Watch the Skies Plovers Arriving. Let’s Herd them to their Designated Beaches By Dan Rattiner This is the time of year that the piping plovers, small birds on the endangered species list, arrive at the beaches in the Hamptons to set up their little nests for the summer. Until this year, nobody could ever tell which beaches the plovers would choose for their nests. It was an important thing for us humans here on the ground to know because whichever beaches the plovers chose would immediately be located by naturalists and encircled by snow fencing to keep everybody away. Whole beaches got closed off this way. Go inside the fence and you would be arrested. Penalties could be a fine or a jail sentence. There is no fooling around when it comes to protecting endangered species. When all this began, back in the mid 1990s, everybody thought it was cute. The plovers really were few and far between then. There would be one or two places fenced off somewhere along our 60 miles of beach. The fences did encircle the nests, but you could walk or drive around them, and even see the cute little fellas from a distance of 50 or 100 feet. Now, however, we have an infestation of plovers. There are hundreds of nests, and as many as 1,000 little monsters and their brats.
One out of every 10 beaches is off limits here in the summertime now. For the last three years, the Fourth of July fireworks at Main Beach in East Hampton have had to be postponed because of piping plovers. Sometimes beach weddings have to be relocated. And in some areas, where the plover nests go from the back of the dunes all the way down to near the water, the fencing now runs from the back of the beach all the way down to the water’s edge,
This year, however, things are different. Back in March, the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service designated only two specific beaches for the plovers. They are off limits for humans from April to August. One is on the beach at Peconic Bay, at Jessup Neck and the adjacent Elizabeth J. Morton Preserve in Noyac, and the other is a one half mile section of beach along the ocean halfway between Two Mile Hollow Beach in East Hampton and Indian Wells Beach in Amagansett. Because of this change, some spirited citizens have formed a group called the “Plover Guidance Rangers.” Based out of a so far unrented private mansion on a beach in Mecox, which twice in the last four years has had its beachfront be home to plovers, the leaders of this group are turning the plover preservation rule upside down and sideways. “We now have two beaches preserved exclusively for plovers,” said co-founder Ed Nelson, of Water Mill. “Our goal is to guide all the plovers, which are now on their migration north, to the beaches set aside for them.” He looked at me sternly. “This is a good thing to do. It’s where the law wants them.” According to Norton, there are now nearly 4,000 members of the Plover Guidance
We have an infestation of plovers; hundreds of nests, as many as 1,000 little monsters & their brats. essentially blocking everybody. And yet, the law remains. Those deciding about the plover rules work out of an air conditioned office building in Washington, D. C. They wouldn’t know a plover if they saw one. They probably don’t even know that by the time they allow the people to use these beaches again — after the plovers have flown away — the summer is over.

Rangers. Upon registration, which can be done at the PGR Web site, members are issued red caps and vests. “The annual membership fee, which is $150, includes the hat and vest. We haven’t had an objection yet. Plovers hate anything red. They relate it to their species predator, the red fox, of which there are very few here in the Hamptons, unfortunately.” Nelson is not advocating that there be more. But he is advocating that his Rangers be ready for what he says is “game day,” the day coming sometime in the next few weeks when all the plovers arrive up above the Hamptons and start looking down for the beaches where they intend to make their nests. He showed me banks of computers with vol-
unteers sitting at them, watching for signs of the plover arrival in the Plover Guidance Ranger headquarters’ living room. There were other Rangers with binoculars on an exterior deck looking out over the dunes. It wasn’t hard to figure out what this was all about. On the back wall of the living room was a big banner reading THEY’VE GOT THEIRS. WE’VE GOT OURS. I asked him about that. “It’s a bit complicated. I’ll get to that later.
But for now, let me show you something.” He walked me over to one of the computers being used by a man introduced to me as Hal. “Based on where the plovers are now in their migration,” he said, indicating blips on the computer, “we expect ‘game day’ to be either April 26, 27 or 28 this year.” On ‘game day,’ he said, all the captains of Plover Guidance Rangers will alert all the other Rangers by e-mail and order everyone to don hats and vests, get pots and wooden spoons from their kitchens and, for the next 12 hours, stand out on the beaches banging the pots and directing the arriving plovers to Noyac and Amagansett. Nelson looked at his watch, and then glanced at the screen. “Right now, we think the call will go out the day after tomorrow,” he said. This reporter asked Nelson how he expected piping plovers, which are up in the sky several hundred feet, to be able to see where they are being herded. “We’re getting signage — giant black cardboard arrows and you know those neon signs that the police have alongside some of the roads that tell you your speed?” I told him I did. “We’re working on getting all the police departments to allow us to take them out to the beaches on ‘game day,’ where we can reprogram them with the best information.” “Like what?” “8.3 MILES TO AMAGANSETT BEACH, THAT WAY,” he said. I asked him if he thought the towns and villages would approve of their actions on ‘game day.’ “We won’t be doing anything illegal,” he said. “I’ve talked to a few officials about this informally. There’s no law against everybody going down to the beaches, except that we need some gathering permits, and we’ve already gotten them, although we have not filled in the dates yet. I mean, everybody has been very nice. Everybody wants to save the plovers and get them over to their beaches. And everybody wants all the rest of us, summer people and locals, surfers and sport fishermen and volleyball players and sunbathers, to be able to use all the other beaches. They have theirs. We have ours.” He pointed to the sign on the wall and smiled. “I get it,” I said. “I’ve already spoken at several Chamber of Commerce meetings. They’re all on board,” he said. “Anything else you want to tell our readers?” I asked. “Just go to our Web site and sign up. And watch the skies. Save the piping plovers! And oh, one other thing: If you don’t want to join the Rangers, join the Rangers Auxiliary. We’re here 24/7. We could use pizza and Coke and maybe a cheesecake. We need all the help we can get.”

Owning a Restaurant Sometimes You Wonder: What Is the Upside of That? By Dan Rattiner A prominent restaurateur in the Hamptons was arrested last week and charged with having written $300,000 in checks that bounced. According to the restaurant owner, he, like many other restaurateurs in these parts, was struggling to make it through the current economic downturn by taking a loan. As normal banking sources had all dried up, he had gone elsewhere, in particular, to a man in the “concrete construction” business, who people told him could make a $300,000 loan. The terms were harsh and the interest high. But he got the money. But then, when the time came to pay back the loan, he told the man he wasn’t
yet ready. The man insisted. And then he said if the restaurateur couldn’t pay him, he wanted the keys to the place. So in that circumstance, the restaurateur wrote a check on an account that had insufficient funds to cover the amount. He was, he said after being arrested, sort of forced to do it to get out of there. The restaurateur now says he has made other arrangements for his restaurant and it should be open in time for the Memorial Day weekend. We know who this man is. A lot of people in the business know who he is. But out of respect for the fact that he has not yet had his day in court and considering the fact that these are
very hard times to obtain financing and people can get pretty desperate, we will not reveal his name unless things get worse. Personally, I would go nuts if I ever ran a restaurant. There are crazy cooks, cranky customers, long hours, bills to pay and all kinds of other stuff. On the other hand, owning a restaurant has always appealed to me, at least as a dream. Imagine, Dan’s Bar and Grille. I’d serve burgers and fries, wild salads, desserts designed like sculptures or bits of modern architecture, and special drinks with umbrellas in them. And people would love me. A long time ago, I actually did own a restau(continued on next page)
APRIL REMINDS US OF WHY WE LOVE THE SEASONS By Dan Rattiner Some people enjoy living in Southern California where the sun always shines, the flowers are always in bloom and one day is just like another. I am not one of those people, and as a case in point, I offer the month of April. Here in the Hamptons, April is a month of anticipation. Winter still lingers, sometimes bringing with it additional and unexpected cruel blows, particularly at the start. But by the middle of the month, spring starts to stir. It might be the just the buds of the gladiolas in the ground on the town green. It might just
be a sunny day where you can throw off your jacket and breathe the warmth in the air as the earth wakes up from its long sleep. It might be the surprise of still not seeing leaves on the trees. There is always a day in April that is 75 degrees, when everyone has a spring in their step. And yet the trees, cold and brittle, still remain lifeless and barren — a strange counterpoint to what the sky and the birds and the animals and our own hearts tell us. Here in the middle of April, with thousands upon thousands of trees in our special universe, it seems absolutely impossible that by
Memorial Day, just 45 days from now, all will be green and lush and in full bloom for the arrival of the summer visitors. But in this very special landscape, it will happen. What also will happen is the arrival of billions and billions of tons of sand on our 60 miles of beaches. At this time, our beaches are still bereft strips of flotsam and jetsam, with only whisps of sand. But in just 45 days, a miracle will take place. The sand will arrive, not by the truckload, but by the invisible action of the sea, with tons of it washing up onto the shore every day at high tide and not (continued on page 36)

rant. It happened by accident. Few people knew. But it gave me a bit of a whiff of what such a thing would be like. I was completely overwhelmed by the idea and soon extricated myself from the situation. I had sold an ad in Dan’s Papers to a man who owned a restaurant in Sag Harbor on the site where Il Cappuchino is today. He seemed like a perfectly ordinary sort of man. Apparently I misjudged him. The ad, for about $1,000, ran. He seemed happy with it. But when it came time to pay me, he demurred. Try me again in a week, he said. The place was bustling with business. For the rest of the summer, I tried collecting the $1,000 from him. Each time, he put me off. Come back tomorrow. I might have something for you in two weeks. In late autumn he closed for the winter, still owing me the money. The following summer, softhearted fellow that I was, I sold him more advertising for another $1,000. He told me how much good the ad had done him. He’d have both last year’s $1,000 and this year’s $1,000 in the bank before Labor Day and he’d pay me then. It was a busy summer and I went over to the place a few times to eat. It was an Italian menu, and both the food and service were good. The second time we ate there, he came over to speak to my wife and me at the end of the meal and I reported to him that the experience was just fine. It was all very lovey dovey and friendly. And I was paying my restaurant bill as I was supposed to at the end of the meal. But Labor Day came and went, and he still
had not written me a check. He was still nice about it. He said he’d pay me later in the fall when all the money owed to him was paid. I thought about that after I left. Exactly what did that mean? Money owed? I thought the rule of thumb in the restaurant business was that in the interval after the end of the meal and before you left the restaurant, you paid for what you ate. Finally, I came to the conclusion I had to press the matter. I called him up and told him I would have to go to small claims court if he didn’t pay me within a week. He seemed startled by that, but he said he understood. He didn’t blame me. When no check arrived, reluctantly, I went to Town Hall and filled out the paperwork for a small claims court matter of $2,000, copies of which the court sent to him. I got a date in court. And I showed up. When he didn’t and therefore did not answer when the bailiff called his name out, the judge ruled in my favor. It was called a default judgment. I called him up and told him what I had done and again he said he didn’t blame me. And again he said a check would be on the way, which, again, it wasn’t. And so, after a month passed without any further contact with him, I went back to court and told the judge, and he ruled that the judgment should be turned over to the sheriff. The sheriff would collect the money. Honestly, this was the first occasion when things had gone so far that they had to be turned over to a sheriff.
Curious, I asked to meet with the particular sheriff who would be doing this. I got his phone number, and called him. “I will go over there and, with the judgment, ask for the money,” he said. “And if he doesn’t pay me, I will ask a second time a week later. And if he still doesn’t pay me, I will arrange for an auction of the restaurant. The judge will set a date.” As you have probably guessed, it came to that. The date was October 11, the week before Columbus Day that year. I asked the sheriff if I really needed to be there and he said no. “If someone buys it, the first $2,000 would go to you. I will collect the money for you. After that, there will be a new owner at the restaurant. You don’t have to be there for all of that.” Before the auction, considering the owner of the restaurant knew about all of this, I really expected to find a check in the mail. He was open and in business. But no check came. When the phone rang on the day of the auction, I had totally forgotten about the matter. I wasn’t going. It wasn’t in my appointment book. Yet there was the phone call. “We just had the auction,” the Sheriff said. “But nobody bid. So that is that.” “What do you mean?” I asked. “Well, you get to buy the restaurant for the $2,000 he owes you if you want. Do you want to do that?” “I guess so.” “Well, come on down to the courthouse and sign the papers.” (continued on page 26)

Sacrifice? Offerings? Tributes? Love Thy Neighbor? ‘Tis the Season By Dan Rattiner “And so this shank bone of the lamb represents the sacrificial lamb that in ancient times was offered up to the Almighty God, the creator of the Universe, Blessed be He.” I heard this a lot over the holiday weekend just past. And I wondered about this business of sacrifice. I don’t clearly understand the idea of slaughtering something and presenting it to the Almighty as a sacrifice. Also, if it is such an important thing, then why do we just hold up the shank bone to show how they used to do it? Why don’t we just do it? And if we are not going to do it, what is God going to think?
Surely, it is an important thing. The modern era, which frowns on sacrificing living things, goes back only about 2,000 years. But before that, practically everybody was sacrificing to the gods. Considering that man has been on this planet for two million years, that means that for 1,998,000 of them, humans were making sacrifices to deities. But in the last 2,000 years, we — in the Jewish and Christian religions anyway — only talk about how they used to do it. As I said, this seems like a risky business. I have personally seen sacrifices. Many years ago, when Dan’s Papers shut down in the fall and reopened in the spring, I would take my
family and travel somewhere interesting in the winter. One winter, we lived in a house we rented in the mountain town of Panajachel, Guatemala. You could take a bus on switchback roads further up the mountain to the town of Solola. And about halfway up, there was a bus stop where, if you wanted to, you could get out, walk down a gravel path on the cliff face and go into the witchdoctor’s cave. He wasn’t there the time we did that, but inside the cave, way in the back, there was a shrine to a deity, and in front of it were the offerings and sacrifices of the local citizenry. I (continued on page 34)
PROTESTING IN SOUTHAMPTON, RE-EXAMINED By Dan Rattiner Last Tuesday, Tom Wedell did what he has done practically every working day for the past year and a half, which is to drive his SUV 40 miles from his home in East Moriches to the Southampton 7-Eleven on County Road 39 to spend the day harassing and protesting against the undocumented immigrants. The immigrants are there, usually about 20 of them, outdoors on Aldrich Lane, standing peacefully by the side of the road on the public sidewalk hoping to be picked up for a day’s work. This Tuesday, however, was different.
Around 11 a.m., somebody smashed the window of Wedell’s SUV and stole one of his signs. It read DEPORT ILLEGALS. “If they think that by breaking my mirrors and windows they can stop me from coming here,” he said, “they’ve got another thing coming. They can go to hell. I am here exercising my constitutional rights as a loyal American.” According to Wedell, he had parked his car at the South Fork Realty parking lot, which is just to the east of the 7-Eleven. No immigrants congregate there. He had walked around in front of the 7-Eleven with another of his signs, and was down the block on North
Sea Road, on the far side of the 7-Eleven, at Aldrich Lane, where these Spanish speaking people usually wait, when whatever happened, happened back where he parked his car. Wedell is 49-years-old, formerly in the roofing business, and a fine American worker who feels these immigrants have taken jobs away from loyal Americans, thereby putting him and others out of work. Rumors abound that he is being paid by a union to be out protesting, but he claims not. He says nobody pays him to be out there. He does it on his own (continued on page 30)

By Gordin & Christiano The East Hampton Grace Estate overlooking the Northwest Harbor is a secluded tract of 300 acres bordering Cedar Point Park and a 517acre nature preserve. This isolated spot, with only 30 homes, is about as far as one can get from civilization in East Hampton. But here, in a rambling French chateau on over four acres, is where Broadway producers Stewart F. Lane and his wife, Bonnie Comley have called their second home. “For the past eight years we have moved our entire family (five children and pets) here for the entire summer,” said Comley. “We met almost 16 years ago, when I interviewed Stew for a cable show on travel that I was hosting.” For almost 10 of the dozen years they’ve been married, the couple has been working together professionally. “We alternate between theater projects, which I gravitate to, and film or television projects, which Bonnie often prefers,” said Lane. “But we never stop working. We act as a sounding board for each other and are quick to shoot down stuff.” Often this results, he said, “in the other pleading their case. And in the process we refine what we believe will work.” “We work 24/7 and could find ourselves talking about tickets sales in the middle of the night,” added Comley. As a tribute to their accomplishments, Comley and Lane were honored in February at the Drama League’s annual star-studded benefit gala at the Rainbow Room. The black-tie event, “A Musical Celebration of Broadway,” was hosted by Tony winners Donna Murphy and Julie White. It highlighted Lane and Comley’s illustrious careers, as well as Broadway productions led by alumni of the Drama League Directors Project. “The evening was dazzling fun,” said Comley. In person, the Broadway power duo is casual, down to earth and outgoing. Lane is known as the self-proclaimed “Mr. Broadway,” a veteran of scores of major shows. “I began in 1979 and have produced many West End (London) productions,” he said. Their original Broadway musicals and revivals are invariably nominated for Tony and Drama Desk Awards, as well as Olivier Awards when mounted in England. “Five of our shows have won Tony Awards,” said Comley. Those include La Cage Aux Folles (1984), The Will Rogers Follies (1991), Thoroughly Modern Millie (2002), their joint productions of Jay Johnson: The Two and Only (2006), and the current hit, The 39 Steps, last season’s winner of the 2007 Tony and Drama Desk Awards for unique theatrical experience.
Stewart F. Lane, Bonnie Comley, Producers
Put on a Show, published last year, has recently been released as a ‘how to’ on DVD from Working Arts Library.” Besides their work projects, Lane and Comley raise their family — five children ranging in age from 2 1/2 year-old twins, Lenny and Frankie, to 24-year-old Eli, their eldest daughter who aspires to be a director. The middle children are daughters Harly, a senior in high school, and 11-yearold, Leah. “We bought our home to encourage togetherness,” said Comley. “We make it our home and office for the entire summer, because we like to keep the family together and travel together as much as possible.” Lane’s and Comley’s passion for theater and life drive them as they navigate what must be quite a bumpy road. Yet they always appear upbeat and colorful, with an enthusiasm that is contagious. The two are larger than life, in the best possible ways. At over six feet tall, Lane has an ever welcoming smile and an extended hand. Comley is a smart articulate woman with a keen sense of humor. “Bonnie is a bit more risky than myself. I tend to be more conservative. But our spirits balance each other,” Lane said. “We share similar tastes,” Comley added. But there’s always the question of how life partners work out business challenges and conflicts. “Our biggest challenge is deciding exactly what project to take on and when. When we are working in theater, Bonnie will more readily defer to me and I will more readily defer to her when we work in television,” Lane explained. “There is a documentary on horses that Bonnie wants to finish, but that’s on the back burner at the moment. We hope to have a rough cut very soon.” “Our top priority right now is Stormy Weather,” said Lane. “The musical is based on the life of Lena Horne, and stars Leslie Uggams as the mature Horne. The show is a memory piece with Lena looking back over her life while facing a major decision.” The musical, which opened on January 30 at the Pasadena Playhouse in California and received positive notices, includes classic songs by Cole Porter, Harold Arlen & Johnny Mercer, Rodgers & Hart, Jerome Kern, Billy Strayhorn and others. Back from a trip out West to check up on the show’s progress, Lane was excited. “The evening was running long, but the show is an embarrassment of riches and will be trimmed considerably,” he said, explaining that this was all a part of the process of out of town tryouts. The show was extended through March 15 and the two are enthusiastic about bringing it to Broadway — something they both agree on.
”We work 24/7 and could find ourselves talking about ticket sales in the middle of the night.” (The show moved to the Helen Hayes Theater.) This past season, they produced Stephen Sondheim’s Sunday in the Park with George, and the musical Legally Blonde, with Laura Bell Bundy, which ran almost 600 performances. “We also produced a brief Broadway run of Cyrano de Bergerac (with Kevin Kline and Jennifer Garner) for the PBS series ‘Great Performances,’ where it aired last month,” said Comley. Lane, a co-owner of the Palace Theater with the Nederlander Organization since the early 1980s, had other achievements. In December, he hosted on Liza’s at the Palace, the smash hit, limited run star turn by Liza Minnelli that paid tribute to her marvelous godmother, Kay Thompson. Comley added, “Stew’s book, Let’s

I was really astounded by this. I had no idea one possible outcome was that I could own the restaurant. What, for heaven’s sakes, did that mean? “You don’t own the building,” the Sheriff explained. “He leases the space. So you own everything in it. The kitchen equipment, the utensils, the dishes, the tables and chairs, the checkered tablecloths. The sign out front. Even the cash register. You own it all.” “So I own it?” “I just told you that.” “So I could go down there and collect the money from the cash register every night?” “It’s up to you. You collect the money. You pay the bills. But you would have to start it with a new corporation. You don’t want all this guy’s debts. Maybe he wants to stay. He would work for you. Anyway, it’s yours.” Oddly, the first thing I thought was that what I ought to do is put an ad in Dan’s Papers advertising the menu. Ads worked. Come meet the new owners. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought I’d rather not own a restaurant. I’d be truly clueless how to run it. So that meant, and I confirmed this with the sheriff, I could clean the place out of everything in it I owned and auction it off for whatever I could get for it.
That night, I took a deep breath and called the restaurant. The owner, as he always did, cheerfully answered the phone with the name of the place. Slowly and carefully, I went about explaining to him what the sheriff had told me. I got the impression that he had not fully grasped that concept until just this moment.
“Should I come down there with a truck?” I asked. There was a long silence. “Come on down on Sunday night. I’ll pay you the $2,000,” he finally said. “Tell you what,” I said. “I’ll be home most of Sunday. Here’s my number. When you’ve got the money together that evening, call me, and I will come over and you can give it to me. Then I won’t take all the furniture.” “Okay,” he said. Sunday was in three days. During the interval, it tickled me that I owned a spaghetti house in Sag Harbor. It was kind of bragging rights, I know. But it was also true. I told a few people. Sunday came, and at 5 in the afternoon, he called me. Dinner is on me, he said, and I have an envelope for you. And I want to advertise with you again next year. “All of what you owe?” “Yup. The whole thing.” My wife and I went at 7, and as we sat down, he came over with an envelope with 20 $100 bills in it. “Thanks for being patient,” he said. As promised, there was no bill.

A Sea Change in Southampton Politics? at a recent event at the Southampton Inn. The question is: How will Republican Heaney working for a Democrat instruct his closest supporters come next November? When asked about this, Jay Schneiderman said that he himself has “good days and not as good days” in his relationship with the County Executive. On the subject of Heaney’s appointment by Levy, he commented, “It was unusual development.”
Schneiderman, who is typically candid and straightforward with his answers, stressed that he cares about the East End of Long Island, and politics come second to doing what is best for the county. He hopes to get support from all quarters of the political landscape because he believes it’s time for citizens to simply vote for the best candidates up for elections. Linda Kabot
(continued on page 30)
By T.J. Clemente The political winds of the 2009 local Southampton elections are already swirling as the town gets ready for the all important “Summer Season.” With the local Democratic Party growing in both registration and active participation, change is clearly in the air. Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman, himself in a unique situation of being a former Republican stalwart for years then declaring himself an independent for an array of reasons, believes that, “Supervisor Linda Kabot is not to be underestimated.” He admitted that the budget problems, the mood of frustration of the country (let alone the county), as well as confusion and fear are creating a political climate where anything is possible. Among those possibilities is a Democratic sweep of the Southampton Town Board — or even the opposite because there is so much “uncertainty.” Schneiderman has confidence in the will of the people this year to look beyond the “party affiliation and pick the best candidates.” (Of course he may feel this way running as an independent without a nomination from the Republican or Democratic Parties.) Southampton Town Democratic Chairman Gordon Herr sees it from a somewhat more partisan view. “I am so encouraged by the almost 3-1 new Democratic vs. Republican Party registrations I’m seeing monthly,” he said. Although the date for the selection of candidates to run for Supervisor and other board seats has not been chosen, Herr is confident that “change is coming to Southampton.” He stressed that the present administration is weakest on its ability to laser in on what it is spending daily, weekly and yearly, and that in these times of fiscal uncertainties those vagaries are no longer tolerable let alone prudent. Herr believes the efforts of the Democratic board members — led by the shining wisdom of Anna ThroneHolst, an expert on finance — will be most salient in the November elections. “Anna is leading the way, working diligently to bring order and structure to the process,” Herr said. “She would make a strong Supervisor candidate because she is bright, honest, experienced and popular. Sally Pope has been right there with her.” Schneiderman concedes that Throne-Holst would be a strong candidate, but stresses, “So much can happen between now and November. Linda Kabot is capable, and it’s been quite a while since the Democratic Party has had control of the Board.” In the last election, the incumbent Republican Patrick Heaney was narrowly defeated by the resolute Republican Linda Kabot. In a bizarre twist, Heaney is now working for the County in a job offered to him by Suffolk County Executive Steven Levy — a Democrat. In fact, they seem to have formed a mutual admiration society, judging by the way they spoke of each other

The Sheltered Islander Pirates in Training Pirate Trainee: “I don’t know, I just don’t know if boarding vessels and taking hostages off of Shelter Island will work.” Pirate Boss: “I told you, this is a business. As with any business plan, you start small and build. Here we find this nice little island, lots of boats, it’s perfect for us to get some on-the-job training. We’ll polish our techniques here and hit Nantucket next.” Trainee: “What’s going to be our signature?” Boss: “What are you talking about?” Trainee: “You know, a signature, so people know it’s us as opposed to just any random group of pirates. Pirates used to wear an eye patch or have a parrot, that was their signature. We need something like that. Maybe we could wear red tee shirts with a skull and crossbones or something. My cousin can make them for us for like, $10 each.” Boss: “I never thought of that, but we could deduct those costs as marketing materials I think.” Trainee: “See, I’m not so dumb, am I? So who are we gonna board and take hostage?” Boss: “I got a perfect first job all scoped out. This guy’s got a nice CrisCraft. He goes fishing every Thursday afternoon. We’ll have lunch at The Dory, pick up a bottle from Shelter Island Wine & Spirits, row our little boat out and wait for him on the outgoing tide.” Thursday, 4 p.m. Burt Smith heads out in his nice boat with a stocked cooler... Burt: “Holy sh** Who the f*** are you? Get off my boat!” Trainee: “Surrender! You’ve been boarded and are now the prisoner of the Pirates of Atlantic Seaboard, Northern East Chapter!” Burt: “Are you out of your f-ing mind? You can’t seize boats off of Shelter Island, I can still wave to my wife, see her? Over there, by the car?” Boss: “The short brunette?” Burt: “Yeah, the short brunette, the one who’s waving at us now...” Trainee: “Give me your cell phone. But dial your wife first, I can never operate those phones.” Burt: “Here’s the phone, see, you can see her pulling her’s out of her purse to answer.” Trainee: “Hello Missus. My brother and I have captured your husband’s boat and we are holding him hostage. If you value his life, bring us a half a million dollars in small, unmarked bills, we will call you with the drop off place later. Stop laughing, Missus. This is serious business! Don’t you love your husband? Don’t you want him to come home to you in one piece — or should we make him fish food?” Burt: “What did she say?” Trainee: “She hung up!” Boss: “Give me that phone. You don’t even know how to make a convincing threat! Listen and learn!” (Dials the phone.) “Missus, we have your husband. We are serious and his life is in danger. You will bring a half a million dollars ... no, Missus, it has to be half a million, anything less would make us look cheap ... discount? Because he’s your second husband? Don’t be ridiculous! … but ... no, wait, let me explain ...
this is very serious ... no, we can’t talk about this after your company leaves tomorrow ... wait ... but ...” Trainee: “So how did it go, Mr. Big Shot?” Boss: “She hung up on ME!” Burt: “She hangs up on me too. She’s not going to pay any half million to get me back, even if we actually had it.” Trainee: ”Well, how much do you have?” Burt: “I got a couple thousand in the bank, but she wants a new living room set.” Boss (to Trainee): “Don’t ask the hostage what he can afford to pay! WE are the pirates! WE are in charge! I’m calling the Missus back.” Boss: “We know you have at least $3,000.

Because we are not murderers, we will accept that amount and give you your husband ... Pay you? Why would we pay you? I don’t know, what happens to your husband after he eats chili dogs and drinks beer all afternoon? How would I know that? I don’t have $200! I’m not paying you to take him back! What kind of wife are you?” Burt: “She gets money out of everybody! That’s my girl!” Boss to Trainee: “Turn the boat around, this woman is insane. We’re getting rid of this hostage now.” Trainee: “Good idea, I think whatever happens to him when he eats chili dogs and beer is starting to happen...”

The Republicans are not going to lie down and hand over the keys to Town Hall to the Democrats — this much is known by all. The semi-civil atmosphere of political co-operation will probably become sharply more intense moving forward as the political temperature rises. With so much uncertainty one thing is for certain, Southampton politics this election cycle will not be more of the same. Gordon Herr is confident. “I believe we have the momentum and issues on our side,” he said. “I am looking forward to the election with enthusiasm. So many Democrats have worked hard for a very long time.”

time and with his own money. Wedell has every right to be out with a sign protesting these undocumented immigrants. He has every right to claim that American taxpayer money should not be used to support them. And he has every right to go to the police about his broken window. I truly hope the police find and arrest whoever did this. But it is also true that Wedell has recently expanded his protesting to include harassment and intimidation of both the immigrants and even those who might just be walking along who wish to talk to them. Although it is everyone’s legal right to spew whatever sort of hatred they wish at anyone in America, they do not have the right to harass them up close and personal in a threatening and menacing way. I have watched many protests over the years. Where protesters shout hate, the police keep them at a distance. People who are peacefully standing around minding their own business, whether it be because of their religion, their color or their place of origin, are protected by the police from being intimidated and interfered with by protesters. The protesters are moved across the street, away from those they hate. And if they don’t stay there, they are arrested for harassment and disturbing the peace. This however, does not happen with Wedell in Southampton. He is apparently free to move about exhibiting this behavior, right at the entrance to the Village of Southampton, mingling with those he despises. Last week, before this incident, Wedell was asked to leave the 7-Eleven because he had come in demanding that the store refuse to sell food to people who intended to bring it outside to feed those who were hungry in these hard times. He also went to Town Hall and complained to a deputy building inspector enough to get him to come down to the Southampton Tire Store across the street from the 7-Eleven where Sister Breige Levery of the Sister of Mercy Church in Water Mill was operating a soup kitchen for the hungry. The deputy building inspector shut the soup kitchen down, a decision that was reversed four days later by the chief building inspector when he got back from vacation and determined that his deputy had enforced a law that was not applicable in this situation, and that, in fact, there is no law against operating charitable non-profitable soup kitchens. In other words, Wedell is taking matters into his own hands. Mayor Mark Epley of Southampton describes the situation as dangerous and volatile. Yet he doesn’t act to separate Wedell from the people he harasses and require him to protest against them from across the street in an orderly manner. Until he does, the people of Southampton will continue to have to live with a shameful situation right at the very entrance to the village, where visitors get Wedell and his flags and signs and angry taunts and shouts as the first taste of the experience of Southampton.

By Dan Rattiner Week of April 25 – May 1, 2009 Riders this week: 13,411 Rider miles this week: 84,232 DOWN IN THE TUBE Congressman Chuck Schumer, of Long Island, was seen on the Southampton platform with Vice President Joe Biden last Wednesday. They were on a fact finding tour of the subway. Lucky straphangers saw Leonardo DiCaprio being wheeled through the Amagansett station on a gurney last Thursday afternoon. He plays Cougar Man, a superhero in the upcoming movie Superhero’s Revenge. And he was in full costume as he came through. What a treat!
cape into the sleeve of the door. It could not be removed. And it could not be cut out because, to get realism, Warner Brothers had had it made out of titanium. Cougar Man, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, was finally extricated after the entire subway casing was dismantled at two in the afternoon. He was taken to Southampton Hospital, treated and released by three. And we were able to get the subways up and running again by four. Director Ron Howard says that one of the first
COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE In analyzing a ridership study done by Two Brothers Statistical last month, it was noticed that the number of riders going through the turnstiles has not increased, but that the subway cars themselves seem jammed with people. What we have discovered is that hundreds and maybe thousands of teenage boys have been getting on the subway system and then staying on it, going around and around for hours, playing the hit Xbox video game, On the Subway, that’s taken the high schools in the Hamptons by storm. The game is so addictive it’s been banned (continued on page 40)
DINING CAR IS HERE Riders will notice that a dining car is now located in the middle of all subway trains, so that people both in the front and the back can enjoy the service there. Unfortunately, it is locked. Although it was supposed to open this week, we have been told there has been a delay in the arrival of the fresh truffles from Yugoslavia that had been on their way here. The boat bringing them was hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia. And so the owners of the four-star French restaurant, Le Somielle, have postponed the opening of the service until next week. We are very excited to have one of the best restaurants in the world to offer catering services in our dining cars. And with this postponement, we are also postponing telling you the name of the restaurant for another week. Let the suspense build. Oh, I already did? SUPERHERO DISASTER The Hampton Subway apologizes profusely to everyone for the complete shutdown of the service all day last Thursday. The shutdown was made necessary because a superhero’s cape became caught in a subway door at 6:50 a.m. and could not be removed for seven hours because of the material it was made out of. As we reported last week, a scene from the Warner Brothers upcoming film Superhero’s Revenge was shot on our subway system early in the morning last Thursday. The original plan was to have them film between 3 and 5 a.m. when the subway shuts down for maintenance, but as it was a complex scene, the filmmakers got permission to continue until 7 a.m. There would have been just a two hour closure of the system. The scene, shot over and over again, consisted of the five caped superheroes running across the platform, the bad guys chasing them, and then the superheroes leaping into a subway car at the last minute to make their getaway. The subway car pulls out. All went well for the first 14 takes. But on the 15th, just before the scene would have to “wrap,” the sliding door closed on the cape of Cougar Man and, as the train pulled out, dragged the

saw cigarette packs, incense candles, scarves, old shoes, hats and jewelry. It was all laid out neatly. It all looked like it had been there a long time. The deity, whoever he was, had not yet come down to accept any of this stuff. But I guess they were still hoping. On another trip we visited Tikal in northern Guatemala. Here, deep in the jungle, are 10story tall pyramids that have, up on top, sheltered platforms where the Mayans performed the sacrifices to their gods. Again, nobody was up there doing that — the Mayans were all gone by 1400 A.D. — but the platforms were up there and, according to the archeologists who translated the carved writings on the bases of these pyramids, the sacrifices to the gods
included not only goats and lambs, but also captured enemy soldiers, virgins and slaves. But what, exactly, were these people trying to accomplish with these sacrifices? Presumably, they were trying to assuage or bribe the gods into treating well those who made the sacrifices. Was it like, “Look, we are having lamb tonight, but we have the biggest one for you?” Or was it like, “This is all the lamb we have, and we are going to sacrifice ourselves by not eating it and instead offer it up for you to eat while we remain hungry, so if it’s okay with you, please send us something from heaven to eat when you’ve finished the lamb.” Or, considering the cigarette packs and jew-

elry, is it just about food? And what were the sacrificers to make of the fact that the god never does, actually, come down and partake of the sacrifice offered up to him? I’ve tried putting myself in some of these people’s shoes. (Well, sandals.) They are born. They grow up. They wonder about all the wondrous things they discover everywhere. Surely somebody extremely great and powerful did all this. How can we show our appreciation? Our religious leaders tell us that if we get together as a group and praise the Lord and sing really loud announcing that we will obey him and believe in him, he will treat us kindly. And that makes a certain amount of sense. Abraham, the father of both the Jewish and Christian faiths, was walking along minding his own business when he saw a bush burning without being consumed. God spoke to him from inside the bush. He told him to build a fire up on Mount Ararat and upon it to sacrifice his eldest son, Isaac. Abraham said okay. And then, at the last minute, with Abraham just about to place his young son in the fire he’s built, God intervenes to say, “Oh, I was just testing to see if you would do that. You really don’t have to now.” I am thinking that in ancient times, when the priests got the local citizenry together to make a sacrifice to a deity, perhaps it was about the smoke. The smoke from the consuming of the sacrifice rises up. “There, you see?” the priest says. “He’s accepted the sacrifice.” God, back then, was up. They’d try to make sure the sacrifice was not held on a windy day when the smoke might go sideways. On those days, if you attempted one, the priest would have to report that the god was refusing the sacrifice. This would not be good. Well, I am only guessing. As for me, I personally think there is a God up there who created everything. I imagine him happy about what he created. And though I don’t know if he considers me as better or worse than anything or anybody else he created, I WILL make sacrifices, but in the sense of sacrificing something that I have to benefit others on the planet who do not. It’s a meaning of the word sacrifice that I understand, and my rationale for it is that I’ve seen what God can do and it’s pretty darn good and I’m just gonna help out, whether he asks me to or not. By the way, it’s in a commandment he sent down from Mount Sinai: Love thy neighbor. I think what he’s trying to do here with this universe is write a Disney fairytale. I’m all for it. But I’m not cooking him anything unless he personally asks me.

City Lawyer/Country Lawyer Desiderio. “The buyer and seller wasted two weeks in contract negations — that’s DEATH in this year’s time frame. The sticking points on the deal were things that a local attorney would’ve known were non-issues. “There are many nuances involved in buying and selling on the East End,” she added, “particularly when it comes to land. This story has a happy ending. A new buyer came to the table and T&C made a strong suggestion to the seller: Use a local attorney. Learning from a mistake, the seller took the suggestion and engaged East Hampton attorney John Tarbett (from a generations-old East Hampton family, and the son of a builderº. “The deal was signed and executed in a week,” said Desiderio, “set to close in 30 days.” While Desiderio, brokers and local attorneys stop well short of dishing the power industry of New York attorneys, they all seem to agree Dan Rattiner
By Susan Galardi You put in an offer and have an acceptance (O&A) on a house you want to buy. You had a home inspection and nothing about it made you run screaming from the property. You’ve been to a lender, and got a pre-approval. From the beginning, you’ve probably (hopefully) also been in contact with a real estate attorney to take you from meeting of the minds to a move in date. Like everyone else involved, awyers can expedite, drag out or kill a deal. So choosing the “right” lawyer is critical. “There’s a house, there’s buyer who wants to buy and a seller who wants to sell. It’s everyone else’s job to make that happen.” While this statement from Bridgehampton attorney Theresa Quigley may sound simple and even altruistic, there’s more to it than meets the eye. Local industry insiders say lawyers are integral when it comes to knowledge of local codes and quirks, and timing. A recent transaction through Town & Country Real Estate was a perfect example. An owner of a piece of land needed to sell it. T&C got a buyer, had an O&A, and all were ready and willing to move forward. The seller chose an out of town attorney. The buyer had engaged a local attorney, John McGowan in East Hampton. A few weeks later, the deal fell apart when the buyer pulled out. “In my opinion, the buyer had gotten enough flack from the seller’s attorney that he became disinterested,” said T&C President/CEO Judi
that a reputable local attorney familiar with zoning regulations and other intricacies of East End real estate is the way to go. “Luckily for all of us out here, we have a good array of solid local attorneys to work with,” said Desiderio. “Timing is everything right now. Local attorneys are here on weekends, they’ll walk the contract across the street. They can make things happen.” For those doubting the advantage of shopping local, think of it this way: Even if you had a highly experienced Hamptons attorney who successfully executed a deal for you on a home or land out East, would you pit that person against co-op boards in New York? “New York attorneys specializing in coops and condos may not know about Certificates of Occupancy,” said Quigley. “It’s important to find a person who knows the loopholes, understands local issues and works well with others so they don’t kill the deal. Once the buyer and seller agree on price, the deal is 95% (continued on next page)

done. My job is to council the client on what the deal is.” “What the deal is” is defined by negotiating and interpreting a lot of information. Quigley sees her role as three fold: First, to ensure that what the buyer is buying is the same as the terms worked out in the contract. Second, to interpret the information. “Maybe the surveyor miscalculated clearing of the property — didn’t take aquifer overlay in consideration,” she said. “I’d have to make sure that information jibes with local codes.” (Now there’s a litmus test for out-of-area attorneys: try dropping the phrase “aquifer overlay” on them.) “The contract negotiations are the hardest
part,” said Quigley — a statement proven by the earlier anecdote. “Muscling by the buyer or seller on contract terms might kill a deal. I had a deal that fell apart over a sink drain stopper. But it wasn’t that — the stopper was simply last straw for the buyer faced with a seller who made too many demands.” The third and final step for the attorney is the closing. By then, the majority of his or her work has (or should have) been done, and laid out in the fully executed contract: the lawyer’s moment in the sun that represents successful negotiation and due diligence. Then, if all the i’s were dotted and t’s crossed, you just may have a deal.

getting washed back out by the low. Just weeks from now, the beaches will be soft pillows of the stuff, and it will be ready for sunbathing, swimming, Frisbee, volleyball, surfing and hang gliding. As I write this, all the boats in all of our harbors — about a dozen of them — are still huddled together on the shore, each bundled in its white cocoon of plastic on the wooden braces they were put on last fall, to keep them from harm through the harsh winter. In 45 days, they will be rocking in their slips, ready for a party or a barbecue or a trip to Block Island. Some of them will even be heading out through the jetties, on their way to points unknown and new adventures. Up in the sky in April, the winter birds are chattering away at the change, wondering where the winter went. As for the summer birds, they have not yet arrived. But they will soon. And when they do, the mating rituals of all these creatures, and of many other creatures — including humans — will begin. We locals have our own concerns. It’s been a brutal winter not only because of the snowstorms and below zero temperatures and freezing ponds and lakes, but because of the ice cold economy as well. In the spring, the locals anticipate what the summer visitor season is going to bring, and this year, in this deep depression we are going through, they are not very optimistic. Nevertheless, on Friday evenings, it heartens them to see the traffic beginning to swell and the downtowns filling with people. Off down winding lanes, homes are being cleaned, lawns are being planted and landscapers are out raking up the debris of the winter, while in the downtowns, amidst the newly vacant stores, there are new businesses moving in — with the painting of walls, the banging of hammers, the whine of power saws and the signs in the windows filled with anticipation of shoppers to come. People who have helped define this place were lost this winter. We lost Christian Wolfert in early January, we lost James Brady in late March and Paul Sidney in early April. Others have died. New people are born to replace the old. Life goes on. It’s to be another summer in the Hamptons. We look around at what we have to do to get ready. But as we always have, we will get it ready. April is the time just before the big game. The people are arriving, parking their cars, and beginning to fill to head for the assigned seats in the stadium. Soon the games will begin. A bit dented and subdued perhaps, but nevertheless. And the contrast between the suntan lotion and beach balls and 80 degree weather of July that we can look forward to, and the bitter cold zero degree weather of January with its mountains of ice and snow that we are leaving behind has never looked quite so stark. April. For April Fools, for hope, for Passover and Easter and fitting out and anticipation, here it is.

Potatohampton 5K Minithon Coming Soon!
Joel Rodney/Lianne Alcone
By Dan Rattiner The Dan’s Papers 5K Potatohampton Minithon is coming. It will take place this year on a different day than it has taken place for each of the last 30 years. Instead of being held Memorial Day weekend, it will be a week later, on Sunday after, still at 9 a.m., and still with the starting line on Ocean Road in Bridgehampton, just south of the Bridgehampton monument in the center of town. So if you’re one of the 400 or 500 runners who usually come to this, please note the change. It is May 31. This is the second big change in the way this race is run. The first big change took place after the very first event, which was in 1979. Police stopped traffic on the Montauk Highway at the corner of Hayground Road so the runners could cross. They were very kind to have done that for us. But even in 1979 there were large numbers of cars on the Montauk Highway on Memorial Day weekend and, the following year, they politely requested that we change the route of the race. It could be north of the Montauk Highway or it could be south of the Montauk Highway. Either one would be fine. We chose south of the Montauk Highway for the second year. And it has been south of the highway since.
I still have a vivid memory of the police stopping traffic for the race that first year. It was not done with police cars parked on the roadway with lights flashing. It was done with motorcycle policemen, who parked their Harleys on the side of the road and walked out into the street waving their arms to shut the traffic down in both directions. I was standing on the Montauk Highway to the east of that crossroad. And I was there not so much to witness the closing of the Montauk Highway as I was to help the lead runners coming down Hayground Road from the north to the Montauk Highway dodge a train. I had set up a horrible situation with the route I chose for that first race. I didn’t notice what I had done wrong.
And the police did not notice what I had done wrong either. I had chosen a route that would take the runners from the starting line on Snake Hollow Road nort past the railroad tracks to Mitchell Lane, then up to Scuttlehole Road, then west on Scuttlehole Road to Hayground, then south down Hayground to cross the highway and then down Newlight Lane into the depths of the potato farms there. The finish line was in front of the Dan’s Papers building. The mistake was not the single crossing of the highway. The mistake was the railroad tracks. I had not checked on whether any train was coming through when I had drawn the map for the race. There were only two trains a day. How could either one of them possibly be exactly then? A few days before race day I thought, “Well, maybe I ought to check,” and damn if there wasn’t a train coming through right when the runners would be coming through. And so, on race day morning, when I handed out the maps, I handed out a separate sheet describing the rules on what to do if when you got to the railroad crossing there was a train coming through. You waited jogging in place. That was the rule. I might note that when I (continued on next page)

handed these sheets out, there was a bit of grumbling about this. Jogging in place would ruin their times. Deal with it, I told them. I also, the day before the race, called the railroad main office. They couldn’t delay the train, they said, but they could tell the engineer to slow it down really, really slow when they got to these two crossings, and to sound their horn really, really loud. The first crossing of the tracks took place directly after the start of the race. I had placed two people on either side of Snake Hollow, presumably to yell at the train or the runners, but there was no train at that time and, from the starting line, I could see the 350 runners of that first race come roaring across the tracks waving their arms and cheering without any train problems. This was the first running race ever held in the Hamptons. Jimmy Carter was president. The enemy was the Soviet Union. We had just gotten color TV. As the runners headed up Snake Hollow and then Mitchell Lane toward Scuttlehole, I followed in the car and watched as the faster runners pulled away and the slower runners straggled behind. They made a long, long line off on the right side of Mitchell and I didn’t think anything of it, but I did think I ought to drive up the line to the front to see who was winning so I could write about it later. I had passed everybody by the time I reached Scuttlehole, and as I turned left there, I looked in the rearview mirror at the lead runners and didn’t think much more of the fact that things were stretching out even farther. Instead, my G A R D E N
S H O P
thoughts were about that second crossing of the railroad tracks up ahead. We had nobody there, and I thought I might do something about the crossing there so I went on ahead to it, didn’t see a train, began to realize there was really nothing I could do about whatever happened, and so I headed down to the Montauk Highway to watch the police stopping traffic there. There is no traffic light at this corner. And no stop sign. The cops would do the job. The thing was that both the police and I believed that everybody would be thundering across the highway all at once. That is how we had imagined it. They’d only have to stop the traffic for three minutes or so. But of course, in the event, that is not what was about to happen. It suddenly dawned on me that the police would see the lead runners coming, stop traffic, and then have to keep it stopped for maybe the next 20 minutes if they wanted to protect all the runners as they came through. Who’d have thought of this? And then I heard the hysterical hooting of the train whistle at the crossing two blocks up the Hayground. I couldn’t see what was going on there. And I just prayed that nobody got killed. Of course, as I learned later, the lead runners got across just before the train and then the train came through leaving the next group of runners jogging merrily in place for a while. So here were the lead runners now coming across the Montauk Highway north to south with the police stopping traffic for them in both directions. And then there were a few more runners and a few more runners and a few more

runners and by that time the traffic was tied up for hundreds of yards in both directions and I was looking for a hole to crawl in. At that point, the chief called the operation off. They said a few things over their two-way radios, got back on their motorcycles and headed off somewhere. The traffic now began to move in both directions and as it did, I watched this horrible sight — hundreds of runners in their t-shirts and shorts now picking their way through the moving traffic. I just hid my head and prayed. Well, nobody got killed. If they had, there wouldn’t be any race this year, of course, and there wouldn’t have even been a second race or any other races after that. And that’s why, way back then, when the police department asked very politely that I not have the runners cross the Montauk Highway for the second renewal of the race, I heartily concurred. Yes indeedy. Why move the race from Memorial Day to the week after Memorial Day this year? Well, back in 1979, people were GLAD to have something to do on Memorial Day weekend. This year, the population is about five times the size it was 30 years ago, the roads are jammed, there’s plenty to do and the town now has made new rules about which license we have to apply for to hold our race. This year, for the first time, we come under the heading of PARADE, which means we’d have to pay for all the police and fire departments and ambu(continued on next page)

Have a Heart: Good Guys Finish First By Tiffany Razzano This year’s Potatohampton 5K Race, sponsored by Dan’s Papers, will benefit the Southampton-based Have a Heart Community Trust, which works to raise money for many local charities that assist the less fortunate in our area. Rather than funneling the money it raises through benefits and donations into just one worthy organization, Have a Heart works with a number of local non-profits, from food pantries to youth oriented groups to organizations that advocate healthcare. Have a Heart looks to see where the need is for these groups on a daily basis, said Rose Dios, founder and trustee. “Our board goes out to [the groups] and asks, ‘What can we do for you?’ … We call up our partner organizations and reach out to them to see what they need. We love to not have money in our account.” Have a Heart works with Peconic Community Council, The East Hampton Community Council, Southampton Day Care Center, The Center for Prenatal Care at Greenport and Herstory at the Riverhead Correctional Facility, among others. Typically, the money goes towards small gestures, such as helping people who are behind on rent and utility bills and keeping them from being evicted, or collecting school supplies for local children in need. “They’re little things, but they add up,” Dios said. Dios founded Have a Heart in 1994 by acci-
dent. Attempting to set up a Valentine’s Day dinner party at the Bridgehampton Community House, she was told the venue was only rented out for charity dinners. So she turned her party into a fundraiser for local food pantries and Have a Heart grew exponentially from there, especially when it earned its not-for-profit status in 1996. Now, Dios has handed over the reins to a younger generation of local residents and professionals interested in helping those in need. “It was always our goal to eventually hand it over to people in their 20s and 30s,” she said. Bill Wright, of Hampton Mortgage, has taken over the role of president this year. He hopes to help the organization grow while attracting younger and different demographics of people interested in assisting the needy by offering events that are more varied and affordable. “We’re going to do things that are not just your typical $100 cocktail ticket,” he said. For instance, last summer the group held its first ever beach volleyball tournament, which raised $14,000 for the Southampton Day Care Center and local food pantries. But just as importantly, through the event “we were able to get people of all ages involved in Have a Heart, people who wouldn’t normally partake in such an event.” In these economic times, Have a Heart
needs all the financial help it can get to continue its mission of helping locals in need. This is why the group is especially excited about benefiting from Potatohampton. “We’re very excited about it,” Wright said. “It’s another group of people, a new target market, we’re going to be able to reach.” Dan’s Papers Potatohampton, the oldest running event on Long Island, will take place on the back roads of Bridgehampton on May 31. The race begins at 9 a.m. on Ocean Road. To download an entry form, go to danshamptons.com, or call 631537-0500.

The gun sounds at 9 a.m. I will be leading the parade in the same car I drove to lead that first parade. It was at that time 20-years-old. It is now 50-years-old.

Honoring the Artist: Daniel Pollera This week’s cover by Dan Pollera presents an inviting, comforting scene where winter woes and economic stresses disappear. Who wouldn’t want to sit on one of Pollera’s beach chairs and contemplate the universe? Q: There’s something quite different about this week’s cover, called “Summer Colors.” It’s not a real place, right? A: Right. I did my own painting, composed my own umbrellas and chairs, added a human touch like lemonade. People look at it and put themselves in the chairs. I also composed the colors, like the oranges and pinks. Q: You mentioned that the setting was based on photographs you took in Nantuckett. But this work is unique. It’s so comforting. A: It’s a “safe haven” — the setting is protected by open water. It’s warm, bright, cheerful — not like the doom and gloom of these catastrophic economic times. I hope when people look at the painting, it will leave them in a better mood. Q: Your work is like that. It always leaves people in a better mood. A: I took my idea of comfort up a notch.

What do Michael Bloomberg and Steven Spielberg have in common other than being Hamptons and international celebrities? They are both Eagle Scouts, the highest rank a Boy Scout can achieve and an honor that very few ever attain. To put into perspective about how difficult it is to become an Eagle Scout, only about 2% of boys that enter the Boy Scouts are ever able to attain the rank. That is because as an Eagle Scout must accomplish an enormous amount. A Boy Scout must fulfill requirements in the areas of leadership, service and outdoor skills as well as be able to earn 21 merit badges, 12 of which are required. To say the least, making Eagle Scout is no easy task. It is a rank held by astronaut Neil Armstrong, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and countless other leaders and captains of industry and politics. Well you can add Peter Miller to that list of Eagle Scouts in America. Peter Christopher Miller of Southampton was awarded this rank at an Eagle Scout Court of Honor at the Elks Lodge in Southampton last Sunday. In a room packed with well over 100 people, Peter was honored by nearly every New York delegate, as well as President Barack Obama. Master of Ceremonies Thom Speckenbach, dressed in full uniform among 20 or so other scouts and scout leaders, called the group to order and introduced speakers, which included Southampton Mayor Mark Epley. He spoke not only about Peter’s accomplishments as a Boy Scout, but as a person. As part of his Eagle Scout requirement, Peter was able to help a Rwandan refugee family through Habitat for Humanity of Peconic. The family, who escaped genocide, was greeted by Peter who built a shed for the family as a welcoming gesture (and because he felt the family could use a shed). Habitat for Humanity of the Peconic Brian Carabeen said, “Peter is quite an example for everyone.” The ceremony was organized by every member of Troop 58, the Trailblazer Council Members, Lou Vlismas, John Laffey, Tom Nanos, Tyler Sinclair and Marsha Terry. Joe Hickus of the Southampton Knights of Columbus gave Peter recognition, as did representatives from the offices of Ken Lavalle, Jay Schneiderman, Fred Thiele and Steve Levy. Southampton Councilman Chris Nuzzi was also in attendance to show his support for Peter. The Southampton Kiwanis as well as VFW, Dunes Post 7009 gave Peter great honor by delivering a plaque and a certificate. The best part about this entire ceremony, besides the fact that in these tough economic times we have some great news to report, was to have the ability to watch the pride in the faces of Peter’s parents Jon and Gina Miller who at points in the ceremony were brought to tears. It was the support that Peter got from his family, mentors and friends that were able to guide him to such a high honor. People like Tac Hostetter, the Soutmaster, Thom Speckenbach, Eagle Project Advisor, Linda Robins, committee members as well as Eagle Scouts Josh Zaloga, Patrick Terry and Sean Laffey.
Peter publicly thanked Greg Tietjen, Ken Weitz, Walter Britton, Perry Zito, Tony Piraino, Michael Caruso, his brother Eric, his parents, his grandparents and Mr. and Mrs. George Riedener. His list also included businesses that showed him support such as Riverhead Building Supply, Herrick Hardware, Stelle Architects and BMW of the Hamptons. This ceremony will not be forgotten by Peter or his future relatives, as becoming an Eagle Scout will be documented by the Legislature of

Over The Barrel... with Lenn Thompson
Photo by Lenn Thompson
Bedell Cellars is one of the true jewels of the North Fork wine world. It represents both the old and the new — blending them perfectly. First, you have a rich history — it was founded in 1980 by Kip Bedell who still serves as founding winemaker. But then you also have an influx of new capital — the result of Michael Lynne purchasing the property and winer in 2000. That capital has lead to a new tasting pavilion, new vineyard plantings and new winery equipment. And third, you have terrific wines coming out of that state-of-the-art winery and modern tasting room. More changes have taken place recently with Jim Silver, senior vice president of sales and marketing, leaving Bedell to take over as the new general manager at Peconic Bay Winery. Jean Partridge, previously Bedell’s wholesale account executive, will become the VP of sales and owner Michael Lynne’s son, Jonathan Lynne will join the team as Executive VP of Sales. Despite all of the changes and updates at Bedell in recent years, one thing seems to be a constant — quality wines that are among the region’s best and that fetch some of the highest prices of any wines made in the Eastern United States. A couple weeks ago, I visited Bedell’s sleek, modern tasting room to taste through nearly two dozen different wines. This week, we’ll focus on what I tasted from the winery’s past — nine different reds from the 1993, 1994 and 1995 vintages. This is a rare opportunity that was simply too enticing to pass up. Without going into too many details just yet, let me say this — out of the two dozen wines I tasted, there
wasn’t a single wine that I wouldn’t drink again. Yes, some of the library wines are clearly past peak, and some of the current releases aren’t good matches to my palate stylistically (aka barrel-fermented chardonnay and reds showing too much new oak). But none of these wines will make you head for the hills. In a future column I’ll tell you about Bedell’s current and upcoming releases — which include a delicious Gewurztraminer, a couple stunning white blends and some of the richest, most intense local reds that I’ve ever tasted. Let’s get back to the older wines, many of which seemed much younger than the early-to-mid 1990s listed on their front labels. The merlots in particular seem to be aging gracefully, taking on beautiful secondary flavors that are earthy and minerally. Of the impressive lot, 1995s in really stood out, which is that surprising. Before there were the celebrated vintages
of 2001, 2005 and 2007, there was 1995 the best vintage ever for Long Island wine to that point. As I tasted them, I found it hard believe that I was a junior in college when these wines were harvested. That just seems like a lifetime ago, and these wines were still lively. I don’t do full reviews or score wines based on at-winery tastings, but here are my notes on three reds from 1995. The Bedell Cellars 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon ($N/A) is still showing lots of dark, ripe blackberry with sprinklings of black pepper and spice. Mouth-filling with a long, extremely earthy finish, this wine still has enough structure to last another few years. I wrote the word “wow” three separate times in my notes. I also scribbled “wow” multiples as I tasted the Bedell Cellars 1995 Merlot Reserve ($N/A) a wine that really shows the cellar-worthiness of Long Island merlot with its dense plum, black cherry and black raspberry fruit character with layers of leather, minerally graphite and spice. Here’s proof that Long Island merlot can age gracefully —improving rather than just surviving. Bedell Cellars 1995 Cupola ($N/A) a blend of cabernet and merlot, is that last “wow” wine from the tasting. Tasted blind, I challenge you to guess that this wine is 13 years old. The nose brings a basket filled with berries — black and red ones — with a pretty floral quality. That fruit tastes almost sweet on the palate, and while the tannins have faded some, there is still acidity to provide structure. It’s not easy to get your hands on these wines, but if you can, I can’t recommend it enough. Look for them in some of the better North Fork restaurants, some of which have deep libraries.

Special Section: Recyle, Repurpose and Reinvent By Allegra Dioguardi When I was growing up, my mother was of the mind that just about anything old could be converted into a planter – an antique wheelbarrow, an enamel coffee pot missing its lid, a cracked antique footbath. Actually, an antique anything had value just because it was old and had “character.” It could either be hung on a wall or if it was a vessel of some nature it could have geraniums planted in it. As a preteen, our evening walks together often yielded treasures discarded by neighRight: A narrow window is expanded visually with the use of shutters.

bors, which we would drag home to refinish and repurpose. I recall an old lobster trap that became a family room end table, a clam bucket that held magazines and an antique wooden child’s sled that became a cocktail table with the addition of a piece of glass for a top. A few old sewing machine bases made their way into our home as well, under the guise of table bases. People said my mother was “creative” and “artsy,” our home was unique and when all these items were lovingly restored they looked “put together,” even historic. And they were considered finds. No one ever called them cast offs. Gratefully, I inherited that gene from my mother. The desk I work at looks suspiciously like an old iron sewing machine base painted black with a glass top on it. The lamp on it is made from old iron pieces. I’m delighted that this way of thinking is regaining popularity today. With our planet getting smaller every day and wastefulness no longer in vogue, people are finding that they are becom-

ing more and more creative and resourceful, as they think twice before throwing their treasures away. There is even a trendy name for this practice: sustainable, or green, design. It’s now chic and even profitable to be eco-friendly and to recycle. Salvaged architectural elements from old buildings and homes have countless uses. As an interior designer and home stager, I’m always on the look out for intriguing finds and I often scour the attics and basements of clients’ homes before heading out to shop. Exterior shutters with a crackled finish work wonderfully when mounted on either side of narrow windows to visually expand them. Six-panel, solid core hardwood doors make magnificent tabletops, mantels make terrific, well, mantles, but they also work like a charm as over scaled, wall-mounted shelves to hold accessories and lean artwork on. They’re particularly helpful on those two-story volume walls where traditional artwork is never sufficient. Old (continued on next page)

The possibilities are endless. And antique beams and columns can add important and beautiful structural elements, but did I mention the character they can add? Salvaged wood framed windows can be transformed into unique frames for black and white art photography hung from chains in a series or as decorative mirror frames. I’ve also found if the glass is removed you can lean them against a wall as a shabby chic bathroom towel and magazine rack with tons of character. Try a new finish and funky new hardware on that clunky old chest of drawers and you might just be surprised.

Spring Cleaning: Cheerful Chores It’s time to get a new pair of gloves and some oil and sharpen the pruners and edgers and get moving in the garden. If you have not been exercising all winter, do a little stretching before your first foray into the field. Otherwise you may end up flat on your back. Getting the garden prepared is often a long list of small chores. Starting with getting you and the tools ready may not be enough – a good visual survey is also necessary. Winter damage is usually the first thing to come into my field of vision. Broken branches littered my lawn and I didn’t feel like tripping over them every time I went to and fro with the wheelbarrow. So as boring as that seemed, picking up sticks was the first thing I got to, and in the end it was satisfying. The dogs got to chase a few and the lawn looked a lot better when I finished. So the dead leaves piled in corners were next, this time I was bending and lifting but I had already warmed up with the sticks. While circling around I also noticed branches hanging from the trees and some dead box wood that were more the victims of ball playing with the dogs, but this led to a closer look at the hydrangeas. Fortunately, mine are protected from the wind, so they only need a little cutting back at the tips to keep them from reaching 8’ high. The piles of dead leaves reminded me that I needed to put Damminix or tick tubes out to keep those pesky insects at bay. And that made me think about the oak canker worm, the caterpillar that comes
down out of the oaks on a web after having consumed all the leaves. Did I need to notify the tree company that a Bt spray was necessary right when they first started to emerge, rather than when they made a June barbecue impossible because so many were falling out of the trees? Planning ahead is so much a part of gardening, as anyone who grows vegetables knows. I dug around in my own vegetable patch and seeded in some super sugar snaps, but I had to wait until April 1 to fertilize everything because of our new Suffolk County laws prohibiting the application of fertilizer between November 1 and April 1. But the
peas never come up earlier anyway in my experience. I put down arugula and fennel seeds, cut back the dead out of the herbs and gave the wisteria on the fence a bit of a hacking, mindful of budding spurs. The fruit trees all got a pruning and some fertilizer. I will fertilize them again right after they bloom. I was looking forward to putting out the pots and planting spring flowers, but first the irrigation system needed to be turned on. We have emitters in all the pots, so the head has to be strung through the hole in the bottom before we fill the pots with soil. A few leaks and holes from digging around were fixed at the same time and we set the clock on a spring schedule. I decided to rearrange some of the pots on the back deck and these had to be added on to the system. Irrigating the pots is well worth it if you consider that this one thing relieves me of the chore of watering all spring, summer and fall. Once the big projects were out of the way, I could fill the pots with hyacinths, daffodils, tulips, pansies, brooms and hellebores. This was a lot of fun and with the ever-increasing sense of order the garden was becoming more and more enjoyable to come home to. But there was still more to do. Edges needed to be cut to separate the lawn from the beds, and peony cages have to be set up. The peony cage is one of the most useful items I have ever come across. (continued on page 50)

Refresh Your Home this Season; Get Ready to Bloom By Donna Avedon Ah, springtime! Winter is almost over and the flowers are already popping from their snowy gardenbeds. Now is a great time to think about sprucing up your home, taking it from the winter doldrums to the excitement of spring. If you’re looking around your house and wishing for a change, don’t let a small budget keep you from the look you want. I advise my clients that by simply introducing a few new items, they can change the look of their rooms to fit the season. A bright, fresh color palette will create an alluring and inviting room. Try painting your walls a dusty blue with white trim for a breath of fresh air. The color blue has a calming influence; it lends a sense of serenity and repose. Oceanic hues are ideal for making a bedroom or study a quiet oasis. Add sandy colored beige to this palette and you warm things up a bit! Green, which symbolizes new growth, is a true springtime color. I often add touches of this neutral tone in celadon, mint or pistachio to liven up a drab room. White accents can brighten any color scheme. Add it wherever you can, a painted chair or table, sheer curtains in a gauzy white fabric or light colored slipcovers, an age-old remedy for a dreary room.
You spend a lot of time at home so make it a place where you actually want to be. Here are some quick, affordable fixes that I use to change from a winter scheme to a springtime feel. Don’t underestimate the power of window treatments. Take down those dark and heavy winter curtains and let the brightness of the season indoors. A lightweight fabric in a pastel color or sheer that harmonizes with your décor will lighten things up. Reversible drapery panels are a good idea. One side can be a bold stripe or dark color and the other can be a neutral option for a warm weather look. Pack away any dark accessories, like velvet pillows and wool throws. Change your decorative pillows by covering them with a fresh, floral print or brightly colored solid covers. Another way to brighten up a room is to swap your serious art with warm weather inspirations. Buy some prints of seaside scenes or flowers and frame them (Home Goods has a nice, inexpensive collection). Display them on a bookshelf, bureau, or tabletop. Hang a series of botanical prints down a long hallway. Put away dark brass or pottery conWindow treatments made of lightweight fabric can brighten up a room.

tainers and display clear glass or crystal vases. Itâ€™s a nice touch to fill glass containers and vases with sand, pebbles or beach glass. A starfish and shells placed on a coffee table books is a symbol of the season. If you have a fireplace, place a large vase or container of fresh or silk flowers â€“ tulips, daffodils or hydrangea â€“ in there for an instant burst of color. Natural fiber rugs are made from sea grass, jute or sisal. These rugs come in many different patterns and are relatively inexpensive. Generally light beige
or sand color, natural fiber rugs blend with any scheme and they give an airy and warm weather look to a space. Adding live plants to your room can be a link to the outdoors and improve indoor air quality. I love large leafy plants that are durable and make a bold design statement. A kitchen herb garden of dill, basil and rosemary is easily grown in a sunny window and youâ€™ll always have a pinch for your next recipe. In the winter people tend to hoard things; magazines, knickknacks, blankets, etc. Eliminate clutter. Straw and wicker baskets add a nice summery touch. Your house will seem larger when you reduce the clutter and youâ€™ll feel better, too. Create an outdoor garden â€œroomâ€? with patio furniture, plants and flowers that compliment the dĂŠcor of your home. I have spent a great deal of my time over the past 23 years beautifying clientsâ€™ homes. Last year, while I was decorating a house in Bridgehampton, I ventured out of the interior realm and designed my first garden. The newly finished

family room with antique walnut floors, massive fieldstone fireplace and floor to ceiling windows overlooked a garden that was in disrepair. Since I labored over the color palette of the room, I wanted to ensure that the garden view complimented the interior spaces. I selected many indigenous plants and flowers that harmonized with the interior color scheme. I kept in mind that the height, weight and texture of a plant are just as important as its color. Creating your own personal garden can best be approached as part of the overall home design process. Take the time to enhance your backyard and youâ€™ll spend many days enjoying the fruits of your labor.

They work for large grasses that tend to flop like Miscanthus variegata, sedums, which fall apart in the fall when the flower heads form, and for dahlias too. We prepped the ground for the dahlia tubers in advance, adding bone meal and bulbtone, and then used the peony cage as a marker to remind us where the tuber was planted in the ground. Everyoneâ€™s favorite chore is pruning. I had to take a sizable amount of wood off some old espaliers that had gotten overgrown, which was mentally challenging. It was so refreshing to look at them once they had regained their original form though. Hopefully there will be enough bees to pollinate them. And the roses needed the usual care, nipping them back into a vase shape with outward facing buds, removing the dead or crossing branches is another intellectual exercise of sorts. If only all my other chores were as satisfying as the ones I do in the garden.

By Tiffany Razzano These days, most people are interested in going green and reducing their carbon footprint. There is a wealth of helpful information available out there for people who don’t know where to start. Unfortunately, this massive amount of information might also be overwhelming to the average person looking to make changes in his or her life. Luckily for homeowners, there’s a new company, which was established last fall, called Green Irene that will help you give your home a green makeover.

tion, how to improve indoor air quality, recycling and also the many tax credits, rebates and other financial incentives available to homeowners. “All our recommendations are free things a homeowner can do and won’t cost them anything,” Wiltshire said. “I’ll show them things like how to fill air leaks or how to get their HVAC to work better.” Energy conservation is a huge issue in many homes, she said, and most people don’t realize that by simply lowering their thermostat one or two degrees they can save 2% of their energy bill each month. Air quality is another big topic of interest amongst homeowners, she said. Often, the air in your home might even be of a lesser quality than the air outside because of the toxicity from the formaldehyde used in paints and cleaners that pollute the air. Many of the tips are common sense things that people may have heard before but for one reason or another, have never implemented in their homes. So Wiltshire “gives them the numbers” and homeowners can see not only how much money they can save, but also the impact these minor adjustments can have on the environment. “For the most part, a lot of us already know all this, but we don’t realize the difference it can make,” she said. “For instance, we all know we shouldn’t leave our fireplace vent open, because the air goes out, but most of us do.” The green home makeover will also give you a sixmonth subscription to Ask Green Irene, giving you access to the company’s expertise in all things green. Green Irene also has a catalogue of green products that they either sell or recommend. In fact, Wiltshire will come armed with some of these products to show you how they work and tell you about the benefits that come from using them. Some of these products include rechargeable hybrid batteries, energy conserving power strips, water filters and low flow showerheads. And in this age, Tupperware parties are a thing of the past. Similar to these parties, Green Irene will come to your home and show you and your friends many of these products at a Go Green Workshop. For more information, go to greenirene.com/1006.

Financial Trouble? It’s All How You Spin It Many families may now be facing serious changes to their financial and work lives, and these changes could have a tremendous impact on children – whether it means they lose their summer vacation in the Hamptons, have to change schools, won’t get that new bike or gadget they were promised, or even have to leave their homes. In addition to these changes that affect their material lives, some family changes could mean a change in their day to day existence. For example, a parent who once left for work every morning might now be at home most of the day. For some children, especially younger ones, this could be a boon. For others, it might be disturbing, especially if the parent is depressed or anxious about the change. And of course, a downward spike in household income might result in tension at home and arguments in front of the kids about money and spending. So many issues to consider, and so many questions about how to approach these issues with children. Last week, I spoke with Nella Hahn, a New York State licensed social worker for more than 10 years who practices in Southampton and is a candidate at the Suffolk Institute for Psychotherapy and Analysis. We went into detail on several of these issues, but her basic, blanket approach to dealing with most of them was clear. “Essentially it’s pretty simple,” she said. “The main thing is that you want the child to feel secure. You have to convey to them at any age that true wealth is not measured in dollars and cents. True
wealth is having loving connections, strong relationships and health. It may sound corny and clichéé – but that should be the focus.” Because arguing doesn’t tend to instill a feeling of security, it’s a no-brainer to suggest that parents keep their heated discussions about money (and anything for that matter) to themselves, and not engage in battle in front of the children. In fact, not only does Hahn suggest keeping the negative energy away from the kids as much as possible, you might say she follows the lead of Mr. In Between to accentuate the positive. “Children take their lead from their parents,” she said. “So parents can help them by having an optimistic attitude themselves, and putting a positive spin on the situation. It’s up to the parent to deal with the issues emotionally themselves first, then communicate with kids in a positive way. “For example,” she continued, “an elementary school child, seeing a parent out of work, might be wondering, ‘Why is daddy home?’ – which could be disconcerting. In that case, you’d want to convey that this is a new experience, that a lot of people make changes in their lives. Daddy is looking for something he likes better.” Becoming a spin doctor is important to helping a child have a better attitude about any type of change – but it has to be genuine. A parent who talks about how wonderful a new situation is with a look of horror on her face and fear in her voice won’t really convince a sensitive child. Dealing with disappointments is another issue

that may come up with a change in finances. And again, Hahn believes it’s all about how you approach the change. “If you can’t afford to send your child to summer camp, you might lead by saying that, this year, you’re going to spend time together in the summer, going to the beach, the park,” she said. “For older children, you can say things are different now, not unfortunately different, just different. And stress that it is temporary.” Hahn also stresses that when the belt is tight, it’s a good time to teach children about being charitable – a good time to teach them how to give to others. Finally, even though you want to present any change in the most favorable light, you never want to deny a child’s feelings. If, after all the positive spin in the world, the child is upset, it’s time to listen and reassure.
Cocktail Party at East Hampton Point If nothing else, the recession has underlined the importance of community and its role in stepping in when times are tough. So in the midst of this year’s budgetary stresses and economic woes, the East Hampton Education Foundation, made up of parents and school officials, continues its five-year tradition to raise supplementary funds for programs outside the school district’s budget. This Friday, April 24, from 7 to 11 p.m., the foundation is sponsoring a cocktail party fundraiser at East Hampton Point Restaurant. (Cost is $25 in advance/$30 at the door. For information, 631-329-6462.) The foundation sponsors, among many other programs, Author in Hand which helps to fund book fairs, the Quilts of Valor project for returning veterans, and the East Hampton Middle School Challenge Day, encouraging tolerance among peers.

pet agree By Jenna Robbins Keeping Your Pet Healthy in the Spring and Summer It’s official. The hot summer weather is on its way and it’s bringing a couple of friends to rent space on your dog. I have started my own personal war against ticks. They have NO redeeming qualities and must be stopped! The most important point to get across to you is that tick prevention medicine does not prevent ticks from landing on and camping out on your dog. But it will kill the ticks and fleas within 18-24 hours of their coming into contact with your pets. There are too many types of flea and tick medications to mention. However, I will say that Frontline has always been my favorite. It is absorbed into the oil glands and not the bloodstream. Easy to apply, Frontline is also waterproof and appears to be quite safe, as it’s also used on puppies. Talk to your vet to determine which product is best suited for your dog. Check for ticks as often as possible especially after an exposure to wooded areas. You can actually teach your dog that the tick check is part of the ritual of taking a walk. Run your finger through your dog’s coat and feel for anything that just doesn’t belong there. Another good way to get a visual of your dog’s skin is to use a hair blower set on cool or low and blow the coat into parts, exposing the skin. If you find a tick embedded in your dog’s skin, proper removal is very important. If you’re not sure, let a vet or vet tech assist you. Do research online or get printed info to identify the tick and the diseases it may carry. If you notice your dog exhibiting
lethargic behavior, having difficulty walking and jumping, limping or suspect Lyme’s or other tickassociated diseases, consult your veterinarian immediately, as early detection is really important. Heartworm is another summer threat that is contracted from mosquitoes. And unlike diseases contracted from ticks and fleas, oral medication is used to prevent it. The good news is a simple blood test can detect heartworm disease and seasonal or yearround preventatives are available. What are hot spots? Somehow that sounds more like a popular club or a place to use wireless
Internet. What a hot spot really means to your dog is the agony of summer sores or moist eczema that can become extremely inflamed and infected in a period of 24 hours. Any irritated or broken skin with a little moisture from damp grass, swimming or even bathing can create the perfect environment for a hot spot. Fortunately, if treated early enough, hot spots can be relieved with the use of topical and oral antibiotics. If left untreated, a simple sore or hot spot may become your dog’s entertainment as he can become compulsive about licking it. Then the untreated infected area, coupled with relentless licking, will create thickened scar tissue and chronic infection reaching down to the deeper layers of skin. Known as lick granuloma, this will then require more aggressive treatment. If your dog does not have healthy skin or coat, feeding them a higher performance diet will help to improve dry irritated skin and chronic itching and help reduce the risk of hot spots. Look for foods that list chicken, lamb, poultry, beef or fish as the first ingredient. If the first ingredient listed is corn, keep looking. Ask your vet about supplements that contain omega fatty acids. Many families choose to shave their heavy coated and longhaired dogs during the summer months. Though the look is not exactly desirable, shaving or giving your dog a “puppy cut” can really help to easily detect and ward off most of your dog’s summertime assailants.

Head’s Up! By Annette Gunnels-Garkowski Springtime seems to be the time of the year that we all want to do something different with our hair color and style. With summer around the corner, it really does make sense to start lightening our hair and checking out the new cuts. We seek a lighter, simpler style, something we can easily take care. If the style is simplistic, we want to go a bit bolder with the color and vice versa. Sometimes a shade or two lighter is all that is needed to get that look you are after. But beware: If you are doing your hair color at home with box hair color and a change is attempted, it usually results in a trip to a local salon for some Rx. Perhaps some tips can head off (pun intended) this excursion. If you have been using a dark shade over your light to medium colored tresses, and want to lighten it a few shades, do not go and apply a lighter shade over your present color. Applying hair dye over an existing color will result in lighter roots and a darker shaft or ends. You will only be applying dye over existing dye, making it darker and harder to remove. When you go to the salon for a touch up, the colorist will apply a 20 volume peroxide developer to your new growth, and to refresh your previously colored ends, use the same color but mix it with a more gentle 10 volume peroxide and leave it on for a very short time. The problem with boxed shades is you are getting
20-volume peroxide. Combing this product through to refresh your ends not only will darken them, it will also result in chemically damaged dry hair. If you dye your hair and there is not a huge difference in your ends, there is a simpler way to lighten your hair. Try using a high detergent shampoo like Prell Concentrate. Several shampoos at once or over a period of days will lighten your hair, especially your ends. Put it on dry unwashed hair, and leave for 15 minutes, wash, rinse and repeat. Employing a good conditioner now, like Clairol Condition, is wise to correct the dry, brittle ends that come as a result of chemical mistakes. If it is several shades you want to lighten, I cannot stress to you enough to leave it in the hands of a professional. A home color can leave your hair with unwanted shades of red and gold when you try to attempt this process yourself. A hairdresser, or preferably a colorist, can see this coming from working with different combinations of tints over time and attempt to correct it either by suggesting a different shade and/or by the use of
drabbers. Drabbers are a product added to the mixed color to eliminate signs of brassiness and other funky colors that crop up. These products can wreak havoc in the hands of an unskilled person. The professionals have all they need at their disposal at the salon to correct most color mistakes. Doing a patch test is equally important. Just because you haven’t shown an allergic reaction in the past, doesn’t mean you can’t develop one. Products are constantly changing and improving, and new ingredients are being added. It makes good sense to test yourself. Finally, by getting advice before changing the color yourself, you will be saving a lot grief and the condition of your hair. All the processes needed to correct that one ‘great idea’ will certainly change the structure of your hair. Remember, on average, hair only grows about a half inch a month, if you have to cut your hair because of damaging chemical treatments, that is all you can expect, that little half inch a month. Go easy on yourself, you’re really worth it!

Penny Wise Recently, it was Abraham Lincoln’s 200th birthday and to mark the event the Treasury Department has minted newly designed pennies. I don’t know what it’s going to cost, but let’s face it, it can’t be that inexpensive. With the current state of the US economy, I felt that it was a stupid idea. It really is penny foolish for a country that certainly hasn’t been pound wise for the last decade. Many car collectors make financial errors when repairing, buying and collecting automobiles. In many, many ways people lusting after certain types of cars are penny wise and pound foolish. Just view some of the many vintage car auctions you see on television. I’ve been stunned over and over again by the huge sums buyers sometimes pay for automobiles. I’m not talking chump change here, but $50,000 to $150,000 bids on some cars that are just not that valuable. As time goes by, the cars may never live up to their auction prices. Be aware that these are also automobiles that the bidders have never driven nor have the cars been inspected by a bidder’s mechanic. Pure madness. I call it a combination of auction fever and dumb money. Then there’s the guy who goes out and buys a bargain priced, unrestored collectable. As an example, let’s say it’s a 1967 Jaguar E-Type convertible. The car, a barn find, costs $30,000 and has a rusted out undercarriage and a frozen engine. Of course the interior is shot. A well-known Jaguar restorer gives him a quote of $50,000 for a full restoration. Everyone who has ever restored a car knows that both restorations and US military aircraft contracts always go over budget, so let’s say that it actually costs $60,000. Oh, and the fellow has to wait a year and a half to have the Jag finished. For the same price, probably less, he could have purchased
the same model E-Type already restored to a high standard. Plus, he could enjoy the car much sooner. Unless a car is given to you by a rich uncle with good automotive taste, or you find the bargain of the century, with today’s high cost of truly talented body shop labor, it simply doesn’t pay to fully restore a car. Buy one already restored, especially in today’s economy where prices for everything are down. I’m not saying don’t go ahead and repaint a car or rebuild an engine. It’s just those full-blown body off, chassis up full restorations that don’t seem to make sense. You know what’s more valuable than a beautiful restored car? It’s a low mileage original car. The benefit of an all original, unrestored car is that you know what’s there. No rust was expertly patched. No panels were ever painted. It’s the way it came out of the factory, with a satisfying patina. Around 1990, I
bought a 1958 Ford Thunderbird. The truth is that I never really liked 1959 Thunderbirds, or “Squarebirds” as they are called. Compared to the earlier two-seat Birds, these ‘58 four-seaters were boxy looking. The reason I purchased the car was because it was a garage queen in Southampton and had only 24,000 miles on the odometer. It was one of the best original cars I’d ever seen. It was white with a perfect aqua leather interior. At the few car shows where it was shown it always received comments like “great restoration.” People, stunned when told it was original, often did not believe me. Speaking of originality, I personally wince when I see a car that has been hot-rodded or modified. Don’t get me wrong. I know, originally, car guys did that, but in most cases it hurts the resale value of a collectable. I once had a MG-TD in which I installed a TR-4 engine and a Jaguar MK 5 drophead that I purchased with an Oldsmobile V-8. Several years ago I almost purchased an Aston Martin that had a Chrysler 440 Hemi for power. In all cases, except perhaps for the MG, all of these cars are worth much less than they would be if their original engines had been intact. The two most common engine changes that bother me the most are when owners put small block Chevrolet V-8s into early Fords and remove the beautifully smooth running iconic Ford flathead V-8. Also, removing that handsome twin cam sixengine from late model Jaguars and replacing it with a Chevrolet V-8 is a sin. Why? It kills the resale value of the car. Today, more than ever, it pays to make any purchase wisely. There are many bargains in collector automobiles currently in the marketplace. If you’re in a position to have the discretionary income to buy a classic car at any price level, think before you leap.

Arts & Entertainment Cheap Thrills: Karaoke
By T.J. Clemente With money in short supply to so many, an inexpensive option for getting out and having fun is singing karaoke. Not to mention, belting out some of your favorite songs is a great way to let off some steam. A few weeks ago, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, I made a pilgrimage to five different karaoke bars in four Hampton towns. It started on a Thursday in Sag Harbor at Sen, which was having its first “Idol on the Harbor@Sen” — a contest of serious singers that will position the two winners of every Thursday nights of April in a group face off. First place is a $250 cash prize, a portrait drawing, and an article in a publication. Second is a $50 gift certificate to Sen, and third place earns the winner a bottle of Sen’s premium sake. The contest starts at 11:30 p.m. and goes on until 1 a.m. The two winners of the first week were Courtney Tomlinson and Brandi Shiga, who edged out regulars Tami Pharaoh and Holly Hodder. Hodder, a local real estate agent, said going to karaoke, “makes me look forward to Thursday nights.” Sen’s Ryunosuke Jesse
Matsuoka called it, “lots of fun.” Angela Wilson and Glen Clermont of Lyrical ran the karaoke. There’s no admission and no pressure to buy drinks. Gurney’s Inn also has Thursday karaoke, run by Harry LaGarenne and featuring Kenny Simonetti as “Kenny the singing bartender.” Simonetti serves your drinks and sings you songs, including his favorites by Elton John, Eric Clapton and others. His singing is only surpassed by his bocce skills, being the reigning Montauk Bocce Masters Champion. Simonetti’s version of “Music of the Night” is award winning. On Friday night I visited Liar’s Saloon in Montauk, led by Jim and Nanci LaGarenne, and Fiddler’s Cove in East Hampton where the management runs the fun. The atmosphere at Fiddler’s Cove is very laid back, with more of an informal gathering type of karaoke, making it a good place for novices. Liar’s has a core consistent group that comes whether it’s seven degrees in the winter or 98 in the summer. They’re lead by fisherman Rich McGuire and his wife Cathy, JB Barrett, Carl Darenberg, Harry
LaGarenne, Judy Ceslow (also known as J-Diddy), Karen German, Buddy Kelly, Helen McGuire, Chris Vosteen, Lola and Kim Esperian, Cece (the first lady of Liar’s Saloon) and her daughter Melissa Mahoney, among others. Festivities start at 10 p.m. and end around 1 a.m. Beers on karaoke nights are very reasonable, starting at $1 at Liar’s, maybe giving participants a shot of courage (bring your designated driver). On Saturday night, I started in Montauk at O’Murphy’s, where once again Jim and Nanci were running things, this time for owners Chet and Jan. It was their opening night of the 2009 season and they had a good crowd on hand. From there I headed to Bridgehampton to catch karaoke at Almond. Eric Lemonides is by far the biggest karaoke enthusiast of any owner/manager. He, at times, can do Rocky Horror show tunes or Springsteen classics really well. It’s a diverse crowd of regulars, visitors and diners. Here too, Angela Wilson and Glen Clermont, with the help of Robert A. Sylvester, run karaoke. They start around 10:45 p.m. and roll on to at least 1:15 a.m. This atmos(continued on next page)

Montauk-based Suddyn Returns to its Roots Splitting their time between both sides of the Atlantic for the past several years – the East End and Ireland – Montauk brothers Alan and Jarrett Steil are back in the United States with their band, Suddyn, and gearing up for an April 29 gig in Manhattan. Fans of the group’s fusion of Brit rock and American alternative rock can even hop on a chartered bus with the band for an easy commute to the venue, which is Piano’s on Ludlow Street. The group spent much of November in Ireland, writing and recording the songs that make up its latest EP, Dark Lights. So this will be the first time in months that the foursome has been on stage, which they’ve been itching to get back to. “Our live show is definitely a big part of us,” said Bren Connolly, who plays drums. “We love playing live in front of people.” The closest the group has gotten to being on stage has been in their garage in Montauk, as impromptu groups of friends have gathered while the group has been practicing for the upcoming show, said Jarrett Steil. The Steil brothers (Alan on piano and vocals and Jarrett on guitar and vocals), who grew up in Montauk and whose parents own the Montauk Bake Shoppe, originally headed to Ireland nearly four years ago with their original line-up simply looking to book a few shows. But when they lost their original drummer and bass player and hooked up with Connolly and bassist Collin O’Dwyer, two friends from Tipperary, Ireland, they decided to stay. As an unsigned band, they had several songs hit the Irish charts – “Drowning Souls” spent two weeks in the Top 10, while “Gravity” and
Art Commentary by Marion Wolberg Weiss
“Letting Go” made it into the Top 20. Well known British rock magazine, NME, even named them a breaking band to watch. Used to splitting time between Montauk and Ireland, the group headed back to the East End last summer with the intention of staying for good. However, a record deal fell through and the group found itself back in Dublin working on the songs that would make up Dark Lights, which really shows how much the group has evolved over the
past several years. “We moved towards a big, American sound with this,” said Jarrett Steil. “It’s more polished than anything you’d hear in Ireland. Bands there go for a more grungy, stripped down sound. Our sound hasn’t changed, but it’s more refined. It’s the sound we’ve always been shooting for.” It also became apparent to the band that it needed to leave the insular and somewhat confining music scene of Dublin. The group has already played every major venue across that country and realized it was ready to take aim at the United States again. So the four of them headed back to Montauk. “The Dublin scene is a different style from us,” Connolly said. “We didn’t fit in. We’re a different genre from a lot of the bands in Dublin.” Steil added, “Our sound is a lot bigger than other bands in Ireland. We try to make it as full and as big as possible. They’re more stripped down. And we’ve been around everywhere Ireland. We’re ready to try something new.” Suddyn is hoping the show at Piano’s will grab the attention of some record industry folks. The group is especially interested in hooking up with a booking agent in order to set up an American tour to gain some more exposure stateside. For more information about the band and to purchase Dark Lights, go to myspace.com/suddyn or suddyn.com. For more information about booking a seat on the bus heading to the group’s April 29 NYC show, e-mail Linda@suddyn.com. For $40, you’ll get a seat on the bus as well as admission to the show.
Ibram Lassaw at Open Studio

phere is very laid back. The bartender and the manager, Laura, sing tunes at the end of the night. Jim and Nanci LaGarenne’s karaoke list includes over 80,000 songs. Later in the season (after July 1), there’s karaoke at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett on Wednesdays, hosted by Harry LaGarenne. Bartenders Stephen Day and Phil Vega sing weekly. The Havana Beach Club in Montauk has karaoke Saturdays – bartender Jimmy Giles belts out Sinatra. Montauk’s Sail Inn, perhaps the most intimate of all karaoke venues, welcomes singers on Fridays. Big Rich, who has the voice of Billy Joel and Elton John, handles the karaoke at Sails Inn and Havana. He’s considered the friendliest of all karaoke MCs because of his good-natured, stress free style. If you haven’t given karaoke a try, perhaps now, in these times, is the right time to go for it.

Food / Dining Simple Art of Cooking Silvia Lehrer Another name for wise forethought is economy. Wise forethought is very much on everyone’s minds. And when it comes to cooking, leftovers are always on my mind, and I’ll make a little extra at dinner tonight for lunch tomorrow or even another dinner. I roast a chicken almost weekly, for the joy of succulent roast chicken – and for the leftovers – and when one is cooking for two there’s plenty of it. Shred the meat for a quick salad with curry and mayo, for warming through in soy broth

More Bang for Your Bulk with scallions and shredded carrots thickened with a bit of cornstarch to serve over noodle pancake or in fried rice. Carve the breast from the frame, remove the meat from the bones, and, with all the juices left in the carving dish, you’ll have the perfect base for chicken stock. When I purchase a piece of center cut salmon, I always buy extra. The obvious possibilities could be a salad or salmon croquettes or, for a little more glamour, toss pieces of salmon into linguini with leek and mushrooms. I may not cook it often, but love to prepare a vegetable risotto, then, by design, leftovers the next day are pan sautéed into the most savory risotto cakes. Leftover vegetables and/or potatoes can be added to a soup or dressed with vinaigrette for a salad – I could go on and on. From time immemorial creative cooks have applied their imagination to an excess of food that may be transformed into palatable, attractive and wholesome dishes for the next day’s lunch or supper.

Michelle Obama’s organic White House garden has gotten many Americans thinking about the potential in their own backyards. Malia and Sasha’s professed preference for fresh fruits and vegetables is the reported cause for this ground-breaking event, but one assumes Ms. Obama is well aware of the larger implications of her action. Due in part to Ms. Obama’s initiative, an estimated 43 million households will be keeping edible gardens this season. Citizens are not only considering their diminishing budgets when they plant a garden and reduced grocery costs, but also the positive impact their action has on the eco-system. An organic garden with varied plants does wonders for the soil, and by not supporting the giant corporations deeply entrenched in monoculture farming techniques, Americans can make a contribution to changing the way we think about food. Fresh food can in turn change the way we think about cooking. Fresh ingredients can turn a tired recipe into something marvelous – not to mention the inherent sense of pride that accompanies the preparation of a meal made from homegrown ingredients. It’s a feeling of connection to our sources that has been long absent in American culture. Ms. Obama’s decision to create a backyard garden is a timely one. With the failure of our previous way of life finally glaringly apparent, it’s the perfect time to step back and make some dramatic changes. Fortunately, dramatic change can be as simple as planting peas. – Amelia Persans

2-3 carrots, trimmed and peeled with a vegetable peeler into long thin strips
For the pasta: 1 pound linguine 1 tablespoon coarse (kosher) salt
1. Bring a large pot of water to boil, put in salt and pasta for 4-5 minutes until al dente. Drain and quickly run the pasta under cold water to stop the cooking. Spread on a clean kitchen towel and pat dry. Toss pasta in a bowl with 1 tablespoon oil to coat.

DAN'S PAPERS, April 24, 2009 Page 67 www.danshamptons.com
Letters GO GREEN! Dear Editor: I am writing in response to your February 7, 209 article, “Keeping It Clean, At Least For Now” by April Gonzalez I am writing this letter to inform you of my opinion, being I am current resident of the East End. It is horrible that amendments such as those stated in the article need to even be up for approval. Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman is trying to prevent further contamination from fertilizers in waters surrounding not just Suffolk County, but also all of Long Island. Being an island always surrounded by water, it is important to keep our waters clean. If you know that the uses of fertilizers are harmful to us and our waters and the use of such products are prohibited from November 1st to April 1st, why is it not prohibited all year long? Shouldn’t the use of products such as fertilizers, pesticides and other harmful chemicals be outlawed? The article states that an amendment that was proposed earlier in the year was declined by western legislators saying that the fertilizer regulations were too drastic because it would have prohibited the use of fertilizers within 100 feet of any body of water. The new proposal has now been dropped to twenty feet and is awaiting approval. There are things that can be done now and within our control to prevent us from hurting ourselves and other living things to make our future better, without crippling our current society. So if things like littering or non-proper disposal of certain chemicals are illegal, shouldn’t something like fertilizer that is chemically made and put in our earth and water on purpose by people be illegal? With natural and organic product demand at an all time high, Long Island farmers could easily stop the use of fertilizers and meet those demands. Let long Island residents start by saying no to all fertilizer use and make our island and water a better and cleaner place. Sincerely yours, Craig Castorano, Riverhead Via snail mail A tough pill to swallow, but it has to be done. – D.R. GOOD DEEDS Dear Dan, I read your column on way to NYC on the Jitney today about the wonderful Ms. Whitby and feeling those poor, hungry men! When I go out next week, will call her and offer to help! Thanks for making me aware. When I drive by (have a house in SH) and see those men waiting, I
e-mail Dan at email@example.com
always feel terrible. Maybe now there is something I can do to be proactive! Best regards, Patty Bigelow Via e-mail Feed the hungry. –D.R. PHOTOS LIE Dear Dan, Another reason for the highly unflattering photos is from using poorly situated flash. As you can see there is a black shadow behind and to the left facing side of the mug shots. Using flash up close washes out your completion and exaggerates any imperfections. Best regards, Michael Lerner Via e-mail Advice from the expert. –D.R. TAXING ISSUES Dear Dan, During these unprecedented economic times when foreclosures are at a record high, it was appalling to learn that many Long Island school districts have approved hefty pay raises that will push salaries to over $140,000 a year for the highest earners. So much focus is placed on education and the pivotal role it plays in Long Island’s future. Needless to say, education is vital to all of us. However, at what cost? In all actuality, the future will be compromised for all of us if property taxes are allowed to escalate to disproportionate levels. What future will there be for both students and parents on Long Island if their homes have to be sold because they cannot afford to pay the excessive taxes and are forced to relocate? Taking into consideration that we are in the midst of the worst economic environment since the Great Depression, the vast majority of homeowners across the Island can no longer afford to dig deeper into their pockets to absorb these increases. It truly is ironic. At a time when concessions should be made by teachers and administrators to adjust to a sinking economy, their unions are busily negotiating for more money. When does it ever end? Typical increases for the coming school year will average 6%. It should be kept in mind that school costs account for about 66% of property taxes. Of that, 56% of those costs go to salaries and benefits. School taxes have always been a volatile issue on Long Island. Although numerous options have been discussed in the past on ways to reduce crushing
taxes, progress has been limited. Whatever happened to consolidating school districts to reduce costs? Why can’t pay freezes be initiated during this economic misery? Until concessions are made by school districts, the average homeowner will continue to be overwhelmed with financial pain. Many will be forced to contact the local real estate and put their homes up for sale because they no longer can afford to meet the demands of teachers and administrators who look the other way and have no mercy during these frightening times. Is this the Long Island we really want? Jason E. Hill, Ridge, New York Via e-mail Consolidation of districts would eliminate duplication. –D.R. GOOD OLD DAYS Dear Dan, I’ve been thinking, people are just like a family book. Like myself, as I said, I’ll be 73 this summer. When I was a young person, well there wasn’t any modern electronic machinery. No TV until I was about 10 years old. I guess I listened to the radio and read a lot. There was a peddler by the name of Harry. He had a flat bed wagon pulled by horse. My grandmother purchased fruit and vegetables from him. I sometimes wonder how I manage especially without the cell phone. I’m starting to feel that I don’t communicate. No so ... what I recommend is writing. Mail things, old photos, old stories, newspaper clippings of famous family relatives, and the not so famous relatives. Perhaps a little box of interesting items you no longer need, or a funny card to brighten up someone. They will enjoy receiving it. Why? You ask. Because someone is thinking of you and them. Guess what? Soon you will be communicating. Soon you will be building bridges or connecting with your family again. I include this in my family fun category. If you get together, have a “Pizza Party”, that seems to work out. Sincerely, Dianne Balducci, Hampton Bays/New Hyde Park Via e-mail PS: To all moms or caretakers: Happy Mothers Day! To all dads. Call for the pizza. To all families, there’s nothing like it. Try it, you’ll see. Nothing really brings people together like the internet, though. –D.R.
Police Blotter Painted A man in East Hampton reported to police that somebody broke into his house and threw paint everywhere. The door that the man broke into the house with was opened using a rock. Police have opened up an investigation, and are going to question Jackson Pollack about the incident as soon possible. Whoops An intoxicated man who was pulled over by police in Southampton attempted to get out of a DWI by explaining to the officer he had nothing to drink that night. Of course, things didn’t quite add up when he fainted in front of the officer from being too intoxicated. When the man sobered up, he apologized. Dog Problems A fight between two dogs broke out at the Springs Dog Park last week. No arrests were made, and the two pooches seemed to get along just fine once a few biscuits were thrown around.
There Is No Money A man in Hampton Bays attempted to rob a clothing store that had no cash in its drawer. When the owner explained there was no cash to steal the man became confused and ran out of the store. Identity A man in Sag Harbor reported that his identity had been stolen after he found several large charges to his credit card that came from pornographic websites. The man later withdrew the complaint when he found out his teenage son was responsible for the charges. Fireworks Another brazen display of fireworks were spotted going off in Montauk last week. Apparently, there are some guys out there who went a little crazy while shopping for some firecrackers.
BB Gun On the North Fork, there was a report of a BB gun damaging the window of a local man’s home. The incident is being investigated by guys with real guns. Smack A man at a bar in Hampton Bays punched another man, who had made a remark about his wife, in the face. The incident was resolved after the man that was punched in the face apologized. No Pay A couple ran out the door of a restaurant in Southampton without paying after running up a tab of about $100. The restaurant manager believes that the couple did not have their wallets on them and left the restaurant out of embarrassment. One of the employees of the restaurant knows the couple, and if they do not come back to pay for their meal, the manager intends to call the police. - David Lion Rattiner
