Spring Struggles Ask anyone around here and they will tell you that spring is struggling to get in. One day it’s 65 degrees in February. The next, it’s 30 degrees in May. This is most unusual for this time of year. What’s going on? I emailed the Lord (at god@gmail. com). I didn’t get a response—he gets a lot of mail. But he did fire out a Tweet. “Trouble is,” he wrote, “global warming. Usually, I can bring it in slow. Think the finale of Beethoven’s Ninth and how it builds. The spring has been real difficult. Regrets and apologies.” (God doesn’t limit himself to 140 characters) We’ve got work to do. Think local. Go easy on the gas pedal. Paint things green. Fight those trying to kill creatures going extinct. Save the earth. -- DR

East Hampton’s Russell Simmons recently launched Narrative, a digital marketing, entertainment and technology company, with longtime partner Tricia Clarke-Stone. Based in New York, Narrative will provide marketing solutions for agencies, publishers and brands. Hamptons resident Alan Alda was honored at Stony Brook University’s 14th annual celebrity gala at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan last week. The university will be naming its Center for Communicating Science for Alda, who hosts Scientific American Frontiers on PBS and has helped train 230 young scientists, all Stony Brook graduate students, using improvisation and other acting techniques. Last week’s event was expected to raise $4 million, which will be divided between student scholarships and expanding the science building.

Amagansett’s Gwyneth Paltrow was named this year’s most beautiful woman by People magazine. Larry Hackett, the magazine’s managing editor, told Good Morning America that Paltrow was chosen because she’s grounded, family-oriented, relatable as a wife and mother balancing Gwyneth Paltrow personal and professional lives—and she looks great. South Fork resident Beth Stern stopped by the Christopher Fischer shop in Southampton last week.


The East Hampton home of Courtney Sale Ross, Ross School founder and widow of Time Warner CEO Steven J. Ross, has officially hit the market. The 7,500-square-foot home on 5.5 acres has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms and 460 feet of Georgica Pond frontage. The property’s asking price is $75 million.

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

The H amptons Subway Newsletter By DAn rattiner

Week of May 3–9, 2013 Riders this past week: 8,821 Rider miles this past week: 96,566 DOWN IN THE TUBE Sarah Jessica Parker and her kids were on the train headed from Amagansett to Montauk on Tuesday. Christie Brinkley was headed toward Sag Harbor from Bridgehampton on Friday at 2 p.m. Bill Clinton was going toward Bridgehampton from Southampton with a bag of golf clubs under his arm. He’s a frequent guest at the Atlantic. NEW SOUND SYSTEM Just installed for the upcoming summer season is a new subway sound system where you’ll hear “Watch Out for the Closing Doors” loud and clear instead of “Mfffff Mfff for mff Closmmmf Doommf” with the old out-of-date system. The new system began operations last Monday, and Hugh Henry, who’s been making the announcements for all these years, began at 9 a.m. to say “Watch out for the closing

doors” into his microphone, but it still came out “Mfffff Mfff for mff Closmmmf Doommf,” which had everybody scratching their heads. Turns out that’s simply how Hugh Henry talks. So on the new, or the old, it comes out the same. Employees at subway headquarters in Hampton Bays did say that Henry was always very quiet when he came into work, and nobody noticed how he talked before. This does bring up whether the money was well spent bringing in the new system, but it’s done and that’s that. Instead, Henry was given four weeks notice on account of his long and steady service with the company, and now Billy Longjohn from Liverpool says the line loud and clear with an English accent. As for Henry, he was miffed and did call a press conference out on the front steps of the Subway building, but those from the media attending said after it was over they couldn’t understand a word he said. HAVE YOUR EVENT WITH US The Hamptons Subway building has been refurbished and repainted inside and out and for the first time is now offering the use of the company cafeteria for large parties, weddings,

New Year new you!

anniversaries, bar mitzvahs and other events, as long as they’re in the evening and not when lunch is served. It’s decorated now in cheery maroon curtains and there is a special maroon cover that goes over the kitchen appliances, sinks, stoves and refrigerator units for such occasions. The Hamptons Subway building, built in 1934, is on Ponquogue Avenue in Hampton Bays and is the only work in America designed by the famed German architect Albert Speer in his monumental fascist style. Call Hamptons Subway to schedule your event. Prices are reasonable. GLOW IN THE DARK TUNNELS TO BE REPAINTED As you may recall, the Harris Paint Company persuaded management to try their glow-inthe-dark paint on one of the subway tunnels. The tunnel between Quogue and Quiogue was chosen. The paint is a government-approved paint that when struck by a light, glows. It was felt that when a train headlight would strike the walls of a dark tunnel, the paint would light the way, but that is not what happened. A subway would come through, striking the paint, but the paint takes 45 seconds before it starts to glow, so the train still had to go through in the dark. Also, the glow was worn out by the time the next train came through 10 minutes later. The tunnels have been scrubbed free of the stuff. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE I have been very happy with the newsletter editorial staff this year. I am awarding them a first prize award as “best subway newsletter for 2012” and all 12 staff members will receive a lapel pin to that effect at lunch next Friday.

Taxi! A man in Riverhead forcibly broke into a home and stole a television, then called a taxi in order to make a getaway. Both the taxi driver—who attempted to evade police with the passenger— and the alleged thief were arrested after they were tracked down by a police dog. The television from the robbery was recovered, which, ironically, made it back to its owners just in time for a special marathon of the hit show Taxicab Confessions on HBO. Shelter Island A fire broke out during construction of the multi-million-dollar roller-coaster park being built on the west side of Shelter Island. The new roller-coaster park, which was anticipated to be completed by this August, caught fire while workers were implementing pyrotechnics on the ride “Fisherman’s Canyon.” Old Man McGumbus, 104-years-old, President and CEO of Bazooka Fire Action Parks Inc., year-round Shelter Island resident and former World War II explosives specialist, said during a press conference that, “While testing the fire-breathing megashark and the fire-breathing ninja elephant, an equipment failure caused the fire-breathing Tyrannosaurus Rex to spontaneously combust. I’d like to personally thank the Shelter Island Fire Department for putting the fires out on the T-Rex, the shark and the frozen banana stand so quickly.” Authorities attribute McGumbus’ out-ofcharacter graciousness to the fact that he knows “There’s always money in the banana stand.” Not So Clever A Sag Harbor woman reported to police that she sent $700 to a person in Florida with the intention of receiving a $3,000 loan. The woman realized it was a scam when the person in Florida asked for more money to release the loan. The woman is out $700, and is looking for anybody out there to loan her $3,700. Not So Reasonable A house in East Hampton has suffered severe roof damage and a woman called police to report it. She suspects that the damage was caused by her father, with whom she has been arguing. She believes that he has been tearing shingles off the roof. Some people ground their daughters.

Istar The Life of a Fun-Loving Creature Who Made Her Home in the Atlantic By Dan Rattiner


ay back in the early 1970s, when concern for endangered animals was in its infancy, scientists began tracking humpback whales that would migrate down to the Caribbean in the wintertime and up to the coast of Maine in the summer. They didn’t have computer chips for tracking back then. But they could take photographs of individual whales. Humpback whale tails, 10 or 12 feet across, are among the biggest in the sea, and their unique colors and patterns make them as individual one from the other as fingerprints are for humans. One of the first 120 humpbacks they identified was a female about 48 feet long. They assigned her the number 0080 and named her Istar, after the Babylonian goddess of fertility named Ishtar. Istar, as seen from the deck of a ship out whale-watching along the corridor between the Caribbean and Maine, was as playful and as unique as any of them. She could be seen in these parts in April and May on her way up to Maine and then in January and February on her way back to the Caribbean as part of the great herd. She would surface and blow water 15 feet into the sky. She would slap her tail with a great bang on the surface of the sea. She would leap up out of the water like an acrobat, sometimes

rocketing her great 60,000-pound bulk as high as 20 feet up, then come down with a great crash into the waves. There was something else that she’d do. It’s called spy-hopping. By wiggling their wide tails underwater, humpbacks can pull themselves up so their heads and flippers are out of the water. She’d look around. Then she’d squeak and grunt (in Caribbean waters) or rumble and roar (in North Atlantic waters), and then dash off to be with her pals. Humpback whales travel in loose herds just below the surface, and during the migrating season they can travel as much as 1,000 miles a month. The full passage takes two or three months. As you may know, humpbacks also talk to one another underwater. They are the noisiest creatures in the sea. The males, but not the females, sing songs. They are long, complex, beautiful and eerie songs. Nobody knows what they are about, but it’s theorized they are mating calls, or a song of alarm to everyone during a period of danger. Humpbacks, alarmed, can travel up to 16 miles an hour. Their usual speed is about four miles an hour. Other humpbacks know about the singing, anyway. Over the years, Istar gave birth to 11 known calves. One was named Cloud, who became the first humpback whale to (Continued on page 24)

The Road to Take Shinnecock Indian Tribe Working to Create New Government for Itself


he Shinnecock Indian Nation held their annual elections in early April, voting in new trustees to run the tribe, and none they elected were involved in the trustee controversy that marred the tribe during this past year. The new trustees are Daniel Collins Sr., Taobi Silva and Brad Smith. Daniel Collins, who received the most votes (166), will be the chairman. This is the first time in a long time that no tribal trustees from an earlier term were re-elected for new terms. It is a new broom, sweeping things clean. The tribe has spoken. The trouble at the tribe this past year resulted from infighting amongst last year’s trustees about the terms of a contract the tribe signed with a Detroit casino developer wishing to assist them in building a gambling casino. It turned out this infighting could not be resolved by the trustees because there’s no legal mechanism in Shinnecock law that allows for a forum where disputes such as this can be quickly decided. As the time for this new election approached, coincidentally, there were several proposals put forward to create a constitution that might have provided guidelines to avoid these sorts of disputes, but they failed to be approved.

That this process is now underway is a hopeful sign. About half the members of the Shinnecock Indian Nation, 662 people, live on an 800-acre peninsula that juts out into Shinnecock Bay between downtown Southampton and Hampton Bays. In existence for thousands of years, its members began the battle to gain federal recognition in 1977, and succeeded in obtaining it in 2011.

The tribe is justifiably proud of all its traditions. It should not have to change those things. But the tribe could add to them. The tribe has a long and well-documented history. And from its first contact with the white settlers in the 17th century, it selected its trustees after closed-door meetings among senior male members. They considered the tribe a family (which it is) whose affairs are no business of the outside world, and they were very private and secretive about themselves. After 1977, the tribe began to make more contacts with the outside, and the manner of

selecting trustees began to change, becoming next a vote by all the tribe’s male members, then a vote by all the tribe’s members—both male and female—then a vote where the voting was made public for all to see. Today, the vote is known throughout the region after it takes place. The tribe is justifiably proud of all its traditions. In fact, retaining its traditions is how the tribe retains its identity. It should not have to change those things. But the tribe could add to them. If the tribe should consider a constitution, there are many different kinds of constitutions they could model one on. The American constitution, with its checks and balances between executive, legislative and judicial, is a good one. At the village level, the newly formed Village of West Hampton Dunes has a protocol for resolving internal conflicts, with a Mayor, a Cleck a Treasurer and a Board of Trustees, all coming at problems from different points of view. Until they do get better organized, the Shinnecock Nation may struggle along without the ability to proceed in an effective way on the larger stage. We wish new trustees Collins, Silva and Smith the best of luck in taking the tribe to what everyone hopes will be the next level.

Istar (Continued from page 21) be tracked from birth. She also gave birth to Scylla, a female who over the years also had 11 calves we know about. Istar was at least five years old when she was first identified back in 1976. She was a mature female by then. A favorite of whale-watching expeditions, you can see photos of her and watch videos of her on the internet. Just search for “Istar, humpback.” You’ll see her in action. On April 17, locals on the beach saw a dead humpback whale rolling in the surf just off Trident Lane in East Quogue. The Southampton Town Trustees were called in, and they hired a contractor with a payloader and cables to come down to the beach and see if she could be hauled up onto the sand. This humpback was about 50 feet long, about the size of a school bus.

Unofficial reports say there was apparently nothing wrong with her physically, other than she had a great trauma to the head.

As tourists and locals watched, the workmen tied a cable around the base of her tail while an excavator dug a bit of a ditch into which she could be secured. By the next day, the job was done. Pictures were taken. People from the Riverhead Foundation came down and photographed her tail, then took what they needed to do a necropsy on her—her heart probably weighed over 400 pounds— and then returned to their lab. After that, the payloader operator cut a ditch further up the beach toward the dune, and by nightfall had the creature buried under a ton of sand. It would be her final resting place. The necropsy takes a long time to get done. There are preliminary work and lab studies to send out. Photos of her tail were sent to the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies in Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Perhaps it was someone they knew? They looked through the whale catalogue they had, then phoned down to Kimberley Durham less than 20 minutes after they had seen the photos of the tail. It was Istar. At this writing, the results of the necropsy have not been published, but the unofficial reports say there was apparently nothing wrong with her physically, other than she had a great trauma to her head, similar to what it looks like when a whale runs into a ship. The environmental community is in mourning over the passing of Istar. “I won’t lie. It’s not easy,” Jooke Robbins, Director of Humpback Whale Research at the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies, told Newsday. “Istar is just an individual known for so long, as such a productive whale. She’s a big favorite for so many people.” Number 0080 is now under the sand in East Quogue, having completed her natural cycle. Born 1972? Died 2013 at age 41? May she rest in peace.

Kill the Internet Let’s Return to the Good Old Days of Manners, Conversation & “Dropping In” By Dan Rattiner


ere was the news last Tuesday. The Dow plunged 143 points in three minutes after a Tweet from the Associated Press flashed across the country reporting the White House bombed and Obama injured. Then the Dow rallied the whole 143 points back in seven minutes when the Associated Press said the Tweet was a fake. They’d been hacked. A few hours later, a group called the Syrian Electronic Army—a group that supports President Assad—claimed responsibility for the hack. But then there were those who said it might be the Syrian government in support of President Assad behind this, since, in recent days, the government has been trying to

scare America into joining the civil war on the government’s side. Also on Tuesday, it was reported that U.S. officials believe the two Boston bombers (one run over by the other and dead, the other now in the hospital and alive) built bombs from instructions they read in an online magazine: go to the kitchenware department and get a stove timer and a pressure cooker. Now go to the main part of the store and get some bolts, nails and other junk along with electric wires and several bags of gunpowder. Now go to a toy store, buy an animated furry animal, take out its mother board and then read the recipe. Boom. After that a Congressman asked—what nation funded this operation? Had to be an evil empire behind this.

Third item of the day involved Beyoncé. I heard this on the radio. People had posted notvery-flattering photographs of her performing halftime at the Super Bowl. They were now on YouTube and blogs and all over the internet, with appropriately adolescent remarks. She’s a pretty lady. Most ladies don’t like pictures of them from unflattering angles. But there they were. Beyoncé’s spokesperson then announced that henceforth, press photographers would be banned from shooting Beyoncé’s upcoming World Tour and would instead, to get pictures, have to get Beyoncé-approved images. Here’s the fourth item. On Tuesday, U.S. prosecutors dropped charges against an Elvis impersonator named Kevin Curtis. A white powder called ricin (which (Cont’d on next page)

The Halseys: Still Farming on the South Fork By jane julianelli


ince the first generation of Halsey farmers (they’re on their 13th generation now), farming in the Hamptons has changed a lot— and yet, it hasn’t changed that much. There are more summer houses and fewer farms, and the farmers that have remained, toiling on the land among swimming pools and tennis courts are an inventive lot who live off their farm—like John and Evelyn Halsey, and their daughters Amy Halsey-Cohn and Jennifer Halsey Dupree, in Water Mill. What they’ve created have become Hampton institutions. Who doesn’t know The Milk Pail, that busy country farm store on Montauk Highway, offering apples, apple cider, pumpkins and peaches? And donuts? Oh, the donuts! But

I digress. FYI: The Milk Pail used to close mid-May until the fall, but now it is open on weekends, all summer! Back in the day, circa 1994, Evelyn was in charge of The Milk Pail, but now Amy manages it, as well as the Greenhouse, which grows Amy’s Flowers, another Hampton institution. Jennifer has taken over the growing process at the farm from John. Things really began to change when the daughters came back from college, over 15 years ago, Jenn from Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and Amy from SUNY Cobleskill. “Each girl, when they graduated, came back and started something new,” says Evelyn. “Amy took a little bit, and I took a little bit,” says Jenn. “I think one of the biggest differences

today is that we’re bigger. What Dad was taking care of was a bit smaller. The U-Pick was just starting to grow, and when we put it on the web, it just took off.” From the daughters’ point of view, the hardest thing about John and Evelyn passing the torch to them was: “Relinquishing control,” says Jenn. “Dad definitely has his ways of doing things. But it just makes sense. If you’ve done it for 50 years and you know an easier way to do it, of course you are going to say, ‘Hey, why don’t you do it this way?’” “You don’t change agriculture significantly from one generation to the next,” says John. “Having said that, now we have Amy’s greenhouse. I never had a greenhouse, and I don’t know anything about doing it, but Amy does.” (Continued on page 28)

Internet (Cont’d from previous page) is highly poisonous) had been sent to President Obama, U.S. Senator Roger Wicker and a state judge in Tupelo named Sadie Holland; inside the envelopes with the powder was a note saying “I am KC and I approve this message.” The Feds had looked around and found that a fellow named Kevin Curtis had written notes on the internet that ended “My name is Kevin Curtis & I approve this message.” So they arrested him. And then, on Tuesday, they dropped the charges. The reason they gave was that they found no incriminating evidence against him at his home or place of work. By this time, the feds had begun to investigate a man named Everett Dutschke, who some people in Tupelo said had a grudge against Curtis and was known for doing things to trip him up, such as calling his sponsors and telling them Curtis was a bad guy. They searched Dutschke’s house and business. Ricin and the sorts of things you need to make ricin (another internet recipe?) were reportedly found. Also, several years ago, Dutschke had run for state assembly against Judge Holland’s son Stephen and lost. Now Dutschke is under arrest. Finally in the news was Anthony Weiner, a former Queens Congressman. He had resigned in disgrace in 2011 when it was found that he had taken lewd pictures of himself and then sent them to women by email and Twitter. The pictures were of his chest, his biceps and what may or may not have been his penis. Anyway, last Tuesday he announced he might throw his, um, hat into the ring and join the crowd running for Mayor of New York City. A poll had come to

his attention. It said that if he were in the race and the primary election were held tomorrow, he would run second in the field of six with 15% of the vote. Only a Ms. Quinn (recommended by the current mayor, who is retiring) would run ahead of him, and she was fading amid reports that she was alledgedly a mean, bad tempered and vindictive lady. The fifth item, there was Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, now holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to keep from being extradited to Sweden on sexual assault charges, announcing the name of his campaign director in what he says will be his upcoming run for a seat in the Australian Parliament. He’s a citizen of Australia. If he can win a seat, he’ll be under the protection of Australian parlimentary privilege rules, which guard politicians against legal action over comments made in parliament. Yes, it was a busy day in the news last Tuesday. And everybody knows because everybody is staring at their cell phones at bus stops, in restaurants, on street corners, even at the beach and even behind the wheels of their cars, which we know because we find such objects clutched in a death grip in their hands after they smash into cars ahead of them. Wait a minute, there was one more item. On Tuesday, the Morgan Library and Museum announced that an elderly woman named Marjorie Sheard, now living in Canada, had sold them nine letters she had received when she was young from the reclusive author J. D. Salinger. It was 1941 and J. D. was 22 and

living in New York and it was before he wrote his masterpiece The Catcher in the Rye and she was 24 and living in Canada. She was a fan and had written to him wanting to know how to get published. He wrote letters back, encouraging her and giving advice. The correspondence developed into a flirtation. He didn’t know what she looked like. He asked if she would send him a picture. She demurred, then changed her mind and did. “Sneaky girl,” Salinger wrote her. “You’re pretty.” Though she never got anything published and never came to meet him, she kept his letters in a shoebox in a closet for the next 70 years. Now 95, she is in frail health and needs money to pay medical bills, so the letters were sold to the Morgan. After The Catcher in the Rye, and all the praise and publicity about it in 1951, Salinger bought a farmhouse up a long gravel road in rural Cornish, New Hampshire and lived there the rest of his life without ever making a public statement or being seen in public. (Except occasionally in a grocery, by a few farmers.) How did he do that? Maybe it’s time we go back to the days when a Greta Garbo or a J. D. Salinger could do that. Keep to ourselves if we want to. Or just have a few friends. We’d sit around and once in a while the phone would ring. We’d go for walks on the beach. Write letters. Drive a few miles to “drop in” on friends unannounced. Have long, soulsearching conversations in coffee houses. Read the classics sitting by the fire in your library with the dog at your side. Kill the internet.

“One of the biggest differences in how we do things now is with the pumpkins and the tillage.” —Jenn Halsey-Dupree cider with ultraviolet light, which preserves the real apple cider flavor and kills as much, if not more, bacteria as pasteurization.” Another change is in tillage—which is the preparation of the soil by digging, stirring and overturning. “One of the biggest differences in how we do things now is with the pumpkins and the tillage,” says Jenn. “Before, you would take a plow and flip the dirt all the way over. We’re trying to reduce that because now we’re finding that it actually injures the soil. By reducing the amount of tillage going through, it keeps your soil healthier.

“We’re also trying to incorporate cover crops and legumes. Cover crops put nutrients back into the soil. We’re using vetch and peas.” John adds: “There’s nothing scientific about the way our ancestors handled the ground before there was equipment strong enough to plow. A shovel and a hoe and a garden are all they had. We’re doing the same, except that now we’re doing it on a much larger scale. We have the equipment that will handle this type of reduced tillage. Also there’s a lot more known about the crops that are being grown.” John farmed potatoes with his father, Everett Lawrence Halsey, before he went into dairy farming and eventually apple and pumpkin farming. “I think the biggest similarity today to what has gone on throughout our history,” says John, “is that we want to continue as always, farming here in the Hamptons and living in harmony with tourists and locals alike. I think the biggest change is that the farm is now run by women, Amy and Jenn, and I’m happy about that. It’s their farm.”

Herding Cattle and Tourists to the Montauk Plain


find it amazing how little we really know, or in many cases, even care, about our ancestors. In many other cultures, like that of our Shinnecock neighbors, ancestry is sacred and details are passed from generation to generation. The East End’s very own Gwyneth Paltrow is partly to blame for my recent fascination with this issue. In 2011, she was featured on the television show Who Do You Think You Are? On the show each week, a different celebrity goes on a journey to trace his or her family tree. That was the catalyst for me to explore my own family history. It took a couple years, but I finally got the information I sought. To my surprise, I discovered that my great grandfather and his father were both horsemen who, on occasion, sought to earn a wage by driving cattle up the trail. That might explain why I’m a fan of the old western movies. Unfortunately, information as to exactly what specific cattle trail they drove was not available.

What if I could herd a bunch of tourists up the road? It would be sort of like herding cows. Most would undoubtedly be wearing leather. I recently read that East Hampton’s Main Street was where, for more than a century, the annual cattle drives to Montauk began. This was, of course, before the Hamptons became so commercialized. The cattle from East Hampton and the surrounding areas were driven to Montauk in the spring to pasture and then returned via the same route in the fall. This got me fanaticizing about the feel of leather on my backside and the sounds and smells of bringing the herd to summer pasture. The sun would be shining on my shoulders as I kept the herd in check. Yes— being part of a good old-fashioned cattle drive was what I longed for. That gave me an idea wherein I could pay tribute to those who came before me and perhaps create a sense of nostalgia for others at the same time. It was really pretty simple—I would rent some cows and run them up through Main Street just before summer. I had no idea what I would do when I got to Montauk, but I figured every adventure has its challenges and unknowns. This was important to me and I vowed that I would not be deterred. I was pretty certain there were many horsemen and horsewomen in the Hamptons who would be willing to help me drive them little doggies. Matt Lauer, Christie Brinkley, Richard Gere and others are known horse aficionados. Maybe I could even get Gwyneth to ride along. However, my excitement was soon dimmed. History be damned as I ran into roadblocks every step of the way. Permits, town meetings, insurance, emergency services personnel, poop clean-up, etc. “What about the cows?” I asked. “They need that Montauk grass” “Sorry” was all I got. It was as if the past was being ignored, in

favor of the new and improved East End. All I wanted to do was to bring a little bit of history back to the people and at the same time make my ancestors proud. I had a good mind to just run the herd anyway and let the chips, both cow and otherwise, fall where they may. Then a thought came to me. What if, instead of cows, I could just herd a bunch of tourists up the road a bit? It would be sort of like herding cows. Most of these people would undoubtedly be wearing or carrying leather, whether it be shoes, skirts, belts, wallets or purses. Sure they would try to get away, but I expected a certain number of cows would have attempted the same. And besides, tourists aren’t really

that much smarter than cows. I don’t believe there are any laws on the East Hampton books that specifically prohibit “tourist herding.” In some way, this might even be better than herding cows, because those tourists who make it to Montauk will be thirsty and in need of refreshments. That might bode well for the merchants. Perhaps this will become an annual event like the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona. Locals might even start referring to me as a cowboy hero. Yes—we should honor our history, personal and otherwise. Now I just need to find someone who will lend me a horse, saddle and possibly bail money.

A Tribute to a Friend, Dashiel Marder When I was 11 years old, coolest thing to do on DAVID LION’S the the weekends was play a game called “Manhunt” in the backwoods in Springs. The game was basically a team-based version of hideand-seek in the woods. Your team would win based on how long you could hold out in the woods before being caught, and the best players, of course, were always the hardest to find. This one game, for whatever reason, dictated the entire social activity of most grade-school boys in Springs during the 1990s. And I still remember vividly one of the most terrifying games of Manhunt I ever played. About 10 of my friends showed up at my father’s house in East Hampton, one of whom was Dash Marder—who at the time I thought was probably the coolest guy on the face of the earth, based almost entirely on his cool name and reputation as an athlete, as well as the fact that nearly every girl in school was madly in love with him.


Dash was one of those strong, softspoken guys. You never really knew his thoughts. You just knew he was cool when you were around him. At about 11 o’clock at night, the game was on, and out into the darkness went Dash Marder, along with a group of other Springs kids from that generation. I remember how amazing the starlight was that night. No cell phones, no walkie-talkies, no flashlights, just kids in the woods. Hunting one another. Within 20 minutes I heard a scream in the woods. “I FOUND LEE!!!! GUYS, LEE IS IN THE SAND PIT!!!” “JULIAN! I GOT JULIAN!!!” As the game progressed, we’d either laugh about how stupid of a hiding place somebody had, or admire how clever they were. But on this night in particular the game was getting kind of boring, because Dashiel Marder could not be found. It was like trying to find Rambo. Everyone else on his team had already been caught. I searched and searched and searched. I was climbing over abandoned concrete foundations, going up massive hills and surveying the landscape from the top of them. Nothing. And then, almost hypnotically, I heard the strangest sound. Sort of like an owl or a raven, but it was really close, and my blood pressure increased in fear. I looked up, and way up high in a tree I saw some sort of figure, but I couldn’t see it clearly because moonlight was completely obstructing my vision. Is that? What the hell? BOOM! Out of nowhere, Dash dropped down from what I gather was 20 feet above. He fell, in

complete stealth, nearly head-first, with his chest hitting my back and the force of his fall knocking me to the ground. It took half a second to figure out what had just happened. “You alright, Dave?” To which I replied by laughing my ass off. That was 20 years ago, and during those 20 years I think I spoke all of 20 sentences with Dash, even though I was around him quite a lot growing up. We worked together at Main Beach and frequently would hang out in the same group as kids. He was just one of those strong, soft-spoken guys. You never really knew his thoughts or emotions. You just knew he was cool when you were around him. All of his family is like that.

Dash, who is brothers with Mica, Silas and Tucker Marder and whose father is Charlie Marder, owner of Marders Landscaping in Bridgehampton, was lost at sea during a worldclass spearfishing expedition off the coast of Indonesia nearly two weeks ago, as of this writing. He dove down to hunt for a fish and did not come back up. He was 30 years old. The search for him at sea is ongoing. And I don’t think anybody who knew this young man will stop keeping an eye out for him when they look out at the ocean. I like to think that’s how he would have liked it. Read David’s blog daily at

Cover Artist: Kevin Muente What attracts you to use painting and photography to tell these stories? My work allows me to be both a film director and an artist. No one would pay me to make a movie [laughing] so I take photographs, using models, and then I paint the image.

By Marion Wolberg Weiss


Do you, in fact, get ideas from films? The cover was from a photograph I took, inspired by movies and other artworks. I watch pop movies and classic films, and this image someone suggested was inspired by Lars von Trier’s film Melancholia. I see that Von Trier’s works use the environment as a character. So do your paintings. Where else do you get inspiration for your settings? I am influenced by artists like Edward Hopper and by Gregory Crewdson’s photographs. And Sally Mann’s photo work with her children.

How about your style? How would you describe it? It’s realistic. It pays attention to perception as far as details go. It’s also surreal. I also feel it’s “painterly realism.” I think I just made up that term.

Muente attributes much of his success to teachers. In return, teaching is his way of giving back.

Besides the importance of the environment and story-telling, what else about the cover is usually part of your subject matter? I had this idea about a young couple looking at a raft. You don’t see it in the image, but I like to use objects. Stephen King wrote a short story called “The Raft.” My raft is a symbol for desire and salvation.

Where did you get your art training? As an undergraduate, I went to the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. I went to graduate school at the University of Cincinnati.

Where do these ideas about content come from? They come from my head, dreams, experiences. Some of my work is autobiographical; some come from my family or students.

The reason I ask is because you are now a full professor at Northern Kentucky University. How important was your own education and how does that relate to your teaching art? There is no way I would be where I am if it weren’t for my excellent teachers. Teaching is my way of giving back to my students. Teaching has affected my art. I still think of myself as an art student.

Taking all these sources into account, what’s your primary goal when creating a painting? I take stories that my friends and family tell me and figure out how to tell their story.

Kevin Muente’s work can be seen at Sag Harbor’s RJD Gallery, 90 Main Street. Call 631-725-1161 or visit The artist’s website is

his week’s cover by Kevin Muente immediately captures our attention, not because of the subjects, who seem normal, but because of the atmosphere. Something seems “off,” but we don’t know exactly what. The title of the work, “All That You Can’t Leave Behind,” doesn’t help to clarify the meaning, either. Which is how Muente likes it. Basically, Muente likes to combine landscape and figures to convey a narrative that is ambiguous, to say the least. Consider some of his other works: a boy holding a rifle in a field; a woman with a baby carriage amidst tall grass; a man running with a dog in his arms, again in a field. If such images remind you of a movie, you would probably be right.

Is Apple Seeing A Revenge of the Nerds? By MATTHEW APFEL

I’m a proud, early adopter of Apple. I’ve raved about its products countless times in this column. My romance with Apple began with early iMacs. We dated on and off for years, but it was hard to fully commit when my friends and work colleagues were still using Dells and PC products. But when the almighty iPod came along, the love was sparked forever. Or so I thought. I was dumbstruck by how simple and clean it was. The idea behind the iPod was even cooler: my music could now travel with me and provide an instant soundtrack on any occasion. I distinctly recall showing mine off at a party. People gathered around, wanting to know how I got it. At the time I thought: “There is no chance that anyone will ever top this gadget.” That party took place about 12 years ago, and we all know what’s happened since. Apple has enjoyed the greatest run and most unforeseen comeback in modern corporate history. People forget that before Steve Jobs returned to the fold, Apple was a dying brand. The company lost money. Its very survival was in jeopardy. Today, Apple is arguably the richest company in the world, despite its recent stock sell-off. But guess what? Small cracks are starting to form in Apple’s fortress of global tech domination. One company has risen up and is seriously challenging the almighty Cupertino Death Star. It’s not Facebook, Microsoft, Sony or any of the usual suspects. It’s Samsung—another tech company whose fortunes were on the decline just a few years ago. Which product enabled Samsung to begin its own remarkable growth story? The Galaxy Smartphone. Consider this: Last quarter, Samsung sold 70 million Galaxy handsets worldwide. That’s more than double the amount of iPhones. In the U.S., the company recently announced a deal to put Samsung mini-stores inside Best Buy outlets, a smart way to get its devices into consumers’ hands. Samsung also plans to launch its own app store, with much lower commissions than Apple’s controversial 30% take. This news has game developers and content owners eager to work directly with Samsung—not Apple. Why does the Galaxy sell so well? It’s not the price. Top-of-the-line Galaxy S4s can cost almost as much as iPhone brethren. It’s much simpler than that. Samsung has come up with a set of cool features that are more appealing to young consumers. (There was also that little patent infringement lawsuit. Samsung was ordered to pay Apple $1 billion, but who’s counting?) The screen is significantly larger than the iPhone. It has a longer battery life, which is a huge complaint among Apple loyalists. Plus, you can actually swap out the battery on the Galaxy. You’ll need a chisel and scotch tape to do that on your iPhone. What about the camera? Well, the Galaxy S4 boasts a 13-megapixel version with state-ofthe-art software that helps you manipulate and

enhance your images with amazing results. The iPhone 5? Eight megapixels and that’s about it. You’ll need to purchase third-party apps to improve those images. Like the iPhone, the Galaxy has a second camera to enable front and back view. Only the Galaxy lets you record and shoot images from both lenses at the same time. There are also crazy features that Apple hasn’t introduced. The Galaxy tracks your eyes and dims the screen when you look away, to save battery life. It also stops a video if you happen to glance elsewhere. Tilt your head up or down and the web page you’ve been reading automatically scrolls. For slobs among us, the Galaxy has an “air

gesture” feature that lets you surf, navigate and dial without physically touching the screen. It’s a nice addition if you’re munching on greasy French fries or sticky ice cream. With the Galaxy, you get the impression that Samsung really looked at how consumers use their phones and developed the best features for their behavior. With the iPhone, you get the impression that Apple wanted to build something really elegant and beautiful. It will be interesting to see how this tech war plays out. The next battleground appears to be the James Bond SmartWatch. As a consumer, I’m thrilled. No matter the outcome we all benefit from these better, smarter, more amazing devices.

A Shelter Island Shellibration By sally flynn

The weather is just warming up now, and this is the best time of year for getting new shells. All winter they’ve been washing ashore, waiting for beachcombers. Some people take the short cut and buy bags of exotic shells from the stores, but off-island shells don’t count. You have to get in there and get the real thing. If you live here, you have to have shells in your bathroom. They can be in a net on the

wall, or along the edge of the tub, or acting as a soap dish, or framing a mirror, but you just have to have something shelly in your bathroom—it’s in the town by-laws. You get bonus points for carrying the theme into the bedroom. Maybe wallpaper with shells, bed sheets with shell patterns, a shell-shaped rug. However, if your husband needs a snorkel and goggles to find you in bed, this is a sign that you’ve carried the theme too far. Living rooms are exempt from shell decor. You are free to express any non-nautical urges you may have, but your behavior will be noted.... Years ago I was in a house where with ranch theme decor everywhere. The lady was from Wyoming and missed her Great Plains vistas. It

had to be hard to be a cowgirl on the Island. Cars: It’s mandatory if you live here to have a variety of seashells on your dashboard and at least a pound of sand in your car carpets. I always loved having a little crab on the dashboard. I called him Navi-crab. He pointed me home. I took the cowgirl beachcombing and she really got into it, especially when she saw everything else in the sand—beach glass, underwear, a single sneaker, paperbacks, halffull tubes of sunscreen. An amazing variety of things wash ashore, and each one has a story behind it. Once I found a toaster. I just couldn’t figure that one out. “Let’s see, towels, sunscreen, Cokes, sandwiches—hey honey, should we take the toaster?” “Nah, lets take the iron, we took the toaster last time.” “Yeah, but that trip got cut-off by the rain, remember? The toaster didn’t get to have any fun on the beach at all.” “Fine, bring the toaster. Make sure the cord is on good so it doesn’t get loose when you take it for walks on the beach. And remember to bring plastic bags in case it has to crumb.” “Hey baby, remember when we took the microwave to the beach? Everybody was looking at us. Can’t blame them, she was a beauty.” “Oh yeah, and her cute little turntable...I have a picture of her on the beach as my screensaver at work—you know the one, where she got that seaweed on her handle. Everybody stops to look at it at work.” “I’m thinking we should take the little TV from the bedroom sometime this summer.” “He’d love it! But if we take him, we have to take the flat-screen, too. It just wouldn’t be fair otherwise. We’d use up a lot of sunscreen, I know, but we need to treat all the electronics equally if we want to live this techno-bio lifestyle.” They say it takes all kinds to make a world…

Epicurean Adventure on The End Sundays on the East End— so many options, what’s an epicure to do? Start the day with brie. Stale baguette slathered with last night’s richest dinner party leftover is much classier than cold pizza. A survey revealed there’s not much edible in my garden beyond baby arugula, parsley and mints. Thankfully, Better & Dale’s Farmstand is now open next to Bay Burger on the Sag Harbor Turnpike. I loaded up on their famous eggs, bok choy, asparagus, kale and carrots. There’s nothin’ sweeter than an carrot that’s over-wintered on Long Island!

The Montauk Lighthouse on Turtle Hill

sailed off! It was exciting for a few minutes, then my husband and I left him and his girlfriend to tend it while we headed to the snack bar. Fried clams and $14 margaritas tempted but I decided to hold out for lunch. Wise move. We all motored over to Amagansett Square. After rifling through the East End’s only honestto-goodness record store, Innersleeve Records, we landed at Hampton Chutney Company. I have no idea what they ate—I had my #14, a huge dosa of roasted beets and butternut squash with goat cheese. After a day’s adventure, I kept it simple back at the home hearth—green salad, onion quiche and maple syrupy carrots with parsley. And Wölffer wine. Local is best.

The view on the way up the lighthouse tower

The weather is fine, but we’re not yet in the “the season”—so overland travel is possible. My family headed out to Montauk for the day. I’m ashamed to say that this my first foray INSIDE the Montauk Lighthouse. (I’ve only lived out here for 14 years. George Washington only commissioned this lighthouse in 1792.) What a view! What a history! The first lighthouse built in New York State and our nation’s fourtholdest remaining lighthouse. I was also impressed with the collection of Native American artifacts—perhaps the widest range of Indian scrubs (for cleaning pots) on display on the East End. AND there’s a book on display about the East End’s famous native, edible plant—the sagapon. A sign said I could buy a copy in the gift shop, so I scooted down there. False advertising. I’m now stalking Fran, a lady who works there, trying to convince her to photocopy her personal copy of this book for me. Determined to enjoy the day despite the heartbreak of losing out on vital victual info, I was off to fly a kite on the beach, i.e. watch my son fly one. It was amazing. He put the kite together, held it at arm’s length and whoosh! It

B Fit, B Fab, B Good at B East This past Sunday, B East Real Ryder Fitness Studio in Amagansett hosted a ride, with all the money raised going toward people affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. I registered online at, excited that a local fitness studio was willing to donate their time and money to a greater good. All proceeds went to The One Fund, a charity established by Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick and Boston mayor Tom Menino to help people most impacted by the April 15 tragedy. I thought I was being extra-sacrificial with my time, because I was going to a class that I had mentally vowed never to try again. My standoff with spinning came after one particularly unpleasant experience at college in North Carolina, and I hadn’t attended a class since. In retrospect, I regret that decision. Clearly, all spinning studios are not created equal. B East instructor Romaine Gordon, a Massachusetts native, crafted a class that was both intense and motivating. I’ve discovered that spinning is a full-body workout, and this is one of the few studio classes I’ve taken that mimics the cardio benefits of running. It’s also resistance free, which is a nice break for joints if you’re pounding pavement several times a week.

Spinning is unique in that each rider has a say in how difficult their workout will be. Romaine told us when to up our resistance—from a level 1, steadily increasing to a level 10—but each rider controls what that means by turning a knob at the front of the bike. Cycling classes, particularly at B East with their RealRyder bikes, give the feel of a road bike. Your feet are completely locked into the pedals, which makes it easy to increase your speed without fear of falling off. The RealRyder bikes are My workout shirt able to move from side to side, mimicking rounding a curve. Controlling the motion works your core as you try to keep the bike steady. The hour-long class was feisty, as we climbed up and down up a series of hills, with some sprint straightaways also thrown into the mix. As we rode through the varied “terrain,” we alternated between seated cycling and cycling while standing (re: ab workout). And when I was feeling beaten by a “hill,” Romaine came through with a reminder of why we got up early this weekend morning to go to Amagansett. Was it for us? Was it for Boston victims? The combination of benefits the class represented? Whatever the case, “keep pedaling” was the answer.

The music was upbeat and, most importantly, loud enough to drown out thoughts about how hard you were working. We ended the class on a high note, all joining in with a group rendition of Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline,” a staple at Boston baseball games. We sprinted like we were on a long, flat road and waved our sweaty towels in the air for the “ba ba ba!” part. After class, I enjoyed petting the sweet house dog before embarking on a nice stroll through Amagansett village. Brunch was my first-ever dosa from Hampton Chutney Co. I opted for the Breakfast Dosa with mango chutney. It consisted of two eggs, spinach, roasted tomato, jack cheese and avocado. For those not in the know, i.e. me pre-dosa, a dosa is a light, crispy sour-dough crepe made from rice. And it’s about a foot-and-a-half long, prompting me to dub it a breakfast burrito of champions. Which is exactly what I felt like eating after my ride. I’ll be back for both. Now through May 25, save your bottles when you buy Hamptons Water Company water at the studio or elsewhere. Once you have 24 empty bottles, bring them to the studio to get a $1.20 deposit back and one free class! How’s that for some local love? K. Laffey

Collectible Cars for Today’s Auto Enthusiast By robert gelber

insanely expensive to maintain. Just look at, sit in or drive any Ferrari and you’ll understand why they are so highly coveted. However, if you don’t know cars, hire an expert if you want to purchase any model. Jumping from the high-end cars above, there are always the very affordable old favorites, like vintage British cars. There is a great deal of charm about wire wheels, long bonnets and wooden facias (and tops that leak in the

Twenty or 30 years ago, I owned three 1937–51 Ford wooden station wagons. None of them cost me more than $1,000. Today they sell for about $100,000. My old 1964 Ferrari Lusso— which I bought in Italy when it was two years old for $4,200—today has a value of about $500,000. And my old Porsche race car (the actual one, not one like it, but the actual one I’d owned) just sold for $800,000. It cost me less than a Honda when I purchased it. I didn’t collect these cars, I just owned them. I was too stupid to keep them. But that doesn’t mena that you have to be. So here’s some advice from a really clueless car collector. Keep the following cars I mention, and keep them stowed away—except on sunny days, of course—and in 20 years you might be able to send your kids to college with Honda’s S2000 convertibale, a keeper what they have gained in value. I’m not kidding. First, go out and buy any air-cooled Porsche rain). They are all terrifically affordable and, 911 (actually called a 993) you can find. Porsche being mostly ragtops, are great summer cars stopped making them in 1997 and went to for the Hamptons. Historically, all of these water-cooled engines. Get the best low-mileage cars have experienced slow but positive examples you can find (that is good advice on value growth over the years. My current best any car I mention). buy is the MGB. Stick with the early chrome Ferraris are always a good investment, bumper model, if possible (you can convert but they’re expensive to get into and the later, rather insane-looking rubber-bumper

model to an earlier chrome-bumper look if desired). Buyer beware, all these cars are rust prone. My favorite British collectible is the 1967–69 Jaguar XKE. About five years ago I wrote an article in Dan’s Papers about how XKE coupes were undervalued. Good ones were then selling for about $25,000. Today, good coupes cost $100,000. If you want to own what is considered to be the most beautiful mass-produced sports car ever made, put an XKE in your garage. I personally think the coupe is prettier than the convertible, though less valuable.  Asian cars have gotten little respect by car collectors, but there are bargains to be had, and these cars run forever. Trust me, these cars are going to climb in value. My favorite is the Acura NSX—this is the car that gave them nightmares in Stuttgart. An allaluminum Honda tour de force of engineering that’s beautiful, fast and easy to own. The only letdown in this car is the Honda Accord-ish interior. This is a Honda superstar. The second Honda superstar is the S2000 convertible, with an insanely powerful two-liter engine to die for. The only thing I found wrong with this bullet is that I don’t fit in the thing, and I’m only 5’11”.  Anyway, if you fit in the thing, it’s currently very inexpensive, and a solid gold investment. Okay, I’ve run out of space, but not out of investor car picks. More to come in my next column. Happy driving…and collecting.

NEWS BRIEFS Compiled by kelly laffey

Seed Planting Initiative to Take Place This Weekend EAST END: Help our dunes! In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, East End shorelines were left vulnerable, particularly due to the loss of vital plant life on the dunes. Plants naturally cleanse the soil of pollutants, as they keep the dunes strong through their root system. Head to the Fair Foods Market in Sag Harbor on High Street this weekend to pick up the “seed bombs”—balls of clay, soil and seeds. Only very specific native dune plants will be used in this project. Volunteers will then be directed to areas along the Long Island shore. Upon arrival at their destination, they will walk the beach and sow the seeds by throwing them into the dunes. The rest is up to nature, as the rain will dissolve the ball and prepare the seeds to germinate. This is not the first time locals have used plants to shore up East End beaches. Last month, volunteers from the Surfrider Foundation planted dune grass on the beach at the end of Flying Point Road in Water Mill. Similar initiatives are being planned in various other beach communities, including the Rockaways.

Restoration Begins on Historic Sayre Barn

The circa 1825 Sayre Barn on Meeting House Lane in Southampton

SOUTHAMPTON: Dismantling began this week on Southampton Historical Museum‘s 1825 Sayre Barn. The barn is located at the Rogers Mansion Museum Complex on Meeting House Lane in the Village of Southampton. In 2008 the barn began to show signs of extreme deterioration and was closed to the public as a hazard. A capital campaign soon began to raise funds for its reconstruction. After many years of collecting donations from the Southampton community and several Long Island foundations, the museum finally met its goal this year. The Sayre Barn will be under reconstruction through the summer and, “hopefully,” open in time for the museum‘s annual Harvest Day Fair on Saturday, September 28. In related news, the museum will be selling antique farm equipment and miscellaneous tools from the 19th and early 20th centuries. All proceeds from the Antique Tool Sale benefit the museum’s collection preservation fund. The sale will take place at 159 Main Street, at the corner of Jagger Lane in Southampton. Free admission.

Drink in the whole North Fork!

So much to see and do this weekend!

By nicholas chowske


’ve heard that a lot of good things have been coming out of Peconic Bay Winery lately, and I’m not just talking about the music, so I decided it was time for a tasting. I was quite surprised, however, that I didn’t have to make the trek out to Cutchogue to sample their wines. Peconic Bay Winery has opened a satellite tasting room and store, named Empire State Cellars, at the Tanger Outlets in Riverhead. This store is a one-stop-shop for nearly every craft beverage bottled in New York. In fact, this location has done so well that their Cutchogue tasting room is now only open for events and to wine club members. Empire State Cellars features wines from all across Long Island, as well as from New York’s other major winemaking regions. I was pleased to find that they not only feature craft beers from across the state, but they also have a “mix-a-six pack” area where you can choose different New York brews. When I first walked into Empire State Cellars, I was a bit overwhelmed—this is not your typical tasting room. Aside from the fact that it’s located in a giant outlet mall, the front half of the store has the look and feel of a liquor store, albeit a nice one. The second half, however, has a different atmosphere entirely. In the back, past the large tables and benches made of reclaimed-wood, and sitting beneath a massive map of New York State, is the tasting bar. While Empire State Cellars may carry wines from

across the state, they prominently feature Peconic Bay Winery. I started on the light side with Peconic Bay’s 2008 Steel Chardonnay—one of their best sellers. Although I prefer my chardonnays to be oaked, this wine came close to winning me over. It was very aromatic, and reminded me more of a sauvignon blanc than a chardonnay. It was crisp and clean on the palate, yet fruity and full of flavor. I then moved on to the rieslings. Peconic Bay’s dry riesling was an all-estate wine—all of the grapes were grown at Peconic Bay Winery—and it was bone-dry with beautiful acidity, but fresh and clean with notes of green apple and citrus, and just a hint of pine. This contrasted with the 2011 Semi-Dry Riesling, which was much more fruit-forward and sweeter. Next up was the Gewürztraminer, which was sourced from the Finger Lakes region. It was very dry and floral with a powerful acidity, yet delicate on the palate with a hint of rose and white pepper. From there, it was on to Peconic Bay’s Lowerre Family Estate La Barrique Chardonnay 2010. While the name may be a mouthful, it’s worth every syllable. This chardonnay was barrel-fermented in oak, rather than steel, giving it a medium body with lots of buttery-complexity. After the whites, it was on to the reds. The first two I tasted were Peconic Bay’s Lot #4 and Lot #5, which are blends. Lot #4 was a blend of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, which gives it a soft, fruity body with just a little spiciness. Lot #5, which was a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot, was soft

and fruity as well, but was a bit dryer. Venturing deeper into the reds, I tried the Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, individually. The 2009 Merlot had a medium-body with a soft woodiness of oak and cedar on the nose, with a touch of blackberry and cherry on the palate. The 2010 Malbec was a delightfully fruit-forward wine, with aromas of blackberry and leather, a medium body and a complex flavor. It was, by far, my favorite red of the tasting. Finally, I sampled the 2010 Cabernet Franc. This dry red had a full body and powerful redfruit aroma, but was surprisingly mild on the palate, with a hint of blueberry.

Brosnan, Buckley and Desperation

Openings, closings see and be seen.

By karen ann campbell


ucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood in East Hampton are 16 acres designed to delight and expand your spirit. The LongHouse Reserve website explains, “Jack Lenor Larsen, internationally known textile designer, author, and collector is one of the world’s foremost advocates of traditional and contemporary crafts.” Larsen shares his property and collections of art and artifacts through the LongHouse Reserve. Last month the LongHouse opened for the season. When Larsen emerged onto the lawn, a crowd of admirers gathered around him. Dressed in a Scandinavian-looking coat of white wool and blue and red decoration, he was as interesting as the sculpture. Clearly people treasure him and this place he has gifted to the community. The art show chosen for the opening of the season, “Roots of Modern,” filled my imagination. Inside the gallery were amazing objects set side-by-side; some 5,000 years old next to contemporary works. Some were useful tools with great design features, like the fish scalers. These stones are cut in the shape of fish with protruding nubs like a lemon zester. They were both functional and beautiful, very tactile. My favorite thing in the show was a small loom made of bamboo bent into a triangle that employed a piece of bone to separate the warp and the woof. It’s displayed in the process of weaving a 1 1/2 inch fabric. Each new row was very tiny and delicate. The collection has fantastic pottery of amazing

shapes, and the larger pieces make one wonder about the sheer time they took to create. There were also many items that were beaded with intricate stitches. All of this is wonderful. However, the gardens captivated me the most. I’m new to the East End and had never been to the LongHouse gardens before. I was drawn from one area to another. The plantings, shapes and sculptures are amazing. If you are planning a garden, I recommend visiting this garden for ideas first, regardless of whether you live on an estate or have a small backyard. The plant material is low maintenance and appropriate for the East End. For sheer delight there are sculptures around every corner, many of which beckon you to enter and join the landscape. There are many forms of fencing, small structures and an arbor which could be adapted by the home gardener. The fence used to block a work area is made of long sticks leaning toward each other and intersecting, like a barricade. The presentation is a piece of functional sculpture. Another structure is the rose arbor, constructed of three twisted pieces of rebar for each half hoop section and three bamboo poles over the top to provide more support for climbing roses. This is a DIY idea easily adapted by the backyard gardener. Near the house are five small gardens about 12’ x 12’ in size, and each one shows a different possibility for a small yard. One garden is made intriguing by the texture and color variety of plants of gray and green, lavender, vinca, autumn sedum and tiny spring bulbs. In other gardens you will experience pathways

made of tree rounds and dark gravel to match. This is contrasted with meadows of daffodils playing against pine, rounded evergreens, and deciduous trees. In my short visit I missed many pieces of sculpture and plantings. I intend to return this month when the perennials are blooming. Friends of mine are having their wedding in this beautiful venue. The plantings are designed to bloom and produce a photogenic back drop throughout the growing season. If you want to give a grand party, want to gather ideas for your new garden, or just wish to spend a day being refreshed, visit The LongHouse Reserve.

North Fork Art Scene: Alex Ferrone Gallery By marion wolberg-weiss

Like the South Fork art scene, galleries on the North Fork have come and gone. Even so, it’s still exciting to visit new venues, especially those that show a lot of promise. The Alex Ferrone Gallery in Cutchogue is a good example, especially since it’s the only photography gallery on the North Fork. It also distinguishes itself because of the work on display: images of aerial scenes by Ferrone herself who has a special talent taking pictures of real estate from the air.  But make no mistake about it. The pictures in this exhibit are fine art to be sure, presenting striking images that stop viewers in their tracks. What’s more, Ferrone notes that none of the photos are digitally produced. This is perhaps their most notable quality because we are so used to seeing unusual images created by digital technology. There are certainly other traits to be admired, however, including the fluid nature of the images. (The pieces themselves are arranged in a flowing pattern adding to the idea of changing relationships.) This fluidity also contributes to the painterly and textured look of the photographs. That Ferrone is a “purist” leads to another important aspect of her work. Because no pictures are manipulated, the subject matter is real, proving once again that abstractions of nature, not technology, evoke the most extraordinary imagery. And since the images are seen from the air, conveying a bird’seye perspective, we experience these images in

Photographs by Alex Ferrone

extraordinary ways. For example, the water creates designs alongside the stone jetty in “Formation One.” It’s a pretty picture, but the details of the environment are what make it noteworthy. And again, it’s the fluidity which creates the impression that the jetty is moving in space. The same is true of “All Blues,” a shot that contrasts the blue water with a white sandbar, complete with small birds flying across the horizon. The beauty lies in the details as well. Canoes placed in a row on Georgica Beach also enhance both the details and contrast between man-made boats and the natural water. The flowing quality derives from the viewer as she/he scans the canoes. Ferrone applies her details, naturalism and fluidity to other landscapes besides water. Consider her shots of vineyards recalling weavings with contrasting fabrics. Again, our eyes scan the setting, picking out

the tiny vines hanging in a row. Symmetry is at work here which becomes an outstanding compositional element. Fields with red flowers and twig patterns also evoke noteworthy compositions. Moreover, there are Ferrone’s visuals that we’d swear are close-ups of natural formations rather than aerial shots. Some images resemble dunes, others cliffs. Yet we conclude they are shot from the air, still providing a special viewing experience. One particular image appears to be a metaphor, according to Ferrone, featuring a shape that looks like a woman with flowing hair. This is fluidity at its best. 

Paolo who gets involved with beautiful, seductive, blood-sucking Djuna—yes, she’s a vampire. Now, we all know that relations between vampires and nonvampires tend to cause a lot of upset, so you better tie yourself down to whatever chair you’re sitting on: Kiss of the Damned is going to be a rough, bloody ride.

Movies... Hot Flicks This Week Greetings From Tim Buckley Singer-songwriter Tim Buckley died very young from a drug overdose. Never quite a big name in the music business, Buckley nevertheless left a legacy of admired recordings that featured his beautiful voice and personal songs. He also left behind a son named Jeff Buckley. In the mid 90’s, the younger Buckley, whose voice closely resembled his father’s, developed a promising musical career that also was cut tragically short—he accidentally drowned in the Mississippi River. Greetings From Tim Buckley features Penn Badgley as the doomed Jeff Buckley in 1991, just getting his feet wet in the musical world and struggling with the legacy of a father he never really knew. His experiences are intercut with scenes of his father’s own formative days in the mid-60s. Kiss of the Damned Bone-chilling title, spine-tingling premise. Kiss of the Damned is about a handsome screenwriter named

Love Is All You Need The presence of Pierce Brosnan notwithstanding, Love Is All You Need shows signs of problems from the get go, for the simple fact that movies that take their titles from Beatles lyrics have a very spotty track record. Across The Universe? Embarrassing I Wanna Hold Your Hand? Infantile. The Beatles’ own Magical Mystery Tour? Depressingly bad. The notorious stinker Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band? Please! Only A Hard Days Night and Yellow Submarine truly escaped the curse. The filmmakers would appear to be tempting fate by adding their film to this troubled listing, but perhaps they just hope to snag the aging baby-boomer moviegoers with a subliminal message. Desperate Acts of Magic Don Tarzia (John Getz) gets fired from his job—his boss prefers to call it a “fire-tunity”—and he returns to his deferred dream of becoming a professional magician. With a short time to put together an act for a national contest, he turns to a skilled magician, the beautiful but sinister Stacy Dietz (Valerie Dillman), for help. If Don suffers from a shortage of skill and lack of practice, Stacy suffers because the world of professional magic is a boys’ club; maybe they can help each other. Desperate Acts of Magic features a cast of real magicians doing all manner of tricks without the benefit of special effects.

Family Fun at East End Road Races


here are few ways better to foster fitness for the whole family than by participating in an area race together. Running—even casual fun runs—builds character. Case in point: a friend who’s mom made her run around the block every time she wanted to watch TV. She’s now an overachieving med school student. Kids and running seem synonymous, but experts don’t recommend full 5Ks if you’re under 8 years old. However, some races offer kids’ fun runs for younger members of the family, and many allow stroller runners to participate. It seems like there’s a road race out here every weekend, providing ample opportunities to jumpstart healthy family traditions and bask in the glow of runner’s high together. And, no pressure: Most do not require that you run the entire way, so walking is allowed. It’s not how you finish, it’s that you finish. Let the races begin! HAMPTON BAYS 5K 5/18, 9 a.m. Race to benefit the Hampton Bays Track and Field Program. Benefits St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital & March of Dimes.

Playing Online Games for a Cause


e’ve all spent time playing videogames online. Stuff like poker, BookWorm, Zuma and other popular titles have eaten into our daily lives more than we’d all like to admit. Whether your portal to casual, online gaming is Facebook, television, tablet or phone, casual games are everywhere thanks to the explosion caused by smash hits Angry Birds and Cut The Rope. How about turning those hours spent playing online games into money for your favorite charity? Goodsearch, an online search engine powered by Yahoo, recently partnered with Arkadium, an online games portal to bring a new way to generate revenue for local charities. Goodgames features an array of fun titles to choose from, each from a particular genre. For the card shark, there’s Klondike Solitaire, for the puzzle fanatic, Jigsaw. Personally, I enjoyed Monkey Gems, which was a cross between Bejeweled and Hexic HD, with an adorable monkey named Benben. Yeah, I have a soft spot for monkeys. Don’t judge me. “Our company started about six years ago by a brother and sister team whose mother passed away from cancer. They wanted to find a way to give back, so, they saw all the money that was being made by web searches through Google and Yahoo and they created Goodsearch,” said Scott Garell, CEO of Goodsearch. “Every time you search the web, a penny goes back to your favorite charity or school.” Once I signed up on the Goodsearch website (linking my Facebook account), I went about choosing a local charity that was in tune with my own beliefs. Clicking on the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons, I began searching and playing some games, watching as my ticker went up, a penny at a

time. As someone who always looks to give back one way or another, it’s really comforting to know that something as simple as searching the web or playing a fun online game is a way that a charity or school of my choosing can benefit. “We like to call our service ‘Google With A Heart.’ A few years back we launched Goodshop To-Go, which is exactly what it sounds like, shopping through different online entities like Amazon, where up to 20% of your purchase goes to your chosen charity,” Garell said. “We have deals with Apple, Best Buy, 1-800-Flowers, so, major retailers,” Garell said. As someone Play games and donate to charity with Goodsearch! who spends entirely too much money shopping online, I plan to make use of the Amazon- When you do a little math, that’s about 50 million related coupon the next time I order something. hours a day. That’s a huge number. We looked at that Really, it makes sense. As a shopper online, or as and worked with our partner, Arkadium, who has the someone who uses a web search provider to seek largest casual game library in the world and every information, why wouldn’t anyone want to give back three games you play, a penny gets donated to your to their favorite cause while looking for cat videos school or charity. If all 50 million hours of online play switched over to Goodgames, we’d do about $1 to watch? In between playing games of Sparks, an addicting, billion for charity,” Garell said. Lofty numbers, for candy-colored Tetris/Super Puzzle Fighter clone, I sure, but attainable through word of mouth and a found myself earning pennies here and there just by positive user experience, which is exactly what I’ve doing everyday web searches. “In addition to using had thus far. “Our mission is to empower everyone to save the our offers on Goodshop, we also offer coupons, too. For instance, I just bought my sister flowers for her world through simple, daily actions,” Garell said. birthday last night. I used one of our coupons to save Goodsearch and its various ways to raise money are some money, while also giving to the ASPCA. It’s a certainly a step in the right direction. Considering we win-win, really,” Garell explained, showcasing the all live in a hectic, time-consuming world, doing the little things in abundance truly could result in a great different aspects of the site while we chatted. “113 million Americans play casual online games. deal for a charity that desperately needs money.

Tips for Bringing Your Pet Along on Vacation By colleen peterson


f your kid is heading to camp, a summer vacation can be crucial to getting in some quality family bonding time. But for dog owners, the worst part about taking a trip is the time away from our best friends. Instead of leaving your four-legged family members at home, why not travel with them? Taking pets on vacation, even for the weekend, can be a fun and rewarding experience. But there’s much to consider when planning a trip together. First, choose a destination that is both dog-friendly and interesting to you. Websites like can help find accommodations for you and your dog. Most of these hotels charge some kind of fee for your dog to stay, but many also offer special activities like a daily “Yappy Hour” for dogs to socialize, as well as dog-sitting or daycare services. Amenities like this

vary from place to place, so it’s good to check ahead and see what’s available. Consider what your dog is capable of when planning and packing for a trip. Sightseeing outdoors or exploring a new city can be perfect activities with your dog, but some breeds will handle walking longer distances better than others, especially in colder weather. It’s also a good idea to make sure your dog doesn’t get car sick before taking a long drive. Try getting him or her used to the car with shorter rides first, and never feed before driving. A good car seat will improve your dog’s comfort on the road. The “Lookout” seat by Snoozer, for example, is tall enough to allow your dog to see out the window, which will reduce motion sickness. Adding a harness by a company like Rough Riders will keep Fido secure in his seat and safe in the

event of an accident or hard stop. Make sure to plan breaks while driving and allow your dog to stretch his legs and take care of “business.” If during your travels you want to go places where your dog definitely can’t, find a local sitter or doggie daycare to watch her. Bring a copy of your vet records for easy entry into a boarding facility, and spend some time researching the best places in the area before you go. Try to find a local person willing to watch dogs in their home. Never, under any circumstances, leave your dog in the car while visiting a museum or restaurant, even in the shade with windows down. Heat exhaustion is among the most common reasons for emergency vet visits and a windshield acts as a magnifying glass for the sun, even in the winter. Dogs have a higher body temperature than humans, so they overheat much more easily. When dining, use outdoor seating and keep your pooch at your feet. Accidents can happen no matter how careful you are, so plug local vet info into your GPS in case of an emergency. If your dog has a tendency to run off or escape, provides a GPS system that will track him or her in real time and text you the location so your dog never gets lost. And when you go out, always bring fresh water, a collapsible or portable bowl, wet wipes and a supply of bags to pick up any waste. Responsible owners clean up after their dogs. Don’t be part of the problem, even if you’re out of town. Having a dog in public places and beaches is a privilege, not a right. Ideally, you’ll want to find a good balance between walking and driving, so as not to overexert your dog. If that’s not possible, especially for smaller breeds, a dog stroller can make a big difference for long walks. It sounds ridiculous, but once you’ve used one, you won’t find them as stupid. Dog strollers allow your pup to lie down, keep warm and relax while you walk around, and they usually have fold-down canopies so no one can see inside. Just don’t be surprised if people look in and scream because they’re expecting a baby! Some strollers even convert to be pulled behind a bike. Being prepared makes all the difference when taking our pets on the road. And remember, above anything else: For our dogs, it’s not important where you go—it’s going with you that matters.

ay couldn’t have come soon enough. The beautiful weather is finally here. You know what that means; a lot of families are going to be on their boats and seeing what they can catch. Maybe you don’t have a boat, that’s fine too. The canal in Hampton Bays is a great spot to test your luck. I recently talked with Captain Scott Jeffery, owner of East End Bait and Tackle in Hampton Bays and with Jim Coronesi, the owner of Cor-J Seafood Corp in Hampton Bays to see what tips they could offer on where to fish and what to use to catch a big one. First I asked Jeffery what is the most popular type of fish people would be angling for this summer. He noted, “Most target striped bass, bluefish and false albacore but some do target fluke in the shallow bay flats.” The false albacore isn’t to be mistaken for the

The joys of fishing

yellow fin or blue fin tuna. The false albacore is a lot smaller than the other two. Next we discussed fly-fishing. He gave a lot of good information on this style of fishing. Not as many people use this as a way of fishing but it can be very successful if done properly with the right gear. “The nine weight is the most common size fly rod, along with a matching reel. St. Croix rods made in the States are a good start. Most common flies used around here are deceivers, clousers and some epoxy flies. Match the hatch, match the bait they are feeding on in size, shape and color as close as possible for success.” Matching the bait is crucial for any type of fishing. You need to know what the fish you are interested in are eating. The right lure is important as well. You can find the details at your local fishing store or online. Now, where to get those fish. Jeffery advised, “The East End is full of areas to target the above species. It’s best in the shallow flats on calm days when you can site fish. These areas can be reached by both boat and on foot from the shoreline.” This is very good advice for the person who doesn’t have a boat of their own to get around in. Now for some tips from Coronesi. “For the person who doesn’t want to have to look around for a good spot to fish, I’d recommend the charter boats out on the East End.” The charter boats go out on a daily basis and supply you with the bait, rods and everything else needed in order to have a good time and catch a lot of fish. The charters are run by professional fishermen who know all the great spots around the island. One popular charter is the Shinnecock Star. They are available for parties and functions with up to 24

people and provide everyone’s own rod, reel, bait and tackle. They have certain deals and discounts during the year which you can check out on their website.

Where to find the bargains this weekend.

For you, family and friends

Adventures In East End Shopping After what has truly felt like six months of winter, East Enders were more than ready this past weekend to get out and hit the town. With sunny skies and temperatures nearing 60, I awoke Saturday morning ready to cruise around and scope out the scene. Southampton shoppers, and now East Hamptonites too, will be especially excited to hear that C. Wonder is back with a bang. Haven’t you been? C. Wonder is a prepster’s delight. Bright, bold colors, clean lines and classic styles make up the cheerful shop. Most wonderful of all are the prices; guaranteed to not burn a hole in your wallet! C. Wonder Southampton is at 5 Main Street; and 48 Main Street in East Hampton. Good shoppers know part of the strategy is to follow your grandfather’s advice, “don’t spend it all in one place.” You certainly get further; and since we are trekking from Southampton to Amagansett, today I’m all about finding some steals. My next stop is Sandcastle Kids to pick up a little birthday gift for a toddler. This friendly neighborhood kids’ clothing store has adorable outfits for a wide range of ages, sizes and styles. Since Hamptons kids are likely to be running around in the woods and on the beach,

The owner, a crafts artist, imports the grapevine that Polkadot, a beautiful line of material and items and then makes a lot of her own loungewear and sleepwear, has now partnered with stuff too.

Events for families kids and singles

Tick 101: Listen Up! After all of the false starts, with cold days interspersed with days of teasing warmth, it seems spring is finally here. The camellias on the side of my house are in splendid bloom and the lilac and Kwanzan cherry are in fat bud. Flowering trees sparkle across the heretofore bleak landscape. Fern fronds are emerging with firm determination and roses are showing growth, promising summer blooms. Peas are up, looking vigorous. Carrots and beets are peaking above the soil. The garden centers are bringing in the first annuals of summer and professional and home gardeners are fertilizing and mulching. Second year forms of biannual foxglove and hollyhock are up and growing in my garden. The oriental poppies are almost in bud. In addition to this entire portentous splendor, I have had the first and hopefully only, tick bite of the season! It was a deer tick and had the telltale “bulls-eye” which is a reliable indication of Lyme disease....And true to the nature of ticks, it was in a place where one certainly doesn’t want a tick!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR TRANSACTION Dear Dan, You had an interesting article about Western Union in your April 12, 2013 issue. I wonder if you know that if you have a savings account, and it is declared inactive, the banks definition is, no money in, no money out, and no interested posted, they turn the money over to the state? The bank makes no effort to contact you even though they have your address and phone number. Once the state has your money they make no effort to contact you either. They do have a web site, osc., that you can check to see if they are holding your money. It would be a good idea for all your readers to check this web site to see if you, or a friend, has some money they may have forgotten about. Have a great day. Yours truly, Harold Dornseif St. James I’m aware of it. This is a transaction though. Also they Fight to keep you from learning if it was completed —DR GUNS KILL Dear Dan, So disgusted with the cowardly behavior of some of our Senators bowing down to NRA and their lobbyists while more than 91% of Americans are in favor of universal background checks; a no brainer.

Yet 46 of our Senators voted against it…voted against the wishes of the people. The ratio of 54 pro to 46 con would suggest the majority of Senators wanted the background checks as certainly does the ratio of 91% to 9% of Americans. So what could go wrong? Ask the NRA and their puppet Senators. So disgusted, Nick Pappas East Hampton I agree with this. —DR LOCAL PESTICIDES Dear Stacy, Last week as I made my way to the Breast Center at Southampton Hospital, in order not to walk in the street, I stepped on the grass. After a few yards I saw that there were those little “warning pesticides” signs all over. Pesticides at the hospital? Really, in the 21st century? Don’t medical professionals know better by now? Olivia Krensch Southampton It could be that certain pesticide use is mandated. We’ll talk to hospital administrators, they’re good listeners. —SD PETER THE GREAT Dear Stacy, I can’t thank you enough for your portrayal of Peter

Garnham, Renaissance Man (Written by Joan Baum in April 26, 2013 issue)! He is an inspiration! He differs from most people who have dreams, in that he also has the drive and the vision to make his dreams come true, to the benefit of countless others. It’s mind boggling to read about all he has accomplished, not only for himself, but for whatever community he finds himself in. Organic gardening, food pantry, giving kids something to do (with Kids Night at Moon), getting his Master Gardener Certificate, writing and editing nonfiction children’s books, writing an article about colony collapse disorder, making use of a composting facility, these are all my passions as well, and I haven’t gotten a good start on any of them.  Since reading your article, Peter Garnham makes me want to be a better person, and find the time in my schedule to make some progress and accomplish more than just daydreaming about these things. We can all be better people. We can all be more community minded. We all need to look around us and see what needs to be done, and just do it! Sincerely, A grateful reader, Christiane Schmohl, Manorville When I first met Peter at a lecture he was giving, I knew he was really something. But I had no idea how many “somethings!” —SD Email your letters to

A Brief History of Grilling, Barbecuing & BBQ By wallace figg


ay is National Barbecue Month, and if the growing presence of top-flight grilled fare on the East End is any indication, it should come as no surprise that the convalescence of food and fire has inspired not only a national culinary celebration, but one worthy of an entire 30 days. Yes, there is sure to be some debate over semantics when it comes to trying separate “barbecue” from “grilling” from “BBQ,” but really, when it all tastes so good, what are we arguing about? Instead, let’s come together around the fire to honor our collective love of all things charred as we offer a (mostly) true account of grilling milestones through the ages. 1 million BC: Man discovers fire. 999,999 and 59 seconds BC: Man puts meat over fire. Raw-food movement put on hold for next 1,002,000 years. 1492: Columbus discovers America, or at least runs into the Caribbean, where he makes an even more important discovery—the Taino people grilling game and fish over coals, using a wooden structure whose name sounds like “barbacoa” to the explorers. 1706: Edward Ward publishes “The Barbacue Feast: or, the three pigs of Peckham, broil’d under an apple-tree” in London. Centuries before Kitchen Confidential, the account of a night in Jamaica filled with rum, an open fire, a porcine trio, and the crowd that gathered to watch the feast unfold from start to finish remains the foundation of grilling literature. Yes, there is such a thing as grilling literature.

1793: George Washington lays cornerstone of U.S. Capitol, then follows with a celebration whose centerpiece is a tribute-to-thegrilling-gods 500-pound ox. July 4 cookouts have been trying to live up to that one ever since. 1920: Henry Ford takes waste wood from his automobile production facilities and finds a method to turn it into charcoal briquettes. Ford’s brother-in-law E.G. Kingsford selects a site to mass manufacture the briquettes and winds up with his name on one of America’s most famous backyard-barbecue-related businesses. 1952: Sick and tired of ashes blowing around his yard, George Stephen finds inspiration in the shape of the harbor buoys made by the Weber Bros. Metal Spinning Company, cuts one in half, adds a grate and joins the ranks of Da Vinci, Franklin and Edison when the first Weber grill is released to the public. 1970s: “Kiss the Cook” aprons become staples of the Father’s Day gift catalogue. Grilling couture set back at least 100 years. 1980: When Robert De Niro unleashes rage over an overcooked steak in Raging Bull, the importance of perfectly cooked meat transcends the kitchen and enters American pop culture. Two years later, Rocky Balboa will reintroduce the art of hand-tenderizing. 2008: More than 30,000 people consume more than 61,000 pounds of meat cooked over open fires covering an area larger than a football field in


Paraguay, setting the Guinness Book of World Records mark for Largest Barbecue in the World. The event will stand as the greatest grilling event ever, until… July 12, 2013: An all-star lineup of grill masters from Long Island’s North Fork and South Fork—including Robby Beaver of The Frisky Oyster, Noah Schwartz of Noah’s, Main Restaurant & Oyster Bar’s Keith Luce, Billy Oliva of Delmonico’s of Southampton, Bryan Futerman of Foody’s, Emanouil Aslanoglou of Old Stove Pub, Colin Ambrose of Estia’s Little Kitchen, Bay Burger’s Joe Tremblay, Victor Tapia of the Palm, and David Hersh of Cowfish and Rumba—take on a team of New York City luminaries—including Commerce’s Harold Moore, Joey Campanaro of The Little Owl, Stanton Social’s Chris Santos, Paul Denamiel of Le Rivage, Niles Noren of Red Rooster, Sam Hazen of Veritas, and Elizabeth Karmel of Hill Country BBQ—in the first annual Blue Moon GrillHampton presented by Pat LaFrieda competition. With crowds cheering the chefs on and chowing down, who will be crowned “Master Grill Chef” that night in Bridgehampton? History awaits… GrillHampton kicks off a food-filled Dan’s Taste of Two Forks weekend on Friday, July 12, at Sayre Park in Bridgehampton. For tickets and info, visit

A Crowd-Pleaser from “Girls Night Out” By silvia lehrer

Dr. Paula Angelone, a New York City and Southampton resident initiated “girls night out” some months ago with emails flying back and forth until the big night came along in mid-April. Eight friends who came together through food over the years giddily attended with their potluck offerings. Maybe not so “potluck,” as Paula, an extremely organized person, somehow managed to balance the menu with delectable preparations, from appetizer through dessert, from this food-obsessed group. Bubbly Prosecco with an additional selection of wines compliments of Paula, were enjoyed through the evening in a handsome setting. We were all intrigued with Maureen Villantes’ roasted pepper appetizer—thinly sliced peppers and onion arranged on a platter with mozzarella slices and crostini for guests to arrange on their own, and they were delighted to do so. A good idea, I thought, it makes it easy on the hosts. When I tested Maureen’s recipe at home I was delighted with the ease of not having to peel and seed whole peppers. When I asked Maureen her inspiration for the dish she shied away from taking any credit, “Just handed down,” she said. Wherever they came from, they came from, and I’m glad they surfaced. ROAST PEPPERS AND ONIONS This basic roast pepper and onion recipe is a terrific base for a variety of dishes. Yield: about 1 1/2 cups. Basic roast pepper and onion recipe 2 large sweet red peppers 1/2 Spanish or Bermuda onion 4 extra-virgin olive oil, divided 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1 tablespoon local sea salt 2 to 3 sprigs fresh rosemary

over the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil; add the rosemary sprigs and tumble the ingredients to mix. Spread them evenly in the pan. Place pan in preheated oven and bake for 40 minutes. Remove tray from oven and add the onions. Toss onions to mix with the peppers and seasoning. Bake an additional 35 minutes until peppers are tender and lightly charred and onions are crisp. Can be prepared ahead to this point and refrigerated in a suitable container. Bring to room temperature when ready to serve. ROAST PEPPER AND ONION Sweet red peppers make this dish WITH MOZZARELLA ON CROSTINI Maureen Villante made quite a hit with this 1. Spread bread slices on a cookie sheet one layer captivating appetizer. deep. Broil 4 inches from source of heat until golden Serves 8 to 10 brown, about 1 minute on each side. Remove from oven and while the toast is warm, rub the cut surface Basic roast pepper and onion recipe 1 container fresh mozzarella, drained, thinly sliced of garlic over one side then drizzle over a bit of oil. Can be prepared ahead and stored in a wax paper and halved lined tin. 2. When ready to serve, top each crostini with Crostini mozzarella and peppers, arrange on an attractive French baguette, cut into 1/4 inch slices platter and serve. 3 cloves garlic, unpeeled and halved lengthwise Extra virgin olive oil Visit Silvia’s website at to read her blogs and more recipes.

It’s important to keep in mind the 1st quarter of closed sales reflects the business—or deals—of the prior quarter due to the time lapse between making a deal and sitting down to the closing, then having the closing documents recorded Shelter Island, statistically, had the greatest percent ascent in both the Number of Home Sales and Total Home Sales Volume, at 50% and 118% respectively. That is simply statistical, since the Number of Home Sales rose from 6 to 9 and the Total Homes Sale Volume from $3.14M to $6.85M—not a lot of data to analyze. One of the brightest spots for activity was Bridgehampton (which includes Water Mill and Sagaponack) where there was $98.7 million Total Home Sales Volume and a 40% increase in home sales in the $5 million to $9.99 million range. Those seven sales in 1st Quarter 2013 account for all the sales in that price range for all Hamptons markets combined. Montauk had an increase of 41% in the Number of Home Sales from 17 to 24 . Southampton Village experienced the greatest pullback, a 73% drop in the Number of Home Sales from 15 to 4 and a dramatic 86% loss in Total Home Sales Volume from $49 million to $7 million. According to Judi A. Desiderio, CEO of Town and Country Real Estate, “In my professional opinion, this is simply a blip on the radar screen. Southampton Village has always been one of the East End’s crown jewels. In fact, looking at the Median Home Sales Price, Southampton Village more than doubled from $800K in 2012 to $1.625M in 2013, although still far off from its high water mark, but Southampton Village is coming back.” Desiderio also stressed that all eight Town and Country offices and associates are busier than they have ever been in the last six years and that these appointments will result in sales. Busy bees in real estate means that more sales are on their way for the next couple of quarters, and as we head into the summer season, Hamptons real estate is certainly looking like the place to be.
