Tahoe To Go Big Doings Downtown as the Police Unleash their License Plate Reader By Dan Rattiner Last Saturday at 5 p.m., my fiancée and I, together with our dog Moo, got into my Tahoe and drove the two miles to downtown East Hampton to run some errands. First on our list was Gruen Optica on Main Street to pick up a new pair of glasses for me. Jessie had called. They were ready. Finishing there, and with the new glasses in hand, we walked out to the car, which was parked in a spot directly in front of Citarella less than a hundred yards away. It was a lucky thing for us to find such a space on a busy Saturday afternoon in that town. From there, we intended to go to the North Main Street Dry Cleaners and pick up some clothes, then walk over to Crossways Music a few doors down to get some musical equipment we had ordered, then, after dropping off the dog, go to a restaurant for dinner. We had a reservation at seven. None of that ever happened. A police officer was standing by my car, look-

ing at it. I knew the registration and inspection were up to date. I had both of them. What could the problem be? The officer, who I did not know, saw me coming and said something very odd as he walked out into the center of the street. “Mr. Rattiner, I need you to wait for me here, please.” I noticed he was in full regalia, with his badge, gun and equipment strapped on him. As

there had been no terrorism, no break in, no traffic accident, no deaths or injuries. It was about the Tahoe. We waited about five minutes until this officer came back. How could that officer have known my name? I wondered. It’s not on the car anywhere. Officer Jack Bartelemy, for that was the name on the gold tag on his chest, came back. “You are lucky I caught you before you drove off,” he said. “We’re only going to impound your car. You won’t be arrested.” Moo, our Wheaten Terrier, looked at the shiny, ramrod straight police officer through the passenger window. I thought — is there a bomb in the car? I asked, “Is something wrong?” “Oh yes,” he said. “There was a lapse in your insurance. We now have these new radar sensors on the roofs of our police cars. And we can check the license plates of every car on the road just by driving by. When we went by yours, an alarm went off. Your registration was suspended. The insurance had lapsed. The plates have to be taken off and sent up to the Department of Motor Vehicles. And the car goes to the police impound.” “All my paperwork is right up to date. This is

“What about my dog?” I asked. “Are you going to impound him too?” The officer was not amused.

he walked away, I overheard him speak into a microphone that was pinned to his chest. It was in code. Alpha, romeo, tango was all I could get. There were two other police cars parked out front in the street, blocking one of the lanes. Behind us in the Citarella lot there was a big SUPERVISOR police van with the motor running and an officer in it. I would soon learn

The exclusive Hampton Social five-week concert series held at the Ross School last summer that featured acts by Prince, Tom Petty, Billy Joel, James Taylor and Dave Matthews will not happen again this year. Warner Music Group, the company behind the pricey series that cost concertgoers $15,000 for a ticket to all five shows, reportedly lost $18 million on the deal because,“The rich people they were targeting had connections to get the tickets for free so no one was buying.” * * * Ellen and Chuck Scarborough and Marcy and Michael Warren will be honored at the 2nd annual Get Wild event on July 19 to benefit the Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons.

Southampton Town Looks to Stall LIPA Although LIPA began marking the route for new transmission lines last week, the Town of Southampton continues its effort to stall the project. The Southampton Town Chief Building Inspector issued a stop work order last Friday, but it was lifted three days later, and LIPA and the Town continue to discuss a compromise. It was suggested that the additional $10 million it would cost to bury the entire route would come from a surcharge paid by residents over a 20-year time period, but because the Town cannot legally indemnify LIPA if residents refused to pay the surcharge in the future, LIPA denied the request. The Town has agreed not to take legal action, but a group of residents filed a lawsuit against LIPA in New York State Supreme Court in Riverhead last week and are seeking $90 million in damages due to a decrease in property value. Bulova Project One Step Closer After more than a year of consideration, the Sag Harbor Planning Board concluded that the Bulova Watchcase Factory project in Sag Harbor needs no further environmental review and a public hearing for the site plan application will be held on April 7. The project headed by Sag Development Partners has already been favored by the Sag Harbor Architectural Review Board, but the Sag Harbor Zoning Board, which wants 20 percent of the 65 units to be affordable housing, has not yet approved the project. Sag Development Partners claims the affordable housing request is not feasible and have offered instead to give Sag Harbor over $2 million for local housing assistance.

a mistake. I’ll drive it home if you like and I won’t drive it at all after that. Whatever it is, I’ll get it straightened out first thing Monday.” “I can’t let you do that,” Bartelemy said. “The car stays here. It cannot be moved. Except by us.” “It’ll get a ticket. It’s in a one hour zone.” “We’ll watch it.” “You can’t let me just drive it home?” “No. We’ll arrest you if you try.” “So we’re just dumped out here on the street?” This went on for about ten minutes, this back and forth. The officer was very clear about what he had to do. There would be no variation from it. My fiancée Chris, meanwhile, asked if it would be okay for her to go into Citarella for a few minutes. She’d buy us something for dinner. We actually had no dinner at home, because we were planning to eat out. He said go ahead. “What about my dog?” I asked. I was trying veiled sarcasm. A bad idea. “Are you going to impound him too?” The officer was not amused. “We can call the taxicab company to come get you to take you home if you like,” he said. “We’d offer to drive you, but all three cars are on calls.” All three were right there, within the sound of his voice. I looked at the van with the word SUPERVISOR on it still in the Citarella lot. And I walked over to it. There was an officer at the wheel by the name of Morgan. He looked up. “Is this really happening?” I asked.

Bartelemy was a few steps behind. “You can get things out of your car now if you want. You can do it now.” I was persistent. “I don’t understand. You say everything is legal now. So how is there an insurance lapse?” “It’s from something in the past. It could have been just one day. Have you changed insurance companies?” I wanted to know when the insurance lapse took place. This had to be a mistake. We were still over at the SUPERVISOR van when something came in over the radio. “It’s December 17, 2006.” “There was a lapse on December 17, 2006? That’s when I bought the car. There must have been a mix-up from when it got transferred from the dealer to me. That’s all it is.” I named the dealer. “All it takes is a day,” Bartelemy said. “If there was a lapse for even one day, the registration is suspended. It comes in on the computer, and with our new computer scanner, we got it. Hard to believe nobody picked this up before.” I took the registration out of my wallet and showed it to them. It was good until November 30, 2008. There was nothing saying it was suspended and there had been no notice to me that it had been suspended. This was impossible. Morgan, inside the SUPERVISOR van, was talking on the phone. A message coming in on the phone on Bartelemy’s shoulder was inviting him back out to the police car in the middle

of the street. He walked off, but not until he held out his hand, and in it I placed my car keys. So that was it. Chris returned with a bag of groceries from Citarella, which she set on the grass by the side of the Tahoe. I told her how it had all turned out. Then we opened the car doors and I took out a portable car charger, some cash on the dashboard, my wristwatch in the change well, a folding chair and a blanket from the back — I have no idea why I did that — and my dog Moo, who looked at me. What fun place is next, he wanted to know. It was getting colder and I was starting to shiver. We were people with shopping bags, a car charger, a folding chair, a blanket and a dog, standing on the curb next to a white Tahoe parked in front of Citarella. I reached for my cell phone. Time to call a taxi. At that moment, the wrecker with flashing lights appeared to haul off my car. It was Jigger from Balcun’s Gas Station on North Main Street a block away. We know each other. We waved. He seemed a happy camper in all this. As his cable lifted up the front end of my car, Officer Bartelemy wandered over to tell me what I’d have to do on Monday. Go to Riverhead Department of Motor Vehicles. Pay the $8 a day for the time it was uninsured. Get your plates back. Go to the impound and bail out the car for $150. And that was it. “You’ll be done before the end of the day,” the officer said. “Could we have the car towed just to the (continued on page 34)

Springtime Ticks, Beetles, Gypsy Moths, BlackWidow Spiders & the Brown Tide By Dan Rattiner Well, spring has sprung and many of the city people are looking forward to getting back to nature by coming out here to the East End. There’s all our farmland and woods, beaches and hills, ponds and lakes, and it’s all very exciting. Who can ever forget, for example, the gypsy moth outbreaks of 1982, 1989, 2000 and 2001? Nobody knew how to get rid of them, though we do know that they die under an onslaught of heavy rain. The gypsy moths hatch into worms from larvae, climb trees and eat all the leaves, thus leaving the tree to die, and then molt into moths and fly around sometimes in great num-

bers that blot out the sky. In 2001, the last time they were here, they swept through Northwest and North Haven. There was a big inchworm infestation in the trees last year. They really damaged all the hardwood trees. And who can forget the jellyfish outbreak of 2002? The attack was felt worst among the surfer community. Many surfers got bad stings. But the jellyfish did not come back in 2003 and haven’t been seen since. Hopefully this year will be another year without them. Brown Tide, which is made of hundreds of trillions of bits of algae, arrive in droves and turn the surf a ghastly brown and red color,

which is not something you’d like to swim in. But the Brown Tide hasn’t been here since 1990 and before that 1983 and 1984. It covers beaches on the bay side for miles and miles and for months and months. You wouldn’t dare swim in it. Scientists have never been able to figure out what causes it. A rarity here is the Portuguese Man-O-War, but we did see a few of them on our beaches in 1998 and 1999. They look like little blue balloons on the beach, but if you step on them they give you a nasty sting. Treat it with ice. Or go to the emergency room. There was a black widow spider outbreak in (continued on page 32)

BIENVENUE A LA HAMPTONS, MONSIEUR ET MADAM By Dan Rattiner The dollar ain’t worth a plug nickel anymore. And so in Bridgehampton, a former farm town that for some bizarre reason has taken on a French aristocratic air, there are stores that are taking Euros. One of them, Chez Soi, actually has a WE TAKE EUROS sign in the window. I spent a long weekend in Eastern Europe not long ago. I was shocked to find how unimpressed everyone was with the dollar. Honestly, they didn’t want it. Once, in a shop in Sofia, Bulgaria, I found myself out of the local currency, which is the Lev, and thought that some dollars in my wallet might make up for the loss. I

pulled them out, smiled, and said, “Dollars?” Nope. The dollar is so bad that the shopkeeper wouldn’t take any because by the time he went down to the bank to convert it into Lev, it wouldn’t be worth as much as when I gave it to him. Bridgehampton has two French restaurants — Pierre’s near the center of town, and Almond, out at the west end of town. There are French flags flying and, always out in front of Pierre’s, a blue Deux Chevaux, which is an automobile. (Deux Chevaux, get it? Two horses? Get it?) There’s the Cáche Salon, there’s the Blue Provence, where you can get French furniture,

curtains, glasses, kitchenware and even foods such as canned caviar and salmon. Of course, you can shop for housewares at Chez Soi. You can get French tiles and bathroom and kitchen supplies at Urban Archeology, right next door to Le Papier de Dan. Urban Archaeology even sells statuary from France, two of which, bolted into the ground outside, are from L’Arc de Triomphe at L’Etoile at the most westerly end of the Champs-Elysee. Le Euro? Oui! Though Le Euro won’t do you any good at Le Journal de Dan, because that publication is FREE. Bon Chance! •

PORTRAITS OF ST. PATTY’S IN MONTAUK

Photos by Richard Lewin

The 46th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Montauk hosted by the Montauk Friends Of Erin was amazing. This year’s Grand Marshal, Jay Liebell, was all smiles as he led the parade down Main Street. Montauk Police Captain Kevin Sarlo was pleased with the efforts of the East End police officers who helped keep the parade a family affair. Montauk Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Laraine Creegan said that on the perfect, sunny Montauk day, the 1,000 chamber mugs sold faster than any other year.

Coming Clean To Avoid Being Blackmailed, I Confess My Wicked, Wicked Past By Dan Rattiner Now that Governor Spitzer has confessed his sins and resigned, and the new Governor Patterson has held a news conference to announce the various affairs he’s had with women over the years and that he experimented with drugs when young, I thought it would be important for me to do the same. As Governor Patterson said, he was making his revelations because he did not want to conduct the work of his office with the fear that he might be blackmailed. As the founder of this newspaper, I feel the same way. Once, when the driver of a white Mercedes

convertible roared passed me on Ferry Road to beat me to the Shelter Island Ferry, I lied to her when she came over to ask directions to Orient Point. I told her that after we got to the other side, she should drive off and turn left and head west. Once, when a very fat woman asked me if she looked fat, I said yes. You know the junk mail you get asking for a donation because they sent you a little something — a nickel or a plastic silver cross or those peel off stickers with your name and address on them that you can use for letter return addresses? Well, I don’t send those peo-

ple money, but because I don’t believe in waste, I use what they send me. Indeed I have one of those stickers right here on the bottom of my laptop. Here, I’ll peel it off. Sometimes when I pick up the morning paper at Hampton Bagel when there’s a big line of people waiting at the counter for service, I cut in front of everybody, slide my 50 cents onto the edge of the counter where the clerk can see it and then skip out of the store with everybody still waiting in line. I use drugs. In fact, I am taking a drug right now. It’s for a cold and I got it at the drug store. (continued on page 35)

LINDA STEIN: THE BLOOD SPOT ON THE SINK By Janine Cheviot There may be another twist in the murder case of Linda Stein, the “realtor to the stars” who was killed in her Fifth Avenue apartment last October, depending on which lawyer you ask. A medical examiner’s report released last week states that DNA from a person referred to as “Male A” was found mixed with Stein’s blood in a bathroom sink in her apartment. But the suspect being held for the crime, Natavia Lowery, 26, who was Stein’s assistant, is female. Lowery’s attorney, Ronald Kuby, said, “The DNA shows the killer is almost certainly a man.” Kuby sug-

gested that Male A had killed Stein and then tried to scrub his hands clean in her bathroom sink, but left a speck of blood from which the DNA in question was lifted. But according to the Manhattan district attorney’s office, “There’s nothing to suggest the blood came from the murder,” and the DNA only proves that a man may have touched Stein’s sink during the time she lived in the apartment. Kuby accused the DA’s office of downplaying the importance of Male A’s DNA. Despite the new evidence, Lowery, who is five months pregnant, was denied bail and will

remain at Riker’s Island, where she has been held since her arrest in November — much to the disappointment of her 100 supporters wearing “Justice for Natavia” t-shirts who filled the courtroom. Lowery, a Brooklyn native, gave a videotaped confession last November, stating that she bludgeoned her boss with a heavy bar, referred to in a police report as a “yoga stick,” after Stein yelled racial slurs and blew marijuana smoke in her face. Prosecutors said that Lowery murdered Stein at 12:45 p.m. and surveillance cameras (continued on the next page)

There is no Hampton Subway Newsletter this week. Dan’s Papers is trying to determine why that is. We have received no reply from the new Hampton Subway Club, which at the present time is in control of The Hampton Subway, and from where the newsletter comes. We do want to ask readers to please light a candle tonight for the former Commissioner of the

Hampton Subway, Bill Aspinall, who will be sentenced this week for the 114 charges he was convicted of involving graft, embezzlement and so forth and so on. The worst part is that because of the vast number of charges, it is entirely possible that he might receive the death penalty, thus becoming the first person in New York State to be put on death row for a non-capital crime. So light a candle.

Meanwhile, as many of the demonstrators waving signs out in front of the subway entrances have noticed, no trains are running. I think it’s important to realize that the sale of Hampton Subway is a competely private matter. It is, or was, a private company. And if the buyer wants to make a private club out of it, there’s not much anybody can do about that.

show her leaving the apartment building about a half hour later. It was also discovered that Lowery, who had prior to the murder been arrested on charges of identity theft and petty larceny, had stolen tens of thousands of dollars from Stein during the four months she worked for her. And just days after the murder, it was learned that Lowery used Stein’s credit cards to purchase plane tickets and other items. But then a series of inconsistencies followed Lowery’s arrest. First, Lowery retracted her confession, claiming the police in the interrogation room coerced it. Then, medical examiners said that toxicology reports conducted as part of Stein’s autopsy showed that she had not smoked marijuana prior to her death, as stated in Lowery’s confession. In the same week Kuby

The late Linda Stein

claimed that the DA’s office had records of a telephone conversation between Stein and her daughter Samantha at 2 p.m. on the day of her murder, which is 45 minutes after Lowery is shown on surveillance cameras leaving the building. He also claimed that when Stein’s body was found at 10:30 p.m., her body temperature was only 12.6 degrees lower than a living person, indicating that she was not murdered when Lowery was there. But while the defense attorneys are calling the discovery of Male A’s DNA a stunning revelation, the district attorneys say it is “a pedestrian understanding of the medical examiner’s process.” Prosecutors maintain that Lowery murdered Stein, even though no trace of Stein’s blood was ever found on her clothing. Lowery’s next court hearing is scheduled for April 24.

The future location of Georgica Bank in Bridgehampton.

Janet Verneuille

Banking on Georgica Now You Can Get a Piece of the New BankOpening in the Hamptons By Janine Cheviot “It’s a good time to start a bank,” said Chris Becker, President and CEO of Georgica Bank, at a recent presentation for potential investors held at the Bridgehampton Inn. Although I’m not very familiar with the banking industry, I do have investment experience and a business degree, and what he said rang true. With the ongoing mortgage crisis, rise in foreclosures and overall downturn of the economy, starting a new bank, or any new business, might not seem like a good idea. But with a clean balance sheet and availability of credit, Georgica Bank is entering the market at a good time — it didn’t get buried in the current financial crisis, so it won’t have to dig its way out. But none of that matters, of course, if it doesn’t have a solid foundation. So I went to the presentation, along with my colleague

Victoria and about ten other potential investors, to find out who was behind this venture and hear what they had to say. Before entering the Inn, Victoria and I scoped out the parking lot to get an idea of what types of people attended these things — a few BMWs, a Mercedes, a ’98 Buick, a beat-up Chevrolet Cavalier and a taxicab. Interesting. Clearly, many different types of people were curious about Georgica Bank. Once inside, we were offered refreshments, and I spoke with members of the management team. Their backgrounds were impressive: they all had long successful careers at another local bank, but felt passionately enough about Georgica Bank to walk away from the security of their jobs to join this endeavor. I also liked that the organizational team is made up of local businesspeople with

experience in a variety of industries including real estate, insurance, law and architecture. According to them, there is a great need for more personal, one-on-one banking on the East End. I was also impressed that the organizers have invested $3.85 million of their own money in Georgica Bank. During the presentation, we were shown charts indicating the successful stock performance of publicly traded community banks on Long Island and the median annualized rates of return to shareholders who purchased de novo shares during IPO. It was a logical argument — this is a good investment, and they need investors. But that’s what we expected to hear. Becker also explained that this opportunity is for long-term investors (5-7 years), not for someone (continued on the next page)

THE REAL ESTATE TRANSFER TAX IS NOT THE ONLY WAY By David Lion Rattiner It is no secret that the East End is home to farming families who own land worth tens, sometimes hundreds of millions of dollars. The farmers from the East End are a cherished part of the culture in the Hamptons and a big part of the appeal of the area. Local farmers and their farm stands attract the bigwigs of Manhattan, who come out here and in turn spend millions of dollars on their homes and the local economy. But these two groups have always had a very odd relationship. The land buyers from Manhattan want to own farmland because it is so beautiful and because they can develop it. But

at the same time, the local governments don’t want the farmers to leave because they know that the current owners want open space, and development of the land will devalue all of the property. It’s a Catch-22, and it’s why innovative farm preservation programs have gotten attention in the local political system. The success of these programs is a true testament to local governments and political leaders — Democrat, Republican or Independent — who appreciate the importance of the farming culture. Because of development rights purchase programs funded by the Community Preservation Funds (CPF) of each town, farming families such

as the Halseys and the Whites have both a financial and personal incentive to keep farming on the East End. Without these programs it would be virtually impossible for the generational farming families out here to survive on farming alone. Land rich doesn’t mean money in the bank unless you sell the land, and as real estate values of farmland have reached the millions, acreby-acre, plot-by-plot, farmland was getting sold. Seven years ago the Town of Southampton developed a different farmland preservation program to keep farmers here and allow their land to remain as farms. The program is called Ag (continued on the next page)

Tax

(continued from previous page)

PDDs (agricultural planned development district), and it gives farmers the ability to sell development rights credits to the Town if their farmland gets put into an agricultural planned development district, creating a re-zoning freeze on the land for ten years. Should the farmers choose to sell the development rights, the land will forever remain a farm, the farming family gets to continue to own and work the land, but will be unable to sell it to anyone interested in building a mansion on the corn field. The program was a tremendous credit to the genius behind creating the CPF real estate tax. Without the CPF, many of our farmers would have cashed out and the results would’ve been horrible. The land occupied by the Milk Pail in Water Mill is owned by the Halsey family and

might have ended up as a private McMansion surrounded by a huge fence camouflaged by giant trees. Most interesting in the news recently is the increase in the number of farmers who have been taking advantage of these development rights purchases. Four farmers in less than a month have begun the legal process of selling their development rights to the Town of Southampton, which by law, thanks to the program, has to make an offer through use of the CPF. Why the increase in such a short period of time? There is some speculation that it has to do with the peaking real estate market — the head of the farming family is simply selling his rights at the time that he feels is optimum. But in addition to the financial opportunity,

this way of life is priceless to the farmers. Selling out the land has always been a last resort, and when a farmer has wanted to sell in the past, it was not because he was headed for retirement in Hawaii but because he simply needed the money. What’s remarkable about the recent applications to execute Ag PDDs contracts is that there is a reality in the cost of managing all of this — and it has to be paid with potato money. Farmers are having tremendous difficulty affording the high cost of estate planning, including legal fees, that have plagued nearly every family trying to keep its land and way of life. The paperwork between lawyers and the Town is endless, and when you throw an inheritance lawyer in the mix it can seem overwhelming. But to the farmers, town officials, preservation enthusiasts and the common (or not so common) homeowner in the Hamptons, it’s all worth the effort. With a fear looming that we could soon end up looking at even more and more gates, fences and rows of trees, we all realize the importance and the value behind programs such as Ag PDDs that preserve a way of life, and a invaluable landscape.

looking to turn a quick profit. The only negative point raised is that there will be no drive-thru teller, but Becker assured us that Georgica Bank customers would be spoiled (in fact, “Be Spoiled” is their motto). So if for some reason you can’t walk into the bank to make a deposit, he will come outside to take your deposit slip. Additional information we learned included: Georgica Bank is set to open its doors in the fourth quarter of ’08 with locations in Bridgehampton and East Hampton. The management team is used to producing above average numbers. There will be no ATM fees. The investment opportunity is a minimum of 2,500 shares for $25,000 and maximum of 50,000 shares for $500,000 (unless you give them a good reason to take more of your money). When the bank is referred to as “de novo,” it means it has been operating for five years or less. When the presentation ended, we mingled with the crowd, ate pastries and drank Pellegrino. Everyone seemed enthusiastic about the idea of investing in a local start-up with such a strong backbone of experienced managers and organizers. With investments, they say stick with what you know — but diversification makes a portfolio stronger. After much review, Victoria and I made our decisions — one of us chose to invest, the other didn’t. 1046529

Pow! Bam! The East End Ladies of LacerationJoin the LI Roller Derby League By Tiffany Razzano With the popularity of A&E’s 2006 show “Rollergirls,” women’s roller derby has enjoyed a renaissance in the United States over the past few years. Living in the shadows of New York City, which boasts the well-known Gotham Girls, Long Island got its own league three years ago in the form of the Roller Rebels, which brought derby back to the Long Island for the first time since the 1970s. But is the East End ready to take part in Long Island’s roller derby mania? Sure, one of the three teams that make up the Roller Rebels is called the East End Ladies

of Laceration, but none of the girls are from anywhere further east than Holbrook. And the league has never held a bout or practice outside Nassau County. “Long Island is like a state in itself,” said Carrie Goldstein, who goes by the moniker “Kosher Kaos” whenever she dons her skates. “It’s so big. We’d love to get girls from out [east] in our league. But it’s hard getting people from that far out.” Skater Karyn “Regine Bull” Konzet said the Roller Rebels are at a disadvantage not being based around a city like other leagues. “We’re an island that’s about 120 miles long,” she said. “It’s hard to find a place that’s good for

everyone. Even if you meet in the middle, it’s hard for some people to get there. We like to have solidarity, all of us coming from Long Island, but it’s hard to find a mid-point.” It’s also difficult to find a venue that will permit roller derby, said the league’s founder, Lauren Madonia, better known as “Captain Morgan.” But, if you invite them, the Roller Rebels are more than willing to go anywhere for an exhibition match. The Roller Rebels, a member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, had to overcome many obstacles to get where they are today. Founded in August 2005, at first they were (continued on the next page)

COPING WITH A CLAMPDOWN ON FOREIGN WORKERS By Debbie Tuma For years, restaurants, hotels and motels, landscapers and gardening companies on the East End have depended on seasonal foreign employees to make up their workforce during the busy summer months. But this year, the H2B Visa Workers Program that supplies them with certain numbers of legal foreign service help will provide only a small number, as the quotas have dropped. As a result, many businesses will be forced to open a little later, and maybe close a little sooner. And many of them have already searched out replacement workers from other

programs. “We’re all having to cope with the decreased numbers of H2B Visa workers, so at Gurney’s we have brought in lots of European students through a student Visa program,” said Paul Monte, General Manager of Gurney’s Inn Resort & Spa in Montauk. “We‘re bringing in students this year from Czechoslovakia, Germany, Argentina and the Philippines. We are also trying to get students from Niagara University and from schools in Florida.” Roberta Gosman, who has traditionally hired students from Ireland to work at Gosman’s Restaurant, recruited staff members

from Czechoslovakia and other European countries. Donald Torr, owner of The Crow’s Nest Restaurant in Montauk, said he is still scrambling to find service help for this upcoming season. “A handful of our H2B workers were not able to return, and we’re still looking to find dishwashers, maids and wait staff,” he said. “It just gets harder as time goes on, and it also drives up the prices.” Jim Grimes, owner of the landscaping company Fort Pond Native Plants, said, “It’s a bit of a dilemma, trying to fill in the gaps created (continued on page 33)

just a small group of girls in knee socks skating around tennis courts. None of them knew much about roller derby. At the very first meeting, Madonia even asked, “Where’s the ball?” Eventually they learned the rules, honing their skills along the way. They adopted a more professional, yet still very independent and DIY approach to the sport, registering the league as a business, and forming a board of directors and several committees. “Because we set standards, our level of play and professionalism increased,” said Madonia. “We look at our organization as a community where all our members need to contribute in order for our community to succeed.” Each girl is expected to volunteer her time on one of the various committees. They also practice two to three nights a week. Despite what people might think, roller derby truly requires athleticism and commitment. Those who don’t know any better make comparisons to the likes of the World Wrestling Federation. With entertaining names, such as Carnage Electra and Roxie Heartless, the violence and the pain, which, by the way, are very real, and the sheer pageantry and bravado of a

The East End Ladies of Laceration

bout, it’s easy to see why comparisons are made. The Roller Rebels, however, have much more heart, soul and integrity. Their bouts are unscripted. And the precious time and money they commit, along with the potential for bodily harm, are all for the sake of their love for roller derby. “People think it’s all staged,” said Goldstein. “When I tell people about it, a million times I hear it compared to wrestling.” Before a girl can participate in a bout, they are required to pass skills, speed and agility tests.

There are other misconceptions about the sport. When thinking of women’s roller derby, people often conjure an image of a girl with piercings, tattoos and multi-colored hair. Some girls may fit this profile, but not all of them do. “There’s a lot more moms,” she said. “They were bored of the same old things. They just wanted to get out and try something different and fun.” Goldstein, who works at JP Morgan in Manhattan, is just one of the many girls in the league who defy the stereotype. “Walking down Park Avenue, no one can tell by looking at me that I’m in the roller derby,” she said. “We try to get more than just alternative people,” said Konzet. “A lot of the girls have tattoos and are into bands. But I’m not. It’s becoming more of a sport for everyone.” In fact, Roller Rebel bouts are incredibly family-oriented events. At any given bout you’ll find a wide mix of people. Though their season begins in September, they have a series of inter-league bouts beginning April 5 against the Dominion Derby Girls from Norfolk, VA at Skate Safe in Old Bethpage.

Green If this Blueberry Drink is Blue, but ISay it’s Green, then What is it Really? By Debbie Tuma When I first heard about a party called “Green Drinks,” I thought it would be a crowd of health-conscious people drinking some kind of algae or freeze-dried spinach concoctions. When I entered 75 Main Restaurant in Southampton, I saw about 70 people around the bar drinking normal cocktails — but they wore name tags, and talked about green building, hybrid cars, recycling, non-toxic cleaners and energy-saving light bulbs. This was the third monthly “Hamptons Green Drinks,” a social networking event that I attended on March 6. It was preceded by two similar events held at Town Line Barbecue in

Sagaponack in December and January. Chuck Schwartz, owner of LI Green, a non-profit Southampton company that aims to reduce energy usage in households, started this East End chapter of Green Drinks Long Island with Catherine Bedard, an “eco-broker” of Southampton. “I heard about this group that meets in the Huntington area, which is an offshoot of Green Drinks International and has 348 chapters all over the world, and we decided to bring this phenomenon to the East End,” said Schwartz, who owns a hybrid car, and claims he can reduce energy use in any house by 30% for a modest investment. “But since we started, we’ve

attracted people from all over the Island.” A green designer in London founded Green Drinks International in 1989 after he attended a gathering at a local pub. He came up with the idea that people with similar interests in saving the environment should meet at the same time, every month, and network to make friends, find employment, do business deals and develop new ideas. This concept spread to other cities, and now there are Green Drinks chapters throughout Europe, from Switzerland to Scotland, and from Botswana to Brazil. Catherine Bedard of Century 21 Agawam Albertson in Southampton was recently certi(continued on the next page)

HAMPTON TRADITION XXXI — CORWINS JEWELERS By T.J. Clemente In 1876, W.G. Corwin set up his jewelers shop in Orient out on the North Fork. When the Long Island Rail Road reached Southampton in 1878, he decided to relocate and stake his claim on Main Street in Southampton — the result being 129 years of continuous jeweler service by the same family. Present owner, Master Jeweler Timothy Corwin, told a compelling story of a customer who came in with a ring set by his great-grandfather, W.G. Corwin, in the 1890s and needed to be reset. Timothy admired his great-grandfather’s work as he reset the diamond in the ring. “In fact, it was a piece

from the 1700s,” said Timothy. “It was a special moment for me.” Corwins Jewelers is the oldest continuous family owned jeweler in New York State. W.G.’s original jeweler’s shop was located three doors down from the present location at 61 Main Street. In 1900, there was a fire and the store was repaired, but after a more massive fire in the 1920s the present building was acquired. It has been the home of the business and five generations of Corwins. In 1928, W.G.’s sons, George and Thomas, took over. After World War II, Thomas came home to Southampton to take over the family business. However, when he

was recalled to fight yet again in Korea it was Timothy’s mother, Elizabeth Corwin, who ran things until he came back to Southampton for good in 1954. Thomas ran the enterprise until 1981 when Timothy, who had just finished becoming a Master Jeweler in Texas, returned home to take the reins of Corwins Jewelers and move it into a third century. A 1971 graduate of Southampton High School, Timothy later earned a degree in biology from SUNY Binghamton and then went to jewelry school in Texas. He and his wife, Toni Lea Corwin, have three children — Karianne, (continued on page 30)

fied as an “eco-broker” specializing in green building and alternative energy sources. She said since most homes contribute a huge amount to the depletion of natural resources of our planet, she thought she could have a big impact on the choices her customers make for heating, cleaning and furnishing their homes. For example, Bedard, who also drives a hybrid car, said she helped a homeowner purchase a solar pool heater instead of a gas one, which saved the homeowner money and helped the environment. “I’ve helped people buy floors of bamboo, which is renewable, and also buy non-toxic fabrics and paint,” she said. “I help with water treatment systems and in changing light bulbs to CSL energy efficient lights. There’s an alternative to everything that you buy.” Russell Blue, an architect in Southampton who also attended the party, said he has long been into “green architecture,” using solar and wind energy designs to reduce the impact on the environment. Eva Growney, another “green” architect of Amagansett, is creating the Duck Project in Flanders, a model for a sustainable community. Growney said that most of her projects are focused on this important movement. “I recently attended an AIA Convention on green architecture in Texas, where Al Gore was the keynote speaker on this subject, before a few thousand architects,” she said. “This shows how major this movement is in our country today.” Frank Dalene, President and CEO of Telemark, a Bridgehampton construction company, builds luxury homes. “We believe in incor-

porating the green energy and materials into our homes as much as possible, so I came here to meet other like-minded people in this field,” he said. Hugh McIvor, of Motorworks Clean Vehicles, Inc. in Amityville, came to promote his line of electric cars, which use no gas and have no emissions, on the East End. “I wanted to be among people of similar interests, who could see the benefits of our vehicles,” he said. “Our key mission is to reduce the dependency on foreign oil, and also reduce the emissions in our environment.” He said there has been a great demand of his 30 mph utility wagons at Queens College and Farmingdale

University campuses, and that he is looking to bring them out to Stony Brook Southampton campus as well. Later this year, his company will release a new electric sedan model that goes 80 to 120 miles on a single charge. Matt Doris, executive chef at Stony Brook Southampton, said his college has gone green in every aspect, including the food management. “Our mission is to work with local farmers and merchants, to use local products, and to grow as much of our produce as we can,” he said. “We are building a greenhouse and an herb garden for our dining facility. We are purchasing coffee from the Shinnecock Indian reservation, apples from the local fields, and non-toxic cleaners from local vendors.” Steve Cea of East Quogue, owner of Organically Green professional lawn and tree spraying of Nesconset, said he and his partner, Diana Aronica, are trying to provide a healthier alternative to harsh pesticides and chemicals. “This organic alternative is safer for children, pets and property,” he said. “We treat lawns all over the East End.” Matt O’Grady and Tom Pellicane, publishers of Canvas, a green lifestyle magazine in Huntington, founded the Long Island Green Drinks chapter along with David Sibek, also of Huntington, about a year ago. There are also Green Drinks chapters in Manhattan and Brooklyn. The next Hamptons Green Drinks event will take place at 75 Main Restaurant on April 8 from 6-9 p.m. For more information, visit greendrinks.org.

Who’s Here By Janine Cheviot “If someone who knows East Hampton asks me where my house is, I’ll say, ‘Do you know where Further Lane is?’ It’s fun to watch their eyes grow wide with astonishment and a newfound respect. ‘Uh, yes,’ they respond. Then I’ll say, ‘It’s much further from there.’” Set up and punch sequences like this frequently punctuated the interview with Angela LaGreca. The funny woman has a laundry list of impressive titles — producer, comedian, singer and writer, to name a few — and had me in stitches as we discussed her life. LaGreca studied opera at Smith College, but majored in government. “It made absolutely no sense. At the time I didn’t think being a performer was worthy of my parents’ money,” she said. “I used to audition for things, but I didn’t really want to do Annie Get Your Gun in Germany. I love performing, but I love words and writing even more.” LaGreca’s interests come together in her comedy act, a combination of standup, songs and sometimes impressions, and she is currently working on a theatrical one-woman show. “My mom used to say, ‘Honor what you do. You can make people laugh when they’re having a bad day,’” said LaGreca. “You can’t make sense of 99% of things in life. The only way to get through it is with laughter.” The six-time MAC (Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs) award winner has performed everywhere in New York City from Caroline’s Comedy Club to Carnegie Hall, and has played to sold-out crowds in top venues around the country. “I either like a big venue that envelops the performer, or an intimate cabaretlike setting — 60 people right on top of me in my face,” she said. For many years, LaGreca was a regular contributor to Star Magazine’s “Worst of the Week” page, which displays celebrity fashion disasters. “I received a lot of response from that, but it was certainly not based on my knowledge of fashion,” she said. “People in my building used to ask if I was the super, so I was definitely not qualified.” LaGreca also has recorded numerous voiceovers and promos for ABC, HBO and Nickelodeon. “I don’t really have a classic ‘I’ve had five martinis’ voice. But I have a range,” she explained. LaGreca’s career in television began on The View, where she worked for nine years, first as the audience warm-up personality and then as a

Angela LaGreca Comedian writer and producer for the show’s popular “Hot Topics” segments with moderator Meredith Vieira. “I invented dancing on daytime TV way before Ellen. People should know that,” LaGreca joked. When Vieira left The View to join Matt Lauer

pitching stories that catch my attention, or my heart, and having the resources to produce a segment that means something.” One such segment is a piece she produced on Sag Harbor resident Joann Ferrara’s book Ballerina Dreams, which chronicles the story of five young girls with disabilities who dreamed of becoming ballerinas and dancing on stage — and their dreams come true. “That story meant more to me than most. One ballerina wanted Laura Bush to attend the recital. So I called Washington and asked, ‘So how busy is Laura Bush?’ And she came. That kind of stuff is so meaningful,” said LaGreca. In addition to Ballerina Dreams, there were two other segments that touched LaGreca’s heart. One, a piece she produced for the Clown Care Program, had Vieira in a clown costume, cheering up sick children in a hospital (the piece currently runs on a continuous loop at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital). Another was a series called “I Want a Baby” that focused on infertility, miscarriage and adoption. As a result of the piece, Vieira will be honored by RESOLVE, the national infertility organization, for putting a spotlight on the challenges of infertility and miscarriage, and for portraying adoption as a viable option. LaGreca has also produced many live entertainment segments with actors, comedians and musical acts including Jerry Seinfeld, Michelle Pfeiffer, Matthew Broderick, Renée Zellweger, Paula Abdul and Barry Manilow. She produced two memorable pieces with Vieira and Will Ferrell — one segment last year when Vieira took a spill on the ice rink at Rockefeller Center while Ferrell was promoting the film Blades of Glory, and the second recently when Vieira and New York Knicks guard Nate Robinson played Ferrell and Woody Harrelson in a twoon-two basketball game to promote the actors’ film Semi-Pro. As for the co-anchors on Today, LaGreca is grateful to work with Lauer and Vieira, who she says have a great sense of humor and get along really well. “Meredith really is THAT nice,” she said. “And I can’t believe Matt agreed to be roasted at Friars Club. The median age there is deceased, but they’re brutal.” Last summer LaGreca performed at Bay Street Theatre in the comedy act “Three Gals Undone,” along with friends Joy Behar and Julie Halston. “Performing comedy in the Hamptons is a challenge. It’s basically like playing at a Botox convention. You know when people want to laugh, but it just is not physically possi-

Now as a producer on Today, LaGreca considers her job varied and interesting. “I love my job because it’s so diverse. I have a lot of interests and I don’t feel locked into any one type of segment,” she said. “I really enjoy

who is just finishing up at Southampton High School, Tamara Tillman, who recently gave birth to Cory Thomas Tillman, and Travis, who is currently a chef in Charleston, South Carolina, but has worked at the jewelry store in the past. With a family business with this much history, anecdotes abound. Timothy tells of a Southampton High School ring found in 2004 in some bushes in the Village. The ring, from the class of 1934, was brought to Corwins Jewelers to see if he could find the owner. Tim found initials and the owner was successfully tracked. And there was the woman who lost her two carat diamond that somehow became dislodged from its setting. Timothy duplicated the ring and the woman was pleased. However, two

years later she walked in with the lost diamond in her hand. She explained to him that when she was getting into her car the day before she saw something shining. The lost diamond was imbedded in the trim of car. Timothy designed something special for the woman and the diamond. Jane Boyd, a trusted aide at Corwins Jewelers, recalled some of the many well-known faces that have stopped in — the flamboyant Truman Capote stopped by during her first Photo by T.J. Clemente

Other celebrity clients included Johnny Carson, Perry Como, Chris Reeves, Peter Jennings, Sly Stallone, Tina Louise, and Maria Shriver and her husband Arnold Schwarzenegger. Boyd expressed sadness over recently losing valued customer, the late Roy Scheider. Timothy Corwin stressed that Corwins Jewelers can do “anything.” He recommends that all diamond jewelry be checked twice a year. At Corwins the diamonds are checked and cleaned at no charge. Corwins also does watch repair, stone settings, diamond settings, antique restoration, pearl and bead stringing and appraisals. The fluctuation in the price of precious metals has kept the staff at Corwins on their toes. However, their traditional top-level service is a factor not seen in the price. Timothy said that the price of rhodium used in the plating when setting a diamond now sells for $9,000 an ounce. He claims that many jewelers are now using platinum because even though it’s costly it’s still less expensive than rhodium. When entering Corwins Jewelers, in addition to the wonderful jewelry and watches, two other things stand out. The beautiful stained glass behind the counter done by Alexis Mayer in 1998, and the wonderful pet dog, a border collie named Kipper, who if you’re lucky will try to get you to play Frisbee with him.

ble,” she joked. “Let’s face it, they’ve taken the ‘sag’ out of Sag Harbor.” Behar encouraged LaGreca to buy a house in the Hamptons a few years ago, and she’s been fantasizing about living here year-round ever since. “I love to garden, entertain, cook — stuff I would never admit to ten years ago. I basically cry when I have to leave on Sunday.” But what makes LaGreca so likeable is how “un-Hamptons” she is. She “gets” what the East End is truly about. “I have a moment every time I drive on Old Stone Highway on the way to the Amagansett Farmer’s Market. It’s so beautiful,” she said. LaGreca would rather have dinner with friends, take a bike ride or go crabbing in Georgica Pond than wait on line for an hour at a swanky restaurant, as she appreciates the Hamptons for its natural beauty and serenity, rather than for its fancy parties and expensive shopping. “People ask me how I got into the business, but they don’t realize how much hard work it takes. Everything is hard work and very little glory. But a good cup of coffee, outdoor showers, twilight times at the beach, the sunset over Three Mile Harbor — that’s it.”

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner Bonding Through American Idol I’m pretty much completely obsessed with this season of “American Idol.” It’s relatively pathetic and I think that I need to get out more, but I’m sorry, I friggin’ love that kid David Archuleta. I’m so into this show that I have a little ritual when I watch it that involves about three bottles of Guinness and intense telephone conversations when the contestants sing. “Oh my God dude, did you hear Brooke screw up in the beginning? What was she thinking?! For crying out loud this is AMERICAN IDOL!” I love hating Ryan Seacrest for being so annoying. Man, I hate him. I love Paula Abdul for always telling the contestants they did a good job and that she loves them, even when they’re terrible, and I love always agreeing with Simon Cowell after each performance. It just does it for me.

knows her audience, so she will go far.” “Touché.” For about 20 minutes we went on and on about “American Idol,” analyzing every detail. We talked about the reasons why the public enjoys the show. We got deep, talking about the psychological reasons why people enjoy watching other people sing for votes. We are all a bunch of intellectuals over here in the editorial department. I never once touched on the subject of text voting. Letting people know that you actually go so far as to text a vote to Fox for your favorite contestant is just too personal. The point of all of this is that I think televi-

sion is a good thing when it helps people bond, because bonding is a good thing. In fact, corporations all over the world that spend millions of dollars a year sending out employees on trips to play paintball and learn about teamwork could probably save a lot of money if they just assembled everybody and brought up “American Idol” as a topic. Bonding over something is important. I know some people who would not have a relationship with their fathers if it weren’t for conversations on baseball. My guess is that during the Montauk St. Patty’s Day parade a fair amount of bonding occurred over a Guinness or two.

The writer’s favorite “American Idol” contestant, David Archuleta

David Archuleta is the nicest, sweetest kid that I have ever seen on television. Not only can he sing, he is also gracious and humble. I don’t want to sound weird, but I hope to one day have a son like him. He better win. I’m gonna be mad if he doesn’t. One of the most amazing things about this show is how much it can open people up emotionally. I walked into work the other day and brought up the show because I was so pumped up about it. “Did you see ‘American Idol’ last night?” I asked my co-workers. As the question sank in, I watched everybody’s brains began to decide whether or not they were going to admit that they watch the show. After all, this was the Dan’s Papers editorial department. None of these people watch television — they all go home and read the New Yorker and The New York Times. But then, from the far corner of the newsroom, an editor brought the conversation to the next level. “OH MY GOD! I saw it last night. The country girl is so annoying!” Of course, this deserved the appropriate rebuttal. “Yeah, but she is pretty and she

Northwest last year. We hope we don’t see them again. But last year we also began to see brown recluse spiders in those woods. There have been only a few sightings. But they seem to be on the upswing. Both are poisonous, with the black widow in damp places outside and the reclusive inside, perhaps in basements. Years ago we had fearful carpenter ant epidemics, but that ended around 1950. If they do come back, sprinkle Borax on your house foundation. The kind of tick that was most prevalent out here last year, and will surely be in more abundance this year, is the Lone Star Tick identifiable by its white spots. It’s about as prevalent now as a deer tick and causes the usual diseases such as Lyme, Tick Fever and Babiosis. If you think you have been bitten by a tick, get to a doctor right away for a course of antibiotics. Meanwhile, put drops of Frontline on the backs of your dogs. Who can forget the pride of mountain lions that moved into the Pine Barrens north of Westhampton in the late 1980s and began foraging in the woods there? Many were trapped by hunters, but it wasn’t until the great Sunrise fires of 1995 that they seemed to either have burnt up or run away. 2006 was a bad year for shark sightings in the Hamptons, but 2007 was better. There’s no way to predict what will happen this year. There are still those among us who remem-

ber the ladybird beetles that attacked in massive amounts at swimming holes in Hampton Bays in 1951, biting swimmers and causing them to get strange welts. The Japanese beetle infestations a few years ago have subsided, but there’s a new danger of turpentine beetles, which are eating up all our Japanese black pine trees. Also the nematode, a special beetle that burrows itself into our pota-

to crop, seems to be on the upswing this year. Incidences of head lice have also subsided in the last few years, but there has been an increase in the number of Chiggers, which seem to have arrived here in winged migrations from the Midwest and Canada during the winter of 2006-7. There’s also been a suspicion of a bedbug infestation, but nobody’s been able to document it. Seems like it’s going to be a bad year for mold. Giant carpenter bees, almost the size of your fist, will appear in June and July, hovering near plants and flowers or even you. They are curious creatures. And they don’t bite. But they can be frightening. In the plant world, the battle to the death by various species continues as a big problem. You know that phragmites, a native bamboo-like plant from Eastern Europe, has taken over from much of our native versions along the edges of our ponds. Also moving in this year is mugwort, a really ugly looking plant that has slowly been spreading out from Nassau County and Queens since the 1970s. It was seen in Montauk last year. Garlic Mustard has become a big problem. It secretes a goo that kills native plants. And there has been a big increase in Japanese Knot Weed and Russian Olive. Poison Ivy was a bad (continued on page 35)

by these workers who are not returning.” He explained that many landscapers needed these workers early in the spring and were unable to get them. “We’ve had workers from the original H2B Visa Program who by now have gotten green cards, and this year we only had about eight slots to fill,” he said. “Is it killing us? No. But it’s making our lives more difficult.” Laraine Creegan, Executive Director of the Montauk Chamber of Commerce, has been meeting with local business owners, and suggesting they seek help from U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Many local businesses are caught up in a Congressional standoff over an immigration overhaul, which could cost companies billions in lost business. For about the last 20 years, the H2B Visa Workers Program has allowed people from other countries to come to the U.S. to work for up to eight months for specified employers, and then return to their country of origin. Since its inception, this program has authorized 66,000 workers to enter the U.S. annually. In 2005-2006, an exemption was given for returning workers that allowed them to be exempted from the 66,000, allowing more workers in the program. This exemption was further granted in 2006, allowing about 75,000 more returning workers so the total was 150,000. But that expired in 2007. “At this point, the original 66,000 cap is all that’s being allowed for 2008, and that cap was

reached on January 2,” said Monte, who last year employed 90 legal foreign workers out of a seasonal staff of 325 at Gurney’s. Adam Miller, an attorney in Bridgehampton, said because so many of his real estate development, landscaping and other clients had these similar immigration problems, he hired an attorney who specializes in these issues. Millicent Clarke, who has practiced immigration law for 25 years, and who served with the former Immigration Naturalization Service (INS), now called the Department of Homeland Security ICE, joined his firm in December. She practices in Valley Stream and also works out of Adam Miller Group in Bridgehampton to help clients here. “Over the years there has always been a

quota of 66,000 for the entire country, but they’d say returning workers don’t have to be counted in the quota. Now, all of a sudden these people are being counted in the quota, so there are less Visas available,” explained Clarke. “I thought by now they would have done something about it, because we’re in a recession, so why make it worse than it is? It’s also an attack on the economy, which businesses were trying to run in an efficient way with legal immigration.” Clarke advised people to put pressure on the State department and on senators and congressmen. “Many people think there is nothing they can do, but I tell them that writing letters and making phone calls will help,” she said. Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman has been trying to bring back these summer workers to the East End. But he said so far this year the quota has been used up by the winter ski resorts. In previous years, the 66,000 cap was split between the summer and winter resorts, and the returning workers came in over and above this number. But this year, with no exemption for returning workers, the 66,000 allowable workers were granted on a first come, first served basis, and the ski resorts grabbed them first. “We were hoping that Congress and the Senate would act quickly to pass this exemption so that this void of returning workers could be filled,” said Schneiderman. “Now we don’t know if it will happen.”

house?” I asked. “Oh sure.” “Can I tell Jigger?” “Oh no. It has to go to the impound lot first. So you’d have to pay to have it towed twice,” he said cheerfully. “Once to the impound, and then to the house.” “How long have you been doing this?” I asked. “Being a police officer?” “No. Today.” “Just 20 minutes. We’ve already got two cars. Yours and another one, right there.” “I wrote about these new roof computer devices. You got them three weeks ago. I said they would be a disaster for this Village. No more just giving you a warning, take the car home and take care of it.” “That’s right.” “At the rate you’re going, you’ll have the traffic problem in downtown East Hampton solved in no time.” I thought that tone was about right. My hands were cold. I was wearing a thin jacket. But at that moment, friends we know, Fred and Robin Seigel, drove out of the Citarella parking lot, pulled up to see what was happening and then offered to drive us home. “If you’ll take us, you’ve got to come in for a glass of wine,” I said. “I’ve got the new Rose from Wölffer Estate.” “Our daughter just came back from China,” Robin said. “So she’s home and we want to be with her.” “Just for a few minutes,” Fred said. As Fred pulled out into traffic, he almost hit a car swerving over from another lane. Traffic here in the center of downtown was just one lane now because of what was going on. At the house we had wine, crackers and cheese and watched the sunset overlooking Three Mile Harbor. Fred said this had been a cured lapse. He couldn’t understand why, if it was not a current lapse, they could do what they did. I said I had no notification of any lapse. Nothing. I had no idea there had even been a lapse. “If it’s two days, it will be $16. If it’s two hun-

dred days it will be $1600,” I said. “I guess I will find out when I call.” We also talked about the time, three years ago, when the Village contracted with a company to put metal boots on the tires of cars that overstayed their time in Village parking lots. An attendant would wait nearby, sitting in a car with the key. He’d see a person hauling shopping bags and maybe a kid in a stroller back to his booted car and say he’d use the key to unlock it but not until the fine of $375 in cash was paid. People would get very angry. Andrew Baker, who owns the Harbor Music Store in Sag Harbor, broke his big toe trying to kick the metal boot off his wheel in front of this attendant. George Plimpton, the late author, DID kick and break the boot with one solid shot. It broke into two pieces, and then fell to the ground with a clang, stopping both the attendant and George to gape at them in wonder. Just keep the car, George told the attendant. And he walked off. It was, he later told me, a very old car not worth $375. We used phrases like radar sting, legalized bullying and highway robbery as we talked about all of this. “This is a terrible thing for this town,” I said. “I’m going to call the Mayor.” And I did. I called him at his home right then and there. It was 6:30 p.m., the dinner hour, on a Saturday. He answered the phone. And after my long explanation he said he would look into

this and get back to me by phone on Monday. I told him I’d save space in the paper for whatever it was he wanted to say at that time. Besides that, I thought this was simply an awful way to treat people in East Hampton. “You should junk these computer radar devices,” I told him. “Throw them in the trash. They are Orwellian devices that we should not be allowed to possess.” He said they have brought a lot of money to the village in a very short amount of time, catching scofflaws and people who had arrest warrants against them. “But I do understand,” he continued. “And I really appreciate that you called.” And so, a small dinner at home. And off to bed, but not before checking Moo’s collar. Rabies good. Dog license good. Good dog.

AS WE GO TO PRESS It’s Tuesday afternoon and the Tahoe is still at the impound yard on Accabonac Highway in East Hampton. I want to say that I owe an apology to the police officers because from their perspective what they saw would correctly lead them to impound the Tahoe. How it was done and how it was explained, however, is another matter. The police are busy people. This was very complicated. And up to this minute, we are not able to determine how this vehicle had its registration suspended in 2006. My insurance company told me that Albany makes mistakes all the time. And they are usually fixed before it comes to this. It’s still not clear how I never received any notice of suspension. I read my mail. I never got anything. In any case, a lapse of insurance subsequently repaired, as perceived by Albany, triggered the suspension of the registration. It will cost me $150 in cash to get it out of impound when the time comes. It will cost $15 a day for storage while it’s there and it will cost $8 a day for the time that either the insurance was lapsed or the time that the registration was suspended until it gets reinstated, which would be a very, very large sum, if it was about registration. So lucky me, I either get driven around or I borrow a delivery van from the office. What a wonderful time! Incidentally, I have been such a good driver that only a license plate gun in the hands of the East Hampton Police Department one and a half years later has cleared the community of such scourges as my Tahoe. That part of my complaint still stands. I think there are certain things that should be not known about very easily. We don’t have a federal human being computer monitoring system. As this case unfolds it could very well be that we shouldn’t have a license plate reader instant seizure computer system. At least until we are prepared to allow some sort of purgatory where things rest until certain things get sorted out. •

problem last year and it looks like a repeat for this year. It’s a virtual vegetable genocide out there. If you listen carefully, you’ll hear them mewling. Batura, which is a hallucinogenic plant that also goes by the name of Ginseng Weed, has been seen on the sides of the road along Route 114 between East Hampton and Sag Harbor. Look for a big plant with a white flower. And Salvia divinorum, a horrible creature, has been moving up from the southwest having skipped over the border from Mexico a few years ago, and is now heading for the East Coast, with at least one plant discovered here on Long Island. Last week, Suffolk County made it a crime to

When I was single and went on a date and suggested to the date that maybe we should go up to my place and have a cup of coffee, it was not what I had in mind. I think that’s it. No wait. I have a four-wheel drive Tahoe I like to drive on the beach in the wintertime. One beach driving sticker I get is for the New York State beach in Napeague that, to get it, you have to have in your car fishing rods, bait buckets, hooks and line. I have those things and so I go out on the beach. But I don’t fish. I write on my laptop. If a police officer were to come along, however, I would get everything out and start fishing. One more thing. I’m a male prostitute working for a very prestigious prostitution ring based in Washington, D.C., and that’s why sometimes I’m out of town. Occasionally I get a call for a $4,000 date where I do a few things, or a $5,000 date where I do a few more things or the same things but better, and the women involved are high level Senatresses, Congresswomen and Governesses. For example, Jodi Rell is the Governess of Connecticut. I’m not saying it was she. And I’m not saying it was Senator Hillary Clinton. Those are just examples of people who are women and who have high public office. So, I’m prepared to name names, but only if someone who would like to back me in a new aftershave line I have created in a lab in my basement. Dan’s Aftershave. I also have plans for Dan’s Secret, which is a men’s clothing store. And I need an agent. I have a song on YouTube. And some really sexy photos of me almost nude. Also, I do not have a permit from the Town of East Hampton for the lab in my basement, but as I’ve written this I have gone down there and filed for the variance, so I’ve made things right. •

either possess, eat or smoke Salvia dinorum (also known as Diviner’s Sage) because of its hallucinogenic powers. It grows to be three feet high, has large green leaves, hollow square stems and an occasional white and purple flower. Be on the lookout for it. In January 2006, a 17-year-old Delaware student committed suicide because of it. Deer have maintained a continuing presence here, in spite of the annual hunt during the late autumn. Drive slowly, and, especially at night, occasionally honk your horn, because they do tend to trot out into the road and try to climb into your backseat. Fortunately, they usually fail. The National Weather Service in Boulder, Colorado is predicting a more than active hur-

ricane season for the East Coast this year, with the possibility of seven major storms. There was a tornado reported in Bridgehampton in 1994. Flooding shut down many of the roads in the Hamptons in August of 1986. And with the polar ice cap melting, perhaps one of those giant white killer polar bears will get swept down to the East End of Long Island. He will be pissed. Maybe the best thing, especially for city people who have homes here, is to just stay indoors all summer with the doors locked. There’s plenty of takeout, there’s air conditioning if you can afford it, and some restaurants offer home delivery. •

The Sheltered Islander Sheltered Islander #491 Waking Up Sat. Mar. 29, 11:18 AM ET Muncie, Ind. — William M. Bowen woke up after a night of drinking with friends and realized he was inside a commercial trash collection truck full of waste. The driver had just emptied a commercial trash bin into his truck and was about to activate its compactor when he heard Bowen screaming. “He looked up and this gentleman was standing out the top of our truck,� said Larry Green, market safety supervisor for Rumpke Waste Disposal Company. Green said the only thing Bowen said to the driver was that he was cold. * * * It’s clearly Spring. I see little dirt piles everywhere indicating that the worms are turning. I see ants in the house. I hear birds chirping in the morning. In a short time the Island will be green. I’ve also noticed that summer people are starting to trickle in already. As a public service to our summer residents who come here to relax and enjoy themselves, I thought I might review a few indicators that you have overdone the whole “What the Hell, I’m on Vacation� theme.

Another Drink, Please By Karma Hope Displaying a love for his dog, diving and alcohol consumption, David Stoll leaves little to the imagination regarding his hatred of all else. He quite adamantly describes his dislike of children, most women (lesbians in particular), and bad drivers (again, mostly women). The good news — Stoll is indiscriminate in his distribution of criticism and well-aimed jabs, including himself. There is nothing sacred enough to avoid the sharp edge of his haughty opinions. The social, religious and cultural groups not included in his pessimistic reverie can only be accounted for by the assumption he does not personally know someone from those groups. The reader will laugh out loud, regardless of location, at the witty and irreverent observations. Stoll makes no secret of his distaste for children, describing them in terms most mothers would find offensive yet some fathers may agree with, but only in private and away from their wives. Even children he is related to don’t escape the disapproving stroke of his pen. One would wonder whether Stoll would like the human race to continue or just end with his own perfection and well-developed sense of self. The only time the reader is met with any sense of warmth from the author is when he

is describing his dog and diving. Pete is Stoll’s golden retriever. When describing the exact motions with which Pete removes the water from his fur after swimming, the reader is clearly transported to the world of tenderness and affection that manages to survive in the cold terrain of Stoll’s heart. He devotes a chapter to the activities of his dog, from urinary habits and sleeping patterns to the exact look in his eyes when he sees a ball pass before him. The other positive tone mentioned in this book is diving. Stoll speaks in almost hushed tones regarding his joy of diving, transporting the reader to his underwater world and taking them on a journey to see barracudas, sharks and the magnificence of a coral reef. Aiming most of his sarcasm at himself, Stoll explores his own floundering experiences as a

well-paid lawyer to unpaid real estate broker, and eventually on to happy writer. The reader gets an in-depth look at the difficulty he had selling his home in the Hamptons and how through poverty and near bankruptcy, he managed to keep his sense of humor firmly intact. His sense of humor, albeit often rude and impertinent, gives this book its charm and likeability. Although Stoll lashes out in all directions, the reader is quite aware that he doesn’t really have a mean bone in his body, or at least not as many as he professes to have. Stoll devotes an entire chapter to his discovery of his gayness and a detailed log of his sexual exploits. Avoiding outright crass descriptions, Stoll still manages to give the reader a little too much information regarding gay sex. Although it’s slightly interesting to know that a professed “bottom” is always a “bottom,” most readers do not really want to know this information. One has to wonder for which audience Stoll is aiming. It is apparent that Stoll has a near worshipful relationship with alcohol, vodka most notably. Adamantly claiming he is not an alcoholic, Stoll is unable to tell a single story that does not involve imbibing of some nature. He appears to be embalming himself while still alive and avoiding death appears to be his intended goal. He also strongly advocates smoking, a complete lack of physical exercise, and one night stands, as if these are the antideath apparatus that doctors have not yet discovered. On the back cover a warning is clearly issued — “Warning: this book is inappropriate for children, the author’s parents and the humorless.” This is well-positioned counsel and should be taken at full face value. The humor part being the most essential ingredient to enjoying this book. Well that and the ability not to take one’s self very seriously. Even his family may find a way to enjoy his anecdotes if they refuse to take Stoll seriously. This reviewer found it impossible to take the author seriously and was thus able to completely enjoy the profane and boorish journey Stoll creates with charm and occasional warmth. The author possesses a gifted way with words and leaves everyone scathed so as not to offend any one group individually. This is not meant to offend and I feel sure that Stoll himself will appreciate this observation — this is a perfect lavatory book. No bathroom should be without it.

THE BARREL...

A Sideways Look at Osprey’s Dominion Vineyards One of the terrific things about covering Long Island wine so closely in recent years is seeing how the region — and individual producers — are evolving and improving, both in how they run their tasting rooms and in the wines they craft. It’s also great, for me anyway, to find wines made locally that fall outside of the “Merlot and Chardonnay” fold. There are so many of each being

made on the East End that many of them end up tasting way too similar and not distinctive at all. Enter Osprey’s Dominion Vineyards and some of winemaker Adam Suprenant’s current releases. If you’ve seen the movie Sideways, you know that pinot noir is difficult to grow. And with a humid climate and less-than-predictable weather, Long Island doesn’t make it any easier. It’s far from the idea place to grow and ripen top-flight pinot. Several wineries do grow it, however, with varying

degrees of success. Some grow it, but harvest it early for use in traditionally made pinot noir — probably the safest course year after year. Still, a handful of wineries do make a leap of faith, making still wines from the heartbreak grape. As you might expect, these wines tend to be small production and expensive. Supply doesn’t really meet demand most of the time — and neither does quality. Of the varietal pinot noirs that are on the market, many disappoint with thin body, overtly simple flavor profiles, and — again — those prices aren’t always good. But every now and again, a local pinot noir stands up — jumps out really — and demands attention. Osprey’s Dominion Vineyards’ 2005 Pinot Noir ($35) is one such wine. Coming from the 2005 vintage, a hot dry one, the color is much darker than many local pinots, a rich ruby-cherry red. The nose, even in this wine’s relative youth, is expressive and nuanced with aromas of ripe red fruits like cherries and raspberries, earthy mushrooms, and exotic spice. The mediumlight bodied palate features more of that mushroomy-earthy flavor along with cherries and crushed fresh raspberries, cinnamon, cloves and faint cocoa powder spice, which complexity A minerally note towards the end of a medium-long finish is the perfect close to an impressive wine. Two more of Suprenant’s non-merlot and nonchardonnay releases stood out in blind tasting as well. The classy Osprey’s Dominion Vineyards’ 2006 Gewurztraminer ($18) is classic gewurzt with aromas of rose petals, lychee nut, and gingerspice. The palate fills the mouth with floral, spicy flavors and with just a little fresh apple character. Sometimes gewurzt can taste flabby or hefty on the palate — it’s naturally low in acid — but not this one. There’s just a little residual sugar here. Overall, it’s a nice effort with great balance balance. Osprey’s Dominion Vineyards’ 2006 Sauvignon Blanc is one of the North Forks best deals — a steal at $13. When not over-chilled, the nose shows nice lemon, melon, and grapefruit aromas with just the most subtle herbal notes and a salty-minerally note. The palate is fresh and clean with subtle flavors that won’t knock you over. Instead, the zesty citrus flavors with herbs and minerals entice and invite sip after sip. With terrific acid backbone and a crisp green apple finish, this really is one of the best values on the North Fork, and decidedly not one of those intensely grassy New Zealand sauvignons, thankfully. www.ospreysdominionvineyards.com

Dan’s North Fork

North Fork Mets Fans And Their Shea Stories Shea Stadium Will Say Goodbye To Some North Fork Fans That Have Been Going To Opening Day For 39 Years By Phyllis Lombardi Breaking up is hard to do. Whether from a first love, retirement from a job you cherished, leaving a neighborhood that’s been home for most of your life. The North Fork became my fork more than 25 years ago. I was joyous then, and am still, about living here. And yet on moving day I walked from room to room in the home I was leaving, saying goodbye to each room. The bedrooms where three cribs had held three children years before. The kitchen where I learned to cook. The dining room where we had our birthday parties. Even the back porch where we took off our muddy shoes. I’d painted all the rooms, many times. Made curtains for the windows. Matter of fact, I was cleaning the dining room windows on a November day in 1963 when the radio brought me news from Dallas. I picked up the phone to call my husband at work and my mother at her home. Yes, tough, this coming and going. Now something else is passing from the scene. Not as important as a job or precious as a home. But special nevertheless. There are many North Fork baseball fans bracing themselves for the end of this 2008season-demolition of Shea Stadium, the Flushing home of those sometimes mighty, sometimes maddening Metropolitans. The Mets. There’s a new stadium ($800 million) in the works, this is the time to reminisce. North Forkers have their Shea stories, stories reaching Hall of Fame proportions with the passage of time. (Yes, I know there’s gonna be a new Yankee Stadium, also in 2009. Maybe

we’ll talk about that later.) For now, meet two Mets fans – Mary Ann and Don Healy. They have a home in Whitestone, minutes from Shea, but spend lots of summer and winter time in a cozy home on the North Fork. Don, a U.S. Postal Service employee, attends games with coworkers as well as with Mary Ann. You know what’s admirable about these two fans? They admit right out their team had, in 2007, the biggest collapse in the history of major league baseball. They’re upset too, and think the Mets are really dumb to build a new stadium with no retractable roof. Nevertheless, they’re excited about new Met pitcher Johan Santana. You gotta believe! And listen to this. Two years ago Mary Ann and Don traveled to Port St. Lucie, Florida, for one of those Mets Amazin’ Getaways – a week at the Mets spring training site, games at Tradition Field and even breakfast with the champions. How special. Then there’s my Met-fan husband. He and I disagree on many things, but usually resolve our differences. However, he’s just plain nasty when it comes to baseball. What kind of a fan says he’s almost as happy when my Yankees lose as he is when his Mets win? Anyway, he’s seen the glory days of Tom Terrific Seaver and the gory days of 120 losses in one season,

1962 – a record that still stands. He wants me to remind you of Marvelous Marv Thornberry, Met first baseman often looked upon as a comic figure by fans and press alike. And the manager that year, Mr. Casey “Can’t anyone around here play this game?” Stengel. Bill Andreas lives in Aquebogue and is the manager of a grocery store in Cutchogue, and knows Shea Stadium like the back of his glove hand. This 2008 season marks 39 consecutive years of Bill’s attendance at opening day at Shea. That’s impressive. He started the streak with his father years ago and now Bill is accompanied by his two sons. “It will be sad to see the stadium go. It’s part of my life,” he said. Bill pushed back his jacket sleeve and checked his orange and blue Mets wristwatch. He had to get back to work. Bill, it’s clear the Mets have given you the time of your life. If goodbyes must be said, best they be said quickly. Let a Frank Sinatra ballad extend our North Fork farewell to Shea Stadium. And there used to be a ballpark, Where the field was warm and green And the people played their crazy game, With a joy I’d never seen.

Dan’s North Fork Parto’s 12 West Main Street Riverhead 631-727-4828 ful Sophia Loren. But back to the food. Frank is an opera lover and also something of a philosopher. His food philosophy goes along the lines that cooking is somewhat akin to writing music, in that everything must be harmonious to achieve the desired result, He also insists on all his ingredients being fresh wherever possible because the essence of his Sicilian based cuisine is fresh simplicity. Here you can enjoy some of the best pizza I have ever eaten, even in Italy, but we started this evening

with his version of the classic Caprese mozzarella and tomato salad with grilled chicken. This came as a beautifully plated arrangement of sliced grilled chicken breast with small balls of the lightest and tastiest fresh mozzarella with sliced tomatoes, lots of fresh garlic and a touch of basil. It was dressed with one of those incredible sweet and deep tasting balsamic vinaigrettes that seem to say that you have to have an Italian birth certificate to be able to reproduce them correctly. This is why it is so easy here to forget the outside world and just let the food and wine transport you across to Italy. For the main course, Stella had a veal Milanese special that arrived as large cutlets of very tender veal, impeccably and crisply fried. He also sent out a small portion of one of his special risottos. This one was with mushrooms and again exemplified Italian cuisine at its best, creamy and with deep long lasting tastes. Frank told us that he has a repertoire of around a hundred varieties of risotto - it could be fun to work through them one at a time! I opted for shrimp fra diavolo on a bed of linguine. Again the presentation was a picture, with the shrimp moist and perfectly cooked with some great fresh linguine plus a fresh tomato sauce that had just enough heat to make it interesting, without overwhelming the delicacy of the shrimp. Portions here are generous and I just have to give one word of warning. If you are a vampire or simply do not like garlic, beware and make this known to your server because Frank freely admits to being the “garlic guy!” Desserts are garlic free - I think! The house specialty is the homemade cannoli, but you can also enjoy an excellent cheesecake, chocolate cake or a range of gelati.

I have to start this review by saying that Parto’s has become one of our favorite places over the past five years that it has been open. We know that when we leave we will feel happy, not just because we have eaten well but also because Frank Spatola, his charming daughters, Viviana and Isabella, and his staff’s exuberance and friendliness just make you feel that way. When you walk into this charming restaurant, take a moment to look at the exposed brickwork, the beautiful tiled floor and the wrought ironwork. All of this is also Frank’s work, because back where he is from in Sicily, he worked as a master craftsman in brick and ironwork before he decided to become a professional chef and restaurant owner. Also, take a moment to enjoy the evocative black and white movie stills around the walls that recall such greats as Mastroianni and of course the incomparably beauti-

Parto’s has a small but well-chosen wine list and more and more Long Island wines are featured alongside their international competitors because Frank is a great admirer of the local wineries and their products. They also offer a range of domestic and international beers. This is a restaurant where you can enjoy a main course dish for under twenty dollars and a bottle of very respectable wine also for less than twenty-five dollars, prices that are extremely reasonable in today’s world. All restaurant owners, like homeowners, are facing tremendous price increases in virtually all of their ingredients, especially bread and flour products, and this cost pressure shows little or no signs of abating in the near future. Parto’s has rightly developed a faithful following of regular customers for lunch, dinner and also for take out ordering. This is simply a great and informal place where you can come and eat in pleasantly comfortable surroundings whenever you feel like great Italian food. Whether it be pizza, a plate of lasagna or baked ziti, one of their hot or cold heros, a large dish of one of their twenty two different pasta dishes on the menu, or something from the main meal menu. There is also a varied and interesting list of specials that changes on a weekly basis. – Roy Bradbrook 1043430

Maid of Horror?

On my first to do list were the basics: help Katie with bridal gown selection, choose bridesmaid gowns, book the reception hall, call the church (which church? Wait, what do you mean he’s not Catholic?), book the band, book photographer/videographer, eat at every cakery along the way to discover the latest technological advances in strawberry mousse, yellow cake and butter cream icing combinations. It seemed like my role was evolving into more of a cheerleader, urging my sister on from the sidelines to get these things done. As my to do lists became increasingly long and complex, someone mentioned to me, “What are you planning for the bridal shower and

bachlorette party?” Thankfully, I was in good communication with the other bridesmaids who have a lot of experience planning showers and went on with my action plan. Since most of Cooper’s friends are from out of state, we consolidated the events into one weekend. The person who was the true saving grace in this whole ordeal was my aunt, Donna England. “Victoria, we’ll have it at my house and we’ll make the food. Just be sure the other bridesmaids make the wishing well.” Wishing well? I had no clue what that was but apparently, it’s “old fashioned,” and it’s a well (a wicker laundry basket decorated with pretty ribbon) and guests bring small kitchen appliances like a vegetable peeler or can opener. Okay, that was easy. Now on to the invitations and the dreaded task of what’s the theme, who’s invited, and should it be regrets only or RSVP? I got to work. I got the invitations. I got the addresses and stamps but my head was still spinning as to what to do for Katie’s bachelorette party. Katie is a very traditional woman. Her taste is simple, formal and she has an appreciation for the finer things in life like rose champagne and raspberries. In her words, “No, tacky strippers!” Okay, that was out. What about theatre? Dinner and drinks in the Manhattan and a little Broadway would suffice it. But I couldn’t ask the girls to shell out that kind of money, around $200 for the night, each. It would have (continued on page 47)

When my sister asked me to be her maid of honor, I said yes. Prior to this, I’d only been to two weddings – one, where I was a guest sans date, and the other (my brother’s wedding) where I was a bridesmaid of “courtesy,” being that my family lives by the “blood is thicker than wine” motto. I was happy to accept the coveted role of maid of honor for my sister, since I figured it would be memorable and help forge strong bonds between us, but I had no idea what to do. My sister, Katie Cooper, accepted Jason Alexander’s proposal of marriage in February of 2007. The wedding date is set for April 19, 2008 and will be held at a beautiful neoclassical Georgian mansion (formerly a du Pont mansion) now called The de Serversky Center in Upper Brookville, New York. Although we’ve watched the show countless times, I never thought my sister to be a “Bridezilla.” For those unfamiliar with it, the show is aired by the WE television network. Cameras follow brides who don’t think that spray painting 100 doves gold is even the teeniest bit “over the top,” and demand floral arrangements that leave several countries bereft of flora. And I still don’t think she’s a bridezilla with less than two weeks to go until the big day. As a first grade teacher, Katie is used to being organized and comfortably in control of the people and things around her. So I began my journey by becoming quite the fan of “to do” lists.

Voted “Best New Wedding Location” by Dan’s Papers

DAN'S PAPERS, April 4, 2008 Page 46 www.danshamptons.com

Wedding Trends – from Tents to Tapas Location, location, location. No, we’re not discussing real estate, we’re talking about weddings. “Destination events are in – Ireland, Spain, the Caribbean. People are going everywhere, as long as it’s accessible to some degree,” said wedding and party planner Lynette Renee of LRT Events in Westhampton. But hold on – the East End is a world-class destination in itself, according to Christine Merser, co-owner of Water Mill Party. “More and more brides are renting a home for the week, housing their entourage and using the yard as a tent wedding location,” she said. “Look for more and more tents this summer and know that behind each one is a happy bride who might not be from the area.” The recent bridal expo hosted by Water Mill Party highlighted this trend – in fact the fair itself was held in one of the trendiest type of locations – Martha Clara Vineyard. Dozens of couples have already booked their wedding at Martha Clara for this year. The ceremony and reception can be held inside the barn, which – with decorating – becomes transformed into a party space according to how the bride and groom request. Or either they can be celebrated outside, next to the vineyards. Brides even get their choice of red or white – near the merlot field, which can hold up to 500 people, or the chardonnay field, where as many as 1500 guests can toast the couple and mingle. Not surprisingly, the vineyard’s wedding schedule gets more crowded in the autumn because it’s harvest

time, according to Nancy Bartow, location manager. The number of wedding planners is growing to meet the demand, and the demand has created some converts. Renee used to be strictly a party planner, but all the wedding activity helped her move into this area just recently. Being a party planner is fun in itself, she said, but being a wedding planner plays to the fantasy in everyone. “Who doesn’t want to be a part of a great event? It just feels good to work with them – you want to help them create a dream,” she said. Tents usually, but not always, go with an outdoor wedding – vineyard, beach or lawn. Besides being pretty and defining the center of festivities, tents do what all tents have been doing for thousands of years, including saving many a wedding from uninvited

weather. And of course something has to go under all those pretty new shoes as they dine and dance. Couples are becoming innovative with the flooring, according to a spokesman for The New York Tent, located in Bohemia. “One client recently chose a black and white marble floor to enhance the ‘Gatsby’ theme,” he said. “Others have chosen a maple hardwood floor. Probably the most popular is the use of custom carpeting, which is available in many colors to complete their look,” he added. Photographers are as plentiful on the East End as are beautiful scenery and subjects, and many are turning to wedding photography. Brides are as lovely as ever, but they are getting older, according to photographer Krista Sildver. She said no longer are most of the brides she photographs in their twenties, but that “they tend now to be in their thirties and forties.” That makes life easier for the photographer in several ways, Sildver added. “They’re not as child-like about the planning. I’m dealing with adults.” She said clients come in all varieties and income brackets as well. A “mixed” marriage can mean “socially diverse,” and self-sufficient professional women don’t have to feel the need to “marry up,” especially in second weddings, she pointed out. Recently, she did photographs and published them in a bound book for a woman doctor who was marrying a construction worker. “It was a beautiful wedding. One of the attendants was his little girl.” Prices for Sildver’s bound leather wedding books range from $3,000 to $5,000. (continued on next page)

ride, she cracked a smile, too. The show was a success and funny, especially when Katie told the drag queen what her fiancé did. “He’s a luxury yacht captain.” “Girl, that’s the whitest thing I’ve ever heard.” I was happy to see people laughing and afterward at the Rise Bar in the Ritz, which has the most spectacular view of New York Harbor, the bridges and Statue of Liberty, our group just kept saying, “From the pits

to the Ritz!” After the shower and bachelorette party had passed, I sighed a long breath of relief. Now, as the maid of honor all I have to do is send dresses, make a slideshow, send wedding invites, making seating chart, write speech for rehearsal dinner… Congratulations Katie and Jason. – Victoria L.

dessert,’ one that harmonizes with the rest of the meal.” What could be newer than a cake with a fresh basil sauce and vanilla ginger sable, for example? “One bride chose to go ‘retroAmerican’ and serve a slice of strawberry shortcake with a triple chocolate cookies and vanilla milkshake shooter,” he said. The list goes on, as do other caterers. Like Peter Gato of Food for Forks, the wedding division of catering at the Seafood Shop in Wainscott. The choices of food are endless. As are the choices for flowers. They can range from formal arrangements of ivory roses and peonies to romantic color combinations of lilies, scarlet roses, orange blossoms and hydrangeas. Whichever of the hundreds of possible combinations, one secret Rebecca Jens-Johnson, owner of Moments In Time floral design

in Riverhead gives out: “You can choose and order your flowers as late as two weeks before the wedding. In fact, it’s almost better that way, because we’ll know which varieties are great at the time.” Of course there is the music, the tableware, clothing and the list – and expense – can seem endless to the couple planning the wedding. It all comes together for an elegant event no one will forget. But there is the less glamorous end of outdoor weddings, said a spokesman for Miller Portable Services in Calverton, who was handing out cards and teeny bottles of hand-sanitizer at the expo. “The tents have become so elegant that any vineyard or back yard instantly becomes a catering hall…which brings us to my supporting role of luxurious portable bathrooms.” – Susan Saiter

(continued from previous page)

Brides don’t have to be too young, and food doesn’t have to be too old. Caterer Peter Gato said the sitdown, four-to-five course dinner is nice, but “People are going more in the direction of heavy cocktail, light local buffet, or even a complete reception of tapas and passed appetizers.” He said salsas, Indian spiced rubs, chimmi churri and mojos are new, and guests love them. “People are more so ‘foodies’ than ever before.” And pour après, he suggested, “What about a little take-out bag – like mod’s with a fresh grilled slider and a bag of fries for the ride home? Or the great barista making espressos to end the evening?” Caterer Miche Bacher of Sacredsweets works with organic and local ingredients. “My brides and grooms have really embraced my ‘slow locavore sustainable’ philosophy. I am seeing more and more couples who are considering the cake as a flavor piece, as opposed to a simply something they have to have for the sake of tradition. They are tending toward a ‘composed

A Brush of Beauty When the big day comes, there’s one thing that dominates a bride’s thinking. No, it’s not whether the cake will tip over or the band will show up. It’s looking her best. This may sound like so much beauty magazine doublespeak, but ask any bride and nine out of ten – ten out of ten – will say it’s her reigning thought. Just think: marching down the aisle, with all eyes glued on you, to the love of your life waiting at the other end, while a photographer snaps away. Just a little pressure. Although the dress and hair are of the utmost importance, number one is a bride’s makeup. After all, the majority of her time that day will be spent getting her photo taken. According to experts who engage in the trade of making women look beautiful, airbrushing makeup practically secures a flawless face. It gives a dewy natural look and near-perfect results, and the best part? It lasts for hours.

removing it is as easy as it is with a regular application. The machine is not for commercial sale though, being a heavy piece of professional equipment, and airbrushing is available by appointment only. “Radiant” is the operative word used by Renata Petecka, co-owner of Ananas Spa in Southampton. “Especially when your makeup just has to be perfect, and stay on for many hours. You don’t need a touch up as you do with regular makeup applications,” claimed Petecka. Celebrities are devotees too, she reports,

using airbrushing for demanding repeat appearances. Petecka is also a fan. “I had it done at my aestheticians. It stayed on for hours,” she said of her first application. Brides love it because so many things are out of their control – and they need to control something!” Besides its raved-about, flawless coverage, airbrushing eliminates dark circles and discolorations, an unfortunate part of the go-go life most of us lead, marching down that aisle or not. – Cindi Cook

ONE MAGNIFICENT LOCATION

Sagg Salon’s Fernando Blanco with the magic wand of beauty. Although the technology is new, the technique is not, having been around for the past ten-plus years, according to Fernando Blanco, owner of the Sagg Salon in Sag Harbor. Initially used as an application technique for women who preferred self-tanning over the sun, it’s now taken its place on the face, and requested by brides as well as women who are attending important functions. “There’s no brush; it’s a spray,” Blanco described. “People really like it.” It also makes retouching photos practically unnecessary, he says. “It’s used more for wedding parties, for brides and bridesmaids,” he said of his clientele, which includes women in their 20s through 60s. The whole application takes anywhere from 15 minutes to a half hour, depending on the look you want to achieve, lighter for a casual affair or heavier for an evening gala. “We generally do one layer and then apply a second coat for the finish,” said Blanco. For the past five years, customers at Saks Fifth Avenue in Southampton have requested the technique to achieve a more finished look, says Vera Barron, a makeup artist for Estee Lauder there. “You have to match the foundation to the skin; if you do, it will look more natural,” she said. Barron explained that an airbrushing machine directs a pressurized stream of foundation right into the pores, making for a porcelain appearance. “It’s great if you’re taking photographs; that’s why brides use it so often.” She recommends using a sponge or brush to blend further and says that

Specialty Cakes: Flights of Fancy Couples on the East End who want a wedding cake that could pass as a work of art need to look no further than Sugar Sugar in Westhampton Beach. Whether a sheet cake or layered, Sugar Sugar’s creative duo, baker and cake designer Ilona Lowenthal and her sister, choclatier Susan Balogh, custom designs each cake to fit the personality of the bride and groom. After the couple chooses the texture and flavor they want, the cakes can be decorated with anything from sugar paste flowers and chocolate figures to pastille ribbons and bows that look as though they’re real. The cakes can even be enhanced by fresh berries. And it can all be created to match the wedding. But the cakes speak for themselves, so check out more of Sugar Sugar’s work at cake.bz.

Well actually they can, and they do – get a cake with their portrait or some other meaningful image on top, that is. In chocolate, no less. Mark of Excellence Catering in Port Washington whips up cakes for weddings, as well as other parties and commemorations, with images of the bride and groom’s happy faces on top. “We do all kinds of cakes,” said caterer Marie O’Mara.

Other clients have been non-partisan – Yankees’ fan Billy Crystal has been another client to order a chocolate face cake. Not to drop names, but they’ve also been commissioned to capture the Lamborghini logo atop a chocolate delight. But the list could go on and on. So why shouldn’t the next trend in wedding cakes be putting the bride and groom’s portrait on a cake? The faces can always be put in the freezer and saved for posterity. – Susan Saiter

For the Clintons, they helped commemorate the publication of Hillary’s book and other events. They created a replica of the book for Hillary’s cake, while Bill got his face in chocolate.

I once overheard a conversation between two gents at a sophisticated restaurant in Southampton. The older of the two said to the younger, “Honestly, if you’ve never been to a Sotheby’s auction, you don’t belong at a Sotheby’s auction.” The two laughed in agreement and I continued eating my salad, knowing full well that these two men couldn’t have been more wrong. The truth is if you’ve never been to a Sotheby’s auction, you must go to a Sotheby’s auction. I’ve had several friends who’ve worked at the 264year-old auction house and I’ve even gotten to see a little of the behind-the-scenes action that goes on. It’s an incredible place, housing monumental pieces of art, furniture, literature and the like. This week, the Quillan Collection of 19th and 20th century photographs goes on the block. In the late 1980s, The Quillan Company, an investment firm based out of the British Virgin Islands, contracted New York art dealer Jill Quasha to assemble a collection of no more than 70 photographs, only one per artist. This collection was to uniquely capture the life of photography, spanning its existence as a medium. Acquiring the work of some big names, as well as lesser-known photographers, Quasha spent two years and almost $2 million finding the perfect 69 photographs. Her outlook on choosing the proper pieces was atypical. “There could be no grand plans, no schematic outline of history and none of the customary trappings of seriousness or ambition – no critical or political stance, no aesthetic theory, no dogma,” she said. “And no categories. We would leave classifications of style, eras, artistic movements, and genres – land-

Going Once, Going Twice, Sold!

CLASSIC CARS In Praise of Small Cars In my last article, I wrote about how there’s a small car revolution going on everywhere in the world, especially in Europe. Very slowly, a buyer’s trend toward smaller and more fuel efficient cars is happening here in America. Finally. Anyone who has been reading my weekly automotive commentary in Dan’s Papers for the last seventeen years knows that I’ve always been a proponent of small cars, even when fuel was inexpensive. A lot of my enthusiasm for smaller vehicles comes from the fact that I’ve always been a sports car enthusiast, and as we know, two seat sports cars are, by design, some of the smallest cars on the planet. At the risk of giving away my age, I’d like to discuss some of the smaller cars I’ve owned and driven over the years. The first small car I was ever in as a passenger was a Volkswagen Beetle. I was a junior counselor at a summer camp in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. An older, college-age counselor owned a new Beetle. We drove around the hilly and curvy roads of rural Massachusetts in that little car, and I was constantly amazed at its tenacious grip on the road. It certainly made a different sound than my parents’ 1955 Plymouth Station Wagon. It was a whooshing sound that emanated from behind your head. I vaguely remember my older and more mature driver mentioning that after he graduated from college he wanted to get a car called a Porsche. I didn’t know what he was talking about. Never having owned a Volkswagen Beetle, when I was finally old enough to know the difference, I

You know may anger any Porsche owner reading the square box with the fiberglass roof this story, but there really wasn’t that that could be raised? I really liked much difference in driving an early that vehicle. It was fun to drive Porsche or Volkswagen. Sure, the because you sat high, virtually at the Porsche handled a little better, and foremost front part of the thing.

DAN'S PAPERS, April 4, 2008 Page 56 www.danshamptons.com

Candy from Strangers I don’t know if I’m smarter than a fifth grader, especially these days what with Pluto being downgraded from planet status. But I am sure, by and large, that I’m smarter than my 5-year-old. Compared to a little person of the single digit age, being a parent makes you feel omniscient, especially when you introduce that little brain to your own adult interests and passions. For me, that includes opera. So I was ecstatic a couple years ago when the Met introduced ‘family friendly’ operas – matinees, in English, and in the case of last season’s Magic Flute, actually shortened. Since Hudson wasn’t even 4 last year, we skipped it. But I opted in this year for Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel, which was also shown last week on PBS. Hansel and Gretel seems like the perfect first opera for a little boy. Witches. Houses made of cake and candy. Arias that are little more than folk songs. And just about two hours long. To prepare him, I got the storybook and a CD of the score so he could “get it in his ear.” The recording was in German so while we played games and listened, I provided a quick synopsis of the upcoming scene. He wanted to act it out. I thought we’d just do the part where the evil mother chases the kids around with a broom for breaking the jug of milk (very therapeutic for me). But no. He wanted to do the whole thing so we did, as I sang an improvised English translation.

The day came. He was ready, dressed properly in a shirt and tie, befitting our box seats, and we headed off on the Jitney. But there was a glitch to my perfect plan. The movie on the Jitney was a Sylvester Stallone-type shoot ‘em up. I asked the bus driver to turn our screen off. Not possible, so I covered it with a sheet of paper. Then we got to the Met. Ahh. Safe at the halls of culture, with the flowing staircase, Matisse murals, crystal chandeliers rising as the overture began. When the curtain rose, I expected an over the top woodsman cottage with frilly scenery. Instead, there was a monochromatic beige kitchen with virtually no furniture, and two children in beige costumes. The setting was the U.S., 1950s. The mother looked like Debbie Harry – bleached blonde hair and twoinch black roots. It was a heady production, built around themes of emotional deprivation, physical hunger, spiritual emptiness. Before each scene, 40-foot images of half eaten food on bloody plates were projected on scrims. In the stark grey woods were men in grey suits, with branches instead of heads. Later, a giant tongue pro-

jected through a hole in the curtain (don’t even ask); the witch, behind fake flames in an 8-foot high oven pounded on the door to get out. Instead of a cute gingerbread cookie emerging from the oven, it was a life-size human figure, brown and charred. The production, provocative for adults, was horrifying for a child – Auschwitz meets Three Penny Opera. I felt so angry at my beloved Met, where I spent many an evening as a music student and beyond. Marketing this show as family friendly was a betrayal. And I couldn’t put a sheet of paper over the screen. Instead I repeated, “Isn’t that silly,” or, “It’s just pretend.” But he loved it. Still talks about the chefs with enormous heads and the maitre d’ with a fish face mask; the children coming back to life at the end; the beautiful instruments in the pit. Who knows what he’ll ultimately remember? Did his first trip to the opera ignite a passion? Or leave him forever wondering how that movie on the Jitney ended? Maybe a fifth grader has the answer.

Entertainment In Town A trio of new plays opened recently at all three theaters housed at the 59E59 complex, where Primary Stages is the resident company on the main stage. The playwrights presented are a diverse sampling of talent, with tantalizing ideas, provocative themes and a good ear for contemporary dialogue. Playwright Willy Holtzman returned to the main stage with his latest drama Something You Did along with two up and coming young writers: Garret Jon Grovenveld from San Francisco who is making his New York debut in Theater C with his poetic tale Missives, and one of Scotland’s freshest voices, Simon Farquhar, whose acclaimed play, Rainbow Kiss is having its American Premierein Theater B. Something You Did examines a radical character up for parole after serving 30 years in prison for accidentally killing an African-American cop during a ‘60s anti-war protest. The story asks some interesting questions about America’s response to the unpopular Vietnam war that has many parallels to the war in Iraq, but makes no clear cut conclusions. Holtzman’s story, set in today’s post 9/11 world, is smart, clever and insightful, but flawed, as the drama becomes predictable in Carolyn Cantor’s straight forward staging. Tony Award winner Joanna Gleason, as the central character Alison, doesn’t dig deep enough and as a result her conflicts with the other characters lack needed tension. Her general, naturalistic style does little to serve the text. She is at her best with the spunky prison guard Uneeq (Portia), but that relationship requires less. Her conflict with Gene (Victor Slezak) which forms the play’s core, feels much too relaxed.

review: 59E59 theaters...by gordin & christiano

"Rainbow Kiss" with Peter Scanavino and Charlotte Parry Thirty years have passed since these two last met, but it feels like last week. The evening ultimately feels like much talk and not enough action. Missives, an intriguing tale of friendship crisply directed by Elysabeth Kleinhans, is told in the form of letters slipped under neighboring doors. The clever device is a marvelous tool for the playwright’s lyrical language, but proves to be its undoing as well when the light story turns dark and we discover just why Ben has “gone missing.” The friends, a white gay male named Ben (Richard Gallagher) and a black straight woman named Lia (Shamika Cotton), are challenged by the men in their lives and escape into their shared obsession with a daytime soap, “Through the Hourglass.” The performances are sincere and heartfelt, but Groenveld never has the two missive writers, Ben and Lia, meet face to face, giving the evening a feeling reminiscent of

Tennessee Williams’ early memory plays. Tresser and Randall fare better under Kleinhans’s clearly focused direction of their scenes. The evening’s dramatic failings aside, however, Groenveld proves himself an entertaining playwright of considerable merit. Rainbow Kiss, Farquhar’s impressive debut play (previously written for radio) is a dark tale, which “caused a sensation” when it premiered at the Royal Court in London. Now presented by The Play Company, the New York premiere directed by Will Frears and starring Peter Scanavino is a dazzling production that is both gripping and provocative. Scanavino plays Keith, a single father with an 8 month old son, working at a dead end job as a telephone operator, when a one night stand with Shazza (Charlotte Parry) turns his world upside down. Fueled by their gritty performances and the intensity of Keith’s growing obsession, the play is a disturbing ride that makes many points about the nature of survival in our materialistic culture. Scanavino is absolutely dynamic! He embodies Keith, giving him an all consuming inner life that culminates in a horrifying bloody conclusion. The evening is not for the faint of heart.

Getting Down to the Roots Little Toby Walker is one of a trio of local artists, including Caroline Doctorow, Frank Carillo and the Bandoleros, who will bring a taste of Americana to the East End via the Hamptons Roots Music Festival at the Southampton Cultural Center on April 5. Adept at blues, ragtime and country, the furthest east Walker has come during his travels is the Riverhead Blues Festival, where he’ll be appearing again this summer. And he looks forward to introducing the Hamptons to his bluesy brand of roots music. “I’ve never been on a bill with [Doctorow or Carillo] before,” he said. “It’s going to be a great evening.” Walker is currently preparing a new album, bringing in producer Larry Campbell, who has toured with Bob Dylan and produced Levon Helm’s Grammy-winning album Dirt Farmer. It will be recorded in Helm’s Woodstock, N.Y. studio. Walker expects the album to be released this coming October. He says this latest project will mostly feature sparse arrangements, drawing from the influence of blues greats from the Mississippi Delta region, Virginia and the Carolinas, such as Jack Owen, Eugene Powell and Etta Baker. He learned many of his guitar techniques from these musicians directly, making pilgrimages south to meet his heroes. He didn’t always know where or how he would find them. Sometimes peo-

ple would put him in touch with one of these blues masters; sometimes he’d travel to their general area, looking them up in the phone booth. All of them were friendly and hospitable, he said, eager to share their blues wisdom with him. “My travels to the deep south are a major part of what I am and the music that I play,” he said. “Now I’m bringing it to other people.” As much as he loves to perform, teaching is a big part of Walker’s career as well. You can often find him teaching a guitar class over a long weekend at Jorma Kaukonen’s (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna) Fur Peach Ranch in Ohio. He also teaches Long

Island middle school students about blues history and music in a program called “Blues in the Schools.” He was even invited to teach a special class called “American Roots” at Carnegie Hall for honors middle school students. For more information, upcoming tour dates and samples of his music go to littletobywalker.com. Doctorow, a resident of Bridgehampton, culls her influences from ‘60s folk music, such as Richard and Mimi Farina, Joan Baez and Judy Collins. She is about to release her sixth album, Hummingbird. For more information, go to carolinedoctorow.com. Carillo, having performed and toured with a number of well-known artists such as John Hammond, Eric Clapton, Joan Jett and Tom Petty, is a talented and accomplished songwriter in his own right. His 2006 album, Bad Out There, reached number one on the Roots Music Report Roots Rock Airplay. He will perform with his group, the Bandoleros. To learn more about him, go to frankcarillo.com. The Hamptons Roots Music Festival will be held at 7 p.m. on April 5 at the Southampton Cultural Center, 25 Pond Lane, Southampton. Tickets are $20. All proceeds from the evening will benefit the Sag Harbor Food Pantry. Call 631-871-2306 for additional information. – Tiffany Razzano

Verily, a Convincing Merrily

This past weekend, the Southampton Cultural Center presented what was originally billed as a concert version of Stephen Sondheim’s “Merrily We Roll Along,” directed by Michael Disher, who ended up giving the audience a fully staged production complete with choreography. In the leading roles, Michael

Morch as Franklin Shepard, Susan Vinski as Mary Flynn, and Brett Chizever as Charley Kringas (above left) delivered convincing, polished performances with strong vocals. In the NBC Studios interview scene (above center), Chizever’s rendition of the tricky number, “Franklin Shepard, Inc.,” was seamless, as the

charming, engaging Bethany Dellapolla as K.T. tried to mitigate the palpable tension of the moment. Sarah Sander in the role of Beth (above) left the audience awestruck with her vocally and dramatically committed version of “Not a Day Goes By.” – Susan M. Galardi

Perhaps former “Friends” star David Schwimmer has taken a cue from his acting work: as a member of that ensemble cast he was very good, but as Matt LeBlanc discovered, it’s often the team that makes the man. With that, we can give Schwimmer a pat on the back as he has survived his feature-film directorial debut with Run Fatboy Run…with a little help from his (new) friends. This time around, his chums are writers, namely Michael Ian Black and Simon Pegg, both skilled comedy creators who know how to mulch pop culture and cultivate thorny roses of clever parody. Black (you’ve seen him a million times: MTV’s “The State,” “Reno 911,” “Ed”) first devised this rom-com shredder, then Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) punched it up, relocated it from New York to England and also stars as the lead character – as he often does so well. Add in the beauty of Thandie Newton (Norbit, Crash) and the all-around ability of Hank Azaria (The Simpsons, Mystery Men), and one may feel Schwimmer could have directed this from a barcalounger. Pegg stars as Dennis, a character reminiscent of his slacker from Shaun, someone who is loaded with potential but just doesn’t know where to start. He’s nervous and he’s prone to lousy decision-making, which is all too obvious when he decides to bow out on his wedding day, leaving his pregnant fiancée Libby (Newton) at the altar. Fast-forward five years later, he’s only gotten slackier, working as a dumpy security guard and almost broke. His loser mentality has basically gotten the best of him, as life has become a mope, save the time he spends with the family he once abandoned. He loves his son, and even weirder, really loves his baby’s mother, who has – rightfully – never forgiven him. His only other outlet is hanging with his buddy Gordon (Dylan Moran, standing in for Pegg’s usual bum-in-tandem Nick Frost), so it’s no wonder he’s not quite

Run Fatboy Run

the physical specimen. However, motivation arrives in the guise of handsome Whit (Azaria), an American hedge-fund manager who sweeps Libby off her feet with charm and a ripped bod. You guessed it: Dennis is suddenly motivated, and decides to prove to his ex that he can get in shape and pull it together by taking on Whit in a marathon. It’s time for an important announcement: this is not your typical Simon Pegg film, at least not to those who swoon at Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. The expectation with “Run” is that this take on Hollywood romantic comedies would be in line with the loving rips he’s had with horror and action flicks, but unfortunately this is less a droll dissection and more of a slapstick re-envisioning. Yes, seeing him stumble and bulge as he begins to train is a blast, but it would have worked just as nicely in conjunction with more creativity. The big question here is why Pegg didn’t employ his usual style after taking on Michael Ian Black’s original screenplay. Black’s work is always offbeat, so it would be a surprise if the lack of bite came on his end. But nonetheless, he makes this movie watchable by completely smothering this flick with his late-bloomer charm, and also proves that he is just as capable a clown as any goofball the USA has to offer. And Schwimmer? The movie’s a bit clunky and somewhat heavy-handed, which could have morphed this very run-ofthe-mill film into a sitcom, save for Pegg’s never-quit charm and timing, the smarm of Azaria and the warmth of Newton. Yes, it’s finally time for a “Friends” pun: It’s a good thing that his cast was “there for him,” but was he “there for them too?” Truth be told, they didn’t really need him.

Silvia Lehrer’s Cooking Column globe, serve as managing staff, purchasing product and inventory, dining room maitre d’s, waiters, waitresses and cooks for their primary goal in restaurant and hotel management. On a subsequent tour of the professional kitchen Chef Moran eloquently stated, “The students learn everything from the ‘Gate to the Plate.’” When chatting with Barry Gump, the wine and beverage manager, he added, “Students can learn everything from the grape to the table,” another process in this formal management program.

While on a brief winter hiatus in Miami Beach, Florida, I had the pleasure of dining in the teaching restaurant at Florida International University’s School of Hospitality and Tourism Management (FIU). The approach at the University’s business school is to teach the business of food service with a specialty in hospitality. Ground breaking for an expanded teaching restaurant program is expected to take place later this year. Southern Wine & Spirits, in partnership with FIU, is a large donor lending their support to the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management program at South Beach Food and Wine Festival’s major fundraiser in Miami Beach each winter for FIU’s teaching restaurant and scholarships. Following a delicious lunch of caprese salad – tomato, basil and mozzarella, an exceptional shrimp over penne with asparagus, and dark flourless chocolate cake for dessert – Chef Michael Moran, the school’s ebullient Culinary Coordinator, introduced the students to the guests in the dining room. The students, from virtually all over the

CAPRESE SALAD Everyone is familiar with the sandwiched tomato, basil mozzarella salad known as caprese. If you have never prepared this simple salad here it is as served at FIU. Serves 6 2 red tomatoes-on-the-vine, thinly sliced 2 yellow tomatoes, thinly sliced 1 pound quality fresh mozzarella (not Buffalo), thinly sliced Several sprigs fresh basil leaves 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons Sherry wine vinegar Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper Black Gaeta olives for garnish 3-4 tablespoons thin basil puree for garnish, optional* 1. Alternate layers of tomato and basil dividing equally on 6 salad plates. Dress each dish with olive oil and a light drizzle of vinegar, salt and pepper. 2. Pull basil leaves from their stems. Stack the leaves and roll up like a cigar. Slice crosswise through the leaves to “ribbon” them. Scatter the ribbons over the tomato mozzarella sandwiches. Place

2 or 3 olives on each plate for serving. 3. If using the basil puree dress the edge of each plate Jackson Pollock style for presentation. *Note: For the basil puree place equal amounts of basil leaves and extra-virgin olive oil, season with salt and pepper in a food processor and puree. PENNE WITH SHRIMP AND ASPARAGUS To prepare the dish have all the ingredients in each category ready to cook. In professional jargon this is referred to as mis en place. The FIU food requisition sheet for the above recipe is intended to serve 35. Here is my interpretation to serve 4-6 For the asparagus 1/2 pound medium asparagus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2 shallots, finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 1 can (1 lb. 12. oz) plum tomatoes Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper Dash or two red pepper flakes For the pasta 1 pound penne Coarse (kosher) salt for the cooking water For the shrimp 2-3 tablespoons basil chiffonade plus extra leaves for garnish 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 1 pound large shrimp, 22-25 count, peeled and deveined 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced (continued on next page)

DAN'S PAPERS, April 4, 2008 Page 66 www.danshamptons.com

Arts & Galleries Winter Shows in New York Part II: Whitney Biennial, 2008 There are several surprises this year at the Whitney Biennial, but they are not the kinds one would normally imagine. The first is the inclusion of Spike Lee’s When the Levees Broke, a four-hour film that one art critic admitted she couldn’t completely see. This critic, on the other hand, saw the whole version on HBO in 2006. Why the movie was included remains a secret, since it certainly is not what we would call a “cutting edge” work like the other films and videos in the show. That Lee is acknowledged at all for his achievement is commendable. However he remains, after all, an extraordinary American filmmaker. Thus, it must be noted that Lee’s movie is passionate in ways that most previous documentaries have not been about Hurricane Katrina. His attention to the importance of family and loss of one’s home is particularly noteworthy, considering that these same themes show up in many of Lee’s fictional films, including Do the Right Thing and Crooklyn. Additionally, Lee’s recurring command of physicality regarding a particular place and setting is outstand-

ing in When the Levees Broke. “Physicality” is a word that might also aptly describe the Biennial’s installations at the Park Avenue Armory. The surprising juxtaposition of the Armory’s 1870s architecture and ornate interiors designed by Tiffany and Stanford White with the conceptual art works is the Biennial’s real aesthetic achievement. For example, there’s Mario Ybarra’s “The Scarface Museum,”complete with memorabilia from the movie, and MK Guth’s “Ties of Protection and Safekeeping,” where braided fabric and artificial hair are hung from the ceiling. (Viewers are encouraged to answer the question, “What is worth protecting” on the strips of braid and hair.) Texture and material are also highlighted

With Marion Wolberg Weiss at the Whitney Museum, which should come as no surprise where conceptual art is concerned. Especially appealing to this critic is Mika Rottenberg’s video installation where various monitors are encased in a broken-down wooden shack. The viewers become voyeurs as they watch other people in the videos observing farm life. Of course, films can also celebrate texture and materials, like Javier Tellez’ Letter on the Blind about blind men describing an elephant. The depiction of the elephant’s skin is particularly mesmerizing; it’s as if we were actually touching the animal ourselves.

ART COMMENTARY

M.K. Guth’s installation.

The Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum will be on view until June 1.

Honoring the Artist: Daniel Pollera Looking at this week’s cover by Daniel Pollera gives us a comforting feeling as familiar objects and settings come to life. Yet a second glance reveals (as with almost all of the artist’s work) a sense of contradiction: the juxtaposition of vertical and horizontal lines in the foreground conveys enclosure; the background communicates the expanding sea. It’s as if some source is drawing our entire being out to the horizon. In the many conversations I’ve had with Mr. Pollera over the years, the spiritual meaning of his work rarely surfaces. Instead, he talks with enthusiasm about his family, home and love of painting. This time he concentrates on his creative process. Q: The cover is called “The Hamlet.” It’s a real place, but where is it? A: It’s from a photograph I took of the hamlet of Orient, looking west toward Greenport. You know, we rent a house in Southold each year, and I take

long drives to discover new places. By the way, the cover is owned by Shep and Linda Schinberg. They would be pleased to know I mentioned this. Q: When you take these drives, wherever they may be, what’s your intention? A: Each area has its own aura. I try to seek and find that aura. I try and see what some other people don’t. I take a lot of daytrips, to spend the day by myself. Q: (laughing) Except when you take your poodle along with you on the boat. I know you create paintings from life, although you may add some images and elements. But there’s always that sense of strong lighting, shadows and composition. Recently, however, you are making up images that don’t exist. A: That’s right. The important thing is to create an emotional feeling. Q: Any other new directions besides creating

images that don’t exist? A: It’s good to try different things, to change, to be fresh. The one big change is that I’m working with oil. This is my second year for that. You don’t have as much control with oils; it allows me to loosen up. But oil can surprise you. I’m also using more intense colors. I can get more moods that way. Q: How does it feel to experiment like this? A: It takes guts. You may fail along the way. Sometimes you make a mistake. You learn. I’m figuring it out along the way. – Marion Wolberg Weiss Mr. Pollera’s work can be seen at Southampton’s Chrysalis Gallery.

Earthly Delights

By April Gonzales

Composting is a natural process of decomposition. When plant material dies, organisms like bacteria, worms and fungi eat what’s left. They can chew their way through a pile of leaves, lawn clippings, vegetable scraps and old flowers and turn it into soil that is used to feed the garden. It happens in the woods and fields around us all the time. Experts may argue about the technical name for the process, but they are now using this cycle of life in high tech composting facilities to produce good garden amendments and methane for fuel. Will Brinton, Phd, an agriculturalist and agronomist who runs Wood’s End Laboratory, recently spoke at the Silas Marder Gallery in Bridgehampton. He has advised Prince Charles of England, worked with the United States Army and now is helping nurseries across the country replace peat moss with a uniform type of compost in their growing mixes. However, odors from large composting facilities, zoning issues and run off have caused concern for some people, so he now works with contained steel units – much like whiskey stills – that produce consistent, clean results. Brinton has invented some interesting tests that show what nutrients are available in any given compost sample and if it’s “ripe.” Everyday gardeners don’t have to make big investments in equipment or time even though there are countless products in garden catalogues that guarantee great results in just three months. Rotating barrels, stacking bins, and herbal additives all claim to contribute to the end result. Some create the right balance of fungi and bacteria to improve the soil, others minimize labor as turning

Making Compost – The Worms Crawl In...

compost seems to be de riguer. Yet there is a lazy person’s way to get rich crumbly soil while letting the worms do the work. Building a series of bins from some chicken wire or old pool fencing is the easiest way. Fill one up with all your yard debris, layered with kitchen scraps, lawn cuttings and maybe some manure from the neighbor’s horses. Throw in all the herbs and annuals from your garden clean up in the fall. If you’re energetic, give it a turn once in a while. Then next year begin to fill the middle bin, and eventually fill the last bin. By the time you finish filling the last bin, the first one will be ready to use and you will have saved some money in dump fees and fertilizer costs. Certain conditions are necessary to promoting the process of decomposition. A shady spot with overhead irrigation is ideal. Water is essential to the process and speeds it up remarkably. Having the compost on the ground versus in elevated bins or concrete floors, means that existing soil organisms can colonize the pile. No fancy additives are necessary to enhance bacteria or worm populations that will get the job done while you’re picking apples or planning for next year’s harvest. The enormous pile that you heaped up will slowly shrink over the following winter and spring.

What goes into the pile determines the quality of the dark, rich crumbly soil that you are hoping for. Maple leaves break down easily but oak leaves do not. Impatiens seem to liquefy with the first frost, but some herbs and perennials will leave stalks behind. Brinton recommends putting some wood ash in with the kitchen scraps to maintain the correct ph. Kitchen scraps may attract raccoons or possums but when these nocturnal neighbors dig around in the pile they mix up the organic material much in the same way turning would. Of course some bits may get distributed across the lawn as well, which is why the wire enclosure should be big enough for them to turn around in. And on their way to and fro they may have a snack on some slugs. So when is it done and ready to use? “The older the better” says Brinton. “Immature compost can inhibit your plants’ growth.” Compost should look like chocolate brownie mix after the egg and butter is mixed in, but before the milk is added. It can be screened for use or simply sift out the biggest sticks with your hand or a pitchfork when you are ready to dig into it. The benefit to your garden can be measured by the nutrients available in your compost. Cornell Cooperative Extension can do a soil test that will analyze the nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium in your compost. Many commercial companies that produce compost test it regularly to ensure a consistent and clean product. The real beauty of the composting process is that a lot of contaminants are neutralized, which is why Phd’s are now studying the process so carefully. Brinton worked with the United States Army to see if they could decontaminate an Oregon Base. Material from explosives stored on the base in WWII washed out of their shells and into the surrounding soil. They mixed the contaminated earth with alfalfa, hay and manure. After microorganisms broke everything down the compost was tested. The results found that the contaminants were practically undetectable. It is encouraging to know that while we are cleaning up the yard by composting, people like Brinton are cleaning up the environment.

What to Do Right Now This is the week for final spring clean ups in areas where daffodils are coming up, otherwise they can get beat up by the rake. Also, carefully cut back the old dead foliage from your hellebores as the tender new leaves and flower buds are just beginning to emerge. If the magnolias or apples have any branches that broke in recent wind storms, bring them in and put them in a vase in a sunny window. A last chance to prune the peaches can also give you some nice branches to force.

Raving Beauty

By Janet Flora

How Now, Fair Brow? Like a frame encloses a picture – our eyebrows frame our face. Without them, our faces would seem a bit expressionless. A well-defined eyebrow can do more for your appearance than the lushest lashes, or the plumpest lips. The perfect brow has changed appearances over decades. In the ‘20s and ‘30s it was thin and round, almost a semi-circle; in the ‘40s and ‘50s it was thicker and exaggerated – think Joan Crawford and Lucille Ball. By the ‘80s Brooke Shields made a statement with brows that were slightly bushy, brushed upward and held in place with product. Starting in the 90s and into this millennium, the perfect brow is the natural brow. Ideally it should start at the inner corner of the eye, arch at the center and get thinner as it slopes down from the arch, ending at the outer corner of the eye. Its thickness or thinness depends on the texture, and ranges from coarse to fine. If you have abundant brows, keeping them perfect is easy. Tweezing is better than waxing. Even the thickest and coarsest brows have a fragile root, and over time, waxing can retard the growth. However, waxing is great for in-between the brows, to avoid the dreaded uni-brow. Tweezing should almost never be done at the top of the brow, but rather from underneath, the side closest to the lashes. If some hairs are long and unruly, brush them up toward the hairline and cut them with a small scissors. Hold the scissors vertically not horizontally, to avoid cutting the hair too bluntly. Blunt

The “perfect brow” has changed over the decades as these Hollywood beauties show. Guess who. hair won’t blend back into the rest of the brow easily. If you have skimpy brows getting them to look well defined is more challenging. Sometimes over-tweezing, age or fine hair will cause the brows to be sparse and have spaces where there should be hair. You can fill these spaces with a variety of products sold in drugstores and designer cosmetic lines. Powdered brow fillers, which are very common, are available in many shades. They are used with a stiff, angled brush and the color is applied into the spaces where the brow hair is thin, or even to add color to brows that are a pale shade. However, powdered brow products don’t last as long as pencils, and if used improperly the powder will end up in places other than the brow. If you use a pencil it must be a brow pencil. Brow pencils are drier and less waxy than eyeliner pencils. Maybelline brow pencils have been around for decades and are available in all chain drugstores. They’re inexpensive and come in a variety of colors. The blonde is a great choice for those with blonde to medium brown hair. The pencil is also available in dark brown, char-

coal grey (great for those with black or almost black hair – since black is too harsh) and auburn. Shu Uemura makes a pencil in five shades that is formulated to release pigment when applied to the brow. The secret to using a pencil is to make short strokes – almost as if you were drawing on tiny hairs. Make these short strokes in the opposite direction of the hair growth. This will assure that the brows never look drawn on. The cosmetic company, Make Up For Ever, has created a waterproof, brow corrector cream in a tube. It comes in several shades and should be applied with a small brush. It’s great to add color to light brows, fill in spaces, and will keep brows defined even while working out or swimming – assuring your face is always well framed. – Janet Flora Janet Flora writes lifestyle and beauty features, and is a former contributor to Make-up Artist and Health magazines.

Health, Beauty & Fitness Here Comes the Cold Spring is in the air, and just as we open our mouths wide, grins stretched across our faces, we inhale gulps of pollen, dust and germs, finding ourselves weathering the first few beautiful days of spring in our beds, with colds. The golden rule when it comes to weathering the storm of the common cold is to listen to your body. This may sound simple, but most people have grown so comfortable with their routines

“If your nose is not becoming to YOU…perhaps you should be coming to me! The most common facial feature that people wish they could change is their nose. Research shows that more men and women at a younger age are now opting for nasal surgery. Often, in their quest for a more aesthetic and attractive nose, people forget that it also serves the important purpose of cleaning, humidifying and warming the air we breathe. While a good looking nose is desirable, a nose that does not work well can be the bane to one’s existence.

The procedure itself has evolved from the days of lengthy packing, significant pain and eyes swollen shut – to one marked by overnight non-compression pads, minimal swelling and bruising and only mild to moderate discomfort.The kinder and gentler nose operation in Dr. Kelly’s hands can create a nose that not only looks good but works effectively as well. Computer imaging is available during consultation and allows you to speak candidly about your expectations for the surgery. With Dr. Kelly’s guidance you choose the nose that is aesthetic, fitting for your facial features, consistent with your goals, will work effectively and is possible surgically.

that their body has little to say about it. As soon as you feel a cold coming on, respond to your body’s needs. It’s going to be shouting for hydration, which could be manifested in dry lips and skin and a scratchy throat. By immediately upping your intake of liquids, like water, broths and drinks that have limited sugar and caffeine, you’ll start defending yourself immediately. Yet many people don’t take the cues from their body, remaining true to routines and habits that may not serve them well. For example, if you drink coffee in the morning, you’ll probably have the urge to spoon those

Nasal surgery is decidedly one of the most intricate of facial surgeries. It involves changing skin,cartilage and frequently bone. Each serves a specific purpose and each plays off the other in the healing process. Searching for a surgeon with highly refined skills in nasal surgery is the wisest decision that a potential patient can make. Doing your home work and choosing a surgeon with the credentials and experience of Dr. Paul Kelly is of extreme importance when considering nasal surgery. He is double boarded in not only Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery but also in surgery of the Head and Neck. This combination allows him to pay Dr. PAUL KELLY MD, FACS particular attention to the cosmetic as well as the functional aspects of nasal surgery.

grinds into that filter even as you sneeze. But caffeine is the last thing your body needs when it’s trying to flush out a sickness. Caffeine, a diuretic, dehydrates your body. So for all the water the doctor recommends you drink to help cleanse your system, drink even more if you insist on drinking caffeinated beverages. Granted, we can’t always automatically push pause on our lives and retire to bed to drink water. People depend on caffeine to help them through times when they might be feeling lethargic, and nothing inspires lethargy quite like illness. But even better than coffee are vitamin and mineral supplements. Emergen-C, which comes in single-serving pouches, is a mix that you pour into your water to make a fizzy drink. It’s packed with 1,000 mg of Vitamin C, B vitamins to boost your energy and 32 minerals and electrolytes. Airborne, which comes in tablet form, is another great herbal immune booster. Kids are at a particularly high risk of catching colds. The average child may get up to eight colds a year, just from the viruses and germs that are circulating in the air in schools. Hydration is key for them as well. But there is some controversy as to whether administering extra doses of vitamins, exceeding the recommended daily allowance, is healthy for children. Consult your doctor before loading them up on supplements. The other thing your body will be craving more than ever when you’re sick is sleep. While some people are addicted to caffeine, others are addicted to moving, working, and pushing themselves. Some people don’t know how to slow down. And for these people, sickness is the body’s plea to take it easy. If you feel sickness coming on, don’t push yourself until a cold becomes the flu. Instead, nurse yourself immediately. Go to bed well before the late night shows. Take one day off when you first feel sick to sleep all day. Use your sickness as an invitation to pamper yourself. Take a long hot bath infused with essential oils like rosemary, eucalyptus and peppermint. In the end, you’ll be more productive because you’ll be back to 100% sooner. It may mean canceling a few plans or rescheduling a few meetings, but it will be worth it. The main thing the common cold demands is time. There is no miracle elixir that will make symptoms go away, but by giving your body exactly what it asks for, you can speed the healing process along.

DAN’S COVERS Dear Dan, I have been reading your Dan’s Papers, when I have been able to find them, for years. Dan’s Papers is an excellent weekly periodical with many interesting articles (that you see nowhere else!) such as book reviews, dining reviews, local news events and weekly events, all wonderful and interesting. But what I love and look forward to the most are the covers! The beautiful, unique, magnificent art we see week after week. I do not want to throw them out. I want to display them! How about having frames made with a mat border that would hold a complete issue of Dan’s Papers? What an exquisite wall display of art. A larger wall with twelve frames, displaying twelve different issues of Dan’s Papers would be beautiful, interesting and a great conversational piece. As few or as many as you wanted could be displayed. I must admit this was not solely my idea. My husband Joe recently purchased four frames for 33 1/3 LP records, which holds the record and cover. We love them. Joe changes the record albums every few months. During the holidays we had Christmas albums. Now we have Al Hirt @ The Mardi Gras, Sammy Davis, Jr., Just For Love for Valentine’s Day, The Everley Brothers and Tommy Makem for St. Patrick’s Day and Montovani Film Encores for the Academy Awards. Last summer we had a travel theme. The record covers are also works of art and are fun to display, but they do not compare to the magnificent works of art on Dan’s Papers covers I would love to display. Let me know what you think of the idea. Sincerely, Genevieve Giargiana Nesconset, NY

changed over the years Your article paid fitting tribute to a unique and well-loved institution. The last paragraph especially touched my heart! Sincerely, Patricia Cleary South Carolina P.S. My niece, a Montauk resident has been keeping me up to date on the changing fortunes of the Villa and called your office to request an additional copy of the article. She spoke to Tom, who sent it directly to me. Thanks again.

You can always frame them yourself. – DR

WHAT’R YOU TALKIN’ ABOUT Dear Dan, One of my close friends is a Manhattan resident. He has visited the Hamptons on two occasions as a guest at my home in Amagansett. And aside from those two memorable weekends, he’s never had the opportunity to spend more pleasant days in this wonderful community. Evidently, in a store nearby his home on Park Avenue, he stumbled over a stack of Dan’s Papers most recent issue (#49). He picked up a copy and immersed himself in the content, which, in his own words, evoked a great deal of pleasure. He was enlightened about the Hamptons Subway Newsletter and asked

WE HEART THE VILLA Dear Dan, Thank you so much for the wonderful piece you wrote on Villa Maria (February 1, 2008) I was a student at the Dominican Junoirate from 1950 to 1953, when it closed as a high school and have very fond memories of both the Villa and the town of Water Mill. Before my husband and I moved to South Carolina, a friend and I drove out to the Villa, which was then the Siena Spirituality Center. The gracious sisters gave us a tour of the renovated house and we walked the grounds, which seemed not to have

I miss going there. – DR SUBWAY SALUTE Dear Dan, I guess that means the end of the Shelter Island Shuttle! That’s too bad. I used to enjoy my subway rides going end to end. I used get my position in the front car along side the motor man and gaze out of the front window, watching as we rolled by signal lights and switches. (I always wondered where those other tracks curved off to!) The best part was looking at all the faces as we pulled into each station. Happy faces, sad faces, angry and surprised faces, (those were probably the people that didn’t believe that there was a subway!) I’m going to miss the “Hampton Subway”. I don’t have a million bucks to join the club. Too bad! Thanks, Kenny Lomba Setauket, New York Via e-mail Don’t be so sure this is the end for Hampton Subway. – DR

me if I’d ever roamed about the Hamptons by way of this wonderful and exciting metroline. Confounded, I answered, “What’r you talkin’ about?” Just as confused, he said, “You know, the subway you guys got out there.” Still perplexed, I pondered a few seconds and assertively replied, “Are you dreaming? There’s no subway in the Hamptons.” “What’r you mean, I just read about it in Dan’s Papers this afternoon,” assured my naive friend. After having read your newsletter, he was convinced beyond doubt that a subway existed and operated in the Hamptons. He then became so enthusiastic and impatient that he quickly decided to visit me again this upcoming season and ride in the deluxe parlour car at the front of the train. Following about fifteen minutes of ineffective explanations, he finally understood that the newsletter is a work of fiction intended for entertainment. Needless to mention, my friend was disappointed and deflated. At the end of the conversation, when my head stopped spinning, I started reading the same newsletter, which brings me to the objective of this communiqué`. Intrigued, I re-read it, this time more attentively. The concept of the story is a great act of creativity. It is humorous, witty, matter-of-factly, and, to those individuals who, like my Manhattan buddy, aren’t too familiar with the Hamptons, quite believable. Most of us writers, because of deep-rooted egotistical dispositions, or perhaps afflicted by other psychological deviations, seldom praise the writings of another author. In a rare moment, I commend you for your congeniality and literary mastery in conceiving the Hamptons Subway Newsletter. With uncertain promises, I look forward to reading succeeding sequels. I wonder if in the near future we might read about a possible Subway Series, say between The Bridgehampton Bees and The East Hampton Bonackers. Another friend of mine, Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier would certainly take pride in being a commentator, if such an event were to materialize. Keep it coming. Best regards, Dan Simone. Amagansett, N.Y. Via e-mail Thanks. – DR

Police Blotter Montauk Parade The heavy police presence at the St. Patty’s Day parade in Montauk kept the shennanigans at an all time low. While there were some reports of rowdiness and a mooning, the efforts of Village and Town police kept things in order for the family parade. * * * Not Such A Good Idea A man who was pulled over for a general traffic violation in East Hampton began to shout obscenities at the officer. The officer found the man to be in possession of drugs and arrested him. He was charged for being that moron who thought everything would be OK after cursing out a cop. * * * Fell Asleep A drunk man in Hampton Bays was spotted asleep in the driveway of the bar. When police arrived and woke him up, the man claimed he was trying to sleep off being drunk.ß Police called the guy a taxi. No charges were filed.

* * * Smack in the Face A man in Montauk got smacked in the face not once but twice after he had an argument with who appeared to be his girlfriend while at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. No charges were filed, but witnesses did report the incident. * * * Free Beer A man in Southampton was arrested after he attempted to leave a bar without paying for his drinks. The bartender chased down the man and bear hugged him until police arrived. * * * Slow Truck Driver On Friday a man driving an 18-wheeler was backing up traffic on Route 27 because he was driving only 35 mph in a 55 mph zone. A police officer was driving two cars behind the truck, but did not pull the man over for driving too slow. Witnesses reported more than 60 cars driving bumper-to-

bumper along Montauk Highway between Amagansett and Montauk. The incident was reported through several telephone complaints. * * * No More Calls A woman in Southampton reported to police that a man was repeatedly calling her cell phone and making old fashioned prank calls such as the “is your refrigerator running,” or the “milk salesman” prank. Police and this writer are still not sure what the milk salesman prank call is all about. * * * Yes, Yes Bub A group of teenagers were caught drinking beer and having a large pit fire at the bay in East Hampton. Police broke up the get together, confiscated the beer and wrote a few summonses. The teens then roared off in large pick-up trucks. There is no report on how these kids can afford to pay for the gas in those things. – Written and Compiled by David Lion Rattiner
