He’s in a scene where an agent dies and Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith are standing with a dozen earthlings and aliens at headquarters quietly mourning his passing. Winchell stands just behind and to the right of Tommy Lee Jones. He’s an alien known as Jellyfish Guy and wears 6. this giant white translucent head with two enormous eyes that stick out the sides of his head like old fashioned car headlights.

Alec Baldwin and fiancée Hilaria Thomas are tying the knot at the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral on the weekend of June 30, according to The New York Post. The church, which was used in both The Godfather and Gangs of New York, was built in 1810 and given basilica status by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010. But it isn’t all roses for the couple. Leaving New York’s Marriage Bureau on Tuesday, Baldwin “attacked” a Daily Hilaria Thomas News photographer trying to take the couple’s picture. He later tweeted “A ‘photographer’ almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning. #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded.” This will be Baldwin’s second marriage. In 1993 he was engaged to Kim Basinger in a ceremony on a beach in East Hampton. Baldwin and Thomas moved in together last August and became engaged on the East End in April. Joy Behar will host a new primetime show for Current TV beginning in September. “The View” co-host, whose HLN series “The Joy Behar Show” was canceled last year, will appear Monday through Thursday nights at 6 p.m. The new show, which also has “The Joy Behar Show” as its working title, will repeat later in the evening.
Billy Joel, in a biker jacket, and his girlfriend Alexis Roderick enjoyed lunch at Andrra in East Hampton on Sunday. Former New York Governor David Paterson had lunch with 10 people at 75 Main in Southampton. While attending the national cartoonist society event in Las Vegas, Archie Comics cartoonist Stan Goldberg was awarded The Gold Key, their hall of fame award. You can congratulate him when you see him at East Hampton Library’s Authors Night in August or at the Box Art Auction for East End Hospice in September. Happy 25th, Nicole Miller! No it was not her birthday but the 25th anniversary of her eponymous business. Nicole celebrated with friends and longtime staffers at a dance party at the still smoking—like Nicole— Indochine this week.

DUBOEUFâ€™S 1ST PRIZE WINNERS â€œConsistent in style and amazingly low in price, the myriad Beaujolais bottlings of Georges Duboeuf continue to represent outstanding values in the American marketplace.â€? â€“Robert Parkerâ€™s Wine Advocate DUBOEUF MORGON 2009
DUBOEUF BEAUJOLAIS-VILLAGES 2010
Bottle $995 Case
Bottle $1195 Case $14340
The â€˜terroirâ€™ in Morgon comes from a vineyard full of crumbling stone and schist. With its deep garnet hue and its bouquet of ripe cherries, peaches, apricots and plums, it is a wine which is fruit-luscious when young and more filled with dark cherries and plums after 2 years. (A4716)
39 villages produce wine classified as Beaujolais Villages. Georgess and Franck Duboeufâ€™s attractive, cherry-scented wine with its nose of strawberries and blackcurrants shows smoothness and balance. 2009 is a spectacular vintage in the Beaujolais. (B1546)
DUBOEUF REGNIE 2009
Bottle $1049 Case $12588
The Cru Regnie is considered to be the most like a Beaujolais Villages with these important differences: more fruit on the nose, more zesty and mouth-filling with a longer finish. A ten minute chill beforehand with a good piece of cheese...delish! (A4713)
DUBOEUF COTE-DE-BROUILLY 2010
Bottle $1195 Case $14340
It is a fine wine, violet-coloured with a bouquet redolent of irises and fresh grapes. (B2638)
DUBOEUF SAINT AMOUR 2009
Bottle $1349 Case $16188
DUBOEUF CHENAS 2009
A lively, refined and well-balanced wine, ruby colored with a bouquet of cherries and spices. Very ripe and ready to drink. Serve slightly chilled with roasted or BBQ chicken. (A4715)
Ruby colored with hints of garnet, well structured with a floral, woody bouquet. Quite deep and rich compared to its lighter cousins, Chenas is a great match with roast beef or chicken not to mention BBQ ribs. (A4718)
DUBOEUF BEAUJOLAIS BLANC 2010
DUBOEUF CHIROUBLES 2009
Bottle $1249 Case $14988
Here the rich gamay fruit is more vibrant and we find a little spiciness on the nose. The granite soil imparts some minerality. Brimming with fruit and flowers, it is one of the most individual wines of Beaujolais. (A4717)
DUBOEUF MOULIN-A-VENT 2009
Bottle $1395 Case $16740
Considered to be the sovereign among all the wines of Beaujolais, this outstanding Cru boasts vivid aromas of violets and roses. Full-bodied and richly flavored, Duboeufâ€™s Moulin-a-Vent will continue to develop beautifully for many years. (A5635)
DUBOEUF JULIENAS 2010
Bottle $1295 Case $15540
The clay soil of Julienas is favorable for the production of rich, powerful and robust wines of ruby red color, a peach and raspberry flavor and a peony aroma. (B2637)
SUMMER SAMPLER ON SALE! $13995
Consists of 9 bottles of the delicious reds and 3 bottles of the crisp Maconnais Chardonnays listed here. (6609)
With summer in full swing, you will find these red and white wines from Georgess Duboeuf fit in perfectly with the foods and casual entertainment of the season.
Bottle $1195 Case $14340
Beaujolais Blanc is produced both in the Beaujolais and Maconnais wine-areas. Fish and sea-food lovers are particularly fond of this dry white wine with aromas of flowers and honey. It is a soft and delicious wine and long on the palate. (B1544)
DUBOEUF MACON VILLAGES 2010
Bottle $1195 Case $14340
From Macon to Tournus, the Chardonnay grape reigns supreme on the chalky soil. About 40 communes claim the appellation Macon Villages. Attractive golden yellow color, with lemon, spice and flower aromas, the fruit is typical of the Chardonnay grape. (B1543)
DUBOEUF ST.-VERAN 2010
Bottle $1395 Case $16740
The wines of St. Veran have the richness of Pouilly-Fuisse with similar minerality and citrus notes, they represent very good value. Bright, fresh and very accommodating, it defines the door-opening charms of accessible White Burgundies. (B1545)

â€œAlong with the New York Subway System, Hamptons Subway is the only underground transit system in the State of New York.â€?
The H amptons Subway Newsletter on-time rate 100%, Three Mile Harbor on-time rate 100%, Montauk downtown on-time rate 100%, Montauk Lighthouse on-time rate 100%. Overall, the on-time rate for all stations is 100%. We believe this is tops in the country for 2012.

Week of June 22-29, 2012 Riders this week: 16,412 Rider miles this week: 171,812 DOWN IN THE TUBE Mitt Romney made his first appearance on Hampton Subway, walking the aisles of all the cars on the eastbound train out of Westhampton Beach around noon on Tuesday and waving to everybody until he got to Montauk, where he flew away in his private plane. SUBWAY ON-TIME 100% After Mayor Bloomberg issued a report last month that the subway system there is on-time 87% of the time, and he is pleased about this, we ran our own on-time survey. The results are as follows: Hampton Bays on-time rate 100%, East Quogue on-time rate 100%, Quogue on-time rate 100%, Westhampton Beach on-time rate 100%, Remsenberg on-time rate 100%, Shinnecock on-time rate 100%, Southampton on-time rate 100%, Water Mill on-time rate 100%, Bridgehampton on-time rate 100%, Sag Harbor on-time rate 100%, East Hampton on-time rate 100%, Amagansett on-time rate 100%, Springs
FORGED SUBWAY SWIPE CARDS Be on the lookout for the latest in forged subway â€œswipeâ€? cards. The cards are very easy to identify. They read HAMTON SUBWAY rather than HAMPTON SUBWAY and they do not work in the turnstiles. If you are given or purchase such a swipe card and are therefore in possession of it, take it immediately to any employee of Hampton Subway. There is a mandatory jail sentence of four years for possession of a forged subway swipe card. HAPPY BIRTHDAY The Goldberg triplets are 29 years old on Saturday. All three work at Hamton Subway. Jose Goldberg works in the bookkeeping department at our headquarters building in Hanpton Bays, brother Vladimir is a flagman between East Hambton and Amagansett and brother Throckmorton is a subway police lieutenant assigned to the anti-hop-the-turnstiles unit. Sometimes, just for fun, the three of them
swap jobs with one another and thatâ€™s always fun. Itâ€™s impossible to tell them apart. But it all seems to work out. There will be a little party for Throckmorton, Vladimir and Jose in the company cafeteria on Monday at 5 p.m. just after everybody gets off work. Non-alcoholic red wine will be served. Please be prepared to donate triple the usual amount at that time. DANâ€™S PAPERS OUR GUESTS Last Saturday was Danâ€™s Papers day at the Hampton Subway office in Hampton Bays. The staff of Hampton Subway invited Danâ€™s Papers staff members to a lunch in the subway cafeteria at noon. The reason for the party was to celebrate the fact that for three years, the Danâ€™s Papers has re-printed the Hampton Subway newsletter every week in its pages, giving our newsletter, which is normally only distributed inside our building, a much wider audience. A particular thank you went to CEO and Publisher Bob Edelman who was given a â€œloving cupâ€? by Commissioner Aspinall just before dessert. COMMISSIONER ASPINALLâ€™S REPORT There was a report that the subway trains, which maintain a steady speed of 36 miles an hour, were slowing down on Thursday, in the morning to 32 miles an hour and then down to 29 miles an hour in the afternoon. When I had somebody look into this, I found that Thursdayâ€™s gift promotion courtesy of the Long Island Potato and Broccoli Commission, where 50-pound burlap sacks of potatoes were given out to every rider who came through the turnstiles, had gone awry. Many of the riders, ungrateful at receiving this gift, left the sacks in the subway cars when they got to their destinations. If we catch any of the riders who did this, we will arrest them on charges of littering.

Five Arrested Five people were arrested in relation to the brawl that broke out in Montauk last week. The brawl involved about 10 people, but only five were arrested, so in a way, those were the losers of the fight, even though many that were arrested were considered the winners.Â
Stolen A sailboat was stolen in East Hampton. The boat is aÂ 14-foot red Sunfish sailboat with a white stripe and an old New Jersey registration on the starboard side. The boat was docked on a bay beach. Weâ€™ve got a feeling that the owners of this boat never really used this sunfish all that much.Â
Stolen Bicycles Two men simultaneously stole two bicycles from a nightclub in Montauk and took off down the street in opposite directions. The manhunt is on!

Old Man McGumbus, 108-years-old and former World War II atomic bomb flight transporter, was interviewed last week by a national media outlet about his involvement with aÂ B-47 bomber that dropped a 7,000-pound nuclear bomb into the waters off Tybee Island, Ga., after it collided with another Air Force jet back in 1958. McGumbus, who was involved in the accident, was the pilot who accidentally headed his plane directly into the B-47. Things didnâ€™t go well during the interview, and McGumbus became agitated when the reporter asked him why he just didnâ€™t fly out of the way of the B-47. â€œHOW ABOUT YOU FLY OUT OF THE WAY OF THIS YOU GOD DAMN HIPPIE!â€? To which McGumbus pulled out from his pocket a 357 Magnum Revolver and pulled the trigger, but the gun misfired, so he threw it at the reporter. â€œIF IT WASNâ€™T FOR MY GOD DAMN SERVICE YOUâ€™D BE SPEAKING GERMAN YOU GOD DAMN HIPPIE! GO WIN A WAR AND THEN TALK TO ME!â€? McGumbus shouted. The reporter escaped and McGumbus was quickly jailed. His 357 Magnum, which he does not have a permit for, was confiscated but later returned. The reporter has not pressed any charges from the incident and has since quit and joined the army.Â

Slow Down The Hamptons is Roaring Ahead & We Need to Put on the Brakes By Dan Rattiner
here are two places on the planet that are racing ahead economically and need to be slowed down before they become overheated and crash. One place is China. The other is the Hamptons. China has already begun tightening up money to slow things down. The Hamptons is a little slower off the mark. Unlike China, they experienced a big drop in the economy in 2008. Now, four years later, things are beginning to surge. The first people to notice the tremors signaling this shift were the people with their ears to the ground this spring. It was apparent as early as April that traffic levels were picking up. Now, in June, there are tie-ups everywhere with some places backed up for miles again. The thundering herds are coming, is what those people said. And they have turned out to be right. One of the worst things about the Hamptons, these huge traffic jams, are back. And at least for now, everybody is in full applause mode. The second big thing is all the building going on. There is more construction on more major institutions at the same time in the Hamptons at than at any time in the last half century. They include not only new construction but expansions and restorations. They are everywhere.
re a t i C
They include the Parrish Art Museum and the Greek Orthodox Church in Southampton, the Rogers House and the Bull’s Head Inn in Bridgehampton, the Bulova Watch Company factory in Sag Harbor, the children’s wing of the East Hampton Library, the complete restoration of the historic John Jermain Library in Sag Harbor, the restoration of the Thomas Moran House in East Hampton and the building of a multi-million dollar office building at the northwest corner of Bridgehampton in the same 19th century revival style as the Rogers House and the Bull’s Head Inn just across the street from it, both also under restoration. The cost of each of these projects ranges from $5 million to $40 million. I am not including private residences. I am talking only of public institutions and office buildings. This is an extraordinary amount of work to be going on at one time here in the Hamptons. And all of it is either under construction or about to break ground. Many projects will result in the elimination of eyesores that have stood in this community for half a century or more. The activity level rivals that of Wuhan City in China’s Hubei Province. In Southampton, the Parrish Art Museum is building a $26.2 million new home right on the Montauk Highway east of that town. It is expected to be finished this autumn. It will house and have on

Overheated (Continued from previous page) display for the first time their unparalleled collection of valuable paintings that until now have had to be stored in climate controlled basement rooms. Almost no one in the last two generations has seen this collection. The work could not be displayed in the old Parrish Art Museum on Jobs Lane because it was too small to house it, and because there was neither climate control nor security on the main floor. Shortly you will see works by Jackson Pollock, Willem deKooning, Fairfield Porter, Roy Lichtenstein, Cindy Sherman, William Marritt Chase, Esteban Vincente and Lee Krasner that have been unavailable until now. The other large construction underway in Southampton is the enlargement of the Greek Orthodox Church on St. Andrews Road. The construction of its new and larger dome and church to accommodate their larger membership is visible to motorists and passersby on County Road 39. Perhaps the most dramatic construction of them all—with the possible exception of the new Parrish—is the virtually complete transformation of the very center of town of Bridgehampton surrounding the Founders Memorial there. For half a century or more, this crossroads has looked like a slum. On one corner was a falling-down beverage barn that had moved into a former gas station. On another corner was a giant mansion with columns out front that was in great disrepair and for a long time had a gas station on its front lawn, on another corner was
the nearly abandoned but historic Bull’s Head Inn, usually with an antique shop on the ground floor and with the upper floors not in use. Only the fourth corner, a group of two-story white stucco stores was being kept up. On the first corner, the beverage barn building has been torn down and the builders should break ground any day now on a three-story office building built in the newly-constructed Greek revival inspired style, with columned porticos and a clock tower. On the second corner, the Nathanial Rogers House is being entirely restored with its huge two and a half story columned porch out front and will soon be the new museum and home of the Bridgehampton Historical Society. And on the third corner, developer and former corporate executive Bill Campbell is fully restoring the original three-story Bull’s Head Inn and barn out back and when he is finished, it will be a luxury inn, complete with a restaurant, pool and spa to be called the Topping Rose House. In East Hampton last month, on Main Street, ground was broken on the new children’s wing of the East Hampton Library, a project of many millions of dollars that has been in the pre-construction phase for many years. And construction continues on Main Street further down the road on the reconstruction of one of the most beautiful mansions in town, the threestory high Victorian home of the celebrated turn of the century painter Thomas Moran, many of whose beautiful oil paintings of our
national parks are in the Smithsonian. There are two huge constructions going on in Sag Harbor. One involves building an addition to and doing a full restoration of the 1910 John Jermain Library, including the reconstruction of its magnificent glass and iron dome at a cost of about $10 million. The other project is, finally, the restoration of the largest building in Sag Harbor, the fourstory former Bulova Watchcase Factory. The factory, built in 1881, has been an abandoned eyesore in that town for nearly half a century. Now it will be condominiums with a magnificent view of the harbor and downtown. All of these projects are behind chain link fences and covered with canvas and scaffolding with workmen in hard hats all over the place. And eventually, the entire length of the Montauk Highway is expected to be repaved by the State (with the next project to be completed between Stephen Hands Path and 114). By that time, all these projects will be completed and so driving to one or another of them will be possible on a beautiful new road. One hopes that as these projects wind down, there are no new ones to come along for awhile. We also hope that the reputation this community has as the country’s premiere high class resort will settle down. Perhaps we ought to ban the making of new movies here for a couple of years. We, like the Chinese, need to pause and take a breath. Otherwise our economy may overheat and crash back down to where the rest of the country is today.

Re-enactors on the Coast Guard Station steps talking to the crowd.
The Coastguradsmen and the Nazi Saboteurs Meet Up in Amagansett By robert sforza
t 10 past midnight on June 13, 1942, 21-yearold Coast Guardsman John Cullen left the Amagansett Life-Saving Station and set out east along the quiet beach on his routine patrol, armed with nothing but his flashlight and his spirit. It was dark and foggy. Last week, the Amagansett Life Saving and Coast Guard Station Committee staged its first ever re-enactment of the fateful night when Cullen came across four Nazi saboteurs on the beaches of Amagansett.
The rendition marked the 70th anniversary of the event that night, and those organizing it hope to make it an annual event. The performance began at the old life-saving station as locals, community enthusiasts, and history buffs gathered at the foot of the station waiting for the much-anticipated production. The occasion was enhanced by the presence of William and Daniel Cullen, blood relatives of the late John Cullen, who died last year. Peter Garnham, Executive Director of the Amagansett Historical Association, commenced the performance with a brief, informative
narrative of the events leading up to and the actions that transpired on that foggy June night. The story begins on April 16, 1942, at a hideaway in the dense pine forests of East Prussia, Garnham narrated. Admiral Wilhelm Canaris (head of German military intelligence), and Colonel Erwin von Lahousen (head of Abwehr II, Sabotage) are waiting to meet with Adolf Hitler to get permission for a secret mission called Operation Pastorious. The objective: blow up aluminum plants in New York, hydroelectric plants in upstate New York, the Hell Gate (Continued on next page)

At the end of Hill’s criminal career, everyone privy to his predicament, himself included, would’ve wagered that nothing short of a miracle could’ve prevented his murder. Hill, a seventh-grade dropout mystified by the expensively garbed, swaggering gangsters that roamed his Brooklyn neighborhood, endeared himself to Lucchese Mafia Family Lieutenant Paul Vario. A comedic type with witty oneliners, Hill nurtured a father-son relationship with the powerful underworld chieftain, who

Before long, Hill undertook matters of greater importance, such as lucrative felonies— peddling untaxed cigarettes, truck hijackings, loansharking, and bookmaking. But though an incorrigible hoodlum, Hill, good-natured and generous to those in need, wasn’t prone to violence. Ten months ago, Hill and I were collaborating on the manuscript of our upcoming book, The Lufthansa Heist, and during his stay at my Amagansett residence, he reminisced, “I did my best keeping my (Continued on page 36)

1942 (Continued from previous page) After Garnhamâ€™s introduction the group moved to the beach where the encounter took place. Kent Miller, the chairman of the committee, was in character as John Cullen and East Hampton Town Councilman, Dominick Stanzione, played the role of the conniving GeorgeÂ Dasch, the lead saboteur who was a naturalized U.S. resident and once worked as a waiter in Southampton. Hugh King, another committee member, who is also an actor, read from a script he wrote for the occasion. In his quirky, animated, exciting manner he set the stage for Cullen and Daschâ€™s unforgettable encounter on the shores of Amagansett. Peter Garnham
Bridge, and Penn Station, as well as other locations in different states. Hitler approved these plans and on May 28, 1942, the submarine U-202 left a port in France headed for Long Island. On June 12, just before 9 p.m., Crowd on the beach U.S. Navy monitoring stations detected the submarine 28 miles south of Amagansett. However, no action was taken. The submarine became grounded on a sand bar and from there the saboteurs landed on the Amagansett beach in a rubber raft just before midnight, where they buried their supplies. Then their leader saw Cullen approaching in the darkness.

â€œWhat are those people doing over there? You are not supposed to be on the beach if you donâ€™t have a uniform on. Who are you?â€? exclaims Miller in his John Cullen persona. â€œCoastguard?â€? remarks Stanzione in Daschâ€™s voice. â€œWho are you!â€? shouts Miller again. â€œFisherman from East Hampton. On our way to Montauk. Boat ran ashore,â€? responds Daschâ€™s character. King continued, in his charismatic tone, to narrate the events that ensued on the beach that night 70 years ago. The re-enactment was educational, enlightening, informal and whimsically humorous in some moments, like when one of the saboteurs started speaking German, which turned into gibberish before he ended speaking. The performance had a light atmosphere, which added to the easiness and candor of this first experience and it will be distinctly remembered for years to come. This re-enactment had an improvised feel, as if at any given moment something exciting or witty could occur. The scene concluded after Dasch (Stanzione) bribed Cullen (Miller) with 300 bucks. Cullen took the money before yelling into the wind, â€œTheyâ€™re never going to believe this,â€? to the laughter and applause of all 130 spectators who made it onto the beach. â€œIt was real casual. I got a little nervous waiting on my cues from my fellow actors,â€? Miller admitted after the performance. Stanzione had similar views after the recital. â€œWe rehearsed and it went well. Some of the parts were hilarious, like to have been clamming that hour at night in the ocean or hearing one of us trying to speak in German.â€? â€œIt went fabulously, real informal but commemorative,â€? said Miller afterwards. â€œWe would love to make this an annual thing.â€? Isabel Carmichael, from The East Hampton Star, was in attendance last Wednesday and not just for work purposes. Carmichaelâ€™s father, Joel Carmichael, bought the old life-saving station from the government for a dollar in 1966 under the condition he move it to some property he bought up on Bluff Road, where he and the family lived for the next 40 years. If he had not purchased the old life-saving station, it would have been torn down. When Joel died in 2006, the family gave the building to East Hampton Town for nothing. In 2007 moved the Town moved it to its present location. â€œThat was an exciting day,â€? laughed Garnham, who was in attendance when the station was moved back to its current location. â€œWatching them move that house down that hill thereÂâ€” it doesnâ€™t look like much of a hill, but it was unforgettable watching it come down.â€? TheÂ Amagansett Life-Saving Station isnâ€™t just a local landmark but a symbol of Americanâ€™s defense system. It served as a watchtower that protected the United States from the only known Nazi invasion in our history. â€œWe want to preserve this building very badly,â€? Miller remarks. â€œWe wanted to raise awareness for it without burdening people with an old fundraiser.â€? The group is currently in the process of receiving its 501(c)(3) (Continued on page 58)

cohorts from killing one another and harming people that didn’t deserve it. I saved a lot of men from gettin’ whacked.” Hill paused and gazed blankly at the horizon. “It’s ironic. East Hampton was where the federal marshals first relocated me to hide from my enemies.” Nostalgically, he lulled in thought. “And 32 years later, I’m back in the Hamptons to tell you my story.” In 1978 Hill was the broker of the largest unrecovered cash robbery in history. It was his magnum opus, a $6 million haul that his associates plucked from the Lufthansa cargo terminal at Kennedy Airport, a spectacular crime that fascinated the media. However, fear that someone amongst the robbers might point the authorities to the lead pirate, Jimmy Burke, caused Burke to unleash a slaughter, murdering 13 of his co-conspirators. Hill had been spared. But months following the Lufthansa ambush, a devastating event crumbled his high life, an arrest for distribution of narcotics that carried 30 years of imprisonment. Hill had betrayed his mentor, Paul Vario, who gravely forbid drug trafficking. Hill’s defiance of Vario’s orders put Hill’s life in jeopardy and that sobering thought drove him to the safe haven of the FBI. Death at his heels, Hill sought shelter in the Witness Protection Program and began his journey to redemption. He emerged as the keystone witness who decapitated the Cosa Nostra by assisting in convicting 46 of its bosses, a triumph that branded him a turncoat equal in infamy to Sammy The Bull Gravano, and Joe Valachi. Having recounted his services to law enforcement, Hill’s weary eyes seemed to say he’d rather switch to a lighter topic. “After testifying for the prosecutors and puttin’ away the bad guys, Nicholas Pilleggi and I wrote my book titled, Wiseguy, the basis of Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas. You know, Nick lives out here in the Hamptons with his wife—the novelist, Nora Ephron. “I’m aware of it,” I said. Hill jabbed the air with his finger and snickered. “By the way, Nora came up with the name ‘Wiseguy.’ I bet you didn’t know that.” “Actually, I didn’t, Henry.” Henry Hill, immortalized in the film, Goodfellas, died of natural causes on June12, 2012.

Counting Chickens 12,000 Sq. Ft., 3 1/2 Chickens, Sag Harbor & Some Fresh Eggs By dan rattiner
hen we last heard from the chicken controversy in Sag Harbor three weeks ago, the Building Inspector had ruled that by his interpretation of the new law, no piece of property smaller than 20,000 square feet should be allowed to house a live chicken. This came as a shock to the Mayor and the Trustees. The law they passed in the spring said you could have up to six chickens per 20,000 square feet. It was their intent that people with properties less than that could have proportionally smaller
number of chickens. And people with properties larger than that could have larger number of chickens. So at 40,000 square feet you could have twelve chickens and at 60,000 square feet you could have eighteen chickens. Above that, the new law said “in no event (shall) more than 18 (chickens live) on any parcel.” This interpretation, refusing to allow any chickens unless there were 20,000 square feet, also came as a shock to resident Mare Dianora, who has a house on Grand Street and had a year ago asked the village if she could raise a few chickens in her backyard, expecting a yes or no
answer in a few days. What she got back was that the village had looked through the books and found that there was no law regulating the number of chickens you could have on your property at any one time, so wait a bit and they would write one. Last spring, the new law was passed. Dianora read the rule with high hopes. She had a house on a lot of 13,000 square feet. She did the math. At 13,000 square feet, she could have three chickens, as she understood it. She applied for three chickens. And the Building Inspector turned her (Continued on next page)
Suspicious Girl Scouts Selling Cookies to Sneiv By mr. sneIv
he first recorded case of Door To Door Sales took place near The Harbor of Sag. It was the late summer of 1730 and the town of Sag Harbor had just been settled. The Algonquins sent a band of young Indian girls, dressed in their best outfits, door to door to sell Apios americana, also known as the potato bean, to the townspeople. They cut their deal, then promised to deliver the goods in four to six weeks. Fast forward a few hundred years and I am sitting in my big chair in Southampton. My dogs

are spread out on the floor like fallen soldiers and we are all watching “Seinfeld.” George Costanza is just getting ready to do something stupid, which is common for his character, when I hear a knock on my door. I calm down my dogs and am introduced to two young girls selling cookies to raise money for an “alleged” Scout Summer Camping Trip. Now, I have been scammed before. Just last week I got an email from a guy in Nigeria who came into a lot of money and needed to send it to the United States to avoid taxes. If I would just send him $27,765.28 though Western Union to cover the upfront fees, he would send me the

entire inheritance and I could use the money as I see fit for the next 20 years. So I went to the bank to make a cash withdrawal. The bank only had $4,281.98 in cash so I sent that amount. I decided I would send the rest the next day when I could get to New York City, where banks keep more cash. To my surprise, that very same night, the local news ran a story on this Nigerian Scam. Seems this same guy had offered the same deal to lots of different people. I emailed him several times after that but never got a response. Fresh off this bad experience, I was not going to get taken by some (Continued on next page)

Chicken (Continued from previous page) application down. There would be no chickens on property smaller than 20,000 square feet. Tremors went through this community. In this old whaling town, a majority of the voters live in 18th and 19th century homes, on properties smaller than the 20,000 square foot mark. Would the village board, in the matter of live chickens, discriminate against the majority of the voters? Granted that many of the voters would prefer not to have chickens, (roosters are prohibited), but everybody loves fresh eggs— and those with chickens would be happy to give fresh eggs to neighbors without chickens. What a disaster! After this Building Inspector’s disastrous ruling, the five Village Board members went back into emergency session and decided they
would not give up on this until they made a still newer law that would replace the old new law and be more in keeping with the desires of the village. Various ideas were hatched. Things were thrown up on the wall to see if they’d stick. At noon a clerk was sent out for egg salad sandwiches. The Village Attorney was called in. Hot food was served for dinner: a variety of omelettes. The Building Inspector was consulted. Finally, at midnight, they felt they had something to crow about. But then they saw a bad egg in there, so they went back to work. In the morning, just after a rooster would have crowed announcing the new dawn if they had had one, they had the new law. So here it is: Henceforth, in Sag Harbor

Village, one live chicken will be allowed for each 3,500 square feet of property. So for example, if you have a little whaler’s cottage of 1,000 square feet on 1/10th of an acre (4,400 square feet) you could qualify for one and a quarter live chickens, as I understand it. Is that clear? As for the most live chickens you can have— they are not allowing chicken farms here—the maximum rule still stands. There shall be no more than eighteen chickens on any property regardless of size. As for Dianora with her 13,000 square feet, she can now apply for permission to have three live chickens. And I say they are going to allow her to have them. Stay tuned.
Cookie (Continued from previous page) young girls claiming to be legitimate cookie salespeople. I decided I would ask them a few questions. My first was the most obvious, “If you live in this paradise known as The Hamptons, why would you want to go someplace else on a camping trip?” They both just looked at me with blank stares. It is obvious that they had no reasonable answer. I followed up with, “What merit badge are you working on?” Well, the little one looks at me and sheepishly said, “The Sales Badge.” That answer made sense to me. I decided to take it up to the George Costanza level. “What are you really going to do with the money; use it to fund some Political Super PAC? What side are you on—The right or the left?” Finally the taller one blurted out, “We were on the left side of the street but no one was home so now we are on the right side.” Satisfied that my inquisition had yielded sufficient evidence that they were probably not scammers, I agreed to buy a box. But as I was reaching for my wallet, I began having second thoughts. Was I really convinced they were who they appeared to be? This made me retract my offer of purchase and ask just a few more questions, this time in rapid succession. “How many calories does a Thin Mint have?” “How many cookies are there in a box of Peanut Butter Cookies?” “What was the name of Richard Nixon’s Dog?” That one kind of got off track a little bit. Anyhow, they could not answer a single question. Sure they tried to fool me. I couldn’t remember the darn dog’s name either but I knew it wasn’t SPOT like they suggested. So I told them to leave my porch before I called the cops for illegally operating a commercial business in a residential area. When they were walking down the sidewalk I heard the little one say something under her breath. Satisfied I had avoided being scammed again, I returned to “Seinfeld” and my dogs. George was just then realizing that whatever it is he had done was stupid and everyone was making fun of him. Just about that time, I get another knock on the door. This time it was the father of one of the cookie scammers. I think he used to play linebacker for the Giants. By the way, if you are in my neighborhood, stop by for cookies. I have 864 boxes left. My advice, “Beware Nigerian Internet Offers and Young Girls Selling Cookies.”

Women’s Tennis Association Tries to Tackle On-Court Grunting By Dan Rattiner
know this is going to sound hard to believe, but last week, the Women’s Tennis Association in Key Biscayne announced they are very likely going to pass a law which will ban “excessive grunting” on the women’s professional tennis circuit. They have had many complaints from fans who say the grunting by the women as they hit the ball bothers them. (It doesn’t bother me. I think it’s kind of nifty.) The number one woman in the world does it. So does the woman in slot number two. When
Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova meet in a final, as they did at this year’s Australian Open, it became the battle of the grunts. Azarenka won that battle last year. The fans who are spurring the WTA on are not objecting to occasional or modest grunting. They are also not objecting to when the players reach for a ball in the corner and make a sort of “aaiiieee” sound when they whiff. And they are not objecting when a player grunts upon winning match point. That usually consists of just one grunt. As you might imagine, this distinction, for
the WTA, means that they have to get lawyers involved to define what “excessive grunting” is, and when specifically it is not allowed. Would grunting be allowed as the women change ends for example? All this will take time. It will take even more time because the WTA also has to consider where the existing grunters would fit into this rule. Asking a current day grunter to not grunt could throw the grunter off her game. That wouldn’t be fair. And so, the WTA has let it be known, reassuring those players, particularly #1 and #2, they would like to start curtailing the grunt at the junior level (Continued on next page)

The older guys will be grandfathered, uh, This whole thing reminds me of the time, grandmothered in. Works for me. about 30 years ago, when the National Quite a number of complaints about the Collegiate Athletic Association banned the slam women who grunt are dunk. The slam dunk from either players or had only been part of trainers who say that When a woman tennis grunter loses, the game for the prior during practice, the people think, well she sure went all 10 years. And at that grunters are silent. point, it seemed to be Grunt free. Obviously out, left nothing on the table. getting worse or more they can play without frequent—depending grunting. But this makes no sense. When a on your perspective—as the size of the players player is in practice, they work on their game, got taller and taller. Wouldn’t this be unfair to and take it sort of easy on themselves. And shorter players? Wouldn’t the smaller players there’s no way to improve the grunts, anyway. just have to give up and go home? Well, the And so, the grunting only gets out when these NCAA made their move, and the next year’s
basketball games happened without the slam dunk, and just about everybody saw it as a wrong move. The slam dunk was so exciting. Now we had boring. Attendance dropped off. After two years of this, the suits at the NBA re-thunked the matter and brought it back. We’ve had it since, and it’s a good thing too. Personally, as I said before, I LIKE the grunting at tennis matches. As it happens, it is pretty much confined to women’s tennis. Why? I’m not sure, but I have a theory. Men, on average, are more aggressive than women. The men get aggressive without the grunts. (The few men who do grunt seem to be subject to something like ridicule when they lose. You grunted and STILL couldn’t win? Even with that advantage? How humiliating.)
n the other hand, when a woman tennis grunter loses, people think, well she sure went all out, left nothing on the table. Just lost to a better player. But she was heroic in defeat. From that perspective, what about the grandmothered grunters? What do we make of that? They can grunt, but nobody else can? Doesn’t that give them an advantage? For the next 10 years as they move through their brief careers, should they be handicapped? I would be in favor of grunting for emphasis in all sports, except one, which I will get to at the end of this essay. I think pitchers should be allowed to grunt. There’s that one moment of great effort as they fling the ball into the plate at 100 miles an hour. Grunting would help in my opinion, although doing it might interfere with their chewing tobacco. I think a catcher, about to catch a throw and tag a runner heading for home plate should emit a loud lion-like roar as the runner rounds third. I think Jeter, picking up a hard grounder headed up the middle should let out an Eeeeeeeeyahhh! as he fires the ball to first. And I think in basketball when 3 point Knicks wizard Steve Novack, sets up outside the line and arches a pure swish, he should be permitted to raise his arms and shout Aaaaaaaaaah!

s for football, well, everybody grunts and growls as soon as the ball is hiked. No problem there. Football players, on getting hit immediately after catching a pass go Ooooooofff! There is nothing they can do to stop that. There is also grunting in rugby. And in hockey when a player is slammed into the wall. He goes “Nnnnnnnnn.” The sport where they should ban grunting? Have you ever been to a cricket match? I don’t know the rules of the game and you don’t either, but we do know that if anybody says something, a referee gives them a little yellow flag. That shuts them up.

Aboard Our Fishing Boat Out of Hampton Bays By David lion Rattiner
n Friday morning, I was up at 5 a.m. and was so excited the night before that I barely got three hours of sleep. Fishing was on my mind, and an all day adventure at sea aboard The Hampton Lady with Captain James Foley. When I got to Shinnecock by 6:30 a.m., there were already about 30 or so people on board the beautiful 60-foot fishing charter docked right off of Dune Road. The boat is impressive, but everybody couldn’t wait to get out fishing. There was talk of sea bass season, today was the first day that it was open, and everybody wanted to catch a few to bring home for dinner.
Jim who immediately took out his camera and took a picture. “That’s one of the best looking sea bass I’ve ever seen,” he beamed. Kathy Rae was also having some luck, and caught a sea bass herself along with two other porgy. But possibly the most amazing fisherman on board was an old Chinese guy from Chinatown in the city, who was smoking a cigarette and pulling out fish from the sea as if by magic. He was catching so many, that he started throwing back into the water fish that that were keepers, but weren’t good
enough for him. He was smoking a cigarette and taking a break when I asked him what his secret was, to which he replied, “You just drop the line into the water and wait. Other than that, I cannot tell you more.” We fished and fished, and it was glorious. The smell of the salt air was healthy, and the fishing was shockingly good. Captain Jim knows what he’s doing. I ventured up into the wheelhouse where Captain Jim was looking out at the sea and I asked him if he liked what (Continued on page 58)

Kathy Rae, the Associate Publisher of Dan’s Papers and I met Captain James Foley of The Hampton Lady. Foley is a young captain, but very experienced, having been involved in the fishing business all of his life. He worked in Montauk on the Viking Fleet, and graduated from the Maritime Academy where he obtained his United States Coast Guard Unlimited Tonnage 3rd mate’s license and a Bachelors degree in Marine Transportation, with a minor in international business. Captain Jim has traveled to over 20 countries in Europe and has traveled across the Atlantic Ocean many times on merchant ships and has owned and operated his own charter boats since he was 21 years old. We were in good hands. But could this guy get us what really mattered to us that day, could he find us some sea bass?? The boat engine fired up and we rumbled out of Shinnecock Bay and into the big Atlantic ocean and then headed towards a secret spot that only Captain Jim knows about, and thanks to the help of the three mates on the boat, we were set up to go fishing right away. In less than 15 minutes, people started bringing fish up out of the water. It was incredible. Two men seemed to be catching a new fish every five minutes. I was averaging a new fish every 20 to 30 minutes or so. My first catch was a little porgy, then came a massive eel, and then, the most victorious fishing I’ve ever done in my life took place, a beautiful sea bass that couldn’t have been more perfect. I heard a few cheers from the mates and from Captain

Take the Ferry Between Sag Harbor & Greenport By caroline kaleda
he Peconic Water Jitney is the new water taxi taking passengers between Greenport and Sag Harbor. After much debate, it’s now “Anchors Away!” as the ferry has gained the requisite approvals from the Greenport Village Board, Sag Harbor Village Board and, most recently, Suffolk County. It could begin running as early as June 28. A 53-foot long, 18-foot wide catamaran that travels between 5 and 19 knots, the Peconic Water Jitney will have a capacity for 53 passengers. It will make seven trips every day during the week, beginning at 7 a.m. in Greenport and leaving from there every two hours until the last trip at 8 p.m., except for
Fridays and Saturdays when there is an eighth boat leaving at 10 p.m. Sag Harbor trips will begin

at 8 a.m. Travel time will be about 40 minutes to an hour. Shuttle buses will be available to take passengers between stops in the Hamptons to the Sag Harbor Long Wharf, as well as between Greenport High School and Greenport’s Mitchell Park Pier. The passage will cost $11 for a one-way ticket, and $20 for round trip, with reduced fare for children. Reservations can be made online at peconicjitney.com. The Water Jitney will travel through the Peconic Bay on the west side of Shelter Island and the east side of North Haven. Not only will it connect Sag Harbor and Greenport, but it will also be another connection between the North and South forks that will increase travel between the two, and no doubt be beneficial for businesses on both. Greenport residents are especially looking forward to the increased commerce that the ferry will bring, which is why it didn’t take their village board very long to give its approval.
OTHER LOCATIONS AVAILABLE: A similar low wake catamaran will be bridging the Forks.

The Greenport Village Board approved the water ferry on Thursday, May 10, with the condition that the Hampton Jitney pay the appropriate docking rates. The Sag Harbor Village Board took much longer to approve the ferry, giving it the go-ahead on Tuesday, June 12, a little over a month after Greenport did. The residents of Sag Harbor were unsure if they wanted to support the ferry, not knowing if it would actually be beneficial to the community. Those who did not want the ferry complained that it would increase traffic and pollution, as well as disrupt those using the bay for recreation. Residents of Sag Harbor were unsure if the benefits to the community would outweigh the detriments, it took time for them to offer their support. If the ferry does have detrimental effects on either the Sag Harbor or Greenport communities, either side has the chance to change their mind. The approval of the ferry is really only for a test run, this summer, from the end of June until Labor Day weekend, and if it doesn’t work out, it may not return next summer. If there are too many complaints about the ferry or if it does not have enough passengers per day to be considered worthwhile, the Hampton Jitney will discontinue the service. The mayor of Sag Harbor, Brian Gilbride, discussed the development of a committee of village employees to examine the ferry’s impact on the various issues of concern, especially traffic, parking and commerce. However, as the ferry will really bring the North and South Forks together, many hope that it will be here to stay.
NF Road Show
By marissa pollina
ollecting (and holding onto) antiques is a popular hobby. After an item has been in someone’s possession for many years, the owner will often appraise it to see if it has increased in value. That is where the experts come in. The show Antiques Roadshow is an appraisal service as entertainment. Experts travel all over the country to various places to see people’s antiques or collectables. People in communities bring their items so they can learn more about what they have been holding on to for so long. The experts then go over the item with the owner and give all the details they would want to know. Now you can meet Gary Sohmers, an expert from the show. Sohmers will share his expertise at the Rock Art Show at the Jedidiah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport from June 29 through July 1. He will be selling valuable memorabilia as well as doing appraisals all weekend for people bringing in pop culture items, which is his expertise. As an expert on Antiques Roadshow for 13 seasons, he has appraised hundreds of items associated with pop culture history. “It’s fun,” said Sohmers. “My dad was a traveling salesman. As I grew up I wanted to get involved. I started to collect records.” Sohmers explains that he took his passion of wanting to be a Rock & Roll star and combined it with his collecting skills. “I love it. I have seen some crazy things,” said Sohmers. “(Someone) brought in original comics of the Peanuts by Charles Shultz. That went for $450,000,” said Sohmers. Sohmers laughed and said, “The craziest thing I saw was the Spinning Jaws of Death. A guy walked in with this giant piece of metal that actually spun out of control and grabbed the camera.” He, along with other Antiques Roadshow experts, always tell the owner of the item all of the essentials: if there were any abnormalities, if the date was important, what certain inscriptions mean (if there were any) and what price an item would sell for in the market. The show has experts in all different fields—furniture, watches, portraits, jewelry, scriptures, ceramics, glass and much more. In a particular episode shot in Chattanooga, Tenn., which aired April 6, 2009, a woman’s grandfather had owned a cinema and she had all of his posters, or “lobby cards,” from movies over many generations. Sohmers was able to tell her a great deal about the “lobby cards” from when the poster was created to when the film opened. At Jedidah Hawkins Inn, he will be looking at items people bring just like he does on Antiques Roadshow. “Now I can (give details and prices) without even seeing (the object). Forty years of buying and selling, it’s easy for me to visualize,” said Sohmers. He continued to explain that there are three evaluations for an item—liquidation (what could you get from the item right now), fair market (if the item were in an antique shop what would its real value be) and replacement cost (if the item were to damaged in some sort of fire or other hazard (Continued on page 58)

In fact, once they are admitted to the PMP, it is understood that they have an invitation to come back every year—until they age out, of course. Most campers return year after year. The PMP spends $35,000 per year for each camper, but charges only $6,500 to the students, and has a policy of giving adequate scholarships to anyone who qualifies. The ceremonial ribbon cutting and grand opening will take place on Saturday, June 23 at 7 p.m. While this will be an invitation-only private event, the general public will soon be able to enjoy some aspects of what the Clark Arts Center has to offer, and we can all rest easy knowing that the young female musicians now have a stable roof over their heads!

Sexy Winter Hamptonites By richard gambino
This story originally appeared in The Sag Harbor Express. The Express graciously allowed the author to enter this essay in our contest.
here’s a group of beach beauties who like to show off their taut, wet bodies, and ogle us with unblinking, big, dark, bedroom eyes. They like to hang out in the Hamptons. Once you’ve feasted your sight on them, you’ll never go back to gazing at the likes of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. No, I’m not talking about the bikini-clad summer Hamptonites who jam our beaches. I’m talking about the seals who like to winter here, from December to April. I’ve seen and photographed Harbor Seals, Grey Seals and Harp Seals at Montauk’s northwest coast. (Although they are pure white when babies, the adult Harp Seals who come here in winter are grayish-white with dark splotches.) I’m told that some people have seen two other species also—Ringed Seals and Hooded Seals, which I understand are rarely found this far south. These sunbathers are even less inhibited than their human summer counterparts, and the greatest variety and greatest numbers of them can easily be seen in their birthday suits, at no cost, except for a little walking. The longer, and usually colder way, is to walk west along the beach on Block Island Sound from Montauk Lighthouse. The shorter way, away from the onshore northern winds of winter—and much easier for kids as well—is to walk through woods from a spot on Route 27 marking a trail, about 100 yards west of Camp Hero Road, for about six-tenths of a mile to a low bluff above a beach. Take field glasses for close-up views, and a camera with a long lens and tripod for Richard Gambino is Professor Emeritus at Queens College, holds a PhD in philosophy from New York University and now lives full time in North Haven.
photos. But if you find any seals on the beach, as distinct from on the rocks off shore or in the water near the rocks, do not approach them. Remember, as attractive as they are, they are wild. Female Grey Seals can weigh up to 300 pounds, and male Hooded Seals 800 pounds! All of them, male and female, have very strong jaws and long, pointed canine teeth. As Aretha Franklin used to sing, the word to keep in mind is, “R-e-s-p-e-c-t!” All of the species that visit us each winter are known as “true seals” or “earless seals.” Despite the latter name, they can hear very well, both on land and underwater. Contributing to their streamlined form, their ears are internal, unlike the ears of sea lions and fur seals. Also, the nipples of the female seals can be retracted into the body, as can the testicles and penises of the males, the latter into a deep, internal sheath. The result of this sleekness is that they can swim very fast and turn on a sinking dime, and so catch the many fish they need to eat. And because of their extraordinary noses, which look ordinary to us (except for the Hooded Seal, which can inflate its nose), but are in fact incredibly complex, their sense of smell is superb, not only on land but also underwater. In fact, their hearing and smell are so advanced that a seal could probably find food and survive even if blindfolded. And if their eyes seem all the more soulful because they produce a prodigious amount of tears for protection against salt water, so what? I’ll bet you that Angelina and Brad can’t match any of the above. As amazingly fast and graceful as they are in water, the seals are clumsy on land, and move by awkwardly swinging their front flippers from side to side, as some of our summer beach people do with their cocked elbows when fastwalking, and wiggling their abdominal muscles, as do some of our summer Hamptonites when … well, when doing just (Continued on page 52)

Dylan Lauren Sweet Entrepreneur
â€œEveryone should exercise and eat candy in moderation.â€? Dylanâ€™s Candy Bar in October 2001 feeling nervous about launching her new business while the city was still reeling from the alltoo-recent events of September 11th. But New Yorkers entered the store, greeted by the sight of a 10-foot chocolate bunny, and felt they had entered a world that was a haven from a harsh reality. Lauren wanted to make sure that Dylanâ€™s Candy Bar could give everyone that â€œkid in a candy storeâ€? thrill. There are nostalgic candies like Fruit Stripe gum, Pop-Rocks, Razzles and a â€˜50â€™s favorite Nik-L-Nips. Chocoholics can find chocolate-covered cookies, pretzels, fruit, nuts, and yes, chocolate covered gummy bears. With 7,000 different varieties from

ot many entrepreneurs can cite Willy Wonka as an influential figure in their careers, but Dylan Lauren can. She may have been only 5 years old when she first saw Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, but Wonkaâ€™s world of sweets clearly made an impression. Lauren has built a veritable candy empire with Dylanâ€™s Candy Bar stores in New York, East Hampton and Houston, and locations in Los Angeles and Miami are soon to follow. After a recent renovation, the New York flagship store is the largest candy store in the world at 1,500 square feet. There are three floors of sweet temptation, including a cafĂŠ and bar that serves candyinspired cocktails like a Nerds mojito and a root beer floatini. In addition to the stores, there is a flourishing online business, airport concessions, candy-themed apparel and a Dylanâ€™s Candy Bar Barbie doll. There is even a MacLaren strollerâ€”the Dylanâ€™s Candy Bar Buggyâ€”decked out with the candy emporiumâ€™s bright colors. The youngest child and only daughter of fashion icon Ralph Lauren and his wife of 48 years, Ricky, Dylan grew up with a shining example of a successful entrepreneur right in front of her. Family gatherings at their homes in Bedford, NY and on the East End often turned into brainstorming sessions. Growing up with brothers Andrew and David honed her competitive spirit. She loved beating them at tennis and used her leadership skills and athletic gifts at the Dalton School in Manhattan. Lauren was captain of both the tennis and volleyball teams and was elected class president. After Dalton, Lauren went on to study art history at Duke, enjoying a year in Europe. Next, she studied acting, auditioned to be an MTV veejay, became a certified aerobics instructor and tried her hand at her own special events company. Nothing seemed like a perfect fit until she returned to the idea of candyâ€” she was, after all, the girl who had titled her college essay â€œHow Iâ€™m Like an Everlasting Gobstopper.â€? She began to envision a Wonkaesque wonderland of a store that would stock a huge variety of candy in a colorful environment that would bring out the kid in everyone. Lauren remembers opening the New York
all over the world, not only is there an enormous selection of candies, but Dylanâ€™s Candy Bar has become synonymous with beautifully designed gifts. The selection includes a transparent acrylic briefcase filled with goodies, a chocolate assortment in a brilliant color wheel, tubes filled with chocolate covered Oreos, a gummy assortment and, for people who want to forgo the calories, candy-colored shot glasses. The wide assortment of gifts and apparel includes covers for laptops and cell phones, stationary and more delectable finds. There has even been a book, Dylanâ€™s Candy Bar: Unwrap Your Sweet Life. â€œCandy is childhood,â€? Lauren wrote, â€œ the best and bright moments you wish could have lasted forever.â€? Dylanâ€™s Candy Bar has become a must-see destination for New Yorkers and tourists alike. Her customers have included such notables as Oprah, Michelle Obama, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Tori Spelling. Last June, Lauren embarked on a new adventure. At her parentsâ€™ 300 acre estate in Westchester, she walked down the aisle and married hedge-fund founder/partner Paul Arrouet. Naturally, her dress was designed by her father, who confessed in an interview with Oprah that â€œI want(ed) to just give her something that sheâ€™d really treasure and give her something that would be really amazing. I want(ed) her to feel fantastic.â€? The result was a handmade duchesse satin, silk tulle and georgette embroidered dress with a tiered train that the bride loved so much she remarked to Oprah that â€œI may not take off the dress after the wedding!â€? Despite the rainy weather, the wedding proceeded without incident, if with a few umbrellas held aloft to shelter guests. In the processional, the brideâ€™s brother Andrew chose to walk down the aisle accompanied by his blue heeler Australian shepherd dog, Cinch. With over 300 guests in attendance, including neighbor Martha Stewart, Dylan Lauren walked down the aisle on her mother and fatherâ€™s arms. She and Paul said their vows under a chuppah decked with hydrangeas, lilies and roses. Married life hasnâ€™t slowed Dylan Lauren down. She is busily preparing to open the Los Angeles Dylanâ€™s Candy Bar in the Original Farmerâ€™s Market this summer. (Continued on next page)

Sexy (Continued from page 49) about anything. This process is calledâ€”and Iâ€™m not making this upâ€”â€œgalumphing,â€? and is not unlike how some of us moved when we were in high school. And like some of us when we were 16 or 17, the seals can cover ground fast by galumphing. Seals canâ€™t bark, as sea lions famously do, but communicate by slapping the waterâ€™s surface and grunting, like some of our summer folks. These creatures are not only more graceful underwater than ballet dancers and jet fighter planes, but they can dive very deepâ€”more than 130 feetâ€”stay underwater for very long timesâ€”as much as one hourâ€”and rise to the surface as fast a NASA rocket, without getting the bends. (Human scuba divers need to come to surface with measured slowness after having
been at depths more than 33 feet. Failure to do so causes â€œbends,â€? a forming of gas bubbles in the circulatory system that can cause pain, paralysis and even death.) The seals pump air at high pressure into their lungs and respiratory passages when diving, and so pressurize themâ€”hence no bends. In a similar process, they force air at high pressure into their middle ears to pressurize them and prevent the painful eardrums that can afflict humans in a scuba dive, and the â€œear-poppingâ€? sensation humans have when descending into even the shallow water of a swimming pool. Yet as hardy as these creatures are, they wonâ€™t haul themselves onto rocks â€œto catch some raysâ€? if the wind chill gets too bad, i.e., way below zero F., sensibly choosing to remain in

The Miami store is slated to open the following winter. Just this past Memorial Day weekend, she hosted a charity spin ride at Flywheel spin studio to benefit the Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a New Jersey shelter where she got her own dog, Jersey. â€œI got a collie-lab mutt that is black, fuzzy and cute,â€? said Lauren in an interview with Danâ€™s prior to the event. â€œShe is from Puerto Rico. We named her Jersey because thatâ€™s where the MCSPCA is located, and also because she is very fashionable. I bring her to work sometimes, and everybody just loves her. People are totally shocked when they learn that she is a shelter dog.â€? Dylan is a constant presence at Flywheel, and she worked closely with fellow animal-lover Ruth Zuckerman of Flywheel Sports to organize the East Hampton event and raise money for the MCSPCA. â€œMost of my customers at Dylanâ€™s Candy Bar also love to spin. Basically, where the candy comes in is that I had been talking to Flywheel that everyone should exercise, but also eat candy in moderation, and when we decided that we wanted to do a charity ride, we joined forces.â€? True to her word, Lauren had plenty of 100 calorie chocolate bars on hand to encourage spinners to enjoy their candy without fearing the consequences.

the relatively temperate sea water. In fact, when one appreciates how well adapted and sensible seals are, it isnâ€™t surprising that evolutionary evidence shows that they have been around for 15 million years, despite being preyed on by sharks all that time, and in more recent times by humans. Now one last word. If any of you canâ€™t shake off the bias of speciesism, and still want to stare at the human denizens of our summer beach scene, you can do both! The seals are too sensible to be jealous. However, I canâ€™t say the same for their human counterparts, so donâ€™t tell them of your winter trysts. Let them remain blissfully ignorant in their up-west winter homesâ€”after all, weâ€™re all sophisticated adults, right?

Born in South Dakota and raised in London, Ontario and ultimately Carbondale, Ill., Colvin had learned to play guitar by the time she was 10 years old. Her first public performance was on campus at the University of Illinois when she was 15 years old. From her Midwestern roots, Colvin moved on to Austin, Texas, where she became more engrained in the country-rock genre, as she worked on other artists’ material. Miller heard Colvin’s work and encouraged her to come to New York to sing in his band. She was soon performing with the likes of Suzanne Vega, as she worked to discover her own voice as a songwriter. Colvin released her first album, Steady On, in 1989, for which she earned a Best Contemporary Folk Album Grammy. But it was Colvin’s fourth album, A Few Small Repairs and the track “Sunny Came Home,” an eventual Top 10 hit, that catapulted her into the upper echelon of the music industry. In addition to earning the Grammy for Song of the Year in 1998, the song also won Record of the Year. Colvin has since garnered an international following, as fans have come to know her for her humor, sensuality and ability to combine her knack for storytelling with strong, simple melodies. “A lot of times, the inspiration is what is given to me,” says Colvin, who explains that she often receives just the music or the title of the song and is then asked to write the lyrics.

Water Coolers: Not Cool! At the Dan’s Papers offices in Southampton there is a water cooler in the kitchen area that gets frequently used. The office water cooler is the source of life for many-a-Dan’s employee. It is used for the coffee machine, it is used for tea, it is used for quick cups of a refreshing cup of Spring water that has been sitting in a big plastic container for months. Anyway, something that has happened is that we go through a lot of water here. I mean a lot. It’s like a jug of water two or three days, and because I’m the biggest guy in our office, it is now officially my job, more or less, to replace the jug when it is empty. These jugs weigh roughly 50 pounds, and I pick this thing up with two hands, rip the lid off of the top of the jug, and swing it, with a fair amount of effort and skill, on top of the water cooler. The water then flows into the cooler and a bunch of gurgling sounds are made, and if I’m lucky, everything goes according to plan. So far there hasn’t been one major water jug spill in the office since I’ve done this. I’m batting a thousand with this. I will say however, that I can’t help but think that this is by far the stupidest system in the history of the world when it comes to getting water from a jug into a cooler. You have to be pretty strong to do it. It’s terrifying, because there is risk of major spillage, and the bottom line is that it just seems so stupid. Why is this set up this way? Who the hell invented this thing? If an alien from outer space came down to earth and observed this behavior, he would be fascinated by it. “All of these office workers do everything pretty easy. They communicate by picking up a light telephone. When they want to go somewhere, they walk or get into their cars in order to travel some place. If they are hungry, they eat something from their desks. But we don’t understand the water cooler. For some reason, instead of having a system where water is pumped from a jug on the ground, they take jug, lift it over their heads, and then, quite comically, plop it on top of this large device known as the office water cooler. It is very odd indeed.” It is odd and, damn it, somebody needs to invent something that makes this better. And so, here is my idea. Okay, so instead of having to lift this damn thing up off of the ground and plop it on top of the water cooler, we create a system where the water jug is slid UNDERNEATH the water cooler instead of on top. “But David! How will the water flow from the bottom to the top, there is no gravity to pull the water down through the tube! This system won’t work!” Nay. Nay I say. Nay. Because the fact of the matter is that there is this magical invention called A WATER PUMP. It’s quite complicated, but let me tell you how it works. Let me explain it to you in a scientific

THAT YOU WANT THAT WATER TO GO. So there you have it, I think we should call this invention, “The E-Z Water Cooler” and market it to every office in America, or dare I say it, the world. Who wouldn’t want this device? It would just be so easy. Anybody? Anybody out there? Want to do this? There are billions to be made with this. Okay I gotta go, the secretary here is calling my name, and I can tell by the sound of her voice she is need of a new water jug to go on top of the water cooler here. I must do God’s work and give the gift of water to the people using my massive guns. My guns are so sore today, but I have some tickets to the gun show if you want to go.

EECO Farm Spreads the Love...and Compost If you live on the East End you’ve heard of EECO Farm. You may have driven by it on Long Lane, opposite East Hampton High School. EECO stands for “East End Community Organic.” Along the road you can see 100 colorful, small-plot gardens. Behind them are 25 acres of
farmland. I went behind the automatic gate for the first time last Saturday. It’s so cool in there! The mellifluous birdsong, the men on small tractors
and the hoop houses can all be explained by the EECO pledge that all participants sign—no harmful pesticides or herbicides or fungicides. The scene took me back to my childhood upstate, everyone who passed shares a wave and a smile, but it’s more like a beehive than open farm country—busy, busy, busy. In addition to fruit and vegetable crops there are some actual beehives in there—manmade hives tended by Mary Woltz of the Bee’s Needs honey company. Many farmers you see at our local farmers markets rent land and toil away at EECO, including the crews from Bette & Dale’s Farm and Balsam Farms.

Cover Artist Kevin Sloan By Marion Wolberg Weiss
ooking at this week’s cover, “Birds of America: At the Beach” by Kevin Sloan may leave some people perplexed. While the image of a large pelican gets our attention, it seems incongruent, with the bird’s mouth filled with fruit, flowers and a clock. It’s clearly an odd kind of still life that recalls Magic Realism. But the image is also conceptual and surrealistic, like many of Sloan’s works. Another similarity is the motifs: sliced or half-eaten fruits, clocks and animals that might have lived during the dinosaur age. Is that what the artist had in mind? Q: Your paintings are very much open to interpretation regarding their themes and even their styles. Is that your intention? A: My work can communicate to many different people. I encourage multiple interpretations. One person can have an experience and what it feels like to them is different from another person. I communicate through symbolism and metaphors. An orchard can mean eloquence and be exotic to one person, but it may mean something entirely different to someone else. Q: Where did you get your inspiration for this work and others that you do? A: From the 1800s and John James Audubon. In fact, he also did a painting called “Birds of America.” The cover painting is based on his “Brown Pelican.” It has the same pose as Audubon’s, and the pelican’s beak is open. Q: What attracted you to Audubon’s art in the first place? A: I’m interested in him because he’s a little bit odd and quirky. He was out in the frontier on his own. Q: What was particularly odd, not about his art, but about his behavior? A: He killed the birds that he painted or drew. There were no cameras then. He had to kill the animals to preserve them. It’s ironic that The Audubon Society is famous for protecting wildlife. At the end of his life, he regretted what he did. Q: So how did Audubon inspire you? A: My work is a way of honoring him and also to speak about environments in contemporary time. I see us as collaborators. Q: What would you consider your own signature or essential elements that inform your work? A: I like to do beyond the expected, to give the images a little twist. But I also like to tell a story, a narrative. Q: What about your interest in nature? Where did that come from? A: I was always interested in the natural world. I need to see nature in action. It can be as simple as being in my garden. But it also came from where I lived. I grew up in Des Moines, Iowa. I found it interesting to see the contrasts between Des Moines and the cornfields and farms where my cousins lived. It was transfixing, exotic. Q: How about the places you lived? How did that effect your connection to the environment? I know you lived in the East when you went to Tyler School in Philadelphia and then the University of Arizona in Tucson. A: I also lived in New York for six months, but I realized something was missing, a connection

to the natural world. I liked San Francisco. It’s a city, but it’s easy to get to natural places. I’ve lived in Santa Fe for 12 years, after visiting it 15 years ago when I was at the University of Arizona. Q: How did these different environments influence your art now? A: I don’t find the landscape in New Mexico interesting at all. It forced me to draw on other places. I created hybrid environments in my paintings. I mix them up. I also mix up objects in my imagery – they are from different times. Kevin Sloan’s work can be seen in “Landscrapes” at Sag Harbor’s Richard Demato Gallery, on view from June 23- July 23.

certification, so it can become an official non-profit organization. Built in 1902, the building remains structurally sound as it has held on well to its original architectural integrity, despite being moved around. The committee has inspiring intentions of refurbishing it with the plan of turning it into a community center. The committee plans to build a white porch around the ocean-facing side, stretching from door to door like an ear-to-ear smile, and plans to replace some windows on the east and west side with two large doors that were part of its original design. â€œWe want to restore it to its 1902 character,â€? says Miller with a smile. â€œWe had to do it this year. John Cullen died last 1 4/6/12 10:43 AM year andDansPapers_BlueSky_18.pdf no one did anything special for him,â€? adds Miller. â€œIt was something that needed to be done.â€?
For me, the night hit its peak when I heard William Cullen speak of his cousin. â€œIâ€™m 91 years old,â€? Cullen said, â€œbut when I heard about this I had to be here for John.â€? After the performance was over, William Cullen remained on the beach reminiscing about his late cousin. â€œHe never talked about it much, he was a gentleman, but he was proud of itâ€”and what he did,â€? William Cullen solemnly recalls. William Cullen remembers one of the last conversations he had with his cousin down in Chesapeake, Virginia. â€œHe said, Bill, they named a street at the Coast Guard Station after me. I said, John, they should name the whole darn thing after you,â€? said with a smile, holding back a sadder countenance. â€œIâ€™m proud to say he was my cousin.â€?

he did for a living. â€œMost people sit in office cubicles behind a desk, this is my office. Itâ€™s not so bad, I got my navigation and my satellite TV,â€? he pointed to some of the electronics on the boat, â€œItâ€™s not the worst place in the world Â to spend your day thatâ€™s for sure,â€? he said with a laugh. The life of a charter boat fishing captain was good that day. It was perfectly sunny, the fishing was fine, the water was calm and there was a light wind from the southeast. You could tell Captain Jim was having a good day. â€œDo you do this only in the summertime?â€? I asked. â€œWe do it year round. Weâ€™ll do this in the dead of winter, itâ€™s awesome.â€? By the end of the day, there was not a single person on Captain Jimâ€™s Hampton Lady who went home empty handed. The mates spent much of the ride back fileting the fish that were caught on board to give back to the customers. A pile of fish began to fill up the stern of the boat as a sharp filet blade expertly cut through each fish. I walked back to my car with a full bag of sea bass and porgy, feeling exhausted, but also feeling accomplished. Not a bad way to spend your day in the Hamptons, I thought. The drive back home was spent dreaming of nothing else but the smell of fresh sea bass cooking in olive oil at home in my kitchen.

Getting “Sirious” with My iPhone By MATTHEW APFEL
There’s a new woman in my life. Sort of. We met a few weeks ago—in a crowded tech store, of all places. She was surrounded by nerds and geeks, and all of them wanted to date her. My friends have been raving about her, trying to set us up on a date for months. So I struck up a conversation. Her name is Siri. She’s expensive and gentle and has a creepy, yet oddly soothing voice. She never gets excited about anything. Dating her is like when Harrison Ford hooked up with the Sean Young Replicant from Blade Runner. We are just getting to know each other, but amazingly she seems to know everyone in my address book and the most intimate details of my personal life. It’s like she can see the future. It’s an intriguing new fling for sure. But will Siri and I stand the test of time? Or will some other new partner come along down the line? Siri, of course, is the voice automation software on the new iPhone. I always prefer to wait before buying brand new products, to let the manufacturers sort out any bugs. So I finally picked up a new iPhone 4G last week. And there she was. Ready to interface. It was awkward at first. I had no idea what to say or do, kind of like meeting a cute girl at my
8th grade dance. So I just started talking. And she responded! We decided to spend a glorious Southampton Saturday together, to see if we are truly destined to become an item. 6:14 a.m. I come out swinging and ask Siri: “Get my morning paper.” She gently says she doesn’t understand. Hmm. Is this a feminist power play? Or maybe tech devices just don’t relate to newsprint. After a few more tries she pulls up Dan’s online so I can read my latest column. Lesson: You need to be really specific with Siri and dictate every word carefully, including punctuation. She knows the difference. 7:46 a.m. Time for a little exercise. It’s gray and gloomy. Are these storm clouds or just some morning fog? I ask Siri to pull up “Hamptons weather.” Again she gets confused and delivers the forecast for Southampton, England. (It calls for rain, of course.) Looks like Siri digs international travel. This could get expensive. Lesson: Make sure you enable location services on your iPhone, to help Siri find places and information closest to you. 12:07 p.m. Jog is over. I am now at Agawam Park with my kids. An important work email comes in. I need to respond, but I am holding my son on the monkey bars and can’t free my hands to type. Perfect task for Siri. I ask her to dictate an email. Uh oh. Seems that all the screams and
laughter and kids’ voices around us are really confusing. Siri’s emails keep getting cut off and have all kinds of gobbledygook, gibberish and other nonsense. Lesson: Siri prefers a quiet room for meaningful conversation. Maybe she’s not as extroverted and dynamic as I first thought. 4:26 p.m. My wife walks in while I’m asking Siri to make dinner reservations at Mirko’s. She accuses me of cheating and technically speaking, I am, since I’ve only said about five sentences to my wife all day. My wife doesn’t care about infidelity. She wants Mirko’s rigatoni. But everything goes south when Siri can’t find the right phone number. We end up with no table. I throw some burgers on the grill. Lesson: Siri is not popular with my wife. But my kids love telling her to say “poop” and “fart” and other silly words. They revel in Siri’s general confusion and docile disposition. 8:55 p.m. After talking to Siri all day, she suddenly falls asleep. At 8:55 on a Saturday night! iPhone batteries are legendary for their short lives, but this is ridiculous. Lesson: Siri is kind of cool and definitely has promise. But she is complicated and not so easy to talk to. If you’re looking for a girlfriend that makes jokes, parties late, and has connections all over the East End, you’re better off finding someone named Lindsay or Paris. For now.

STONY BROOK: The story book Stony Brook Seawolves baseball team fell to perennial NCAA powerhouse Florida State in Omaha on Sunday, ending their College World Series championship run. The 2012 season was the most successful in Stony Brook baseball history, as they won a program recordsetting 52 wins. Stony Brook burst onto the national scene by defeating Miami, Missouri State and Central Florida in NCAA Regional play, and they punched their first-ever trip to the College World Series with a win over Louisiana State University in the NCAA Super Regionals. On Tuesday, the New York Mets invited the Seawolves to Queens to participate in batting practice and to meet members of the team prior to their game against the Baltimore Orioles. Stony Brook head coach Matt Senk, the 2012 NCBWA National Head Coach of the Year, threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Play ball!

SOUTHAMPTON: The former Rogers Memorial Library building on 11 Jobs Lane in Southampton, which was purchased about 12 years ago by the Parrish Art Museum and has since served as the home of the Parrish’s Carroll Petrie Center for Education, has been sold for $2.875 million. The new owner, Ajax Holdings LLC, apparently plans to restore the building, which could eventually turn into retail space with offices on the upper level. The Parrish purchased the space from the library with the $3 million donated by board member Carroll Petrie, and they envisioned combining the building with their space at 25 Jobs Lane to create a larger, state of the art facility in the village. When that proposal fell through, the Parrish decided to build at the Water Mill location. They plan to move to the Montauk Highway building this fall and have until the end of the year to vacate the Jobs Lane space. The deal reportedly closed on April 30, and it was recorded on May 15. Last week, Southampton Village officials gave the Founders Committee the go-ahead to pursue building a portable recreational pavilion at the Parrish’s 25 Jobs Lane space. The structure could be ready for concerts, movies and theatre as early as next summer.
Unique Funding Brings Bike Shop to Sag Harbor
SAG HARBOR: The Sag Harbor Cycle Company opened its doors on June 8 to great fanfare—the efforts of a number of Sag Harbor residents and avid cyclists had finally come to fruition. The idea to open the shop came as cycling enthuiasts sought to keep the village’s status as a bike mecca alive, despite the closing of BikeHampton in Sag Harbor a few months ago. In a unique financial effort, 20 to 25 investors pooled their money together to start the new shop at 34 Bay Street. The effort has clearly been fueled by strong community support, and Sag Harbor Cycle looks to become a prominent East End cycling hub.

Art with a Voice: Charles Wildbank
ou can view many of Charles Wildbankâ€™s works at the big Westhampton Beach Art Show, August 4 and 5. Or, this weekend, you can pay a visit to Jamesport to see his work in a very special setting. This show is inside the barn at the Jedidiah Hawkins Inn, much like the restaurant and inn next door, itâ€™s worth the trip! Luscious lips so moist that it requires real restraint not to touch the canvas. A young organic farmer, dreds gathered loosely at the nape of his neck, beard stubble that begs to be rubbed. Beaded sweat on the forehead of a young red-head boy, as the sun streams through the translucent cartilage of his earlobe. That is the genius of Jamesport artist Charles Wildbank. You know his workâ€”itâ€™s graced the covers of Danâ€™s Papers more than nine times, most recently in April of 2012. His photorealism compositions evoke deep emotion and his new abstracts delight the eye and the senses with swirls and layers. And you can see the originals now at the Jedediah Hawkins Gallery in Jamesport, through June 24.
that is 18 feet high. As the size of his canvases have grown, so has the scope of his work. His current show reflects a new direction with abstract pieces and a focus on the elements, particularly water and large waves. â€œWater is timeless,â€? he says. The computer has also altered the way he approaches his work. â€œItâ€™s fast â€“ you have an instant preview,â€? and he likes the effects he can achieve with tools like Photoshop and iBrush. It also allows him to show his work anywhere in the world. Always expanding his art and his perspective, Wildbank says â€œI have done some sculpture in alabaster and I am

Born deaf and raised in Nassau County, Wildbank always knew he would be an artist. â€œI couldnâ€™t speak and had lousy self-esteem,â€? he says with clear articulation. Mainstreamed in school at six years old, he was grateful when a teacher called his parents and said he should be taking art lessons. â€œIt was a great relief,â€? he says. â€œWhen you are deaf, you have to have something you can do. You canâ€™t talk. You canâ€™t play baseball and follow the coachingâ€Śit was very frustrating for me. Drawing was something I was good at. â€? And he was very good. At the entrance to his current exhibit a small watercolor is set on an easel. It is a portrait of his grandfather as a young man, painted by Wildbank at the age of fifteen. It appears to be the work of a far more mature artist, capturing the essence not just the image. On the strength of his portfolio, he was accepted into Pratt Institute. The environment at Pratt was exciting for a young artist. â€œI soaked in the entire art world, there was a group energy factor that I liked. It intensified everythingâ€Śâ€? Concerned about making a living, he went on to receive a Masters Degree from Columbia in Special Education, â€œto have something to fall back onâ€? and taught for seven years. But he missed the art world and finally made the leap to pursue art full time in his late twenties. â€œI started in store windows on Fifth Avenue and had a few sales. Then Cartier gave me a show and I sold a big painting. That was my big break.â€? And when Wildbank says big â€“ he means BIG! His canvases regularly measure upwards of eight feet. He recently completed a mural for the Queen Mary II

exploring glass and new materials. I am using a lot of metallic.â€? He is also more contemplative these days. â€œI do more meditation and I am loosening the boundaries, experimenting. I am interested in energy â€“ the spiritual and organic. Itâ€™s arterial. If you are connected on all levels with your senses, you have more clarity. You donâ€™t have any resistance â€“ that comes with maturity.â€?
