25 For Conscience Sake

29 Big Fish

29 Fast Food

by Dan Rattiner A search for the first words uttered by the first settler landing at Conscience Point, Southampton in 1640. This person, a woman, waded ashore from a small boat and said “For conscience sake, we are on dry land again.” The world wants to know.

by Dan Rattiner Another world rod and reel fishing record for Montauk. A fisherman from Bay Shore, after quite a fight, brings in his catch to Montauk Fishing Village. The crowds cheer as the fish is hauled up by the crane. Is this on the up and up? Only a careful reading of this story will lead you to the answer to that.

by Dan Rattiner A dizzying trip through the mind of the author about hot fudge sundaes, visits to the doctor, fast food laws in East Hampton that aren’t, the new offices of Dan’s Papers and his mother. It’s possible he will be telling you more than you care to know.

When does a Sandcastle have 12 bathrooms?

A group of New York helicopter pilots employed by helicopter companies offered up a plan Friday to disperse their flight routes from Manhattan to the Hamptons so they fan out over a wide variety of routes over both land and water. This way every town gets to have helicopter noise, and it’s more democratic. Some get more, some get less. A representative of North Hempstead says as far as North Hempstead was concerned, he’d support that. The pilots also said the government’s plan to have them only fly over water, already proposed, was not practical because these routes over water would soon get too crowded. Leaves us scratching our heads. It’s a big ocean, n’est pas? Problem with fish covering their ears? The proposal -- DR was rejected by the Feds.

DOWN IN THE TUBE Jason Kidd looked sad holding a basketball and sitting alone on the subway between Southampton and Water Mill last Monday. It was the day after his beloved Dallas Mavericks, the team he piloted to the championships last year, got knocked out of the playoffs by the lowly Oklahoma City Thunder.

SUBWAY DELAYED RE-OPENING LAST TUESDAY Monday night after the subway shut down for its nightly maintenance, the workers brought out the giant, twirling Roto-Rooter bristle brush they use once a year to clean all the walls, ceilings and floors in the tunnels. The brush is a wonder to behold. It’s 12 feet in diameter and 20 feet long, and attached to the front of a subway car, it’s pig bristles turn corkscrew fashion brushing and brushing as the subway car guides it slowly down the tracks. Attached behind is the swiss shower water cannon car, which washes what the pig brush scrapes off and sends it down the drains rub-a-dub-dub. Call it spring cleaning, call it a miracle, but there was a 20 minute delay in finishing the job before the 7 a.m. reopening and we apologize for it. Still, the straphangers applauded the squeaky clean tunnels when they boarded the cars. “This is the Hamptons,” one of them shouted, pumping his fist in the air.

NO MORE TOKENS May 15 was the last day that old subway tokens could be brought to the token booths and exchanged for the new swipe cards. Some people on May 16 brought buckets and buckets of still more tokens and just angrily left them on the subway platform for people to trip over. Get over it, people.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALBRECHT SPEER Last Wednesday was the 100th birthday of Albrecht Speer, the classy German architect who designed our headquarters building in Hampton Bays in 1937. He did his best work in Berlin in those years. This is the only work he did in America, a project made from granite imported from Germany just moments before World War II broke out.

COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE I know I promised this week I would tell the full story about how I was able to snooker Mayor Bloomberg of New York into buying back the New York City subway system he had sold me last fall for $1. But now my agent tells me he’s sold my account as a book, with the movie rights gone to the Weinstein Brothers, so my mouth is sealed. All monies I make will go into the coffers of Hampton Subway, after I take my cut, of course. SUBWAY FRANCHISE NAME A big problem on Hamptons Subway is that the restaurant chain Subway has units on all the platforms for the hungry straphangers. There is confusion when saying, “I’m going to the Subway,” because of this, but the Commissioner is steadfast that we have to continue to call them that.

Routine Stop best best of the

A routine stop in Southampton lead to the arrest of a man who was in possession of brass knuckles, marijuana, hash, a scale and packaging material. The guy tried the old Jedi mind trick when officers discovered the drugs by waving his hand across the officer’s face and stating, “These aren’t the drugs you’re looking for.” It didn’t work.

The Town of East Hampton has been considering using bow hunting as a method of controlling the deer population and just yesterday, they got a letter from PETA asking them not to do that. PETA suggested to the Town that they use other methods such as scare tactics to control deer populations, which included using loud radios and water sprinklers. I’m almost always in favor of PETA and their recommendations for animals. But the deer population is out of control and bow hunting helps control them. Water sprinklers? Is this a joke? I don’t mean to sound harsh, but people bow hunt. It’s a nice activity and when deer are shot and tracked, I’d say 90% of the time the hunter is able to track it down. To me, fishing and deer hunting are in the same category.

For Conscience Sake... What Did the First Settler Mean to Say as She Came Ashore in Southampton? By Dan Rattiner


ll my life, I have wondered about the first words uttered by the first English settler who came ashore at Southampton. There is a big boulder marking the spot on the beach in North Sea where these first settlers waded ashore in 1640. This place is called Conscience Point. “For conscience sake, we are on dry land once more,” were the first words spoken, reportedly by a woman. Has this statement ever bothered you? It bothered me. I have no idea what this statement means. And I wondered, did she? She was feeling something about it, that’s for sure. Over all these years, I never looked this up. I guessed “for conscience sakes” was some kind of Pilgrim talk. It was some religious thing, some hocus pocus. Of course they knew what it meant. But it was 1640 and people talked in this stilted way. All you have to do is read books written from that time. Here are the facts. In the spring of 1640, in the port town of Lynn, Massachusetts just north of Boston, a group of several dozen people, a little put off by the strict religious codes of the dominant group of Puritans and also apparently feeling the town was getting a

little too crowded for the farming they wanted to do, met and decided to settle another part of the New World. There were about 30 of them. At the time, both the Puritans and the King of England were urging settlers to explore and make new settlements. You could get a patent to settle a piece of land from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. These 30 men and women applied for one and only a few weeks after their application, were granted one by the Earl of Sterling for eight square miles of land “to make their choice to sitt downe upon as best suiteth them,” the document read. At the time, the Dutch had settled what is now New York City and Queens. The new English colony would be a counterpoint to the east. The Puritans set out in a 40-foot sloop owned by Daniel Howe, and they headed out around Cape Cod, went south and then west into Long Island Sound, and then landed on the North Shore of Long Island­ —not far, as it horribly turned out, from a Dutch settlement there at Schout’s Bay. The Dutch arrested the English settlers as soon as they got off the boat and put them in jail. A few days later, after some negotiations, the Dutch freed the English as long as they promised to leave on their boat and never come back. As a result, they (Continued on next page.)

Conscience (Continued from previous page.) sailed back across the Sound to New Haven where, getting a new patent, they regrouped and headed out once again, this time toward somewhere further east on Long Island. Their new charter granted them “all those lands lying and being bounded between Peaconneck and the easternmost point of Long Island with the whole breadth of the said island from sea to sea.” This was quite a charter, though it was modified soon after to exclude all of what is now East Hampton Town because Lion Gardner and his wife, children and servants had gone to live there. And so the sloop sailed again, this time tucking in south of the North Fork of eastern Long Island and near what is now Shelter Island to land in this place which they referred to as North Sea and which we now call “Conscience Point.” The trip had taken 17 hours from Lynn. They slid up on the beach in a small boat, at which point this woman said her famous line. It is not clear, after this, whether the local Indians, the Shinnecocks, met them on the beach there, or met them soon after. In any case, the Shinnecocks, a peaceful people, exchanged gifts with them, and then led them down a long trail—today this is North Sea Road— to a clearing inland where they suggested the Englishmen settle. The Shinnecocks either helped them or showed them how to dig deep trenches over which they could place trees and bushes to brace themselves for when they could expect the cold winter. It was July, 1640. While researching all this, I also looked up whether anybody said anything at the more

famous landing by the English at Plymouth, 20 years before. There is a boulder there announcing it as the first English settlement in New England. But what I learned was that this was not actually where the English first landed, and it was very likely that where they first landed they were too miserable to have anything interesting to say. It was late at night and it was raining.


hose pilgrims, more than 102 of them in a bigger boat called the Mayflower, had first waded ashore at what is now Provincetown on Cape Cod. When they first arrived before any of them rowed in, they dropped anchor to think about things. They could see the land. They could see there was nobody on it. And, as it happened, the passengers, all of whom had agreed to become indentured servants to the captain and crew for seven years, started talking about rebellion. Why should they agree to servitude now? They were here, way beyond the jurisdiction of England. They were many more in number than the colonel who led them and the ship’s crew. They wanted to be relieved of their indenture. The end of this conversation resulted in the captain and crew and the religious leader of the expedition drawing up what was called the “Mayflower Compact” which basically reconfirmed what the original agreement said, but with less stringent terms. Everybody signed. Then they came ashore. Here are the notes from their leader William Bradford, who was the second governor of Plymouth Colony after John

Carver died, about this: “...though it was very dark and rained sore, yet in the end they got under the lee of a small island [Clark’s Island] and remained there all that night in safety... And this being the last day of the week, they prepared there to keep the Sabbath. On Monday they sounded the harbor and found it fit for shipping, and marched into the land and found divers cornfield, and little running brooks, a place (as they supposed) fit for situation.” At least it was the best they could find. They also could see that the land circled around a vast bay. All they needed to do was follow it around to the other end where, perhaps, they might find something better than the sandy soil they were on. They sent out an exploration party. At First Encounter Beach in Eastham they were attacked by the local Wampanoag tribe, which came with bows and arrows. When the pilgrims returned with musketfire, some of the Indians fell to the ground and the rest ran away. And then they sailed the Mayflower across to what became Plymouth, and that is what became their first settlement. According to the dictionary, the word “conscience” is defined as having “a sense of right and wrong.” There is a phrase in the dictionary, “In all or good conscience,” which is defined as “what you are saying is truly the case.” There are other definitions, but I think this one is the probable fit. In other words, she was saying “It is truly the case that we are back on dry land again.” And they were.

Big Fish A New World Record for Rod and Reel Is Again Awarded to Montauk By Dan Rattiner


ontauk has more world Rod and Reel fishing records than any other fishing town in the world. And now there is another one. Last Friday, angler Thomas Cleveland, a mechanical engineer from Bay Shore, went out with his friend Dave Singleton aboard the Montauk Lady captained by Fred Shore and his mate Bob Adams. Then went to Coxes Ledge, 30 miles from Montauk. “We were fishing for Blues,” Captain Shore later said. “But then I saw this group of monster guppies basking in the sun along the surface. I’d never seen anything like this before. “I immediately had the mate replace the reels on the rods, using new reels with a smaller gauge line I had on hand,” said Shore. “I saw right away this was extraordinary. I looked up

guppy in the rulebook. You couldn’t enter one with any line stronger than a 10-pound test.” Captain Shore excitedly talked to Cleveland about what was going on, Cleveland and Singleton talked and it was decided Cleveland would make the attempt. “You take it,” Singleton said. “I’ll watch.” Captain Shore then had his mate put a worm on the hook, turned the wheel so Montauk Lady would drift sharply to port, and then motored over very slowly to get close without, he hoped, frightening the guppies. Cleveland stood in front of his fighting chair, made a long cast with the smaller rod, then a second cast, then a third and the finally, one of the guppies wiggled over and took a bite. “We got him!” Cleveland said. “It’s huge.” Cleveland then took two steps back, settled down in the fighting chair and strapped himself in.

This particular guppy, however, was a fighter. Although no longer than six inches—most guppies are about one half inch—he’d make these spectacular leaps out of the water, shimmying and shaking his sparkling gold body in the sunshine, trying to get free. Cleveland hung on. Twenty minutes later, the Captain phoned Uihlein’s Boat Rental to alert Henry of what was going on. The Captain said he hoped they’d have the guppy within the hour, and that they would, with luck, be in by 4 p. m. After that, the word went out. Record fish coming in to Uihlien’s. The whole town began to head down there. Cleveland fought this guppy for more than an hour and a half. “It was exhausting,” he later told everybody back at the dock. “He’d race off one way, then race off another. I’d pull him in, then have to let him (Continued on next page.)

Fast Food, Obesity and My Mother By Dan Rattiner


eople have asked me how I like our new Dan’s Papers offices on County Road 39 in Southampton. They are much more spacious and new. In recent years in Bridgehampton, we had been operating with 35 or 40 people out of this two-bedroom house. It was difficult. Now, with new projects, with our expanded web presence, with our magazines, event division and with our other new ventures, we just didn’t have room anymore. This is a huge plus for us. On the other hand there are some minuses. I miss Bridgehampton. I have a longer commute from my home in East Hampton—10 minutes. But these are really just

minor inconveniences. The biggest minus for me, towering over all, is fast food. This is a really loopy story, much more complicated than you might think. It involves mild hypochondria, hot fudge sundaes, doctor’s offices, a law in East Hampton Town that turns out not to be there, Southampton Hospital and my childhood. For starters, I will remind people that County Road 39, better as it is for a business environment, is not Main Street, Bridgehampton. In Bridgehampton, the closest places where we could eat were Bobby Van’s, the Candy Kitchen, Pierre’s and World Pie, institutions all. In Southampton, the closest places to eat are Burger King, Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonalds and the 7-Eleven. This is a problem.

When I was a boy in school growing up, my parents would be very proud of me if I won a spelling contest or gave a successful recital on the piano which, as a boy, I studied. After the event, they’d take me to a restaurant where they had hot fudge sundaes. I would be told that was my reward. I was free to modify it— butterscotch sauce for example or make it into a banana split—but I so remember my parents looking at me proudly—as I scarfed down this special treat. Now the third part of this is how I am taking care of myself healthwise today. Like many people who want to stay on top of things, I see a lot of doctors. I have pains here and I have pains there. The other (Continued on next page.)

Guppy (Continued from previous page.) back out.” The rest of the guppies had fled the scene as a result of all the commotion so it was either this one or nothing. One hour later, the guppy began to tire, and 10 minutes after that, Cleveland got him alongside where mate Adams, with a deft hand, was able to scoop the fish up in a net and bring him on board. But then the guppy leaped out of the net and began flopping around on the deck. It was a little frightening. Cleveland, and Singleton with him, scrambled below to get out of the way, leaving the Captain and the mate to struggle to get the guppy under control. When the Montauk Lady came through the jetties at 4 p.m. with the four men beaming and raising their fists aloft in triumph, the crowd on shore responded with cheers and applause.

A hush fell over the crowd as Captain Shore, Marina owner Henry Uihlein and two mates carried the guppy, now dead, ashore in a bucket and put him on the scale. People gathered around. Reporters were there from all the local papers, also newsmen from Channel 12 and Channel 55. “The weight is…” intoned Henry Uihlein, “0.641 pounds.” People cheered and danced around. “It is 2.4 inches long and 0.8 inches round.” A string was attached to the tail of the fish and it was hoisted up on a crane. It glistened in the sun. Cleveland stood next to the fish with his rod and reel, on the other side stood Uihlein and Singleton. “What are you going to do with the fish?” a


reporter asked Cleveland. “Have it stuffed and mounted, of course,” he said. “It’s not every day you get to catch a world record fish.” All that has to happen now is for the International Game Fishing Association to approve the record. The current record for guppy is 0.0522 pounds, posted by Guy Enrenrouk of Capetown, South Africa on December 12, 1966. Bye bye, Capetown.

Food (Continued from previous page.) day I hurt my knee. Banged it into something. Jeremy Lin had a torn meniscus and had to have an operation on his knee. What if I had a torn meniscus? If I don’t attend to it, it will get worse. I could have a limp for the rest of my life. I’ve got to do something about this. Now I make no apologies for having this attitude toward my body. It surely does swing toward hypochondria, but then again, it gets things done. With some anxiety, I call my orthopedist to make an appointment. Now here’s the thing. Practically all my doctors have their offices clustered around Southampton Hospital. It makes sense. If they need to go to the hospital to see a patient, there they are. And here’s another thing. For 20 years or more, it’s been the belief of people in East Hampton that fast food restaurants are verboten in this town. We are an historic town. We want to keep it that way. During my long tenure with this newspaper, I know of several occasions where fast food places have been in the works, but every time they never even get to the point of making an application. They are told of the law and they go away. Now it turns out that such a law does not exist in this town. A 7-Eleven opened in Montauk last year. Montauk is part of East Hampton Town. The Town emptied their pockets. They looked everywhere. They couldn’t come up with this so-called law. But this is no never mind. It’s been 20 years that we have not had fast food in East Hampton. And though I am happy for that, it is true that every once in awhile, maybe once a month, I get into some sort of stressful situation, call it a sugar rush if you will, and I get this craving for fast food. I see those golden arches. But they are too far away to get to. So I live without. Which is probably why though I may be a bit pudgy, I do not suffer from the national affliction of obesity. Now let us, you and I, put this all together and what happens? Well, when I leave my doctor’s office with the good news that my fear of a permanent limp is not going to come about, I feel elation. It was stressful going in to the doctor. Now it is cause for elation coming out. And celebration! And so it has been that for the last 20 years, every time I have gone to one of my doctors, I have, discovering all my worry was for nothing and all the fast food joints are right at hand, I skip out to my car and drive straight to McDonalds for a Big Mac, French fries, an ice cream sundae and any other thing I can pack in. It’s my reward! A big feast for having dodged the bullet! As a matter of fact I have all this in mind when I leave my house in East Hampton! Hi, mom. Hi, dad. I DID it!

The Rowers I’ve Heard of “Not in My Backyard,” but “Not in That Nearby Cove?” By Dan koontz


owing, or crew, is a sport that for many carries the faint tinge of elitism. Perhaps we lump it in with polo and sailing, sports that seem designed for people with large bank accounts. We picture privileged Ivy League rowers in their pricey preppy regalia, and figure we’re better off supplying our children with a bat and a ball. We ask ourselves where kids go to learn the sport, and we assume it’s some fancy resort that only high rollers know about. Finally, if we see a crew rowing out on the water, we may develop the idea that rowing is more of a recreation than an athletic activity—a pleasant diversion for wealthy people to engage in when they’re not eating caviar, getting massaged, or buying Rolls-Royces. From a distance, when you can’t see the sweat or strain, rowing can

look rather like a pastime. This, we might tell ourselves, is not a real sport. Our boy should play football instead. Thanks to Sag Harbor Community Rowing (SHCR), all of the possible misconceptions about rowing are coming to an end. Founded in 2008, Sag Harbor Community Rowing has rowing shells (outsiders would call them boats), oars, life preservers, and instruction for rowers from beginners to advanced. They are located at Cove Park in Sag Harbor, which is on Redwood Road, at a spot that provides the only good public place to launch a racing shell into the cove. Forget the need for a trust fund. For a membership fee of only $250 (or only $125 for children 10 – 17), members can use the equipment from May 1 through November 15 during daylight hours. For those without

prior experience, Community Rowing provides instructors on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and on Saturday mornings from 7:30 to 9 a.m. More experienced rowers can also frequently find partners to row in a double if they come at these times. Now that the price is right, how can you get your kids more intensive instruction? Do they need an invitation from the Queen? No! Sag Harbor Community Rowing has that covered with their Summer Rowing Camps. Each week from June 25 through August 31, kids nine and older can participate in morning or afternoon sessions where they will learn balance and technique for moving the boat through the water with efficiency and skill.

The Saving of Poxabogue Golf Course By Dan Rattiner


outhampton Town bought out East Hampton Town’s half share in the Poxabogue Golf Club last week. Southampton now owns the whole thing. This is a happy ending to a long and interesting story about this public golf course that sits wholly within Southampton Town but within a three wood of East Hampton. It’s a story about greed, death, golf, sex and lies. No, actually, it’s just the first three. But it’s good enough. The golf course, which is nine holes, was originally built back in the 1930s because the local farmers and merchants, and also the tourists, could not play golf at the private clubs built by the rich. It was a small potato farm

originally. Actually, it was not really enough land for nine holes. So they built six par 3 holes and three par 4 holes. Voila. Nine holes. Around 1965, the family that built it improved the property. Originally there had been a small building where you could pay the $5 bucks to play, rent some balls and perhaps some clubs. Now there was a new building. About a quarter of it became the place to rent and pay. The rest of it became a luncheonette, today famously run by Danny Murray. Golfers could eat both before and after a round. In the mid-1990s, the woman who had inherited Poxabogue from her parents lay on her deathbed. She was approached by three Hamptons millionaires who, through intermediaries, offered her $1 million for it. She

didn’t sell, but after her death, the estate sold it to them. One of these buyers really wanted to continue the club, or so it seemed to me at the time covering this story as it unfolded. The other two wanted to either put up a 45-house housing development or, if that scared everybody— Poxabogue was a real recreational plus for the community—force some person or group to take it over to save it from a horrible fate as a housing development. In terms used by developers, this is called “flipping” a property. The developers made lots of noises about what they wanted to do. They did, to their credit, spend a lot of money to improve the club in the second year of their ownership. They brought in a pro. They (Continued on page 34.)

Junior Championships, three of their boats picked up medals and others placed very well against a large number of crews. It seems reasonable to assume that, if it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for Sag Harbor Community Rowing, these young people would never have even heard of crew, much less become involved in it. Especially for a small school like Pierson, the availability of a sport like rowing means that students have an opportunity to be active and gain strength even if they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t great at swinging a bat. By bringing this less familiar sport to the area, Sag Harbor Community Rowing is doing a great thing for the local youth.


ecently, however, while there have been no complaints and everybody agrees that Sag Harbor Community Rowing is a great asset to local kids, there has been some question as to whether the village would allow them to remain at Cove Park. Sag Harbor Mayor Brian Gilbride, in particular, has expressed his feeling that Cove Park may be too small to accommodate the numbers of children now involved. This position puts the program in jeopardy, because the boats are extremely â&#x20AC;&#x153;tippyâ&#x20AC;?, to use a landlubberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s term, and they need calm, protected water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the kind that you only find in the coves. Trying to launch a racing single at Havens Beach, which has been suggested as an alternative location, would be a recipe for capsizing, not to mention the dangers involved with heavier boat traffic in the harbor

area. In order to draw attention to the situation, dozens of young rowers appeared at last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sag Harbor Village Board meeting, and a select group made prepared remarks. While Sag Harbor Community Rowingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lease on Cove Park is not currently up for review, the young peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show of support for the program seems to have softened Mayor Gilbrideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position somewhat. He was quoted in The Sag Harbor Express as saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the owner can stay under the radar and the club doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grow much larger I think they will be fine at Cove Park.â&#x20AC;?

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Going to Make a Fortune with My Friend Andy Warhole By mr. sniev

am always coming up with ideas on how to make money. Some of them havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t panned out but I will not be deterred. This one is a sure thing! I was watching the news the other day and there was a story about how a guy named Andy Fields bought five paintings at a Las Vegas garage sale for $5. When he decided to reframe them he discovered an original Andy Warhol sketch hidden behind one of them. It has been reported to be valued at more than $1 million. That is quite fortunate for Fields but maybe even more fortunate for me, as it gave me a brilliant money-making idea. The 1963 Warhol canvas titled Eight Elvises fetched $100 million. The private transaction was reported in a 2009 article in The Economist, which described Warhol as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bellwether of the art marketâ&#x20AC;? Warholâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s works include some of the most expensive paintings ever sold. Most East Enders are aware that many years ago, Mr. Warhol along with a group of other artists made Montauk their home away from home. In a way they actually helped put Montauk on the map. What many donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know is that Warhol was born on August 6, 1928, the youngest son of Ondrej and Julia Warhola (not Ondrej and Julia Warhol.) The East End is still known for its artists and art aficionados so I am going to take advantage of that fact and open an Andy Warhole Gallery. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right, Andy Warhole. Mr. Warhole is



a local guy I found through the Internet. His name is spelled differently than Warhol or Warhola, but close enough to confuse people. Mr. Warholeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s principal employment is that of an animal psychologist, providing services to local celebrities, whose animals have emotional issues. Animal suicide attempts have been down the last few years so his business has been slow. He was more than willing, for a 50% ownership position, to lend his name to the Gallery. I think people are so busy they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize the difference in the spelling of the names (Warhole vs. Warhol) and will visit the

studio. I have convinced the owner of an awesome building in Montauk to dedicate the Warhole Gallery Space rent-free, for a 45% ownership position. I have already contacted a leading Manhattan Publicist who is willing to promote the Gallery for a 15% ownership. I will be offering Dan a 10% ownership as compensation for advertising in Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Papers. I have agreed to a 20% ownership with a major East End Celebrity, in return for an endorsement and to be present at the Gallery Opening and future events. I will also be donating a 20% ownership to The Montauk Starving Artist Fund. As for the artwork I will be selling, I recently ran across a computer program that can take any scanned picture and convert the image to one that is Warholesque. It takes 10 minutes for me to create a one-of-akind 8.5 x 11 inch Warhole. So that means I can do six an hour. I intend to sell them for slightly less than what a real Warhol would sell for. And so quite possibly, just by virtue of the fact that some guy happened across a genuine Warhol at a garage sale in Las Vegas, I may now have a mega-million dollar enterprise that will offer me financial stability for life. Thanks Mr. Warhol and Mr. Warhole. The only other thing I need to do is find a good accountant, as I am not very good calculating numbers or percentages. Note: If for some reason the Warhole Gallery doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out, I also have a lead on an Italian guy in The North Fork with the last name of Picazzo. Sounds like Picasso.

Poxy (Continuted from page 31.) the cost and ownership of the purchase. And so, in March 2004, they jointly bought the golf course to save it. Until this latest turn of events, the two have owned it jointly, setting it up as a small business with the two entities hiring a management to run it. An interesting development happened in 2007. In that year, the people living in Sagaponack created a village they wanted to carve out from the Town of Southampton. It would include Poxabogue. The people in that community voted almost unanimously to have that happen, and so it did. So now you had a golf course owned by two towns within a village. Now, the two towns owned it. The impetus for Southampton buying out East Hampton’s half was the discovery several years ago that

groomed the golf course beautifully though they jacked up the rates to play a round about fivefold to cover that cost. They spruced up the driving range. Their proposal to put in an “environmentally positive” miniature golf course near the driving range got everybody talking, mostly about how they would hate that. The crowds would come. It would be lit at night. Help! So flip it they did. The sellers wanted $6.5 million for it—to what should have been the Town of Southampton. But Southampton said this was a pretty steep price to pay. They also noticed that since the course was practically on the town line with East Hampton, many golfers came from that town. In the end, they persuaded a free-spending Town of East Hampton to split

that old supervisor in East Hampton had been going on a spending spree with CPF money, that was intended to be used only for open land preservation. East Hampton was in big trouble. Southampton is, essentially, helping East Hampton in the bail out. The towns had the golf course appraised, of course. It came back at about $4.4 million, down $1 million from the good old days before the real estate crash. So Southampton has to pay East Hampton $2.2 million. In researching this story, a number of interesting things about the arrangement between East Hampton and Southampton here at the golf course have come up. Turns out that in their arrangement, either town could have sold its half to another entity. It would have been an unlikely event, but consider that if it did, you might have to pay one fee to play holes two, seven and eight, and another fee to play the other holes, except maybe for the ninth hole which would be for the personal use of the new half-owner and his family. Another odd thing is that Southampton Town at the time the club was purchased from the developers, got the money to pay them by legally dipping into the 2% Community Preservation Fund money, thus actually saving half the course from ever being developed. East Hampton Town did not do the same. They borrowed the money, long term at pretty high interest rates. East Hampton will not only get the $2.2 million for their half share, they will also look to recover some of the course’s revenue, which is specifically used for course maintenance. These amounts will enable the new East Hampton Town Supervisor, the new broom sweeping clean, to be able to pay off that bond in the next few years and thus avoid about $288,000 in interest fees they would otherwise have to pay over the years. Southampton is also now in a position to charge less to town taxpayers for the use of the course than for “out of towners” which could include East Hamptonites—and even Sagaponackers. Hopefully that won’t happen. Right? Did I mention that Southampton golfers are better than East Hampton golfers?

ast Hampton Village is changing. They call them “smart” illuminated crosswalks. And for good reason. They work. In-roadway lighting “became a reality in the United States in the early 90’s,” according to an article in Public Roads Magazine, a bi-monthly periodical by the Federal Highway Administration, called “Seeing crosswalks in a new light…” focusing on a town in Alexandria, Virginia, that installed such “smart” crosswalks to light dark pedestrian crossings. The research began in 1978, and observing what was already a success in Israel, researchers found accidents lessened as a direct result of a lighted passage to the other side of the street. Virginia has them. Washington state has them, Florida, New Jersey, California, the town of Brookhaven on Long Island, and now the Hamptons. I dare say we need them.

Roads Magazine states crash statistics for 2001 the lights. Others work on sensors that are involving pedestrians. “In the United States, a automatically activated when a person steps pedestrian was injured every seven minutes, into the crosswalk. Ultimately the responsibility on average, and one pedestrian was killed every lies with the pedestrian and the drivers. The 108 minutes.” That sounds like a good enough pedestrian lights up the crosswalk, the driver reason to consider the safety of our Village stops because the crosswalk and pedestrian citizens and visitors.

A new addition to East Hampton’s Main Street.

The work to install them, you may have noticed, has been under way. On Main Street in East Hampton Village, on Huntting Lane and the Circle. Two very dangerous places at night (and day!) to cross, what is, as Larry Cantwell, East Hampton Village Administrator so aptly put it, “a four-lane highway.” We must take into consideration that pedestrians must push a button to light up the crosswalk, and drivers must stop when they see a person crossing. “Each must watch out for the other,” Cantwell said. “It is a good thing, but it is not a cure-all.” Executive Director of East Hampton Chamber of Commerce, Marina Van, says. “The lighted crosswalks are very needed. At night when you try to cross, the car in the first lane may see you, but does the second lane driver? Not always.” This is a daytime problem too, that can be solved if two things are done. Pedestrians must look carefully before they begin to cross. And drivers in the Village should slow down. A third idea is a good one too. “People crossing need to be visible. They are in dark colors and you can’t see them step out,” said Bob Bovee, of Park Place Wines and Liquors. Yes, so true. Now they will be illuminated by the lighted crosswalks. The Department of Transportation is installing them. The Village will pay the electricity. I hope we can see this idea expand to the entire town. You cannot sacrifice people’s safety in busy summer season just because this is considered “the country.” Main Street is also a highway out here. This became clear when a pedestrian was hit by a car in one of those crosswalks in the Village. The article in Public

Dan’s Papers Susan Saiter reports from the field that an afternoon of sumptuous house-viewing and a gorgeous spring afternoon made The Third Annual Insider’s View of Southampton Homes a success for the Southampton Historical Museum on May 12. Super-friendly guides chock-full of great details on history and decorating guided visitors through such treasures as a classic Hamptons beach house with a view that goes on forever in Water Mill. Sculptor Marsia Holzer (whose studio is in Tribeca) hooked arms with guests, leading them through her secluded, “wild and beachy” house decorated with her furniture and art creations, “driftwoody stuff,” sometimes covered in aluminum, like a lamp set by the ocean view reflecting the gorgeous sky and water colors.

t is always disconcerting to realize that there are sociopaths in our midst. You know they’re statistically impossible to avoid: hopefully your encounters with them will remain brief and uneventful. But the painful truth is that there are people walking amongst us who spent their childhoods wetting the bed and torturing small animals. It seems that one of those people has recently visited Montauk’s once-pristine beaches, taking their trademark chainsaw along for the ride. A few years ago, one of several wonderful pieces of public art surfaced on our shores. Using one of the scarce and beautiful driftwood logs conditioned by the sea as a canvas, a humble artist took the time to etch carvings of footprints, Celtic symbols, and a calligraphy rendition of the word “Montauk” into it for all to enjoy. It was a warm and giving act of kindness that countless beach goers stopped in their travels to smile upon—a true example of the beauty that so rarely occurs when humanity and nature collide. For years, the log, which was located on the beach near the IGA, was revered by locals and tourists alike. It was climbed upon and prodded at by children, rested upon by lovers and dreamers and other people who are drawn to the curious stretch of sand that marks where the land ends and the ocean begins. The log was the site of countless photo shoots, so that anyone could easily take away an image of our beloved Montauk to cherish for years to come. Just last year, I took a lovely set of pictures of my pregnant sister and her little family crawling all over the log. And guess what? I managed to do it without screwing it up for everyone else by defiling the log and the beach and the people who live here by cutting out the pretty parts with a chainsaw. I will be the first to admit that I was a terrible girl scout. I was asked not to come back to Brownies after a few meetings because I thought scouting was supposed to be about learning how to tie knots and playing in the woods, and all they seemed to want to do was make dolls out of ice cream sticks and stay as far away from the woods as possible. I did come away with something though— the old scouting mantra, “take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints.” And while I’ve been known to scoop my share of beach glass and driftwood, I’ve kept the phrase close enough to my heart in my adult life to remember that you don’t take the footprints, particularly if they were carved in driftwood by an artist for all to enjoy. Public art by its nature disappears in time. Sand mandalas take to the wind and chalk drawings are washed away by the rain. But there was a certain permanence to this particular treasure, and a certain pride we took in its existence. It said something about who we are as a people, the Montaukett tribe. And now, sadly, it says something about what is happening to said tribe, and how our fears of extinction are realized daily, in subtle and not -so-subtle ways. Because some vile person— and I use the term “person” loosely, mind you— had the gall and nerve to hack those beautiful carvings straight out of the driftwood. Now we

rammy Award-winning ­­­­­s i n g e r / s o n g w r i t e r Suzanne Vega is about to take her show on the road. Following her recent concert dates in the New York area, including the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center in February, Vega will be performing at a variety of international venues, bringing her cool brand of selfdescribed â&#x20AC;&#x153;techno-folkâ&#x20AC;? to fans from Istanbul to London, with stops throughout Europe. Her current mission has been to revisit her entire careerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, re-recording and reinterpreting songs from a more-than 25-year career on four new albums, which are collectively titled the Close Up Series. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave much time for Vega to enjoy her Amagansett home, but the beach will just have to wait for the singer, whose voice has been described by the New York Timesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stephen Holden as having â&#x20AC;&#x153;an inviolable purity of heart tinged with mystery.â&#x20AC;? ­­ â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minimal, but not entirely folksy,â&#x20AC;? Vega says of the Close Up Series. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is still a great amount of production and there are some alternative elements.â&#x20AC;? Vega was born in Santa Monica, California. Her parents divorced shortly after Vega was born, and her mother married Ed Vega, a writer and teacher. The family moved to New York when Vega was just two-years-old. Some of her earliest music influences were Laura Nyro, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. All were artists that her parents enjoyed listening to as well. She was writing poetry by the age of nine, and penning songs by age 14, but she also had other interests outside the music sphere. For example, Vega studied modern dance at the legendary High School of Performing Arts, now known as LaGuardia High School. After graduation, Vega went on to study English Literature at Barnard College, where she originally intended to become a dancer. She quickly changed her focus to music when she realized that she was enthralled by musicians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I realized that it was my fate to be in the


Village where there was a flourishing folk music scene, and participating in a songwriterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group at the Cornelia Street CafĂŠ. In 1984, Vega landed a recording contract with a major label and a year later released her first album. She shot a video for the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marlena on the Wall,â&#x20AC;? which was played on MTV and VH1. Vega had already developed a signature styleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;acoustic guitar, simple arrangements and a voice that was chilll and confident. Her look, bohemian cool, a cross between Joni Mitchell and Audrey Hepburn, was unique and unmistakable. While Vegaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first album garnered critical praise, it was her second offering two years laterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Solitude Standingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; that gave her two of her most successful songs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lukaâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diner.â&#x20AC;? Focusing on unusual subject matter for a pop song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lukaâ&#x20AC;? was the story of an abused child, told from his point of view. Vegaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understated vocal delivery and unornamented style were a perfect match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lukaâ&#x20AC;? became one of the top songs of 1987, in a time period not known for restraint in either vocal performance or music production. Other Top 10 hits of that year were Poisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Talk Dirty to Meâ&#x20AC;? and Whitesnakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here I Go Again.â&#x20AC;? Yet â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lukaâ&#x20AC;? was a huge hit for Vega, and was even referenced years later in an episode of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Simpsons,â&#x20AC;? as Homer breaks out into the opening lines of the song while driving. Another bit of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lukaâ&#x20AC;? trivia links the tune to â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sopranos.â&#x20AC;? Actor Jackie Cerbone, who as a child played Luka in the music video, later played Jackie Aprile, Jr. on the acclaimed HBO series. The idea for the song had come to Vega as she watched a group of children playing on a city street. Also from the Solitude Standing album, the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dinerâ&#x20AC;? encapsulates everything that is the essential Vega. It is a song that captures with almost photographic accuracy a New York coffee shop on a rainy morning. Vega wrote the song about a real New York coffee shop, Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant, that was also (Continued on next page.) used for exterior

can’t say if this has anything to do with being from the city, or if it’s simply a representation of the vile side of human nature. One would like to believe that the “person” responsible for ruining the beach party for everyone else was decked out in a pair of madras shorts and a fedora —but reasonably speaking, what is the likelihood that such a person would be capable of operating a chainsaw? Perhaps they sent one of their minions out to do their bidding. Or perhaps there is a horrible hollow person living among us. With. A. Chainsaw. Christ.

And what does this empty-souled individual tell his friends when they inquire about the chiseled log he had the help so neatly display over the mantel of the summer home he probably occupies only two months out of the year? “Oh, Buffy, where did you get that beautiful driftwood carving? You must have commissioned someone to create it, it is just divine.” “Actually I ripped it off from the people of Montauk, and now it’s MINE. Best part is it was free! Aren’t I a swell guy?” The bottom line is there was only one entity that could have taken that log without pissing anyone off. It was just light enough to be slowly rolled and shuffled along the shore by years of storm surge. If the sea had reclaimed it, it would

herefore, I have come to the conclusion that the sociopath responsible for this unthinkable act has directly violated the ocean. Do you hear that, crazy pants? The ocean is pissed at you. So if a great big storm surge knocks your big ol’ beach house right into the water, or perhaps one day you find yourself drowning, know you this as you sink towards the bottom: Don’t piss off the ocean. And don’t mess with Montauk.

He felt that the warm timbre of Vega’s voice, undisguised by accompaniment, would make a perfect model for the sound compression algorithm that he had to create. This wasn’t the only experiment in sound engineering that involved Vega. She joined a group of students from Bay State College at Thomas Edison National Historic Park in West Orange, New Jersey for a demonstration of early sound recording. This time, “Tom’s Diner” was captured not in an MP3 file, but on a wax cylinder, in the exact same method as were the very first sound recordings.

uring the ‘90s, Vega continued to record and release albums. She also branched out into literature, publishing a collection of poems, lyrics and essays entitled The Passionate Eye: The Collected Writings Of Suzanne Vega. Vega embarked on another venture during this time: marriage and motherhood. Daughter Ruby Froom was born in 1994. Vega married musician and record producer Mitchell Froom. He had produced two of Vega’s albums, 99.9F and Nine Objects of Desire. Ruby has performed with her mother on occasion, including during an appearance a few years ago at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett. It was also during this time that Vega fell in love with the East End. She had come out to see an alternative rock band, They Might Be Giants, and was staying at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor. Vega fell for the charm of the area and eventually bought a home in Amagansett. “It’s beautiful, quiet, off the beaten path,” says Vega of Amagansett. “I’ve had spells where I write out here.” Vega is continuing to branch out in her art. Together with Duncan Sheik, the composer of Spring Awakening, she co-wrote a play with music entitled Carson McCullers Talks About Love. The play premiered in 2011. Vega and Sheik have performed together in Las Vegas as well, where reviewer Anthony Del Valle commented that it was a “relaxing evening…full of acute observation and richly understated sound.”

Billy Joel on a Motorcycle in Southampton gave his girlfriend another hug, and as if he was a high school senior, got back on his motorcycle, revved up the engine and rumbled off down Main Street, into the nothingness. I started to think about how many people saw him like I just did and whether or not it was going to become tabloid news that he was in the Hamptons over the weekend, but t hen I realized that it doesn’t matter what they say in the papers cause it’s always been the same old scene. I had my iPod on me, and immediately fired up the song, “Movin’ Out” and set the volume to the highest level. I continued walking the dog down Main Street and realized that there were a ton of errands that I needed to take care of before I got back home. It’s funny how you have so much to do but only so many hours in a day. I’m young enough to still see the passionate guy that I used to be, but I’m old enough to say I got a good look at the other side. The truth is that we have to work real hard, maybe even for the rest of our lives. So for me, taking a moment to see Billy Joel in the street is pretty cool. When I got home, I was pretty tired from the day, so I went to sleep with the television on.

What’s in My Salad Bowl This Week... Despite having grown up in farm country, I’ve never been much of a gardener. I have whatever the opposite of a green thumb is—a purple pinky? I lay claim to the dubious distinction of having once killed a spider plant. Nothing can kill those things...except for me. I figure it was either a case of extreme neglect or the little guy overheard me barking at a telemarketer who called my home at dinnertime. That could make anything wither. But, as my husband is fond of teasing me, I am a farmers market groupie. So last month I attended the Small Farm Summit at Hofstra University with many of my farmer friends. It was edifying to learn that many edible plants grow in the wild on Long Island. I trundled off on a group nature walk with The Natural Nurse at the event. She assured us that dandelion greens have a place at the table, as she munched on some Japanese knotweed. I remain wary of the flavor of dandelion greens due to an early, BAD experience—but I might sprinkle in some dandelion petals. Back at home, I set about concocting a “local” salad. I nabbed some woodland sorrel—a weed that I grew up calling “shamrock.” I snipped off two tiny sprigs of mint—that stuff grows all over Sag Harbor. I’ll even throw in some rose petals when they come out. Someone who lived on our property many years ago left a legacy of rootstock roses—small and white.

In addition to the weeds growing in the cracks in the pavement around my home, I had a few garden successes to add to the bowl.

My store-bought pansies are thriving—I threw in a bunch of their colorful blossoms. I was sorely tempted to throw in a pea shoot or two because they’re so fun to munch on when they’re young and tender. But of the many peas I planted this season only two “shot.” I figured I better leave those two alone and pray for peas. You can plant peas and some varieties of beans several times throughout the season because they grow so quickly. It’d be nice to have some pea plants for shoots and some for peas…when I dream, I dream big. We’ve had oregano growing outdoors for several years—so some of that went in. I wouldn’t think of putting in any of the other hardy survivor in our herb patch—the sage. My husband hates it—unless it’s a hint on a finely-roasted turkey. My big successes this season are chives and mustard greens. I bought a chive plant from Regina at the Fair Foods Market at Bay Burger and—thanks to the rain we’ve had—it’s still with us three weeks on. The shocker is our homegrown mustard greens. They came up! To round out my seasonal tossed salad I relied on the pros and threw in half a bag of organic Spring Radish Mesclun Mix from Bette & Dale’s Farm on the Bridgehampton Turnpike. Then I drained a can of black olives and threw them on. Long Island—meet California! I mixed up an Italian dressing with Wolffer’s rosé vinegar and olive oil and it was a party in my mouth. Husband liked it too—I just had to assure him that I’d rinsed everything twice. Would that life could be gathered up and mixed around in a bowl, dressed up and chowed down… See Dan’s Calendar on page 62 for a complete list of local farmers markets.

Cover Artist Joe Chierchio By Marion W. Weiss

This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cover artist, Joe Chierchio, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play it safe. No sooner had he finished his last cover that appeared in February, than he started work on a piece that celebrated Memorial Day, hoping that Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Papers would find it an appropriate image in May 2012. The father and son looking at Bridgehamptonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Founders Monument proved that it was indeed not only an appropriate cover, but a moving one as well. Q: You have quite a history with creating covers for Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Papers over the years. This is your 12th

one, right? A: Yes, but do you want to hear a funny story about the last one, showing Dan moving from his old building? A friend asked me if I would do a commission for a well-known person who saw that cover and really liked it. Finally, he told me who the client wasâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Clive Davis, the music producer who has been responsible for many famous singers. After meeting with him, I did a drawing, a montage, of his face in the center, surrounded by small drawings of important events in his life.

Q: That commission is another example of how your art tells stories. How is this current cover about storytelling, too? A: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about a father and son or even a grandfather and grandson at the Founders Monument. The older man is explaining about World War II and about people who gave their lives for this country. Q: What is your connection to World War II? A: I had five uncles who fought in the War. They were real heroes. Veterans from the war in Iraq and Afghanistan are not treated as well now. We have no heroes like we used to. Q: Would your uncles tell you stories of the war? A: My Uncle Genie would tell me lots of stories when he came back; he was at Anzio Beach in Italy. He would work long winter nights at home when we were all asleep. I remember my mother made a planter out of the helmet he brought back. I did a painting with a man sitting at a diner based on my uncle. The same image is on the cover of my book,


New York, Drawing on the Past. Q: You are obviously attracted to the past. Do you visit your old Brooklyn neighborhood much? A: Yes. I like to go to a restaurant and talk about the past, to relive memories. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the subjects in my paintings are nostalgic. Q: Getting back to the idea of both heroes and the past, who were some of your heroes? A: I played sports when I was growing up, so I liked sports figures. Michael Jordon was a hero. He always gave you 100%. He played when he was sick, hurt. My art heroes were Norman Rockwell, Edward Hopper, Andy Warhol, Picasso. Pound for pound, Picasso is the greatest artist of all time. He did so many things; he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop at one thing. Picasso never played it safe.   See work by Joe Chierchio on his website: View some of Chierchioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Papers covers at

Greenport Tall Ships Challenge 2012

Tall Ships Docking in Greenport Next Weekend By robert sforza


n light of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, also known as Mr. Madison’s War, tall ships will be sailing up the eastern coastline to Greenport, competing in the Tall Ships Challenge Atlantic Coast 2012. These majestic tall ships will be sailing into port this Memorial Day weekend. A tall ship—a large, traditionallyrigged sailing vessel characterized by its towering masts— was the type of ship that dominated the seas 200 years ago. The festival in the small North Fork village is part of a yearlong celebration of the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. Besides docking at Greenport, the challenge is also making appearances in Savannah, Georgia; Charlestown, South Carolina and Halifax, Nova Scotia. Greenport Mayor David Nyce is proud that his village is part of this challenge alongside major American cities. “To have a really cool event in a village of this size­ —like Greenport—is astounding,” Nyce commented in an interview. Seven royal ships will be making their way into Greenport on Friday evening (May 25). The small North Fork town is the second port to host the Tall Ships fleet on the holiday weekend. Nyce is hoping for 75,000 people to come into town over the weekend to walk the shoplined streets, to explore the spectacular towering ships, and to enjoy the village’s annual carnival, which has been put on by the local fire department for the last 30 years. The ships set sail out of Savannah, Georgia on May 7, where the fleet started on its odyssey up the East Coast towards Greenport, Long Island. The ships will continue north to Newport, Rhode Island (July 6-9), before finally anchoring in Halifax, Nova Scotia (July 19-23).  The Bounty, Lynx, Picton Castle, Pride of Baltimore II, Unicorn, Summerwind, and the Roseway are the seven confirmed ships that will be in port for the weekend. Mayor Nyce informs that his office has been working since last July to make this event happen. Tall Ships America, the organization arranging the racing challenge, contacted the village knowing that it has held smaller, but similar events. “We’ve never done something quite like this,” says Nyce. “We’ve hosted ships and musical festivals annually, but never of this size.” Though the marvel attraction is the magnificent ships towering over the small town,

Mitchell Park will host a fête. The waterfront will have activities that will keep kids and adults entertained, a carnival in the evening, and of course the classical carousel will be perpetually spinning. Musical concerts will only add to the delightful ambience, as merchants and streetside vendors will be creating their own festival atmosphere offering a smorgasbord of food; fine dining at local restaurants like Claudio’s, Noah’s and the Frisky Oyster will also add to the festivities. Though the tall ships are the main attraction, the festival is also about promoting maritime history. Tall Ships America’s mission is to provide a unique educational experience for young children and nautical enthusiasts

interested in sailing. In addition, the East End Seaport Museum is presenting a nautical exhibit called “Art of the Sailor.” The village held a Tall Ship event eight years ago in 2004. However, for that festival the town received financial aid from a grant that covered the touring fees of the boats, which can range from $20,000 to $40,000. Though the village does not have that grant this year, visitors will still be allowed to see the magnificent ships for a small fee $8 ($7 if bought previously online), and children under 12 are free. “We’ll try and put on the event of the year,” says an enthusiastic Nyce. Ships ahoy!

The Truth You Did Not Want To Know To my mother Sally Flynn, and all mothers, I wish a restful and relaxing post-Mother’s Day season full of pampering and peace. Good luck getting it. As a mother myself of a beautiful, intelligent little three-year-old, I’ve learned a lot (and I’m not talking about my becoming bilingual from hours and hours of Dora brainwashing). There are a few things you’re not told before becoming a mother: I’m not sure whether it’s because they’re too embarrassing to admit to or because the fate of the human population depends on maintaining some level of reproduction. Myth No. 1: Movie Labor All those movies where they show five minutes of labor and then they place a sleeping baby into the arms of a mother with perfect hair and makeup, that’s a crock. As I recall, it was several hours of screaming and writhing while people are snapping pictures of you looking like you just survived a natural disaster. Just when you think all the horror is over, they hand you an adult diaper to wear home and you still look pregnant. Myth No. 2: Maternal Instinct Maternal instinct is made out to be an instantaneous turn around from the wild and free-spirited young woman to the mature, demure super-mother. Wrong again: it’s merely the transition from carefree to paranoid. Maternal instinct is decidedly animalistic, meaning your good-hearted nature is now only as good as what the person talking to you is saying about your child. Criticism of your child forces you

crayon or waking my daughter from her nap. Myth No. 4: Motherhood is Beautiful While the emotions of motherhood are beautiful, it is hard to feel so yourself sometimes. Most days my three-year-old outshines me. Her wardrobe is larger and newer than mine, if I’m in a hurry I brush her hair and not mine, her shoes always match her outfit and she won’t put on a pair of socks that don’t match. When we show up to preschool, I know I don’t look like her mother, so much as her handmaiden. I don’t remember the last time I took a bath alone, sometimes I have to change what I planned to wear despite the weather because I haven’t had the opportunity to shave my legs in a week...okay, two weeks. I admit I’ve surrendered my expensive perfumed shave gel for use as a bath toy for drawing pictures on the shower wall. Myth No. 5: Your Teenager Thinks You’re Dumb. I haven’t experienced this wonderful passage of motherhood yet, but I’ve been told the war stories. Being young enough to still remember it from the flip side, though, I’ll let you in on something...your teenager doesn’t actually think you’re stupid, they’re just sick of you always being right! Let them make some mistakes, they’re going to anyway. Be easy on yourself, you did a good job; besides, eventually your children will have children. That’ll show them. Elizabeth/Table4FiveFlickr

to choke down your inner lioness, ready to pounce on and eviscerate the offender. Myth No. 3: Motherhood is Pristine You know those TV commercials with the clean living rooms, full of stylish decor? Not real. In the world of motherhood, throw pillows are actually thrown. Recliners become diving boards. Your LCD screen is covered in crayon. Unless you provide your child with an entirely separate playroom, surrounded by tall gates, door and window locks and padded walls, your entire house is a minefield. I have become something of a ninja—I can trip over a toy, jump in mid air and land on point without snapping a single

bold copy under the picture read, “YOUR MOTHER WOULDN’T LIKE IT.” However, over the next few decades thousands of car enthusiasts did. The following are some other cars that I feel your mother also wouldn’t like, starting with the 1961 Jaguar XK-E. When you factor in that this beauty was introduced a year ahead of the MGB, and its aesthetic beauty, it made the new MGB look frumpy. Your mother would have probably flipped out if you had bought it. For the record, the Jaguar XK-E has been called the sexiest car ever designed by man. The XK-E, along with “birds” in mini skirts, defined the swinging sixties. Sorry, Mom.  Another car Mom would hate would be an entirely different British sports car, the Lotus Super Seven.


A happy belated Mother’s Day to all the devoted mothers and grandmothers out there. Mrs. Obama, Mrs. Romney, Mrs. Clinton, and Mrs. Gelber all know how hard you have all worked to keep your little critters on the straight and narrow. In 1962 when the British Motor Corporation (BMC) introduced the MGB, the second best-selling sports car (the Mazda Miata was number one) ever made, BMC ran a clever full-page print ad in every major magazine. It pictured a pretty girl in a mini skirt standing next to a spanking new MGB. The

You see, a Super Seven is not really a car, but a device one wears to legally drive on the road and pretend it’s an extension of your body. It allows one to slip by other cars and drive ghostlike around impossibly fast curves. I know mothers hate the car because my wife, who is probably the best mother on earth and a great driver, hated my Lotus Super Seven. She called it “the coffin car.” It sorta looked like a coffin and every time we used it she was sure we would die. I loved the little plastic hot rod. Sorry, Mom. High horsepower cars freak moms out. Ever try peeling out with your mother in the car? My best advice to all the teenagers in the world, don’t show off. If your rich dad was stupid enough to get you a Corvette for your high school graduation, keep the horsepower to yourself. Another big secret is that most moms really don’t like riding in convertibles, especially in the back seat. Truth be told, nobody really likes riding in the back seat. You may look cool, but it’s pure torture, especially when driving over sixty. So keep the top up if mom is in the car, and give her some respect. At least, let her sit up front. In all due respect to moms and women of the world, not all of them hate fast or sporty cars. Automotive racing legend Janet Guthrie was the first woman to race in both the Daytona 500 and the Indy 500. Just yesterday, I watched a current race driver, Danica Patrick, force another racer into the wall at a race, in reprisal for his jamming her car into the same wall a lap earlier. (No one was injured.) She’s a hot shoe race winner and placed higher than any female ever in the Indy 500 in 2009. Both women are automotive legends. Several years ago I wrote and co-hosted a TV show called “The Car Critics” where I road tested new cars. The high-speed work was done at the Bridgehampton race track. For my co-host I had a female racing driver named Leanne Lombardi. She was a fine co-host, but I was most impressed with her driving skills and dedication to racing. And yes, she was faster than me on the track. Go moms, go.

Taking the “Stinging” Out of Your Swinging

DEET DEET is the active ingredient in many insect repellent products and is used to repel biting pests that may carry disease. Products range in concentration from 4% to 100% DEET and are available in many forms such as an aerosol, lotion, or cream for application to skin or clothing. DEET is effective for one or more hours and must be reapplied periodically. The effectiveness of DEET is influenced by the concentration and for most golfers a concentration around 30% to 40% should be used. Anything higher can be harmful to the skin and should be used carefully on clothing only. When applying DEET to protect against ticks, particular attention should be given to the shoes, socks, and lower portion of pants. In addition to using DEET, one should regularly check shoes and pants when walking in the woods or high grass. Wearing light colored pants and socks are also a good idea so that it is easier to spot these pests. Shower quickly after


This year’s unseasonably mild winter has been wreaking havoc across the East End. Golfers everywhere are finding an abnormally high number of ticks when searching for errant shots. Warm winter temperatures, decreased field mice population and straying from the middle of the fairway are the primary causes of the increased potential for finding a tick. Here are a few tips to help you keep the ball in the fairway and repel those pesky ticks and the diseases they carry.

In addition, try implementing some course management strategies. Keep the driver in the bag and start playing smart. Use a hybrid or 3 wood off the tee and play to the largest part of the fairway. Tee the ball low and trap the ball off the turf. This will allow you to use the ground to keep the clubface square, ensuring a controlled clubface. Stay healthy on the course this summer. Use these techniques to try Annika Sorenstam takes a steadied swing. and keep your ball out of the rough or woods and stay a round of golf to wash off any DEET that might be protected in case your ball travels astray.

NEWS BRIEFS Which Witch?

The Tate-Witch, a tasty cookie and ice cream treat, is about to make some serious waves in the Hamptons. Dan’s Papers has “the scoop.” Joe and Liza Tremblay, the owners of Bay Burger, have expanded their ice cream production, and they have partnered with Kathleen King of the nationally renowned Tate’s Bake Shop. Joe revealed to Dan’s that the first Tate-Witches will contain two chocolate chip cookies and vanilla ice cream. No whacky flavors yet. The “secret” to this winning combo of ice cream and cookie? They rest in the freezer for a couple of weeks to achieve ice cream cookie sandwich texture perfection. Joe promised to bring a case to the Dan’s Papers offices in Southampton for taste testing…

Reverend Stanley Kondeja, 78 Rev. Father Stanley Kondeja of Our Lady of Poland Roman Catholic Church in Southampton passed away in his home on Maple Street on May 12. The beloved pastor served mass in both English and Polish. He died of natural causes. Father Stanley was instrumental in the church’s renovation project in 2009. The church opened on Christmas Day in 1918, and the current building reflects the charm of the original structure. He was also very involved in Our Lady of the Hamptons Regional Catholic School (OLH), serving as the sponsoring pastor for almost 20 years. The church and the school share a parking lot, and Father Stanley was a constant presence at OLH. Kids looked forward to his annual Blessing of the Animals each October for the Feast of St. Francis, where all were invited to bring their pets.

Surf Lodge Reaches Settlement

It seems like the Surf Lodge saga has finally come to an end. On Monday, East Hampton Town and the famed Montauk nightclub reached a $100,000 settlement for the roughly 700 Town Code violations the polarizing hotspot accrued last season. Attorneys Thomas Horn and Andy Hammer represented the Surf Lodge, which agreed to plead guilty to 100 of the charges to a fine of $1,000 apiece. The types of charges leveled against the Surf Lodge last summer ran the gamut of town code violations and included no certificate of occupancy, no building permit, illegal clearing of wetlands and overcrowding. This marks another major development in the Surf Lodge’s contentious history in the past month—Montauk Properties LLC purchased the Surf Lodge on April 30. The press release indicated that it may become a more mellow, family-friendly environment. Earlier that week, Chef Sam Talbot announced that he was leaving Montauk and the Surf Lodge to pursue different projects.

Fire at the Dock On May 11, a fire destroyed the Fish Dock, one of two commercial fishing docks in Montauk. The cause of the fire is still unknown, but the diesel fuel pump at the dock and wax and cardboard fishing cartons likely helped to feed the flames. The Montauk Fire Department arrived at the scene at about 3 a.m. Their quick response allowed them to prevent the fire from spreading, as it could have threatened nearby Gosman’s Dock. The business is owned by Paul Farmham, who sources say is committed to rebuilding the business. However, locals worry about the impact that the loss of the Fish Dock could have on the local commercial fishing economy. No one was hurt in the incident.

Seinfeld’s New Show

Play for a Porsche

At the Maidstone Golf Club, 29 Maidstone Lane, East Hampton, there will be more on the line to make a hole in one on Monday, June 4. The event, “Play the Links at the Maidstone Golf Club,” will give out awards and a “little” something extra. After a lunch, followed by the tournament, dinner and award ceremony, anyone will be able to win a new Porsche Panamera from Porsche Southampton—if you make a hole in one. The rules are simple. Make a hole in one at the Maidstone Club and drive home in a new Porsche Pasnamera. This car makes a great fit for the contestants, those who want to be seen driving around in a state-of-the-art sports car.

On March 9, East Hampton resident Jerry Seinfeld tweeted “Working on my New Thing. Shooting in Manhattan with the Great @alecbaldwin.” What could these two comic geniuses possibly be doing? Hamptonites, we have our answer. It was revealed this week that Seinfeld, a known car enthusiast, is working on a new show called “Comics and Cars” with Baldwin, Ricky Gervais and Larry David. The friends will test drive classic cars while cracking jokes and taking trips down memory lane. Check out www. for additional updates on the show, as we hear them!

Old World Charm â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sherwood House Vineyards BY LENN THOMPSON

Owned and operated by Charles and Barbara Smithen, Sherwood House Vineyards (www. sherwoodhousevineyards. com) is the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ultimate expression of an intense passion for both wine and the East End. A cardiologist and vintage jewelry dealer, respectively, they purchased their 1860 farmhouse in 1996 and planted their vines soon after on land that once grew corn and potatoes. In 1999, after selling off their grapes to local wineries for a few years, the Smithens decided to make their own wine and enlisted the help of French-born, local veteran winemaker Gilles Martin. Martin also makes wines for Bouke and Sparkling Pointe locally. The portfolio leans heavily on chardonnay and merlot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sherwood House was a founding member of Merliance ( and remains a member â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but they also produce cabernet franc and a Bordeaux-style blend. Some of the chardonnay is used in sparkling wine production, a real specialty of Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. There are two primary places you can taste the portfolio â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at the more traditional tasting room in Jamesport and right amongst their vines on Oregon Road, where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve dropped a tasting shed in and offer several tables for casual, vineyard-side enjoyment. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out tasting at several places throughout the day, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d recommend the Jamesport location, but if a lazy afternoon is your goal, get over to the vineyard in Mattituck. Start with Sherwood House Vineyards 2011 Oregon Road Chardonnay ($18), an un-oaked expression of their chardonnay vineyard. With aromas of lemon and orange zest, yellow apples and a subtle nutty

Sherwood House Vineyards, Mattituck

leesy note, this is anything but a flabby West Coast chardonnay. Bright and straightforward, the palate shows good acidity that brings verve to apple-lemon flavors with a bit of saline minerality on the finish. Seafood or simply prepared white meats seem a good foil. RosĂŠs made from merlot can be a bit onedimensional and uninteresting, but Sherwood House Vineyards 2011 White Merlot ($18) is quite refreshing and delicious. Pears, apples, strawberries and hints of peach greet the nose while the palate focuses more on peaches and wild strawberries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with a light sweet herb quality â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and plenty of acidity to go around. Summer wine? Absolutely. Think beach, pool or boat. Sherwood House has built its reputation largely on the back of its Old World-styled barrel fermented chardonnay. Personally, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to compare any local wines to those from any other individual region, but many mention Burgundy when it comes to Sherwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chardonnay. The Sherwood House Vineyards 2009 Chardonnay ($30) isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite as delicious as the stellar 2008, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a fine

example. The nose shows scents of vanilla-roasted pears, buttery pastry crust and just a bit of raw oak. Medium bodied with balanced acidity, the palate tastes of caramelized pears and butterscotch with notes of fresh-cut pear and flowers on the finish. Though not a new release like the above wines, Sherwood House Vineyards 2005 Merlot ($30) is still available and a must-taste wine. It shows classic Long Island merlot aromas of black raspberry and black cherry, hints of tobacco leaf and dried thyme, toasty oak and earthy undercurrent. Medium- to full-bodied, it offers both fresh and dried cherry flavors with underlying tobacco and dried herb character. There is a dose of toasty oak here too. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost too much, but ultimately doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cross the line, spicing the wine rather than overwhelming it. The tannins are of medium intensity and are well integrated. Acidity brings a certain freshness and earthy and dried cherry notes re-emerge on the medium-long finish.

John Drew, a celebrated thespian and reigning lion of the Barrymore clan, chose East Hampton as his summer home. He so charmed the citizens of the town that they dedicated the theater posthumously in his honor. The Theater enchants audiences with its octagonal shape and blue and white striped tent-like ceiling that sweeps up to a chandelier of glass balloons. But, it is not just the interior that captivates audiences; it is the magic of what happens on stage.

The Concept of Narrative Examined Through Art

Photo by Ann Chwatsky

Ever since Aristotle identified “Mythos” or “plot” as a core dramatic principle, the concept of storytelling has remained crucial in the arts. The current show at Southampton’s Cultural Center, “Contemporary Narrative,” allows us to examine the nature of such an idea, with variations and interpretations. We’re not quite sure if all the examples in the exhibit curated by Arlene Bujese are truly narrative, but they are certainly intriguing. Some works are literally about storytelling: Kevin Teare’s “I Wanna Be Your Man” is taken from a song by John Lennon and Paul McCartney where words and musical notes are reproduced on the canvas. Paint dollops are intermingled with the visuals, a particular signature of Teare’s. Another type of narrative (based on history) is represented in pieces by Adler Beegan. One special image of a wildebeest proves the point. Similar to the Lascaux Cave paintings, the wildebeest documents a creature that once played a significant part in the existence of ancient inhabitants, living a million years ago. Photographs by Marcel Bally suggest an historical narrative as well, reproducing present life, rather than the past, in various societies around the world. Often, sociologists use similar images as a tool to determine and define diverse cultural elements. Of course, Bally’s photographs are fine art and not scientific observation, where light, shadows, composition and points of view convey his own subjective perspective. However, a narrative is still

present, motivating the viewer’s imagination. For example, we want to know more about the woman in Iran walking down an alley, away from the camera. Or about the close-up of three boys squinting in the sun. Or about the priest in a long shot, walking through a plaza. With these images, Bally has created both stories and characters. (By the way, Aristotle did affirm that “characters” were the most important aspect of drama, even more so than plot.) Talk about characters, William King’s figurative sculptures are always extraordinary. But the spectator may ask what they have to do with a narrative? Plenty, if we consider that King’s figures are so idiosyncratic that we question the nature of their behavior and what will happen after they break away from their “pose.” It’s as if his individuals and couples are caught between the past and the

future in a present moment that freezes time. Finally, there’s storytelling as metaphor, featuring photographs by Ann Chwatsky. While we might describe these images as psychological in nature, this “Curtain Series” shows various windows masking the outside with layers of curtains. Thus, we conclude that the curtains are barriers we establish which hide our “ interior” psyche or perhaps our id. Such barriers come in all shapes and settings, from an eloquent velvet curtain with the word “masquerade” on its ballast to a simple blind and cord concealing a blurred image of a tree outside.   “Contemporary Narrative” will be on view through May 22 at The Southampton Cultural Center, 25 Pond Lane, Southampton. 631-287-4377.

Thomas Jefferson, Rachel and Me By JOAN BAUM

Every now and then a work of fiction comes along that may seem destined for a young adult market as well as for an older readership, which doesn’t mean that such a book cannot be enjoyed by both groups. With Thomas Jefferson, Rachel and Me by Peter Boody, one can only hope that history and social studies teachers in high schools become aware of this clever, consistently interesting debut novel that features the country’s third president who mysteriously shows up one day in the 21st century wandering around Monticello. Boody, former editor of The Southampton Press and current editor of The Shelter Island Reporter, notes that he was inspired to write the tale because of his love of Jefferson, especially the “enchanting homes near Charlottesville and Lynchburg,” but also because of Annette Gordon-Reed’s “landmark history,” The Hemingses of Monticello which, he slyly says, brought Jefferson to life “more vividly than any book I’d ever read – until this one.” After a brief adjustment to TJ’s ghost mysteriously coming to life on the Monticello lawn, the reader accepts narrator Jack Arrowsmith’s account of events, a story that surprises with deepening thematic complexities. Such is Boody’s skill that what in other hands might be a gimmick, a kind of you-are-there teaching ploy, becomes an impressive exploration of Jefferson’s legacy. The novel also artfully integrates that exploration into Jack’s personal story – an unresolved depression over the

recent loss of his beloved wife to cancer and of his estranged son in a car accident. He seeks out Rachel (a light-skinned black woman), who was engaged to his son, and she soon becomes a confidant, letting him in on the reason his son broke away from him. She, too, will be haunted by the apparition of Jefferson, and bear his child. For sure, Boody has mastered all things Jefferson, but his eye is on the president’s heritage, which has been undergoing revision, as contemporary values are applied to critiques of antebellum America. The various characters in Boody’s fictionalized revisiting discuss and argue over the “big, fat flaws in a life of grace, charm, and beauty,” with particular regard to Jefferson’s having been a slave-holding planter who fathered black children, and his advocacy of states’ rights over federalism, a consequence of which, for Boody, has been a misunderstanding of TJ’s take on Union and a distortion of Jeffersonian Democracy by the far right. The literary stratagem works and also allows for layered irony. TJ is taken to be a delightful but loony Jefferson look-alike by almost everyone. Fortunately, he agrees to become a “period-clad” re-enactordocent at Williamsburg, a position that allows him freedom to be himself while also attempting to do right -- by Sally, by his black servant Jamie, reincarnated here as Rachel’s black father, and by the words of The Declaration of Independence.

In a black section of Washington, D.C. he gets mugged. In New York, living in an apartment near Columbia, he makes friends with a black youngster and with his neighbors, who intuitively like him though they don’t understand his eccentricities. The device of a haunted and haunting TJ confronting regret and seeking redemption also gives Boody a chance to explore how 21st century technology and the economy affect present-day personal and political attitudes. TJ shows himself to be a flawed but admirable natural leader, without the deep cynicism that can destroy many an idealist, but with enough sang froid to try the patience and loyalty of old friends such as Washington and Adams. He even gets to meet Obama and hear him give a speech praising the promise of “The Declaration” and noting that 2013 will be the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, a time to have a “real conversation about slavery.” Thomas Jefferson, Rachel and Me not only prompts a reader to appreciate anew a brilliant and humane leader of our country, but also to consider the way a historical record may reflect facts, but leave out deep truths. Thomas Jefferson, Rachel and Me by Peter Boody is available online. Boody will give a reading of this book at the Shelter Island Public Library on July 13. Visit for all the details.

By tamara matthews-stephenson

With summer just a few short weeks away, I look at my tired outdoor furniture, urns and garden items in the hopes of freshening up my outdoor spaces. Having just returned from the Brimfield Antique show in western Massachusetts, I happily lugged home a few antique urns and unique garden ornaments. It was worth the tremendous effort because the large cement antique gargoyle now holds court in my small flower garden, offering up something solid within the twisting vines and blooms. It will add character to my perennial garden and keep it looking fresh during the days or weeks the flowers are in between bloom. As I assess the options for lounging under the pergola and next to the pool, I am happy that my reliable teak furniture has withstood the test of time, and it is impressive how well it has fared after many dull winters. However, some of the wicker side tables and other pieces have begun to look a bit frayed over the years, and I quickly assess it is time to add a little something special to highlight the green grass. After recently attending a variety of home shows, I feel inspired to add something special to my outdoor spaces and under my pergola. This weekend’s

International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) at New York’s Jacob Javits Center promises to offer up a plethora of new designs. While looking over the host of many exhibitors, it is impressive to note there are several Long Island craftsman and furniture makers exhibiting, including local furniture designer Nico Yektai from Sag Harbor. Yektai offers up contemporary furniture with clean lines, and his pieces have sculptural appeal. He has exhibited his furniture in a variety of local showrooms, but of course it will be exciting to see what he will launch at this year’s ICFF. The ICFF runs four days beginning this Friday, May 19 through Tuesday May 22. Tuesday may be a good day to pop into the city and head over to the Javits Center at 11th Avenue and 34th Street because the show is open to the general public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Each year the ICFF draws over 500 exhibitors from all over the globe. It’s one of the country’s premier showcases for contemporary design with up-to-the-minute offerings as well as a packed schedule of events. In addition to outdoor furniture there are furniture, seating, carpet and flooring, lighting, materials, wall coverings, accessories, textiles, and kitchen and bath wares all exhibited. One outdoor company I have been keeping an eye on recently is Belgian company Royal Botania. They produce state-of-the-art furniture made with a combination of teak, wood, glass and fabric. Many of their styles work well with both traditional and

contemporary spaces. They offer myriad of options for outdoor lighting as well, including a variety of standing lamps resembling indoor styles, which allows you to extend your interior design aesthetic outside like never before. Many of the new outdoor collections from Royal Botania look like indoor furniture. Whether you hit local antique shows for a oneof-a-kind piece or shop the variety of home shows around the area, or even a combination of the two, it may be time to start looking at your outdoor space with a fresh perspective. Making a few small changes may have you visualizing balmy summer nights while entertaining guests under the pergola in style.

Naturally Organic Lawns are Healthy Lawns usually compose a large portion of a property. It, therefore, serves us and nature to care for them wisely. If you care for your own lawn, you can implement some of these things as needed. If you have a lawn care company taking care of your lawn for you, a discussion of their practices might be in order. Grass, like all plants, is fed by the soil so it is the soil you must feed. The parts of the soil that feed the plants are the micro-organisms and the critters that live therein. They do not eat chemicals but are instead killed by chemicals. These things eat organic material. When they are healthy, the grass is healthy. If you fertilize, use an organic fertilizer about half strength in the spring and fall. You might not need fertilizer at all after using some organic techniques to build the soil.


By jeanelle myers

an application of a good compost (perhaps Dr. Earth), or even (I have read and it makes sense to me) chopping up moldy hay into the lawn with your mulching bladed mower, mowing tall in the summer and then, in the fall, mowing the leaves and grass into the grass for even more food. Watering deeply but infrequently is also important.

Automatic sprinkler systems might need to be changed according to the weather but a deep root zone will be more tolerant of weather extremes. With a good layer of organic soil, tall grass and appropriate watering you should have a healthy lawn that is cheaper to maintain. (Less or no fertilizer and pesticides, no hauling away of grass debris or leaves and less water.) All of this being said, it is recommended by the folks that spray for ticks (yes, there are non-chemical products) that lawns be kept short to help keep the lawn unattractive to ticks. They also recommend doing other things that I don’t like to do like picking up all of the leaves on one’s property. Whew! What to do? To me, it is more important to keep my plants healthy. I have no children and my pets stay in the house. I must spray myself every day for ticks as I visit other properties. So I do that on my own property. You might call Brian at East End Tick and Mosquito Control for advice at 631-324-9700. For gardening discussion call Jeanelle Myers at 631434-5067.




It is best for the grass and for weed suppression to mow tall (3”). It is also best to mow more frequently and remove less at a time. The small pieces of grass that fall back onto the lawn will become food. Mulching blades on your mower will chop the grass into very small pieces. Mowing short actually stresses grass, causing it to grow more quickly. Mowing tall and removing less stresses it less and lets it use its energy to grow more roots. The height and denser cover shades weed seeds from the sun so they don’t grow. There are several situations when the soil is not very good for grass: new construction where the top layers of soil have been removed and “top soil” added soil in the woods which is not usually very nutritious, soil that is very sandy or soil that was farm land and might be full of chemicals. In all of these situations, the soil will benefit from organic practices: light applications of an organic fertilizer,

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR AN OFFER YOU CANNOT REFUSE! Dear Dan, Senator Schumer lobbying the General Services Administration (GSA) to sign a lease for space at 1 World Trade Center makes no sense for taxpayers. First, we have provided several billion dollars subsidizing reconstruction of 1 WTC. Current cost is now $3.9 billion including a $1 billion cost overrun. Overall costs of rebuilding the 16-acre site including the 9/11 memorial and other projects has increased from $11 billion in 2008 to $15 billion today. Many components are several years behind schedule. Now taxpayers are being asked to pay twice by providing funding for GSA to rent space at the same facility from the Port Authority and the Durst Organization. (Does Schumer have any conflicts of interest in soliciting campaign contributions from members of the Durst Organization as a political quid pro quo for “assisting” and “steering” them tenants?) Why

114 Old Riverhead Road | Westhampton Beach 631.998.4004



Not to be combined


shouldn’t 100% of 1 WTC space be rented out to private sector tenants thus saving taxpayers funds? Many other owners of facilities can offer leasing at a far lower price per square foot. They could easily beat the so-called bargain of $40 a square foot at 1 WTC. With a $16 trillion dollar plus deficit, shouldn’t the GSA along with other federal agencies be consolidating? Schumer’s actions are just padding the amount of leased space at 1 WTC with taxpayers picking up the tab. Schumer reminds me of Don Corleone, the “Godfather.” He is making them “an offer they can’t refuse!” Sincerely, Larry Penner Great Neck NOT HOSPICE Dear Dan, Recently it was brought to my attention that some area residents are being solicited by phone to give donations to “hospice” and in at least one incidence when asked, the caller was reluctant to reveal the name of the organization to receive the donation. Please be aware, East End Hospice has never, is not now nor has any plan to engage in soliciting donations via the telephone. Granted, donations to East End Hospice are welcome and necessary to support activities such as our highly acclaimed children’s bereavement programs, providing groups and individual therapy sessions to children and parents all across the East End; Camp Good Grief which in this the 15th year is expected to be attended by over 100 children; and the very exciting new project to build an 8 bed free standing hospice inpatient residence. Looking back over the past 21 years of serving the people of the East End, the community has steadfastly supported and encouraged us in our work. We look forward to providing care and comfort to those in need in the years ahead as East End

Hospice continues to bring the extraordinary level of support families have become accustomed to and rightly deserve. With gratitude, Priscilla Ruffin, President & CEO East End Hospice, Inc. This is good to know. –DR ARRESTING THE OBESITY EPIDEMIC Dear Editor, The number of Americans considered obese is expected to rise from the current 34% to 42% by the year 2030, according to a study published in The American Journal of Preventive Medicine and discussed at Monday’s “Weight of the Nation” conference. Obesity-related ailments account for countless premature deaths and as much as 18% of the $2.6 trillion national cost of medical care. The leading causes of obesity are consumption of fat-laden meat and dairy products and lack of exercise. This is particularly critical during childhood years, when lifestyle habits become lifelong addictions. A five-year Oxford University study of 22,000 people, published in The International Journal of Obesity in 2006, found that those on a vegetarian or vegan diet gained the least weight. A review of 87 studies in Nutrition Reviews concluded that a vegetarian diet is highly effective for weight loss. The time has come to replace meat and dairy products in our diet with wholesome grains, vegetables, and fruits and to undertake a regular exercise program. Parents should insist on healthy school lunch choices and set a good example at their own dinner table. Sincerely, Brian Williams Stonington, CT Also carrots can help you see better at night. –DR

A guide to local favorites

Restaurant Review: Stonewalls at the Woods By kelly laffey

The extensive wine list includes a selection of bottles from around the word as well as local favorites such as Paumanok, Sparkling Pointe, Jamesport Vineyards and Wolffer Estate Vineyards. In the summer, Stonewalls’ menu expands, but a prix fixe will be offered every night. A new addition to the selections will be a burger bar, which includes a Wagyu beef burger, lamb burger, buffalo burger, turkey burger and the Stonewalls Burger – a 10-ounce creation that is not for the faint of heart. All the burgers come with assorted side items, specialty buns and lots of fixings! Currently, there is a Happy Hour from 5-7 p.m. in

ituated on two public 18-hole golf courses, Stonewalls at the Woods at Cherry Creek Golf Club in Riverhead serves classic French and American fare. It’s the kind of food that has come to be expected at prestigious country clubs, but the ambience is anything but stuffy. “The best part about owning a restaurant out here is the people,” says manager Jeff Abinette. Stonewalls is both inviting and elegant, with an emphasis on attentive customer service. Open for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch, Stonewalls has a multitude of options that are sure to tantalize the taste buds. The restaurant has received numerous awards, including several Dan’s Papers Best of the Best nods. “All the vegetables and produce are local,” says Abinette. “We also have our own garden where we grow our own tomatoes, garlic and herbs.” Traditional French plates call for cream and butter, but Stonewalls’ menu includes lighter dishes that still remain true to the French style. The mussels seem to be a crowd favorite. For an appetizer, I tried the tuna tartare – it’s impossible for me to turn down anything that has avocadoes in it. This dish is served on a plate of salad with fresh cucumbers and a smattering of crispy chips. This is much more than your typical small plate to begin a meal! The fish dishes are also popular, and I quite enjoyed my halibut, which was a special that night.

K. Laffey


the Grill Room Tuesday through Friday with half price drinks, beer and wine. Stonewalls’ award-winning brunch is served every Sunday and includes a complimentary basket of freshly baked breads and a choice of a mimosa, bloody Mary or a glass of house wine. Brunch appetizers include Long Island Baked Clams Provencale and Homemade Gravlax Salmon with cucumber salad and ginger soy vinaigrette. The entrees are a combination of traditional brunch fare and elegant culinary twists. Omlettes can come with a choice of combinations of vegetables and cheeses. Or, try the Baked Scottish Salmon with a light lobster and tarragon sauce. Stonewalls also has Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes with red pepper coulis, and Grilled Sirloin Steak and scrambled eggs. In addition, assorted desserts are offered. Summer specials include a frequent use of Stonewalls outdoor space for dancing, barbecues and drinking wine around the fire pit. Golfers should inquire about Stonewalls’ partnership with the courses, as package deals for a round of golf and post-game meal are available. Stonewalls also offers on-premises catering for private parties. The restaurant can accommodate groups of various sizes indoors or outdoors.

Simple Art of Cooking On a warm and sunny Monday evening, the bright and airy courtyard of Fresno Restaurant in East Hampton looked every bit an early summer Hampton party, bustling with folks. Only this time the folks were there to swirl, gurgle and sip (and spit), and to take notes on a tasting from a selection of wines assembled by Michael Carr-Smith and Mei Fongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s South Pacific Wines LLC. Several of the wines were later paired with a mouthwatering dinner created by Gretchen Menser, executive chef of Fresno. Menser was a key player in pairing the food and wine, along with Michael and Mei. Translucent slices of local fluke crudo (raw) served with a colorfully creamy jalapeno mango vinaigrette and micro cilantro green garnish married beautifully with the fruity aromas and sparkle of Crossroads Sauvignon Blanc Pink, Marlborough, to balance the bit of spice in the dressing. Tuscan olive oil and a fresh garlic rub deliciously saturated the crusty grilled bread (crostini) to anchor the rosemary and crushed red pepper-spiced grilled prawns. Here Crossroads Chardonnay, Hawkes Bay, rounded the tang of the well-seasoned prawns. We may be in springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prime with summer approaching, but our main course, slow braised boneless short ribs with warm and creamy polenta and local apple gremolata infused with fresh grated horseradish and lemon zest, a sweet counter part to the fantastic short ribs, is just too good to give up. Even in the warmer months to come Gretchen promises to keep it on

the menu. Two Pinot Noirs, Mana and Crown Range, were poured for this course. Although stylistically different, the versatile Pinots offered a choice from lighter to a richer, more full-bodied wine. Surprises are always fun especially when a Merlot, namely Crossroads, Merlot Hawkes Bay, containing 90% Merlot grape with chocolaty nuances, paired well with the meltingly delicious warm flourless chocolate soufflÊ cake infused with Nutella and marshmallow fluff and served with hazelnut gelato. Gretchen was more than generous in sharing the recipes below.   Jalapeno Mango Vinaigrette The vinaigrette may be used to dress thin slices of sushi-grade fluke or briefly sautÊed scallops, poached shrimp, sautÊed fluke or flounder.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 6 4-ounce ramekins generously with Pam. 1. Combine the chocolate, cocoa powder and the butter in a double boiler or a stainless steel bowl, straddling a saucepan with water, creating a double boiler, making sure the water below does not touch the upper bowl. Allow ingredients in upper bowl to melt slowly over low heat. Set aside. 2. Separate the yolks from the egg whites. Place yolks in an electric stand mixer fitted with whip or electric hand beater and beat the yolks with 2 tablespoons sugar until light yellow in color, about 6 to 8 minutes until the mixture ribbons. Temper the beaten yolks by slowly whisking them into the cooled melted chocolate and stir to mix.     3. Using the same clean mixer and whip, beat the egg whites for a few seconds until bubbly and add remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and continue to beat until stiff, but not dry, peaks form. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Divide half the chocolate mixture evenly between the ramekins. Place 1 tablespoon each of Nutella and fluff in the center of each and gently spoon in the remaining chocolate mixture over them. Place ramekins on a sheet pan and bake in preheated oven for 18 minutes. Remove from oven. NOTE: Cakes will deflate as they cool. Invert the cakes onto dessert plates. Serve warm with a scoop of hazelnut gelato or other flavor of your choice. Visit Silvia’s website at www.savoringthehamptons. com to see her blog and more recipes.

Andrra A new waterfront restaurant and lounge offering sunset views and mouthwatering seafood and chops with bold Mediterranean flare. The decor is upscale but relaxed, the bar scene is elegant, vibrant and fun! I dined at Andrra on Monday night with fellow Dan’s writer Kate Maier. We quite enjoyed the Mediterranean-inspired dishes! The fish dishes were very light, but with a ton of flavor. Mama’s Mussles are my particular favorite. Come for the sunsets, stay for the delicious and unique food. And the full bar offers a selection of wines that pair perfectly with the eclectic dishes.

The Sandcastle of Your Family’s Dreams By KELLY ANN KRIEGER


oe Farrrell founded Farrell Building Co. in 1996 and hit the ground running with his reputation of building spectacular high-end mega mansions. Since then, Farrell Building Co. has designed and completed over 100 elegant homes in the Hamptons. His own home, The Sandcastle, is the stuff of legend. Imagine 31,000 square feet of sheer perfection. Builder Joe Farrell and his wife Kristen not only imagined it, but also built their dream home also known as “The Sandcastle.” This luxurious 12 bedroom, 12 bath mansion nestled on an 11½- acre estate on Halsey Lane in Bridgehampton is the crème de le crème of mega mansions.

them? Other standout features include: an elevator, a professional chef’s kitchen with a butlers pantry and a walk-in fridge as well as a double living room with two fireplaces, a formal dining room with a fireplace and Bordeaux walnut floors with radiant heat. Car enthusiasts will enjoy the convenience of an underground garage with hydraulic lift. And future recording artists and dancers can sing a few tunes in the karaoke room or dance the night away in the in-house disco. There is no way you will ever be bored staying in this unbelievable mansion. There is something for

everyone and if not, Joe Farrell will build it. So, if you’re in the market for this gem of a home, the Sandcastle is listed with Gary DePersia of the Corcoran Group and Chris Burnside of Brown Harris Stevens for $43,500,000. Or, if you wish to take just a two-week vacation, the home is also available for rent. The Sandcastle was also featured in the channel 4 program “Open House NYC.” Check it out, it is worth watching on the online feed. In 2010, the home fetched $500,000 for two weeks in August. This impressive mega mansion is definitely an example of the fact that dreams really do come true.



Farrell Building Co.


THE Sandcastle

This mansion was hardly an overnight creation. It took 18 months to complete and over 100 dedicated tradesmen working day and night to finish every detail with great care. What a sight to see from beginning to end. With the best in the business fiercely at work, there was no room for error and the end product speaks for itself. Where do we begin? Let’s start from the ground up—in the lower level with its 10-seat movie theater adorned with all the makings of a state-of-the-art Hollywood theater including an impressive twinkling starry night planetarium ceiling. Next up, anyone in the mood for bowling?—play a game in the mansion’s professional two-lane bowling alley or perhaps you prefer to play a game of golf in the Sandcastle’s virtual golf simulator. For those who like more extreme sports, make your way over to the indoor half pipe skateboard ramp and rock-climbing wall or racquetball, squash and basketball courts. When you’re ready to play outdoors, gather some friends for a game of tennis, baseball or lacrosse. You may even find Michael Phelps swimming in the luxurious 60 x 20 Gunite pool (complete with an electric cover and underwater stereo system). After all Phelps deserves only the best in preparation for the summer Olympics. And at the end of the day why not melt your worries away at the professional in-house spa and sauna room complete with heated massage tables, steam, sauna and Jacuzzi. I’m sure Joe and Kristen look forward to retreat to their 2,800-square foot master suite complete with a dressing area, master bath and walk-in closet each night. The other 11 ensuite bedrooms are also elegantly designed and offer plenty of space for houseguests. The houseguests may want to become permanent residents, could you blame

SPECTACULAR SOLAR HOUSE CLOSE TO BEACH, TENNIS AND GOLF Newly constructed and never before lived in, this beautifully-appointed new home offers 4 bedrooms, dog-friendly, electrical generator plus heated pool. Beautiful Peconic Bay beach with boat launch access is close by as are three major golf courses and community tennis courts. Goodies include a 3D smart TV, Blu-ray wi-fi DVD player, Sono wireless sound system and wet bar with wine cooler. Summer at its best! July & August 75K | Full Season 80K
