’t taking [jumbo mortgages] out … It takes good credit but you need 30% down or more, and even those people are paying an interest rate of more than 7%.” Potential buyers hear about the lowest rates in years — some as low as 4.5% — but where are they? Only people with nearly perfect if not 100% perfect credit scores can apply and expect any sort of positive results. Not to mention, those rates apply to lower sums, not jumbos. Recently, the Suffolk District Attorney has begun to investigate a possible mortgage fraud, stemming from a Westhampton firm where records for the last 30 years were seized. These reports don’t exactly instill consumer confidence. Reacting to this comment, the Merrill Lynch Senior V.P. said, “That’s true, but it’s about more than confidence. It’s about not waiting to blow the money many were given and, quite frankly, have no clue on how to replace. They don’t know how to recreate the $90 million that their grandfather left them. Some have lost trust in people like me because they think I gave them bad advice, not seeing the market’s downturn ... Who saw this mess coming?” Martin Mayer, the Brookings Institute

Scholar, actually did. In his recent talk at the Shelter Island Library, he said, “The bubble had to burst on so many levels. Quite frankly too many people had no idea what they were doing.” The marketing of “toxic assets,” the term for bad mortgages on homes that are higher than what the home is worth, are being compounded with the value of the home falling and no way for the owner to sell it. That problem is still growing. But, strangely, there is still one sector that is unaffected by the downturn: custom work on existing mega-estates, and the creation of new ones. Bulgin and Associates, a firm serving the top end building needs for the last 25 years, has not seen a downturn yet, perhaps due to the three-year time lag on their continuing 15 projects. However new long range planning is a touch softer. A conclusion would have to be that when the various economic markets stabilize, and when a system to market the ”toxic assets” and value them comes into being, stability will occur. Then, activity on all housing will pick up, slowly at first. Perhaps the first properties to move will be in the high end housing sector because, in the words of F. Scott Fitzgerald, “The rich are different.” What he didn’t say was, “and they still have lots of serious money.”

for, at a town meeting where the total budget for the town for the year is just $80 million, could not be denied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I need real numbers,â&#x20AC;? said Throne-Holst, turning to the Deputy Supervisor Richard Blowes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working on getting a report,â&#x20AC;? he said, looking at the new Town Comptroller, Steve Brautigan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I should be able to get you a report on the capital budget and where everything went by April.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;April?â&#x20AC;? Councilman Nuzzi asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not soon enough.â&#x20AC;? People had in their minds a big ledger, with the numbers on it, and just adding them or subtracting them as necessary, and then presenting such a report about it. Was somebody hiding something? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a problem for six years,â&#x20AC;? said Supervisor Kabot, suggesting that she had just stepped up to the plate here 80 days ago and now look at what she had found. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think some of this lands at the feet of our prior Town Comptroller, Charlene Kagel,â&#x20AC;? said Blowes. Where did the $19 million go? Reporters and TV people covering this meeting now began scurrying around. The next day, they got to talk to Charlene Kagel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried to tell them some of these things about the budget,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to hear it. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be a transition from comptroller to comptroller. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it. They threw me out.â&#x20AC;? The reporters scurried over later that day to

talk to Blowes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She walked out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They insulted me,â&#x20AC;? Kagel said when the reporters scurried back to her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d take her back to help us,â&#x20AC;? Blowes retorted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let her look at the books anymore. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a private citizen now.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $19 million smackeroonies. Where did it go? Lurking in the background of all of this was the knowledge that in neighboring East Hampton Town, it had been found just six months ago that the newly re-elected Town Supervisor Bill McGintee, had used $8 million in funds set aside specifically for parks and preservation to patch up a severe budget shortfall heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d built up during his first term. When it was reported that there was no shortfall and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d balanced the budget, he won his re-election. Then he reported the shortfall. So there you are. The noose hangs in the woods. And some politicians are chasing each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tails around Southampton Town Hall looking for $19 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all there in the spreadsheets,â&#x20AC;? Kagel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to read them. They wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let me tell them. They probably havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made any entries in the capital budget since they took office. They probably donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know where it is.â&#x20AC;? AS WE GO TO PRESS weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned that by reading the existing accounting records correctly, the town board has determined that the missing funds are not $19 million, but $250.000. Whew! Well thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay I guess. A buck here, a buck there.

ing, gassiness and odors are appalling,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien wrote. The dog has left them no choice but to move to evict its owners. According to the court papers, Lyons has made numerous attempts to placate the neighbors. He has begun taking Ugo to a pet grooming salon three times a week. He spritzes him with orange scented deodorizer. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even offered to take the dog up and down in the freight elevator. But the board voted against that request. No one knows how this will turn out. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big deal to force a family out because they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up a dog. And where would they go? These two news items came to mind the other day when I read that the planet Mars has just emitted the largest burst of methane gas into space ever recorded in the history of the solar system. A NASA Mars Rover discovered it. It came out of an enormous hole in the planet that leads down into the very bowels of the place. Methane is, of course, the main ingredient in a fart. The amount of methane is, apparently, beyond measure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is exciting,â&#x20AC;? said Indiana University scientist Lisa Pratt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It raises the possibility of life on Mars. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prudent that we begin to explore Mars for the possibility of a life form thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhaling this methane.â&#x20AC;? I think we need to call an emergency meeting of the planets of the solar system to consider evicting Mars. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no excuse for this. There is not even a letter apologizing for this behavior. I think the sooner this matter is put behind us the better.

Left, Left, Left, Left, Left, Left, Left and Left By Dan Rattiner It’s been so damn cold. I woke up yesterday morning and it was 12 degrees and with the wind blowing in across Three Mile Harbor, five below with the wind chill. I was alone in the house, my wife was in New York City, and I dressed to go off to work at the paper in Bridgehampton. But there was a problem. In my heavy coat, the one I had worn the day before, there was only one glove, the left one. This was bad. It gets colder. This was my last pair of gloves. Now I only have one glove. Where could the right glove be? I figured it could turn up. But it was not good that this was a left. I had gone off the day before with this pair of fur-lined gloves, and two other black gloves, which I thought could be backup gloves, but which turned out to be lefts. Now I had three left gloves. And it was bitter cold out. There is a place on the floor in the front hall closet of our house where we have a plastic container that sometimes contains scarves and gloves. I’d seen black gloves in there, so I squatted down, opened the box and went through it. I found five more black gloves. A jackpot of them. All lefts. The cleaning lady came in at this point. She asked me what I was doing there squatting in front of the closet and I told her I was looking for gloves and asked if she had seen any. She said she had put all she found in the container.

I stood up. I was holding eight left gloves. I walked them into the kitchen and set them all in a row on the kitchen counter. Some were knitted, some leather, some were lightweight and some were furlined. None of them matched. And none were rights. She started laughing. “I’ll look around,” she said. While I got my stuff together and got my coat on, she was here and there. I could hear drawers opening and closing. “Nothing,” she said to me at the front door. “Maybe you could cut off the thumbs of four of them and stitch them on the other side,” I said. She laughed some more. I laughed. I had my hands in my pockets. I did try putting the most wiggily of the knitted lefts on my right hand. It was close, but I thought it was just too uncomfortable. I took it off. “Take them all with you,” she said. “Maybe you’ll find some rights at work.” I went to work. No gloves. In the afternoon, I went to Kmart in the shopping center there and found they did not have gloves anymore. They are looking to sell clothes for springtime. As I was driving out of the mall, I saw all the used clothes bins for the poor from St. Anthony all lined up next to the police station annex

behind the Gap. There were eight clothes bins. It’s a big business. I thought, I should put one left glove in each bin as some sort of sick joke, but then I thought it would be an even better sick joke if I put all eight lefts in one bin. It would be at a church on another cold day and all these poor people would be lined up, and they’d take out these eight gloves and be so excited and then they’d see they were all lefts and boy, would they be pissed. Why are only the rights lost? Maybe it’s how you take your gloves off. Most of us are righties. We take off our right gloves first, put it in a safe place, think, “Now my gloves are safe,” then take off the left and bingo, we forget to put it with the other. Back at the office, on a shelf above the fax machine, I found a right. This is a dream, I thought. I should kick myself to see if I am still awake. It’s like a gift from God. Did it match any of the others? No. But it was close. It turned sunny around four and the temperature got up into the twenties. I went down to the beach and ran around at sunset. My hands were toasty warm, each one inside a proper glove. It was wonderful.ent home and went to bed, carefully putting both gloves on the mantelpiece above the fireplace in the bedroom. This morning, the right is gone again.

Donating Blood On The North Fork By Phyllis Lombardi It’s tough, after all these years, to admit it. My husband is definitely not my type. Nor, as a matter of fact, are a number of my friends. Oh, they may all be kind, have a sense of humor, work and play hard. But still. If I were called upon to help one of them in a crisis, I wouldn’t, I couldn’t. Husband and friends are Type O. I’m a A. That’s blood type, obviously. While my husband and friends are not in need right now, and I hope that’s true of you, they’d have to depend on strangers, not me, for the gift of life. That’s why the North Fork’s many winter blood drives are so vital. Like the blood drive a little while back at Southold Library on Main Road in Southold. On that Friday afternoon, Long Island Blood Services had a great group of workers at the library. Tony Giuffrida, with LIBS for 15 years, admitted he was the PIC man. That’s “person in charge,” said Tony. This PIC guy does more than supervise. He’s donated over seven gallons of blood through the years. It must agree with him ’cause he looked big and strong and healthy to me. Tony said the oldest blood donor he recalls was a 92-year-old woman. That lady had a note from her doctor. I don’t know the doc’s age. Working with Tony were LIBS drivers Frank McCurry and Tony Chevres. Frank said the job was

the best he ever had. “It has meaning,” said Frank, and Tony agreed. They go home at night knowing their whole day was devoted to helping others. Now for the donors, who, I noticed, checked out the food table for their after-donation treats. Things like Oreo cookies, Lorna Doones, fruit juices, packages of Trail Mix. Such sweet rewards. And besides, you have to keep that energy up. One of the first donors on line was Virginia Gilmore of Southold. She gives blood three or four time a year. I bet she’s an inspiration to her own three children and to the many young people she teaches in her Southold High School French classes. Bon jour and tres bien, Virginia. That’s all the French I remember. But it seems appropriate now. Speaking of students, Magdalena Szalowski was on line, ready to donate. Magdalena graduated from Riverhead High School last June and heads to Northeastern University in Boston right about now. Magdalena said she tried to give blood when she was a 16-year-old but was “shooed away.” Good luck, Magdalena, as we shoo you off to college. You want luck? When Southold’s Mona McCarthy had a serious fall a few months ago, her daughter, Maureen McCarthy, packed up and came from her San Francisco home to help out for the duration. Maureen’s and R.N. who has given blood many times and worked as a nurse at San Quentin, California’s

oldest (1852) prison. Anyway, Maureen had just heard of an auto accident in Southold and that spurred her into yet another donation at the library. Southold’s Jane Reilly has a mom story, too. Her mother, 93-year-old Libby Meredith, also of Southold, volunteered with LIBS for more than 25 years. And Libby gave blood during that time. So mom was daughter’s inspiration. Oh yeah. Jane and I have something in common besides blood donations. We like the Lorna Doones best. Though they’re much smaller than years ago, don’t you think? Yes, there were guy-givers. Steve Polla is a Nassau county police officer who donates blood both at work (Massapequa) and at home (Southold). Steve began donating at work in 1990 and said police officers all over Long Island give lots of blood. They see the need on a daily basis, he said. And that need, in the United States, is constant and tremendous -38,000 pints of blood each day. So raise your cup of fruit juice in a toast to the North Fork donor. Each one would give you the shirt off his back. And that’s just for starters. P.S. Want to donate? You have to weigh at least 110 pounds. And be between 17 and 76. If you’re over 76, get your doc’s permission. This too – no tattoos in the preceding 12-month period. Guess no problem if you’re that 92-year-old donor.

North Fork Real Estate By T.J. Clemente It’s all going to happen first on the North Fork. In the last year I have written over 30 articles on real estate on the East End of Long Island. I have interviewed founders of leading national mortgage companies, real estate companies, builders, and public officials. I have had to go over quarterly published results on home sales and based on these experiences I have a very good prediction for the North Fork for 2009. Recovery is going to start on the North Fork. With medium prices in the $500,000 range, the North Fork will be the first choice of soon to retire baby boomers who due to down sized savings will go

for value for their retirement home. Everyone has always said that the North Fork is in fact a very beautiful, natural undisturbed part of Long Island that still has the charm of small town America along with the values of a smart investment. Access to great beaches, marinas, shopping, restaurants, farm markets, safe roads and true natural beauty. A beautiful historic home with acreage, perhaps near a vineyard sounds about right. Buyers will not be speculators but retirees who want a wonderful bang for their buck but also a very high tranquil style of life. Another allure will be new families who are look-

ing to get into their homes and utilize the lovely school systems the North Fork offers and the wonderful outdoor activity. On top of all of that is a wonderful community of people who care about each other and look out for each other. Not to mention safety, town on the North Fork offer a great play space for kids. The allure that Southold had in the 1940s-1950s is still there and is being rediscovered. The historic aspects of Jamestown, Mattituck, Marion, Greenport and Orient have a priceless charm that for years have stood out in tranquility second to none on Long Island. As my one friend put it, “The North Fork is stunning, absolutely stunning. What is so special about it is how quiet it can be there when you want it to be quiet and how lively and wonderful it can be when you want that as well. The vineyards make you feel like you are in California and the beach access and wonderful people remind you that you are on the East End of Long Island.” For years Greenport’s artist community has been the focus of many articles talking about its excitement and growth. A walk up and down the historic streets of Greenport bears out this point. Shops are energized and the mood and climate is upbeat. The North Fork is where prices have not eroded because perhaps those who bought there bought for the long haul and are happy there. In a recent article on Montauk’s lack of substantial fall in medium price, falling less than 10%, way below the national and local level, the quote often heard was, “I like living here (Montauk) I will sell if I get the right price if I don’t I can live here for a long time.” The North Fork seems to have the same sort of loyalty.

Romantic Fashion Tips for Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day The history of romantic fashions began in 1825. Women wore fitted v-pointed bodices, beret sleeves (puffed rounded sleeves that sloped down at the shoulders) and inverted triangle bodices that exposed the chest, throat and shoulder area. Revealing a little skin was quite daring and uncomfortable for some at first, but it soon became part of their everyday dress. Since that time, romantic fashions have transformed into sexy and flirtatious designs. Showing off a little skin today is not considered shocking at all. That is unless you left your bloomers at home, like Brittney Spears. Oops! Not very sexy, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that again? With Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day upon us, many ladies take this opportunity to wear the sexiest dress or blouse for a night out on the town with their romantic partner. Others may prefer a different approach and dress more outwardly conservative, only to reveal a sexy ensemble underneath for unveiling later in the

evening. Shopping around town is the way to go and the East End offers many options. Complements, located in both Bridgehampton and Southampton, is a favorite stop for many. This high-end lingerie boutique offers an array of elegant, sexy undergarments, with designs by La Perla, Hanky Panky and Cosabella (just to name a few.) When choosing the appropriate lingerie, the goal is to look tasteful. However, anything goes on Valentines Day and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one day of the year some may decide to throw caution to the wind. When it comes to achieving that true romantic look, Renaissance in Southampton will not disappoint. This elegant boutique carries something for everyone. From vintage-style jewelry and handbags to timeless dresses, blouses and shawls. If you want to find designs from the past that meet the present, your quest is over.

Another great find is Australian Femininity in Sag Harbor. Boasting beautiful dresses, flirtatious tops and accessories, this treasure chest is filled with an abundance of sparkling selections. And, of course, Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Secret is a reliable source for sexy lingerie and accessories. Why not add a touch of glitter? Lotions and body gels with a hint of sparkle will give that extra something special. There are an abundance of brands that include Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s line of assorted fragrant glittery lotions, as well as a few high-end lines available at Saks Fifth Avenue (Southampton). Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to pamper yourself from head-to-toe. Make an appointment for a pedicure, manicure, facial and waxing. There is nothing sexier than looking polished and radiant. Locally, a few good options include: Kevin Maple Salon (Southampton), Ananas (Southampton), Style Bar Day Spa (Sag Harbor), Naturopathica (East Hampton) and La Carezza (Southampton.) This is an important part of looking sexy and feeling good. Mind, body and spirit are key to looking and feeling confident. Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day is different for everyone, and for those who just want to have fun, go out with a few friends and have a few laughs, remember to look your best. You never know who you might meet ... Questions or thoughts? Email

All the Presidents’ Cars A new U.S. President has just been sworn in, and I hope every American wishes Barack Obama the best of luck. However, one thing that troubles me about the new president and that is that he’s not a car guy like many of us. He even admitted it on network television, when he actually said, “I’m not a car guy,” and added the fact that when he was dating his wifeto-be Michelle, he drove a Toyota Corolla with rusted out floorboards. That’s living proof, because even a neophyte car guy would never even consider driving a Corolla, especially if he were a young, up and coming lawyer working for a prestigious law firm. Everybody knows it’s de rigueur for a hotshot attorney to drive a Porsche or BMW. So which past presidents were car guys? Through the release of historical papers of the United States Freedom of Information Act, as well as my contacts at The New York Times archival department and a few discreet calls to several old friends at the FBI and Secret Service Washington Bureau, I was able to find out the real truth about which of our leaders were into cars. For editorial reasons, I’ve left out Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy. The facts, real or imagined, are shocking. Franklin D. Roosevelt, president from 1933 to1945, was considered by many to be one of our greatest leaders.

Local Art Galleries Celebrate Valentine’s Day

“Letters from Venice” by Anne Drager at Pierre’s By Debbie Tuma A picture says a thousand words, as they say. There are two photography shows, in Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor, that capture the spirit of Valentine’s Day with opening receptions on this special day, February 14, with special pictures. Anne Drager of Montauk has an ongoing exhibit of the romantic color photographs from the most romantic city – Venice – at Pierre’s Restaurant on Main Street, Bridgehampton. This show, called “Letters From Venice,” is the result of Drager’s two-

month stay in Venice, where she went in 2006 to recover from a failed love affair. “I wanted to write to him, but instead I decided to photograph my letters, set amidst the romantic canals and ancient city of Venice,” said Drager, who threw herself into her photography, capturing the statues, masks, roses and couples kissing in the streets. Her exhibit runs through March 4, with the opening reception on February 14, from 3 to 6 p.m. Also on Valentine’s Day, Tulla Booth Gallery, on Main Street, Sag Harbor, will present the opening

Love & Politcs at Tulla Booth reception for its fine art exhibit “Love & Politics,” which runs from February 14 through March 30. It features the romantic and political photographs of three well-known artists: Michael Cardacino, Burt Glinn and Bert Stern. Stern, of Sag Harbor, is known for his famous photo series on Marilyn Monroe. The February 14 reception is scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The public is invited to both shows, to view some romantic artwork and enjoy some treats – all in the tradition of the Hamptons art galleries.

The Sheltered Islander

By Sally Flynn

Love, Sheltered Island Style St. Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day is different on Shelter Island. All over America, women receive traditional gifts of candy and flowers, but on the Island, other things have greater value. Here, if a man calls his sweetheart and says he has crabs, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing. If he calls and says he has mussels, even better; if he calls and says he has crabs and mussels, get ready for a great night. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean take a bubble bath and put on sexy lingerie â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not here. It means boil some water and put the beer on ice â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cause Daddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got the goods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hi Mom. George has mussels and crabs. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pay

you a peck of mussels and two crabs to take the kids tonight.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make it three crabs and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a deal. But why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you let them stay and turn it into a family dinner?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sharing my crabs with my kids, Mom, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deserve it and besides, I want to actually sit down through my whole meal and enjoy it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remember when a private Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day dinner meant flowers, chocolates and sex?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was before kids, Mom. Now a perfect evening to us means an uninterrupted dinner and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Happy Hourâ&#x20AC;? means a nap.â&#x20AC;?

In mainland America, a woman would not give a man his own slip unless heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a transvestite. On the Island, giving your fella a slip is a good thing. He now has a private parking spot for his boat. If he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a boat, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll love getting a slip even more because now he has an excuse to buy a boat, and I know of no better gift for an Island man than an excuse to buy a boat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joe, when are going to fix your roof? You got pots all over the place.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy a roof Craig, gotta buy a boat.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get real. You need a roof more than you need a boat. If you buy a boat with the roof money your wife will kill you!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Craig, she got me a five-year lease for a slip half a mile from this spot.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need a new roof and your wife got you a slip? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful, man. We gotta get you a boat.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big enough for a ketch.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You better never divorce your wife, Joe, if you do, I got dibs next.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you kidding? This is Shelter Island. A woman who lets a man buy a boat instead of a roof could be auctioned for thousands.â&#x20AC;? Of course some Islanders still like to go to the mainland for that special Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dinner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking me off Island for dinner, so I think the relationship is getting serious.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh Loretta, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great! Where are you going?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Does it matter? I told him I wanted to go off Island for a romantic dinner and he said he made reservations AND heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to use one of his own ferry tickets.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoa, that is a definite sign of love. Jerry always conveniently forgets his tickets and we have to use mine. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a trick they all do to save their tickets.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I think this is a significant step for us.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read too much into things, Loretta. Remember when I told Jerry it was our three months anniversary? It reminded him that he needed an oil change. Men just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think like we do. You have to be very specific about what you want or they just do the minimum needed to keep you in the relationship. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the name of the restaurant anyway?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Claudioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Loretta, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Greenport, you can see it from the ferry.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greenport? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll kill him.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, technically, it is off Island. I told you, be specific, especially with the Island boys. Next time tell him you want to have dinner in someplace substantially far away, like maybe, Water Mill.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been farther than Sag Harbor in ages.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just saying, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth a try, Loretta. Tell him thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you want for next Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. That way heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have lead time to get used to the idea.â&#x20AC;?

Romancing in the Hamptons Romantic or Practical Gift? At Gurney’s, Both By Susan Galardi There are so many ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day on the East End – from sharing a romantic dinner at a cozy restaurant to shopping for a special gift at chi chi stores and boutiques. And indeed, at this point in our dour economy, a little extravagance and romance are certainly in order. So, given the current state of affairs, maybe this Valentine’s Day should be more practical, with gifts to significant others (S.O.s) that fulfill needs instead of desires. I had a professor in college who told me he gave his girlfriend a set of tires one Valentine’s Day – a loving

as you both go into your own worlds. I suppose you could chat if you wanted. After, you go right back to your respective dressing rooms. What happens beyond that of course is up to the individuals. And certainly, a relaxing or stimulating massage has the potential to be the prelude to a kiss. You can do many other types of body therapies together as well – scrubs, herbal or seaweed wraps, body polishes, aroma therapies. I’ve done the seaweed wrap. It’s nothing that you would expect – no grainy, salty, smelly seaweed. Rather, an aromatic mineral gel is smeared on the body. I don’t know why, but this therapy put me well into another world.

In addition to these year-round offerings, Gurney’s has Valentine’s specials like their traditional “Renew your Vows” event, on Saturday, February 14 at 5 p.m. Couples overlook the ocean as a VIP Judge officiates. Wedding cake and champagne are served, and each couple gets a certificate commemorating the event as well as a chance to win a weekend for two at Gurney’s. There’s a $10 suggested donation, to benefit local food pantries. The same night, the restaurant is offering a romantic dinner for two, at $140. For dinner reservations or a spot at the “Renew your Vows” event, call 631-668-1737.

gesture on his part since she needed but couldn’t afford them. The gift went over very well – after all, it’s the thought that counts. Fortunately there are gift options that fall between sexy gifts/pricy bling and a set of new radials that are practical, sensual and don’t break the bank. Falling right into that category is massage. There was a classic “Seinfeld” episode about Jerry dating a massage therapist. Although the woman was beautiful, smart and fun, Jerry was more interested in getting himself onto her massage table than getting her into his bed. His thinking was that a really good massage is less work and therefore more enjoyable than sex. That is certainly a highly personal call. But there’s a middle ground. And it’s called couples massage. In addition to many romantic offerings at Valentines’ Day, Gurney’s Inn and Spa has services year round that are targeted to couples. Many spa service at Gurneys – from body therapies to their wide array of massages – are available for two. So what exactly happens at a couples massage? The same thing that happens in an individual massage except there’s another table in the room and your S.O. is on it. Like any massage at Gurneys, experienced therapists man (or woman) the tables. The atmosphere is serene, with soft music and dim lights. You and your partner meet up in the room, the massage therapists ask a few questions about any aches or pains, then it’s take-deep-breaths-and-escape time

Forsaking a Pet, for the Sake of the Family


ized that the behavioral problem was the puppyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not his. In the spirit of the name of this column, I will freely admit that the decision was a mistake. The biting was the big issue. We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t risk our son being hurt by a dog and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever felt completely comfortable leaving them alone. So, after almost three months, we and the puppyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breeder came to the conclusion that it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a good fit, and he agreed to take her back. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been about a week. Our son is handling it surprisingly well. And today, when we started his â&#x20AC;&#x153;VIP board,â&#x20AC;? the only pet photos he wanted to include were of Ruby, not the puppy. Maybe if we worked with a trainer regularly the biting problem would have abated. Maybe if one of us were home full time, giving her more attention and exercise throughout the day, she would have been calmer. Maybe if we had gotten an older dog that was trained and mellow with age, or a puppy that was less aggressive, it would have been a better fit. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. But, just as we told our son after Ruby died, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t replace members of your family. Nor can you duplicate an experience.

being away from him all day. If Hudson ran, the puppy chased, barked and nipped. But most disturbing, her playful nipping quickly escalated to angry biting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially with our son. We adults had more success establishing ourselves as pack leaders. Hudson, at four feet tall, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand a chance. She bit his hand, arm, thigh, and the last straw, his stomach one evening while he danced slowly after dinner. It got to the point where we had to play with them separately, giving us less time with our son. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a puppy, we thought. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll grow out of it. But the biting continued â&#x20AC;&#x201C; anytime Hudson ran, made a sudden move or even played with her one second longer than she liked. Discipline turned into a scream-fest. First at her, then him. Control his behavior and it will be easier to control hers. What that meant was that he had to walk slowly in the house, preferable with his arms crossed in front of him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; those little dangling hands and wiggling fingers were bait. When he sat at the table, his sock-covered feet became chew toys for her. He crossed his legs when he ate. Hudsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s joy of putting on music and dancing came to an end, unless the pup was upstairs in her crate. We realPhoto by Susan Galardi

A boy and his dog. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an iconic, evocative image. Make that dog a soft-faced golden retriever with its ever-present smile, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right out Norman Rockwell if not Hallmark. So when our son was four years old and our 10year old Golden Retriever, Ruby, passed away, it shattered that American dream. In December, I wrote about the loss and how to help a child through the grieving process that follows the death of a pet. Like many parents, we decided to wait rather than get a quick replacement. And wait we did, more than a year. Finally, in October, we went to a breeder and picked out a sixweek-old blonde fuzz ball from a litter of Goldens. We brought her home at eight weeks, ready to recreate the boy and his dog scenario, this time from puppy hood. But bringing an energetic, untrained puppy into a family accustomed to a mature, mellow dog didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn out as we had planned. Our son was born into a family of two adults and a five-year-old dog who was the epitome of unconditional love and patience. She allowed us to give Hudson the attention he needed, and become his protector and constant companion. But now, an infant puppy burst into an established family dynamic of two adults and a five-year old boy, demanding more attention than a baby. It was rough going at first. Hudson wanted to play with the puppy as he had with Ruby. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have none of it. This girl nipped and squiggled away.

Little Dogs, Big Issues: Dealing with Behavior Issues

Photo by Jenna Robbins

When people think of “little,” especially as it pertains to dogs, they think of cute, baby, sweet, innocent and less work. Not so! Little dogs can have big issues so it’s time to undo the fallacy that “little dogs are easier.” First, the Pros: 1.You can scoop them up and carry them anywhere. 2. Their “output” is smaller. 3. They can use wee-wee pads. 4. They eat less. 5. They’re less destructive. 6. They’re easier to walk. Now, the Cons: 1. They need more care nutritionally – especially as puppies. 2. They are more susceptible to illness and complications like hypoglycemia and dehydration. 3. They tend to bark more than large breeds. 4. They don’t like to go out in rain nor bad weather, nor do they like to walk on wet grass. 5. They are easily injured. 6. The smaller the dog the more difficult to train! Now you’re thinking, why did she say that? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE little dogs and have my own. But as a trainer, I get more calls from people with

small breeds than large ones. I actually get calls about Toy Poodles, Chihuahuas, Yorkies and other teeny beasts that rule the roost to the extent that their human families fear their snapping, biting and terrorizing of other members of the household. When I visit such a home, the owners may actually have the dog locked in a kennel because they’re afraid it will bite me! This is not a joke, and getting bitten is certainly not funny. So if you have a situation like that, here’s some advice. Because of all the adjectives I mentioned, like cute and baby, people tend to carry little dogs around and pick them up when they’re doing something wrong or annoying instead of trying to correct or teach them. You know the expression, “You can’t be a little bit pregnant”? It means you either are or you aren’t. When it comes to a dog’s behavior for a dog, it’s the same: he either can or he can’t. If he does something wrong and is picked up, you just validated for him that he CAN continue that behavior. By holding him, you gave him affection for eating your Jimmy Choo shoes. You told him that barking and biting your leg was the way for him to get attention. So he will, without a doubt, keep doing it. The next thing to remember is, the higher the dog’s head, the more he is in control. So 90% of the time when I go to a house

with a small dog that is terrorizing everyone, his first instinct is to jump up on the highest part of a couch or chair so that he is now bigger than life. As soon as you get him off the couch, his attitude will change. If you’re down on the floor with him in a puppy play position, he will take charge. So what do you do? First, put a leash on him inside the house and keep him on the ground. Use a strong voice if he does something wrong, and tell him “NO.” As soon as he stops, tell him “Good boy” and pet him. He’ll get the idea. Little dogs also tend to get less exercise. Get out there and take that little guy for a walk, play ball with him, and stop letting him make his own decisions. He’s a teenager testing his limits. Well it’s time to take away the car keys! It’s a hard concept for most people to understand but dogs prefer structure and having a “place” in the family unit. Dogs are very smart and, big or little, they will do what ever they can get away with doing … just like us. Questions? Thoughts? E-mail

Art Commentary

Robert Cray Onstage

American blues guitarist, singer and songwriter, Robert Cray, whose work often blurs the lines of pop, rock and blues, will be heading to the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on February 28. Cray, who’s working on a new album, moved around a lot when he was growing up because his father was in the Army. But he committed to playing guitar when he was 12. Cray spent much of his high school years in Tacoma, Wash., where he “caught the blues bug,” after Albert Collins performed at his high school’s graduation party. He moved down to Eugene, Oregon, where he started The Robert Cray Band and released his first album, Who’s Been Talkin’, in 1978. Since then, he’s won five Grammy awards and been nominated for 11 more. Originally, though, he made a name for himself in the UK, where, Cray said, “they love

by Marion Wolberg Weiss

American music – rock and roll, blues, country – pretty much everything in the pop genre belongs to the United States and they pay close attention to it and get into it in a real fine detail. They’re fanatical about records and whatnot… It happened for us over there before we had any success over here. We first had two to three records hit the top of the charts over in England.” Now, Cray and his band are busy working on their first studio album since 2005, and their first record since the double live album, Live from Across the Pond, recorded at Albert Hall, that they released a couple of years ago. Fans coming to the WHBPAC show can expect a good mix of old and new material, he says. Cray will perform at the WHBPAC on February 28 at 8 p.m. For more information, go to or

Richard Mayhew at Stony Brook Southampton

“Love Bush” The current exhibit by Richard Mayhew is perfectly described with the title, “Transcendental Landscapes,” a title carrying complicated connotations. When all is said and done the viewer feels transcended. That’s quite a feat, but what’s also fascinating is the application of such a transcendental experience to the arts in general. While we are overwhelmed by the artist’s glorious color and dream-like compositions, we realize that Mayhew’s evocation of sensual imagery is the key to his transcendentalism. How this works is part of Mayhew’s extraordinary talent and curator Marc Fasanella’s sensitivity. At first glance, we “see” landscape elements (i.e., trees) as figure and ground, as bending toward each other (literally) to suggest a natural “oneness” of all things. In simple terms, there is a “blending” of images in all directions: toward the sky and beyond the picture plane. Again, reinforcement that everything is part of everything else. Then we begin to experience separate sensual aspects that go beyond this idea of “oneness.” There’s the peaceful sound in “Summer Serenade,” the lively vibes in “Rhapsody,” and conversely, the explosive noise in “Transfiguration,” as if the trees will blast off at any minute. “Love Bush” is another example of an image that is emotive and “loud.” With the more serene images, we can even smell the bushes in “Spring #2” and “Spring Overture.” And then there’s the sensation of texture in “Santa Fe Trail,” where the smooth and the rough come together. “Indigenous Spring” conjures up the same textural experience, suggesting the silky grass and coarse rocks. And yes, there’s even the sense of taste. Consider the candy cotton pinks of “Summer Serenade” and “Love Bush” (which looks like cotton candy with its fluffy shape). Mayhew’s exquisite use of purples in “Rhapsody” and “Vista” recalls a luscious plum. Such sensual experiences surely propel us into outer space, and if that isn’t transcendence, we don’t know what is. Richard Mayhew’s “Transcendental Landscapes” will be on view at the Avram Gallery at Stony Brook Southampton until March 21. Call 631-632-5105 for hours.

Jazz on the Vine and Events All Around By David Lion Rattiner So it’s the middle of winter and you ask yourself, what is there to do? I know you may think that it’s quiet everywhere, but it isn’t. I know you think that it’s all slow and boring, but it’s quite the opposite. In fact, it’s party time. From February 14 through March 22, the Long Island Winterfest will rock your socks off with six weekends filled with more than 60 jazz concerts and, of course, fantastic local wine. Appropriately, the Long Island Winterfest is calling this event “Jazz On The Vine.” Everybody loves live jazz, and at nearly every winery in the area, including Bedell Cellars on the North Fork and Duck Walk on the South Fork, a jazz concert is scheduled. By the way, the cost of the tickets to go to these concerts? Free! Who doesn’t love that word? Visiting can give you all the information that you need about these exciting six weeks on the East End. Jazz, paired with our areas award winning wines, is certainly something to get excited about, but also, the Long Island Winterfest is offering cultural attractions and programs, hotel and B&B getaway packages, restaurant specials and limousine tour offers. This offers visitors an excellent opportunity to plan an incredible weekend. Gurney’s Inn in Montauk is offering a Girlfriends Spa Package (631668-2345) that includes ocean view rooms, breakfast, dinner, spa treatments and gifts at remarkable dis-

counts. Check out the getaway package Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor for Saturday nights between February 14 and March 22. For just $135 a couple can enjoy two tickets to Bay Street Theatre for a night of piano bar/cabaret and a room at the lovely Sag Harbor Inn (call 631-725-0818). These are just two of the dozens of incredible deals happening during these six weekends. While touring Winterfest web site, it’s impossible to not get excited about “Jazz On The Vine” and to use the incredible deals offered as an opportunity to organize a Valentine’s Day your special someone will not forget. On the North Fork, at the lovely Acorn Hollow Bed and Breakfast in Southold, enjoy a two-night stay in a room with a whirlpool tub and fireplace, lunch for two at the Greenport Tea Company, dinner for two at your choice of top North Fork restaurants and a full guid-

ed tour of four North Fork wineries, with transportation included, for just $439 a person (631-765-1234). Now there’s a Valentine’s Day worth remembering. Restaurants are involved, too. At The Southampton Inn/OSO (631-283-6500) on February 28 at 8 p.m., the fantastic band JTrio is scheduled to perform, and at the Patio Restaurant in Westhampton (631288-0100), enjoy a $30 prixe fixe until 6:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and all night long during the week. During the whole six weeks, the Southampton Publick House (631-283-2800) is offering 15 percent off lunch or dinner with a print out of the offer. It’s an excellent time to be in the Hamptons, thanks to the Long Island Winterfest, and nearly every local business from the North Fork to the South Fork is doing its part and getting involved to entertain the public during the “slow” season. You’ve got to tip your hat to the Long Island Wine Council, the East End Arts Council, Suffolk County Department of Economic Development and Workforce Housing, the Long Island Convention and Visitors Bureau, American Express and WLIU for their joint efforts in putting this wonderful event together. It’s one impressive feat and will make the winter cold much friendlier. This is one of the best seasons to be in the Hamptons. Check out for all of the amazing deals and offers. You won’t regret it.

Review: The History Boys

Scenes from the Southampton Cultural Center’s production of The History Boys, which runs through February 15.

By Jenny O’Sullivan The History Boys will get you thinking. Presented at the Southampton Cultural Center, Alan Bennett’s drama, which won the 2006 Tony Award for best play, explores the relationship between teacher and student and the sacrifices people make to stay true to themselves. The play also shows how “studying for the test” can hinder the educational experience. The setting is a British grammar school in the 1980s that’s filled with very bright and promising young men. This prompts the headmaster to bring Irwin, a young teacher, to the school to ensure that the boys will be accepted into either Oxford or Cambridge. The headmaster’s goal is to do what it takes to make the school look good, rather than what will be best for the students. The boys’ general studies teacher, Hector, is the opposite: He cares more about learning, the appreciation of art and life experiences. Throughout the play, there’s much tension among the teachers, among cer-

tain students, and between teacher and student, as the drama examines the politics of corrupt education systems and the dire consequences that may result. A complex play requires a certain level of talent on the part of the actors. This cast at the Cultural Center was both talented and believable. The ensemble succeeded – from their British accents to their classroom banter. The performance of Mark Anderson as Irwin was a standout. The audience could feel his conflict between his heart’s desire and social expectations. Stephen D’Amico as Polsner effectively communicated the character’s inner angst. D’Amico also had a vocal solo that was lovely. Another well-rounded talent was Jacob Boergesson, in the role of Scripps, whose acting and piano abilities were impressive. The object of much affection was Dakin, played by Christopher D’Amico. Dakin oozed of young confidence and intelligence, which caught the eye of classmates and teachers.

The simple set includes a blackboard that doubles as a window and as a screen for video clips. Set changes were clever and meticulously executed – always appreciated by the audience. Just enough was accomplished to get the point across. This show would be of great interest to anyone who has the desire to know what teachers probably have to deal with at some point in their careers. Teachers seeing the play could be reminded how fragile their students are, and how important the teacher/student dynamic is to maximizing education. Directed by Michael Disher, the show’s final performance is February 15, so there are only three shows of The History Boys left. Performances on Friday at Saturday are at 8 p.m. and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. General admission tickets are $20 and student tickets, for those under 21 with ID, are $10. Group rates are available. For more information or to reserve tickets, call 631-287-4377.

Chocolate Desserts: Sweets for the Sweet Valentine’s Day, a holiday eternally synonymous with a day of love and romance, falls on a Saturday this year. For centuries, Valentine’s Day has continued to grow in tradition, creating a compelling connection between food and love. For me, it’s the perfect excuse to indulge in chocolate desserts. Not that anyone needs an excuse to enjoy chocolate in any form. To celebrate the special occasion, a fine dinner in sumptuous surroundings would be lovely. Restaurants are where we look for a special evening out. Yet, the idea of a chocolate tasting party is suddenly very appealing. Why not do both - an early dinner out and then home to share chocolate desserts – your place or mine? According to food scientist authority, Harold McGee, (On Food and Cooking, Scribner, revised 2004,) “Chocolate contains phenylethylamine, a naturally occurring body chemical that has amphetamine-like effects. In fact, there is good experimental evidence that chocolate does not contain any druglike substances capable of inducing true addiction. It appears to be the sensory experience of eating chocolate, no more and no less, that is powerfully appealing.” In its myriad forms, chocolate is an endless temptation and simply a culinary source of pleasure. TORTA DI MANDORLE DI CAPRI This Italian inspired cake is incredibly light, rich and moist. It contains no starch or leavening. The eggs give it its structure and you will be amazed at how simple it is to prepare. Serves 10-12 1/2 pound whole almonds, blanched 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped coarsely 2 tablespoons dark rum 1 teaspoon vanilla 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter 1/2 cup sugar 4 eggs, separated 1 extra egg white 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar 1 1/2 tablespoons powdered sugar for decoration Whipped cream for serving, optional

Cake is done when it pulls away from sides of pan or a cake tester inserted into center comes out clean.

oughly incorporated. Add vanilla and stir to mix.

5. Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool for at least 10 minutes in the pan. Loosen sides of cake by drawing a kitchen knife between the cake and the sides of pan. Remove the sides of springform and cool completely on a wire rack. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with whipped cream, if desired. Can be made up to two days ahead. RASPBERRY CHOCOLATE BROWNIES Here’s a recipe that needn’t pack a days worth of calories into a single portion – just enough to satisfy that chocolate craving. Yield: Approximately two dozen brownies when cut into 1 1/2” x 1” bars 1/4 cup canola oil 1 cup sugar 4 egg whites 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2/3 cup unsweetened, good quality, Dutch cocoa 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 1/3 cup raspberry preserves 2 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts

3. Oil an 8” or 9” square baking pan and pour in the batter. Bake for 25 minutes or until a cake tester or wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack. Turn out onto a cutting board and cool completely. Spread top with raspberry preserves and sprinkle with walnuts. Cut into bars and transfer to a covered cake stand. For optimum flavor, prepare the day before serving. TARTINE AU CACAO Chocolate cravings couldn’t get simpler than this! Serves 2 2 ounces créme fraiche 2 thick slices of country bread or sourdough 2 tablespoons cocoa powder 1. Spread a thick layer of créme fraiche on each slice of bread and dust equally with cocoa powder. 2. Serve with homemade hot chocolate. Adapted from Mireille Guiliano’s French Woman Don’t Get Fat, Knopf.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 1. Put the oil and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30-40 seconds. Add egg whites and beat to incorporate into the mixture. 2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa. Add to the sugar mixture, beating well until thor-

Butter an 8-inch springform pan then dust with bread or cookie crumbs. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 1. Blanch almonds in a saucepan of boiling water for one minute. Drain, slip off skins and dry nuts. Transfer to bowl of food processor fitted with knife blade and process until finely ground, (dry, and not pasty). Transfer nuts to a large bowl. Place chocolate in processor and process until fine. Add chocolate to almonds in the bowl and stir to mix. Add rum and vanilla and stir to incorporate thoroughly. 2. In a bowl or the bowl of the electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until creamy and smooth. Add egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition. When all the yolks have been added, remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in the almond mixture until thoroughly incorporated. 3. In a clean bowl, beat egg whites at a slow speed in the electric mixer or electric hand beaters until just foamy, add cream of tartar and continue to beat at medium-high speed until whites form stiff, but not dry, peaks. 4. With a large rubber spatula, stir one-fourth of the egg whites into the cake batter, and then carefully fold in the remaining whites. Transfer batter to prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes to one hour.

DAN'S PAPERS, February 13, 2009 Page 47

Letters THE PARTY’S OVER Dear Dan, To the gluttonous CEOs of America’s failed megacorporations: The party’s over. Cork up the Chivas Regal and drink some Kool-Aid. Put your polo ponies out to pasture. Sell your yachts to the United Arab Emirates. Downsize your corporate jet fleet. Plow under your private golf courses and plant a Victory Garden. Avarice and conspicuous consumption are no longer in vogue. Paul G. Jaehnert Vadnais Hts., MN Via e-mail I’ll drink to that. – D.R. ANOTHER POV Dear Dan, We understand that leftist ideologues do not allow logic, rationality or facts to alter their beliefs. So your response to Stuart Gillman’s e-mail (January 16), “Before you get here, you’re an illegal,” was not surprising, just pathetic. Ken Niehaus Via e-mail TROUBLE IN PARADISE Dear Dan, I am writing to you after years of trying to get the attention of the person responsible for road hazards in Sagaponack. The buck is simply passed from one person to the other with no one willing to take a look and make a decision one way or the other. A guardrail was built on both sides of Hedges Lane at Old Barn Lane (West of Town Line) to keep vehicles out of a small culvert. The guardrails are a greater danger than the problem they are intended to fix. A vehicle – anything smaller than an eighteen-wheeler – hitting it head-on would be impaled by the cross-member (similar construction existed on the Parkways – Northern and Southern State – many years ago). Please drive by at your convenience and see for yourself whether or not you agree.

e-mail Dan at

I called the Town about it years ago and they did nothing. – D.R. GIVING THANKS Dear Dan, On behalf of the staff and clients of The Retreat, I would like to thank you for your generosity and support this holiday season. The holidays can be a particularly difficult time of year for our clients and their children. Every donation that is received on their behalf, both big and small, is greatly appreciated. We wish you and your family a joyful, healthy and peaceful new year. Michele Halusic The Retreat East Hampton I played Santa Claus there this year. – D.R. WHO WON AT MADOFF? Dear Dan, Your “take” on Madoff ’s $50 billion was very well thought out. In using your term of “follow the money,” you did leave out the big winner – namely the IRS. Take, for example, Carl Shapiro, who reportedly lost $400 million. His yearly profit on that sum, based on Madoff ’s typical returns, would have been approximately $45-$50 million in highly taxable short-term gains. I’m sure, like most of Madoff ’s victims, he took some or all of his tax needs to cover Madoff profits out of his Maddoff account. It would seem like the IRS made billions and was, as stated above, by far the big winner. In all fairness, taxes paid to the government on non-existent gains should be refunded as promptly as possible since many of the victims find themselves in extremely difficult circumstances. Donald Maharam Hauppauge, NY Absolutely. – D.R.

Joe Rubio Via e-mail

DON’T DRINK THE WATER Dear Editor, I think your readers that have to drink Suffolk County Water Authority tap-water should be advised that the Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) for radioactive compounds is ZERO, yet [the published] tables indicate the SCWA blends radioactive water to meet EPA’s flawed Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) - even for radioactive compounds. Since SCWA water mains began interconnecting dozens of wells in some areas after 2001, many became radioactive too. After smoking, Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer and the tables show there’s lots of Radon in public wells serving Bridgehampton, Westhampton, Sag Harbor and other LI towns. Before 2001, we had one well in Patchogue (Waterworks); thereafter 37 – so we switched to purified water. (LOEW'S sells the PRIMO brand in 5 gal jugs.) In stories extolling the SCWA's “pristine” water, Newsday, NY Times and Town officials appear to consider radioactive water to be “pristine” simply because God created Uranium, Radon, Strontium, and other radioactive ...ium’s. They also advertise free, re-usable plastic bottles developed by the SCWA to save our landfills by filling them with tap water; neglecting to mention the SCWA’s radioactive wells. Of course, those lucky enough to be on private non-radioactive wells only have to worry about drinking toxic leachate blends from landfills that were supposed to be closed in 1990 to protect our ground water. Since most of Long Island’s western most farms are gone, radioactive irrigation wells are no longer a big problem for wildlife. Dr. Carmine F. Vasile Patchogue, NY To see the published tables, go to and the same prefix with /WD-02.html; /WD-04.html; /WD-05.html /WD-06.html & /WD-07.html. – S.G.

Police Blotter Speedy A man from Florida was caught driving 49 miles per hour in a 20 miles per hour zone in East Hampton. After police pulled the man over and looked into the matter, they learned that his license to drive had been suspended. I’m not going to tell you why. Chef And A Cow In Southampton, a chef and a cow were spotted dancing outside of a restaurant. Well, it was really just a few folks dressed up in a giant chef and cow costume who were having a hoot of a time outside in the cold. No arrests were made. The cow and the chef are living happily ever after. Thief A man who resides in East Hampton part of the year reported to police that his house had been broken into while he was away and had been ransacked of nearly every valuable item, including an expensive flat screen television and, quite myste-

riously, a breadbox.

evidently has only half a brain in his head.

No Escape There was simply no escape for a man in Sag Harbor who was bombarded with snowballs thrown by who witnesses believe to be local youths. The man, who was driving his car at the time, was walloped with what was counted to be five incoming snowballs. His car did not receive any damage from the incident and the man was not injured. He did need a few minutes to cool off his temper, however. Luckily, it was pretty cold outside that day.

Sexual Assault Well, things are really not looking so good for the former East Hampton basketball star Michael Russell, who ended up in the slammer for two burglaries that occurred in East Hampton. The former star is now facing felony sexual assault charges in New Hampshire and could end up with a 30-year prison sentence.

Not So Pretty It wasn’t a pretty day in Hampton Bays when a woman was charged with assault against a man who was her former boyfriend. The incident occurred after the woman asked how she looked in a specific piece of clothing, to which the man responded, “You look kind of hefty in that.” Needless to say, it was lights out for the man, who

Guess He Was Hungry A driver crashed right smack into a general store in Sag Harbor, completely destroying the entire front of the store and nearly injuring a woman inside. The driver of the car was allegedly drunk at the scene of the incident and was taken to the hospital. Reports indicate that he was not seriously injured, nor was anybody else, thankfully. The storeowner, however, was one really, really, really, really angry dude that day. - David Lion Rattiner

DAN'S PAPERS, February 13, 2009 Page 71

An executive in Europe is looking for a house in Southampton. Yours is perfect. Too bad heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never see it. Residential real estate has gone global. Executive transfers to our area are as likely to come from Bonn as they are from Boston, or from Milan as they are from Minneapolis. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fact. But if your real estate agent is only multi-listing in the US, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re missing more than half your market. Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make much sense, does it.

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Engles & VĂślkers - Southampton. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re part of a worldwide organization with property shops in 25 countries and on four continents. When you list your home with us youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be reaching not only buyers across the country, but across the world as well. Even more to the point, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll

EH UHDFKLQJ WKRURXJKO\ TXDOLĂ&#x20AC;HG DQG YHWWHG EX\HUV DV RSSRVHG to â&#x20AC;&#x153;lookersâ&#x20AC;?. This makes sense.

Homes of distinction. At Engel & VĂślkers, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only type we handle. Homes with character, great locations, and all the amenities buyers are sure to notice. So whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re selling your home, looking for a new one, or both weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the people to contact.

Call us. :H JXDUDQWHH \RX¡OO Ă&#x20AC;QG RXU VWDII SOHDVDQW NQRZOHGJHDEOH DQG totally committed to your vision. Because in reality itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very simple -- itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we do.

DAN'S PAPERS, February 13, 2009 Page 76


My new kitchen adds more flavor to life. My kitchen is the heart of my family’s life. So I wanted my new kitchen to capture that warmth. When I saw the full-size showroom displays at Perimeters – and the magnificent craftsmanship and deep, rich finish of Tedd Wood Fine Cabinetry – I was not only inspired, I was moved. My contractor and I teamed up with a Perimeters design consultant, and together we created a “live-in” kitchen that today exceeds my highest expectations. And we did so, literally, from scratch. Down to the finest detail. Food, friends and family – it all comes together in my wonderful new kitchen from Perimeters.

Limited Time Offer!
