by Dan Rattiner A 17-year-old cabana boy sees a man splashing in the ocean on a rough day calling for help. It’s a swim at your own risk beach. Does he go for help? Or does he swim out and save him? Hint: His quick thinking makes him a hero.
by Dan Rattiner Jackson Pollock died in a car crash in 1956. On the fifth anniversary of his death, this reporter went up into the wilds of Springs to seek out Bonackers and see what Pollock really was like. Here is the story of my encounters.

by Dan Rattiner We give piping plovers great privileges. So they have priority where they nest on the beaches, thus blocking our access. Let’s forget about saving plovers. Let’s save the Osprey. They live high atop telephone poles.

TREADMILL POWER 8.
Putting Americans Back to Work Here’s my million dollar idea. Equip the 50 million treadmills in America with generators that can convert the power from the running into electricity. Then have the electricity sent through wires to the electric company. This idea came to me yesterday when a man on the radio said “now all you use is a remote, but back in our day we had to get up and change the channels.” I thought his next thought would be about why we’re fat, but it wasn’t. Nevertheless, it did made me think of treadmill power. The rest of the world can make things on an assembly line for a dollar a day. Americans can provide the electricity to power their machinery.

Congratulations, Alec Baldwin! The Amagansett resident wed yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas at St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in New York last weekend. Guests included Tina Fey, Stephen and Billy Baldwin, Woody Allen and wife Soon Yi, Robert Kennedy Jr. Alec & Hilaria and Hamptons neighbors Mariska Hargitay and Lorne Michaels. After a six-year absence, Alec Baldwin will return to Broadway in Lyle Kessler’s Orphans. In Orphans, two down-on-their-luck brothers are living in a rundown Philadelphia row house. Treat, the eldest, supports his damaged younger sibling with petty thievery. One night, he kidnaps a rich older man, Harold, played by Baldwin who turns out to have his own motives. “I have dreamed for a long time of doing this play with this director,” Baldwin said in a statement released with the announcement. Orphans will be directed by Daniel Sullivan (“The Columnist”) and produced by Frederick Zollo and Robert Cole (“Once”); it will play at a Shubert Theater, dates to be announced in the spring. While thousands enjoyed the fireworks displays over the weekend, dozens of East Enders were treated to seeing actor/director Bob Balaban, wearing a nifty little straw hat, food shopping in Wainscott on Sunday.
Our thoughts are with the friends and family of East Hampton’s Nora Ephron, who passed away from leukemia last week. Among her many writing accomplishments are films When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail, and two popular essay collections: I Feel Bad About My Neck and I Remember Nothing.
Aviva Drescher, star of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” and ex-husband Harry Dubin reportedly got into a heated scuffle over child support last weekend. The provocation? Sandwiches at The Golden Pear in Southampton. Dorothy Lichtenstein may be making a big move soon: from Gin Lane to Meeting House Lane in Southampton. The widow of pop artist Roy Lichtenstein already has a home in mind, and has even had it inspected by an engineer.

“Along with the New York Subway System, Hamptons Subway is the only underground transit system in the State of New York.”
The H amptons Subway Newsletter By DAn rattiner
Week of July 6-12, 2012 Riders this week: 19,999 Rider miles this week: 199,998
DOWN IN THE TUBE Fashion designer Nicole Miller was seen on the Hampton Subway last Monday morning between Water Mill and Bridgehampton, apparently on her way to a rehearsal for the Dan’s Taste of Two Forks event July 14.
TVs ON THE SUBWAY The attempt to provide electronic entertainment instead of the live music from the troubadours who until now wandered the subway cars has ended in failure. Frank Whipple, the Hampton Subway’s new marketing director had ordered the change. The electronic entertainment consisted of old non-flat screen TVs which he got cheap and had mounted on brackets high up on each subway car tuned
to FOX NEWS which he also apparently got free. Unfortunately, few people watched the TVs, because the noise from the subway was so loud you couldn’t hear what the anchors and sportscasters were saying. The next day, Whipple had all the channels changed to HBO, which resulted in a chaos of riders missing their stops hoping to see the ends of the movies and then scrambling off to cross the platforms to go the other way. All the TVs were therefore taken down and put in our Montauk warehouse for future sale.
COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE I will be at the Dan’s Taste of Two Forks event on Saturday July 14 at Sayre Park in Bridgehampton, as part of the early VIP group. It’s not that I want to go. But I have to go to keep an eye on our competition for next year. Also, I am going to be seated next to Chef JeanGeorges Vogerichten, the host of the event, or so Frank Whipple, my marketing director, said just before I fired him.
NOT QUITE Hampton Subway was most disappointed this week when it seemed that we were on the verge of setting two new world records—the number of riders who use the service weekly, and the number of rider miles traveled by all the riders weekly. No week has ever had a total of 2,000 riders and 20,000 miles before. When it was apparent that we were on the verge of a new record, Security Chief Max Bellows was sent down to our busiest station, Southampton, to see if he couldn’t persuade someone who did not intend to use the subway on that last day to do so. But when he pushed someone on, the fellow jumped right back off. Bellows also ordered subway doors not opened at that station for a half hour as the trains came in and left, so people would have to stay on until Hampton Bays. But when other people heard about this they got off a station early. So it was not to be.
TOKEN BOOTH SACKED Last Wednesday morning at 8:15 a.m., during the rush hour, the computer that allows our token booth operator at Amagansett to sell new subway cards broke down, so certain people heading to work were not able to do so. The token booth was pushed over on its side with Maybelle Edison, the operator in it. She was slightly injured but was told to take the day off even after protesting that she need not do so but then did so. Good Samaritan straphangers righted the toll booth and token booth operator manager Henry Attenborough took her place.
TASTE OF ONE SUBWAY A BIG HIT The big food event Taste of One Subway held last Friday at the urging of our Commissioner to upstage the upcoming Dan’s Taste of Two Forks at Sayre Park in Bridgehampton on Saturday July 14 at 6:30 p.m. VIP and 7:30 Regular was a big hit. Our event was intended to be catered by 17 chefs and 38 wineries on all the subway platforms simultaneously, however, the “suits” from the Subway restaurant chain reminded Hampton Subway at the very last minute that because they hold the exclusive food franchise rights to the platforms, all food would be provided by them. So attendees feasted on Turkey and Cheese sandwiches, meatball heroes, yogurt and salad. A chef identified as Monsieur Henri d’Ouberge Avignon, who said he was the Chef who was supposed to be featured at the event, got arrested. He threw pate and caviar at the people behind the Subway counter on the Southampton platform, causing them to falter in attempting to complete their duties to the crowd there. 17524

SCAM! The Long Island Power Authority has sent out a warning to customers after a scam was discovered involving utility bills. The scam is a letter that states a Federal program will pay for their utility bills, and in order for the customer to qualify, they have to provide a social security number and bank routing number. You got to admit that itâ€™s pretty scary that there is so much government now people are being duped into something like this. SHELTER ISLAND

Old Man McGumbus, 105 years old, former World War II B-52 Bomber Pilot and owner of the Shelter Island Military Camp For Boys was arrested last week after he assaulted a 29-year-old man during a fundraiser on Shelter Island to raise money for his foundation, The Building Shelter Island Health Trust (BULSIHT). The trust was attempting to raise $300,000 for an ongoing study to determine the structural integrity of historical homes on Shelter Island. The current home being studied is McGumbusâ€™ residence. Since the inception of the trust under McGumbusâ€™ leadership 30 years ago, the house has grown from three bedroom home into a sprawling estate stretching out over 20,000 square feet. The fact that McGumbusâ€™ home is the only home that has benefited from BULSIHT was recently written about in the local newspaper on Shelter Island by investigative reporter Billy McDougle, the current fiancĂŠ to Jennifer McBisquick, Man McGumbusâ€™ stepdaughter. When McGumbus saw McDougle at the fundraiser, he immediately karate chopped him in the neck and then did a flying scissor kick to his face, and the two began to wrestle. McDougle tried to gain control of McGumbusâ€™ small frame, but McGumbus wiggled his way out and began beating him with a tiki torch, which caused a fire that burned the tent. The fight continued as the entire structure burned to the ground. â€œFIGHT BACK YOU BASTARD!â€? McGumbus yelled as he punched. But for some reason, McDougle continued to take the punishment. â€œYOU DONâ€™T GET IT MCGUMBUS! Iâ€™M MARRYING YOUR STEP-DAUGHTER WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT!â€? McGumbus hurled one final punch that McDougal dodged, which sent McGumbus headed toward a cliff. McGumbus fell over the ledge and dangled over the side hanging onto a tree branch. â€œTAKE MY HAND!â€? McDougal cried. â€œNEVER!â€? McGumbus continued to struggle. As he gave one last slip, McGumbus let go, but McDougal, in mid-air, caught the old man from falling. â€œDAMN YOU OLD MAN MCGUMBUS. I SHOULD JUST LET YOU DIE!â€? He hoisted McGumbus off of the cliff and back to safety. As the tent fire was put out, the two of them stared together at the fire in silence, at which point McGumbus took a flask out of his breast pocket filled with Wild Turkey Kentucky Bourbon. McGumbus took a sip, then handed it over to Billy. â€œYou know what kid? Youâ€™re all right.â€?

Jean Carlos Barrientos holding his county proclamation last week.
Amagansett Big Surf, a Man Drowning Far Off and the 17 Year Old Who Saved Him By Dan Rattiner
n East Hampton High School junior, Jean Carlos Barrientos, known as J.C., is working this summer as a cabana boy at the Driftwood Motel in Napeague. He is probably the most celebrated cabana boy at any resort or club anywhere on eastern Long Island. On Sunday afternoon, June 3, he saved a man from drowning in the ocean in the most dramatic and remarkable way possible. Where Barrientos works, there are no ocean lifeguards. In fact, along the whole row of beach resorts in Napeague, there are lifeguards for the swimming pools, but none for the ocean. The responsibility for this lies with the Town, which does not have an “official” ocean beach with lifeguards from Kirk Park Beach in Montauk to the Atlantic Avenue Beach in Amagansett 11 miles away. At these resorts, which are between these two, it’s swim at your own risk, something that as a result of what happened that day might lead to some new thinking. On that day, however, the thinking was done by 17 year old J.C. Barrientos. A wooden plank boardwalk runs along the face of the Driftwood where it faces the ocean, and Barrientos was, at 3 p.m. that day, walking along it. Then he thought he heard something. A
man crying, crying for help, out in the sea. He looked. There was a man splashing frantically way off shore. He was a good 200 yards out. Something would have to be done. Immediately. The sea was very rough that day. What should he do? As it happened, J.C. knew exactly what to do. Two years earlier, as a high school freshman, he had taken a summer job at the Amagansett Beach Association as a beach boy. While there, he very closely followed the free lifeguard training program he and the other kids were given by John Ryan Sr., the chairman of the East Hampton water safety committee and a lifeguard trainer. At the end of the program, young J.C. had taken the rigorous physical test in the ocean that prospective lifeguards have to take. Although too young to be eligible to become a lifeguard, he passed it. “Come back in two years and take it again for real,” Ryan told those who passed back then. J.C., as it turned out, could not wait. Some of the cabana boys carry pocket walkietalkie radio to stay in touch with everyone. J.C. looked again out to the drowning man where the man’s splashing was getting slower and slower, so he shouted to a nearby cabana boy with a radio to call Arianna at the front desk and tell her to call 911. And also (Continued on next page)

Saved (Continued from previous page) to call Perry Halburd, the resort’s supervisor, and tell him to come quick. Then J.C. was off and running down the beach. The waves were big. He was scared. But he knew not to go in without a float. He grabbed two as he went past the locker where they are kept—one an inflatable, and the other a red styrofoam torpedo, and ran down to the surfline and pulled the cord that was suppose to automatically blow up the inflatable. It didn’t. So he threw it off to the side and raced in with the torpedo strapped around him, diving into the waves and swimming as fast as he could to get to the drowning man. When he got to him, he saw he was face down in the water not moving. He reached in under the man’s arms and got him in a cross-chest carry, then lifted his head out of the water and headed back to shore with him. The man seemed dead. He hoped he wasn’t. On his way in, at a sandbar about 30 yards off shore, J.C. met Halburd splashing along, coming out. Together now, the two of them half dragged and half carried the motionless man up onto the sand and laid him down on his back. He looked gone. Eyes rolled back. Face blue. Halburd also thought he was dead. But he started CPR. At this point, running over, was the man’s girlfriend, and she was hysterical. Halburd continued on. There was no pulse. It was only a few minutes later that the first of the professional help arrived, responding to Arianna Clarke’s 911 call. Randy Hoffman, an EMT technician and captain of the Amagansett
Fire Department’s ambulance squad, was carrying down the beach a portable EKG machine with paddles and a defibrillator and a bag/valve oxygen delivery machine. He attached the defibrillator, attached the mask that pushes oxygen into the man’s nose and mouth and took over the CPR. He got a pulse. He waited for some heart rhythm so he could hit the defibrillator, but it was too sporadic. Moments later, there were more professionals arriving, some from the East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue Squad and with their help, they got the man up the beach and into the ambulance and off to the hospital. On the way, the heartbeat became regular and Nicola Devito, from Brooklyn, woke up. Now he began talking. He wanted to know what was going on? What happened? The Driftwood? He was not a guest there. He would make it. It was J.C.’s immediate actions that saved this man’s life. When John Ryan Sr. heard about it—he was interviewed by reporters from the Star and from Patch—he told them that on that day the ocean was so rough that his town lifeguards had to struggle to make their daily morning swim from Indian Wells Beach to Atlantic Beach. He also pointed out how J.C.’s specific actions, taken within seconds, calling 911 and the manager, allowed for the rest of the rescue to unfold on a just in time basis. “I’m convinced that if he didn’t have the presence of mind to take that torpedo out with him—you don’t make rescues like this by
yourself—one of them would have died,” said Ryan, according to the East Hampton Star. J.C., of course, said he owed everything to Ryan. He was scared, yes, but he knew what to do because of him.
hree days after the rescue, at an athletic awards ceremony held before 600 students and parents in the High School auditorium, J.C., along with other members of the school’s soccer team, were honored for having won the County Championship. (J.C. was one of the stars of the team.) And then, after that team sat down, J.C. was called up alone, at which time six members of the East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue Squad came out onto the stage to explain what he had done and shake his hand in appreciation. The audience gave him a standing ovation and his parents, Emma Barrientos, who works at the Bridgehampton National Bank, and her husband Julio Barrientos, who owns his own landscaping company, could not have been more proud. Three weeks after that, J.C. and his mother went to the Suffolk County Legislature in Riverhead to receive a second award, this time from the County. County Legislator Jay Schneiderman presented it, a framed proclamation from the County about his heroism. Though all of the county awards are given out in the beginning of the session, it was asked that people from East Hampton High School who were being honored could go first. J.C. had a test later in the day and wanted more time to study for it.

ackson Pollock died in a massive car crash on August 11, 1956. It took place on a curve heading north on Springs-Fireplace Road in East Hampton. And it happened because Pollock was drunk. He was also angry. Angry at the two young lovelies half his age in the convertible car with him because they wanted to go to a party and he did not. His wife was in Paris at the time. â€œYou want to go to this party?â€? he asked. â€œHow about this?â€? And he stepped on the gas, his blue
Oldsmobile issuing a big puff of blue smoke, then surging forward to 60 miles an hour, then to 70, then to eighty. The girls screamed as Pollock failed to make the turn. The car skidded, slid off the road into the woods, bounced off a tree, and rolled over several times. When the police found the wreckage, they found Pollock still in the driverâ€™s seat, decapitated. One of the young women was also dead. The second had been thrown from the car and was injured, but recovered. She wrote a book about Pollock. The world-famous painter, the founder of drip painting, was in love with her, she said. She loved him too, she said, and Jackson Pollock would for the rest of her life. He would be divorcing his wife, he had told her. He hated his wife. And she was away in Paris, anyway. On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of
Pollockâ€™s death in 1961, articles appeared in other newspapers. He had been a nasty drunk, a conflicted, paranoid, confused man. There had been rumors that he had picked bar fights with the locals and had from time to time wrecked bars. Could it have been true? The following summer, after thinking about it for almost a year, I decided to find out and then write what I found in my newspaper in Montauk. I would drive the 16 miles from Montauk to East Hampton, then go to one of the bars he went to, and ask people about him. On my way there, I began to question whether I could really do this. Would people want to talk about him? Perhaps they would pick a fight with me. I was, after all, just a college boy, and someone clearly who did not grow up in this place. I was also a mommaâ€™s boy, still living at home. What did I know (Continued on page 62)
Miracle on Main Street in Sag Harbor Last Saturday Night By Dan Rattiner
y wife Chris and I spent last Saturday at a bay beach in East Hampton, then, at 5 p.m., headed out to an opening at the Monika Olko Gallery in Sag Harbor to look at some paintings. Our plan was, after that, to have an early dinner at the American Hotel at 6 p.m., then end the evening back in East Hampton at Guild Hall to see a performance of Murray Schiscalâ€™s LUV. Neither of us had any idea of what lay ahead.
As we drove into Sag Harbor on Route 114, it was immediately apparent that this was not usual. Usual in Sag Harbor late on a Saturday meant hordes of strollers up and down Main Street with lots of traffic and lots of cars. We were prepared for that. But this was not usual. We drove around, in massive traffic jams, looking for a place to park. There wasnâ€™t any. It was, we realized, a great getting ready for the fireworks that would take place that evening. We saw people with blankets and beach chairs
and flashlights. Some were carrying coolers. It was wall to wall cars. â€œUh oh,â€? I said. We thought about what to do. Go home? We decided on this: I would drive down Main Streetâ€”we hadnâ€™t even been on Main Street yetâ€”and when we got in front of the Monika Olko Gallery, Chris would hop in and go inside. Iâ€™d go around the block, just one block, which we estimated would take 20 minutes. Weâ€™d stay in (Continued on page 64) touch by cellphone.

Pollock (Continued from previous page) about bars?
ell, it was one o’clock in the afternoon. It wasn’t likely that anybody was drunk. Yet. And maybe there wouldn’t be anybody there. In my convertible with the top down, I turned onto Springs-Fireplace Road, came to a curve in the road, then another curve in the road. Which was Pollock’s curve in the road? As I approached another one, I saw there was indeed a woods adjacent to it. I actually looked for flattened foliage and broken tree trunks. None there. And none there at the next turn. What house did Pollock live in anyway? I knew it was along here somewhere but I didn’t know where. Perhaps I could go knock on the door
and speak to his wife, Lee Krasner, now back from Paris. I could ask her how she felt about Pollock dying like that. What a joke. I’d really go to some stranger’s door and ask them how they felt about some great personal tragedy in their life? Other reporters did that. Disgusting. I would never do that. Not for my paper. I made a left on Fort Pond Boulevard and began to look for a tavern named Jungle Pete’s, which I had read somewhere was one of Pollock’s hangouts. The road here was straight but very narrow, with small fishermen’s homes on either side, set in the heavy foliage that marked that area. About a half mile down, I came to it. It was the only commercial establishment on the street. Set in, well, the Jungle. There were about 10 vehicles parked in

front of the place. All of them were trucks of one sort or another. Pickup trucks, vans, trucks with camping rigs on them, trucks with fishing poles in them. I pulled in with my tailfinned convertible, all chrome and buffed steel. I turned off the engine. Through the open windows, I could hear conversation inside, lots of people talking, sometimes at the same time, sometimes with voices raised. There was the sound of a pinball machine. A jukebox playing music. I set the brake and got out. I was very aware of how out of place this looked—a shiny new car with tail fins and the top down (so I could experience what Pollock and the girls must have experienced). And so I got back in the car and pressed the button that put the top up. It groaned, came up, and then I got out again and locked the car.
climbed the two steps to the entry door of Jungle Pete’s, hesitated, took a deep breath, and went into a smoky barroom. Immediately conversation stopped, then slowly started up again. I took a few steps forward and went to the bar and I looked around. Rough, weathered men in work shirts were drinking beer. There were a few women. I ordered a tap beer, the bartender poured it, brought it over. And people pretended not to notice me. After a fashion, I tried to strike up a conversation with the man sitting immediately to my left. “Hi.” Nothing. I tried the man on my right. “Jackson Pollock used to drink here?” I asked. “Sure did, bub,” he said, not looking at me. “I’m writing this new newspaper in Montauk,” I said, “and I was wondering what he was like.” “He was like? He was like anybody else.” There was an edge in his voice. Over at the other side of the bar, two men began talking loudly. One was getting red in the face. The bartender walked over. “All right, all right,” he said. “Some people say he drank too much,” I said. “He drank too much. We all drink too much.” He turned his stool to face me. He was about 50, his face lined from being in the sun. “Don’t care to talk about him. Or anybody else for that matter.” Down at the other end of the bar, it was clear to me that everybody was talking about everybody else for that matter. At this point, for the first time, I noticed a certain common accent to the speech in this bar. It was kind of hard and flat, sort of like a Boston accent, but faster and sometimes almost unintelligible. And there were odd words and phrases thrown in here and there. “Bub.” And “Yes, yes,” repeated twice like that. The man next to me spoke again. “He was a good man,” he said. “We all liked him. Smart. I wouldn’t want to say anything bad about him. anybody want to say anything about Jackson Pollock? good or bad?” he shouted over the din. Nobody replied. On the other side of me, the man took his beer, got up from his stool, and walked across the room. Perhaps it was deliberate, perhaps not. I’d been there long enough. I took a few more sips of my beer, noticed that I really did not like it, paid, and walked out, closing the screen door quietly behind me. Standing at my car (Continued on page 66)

No one gives you more buses to and from the Hamptons than Hampton Jitney. We run an average of fifty buses a day, and if you do the math, that makes it 350 buses a week and 18,500 buses a year. Thats a lot of buses, a lot of people, and lots of times. And we run like clockwork. Thatâ€™s what legends are made of.

But apparently, they were just a few feet too far down to do that. Also, this white car directly in front of us, was not going to let them do that. This was their spot. The clock ticked on. The red car moved forward, and I was about to move forward to the back bumper of the white car when the white car began to back up. Apparently, it needed a few more feet to let the Mercedes out. And it was there. I hadn’t yet pulled up. A few moments after that, the Mercedes did indeed back out into this open space provided.

enough room for the white car to take the spot. And here came the miracle! The white car did not do that! The white car did not want the spot! I couldn’t believe it. The white car wanted only to follow the Mercedes down Main Street. There it was. An actual diagonal parking space on Main Street in Sag Harbor on July Fourth weekend directly in front of the Monika Olko Gallery. But was it really ours? I felt fear. Was this possible? I looked at cars coming the other way up the street I was going down. Would the driver of one of them grit his teeth, cross the double yellow line and snatch the spot from me? He could. I fumbled with the steering wheel. And as the feared snatching did not happen, I moved into the space and came to a halt. We just sat there in our car, wide eyed, staring out the front windshield. The cars on the road were in complete gridlock once again. Yet we had this. It was ours. “So you don’t have to drop me off?” my wife asked. “I don’t need to drop you off,” I said. And so, we got out and strolled in to the Monika Olko Gallery hand in hand. The Miracle on Main Street, Sag Harbor.

Terror in the Hamptons Although Mace is Popular in Pocketbooks, Some Look for Alternatives
By DAVID LION Rattiner
ecently, the Sag Harbor Pharmacy has been selling purse-sized canisters of pepper spray. The product is produced by the well known brand Mace and has been flying off of the shelves according to Barry Marcus, as reported on 27east.com. Marcus is the co-owner of the Sag Harbor Pharmacy. The news is not surprising, considering how dangerous the Hamptons can be. You never know when a hedge fund guy might cut in front of you in line while getting coffee in the morning and you’ll need to mace him. We’ve all heard stories of the sheer terror that can take place while walking the dangerous beaches of the Hamptons in midday. On occasion, there is that
chance that a hoodlum will steal your bathing suit. And Heaven forbid you should be amongst the unlucky who need to break out some pepper spray on Shelter Island when some bath salt enraged deer tries to attack you. You need to be prepared out here. That’s why we here at Dan’s Papers have compiled a list of weapons that you can carry for self-defense, which are all legal and could undoubtedly save your life. Hipster Camouflage, designed by So Last Week Inc. Let’s face reality folks, nobody is going to rob or attack a hipster. Our first choice for good offense is the ultimate defense. Every criminal knows that hipsters are poor targets to rob, because, well…they are all broke and don’t
work, that’s kind of the point of being a hipster. And even though you’re in your 30s, fear not. That’s kind of the new thing these days for hipsters. So you don’t have to worry about the fully functioning anti-thief system designed by So Last Week Inc. making you look ridiculously stupid. You’ll only look a little stupid. The hipster camouflage has it all: skinny jeans, plaid shirt, rimmed eyeglasses; it even comes with a crappy bicycle if you buy the elite package. The whole thing will only run you $799, a small price to pay for security.

A Modest Proposal Courtesy of Wolffer & the Jitney By susan saiter
o one has ever been more nervous than Billy Davis, 27, was last Saturday, as he waited on Montauk Hwy. in Sagaponack for the Hampton Jitney from East Hampton to come. He tried to relax on a sunny bench in front of the Wolffer Wine Stand. No Jitney yet. He pulled his cell phone out from his shorts pocket. No messages. Checked the time: 4 p.m. Any minute now, well, no, probably more like 4:15.

His fingers drummed the bench, he dabbed at his brow, shiny not only from the jitters but from the near-90 degree heat. He stood up and ambled inside, where the shop was already bustling with wine customers. Pacing among the cases and display bottles, he peered out into the parking lot. Back outside. Kicking pebbles in the parking lot, he’d look up to see lots of cars crunching their way in, but no familiar tall green bus. Back inside. Back outside. Finally, a text message that

she was on the bus. At long last, the Jitney rumbled into the parking lot. Now his secret plan was finally going to go into action, and Billy was going to make the speech he had been working on for three months. As people inside Wolffer crowded around the windows to get a look (some had been tipped off by Wolffer Estate Manager, Suellen Tunney, as to what was going on out there), the big bus door opened, and one sole (Continued on page 74) passenger stepped

Send the criminals running for the hills, these kids are experts at driving away just about everyone and getting what they want at the exact same time. One screaming lesson costs $200. Worth every penny. “Hand Of Sand” Manufactured by BlackSaltwater Industries Hand of Sand is a product that is extremely popular with women in the Hamptons who are looking for a self-defense weapon that is effective for evasion and escape. The product is specifically designed to temporarily blind your attacker in order for you to get away. The product comes in a small, black, plastic bag
that can easily be carried in your purse. The directions on the back read, “Break open plastic bag with fingers and take a palm-sized amount of “hand of sand” product. Proceed to throw product at attacker’s face. For more effective use, repeat as necessary.” According to the company’s website, all of the sand that is used in “hand of sand” has been specifically inspected and approved for government use. Hand of Sand retails for $58 in exclusive retailers. Pit Bull Adoption A pit bull in the Hamptons is like walking down the street with a machine gun.

Pollock (Continued from page 62) was another man, looking in the window. He stood up as he saw me coming. “Finest kine,” he said. “A real beauty. You buy this?” “My dad bought it for me. I did something good. He liked it. So he bought it for me.” “Probably get a lot of girls with this rig,” he continued. I wondered what he wanted. “Sometimes,” I said. “I live in Montauk. You from here?” “Obviously.” “Yeah.” “My dad owns the drugstore in Montauk now.” “What brings you up here?” “I run the new newspaper in the town in the summertime. People have been writing about the fifth anniversary of Pollock’s death. I’m trying to find out more about him so I can write a story.” “Well, people don’t like to talk about him.” “So it would seem.” “He got famous and all. And most of the time, he was really a very nice man. But then he’d get drunk. Pretty bad when he got drunk. Nasty. He’d break things. Then he’d pass out. So we’d take him home. Next day he’d be fine. We got used to him. I wouldn’t want you to say anything bad about him.” He paused. “Well, I will tell you one thing,” he said. He looked around to see that we were alone. “Once I went over his house looking for him. He wasn’t in the house. So I went to the studio knockin’ on the door. Jackson? Jackson? The knockin’ jus’ opened the door, all by itself. So I walked in and right away realized I’d just walked across a big painting on the floor. Filled the whole room, almost. Paint was stickin’ to my shoes. Uh-oh. The next day I told him what happened. And he said, ‘I saw it. Looked good. Worked it into the painting.’ ” “Can I write about that?” He hesitated. “No,” he said. “Okay. I won’t. I promise, I won’t.” I unlocked the car, got in, and started it up. Then I thought of one last thing. “You know the spot where Pollock crashed?” “Yeah. But you don’t really want to write about that either. People be here, strangers, tourists, all lookin’ around. Ghoulish. Nobody want that. We kinda keep to ourselves.” “Yeah.” “Drive careful,” he said. And he went inside. I didn’t write a word about Jackson Pollock for years and years.

Plovers, No. Osprey, Yes Save the Osprey, Not the Piping Plovers. We’ll Get Our Beaches Back. By Dan Rattiner
here are more than 1,900 species on the endangered list. They range from American bison down to the tiniest of insects. All of these species just stand there, noticing that there are just a few others like them around, and they quiver in the sad anticipation of their demise. Any one of these species could have been chosen by the U. S. Government as the poster child species for what we are doing to this planet. Any one of these species could have been selected to be the one that we would lavish our affections on, following up with a
broad mandate demanding their protection. One would have thought we might have raised to such an elevation the cute and cuddly Chinese Giant Panda. Or it might have been, for reasons of high drama, the Great White Shark, which is also endangered. Or it might have been the Prairie Buffalo, also on the list. But oh no. The United States, in its infinite wisdom, chose to raise to this esteemed height this awkward, boring-looking, skittery little shorebird called the Piping Plover. About 20 years ago, this country passed laws that made it a crime for which you could go to jail to upset, injure, intrude upon or cause the
death of a Piping Plover. Where Piping Plovers are, you are supposed to be not. Thus we embarked on this bizarre arrangement where we not only are required to live and let live, we are also required to move away if one of these skittery little birds gets lost and decides to set up a nest on your lawn. People speak about piping plovers in hushed tones. To even startle a piping plover is a crime. You can’t even yell at somebody and pound your fist on the table if a piping plover might be skittering about just outside your window. You never know when the Piping Plover Police will come, even in the

Top Chefs Meet, Plan Strategy for Taste of Two Forks By eric feil
eing inside the chefs’ meeting for Dan’s Taste of Two Forks is not unlike being inside the clubhouse at the All-Star Game, chefs whites replacing pinstripes on the backs of the biggest stars in the game. With the preliminary talks of tables and arrival times and other such details in the books, a cheer goes up from the gathering of top East End chefs and restaurateurs inside the Plaza Café in Southampton on this hot summer morning. Anticipation for the second annual Dan’s Taste of Two Forks on July 14 officially hits fever pitch. “It’s going to be a great night—it is a who’s who of food on the East End,” says Chef David
Diaz of Beaumarchais East Hampton, who will be joining fellow first-timers like Jeff Trujillo and Dee Muma of Dark Horse in Riverhead, and Southampton Social Club’s Scott Kampf, as part of that select company under the big tent at Sayre Park this year. “I’m looking forward to being with other chefs and restaurants in the Hamptons and seeing what they’re doing.” He need not wait. Just look around the room. There’s Keith Luce of Luce & Hawkins with a glass of vino, talking about the importance of the event’s charitable beneficiary, Have a Heart Community Trust. Sam McCleland of Beacon is over there at that table, chatting with co-owner and restaurateur David Loewenberg. The air of culinary camaraderie and creativity is palpable.
Yes, the same excitement that drew last year’s sell-out crowd of food-loving guests (we’ll try to steer clear of the term foodie for at least the next paragraph) is at work amongst the very men and women creating the dishes that will have everyone “oohing” and “aaahing” and “yummmming.” Those dishes are a big topic of conversation and expectation here this morning. Isao Yoshimura from Banzai Burger on the Napeague stretch in Amagansett, who’ll be preparing tuna as well as a vegetable roll using local produce, is excited to show people that sushi and burgers pair perfectly together (just in case you had your doubts). “Lobster is my specialty,” says 75 Main’s Victor Pastuizaca, and he promises both (Continued on page 73)

Plover (Continued from previous page) middle of the night, to haul you away. The piping plovers are so protected that for the last five years in a row the annual Fourth of July Fireworks at Main Beach in East Hampton, which before that had been held every year for more than half a century, were cancelled, not because crowds might trample or injure the piping plover birds, but because the loud noise of the fireworks going off—KABAM, WHOOSH KABOOM, WHIZZZZZZ—might hurt their little ears. That first year, a pair of piping plovers set up a nest in the dunes 50 yards to the east of Main Beach. A fenced off area was set up so you couldn’t go in there. Signs reading KEEP OUT were posted. None of this is even close to where the fireworks were to have been held. What a strange choice our government has
made. Thirty years ago, artists came to our beaches with their oils and set up easels and canvases to make these marvelous landscapes of nature. Today, they can still do that. But they have to ignore the stakes and wires and snowfences and signs that block off all human access to about half the dunes. And they have to fend off these very aggressive Piping Plovers. I submit that today, people going to the beach who were not here 30 years ago simply think that all these stakes and wires and snowfences and signs are just the way it is here. Well, it is. And it’s because of the piping plovers. I took my little dog down to the beach in East Hampton for a run the other day after 6 pm. You can do that after six. It’s sunset time. You run your dog.

Where I took my dog was to a 100-foot gap between KEEP OUT signs and wires and stakes marking the dreaded nests of the piping plovers. We were there for less than five minutes. Just two minutes after we arrived, huge swarms of piping plovers went on the attack, swooping in on us, circling around and swooping again, sometimes brushing their wings against our faces as we just stood there—forget about going for a run. After a time, we gave up and ran back toward our car—let me revise that—got chased back to our car. This is an infestation of piping plovers. There are thousands of them. Tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands. And it just increases. Every year there are more and more piping plovers. If you go out where the plovers are in the morning before nine to walk your dog, you meet up with them when they are mean and hungry. They skitter along the water’s edge looking for bugs and sea life. They skitter back up the beach when the waves come in, skitter back down the beach when the waves come out. They think you want their breakfast. You go at dusk and they think you’re after their eggs. Nice people, these birds. I’ve been told by the environmental police that patrol the beaches to keep the birds safe that they too are now pecked at and flown at by the swarms of piping plovers. I’ve seen a few policemen out there with bicycle helmets. It’s not pretty. Even five years ago and certainly 10, this was not a problem. Three weeks ago there was a news item that down at Dune Beach in Southampton Village, somebody—they did not know who but they were investigating—had crawled in under the wire and had “buried” a piping plover nest. Four eggs were smothered. The police would round up these people. Suspects would be beaten into confessions. Prison terms would be long. There was some talk about whether this was deliberate or an accident. The man who found the half buried nest said it had to have been deliberate. Who would do such a thing? The way the sand was scooped out and then folded over, well, they had considered it might have been a fox or a dog or something, but then why would they go to the trouble of “burying” the nest? And why, if they dug with their paws, were there no sprays of sand all around. No, it had to be a human, a human with a very troubled mind. They would find him. Couldn’t have been a “her.” Women would never do this sort of thing. A few days later, I read about problems in Napeague with giant Ospreys. These are stunningly beautiful birds. They are graceful and gigantic. They have wingspans of six feet and you can sometimes see them gliding majestically, floating, actually, through the air looking for fish—which they grab with their claws to bring home to their babies in their nests. It is noted that the giant Ospreys are still on the Special Concern List, and that they barely survived as a species 50 years ago when DDT was sprayed on the wetlands in these parts to kill the mosquitoes before people knew how deadly that was. Subsequently, DDT was banned. Now they use a new chemical. And the Ospreys survive, although there still are only a couple hundred of them on the East End, living high up in trees, or (Continued on page 82)

Mr. Sneiv Tries to Plan a Block Party for his Neighbors
know for a fact that there is a division between various groups of peoples of the Hamptons. If it’s not the locals vs. visitors, it’s those who want to keep the East End as it is, in opposition to those who want to see it become a smaller version of Manhattan. Discord is everywhere. There is even a disconnect between the hard working local fisherman and the Department of Environmental Conservation. I have been contemplating this situation ever since I started watching the new History Channel Mini-Series, “Hatfields & McCoys.” Anyone who doesn’t know the premise will find that it is centered around a bitter blood feud between families on the West Virginia and Kentucky borders in the year after the Civil War. I believe that some people actually enjoy conflict. “Hatfields & McCoys” was the highest rated ad supported, non-sporting cable series in the history of cable television. It averaged about 14 million viewers per episode. That is a lot of potential troublemakers in my opinion. And I bet some of them live right here in the Hamptons. Now I’m not suggesting our lack of harmony is as bad as that of the Hatfields and McCoys, but it is still present nonetheless. Do we need to wait until bullets start flying to do something about the situation? On my street there are 27 homes. Sadly, of those, I only know two of my neighbors. This does not breed a sense of community. There was a time when we could walk to the beach and leave our front doors open and our cars unlocked because we knew our neighbors would keep an eye out. Those days are long gone. So Mr. Sneiv, as always when there is a problem that needs solving, recently decided to do something about the situation. My solution would be to hold a “Sneiv Block Party.” I would host a party just for the people on my street. This would surely bring us all closer. This would also set the ball rolling for bringing unity to every street in the Hamptons. Others would follow and there would no longer be this chasm between the various classes and peoples. My first order of business was to contact the area’s premiere Party Planner. Her services are well known throughout the East End. When we met, she made it a point to inform me that she is an “Event Stylist ” and not a party planner. I thought that it was only going to go downhill from there, but when she found out that I was the famous Mr. Sneiv, of Dan’s Papers, she was very excited. It seems that she is an avid reader of the Paper and in fact, bases her post event success rating on whether or not the event ends up as a mention in the Paper. She shared my enthusiasm for bringing the people together with a block party. She inquired as to how much I was considering spending for such an event. I responded, “$10,000.” That is when I found out the difference between a Party Planner and an Event Stylist. Fifty thousand dollars would be the budget, her fee would be an additional $7,500, and I would also have to guarantee a positive review in the Paper. I was not prepared for that kind of expense, and I have zero influence at the Paper. I was just about to say “No, thanks” when she started in on the details. They included a
raised stage in the front yard, where I would be seated in a beautiful “kinglike” chair, holding a bejeweled microphone and reading excerpts of my writings from Dan’s Papers to the crowd. I reached for my checkbook! The planning continued and we had settled on all the details including theme, decorations, food, signature beverages and everything else that goes along with putting together an event of this magnitude. The date would be the second Saturday in July. The last item on the agenda was to discuss the invitations. “We don’t need invitations,” I said. “I want you to go door to door and invite people. That is what this is all about. If they are absentee, you can call them from our association telephone
list.” The Stylist was not prepared for this type of process, but agreed to it anyhow. She indicated that she would wait until the weekend, when more people were apt to be home and then start the process. Two weeks went by and I had not heard from the Stylist. I checked my account and she had cashed the check. When she finally answered the phone, she indicated that she had indeed been working on the event but needed to sit down with me and discuss what had transpired since we had first met. She suggested we meet over drinks. After the second martini, she informed me, “Mr. Sneiv, we have a problem”. She then proceeded to pull out a folder that had 27 separate paper (Continued on page 80)

As for Plaza CafĂŠ owner and chef Douglas Gulija, he doesnâ€™t have his Danâ€™s Taste of Two Forks menu planned as he stands behind the bar, discussing the culinary community in the Hamptons. Suddenly, inspiration strikes and he comes up withâ€”while heâ€™s speakingâ€”the dish heâ€™ll be dishing out the event. â€œI got itâ€”Iâ€™m going to do seared sea scallops and roasted corn polentaâ€”write that down before I keep talking and forget it,â€? he says. He goes on to add a few other local ingredients, but weâ€™ll keep them a surprise until July 14. â€œI think people are really going to like this, and thatâ€™s the whole point, right?â€? The canâ€™t-wait-to-show-my-stuff mood is not reserved for the newcomers. Far from it. Veterans of the first Danâ€™s Taste of Two Forks last summer have a heightened sense of excitement, recalling that inaugural night with smiles and a sense of energy for what will be an even bigger event this year. Chef Robby Beaver of The Frisky Oyster in Greenport lets a knowing smile escape while reminiscing about the Oysters Friskafeller he served to great acclaim last summer, while Arthur Wolf of Smokinâ€™ Wolf BBQ & More in East Hampton recalls the success of his brisket slidersâ€” â€œPeople did love them.

Wolffer (Continued from page 65) and looking very dazed, she said, “What is going on?” Billy snatched her hand and ushered her through the wine stand and back out past the people sipping from their glasses at tables, and he hurried her back toward the rolling field of endless grapevines. In front of a row of chardonnay vines, Billy knelt down, just like they do in movies, whipped out a little box from his pocket and flipped it open. An exquisite diamond glinted in the sun. Dawn gasped, and he asked, “Will you marry me?” The tender moment could barely be heard from the tables, where the imbibers tried to focus on their crudités and rose or vin blanc and not stare, but it was pretty hard to ignore
out, a long-haired young woman in a lacy white Lily Pulitzer dress that showed off her tan, clutching her chic Chanel bag, and looking completely confused. (After all, she, Dawn Aversano, 26, had expected Billy to pick her up for their date at the Blue Parrot happy hour—instead, a Jitney had pulled up to her East Hampton home. The driver, all dressed up in a vest and a fancy shirt, had ordered her into the enormous, completely empty bus, and the thought crossed her mind that this could be some sort of a weird abduction, until the driver, Adam Piazza, assured her that her boyfriend had arranged this.) When she saw Billy, they threw their arms around each other and kissed. Then, laughing

such a romantic scenario unfolding across the clover. The ad hoc audience grew silent, waiting for the magic word, and when it was “Yes!” followed by three other magic words, “I love you,” they broke into happy applause. A champagne cork popped, and the couple strolled over to a blanket set out for them with a plate of pretty cheeses and the bubbly. Concocting a singular and relevant marriage proposal is not the easiest task in the world, maybe especially when it involves two busy commuters and the Long Island Expressway. This story began three years ago, when Billy Davis broke his routine of heading back to the city from his family’s Bridgehampton house. He liked to get back to Manhattan early to prepare for his work week in sports advertising sales, but he and his mom had been having a heartto-heart about why he wasn’t bringing home a nice girl for her to meet. Billy dated a lot, but he had a busy life, and he didn’t really have a good answer. Not that she was worried, maybe just a bit impatient. “My mother’s advice was, ‘When you’re not looking for it is when it will appear.’” Everyone knows that mom knows best, even when she does make you miss your usual Jitney. He finally hugged mom good-bye later that day and encountered a long line at the Bridgehampton Jitney stop across from Candy Kitchen. Multiple busses were needed. The one he got on was jammed. He scoped out the few empty seats. Never mind the one next to the elderly man, Billy didn’t want to disturb him. And the seat next to the large lady with her food all laid out didn’t look very appetizing. But there was one three rows back that a young woman, intent on her book, seemed nevertheless to be guarding with bags all over the place. “She was clearly a veteran Jitney rider, hoping for the elusive ‘double-seat’ trip,” Billy said. Well, too bad. She was much too beautiful to sit alone. Billy thought, “I like her stubbornness, and I like this challenge.” “Excuse me, would you mind moving your extremely large pile of stuff?” he asked as politely as one can say that. They made eye contact—“a decent start—but I wasn’t sure she was actually going to relent.” Well, she did, and he met Dawn Aversano, who worked in financial services in Manhattan. The rest is history. For three years, they rode the Jitney together, he to Bridgehampton and Amagansett, she to her family’s home in East Hampton, and as Billy tossed around the idea of marrying Dawn Aversano, he tried to also think of a unique and (Continued on page 80)

Fight the Fees. Rise Up & Don’t Go to These County Beaches By robert sforza
any local residents, beachgoers and legislators are angered over the county’s new $4 per-car parking fee at two East End beaches. Last week, the county enacted what they call a new “twilight” parking fee at Smith Point County Park in Shirley and Cupsogue Beach County Park in Westhampton Dunes, despite the disapproval of several East End legislators. Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman (I-Montauk), who has been a county legislator since November 2003, does not agree with the new charge. “I have reached out to the administration and requested that the new fee not be imposed,” Schneiderman stated in a press release. Schneiderman served two terms as East Hampton Town Supervisor and is described as having a highly effective management style. He passed four consecutive tax cuts to the citizens of East Hampton, and garnered the highest municipal bond rating in New York State. County Executive Steve Bellone introduced the new fees at the last minute, and county legislators quickly approved the new measure. There is now a $4 parking fee for persons coming to Cupsogue, Meshutt and Smith Point County beaches after 5 p.m. Due to the efforts of Schneiderman and Jim Dougherty, Shelter Island supervisor and chair of the East End Supervisors and Mayors Association, the county withdrew the fee for Meshutt Beach in Hampton Bays. Dougherty voiced his opposition to the fee by stating, “This fee is an unfair, regressive penalty imposed on the ordinary citizen,” in a press release last week. He said that the new fees fall disproportionately on the East End, and pointed out that “Many visitors and residents use the beaches after hours and it is unfortunate that only beaches in eastern Suffolk County are being targeted.” Not coincidently, all lawmakers who opposed the new fee are from districts located east of William Floyd Parkway. Many East End residents also feel the new cost is targeting eastern residents unfairly, believing the imposition of the new fees so close to July 4 was no coincidence. “East End legislators’ offices have been inundated with calls from residents who are not happy with the new fee,” informs Jakki O’Neil a spokeswoman for Schneiderman. “As of now there is no word on what will happen with this fee down the road.” County Executive Steve Bellone does not believe this new cost targets the East End unfairly, reminding residents that changes are occurring all over the county. Suffolk County is hoping to climb out of an estimated $530-million budget hole. The plan is to shave off $90,000 through Labor Day via the new parking fee. Bellone, who initiated the bill, immediately signed the resolution into law, which passed by a 12-5 vote. Dougherty believes that this dusk parking fee will have an unintended effect, hurting some local business owners. “This fee will certainly impose financial burdens on business owners who operate concessions; parking fees may deter families and young people from
The boundary of Cupsogue County Park
frequenting the beaches as much as they are used to,” he commented in the press release.
Bellone, on the other hand, doesn’t view the $4 fee as stringent or severe, but rather just another means for the county to reduce its $500 million deficit. In fact, according to the Suffolk County Parks Commissioner Greg Dawson, Bellone didn’t need legislation to enact a parking fee after 5 p.m. as daytime parking hours extend till 8 p.m. Bellone just wanted a more reasonable cost than $8 or $15 for nonresidents. “When you offer something for free, and then take it away, people are going to be upset,” Schneiderman commented in the release. Incidentally, county attendants will be collecting this fee this weekend, so twilight beachgoers beware.

On the Ferry that Connects Sag Harbor & Greenport Our captain, John Scourakis, ordered that the boat be untied from its moorings, and we were underway. We moved slowly past the breakwater, as smaller craft (natives trying to sell us their wares?) plied the untroubled water about us. Once we reached the open water, Captain Scourakis throttled up and the John Keith gathered speed. On the port side, the seaside mansions of North Haven flew past, while to the starboard the wilds of Shelter Island suggested deeper mysteries. Being, as we are, people who prefer solid ground beneath our feet to the uncertainties of seafaring, not to mention the fact that we can’t afford a boat, my wife and I had never seen our surrounding area from the water. Imagine our surprise to find the shore so riddled with inlets and slender spits of land jutting out! One day, I might have to look at a map to confirm what my eyes were telling me. And then, just like that, we arrived in Greenport. A journey that I had estimated would take between two to three days had, in fact, taken only 45 minutes. Captain Scourakis throttled down and carefully maneuvered the John Keith to dock at Mitchell Park. After the boat was safely tied to the moorings, the Captain gave the all clear to disembark, but we hesitated. Were we temporarily overcome by our fears of this foreign place, with its strange habits and customs? Or was it just that the last trip back to Sag Harbor was leaving in 15 minutes, and we couldn’t rely on getting a drink at Claudio’s quickly enough? In the end, we did de-boat (no dignitaries were there to receive us, in case you were wondering), and in the brief time we had managed to wrap ourselves around two slices of cold pizza.

y wife and I are now officially pioneers! On Thursday, June 28, the Peconic Water Jitney made its inaugural voyage between Sag Harbor and Greenport, and that very evening we became among the first to take the trip. We embarked from Sag Harbor’s Long Wharf aboard the John Keith, a smooth gliding catamaran, at 7 p.m. Climbing topside to better survey the ship’s course, we felt the salty sea breeze whipping through our hair, and had that giddy feeling that you get when you start an adventure. I wanted to light my pipe, but there was a no smoking sign. Also, I don’t have a pipe.

hus nourished, we climbed back aboard the John Keith, which was promptly underway at 8 p.m. for the sunset return trip to dear old Sag. This time, the wife and I stayed below decks, having been made somewhat weary by the winds on our journey over. Here the noise of the engines is more present, but the enclosed space is air-conditioned and the seats comfortably padded. Future adventurers might arrange to stay longer in Greenport, and they will probably be looking for things to occupy their time. Not having a car with you has its advantages and disadvantages. Chief advantage: you can drink. Chief disadvantage: you don’t have a car to drive to the fabulous wineries that offer the best drinking. Peconic Water Jitney is aware of this conundrum, and they are working to set up connections with shuttle services that will whisk passengers to nearby vineyards. They are also in talks to arrange for wine tastings onboard the boat itself. Hmmm…I think I hear the call of the sea! The Peconic Water Jitney is running now through the end of the summer, and you can visit them online at www.peconicjitney.com for schedules and to make reservations, which are recommended. The fare is $11 one way, $20 for round trip.

Mayor Epley Will Soon Need to Fill a Big Spot on Jobs Lane By robert sforza
drive down Jobs Lane in lovely Southampton Village will soon look quite different. The old Rogers Memorial Library on the corner of Jobs Lane and Main Street will shortly become vacant. Meanwhile, next door, they are soon going to be building an open-air, tentlike pavilion toward the back of the Parrish Art Museum property. The pavilion should be completed by summer 2013. These are the latest of changes coming to the historic village. Construction on the new semi-permanent pavilion cannot begin until the Parrish Art Museum vacates the grounds and moves to its new location in Water Mill, which it is set to do by year’s end. But Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley isn’t waiting till then to make plans for the property’s future.
“The hardest thing is trying to protect the historic aspects of the Village...while planning for the future,” says Mayor Epley. “What the village is trying to do—the master plan—is to set zoning requirements and architectural guidelines in place to preserve the historic culture of Southampton Village,” said Epley in a phone interview last week. Mayor Epley acknowledges the magnitude of losing the Parrish Art Museum, which has been a focal point in the village for over a century. “We have a hole now in the middle of Southampton Village, and it is my job to fill it. The property cannot stay dormant,” says Epley. Twelve years ago, the Parrish Art Museum bought the now 119-year-old library building from the Rogers Memorial Library, which left its location on Jobs Lane to relocate to its current building on Windmill Lane. Since Epley became mayor seven years ago, he has tried his best to keep the Parrish Art Museum on Jobs Lane. But in July 2010, the Parrish broke ground on its new Water Mill location. “I was left with no choice,” comments Epley. “I offered them the best offer I could to keep them there, and now they’re gone.” Meanwhile, Jonathan S. Sobel of Sagaponack and Manhattan recently purchased the building at 11 Jobs Lane (the original home of the Rogers Memorial Library) for $2.87 million with a plan to restore it. But the building does not yet have a future tenant. “The village cannot afford to have a vacant building,” says Epley, who understands the difficult undertaking of restoring the building, which hasn’t been restored since the 1970s. The new pavilion, which will help fill the void at 25 Jobs Lane, will ease Southampton Village’s latest transition. Mayor Epley believes the openair pavilion will create a new cultural hot spot and keep foot traffic in the village buzzing. The soon-to-be vacated art museum building will be converted into a new Southampton Center for the Arts. “We have to be proactive, not all change is bad,” informs Epley. “There’s change that develops new opportunities.”

The pavilion will not just be a summer attraction. Plans for the new exhibition area include an ice skating rink in the winter as well as the Farmers Market on Sunday mornings. “25 Jobs Lane is going to be a more actively used facility. It is an invaluable resource for Southampton Village,” said Epley. With an increasing number of vacant windows lining Jobs Lane, Epley is trying different measures to keep the historic village thriving. “We are trying new ways to attract people, especially now since mom and pop stores can’t afford the rent,” says the mayor. “The hardest thing is trying to protect the historic aspects of the Village of Southampton while planning for the future,” reflects Epley.

appropriate place to propose. He came up with an idea, a plan to whisk her away in a romantic manner, not on a white horse, not in a pumpkinturned-carriage, but on a Hampton Jitney.
cut outs of houses in it. Each house had an address and a name that corresponded with that address. On the back of each paper cut out was her handwritten notes: House 122: Declined. Husband is a banker on Wall Street. Wonâ€™t attend any public functions until after Occupy Wall Street is over. House 124: Declined. Is in a legal dispute over trees that are growing into yard of House 126. House 126. Declined. Wonâ€™t take a chance of that â€œBastard next door showing up.â€? House 119: Declined. States the neighbors donâ€™t like them because their dog barks on occasion. Dog tried to bite me while at the door. House 128: Declined. Doesnâ€™t like Mr. Sneiv and thinks his writing is nothing more than â€œdribble.â€? House 121: Declined. Is too embarrassed to attend because their son was recently arrested for stealing canoe from House 123. House 123: Declined. Doesnâ€™t want to socialize with a â€œstreet of thieves.â€? House 125: Declined. Rents his house out through a realtor in summer months. Has no idea who will be there that specific week. House 127: Declined. Maid answered doorâ€” No Speak English. House 129: Declined. Would reconsider if Beyonce was going to be performing? House 131: Declined: Celebrity owner in drug and alcohol treatment. No discharge date set. House 133: Mr. Sneivâ€™s House. Your girlfriend answered the door. Said she did not want to be part of another one of your crazy ideas. As I read the notes on the back of each
ood idea, he thought, anything but a clichĂŠâ€” but a jam-packed bus full of tired type A New Yorkers? Shouldnâ€™t the transportation be one thing, the setting another? He wrote a letter to Geoffrey Lynch, president of the Hampton Jitney, asking if he would be a co-conspirator. Lynch happily agreed. His plan solidified. â€œI would make it so Dawn would head out to East Hampton by herself and stay with her family on a Friday night this summer. I would say I have to work late and would meet her on Saturday evening. On the Saturday, after seemingly arriving in Bridgehampton on the Jitney, I would tell Dawn that I would drive and pick her up at her East Hampton house to go to dinner. She will be shocked and surprised when a Hampton Jitney rolls in. The Jitney Captain will get out, say her name, and invite her on to the bus saying that sheâ€™s been requested. Dawn will walk onto the bus and take a seatâ€Śexcited and curiousâ€Śand alone. The Jitney wonâ€™t go very far. It will just take Dawn to the Wolffer Wine Stand on Route 27. When Dawn gets out at the vineyard, I will be there to take her hand, walk her to a scenic area, and ask her to marry me. And voila, end of the story of love that began on the Long Island Expressway. Or actually, this is just Chapter One, because an engagement is just a beginning.

Block parties are so rockinâ€™!
paper house, there was not a single person that accepted the invitation to the Sneiv Block Party. Everyone had some kind of excuse as to why they could not or would not attend. So it is with heavy heart that I concede that I have been defeated by the unfortunate fact that, just like with the Hatfields and McCoys, people are not desirous of â€œmaking peace.â€? I postulate that the only time we truly come together as a people is when there is some type of disaster or national emergency. Then people unite and rally around the cause. Maybe it will take some tall ships sailing into the harbor with cannons aimed at our homes? Or perhaps the threat of a Category 5 hurricane striking this summer? Donâ€™t feel sorry for me. I can afford the $57,500 loss I have incurred for the failed Sniev Block Party. As for all the ungrateful people on my street, please be advised that Mr. Sneiv is erecting a five foot high electric fence all the way around his property and placing bright orange no trespassing signs on every other tree. Keep Out.
