Stickers as shown above have begun appearing in the windows of some nightclubs in Montauk. Why they would target Dan’s Papers, or, in particular, me, I don’t know. What do they have against us? This is the most flagrant violation of civil rights ever, since the two of us represent the smallest minority imaginable in America. I think it’s against the law. On Sunday, an article about the stickers appeared in the New York Times. According to the Times, this sticker is not to keep me out, but to keep “Hipsters,” identically dressed counterculture twentysomethings who wear, among other things, a hat like mine, out. So this is not about Dan’s Papers. We’ll need a notarized letter informing us of that.

East End Tick & Mosquito Control on

Week of August 11-17, 2012 Riders this past week: 20,412 Rider miles this past week: 199,998 DOWN IN THE TUBE Regis and Joy Philbin were spotted on the subway heading from Shinnecock to Southampton last Thursday. Wilbur and Hillary Ross were on the same train at the same time, though a day later. HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for Hampton Subway to issue its annual advisory about what to do if a Hurricane strikes the Hamptons. The advice is stay out of the subway. If you are in the subway when a hurricane hits, exit immediately, using one of the umbrellas now in place in all the umbrella bins by the escalators. You may return them later. If you cannot get out of the subway when the siren sounds, just stand in a door frame and brace yourself on it with your arms and legs until the danger passes. This advisory has been sent to you at the request of our business attorneys Sneakin, Katchum and Sue, who are also hereby informing you that by reading this you are also agreeing that you have now indemnified Hampton Subway and its executives from any damages that might occur to you or your person in the Hampton Subway while trying to deal with a hurricane situation, which you freely acknowledge at this time to be hereby considered an Act of God. Run for Your Lives!! HONORING THE OLYMPICS Hampton Subway is saluting the Olympic Games

by hanging a flag of a participating nation on the ticket booth on each platform every morning. These flags will be removed and replaced with a flag of a not yet hung nation every day at 9 a.m. without fanfare, until either we run out of flags, run out of nations, or run out of the days that the Olympics are to take place, which we think is next Thursday. STRANGE REQUEST We often allow weddings to be held on the platforms of our subway system. There have been so many recently that we have not been able to keep up in telling you about them. They are between men and women, women and women, men and men and women and men or whatever. We celebrate them all. Anybody interested in getting married on our platforms is welcome to contact Hampton Subway in our offices in Hampton Bays. Speak to Gladys, the secretary there who personally has been married five times on the subway, a record we think, and therefore, knows of what she speaks. NO CAMPAIGNING We would like to remind everyone that there is absolutely no political campaigning on the subway system and that includes no singing songs about a particular candidate even if the song is one everybody knows except the words have been changed a little. THE G TRAIN Straphangers recently took an Internet poll and voted the G Train to be the most efficient, well kept and on time train line on the Hampton Subway System. There is no G Train and the management of Hampton Subway doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think

Theft Five employees of a chain retail store in Bridgehampton were arrested for stealing. All five were caught taking about $1,000 in merchandise from the store. They were arrested, fired and are now without jobs, sort of caught between a rock and a hard place. Crime doesn’t pay, but neither does minimum wage these days. Pot and Heroin A man was arrested after he decided to smoke pot in the restroom of a gas station in Southampton, and it came to the attention of a police officer. When the man was questioned, he admitted to having heroin on his person. I don’t know about you, but these days, hard drugs are just out there more than they should be. Heroin wasn’t something that was common 10 years ago. WAKE UP!

Hurricane Alert

Dan’s Papers Advises All Citizens What to do if a Hurricane Comes By Dan Rattiner


he peak of the official hurricane season here on eastern Long Island extends from August 15 to September 30, and during that time the experts at the weather service say that more than 10 hurricanes, at least two of them monsters, should come roaring up the Atlantic coast. There is a high likelihood that some of them will hit Long Island full force shattering trees, knocking down power lines, imploding houses, breaching the dunes and flooding the downtowns. So you have to watch out. Here are some of the things you can do to survive a hurricane. 1. Make sure that the four hurricane bolts inside the attic of your house are in good order. These bolts, with their attached hooks and steel wire, extend through the roof of your home and go straight down inside the walls of your house to concrete footings below your basement, to keep your house from blowing off its foundations by winds of up to 300 miles an hour. They’ve been required by law in all new construction since the Hurricane of 1938. And you cannot miss them because the hook part is painted bright orange.

New @


re a t i C

Check these hurricane bolts for rust or any other signs of deterioration and have them repaired or replaced if necessary. Most important is to check the steel wire. It should make a twanging sound around middle C when plucked. If they are too loose, tighten them by twisting the super screws a foot down from the bolt hook. If you cannot move the super screws, get a long screwdriver and place it through the slot and using that leverage, turn them. Don’t over tighten. If you do, and you find they are now too taut to twang, call a carpenter or handyman to loosen them. 2. Make sure you have plenty of flashlights and a good supply of batteries for them in the event the power fails. 3. As you may know, the East End is famous for its “human chain” of teenagers who run down to the docks in our villages at the start of a hurricane to stand on all the boats, holding hands with one another to keep any of the boats from flying off, or at least, if one boat goes then they all go. Make sure your teenager has his Human Chain Card, which is available at all Chamber of Commerce offices in the area. Teenagers must be at least 14 years of age, be in good health, and (Continued on next page)

Storm (Continued from previous page) complete the one-hour course offered by the Human Chain Society. All teenagers must keep their Human Chain Card on their person at all times and produce it when asked by the authorities. They must also report to the nearest firehouse upon the sounding of the signal, three short bursts and three long bursts, followed by three faster short bursts on the noon whistle (the Morse code signal for distress) in every community. 4. Years ago, weather reporting was much more primitive than it is today, and often hurricanes hit the area with little more than five or 10 minutes notice. Today, of course, hurricanes are tracked hourly on most TV and radio channels. Be sure you have available a portable radio that operates on batteries during this time. Regular TVs and radios won’t work with the power off, of course. 5. You might want to consider selling your house and purchasing a new one in one of the communities that has its own private power generating system. These homes are more expensive, of course, and that is why. Look into homes for sale around Lake Agawam in Southampton and around Georgica Pond in East Hampton. Both of these communities have recently built underground nuclear power plants that attach by wires to all the houses hooked up to it. It’s something to think about.

6. Stock up on plenty of canned food in the pantry. Make sure you have a can opener. Nothing is worse than sitting in your house in the dark trying to open a can of beans by stabbing it with a fork. 7. Unlike the teenage “Human Chain’” program, which is mandatory, you really ought to consider entering your dog, if you have one, in the volunteer “dog alert’” program. “Dog Alert” is a privately funded organization which will test your dog to see if he will howl in anticipation of a soon to arrive hurricane. If he does, he will be issued a “Dog Alert” dog tag to hang on his collar informing people that he is a participant in the “dog alert” program. The owner of the dog will be provided with a beeper that must be carried at all time that is both a GPS system and an alarm beeper. In the event you hear the beeper, go to your dog’s side and stay there. Computers will track the location of all the dogs in the “dog alert” program, and if there are parts of town where there are no dogs participating, you may be telephoned and asked to transport your dog to that area to fill in the gaps during the upcoming arrival of the hurricane. 8. Check that you have adequate rain gear for everyone in the house and if there is not enough, purchase a few of those folding raincoats that fit into a bag, enough of them to make up the shortfall.

9. All windows must be boarded up with plywood in anticipation of the arrival of a hurricane. Otherwise, windows shatter and we don’t want that. This year there is a new alternative being offered which is the Batman Window Shutdown system. At the press of a button on a remote control steel cladding slides into place in a circular camera shutter pattern to protect your precious windows. It’s expensive, but worth it. Call 1-906-555-5421. Someone will call you back. 10. You can never have too many candles or matches in the house before a hurricane. Power is out, sometimes, for months and months. 11. This year, for the first time, a law has been passed that as soon as it can be determined that a hurricane is going to strike the area, all trees more than 100 years old and/or 100 feet high are to be taken down in order to prevent them from falling on nearby buildings. As you hear the sound of chainsaws just before the arrival of a new hurricane, rest assured. The town is protecting you. 12. Fill your bathtubs with water just prior to the arrival of a hurricane. You will be using it as drinking water unless, of course, a really stupid member of your family decides that someone has been really nice by drawing this wonderful bath for them and then climbs in to get clean. 13.

Werewolf Hunt The Road I Named, What it Was Before and What Has Become of It By Dan Rattiner


’ve been going around this summer in the Hamptons reading chapters of my memoir STILL IN THE HAMPTONS that just came out. Each chapter is about a different person or place or encounter. So I find myself in fields, on street corners, in the woods—places like that. The readings are free. I’ve had as many as 30 people show up to them. And as few as two. This past Saturday I read a chapter out in front of the big white Coast Guard Station in Montauk on Star Island. The chapter was about Carl Darenberg and his successful attempt to

haul what was then the Napeague Coast Guard Station to it’s present spot ten miles away on Star Island in Montauk. He didn’t haul it over the roads. He slid it across the dunes to a barge beached on the sand at Napeague Harbor, put it on the barge and tried to haul it through Gardiner’s Bay with his fishing boat. The fact that we were standing in Montauk in front of it affirmed that the project was a success. What was not apparent were the details. It almost became a disaster. The wind sprang up. The barge began sailing out into the Atlantic. It’s a long wonderful story and about 20 people enjoyed the telling of it there.

A second reading on Sunday in the Deerfield section of Water Mill was a whole other story. The chapter was called “Werewolf Path.” Around 1970, I had laboriously created a road map of the Hamptons that, supported by advertising, could be had for free. I gave out about 20,000 of them a year. In drawing this map, using other maps as guides, I had found that many roads were just dotted lines without names. Other roads had names, but they were historic and very complicated names. It was hard to fit Eli Brook to Northwest Harbor Road, or Highway Behind the Pond or Three Mile (Continued on next page)

If You’re Going to Cheat, Pick the Right Sport By Dan Rattiner


wo Chinese badminton doubles players were kicked out of the Olympic games for cheating last Tuesday. Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang, playing doubles for China, just couldn’t stop hitting the shuttlecock into the net, hitting it too far, not chasing the shuttlecock when it went off to the right or left, hitting it out of bounds. The audience booed them when the game ended. They’d lost to South Korea in straight sets, 21-14 Clocks_Layout and 21-11. 1And the 9:44 next Dan's Banner 5/18/12 AMmorning, Page 1

they were called before the Badminton World Federation and disqualified for “not using one’s best efforts to win a match.” After that, the International Olympics Committee met and said they would honor the disqualification. And after that, the Chinese Olympic Team announced it was opening an investigation. There was also a ruling at that time that those who had bought tickets to watch this important game would not have their money refunded. Buyer beware was the prevailing official Olympic thinking.

I think at one time or another, all of us have played badminton. It’s not easy to cheat at it and get away with it. It’s not like boxing where almost nobody would know if you cheated or not. In boxing, all you’d have to do is lower your guard just an inch for a second and you’d get clocked. Who would know? And it’s not like baseball where the pitch whizzes in at 95 miles an hour and batters, even the best of them, get fooled by it and lunge wildly at it, missing by a foot. How can you tell the difference between trying and not trying in (Continued on page 44)

Hunt (Continued from previous page) Harbor Hog Creek Road onto my map—but I did manage it. As for the dotted line roads, I thought—who names the roads? And then I thought, why don’t I name them? And so I did. I named one Lois Lane, another Wandering Cow’s Journey, another Uncle Ed’s Romp and another Werewolf Path. None of these names appeared in other maps published the following year. But then, a few years later, one of them that I had named did: Werewolf Path. It was a quarter mile road that connected Little Noyac Path with Noyac Path. So the chapter I wrote about this explained the circumstances of how this had happened and how I proudly thought this perhaps the most meaningful accomplishment in my life, creating the name of a place on a map for ever and ever.

“Werewolf Path?” “Yup. There’s quite a story about a Werewolf who lived there once.” My reading, of course, would take place at the corner of Little Noyac Path and Werewolf Path right under the Werewolf Path sign. But on Sunday morning at 8 a.m., when I checked the location of Werewolf Path on the GPS on my iPhone, I discovered that it did connect up at Noyac Path, but it no longer reached Little Noyac Path where I had years ago seen it before. It dead ended before it got there. Thus, with about half an hour to spare before the reading, I drove up there to put up a sign at Little Noyac Path letting people know that they’d not find Werewolf Path there. They’d have to drive about a quarter mile to get to the

other side of it. Boy was I in for a surprise. I did find two women in a car at Little Noyac Path there for the reading wondering what happened to Werewolf Path. There seemed to be a woods where Werewolf Path was supposed to be. So I put up my sign on a tree and told them they’d have to drive around to the other side. They asked if they could follow me there. I said sure. But this brought more surprises. Halfway around, the road turned to two ruts of dirt going through a field. We bounced along going through, only to wind up, regardless of what it said on my cellphone GPS, at the corner of what was supposed to be Werewolf Path and Noyac Path, but was instead in fact Old Sag Harbor Road and Noyac Path. There was a sign reading Old Sag Harbor Road. And there was no doubt they were the same road. Somebody had changed my name of it. What a stunning discovery. I did the reading anyway, signed a few copies of the book to those attending, and then when it was over, said my goodbyes and drove down to the dead end of “Old Sag Harbor Road” halfway back to Little Noyac Path to see what I could see. At the dead end, the road continued on, but now as the entry driveway to a private home. A metal gate was shut and locked across the road. There was an intercom on a stand next to the gate where you could call in to whatever house was in there. There were no trespassing signs, no horsebackriding signs, a private property sign. Surprisingly there was a wooden sign with the first and last name of a man whose home it was in there. I copied down the name and asked Information for this man’s phone number, hoping that I could call him and learn what had happened. But the operator told me it was a private listing. So that was that. This had been (Continued on page 58)

Artist-Writers The Celebrity Packed 64 Year Old Annual Softball Game is August 18 By DaVID LION Rattiner


or about seven years now, I’ve been participating in the Artist’s & Writers Celebrity Softball game that takes place in East Hampton every August. It is a fun affair, but it is also kind of sad, because the Artists &. Writers softball game two weeks before Labor Day, signals the coming end of the summer. My dad has been umpiring this game for as long as I can remember, every year I get to shake hands with Alec Baldwin and re-introduce myself as Dan Rattiner’s son, and every year I get to ride the bench nearly the entire time

while talking with the other writers who kind of suck at playing softball but like being there. You have to pay your dues to play in the game, so I guess someday I will be there more than I am now which is once at bat every few years. This year, the game takes place on August 18. The location of the game is where it has always been, which is the Herrick Park softball field in East Hampton. For this one day, the softball field that for the most part nobody uses except grade school kids, becomes one of the most popular places to be in the Hamptons. Snapple is a huge sponsor of the event as well as HBO and Dan’s Papers. People from all over

show up, and there are places to buy hot dogs, people bring their families and their dogs and sit down on lawn chairs to enjoy the game. What’s crazy about this game is that it gets competitive, and this is not make believe theatrics. It’s also impressive how well a lot of these guys play softball. This year the Artists have announced that Mark Feuerstein of the hit television show “Royal Pains” will be playing for the Artists. The Artists’ captain, Leif Hope, made the announcement on the game’s Facebook page. The roster for the game is very impressive this year, and includes (Continued on page 46)

Health Care Solution: Get Vets Involved By mr. sneiv


know two things: There is a Health Care Crisis in America and we are all part of the Animal Kingdom. If we can all agree on this then I believe Mr. Sneiv can help reduce the overall cost of healthcare in America. My pilot program will take place in the Hamptons. Once it has been proofed, the East End will be known as more than just a great place to live and play. It will be known as the

birthplace revolutionizing the way we deliver healthcare in America. Let me elaborate. In May, I had a mole removed at my regular physicians office. The total cost of the bill for the minor surgery and follow-up was $1,854. Shortly thereafter my vet in Southampton removed a cyst from my Australian Kelpie’s underbelly and the cost was a mere $348. Why the disparity in costs? A mole and a cyst are very similar and require about the same amount of time for removal. These events got me thinking. Why is it that a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

(DVM) can’t offer their services to pet owners? In fact, in some ways, a DVM has to be more skilled than a regular Doctor of Medicine (MD). Their patients can’t specifically communicate their area of discomfort and thus assessment and diagnosis skills have to be heightened. Veterinarians also have to be versatile. All humans are pretty much made the same but a DVM may be treating animals that range from two legs to four legs or even no legs. Their patients may fit in a teacup or weigh over a ton. So yes, I have a lot (Continued on page 46)

Badminton (Continued from page 41) those circumstances? It’s also not like football where you can slam into an opponent a little less hard than you might otherwise so a runner scores a touchdown. Who would notice? And it’s not like basketball where, just by shifting your focus an eighth of an inch, you can make a three point attempt at the buzzer bounce off the rim instead of going through swish. Game over. Indeed, many of us have tried to cheat at badminton, deliberately, when we play small children. Who has not seen a father deliberately unable to get to the shuttlecock when it’s hit from the other side by his 9 year old son. “Oooh, can’t get it. Your point.” Everybody smiles. The son jumps up and

down. They’ve got a lot of weird sports at the Olympics. Curling is one. Taekwondo is another. And badminton is a third. I watched the action at an Olympic badminton match on TV the other night. The shuttlecock goes back and forth, back and forth, back and Shuttlecock forth. It’s pretty easy to see how all these people really good at it were really good at it. If they suddenly got really bad at it, it would stand out like a sore thumb. I think you can divide Olympic sports into these two categories—one where it’s a bad idea to cheat and another where it’s a good idea if the money is right or the outcome gains you an


advantage. Here’s an example of some odd sport where you wouldn’t want to cheat. Let’s say that, things being what they are, door slamming was an Olympic sport. You’d have these big muscular athletes who could slam the door really loud. Then you’d have less muscular athletes who slammed doors not so loud. If everybody paid good money to go see the world champion door slammer, and when they got there he just slammed it a lot softer than he was famous for, everybody would know right away. And they’d boo and shout obscenities at him and wave their arms. That’s why I think it a mistake to try to cheat at badminton. And this reminds me of another story. Some time ago, a lawyer friend of mine was just starting out with a large New York City law firm. After he’d been there about three months, he announced that, because he had won a spot on the United States Olympic team, he’d have to take a leave of absence so he could compete in the Games, which were being held that year in Mexico City. Soon, his colleagues could see him on TV at the opening ceremony, walking in with his other team members, smiling and waving to the crowd. He was wearing a white shirt and pants and had on a straw hat, which was the uniform for all the American athletes that year at the opening ceremonies. What had happened was this. He and some of his friends, drinking at a bar in Manhattan one evening the year before, were talking about the upcoming Olympic games in Mexico, when one of them said, gee, they’ve got all these new sports I have an idea. His idea was that they would find one of these new sports that nobody in America played, form a “team,” and then petition the U.S. Olympic Committee to allow them to play in it. There were six of them up for this. They did a little research and found that one of these new sports was Kara, a sort of Mexican paddle ball, put into the games probably at the request of the Mexicans. Making inquiries, they learned America was not fielding a team for it. Aha. They formed a corporation (they were lawyers), named themselves the New York Sombreros, and filled out an application to represent America. Four would play. Two would be alternates if the four got injured or something. Then they read up on the rules of Kara, had themselves photographed in matching shorts and shirts with the name NY Sombreros on it, and, on the last day you could apply to the U. S. Olympic team, faxed in the application. Much of what turned out to be a one week trip to Mexico City that year involved a lot of waiting around watching the other sports and then playing one match, against Ecuador, which they lost, 21-0. Then they went home. Cheating? Nobody in the crowd knew enough about the game to think about it one way or another. That Ecuador team was really something though. And no, my friend told me, they hadn’t cheated. They tried their damndest. They just couldn’t get a point. You could look it up.

Vets (Continued from page 43) of respect for veterinarians and in fact, I hold them in higher esteem than MDs. I love my dogs like they were my children. I trust them to my vet. So why wouldn’t I let my veterinarian treat me if I was feeling ill? Eureka! DVMs should be able to treat people as well as their pets. If they can diagnose and treat a primate, why not a human? If they can set the broken leg of a dog, why not a child? Vet’s can diagnose a dog with rabies but can’t treat a person with rabies? That is just crazy. If DVMs were allowed to treat humans, it would help solve the Healthcare Crises. If you are already at the vet’s for your pet, why not have the DVM give you a check up at the same time? You are already in the exam room with your pet anyhow so the additional cost will

be minimal. Vet Assistants make less than Registered Nurses so that adds to the reduced costs as well. “Dr. Michaels, you have a Golden Retriever that has been limping and a plumber with flu symptoms in exam room two.” Most important, vets charge far less than MDs. The result: SAVINGS. Human patients should welcome the idea. I have personally found that the receptionists at the vets are far nicer and more compassionate than at a regular doctors offices. My personal physician has never kissed me but my vet routinely kisses my dogs on the head and scratches them on their backs as well. And vets are not prejudiced or judgmental. They treat a Chihuahua named Bailey with the same amount

of compassion and care as an American Bulldog named Butkus. Black Labs, Yellow Labs, Irish Setters…skin color doesn’t matter to the vet. Euthanasia and assisted suicide will not be an issue under my plan. Vets are already allowed to end the lives of their patients, if it is determined that they are lacking a quality of life. So if you take your 15-year-old Labrador and your 98-year-old grandmother to the vet at the same time, they can both be put down without you or the DVM having to face criminal charges. This will also eliminate what could have amounted to some very hefty hospital or nursing home charges. How come neither one of the Presidential candidates have thought of this? They both claim to love animals and to be concerned about Health Care in America. I have even come up with a slogan for my vet, “No animal too big-No animal too small-Pets and Humans-We treat them all.”

Oh and of course, there is right fielder Alec Baldwin. The Artists & Writers Celebrity Softball Game benefits four worthy charities: East End Hospice, East Hampton Day Care Learning Center, Phoenix House of Long Island and the Retreat. The game began as a summer picnic in 1948 and has since grown into one of the most popular things to do in the Hamptons. It’s just so much freaking fun to be down there and watching some softball under the summer sun. Not only is it a thing in the Hamptons that anybody can do, (you don’t have to buy a $500 a plate ticket in order to see the game) but you really get a timeless sense of what the Hamptons is all about. I’ve been going to this game since I can remember, and it really hasn’t changed much. The arguments still take place, the competition is still impressively fierce and my dad always ends up making at least one controversial call as umpire. We’ll see you all there. We can’t wait and GO WRITERS!

Rooster Shouts Out The Days of Chickens and Eggs and Roosters and Hens are Over? By Dan Rattiner


et me tell you about the noise. It starts off softly far up Three Mile Harbor Road to the north of my house, a quiet rhythmic sound that I can’t quite make out. But then it gets louder. Finally, it bursts out into the open where I can see this situation. It’s a big black Lab, his head sticking out of the window of a car, barking, barking, barking and barking, What a ruckus this all makes as the car, dog and driver pass my house at 40 miles an hour. All other activity at my house stops. And then, the car has zipped by and the barking gets softer and softer. The driver is heading toward town. This happens twice a day, five days a week. He heads south at 8:15 every morning Monday through Friday, and then he goes by heading north at 4:15 every afternoon Monday through Friday.

I think this fellow works either for the town government, or in construction. These are the only two professions that keep to hours where you get to work at 8 and leave work at 4 out here. I also think this man must really love his dog. I see him sitting there in his car, one hand on the wheel, one elbow out the window. Is this weird, or what? he thinks. I mention this calamity that goes by my house twice every weekday only because, at the present time, the East Hampton Town Board is under fire for allowing barnyard animals to disturb the rural neighborhood up here in Springs. It’s specifically about roosters, because neighboring Sag Harbor Village recently passed a law banning roosters there. It appears this has led to an all out anti-rooster blitzkrieg on the town board. Reporters attending the town meeting, for The East Hampton Star (quoting Kenney,

Baumel, Wilkinson, Quigley and Wiggins) and The Independent (quoting Kenney, McNally and Baumel) filed stories about this dust-up. “The rooster crows all day, starting at three in the morning,” said Constance Kenney, a local citizen of this community. “Please tell me if the area we are in is designated as farmland.” Guy Wiggins, who lives near Spring Close Highway, said that he paid a neighbor $500 to put a rooster somewhere farther from his property. But “in the spring when I came back, the rooster was back in its original habitat next to our house.” Grace Baumel said that there’s a rooster near her home that crows at 3:30 a.m., 5:30 and then 6:30 a.m. in the morning, and then at 3:30 and 4:30 in the afternoon. “I don’t know if it’s blind. I don’t know if it realizes the sun is up. But I’ve had it.” Constance Kenney said (Continued on page 50)

Going to Greenport and Sag Harbor, Hi-ho! By Alexandra andreassen


ell, that flash mob I suggested in an earlier article for the Peconic Bay Water Jitney really worked! Whether due to that or just good ol’ fashioned word-of-mouth, ridership on the ferry has gone up since its beginnings in late June. The service is run by the Hampton Jitney company and transports passengers between Sag Harbor and Greenport. Originally, Hampton Jitney President Geoffrey Lynch hoped for an average of 300 riders per day, which would make it a feasible venture in the long run. While they have not quite achieved that number, ridership has steadily grown from the 175 per day reached in early- to midJuly, some days surpassing 300 riders. “Slowly

and steadily, our ridership keeps increasing,” confirmed Jim Ryan, the general manager of the ferry. “We have been running at almost-capacity on weekends.” Ryan mentioned that they have only been advertising for two weeks, which has already shown results. Probably even more of the increase is due to satisfied customers looking to spread the word about this valuable business. Initially, some members of the community voiced concerns that the Water Jitney would cause traffic and parking problems in Sag Harbor. “It hasn’t caused the catastrophic traffic jams and parking congestion,” Ryan said. This is true for Greenport as well. A shuttle service, which allows passengers to park in local school parking lots, has circumvented

this. Nevertheless, Ryan noted that the shuttle is underutilized, showing that the ferry does not create these kinds of issues. Despite concerns such as these, the Water Jitney does indeed seem to be a hit. “According to passenger surveys,” The Sag Harbor Express reported, “the ferry service is enjoyed by most who take it, although many have begun requesting snacks and beverages, and most are reporting spending between $25 and $200 at local businesses in Sag Harbor.” Most of the riders are traveling for tourism and pleasure, which increases foot traffic through both villages. The Village of Sag Harbor is also collecting data on the ferry to evaluate the service and help them decide how (Continued on page 50)

The “Best of the Best” Competition is Here Again!


he time for Dan’s Best of the Best 2012 is here! Anyone can vote for their favorite businesses in a variety of categories to determine what really is the best of the best out here in the East End. Last year there were over 200 voting categories grouped into different sections, ranging from Food/Dining, where people can vote for the best bakery, seafood restaurant and more, to Home Services, where people can vote for the best landscaping, the best electrician, and more. Other sections included Travel and Leisure, Entertainment, and Miscellaneous. There were also separate sections for the North Fork and Montauk, which get their own Best of the Best winners. Businesses aren’t the only ones that can win a Dan’s Best of the Best award. There are also categories for individuals, such as best waiter and best waitress, as well as best local musician and local band. Dan’s also gives voters a chance to vote for the best Dan’s cover, a prize awarded to the particular artist that created it. A big portion of the North Fork section is the Wine and Wineries section; where voters don’t only choose their favorite winery but also their favorite types of wine, wine stores, and tasting rooms.

get a chance that they hadn’t had before. There will likely be a lot more people voting, since our local population grows in the summer. It will be interesting to see who will be this year’s winners, and you can help decide by submitting your nominations at, and voting for your favorite people and businesses throughout the East End.

Anyone can vote for their favorite businesses in a variety of categories to determine what really is the best of the best out here on the East End. Readers of Dan’s Papers and visitors to are able to vote for winners of the Best of the Best. Readers can nominate for each category, then vote for their favorite nominees. All voting and nominating is done on, where potential voters must create a login with their email so Dan’s can track votes and everyone has an equal chance of winning. It’s great that people have the chance to nominate their favorite businesses, Anyone can nominate for any of the categories. Then the voting begins. In this year’s Best of the Best there are probably going to be about five possible choices in each category. These choices will be taken from last year’s winners and the top nominees. Winners of Dan’s Best of the Best can be either classified as Gold or Platinum, depending on how many votes they gained, and sometimes there is even a tie. These winners will be invited to an awards ceremony, where they will be presented with a certificate of achievement. They then can display a Dan’s Papers Best of the Best emblem in their business and in all of their advertisements. This year’s Best of the Best is different than previous years because it’s beginning in the summer, rather than after Labor Day. Maybe this will put a different spin on the nominations, since the East End is certainly a different place in the summertime. Some businesses that are normally more active in the summer may

Farm (Continued from page 47) she is a weekender, but she soon expects to move here permanently when she retires next year. “I would like to enjoy my home.” “But I’m being pushed out.” It was the city people versus the local people. The town board discussed this, and it took them a few minutes to determine that these people were not talking about just one rooster, they were talking about three roosters in three different parts of town. Baumel turned to the Supervisor, and began to talk about the issue of overcrowding in Springs homes. “What is it about the term ‘illegal’…that ‘il’ means not legal.” “What is it about the term ‘U. S. Constitution’?”

Supervisor Wilkinson said. “Don’t quote me the Constitution,” Baumel said. “I taught it for 30 years. There’s nothing in the Constitution that says we can break the law.” “I take issue with you, that we are ignoring the problem,” Councilwoman Theresa Quigley said. And so it went on and on. It went on and on until Diane McNally, an East Hampton Town Trustee, got up to speak. She said she’s raised chickens and ducks and roosters for years on her property. “(Don’t) mess with my chickens,” she said. “This is a rural community. If you think I’m a fiercely independent trustee, you mess with my chickens and my rural”

And nobody had much to say after that. East Hampton Village has moved the Fourth of July fireworks to Labor Day weekend again this year, the sixth year in a row they have done that, because fireworks might scare the little piping plover bird, an endangered species which has a nest nearby. It might hurt their little ears. I recall some years ago reading about a woman who came out to the Ocean Beach Motel in Montauk and at midnight sought out the manager to complain that the crashing of the waves was keeping her up. He told her he had no control over that. She said why not? He finally agreed to move her to a room facing away from the ocean.

and discern whether or not a permanent service is viable. The rising numbers only increase the likelihood of its continuation—Ryan mentioned the possibility of buying a second boat as well. He also disclosed that it will probably remain a seasonal venture until they receive enough demand from commuters to become year-round. The ferry currently runs back and forth from Long Wharf in Sag Harbor to Mitchell Park in Greenport, making six round trips daily from Sunday to Thursday, and seven round trips every Friday and Saturday. Adult tickets cost

just $11 one-way and $20 round trip on their 53-passenger, air-conditioned vessel. A convenient and reliable service, the Water Jitney seems to benefit passengers, businesses, and the East End in general. The fact that word of its existence spread like wildfire through local networks is a testament to its value. Hopefully they will keep seeing increased ridership so they can continue to positively impact our communities.

They have formed a Village Ferry Committee, which according to the Express is “a group that is studying the potential impact, good and bad, of the ferry on Sag Harbor Village residents.” Ryan mentioned how grateful he is to the Village and the Board of Trustees for allowing the Water Jitney to happen. The boost in ridership and positive feedback is a good sign for the ferry, which is running with approval for just this summer on a trial basis by both villages. Hampton Jitney will assess its profitability after Labor Day weekend

Montauk Indian Museum to be Built By nanci e. lagarenne


he time has come to make one man’s dream a shared vision for the community. In a country where people are so anxious to find their ancestors who emigrated here, so much so that a popular television show called “Who Do You Think You Are?” has spun off the hoopla, what about right here? Here being our local ancestors. Sea captains and windmill builders aside, with all due respect for their contributions of beauty and livelihood, I speak of the original locals. The Montaukett, Shinnecock and Manhanset Indians. Lawrence Cooke knows this. He knew it when he discovered a spear point on his land in Montauk. He had bought a house on Essex Street and “finding the spear point welcomed me here,” says Cooke. What he did not know is that he would be taking on a mission to dig up the past and with it resurrect a lost culture—a people sacred to Montauk—and in the process educate many about a history most of us did not learn about in school. The Montaukett lineage goes on through our current community. A place to gather and learn and celebrate such local history is a gift we can create together. Cooke’s curiosity about the spear point and other artifacts that he came across on his quest became an obsession. He would unearth this lost people’s story, a people that founded Montauk, before it was Teddy Roosevelt’s hangout, before ranches came here and a castle was built on a hill. Cooke joined with

other people who were as interested in the Montauketts as himself, comparing notes. A plan was forming before Cooke even realized it. “We wanted a space depicting life around Fort Pond thousands of years ago. The Pond is steps away from the museum’s location.” That is Cooke today, talking about the Montauk Indian Museum, which is to be built on the land where the little cottage behind Second House sits. Full site approval has been attained. A 99-year lease with East Hampton Town agreed upon. Peter Wilson, architect and engineer from Bridgehampton, has submitted all necessary applications and whatever permits are needed. Now it is about estimates on the museum’s design. Many companies are vying for the job, including Aiden Cornish, designer of The Children’s Museum in Bridgehampton. “We have the artifacts,” says Cooke, “the lease, the approvals, what we need now is $700,000 to make it a reality.” Saturday night, July 21, was a start. Three hundred people partied and donated at the Montauk Lighthouse under a tent. “It was a wonderful event,” says Cooke. “People had fun; they seemed interested in what we are trying to accomplish. Will that continue? I hope so.” Cooke is the first to admit he is over-the-top enthusiastic about the Montauk Indians and the museum coming to fruition. He is as sincere as they come. He sees his spirited team as no coincidence. I mentioned Peter Wilson, architect. And then there are the historical experts to answer such questions

as, “how did these local Native Americans live? What happened to them? Where is the truth, the history of the land, for all to know and appreciate? A mainstream awareness is needed.” He found Dr. Gaynell Stone, Professor of Archaeology at Suffolk Community College and author of Languages and Lore of the Long Island Indians, The Historical Archaeology of Long Island and The Shinnecock Indians. Another expert on Cooke’s dream team, is Dr. Maria Louise Sidoroff, an archaeologist and member of The Society of Primitive Technology, which specializes in pottery. On October 13, on the grounds of Second House, there will be an Archaeological Fest with demonstrations of Native American skills such as pottery making. It provides another opportunity to ask questions about the Montauk Indian Museum. Donate if you can and become part of an educational experience a whole community can share. Which leads me to an element of this dream that Cooke wanted to talk about. “Can the nonNative Americans, such as myself, join forces with our local Native Americans and come together as a community?” Cooke hopes that it can. Some recent history bears mentioning. Chief Robert Pharaoh, of the Montaukett Indians, wants to teach the community about his ancestors and their relationship to the land they lived on out here. There are a handful of Montauketts still living on the East End. Pharaoh has been fighting for federal recognition for his tribe for a while now and has spoken about his own vision for a place (Continued on page 60)

If New York State Winery Laws Have Relaxed, You Can Too


arm wineries and craft breweries, which are plentiful on the East End, have achieved a major legal victory. The New York State Legislature has recently passed a measure, which was sponsored by Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele, Jr. from Sag Harbor, to ease the tax burden of these wineries and breweries by relieving them from a burdensome filing requirement. With a unanimous vote of 140-0 in the State Assembly, small wineries and breweries have gained more time to focus on their businesses, instead of paperwork. Previously, the state required all wineries and breweries to keep track of and report every sale made to restaurants, bars, and other retailers. For small farm wineries and craft breweries, this resulted in an onerous and unnecessary amount of tax filing, with a high financial cost. “Farm wineries were being treated as if they were liquor wholesalers,” Assemblyman Thiele explained. “The farm wineries out here on the East End, these are small operations, they’re family operations. We’re not talking about big, major corporations that may have had the resources to make these filings.” Instead of focusing on their products and building their businesses, these groups were bogged down in the office for a significant amount of time. The new requirements exempt them from reporting these types of sales to the New York State Department of Taxation. Farm wineries are licensed to produce no more than 150,000 gallons annually, and farm distilleries no more than 35,000 gallons. Thus, supporters argue, their sales account for a very small percentage of retailers’ overall purchases. In addition, these businesses will still be required to maintain sales records under requirements imposed by the State Liquor Authority, and the Department of Taxation can request to see them. Joe Gergela, the Executive Director of the Long Island Farm Bureau, noted, “Any information the state needs, they can get—they don’t need to require paperwork.” He added that when wineries sell to wholesalers, it is redundant for them to file paperwork as well as the other parties. Moreover, wineries and breweries are already under strict regulations because of the nature of their industry. There are many federal and state regulations on the alcohol business, including much administrative work. The tax filings for small wineries and breweries that have been lifted were merely an extraneous and secondary approach to getting financial information. “It’s not a tax exemption, tax reduction, or tax relief—it’s paperwork relief,” emphasized Larry Perrine, CEO and partner of Channing Daughters winery in Bridgehampton. “It’s a report that we no longer have to submit that takes between 80 and 100 hours a year.” Perrine oversees the legal operations, financial planning, and money management for Channing Daughters, and now he has more time to grow his business instead of filing what he deemed “unnecessary reports.” The local agricultural community, especially the Long Island Farm Bureau, has lauded the new regulations for supporting the farms of the East End. Since there are so many small

businesses on the East End, especially believes that by improving the overall wineries, it is critical to support them economic climate, “It means more jobs for the economic health of our region. for wineries here on the East End.” Steve Bate, Executive Director of the There has been a small amount Long Island Wine Council, highlighted of opposition to the new tax filing the tourism aspect of Long Island plans, from groups such as Mothers wineries. “Tourism is a big part of the Against Drunk Driving (MADD) who wineries’ business out here,” he said. believe that alcohol industries should “It’s growing quite a bit and continues be regulated more and not less. “We to grow, and it is a very, very important understand the need for responsibility contingent for the local economy.” I’ll drink to this. and accountability,” said Gergela. Wineries bring tourists to the area, “It’s not going to harm the public, but which in turn support other local businesses. it is going to relieve the responsibility for The new legislation promotes the health and onerous paperwork.” The initiatives build local vitality of farm wineries and distilleries, and agriculture and support local businesses: “This thus the rest of the region. Even further, Thiele is good for Long Island.” (Continued on page 60) c.mcbrien/Flickr

Officials Meet to Prepare for Hurricanes By Alexandra Andreassen

Last year’s Hurricane Irene could have been a lot worse for the East End than it was. Long Island is especially susceptible to damage from high-intensity storms, so it is important to be prepared for anything that might come our way. On July 26 at the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton, Town Supervisors Jim Dougherty of Shelter Island, Anna ThroneHolst of Southampton, and Bill Wilkinson of East Hampton, New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele, Jr., and Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) administrators gathered to present important information on hurricane preparedness. Steve Tricarico, the District Manager for Eastern Long Island for LIPA, was on hand with a detailed and informative presentation about how LIPA prepares for and restores after storms. It was an appropriate topic, given that potentially severe thunderstorms were headed for our area that evening. “Restoring power after a major outage is a huge undertaking,” Tricarico began. Doing so “quickly and safely after a Nor’easter is our primary responsibility.” He gave a timeline for LIPA’s operations before, during, and after the storm. One week to 96 hours prior, they assess the potential damage, prepare equipment and manpower, and begin communication efforts. They arrange for “foreign crews” to travel from their home states—for Irene, places like Texas and Illinois— to help restore power should it fail. LIPA also calls their “Critical Care” customers, people who depend on electricity to live, such as those on life support equipment. Calls are also made to “Critical Facilities” such as hospitals, nursing homes, and water pumping stations, even though these places often have backup generators. LIPA distributes messages to the general public through their website (lipower. org), television, and radio. “Be prepared for extended outages,” he continued. “Electric restoration could take five to seven days and beyond.” After a storm, LIPA works toward this goal by getting transmission towers and substations up and running, and then working into businesses and neighborhoods. Fallen trees are the biggest cause of outages, so sometimes repair work is a complicated and tedious process. Crews work 16-hour days, and “It is an all hands on deck atmosphere” when a storm hits. “The main goal is to restore power safely to the greatest number of customers in the shortest time possible,” he commented. Tricarico recommended having flashlights, canned food, medicines, and bottled water on hand. If you get a backup generator, always have it installed properly by an electrician— otherwise, he stressed, you are putting yourself into even more danger than if a hurricane hit your home. Questions from attendees at the presentation made it clear that it is good to have a battery-operated radio, in case power outages render television, Internet, and phone services useless. Tricarico noted the importance of reporting outages to LIPA at 1-800-490-0075. Customers can also text in outages by registering their phone—text REG to myLIPA (695472) or at The website now features a map of the outage progress, which is extremely

helpful, and Facebook and Twitter (@LIPAnews) are also good resources to get information during storms. Another important topic of the hurricane preparedness seminar was to discuss what our East End towns do in the event of a natural disaster. Anna Throne-Holst, Southampton Town Supervisor, talked about their updated procedures, including a pocket-sized hurricane preparedness guide. “We take that very, very seriously,” she said, “that people have the basic information on hand and know where to call.” The town’s website,, will always be a good source of information. Throne-Holst mentioned the recent accident and traffic tie-up on CR 39 as “probably one

of the biggest eye-openers for us.” In working on solutions to events like this, they have implemented a “Code Red” alert system, where people can register their phone number and email address on the town’s website to get notifications about such events. In case of the need for evacuation, “The fire departments will in fact come and go door to door to make sure people have evacuated.” In the event of emergency, the most important thing is to stay in contact with local authorities and LIPA through websites, phones, and social media. Register your phone number and email, and encourage Critical Care customers to register with LIPA. Above all, be prepared. It could save your life.

20 Years Ago: Dan’s Papers July 31, 1992 By Dan Rattiner

The owners of the Empire State Building announced last week that the multi-colored lights up on the top will be turned off for the next four months while they do maintenance. Until Thanksgiving, the Empire State Building will have just regular white lights. This announcement touched off a memory in me. There was a time when this building and I had a very special relationship. As many readers know, I have published this newspaper over thirty years. I started it in my college days back in the early 1960’s. In 1972 there appeared at my office two men in business suits who said they had summer homes in the Hamptons, liked my writing and just wanted to stop in and shake my hand. I was appropriately flattered. Then they said they owned the Empire State Building and they wanted me to feel free to be their guests there anytime. I could go up to the top. I could use the telescope. I could take my family or any friends who wanted to go. All I had to do was to call them ahead of time and they would arrange it, free of charge. Normally, of course, you have to buy a ticket to do this. At the beginning of this conversation I thought these people are pulling my leg, but then after awhile they presented me with their business cards. Now this was twenty years ago and I do not recall their names or the name of their firm, but upon reading the business cards, I was persuaded. They said EMPIRE STATE BUILDING on there, and they said PRESIDENT or VICEPRESIDENT which was good enough for me. About a year later, I took them up on their offer. I brought my wife, my three year old daughter and my one year old son. I called ahead and when we got to that big Art Deco lobby there was actually a man in uniform waiting for us, who proceeded to take us past the ticket booth and past the public elevators to the very top for our very own private tour. A month after that I repeated the experience, this time with a group of friends. I wrote a little story about it in my newspaper. Shortly after that, in the mail, there arrived a letter from these two gentlemen along with a card, good for one year, that said I was a Special Guest at the Empire State Building and I should be given special courtesies. My name was printed on it, in bold type. This card was wallet size, and it had a picture of the Empire State Building, in faded orange, behind the lettering explaining my privileges. I kept it in my wallet. And I remember on one occasion when I was stopped by a police officer for failing to signal a turn, fumbling through my wallet and offering it up as my first proof of identification. In the years that followed, I took family and friends up to the top of the Empire State Building three more times. Each time, taking out my card at the ticket booth, I was filled with pride. I was a dignitary. A special guest. I was a personal friend of the owner of the Empire State Building. And my kids, now four and six, occasionally took it upon themselves to tell this to their friends. Indeed, walking around on the Upper East Side, I could see this wonderful building looming above all others, the very symbol of the City, and I felt sheer delight that I knew the owners and

Werewolf Path for at least 20 years. It was on Hagstroms Maps, it was on other maps. It’s on my iPhone map. I went back to the car and looked for it on a new gas station map I had just bought. It was gone. This man, or who owned this property before this man, had bought all this property on both sides of my road and had swallowed up my Werewolf Path. And then somebody had decided to formally change the name of the part of it leading up to this dead end to Old Sag Harbor Road. This information, at least until last Sunday, had not yet filtered down to the good folks who operate the computer maps at Apple. What happened? The biggest accomplishment of my life is now gone. This chapter in my book now looks like a lie. And perhaps the only people who know for sure what happened are the good folks at the Southampton Town Building Department.

Tomorrow, I call the Building Department and we shall see what we shall see. *** By the way, my next reading, this coming Saturday morning at 11 a.m. on August 11, will be of “Manny Quinn,” the store mannequin who for nearly 10 years was a full fledged member of the East Hampton Town police department working 24 hours a day seven days a week 12 months a year.

Riverhead Rising Right Now By kelly ann krieger


of Housing and Community Renewal funds. The Peconic Riverfront has also benefitted from the rejuvenation of Riverhead with the Grangebel Park Improvement Project receiving $1 million in funding, providing new bulk heading, lighting and safety improvements in the park. New and unique businesses like the new All Star Bowling Alley and Restaurant will only add to Riverheadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new outlook and with the downtown Main Street area gaining momentum, Riverhead has great things to come. Known to many as the Gateway to Long Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wine country and the Hamptons, Riverhead may be the new â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;? place people will flock to in the near future.

hen we think of culture, the arts, entertainment and restaurants on the Eastern End of Long Island, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always think of downtown Riverhead. But, with the help of local government, new businesses and attractions, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all happening. The historic downtown of Riverhead offers great opportunity for new businesses and new hope for those that have â&#x20AC;&#x153;weathered the economic stormâ&#x20AC;? so to speak. With various rejuvenation projects underway, hallmarks like the historic Suffolk Theatre and the Vail Levitt Music Hall bring lots of new folks to town. The Long Island Aquarium & Exhibition Center (AKA Atlantis Marine World) and the newly opened Hyatt Place also contribute renewed interest for many people who may have passed by the richness Riverhead provided in the past. The most important thing to remember is that all great things take time to become great and so the plan is to continue building the town up step by step.

Rendezvous to name a few. A compliment to the thriving restaurant district, Suffolk Community Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Culinary School has brought culinary students to downtown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The eagerly anticipated opening of the Suffolk Theater later this year is sure to provide the kind of year-round activities that will still further enhance and complement the already unique bustling East End Arts Council facilities on Main Street,â&#x20AC;? Nebons shared. Riverhead has also received a great deal of support from government officials and New York State funding efforts. In a recent article in the Suffolk Times, Riverheadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community development agency director Chris Kemper reinforced the support of the New York Division

Riverheadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vail-Leavitt Music Hall on Peconic Avenue

With this in mind, the campaign â&#x20AC;&#x153;Think global, act localâ&#x20AC;? provides yet another positive way supporters can both give back to and enhance the town. This grass roots campaign has brought attention and economic flow back by simply encouraging local shopping in Riverhead. The importance of supporting local business plays a huge role in the stimulation and prosperity of the local economy and summer events and annual traditions add to the positive exposure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Downtown Riverhead has begun to percolate a unique â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; personality in keeping with the sort of phenomenon occurring in places like the Meatpacking District and Financial District in New York. The transformation is one of the key ingredients that Dennis McDermott deployed in taking a former Chase Bank and turning it into one of the best new places to dine on Long Island. A few doors down from the Riverhead Project, the aforementioned Hyatt Place hotel has transformed East Main Street, not just visually, but in fact,â&#x20AC;? Janine Nebons, President of the Riverhead Chamber of Commerce said. There is a unique restaurant district forming on Main Street with something for everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; places like Athenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grill, Codyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Barbeque, Partoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Dark Horse Tavern, Tweedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Digger Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Riverhead Grill, Star Confectionary and

where the history and artifacts and culture of his people can be displayed in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;natural way.â&#x20AC;? Pharaoh attended the first meeting when Cooke met with John Strong, Professor at Southampton College to discuss this idea of a Montauk Indian Museum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a quiet observer,â&#x20AC;? says Cooke of Pharaoh. Cooke is anything but quiet, but make no mistake he cares about the Montauketts and their culture and history. Can the two men join together as an example of harmony and community, as the Montauketts themselves did with the settlers so long ago? Why not a joint venture? A shared dream?

band and there was dancing and at the stroke of midnight, the music stopped, there was a drum roll and all these beautiful colored lights were turned on, shining outward across the entire glittering city. Everyone cheered. My official Visiting Dignitary cards arrived year after year. One year they were in green, the next in blue, the next back to orange. Each one had the date of expiration on the top, which was December 31 of the year they were issued. Then one year, they stopped coming. It might be nice to report that I called the owners and found they had sold the place but the truth is I did not. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to know the truth. I wanted my connection to this building to go on forever. And so I imagined that the failure of the cards was just an oversight and if I wanted to go again Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just have to call and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d send me a new one, probably by special mail and with an apology. But my kids grew, the time went by, and the opportunity never presented itself again. After a number of years, I decided the worst was probably true. It had been nice but now I had other things to do. I forgot about Me and The Empire State Building. Until this week. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the matter with this work crew that they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do a little routine maintenance and keep the colored bulbs on at the same time? What has one got to do with the other? The lights will be off for four MONTHS? Where the hell is that telephone number?

Perrine was one of the key players in getting this legislation approved. Meeting with assemblypersons, senators, and committees, Perrine worked with others such as the Long Island Farm Bureau and the representatives in Albany to make it happen. After making the first phone call to Thiele to shed light on the issue, Perrine worked with others to convince the taxation agencies that the impact of repealing the original rules would be negligible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a piece of legislation thatâ&#x20AC;Śwe had heard really from the grassroots, from the local wineries that we have here,â&#x20AC;? noted Thiele. After circulating it in 2011, Governor Andrew Cuomo endorsed the bill this year and it was adopted. Through all the stories of gridlock in the government, this is a win-win story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very satisfying when you work through the process and it does happen and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re successful,â&#x20AC;? Perrine added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it took a lot of people to do this.â&#x20AC;?


ooke is not trying to step on anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toes. He was drawn into the idea â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was not a volunteer project. It was not something he longed to do in his retirement from the NYFD, living in the place he loves so much. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bored. He is â&#x20AC;&#x153;grateful.â&#x20AC;? He has a wife and two sons and loves his family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A certain amount of peace got sacrificed to go through this process of building a museum.â&#x20AC;? But Cooke would not have it any other way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel very strongly that something led me to do this. I am on this path. What I found in ponds and what we unearthed, what I know is that an entirely different human being than me, created all of this.â&#x20AC;? And Cooke thinks it is worth his time to share with the community what he and others know about a people who loved Montauk first. Check out for more information or to donate to the cause.

The new rules only apply to businesses that qualify as farm wineries and craft breweries. As Bate noted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we do have some small commercial wineries who still have to do the filing.â&#x20AC;? He hopes that it can extend to all New York licensed producers. For the time being, farm wineries and distilleries are relieved from the burden, and excited for the opportunity to grow their businesses without a growth in paperwork. As Assemblyman Thiele put it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is less time that the wineries can spend on paperwork, and more time making wine.â&#x20AC;?

The view from behind the chainlinked fence.


Firsts By ross perlin


n the end, it just happened. I loped around the diamond, circling my dad, pounding each bag so the dust leaked out. He stood there on the mound, smiling and silent, the hours of batting practice still heavy in his throwing arm. In a moment I would scramble over the chainlink fence, look both ways, and dart across Miankoma Lane, searching for the seams the ball made in the grass. The next day I’d tell my friends at the Sunday game; they’d taunt me to do it again. But now I was rounding third, years of hot pursuit evaporating into the altered air. It was a kids’ field now, and my eyes adjusted. For years, almost every Sunday morning from April through October, we played our innings on the Amagansett School baseball field, a deadly serious pickup game. The mothers held court in the stands, cradling juices and coffees and muffins from the Farmers’ Market—“Gossip Lane” to us. The fathers were out in the field: umping, catching, pitching (despite the recurring call “Kid pitchers!”, we didn’t throw enough strikes). We were friends from school, friends of friends, kids from the neighborhood—no idea where we’ve all scattered to now. Our batting stances, how teams were chosen, bumps and bruises, balls lost, legendary catches, unforgivable errors: I can’t remember the details, the peculiar lore of the Sunday games. We said things like “That’s one for the highlight film” and “Hey batta, hey Ross Perlin is a writer and linguist based in Brooklyn. His book “Intern Nation: How To Earn Nothing and Learn Little in the Brave New Economy” is out in paperback and ebook form this year.

batta, hey batta.” Burgers and shakes at Estia afterwards, if the grown-ups concurred in their cryptic post-game deliberations. Kids, we could afford to think of one thing at a time. Then the world came slowly back into focus, the thrill of morning gave way to the long thrum of Sunday afternoon, loading the car to go back. In the city there was no carrying. Only in the country could I stay asleep long enough, the backseat all to myself along a placid L.I.E., on a dark and empty 27. Asked to draw pictures of the country, I sketched topless telephone poles ranged along an endless two-lane road. It was the unexplained miracle of arrival: the groggy coming into consciousness at the house with red shutters, easing with a crunch along the final feet of gravel. Lifted by unseen arms into a room full of seashells, laid in a bundle on the bed. My parents were different beings then, gentle gods of the Amagansett night. Their breathing grew calmer after Manorville, the heat lost its bite in the ocean air. The special climate of the country set in. In 1988, after years of renting, my parents bought a house in the Amagansett lanes. Only later did I grasp the embarrassment of talking about second homes and “country houses,” in a world where so many people lack a first place to call home. You learn to talk around it, to paraphrase and make vague, to be silent. I wish I didn’t have to—we spent 50 days a year there, at most 100, but they were the days that mattered. Like everyone else, we made our lives intermittently, in fits and starts, sometimes touching the hem of heaven in a single day, sometimes drifting through featureless months. The house was our alternate universe; we played at small-town life (Continued on page 62)

So great was that madness for gold, I later learned, that the miners headed straight for the hills, abandoning hundreds of ships at San Francisco, later used as landfill for the growing city. They still turn up from time to time, the hulks and hulls of those ships buried beneath the city. Vessels that set out from Gardiners Bay among them, I like to think, giving ghostly salute from a distant meridian.

o be recognized as one of the top brokers in the entire country is quite an accomplishment in itself, but to be awarded the #2 Ranking in the United States by The Wall Street Journal is one of the highest honors. It means you represent the best of the best. Susan Breitenbach, Senior Vice President and Associate Real Estate Broker of the Corcoran Group, has definitely made an indelible mark in the real estate world. In her more than 20 years in the business, Breitenbach has climbed the ladder with her dedication, business savvy and talent for closing even the most complicated real estate transactions. In addition to being ranked #2 in the country, Breitenbach has been named the #1 broker in 2009, 2010 and 2011 for the Corcoran Group, as she sold $257,000,000 in volume for 2011 and was recognized by The Wall Street Journal as the #1 broker in the Hamptons in 2010. Prior to that, she was the #1 broker of Allan Schneider for 10 years. Breitenbach was born and raised in New York City, but took summer vacations with her family in the Hamptons. Before working in real estate, Susan worked on Wall Street in computer sales until she met her husband, Stephen Breitenbach, a high-end custom builder of luxury speculative homes on the East End. It was Stephenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing business that brought the family to the Hamptons 33 years ago. The couple moved permanently to the East End to raise their family and provide a great place for their children to grow up. Susan and Stephen currently live in Water Mill in their elegant custom home built by none other than Breitenbch Builders. They have three childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Matthew (Susanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partner at Corcoran), Michael who works at Blue Ocean Brokerage and Samantha who works as a junior designer at Mark Cunningham Design. Although Michael and Samantha both work and live in Manhattan, they love to visit on the weekends. Susan has fond memories of raising her family on the East End. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many things to do, we would go pumpkin and apple picking, enjoy a day at the beach or go fishing on our boat,â&#x20AC;? she shares.



Breitenbachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real estate career began on the East End when she realized how much she enjoyed working with people. She knew real estate would be the perfect fit. Real estate offers so many opportunities, and Breitenbachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural talent in the field and ability to manage and foster business relationships have contributed to her success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most inspiring thing about my job is meeting so many interesting people. I get very close to most of my customers and clients and I work extremely hard and I know they appreciate that. My clients respect my opinion and trust me, and that means the world to me. I am a perfectionist and strive to be the best at what I do,â&#x20AC;? Breitenbach says. With the real estate market moving in the right direction on the East End, there are many considerations for potential clients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best advice I can offer potential sellers is to hire an experienced broker who they feel comfortable with and have confidence in. Another important factor is not to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;overpriceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and listen to their broker! As for potential buyersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Buy now. There is an abundance of inventory and mortgage rates are low,â&#x20AC;? Breitenbach says. Some real estate brokers make the decision to team up with another agent or broker, and this proves extremely valuable to those who have a large portfolio of homes and properties. The benefit of working as a team offers more opportunity to grow and manage your business. When I asked her how she feels about her partnership with her son Matthew she shared â&#x20AC;&#x153;Working with my son has been really great. I think it works well because we both have so much to offer and we definitely complement each other. We work well together and we know what the other is thinking, but we also work great separately. He has a lot of enthusiasm and energy, a great way with people, and his technology experience is very helpful. I have of course more than 20 years of experience, lots of knowledge, and I am known for my negotiating skills and expertise when putting complicated deals together.â&#x20AC;? There are so many benefits when working as a team and the mother and son duo not only list properties, but they sell (Continued on next page)

Breitenbach has climbed the ladder with her dedication, business savvy and talent for closing even the most complicated real estate transactions to invest their money in something safe,” she said. Investing in real estate in the Hamptons is definitely a safe investment for the future. The market is definitely in a good place if you’re looking to buy, according to Breitenbach. Breitenbach has sold and managed over two billion dollars in real estate transactions with properties ranging from cozy seaside cottages to $60-plus million estates, and she continues to dominate as the #1 selling agent for land on the East End. To date, Breitenbach has been

recognized as making the largest land transaction in the Hamptons (in Bridgehampton) in 2007. Breitenbach brings her superior marketing and negotiating skills to each and every client she works with, and she strives to surpass their expectations. When Breitenbach is not working, she enjoys spending time relaxing and indulging in all the Hamptons has to offer. “The East End is one of the most special places in the country and in the world. I love that you can still find peace and serenity. I enjoy going to our great restaurants, taking a yoga class, playing a game of tennis, taking a A beautiful oceanfront property in Bridgehampton. spin class or walking on the beach.

Author, Magician Allan Kronzek to Perform on Monday


llan Kronzek, an author and magician from Sag Harbor, will be performing the new version of his show â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Art of Foolingâ&#x20AC;? at the Rogers Memorial Library on Monday, August 13 at 7 p.m. It will be a 60 to 80 minute show illustrated with paintings and posters of magicians past, and is intended for adults and teens. Kronzek has â&#x20AC;&#x153;been fascinated by magic since the age of 10â&#x20AC;? and has shared this fascination with readers and viewers in his various performances and books for the past 20 years. He is the author of many books, such as The Sorcererâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Companion - A Guide to the World of Harry Potter, which was a New York Times Bestseller. His next book, The Book of Powers Lessons in the Art of Magic is going to be the teaching manual for the Hocus Pocus Project, which is a non-profit outreach program that uses magic to empower veterans, at-risk youth, and children in hospitals. When he is not at home in Sag Harbor, Kronzek travels to schools and libraries in the New York area to Allan Kronzek perform programs that teach about the origins of â&#x20AC;&#x153;magic.â&#x20AC;? He performs closeup and strolling magic at private parties, has performed at Monday Night Magic in New York and has been featured on CNN. Kronzekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performances are not only magic shows, but also educational experiences that include a lot of historical information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Art of Foolingâ&#x20AC;? is a presentation that allows its viewers to experience magic as it was

performed at various times in the past. Kronzek teaches many concepts about the history of magic, such as why performers were feared as sorcerers and how the scientific revolution changed the perception of magic. The version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Art of Foolingâ&#x20AC;? that Kronzek will be performing is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a mix of mystery, history, and trickery revolving around the ancient art of conjuring.â&#x20AC;? Kronzek calls it â&#x20AC;&#x153;a combination of performance and a condensed history of magic as a performing art,â&#x20AC;? the beginning of which, he believes, was in ancient Greece. Kronzekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest in magic began when he was a child. He began as most enthusiasts do, by seeing a magicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance and â&#x20AC;&#x153;just being enthralled.â&#x20AC;? He questioned the magician immediately after the performance, asking for secrets, but when that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, his father drove him to Regowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s House of Enchantment, a magic shop in Pittsburg, which heightened his interest. By the time he was in high school, Kronzek had read all of the magic books in the library, so he began to look through bookstores, where he would sometimes be misdirected to anthropology and history sections. Reading the books about magic in these sections fostered an interest in â&#x20AC;&#x153;everything that relates to and intersects with magicâ&#x20AC;? from its history to the psychology involved. Psychology is very important in respect to â&#x20AC;&#x153;magic,â&#x20AC;? and most importantly, perception, or the way that people take in information and process it. An understanding of perception, according to Kronzek, allows the magician to Magic Publicity

Olympic Disappointment By David lion Rattiner

“You win the gold, you feel good. You win the bronze, at least you got something. But that silver medal it’s like “ almost won. Of all the losers you came in first in that group. You’re the #1 loser. No one lost ahead of you.” —Seinfeld I’ve been watching the summer Olympics with great interest. The drama of this Olympics

is very high and some of the stories that have come out this year have been incredible. While watching the gymnastics competition last night, I think seeing McKayla Maroney fail to win the gold, only to come in second, gives you an idea of what it means to be an Olympic athlete from America. Maroney was a favorite in the vault competition but fell on her second attempt. Even with the fall, this girl is so amazing, she took second. As she stood up on the podium with her silver Olympic medal, you’ve never seen a person who looked more unhappy. She was standing there crossing her arms, as if to hide the silver medal. She was ashamed of it and she knew that she just let the nerves get to her and if she just

did something a little different, she would have gotten gold. But it didn’t work out that way. The way she was standing on the podium really got me thinking about how Americans think. Americans like to win, really, under any circumstances. Her disappointment also got me thinking about life in general. Here in the Hamptons, I’m frequently amazed when I see a rich person who seems to be upset about something. I’ve seen some of the richest people on the face of planet earth, mope around in depression because something in their life wasn’t going the way they expected it to go. And even when you accomplish the greatest

achievement of your career, it’s amazing to see how the mountain you’ve climbed feels like a molehill. I watched an interview with a reporter congratulating a NASA official for achieving the unthinkable, having a remote-controlled rover actually land on Mars and send back detailed information about a planet. It’s just the craziest damn thing. The reporter smiled, gave his congratulations and then asked, “Okay so now that we’ve landed on Mars, where does NASA go from here? What’s next?” And I found myself interested in the question, as if I was thinking, well okay, whatever, they landed on Mars, that’s sort of old news now, what’s the next plan? You would think that people who seem to have it all, who seem to be getting everything they want at all times, get to walk around the world constantly happy and excited all of the time. You would think that if it was you up there winning a silver medal, accomplishing one of the highest achievements in sports, that you would be happy about it. But all of us understood the emotions that Maroney was going through and felt like she should feel sad. None of us blamed her for being sad, and the reason is because humans, as a species by nature, are just this way. Even when we have it all, if it’s not what our ultimate goal was, it’s easy to be disappointed. I think that one of the reasons the current economy in America is so incredibly traumatic for so many people, has little to do with their actual situation in terms of food and safety, but with the disappointment with themselves that the economy has brought. So many people today are still in shell shock because a venture that without question would have brought them great fortune in good times, has ended up falling apart in bad times. They are still living in the greatest country in the world and have food on their table and relative safety and stability around them, but they stand there on the podium, upset, as if they’ve failed, when really, they haven’t. It just didn’t work out the way it was expected, and that’s life, and you can always go for it again and there is always hope that you can achieve again, and that’s the part that’s great.

Cover Artist: Daniel Pollera By Marion Wolberg Weiss


his week’s cover by Daniel Pollera, “The Radiance of Late Autumn,” has had quite a journey from conception to execution and finally, to fruition. The idea for such a subject started when Pollera, a contemporary realist who has a penchant for houses with architectural “character,” decided he would like to photograph Dick Cavett’s Montauk residence. And who wouldn’t, considering that it was designed by Stanford White, whose company was a frontrunner among Beaux Arts architectural firms. Pollera brings his signature lighting and compositional elements to the painting. His picture plane is divided by lights and darks (blues), each expressing a different mood and feeling. There are no figures in the work, typical of Pollera, but a hat sitting on a small table suggests human interaction and life beyond what we see. Q: How did you come to photograph Cavett’s home? A: I wrote a letter to ask him, and he gave me permission.  I was really excited. Q: As people know, the original 125-year-old house burnt down in 1997, and Cavett rebuilt it, detail by detail, with his wife Carrie Nye. How did the house impress you when you first got there? What do you remember? A: It was so magical; it had such an aura. I spent three hours photographing it, and I have 90 pictures. I remember the sense of intimacy,

Pollera hopes his paintings show warmth and are peaceful and relaxing.

looking in the distance and seeing another house; the water moving, the branches moving. What an experience to go to Cavett’s home. Q: Then you did paintings from the photographs, your usual method. A: Yes. I gave Cavett one of them this past January. Q: But that’s not the end of these works. What happened then? A: I decided to offer one to both The Parrish Museum and Guild Hall for their collections. Both museums accepted them. Just think, two museums in one month. Q: How are the paintings’ mood expressive of

your style? A: I hope they show warmth, andare peaceful and relaxing. The world is so anxiety-ridden as it is. I want to counterbalance that. Q: Your use of light is also unique. A: It’s all about capturing the light and shapes of shadows, creating realism with light. Q: What do you want people to get from your paintings? A: Everyone will have a different interpretation, but I want the works to remind people of a place they have been to. Q: Talk about realism, your new works are somewhat different. A: My landscapes near Orient Point area will have some Surrealism. I made the images up in my head. Q: How do your works contribute to the legacy you want to leave? A: I hope to make a contribution; I am more mature now as a painter. If I were in Boston or Newport, for example, I would paint like everyone else there. But now I am creating differently by following my gut, recording images in an artistic way, having my surroundings documented. Daniel Pollera’s work can be seen at Southampton’s Chrysalis Gallery (2 Main Street). Call 631-287-1883 for details.

The goofy, pop culture carnival opening ceremonies drew criticsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; praises and lots of buzz, but unless you own a satellite uplink, you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t watch them live. The same goes for the closing ceremoniesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and everything in between. These Olympics became known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tape Delay Olympics.â&#x20AC;? NBC didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just edit a few events here and there; the network shut everything down and made us wait for condensed three-hour versions of the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results along with the stories carefully crafted for American audiences. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for the haters to start blogging. NBC was universally shredded for pretending that Michael Phelps hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won his 74th gold medal, when everyone already knew he had. Twitter users quickly formed hash tag insurgency campaigns such as #NBCFailâ&#x20AC;? to free the information for instant results. It got so bad that I started missing the days when Olympic controversies were about simpler issues like failed drug tests, Russian judges, and figure skaters wailing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why Me!! Why Me!!!â&#x20AC;?

Maybe it was unrealistic for NBC to try to keep the genie in the bottle. But can you blame them? They needed to deliver ratings to justify billions of dollars in ad spendingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just to break even. NBC made their money, die-hard fans were able to find results through digital channels, and the rest of us sat back on our couches and watched happy images all night long. We all won. Except for Ryan Lochte. This got me thinking about the power of social media. The rules of engagement and proper â&#x20AC;&#x153;netiquetteâ&#x20AC;? are more important than ever. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to start with Twitterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the platform that started the Great Tape Delay Debate: Rule #1: Just Because Anyone Can Tweet, This Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Mean You Should Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another way to put it: If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re over 18, have never had a Billboard #1 single or starred in a Hollywood movie, then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re better off not tweeting. Why? Because no one really wants to hear what you have to say. You can only make yourself look silly here. Rule #1A: The Kardashian Exception Disregard Rule #1 if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re starring in a reality TV show, or especially if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pitching one. Twitter was invented for you. Rule #2: The Fun Lies In Following At its core, Twitter is just a real-time gossip column. You have â&#x20AC;&#x153;officialâ&#x20AC;? news sources and tweeters giving their version of facts, and then you have everyone else making stuff up and commenting on it. The fun lies in reading what everyone else is talking about. Personally, I follow about 35 different people

at any time: rappers, comics, tech writers, business leaders, jocks. This provides the right mix of pseudo-news, eclectic opinions, and unintentional comedy. Rule #3: Pump Up The Volume When considering who to follow, look for people that are pretty active but not insanely devoted to tweeting. Insomniacs should be avoided; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to receive your first half-drunken 4 a.m. tweet from Kayne West, but it gets old. Fast. Rule #4: Consider The Source Try to follow people who write their own tweetsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as opposed to those who use ghost tweeters or publicists. A prime example is Ashton Kutcher. He was a GREAT tweeterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; active, insane, with opinions on everything from human rights to the new Roxy line of bikinis. Just a good read every time. Then he got into trouble for a premature tweet about the firing of Joe Paterno. A few days later, Ashtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twitter feed morphed into a tame set of canned soundbitesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;exactly what we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want from the platform. Alas, all good things must come to an end. Farewell, Ashton. Rule #5: Do Not Reply The final thing to keep in mind about Twitter is that the world is reading, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not part of that inner circle. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reply to Will Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;get well momâ&#x20AC;? tweet. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not looking for you to reply; he just wants you to know he cares. Follow these 5 ½ rules, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a thoroughly enjoyable Twitter experience. Next week: rules and protocols for Facebook, Linked In, and YouTube.



READS CHAPTERS OF HIS NEW MEMOIR AT THE LOCATIONS WHERE THE CHAPTERS TAKE PLACE If sometime this summer you happen to see someone in the Hamptons talking on a microphone to a crowd of a dozen people somewhere, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised. Every Saturday morning at 11 am (and sometimes Sunday) beginning July 27 and continuing on until the end of September, author, Dan Rattiner takes his book and microphone to one of twenty different locations in the Hamptons and Montauk to give a short history lesson about that spot and then to read a chapter about the events that went on there. Each event will take about three quarters of an hour and will include a Q and A period. The public is invited free of charge.

In this case, the player with the lowest score will be given the gold medal and so on for silver and bronze. If there is a tie for second or third a playoff will determine the winner. How a player qualifies for the Olympics has yet to be decided or if there will even be a cut. We also do not know how many golfers from a certain country will be allowed to play. Any other attempts for different format such as match play or a team event will most likely be declined since the original proposal was for a stroke play event. My hope is that there will be team and individual events both stroke and match play. This, in most opinions, would be more fun for both the viewers and competitors. Similar to the way gymnastics are contested. American architect Gil Hanse will design the 2016 Olympic golf course. He was chosen over leading designers such as Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, and Gary Player. Hanse will team up with Women’s Hall of Famer Amy Alcott to build the first Olympic golf course since the sport was dropped after the 1904 games. The course will be built at the Reserva de Marapendi in Barra, about three miles from the athletes’ village and four miles from the main press center and the international broadcast center. After the 2016 Games, the course will be used as a public facility. Hanse said construction on the course will include features similar to Royal Melbourne, and it is expected to begin in October and end by mid-2014. Attempts to test the venue are expected in 2015. Hanse and his team will be paid $300,000 for the design of the Olympic course and local organizers will shovel over the cost of building the venue. Certainly with the inclusion of golf in the 2016 Rio Olympics, it is evident that golf is now a global game.

Horse Dies at Bridgehampton Polo BRIDGEHAMPTON: A horse tragically collapsed on the field and died at Bridgehampton Polo on Saturday. “The horse suddenly dropped,” an observer told the New York Post. “Luckily the rider managed to jump off, and was OK. Everyone was very upset...” A polo spokesperson addressed the incident, saying that polo is an extreme sport, but the care and well-being of the horses is always of utmost importance. Vets are always at the ready, and there were two vets on-site that day. This the latest in a series of unforeseen circumstances that have plagued the 2012 polo season. The first two weeks of play were rained out.

Southampton Hospital Honored

Team Go Sail/Facebook

LOS ANGELES: Famed composer Marvin Hamlisch, who used to have an estate in Westhampton Beach, died in Los Angeles Monday after a brief illness. He was 68 years old. Hamlisch’s illustrious and prolific career spanned across virtually every musical genre, as he wrote music for Broadway and Hollywood. His work earned him a Tony, four Emmy Awards, three Academy Awards, four Grammys, three Golden Globes and a Pulitzer Prize. Among his notable accomplishments, Hamlisch composed the score for the Broadway hit “A Chorus Line.” He also traveled the world to serve as principal conductor of numerous orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic and the Royal Philharmonic. Most recently, Hamlisch was working as the principal conductor of the Pasadena Pops. “I think they are really trying, and I’ve found this to be refreshing. I felt like they can only afford so much, and (I decided), you know what, I should be part of this (the Pasadena Pops), because it could be a great success story,” he told the Los Angeles Times last year. “You don’t know, so you give it a shot.”

Clark in Position for Medal Race

LONDON: Shelter Island’s Amanda Clark, who is racing in the Women’s 470 with Team Go Sail partner Sarah Lihan, is in position to qualify for Friday’s Olympic Medal race after posting two Top 10 finishes on Tuesday. At press time, Clark and Lihan have completed eight of the 10 preliminary races and are currently in seventh place. After the final two races are held on Wednesday, the top 10 sailing teams will advance to Friday’s medal round. Olympic 470 teams receive points based on how they finish in each of the 10 preliminary races. On Tuesday, Team Go Sail finished third and ninth in Race 7 and Race 8, respectively. The results were a marked improvement from Sunday, as Team Go Sail came in last in Race 6. However, after all preliminary races are finished, a team’s worst race is eliminated and the remaining points are added together to determine who competes in the medal race. During Friday’s medal race, points for finishing are doubled. The points total after the medal race determines placing. After Race 8, Team Go Sail had a total of 73 points (53 net points after eliminating the team’s worst finish in Race 6), which put them between Germany and Italy.

Food Truck Derby Comes to East End BRIDGEHAMPTON: On August 10, mobile foodies will unite on the Hayground School grounds in Bridgehampton for the Great Food Truck Derby.

There will also be some Manhattan staples on site and a selection of soft drinks. Beer and wine will be provided by the Southampton Publick House, Brooklyn Brewery, Wolffer Estate Vineyards, Peconic Bay Winery, Duck Walk Vineyards and Pindar Vineyards. The event lasts from 4-7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at and include one serving at every food truck and unlimited drinks. Hampton Coffee/Facebook

SOUTHAMPTON: Southampton Hospital has been recognized as one of the nation’s “Most Wired—Small and Rural” hospitals, according to the results of Health Forum’s 2012 Most Wired Survey released in the July issue of Hospitals & Health Networks magazine. Healthcare information is a Board-level priority and a critical part of Southampton Hospital’s strategic plan to build a more robust healthcare system for its communities that will enable the Hospital to integrate existing physician offices, testing and treatment facilities. Robert S. Chaloner, Southampton President and CEO, comments, “Under the direction of William Bifulco, the Hospital’s Vice President of Physician Development and CIO, we are methodically building a paperless care environment that relies on digital information for all of our care records. We want to create seamless access to vital patient information and link our entire organization to provide improved care and patient access to services in the most effective care setting.”

LI’s Community Foundation Benefits East End HAMPTONS: On August 7, the Long Island Community Foundation announced $563,000 in recent grants to 23 effective nonprofits that make Long Island a better place to live, work and play. On the East End, the Hamptons International Film Festival and the Peconic Land Trust both received funds. The Hamptons International Film Festival was granted $20,000 to expand the Festival’s visiting artists and community outreach initiatives in the villages of Montauk, East Hampton, Southampton, Sag Harbor, Water Mill and Westhampton. The Peconic Land Trust in Southampton also benefitted, as it received $10,000 to involve the public in an update of Suffolk County’s agricultural and farmland protection plan.

ow-fat, low-cholesterol brownies and cheesecakes – that actually taste good? You’re thinking no way, right? Well, Keith Orenstein, founder of Crumb DeLites, is on a mission to prove otherwise with his delectable array of low cholesterol, low fat cheesecakes and brownies. “I started by baking for ‘bring your favorite food’ holiday parties where I work and everyone wanted the recipes,” says Orenstein. “I was also bringing trays of cheesecakes and brownies to the staff at the North Fork vineyards when going for wine tastings and they were very well received.” Crumb DeLites was born about a year ago, when

Keith Orenstein and his cheesecakes at Raphael Vineyard.


Orenstein’s passion for baked goods led him on a mission to make the same treats he liked to eat himself, but to make them healthier. “I wanted to take the recipes that I was working with and create desserts that were a little more healthy and could be eaten with less ‘guilt’,” says Orenstein. “I’d spend time in the kitchen having some wine, listening to jazz and then a lot of trial and error using egg whites, lower fat and trans fat free products along with feedback from my ‘taste testing’ friends. I chose to bake cheesecakes since my dad would always look forward to having a good cheesecake for dessert when I was growing up.” Orenstein has set up his shop right at the entrance to the beautiful Raphael Vineyard, and he offers free samples of his baked goods to lucky wine tasters. I stopped by Raphael last Sunday afternoon and had the chance to meet Orenstein and sample some of (ok, ALL of) his baked goods. My favorite brownie, hands down, was the Fudge Brownie with Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chocolate Streusel. A layer of fudgy brownie topped with a layer of chocolate chip cookie goodness – it was decadent and heavenly, and I couldn’t believe it was low fat and low cholesterol! His other brownie flavors include Cappuccino Chocolate Chip Fudge Brownie, Chocolate Chip Fudge Brownie with Toasted Coconut and Chocolate Streusel, and Fudge Brownie with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Streusel. On to the cheesecakes…After trying them all, I couldn’t quite pinpoint my favorite, because they are all so delicious for different reasons. The Blueberry Cheesecake was topped with fresh blueberry compote, and it was sweet and creamy, and the crust was so good! The Cappuccino Chocolate Cheesecake blew me away with its rich coffee flavor entwined so delightfully with chocolate, and the chocolate streusel top – which Orenstein uses on many of his baked goods – is out of this world tasty! You won’t miss ANY of the fat, trust me! Finally, the Chocolate Chip Cheesecake with Fudge Brownie and the Streusel Crumb topping is a must try.

North Fork Baker Offers Healthier Sweets

Orenstein’s decadent brownies.

Cheesecake paired with a fudge brownie – and it’s a healthier version? Wow! It was so good, so creamy and full of decadent chocolate flavor and the light crunch of the streusel matches perfectly, creating quite the symphony for your senses. Orenstein was kind enough to give me a bunch of samples to take to the Dan’s Papers offices in Southampton, so that the whole staff could have a sampling. It’s no secret that we here at Dan’s Papers like to eat, but the cheesecakes and brownies from Crumb DeLites disappeared within an hour. Everyone commented on how good they were, many of them asking where they could buy these delicious – and healthy! – treats. For now, you can go visit Crumb DeLites and Keith Orenstein at Raphael Vineyards Thursday nights and Sundays August 12 & 26 in the afternoon. Orenstein will be there every Sunday afternoon in the fall. In the future, Orenstein hopes to market his baked goods in the food service industry, and he plans to continue to evolve his recipes to be even lower in calories. If you stop by Raphael Vineyards for a taste and decide you want more, Orenstein will sell you cheesecake by the slice for $5 a piece, and his brownies are $3 each. Whole Cheesecakes are $40, and must be ordered in advance. Raphael Vineyards, 39390 Route 25, Peconic.

For Kids! Aug. 14

By kate maier

A hot August day at the Ditch Plains dirt lot and a small crowd of bikini clad women is swarming the trailer at Turf. Owner and food trucker Zachary Lynd is up to his elbows in lobsters and lemonade. After the blur of benefits and private affairs his mobile business has taken part in lately, he decided to give his staff the day to recuperate. At his 12:30 p.m. opening time there was already a crowd, whose likenesses were reflected in the sleek exterior of his tricked out Air Stream. After dropping into the scene amidst last season’s turf-war food vendor permit controversy, (hence the name) Lynd has settled into his sophomore year at Ditch with a curated quick-bite experience that combines three of our favorite things – surf culture, fresh local food, and fashion. At 28 years old, Lynd is one of those adorably scruffy, uber-laid back, effortlessly fashionable types that seem to be popping up in Montauk with greater frequency. He speaks in a soft drawl that is more surfer than Texas. He helped his family open a restaurant in Austin before he headed for the Big Apple to study design and marketing. Somewhere along the line he met and fell in love with Montauk. Despite the rash of criticism over Montauk’s

landing on the map in its own right, Lynd believes the hamlet has a lot left to offer. There are many things about it that will never change, he said, but maybe some of the things that do, like an influx of food truck options, aren’t so bad. His goal is to diversify the dirt lot, not to step on the toes of the Ditch Witch. “Wraps and tacos have already been done. How about stuff from local farms and fish markets?” he said. It’s no surprise that Lynd holds a School of Visual Arts master of branding degree. The dirt surrounding the Air Stream is decked out with unobtrusive marketing, from the ever changing neon-lettered signage (which on a recent day read something along the lines of “there is no life without lobsters,” in French) to the logos stenciled on the picnic tables. Shirts and baseball caps bearing his brand are a prominent aspect of the display, manufactured with help from local screen printer Jesse Joeckel, who runs Whalebone Creative, an art-blog-lifestylefashion venture. Lynd maintains a running roll of idyllic summer images inspired by Turf on his own Web page, “Every single thing you buy here supports someone around here,” he said. Lynds uses purveyors Amber Waves and Balsam Farms, and gets his lobster from Gosman’s. His generator “is from Jimmy Hewitt,” he said, referring to the infamous owner of The Shagwong Restaurant. The menu is simple, featuring a sinfully delicious lemonade acquired “from this girl at the farmers market” and a few light and refreshing salads, including a mouth watering marriage of watermelon


Turf’s popular lobster roll

and mint, and another crisp combination of radish, apple, and fennel. The lobster roll is the centerpiece. I find lobster rolls to be one of the most boring items in the food universe – purists insist that lobster, mayonnaise and celery should be the only components, which just doesn’t do it for me. Lynd’s lobster roll offered a much appreciated combination of seasoning – Old Bay, lemon zest, and a bit of a cayenne kick – transforming the staple from something blasé to something refreshingly delicious. Lightly garnished with scallions, thinly coated in mayonnaise and presented on a bed of potato chips. There were ample portions of meat and the bun was toasted just enough to keep things from getting soggy. For these reasons, this was the best lobster roll I have ever had. Pooh-pooh to the purists.

Amagansett resident Sir Paul McCartney was reportedly paid $1 for performing during the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in England last week. It seems more likely that he would have been paid a pound. In any case, locals are wondering where McCartney might spend his earnings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at the Hampton Chutney Co. maybe? Or at the Stephen Talkhouse? Does Sir Paul McCartney have to pay to get into the Stephen Talkhouse? These are the questions that locals grapple with daily.

Shows his work at Four Seasons Restaurant

Opens the Mulford Repertory Theatre’s 2012 season

By kate maier


hanks to some careful planning on the part of the organizers, the Escape to Montauk festival went off without a hitch this past weekend, without bugging the neighbors any more than a typical event at Sole East has been prone to do. Some Montauk locals, particularly those who live near the hotel, were wary of the music, fashion, food and fun fest. The same production team had orchestrated a much larger stunt under the “Escape to” banner at the Shinnecock Indian reservation last year. The fear was that an event of a similar magnitude in Montauk would result in disaster. But Rocco Gardiner, the man behind “Escape,” set out early to ease concerns. “Think of the magic you saw last year…and then place it in the day for a small crowd,” he assured in a comment thread on Indeed last year’s event was magical, a three-day celebration of adult play activities meant to simulate what some people might consider a good acid trip. Attendees who trekked to Montauk from Manhattan expecting something of the same nature were mildly disappointed by a decidedly more innocuous event. “The only people here are probably the people staying at the hotel who said ‘hey, what’s all that noise out there,’” quipped Jon Riber, who had paid for a VIP wristband to ensure entrance and was staying at a friend’s rental house. While a guest list was purported to be carefully

monitored, the volume of the event did not seem to call for such discretion. Khaki-clad security guards in place at entrances to the resort nodded and smiled when this reporter breezed in at around 3 p.m. Overall, the vibe was unexpectedly chill. The property is something of a magic garden, a restaurant, pool, and an oasis of daybeds, in the midst of a residential area obscured by carefully orchestrated landscaping. Two outdoor bars were set up and the resort’s Backyard Restaurant was open, although few people chose to dine. For the most part, there was a lot of milling and chilling about. A very small “fashion village” was just what one would expect – an upscale flea market of pop-ups including Tini Courtney’s “Handle Only With Love” jewelry and Billy Wolf “fine K-9 coatery,” where a gingham dog bandana retails for $22.50. According to the group’s Facebook page, other mini-events trickled on throughout the weekend, including surf crafts for kids and a synchronized swimming performance. A mix of DJ’s performed poolside during the day, and on stage in the evening, an eclectic smattering of musicians were in constant rotation—including one solo artist who executed some impressive Mumford and Sons covers on his acoustic guitar. The twin costume rabbit heads that are apparently a trademark of Escape productions were passed amongst guests inclined to wear costume rabbit heads. Some minor dancing occurred, but there were probably more foggy-eyed people flaying their arms

Elsewhere in Montauk, Dave Ceva, one of the hotel’s owners, was feted as guest of honor at a Montauk Playhouse benefit that probably drew a larger crowd. In fact, nary a Montauk local was to be seen at the Escape event, although Ceva executed his usual strategy and invited their neighbors via mailbox flyer. Gardiner’s aim to curate his Montauk production as an intimate boutique event rather than a big messy festival seemed to have met its mark. The crowd – a rather fashionable collection of mid upper class Manhattanites – was if anything, sparse. Gardiner seemed to be treading a fine line between “exclusive” and “empty,” but hey, at least traffic was no worse than any other August weekend.

Roy Nicholson at the Four Seasons By Marion Wolberg Weiss

Public art, especially in New York, can encompass diverse styles, shapes and sizes: a trip to the Seagram Building on Park Avenue and 52nd Street proved a good example. Our primary goal was to see paintings by East Hampton’s Roy Nicholson at the prestigious Four Seasons Restaurant. Before we got there, however, we couldn’t help but be mesmerized by the immediate surroundings, where different pieces of public art drew our attention. First, there was the Seagram Building’s plaza itself with its two fountains, the water spewing abstract designs into the air. Across the street (on 51st Street) were structures manifesting designs of another sort: architectural styles, ranging from a modern glass skyscraper to a Baroque church. It was as if we were sitting on a cliff (albeit the plaza steps) overlooking some canyons in New Mexico;

the buildings were the canyons, with their irregularity and height. (Both locations in New York and New Mexico could even be perceived as installations. Or natural landscapes, even if the Manhattan buildings were made of glass and steel.) In the middle of Park Avenue stood a brightly colored Pop Art sculpture with a figure riding a dolphin. Public art again. Well-known artists and architects contributed to the Seagram Building, including Mies van der Rohe (exterior) and Philip Johnson (interior) who both designed the structure. Once inside the building’s lower lobby, enamel on canvas by Francesco Tumbiolo graced the walls.

Yet there are variances. One symmetrical piece passed through the eloquent main dining room, is a group of real flowers in purple shades that look entering another space for special occasions. There was Nicholson’s art at last: a series of 52 pasted to the background. Not as subtle, but equally small paintings, each representing a different week arresting. The room itself is also connected to nature with of the year. Nicholson’s work does not obviously replicate the four seasons even though it conveys its hanging potted plants.

The Trials of a Lawyer By joan baum

Suzyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Case (Scribner) by debut novelist Andy Siegel is a knockout -- smart, sensitive, significant and in spots laughout-loud funny. The author, a personal injury and medical malpractice attorney in the city who sits on the board of The New York State Trial Lawyers Association, gets going with a prefatory note: â&#x20AC;&#x153;When a story begins â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Little Suzyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; you know some messed-up stuff is about the happen to an innocent kid.â&#x20AC;? But he advises, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hang in there.â&#x20AC;? The first chapter then presents â&#x20AC;&#x153;the unfortunate eventâ&#x20AC;? of six-year-old Suzy Williams. Rushed to a Brooklyn hospital by her devoted mother, June, in distress due to sickle cell anemia, Suzy goes into cardiac arrest, as a team of frantic doctors and nurses try to electric shock her into responsiveness. And then, as the author promises, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the ride begins.â&#x20AC;? And is it ever wild. And well done. Siegel, who summers in Amagansett, and who grew up in Great Neck, has been â&#x20AC;&#x153;litigating complicated jury trialsâ&#x20AC;? for over two decades. Not bad for a kid who was kept in remedial reading through the 11th grade, he notes. He knows what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to be an underdog. And now, he adds fiction adventures to those from his real life as he places his protagonistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;legal expertise and fighting spiritâ&#x20AC;? at the service of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the less advantaged people of the city.â&#x20AC;? Tug Wyler, a personal injury lawyer, gives the lie to what many still call ambulance chasing. As far as Siegel is concerned, he, Tug and those like him are â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Robin Hoods of the profession.â&#x20AC;? What gets Siegel going every day,

which he loves, is trying â&#x20AC;&#x153;to make the system work for the injured victim when the big insurance companies vigorously resist such an outcome.â&#x20AC;? Beware the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;complicationâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;iatrogenicâ&#x20AC;? (referring to an injury sustained during the course of medical care), Tug says. They mean, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not guilty and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to pay for it! In Suzyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Case, resistance is hardly the whole of it, as Tug follows a malpractice trial that leads to a cover up. He perseveres, risking not just his standing in court but, at least three times, his life. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing it for Suzy, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s irreparably injured physically and mentally and for her hot African American mom, and because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right thing to do. Tug is street-smart delicious, savvy-sharp, unconventional, determined, a wimp and wuss only with his imperious moneymad, narcissistic wife, Tyler Wyler. Right! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that kind of book! He hardly scorns money -in fact, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (in)famous for getting good judgments for his clients, including those on referral -which is the way Suzy comes into his life. He would happily sock it to the insurance company baddies who give injury victims a hard time. Will they be humbled? Frightened? Punished? Will justice in one case lead to Justice? Of course not. Besides, Tugâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to have his own series. The legal and medical lore in the book is impressive and absorbing. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun and so New York,

full of smart-ass observations, sexual innuendo, urban slang and dialogue that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for response. Unimpressed with a judge Tug turns to his lawyer and says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get out of here before I pop off at this pseudorighteous shit flake.â&#x20AC;? Did Counselor use profanity? â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, Your Honor, I asked my lawyer if he was going to the White House clambake. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very political.â&#x20AC;? Tugâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charm is that he acts honorably, even where women walk all over him but maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because he suffers from â&#x20AC;&#x153;SOMBS (Step On My Balls Syndrome).â&#x20AC;? Siegel trots out a full canvas of eccentric folks. These include those who do the bidding of The Fidge, a mysterious, powerful black man who seems to know his way around the underworld with expertise and dispatch. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also Lily, Tugâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-time, loyal Latina paralegal who bosses him around, when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not dissing him, and HIC folks -- thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tug talk for Henryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Injured Criminals, referral cases of those who have been â&#x20AC;&#x153;tried, convicted, and jailedâ&#x20AC;? for felonious conduct that he inherits from Henry Benson whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not against sending a killer or two Tugâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way. Tug takes them, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I repulse myself sometimes.â&#x20AC;? Then, invoking a mantra he recites at various and dubious times, he adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;At least I admit it.â&#x20AC;? Andy Siegel will be at the East Hampton Libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Night on August 11 at 5 p.m.

Reviving Jazz with Jam Sessions

“The Jam Session was conceived to fill a live jazz void in our community and it is our mission to expose live quality jazz to people for free or at a very low cost,” says Brondal. “It is important to us that kids and the new generation are familiar with Jazz and all its subgenres.”

The best moments happen when I lose myself in the music and I leave the room for the duration of the tune, and the audience and the musician become one emotional unit.” For Claes Brondal, jazz music is more than mellow harmonies of the cool or super accentuated rhythm in all things venturesomely juggled and yet gently stringed together for a memorable melody, it is a force, a verve that intimately connects and harmonizes two souls in a moment of chaste emotional output. The Jam Session is the physical embodiment of Brondal’s mission of creating awareness and reviving interest for the jazz community on the East End. “The survival, culture, and well being of jazz as an American art form, is solely the responsibility of future generations,” says Brondal. In our society, jazz has become less and less an affair of the youth. The genre receives little support by the record industry, the media, and society at large. And the band plays on... Although it is still managing to survive, jazz As much as Brondal and Landes enjoy playing, is not thriving like some other types of music. But only surviving is the lowest strata of existence, they understand that creating jazz awareness is more than just a soul-felt live performance. The Jam and that is not enough for Brondal. “If people are not exposed to and do not participate Session is living and breathing jazz education. Young kids know what jazz is in a broad, Webster in the evolution of jazz, the genre will fade out and not be a reflection of our time,” informs a passionate dictionary sense, but that is equivalent to knowing a great American novel only through synopsis. Like a Brondal. Brondal, along with his partner-in-crime, John good book, the cultural references and symbology of Landes, established the Jam Session back in 2009 jazz run deep. Every cog in the jazz wheel - the history, the in Landes’ Bay Burger restaurant with the intent of reviving the jazz culture for all ages, but especially lineage, the colorful personalities, the tragic heroes, the unsung geniuses, the fables, the legends, and the among the East End’s younger generation.

war stories - makes up the totality of the art form. That is why jazz is so utterly captivating. Nowadays, jazz seems to be merely a great historic memory stuck in the 20th century, a tangent in humanity’s existence in yet another individual quest for musical self-expression. However, for Brondal, jazz is not just an art form but also a way of thinking and living your life. “Its creative expression is very healthy for our minds, body and emotional well being, where the creative process is important for cognitive and social development.” Brondal has been reaching out to East End schools to help him in his mission of creating awareness of the jazz community. Schools can help revive this lost art form by informing their students about organizations like the Jam Session. “If jazz was marketed as aggressively as Hip Hop, R&B, and Pop the state of the genre would be different,” says Brondal. “And that’s what we’re trying to change – the culture of live progressive music.” Great music is a shared experience. It teaches spirituality by showing a person a portion of himself that he would not discover otherwise. Like all types of music it is catharsis; it has the power to reach new levels of creative individuality as well as old familiar places that offer redemption, or as hard bop tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin said, “Jazz is music made by and for the people who have chosen to feel good in spite of conditions.”

Irma Vep Comes to the Mulford Barn By joan baum


here’s no mystery about why Charles Ludlam’s 1984 tour-de-force cult classic Gothic novel spoof The Mystery of Irma Vep isn’t performed more often, even though in 1991 it was “the most produced play in The United States” and two years later “the longest-running play ever produced in Brazil.” It demands a director with a strong sense of satire, farce and absurdity, actually of The Ridiculous, which was the name of the Theatrical Company Ludlam founded in 1967. It also requires two actors – same sex, please, as Ludlam stipulated – who can do the play’s several roles without losing a beat. For sure, Irma also deserves an audience that can appreciate the choreographed mania (a wild number of costume changes in two hours), outrageous puns and campy allusions to literature, film, not-so-mellow drama and the gay community. As for that name, “Irma Vep,” well, anagram lovers may start to play around immediately, but patience will be rewarded, as the mystery of who, or what, Irma Vep was or is emerges in full antic-frantic Ludlam mode.

Mystery of Irma Vep, while “fun, is not pedestrian, it’s not the kind of play you can see just anywhere.” It also has a lot of physical energy and that appeals to Kate as a specialist in dance theatre. Irma opens Mulford Repertory Theatre’s 2012 season, its fifth year. The company is named for the playing ground – Mulford Farm, an old English Colonial farmstead. The theatre itself is the historic 1721 Mulford Barn, which has been designated by the NYS Department of Parks, Recreation and Historical Preservation “the second most important eighteenthcentury barn” in the state. As has become a tradition, East End residents and visitors are encouraged to come early, bring chairs or blanket and picnic on the lawn and stroll around. As East Hampton Historical Society Executive Director Richard Barons says, “the idea of getting an audience to experience both an amazing 18th century structure, replete

with 290-year-old beams, while rolling in laughter at a camp-style comedy, seemed like a great way to introduce a new venue to people not familiar with the Mulford Farm Museum.” Doing the play was actually Richard’s idea, Kate says, as he selected Irma from a handful of possibilities they had discussed. EHHS is sponsoring Mulford Repertory Theatre as part of its mission “to provide accessible professional theatrical productions in a historic setting.” Kate hopes the performances will also generate a sense of wonder. She would like the audience to leave saying “How did they do that?” Performance dates: Wed.-Sun. August 15-19 & Wed-Sun August 22-26; Thurs.& Fri. August 30-31. 7:30. At Mulford Farm Barn, 10 James Lane, East Hampton. Note: Seating is limited (50 max). Call TheaterMania 866-811-4111. $20 in advance, $25 at door. Gates open at 5:00 p.m..

Trevor Vaughn and Isaac Klein

With Kate Mueth directing, Trevor Vaughn playing Lord Edgar, owner of the madcap manor house, Mandacrest, and Isaac Klein playing Lady Enid, Edgar’s second wife (number one was Irma, now deceased), The Mystery of Irma Vep couldn’t ask for a better ensemble. The principals have solid grounding in all aspects of theatre and extensive experience doing both serious and send up. It’s particularly rewarding, says Kate, that the actors, both 29, are good friends and colleagues and are “highly intelligent and committed to theatre.” They met at the North Carolina School of the Arts and are collaborating on a play by Isaac in the city. Casting good friends saves time, she points out. Her own take on the play will be just that -- her own. Though she has done some research on Ludlam, she is eager to put her own stamp on the production, one that will respond to the special demands of doing an outdoor performance on a small stage, “working smart.” The first half of the play, she notes, will take place before the sun has completely gone down. Thus, the being-transported-to-Egypt scene (don’t ask!) must be timed so that it can take place in total darkness. Other considerations were stage space and season. The play is being performed in a barn. The stage is small, the audience up close. A piece that calls for just two actors seemed ideal, and summer seemed to suggest light fare. But The

Rock & Folk Fest Rolls into the North Fork By nick chowske


he North Fork is getting ready to rock, as the 3rd annual NOFO Rock & Folk Fest kicks off at Peconic Bay Winery in Cutchogue on August 19, but this year, fans can expect quite a different scene. What began as a two-day music festival featuring international and regional musical acts, as well as local vendors and family activities, has been transformed into a concert series that will have different musical events throughout August, September and October. “We were inspired by last year’s successful Johnny Winter show, which was far less complicated than a music festival,” said Jim Silver, general manager of Peconic Bay Winery. Johnny Winter had played a Father’s Day concert at the vineyard, which was both well-attended and easier to coordinate. “This year we thought, ‘instead of doing these complex festivals,


let’s do a small series of concerts with interesting musicians and accomplished artists.” “It’s not the large event that people are expecting,” national acts.’” “This approach will enable us to offer genre- Silver said. “We’re going to do a fish fry, so people specific showcases in lieu of a large two-day festival,” don’t have to bring their own food, and it’s just going to be a wide open, folky said Josh Horton, NOFO’s kind of event.” co-founder and organizer. Despite the change In addition, it will allow “We certainly enjoy doing what to NOFO’s format, their for a more comfortable mission to bring live setting at a lower price we’re doing, and I hope that it’s music performances point, and each show will infectious enough for the audience from both international still feature North Fork and local artists to the produce, wine, food and to enjoy it too.” North Fork remains the artwork. same. In keeping with “It’s more intimate” Horton said. “It’s on the great lawn at the Peconic Bay that goal, two Long Island bands will be opening the Winery, so people can expect an atmosphere where show: The Second Hands, of Greenport, and Miles to they can be barefoot and sit on a blanket or chair Dayton, who’s song “Firefly” was recently featured that they bring, and be merely feet from tremendous in “O” magazine, as part of Val’s “Songs of Summer” playlist. Horton, who is an accomplished musician, writer and show producer, started the Rock the Harvest Festival in 2009 to feature Long Island-based bands. “I’ve long thought that the North Fork is a prime place for additional live performance opportunities,” he said. “And Peconic Bay Winery has always been one of the most progressive and committed wineries on the North Fork when it comes to live music, so ® they were a natural partner for NOFO.”

The first concert in this series will celebrate the life and music of rock legend Levon Helm with their headlining act, The Dirt Farmer Band, who are the core members of the former Levon Helm Band. “They’ve not only toured worldwide with The Levon Helm Band,” Horton said, “but they’ve also performed on all of the past three Grammy Award-winning albums that Levon put out.” Levon Helm lost his battle with cancer this past April. “I thought that honoring him and all that he contributed to music, and to the world, was the right thing to do,” Horton said. Playing in the Dirt Farmer Band will be Helm’s daughter, Amy Helm, as well as Grammy Awardwinning producer and multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell. Campbell, who’s most noted for his time with Bob Dylan’s band, is both The Dirt Farmer’s musical director and frontman. “There’s no better group of people to bring to a show and stir up the essence of Levon Helm than The Dirt Farmer Band,” Horton said. “The Dirt Farmer Band is just us continuing something we started with Levon and, while referencing material from those albums, turning it into something that stands on its own,” Campbell said. “We certainly enjoy doing what we’re doing, and I hope that it’s infectious enough for the audience to enjoy it too.” “We’ve had more interest in The Dirt Farmer Band than almost anything we’ve ever done,” Silver said. “We get six or seven phone calls a day, and I fully expect it to sell out.” Better call soon!

Art for All at the Chrysalis Gallery


artists of a more contemporary nature, an addition meant to reflect the changing tastes of the East End art buyers. They even have a shop in the back room where customers can bring their works for museumquality framing.

he Chrysalis Gallery, located on the Northeast corner of Job and Main Street in Southampton, is no new comer to the East End art scene. Owner Agnes Ehrenreich (pronounced “air-inrick”) opened her painting and sculpture gallery 17 years ago. In that time other galleries in the area have come and gone, but she has managed to stay right where she is. This might be due to her personal approach to selecting and selling art. The gallery displays different styles, ranging from realism, to impressionism, to abstract by a group of over 50 living artists with international, national, as well as local backgrounds. Walking in you will come face to face with an (almost) life-sized sculpture of a red Andy Warhol by Florida artist, Jack Dowd. In the main gallery room, paintings – portraits, landscapes, nautical scenes – hang from every bit of wall space. Bronzed sculptures are squeezed into any horizontal platform you can find. They have paintings by Chinese artist George Xiong whose work was recently Agnes Ehrenreich and Andrea Bejsovec featured in the Adam Sandler film That’s There is something for everyone at the gallery, My Boy. You will even find the works of two of Dan’s Papers past cover artists: Larry Johnston, who is both in terms of style and price. “We have enough known for his paintings of lifeguard stands, and to offer those new to the art world as well as Daniel Pollera, whose painting of Dick Cavette’s experienced art collectors,” Agnes says. “And we try to keep our art at ‘new artist prices.’” Many art house is on the cover of this week’s issue. Everywhere you look there is something galleries, especially in the Hamptons, live and die by interesting. Outside they have a sculpture garden, selling a few pieces every season. “We are not trying which Besjovec calls “one of the best collections in to make it off the sale of a million dollar painting,” she the country.” Downstairs there is a room devoted to says. “We are about trying to develop relationships

with our customers and artists to make buying art a more personal experience, we don’t want anyone to feel snubbed.” She seems to have accomplished her goal: when costumers came into the gallery, there was not that sense of awkwardness that one expects - they spoke like old friends. According to Andrea Bejsovec, who is becoming a partner of the gallery, “Agnes is an artist herself, so she really takes care of her own artists. She finds many of them at the beginning of their careers and helps them out along the way. That is why you’ll find that so many of her artists stick with her even after they have found success.” It is quite a responsibility selling an artist’s work. Their careers depend on how their pieces are valued, but they will not sell unless the customer feels like it is a good investment. Agnes has earned a great deal of respect from artists and collectors alike for her ability to keep prices in balance. “In the beginning I would have to search far and wide to acquire artists,” Agnes says, “Now they are beating down the door.” Their events are not to be missed. The artists are present at every reception they hold, offering costumers a great opportunity to understand their work better. On August 11 they have a reception for “Captivating Compositions,” a showcase of the works of Connie Foley, Debra Bigeleisen, Richard Hecht, Laureen Hylka and Theo Pinto. Then on September 1, they will hold their highly-anticipated “Labor of Love” exhibit. But no need to wait for these events, stop on by anytime to discover new art and a have nice chat.

The Salt of the Sea Screened in Montauk By joan baum


ou couldn’t order up a better intro for Tom Garber’s film on the plight of Atlantic Coast commercial fishermen, The Salt of the Sea, shown on Tuesday, July 31 at Gin Beach Market, though singer-songwriter Nancy Atlas got close. But just as she was laying down more chords, settling folks into a communal mood on the Montauk lawn, a huge rainbow formed out of the mist and arched itself across the darkening sky. Heads turned with wonder. The assembling crowd gasped in admiration, and Garber whipped out his camera phone, a broad smile on his face. The event was blessed. Fifteen minutes later the movie screen rippled with images of the ocean at sunrise, as soft music tracked a couple of trawlers slipping into the harbor. Shots of porgies, fluke and gulls followed and boat names were prominently displayed. This will be a movie about the personalities of unusual and endangered individuals, mom and pop commercial fishermen whose value is being diminished by irrational catch limits, outrageous fines and corrupt government agencies. Early on, fishermen are shown throwing fish back into the sea. The Salt of the Sea is arguably Third Wave Films Executive Producer Garber’s most heartfelt film, one for which he shunned all outside funding, one already entered into 15 film festivals across the country, and Canada, and one that he hopes will have even wider exposure than his previous awardwinning work which has been seen on PBS and The Discovery Channel. “I am passionate about stories that provide inspiration and motivation for the

human spirit. Maritime films are the ideal platform to explore these subjects,” he says on his website. In fact, Garber has a more pointed mission here and that is to educate those who know little about these men or the centuries-old traditions they carry on, and to galvanize support for the repeal or modification of devastatingly restrictive and cruel laws.


he film’s final words evoke Walter Scott’s line from his 1816 novel The Antiquary: “It’s not fish ye’re buyin, it’s men’s lives,” which furnished Peter Matthiessen with the title for his depiction of the baymen of the South Fork. Now, 26 years after that book, and on the 20th anniversary revival of Joe Pintauro’s play, Men’s Lives at Bay Street Theatre, the “highly charged subject” takes on new urgency. A recently released government report – “the smoking gun” for Garber – highlights what Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts has called the “culture of corruption” infecting NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). The report documents and the film emphasizes how this federal agency in charge of guarding the nation’s oceans and atmosphere has relied on “unscientific data,” even if provided by scientists, and is pursuing policies that are destroying the fishermen, mainly by way of irrational catch limits and outrageous fines. Two themes guided him, Garber says: the “corruption that’s crippling these guys” and despite that, their determination – “they’re not quitters, their hearts and souls are in their work.” He even used a new camera to get the best effects, a GoPro (waterproof, wearable, lightweight, small, inexpensive), and motion-picture quality 16 mm film.

Though Montauk, the largest commercial and sporting fish fleet port in New York State, was the perfect place to launch in public, Garber first showed the 53-minute film in Hampton Bays for some of the fishermen and their families and friends. The Montauk screening was clearly a love-in, including Nancy Atlas, whose father was a fisherman, and Jamie Booth, who runs Fun Flicks Outdoor Movies and provided the large portable inflatable screen, accompanying equipment, and generous support. The Salt of the Sea is a good-looking, well made film, short enough to hold attention and sharp enough to provoke action. It clearly reflects Garber’s goal to have his films “resonate history” and “transport the viewer into the story.” The film alternates scenes of “colorful, legendary characters” at work and in reflection, as they recall the dangers and frustrations of their work lives, and shots of bureaucrats engaged in bombast and false claims. Interspersed are text notes, some shocking—did you know that these fishermen have the highest death rate of any profession; that the Northeast region is “the most regulated in the world;” that “most” of what is caught is discarded, dead or alive and that The United States imports over 80% of its fish supply and from relatively unregulated areas in the world, only 1% of which is tested for banned chemicals? So what else is new, you might ask, that has not already being said by Matthiessen or Pintauro? Neither personal memoir nor dramatic reenactment, The Salt of the Sea documents with passion and grace an important part of America’s cultural history and implicitly invites a newly informed electorate to make its voices heard.

What’s Old Can Be New Again


ith the debut of Montauk’s new Antique Lumber Company, Jason Biondo’s career path is finally starting to make sense. The locally born father of three, perhaps best known as the guy behind Hammerhead Construction, has juggled jobs as a journalist, bartender, and maintenance supervisor since graduating from college with a fine arts degree more than a decade ago. Now he’s putting his previous passion for sculpture to good use – along with his experience as a builder – with a backlog of custom furniture orders and a fledgling business that is taking off in a big way. The Montauk showroom is an offshoot of the Antique Lumber Company started by Biondo’s business partner, Sag Harbor native Don Disbrow. With a dozen years of experience in dismantling barns, Disbrow maintains a trusted connection with the Mennonite community in Maryland. He’s a man who can get things – although it may take some time. For bigger jobs, like flooring, “we have to locate it. If we don’t have it, we can find it,” said Biondo, whose typical customer ranges from the professional builder, looking to score the perfect antique heart pine for an accent wall, to the day tripping housewife with a credit card. There is something about the smell of fresh cut lumber that brings out the wood geek in all of us. In Montauk these days, there are wood geeks aplenty. “Montauk is booming like I’ve never seen it before,

and I grew up here,” said Biondo in an interview atop door to foot traffic that wasn’t in the equation at his a bench he had crafted himself on the lawn of his partner’s previous showroom in Water Mill. Still, a significant part of his sales are direct Main Street store. “People that built houses in the 80’s and 90’s are to builders, particularly older, more seasoned heading to Florida… and there’s this whole influx of craftsman who Biondo says are “seriously into this old school style of building.” young hip people moving here.” “There’s no scrap lumber with this stuff,” said As with most things that trickle east, reclaimed wood has been all the rage in the city for years.

DIY Creative Cabinet Restoration By tamara mattHews-stephenson

Summer is in full-swing and it is not the most ideal time to take on a renovation in our busy kitchen. When we bought our house almost 12 years ago, my stock pine cabinets looked dull, so in order to inject my new home with a little old-world charm, I hired a specialty painter to give them a weathered look. He swathed the cabinets in a canary yellow paint with intentional worn edges. It did give the brand spanking new kitchen much needed character. A decade later, what was once a French country homey kitchen started to look worn. There is no doubt a brand new set of kitchen cabinets would have been preferable, and I most certainly have my designs outlined for a future upgrade, but I needed something less painful this summer.

to Fine Paints of Europe. Based in Woodstock, Vermont the company has a small town vibe, illustrated by the fact that each time we called to ask questions the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s professional colorist Emmett Fiore answered the call. As a matter of fact, Emmett provides complimentary color consultations weekdays from 9 a.m. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 5:30 p.m., like a paint hotline. FPE strongly suggests pairing the paint with their brand of paint thinner and primer. The paint is expensive and a single small can costs a hefty $50. I did remember from working with the paint in the past it goes a long way, and in the end we only used two 25 ounce cans of paint to cover my entire set of kitchen cabinets. FPE claims their paint coats dramatically better than other brands because of a better concentration of ground pigment. I had used the paint before when embarking upon do-it-yourself weekend projects. The paint is not easy to handle,

and it feels â&#x20AC;&#x153;thickâ&#x20AC;? when applying, making it hard to drag the brush. Once getting used to the consistency and if applied carefully, the dried result is exquisite, and the paint is quite durable as well. When hiring a painter, I recommend taking references and checking them and their work. Jack is quite methodical, and although he had never worked with FPE before on kitchen cabinets, he agreed it was worth the extra money and effort to use this paint. Jack stripped the cabinets, finely sanded them, and then applied one coat of primer. It was only necessary to apply one coat of paint since it coats quite well. We then stopped into Home Depot and bought a combination of brushed aluminum knobs and pulls to give the cabinets a bit more detail. Once the cabinets were painted and we installed the new hardware, my kitchen felt fresh and ready to take on the rest of summer 2012.

My â&#x20AC;&#x153;newâ&#x20AC;? kitchen cabinets

I began planning by collecting photographs from my favorite shelter magazines of â&#x20AC;&#x153;dreamâ&#x20AC;? kitchens. A consistent theme started to develop, as I tore images and added them to a spiral notebook. I now had a growing stack of photographs with crisp white, shiny cabinets and brushed aluminum pulls contrasted against dark wood floors and tile. I am enamored with the many new counter materials offered in the marketplace, and this year alone I specified various stone, marble and manmade materials for clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s counter tops. I even put oversized glass tile backsplash in a kitchen this year. When I looked around my own kitchen, I was thankful my granite counter top, subway tile backsplash and dark wood wide-plank floors are looking better with age, and hold a timeless appeal. We had also wisely invested in quality stainless steel appliances over the years, so it became obvious the cabinets were the culprit. I realized I could get a new look for my kitchen by simply painting these cabinets yet again, but this time in a crisp white. This was a job for a professional painter, and although I enjoy weekend furniture refurbishing, kitchen cabinets are best when painted with the steady, experienced hand of a professional. I hired painter Jack Davis who has been in business painting interiors and exteriors of Long Island homes for over 40 years. We brainstormed on various finishes and paint brands, and settled upon an eggshell sheen finish in an oil-based paint. I immediately turned

Gladiolus in Bloom For six years, I worked with a man and his son both named Josue from Michoacán in Mexico. They are both great gardeners and father Josue still works with me. Last year, at the end of the working year, son Josue returned to Mexico having decided that he wanted to be “a Mexican man.” One of the several ways he supports himself and his family is by growing gladiolas. Michoacán is a major growing area for gladiolas, and this flower is used extensively in that culture. In partnership with his father, he is growing acres of gladiolas. I can only imagine the work and the sight! Native to the Mediterranean and Africa as far south as South Africa and members of the iris family, gladiolas were described in plant literature in London as early as 1823. I have read that they were hybridized in Holland and England. In this country, their popularity has waxed and waned over the years. When I was a girl, my mother grew them in the garden where they stayed, not to be picked and brought into the house. We did not have flowers in the house; too showy, I suspect. And I often hear them today referred to as funeral flowers or too gaudy. I have begun to work for David Folkowsky at the Sag Harbor farmers market so I get to see people other than my husband and Josue and because I like and respect David and the market. David grows and sells two colors of gladiolas: chartreuse and deep purple. These two can hardly be called funeral flowers, as they are quite sophisticated and striking

Use Solar Power and Save



s we discussed in previous columns, you can get significant financial and environmental benefits by reducing your consumption through efficiency measures and by using the power of the sun to offset some of your electric bill. Using sunlight to heat water for showers, baths, sinks and appliances is another good use of the sun’s energy, especially in certain situations. Solar domestic hot water (DHW) has been deployed in different forms for hundreds of years, and it is ubiquitous in many parts of the world. The technology has come a long way, and it is now possible to achieve great aesthetics, performance and reliability with an integrated system. The integrated system is installed flat onto the roof and looks like a skylight. In addition, there are no bolts or brackets to create leaks and no unsightly exterior pipes. Most systems come with a comprehensive warranty. The environmental benefits are clear – a DHW

system will reduce carbon emissions and the amount of fuel needed to provide hot water for the home. The financial benefits can vary. Unlike solar electricity, there are typically no rebates offered by the utility. The incentives offered come in the form of NY State and Federal Tax Credits, so paying taxes is key to capturing the incentives. Furthermore, the NY State Tax Credit applies to primary residences only, so the financials are stronger on a primary residence. The biggest possible savings occur when a) you have an expensive energy source producing your hot water (ex: oil, propane, electricity), b) relatively The panels can look great of the hot water used in the summer, which in most high occupancy, c) good exposure and d) an inefficient hot water system. Many homes have cases would have been produced from expensive (and carbon-laden) propane and oil. In the winter one or more of these conditions. You may have wondered whether the sun could (with the house vacant and the thermostat turned be used to heat the house in addition to the hot down), the solar hot water can be used to reduce the water. However, there are some hard realities that fuel consumption for space heating. This requires a prevent this from making sense in most cases. The low-temperature heating system (ex: radiant floors), biggest problem is that winter days are short, and and a well-insulated home. We’ve had great results with this combination in often cloudy, so there is usually not enough sunlight to provide all of your space heat when you need new construction projects for seasonal clients that it most. The reality is that a properly sized DHW don’t have street gas, are well-insulated and have system would have trouble providing 100% of the full radiant heat. Obviously, in the new construction hot water in winter, so there would be no surplus for environment, installation is simplified – everything is accessible and brand new. space heat.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR CAVIAR CORRECTION Dear Ms. Dermont My name is Alexandra Kline. I am a co-founding partner of Pointy Snout Caviar. We are a sponsor of the Bridgehampton Polo season this summer. Last week, Dan’s Papers published an article in the Arts & Entertainment section about a recent event in the Polo VIP tent. It gives, at some length, a good description of our caviar company. However, it has printed our name as POINTY SALMON CAVIAR. In the caviar industry, this is about as grave a misrepresentation as one can make. Our caviar is the exact opposite of a salmon caviar (which, in fact, is not caviar at all). To use a rough analogy, it’s rather like calling vintage Krug champagne a Coca Cola. I would be very grateful if you could arrange for Dan’s Papers to print a correction, which states that our brand name is Pointy Snout Caviar. We offer only premium grade White Sturgeon caviar. With Kind Regards Alexandra Kline RUMRUNNING Hello Dan, David Giacone here. I’ve just begun reading your third book, and after reading the Tycoons chapter, a mystery was possibly solved. I’ve been fascinated with all these rumrunner trails for years, and while walking down one not too long ago, I stumbled across some ruins of train tracks. The trail begins at the end of Napeague Meadow Rd. and Cranberry Hole Rd. There’s a very rough asphalt road that goes into the woods, and it borders Marie’s Fish Farm. I’m sure that these are the tracks that you talked about in this chapter, as it’s such an unlikely place for a railroad, and also because it’s not anywhere near the

Montauk line. I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but I thought I’d mention it. There’s also ruins of the fish factory chimneys in here too. I’ll be at your reading tomorrow morning. Looking forward to it. Sincerely, David Giacone East Hampton MEMORIES & THANKS Dear Dan and Ellen, I miss you both! I really hope the summer is going well. I just submitted to the literary contest. What a great idea, Dan! I think it’s wonderful and I had a very personal experience around it since my brother has submitted three complete stories. I am not sure if either of you are aware but in June 2010 my 35-year-old brother, Jimmy, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After a 16-hour surgery the mass was removed. The pathology came back as a medullablastoma – a form of brain cancer mainly seen in little children. It comes with an 80% mortality rate. Our lives were immediately uprooted to where he lives in Rome, NY and understandably, changed forever. His first son was only 12 months old. He experienced many complications following the surgery including a constant battle to lower his inter cranial pressure, which was high because of the swelling and the area (cerebellum) which made it difficult to drain the cerebral spinal fluid properly. That’s not to mention the major deficits he was to have. The surgeon literally said, “He may never speak again. They experience mutism. He may never walk again too.” When resecting the tumor, which was the size of an orange, they had to take lots of healthy tissue as well. It took him close to four months to recover in the neuro ICU from the surgery, and at

that point he had to deal with his oncologist to schedule radiation and chemotherapy. After many re-hospitalizations for blood transfusions, dehydration and infection, Jimmy finished radiation and chemo and embarked on a vigorous physical therapy schedule to learn to walk again – he was an athlete – college football and wrestling, he improved his speech and now at the two year surgery mark he is RUNNING and learned to drive again! During college at St. Lawrence, Jim was a writer and although his early career was centered in Boston in the financial arena, he has always loved to write and has wanted to write more. When I told him, off the cuff, about the Dan’s Papers contest, he was instantly interested. He became obsessed with writing – so much so his in-laws bought him a new laptop to write on. For the past few months since the contest was announced we’ve seen SUCH improvements. It truly has had a profoundly positive impact on Jim’s life. His ability to think abstractly combined with his sensitivity and marked imagination and sharp memory are things that we were not sure still existed until this contest. I honestly want to thank you for this. I would have never thought two years ago I would be writing this – I never thought even one year ago that this could be possible for him. Thank you for lifting his spirit and inspiring him. It’s magical and miraculous to experience as his very concerned baby sister. We will both be attending the reading on August 25. I’d love for both or either of you to meet him. I know it would mean so, so much. Thank you for reading this. Much love and admiration. Xoxo, Victoria Cooper

Shopping with the Stars By GINA GLICKMAN - GIORDAN

My absolute favorite morning show TV host, Ms. Kelly Ripa had nothing to worry about this year at the 15th Annual Super Saturday designer garage sale in Watermill at Nova’s Ark Project. Not only did the event weather the storm but the shopping proceeds broke the record this season and raised more than $3.6 million dollars to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund! At the start of the event, the hard-working host for the past seven years, Kelly Ripa was genuinely “nervous” the rain would put a damper on OCRF proceeds. Ripa said, “I feel like I may have to step up my shopping game. This event counts on a sheer number of people sticking around all day till the sales happen at the end.” Despite the weather, several celebs came out to support a worthy cause including; Mark Feuerstein, Tiffani Thiessen, Matthew Settle, Beth Stern, Jonathan Cheban, Diem Brown, Jessica Hart, LuAnn de Lesseps, Jill and Ali Zarin, Heather Aviva Thompson, Drescher, Carole Radziwill, Veronica Webb, June Ambrose, and Shoshanna Gruss. Aside from supporting OCRF the buzz between the clothing racks was how Twilight star Kristen Stewart was all over the headlines Kelly Ripa after being caught cheating on her boyfriend, Rob Pattinson with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.” Several famous faces had something to say about the recent Hollywood scandal. Royal Pains star, Mark Feuerstein revealed, “Best thing you can do is communicate. When I committed to my wife for my life, I meant it.” Ripa said, “I am amazed at the amount of attention it’s gotten. They are so very young.” Ripa has 3 kids and married to her husband Mark Consuelos for more than 16 years. Kelly joked how she keeps her marriage alive, “At the end of the day, where else are we going to go? Its desperation that keeps us together.” Howard Stern’s main squeeze and gorgeous wife of four years, Beth Stern commented on the breakup, “They are both so young. I don’t look at it as a horrible mistake. Didn’t we all cheat on boyfriends when we were really young?” Designer Isaac Mizrahi agreed with Stern, “There are no kids involved. It’s in their best interest to fool around! I like that she cheated. I’m all about the girls cheating!” This Saturday in the Hamptons is a biggie when it comes to charity events. It’s the 3rd Annual Apollo in the Hamptons at Ronald Perelman’s home with special guests Usher and Jon Bon Jovi. The (ARF) Animals Rescue Fund of the Hamptons annual Jewels of Summer Gala at the Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club will honor London Jewelers President Candy Udell. Chuck Scarborough is set to MC. For tickets go to or log onto if you can’t make it in person. The Wild Rescue Center of the Hamptons is hosting a ClamBake in Southampton. Best Buddies International will host their annual Triomphe Hamptons Gala at the home of Anne and Jay McInerney. Plus, the annual Authors Night in East Hampton chaired by Alec Baldwin and Barbara Goldsmith.

“Wild” Times By Emily hart post

For more events happening this week, check out:

One of my favorite events of the summer is the Family Day for Einstein College of Medicine – called the Wild, Wild West Carnival. I have been going lots of years and although the activities I do are different, as I get older, I always have a great time. This year I went with my friend Hailey. We got there early and started with some carnival games, which we both won. Then we did a potato sack race and Hailey was so much faster than anyone. I don’t know how this will help her after college, but you never know. I am not a fan of Justin Beiber, but there sure were others who love him. The meet and greet with Justin was at $9,000 when I saw it last. We played sports, did a car racing game, which I won, had lunch, rode the mechanical bull and met Larry Johnson who played for the New York Knicks. We did see Liz Gillies but the line to meet her was so long that we did not get to say Hi. Got a party coming up? Want me to cover it for my column? Email my dad and maybe we will be there.

A New Chef at Race Lane in East Hampton


popular restaurant in East Hampton, Race Lane, elevated a man from Nepal working there as a sous chef (second chef) to Executive Chef in June and the results have been spectacular. I have always thought there are two kinds of excellent chefs here on the East End, those who can make the standard dishes stand out (think the Palm for steak, Nick & Toni’s for their chicken, The Plaza Cafe for fish) and there are those who can combine flavors to make new and spectacular dishes. We ate at Race Lane in East Hampton for the first time this season last Saturday night, and we discovered the creative work of Chef Nimesh Maharjan. How he came to be here in the Hamptons from Nepal is quite a story. But first let me tell you what we ate there on Saturday night. For an appetizer, I had a classic Caesar salad with romaine, white anchovies and thin Parmesan slices and this was done very well, but this is not what I am talking about. My wife had Squash Blossom, which consists of a crispy fried squash peel stuffed with ricotta, red pepper coulis and pistachio avocado puree. You never heard of this before. Neither did I. It was sensational. Then came watermelon gazpacho, a soup with red balls of watermelon floating on the surface of the soup and roasted walnuts on the bottom. As a centerpiece there was a scoop of what seemed to me to be strawberry sorbet, which was topped with a tiny basil and cracked black pepper. Unreal.

Restaurant Review: Osteria Salina


headed to Bridgehampton last Thursday to meet friends for dinner. We met at the new hot spot Osteria Salina (formerly Copa) on School Street. We wanted to see what all the buzz is about. We chose to eat at an outdoor table. It’s like a bit of European living along this side street…you can gaze at the passersby and at an unending panoply of stupid parking tricks. With its bevy of handsome servers, there’s always a nice view. By 8 p.m. the joint was jumpin’, every table was filled. Is it authentic Italian food? Oh yes, it’s Aeolian and Sicilian. Predicted by many in the industry as the next big thing – Sicilian food is not heavy, it just plays a heavy on TV. Dinner starts with the passing of a huge platter of fresh cucumber chunks, generously peppered. We were invited to take as many as we liked and we did! Insalate, Antipasti, Primi, Secondi, Le Verdure…Dolci. Our server Michael assured us that we could order whatever we liked in any order. Copa is history but the extensive wine list remains intact, including local faves Wolffer, Channing Daughters and Grapes of Roth. My dining partners, Dee and Cath, started in with Italian red wines. I was in the mood for tap water. I passed on the bread and extra virgin olive Bursting with color inside and out! oil to save room for the main events. Osteria’s yes to Balsam Farms’ carrots. Ah, sweet corn season. “August Menu” is far from “august.” I started with a Salate Timoteo of endive, The corn here is not served on the cob but freshly radicchio, arugula, cherry tomatoes and Gorgonzola. cut and cooked in olive oil, salt and pepper, very Opposites attract…in my mouth. This salad achieves sweet indeed. I ate it with a soupspoon. Dee went for the Polpetta. She was quite taken a remarkable balance between the bitterness of the leaves and the natural sweetness of the tomatoes with these meatballs and their pomodoro sauce and

Pecorino Siciliano. She defined them as “yummy, so smooth.” Then she had the Mezzi Rigatoni alla Siciliana of eggplant, tomatoes, olives, buffalo mozzarella and basil. “Delicious” was all she could tear herself away to utter. Cath got rolling with Charred Octopus with gigante beans, lemon oil and a load of thinly sliced carrot. She said “Mmm, mmm!” then ordered the whole fish, which she found tender and sweet. With food this good Osteria Salina could afford to skimp on dessert – but lucky for us, they DON’T. Thank you, Chef Cinzia Gaglio. An American who spent every summer with family in Italy, Gaglio says that her life has always been about the slow food movement. Yes, she even makes the cannoli shells! Dee tried a Cannoli Siciliani of cow’s milk ricotta and chocolate with pistachio powder. It comes in a lovely presentation – goodness pouring out of both ends…she also enjoyed a decaf cappuccino, which she deemed “delicious, not too strong or bitter at all.” I tried to be good by ordering the Melone Assorti, a generous helping of fully ripe, luscious honeydew and cantaloupe…but then we decided to share a White Cherry Crostata. Wow, so this is what crostata is supposed to be like – tender crust, pudding, ripe, sweet fruit and a dollop of whipped cream…I could have eaten the whole thing, even at this advanced stage of overeating. Cath indulged in a big slice of the Torta degli Angeli of cow’s milk ricotta and mascarpone. She exclaimed, “IT’S SO SMOOTH AND CREAMY YOU HAVE TO TRY IT.” I concurred. S. Dermont

and olive oil. And then there’s the Gorgonzola… “Secondi” for me was Oven Roasted Farm Fresh Chicken with Balsam Farms’ carrots. When you see Amagansett’s Balsam Farms on a menu, you know you’re in the right place. Balsam Farms’ famous sweet corn was also listed – so I ordered that too. My chicken was cooked to tender, moist perfection with the slightest hint of…ginger? The thinly sliced, fried onion on top lent interest. Those carrots! Always say

Aah, Summer Corn is Still in Season By silvia lehrer

Makes 8 to 10 servings

SUMMER VEGETABLE SAUTE Prepare this do-ahead vegetable sauté and you will be glad you did.

3 to 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 red onion, finely chopped 1 clove garlic, finely chopped 1 fennel, trimmed, cored and thinly sliced 2 ripe local tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced 1/4 cup cold tap water 2 zucchini, trimmed and thinly sliced 1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano (not powder) Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 1 cup fresh corn kernels, about 2 ears corn 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley 1. In a large 12-inch skillet, heat the oil over medium heat and add the onion and garlic and sauté for about 3 minutes until onion is translucent, stirring occasionally. Add the fennel, and stir to cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Then add diced tomato and stir to mix and continue to cook for two minutes or so. Add water and zucchini and cook at a medium-low simmer for about 8 to 10 minutes until zucchini is tender. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper to taste, and the oregano. (Remember the cook must always taste.) Finally add the corn and stir-sauté for 5 to 7 minutes. Add parsley and simmer for another 10 to 12 minutes or so and taste for final seasoning. Note: The recipe makes a fair amount, about 2 quarts. I don’t recommend freezing. Enjoy the dish straight up with family and friends. You can also fold some of the leftover mixture into a tortilla with a bit of grated cheese for tacos, or just give some to an appreciative neighbor.

1. Melt butter in a sturdy non-stick skillet. When butter foam subsides, put in the tortilla, sprinkle cheese on one half of the tortilla then top with vegetables. Fold over second half of tortilla and cook for about 2 minutes. Flip the tortilla and cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer; transfer to a dish. Repeat with second tortilla and serve.

Summer The Way You Remember It —

Bidgehampton Bridgehampton



I dream and patiently wait from one summer to the next for the first fresh corn from our local farms. I shall never be accused of eating corn on the cob off-season or caught selecting ears of corn off supermarket shelves at any time of the year. To do so would be to abuse my taste buds. I love corn to distraction and for the first few weeks of its arrival I delight in eating it in messy splendor; the tender, milky kernels dripping with sweet melted butter and a dash of sea salt. We’ve been eating local, fresh corn straight up for a month or so, and now, for a bit of variety I’m ready to play and take the kernels off the cob. Yes, there’s a long list of ingredients in my summer vegetable sauté but the recipe can be made ahead and, even days later, the tasty leftovers can be reheated and put into an omelet or whole-wheat tortillas for delicious tacos. Team corn off the cob with sugar snap peas and scallions with fresh lobster chunks and you have one heck of a summer salad. Ideally corn should be purchased early in the day so that it does not dry in the warm sun. With the variety of corn planted at different stages, happily local corn will be into October – and then I will patiently wait for its return to our farm fields, the following summer.

By aji jones

4 to 5 ears of corn Kosher salt 1/2 pound sugar snap peas 1/3 cup chopped scallions 2 tablespoons basil ribbons* 1 1/2 tablespoons snipped chives Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 1 1/2 tablespoons sherry vinegar 2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 pound cooked lobster meat, cut into chunks 1. Cook the corn in salted boiling water for 2 minutes then lift out corn with tongs to drain on paper towel. Blanch the sugar snap peas in the same water the corn cooked in for 1 minute. Drain and dry on paper towel. 2. When corn is cool enough to handle, stand upright at the wide end in a large bowl and cut down on the kernels into the bowl with a medium slicing knife. Add the sugar snap peas, scallions, basil ribbons and snipped chives. Season with salt and pepper; dress with vinegar and oil and toss gently to mix. Taste to adjust seasoning as necessary. Can be prepared ahead to this point. Refrigerate covered in a suitable container. 3. When ready to serve, add the lobster pieces and toss to mix. Taste to adjust seasoning if necessary before serving. *To cut basil “ribbons,” stack fresh leaves of basil then roll up like a cigar. Slice across the leaves to cut into ribbons.

Restaurant Review: Southampton Social Club


ow about this for an editorial snack: The Southampton Social Club (SSC) is not just a nightclub. While my prior perception of the Elm Street locale centered around its ability to create a Hamptons nightlife scene, a recent visit revealed that they have also set the bar high for a welcoming, fine dining experience. Walking into the Southampton Village locale on a warm July evening, my family and I immediately bee lined for a table out back. We were pleased to find that the Social Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grounds are like a wellmanicured Hamptons backyard. Casual, functional and dotted with hydrangea. The dining scene is inviting, lest I forget to mention that the Social Club is not a â&#x20AC;&#x153;clubâ&#x20AC;? in the sense that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exclusive. The $30 prix fixe, with its abundant menu, is key to squashing any misconceptions the name may give. (Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available until 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and all evening Sunday through Thursday.) We started with some drinks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my dad was pleased to see that his no nonsense Guinness was not only on tap, a rarity in these parts, but topped off with the Social Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sâ&#x20AC;? logo written in foam. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Experience from years of pouring,â&#x20AC;? explained the bartender. Can I be so lucky to return on St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day and find a shamrock on top of mine? I went with the Whispering Angel Rose, a light French rendition of the classic wine. We stalled on ordering, content to sip, soak in the scenery and chat with Chef Scott Kampf. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;transplant local,â&#x20AC;? he talked to us about his time on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iron Chefâ&#x20AC;? with Bobby Flay, his culinary relationship with the New York Giants â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he caters their tailgates! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and his charitable work with the Breast Center at


Southampton Hospital. Chef Kampf started us off with a smorgasbord of eight appetizers, which includes most of the menuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s options. The Social Club offers an appetizer platter and a dessert platter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which we sampled later â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for tables of four and up, as a part of its regular dining options. The emphasis at the Social Club is on healthy foods â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a quick glance at the menu reveals light but flavorful dishes, local and organic ingredients. Among my favorites: The Edamame & Chickpea Hummus, which is made with roasted garlic & citrus with kalamata olives. And, get this, there is no added oil in the hummus. The only juices are from the chickpeas. Hemp flatbread is the vehicle to transfer this into your mouth, making the appetizer decidedly vegan. But fear not, readers who have a negative epicurean perception of â&#x20AC;&#x153;vegan:â&#x20AC;? Flavor is not compromised. After the hummus, I moved on Burrata Caprese to the SSC Lobster Rolls â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a lobster salad sandwiched in between two halves of a toasted croissant. If a lobster crawled into a French patisserie, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think he would have any other choice than to beg the baker to steam him up and throw him onto a croissant. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how good this dish is â&#x20AC;&#x201C; savory, light, buttery, flaky. Then, there was the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake, which gained my sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I-go-to-school-in-Baltimoreso-I-know-about-crabsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; seal of approval. It paired well with the Burrata Caprese â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thick cuts of local heirloom tomatoes and a puffy, creamy Burrata cheese. Made from mozzarella and, yes, cream, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

flown in fresh from the motherland (Italia). In short, the appetizer platter is the perfect introduction to a Hamptons evening: a complement to drinks and girl talk, a meal before grabbing a movie, a stop after getting off of the train... For an entrĂŠe, I went with the SautĂŠed Lobster Capellini with grilled artichoke hearts in a caviar chive lobster broth. Though the pasta-to-lobster ratio was a little less than what I would have wanted, the sauce was very light. A definite perk, as I needed to save room for the dessert, after all. My sister went with the Charred Vegetable Napoleon, which I happily sampled, as she turned her back on more than one occasion. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made with layers of grilled summer squash, zucchini, chanterelle mushrooms, eggplant and tomato, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s served with organic red quinoa and heirloom tomato reduction. No meal would be complete without dessert, and Chef Kampf brought out a platter of four of his creations: white chocolate mousse, Juniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deconstructed cheesecake, coconut crème brulee and a Tatewich, a chocolate chip ice cream sandwich. Without going into detail on how decadent and utterly delicious each one of these desserts are, suffice it to say that the Tateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creation was my favorite. French vanilla ice cream between my favorite cookie (with chocolate fudge and caramel crème). So simple, yet so genius. K. Laffey

Long and Short of This Season’s Rental Market


ummer in the Hamptons isn’t quite what it used to be, at least as the rental market is concerned. Back in the good ol’ days people would rent for the entire season – from Memorial day to Labor Day. Full season rentals provided a constant escape from the dreaded horror of New York City summers. The rentals were more like second homes as opposed to vacation spots. As of late, however, the rental game has changed. The season has become increasingly divided between these two holiday bookends that have come to define a Hamptons summer. It has also been expanded to include September, a tranquil (and cheap) month that has become appealing to many renters seeking a good deal. Susan Breitenbach, a top real estate agent for Corcoran, says, “the off-season has become very popular, people love to come out here in the fall and pick pumpkins with their kids.” Overall, renters are now looking for short-term offers. People want a house for a month, a week, or even just a weekend. The once standard three-month rental season is growing rare. Katherine Dykstra of The New York Post reported on this issue a few weeks ago. She noted that although brokers started to observe the trend in short-term rentals a few years ago, it has become much more pronounced this season. But what does this actually mean? For one, it means that as untouchably rich as the Hamptons seem to be, the real estate market can still be affected by the changing economy. When

times are tough, people spend their money with greater caution, making sure nothing is wasted. When renting a house for the entire season, you are essentially signing a contract that says you will come out to your rental house every weekend. With

periods can be both good and bad for landlords. If a homeowner has three or four different renters over the course of a season, then they have to deal with turning over the house three or four times. This can be a serious pain, especially as the size and price of a house increases. Also, with more renters the house is susceptible to damage as well as other difficulties associated with transitioning between renters. On the plus side, however, if a homeowner wanted to jet off to Europe for a couple of weeks, renting out their house for a short period of time could fund the entire venture. Renting your property for less than two weeks avoids substantial capital gains taxes that would be faced when renting for a longer period. Still, as Dykstra reports, many homeowners have been reluctant to break up the season, but with the demand for short-term rentals steadily increasing, they may not have a choice anymore. Renters, on the other hand, can benefit greatly from the changing structure of the season. As the summer moves into mid-August and houses remain available, brokers are likely to loosen up their prices. Now, it is never too late to rent a house out on the East End. And, according to Breitenbach, there are many rentals in all price ranges still available. While this new structure may come with its difficulties for landlords and real estate brokers alike, they are ultimately forced to adjust to meet renters’ demands. For renters, however, the Hamptons are becoming increasingly accessible. More people can have a piece (albeit a smaller piece) of the Hamptons pie.

Summer home or weekend home?

this structure, every day you miss is a large sum of money wasted. With short-term rentals, it is much more likely that you will use your house to its fullest extent while you have it (and then go back to work once your rental period has ended). Dividing up the season into these short-term
