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

Ironclad Guarantee. If we don’t meet all of our promises and guarantees, which we will share with you in writing, and if you’re not 100% satisfied with every aspect of your SameDay Heating & Air experience we’ll return ALL of your money! No Questions Asked. You Can’t Lose! This is our exclusive one year test-drive satisfaction money-back guarantee. How Can You Get This Offer? Call Now! Call Tina at 631-727-2760 today, and she will set up a visit with one of our Comfort Advisors to come by and perform a No Cost No Obligation Comfort Survey and Energy Analysis to evaluate your existing system, home comfort needs, and prove to you how much in energy dollars you can save by replacing your old inefficient system now. He will show you which system he recommends for your home and explain why that system is best for you. This is a free on-site evaluation and you are under no obligation to buy anything – EVER!

Offer Absolutely, Positively Ends March 15th. Our business always picks back up again in early April with spring turning people’s thoughts to air conditioning and the summer heat waves and the manufacturer specially discounted prices will go away. So, we will stop all special sales on our March 15th cut-off date or after we sell the 47 systems, whichever comes first, no exceptions. This will allow us time to properly install all new systems before the weather breaks and we get busy again. The only reason we are making this offer is to keep our team of technicians busy during one of the slowest times of the year. Our loss can be your gain if you act now and call Tina at 631-727-2760 and have one or our Comfort Advisors give you your special price and extra equipment at tremendous savings. Thank you for reading about our program and in advance for your consideration, I hope you “profit” greatly as a result.

Obama’s Secret Battling for Votes in Texas from a Southampton Oceanfront Mansion By Dan Rattiner By the time you read this, the Tuesday primaries in Texas and Ohio will have come and gone and the result will be that either Barack Obama is sailing toward the Democratic nomination, or his battle with Hillary Clinton is soldiering on. This is written late Thursday evening, however, four days before the outcome is known, and I have just been in the middle of a wild and enthusiastic meeting of Obama supporters, who have spent the last four hours at a friend’s Southampton home, eating pizza, drinking Coke and making phone calls here in the Hamptons to random people in Texas and Ohio to get out the vote. I try to stay fairly neutral in these pages when it comes to politics. And I’m not apologizing for being in the middle of a den of Obama people, but my being here did come about by chance. My friend has a very large house on the ocean. We’ve been sitting around in the library. In another part of the house, this crowd of people,

mostly young people, has been in a dining room and a living room down the hall occasionally whooping and hollering in accompaniment to what they were doing. “What the heck is going on down there?” I asked my friend. “Let me show you,” my friend responded. We wandered down the hall to find about a dozen of them, sitting at the dining room and kitchen tables all in rows looking down at their

which consisted of a button that read MAKE PHONE CALLS. When you clicked that, you got to another page that said BEGIN HERE. A caller stood behind me and guided me through the process. There was a map of America, with all the states in gray but four states, which were at issue on Tuesday — Vermont, Rhode Island, Ohio and Texas — were in dark blue. I clicked Ohio. And after a few seconds, in a box, appeared the name HAROLD and a nine-digit phone number. “What just happened?” I asked. “The site is hooked up to the national database of every registered voter in the country,” my guide said. “You have just been given a voter to call in Ohio.” I sat there and stared at it. Directly below was a written script. It read, “Hello, is _______ there? My name is ______ and I’m calling you on behalf of Barack Obama who as you know, is running for President in the Democratic primary on Tuesday. We think that Barack Obama is the best candidate to bring much needed change to our country. Do you expect you might be voting for him?” Suddenly, what was on my screen disappeared. I turned. “What just happened?” “Let me see. Here it is. The system has shut

You would have thought Barack Obama was a rock star and these were members of his fan club.

They sat me down at a laptop, which was open to a website called On the top was a picture of him, smiling in front of an American flag.

A Southampton home looks to set a new record for price per acre in the Hamptons. The Oceanfront Gin Lane estate, once the home of Oscar-wining Chicago producer Marty Richards and his late wife, Johnson & Johnson heiress Mary Lea Johnson, stands on six acres with a 13,200-square-foot main residence, a seaside pool, tennis court and gardens. Though it’s probably worth every penny at $65 million, or $10.8 million per acre, that would be a record-breaking lot of pennies, shelled out by an unnamed European businessman. * * * By now, everyone’s seen Long Island native Lindsay Lohan’s blunt, nude Marilyn Monroe-inspired New York Magazine photographs taken by Sag Harbor’s Bert Stern.

BREAKING NEWS LIPA Meeting Vote By Debbie Tuma Last week, LIPA trustees voted unanimously to proceed with their plan to put in a nine-mile transmission line route including four miles of large aboveground poles, at a meeting held at their headquarters in Uniondale. This above ground stretch goes from David White’s Lane through Lower Seven Ponds Road, Head of Pond Road and ends at Scuttlehole Road. The vote was on LIPA’s final environmental impact statement on the transmission power line route from Southampton to Bridgehampton. The LIPA Trustees voted to accept this proposed route, and scheduled to start construction by the end of March, with bids going out immediately. But LIPA President Kevin Law gave his personal commitment to also bid out a 100% underground system. The vote followed a public hearing, which was held for about 120 East End residents who attended. They traveled on two Hampton (continued on page 24)

down the calling to Ohio. It’s after 9 p.m. You can’t call anybody after 9 p.m.” “That’s good,” I said. There was a message on the screen now that explained that. “Just hit the back arrow,” my guide said. “Back up. We’ll try Texas. It’s not yet 9 p.m. in Texas.” The script for Texas was slightly different, modeled after the fact that you can vote before Tuesday in that state if you want to. I had DWAYNE on my screen. Below the script were a series of six boxes. They ranged from DEFINITELY VOTING FOR OBAMA to VOTING FOR ANOTHER PARTY CANDIDATE.

“After Dwayne says what he has to say,” my guide told me, “you click on one of these boxes. Then you get a new script to read. And based on his answers, you click more boxes. It’s easy.” “How do we know somebody has not already called this person?” “The responses recorded are sent back into the database. Those that are done don’t get put up to be called again.” There were other things on the screen. In another box were the names of the top ten callers, with the number of calls they had completed in descending order next to their names. There was another box that had a collection of non-responses you could click. NO ANSWER/NOT IN. NOT PARTICIPATING.

And so forth and so on. There was another place where you could click to confine your calls to just men or just women or all. “This is amazing,” I said. “Want to try one?” “I guess it couldn’t hurt.” My first call, to Dwayne, was a disaster. The main thing was that we weren’t back on the page where the first script was. We were on the second script. “Hello?” “Uh, is this Dwayne?” “Yeah.” He had a strong Texas twang. “Uh, I’m a caller for a campaign for Barack Obama. We’re doing a survey. Are you voting for Barack Obama there in Texas?” “That’s my business,” Dwayne said. “Okay.” We hung up. I turned to my guide. “Where’s the script? Where’s the script?” I shouted. “Try another,” she said, bringing me back to the script. “I want to just talk to a woman,” I said. “Okay.” The next person, Sheila, defaulted to an answering machine. I told the guide. “Click NO ANSWER/NOT HOME.” The next four I called also defaulted to answering machines. “It’s not working,” I said. “Most of them are not answering at this time because it’s the dinner hour.” “Does Hillary have something like this?” “I think so. They all do.” On the next call, I hit the jackpot. I got Lottie. Or actually, it wasn’t Lottie, but her sister. I glanced at my guide, decided this was too complicated, and just pressed on. “Hi. Listen, my name is Dan and I’m calling you on behalf of Barack Obama who is running for President in the Democratic Primary in Texas this Tuesday. Are you voting for…” “I already DID vote for him. He was HERE!” “He WAS?” “Yes. I just came back from Town Hall. He was here and he spoke. This was just an hour ago. He’s wonderful. The place was packed. Right after I went out and voted for him.” “So you’re a DEFINITE?” “Oh yes.” “Well, we’re here in New York.” “You’re all the way in New York? I’m in Belmont.” “Where’s that?” “Southern Texas. Thirty miles south of Houston.” I looked at my guide and she asked me to give her the phone, which I did. Inside of a minute, the two of them were bonding over the phone about Barack Obama. Would she volunteer to help him? She would? What could she do? My guide asked if she could put her on speakerphone so everybody in the dining room could hear, and she said sure. Pretty soon they were talking about getting more people to go out and vote for Obama, or make phone calls for him or put meetings together for him. The energy in this dining room, and indeed, in whatever room Lottie in (continued on page 31)

Grumman’s Revenge A Snub 20 Years Ago in Riverhead Bites Back at Boeing in Seattle By Dan Rattiner When the Japanese sent their planes over Pearl Harbor, the Americans, besides being surprised, made a startling discovery. They didn’t possess any aircraft capable of dealing with the Japanese Zero, and all of the planes that came over Pearl Harbor were Japanese Zeros. The Zeros were faster, nimbler, better armed, able to climb higher and dive more steeply. The few American pilots, climbing into aircraft that had not been blasted to smithereens on the ground, went down a runway and up into the air to fight the Zeros hand to hand and were lucky to get back alive. You can’t fight a Zero with slow biplanes named Buffalo Brewsters.

These were dark days for the American military. But the word got out. In the assault on Pearl Harbor, the Japanese had lost a few of their Zeros. And so the Americans had pieces of them in enough quantity to be able to determine why they were so good. Specifications for the Zeros were quickly sent out to anyone making airplanes who wanted to see them. There needed to be an answer. And there was. A man named Leroy Grumman, who was building airplanes in a garage in Baldwin, Long Island, built and flew something he thought could beat a Zero. The military in New York City watched it fly and were very

impressed. An assembly line was quickly built in a warehouse near Baldwin, and Leroy now oversaw the production of what he called the Grumman F4F Wildcat. It was heavier, stronger and more armored than the Zero. It was faster. It had more weapons. And even if it was not as nimble as the Zero, there was a strategy that, if used, could give it the advantage. Fly it high. Then dive down through the Zeros and pick them off in a surprise attack. As the war progressed, the Wildcat and its successor, the F6F Hellcat, which was all of the above AND as nimble as the Zero, slowly took down the entire arsenal of Zeros that the (continued on the next page)

UPSCALE BILLBOARD ADS AVAILABLE AT EH AIRPORT By David Lion Rattiner In high season, East Hampton Airport has to be one of the most active small, local airports in the country. It is for this very reason that, every summer, residents within the noise radius of airplane and helicopter engines begin to complain. They bought a house in East Hampton for some peace and quiet, but because of the airport (which they may well have used to get here), they hear the buzz of helicopters every ten minutes instead. Valid arguments are made on both sides of the issue. In support of the airport, helicopters and private planes bring in the largest sup-

porters of our economy. And for those who want quiet, it’s probably best not to buy a house near an airport. But this endless drama has kept the East Hampton Airport in the public eye and on the desks of public officials who have been doing everything they can to remedy the problem. Very quietly, however, amid the controversy, an extremely interesting situation has arisen at the airport that has gone largely unnoticed by the general public. The airport managers are about to launch a new form of advertising this year in hopes of capturing the well-heeled audience as they fly

in. Luxury Media Partners and the East Hampton Town Board have figured out a way to get close to $1 million by setting up an advertising campaign within the airport itself. Of course, this is not the first time an airport has used advertising to generate revenue. Countless light box ads can be found at JFK promoting everything from vacation destinations to perfume. But at small airports, this practice isn’t very common, and that’s what makes this proposal so interesting. Five L.E.D. light boxes (six feet and ten feet tall), a 15-foot wide interior wall banner and (continued on page 32)

Japanese possessed. At the end of the war, with only a few Zeros left, the Japanese ordered that pilots pledge themselves to the Emperor and fly them on suicide missions into the sides of the American battle cruisers if they could. Some succeeded. Most failed, shot down by buzzing Hellcats, which came from nearby aircraft carriers to circle around over the warships to protect them. Needless to say, Leroy Grumman became an American hero, a man to whom the entire nation was indebted. After the war, the Navy contracted Grumman to build the next generation of fighter planes for their aircraft carriers, and after that, the next. The very best scientists and engineers came to work at Grumman, first at Bethpage and later here on eastern Long Island in Calverton, where Grumman built a military airport in the middle of the Pine Barrens.


For two entire generations, from the 1950s to the 1990s, Grumman designed and then built and tested — you’d often see them streaking overhead — the most sophisticated aircraft on the planet. And even beyond the planet. The F14 Tomcat, immortalized in Tom Cruise’s movie Top Gun, was far and away the best fighter plane in the world from 1975 to 1995. The E-2 Hawkeye, with its surveillance dish mounted on top, was the most sophisticated spy plane in the world. And the Moon Rover, built for the Astronauts, was the first and only manned vehicle ever built for use beyond our planet. All were built in Calverton. But times change. And by the early 1980s, the relationship between Grumman and the Navy was considered by most Americans as just too cozy for comfort. Why weren’t there serious competitions for the next new Navy aircraft? There was a really good answer for this, but apparently, it was just not good enough. In the early 1990s, when it had become apparent that Grumman was not going to be selected from among the half dozen other rivals now bidding for the new Navy plane, Grumman officials struck out in new directions. They bought a company that made canoes. They bought a bus company and, with the trusted Grumman name on the side, won the competition for the next generation of busses for the City of New York. But when the first hundred or so of these Iowa built busses were delivered, they kept breaking, sometimes by breaking their axles, as they pounded through the potholes of New York City. Mayor Ed Koch, in a rage, backed out of

the contract and had all the new busses scrapped. And so, Grumman was to be one of the earliest victims of a new American business rule, which was called Grow or Die. They died. In 1994, without a major contract and with just 4,000 employees left from the highpoint of 32,000 employees in 1980, Grumman was sold to Northrop Aviation based in California. Everybody moved away. After some debate, Northrop decided the Grumman name was better than the Northrop name. They renamed their company Northrop-Grumman. And with their new name, they thrived on the fringes of aviation, a second line company in a world of Lockheeds and Boeings that nevertheless was able to pick up contracts for trainers, commercial aviation aircraft, small cargo planes and other transportation vehicles.

The Buck Stops Here Rich or Poor, it Matters Not at All at the Zoning Board of Appeals By Dan Rattiner Every day in towns and villages around the Hamptons, the rich and the poor, the billionaires and the blue-collar workers, meet the same justice when they face our various Zoning Appeals Boards. As an example, here are two cases in the Dan’s Papers files from the hearings of the East Hampton Village Zoning Appeals Board that took place last Friday. One involves a case on West End Avenue, perhaps the most exclusive address in the Hamptons. The other involves a case on Maidstone Avenue, a more modest street where locals live. The first case was about a very large pergola,

11-feet tall, 32-feet long and 16-feet wide, already built in the garden of a tony estate on West End Avenue just beyond the end of Lily Pond Lane. Built late in 2006, it is fronted by Greek columns, has latticework along the sides, an open trellis on the roof and more latticework along the back. It hasn’t got a floor. And it sits right at the property line of the owner of this land, Norma Lerner. Two years ago, this pergola was not there. But Lerner wanted it there. And so, back in December of 2006, she hired a man, Don Sharkey, who is one of the building inspectors for the Town of East Hampton, to arrange the paperwork so she could be allowed to build one

on that spot. Keep in mind that Lerner is in the Village of East Hampton, a small incorporated village that is entirely surrounded by and separate from the Town of East Hampton, which has no jurisdiction in the Village. Sharkey wrote a letter to the Village Building Inspector of East Hampton Village, his counterpart, asking to apply for a building permit. The Village Building Inspector, Tom Lawrence, wrote back that one would not be necessary. The reason, according to Lawrence, was because you can’t build a building on the property line. But you could build a fence, for which you would not need a building permit. (continued on the next page)

DWARF LUGGAGE THIEVES STRIKE AGAIN IN SWEDEN By Dan Rattiner Every few days, I come across an item in the news that is just so odd. I do try to write about these things for the paper by expanding upon them or finding some sort of social relevance with the East End, but with the two items I am going to tell you about now, I just come up blank. Dan Rattiner is the founder of Dan’s Papers. His memoir, In the Hamptons: Fifty Years With Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Billionaires and Celebrities will be published by Harmony Books this May.

First of all, there are the dwarf thieves of Sweden. This came up in the news during the first week in February. It seems that for several months a bus company that takes people on long distance journeys from Stockholm to Vasteras has had many claims of jewelry and other valuables being stolen from the suitcases in the luggage bay. They are warning passengers not to leave any valuables in the suitcases stowed in the luggage bay. Before you get on the bus, take out your diamonds and gold earrings and wear them as you travel. Nothing important should be left below down there. The officials of this Swedish bus company,

called Swebus, have come to the conclusion that on the occasions when these thefts have happened, one of the pieces of luggage must have in it a very small person. Perhaps one of the Gypsy Dwarves of Bulgaria or something. The bus leaves the station and is humming along the highway and this small person makes his way out of his luggage, goes into everybody else’s luggage, takes out the valuables and then returns with it to his own luggage. He gets inside, locks himself up, and, when the bus arrives at its destination, he is unloaded onto the platform with all the other (continued on page 32)

Lawrence wrote back that he thought this pergola qualified as a fence. With this letter in hand, Lerner had the thing built. Personally, I wonder how Lawrence could have mistaken an 11-foot high pergola for a fence, which by law can only be allowed six feet high. But he did. From what I’m told, he did have the plans in hand for the pergola. None of this might have come to the attention of anybody — other than a very puzzled neighbor — except for the fact that Lerner proceeded to install electric lights in the pergola and a sound system so music could emanate from it. And that, finally, is what brought this whole matter to the attention of a whole bunch of neighbors. What was going on? They called the East Hampton Village Zoning Board to complain about the noise and the lights. The East Hampton Village Zoning Board called Lawrence. And Lawrence called Sharkey, who in turn called Lerner. Sharkey then said he certainly recalled being surprised to learn, when he wrote to Lawrence asking about the permit, that none would be needed. After that, having given it some thought, Sharkey then did an unusual thing. He wrote a letter to the East Hampton Town Ethics Board, asking if that Board could give him a letter back saying that it was all right with them that he have a separate business — he works full time for the Town — advising people about zoning matters, as long as he did it on his own time and in a jurisdiction that was not in the Town. The Ethics Board chairman, Hugh King,

wrote back saying what he did on weekends and evenings was perfectly okay with them. They had no jurisdiction over that. And lots of full-time Town employees have businesses on the side like that. What happened next was that Lawrence wrote to the East Hampton Zoning Board of Appeals asking for them to confirm that when he had decided that this pergola was a fence, he had made the correct decision. The Zoning Board said they would take up the matter, and Lawrence said that whatever they decided he would abide by it. Thus this matter came to the attention of the Zoning Board last Friday morning. It would be hard to imagine the Village Zoning Board of Appeals ruling that this was anything but a building. I recall Tina Fredericks, the prominent real estate broker, buying a vacant five-acre parcel on Georgica Pond years ago (when it was affordable) so that she could build an open teahouse on the property. She had a house on Georgica Road. She didn’t need another one. What she proposed to the Village was that she build an open, raised, wooden deck on posts, with a Japanese roof on the top to shelter her and her friends from the rain. They would go down there and, by lantern light, play cards or sit and talk or just watch the pond. The Village turned her down. It was a “structure” they told her. And structures need permits. But then she couldn’t apply for a permit because as a teahouse it was a particular kind of structure known as an “ancillary

structure” that needed to be ancillary to a “main structure.” Since the land was vacant, there was no “main structure.” So that was that. Today, Fredericks, much more prosperous, lives on that property overlooking the pond in a beautiful stone split-level “main structure.” She never did build that teahouse. Or consider what happened to Jerry Seinfeld in East Hampton Village. In 2004, he came to town and bought the 12-acre oceanfront property owned by Billy Joel and soon thereafter renovated the house on that lot, and then on a nearby vacant part of it built a regulation little league field for his kids. The Village demanded he tear it out. It was an “ancillary structure.” And as it turned out, it was on a separate but vacant parcel Seinfeld owned. No main structure there. In the end, Seinfeld built a “main structure,” a modest house in comparison to his own, and then the Village allowed that the ball field could be an “ancillary structure” to the “main structure.” As far as I know, a rule of thumb definition of the law is that if it can be taken down and brought inside for the night, it’s okay. Otherwise, it’s not okay. You might want to keep that in mind. In any case, on Friday morning, the Zoning Appeals Board met to consider the matter of Lerner’s pergola. An attorney hired by Lerner, Tina Platte, told the board that traditionally decorative lawn ornaments such as trellises, pergolas and (continued on page 33)

A Plan for Shelter Island Shall the Ram’s Head Inn be Transformed into a Big Drug Rehab? By Dan Rattiner A group called the Safe Harbor Retreat LLC has an option to lease the Ram’s Head Inn on Shelter Island and turn it into a drug and alcohol rehab center for 162 “clients” (They refer to it as client occupancy levels. 56 in the first year, 162 in the second, and more than 162 as they expand after that.) The founder of the proposed retreat, Joseph McKinsey, has invited interested parties, including residents of Shelter Island, to a meeting at the Ram’s Head on March 15 at 4 p.m. to discuss the matter. In the invitation to the meeting, McKinsey reassured Shelter Islanders that residents will

be given preferred treatment at the new retreat. The addiction retreat, as proposed, together with its staff of doctors, nurses, keepers and treatment experts, will add a total number of new people to the Island that will increase the current population by a signigicant amount. With its focus on medical matters and addictions, it will have a significant impact on how the Island is perceived and how it perceives itself. I think this is worth examining. It is a matter of context. This tight little island, accessible only by ferry, currently does not have much of a context at all. It has a summer colony of about

300 homes owned by very rich people who enjoy seclusion. It has a year-round population of about 1,100, who are mostly blue-collar workers, fishermen, house watchers, bar owners, bed and breakfast owners and others who enjoy seclusion. There is really no commercial downtown. There are a few stores, both on the Main Street where the school, churches and town hall are, and up near North Ferry at the Heights. There are plenty of drug rehab facilities elsewhere. The largest drug rehab center in the area is Seafield in Westhampton, which has 90 beds. The important thing is, however, that in (continued on page 34)

LOCALLY GROWN EAST END HMO GOES BANKRUPT By David Stoll It seemed like a good idea at the time. Because the insurance industry seems to aggravate doctors and patients alike, why don’t doctors form their own insurance company, one that would understand the thinking process of doctors and be on the side of patients? That is exactly what a group of Long Island doctors did in 1995, forming MDNY based in Melville. But as the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry, the experiment was an utter failure — perennially late in paying doctors, MDNY is now going out of business following liquidation proceedings, leaving

patients without continued coverage and doctors largely unpaid. Although MDNY’s website indicates that it remains active, without any mention of the company’s troubles, the dénouement has been in the making for years. As early as 2000, the New York State Superintendent of Insurance found that MDNY was insolvent, but indicated that MDNY had a plan to rectify the situation. That same year and in the prior year, MDNY was fined for not paying doctors promptly. By 2002, the same fine was imposed but in an amount exceeding $120,000 (vastly greater than an earlier fine of $5,000).

Also in 2002, the Superintendent of Insurance reported that MDNY was misallocating claims by business segments, thereby distorting the results of those segments. Significantly, the Superintendent found that MDNY had vastly understated the results for its “Healthy New York” program and was generally showing an underwriting gain on its books when in fact it was facing a loss. Apparently never rectified, this situation finally reached a boiling point in 2007 when the roosters came home to roost. In September, MDNY completely stopped (continued on page 32)

Rida’s “Low.� The Spielberg Drop, for those not familiar with it, is the sensational new theme park ride in Southampton that had its grand opening this week. The ride, which was built originally by Hampton Subway to be an underground spur between the Lobster Inn and Shinnecock Station, was sold last week to Two Brothers Enterprises, which has in just five days converted it to a ride for children of all ages. It debuted this Wednesday in one of the most fantastic grand openings in the history of American amusement rides, featuring Roy Rogers, Mickey Mouse, Peter Rabbit, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Harry Potter. The ride is three miles long through an underground tunnel, and patrons climb aboard subway cars at the Lobster Inn entrance to enjoy the experience. The cars go slowly down the tracks toward Shinnecock, then at the halfway point appear to get into trouble. A storm comes up, rain batters the windshield outside and the wind whistles, and as the voice of what sounds like E.T. warns all passengers to hang on to each (continued on page 34)

Albert Maysles and Jessica Lange

Jessica Lange as Big Edie First the Documentary, then the Broadway Show, Now the Movie By Debbie Tuma If you didn’t know she was a two-time Oscarwinning actress, you’d assume that Jessica Lange was just another fair-haired, sweet and soft-spoken Midwestern girl. But after decades of playing strong-willed, eccentric and colorful leading women, Lange still maintains her quiet demeanor and keen sense of humor about her work and life. Walking across the stage of the New York Times Center in Manhattan on February 28 for a two-hour interview, she still looked young and sexy in her short skirt and tall black boots. The reason for the appearance is Lange’s most recent undertaking — the role of Big

Edie in an upcoming HBO film named for the infamous East Hampton home, Grey Gardens. The film, directed by Long Islander Michael Sucsy and co-starring Drew Barrymore as Little Edie, just wrapped, and is expected to air this fall. Lange sat down next to Charles “Chip” McGrath, writer at large for the New York Times, flashed a big smile to the audience of several hundred, and waved to noted filmmaker Albert Maysles, who sat in the front row. Maysles and his brother David filmed and produced the original film, Grey Gardens in 1976 in East Hampton. After a successful run of many months on Broadway, this show, which

starred Christine Ebersole as both Big and Little Edie Beale, the estranged cousins of Jackie Kennedy, recently closed. Despite the fact that Lange had to spend four hours a day being made up for the part of Big Edie — fat suit, wig and transformation of her brown eyes to blue — she said it was “the most fun I’ve ever had working on a set.” Although she has played such amazing, award-winning roles as Frances Farmer, Blanche Dubois, Patsy Kline and Mary Tyrone, Lange said, “In Grey Gardens, this is the farthest I’ve ever been from myself physically, to play this fascinating old woman, and I found it (continued on the next page)

HAMPTON TRADITION XXVII — STRONG’S MARINE By T.J.Clemente Strong’s Marine on Ole Jules Lane in Mattituck, with branches in Southampton and Flanders, has a tradition of being a hub of activity covering all recreational boating needs under their mantra, “The home of super service.” With four generations of experience, Strong’s offers boaters full service from rebuilding engines to detailing. The Strong family has long aimed at doing the best job possible in order to build relationships with its customers. The story of Strong’s Marine is one of a family legacy — a father passing life lessons on to

his sons. In 1945, after World War II, Navy veterans Stuart Strong of Babylon and his buddy Sid Holland, established Strong and Holland in Lindenhurst. Stuart Strong preached business relationships to his son, and eventually his grandson. David Strong, Stuart’s son, had a technical talent and when the time was right (1965), he purchased the nine-acre James Creek Marina in Mattituck from Pete and Jim Kreh. With the help of his wife Dotti, who kept shop, David harvested scallops and clams from both the Peconic and Great South Bays. At night, David’s son Jeff (the current owner of Strong’s)

held the work light while David repaired motors and everything else. The very early stages of Strong’s Marine were “sort of like a farm,” recalled Jeff. “My sister Nancy, my Mom and my Dad and I all had our daily chores.” Jeff purchased the business from his parents in 1992. The family has grown the business into a full-service, award-winning marine business. The original Strong’s Marine had a capacity of 30 boats using the old cable and pulleys system. Today, there are 100 boats on floating docks in personal slips, with the capacity for 133 additional boats in land storage. (continued on page 33)

Jitney buses that were chartered by the Committee for a Green South Fork and sponsored by both Corcoran and Prudential. At the meeting, prior to the vote, both Southampton Councilman Chris Nuzzi and Councilwoman Anna Throne-Holst objected to the aboveground power lines and poles, and asked that they be buried. In addition, a letter from NYS Assemblyman Fred Thiele of Sag Harbor was read, stating that the only acceptable way to do this project is 100% under-

spent 23 years at the New Yorker, what her favorite movie roles were, Lange said she most enjoyed portraying the women who were “larger than life”—big characters, from Edith Beale to Carley in Blue Sky to Frances Farmer, for which she won an Oscar. “I love the ups and downs of these characters, because there is so much you can do with them,” she said. “In Blue Sky, working with director Tony Richardson was so great because he was an actor I really could trust, and there were no boundaries.” Citing her other roles as Blanche Dubois and Mary Tyrone, she added, “I like playing women who are basically holding on by a thread, and yet there is steel in them, somewhere — they are survivors. I like mad people.” McGrath laughed, telling Lange, “I think you’re different, and quite centered, as a solid Minnesota girl. So I guess you must study these women.” He also noted that in addition to Grey Gardens, Lange is starring in another new film, Bonneville, which just opened in theaters on February 29. She stars as one of three leading women, along with her friends Kathy Bates and Joan Allen, who take a road trip. “We usually see male road movies, but this is unique in that these are three mature women, and it’s a portrait of their friendship,” said Lange. “It’s a very subtle film, with no violence, and my character is grieving for her dead husband.” Lange added that since it’s not a typical male-driven film, “If women want to take their husbands, tell them it’s about a car — a Bonneville.” McGrath teased Lange about how she got started in the movie business. “People from Minnesota become ice fishermen, not actors. How did you get started?” he asked.

Lange explained that as an art student in college she joined some fellow photographers on a jaunt to Europe, where she studied mime and street theater in Paris. Upon her return to New York City, she took classes at the Actor’s Studio, while waitressing at the famous Lion’s Head Restaurant. Her first film was also a memorable one — the remake of King Kong in 1976. This led to a bit part in All That Jazz, and then to her famous, steamy role in The Postman Also Rings Twice with Jack Nicholson. With her next Oscar-winning roles in Frances and Tootsie, which were only her third and fourth movies, Lange commented, “During the 1980s, there was a plethora of wonderful leading roles for women. All my friends and I had great opportunities back then — we were all starring in great movies during that era.” It was during the filming of Frances that she met her husband, Sam Shephard, and had three children. She also starred in the films Country, Sweet Dreams and Rob Roy, and in the stage productions of Long Days Journey into the Night and Streetcar Named Desire. Lange said one of the hardest parts of her job is coming to the end of a role. “When you spend all the time studying and learning a character, and then you play her for 20 weeks, when you come to the final performance, you feel that you’ve lost someone,” she said. “I go through a period of grieving — of physically missing these people. For example, I wanted to play Blanche DuBois forever — she was my kind of character.” The New York Times Center will be having additional talks with renowned actors, including Helen Mirren.

so interesting, to become someone else, so completely. It was also the first time I ever wore prosthesis — I had such a good time.” Lange credited her co-star, Drew Barrymore, for being “amazing as Little Edie,” and the movie’s writer and director, Michael Sucsy, for his talent. “He grew up on Long Island, and has a great insight and feeling for these people who lived there,” she said. In the film Grey Gardens, which captures the bizarre lives of Big and Little Edie Beale living in a dilapidated old house in East Hampton overrun with cats, Lange also explained that she sang for the first time in her life. “I actually sang several songs in the movie, including ‘We Belong Together,’ and Big Edie’s version of ‘Tea for Two,’” she said. “Drew and I also do a soft shoe dance.

George Skellinger and his cousin Kim with a 23-pound lobster in 1968.

Lobstering Why are there Hard Times Ahead for the East End Lobstermen? By April Gonzales Nineteenth century Massachusetts law stated that you couldn’t feed lobster to the hired help more than twice a week. So readily available, it was considered trash fish. Lobster fishing only became a viable way to make a living in the Northeast after World War II when increased demand changed the market. Long Island Sound has its own history of lobstering, beginning after the war. But a massive die-off in 1999 has raised questions on environmental conditions and developments in the area. More recently, there are reports that a secondary disease is on the rise, and lobster numbers are on the decline. Some local lobstermen think that predation by finfish, whose numbers are rising now after a low in the ‘80s and ‘90s, may be affecting larval lobsters in the Sound. You can’t talk about the Long Island lobster industry without talking to Southampton resident George Skellinger, whose family has been wed to the sea for over 300 years. In the early ‘50s, Skellinger would set 1,000 pots at a time in Shinnecock Bay. Empty pots were moved farther east, until over the years they finally rounded the point in Montauk. One January thaw, lobsters were found in New Haven Harbor, and began the year-round cycle of lobstering that was aided by wire cages instead of the old wooden pots. George’s sons Tom and Dan, and nephew

Walter have followed his footsteps. The younger generation of Skellingers still goes lobstering on Block Island Sound, but sees it as a seasonal occupation.

Tim Spellman with Canadian lobsters at Schmidt’s today.

George Skellinger calls the lobstering job “very beautiful.” He said, “You went out and did your thing out in the ocean, no noise or confusion, you didn’t make much money but you did it anyway. Get there before the daylight, the sun is just coming up and the gulls are screaming. Other than that, it’s nice and

quiet.” In his day, Skellinger could catch 10-12 pound lobsters out in the ocean, although they never got that big in the Sound. The biggest lobster the younger Skellingers caught was a five pounder off of Gardiner’s Island. Last year immature lobsters, sometimes 30-40 at a time, got caught in the pots. When Walter and Dan Skellinger returned to see if they were up to the legal size limits, the lobsters had disappeared. “Lobsters migrate,” Walter observed. “I suspect that the Bay was a nursery. It was like a herd came through. We started on the west side of the pond and as the season progressed they moved east and then they disappeared.” Walter and Dan also tend fish traps in Peconic Bay. Last year they found 12 lobsters in the trap, a very unusual but pleasant surprise, since lobsters aren’t typically found in the Bay. Walter doesn’t care much about the numbers. “Any day is a good day,” he said. “You lift those traps up and open ‘em up and see what’s in there and it’s just like Christmas. I wake up at three in the morning. I can’t wait to get out there.” Richie Miller of East Quogue is a politically savvy, experienced and erudite lobsterman who didn’t give up easily in the early days. The species of lobster we get here is called Homarus americanus, and Long Island is the southern end of its range, which extends north into Canada. It wasn’t thought possible for this (continued on the next page)

out of the shell. Indian Cove once paid Miller $75 for a blue lobster. They kept it in a tank to see if it would molt true to color, which it did three times. Now retired, Miller claims that, unless you’ve paid your bills and don’t have a mortgage, you can’t really be a lobsterman. He said, “Just being out there with my sons and my being free and independent,”

was the lure for him. Miller believes that Mother Nature is always in flux and there is no constant for any natural resource including lobster. In the ‘60s the industry boomed and up until the ‘90s it seemed like an endless resource — “ undepletable,” he recalled. Was there an increase in the lobsters’ death rate or simply more lobstermen who were becoming more efficient at it? No one can definitively say. Most lobstermen point to water quality and increased water temperature as overt causes of death — even 2 degrees can alter lobsters’ spawning habits. Runoff from rivers and sewage treatment plants around Long Island Sound and pesticides, which affect larval stages, all were questioned. But there’s no single smoking gun. Scientists agree with lobstermen that environmental change is an issue. Antoinette Clemetson, fisheries specialist at New York Sea Grant, confirmed the scientific community’s consensus: Lobsters were under tremendous stress from an increase in temperature that compromised their health and made them susceptible to disease. But dead lobsters, like dead trees, don’t succumb from the first thing that affects them or the last thing to attack. Insufficient water, nutrients or root damage create stress in trees. While not fatal, those things expose a tree to predation. Sap sucking insects can transmit a fungus that affects the tree’s ability to take up water. The combination of predation and infection kill the stressed tree. Remedying the first signs of stress can save a tree, but how do we readjust the seas? Bassam Allam studies shell disease, a separate problem, at the Marine Animal Disease Lab in Stony Brook. Fishermen originally noticed the mottled shells on lobsters from greater depths, but it is now widespread in the Sound. Several species of bacteria colonize the lobsters’ shell and corrode it like rust. The disease isn’t fatal and affected lobsters are still edible, but the holes it creates in the shells

species to survive so far south. But Miller laid traps for 20 years, starting in the ‘50s. Leaving early in the morning from Port Jefferson, he experimented, putting out traps where no one else did, in places lobsters were not supposed to exist. Knowing when and where to set the pots, trial and error, and a gut feeling would lead to the lowering of the pots. The biggest ocean lobster that he ever caught was with a net off of Bellport in the early ‘60s. It weighed 42 pounds. It took Miller half a day to sell it because no one could figure out how to get it

Who’s Here By Katy Gurley When it comes to work, Joe Pintauro is a man on the move. Always creating or rewriting, there are few moments when Sag Harbor’s own poet, playwright and author takes time to take stock. One of those moments came Monday night when Guild Hall gave him an Annual Lifetime Achievement Award for Literary Arts at a gala ceremony at the Rainbow Room in New York. Anticipation of the award has given him a rare opportunity to put “a temporary period at the end of a hell of a lot of work” to date, and consider his achievements over the last 40 years, Pintauro said in an interview from his home in Key West, Florida last week. “At first, I didn’t think I had achieved a lifetime of literary excellence,” he said, declining to reveal his age. “I’m constantly writing and rewriting and I haven’t finished doing what I want. So the award kind of surprised me. But since I heard about it, I’ve taken some time to remember all the things I’ve put out there.” Those “things” include several volumes of poetry, two books of fiction and two novellas in the works; nearly 50 plays, many of them one-acts; among the full-length plays are Snow Orchid, the criticallyacclaimed Raft of the Medusa and Beside Herself and, best known among East End audiences, Men’s Lives, an adaptation of the book of the same name by Sagaponack writer Peter Mattheissen. The book — and the play — is about the slow unraveling of life and work for the traditional bay fishermen of the Hamptons. Pintauro also said the award made him profoundly grateful to the “many people, every critic, every agent, every editor, actor, stagehand I’ve every worked with.” (Guild Hall Lifetime Achievement awards were also presented Monday night to three other people — actor Mel Brooks for Performing Arts; artist David Salle for Visual Arts; and Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CKX, Inc. Robert F.X. Sillerman for Leadership and Philanthropic Endeavors.) “Joe is a man with a big heart and big eyes who sees a lot of beauty and pain in the world — he writes very eloquently about people going through change,” said Josh Gladstone, artistic director of the John Drew Theater at Guild Hall. “He’s a very socially conscious and awake writer. When he’s not working, he’s working. He’s constantly scribbling and he writes and rewrites a lot.” Gladstone got some firsthand experience of that scribbling and rewriting last week. Pintauro insisted on rewriting a scene from Beside Herself (a 1989 play about, among other things, a woman

Joseph Pintauro Playwright/Poet who has conversations with all sides of herself) that Gladstone and his wife, actress Kate Meuth, read Monday morning on Bonnie Grice’s show on WLIU radio. Actress Sloane Shelton also read monologues from Men’s Lives on the broadcast. It was just one scene, but Pintauro — who was a guest on the show — said, “I looked at the scene, which was originally played by William Hurt in the original production in New York, and

ple, What I Did for Love, was produced at the John Drew in 2002, and a formal reading of Beside Herself was performed in 2006. Murder by Chocolate was produced in 1995. Bay Street Theater is famously known for producing Men’s Lives as its inaugural performance when the theater opened in 1992. Steve Hamilton, founder and executive director, remembers how that play came about. “We were just founding the theater and we wanted to position ourselves as a community organization, not just a summer theater. I was reading Men’s Lives at the time, and I thought, wouldn’t this make a great play. But who would the author be? I had known Joe as a beautiful writer and a poetic writer and we called him and asked him if he knew the book.” “And he said, ‘Do I! I have an adaptation of a play of the book in my closet, but it is awful.’ So we asked to see it and after about 14 drafts…it was ready.” The play was so popular it was repeated the following season and the theater also performed a staged reading of the play in September last year. In 1995, Bay Street also produced By the Sea, By the Sea, By the Beautiful Sea, a trilogy of one-act plays all involving three actors on the same beach at different times of day. The plays were written by Pintauro, Lanford Wilson and Terrence McNally. In 1997, Bay Street also produced another Pintauro play, Heaven and Earth, another adaptation of a book by the same name, this time by Steve Wick, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist at Newsday. The book and play capture the lives of the last of the farming families on the North Fork. “God is the unseen character,” in the play, Pintauro, a former priest, said in an interview with the New York Times in July of that year. Though Pintauro is a local hero, his work is known all over the country and has been performed, among other places, in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and London. Pintauro was born in Ozone Park in Queens. He attended grade school at Public School 62, where his 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Dean, predicted his future after he completed an essay on Abraham Lincoln that imagined the young Abe traveling with his family and viewing the world through the cracks in a wagon. “I wrote the whole thing without ever mentioning the Gettysburg address,” Pintauro recalled, certain he would flunk the assignment. “But the teacher called my mother and said, ‘This boy is going to become a writer.’” At John Adams High School in Queens, Pintauro wrote for the school newspaper, The Flipper, before going on to Manhattan College

He got a call from a then unknown young actor and director named Dustin Hoffman, who had selected his play to direct. I said, ‘My God, this needs rewriting.’ You’re never finished with something, even if it’s been published.” Locally, both the John Drew Theater and the Bay Street Theater have produced Pintauro’s plays. A series of short plays about theater peo-

to 4-12 years in prison on February 28 for killing Thomas Heftler, a Southampton lawyer, in a hit and run accident that took place last June. Heftler, a prominent partner in the Southampton law firm, Stroock & Stroock &


Lavan Llp, and a Southampton Village resident, was riding his bicycle at 6 a.m. on the eastbound shoulder of Montauk Highway last June, when Cacace’s work van crossed the double yellow line and hit him. Heftler died from the impact, according to police.

Last month, Cacace pled guilty to seconddegree manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter, and driving while intoxicated. He admitted that the night before the alleged accident, he was drinking at a beach party in Mastic Beach.

went to New York and found myself sitting with Dustin and Robert Duvall. We were all quite young at the time. I found I really liked hanging around with these people,” he said. “Dustin directed the play and Bob was in it, and that was what started me off.” The play is about a man and a woman who have each lost their spouses and meet at a cemetery, where they get drunk together on brandy and ruminate on life and love. After finally getting permission to leave the priesthood from the Catholic Church, Pintauro joined the Young & Rubicam, Inc. advertising agency in New York, where he worked a day job as a copywriter while writing poetry and more plays in his spare time. After eight years, his outside writing got in the way of his copywriting duties. Fired from his job, Pintauro needed a place to begin making a living as a poet, playwright and author. Finding his way to Sag Harbor in the late ‘60s, Pintauro in 1969 invested in two things — a small Victorian house on John Street and a typewriter. In the ‘70s, he worked on two novels, Cold Hands, and State of Grace both published in the early ‘80s. The New York Times cited Cold

Hands, about a young boy’s coming of age, as a best novel of 1980. Though the typewriter has long since been traded for a computer, Pintauro still works from his house in Sag Harbor, when he isn’t spending part of the winter in Florida. “Lately, I’ve been working on two pieces of fiction. They are interconnected novellas that add up to one novel,” he said, and added he is also at work on an existing play that has been workshopped in London, Los Angeles and at the New Jersey Repertory Theater in Long Branch, N.J. He didn’t want to give the title of his new work, or provide details of the stories. But, once again, he is rewriting. “I’ve taken an ax to the play and restructured it so that now there is a very economical exchange of dialogue,” he said. “I’ve always thought of myself as a kind of spoiled dilettante writer in that I really do write for myself. I enjoy it so much. I don’t think of it as anything that belongs to someone else. It’s such a pleasurable addiction for me. And I never thing of something that has a beginning and an end since I’m always rewriting no matter how long a piece has been out there.”

(continued from previous page)

where he received a bachelor of arts degree. He also attended St. Jerome’s College, Ontario, where he received a B.A in Philosophy. He later completed studies for an M.A. in American Literature at Fordham University. Pintauro’s education took a decidedly different turn in the ‘50s, when, after questioning the meaning of God when his mother got a fatal diagnosis of breast cancer, he decided to study theology at Our Lady of Angels Seminary, Niagara University, in upstate New York. “I was at a stage when I was demanding all these answers to life, death and faith,” Pintauro said. “And I loved the seminary.” But his subsequent life as a parish priest for the following six to seven years was not altogether satisfying. “I think I was too much of an idealist for it. It sounds like a terrible judgment, but there was a spiritual element that was lacking in the priests around me and my own faith was flagging,” he said. Toward the end of his priesthood, Pintauro submitted his first play, A – My Name is Alice, to a contest at the Circle in the Square Theater in New York. He got a call from a then unknown young actor and director named Dustin Hoffman, who had selected his play to direct. “I

DAN'S PAPERS, March 7, 2008 Page 29

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner I am Moo I’m sitting here on the couch next to my dog Moo. It’s a Sunday afternoon and he’s asleep. Moo has had a long day of sitting around, then running through the dog door to the outside, then coming back inside, then running outside again. Having spent most of this Sunday inside, aside from going to Waldbaums in East Hampton, I feel like I kind of got what it’s like to be Moo. The only difference between us today is that I change the channel on the television. Moo is a Wheaton Terrier, which means he’s a beach-sand colored, medium-sized dog. He is also lovably dumb. He is a real dog. He gets totally pumped when I say with excitement, “Moo, you want to wrestle? Come on!” He’ll pop up from wherever he is and clobber around, then get spent and go outside and fall asleep. I spend countless hours thinking about what Moo thinks about. I feel like his internal monologue every day sounds like this. “I think I’ll go outside today, but first I’m going to see if David or Dan has put any cheese in my dog dish. Nope, okay I’ll go lay down on the couch. Holy cow, I’m tired. I love sleep. Gonna go to sleep right now. WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?! MUST RUN OUTSIDE MUST RUN OUTSIDE. I’m onto something. This could be big. There is a burglar over here. I just know it. Hey! Hey! Come out! I know you’re there! Hey! Hey? You there? Hello? Hmmm. What does that smell like? Why did I come outside? I’m tired, better go to the couch, but first better pee over

here…” It’s amazing how dogs become such an important part of our lives. I take care of Moo whenever my Dad leaves for New York City, so Moo and I have grown quite a bond. My Dad also has a bond with Moo, but his way of bonding with him is coming up with stranger and stranger ways of feeding him, then his way of either belittling, or bonding with me, is to explain, in great detail, exactly how he fed Moo this week and while he’s away, how he wants me to feed Moo. I am not making this up. On Friday, this is exactly what my Dad said to me when I stopped by the house on the way to work from Montauk. “Son, you have to feed Moo while I’m away.” “Okay no problem Dad. Thanks for reminding me.” “Well listen, okay? I fed him yesterday and he REALLY likes this. Okay, I took half a jar of chicken and rice baby food, then added water to it. But it was hot water that I added. You just turn the hot water valve on the sink and hot water comes out. THEN I took his dog food and gently mixed it with the baby food and hot water, then put it into the microwave for 30 seconds. Then mixed it with a spoon. He loved it. He ate the whole thing.” “Okay Dad, I got it.” Now Moo, in general, eats just about anything. So no matter what you put in his dish, as long as it’s beef, chicken or cheese flavored, he’ll go nuts for it. My Dad doesn’t seem to get this. Every time he feeds Moo and adds human food to his dog food and Moo likes it, he thinks

he has discovered a totally new way of feeding Moo. My Dad has gone from feeding Moo dog food with Parmesan cheese, to shredded mozzarella cheese, to shredded cheddar, to Mexican shredded cheese, to baked beans, to baked beans with cheese and now we are on to beef or chicken flavored baby food. Keep in mind, my Dad has explained in great detail to me for about a year now, the different ways of mixing in the cheese or the baby food. “You have to mix it, otherwise he won’t eat the dog food.” If he’s watching me while I mix the food, he’ll say, “Don’t mix it! He won’t eat it if you mix it! What’s wrong with you? You never listen.” Today it’s just Moo and me, and baby food, microwaved, mixed with dog food and hot water is on the menu. But I’m going to go an extra mile and top it off with some Parmesan cheese, so that when my Dad comes back and feeds Moo just the hot water with the dog food mixed with the baby food, Moo will be like, “What about the Parmesan cheese? I wish David was feeding me.” And then the next time I see Moo, he’ll be super excited to see me. The trouble with this is that my Dad will notice that Moo isn’t nuts about his menu anymore and add another component, to which I will be forced to add to or change so that I will be Moo’s favorite chef and my Dad will continue to tell me just exactly what it is that Moo likes, or so he thinks anyway. It’s just one big chess match here at the Rattiner household.

The Sheltered Islander The Sheltered Islander #487 “What we have here, is a failure to communicate.” — Cool Hand Luke. German puts out cigarette with fire extinguisher, Tue. Feb. 19, 2008. BERLIN (Reuters) — A virulent anti-smoker in Germany was so angry when his girlfriend lit up, he emptied a fire extinguisher to put out the cigarette, caking her and their apartment in powder. After the woman ignored his request not to smoke, the 42-year-old sprayed the contents of the extinguisher all around the flat, shouting abuse, police said. “He said he wasn’t bothered by the damage it caused,” the spokesman said. “And that he’s through with his girlfriend.” Yes, those reformed smokers can certainly be emphatic. But haven’t we all had moments when we overreacted to something? In a police station 15 years ago: “Now Ms. Flynn, driving a Bobcat through the sliding glass door and scooping up your children’s toys and then driving and dumping them in a landfill is a little extreme, don’t you think?” “You don’t know these kids, Officer. I swear they are the spawn of Satan! One is three and the other is two. Together, they have the combined destructive power of a category five Tormado.” “You mean tornado.” “No, I mean tormado. That’s what my daughter, the evil one, calls it. They call down the powers of Hell and in the three minutes it takes me to run to the bathroom and back, they have gotten toys

I have never seen and filled in the remaining spaces on the rug, trapped the cat in the dishwasher, kneecapped the mailman with a wooden spoon and ground up my glasses in the sink disposal. I think they communicate telepathically with other children and systematically select one mother at a time to drive insane. It’s their goal to take over the world. I think Mr. Rogers is their ringleader. I think he sends them messages through the TV.” “Now, Ms Flynn. Stop and think about how that sounds.” “You’re right. Mr. Rogers couldn’t do it alone. The Teletubbies must be in on it too. It’s that Tinky Winky or maybe Po. No, Po isn’t bright enough, definitely Tinky Winky.” “You know what you need? You need to take some time off during the day, treat yourself a little, give yourself a break.” “Right, and whose gonna watch the twin pillars of peril?” “How about your husband? Won’t he watch them for a while?” “Not in this life.” “Maybe you should get some valium from your doctor.” “Now there’s a idea I can use. Why didn’t I think of that?” Two weeks later, in the same police station: “Ms Flynn, we’re all real glad that you’ve stopped using construction equipment as a means of housekeeping and child rearing.”

By Sally Flynn

“Yes, things are so much better now.” “Can you tell me why your children just sit on the couch now and stare into space?” “I move them every hour.” “Yes, I’m sure you do. But why are they so floppy and need to be positioned on the couch?” “It’s your plan, I’m very happy.” “My plan?” “You suggested I go a see a doctor and get some meds to help me deal with the stress of raising two children under five.” “And you did that?” “Yes. I’ve been giving the kids regular doses and everything is just wonderful. There’s no fighting, no destruction, no screaming, nothing. It’s perfect. I get up in the morning, water the plants, position the children. I can’t thank you enough for the advice.” “Actually, I meant that you should take the medication.” “They didn’t have enough control before? You want ME to medicate MYSELF and give them all the strategic advantages in this parenting war? I think not.” “It’s called child abuse.” “NO — it’s called self defense!” “Give me the medication, Ms. Flynn.” “Here’s my purse, get it yourself.” “Everything in the bag is sticky and damp!” “My kids poured maple syrup in my bag before I put them on meds.” “I see. You know, perhaps I’ve been a little hasty.”

Texas was in, was tremendous. People were shouting encouragement here. People were shouting encouragement there. You would have thought Barack Obama was a rock star and these were members of his fan club. Well these ARE people in his fan club. Twenty minutes later — it was now pushing 9:30 p.m. — most of the callers had said their goodbyes and a few of us were left sitting around, including some from elsewhere in the house who were not Obama enthusiasts. We talked. The Obama people were quite clear that they thought Obama was going to win the nomination and then go on to win the presidency.


“He is just so full of ideas,” somebody said. “He throws them up on the wall. Some of them are bound to stick. And he’s not a fanatic about it. If things don’t stick, he’s got other things.” “He’s going to need an army of people to try and get all his things done.” Well, I thought. He’s got an army. And if he wins, he’s got the bureaucracy, a whole army of them too. “It’s a bit chancy, voting for him.” “Yes it is. But I’m willing to take that chance. It’s time to take that chance.” Some of the older people in the room said that the energy surrounding Obama reminded them of the energy that surrounded JFK 40 years ago.

Others in the room talked about how it might be safer to vote for someone who was more cautious about things, someone like Hillary Clinton. Or John McCain. They were more circumspect. Possibly because they had more experience. “They’re part of the establishment,” somebody said. “With McCain, it’s a whole different philosophy,” someone else said. “And it’s right out there. People can see it. And they can make the choice. This is going to be a wonderful election, I think. And I hope we win.” I certainly could agree with that. This election campaign sure is a breath of fresh air. No doubt about it. And you know, I’m not so sure that either McCain or Hillary do have this software. •

But Airbus has its own argument. Boeing has the long-term support of the American military. And the American military rivals Europe. Last year, it appeared that Airbus might actually surpass Boeing in size. But Airbus suffered a disaster. Its new superplane, an aircraft that would be able to accommodate about 800 passengers on two decks, developed technical trouble during the construction process. Airbus postponed the delivery of this aircraft. Then postponed it again. The postponement is now in the neighborhood of five years and counting, and this has seriously messed up the planning of many major airlines, all of which have now cancelled their orders and turned back to Boeing. What a setback for Airbus. Well, guess which bidder won the contract for the successor of the C-130 cargo plane? It was announced last week. On its merits, NorthropGrumman, allied with Airbus, has won with a plan for a cargo plane that will be better, cheaper and more practical than what was proposed by Boeing.

Call it Leroy Grumman’s revenge, if you like. Whatever it is, it’s quite a turnaround for the American military and will have as serious impact on Boeing as the superplane is having on Airbus. Of course, it’s too late for the Eastern End of Long Island. All that remains of Grumman out here these days is the big merry-go-round that is the centerpiece of downtown Greenport, given to that town by Grumman for $1 when they closed up shop in Calverton. It had been in Calverton for employee parties on the picnic grounds of that site during all those years. As for the runways at that airport, they are still there, although one of them is soon to be dug up and replaced with a lake, around which will be all sorts of rides and entertainments of a new theme park which will have as its centerpiece a 40-story tall ski mountain. That is, if the presence of endangered shorteared hoot owls found on the property grazing for the winter doesn’t stop that project. But that’s another story. •

Last week, the government announced the results of the competition to build the next generation of their big warhorse C-130 cargo plane. The two competitors were Northrop-Grumman, which had made an alliance with the European aircraft manufacturer Airbus, and on the other side was Boeing, which was the maker of the C130. This was no ordinary contract. The value of the initial order of these planes would be $30 billion. That’s right, billion with a B. The longrange value of the contract would exceed $100 billion. This amount exceeds the gross national product of many foreign countries. As you probably know, Boeing based in Seattle is the largest manufacturer of commercial aircraft in the world. They have recently been challenged by Airbus, the European consortium with its headquarters in Toulouse, France that, according to many in the business, has a considerable advantage over Boeing because it is owned by actual countries with almost limitless resources. Boeing has filed lawsuits about this.

allow other bacteria to infect the sensitive body of the lobster, like bacteria in a wound, and lead to their death. Bassam sees the bacteria’s presence as a symptom, not a cause, and raises the question of a solution. If the problem is a result of the alteration in the environment, like water temperature, how is that changed? In the colder waters off the coast of Maine, these diseases and die-offs are practically nonexistent. Many lobsterman think the issue even more complex. Will this tasty crustacean go from being a delicacy to a luxury? Tim Spellman of Schmidt’s seafood market buys locally when they are in season, but imports lobsters from Canada when the local supply runs out or starts to molt. Sam Respoli of Hampton Bays bought his lobster boat from Richie Miller. He used to lobster year round but now he switches from lobsterman to bayman — clamming, scalloping or catching conch in the lobster off-season, “when they’re out laying eggs in the late summer,” he said. He sees the lobster populations as cyclical, like the foxes and rabbits, and that a combina-

tion of complex environmental and biological factors created the 1999 crash. It may be that, like gypsy moths, lobsters reached a certain population density that couldn’t be supported by the environment and so were killed off by disease. Despite the scientific theories, Respoli used his own barometer to know when to go out in the boat. “ Lobsters are a lot like ants,” he said. “When I see the ants coming out of the ground I am going to start lobstering.”

stuff. Some burly fellow then carries him off. Later, they count the loot. To counteract this, Swebus has announced that they plan to put surveillance cameras in the luggage bays of their busses. They also intend to inspect all large bags, particularly those that are duffle bags held together at the top with rope fashioned in a bow. One way or another they will get to the bottom of this. Another luggage bay story comes from an American Airlines 757 aircraft that was flying over the Rockies westbound toward San Francisco three months ago. It had departed from Newark Airport. Suddenly, the pilot found that some of the controls that steer the plane were malfunctioning. He was able to continue along, but it was a struggle. He’d have to make an emergency landing somewhere soon. He informed the crew and the crew informed the passengers. It appeared that some of the lines going toward the tail of the plane had been severed somewhere. There were backup steering lines, but even a few of them seemed to be malfunc-

flat screen TVs will display advertising visible to pilots and passengers flying into East Hampton. The revenue from these ads will be split 50/50 between Luxury Media Partners and the East Hampton Town Board. Originally the plan was to have advertisements at the airport involving huge Ralph Lauren billboard ads lining the end of the runway, featuring images of models. But that original plan was scrubbed. The man behind this project is Brian Pussilano, who said that they have already received verbal commitments from Audi and Polo Ralph Lauren for advertising, and they’re in the process of closing deals on other luxury goods companies as the summer season




approaches. The Town Board, which is largely in control of this project, is not cutting any corners when it comes to Town Code. Some of the light box advertisements might have to be readjusted so that they conform to town lighting regulations. The ads will of course, not be allowed to make any noise, either. The ad space will cost about $100,000 for the summer season and so far, the plan is not tremendously controversial. After a brief walk through the

airport on a slow day to talk to people, not one person expressed concern that the advertisements would be a nuisance. Most were apathetic, while others knew a lot about the details of the deal. “They are trying to get the big guns, you know, Ferrari and other big companies. It should be very interesting,” said a source who wished to remain anonymous. One would imagine the banner pilots who drag advertisements through the sky above the beaches might be a little agitated by this business endeavor.

making payments to at least some doctors and then in November informed participating doctors that it was going out of business. Because it appears that MDNY’s assets are quite limited, debts to individual doctors in the tens of thousands will go largely unpaid. In a liquidation proceeding, a company’s assets (from a lease to computers to filing cabinets) are sold, and its unsecured creditors are paid from the cash on a proportional basis, but only after secured creditors are paid. The best that participating doctors can hope for in this situation is that MDNY’s customer list can be sold to a competing insurance company for an amount high enough to


tioning. Now he could only make left turns. Nevertheless, he slowed down, steadied the plane as he approached the runway and then, finally, made a successful emergency landing in Salt Lake City. All the passengers were shaken but happy to be alive, and they were escorted off the plane. Down below, the baggage handlers opened the luggage bay to be confronted by a large black lab, wagging his tail and displaying a whole lot of wires in his mouth. From what anybody can figure out, the lab, who had been brought aboard in a crate, had

somewhere over Ohio chewed his way out of the crate. He walked around in the luggage bay for a while, sniffing the different bags, and then decided he didn’t like it in there and ought to try to get out. The door was locked. So he went to plan B. He’d chew his way out. By St. Louis, he had chewed his way through the interior paneling along one wall, then over Kansas City he chewed his way to the wiring and the insulation, which he began to rip out with his front paws and teeth. He was making progress. Zipping over Nebraska, he tore out the metal cover of the wiring, and was happily beginning to get through the wires themselves when the plane began wobbling left to right and back. He would be through and out very soon. He could hear the wind whistling along on the other side of the metal skin of the aircraft. He’d have himself out in just a few more minutes. And then the plane landed, the cargo bay door opened and there he was. Hey, look at me! And then he jumped down and ran around for a while, celebrating. •

allow for at least some repayment. In fact, a new insurance company to be formed shortly is likely to buy the list. However, because many patients have already found new insurance, the once 25,000-member list is less likely to command a price than it could have some time ago, perhaps had MDNY addressed the problems sooner and in a more orderly way. Yet, some patients do remain enrolled — and for now, they remain in a peculiar limbo. Patients were informed in November that the company would go out of business in May. (Insurance companies must provide six month’s notice before canceling insurance.) Those who have not arranged for new insurance now find themselves paying premiums to a company that has insufficient assets to pay participating doctors. Meanwhile, those doctors no longer want to accept MDNY insurance, and many are going through a process of getting out of their contractual obligation to accept the insurance. Thus, many patients with MDNY insurance now must pay their doctors out of pocket. To make

matters worse, if they wait too long to acquire replacement insurance, they may not be eligible for automatic coverage of pre-existing conditions. The unanswered question is how MDNY came to this. Was the business mismanaged, perhaps due to something as innocent as lack of sophistication in the complex insurance field? Was the business model flawed from the start? Or, more worrisome, did the business managers engage in some sort of fraud to keep the business running, bilking doctors along the way? Normally, business owners and managers cannot be held financially responsible to customers for a business’s failure brought about by market conditions or even incompetence, but fraud is a different animal. Perhaps it will require a lawsuit to bring all of the facts into the open, so for now the story does not so much end as pause. Due to problems at MDNY, as of January 3 LIMC will no longer accept MDNY as a participating insurance carrier. If your insurance is MDNY, you will only be seen on self-pay basis.

Jeff calls this “valet storage,” because, on demand, your boat is placed safely into the water, or carefully taken out and stored. The company also sells both new and preowned boats, specializing in Cobalts (up to 46’), Pursuits (up to 37’) and Southports (up to 30’). The top end boat they offer, fully loaded, costs $1.1 million. Strong’s also sells outboard motors including Yamaha and Mercury, as well as inboard motors such as Mercruiser, Volvo and the legendary Cummins Diesel. Strong’s Marine also specializes in water ski sales and products, often flying in the best skiers in the world for demonstrations and exhibitions. After adding a location in Southampton, Jeff said he now has 52 full-time employees, each of whom undergo an annual two-week retraining and continuing education class. Jeff also explained that the business has an affiliation in Flanders run by Carolyn and Vinny. But his biggest surprise has been the growth and vitality of the Internet boat sales business. “The internet sales blow me away,” he said. Used boats have been sold as far away as Croatia, Mexico and Poland. Jeff estimates that since 1965 the company has sold over 3,500 boats. The website,, also provides information about sailing classes, captain courses and rental information and sale items. But the trademark of


doing business with Strong’s Marine is what Jeff calls the commitment to high-end full service. “We do things we weren’t even asked to fix when we see they need attention,” he explained. Jeff has come a long way from holding the nightlight and handing tools to his dad as he worked into the wee hours to get a boat ready by dawn. Now he and his wife Re, whom he calls his inspiration and best friend, run the show with their two sons, Jay and Ryan, the fourth generation of Strong’s. Jay, a graduate of Babson College in Boston, is the sales manager and Ryan, who just recently completed his studies at Roger Williams in Rhode Island, has entered into the operations. In addition to his children, Jeff’s sister Nancy is very active, having currently established a Lady Fins Boat Club. Jeff is proud of the many honors and cita-

tions Strong’s Marine has earned due to their commitment to excellence. It’s rated in the top 20 of the 3,500 nationwide boat dealers. Strong’s Marine is also a member of the Cobalt Top 20 group, allowing them to provide in depth information to customers. According to Jeff, the awards and citations are all a result of his grandfather’s original goal. “We’re a family oriented business with world-class service,” he said. “Customer satisfaction is what moves us. We have always paid attention to every detail.” After World War II when Stuart Strong was sailing back from his Naval service in the Pacific, he dreamed of a better world — a better life for his future family. That dream was realized, not only for generations of Strong’s but also for the many customers they have served.

that showed this outside second floor wall should be set back one foot ten inches from the first, he continued framing it straight up. The result was that this upstairs bedroom was 40 square feet bigger than the approved plans called for, which made the whole house 40 square feet bigger than the plans called for. Indeed, this error is apparently catastrophic. Because of the small lot size, the maximum number of square feet that was allowable for the entire house was 1,500 and the plans called for them using every last one of these feet. This error meant that the house was now 1,540 square feet. It was too big for its lot. Furthermore, on a lot of this small size, the maximum number of square feet allowed for ground coverage on the property also just happened to be 1,500. And although the wall on the second floor did not affect this, the additional step at ground level, the extra tiny bit of inches going all the way around and the addition of some heavy stone pavers leading up to the entry doors and set right on the ground now meant that the total footprint was 1,590 square feet. It was time for the members of the board, together with the general public in attendance, to have a go at Roaman. “Why did you do this?” somebody asked. “I was not aware that the house was built to just barely fit inside the legal limits.” “You don’t know East Hampton,” somebody said. “I was more concerned that I might break the pyramid law (the invisible line forming a pyramid that goes up at an angle and inside of which all the structure must be enclosed). I mean, that’s the hot button.”

“The Village does not have a pyramid law,” the chairman, Andrew Goldstein, said. Roaman had brought an attorney, Stuyvesant Wainwright, to help him out at the hearing. Wainwright said that really this was just one mistake, with the framing along one wall on the second floor not set back. “I think I’m being charitable in saying that this is mistake upon mistake upon mistake,” Goldstein said. “The house looms.” A letter to the board from Mayor Rickenbacker, who lives with his wife a few doors down on Maidstone Avenue, was read aloud. “The language and intent of the zoning code of the Village must be upheld and not subject to abrogation by others for personal interpretation, interest or gain,” the Mayor wrote. “At the end of the day, there are so many areas of mistakes that there have to be some corrective measures,” said Board Member Larry Hillel. A local resident, Mary Ella Moeller, spoke about the situation. “If you are building something in the Village, it’s your responsibility to know what Village laws are, and this man obviously took advantage of it,” she said. “If he thinks he’s going to get away with it, it would be a shame.” Goldstein ended by saying that Roaman should go back home and make new plans to show how he could mitigate the situation, which was quite clearly caused by himself. As I said, billionaire or blue-collar worker, they all meet the same justice when they go before the local Zoning Boards of Appeals. Just try it yourself. •

arbors do not require building permits. Nobody was buying it. Those who spoke said it was a building. When asked by the chairman if there was anyone on the board who felt it was a fence or some other legal non-building, there was no answer. A final vote on this matter will take place on March 28 at 11 a.m. at the Village Emergency Service Building on Cedar Street in East Hampton. The other matter that the East Hampton Village Zoning Board considered last Friday morning was that of some perceived zoning violations on a house that is still under construction on a narrow street in a more modest part of the Village. The house being built is on Maidstone Avenue, a harrow street one block long with about 15 houses on it, all in a row. It sits on a 1/8th of an acre building site, replacing an older and more worn down house, and the plans call for it to only exceed the minimum size for a legal house in the community by 300 square feet. The builder, who is new to town and works as a carpenter, is Bradford Roaman. And this was the first house he had ever general contracted. He is building it for his grandmother. According to the building inspector, Lawrence, the same building inspector who ruled on the pergola over on West End Avenue, this house is being built 7/8ths of an inch closer to the side yard property line than allowed and 1 3/4 inches too close to the front yard property line than allowed. Where the plans show that there should be two steps going down from a back door to the yard, they have built three. And worst of all, when Roaman’s framer got to the second floor, instead of following the plans

way car of each train is a big hit among A listers. The experiment to try out an alternate fuel may have resulted in some overheating of train engines and a few blown pistons, but otherwise went pretty well, I think. Our regular straphangers, who commute by the thousands in the rear cars every day may be complaining a bit about the loss of their front car and inability to get past the velvet rope even though they have the proper number of Euros. To them I say, you’ve still got the joy of rubbing shoulders, maybe not the shoulders you might like to rub against, but, well, it was just a matter of speaking, there you are, in the cars right behind some of the most important shoulders in the world and that in and of itself is a blessing. As for the Spielberg Drop, which my brother Biff built so badly — it was really not his fault, it was the architectural specs — by digging the two ends toward the middle and then have them not meet up, it has been an absolute dream for us. After the $10 million subway spur had to be abandoned just one week after its opening by order of the US Department of Transportation,

which claimed that the big drop was unacceptable, he and I bought it for the bargain basement $500,000, and now look at it. Along with Splish Splash in Wading River, the Riverhead Mountain Ski Resort now coming to fruition in Calverton and the Atlantis Aquarium in Riverhead, we’ve now taken our special place in the annals of East End amusements. And the money is rolling in. Hooray for free enterprise. Lemons to lemonade. As I did say last week, I can still perform the duties of being Commissioner here for the Hampton Subway. It’s my day job. My night job is with the Spielberg Drop where I am in attendance for the 6 p.m. to midnight shift, if you’d like to come by to shake my hand. And my hat is off to the Lone Sharks for writing “Doing the Spielberg Drop” and then figuring out those jerky moves to the dance accompanying it. I hear that Vivian and the Merrymakers are coming up with something too. And wasn’t that a wonderful fundraising party for Guild Hall at the Rainbow Room on Monday night? •

day begins with yoga, how there is lots of oneon-one and group activities and how no alcohol or drugs will be tolerated. There will be no Medicare or medical cards accepted, which will mean that he doesn’t need a license from the State of New York to run this facility as a public intake. The cost of a stay at Safe Harbor will be about $35,000 a month. He tries in his brochure to define some of the upsides of having this facility on the Island. Regarding the Ram’s Head Inn, he describes it as a sort of out of control party hotel with thousands of people carousing on the lawns, something that will be happily put a stop to by the re-creation of the place as Safe Harbor Retreat at Shelter Island. The Ram’s Head Inn has just 22 rooms with accommodations for 44 people. It is the center of activities for the social set, where weddings, coming out parties, cotillions and bar mitzvahs have been held since 1924. The Inn currently hosts about ten weddings a year on the property. According to James and Linda Eklund, who will retain ownership of the property, there will certainly be no new buildings constructed on the property without their approval. Would it have a fence around it? It is illegal to fence a rehab.

People can’t legally be held in a rehab facility. The clients would be free to walk off or bike off or row off. Though, by rehab rules, they are “discharged” and not welcomed back if they walk off. Of course, there is an upside. And it is money. This facility, if it succeeds in what it says it will do, will bring into Shelter Island probably 30 jobs as cooks, security people, janitors, waiters and attendants. It will probably gross about $10 million a year, some of which will surely stick to the outstretched hands of the Islanders. What you won’t get, and this is in this literature sent out, is paparazzi and TV interview trailers, signs, promotional activities, helicopters circling about high overhead, signs and swooning crowds of people waiting to get a glimpse of the likes of Lindsey Lohan and Britney Spears. The Safe Harbor Retreat won’t permit it. (How about that!) I think it will come down to this — if you like Shelter Island the way it is and want to keep it going in that direction, you’ll oppose this. If you have a fear of the unknown, you will oppose this. If you like money and feel the inrush of yearround money will shine the place up and send it off into a better direction, you will be in favor of it. •

The car then bobs to the surface, rights itself and continues on uneventfully for another ten minutes to its conclusion. At the stand at the underground end of the ride, patrons can buy pictures of themselves to see what they look liked as they survived the Spielberg Drop.

When the ride is over, subway cars decked out to look like ambulances take the patrons on the parallel track back up the long climb to the Lobster Inn Station to their parked cars. “What a treat,” said Mayor Mark Epley of Southampton Village as he came out at the end of the ride at the parking lot across from the Lobster Inn with his kids.

Dan’s North Fork OVER


with Lenn Thompson

Jazz, Winemaker Goings and LIMA News Long Island Winterfest winds down this weekend after a month of events that have been, according to Bob Palmer of Palmer Vineyards, “An unqualified success.” Winterfest, a three-year old annual event meant to attract people to North Fork wine country in the off season, has struck a chord because of this year’s theme of “Jazz on the Vine.” 2008’s festival has had a huge positive influence on the region. According to Palmer, “Not only did it bring increased business to the winery but it brought out people who had not been out here before and will, I hope, return again.” Winter weekends can be slow at North Fork tasting rooms, but the jazz has been a great draw. Hal Ginsburg from Clovis Point Wines has hosted two concerts. “The music was great and the crowds were great so it was definitely a success,” he said. “And we did significantly more business than on a typical weekend in the winter.” There are ten more concerts this weekend. (For a complete list, visit Spring is a season of rebirth, a time to start over, and two local wineries will be starting spring with new winemakers. John Levenberg, who joined Bedell Cellars a couple years ago after stints at

some top California producers, has left Bedell. Bedell has not commented on the matter much beyond confirming the move. They will, however, continue with assistant winemaker Kelly Urbanik, founding winemaker Kip Bedell and Pascal Marty,

Consulting Oenologist making the wines. Earlier this week the Long Island Merlot Alliance (LIMA) announced the appointment of Len Dest as Executive Director. Dest has been tasked with expanding research, marketing and promotion—all to establish and enhance Long Island’s reputation as America’s premier region for merlot. Dest joins LIMA from Duckwood Advisors, LLC a professional management and marketing consulting company based in the Greater NY area. LIMA has been relatively quiet since its formation in late 2005, but that’s not because the organization hasn’t been doing lots of work behind the scenes. Last summer, they sponsored an intern, Christopher Grassotti, a student in the Masters degree program in viticulture and enology at Ecole Nationale Supéérieur Agronomique in Montpellier, France. Grassotti worked with LIMA members and Alice Wise at Cornell University with the hopes of defining the dominant and strongly identifiable aroma profiles of Long Island merlot and identifying the differences found in other quality wine regions. The group’s first co-produced wine, the 2004 Merliance, has sold out of most outlets, but LIMA expects to release the 2005 vintage this spring. Visit for more information about the group and its goals.

Jean Marie Pierson’s Book Signing Held At Lenz Winery Was A Tremendous Success

Jean Marie Pierson

By David Lion Rattiner It was an absolutely wonderful evening at Lenz Winery in Peconic. The vineyard itself is stunning, with an amazing tasting room that captures that magical balance between man and nature that the North Fork is famous for. But this wasn’t just a visit to the winery, this was the opportunity to meet and greet author Jean Marie Pierson, whose book “No Good Girls” is selling in bookstores all over the country. The party had the true essence of the North Fork Community. Children dressed up in little suits were running around eating cheese, as friends and fans all

waited in line to purchase a copy of “No Good Girls” or to get a glass of Lenz’s wide selection of wines, which of course, were all on display at this sensational gathering. The support for artists and writers on the North Fork is always encouraging, and that night was extra special because of the remarkable success of Jean Marie Pierson, one of Southold’s daughters. Pierson’s recent writing success is certainly worth a celebration, and the entire North Fork community showed up at Lenz to show support for her. Many of them remember her from when she used to work at Lenz Winery, while others knew her from grade

school, and others knew her from Penn State University, where Ms. Pierson graduated. Today Ms. Pierson lives in Manhattan, which was the big inspiration behind her debut novel. This writer has only been through the first few pages, but I can you tell you from what I have read so far, this book is laugh out loud funny. Stay tuned for a full book review in Dan’s Papers. Without any doubt, the true community vibe, the passion for the arts, and the best tasting wine in the world all were as clear as day at this book event. It’s just what it really is all about on the North Fork.

DAN'S PAPERS, March 7, 2008 Page 38

Dan’s North Fork “Vermont Coziness on the North Fork” is their motto, and coziness is a very apt way to describe this charming, warm, but unpretentious restaurant that is now celebrating its fifteenth anniversary in total and its ninth under the ownership of Jonathan and Rene Perkins. The blazing fireplace in the entrance hall welcomes you and this feeling is accentuated by the very personable and well-trained staff. One of the reasons for the continuing success of the Cooperage Inn, apart from consistently good food, comes from their willingness to adapt to the needs of their clientele and to offer a variety of events to attract both old and new patrons. Recently they modified their menu to offer both small plates and large plates. Size is always relative and you have to understand that normal portions here are very substantial by any standard, so small here does not equate to the

We started our evening with an excellent Caribbean Cosmopolitan from their extensive cocktail list and a glass of typically crisp clean Chardonnay from Lenz, which was absolutely wonderful. A cold wet night called out for a bowl of soup, and the lentil soup was thick, fragrant and was served with an excellent portion of pulled pork. The pork combined with some of their excellent home baked bread could almost make a meal in itself, but

restraint was called for! Next, we shared one of their oversized salads, featuring sesame-crusted calamari with a mustard soy vinaigrette. This was a superb blend of tastes, textures and temperatures that produced a great salad that surely could have sufficed to feed three or four as part of a meal. The crisp calamari melted in the mouth, the salad greens were varied and very fresh tasting and overall, we rated this as a truly exceptional salad and one to highly recommend. For our main courses, Stella chose one of the house

signature dishes, chicken Tuscano, with proscuitto, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts and spinach in a port wine demi-glaze and melted fresh mozzarella. While I opted for one of the new ‘small plates’ consisting of two jumbo shrimp filled with crab and shrimp stuffing and scampi garlic butter. Both dishes, though very different, were well cooked and full of deep, rich tastes. Each was served with a medley of correctly al dente broccoli, red pepper and zucchini and we also tried a side of some very addictive fries. The special dessert of the evening sounded enticing. Bartlett pear upside down cake with house made ginger ice cream, crème anglaise and caramel sauce with seasonal berries was as good as it reads. Again, we were glad that we shared because it was a really good sized portion, and with a cup of strong espresso and the indulgence of a glass of Sambuca (with the traditional three coffee beans to wish wealth, health and happiness) to keep out the winter chills, it was a perfect end to a very enjoyable meal in very pleasant surroundings. Soft, suitably romantic music played in the background during the evening. Everything here is well thought out to make diners comfortable and relaxed and this extends even to the pricing, which is remarkably reasonable. Oversized salads range from $12 to $15; signature dishes are from $22; the small plates run from $16 to $22 for a 10oz house aged shell steak, and the large plates are from $42 to $62 for a mammoth seafood crockpot containing shrimp, scallops, mussels, catch of the day and lobster. Many people have become regulars at the Friday night buffet table, which offers a very varied selection of hot and cold dishes and desserts for $25. Future special events include their participating in the upcoming Hamptons Restaurant Week, scheduled for March 30th until June the 4th. Also on Sunday April 20th at 5.00 p.m. a murder dinner theatre will take place in the restaurant, and you are invited to participate as well as enjoy a special full three-course dinner. The cost of the evening is $49.95 - I am not sure if you get a full refund if you turn out to be the victim! Details of all of these events can be obtained by calling the restaurant. This is a great restaurant for casual spur of the moment dining, special celebrations, or those wonderful romantic ‘diners a deux.’ The kitchen, under Executive Chef Michael Hegeman and his talented sous chefs John Brisciani, Kevin Lueck and John Bauer, maintains a very high standard of quality and consistency. – Roy Bradbrook

Wooden Ships on the Water, Sailing Free and Easy From AMFs to Zodiacs, the shores of the Hamptons are littered with boats and while most of these seafaring vessels are pumped out of factories from fiberglass molds, there are a select few, beautiful wooden ships sailing among them. These boats are a reminder of the stunning craftsmanship of a bygone time. Like many trades that have been replaced by machines, shipbuilding was a major industry on the east coast. But as whaling went out of fashion and pleasure boats evolved into powerboats, wood was replaced by polymer and epoxies. Sure these boats are considered faster, safer and more hydrodynamic, but what about the simple magnificence of wood grain? Of something built by hand? Of something that was unique? With so much of the East End looking for the newest things, it’s a good thing that some Hamptons residents have their feet planted in tradition. The East End Classic Boat Society (EECBS) started in the 1990s at an abandoned lobster pound at the end of Gann Road on Three Mile Harbor, when a few men came together and began restoring wooden boats. The property was eventually taken over by the East Hampton Town Marine Patrol and they were forced out. In 1999, the EECBS became an incorporated non-profit organization and like a ship in a storm, found safe harbor wherever they could. Boats were built in the yards of members, on the lawn of the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum and at the Marine Museum on Bluff Road in Amagansett. About three years ago, acknowledging the merit of the EECBS, the Historic Society of East Hampton offered property adjacent from the Marine Museum to

Nautical Gadget Guide As any James Bond wannabe can attest, a tiny motorboat can feel like an eighty-foot yacht so long as the right accessories are on board. This year’s winter boat shows have debuted a fleet of innovative new devices, all worthy of the “Q Branch” and all musthaves for the 2008 boating season. So whether you’re an avid angler, a weekend cruiser or a day-tripper, here are the top ten gadgets that are making waves from the Atlantic Ocean to the Peconic Bay. “Now pay attention, 007.” Davis Inflatable Key Buoy: Misplacing your keys is bad enough at home, but when you drop them into the water, it’s safe to say they’re not turning up…unless you have Davis’ inflatable key buoy. When the keychain makes contact with the water, the ring releases a self-inflating air tube that shoots your keys to the surface. $6.99, Gill Floatable Sunglasses: Admiring the beautiful Long Island Sound from a pair of water skis isn’t quite as exciting when the blazing sun blinds you. Fortunately, Gill makes a line of polarized lenses that offer full UVA/UVB protection and float in water, so you only lose your pride in the event of a nasty wipeout. $40-$60, Coleman Rechargeable Blender: If you like pina coladas and you have half a brain, make sure to include Coleman’s new rechargeable blender on your next booze cruise. This battery-operated blender is powerful enough to chop through

blocks of ice to make the perfect frozen beverages and with rubber grips, even the bumpiest of rides remain spill-free. $99, iCom M34 Floating VHF Radio: Keep your VHF radio out of Davey Jones’ Locker with this innovative new floating handheld. With large push buttons, a wide LCD screen and a waterproof, easy-to-grip hourglass design, the M34 allows you to say “Breaker-breaker” or more importantly, “Mayday-mayday,” anytime, anywhere. $179, Mustang’s Inflatable PFD with HIT: Everybody knows safety comes first, but does it always have to come with gawky padding and awkward tan lines? Fortunately, with Mustang’s line of inflatable Personal Floatation Devices, you’ll have maximum mobility and minimal coverage. The vests inflate automatically when submerged in water or manually by pulling on the yellow tab and even come in a limited edition hot pink. $200-$300, Olympus Stylus 850SW: Accidents happen, but they no longer have to happen to your camera thanks to the virtually indestructible Olympus Stylus 850SW. This stylish digital camera is shockproof, freeze proof and waterproof to ten feet, so you can feel good about capturing your memories on board, overboard and under water. $299.99, SONY Xplod CDX-HS70MW: Nothing beats the sound of the sea, except for the

sound of your favorite tunes on the Sony Xplod. Combine this splash proof, UV and salt resistant CD Receiver/satellite radio/mp3 player with a set of Sony’s waterproof speakers, and you’ll have enough juice to disturb the neighbors – fortunately, there aren’t any. $299, Walker Bay’s Airis Inflatable Kayak: Go where no boat has gone before with Walker Bay’s inflatable Kayaks, which give you access to shallow coves your craft can’t enter. The Airis Kayaks are tear and abrasion resistant, quick to inflate, simple to use and so portable, you can toss one on your back and walk it home. $750-$1250, Revere’s Costal Compact Life Raft: Targeting coastal boaters and roughly the size of a small valise, the Coastal Compact life raft has more than just a clever name. These award-winning rafts come in two and four person sizes, weigh only fifteen pounds packed, and are extremely stable in rough sea conditions. $950, Furuno’s NAVNET 3D The Cadillac of GPS devices, Furuno’s new Navnet 3D has incorporated the latest Time Zero technology to eliminate any delays along your route. With the easy to use LCD touch screen, you can chart your progress, evaluate your depth, check the weather, even search for fish, all with a simple lift of your finger. $2,399.99, – Alexandra Calamari

DAN'S PAPERS, March 7, 2008 Page 41

Ready, Set, Sail It’s only March, but for die-hard boaters it’s never too early to start preparing for the season – from the practical stuff to the totally unnecessary but fun gadgets. Of course, the most important thing you can do before getting your sailboat in the water is to inspect your sails for any damage. Doing this isn’t rocket science, but is often overlooked by sailors who are anxious to get new rigging or painting done. The best way to inspect your sails is to simply spread them out on the floor inside your home. If you can’t find ample space in your home for all the sails, then lay them out individually in a systematic fashion. Don’t put your sails on grass or concrete. Grass can stain and concrete can tear them, so it’s best to do this process indoors. When inspecting your sails, look for small tears as well as undesirable stains that can come from just about anything. The smaller the tear, the smaller the cost of repair. However, if it goes unnoticed, the tear will undoubtedly grow bigger and become more expensive. Up next, at least for this sailor, is to make sure the engine is in order. If you have your engine winterized at a marina, let them know that you are getting ready to put your boat in the water. It is always good to be on the top of the list when it comes to the countless number of engines that a workshop has to maintain. Now is also the time to browse through the annual catalog from West Marine to order anything on your boat that needs replacing. Don’t let your cracked compass go unchecked – West Marine has got you covered. If you don’t want to handle this responsibil-

ity yourself, ask your marina manager if he or she can offer any advice for outdated parts you may have overlooked. For some, bottom painting is a bi-annual process. But don’t let this be you. Having a fresh coat of paint on the bottom of your sailboat is important for so many reasons, and should be taken seriously. Unless you have somebody with experience to guide you, do not do this on your own. Boat paint is extremely unhealthy for you if it makes contact with your skin. Inhaling the vapors is always unhealthy. Hiring a professional to do this is best, but if you are anxious to bond with your boat in this way, be sure to get a plastic suit, with rubber gloves and a mask. I’m also a huge fan of having a professional clean my boat so that it feels brand new. Again, you can do this on your own, but professionals with large and tall rod brushes will get every nook that you might miss with your dish sponge. As far as new gadgets, get the ones that you want now so you have them on your first sail – and you’ll find lower prices at this time of year. I love night vision binoculars because of the large amount of night sailing I did last summer. You can pick up a decent pair for about $600. You can also get a scope for around $300, but the scopes are pretty boring if you ask me. I’d recommend Night Owl’s NOXB3 with night vision and infrared to have on board when

moonlight just isn’t cutting it. I also like the new folding solar panels and polycrystalline solar panels from Sharp – not because they are environmentally friendly, but they are practical to trickle charge your battery while your boat is docked. Having a healthy battery ensures that your engine will start, but that your lights, both interior and exterior will work, as well as your sound system. Which brings me to the next gadget on my wish list. There is nothing quite like having classical music or a great Broadway score blasting as you unfurl your sail out onto the open sea. My personal favorite is Les Miserables, but it would be a hell of a lot more fun if I could do it through a real sound system instead of my twenty-dollar portable iPod speakers. Hooking up a sound system on your boat really isn’t a big deal – you just have to get the right products. My favorite brands are Bose speakers because a Brown engineering student once told me that they are the best. I’d say his word is better then mine. You can get a nice pair of Bose 151 SE Environmental Speakers or a pair of Bose flush mount speakers. Run a wire into an amplifier, another into a subwoofer and another into a stereo receiver and you have yourself one sweet system for your sailboat. Might be time to bust out the Guns N’ Roses. – David Lion Rattiner

Ticker Shock RED WINE IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEART! JUST MAKE SURE TO REMOVE THE PRICE TAG FIRST. By Christopher S. Miller Whether you subscribe to the idea that the United States’ economy is headed for or already in a recession or not, the fact is the dollar currently buys only about 0.67 Euro, and here we are talking about European wines! Because of this, Long Island wines will become really great bargains, and some already are. As for Bordeaux and other imported wines, we’re in for some interesting times. So let the hunt begin for value, wherever we can find it. My recent experiences with the price escalation of European wines – 145 percent in some cases – have been shocking, especially in Bordeaux 2005 and 2006 (ouch!), Burgundy 2006 (be still my heart) and in-the-pipeline Brunello and Barolo 2003 (the Italians really understand how to use a weak dollar and market pressure to their favor). Even 2004 Bordeaux is inching up in price for some of the prestige Chateaux, such as Lafite-Rothschild and Carruades de Lafite (Lafite’s second label). The 2004 Chateau Lafite was released as a “future� in Spring/Summer of 2005 at prices in the $150 range, while the second label, Carruades, sold at a future price of about $35 a bottle. Any guesses how much

these two are selling for now? The Chateau Lafite is selling in the $400 range and as high as $650 for one bottle only. Now let’s compare the 2004 to the 2005 and 2006 vintages. The 2005 half bottle of Ch. Lafite (yes, half) is selling for $843.99 and the full for $1600 at Zachy’s. The 2005 Carruades de Lafite is just plain

the 2006 price increase by 300 percent in the next two years as the 2004 did? I doubt it, but I don’t think many people expected to see Carruades de Lafite selling for $150 a bottle after being on the market for less than two years either. The issues of value and price concerning wines from Burgundy and Italy are not as stark, but neither are they as lucrative in the resale market. It is a complex market, and there are a few niche areas where great Burgundies escalate in value and, as with all wines, the critic’s scores and opinions are of great influence. But with Burgundy and Italy there is not one critic whose opinion and scores are as nationally and internationally revered as those of Robert Parker Jr.’s are for Bordeaux. For Burgundy, the one critic that many industry professionals listen to is Allen Meadows, producer of the Burghound newsletter, but his is not exactly a household name. As a result, despite his expertise, his high scoring wines don’t perform in the market as well as a Burgundy scored highly by David Schildknecht. Who, you ask? Mr. Schildknecht is a critic that works for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (and covers several regions in addition to Burgundy) so he is associated with Robert Parker and hence gets more readership than Allen Meadows,

My recent experiences with the price escalation of European wines have been shocking, especially in Bordeaux 2005-2006 (ouch!) and Burgundy 2006 (be still my heart). bizarre, selling for between $82 and $150 a bottle. While the Carruades is good, I would rather pay $85$90 for 2004 Cos d’Estournel, the great second growth that is just across the street from Lafite. When it comes to 2006, the futures price for Chateau Lafite ranges from $550 a bottle to close to $800. So the question for those speculators out there is, will

The Third Annual Great Bordeux-Style Wine Tasting WHAT WE’VE LEARNED - 42 WINES, 4 LOCAL WINEMAKERS AND 3 YEARS - LATER

Photo by S.W. Simm

By Susan Whitney Simm Back in 2005, David and I clearly had tradition in mind when we held what we optimistically called our First Annual Great BordeauxStyle Wine Tasting. The goal was to see how Long Island’s fledgling wine region compares to those of the New and Old Worlds. What we did not have clearly in mind was how to go about this. Despite the lack of clarity, our first tasting, though a bit random, was nonetheless a revelation. Whether it would evolve into tradition was another question. What we did… Decanted and poured blind nineteen blends from France, Long Island, California, Australia and Spain. The lineup was somewhat haphazard, with a 1997 Chateau Latour (a mediocre vintage from a great Pauillac chateau – it was rated a whopping ten points lower than the 1996 by Robert Parker) rubbing shoulders with a 2001 Opus One from Napa. What were we thinking these two could possibly have in common? As it turned out, aside from both being wine, not much. What we learned …that nineteen is about ten wines too many, especially as it is difficult to get tasters to spit (the examples set by guest winemakers Eric Fry of Lenz and Stan Schumacher, then of Borghese, notwithstanding)…that if you taste wine in a hot summer month, central air conditioning, if you’re not in a cool cellar, goes a long way…that winemakers cannot always pick their own wines out of a lineup. (This illustrates just how difficult it is to taste blind, even for the pros.) But perhaps most importantly, we learned that it’s unreasonable, if not moronic, to put Right (Merlotdominated) and Left Bank (Cabernetdominated) style blends head-to-head in what wine writer Hugh Johnson would clearly call a “combat” situation. The mightier – in this case bigger, higher alcohol, warmer climate wines – will almost always win. They simply stand out more. “There is no avoiding… ‘taster’s palate,’ a seemingly inevitable drift towards the more concentrated wines in any line-up,” writes Johnson. It’s not that these wines are necessarily superior, and certainly not that they go better with food. “Who is to say how a wine tasted with other wines will perform solo at table?” And so first place went to… Opus One. Of course. But while some results were predictable, others were not. In a lineup that included a 2000 Ch. Canon (St. Emilion) and a 2001 Ch. Lynch-Bages (Paulliac) along with ten Long Island wines, three locals captured spots in the top six – the 2000 Macari Alexandra, the 2001 Wolffer Estate Premier Cru, and the 2000 Lenz “Old Vines” Merlot, respectively – proving, in the tasting, that Long Island could indeed compete despite David’s and my rather feebly constructed (though undeniably international) world stage. Fast forward to late summer 2006. Invitations go out for the Second Annual Great Bordeaux-Style Wine Tasting. Guest winemakers include Roman Roth of Grapes of Roth (he is also winemaker at Wolffer Estate) and Eric Fry of Lenz. The Wine Advocate, Mr. Parker’s newsletter, has recently pub-

lished the results of taster David Schildnecht’s early spring visit to Long Island in which numerous wines scored 90 points or better (including Roman Roth’s 92-point private label 2002 Grapes of Roth, which is in the lineup). Everyone is talking about “Parker ratings.” We are confident and smarter, though carefully short of smug. And we are much more well-prepared. We are also, like everyone else in the Long Island wine region, suddenly paying a lot of attention to numbers. We divide thirteen wines (still a few too many), which now exclude Spain and include only one from

ond place went to the ’02 Grapes of Roth and third to the ’02 Paumanok Assemblage.) Surprising, Sort Of… The supposedly perfect 100-point 2000 La Mission Haut-Brion came in next to last in the Right Bank race. This was probably because it is not yet mature – Parker recommends drinking after 2011. (Technically La Mission is Left Bank, but the 2000 is so atypically Merlot-dominant that it went in the Right Bank flight). Also a bit surprising was second and third place in the Left Bank going to the 2002 Paumanok Grand Vintage Cab Sauvignon (rated 90) and the Lenz 2001 Estate Cab Sauvignon (88), outdistancing renowned Bordeaux First-Growth 2001 Ch. Margaux (93). Comments from the group included compliments on the Merlot lineup – many considered it a close contest and a fair one. The Left Bank proved more troublesome. Though Long Island stood its ground, it is far more difficult for the region to ripen Cabernet Sauvignon and a greater, inevitable disparity was found in the lineup. The two winemakers also immediately ID’d the Aussie, calling it “flabby” and “hot.” These comments prompted us to take a whole new approach last fall as we planned the Third Annual Great Bordeaux-Style Wine Tasting. Held in November (we finally learned our lesson about the heat of summer) we focused exclusively on the Right Bank, entering only ten Merlot-dominant wines in the tasting. All wines, in an effort to create an evermore-level playing field, were from the 2001 vintage. Our guest winemaker was again Roman Roth, with his wife Dushy, along with guest expert/educator (and senior writer for this section) Christopher Miller with his wife Melissa, a rep for the prestigious distributor Winebow. Though far more well-known for Cab Sauvignon than for Merlot, two entries, a 2001 Pahlmeyer Merlot (91), and a 2001 Pride Mountain Vineyards Merlot Vintner’s Select Mountaintop (97) made from 100-percent Merlot, came from Napa and Sonoma, respectively. France was represented by a 2001 Cheval Blanc (93), and once again the 2001 Ch. Pavie (96), both from St. Emilion. The remaining six wines came from Long Island. Here are the results. The Little News About Big Chateaux The Chateau Pavie, a great Premier Grand Cru Classe Bordeaux that retails for about $150, took second place. It was described by Mr. Roth as “classic, big, with layers of sweet tannins.” A favorite in 2006’s tasting, it is not surprising that this wine, with its relatively low Merlot percentage compared to most St. Emilions, once again stood out. The Cheval Blanc (retails for $300-400), another outstanding Premier Grand Cru Classe, came in third. It is a wine of great finesse, and would doubtless pair better with food rather than other wines. “Brooding and elegant,” commented Mr. Miller.

The biggest news of the Third Annual Great Bordeaux-Style Wine Tasting is the winner. This outstanding local wine retails for only $23 at the winery...

Australia and two from northern California, into Left and Right Bank-style flights. The vintages range more closely, from 2000-2002 (with one rogue local ’04). There are seven local entries amid the baker’s dozen, and all but two are rated 90 or higher by Mr. Parker (it’s not that we consider Parker to be the last word, but here his ratings served as a benchmark for the lineup). Following are the results. Not Surprising For reasons stated above, the 2002 Cardinale Proprietary Red (California) took first honors for the Left Bank category. But to be fair, this Pauillacstyled red is an excellent effort from the West Coast. The top ranked Merlot was the 2001 Ch. Pavie (St. Emilion), which is the most Left Bank-like of the Right Banks with only 70 percent Merlot, 20 percent Cab Franc and 10 percent Cab Sauvignon. Long Island also scored well in the Merlot department: sec-

who only rates Burgundy. Got it? Yeah, I’m having trouble with it, too. For instance, Jean Grivot and Anne Francoise Gros were rated similarly by Mr. Meadows (93-96 and 92-94, respectively), while Grivot was rated by Mr. Schildknecht (96-97) and the Gros was not rated at all. The resulting prices: Grivot Richebourg sells for $1195, at a minimum, and the AF Gros goes for about $500. So what’s a point or two between friends and neighbors (Richebourg vineyard is less than 20 acres)? Oh, about $500. On this side of the pond you’ll find some excellent values on Long Island. I’m very excited about the

outlook for the 2007 vintage here along with the currently available 2005. One 2005 wine to look for is the Bedell Merlot, which is sold out at the winery but still available at a few New York stores, including Sherry-Lehmann, for $18.95. Out here most stores have sold out and I have recommended some of my clients and friends replace it with the 2005 Corey Creek Cabernet Franc that sells for $23, or the 2005 Paumanok Festival Red ($15), both available at Hamptons Wine Shoppe in Westhampton. So what’s all this mean for the wine consumer? My thoughts are these. Wandering through a wine store or wine list without some guidance or knowledge can

result in many more costly mistakes than in the past. But there will also be some bargains as older wines will sometimes be less expensive than newer wines that need to be aged a bit. Some education on these matters can go a long way. The price of taking most wine courses will quickly offset the potential of purchasing $25-plus wines that are disappointing. As for our local wines, for me there is finally potential for them to stand out as values as long as the producers don’t catch the California prestige decease. What do I mean by this? Say a producer in Napa or Sonoma makes a very good Cabernet Sauvignon. Then they look at the price of Lafite or Latour and say, heck, if those are selling for $1000 a bottle, why can’t I charge $200-$300 for mine! So much for value.

The Big News For Long Island On the West Coast, the Pride Mountain (about $125, but very hard to come by) tied for fourth place with the local Jamesport Merlot (sold out at the winery, but priced about $30 when available), though it would be hard to imagine two wines that have less in common besides price differential. Mr. Miller, who called the big Cali “a beastly wine,” likened the far more elegant Jamesport to a “petite Bordeaux Chateau.” But the biggest news of the Third Annual Great Bordeaux-Style Wine Tasting was the winner: the Lenz Estate Merlot. This outstanding wine, 95percent Merlot and 5-percent Cab Franc, retails for $23 at the winery, making it the least expensive entry in a very impressive lineup, and putting an end to the myth that Long Island wines are “all” overpriced. Mr. Roth called it “lush, elegant and layered” with “beautiful acidity,” which is a Lenz hallmark. Mr. Miller praised its “very long” finish. In conclusion, we feel that the Right Bank-style flight is the best way to compare Long Island’s finest reds, its Merlot blends, to those of Bordeaux, which was the original idea back when vines were first planted here on the East End. While the “combat” style of pitting wine-against-wine in a tasting is far from perfect, it will have to do until we come up with something better. And, as it seems safe to say that our annual tasting has indeed managed to become a yearly tradition, it looks like we’ll have a chance to do just that. In the meantime, for those of you who’ve subscribed to the ABM (Anything But Merlot) rhetoric, open a bottle of 2001 Cheval Blanc. It is drinking beautifully right now, though will continue to evolve for another ten years, and is a perfectly stunning example of what Merlot can and should be. Don’t want to pay the $300-400? Take a trip to Peconic and taste the Lenz 2001 Estate Merlot priced at $23. You can drink it tonight, but while you’re there imagine how wonderful this wine will be in a few more years.

Time to Wine About March What could be better in the cold, ugly days of early March than sitting down with a nice glass of wine? Going to an entire convention center filled with it. Governor Spitzer may be trying to sell off the Jacob Javits Center’s expansion plot for $900 million dollars, but until that happens the convention center will be going strong and this weekend it will be the home of the first annual New York Wine Expo. When you enter the Grand Tasting you’ll be spinning before you take your first sip. Over 150 wine producers are on hand to offer you samples of over 600 wines. Broken up into countries and regions, traveling through the Special Events Hall will be like an around the world tour of some of the finest wines available. Not only is this a great chance to sample some wines you’ve never had access to before, it’s an opportunity to meet representatives from your favorite and local vineyards. East End wineries like Bedell, Clovis Point, Macari, Palmer, and Wölffer will be on hand. If you think there’s more to wine than getting that warm fuzzy feeling, you’re right. And there’s more to this expo than just drinking wine. The Winemakers Meet & Greet is your chance to spend a little quality time with the men and women who create your favorite wines. Curious about tannins or sulfites, or the best way to store specific wines? This is your shot to pull up a chair and ask a few questions (okay, so maybe you’ll only be able to ask one question). If you’re an aficionado and have been dying to know about a specific vineyard’s portfolio, this may be your only chance to find out the details straight from the

producers without having to travel to the vineyard. Are you a newcomer to the world of vino? That’s okay too. For an additional cost of about $30, you can attend 60-90 minute in-depth seminars led by industry leaders. On Friday check out a lecture on Zinfandels. Get the dish on Côtes du Rhone and the origin of Syrah (or Shiraz) and learn about the Rhone Valley, a place that has been producing wine since before Jesus could turn water into it. Looking to learn more about Malbecs? Well, Gloria Marot-Frazee, Director of Education for Wine Spectator, will take you deep into the intricacies of one of the great gems of Argentina. Saturday presents a great opportunity for anyone

CLASSIC CARS Probably the most common e-mails I receive are from readers who want to know what their car is worth. I usually tell them (in a nice way) to bug off asking me that silly question, because without seeing the car in person, it is virtually impossible to even guess what it’s worth. It’s the old, “He had a face that only a mother could love,” syndrome. The car owner always believes his little beauty is a lot better than it actually is. Cars are advertised in a lot of weird ways. Recently, I saw an ad in Old Car Trader in which the owner states that the car just had a $150,000 restoration. Strangely, the asking price for the car is $95,000. Boy, that was a bad investment, or the guy is lying. First show me the car, then show me the restoration bills. I’ll bet you right now that this car was about as kosher as the Pope’s Friday night dinner. What about the unbelievable ad where the owner states that the car had a ten-year restoration? My BS meter went off the scale. I only know of one fellow who had a ten-year restoration on his ‘55 T-Bird because it sat in the back of a body shop gathering overspray from the other hundreds of cars that were being restored while he gathered up enough dough to put his car together piecemeal. Unless your restoration/body shop man takes really long daily naps, it is simply impossible to take a decade to restore any car. Occasionally, one comes across a car that has a so called celebrity history. Adolf Hitler must have been a big car enthusiast because every time I see a pre WW2 Mercedes advertised, it always seems to have been an ex-Hitler ride. Next in fame would be Elvis. How many Cadillac convertibles did this guy own? Generally speaking, famous ownership,

looking to get his or her feet (and throat) wet. The “Outsmarting Wine 101” seminar with Mark Oldman will walk you through the lighter side of wine. He’s not going to pile industry jargon up to the ceiling, but rather introduce you to wine tasting techniques, buying strategies and how to order wine in a restaurant. In other words, remove the mystery and mystique, allowing the average person to enjoy wine. Aside from the wine and the wine experts, the expo offers complementary exhibitors. Just think, “What goes with wine?” and that’s what you’ll find: cheese producers, crackers, fine restaurants and air travel – more of the good life. Maybe after you’ve learned a thing or two you’ll be ready to sign up for Wine Enthusiast or Wine Spectator. Since this is a wine event, children are not allowed so leave the stroller at home (unless you think your husband will need it by the end) and bring ID because no one under 21 will be permitted inside. As for what to wear, just because Barefoot Vineyards is going to be there, it doesn’t mean you can show up in flip-flops – the organizers suggest business casual attire. Sip some fine wines and imagine yourself relaxing in the backyard of your summer home in mid-July. Oh, I forgot, you even get a free collectors glass to take home with you for when the weather actually does call for a glass of vino on the veranda. The 1st Annual New York Wine Expo takes place March 7-8th at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, 655 West 34th Street. Fri.7-10 p.m., Sat. 2-6 p.m. Tickets cost $85 for Friday and $95 for Saturday.


‘57 Chevy convertible

unless fully proven and documented, doesn’t mean that much when deciding a car’s value. Though I will say that Steve McQueen’s old Ferrari just sold for about a million bucks more than it was worth. Go figure. Another common advertising gambit is the expression, “show winner.” That’s always an impressive statement when describing a car for sale, but ask yourself, “What show was it?” If it was a local Lion’s Club car show, the statement doesn’t hold much water. However, if it was a well recognized national event, that’s an entirely different story. A good friend’s vintage Porsche won the “People’s Choice” at the Pebble Beach concourse several years ago. This is the car that if advertised well, would sell in an hour. Sadly, the car is actually too perfect to drive on the street. To sum up, being a show winner is good – just make sure it’s the right beauty contest. Many times a car is advertised as being totally mechanically rebuilt, engine, transmission, suspension, etc. First, the owner must show repair or restoration bills for all the work that he

asserts was performed. Second, the person who did the rebuild should have been qualified to work on that marquee automobile. Ferraris, even early Alfas, are difficult cars to repair. British cars have many idiosyncrasies. With German iron, you must obey all technical orders when rebuilding. The British car enthusiasts have an expression for various automobile experts. They call them specialists. If you have a Bentley in England, without question, it goes to a Bentley specialist. It’s usually the same for every other model. Today, when even a humdrum flat head Ford V-8 is unique, it is best to search out a specialist to repair/restore your car. Speaking of specialists, it’s not a bad idea to try to find one to evaluate any expensive car you are thinking of purchasing. I’m talking about relatively expensive collector cars, not cars like an MG-A or a Volkswagen thing. If you’re investing $100,000 plus in a collector quality automobile, it would certainly be prudent to have someone who knows more than you about the car you are about to drop a bundle on. One more thing – DRIVE THE CAR! To be perfectly honest, you may hate driving your mega-dollar collector car. By modern standards, old cars are not as much fun to drive as new cars. The cars of the ‘50s rock and roll era actually rock and roll severely on curves and rough roads. You may look great in a ‘57 Chevy convertible, but hold on to that wishy-washy steering wheel on the curves, and slow down. Please don’t ask me to look at any cars for you. I’m not a specialist, just a guy who likes cars. Bob Gelber, an automotive journalist living in the Hamptons, appears regularly on television as an automotive expert. You can email him at

Child’s Play Replacing the original role of a brother with a sister was an edgy choice. A promising idea until the father character told the sons, “You have to take care of her, she’s a girl.” Any hopes of a strong female character were dashed. What is this? 1956? In a later plot twist, the sister turns out to be the smart, strong one, saving the boys. Now it felt like a forced anecdote, preached to the converted at a ‘70s feminist rally. The original source material for the play was a simple story that was turned into a staged musical – not an unusual evolution. But in this production, only one song was original. The rest were ‘60s pop tunes. What was worse, the entire play was lip-synched – not just the songs, but the dialogue too. From start to finish, it was all on a track. Why not just play a DVD? You may be wondering why I’m doing a theater review in a parenting column. Well, it was a children’s play. In fact, a puppet show – a redux of “The Three Little Pigs,” presented a few weeks ago at the Parrish. That’s right. I’m reviewing a 20-minute puppet show. Okay, maybe I’m over thinking the experience. In fact, maybe it’s really pathetic for a grown woman to do a dramatic analysis of a puppet show. I can’t help myself. I’m an adult with expectations and standards – in addition to being a parent who wants her son to have a great theatrical experience that will spark his creativity in the long and short term. And, time for full disclosure, I’m also a trained musician, songwriter and produced playwright. So yes, maybe I do bring a tad too much to the table for children’s theater. For the record, I’m not insisting that every puppet show have the production values of a Disney mega-musical. In fact, just as with adult theater, neither the price of admission, the size of the stage nor the size of the cast has anything to do with the quality of the experience. I’m not a snob about venue – I just want it to be good: engaging, even enlightening, well done and inspirational. And I want my son to have that experience every time he goes to the theatre. And he goes a lot. My partner and I have taken him, from the age of one, to everything: Liz Joyce’s original, often eccentric productions at Goat on a Boat in Sag Harbor; community theater musicals in Jersey starring his grandmother, a former Copa girl; children’s theater at Bay Street, CMEE and West Hampton Beach Performing Arts Center. When he was 3, I schlepped him to Broadway to see Beauty and the Beast. And a few months ago he saw his first opera at the Met, Hansel and Gretel. When my partner joins us on these excursions, I’m instructed to bite my lip – to keep my adult experience to myself. But in addition to wanting his creativity jumpstarted, I want him to grow up with not just an appreciation of the arts, but the ability to distinguish between the good and the great performance; the singer who phones it in and the one who’s in the moment; the story line that’s smart and the one that’s contrived So I egg him on a little, “Did you like the clown’s voice? I thought it was a little squeaky.” “Did the show feel long to you?” Once, during a performance of the Russian Children’s Circus (an unending hour of spinning and ball rolling to extremely loud music) he asked “Is it over?” Hoping he had become more “discerning” (and wanting to walk out myself) I answered, “Would you like it to be?” No. He didn’t. Or wouldn’t admit it. In fact, he’ll sit through it

all, finding even the tiniest element to catch his interest. As he did at the pig production. He liked the wolf ’s fangs. And the sound of the male singer who recorded the wolf ’s song. But, with little goading, he offered up a critique: It was too short. Afterward, outside the Parrish, he introduced

himself to another little boy and they chased each other around, laughing – my son pretending to be the big bad wolf. I had arrived at my next parenting lesson. When you really want your child to have an experience that sparks his creativity and imagination, remember: the play’s the thing.

Entertainment In Town Roundabout Theatre Company is presenting the film and stage star Kathleen Turner in her New York directing debut with a confident, yet flawed production of Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize winning play Crimes of the Heart. Turner’s staging bears her broad signature style, and while she has a talented ensemble doing her bidding, little about the evening feels organic. Much of it is quite funny, even touching, but the over the top approach does little to serve the playwright, turning her poignant character study into a superficial re-telling that accentuates the play’s shortcomings. Crimes of the Heart set in 1974 Hazelhurst, Mississippi is a bittersweet story about the Magrath sisters, Lenny, Meg and Babe (Jennifer Dundas, Sarah Paulson, and Lily Rabe), who have been deeply damaged by their mother’s suicide by hanging years earlier. Meg, the middle sister, found their mother’s lifeless body hanging side by side with the family cat. Considered to be the black sheep of the family, Meg had left home five years earlier – after Hurricane Camille – with hopes of a singing career. Lenny, the caretaker of the three, wires Meg to return home because of a family emergency, but doesn’t mention that Babe has been hauled off to jail for shooting her husband. When the sisters reunite at Old Granddaddy’s house, the tattered bonds of their sisterhood will be sorely tested. Henley’s poignant writing is often infused with heartbreak. But Turner’s first time directorial effort misses the key ingredient, “the ties that bind.” You never feel the underbelly of their family tragedy. And

review: “crimes of the heart” gordin & christiano

that is most unfortunate, because Henley has drawn finely nuanced characterizations of these southern sisters. There is a ring of authenticity that can be compelling. But Turner’s one-noted approach lacks the depth to reveal the pathos rendering the evening more sentimental than moving. Amongst the actresses, Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson manage to steer clear of caricature. The other women take full flight into playing extreme qualities, thus diminishing the appeal of the story. The core of Crimes of the Heart is the bond of these imperfect women to survive together no matter what and to have “a good ole time” in the process. Without that center, the actors come across less like humans with real emotion, more like marionettes. Turner’s gifted cast is always entertaining, especially when overacting, but the fussy behavior takes

us out of the drama instead engaging us in the unfolding action. The result is a series of stops and starts instead of a forceful build up of details and events. Turner’s evening is built on sand as opposed to the truth and the portrait of the Magrath sisters’ indomitable spirit is more sweet than convincing. Downtown, the LAByrinth Theater Company, now in residence at the Public Theater, is presenting the world premiere of Brett C. Leonard’s Unconditional a brutal depiction of nine New York stories charged with themes of race, sex, drugs, love, justice and betrayal. Director Mark Wing-Davey has explosively staged the violent drama for maximum effect. Under his skillful guidance, the cinematic like tale, which is told in brief shocking, overlapping scenes, begins to add up to much more than is actually on the page. Wing-Davey’s powerful production unfolds on Mark Wendland’s innovative shifting set, where audience members look down at the action from all sides and different heights. Unconditional closes March 9th, for tickets call 212-967-7555. Crimes of the Heart opened on February 14, 2008 at the Laura Pels Theatre, 111 West 46th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.

She’s the one who stays up late creating posters, newspaper ads and radio spots for good causes and takes care of all the details.” After the parade, head down Main Street to St. Mark’s Church’s Corned Beef and Cabbage Lunch from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. For only $10 get a heaping helping of corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, carrots, Irish soda bread, dessert, coffee and tea.

MINI – MOVIE REVIEWS College Road Trip In this funny, family-friendly comedy, the sassy girl from “That’s so Raven” plays a good, high school girl who wants to let loose as she tours America’s universities - but her dad (Martin Lawrence) comes along for the ride. Can’t a girl go to a frat party in peace? Stay sober, Raven. 10,000 B.C. If you thought last year’s 300 was brawny, imagine a young mammoth hunter fighting to secure his tribe. This epic, entertaining, quasi-sci-fi flick will keep you interested with fast pacing and sweet special effects through each man versus animal action sequence. Metaphorical? Meaningful? Perhaps. The Bank Job Consider this: A group of lowly criminals think they are stealing money, but are actually unknowingly on a top secret mission to steal photos of a Royal princess in some compromising positions. Smart and suspenseful, this alternative heist film - based on a true story will steal... your mind. The Other Boleyn Girl Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman play sisters in competition for the affections of King Henry VIII. Based on a best-selling novel, this film is a geek boy’s delight – and a period piece for all interested historians. Semi-Pro Will Ferrell is back, coaching a Harlem Globetrotters-esque basketball team that includes Woody Harrelson, in this semi-funny film. Caramel A romantic comedy located in Lebanon, in which five women contend with marriages, careers, and religions while shooting the breeze in a Beirut beauty salon. Jumper A young man played by Hayden Christensen discovers he has the power to teleport from place to place - as well as the power to seduce Rachel Bilson. Christensen uses his teleporting powers to avenge the death of his mother and fight the organization trying to eradicate “jumpers” like himself, but the complicated plot is less interesting than the chemistry between

the co-stars. The Spiderwick Chronicles Twin brothers move into a depressing new neighborhood, only to find it enlivened by the existence of magical creatures. For your daughter, the bros also have a sister and some fairy friends. For your (young) family, this is the movie. Vantage Point Five different points of view are interweaved to paint a multi-perspective picture of an assassination attempt on the President. Dennis Quad stars in this interesting albeit gimmicky thriller. If only I could get such perspective on my failed relationship. Excuse me? Charlie Bartlett A boy who fails to fit in at his new public school begins listening to the many problems of his young peers as their makeshift therapist - and drug dealer! An interesting albeit odd idea for a film, no? With subtle points and young talent, this could be - finally - an original and relevant teen movie. I Can't Hardly Wait (for real!).

more than pleased and begins requesting other movies. Well, the customer is always right, so the auteurs “Swede” (the term they coin, without great

explanation, to describe their special work) more major hits, like Rush Hour 2, RoboCop, Last Tango in Paris, Boyz N The Hood, 2010 and It’s a Wonderful Life. Other customers begin to dig the duo’s efforts, and s soon, long lines of enthusiasts wanting to rent the homemade efforts form around the block. As if a cure for the urban blues, the grungy neighborhood is emotionally revived as the love for Sweded epics grows and grows, until the big studios catch wind. Naturally, the industry, in typical bigbusiness-bad-guy fashion, arrives to squash these perceived (and yes, actual) bootleggers, leaving them with a week before the store gets axed. However, to a crew that produced a version of Driving Miss Daisy that runs under a half-hour and stars Black’s Jerry as Miss Daisy, that’s a lot of time to go out with a wonderful bang. And wonderful it is! Gondry invests his characters with motive and psyche, yet never weighs down the film with any deep thought. It’s lighthearted, innocuous, and loaded with warm, funny references to some of Hollywood’s best and worst films. But of course, there has to be a message somewhere, and it is this: People who love movies should go ahead and make them. And in a world where anybody with a camera can shoot and upload a homemade version of Men in Black or Carrie to YouTube with little effort, yet reach a large and instantaneous audience – it’s nice advice from someone who probably enjoys receiving royalties himself. Ian Stark is heard frequently on TV and the radio as a commentator on the movie industry, and consults with private organizations on their collections.

This is a quirky, jerky film set in a magical and trendy world where there are young and hip customers at every angle, all avid video tape renters. In defiance to the Netflix, DVD and web-based world we live in, the movie fans in this bizarro planet (a dusty, tired Passaic, NJ) are all about the VHS. But on second thought, there’s no shame in a community that’s okay with video, because that is Director Michel Gondry’s (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) whole plan: to imagine a world that appreciates real effort over improved picture quality. The Be Kind Rewind Video & Thrift store is the property of long-time owner and community linchpin Mr. Fletcher (Danny Glover), who heads off on a vacation and leaves his counter clerk Mike (actor and rapper Mos Def) to take care of the oddball customers including Jerry (Jack Black), who lives across the street in a trailer. Through his ongoing machinations against the local power plant, Jerry ends up magnetizing himself, which as any former Blockbuster clerk can tell you, isn’t good for video recordings. Before long, his lingering presence leaves every tape in the establishment erased. So, when the equally dedicated/intimidating customer Miss Falewicz (Mia Farrow) arrives to rent a copy of Ghostbusters, which she has never seen, the charged-up Jerry and grounded (pardon the puns) Mike set out to replace the store’s copy of that ‘80’s comedy in the only way they can – by shooting their own version. Unlike the thousands of film students who could replicate the special effects from that flick on a laptop, the pair uses eggs, vacuum hoses and aluminum foil to produce the remake, which ends up coming in at a neat 20 minutes. Upon viewing, Falewicz is

If I heard or read it once, I’ve heard or read it a dozen times. “When cooking with wine be sure to use something you would drink with dinner.” None of this supermarket shelf cooking wine thank you. “Wine is food and when drinking wine with food it should compliment,” says Doug Gulija, chef/owner of the Plaza Café in Southampton. “An oak-y chardonnay is well matched to fettucine Alfredo, for instance, to cut through the richness of the dish,” he added. Well versed in wine, Gulija holds several wine dinners at his restaurant throughout the year. Roman Roth, wine maker extraordinaire at Wölffer Estate Vineyards in Sagaponack, argues that wine and food are simply meant to go together. “Wine, food and friends are the perfect combination – the total dining experience,” he said. Roth explained that the acidity in wine cuts the fat and adds freshness to foods in the same way that lemon or lime juice would. He is planning several wine dinners at South and North Fork restaurants in April and May. Check Wölffer’s website for details. For your cooking with wine pleasure, I’ve chosen two favorite wine-based recipes to both make and enjoy with wine. Seafood stew, a condensed, contemporary version of bouillabaisse, calls for a Reisling or rose. Roth suggests a Merlot for both the cooking of and drinking with braised beef. He said that East End Merlots have, “more structure and texture – the alcohol level in local Merlot is lower than in hot or warmer climates.” Cheers, salute and bon appetit!

Arts & Galleries THE IMAGE OF WOMEN IN ART Part 1: Tulla Booth Gallery and Uber House Weather-wise, March brings the lion and the lamb. March is also Women’s Month. A search of local exhibits reveals diverse, provocative female images in settings which are just as varied. “Gallery Favorites” at Sag Harbor’s Tulla Booth Gallery features photographs by Burt Glinn. What’s particularly relevant, however, is the iconic imagery of female celebrities that the works present. The famous subject is the important aesthetic element here, not how the photographer perceives the subject as in cases like Irving Penn or Annie Leibovitz. Simply put, Glinn often uses his camera to record images from films; the subject is playing a “character” who has not been created by the photographer. Consider Elizabeth Taylor in two scenes from Suddenly, Last Summer. Ms. Taylor is made to look vulnerable, yet still sexy in both shots as a birdseye-view reinforces the presence of some unseen power from above. Thus Ms. Taylor is perceived as the object of the “male gaze.” This male gaze also dominates a picture of Sophia Loren as multiple images are repeated through a mirror’s reflection. The image suggests that a woman has many faces and thus should be

viewed with caution. And then there’s the famous photo of Andy Warhol, Chuck Wein and Edie Sedgewick stuffed

into a New York sewer, their bodies fragmented and askew. The pose perfectly captures a surreal moment in time that continues to characterize Warhol and his colleagues. The Uber House, also located in Sag Harbor, provides an unusual environment for its depiction of women. In fact, the mixture of large photographs and objects serves as an installation carrying a potent message regarding the duality of female images: both sexual and nurturing. Therefore, we see photographs of both sensual nude females and a pregnant woman. However, the works don’t stop there in their implications. There’s a feeling of disorientation when we consider the exhibit as a whole. For example, one photo shows the fragmentation of body parts; we don’t see the faces of the subjects either. Adding to the unreality is the fact that the figures are also painted in blue. Of course, such techniques may be there to give the images an exotic sense as well. Here’s a good instance of how interpretations depend on individual perceptions that each viewer brings to the work. The exhibit at the Tulla Booth Gallery will be on view until April 15. Call 631-725-3100. The show at the Uber House will be there through March. Call 631-725-0909 for details.

Honoring the Artist: Cuca Romley This week’s cover artist, Cuco Romley, has a particular penchant for trees. And while she grew up in Madrid and Paris where trees are scarce, she got lucky when she moved across the street from Central Park in New York. Residing in Sag Harbor these last several years has given Ms. Romley a decided advantage where trees are once more a part of her everyday environment. Winter is a special time for both Ms. Romley and trees. (Consider that she named her art gallery, The Winter Tree.) Q: I notice that the cover features maple syrup time and lots of trees. But it’s winter now and you’re doing a painting of Guild Hall. All the trees are bare. Why not wait until Spring? A: I like the trees in winter. Besides, when there are leaves on the branches, you can’t see the buildings. In the summer, trees hide things. I find trees are beautiful. I’m painting them like a maniac. Q: What else attracted you to Guild Hall? A: I had never painted this part of Main Street. I also wanted to do Guild Hall because it doesn’t involve stores in East Hampton, which come and go.

I also discovered Clinton Academy across the street from Guild Hall. It’s one of the oldest buildings around. Q: Is winter an isolating time for you? A: No, it’s the only time I can paint. The rest of the year, I am running a gallery. I live in a house in the middle of Main Street in Sag Harbor, not in the middle of the woods where I would feel isolated. I have a comfortable environment. Music is playing in the background; I don’t even cook. People come to visit me on the weekends. I love it. I can focus on my work. Q: You also like to discover places in the Hamptons that you didn’t know existed. A: Yes, I get in my car and explore. For example, I ended up in a seaport in Southampton a few days ago. Q: If you go farther, where would you travel to? A: I would travel to China to paint. It’s changing a lot. And I wouldn’t go on a tour, but travel on bus, train, whatever. I am reading an interesting book about the country, China Road.

Q: I know you’ve mentioned in the past that you also liked Sante Fe because of its architecture, and San Francisco. Would you move there? A: I don’t see myself there. I see myself passing by. I would find myself criticizing new places. That’s normal, since you see things differently than the people who live there. I don’t belong to any one place. I belong to all places. Q: You are a “Woman of the World.” A: Yes. I love the whole planet; I love how nature is organized. It’s a pity we have destroyed the planet. As the Native Americans believe, we don’t own anything. We think we control the earth, but we don’t. – Marion Wolberg Weiss The Winter Tree Gallery (125 Main Street, Sag Harbor) will be hosting a reception with mulled wine on Saturday and Sunday, March 8 and 9.

Health, Beauty & Fitness Yoga Tradition 2: Vedantan As we all learned with the first installment of this series, all Yoga is not created equal. There are as many varieties of yoga as there are flavors of Jelly Bellys, and if you go in expecting banana you’re going to be awfully disappointed with buttered popcorn. The best way to avoid this frustration is to be aware of what kind of yoga you’re practicing, and the benefits it offers. All of the yoga practiced today is part of a complex history, which dates back thousands of years. Whether it’s called Iyengar, Ashtanga, Anusara or Sivananda, its roots are in India and it descends from one of three main traditions: Classical, Vedantan, and Tantric. Last week this column explored some of the practices and philosophies of Classical Yoga. This week we’ll look at Vedantan. Vedantan Yoga, like all yoga, is a philosophy tied to a practice. But unlike Classical Yoga, Vedanta is nondualist. This means that practitioners believe there is only one reality. On top of that, Vedantans believe that that reality is not what you see in front of you every day. Rather, they believe that this world – everything we touch or see – is an illusion. Therefore, any attachment to this world is misplaced And creating bonds will only lead to suffering – kind of like believing in the oasis when it’s actually a mirage. To understand the Vedantan tradition, it helps to root it in something we all understand, and Hollywood comes to the rescue. The movie “The Matrix” depicts some Vedantan ideas. It shows a

world where we all exist in separate little pods, and we look like we’re sleeping. Each of our pods is connected, and we are all suspended in a vast space. Our bodies move only enough to breathe. However, in our minds, we imagine very complex worlds. These worlds, according to Vedantic thought, don’t actually exist. That’s why it would be so misguided to grow attached to them. Because of this foundational philosophy, those who practice Vedantan style yoga will have a completely different concept of their bodies. After all, our bodies are part of this world. So, according to Vedanta, our bodies aren’t real either. This is to say that we shouldn’t be attached to our bodies. In the words of one of the main texts of Vedantan Yoga, the Upanishads, “Absorbed in the Self, the sage is freed from identity with the body and lives in blissful consciousness.” How can we engage in a physical practice when we don’t believe our bodies are real? Well, one way to further yourself along the Vedantan path would be to meditate, and to meditate, you have to be comfortable. You’ve probably seen a typical meditation seat: it may be Lotus pose, Virasana or even a simple cross-legged seat. But regardless, your muscles have to be strong and flexible, and your body needs stam-

ina and alignment to sit for an extended period of time. To get to this place is really the reason the physical postures came to exist. Vedantan practitioners often become swamis, or monks. If you go into a yoga studio or ashram and see yogis in red robes, chances are you are in a Vedantic setting. One example of Vedantan Yoga practiced here in the United States is Sivananda. This tradition resonates with a lot of people, and there are teacher trainings every year. During the teacher trainings, students are expected to adhere to a vegetarian diet and to abstain from alcohol and drugs, among other things. Part of the reason for this, presumably, is because these restrictions help to limit our attachments to this world. Of course, as someone dropping in to a Sivananda class, you won’t necessarily adhere to the same restrictions that a teacher or advanced practitioner would. As a student, you may simply benefit from the physical practice. If you take a class with a Sivananda-trained teacher, you can expect that you’ll warm up with some sun salutations and then move into a series that includes the twelve postures considered by Vedantans to be the basic ones.

Health, Beauty & Fitness Calories When someone told me that Kirstie Alley consumed over 8,000 calories a day, I decided to analyze exactly how someone could achieve that level of caloric consumption. This is not a “how to” for becoming overweight, but a way to find out what can put you far over your daily calorie intake. The first thing I did was to open my freezer. Sitting on the bottom shelf was a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup ice cream. Ignoring the 24 grams of fat, I went directly to the calories per serving – 340, not bad. But a pint contains four servings. That’s 1,360 calories in the pint. We can top that. Last Friday I went to the movies and had a large tub of popcorn with extra butter. God knows what the butter consists of, but on average a tub of popcorn with butter will run about 1,500 calories. Now add extra butter and I was edging toward 2,000 calories. Sadly, I finished the tub before the movie started, got a second helping, and ate 3/4 of the second tub. If I would have to guess, I’d say I consumed almost 3,200 calories in less than two hours. Ever have one too many drinks and then down an entire Dominos pizza? Sure you have, it’s called college. Well, a 12-inch pie will register about 1,800 calories. Now add that to the drinks you had beforehand and you’re looking at a 2,500 calorie night on the town. Pizza doesn’t sound as good as it once did? How about wings? Ruby Tuesday’s frozen wings add up to 109 calories per wing. For a box of ten, that’s 1,090 calories. Oh, I forgot, the blue cheese is 126 calories

per ounce. Okay, so I’ve just outlined some of the unhealthiest foods we consume on a regular basis. Let’s add it up. If I sat down and ate a pint of ice cream, 1 3/4 buckets of popcorn with extra butter, an entire Dominos pizza with a few beers, 10 Buffalo wings and an ounce. of blue cheese, I would have consumed 8,276 calories – par for Alley’s alleged daily consumption. I can eat. I can eat more than almost anyone I

know, and still, I couldn’t consume that much food. Not even on my best day. In addition to sheer calories, these foods are loaded with fat, cholesterol and carbohydrates. And aside from a little vitamin C in the tomato sauce on the pizza and some calcium from the cheese, there’s not much in the way of anything beneficial. To consume this many calories while eating health foods, you would have to eat 12 pounds of salmon in one day, or 320 cups of raw broccoli, or 96 cups of blueberries. Now, I’m not telling you to do any of those things, I just wanted to illustrate the sheer amount of calories in those unhealthy items compared to those in the healthy list. The important thing is to eat properly and in proportion. Learning your daily calorie intake is fairly simple. It is a simple formula which takes into account your gender, age, weight, height and physical activity. Visit any number of websites online to get a rough estimate of how many calories you need to maintain your weight. For a more exact number, visit an actual nutritionist. He or she can also help advise on the best way for you to lose weight, if necessary. Just be ready, because I’m pretty sure they will tell you to stay away from Buffalo wings and extra butter. Next time you hover over a pint of ice cream, think about Kirstie Alley. Sure, she’s slimmed down and scored a TV show and a Jenny Craig spokesperson deal, but do you really think that eating Ben & Jerry’s is going to get you a sitcom?

Health, Beauty & Fitness Detoxing Your Home... and Yourself The simple solution here is to make your air as clean as possible. Address the cause by switching to natural and organic furniture and carpeting; address the symptoms by purchasing a high-quality air purifier that eliminates toxic particles. DIY kits are available to test for radon levels indoors and many carbon monoxide detectors – which are a smart investment in any case – indicate even the slightest presence of the harmful gas. Finally, take off your shoes when you get home; not only will it keep your house cleaner, but you’ll avoid

tracking in all those chemicals and toxins on the ground outside. Treat lead paint with extreme caution; take steps to determine if it’s in your house, and if it is, remove it carefully. And, of course, the most important way to address toxicity is to turn a critical eye to the foods you eat. Facing harmful toxins that number in the thousands, it will take more than a few tips to restore our world to a state of nature . . . but even eliminating one toxin can be a positive start for creating a healthier world, both inside and out. – Patrick Dougherty

The most common facial feature that people wish they could change is their nose. Research shows that more men and women at a younger age are now opting for nasal surgery. Often, in their quest for a more aesthetic and attractive nose, people forget that it also serves the important purpose of cleaning, humidifying and warming the air we breathe. While a good looking nose is desirable, a nose that does not work well can be the bane to one’s existence. Nasal surgery is decidedly one of the most intricate of facial surgeries. It involves changing skin,cartilage and frequently bone. Each serves a specific purpose and each plays off the other in the healing process. Searching for a surgeon with highly refined skills in nasal surgery is the wisest decision that a potential patient can make. Doing your home work and choosing a surgeon with the credentials and experience of Dr. Paul Kelly is of extreme importance when considering nasal surgery. He is double boarded in not only Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery but also in surgery of the Head and Neck. This combination allows him to pay Dr. PAUL KELLY MD, FACS particular attention to the cosmetic as well as the functional aspects of nasal surgery. The procedure itself has evolved from the days of lengthy packing, significant pain and eyes swollen shut – to one marked by overnight non-compression pads, minimal swelling and bruising and only mild tomoderate discomfort. The kinder and gentler nose operation in Dr. Kelly’s hands can create a nose that not only looks good but works effectively as well.



Computer imaging is available during consultation and allows you to speak candidly about your expectations for the surgery. With Dr. Kelly’s guidance you choose the nose that is aesthetic, fitting for your facial features, consistent with your goals, will work effectively and is possible surgically.

You’d like to think that when you close your front door, you’re closing out the ever-present health threat of environmental toxins. Not so. In fact, one study by the EPA found that an average home’s contaminant levels are up to 70 times higher than the nasties you might encounter while outside. Thanks to today’s energy-efficient new homes and retrofit upgrades, these toxins are sealed in as much as they’re sealed out. Mercifully, the inner environment is under our control, and we can reduce the toxic load in home sweet home. Surfaces A TV commercial shows a young mother blasting her toddler’s personal space with an aerosol disinfectant – suggesting that the child is better off inhaling synthetic chemicals than dealing with a few germs. In this image we have one of America’s great environmental ironies: the drive for cleanliness can plunge an entire household into toxicity. Those chemical products that keep our homes sparkly clean may be staining our very well-being. In fact, one EPA report found that toxic household cleaners are three times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air pollution. Non-toxic cleaning solutions abound. Scour your house for all those multi-syllabic chemical concoctions packaged in canisters and aerosol sprays, dispose of them responsibly and replace them with natural alternatives. Dried Chinese soapberry tree fruit can replace laundry detergent; natural essential oils are more effective and delicious-smelling than synthetic air fresheners; and baking soda and vinegar can replace most synthetic surface cleaners. Of course, remember the free, non-toxic, miraculously effective surface cleaner: elbow grease Water Perhaps the most underrated household toxicity source may be good ol’ H20. Municipal water has been found to contain arsenic, asbestos, pesticides, herbicides, cyanide, mercury and even traces of pharmaceutical drugs – just to name a few contaminants. Now imagine taking a shower, breathing in steam and absorbing water. Add to that brushing teeth, drinking coffee, using ice cubes, cooking pasta and . . . well, you get the idea. Water’s ubiquity makes it a particularly insidious purveyor of toxins, especially on Long Island. As if Long Island’s legendary aggressive chemical turf management weren’t bad enough for groundwater, the state Department of Environmental Conservation recently released a report that found that Methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) – a toxic gasoline additive now banned in New York – was present in the water of 40% of test wells at Long Island gasoline stations. What to do? One solution is a whole-house water filtration system. By connecting to the house’s main water supply, such systems remove toxins from every drop of water you use –from laundry to bath to cooking water. Air According to the EPA, a typical home will have detectable levels of up to 12 pesticides . . . in the air alone. Exacerbating the indoor air quality problem are Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), harmful gases that rise off common household synthetic materials and products like carpeting, televisions, upholstery, manufactured wood products, cleaners and conventional paints. Radon, an invisible radioactive gas that seeps into houses from underlying soil, presents another toxic health risk while the lethal gas carbon monoxide can also harm health at lower levels.

The Garden At Rock Cottage by Lance Brilliantine Getting Ready for Spring Signs of spring are already visible in the northeast. As I look into the garden with its increasing light, buds are now swelling, many bulbs have surfaced, and while winter is still here, this has not been an overly frigid year to date. The sun’s renewed warmth is already evident on some days. Gardeners are having that indefatigable drive to get their hands dirty and get outdoors. With its unpredictable weather, March is a perfect time for garden cleanup. Here are suggestions on things to do during March when there are breaks in the weather. Remove and discard leaves, plant debris and remaining dead annuals from last year. While some may think it is too early to remove winter coverings, removal actually helps the soil to warm, promotes bulb photosynthesis, and eliminates potential diseases. (Removing dead leaves also removes a high percentage of deer tick larvae before they emerge.) Use a high-quality rake, gardener’s claw, or a gloved hand to perform this task. Lawns also benefit from a good raking to remove debris and thatch, and to lift turf. However, if the ground is wet, avoid walking on lawns because of the potential to compact soil. Use gloved hands to remove debris around emerging bulbs to prevent the scarring and shredding of delicate growth. Now is a good time to cut back ornamental grasses. Be sure to wear gloves as you trim grasses (dried grass blades are sharp). If the grasses are isolated and far away from inflammables, you can burn off the old

foliage. If not, tie heavy string around the middle of the old foliage and cut stalks off below the string with a saw or heavy-duty shears. This approach pre-bundles the stalks for easy removal. Once debris is gone, inspect flowerbeds to be sure that plants uprooted by frost have not been dislodged or discarded. Any such plants need to be pushed down into the soil. On the few days when soil can be worked, use a pitchfork to turn over the soil in flowerbeds. Be careful not to uproot perennials during the process. Covering turned soil with a thick coating of peat moss helps to aerate and improve soil quality. Two weeks later, douse the area with a tonic made from ten cups of cow manure and two cups of liquid ammonia in a 5-gallon bucket. Fill the bucket with water. Cover the bucket and permit the mixture to ferment for two weeks. Use liberally around perennials, shrubs and other plants to impart renewed vigor as the season gets going. Now is a good time to check roses to ensure they are still covered with mounds of soil or mulch. Roses do best if they remain covered until mid- to late-April when leaves appear because they are susceptible to early spring damage from frost. Perform final rose pruning at the end of March by removing dead stalks and trimming other stalks back to outward-facing buds. Be sure to prune stalks at a 45-degree angle to

permit water runoff. Fruit trees also benefit from early spring maintenance. Prune out dead branches and water spouts, and cut back tree crowns to encourage air circulation. Prune away touching branches that foster bruises and disease. For trees that suffered any type of blight or fungus last season, spray them now with Bordeaux mixture, an alternate to copper fungicide, or Daconil, before buds emerge. Because weeds get started early, March is an excellent time to inspect flowerbeds for signs of last year’s monster weeds. If you spot weeds, now is a great time to pull out roots with ease. You can also use a hoe to remove many weeds seeking a foothold. When removing weeds, be sure to discard these at a recycling dump or through garbage pickup. Placing spent weeds on compost heaps only seems to promote even more weeds the next year. Performing gardening chores in March is a great way to wake up the gardening spirit and also to save a chunk of time later on in the spring. Undertaking these chores now provides a great opportunity to commiserate with nature, and to feel a sense of accomplishment, all without the pressure of “having to get it done.” You can contact Lance Brilliantine with any questions or comments at

could you cut off the excess? No way – there’s no waste on a sphere because it’s the basic shape in nature. Once I cut an elliptical shell in half and placed it on the wall. I wondered, why is it still curved? Then I create sculptured paintings, which project into our space to rise into positive and negative curvature from zero curvature – to escape flatland thinking. We have the tools to sort out what happens in the immensities of outer space. On the other hand, the narrower focus of a poet may possibly make it easier to explain. I leave you with these thoughts... The Young Moon Says... I am your barren sister, sown in weakness raised in power – a place you cannot live, and forever, we are uneasy together. I am the mute sphere like the dumb part of the mind, observed in the night sky reflecting sunlight in a calm. I am there, even while you sleep, in full view you hesitate to recognize what happens to me. I am a simple timepiece of all things that exist drawing you to behold an economy of movement in the firmament. Assuring you that nothing exists in timelessness, even so – it is hard for you – to take it easy. SPACE TALK Dear Dan, Art is knowing where to draw the line and when to cut it – and yours does, as usual, very well. (Moon, 2/29/08) When you saw the eclipse and sensed that you’re on a giant sphere hurtling through space looking across at another doing the same thing, you’re well on your way into abstract thinking. It takes freedom of the mind. In this way, 40 years ago, I evolved an art form. As to why these bodies in the universe are all smooth and round? I say it’s because they exist outside the confines of a frame (not suspended on a wire). To drive this point home, consider a bubble, or like sphere. How

Mym Tuma Southampton So the world isn’t flat? – DR LIKE A KID IN A CANDY SHOP Dear Dan, “Slow and Steady” was a riot, but, seriously, Sag Harbor’s most effective asset is its dysfunctional government. Sometimes the results are comical, but we stand well “preserved” and the happiest people on the East End. Not doing anything works! We have discouraged and delayed speculative development, and the result is that Sag Harbor is a true mirror of its people, not a “new,” and

“improved” version brought to you by investors or narcissists. We have more architectural interest and a cultural integrity that is admired by all. I will credit our good fortune to Sag Harbor’s inability to know how to respond to big, new ideas. The Hamptons Dictionary defines local boards as “candy stores” “where 95% of variance applications are granted, more than a few out of fear of lawsuits based upon previously granted, precedent setting, decisions; rubber stamp(s); See ‘Stop and Shop.’” I wouldn’t agree with every Sag Harbor decision, but for a long time we have resisted the “candy store” mold. The trap – or the secret, depending on your point of view – is that this is actually Wonderland. Let me give you an example. A developer came to town a few years ago with a “big” proposition that became subsumed into our governmental quicksand. In defeat, this is what he was heard to say: “I’m going to lose my shirt! I made a mistake by thinking we’d go in there and say to the Boards ‘we’re going to spend millions and millions in your town and they would appreciate it. But they don’t care! What do they know, anyway? They are just a bunch of plumbers and school teachers.” On the surface Mr. Big was arrogant and insulting. But how can you blame him, in the contemporary, lawyer-driven world, where money will beget lawsuit and lawsuit begets capitulation? His frustration was quite understandable, but the point is that he went away and nothing in the Harbor changed. Our dysfunction has served us well, Dan, and I think I’ve made my point on that. What I am curious about, since I know you as a most astute observer of the Sag Harbor scene – as well as a life-long booster – why you think that “Sag Harbor Closed” sign wasn’t intentional? Ted Conklin Sag Harbor Via e-mail Oh my God. – DR

Police Blotter enjoying a cigar inside a hot tub. When the resident confronted the man, he claimed he thought he was at his “Uncle’s house.” The cigar smoking man then got out of the hot tub and ran off. * * * The Gas Man Argument A gasoline attendant in East Hampton was pumping up a car with what was supposed to be $15 worth of gas. The attendant however, was distracted while talking to another person and went two dollars over the $15 limit. The driver asked the attendant to give her $5 after she gave him a twenty dollar bill because it was not her fault that the attendant was not paying attention. The attendant said he would only pay three. When the driver argued his position, the attendant became irate and gave the driver just a nickel while swinging the gas pump at the driver. The driver filed a report. Five bucks of gasoline is precious stuff these days. * * * Traffic Violations A man in Southampton was arrested after he failed to pay countless traffic violations. When he appeared in court and was asked why he didn’t pay the tickets he said, “Because I hate paying my parking tickets.” Needless to say, the man paid up.

* * * Getting Rowdy Two men in Sag Harbor were asked to leave a convenience store after he was caught opening and drinking a bottle of beer inside of the store. The men were charged with open container violations and left the store……without any beer. – Compiled and Written by David Lion Rattiner

Bad Boys, Bad Boys A man in East Hampton was followed in a high speed chase by police after he didn’t pull his car over. The man finally pulled over and then tried to explain to police that he didn’t notice the flashing lights or the bullhorn command. Police smelled alcohol on the man and gave him a sobriety test, which he failed. He was arrested for driving while intoxicated. When police told him to put his hands behind his back, he heard those commands loud and clear. * * * Leaf Blower A man in East Hampton reported to police that his leaf blower had been stolen. Police are opening up an investigation. There have been a few leads so far, but some have just been people blowing smoke. * * * No Fishing A man in Montauk reported that his fishing set had been stolen. Okay, there are two things you don’t do in Montauk – one is you don’t mess with a man’s fishing rod and the other is, YOU DON’T MESS WITH A MAN’S FISHING ROD! * * * Hot-Tubber A man in Southampton was caught hot tub hopping by a resident who stumbled upon the man
