Soap Opera Traffic Jams as Many in EH Try to See What Happened Today (called a “pen”) climbed up onto the nest, laid her eggs and then got on top of them to keep them warm. She will sit up there night and day, week after week and month after month until they hatch in June. She is happily up there today, just a few dozen yards from the Montauk Highway, and less than 10 yards from James Lane, the road that goes behind
By Dan Rattiner The fastest way for me to get to work in Bridgehampton from my home in Springs is to drive down Three Mile Harbor Road to Cedar Street, turn right, and then proceed through various back roads to wind up back on the Montauk Highway in Wainscott. It’s not any shorter in miles. But it is shorter in time. If I take the other route, which is to go down Three Mile Harbor Road straight into town with a turn right at Town Pond to Wainscott, there are four traffic lights. And there are occasional tie-ups. These days, however, I am going to Bridgehampton right through town. And the reason is because of an ongoing soap opera that is underway every day at the right turn at Town Pond. I have met a number of people in Springs who are doing the same thing this year. It is quite something. The stars of this soap opera are two, beautiful, white, mute swans. The supporting cast includes ducks, turtles, children, adults, cars, sea gulls and an occasional goose. Early this spring, for the second year in a row, the male swan, with the help of his mate, has built an enormous stick and twig nest for her in the shallow water of the southwestern corner of the pond. It is about 10 feet around and about four feet thick. It is within five feet of the shore. Around March first, the female
the pond. As for the male, the cob, he swims around the nest and he’s angry this time of year. He will stay angry until the chicks hatch, and then he will remain angry for a week or two after that. People say, “Isn’t that cute? The swan is angry at everybody.” But it’s no joke. Get too close and you will get pecked. You will get pecked again until you run away. And there is no insurance company that I know that will cover
you for injuries suffered from being pecked by a swan you got too close to. A sign has been put up. PLEASE MAINTAIN A SAFE DISTANCE FROM THE SWANS. THANK YOU, it says. The cob, with his shifty little yellow eyes, runs a tight ship. He has set up an invisible perimeter around the nest. Either you’ll figure it out or he’ll do it for you. If the pen is totally focused on staying up there keeping her eggs warm day after day, the cob, dealing with his anger, is not as focused. His concerns include not only protecting her and the eggs and the nest itself, but also gathering food for her. He will take food to her (I haven’t actually seen this) and he’ll give whatever it is to her beak to beak when it seems safe. What a guy. The marvelous thing about all of this is just how they have come to exhibit this behavior. They have little tiny heads with little tiny brains in them. People will tell you they are being controlled by their instincts. I think it is more than that. If humans can miniaturize a computer chip to the size of a pin-head, certainly God can give a swan a pin-head brain with great intelligence. The soap opera is whatever is going on down there that day. I wake up in the morning, get dressed and eagerly get in my car. Traffic could be terrible on Three Mile Harbor Road. I could (continued on page 16)

Planned Theme Park in Riverhead
Hoot Owl Defense Riverhead Asks EPA to Waive Hoot Owl Rule in Calverton By Dan Rattiner Every year, the New York State EPA reviews which property in its jurisdiction would be on its “wish list” of properties it would like to purchase if it had the money. Such properties usually include pastures or wetlands or beaches or woodland. Now, this past week, the EPA once again reviewed eastern Long Island. Riverhead wants it to promise not to add a vast 3,000-acre patch of land the Town owns in Calverton to the list. The reason is that it doesn’t want the Town Supervisor Phil Cardinale to have a heart attack. Last summer, as the Town of Riverhead was negotiating with a developer to bring a $500
million theme park the size of Six Flags to a large abandoned airport where jet planes were tested years ago, a bunch of endangered hoot owls landed in the grass and gave every indication they might hang out there for awhile. This parcel consists of flat land, concrete runways, broken down buildings and weeds. No endangered animal life of any kind is in there. And that included hoot owls. When environmentalists spotted the hoot owls, however, they pounced. It was true that the hoot owls were not indigenous to the area. But there they were. They had appeared from the sky one day, on their migratory route between Canada and North Carolina, and, apparently
hungry and noting some rodents or berries or bugs in the weeds below, had swooped down for a bit of lunch. And they stayed. The development being discussed includes an artificial ski mountain, an equestrian facility, a lake with ferry boats to take you across, a convention center, a safari park, a water park and a rejuvination resort. Immediately, a halt was called to the negotiations. Cardinale, who sees this development as the key to the revival of this historic old town, almost had a heart attack when told about the hoot owls. How long would they stay? It was two weeks of hell. You couldn’t go in there and shoo them (continued on next page)
THE LONG WALL AT THE BEACH IS COMING DOWN By Dan Rattiner Billionaire Ron Baron, who last fall built a seven-foot reinforced concrete wall across protected dunes in front of his oceanfront mansion in East Hampton, is now removing it. He has his demolition permit. And as you read this, workmen are busy with a special kind of saw that can carve through reinforced concrete. Five hundred feet of the 1,100-foot long wall will be removed before May 15. Another 300 feet in front of his property at the western end of East Hampton Village (the wall extends into the jurisdiction of the Village at the western end) will be removed after the Village approves
an application he is making to them. Only the 300 feet in front of his property at the eastern end of it, which is in East Hampton Town, will, at this time, remain standing. What will happen to that part of the wall will be decided at a later date. Baron built this illegal wall late last summer without a building permit and without informing anyone he was going to do so. When strollers along the ocean side of the dune noticed it, he at first said it was simply a retaining wall. When it was clear it was a wall high enough that it would have to be scaled by any climber or hiker wishing to walk through
the dunes, he said he would fight it in court. The fine for building a wall or other structures on protected sand dunes, even sand dunes you personally own, is $500 a day. Five hundred dollars a day is pocket change to a billionaire. A huge public outcry ensued after photographs published in various newspapers showed what he had done. The dunes, or in this case the double dunes, which extend about 500 yards from the beach back to the buildable land on Further Lane, are natural features that have been in place since the last ice age 20,000 years ago. No one before has ever built a wall (continued on next page))

on it designed to keep people out. Until this. At this writing there is no deal regarding the 300 feet that remain. After the wall was put up, the Planning Department announced that it would not even consider a plan by Baron to divide this huge parcel of land — the largest vacant parcel on exclusive Further Lane — until he took his wall down. Baron owns about 40 acres here. He had a preliminary plan submitted to the Planning Department to divide it into several building lots. There is little doubt that Baron could have simply outspent the Town in court. It is unlikely he would have ever gone to jail for what he did. He’d just keep paying the $500 a day. Nevertheless, the local judge, ruling in favor of the Town, demanded that Baron personally appear in court to talk about his property, something that any billionaire does not necessarily want to do in these circumstances. The law that would require Baron himself to appear was written long ago to protect any private citizen from hiding behind a corporation and just
having lawyers appear in his stead. The property is owned by 260BC LLC. But the law says that in these circumstances, when there is a violation, the judge can call any person that appears to be controlling the property and in this case, that would be Baron. Several postponements ensued. And then, out of the blue, Baron’s lawyer, Tina Piette, appeared at Town Hall with an application for a permit to tear down 500 feet of the wall. In it was the promise to apply for a permit to tear down the 300 feet in the Village. For both teardowns, Baron would restore and re-vegetate the dunes he damaged. In there was a request for a zoning variance to the Zoning Board of Appeals to be allowed to keep the remaining easterly 300 feet up, and a request to the judge that Baron’s name be removed from the ordinance violation charges. In addition, he asked the Town to agree to release the hold on his subdivision request. All this is fine with the Town. There is no deal that he can keep the final 300 feet up. He is merely applying for a variance to be able to do so. The ZBA is free to reject that application. We hope that they do. You have to show a hardship to get a variance. Keeping others out of property is not a “hardship.” But we shall see what we shall see. Anyway, he made a mistake and he is rectifying it — 75% of it so far anyway — and we applaud him for doing that. I think others do too. Incidentally, the wall is seven feet high and
sits on three feet deep footings that go down into the dunes. The approved request allows for the below ground part of the footings to remain, since removing them would require heavy equipment to further disrupt the dunes. Their tops will be one foot below ground. You won’t see them, at least until the sand shifts, at which time, presumably, they will also be removed.
(continued from previous page)
away. If you did, you’d get arrested and could serve jail time. God forbid that the hoot owls would settle in or make nests. Everybody held their breath. And then, finally, after two weeks, the hoot owls took off and flapped down the coast to somewhere else. And the negotiations resumed. As I said, this land, known now as the “Enterprise Zone” has been repeatedly combed and found free of endangered species. But who knows what other endangered things could one day soon come down from the sky? To keep Cardinale healthy, the request was made: Make Enterprise Park off limits to endangered species. Please agree not to put it on your wish list. After a bit of grumbling, the EPA announced this year’s list and Enterprise Park is not on it. And maybe it would not be on the list next year. But that’s a maybe.

Shinnecock Resurgence Not Since 15th C. has the Shinnecock Nation Been So Visible By Dan Rattiner The Shinnecock Indian Reservation is on the brink of receiving a preliminary announcement of federal recognition. Last week, a spokesperson for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Nedra Darling, said that a deadline has been set by the federal government to make an announcement one way or another about the recognition before November 10. So it can come at any time. Once that is announced, the wheels move quickly and final recognition follows in a matter of months. The reservation first made its application for federal recognition in 1977. Ten years ago, realizing that nothing was happening and
things were not likely to happen at The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) for another generation, they began a vigorous campaign to get to the to the “front of the line” for the approval. It would be impossible for the Shinnecocks NOT to be recognized by the Federal government. The tribe has a long and well documented history, from the appearance of the first English settlers and the helping hand the Shinnecocks offered them — they taught them whaling, growing corn, how to build the early domed homes they lived in and how best to get through the cold winter. No shots were ever fired. It was a peaceful, neighborly welcome. The Shinnecocks since then have played an
important role in local history, mostly getting the short end of whatever stick was under consideration. Attempting a rescue of sailors aboard the four masted schooner Circassion that had wrecked on the rocks during a terrible winter ice storm in Mecox 100 years ago, dozens of young braves froze to death as the rescue went very wrong. By the 1950s, when I moved here as a teenager, the tribe, consisting of about 600 people, was suffering great poverty on its Southampton reservation, governed by Tribal Elders who kept their business separate and secret from the Southampton community. They (continued on next page)
HOMELESS AND HUNGRY IN SOUTHAMPTON By T.J. Clemente It’s a paradox — an issue that stirs passions and is as complex as so many of the problems facing the country today. But this one has one difference — it has a human face. A human Latino face. In recent weeks, photos have shown the “dwellings” of the homeless in Southampton up in the North Hampton Bays Woods, made of wooden loading dock skids and other refuse, while local publications report stories about the closing of a soup kitchen on the donated space of a private vendor. In all, it has drawn a lot of attention to the plight of the jobless poor on the East End.
The focus is on undocumented immigrants. All told, it is not a pretty picture, particularly when there are reports of children who have had no breakfast showing up daily at the Springs School without lunch money, or men waiting for cash day labor by the 7-11 in Southampton and begging for food money. It seemed like only yesterday that these men were demanding a minimum of $150 per day in cash to work on the projects all around the Hamptons, when the great expansion of wealth was white hot just two years ago. Now there is practically no work and the anger of some of the frustrated populace seems to be boiling
over, and aimed at these easy targets. “If they were starving dogs, everyone would be pitching in to help feed them and find them homes,” said one older man who then added, “But they don’t belong here.” And that seems to be the problem. As the saying goes, there’s no right way to do the wrong thing. When Mayor Mark Epley tried to address a human angle of the illegal day workers issue, protesters harassed him at his Southampton Village home. Epley sees the situation as tragic, but also as politically toxic. In Southampton there are protesters – reportedly (continued on page 22)

future date. Six months ago, the Suffolk County Legislature created a board to shepherd through such a resort casino, should the Shinnecocks gain recognition. Chief Gumbs is on that board. Suggested locations include a site near the Long Island Expressway near Yaphank, part of the old Grumman property in the pine barrens just east of Riverhead and the former Parr Meadows racetrack property north of the Expressway in Wading River. All proposals are in very lightly populated areas where jobs are scarce. All are in areas where highway construction could easily create easy access. Just five years ago, police arrested Chief Gumbs as he ordered bulldozers to clear several acres of tribal-owned land in Hampton Bays, where it had been hoped the tribe might put a bingo hall. Three years ago, the tribe sued to take back all the land that it had given to the settlers in Southampton — land that would have included Southampton College, the Shinnecock Indian Reservation and half of downtown. It lost. But in continually losing, the Shinnecocks have won. Ten years ago, the tribal chiefs decided that those running the reservation should be selected by democratic vote. Eight years ago, they decided that women should have the vote and that women could even be tribal chiefs. Five years ago, they created a public relations office on the reservation where people from the outside could make enquiries about things going on. The KEEP OUT signs came down. A health
clinic opened up. Today, at large holiday dinners, they often invite and honor guests from the outside to come and partake with them. And this past week, there was more news. Nishwe Williams, a 29-year-old squaw who lives on the reservation with her family, is reviving the Miss Teen Shinnecock Pageant. It was last held in 1996, and the winner of it was Williams herself, who was 16-years-old at the time. She told the Press about her wonderful memories of being crowned Miss Teen Shinnecock when she was a teen; about her pride in being a member of the tribe. “I want other girls to experience that same feeling,” she said. Fourteen girls from the reservation have already been chosen to participate in this pageant, which will be held on Saturday June 13. There will be two categories and two queens. One will be for high school girls in grades nine through 12, and the other will be for junior high school girls in grades six through eight. The winners will be judged by a panel of people from the Shinnecock Nation, from other tribes and from local political officials in the surrounding communities. The girls will be judged on etiquette, native dancing, regalia, evening wear, sportswear, dancing (both tribal and non-tribal), knowledge of American native history and talent, both native and non-native. They will be asked to perform a song, a poem or a dance of their choosing. The winners will lead the Shinnecock contingent in the Southampton (continued on page 22)

wanted nothing to do with the rest of America. Signs at the three entrances to the reservation said KEEP OUT. If you ventured in, you were chased out. But I cannot think of a single group that has undergone such a great transformation as the Shinnecocks of Southampton have during the last 15 years. The doors have swung open. There have been a series of legal clashes with the American community that surrounds the 750-acre reservation — the tribe even sued several surrounding towns and organizations from time to time — losing practically all decisions on the grounds they did not have federal recognition status. But at no time did the Shinnecocks ever voluntarily back down from whatever they thought was right. And now, federal recognition is just around the corner. Chief Lance Gumbs, one of the three tribal chiefs who spearheaded this community through the transformation, says that if nothing else, the plight of the tribe — barred from owning homes or getting credit cards or other services in America — was certainly brought to the forefront of this community, and as it soon turned out, to the BIA. This bureau and several judges were forced to look at a clearly defined tribe recognized by the state that is not recognized officially by the feds even after 30 years of trying. Last year, a judge put the Shinnecocks at the front of the line. With recognition, the tribe will be able to receive loans and funding for all sorts of things it was not eligible for before. It will also be eligible to create a casino on Long Island at some

Think/Create Three Projects Combine Rare Design, Common Sense By April Gonzales Can eco-chic be stylish to the point of elegance while being comfortable? Even luxurious? Several projects across the twin forks indicate that not only are people committed to the concept of reducing their environmental impact, they’re devoted to good design. Private homes, commercial buildings and large scale residential developments have taken seriously the new Leaders in Environmental Education (LEEDS) standards in the design process. LEEDS has several new award categories to help architects and landscape architects in their design. For example architects can work with engineers to create efficient maintenance sys-
tems that minimize building waste and transportation costs during construction, and reduce energy usage by the homeowner. Landscape architects can use native plants and outline organic maintenance programs. Glynnis Berry, a local architect from studio a/b in Orient and Riverhead, recently welcomed people at the door of a project she designed and built in Greenport. The Peconic Land Trust had organized a benefit for their Charnews Farm Project that inviting the public to see a LEEDS gold standard home, and quiz the builder and the designer on how the standards were incorporated. “It’s a lot of small things that add up,” Berry
explained, “a lot of it is common sense and taking the extra care.” (Architects have always thought this way, but the LEEDS concept is becoming more visible and manufacturers are getting on board with new building products.) The house in Greenport was built of structural insulation panels. Berry designed templates for the panels, which were precut by the manufacturer. Although the builder had some tweaking to do, the result was a tightly fitted structure with very little heat loss. Materials overruns were substantially diminished since the contractor only bought what he really needed. This means more efficient climate control and less construction (continued on page 24)
GREY GARDENS: THE FILM REVIEW By Dan Rattiner The wonderful thing about the original documentary about Grey Gardens, which has won many awards over the years, is the viewer’s sudden discovery that two older high society ladies, one the mother of the other, are living together in a time warp in a great falling down mansion near the ocean in East Hampton in utter filth and squalor, and they think that everything is perfectly fine. The trouble with the film Grey Gardens is that it steers away from this “present day” situation and tries to encompass the entire, complicated period of these people’s lives between 1938 and 1978 in a low budget hour and a half HBO movie. It is too big a bite to take and accomplishes little, in spite of excellent performances by the two leads, particularly Drew Barrymore. It also doesn’t help that, for budget-
ary reasons, it was entirely filmed in Canada. In order to hide that fact, the director is forced too often into close ups at the wrong time that result in never really capturing the sense of the place, which is something very important in a movie about a house. What he does capture is the fact that each actor is required to play their characters at ages 15 and 50 (Drew Barrymore) and at ages 45 and 80 (Jessica Lange) and that between close-ups and make-up, they can’t do it successfully. It just doesn’t look real. I think the screenwriters were misled by the sensational 2005 Broadway play of the same name and the same story which, unlike the original documentary, has the first act take place in the house in 1938 when it was all elegant and spiffed up and the second act in the house in 1978 when the documentary was filmed. Christine Ebersol won all sorts of
awards for her performance in this Broadway show. She plays the mother in the first act and in the second act the daughter now the same age as the mother was in the first act. It’s a brilliant concept. But here you have an all-over-the-place movie about 23 cats living in squalor, a philandering husband who, in 1938, is out of money, the Second World War looming, Jackie Kennedy (played by Jeanne Tripplehorn) showing up at Grey Gardens in a scene that is written not much better than soap opera, the young filmmakers making the documentary, some befuddled attempts by local health officials in 1978, raccoons eating garbage, Big Edie singing Cole Porter around the piano with her boyfriend in 1938 and I don’t know what else, flashbacked and flash forwarded all over the place.

Williams has already raised half of the expected $2,000 she will need to host this event. She anticipates spending $1,200 on the two crowns. The rest will be used for promotion and incidentals. On May 23, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., there will be a bake sale at the Shinnecock Community Center to help raise the final funds needed. The Shinnecocks have come a long way and today, while maintaining their native traditions, play a major role in East End affairs. It’s been quite an accomplishment.

paid professionals – demanding the deportation of undocumented immigrants because they are costing American Union workers jobs or keeping wages for low-end workers down to sub poverty levels. This crisis has other human faces — one being Sister Briege Lavery, a Catholic nun with the Sisters of Mercy in Water Mill who championed the soup kitchen for hungry unemployed day workers. She will continue to fight the good fight in the name of the poor. In the meantime, what has happened recent-

ly has not been Southampton Town’s and Village’s finest moment. With a perhaps over zealous Southampton Village building inspector single handedly closing down a volunteer soup kitchen set up at the Southampton Tire property, it is time to take a look at the real issue. The federal government, with Democrats in control of the House of Representatives, Senate and the White House, have avoided taking a strong position on the legal way to deal with this dilemma. They have in effect left the towns and cities of America with a carte blanche on creating policy with no regard to the law. This has created ill will among neighbors who seem to be polarized along two major positions, compassion for the less fortunate or disgust for illegals who are causing their school taxes to go through the roof due to issues ranging from increased curriculum needs in the local schools, health care and housing issues. So until there is more direction from Washington and state/local leaders (Charles Schumer, Tim Bishop), mayors like Epley will have to tip toe on a fine line between human decency and the actual law in dealing with this mess. Finally there are the faces of the children who are the real victims of their parent’s decision to make a go of it in a new country and try to navigate around the law for their advantage. With no money, these children are going hungry. It is a shame it has come to this with many feeling no compassion for human suffering because their incomes are going down while their local taxes are going up. Many locals feel their lives and their children’s future lives are being compromised by the undocumented immigrants. It is not a pretty picture and there’s no silver bullet solution. The whole dilemma has resulted in embarrassing behavior on the part of some East End residents who feel distain for suffering individuals because their ethnicity seems to say “without documentation.” Is it racism, frustration? Is it wrong? Immoral? The answer lies in where you stand. The solution will come at a huge cost and at the moment many argue the country has more pressing problems. That argument is leaving local towns, including those on the East End, twisting in the wind.

debris. The house is modern, open and airy in feel. A line of intimate spaces is intelligently laid out in a way that allows you to see through the length of the house. This plan takes advantage of the east/west orientation of the site and incorporates passive solar heating with large south facing windows. An elegant stairway runs up along a wall of beautiful wood cabinets on the north side of the house that actually creates greater insulation from heat loss against cold winter winds. Hot water is point of source or on demand through out the house. Anyone who’s traveled to Europe may have seen a simple version of this type of system. The hot water pipe itself is heated so that as the water passes through the pipe it comes up to the desired temperature. This
eliminates the need for a water heater, reducing not only that energy drain but heat loss that happens between the basement and the bathroom or kitchen. Location is also a part of a LEEDS qualification. Within walking distance to the village of Greenport, the owner also likes the short stroll to the beach, the bus, ferry or church as a way to stay out of the car. Location also came into play with the Water Mill Ateliers, a new commercial development of retail and apartment space. Its LEEDS platinum status may set a new standard for commercial construction on the East End, but how the design fit into the aesthetic of the hamlet was of more concern to locals. The buildings’ façades have large windows which seem to be a design deriva-
Can a University Be Big and Small at the Same Time? You bet. And new and old, too. Meet Stony Bones! He’s easily the biggest (and oldest) freshman on our campus. This 70-million-year-old dinosaur is tame now but was once a fearsome predator—even a cannibal. (He was discovered on Madagascar by our own Dr. David W. Krause’s team of paleontologists.)

tive of the garage style fenestration at the Hampton Coffee Company next door, settling the new building nicely into the neighborhood. Trees flanking the building will provide afternoon shade and soften the edges, but the landscaping in this project was also in large part what helped earn the higher ranking in energy efficiency and environmental concern. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Olde Towne subdivision in the Village of Southampton. As the project has taken shape over the last year it is clear for all to see that careful planning and good design have produced more than just another elegant tree lined street. The layout was based on a canopy of trees along Wyandanch Lane and the history of four acre lots granted to the original settlers of the area. There is an extension to the existing nature preserve, and a wildflower meadow with native plants. Perhaps best of all, the original plan designed by Hart/Howerton landscape architects of New York for Robert Gianos, is that all potential homeowners will have to consent to reduced pesticide use. Over 40 landscape chemicals have been banned from the site. Gianos has already made an enormous commitment to this philosophy by using bio-dynamically produced compost and compost teas while planting the large London Plane trees. Gianos wanted to set the standard for new development, which some may say has been long overdue, and he asks “Don’t we all want to live in a clean environment? This gives people good food for thought when they are getting ready to build their dream home.” Gianos is proud to have, in his words, “Taken history and married it to the landscape and land planning to create an environment, putting in long-term sustainability and organic land practices.” For years, both the North and South Forks have been highly focused on land preservation. But now the spotlight seems to be on conserving energy and minimizing the impact of a seeming trend toward overdevelopment. Bringing in only the materials specified for a job alone can reduce traffic, garbage and landfill needs. In the future, it may be that planning regulations stipulate that some LEEDS standards are met in all new construction as a way to reduce its impact on the community as a whole. For now it is reassuring to see that those on the cutting edge are here in our area, practicing good design and common sense.

directing, by the way, is mediocre. And it is made worse by the problem of Canada. I came out of the film thinking well, they get A for effort for trying to be true to the original, but then they should just have shown the original. I also give A for effort to the two actors who had to try to show emotion in the elaborate body suits and make up. I’d also say that if you never saw the Broadway show or the documentary, then the film makes sense and is worth seeing. What really happened here back then is worth seeing, and this does tell the whole story, though free of passion. Otherwise, pass it up.

Honoring the Artist: Lisa A. Dabrowski This week’s cover artist and native North Fork resident, Lisa A. Dabrowski, not only paints but composes songs and writes poetry and children’s books. She’s also an accomplished craftsperson and videomaker. While her talents are diverse, there is a common thread running through Dabrowski’s professional and personal pursuits: her penchant for local history and family tradition. Thus, her subject matter captures North Fork’s indigenous life styles and farmland as well as its historical landmarks. Q: You have lived on the North Fork all your life. How did your family come to play such an enduring role in this area? A: My grandfather was a duck farmer here and managed the Long Island Duck Processing Plant in Riverhead. My great grandparents and grandparents on my father’s side came from Poland to settle here. I guess it reminded them of home. I went to Poland to see the cemetery where my great grandfather is buried. Q: You made a documentary of that place called Lomza Cemetery. It evokes a wonderful sense of lyricism and timelessness. Speaking of
history, your grandfather was an interpreter for General Pershing. How did your love of history manifest itself in your commitment to the North Fork? A: I raise 11 ducks where I live, and I plan on using them for educational purposes so children will know about this area. I’m also involved in Hallockville Museum Farm in Riverhead, and there’s a wonderful museum called Fort Corchaug near where I live that was the biggest trading place for wampum. The town of Cutchoque got its name from the Fort. Q: Your writing and art often come from your personal history of growing up on the North Fork where you had sheep and chickens and a garden. A: Yes. I just wrote a children’s book that should be out in early summer. My sheep were an inspiration for my book characters. I didn’t draw the characters in the book, but made them with a metal frame and clay. I couldn’t capture
their personality if I drew them. This first book is part of a series and it’s called, Mr. Woolly in How the Barn Was Painted Purple. Q: Your painting is also inspired by your childhood experiences. A: Yes. I’m actually building a duck house for my own ducks, and I’m doing a painting of it. Q: What about your writing and music? A: I have a poetry book called The Shutters of My Soul. And I sang my own songs on stage at the Vail-Levitt in Riverhead, the first performance on stage there since the 1920s. I’ll also be singing at the Big Duck Spring Fling May 2. Q: What do you want to do in the future? A: Something memorable. My dream is to have a small farm and to preserve the land. — Marion Wolberg Weiss Contact Fran Cobb at 631-727- 5342 about the Spring Fling. Dabrowski’s website is ladproductions.com

The Sheltered Islander A Lake By Any Other Name... Chargoggagoggmanchauggauggagoggchaubun agungamaugg. It may look like the result of someone falling asleep on the keyboard, but it’s actually the name of a lake near the town of Webster in central Massachusetts, and it has a local chamber of commerce scrambling to fix not-so-glaring spelling errors on highway signs. The Worcester Telegram & Gazette reports that the signs are mistakenly spelled “with an ‘o’ where a ‘u’ should be, at letter 20, and an ‘h’ instead of an ‘n’ at letter 38.” So, the correction will actually lower the lake’s Scrabble word value from 134 to 131 points. The U.S. Board on Geographic Names says that the lake’s name is a Nipmuck Indian word that translates loosely to “You fish on your side, I fish on my side, nobody fishes in the middle.” I know what you’re thinking, yes I checked and I can’t find any phonetic pronunciation for this lake. It’s a local secret, but any East Coast resident understands the need to keep Indian pronunciation secret. One of the privileges of living in former Indian territory is that only the locals know how to properly pronounce the local Indian names. One of my guilty pleasures is waiting for a visitor to try to pronounce our local Indian names correctly. Naturally they fail miserably and then I can laugh with an imperious attitude and enjoy a fleeting sense of superiority that says, “Ha! you fool! How could you even think you
could complete with my brilliant intellect? Just listen to your pathetic attempts to pronounce Mashomack.” But what really piqued my interest in this article was: Who was the person who noticed the misspelling? Just how slow were they driving to notice this mistake? I gave it a lot of thought, because it vexed me. I think I figured it out. I believe the misspelling was caught by a middle school English teacher who has car pooled by that sign every work day for roughly two years. How did I arrive at this? Only an English teacher would notice this. Only an English teacher who had to know the correct spelling would notice it. Only a middle school English teacher would have the duty to make students learn local spellings like this one. It appears the sign is next to a highway and on a curve, so doing between 40 to 55 m.p.h., the observer would only have a few seconds to see the sign. The driver could only glance at it, so it had to be observed by a passenger. Figuring the passenger looked closely for a few seconds at each passing, they could only have proofread a few letters at a time. Therefore, they proofread it in sections. A 45-letter word seen daily for a few seconds, minus the number of times she was a passenger on the days it wasn’t her turn to drive, plus the angle of the sun in the early morning, minus holidays and weekends, factoring in the occasional grafitti defacements, plus the price of tea in China, it all adds up: a middle school

English teacher. And it’s a good thing he or she did notice the error. It’s just this kind of chaos in the world that keeps me up all night. Many years ago, my ex pronounced Ronkonkoma, “Ronk-a-nonk-a-noma” to peals of laughter from my entire family. To this day, we pronounce it that way because we’re part of a that secret joke club that all families have. I was in San Rafael, CA and heard a woman in a department store telling the clerk she was shopping for her vacation in New York, she was going to “Pa-cho-go-gee” a.k.a. Patchogue. I laughed and corrected her because that was my right as a native Long Islander. Of course, living in California for my married years and married to a native Californian, I often struggled with the pronunciation of all the Spanish named towns, which seem to be most of the towns in that state. Not many Indian names that I recall, but lotsa Spanish names. Being a native New Yorker and seeing all these names ending in vowels, I naturally pronounced them Italian style. My ex and his entire family found my pronunciations hysterically funny, which shows how juvenile and sophomoric a sense of humor they possessed. Of course someone who’s never been exposed to these names would mispronounce them, and why is that funny? I had hoped that years of being exposed to my superior sense of decorum and class would help them, but one can only do so much.

by Dan Rattiner Week of May 2 – 8, 2009 Riders this week: 12, 424 Rider miles this week: 87,525 SUGGESTION BOX DEMAND The wooden suggestion box that stood by the Hampton Bays turnstiles for six years without incident has still not been returned. However, this past week, our office in Hampton Bays received a note in an envelope that also contained a small wooden piece of the suggestion box. It read, “Each week that we do not receive the $1,000 we have demanded, we will send you another piece.” Nobody at our offices knows about any request for $1,000. And there was no indication where such funds could be left or sent if the Commissioner decided to acquiesce to this unreasonable demand. Workers, measuring the piece of the box sent and comparing it to pictures of it, have calculated that if future pieces match this piece, the full consumption of the box will occur sometime next January. LE SOMIELLE, THE DINING CAR! The great French Restaurant Le Somielle has opened a branch on the Hampton Subway. This is a big coup for us, as this restaurant has the most stars possible in the French review book, Michelin, five, I think, or six. Anyway, it is the dining car on each and every subway train in our system beginning today on, right in the middle,
so people can access it from either the front of the train or from the back. The restaurant is being run as a franchise. Featured on the menu are frog’s legs, fresh boar’s tongue, truffles, pheasant under glass, squid, venison and some gooey thing found at the bottom of the Mediterranean that as yet does not have a name. It is just like being in France. We hope you enjoy it. The dining car opened three days ago as what they call a “soft opening” to get the kinks out. It’s official opening will be this Saturday night when special diners, such as Kim Cattrall, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, Drew Barrymore, Justin Timberlake, Madonna and Alec Baldwin will be on board for a private party especially for them to enjoy all the yummies. Owner Francois du Lac Vegetebalasoupcon will be on hand to greet everyone. He’s French. LETTER: I want to express my disappointment in what you call a dining car on the Hampton Subway. I went to it three days ago when it opened for the first time. It was packed with people, but by waving a $50 bill I got a seat. The service is wonderful, and I suppose the food is wonderful, too. The trouble is, it’s slow. I got on in Amagansett. And by the time I reached my destination in Shinnecock 28 minutes later (everyone is so proud of the promptness of the trains and I appreciate that) I’d just placed my order and had
to get off. Question: How do I get my $50 back? COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE As this letter just came in, I would like to answer it at this time. How about this for service? Here is my answer. For crying out loud, Le Somielle is one of the world’s great restaurants and is surely worth the wait. It is no secret that the Hampton Subway system is in the shape of a 80-mile circumference, flattened donut and that therefore it is possible to get on it anywhere and just go round and round. Service at a restaurant such as this might take three hours, and it is true that this might mean two or even two and a half round trips. Get on the subway at Amagansett, and then go around twice and three hours later get off at Shinnecock. That’s what you do. For you to suggest that an entire five-course, four-star French dinner be consumed in just a 28-minute period between Amagansett and Shinnecock misses the point, for crying out loud. As for your 50 bucks, mister, consider it a lesson learned. Our souvenir book One Year on the Hampton Subway is now out. It chronicles the riots, escalators gone berserk, explosions, boxing matches, subway car races and the 90-pound raccoon that ate an environmentalist during the attempt to remove her from the subway air vent in Hampton Bays. We all remember that. It’s on sale in all Bookhampton Book Stores (Amagansett, East Hampton, Sag Harbor and Southampton.) Or by it online at danshamptons.com or over the counter at Dan’s Papers in Bridgehampton, the Hampton Jitney OMNI in Southampton, or by calling 631-537-0500.

The CPF Tax: What Goes Up... By Dan Rattiner Just to give you an idea of how everybody in the United States was completely behind the idea that the real estate boom was going to go on forever, you ought to take a peek at the 2009 first quarter numbers that have just come out for the CPF revenues for the East End towns. In case you have forgotten, CPF was thunk up in the late 1990s as a way to get the wealthy people who were driving real estate prices up and up and up to help out in getting the bucks together to preserve some of the land for future generations. CPF stands for Community Preservation Fund. Before it, somebody would buy a farm for $20 million and the open space people would faint dead away. After CPF, somebody would buy a farm for $20 million to develop it and they would have to pay 2% extra as a tax to CPF. So sometimes properties would get developed. And sometimes the town would step up to the plate and match the purchase and save it. Lots of land got saved using this method. The developers happily paid. And the savers happily bought from time to time. Over the years, from the 1990s when it began all the way up to 2007, the amount of
money paid into CPF just skyrocketed. In 1999, for example, for the whole East End, $13.2 million went into CPF. In 2007, the total was a staggering $96 million. I know there were five towns involved in this, but if the average town budget in 2007 was $60 million, the CPF total, to be used for land preservation only, averaged $20 million. Of course, all the towns could mortgage some of these purchases to the expected future CPF income for the next 15 years. What the hell. If a house that cost $400,000 in the 1980s was now selling for $2 million, who could deny that this house would soon be selling for $5 million? There were those who predicted that the annual CPF for the East End would soon rise to EQUAL the town budgets in a few years. The
towns would run out of open space to buy. Well, the first quarter numbers for the CPF income for 2009 are in and the amounts contributed to it are stunning for their paucity. The 2007 CPF, as I said, was $96 million. In 2008 the CPF was $56 million. And for 2009, if things continue along at the pace they have established during the first three months, the CPF for the year will be $15 million. You have that right. CPF revenue, based on the gross dollar sales of real estate transactions will have collapsed by more than 80% in two years. How this will affect the budgets of our individual towns, which have already committed many millions of dollars of CPF every year through 2020 to future payments for property already bought, shows just how blind everybody was. For example, in East Hampton, the annual amount mortgaged to future fund income is more than $4 million a year. Thatâ€™s a pretty careful bit of mortgaging if the CPF is $30 million, as it was in 2007 for that town. If you take in $30 million every year, you can afford $4 million for stuff already bought. But if the CPF stays its course for the balance of 2009, the total donation to CPF will be just (continued on next page)

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner God and The Yankees No curse word can describe how angry I was last week watching the series between the Yankees and the Red Sox. Rivera blowing a save simply boggled the mind. Pettite’s pitching weirded me out, and Ellsbury’s steal of home base had me breathing in and out of a paper bag. We were even getting lousy calls on stolen bases. I was ill, physically ill. It doesn’t help very much to have plenty of Red Sox fan friends, who suddenly become people I really just don’t like in general when I watch a rivalry series like the one last week. “He was out!” I texted Tom Swiminer, our delivery manager here at the paper who is from Massachusetts. “A great call,” he responds back as I wolfed down nachos in a depressed eating frenzy. Where does he get the nerve? Am I in bizzaro world? I know it’s way, way to early in the season to get too excited, but I was angry at the universe. I’m from New York, and as far as I’m concerned it is my God given right to have a baseball team that consistently beats the Red Sox. I looked out at the universe and said my plea, and then the universe granted me sunshine, and lots of it. I cannot believe how insanely gorgeous it was last weekend. It was almost impossible to be depressed with the weather we had last weekend on Long Island. On Sunday in East Hampton, we had a high of a perfectly perfect 67 degrees according to weather.com. Boston,
on the other hand, had an absolutely miserable 86. HA! Some how this made me feel much better about the ways of the world. Screw you Boston. I don’t know why, but every time I see Papelbon get up to pitch, I just want to punch him in the face. Is it me, or does he look like an all around jerk? Like the kind of guy who would key a car while drunk and think it’s funny. Like the kind of guy who acts like he’s tough, but when it comes down to it is really just a big wuss. He’s got these wild eyes that are such an act and he sort of flares his lips when he breathes in a deliberate and annoying way. It’s almost like a Zoolander kind of face. Who does this guy think he is? A guy with eyes like that is on something. Screw you Papelbon. I digress. The weekend was truly amazing and included kayaking, canoeing and catching up with some old friends. At one point during the weekend I found myself in sheer awe of the ocean. There is nothing else in life that has been able to put me in awe on so many different levels so consistently. I even can get tired of nachos if I eat too many (okay, not really true), but I could stand in front of the ocean and look out at the horizon day in and day out and still be fascinated. Nothing beats it. Even still, it was tough to get the bitter taste out of my mouth about the Red Sox sweep, no matter how many nachos I ate, and I ate many.

$4.7 million. Whatever gets taken in goes to what’s been already bought. And that’s that. I think all of us, watching what happened over the last 10 years, just plain liked it, except for the fact that the average person could no longer even THINK of buying a house in the Hamptons. For the locals, this was painful. The children of the locals would be moving away unless the parents conveniently died exactly when the kids came of age so the kids could inherit the house. The rule of thumb that a roof over your head should cost you one quarter of your salary was out the window. In fact, for the average citizen, your salary was probably one quarter of what a roof over your head would cost — and it would just be a shack. It indeed was la la land and way out of whack. This wasn’t great, old masters being auctioned off at Sotheby’s. This was a roof over somebody’s head. And now, of course, there are people who used to have these roofs living in parks in Oakland, Tulsa and Portland in tents. And there is NOBODY living in their houses. Well, that’s a whole other article, I suppose. Hopefully, it will all come back into place, but perhaps without the unbridled, unregulated and uncontrolled F rated securities that in the past were reported as Triple A by so-called regulators. We’ll be smaller and leaner, but the CPF could settle in at $50 million a year and things would be just fine. And this time without the danger of a collapse happening again.

BUSINESS Givin’ You the
Bridgehampton Nt’l Bank Glowing
By T.J. Clemente Bridgehampton National Bank (Bridge Bancorp, Inc) released its 2008 annual report last Friday at its shareholders meeting, announcing a 12% earnings growth. The bank with the mantra of being “Safe, Solid and Secure” actually is — when most banks aren’t. We asked BNB CEO Kevin O’Connor, why? In just his second year at the helm, O’Connor smiled and said, “We are a relationship bank. We grow through creating new relationships and growing existing ones.” So how did the bank weather a storm that has so many other banks on the brink? First of all, Bridgehampton never swayed from its business model focused on commercial loans rather than home mortgages. In fact O’Connor said Bridgehampton’s loan portfolio is just 15% home mortgages, which were granted only to bank customers. None are in foreclosure. BNB resisted the temptation to throw common sense out the window and pursue the crazy home mortgage frenzy. Secondly BNB does not sell off its mortgages or commercial loans to other institutions — all loans stay in house. That process was partly responsible for the instability of other banks and insurance institutions that gave unverifiable loans. “BNB holds on to all of our loans. We are a portfolio lender,” is how O’Connor phrased it. BNB always practices due diligence and proper underwriting when making any loan, the sound banking way. However when the banking troubles surfaced in the nation last fall, BNB in a cautionary move froze salaries above the V.P. level, but did not cut employee benefits. In fact the bank is opening up branches in two new locations, Deer Park and Shirley as well as building a new branch in East Hampton. O’Connor noted that, in his two years, BNB has experienced less turnover for employees which saved money in training, and made the bank’s internal workings more efficient. So how does the bank make money? “We are a commercial bank, we center on commercial lending and commercial real estate,” said O’Connor, adding that BNB has a relationship with many of the largest, oldest companies on the East End that have long, successful histories of making sound business decisions. But O’Connor stressed the bank always does due diligence on every loan to protect the shareholders. “We do banking the way it’s suppose to be done. We always have.” O’Connor admitted that he believes retail business in the Hamptons is quietly up 1-2% over last year. He understands some small retail stores are not doing as well and that car sales are not stellar. But he and the bank have faith in the resiliency of the East End. “We have that ocean,” he said, meaning people will always flock to the shore in the summer. O’Connor believes that many banks are “gun shy on taking on big development projects.” He notes that doing this put some big banks in big trouble. He personally hopes that commercial rents will be adjusted to help keep tenants in place, believing that perhaps in some special cases commercial rents will actually go down. As for seasonal home rentals, while professing not to be an expert on this subject, he believes that the next three weeks will be very important not
only for home rentals in the Hamptons but in forecasting how the summer will go and determining if the local real estate market has bottomed out. He “hopes” we are near the bottom, and believes it’s unlikely that the market will fall and create new low levels, barring unforeseen conditions. “A lot depends on tourists coming out here,” he said. “With the less expensive gas, the tourist will have more discretionary income.” As for home sales O’Connor predicts the market will start seeing more “transactions.” In the longterm view, he is an optimist. He knows the weather plays a huge role in everything too, but he noted the Hamptons, like BNB, has weathered many storms. O’Connor is excited about the plans BNB is
making for next year to celebrate 100 years of existence. Many events are being planned to thank the community for holding up its end of the relationship with the bank. O’Connor understands relationships and traditions, noting that Timothy Maran, Albert E. McCoy and Dennis Suskind were re-elected to the Board of Directors. The released 2008 Bridge Bancorp (BNB) annual report (for the period Jan. 1December 31, 2008) showed total assets at $839.1 million, total deposits at $659.1 net income expenses at $8.8 million up from $8.3 million in 2007. Lastly BNB is a nationally chartered commercial bank with assets over $800 million dollars. It is one of the top 20 best performing banks in the United States.

Over The Barrel... with Lenn Thompson
Talking With Politicians About Green Energy On The North Fork Medicare and Social Security. ”We clearly have to attack carbon” Bishop told the crowd. He said the House could pass a version of the bill as soon as this week. But he’s not so sure it would pass the Senate, where the legislation would ultimately be finalized. Here’s what Bishop said about cap-and–trade theory, “In the wake of AIG and the bank failures we are all nervous about giving Wall Street something else to trade because there is potential for manipulation.” Morgan Goodwin of Cutchogue said, “Fixing our energy crisis is creating green jobs, and they are secure and they are local”. He’s a Solar Thermal Technician for a company called Eastern Energy Systems who helped put the event together. There is good deal of alternative energy work already underway on the North Fork. Right now there are a handful of wind turbines, which you may have seen driving through Southold or Riverhead. Gary Minnick, CEO of Go Solar based in Aquebogue, says his problem is not a shortage of people looking to convet to solar or geothermal systems, but a lack of educated and experienced installers. He says his business has doubled since last year, with at least one customer a week switching to solar water heating. Both Southold and Riverhead towns have taken progressive steps on the alternative and renewable energy front. They both have drawn up codes for farmers to install wind turbines on their land. “The problem is the code eliminates a high percentage of us from the start,” says Dave Page Co-owner of Shinn Vineyards in Mattituck. The current code in Southold requires you to have a farm of at least 7 acres to install a wind turbine, and it needs to be setback 300 feet from any property line. Shinn already runs its B&B and farmhouse off solar power. But now they’re trying to become the first winery on the east coast to power their vineyard
with wind. There are several federal grant and tax incentive programs that make wind energy more affordable. Mr. Page tells me LIPA is even offering him a fifty thousand dollar rebate when his wind project is complete. But Mr. Page says because his farm doesn’t fit the criteria, he has to file for a variance. He says it could be months or even years before his wind project gets the green light from the town. Homeowners Joseph and Ann Petrauskas of Cutchogue are hoping to get the Town of Southold to draw up code that would allow them to legally install a wind turbine on their property. Right now that code doesn’t exist in either town. So where do we stand now with green collar jobs on Long Island? The federal stimulus package allots $90 billion dollars for renewable energy and energy conservation efforts across the country. Out of that money Nassau and Suffolk Counties will receive about $24 million over the next year to fund “energy effective activities,” according to Congressman Bishop. Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell says they have taken important steps toward becoming a more energy efficient town. Southold plans to install solar panels on the old Peconic School on Peconic Lane. They also plan to replace the town’s existing cars with a fleet of hybrid vehicles. Mr. Russell also told me Southold is applying for grants to build a wind turbine at the Peconic School recreational center. It seems to me our access to alternative and renewable energy lies heavily in the hands of our lawmakers. But I think there are simple things we can do in our everyday lives to help control our climate on a smaller scale. And for many people on the North Fork. Bob Dylan had it right, “the answer my friend, is blown’ in the wind”.

By Henry James Salmaggi North Forkresidents are getting behind the growing green trend. This weekend dozens of farmers, residents and environmental advocates packed a Town Hall meeting in Cutchogue to learn about a major energy and global warming bill being debated in Congress. The basement of the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church was jammed on the sunny Saturday afternoon to hear about the bill. People wanted to hear what the new legislation would mean locally and to see what’s being done on the East End to make renewable and alternative energy more accessible. “The most important thing is to show people how attainable alternative energy is,” Joseph Petrauskas of Cutchogue told me. He and his wife Ann have solar panels on their home and are now looking into a Geothermal heating and cooling system, as well as a wind turbine for their house. “It’s phenomenal to get a check from LIPA once a year.” Here’s a little about the bill. Last week lawmakers in Washington used Earth Week as the back drop to debate the Clean Energy and Security Act. The bill was drafted by House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman, D-Los Angeles, and Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., who co-chair the energy and environment subcommittee. It would impose a mandatory limit on greenhouse gases and give electric utilities pollution allowances. Many environmentalists want all emissions allowances to be auctioned off under a cap-and-trade system. Most people at the weekend meeting support taxing big businesses on their carbon output. The Waxman-Markey bill aims to cut U.S. emissions to 20 percent below 2005 levels by 2020, and to 83 percent below by 2050. Southampton Congressman Tim Bishop was also at the meeting in Cutchogue. He said one idea is to have revenue generated from the cap and trade system fund

IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO GET A FREE
CUP OF COFFEE In these hard economic times, what could be better than free? Come in and celebrate the ﬁrst Tate’s Community Day, Monday, May 4 and get a free cup of coffee. All day. And be sure to try a sample of one of our famous, fabulous snacks with your coffee. Such as our renowned cookies: Chocolate Chip or new Chipless Wonder, Oatmeal Raisin, White Chocolate Macadamia, Butterscotch Pecan, Sugar or Chocolate Chip Walnut. Why are we doing this? In recognition of our Community Day. Because it really does take a village for a community to prosper. It takes the efforts of everyone, buying local, being local to ensure that a community will remain vibrant no matter how hard times become. Of course, we know that it’s hard to buy local when the internet and big discount stores offer ever lower prices but is the web or a mega-store a replacement for a village? Hardly. So come in, have a free cup of coffee, try a sweet snack and say hello. We’d love to see you. Oh, and what you save with us? Spend it elsewhere locally. It’s a start. And don’t forget to tell your friends and family.

Mother’s Day – Montauk Style By David Lion Rattiner For a special day with your Mom, there are few things better than a trip to Montauk, with countless activities and places to go so that you can show your mom what she means to you. Montauk, in addition to its natural beauty, with ocean access walking distance from just about every location in the hamlet, offers everything from wonderful restaurants to perfect little stores that exist only there. Here are some ideas for a special Montauk Mother’s Day. Without a doubt, you should look into what Gurney’s Inn has to offer this Mother’s Day. Gurney’s, with its Saltwater Spa and Salon, is a great place to bring Mom. What could be better than a massage, facial or skin treatment and then a lovely dinner with an oceanfront view? Each time anybody goes to Gurney’s, they are treated as if they are a part of the family, and it’s that family warmth that makes Gurney’s a great Mother’s Day choice. If massage is still on your mind for Mom, another fantastic local massage and day spa is the Deborah Thompson Day Spa, which has a Moroccan feel and top-notch therapists. I’ve never known anybody who wasn’t completely wowed with the place and the high level of training all of their masseuses have. For Mother’s Day gift shopping in Montauk, there are plenty of places to check out. One place that is worth a look is Kai Kai Sandals, where you can buy a pair of sandals that have been deemed “the most comfortable sandals in the world.” Try on a pair and you’ll know what I’m talking about. You can also find an excellent selection of Mother’s Day gift cards at White’s Drug Store in Montauk, which is located just off the circle. If you are heading out to Montauk with Mom, make sure that you get in a good healthy beach walk. The ocean in Montauk is unlike any other on Long Island thanks to the amazing cliff landscape
that covers the coast. A walk through Ditch Plains is pure magic with family, and you won’t be the only one out there doing just that. It’s what it is all about. If you have a surfer Mom, Montauk is your ultimate gift destination, with surf shops galore, including Air and Speed Surf Shop and Plaza Surf and Sports. If your Mom is a bookworm, you can stop in at Barnacle Books, which offers a large variety of books that are handpicked by the owner and shoppers that go there. If you are going to take your mother out to lunch,
Montauk has endless options when it comes to good food. In Montauk you have The Crows Nest, Gosman’s, Caffé Monte at Gurney’s as well as the Sea Grille, The Lighthouse Grill at The Montauk Yacht Club, Mannucci’s, The Breakwater Café, Dave’s Grill, The Dock, Harvest, John’s Drive Inn, The MTK Café, O’Murphy’s, Shagwong and others. Nearly every restaurant in Montauk has longstanding appeal. Make this Mother’s Day memorable and head out to Montauk for one you won’t forget.

Tulla Booth Photo Gallery Pamela Williams Gallery in Amagansett is my last and farthest east recommendation. Mother’s Day is the last day of its “Dog and Pony Show,” which explores this seemingly simplistic theme from a variety of different psychological and compositional angles. The gallery is open Friday through Monday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located at 167 Main St. When you’ve had your fill of visual sustenance I would suggest Mary’s Marvelous down the street for more tangible nourishment. It’s a friendly place with cookies, just like mother used to make.

Now that spring has finally arrived, local public gardens are opening up. They are all worth the trip to investigate their grounds for new ideas, plant knowledge, the need for a break or even a picnic with the kids. Bridge Trust Gardens is now open to the public, making a transition from private owner ship to becoming part of the Peconic Land Trust â€“ the new stewards of this imaginative and lovingly tended garden on Mitchell Lane in Bridgehampton. Rick Bogusch has been chosen to take over as head gardener from former owners Harry Nyams and Jim Kirkpatrick, the designers and creators of the wonderful spaces within
A New Garden for the Public
the boundaries of the former potato barn and depot right next to the railroad tracks. Bogusch is well aware of the history of the property and of both Nyams and Kirkpatrickâ€™s intentions in designing and planting their gardens. Upon entering, a woodland garden gives way to a perennial bed thatâ€™s being revamped. The Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons has donated digging time in exchange for material to sell at their upcoming plant sale. The urge to run through the magnificent Alice in Wonderland like beech hedge and arched tunnel may keep you from heading right for the main entrance where you pass by black and white beds of yucca mulched with coal. The lure of the lavender parterres spread out like a carpet out in the lawn may take the eye and feet in another direction that leads one to the rose bed below. Or the eye might go to the groupings of topiary animals to the north. In terms of gardening chops, most impressive is the knot garden below the old potato barn that the two creators converted into a living space and greenhouse/workroom years ago. The chain link boxwood hedge requires a good eye and a steady, experienced hand â€“ this is where Boguschâ€™s mettle as a seasoned

gardener will be measured. It is by far my favorite part of the garden. Elegant and intense, the intertwining knots and adjoining beds reference local history in the seashell mulch from The Seafood Shop in Wainscott and the plant materials, some used locally for years as medicine and dyes. Bogusch has changes in mind for the gardens and some structural issues to work out, but that will be revealed over time. And thatâ€™s how you should visit all of these gardens â€“ to see them in different lighting and over the seasons as well. The Land Trust intends to open the garden on Friday evenings for picnics and perhaps some wandering musicians. When it comes to technical expertise, Madoo on Sag Main in Sagaponac gives Bridge Trust a run for its money. Attended to in every detail by Bob Dash and his trusty side kick Carlos, (a genius in his own right as a gardener), the magical gardens seem to expand space. This is a small property made large by the way it has been developed into garden rooms that lead one into another, but are complete in themselves. The intimacy of each space makes you stop and take notice of all the details, making the walk longer and the visit very worthwhile. But youâ€™ll have to wait until May 15 for them to welcome you in. Long House Reserve, Jack Lenor Larsenâ€™s 16-acre series of gardens and sculpture forums, opened last weekend in a burst of magnolia and cherry blossoms under planted with daffodils, with the stone sculpture of Gonzalo Fonseco on view (see Photo Pages). Whether you come for the art or the garden as art experience, give yourself plenty of time to get lost in here. Make sure you can return at least twice to see not just the seasonal changes in the gardens, but the constant renovations and new ideas Larsen presents. He is far more inclined to change things just for the sport of it or because a new idea or exhibit demands, than you or I would on our own land. It makes Long House an exciting place to visit. The garden is a great venue for their many events, like the upcoming Container as Art Invitational in June entitled â€œPlanters On and Off the Ground,â€? which will be juried by P. Allen Smith.

XÜÜ? T ÑtÜxÇà
By Susan Galardi
Some folks believe that people were created in the image and likeness of god. Others believe that god was created in the image and likeness of people. There’s a similar debate in regard to children and their parents. Adults ooh and ahh over newborn babies, seeing what they want to see, the same way some people anthropomorphize the every twitch of a dog’s ear. As family members and friends ogle a red, wrinkled baby who looks more alien than human, the first thing you hear is: She’s beautiful! The second thing is: She looks just like you! When our son was born, and as he has grown into a little boy, most of my partner’s friends and family are in strong agreement about the uncanny resemblance between the two of them. I can see it clearly myself: Same face, different hair and eye color. But after he was born, my friends and family would whisper to me on the side, “I can’t believe how much he looks like you.” I would smile demurely, proudly, and whisper back, “I know – don’t say anything about it please.” I should point out here that I have absolutely no genetic or biological connection with our son. Every one of my friends and family members knows that. But just ask them and they’ll tell you: He looks just like me. A few years ago a friend of mine and his wife had their first child. I went to visit him, and her family was there, carrying on about how much the little girl looked like the mother. They went into great detail about the shape of the face, the spacing of the eyes, the bridge of the nose, the position of the ears – Yes! She was the spitting image of her mother. Shortly my friend’s family came in. The mother’s
He Looks Just Like ................. YOU!
family gave them their due, allowing them to pass the baby around from person to person as they removed themselves to the buffet table in the other room. My friend’s family carried on about how much the little girl looked like her father. They went into great detail about the shape of the face, the spacing of the eyes, the bridge of the nose, the position of the ears – Yes! She was the spitting image of him. Oh, the mother and her family must be so disappointed! The child didn’t have a trace of her! After all that work… Adults blindly decide which parent the child favors, and they speculate on his or her race and ethnicity. In the case above, my friend is African American; his wife, Caucasian. You guessed it. The
black side of the family looked at her ears and predicted the rich shade of brown she would ultimately be. The white side of the family pointed out how fair her skin was, and that she really had no “black” attributes at all. What a shame that there was no connection with the father … My family does the same with our son. In terms of nationality, he’s mostly Irish and Scottish, a good part Dutch, a smidge Italian and about 1/8 Romanian. I don’t know much about Romanians. I’ve told him they’re gypsies, and made up wonderfully colorful, romantic stories about them. I did watch a Romanian film that was in the Hamptons International Film Festival last year. None of the actors looked like him. Well wouldn’t you know it, my partner and I met a 100% Romanian recently. We were very excited about Hudson meeting him, too. How exotic! When they met, we asked our new friend if he saw any Romanian in Hudson. Definitely, he said, Hudson looked very Slavic – especially the face shape. But my partner’s family says our son has “the map of Ireland on his face.” My Italian family believes he is the poster child for Northern Italians, with his light hair, fair olive skin and green eyes. In all honesty, I actually believe he looks Dutch – the coloring, certainly his height (the Dutch are the tallest people in the world). But that breaking with tradition is not usual in the child look-alike game, which is really very simple. Ask anyone who your child looks like, and you’ll get a very clear answer. But it won’t be determined by genetics or nationality. It is determined 100% by who is doing the looking.

Life S tyle Raving Beauty
By Janet Flora
Good Time to Take a Powder Some women fear it, others swear by it, and many just don’t know how or where to use it. Powder – used correctly can give your skin a flawless finish – used incorrectly, can settle into lines and make you look flat and dull. Whether you are using pressed, loose, dual finish (those that can be used wet or dry), or the newer mineral formulas, before applying a speck read this. Powders can be applied with the traditional puff, or sponge (which are sometimes packaged with the product), or a fluffy brush. The thing to remember is, if you use a puff you will always get a heavier concentration of powder, and thus more coverage. Using a brush will give you a lighter application, since you are literally dusting it on the surface of the skin. To discover the best powder for a specific result, I turned to Sephora Pro Beauty Team Member, Nikki Oxley and asked the following questions: Q: Who should use loose powder? And, when should we use loose powder? A: Loose powder can be worn by anyone! When to use loose powder depends on the actual type of the powder. If it is a foundation powder it can be used for flawless overall coverage. However, if it’s a finishing powder, it will set the foundation and mattify the skin. Some of my favorite loose powders include Cover Effects Mineral Powder, Smashbox Halo and Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals.
Q: Is translucent always best with loose powder? A: It really depends on customer preference. A translucent powder is usually used as a finishing powder, which will give your skin a gorgeous glow. In some cases, a translucent powder also comes in the form of a compact, which is great for travel. I recommend using a loose powder first, then touching up with a compact powder throughout the day. Q: Who should use mineral powder and, when should we use it? A: Anyone can use a mineral powder. However, this type of powder is great for people with sensitive skin as well as any eco-friendly shopper. Just remember to use this product over your daily moisturizer. Q: Is mineral powder for those who need minimal coverage? A: Mineral powder is very versatile and can be applied for minimal coverage as well as for maximum coverage. Q: When is it best to use dual finish powders? Is it better to use it alone or over a foundation?
A: An advantage of using dual finishing powders is the option of coverage. This powder can be applied dry for a more natural, lighter look or with a damp sponge for fuller overall coverage. A dual powder can be used alone or over foundation. When applied lightly over a foundation, it will take the place of a finishing powder. For more coverage, I recommend applying this powder with a dry sponge. While keeping in mind the great advice of Nikki Oxley, also remember to keep whatever applicator you’re using clean. Keep your blush and powder brushes separate. If you’re using a sponge or a puff, replace it every month. Also keep all the tops of powder jars and compacts closed tightly after use to avoid debris and bacteria. If you’re still unsure about using powder experiment with less expensive drugstore brands or ask the advice of a professional in Sephora or your favorite cosmetic counter. Tell the pro exactly what you’re trying to achieve, or any problems you’ve had with using powder in the past. This is a sure way to take your powdering to the next level.

The Splendor of Sammy’s Beach Saturday morning I set out for East Hampton to walk the two-mile loop along the peninsula bordered by Gardiner’s Bay and Three Mile Harbor called Sammy’s Beach. When I arrived it was raining, and the parking lot and entrance to the trail were submerged. Two hours later I returned and found the tide had receded, the rainwater was draining away and the sun was peeking through the clouds. The parking lot and entrance to the trail were still flooded, so I parked on the road shoulder and walked straight out onto the Gardiner’s Bay shoreline, looking out at Connecticut. As I approached the Jetty, to my left I could see Cedar Point County Park. A little farther out in the water was Shelter Island; northward, Orient Point jutted out from the North Fork. I was able to see Connecticut beyond that, Gardiners Island to the right, and across the inlet, Maidstone Park Beach. I then proceeded east along the beach towards the inlet to Three Mile Harbor. By the inlet I found a sandy road that ran south along the opening into the harbor. Post oak and red cedar are common here. I noticed a number of different animal tracks. The rain had softened the outline of the raccoon tracks, but the fox tracks were sharp and obviously recent. Where the sandy road reaches the end of a spit that extends into the harbor, it turns back north along the edge of the Goose Neck Creek marshland. From here you can see Dayton Island and across the inlet, the Marine Patrol and Town Dock.
As you head north along this road, watch for a yellow “Foot Path” sign that leads you through a small opening in some snow fencing. Because of the receding tide and the draining water, the ground was covered with migrating fiddler crabs. Hundreds of these air-breathing crabs rapidly scuttled out of my way as I walked the trail. The mature male fiddler crabs have one large claw that they carry in front of them like a fiddle. This claw is as long as the crab is wide and comprises fifty percent of the fiddler’s body weight. I had read that the claws are used for attracting female crabs, but it looked more like a formidable weapon to me. Out of curiosity I picked up one of the males and tested the claw with a finger. If it had grabbed a less calloused part of my anatomy, its attack would have drawn blood. Along the trail you can see many prickly pear cacti. This is Long Island’s only native cactus. During the summer they have yellow flowers and in the fall, pretty red fruit. A trail diverges from the wider road; I followed the trail left along the creek back towards where I had parked. This is not an easy place to find, so I took extra care in writing these directions: Heading east on Montauk Highway, after making a
left turn at the traffic light by Town Pond, you enter the Village of East Hampton Rt. 27 becomes Main Street. You will pass Rt. 114 and Newtown Lane on your left. Immediately after you pass Newtown Lane and before the Hook Windmill, bear left onto North Main Street. After 0.6 miles you reach a Y intersection; Springs Fireplace Road runs to the right, up the east side of Three Mile Harbor, while Three Mile Harbor Road runs left, along the west side of the Harbor. Bear left along the west side of the Harbor onto Three Mile Harbor Road. After 1.3 miles, turn left onto Springy Banks Road (note the Settlers Landing sign). After 1.9 miles, Springy Banks Road turns into Hands Creek Road; bear right following the Settlers Landing and Hands Creek Harbor signs. After 0.3 miles bear left onto Alewives Brook Road. To stay on Alewives Brook Road, you would have to make a left turn, but instead you continue straight across the Ely Brook Road/Alewives Brook Road intersection onto Old House Landing Road. Travel 1.5 miles and when you can see in the distance where the Road dead ends onto the Bay, look for a right turn onto Sammy’s Beach Road. Follow this road 0.6 miles to its end, where there is a small parking area on Gardiner’s Bay.

Arts & Entertainment k.d.lang Ends Year-Long Tour with a Bang at WHBPAC By Tiffany Razzano As four-time Grammy winner k.d. lang wraps up a year-long tour, her last stop will be a fundraiser for the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on May 2. “Long Island’s our last show after a year,” she said. “I imagine we’re going to be in a crazy mood.” With a diverse and deep repertoire of music to choose from – ranging from country to pop to jazz – lang says she plans on filling her set list mostly with songs from her most recent album, 2008’s Watershed, as well as fan favorites from her back catalogue. On Watershed, her first album of original material in eight years, lang donned the producer’s hat for the first time. And already lang is planning on hitting the studio to once again record some new songs after taking a brief respite. “I’m going to take some time off and then see what’s been stored up and what comes out,” she said. “It feels really, really good to be playing original music again.” Though she’s quick to add, “You never know what will come up,” pointing to the Grammy she won for her 2003 collaboration with Tony Bennett on “It’s a Wonderful World.” Born and raised in Canada, lang started out her
career as a country western singer songwriter – she actually formed a Patsy Cline tribute band for a period of time – and eventually found her way to Nashville. She also was a backup singer for Roy Orbison, who chose her to record a duet of his song “Crying.” This earned her the first of her four Grammys in 1989. Since then, she’s released a number of critically acclaimed, genre-hopping albums –

the country-esque Absolute Torch and Twang (1989), the adult pop of Ingénue (1992), Drag (1997), an album of smokethemed songs, and 2004’s Hymns of the 49th Parallel, where she pays homage to Canadian songwriters such as Leonard Cohen, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. “I really just hear it all as music,” said lang of her predilection for switching musical genres with each album. “I just record the kind of music I like to listen to. I try not to think of it as genres.” Also, over the years lang has become known for her activism, which includes her support of both gay and animal rights. With her position in the media spotlight, she uses it to champion her causes whenever she can. “My activism really stems from actual, alternative choices I’ve made for my lifestyle,” she said. “It’s not political. To me, being a celebrity is an opportunity to communicate to the masses.” k.d. lang will be at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on May 2 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $225, $175, $125.

Dreadful Beasts Talk at Canios Interview of and by Amelia Persans Q: What are you lecturing on and why should anyone care? A: I’ll speak about my series of drawings, “Dreadful Beasts.” The project explores universal themes through family documents. Q: Sounds awful. What are the drawings and why that title? A: The drawings are based on the scrapbooks my great Aunt Bobbie religiously kept of her first two cats. She hated cats intensely and joked about running over the “dreadful beasts” with her car, before experiencing a complete feline conversion. Q: And this is interesting to others because……? A: There is something inherently funny about these documents – letters and greeting cards addressed to animals, unwrapped catnip Christmas gifts, etc., but there’s also something sweet and sad about the role these surrogate children played in my great aunt’s life. The two cats in the photos function as a type of mirror to our own desires, distresses and joys. Q: Hmph. One last question, did you get dressed in the dark this morning? A: No comment. “Dreadful Beasts” artist talk: Friday, May 1, 6:30 p.m., Canio’s Books, 290 Main St. Sag Harbor. Reception at 7 p.m. The show is on display until May 21.

Exit the King at the Barrymore
Geoffrey Rush’s portrayal of the megalomaniacal ruler King Berenger in the Broadway revival of Eugene Ionesco’s 1962 absurdist comedy Exit the King is pure genius. Granted, Ionesco may be an acquired taste, but working with a new translation by Neil Armfield, who also directs, Rush’s brilliant interpretation of the dying monarch carries the rarely seen play to tragicomic heights. The King’s incompetence has left his country in near ruin, giving the evening a timeliness that feels all the more relevant in the wake of the Bush administration. When the play begins, Susan Sarandon, who plays Berenger’s first wife, Queen Marguerite, informs the King, “You are going to die at the end of the play.” But despite her efforts and those of the other members of the court, which include Lauren Ambrose (“Six Feet Under”) as the King’s mistress, Queen Marie; Andrea Martin as a hilarious lady in waiting; Brian Hutchison, a sublime riot as The Guard; and William Sadler as the Doctor the King refuses to relinquish any control, even though he has been in power for over 400 years. Striding the stage in his pajamas with a long cape trailing about 10 feet behind him and his crown slightly askew, Rush commands the audience
Art Commentary by Marion Wolberg Weiss
Geoffrey Rush and Susan Sarandon with an unyielding virtuosity that blurs the lines of tragedy and farce. His dying King Berenger holds on steadfast in utter denial of the truth. He delivers a capricious physical performance that embodies the expressionist style with a delicate balance of ambiguities that constantly remain visceral. His
vivid portrayal of human frailties is simply sensational as he takes us on an insightful journey to his ultimate acceptance of his imminent death. If the other members of the outstanding cast are not up to Rush’s theatrically stylized standard, they all nonetheless serve the text with varying degrees of achievement. The ending is especially difficult with Marguerite holding Berenger’s hand as he looks death straight in the face. Sarandon saves her best work for these final moments, giving the proceedings a poignantly moving fadeout. Armfield’s production, coming to Broadway via Melbourne, Australia, where Rush headed a critically acclaimed staging in 2007, is decidedly one of the most exciting events of the season full of rich ideas and metaphysical metaphors. Exit the King opened on Broadway at the Barrymore Theatre, 243 West 47th Street, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, on March 26, 2009. Tickets: telecharge.com, box office or phone 212239-6200.

DAN'S PAPERS, May 1, 2009 Page 47 www.danshamptons.com
Food / Dining Simple Art of Cooking Silvia Lehrer My grass is greener than I could ever remember – no doubt due to April showers and we sure had plenty of it. Yet green is more than a beautiful lawn. It’s everywhere – from ‘green’ energy efficient products, to the ‘green’ canvas bags being carried into supermarkets and specialty stores to carry out our groceries, to kitchens that are going completely green with ‘green’ materials from floors to counter tops. Yes, we all want to do our part to save the planet and to save ourselves, and one of the best ways is to simply eat local and to eat ‘green.’ The cool green colors of watercress, zucchini and leek combine to create a splendid ‘green’ soup. Leafy artichokes can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, but have you had a stuffed artichoke, Italian style, lately? I had the delectable artichoke below years ago in an Italian restaurant and have delicious memories scraping every last bit of the unctuous stuffing along with the meaty artichoke leaves between my teeth. The green flower-like creation makes a delectable first course and presents beautifully at table. With warmer days welcoming the spring harvest and farm stands opening at a quickening pace, the best is yet to come. STUFFED ARTICHOKE ITALIAN STYLE Serve 2 or 4 2 jumbo globe artichokes, about 8-9 oz. each Zest 1 lemon, then halve For the stuffing 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2-3 cloves garlic, minced 2 anchovies, chopped Reserved lemon zest 4-5 tablespoons toasted breadcrumbs, preferably homemade 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed 1/4 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese 3-4 cups chicken broth To finish 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1-2 cloves garlic, finely minced 2-3 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley 1/2 cup chicken broth 1. Cut off artichoke stem end evenly at the base. Discard the bruised leaves at the bottom and then cut
And Now ... Eating “Green” off points of each leaf with kitchen shears, spiraling the vegetable to about 1-inch from the top. With a serrated knife, make a sharp straight cut across to discard the upper portion. Separate leaves with your thumbs and pull out the purple leaves from the center to expose the fuzzy choke. Scoop out the choke with a melon ball cutter or grapefruit spoon. Rinse clean and then squeeze halved lemon over the exposed surfaces. Repeat with remaining artichoke. 2. For the stuffing, heat oil in a skillet and sauté the garlic for 40-50 seconds. Stir in the anchovies, lemon zest and breadcrumbs. Add capers, parsley and cheese. Stir to mix and remove from heat. Taste for seasoning. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 3. Carefully spread the leaves for stuffing. Spoon a little stuffing in between them, starting at the bottom, and then put about one tablespoon into the cavity. Repeat with second artichoke. S tand artichokes upright in a baking dish just large enough to hold them. Pour in enough broth to come about 1/3 the way up the sides of the artichokes. Cover securely with aluminum foil and bake about one hour or until a leaf pulls away easily when done. Transfer artichokes to two soup plates or halve them to serve four. Warm the broth. 4. Heat olive oil and sauté garlic for 30-40 seconds. Add parsley and stir to mix. Add one cup of broth, spoon the cooking liquid equally around each artichoke and serve warm or at room temperature.
WATERCRESS, LEEK AND ZUCCHINI SOUP Serves 6 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 2-3 leek, thoroughly washed, about 2 cups thinly sliced 1 1/2 pounds narrow zucchini, peeled and diced 5 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade or low sodium canned Coarse (kosher) salt to taste and freshly ground pepper 1 bunch watercress, stems removed 1/2 cup half and half 2 tablespoons minced chives 1. Warm oil with butter in a large saucepot. When butter melts, add the leek and zucchini and stir to mix. Cover with a square of wax paper to ‘sweat’ the vegetables for 6-7 minutes. Uncover, discard paper; pour on stock and season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, add watercress, adjust heat and cook at a brisk simmer for 25-30 minutes. 2. Purée the soup directly in the pot the soup cooked in with a hand immersion blender or in batches in a blender. Return to rinsed out soup pot, add half and half, reheat over low heat, taste for seasonings and serve with chive garnish.

DAN'S PAPERS, May 1, 2009 Page 51 www.danshamptons.com
Letters FLAGS Dear Dan, How many flags will we give away? How many sons and daughters will be led to their slaughter? We honor the fallen and dead, we should also honor the living. It seems to me, if you want to be free, there are other ways to save your country. Remember, after everything is said and done, you don’t have to carry a loaded gun. Richard Sawyer Sag Harbor Via e-mail Richard is a decorated Viet Nam Vet. – DR EH SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION Dear Dan, It is extremely important to elect Dr. Laura Anker Grossman on May 19 to another term on the East Hampton School Board. She brings 30 years of experience as an educator and 17 years of experience on the East Hampton School Board. She has been an advocate for higher educational standards throughout her career and has shown integrity in administration, transparency and budgeting. She is a consensus builder and has shown openness in all her dealings while on the school board. Her agenda is to improve the quality of education of our students. Dr. Grossman has also been instrumental in developing the award-winning, collaborative pre-kindergarten program with the East Hampton Day Care Center and Project Most, an after-school program at the John Marshall Elementary School. Both of these programs have improved academic performance and served the needs of working families. In these trying times, we need educators on the school board. They understand the educational process as well as our fiscal concerns. Gary Wohl Via e-mail Educators on the school board is good. – DR HEART HEALTH Dear Dan, Our present healthcare system is in dire need of an overhaul. Healthcare costs and insurance premiums are rising much faster than household incomes. And many of us are skipping or delaying needed care to
e-mail Dan at email@example.com
keep food on the table or pay our mortgages. Only comprehensive health care reform will provide Long Islanders with the high quality, affordable coverage we need and deserve. The American Heart Association notes that 15 percent of non-elderly adults with cardiovascular disease are uninsured and many with insurance struggle with the high costs of care. The uninsured with cardiovascular disease have a higher rate of death following a heart attack or stroke, compared to those with insurance. Our elected officials need to consider the challenges facing heart disease and stroke patients as we struggle to find quality, affordable care. They have the power to pass meaningful health reform that benefits all Americans, including those with preexisting conditions. For more information, visit heartsforhealthcare.org. Diane Trubia Centereach, NY There appears to be a doctor shortage. Big problem. – DR LIRR POLLUTION Dear Dan, The EPA, like many other government organizations never gets anything right. In the EPA’s list of air polluters that appeared in Newsday on April 18, the agency omitted one of Long Island’s biggest polluters – the Long Island Railroad. The LIRR operates 46 diesel locomotives that sit idling for as many as eight hours a day in the Jamaica, Speonk, Port Jefferson, Montauk and Babylon rail yards. The EPA, as well as many politicians and MTA Board members, is acting irresponsibly by ignoring the deadly fumes that are known to cause severe health problems that these diesels emit. According to a report produced by the Washington State Department of Ecology, each diesel engine annually burns over 80,000 gallons of fuel (mostly from unnecessary idling), emits more than 15 tons of nitrogen oxides, 900 tons of carbon dioxide and 1,000 pounds of fine particulate matter known to cause cancer. Multiply this times 46 diesels and the results – an unconscionable waste of money and tons of deadly pollutants that we breath 365 days a year. For more than 30 years the LIRR has been using outdated diesel locomotives that pollute, waste fuel and make unacceptable noise that effects the quality
of life, in addition to being inefficient and expensive to operate. In fact, in a Newsday article on October 23, 2008 the LIRR President Helena Williams admitted that diesel locomotives are operational nightmares. The EPA, the LIRR and the MTA have their heads in the sand. They continue to allow diesel locomotives to operate, which waste money, pollute the environment with toxic fumes and produce unacceptable levels of noise and they ask the commuters to pay for their stupidity. When will it stop? The EPA, the MTA Board, and the LIRR management must be held accountable and taken to task. They must be forced to resolve this situation immediately before Long Islanders and visitors to the region suffer major consequences beyond unreasonable fare increases. Bob Lorelli Speonk, NY Via e-mail It’s public transport, which is good. What do other railroads use for power? – DR SUBWAY SCHEDULE Dear Dan, My husband and I are avid readers and have kept up with all that is wonderful about our area except for the “Subway.” Many years ago, we were playing with the idea of such a subway, but then last week we noticed that there was going to be a filming of a motion picture scene at the subway. My husband and I had decided to go and to call and perhaps become extras until there was a number in the last four digits of the phone number missing. I tried to call Time Warner to no avail. We still considered going until the rain made us rethink our plans. There are no times available to catch this subway and the only mention of this subway is in Dan Papers. My husband and I would like to go and see this subway. Could you please let me know where we can find the trip schedules and where we can get access to the subway? Unless all of this is just some hyped-up joke lingering longer than need be for April Fools. Dr. H. Lynn Phelps Via e-mail The subway trains just run and run, hopefully every 12 minutes. It’s shut down from 2-5 a.m. for maintenance. – DR
Police Blotter Wild Man A man in East Hampton was caught driving his car all over the place on the side of the road. When police went to go confront the man, he had loud music playing, which is believed to have been the soundtrack to The Lone Ranger. Apparently the man was just having one Wild West time with his car on the side of the road. He was not drinking, but did receive a ticket. Shot No not with a bullet, with a camera. A man in Hampton Bays who is not a celebrity became infuriated at a person in the street after his picture was taken. A shouting match took place and the man attempted to take the camera and smash it on the ground, which he tried unsuccessfully. No charges were filed, and nobody in general cares about the man’s photograph. No Sticker A dog in East Hampton, lacking the proper beach sticker identification, thought about taking a walk on the beach, but decided it was too risky.
Broke In, Fell Asleep Talk about strange. A man in Southampton was reportedly caught breaking into a house in Southampton for a good night’s rest. The owners of the house suspect that the young man was a little intoxicated and didn’t realize he was falling asleep in a home that wasn’t his. Needless to say, they weren’t too happy about the incident and are not letting it go with a warning. Clocks, The Scientist A scientist in Sag Harbor thought that one of his very expensive clocks had been stolen out of his home. He called police, but later called them off after he figured out that his girlfriend thought the clock was ugly and placed it in the garage. The scientist was not too happy. Frustrated and Intoxicated A man in Montauk was pulled over and charged for driving while intoxicated. The man was unable to present nearly anything because he was so out of control. He later told police that he was very frus-
trated about his entire situation. Laying Low A man was caught in East Hampton stuffing his pants with meat from a grocery store. He was caught red-handed by the store manager after a steak fell out of the bottom of his pants. The store threw the meat out after the incident. Television A fistfight broke out in Southampton between a Red Sox fan and Yankees fan over an umpire’s call of a tag out at second base during a weekend game. There were a few injuries in the tussle, but no weapons became involved other than fists. It turned out that the Red Sox fan was wrong. Shelter Island A deer illegally crossed the street in an area that did not have a crosswalk sign on Shelter Island last week. A raccoon was also shot and killed. - David Lion Rattiner
