Honoring the Artist: Frank Latorre This week’s cover artist, Frank Latorre, might be described as a “Renaissance Man.” Although he’d probably deny this characterization, it’s apparent from Latorre’s many activities that he cares about improving the cultural life of his community. Known as a muralist, musician, gallery owner and butterfly lover, Latorre’s energy and enthusiasm make him a definite optimist in this age of pessimism. Q: The cover is intriguing and somewhat different from a lot of our covers. What was your purpose in painting it? A: It’s from my “Pretty Woman” series. I combine abstraction and portraiture to capture the sensuality of women. The cover is an explosion of color and movement. When you put eyes in a painting, they tend to be the focal point. The work is a visual exercise in balance as the viewer’s eye goes across the whole canvas. Q: What series are you working on now? A: I’m working on ocean beaches, specifically south shore beaches. My favorite is in Westhampton Beach off Dune Road. Q: Yet you are known for your murals. A: I’m a wall muralist, doing surreal, trompe l’oeil pieces. Q: There’s the concept of the “eye” again. Describe one of these murals. A: I do private homes, like painting a window on a bedroom wall, making the room look like Tuscany. Q: What other series have you done? A: A series on butterflies. People send me photographs of butterflies from all over the world. I also collect butterflies. They are like fingerprints; each one is different. Q: What is your favorite kind?
A: The Monarch. It’s the only one in the world that migrates. They go to Mexico; some come back, some don’t. Do you know you can go to the Natural History Museum in New York where there’s a little room like a rain forest? Butterflies are flying around. If you wear red, they will land on you. Q: You own a gallery, Art & Soul, in Eastport. How is that going? A: I was the portrait artist in the gallery when it opened three years ago, but I bought the gallery a few months ago. I have an open call to artists who are judged by a different person each month; we have a reception the first Sunday of each month for these artists. Q: You are also known as a musician and part of the group, the King Bees. A: Yes, we were picked to participate in the Memphis Blues Challenge. It’s an international event with 120 bands from all over the world. We also play at the Riverhead Blues Festival. Q: I saw a video clip of you and the King Bees at last year’s Festival. It was really enjoyable. It’s interesting to me how you combine music and art. A: Yes, when I play at The Luncheonette in Eastport, I give a gallery tour of Art & Soul during the break. Q: It’s obvious that you care about culture. A: I will do anything to keep culture going. –Marion Wolberg Weiss Frank Latorre’s work can be seen at Art & Soul Gallery at 495 A Montauk Highway, Eastport. 631-325-1504. The King Bees will be playing at Brookhaven Lab, Berkner Hall, on May 8. Contact Ticket Web for tickets.

Rent-a-Protester Send 3 Porgies to the Fulton Fish Market. Save the Baymen. By Dan Rattiner There was a time years ago when people would protest at the drop of a hat. I remember those days. We opposed building a nuclear plant at Shoreham, Long Island. We got out our signs, hopped in a school bus and, by the hundreds, marched back and forth in front of the construction workers, even going so far as to scale the chain link fence. Ultimately, we were dragged down, arrested and taken to the Shoreham Police Station in yellow school busses to be fingerprinted and slapped with summonses. Eventually we’d be released, and the charges dropped. We’d demonstrate against the War in Vietnam, we’d demonstrate against people roping off the beaches. One year, when I found out that nothing was being done to save the Montauk Lighthouse from erosion, we organized a demonstration at the Lighthouse. Two thousand people came. The propensity to demonstrate or march back then was so great that one Presidential administration actually felt that we were destabilizing the country and near to bringing in a reign of chaos. We were as amazed at that idea as they were. Today practically nobody is ready to get up off their butt and go out and demonstrate for or against anything. Even the announced closing of our local college, which might have brought thousands of people out into the street in protest in years gone by, and resulted in the takeover of an administration building or two, just brought out a few hundred peaceable people. I don’t know what it is. We live in different times. Maybe it’s Twitter or video games. Maybe it’s our Homepages or Facebooks. We can
express ourselves freely now where before we could not. As for making a difference, we really, frankly, just don’t feel like it. We’ve got a global economy. There are so many voices. And the only people who really do seem to make a difference are the superheroes we see on our TV screens. They fall from the roofs of 20 story buildings, splat on the sidewalk and then get up and run off to fight another day. And even they have to get through a whole season of episodes or an entire two hour movie to even make a
community. They worked the seas, dropping lobster pots, clamming in the tidal waters, haul seining fish catches with big nets they threw into the surf, and otherwise making a living and raising their families with the bounty they got from the seas. There were thousands of them. They lived in scattered communities throughout the area, in East Quogue, Flanders, Hampton Bays, North Sea, Springs and Amagansett. Many of them referred to themselves as Bonackers. They lived in clans and spoke English with a sharp, very identifiable accent. There were, during those days, as many as 1,500 Bonackers—people whose forebears went back to the Colonial Times and who came to America as the workers for the rich upper class Englishmen who became the leaders of this community back then. The Bonackers and the other baymen and other commercial fishermen are now reduced to just a few hundred men and women. The reason is the 1976 Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. This group of laws severely limited the number of fish and shellfish that could be caught by commercial fishermen here. Government boats would go out and make catches of fish and note which fish were getting fished out. The catching of these fish was then severely limited or prohibited. The fishermen could no longer make a living. At one point, the government made it illegal to catch fish by haul seining along our beaches. This activity involved a big pickup truck with a giant rolled-up net that could be played out the back, a huge rowboat that could take the other end of the net out through the surf, and a bunch
If you want to make a ruckus, get arrested, get put in jail and let go, well, this is your chance. dent. Honestly, we’d just rather sit here and search the web. And so it is that this past week, there is a group of unhappy people that is seeking volunteers to go out and demonstrate against something. They can’t do it all themselves, and there is a reason for it as you will soon see. But if you want to make a ruckus, get arrested, get fingerprinted and put in jail for a bit, pay a fine, then get let go and eventually have the charges dropped and the monies returned, well, this is your chance. The group is the East Hampton Baymen’s Association and boy have they been going through a bad time. When I got here in the 1950s, the baymen and commercial fishermen were a big force in this

Banned Fairytales Hansel & Gretel, The Fox, Uncle Remus & Song of the South By Dan Rattiner During my time on this planet, I have made it my business to go with my children on every single ride offered both at Disney World and at Universal Studios down in Orlando. I’ve been up close and personal with Mickey Mouse, the Pirates of the Caribbean, Donald Duck, Goofy, ET, Cinderella and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. I started my quest when my first child was one and a half, which was in the fall of 1972. At the request of my children, who said they couldn’t take it anymore, I stopped going to Disney World in 1996. At that point, my youngest was 14. But I felt I had succeeded in my quest. But then, yesterday, just walking the dog out on the beach in Sagaponack, a thought popped into my head—I’ve never seen the Three Little Pigs down there. And I’ve never been on a ride that traces the story of Hansel and Gretel. They are just not there.
I think I know why this is. As a matter of fact, I think I know why you never even see the Big Bad Wolf down there, even though there are lots of fairytales about him. He figures prominently in Peter and the Wolf. He’s in Little Red Riding Hood. Come to think of it, he’s in The Three Little Pigs. The more I thought about it, though, the more I realized just how hard it would be for some Disney person to come up with a ride about any of these characters. Consider Hansel and Gretel. The early part might pass muster. Hansel and Gretel have an evil stepmother who sends her husband out into the woods with the two children to just “leave them out there.” The kids leave a trail of breadcrumbs as they head out, sort of figuring what this is all about. They’ll get back. Dad goes with them, sorrowfully, and then leaves them off alone. Now the kids see this wonderful candy
cane and gingerbread house which they decide to go into, before following the breadcrumbs, and it is in there that it gets kind of dicey. “Okay,” the marketing man says. “So the wicked witch in the candy cane house ties them up and we come to the part where she is going to stick them in the oven.” “No, no, no,” the powers that be say. But you can’t mess with a fairytale. So there will be no ride about Hansel and Gretel. By the way, in case you don’t know how it ends, what happens is, the wicked witch decides to fatten the children up before doing them in. She stuffs them with candy. Then they are too fat to fit in the oven. Boy is the witch pissed. Then what happens is that Gretel sneaks up behind the witch and shoves HER into the oven. She burns to a crisp. After that, the kids run off and (continued on page 28)
FORMER MAYOR OF QUOGUE GOES TO PRISON By Dan Rattiner Former Mayor George Motz of the Village of Quogue, 68, was sentenced to serve eight years in prison last week. A supposedly respected money manager, he had been accused of bilking $2.4 million from his clients during a five year period between 2000 and 2005 by using a simple cherry picking scheme. He’d make his stock trades during the day and then at the end of the day, doctor the records of his transactions so the best ones that produced the most profit got assigned to his own personal account, while the not so good ones were assigned to his clients. Motz was the Mayor of Quogue during most of the years he was performing this scheme at his office in New York City (he was Mayor from 2002 to 2009) and his attorney, G. Robert Gage, Jr. argued vigorously after the sentencing for three hours in the morning and then for another hour
in the afternoon, that Motz’s good works as mayor should be taken into consideration when considering his punishment. He could have been sentenced for up to 14 years. His sentencing was for eight years. Gage argued that it should be less. Motz’s wife Kittric, in the courtroom, looked stricken over the matter, but the judge held firm. It did strike this reporter as odd that Motz’s service as mayor would be held up as a reason to reduce his sentence. Motz, though popular among his peers, had come into office with the intention of seeing to it that those living or visiting this wealthy enclave be held to a high standard in obeying all of the laws, a standard higher than had ever been asked for before. People driving into Quogue, which has a 25 mile an hour speed limit, were routinely stopped for “speeding” or some other violation and given the highest fine possible if anything could be
found to be amiss. Justice was meted out by Kittric Motz, who her husband appointed to be the judge in that town. (She remains so to this day.) I was asked to give a speech at the Quogue Library in the summer of 2008 and was warned of this strict enforcement by those who invited me. When I drove to the outskirts of the Village, I slowed down to drive at exactly 19 miles an hour, alternately watching the road and looking at the speedometer, so as not to draw attention to myself. I signaled carefully left and right as I made my way to the library. The toe-the-line behavior required of both visitors and residents in this village was no exaggeration. The prior summer, we had in our employ in Bridgehampton at the paper a young woman who was part of this well-to-do set in (continued on page 26)

Beebee windmill in Bridgehampton, East Hampton’s windmill, and one at Stony Brook Southampton.
Windmills, for Real 120 of Them May Be Coming to an Ocean Near You By Dan Rattiner Something is happening in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Cape Cod that I think will have a profound effect on the future of Long Island. Last week, after a five-year fight, the feds finally got approval to build an enormous forest of giant steel windmills in the ocean just to the south of Cape Cod. The windmills will be 40 stories high. There will be 130 of them. They will be just 15 miles off the coast of Hyannis and the Upper Cape and 20 miles from Nantucket. They will be painted off-white but they will be quite visible to the naked eye from both the island and the mainland. And they will provide three quarters of all the electric power needed by Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod. For five years, the number of people in favor of this about equaled the number of people opposed to it. Now a court has rendered its decision.
There are some smaller lawsuits, but this seems to be something that is going to be happening— the first shovels go into the sea—before this year is out. It certainly is not Long Island’s fight. But it is not hard to see where this is going. The offshore windmills are coming. Those opposing the windmills have fallen into three broad categories. There are those who feel that they certainly favor wind power, but just not in their backyard. Perhaps the windmills could be better if put off New Jersey. The wind is even stronger over there. The second group feels that wind power is harmful to their daily life. This includes those who think it will spoil the view of the ocean. (It will, for awhile, until people get used to it. I truly believe if people can get used to telephone poles and wires they can get used to anything. When
was the last time you noticed all the telephone poles?) It includes people who have ocean-going sailboats who love to race around off Hyannis. And it includes people who say that these big windmills will kill millions of migrating birds and those who vote to do this will be destined to go to hell because of it. (But you don’t see people out roaming through wind farms in the hills of California with brooms and dustpans sweeping up dead birds). And it includes fishermen who say the windmills will scare the fish, their hum will confuse the whales and in a deep fog big boats could collide with the bases of these windmills with disastrous results to life and limb. A third group opposing the windmills are just people who are opposed to change of any kind. They are very happy just with how things are thank you very much. Don’t screw it up. (continued on page 26)
FOLIAGE CAN’T FIGURE THIS SPRING OUT By Dan Rattiner As I write this, I am in the process of fleeing hot weather—that is to say I am on my way from our apartment in the city to our house in East Hampton where, according to the App on my iPhone, the temperature this afternoon will max out at a cool 69 degrees, in Manhattan, a sizzling 92 is expected in Central Park. Why a discrepancy this wide exists I do not know. As a general rule, the Hamptons is, in the summertime, about five degrees cooler than the City. It does stick out into the ocean after all. So if you’re in the city, add five. You’ll see how it is. Also, you can predict it. As a general rule, the weather patterns move from west to east because the air in the atmosphere cannot quite keep up with the counter-clockwise rotation of the earth. The atmosphere keeps sliding off to the east, so from the ground it appears everything comes from the west.
So if you want to know what the weather will be two days from now, look up Chicago. If you want to know what tomorrow will bring, look up Pittsburgh. If you want to know what the weather will be in two hours, call a friend in New York City and ask what is going on there and it will be out east in short order, minus five. That is not what is going on along the east coast today, however. Something has sprung up over New York. It is going to sit there as blazing heat for a day. Then it may head off north or south or to the west, but it is not heading east to the Hamptons. So sez my iPhone. It truly has been a wild spring. We’ve had an earthquake of cosmic proportions in Haiti. We’ve had a volcano in Iceland that attacked Europe. We’ve had an even worse earthquake in Chile. We’ve had flooding in China and even in the Hamptons where, for the past month, ponds and bays have overflowed their banks making cer-
tain roads actually impassable. Some blame it on the confluence of the full moon and high tides. I tend to blame it on global warming. Any day now, I expect we’ll hear about another hunk of Antarctica the size of Rhode Island breaking off and floating off to melt next to New Zealand with still another rise in sea level. Or maybe it’s just that the Gods are angry. The latest disaster is the explosion, manmade I am sure, of a British Petroleum oilrig in the Gulf. It broke off the straw that was sucking oil out of the seabed. Oil is now spewing into the sea underwater and nobody can stop it. Perhaps it will spew all the oil in the world up and out and the earth will shrink into a prune. Who knows? If all this has been confusing to humans, it has not passed my notice that it has also been very (continued on page 22)

Best Stories from the First 50 Years
First published in Dan’s Papers Montauk Pioneer, Late July 1965 By Dan Rattiner [Ed. Note: In last week’s Paper, long distance swimmer Brett Sullivan was greased down and jumped into the water in Montauk to begin her swim to Manhattan. That piece ended with a reporter at the scene stating, “I hope I can get back to Manhattan by nightfall.” This installment picks up at that point. –SG] Behind him and above him, a small red flag waved in the strengthening breeze, the red flag of the Coast Guard, posted to warn of the coming storm. The storm hit in the ocean that night, a raging frightening storm of giant proportions. On the little 21-foot boat, everyone got seasick—in the water, even Sullivan, who insisted on continuing, got seasick. And the group floundered on for two days and nights in the storm. Sullivan, tossed around in the waves, got nourishment from a baby’s bottle that was filled and tossed to her periodically from the boat. She

smoked cigarettes in the familiar holder during other breaks. Recently, I spoke to Art Steiner, who trained Sullivan for the swim and who was on the little boat during the storm. “I’ve never been in a storm like that,” Art said. “The waves were 20, no, 30 feet high. We’d go up one side and down the other and we’d lose sight of Sullivan. But then she’d always come back, swimming with this hypnotic stroke of hers.” I asked Art about a report that Sullivan had spent the two nights of the storm safely aboard
the boat. The report had been in the New York Post of November 9, 1964. “It’s a lie,” Art exploded. “I was there and Sullivan spent the entire time in the water. Who said that?” (I checked with the New York Post later, but the author of the article would not reveal the source of this claim.) “Britt may have been a publicity seeker, but she was in the water swimming those two nights. She was a fanatic. We couldn’t get her out and we certainly tried. She was going to make that swim if it killed her. Because that’s the way she looked at this thing. “I remember when we were training in (continued on page 22)

Dan’s Papers is Here to Stay
By Dan Rattiner People have been calling Dan’s Papers for days to ask if Dan’s Papers is going bankrupt. Part of the fault of this has been Bloomberg, one of the first New York media outlets to take note of what is going on. Bloomberg filled its article with numerous inaccuracies in the first attempt, and all of them had to be retracted and rewritten as they began to get it partly and then finally right. They called it Take 2 and Take 3. So it depended which Take you read. Consider this Take Last. During 2007 and 2008, a company called Brown Publishing, a privately owned 80-yearold family business which owns about 50 weekly and daily newspapers in the Midwest, began buying up more newspapers in the west and the east. They were going coast to coast. You remember those times. Money flowed like water. Everybody was happy. The sky was the limit. Then everything went down the drain. One of the publications purchased by Brown at that time was Dan’s Papers, “Largest in the Hamptons,” as Bloomberg wrote in their head-
line in all three of their versions. Brown financed its expansion with large loans from a bank. The money went to the owners of the papers they bought. What was left at Brown was an assemblage of the new papers. Brown’s bankruptcy is not about shutting down and selling off the pieces. In fact, everything will be proceeding as normal. Instead, this action is about shedding much of this long-term bank loan. Though Brown (and Dan’s Papers) are profitable, they are not profitable enough to both pay back the loan and continue along with business as usual. As a result, much of the loan is now to be forgiven.
It’s taken a bit of time, but the banks have finally had to concede that something worth $20 million is now worth $10 million, it’s been nobody’s fault and something will have to be done to forgive that gap in the middle. Many large newspaper chains have quietly gone through bankruptcies in recent days. The Boston dailies went bankrupt. The Philadelphia dailies just went through a bankruptcy. Even Newsday, which was part of the Tribune Company based in Chicago, went through a bankruptcy. All those publications continue on. Nothing changes when it comes to feet on the ground. Brown, we expect, will come through this in the next few months stronger than ever. But there’s one thing we know for sure: The Biggest Paper in the Hamptons—we celebrate 50 years in business this year—will survive and thrive through these corporate machinations. When the smoke clears, here we will still be. We are at your service. We thank you for continuing to read Dan’s Papers, The Montauk Pioneer and danshamptons.com, and, where applicable, for advertising with us.

confusing to the foliage. Both in New York and in the Hamptons, the usual order of events is a cold winter, a glorious spring in April and the budding of the trees in early May to come into full leafy flower just in time for the summer people who arrive for Memorial Day Weekend. That is not what happened this year. The winter was so bitter cold in the Hamptons that the bays and harbors froze over. It was like Alaska, with temperatures around zero. Then, suddenly, in March, the temperature zoomed up into the 80s. I went to the beach. The foliage, caught unawares, decided it was summertime. They bloomed. I write this on May 1. We are ready.

Montauk in the springtime, I’d be out in the rowboat watching her swim and some of those days were cold. We’d be the only people out there. I’d be freezing just sitting in the boat and I’d say to Britt, ‘You must be crazy. How can you swim in this water. I’m freezing just watching you.’ And Britt would say ‘If you want something bad enough, you go get it.’ Britt wanted fame and fortune and nothing would stop her.” Still there was a stop in the trip. Three days out of Montauk on July 3, a plague of sea lice attacked Sullivan and the ship, and they had no choice but to take refuge at Southampton. But they were out again quickly, in a matter of hours, continuing the long hard swim toward Manhattan. On July 6, Sullivan was off the coast of Long Beach, six sleepless days and 100 miles from her entry point at Montauk. She was only two days out of New York and already she had gone almost three times as far as anyone had ever done before. But she was caught in a flow tide, and she had to swim hard just to hold her own. If she could hold her own and wait out this tide, with the next ebb tide she would be swept along with tremendous momentum to the city limits of New York. It was the last great challenge, and if Sullivan could overcome it, she would almost certainly finish the swim without further difficulty. A reporter from Newsday was on the boat when it happened. One minute, Sullivan was moving in her hypnotic crawl stroke, the next she had stopped, face down in the water, dead still. Sullivan had fallen unconscious. The men on the boat yelled at her but she wouldn’t stir. She was drowning. They dove in the water a pulled her out in time. It was all over.

To the whale that landed on our shores? Or to those in search of answers—or questions? –S.G.
The Sheltered Islander Notes for Boats #2 I got many responses to last weeks Rules for Boating. Here are some of the funniest. From Bob P: You can’t do anything for seasick people. Find them a place to hang their head over the side, towards the back of the boat preferably. Give them something to sit on. Remove all sharp objects from view, because if they have a chance to kill themselves, they will. Wish them luck and return to your party. From Peggy G: “Beware of Flying Tarantula’s!” In 1964, Peggy was a young gal from New Mexico, going boating on the Atlantic for the first time. She thought it would be like the calm lake boating in New Mexico. She paid for a terrific beehive hairdo ($40 bucks was a lot back then), which included a “switch,” an extra hairpiece for volume and height. She sprayed her beehive using half a can of hairspray, confident that her hairdo would last the day. But, Peggy was going boating off Martha’s Vineyard in a Boston Whaler. Whalers go very fast and in five minutes after take off, her whole cone shaped beehive had shifted to the back of her head, making her look like a cartoon character who was zooming by. As she struggled with her hairdo, the sea spray and wind speed of the boat tore off her switch and the sticky, hairsprayladen, brown hairpiece landed on the face of her boyfriend who was sitting behind her. He screamed and said he felt like he’d be hit with a flying tarantula. Another male member of their party said he looked like he’d been hit by something else that ordinarily doesn’t fly, but Dan’s is

a PG-13 magazine so you’ll have to use your imagination. From Joe McF: Don’t let seasick people try to jump for the dock as you come in. They are desperate to get to any stable surface, but they suddenly think they can jump eight feet when they see the dock. When they fall in, only let one person go in after them. Three is too many and if they’ve been drinking, you have to remind them to let you cut the engine, and hence the whirling propeller, before they try to climb up on the back of the boat. From Jackie V: Jackie is a nurse and while boating with friends, she tripped and got an inch-long gash above one eyebrow. The pilot was an MD and had his doctor bag in with the First Aid kit. He had a little suture set and stitched her up. He said he hoped it would look all right, he didn’t ordinarily stitch women’s faces. She asked him what his specialty was, he said, “I’m an Ob/Gyn man.” From Jimmy: Putting smelly, sticky bait in your girlfriend’s designer blue jeans while she’s swimming is not as fun an idea as it sounds. But it is a good way to find out just how hard she can hit and how long she can stay mad. From my family files: My Uncle Walter never lived down the time we were all boating and his wife yelled at him not to jump in the water with his new watch on. So, he carefully took it off, pushed it into the pocket of his cut off jeans, and jumped in the bay. Yes, alcohol was involved. Safe boating everyone!

(Have you noticed? The sea level is rising. The temperature is going up.) Two years ago, in the Sebonac section of Southampton, a private homeowner suggested he put up a wind turbine. After the neighbors objected that it would: a. be unsightly, b. hum and c. harm the environment, our local town environmentalist, bless his heart, rejected the application on environmental grounds. Five years ago, a plan to put windmills out into the ocean off Long Island failed, not because of objections, although there were objections, but because those who bid to build them priced them so high they were beyond any reasonable budget. Not long ago, a plan to put a natural gas plant in the center of Long Island Sound with pipes extending to both Long Island and Connecticut caused a violent negative reaction
in these parts, including a big thumbs down from this newspaper. Ultimately, the State of New York, which needed to approve it, declined. And they went away. Here was something that, if you ran into it in a fog, you could blow up with such force it would shatter windows 30 miles away. Here was something that would look like a bull’s-eye to any responsible terrorist. Here was something that would encourage the use of all the stuff we are supposed to be getting away from—coal, oil, shale, etc. As it happens, on land, windmills are in great abundance in only a few locations in the United States—and they happen to all be clustered on Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod and the Hamptons—with the majority of them in the Hamptons. That all these windmills happen to be made of cedar shingles, wood and can-
vas, and were originally built between 200 and 350 ago does not bode well for opponents of future windmills. These old windmills, just like the ones being proposed today, were built to harness the energy of the wind. The wind turned the blades. The blades turned the gears, the gears turned the stones and wheat got ground into flour. Same idea. Maybe I’m just not getting with the program, but I see nothing but good in harnessing the power of the sun and the wind and even the waves. And if they want to do it here they should do it here. I’d love to see a windmill atop the Dan’s Papers building in Bridgehampton, which I own. I take that back. I’d like to see it, not love to see it. But if it would power the joint without hurting anything and without heating up the planet, I’d do my part.
inquiries of the Police Chief and others, but Mayor Motz did not take my calls. Nevertheless, this young woman, well before the end of summer, reluctantly resigned her post at the paper. We often stayed late in the evenings working, she could not deal with being stopped or followed in her home town any more and would have to find other work. The sense of menace in the town, though palpable, was not enough to unseat the mayor at election time, however. It was only in the fall of 2009 when the indictment against him was filed by the SEC, that he resigned from office
to fight it. However, in October of 2009, when a review of the evidence by his attorney revealed they had the goods on him, Motz changed his plea from “not guilty” to “guilty,” and basically threw himself at the mercy of the court. He signed papers agreeing he did it, agreeing not to appeal the decision, and just hoping for the best sentence for his crimes possible. The outcome was not the best. Out on $500,000 bail since the indictment in 2008, Motz is now to wind up his personal affairs and report to the authorities before June 30 to begin his prison sentence.

said U.S. policy results in many Latinos not being able to live their lives with honor, and called the new Arizona Immigration Law, “Language as a loaded gun.” Medez repeated, “There only is one race, the human race.” He reminded the crowd that Blacks, Latinos and Native Americans are not and never have been “savages or sub-humans”—those notions were created by exploiters in order to sell, liquidate or take advantage of them, adding that Americans must get over what he called, “Post Colonial Stress Syndrome.” He stated that the majority of the top third in the graduating classes of East Hampton and Southampton high schools are Latinos, yet they cannot go to college because they’re not documented. At the rally, Sandra Dunn, of the Hagedorn Foundation whose grant helped financially support the rally, said, “Fire bombings, stabbings, murder are not what made this country great. It’s time for real dialogue.” However the opposition across the street saw things differently. They most likely are angry that change is happening, without order, without boundaries, without a roadmap to guarantee that those who were here first maintain their privileges. I suppose on that account the Shinnecocks should be the ones telling all the “illegals” to leave—especially the rich, white ones. This debate will not end soon, in fact in the wheels of history it never ends; it just gets amended over and over again. It never ends because there is no right way to do the wrong thing.
Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner The Oil Spill I don’t know if it’s because I grew up in East Hampton, but I have deep feelings about the environment. Just the fact that you’re reading this on paper bothers me, and I have to remind myself that thanks to strict paper and logging laws, print is a renewable resource and is actually better for the environment than the energy it is taking to write this story on my computer. When I read about the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, I felt a punch in the stomach. I think a lot of people did. This kind of spill is astronomical. In a matter of days, the 200,000 gallons a day are pumping out uncontrollably into the ocean. It’s not even really a spill, it’s more like an oil geyser or oil volcano. By day three of this disaster, we were able to see oil slicks in the water from space, and nobody really knows how long this is going to keep pumping oil into the ocean. It’s crazy. Booms are not going to stop this, the only thing that can be done is to do something to stop the oil from gushing out. Shoot torpedoes at it, divert all resources to this, send everything to stop this! Obviously I’m upset. What is bothering me the most is that not enough people are talking about this. I really believe that this is a catastrophe on a whole other dimension of scale. This is just completely crazy. In my opinion this is worse than Katrina and to not have the foresight to tell how bad this is going to be for
our coastline really bothers me. Everyone should be in a state of alert about this. The Exxon Valdez disaster, which was literally just one oil super tanker that crashed and leaked oil, is nothing compared to what is going on in the Gulf. I don’t think we’re realizing how big of a disaster this is. I’ve heard people say things like, “This happens.” This kind of a thing doesn’t happen. This is unprecedented. But what can I do? I wish I could think of something. The only solution I can think of is to send boat load after boatload of large boulders to the underwater oil geyser, and try to cover it with heavy rock. The only other thing I can think of is to send in U.S. Navy submarines and fire torpedoes around the hole in the hopes that the explosions will collapse the hole that’s pouring out oil. Right now British Petroleum, the company responsible for this spill, is trying to dig a release valve. Some are predicting this could take months. I’m tired of the political blame on this as well. This is a huge problem, there shouldn’t be politics involved. I really don’t care that Sarah Palin said “drill baby drill” you’re not helping by saying that. She’s an idiot, there are lots of them out there. Who cares? All that matters is stopping this flow of oil from destroying nearly all of the wildlife and most of the livelihoods of people living along the southern coast.

follow the breadcrumbs back home where—lo and behold— their dad has kicked out his wicked wife. I don’t know. I guess it doesn’t fly any way you look at it. The Big Bad Wolf also presents problems in every story he is in. He’s just big and bad. In Peter and the Wolf, he eats the duck. And then when the hunters catch him and they escort him out of the forest and to the zoo at the end of the story, you can hear the duck quacking inside the wolf, because, as the narrator says, the wolf swallowed him ALIVE. The Big Bad Wolf eats grandma in the story of Little Red Riding Hood. In The Three Little Pigs, he scares the hell out of two of them who only survive his blowing their straw and stick houses down when they all huddle terrified inside the brick house that the smart pig built. There’s even a moral here. Careful, detailed work is much better than slapdash done on the cheap. “I don’t know,” a bigwig says. “Seems kind of marginal to me.” “Maybe we can get a brick company to sponsor the thing. Can we have a vote?” The vote is no. One of the big problems that Disney had to deal with in the early years of Disney World (opened in 1971), was The Song of the South. You probably never heard of Song of the South. It’s been suppressed for years.
Song of the South is a Disney movie. It was made around 1946 and involves the lives of the people who inhabit a plantation somewhere south of the Mason Dixon Line. In the big house is the wealthy Colonel and his lovely blond curly-haired wife and children. Attending them are black servants in starched white uniforms. But then, just across the river but still on the plantation are the tumbledown shacks where all the black folk live. And in the movie we spend a lot of time there. The blacks have rags for shoes, they have ripped clothes, they are dirt poor and they have no running water. But they are happy. Among them are Uncle Remus, the kindly old grandpa figure. There is also Toby and Ginny. And then there are the two small kids from the plantation, the white kids, all scrubbed and dressed in stuff from Brooks Brothers who come across the river when the Colonel and his wife aren’t looking to play with the black kids and to learn from Remus. There’s lots of singing in Song of the South. It’s a musical. People break out in song all the time. Probably its most famous song, which you will surely know, is “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, Zippedy Aye. My oh My what a Wonderful Day,” sung by Remus as he leads all the kids down to the river where he squats down in the dirt and tells them the story of Br’er Rabbit and Br’er Bear and Br’er Fox. Br’er is of course the word Brother in negro dialect.
Song of the South was a big hit when it came out. And in the early years of Disneyworld, it was frequently shown of an evening on outdoor movie screens alongside roaring campfires in the woods of Fort Wilderness, which is a section of Disneyworld. I saw it there and loved it. I recall that midway through the film—we were all sitting on blankets—everybody cheered as from the back of the woods out came two people dressed as the chipmunks Alvin and Theodore from that famous chipmunk fairytale. They shook hands with everybody, then left. The next year Song of the South was banned. And it hasn’t been seen since. There is a vestige of Song of the South at Disneyworld though. I forget what they call the ride, but you get into a log and a chain pulls it up and up and up a steep mountain inside a tunnel and as it does you get various tableaus of Br’er Rabbit and Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear in various parts of the “woods” inside that tunnel. The music is, of course, Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah. Then the log gets to the top of the tunnel, tips over the edge out into the sunshine and down a water flume you go at high speed to splash into a little lake as Br’er Rabbit pretends to be all stickered up, injured and hurting in the sticker bushes. “Wait a minute,” the marketing man says after they’ve listened to him for a while. “Forget Uncle Remus. What if we just focus on Br’er Rabbit and his story? It’s got bravery, cunning, a little trick to it. What do you think?” They vote. It’s a yes. “Next on the agenda,” says the man running the meeting, “is Little Black Sambo.”

Property Taxes: The Final Assessment By T.J. Clemente A few weeks back in the East Hampton, I asked Len Bernard, an aide to Supervisor Wilkinson, about assessment in East Hampton. At that time he said the town was not looking into that avenue to address its fiscal shortcomings. In fact no one can truly state the last date of a town assessment in East Hampton. However in the Town of Southampton, the sole Assessor, Ed Deyermond, said that Southampton reviews assessments every year. In fact, May 1 marked the start of the process for tax assessment notices that will end up as final tax bills, to be mailed in December 2010. All Southampton Town residents have the right to challenge their assessments in person, or as Deyermond suggests, by going online at the Town website (town.southampton.ny.us). This year 16,000 properties are receiving decreases. Deyermond said they are mainly in the center of town in places like Flanders, East Quogue and Hampton Bays. But 3,000 properties are receiving increased assessments—mostly in the affluent areas of Sagaponack, Bridgehampton, Water Mill, the Village of Sag Harbor and the Village of Southampton. There were around 4,500 increases due to physical changes to properties, and not all physical change increases are from improvements done this year. Even though, in previous years, changes may have been done through proper channels, some of the changes were not recorded or translated into proper assessment numbers due to cracks in the system. Deyermond
explained that now the town has new software using aerial photographs to catch changes in structures, or to find new swimming pools, unrecorded swimming pools and new structures somehow not on file. He called the software “change finder.” “It’s important for the town to have accurate information because the health of the town is dependent on property taxes. Towns raise most of their money through property taxes,” he said. Even with a town budget of around $7080 million, Deyermond said that the property taxes in Southampton raised $301.1 million in 2009! He said there are various districts within the hamlets that have their own budgets, fire districts, school districts, park districts, and even lighting districts. I found it hard to believe or understand why East Hampton refuses to attempt to deal with assessment, even during this fiscal crisis. Noting that in Southampton the increases were to the larger homes in wealthy areas and the 16,000 decreases in less affluent areas, it makes political sense that a Republican administration in East Hampton would prefer that the very wealthy avoid paying their fair share. Yet, in honesty, the previous Democratic supervisor hit a wall of resistance when he attempted to address the issue. It may be noted that, when Adelaide de Menil sold here property on Further Lane in East Hampton for around $103 million in 2007, the assessment on the property was reportedly only about $6 million. How many
incresed town boats slip fees does that equal? But that’s a whole another article for the next election cycle 14 months from now. Deyermond, who has been in public service for over 32 years, served as sole Assessor of the Town of Southampton from 1990 to 2001 and was reappointed by the Town Board in 2006. It is a full-time, salaried position. He explained the process starts with collecting the raw data and reviewing it yearly. Then on May 1, his office sends out the preliminary assessments to the Town’s properties. This year, owners have until May 18 to appeal it, in hopes the assessment will be reviewed and lowered. When the appeal process is over, or on July 1, the final assessments are sent to the various districts. Once they receive the numbers, assessors commutate their tax needs, sending it back to the town collector of taxes who mails out the total tax bill on December 1. I asked Deyermond if the final 2010 number would be higher or lower than the 2009’s $301.1 million. His reply was, “At this time I have no idea.” Good civic lessons always preach for property owners to be proactive in attending to their assessment. Healthy aggressive attitudes on keeping it accurate and not high can save you some serious money especially with school taxes rising at the rate they are currently. As Ed Deyermond said,” Proper assessment is important to the health of the town.” East Hampton residents are learning this the hard way as town jobs and services are being cut, ended or not funded.

of barking Labrador retrievers to announce the bringing in of the tons of flopping fish swept into the net when it was hauled back in. Why the government did this has never been made clear to me. The Bonackers claimed the sport fishermen with their fancy fishing boats lobbied the government into banning haul seining. The government said, however, that haul seining was taking too many fish a day out of the sea and could not be regulated. And that was that. In the late 1980s, a protest was held in Amagansett where some Bonackers went down to the beach haul seining anyway. Among them was Billy Joel, who participated in the haul seine. Everybody got arrested, including Joel. It was a wonderful time. The upshot of this was that the government, around 1989, awarded each “displaced” Bonacker about $15,000 as compensation for taking away their livelihood. The idea was, presumably, that this money would allow some of them to find other skills and jobs to keep themselves and their families going. The $15,000 helped. But the following year, IRS agents swooped in demanding that each Bonacker pay about $4,000 back to the government since this gift was considered taxable income. There had been no advance notice that they intended to do this. The Bonackers were living close to the bone. Most of them had none of the money set aside. It became, frankly, a sort of straw that broke the camel’s back. Over the next five or ten years, fed up with the duplicity of the government, the Bonackers picked up and moved away, many of them to
the Grand Banks of North Carolina, where they are today and where there is plenty of shellfish, few regulations and lots of money to be made. Only 100 or so Bonackers remain in the Hamptons today. At the present time, the quotas for fishing certain species are so draconian that an occasional baymen will take slightly more than the quota will allow. As recently as last year, one bayman got arrested and fined for taking too many fish. Another bayman was arrested and fined about the same amount for fishing out of season for a particular fish. In reply, the baymen say that the types of fish involved in these matters—porgies—are in such abundance now that it is hard to go out fishing and NOT catch them. They claim the government numbers are way off. They say that some of the sections of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Act need major revisions. And they want to protest about it, but some of them have gotten into such hot water with summonses and fines and so forth that they fear that one more thing such as this and they will have their commercial fishing licenses pulled and they will no longer be able to feed their families. So here’s the deal. The baymen themselves, who have fought this and gone to court over it and have been fined over this, are now too few to mount a credible protest. And so, Bayman Association member Arnold Leo is organizing a protest and wants members of the community who may not have EVER fished before to join in. The protest will be in late June, it will be on the beach in Amagansett, and volunteers for
the protest will handle three porgies each, put them into a container, tag the container with the word PORGIES, and then watch as they are shipped off to the Fulton Fish Market in Manhattan. If the publicity ahead of time is any good, this voluntary disobedience of the law will be witnessed by members of the press, TV and the Internet, will result with an on-thespot summons handed out by members of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation who will be on the scene, and then the protesters—they are looking for 20— will be taken down to the nearest police station and booked. Then everybody will pay a fine— $325 for three illegal porgies—and released. And that will be that. It’s now been 50 years since I founded Dan’s Papers out here. Ten years ago, at our 40th anniversary party, held at a private home in Water Mill, the organizers arranged for a band of about 30 “hippies,” in full beads and bellbottoms and bandanas, to be on hand, shaking signs with my name on them, and making protest noises as they circled around a Volkswagen bus, painted up with flowers, parked on the front lawn. I don’t know where they got these people. They were probably the children of the real hippies. But I found it both amusing and sad—amusing because of how it reflected that earlier time and sad because they were not doing any meaningful protesting to make a better world. Well, this is your REAL chance. Contact Arnold Leo at the Baymen’s Association at 631907-4011. See you at the protest.

BUSINESS Givin’ You the
The Almighty Lawn Trumps Green Movement
By T.J. Clemente Beyond the green barriers of the privet hedge, and before the ego boost of the trophy tree, the next coveted landscape necessity on the East End is the green lawn. Despite the fact that some Hamptonites plopped their houses on sandy soil, and others in the middle of woods, many homeowners believe they should have a sea of green, despite the odds against that for country living, that includes moles, voles, grubs, rabbits, deer –you name it, we got it. But East End homeowners aren’t the only gluttons of green. According to a Yale University study, there are 21 million acres of turf grass in U.S home lawns. In fact 80% of all U.S. households have private lawns, with the size of the average American lawn at 1/3 acre. The Lawn Institute states that at least 50 million homeowners maintain residential lawns. Needless to say, this increase in grass has created a growth area, no pun intended, and now the focus is naturally aiming at growing the lawns “naturally.” Unfortunately, even with the push of the green movement, the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers in lawn care has increased—the U.S. used 67 million pounds of pesticide products by 1994. That’s 10 pounds per acre. Would you believe that this was much higher than agricultural applications, which average about 2.7 pounds per acre? Of the $40 billion spent to maintain
lawns, between $1.5 and $2 billion is spent on lawn pesticides each year. Pesticides cause a list of identified adverse health effects ranging from increased risk of lymphoma, leukemia, and various cancers to genetic damage leading to birth defects and decreased fertility. Is it any wonder the natural pesticides industry is growing as it is? In fact, Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy and local environmental organizations in Suffolk created a Comprehensive Fertilizer Reduction Plan to reduce the amount of nitrogen-based fertilizers used in the county. A Long Island research group stated that, instead of synthetic chemical pesticides or fertilizers, which harm soil life and merely mask a symptom of an underlying soil deficiency, organic landscapers use products containing natural ingredients that build up the soil. An organic landscaper may use materials like compost, natural fertilizer, earthworm castings, biological controls, beneficial insects, and oils and soaps, and a variety of non-chemical techniques that work in harmony with the eco-system of a yard—such as mowing at 3” or higher to shade out weed seeds. There are lists of local firms now specializing in these procedures on the internet (2009 Long Island Landscaper list). Local horticulturist Howard Goldenberg of Ray Smith Associates explained that with 95% of trees and shrubs his firm cares for, they use basically natural products for fertilizer. But he said it’s different for lawns because, “people
who pay money for lawn service want a very green lawn as soon as possible. Therefore we use products for the safest quickest and best results.” When asked what percentage are requesting “only natural fertilizer,” Goldenberg explained that, although it is a growing trend, only one in ten actually firmly request using only natural products for lawns. “There are firms that specialize in this but quite frankly what is 100% natural is open to debate. It is all in the definition,” he said, “It’s important for lawn services to provide green lawns. We do it in a safe, smart way, but we certainly entertain all requests to do the lawn 100% natural.” At the moment organic products represent a tiny share of the $40 billion fertilizer market in the U.S., but demand is growing along with that for organic foods and other items. This has prompted several companies, mostly small and regional ones, but also including corporations such as Scotts, to bet on producing the planet-friendly fertilizer. “There’s an organic market growing every minute,” said Ari Stines, a director of marketing and sales for fertilizer marker Organic Growing Systems Inc. An example of this is sales of Scotts Miracle-Gro’s organic products, which have been increasing by 15%-20% a year; conventional lawn-product sales grew by 5%. MiracleGro estimates the total organic lawn and garden market is now at $400 million, with fertilizers at $60 million.
A Friend Dies. Who Cares? Toxic drinking is an epidemic on campuses all across America.
When you come right down to it, students themselves are the best ones to tackle this problem. So, in growing numbers, Stony Brook students have joined together in the Red Watch Band movement. Working with experts, they fine-tuned a course in techniques to handle these alcohol emergencies. Red Watch Band members can act fast, when every second counts.They know the quick steps they can take to rescue a passed-out student from a drinking death, and can immediately summon professional help. Everyone completing the course is given the distinctive red watch for identification. Since its inception at Stony Brook University in March 2009, more than 60 schools across the country have signed on to implement this lifesaving program.

project, $11.4 billion, to the Gulf Oil Spill Fund of Funds. Though disappointed, Hampton Subway has put together a new plan to landscape all the tunnels and platforms. The cost will be much less— a piddly $145,500 according to the projections — and moving ahead on the presumption that this money can be moved back into the subway fund—it would amount to just a 110 square feet of ocean surface oil cleanup—we have hired renowned Landscape Architect Bolognesa di Fabricatti to provide a plan. All the Hamptons is abuzz over the di Fabricatti plan released on the Hampton Subway website yesterday. It features rose-covered trellises at the entrances and exits of each subway stop, palm trees alongside all the escalators, beach grass and rhododendrons on the platforms themselves and seas of tulips and poppies and lilacs intertwined amongst themselves on all the tunnels connecting up the stations. There is a safety feature as well. At the edge of every platform, instead of just the scary drop down to the third rail, there will be an entire platform long hedgerow with a little opening in it for boarding and disembarking. There are only three downsides to this plan. One is the problem with people with allergies— we intend to provide pollen masks at the turn-
stiles for those afflicted—two, the slowing down of the subway trains in order to allow for pruning, watering and lawn mowing, and three, some objections to the use of little Piping Plover birds to be rounded up and nested in little nests on the tops of the trellises. Environmental groups are furious at this idea which does unfortunately involve the most coddled of all endangered species in the Hamptons. But we shall press on. ROUNDING UP All token booth personnel have been instructed when making change to round off the amount to the next highest five cents in order to provide a little gift to the straphangers when making purchasers and also to save time. To make up for this, the rates for each fare are going up five cents next week. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S NEWSLETTER The Hampton Subway Board of Directors has taken a second look at the proposal by the Montauk Merchants Association that the subway name be changed to East End Subway so people bound for Montauk would not get off in Amagansett to look for a “Montauk” subway system since they would have been on the Hampton Subway until then. We rejected this out of hand in our first go around. Now, considering that we might soon open a spur station at Foxwoods in Connecticut and we might also, in the future, consider having a stop on the North Fork on this line heading for Foxwoods, we are currently considering changing the name Hampton Subway to Everywhere Subway. The beauty of this is no matter where we open new stops, the name does not have to be reconsidered. The sky’s the limit!

Cold or Allergies? Honey or Meds? By Maria Orlando Pietromonaco Are you gouging your eyes out with your fingernails due to indescribable itching? Do you feel like taking sandpaper to your inner ears? Are you sneezing, wheezing, sniffling, hacking, and just plain miserable? Along with the glorious May flowers that the April showers bring comes a storm of vexing allergies. Our beautiful countryside here on the East End is a doubleedged sword; we are surrounded by lush greenery that’s both eye candy and a source of misery for so many of us. Spring is the onset of a long season of torment, starting with tree pollen, which affects us until about the end of May, then grasses starting in July through late summer, and finally weeds from midAugust through the fall. To top it off, we also have mold to contend with, since Long Island’s humidity rarely falls below 50%, which is a catalyst for mold spores. An allergy is your immune system’s reaction to a foreign substance, such as pollen, pet dander, mold, etc. The immune system produces proteins called IgE antibodies, which protect you from these offenders that make you sick or cause an infection. This triggers your body to release histamines and other
substances that cause allergy symptoms involving your skin, sinuses, airways, or digestive system. These symptoms vary in their intensity for different people, but most are simply annoying irritations. So how do you know if it’s a cold or an allergy? Many people don’t know what they have and what they are treating. I know people that swear up and down “it’s just a cold.” For some reason many people don’t want to admit they have allergies; they are in denial that their woes could be an ongoing affliction. In either case, the symptoms are very similar. One red flag would be the presence of fever, as allergies do not cause this reaction. The only true test to find out if you indeed have allergies is the skin prick test (SPT), where a doctor actually introduces different allergens into your system via a prick to the skin to see if you react. Just like the common cold, allergies cannot be cured. So we have to learn to deal with the constant nagging of congestion and other distressing allergy symptoms. Allergen avoidance would be the best way to handle it, though for most of us virtually impossible. Your doctor would help you take steps to identify and avoid your allergy triggers. If you are allergic to tree pollen, you would have to stay
indoors for most of the spring season. Medications are the most practical way to reduce symptoms. Allergy medications can help reduce your immune system reaction and ease symptoms. The drugs you use depend on the type of allergy you have. Some common allergy medications include corticosteroids, antihistamines, decongestants, cromolyn sodium and leukotriene modifiers. Dr. Russell Cancellieri treats all kinds of allergy sufferers here on the South Fork. “Some over-thecounter medications actually work. They used to be very sedating, but that is no longer the case.” Antihistamines and decongestants such as Benadryl, Zyrtec, and Chlor-Trimeton can do the trick for many. Claritin, now also available over the counter, seems to be effective for many people as well. “If a patient does not respond to these drugs, then we recommend a prescription medication,” explains Dr. Cancellieri. Some of these include Allegra, Clarinex, and Xyzal. Medicated eye drops and nasal sprays are also useful to keep symptoms at bay. When all else fails, the road to treatment usually leads to immunotherapy, which is desensitization to allergens in the form of injections. For those of us who shy away from medicating the (continued on next page)

traditional way, there are some alternative methods to be aware of. None of these therapies have been proven, although there are claims from many individuals of their effectiveness. According to the Mayo Clinic, some herbal remedies and supplements include goldenseal, butterbur, belladonna, and bromelain. Some alternative healing treatments that have been known to help are acupuncture, probiotics, and hypnosis. One homeopathic method that some locals swear by is honey. “The oral administration of the pollen allergen has been said to work, although that’s debatable,” says Dr. Cancellieri. “Native Americans used to eat poison ivy to cure the reaction to poison ivy. I wouldn’t want to be the first to try that.” If you have an aversion to visiting the doctor and you want to play allergy sleuth yourself, keep a journal and take note of when you have a flare up. Most likely you will see a pattern and actually figure it out yourself. You can then, if possible, eliminate or avoid the allergy triggers. Coping with allergies is a personal battle that we all have to fight using various weapons. And just because you don’t have them yet, doesn’t mean you will not stay allergy-free in the future. Hormonal changes and the intrinsic nature of aging can bring on allergies at any time.

Insider’s View of Southampton Homes
By Stacy Dermont Just in time for a memorable Mother’s Day gift, The Southampton Historical Society will be offering a house tour on Saturday, May 15. It’s the perfect present because you can buy tickets and stick them in a Mother’s Day card and mail it, or drop it off. Much like a house, you can dress it up – add a bouquet of flowers or a hand written invitation to a post-tour dinner. No muss, no fuss – just gobs of inspiring eye candy followed by a champagne reception. This is Southampton’s only tour featuring the interiors of homes located in the historic Village of Southampton. Inviting Mom to other peoples’ homes means no dirty dishes for you. Plus, she gets to choose who will accompany her and she can travel at her own pace through these gorgeous, historic homes in the order she pleases. Balcastle will be one of seven historic homes featured. Built in 1911, this Gothic-style castle was built by local master carpenter, builder and artist, Edward J. Elliston. Based on the design of an Irish castle, it was created to be an academy for the arts and crafts movement. The current owner is a wellknown New York interior designer who has filled the interiors with a magnificent collection of antique and modern furnishings. And then there’s Ocean Castle. This Normanstyle castle was built on the ocean in 1929. The three story multi-bayed stucco and brick house has a massive slate roof that covers one of the longest houses on Long Island. The interior is decorated in a grand yet whimsical manner. The great room with a massive chandelier leads into a dining room with a circus theme. The Captain Edward Sayre House, original structure circa 1700s, was remodeled in 1836. This Greek Revival house was moved during the late 1890s to its present location. Edward Sayre was one of 18 whaling captains who lived at one time on Main Street. The home is now occupied by a descendant from Southampton’s first English families and is decorated with family heirlooms. Linden was originally built in 1886 and called “Lenoir,” after extensive remodeling by architect Grosvenor Atterbury in 1916, it became known as “Linden.” It has 35 rooms with a grand entrance through the front gates. A formal entry hall leads (continued on page 44)

First of all, the original home at the corner of Montauk Highway and Ocean Road in Bridgehampton was not built by Nathaniel Rogers but by Abraham Rose in 1820. Rose also went on to build the Bulls Head Inn across the street and become a famous judge. Rogers, the accomplished miniature portrait painter of the social elite of the City of New York during the early 19th century, was

Courtesy Bridgehampton Historical Society, circa 1921
By T.J. Clemente At long last, work on the long-ignored Nathaniel Rogers House in Bridgehampton has begun, with the bringing down of the giant columns that were put on the circa 1820 home in 1840.With cranes and scaffolding in place, the beginnings of the complex restoration is now in motion. The Bridgehampton Historical Society, under the leadership of Executive Director John Eilertsen, has been pursuing a $4.5 million restoration strategy that encompassed buying the building and property for $550,000 in 2003, hiring architects, and securing $1.1 million of Southampton Town and Community Preservation Fund grants as well as $700,000 from the New

actually born in Bridgehampton in 1788. His methods of work are listed as easel painting, miniature paintings and portraits on ivory. He was also known for his brilliant skills painting miniature watercolors. Rogers purchased the home from Judge Rose in 1839 following his retirement from painting in New York City. It was under his watchful eye that the home was transformed into the Greek revival appearance we see (in less than pristine condition) today. Later this look was made famous by post cards and magazine articles of the house when it became the Hampton House in 1890. Rogers didn’t have the opportunity to experience the majesty of his efforts on the home for long. He passed away in 1845, just six years after purchasing the property. His widow died just two years later, in 1847. At that point, the house and property were acquired by Sag Harbor whaling legend Captain Huntting. Eilertsen mentioned there were several other owners until 1890, when the property was transformed into the Hampton House, Restaurant and Inn by the Hedges and Hopping families. The look of that 1890s Hampton House will be the goal and focus of the restoration. “Hedges and Hopping made some minor additions to the spectacular work that Mr. Rogers did,” said Eilertsen. “It is the look from post cards and illustrations of the Hampton House (circa 1890s) that we are aiming our efforts.” As far as the timetable for completion, Eilertsen said, “We hope to have the exterior completed by the summer of 2011. We’re now in the process of taking down the columns and storing them.” Everyone driving by will able to watch as the historical home is transformed back into the gem it was for most of the 19th century. Eilertsen optimistically added, “We are taking bids throughout Southampton to restore and build the roofs, the windows, the floors and framing the substructure issues. I believe we may be able to have the ribbon cutting ceremony for the whole project on July 4, 2012.” When Eilertson said “the whole project” he means the exterior as well as a refurbished interior. Upon completetion, the building will become a museum (continued on page 44)

House Home guide By Stacy Dermont I thought that I knew which house was the oldest house in Sag Harbor. I was sure that I knew which houses were the contenders. I quite liked that what I believed to be Sag Harbor’s oldest houses surrounded my circa 1914 home. Sag Harbor traces its founding to the year 1707, when it was first mentioned as “Sag Harbor” in Southampton Town records. But there were probably no permanent residences in Sag Harbor until the 1740s. Until this time, only a very few white men occupied shanties near Turkey Hill, only part of the year. These settlers were either fishermen or farmers who gathered the local salt hay. You couldn’t call Sag Harbor “bustling” until the late 18th century when the whaling

industry took off. This is when Turkey Hill was leveled to fill in the swamp that was then Sag Harbor or “Great Meadows,” as it had been known in earlier times. So Sag Harbor couldn’t possibly have any buildings from before the 1740s, right? Well of course it can, Sag Harbor history is nothing if not complex and contradictory. In earlier centuries people moved buildings around like, well, kind of like today’s mobile homes. Except back in the day they used greased logs and oxen, instead of tractor trailers. The lumber and the copious amount of labor required to carve that lumber made houses and barns very valuable, far more valuable than the land they occupied. So my choice for the oldest house in Sag Harbor is that sweet, white cottage on Union Street that was moved to Sag Harbor from Sagaponack. Originally built in the 1640s, much of what’s there now dates to 1693. I long to decorate it with antiques and Shabby Chic bedding. I figured that this little gem beat out The Umbrella House on Division Street. Someone told me when I moved to Sag Harbor that the Umbrella House (now a wine shop) was the oldest house in Sag Harbor. The Umbrella House is an odd one. It’s name comes from its uniquely shaped “umbrella” roof. It housed British troops during the Revolution and was shot by cannon during the War of 1812. But don’t believe everything you read. I came across a web site that points out that “the light colored bricks on the lower left” denote where the canon ball hit it. Nope, that’s where the SUV hit it six years ago. I figured there were two other contenders for oldest house: Sag Harbor’s smallest house at XX Hampton Street and the Hand House on Church Street. I knew that the tiny house had been moved to Hampton Street from the wharf and that its former owner had doubled its size in the 20th century. It seems like something that tiny has to be especially old. The Hand House is such a dark and crooked spectacle, it seemed like it could predate its most famous occupant by many years. This house was home to Captain David Hand, a local Revolutionary soldier who is fabled to have been the inspiration for James Fenimore Cooper’s most famous hero Natty Bumppo. You may have read about Bumppo’s adventures in the Leatherstocking series of novels, still read by school children in the 20th century. Bumppo’s nickname was “Hawkeye.” I was once again reminded of just how very complex and contradictory our local history is when I asked Sag Harbor Historian Dorothy Zaykowski and Southampton Town Historian Zach Studenroth if I had indeed picked Sag Harbor’s oldest house. They gave the same, short answer: “That could be.” Records are scanty and much of Sag Harbor burned down in 1845 and in 1877 and yet again in 1881. So…records are scanty. But Studenroth added three more houses to the mix. He said that the older portion of Sag Harbor’s Custom House appears to go “way, way back” and that the older, “hidden house” within the Marpurgo House behind Sag Harbor’s Library may also be 17th century. Plus, he pointed out, that the Annie Cooper Boyd House, where the Sag Harbor Historical Society is headquartered is even older than it looks. Whew! That’s a lot to take in. Oh well, that sweet, white cottage on Union Street is the only one of Sag Harbor’s oldest houses on the market right now, represented by Beth Troy of Town & Country Real Estate. At $925K, it must also be the one of the most reasonably priced houses in the village. I’m putting it at the top of my Mother’s Day Wish List. To be continued.

to the great room overlooking nearly 10 acres with a rose garden, old trees, greenhouse, swimming pool and a fountain. Rosemary Lodge in Water Mill was begun in 1884 by the Reverend Henry Turbell Rose as a simple shingle-style cottage. It was transformed over 37 years into a creation all his own, infused with charm, wit and warmth. Rose also designed and built over 50 pieces of furniture and built-ins that appear in every room in the house. The Lodge is a museum quality example of Shingle Style architecture and the Queen Anne design aesthetic. The Thomas Halsey Homestead, built in 1666, is a rare “first period” house, built in the pioneer hamlet of Southampton by Thomas Halsey, Jr., son of Thomas Halsey, one of the original English 1640 settlers.

Last, but never least, is the Rogers Mansion, original structure circa 1700s with extensions added in 1843 and 1916 The Mansion was home to whaling Captain Albert Rogers and his family. Sam Parrish, founder of the Parrish Art Museum purchased the home in 1899. He remodeled and enlarged the mansion with the help of his friend Grosvenor Atterbury. It has been the home of the Southampton Historical Museum since 1944 and has art exhibits and displays of historic furnishings. The Champagne Reception and Private Exhibition Preview beginning at 5 p.m. will feature a wide variety of sweet and savory edibles and delicious libations generously donated by Southampton’s Sant Ambroeus.

housing the historical society archive and gallery spaces as well as the administrative headquarters of the Historical Society. The Rogers House had its supporters from the beginning. Eilertsen praised the efforts of Dennis Suskind. Years back, while still on the Town of Southampton Board, Suskind was very much involved in helping to get the ball rolling in terms of buying the building and property. He also played an instrumental role in saving the home so that it could ultimately be restored. Known more as a local commercial developer, Suskind has been an “angel” to the project from the beginning. He was one of the 270 that helped raise that initial $550,000 for the purchase in 2003. Key to current fundraising efforts is BHHS Board Member H. Kevin Miserocchi, head of the Rogers House Committee. Miserocchi continually organizes fundraising events to support the project. But now there is need for some new Rogers House “angels” to step up and make a donation. The fundraising efforts must still produce around $1.5 million to complete the project up to the standards of the Bridgehampton Historical Society. Eilertsen and many others have no doubt that when this project is completed The Rogers House will become a distinguished building in the Hamptons again with people visiting, posing for photos and pointing to it proudly as the landmark it once was 170 years ago. For information on how to donate, contact the Bridgehampton Historical Society at 631-537-1088, or visit the website at bridgehamptonhistoricalsociety.org

A House is Given the Bug Test
Photos Susan Galardi
By Susan Galardi Sometimes, living in the Hamptons, I feel like I have a split personality – one is Eva Gabor and the other is Eddie Albert. Yes. My psyche is divided between the two lead characters from the ridiculous sitcom, “Green Acres.” I love the Hamptons – keep Manhattan and gimme that countryside, I say. But I get my Eva Gabor up when it comes to pests. Ants, paper wasp nests, ticks, mosquitos and especially things like termites that could aversely affect my ROI – in other words, make me have to pay someone to repair terGutters: GOOD!

inside. If you have fruit trees, harvest ripe fruit and pick up fallen fruit immediately. If you want to feed the birds, get rodent-proof bird feeders. Clear away bricks or boards stacked near the home, as well as leaves and brush. They create ideal nesting locations. Don’t stack firewood near your house. Keep it in a sealed, elevated cabinet at least 20 feet away. Have your roof inspected every 2-3 years for signs of decay, water damage and mold. Keep basements, attics, and crawl spaces well ventilated and dry. Fix leaking fixtures right away. Water damage causes wood to be soft and moldy, creating an ideal habitat for certain bugs. When to call a Pro: If you have signs of an infestation. Note where the pests were first seen and any damage they may have caused. Don’t handle heavyduty pesticides yourself, call someone who’s licensed and trained to handle potentially harmful pest control substances. Free said an inspector worth his salt will do a complete inspection of the home and adjacent areas to determine the extent of the problem, identify the type of pest, nesting locations, entry points, and food supplies; and consider all control methods. Oh, and The Bug Stops Here has another interesting business approach: “We don’t charge you because you live in the Hamptons,” said Free. Yep. Ants, termites and other bugs in Sagaponack or Shoreham are on the same rate card.

High Tech Safety for your Pooch When most people think of electronic devices for dogs, what comes to mind is either underground pet containment/fencing or remote/shock collars. But there are some wonderful new electronic aids to help keep your dog safe by preventing him from getting lost, or helping to recover him should he go missing. You may have heard the word “microchip” in reference to helping to identify your dog, but you don’t exactly know all the details. Home Again microchipping is a very simple procedure requiring an injection much like a vaccine. The chip is about the size of a grain of rice. The injection is placed between the shoulder blades and the patented design keeps the microchip from migrating. If your dog is lost and taken to a veterinary office or animal shelter, the microchip can be scanned and your pet will be returned to you. Ninety percent of lost pets that do not have proper identification never return home. Over 450,000 veterinarians, animal shelters and volunteers make up the Home Again Microchip Identification and Recovery System Network. The cost is about $20.00. Simple, easy, affordable and it could save your dog’s life. You’ve heard of a Nanny Cam, now you can see what Mikey and Murphy are up to when you’re not home with “VueZone.” There’s no drilling, no wires, and no software. Just hook up the gateway to your broadband router. Your VueZone.com account allows you to view or record who’s been chomping on your Jimmy Choos when you’re at work. Plus it will give you peace of mind when you can’t be home and you’re worried
about the canine and feline members of your family. You can view the Vue on any computer or iPhone. This one’s a bit pricey...about $300. Available on vuezone.com. Here’s the piece de resistance! Remember LoJack? Well this is like getting LoJack for your dog. The SpotLight Pet Locator is a GPS Pet Tracking Device. Through a partnership with American Kennel Club Companion Animal Recovery (AKC CAR), PAW (Positioning Animals Worldwide Inc.) is the only company to provide 24/7/365 tracking and recovery for your pet. The device is small and lightweight and fits on any collar or harness. It’s durable and the batteries are rechargeable. You don’t even need to remove the dog’s collar to charge them. Directions to your dog’s location are e-mailed or texted to your cell phone. If someone finds your dog, there is a rescue button on the GPS pet locator that connects your lost dog with you and the AKC CAR Recovery Team. You designate safe areas for your dog and if he leaves the safe areas, you will be alerted immediately. If it’s dark outside, you can text “Spot light On” and your pet’s name to 99134 and a bright LED light on the device activates. Another feature is the ability to let you know at what speed your dog is traveling, which will alert you if your dog is picked up by someone in a vehicle. As this item was featured on the “Today Show,” it has been reduced in price to $199.99. Take a product tour for yourself at spotlightgps.com.

Simple Art of Cooking Silvia Lehrer
The Sweetest Gift For Mom baked for certain holidays, and her tavla de dulces (tray of sweets), quince or apricot candy and sesame squares were legendary among our family. But learn to bake I did through the many years studying the culinary arts here and abroad. So here to honor Mother’s Day are two great desserts to treat her to a do-ahead surprise at home. A special meal should end with a sense of celebration.
My mom was a great baker but I didn’t grow up baking anything. It’s just that Mom’s kitchen was her domain and as one of four girls we were there to take care of the next. I also seemed not to have a sweet tooth. Growing up I went directly for the savory – her phyllo pies with spinach and variety of cheeses, her array of eggplant, legume and rice dishes, and her pastas learned from a close Italian neighbor. Mother’s baking stemmed from her tradition and Sephardic heritage. It consisted of biscocho an almond cookie that were always on hand, a fresh challah baked every Friday night, her delicious olive oil and honey cake that she
STRAWBERRY RHUBARB CRISP Rhubarb with its characteristic tart flavor is a vegetable that parades as a fruit and is in perfect harmony with sweet ripe strawberries. Serves 6-8 For the filling 1 1/2 pounds rhubarb, trimmed and sliced 1 pint strawberries, rinsed, hulled and quartered 1/2 cup sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, sifted For the streusel topping 1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1 cup all-purpose flour 3/4 cup light or dark brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1 stick unsalted butter, cubed 1. In a mixing bowl, combine rhubarb, strawberries, sugar and vanilla. Toss gently to mix and allow to macerate for 30 minutes for flavors to meld. Add cinnamon and flour and toss gently to mix well. Set aside. 2. In bowl of electric mixer set on low or in a mixing bowl, mix the streusel ingredients just until blended and crumbly. Streusel mixture can be prepared several days ahead. Refrigerate in a suitable container. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 3. When ready to bake, place the strawberry rhubarb filling in a large shallow baking dish. Cover the fruit mixture generously with the streusel and bake for 20 - 30 minutes until juices are bubbly and top is a bit crusty. Serve warm with a dollop of creme fraiche or vanilla ice cream.

Note: The dish can be entirely prepared ahead and reheated before serving. CHERRY PRALINE TORTE Two simple sponge cake layers are sandwiched with fresh cream and topped with a blanket of cherries. Serves 8 to 10 4 size large eggs at room temperature 1 cup superfine sugar 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, sifted 1 tablespoon Kirsch For the glaze 3 tablespoons apricot preserves 3 tablespoons currant jelly 3 tablespoons cold water 3/4 cup heavy cream, whipped 2 10-ounce packages frozen pitted cherries, drained on paper towel. 1/3 cup praline powder* Butter two 9-inch round cake pans with removable bottoms. And dust with unseasoned bread crumbs. Preheat oven to 350°F. 1. Place eggs in a mixing bowl or bowl of electric mixer and beat at low speed gradually adding the sugar. Adjust to medium speed and beat mixture 4 to 5 minutes until batter is thick and pale yellow. 2. Sift flour onto a square of wax paper then, with a large rubber spatula, carefully fold into the egg mixture; add the Kirsch and stir until thoroughly incorporated. Divide mixture between cake pans and bake on middle shelf for 25 to 30 minutes until cakes are golden brown and top springs back when lightly touched. Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes.

Arts & Entertainment LongHouse Reserve Opens for Season induced by a “monochromatic palette, a green-on-green, that despite enormous color, calms the eye.” Artist Barbara Press describes her connection to LongHouse in terms of aesthetic aspects as well. She notes that “it’s a unique visual experience, the relationship between the art and the garden. I’ve never seen such incorporation of design concepts. There are not just plantings here, but it’s the relationship of the plant to its surroundings that’s important. The LongHouse is from the eyes of an individual creator, Jack Larson, who is an artist in his own right. This place reflects his vision.” Founding member and artist Elyse Grant characterizes LongHouse as a philosophical metaphor: a healing sanctuary and transcendental connection. “When I lost my husband, I found this place very healing,” she confides without hesitation. “There’s so much here that raises our consciousness. It’s a bridge to another realm.” Grant also gives another purpose to LongHouse, one that borders on the political. “We need this place, especially now,” she says. “We need this place of respect and calmness now that our world is so filled with crisis and fear.” African tribal art collector Douglas Dawson has a particular connection to LongHouse. As the curator Photo Barry Gordin
By Marion Wohlberg-Weiss When we think of the LongHouse Reserve, we think of a hidden garden way off the beaten path in East Hampton. Away from the South Fork beaches, chic Main Street, and Nick and Toni’s Restaurant. We also can’t help recalling other well-known gardens: the Garden of Eden; the Hanging Gardens of Babylon; and the novel The Secret Garden. All these places serve as salient metaphors–which came to light at LongHouse’s season opening last Saturday. Consider, of course, the Garden of Eden and the struggle between archetypical forces. As one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Hanging Gardens (built by King Nebuchadnezzar II around 600 BC for his homesick wife) represented renewal in another land. The 1910 book, The Secret Garden (by Frances Hodgson Burnett) was a central symbol signifying the healing power inherent in living things. While it’s true that the LongHouse Reserve has existed in recorded history, it still shares many metaphors with much older gardens, particularly the idea of new life and healing. Certain activities reinforce this concept, including sound meditation sessions each Saturday morning and weekly Twilight Garden Tours. Regardless of these group events, however, there are individual reactions to LongHouse; words like “peace, sanctuary and magical” continue to be evoked. According to Jim Zajac, for example, the idea of tranquility is what attracts him most, a state
of its current exhibition, “Coming to Africa: A Potter’s Journey to African Ceramics,” he says he can’t think of a better place to present his collection. “There’s a symbiosis that Jack Larson has between his manmade, natural and artistic entities here. It’s extraordinary.” Matko Tomicic, Director of the LongHouse, uses another succinct metaphor: “My feeling is that the garden is probably the best ‘fabric design’ Jack Larson ever did and is still doing. And it is our mission to keep it vibrant and relevant.” Finally, photographer Bastienne Schmidt puts it all together when describing the literal and figurative aspects of LongHouse: “LongHouse is a special place, tucked away, in a faraway land almost like in a fairytale. Its magic pulls you into a journey like in Alice in Wonderland. Every footstep, every turn, is full of color and texture. It is an aphrodisiac of the senses that continually surprises us: by a floating mobile sculpture of George Rickey, the Yoko Ono chess game, the gateway bell in the sand. A magic kingdom.” LongHouse Reserve: 133 Hands Creek Road, East Hampton. Call 631-329-3568 or check longhouse.org for garden hours and details about the sound meditation and Twilight Garden Tours.

Little Feat at WHBPAC
Little Feat By Susan Galardi Back in the dark ages of rock (the ‘70s), every now and then Time and other magazines would produce copies with a paper thin, black vinyl tear out stapled in. You could actually affix this mini-vinyl square to your turntable, and it would play music. It was a promo from record companies, trying to get that new kids’ music out to the public. I first heard Laura Nyro on one of these disposable records, and I heard these lyrics from a toe tappin’ band. “Now I’m six hours out on strawberry flats Trying to get to Waco ‘fore it freezes over. They’re stopping every one who looks too wierd At the ghoul bust Texas road block.” The song was “Strawberry Flats,” the year was 1971, and the band was Little Feat. Little Feat is still going strong, with a new release
Art Commentary by Marion Wolberg Weiss
in ‘08 to round out a 15-CD studio release discography. A fixture on the blues-rock landscape, with earthy, organic appeal and fine musicianship, the eclectic group has toured the world with sold-out shows for years. And this Saturday, that tour hits the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center Little Feat’s style combines California rock, Dixie-inflected funk-boogie, folk, blues, rockabilly, country and jazz. Not surprising to learn that this iconoclastic band grew from the roots of Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention. Songwriter, performer, instrumentalist Lowell George left Mothers, at Zappa’s suggestion, to start his own group. In just a few years, Little Feat scored a hit with the 1973 CD Dixie Chicken (the title was the inspiration for the band The Dixie Chicks), a New Orleans-influenced effort with the easy grooving title song. But who could forget those classic lines from 1978’s album, Waiting for Columbus, “Don’t bogart that joint, my friend, Pass it over to me; Roll another one, Just like the other one. This one’s burnt to the end. Come on and be a friend.” Moving right along, the 2008 release of Join the Band featured Little Feat hits played by band members and some special friends–like the Hamptons’ own Jimmy Buffett, Dave Matthews, Emmylou Harris, Chris Robinson (Black Crowes), Mike Gordon (Phish), and others. Little Feat’s music has been covered by Bonnie Raitt, Van Halen, Jackson Browne, The Byrds, Robert Palmer, Linda Ronstadt to name a few. Go hear that easy going, happy music at WHBPAC. It’ll send you on a reverie to Dixieland. Little Feat: Saturday, May 8, 8:00 p.m., 2010. Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center whbpac.com. Tickets are $80, $65, $50.

Even if we found ourselves inside this configuration, there’s a sense of openness and humor rather than claustrophobia. Dorothy Frankel’s “Love,” using sign language to form the word, “love,” is a signature piece which is subtle yet meaningful. It recalls Frankel’s sculpture in a Manhattan riverside park several years ago. –Marion Wolberg Weiss The Retreat Show will be at the Demato Gallery, 90 Main Street, Sag Harbor, through May 14, 2010.

Call it blush, vin gris or just plain “pink” if you want, but rosé is back. And local winemakers — and wine lovers — are rejoicing the revival of these underappreciated and misunderstood wines. Personally, I love rose because no other wine type or style, red or white, offers so many options and so much diversity at the table. From seafood to steak — and every food in between — there is a style of rose that will fit the bill. I’m not talking the sweet rose here — white zinfandel from the west coast
Rosé Is Back! need not apply. Dry rose can even bridge the gap between white wine and red, providing a gateway to wine exploration. Well-made roséé combines the complexity and structure of red wine with the refreshing, thirst quenching qualities of whites. And, rose a great pairing for meals centered on the spring vegetables that are have farm stands open across the east end. To help celebrate local rose, the Long Island Wine

Council has deemed May “Run for the Roses” month. Throughout May wineries across Long Island will donate a dollar from every bottle of rose purchased to CancerCare (cancercare.org), a national nonprofit organization that provides free professional counseling, therapeutic recreational events and activities, health information, and financial assistance to families and children affected by any type of cancer. Many wineries are offering other specials as well, including complimentary tastings, discounts and the like. Local restaurants and overnight accommodations are getting in on the Run for Roses as well with specials running throughout May. For a full list of the participants, visit liwines.com. Just about every local winery makes rose — and some make several — but here are some of the best that have crossed my tasting table of late. Wolffer Estate 2006 Noblesse Oblige ($40) is a elegant, classically styled sparkling rose made with 54% pinot noir and 46% chardonnay. Toasty and lightly yeasty on the nose with layers of peach and red berry beneath, it delivers creamy texture with bright acidity and a long citrusy finish that also shows a little golden declivous apple. Wolffer Estate 2009 Rose ($17) is made by blending red and white wines together and is super-fresh on the nose with grapefruit, strawberry and peach notes. Medium bodied and dry, the palate shows intense strawberry character with citrus and kiwi, all framed by appetite-whetting acidity. Shinn Estate Vineyards 2009 Rose ($15) is made in a very different style — it’s almost a red wine in its intensity, depth and subtle tannic structure. It brings ripe watermelon and red raspberry flavors and the heft to stand up to hamburgers or maybe even steak. Paumanok Vineyards 2009 Dry Rose ($15) might be their best dry rose to date, with unique brambly wild strawberry and blueberry aromas that lead into similar flavors with big-but-balanced acidity and some red apple on the finish. Croteaux 2009 Sauvage ($24) isn’t cheap, but it’s a unique rose from a winery that only produces pink wines. The nose is floral with peach rather than red fruit aromas. The palate is light, crisp and subtly earthy with a bit of red pear and light tannins. It was the first bottle emptied after my recent tasting.

takeover of the college loan program, should even scare you. Now we hear that some at the S.E.C., which is going to add to the staff to watch out for the bad Wall Street types, that are spending their tax payer working hours watching porn. Did they get their lead from Mr. Clinton who had some dalliances in the public’s oval office during 9 to 5? At least these guys or gals will lose their jobs. Gratefully. Juhn W.

TEA PARTY Dear Dan, Amazing how you can distort facts to make one of your biased statements. It is simply not true that “the Tea Party wants no new taxes whatsoever. They hate Obama...” Where do you come off as the spokesperson for the Tea Party? We all know that you are not an Independent. What percent of our GDP goes to entitlements? Do you care? I do since rewarding bad behavior results in more bad behavior and no accountability. A TALE OF TWO TIGERS Dear Dan, Yesterday I called your paper to express my feelings about your review of Tiger Woods’ return to golf and about Michael Paraskevas’ tribute to his mother, Betty, who passed away. Both letters and comments of you two were sad but wise. Dan, your comments about Tiger Woods’ golf game are so honest, fair and compassionate. Thank you. And Michael’s tribute to his mother is so wonderful, a remarkable storyteller, Betty, and person, and a great creative team. I am sad about Michael’s loss. I met him years ago when we were starting the Southampton Artists. He is so talented, can do anything in the artwork world! Tiger and his remarkable wife are victims of some cruel and humiliating media, but both are good people. I wish them and Michael all success and happiness. Your paper is great! Happy 50th. Sincerely, Nina Barstow Via snail mail PS I took one half an Ambian to fall asleep and after months, I for a few hours blacked out in my house. More success then, another is house “blackout” – a warning: medicine is often dangerous! Tiger took Ambian and hit a tree. Ambien works but hurts. – DR TAXING ISSUES Dear Dan, You say in your critique on the tea party crowd that they “hate Obama.” I follow these things pretty closely and never heard any of them express hate. But you’re a smart journalist and must have solid evidence, so I’ll take your word for it. However, I will have to disagree with you that the only thing they are worried about is a “No new taxes whatsoever.” If you listened carefully, you would know that they are more concerned, as I am, with wildly out of control spending and the growing massive federal and state level deficits. In addition, you should remember they have stressed the size and reach of a humongous government As recent examples, we have the health care bill which among other things, creates a lot of new agencies and amazingly included an out of the blue
James Amagansett Via e-mail I want safety nets and accountability. -DR A RIVERHEAD TREASURE Dear Editor, The Riverhead Town is blessed with a remarkable organization that has been in existence for
the past 63 years: The “Monday Night Band.” Howard Hovey formed a community concert band in 1947 to perform summer concerts. It has since grown into a fine musical organization. It also reflects an American tradition lost in too many communities. The musicians, including the Music Director, contribute their time and talent. However, no Music Director should have to shoulder such a monumental job without compensation. The public has been very generous in contributing monies to the Scholarship fund and sundry expenses, but the Music Director is not compensated. It is suggested here that various entities, i.e. Town Board, Chamber, School Board, Library, etc. contribute funds to compensate the Music Director. Note: the Board of Education does offer rehearsal and concert space.) The financial burden on these groups would be minimal and summers of riverside concerts would also be a nice touch for the downtown Riverhead. The “Monday Night Band” has a remarkable history. Thank you for your attention. Marty Stromsten Via Snail-mail TRIAL Dear Dan, You are as biased as the topics about which you write. Consider that the next time you pen a column that is supposed to be objective and fact based. You are as guilty of inflammatory and hate based rhetoric as those to whom you accuse of same. James, Amagansett Via e-mail I don’t see it, but I will keep it in mind. -DR
Police Blotter Shoe Stuck In The Gas A woman in Eastport was arrested for DWI after her shoe got stuck in the gas pedal of her car and she hit her husband with the car. The woman was leaving a parking spot outside of a restaurant when the incident occurred. Dang Jimmy Choo’s.
Shelter Island 2 Reports of unusual drops in blood pressure have been reported on Shelter Island. Apparently many have reported that literally the second they get off the ferry and onto Shelter Island, their blood pressure goes down dramatically. An investigation is underway.
Heroin? Really? There have been reports all over Long Island about a growing problem of teens and heroin. So far the blotter has been empty with teenagers and heroin until last week, when police arrested an 18-year-old man who has had previous narcotics violations. The man was found to be in possession of three capped hypodermic needles on his person.
It Was Like A Football The writer of this police blotter hit a rabbit this week in his car while driving to Montauk. This is the second time that this has happened on “the stretch.” The rabbit went flying into the air, kind of like a punted football. We said some prayers, it was very sad, poor little guy.
Shocking A man in Montauk zapped himself while trying to repair his lawn mower. The electric shock the man received was powerful enough to knock him to the ground. He was able to quickly recover, did not need to call the police, and then called a landscaping company to help him out. Shelter Island A rabid raccoon was sent to heaven by a Shelter Island resident thanks to a trusty 12 gauge shotgun.
Laptop Stolen Somebody stole an $800 MacBook laptop from a woman in East Hampton. The woman believes that the laptop computer was stolen while she was sleeping. $800 MacBook? Was this the version that was sold in 1989? Because last time I checked a MacBook costs people 2 to 3 grand, and it does so many amazing things! You can check your e-mail with it! Madoff Wannabe George Motz, the former Quogue Village Mayor, was sentenced to 8 years in prison for securities fraud after pleading guilty. By David Lion Rattiner
