Make the Move to Solar Now.
Savings you can’t afford to ignore. Today’s attractive solar systems can meet up to 100% of your home’s energy needs and virtually eliminate electric bills for nearly onethird of homeowners. Add in the recently increased federal tax credit along with state, local incentives and utility rebates that can pay up to 75% of your installation and it’s clear that switching to clean, sustainable solar power pays off for the planet – and your pocket.

Why They Come Montauk,theNorthFork,theHamptons&theWorldofManhattan By Dan Rattiner A couple of weeks ago, the news was that Madonna had found a place out here. Last week, Alec Baldwin of Amagansett co-hosted the Academy Awards and this week Martha Stewart says she wants to find a man with a house in the Hamptons and marry him. Or so says Fox News. Over this long winter, local people have been down in the dumps about which way this economy is going to go. Stores have closed. The traffic is, gasp, normal. The snows have been up to our ears. And all the local towns are fighting to make their budgets by cutting back and laying off workers. The fact that the sun was setting at 3:30 in the afternoon (it always does in December) has only added to the gloom. Now, however, it begins. And as we secretly knew all along, the power and draw of the Hamptons is unparalleled. It is going to be a good, if not great summer. And we’ll leave the larger economic picture to Obama and Congress and all those other wonderful politicians down in Washington who have shown such leadership abilities. What I do want to talk about here is not a long list of celebrities who make this place their home away from home, but of the attractions that have made this place one of the most sought-after places in the whole world, particularly to the denizens of New York. The Hamptons owes its basic attraction to its geography. It is the ragged southeastern edge of the debris that the glacier left 20,000 years ago when it slid down from the North Pole and then, politely melted. It left an astonishing amount of peninsulas, islands, beaches, harbors, ponds and hills extending out 60 miles from the mainland of Long Island in two distinct fishtails. It is hard to drive
around a curve in either Montauk, the Hamptons or the North Fork without encountering a body of a water or a view of a body of water in the distance. The place seems to beckon you with its geography. Over the years, in this rural area, people have farmed the land, fished in the seas, swum in the oceans and raised an abundance of fresh foodstuffs for the tables of those living here. When I spoke to several people I know about what it was like here during the Depression, I learned that things might have been hard, but there was never a shortage of food to go around.
Cutchogue, Westhampton Beach, Southampton, Bridgehampton and East Hampton, still preserved in their colonial state, go back to the 1600s. And unlike their New England brethren, they are close by. It is just a two and a half hour car, bus or train ride away from Manhattan. It is twice that and more to get to New England. Beyond that, the East End of Long Island has numerous other advantages over its more distant competitors. The settlers, in the villages they built along the shorelines of southern New England and the East End, put up dozens of 40 foot tall old English windmills. Nearly all remain, a beautiful and unique collection of Americana from a time when the settlers took advantage of the strong winds to grind their grain. The collection here in the Hamptons in particular, eight mills, is the largest of all. And, from a New Yorker’s perspective, the closest of all. Then there were the beaches, the sands, surf and salt sea air of which were considered vigorous health advantages to all who could partake of them beginning a 150 years ago. But the beaches down on Long Island’s East End were grander than any farther north. Facing south, rather than east, they were larger and more beautiful. The surf was roughest and yet, being the farthest south, the sea temperature was the warmest. It was comfortable to swim among the breezes in the summertime in the Hamptons in particular. Farther north, with the temperatures in the 60s, you could go in for a dip, but it was never really possible for the general public to enjoy going in for very long. In other words, when a New York City resident would begin to think of a place nearby to getaway, the East End of Long Island always came
It’s hard to drive around a curve without encountering a body of water or a view of one. Our fresh corn, strawberries, striped bass, lobsters, clams, chickens, ducks, potatoes and everything else you can imagine were most abundant, Depression or no. There were problems with distribution and buying seedlings. Otherwise, everybody ate. Particularly unique about the eastern end, was that, along with New England, it was the earliest fully developed colonial community from when the British settlers first landed. There are hundreds of beautiful New England villages, complete with white churches and town halls, dotted throughout New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. But there are also a dozen of them on the twin peninsulas of Eastern Long Island. The towns of Southold,

Martha Stewart’s a stalker? So says former pal Mariana Pasternak in her new book, The Best of Friends. According to Pasternak, Stewart once lurked around East Hampton looking for “The Mogul,” a wealthy investment banker with whom she supposedly had a fling. * * * While down south filming Love Don’t Let Me Down, Amagansett’s Gwyneth Paltrow has strayed from her strict macrobiotic diet to sample the area’s famous cuisine. On goop.com, her online newsletter, she raves about the fried chicken and sweet potato fries. * * * According to the Wall Street Journal, last December Montauk Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff was physically attacked by another inmate in his North Carolina prison. Afterward, Madoff was transferred to a lowsecurity medical center for treatment. * * * Amagansett resident Alec Baldwin is in a war of the words with the National Enquirer journalist who reported that Baldwin’s feuding with “30 Rock” costar Tina Fey. So far the two have fired insults in Britain’s Times and the New York Post. * * * Congratulations, Joy Behar and Cynthia Nixon! The Hamptons residents were honored at the GLAAD media awards in New York last week. Behar received the top award for excellence in media, and Nixon took home the Vito Russo Award, which is given to an openly gay, bisexual, or transgender media professional who has promoted equal rights. * * * East Hampton’s Steven Spielberg is currently shopping a “hot script” by Noah Oppenheim about the late Jackie Kennedy Onassis. HBO is a lead contender and would likely develop the script as a film for its network. * * * Hamptons regular Michael Lohan, father of Lindsay, had a heart attack last week, and was admitted to Roslyn’s St. Francis Hospital. * * * Nobu partner Richie Notar plans to open a seasonal pop-up restaurant in East Hampton this summer and has issued an early warning: if you’re late for your reservation, you lose it, so plan accordingly. * * * When Otis Raring recently bought a black 2008 Honda Odyssey minivan online, he got more than he paid for: GPS directions to the East Hampton estate of Jerry Seinfeld, who owned the van previously. * * * Hamptons resident Madonna is working with her manager to create a new line of sunglasses for Dolce and Gabbana. The line, called MDG, debuts in May.

Southampton’sBeachBan YouCanExposeYourselfandNotSmoke,orCoverUpandSmoke By Dan Rattiner Southampton Village has always taken the lead when it comes to new regulations in the Hamptons. In the 1910s, they passed laws prohibiting what you are allowed to wear in public in that town. That law is still on the books and on various street corners there are street signs that warn of this need for decorum. The law prohibits visitors and residents from wearing clothing that does not cover from the top of the areola (the nipple) of the chest to halfway between the hipbone and the knee anywhere in public (with one exception) between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Violators will be subject to up to $1,000 in fines and/or up to 15 days in jail. It is the only community in the Hamptons to have such a law. The exception to this law is for the beaches in that village. It was decided way back then—this was just after the era when people changed clothes in little cabanas or portable curtained beach huts and they were running around on the beaches in bathing suits about as revealing as today—that there was a need to give people the opportunity to walk from the beaches where the
law does not apply, to their carriages and vehicles in the beach parking lot. Thus the law was not in effect on the beaches and from the dune to 50 yards inland. This relic of a law was widely praised when it was put into effect, then in the 1960s and 1970s was the subject of much public scoffing and ridicule by libertarians, hippies and freedom of expression types. It was put up for repeal, but at the last minute, a wave of historic nostalgia overtook the village. The law, rarely enforced, was part of the village’s heritage. It should be celebrated, not repealed. And so the proposal to repeal it was denied. It remains in effect, with Southampton the only village on the East End to have such a matter on its books. It is, under outrageous circumstances, enforced. In regards to less outrageous circumstances, a warning is often sufficient. This past Tuesday, however, Mayor Mark Epley and the Southampton Village Trustees
voted to write another new law that, if passed, will break new ground. This law bans smoking in various public, outdoor sections of this community. In these areas, there will no longer be people loitering around, having gotten out of doors for no other purpose than to light one up. No such law about smoking exists in any other community on the East End, as of yet. The law is carefully written to be in effect where there are an “abundance” of children around. There is to be no smoking from 9 to 5 in the playground section of Agawam Park. There is to be no smoking during the same hours in Windward Way Park and in the Down Family Park. Perhaps most importantly, there is to be no outdoor smoking along a particular section of Cooper’s Beach. It is where the food concession and pavilion, the only food concession and pavil(continued on page 26)
GOOGLE, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO US? By Dan Rattiner Since Google, the search engine, first came into the world 10 years ago, I have always thought of the founders as good guys—kids in t-shirts and jeans who would never do anything that was not on the up and up. I am here to tell you I am very disappointed in them. The way to get on the Internet, as we all know, is with a modem or Wi-Fi and then the browser
of your choice. Until six months ago, Google did not have a browser. You went online either with Safari on a Macintosh, or with Internet Explorer or Firefox on a PC (personal computer). A few other companies have come out with browsers, Google among them, but none have made a dent in the computer world. Most people would just as well leave browsers alone. Microsoft makes Explorer and Apple makes Safari. Firefox, which
may be the best of them, has been built for free by energetic users. All are just platforms. And all are free. As I use a PC, this story will be about the PC side of the computer world, but it doesn’t matter. The story holds true for either side. Google has gone over to the dark side. A light has gone out in the world. It’s a sad day in Silicon Valley. (continued on page 20)

Best Stories from the First 50 Years
Giant Female Ecuadorian Eel on its Way to Lure Our Killer Male First published in Dan’s Papers on March 14, 2003 By Dan Rattiner Last Thursday, on one of the coldest days of the year, members of the media traveled through the snow to Town Hall in Shelter Island for a press conference about the great 30foot long Ecuadorian Eel lurking in the murky bottom of Trout Pond in Noyac. A group of Town officials, members of the Environmental Protection Association, several police chiefs and an expert from Cornell University Marine Biology Department sat on the dais at one end of the room. The media, reporters and photographers and broadcasters who had been invited to come, sat on folding chairs at the other.
“We are here,” said Hampton Mayor Frank Anton, “because Dr. Horace Helmsley here from Cornell has presented us with a plan to deal with
the eel and we have accepted it. The eel has already killed a truck driver. It tried to kill a hunter from Ronkonkoma. This is a dangerous situation. Dr. Helmsley’s plan is a great plan. It can be put into place within a week. Let him tell you about it. After that, we will entertain questions. Dr. Helmsley?” Dr. Helmsley got up, and he pulled on what looked like a big window shade and down came a full color map of eastern Long Island. Helmsley picked up a pointer. “The eel is here,” he said, tapping the map, “in Trout Pond. It’s a great Ecuadorian, extremely rare.” He looked over at the EPA people and they nodded soberly.

Hitting Search IsAmericanDemocracytobeInsisteduponEverywhereintheWorld By Dan Rattiner Last Tuesday, Google announced that it will not continue to operate in China, where at the present time, 30% of all those online use their search service rather than the locally owned Chinese search service. The issue, as Google frames it, is freedom of information. When you click on a search word, the search should take you everywhere, no holds barred. Chinese computer experts hacked into the service without their knowledge and messed with it so that for some search terms, certain information that should come up did not. The hackers cut out pornography and they cut out information that is critical of the government.
Google says it will no longer do this. China says it will not be told what to do and will ban any company that operates in violation of Chinese law. It occurs to me that there are many services that offer search engines that DO ban certain information. YouTube will not allow information involving pornography to be searchable on its site. The company itself regulates this. You can search FaceBook but there are levels of privacy that will cut out what can be searched. The users regulate this. Some news sites allow anybody to say anything. Others have employees whose job it is to decide whether something posted is “objectionable” or not. All these restrictions are
spelled out in the small print explanation that you have to agree to. The U. S. Government has taken Google’s side in the controversy. America is the land of the free. Anybody can say anything they want. There are search sites for pornography, search sites for Ne0-Nazis, search sites for the Ku Klux Klan, all perfectly legal in this country. The only exception to this freedom of speech business is with child pornography. You can go to jail just for possessing it. America does not go to war to fight governments that ban freedom of speech and media (unless they become a direct threat to this coun(continued on next page)
A SPORTS TEAM THAT CAN’T BEAT ANYBODY By Dan Rattiner It’s often been said that on any given day, one basketball team can beat another, so you never know. On the other hand, there is the New Jersey Nets. The Nets have been playing basketball for about 29 years now in their stadium in the Meadowlands, and although they have never won any championships, they have, from time to time, made it to the playoffs. As recently as three years ago, even with their star guard Jason Kidd aging, they managed to get to them, only to be turned away by the Los Angeles Lakers. This year, however, the Nets came out onto the court with a team that was so bad it broke the old adage. The lost their first 18 games, which set a record for how to start the season. Then they won their first game but lost their next 10. By the time the Jets were 33 games into their season, they had managed to win only three. They were, at that time, the pundits said, destined to be the worst professional basketball team in history. All they had to do was continue on. And they did. At home games at the Meadowlands, just a
few of their fans would show up, just to booo at them. And the Nets obliged by continuing on their vast losing streak. There were all sorts of reasons why this losing streak was happening according to the sportswriters. There were injuries. The coach was bad (and got fired). There were players they needed but they couldn’t get in the draft. They had been a mediocre team the year before with just a 5050 record and with Jason Kidd gone to another team the morale had plunged. The team was going to move to Brooklyn. And, finally, the team had been bought by a Russian billionaire who did not care whether they won or lost frankly and wasn’t even clear about all the rules of the game. Whatever it was, the team plunged on toward the record. I watched them on TV once, for about four minutes. They shot and missed, the other team shot and scored, they got the ball and shot and missed and the other team shot and scored and finally—I could not stand it anymore—the Nets threw the ball in from out of bounds for a steal and the other teams scored again. I turned it off.
Strangely, the Nets games began to almost vanish from the pages of the New York dailies. Ordinarily, they would be writing about both the Knicks and the Nets. Now it was just the Knicks, with only a summary of the Nets games in little tiny print. And there the Nets sat, in the division standings so far down that it seemed they should just be a footnote or something. As the team passed 65 games (6 wins and 59 losses) management did hire a new player with at least moderate abilities. I had been following the team in the papers, noting their scores every other day or so. The losses were awful. They’d be behind 105 to 60 with 10 minutes to play and the other squad would put in their second team to finish the game out. The final score would still be 119 to 75. But now, with the new player, the Nets seemed to be getting close before being defeated. I began to see scores like 104 to 101. Or 96 to 89. These were phenomenally close efforts it seemed to me and although I had no evidence to support my theory about it, it seemed to me it was because (continued on next page)

try), but they do express disapproval of other governments who put a ban on things. Obama did just that when he met with the Chinese leader Wu Bangguo. It seems to me that Google is taking the position that it is the defender of freedom of speech and information and the American Way. Otherwise, they could end this standoff by offering their present Google service everywhere else in the world with the exception of the airwaves in China, and in China offer a second service under a different name, with the same information as everywhere else but with the restrictions demanded by China cut out of it. Call it GoogleX.com. In China, it would be legal to own GoogleX.com. You could go to jail for being in possession of Google.com. That Google might agree to do this seems to all of us here as shockingly un-American. Didn’t we fight the Soviet Union because their way of life suppressed independent thought? Didn’t we overthrow Saddam Hussein because he oppressed his people? It does bring up the question of just how far we wish to go to support freedom for peoples everywhere. Should America be the land of the free? Or the land that goes to war to make everywhere else free too? A cynic would say it is more about oil and commerce and nothing about freedom for the people. The facts might very well support that contention. America did go to war against the Soviet Union when the leaders of that oppressed state declared they would spread Communism all over
the world. Since that would include the Statue of Liberty and America, it meant a fight. It did not mean a fight against the People’s Republic of China, though. China had become a repressive Communist-run state much like the Soviet Union. But it never reached out to change the world. Wu, when hearing of Obama’s criticism, declared that there were levels of repression and some were more applicable in certain circumstances, and there were situations where full freedom would not work. He said Obama was welcome to his opinions and he would run China and Obama could run America. At this point, with China building a western style economy that will soon be the dominant one in the world, it seems we are at a crossroads with our thinking. China consists of 1.3 billion people. It is the elephant in the room. If running a country of this size requires certain information to be withheld or changed around we don’t support it, but perhaps there is something to it. On the other hand, many Americans say that soon the Chinese government, in love with Western life, will come to its senses and open the doors to freedom in its own country. Somebody here is going to have to either bend or compromise. Somebody here is going to have to re-think things. Otherwise, as has happened in history over and over again, people are going to kill one another in massive numbers because they would not bend to the other’s way of life or religious beliefs.

the work of the fairly good player. I bring all this up at this particular time only because I consider myself a connoisseur of bad performances. I eagerly watched the Mets stagger through their first year as an expansion baseball team back in the 1960s. Their coach, Casey Stengel, famously said during that year “can’t ANYBODY play this game?” But even so, the Mets managed to win 20 games of their first 70. The Nets, if they continued on, would win just 7 games over the same time at the rate they were going. Two weeks ago, however, an astounding thing happened. The Nets went up to Boston to play the Celtics, who are one of the three best teams in basketball. And they won, beating them on their home court. It was not possible. Two days later there was an earthquake in Chile. Since that time, the Nets have begun winning one out of every five games they play. This is double the miserable-ness that they had been playing at before when they were winning one out of 10. Indeed, the Nets may well be escaping from the record set by the Milwaukee Brewers in 1987 when they lost the most games in the history of professional basketball. It’s entirely possible, if this slightly improved situation continues, that the Nets may, so to speak, have dodged the bullet. We shall see. Last week, the Nets beat their cross-town rivals, the Knicks. What is happening? Whatever it is, I decided, I better write this down before the Nets rise to a level of incompetence that might be too high to be written about. So here it is.

Squeezed Out In Today’s Hamptons, Two Groups Have No Place to Call Home by Susan M. Galardi You can bring a kid a shotgun, but you can’t make him shoot. Yet encouraging young people to hunt was suggested recently at a town deer summit in East Hampton. A DEC biologist said it could help control the deer population. So let’s get this straight. Parents who can’t get a teenager to turn off the computer and come to dinner are now supposed to convince him or her to get up at 4 in the morning, put on gear, grab the gun (or bow and arrow), go out and muck around in the cold and wet woods, and BLAM! Blow away a deer–all before morning assembly?
This was just one suggestion at the three-hour meeting, where almost 200 people crushed into Town Hall to discuss deer overpopulation in East Hampton. Hunters lead the charge to “cull” the population; activists and vegetarians opposed the “slaughter;” homeowners and regular citizens just pleaded with the town to do something. After everything was said and nothing done, one point was clear: Deer and hunters have no place in the Hamptons anymore—literally. The East End is no longer the country, with swaths of forests where deer can live away from us with their ticks and inability to understand
what a car is. The area is a suburb, albeit an extraordinary one, where farms and woods have been replaced by mansions and quarter-acre improved lots. The deer have little choice for habitat. What else can they do but sleep in your yard and eat your plants? Their nemeses, hunters, are feeling squeezed too—ironically for the same reasons. Designated hunting areas have been decreased over the years, and hunting is illegal within 500 feet of a residence. Some hunters want to see those setbacks reduced so they can hunt in the privacy of (continued on next page)

your own backyard. I sure don’t want deer in my yard. But I don’t want hunters there either. Despite rampant disagreement, almost everyone at the meeting was of the mind that deer overpopulation is a problem, and it’s growing: a doe has two fawns a year—which means up to 50% more deer annually. Two weeks ago, leaving a show at Guild Hall in East Hampton, I saw an enormous buck walking down the sidewalk—on Main Street. I’ve had three near misses with deer on the road and was treated for a bull’s eye Lyme rash last summer. We moved to North Haven in July, and as I walked down the driveway to meet the moving truck, a tick fell square onto my forehead from the vines overhead. Welcome to North Haven. Everyone has war stories about deer, but the problems the animals present are nothing compared to the problems the solutions create. To control ticks, homeowners spray the hell out of their property with highly toxic chemicals that leech into the ground and water system. You could limit the environmental damage and put the stuff on yourself instead—or, better yet, on the deer through 4-poster contraptions used on Shelter Island. Deer enter baiting stations, and the pesticide Permethrin is spread on them. While this supposedly reduces ticks by a whopping 90%, Permethrin has been shown to cause cancer. Water tests on Shelter Island show the chemical is there. (Also, you can’t eat the meat from deer treated with these chemicals, killing the rationale that hunting provides food for the poor.)
To control the deer themselves, 8-foot fencing keeps the animals off your property—but as they look for a new route, it also forces them to dart out on the roads. A few years ago, special reflectors were used on a deer-y stretch of Stephen Hands Path abutting a farm. While the group responsible claims it was effective in keeping deer off the roads, dissenters said it improved because the farmer is now growing potatoes, which deer don’t eat. Strategies to control the number of deer include contraceptives administered at baiting stations (young females will have to get a letter from their parents), and trapping and relocating the deer (to a place that needs/wants them?). The biologist, the DEC’s Michael Clark, is against trapping/relocating, which is currently illegal in New York, saying that the deer could die from the stress of being captured. No one wants that. Instead, he recommended trapping and “euthanizing.” Die from stress? Die from a bullet? Which brings us to hunting, and Clark’s other suggestions like killing only the baby-machine does, and recruiting local youth to the ranks of hunting. That idea was based on statistics that the younger generation is not as keen on the activity. There are good reasons for that. First, the practical need is gone—you just don’t have to go out and shoot something for the stewpot anymore. Second, one twenty-something told me that when he was in high school out here, hunting was no longer considered cool. His generation was raised by parents who came of age in the ‘60s who believed that killing is wrong. There’s also the video game theory. Kids between 8 and 18
spend almost 8 hours a day using electronic devices—and that doesn’t include texting. Why leave the comfort of your home, happily blowing up things in cool video games, to go outside and risk getting Lyme disease? How the Town of East Hampton will deal with all the suggestions, emotions, problems and solutions remains to be seen, but there are specific actions it could take. To limit accidents, the town should get actual data on how and if the reflectors have been working. For ticks, it should mandate effective, non-toxic pesticide sprays for private property that won’t give the rest of us cancer (organic sprays work, and make your property smell really nice). By no means should there be any leeway on the 500-foot property setback regulation. The issue of trapping/relocating should be addressed at the state level, sending deer to a place where they’re wanted. In tandem, the Hampton Luxury Liner could sponsor a trapping/relocation of hunters, too, temporarily taking them somewhere they can run free and shoot to their heart’s content. Wherever deer won’t get in the way of regular folks living their lives, hunters would probably be welcomed, too. There’s a place for them, somewhere… Herds of deer carrying disease and causing car accidents have no place in the densely populated Hamptons. Neither do hunters shooting rifles around private property. Just as the deer population needs to die out in the modern Hamptons, maybe traditions that no longer make sense on the East End of the 21st Century need be rethought, too.

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner I know a lot of people who’ve recently been diagnosed with a Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D, which is created by our bodies naturally by getting exposure from sunlight, is hard to get, so it’s important for my friends to purchase Vitamin D pills. One buddy has a real problem because he just can’t seem to find the time to get five minutes of sunlight a day that’s needed to prevent the onset of Rickets. He’s already getting serious symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency, like becoming irritable when something bad happens. The other day I felt a little irritable and thirsty, and I read that Vitamin D deficiency can be the cause of both of these symptons, so I went to the doctor just to be safe. After an exam and a few questions, it was determined that I don’t have a Vitamin D deficiency, but an air intake deficien-
cy. Also known as AI deficiency. It’s new. The doctor explained that my body wasn’t getting enough air during the day, which may be the cause of my thirst and slight irritability. I asked about options, and he explained that the air that we breathe is very important to our health, impacting all of our major body systems directly and indirectly, especially our vital organs such as the heart, brain and lungs. In fact, if you can believe it, if we don’t get enough air, it can be fatal, something I was unaware of. It really got me thinking about what I should do. The good doctor explained that my air deficiency could be helped if I purchase a new supplement that comes from the skin of pineapples, and include more pineapples in my diet if possible. I left his office feeling good because AI wasn’t
going to stop me from experiencing the optimal/maximal/perfect life that I strive to live every day. I went to the store and got imported pineapples from an organic farm in South America (owned by a white guy from California, so you know it’s the good stuff) and bought the new pineapple supplements. I also tried breathing, but honestly, who has the time these days to breathe in and out during the day? I mean, I’m a very busy man. I’ve also found wonderful, creative ways to add pineapples to my diet. I have a great new salmon, walnut, pineapple, whey protein, acaiblueberry, wheatgrass pizza recipe—makes a fantastic lunch. It’s exactly what it sounds like, (continued on page 23)

to mind first. And because it came to mind first, it attracted the most privileged and sophisticated of those who lived in New York City, simply because of the laws of supply and demand. From this there emerged something that is truly unique in the entire world. After about 100 years (1870-1970) of sometimes hilarious encounters between New York sophisticates and country types (farmers, fishermen, local laborers) on the East End—the New Yorkers began to bring here the kind of art and sophistication they were familiar with back home. Today, the play you will sometimes see at Bay Street in Sag Harboe or Guild Hall in East Hampton, is often a precursor to what will shortly be the same thing in Manhattan. Top musicians and singers came here—Itzhak Perlman, Billy Joel, Madonna and Sting come to mind—not necessarily to perform but to live. Great artists came to live and paint here. (Think of Lichtenstein, Rivers, deKooning, Pollock, Schnabel and Klein), the world’s great architects came to design homes and public structures here, then, after a legion of writers, novelists came to live here (Steinbeck, Vonnegut, Doctorow, Plimpton, Matthiessen) then the critics and editors (Craig Claiborne, Bill Bradley, Pamela Fiori), then the fashion industry (Klein, Lauren) the Rap Industry (Simmons and Diddy), and then the most recognizable successes from video and film (Spielberg, Baldwin, Sonnenfeld, Bacall, Zellweger) and then all manner of others involved in every other range of the arts. Indeed, the Hamptons and the East End are now filmed and featured in many movies that make their way to market every year. The East End of Long Island have a bad season? Never. To all that come, we welcome you too, among other things and on a personal note, the 50th Anniversary of Dan’s Papers, and the publication of IN THE HAMPTONS, TOO, the second collection of stories about people I know and knew from this part of the world, which will be appearing this Memorial Day weekend. The East End is where I have made my home since I was brought out here by my parents as a teenager to live in the 1950s. This was now our home. We were gone from our former home on the suburban street in Millburn, New Jersey. My dad had bought a drugstore on the East End. It knocked me out. I’ve never left.

Two nights ago, I noticed that I was having difficulty getting to my email. I use Firefox and my main page is Google. A click on Google takes me to my email site, gmail.com, which is owned by Google. I clicked on gmail.com and it wouldn’t load. Instead, I got a message. It read that Gmail could not load in Standard Mode on my computer. Instead, I could click here and get my mail with something called Gmail.com HTML mode. I clicked. I got my mail fine now, but this version of gmail was very stripped down. I could not, for instance, send out an email to more than one person at a time. My groups were disabled. If I wanted to send a message out to 15 people at the same time, I’d have to type every one of them in each time. What was going on? Yesterday it worked. Today it doesn’t. I tried Internet Explorer instead of Firefox and it did the same thing. There were many features disabled. I went back to the message that told me Standard Mode could not load on my computer. The message said there might be three reasons for this—one was that I had used too much memory. Another was that my computer might not be powerful enough. The third was that I might have an out-of-date version of the browser I was using. I should update the browser. This third one made no sense to me, because I had just installed an update on Firefox. The second made no sense because this is a computer less than six months old. And the first made no sense because the percentage of usage was right there on the screen and I was nowhere near top-
ping out. I worked on this problem for the next three hours. I tried to get into Standard Mode on an old laptop and it worked fine, so that meant Google and gmail were not the problem. The problem might be, it seemed to me, the update of Firefox I had just put in. I called the manufacturer of my laptop for help and they did some diagnostics and said it was not my laptop. They tried a few tricks with the software, but nothing helped. I thanked them, and then went back to the error message. It told me what I could do to fix it. I could enjoy this lousy html mode. Or, another thing I could do was to download Chrome, which is the new Google Browser. That would work fine. I did that. And it did work fine. With the new browser from Google, I could get right into Standard Mode in Google’s email site with no problem. So now, after three hours of work trying to fix Firefox, I am now using Chrome because it is the only thing that works. In other words, Google has downloaded something into my new computer that partially disables both Firefox and Explorer when you try to use gmail on them. By the way, I went to the help blogs—calling Google gets you a message telling you they don’t offer live help. The help blogs are full of people who can now suddenly get only this crippled html version of gmail. It’s a big problem everywhere. They say that all is fair in love and war, but this is the same dirty trick that Microsoft uses whenever they want to pull the rug out from under one of their competitors. It is illegal and
they know it. Microsoft has done this to Netbook and Wordperfect and UNIX and the government steps in and says they have to stop so they do, but by that time their victim is dead on the floor. That’s why you can just barely remember Netbook, Wordperfect and UNIX, which each had 90% of their corner of the computer market before Microsoft came in with a competing product and—because these others have to work on the Windows platform—got them partially disabled and abandoned before the referee could come in blowing his whistle to get Microsoft to return to playing by the rules. I am just so disappointed in Google. Larry Page and Sergey Brin, one American born and one Russian born, have made billions with their company. They cost me three hours the other evening and then the following morning by crippling their competitors and herding me over to Chrome without my consent. So that’s business. No holds barred. And don’t even tell your customer what is going on because he’ll call in the referee before the crook is finished with his competitors. Unfortunately, I am here to report, much to my dismay, that Chrome is just fabulous. It blows both Explorer and Firefox out of the water. It loads in a nanosecond. It goes to where you want to go with blinding speed, which really is all that a browser is supposed to do. I am so glad I found it. Sorry Firefox. You don’t work right anyway anymore. I’m going with the Mafia for the good stuff.

Montauk Gets Its Irish On By T.J. Clemente This year, the 48th Friends of Erin Parade in Montauk was its usual spectacle with a mixed bags of trickster floats, historical fire trucks, and a sprinkling of politicians who felt popular enough at the moment to march along with the drums, bands, bagpipers and neighbors. The parade, led as always by the Amityville Highlanders Bagpipers, headed down Main Street in Montauk as a testimony to civic pride and a homage to Irish heritage—all for charity. This year’s Grand Marshal, Craig Tuthill, attended the first parade with his grandfather E.B. Tuthill, who lent his lumberyard flatbed truck as one of the earliest floats. The early parades went in the opposite direction ending at the Montauk Firehouse. “We used to serve about 150 people hotdogs afterwards at the firehouse,” Tuthill said. Executive Director of the Montauk Chamber of Commerce Laraine
Creegan, said the Chamber mugs (its annual parade commemorative) sold briskly. The popular soup stand manned by Carl Darenberg and his crew of chamber volunteers continued to be a popular spot to view the parade. The efforts of Friends of Erin President Joe Bloecker, and President of the Ladies Auxiliary Maureen Keller manifested themselves in a glorious event. It isn’t uncommon to see three generations of families watching from vantage points every year. This year’s crowd was down, (around 35,000) from the record estimate of three years ago of 47,000.The fine weather had everyone in high feather with the “Tiger Woods and His Mistresses” float getting laughs, as well as the annual “Coneheads” float, which this year was a takeoff on the movie Avatar. Once again, Nancy Atlas did her salute to Elvis with many fans and friends on board. New East Hampton Town
Board members marched, along with Montauk resident, Board member Julia Prince, very much with child. Supervisor William Wilkinson, also a Montauk resident, made an appearance as did County Representative Jay Schneiderman and his children. What makes this parade so Montauk is the sheer enthusiasm of its residents. It launches the tourist season in Montauk with the first infusion of much needed customers to the town. Afterwards, the sea of folks green from head to toe with T-shirts, hats, hair, face paint, nylons and yes, green false teeth, headed to the trains and cars to exit town. According to Grand Marshal Tuthill, “The first Grand Marshal 48 years ago was Leo Burke, a good friend of my grandfather’s and my father’s.” The sound of the bagpipes echo off the roar of the surf. The faces in some families age as younger ones appear. It’s how traditions grow. The East End’s Favorite Kids Party Spot!

DAN'S PAPERS, March 26, 2010 Page 23 www.danshamptons.com
Steve Levy Jumps the Fence By T.J. Clemente One thing’s for sure about Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy—he knows how to get his name in the paper. From embarrassing public ethnic slurs to progressive countywide green policies, his name is in the daily rags. Levy knows how to get his ink, but this week he painted in statewide oils—he was on the cover of almost every daily publication with his political gambit of switching political parties (Democrat to Republican) to win the right to oppose Andrew Cuomo in the race for governor. Attempting to follow what has been four years of amazing political misfortunes centering around the governor’s office, with two men ruining their formerly pristine political reputations, Levy is sailing into uncharted waters. Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst and New York State Assemblyman Fred Thiele, two savvy East End political minds, weighed in. Throne-Holst wrote in an email, “Switching parties when rooted in a true sense of disconnect with a party platform and position on issues, is a legitimate choice, [as well as a] responsibility for those in elected office. It’s only fair to voters.... On the other hand, when switching—or even vying for an office—is based on opportunism, that’s a different story. I believe the voting public is moving increasingly towards choosing representatives they believe will serve them best and who represent real public service rather than going party line.” Thiele took a different course, saying,
“Steve Levy’s announcement that he is becoming a Republican and running for Governor adds another twist to an already volatile political year in New York, where every state office is up for election this year. Steve is a long time friend and colleague. He has a formidable record, savvy political instincts, and an endless capacity for work. I have no doubt that he’ll play a major role in shaping the state campaign this Fall. Whether he is successful will largely depend on whether he can convince people that his party switch is a matter of conscience and not simply political opportunism.” Thiele’s last line is the crux of what will happen. To highlight what may become a year for a new record in mudslinging in a governor’s race, former U.S. Representative Rick Lazio, (the man Hillary Clinton defeated to launch her own political career as U.S. Senator from New York), is leading a new charge. Lazio, who fancied himself the front runner until about half of the state’s Republican Party chairmen threw their support behind Levy, released facts he wanted out there about the County Executive in press release about Levy: 1. He voted for the largest tax increase in state history—$3.2 billion in 2003. 2. He voted for massive SEIU union giveaway—$1 billion in 2002. 3. He twice voted to make Shelly Silver the Speaker of the Assembly. 4. In January 2010, he said Andrew Cuomo would make a good Governor. 5. He called the Obama Stimulus package “manna from heaven” that would “save lives.” 6. He’s taken nearly $400,000 from labor unions.7. He endorsed and supported Al Gore. 8. He endorsed and supported John Kerry. 9. He endorsed and supported Eliot Spitzer. 10. He has said that he will not support Republicans running for office this year. Levy supporters point out his balanced
county budgets, fiscal conservatism, and ability to work across party lines to get things done —he’s taken that strategy to a new level. Ironically, when Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman felt uneasy about being a member of Dick Cheney’s party and switched to Independent, Levy took some pot shots. In a tribute to instant Karma, Levy will now feel that same heat. A local political figure who requested anonymity said, “It may be fun to see if Cuomo or Levy will claim they’re more liberal, or more conservative.” He inferred that the Cuomo machine will slash and burn all that comes into its path. Of course, eight months is a long time in a political year, and with the whole U.S. Congress and one third of the U.S. Senate up for grabs, post Health Care Reform vote, the Governor’s race is sure to be quite a spectacle come November.

By Dan Rattiner Week of March 19 – March 25, 2010 Riders this week: 5,712 Rider miles this week: 58,422 DOWN IN THE TUBE Out hunting for summer rentals last week and seen on the subway were Meryl Streep in Sag Harbor, Sandra Bullock in Shinnecock and Mel Gibson on Shelter Island. It should be a good summer. NO NEWSLETTER LAST WEEK We apologize that there was no Hampton Subway Newsletter last week. It was due to a mix-up. Our typesetting is done at Hampton Subway Headquarters in Hampton Bays. Our printing is done at Ajax Printing in Westhampton. A new intern was assigned the job of bringing the diskette we use for the newsletter from Hampton Bays to Westhampton. We use a very old technology, which has long been in need
of updating. In any case, the intern we sent out on the task never delivered the diskette. He was last heard from surfing in Hawaii. Well, there was not a whole lot that happened last week. SUBWAYS WILL ACCELERATE FASTER Hampton Subway will be retrofitting all its subway cars with new turbocharged engines. For years, Hampton Subway has operated with old Opel 4 cylinder diesel engines, which could get the subways up to full speed—38 miles an hour—in 14 seconds. This is not a terribly fast acceleration. The New York Subway gets its trains up to full speed in 10.2 seconds. Now, we have obtained, through important contacts at eBay, three dozen superchargers originally built for as attachments for 2004 Opel 4 cylinder diesel engines. They were won at auction for a tremendous bargain—$92.51 for the lot—and though they were listed as being attachable to 2003 Opel 4 cylinder diesel engines, we bought them anyway hoping they would fit the 2004
models. They do. The turbochargers inject an extra oomph of diesel fuel when the motorman puts the pedal to the medal. There is a half second delay before the extra fuel kicks in, so straphangers will feel a sort of hesitation when leaving every stop, but after that, the zip up to top speed will come very quickly, we’ve calculated it will be 9.8 seconds, and, as a result, the time spent going from one stop to the next will be shortened. Although the subways arrive on a particularly rigorous schedule, this new oomph will allow the stops at the stations to be an average of 12 seconds longer, thus allowing riders who rush to catch the train to be able to do so where they have not been able to do so before. Hang on to your hats. CLOWNS REMOVED A group of nine circus clowns was removed from the Pantigo platform last Thursday afternoon after some people complained. It turns out they were students at the Addison Clown School in Ronkonkoma and were just out there for a school project. Nevertheless they were booked at East Hampton Village Court on charges of disturbing the peace, failing to get proper permits and being neglectful in not posting the appropriate amount of insurance bonds required by law. They will appear for the arraignment on (continued on next page)

“So nobody can kill it.” “Yet,” interrupted Hampton Police Chief Pasta. “Never.” said several men in unison from the EPA. “As you can see,” Helmsley continued, “Noyac Road passes Trout Pond just to the north. And to the north of that is Little Harbor. Little Harbor flushes out into open water, to Peconic Bay and to the Atlantic Ocean. “There is an outfall pipe that goes under the road between Little Harbor and Trout Pond. It is a big six-foot diameter sewer pipe that allows the tides to flush in and out of the Pond. We want to get the eel through that sewer pipe and out to open water. We are going to lure him out.” Helmsley paused to lean on his pointer. He stared out at the assembled crowd. “We have located a female Great Ecuadorian in the Municipal Aquarium in Quito, Ecuador,” he said. “Remember Willie the Whale? How they transported him in a big military cargo plane from Seattle to Iceland? We have arranged the same equipment. Only because of the war in Iraq, the plane is being donated by FedEx. It should be landing at Gabreski Airport in Westhampton Beach two days from now. Greta, which is what they have named this female Great Ecuadorian, will be transported by moving van to the boat ramp at Little Harbor and dumped out. We believe she will lure the killer Great Ecuadorian out into the harbor and lead him back to Ecuador. That’s the plan. I’ll take questions.” “How do you know the killer Great Ecuadorian is a male?” a reporter asked. “Males are tinged blue. Females are tinged pink.” “What makes you think the female will lure the male out to Ecuador?’ “Females do that. Ecuador is on the equator. The seas are warm. Our male eel here is undoubtedly stuck here under the ice pretty near
freezing to death. The sight of Greta will cheer him. He will follow her.” “How do you know the male won’t be too big for the sewer pipe?” “No giant male Ecuadorian has ever had a diameter of more than four and a half feet. Male Ecuadorians have been seen upwards of 40 feet. At that length they have a diameter of four and a half feet, maximum. This one is just 36 feet.” “I thought just last week the police said he was 30 feet.” “He was. He is growing. We have been able to image him by satellite.” There was a long silence after that. Then Hamptons Mayor Frank Farrell spoke. “I want you to know that I voted against this plan,” Farrell said. “I believe that, in spite of what the learned professor said here there is the possibility that Greta will just go into Trout Pond and set up housekeeping with our Great Ecuadorian. If she does, and they have babies, and we can’t kill it, what do we do?” “There is absolutely no possibility of that,” Dr. Helmsley said. “Female Ecadorians are one of the few creatures on the planet that have females larger than males. Greta cannot fit through the sewer pipe.” “Mr. Farrell was the only one voting against this plan,” Chief Pasta said. “Look. We have to trust what the Doctor says. He says they’ll go back to Ecuador. That’s what they they’ll do. And that’s what we voted, seven to one.” “Greta is just too big. There is almost no possible chance they would set up housekeeping here,” Dr. Helmsley said. “It is such a remote chance as to be nonexistent almost. They will head out to Ecuador.” “There is a rumor,” a reporter said, “that we are meeting here on Shelter Island because when the eels come out we don’t know how they will get out to open sea.” “That is true,” Chief Pasta said. “It was a juris-
dictional matter. But however it happens, the eel pair will pass either to the north or to the south of Shelter Island. So Shelter Island has taken charge of the problem of whose waters this will be. We voted it to them.” “There are ice floes in Peconic Bay,” a broadcaster said. “We saw them getting here on the ferries from the South Fork and from Greenport. The little ferries bang into them.” “I saw a penguin on one,” a photographer said to much laughter. “So they’ll have something to eat along the way,” Dr. Helmsely said. “Penguins are protected too,” said one of the men from the EPA. “Whatever,” Dr. Helmsley said. “How will we know they have gone back to Ecuador?” someone asked. “Greta has a homing device on her, a beeper. They attached it in Ecuador.” “To what part of her body?” “To her starboard vestigial frontal fin,” to be exact,” Dr. Helmsley said. “I think that’s enough questions,” Hampton Mayor Frank Anton said, “thank you all.” There was a clanging of the folding chairs and a rustling of the coats and scarfs and gloves as the reporters put them on. “When will this happen?” a reporter asked. “Soon,” Chief Pasta said. “We will let you know. It’s not happening now. You’re safe to go home.” “Incidentally,” Mayor Anton said, “I would like to ask you to broadcast or write in this article that all dogs and other pets should be kept close to home. Certainly not anywhere near Trout Pond. Keep them on leashes.” “When the time comes,” Chief Pasta said, “Noyac Road will be blocked off with more than forty police officers. We also hope to have the National Guard.” “Thank you very much,” Mayor Anton said.

BUSINESS Givin’ You the
By T.J. Clemente When noted Montauk fisherman Jeff Bline said while at sea, “There are no atheists in a storm,” he probably could have added, “and while on land you better have good homeowners insurance.” After the recent Nor’easter which caused, according to county officials, around $30 million in damages—a number that’s growing daily as more estimates are fine tuned—the fury of weather was manifested. Both LIPA and Con Edison officials said the damages to power lines for this last storm, with wind gusts hitting over 70 miles per hour, actually caused more damage to power lines than Hurricane Gloria in 1985. With misfortune comes opportunity, as many homeowners are using insurer’s money to repair damage to their homes, fences and landscapes. In fact, Bartlett Tree Company, caring for the nation’s trees since 1907, came out to the East End to help clean up the devastation that blanketed the area up through New England after the great hurricane of 1938. This last week, on practically every block, you could hear power saws, and see sections of once mighty trees freshly cut into big thick quarters. An official at one of the oldest homeowner’s insurance firms in East Hampton noted that a lot of the tree damage actually results from trees that needed to be serviced beforehand. With the homeowner being either absent or not focused on getting preventive work done, the storms take care of business in an unsafe, unorganized way. The safety risk, she explained, goes beyond home damage to those living in the home. She recommended having an expert check the trees around your home (and the ones that may fall on a neighbor’s home) regularly. I once lived in a village founded in 1668, where huge oaks lined the streets and sat in every yard. After a huge storm, I saw first hand what happens to a children’s bedroom when a tree falls into it. That day I had all my oaks checked, and had the one near the den, where the kids watch TV, taken down.

Monday. This sort of behavior will not be tolerated. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S WEEKLY MESSAGE Myself, my brother Biff and our two wives have been staying since Thursday at the Paradise Island Hotel in the Bahamas, in order to study the elaborate underwater glass subway tunnels that go along the floor of an enormous shark and tropical fish aquarium so subway riders can be entertained by fish and other underwater life swimming close by as they go from station to station. I’ve never heard of anything like this before. This morning we were told the tunnels are not for subway cars but for strollers and tourists. If that turns out to be true, this trip will not be deductible as a business expense and we intend to cut it short. See you soon. But perhaps not.
The Big Business of Big Storms More recently (last weekend) I visited the Home Depot in Patchogue and witnessed the sale of more than 20 chain saws (priced between $75 and $800) while I interviewed a salesperson. They also sold a lot of electric water pumps to get water out of basements due to the high tides that accompanied the two-day windstorm. The fence companies on the East End were impossible to talk to— their response, “too busy, the storm, call back, next week for information.” A new homeowners insurance agent in the East Hampton said he was out almost 16 hours over the weekend of the storm inspecting yards, damaged roofs, a windmill, and garages.
Dear NYC Readers,
eginning April 2, Dan’s Papers is moving from free to paid circulation in Manhattan. Those wishing to read the paper in New York will find it available in hundreds of newsstands and stores around the city—not only on the Upper East Side but on the Upper West Side, Wall Street, the Village, SoHo and numerous locations in Brooklyn. The cost will be $2 a copy. A partial list of locations is at the end of this article. This newspaper, which I founded 50 years ago, was conceived and carried out as the first free newspaper in America. At that time, I reasoned that the new medium of television was free to viewers, and I thought that giving readers a newspaper for free was a right protected and encouraged by our country’s constitution. Television, radio, magazines and newspapers were nearly 100%-supported by advertising back then. It seemed to me that advertisers would eagerly embrace a newspaper that would sacrifice the small revenue it received from individual copy sales, in exchange for a wide distribution five or ten times that size. It had never been done before, and it required some explanation for local merchants. But as it turned out, I was right about that. oday, the playing field is very different and so is Dan’s Papers. On the playing field now are dozens of free ways to get information over the Internet. News is transmitted almost instantaneously. As for Dan’s Papers, it has morphed into a work of art on its cover and a whole lot of opinions on the inside, plus a widely ranging guide to activities on the East End. One could not call it a newspaper or even a magazine. I don’t know what you would call it. Perhaps it is just Dan’s Papers, a category unto itself.
It was his first storm and I think he has a new perspective on selling the right coverage. In Sag Harbor, down at one of the marinas right in the village, a sailboat literally blew off its stands and was lying on its side. There were the usual unfortunately parked cars, now serving as a fallen tree rest. The hardware stores in East Hampton and Bridgehampton were typically busy—not uncommon for this time of year as second homeowners come out and get the homes ready for summer rentals or vacations. In fact one couple from Springs said they came out to experience the storm because they love weather, and now they’re starting a month sooner to whip the house into shape.
Dan’s Papers will remain a powerful free newspaper in the community it serves—Montauk, the Hamptons and the North Fork—supported by many eager advertisers. Beyond the gates that close across the Shinnecock Canal every night at midnight, however, it will embrace the new model—with the ads in the paper providing an extra push in New York for those who pay for them. At the same time, we’re asking those who enjoy the Dan’s Papers stories and covers (a copy of the paper on EBay with a signed cover by Peter Max was recently sold for $139) to pay $2.00 per copy. A small note on the front of every issue will read $2 IN NYC. uring this summer, the paper is proudly celebrating its 50th anniversary with all sorts of events, book readings, races, kite flies and parties. $2.00 NYC/Manhattan A second edition of the best selling memoir In the Hamptons: 50 Years with Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Celebrities, and Billionaires will be out on Memorial Day in all bookstores. It is called, In the Hamptons Too, Further Encounters with Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Celebrities and Billionaires. There was a bake sale for charity last month at our offices and there have been two art gallery exhibits of this author’s cartoons—one at the Wintertree Gallery in Sag Harbor and a current showing at the Stony Brook Southampton college library to continue for a month—and, later this summer, there will be an art auction for charity of original paintings by Dan’s Papers cover artists—Peter Max being one. On the left is the list of where to find Dan’s Papers in New York City. Thank you for reading and enjoying Dan’s Papers.

The Sheltered Islander Jesse James Rides Roughshod Again... I’ve been a big Sandra Bullock fan for years— ever since The Net. It was one of the first films where the heroine didn’t need rescuing rom Prince Charming because she outsmarted her nemesis all by herself. I loved it. Now, while she probably hasn’t even landed from her Oscar-win high, she’s slammed to the depths by the person she loved and lauded on every talk show since she married him: Jesse James. We all thought he was a stand up guy. Tattooed and intense, espousing to be a reformed alcoholic, he won us all over with what appeared to be unshakable integrity. And now, with his recent admission of an affair with a woman who is so tattooed (she even has a tattoo on her forehead), he rends his carefully crafted “bad boy gone good man” in twain. He’s like Peter Cook, the moron who cheated on Christie Brinkley. I guess for Sandra, like dear Christie, it’s not enough to be beautiful, have a flawless figure, be a millionairess, be on the A-list, and—the capper—by all accounts be a genuinely decent and moral person. I can only imagine the pain Sandra is feeling today. After praising him in her acceptance speech, today she must feel a ton of humiliation on top of the hurt. What does a woman have to do to be enough for a man? I asked myself that, but then it occurred to me, that’s the wrong perspective. I think we should ask why can’t a man realize when good is good enough? What’s wrong? She doesn’t look like the girl
you married? How close do you look like the guy she married? Did you allow your body to be stretched and ravaged by pregnancy with rotten kids that now only want money and car keys? What’s wrong? She doesn’t cook gourmet? Why is that? She couldn’t find the time to study gourmet cooking between working full time, wrangling kids, making sure your bait was thawed by morning, and doing household chores? What’s wrong? She’s not a freak in the bedroom? Did you shower before you got in bed? When was the last time you saw a dentist? Were you considerate all day today, or did you just start being nice at 9 p.m.? Do you still think she’s turned on by a disgusting porn tape, or have you finally realized she’s just pretending for your sake? What’s wrong? She doesn’t make enough money so you can pay all the bills and get all the toys? Apparently no woman can make enough money for a man. If Christie and Sandra can’t do it, none of us can. What’s wrong? She doesn’t get along with your mother? YOU don’t get along with your mother. You’ve just put it on your wife to be the buffer, meaning whipping boy, between the two of you. When your Mom calls, do you signal your wife to give you the phone or wave her off and dive for the nearest exit, because you don’t your mother asking you questions that always lead to her giving you advice that you know you won’t?

And that’s the problem. You didn’t do anything. Good unions, straight or gay, happen when you both realize that you can find 100 people with qualities you like. The trick is finding a partner with bad qualities you can stand. Don’t want more, choose what you have. Unless the issues are major, like addiction or similar, work to stay together. Somewhere I heard a great saying; “There’s no perfect fit in an off the rack world.” Good luck Sandra. You have a lot of women in your corner.

ion in the village, is. Smokers may not light up within 50 yards of that beach’s concessions stand, building, deck, and handicapped accessible ramps, also from 9 to 5. Interestingly, if this law is passed, people will be able to walk from the beach, past the pavilion and to their cars with clothing failing to cover between the top of the areola and the point midway between the hip and the knee, but, on this journey, will be banned from smoking. Once they get past the 50-yard boundary, however, the reverse will become true. They must wear the more modest clothing that the village calls for, but they can light up. The law proposing the smoking ban was passed on March 23. There will be several public hearings, and there is the hope among the trustees that the ban can be voted into law before the start of the summer tourist season.

The Hamptons Ranks High on Barron’s List By T.J. Clemente The vacation home is where you go when you want to get away from home. It’s often the beacon around which the whole family rallies, or where one goes solo just to think. The primo vacation homes are usually close to an ocean, a lake, the mountains or even the desert. Proximity to a favorite golf course or tennis facility may be de riguer, but one thing it always has is a special worth beyond the reality of its value as an investment. Recently, Barron’s published its list of the Top Ten Locations for vacation homes. Needless to say, Hawaii’s Maui ranked first— even with home prices there plunging 27%. I suppose sitting on your porch watching a rainbow over a volcanic ocean beachfront, wearing shorts, T-shirt and sipping a frozen drink must still have panache. Right after Maui, ranked Number 2, was the resilient Kiawah Island, South Carolina, where homes dropped reportedly 21%. And at Number 3, close to the money pits of the alleys that make up Wall Street, is the venerable Hamptons, which singer/songwriter Rod Stewart described as, “A group of so many amazing towns, they gave them all just one name.” The Wall Street Journal said Hampton homes were down 30% from their peak prices, however the median home price remains at a respectable $1.5 million with, shall we say, lots of upward mobility on the up side. Consider the beautiful $39.5 million listed home off of Georgica I visited last month, juxtaposed to an
under $300,000 home, a recent new listing in the Springs. With the lucky few still bagging those record bonuses on Wall Street, there have been some great buys in recent times— one Southampton broker closed on eight homes over $4.5 million each. She’s having no trouble paying her Cadillac health plan premium this year. For the rest of the real estate agents, it’s not just business as usual but the optimism of a stable, if not climbing, market bouncing off the ouches of two years of instability, stillness and moneyless months. Whenever I talked to the seasoned brokers or firm presidents, like Peter Turino, of Brown, Harris, Stevens or Judi Desiderio of Town and Country, I always admire both their confidence in the Hamptons real estate market and their awe of its backbone. Last year, when the world seemed to be coming to an economic end, Bridgehampton National Bank CEO Kevin O’Connor sat in the bank’s boardroom during an interview and pointed at the Atlantic Ocean. While voicing concern at the time, he said he wasn’t worried long-term, saying “That ocean is why the East End will always be a solid investment for a vacation home.” And since its their season now, I must mention Palm Beach, the land of shopping Worth Avenue or playing golf at the Breakers, not to mention the courts at Palm Beach Bath and Tennis. It came in seventh place as perhaps the old money is, well, growing too old. I remember a wedding at the church Bethesda
by the Sea, on an 88 degree day, as an elderly Dutch Shell oil heiress, wearing a full length mink coat and Treetorn sneakers, was carried in by her chauffer. There was a lot of Florida on the bottom of the Top Ten with eighth place going to Captiva-Sanibel Island, and tenth place going to Gasparilla Island on the Southwest Florida coast where the median home price had fallen 18%—to $1.8 million (again according to Barron’s via WSJ.) As for the Hamptons the phrase is “as goes Wall Street goes the Hampton’s real estate market.” With those still left standing at the key firms, the bonuses were robust this year so there will be some more splashes to be announced before the summer season begins. High-end seasonal as well as year-round rentals are filling nicely. A rising tide raises all boats, so hopefully, once again things will soon be in a positive float. Inventory numbers are still on the high side, but time on the market is coming down for properly price homes. The new market is being put together without the fraudulent highflying nonverification jumbo loans that cooked the last market, which means properties are moving into stronger hands. The truth is, with train and Luxury Liner access to the city, as well as car and for the few fortunate, the helicopter or private plane, the Hamptons is a vacation home location that is quickly accessed, meaning more time at your home away from home. It’s also a wise investment.

Honoring the Artist: Joanne Rosko This week’s cover featuring Accabonac Harbor by Joanne Rosko is certainly a welcome after the long, hard winter. The Harbor is not only a familiar image for those who live here but also a promise of spring. Rosko’s images generally convey an expectation of what is possible in nature from a literal and figurative perspective. The nature scenes are real, yet they are loaded with emotional intensity, such images are both objective observations and subjective introspection. Consider settings like Louse Point, Sagaponack’s Hedges Lane or a boat at the edge of the Bay (“At Rest”) where the eye is led out
beyond the horizon. Along the way, the viewer experiences the cool water, sweet grasses and muddy marshes. Q: You paint out-of-doors when you can which is still a treasured oddity. Tell us about the experiences you had at Accabonac Harbor. A: I went at least a dozen times to paint this image, I’ve gone at different times of the day and in the snow. I’ve also painted from different angles. I don’t always finish the painting on site in the winter. I have them two thirds done. Q: Which works do you decide to finish in the studio? A: Whichever ones evoke a feeling. When I see
the image, if I can remember how I felt when I was painting it, that’s the one I finish. I don’t go by photographs that I took. I can usually remember what was happening at the time, what I ate that day. Q: Where are your favorite places to paint? A: I like to paint from the dunes on the Bay, on Sunday mornings. Q: Besides the Bay, what are some other favorite subjects? A: Wineries, like Wolffer Estate Vineyards which I paint from two different views. You get kind of a more abstract feeling due to the rows of grapes. I also enjoy Palmer Vineyards in the North Fork. A good friend’s daughter got married there, and I gave her a painting of the vineyard. That meant a lot to both of us. Q: I bet you paint other scenes that mean a lot to you. A: Yes, like Agawam Park where my children used to play. Q: You were a landscape gardener for a long time. How and why did you get into art? A: I went back to school for Early Childhood Education and took an art course as part of the program. I had so much fun doing it. That course opened my eyes to how I feel when I painted. Q: Were there other influences? A: I can remember wanting to be an artist since the time I went to my first museum. Q: How about your parents? Did they have an impact? A: My mother was a nurse and wrote poetry. She was into crafts, she was always making things. My mother was encouraging. She’d always say, “You can do what you want.” Q: How about your experiences with nature and how that influenced you? A: I got interested in nature when I majored in landscape and when I grew up in upstate New York. I’m from another generation. We were never bored even if we didn’t have a T.V. We weren’t pushed from one activity to another. We could look at nature close-up. I have been exposed to so many forms of nature. Q: How do you think you’ll change in the future? A: I’ll get more loose, let go of the realism. But it takes effort. I may begin that way, to let go. Then I’m in my own world. –Marion Wolberg Weiss Ms. Rosko will be in the Plein Air Peconic show this summer at the Southampton Historic Society, “Preserving Our Heritage.” Her website is web.mac.com/Joanne Rosko

House Home guide Using Color to Bolster Spring Cleaning I have collected from magazines over the years and keep in ring binders. Although I am now quite facile with the Internet, I still prefer these binders because it represents a wonderful array of designers from past to present. I adore the rooms of Billy Baldwin, Miles Redd, Charlotte Moss, Dorothy Draper, Barbara Southerland, Albert Hadley, Bunny Williams, Sister Parish, Elsie de Wolfe and David Hicks. In many of these rooms color is a predominate theme that frames and defines the space. I am immediately drawn to a room Billy Baldwin designed in the 1950s and note the freshness of the blue and green combination, which is still relevant and could very well be in a magazine spread today. There is a timelessness to a well-designed room with smart color choices. Of course, we all know how poor color choices can set the design in the wrong direction. Dull, overly dark or bright, muddy or simply the wrong combinations for a particular space, can overpower or fall flat. To help understand how a particular color will

By Tamara Matthews-Stephenson Spring is just around the corner, and recently Mother Nature has gifted us with glimpses of what is yet to come in the months ahead. It is refreshing to enjoy a beautiful sunny day after enduring such a harsh winter. I anticipate the tiny flower buds that will soon peek from under the soil, remembering that Spring is the season where the East End shines. As I survey my tired yard, I realize there is another month before I can start digging in the dirt and preparing my garden. I cringe at the brown patch beyond the picket fence, knowing the only preparation for now is watering the little boxes of plants sunning on my window sill. Soon enough, they’ll be sprouting and I will transport them outside. In the meantime, I have that nagging feeling many of us get this season to clean closets and inject light into my home. I focus my energy on sprucing up my nest with a new coat of paint in two rooms, changing the colors. I just finished choosing a color scheme for a client’s home in Manhattan, so I have the fresh memory of how this tranformed the apartment. Painting is a relatively inexpensive way to freshen up a home, so I pull out my color wheel and begin the adventure. One of the factors that inspired me to become a decorator is the feeling I get when entering a room where all the elements fit together nicely. Color is a powerful theme that weaves throughout many well-designed homes, and if chosen carefully, the color choices define the space. The right hue helps create the intended ambience and draws you in. Consistent with my design philosophy, I go for classic appeal and avoid trendy concepts. I ask, “Is this a room that my client or I can live in today, or in 10 years?” I pick my colors – orange for an equestrianinspired bedroom with brown and tan accessories, and a mellow blue for a well-lit guest bedroom. I thumb through my collection of favorite rooms that
work in a room, I opt for a few boards painted in different choices, and rather than set against a white wall, scatter them in various areas of the room to view during different times of day (and different light). I recently changed a guest bedroom for a client from a taupe to a lovely apple green. The pretty boxwood that grazed outside the window began to sparkle, set against the lighter shade of green on the walls. Somewhere else the taupe would have been a lovely choice, but in this particular space it was dull. It feels as if the entire room has been re-decorated. With my blue and orange paint swatches in hand, I head out the door. I plan to buy small cans of paint in various colors and a few boards for each room to begin my “spring cleaning” project, because, quite frankly, I will do anything to avoid cleaning my closets. Happy Spring!

Recognizing When a Dog is in Crisis A few weeks ago, by way of e-mail, I received an invitation to the “Animal Lovers Lecture Series” at the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School and Hospital. I could not resist this one. Actually I couldn’t wait to go, and now I can share some of what I learned, with you. The lecture was hosted by Dr. Erika L. Reineke, Assistant Professor of Emergency and Critical Care. Dr. Reineke dedicates her practice to treating life threatening conditions. I took a seat in the front row of the lecture hall, as close to her as possible, with the excitement of a kid on their first day of school. Most of the information pertains to dogs, so anyone who loves and cares for a canine family member…this is for you!
There are always signs to look for and be aware of, that can help you help your dog in a health crisis. To start with be aware of your dog’s mentation and responsiveness. Is Chester acting normal? Is he not his “usual” self? Does he refuse to eat, drink or play? Is he drinking excessively? Is he pacing and can’t seem to find a comfortable place to rest? Does he seem confused? This information is a general reference for the purpose of stimulating and enhancing your awareness. My goal is to interest you in asking your veterinarian to show you exactly what to look for and how to look for it, if you believe your dog’s health is questionable. In addition, the following is a list of vital signs and things we can check for.
Rebates & Tax Credits of up to $3,500. 1317042
1. BODY TEMPERATURE A. Should be 100.5 – 102.5 B. Should be taken with a rectal thermometer – NOT MERCURY. Get a rectal digital thermometer. You can also use it under your dog’s armpit. 2. DEHYDRATION A. Check your dog’s gums. They should be pink. Abnormal coloring would appear to be red, brown, yellow, white or blue. This does not include black or liver stained pigmentation of normal healthy gums. B. Check for a 2 second blanching responsiveness by pressing inside the lip with your finger. C. Check your dog’s skin by tenting the skin over your dog’s neck and back. The skin should go back into place immediately. (An example would be like pulling the skin on the back of your hand). 3. HEART RATE A. Should be 60 beats per minute for large dogs B. Should be 140 beats per minute for small dogs C. Heart rate can be checked by placing your fingers on your dog’s groin or on his chest where it meets his elbow, in the same manor you would check your own pulse. 4. RESPIRATORY A. Your dog’s breathing rate should be 12-24 breaths per minute. B. He should not be panting excessively nor panting without obvious reason. (Cat’s should NOT pant.) C. His breathing should be quiet and show no signs of wheezing, congestion or obstruction. The following are what I call “GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM” signs. This list is by no means complete but will hopefully helpful. 1. Effort to inhale or exhale 2. Standing with head or neck extended 3. Unable to lie down 4. Panicked expression 5. Blue gums 6. Noisy breathing 7. Unrelenting vomiting a. Cannot keep food or water down b. Fresh blood in vomit or appearance of coffee grounds 8. Non-productive vomiting 9. Salivating 10. Distended abdomen 11. Numbers 8 and 9 and 10 can be signs of Bloat (Gastric Dilation and Volvulus) the second leading killer of dogs…Do not wait! 12. Unrelenting diarrhea or fresh blood 13. Swelling of the face 14. Uncontrollable shaking 15. Unable to stand Dr. Reineke’s lecture included some helpful “What To Do If’s”, and I will include them in this column but Dr. Reineke’s rule and Jenna’s rule is “If in doubt, PLEASE call your veterinarian, emergency animal service or poison control. KEEP THOSE PHONE NUMBERS HANDY. Mouth to Mouth resuscitation for human to canine would be…Mouth to nose. Hold your dog’s muzzle and breathe into his nose approximately 30 breaths per minute. For allergic reactions you can administer Benadryl, 1 mg/lb. If your dog has ingested something, do not induce vomiting if the object or substance is caustic, acid, petroleum based or sharp. Call poison control if there is any doubt. If you must induce vomiting, you can do so by administering 1 teaspoon or 5 ml. of hydrogen peroxide per 10lbs body weight. Yes, it is extremely difficult to get your dog to swal(continued on next page)

Establish Order, Recycle, Replant Some things just need to be put away, like the cross country skis that have been standing next to the door since the last snowfall. Some stuff has to go, we discovered an old pair of bay booties that the dog dragged outside and chewed on in peace under a shrub. But then there are a few things that I need to re-evaluate not because I am feeling sentimental and can’t bear to part with them, but because they could be useful or recycled. A friend got me off to a good start by giving me a beautiful basket of white Hellebores for my birthday that are gracing the kitchen table. So I tossed two amaryllis bulbs out along with a straggly pointsettia, the little terra cotta pots that they were in may make it over to the ARF thrift shop though. I don’t like having things that could potentially be useful sometime in the future hanging around waiting for their moment to shine again. It is time for those spring bulbs that wake up the senses with colors and fragrance. I reused a basket that I had been thinking of getting rid of. It showed up one day with a different friend full of some dinner contribution, so I gave it another chance and potted up some white hyacinths to brighten up an indoor spot. Then I continued the clean sweep outside. The boxwoods that were great for the entire winter were taken out and planted in the ground. The depressing dead evergreen holly and magnolia sprays were banished to the compost pile. The only thing that remains in the pots from the winter are some sprays of eucalyptus that have come through the winter in great condition and they are still fragrant. There was an interesting period during the thaw when they dripped green dye onto the snow, but they seem as fresh as the
So that we could get some of this done, our tools had to be sharpened, oiled and cleaned, a chore in itself. While digging around and fixing a compacted piece of the lawn an old expensive spade fork snapped. It was a really good one, stainless steel tines with a hard plastic handle that finally just separated itself from the head of the spade fork. We decided that recycling was the best route to go as the man who fixed old tools has retired. But when my husband came across that he took me to task for being overzealous. That can be fixed he informed me and rescued it from the pile of things to go. It may not get done for two months, but he does have a good point and I can allow at least one thing to be spared the urge to purge.
day I bought them. I am going to get some more to make the planters look fuller. This was a last minute idea that seems to be lasting through both winter and spring to everyone’s delight. One decision I finally made though was to eliminate a topiary juniper that had been in one of the pots for way too long. My husband had hinted more than once that he did not like it and that it was really time to get rid of it. I had rescued it from a parking lot sale and quite frankly it was not to my taste so out it came after numerous years of indecision, and off it goes making room for something more interesting. To cheer myself up and usher in spring we put pansies, hyacinths, broom, heathers and andromedas in the pots, which we can see through the windows or pass directly by on our way into the house. Seashells were re-glued onto pots where they had fallen off and the sticks from the storm gathered up while we edged the beds. Order was beginning to be established.

low medicine on a spoon so be prepared for emergencies and add a syringe (minus the needle) to your first aid kit. You can get one from your veterinarian. Last but not least, here are some “DON’T FEED THESE TO YOUR DOG” 1. grapes or raisins 2. chocolate-especially bakers or dark 3. drinks or food containing caffeine 4. onions 5. macadamia nuts 6. avocados 7. bread dough 8. products with xylitol (for example, gum) The lecture concluded with more questions than I expected but Dr. Reineke answered them all with the best veterinary medical advice possible coupled with a genuine and obvious love for her profession and concern for those patients she has yet to meet.

Maintenance and Concierge Services for your house and property Ensure your home is in good hands while you are away
By David Lion Rattiner One of the most important aspects of your home is the heating and airconditioning system. Without a good heating system in a home, nearly everything is vulnerable to major damage, especially during the winter time. Water is an enemy of a home, and if your pipes burst because your heating system fails, everything from your walls to your floors will be in need of some serious repair. Air conditioning in the summer time is a matter of human comfort. Airconditioning can be argued as one of the best inventions mankind has ever developed in terms of improving life quality. Not having a good airconditioning system in your home can lead to late nights with no sleep and to uncomfortable hot rooms during the day. There is a business known as GallettAir, which has
27 years of experience in installing and maintaining heating and air-conditioning systems in Nassau and Suffolk counties. The company opened their second location in Hampton Bays and have a strong reputation. They specialize in all phases of heating and air conditioning service and installations including all makes of heat pump systems.

House Home guide
Improving the “Chi” of Your Home By David Lion Rattiner As Jerry Seinfeld would say, “What is the deal with Feng Shui?” Well I’m glad you asked. Just the words Feng Shui themselves are a major accomplishment. The phrase has stood the test of time for over 3,000 years to keep a healthy and happy home environment. Translated into English, the two words mean Wind Water. In Chinese cultures, wind and water are associated with good health, good fortune and happiness. Why wouldn’t you want to bring this into your home? We get the philosophy of turning your home into a happy place, but what are the details? What does
Feng Shui preach in terms of action? The Chinese believe that the world is made up of "Chi" or energy. Depending upon how that energy flows, the outcome could be good or bad, particularly inside a home. This philosophy is applied in acupuncture healing, where needles are used to guide your energy in a healthier way. A Feng Shui consultant will use something called a "lo-pan" and the "Ba-Gua," to do an analysis of a home. The Ba-Gua is an octagonal grid containing the symbols of the I Ching, the ancient oracle on which Feng Shui is based. In a nutshell, the Feng Shui consultant will start turning the “Chi” in your home from a negative to a positive, thus curing

your home and bringing health and happiness into your life. One of the first things that Feng Shui addresses is the amount of natural light a home gets and the air quality of the home. The more natural light the better, and of course, air quality is viewed as extremely important, thus the addition of plants into a Feng Shui home. A home that does not have a lot of natural light can be fitted with full-spectrum light bulbs that will enhance the lighting quality. A Feng Shui consultant will also check how your front and backdoors line up. If your front door is directly in line with the backdoor of your house, this is viewed as a big negative because the Chi in your home goes in through the front and gets sent out the back. A way of solving this problem is by adding a large plant or obstacle in between the two doors to help block the Chi. This is a big principle in Feng Shui and one should always look to make sure that your front and back doors do not align. A consultant will also make a huge effort to create a joyous and happy space within your home. This is done through the use of many easy-to-find items that many people simply forget to add to their homes. Such things as light music, running waterfalls, wind chimes, bright colors, flowers and plants are all a big part of activating happiness in your life and brining in positive Chi. A simple way to Feng Shui up your house is to purchase indoor plants or an electronic waterfall that can be purchased at just about any home goods store. The colors of your home are also important with Feng Shui and it is based on your birth elements, which can be calculated by visiting any Feng Shui website or by purchasing a Feng Shui book. Your birth element can determine what colors you should make your home according to Feng Shui. For example, if you are an earth element, then the colors of your home should be painted with light yellow, beige and other various earthy/sand colors. If you are a metal element, then Feng Shui recommends you use gray and white colors in your home.

House Home guide
By Susan Galardi
Pesticides & Hormones: Think Before you Spray and let them fly away home. Yellow jackets? If they’re inside, I hit them with quadruple layers of wet paper towel, tie it up in a plastic bag and throw it in the outdoor trash. If they’re flying in and out of any type of opening on the exterior of my house where there appears to be a nest – well, it’s Jim’s Busy Bee. Both and our son are I am allergic to their venom. The swarming ants? Annoying, but harmless. I know from coming out here 25 years that these too shall pass. That’s basically my strategy. If it doesn’t pose a serious threat to my family’s health (grubs that destroy lawns, chipmunks that lived in a sophisticate underground maze around my pool), I try to live with it or deal with it in the most nontoxic, un-harmful way possible. But there’s one menace that I’ve had to take a more aggressive stance with: ticks. We live in a neighborhood with a high concentration of deer. I was treated for Lyme’s last summer. Our son likes to play outside, I like to garden. So what do we do about these insects that carry such serious illnesses? I spray. But I opt for the organic stuff. I do this for many reasons, and urge you to investigate organics if Beth Troy
Spring on the East End is amazing. The birds are singing (as opposed to calling), little pastel green things are budding, and the plagues are beginning. Yes, plagues. All of a sudden, millions of insects of any given species hatch and POW! A plague of biblical proportions. Last weekend it was male ants. Zillions of them swarming in the yard. My son and his friend were undaunted. I was disgusted. In addition, a yellow jacket was in the playroom on Saturday, and every day for a week, I’ve been finding at least one ladybug in the windowsill above the kitchen sink or right in it. After many years in the city, where no insect of any type was welcomed (I once darted out of my own apartment down to 81 St. when a palmetto bug flew in through an open window), my first instinct is to reach for the swatter, heavy boot or spray. Then we had a child. Spiders? Can’t scream like a girl and kill them anymore, not unless I wanted to give our little boy a complex (as my mother would say). No, I’ll gather them somehow into a glass and free them. Now that our son is older, I explain, after squishing it, “Honey, the problem is that most spiders are good, but some – like the brown recluse that April Gonzales wrote about that gives people big, hideous, oozing sores – are really poisonous. I can’t take a chance.” Squish. Ladybugs? That’s easy. Just get them to crawl onto a napkin (so you don’t hurt their delicate lady legs)
spraying is a route you must take. First, there’s proof that the pesticides that kill ticks also cause cancer in humans. Second, some pesticides and chemicals in lawn fertilizer cause other problems. There’s a very strange, disturbing illness in children called Central Precocious Puberty (CPP). Children afflicted with it develop secondary sexual characteristics of early puberty – facial hair on boys, breasts on young girls, pubic hair for both genders – by the ages of 8 or 9. Early puberty can put girls at higher risk of sexual abuse, and subject girls and boys to teasing or bullying and mental health disorders. One of the causes of CPP is chemicals that fall under the category of endocrine disrupters, found in pesticides and lawn fertilizer. They disrupt the normal production of hormones. (Also, BPA, the chemical found in most plastic bottles, has also been linked. If you’re still giving kids plastic bottles and especially plastic containers of food, switch to metal.) Almost every pest control company out here offers less toxic alternatives to pesticides for mosquitoes and ticks. It’s something to consider while your children are children, and before they mature even sooner than we’d like.

Life S tyle Raving Beauty
By Janet Flora
Colon Hydrotherapy, for Better Looks and Health
Could clearer skin, easier weight maintenance, overall wellbeing and better looks be as simple as improving the health of your colon? Mae West credited her vitality and lasting beauty to colon hydrotherapy. It has been reported that Princess Diana was an outspoken advocate of colon cleansing and credited the treatment with curing her fatigue, allergies, infections and migraines. Colon hydrotherapy, colon cleansing, or colonic irrigation is a practice used to flush away the excess waste in the colon. AltMD.com states: “Colon hydrotherapy reached the United States in the 1920s and ‘30s. During that time colonic irrigation machines were used in hospitals and doctors’ offices.” But today it’s a practice that you find mostly used by holistic and alternative heath care professionals. There are two commonly used methods of colon irrigation: the closed system and the open system. The open system, commonly known as the Libbe system, is FDA approved. This system allows the client
more privacy, and there is less involvement from the therapist. The closed system, which is the more traditional system, has been in use for decades and requires constant supervision of the therapist. This is often referred to as The Woods Gravity Technique. To find out more about this technique I spoke to Philomena Papirnik of Heath of 57th at 448 West 57 Street in Manhattan. Papirnik, who first studied Ayurvedic Medicine at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has been a colon therapist practicing the Woods technique for over nine years. “By using the Woods Gravity method, I can individualize each treatment,” she said. Unlike the open method, Woods Gravity is not a one size fits all for each client. In fact, Papirnik has on occasion turned a client away if she discovers that what they need, want and or expect is something that she is unable to deliver. She has referred clients to physicians or suggested they see one before beginning treatment. But this does not happen too often
since most of her clients are regulars, or have researched both the treatment and the therapist. “In the hour-plus treatment time that I spend with a client, I am listening to them throughout the session to work with them, not just on them,” she said. One of Papirnik’s clients I interviewed for this piece said, “Philomena’s colonic hydrotherapy has greatly helped with my recent weight loss. I recently suffered a mild heart attack and my doctor recommended that I lose 25 pounds, immediately, begin eating properly, and begin taking new medications. Philomena’s colonics have made all of these transitions possible without the stress that usually accompanies such stressful changes. My cardiologist was in complete agreement when I asked if he thought colonics would be helpful.” Vibeke Seelye, of The Hamptons Rejuvenation Center (631-725-1362) has been a colon therapist on the East End for the past 18 years. “One of the many benefits clients see is an enormous improvement in their skin,” she said. “Gloomy skin fades and healthy color returns.” Colon hydrotherapy is not usually a treatment you do once. Clients get the most benefits when they have colonics on a regular basis. The frequency of the sessions is individualized to each person. Colon hydrotherapy is not for everyone, but to find out if it is for you, do your research and find a therapist who’s experienced, and one that you feel will listen to you and your body. It just might be the secret to better health and beauty.

Perfect Passover The first two nights of Passover, celebrated this year on March 29 and 30 respectively marks the spring festival of the exodus from Egypt and the liberation of the Israelites from slavery. The Passover Seder is an intimate, orderly and joyful family celebration where family members along with friends of all persuasion sit around a decoratively set table complete with ritual dishes such as matzo (unleavened bread), maror (a dry fruit and nut paste) denote the mortar for the bricks the Israelites used to build the pyramids, bitter herbs to remember the bitter experience, hard cooked eggs, the beginning of life and sweet wine – wine is always a celebration. These dishes signify various aspects of the liberation. Participant take turns reading passages from the Haggadah, the book that recalls the Israelites flight to freedom. A festive meal follows and different cultures within the Jewish community generally prepare the beloved foods of their origins. Few take a more adventurous path from the traditional meal of their heritage. I will be joining my brothers family up Island for Passover and bringing one of my mother’s heirloom Sephardic recipes, pastel de carne, a kind of matzo lasagna in that a savory meat filling is sandwiched with matzo rather than pasta. This rich dish is served in small squares as it is just one of many dishes served at the Seder. PASTEL CON CARNE FOR PASSOVER I cherish my mother’s heirloom dishes and pastel con carne is a particular favorite for Passover. For serving it is cut into squares much like lasagna.

Arts & Entertainment Celebrating Women’s History Month, and Beyond By Stacy Dermont Geneticists concluded in 1987 that every person on Earth can trace his or her lineage back to a single common female ancestor who lived about 200,000 years ago. The scientists gave this common female ancestor the catchy moniker, “Mitochondrial Eve.” This groundbreaking study was led, naturally, by a woman, Dr. Rebecca Cann. Most history books were written by men. Typically local history books focus on the great men who shaped our East End culture. There are a lot of books about Long Island history, only a few focus on women. Of course we all know that women were there throughout, “holding up half the sky,” as the Chinese proverb says. The Southampton Historical Museum’s current exhibition, “Southampton Women Who Made a Difference,” curated by Dr. Gaynell Stone, helps fill in the gaps – it shows in photographs, biographies and samples of art, how East End women, past and present, shaped Long Island’s culture and history. The exhibit is on view at the Rogers Mansion, Tuesday through Saturday, until May 1. Designed by Jeff Thayer, the exhibition’s layout itself is telling. Bordered by a fully outfitted cooking hearth on the South wall and a window seat full of quilts on the North, this is truly the story of many women’s lives. “The female sphere” as the Victorian’s called it, included only the home and church on Sunday. Back then education was often limited to learning to read well enough to reference The Bible. From dawn to dusk, from cradle to grave, “a woman’s work was never done.”
Charlotte Fortune, Dr. Emma Bellows, Elaine Benson Of course our most celebrated foremothers were those who flouted convention to get things done in the larger world. Today’s women struggle to balance family/career/housework/self. But the women who ran this gauntlet in times past succeeded in the face of far steeper obstacles. Emma Bellows was born in Hampton Bays when it was still named Good Ground. Her parents encouraged their smart daughter to pursue higher education. She became a physician when only four American medical schools accepted women. Dr. Bellows performed all manner of operations and delivered many of Southampton’s older residents. She had an area of specialization, though, and it was a tender one. Her accomplishments in the area of Proctology were widely known and it earned her the respected nickname “The Rear Admiral.” In addition to maintaining a substantial practice that frequently paid her in farm produce, in place of cash, Dr. Bellows also wrote a weekly history column and a memoir. For those of us who have read Dr. Bellows’ book,
Dear NYC Readers,
eginning April 2, Dan’s Papers is moving from free to paid circulation in Manhattan. Those wishing to read the paper in New York will find it available in hundreds of newsstands and stores around the city—not only on the Upper East Side but on the Upper West Side, Wall Street, the Village, SoHo and numerous locations in Brooklyn. The cost will be $2 a copy. A partial list of locations is at the end of this article. This newspaper, which I founded 50 years ago, was conceived and carried out as the first free newspaper in America. At that time, I reasoned that the new medium of television was free to viewers, and I thought that giving readers a newspaper for free was a right protected and encouraged by our country’s constitution. Television, radio, magazines and newspapers were nearly 100%-supported by advertising back then. It seemed to me that advertisers would $2.00 NYC/Manhattan eagerly embrace a newspaper that would sacrifice the small revenue it received from individual copy sales, in exchange for a wide distribution five or ten times that size. It had never been done before, and it required some explanation for local merchants. But as it turned out, I was right about that. oday, the playing field is very different and so is Dan’s Papers. On the playing field now are dozens of free ways to get information over the Internet. News is transmitted almost instantaneously. As for Dan’s Papers, it has morphed into a work of art on its cover and a whole lot of opinions on the inside, plus a widely ranging guide to activities on the East End. One could not call it a newspaper or even a magazine. I don’t know what you would

Memoirs of a Town and Country Doctor, a favorite story is that of a local bigwig who traveled up-island for the treatment of a very personal problem. He wanted to avoid being treated by a woman – but “the real hospital” had brought in a specialist to treat him. That’s right, “The Rear Admiral” gave a posterior performance. Another woman who made a difference, and a place for herself in a narrow world, was Charlotte Smiley Fortune. In addition to being discounted for being born female, “Carrie” was born a slave in Florida. Her dressmaking skills brought her to Sag Harbor in the late 19th century to serve the wife of a ship’s captain as her personal dressmaker. Ms. Fortune’s fortunes improved over the years and she taught other women of color the art of dressmaking. Among her students were Mary Jane Hempstead and Ms. Hempstead’s nieces “the Green girls,” Mary, Christina, Susan, Sadie and Priscilla. With their earnings these women bought Sag Harbor real estate. They began renting out cottages and houses throughout Eastville, the traditionally mixed race neighborhood. These rentals paved the way for African Americans to summer in Sag Harbor throughout the 20th century to today. Over 30 fascinating women are featured in this exhibition. No exhibition of influential, colorful local women would be complete without Bridgehampton’s own Elaine Benson (1924-998). Benson arrived in her “new home town” from Philadelphia in 1964. She and her husband opened an art gallery that gave many (continued on next page)
call it. Perhaps it is just Dan’s Papers, a category unto itself. Dan’s Papers will remain a powerful free newspaper in the community it serves—Montauk, the Hamptons and the North Fork—supported by many eager advertisers. Beyond the gates that close across the Shinnecock Canal every night at midnight, however, it will embrace the new model—with the ads in the paper providing an extra push in New York for those who pay for them. At the same time, we’re asking those who enjoy the Dan’s Papers stories and covers (a copy of the paper on EBay with a signed cover by Peter Max was recently sold for $139) to pay $2.00 per copy. A small note on the front of every issue will read $2 IN NYC. uring this summer, the paper is proudly celebrating its 50th anniversary with all sorts of events, book readings, races, kite flies and parties. A second edition of the best selling memoir In the Hamptons: 50 Years with Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Celebrities, and Billionaires will be out on Memorial Day in all bookstores. It is called, In the Hamptons Too, Further Encounters with Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Celebrities and Billionaires. There was a bake sale for charity last month at our offices and there have been two art gallery exhibits of this author’s cartoons—one at the Wintertree Gallery in Sag Harbor and a current showing at the Stony Brook Southampton college library to continue for a month—and, later this summer, there will be an art auction for charity of original paintings by Dan’s Papers cover artists—Peter Max being one. On the left is the list of where to find Dan’s Papers in New York City. Thank you for reading and enjoying Dan’s Papers.

Gospel Singer Kim Burrell in SH By Stacy Dermont This Saturday, March 27, Gospel Great Kim Burrell will take the stage of Southampton High School to perform a concert of what she calls “jazz gospel.” The event is being organized by local pastor Dr. Frank Anthone White and King’s Chapel Church of Southampton. Rare among gospel artists, Rev. Burrell writes most of the material that she records and performs, making her a “quadruple threat,” songwriter/arranger/singer/pianist. In the words of Harry Connick Jr., “If she’s not the greatest musical mind I’ve ever been around, she’s certainly up at the top of the list.” Burrell is featured on Connick’s 2006 release, All These People, a benefit effort to support New Orleans Habitat Musicians Village. Plus she is a religious leader, serving as Assistant Pastor at Jericho City Church of God in Christ (COGIC) in Dallas, Texas. Burrell’s first studio album in 11 years, titled No Ways Tired, was released in April, 2009. If you think it’s premature to call Burrell a “gospel great,” you haven’t heard, “her velvet rasp.” Burrell is frequently referred to as “this generation’s Ella Fitzgerald.” Let us drop names. In addition to Harry Connick Jr., Rev. Burrell has worked with Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder, George Clinton, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan and Missy Elliot, to name just a few. At 37, she may still be considered a youngster in the gospel world, only performing professionally since 1995. But remarkably, Burrell has been performing publicly for 36 years. Only when someone records a baby singing in vitro will the story of Burrell’s debut be less amazing. At the age of one Burrell belted out her first church solo, Andrae Crouch’s “Hallelujah.” Gospel music is in her genes, Burrell’s father was also a “Reverend Burrell” and her mother was an Evangelist singer. But all has not been sunny in this Grammy nominee’s life. When she sings about pain, she knows of what she speaks. She spent eight years of her childhood battling double pneumonia, but the lungs held up. After suffering a heart attack on tour last year, Burrell set out to lose 100 pounds. Rumor has it that a reality television show is in the works. Burrell proves that gospel music isn’t just for Christians. The power of her music may not make atheists convert, but this uplifting, transformative sound is a heavenly gift. Expect miracles this Saturday night. Kim Burrell at Southampton High School, 141 Narrow Lane, 7:30p.m., Saturday, March 27. $30/$20 631-283-8029 kingschapelcogic.net

young artists their start and hosted countless fundraisers for local charities. After the loss of her husband, Benson carried on full force. She became a writer, contributing a popular column to Dan’s Papers and authoring the celebrated book, Unmentionables: A Brief History of Underwear. Funded in part by The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), “Southampton Women Who Made a Difference” is deeply local and a pleasure to view. Though, as a needlewoman, I was tortured to see a big rat’s nest of embroidery floss laid out among samples of local handiwork, like it belonged there. Maybe the big, colorful mess is symbolic. Women’s lives intertwine and form a tangle of experiences for their daughters to celebrate and weave into a rich tapestry. “Southampton Women Who Made a Difference” is on view at the Rogers Mansion, 17 Meeting House Lane, Southampton through May 1, 2010.

Over The Barrel... with Lenn Thompson
Photo by Lenn Thompson
You’d think that if you own a winery, you’d be dipping deep into your cellar regularly, enjoying well-aged bottles of your own wine — just because you can. Not if you’re the Massoud family at Paumanok Vineyards. It seems that tasting wines being made, tasting upcoming releases and selling current releases — along with promoting their winery and the entire region — doesn’t leave a lot of time or opportunity to open older bottles. Enter the wineries series of “Grand Vintage Dinners” — the perfect opportunity for local wine lovers (and the family behind them) to taste some of the best wines the winery has ever put out. Wines are only labeled “Grand Vintage” when the wine deserves it. You can think of it as a more meaningful version of “reserve” bottling. The Grand Vintage dinner I attended focused on six different vintages of Grand Vintage Merlot and the experience was, in a word, spectacular. If it was a treat for people with ready access to these wines, it was far more for me. With five delicious courses that were prepared for more than 50 guests by local chefs Tom Schaudel and Michael Ross with only a portable six-burner stove, the wines took center stage. The first course was seared salmon with a Provence-style sauce of tomatoes, olives, capers and garlic, which was served with Paumanok Vineyards 2001 Grand Vintage Merlot. Before years like 2005 (pre-rain) and 2007 came along, 2001 was “the” vintage for Long Island wine, and I was curious how
A Taste of the Past at Paumanok Vineyards
this wine was evolving nine years after its birth. It was showing mature secondary and tertiary flavors of earth, dried herbs and spice layered with dried and fresh cherry fruit. A graphite note worked extremely well with the briny olives and capers. Current winemaker Kareem Massoud, who hadn’t tasted this wine in years told our table that it was tasting “better than I ever remember it tasting.” Next up was grilled quail with mushroom risotto with blueberries and chantrelle mushrooms paired with the 2002 Grand Vintage Merlot. Poured from magnums it was much more youthful and fruit-forward (wines age more slowly in larger bottles), with bright red cherry flavors leading the way with earthy tobacco, spice and savory spice notes. In the larger bottles at least, this wine has plenty of life ahead of it. This may have been my favorite pairing of the evening. Near perfect. For the third course, Jurgielewicz Farm’s Duck Breast with sweet potato-roasted banana puree, haricot verts and a raspberry glaze, we tasted two
widely different wines — the 2004 and 2005 Grand Vintage Merlots. From a cooler perhaps more regionally typical year, the 2004 was almost Burgundian in its mushroomy earthiness, elegant fruit and subtle floral notes. The 2005 was intense with dark, ripe fruit, black licorice and ripe, grippy tannins. It’s still a baby and needs more time to develop and reveal its true self. Before diving into dessert, we were presented with a wedge of truffled pecorino cheese with roasted tomato, extra virgin olive oil, rosemary and fennel pollen. The wine, Paumanok’s 2000 Grand Vintage Merlot, showed nice weight and mature earthy flavors and a distinct minty-eucalyptus note that played off the rosemary well. Red wine with chocolate is a discussion for another column (I’m not a believer) but with a bittersweet chocolate terrine with hazelnuts and raspberry puree, we enjoyed a taste of the just-released (the day of the dinner) Paumanok 2007 Merlot Tuthills Lane Vineyard. Bold, ripe blueberry flavors burst from the glass with licorice, spice, dark chocolate and roasted coffee. This wine is the complete package — ripe, concentrated and extracted, with great structure. If the 2005 is young, this one is an infant. Buy some and lay it down for another 10 years. Or buy more and check in on it every year or so. Paumanok will be hosting two more Grand Vintage dinners this spring — a Magnum dinner on April 24 and a 2001 Grand Vintage dinner on May 22. Visits paumanok.com/events.html for details.

SHINNECOCK Dear Dan, Sorry to hear that the Hamptons no longer includes that stretch between Westhampton and the Shinnecock canal. Turns out that Hampton Bays does have banners spanning Main Street/Montauk Highway like Bridgehampton does. But, like the rest of the economy I guess the Hamptons have to cut back somewhere...
Put the blinking lights on the deer. -DR
Jim Kelly East Quogue Via e-mail They’re nipping at Shinnecock. -DR SERIOUS Dear Dan, The serious accidents that occur on our roads causing injury, death, and much damage to the cars because of the deer population crossing our roads, have become a big problem that I think I have the answer to. A regular deer crossing sign is not effective enough. The town should use a blinking light on the “Deer Crossing” sign, solar powered (no cost), making the drivers more aware that there are hundreds of deer that cross all of our roads at all times of day. Most of the deer accidents happen from dusk on through the night…
I would love your opinion on this. Thanks. John Linguiti East Quogue Via e-mail
SPRINGS SCHOOL Dear Dan, Sorry, but Springs sends the most students to the school and should pay their share. Rather than this ridiculous notion of “equalized taxes” at the expense of Amagansett and other districts that send a very minimal number of legal, tax paying enrolled students at already exorbitant real estate and school tax rates try paying based upon Spring’s number/percent of students to the total student body. See how that cost would work out. Amagansett tax payers are sick and tired of paying the way for pre-kindergarten (which is nothing more than day care) and the majority of Springs student population of which a certain number are not even paying their fair share of school and real estate taxes. Get to work on that issue before trying to further spread your issues to the rest of us. An emphatic no to Fred Thiele Jr.’s proposal and the Springs School Board. James Amagansett, NY Via Blackberry It’s public school, not private school. The burden should be shared. -DR
Police Blotter Paintball Sniper A man in East Hampton reported to police that he was shot at with paintballs outside of his home. It was described as a drive by paint-balling, as the suspects did not exit the car and took off after they fired. The man was able to describe the vehicle. It was really, REALLY yellow, with polkadots. Rock Someone in Southampton used a rock to smash in a car window and steal a wallet that contained credit cards. The woman reported no cash missing from her wallet and cancelled her cards immediately. An investigation into any unusual charges is underway. The Tax Man Cometh A man in East Quogue was charged with not paying his taxes after he tried to swindle a $100,000 tax bill from the IRS by changing the decimal place to $10,000. The IRS caught on, and the man was charged with two counts of felonies. $100,000 Worth of Jewelry Police are on the hunt for the robber who made of with $100,000 worth of jewelry and nearly $10,000 worth of electronic equipment from an East Hampton home. Part of the jewelry that was stolen was a black pearl necklace, worth an estimated $30,000.
Shelter Island AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Dang deer. That was close. Everybody okay back there? Shelter Island for Real During the drug dealer sweep where police arrested nine individuals in conjunction with cocaine, the East End Drug Task Force arrested a Shelter Island man, Matthew J. Stromberg, 30, and charged him with the criminal sale of a controlled substance in the second and third degree. According to the report, Stromberg was selling MDMA, which is known commonly on the street as ecstasy. The Shelter Island Police Department did an excellent job with the arrest and has vowed to continue working with outside departments to address all and any drug crimes. Suspiciously Securing A man on the North Fork called police after he saw a suspicious man on his property through a security camera that he installed on his property for just this very reason. When police investigated the incident, they learned that the man that was seen on the security camera was the security camera repairman. By David Lion Rattiner
