Most people think the further out east you go the higher are the prices for a gallon of gas. In fact, the gasoline distributers tell us the prices match the economic status of the communities. Shirley, LI, a lower middle class community, has low prices, currently $3.85 a gallon, while Noyac has medium to high prices, currently $4.10. The very highest prices have been earmarked for communities such as Georgica Pond ($5.04), Sagaponack ($5.01), North Haven ($5.01) and Mecox ($4.96), and it is only a fortunate coincidence that none of these communities have a gas station in them. If they did, however, these would be the prices there.

RETRACTION In our commentary headlined “Southampton Town Police Investigation Proceeds” on page 97 of the May 25, 2012, issue of Dan’s Papers, we wrote about police officer Eric Sickles. Our story, which was based primarily on a report in The Independent, stated that Mr. Sickles was the subject of an investigation into allegations that he was involved in selling and buying drugs. According to The Independent’s report, however, the investigation concerns allegations that Mr. Sickles may have been under the influence of drugs, not that he was dealing drugs.

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

DAN’S PAPERS it could have been possible for me to see everyone doing the same thing on every train,” one woman said when it was over.

DOWN IN THE TUBE Peter Max was seen on the subway heading from Southampton to Hampton Bays, carrying a very large painting that barely fit through the door. Also seen on the subway in East Hampton was Tina Fey talking to Kim Cattrall heading east toward Montauk.

MEMORIAL DAY The 10-minute Memorial Day train stoppage went well. It occurred as planned, at exactly 11 a.m. on Monday, Memorial Day. All the trains came to a halt wherever they were on the system, an announcement was made over the loud speakers in all the cars by Gladys Gooding that everybody should stand and remove their hats for one minute in honor of our soldiers overseas and everybody did. With that, “The Star Spangled Banner” was played over the loud speaker. The motormen waited five seconds after it ended and then the trains started. Most everyone was still standing at that point, and a few people got jostled but nothing serious. “What would have made this even better is if from where I was on one train,

The toy poodle that ran off onto the platform from that woman sitting in a subway car in Southampton last week was this week given a little fright trying to do it again. We explained to the woman, a personage of note who lives on Gin Lane, that dogs weren’t permitted on the subway, but Foofie, that is her name (the dog’s name), jumped out of the woman’s canvas bag again at the same location and headed to the platform, this time she didn’t make it. Foofie was hit on both sides by the closing doors, let out a yelp, jumped back in the subway car and back to the canvas bag the woman was carrying. Although the closing doors only gave Foofie a little squeeze before recoiling open, we were subsequently urged by the woman’s husband, (who is a very important person) to do something about the doors and so we are. We are experimenting in the Montauk Yards with new, more sensitive doors that reopen immediately after giving just the slightest touch to a dog or anybody else. To test them, the men in the yard blindfolded one of the German Shepherd watchdogs there so he wouldn’t know he was being tapped by the doors, but the dog lept back when touched and had to be brought under control by handlers. Two employees were bitten.

THOSE WONDERFUL PUSHERS Every summer, beginning with the Memorial Day weekend, we dress 16 interns in football helmets, boxing gloves and chest protectors to work pushing the crowds from the subway platform into the cars. A group picture was taken of them all together on the Hampton Bays platform last week and we’ve posted it on the bulletin board in the company cafeteria. IGNORE THE ADS ON THOSE TWO SUBWAY CARS We’ve had complaints from people who say that the Hamptons is no place for advertisements on the walls for pawn shops, Preparation H, injury lawyers and loan consolidation companies, especially when all these services are offered in Toronto, Canada. As we explained last week, several subway cars from that city are leased by Hampton Subway during the busy summer months. Sorry for what you see up there, but these advertisers pay for those spaces, so they have to be there.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARNIE PARNASSES Our beloved bookkeeper, Arnie Parnasses, celebrated his 53rd birthday with a cake and candles in our cafeteria in Hampton Bays last week. Arnie was allowed a furlough from the county jail for the occasion. We love you, Arnie, even if you did embezzle $28,000. Make them prove it.

THE HAMPTON SUBWAY 80K? Some enthusiastic runners, out from New York and preparing to compete in the Dan’s Papers Potatohampton Minithon in Bridgehampton on June 2, came by our offices yesterday to ask if we’d be interested in holding a Super 80K Marathon. The idea is that some of the most well conditioned runners in the world would compete late at night running the subway tunnels between 2 a.m. when we close for nightly maintenance until 6 a.m. when we reopen. We would be interested in this if the charity was right and there were something left over for us. It would also give the maintenance people the night off.

COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE I am proud of our pushers. I spoke to them when we took the 2012 photograph. I told them to not get too rough. They are unpaid interns and if they were injured doing this work, as happened two years ago, when one thumbed another in the eye, we just let the offender go. The interns aren’t being paid anyway, so we have no liability.

Old Man McGumbus,107-years-old, President of the Shelter Island Committee of Bazooka History and former World War II infantry man who was the only survivor of the first wave of men who landed on the beaches of Normandy, was arrested last week for driving a military tank through the Town of Shelter Island, and blowing up a newly opened record shop. The record shop, which only sells vinyl records and has been attracting hipsters from Brooklyn, irritated the old man when he first heard about it opening in Amagansett. “But, then when they decided to open on Shelter Island, I had to act, these Goddamn hippies are destroying America.” McGumbus, who has access to an M-1 tank (thanks to his financial interests and ownership of the Lockheed Martin Corporation) fired a single warning shot at the record store, which sent hipsters running for the hills. He then lined up a grenade and fired. Police arrested him. They were forced to Taser McGumbus after he resisted arrest. “Is that all you got!??,” McGumbus yelled out, but then he wet his pants and fainted on the ground. McGumbus’s attorney had no comment.

Exclusive Interview Dan’s Papers Talks To One of the Chickens Expecting to Move to Sag Harbor By Dan Rattiner


wo weeks ago, I wrote a story about the new law in Sag Harbor involving raising chickens in private homes. Before this law, chickens were not allowed in the village, before that there was no law. All you had to do was to just go out to a farm, buy some chickens, a rooster, build a coop and listen for dawn when the rooster gets up. You just did it. And you had fresh eggs. The new law says you have to fill out an application, pay a fee, get it approved and before the chickens arrive, build a coop to certain building department specifications, obey the side lot laws so the coop is not too close to a neighbor, see that it’s built in the backyard not in the front, not have a rooster, and not have more than six chickens for any 20,000 square feet of property area (a little less than ½ an acre.) Also, you can’t sell your eggs commercially. A woman who wanted to have chickens at her house, Mare Dianora of Grand Street, worked with the authorities in town to create the new law. Once it was passed, she almost immediately filled out the form to apply to have three chickens. She chose to ask for three. Her house lot is about 13,000 square feet. This village board deliberated amongst themselves and then the village rejected her application. All of it was in order, except that she didn’t meet the 20,000 square foot rule. Dianora said her understanding of the rule was that if it was six chickens allowed at 20,000

square feet, she could have 3 on 10,000 square feet (with some square footage to spare). The village attorney told her no, that was not their interpretation. It was a MINIMUM of 20,000 square feet. Below that, it was no chickens. Dianora pointed out that more than half the homes in Sag Harbor are on less than 20,000 square feet and so they would be discriminated against about having any chickens if they interpreted it that way. The Village held fast. But, they will possibly talk about this new law and re-consider it at their next regularly held meeting on Tuesday, June 12, at 6 pm. All of this was in The Sag Harbor Express. Under the circumstances, since this story was already in circulation, I felt it best, to add another perspective. As Editor in Chief, I decided to go to a farm in Flanders and interview a chicken named Beatrice who I was told was one of the chickens coming down to Sag Harbor. DAN’S PAPERS: How did you get to be one of the chickens that would be going to Sag Harbor? BEATRICE: The farmer here asked us to draw straws. The one with the shortest straw would win. And, the winner could select companions. DAN’S PAPERS: And you won this fair and square? BEATRICE: I really can’t get into it. Let’s just say I went into the barn with my eyes open. That’s all I can say. DAN’S PAPERS: So, after you won how did you decide on which other chickens would come (Continued on next page.) with you?

Chicken (Continued from previous page.) BEATRICE: There are more than 200 chickens here slaving away laying two eggs a day. It’s an assembly line. We talked about it. This would be a great thing for some of us to be going into a private home. I chose Fred of course, and then he and I chose the other hen, Denise. Denise is, far and away, the most beautiful hen here other than me. Fred chose her actually. He’s The Man. DAN’S PAPERS: You know that Fred can’t go. He’s a rooster, right? BEATRICE: We intend to have him dress up as a chicken. This is off the record. Right? I can trust you? DAN’S PAPERS: Of course. But, what if he crows at dawn? BEATRICE: Fred is too cool to crow at dawn. You see him over there? DAN’S PAPERS: Where? BEATRICE: The one with the dark glasses. He leaves the crowing at dawn to others. DAN’S PAPERS: Have you talked to Ms. Whatsher-name about this? She knows who’s coming? BEATRICE: Look, the thing is, I’m not going without Fred. Fred is a wild man. I depend upon him for everything. If he doesn’t go, or if he’s found out and get’s kicked out, none of us will go. I think Ms. Whatever-her-name-is just wants the best. She is going to get the best. That’s us three. Will you look at this place? DAN’S PAPERS: I see hundreds and hundreds

of chickens cheek by jowl running around in this dirt floor pen making all sorts of clucking noises. I see a rooster with dark glasses. BEATRICE: So do you see any chicken better looking than me? DAN’S PAPERS: Can’t say as I do. BEATRICE: This place is a hot house. There’s overcrowding. We get only chicken feed two times a day. That’s it. We’re supposed to lay an egg twice a day. And they use special lights to try and fool us into thinking the sun is shining when its not. We lay better in daylight. It’s crazy. And, if we don’t lay two eggs every day, bad things happen. I don’t want to talk about that further. DAN’S PAPERS: Have you complained about this? BEATRICE: I have complained to the Association for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. We are animals. DAN’S PAPERS: Chickens are animals? BEATRICE: Chickens are animals. Ever see a chicken fly? We aren’t birds. We’re animals and we’re being treated like animals here. I am delighted to be going down to Sag Harbor. DAN’S PAPERS: Have you heard Ms. Dianora’s application was rejected? BEATRICE: Who told you that? It’s six chickens

for 20,000 square feet, three chickens for 12,000. We’re three chickens. Ms. Dianora helped write the ordinance, didn’t she? You are mistaken. DAN’S PAPERS: No, I am not mistaken. BEATRICE: I’m telling you, you’ve got it wrong. It’s three chickens for 12,000 square feet. DAN’S PAPERS: What have they told you about Ms. Dianora’s place? BEATRICE: It’s going to be terrific. It’s the best house in Sag Harbor. We’re going to be part of their family. Special Pets. It has a vast living room. A fireplace. We’ll live in a den right off of it. We’ll do sing-a-longs for them. We’ll strut around to John Phillip Sousa music for them. They’ll applaud and carry us around on their shoulders. No more worries, no more troubles. And, a great view of the water. Also, it’s on Grand Street, which, just from its name, is very grand. And we get to lay an egg whenever we feel like it, not when THEY feel like it. It’s going to be a happy, happy day when we get out of here and go to Sag Harborland. We’re going next week! It’s all been worked out. Look, I have to go. I’ve been doing this interview long enough. Fred just broke up a fight across the way. Look at these angry crowds and now he’s heading over here. Okay? I don’t want to be rude really, but… DAN’S PAPERS: I see his dark glasses are askew. Well thanks very much, Beatrice. BEATRICE: (Running off). Buk Buk Buk.

Local Details Tuckahoe has Broken Voting Booth Lever, Southampton Signage Wrong By Dan Rattiner


ere’s some niggly little things that went wrong in Southampton last week.

BROKEN LEVER Last month one of those little yellow levers inside a polling machine broke screwing up a vote on Proposition 2 at the Tuckahoe School. Because the lever broke in such a way that it could not be seen from the outside, it now is believed it may have reversed the outcome. This proposition asked the citizens to vote yes or no on whether the Tuckahoe School District should authorize the expenditure of $465,000 from the district’s capital reserve

fund to replace deteriorating heating pipes in the crawl spaces of the school. The vote was tallied late that evening after the polls closed and the vote was 120 for and 222 against. So, the proposition failed. Because of the way the lever broke, school board officials initially had no knowledge of that fact and were just baffled that a simple proposition to fix worn out pipes could have failed to pass. The next day, still clueless about this odd outcome, The Southampton Press reported that School Board Chairman Robert Grisnik, thinking the board was being sent a message from the people, said he thought it now necessary for the school board to better educate the citizens on

the importance of capital projects such as this. Then, somebody got the idea that maybe there was something wrong with the polling machine. There were two machines. They wheeled them out of the storage room. The first polling machine, the one used by citizens who’s last name was from M to Z showed that there were voters who approved of the expenditure and some not. Then, they looked at the second machine. Every single citizen who voted on this machine voted No. This couldn’t be just chance. It was either a kind of flashmob conspiracy among the citizenry whose last names begin with A to L, or there was something wrong with the machine. (Continued on next page)

Cat Dies, Dog from Puerto Rico Takes Over By Dan Rattiner


any faithful readers will recall a few weeks ago when I wrote that our cat, who we have had a long, long time, began to step up to the plate as a dog. A year earlier, a lovely Bichon Frisé I’d had for many years died. I’ve never had a time in my life when I didn’t own a dog. But, I mourned Spalding for a year without getting a replacement. During that time, our cat, Hank, who for years and years lurked in

the background, stepped up to the plate to take over. Hank would sleep in the crook of my arm. He’d meet me at the front door and march me in as I came home from work. He would curl up at my feet and stay there. Many people told me it’s not unusual for a cat to replace a dog in a meaningful way like this. “Cats are very underrated,” said our vet, Dr. Turetsky. “Some of them.” Three months ago, with the year up, my wife and I began looking for a dog. Eventually we

adopted one from ARF. Her picture accompanies this article. What we know about our new dog, Bella, is that three surfers from Montauk were down in Rincon, Puerto Rico riding the waves, when Jane Lappin, a Hamptons resident who winters down there and rescues stray dogs, gave this dog and two others to the surfers when they were ready to return to eastern Long Island. They would bring them to ARF here in East Hampton, which they did, and it was there (Continued on next page) we met her, fell for

Local (Continued from previous page.) They opened the back. When they pressed the yellow lever down to vote no, it recorded the no vote back there. When they pressed the yellow lever to vote yes, no yes vote was recorded. Who would tamper with a machine involving a proposition to replace worn out heating pipes? Nobody. Both polling machines were then put back into the storage room, one with a note on it about the need for repair by the polling machine repair company in Woodside, and the other without a note. A re-vote on this proposition has been rescheduled and if the lever is not repaired in time, they will only use the single working polling machine on June 19.

SIGNS SCREW UP Meanwhile in Southampton Village last week, the Village Board received a scathing 15-page parking ordinance analysis pointing out numerous discrepancies in the signage about parking on many streets in the community. The Southampton Press broke this story. On the whole one block length of Jagger Lane, for example, the Village code says there should be one hour limited parking from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. between May 1 and September 30 except Sunday but most signs are missing and those still up say cars may be parked for two hours all year long. There’s a mix-up on Nugent Street where there should be a 15-minute parking sign in front of the Astoria Bank but there isn’t. According to

Ordinance Inspector Angel Perez, this should be a “No Parking” sign. And, there’s another mix-up in front of the Arrow Laundry building on Main Street where there are supposed to be two 15-minute parking spaces with two signs but there is only one space and one sign. There was some discussion about people being able to go to court to overturn parking tickets they got. The feeling around the table was there would really not be any avalanche of such things, so what they should do is just work these out on an as you go basis. It might be a long-term project. “It’s a pretty interesting project,” Mayor Mark Epley told The Southampton Press

her and took her home. “Remember,” we were told, “if things don’t work, you can always bring Bella back.” The reason I started this article writing about Hank the cat was because two weeks after I wrote about him (on the third day we had Bella) Hank died. We had brought Bella home, everybody was making a big fuss over Bella, the dog and cat sniffed each other and said it’s okay, and then, 48 hours later, we found Hank lying on his side gasping for air and clearly in extremis. He was just short of 20 years old— very, very old for a cat—but you can make a case, or I should say a good psychiatrist could make a case that Hank, having seen that his job was done, walked off into the sunset, as they say. Or, alternately that we broke his heart after bringing a new dog in who we seemed to make such a fuss over leaving Hank, as the jilted suitor, to pine away after all he had done for us by becoming a dog. We miss Hank. But, we do dote over Bella. She appears to be about two thirds King Charles and one-third Jack Russell. She weighs 15 pounds. She has soft, sleek fur the color of a pinto pony and, upon seeing any other dog anywhere, has this sensational habit of issuing a happy bark and then leaping straight up in the air. All four feet leave the ground at the same time. She’s levitating. I’ve never seen a dog do that, but then, I’m told I’ve never been in the company of a Jack Russell, which does. Bella is alert, mellow and playful. She has dog toys that, if you throw, she fetches. She’s had a litter of puppies, that we have not seen but we can tell. She looks about two years old. We take her back and forth between the city and the country on the Jitney (in a carrying case) and she prances proudly along in Central Park where, of course, when she poops we praise her grandly and pick it up with a baggie inside out (never touches our hand) and throw it in the trash. So this brings us to the interesting story about Bella, that—happened today. I am in East Hampton, my wife is in Manhattan. I have a lot to do today, but I will fit in what needs to be done for Bella. I will feed her and walk her on a leash in our yard. Then, I will need to bring a sample of her poop to Dr. Turetsky so he can examine it for worms. I also am supposed to give Bella a pill for worms, although that will have to be gotten from (Continued on page 40.)

Dog (Continued from page 38.) meetings in a row I have to attend, which I do with Bella at my side and by that time it is past 4 p.m. and I call Dr. Turetsky and he is no longer open. I have to come tomorrow. At this moment, it is evening and the poop in its bag is still in the glove compartment, but I’m beginning to think that my active little poop machine might manufacture something fresher between now and tomorrow, so should I throw it Bella! out? No, it stays. Aren’t you glad you read this far? Well that’s this story and now there is one even better. Around 6 p.m., with dusk settling in at our house in East Hampton, I lie down on the sofa in the living room to take a 20-minute nap. I begin a nap by reading something from a book for a few minutes. It’s Walter Isaacson’s biography of Benjamin Franklin. And, I’m slipping away and realize I should take my glasses off. I do that setting them somewhere nearby. Bella then jumps up to find a spot between me and the sofa back and she lies down there to join me. Just as I am dozing off, I hear little cracking sounds. I am aware Bella is no longer on the sofa. I wonder what she’s eating. Twenty minutes later, rested, I wake up and can’t find my glasses. I try the coffee table. No glasses. I try under the sofa, no glasses. I have a spare pair out in the car, but these

that had been on my nose are very expensive glasses. I go out to the car to get the spares. Returning, I look at Bella. She is smiling and wagging her tail. “Did YOU take those glasses?” Now I am really on a tear. I take all the pillows off the sofa, try down in the seams. I look in the kitchen. I go upstairs to look by the bed. I come down and, crossing the living room rug, kick something that turns out to be my glasses. But, they are pretty much chewed up. So here is the story, as I piece it together. I take the glasses off just as I am about to go to sleep but all I do is set them on the sofa in the space between my body and the back of the sofa. Bella jumps up and snuggles in that space. There is something poking her. I am now snoring. She finds the offending thing under herself, takes it in her mouth, leaps off the sofa and onto the floor and bites my glasses to death. She thinks she has just removed an offending object from where we were trying to sleep. She is smiling and wagging her tail. “Good Bella,” say I. I think of the poop in the glove compartment. I can take the broken glasses to Dr. Roeloff on my way to Dr. Turetsky. He could get away with just making new frames. So this is all the good stuff just today about life with a dog. People are either for dogs or agin’ ‘em. I’m for them. Dan Rattiner

the good doctor when the time comes. Bella has her breakfast. I have mine. And we go out in the yard for a walk. After messing around a bit, Bella poops. I gather it up in an inside out sandwich bag just as I do in Central Park. But unlike Central Park, I do not throw this in the outside garbage can. I intend to bring it to Dr. Turetsky. So, now I’m carrying it and it is swinging in my hand, a good sized poop, and then, I realize that there is a staff photo being taken this morning exactly at 11 a.m. in front of the new Dan’s Papers building in Southampton and I can’t be late. I look at my watch. Dr. Turetsky’s office is by the Ross School on the Sag Harbor Turnpike. A detour. I will not have time to do this. I am now in the car, with Bella and Bella’s poop, thinking what do I do with this poop? I am not going to get this to the doctor until AFTER the photo, which might be two hours from now. I head out in the car. But, just down the road, turn around and come home. Two things. We do not need the full bag of poop, just a little bit of it. Also, I could get a Ziploc bag that would enclose this stuff more fully. Fact is, in the sandwich bag, I can still smell it. So I go home, get out a Ziploc bag, use a knife to take out a little bit of poop to put it in there, and then zip it shut. As for the sandwich bag, it goes in the garbage can on the way out. I can’t believe I am telling this story. So NOW, where do I put the poop as I head back out? The glove compartment. I head out and we do the shoot. Bella is with me everywhere, so this is nice. But then, there are three scheduled

Brown Jug

A Message in a Jug Found on the Beach Gets Our Mr. Sneiv Scrambling By mr. sneiv


ave you seen the movie Message In a Bottle starring Kevin Costner and Robin Wright Penn? I have and I thought the plot to be somewhat far-fetched. That is until last month. I was walking along the beach in Montauk in peaceful contemplation enjoying the solitude before the crazy summer season starts and I happened upon a bottle. That I was the beneficiary of such a find was somewhat unbelievable. It was really not a bottle but more of a brown jug of sorts and there was some type of algae type growth encapsulating a large portion of the jug. My mind was contemplating that this could

be some significant historical find. Perhaps it was from a long forgotten whaling vessel? After all, years ago Sag Harbor was a very noteworthy East Coast whaling port. I took the jug home, placed a towel under it and it sat on the counter for the next several days. Each time I passed it I came up with another theory as to its origin. Maybe it was from a pirate ship or from the one of the Queen’s tall ships? Finally, with the skill of an untrained archeologist, I gently scraped away the centuries of sea accumulation to revealing the previously hidden exterior. To my dismay, all that was visible were two of the letters on what appeared to be two faded words. The first word was seven letters and began with a P and

the second was four letters and ended with an N. Those were the only clues with which I had to work. It was obvious to me that these letters represented the name of the ship from which the jug had become separated. The Historical Society was unable to offer any suggestion as to the origin and had no such twoword catalogued ship that began with a P and end with an N. Because of my above average intelligence, although most would debate that assertion, I was able to develop a plan that I supposed would yield the answers to my questions. So I gathered friends, who I knew to be good at word games and held a Wheel of Fortune Party at my house. “Seven letters, (Continued on next page.)

Occupy the Hamptons Shuts a Bank Awhile By David lion rattiner


embers of the Occupy the Hamptons Movement—now wouldn’t everybody like to Occupy the Hamptons?—decided they were going to bring things to the next level last week by marching into the Bank of America in East Hampton and making one single demand, a demand that, if heeded, would make the entire

purpose of their bank march worth it. They wanted a fax sent to the President of Bank of America because, gosh darn it, we’re not gonna take it anymore. Ten Occupy members who walked into the bank began to read the statement out loud and said if it wasn’t going to be sent to the President and CEO of the bank, then they weren’t going to leave. The statement read as follows:

“Please vacate the premises immediately. Your personal possessions will be removed and sold at auction…In addition we demand that Bank of America cease and desist all pending actions related to eviction or foreclosure, regardless of cause.” In case you were wondering this exact same statement is read to people going through foreclosure.

Jug (Continued from previous page.) starts with P and four letters, ends in Nâ&#x20AC;?. My Game Show Experts were unable to solve the puzzle and one of them spilled potato chip dip on my couch. In desperation I turned to what I call my â&#x20AC;&#x153;alcohol plan.â&#x20AC;? Often during periods of intense inebriation, I get extreme clarity. Like a mad artist, I am able to channel ideas and concepts that I would not have otherwise. It worked for Jackson Pollack. At the liquor store I searched for the perfect inspiration. I decided on a large bottle of whiskey that had a tall ship on the label. When I got home, I placed the brown jug and the bottle of whiskey on the coffee table in front of me. Four shots later I was hammered. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the wheels started turning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What

My Game Show Experts were unable to solve the puzzle, and one of them spilled potato chip dip on my couch. if I popped the cork to see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inside?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; With the precision of a drunk surgeon, I was able to remove the cork and inside, just like in the movies, I found a hand written note: It read: It is too late for me, for on the morrow or the next I will surely pass. Whoever finds this must carry the torch. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen it before in the homeland of my people. The governments seek to take our liberties.

water passageways. Whosoever finds this must unite the natives and resist the onslaught. Find a way and you will be blessed all the days of your life. Anna Bell Now I was burdened by the notion that I had some responsibility related to having read these words. Should I start an East End Militia and be prepared for some type of terroristlike attack? I could not rest until I had the answers to my questions. The next day, after my hangover had somewhat subsided, I broke down and contacted a Maritime Forensic Expert in Massachusetts, and asked him to interpret the find. I over-nighted him the jug and a check for $6,000.00. Shortly thereafter I received back a certified letter: Mr Sneiv, I received your package and cashiers check. Mystery solved. Anna Bell was a long time resident of Montauk. She passed in 2010 at the age of 92. Originally from England, my sources tell me, she often verbalized her disappointment with the seasonal influx of tourists to the East End. My wife recognized the jug and I was able to confirm it is Pottery Barn circa 2009. Sincerely, Robert Yardley Welcome to Summer in the Hamptons! I am going to stay drunk until after Labor Day.

The bank closed down briefly and there was a police response by East Hampton. The organizers of the event considered the entire thing a success. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean to sound like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m turning into this ultra conservative, but I simply donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sympathize with the Occupy Movement. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fault that they took out a loan they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford. McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is not to blame because they and their kids are getting fat, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fault they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a job. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OUR fault for allowing ourselves to believe that we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be in financial trouble if we take on tremendous debt, that we refuse to do work that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a â&#x20AC;&#x153;positionâ&#x20AC;? and that we continue eating foods that are so obviously horrendous for our health. If I saw any real purpose to the Occupy Movement, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d subscribe to it, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my opinion. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even more crazy is that the banks that they hate so much are suffering dramatically, but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because of Occupy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because of their own moronic lending practices that are now biting them in the butt. If we really want to hurt the banks, we should never take out any loans like we did when we got our pottery degree from Arizona State. THATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S HOW THEY MAKE MONEY! Back in November I went down to Zuccotti Park in New York City to see the Occupy Wall Street Movement. I was kind of surprised by what I saw. It was a little late, maybe around 11 p.m., and what I witnessed was a pretty small area loaded with tents. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say the whole space was about the size of three basketball courts. Maybe a little bigger, but I had imagined something much larger. It was very quiet. Many people were sleeping. I walked through, (continued on page 46)

Captain Marvel Scrapped What is Fawcett City Going to do Without My Favorite Superhero? By Dan Rattiner


arlier this year, another tie to my lost youth was cut. My very favorite comic book character, Captain Marvel, was sent off into the sunset. In my youth, Captain Marvel was, along with Superman, one of the leading superheroes in our universe. They never worked together. Captain Marvel had his own comic books and own big city, Fawcett City, to work in. Superman (and later Superwoman and Superboy) had different comic books and worked in Metropolis. I rooted for Captain Marvel. Bandits could be holding up a bank while nearby Billy Batson was crossing the street. Batson would shout this command: SHAZAM!! A jagged lightning bolt would come down from the sky and smack him, which turned him immediately into Captain Marvel, complete with cape, sleek indestructible uniform and boots. Then he’d fly

over and pick up the bandits and haul them off to jail. Then, he’d say SHAZAM!! again and turn back into Billy Batson crossing the street. Superman, by contrast, didn’t get his superpowers by a bolt from heaven. He was Superman, right there, with his uniform on as underclothes and over that his disguise—a hat, glasses, business suit and tie and a fake name, Clark Kent, who was this harmless, bungling newspaper reporter. He’d see a burglar—he still does this—and he’d run into a closet or bathroom or, more often than not, a telephone booth and take off all his Clark Kent clothes. He’d bound out as Superman and just jump off into space to fly over and take the bandits off to jail, then go back to where he left his disguise and put it back on. This was very dishonest is what I thought back then. He’s lying to everyone. I was seven years old.

I told my friends that I preferred Captain Marvel. Some of them agreed with me. Others went with the liar.


nyway, Captain Marvel is going out the door. The owners of this superhero character have created an entirely new superhero to take his place. He looks a lot like Captain Marvel, but he has different clothes. And he goes by a different name: Shazam. Yes. They have a new character who is named what Captain Marvel used to have to say in order to get his superpowers. This is a terribly unfair thing to do to Captain Marvel. It’s bad enough they don’t want him in Fawcett City anymore. Now they have this new Shazam fellow, so if Captain Marvel says Shazam, he gets nothing, but this new fellow shows up? What the hell is that? Fawcett City, by the way, patrolled by Captain Marvel, is a really nice (Continued on page 45.)

Get Ready for Saturday’s PotatoHampton 5K By laura sighinolfi


veryone’s favorite weekly paper—Dan’s Papers—invites walkers, joggers, and runners of all ages to participate in the 34th annual PotatoHampton 5k “mini-thon” that kicks off this Saturday, June 2 at 9 a.m. on Ocean Road, South of Montauk Highway in Bridgehampton. Runners will begin at Militia Park, heading south down Ocean Rd, turning onto Paul’s Lane then Halsey Lane and looping around by Hildreth Lane. It continues back on Ocean Road and finishes at the starting point. This route not only encourages people to participate in feel-good exercise for a great cause, but also provides a little touristic sightseeing route including passing the windmill on

Ocean Road and horse farms along Bridge Lane. PotatoHampton was the very first charitable 5k runs to ever hit the Hamptons. It all began when a New York detective and marathon runner suggested to our editor Dan Rattiner, that a race take place out here in the Hamptons. Shortly after the idea was introduced, Dan organized the operation and poof—PotatoHampton was born! On May 28, 1978 over 500 runners participated in the first ever Hampton’s marathon and the tradition is still running strong three decades later. Its name was established back in 1978 when the original 10k course took participants past acres of what were then potato farms. As Bridgehampton transitioned and developed,

local potato farms were replaced with horse farms and vacation homes. Local runners and Hamptons summer residents have favored the “mini-thon” for its contributions towards local charities, and for its picturesque run. Registration is open to participants at 7:30 a.m, with the race starting at nine. All partakers are required to pay a small fee of $30 advance/$35 day of event. Proceeds will benefit Jordan’s Initiative—a local nonprofit organization established to honor the life of Jordan Christian Haerter, a 19-year-old marine who was tragically killed by a vehicle-borne in Ramadi, Iraq on April 22, 2008. Jordan’s father Christian Haerter and partner Michelle Severance (Continued on page 46.)

he only other comic book superheroes in my youth that mattered enough for me to remember were Batman and Robin, the Shadow, the Phantom and Spider-Man. The Phantom had super strength but otherwise just sort of snuck around finding himself in the right place at the right time. Spider-Man couldn’t fly, but he could weave enormously large webs onto the sides of skyscrapers and swing from them to get from place to place. As for the Shadow, he was invisible. He could just walk through walls and nobody could see him. He’d just scare the bad guys into surrendering. He’d use an invisible telephone to call the commissioner to send some cops over to make the arrest and the commissioner would. I didn’t give much of a hoot about Batman and Robin, either. It seemed they lived in an extremely well appointed apartment hollowed out inside a cave. Batman was actually a millionaire bachelor named Bruce Wayne. It’s never been explained how Bruce Wayne turns into Batman, or invokes Batman, or gets zapped to become Batman, but he does. He also has a sidekick, both before and during the time he is Batman, whose name is Robin. They are called to a crime scene by the commissioner shining a giant searchlight with the image of a bat on it into the night sky. I don’t know how they’d get them during the day. Come to think of it, bats sleep during the day. Batman has a neat car and it gets him where he needs to go fast. I wasn’t impressed with Batman or Robin or anyone else. I loved Captain Marvel.


was concerned enough about Captain Marvel to want to know why he was being retired after all these years. Had he done something wrong? Had he been seriously injured? Would he retire on a pension? What I learned is this. Years ago, Superman sued Captain Marvel for loss of business, saying that Superman held the copyright to all of the superpowers. And Superman won. So now, Captain Marvel can’t even use his own name— this gets worse by the minute—and has been beaten, not by an evil monster, alien or bad guy, but by some lawyers. This is just so sad. There are other superheroes, more recently come on the scene, that live by magic words. Johnny Thunder turns himself into Thunderbolt by shouting “cei-u.” There’s somebody in Harry Potter who kills people by uttering a curse “Avada Kedavra” which is pretty close to abracadabra. But that seems to be it. If anybody knows Captain Marvel, give him this message. If there is anything I can do, just let me know.

I heard one guy talking to another that he and his group had come to New York from Arkansas and he was happy to be sleeping at Zuccotti Park. “Yeah, we’ll be staying here for the next eight days and then we’re going to head back home.” There is little doubt in my mind that some people were there because they want the economy to improve, want their own situations to improve, and they are feeling hopeless. But I can tell you that from what I saw, they are not in the majority. Most people were having a good time at the good old free campground in New York and they were there for the pure adventure of it. It didn’t feel right to me. I consider myself a pretty open minded, even liberal guy. But I didn’t feel good about what I saw back them. I wish I had some answers for people who subscribe to Occupy Wall Street and Occupy The Hamptons.

You Can Farm Salt in the Hamptons By stacy dermont


’m from a land called upstate so, by my standards, Steven Judelson doesn’t look, or talk, like a farmer. In fact, he’s not like any farmer I’ve ever met before—he’s a salt farmer. How has no one thought of harvesting salt on the East End before? Here we are, surrounded by the salty sea. The Native Americans had their ways of gleaning salt from the water— what have we locavores been waiting for? Judelson and his wife Natalie went into the salt business full-time just last year. Several years ago, when Judelson’s real estate business had slowed way down, Natalie told him, “Go and do something.” So he took to hauling in buckets of seawater.

The couple has been producing their own salt for about 15 years. In the past they made a few ounces about every six months by evaporating a few gallons of seawater. Today their company, Amagansett Sea Salt, strives to keep up with buyers—selling as much as five pounds at a time, derived from their 500-gallon evaporation system. Judelson tells me that last year was “all about who would buy it.” This year they’re going great guns at the East Hampton, Montauk and Sag Harbor Farmers Markets. Their salts are also available online and from the Wolffer Estate Vineyard gift shop in Sagaponack. One gallon of local seawater evaporates down to about three ounces of salt. But it varies. As Judelson told me, “It’s not science, it’s not

art. Each time it’s a little bit different.” He’s enthralled by the ever-changing nature of the ocean. He told me that at different times of the year the water, and hence the salt, has a different flavor. His eyes sparkled when he pointed out that the water changes from day to day, “it could be clear or green or very blue.” It’s apparent that he loves what he does. You may be wondering what that is. First he takes in local seawater—he does not flood a salt plain as many traditional salt farmers do—he fills 55-gallon drums with the local water. Then it undergoes filtering and “sedimenting” to render it crystal clear. The water is then “planted” (poured) into large food grade plastic trays with covers. These trays are set up on land the Judelsons have leased from the Peconic Land Trust. The East End’s first salt farm. There the water is left to evaporate, courtesy of the sun. But never at precisely the same rate. This solar evaporation on a natural basis is a function of temperature, wind velocity and surface area. Judelson is getting good at predicting the outcome. Sometimes he lets it ride out its natural course, sometimes he adds more water to a tray already in process. And, when it just doesn’t seem to be a good batch, he gives it back to nature. Judelson is assisted this summer by intern Isabelle Hanson from Huntington. He has traveled the world to make a study of different salt-making techniques. And what has been his wife Natalie Judelson’s contribution to the salt business, besides willing it into being with her initial command? She follows her own inspiration and gives the salt unique flavors. Of course they leave some of the salt they produce unflavored, plain. Natalie has developed flavors that include Southampton (featuring Madagascar vanilla, intended for both sweet and savory dishes), Bridgehampton Blend (with dill and fennel seeds for flavoring poultry or fish) and Orient Point Blend which, with its Sichuan peppers and ginger, has an Asian or “Oriental” flavor profile. She plays with different flavors, at first just doing a limited run of new varieties. Next week look for their new Lazy Point Blend that will feature lime zest and mint – perfect for a margarita or mojito. The Judelsons are currently working with Wolffer winemaker Roman Roth to develop some wine-flavored salts. How local is that? This year was all about “where can we bring this?” Well, some of the East End restaurants now using these local salts include South Edison in Montauk and Nick & Toni’s in East Hampton. Bulk customers include a restaurant in Philadelphia. And, if last year is any predictor, they will sell out all of their flavors come holiday gift-giving season. Judelson describes their first holiday season is business as “out of control.” I bought a jar for my parents’ anniversary last fall. Because it said “Sag Harbor” on it, it seemed special. They really liked the flavor. I tried it for the first time at last Saturday’s Sag Harbor Farmers Market. Intern Isabelle encouraged me to just try two or three crystals on a small slice of cucumber. It was very good indeed, bright without bitterness. Amagansett Sea Salt Co., www., 631-731-3053.

The ongoing dispute between the EEEA and local municipalities surfaced last year, when LIPA and Verizon apparently agreed to the installation of the lechis on their utility poles. However, the local towns argued that the poles are within their right of way, and EEEA must obtain proper permits to construct the eruv boundary. The EEEA contested the town’s ruling and filed a lawsuit against the Village of Quogue, Westhampton Beach, and the Town of Southampton. Last November, the EEEA lost a round in federal court when Judge Leonard D. Wexler of the U.S. District Court in Central Islip, denied the request made by the association. The federal judge made his decision on the grounds that the plaintiffs, the EEEA, never applied to Southampton Town to secure permits to attach the lechis to utility poles. The EEEA, though, has filed an application with the Village of Quogue, has yet to file similar applications with Westhampton Beach Village or Southampton Town. “Having considered the EEEA’s application… we find that grant of the application is not mandated by law, and for the reasons set forth above, we deny it,” concludes the Board of Trustees in their official statement.

Go Out in Your Garden and Eat Your Salad By joan baum


t’s a great title and a great idea: Leave No Child Inside, a national movement that’s been under way for a few years to connect environmental education and common core curricula. Although the Bridgehampton Union Free School District is already on board with an edible garden project that links hands-on greenhouse activities and some upper-grade classes, it’s now embarking on a significant school-wide initiative that it hopes to implement this fall. Under the direction of Superintendent of Schools Dr. Lois Favre, connections between edible gardens and curricula K-8 will be established in ways likely to prove exemplary. Starting June 26, the school will host a threeday Summer Curriculum Writing Greenhouse Project, open to teachers from East End school districts who will develop lesson plans on Greenhouse Studies Across the Curriculum. Workshop participants, two from each school district, will work as teams—K-2, 3-5, 6-8—to write “lesson templates that align with the common core standards.” As a specialist in instruction and curricula development, Dr. Favre hopes that the workshop will result in grade-appropriate units that will enhance youngsters’ skills in reading, writing and math, as well as sow the seed of doing timely and significant work in their communities. She notes that some 8th graders have indicated they are interested in economics, engineering and architecture, as these have been shown to be essential in fostering an edible garden. The school garden, incidentally, is right behind her office, and she takes heart, she says, from what she sees and hears in the after-school program. As for summer vacation, she notes that approximately 20 Middle and High School youngsters (grades 7-12) participate as volunteers in the Bridgehampton Young Farmers Initiative, where they learn how to design a vegetable garden, seed, sow and transplant, develop farm maintenance skills and run an agricultural business. By integrating edible garden activities with units of study in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science, connections are made beyond obvious classes such as Botany or Nutrition and Culinary Arts, thus ensuring that no discipline or grade or cognitive skill is left behind. Or constituency: the Bridgehampton schools will be inviting local farmers to talk not just about growing edible food but also about marketing and selling. In fact, Dr. Favre points out, the kids themselves do the inviting, so their writing skills are on display. Other activities will involve their finding out how to construct cold frames, relating local history to presentday ecological concerns, investigating the technology of going green, and appreciating the artful presentation of nutritious meals. There are also character-building aspects to the initiative, as students collaborate and work with their local communities. Dr. Favre is also moving ahead on plans for a self-operating school cafeteria, looking into arrangements at The Springs School, as well as reading about the Chefs Move to Schools initiative, as promulgated by First Lady Michelle Obama. This program, run through

the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and with a particular eye on combating the “childhood obesity epidemic,” calls on chefs to adopt a school and work with teachers, parents, school nutritionists and administrators “to help educate children and show that nutrition can be fun.” At Bridgehampton, the point-person teacher and slow foods advocate, Judy Ann Carmack-Fayyaz, has been working with Bryan Futterman, owner of Foody’s, Water Mill, and a founder of Project Most, the Seedlings Program at The Springs School. An active member of the 20-school Slow Food East End Edible School Gardens network, he stresses how vital food is to the economy of The East End and how important it is to give students the “power”

of learning about slow foods, edible gardens and career opportunities in these fields. His personal involvement with the youngsters has been to promote awareness about healthy lunches and to demonstrate making fascinating vinaigrettes. Faves?—an “Asian-inspired dressing with sesame and oranges for the older kids. The younger ones go for avocado and cilantro. Yum. Dr. Favre has her cafeteria chef in place and is in the process of hiring a kitchen manager and securing approved vendors. And, oh yes, getting a deer fence!

Tick Prevention Experiment Shows Promising Results By robert sforza


his year’s temperate winter is sure to bring a wild summer for disease-causing parasites like the common deer tick and the burgeoning Southern Lone Star tick, which have become quite a danger throughout the East End. A three-year experiment in tick control in Mashomack Preserve on Shelter Island has shown encouraging results to combat these bothersome pests. Researchers from Cornell University’s natural resources department studied and installed dozens of “four-poster” feeding stations that lure deer to a bin baited with corn, a favorite for deer, and rig the posting with rollers soaked with a tick-killing pesticide called permethrin— commonly found in shampoo for head lice. The system works when a deer rubs against the rollers, the deer’s skin comes in contact with the permethrin and the ticks die by the thousands. The study hypothesized that one station can treat all the deer in about 100 acres. New York had prohibited the use of “fourposter” devices in belief it would increase deer congregation, which perpetuates the —a risk of spreading chronic wasting disease­ contagious neurological disease affecting deer, elk and moose. The study made it a priority to keep direct contact between wildlife to a minimum at the feeding station. In 2005, the Department of Environmental Conservation approved the experiment for these confined areas, where Lyme infections

were severe and chronic wasting disease unknown. After three years of research, the “four-poster” baited deer stations were placed throughout Shelter Island in April 2008. The approval of this experiment marked a departure from the conservation department’s usual overcautious modus operandi, though the procedure received much resistance from hunters who were wary of the idea of permethrin in their venison.


owever, Shelter Island residents were persistent in their claim about the outof- control tick situation, and the project was finally approved. Deer abundance and density, reproductive success, mortality rates, and deer trends were all carefully monitored within the treatment and control areas in the pre-study. Experts reassured skeptic hunters that the pesticide, permethrin, would remain only on the deer’s hair and skin, not in the muscle. Thirty-nine deer were sampled for permethrin detections within their neck muscles between 2008 and 2010, six deer sampled positive. However, all deer tested negative for the pesticide in their hindquarter muscles and livers. The outcome was excellent: Tick populations were reduced by more than 90%, according to Cornell’s study issued last year. Each individual year marked an incremental decrease in tick density. Despite an unfavorable year for ticks in 2010,

significant reductions were noted from levels in 2008.


lthough the report only counts in passing numbers on the Southern Lone Star Tick, it cataloged a decline in that tick population on the small island. However, numbers of the Southern Lone Star tick remain high in Montauk, where they now outnumber the common deer tick. Researchers were cautious about predicting a comparable drop in Lyme disease because so many factors are involved in its spread. But the experiment, which ended last year, seems well worth continuing and expanding to other parts of Long Island. This may be considered by the state’s conservation department. There are over 16,000 cases of Lyme disease that occur each year in the United States. Unfortunately, the South Fork, due to its moist climate and proximity to the ocean, its populated landscape surrounded by ample marshlands or heavily wooded areas, is the supreme breeding ground for such nuisances. The deer tick remains the primary cause of Lyme disease in the United States. The disease begins with a distinctive rash and flulike symptoms, and, in some cases, can progress to a more serious disease with complications affecting other body organs.


ncidentally, the study did not document any significant correlation between deer-vehicle collisions and proximity of four-poster stations.

When Stern announced in 2004 he would be leaving terrestrial radio within the year for Sirius satellite radio, the number of subscribers rose dramatically. His most recent media foray aired a few weeks ago, when Stern joined the panel of judges on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Got Talent.â&#x20AC;? The on-line community of Stern fans enjoyed every observation as Stern commented on various acts from 7-year-old rappers to back-flipping Labradoodles. Wherever Stern goes, his fans follow. Stern grew up on Long Island. His father, co-owner of a Manhattan recording studio, would occasionally take Stern to work with him, where he saw actors like Wally Cox, Don Adams and Larry Storch recording dialogue for cartoons. From a very early age, Stern knew he wanted to be in radio. In 1973, at the Boston University campus radio station, Stern got his first show, playing records and reading the news. He also had a comedy show with friends called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The King Schmaltz Bagel Hour.â&#x20AC;? After graduation, Stern worked at radio stations in Westchester and then Hartford, where he met the overnight disc jockey, Fred Norris, who would become his producer and writer for the next 30 plus years.

There are Howard Stern fans everywhere, but New York and Howard Stern go together like hockey and toothless Canadians. Ever since 1982, when WNBC hired him to host an afternoon slot, Howard Stern has claimed his own spot in the New York zeitgeistâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;smart, funny, in your face, and totally unpredictable. Riffing on current events, making prank phone calls with George Takei, or talking to strippers and dwarves, Stern has won the loyalty of millions, winning Billboardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National syndicated Air Personality of the Year eight times. He has written two best-selling books, Private Parts and Miss America and played himself in the movie Private Parts, which raked in $41.2 million for Stern and his radio show staff. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not counting international markets. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even run for Governor of the Empire State. While he eventually withdrew his candidacy, subsequent winner George Pataki signed â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Howard Stern Bill,â&#x20AC;? stating that construction on state roads in New York and Long Island should be limited to nighttime. For this alone, Stern has

continued to refine his on-air personality. Next, Stern went to Washington, DC’s rock station WWDC, hosting mornings. It was there that Stern first began working with Robin Quivers, who became an integral part of Stern’s “Wack Pack.” She was a former Air Force Captain with a nursing degree who had come to DC from WFBR in Baltimore. Quivers job was to read the news during Stern’s show. An enduring partnership was soon born. She was the perfect counterpart to Stern, a “voice of reason” amidst the insanity. Although Stern tripled WWDC’s morning ratings, there was constant stress with the station management. It was time for Stern to come home to New York. In1982 New Yorkers turned their dials to WNBC in the afternoons and for a lot of us, it was love. Even in a pre-Facebook, pre-tweet environment, the word got around quickly that Stern’s show was not to be missed. It only took one year for Stern to make his show the highest-rated program that WNBC had seen for the last four

years. Unfortunately, it only took WNBC three years to decide that the controversial Stern was too much for management’s taste. Citing “conceptual differences,” WNBC fired Stern and Quivers in September of 1985.

Hamptons TV, WVVH-TV Celebrates its 20th Birthday


magine sitting in the front row of “The Today Show” in 1957 with legendary host Dave Garroway at NBC Studios in New York. Then, imagine how that experience would inspire a life-long mission. For brothers Greg and Ernie Schimizzi, they were immediately drawn to the magic of television and committed to one day fulfilling their dream of working in the entertainment industry. Today, the Schmizzi brothers are two of the most admired and well-liked men in the television industry as the proud owners and co-founders of the hugely successful Hamptons TV, WVVH-TV, which is currently celebrating 20 years of great television. But, like many amazing achievements in life, it took a lot of dedication to find that perfect niche in an otherwise competitive business. This family-oriented dynamic duo may have started from humble beginnings, but they were destined for greatness at a young age. Sadly, their father, Joseph, who often took his sons to the NBC studio, passed away at the age of 46 and their mother, a dressmaker who worked with the likes of Oleg Cassini was left to raise Greg and Ernie on her own. Mrs. Schimizzi played an integral role in their future, and she encouraged her sons to pursue their interests and education to the fullest. They continued their education at New York University where they both earned degrees and today still remain an active part of the NYU family. With the love and support of their mother, Greg and Ernie had the confidence and passion they needed to succeed in their future endeavors. Always intrigued and challenged by new innovations, the brothers worked together to brainstorm ideas, and in 1971, the Schimizzi brothers invented an anti-theft device for automobile trunks. The invention would prove profitable, but not without obstacles and a lesson in trust. Fraught with rejection from the Detroit auto industry, they later realized that Chrysler actually went on to install the anti-theft device in their cars without their knowledge. They decided to sue for patent infringement. The money awarded would later help finance their future business. In 1972 they collaborated once again, this time co-authoring the historical book September 11, 1776: Americas First Attempt at Peace. By 1977, Video Voice, a film production and distribution company, was born. Thirty-seven years later, this parent company has produced and distributed over 150 motion pictures. In 1994, the brothers bought the last license offered by the FCC for a Long Island broadcast station—UHF 23 Southampton. And so, their journey into the world of television continued. Ernie and Greg would even visit Dan Rattiner in his office to broadcast five-minute segments called “The Dan Report” at the same time that CNN Headline News broadcast in the early years. “We view television as an electronic art form,” Greg said. Every step of the way, Greg and Ernie have maintained an open mind and looked for better ways of reaching a broader audience. And, with a cross cultural variety of programming, they have made an enormous impact on their Hispanic audience.

Today, WVVH-TV is watched in over five million homes. It continues to deliver the latest in news and entertainment. Shows include the award-winning “American Dream Show” with host Ingrid Lemme, “The Daily Buzz,” coverage of the Hamptons International Film Festival and the Hampton Classic, “In The Mixx” with host Gina Glickman Giordan and “The Real Hamptons” with host Michael Wudyka. The station is continuously evolving. WVVH-TV has also partnered with East Hampton Studio, a 31,000 square foot state-ofthe-art space owned by Wudyka. The studio is the perfect setting for broadcasts and has been the venue for an array of events. It also offers motion picture production space.

Greg and Ernie Schimizzi are two of the most down to earth people with incredible insight and cutting edge style. Their passion for the art of film and television is something they share with up-and-coming graduates and enthusiasts. “We are kids at heart and the success of WVVHTV is a dream come true,” said Ernie. “We like to support young filmmakers,” said Greg. Greg and Ernie Schmizzi are looking to the future and thinking where the next 20 years WVVH-TV will take Hamptons viewers. Stay tuned! WVVH-TV can be seen on Cablevision Channel 78, on Fios Channel 14, Web stream, Smartphone and YouTube at

New Bereavement Summer Camp Opens By laura sighinolfi


araine Gordon, a licensed clinical social worker with additional training as an experiential therapist has dedicated her time to creating Time For Teens is a nonprofit organization that is designed to help adolescents from the ages of 12 to19 cope with grief after experiencing a traumatic loss. Gordon’s organization has allowed teenagers to defeat grief with a four-day bereavement retreat held every August. Gordon’s camp focuses primarily on the needs of the teens providing an environment for teenagers to partake in activities that they enjoy such as, kayaking, yoga, and other daily sport activities. “I did other bereavement programs and saw that there was a huge gap in services for teens between the ages of 12 and 19 and realized they needed a program that was specific to their needs and interests, so I started Time For Teens in 2007.” Gordon says. Gordon’s innovation to bereavement camps is her ability to go outside traditional group therapy. Gordon encourages teens to cope through the mourning process with creative expression through experiential therapy. “Experiential therapy is a key component to the program and a life-changing, effective technique.” Gordon says. “It is much more effective than traditional talk therapy.” An example of experimental therapy which is encouraged at the bereavement camp is  psychodrama, a therapeutic technique incorporating elements of theatre. This

activity allows teenagers to work through their traumatic experience with role-play. It is known as an effective technique because it allows teenagers to recreate their real-life situations, and by acting them out in the present, ultimately allows them the opportunity to understand the situation in their lives. “I am also an actor and so the therapeutic and creative components are of equal importance for the healing process, in my professional opinion. We do improvisational exercises as warm ups to get the group connected quickly and alleviate anxiety on that first day” she explains. Along with psychodrama, Gordon also uses other key elements to create a caring environment where teens can indulge themselves in creative activities such as art therapy and creative writing. “Creative outlets are very powerful healing techniques; they allow young people to express themselves in a very non-threatening way and also give them access to trying something new and not having to do it perfectly.” Gordon says. Gordon believes the camp differs greatly from other programs because she allows no more than 20 teenagers to participate in the four-day event. She believes that group size is one of the most significant components of the camp. “The group size allows for a deeper trust and connection with each other, they move as one group throughout the entire week, creating lasting bonds beyond the camp itself,” she says. “It also allows them to meet other teens who know exactly what they are going through.”

Gordon has experienced the misfortune of traumatic loss. When she was 12 years old, she explains, “I lost my sister in a drinking and driving accident. I also lost a significant amount of friends when I was between the ages of 13 and 17. It was a very difficult time and your family can only help you so much, we all needed help from the outside which is what Time for Teens is all about.” Gordon explains that she believes her own personal experience has allowed her to truly empathize with adolescents, “I was in so much pain… but I really could have used a time for teens back then,” she says. Gordon hopes to expand her organization to help kids throughout Long Island. She plans on having a Time For Teens in Nassau County and New York in upcoming years and eventually move the program to gain nation-wide exposure. She has created other new workshops for family members of the teenagers who attended the camp called Time For Healing, which will be a weekend retreat held in September in Southampton. Gordon is also busy throughout the year creating a monthly bereavement group from September through May for the teenagers who attend the camp. If needed, follow-up counseling is available. Time For Teens has recently just opened its doors of their very first office at 149 Hampton Rd. in Southampton village. The grand opening is June 1 and all are invited between the hours of 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. for food, raffles and an opportunity to learn more about the program.

Hillcrest By fred andrews


n my sunset years I opted to become a volunteer fire fighter, the oldest rookie in the known history of Southampton Fire Department, protecting greater Southampton since 1881. At 68 years young, I whipped through the classroom stuff and survived the hands-on boot camp at the Fire Academy at Yaphank. A crisp certificate signed by the governor of New York qualifies me to enter a burning structure— prudently, on hands and knees and burdened, like my brothers and occasional sisters, with 62 pounds of gear: the thick tan turnout coat and pants; those rough leather gloves; the helmet, face mask and air tank, right down to heavy rubber boots with steel inserts in the soles. But that’s not my job. With due allowance for aging knees and diminishing flexibility, I am fire police. Mainly we control traffic at a fire or accident scene. Though I take the obligation most seriously (one year I answered 141 calls, albeit the vast majority trivial), I’m accustomed to describing the experience as something of a lark. By my bemused telling, I am an aging Don Quixote. Jocular or not, I do understand that the fire service holds life or death in its hands. A sobering thought. It is Thursday, January 26, a frigid midwinter evening. I am standing in the intersection of Hillcrest Avenue and North Sea Road, in Southampton Village. Half a block up Hillcrest, two dozen firefighters are trying to knock down a blazing fire in a modest house on the north side of the street, just down from the church. An 81-year-old man fell asleep with a lit cigarette in his hand. That half block of Hillcrest is clogged with Fred Andrews is a retired newspaper editor who served in the Southampton Fire Department from 2005 through 2010, when he moved to Southold. He felt privileged to serve and misses it greatly.

two fire engines and two hook and ladder trucks, the three fire chiefs’ SUVs, a couple of police cars, and the Southampton Volunteer Ambulance. Lines of five-inch hose snake up the hill from the hydrant down at my corner. Three more trucks are parked along North Sea Road, having dispatched their crews to the front. From this distance I can see a couple of “truckies”—the hook and ladder guys—dousing the building from above, working from the elevated aerial basket, probably pushing 400 or 500 gallons a minute. The fire, which began on the ground floor, whooshed up the staircase, a natural chimney. As wet equipment freezes, the guys are fighting both flames and ice, as though nature has marshaled its most malevolent forces in unholy alliance. The sheer violence of that combination is enough to humble anyone. On this particular evening, we go to the mat with nature—and nature wins, exacting a mortal toll. Our very best guys are in the front door quickly, groping through the smoke and the heat for the victim. (Later, three—Dean McNamara, Jason Poremba and Ted Duffey— will be commended for valor.) They find the old man on the floor, slumped against the kitchen door, overcome before he could get out. He’s not a slight load; eight or nine guys strain to hustle him out of the house and into the waiting ambulance. The ambulance tears off. The old man never revives. Not knowing any better, I expect that our department would have experienced such a tragedy maybe every five or six years. Not so, the long-serving guys tell me later. They’ve pulled people out of burning buildings, they’ve seen death in traffic accidents, but this loss of a human soul to a blazing fire was the first in memory. The death was traumatic for the entire department. My young friend Paul Mayo, part of the search team, tells me later of (Continued on next page

         groping around the ground floor, crawling, straining, unable to see in the smoke. On hands and knees, probing with a tool, he poked and prodded into nooks and crannies and corners and under beds. Paul, a new father, was making damned sure his search didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overlook a child. Half a block away, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn that sad history until the next day. With one notable exception, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my job to remain on the periphery of the fire scene, blocking streets, redirecting traffic, keeping it moving, protecting the fire ground from intruders, well-meaning or not. (One midnight we were nearly knocked down when a woman whipped her car around the corner and up Moses Lane to the fire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my house,â&#x20AC;? she cried as she stepped on the gas.)

The only time I get anywhere near a fire is when I help the interior guys change air tanks. The tanks, worn on a back rack and good for no more than 20 minutes, are too cumbersome to remove and replace without help. The fireman stands passively, catching a short break, while we snap open a catch and twist, and twist, and twist, a little black knob to disconnect the air hose. Then we pop a spring release. Off with the empty tank; on with the new; reverse the process. Twisting that little knob takes forever. Done regularly, it makes for a strong wrist. Ask a veteran, What did you do in the war?, and he can tell you that, but little more. Thousands may have perishedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all he knows is what he sees in front of his foxhole. More than once I chafe at being distant from the real action at a fire. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it is with any great cause. For every top dog in the spotlight, thousands of other citizens serve humbly, their gift to their larger community. What I mainly remember at one remove on that tragic evening when an old man died was the cold, the bitter cold, and the biting wind. At ten oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock, it was about 11 degrees. A north wind, 20 miles an hour, give or take, was gusting from Great Peconic Bay a couple of miles away, importing the chill all the way from arctic Canada. Don Fanning, Dave Squirrell and I held that intersection for about an hour and a half. We halted traffic as the pumpers and trucks raced up North Sea and wheeled west up Hillcrest. We closed off Hillcrest with barricades and cones. Now, as we stand shivering, our burden has waned to waving gawkers on past and occasionally opening the barricades for some official vehicle to pass in or out. I am encased in my day-glow lime-green duty jacket with its thick black liner. I never stand stationary, bouncing about like a prizefighter in the ring. As much as I can, I face south along North Sea Road, so the back of my hood takes the brunt of the wind. For all that, I am DansPapers_BlueSky_18.pdf 1 4/6/12 10:43 AM chilled to the bone. I brought the wrong gloves;


ll the next day I am groggy. Only then do I realize what a blow the cold had delivered. That exposure wracked me like a full-body concussion. As it happens, I am up early to take the 6:30 Jitney to Manhattan. On the way to the bus station, something impels me to go see the wound I experienced only from a distance. I veer my Jeep a couple of blocks out of my way and turn up Hillcrest, peering for the remains of all that action. In the pre-dawn darkness, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprisingly hard to locate the right house. I drive past without recognizing a thing. Turning around, I finally pick out the place. The shell of the building still stands, like an empty carton. I see a security SUV in the driveway, nesting back in the shadows. I shiver at the sight of the charred, empty home where fire and smoke stole an old manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life.

my fingers are numb. I can barely hold my flashlight, the heavy-duty model with the lit orange tip, the most visible for directing traffic, day or night. My legs are okay, but my feet are frozen clumps. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a mild winter, so I am in running shoes on this frigid night in late January. After maybe an hour some Samaritan does a coffee-and-cocoa run to the 7-Eleven a long block away. The cocoa is wonderful. My fingers are so cold, I drop the precious cup after only a sip. The cup blows away, tumbling along North Sea Road toward the village. My lieutenant Jason Korte yells, Fred, take a breakâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;go sit in the truck and get warm. The first two times, I shake my head and grin gamely. What I lack in youth, I will make up in grit. The third time around, I can no longer stand it. The gutter is now slush from all that water run-off; trying to skip over, I dunk one shoe, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soaked. My eyes are tearing. When I reach the tr uck, my fingers wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work the door handle. Once inside, I am bliss. The warmth caresses my cheeks; gloves off, my fingers begin to thaw and flex. I breathe easy again. But I am antsy, too antsy to shelter for more than five minutes, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back on the street.

Lonny Price, LUV Come to Guild Hall


heatre luminary Lonny Price is no stranger to the East End and he returns to Guild Hall on June 7 to direct the reprisal of the 1964 Broadway hit LUV. “When the play opened in 1964, it was a huge success,” says Price. “It’s a play that I remembered from years ago, and it’s always been on my mind. And, it’s relevant today and relevant to me.” LUV, which stars Obie-Winner Robert Stanton, Ricardo Chavira of “Desperate Housewives” and emerging theatre personality Jennifer Regan, tells the story of two college friends who are reunited during a failed suicide attempt. In LUV,

Milt stops Harry from jumping off of a bridge, and the two proceed to exchange their hilarious hard-luck stories of life and love. The play reaches new levels of absurdity when Milt realizes that Harry may be the perfect guy to marry his wife Ellen— and thus let him be with the girl he actually loves. “The intention of this play is for the audience to sit back, relax and have a good time,” says Price. “The show is spelled ‘L-U-V’ because of its perversion of real Director Johnny Price love,” says Price. “This play reflects the Price is an actor, writer and director who has hypocrisy and passions of what love really is.” worked in various media. But, theatre is his self-proclaimed “drug of choice,” and Price is exclusively a director now. “I just stopped liking it,” Price says of acting. Directing, however, has come to be Price’s niche, and he especially enjoys it when stage productions are filmed so that they are available to a wider audience. He strives to expose people from all over the world to theatre and enable them to learn about different aspects of the art. Price began his foray into directing with the off-Broadway revival of “The Education of H* Y* M* A* N K* A* P* L* A* N.” He has since directed numerous Broadway and off-Broadway plays as well as several musical productions with the New York Philharmonic. “My primary reason for doing a play is that is has to speak to me in some way,” says Price. “It has to have some relevance to today.” LUV debuted in 1964 and it ran for 901 performances. It was hugely successful, as it earned a Tony nod in 1965 for Best Play and it helped to solidify the careers of its three stars— Alan Arkin, Anne Jackson and Eli Wallach. However, Price puts his own signature style Retr on the Guild Hall revival, especially because acta ble Scre there are no recordings of the Broadway ens Perg original. He enjoys working with shows in & ola Cov various stages of production—from interfacing ers with writers to develop a new show to staging

an already-established play and bringing it to life for a modern audience. “A successful production is all about unity,” says Price. “The writer, director, actors—there has to be one vision, one team, one point of view that we’re all working toward.” “I tend to like to work with people over and over again,” says Price. “You develop a trust.” Price names LUV’s Robert Lloyd Stanton and Steven Sondheim, a composer and lyricist, among his established production partners. Price has consistently returned to the East End. While growing up, he stayed in East Hampton and in Montauk, and his family has a place in Quogue. He has directed at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor, and he will return to Guild Hall in July to read a new play. But for now, LUV is on his mind. “I think people are going to see themselves in this play and in the crazy characters,” says Price. “It will be a really fun time—a hilarious time to think about their own relationships and ideas of love.”

This is Called Satire, People. By David lion Rattiner

I grew up in the Springs section of East Hampton. In my opinion, there was no better place in the world to grow up as a kid. I walked to school growing up, I played in the woods. I built tree houses with my friends in the summertime and played â&#x20AC;&#x153;man huntâ&#x20AC;? in the wintertime. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d run to my neighbors house, knock on the door and ask if my buddy was home. Then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ride bicycles to Maidstone with fishing rods, try to catch crabs or fish, and then weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go home and eat dinner. It was like a Norman Rockwell painting. Since then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard terrible things about Springs. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard that there are now criminal immigrants there. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard that the school system is a nightmare. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard that people there are, in general, bad people, that it is not nice, and that there is a lot of crime due to overpopulation of housing and that Latino kids are in the streets running wild. I live in Southampton now, and havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to Springs in a while, so I decided to see what all the fuss is about. I strapped on my combat boots, left my wallet at home and decided that I would go for a walk through the dangerous and rough hood now known as Springs. I have to say this after my recent walk.

Yep, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty rough there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really gone apparently Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m losing my sex appeal. Or maybe downhill ever since the illegal immigrants itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fact that Spanish guys donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find tall moved in and ruined everything. It was SOOOO white men attractive. much better when all of the bums were there Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad there man. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real bad. Man, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting drunk, raising telling you, all of the their families, opening tough guys and hard up their roofing I grew up in Springs. I walked to families live there. businesses and school. I played in the woods. I built Avoid it. sending their kids to People are raising school there. They say tree houses and went fishing. It was their families, sending those people are so like a Norman Rockwell painting. their kids to school, much less dangerous living in houses, going and difficult than these to the bay beaches, Spanish families that are living there. supporting their community, taking their boats I thought I might get raped, but I avoided out and having outdoor barbecues. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just it while walking down the street there. But pure chaos.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough out there.

EVERYBODY is right. Springs is dangerous. While walking down the street, I was immediately attacked by a Latino kid. He beat me into a bloody pulp, and then when he found out I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have money, he kicked me in the groin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gracias,â&#x20AC;? I said. He then shot me in the leg with a .45 caliber pistol. I walked past the school, the school I grew up in and was met by a street gang known as the Fishing Boys, who now are apparently running the school. They walk around armed with AK-47s, killing people for the sport of it. I then saw an entire family sitting down on the street, panhandling, all of the children were blind from malnutrition. Walking down Gardiner Avenue, the street I grew up on, I saw wild dogs running loose and feeding on the dead bodies of recent gang warfare victims. Several houses were on fire, as police have given up on the area. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basically all on fire. Think Iraq meets Afghanistan meets Vietnam, but all taking place in Ecuador.

Dating Myself Madly By stacy dermont

So I’m in the King Kullen grocery emporium in Bridgehampton, in the baking aisle as is my wont, and overhead it begins to rain sex. Crazyass club sex in the form of The Cult’s 1985 hit “She Sells Sanctuary.” The initial grainy guitar strains made my heart soar and they made me just a little bit weak in the knees. As I threw a bag of (the expensive kind of) chocolate chips into my cart, my hips began to

sway. When the drums kicked in, I pushed my thought that that little bit of classic 80s British cart with newfound purpose. Inside my head I color was a special treat—a bit of humanity in sang along with that quintessential dirty hippie some devious mix of satellite-generated music lead singer Ian Astbury. Not that I really know designed to make sheeple buy more, faster. all the words—I only I tried to remember know all the words all the groceries I would to one song, Olivia “Tainted Love” defined a particular have written down Newton John’s “Please era of my sexually fraught young if I’d been organized Mr. Please,” but that’s enough to make a list. another story entirely. adult angst and “shall I flunk out of It was time to make “She Sells” rocked college?” blues. the big decision— my world for four self check out so as minutes and 23 to avoid potentially seconds and then some piece of crap came on, annoying human contact or a manned checkout I don’t remember who it was—The Outfield? counter to avoid the wide world of computer Michael McDonald? Nickelback? Whatever. I dysfunction? Crap! They both have long lines. Then the most insulting thing happened. The speakers above began to play…no, no it couldn’t be, yes, no, no, is it, surely it’s a cover. THE song. The song that defined a particular era of my sexually fraught young adult angst and “shall I flunk out of college?” blues.

oly mother they’re playing Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love!” That’s MY song. Okay, it was on MTV, but it was nonetheless alternative. I had to go away to college to find another person who listened to this kind of music. In its day “Tainted Love” was only heard by blackclad “art fags.” When I figured out how to make the jukebox in the college sub shop play without putting in a quarter, “Tainted Love” was the song that I would play just before I left the room—to annoy the jocks. It was my signature, my parting blow to mediocrity.


ell, okay, it was on the damn jukebox, but still! It is wrong to lump all 80’s music together in an unholy amalgam. It shouldn’t even be called “80’s music.” It’s not defined by the year it was released—it’s a unique art form, every single (remember singles?) a unique and human collaboration. If Soft Cell’s lead singer Mark Almond never recorded—or did—anything else in his life, he’d still be a hero. Argh! As much as The Cult rocks hard, they may be a bit of a “hair band.” But bands like Soft Cell and their fans were the underdogs of the 1980’s, the people who were constantly getting pushed into lockers but defiantly continued to wear mascara. Back in the day it was not cool to be gay. I could have kept my mascara wearing ways under the Big Brother radar because I was a girl, but I did the punk thing. I never took it off. Blue mascara worn constantly. I just swiped around my eyes with Noxzema in the morning so that the mascara stain stayed in that general area. I might have looked hot if I hadn’t put on the freshman 40 in the 10th grade.


ook, you regular people can have 95% of the 80’s music but leave us, the good people of Goth and wannabe cool our heroes and heroines. Take the Scorpions, the Bangles, Paul Young and Asia. As a good-will gesture I’ll throw in UB40 and you can listen to The Boom Town Rats on Mondays. But leave us our New Order, our Charlie Sexton, our Haircut 100 and, if not that sold-out Echo, at least the Bunnymen. The Smiths are freakin’ mine!

Cover Artist Sonia Grineva By Marion W. Weiss


Born in Moscow, Grineva has traveled the world painting local scenes.

Christopher Obetz

his week’s cover by Sonia Grineva is a familiar one for residents and visitors to the East End. Called “Blossoms on Further Lane,” the image conveys a sense of time and place usually understood by people who live full-time in the Hamptons. Yet Grineva was born in Moscow (receiving a B.A. and M.F.A from the Stroganov Art Institute) and traveled the world painting local scenes. She moved to New York (attending the National Academy of Design) when she was 20 years old, where she continues to paint Manhattan’s many neighborhoods. Whether capturing places near or far, Grineva’s works resonate with energy and passion seen in such diverse locations like Hong Kong, Italy, Provence, Dieppe and Georgia (in the United States). Q: You recently moved your old studio near Washington Square Park to Union Square. Has that affected not only what you paint in New York but how you paint? A: I go up on the roof now and do cityscapes. I have a 360-degree view and I get a lot of ideas and energy from that view. I have also recently gone to Lower Manhattan to paint the Financial Center. But, everything is almost the same. I am still a plein air painter. Q: So do you paint the people on Wall Street? Your art never had people in it, being landscapes, cityscapes and still lifes. A: Yes, I paint lots of people in that area, their

movement, like on Stone Street. Q: Do you sit or stand when you are painting? A: I stand but no longer than three hours when the light lasts.   Q: Wherever or whatever you paint, there is a consistency of style. A: I interpret nature, shapes, design, movement. I like to create relationships and combinations, having to do with colors. But I am now doing more abstraction or semiabstraction.   Q: In the last several months, you have been involved in something different, but still creating art. A: I have written a book, The Colors of the

Soul, about my history, family, different periods of my career, using examples of my watercolors, oils and sketches. It’s 300 pages. I have also contributed to a second book, Planet Stars, in Italian and English, featuring well-known hotels throughout the world. I painted the landscape that surround these hotels.   Q: What are some of the hotels both in the U.S. and overseas? A: There is the New Stone Inn on North Main Street in East Hampton, the Plaza in New York, The Drake in Chicago. There is also a hotel on Lake Como and the Victoria in Sorrento. I learned a lot about the history and culture of the hotels.   Q: Again, you really got to many different and beautiful regions, learning a lot in the process. I know you love learning about a variety of subjects. A: Yes. I went to classes to learn Italian and about the history of music. When I was in Italy, I took cooking classes, mostly how to cook all kinds of pasta: potato with pasta, peas with pasta. Everything. I learned a lot about food in the last year.   Sonia Grineva may be reached through her email: and by calling her 212-627-8499. She is exhibiting at Works Gallery 1250 Madison Ave., New York. 212-996-0300. Her books are available at BookHampton.

Since joining Dan’s over a year ago, I’ve never written a column about Facebook. It’s nothing personal. I have a Facebook page— two of them, actually— which I kind of like and sort of use. And who doesn’t understand the market power of 900 million users, even if half of them might actually be bogus? So why have I never written about Facebook? Probably because there’s never been a really juicy tech angle. Their platform is beyond

simple; it’s idiot proof. It never changes. That’s the point. Sure, the new timeline feature was different, but it can’t compare to the wow factor of a talking iPhone or a 3DHD TV.


hen you think about it, the Facebook business story has been a lot more interesting than the Facebook technology story. This pretty much killed any hope that I would write about it—until finally, the gods of the 24-hour news cycle delivered a Facebook story so compelling that it demanded 700 words from the “Geek” (formerly Captain Microchip). I’m talking about the Facebook IPO, of course. By now you’ve probably heard something about it. After years of speculation (now that’s

an appropriate term) and unprecedented jockeying by the big Wall Street banks, Facebook finally went public on May 14, 2012, with a price of $38. For whatever reason, the stock didn’t immediately rocket to $50 or $60 or whatever wildly optimistic valuation the founders and bankers had modeled. In fact, it did just the opposite. The price quickly began to waver. A flood of “Sell” orders came in. And suddenly, the usually reliable NASDAQ stock market suffered from mysterious trading delays—an “equipment malfunction” that would make Janet Jackson’s infamous Super Bowl boob reveal seem like a Disney cartoon.


few weeks later, it’s safe to say that the bloom is off the rose. The stock has lost billions of market cap. Early investors are crying foul. The Feds are looking into it. The Senate wants to hold hearings too. It’s just a bad scene all around—stuff they definitely would have left on the cutting room floor of The Social Network. So what is Facebook worth? $38? $6? Does it really matter? I don’t know why Facebook stock tumbled, but I do understand what it means for us users: very little. Someday, Facebook will have to figure out how to make money beyond banner and display ads. Do they simply mine the trillions of pieces of user data and cut under-the-table deals with marketers who desperately want to know what you’re really doing at the site? That’s a risky proposition for a now-public company which is in a harsh spotlight and now faces increased government regulation. OK, on to Plan B. Do they charge a monthly “upgrade” fee for better features? Facebook management has sworn time and again that it will always be free, but I think people would gladly pay a few pennies each month in exchange for genuinely worthy product upgrades. And with Facebook’s massive user base, those pennies would quickly add up.

his made me draw an interesting comparison to YouTube. Both platforms have built massive user bases but are struggling to figure out how to profit from those users. YouTube is grounded in video and has built adequate, but not great social networking tools around the video player. It’s more about entertainment and less about social conversation. Facebook, on the other hand, has gone about its business quite differently. It built the simplest user experience and the best social networking tools, along with its mass concentration of users. It’s more about personal connections and updates as opposed to crazy cat videos. To me, the biggest unanswered question about Facebook is this: will they ever deliver a great video experience on top of that social experience? I strongly suspect that the folks at Facebook already have an answer to that question. It’s just a matter of when they decide to tell the rest of us. Then the stock truly will be worth something.


ntil that day arrives, please feel free to “friend,” “like,” and “poke” to your heart’s content. I’ll stick to reading.

Take another look at books... By sally flynn

The Shelter Island Library is alive and well. The engraved bricks—a very clever fundraiser—are starting to show up on the new outdoor reading patio. You can still buy one if you’re interested, go to the website; readshelterisland. org, for more information. One of the Island’s favorite annual events, the Used Book Sale is scheduled to start on Saturday, July 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. I think it’s great that they still call them used books as opposed to “previously viewed” or “aged but never read.” I realize many young people aren’t too familiar with books outside of the school setting. Let me illuminate. We all know that books are used for reading and gaining knowledge, but there are so many more uses that the younger people just don’t know about.

7. Cookbooks. I love cookbooks. I love to see what I could make if I had the time, money, motivation and special pots and pans. 8. Home Decoration books are the crack cocaine of books for women my age. We love to see what our houses could look like with money to burn, a gay friend to help, and a husband with a tool belt. 9. Exercise books. I always think of the quote from Fran Leibowitz when asked about exercising, she said, “Call it want you want, it’s still gym, and I don’t have to do it anymore.” I suggest you buy at least one exercise book in your life. Read it, get through the depression, and burn it. 10. Scrapbooks. I envy women who can

produce nice scrapbooks. They have framed photos, pressed flowers, ephemera from social events. I have shoe boxes of pictures, scraps of paper, eviscerated roses that I tried to press. It looks like a project done by a homeless drunk. 11. “How to...” and “Do It Yourself” books are important for hiding secret papers from your husband or boyfriend. I’ve never met a man who will admit to reading any kind of “How to” book, hell, they won’t even read the instructions on putting together Ikea furniture. So if you need to hide any papers, get a “How to “ book and hide them in there. Fort Knox wouldn’t be safer.  So you see, there’s more to books than just the written word. 

There are so many uses for books!

1. Unlike an iPad, you can buy books with classic titles and leave them in obscure, but obvious places around your house to make people think you read the classics and are therefore erudite. 2. During an argument, nothing throws better than a hardcover book. It’s a great size, has good balance, and if it hits the target, it really hurts. And of course the beaned person will immediately see the error of their ways and capitulate—if not, they get the encyclopedias... 3. There are many excellent books on childrearing these days. Try the advice inside the book first, if that doesn’t work, clock the little s.o.b. in the back of the head with the book. Just remember to hit them with the flat side of the book so it doesn’t leave any marks. 4. A slim book, or one that’s halfway open can balance a wobbly table.  5. A stack of big books with a scarf over them makes a sturdy and attractive coffee table.  6. Keep a book in the car at all times in the summer so you have some form of beneficial distraction while you wait in ferry lines. Ferry lines are part of life here, complaining never shortens them, but a really good book does.

NEWS BRIEFS Bob Lelle Artist Bob Lelle, a 12-year Southampton resident, has died in Paris, France after a brief illness. Lelle was best known for his fanciful collages of the letters of the alphabet. His exhibitions focused on themes, such as Alphabet de la Cuisine, Alphabet de la Musique and Alphabet Graphique. Lelle worked out of a Southampton studio that he designed and built. His art is displayed throughout the United States, primarily in Naples, Fla., New York and the East End of Long Island, and in Paris. An exhibition of Lelle’s latest work, L’Alphabet de la Mode II, will be at Pierre’s Restaurant in Bridgehampton through June 26. There will be a reception to honor the late artist on June 2 between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. A Memorial Service will be held on June 2 at the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Church in Bridgehampton at 10:30 a.m. Anyone who would like to deliver a personal message at the mass can contact Elaine Breaksone at 631-204-0395 or breakstone1@aol. com.

Hat Shop Becomes Historical Landmark HAMPTON BAYS: The Southampton Landmark and Historic Districts Board has approved an application from the Hampton Bays Historical Society to make Lyzon Hat Shop in Hampton Bays a Historic Landmark. The hat shop, located on West Montauk Highway, has been there for almost 100 years, and the actual building has stood for over 150 years. The original structure was built in 1854 and was owned by the King Family, one of the earliest residents in Hampton Bays. It was initially a general store called Good Ground. The store was last renovated in 1915, and it was turned into Lyzon Hat Shop in the early 20th century by Helen King, Walter H. King’s wife. With its new status, it will receive roof renovations and interior renovations in order to preserve the building.

Parrish Sets Opening Date

WATER MILL: The Parrish Art Museum has announced that it will open its new Water Mill location to the public on November 10. Created by acclaimed architects Herzog & de Meuron, the building’s exterior pays homage to the area’s potato barns, and the interior design maximizes the streaming of natural light. Landscape design was orchestrated by Reed Hilderbrand. The museum will offer 34,400 square feet of space set back from Montauk Highway and adjacent to Duck Walk Vineyards. The public’s opening weekend follows a week of private parties for members and supporters, and it coincides with the Veterans Day holiday weekend. The first three days will showcase the museum’s permanent collection. A major reason for building the new museum was to give ample space to mount pieces from the permanent collection, which has rarely been out on display in the past. Admission will be free during the three-day period.

Meschutt Beach is closed for camping

Montauk Boy Scouts Honor Friend MONTAUK: Last month, Montauk Boy Scout Troop 136 brought true meaning to the phrase in their motto “…to help people at all times…” Scout Davin Fischer was born with spinal bifida, a condition that mostly keeps him in a wheelchair, but he has not let that stop him from living a full life. On May 11, fellow scouts surprised Fisher with a new wheelchair that has off-roading capabilities. They worked to raise $12,000 so that their friend could participate in a wider-range of scout activities. Davin’s parents, Lydia and Bob Fischer, noticed a flier for the new Action TrackChair at the Montauket bar and restaurant. The chairs are distributed by Montauk resident Larry Keller, who was injured in a 2009 automobile accident. Earlier this year, Davin was told that he would be able to test drive the chair for a promotional photo shoot. Unbeknownst to him, he was outfitted for his proper size chair during the afternoon. The chair allows him to easily trek down sand, grass and brush paths, and it can be modified to include space for fishing rods, cameras and other outdoor pursuits.

HCB Opening Day

HAMPTON BAYS: Suffolk County officials have recently announced that the 2012 camping season at Meschutt Beach in Hampton Bays is cancelled. Late last year, the Suffolk County Department of Public Works began a drainage and dune restoration project in the Meschutt Beach parking lot, which is where the campers usually stay. As a part of the initiative, the parking lot was resurfaced, and it was necessary to move the camping site for the 2012 season. A proposal to relocate the campers to a site west of the lot was denied by the Suffolk County Council on Environmental Quality. Sources say that people who made reservations to camp at Meschutt will be offered a full refund or options to camp at another site. Suffolk County campers pay a $12 reservation fee plus $15 per night. Plans are in place to open Meschutt for summer 2013.

It’s time to head to the bleachers to support Hamptons Collegiate Baseball, as Opening Day on June 3 is right around the corner! This year Hampton Collegiate Baseball has expanded from a five-team organization to a seven-team organization. HCB is part of the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League. This season, the rosters are made up of players from over 80 national universities. Each team plays a 40-game regular season schedule on area fields. There’s no better way to finish a sun-filled afternoon with the family then with a free-tothe-public-game of competitive baseball. Come cheer on your favorite team!

SOUTH FORK TOO Wolfferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rose and beyond... NORTH FORK CALENDAR

Many things to see and do all week!

Peconic Bay Winery By LENN THOMPSON

Last weekend marked the unofficial start of summer on the East End â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and wine country is most definitely open for business. There was a time when my wife and I would spend nearly every summer weekend exploring the different wines and wineries on the North Fork (we typically save Hamptons trips for the less-trafficked off season). Life is different now â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two kids will do that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but we still visit wine country when we can, even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a single winery between my infant daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s naps. The most important criteria for where we will visit? Family friendliness. We will only go to places that we are comfortable the owners and staff will not only tolerate us visiting as a family but also embrace us. Open spaces are good. Tasting rooms not filled with busloads of potentially over-served customers are too. But, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not willing to taste and drink bad wine just because a winery is well suited to our family situation. Enter Peconic Bay Winery, one of our current favorites and a place where our kids are welcome and our palates are often rewarded. Not every wine is a world-beater, but there are more than enough delicious ones to make a visit worthwhile.

Lovers of crisp, dry white wines should make creamy texture beloved by so many, but the finish sure to taste the newly released Peconic Bay Winery ends with enough acidity to enliven the wine and beg 2011 Steel Fermented Chardonnay ($24).

t’s no secret that the East End of Long Island is an epicurean’s paradise. There is a close connection between our food and our dinner table and quite a few tables wouldn’t be complete without a nice glass of wine. Fortunately, Long Island has that in the barrel, so to speak. The majority of our vineyards are concentrated on Long Island’s North Fork – a drive out to Orient Point showcases acres of picturesque grapes, all neatly kept and awaiting their transformation into a local favorite. But, the South Fork’s wineries and vineyards, set against the jawdropping Hamptons landscape, are equally popular among those looking to infuse an evening with Long Island flavors. The first Long Island winery was established in the early 1970’s and since then the region has gained a solid reputation for producing fine wines in virtually every variety. According to the Long Island Wine Council, East End grapes thrive because of the maritime climate, moderate temperatures, fertile soil and long growing season. The most popular reds include Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, while white wine lovers are inclined toward the Long Island Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. A Long Island rosé also tends to pair perfectly with a hot summer night. Fortunately for the discerning wine connoisseur, the varieties and flavors of an East End wine span a broad range of tastes and finishes. Below is a brief sampling of Long Island’s wineries and vineyards. Many offer tours and tastings. Be sure to refer to Dan’s Papers or for more comprehensive information on Long Island’s wines, details on summer entertainment and live music schedules. Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard (631-369-0100, in Baiting Hollow offers such wines as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Riesling. A selection of Baiting Hollow’s wines is devoted to the vineyard’s horse rescue efforts. Comtesse Therese (631-779-2800, www. in Aquebogue. Wines include: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Rosé, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Comtesse Therese is the only vineyard restaurant on Long Island and the Bistro serves Comtesse Therese wines and dishes created from a variety of locally sourced ingredients. The Lenz Winery (631-734-6010, http://lenzwine. com) in Peconic was founded in 1978 and is one of the oldest wineries in the region. Varieties produced include Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewürztraminer and Merlot. Macari Vineyards (631-298-0100, www. in Mattituck and Cutchogue was founded in 1995. What were once potato fields and farmland has become a vineyard of 180 acres of vines with additional fields of compost, farmland, and a home to cows, goats, Sicilian donkeys and ducks. Recent vintages have yielded Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Rosé. One Woman Wines & Vineyards (631-765-1200, in Southold was founded by Claudia Purita for whom sustainability and selfreliance have always been a way of life. Growing up on her family’s farm in Calabria, Italy, Purita assisted in growing vegetables and wine grapes and raising small animals from a very young age. Look for Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Raphael (631-765-1100 ext. 105, www.raphaelwine. com) in Peconic was born from the vision of owner John Petrocelli, who named the winery in honor of his father and continues a centuries old family tradition of winemaking. Top selling wines include

Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. An old French proverb states, “Only the vines that overlook the water are capable of producing wines of great quality.” Roanoke Vineyards (631-727-4161, www. in Riverhead specializes in such wines as Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This summer, check out their second tasting room on Love Lane in Mattituck.

Sparkling Pointe and Wolffer Estate Vineyard By kelly laffey


s the only vineyard in New York dedicated to producing strictly sparkling wines, Sparkling Pointe in Southold offers a truly unique experience. Only wines from the Champagne region of France can rightfully be called â&#x20AC;&#x153;champagne,â&#x20AC;? but Sparkling Pointeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wines are produced in the traditional French method known as method champenoise. Made from a variety of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, the sparkling wines are true to champagneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roots while infusing a Long Island flair that has been well received in numerous wine circles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sparkling Pointe Wines are made respecting the qualitative French â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Methode Champenoise,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Judy Cordasci, the Private Events Coordinator at Sparkling Pointe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(And) the venue is in the style of a French Country Manor with elegant chandeliers.â&#x20AC;? The pristine white tasting house is both elegant and inviting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s large enough for parties and yet small enough to create an intimate wine-tasting experience. The tertiary Bubble Room, which can be closed off from the rest of the hall for intimate private gatherings, features white couches, a private tasting bar and bubble-like chandeliers for a cozier wine tasting experience. Owners Tom and Cynthia Rosicki fuse their tastes for Brazilian, French and, of course, North Fork culture at their vineyard. True to the celebratory feeling that most often accompanies sparkling wines, Sparkling Pointe will be open late on Fridays for Bossa-Nova Fridays, which will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Bossa-Nova is a type of Brazilian dance. Sparkling Pointe opens at 11 a.m. every day, and closes at 6 p.m. Saturday through Thursday. There will be music on Sunday all summer long. A celebration wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be complete without a bite to eat, and Sparkling Pointe also sells a variety

of local and New York-based products, including cheeses, jams, chips, sausage and cookies to pair with the wine.

A popular East End destination, WĂślffer produces world-class wines,

and the WĂślffer RosĂŠ has become synonymous with a Hamptons summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The estateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; distinctive character is that of European elegance combined with the typicity of the Long Island terroir,â&#x20AC;? says Judy Malone, the Executive Marketing and Communications Director at WĂślffer Estate Vineyard & Stables. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The WĂślffer RosĂŠ is known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Summer in a Bottleâ&#x20AC;? and is often referred to as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wine of the Hamptons.â&#x20AC;? With its warm ochre walls, imported stained glass doors and expansive portico the WĂślffer winery has a welcoming aura that invites all Hamptonites to sample the elegant food-friendly wines. The vineyard also offers cheese and charcuterie plates to pair with tastings. Another favorite locale, the WĂślffer Wine Stand on Montauk Highway boasts breathtaking views of the vineyard. The old farm stand was transformed into a great Hamptons gathering spot in 2008, and today serves up wine, music and incredible sunsets. WĂślffer will have standing entertainment on Thursday and Friday during the summer for those who want to kick-off their weekend with a musicfilled evening. Twilight Thursday will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. at the winery.

arm chic and family friendly, Martha Clara Vineyard in Riverhead produces over 25 types of wine.

There will also be a summer concert series. “It should be noted that we won two very prestigious awards last year. We were the recipient of the Governor’s Cup (for the 2010 NYS Riesling), which is awarded to the best wine in New York State, and the Jefferson Trophy (Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association), which is awarded to the best wine on the East Coast (2010 Estate Reserve Riesling),” says Micieli-Martinez. Martha Clara Vineyards is open seven days a week, with later nights on Saturday and Sunday holidays. They also sell cheese and light snacks to pair with the wine. In addition, you can find their wines at great local restaurants, including Grana, Luce + Hawkins, Jerry and the Mermaid, Claudio’s, Bayview Inn, Amano, Love Lane Kitchen and the Southampton Publick House.

North Fork Wine Country

Lieb Cellars Lieb Cellars has a long tradition of growing premium quality vines on Long Island. Established in 1992, Lieb Cellars is one of the North Fork’s older vineyards. And, if Lieb’s expansion is any indication, the wines have only grown more popular with age. “Lieb Cellars was one of the first to buy and build a winery on the North Fork. Its micro climate and terrior make it unique,” says Gary Madden, who works in Production at Lieb Cellars. “We are also the first, and have the largest plantings of Pinot Blanc grapes.” Lieb will open a second tasting room this summer on Oregon Road in Cutchogue. The winery offers wine flights and special wines by the glass that rotate on a daily basis. Though the new tasting room will be

We Survived Memorial Day Weekend By kate maier

It seems that Montauk has survived yet another Memorial Day Weekend, otherwise known as the practice run for the Fourth of July, when the madness officially begins. Yours truly spent most of the weekend hiding in my vegetable garden. However, a few liquid lunch trips to the local watering hole brought in reports from town, which is to be avoided at all costs on such holiday weekends. Apparently, there are still people who believe it possible to hail a cab to the lighthouse from Main Street, and wearing a bicycle helmet while battling the crowds at the IGA is the vogue thing to do. And orange is in. People are dressing up like traffic cones with funny little hats. It’s true. In an effort to make our guests feel less conspicuous, I strapped a rarely used stand up paddle board to my car for my infrequent trips to town, which was indeed crawling with outsiders. Pretty much anyplace serving or selling alcohol reported banner sales, and new eateries that have not opened yet are officially late to the race. Montauk Harbor’s Swallow East, originally slated to open for the holiday, has pushed back to a June 10 opening. I doubt that Michael Walrath, the seriously loaded technology entrepreneur who also


recently bought out his investment partners at The Surf Lodge, will suffer tremendously from the loss. Since the excavation project at the nearby Salivar’s is still underway, it was probably a wise choice not to kick off the season with a septic sinkhole tragedy. Nonetheless, Lenny’s on the Dock’s “fabulous waterfront dining” signage has been replaced, and progress marches on.


n my avoidance of town I managed to miss the opening at La Bodega – formerly The Plaza Diner – where Julia Prince and her femme fatale business partners are offering a Latin American inspired menu late into the evening. This is good news, considering my semi-frequent cravings for empanadas at midnight, and I’m looking forward to checking them out. Also new to the scene is the nearby Bliss Kitchen, where chef owner Jennifer Meadows has taken on the ambitious task of running a full scale takeout operation in town while keeping up her original restaurant, Fishbar on the Lake. As if locally owned fresh seafood weren’t enough, The Coast, another new player on the dining scene open for nearly a month, has already made The New York Post.


orking furiously to meet the Memorial Day deadline, the crew at The Sloppy Tuna kicked off the weekend with an abrupt transition from sawdust to sales. With multiple visits from the Fire Marshal and at least one reported shutdown, the waterfront nightclub is sure to be the star of the

show this summer. The Marshal’s office kept busy in Montauk with visits to The Point, the Memory Motel, The Surf Lodge and Ruschmeyers, and a few were asked to close their doors until over occupancy issues could be addressed.


he lovely little restaurant with views of the train station last known as the Old Harbor House has been leased to a group who have chosen “The Washout” as a moniker. Urban Dictionary lists the term “washout” as “a failure or disappointment.” Hmm. Perhaps the idea is a homage to The Sloppy Tuna, whose Urban Dictionary definitions are too scandalous to print. Regardless, a new coat of paint makes the place easy enough on the eye. Further, Carl Darenberg checked in at The Washout several times this weekend, so it must be a cool enough spot. For those of you who don’t know him, Darenberg, Montauk Marine Basin proprietor extraordinaire, is the living social pulse of Montauk. He has thousands of Facebook friends, hundreds of lovers and bears a striking resemblance to “the most interesting man in the world,” even when not drinking Dos Equis.


ver the weekend, the svelte Mr. Darenberg photographed his activities in at least seven bars and restaurants, all of which appeared to host some form of live music. This is the most truly fabulous thing ever – music saves your mortal soul, after all – so let’s keep it going, Montauk. A fine start to a fine season. Cheers.

Only 82 days until Rufus Wainwright’s August 23 wedding to Jorn Weisbrodt. Will it be “august”? Manucci’s regular Dick Cavett has not yet been in for the salmon.

Recycle Your Fishing Gear Here East Hampton has been chosen to participate in the “Fishing for Energy” Program, a partnership between the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Covanta Energy Corporation and Schnitzer Steel Industries. Also part of the partnership is Gershow Recycling, whose mission is “Conserving the Future by Recycling the Past.” They are offering their services to this important program at no cost. Gershow has delivered a dumpster to the Montauk Transfer Station. People can bring their unwanted fishing gear and place it in the dumpster. When full, Gershow will remove the dumpster, reclaim and recycle the metals, and haul the waste to a Covanta waste-to-energy facility where it will be turned into energy. And then the process repeats. All this at no cost to the Town or participants. People who bring their fishing gear to the Montauk Transfer Station will not be charged an entrance or tipping fee. Gear that can be placed in the dumpster includes: nets (nylon, polypropylene and monofilament), fishing gear rigging (trawl dragger cookies, cans, rollers and chains), traps and pots (wood or vinyl coated wire) and line (nylon, polypropylene). Please note that if anyone places any household trash or other debris in the dedicated dumpster, the program will end, and we will lose this valuable opportunity. Watch for details on an event to be held at the Montauk Transfer Station on World Oceans Day, June 8.

Great Time, Great NoFo


ut on the East End there are two forks, North and South. Different but equally exciting. The North Fork is known to be more mellow than the South, which is more fast paced. The North offers an alternative to the glitz and glam and chaos that is the Hamptons, NoFo helps you unplug and relax. Go for a wine tasting or tour, a concert or a festival, or just go out for a dinner. With 35 vineyards and countless restaurants, there are endless possibilities… The North Fork encompasses 11 towns wedged between the Long Island Sound and the Peconic Bay. The It is a destination for all seasons of the year. Boating, sunbathing on the beach, hiking and visiting the state parks are favorite past times of the summer. The fall includes apple picking and harvesting pumpkin and corns. Winter is a perfect time to take a relaxing weekend and cozy up to a bottle of wine. Spring blooms with beautiful flowers, and fresh produce. This summer the North Fork has many fun and exciting activities lined up. Day and night you’ll be out and about and entertained. Here are just a few examples: Rise and shine with paddle boarding on June 3 or June 24. The New Suffolk Waterfront will be hosting this event from 9:30 to 11a.m. Beside the fact that paddle boarding is a great workout, it offers a tour through bays and waterways like no other. Whether you’ve never paddle boarded a day in your life or you’re a professional, you will have the time of

your life. Paddle Diva will be providing the boards and the lessons before hand so the only thing you’re responsible for is having fun. Bedell Cellars in Cutchogue will be hosting a wine tasting with winemaker, Rich OlsenHarbich on June 3 at 1 p.m. $50 per person will get you an unforgettable experience with a sparkling wine Q & A in the vineyard, a cellar tour, and cheese and antipasti to Johnny Winter accompany their decadent wine. On June 9 the Shelter Island Yacht Club will be hosting a cocktail party and auction benefiting East End Hospice. The hospice provides individualized care for terminally ill patients at their home or a short-term hospital stay.

“The Big Show” at Silas Marder: Less is More commissioned to create three 8”x10” paintings for the exhibit. The positioning of the small works is similarly intriguing, the entire endeavor resembling an installation rather than individual pieces.

By marion wolberg weiss


Gary Mamay

No matter what exhibit is on view at Bridgehampton’s Silas Marder Gallery, half the attraction is the ambience. Not only is the venue located in a barn-styled structure, but the outside continues the theme with bales of hay scattered among the chairs. Separate movie screenings are held there as well, which makes the whole environment a real pleasure to experience. The surrounding trees and shrubs from the Marder nursery also contribute to this unique place.

onsidered from another point-of-view, the small format evokes issues of technique. For instance, some artists must work with smaller brushes if they are used to producing larger canvases. Then there’s the idea of changing focus from large to small planes; this alteration may effect the application of paint. There’s also the matter of subject matter, some artists employing their bigger pieces as a point-ofdeparture when adjusting to smaller imagery. For example, cats are reproduced in works by Cornelia Foss, animals seen in her larger garden paintings through the years. Ditto for Alex Russo’s abstractions reminiscent of his bigger waterfalls and winter forests. Both Foss and Russo draw on their personal and long-standing love of nature, transferring this passion to works no matter what their size. Rex Lau also recreates geometric detail from his larger works featuring Middle Eastern designs.

The show’s format also calls attention to aesthetics. Consider this analogy: large canvases are like a novel, while smaller ones are poems. This means that an artist must abbreviate his or her message when creating a smaller poetic piece. It’s almost as if the creator must “zoom in” on a detail that tells the entire story. Janet Culbertson does just this with her political statement about the environment. A lizard and skeleton head against a black background give emphasis to a rose which is also black; thus pollution will destroy nature’s beauty. However, several paintings convey imagery that seem appropriate for a small canvas without any references to the artist’s previous works. Consider the female portrait by Lynn Matsouka (“Learning to Love”) where context is missing (no background). Yet this fact gives the portrait its inherent mystery. Sally Breen’s “Purple Morning” emphasizes a similar kind of mystery with her skyscape, the sky and water appearing to expand beyond the picture plane. Narrative paintings are present in the show as well, all of which contain a story complete within the canvas itself. Both “Couple” by Francesca Fuchs and “Area Rug” by Charles Ly are two such effective examples.

Two Great Summer Reads By joan baum

Southampton’s Chris Knopf leads a double life as a successful murder mystery writer, alternating between San Aquillo books and a spinoff series that stars Jackie Swiatkowski, Sam’s friend. Jackie’s a lovable, smart-ass, self-deprecating lawyer who started out in real estate but can’t seem to avoid crime cases because accused criminals keep coming her way ever since she took over the East End branch of a powerful lawyer’s pro bono law firm and inherited “the poor, disenfranchised, and occasionally innocent.” Ice Cap, the third in Knopf’s Jackie series, begins with a blizzard. (remember 2010?). Jackie’s in her Wainscott apartment when she gets a call from a guy recently out of jail who knows he’s going to be charged with murder. Fans who know that Knopf always does terrific nature description in all his books will not be disappointed here, especially with the novel’s climactic standoff of dueling snow plows. The series cross reference each other although Sam (Jackie’s “go-to guy”) appears more in her books than she does in his – a bit of a stretch since Jackie’s got smart and Big (very big) Harry in her life (“I specialize in exaggerated men”) who adores her, along with some tech-savvy and police buddies, all of whom pitch in to help her find out why millionaire businessman

and oddball Tad Buczek turned up in the snowstorm on his own property, dead. Jackie has winning ways that attract allies easily, but as a protagonist often in danger, she’s no match for Sam whose greater complexity makes him a more nuanced and compelling detective. At times overly attentive to secondary characters and a bit convoluted in unraveling the illegal business machinations at the center of Tad’s murder, Ice Cap nonetheless invites an unusual look at the PolishAmerican community on The East End. Knopf knows his way around the Hamptons and has a good feel for locals who make up its various and diverse communities. As always, in his novels, it’s fun to recognize places (slightly transformed) that become scenes of rendezvous and mayhem, though for sure in Ice Cap snow rules. * * * In All My Georgias (Driftwood Press), Springs resident Redjeb Jordania, revisits his past and celebrates a still vibrant present as he moves beyond his 90th year. Indeed, he is a familiar sight biking to the Springs General Store, sans helmet but with a signature beret, where he may sit for a while, having coffee, reading the paper. The multilingual and multitalented Jordania, a former professor of literature, is also a classical music composer whose works for chamber groups have been performed in numerous venues in the Hamptons. Some years ago he was the mainstay of Southampton College’s Seamester course. It’s amazing that he’s been able to reassemble and update stories about his extraordinary, transcontinental life -- his childhood and adolescence

in Paris, where his family was part of the émigré Georgian community of Leuville; his coming to the states and, in 1990, his returning to the land of his forebears, Triblisi, Georgia (his mother was pregnant with him when the family fled for their lives to France). His father, Noé Jordania (d. 1953), was the first democratically elected president of the Republic of Georgia and one of Stalin’s “greatest personal enemies.” All My Georgias is well titled, as Jordania’s recollections, diverse and various, roll out with humor and ease but also passion. The times in Paris were particularly heady, but the heart of the collection is all the different Georgias he discovered when he went to see his father’s old village, totally erased by the Soviets. He is both saddened and amused at what he finds. The inauthentic nostalgia works: Jordania breathes the fragrances of the country that’s in his blood, rubs shoulders with its people, meets cousins, relatives, scholars, students, and finds himself “unexpectedly confront(ing) some of my childhood’s inner demons that I did not know still lurked in my conscience.” He is also feted and invited to perform – a huge success. A reflective postscript suggests why he has once again published: it is to honor his father and his father’s “selfless” compatriots, still not properly acknowledged by successive Georgian governments – though warmly embraced by the people.

So many new places to shop and be seen!

Hot Yoga Makes Summertime Even Hotter


ot Yoga makes one of today’s hottest fitness trends even hotter. Bikram (hot yoga) enthusiasts assume 26 poses in temperatures of 105 degrees. It is believed the heat loosens muscles and promotes detoxification. One of many distinct yoga forms developed to accommodate new philosophies regarding health and wellness, the main tenant of meditation combined with mental and physical exercise make each class a unique escape. Avoid stiff, sleepy muscles spending sedentary hours on a plane when the heat and humidity of an exotic island is around the corner. Cleanse the mind and pores while enhancing emotional and physical flexibility at Hamptons Hot Yoga (Bridgehampton). The center, open daily, offers 90-minute Bikram (static) and 75-minute Power Vinyasa (flowing) sessions. Lienette Crafoord, a certified instructor of 10 years, owns the studio. She encourages newcomers to have an “Open mind, empty belly and good hydration.” I was nervous taking my first-ever hot yoga class. Waiting on the line that This is how it’s done in the Hot Hamptons! formed half an hour before the scheduled class time, I felt the stress rise as I looked upon the heterogeneous group of regulars equipped earlier in the day. After settling in the back and with all sorts of yoga apparel.

wavered as the sweat raining off my forehead blinded my left eye briefly. If not for my mantra “Shower, shower, shower….” I doubt I would have lasted. Seeing my tenacity to fulfill each move in accordance with the crowd – pushing limits and comfort zones – the instructor commented I must be a dancer. I was pleased my years of professional ballet finally proved useful as an adult. So maybe I have a slight advantage over the average beginner. Still, the class is paced so that most anyone healthy enough and willing to brave this physical challenge will find success. Crafoord explains the advantages of hot yoga “Start with the sweat, a powerful detoxifier. The heat makes muscles more pliable, allows us to go deeper into postures, which means deeper compression of our internal organs which is where healing happens.” Before starting, it is a good idea to consult a medical professional. Also worth noting, hydration is about more than just water. Perspiration contains salts (electrolytes) necessary for muscle contraction, heart conduction and specialized channels regulating material transport into and out of cells. Eating a nutritious meal a few hours before and after a class helps replenish lost salts. Though discomfort is common, important symptoms to recognize include lightheadedness, headache, rapid heartbeat, nausea, breathing difficulty and excessive pain. With health benefits like easing muscle tension, stress and improving mental clarity, strength and agility, yoga transforms the body into its own active spa. Originating in the eastern traditions of Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism, this ancient phenomenon, based on the mind-body-spirit trinity blends philosophy with fitness in the modern day. Just in time for bikini season, hot yoga makes summertime even steamier. Hamptons Hot Yoga

A Few of My Faves in Bloom I would like to tell you about some of my favorite plants in bloom now in my garden and one in another place. For example, this week I saw two Chinese fringe trees in a large shrub border at a client’s house. These trees are not very showy most of the year (hence their use in a tree and shrub border) but when they bloom they are otherworldly. They have hanging clusters of thin but long-petalled flowers that do, indeed, make the tree look “fringed.” It is one of those plants that blooms for such a relatively short time that one feels the need to just stand and gaze in amazement to soak it in. There is also an old and large phlomis called Jerusalem sage in my garden. It is a woody plant and because of its age, it sprawls into the corners of its bed. It has olive grey, hairy leaves and whorled yellow flowers on elongated stems. A couple years ago I became concerned that it was becoming too “leggy,” so I pruned it back, taking special care because I did not know how this woody plant would respond. The older branches had reclined, but there

season and you will have these wonderful flowers spring and regrows bigger each year. Mrs. Corning has a friend across the garden in throughout the garden and yard - you just have to another wire tubular structure. The clematis Mrs. resist the temptation to smother them! A number of years ago, I planted just a couple Robert Bryden, also a non-vining type, lives there of digitalis mertonensis also called strawberry and later in the summer will produce panicles of blue foxglove. I do not see this variety often these days flowers. Cut it to the ground and it will return. The Abraham Darby (the showier digitalis rose is beginning to “Camelot” typesare are bloom. The son of more popular) but the My favorite poppy and one of my Heritage and Graham mertonensis is available Thomas, each a beauty, on the Internet. It is favorite plants ever is the papaver is a classic David Austin supposed to like fertile, atlanticum, or “Flore Pleno.” form and soft apricot. I moist soil but in my am not very good to my sandy, thirsty dirt it has self-seeded all over the garden. There are stalks of roses - I rarely spray and fertilize - but these guys mauve dangling flowers and they are blooming with are tough. I am rewarded with flowers from three of self-sown lavender colored linaria, a very nice sight my favorite roses. Given the meager amount of attention my garden for one who does little in her garden. Mrs. Betty Corning, a non-vining clematis, is gets, (the shoe maker’s children syndrome) these growing in a tubular wire structure and, though she plants that continue to thrive and often produce does not vine, she can crawl therein. Soon there will more of themselves are a thrill. For gardening discussion call Jeanelle Myers at 631be a shower of blue bell-shaped flowers springing from the tube.

Oriental poppy

was a new plant forming on the inside. Across the way from the phlomis, there is a riot of orange oriental poppies. The riot has formed over the years as I have let the seeds grow freely. I love this blaze of orange, delicately textured flowers. Despite their feiry appearance, they are actually very polite plants in the garden. They grow through and beside a sprawling rose bush that is not yet in bloom like a protective force. It is too bad that I only have a month to enjoy them before they disappear. My favorite poppy and one of my favorite plants ever is the papaver atlanticum, or “Flore Pleno.” It is a low, olive-green leaved plant with long stems that are topped with danty orange flowers. It has begun to bloom and if I deadhead, it will continue to bloom all summer. Leave a few seed heads at the end of the

Bravo’s “Real Housewives of NYC” fans are gearing up for the highly anticipated Season 5 premiere this Monday but, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps admitted the premiere of the new season without her old cast mates, Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Simon van Kempen and Kelly Bensimon will be bittersweet, “It’s really sad because it was like a family and we had many seasons together so it’s sad not to be working with the girls.” Jill, Alex, Simon and Kelly weren’t asked back to star in Season 5. LuAnn, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan are the surviving original cast mates. During a recent IN THE MIXX interview with the Countess she credits Zarin for being chosen as a cast member on Bravo’s hit series, “I ran into Jill Zarin at a party out here in the Hamptons, it was the screening of Michael Moore’s movie Sicko. Jill invited me to a party and we kept seeing each other. I’d never seen her before in my life. This redhead calls me and says ‘Hi, I’m Jill Zarin’ and I was like who is this woman? I was impressed by her, um, energy and her accent and you know we became friends and then she told me about the show that she was thinking about doing which was called ‘Manhattan Moms’ at the time. At that moment there was only the ‘Housewives of Orange County’ so eventually it would turn into the ‘Housewives of NYC.’ So, that’s how it happened.” Lu-Ann admitted, “Jill was really the den mother and so it was really sad to see Countess LuAnn de Lesseps her go and I absolutely I miss her a lot.” It’s not like Zarin and the rest of the post massacre crew are desperate housewives. Zarin has a woman’s shapewear collection, Skweez Couture. Alex and Simon created an Egyptian-cotton towels and bedding collection, called Aluxe and Kelly recently wrote a book, I Can Make You Hot: The Supermodel Diet. Lu-Ann also added she recently had Jill and Bobby over to her Hamptons estate, “I still see them so that’s the nice thing. Yet, the Countess is known for keeping a polite stance and shared, “It is exciting that we have three new housewives!” Aviva Drescher, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson replaced the original crew and are starring in the upcoming season. LuAnn said Season 5 is the most dramatic yet, “Fasten your seatbelts for Season 5 because it will feel different!” Why? “There’s different personalities and alliances being made. It is an exciting season! We travel a lot and we go to some pretty cool locations.” Season 5 showcases the new reality ensemble in London and St Bart’s. For more of LuAnn’s exclusive interview DVR the premiere episode of IN THE MIXX studio series at East Hampton Studio on WVVH-TV at 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 2.

Mesclun Salad with Vinaigrette

So many restaurants, so many ways to dine...

Restaurant Review: Boa Thai By dan koontz


oa Thai in North Sea is busy creating a tropical zone in the Hamptons. On a recent evening, my dining partner and I were met with warm greetings and cold, tropical drinks. With perhaps a knowing nod to the old Trader Vic’s style of “Polynesian” libations, bartender Patrick has invented a signature “Boa Thai Mai Tai” – a fizzy mix of rum and lychee juice shaken and poured over ice, garnished with a lychee speared with a tiny orange pirate’s sword. The drink is further decked out with a festive red swizzle stick and an umbrella, making it the most elaborate cocktail I’ve had since that trip to Fantasy Island. It was very refreshing. My dining partner had the more sedate Lychee Martini, vodka and lychee liqueur shaken and served up with a lychee garnish. Also very nice. The regular cocktail list includes a standard Mai Tai, Sex on the Beach, and that old standby, the Kamikaze. No Suffering Bastard, though. Customers are welcome to dine at the bar, but they might miss out on the efficient and graceful service provided by Boa Thai’s table staff. In due time the playful drinks and the festive bar spectacle gave way to some serious food, notable for its contrasts: sweet vs. salty, crispy vs. tender, warm vs. chilled. The Roti appetizer was a delicious fried pancake, crispy on the surface but tender below, cut into sections and doused with a sweet sauce but served with a salty curry dip. The Roast Duck Salad served up warm, tender slices of moist duck

My dining partner side and a container of sticky rice. If all of this sounds like a lot of meat, never fear. Boa Thai has a wide saw to it that not a drop was wasted. In between courses, I ordered a glass of the Matua variety of vegetarian options to tempt you. Dessert saw the thrilling reappearance of the Sauvignon Blanc, from New Zealand.

Salad, Vinaigrette, Peas...Yum! a variety of edible peas, is literally here today and gone tomorrow. The vegetable needs warmth but not heat and so its tiny time frame is late spring to early summer. Combine them with different varieties â&#x20AC;&#x201C; less shelling to do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and create an assemblage with sugar snaps and snow peas. With infectious diseases and environmental health issues on the rise it has never been more important to eat locally.

SMOTHERED BROCCOLI RABé Broccoli rabé ‘affogata’ meaning drowned, is an old Italian method for cooking greens. When cooking a large bunch of broccoli rabé for two, as I do, splash the leftovers with good red wine vinegar over bread slices for a tasty snack! Yield: 4 servings

1 1/2 pounds broccoli rabé 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 4 large garlic cloves, crushed 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste 1. Discard heavy stems of the broccoli rabé and coarsely chop the greens. Rinse then soak in cold water. 2. Meanwhile heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet or heavy saucepan with a lid over medium heat. Add the garlic and pepper flakes and sauté over mediumlow heat about 2 minutes until garlic is golden. Drain the broccoli rabé and add the vegetable to the garlic and pepper flakes with 2 to 3 tablespoons water. With lid ajar, cook over low heat for 15 to 18 minutes, or until vegetable is tender to the bite. Taste for seasoning and serve. Variation: Substitute spinach for the broccoli rabé and add 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg. Recipe adapted from my dear friend, Linda Romanelli Leahy’s 366 Ways to Cook Healthful Greens, A Plume Book.

LUCAS CARTON great champagne from the house of demoiselle Champagne from Alain Senderensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; famed Paris Restaurant Senderens!

In 2005, the famed Lucas Carton restaurant reopened its doors after its 3-star Michelin chef, Alain Senderens, declared to the world that he was giving up his Michelin stars, so that he could focus on preparing great food and serving great wine that would be affordable to the general public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like having funâ&#x20AC;?, he had declared to the New York Times. It has been renamed Senderens. Alain Senderens explains how this delicious Champagne came to be: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 1993, when I met my good friend Paul-Francois Vranken, I asked him to create a special cuvee of Champagne that I would be proud to serve to my guests. After a great amount of research, the magical M. Vranken created this Special Reserve Champagne Demoiselle for my restaurant.â&#x20AC;?


A very dry Champagne that imparts a buttery flavor to the palate and was created to be consumed with the cuisine of Lucas Carton. (1140)

LUCAS CARTON ROSĂ&#x2030; Bottle $3695 Case $44340

It is an exquisite rose Champagne that overflows with toasty aromas, ripe raspberry fruit and a crisp, delightful finish. (0056)




A tradition at Sherry-Lehmann since the 1940s! Boyer Brut has graced the tables of weddings, receptions, birthdays, and graduations. It is a distinguished dry sparkling wine of high merit. From some of the better vineyards of France, it is ideal for those who want a sparkling wine that is dry and pleasing to the pocketbook as well as the palate. (0081)

We are thrilled that Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famed Corney & Barrow has been kind enough to share with Sherry-Lehmann this special Peche Cuvee. You will be delighted by its delicate balance and semi-dry, fresh, fragrant peach flavors. The perfect aperitif for your summertime festivities. (4026)
