Saving a nature house

When the East Hampton budget had to be slashed in 2010, the Fort Pond House in Montauk was put on the block. Offering the only public access to Fort Pond (except for a boat ramp), it was a nature center for Montauk’s kids. Montauk was outraged. But then nobody bought it. Last summer, with the budget in better shape, it was taken off the market. This spring it gets a new roof. Soon it will be once again swarming with Cub Scouts, kids from the nearby Montauk School and wildlife experts giving lectures. That it was an asset to Montauk but would be offered for sale by East Hampton Town, which governs the unincorporated hamlet of Montauk, is a sobering thought. But all’s well that ends well. -- DR 5.

Sag Harbor’s Billy Joel surprised students and faculty at Deasy Elementary School in Glen Cove last week when he attended “The River of Dreams,” a Billy Joel tribute concert performed by kindergartners, first graders and second Billy Joel graders. Afraid of making the young singers nervous, Joel watched the show from the back of the auditorium. In other Piano Man news, Joel will join Southampton’s Howard Stern for an exclusive “Town Hall” discussion on Monday, April 28. The interview will take place at a secret Manhattan location and air on both Stern’s and Joel’s SiriusXM stations. Stern said in a press release, “The 2010 interview I did with Billy Joel was one of my favorites of my career. Now, this special hits a whole new level, with surprise guests whose lives have been changed by Billy, from the unknown to the famous, giving Billy the tribute, and fans the treat, that they deserve.”

“Along with the New York Subway System, Hamptons Subway is the only underground transit system in the State of New York.”

The H amptons Subway Newsletter By DAn rattiner

Week of April 18–24, 2014 Riders this past week: 9,841 Rider miles this past week: 112,412 DOWN IN THE TUBE E. L. Doctorow was seen on the subway heading from Sag Harbor to Noyac last Thursday. Also on the subway but going from Noyac to Sag Harbor that day was Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley. Russell Simmons was seen heading from the Georgica stop to Bridgehampton on Friday afternoon. SUBWAY LEAVING The Subway Restaurant chain, which has faithfully served its sandwiches to satisfied straphangers on all our platforms since 2008, may be packing up and leaving next month. Their lease is up on May 1 and so far they have not said if they will be renewing. Yes, the rent has gone up, at least on some of our tonier platforms. But on other platforms the rent has gone down. You just can’t win.

Let the real you


SUBWAY ACCOUNTING SCANDAL The Metropolitan Transit Authority has ordered an investigation into the private financial affairs of Hamptons Subway, even though Hamptons Subway is a private company responsible only to its board of directors. The matter came to the attention of the MTA when an income tax investigator at the New York State treasury noticed that the reported number of riders using the subway was 1/10 of what is reported in this newsletter. The 2013 return, for example, shows there were just 50,101 riders that year when, in fact, there were 501,010 riders. Total income was recorded as $448,010 instead of what should have been $4,480,100. At the same time, the Commissioner’s salary was indicated as just $53,000 when in fact it is 10 times that. Who is stealing 9/10 of the profits from the treasury, they wondered? And so the MTA, which has bestowed an honorary membership upon Hamptons Subway, is looking into the matter. Commissioner Aspinall, at a news conference, said there has to be an explanation for this. And he has promised to find out what it is before the week is out. “I am not a crook,” he said.

April 18, 2014 Page 27 13 INJURED AT MONTAUK YARDS 13 motorists in Montauk were blown out of their cars and suffered injuries Saturday night while driving along Industrial Road at 2 a.m. The catastrophe occurred because of new high pressure water hoses workmen were using for the first time to clean the subway cars in the Montauk Subway Yards next door. All subway cars are taken to the Yards for cleaning after the subway shuts down every night. And this was the first night the new high-speed hoses were “on line” for the cleaning. As the ambulances arrived, the workmen told police that the new hoses “malfunctioned,” but a quick test showed they worked properly and the men had simply failed to read the manual on their operation. The water blew holes through the chain-link fence, causing three of the four German shepherd guard dogs that patrol the grounds to run off. The 11 cars, which were hit, were reportedly found where they had come to a halt all shiny and new. None of the motorists were seriously injured. All were treated at the scene. But all reported that shoes were polished and shirts and pants were pressed and starched beautifully. Anyone seeing a German shepherd in Montauk should call the authorities immediately. Do not try to pet these dogs. They’ll rip your arms out of their sockets. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE Mr. Aspinall’s lawyer has informed the newsletter that the Commissioner will write no message this week.

Happy EastEr!

Four Twenty Police have received advance intelligence reports of questionable activities planned for this Sunday, April 20. First, they are warning the public to be prepared for flocks of small children carrying baskets and running around in open fields searching for colorful plastic eggs filled with candy. They are further alerting the public to the possibility of teenagers congregating in various places at around 4:20 p.m. in order to smoke cannabis. While either of these possibilities seems worrisome enough, the troubling confluence of both occurring simultaneously is explained by the fact that this year, the Christian holiday of Easter is falling on the same day as “420,” the internationally recognized pot-smoking holiday. To quote the police alert: “Residents should be prepared for the possibility of roving bands of young folks crazed by sugar mingling with older children driven mad by the demon weed. It is recommended that residents remain indoors.” Anxious residents can take solace in the fact that these two holidays will not overlap again until 2025. McGumbus In Training Those driving across Shelter Island this past week were not imagining things. That was Old Man McGumbus, 104 year-old WWII veteran and former welterweight champion, straddling the double-yellow line and trying to punch cars as they went by. McGumbus, displaying remarkable speed and agility in his padded gloves and boxing shorts, spent several mornings swinging his arms at passing cars—although he seemed to be targeting foreign models almost exclusively, and he seldom landed anything but glancing blows. Police were successful in getting McGumbus to stop each day with a warning, but by Wednesday they felt it was necessary to arrest the automotive pugilist. McGumbus, who claimed to be in training for a return to the ring, put up a ferocious resistance, pointing out that, “Sure, Rocky punched beef, but try finding a meat locker on Shelter Island. McGumbus punches cars.” He was released.

The East Hampton Arts Council’s Kate Mueth and Jane Martin met with media moguls at a front table while Wölffer Estate’s Donnell Brown and Douglas Elliman’s Paul Brennan cut deals and lunched at other, separate tables. And Pierre’s own Pierre Weber made the scene at Fresh Hamptons Sunday night. While he chatted with Fresh chef/owner Todd Jacobs at the bar, painter Reynold Ruffins dined with friends at a table. Later, while Jacobs was talking about when Sag Harbor organic farmers Dale Haubrich and Bette Lacina were due to return from their winter farm in Arizona—in they walked! Haubrich and Lacina enjoyed their dinner at the bar, after their first day back was spent planting—look for their organic rhubarb and the other produce on the Fresh menu soon.

Blowin’ in the Wind Windmills in the Ocean and the Hamptons May Answer Energy Problems By Dan Rattiner


ou may not know this, but about 20 miles off Montauk, just south of Block Island, there are five steel windmills under construction that will soon rise hundreds of feet above the ocean’s surface to start spinning away converting the wind into power. You won’t see these windmills from Montauk, but you will see them from Block Island. Block Island is one of the windiest places in America, and Block Islanders often proudly tell you to hang onto your hat because of that, so for them to see the windmills offshore spinning away is a matter of pride. Last month, however, the private power company constructing these windmills applied to build 35 more windmills in the ocean in order to provide power, this time to Long Island from a cable coming under the ocean to attach to a power station here. Don’t get all excited about hearing this. God forbid there should be any windmill paddles spinning away 600 feet up and visible at the horizon off Montauk’s pristine beaches. The 35 additional windmills are to be located 16 miles off Martha’s Vineyard, further from Montauk. Did I just hear a very soft “hooray!” Yes? Fact is that we have a simply terrible record

about wind power. We all declare ourselves in favor of alternative energy, be it solar, wind or wave power. But when a farm of windmills all in a row sitting on the ocean floor was proposed off Jones Beach a few years ago, the citizenry sounded the alarm and opposition groups formed whose members quickly contacted their congressmen. Fish would accidentally bump into the underground legs of the windmills. Freighters would crash into them, founder, capsize and sink, sending hundreds of thousands or perhaps millions of, for example, naked Barbie Dolls bobbing onto our beaches. The windmill people slunk away. Still other proposals for ocean windmill farms that might have been in Long Island Sound or off Southampton were floated and sent up the flagpole to see if anyone would salute, but all of those were shot down. The real scandal, however, is that for more than 300 years, we have actually had windmills here in the Hamptons and, in spite of enormous sums of money spent, not a single one of them has ever provided even one single watt of power. All together we have 11 of them. We have the largest collection of wooden windmills in the United States right here in the Hamptons. We have one on Gardiner’s (Cont’d on next page)

Dan Rattiner’s third memoir, Still in the Hamptons is now online and at all bookstores. You can also buy the first two In the Hamptons and In the Hamptons, TOO. A fourth in the series will be published in the spring of 2015.

Windmill (Cont’d from previous page) Island, four in East Hampton, one in Amagansett, one in Bridgehampton, one in Southampton, one on Shelter Island, one in Wainscott, and one in Water Mill, all of them built between 1770 and 1830, a half-century span when the residents here, on the very leading edge of environmental awareness, did their best to make a situation where the energy they consumed equaled the energy produced. Their desire was to harness the wind and create no environmental damage whatsoever, instead of what they correctly felt was the wasteful consumption of consumables such as, over the years, whale blubber, kerosene, wood fires, coal, oil, shale and natural gas, which, as we know, pollute the planet. Granted, the windmill efforts made during that 60-year period (known today as the East End Spring—like the Arab Spring) were not very effective. But what could you expect? This was long before the invention of the telephone, the light bulb, the automobile, washing machine, airplane, hula-hoop or the internet. These early experimental efforts did leave us with a legacy, though. All these windmills still stand. It had been the hope, those early pioneers felt, that improvements in the efficiency of these windmills would one day bring a time when all energy problems would be solved with the engines of our wind power and the improvements made could be given away and duplicated elsewhere around the country. But that did not happen. Over the past 200 years, our governments—village, town, county, state and federal—have poured thousands of

Much of this money spent accomplishes nothing. dollars, even millions and billions and trillions of untold dollars, to restore, rebuild and improve these windmills so they can do the job. But it has all been just a complete waste of money. Two years ago, East Hampton Village spent nearly a $100,000 to get the Hook Mill on the Town Green to turn out power. Before that, tens of thousands of dollars were spent in Bridgehampton trying to get the Beebe Mill to produce power. But no. It was a complete waste of money. It’s a scandal. Who benefits from these clumsy and futile attempts to get these beautiful windmills operational? It’s been said that the tourists like to take pictures of them, sitting there still and inert and doing nothing, so that is good for the economy. But when more of these tourists come out to take these pictures, burning gasoline in their cars, oil and natural gas in their homes and coal in their office buildings, it just adds to the environmental pickle we find ourselves in today. Why have we not hired scientists and engineers to guide this work, to apply their inventiveness and new ideas to the task at hand? We haven’t done that. Instead, in every

case, we hire “restorers” who haven’t a clue on how to make these things work. All they know to do is how to get the windmills repaired to the way they were before when they didn’t work. What an utter waste of time and money. It might have been money well spent if these funds had been used to at least attempt to provide new experimental ways to harness the wind. I read in The New York Times recently that one scientific group somewhere in the country is sending up giant weather balloons with paddles on them, held fast to the ground with long ropes, so the wind can turn the paddle blades way up there to create the power. It’s time to put an end to this scandalous waste of taxpayers’ money here on the East End. I’m told that, as another poke in the eye, much of this money is spent to accomplish nothing more than to grind down an occasional husk of corn into flour so the workmen can sit around, snack and drink on their frequent coffee breaks, lunch hours and poker sessions while on the job. We’ve landed on the moon, built bridges across the Hudson River, gotten airplanes to fly 2,000 miles an hour, created iPhones and television and atomic bombs, and not one single kilowatt of energy in all this time from our windmills. It’s long past time to begin investigating the wasteful bureaucratic mess that has spawned this two-century-long boondoggle and put an end to it once and for all. Remember, you read it first in Dan’s Papers.

Astounding Science What Your Cell Phone Tells You About Where You Are Will Surprise You


t started innocently enough. We were sitting at breakfast, my wife and I and my wife’s sister Stephanie, and I was telling them of my idea for a Saturday Night Live sketch that would involve two men in glass booths. “Years ago there was a TV show called The $64,000 Question,” I said. “Two men were sitting at tables inside separate glass booths. A narrator would ask some obscure question, such as ‘Who had the highest batting average in the American League in 1937?’ and the men would rack their brains to come up with an answer while a band played music, with a clock ticking to show time passing and suspense. “Finally one man, nervous and sweating, would ring a bell, and everyone would turn to him for the answer. He’d speak the answer through a microphone to a speaker outside the booth, because the booth was soundproof glass so nobody could give him the answer—and the audience, hearing his answer, would either cheer or groan. “My idea is to have one of the men a genius and the other a regular guy with a cellphone. It would be Google against the Brain. Who could get there first. Like this.”

I took out my cellphone and went to Google and began typing in. “Just ask Siri,” Stef said. “That would be even faster.” She took out her cellphone and asked. “I’m sorry, my knowledge of sports is fairly limited,” Siri told Stef. “But wait,” Stef said. “It’s looked up stuff on Google. Here it is, printed out. Beat you. The man with the highest batting average in the American league in 1937 was Charlie Gehringer, who batted .371. And he had a lifetime average of .320” “I’ve never heard of him,” I said. “How many years did he play?” my wife asked. “From 1924 to 1942,” Stef said. “That’s a long time,” I said. “And with that batting average, you’d think we’d know of him.” “Ask Siri something else,” my wife said. “Ask Siri where you live,” Stef said, looking at me and my cellphone. Of course, we were sitting where we live. I held down the button on my phone and asked Siri. “You have two addresses,” Siri said. “Choose one.” Both addresses were for this house in East Hampton, but there was a slight difference

One address had that all spelled out. The other had it Three Mile Harbor HC Road, a way of writing it that still works but is shorter so it fits better on some computer forms.

We turned and looked out the window to the northwest, which is where we would head to make it 40 feet to the throbbing blue dot. There was a tree by the side of the road; 60 feet was across the street where there was a sign reading GARDINER’S MARINA.

We stared out to the marina and the boats and the water beyond. It was a dicey moment. And what came to my mind was the “Who’s on First” routine Abbott and Costello did about baseball. Abbott: Strange as it may seem, they give ball players nowadays very peculiar names. Costello: Funny names? Abbott: Nicknames, nicknames. Now, on the St. Louis team we have Who’s on first, What’s on second, I Don’t Know is on third— Costello: That’s what I want to find out. I want you to tell me the names of the fellows on the St. Louis team. Abbott: I’m telling you. Who’s on first, What’s on second, I Don’t Know is on third— Costello: You know the fellows’ names? Abbott: Yes. Costello: Well, then who’s playing first? Abbott: Yes. Costello: I mean the fellow’s name on first base. Abbott: Who. Costello: The fellow playin’ first base. Abbott: Who. Costello: The guy on first base. Abbott: Who is on first. Costello: Well, what are you askin’ me for? Abbott: I’m not asking you—I’m telling you. Who is on first. Costello: I’m asking you—who’s on first? Abbott: That’s the man’s name. Costello: That’s who’s name? Abbott: Yes. *** Costello: When you pay off the first baseman every month, who gets the money? Abbott: Every dollar of it. And why not, the man’s entitled to it. Costello: Who is? Abbott: Yes. Costello: So who gets it? Abbott: Why shouldn’t he? Sometimes his wife comes down and collects it. Costello: Who’s wife? Abbott: Yes. After all, the man earns it. And then it goes on for four more minutes. The routine was first done in 1937. You could look it up.

Noisy Rockefellers Those Who Say They Are a Rockefeller Here Are Viewed with Suspicion By Dan Rattiner


everal members of the wealthy Rockefeller family live in the Hamptons. But they tend to keep a low profile. You never hear about them in the news or at fundraisers. I don’t know what it is about the Rockefellers. Or maybe I do. In all the years I have been here, the only Rockefellers who come to the Hamptons that make headlines turn out to be fake Rockefellers. Perhaps the most famous of them was a man claiming to be Christopher Rockefeller, a man with a French accent and an entourage who came out to the Hamptons in the summer of 2000 claiming to be a member of the London branch of that family. He famously persuaded about a half-dozen people out here to give him money—usually about $50,000 or more—in exchange for which, he said, he would turn that money into $200,000, because the Rockefellers in London knew all the good investments to make and they surely told him about them. While he was here, which was for about three weeks, he conned a down-on-his-luck stockbroker, a Dutch woman working as a masseuse, and several others into giving him close to a quarter-million dollars. I recall the stockbroker, who I will not name, telling me that the Mr. Rockefeller he befriended had asked him to play some tennis with him

one morning at the Maidstone Club in East Hampton. When morning came, Rockefeller’s assistant called to tell him all the courts were booked that day, but they could play tennis at the public courts in Reutershan Park in the center of town, which they did. It was only when this Rockefeller and his entourage skipped out without paying at the Pink House Bed & Breakfast and another establishment that police arrested him. He was charged with false impersonation and theft of services and released on $45,000 bail, and off he went. He was only finally arrested for good, at a Vancouver hotel, when he tried to bilk an elderly couple. His real name was Christophe Rocancourt, he was a French citizen, and he’d been bilking people all over the place. He was sentenced to two years in jail in Canada, where he wrote a book called I, Christopher Rocancourt, Orphan, Playboy, Prisoner about his exploits. He later wrote another book, Christopher Rocancourt: My Lives, while serving a four-year prison term in the U.S. Now a new book has come out about the exploits of another fake Rockefeller. This man, a German citizen as it turns out, had been pretending to be Clark Rockefeller, also with the London branch of the Rockefeller family. His connection to the Hamptons is through his success in New York City. In the early 1990s, he worked as a vice president for Nikko

Now a new book has come out about the exploits of another fake Rockefeller. Clark Rockefeller, also with the London branch of the family. Securities and, briefly, in the international bond division of Kidder, Peabody. In 1995, he married Sandra Boss, a high-powered financial executive. She had worked in the debt marketing division of Merrill Lynch and at Trammell Crow. During much of their 12-year marriage, she was a partner in McKinsey & Co., management consultants, and did a study for Michael Bloomberg and Senator Schumer about the competitiveness of New York City with London. In any case, they had a daughter they named Reigh, and when Boss filed for divorce, Clark Rockefeller kidnapped the daughter. She was 7 years old at the time. This was in 2008. Clark Rockefeller was seen with Reigh in Grand Central Station about seven hours after the kidnapping; a friend claimed she’d been asked by Rockefeller to give them a ride to New York City from Boston so he could visit his newly purchased ship Serenity. Almost immediately, any ship with the registered name Serenity was looked into by the Coast Guard, including one in Sag Harbor that sat anchored (Continued on page 44) just outside the jetties.

Here Comes Dan’s Taste of Summer By wallace figg


aise a glass, grab a fork…or two! The ultimate food-and-wine events of the year are back—Dan’s Grillhampton presented by Pat LaFrieda will take place on Friday, July 11, and Dan’s Taste of Two Forks presented by Farrell Building Company returns on Saturday, July 12. Now entering its fourth year as the leading foodie festival of the Hamptons summer season, the weekend at Sayre Park in Bridgehampton will again celebrate the best of the East End’s bounty—from top restaurants to leading wineries, breweries, purveyors and more—all served up under a new name: Dan’s Taste of Summer. “The phase itself excites me,” says Nick & Toni’s Executive Chef Joseph Realmuto, who has participated in each Taste of Two Forks since its inception in 2011. The very words conjure images of local culinary wonders soon to come. “The first thing that pops into mind is the great products like heirloom tomatoes, corn, lettuces and, of course, the great seafood. We are surrounded by some of the best farms— like Balsam, Quail Hill, Amber Waves Farm— who have the most unbelievable vegetables, besides being able to grow our own right behind Nick & Toni’s. “Also the freshness of the fish that hits the back door is the best quality one could ask for, and now we have Dock to Dish, which has opened the doors to availability and freshness,” he adds. “What more could a chef ask for, and

the Taste of Two Forks gives us the opportunity to showcase some of these great ingredients.” Grillhampton takes the concept of culinary showcase to another level as it once again pits eight New York City chefs against eight counterparts from the East End in a combination of heated cooking competition and tasting event. With a panel of food-savvy

judges and Grillhampton guests themselves casting votes last July for their favorite dishes of the night, Team Hampton reigned supreme overall, Rumba Rum Bar’s David Hersh took home the People’s Choice honors, and New York City’s Elizabeth Karmel of Hill Country Barbecue won Judges Pick. Hersh and Karmel will be back to defend their titles, but they’ll be facing a hungry lineup of new chefs and those returning from the first battle. “Revenge is sweet,” says Billy Oliva, Executive Chef of Delmonico’s of Southampton. He will be coming back with victory on his mind, but also a sense of anticipation shared by the guests who look forward to seeing chefs from acclaimed restaurants up-close and personal. “[A] great part of these events is getting to see our returning customers and interact with them in fun and unique settings,” Oliva says. This year’s esteemed panel of Grillhampton judges includes celebrity chef Marc Murphy of the newly opened Kingside, Landmarc and Ditch Plains, and a regular judge on Food Network’s Chopped. Also look for Dan’s Papers’ own Dan Rattiner, plus more judge announcements to come. And the host of the epic grilling battle will be Robert Irvine, star of Food Network’s Restaurant Impossible, who’s known for inspiring chefs to bring out the very best in themselves. Taste of Two Forks has always been known for its A-list hosts—Marcus Samuelsson in 2011, Jean-Georges Vongerichten in 2012 and Bobby Flay last summer—and this year

This Week’s Cover Artist: Janet Fish By MARION WOLBERG-WEISS

Consider the following objects: yellow plates, red flowers, green pear. Sounds luscious and visually attractive, doesn’t it? Yet when positioned in a Janet Fish still life, the same items become something more. This observation is obvious when we look at this week’s cover of Fish’s work, called “Provence.” The composition and light evoke descriptions like “lush,” “spontaneous” and “spritely.” No doubt

about it, there’s nothing “still” about Fish’s still life. However, the idea of “life” is very much present. The painting’s translucent quality provides a window into the content of the containers. It’s as if the bowl, for example, is a symbol for the body; the fruit itself may represent the soul. And although the glass objects may be fragile, their contents are substantive. Not all of Fish’s still lifes are structured similarly. Some have no translucent elements, like her painting with a bag of oranges and a bowl of chips. But we can’t help notice that the net covering the oranges allows us to see the fruit clearly. Another work, a box of peaches half- covered with plastic wrap, also shows us

the peaches inside. The “soul” is always visible in Fish’s world. Do you have a meaning or theme in mind when you paint? I don’t have a meaning in mind; I don’t plan what I’ll paint in advance. I don’t deal with subject matter. Different objects have their own meaning. It’s the context and relationship between the objects that count. Since you don’t have a theme in mind, you’re saying the meaning is organic. But do you ever add and subtract things in the process? I may start out with some objects, and I may realize I have the wrong thing in the right-hand corner, so I change it. How would you summarize your process? I am flexible. What I set up to do in the beginning is not what it is in the end. Your cover image was inspired by your trip to Provence about 10 years ago, but when you were there you didn’t think about what you might paint. I gave up seeing every painting in a museum when my husband and I travel. I’m just relaxing. I’m on vacation. I don’t do art. On that vacation to Provence, what did you experience? We went to the Niaux Caves, where there were drawings of animals and footprints made by children. Another particular memory was watching this ritual where gypsies put a statue of the Black Mary into the Mediterranean. It was probably left over from primitive times. When you’re not traveling, you are in Vermont, where you live part of the year, and New York, where you also live. Does Vermont play a part in your art? When you’re in a place, you do what’s entertaining, so we go for drives, stopping off at antique shops, lawn sales and auctions to find things. Where do you get other objects? From friends. I also have some things from my family, old family photographs, although I probably have them for the frames. Was your family involved in the arts? Yes. My grandfather was a painter; my mother was a sculptor. I imagine they encouraged you? They wanted me to get married to a rich man. As an artist, you worked on your own with no real encouragement? What did you learn? Being an artist is a lot of hard work. Is it as hard now, after you’ve been painting for a long time? It’s still hard, but it’s my life. That’s what I do.

Trivial Updates from the Isle of Shelter By sally flynn

Recently I was playing Trivial Pursuit with my family. I love this game because I have a head full of useless information that never sees the light of day unless someone has a sudden urge to ask what the names of Julius Caesar’s three wives were (Calpurnia, Octavia, Cleopatra), or some other critical tidbit of information. So there we were playing Trivial Pursuit, the original game from 1981. The questions got funnier and funnier because the world has changed so much since then. Nobody remembers the SALT talks or the policy of détente, or the enormity of the Soviet Union and the certainty we all had that one day they would start World War III. The last toy fad was the Garbage Patch, I mean Cabbage Patch Kids. And probably no current members of the Yankees team had been born yet. I realize there have been updated editions of the game put out since 1981, so I only hope they covered some questions I think were missing...

I drove behind “officially retired,” she told me with a giggle. that I was up to making the trek to Riverhead the Riverhead Middle School and parked on a No one cared that I was a little late or that I managed to get lost inside the building or that I’m a novice gardener. It was all smiles and supportive mottos for everyone who showed up. My first teacher of the day, Sherry Thomas, pointed out, “We support all kinds of good behavior.” The CCE teaches master gardener classes each fall, and the graduates volunteer to teach us hopefuls every spring. There’s such a striking camaraderie among these gardeners, such a glowing fraternity, it’s infectious. I’ll write about the classes that I took—Layered Gardening, Organic Vegetable Gardening and Growing Berries—in another column. They were all terrific! I had such a wonderful day, I wanted to give something back. I decided I’d definitely write about this year’s event and I started to look for a way to also make a monetary donation. After the classes there’s a big, free drawing of donated goods from retailers across the Island, held in the cafeteria. This year, there was also to be a drawing for some higher priced items. I stepped up to Robin Simmen, CCE’s new Community Horticulture Specialist and bought six tickets. They drew for the big prizes first, and “543812” was announced on the mic. The number on the second ticket in my strip. Hmmm. If I just sat there, the friendly lady across the table might spot my winning ticket. If I hid it, we might be there for a long time, waiting for the winner to announce herself. So I reluctantly stood up and daintily waved my winning ticket at Simmen. The room went wild. As I said, it’s a very supportive crowd. Simmen asked over the mic, “Wheelbarrow or hoophouse?” The black, shining wheelbarrow was there between us, I didn’t think it would fit into my Toyota and, anyway, I already have a wheelbarrow at home, so I shouted “Hoophouse!

schoolers” must accept all the new technology and not weep over the loss of vent windows, fat white-wall tires, three-on-the-tree stick shifts, plus the now defunct Pontiacs and Oldsmobiles. This article will enlighten you to some truly amazing new and useless stuff that is appearing in our new cars. The future is here. Mercedes-Benz, the people who actually invented the automobile, have outdone themselves with their new S Class Panzer tank of a car. This model Mercedes has always been the Hamptons’ “Volkswagen,” or peoples’ car, a world leader in chic engineering.


If you didn’t run out and buy a four-wheel drive vehicle this winter, you are my hero, because this was a test for all of us oldschool drivers who grew up in a world without fourwheel drive. We are the tough ones who knew how to rock a car through the gears to get out of a snowbank. We are the experts in heating a car key with a match so it would slide into a frozen car’s door lock. That was then, and this is now, so we “old

However, this new S Class machine has actually angered the COA (Chauffeurs of America Union), because the thing almost drives itself. There are more video cameras and sonar sensors mounted on this cars bodywork than in Studio B at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. When you back this baby up, the onboard video screen gives you an overhead live video shot of where you are heading. Truly amazing. Steven Spielberg should own this car. It creates special effects as you drive. The steering wheel will actually tug in your hands if it senses you are doing something wrong. The side mirrors will flash yellow and red triangles that warn of impending side danger. The breaking system will stop the car all by itself if you are about to have a collision. While all this is going on, the front seat will give you a back massage and the rear seat will turn into an actual home recliner. Don’t think you can take a nap while driving this technical wonder. This bad boy Benz actually senses if you are getting drowsy and awakens you. There’s a lot more, but this is a short article and I refuse to go into detail about the perfume the new Mercedes S Class will spray in the cabin on command. Really! A new Mini is out. But hold on, the Mini is getting bigger. Maybe BMW, the makers of the Mini, don’t get it. People like the Mini because it’s, well, er, mini, as compared to the average car. It seems some buyers have complained that the Mini is too small, which is absolutely absurd. After all, why did they think it was called a Mini? Why did they buy the thing in the first place? A big part of the appeal of the original 1959 Austin Mini, which was considerably smaller than the new BMW Mini, was its diminutive size and its very clever packaging. Small is cute, small is smart in today’s green world, and small is very European. The original Mini had one of the longest production runs of any car ever made, and in 30 years never grew an inch. Like the Porsche 911, people loved the shape. BMW, you have a great little car. Learn from the past and keep your hands off its size. By the way, check out the new 1500cc thre-cylinder turbo motor in the new base Mini. It’s hot, very au courant and a bargain. There’s an overabundance of technology being put into automobiles today. Some good, some bad, some that save lives and some that are actually dangerous. Of course, all of this razzmatazz comes at a price. More details in my next article.

This Place Is Going to the Dogs, Tech-Wise This week, a truly momentous occasion took place in my home: We adopted a dog. It wasn’t really much of a decision. After three solid years of lame excuses, mealy mouthed promises and outright lies, my kids finally called bulls**t and demanded action. And when Sammy came over from the shelter—23 pounds of Shiba, Chihuahua, Terrier, and God knows what else— it only took about 6 minutes to fill out the adoption papers. Then we realized that we had absolutely no idea what came next. After a quick run to Petco, we had the basics in hand. Naturally, I decided to go deeper. I wanted see what kind of gadgets and electronics were out there for our little guy. It wasn’t hard to find some cool ones.



Petsie Dog Breeds (Android only) It only took a few trips to the park to realize that dog owners are a Pet Phone breed unto themselves. (Cat people This is a rather limited app that must be off the charts. Then again, lets you track your pet’s health they never leave their homes, so we’ll and medical information, such as never know.) medications and upcoming vet Anyway, everyone we see always appointments. has lots of questions about your dog. It’s one of those apps that How old? What breed? Where does is really just a template that he workout? What does he eat? collects and displays information Petsie is a great informational app you could easily write down I smell fresh technology! to help you learn more about all the yourself. At $2.99, you’re better off dogs in your ever-expanding circle. spending the money on a new chewable You search breeds by name or by photo, and toy. reveal tons of information about each one. Sammy as he sleeps comfily in his little dog bed.


Tagg, You’re It The first gadget for your dog (and any pet, really) is an identification microchip. Sammy already had one. It’s like a Lo-Jack for your pet. The chip is surgically embedded inside his body with a unique code that will let us find him if he ever disappears or is stolen. If you don’t want to put your hound through this process, Tagg is a simple option to consider. It’s a GPS unit that attaches to your pet’s collar and gives real-time information about her location. You can even set distance limits and the system will send an alert if your pet strays too far from home. Neat. Tagg isn’t cheap. The tracker costs $99 plus $8 a month for the service. But the free smartphone app is simple to use and better than the clunky interface for the microchip. I’m not even sure the microchip can actually track Sammy—it’s just a system that lets someone scan and learn his identity later on. The downside: Tagg’s GPS unit isn’t embedded inside the dog’s body. It’s on the collar, which means there’s always a chance it can fall off or be removed by a dog-napper. Still, both options are way more sophisticated than the traditional collar with ID tag. If you’re even thinking about getting a dog, this is a must-have item. Yes, iCam One of the scariest things about a new dog is leaving him home alone. You never know how the little guy will behave—and you dread coming home to find that he’s eaten the kitchen table or done his business all over the mohair couch. iCam is a great inexpensive alternative. It lets you build a network of basic cameras you probably already have—such as your laptop or PC webcam—and view them remotely through your smartphone. The app costs $4.99 to get started, with in-app upgrades such as additional video storage, multi-camera view and more. Remember, you might also need to purchase web cams and set them up around the house. But for me, a simple laptop in the kitchen gives a birds-eye view of

Told what had happened by cell phone from someone in an adjacent boat, she said she was really glad she wasn’t on board at the time. In any case, Rockefeller was soon arrested and charged with kidnapping and assault. At trial it turned out he had been using a variety of names other than Clark Rockefeller, that his real name was Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, and he was the 48-year-old son of a Bavarian house painter.

was declared invalid not because he was not who he said he was, but because it took place as a Quaker ceremony and papers were never properly filed. Sandra Boss moved with her daughter to London and became CEO of McKinsey, and is there today. And then, after all this, Clark Rockefeller, while serving a fiveyear sentence in a Massachusetts prison for his misdeeds, was charged by California authorities with a cold-case 1985 murder they believed he committed while pretending to be a man of royal lineage named Chris Chichester. He was convicted and is now serving a 27-years-to-life sentence. (He allegedly cut his victim into three pieces and buried him in plastic bags in the yard behind the house he was renting. He drove off in his victim’s pickup, which investigators later discovered. There was the victim’s blood in his house, it was reported. The body was discovered nine years later, when the homeowner was excavating for a swimming pool. A book bag from a college the accused attended was found with body remains inside.) Now a new book has come out called Blood Will Out: The True Story of a Murder, a Mystery, and a Masquerade, which is a memoir by a prominent novelist named Walter Kirn (he wrote Up in the Air.) Kirn met Clark Rockefeller when Rockefeller called Kirn at his ranch in Montana to say he was interested in adopting a dog that Kirn had put up for adoption. Kirn’s wife was a supporter of the local humane society. Rockefeller sounded so interesting over the phone—this was when he was working on Wall Street—that Kirn decided to drive the dog from Montana to New York to bring it to him. “He told me he didn’t drive and his wife was abroad in his private plane, shopping,” Kirn told Terry Gross on NPR in March. So Kirn did that, and became Rockefeller’s friend, fascinated with knowing a Rockefeller, right through to his murder trial, when he sat in the courtroom watching, hoping to catch Gerhartsreiter’s eye. All fascinating stuff. There have been other attempts at being a Rockefeller out here. A woman named Adela Holzer, who had successfully produced several Broadway shows, including Hair, told people in East Hampton she was secretly married to David Rockefeller, as she attempted to arrange bogus investments from the local summer citizenry. She pleaded guilty to defrauding people of $400,000. And in 1984 there was a woman passing herself off as the daughter of Governor Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia; she was arrested after allegedly charging thousands of dollars on expensive hotel suites, bodyguards and a new car. What is it about pretending to be a Rockefeller? A Robert S. Feldman (not a Rockefeller), who is Dean of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Massachusetts, told this to ABC News: “They may be treated far better than they normally would be, may be unhappy with their own lives, or simply like duping other people. Obviously there’s also a potential gain—they can get access to people, to parties, to events that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to go to….” Keep your heads down, you Rockefellers.

Suffolk Becomes Nation’s First County Iconic Southampton Schneiderman Bill Boathouse to Rise Would Mandate Gas to Raise Smoking Age to 21 Again Pumps Disclose Credit SUFFOLK COUNTY: Suffolk County Executive SOUTHAMPTON: It seemed Card Upcharge Steve Bellone signed legislation into law Monday that raises the purchasing age for tobacco to 21 effective next year, a move that was backed by 10 out of 10 county legislators, including Jay Schneiderman of Montauk. Suffolk County’s smoking age is currently 19. Onondaga and Nassau counties also raised their smoking age to 19, as have the states of Alabama, Alaska, New Jersey and Utah. New York City raised the age to 21 as of April 1, 2014. The law, which becomes effective January 15, 2015, applies to cigarettes, chewing tobacco and other tobacco products as well as e-cigarettes.

Voters Approve Proposition of Funding for Parrish

T. Guiomar

SUFFOLK COUNTY: Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman has introduced legislation to require gas stations to alert customers at the terminal of how much more they will pay per gallon by using a credit or debit card and give the option to cancel the transaction. According to Schneiderman’s office, the legislator witnessed gas stations charging nearly $1 extra per gallon for the use of a credit card rather than cash, and he was shocked. “Typically a driver will see the large sign in front of the gas station advertising the price and think that is what they will pay at the pump or something close to it if they use a credit card,” Schneiderman said in a statement. “However, there are several stations where the price difference is substantial and the consumer gets tricked into paying $20 or more simply because they used a credit card.” The bill called for gas terminals to display, “You will pay _________ more per gallon for this credit/debit card purchase than if you paid cash. Press yes to proceed with this transaction or no to cancel.” Schneiderman’s office said there is no legal authority to control the pricing, but something can be done to make sure customers are fully aware of the difference. “Consumers using their debit or credit cards should receive proper notification from retailers of the price difference of a gallon of gas between cash and credit purchases before they consent to that transaction,” the legislator said. “A hardworking resident shouldn’t be caught off guard filling up their gas tank, that’s highway robbery.” If the bill becomes law, gas stations will have six months to make the changes to the automated pumps. After six months, any operator who violates this law would be subject to a penalty of up to $1,000.

WATER MILL: On April 9, registered voters in the Southampton School District approved a proposition to appropriate funds that help support the Parrish Art Museum’s educational programs and exhibitions. The amount approved—$326,509—is the same amount the museum has requested since 2009, and accounts for 7% of the museum’s entire annual operating budget. This year, 178 votes were cast, with 57% voting Yes and 43% voting No. The final numbers reported by the Board of Elections, including absentee ballots, were: 101 Yes; 77 No. This is the first year that the vote was held at the museum, and that the proposition was separated from the school budget vote. Following the examples of museums and libraries on the East End of Long Island and across New York state, the Parrish chose to move the vote to the museum to enable voters to experience the institution first hand, and to make clear that the proposition is not connected with the school budget. For 42 years, voters of the Southampton School District have approved the requested funding for the Parrish Art Museum. While the amount of the appropriation has remained the same for six years, the museum’s new home in Water Mill has allowed it to expand the breadth and depth of its programs for the community.

untouchable. The iconic, beautifully abandoned boathouse in Southampton that was once the subject of many an artist’s eye was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy in 2012, but plans are in the works for it to rise again. Owners Joe and Diana DiMenna presented plans to rebuild the boathouse to the Southampton Town Trustees this week, though no formal application has been filed yet. The owners appeared before the trustees to get feedback. “[Trustee] Ed Warner liked the idea,” confirmed President Eric Schultz in a phone interview, noting that no other member has weighed in on the project yet. The longtime icon on Meadow Lane in Southampton, just west of Coopers Beach and its destruction was one of the most tangible effects of Sandy on the East End. If the process proceeds, the boathouse will be rebuilt to mimic the design and feel of the original, though all new material will be used. The DiMennas hope to use it to store small boats.

Nighttime Closure of LIE Begins BROOKHAVEN: Those hoping to pull a fast one on Hamptons traffic by heading east in the wee hours of the morning may be in for some congestion. As of this past weekend, the eastbound LIE lanes between Exit 66 (Sills Road) and Exit 68 (William Floyd Parkway) will be closed Sunday through Thursday nights between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. This nighttime LIE closure will be in effect in the eastbound direction for about two-and-a-half months. Once the eastbound work is complete, the LIE will be closed in the westbound direction. All traffic will be diverted to the LIE service roads. The nighttime LIE closure is needed to perform concrete pavement repairs.

Ribbon, Beard to Be Cut at Opening Saturday


t hasn’t quite hit Matt and Lauri Spitz of the East End’s newest craft brewery, Moustache Brewing Co., that their dreams have finally come true. The couple, who recently moved to Riverhead from East Islip, have been sapped of energy through a grueling year-long process to get their Polish Town brewery and tasting room up and running. “I’m exhausted,” Matt says while surrounded by family, friends and other Moustache supporters at the brewery’s soft opening on Sunday. “I’m still running on adrenaline.” Lauri says she and her husband often spent nights falling asleep together on the brewery floor after mind-numbing hours of installing equipment, filing paperwork and helping contractors. “We would be here working until 3 a.m. and we had an aerobed that we would put in the tasting room,” Lauri recalls. “We woke up feeling sick every morning, but who wants to drive home, an hour [away] at 3 a.m.?” The do-it-yourselfers raised more than $30,000 to open the brewery through a successful Kickstarter campaign, but Lauri says the final cost has far exceeded those funds. “I could have bought a house in North Carolina and paid cash,” she says of the money dumped into the project. “But we have a brewery and that’s kind of cooler.” It’s been a long time coming for the Moustache Brewing Co., according to Lauri’s sister, Kim Corbett, who tended bar at the soft opening and rang up retail

After their first album “Crazy Rhythms,” the drummer and bassist left and new members Brenda Sauter and Stanley Demeski joined. By the time their next album came out, The Good Earth, in 1985, there was a softer feel. “A change like [two new members] has an impact,” says Mercer. “Brenda isn’t as aggressive on the bass, and Stan has a different feel on the drums. The songwriting changed as well.” But the changes in the group tended to come naturally. “It’s been a gradual evolving,” says Mercer. With about 20 years between the third and fourth albums, there was plenty of time for the members to grow. And at first, Mercer wasn’t thinking about getting back together. It just felt like it was time to pursue their music separately, that The Feelies were one step on a much longer personal journey for each of them. “For a few years before we reformed,” Mercer recalls, “there was a lot of indication that there was interest in the band. Requests for licensing, requests to reissue the albums, a lot of internet activity.” Other bands, notably REM, also cited The Feelies as influences in their own work. That got them thinking about getting back together. Then, when Sonic Youth asked them to play a reunion show with them in Battery Park for the Fourth of July in 2008, they decided it was time. “It felt great to be back,” says Mercer. “It was familiar.” Immediately, they decided if they were going to play together again, they’d produce a new album. “It was a top priority for us to cut a new record,” says Mercer. “We only got together infrequently, so we did a lot of work on our own to make optimum use of our time.” The fact that much of their work was done independently in the comforts of their own homes has an influence on the sound of their most recent album, Here Again (2011). “It’s the same people playing,” says Mercer, “and our approach is pretty much the same. What’s different is we don’t get to play together as much as we want to, so we do more work with demos than previously, so we’d have something to work off of.” At their shows, The Feelies try to let the set list run the gamut from early work to brand new stuff. They sometimes do covers, as well as material from all of their albums. “We’ve been doing two sets, playing for close to three hours,” says Mercer. “We’ll cover a lot of ground.” The Feelies will play at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center at 76 Main Street in Westhampton Beach on Saturday, April 26 at 8 p.m. For tickets call the box office at 631-288-1500 or go to

April Showers Bring May…Sweeps May Sweeps is around the corner, but April has already been a busy month in the entertainment world too. The beloved, long-running sitcom How I Met Your Mother—in which the last season took place in fictional Farhampton, New York—aired its series finale on March 31 to divided opinion. April Fools Day got serious when diehard fans of the series cried foul that the titular mother (aka Tracy) was used as a stepping stone for main characters Ted and Robin to finally get together, but others (like myself) found it to be a touching, smart ending to a story that was clearly planned from the very beginning. Now, who’s hoping for a Farhampton spin-off? Captain America: The Winter Soldier opened in theaters on April 4 to enthusiastic reviews. Special kudos to Hamptonite Scarlett Johansson, who had a pivotal and substantial role in her third appearance as Natasha Romanoff (aka Black Widow). While the Black Widow didn’t make much of an impression in the cluttered and unfocused Iron Man 2, Johansson came into her own in The Avengers, where we learned more about the beautiful, enigmatic assassin. The Avengers director, Joss Whedon, has said that the Black Widow is slated to have an even bigger role in the 2015 sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Elizabeth Olsen, a frequent Montauk visitor who appeared in the HIFF 2013 opener Kill Your Darlings, will debut in Age of Ultron as the powerful, but unstable Scarlet Witch. There’s been no word on Hamptonite Gwyneth



Paltrow reprising her role as Pepper Potts in the upcoming blockbuster, but considering her character’s popularity and that she appeared in the first film, we wouldn’t be surprised to see her at least make a cameo. Speaking of Paltrow, much ado has been made about the star’s recent split with husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. In a blog post titled “Conscious Uncoupling” on her website, Paltrow made a broad statement about the difficulties she and Martin have had in their relationship and said that being good parents is their first priority. Paltrow’s use of the term “conscious uncoupling,” which she expands upon in a posted article by Dr. Habib Sadeghi and Dr. Sherry Sami, has drawn some criticism from users of social networks like Twitter. The actress has also come under fire for Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Jimmy Fallon! recent comments about parenting. On E!

Dispelling Those Cabin Fever Blues By Joan baum

If there are beach books, why not reads to dispel cabinfever winter blues? Dennis Hart’s zany murder farce Gulf Boulevard (The Permanent Press) would certainly qualify. It’s a hoot, laugh-outloud funny in spots, if slightly flawed, but the epigraphs alone are worth the price of entry. The prologue is from Einstein: “Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.” Each chapter then has its own quotation, which relates (with a stretch) to the content.

Up Coming EvEnts may 3rd, 2014 3-6pm: Local artist gayle tudisco paints a Hamptons Landscape live!  may 10th 2014 3-6pm: Bring Your Dog to Chrysalis Day! Have your dog painted into an artwork by Carol saxe with no commission charge.

Hart’s oddball adventure romp follows a loony, likeable narrator, 28-year-old Jason Najarian (a name not easy to remember or pronounce correctly and a gag that goes on a bit too long), as he comes upon some incredible good luck. But not before a prologue sets the stage for the action: a last-minute contract assigned to big Salvatore “Sally” Scalise, a Mafia hit man in Providence, RI, who carries it out. Only he hits the wrong guy, and a buddy advises that Sally get his ass outta town immediately. Switch to Jason. An accountant in freezing-cold Boston, Jason is totally bored with his dopey job at a rope manufacturing company, and deep into fantasies of Southern warmth and desert-island solitude (prompted in large part by his ditzy ex-wife Megan whom he never should have married). He notices one morning in a scoop of his favorite M & Ms that he has come up with eight buttons, all green. How odd is that! Taking this miraculous event as a portent, he goes to his favorite deli for lunch and decides to fill out a lottery ticket. And would you believe! He hits the jackpot which is $63 million, though even he can’t believe it—he constantly invokes the spectre of PMS— Pessimistic Magnet Syndrome, “whereby I attract all thoughts negative.” But he has indeed won and takes what’s left after taxes, in cash. A good heart, he donates to charity and buys his (divorced) parents houses of their own. And then, with the help of a short, sarcastic real estate agent, Phyllis Hammerstein, aka The Hammer, he soon finds

himself “the proud owner of a $1.2 million home on a barrier island off the west coast of Florida— “situated in a hurricane zone, with a tide of oil-polluted water drifting somewhere offshore.” And he buys himself a gorgeous powerboat which he names Ticket to Ride. In a predictable but satisfying (because of the predictability) bit of plotting, Hart delays bringing Jason and Sal together 2,000 miles from their native ground, but the reader knows it’s coming. Just as inevitably, the reader also knows that Jason will hardly be alone, though he’s determined to share Hermitville only with Harry the Heron and Montana, a talking African Grey Parrot. Montana used to belong to Mafiosi who taught it almost the entire script of Scarface, and the sounds of an M-16 assault rifle. Whadda mouth on that bird. Jason loves his house, his beach—he rakes the sand!—and the creatures he sees there, even the “geico,” he tells The Hammer. “It’s ‘gecko,’ Mr. Najarian. When we get back to my office, I’ll give you a coloring book so you can learn the names and color all the wildlife you’ve seen.” It’s obvious to his new neighbors that Jason has money, though only his relatives and annoying ex-wife, who tries to insinuate herself back into his life, know its source. The one exception he would make to his desire for solitude is Fiona Tallahassee, aka Running Bush (!), a gorgeous young woman who drifts in (and out of) his new life. She identifies herself as a Native American on a tribal mission, but she hangs out with a 400-lb. “free-farting, tough-guy, possible Mafia-guy-type music producer,” Sal. And Sal hangs out with a “sappy, obnoxious, French greeting-card writer.” A motley cast of secondary characters in various stages of absurdity, they all round out the lunatic fringe around Jason, who’s not that rationally cautious anyway. They ensure that suspense will always be suspended to accommodate antic behavior and smart-ass dialogue, and that Jason (and Harry and Montana) will go on (to another book).

The Man Who Should Have Been Famous


ompared to the frenetic energy and abstract composition of works by Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock, the scene of a New York City ribbon factory is quiet and still. The artist, Frank Anthony Bologna, doesn’t use black pigment. “It muddies the other colors,” he says. Instead he relies on a brush dipped in raw umber to sketch the outline of what he will paint. Then he covers the canvas with a thin layer of the raw umber and begins to lay in the other colors, the grays and greens and reds and smoky blues. A stack of boxes fills one corner of the 5’ x 5’ canvas. He remembers Elaine de Kooning standing in front of the painting and saying to herself, “Wow, he must’ve had a lot of fun with this one.” “As a matter of fact I did. It took maybe eight or twelve hours to paint that. Those boxes, the paint quality is incredible. Thick.” Despite the earth tones, the empty, melancholic quality of the painting, there’s visible movement in the brushstrokes, making the scene of a doorway, a conveyor belt and the cardboard crates come alive.

I thought of an answer. He pauses for effect. “Art is everything... art is nothing.” I know the artist not as “Frank” or “Mr. Bologna” or “Francesco” or “Franco”—“Francesco sells more paintings, Franco sells more sandwiches,” he tells me with a wink—but as “Inky.” Many times I’ve found

myself sitting on his couch becoming lost in the painting of the ribbon factory. Inky was born in 1927 to Sicilian immigrants. He grew up in Corona, Queens. When he was seven he says, “I was playing on the street and this man—Willy Mazinka— walks up to me and points and says, ‘Inky! That’s what they should call you. Inky!’ I ran into him years later and he says, ‘Inky!’ and I says, ‘Willy Mazinka! How the hell are you?’” Inky started painting with oils when he was twelve. After leaving the army in the early ’50s, he enrolled in the Academy of Fine Art in Rome on the GI Bill. But he fell in love with and married Barbara Landi and, instead of going to Rome, he took classes at A New York ribbon factory painted by Frank Bologna the Art Students League in New York City. In 1969, he and his wife moved to Springs and Barbara promotion difficult. Though Inky says that “as fast became a popular teacher at East Hampton High as I could paint ’em I sold ’em,” and despite showing School for many years while Inky started a framing in Milan and Lucca, Italy and in numerous galleries shop on Newtown Lane and then opened the Bologna spanning Long Island, he remains a relative unknown. But fame and recognition were never things with Landi Gallery. “When we moved out here, I didn’t know this was which Inky concerned himself. For him, painting was an artist community. Didn’t know Bill—Willem de as necessary as breathing. He began traveling to Kooning. Didn’t know Jackson Pollock,” Inky says. I Venice with Barbara, sometimes staying as long as ask him if he ever became acquainted with the artists three months in a small apartment they rented just and he shrugs. “I didn’t bother much with groups. I off the Grand Canal. He tells me, “There are more paintings in Venice than you could imagine—every have social anxiety.” And that might be the crux of it. During a time street, every corner, every building.” For him, it was when being an experimental and modern artist the light on the water, the texture of cobblestones, was the thing to do, Inky’s paintings of crumbling the bright red of shutters. Those where the things Venetian buildings and rusted gas pumps, lonely that mattered. Inky laughs softly, “My son says, ‘Think she’ll ask SoHo alleyways, the grassy dunes of Gerard Drive and the dark blue canals with empty gondolas, recalled a you what’s the meaning of art?’ and I says, ‘I hope more traditional school rooted in Impressionism. not.’ But I thought of an answer anyway.” He pauses That, coupled with the social anxiety, made self- for effect. “Art is everything…and art is nothing.” Steven Trunzo

Movies... Fading Gigolo Woody Allen, before he became legitimately controversial, used to generate a certain amount of trivial controversy by casting himself as a leading man in romantic situations with women who were, by conventional standards, “too good” for him. As years went by, he added to this the controversy of casting himself as a leading man opposite women who were “too young” for him as well. Of course, in real life such mismatches, if they can be called that, are quite common. Now, as if to illustrate this situation as a farce, John Turturro has written and directed Fading Gigolo, in which the aging John Turturro himself— who, even as a young man, lacked the good looks of a typical leading man—plays a florist who becomes a gigolo. And a very successful and popular gigolo at that, servicing and satisfying a long list of women who are “too good for him.” In a nod to the most obvious antecedent to this general idea, Woody Allen himself plays Turturro’s procurer—that is, pimp. Kid Cannabis Just in time for “420,” Kid Cannabis tells the story, based on real life events, of a young high-school dropout who gets involved in a big-money marijuana smuggling operation. Finding that Canada has some “righteous buds,” and realizing that the porous border between Canada and the US is a lot less perilous for smuggling than that between Mexico and the US, the young man starts to smuggle weed in quantity. Of course, this brings him into conflict with some pretty heavy-duty criminals who control the

market, and things go south pretty quickly. Soon, the subject will be moot, as anyone who really wants to toke in peace can move to where it’s legal. Small Time It’s hard to imagine a figure more distrusted than the used-car salesman, and it’s hard to imagine a child wanting to become a used-car salesman. In Small Time, young Freddy Klein (Devon Bostick) announces his intention to skip college in favor of joining his father, Al Klein (Christopher Meloni), in the used car business, causing his mother (who is divorced from Al) to threaten suicide. The film tries to make the point that, while of course there’s a lot of deception in selling used cars, that doesn’t necessarily distinguish it from other, more reputable ways of making a living. Meanwhile, the skill of getting people to overcome their misgivings and make a decision that they want to make anyway—like when a used-car salesman exerts subtle pressure on a wavering customer—is a useful skill to have in many different situations. There’s no reason NOT to set a coming-of-age story in a used car lot.

“Weedling” My Way Toward Summer By jeanelle myers


ust as I can look at a garden bed no matter how large and spot a weed, my husband can look at the larger landscape and see a bird. He goes out almost every day to spot birds and photograph them. This week, he had a “first.” He saw a redphase eastern screech owl sitting by a hole in the neighbor’s tree. These owls are only eight inches tall but, using binoculars, we saw that it was sleeping... We could see his eyes closed...and see its feet! We have heard a screech owl frequently but seeing it was

amazing! Later we saw it in a confrontation with a squirrel for the hole in the tree…don’t yet know who won. Aside from their just plain “wonderfulness,” I’m delighted to have it in the neighborhood and would even welcome more, as they eat mice (among other things) and mice are vectors for ticks. The seeds that I ordered last week are here. Now I will arrange them by planting date in a box that can travel in the truck. With this box and each client’s list, I’m ready to plant their gardens. It often happens that something ordered is out of stock. I keep a list of these and order from another company. Be sure to

Our new neighbor, a red-phase eastern screech owl


check the invoice for this information or you might find yourself without that special vegetable or flower later. Now that the snow is gone, I took a cruise through the yard and saw swollen buds everywhere—big, fat ones on the camellias, lilacs, roses and hydrangeas. Some early daffodils are in bud. These often come up by January and are unaffected by snow. I saw early crocus foliage and expect the snowdrops soon— mine are later blooming. This is a perfect time to prune roses if one can bare the cold. Knowing how to prune different types of roses...tea roses, grandifloras, climbers, ramblers, floribundas, etc. will allow the gardener to maximize the health, vigor and flower production of the rose. While rose pruning can seem intimidating, learning these techniques from the internet and even better, from a book, is not difficult. A friend with two knockout type roses asked me about pruning them. Though knockouts will be fine with no pruning, they look better with some. Using diagrams, I explained the first three things to do when pruning most plants: remove dead wood to the point of live wood, remove any crossing branches and branches growing to the inside of the shrub or bush. (For roses, I then remove all canes that are smaller than a pencil.) I explained that cuts should be made to a bud facing outside the bush so that new shoots grow to the outside of the bush. These things alone will make any tree, shrub or bush look better and add to the health of the plant. It’s time to start repacking the truck. While my Ford Transit can hold a lot of tools, they must be stored in just the right way. Last year, I had the locations worked out but I then decided that the truck needed to be cleaned, not having done it the previous year. I enjoyed having a clean truck with the passenger seats down for the winter—but I hope I can remember where all of the tools stacked in the garage, the shed and in boxes go in the truck. This year I’m going to paint the handles of all of my tools red. Too many have been left on the job. The day is finished, the property is big and one just wants to get in the truck and go home—or the tool has fallen down and is hiding in the grass. I swear that tools hide themselves in weird places just so they don’t have to go into the truck to be put work again the next day.

enneth Yerves, Builder and owner of Montauk Homes LLC. has moved west to Main Street in Bridgehampton, NY

In 2005 Yerves moved his office from central Long Island to Montauk and branded the company name, Montauk Homes, LLC. His reputation quickly spread as a high quality east end home builder and designer with over 33 years of experience in the industry. In April, 2013, Yerves started construction on a beautiful 6,600 square foot home, located on a four acre sub division on Main Street, Amagansett called Amagansett Estates. Its proximity to town drew attention to his talents as a builder and design professional, which lead to his latest project in Bridgehampton. “It was the middle of the winter, and I was walking through town to the Bridgehampton Hardware Store, when I saw a ‘for rent’ sign on a quaint storefront. I knew instantly this is where I want to be! I’ve always loved Bridgehampton and now people can meet me and see what I have to offer.”

“Stop in for a cup of coffee and chat”

The new office is located at 2462 Main Street, store #4, Bridgehampton where his projects are on display. For information on any and all types of home remodeling, renovations or new construction call 631-907-4403 for an appt. 32900

Help at Home for “Robbie The Welder”


hat a good man can face hard times is not new or unusual, but seeing an entire community pull together for him is extraordinary. Napeague resident Robbie Badkin has been on the receiving end of such an outpouring of support from his tight-knit community when they realized that his mold-riddled house was making him sick. Badkin, welder, artist and philosophical soul, known to all in Lazy Point and Montauk, developed a blood infection that led to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome earlier this year, sending him to the hospital where doctors put him in an induced coma. Doctors were skeptical he would pull through. During this time, his family learned that Badkin’s home in Lazy Point was filled with black mold. There were financial issues, too—the kind a lot of good people have found themselves facing. Robbie’s nephew, David Elze, a local architect and artist, established a GoFundMe page to raise support for Robbie. He set a goal of $10,000, which he hoped would be enough to make repairs to Robbie’s house. That original goal was met in two days. But as Elze soon learned, the damage to the house and the financial problems were more extensive. With a new goal of $25,000 in place, over $19,500 has been raised as of this writing. And, donations of

street from Robbie, was worried labor and supplies have poured about her house flooding. The in. Robbie’s house is being decision was made to raise the restored by crews of volunteers, house. Elze has a clear memory people who are coming to work of Robbie driving up with the on his Lazy Point cottage after steel beams he had ordered, putting in a full day’s work jacking up the house and getting elsewhere. The volunteers the beams under the house so include Amagansett musician a mason could put in a block Matthew Schmitt. Schmitt’s twin foundation. “There was no brother suffered a traumatic thought that this was just too brain injury at a job site, but big. Nothing is impossible.” Schmitt has found time to “drop Elze’s words perfectly capture everything to help without Robbie’s point of view, which is hesitation,” Elze said, “without “you just have to figure out how complaint.” Local businesses to do it.” like Riverhead Building Supply, Elze has taken his uncle’s Blackman Plumbing, Sag Harbor philosophy to heart. Through Village Hardware, Hildreth’s of GoFundMe, other social media Southampton and others have promotions and a March 30 donated building materials fundraiser at Inlet Seafood in to rebuild Robbie’s home. Working on Robbie Badkin’s Napeague home Montauk, Elze has raised money Other local donors include Paul Forsberge of the Viking Fleet and Henry Uhlein of and awareness of Robbie’s situation. And his efforts Uhlein’s Marina. Everyone helped, because everyone have clearly paid off. People gave their money, knew Robbie. The local attitude is, “of course you sometimes anonymously, sometimes with just a few words wishing Robbie well. The Inlet Seafood know Robbie. You’re from Montauk.” “I’ve always looked up to my uncle,” Elze said. event underscored Robbie’s importance to the He remembers when his aunt, who lived down the community, as it was put on with support from local businesses and featured a silent art auction and a raffle. “It is unique out here,” Elze said, reflecting on the outpouring of support. “My call to the community might have been lost in the din of day-to-day noise someplace else. When I called for help, people heard and responded.” Courtesy David Elze

Playing and Indulging at Muse in the Harbor


use in the Harbor is billed as “a chef Matthew Guiffrida Production.” This phrase, seemingly borrowed from the opening credits of a movie, I take to mean that Guiffrida has put his personal imprint on all aspects of Muse. If this is true, I would say that, judging by his restaurant, Guiffrida is a man of great taste, given to playfulness and extravagance in equal measure. I say Guiffrida has great taste not only because he makes fantastic food, but also because on our recent visit, which was the first we’ve made to Muse during daylight, I noticed that the tasteful pale grey color of the napery and menus perfectly matched the tasteful color of my trousers. Muse’s is a very handsome dining room, and I looked great in there. We very comfortably settled in to nibble on the tender, warm rolls that are accompanied by tasty extra-virgin olive oil, sun-dried tomato spread and what my dining companion described as “serious” butter. Guiffrida’s playfulness comes across in names he gives some of his culinary creations—the Tuna “Ménage A Trois,” a tempting appetizer featuring tuna tartar, blackened tuna and seared tuna, and in “The Three Little Pigs,” a delightful entrée that presents pulled pork alongside homemade bacon and teriyakibraised pork belly. Then there’s Guiffrida’s playful blending of “high” and “low” cuisines, as in the naughty entrée of Southern-style chicken fried steak (here made with a veal cutlet), and also noticeable in the gentrification of the meatball found with

You Say “Ceviche,” I Say “Yum” By silvia lehrer

I don’t remember when I fell in love with ceviche, the popular seafood dish typically made with fresh raw fish, cured in citrus juices and chilies. I was reintroduced to the dish recently, when I dined in a Peruvian restaurant. Firm pieces of cod with slivers of pickled red onion and caramelized cubes of sweet potatoes melded into a luscious mix of ingredients with a bit of heat. For a twist on this coastal classic, I offer ceviche from The Old Oyster Factory, a North Fork restaurant no longer in existence. What better location to prepare ceviche than here on the East End with our abundance of fresh local fish? Along the way a young Peruvian woman I know introduced me to lomo saltado; this stir-fried beef stew incorporates french-fried potatoes with a serving of rice. The meat in the dish can be marinated in soy sauce—soy sauce in Peruvian food? In fact, Peruvian food reflects multicultural influences from the indigenous Incas, as well as the Spanish, Chinese, Italian and German cuisines, along with African influences. And it appears there’s a revival of Peruvian cuisine, staples of which incorporate corn, potatoes, chili peppers and the traditional quinoa. CEVICHE FROM THE OLD OYSTER FACTORY The Old Oyster, formerly on the North Fork, served this classic over a bed of lettuce with sliced avocado and diced red pepper for presentation. Serves 8 as first course

1/2 cup shucked oysters 1/3 cup fresh lime juice 1/4 cup fresh orange juice 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste grated rind of one lemon 1 small jalapeno (seeds removed), finely chopped To serve: Boston or red tipped lettuce 2 ripe avocados lemon juice and extra-virgin olive oil 1 small red onion cut into small dice 1. Place scallops and oysters in a mixing bowl. Add all ingredients except jalapeno and stir to mix. Refrigerate, covered in a suitable container and marinate overnight. 2. Before serving, drain the shellfish of excess liquid. Add jalapeno and stir to mix. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust seasoning as necessary. 3. Wash and spin-dry lettuce leaves. Arrange two or three leaves on salad plates, equally divided. 4. Peel, pit and slice avocados; fan slices equally over the lettuce. Sprinkle lemon juice and olive oil over each salad then scoop an equal serving of ceviche centered over each salad. Top with a sprinkle of red pepper dice and serve at room temperature. Adapted from Silvia Lehrer’s “Cooking at Cooktique,” (Doubleday and e-book, “The Simple Art of Cooking,” 2012) LOMO SALTADO PERUVIAN BEEF, POTATO AND RICE SAUTÉ This combination of serving potatoes and rice is a typical Peruvian peasant dish. The recipe can be prepared ahead, mixing the ingredients, then reheating before serving. The rice is treated as a separate dish.

AvAilAble June 13, 2014

Serves 4 1/4 cup canola oil 2 Russet potatoes cut for french fries 3/4 pound beef round cut into 3/8-inch cubes kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 1 large onion, thinly sliced 2 to 3 plum tomatoes cut into chunks 1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley or cilantro 1. Heat oil in a large, 10- to 12-inch, heavy skillet and put in the potatoes to fry until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Toss them around the pan to cook evenly. Transfer potatoes with slotted spoon to a large bowl. Put the meat in the skillet the potatoes cooked in and sauté, stirring occasionally until the meat loses its red color and is slightly crisp. Season the meat with salt and pepper and transfer to the potatoes in the bowl. 2. Add onion to the skillet that the potatoes and meat cooked in and sauté, stirring occasionally for 3 to 4 minutes. Add tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes longer. Transfer to the meat and potatoes. When ready to serve return all ingredients to the skillet, garnish with parsley and warm over low heat. Serve crispy *Peruvian rice on the side and serve. *Prepare white or brown rice by sautéing the rice in a little oil first with finely chopped onion then proceed with water, seasoning and cook as for basic rice recipe. Note: An option is to marinate the meat with 2 teaspoons each chopped garlic and soy sauce and 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin for 30 minutes. Or, bake frozen French fries as package directs. Five minutes before fries are done, stir-fry the beef and continue with the recipe.
