Barry Bonds, Brett Favre and President Barack Obama
Aw Nuts Brett Favre, Barry Bonds, Barak Obama and Donald Trump By Dan Rattiner It’s been an interesting week in the news. The Barry Bonds trial went to the jury. He was accused of lying to a Congressional Committee when asked if he took steroids during his years playing baseball. The jury convicted him. I thought the most interesting testimony at this trial was given by Bonds’ longtime girlfriend Kimberly Bell, who testified that during the time she knew him his testicles shrank. He went from being a big-balled guy to a little, tiny-balled guy. Shrinking testicles is apparently one of the side effects of getting injected with steroids. This was something I didn’t know. Apparently, testosterone, once hit with steroids, stops heading for the testicles and instead goes running hysterically up into the upper shoulders and arms to make those things bigger and better for hitting little balls very far with sticks.
Once, years ago, I was in San Francisco when there was a home game and I went to see the Giants play. Bonds came to bat three times. The pitcher was afraid of him. The first time he intentionally walked Bonds on four pitches. The second time he pitched to him but walked him on five pitches, one of which Bonds stared at, sniffed at and thought he would swing at but at the last minute changed his mind. Bonds was a physically huge person at the plate. Still, in my mind, I can see him there. His arms looked like tree trunks. In his third time at bat he hit the ball out of the park over the right field wall and down into the harbor where people in kayaks fight over the balls that come over the wall there and bob around in the water. Bonds trotted majestically around the bases. But it didn’t do the Giants any good. That was the only run they got, that day.
Brett Favre, the quarterback, was in the news this past week. Or at least the girl he sent e-mails to asking for her to come up to his hotel room was in the news. She claimed that after numerous rebuffs, Favre took a picture of his private parts with his cellphone camera which he forwarded to her, a fact she reported to the police. Now she was making the rounds of the talk shows explaining about how hard it was for Favre to get the message that she wasn’t interested, which, apparently, he finally did. It did not go well for Favre. The N.F.L. fined him $50,000. From all this, I conclude that Favre is not on steroids. Who sends out a picture of himself with shrunken testicles? The last item in the news that caught my interest this week was Donald Trump’s double announcement that he was considering run(continued on next page)
BANK HEIST IN WATER MILL GOES WRONG By Dan Rattiner On Eastern Long Island, the number of stickups at banks is well below the average around the rest of the country. The reason for this is unknown. It might be because everybody knows everybody. It might be because the bad guys from up-island don’t come out here to rob a bank because there are so many other banks nearer to their homes, so why go to all that extra trouble to make a long, unnecessary trip. Maybe law enforcement is just better out here. Whatever the reason, bank robberies are few
and far between. But they do occur. And one in particular, which happened last New Year’s Eve stands out. The perp in the case was arrested in days. The latest news is that last week, the police arrested the woman who handled the getaway car. What’s interesting about this stickup is, besides the fact that it took place the day before New Year’s Day, was how it was done, and what the woman—yes the perp was a woman—got. The perp was a woman from Manorville by the name of Stella Vassallo, age 28. She came
into the Suffolk County National Bank in Water Mill on foot, went up to teller Sunshine Gumbs and handed her a note which read “Give me all your money.” Gumbs had a question. “Do you have a gun?” she asked. “No. But if you don’t give me all your money, I’ll go home and come back with one.” The two stared at each other for a bit. Gumbs won the staredown. “I’ll be back,” Stella said, and she turned and walked out the way she came in. (continued on page 20)

He is rescued by a Wainscott Volunteer Firewoman who works at the library and they fall in love. G FIELD OF SCHEMES—Two Wall Street traders use their Blackberries on the sidelines of the Artists and Writers Baseball Game in East Hampton to wrest control of Barnes and Noble from Warren Buffett. R ANGIE’S SHOPPING DAY—A wealthy

PG CHARITY CRASHERS—Three couples from Massapequa crash various fundraising parties and although they get plenty to eat, they go broke giving away all their money to good causes.

about to be born, and some Air Rescue people rappelled down on a long rope, snatched up Mrs. Obama, flew her to Chicago and then, after she gave birth in the hospital there, with the certificate stamped and signed, choppered her and her baby back to Kenya. Obama was raised in Kenya. He only left Kenya when he got into Harvard—he was one of those young smart foreign students who have been taking student seats away from real Americans—and then he stayed and you know the rest of the story. Here’s anther thing for Trump to consider. Doctors have discovered there is an odd physical change that takes place in male members
of the Obama clan. When Obamans lie, their ears stick out further during the time they tell the lie. They’re the only people in the world with this defect. So when Obama goes on television to make a statement, watch those ears. It’s his only flaw. And it is why he has some trouble with diplomacy. Think of prize fighting where a trainer talks to his fighter in the corner and tells him he’s seen a flaw—the guy drops his left arm just before he throws the right. Got it? So world leaders know. This is reason for Trump to run for President.

ning for President and that he is going on a quest to prove that Barack Obama was not born in America. Well, I don’t know what to say about Trump’s idea of making a presidential run, but I can save him a whole lot of time and effort about Obama because I have already done the research. Obama’s mother was living with her husband in Kenya when she got pregnant. She intended for her son to be born in Kenya. But just as she went into labor, a helicopter appeared overhead, sent in by officials from the American Democratic Party who had been told a left-leaning Presidential leader was

Gumbs declared an emergency. The police were called. The doors to the bank were locked. When the police arrived, they took down the usual information, including what the woman looked like, what she said and whether she wore a mask or other disguise which, Gumbs told them, she did not. They also took a copy of the surveillance tape from the ceiling camera. Whoever this was would be right there on the tape. Around 8:30 that evening, the police got a call from the Gulf Station on County Road 39 in Southampton. An unidentified woman had come in and requested to purchase several hundred dollars worth of scratch-off lottery

tickets and had walked out without paying for them. After heading down there, and looking at the surveillance tapes at the gas station, the police realized this was the same woman who had been at the bank in Water Mill earlier in the day. Then, two days later, there was the report that this woman, once again, had gone into a Shell gas station on County Road 39 and had taken lottery tickets without paying for them. The next day, Stella Vasalloâ€™s luck ran out. The police arrested her at her home on Silas Carter Road in Manorville. She was transferred to the custody of the Southampton Town Police, spent the next night in the lockup and then the next day, after failing to make $52,000 in bail, was remanded to the Suffolk County Correctional Facility in Riverhead, where she resides today awaiting trial. The details of how her getaway car person was arrested have not been released, but what is known is that she is 25-year-old Paola Zuleta of Montauk, and she has now been arrested and charged and is awaiting arraignment.

Napeague’s Story How a Few Selfish People Seized on the Wording of a Deed By Dan Rattiner There are two ways to look at eastern Long Island. One is as a person privileged to enjoy it for the beautiful place it is. The other is as a person who thinks it’s every man for himself and the idea is to carve out a piece of it and to heck with everybody else. This second mindset is a selfish one and when it is applied to a beach or a body of water or a view or a field, it has the potential to diminish the East End not only for the rest of us, but also for those who erect the Keep Out signs, who now have to sit there and make sure that everybody stays away. Often when this happens, it’s a really good idea for the authorities to step up to the plate to make things right. At the present time, it’s happening in Napeague. And as a
matter of fact, the authorities are involved, like it or not. The matter concerns 20 homeowners who live oceanfront and look out onto the ocean along a one-mile stretch extending east from Napeague Lane. They are challenging the right of anyone other than themselves to walk or drive along the ocean beaches without their permission. Until now, the right to do so has been regulated by the East Hampton Town Trustees, following the tenets of an ancient 17th-century law known as the Dongan Patent, they are charged with protecting. These 20 homeowners think they have found a loophole in this old law on their onemile stretch of beach. If they are correct and if they prevail in court, this loophole would
not only end the rights of the town residents on this property, but also an additional three-mile strip to the west where today there are motels and condominiums along the beach. Here is an explanation of this loophole. In 1686, the King of England ordered the Governor of the State of New York, Thomas Dongan to pass a law permitting all the residents of each town free and open access to all the ponds, harbors, lakes and other bodies of water in their communities. At the time, the residents of East Hampton Town had jurisdiction only from the Southampton Town line to the western end of Napeague. Montauk was wild and was inhabited by the Montaukett Indians. It was (continued on next page)
POLO WAS CANCELLED, NOW IT’S A GO By David Lion Rattiner When you think about Disney World, you think about Mickey Mouse among other things, and when you think about the Hamptons, among other things, you think about rich people and horses. There are two major events in the Hamptons that involve horseback riding. The first event is The Hampton Classic, which is such an important event in the equestrian world and in this area that it has grown to mythic proportions. The second event is the Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge, which is considered to be the “real
deal” when it comes to polo. Expert polo players, mostly from Argentina, donning the latest in Polo Ralph Lauren gear, travel from all over the world to the Hamptons, to compete in a sport that nobody really cares about. It’s quite possibly the most interesting of events that nobody is interested in. At The Hampton Classic, where jumping is the main competition, there is actually a genuine interest among attendees as to who is competing, who is winning and which horse is the best. At Polo however, it quite honestly is all about thousands of people getting dressed up and
drinking underneath white tents. And it so happens that there is a group of guys from South America playing polo. But the point is that, even though nobody really cares, the Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge is part of our Hamptons heritage. We do care about it, not about the polo so much, but about the event itself. We care about driving up to Two Trees Farm in Bridgehampton and getting our bracelet that lets us into a tent with free booze. It’s about tradition. It’s about America. It’s about free(continued on page 24)

considered Indian land. Because of this, the Dongan Patent did not apply to Montauk. However, Governor Dongan’s Patent, as it was called, said that it would apply to whatever additional lands the towns were subsequently able to buy from the Indians. East Hampton Town then considered buying Montauk. The Indians, though they probably misunderstood the concept of what this meant, were willing. But at a town council meeting some people agreed to the purchase, but others said they would not support it. The purchase was unnecessary, they said. The Indians were a peaceful people and were already allowing the English to pasture their
cattle out in the hills of Montauk for free. Why go to the trouble? The decision was not to purchase. A few people in town, however, did go out to make that purchase. They approached the Indians and, presenting themselves as a stock company called the Montauk Proprietors, offered goods and money to the Indians for the property. The Indians sold. The Proprietors thus became the owners of Montauk and Napeague. For the next 200 years, they also freely shared the ponds, harbors, bays and beaches with the other members of the community. By 1880, however, the descendants of the Proprietors, now numbering in the hundreds

or even the thousands what with half shares and quarter shares and even eighth shares of the company, began to squabble. A few even sued one another. Ultimately, to end these squabbles, a judge ordered the Proprietors to sell the property from the western end of Montauk where the hills come down to Napeague to the federal land at the Montauk Lighthouse. And so, quite famously, they did. In 1879 a judge stood on the courthouse steps in Brooklyn, New York and conducted an auction. There was one buyer, a man named Arthur Benson. And for the sum of $151,000, he became the owner. He also then swiftly announced that the whole area he purchased would be off limits. He would use it only for family and friends for fishing, hunting, camping and other recreational outings. The cattle drives were over. As for the Indians, he offered them cash in exchange for moving their families to what he said was an enclave of Montauketts in Wisconsin. They went. Because of this sequence of events, some local residents argued 10 years ago that Montauk was never protected by the Dongan Patent. The Town never bought it. When a judge confirmed this about five years ago, the Town Trustees withdrew their jurisdiction back to the eastern edge of Napeague. As it turned out, however, whether the Trustees were out in Montauk really didn’t matter. During the last 50 years, more than half the entire peninsula of Montauk was purchased as public parkland. Half the town is thus protected for the citizenry anyway. Now it has been found that a few years after the giant sale to Benson, there was a second, smaller sale. This one was also from the Proprietors to Benson, and involved the land at Napeague, the six-mile long stretch which connects Montauk to Amagansett. Because of what happened to the pastureland in the first sale to Benson, the Proprietors saw to it that in the second sale, the rights of the fishermen would be protected. There is a codicil in the deed transfer from the Proprietors to Benson in this second sale. The local residents would retain the right to land boats on the beaches of Napeague where fish could be unloaded and other matters attended to—crew changes, repairs and so forth, and take wagonloads of fish across the property to market. How the meaning of the codicil will affect a judge’s decision in the recent suit remains to be seen. It is also the case that the land sold in that second six-mile purchase includes two miles of state parkland. One is the Hither Hills State Park, the other is Napeague State Park. Both extend for a mile and will remain open to the public. There is also a small stretch owned by the Town. As for the rest, the fate of the one-mile stretch is likely to affect the fate of the other four-mile stretch, which is where today there are the numerous motels, homes and condominiums. The public could be kicked off that stretch too. Over the years, with various legal chal(continued on page 24)

lenges and twists and turns, various bits of waterfront and our beaches have been lost. Some challenges have been beaten back. Others succeeded because municipalities ran out of the funding to pay for a further defense. Perhaps the codicil will prove to be a saving grace. As a member of the East Hampton Town Trustees pointed out to me, in the current case of the one mile, what it’s really all about is 12 Sundays a year. This is really a remote and wild area. The 20 oceanfront homeowners look out at a beautiful and almost uninhabited beach for 353 of the 365 days of the year. But on the 12 Sundays in the summertime, local East Hampton residents like to go out along this stretch with their families to fish and sun and enjoy themselves, usually going there by four-wheel drive vehicle. It is also true that if the public is cleared out, the value of the properties of these 20 property owners increases. They have dollar signs in their eyes. Shame on these people for trying to ruin what is so wonderful about this town.

dom. And we almost lost it all. Yep, in March it was announced by David Walentas, the real estate mogul who is pretty much personally responsible for the development of DUMBO Brooklyn, that the time for playing polo in the Hamptons was a thing of the past. The 115-acre Two Trees property, which he owns, would no longer be leased out to the organizers of the Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge. Bridgehampton Polo Club owners Peter Brant and Neil Hirsch, as well as Mercedes-Benz, were all sort of in a state of shock, and the media went wild with the news. How could the Hamptons not have polo? How will we all justify walking around wearing Polo shirts this summer? The reasoning was pretty simple: Walentas wanted to sell his farm, and he wasn’t going to be able to sell it if a bunch of polo people were going to be running around on it all summer long. Everyone held their breath, where would they hold it if not at the Two Trees Farm? WHAT WERE THEY TO DO?!??! Well, after a lot of hard negotiating, a deal was struck last week and the Hamptons will be set to enjoy a 15th year of not watching polo while standing underneath a white tent. But there is a big change this year with the Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge, and that change is that Mercedes-Benz will no longer be sponsoring the event. Which means that the name of the event will change, but nothing else, at least according to the organizers, will change. The title sponsor has not been announced, but possible event names include: The Nathan’s Hot Dogs Polo Challenge, The Pepsi Challenge Polo Challenge, The Heinz Ketchup Polo Challenge and The Kleenex Polo Challenge. We will all have to wait and see who wins the sponsorship.

READ KARL GROSSMAN’S BOOK FREE
Three Mile Island, Pennsylvania
By Elise D’Haene Last week, officials upgraded the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan to a Level 7. That’s as high as the scale goes. The last Level 7 was given to Chernobyl (ghost town). Seven means MAJOR ACCIDENT. In Sag Harbor, Martin Shepard, the co-publisher with his wife Judy of The Permanent Press, felt as many of us did watching the events in Japan unfold after the largest earthquake ever recorded struck that nation followed by a tsunami, resulting in the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. Helpless. Shepard thought about a book they had published in 1980, written by writer Karl Grossman, called Cover Up: What You Are Not Supposed To Know About Nuclear Power. A second edition came out in 1982. Shepard realized with all the reporting about the catastrophe in Japan focusing on the dangers posed by the current crisis, “few people under 50 know how this disingenuous and dangerous technology got started and why.” Shepard has been outraged by what he has heard on the news regarding Japan: “We are being assured that Japan’s plants are not like ours, and ours are far safer, when in fact none of them are safe.” Shepard and Grossman put their heads together. Let’s reissue Cover Up, but for free. Let’s allow people to download it to their computers. LET’S GO VIRAL. “I asked Karl if he wanted to do an update for a possible third edition, and he wrote a 14page preface bringing things up to date,” Shepard said, “showing, for instance, how President Obama’s chief advisors, Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod, have profited financially from the nuclear energy industry and that his energy secretary, Steven Chu, emerged from the U.S. government’s national nuclear laboratory system as an advocate for using nuclear power.” Grossman, a veteran reporter for newspapers, radio and TV in New York, winner of journalism’s George Polk Award, describes in his book exactly how nuclear power works and how disasters can happen. “From inside sources including statements by federal and corporate officials, he makes a strong case for the view that giant nuclear energy corporations have taken extreme measures to hide the shocking facts about nuclear power, and are now stalling development of other energy sources in order to protect their huge invest-
ments.” Shepard’s hope is that a major publisher would step up to the plate and reissue the book. But it can be read right now, by going to thepermanentpress.com. The way Shepard sees it, the “material Karl unearthed back in the late ‘70s proving industry and government collusion was worthy of a Pulitzer Prize.” Taxpayer money, he said, continues to flow to energy companies that give massive campaign contributions to politicians that approve more subsidies for nuclear power. “It seemed to me, and to Karl as well, that the best thing we could possibly do is to give
Cover Up away immediately. It’s that important and that timely.” Shepard hopes that those who download the book will contact everyone they know by “email, Facebook, Twitter, and by blog, and encourage them to do the same thing. Just click on the link and let us, collectively, go viral with this information.” He added, “We’re not interested in making a nickel off of Cover Up. Let William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins, make a profit from 20-year-old Bristol Palin’s ghostwritten Not Afraid of Life due out this summer. Our passion in publishing has always been the good feeling that comes from doing worthy books, which trumps profits any time.”

Over in East Hampton, Republican Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson seems to be well positioned to be easily re-elected after lowering taxes in the double digits and bringing order to what was a chaotic town government. The silence from the Democrats as to who will challenge Wilkinson is awkward at this point. With well-liked Democratic Board member Julia Prince not running for re-election and incumbent Democratic Board member Pete Hammerle offering to run again but waiting for approval from the East Hampton Democratic Committee, author Steven Gaines has publicly thrown his hat into the ring to run for E.H. Town Board as a Republican and has already been screened by Town Republican chairwoman, Trace Duryea. Finally, I find it important to mention that veteran Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman (I-Montauk) is running for reelection for the fifth time. (You are allowed eight two-year terms.) Throwing his hat into the ring to oppose Schneiderman is former Southampton Town Supervisor Patrick â€œSkipâ€? Heaney. Some see this election as one to watch.

A HUGE DONATION COMES TO LVIS made sense. According to the society’s mission statement, it was “formed for the maintenance and preservation of historical landmarks and for the maintenance of ponds, parks, greens, and trees in the Village of East Hampton and vicinity, as well as for the charitable and educational improvement and the advancement of the general welfare of the said Village of East Hampton and vicinity.” The L.V.I.S. spends more than $60,000 a year caring for the village greens, including Town Pond. It also maintains the nature trail, plants and watches over trees and raises money for scholarships. The popular
L.V.I.S. Bargain Box Thrift Shop, Bargain Books and Furniture Barn are fundraising stalwarts. The society’s annual summer fair has been held for 114 years and will take place this year on July 20. Andrews added that Ryan often came to the fair as a child, and continued his quiet interest as a young man and right up until his death. Asked what the society intended to do with such a large bequest (the largest ever by a single donor), Andrews said, “The Board is meeting in May, and it will certainly be under discussion.” Look to future issues of Dan’s Papers for plans from the L.V.I.S.
CAMPO BROTHERS CUSTOM HOMES
Richard Nelson Ryan Jr.
By Sharon McKee Richard Nelson Ryan, Jr. died in East Hampton on December 28, 2010 at the age of 64. He was a well-known figure around town, described by many as “an ordinary guy.” While Ryan had a reputation for supporting friends in need, as well as charities and causes he believed in, no would have taken him for a millionaire philanthropist. And yet that is exactly what he was. A short three months after his death, Ryan’s sister, Hope Ryan Garrett, announced that her brother had left a posthumous gift to the East Hampton Ladies Village Improvement Society for a little over $1 million. While everyone was shocked by the size of the gift, the ladies at the L.V.I.S. were in fact familiar with Ryan’s generosity. According to Nancy Andrews, president of the L.V.I.S, “He was a very generous man. Starting around 1997, he would often drop off checks at Christmas time for as much as $20,000. He believed in the L.V.I.S. and in our mission,” she added. Ryan often professed a dedication to preserving the past, and an affinity with those who revered it, so his choice of the L.V.I S.

The Hamptons They Are A-Changin’ By T.J. Clemente Ah, some things never change, like the fresh scent of that salt ocean air blowing across your face on any given day in the Hamptons. Is it any wonder that after the American Revolution it took the British Army a few years to leave East Hampton? However, change always comes, and in the Hamptons some of the changes for the 2011 season will be noticeable and may alter the way the season is enjoyed. There will be a passenger ferry out of Sag Harbor, a free electric bus shuttle to the beaches in East Hampton Village and Amagansett, and in Southampton and East Hampton
Villages some tough, new “smoke-free laws.” Smoking has become almost public enemy number one. In East Hampton Village there is a new ban on smoking in parts of Herrick Park and Main Beach, with smoking prohibited on the deck at the beach pavilion and within 50 feet of the playground. The East Hampton Village Board amended the “Peace and Good Order Law,” so that all smoking, including cigarettes, tobacco pipes or “similar smoking substance” is now illegal. Those caught puffing there are subject to a $250 fine within 50 feet of any playground equipment in the park or on the deck at the Main Beach pavilion. The smoking ban includes areas such as the con-
cession stand, shower areas, ramps and cabanas. The Southampton Village board had also adopted similar legislation earlier this year that will prohibit the pleasure of smoking tobacco products at places such as Downs Family Park and Windward Way Park. Like the East Hampton Village law, Southampton Village will also prohibit smoking within 50 feet of any playground apparatus or equipment in Agawam Park. Enforcement will also be in effect within 50 feet of the concession stand, deck and shower areas at Coopers Beach from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week.) So smokers beware! Response Marine is awaiting one final approval to launch its passenger ferry service, connecting four locations in the Hamptons. If things go according to plan, the water shuttle will run winter, spring summer and fall, connecting Montauk, Sag Harbor, Greenport and Riverhead. The service will cost $7.50 for children and $10 for adults. What fun will it be to “water taxi” from Sag Harbor to Greenport, Montauk or even Riverhead on a warm summer’s day. The harbor locations for departures and arrivals are still being ironed out, however, it looks like all green lights for this new service. In Amagansett and East Hampton Village, the two hamlets that seems to have a big summer beach population and limited parking, change has come due to the brainstorming of some young local men still in their 20s. Alexander Esposito, James Westfall and James Mirras are being credited with conceiving the idea of the new Town of East Hampton Boardapproved “Hamptons Free Ride,” a shuttle service with electric-powered vehicles to take tourists (actually anyone) to and from the beach during the “season.” The plan is to finance this new free service through revenue that will be raised from local advertisements placed inside the electric vehicles. With pickup sites such as the train stations in both East Hampton Village and Amagansett, the electric vehicles will be buzzing about on their runs 12 hours a day. With gas prices going higher, many wise and prudent beach worshippers will utilize this “free electric service” and leave the car at home. It may be great for children not old enough to drive to have some options instead of waiting for the folks to bring them or pick them up at the beach.

BY THE BOOK by Joan Baum
No way a reader of Louis Romano’s violent, funny, dialect-strewn-politically-incorrect, action-filled debut novel, Fish Farm, is going to buy into the pro-forma disclaimer that “characters, events and locations in this book are fictitious.” For one, the fish farm at the center of the story is modeled on the Multi Aquaculture Systems complex on Cranberry Hole Road in Amagansett (called here Raspberry Hill Road). For another, the Bronx born and bred author, who lived for a while in the same project as his hero, Gino, owns a home in Montauk and knows his way around turns off Route 27. Even Dan’s Papers gets referenced. The story’s biggest baddy, a sadistic Colombian drug lord, Luis (Lucho) Gonzales, lives on a 27-acre ocean estate in East Hampton, and has been photographed in Dan’s playing in the Artists and Writers “Softball” Game, a testicular misnomer, if ever there was one for him. For immediate verisimilitude, there’s the book’s opening chapter on Mafia-infested Lercara Friddi (Lucky Luciano’s hometown),
southeast of Palermo (“tough small towns make tough big people”), and an informed quickie history on la vendetta, the “incurable disease,” Sicilian immigrants brought to America in the 1890s. Factor in, also, an early scene of an over-the-top wedding Gino attends in Howard Beach, Queens, a place that “exudes an air of mafia influence that cannot be found anywhere else on the planet.” Who’s narrating? Who knows! Gnomic lore abounds: “The mob has more rules than the Vatican” and more sophisticated firepower than the NRA. Old Sicilian proverb: “A fish dies by its open mouth.” The Sicilians even control “Spanish” Harlem. In an e-mail Romano notes that he “ran around with the sons of some big time wise guys” (his parents didn’t know), and “saw the life upfront and personal.” He credits his “100% Italian-Sicilian” mom, however, for keeping him away from “that business.” He became a Shabbos Goy, he went to college, and there was once an offer—that he did refuse. Though Fish Farm is drenched in mindless, up-close, gut-splitting sicko violence, our guy, Gino, the kingpin’s godson, despite a middleage crisis that has him lusting after a not-sosweet but gorgeous young thing, avoids the search-and-destroy missions that engage his childhood buddies, trained to take no prisoners and “have a spaghetti dinner an hour after a blood-bath.” He’s also good with guard dogs. Rhodesian Ridgebacks (really bred at the real fish farm) can make “great family pets but should not be considered a dog to f*** with.” Note to Lucho: Ditto The Mob.
The real Fish Farm
Flawed, but right up there with America’s continuing fascination with All Things Mafia, Fish Farm can sometimes rise above numbing violence and thin characterization to deliver a nice sly thrust: If the “biggest blood-letting to hit Eastern Long Island since 1653” didn’t attract the police, maybe the neighbors “were all out having their pictures taken at one of those ridiculous Hampton tent parties you see in Dan’s Papers or they were home and hoping that the noise was part of those Spanish people having at each other in the hopes of thinning the herd.” April Minis In Concierge Confidential, a “through-thekeyhole” peek at “the hidden world of a professional concierge,” Michael Fazio, a long-time East Hampton weekender, lets “the gloves come off ” and “the secrets come out,” as he (continued on page 40)

Neighbor: By Elise D’Haene We’ve been happily keeping an eye on Kim Cattrall this past year, thanks to “Masterpiece Theatre,” where she appeared in two outstanding pieces, My Boy Jack, playing the wife of Rudyard Kipling and “Any Human Heart,” a Masterpiece series in which she played one of the love interests of the actor Matthew Macfadyen, a deliciously handsome, extremely talented Brit. Interestingly, Cattrall received rave reviews last March playing opposite Macfadyen in Noel Coward’s Private Lives at the Vaudeville Theatre in London. As The Telegraph said, “the sparks really fly.” They, along with almost every other reviewer across the pond, couldn’t get enough of Cattrall. “She puts one in mind of the kind of woman Marilyn Monroe might have become had she lived a little longer and somehow clung on to happiness and stability.” The reviewer said she was “a vision to behold, at ease in her body, and miraculously combining vulnerability with sharp wit.” For those who just can’t unglue Cattrall from her role as the vixen Samantha Jones in “Sex in the City” (the series and the films) – let it go. Check out her understated, powerful performance as Carrie Kipling in My Boy Jack, opposite David Haig and Danielle Radcliffe (Harry Potter). She portrays a woman who had to deal with the death of two of her three children, including Jack who died in World War I. Fiercely protective of her husband, she stunningly evokes the primal instinct of mother-love as she watches her boy, prodded by his father, go off and fight in the Great War. Cattrall, who was born in Liverpool, England, to Dennis Cattrall, a construction engineer and Gladys Shane, a secretary, was raised in both British Columbia, Canada and England. She took a number of acting classes at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. She has said that when she was little, one of the only TV shows she could watch was “Masterpiece Theatre.” She fell in love with actors such as Glenda Jackson in “Elizabeth R,” Derek Jacobi in “I, Claudius” and Keith Michelle in “The Six Wives of Henry VIII.” These monarchs of British acting were her early mentors. Of those who need to let go of Cattrall’s “Sex in the City” character Samantha, perhaps, are members of the media. At a recent screening in New York City for her latest role in the indie film Meet Monica Velour, a young, female “Page Six” reporter asked Cattrall if she’d just had a

of weight and I’m going to make you look really bad. I want to blow all that glamour girl crap into tiny pieces.” When Bearden left the meeting and was walking home, “my producer Jordan called me. Kim had immediately called her agent and said she wanted to make the movie with me. Her openness, honesty, work ethic and commitment to the project were the reasons I agreed.” We love Cattrall’s presence in the Hamptons and her commitment to so many local charities and benefits. She joined the Artistic Associates Committee at the Bay Street Theatre. She and Edie Falco were honorary event chairpersons for the Ellen Hermanson Foundation benefit in 2009, and she hosted the Heat party benefiting Ellen’s Run. She’s an author, having published her first book, Satisfaction: The Art of the Female Orgasm, in 2003 with the help of her then husband, Mark Levinson. In 2006, Cattrall published her second book, Kim Cattrall: Sexual Intelligence. She was outstanding as Samantha in “Sex in the City,” winning a Golden Globe and two Screen Actors Guild Awards. But Samantha was a ROLE Cattrall played. She’s a serious actor. In addition to her many film roles, Cattrall has returned to the stage over and over, making her London debut in 2005 in Sir Peter Hall’s production of Who’s Life Is It Anyway? to critical acclaim. She also been in productions by playwrights such as David Mamet, Arthur Miller, Anton Chekhov, Strindberg and Moliere. Here is what the critics are saying of this serious actor’s performance in Meet Monica Velour: “Kim Cattrall gives a bold, courageous, jaw-dropping performance that deserves the attention it’s getting.” (The New York Observer) “Photographed more cruelly than a tabloid victim, she gives Monica a grubby dignity that her ‘Sex and the City’ alter ego, Samantha Jones, would wholeheartedly applaud.” (New York Times) “Cattrall is terrific, investing her portrayal with a complex mixture of vulnerability, toughness and still-powerful sexuality.” (Hollywood Reporter) The 54-year-old relished playing Monica, telling an interviewer, “For once, with Meet Monica Velour, I got to experience how wonderful it is to not have to look a certain way—I didn’t have to be sexy.” We’re looking forward to her next film Treehouse, due out some time in 2012 and costarring Jeremy Irons. When we see her around town this summer, we’ll be sure not to ask any stupid questions.
“For once, with Monica Velour, I got to experience how wonderful it is to not have to look a certain way.” bikini wax. Cattrall’s response to this reporter was direct and firm: “That’s a stupid question. You’re a smart girl. How could you want to write that? Being a gossip reporter just isn’t a respectable job. It’ll chew you up and spit you out. Why don’t you work at—what’s that news agency— Roybers? Reuters. Yeah, sorry, I’ve been drinking. What about writing for a blog? Then you can write about what you want or care about. You didn’t even see my film. Why are you here?” Of course, the actor’s response went viral. It WAS a stupid question. Cattrall took on a risky role in Meet Monica Velour, gained 20 pounds to play an aging, lonely ex-porn star living in a trailer and barely scraping by. When she met with the director, Keith Bearden, to discuss the possibility of appearing in his very small independent film, he told her “I want you to gain lots

Most straphangers jammed into these kiosks apparently not because they wanted the food but because they wanted to go somewhere. When they found this was impossible, but saw the real subways coming and

going on the other side of the platform, they went nuts. The Commissioner and the C.E.O. of Subway Restaurants have huddled and rethunk the problem. The result is the Subway restaurants stay. But now there is a second sign under the SUBWAY sign. It says SUBWAY and an arrow points across the platform. There is also another arrow being added to the SUBWAY sign on top. It points straight down, welcoming customers in where they can enjoy all the tasty treats Subway has to offer. Both arrows are in red so you canâ€™t miss them. Hampton Subway and Subway Restaurants have a three-year binding agreement for Subway to provide sandwiches and such to the customers on the subway platforms. STRIKE THREATENED The men who clean the interior walls every week through the Hampton Subway tunnels are threatening to strike next Thursday. They demand better working conditions and higher pay. The walls get covered with soot and grime, the trains coming through every 12 minutes means they hang by their fingers on the cleats along the walls to keep from getting killed, it is pitch dark, there are not enough scrub brushes and detergent, there is always the danger from disease-bearing rats and down below is the third rail, sometimes sitting in a pool of water. Commissioner Aspinall has set up a first meeting with the union leader on July 4. ANNUAL COMMISSIONERâ€™S PARTY The annual party held at Commissioner Aspinallâ€™s oceanfront home in Georgica last Thursday was a huge success. Jimmy Lee Flashâ€™s Swing Band entertained for hours on the beach with music from the 1940s. Catering was by the Four Seasons in Manhattan. And the 90-person Hampton Subway staff together with their wives and children were free to run around the estate and enjoy the hot tubs, the beach houses, the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, the game roomâ€”this writer won $24 at billiardsâ€”the massage room, the Scottish Shower Room, the movie theatre, the casino and the â€œsleepingâ€? room where guests could go to charge their batteries. The Rockettes from Radio City Music Hall entertained in the Aspinall Theatre, and everyone enjoyed the Pollocks, Miros, Cezannes, de Koonings and Van Goghs in the gallery. Mick Jagger entertained in the nightclub, Billâ€™s Place, and the captain and crew served as bartenders at the cash bar aboard the Commissionerâ€™s yacht out back. A good time was had by all. Commissioner Aspinall and his lovely wife Babette made a brief appearance in the grand ballroom at midnight. And people danced the night away, which accounted for the partial service for straphangers in the morning, which we deeply regret. SISTER CITY Hampton Subway has become a â€œsister cityâ€? with the Subway System in Punte del Este, Uruguay. Gifts are to be exchanged. Press releases sent out. Commissioner Bill Aspinall had a luncheon with the Mayor of Punte del Este, His Honor Carlos Papito Caliente-Barros and seven of his staff at the Subway on the platform of the station in Hampton Bays.

TWENTY SOMETHING by David Lion Rattiner
I really just can’t figure out how I feel about Donald Trump running for President of the United States. My first impression of Trump is, go get ‘em buddy, let’s make things right. But then, I don’t know, I have thoughts. During one of his many interviews, I defi-
nitely sensed his passion. I got the feeling that he just wants to bulldoze everything, start from scratch and build something great. I can feel his passion about the country; I share the same passion, like all of us do. During this interview he used the word “respect” a lot. If I run and if I win, America will be respected again. But as my heart filled with inspiration about a great American businessman running
for president, I listened to him discuss a barrel of oil. “A barrel of oil is going to be more than $100 soon,” he said. It’s been more than $100 for a long, long time, I think. He doesn’t know this? I know a lot of people, and I mean a lot of people, who have told me that they would vote for Donald Trump if he ran for president. He’s smart with money, a brilliant businessman, they say. It’s true, the Trump brand is extremely impressive. When you hear the name Trump, you know exactly who we are talking about. He’s created a celebrity out of himself by being a businessman, and his businesses have been through a lot. Trump has been the name behind several massive bankruptcies and bad businesses, and has also been the name behind some massive successes. He talks about Obama and his birth certificate, and Washington sort of cringes when he talks about it, but in a way there is a genius behind it – it gets attention. It’s those little tricks with the media and with business that Trump does best, and how he translates them into politics remains to be seen. There are a lot of real problems facing America, and being charming and strong isn’t going to solve a growing $14 trillion deficit. And it ain’t going to solve a falling dollar, rapidly rising gas prices and global financial instability. There’s a problem too with blaming the other guy for everything that’s wrong, because when you run on that kind of platform (like Obama did), in very short order you become the other guy. What criticizing the loudest does do is get you attention from people. Criticism creates authority and the truth is that we all felt this way when Obama was running. We all tuned in for a speech about hope and the future and became believers. But what is kind of a sad reality is that Trump is benefiting from the same kind of attention, that Obama got. Things aren’t going well, so let’s get in somebody new. I’ve noticed with a lot of people that they use the words, “You really have to stay positive,” when it comes to just about anything in life. You could be in a world of trouble, but if you “stay positive” things will “work out,” they say. Well I’m getting a little tired of listening to this type of rhetoric when it comes to the country that I live in. I don’t want to have to “think positive” about this country and “hope” that things will turn around. I want things to ACTUALLY be positive and for reality not to be $4 gasoline on its way to $5 and out-of-control deficits. That would be nice for a change. There are some hard decisions on the horizon when it comes to our country, and I hope (although I’m doubtful) that the selections in November will be a little bit more about keeping this country great and a little bit less about getting elected.

Restaurant Review: Southampton Publick House
with-cheese dishes, I can testify that this one is not overly salty. Try to get some pico de gallo in each bite to keep it lively. My dining partner started with the Potato Ale Soup. Cheddar, scallions and bacon—yum! The ale provided a delicious, slightly yeasty undernote. The menu offers three main entrée options, Grill Offerings, House Classics and Pub Favorites. We went for the pub fare. My dining partner ordered the Lager Dipped Fish and Chips. A crispy but tender batter encased a nice, moist piece of fish. I had the Smoky
Mushroom Wrap. The mushrooms were almost buttery, the amount of creamy goat cheese was generous. Thank you, Southampton Publick House—your house slaw is not overly sweet. We were too stuffed for dessert. I’d forgotten how filling “liquid bread” (beer) can be. We passed on the selection of seven specialty coffees—though the “Nutty Irishman” was tempting—and finished with heated Remy Martin Cognac. The Southampton Publick House, 40 Bowden Square, Southampton, 631-283-2800, publick.com.
A favorite table at the Publick House.
By Stacy Dermont For my crew, eating at the Southampton Publick House is all about the beer. We enjoy drinking it, eating it and watching it being made. The Southampton Publick House offers award-winning ales and lagers in a familyfriendly atmosphere. Brewmaster Phil Markowski makes batches of up to 500 gallons at a time. Typically the Publick House has eight of their own brews on tap, including three seasonal varieties. We ordered their flight of beer, The House Brew Sampler, a four-ounce serving of each of the eight. It featured the Southampton Double White Ale, Southampton Altbier—their Secret Ale, Southampton India Pale Ale (I.P.A.), Southampton Gold, Montauk Light, Uber Bach, Oatmeal Stout and Sullivan’s Irish. We quite liked the pleasant bitterness of the Southampton I.P.A. The Oatmeal Stout was a bit carbonated and lightly smokey. The Sullivan’s Irish is a bit spicy, like Southampton Publick House’s owner, Don Sullivan, himself. Their May Bach will be out soon. I was particularly taken with their Montauk Light. I felt that I could drink a lot of it. This led to the inevitable question, “What would be the best beer to drink at the top of the Montauk Lighthouse?” After careful consideration, I think that Montauk Light would be a fine choice. Our server Krissy has been working at the Publick House for 14 years, almost from the beginning. The Publick House opened in 1996, well before most American microbrewery operations. Krissy was quite knowledgeable about beer. She is able to offer beer-pairing suggestions for all of the Publick House’s menu. I started with the Irish nachos, French fries and sweet potato fries slathered with cheese, pico de gallo, scallions and sour cream. This is a dish to share. As a devotee of French-fries-

Kathleen Turner Plays a Tough-Talking Nun By Sharon McKee Sheâ€™s played a prostitute, a sultry murderess, a Mafia hit-woman and the man-eating Martha in Whoâ€™s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Now Kathleen Turner takes her turn as a nun. But itâ€™s really not such a stretch for the Tony-nominated actress and part-time Hamptons resident. She returned to Broadway on April 18 in Matthew Lombardoâ€™s dark drama High, playing Sister Jamison Connelly (hint: but for a vowel, her very name spells Irish Whiskey). Sister Jamison is no singing nun or flying nun, nor the kind of nun who dances on mountaintops and makes lederhosen out of the draperies.
Sheâ€™s a foul-mouthed, streetwise, ex-alcoholic nun who favors tight pants and sweaters â€œout of habit.â€? Rising-star playwright Lombardo wrote the part with Turner in mind. The play is based on his struggle with addiction and as he told The New York Times, when he needed a â€œbroadâ€? to play the part of the once-addicted addiction counselor, he thought of Turner. He meant that in the kindest possible way. Turnerâ€™s resume of intelligent tough-girl characters is legendary, including the sizzling Matty in Body Heat, a hired killer in Prizziâ€™s Honor and Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. In High she gets to wrap her gravely baritone around vocabulary that has been described

by one critic as â€œprofanity that might outstrip an explicit rapperâ€™s.â€? As it turns out, another Hamptons regular will be waiting anxiously with Turner for the early-morning reviews. Lizabeth Zindel is an actress, novelist and daughter of Paul Zindel, who won the 1971 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-theMoon Marigolds. This is her first time as a Broadway producer, so there are indeed two big reasons to have the highest of hopes for High. â€œI remember my dad in the â€˜80s taking me to see Romancing the Stone and afterwards telling me how much he loved Kathleen Turner,â€? Zindel said. â€œI had never seen my father so struck by a woman beforeâ€”other than my mother, of course. Looking back now, I understand his infatuation more clearly. There's a way a leading lady can inspire a playwrightâ€”especially the force of nature named Kathleen Turner. She is the reason I chose to make my Broadway debut producing High.â€? Zindel has Turner in mind for another project. â€œMy dream is to produce a Broadway revival of my father's play The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds one day and have Kathleen Turner star in the role of Beatrice. That would be a beautiful and cyclical journeyâ€”his words coming out of her mouth as he had imagined they could.â€? Zindel said that High is a â€œpowerful theatre experienceâ€?...and that â€œthere's a depth and richness to playwright Matthew Lombardo's language,â€? who was himself a meth addict. In a letter from the playwright, he writes about his recovery from addiction saying, "I know the odds are against me. That only one in three will survive and recover. And with crystal meth addicts the odds get even worse. For thereâ€™s only a staggering 6% chance of recovery and that is after five years of continuous clean time. So I certainly have my work cut out for me. But what keeps me clean today is simply what medical professionals surprisingly all agree is the most effective: A Belief in a Power Greater Than Oneself."

THE SHELTERED ISLANDER by Sally Flynn
All My Mishegas I can’t believe it! I am reeling from the shock! ABC canceled “All My Children”! I followed it on and off for years. I will miss it. It’s like when Johnny Carson retired from “The Tonight Show.” As much as I love Jay Leno, he ain’t Johnny. And nothing they put on instead of “All My Children” will beat the heartbreaks, affairs, secrets, weddings and murders that I came to cherish so tenderly. Until I was 30, I never watched a soap opera. They were beneath me, a ridiculous waste of time. I couldn’t understand how anyone with a three digit IQ could allow themselves to be sucked into these stupid shows. But karma has a way of stepping in, doesn’t it? In the summer of that year, my husband and I were in a car accident. A truck blew a stop sign and came straight into the passenger seat breaking 17 bones on my right side, including all my ribs, which tore away the bottom half of my lung. And I broke three nails. My husband had two cervical fractures and missed becoming a quadriplegic by a mere two millimeters of bone. So, there we were, trying to recover at home, side by side in recliners. We both lost a lot of weight because we were too weak to walk to the kitchen and forage. We didn’t have a television with a remote so we would turn on “Good Morning America” and leave ABC on all day or until one of us had to get up for something. That’s how we both began watching “All My Children.” I watched people, always with nice clothes and the women always with hair done and make-up. They had normal sounding conversations and lived in clean houses with no money problems. The men were all handsome and well-dressed. And then I’d look around me, the mess that I couldn’t clean up. I didn’t care about my hair or make-up, and the unshaven man with the metal halo and bolts in his head next to me in his recliner wasn’t looking too good either. Neither of us could maintain any conversation deeper than him saying, “I’ll trade you two Vicodins for a Percocet.” And me responding, “Keep the Vicodins. I’ll give you a Percocet if you get up and get the can opener and as many cans of whatever you can find in the kitchen.” I recall us having meals of canned peas. I have to admit, that under the influence of medication, sleep deprivation, and starvation, everything and everyone on “All My Children” looked wonderful and made sense. We were hooked. We talked about what the characters might or might not do, we worried about them, and when Jennie got killed on her Jetski on her honeymoon—I didn’t think we’d ever recover! By then my husband had found a blender and
was mixing daiquiris on the floor next to his recliner and drinking right from the pitcher. I don’t drink, so I don’t know exactly what’s in a daiquiri, but if you mix it with Vicodin, all pain apparently leaves your body and all worries leave your mind. I have to say, I applaud any chemical mixture that eases the suffering of anyone with bolts in their head attached to struts that go to a large chest piece. It hurt me to look at him. I’d like to say that I didn’t join him in having daiquiris on the basis that I’d never consumed alcohol before and wasn’t going to start then, but that’s not true. We each had our own little side table and he was on my injured side, he knew I couldn’t
reach out for a glass and that’s why he thought it was okay to drink out of the pitcher—he didn’t fool me. It was because of watching “All My Children,” and learning how devious people can be that led me to believe that he deliberately set up camp on my injured side so he didn’t have to share anything. He probably was hiding cookies and sandwiches from me by that blender... “.....and that’s when I shot him, your Honor.” And in the soap opera world, that would have been justifiable homicide. Jack Montgomery would have defended me and we’d have fallen in love, and all because bolt-head couldn’t fork over the Oreos....

CLASSIC CARS by Bob Gelber
I know I must be getting old when I get more excited about the fuel economy of a 260mile-per-gallon Volkswagen hybrid than I do about a 268-mile-per-hour Bugatti super-fast sports car. Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is that the automotive world has gone hybrid crazy. Why, even diehard racers like Porsche and Ferrari have sent press releases out to tease automotive enthusiasts about future products with electric/gasoline propulsion. What has Toyota started with the rip-roaring sales success of their little Prius green baby? It may surprise you to know that hybrid motor vehicles have been around for over 100 years. In fact the famous automotive genius Dr. Porsche invented an electric/gas hybrid military truck that was used in great numbers during World War I. It had a single gas engine generator that powered four electric motors on each wheel. Just across Long Island Sound is Groton, Connecticut, and the Electric Boat Company, the most famous designer and builder in the world. All sub-
marines are hybrid powered, and Electric Boat has been building them since before World War II. Subs are probably the father of all big powered hybrids. When not turning a propeller, their large diesel engines charge up lead acid battery banks the size of about 10 Miatas. Just like a giant Prius, which these craft strangely resemble, they can run on battery or diesel power. Of course now all of our sub fleet has as its main power source an atomic power plant, but still uses battery power when submerged. Another hybrid that is familiar to all of you is the engine of the Long Island Railroad train, which takes a lot of you back and forth to the Hamptons. These massive machines have been around for decades and are diesel/electric hybrids, just like submarines. Obviously, they cannot run submerged. Today, there are many hybrid cars on the market, and many more on the horizon. General Motors has its Chevy Volt, which I’ve panned for many months. I’ve always felt it was too expensive to attain mass-market appeal, especially since logic says it was aimed at a public that was trying to save transportation money. At $41,000 it costs almost twice as much as a Toyota Prius and in reality gets only a little more miles per gallon on the highway. I believe it’s 60 mpg versus the Prius 50 mpg highway mileage. In all fairness to the Volt, it can go up to 50 miles on pure electric power, and the Prius cannot. So for short hops, the Volt is great. However, since it is built on basically a $16,000 Chevy Cruze chassis, it has been called a $16,000 car with a $25,000
battery. Sorry to be so hard on GM, but I’ve always felt the Volt was a public relations ploy to show how engineering savvy and green they were, and not to truly sell a hybrid car to the public. The king of hybrids is of course the Toyota Prius. The new one is much more handsome than the old one, although it takes a trained eye to tell the difference between the two. My only complaint is that in order to keep the price down Toyota has sacrificed a lot of build quality. When sitting inside one, it feels like sitting inside a flip-open cellphone. All plastic, all the time. It handles a lot better than the original, but let’s face it, it’s not a BMW. Still, it was designed to do what it does best, and that is to save you gas money. Simply put, it gets the best fuel mileage of any full hybrid car in the world. By the way, if you want a Toyota Prius that is nicely built, check out the new Lexus CT hatchback hybrid. I think it’s cool looking and very “Euro.” In fact it bears a bizarre resemblance to my old Lexus IS300 Sportcross wagon. The entire drive train is virtually the same as the Prius, so it’s no hot rod, but it does have a sport mode on the suspension setting and it handles quite well. It also only gets 42 mpg on the highway and costs about $10,000 more than a Prius. But hey, it’s a Lexus baby, and you’ll not only look green as in “tree-hugger” but green as in “my other car is a Mercedes.” Note: Don’t mention to the Lexus dealer that it has a Prius drive-train. Let that be a secret. Hybrids are here to stay, and this new Lexus shows me they are getting better and better.

exposes, with the help of Michael Malice (St. Martinâ€™s Press), the wild and weird requests heâ€™s had over the yearsâ€”top tix to Broadway shows, entree to exclusive restaurants, intimate massages, a bathtub filled with Godiva chocolateâ€”serving the â€œmillionaires, moguls and madmen,â€? rock stars and hedge fund superstarsâ€?ĂŽ who stay at top luxe hotels, condos and private clubs.

Crusoe, the Canine Castaway (Silogram Press) by East Hampton resident, speech/language therapist and childrenâ€™s book author Marion Margolis, with engaging illustrations by Nick Cordone (heâ€™s made Danâ€™s covers), may be for kids ages 4 to 8 (simple text, invitingly set), but for sure adults will enjoy the puns and allusions (â€œCall me Crusoe,â€? it begins). Crusoe, an Australian cattle dog, lives with the Robinsons. He falls overboard on one of their sailing sprees, winds up miraculously on an island and heroically saves a lost goat from an erupting volcano (â€œno kid left behindâ€?). A portion of the proceeds will be directed to the Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons.

Punte del Este calls itself â€œthe Hamptons of the South.â€? After lunch, shots of Grappamiel, the national drink of Uruguay were poured and the glasses clinked in a toast. Cigars were passed around. Punte del Este is famous as a classy winter resort with limousines, wealthy businessmen, beautiful women, fundraiser charity events, beaches, beautiful mansions, fashionable shops and sheep located on the Atlantic Ocean, just like us. COMMISSIONER ASPINALLâ€™S MESSAGE Itâ€™s been a wonderful week here at Hampton Subway. Itâ€™s always about this time that the weekly ridership rises to the 10,000 mark and this year, we got it there a week early thanks to the marketing wizardry of our new public relations director Rhoda Osmosis, recently hired away from the San Francisco BART Subway system. Rhoda put together a campaign of having Subway employees grab passerbys on the sidewalk above the subway entrances and herding them down through the turnstiles to board the trains. The campaign ended immediately upon our reaching the magic number of 10,000, but at the last minute, the entire Water Mill High School Bowling Team boarded with the sliding doors closing behind them, so in the end there were 10,009.

NORTH FORK North Fork Events OVER THE BARREL
by Lenn Thompson
Long Island wine country is gearing up for its busy season with a plethora of springtime events. Many of these events are similar â€“ â€œcome taste our wine, maybe get some food or listen to some musicâ€? â€“ but there are a few slightly different ones for slightly different reasons. First up is this weekendâ€™s Farmers and Artisans Market at Lenz Winery (lenzwine.com) from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday. The Earth Day-focused celebration will include delicious Lenz wines as well as early season produce and other foods, and hand-made crafts, from various East End artisans including: A Taste of the North Fork, Beepharm, Biophilia, Blossom Meadow Honey, Catapano Dairy Farm, Food for Forks, Garden Fusion, Home Grown Chocolates, Little Lexiâ€™s Bakery, Mecox Bay Dairy, Naturally Made by Susan, Pipes Cove Oysters, Sacred Sweets and Widows Hole Oyster Company. Weâ€™re lucky to have such a bounty of passionate producers locally â€“ get out and support them. Have you had the opportunity to taste many older Long Island wines? If not, youâ€™ve really got to check out the â€œLibrary Tasting hosted by Founding Winemaker Kip Bedellâ€? at Bedell Cellars (bedellcellars.com) on April 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $65 ($50 if youâ€™re a wine club member) and youâ€™ll taste a variety of older wines, including wines from the stellar 1993 and 1995 vintages, with one of Long Islandâ€™s iconic winemakers. The next day from 1 to 4 p.m., Peconic Bay Winery (peconicbaywinery.com) will co-host a charity wine event with Lacrosse for Autism and The New York Cork Report to benefit The Cody Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities at Stony Brook University. Lacrosse for Autism (lax4autism.com) is a local non-profit that raises money for autism research. Tickets for the event are $40 with a significant portion of that going directly to the charity. Attendees will enjoy an afternoon of $2 glasses of wine (every penny going to charity), wine-friendly nibbles by Luce + Hawkins, 10% off bottle purchases and access to a silent auction rife with New York wines from wineries like Channing Daughters Winery, Clovis Point, Heron Hill Winery, Hunt Country Vineyards, Jamesport Vineyards, Lamoreaux Landing Wine Cellars, McCall Vineyards, Martha Clara Vineyards, Palmer Vineyards, Raphael, Roanoke Vineyards, Robibero Family Winery, Sheldrake Point Vineyard, Shinn Estate Vineyards, Waters Crest Winery and Wolffer Estate. Luce + Hawkins and North Fork Table will donate restaurant gift certificates and Peconic Bay Winery will also donate $100 for every attendee who signs up for their wine club.

Get Ready, Get Set, Start Slowly Let’s start with the basics. I would say any red-blooded American owns at least one pair of running or walking sneakers. I believe in starting with an older pair of sneakers that have been worn before. As long as you can look at the sole of your sneaker and not see your socks, you can start with those. Begin training with one mile of a walking/running combination. If one mile is too much, then begin with a half-mile. Plan a route, and bring a watch so you can time your intervals. Start with five minutes of walking. Then try to jog for three minutes; then go back to walking again for five minutes; then back to jogging for three minutes. Continue this combination throughout your route; always end in walking for five minutes. When you reach the end it is imperative By Laura Mancuso The change of the season often brings out all the joggers and for many veteran runners it embarks the beginning of race season. It is truly a great time of year. For those of you who have always longed to run, this could be your year to set a new fitness goal. Maybe enter that 5K race that has been on your resolution list for years? I understand this could be intimidating for many people whose concept of running is only when chased. We’ve all been there, but even great runners had to start somewhere. Being an avid runner, I have done my fair share of local races, what I’ve always admired most about the sport is the fact that every able body can do it, and it only requires you, and a pair of sneakers. You don’t need to be a certain body type, a specific age or a major athlete. So for those of you who are ready, I am going to give you a crash course in how to get from the couch to a 5K race. Don’t be afraid; race season is long, it begins in April and ends in December with some fun holiday runs. Give yourself plenty of time to train, don’t focus on achieving the race with a certain time, just focus on finishing. And, if you feel running is completely out of the question, there is absolutely nothing wrong with walking your first 5K race.
that you stretch your muscles. This includes your quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and lower back. For those of you veteran runners who may be reading this, stretching applies to you too. Continue your walk/run combination every other day. In the weeks to follow, try to lengthen the jogging sessions and shorten the walking sessions. Work your way up to increasing your distance by half-mile increments, working your way up to 3.1 miles. Continue to train three days a week with a day of rest in between. Gradually work yourself up to continual jogging. Start with one mile, work yourself up to 1.5 miles and so on. Soon enough, you will be one of those joggers on the street that you used to envy. The key to this goal is simple; it is determination and visualiza(continued on next page)

We’re Running the 5-K (Okay, Maybe Walking), But We’re Doing It! Several of us here at Dan’s Papers are gearing up for the 33rd Annual Potatohampton 5K in Bridgehampton on June 4 to support the American Heart Association and the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation. We asked Laura Mancuso (article above), a certified trainer who manages Body Tech in Montauk, to help us (couch potatoes a plenty) to get in shape so we can strut our stuff. We don’t think we’re biased when we say that the Potatohampton is one of the most beautiful runs ever, beginning at Militia Park in Bridgehampton on Ocean Road. The entire race borders potato fields, farmland, mansions and horse stables. Runners will head toward the ocean, bank along Paul’s Lane to Halsey Lane, up to Hildreth Lane, with a final stretch along Hildreth back to Ocean Road. Registration is available online at danshampton.com or can be done the day of the race between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. The first 200 runners will receive a free T-shirt. We plan to warm up for Potatohampton by registering for and running in the American Heart Association’s Healing Heart 5K Run/Walk taking place Sunday, May 22 at Martha Clara Vineyards on the North Fork. 2616

tion. You need to keep at it so you can increase your endurance and let your body get used to your new sport. Then you need to see yourself running and completing your goal. Lastly, make sure you taper off the last week. Giving yourself a couple days off from training keeps your legs fresh for race day. People tend to stress over what to eat the night before and the morning of the race. Really, the best advice is to eat what you would normally eat while you were training; now is not the time to try out something new because a running article said a particular marathon runner eats that before a race. You donâ€™t want to test your digestive system on race day. The most important thing to remember is to have fun and enjoy the event. Good luck; see you

& HAMPTONS EPICURE Stacy Dermont
Faces on Your Food: Eggs Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Who cares? They’re BOTH delicious! When it comes to “local food” it doesn’t get more local than your own backyard. More and more people are keeping their own laying hens. Last year North Haven passed a law to allow chickens in residential areas; right now Sag Harbor Village is considering similar legislation. When did it become illegal to grow your own, on your own property? Sometime after people stopped traveling Bridgehampton’s Lumber Lane to gather cords of firewood from their woodlots, sometime after they stopped walking over to Butter Lane for their dairy products. Everything new is old. At long last it’s not just hip to eat local—it’s become popular and, hopefully, it will soon be the norm.
David Falkowski is the man with eggs.
Our local farmers are working hard to feed as many neighbors as they possibly can. David Falkowski of Open Minded Organics offers eggs year-round from his unmanned stand on Butter Lane. This summer he’ll also be offering his famous mushrooms, plus onions, salad greens, peas and more from a larger stand on the same site. He has just doubled the size of his flock to
200 hens. Some of them lay right behind the farm stand; others reside on the nearby family farm. I was in charge of letting the chickens out on my family’s farm when I was three years old. I also helped raise the chicks and gather the eggs from complaining hens. I’m pretty particular about my chicken eggs. What I like most about Falkowski’s eggs, in addition to their freshness, is that they are not matchy-matchy. They come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and textures. I like the look of the very freckly brown ones best, but the green-blue Araucana eggs are undeniably cool. The flock includes Rhode Island Reds, Welsummers, Black Sex Links and New Hampshire Reds. They’ve just been joined by some young Golden Comets and Barred Plymouth Rocks. Dale Haubrich and Betty Lacina live and work behind the Under the Willow farm stand on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike. Their hens also produce year-round. Right now the stand also offers fresh spring greens. Karen Bellemare tends her flock of 60 hens at Sunset Beach Farm outside Sag Harbor. Sunset Beach Farm’s eggs are coveted by their Community Supported Agriculture (C.S.A.) members. All of the farmers agree with the studies that show that happy chickens lay bigger, better eggs.

& ART COMMENTARY by Marion W. Weiss
“Expression: Four Painters” at Southampton Cultural Center The first thing that grabs you about the current exhibit at the Southampton Cultural Center is the title: “Expression: Four Painters.” At first glance, we think the show is called “Expressionism: Four Painters.” That happens if we aren’t paying much attention. The New York Times also labeled the exhibit “Expressionism,” but it’s probably not because someone was preoccupied. So what’s the problem besides the fact that “Expression” and “Expressionism” share a common root word? Is it because Expressionism is so much a part of the Hamptons’ artistic legacy we jump to conclusions or because, perhaps, we assume the two terms have similar meanings? Not so…there are definite differences. Expression is an abstract word, it seems to this critic, designating any form, act or process which manifests a thought, feeling or just about anything else on this planet. Expressionism is more concrete, a style applied primarily to the arts with delineated characteristics. Using this logic, we have to take curator Arlene Bujese at her word: the works’ styles don’t have to be “Expressionism” (although, in fact, they are), but
HONORING THE ARTIST by Marion W. Weiss
Adeline Heurteau Armed with just one suitcase and knowing not a soul, cover artist Adeline Heurteau arrived in Manhattan from her native France 10 years ago. Luckily she found a hotel for young women near Gramercy Park and enrolled in an art school. When she started training at the New York Academy of Art, she had even better luck; one of her teachers, John Wellington, became her mentor and best friend. Heurteau is still living in Manhattan, and she feels extremely lucky to have moved here. In fact, she wouldn’t want to be anyplace else. Q: Why do you like New York so much? I think you like it more than Paris. A: Paris never changes. You can go back in 10 years, and it’s still the same. But in Manhattan, it’s never the same. It’s the capital of the art world. It has so much energy and so do the people. I’m addicted to New York. Q: What about the people? Do they react differently to you here?
rather a unique and personal “Expression” from each person represented. (However, we can’t prove this to be the case in two out of the four artists here, since we aren’t familiar with their history.) Roy Nicholson’s paintings do have a literal history and do represent a figurative expression, stemming perhaps from his penchant for conveying a particular event, idea or emotion which he then turns into an image: a visual diary entry at the end of each day (or is it each week?). Not all of Nicholson’s series evoke this format. His earlier paintings, for example, manifest images of a glorious garden, although the viewer cannot always pick out the details of such a locale. There is a sense, however, of entering into a special place, a venue that is separated by some marker. The suggested background/foreground composition helps our moving from one area to another. Nicholson’s present pieces from his Gloaming Series remind this critic of those gardens, although again, the title is what attracts our attention. “Gloaming” means “twilight” or subtle shades thereof, like dark, decline and black; Nicholson’s one dark painting makes sense in that last regard. So does “decline” if we perceive that the gardens don’t look as fresh as we remember them in years gone by. Julie Small-Gamby’s works are also recurring expressions of materials that recall previous pieces. Small-Gamby’s mixed media, like oil and fabric, evoke a sense of texture and antiquity that is mesmerizing; her thick application of paint conveys the same impression as well. Yet it is the artist’s concept of history that is probably most expressive, her surfaces that look like fossils and archetypical shapes. Small-Gamby has indeed captured and preserved the earth’s development through millions of years, at least according to this critic. We cannot say for sure if Shari Abramson’s and
Danny Simmons’ paintings reflect a long-term commitment to their material and subject. We can assume they do so because their techniques are deft and distinct, their images confident and arresting. While Abramson’s colors are subtle and nostalgic, gently leading the viewer into the images, Simmons’ works draw attention to themselves with their bright colors and swirling shapes. It is clear that both artists take pleasure in expressing their dissimilar worldviews. The show at Southampton Cultural Center (25 Pond Lane, Southampton) will be on view until May 23. Call 631-287-4377 for hours.
A: When I show my work in Paris or even when I am painting outside, the people may be 35 or 40 years old, but they act like they’re 80. And they complain about everything. When I’m in the park in Paris, I see families with kids; they seem so sad. Here when I am drawing and sketching in the park, everyone comes over to see me and talk to me. Q: What was your life like in Paris before you came to America? A: I studied fashion design (I even won a prize for designing a wedding dress) and did a little bit of modeling, but I really wanted a job in drawing. But first, I went to the University for economics because my parents wanted me to have a real job. Q: Did art run in your family? A: My father was an architect, but he wanted to be a painter. His father took him to an art school, but they said he didn’t have artist’s hands. Q: He could be a sculptor with those hands. A: Yes, he did make sculptures, and he built his own boat, a schooner made out of wood. Q: How about your mother and sisters? A: My mother was happy to be a housewife and take care of her four daughters, but she made our clothes and was always interested in decorating the house. One of my sisters loves to paint, and I am teaching her. She has a cashmere boutique. Q: What kind of art training did you have in New York?
A: I went to the Art Students League and learned how to paint like the Old Masters. You have to learn the rules of art. I also took drawing classes at the National Arts Club. Q: Has your style always been more realistic than abstract? A: The cover image of a bunny, called “L’evasion” or escape, has a surreal influence. I am going with that style more now. It shows the most precious aspect of life. Q: How about your subject matter? Is that also changing? A: No, I like to paint in the Hamptons, especially Cedar Point; the nature reserve is so beautiful and private. So are the skies and the sunsets. I also like Sag Harbor because it’s not crowded. Coming to the Hamptons in the summer and living in New York is the best of both worlds. Q: But where else would you like to live and paint for awhile? A: British Columbia for the landscape and the skies. There’s an area in the southwest of France, too, where people are so nice. Q: What will the future be like? What will you be doing in five years? A: I will be a better painter, the more I paint. I know I am on the right path. Each day brings something better. Adeline Heurteau may be contacted through her email at: email@example.com or by calling 646-5912593.

& SIMPLE ART OF COOKING by Silvia Lehrer
When Sharon McKee, Assistant Editor of Dan’s Papers, shared with me her Easter holiday plans for a family brunch on Easter Sunday, I was inspired. The practical side of me took over with thoughts of buffet, and everyone bringing a prepared dish, made sense. Generally, the hosts at potluck dinners prepare the main course, which, for Easter, could be a roast leg of spring lamb or an Easter ham accompanied by buttery roast asparagus. Guests can bring an appetizer or two, a salad, or dessert. It is traditional for Italian families to serve a pasta course for Easter dinner. In fact, traditions abound for families at holiday time and certain dishes are expected to be part of the holiday meal. Sharon’s plan is to gather at her nephew’s home for Easter brunch “with some Italian specialties.” Here are recipes that can fit the bill, recipes that can be done ahead (including a salad made with leftover lamb which would require the guest to roast the lamb the day before), then easily transported to wherever the festivities take you. Have a Happy Easter!
RED ONION AND CHEESE FRITTATA While frittata is typically a snack in Italy, it makes an appropriate brunch dish. Serves 8 to 10 as appetizer 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 3 medium red onions, sliced paper-thin Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 7 large eggs, beaten 1/2 cup grated Pecorino 1. Heat the oils in a non-stick skillet and sauté the onions over medium heat, stirring occasionally until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a strainer over a bowl to catch the oil. Allow onions to drain well
and cool completely. Reserve drained oil. 2. Whisk eggs in a mixing bowl until yolks and whites are thoroughly combined. Add the cooled onions, salt, pepper and cheese and stir to mix. 3. Return 2 tablespoons of reserved oil to the skillet onions cooked in and heat gently. When hot pour in egg mixture. With a large wooden spoon release eggs from the edge of the pan, tilting pan slightly, as they begin to set. This allows some of the uncooked egg mixture to run into the edges. When eggs are set, and frittata is well-detached form bottom of pan, remove from heat. Wait to cool, then put a plate – a little larger than the skillet – face down over the pan. Hold the plate firmly, reverse pan and turn out frittata. 4. Return pan to medium heat with 1 tablespoon reserved oil. Carefully slide frittata into pan to cook other side. After 2 minutes, slide the frittata onto a serving dish. Can be made up to one day ahead. Refrigerate as necessary, or prepare several hours ahead and serve at room temperature. To serve, cut into narrow wedges. DEVILED EGGS ITALIAN STYLE Italian parsley, garlic and olive oil are the holy trinity that goes into these stuffed eggs. Makes 12 deviled eggs.

SIDE DISH by Aji Jones
6 large eggs 1 clove garlic, finely chopped 3 to 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 1/8 teaspoon paprika plus more for garnish 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley Parsley leaves for garnish, optional 1. Place eggs in a saucepan of cold water. Slowly bring to the edge of a boil (don’t allow eggs to boil) then immediately adjust heat to a simmer and cook the eggs for 12 minutes. Drain carefully and run the eggs under cold water. I crack the eggs on the side of the sink to remove the shells. Transfer to a board and, when cool, halve the eggs lengthwise. 2. Carefully remove the yolks from the whites and place the whites cut sides up on a plate. Meanwhile press the yolks through a sieve over a bowl or mash well with a fork. Add the garlic, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, pepper and paprika, and with a wooden spoon, stir to mix to thoroughly combine. Add remaining olive oil as needed until mixture is smooth. Taste to adjust seasoning as necessary. 3. Using a teaspoon or pastry bag, carefully fill the whites with the yolk mixture mounding the tops. Sprinkle tops with a bit more paprika and chopped parsley garnish, if desired. Deviled eggs can be prepared up to one day ahead and refrigerated covered in a suitable container. Arrange on an attractive platter and bring to room temperature before serving.

Dan’s Papers April 22, 2011 danshamptons.com Page 59
LETTERS HELP MIABELLE Dear Dan, My wife and I have been readers of Dan’s Papers for several years. We have family members with summer homes located on the East End who introduced us to your publication. Over the years we have come to rely on your colorful periodical for witty editorials, current events and culinary navigation. Our friends Oliver and Vanessa Gillier have been blessed with twin daughters, Miabelle and Noellie. Unfortunately Miabelle has been afflicted with a very rare genetic disorder known as Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis or H.L.H for short. This defect requires Miabelle to receive a bone marrow donation. Our friends have had to relocate to a children’s hospital in Cincinnati so their daughter can be kept in isolation and receive periodic chemotherapy. Miabelle is a rare genetic type that has made finding a match an arduous task to say the least. I am providing links to a blog site Miabelle’s parents have created for her. It is: http://miabellegillier.blogspot.com/ and savemiabelle.org. The site provides information on H.L.H, periodic updates on Miabelle’s condition and information on bone marrow donation. I am respectfully requesting that you please either post these links on your website or provide them in an issue of your paper. You have a broad and compassionate audience who could provide critical assistance. The stress on my friends has been tremendous. They have shown great poise and composure throughout this ordeal, one that would have left me broken and prostrate at the onset. As my wife and I open an issue of your paper this spring, we will cheerfully scan the pages searching for excursions that we can enjoy with our twin girls. While I am reading, I will also be thinking about my friends who are wondering if their little girl will survive until the fall. Sincerest thanks. David L. Rosiak Mineola GEISS’ VICE Dear Dan, This is in response to Gunther Geiss’ April 15 letter regarding the Southold Animal Shelter, and why he questions its winning a Dan’s North Fork Best of the Best Award. Gunther Geiss’ wife lost an election 10 years ago to run the shelter. Think that might be foremost on his mind as he attempts to be a one-man wrecking crew? Geiss has advocated taking blankets away from dogs, letting them get used to sleeping on concrete floors, etc. His basic lack of compassion for animals, combined with his attacks on true animal caregivers, is both pitiable and reprehensible. Geiss cannot stand the idea that the Southold Animal Shelter won the Best of the Best Award. That’s not fair, he thinks. Why, anyone with enough friends can win that award. How many friends do you think a man taking blankets away from a puppy has? Justin Porter Riverhead BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS Dear Dan, There is another way for Mayor Bloomberg to bridge New York City’s looming multibillion-dollar budget gap based upon his perceived shortfalls in assistance from both Albany and Washington, rather than bringing back a non-resident commuter tax on Long Island taxpayers. Most have forgotten the great idea put forward by the team of Norman Mailer/Jimmy Breslin in the 1969 Democratic mayoral primary. They proposed

making New York City the 51st state. Consider the historic imbalance of tax dollars going to both Albany and Washington versus how much state and federal assistance accompanied by excessive unfunded mandates and requirements for spending these monies received in return, Big Apple residents would be better off keeping funds sent to Albany. Two U.S. senators could insure a more equitable return of federal assistance to New York City. Sincerely, Larry Penner Great Neck HAPPIEST MEMORIES Dear Dan, I worked at the Sag Harbor Inn when they were making Mr. Spielberg’s Boat and the cast of young hopefuls stayed there. They were a fun, polite group that also included Tracee Ellis-Ross (Dianna Ross’ daughter) and Andrew Lauren (Ralph’s son). Also, Jim True-Frost and Ed Newburn. Dan Futterman and Jim were my favorites. None of us had ever heard of Jennifer Connelly, except for Eugene Casey (of The Lone Sharks) who also worked there. He was very excited that he was going to meet Miss Connelly, he was probably her number one fan at the time. All these actors have gone on to better movies and have appeared on television many times. Thanks, Dan, for reminding me of some of my fun Hampton times! Judith St Laurent Southampton
(e-mails only, please) THIS IS NEWS? Dear Dan, The imminent departure of anchor Ms. Katie Couric in the end may not have any impact on the ratings for CBS Evening News. Previous generations grew up around the television set, learning about events of the day. Everyone had their favorite: Walter Cronkite, Roger Mudd, Dan Rather and Bob Schaffer (CBS); Chet Huntley and David Brinkley or Tom Brokaw (NBC); and Harry Reasoner, Barbara Walters and Peter Jennings (ABC). Today’s generation has many more alternatives to select from including all news radio, cable new stations such as CNBC, CNN and FOX, PBS, BBC, the Internet and bloggers. A growing population of new immigrants supports their own television stations. Local ABC, CBS and NBC affiliates have access to satellite broadcasts that duplicate many of the same stories carried by their national news broadcasts. Even local independent stations such as News 12 Long Island, and others have access to satellite feed. Many local news stations sometimes send reporters to other parts of the nation and world for coverage. Our view of the world has changed over time. This may be due to the Big Three Networks no longer having a monopoly on the news. New anchors may not make a difference in who tunes in. How fortunate we are to live in a free society with a wealth of information news sources to select from. Sincerely, Larry Penner Great Neck
POLICE BLOTTER Barn Fire A barn fire broke out in Water Mill on the Halsey Farm. The barn was a total loss, but thankfully nobody was injured. Four fire departments on the East End responded to the blaze. Problem Child A mother in East Hampton called police after she became fed up with her teenage son smoking pot in his bedroom. When police arrived, they approached the son’s bedroom with a stiff knock on the door. The teenager was caught with a significant quantity of marijuana on his person and police moved in to arrest him. When police told him that he was under arrest, the young man began to resist and fought with the police officers, yelling and screaming. Officers had to hold him down and handcuff him before they took him away to jail. Wowzers. Stopped A man in Southampton was pulled over for driving in the middle of the night with no headlights on. Police who pulled him over also noticed that the man had no functioning brake lights and that the car was un-inspected, unregistered and did not have insurance. While being arrested the man was quoted saying, “Yeah, that really was pretty stupid.” Shelter Island Old Man McGumbus, 96, and former World War II sniper specialist, was walking down Main Street on Shelter Island picking up his weekly subscription to Guns and Ammo from his Post Office Box and dropping off his weekly handwritten letter to President Obama, when he suddenly became alerted to the presence of a hippie. McGumbus was awestruck by the hipster before him. Skinny jeans, check. Tight tshirt with a Beatles’ logo on it, check. But unlike a
normal hippie who averages between 18 and 30 years old, this was an old-man hippie, a rare sight on Shelter Island, who was possibly 65 years of age or more. Shocked McGumbus found himself scared and confused. Who was this hippie old guy before him? Without time to react the old hippie drew a guitar from his station wagon and actually started PLAYING right in front of Old Man McGumbus. Dizzy, sweaty, angry, McGumbus raced toward his Jeep in order to grab his Remington 870 12-gauge shotgun, but tripped over the old-man hippie’s dog, a Chihuahua, sending him crashing head first into the pavement below. McGumbus was awoken by the very same dog licking his face. Gaining his wits about him, McGumbus began to crawl toward his Jeep and was heard stating repeatedly, “Those hippies. THOSE DAMN HIPPIES!!!!” before eventually passing out from exhaustion. He was rescued by the Shelter Island Fire Department. Completely Violated A woman, while at a party in Wainscott, reported to police that a man had reached up her shirt and grabbed her by her breast while she was at the party. She then stated that the same man followed her into a bathroom and tried to kiss her at which time she pushed him away and went to sleep in a bedroom that she was sleeping in at her friends house who was throwing the party and where she was spending the weekend. The man then yet again, walked into her room and climbed into bed with her, attempting to kiss her again. She then called the police and the man was arrested. Let’s hope this guy gets put behind bars for a long, long time – David Lion Rattiner
