One of the great attractions on the East End is Cyril’s Fish House along the Napeague Stretch where crowds and crowds of people come to drink, meet Cyril, admire each other and eat clams on the half shell. One of the great dangers on the East End is Cyril’s Fish House along the Napeague Stretch, where crowds and crowds come to drink, meet Cyril, admire each other, eat clams and cause huge traffic tie-ups and even accidents when their masses spill uncontrollably out into the street. Now the town is considering shutting down Cyril’s. Why can’t they turn the place around and face the bar to the back? There’s room between the building and the railroad tracks. The Sagg Post Office got turned around to face the other way years ago. It works.

East Hampton’s Martha Stewart participated in an “Ask Me Anything” session for Reddit.com last week. Popular topics included her time in jail, tattoos and a rumored feud with Amagansett resident Gwyneth Paltrow.

“Along with the New York Subway System, Hamptons Subway is the only underground transit system in the State of New York.”
The H amptons Subway Newsletter By DAn rattiner
Week of March 14–20, 2014 Riders this past week: 9,622 Rider miles this past week: 100,002 DOWN IN THE TUBE Last week’s few days of sunshine and warm temperatures have inspired people to get out of the house and do things. As a consequence, subway ridership soared this week. Beth and Howard Stern were seen on sunny Tuesday afternoon taking the subway between Water Mill and Southampton holding hands. Former mayor Giuliani was out with his beloved between Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor. Brooklyn Nets Coach Jason Kidd and his wife were out too, heading from Southampton to a favorite sports bar of theirs in Hampton Bays. They asked us not to give it away. SETTING THE RECORD Astonishingly, as the week ended, we closed in on having 100,000 riders in total, something that has never before happened in March. As a result, as the week’s count ended at 2 a.m.
on Saturday and it appeared we would fall one short, several mid-level executives, on orders from the Commissioner, left their homes and went out onto Main Street in Southampton and grabbed a random pedestrian who, because of alcoholic indulgence, was cooperative enough to go along down the stairs to the platform and shoved through the turnstiles to make it an even 100,000. After that, two other people apparently took the last subway home, the 1:59 from Amagansett to Bridgehampton, which would have made the pedestrian-grab unnecessary, but we didn’t know that at the time. We just counted them all. The total is above. LAWSUIT Three weeks ago, Hampton Subway security officers removed some potted plants and a formally dressed butler from the platform at the new Georgica stop. He had been hired to stay down there by an anonymous billionaire who lives on the Pond and assist arriving guests and residents on and off the subway at the appropriate time. Georgica is our most prestigious subway stop. The problem was he
danspapers.com did his job deferentially, politely and slowly, and it slowed our train schedule. Now the name of his employer, so closely guarded by the butler, has become known because Elmer Battesford, the hedge fund billionaire has sued the Town of East Hampton, Hampton Subway and, in New York City, the MTA and all their executives individually and personally for $30 million dollars, claiming that his butler has every right to use the Subway since it is a public transportation facility and his removal has caused the butler personal humiliation. Hampton Subway feels this suit will be swiftly thrown out. Hampton Subway is not a public facility. It is a private company and we only allow on the property those who we wish. ASPINALL RE-ELECTED IN A LANDSLIDE The challenge of former Hampton Subway board member Henry Watson McHarrison to become the new commissioner of Hampton Subway has been swiftly defeated. The election was held. Mr. McHarrison, who was fired from the board due to his challenge and his claim of malfeasance and embezzlement, received just one vote, his own. We know this because he said he voted for himself, and there was only one vote for him. Commissioner Aspinall’s campaign slogan was “What Does a McHarrison Know About Subways Anyway?” It was quite enough. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE After the efforts of winning his swift re-election, Mr. Aspinall, who has gone on vacation to an undisclosed location, has not provided us with any message to readers this week.

Free Central Air Conditioning for 1 Year
Purchase of a Furnace at 1/2 Price. Most anyone in business has their busy and slow times. The heating and air conditioning industry is no different, and fluctuates dramatically with season and weather. Like now after the holiday season no one is looking for either air conditioner or heating. This is Doug Matz, Owner literally how it works. In the off-season the air conditioning and heating business slows down to the point where our installers are sitting around without much work. Many companies lay people off in these slow times and hope to replace their skilled workers when business picks up. This is not a good business practice and is unfair to the employees and their families.
Here’s my offer: Summary: • Purchase a premier air conditioning system and get a high efficient furnace at 1/2 price • Reduces utilities up to 40% • Free-repair warranty for up to 5 Years • The best in quality and efficiency • Financing available Plus all our systems are covered by our Exclusive 365 day 100% Unconditional Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee. So call Flanders Heating & Air Conditioning today for your free no obligation survey at 631-727-2760. This offer expires March 21, 2014
Other dealers have refused to compromise and let the public know this, but at Flanders we value our skilled workers greatly and would rather keep them busy, even if it means making little or no money. To do this, I’m going to slash the price of our first rate air conditioning and heating systems. Here’s my offer: Purchase a premier central heating and air conditioning system (furnace & air conditioner) and I’ll Give you a high efficient furnace at 1/2 the normal price.

Where Have All The Ruins Gone? Three members of an organization called Preserve Our Ruins And Derelict Buildings Dot Org were arrested for trespassing on the Bulova construction site in Sag Harbor late Wednesday. The three middle-aged women were carrying cans of spray paint and stencils bearing the name of their activist group. Using the power of deduction, the police concluded that the women were planning to “tag” the buildings on the construction site under the cover of darkness. Placed under arrest, the three activists began to struggle violently. One was heard to shout, “The character of our village has been irreparably harmed by the reckless refurbishment of what was an irreplaceable, crumbling ruin and the locating of houses on top of what was once a debrisstrewn concrete pit!” Don’t Blame The Buddha In recent weeks Shelter Island had been suffering from a rash of graffiti. Cars, boats, businesses, even some fish were “bombed” with the tag “OMM.” For a while, police suspected that the vandalism was the work of Buddhist hoodlums—they reasoned that “OMM” might have been a misspelling of the Sanskrit mantra “om”—and they began to question members of the various rival Buddhist gangs that flourish on Shelter Island. The woodsdwelling Theravadins were quick to blame the Mahayana, of course, but even after police succeeded in rounding up all of the known gang members and placing them in detention, the graffiti continued unabated. Another theory briefly entertained was that the taggings were the actions of craft-beer enthusiasts: “OMM,” in this scenario, would have been short for “Ommegang,” a well-regarded craft brewery in upstate New York. Finally, police got a break when they realized that the only structure on the island that had not been defaced was the home of Old Man McGumbus (initials O.M.M.), the 104-year-old WWII bomber pilot. A stake-out succeeded in catching McGumbus red-handed, or at least with a can of red paint in his hand. Not Zombies, Just Aimless Some Sag Harbor residents called police in alarm over the appearance Friday night of a large group of people wandering in confused circles in the vicinity of the Long Wharf. Said one frightened caller, “They just walk in circles, and they occasionally stop and stare at the entrance of the Bay Street Theatre. It’s creepy—I think they’re zombies!” When police questioned some members of the crowd, though, they discovered that they were simply fans of Nancy Atlas who couldn’t believe that her fabulous Friday night Fireside Sessions (sponsored by Dan’s Papers) were over. As reality sunk in, the crowd reluctantly dispersed. Until next winter.
You see, January through March is a slower time of the year for my company. With after holiday expenses, folks are putting off buying an air conditioner and furnace. So by helping us now we’ll pass big savings on to help you, a true win, win. With your new air conditioner and/or furnace, we will go the extra mile to give you up to 5 years parts and labor warranty against any future repair bills.
Certain restrictions apply. Pricing is subject to change without notice. Discounts not valid with any other offers or on previous purchases. See dealer for details. 24335

Einstein’s Birthday His Impact on the World and a Letter He Wrote from Here in 1939
oday is the 135th anniversary of the birth of Albert Einstein. I am sure there will be quite a bit about him in the media, given how, with his mathematical formulas, he changed our view of the world. It is possible to conjecture, however, that certain work he did during the summer he vacationed on the East End in 1939 triggered a remarkable half-century of science—including the splitting of the atom, the designing and making of a vehicle that was driven on the moon, the creation of the most advanced military aircraft in the world, explorations into genetics and DNA, even scientific explorations into the causes of animal diseases. Such activity might have gone on anywhere in America at that time. But it did not. Long Island—particularly eastern Long Island— was the center for leading-edge scientific development in the country and the world. And at the time, there was little else here other than farming and fishing. It was not known that Einstein had written his famous letter to FDR until after the Second World War ended in 1945. After that, however, it became quite famous. The smartest man on the planet, on vacation on eastern Long Island, was

urging the President to form a laboratory and create an atomic bomb to beat the Germans who were trying to beat us to it. This was something that Roosevelt had been told about. But it wasn’t until Einstein urged him on, describing the possible destruction of cities, that Roosevelt created a secret facility to get this done, not here on the East End, but in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The Germans surrendered in May of 1945. We dropped the atomic bomb on Japan that August, and one month later, they surrendered, too. Shortly after the war ended, efforts to find more uses for atomic energy, including making a bigger bomb and learning more about splitting atoms, resulted in the building of the Brookhaven National Laboratory in Yaphank, Long Island in 1947, on the site of a former army training base. The largest machine able to split atoms was built there. Called the Cyclotron, what it did became famous. Photos and articles about it were in textbooks used in high schools all around the country. Here was where efforts were underway to find out the very origins of the universe. Right through until the 1960s, the Cyclotron was where you went to study the universe in this way. But then larger atomsplitting machines were built elsewhere, and the reputation of Brookhaven (Cont’d on next page)

Einstein (Cont’d from previous page) faded. At the present time, the largest is at the CERN laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. Also during this time, the Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation, with one base in Bethpage and another in Riverhead, was building bigger, better and faster military aircraft for the Navy. Leroy Grumman had begun building warplanes in the garage next to his home on Long Island at the beginning of the Second World War. His Wildcat fighter planes and Hellcat planes fought and defeated the Japanese Zeros, which had before that time ruled the Pacific. Grumman built the F9F Panther fighter jets during the Korean War for the American aircraft carriers. And in the early 1970s, they began to produce the F-14 fighter jet, the fastest, most sophisticated and most powerful fighter plane in the world, unchallenged for the next 20 years. In 1962, the government asked Grumman to produce a vehicle that could be used to walk on the moon. Grumman built it. When, in 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin got out of their spaceship on the moon to become the first people to set foot on another celestial body, it was a Grumman lunar module that got them there. During this same era, James Watson, a prizewinning scientist and co-discoverer of the DNA double helix, became director of a laboratory in Cold Spring Harbor that had earlier been studying chromosomes and penicillin. He changed the name of the place in 1968 to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, expanded the
work it was doing to include medical research, particularly cancer research, and made important breakthroughs all through the last half of the 20th century. Further east, a laboratory to study animal diseases had been established on Plum Island, just off the tip of Orient Point. Since 1954, it has done work to find vaccines and medicines to treat mad cow disease and other animal illnesses. All during this time, local residents could see Grumman jet fighters undergoing tests overhead, and they could read about the activities at Brookhaven Lab, Cold Spring Harbor and Plum Island. Meanwhile, the government, seeing that these many high-tech facilities were exposed out on the East End to enemy attack, built great fortifications out at Montauk, Westhampton and Wading River to provide radar warnings, fighter planes and Atlas guided missiles to any approaching force. The enemy at that time was the old Soviet Union. It was a strange thing, living here during that era. Here was some of the most highly technical work in science getting done by experts in various fields. The land was otherwise peaceful, stunning and rural, with great potato fields and ponds and woods and beaches. It was not unexpected, I think, to also find here a great art colony featuring some of the greatest painters in the world. The hamlet of Springs from about 1950 to 1990 was, along with New York and Paris, one of the centers of the world for Abstract Expressionist painting.
Today, much of this is gone. The missiles have been taken out and dismantled. The Air Force base in Westhampton, which was filled with warplanes during much of this period, now is a commercial airport and a home base for a government air rescue team. Grumman is gone entirely, merged with Northrop and moved to Virginia. Its facilities in Riverhead today are used as an industrial park. Only the Grumman merry-go-round, built for the families of its employees on a picnic ground in Calverton, remains. It is now the centerpiece at the waterfront for the Village of Greenport. The Brookhaven National Lab still is here, but much reduced in importance from its heyday. Also, it has had to cope with many industrial chemicals that earlier experiments done there left in the soil. Currently it still conducts experiments on the early days of the Big Bang, but its place as the leader of the pack is gone. As for the Animal Disease Center on Plum Island, it is winding down its operation in anticipation of a possible move to a new laboratory in Kansas. The new focus on the East End is real estate and celebrities, among them P. Diddy, JLo, Christie Brinkley, Billy Joel, Alec Baldwin, Steven Spielberg and Jerry Seinfeld. Maybe it’s that times have changed so much. I think if another Einstein came along, we’d have our paparazzi follow him around to see if he does anything to embarrass himself or otherwise makes him newsworthy. Oh well.

Where Is Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road? Don’t Ask Your GPS. By Dan Rattiner
am here to report that East Hampton is on the brink of being the first town in America to have a street change its name because of a computer glitch. It was bound to happen here. The town has so many interesting street names. There’s Abrahams Path, Widow Gavit’s Road, Stephen Hands Path, Eli Brook to Hand’s Creek Road, Springs-Fireplace Road, Highway Behind the Lots. Some years ago, 19 residents of Highway Behind the Lots said that they didn’t like writing Highway Behind the Lots. They didn’t know it went back to colonial times, when people selected parcels of property by lot. They thought it was more akin to Empty Lot. Nineteen residents is pretty close to all the residents on that one-block-long road. The town took notice. There was a road called Toilsome Lane just to the west after you crossed Buell Lane. Normal names, these. The village board voted that Highway Behind the Lots should be thrown in the dumpster. That one-block Toilsome Lane would now be two blocks long and include what used to be Highway Behind the Lots. Too bad. Incidentally, after that change, the way to describe getting from the railroad station to the Montauk Highway heading west got shortened. Before the change, you’d go one block on Railroad Avenue, one block on Race Lane, one block on Gingerbread Lane, one block on Highway Behind the Lots and then two blocks on Toilsome. Each of these roads came to an end after just one block, or in the case of Toilsome, two. Now Toilsome would be three. And you’d skip Highway Behind the Lots. Where goeth charm?
I should also mention a name that was changed in Southampton Village not long ago. At one time, there were two roads named Gin Lane (named after the Old English term for a common grazing area—“gin”—not the booze), not connected to each other, that appeared twice to run along the beachfront. Gin Lane at the eastern extremity started at the Murray Compound and Old Town Road, and headed west until it ran into South Main Street. South Main Street curved west and ran down to the Southampton Bathing Corp. Then Gin Lane picked up again and ran further west along the oceanfront until its name changed to Meadow Lane, which ended at the Shinnecock Inlet.
GPS did not recognize “Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road.” That’s the name of the road. Someone had never entered the name correctly. After the change, Gin Lane ran along the ocean and met up with South Main Street, which dead-ended at Gin. Gin Lane then continued along to end at the Southampton Meadow Club, after which it was all Meadow Lane to the Inlet. They removed the second Gin Lane, and they had South Main Street end at the T of Gin Lane. Much simpler. Before all this, all the roads from Foster Crossing ran right down to the ocean. Foster Crossing was the road parallel to and closest to the beach off South Main Street. The road that is about to have its name changed because of a computer glitch is Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road. I live on this road. Write the whole thing out on my stationery.
When I first moved here, before computers, I’d tell a workman delivering a new refrigerator these words on how to get to my house. “Drive up North Main Street until you get to a fork. The right fork is Springs-Fireplace Road, the left fork is marked Three Mile Harbor Road and that’s the one you take. From that point, go exactly two miles up the road and you will see that the house numbers end at 300 and then start over from 1 a second time. My house is at 26 Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road, which is what they call the road when the numbers start going up that second time even though it is straight as an arrow.” “Got it,” the workman would say, and soon a refrigerator would arrive. When computer navigation began to arrive, I’d try to describe where I live to a refrigerator man and he’d say, “No worries, I have a GPS.” Half an hour later, he’d call me and ask where the house was. I’d ask where he was. He’d tell me he was on a street that is four miles from my house called Three Mile Harbor DRIVE. (Drive is capitalized for emphasis.) And there is no 26. GPS did not recognize “Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road.” That’s the name of the road. Somebody, perhaps working for $1 a day in India, had never entered the name of this road correctly. And these problems continued on. Things sent by UPS went to this destination four miles away. Also during this time, another odd thing happened. One day I got a letter in the mail informing me that I had a new house number. It would be 28, not 26. I could not understand why they did this. But they did it. Somebody had moved in between 1 and 26 and needed a new number, so they shoved everybody up two. In any case, as it has turned out, there may not be a house at (Cont’d on next page)
Page 22 March 14, 2014
Glitch (Continued from previous page) 26 Three Mile Harbor Drive, but there IS a house at 28 Three Mile Harbor Drive. And this person was now getting my UPS parcels, my refrigerator men and, sometimes, my mail. For example, I found that even though I told AT&T that my address was 28 Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road, their computer changed it to Three Mile Harbor Drive. Some smartass thought that since there was no Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Road, then this address should have been 28 Three Mile Harbor Drive. (Note: There is no house at 28 Three Mile Harbor Road.) In any case, I have found a workaround. If you abbreviate the Hog Creek to HC, the computer will agree that is my house and direct things to
me at that address. THAT is what the internet thinks is the name of my street. And now I have started using it. And I found neighbors who have started using it. And I know where this is going. The sign on our street reads Three Mile Harbor Hog Creek Rd. I think sometime during this coming year, that sign will come down and a new one will be put up reading Three Mile Harbor HC Road. And people will ask “What does HC stand for?” and I will say, “Hacked Computer. But just abbreviate it to HC. It’s too stupid for words.” And thus the first road in America ever changed because of a computer glitch will be right here in East Hampton.

Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon continues to wallow in awesomeness! Theresa Caputo, star of TLC’s Long Island Medium, shot scenes for the popular psychic show at the Suffolk Country Correctional Facility in Riverhead last week. This was the second time camera crews descended on the local jail in the past month; Orange Is the New Black, the hit Netflix series, also filmed there recently. Chef Kerry Heffernan is featured in the new Hamptons TV show Seafood Safari— see story on page 45. The Annual Hamptons Restaurant Polka is in full swing: Construction of Citarella’s new Southampton locale is nearing completion. Schmidt’s Market in Southampton remodeled its deli and salad bar areas last week, making it even easier to overindulge! The new owners of Sag Harbor’s popular sandwich shop Espresso are mum on their plans; word on the street is it will be transformed in the late summer. Sag Harbor’s iconic Il Capuccino Ristorante reopens following its annual winter break on March 14. Nammos in Southampton plans to open in midApril, weather permitting. The Spiro’s building on County Road 39 in Southampton is still on the market. East Hampton hotspot Andrra is being transformed into Bay Kitchen Bar under chef Eric Miller (most recently of Madison & Main). Rumor has it that Osteria Salina in Bridgehampton will be expanding…Big news on the North Fork: Chef Tom Schaudel will open “The Petulant Wino” in the former Comtesse Therese space in Aquebogue. Other “foodie bits:” Yes that was none other than cartoonist Gahan Wilson shopping in East Hampton on Sunday. Tom Colicchio’s monthly farmers market at the Topping Rose House (TRH) in Bridgehampton runs for a third time this Saturday, March 15. It has become quite the foodie mecca. Last month Chef Jean Cuddy Peretz (in a becoming triple strand of turquoise beads) chatted with empanada queen Luchi Masliah as East Hampton Gourmet Chef/Owner Michel Mazuret told cheesemaker Art Ludlow that he was about to leave to go wind surfing off the coast of Venezuela while TRH Chef de Cuisine Ty Kotz had an animated conversation with Fresh Hampton Chef/Owner Todd Jacobs. During the lunch rush at the Tuscan House in Southampton last Thursday, a beautiful woman was heard to remark that she’d been stood up by Hampton Sun king Salvatore Piazzolla. He’s a very busy man what with the launch of Hampton Sun “For Baby!” new sunblock for kids and their Airbrush Bronzing Mist.

Still Doing It The Long Island Rail Road and the Ongoing Problem of Disabilties By Dan Rattiner
n 2008, when the economy went south, many private businesses and government organizations looked at their retirement policies to see if they could do a little belt tightening. For those that did not do this themselves, there were eager reporters. The New York Times, for example, reported that “virtually every career employee” of the Long Island Rail Road applied for, got and was collecting full disability payments after retiring early. Many had apparently gone to doctors with false claims such as those of one man who said he had disabilities that “made it hard for him to sit, stand, walk, dress himself, bathe himself or hold a pen for any length of time.” Soon thereafter, photos of disabled railroad retirees, with names, appeared in the news, showing them golfing, and there were reports of them doing things, going to the gym, biking or enjoying other vigorous activities in such places as Florida. It was a miracle. No it wasn’t. In the end, in 2013 (the wheels of justice grind slowly), government investigators ordered the immediate termination of benefits for more than 700 LIRR retirees who had gone to two “recommended” doctors who’d pronounced them disabled. They had done wrong and they deserved this. Then 33 people, including the two doctors, were hit with criminal charges and were either convicted or pleaded guilty
and some went to jail; 44 others avoided prosecution by admitting their role in the fraud and voluntarily renouncing their disability payments. All together, about $400 million in railroad benefits have been forfeited or returned. Last month, a special federal watchdog, Martin J. Dickman, the Inspector General of the U.S. Railroad Retirement Board (USRRB), revealed that, five years later, things are still far from all right here in Long Island Rail Road land.
In the end, in 2013, government investigarors ordered the immediate termination of benefits for more than 700 LIRR retirees. Of the 700 former workers who had been “approved” by the two doctors and had their disability terminated, nearly 500 have reapplied, he noted. At the present time, he reports, roughly 96% of those who apply are still approved. “I find it inconceivable and unacceptable that the R.R.B. plans on utilizing the same division disability claims examiner structure which had ineptly adjudicated applications through the duration of the LIRR fraud scheme,” he wrote. A spokesman for the MTA, which oversees the LIRR, said, after this study came out, that
the MTA “shares the Railroad Retirement Board inspector general’s outrage over the continued mismanagement of the program,” and that “the LIRR has fully cooperated with federal and local authorities into the investigation of those who have abused the system.” It should be pointed out that neither the MTA nor the LIRR decides who gets disability. That is done by this Railroad Retirement Board, a three-person federally appointed board in Chicago, whose staff reviews applications from around the country. But does that not mean that the LIRR or the MTA should not know what was going on? The chairman of the RRB, Michael S. Schwartz, disputed the federal watchdog’s report. He said all applicants get reviewed based on new and current medical evidence, with special cases reviewed by those trained “in fraud awareness.” He also pointed out that disability applications for the LIRR declined by 38% between 2010 and 2012. In 2010, however, the start of this comparison, the scandal was already nationally known and well under investigation. Mr. Dickman, the writer of the report, says he will recommend that the disability program for the whole federal Railroad Retirement Board be either terminated or severely cut back if changes are not made quickly. His report, together with Mr. Schwartz’s response, now goes to Congress for further action.

Southampton Oyster Hatchery to Improve Local Bays By brendan j. o’reilly
B. J. O’Reilly
o lunteers from varied nonprofit groups plus individuals who just wanted to lend a hand got together at Conscience Point in North Sea on March 1 to help complete an oyster hatchery aimed at restoring the ecological health of local bays by removing excess algae. The Conscience Point Shellfish Hatchery, sited on land owned by the Southampton Historical Museum, is managed by Ship 908, a local unit of the Sea Scouts, which is a branch of the Boy Scouts of America. Two years ago, Sea Scouts raised 120,000 oysters at Conscience Point, Ship 908 Skipper Josh Belury told a crowd of volunteers. Then last year they raised the same amount of oysters plus 350,000 clams.

“What we really need to be doing is growing an oyster reef,” Belury said. “Oyster reefs take care of themselves.” The Sea Scouts would like to use their oyster hatchery to create artificial reefs. Free-swimming oysters are vulnerable to predators—such as blue claw crabs, which can eat 40 oysters a day—but oysters in reefs are fortified, Belury explained. An individual oyster filters algae from five gallons of water every hour, so three reefs of 1 million oysters each could filter every drop of water in North Sea Harbor every 24 hours, he said. Ship 908 and the Moriches Bay Project—the Moriches Bay Project is an aquatic restoration program created in 2013 by the West Hampton
Long Island Pool & Spa
Dunes Barrier Beach Association—organized the work day, which drew volunteers from the Daughters of the American Revolution, Hampton Bays Boy Scout Troop 483 and Venturing Crew 728, plus Girl Scouts and students from area schools. Volunteers took a break from work for the dedication of the First Coastal Algae Room. First Coastal is a Westhampton Beach-based company that provides environmental services focused on the waterfront. The company donated toward the climate-controlled algae room inside the hatchery, where three different kinds of algae will be cultivated to feed oysters during their development from larvae to spat.

sia’s first-ever exhibition of steampunk art and design opened in Seoul, South Korea last week and Southampton artist and lighting designer Art Donovan is playing a key role. A longtime steampunk artist and curator of the world’s first major exhibition of the genre at the Museum of the History of Science at Oxford University in 2009, Donovan was tapped as supervisor and co-curator of this new show, Steampunk Art Unfurled: Art of Victorian Futurism, which opened March 8 at the Artcenter IDA, in Seoul’s Hangaram Art Museum. After an 18-hour flight, he arrived in South Korea on March 5 and began the hard work of setting up for opening weekend. “You should see this place,” the East End artist beamed in a message, noting that the Artcenter spared no expense to present its vision of steampunk, the Victorian Era inspired, techno-industrial art and design movement. The ambitious exhibition—for which he wrote nearly all the descriptions and catalogue materials—features an entire gallery dedicated to Donovan’s steampunk lighting creations and sketches, as well as rooms with pieces by steampunk-influenced artists from China, France, the Netherlands, Greece, Italy, Japan, Australia and the U.S. Works on display include painting, sculpture, graphic design, fashion, motorized vehicles, jewelry and digital art. “I was packing for seven straight days,” Donovan says, explaining that he sent the
museum every steampunk-inspired piece in his home and studio before heading there with his wife, Leslie. Adding to the challenge, he had to rewire all of his illuminated works for 220 voltage, to be compatible with Korean electricity. “I’m really jealous of the people with paintings and jewelry,” Donovan joked. The artist, honored to be such an integral part of this landmark exhibition, said the show’s organizers have been nothing but enthusiastic about steampunk. “They had never even seen anything like that,” he said. “They are so enthralled by culture.” Donovan, who has published two books about steampunk (The Art of Steampunk and a Revised Second Edition), used his existing relationships to secure most of the artists for the show. And it was this previous connection with the artists, along with his own experiences, that helped him scribe the catalogue and other supporting text. He will also give the exhibition’s keynote address and four lectures on the history of steampunk art, its influences and practitioners. Steampunk Art Unfurled: Art of Victorian Futurism features a number of steampunk artists from both the landmark Oxford University show and Donovan’s books, including Sam Van Olffen, Tom Banwell, Kris Kuksi and Jos De Vink, but Donovan says he’s the only one likely to attend the exhibition. While a host of artists are currently making work that fits the steampunk vision, Donovan stands out as the foremost cultural ambassador of the genre and its many facets, spanning visual

art, design and much more. The Seoul effort marks Donovan’s third steampunk exhibition, following The World’s First Steampunk Exhibition at Bridgehampton’s Hamptons Antique Galleries in 2008 and, of course, the groundbreaking show at Oxford University. In South Korea, Donovan will be discussing steampunk and its roots in both the Victorian and science fiction aesthetics, but for this exhibition his approach was more physical than intellectual. “It’s about the visual impact more so than the historical reference,” Donovan says, describing the South Koreans’ interest in steampunk. However, he notes, “They love technology—their technology is a big part of it.” And steampunk is nothing if not a marriage between art and technology. Visit donovandesign.com to learn more.

This Week’s Cover Artist: Barry Rockwell By oliver peterson
At first glance, this week’s cover, “Smarties” by Brookhaven artist Barry Rockwell, is a well-drafted painting of legendary physicist and North Forker Albert Einstein. A longer look finds the scientist to be holding a small package of Smarties candy—and the artist’s wry wit is revealed. The piece is emblematic of Rockwell’s larger body of work featuring humorous juxtapositions of historical figures and/or famous works of art with product packaging. Take for example his reproduction of a 16th century corridor portrait of doomed queen Anne Boleyn, an Oh Henry! chocolate bar in her hand. Considering her husband (and the man who ordered her execution) was King Henry VIII, the joke is clear—and quite droll. Other paintings include an iconic Frida Kahlo self-portrait with a bag of Fritos corn chips, a zaftig Botero nude dressing behind a tub of Ben & Jerry’s “Chunky Monkey” ice cream, and a wild-eyed Beethoven, furiously writing music while staring at a pile of dirty dishes and a bottle of Joy dish detergent. A former advertising illustrator, Rockwell is a master draftsman and a sharp humorist who puts his years of commercial experience to good use in the realm of fine art. Over the last decade he has spoofed da Vinci, Rousseau, Dali, Klimt and a host of masters, along with sundry famous faces. “Smarties” is not his first Einstein painting. You’ve painted Einstein at least twice before. I know I’ve done Einstein with Marshmallow Fluff and Smarties, of course—I don’t know if I can think of another one, but there may be one out there. So, Smarties is an obvious connection there, but what was the connection with the Fluff? Einstein may be the opposite of “Fluff.” Some of your paintings spoof artists, others are more about the historical figure. Do you
generally find yourself choosing one or the other more, or is it better when they intersect? It would be nice if they intersected more often. Things pop in, they come up—whatever inspires me at the moment. It’s difficult to say whether I’ve done more artists or more products. How did you start doing these particular pieces ? I had bought an old house in Northport and I needed something to go over the fireplace, and I was into doing portraits in my spare time. I was also working on a Kellogg’s account at the time and they were famous for All-Bran, so I did this sort of primitive, naïve style of this maybe Quaker-looking fellow with a bowl of AllBran and the package, and everybody sort of liked that…I left that hanging over the fireplace for years. Then when computers came in and I found the advertising business a bit more difficult to catch up with, I started to do a lot of illustration work, probably about 20 years ago. I looked at this painting and thought, you know, I already have this sort of background in products through advertising, and maybe this was a shtick I could get into, so I carried on. I went into doing the Fruit Loops and the Animal Crackers, and they seemed rather successful and people seemed to like them and buy them, and away we went. You have a lot of things people can connect to, nostalgically or whether it be a figure… you know, Frida Kahlo for Frida Kahlo fans. You have a lot for people to grab onto, which is fun. Sometimes it’s difficult…I got a commission from a lawyer who wanted a painting of a Supreme Court justice, and he wanted to connect it with his favorite drink, which was Mountain Dew. It was trying to figure out how to put these two things together and make the connection. Fortunately, I came up with a title, which was “Dew Process.” If it’s not a commission, do you find yourself smacked with inspiration, or do you tend to sit and flip through art history books and look at products or whatever and try to come
up with ideas, or is it more like, you happen to be looking at a painting of Anne Boleyn and then say, “Oh, God, of course—the Oh Henry! candy bar!” Yeah, sometimes it happens like that, or…I think I had done something really stupid one time and my wife came over—I think it was just Halloween or something and we had leftover candies there—and she threw a Smarties at me and said, “Maybe these will help?” And then Einstein came into my mind, and you got that painting (this week’s cover). You’re sort of from a long tradition of commercial artists crossing over and adapting their skills into fine art. When did you start working as a painter versus being in advertising? Years ago when computers were making their inroads to the advertising world; I found I wasn’t adept at making a connection to computers too well. Were a lot of the old guard going out in the industry at that time? Yeah, but a lot of my colleagues were able to adapt and go onto the computer, and I think they’re still working at it. I found it very awkward. I thought, if I have to do this, there’s got to be something better. Tell me about this Einstein painting. There was that actual incident when the Smarties were presented to me in a moment of stupidity, and I thought, you know, maybe I could use these for something? It wasn’t too far a reach to go right to the smartest man of the last century, and I came up with Einstein and the Smarties and put them together. It was an easy image to do. Einstein is all over the place, so I didn’t have any trouble finding a photograph of him to work from. Anything coming up next, any new shows? I just got a commission from someone who has one of my Conquisto-Doritoes. Are you open to showing out here again? The this point pretty much all my work is spoken for before it goes out. I never find myself with a dozen paintings, saying, “Ah, I have to find a gallery for this stuff.” Generally everything I paint has a place to go. That’s not a bad problem to have. No, I just wish I could paint a little faster.

Cleansing Your Spirit for Springtime By kelly laffey
A friend asked last week, “Is this coming daylight saving that good one or the bad one?” “The good one!” I responded, as someone else replied with the opposite assertion. On Sunday, we lost an hour. We overslept and then fell asleep before we got everything we needed to get done, done. But the sun set an hour later than it did on Saturday. And because of that, I maintain that spring daylight savings is the most underrated day of the year. Another sign of spring—Ash Wednesday was last week, signifying the start of Lent. In observing the Lenten season, it’s Christian tradition to either give something up or to add something meaningful to your life. But, I know quite a few secular people who observe the tradition of Lent as well. Lent provides a finite period of time to attempt to better yourself, and anyone can get on board with that. This year, I’m going with the “add”—to add organization to my life. And, as a side cleanse that will drastically improve office relations, I’m also going to give up making fun of New Jersey. Though I tell jokes in jest, I think that Dan’s Papers art director Tina Guiomar will appreciate the effort. It’s a New York thing; and if we want people to stop telling us that Long Island wine belongs in a waste treatment plant (we didn’t forget, Netflix), we have to first pay it forward. As a community, there are quite a few things that East Enders should give up over the 40 days: 1. Complaining about the weather 2. Complaining about traffic 3. Making excuses for not going to the gym 4. Thinking about going to yoga class 5. Talking about going to a spin class 6. Talking instead of doing 7. Pretending you go to Montauk much more than you do 8. Forgetting that there are hiking trails in Montauk 9. Facebook stalking 10. Posting photos solely to count how many people “like” them 11. Refreshing a website more times than you take a refreshing walk outside 12. Thinking that all carbs are the enemy 13. Not setting goals 14. Re-reading an email too many times before you hit Send 15. Not re-reading an email enough times before you hit Send 16. Telling people that the East End is Red Sox territory 17. Not going to a local winery on the weekend 18. Engaging in misguided arguments in the comment section of internet articles 19. Bad grammar 20. Spelling Hamptons “Hampton’s”
21. Cutting people off while driving 22. Not driving 35 mph on CR-39 23. Pretending that Hampton Road is two lanes in each direction 25. Spelling Southampton “South Hampton” 26. Calling Bridgehampton “Bridge” 27. Grocery shopping the Friday before a holiday weekend 28. Not using blinkers 29. Referring to the summer as “The 100 Day War” 30. Refusing to go into the city during the summer months 31. Pretending that you don’t ever need a break. 32. Not going to the beach in the winter
33. Using electronics on the beach 34. Putting the air conditioner up so high that if it was actually that cold outside, you’d put on the heat 35. Not cooking at home 36. Thinking that going out is always better than staying in 37. Spending a sunny day at the movies 38. Pretending you’ve heard about that band/ artist/author that you haven’t 39. Not being spontaneous 40. Being embarrassed What time is it? I’ve put in a full workday, and it’s still light enough to go for a run? Don’t mind if I do…

New Website Helps Build Community Garden on Long Island THE INTERWEBS: The Suffolk County Food Policy Council, Sustainable Long Island and Stony Brook University Family Medicine have put together a new website for establishing and sustaining community gardens as an educational tool and a way to help Long Islanders eat healthy. The Long Island Community Gardens website, at longislandcommunitygardens. org, provides a locator for existing community gardens plus resources on starting a garden from scratch. On the East End, there are community gardens at the Shinnecock Indian Reservation, at Hampton Bays Middle School, in Montauk, Riverhead, Southold and New Suffolk. The website can help pick a proper location and give info on readying the soil for a successful garden, and a calendar lists ideal planting times plus gardening events and lectures. “Not only will [the website] provide information on how to create and maintain your own garden, but it will offer ideas on expanding access to healthy, affordable food options. In creating this resource, our hope is that it will inspire the public to get outdoors more,” Erin Thoresen, the senior program coordinator at Sustainable Long Island and chair of the Suffolk County Food Policy Council’s Food Equity Subcommittee, said in a statement.
Pi Day Friday EAST END: Pi Day is on Friday, March 14. The date celebrates the mathematical constant of pi, which, in shortened form, is 3.14. Expanded out, pi equates to 3.141 59265358979323846264338327950 288419… Or, more appropriately, to a delicious, circular sweet. Plan to celebrate Pi Day with a pie. Incidentally, Albert Einstein was born on March 14. See Dan’s story on Einstein’s time in Southold on page 19.
Deer Advocates Block DEC from Issuing New Permits for Cull EAST END: A coalition of groups opposed to the ongoing deer cull on the East End obtained an injunction from a New York State Supreme Court judge in Albany on March 6, temporarily barring the state Department of Environmental Conservation from issuing any more deer damage permits in Suffolk County. The DEC has issued 12 deer damage permits—also called nuisance permits—in the towns of Southampton, Southold and East Hampton, and at least six more permits for the cull were pending, according to a DEC spokeswoman last Friday. Also, the DEC issued 500 deer tags, which are required for each deer “taken,” i.e. killed. At least until both sides meet at the next court date March 28, the DEC is prohibited from granting any more deer damage permits for the Long Island Farm Bureau–sponsored cull, which is being carried out by U.S. Department of Agriculture sharpshooters. The agency also may not issue permits on North Haven, where the village has its own cull planned using the wildlife management firm White Buffalo. Deer damage permits are available to landowners whose property and vegetation are being destroyed by deer. The permits allow for shooting of deer outside of hunting season, and the permits are typically restricted to antlerless deer only. With the USDA’s involvement, the hired shooters are allowed to use a number of techniques not available to average hunters on Long Island, such as baiting, shooting at night and use of rifles. The groups that successfully sought the injunction are the Wildlife Preservation Coalition of Eastern Long Island, the Animal Welfare Institute, Long Island Orchestrating for Nature, the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center and Hunters for Deer. In his decision, Judge Joseph C. Teresi wrote that it appears the petitioners are likely to succeed on the merits of their claims and that the DEC’s actions will cause them “immediate and irreparable injury” if the DEC is not “immediately restrained.” The petitioners claim the DEC failed to comply with the State Environmental Quality Review Act and that the agency must conduct an environmental assessment and an environmental impact statement on the effects of the “large-scale cull.” “It’s good to see that Judge Teresi is able to see through the wall of secrecy that runs rampant through the DEC,” said Hunters for Deer founder Michael Tessitore, who was also individually named among the petitioners. He said the DEC needs to be held accountable, and he also questioned why the Long Island Farm Bureau has a hand in deer management policies. Among the reasons given for the cull are deer’s carrying of ticks that spread Lyme disease, deer-versus-vehicle accidents and—the reason closest to the Long Island Farm Bureau—damage to crops. Tessitore said he has many questions regarding the cull and he has been unable to get any answers from the DEC, the USDA and the farm bureau. One thing he has been trying to find out is what’s happening to all of the deer that have been taken by the sharpshooters. While it has been said that the deer are being donated to food pantries, Tessitore said, no one has been able to verify where the deer are going. Hunters for Deer became involved in opposing the cull because it favors loosening hunting restrictions in order to allow hunters to take more deer. The group also does not believe taxpayer dollars should be used to take deer that belong to the people of Long Island. In a case of strange bedfellows, Hunters for Deer is working hand-inhand with animal advocates, many of whom are opposed to any hunting whatsoever. “All of my guys have evolved from this process, realizing the importance of being conservationists,” Tessitore said of his group. Plus, he said animal rights advocates have evolved, realizing that hunting is here to stay and that it is needed to manage a deer herd. Now, his group is working on a venison distribution plan and a program to match landowners with ethical hunters. “We believe in management, not a massacre,” he said.
Suffolk County Golf Fee Reductions Made Permanent for Veterans SUFFOLK COUNTY: The Suffolk County Legislature has unanimously approved legislation to make discounted golf fees for veterans and active military personnel permanent. This resolution, sponsored by Deputy Presiding Officer Jay Schneiderman, expands the pilot program, set to expire March 11. Schneiderman introduced legislation that established the pilot program, which charged military veterans golfing fees at Suffolk County courses equivalent to those paid by senior citizens, in 2012. “This is one small way we can show our appreciation to the men and women of the armed forces,” Schneiderman says. Suffolk County Parks has four golf courses, including Indian Island Golf Course in Riverhead, as well as Bergen Point Golf Course in Babylon, Timber Point Golf Course in Great River and the West Sayville Golf Course. The legislation now moves to Steve Bellone for his signature. Suffolk veterans can contact the Parks Department at 631-854-4949 or go to county park locations where green keys are sold with proper proof of residency.
Suffolk County to Create Tick Control Advisory Committee SUFFOLK COUNTY: During its March 4 meeting, the Suffolk County Legislature unanimously passed a resolution creating a tick control advisory committee. Sponsored by Suffolk County Deputy Presiding Officer Jay Schneiderman, the resolution creates a 12-member committee to advise the county’s division of vector control on developing a plan to reduce tick-borne illnesses in Suffolk County. “This committee will help Vector Control develop a plan to reduce the incidence of tick borne illnesses,” said Schneiderman, who has historically been an advocate for tick awareness.

Yoga instructors generally make it abundantly They laugh, they talk, they work on balancing poses clear that you get points for showing up and that and get a lot of positive feedback.

An East End Summer Camp for Every Kid
ummer is almost here! Sort of… but it’s never too early to start planning for your kid’s camp experience, and the East End offers much in the way of summer fun. Below is a sampling of camp options.
The Art Farm is a 10-acre farm in Bridgehampton with sports fields, a gym and classrooms. The summer camps span a wide variety of programs, and kids are grouped by age—6 months to 4 years; 4 and 5 years; 6 and 7 years; and 8 to 15 years. Younger campers will explore music classes and playtime, and children will enjoy sports and outdoor adventures, as they get older. The Art Farm’s fun elective options include computers, woodshop, horseback riding, photography, skateboarding, media and film, kayaking and swimming. Enjoy structured freedom with “Camp my Way,” where kids are allowed more freedom in choosing how they spend their day. All programs foster friendships and encourage campers

to develop wide-ranging skills. Shuttle service pickup and drop-off is available. Camp begins June 30. If your child is a budding chef, he or she may enjoy Taste Buds Kitchen. Back for another year in the Hamptons, Taste Buds Kitchen invites kids to make two to three recipes a week, as they learn the basics of being in the kitchen. Older campers can tackle advanced techniques and culinary challenges. Visit theartfarm.org for information on Taste Buds Kitchen, Camp My Way and other specific camp programs. Now in its 46th year, Brookhaven Country Day Camp puts the emphasis on fun. Located on 24 acres and a mile-long lake in Yaphank—perfect for kayaking, paddle boating and row boating—the camp creates an environment where campers will feel a sense of belonging, gain self esteem, learn life skills and develop relationships that will last a lifetime. Facilities include four pools, soccer fields, basketball courts, arts and crafts studios, a gymnastics studio, playgrounds, an archery range, an indoor hockey arena, a nature area and petting zoo, tennis courts and something referred to as a GaGa Arena—check with Brookhaven to learn more about that! Daily activities in sports, the arts, nature and boating are enhanced with “special events” throughout the camp experience. Camp starts on June 30 and runs through August 22. Camp hours are 9:15 a.m.–3:45 p.m. Door to door transportation is available. Before and after care is also provided as early as 7:15 a.m. and as late as 5:45 p.m. The camp is open to preschoolers through ninth graders, and “senior” campers, those in grades 4–9, are invited to choose the activities that they will participate in each week.

A Guide to East End Summer Day Trips
veryone loves the beach, but there’s way more to do in the summer on the East End than swim, surf and sunbathe. North Fork or South, there is fun to be had, and you just may learn something. Here are a few hot spots that make great day trips for kids and families. Just north of Bridgehampton, the Children’s Museum of the East End, or CMEE, is the perfect place to play and have fun while learning about what makes Long Island’s East End great. The museum’s mission is to promote learning through play and features a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, exhibits, performances, workshops and events. CMEE welcomes more than 45,000 visitors each year, and in addition to their many classes and workshops, their more popular attractions include an outdoor amphitheater for music, plays and puppet shows, a year-round “drop-in” art class, a musical forest and, new for this summer, a putt-putt course that teaches concepts in math and physics. The museum is recommended for families with children up to 10 years old and is open Wednesday through Monday from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. For more information, and to check their calendar, visit cmee.org. If you’re looking for something a little bit more wild, then a day at The Animal Farm Petting Zoo in Manorville may be just the thing. The Animal Farm Petting Zoo has been a fixture on the East End for more than 30 years, and it is brimming with interactive animal attractions. The Animal Farm features a variety of animals, including a camel, wallabies, parrots, llamas, deer, bobcats and monkeys, and many more. Kids can enjoy pony rides, bottle-feeding baby animals and a ride on the safari tour train. The
Animal Farm is also home to The Long Island Zoological Society Zoo Rescue Program. The Zoo Rescue program takes in abused, neglected and unwanted animals to rehabilitate, and when possible, adopt them out. More than 75% of the animals at The Animal Farm were acquired through their rescue efforts. Located right off Sunrise Highway exit 59, The Animal Farm Petting Zoo will reopen this spring. For more information, visit afpz.org. For a more relaxing summer getaway, why not a trip to Orient Beach State Park at the end of the North Fork? This National Natural Landmark, which is home to a rare maritime forest of red cedar, black-jack oak and pricklypear cactus, features several miles of hiking and biking trails, as well as a concession stand, bathhouse, playground, pavilions and picnic sites. The long, narrow park extends into the waters between Long Beach Bay and Gardiners Bay and has a canoe and kayak launch area where visitors can rent kayaks. The park’s large saltwater marsh is host to a variety of birds, including great blue herons, egrets, black crowned night herons and osprey, making it the ideal place for bird-watching and to teach children about nature.
Orient Beach State Park, located off Route 25 in Orient, is open from 8 a.m. to sunset from Memorial Day to Labor Day and accepts the Empire Passport. For more information call 631-323-2440. For an outdoor adventure on the South Fork, Montauk’s Camp Hero has a lot to offer. The 415-acre park features a mix of wooded areas, ocean beaches, freshwater wetlands and an historic military installation, as well as several trails ideal for a day of hiking, biking and horseback riding. Picnic space is available at Camp Hero, but swimming is not permitted, and fishing is by permit only. The park, located off Montauk Highway in Montauk, is open from sunrise to sunset and accepts the Empire Passport. For more information, call 631-668-3781. Just a few minutes east of Camp Hero, at the very end of Long Island, is the Montauk Point Lighthouse, one of the East End’s most famous attractions, making a trek to the end of the South Fork a great day-trip for the whole family. This historic landmark, the oldest lighthouse in New York State, features a museum, gift shop and tours and is open daily starting May 5.

Hard (to Resist) Cider in at Woodside in Aquebogue By debbie slevin
t’s the first Saturday in March, and the traffic on Route 25 in Aquebogue is heavy. Height-ofthe-season heavy. The air is biting cold and the car heater is doing double time waiting to make the turn into the crowded parking lot at Woodside Orchards Hard Cidery. Folks are bundled up with hats and mittens, coming and going from the rustic red farmhouse tasting room. They must be sipping something good. Woodside is warming up weekends during this extraordinarily cold winter with their European style hard cider and it’s hard to find a spot at the bar. “Our cider is dry, crisp and clean compared to American styles which are sweeter and higher in sugar,” says Bob Gammon who owns the business with his brother, Scott. “And it has all the benefits of eating an apple…without the fiber.” The brothers, who grew up in Laurel and still live locally, know all about the benefits of eating apples. It’s a family thing: Gammon has fond memories of going upstate in autumn for apple picking when he was a kid. When his father was ready to retire from his precision instrument repair company, he came up with a plan for what he thought would be a retirement hobby. He bought property in Jamesport in the ’80s to grow apples and sell them wholesale. With 4,000 trees, the orchard quickly became too demanding for one person. Scott, with a background in agriculture-related studies signed on to help and

Bob followed soon after, happily leaving corporate America behind. In 2003 they added the Aquebogue property with the idea of replicating the U-pick experience for Long Islanders. “It’s worked well for us,” says Gammon. “We were realizing good revenue from September through Thanksgiving. The rest of the year the property sat idle waiting for the next crop.” With a business model based on having “95% of what we sell either grown or manufactured on site” the Gammons were looking for something that would compliment their business without competing with neighboring businesses. “I was playing volleyball with one of the winemakers, talking about extending the season,” says Gammon, “and we talked about apple wine and hard cider.” With apples available seven months of the year, and requiring only four to six weeks from fermentation tank to keg, the idea seemed viable. It took a year and a half to secure their liquor license. During that time they experimented. “We Googled all these different recipes…One would smell beautiful, but tasted horrible. The next one tasted great but stunk. [Eventually] we took 10 carboys (large, narrow-necked containers) and put one variety in each carboy. We learned the traits of each apple. That gave us the starting point to develop the recipes we have now.”

Cherry Poppin’ Daddies Swing into Riverhead
n Friday, March 21, the Suffolk Theater will present the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies in a salute to the music of the Rat Pack. While the name of the 23-year-old band may not sound familiar, you’ll likely know their 1997 smash hit “Zoot Suit Riot,” a modern swing single that penetrated the Billboard charts and earned an MTV Video Music Awards nomination. “It was a total surprise,” says founder/lead singer Steve Perry of the song’s rise to popularity. “We didn’t think people would respond to xit9.125 on the DAN’S Paper JR VERTICAL 6.187
radio. We had horns...we always got [paired with] ska bands. We toured for years with a ska band. I think after the song, people have a misconception about what we do.” While “Zoot Suit Riot” rocketed the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies to stardom, Perry was nervous the jazzy song’s popularity would water down the band’s ska roots and force them to change their edgy image. “After the hit came, we wanted to make the next record more of what we were,” Perry explains. “We knew we’d be banished to the wayback machine; it wasn’t going to work. So there was a period of that.”

But Perry realized over time that the Daddies could still maintain their unique sound and find success in the mainstream. “As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that compromise is not a dirty word…The weird thing about the [swing] material is that young people really react to it,” he says, noting that the majority of the audience is “not so much people from that era—they’re old and might remember it from their youth.” Young people have come to enjoy the retro flavor of the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies’ music. “First of all, it’s great music. What’s not to like?” Perry says. “And I think that our audience really appreciates it; it’s in the retro world, it’s not computers, it’s people really playing, the music is smart and the ideas are universal.” Audiences at the Suffolk Theater can look forward to an eclectic mix of genre and style from the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies. Their new album, Please Return the Evening, is a tribute to the Rat Pack. Perry, who has always been a fan of that era, decided to do a tribute-style album after realizing how well audiences responded to it at concerts. “It’s 15 songs. Over the years, we’ve played more rockin’ shows and people would sort of get out of hand, so we’d play ‘I Got You Under My Skin’ to calm them down,” he laughs. “It was interesting to see everyone [in the band] try a different style. For a small band, to mock up the sound to do big band...it sounds really great. We’ve [gradually] added more of that material into our set. We’ll play dancing stuff then stuff with a slower tempo, more showtune-like. It works seamlessly.” Perry notes that the Daddies will also play some of their older songs, like “Zoot Suit Riot,” and hopes audiences take to all of their material. “People come up to me and say, ‘wow, that brought me back’ and ‘I didn’t know what to expect when I saw you guys.’ For instance, we have this song that’s a high-speed punk rock swing tune about a kid who’s getting beaten by his father; it’s more rockin’ than the swing music. But then right after, we’ll follow up with ‘Fly Me to the Moon.’ Not only do they like classic sound and arrangement, they also understand that the first tune was a choice. We can do both.” Perry hopes audiences will let loose and have fun at the concert. “We’re a dance band, so dancers are definitely welcome,” he T exclaims. here”

Movies... Enemy Not for the squeamish, Enemy stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Bellport’s Isabella Rossellini in a house-ofmirrors-type story that will either pleasingly thrill you or cause you to run screaming in terror for the exit. The film, a Canadian import, has Gyllenhaal as a rumpled professor in a Toronto of anonymous poured-concrete high-rise apartments and bleak plazas that look like they sprang straight from the mind of Le Corbusier. It only stands to reason that, in this filmic world of duplicate buildings, some of those duplicate buildings might contain duplicate people. What does it all mean? U Want Me 2 Kill Him? I know what you’re thinking. Prince Rogers Nelson (aka Prince or TAFKAP) has gotten back into making films to mark the 30th anniversary of Purple Rain. I hate to break it to you, but the Purple Prince of St. Rebus is not behind U Want Me 2 Kill Him, nor does the movie seem to offer any cold-blooded tracks to fire up the dance floor. On the contrary, the only things cold-blooded in this film are the English schoolboys who have it murderously out for a friend’s violent, abusive hoodlum boyfriend. Of course, they’re in way over their heads. A British film brought to us, not by The Artist, but by the same people who brought us The Usual Suspects and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. Bad Words Jason Bateman directs and stars in the spelling bee-
based farce Bad Words. In search of some semblance of triumph in his life, 40-year-old Guy Trilby (Bateman) takes advantage of a loophole in the rules in order to enter and win junior high school spelling bees. Mean-spirited and contemptuous of his young rivals, Trilby becomes the shameless scourge of spelling bees, that most nerdy and innocent of all competitive events. Naturally, this does not make him popular—with anyone. That is, except for with 10-year-old Chaitanya, a tiny competitor whom Trilby befriends. Chaitanya becomes Trilby’s sidekick in creating nuisance and havoc. Bad Words promises to be a cheerful frolic through the fields of crude taste and gratuitous mischief: let’s hope it lives up to its promise. The Right Kind Of Wrong The Right Kind Of Wrong is a modern take on screwball comedy. A failed writer, played by Ryan Kwanten, who has suffered no end of emasculation and humiliation from his cruel wife, falls head-overheels in love with his perfect woman, played by Sara Canning. Trouble is, this love at first sight happens on her wedding day. With the unlikely ally of his new love’s mother, a salty and flannel-clad Catherine O’Hara, the failed writer sets out to prove that true love is never wrong, or that two wrongs make a right, or something like that.

LIFESTYLE/HOUSE & HOME
For you, family and friends.
Mattituck: What’s Not to Love? Early spring is the perfect time of year for hopping around the island. Without summer traffic or the temptation of spending the entire day on the beach, we can easily pass a Saturday or Sunday afternoon leisurely exploring. Next time you take a drive out on the North Fork, head to Mattituck’s quaint and charming Love Lane. According to the MattituckLaurel Historical Society, the Love Lane business district came about due to the Long Island Rail Road in 1844. “The present Love Lane was named Railroad Avenue and only ran from the Main Road to the railroad tracts. From there to Mattituck Creek, it was a path where in the 1800s young lovers would take their horses and carriages in the evenings north to the creek. In the 1920s, the entire stretch was officially named Love Lane.” Whether you’re looking for a great cup of coffee to start off your excursion or some cheese to take with you to the vineyards, you’ll find this and more at The Village Cheese Shop. Mattituck’s Village Cheese Shop has a wonderful selection of imported and local cheeses and the knowledgeable staff will help you make the perfect selection for your pairings. They also have gourmet pastas, sauces, teas and much more, so you might not even need
to go grocery shopping later on! The Village Cheese Shop is located in the heart of town at 105 Love Lane. Call 631-298-8556 or visit thevillagecheeseshop.com. Even if you’re not feeling stressed out (okay, come on, who isn’t?), with the change in seasons and daylight savings, your mind and body might really benefit from a little TLC. Blue Sage Day Spa is your Mattituck destination for customized facial and massage treatments, waxing and body Blue Sage Day Spa scrubs for both men and women. Check out the website for special offers and the full list of services. If you’re a local B&B guest, be sure to inform them for your 10% discount. Blue Sage Day Spa is located at 140 Pike Street, Mattituck. Call 631298-4244 or visit bluesagedayspa.com. If you’re looking for a great place for a bite to eat, Love Lane Kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sunday night is “Super Supper Savings” with a $29 prix fix three-course menu that allows you to opt for wine over dessert (yes, please), Friday night beer and wine happy hour and Monday night dinner is only $15, paired with a cold draft. The restaurant places an emphasis on local and organic, you’ll find dishes serving up Satur Farm lettuces, Long Island shitake mushrooms, local fluke and an excellent North Fork wine list. 240 Love Lane. Call 631-298-8989 or visit lovelanekitchen.com.
While cruising Love Lane, you’re sure to come across Bauer’s. Bauer’s Love Lane Shoppe is filled with wonderful gift items, home décor, stationary, candles, jewelry and vintage finds. Vera Bradley and Crabtree & Evelyn devotees will be amazed by the selection. Located at 100 Love Lane, call 631-298-0204 or visit bauerslovelaneshoppe. com. There just aren’t many of these old fashioned candy shops around anymore—which makes a pop inside Love Lane Sweet Shoppe all the more delightful. Aside from offering a wide variety of gourmet candies and chocolates, they specialize in personalized gift baskets and gifts for weddings, birthdays and other celebrations. Why not bring home a box of Godiva to enjoy with some North Fork red wine? Love Lane Sweet Shoppe is located at 125 Love Lane. Call 631-298-2276 or visit lovelanesweets.com. Now for that wine! Roanoke Vineyards has a wine bar right at 165 Love Lane. Sip and sample and then maybe even visit the vineyard for a tour or a tasting on your way back toward Riverhead. The New York Times declared, “Roanoke has mastered Cabernet Franc.” Roanoke Vineyards is located at 2543 Sound Avenue in Riverhead. Call 631-727-4161 or visit roanokevineyards.net. Cheers!

See what’s cooking now.
Where to save while dining out.
By brendan j. o’reilly
fter a successful Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund a series trailer, production of Seafood Safari will soon be underway in the Hamptons, starring celebrity chef Kerry Heffernan. The premise of the show has evolved since Seafood Safari was first conceived last year by charter boat captain and spearfisher Ralph Towlen of Hampton Bays. The vision, originally, was to catch fish and other seafood—either by rod-and-reel or while scuba diving—then have Heffernan prepare it at De Gustibus, the culinary school inside Macy’s flagship store in Manhattan. The new concept keeps the whole show on the East End, with Heffernan serving as a conduit to local chefs. Towlen says it will now be less of a teaching show, and more of a lifestyle show. “There will be a lot of my cooking, but a lot of me ushering this product from its source to the people who make the Hamptons great,” Heffernan says. The plan is to run the gamut from high-end restaurants to “accessible, regular clam bars.” Seafood Safari does not have a network or distributor yet, but a pilot and eight more episodes are being produced on spec. “The beauty of doing it the way that we’re doing it, we get to make the show we want,” Heffernan says. “We can showcase the East End in our favored lens and light, and not through the prism of reality TV,” A “minisode” has already been produced, following Heffernan as he cuts through a frozen bay
and finds clams with a clam rake. With a few other fresh ingredients, he whips up an appetizing dish in his Sag Harbor home kitchen. Heffernan foresees Seafood Safari as a celebration of the East End and its great characters, including its chefs, naturalists and farmers. He says that as far back as 1998 when he was the founding executive chef of Eleven Madison Park in Manhattan—which tied for Zagat’s best restaurant in New York—he has been striving to support local culture and products, and use seasonal ingredients. “It’s very much who I am and who I’ve always been...” he says. “It’s interesting that it’s come more into vogue, but it’s something we’ve always practiced.” In addition to being a world-class chef who was a Top Chef Masters runner-up, Heffernan is a sport fisherman who has won several fishing tournaments. Heffernan grew up in Connecticut and summered in Cape Cod, and says Northeast maritime has always been in his blood. It was 25 years ago when he started visiting the Hamptons, where his interest in the sea’s bounty only grew. “The first thing you want to do is catch the most fish,” he says. “Then you want to catch the biggest fish. Eventually, for me, you want to catch the fish in a certain situation...the light, the wind, a different angle, a different spot. All that layer of subtlety.” While Heffernan will be on the surface of the water during Seafood Safari, Towlen will be underwater, spearing fish and hand-harvesting lobsters. Heffernan says Towlen adds a new level of depth—quite literally.
Celeb Chef Heffernan Stars in Seafood Safari
Chef Kerry Heffernan digs up clams in Sag Harbor.
“We have grand plans,” Towlen says. They plan on making both season one and two of Seafood Safari in the Hamptons, then go on to shoot future seasons at destinations around the world, like Cape Cod and the British Virgin Islands. “We have a limitless number of restaurants and places we can take this.” Towlen’s 26’ boat goes back into the water at Jackson’s Marina in Hampton Bays on April 1, and production of Seafood Safari season one will start soon thereafter. He has ordered a new, 33’ boat from Flowers Boatworks in Maine that will be built over the course of seven months. The construction of the boat will be captured by time-lapse cameras and incorporated into season two.

Late Winter Bites: Salmon, Stew, Custard Place fillets on a parchment-lined baking sheet and spoon the mixture equally over each fillet. Marinate for up to 20 minutes at room temperature.
By silvia lehrer
Though corned beef and cabbage may appear on many a menu this coming weekend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, in Ireland they will no doubt feast on salmon or Irish stew. Corn beef and cabbage is an American idea, and as much as I love the dish, salmon is in accord with spring and spring can’t arrive
3. Roast salmon in preheated oven about 8 minutes. Fish will be slightly pink to rare in the center. If you prefer to cook your salmon to medium doneness roast 2 to 3 minutes longer. LENTIL VEGETABLE STEW This savory and satisfying lentil stew is sweetened with a bit of carrot. Serves 4 to 6
ROAST SALMON FILET WITH GINGER AND SOY The secret to this salmon recipe is in the roasting. Just a few minutes in a hot oven creates a moist fillet with a delectable crusty exterior. Serves 4 to 6
Stay healthy with baked salmon!
1 1/2 to 2 pounds center-cut salmon fillet, skin removed 1 to 2 shallots, finely chopped 1 to 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger 1 tablespoon fresh lime or lemon juice 1 to 2 teaspoons kosher salt Freshly ground pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425°F.
2 to 3 teaspoons brown sugar 1 1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 to 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1. Cut filet into 4 to 6, 1 1/2-inch widths 2. Peel a 1 to 1/ 2-inch knob of ginger and grate it into a small bowl. Add chopped shallots, salt, pepper, brown sugar, olive oil and soy sauce and stir to mix.
1. Put the lentils in a 5- to 6-quart saucepan; cover with 6 quarts cold water and bring to a boil. Skim off any foam that rises to the top. Stir in the shallots, garlic, carrots and celery. Season with salt and pepper to taste and stir in the red pepper flakes. Adjust heat to medium low and simmer the stew gently until lentils are tender, about 25 minutes. 2. When the lentils are cooked and water evaporates, add the tomatoes and parsley and stir to mix. The stew can be prepared ahead to this point. If preparing ahead, cool and refrigerate in a suitable container. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature and reheat, stirring occasionally, until the stew is properly hot, taste for salt and pepper; season with vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil to top each serving. LEMON CUSTARD SQUARES It almost looks as if a pile of whipped cream tops this lemony custard. But in fact the egg whites, which are beaten into the base mixture, separate while the custard bakes. Serves 8

1 1/2 cups dried green or brown lentils 3 shallots, finely chopped 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped 2 to 3 carrots cut into small dice 2 celery stacks thinly sliced Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper Pinch hot pepper flakes 2 plum tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped 2 to 3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley 2 to 3 teaspoons red wine vinegar Extra-virgin olive oil for serving
soon enough. Baked salmon fillets with ginger and soy and lentil stew can dovetail into the holiday mode and fit into a break from this harsh winter. Lentils, a high protein, round food that are regarded as “the cycle of life,” can be totally cooked ahead, refrigerated and reheated with a quick, last-minute seasoning before serving. The lentil stew makes a delicious base for the flavorful roasted salmon fillets. To give this duo a festive air complete the menu with light and lemony lemon squares.
2. Grate the rind from both lemons then juice them. Add rind and juice to the mixture; stir in egg yolks, one at a time 3. In a separate, clean cold bowl with cold beaters, whip the egg whites with cream of tartar until firm, but not dry peaks form, about 2 1/2 minutes, gently fold about 1/4 of the beaten whites into the custard. Carefully fold in remaining whites until well incorporated. Transfer to a non-reactive buttered baking pan such as Pyrex or porcelain and bake in 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Can be prepared ahead and refrigerated up to 24 hours. Cut into squares for serving.

Beautiful homes sold this week.
Bargains on the East End.
By kelly ann krieger
ith so many real estate, design and building firms to choose from, selecting the right one can prove to be the most important part of your decision-making process. Jeffrey Collé, known for designing and building luxury residential and commercial projects from Quogue to East Hampton offers some insights. His projects have included the total restoration of Maidstone Hall, the 16,000-square-foot historic mansion once owned by the Gardiner family;
the record-breaking moving and renovation of a 20,000-square-foot mansion in Water Mill; and creating a recording studio for Billy Joel. The Sotheby’s International team of Hamptons brokers, including Senior Global Advisor Beate Moore—the firm’s #1 agent in the Hamptons and #3 in the nation—are collaborating with Collé to make things easier for their clients by delivering a turnkey solution for buyers of custom estates. They are offering a one-stop solution for wealthy clients with myriad property needs. Collé says, “The first thing I always ask clients is

It’s also important to know whether or not their home will be used all year long or only in the summer, because people’s needs can change depending on this, as well as how they like to live; if they prefer an open floor plan, or a traditional layout, for example. After that’s settled, we’ll usually drive around throughout the different areas and look at houses, which gives them a good opportunity to see different styles and determine what they like. I also ask them to flip through architecture and design magazines like Veranda, Architectural Record, Architectural Digest and Elle Décor and pick out interior and exterior components and details that stand out to them.” “All of these steps help to determine what their preferences are and how we can create a custom home to highlight their personal taste,” Collé continues, “Prior to construction, we’ll discuss and select different styles of windows and doors, as well as flooring, tile, cabinetry and different finishes and materials.” Location, location, location is key, and it can increase the value of a home for years to come. “The most important thing to consider is where they want to live. Whether they want to be north or south of the highway, close to town or the beaches, or have a bayfront, pond-front or oceanfront property will make a big impact on the next steps,” Collé says. The timeline is also important to clients. With a reputable builder, you can be confident they will deliver. “The average time after the foundation is complete is about one year. The average time it takes to complete the design portion is three to four months,” Collé says. Moore points out, “You save time, time, time, and probably cost and potential aggravation, by sitting down with one experienced, knowledgeable individual who can make it happen.” “[Choosing someone who is] both a master builder and designer with a proven track record of success can offer an excellent ‘shortcut’ to creating your vision, because you can work with him as a sole source for all of your design/construction needs, rather than working with several parties, including, an architect, designer, general contractor, etc.,” Moore adds. When designing your home, research current trends. This can add value to your property and increase your asking price for future resale. “Some of the new trends in home design include outdoor rooms, home theaters and other special outdoor amenities. We are seeing keen interest in new construction versus antique/historic homes. Modern design is enjoying a renaissance,” Moore says.
