Welcome back, Bill and Hillary Clinton! According to The New York Times, the former President and Secretary of State will return to the Hamptons for their summer vacation, and rent a home in Amagansett. The Clintons are no strangers to the area—last year Hillary reportedly worked on her memoir here while Bill celebrated his 67th birthday with famous South Forkers Jimmy Buffett and Paul McCartney.

Bay Street Theater has announced the starstudded cast of Conviction, the first production of their 2014 Mainstage season. The cast includes two stars of the Academy Awards Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave—Garret Dillahunt, (also of television’s Raising Hope and Deadwood) and  Sarah Paulson (also of TV’s American Horror Story). Rounding out the lineup are Elizabeth Reaser of the Twilight films, Brian Hutchinson of Broadway’s Man and Boy and Looped, and BroadwayWorld winner for Best Actor Daniel Burns. Conviction, by Carey Crim, will be directed by Bay Street Artistic Director  Scott Schwartz. The play centers on a beloved husband, neighbor and teacher whose reputation is rocked by a student’s accusation that he behaved inappropriately. “He gets in trouble because of an accusation of sexual misconduct and it’s the fallout from that, especially among his family,” Crim says. “It’s he-said-she-said; it’s an issue that’s been tackled before, but I wanted to focus on what the accusation does to his family.” Conviction is a co-production by Bay Street Theater, the Rubicon Theatre in California, the Royal Manitoba Theatre of Canada and Dead Posh Productions in London, England. Conviction will run May 27 to June 15. Tickets go on sale May 15. Mainstage subscriptions are available now.  The Mainstage season will continue with Tom Stoppard‘s  Travesties starring Richard Kind from June 24 to July 30, and Adam Overett’s  My Life Is a Musical from July 29 to August 31. Look for interviews with Bay Street stars in upcoming issues of Dan’s Papers.

Never Promised You An Olive Garden As news broke of an agreement to use roaming goats to eliminate the invasive of autumn olive on open land in Bridgehampton, an obscure group calling itself East End Shrub Huggers (EESH) began inundating the local media with pro-shrub propaganda. News outlets reported that their phone and fax lines were jammed with irate autumn olive enthusiasts, who were condemning the goat-centered effort to curb what they referred to as “a peaceful, funloving” species of pricker bush. Later in the week, police discovered an EESH encampment that had sprung up in a field of autumn olive, where pro-shrub activists promised to make a last stand against “shrubicide.” As of press time, police were able to report little progress in negotiations with the protesters. The protesters, in the meantime, were vowing, “If the goats want to eat the autumn olive, they’ll have to eat us first.” When reached for comment, the goats expressed a willingness to try this approach. Not A Pretty Picture In a public relations promotion turned fiasco, Old Man McGumbus, Shelter Island’s 104-yearold WWII veteran and Trustee for Life, invited members of what he thought was his adoring public to tweet photographs of themselves taken with McGumbus. The resulting images, tweeted using the hashtag #myMcGumbus, proved an embarrassing revelation of McGumbus’s history of intrusive and disturbing behavior, and have put McGumbus back in legal jeopardy. One image shows McGumbus, trusty flame-thrower in hand, setting fire to a pile of books marked “Hippie Filth” while a shocked librarian stands helplessly watching. Perhaps most shocking is the photograph, submitted by the official North Korean Minister Of Tweets, showing McGumbus with his arm around North Korean President Kim Jong Un at what appears to be a cockfighting arena. Police are trying to identify the various anonymous sources of the photographs to begin questioning what they are calling “McGumbus’s victims.”

Populace Replaced With Strangers Several local residents called police over the weekend in a panic, convinced that the inhabitants of their East End village had been removed and replaced with persons unknown. From the transcript of one Sag Harbor call: “I walked up and down Main Street several times and did not recognize a single person. There were entire families with children and grandparents, and I didn’t know them from Adam!” After a preliminary investigation, police were able to report that, in fact, some of the local villages do appear to have undergone some sort of population shift, but it’s unclear where the former inhabitants are.

DOWN IN THE TUBE Betsey Johnson was seen doing a cartwheel on the platform as she got off the subway at East Hampton. She said it was a Cartwheel to Summer. RIDERSHIP MILESTONE The number of people using the subway last week was 10,001, which is a milestone. We haven’t had more than 10,000 riders since November 2. And it’s the first time since before the recession of 2008 that we have had our 10,001th passenger. We encountered him on the Quiogue platform where he got off and tried to give him a 50% off coupon on his next ride but he declined. He also declined to give his name. Then he ran away. ANNUAL POWER WASH This is a warning, especially to those people who

SUBWAY RESTAURANT HESITATES Hamptons Subway has been in conversation with the Subway Restaurant chain about continuing their exclusive contract to provide food and beverage to thirsty and hungry straphangers on our platforms. Their contract expires May 31 and they have not yet told us if they would renew. The problem, it turns out, is that East Hampton Town is considering passing laws to prevent any “chain” restaurants or stores

from legally operating in that town and, even below ground, this would be a violation in that town if passed. They asked if we could give them a three-month extension to their existing contract. We are thinking about it. So enjoy those 12-inchers. They may be gone from below ground soon, if we don’t come to terms. COYOTE A coyote was seen briefly on the Hampton Bays platform but ran into the tunnel when our guards went to investigate. If you see one again, call us immediately about what to do. We have to determine if this is a breed that is endangered in which case he will need to be fed, petted and coddled, or a breed that bites with a poisonous venom that leads to instant death, which has to be shot on the spot. You can tell which is which because the one kind has a red spot on his forehead and the other does not. NEW SIGNAGE GOING UP Many of our customers have told us that the signs above the entrances to all stations suffered peeling paint during this very terrible winter we have just gone through. Almost all have the word “Hampton” on them somewhere. And as a result, some people, confused about what town they are in, have gotten on at the wrong station. We hope to have new signs soon. Until then, we will have employees holding up signs at all the subway entrances saying what they are. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE Lots of cleaning, dusting, fixing, polishing and greasing going on at Hamptons Subway this spring, all for you!

The Summer Car Adventures with a British Sports Car Imported to the Hamptons By Dan Rattiner

W

hen spring arrives, as it just did, it immediately sends me out the kitchen door of my house to the best thing I have ever bought in my life. It sits in the garage. It’s a little red sports car that I paid a man named Charlie Brown $800 for some years ago. It sits there all winter, shivering and hibernating in the dark waiting for its time. That time, as it is every year, is now. The garage door goes up. And there it is, bouncing back and forth on its little tires, just waiting to get the show on the road. I remember the day I bought this car. It was on a sunny spring day just like this one, and it was in the gravel parking lot of a small nightspot in Hampton Bays called Charlie Brown’s (now called C.B.’s.) Its top was down. The owner of this cute little English sports car, the owner of this night spot, was leaning on its fender. Behind him, on the windshield, was a big sign reading FOR SALE 1959 TRIUMPH TR-3. The year was 1967. It was 8 years old. I bought it. And when Charlie Brown took out the registration, I was surprised to see he really was a guy named Charlie Brown. I had been in that place many times. And I thought it was just named after the Peanuts character Charlie

Brown. Lots of bars bore names like that in those days. But this was a different Charlie Brown, from Patchogue. Many friends, male friends I have today, owned a Triumph TR3 or one of the other big British sports cars back then. In the late 1950s, they were available cheap. World War II was over. American G.I.s, stationed in England, had brought them home on boats. Their contemporaries were Austin-Healeys, MGs, Morgans and Jaguars. “I owned one of those,” I am often told. “But I sold it.” There were circumstances, they say. Divorce. Kids. A need for cash. Growing up. A belief that these sports cars were dangerous. (They are.) There are other friends I have today, mostly male, mostly rich, who own old English sports cars. They have them restored. They keep them in air-conditioned garages that are attended 24/7. Some of these garages offer video services. You can have a live video feed of your car sitting in its garage sent off to your computer in your Manhattan office. It’s what others do about babies. They do this about cars. They show me their sports cars, all shined up. They say they paid $22,000 for it, and now it’s worth $30,000 two years later. And they want to know what dealer sold me mine and what did I

pay for it. “I bought it from a guy who owns a bar in Hampton Bays for $800,” I say. “That was 46 years ago.” They do not skip a beat. “Care to sell it?” they ask. Out in the garage, I walk once around the car. It is bright red, sits low to the ground and has a metal frame to which you can attach a canvas hood if it starts raining. In the front grille, there is a hole. In the trunk, if you clear out the mouse nests, there is a metal crank you can stick into the hole. It is possible to crank the car to start it, though I have never done it. I lift the hood of my Triumph TR3, check the radiator water level, the oil level, the brake fluid level, spray some starter fluid into the dual air cleaners, hook up a portable battery charger, go around to open the driver’s door to sit behind the wheel in the bucket seat, turn the key in the ignition to “on,” pull out the choke, pump the gas pedal 10 times to prime it and then carefully press the starter button. The car coughs and sputs. We stop and do it again. Now it catches, and roars, and I keep the gas pedal down halfway to keep it roaring, to keep the engine getting used to this wonderful spring day. Blue smoke comes out the exhaust pipe at the back briefly as it blows the winter’s idleness from its (Cont’d on next page) long sleep.

Car (Continued from previous page) After five minutes of running the engine, the needle in the heat gauge on the dashboard begins to rise, and I let out the clutch and put this antique into reverse. If when I slowly release the clutch there are no further complaints from the car, I know it is time to take her out onto the road. I back down the driveway to the street and off we go, a coltish thoroughbred from an era a half-century ago, accelerating into the traffic for a parade through town with its top down. Summer is here. The top speed of a Triumph TR3 is supposed to be about 110 miles an hour. The car is powered by a four-cylinder engine originally designed five years earlier for tractors in England, but put into this car because the company had no time, if it was going to catch the sports-car craze, to design a new engine. Late one night in 1985, I had an occasion to see how fast it would go. I’d had a big fight with my wife at the time, and she ran out to her car—a little black Chevette not much bigger than the TR3—and she drove off in anger. She often did this when angry. Usually it wouldn’t be until the next afternoon that she’d come back, all calmed down and acting as if nothing had happened. I never before had known anyone who did this. And this time, I wanted none of it. I ran out, jumped into the TR3 and took off after her. It was 3 a.m. I chased her down Main Street in East Hampton at around 70, along Hedges Lane in Sagaponack, through Main Street in Bridgehampton and off to Southampton and the Sunrise Highway. When she hit the six-lane highway there, I was right behind her. I’d stuck

to her the whole way. But then she opened up that Chevette. They don’t make Chevettes today, and you don’t see them around much. They were modest cars with not much power. I was sure I would be able to catch her. On the Sunrise, she took it up to 85 and I stuck to her, she took it to 90 and I was still there, she was at 95 and then 100 and 105 and way down the road ahead of me and pulling so far ahead I could no longer see her. She was gone. I looked at the speedometer of the TR3. It read 88 miles an hour. This British sports car was wound out, as fast as she could go. But I forgave her. That little TR3 was, at that point, a 17-year-old automobile. I patted her on the dashboard. “You did your best, girl,” I told her. My wife came back the next day, as she usually did. We’d learned something. Her car was faster than my car. As the years went by, I used it less and less. Now I just use it for select occasions, because of how hard it is to get parts for it. I still remember when the driver’s seat broke. There were no more Triumph car dealers when this happened in 1991. So I took it to a car repair place. This seat, built on a metal frame, had a hinge inside the padding. You could pull the back forward to let up to two people sit ridiculously on a 10” plank of wood that was the back seat. But now the hinge had given way. I’d had to prop up the seat back, something I did with a sailboat life jacket wedged between the back of the seat and the bench.

“It just needs a new hinge,” I told J.J., the owner. J.J. opened part of the leather at the seam and looked inside. “There’s a metal frame in there. It’s probably all rusted through.” “See what you can do,” I said, and left it with him. Two days later he called to tell me it was hopeless. It was all rusted out. I told him I had made some inquiries and there were no new TR3 seats being made anywhere. He’d have to repair this one. “I have a couple of Thunderbird seats I could put in there,” he said. “I’m going to find TR3 seats,” I said. “I’ll call you back.” It became a quest. I asked junkyards. I asked old car clubs. I even asked Moss Motors in California, who made parts for old sports cars. “We don’t have any and they don’t make any,” they told me. But I persisted. “Surely, in all these years, there have been garages you’ve dealt with that repair TR3s. Don’t you ever remember anybody mentioning they had the two bucket seats?” “Now that you mention it, I do,” the man said. “There’s a garage in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a mechanic works who had an AustinHealey that needed seats. We sent him TR3 seats by mistake. He said someday he’d need them, so he kept them. I bet he still has them.” I was given this man’s name. And so I called the garage. Or rather I called every car repair garage in Charlottesville until I located him. “He used to work here,” I was told. “But he doesn’t anymore. I think (Continued on page 24)

Mystery Probably the Most Exciting Fundraiser of the Year Here in the Hamptons

T

he old wooden one-room school in the hamlet of Springs sits on a triangular green in the center of that place, now used, after more than a hundred years as the school, as a tiny community center called Ashawagh Hall. Its service as a school ended in the 1930s when the community built a bigger school on the other side of Pussy’s Pond, and Ashawagh has since often been the scene of art exhibits for many of the famous artists who live in that community or in the surrounding area. Springs was at one time the center of the Abstract Expressionist movement. Jackson Pollock lived and worked here. Willem de Kooning. Max Ernst. Paul Klee. About 700 students attend the Springs School today. The school goes from pre-K to eighth grade. And often over the years, the students from the school would hold art shows at Ashawagh Hall. It was a nice thing to do. But few people would come. Often you could also see the art the kids drew pasted in the windows of the school as you drove by.

Last Wednesday at 4 p.m., however, a show of the work from the kids at the school went on display at Ashawagh Hall. By 2 p.m. the early birds showed up with lawn chairs and set up in a line from the front door out onto the green to wait. By 4 p.m., this line extended entirely across the green. And it stayed that way after the doors opened, because it took time for each gallery goer to stop at the door and buy works in advance for $20 each, up to a maximum of five each. The show was letting in approximately 85 people at a time. “Each paid $20 for a red dot with their number on it—at most, five dots. They’d take the time to choose paintings and put dots on their frames. Then they’d have to go back out and get to the back of the line if they wanted more,” Sue Ellen O’Connor, the Academic Enrichment Director at the school, later told me. The line remained for several hours out there. New arrivals got on at the end. Those seeking re-entry got on at the end. There was an incredible melee of people inside, finding docents to help put their numbered red dots

on paintings for quite some time. And this continued on for the next three days. It was only on Saturday at 8 p.m., with a huge crowd jamming Ashawagh, that the whole thing reached its climax. In the end, every piece in the show sold, raising money for the school’s Visiting Artist Program. With this program, established artists who live in the community are paid to teach a course at the school to create, with their students, a collaborative work of art to be put on permanent display there. How could this incredible four-day art show create such excitement and raise so much money for this program? How it was done should be known by other fundraisers, not just for programs at other schools, but for other fundraising causes. Three months earlier, the students at the school, in longhand, wrote letters to all the artists in this community asking them to submit a work for the show. If agreeable, each artist would create an original work to be put on sale along with the student art. A piece of paper 5”x7” was enclosed (Cont’d on next page)

in the letter. All works of art would be that size. Indeed, to get over 1,200 up on the walls in that one schoolhouse room at the same time, they’d have to be small. The names of who did the paintings, all the paintings, would not be visible to the gallery goer. All paintings would be sold for $20. Therefore, at this “Springs Mystery Art Sale,” a gallery goer, over these four days, could not know if for $20 he’d get a student painting or a work of art from an established painter. They chose exclusively by what they saw. And it would only be on Saturday at 8 p.m., at the end of the show, that it would be revealed who was who. Who wouldn’t want to buy a painting for that price by, for example, Eric Fischl or Sheila Isham or Hillary Knight or Mike Landi, just to name a few of the well known artists who

participated in this exhibit? My wife, Chris, and I went to Ashawagh Hall for this exhibit twice. We went on Friday afternoon around 4 p.m. The paintings were arranged in groups of 32–38 on every wall. There were 32 groupings, and above each was the name of a famous artist—Van Gogh, Renoir, Pollock, Klee, Cezanne, Picasso, Rothko—not because works of these artists were in the show, but because you could easily identify the paintings from the names. My wife and I chose painting Cezanne 26 and found a docent who showed us where the little red dot (number 400) we had bought for $20 for that purpose went. We arrived again on Saturday at 7:30 p.m., half an hour before what would be “the big

reveal” was announced, to enjoy the show and the wine and cheese and hear local resident (and Town Trustee) Job Potter and band entertain. Who did the painting we’d bought? Ashawagh was festooned outside with huge red banners, each bearing an enormous white question mark. The docents wore red T-shirts with the question mark. There was more food and drink, kids from the school, their friends, locals, summer people, parents and gallery goers. There was also an auctioneer, Lucas Hunt, a young man with a suit, black bow tie, tousled hair and a microphone, vigorously conducting a live auction for 20 artworks submitted that “didn’t fit”—that is to say, were entered but were not five by seven. He stood in the middle of the room and coaxed the crowd up to $300, $400, even up to $1,400, for these oversized pieces. What a time! And then, exactly at 8 p.m., the docents came out with the long lists of who painted all the paintings and put them up on the walls adjacent to where they were, and the place went wild. “Did you see mine?” a seven-year-old asked a friend. “Did you see mine?” asked painter Mike Landi. His painting had a red dot with the number 1 on it. The very first dot issued had been placed on his painting. A savvy gallery goer had thought perhaps he knew. And he did. Well, the event broke up around 9 p.m., and all who bought paintings would be back Sunday morning to pick them up. Besides the Mystery Art Show event, the Springs School has a program for fourth graders who make up and perform their own opera. They write the story, do the music, make the costumes and perform the opera at the John Drew Theater in town, beginning on the second Wednesday in January and then the next two days. Parents, teachers and staff also participate. A DVD of the opera is made and sold. Then the kids go by bus to see an opera in Manhattan. In another program, the students, all of them, participate in the making of films. These are also publicly presented. All praise to the Springs School, and particularly to parent Sara Faulkner, who came up with this idea, and to art teacher Colleen McGowan, who led the team that put it all together. All four of my kids went to the Springs School. There are a lot of great public schools in the Hamptons. And this surely is one.

Heading Out We Know Aliens Are Out There, Now We Know Where They Are From By Dan Rattiner

L

ast Wednesday, scientists hit the jackpot in their quest to find other planets where we could live. In the morning, there was the discovery of this new planet way out there in the Milky Way that we’d never noticed before. It’s so new, this planet, that it doesn’t have a name yet. But it is causing great excitement in the scientific world. It fits perfectly into the parameters described in the “Goldilocks” legend where the porridge (the planet) is not too hot and not too cold, where there is an atmosphere that could support life, where there might be water to drink and some sort of air to breathe and which might have on it aliens we can talk to, have a drink with and in general commiserate with about the meaning of life. What’s it like on your planet? Here’s what it’s like on our planet. The Earth has a diameter of 5,280 miles. This new planet has a diameter about 10% wider, according to Thomas Barclay of NASA’s Ames Research Center, a member of the team who found the planet and he has said he intends to name the planet later. He announced the discovery that morning at the annual “Search for Life Beyond the Solar System Conference,” and he gave a few details, but said a much broader description of it would soon appear in a paper that will be published shortly. The other thing that happened in the scientific world this month was the revelation that on a moon of Saturn in our very own solar system, there is a lake about the size of Lake Michigan filled with water, water vapor,

nitrogen, methane, CO2 and other chemicals that support life. How do we know this? The spaceship Cassini has been orbiting Enceladus, this moon, after photos showed some pretty strange eruptions going on there. And it has now reported on some of the data it has collected. How could we have overlooked a lake the size of Lake Michigan until now? The moon is entirely covered with ice 25’ thick. This lake is under this ice, invisible to anyone on Earth heretofore. What was noticed some years ago by Cassini, however, was that on the South Pole of this moon, there are great cracks in the ice and periodically, enormous geysers of some sort of liquid shoots up and out from between these cracks, goes as high as 125 miles, then either dissipates in the atmosphere there or turns to snow to sprinkle back down onto the surface of the ice. Having found this, Cassini was instructed to photograph it and collect data on it to try to figure out where it was coming from. Know how ice cubes float in water? What astronomers have found is that the ice on the moon is floating at the South Pole on this lake of water, and the lake of water under there is on top of the core of the moon, which is largely made of the metal silicate. It is really interesting how they figured this out. The South Pole of this moon has a kind of dent in it, as if it were hit by a car or something. No one knows the cause of this, but where the dent is there is less gravity. The less gravity has been found to be more than could be caused by the dent. And what they think now is that

another moon of Saturn named Dione, is close to this moon and is exerting a pull that tends to yank at the ice down there by the pole and make it pull away from the core. This causes heat. The heat melts where the ice is pulled away. And that melt is what they believe to be Lake Michigan. It’s 300 degrees below zero on the surface of Enceladus. But down there under the ice, they now think it might be nice and warm and possibly supporting aliens. Personally, I am trying to decide which would be a better place to go to when the Earth becomes uninhabitable because of global warming. So let’s compare the two. Enceladus is really a very small moon. It is just 310 miles in diameter. There are at least 54 other moons orbiting Saturn, which is an immense planet about 100 times larger than the Earth. Three hundred and ten miles diameter means it’s just 1,000 miles in circumference, so you could fly in a 777 for just three hours and land at an airport right where you started from. Many people like small places. I’m one of them. I like places that you can drive a few hours—or in this case just 25 hours—and you are all the way around. So I consider it a plus. The fact that it is under an enormous sheet of ice 25 miles thick, however, is a minus. It’s all happening in the space in there between the ice and the lake, made by that neighboring moon’s exertions in trying to peel off a bit of the ice. Sounds pretty touchy if you see what I mean, things creaking and groaning as they pull this way and that. Also, and (Cont’d on next page)

this is the biggest minus, you don’t see the sun. You’re under there with the, uh, whatever they are, and they probably don’t know all about what else is out there above the ice sheet. They not only don’t know about the sun, they don’t know about the other moons or this gigantic planet Saturn looming nearby or even about the giant geyser of water shooting out from the bottom there. It would be an exhilarating thing to be able to tell them about it. Meanwhile, the other planet just discovered far away is almost exactly the size of the earth and is in a zone where there is water. It is one of at least six planets that orbit around an M1 Red Dwarf sun. We don’t yet know which M1 Red Dwarf it is, but we do know about them as a species. Red

Dwarfs are very popular in the universe. Red Dwarfs make up about 70% of the stars in the galaxy. They are dimmer than our sun, and they also are smaller. To circle a Red Dwarf in this cozy manner, a planet would have to be even closer to it than our planet Mercury, our first planet, is to our sun. Still, the Red Dwarf would be a bit of a dim bulb. Though it would be warm enough and pleasant enough to walk around there on that planet and enjoy the craters and great plains and rivers (from the water) and oceans there. I like the idea that things might be pretty okay on this planet. The real downer, however, unless you really think about it, is that it is so far away. Saturn is about ten years away by rocket ship. But to get to this planet would take

trillions of years. And I for one don’t have that kind of time. I seriously doubt if I’ll even be alive in a trillion years. But here’s something else to think about. We seem to be on the way to developing the “beam” where we step into a glass tube and a button is pushed, our molecules are disassembled and then almost immediately re-assembled at the destination which is very carefully plotted out with coordinates ahead of time. The Trekkies are working on this. So I’ll say this: Overall, I think that being beamed somewhere with the snap of your fingers is lots less annoying and boring than a 10-year voyage to Saturn. So before they create the beam, I guess I’d go with Saturn if I had to make a decision. But after the invention, it would be that planet what’s-its-name, hands down. That’s what I think, anyway.

he works as a night orderly in a hospital in Dayton, Ohio.” Soon I tracked him down, and yes, he still had the seats. And yes, he would sell them. “How much you want for them?” I asked. He thought about it. “I guess you’d pay whatever I asked, since you can’t get any anywhere else. I wouldn’t take less than $50 for the both of them. Final offer.” “Do you live near the airport?” I asked him. “The Dayton Airport?” “Yes.” “About 20 minutes away.” “Just so happens, I have business in Dayton on Friday. If you could bring them down to the airport—I’ll call you back with the flight information—I’ll buy them from you for the $50. Just wrap them in plastic. I’ll take them home as luggage.” “Okay.” And so that is what we did. I sit in them today. Late one night in 2005, I pulled into the parking lot of the 7-Eleven in Sag Harbor and found just one parking space available. I pulled in and discovered, to my astonishment, that I was right next to another bright red 1959 TR3, exactly like mine. The only way to tell them apart was that the other one had a luggage rack on the trunk. I waited. Soon a man of about 35 strolled out with a cup of coffee and came to a sudden stop when he saw my car next to his. We talked for about 15 minutes about our cars, he gave me his contact information—he lived in Noyac—I gave him mine, and we never saw each other again. Of all the sports cars made by the British in the post-war era, the TR3, as it has turned out, was the most popular. Tens of thousands of them were sold. The Jags and Austin-Healeys and Morgans and MGs sold far less and so today are very rare. If you can find one, you’ll pay $20,000 or so for it. The Triumph like mine, however, is not so valuable. You can pick one up for probably half that. But not mine. Early on Sunday mornings this summer, you might find me at Marty’s Deli in Springs on a bagels and lox run. Lots of the other sports car owners show up then. But I’m probably the only one who’s owned my car since Lyndon Johnson was heating up the Vietnam War.

Caring About Kids at Southampton Day Care By joan baum

T

play is “one of the most profound means available to children for refining and integrating their knowledge, language development, social skills, self-esteem and individuality.” Some parents now opt for half-day since the Southampton schools have instituted Pre-K. If children need services beyond those provided by the center, such as special speech or physical therapy, SDC works with the Department of Social Services of Suffolk County to connect them. Overall, Davis’s vision is being realized. Miss Charlene, a toddler head teacher says, “We provide the setting for learning, and it’s amazing to see the growth happen by the time children enter the Pre-K room.” This “fountain of youth” has become a font of knowledge!

wenty-seven years ago, Southampton resident Kathleen Tillett Davis started a special daycare program in her home for the preschool children of working parents. David called it “Fountain of Youth,” but unlike Ponce de Leon’s apocryphal quest for healing waters that would turn older ages young, Davis obviously saw her mission the other way around—to ensure that young children who otherwise might not have a chance at early education as play would drink up activities and learning experiences that could provide them with essential cognitive and social skills to compete successfully in later life. Since January 2001, the center has been located at David White’s Lane in Southampton. Though Davis died last year, her vision to establish and sustain “safe, nurturing, low-cost daycare services” goes on, under the leadership of director Rachel Copt, a former public school teacher with a Masters in Art Education, K-12 and an enthusiasm that’s apparent as soon as she says “Hello!”

working mothers. The full-day children get breakfast and snacks (parents provide lunch), and the preschoolers get bussed in by way of a transportation arrangement with the Southampton School District. Whether parents opt for full- or half-day, they can expect an age-appropriate curriculum at SDC that focuses on language development, social skills, fine motor skills (learning to use writing and cutting instruments), large motor skills (athletics in the new playground), and music and art, with attention to “child-initiated projects” and “child-choice activities.” The idea is to develop the whole child, a philosophy articulated by the National Association of Education of Young Children that holds that

Play is important work at Southampton Day Care.

Copt, who has just completed her second year as director, says that “special” indeed applies because the enterprise, now called the Southampton Day Care Center Fountain of Youth (SDC), is the only not-for-profit provider of full-time daycare in the local area—five days a week, all year long, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. In addition to Copt, the staff includes two certified teachers, three teacher’s aides and a part-time bookkeeper. A diverse 10-member board, all local year-round residents, oversees policies. Adjustable parent fees make up 44% of revenue, government contracts 39%, with village, town and county grants accounting for 12% and local fundraising activities 5%. And then there are volunteers who continue to assist by way of donating goods and services: “This is truly a community effort,” says Copt. Still, she’s surprised that even after so many years, she’s sometimes asked if SDC is a dropoff, baby-sitting kind of place. No way! SDC is maxed out at 30 children who are divided into a toddler room, approximately 10 children (ages 2-3), and Pre-K (ages 4-5), and welcomes children “of all races, creeds, colors and national origins.” Approximately 25% of the children are Latino, 20% African American and the rest White. Keeping it small keeps the sense of community, Copt says— “all the families know each other.” Through flyers, and now the internet, SDC lets the community know about its good work, though the main source of information seems to be word-of-mouth, especially among single-parent

On the big screen: East Hampton’s Steven Spielberg is working on a script for The Goonies 2, a sequel to the 1985 classic about a group of kids who try to find hidden pirate treasure. The Other Woman, starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, which filmed scenes in the Hamptons last year, had a strong opening at the box office last weekend with $24.7 million in ticket sales. Bridgehampton’s Bob Balaban stars in Approach the Bench, a new web series from Above Average, the YouTube channel run by Amagansett’s Lorne Michaels. The first episode is now available for viewing. Several East End regulars attended Vanity Fair magazine’s Tribeca Film Festival party at the New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan last week, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Ron Perelman, Tory Burch and Christy Turlington. Tom and Cynthia Rosicki of Sparkling Pointe in Southold accepted a Community Leadership Award from Greenport’s Eastern Long Island Hospital (ELIH) Foundation Chair Scott V. Bennett last week. The Rosickis are supporting ELIH’s operating room project with a lead gift of $250,000. Cheers to that! North Fork residents Brady and Claudia Rymer performed their children’s hit, “Jump Up (It’s a Good Day),” during the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll. The song was co-produced by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Partnership for a Healthier America. Brady, a Grammy nominee, has performed with Dave Matthews, Bob Dylan and more. Who’s featured at Madame Tussaud’s wax museum in New York? Many celebs with East End connections including Bill Clinton, Anderson Cooper, Albert Einstein, Rudolph Giuliani and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, to name just a few.

This Week’s Cover Artist: Carol Saxe By MARION WOLBERG-WEISS

This week’s cover by Carol Saxe, “Courtyard,” goes beyond its obvious pleasant imagery. Yes, it features a spring setting, but there’s no usual abundance of flowers. Yes, it’s an open and airy scene, but we want to know more about what lies in the background once we go through the gates. What makes this image special and yet similar to some of Saxe’s other paintings? First, there’s the idea of nature, combined with architectural aspects, like the gates. Then there’s the feeling of movement, as the viewer walks through the gates to enter the garden. Also present are the sights and sounds of spring, the sensual experience of the moment. Yet another experience, somewhat oppositional, is evoked as well: we are in an intimate space and place, but we are also projected beyond the picture plane at the same time. We are there and not there simultaneously. I’ve noticed many motifs and similarities in your work, vertical composition (like columns, curtains), for one thing. But verticality can also determine the shape of the canvas. Is this kind of verticality a conscious choice on your part? The subject matter often dictates this. However, a lot of galleries say horizontal works are more popular than vertical ones. But I find vertical paintings work very well. I paint what I feel. I don’t let the “rules” effect what I paint.

What was your art training like, your early art experiences? As a teenager, I liked to go to MOMA and see all the “hot” paintings. Living in Palm Beach, I was attracted to the courtyards and turned toward Realism. I got a B.F.A. at the University of Michigan. How was that experience majoring in art? Two courses should be required in art school: Business Management and How to Handle Rejection. Who were some of your influences through the years? dans 5 2 14 logo10:Layout 1 4/29/2014 AM Page 1 The Impressionists, like 10:08 Monet. They

captured the lifestyle at the time, café life as an example. That’s one of my themes in the last 20 years. To capture the lifestyle of my subjects, the social/cultural environment. What else is important to you, besides your themes? In other words, what does art mean to you? Art is communication. I want to evoke a response. I am a happier person when I’m painting. Art is addictive. Carol Saxe will be showing her work starting June 7 at Southampton’s Chrysalis Gallery, 2 Main Street. 631-287-1883. chrysalisgallery.com

Another striking motif is windows. As you know, windows can convey many metaphors. What do your windows mean to you? Different people react to them in different ways. I first started painting windows when I lived in Palm Beach, Florida. But my windows were closed. They were an architectural element; I was looking at forms and shapes. Then someone suggested I open the windows. When I did that, I sold twice as many paintings. Viewers need a way into paintings. Windows allow them to do this.

Meb, 2014 Boston Winner, Coming to SI 10K By kelly laffey

33654

The 35th Annual Shelter Island Run 10K announced last week that 2014 Boston Marathon winner and Olympic silver medalist Mebrahtom “Meb” Keflezighi will be competing in this year’s race, scheduled for June 21. With last Monday’s heartfelt win at the Boston Marathon, Meb became the first American to win that race in 29 years. The Shelter Island Run 10K has longstanding

ties with Boston, the world’s oldest continuously run marathon, as many of Boston’s elite runners have participated over the years. The list includes four-time Boston champion Bill Rodgers (1975, 1978, 1979, 1980) and two-time Boston winner Joan Benoit Samuelson (1979, 1983). Last year’s race was peppered with “Boston Strong” support. Meb’s victory was the exclamation point on a Marathon Monday that showcased Boston’s spirit and strength in the wake of the bombing tragedy that marred the 2013 finish, making it one of the most memorable in Boston’s 118-year history. Meb’s win was largely unexpected, as many analysts had counted the 38-year-old elite marathoner—and an American win in general—

out of the picture for the 2014 race. But that’s the thing about racing—when competing, heart and drive play a bigger role than flat-out stats. After the race, Meb revealed that the words “Boston Strong” and “Meb Strong” were running through his head as he ran the final stretch, eventually winning with an 11-second margin. His résumé includes a silver medal in the 2004 Olympic marathon and a win at the New York City Marathon in 2009, but Meb is perhaps best known for his optimistic attitude during and after races, even more than his running prowess. Regardless of how he was destined to finish, Meb would have garnered some of the loudest cheers during the race, as both his racing accolades and his humility have made him one of the most—if not the most—beloved distance runners in recent history. Everyone was hoping for an American win in Boston, a feat that has not been accomplished by a man since 1983 or a woman since 1985. And Meb did it with the names of last year’s bombing victims—Martin, Krystle, Lingzi and Sean—written on the corners of his race bib. Meb’s story is all-American. He immigrated to the United States with his family as refugees from Eritrea, settling in San Diego. He attended UCLA, where he was lauded as an All-American a total of 12 times and won four NCAA Championships. Meb went on to run professionally, with his most celebrated accolades coming at the 2004 Olympic marathon; and in 2009, when he became the first American in 27 years to win the New York City Marathon. Like any successful, driven runner, Meb has faced considerable speed bumps in his career that he has “run to overcome.” (Run to Overcome is the title of his autobiography.) Meb suffered a pelvic stress fracture during the 2008 Olympic Marathon Trials and didn’t make the team. In 2011, Nike did not renew Meb’s contract, and he ran as an unsponsored athlete before being signed by Sketchers later that year. Especially after the Nike incident, many questioned Meb’s commitment to the sport; at 36 years old, he was at the tail end of what many consider the prime running years. But Meb pressed on, and he intended to run Boston in 2013. An injury forced him to drop out prior to the race, and he wached near the finish line, leaving just prior to the explosions. The experience left an indelible impression on Meb, as he vowed to run the 2014 race. He came back stronger than ever—despite another perceived setback, a 2:23:07 finish in the New York Marathon last November—notching a personal best time of 2:08:37. Meb’s strength is inspirational. His win, a victory for the U.S. And his presence at the Shelter Island Run 10K an honor for East Enders. The run is scheduled to begin at the Shelter Island High School at 5:30 p.m. on June 21. Racers will continue past St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, past Ram Island Road, take in the breathtaking views of Gardiners Bay and Coecles Harbor, then run past Dering Harbor. The final stretch, “Joey’s Mile,” is dedicated to Lt. Joseph Theinert, who was killed in action in Afghanistan. The community lines the final mile with small American flags, inspiring runners to push for a strong finish at the high school field. Will you be there? Visit shelterislandrun.com for more info.

Besides, you can only pick from what’s here.” “Daddy, I want that white kitten over there. I want both those white kittens. One can be for me, and one can be for Gigi.” “I don’t know, Tammy. I told Mom we’d just bring home one dog.” “Daddy, I don’t wanna kitty. I want the hankster in the pink cage.” “No no, Gigi. We’re getting a puppy dog. No kitty cats, no hamsters.” “Daddy, the two white cats are cream-point Siamese. The lady says they just went up for adoption and they won’t last an hour. Gigi will forget all about the hamster if we get kittens.” “No Daddy, I don’t wanna kitty! I want Shiny! That’s the hankster in the pink cage!” Later on the way back to Shelter Island... “Got everything, Dad?” “Yup. Eight hundred dollars worth of pet supplies for two dogs, two cats, and a ‘hankster.’” “No, Dad, I meant the other stuff, the stuff you needed to save your life?” “Oh yeah. Lobster dinner with extra lobster, Godiva chocolates, lemon cake, plus lemon cake-flavored vodka, and three dozen rumraisin cookies. With this ammo boys, there’s still only a slight chance your mother won’t kill one or all of us when we get home. Let me go in first with the goodies, I’ll call you in when I’m ready, and you can bring in the pets.” Twenty-five minutes later, an enraged wife sits facing her favorite goodies spread out on the table. In a low, soft voice, she says “Just give me the facts.” “Brian got a Sheltie, Timothy got a border collie mix.” “That’s two dogs, Scott. I said one dog.” “And Tammy got two kittens.” “Are they golden statues that we can sell?” “No. They’re cream-point Siamese kittens.” “Okay. Cream-point Siamese helps, but you’re still in a lot of trouble.” At this moment, four children with five pets enter the family home, all very excited and showing off their pets. Gigi fumbles to the front of the pack with a little pink cage containing Shiny the Hankster. Mother looks at Father, and says, “And a hamster? You got a hamster, too?” “You want me to pour you a glass of vodka now?” “No. Just open the bottle and hand it to me and no one will get hurt.”

Putting a Wrench in the Car Buying Process The automobile has been around for more than 100 years. But in many ways, the process of buying a car hasn’t changed much at all. I recently purchased a new vehicle, my first in four years. While the dealer experience was much improved, the transaction still had many confusing and secretive aspects. Why did their friendly sales guy hand me over to their dour Russian finance lady when it was time to sign papers? All she did was shake her head dismissively every time I turned down those unnecessary “buyer protection plans.” Why did my lease terms change based on the zip code where I will most likely drive the vehicle? Couldn’t I game the system and tell them I’ll only drive it on Gin Lane? I got home from the dealer and flipped on the television. Almost instantly, I began noticing commercials for online car-purchasing sites. The timing was perfect; it felt like they were tracking my every move. It turns out there are lots of sites that purport to revolutionize your auto-buying experience. Here’s an overview.

GADGETS

& GEAR

car you have in mind, and the site retrieves a cache of information: accident reports, repair invoices and more. If the prior owner never took the car to a legit dealer for repairs, you’ll end up with a barren Carfax—but that should be a red flag in and of itself. Kelly BlueBook (kbb. Not as easy as it looks? com) also provides objective overall pricing ranges (and resell values) for your desired year, make and model. It’s the bible of the auto aftermarket and the generally accepted standard for used cars. Another plus:

The site has a very clean, search tool. Remnants + Rollovers One site I’d like to see is a place where we can shop across brands for excess inventory. The travel industry has led the way here. Sites like hotels.com and priceline.com give travelers last-second deals on unused rooms and seats. So why isn’t there a site for cars? It’s a great question, but one that I cannot answer. Maybe someday… Thinkstock.com

By MATTHEW APFEL

Online Stores It’s pretty easy to buy a car online. Sites like cars.com, autotrader.com, carsdirect.com and others all let you do pretty much the same thing: search for specific vehicles, compare price quotes from dealers and individuals, access information about cars, and more. You can also sell your car on some of these exchanges. But how do you tell them apart? Honestly, it’s hard to say. Some sites seem to focus more attention on used vehicles. Others do a better job with links to insurance and financing options. Here’s the good news: All of them offer a fair amount of information and simple UI. To get started, you enter the make, then click to add model information, pricing and other filters. The sites also feature editorial reviews presumably written by automotive experts. This adds an air of objectivity to the process. Another good option is eBay motors, especially for classic cars and specific models. The auction process is well managed and contains plenty of information about the car. It helps to find someone local who can actually kick the tires on it before you jump in. Finally, if you’ve decided on the brand or model of the car you want, don’t forget to check out the company website. You can build your own vehicle right there, check inventory and run through finance options that are virtually identical to what’s offered at the dealer. It’s unclear whether you’ll be able to negotiate any “extra savings” online, but I’m highly dubious of those in-store specials to begin with. Informational Sites Many people are OK with buying from a dealer. We like the tactile experience of sitting in the vehicle and getting a real feel for the engine. But come armed with as much unbiased, objective information as possible. There are lots of options here. Carfax is a popular site. You simply enter the VIN number for the

Garden Club of East Hampton Turns 100 By JUDY S. KLINGHOFFER

I

n the year 1914, while America was dancing the foxtrot and running to the movies to see Chaplin’s Little Tramp, Mrs. Lorenzo E. Woodhouse founded the Garden Club of East Hampton (GCEH). A hundred years later, the current Garden Club president, Gigi Mahon, acknowledges her predecessor with a series of events celebrating the club’s 100 year anniversary, themed “Mrs. Woodhouse Presents.” The centerpiece of the festivities will be a flower show at Mulford Farm, which will be open to the public free of charge on July 24, from 3–4:30 p.m. Even non-gardeners will be charmed by the displays of floral design, exhibits on conservation and other educational information, photography and botanical arts. Additionally, there will be an exhibit, “Trees Through Time,” focusing on 100 years of Hamptons trees, along with thoughts for sustainable planting applicable for a large space or a backyard garden. As this is a Garden Club of America event, other Garden Clubs from neighboring regions will be on hand to show off their blooms and exhibits. “She was formidable,” Mahon says, admiringly, of the indomitable Mrs. Woodhouse. “She was a huge part of the character of East Hampton.” Woodhouse was also the founder of Guild Hall and, along with her stockbroker husband, a generous benefactor to East Hampton. Woodhouse’s own Hamptons home on Huntting Lane no longer exists, but the playhouse she built across the road for her theatrically minded daughter is still standing and has found a new life as

a home for the Playhouse Project, a series of master classes in classical music. As the Garden Club of East Hampton prepares for their July 24 centennial celebration flower show, titled “It’s About Time,” Mahon commented on the inaccurate image of a Garden Club as a group of ladies in fanciful hats having meetings. “So much of the beauty you see is the work of the Garden Club,” Mahon said, referring to the small gardens and benches that year-rounders and visitors enjoy around East Hampton. “We are very involved in environmental issues.” Right now, GCEH interns, East Hampton High School seniors Jacqueline Smuszinski and Andrew Dixon, are involved in an extensive study of Big Reed Pond. The data will be presented to the Third House Nature Center in Montauk. Mahon reflected on how gardens have changed from Mrs. Woodhouse’s day. “Flowers were more formal, more stylized.” A person of Mrs. Woodhouse’s social stature could have as many as 16 gardeners on staff, maintaining not only outdoor gardens, but all the interior blooms and potted palms that were popular during that era. A portrait of Mrs. Woodhouse, painted by Albert Herter, show the lady herself, seated with regal bearing, wearing a champagne-colored dress and pale coral scarf alongside a bouquet of matching zinnias. Mahon talked about her choice of “Mrs. Woodhouse Presents” as the theme of the centennial celebration. “I’m fascinated by Mrs. Woodhouse,” she admits. Apparently, Mrs. Woodhouse was a dynamo in family matters as well as community philanthropic efforts.

The centerpiece of the festivities will be a flower show at Mulford Farm, which will open to the public free of charge on July 24. In 1922, The New York Times reported on a lawsuit for alienation of affection directed against Mr. and Mrs. Lorenzo E. Woodhouse by their daughter-in-law, Dorrit Stevens Van Deusen Woodhouse. The plaintiff claimed that her mother-in-law, disapproving of little Dorrit, threw C. Douglas Woodhouse into the amorous path of another lady, one who was presumptively, mother-in-law approved. Dorrit won her suit, and was awarded by a jury the very tidy sum of over $400,000—a previously unheard of award in that day. Even though The Times estimated the Woodhouse’ wealth to be somewhere between $11 and $15 million, losing out so publically to their disgruntled daughter-in-law had to sting. Regardless of Mrs. Lorenzo E. Woodhouse’s dubious style of mother-in-lawing, there is no doubt that her contributions to East Hampton have been numerous and beneficial to the entire community. Looking back on all that the Garden Club of East Hampton has accomplished, beginning with Mrs. Woodhouse’ tenure, current president Mahon says, “Mrs. W, as I call her, I just adore her.” As long as she’s not your mother-in-law.

Revco Lighting and Electrical Supply Expands By NICHOLAS CHOWSKE

F

or the past 36 years, the folks at Revco Lighting and Electrical Supply have been keeping the East End lighted in style—and they’ll be the first to tell you, they’re just getting started. “We’ve grown our business from roughly 50 employees two years ago to 65 employees today,” says Vice President Michael Velys. “I think we’ve pretty much saturated the East End.” Revco has four stores and showrooms across the South and North Forks, their largest being in Southampton. “The building here is 33,000 square feet, and we’re currently employing about 45 in Southampton,” he says. “We are displaying far more fixtures in our showroom than we ever did, and we hope to make it more inviting for the public to come in.”

The majority of Revco’s business is dealing with electrical contractors, and getting more traffic into the showrooms has been the motivation behind some recent changes. “We have lighting showrooms in three of the four stores, and we sell a lot of lighting, but very honestly, up until this point, we have not done the retail lighting business out of our showrooms that I feel that we need,” Velys says. “Truthfully, I think that many people that drive by our store in Southampton every day don’t know that they’re welcome to come in.” In addition to renovating the Southampton showroom, the company has also gone through a rebranding process. “We have recently changed the name of our business from Revco Electrical Supply to Revco Lighting and Electrical Supply to let people know that we don’t just sell electrical supplies, we also sell lighting.”

“We are displaying far more fixtures in our showroom than we ever did, and we hope to make it more inviting for the public to come in.” Velys’s parents Ross and Teddy opened Revco’s first store in Riverhead in 1978, and Velys joined them a year later. About 15 years ago, Revco opened a third showroom in East Hampton, which did well enough that they were able to triple its size from 2,000 to 6,000 square feet. This secured their hold on the South Fork, which is home to some of the most impressive houses and estates in the country. “I’ve been in this business my whole life and it’s amazing for me still to see the enormity of the homes and the budgets that people have in the Hamptons for lighting,” Velys says. Despite their ideal location, no one was immune to the economic downturn. “Between 2008 and 2009 we saw a decrease in sales of approximately 30%—the biggest hit that we’ve ever seen since we’ve been in business,” Velys says. “You take 30% out of your sales with similar expenses, and it’s a tough battle, but we bounced back, and fortunately, business has continued to grow for us.” Not only did Revco bounce back, they were able to continue growing.

“I had the conversation with my son, and a couple of other young people here, and they had me convinced that we should expand,” Velys says. He brought his proposal to Ross, Teddy and their accountant, all of whom declined. “It didn’t make sense to open another branch when the economy was doing as poor as it was,” he says. Velys and his son realized that the only alternative was to begin laying people off. “I didn’t want to lay off people, so we decided to take a chance and prove everybody wrong,” he says, and Revco opened their fourth branch in Southold in October of 2009. “We found that the North Fork has a lot more potential than we ever anticipated.” Velys is happy to share the secret of Revco’s success. “We will service a customer to no end, and we’ve made it very clear to our employees that the customer is very important,” he says. “We sell similar products to our competition, and we have similar costs, we have similar sale prices, but personally, I think that a smile on your face and a ‘Good morning, may I help you?’ is a good start to any sale.” Revco will be holding a four-day sale May 1–4 to kick off the summer. “We want to welcome anyone and everyone to stop in and see our newly-renovated showroom here in Southampton,” Velys says. “I hope that we’ll have a large crowd of people coming to take a look and see the new lighting that we have here.”

Pollock-Krasner House to Undergo Renovations By DOUGLAS NEWMAN

T

he Pollock-Krasner House, Jackson Pollock and wife Lee Krasner’s former studio and home in Springs, in slated to receive major upgrades soon. The plans call for the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, where the renowned Abstract Expressionist painter did his most famous work, to get a new office and restroom in what was originally the house’s garage. The renovations will make the center more accessible to people with disabilities and allow more of the house to be restored and opened to the public. Converting the former garage into an accessible office and restroom would solve problems of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance without compromising the home’s historic integrity. Additionally, the room currently used as an office, which was a guest bedroom during Pollock and Krasner’s time, would be restored to its former appearance and opened to the public as part of the museum. “The benefit is ADA compliance for both the restroom and the administrative office, for the comfort and convenience of all our visitors and staff,” says Helen Harrison, the center’s director. “Also, moving the office out of what was Pollock and Krasner’s guest room will allow us to restore that room with its original furniture.”

appearance close to the original. The main objective of the project is to improve the center’s accessibility to people with disabilities. The ground floor of the house is wheelchair accessible, but the office is currently located in an upstairs room that is not. The house’s ground-floor restroom is also not handicap accessible, requiring some visitors to use an accessible portable toilet. The plan came before the Town of East Hampton’s planning board on April 2. According to the town’s assistant planning director JoAnne Pahwul, the town found the plans complete, with the exception of some details regarding lighting. Once these are submitted, the board will review the plan for potential adverse environmental impacts and, if none are found, schedule a public hearing. If no objections arise there, it will approve the plan. Although the garage is not part of the site’s landmark designation, Pahwul says that

The Pollock-Krasner House in Springs

Pollock and Krasner (who was also an accomplished modern artist) moved to the house from New York City following their marriage in 1945. They lived and worked there until Pollock’s death in 1956; Krasner continued to do so until her death in 1984. Under the terms of Krasner’s will, the home has been a museum and center for the study of modern art, owned by the Stony Brook Foundation, since 1987. The Stony Brook Foundation is a private nonprofit affiliate of Stony Brook University that raises and manages charitable donations to the state university. The house, built in 1879, and the former barn that Pollock used as his studio—and Krasner as hers after his death—are federally designated National Historic Landmarks. It was here that Pollock pioneered his drip painting technique of pouring liquid paint onto a canvas, and the studio’s floor still has paint splatters from his most famous masterpieces. But the site’s remaining buildings, including the garage that would be renovated, are not part of the landmark designation. A statement provided by the center says that it nevertheless recognizes “the desirability of retaining their original character, as reflected in the design for the proposed garage renovation.” The plans call for the garage to be removed from its foundation, for a new, larger foundation to be built and for the building to be expanded and raised to accommodate the office and restroom. The renovated building would retain an exterior

the board still considered the project’s potential impact on its historic integrity, finding it “respectful of the historic nature of the site.” Completing these renovations would fulfill a longterm goal for the center. The plans were originally submitted to the town in 2007. Though they received town approval, Harrison noted that expected grant funding did not come through, preventing them from being carried out. Harrison does not anticipate similar problems again. The foundation received a $49,500 grant for the project from New York State Council on the Arts in 2013, which she says it is “leveraging,” along with a $25,000 private donation and endowment funds earmarked for the project to raise the rest of the $250,000 it needs. She expects, following town approval, to break ground on the project in the fall, and estimates that it will take about three months to complete.

Tour Looks Inside Architectural Treasures

T

he Southampton Historical Museum and Research Center has selected five houses for its 5th Annual Southampton House Tour, an “Insider’s View,” on Saturday, May 31. History buffs will delight in this year’s offerings—the Shinnecock Hills Classic, Ocean Villa, 1708 House, St. Andrew’s Dune Church and the museum’s own Thomas Halsey Homestead—each illustrating Southampton’s architectural history, from the colonial era to today. This unique tour includes a look into a 19th century post and beam house, complete with a renovated windmill, built by a pastor for his two daughters who attended a Southampton art academy, and, perched atop a bluff on one of Southampton’s most picturesque lanes, an immense architectural treasure featuring panoramic ocean views and an in-home theater and spa. Among other highlights is a village classic boasting collections of Americana. The historic Halsey House and highly visible Dune Church will also be open. Refreshments will be served during the tour at the 1708 House.

The tour features the Shinnecock Hills classic, Ocean Villa, 1708 House, St. Andrew’s Dune Church and the Thomas Halsey Homestead. “Insider’s View” takes place from 1–4:30 p.m. on Saturday May 31, and is followed by a champagne reception at the Rogers Mansion (17 Meeting House Lane) in Southampton Village from 4:30–6 p.m.

Shinnecock Hills Classic The house is perfectly sited atop one of the gentle rises that give Shinnecock Hills its name. Shingled and gracefully sprawling with porches and diamondpaned windows to catch the cross breezes of summer, it is perhaps the quintessential turn-of-the-century summer cottage. To complete the picture, a windmill stands its ground, artfully arranged as a guest house. Inside the house, the spirit remains very close to what architect Katherine Cotheal Budd must have had in mind when she designed it in 1896 for her friends and fellow students of William Merritt Chase’s Shinnecock Summer School of Art, the Howland sisters. In 1995, when the Edelman family bought the house from famed photographer Francesco Scavullo, they so admired the inviting interior with its muted colors and mixture of antiques and comfortable sofas and chairs, that they struck a deal with Scavullo who left everything as part of the package. In the years since then, the Edelmans have done major work where it was required and put their own stamp on the décor— all of which has only added to the charm of this house full of history.

The Thomas Halsey Homestead Southampton Village’s oldest house was built c. 1660 on land that belonged to founding Southampton settler Thomas Halsey. It is a property of the Southampton Historical Museum and is open seasonally. Today, the Halsey House provides an authentic setting to exhibit furnishings and tools likely to be used by a prosperous farming family during America’s Colonial Period. In addition, an exhibit titled We’re Still Here: The Evolution of the Shinnecock Nation, Past and Present has a hands-on display of a Shinnecock Indian Village during the Woodland Period, about 1000CE. Behind the house is a Colonial-style herb garden. 1708 House If walls could talk, no structure in Southampton would have a more fascinating tale to tell than the 1708 House — this historic structure is currently a boutique hotel in the heart of the village. Jonas Bower laid the foundation for a house on the same spot 60 years before the current structure was built, and his basement survives today as the hotel’s wine cellar. In 1698, Isaac Bower built a bigger house over the original. The 1708 House’s present owners speculate that conspiratorial patriots might well have gathered in the ancient cellar to exchange information on the activities of the hated British occupying forces during the Revolutionary War— though little has been provided to back up these assertions. The prominent Huntting family of local whaling fame took possession of the house in 1799, after which the Foster family became the owners. In 1993, the present owners undertook a painstaking restoration that has preserved one of the village’s most treasured landmarks. Refreshments will be served at 1708 House from 1–4:30 p.m. along with tours of the house. St. Andrew’s Dune Church This well-known church is located at the foot of Lake Agawam and is one of Southampton’s most picturesque landmarks, easily seen from Gin and Cryder beaches. Originally built as a life-saving station, it was acquired by Dr. T. Gaillard Thomas and donated as a church in 1879. A local carpenter was hired to create its beautiful rustic interior, which is filled with treasures, not the least of which are its 11 Tiffany widows. The church has come under assault from raging seas on several occasions, including in 1938 when it was nearly destroyed by that year’s terrible hurricane. It was lovingly restored and has twice been moved back from the sea. Though it is non-denominational, St. Andrew’s summer services are organized under the direction of Southampton’s St. John’s Episcopal Church. Tickets are $95 in advance/$110 day-of. Purchase tickets at the Rogers Mansion’s Museum Shop, 631-2832494, southamptonhistoricalmuseum.org. Participants can pick up tickets May 27–May 30 at the Rogers Mansion. On the day of the tour, tickets can be picked up or purchased starting at 10:30 a.m. at The Thomas Halsey Homestead (249 South Main Street). Proceeds from this event benefit the education programs of the Southampton Historical Museum and Research Center.

Rethinking Lawns and Being “Green” By jeanelle myers

My father, without fail, fertilized the grass every spring, summer and fall. As I drive from client to client, I see people, professionals and homeowners, pushing the fertilizer spreader. There are more and more houses in this area with very large yards that are maintained with chemical fertilizers and herbicides to keep them constantly green and spotless. The concept of lawns needs to be rethought. It’s creating major problems in our waters. Nitrogen runoff from chemical fertilizers can cause algae bloom in surrounding waters, changing the natural ecology. Nitrogen that’s not absorbed by your lawn can leach into the aquifer, the sole supply for drinking water in Suffolk County. An algae bloom from excess nitrogen blocks sunlight from reaching underwater vegetation, especially in wetlands, which are the spawning grounds for finfish and shellfish. The brown tide that has regularly plagued our waters is suspected to have resulted from excess nitrogen in the water from lawn runoff and septic system leaching. Brown tide causes the loss of eel grass, which has led to a clam decline in the Great South Bay and the scallop harvest collapse. .

sunlight and moisture fit its exact needs. Attempts to replace it with grass will be short-lived, unless the specifics of the situation are changed. The moss will return. Observation of naturally growing plants will indicate conditions for plants that are introduced. It’s often worthwhile to use the expertise of a professional landscaper to make decisions when making these changes. He or she should not only have a design sense that’s compatible with your taste but also be knowledgeable about plants that are suitable to your location and the degree of maintenance they need. An increasing number of lawn care companies and individuals are using techniques that can keep your grass healthy without automatic chemical applications and mowing practices. Chemical fertilizers kill soil microorganisms, which feed plants,

K

so a continuous flow of chemicals is then required. Compost can be applied that will feed the soil. Grass clippings left on lawn cut no shorter than 3” feed the soil. Taller grass shades out weed seeds, eliminating the need for herbicides. This requires more frequent cutting with very sharp blades. The dense grass will retain moisture, thereby reducing water needs. With these techniques, your grass can become a lush carpet of healthy plants. The ever-increasing density of population and homes require us to deliberately consider the natural environment of this area. We appreciate its beauty and want it to remain beautiful. But for that to happen, we will need to change some of our habits. Jeanelle Myers is a professional gardener, landscaper and consultant. jeanellemyersfinegardening.com

In 2005 Yerves moved his office from central Long Island to Montauk and branded the company name, Montauk Homes, LLC. His reputation quickly spread as a high quality east end home builder and designer with over 33 years of experience in the industry.

Rethinking the Hamptons lawn

It’s time for homeowners and professional landscapers to become educated about lawn practices. All licensed landscapers are required by state law to take a fertilizer and turf management course. Establishments that sell fertilizer are required to have signs and supply brochures describing their proper use. Information is easily available online. A carpet of green grass has been considered an essential part of our landscapes since the British upper classes began using lawns as part of their landscapes in the last part of the 19th century. But rethinking and reconfiguring our landscapes can provide enough grass for recreation; reduce the cost of lawn maintenance and supply techniques that can maintain grass without pollution. Why not make your landscape more beautiful, more enjoyable and increase your property value? Parts of a lawn can be replaced with beds of shrubs or flowers that require little or no maintenance. How much lawn do you need for recreation? Patios and stone paths can be installed which, with related beds, will afford pleasant outdoor living. Grass that doesn’t get heavy use can be replaced with clover, which provides food for bees and feeds the soil by fixing nitrogen. Areas of ground covers reduce lawn size and increase soil health. Beds of ornamental grasses require almost no maintenance. Though some think moss needs to be killed and replaced with grass, moss is actually harmless and can be both beautiful and beneficial. It grows where it grows because the conditions of soil pH,

In April, 2013, Yerves started construction on a beautiful 6,600 square foot home, located on a four acre sub division on Main Street, Amagansett called Amagansett Estates. Its proximity to town drew attention to his talents as a builder and design professional, which lead to his latest project in Bridgehampton. “It was the middle of the winter, and I was walking through town to the Bridgehampton Hardware Store, when I saw a ‘for rent’ sign on a quaint storefront. I knew instantly this is where I want to be! I’ve always loved Bridgehampton and now people can meet me and see what I have to offer.”

How they protect us, how they tie us together and connect the generations, from great-grandparent to newborn. And this Mother’s Day season is the perfect time to see The Apron Strings Project at the Vail-Leavitt Music Hall in Riverhead, May 2–4. Inspired by a vintage apron collection that was displayed at the Suffolk Historical Museum in 2012, five local women have created a funny, heartwarming and moving theatrical production that tells the story of the people who inhabited these aprons. The idea for The Apron Strings Project came about when four women—Cindy Clifford, of The WALK Breakfast Club with Mark and Cindy fame, Suffolk Theater Marketing Director Diane Tucci, social media guru Megan Heckman and myself, playwright and freelance writer, Debbie Slevin—met to discuss how to take the art installation and create a living, breathing, relevant show inspired by the more than 200 aprons in Brookhaven historian Diane Schwindt’s collection. The tale of creating and casting the show is peppered with stories of local connections. Writer Joann Kobylenski Vollmer was born in Riverhead and grew up in Calverton on a potato farm. At the suggestion of her godmother Irene Pendzick, she submitted a piece about her grandmother, Jozefa, who emigrated from Poland and started

Jazz band comes to WHBPAC.

B

en Jaffe is the Creative Director and tuba player for the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. He was born into the legacy of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band—his parents, Allan and Sandra Jaffe, founded Preservation Hall in the 1960s as a way to keep New Orleans music alive. And the tradition has thrived. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band plays all over the world year-round, and will be coming to Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on Friday, May 9 at 8 p.m. I caught up with Jaffe at the tail end of Jazz Fest, where the band played to their hometown of New Orleans. You’re coming off a series of performances at Jazz Fest and I imagine that energy is still buzzing in you. How was it? Jazz Fest is a very special event, near and dear to all of our hearts. It’s so much more than a music festival. It’s always incredible to play to the home team, so to speak. To have your community come out and see you. It always feels great. As the director and member of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, you’re a part of a legacy of jazz musicians with a connection to the history of jazz. Do you think about that a lot or are you just playing music most of the time?

our band have performed with Louis Armstrong. We are the continuation of that tradition. That’s what is challenging for people to understand about New Orleans. Things don’t just fall from the sky in New Orleans. They evolve organically. Our musical tradition at Preservation Hall is an evolution from the roots of American music. You hear Buddy Bolden, Louis Armstrong, King Oliver and all the others who influenced us along the way. The Neville Brothers, Dr. John, that’s a part of our history as well. We can only be true to ourselves when we acknowledge those influences.

A SEASON OF ART AND REVOLUTION!

Shannon Brinkman

World Premiere!

There’s a time, when you’re standing onstage, when you are just playing music. But one of my big responsibilities as Creative Director of Preservation Hall is to consider the band’s responsibility and role in our community. It’s something I take very seriously: Making sure that our community in New Orleans is proud of what we do. We are members of the New Orleans community and every musician in the band comes from a musical family whose parents and grandparents were musicians. We wear that as a badge of honor and we want to celebrate our past, present and future as we play music. What’s unique about traditional New Orleans music? The thing I like to focus on is our beginnings, and the beginning of jazz. Today we look at jazz and it’s performed in concert halls and theaters and nightclubs. It’s part of American music history. A hundred years ago when jazz was emerging, it was considered by many to be the devil’s music. It was treated the way people talk about Miley Cyrus today: it was undermining the moral fiber of the country. So to see where jazz is today and the respect people give it is amazing to me. Something we focus on as well is this idea that jazz in New Orleans is still connected to its roots. New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz. It’s where it came into being. We are the Louis Armstrongs, the Jelly Roll Mortons. How do past and present combine in your music? We’ve grown up with this heritage. Members of

What can people look forward to seeing, hearing and feeling at your upcoming show at Westhampton Beach? Our music is New Orleans music, evolved from American dance music. This was music people danced to. It’s upbeat, joyous, and reflective. It’s the music we mourn to, the music we celebrate life to.

Outfitting Your House and Beachy Home By stephanie de troy

The leaves are budding at last. To homeowners and renters alike, this means it’s time to get your home in gear for the new season. We’ve all had plenty of time for springcleaning, so let’s get to the fun part—spring shopping. When it comes to sprucing up the home, it’s nice to mix and

match high-end items with some good bargains. Kind of like clothes shopping, come to think of it. Interior designers often suggest mixing old and new—antique furniture in a modern home (and vice-versa) lend a welcoming warmth and reflect your personal style. It’s a lot of fun mixing up your finds from local tag sales, basics from the outlets and special items from our fine home goods stores. A trip to the Tanger Outlets in Riverhead is a good first step. Pottery Barn Outlet has fantastic home items—bedding, outdoor and indoor furniture, rugs, window treatments and more—at a steal of a price.

A Taste of the Hamptons for Lunch

H

olding court over Southampton’s Main Street at the corner of Nugent, The Golden Pear has become synonymous with the East End, offering hungry beachgoers, or those just in need of a cup of joe, a taste of the Hamptons. Serving freshly made sandwiches, baked goods, coffee and hot food, owner Keith Davis has revealed that not much has changed at The Golden Pear since he opened the first Southampton location in 1987, citing an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality. The attitude is well deserved, as the hoards of people hovering around the coffee counter during peak morning and afternoon rush hours consistently prove. Though summer is clearly the Pear’s busiest season, Davis’s cafes are open year-round, one of the few village mainstays that doesn’t take a hiatus at mid-week during the winter. Building on the success of the Southampton location, Davis opened more storefronts—East Hampton in 1991, Bridgehampton in 1996 and Sag Harbor in 2006. One thing that will change, however, is The Golden Pear’s hours come summer. Though the café has always stayed open later during the high season, this year The Golder Pear will extend its hours further and offer dinner. A special dinner menu will be available, including items like lobster bisque, clam chowder, grilled fish, roasted chicken and the dessert bar. Davis anticipates that the dinner service will appeal to parents on the go, people needing a quick meal after the beach or, as the summer concert

Bargains on the East End.

Hamptons Homes and the Flood Zone Question By janet cohren

REAL ESTATE

ROUND TABLE

Waterfront homes and nearby access to our many waterways are among the great draws of the East End, but they also present one of the biggest concerns for potential homeowners—flooding. With that in mind, we begin this week’s roundtable of Hamptons real estate insiders by posing the question...

How do you help a buyer who expresses concern about choosing a home that may be in a flood zone? What do they really need to know? “Having owned three waterfront homes over the past 20 years, I have experienced first-hand the ongoing changes in FEMA rules, and the rezoning of flood zones in the Hamptons. I advise my buyers to ask questions and educate themselves—has the house ever flooded, what is the current elevation, what is the current flood zone? Then we engage the best professionals in the insurance industry to guide them through the process. As a listing agent, I recommend that my waterfront sellers obtain a recent elevation certificate before listing their home for sale. This is the first step necessary for a buyer to obtain an insurance quote, so why wait until it becomes a stumbling block to the closing

process? My experience has taught me that the more people I incorporate into my ‘professional team,’ the better I can serve my clients. I have a list of the best surveyors, home raisers, contractors, engineers, insurance agents and attorneys, to refer to my buyers and sellers. Each situation is unique, but ultimately it’s about having all facts necessary that make ‘dollars and sense’ before signing on the dotted line.”—Terry Thompson, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson, Corcoran “Buyers in flood zones should know that a new flood insurance law, the Homeowners Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014, was enacted on March 21. Further, they should be advised that while flood insurance rates will go up, they will be capped at premium increases of 18% annually. Yet the key fact buyers should be educated about is that this new law prevents the transfer of ownership of property from serving as the trigger for an exponentially higher new premium rate for flood insurance, as was previously the case since July 6, 2012 under the prior law called ‘Biggert-Waters.’ So, while flood insurance rates will increase over time to take account of the true risk of flooding, it will be a measured increase. More so, a choice to buy in the Hamptons should not be made based upon insurance rates at all, but instead because it’s the Hamptons and, as they say, the reason it’s expensive is because it’s worth it. Lastly, buyers should have their policies reviewed and explained to them so that they understand what is covered and what is not. Following Hurricane Sandy,

“The premium properties are those that are bordering or near the ocean, bays and ponds. We’re surrounded by water and that is our allure.” many homeowners were outraged to learn that their first floor was considered subterranean space that was excluded from their policy. It is imperative that homeowners understand their rights and obligations under their policies so when catastrophe hits, they are ready.”—Andrew Lieb, Esq, MPH, Lieb at Law, P.C. “Waterfront properties are still in demand. Buyers want to confirm that they can purchase FEMA and excess flood insurance and that these conform to all appropriate regulations.”—Lynn November, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Douglas Elliman “The premium properties are those that are bordering or near the ocean, bays and ponds. We are surrounded by water and that is our allure and challenge. The Army Corps of Engineers has established flood zones that are particularly vulnerable to storms and resulting water surges. Construction in these zones must comply with a multitude of local, state and federal guidelines. In addition, it is difficult to obtain private insurance coverage for flood damage (Continued on page 71)

All homeowners in our area should have a conversation with their brokers as to the extent of their coverage and if a FEMA policy is suitable for them.”—Alan Schnurman, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Saunders & Associates “How I help a buyer choosing a home in a flood zone is to know the designation of the flood zone. For example, an ‘X’ zone designation is the best zone since FEMA considers it to be the most minimal risk zone. I would highly recommend they contact a local insurance agency that deals in flood insurance. This way, the buyer knows all the ramifications.”—John Christopher, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Brown Harris Stevens of the Hamptons, LLC.

location, price and suitability and attractiveness to meet the buyers’ needs. Photos highlight a home’s qualities. Good luck.”—Alan Schnurman, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Saunders & Associates. “Most people first start looking at homes on the internet. First impressions are lasting impressions. I’ve seen some listing pictures that are of a different home than the one being listed. A professional photographer’s picture is a must. Depending on the home, what also helps in attracting a buyer’s attention is a virtual tour.”—John Christopher, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Brown Harris Stevens of the Hamptons, LLC. “We only have one chance to make a great first impression! I scratch my head when I see some of the photos agents and sellers use to represent their

listings. With the evolution of technology and social media, most buyers start on the internet before they contact an agent to view homes. It’s vital that agents and sellers employ professional photographers and videographers to offer the best ‘first impression.’ The real estate environment is more competitive than ever, so skimping on the first impression is a mistake. First, homes must be staged to prepare for photography—remove clutter and personal items, clear countertops, make bedding perfect, add flowers, etc. We un-decorate so potential buyers can see the house, not the ‘stuff.’ Once the house is perfect, we bring in the photographer. Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words, and once in cyberspace, it cannot be taken back.”—Terry Thompson, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson, Corcoran Get more real estate at DansPapers.com.

According to The Wall Street Journal, professionallooking pictures are really what most attract people looking for homes. Do you believe some home sellers (and agents) miss the boat on this and why? “As cliché as it is, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, I believe that home sellers and agents must use pictures to sell a property. This is particularly true in the age of the internet, where some purchasers make their decision based on photographs without even setting foot on the property. That being said, some real estate agents take pictures too far by Photoshopping images to depict property that does not accurately reflect what exists, in violation of their license law. Therefore, photos are terrific but should not be manipulated without a proper disclaimer and should only be used by a real estate agent with the ‘written permission from the copyright holder’ pursuant to applicable regulations in New York State.”—Andrew Lieb, Esq., MPH, Lieb at Law, P.C.

“Professional-looking photos of your home are a must. You only get one opportunity ‘to make a first impression.’ Most buyers today start their search on the internet. Your home must stand out from all available choices. The purpose of the photos is not necessarily to sell your home but to bring potential buyers to view it. It is always a combination of
