Trouble Over Amagansett

Weather Terror Experts are Wrong. It’s Not Hurricanes, it’s Lightning &Tornadoes By Dan Rattiner Earlier this year, the Colorado State University hurricane forecast team — from safely up on high ground — issued its predictions for this year’s hurricane season on the East Coast. They said that it would be “above average,” with about eight hurricanes scheduled to go through this area, of which four would be major hurricanes. They’ve been totally wrong every year for the last five years, but since we haven’t had any hurricanes, they say we are due for a big season. I beg to differ. My prediction — and I am an amateur who is simply observing the facts as I see them — is that no hurricanes will make landfall on the East Coast this year at all. During the last five years, how many major hurricanes have hit here? None. How about along the coastline of the Gulf of Mexico. Maybe a hundred? What is wrong with Colorado? It used to be the other way around. Just one or two in the Gulf of Mexico. And the rest along the eastern seaboard. It’s quite apparent that all the hurricanes that form in the Atlantic get sucked in under the big Florida peninsula to rattle around there until they hit something. We’ve had New Orleans. We’ve had Honduras. We’ve had Texas. It’s like when you have a casement window and a fly is on the screen. If you raise the window, Dan Rattiner is the founder of Dan's Papers. His memoir, In the Hamptons: Fifty Years With Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Billionaires and Celebrities is currently available wherever books are sold. It makes a great gift for houseguests.

SURVIVE By Dan Rattiner Keeping yourself safe, or as safe as possible, from lightning, thunder and tornadoes is a whole lot different from keeping yourself safe from hurricanes. So here’s what you need to do. THUNDER No worries. Count slowly to 10, and each number you count between the lightning and thunder will be one more mile that you are from it. If you can count to 20 for that interval, your hearing is far better than mine. Unless you’re a dog, thunder can’t hurt you. TORNADOES The best place to sit out a tornado is in a reinforced concrete underground shelter. Next best is a basement, preferably a concrete basement, and preferably in a small room in a concrete basement where debris is least likely to fall on you. Sit under a heavy object such as a strong table, lean forward and clasp your hands together over the back of your head. Tornadoes almost always come from the southwest, so try to get yourself in the northeastern part of your basement. The worst place to be in a tornado is in your car. If you see or hear one coming, pull off the road, get out of the car and lie flat in a small ditch. Mobile homes are no good either. If you have time, get out of them and into another place as described above. If you are in a building that does not have a basement, follow the above procedures on the (continued on page 24)

the fly gets caught up between the two windowpanes. After a while it hits something. Finally it dies. That’s what Florida is doing for us folks in the Northeast these days. Oh, we’ve had a few hurricanes form up in the Atlantic north of Florida that would be capable of making landfall here. But they don’t. They go charging up parallel to the coast and, about a thousand miles out at sea, disappointed at not having hit anything, they peter out. Is this a passing phenomenon? I don’t think so. I think this is a whole change in the weather patterns caused by global warming. The ice packs are breaking up in the Arctic. They’re breaking off the shelf in the Antarctic. Why not a modest change in hurricane direction? The real problem that has now sprung up here, at least in the Northeast, are these vicious thunder and lightning storms. The skies darken, all hell breaks loose — with the last one we even had hailstones — and 15 minutes later it is all over. We’ve had at least six in the last eight weeks, at least two of which seem to have been accompanied by tornadoes. One was on Monday. Lightning has struck houses and melted electric appliances. In East Moriches, a lightning bolt came through the chimney and melted all the linoleum tiles in someone’s basement after ruining all the appliances. We’ve had people killed standing under trees. We’ve had second-degree burns on people on golf courses. We need a National Lightning and Thunder Institute, not a university hurricane forecast team. Maybe they can build one in Vancouver for those of us on the East Coast. (continued on page 24)

lowest floor. Hallways are best. Tornadoes can come at anytime, anyplace — just listen for a strong wind or whine or whooshing sound. And move fast. Never try to outrun a tornado. LIGHTNING Unfortunately, there is no best place to be during a lightning storm. It hits anywhere. The idea is that wherever you are, you should try to be clear of the mechanism that conducts the lightning down from the top of the structure into the ground. Staying in homes or buildings with metal piping, electrical wiring or metal gutters and metal lightning rods on the roof is your best bet to survive a lightning strike. Lightning will travel through the electrical, phone, plumbing and radio/TV reception systems, metal wires or

bars in concrete floors and walls. Don’t be near any of that. Most importantly, do not be on a corded phone during a lightning storm. Stay away from glass doors and windows, washers, dryers, stoves and concrete walls or floors that might have steel reinforcing bars in them. Do not wash dishes, do laundry, take a shower or wash your hands. You are not safe in a barn or shed. And though a car will conduct a lightning strike into the ground via the rubber in the tires, you are probably too close to the glass and metal of the structure of it. HURRICANE CABLES During the long Depression of the 1930s, there were a lot of Public Works projects for the unemployed. One of them, after the terrible lesson of the

Hurricane of 1938, was the installation of thousands and thousands of steel hurricane cables here in the Hamptons that went from bolts on the foundation of a house up and across the roof, over the shingles and then back down to be bolted to the foundation of the house on the other side. These cables were intended to keep people’s homes from flying away during a hurricane. They were never tested, and never really given a fair chance to work, because three years later, when America went to war against Japan and Germany, and the government realized that steel and aluminum were in short supply, they had almost all of these cables, as a further Works project, unbolted and taken down to be donated to the war effort. If your house was built prior to 1942, check to see if the cables are still installed. If they are, have them removed. Tornadoes have much higher winds than hurricanes, and these cables were intended to keep houses from being blown off their foundations sideways by a hurricane. Tornadoes, on the other hand, lift things straight up, and with their greater sudden force can cause both your house and basement to go flying away as a single unit. You are advised to go to a basement when a tornado comes. But do not go to your basement if it has hurricane cables. Instead, run to the basement of a neighbor’s • house.


(continued from page 21)

I have to say I much prefer the hurricanes we used to have. At least you knew they were coming and what strength they were and what to expect. There was time to leave the area if you wanted to. With the lightning bolts it’s just every man for himself and no place to hide. It’s totally random. It’s enough to make you believe in God. They’re his will, these lightning bolts. They hit the good and the bad without distinction. He has his reasons. And also they hit boats, telephone poles, trees and tall buildings. We need some help here. •

Raid at Sagg Dispersing 1,000 Happy, Chanting, Dancing People from Sagg Beach By Dan Rattiner The police raided Sagg Main Beach last Monday evening, on August 4. They rounded up about 500 people who were doing absolutely nothing other than playing music, singing and dancing as they have done every Monday night for years, and in violation of all their First Amendment rights and other civil rights, gave them tickets, hauled them off in buses and otherwise abused them, although, to be fair, no billyclubs and tear gas were involved. This is what people who called me at Dan’s Papers the next day said happened. On the other hand, here is what the police reported happened. Fifteen hundred people, drinking beer and wine, singing and dancing to bongo music and otherwise causing a very loud

and frightening commotion, were told by police officers to disperse because they were parking illegally, blocking access and egress and in violation of the Sagaponack civil assembly laws that say if more than 50 people assemble in one spot then they had to have purchased a permit to do so ahead of time and that would cost $100. No arrests were made. Nobody got ticketed. Everybody left, although a few gave the police an argument. “What are you going to do when you get to 51 people next Monday night?” somebody asked after being explained the law. “Close down the beach?” “I’ll be back next Monday drumming here,” said Richard Siegler, the founder of a Brazilian drumming group. “I just dare them to lay a hand

on me and say I have to stop drumming.” Every Monday there is drumming and celebrating the sunset down at Sagg Main Beach. Sometimes 10 people come. Sometimes 50 people come. If you happened to be nearby on Monday nights for the last few years — and there were people having barbecues, surfcasting, walking and strolling along, collecting seashells and clamming in Sagg Pond — you know this story. I was down there, too, on Monday nights quite often, by myself, sitting in a beach chair writing stories for this newspaper, watching the sun set. I would wave to the drummers. It was all right with me. Jay Schneiderman was one of the drummers, a friend of mine and a regular on the beach on (continued on the next page)

CLEANING LADY FROM OHIO HITS THE HAMPTONS By Dan Rattiner On the weekend of August 15-17, a professional cleaning lady from a small town in Ohio will be visiting the Hamptons and making the rounds to try to figure out what the Hamptons, as we know it, is all about. We need to be nice to her. She is 26-year-old Kate Bellamy from Batavia, Ohio, a town of 1,600 people. She’s almost never been out of the state of Ohio, and she certainly has no idea what the Hamptons is. So it’s our job to explain it to her. Kate Bellamy is coming here for the weekend, all expenses paid by Dennis Lynch, a New York City filmmaker with a house in East

Hampton who, along with his award-winning team, is making a full-length documentary about the Hamptons and me and my life in this place. He’s been following me around from event to event since April. And of course he’s been going off to other events, to get the flavor of this place. Every once in a while, I’ve heard him say, “I wonder what somebody from Boise, Idaho would make of all of this.” After a while, that changed to Duluth, Minnesota, and now it has emerged full-blown as young cleaning lady Kate Bellamy from Batavia, Ohio. Dennis got her by asking a

friend, one of his clients at USA Today, Gannett, to help him out by coming up with a suitable candidate. Welcome, Kate. I met Dennis Lynch last autumn when I was writing a story on my laptop for Dan’s Papers on Sagg Main Beach, and this handsome man in his late thirties came over to introduce himself. He told me that he was looking to try his hand at making a documentary about somebody, and he thought he had found his target. “Who?” I asked. “You,” he said. “You’re the King of the Hamptons.” (continued on page 45))

DAN'S PAPERS, August 15, 2008 Page 26 www.danshamptons.com (continued from previous page)

Monday nights. He plays the bongos. He’s also our County Legislator. Before that he was the East Hampton Town Supervisor. He’s a nice guy. “You ought to come join us,” he often told me. But no, I preferred them in the background, a nice thumping accompaniment to my writing. As the sun would set, it would make me think of savages and cavemen and other primitive people. Meanwhile, I’d enjoy the smell of burgers cooking over grills as people had beach parties nearby. And I’d enjoy the surfers, and I’d enjoy the surfcasters who often came down after six in their pickup trucks to throw lines in the ocean for stripers and blues. It was a nice scene. Remember the famous saying from Yogi Berra? Nobody goes there anymore because it’s too crowded? That is pretty much what happened to

drumming at Sagg on a Monday night. It got mobbed. I think everybody involved with the drumming meant well. But the word had gotten out. Way out. On the second Monday in July of this year there were maybe 100 people down there. On the third Monday in July there were 200. And now there was some Brazilian drumming group that had hooked up with Jay & Company. And the drumming went on and on. It no longer just went on at sunset. Sunset now meant “light the torches.” And now the event had a name. Samba Boom. You see where this is going. On the third Monday in July, I went down there to write and watch the sunset and from one end to the other it looked like the big top at the

Cole Brothers Circus to the Stars. I turned around and went out on Peter’s Pond Beach, the dirt-road beach to the east. I could still hear them, three miles away, from down there. And I still enjoyed it. Though I did think that others, between here and there, might not. On the third Wednesday in July we had our regular editorial meeting for the following week’s issue of Dan’s Papers. “Have you seen what is going on down at Sagg?” somebody asked. “We ought to write a story about it.” “If we write a story about it,” I said, “there will be a thousand people down there next Monday night. That will be the end of it.” So we didn’t write about it. The fourth Monday in July I didn’t go down there at all. But I had a pretty good idea of what went on. Incidentally, by this time, snow fencing had been set up at the entrances to the beach by environmentalists, announcing that piping plovers were nesting on the beach there, so please be careful, and please be quiet. They are an endangered species. They are probably an endangered species with a permanent ringing in their ears today. The thing is that if the drumming people wanted to do this on one particular Monday night during the summer, as a single event, with 300 or 400 people, or even a thousand people, I bet it wouldn’t be a problem, if they were done by 9 p.m. But every Monday night? Once a summer between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. on a Sunday afternoon, Dan’s Papers has a big kite fly on Sagg Beach. Sometimes we get 500 people. And we have fun. But that’s it. And in recent years, as with everybody, we have to get a permit to do this. This year the kite fly is August 17. There’s just too damn many people in the world is what it is, if you ask me. When I was born there were two billion. Now we’ve got six billion. And it’s just a little more than half a century later. It’s true we have to put them somewhere, but (continued on page 44)

What’s a Woman? Olympic Officials Try to Find Out – Genetically, Physically, Hormonally By Dan Rattiner One of the little-known stories about the 2008 Summer Olympics is the continuing attempts in Beijing to tell the men from the women. You don’t want men competing as women. And the honor of entire countries is at stake. So it is very important. But would it surprise you to know that nobody has ever accurately been able to do this? Well, they keep trying. And in Beijing, just as in Sydney and in Athens before, there is a big lab set up to test the female athletes. It is staffed by endocrinologists, gynecologists, geneticists and even psychologists. Yet even with all that, even with what we now know,

even with our going to the moon and back, nobody knows for sure if they are getting it right. The Olympics, as you know, are nearly 3,000 years old. And up until 1956, nobody thought it was an issue. The men competed in the men’s events. The women competed in the women’s events. And that was that. But in 1955, a German named Hermann Ratjen announced that in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, where Hitler was anticipating so much success, he was enlisted by the Nazis to enter the women’s high jump as Dora Ratjen. He didn’t win. But he finished fourth. The Olympic committee was astonished

when Hermann Ratjen made his confession. They scrambled to the archives to look at the pictures and films of the Berlin Olympics. And there he was, Dora Ratjen. And there was no doubt about it when they put the pictures of Dora and Hermann side by side. She was him. In the 1960s, with the Cold War raging between the Soviet Empire and the United States, a determined effort was made by the Olympic Committee in Rome to see that this would never happen again. Soviet women looked much too muscular for that committee. And so they studied the matter the old-fashioned way. The committee had all the female (continued on the next page)

SAG HARBOR: MAD AS HELL, NOT GONNA TAKE IT By Tiffany Razzano Just as Sag Harbor’s site plan review moratorium is set to expire by September, with a flurry of potential development, as well as some that are already underway, the village could see a lot of changes in the coming year. “I would say the village is looking at a perfect storm coming in from all directions,” said April Gornik, a board member for Save Sag Harbor. “This is usually a relatively sleepy little town.” Last week, Gerald Mallow, owner of the Sag Harbor Cinema, announced the theater is up for sale. In the meantime, Bay Street Theater could possibly be looking for a new home and the Sag

Harbor Inn has announced that it hopes to expand its property with 75 more rooms, a restaurant and 20 moderately priced apartments. This is on top of the recently completed Waterside Condos – which aren’t selling – and the condos currently being constructed on West Water Street by developers Michael Maidan and Emil Talel and their proposal for condos on Ferry Road. Gornik says she’s optimistic the Cinema will remain as it is: a village icon and arthouse theater that plays foreign and independent flicks not available elsewhere on the East End - and that the idea for a consortium of private patrons

to come together and take over the theater is already out there. “We very much want the cinema to remain,” she said. “It’s been receiving quite a large outpouring of interest and support from the community.” The biggest problem, she says, is the potential for more condos coming into the village, referring to the proposed Ferry Road project, since it’s too late to do anything about West Water Street Condos and Waterside Condos. There are a number of potential problems that could come from the project, including environmental concerns from sewage and water runoff, and taking (continued on page 48))

athletes strip naked and pass before a panel of doctors to prove they were women. And they did. And they all passed. This practice continued in 1964 at Tokyo. But in the late 1960s, when the Women’s Movement flourished in democracies around the world, it was decided to replace the nude walk with something else. For 1968 in Mexico City, the doctors and the Olympic Committee announced they could tell a man from a woman by examining an individual’s chromosomes. Scrapings were made

from the forearms of all the entrants. And doctors studied the scrapings under microscopes, looking for women with the male Y chromosome. Five flunked the test. But after the doctors looked at the evidence of these five individuals, they were allowed to compete anyway. The doctors said that each of these five had a genetic defect, but it would not affect performance. As if this were not confusing enough, earlier that year, a sprinter from Poland, Ewa Klobukowska, in anticipation of the Olympics, was accused of being a man by a European sports committee studying her chromosomes, even though she had passed the nude test the year before before the same committee, and she was stripped of her eligibility. The chromosome test continued on, required of every woman Olympian, for the next 20 years. In 1985, a Spanish hurdler named Maria Jose Martinez Patino was disqualified after a test revealed that she had a Y chromosome. In 1988, her eligibility was reinstated. In 1996 at Atlanta, eight female athletes failed the chromosome test but again were allowed to compete anyway because the doctors said they were just birth defects. Indeed, all of them expressed great surprise at being told they had Y chromosomes. In 2003, a physician named Arne Ljungqvist became chairman of the International Olympic Committee’s Medical Commission. An outspoken critic of all the tests that the committee was putting the female athletes through, he persuaded the committee to abandon the practice and replace it with a system where women would be tested only if suspicions were raised by other competitors. “We must be ready to take on such cases should they arise,” he said. “Sometimes, fingers are pointed at particular female athletes, and in order to protect them, we have to be able to investigate it and clarify.” And so it has been that in the last three Olympics, when questions have been asked, the testing has been done, and not only the chromosome testing but also physical examinations, genetic studies and then questioning by psychologists. So far, they’ve turned up nothing. The games continue. In spite of all efforts since 1956, when a man admitted to competing in a woman’s event, no woman has ever been disqualified in an Olympic event for being a man. But the suspicion remains. Could a man pull it off? Christine McGinn, a New York plastic surgeon, had this to say. “It’s very difficult to define what is a man and what is a woman at this point. People who look like women may have a Y chromosome and people who look like a man may not have one. It’s really very complicated.” • And so, the games go on.

Duck! As Home Density Increases, a Push for More Hunting By Alison Caporimo We’ve all seen them — bright-eyed, downy dappled creatures skipping through fields. They are the Bambis, the not-quite reindeer, the almost-horses of the Hamptons wildlife scene. Deer are everywhere, but perhaps not for long. The East Hampton Town Board is considering whether to allow hunting on some additional town-owned lands. The types of hunting considered for these designated areas will include bow and arrow as well shotgun, and big game is one of the main targets. Of course, on the East End, big game doesn’t mean lions and tigers and bears — it refers to our

caramel-colored friends. And while their disappearance may mean a decrease in nibbled-off flower buds, there will be an increase in gunshots wracking the pristine East Hampton air. There is a large population of deer in the Hamptons, a problem that new hunting privileges will not necessarily remedy. The proposal involves the expansion of hunting to eight properties, totaling about 180 new acres of land, in Amagansett and the Northwest. And according to Larry Penny, the Director of the East Hampton Natural Resource Department, the proposal may not achieve one of its goals, which is thinning the herd. “I don’t know if it’s going to limit the number of deer,” said Penny.

“Deer fertility is based on the availability of food. If food preserves are low, [the females] generally have a single fawn.” Homeowners can help limit the deer’s food supply by spraying their plants with some undesirable flavors. Fish oils and coyote urine are two options that many furious horticulturists are using on their expensive, eaten flowers. These disgusting substances, however, can only go so far. While their pungent smells and tastes are unfavorable, the deer will eat through them in order to survive. According to Bill Crain, President of the East Hampton Group for Wildlife, hunting isn’t the (continued on the next page)

AMAGANSETT MARKET REOPENS, TO HAPPINESS By Victoria L. Cooper Va-va bread! Since the grand re-opening of the Amagansett Farmer’s Market on Saturday, August 2, now operated by Eli Zabar, business is a boom. Take a stroll down to the market on a Saturday morning and you’ll see throngs of people, some who come by bike, others who walk and those who come by Jitney or car and park along Montauk Highway among the migrating monarch butterflies. Inside the screened-in porch area are some of the most delicious breads this side of the Midtown tunnel. Croissants, muffins, scones, raisin pecan twists, almond covered crullers

and pastries from beyond. There’s an area for bagel toasting and decorating (cream cheese, jelly) and coffee pouring and milking. Unless you’re buying from the farm stand (and sometimes even then if it’s not marked “local”), you can’t be sure whether that peach comes from Guatemala, the New Jersey Turnpike or somewhere along the Mexican border. But at the Amagansett Farmer’s Market you can see exactly where the food came from – Pike’s Farm, Schmitt Farms, Anderson Farms, Brieremere Farms. Store Manager Chu Brown explained, “ We put where the local produce is from because it’s the farms that deserve the

credit. I’ve had some of the sweetest watermelon since I’ve been here. Everybody needs a piece.” On the opening, Brown added, “We’re still setting up and learning about our customers. It’s a real farm here and different from the city. There are many more insects and we have to protect the food. Everybody seems to be pleased and welcoming.” Matt Shea, the cheese-meat-beverage-dairy man, operated the various stations at the market and explained that “business is great. People are really knowledgeable about cheese, and they know what they’re talking about.” (continued on page 48)

only option for thinning the herd. “We have a proposal for deer contraception,” said Crain, “and we’re trying to get the East Hampton town board to approve it.” Erwin Liu, Crain explains, works at the University of California, Davis, known for its prestigious veterinary school, and has invented a contraceptive vaccine for deer. Once the doe is vaccinated, she will not reproduce for two to three years. “The vaccination has been used on deer in Fire Island and Gaithersburg, Maryland and has been successful,” Crain said. So what is more effective, hunting or contraception? “I think it’s a terrible idea to expand hunting,” Crain said, “There’s really no evidence that it reduces deer population.” If anything, it causes a spike in the deer community. Since a doe’s reproductive cycle depends on the amount of food available to her, a decrease in deer due to hunting means less competition for food. With more food available, the deer will reproduce more offspring. While deer contraception sounds like a far better option, it comes with a price. “The contraceptive proposal that we submitted would cost $69,000,” said Crain. Despite the cost, the results would pay off. “Many residents want this to be tried out,” Crain said. Penny is also curious about this contraceptive phenomenon. “I would like to see someday some kind of birth control for deer,” he said. Crain and Penny, while on different ends of the legislative spectrum, share more beliefs than one. “Animals have feelings,” Penny said, a statement that Crain, who founded the East Hampton Group for Wildlife almost four years ago, agrees with. “Animals feel pain and they suffer,” Crain said, “They warn each other and are very protective of their young. Deer make incredible mothers.” So why do people hunt? First of all, there are families on the East End that have hunted for generations — it’s a culture. But this isn’t your father’s Hamptons. The East End of one or two generations ago could still be called “country.” With an increase in homes and population density, the area has become a bucolic suburbia. A shotgun here makes about as much sense as a shotgun in Westchester. Aside from culture, another argument for hunting put forth by hunters and residents is lying on the side of the road in the morning. Most drivers on the East End have either been in a deer-related car accident or known someone who has. But this too can be prevented by a new invention that has proven to be very effective. Strieter-Lite roadside reflectors create a wall of light across the road when cars and trucks approach the reflectors at night. Perceiving this illusion, which is only visible to deer, the animals are reluctant to cross the road, hence fewer deer-car collisions. Rather than relying on a media blitz to convince the public of the reflector’s effectiveness, The East Hampton Group for Wildlife decided to take matters into their own hands and conduct a pilot study. The group — with the help of Ron Delsener and the East Hampton Fence Company, who donated money to purchase the (continued on page 36)

“War is Over”

Shine On John Lennon’s Eclectic Art on View and on Sale in Southampton By Debbie Tuma Although the artwork of John Lennon has been touring the country for the past 15 years, with Legacy Fine Art Productions and Yoko Ono, the show had yet to arrive in the Hamptons — until now. From August 22-24, Yoko Ono and the Southampton Inn will present “Come Together, A Look Into John’s Life Through His Artwork.” For three days, more than 100 pieces of Lennon’s artwork created between 1968 and 1980 will be on display, featuring hand-signed pieces as well as limited-edition prints. There will be serigraphs, lithographs, copper etchings and aqua tints of Lennon’s drawings.

Since they were not published until after his untimely death in 1980, the majority of them are signed by Yoko Ono, with a small number of the controversial “Bag-One” series signed by Lennon. This ever-changing exhibit has been one of the highest attended art showings in America for the past 15 years, and in keeping with Lennon’s benevolent spirit, has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities throughout the world. Rudy Siegel, a producer of the “Come Together” show, said, “We know that the Hamptons is the epicenter of the summer activity, but in our experience, it’s been tim-

ing. We wanted to come in the high season, but have never been able to get the availability or right place — until now, at the Southampton Inn.” He said he’s hoping all the “Lennonheads and Beatles freaks” will come out to the show. Yoko Ono said she rarely attends her husband’s shows on the road, “because there are too many of them.” But she said although she doesn’t expect to be in the Hamptons, she’ll “be there in spirit.” “I have been out there several times in the past,” she recalled. “John and I used to rent a house in Montauk, during the late 1970s, and (continued on the next page)

WORKFORCE HOUSING: PUT IT IN OR PAY UP By Ian Stark Governor David A. Paterson signed the Long Island Workforce Housing (WFH) Act Wednesday, designed to boost the region’s supply of affordable homes. Sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) and Assemblyman Robert Sweeney (DLindenhurst), the legislation (entitled Assembly Bill 9881-A/Senate Bill 6823-A) provides developers applying to build five or more residential units with “density bonuses” of at least 10%, or other incentives, in exchange for setting aside at least 10% of units of “affordable workforce housing” — defined as housing for individuals or families at or below 130% of Long Island’s median

income. However, if builders choose not to construct the required affordable housing, a payment to the Long Island Housing Partnership is necessary for each non-affordable unit — a fee that must be equal to two times the localized median income for a family of four on Long Island. (In cases where the fee exceeds the appraised value of the space, the fee equals the appraised value of the lot.) The WFH Act has received bipartisan support — it was sponsored by every member of the Long Island delegation from both major parties — yet there are some in the greater community who feel there is more to add before the legislation can be considered complete in its ability to guar-

antee reasonably priced living quarters. One partial critic is County Executive Steve Levy, who does feel that while the WFH Act will result in the construction 100 to 200 new units of housing yearly, he needs to push a second proposal that would establish requirements concerning how much housing belongs in any given community, and to create further building incentives from the government. In a statement to the press, Levy explained why he feels there are still shortcomings: “The bill is good conceptually, and it is a good message that we’re sending, though we must remember that most towns have already imple(continued on page 50)

Lennon and Ono drawing in their NYC apartment

Although both Ono and Lennon included social themes in their art, she said, “John’s theme was mostly about peace and love — he wanted to convey the message that the family and love is important, and translates into world peace.” She also recalled how her family used to gather in their kitchen, which was set up with a couch, TV and stereo — the gathering place in their apartment at the Dakota in New York. “John used to sit at the kitchen table and teach Sean how to draw, and he made many drawings for him,” she said. Some of those drawings, done during the last two years of Lennon’s life, entitled, “Real Love,” are in the upcoming show. They include animal-oriented children’s drawings of crabs, ducks, fish, frogs and pigeons. Other works in the show include some of the controversial “Bag-One” suite signed by Lennon in 1970, which were 14 drawings that he gave to Ono as a wedding gift. During the early ‘70s these pieces toured the world, and seven of them were considered so erotic that the police raided the exhibit in Chicago, London and Toronto. “We’ll have some of these for viewing and for sale in this upcoming show in Southampton,” said Siegel. Also in this show are selected new releases of Lennon’s work, including his most recent release, “United We Stand,” a simple sketch of Lennon’s and Ono’s faces together, encircled in a heart.

What Polo? Come Now, Do We Really Need All Those Horses? Alison Caporimo Even though the rain washed out the polo field at the Bridgehampton Polo Club two weeks ago, the “show” went on. With Jimmy Choo heels sinking into the mud, scantily clad ladies walked the grass as if it were a red carpet. And with a DJ spinning the latest hits in a nearby booth and waiters doling out glasses of champagne, the glamorous guests seemed to have forgotten that there were pastures filled with manure about 100 feet away. About 200 attendees turned up to enjoy the ‘cancelled’ polo match,

with one thing on their minds: partying. “It would be great if we could get more people to focus on the game,” said John Gruen of Gruen Eyes, who has teamed up with TagHeuer for their new eyewear collection. But judging by the floating UFO-sized hats and fitted peacock dresses, polo is not the only reason to visit Two Trees Stables on a Saturday afternoon. “It’s an opportunity to wear something from the closet that you wouldn’t normally wear,” said Joan Gruen. And wear they shall. With the hopes of being spotted by polo regulars like Steven

Spielberg, Aretha Franklin and Paris Hilton, guests dare to be different. “The people who attend this event are on the evolution of style,” said Cragin Brown, a representative for Strategic Group and event organizer. And it’s not all about indulging in your closet — it’s also about adding to it. With vendors like Ralph Lauren, Gruen Eyes and Mercedes Benz flaunting their merchandise, you can exit onto Hayground Road with a new set of threads, specs and wheels. Brown said that, “For a lot of people, the party and (continued on page 42)

On the Edge: HOW COOL IS CUIL? GOOGLE TO FIND OUT By Victoria L. Cooper Can Google be out-Googled? The search engine turned active verb may have competition. Cuil, pronounced “cool,” is not only an old Irish word for knowledge but the latest search engine that promises to reach more pages on the Web than ever before. According to their “About Us” section, the site gets to “three times as many as Google and 10 times as many as Microsoft.” How cool is Cuil, and how does it stand next to the search-engine giant, Google? Some key differences between the two are not just in the content they dredge up from back alleys of the Internet but in the way the infor-

mation is presented. Cuil presents search results across three columns (now with the option of two), with a few small images drawn from the sites. It also searches semantically by related concepts, inter-relationships and a website’s coherency. On the other hand, Google presents items in a list form and crawls the Web on many, many different computers for key content tags and attributes. The major point of contention is the fact that Cuil claims to search over 120 billion pages on just 140 servers. They believe that this method will decrease the cost of running servers — less is more. Just like a car, the only way to rate perform-

ance is to take it for a test drive. Here are some common Hamptons searches on Cuil. Search #1: Montauk Monster Out of the 11 listings on the first page, nine concern Montauk fishing. “Come to Montauk for the 18-pound, monster bluefish.” Not exactly the update I was looking for. The search also includes the Wikipedia page for the Montauk Project (the series of government projects conducted for the purpose of developing psychological warfare).

“Come Together”

“Frog Pondering”

Honey,” a print of a New York City skyline, which debuted in SoHo last December, and “Come Together,” a whimsical drawing done in the early ‘60s of people waving balloons, which appeared in Lennon’s book, In His Own Write. There will be 300 prints of each for sale in this exhibit. For Beatles lovers, there will be limited-edition prints of 20 different song lyrics, including “Revolution,” “Day Tripper” and “Instant Karma.” “Some people have a greater connection with the lyrics, because that’s what they grew up with,” said Siegel. “It’s amazing to see how he wrote out the songs, how he edited them, in

his life as a song writer.” In Lennon’s giving spirit, and as with other exhibits, there will be money raised at this show to benefit the Human Resources of the Hamptons, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping those in need, without discrimination, including those who face poverty, hunger, illness or homelessness. A $2 donation is suggested at the door. Dede Gotthelf, owner of the Southampton Inn, said she is thrilled to host this exciting show of Lennon’s work. “John was my favorite Beatle because he was intellectual and socially conscious. I loved


him in college, and I almost bought one of his drawings at a show on Jobs Lane during the early ‘70s. But back then, I needed the money for college, so now, I am going to finally purchase a piece of John Lennon’s artwork, at my inn,” she said. “I am also happy to be donating some money to one of our local charities, because I want to give back to our community.” The “Come Together” show will take place on August 22, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., August 23, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and August 24, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, e-mail Lennonartwork@aol.com

Who’s Here By Debbie Tuma It’s hard to say where she’s been seen more — in the media for her recent divorce, or as a spokeswoman rallying for numerous Hamptons charities close to her heart. And what this says about this supermodel and mom is that there is a genuine, optimistic nature behind that famous smile. “My life right now is about enjoying time each day with my kids, and about always looking for the bright side and being grateful for what I have,” said Brinkley, who lives in Sag Harbor. Despite her heartbreaks in love, including her much-publicized recent divorce from architect Peter Cook, Brinkley has remained active in the public eye for the causes she believes in, from heart disease prevention, to helping children with disabilities, to helping animals, to stopping global warming, to opposing a nuclear plant in her neighborhood. “One of the things that helps me the most is giving back,” she said. “This opportunity is my most cherished possession, and I do it for things I care about, like health and helping children. As a mother of three, I feel for any parents going through problems with their kids.” On June 21, just days before her divorce trial began, Brinkley kept her promise to appear at the annual “Have A Heart Gala” for the American Heart Association, and she spoke with the media under a tent in Water Mill, with her daughter Alexa Ray Joel by her side. Dodging questions about her impending divorce, Brinkley, 54, appeared ever the poised, warm and smiling symbol of strong and successful woman. She talked about how her own mother was affected by heart disease, how she promotes health and fitness, and how she wants to help educate women about the importance of exercise and diet. Her daughter, Alexa, told the crowd, “My mom has always been there for me, my brother Jack and my sister Sailor, and I want to be there for her right now.” And after her divorce was finalized, when many people thought she would be hiding from the press, Brinkley was once again out in public, as a spokeswoman for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University, which held a “Wild, Wild West Carnival” in Water Mill on August 2. Looking radiant in a white summer dress, cowgirl hat, boots and glimmering silver jewelry, Brinkley was no stranger to the horse crowd, having been a passionate rider most of her life.

Christie Brinkley Supermodel About 20 years ago, during her marriage to Billy Joel, Brinkley was a regular at the Deep Hollow Ranch in Montauk, where she took riding lessons and also rode in the horse shows there. She and Joel attended many of these events during their marriage.

“This is my sixth year doing this for Einstein College, and today I wore my ‘hoedown dress,’” laughed Brinkley. She added that she still has a horse, and that she may take up riding again in Montauk. “But right now, I have been getting into a new way of relaxing, by taking up surfing, with my son Jack,” she explained. “I have decided to slow my life down and get away from the crowds, so we have taken up surfing in Montauk, as well as kayaking in the coves and inlets all around here.” She said they also tried the new rage of stand-up paddling on the surfboard. “When I was 13, I was a surfer girl in Malibu, California,” she said. “I used to play the Beach Boys songs over and over on my phonograph. Now I’ve dusted off my surfboard, and I am hitting the waves out in the Hamptons.” Brinkley is also active with her own design company. “I have several designs that are about to come out that I can’t say right now, but one of them is a new line of bedding, which is earth-friendly and organic, while still being stylish,” she said. “I have been into the green movement for a long time, and I try and incorporate as much green living into my life as possible. I drive hybrid cars, I installed water limits on all my showers, I let my lawn go natural, and I use only soy candles at night.” Besides launching her own bedding line, Brinkley has also been promoting the TOTAL GYM, and attributing her great body to its constant use. She has been a supermodel far longer than most other models, still posing for magazines in her 50s. Originally named Christie Lee Hudson, she was first discovered at a local post office in Paris by Errol Sawyer, an African-American photographer from New York City. The son of playwright Robert Earl Sawyer, he discovered Brinkley in 1973, and subsequently introduced her to John Casablancas of Elite Model Management. Casablancas hesitated at first, thinking Brinkley’s look was “too American.” But based on his confidence in Sawyer’s taste, he sent her on several test shoots, and soon she was catapulted into the big-time. In 1976, Brinkley signed a contract with Cover Girl Cosmetics, which was renewed for 20 years. A few years after the contract was terminated, they signed her again in 2005 to advertise mature skin products. Throughout her long and lucrative career, Brinkley has graced the covers of numerous women’s and fashion magazines, including three

“When I was 13, I was a surfer girl in Malibu, California ... Now I’ve dusted off my surfboard, and I’m hitting the waves out in the Hamptons.” At the Einstein event, Brinkley was helping to raise money for the college’s Children’s Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center (CERC), which is seeking a cure for autism and other developmental disorders, and which services 8,000 kids.

reflectors used in the study — installed reflectors on 0.6 miles of Stephen Hands Path, directly east of Rt. 114, last January. Between January 17 and June 30, 2008, no deer-related collisions occurred on the test site, compared to nine collisions on the 2.8 miles of the rest of the road and the 250 deer collisions in the Town each year. In addition to wandering or darting into streets and roads, the deer also frequent the East Hampton Airport’s runways and tarmacs. This summer, a jet struck a deer during lift off, causing concern for airport officials. To

Obviously, with reflectors and contraception methods, there are painless ways to reduce the risk that deer pose to humans on the road, as opposed to hunting, which can be painful for both deer and humans.

In addition to modeling, she has designed clothing patterns for Simplicity Patterns, and appeared on several TV shows, from the “Today Show,” in a four-part set of beauty tips, to her own series, “Living in the ‘90s With Christie Brinkley,” a daily half-hour show that aired in 1992 on CNN. Brinkley also played the “Red Ferrari Girl” in the 1983 movie, National

Lampoon’s Vacation. She has been married four times — to artist Jean-Francois Allaux (1973-1981), musician Billy Joel (1985-1994), real estate developer Richard Taubman (1994-1995) and architect Peter Cook (1996-2006). In the Hamptons, Brinkley is visibly active in local environmental groups, including Standing For Truth About Radiation (STAR), an antinuclear group that tried to close down the

Millstone Nuclear Plant in Connecticut. She is also a member of the Committee to Save Sag Harbor, which is trying to preserve the character of that village from future development. “My daughter Alexa and I want to keep our hometown from being lost to big box stores,” said Brinkley. “I am proud to say Alexa will be singing at a benefit for this group on August 30 at Collette’s Antique Barn in Bridgehampton. We love living in this special place.”

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner Entrance I live at the Montauk Shores Condominiums, which is right on the water over at Ditch Plains. It is absolutely gorgeous there. The condominium has a lot of kids running around, and a nice playground and swimming pool where, in the summer, at almost every hour of the day, children play. It is a pretty special place. A big bonus living there right now is that when I drive into the complex in my Smart Car, the kids freak out. Sometimes they start chanting at the top of their lungs while on the playground, “SMART CAR, SMART CAR!” and other times when I am going over a safety bump, they’ll run right up to the car and ask if they can check it out. I freaked one kid out. He was about eight, and asked me how fast the car could go. “The best part about this car is that it can fly, kid,” I said. “No way,” he said. “Yes. You see this button right here? If I hit

taller then me. The other interesting thing about him that does not go unnoticed is how gentle he is around his fans. He gives off extremely positive and relaxed energy for a guy that lives off adrenaline for a living. He signed an autograph for everybody that asked him, and then marched off backstage to begin what I felt was one of the most incredible athletic performances I have ever seen. The skate show was insane. Tony and his crew of skateboarders set up a huge ramp at the fundraiser and performed stunts that were hard to comprehend. Just going down a halfpipe looks impossible, let alone doing a back flip off of one. All of the skateboarders were

that the car can fly off the ground using stateof-the-art technology.” “Why don’t you fly it then?” “I would, but it is a problem because the telephone wires on the road prevent me from going up very high.” He examined the car with great curiosity and also had a look at the “fly” button I was pointing at, which I believe was the defrost button. He acted like he was going to push it. “Don’t push it! The car will take off.” His eyes widened, and I could tell he was having a difficult time processing all of this, and then he ran off. My guess was that he was going to tell all of his friends that my car could fly, starting off the conversation with, “You aren’t going to believe this, but…” I laughed to myself, and then I felt kind of old. I miss believing stuff like that. But I was happy to give this kid a sense of magic for the day. If there is one guy that actually can fly it is Tony Hawk. I checked out his fundraiser for The Tony Hawk Foundation at the Ross School in Bridgehampton. The fundraiser uses money to build skate parks around the country. Tony Hawk was actually there at the event, which offered everything from hats to skateboard decks. The most striking thing about Tony Hawk is how tall he is. I’m 6’ 3”, and when I met him, we were either the same height or he was a bit

launching themselves into the air, doing spins and flips off the half-pipe, making it look so incredibly easy. What they were doing looked so dangerous that I became nervous for everybody. At the end of the show, everybody there, including me, was a kid again and simply could not believe what we had just seen. I felt like I needed to run off and tell all of my friends about the show, perhaps starting off the conversation with, “You aren’t going to believe this, but…” Tony Hawk makes you believe that you can one day magically fly like he can. Guys like him are good to have around.

By T.J. Clemente There is a certain sound to the wellstruck golf ball. That signature clicking sound has been heard at Montauk Downs, another chapter in the saga and story of Montauk visionary Carl Fisher, who built the Montauk Manor and The Montauk Yacht Club, opened up Lake Montauk to Block Island Sound (and then dredged it), and finally, commissioned construction of a world-class golf course. Fisher took action by contracting Captain H.C.C. Tippet, a noted English architect, to design a memorable course, which opened in 1928. A

round of golf then cost $2.50 on weekdays and $3.50 on weekends. In another attempt to make Montauk the “Miami of the North,” Fisher hired Miami Beach Bay Shore Golf Club head pro Glen Adams to be the course’s first manager. The rest is pure tradition and history. Over the years many fathers, sons, mothers and daughters have teed off together during their summer vacations. In preparation for this article I found my way to the first tee to experience the tradition of golfing Montauk Downs in August. Heather Lyons at the sign-in counter told me it was a busy day and that over 350 golfers were still on the course at 5 p.m. She told me that in recent years Jack Nicholson, Darryl Strawberry, Morgan Freeman and Keith Hernandez have walked up to her at this public course to buy a starting ticket. Montauk Downs was a public course until 1978 when it became part of a state park that now has a pool, tennis courts and driving range. Kevin Smith is the present pro and runs a top-notch golf shop that also offers lessons. There is a free putting green right behind the awardwinning clubhouse, which replaced the “Colonial Revival Style” clubhouse that originally graced the entrance to the course in the 1920s. Back in 1968, Rees Jones assisted his father, legendary golf course designer Robert Trent Jones, in a redesign of the entire course. Now, 40 years later, Rees Jones is playing a pivotal role again by making changes and lengthening Montauk Downs to adjust to the high-tech equipment that makes hitting the ball straighter and farther possible. But the magic of Montauk Downs is its location — close to the ocean, and perched up on the highest grounds. Voted one of the top public courses in the world, Montauk Downs is also a walk through time. As I played the front nine, deer casually walked along with me, as did an occasional turkey. The sounds of the birds echoing through the trees that line the fairways are distinctive and timeless. The variations of the green colors the different lengths of grass have on fairways, roughs and putting surfaces is a mesmerizing sight, just like when you first enter Yankee Stadium and see that manicured ball field. The divots, the puddles, the holes and the sand traps are part of every golf course worldwide, no matter how well maintained. This year the course is very green due to the ample rain. As difficult and challenging as this course is, the mother of Dan’s Papers founder Dan Rattiner played this course regularly right up into her 90s. The daughter of Montauk Marine Basin owner Carl Darenberg, Courtney, (who now works in the pro shop along with helping her pro husband, Eric, teach) played it daily as a child. To watch Courtney and Eric play the course on which they met as pre-teens and that they have mastered as married adults is what traditions are all about. In fact, over the years (continued on page 41)

Two Women, Two Stories, One Red Leather Diary By T.J. Clemente On her way to work one morning, 23-year-old New York Times journalist Lily Koppel noticed a dumpster filled with debris that included ornate, vintage ocean steamer trunks. Climbing up into the dumpster, Koppel found amazing clothing of yesteryear and an old red leather diary dated from 1929 through 1935. Unaware of what she actually found, Koppel explored the contents of some of the other trunks, and went to work. Over time, the saga of The Red Leather Diary burst into perhaps the most important event of Koppel’s life. She began to read the beautiful prose, meticulously written by hand by a 14year-old girl, Florence Wolfson. As a shocking twist, Koppel learned that, in 1929, Wolfson lived in the same building that Koppel was living in some 75 years later. Wolfson was a girl on the verge of womanhood in a strangely modern way, although it was an older time. The diary covers about five years, without missing a day, and then stops abruptly. Reading the details and prose, Koppel develops an

unquenchable thirst to find out as much about Florence Wolfson as possible, using all the tools a 21st-century Times journalist has at her disposal — along with some luck, unusual events and instinct. Koppel’s passionate search goes on until Wolfson is located, alive, living in affluent Westport, Connecticut. The handwritten little red leather diary is reunited with the owner who made the daily entries. The emotions, questions, power of dreams and aspirations of the soul, heart and mind of a woman coming of age can then be re-examined by the very woman who experienced them 75 years earlier. Both Koppel and Wolfson relive what Wolfson thought about at the time, and juxtapose it against what actually happened over the course of her long, wonderful lifetime. The Chicago-raised Lily Koppel will bring the magic she uncovered to retell this story at a book signing at St. Ann’s Church as part of the Bridgehampton Library’s “Fridays at Five” series on August 22. (The reading is $15 and open to the public.) In a detailed narrative Koppel, a NYU graduate who spent a year at Oxford in England, will again weave through the language of a young woman with eyes wide open. With a voice that is in turn both meas-

ured and mesmerizing, Koppel will relive her own moments of discovery that changed her life, and recount the actions she took to bring this artifact back to life. Having heard Koppel speak in East Hampton, I was not truly prepared for the drama and historical significance of the work. From the first lines that she read from the book I was hooked into two truly fantastic stories. The significance of two women — two authors as it were — coming of age 75 years apart, in two different worlds yet in the same building, is a provocative starting place. Koppel and Wolfson have appeared on “Good Morning America,” “Today” and other popular shows. Reviews of the book, now in its third

hardcover printing, have been stellar. The New York Times called it “lovable.” Hearing Koppel tell of the moments when she travels to Westport and first speaks with Wolfson is powerful. At the Bridgehampton Library, the public will be able to experience what happens when chance, curiosity, determination and inspiration combine to create from words written in the past in private into a riveting, relevant book for today. The fairy tale aspects of this serendipitous adventure coupled with the glamour of the age in a time and a life are quite compelling, very unusual and not to be missed. For more information about her reading and signing on August 22, call 631-5370015.

The Numbers Are In — and They’re Screaming according to Town & Country. That’s 57 homes totaling sales of $40,786,000 in 2007, compared to 21 homes sold in 2008 for $13,341,000. In Mattituck, using the Town & Country numbers, going against the trend of the North Fork, the median home price fell 22.3% from $592,000 to $460,000. Bizarrely, in Southold Village, although the second-quarter sales of homes fell 32.5% from 40 (2007) to 27 (2008), the median price actually jumped up 9.35%, going from $535,000 to $585,000. Not so for Orient where second-quarter sales were down 25%, from 32 homes to 24 homes with the median price falling 17.7%, from $527,000 (2007) to $436,500 (2008). The same sort of activity was reported by Town & Country in Riverhead, where second-quarter sales were down 28.85%, from last year’s 57 homes (2007) to 37 homes (2008). In Riverhead the median price dropped only 5.06%, from $360,670 (2007) to 350,000 (2008). Town & Country figures are not as positive as the Prudential Douglas Elliman-financed Miller Samuel Real Estate Appraisers report on the North Fork, with their median price for homes actually dropping 6.25% from the same secondperiod number from 2007. What is mind-boggling is that the total sales volume reported by Town & Country in the second quarter of 2008 on the North Fork is down 42.26% from gross sales in 2007, dropping from $128,472,903 to $74,252,875. So what does this mean? With lower prices on

the North Fork there is more activity, and homes are either holding their value or slightly gaining some. On the South Fork, because the big median number is nearly double that of the North Fork, using the Miller Samuel numbers $970,000 to $605,000, and mortgage guidelines are tougher, the charming North Fork is becoming more attractive because it is more affordable. Samesized homes on same-sized land are less expensive. One interesting fact revealed in Town & Country’s numbers is that the number of sales of $1 million to $1.99 million homes dropped from 17 to six in the second quarter of 2008. That is a drop of 64.71%. There were no sales in the range of $2 million to $3.49 million in the second quarter, whereas there were three in 2007. That’s a 100% drop. Yet there was one reported sale in the $3.5 million to $5 million range in the first quarters of both 2007 and 2008. Prudential’s Hamptons regional director reportedly summed things up by saying, “There’s plenty of people looking, there’s plenty of activity, but they’re not serious about buying. It’s eerie — there are people out here with lots of money, but they’re not spending it.” As Professor Carrington said years ago at the George Washington University Business School concerning down markets, “Never try to catch a falling knife. Let it hit the ground, stop and then safely pick it up.”


By T.J. Clemente Wise men say facts and figures don’t lie, but numbers can be misleading — and when it comes to the real estate market these days, who can argue? With daily stories about the damage the prime mortgage mess has done to financial markets and the real estate industry, the facts and figures are ugly. In the Hamptons the median price has dropped from $1,100,000 to $970,000. However, one bright spot seems to be on the North Fork of Long Island. The Miller Samuel Real Estate Appraisers claim the North Fork median price for home sales is up 17.8% from the previous quarter, and 13.1% from last year. Town & Country Real Estate specifically mentions Jamesport, where sales (25 homes) in the second quarter this year match up evenly with the 25 of last year, with an actual median price increase from $429,510 (2007) to $445,000 (2008). The Miller Samuel report commissioned by Prudential Douglas Elliman had one bright spot for the Hamptons, noting that the median, although down from the previous year by 11.8%, actually rose from the previous quarter of 2008 by some 9.9%, going from $882,500 to $970,000 (but down from $1,100,000 in 2007). Looking closely at Town & Country’s numbers, sales on the North Fork outside of Jamesport were down in the second quarter of 2008 versus the same period of 2007. Worst is Mattituck, with second-quarter sales down a whopping 63.16%

The 60th Annual Artists-Writers Softball Game is Saturday By Dan Rattiner The 60th Annual Artist-Writers Softball game will be held in East Hampton this Saturday afternoon at 3 p.m. This is the longest continuously running sports event in the Hamptons, and if you’d like to come watch it, you’ll find it at the appointed hour on the sandlot baseball diamond behind the Waldbaum’s Market on Newtown Lane in East Hampton. There is a small admission charge, with the funds going to charity, and with it, you can be part of history. The game was first held in Wilfred Zogbaum’s backyard in Springs in 1948 with Willem de Kooning, Barney Rosset and other artists and writers in attendance. A picnic accompanied it. It was decided that it would become an annual affair after that. Sometime later, after the Spanish American War and some other conflicts, the site of the game was moved to the ball field in the center of town in East Hampton, and it has been played there ever since. It has been accompanied over the years by rhubarbs, arguments, giant homeruns, professional female basketball players, actresses and actors, dogs wandering out on the field, presidents and presidential candidates, former mayors of New York, boxing contender Gerry Cooney, billionaires, movie stars, other nefarious sorts and even, for several years, the soccer legend, Pele. Playing in it last year were Christie Brinkley, Laurie Singer, Mort Zuckerman, Alec Baldwin, Donny Deutsch, Mike Lupica, Richard Weise, Tom Clohessy, Bill Collage, B. Smith and hosts of others. Sports commentator Burt Sugar provided the commentary over a loudspeaker system. The final score was Writers 13, Artists 8. The late Roy Scheider, who for many years was the pitcher for the Artists, will be remembered prior to the game.


Also to be honored will be the memories of the 11 soldiers from this community who have given their lives in the recent wars in the Middle East. Their families, at the invitation of Congressman Tim Bishop, will be in attendance. This writer, along with a mystery guest, will again umpire the game, and prior to that, at 11 a.m. at the Lodge Restaurant on Race Lane, will read a chapter about the game from his recently published Random House memoir, In the Hamptons: My Fifty Years With Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Billionaires and Celebrities. All are welcome to that, free of charge.

there have been weddings right on the course. So having a beer after the round in the clubhouse, or smoking a nervous cigarette before tying the knot are daily occurrences at Montauk Downs. Golf balls flying through the air and landing everywhere is what golf is all about. The great Tiger Woods launches shots that sometimes land behind trees, and I bring that up because that is where most of my shots end up. Standing on a putting surface and lining up a birdie or par, only to see the ball sail by the hole and land 10 feet away is all part of the tradition of golf, and the tradition of Montauk Downs. Waiting to tee off I heard a young golfer sitting in the cart with his dad waiting to tee off ask, “Dad, is Grandpa playing with us tomorrow?” Yet another summer family vacation in Montauk, with family rounds of golf at Montauk Downs.

the atmosphere are more important to them than the polo.� A fact confirmed when many guests, upon being asked about their stance on the sport, replied with, “To be honest, I don’t really know anything about polo.� Standing in the middle of a horse field with Nacho Figueras, possibly the best polo player in the world today, standing a few feet away, one cannot help but see the irony. So, for those who don’t know anything about polo and those who sit in the bleachers to root for a favorite team, here is some information about the current polo season. There are seven polo teams competing in the Mercedes-Benz polo challenge: White Birch, Black Watch, Equuleus, Mansour, Pony Express, Heathcote and Jumerirah Culu Culu. White Birch, after winning all three of their games, nailed their spot in the finals, which took place on August 13. The Black Watch team competed against Mansour this past Monday. There was some concern that newcomer Mansour might upset Black Watch’s success. However, this concern was thwarted once Black Watch won the semi-finals and secured their position in the finals against White Birch. While the season has showcased a good deal of exciting games, it has also exposed some new talent. Facundo Pieres and Mariano Aguerre have displayed intimidating skill along with Nick Roldan of Pony Express. Adam Snow of Mansour and Lucas Monteverde of Heathcote Farm have also exploded onto the polo field. And, of course, Figueras continues to amaze spectators and fellow players alike with his skills on the polo field. “Polo played at this level educates the people who come to the game,� said Figueras, acknowledging that maybe people should keep their eyes more on the ball than that shiny new Mercedes. But with the 114-acre Two Tress Farm recently placed on the market for $95 million, there is some concern that the Bridgehampton Polo Club will lose its home base. David Walentas, the current owner of the farm, received approval from the Southampton Town Planning Board to subdivide the property into 19 lots. If Walentas follows through with his subdivision, the town will not allow public polo matches at the farm site. The property consists of two houses, an eight-unit apartment building, two indoor riding arenas, three barns, two polo fields and a tennis court. Tim Davis, a senior managing director at the Corcoran Group’s Southampton office, said that Walentas is not planning on completing the subdivision and does not want to sell the lots individually. As a frequent competitor at the matches held at the farm, Walentas wants to keep the polo field active. However, comparing mallet with wallet, he has left polo fans wondering which will prevail. For fans of polo, no more games would be upsetting. But the many who attend for other reasons will be happy to see the show go on, with or without the ponies.

here? Come on. I’m here. We don’t need anybody else now that I’m here. But who pays attention to me anyway? You wouldn’t expect to see 500 people marching up Fifth Avenue drumming, singing and dancing, would you? Not without a permit. And an argument made at the scene to the police — that this was impromptu and it just happened that all these people showed up so who is it that would sign a permit application — really is besides the point. A thousand people (cutting the difference in half) is a thousand people. And if they make a lot of noise or block access, that’s it. That Monday, the cars for the drummers and their friends completely filled the 200-car lot at Sagg Main and then spilled over onto Sagg Main Street for a half a mile and completely down and around the dead-end road of Sandune Court. Had emergency vehicles been needed to get through they would have not been able to, according to the fire marshal, who also showed up. And so that was that. The police tried to be nice about it. It was nice they let it go on for as long as they did. But what could you do. Here’s a thought. On earlier evenings at Sagg Main, I bet there were as many as 300 people out on the beach enjoying perhaps 10 different activities. Should no more than 50 be allowed without a permit? No. It’s no more than 50 in any one group. There could be six permits for the beach, each for a different crowd of 50. So others can have fun, too. Personally, I love fun. And I think that what

UPDATE This past Monday, August 11, the drummers were back, and so were the police. The police helped the people park, and when the lot was full, politely turned the rest away. They were a big help, the police. And they did the right thing. Want to go August 18? Get there early.

ought to be done is that this whole lot of drumming should be divided up into groups of up to 49 people. Sagg Main is just one among hundreds of beaches up and down the Hamptons. Going east from Sagg Main is Fowler’s Beach, then Peter’s Pond Beach, then Town Line Beach, then Beach Lane Beach in Wainscott, and so forth and so on. To the west we have Sagg Inlet West Beach, then Ocean Road Beach, then Mecox Beach, then Cameron Beach, and so forth and so on. What everybody should do on a Monday night at 5:30 p.m. is assemble at the Bridgehampton High School parking lot. There should be wooden poles with the names of the beaches within 10 miles in each direction on them, and people should assemble, up to the required 49, under each of the signs, and then they should all head off to those beaches. Before summer is out, we could have 2,000 people at 40 different beaches, all with torches and drums and beer and bonfire makers, and at most 49 to a beach and boy, could this place rock. Legally. I’d come. And I do believe, God would • hear us.

And so, beginning in April, the spring, he began following me around with his camera. You may have seen him or one of his associates — several of whom have awards, including Emmys — filming me at various events and readings. I’ve been reading from my memoir, In the Hamptons, in locations all over the Hamptons, from the shores of ponds in Bridgehampton to the grounds of the Montauk Lighthouse, and he’s been along sometimes. He’s also accompanied me to an editorial meeting at Dan’s Papers.

Billy Joel with filmmaker Dennis Lynch

And then he’s interviewed numerous wellknown figures in the Hamptons I know including Pat Malloy, who talked to him about the yachting community, Billy Joel, who talked to him about the fishing community, Mercedes Ruehl, who talked to him about the arts, Alec

Baldwin, who talked about fundraisers and parties, John Roland, who gave him the skinny on Westhampton Beach, and Chuck Scarborough, who talked about the traffic. Other interviews were done with Kim Cattrall, Christie Brinkley and others. He’s also interviewed or gone working with some locals, including, last week, the mayor of Sag Harbor, who gave him a tour of that town. His intention is to capture the full range of the Hamptons, not just the “Entertainment Tonight� version. He’s calling the film, which will be full-length and presented at film festivals, The King of the Hamptons. All together, so far, I think he’s filmed more than 100 hours of stuff. The weekend of August 15-17, Kate Bellamy will be with me sometimes and not with me sometimes, but all the time with Dennis, as we all get through that weekend with the finale of Bridgehampton Polo, various fundraisers, The Artists-Writers Softball Game and several other events. Kate will also be treated to a tour of Pat Malloy’s 193-foot yacht, the “Intuition II.� She’ll attend a Guild Hall dance performance on Further Lane, take a ride over the Hamptons in a helicopter courtesy of Liberty Helicopters, shop on Main Street, get a massage at the Spa at Gurney’s Inn, be a guest First Base Umpire at the Artist-Writers Softball game for a half-inning on Saturday afternoon, where she will be introduced by sports commentator Bert Sugar, go for a spin in a Ferrari courtesy of Manhattan Motorcars Hamptons, have Happy Hour at Cyril’s in

Kate Bellamy of Batavia, Ohio

Napeague, eat dinner at Nick & Toni’s and attend the Rock the Farm concert at John’s Lane Farm in East Hampton late Saturday night. On Sunday, she’ll go sunbathing at Two Mile Beach, take a dip in Dennis’ pool to celebrate his upcoming birthday, and then fly off to Ohio — but not before answering the question, “So, what did you think of the Hamptons?� on film. Dennis has not been wrong yet about anything. And what Kate takes back to her hometown from all of this, I guess we’ll find out when King of the Hamptons premieres next year. Anyway, here’s her picture. So if you see her, and you see a camera-person or a man with a hat with her, just smile and wave. Then just sign the release and you, too, can be one of the loyal subjects in the King of the Hamptons documentary.

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Go Fly a Kite at the Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Papers Kite Fly, Aug. 17 By Jaime Felber Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that time of the year, when the beaches are crowded, the snack-truck offerings are expensive, and the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social calendar highlight takes place. Which means itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also time for Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Papers annual kite fly on Sunday, August 17. Sponsored by Southampton Town Parks and Recreation Department, the event will take place on Sagg Main Beach, from 5-7 p.m. This event brings out the elite of the social kite-flying world, and blessedly there are no dress codes nor particular rules. All that is needed is an open mind, a good spirit and a smile. Ohâ&#x20AC;Śand a kite. A Southampton Town beach permit is not required for the festivities, since parking restrictions will be temporarily suspended for the event. In addition, the facilities will remain open later in the afternoon to make for a more comfortable experience. At the kite fly, children are the center of attention, and also provide the entertainment and inspiration. During the first hour this year there will be plenty of live entertainment, including jugglers, face painters, caricaturists and a surprise guest appearance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a little something for everyone. While recent weeks have brought tempestuous thunderstorms that postponed many big nights out here, we at Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Papers have no fear. It has been rumored that our intrepid founder, Dan Rattiner, has abilities King Canute could

only wish for, and good weather with favorable winds is expected. (Of course, should the weather not adhere to our schedule, it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be right to let all the hard work and talent go to waste, so in the event of rain, kites will still be judged and sampled on the ground.) At 6 p.m. a bullhorn will sound, announcing the beginning of the rigorous Olympicstandard judging selection. The panel of judges, hand-picked and overseen by Rattiner, will comb the beach, leaving no kite untested. Eighteen categories will be judged: Best Nautical Kite, Funniest Kite, Highest Flying Kite, Longest Tailed Kite, Most Beautiful Kite, Most Geometric Kite, Most Exotic Kite, Most Futuristic Kite, Most Graceful Kite, Most Natural Kite, Most Newsworthy Kite, Oldest Kite Flyer, Youngest Kite Flyer, Scariest Kite, Tiniest Kite, Ugliest Kite, Best Colored Kite, Funkiest Kite, Lowest Flying Kite and Best Homemade Kite. After about a half-hour of deliberating, judges will invite all participants to the judging station, where the winners will be announced and prizes awarded. The winners will also see their names in print in the following weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issue.Win or lose, at the end of the day the important part is just getting out there with your kite and your kids, and experiencing the joy that comes from flying it higher and higher, while keeping it from crashing into anyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s craft.

Blind Tasting at Le Bernardin - 2 April 2008

With Gina Glickman ßThe Jonas Brothers created complete pandemonium when they performed live at the “Summer @ Ross” event series in East Hampton this past Saturday! Little Miss Sunshine star Abigail Breslin and several celebrity moms including Kelly Ripa, Christie Brinkley, Christy Turlington and Dina Lohan escorted their kiddies to the big event. Ripa, the fashionably perky talk show host, was stunned to see the scene of screaming girls. “I have been to a lot of concerts, but I have never seen anything as extraordinary as this,” she said. Dina Lohan caravanned an entourage of friends and her youngest son, Cody, and daughter, Ali. “We brought several of their friends here today and they were very excited,” said Lohan. The Jonas Brothers are just like the new Beatles to these children, it’s adorable. It’s a wonderful cause and that’s really why we are here.”

Jonas Brothers aside, the Lohans’ appearance created quite a buzz, too! It came just days after Anderson Cooper publicly blasted Dina’s reality show, “Living Lohan,” when he co-hosted alongside Ripa on “Regis and Kelly.” Cooper stated, “The worst show that I cannot watch that I must say I have watched maybe four or five times is ‘Living Lohan.’ ‘Living Lohan’ is just atrocious. I mean, these people……Do you know anything about these people? Apparently they are quite well-known. There is Lindsay Lohan, who is apparently quite famous for doing all these sorts of things. She’s not even in the show. So, somehow her mother got a show, because of this person, who’s not even on the show. They constantly refer to this person who is never seen on the show. So, I guess people are hoping maybe this other person, Lindsay, is going to show up, but until then we are stuck with these horrific people. And there is a perfectly nice, allegedly 14-year-old-girl who looks to be about 60. No, I say that with concern and love. She allegedly wants to be a singer, and or actor-performer of some sort — a strip-tease person, I don’t know.” Ripa, who was co-hosting alongside Cooper, stayed neutral and replied, “This is what amazes me about you. This is a man right here in a nutshell that will go in the middle of a civil

There’s been lots of speculation that the Amagansett Farmer’s Market is going to wind up being “another Citarella” as many beachgoers this past weekend discussed, yet it seems that the vision Zabar has for his three-year contract with the Peconic Land Trust and East Hampton Town is to a provide the community with all the great, delicious foods from the East End. Zabar also discussed the prospect of a nightly market where farmers from the greater New York area can bring their wares.

away even more beachfront from the community. “[The developers have] shown an interest in largesse in helping the community. It would help the community if they donated it as public beach front,” Gornik said. “Wouldn’t that be spectacular? A three-story condo would completely block the view of the harbor. It would deleteriously change the nature of the harborfront.” She added, “People are saying, ‘Isn’t it so odd they’re pushing to do Ferry Road when Waterside hasn’t even completely sold?’” But don’t think the residents of Sag Harbor are going to idly sit back and let the village be overrun by new development – remember, Save Sag Harbor, a group of about 1,500 residents, started because they wanted to keep CVS and other big box stores out of the village. The recent

site plan review moratorium, which was extended in March for six months, has served a purpose for the village. During that time, the village board, with much public input, has been mulling over potential Zoning Code changes, revising the code so that it would better protect the character of the village. Public hearings on the legislation will begin soon and the board will likely adopt the changes into law by the time the moratorium has ended. All of these proposed developments would face the new Zoning Code. Southampton Town will also conduct a Sag Harbor Gateway Study, aimed at saving the stretch of Bridgehampton Turnpike that leads in Sag Harbor’s downtown from overdevelopment. The area will likely be rezoned to a com-

bination of hamlet office/residential zoning, with one development district. Already, Suffolk County is considering purchasing two parcels totaling 10.3 acres within the Long Pond Greenbelt area for preservation. Meanwhile, Save Sag Harbor continues to work to keep chain stores out of the quaint village. They’ve started a “Shop Locally” campaign, encouraging residents to shop at and support local mom and pop shops rather than run to a nearby town. “It’s not just about keeping formula-based retail (chain and big box stores) out,” Gornik said. “It’s about making sure the mom and pop stores are thriving. The question is, do we want to go the way of every other town or village in America? Do we want to turn into an extended mall or retain our character?”

Brawl at Publick House, Bouncer Dies By Alison Caporimo An altercation with a drunken partier at the Southampton Publick House in the early hours of Thursday morning resulted in the death of Andrew Reister, a bouncer for the restaurant/bar. Reister, a 40-year-old Hampton Bays native, was working his usual night shift at the Publick House on August 6 when Anthony Oddone began drawing attention. The incident reportedly began when Reister asked Oddone to stop dancing on a table. Oddone, of Farmingdale, attacked Reister, put him in a head-lock, according to witnesses, and choked him until he fell unconscious.


Many patrons tried to stop the fight and even administer CPR to a suffocated Reister. When Southampton Village Police showed up, Reister was still unconscious. Southampton Village Police arrested Oddone, as he attempted to flee the scene in a taxi, at 1:15 a.m. Oddone was charged with assault in the first degree, a felony, and was held on $500,000 bail. As for Reister, his wife and two children stayed at his bedside at Stony Brook Medical Center since early Thursday morning. Reister, who suffered severe brain damage from the altercation and was put on life support, died at 11:08 a.m.

Saturday morning. Having worked worked as a corrections officer in the sheriff’s office since April 1994, Reister was a dedicated law enforcer and worker. He also helped inmates in the Rehabilitation Unit, where he assisted in their preparation to reenter society after jail time. Oddone is now charged with murder in the second degree, which commonly draws a sentence from 25 years to life in prison. He is currently being held at Rikers Island Correctional Facility. The alleged murder is the first to occur in Southampton Village since 1988.

which, in the realm of search engines, is a drop of water in an ocean of expenses. On launch day, Cuil attempted to handle 50 million queries, which was far more than they expected. Patterson was quoted saying that the pattern of searches wasn’t what they expected. “People were looking for their names a lot,” she said. When you search yourself, the engine tries to guess what you are about to search. So I got the very predictable Victoria’s Secret. No, not today, I thought. When I typed in my full name, the results I garnered were nothing of interest, not even a historical site about Queen Victoria. The Cuil team still has a lot of work to do and until they shape up and give the people what they want, I’ll be Googling all my friends and coworkers.

Patterson then wrote a search engine used by the Internet Archives, which was sold to Google, where she then began to operate one of their engineering groups focused on ranking (the part of the search engine that picks which 10 links should appear when you search). The idea for Cuil came about when Patterson returned from maternity leave and decided that Google had become too large.

mented a 10% to 20% threshold for affordable housing.” Another group that is pleased yet insists on further action is the Long Island Association, a civic-minded business group, which has met with several government officials in the past to inspire the growth of affordable housing. They expressed concern over a “brain drain,” that is, the number of young Long Islanders who find themselves forced to move elsewhere when they can no longer afford Nassau and Suffolk counties. LIA President Matt Crosson has stated publicly that while he considers this “the most significant development to affect Long Island housing for many, many years,” it is, in his group’s opinion, “only a beginning to what needs to be done.” But perhaps the most extreme public criticism of the WFH Act has come from Southampton Town Supervisor Linda Kabot, who expresses support for the new law, but questions the possible results in her district. She had sent a letter to Governor Paterson prior to his passage of the legislation, citing the possible shortcomings she believes could arise. In an area such as Southampton, where the median income for a family of four is $97,000, any fee paid to opt out of constructing affordable housing — which would amount to $194,000 — would, in Kabot’s opinion, allow builders to then erect million-dollar properties, thus coming away with very sizable profits. She further theorizes that the collected fees would end up in the construction of housing in areas where real estate values are

lower (such as Flanders and Hampton Bays), and in effect do nothing to keep the next generation of homeowners from leaving for a lower cost of living elsewhere. Additionally, while Kabot has no criticism for the Long Island Housing Partnership itself, she feels that the Southampton Housing Authority or other groups such as Habitat for Humanity would provide greater local control over the collected monies. Since the act’s passage, Kabot has said that she would be working with State Assemblyman Fred Thiele in creating localized amendments to the law. However, while Thiele has stated that he will assist in some respects, he also offered some intense disagreement with the Southampton Town Supervisor’s stance and criticisms of the WFH Act. He believes that the East End’s towns and village leaders have been well aware of this legislation for years, and that “a diligent elected town official interested in affordable housing would have this bill on his or her radar screen.” “Supervisor Kabot has stated that the developer can choose whatever option it wants to satisfy the requirement [regarding construction of the affordable housing]. That is erroneous,” said Thiele. “It is the local government that makes that determination. The statute says, ‘such local government shall require of the applicant.’ There is nothing that gives that choice to the developer. Thus, the issues involving the fee will never come into play since the local government can always say no to the use of a fee if it is not the best option.”

But Thiele does see room for changes as well, adding that while towns can always require developers to build affordable housing when deemed necessary, he does believe that the fee option needs revision, stating, “In my opinion, the fee should always equal the appraised value of the additional lots resulting from the density bonus. This would insure that there is no windfall to developers.” Other amendments Thiele would like to see include the ability of local governments to work with other not-for-profit housing groups in addition to the Long Island Housing Partnership — an area where he does agree with the supervisor’s goals. He also plans to recommend a provision that confirms the right of local governments to impose additional affordable housing requirements over and above the state law, and furthermore to expand the flexibility for districts in how they can use the collected money for down payment assistance. While he personally feels the “fee option” is not viable under the WFH Act, he believes the option has come about with the hope of encouraging the building of affordable housing, rather than to inspire payment not to. Thiele feels strongly that this law can be administered without any of the negative consequences that Kabot has predicted, and added, “I should point out that if local governments had met their responsibility to provide affordable housing opportunities, the legislation would not be necessary. Few local governments have a good track record on this issue.”

Separately, and in another car on this train, Alec Baldwin was seen reading a script for an upcoming TV show, but his thumb was over the name. On the platform in Montauk were Paul Simon, Peter Beard and local cowboy Rusty Leaver, looking at their watches for a train that would take them, obviously, west.

were stored, to Basinoba. Apparently, scuba divers with flippers have been down there with buckets and shovels, stealing a few hundred of the tokens from the ocean floor. Their activities had gone unnoticed. However, on Saturday, a landslide of tokens in the hold of the sunken barge apparently buried Christopher Darlington of Noyac up to his waist, as he was busy shoveling. By the time three of his fellow thieves got him out, he was in a desperate condition. The Sag Harbor Fire Department responded to the call with one of their fireboats. And the Sag Harbor ambulance has taken Darlington to the hospital, where we will pray for him.

SUBWAY TO FOXWOODS ENCOUNTERS PROBLEM The subway tunnel being dug from Sag Harbor to Foxwoods in Connecticut is proceeding, but slower than expected due to a minor seepage problem. Deep under Long Island Sound now, the drillers are finding some sort of thick, black, gooey liquid seeping in from the walls. It is being vacuumed up and analyzed by a lab nearby. Meanwhile, the drilling has slowed by half.


COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S WEEKLY MESSAGE I am up in Foxwoods this week doing research on the gaming facilities there in anticipation of the arrival of the subway tunnel from Sag Harbor. This tunnel will be the second-longest underwater tunnel in the world, exceeded only by the Cross Channel Tunnel built a few years ago to connect England and France. Let me tell you, as Foxwoods will soon only be a short, 30-

minute, high-speed subway ride away from the big spenders in the Hamptons, I think the cost of this tunnel will be paid for in weeks. What a place this is. On another note, I would like to express my condolences to the Darlington family. That their son was a crook and is guilty of breaking and entering and robbery is separate from the fact that he was otherwise a nice young man. We wish him a speedy recovery.

Special Section: So You Want to Live with the Horses ...

Stone Meadow Farm in East Hampton has a stable for five horses and a barn; #4 Horse Meadow Lane in Dune Alpin has sprawling equestrian reserve views

By T.J. Clemente It’s mid-August in the Hamptons and that means horses. Along so many of the back roads north of the highway in Bridgehampton, Water Mill, Southampton and East Hampton, are the horse farms, with their white fences, green pastures, riding circles and steeple chase courses. All summer long, appropriately attired equestrian participants are practicing or just enjoying the day with their mounts. Who doesn’t enjoy driving the back roads along a pasture filled with beautiful horses? It’s as American as apple pie. So, amid the doom and gloom of some sectors of the real estate market, a peek at what’s available around the Hamptons in terms of horse properties presents the opportunity for those who are having problems with $4 plus gas and the bills on that desk at home to fantasize. Paying a visit to some of the many friendly, local real estate offices, finding help wasn’t really that easy. With business not great, no one had the luxury of time for something that wasn’t sales related. But at Brown Harris Stevens, agent Dawn Brophy took some time to point me in the right directions of what is available in terms of horse properties in the Hamptons. As expected, there were some listed for over $30 million, which, of course, I might need a small loan to purchase. Of course, if it’s stables you’re interested in, Rita’s Stables in Montauk is maybe headed for the market, but if she couldn’t make it work, who can? Perhaps it’s going to be Paddock Estates right there on Route 27 and West Lake Drive in Montauk soon. Looking at some listings, there were a few eyeopeners. If you have a mere $19.9 million to spend, what can you get? In East Hampton there’s Stone Meadow Farm, represented by Gary DePersia of Corcoran: 18,000 square feet of living space on 8 acres, and “a stable for up to five horses in an attractive barn framed by ample riding fields.” It makes you feel like picking up the phone and calling a mortgage broker.

Of course, should you feel the need to spend a bit more cash, you could go for a $30.5 million gem, represented by Prudential’s Yvonne Velasquez, Robert Kohr and Lori Macgarva – a 24 acre property. “Property includes a 8,650 sf state of the art barn with professional kitchen ... Ideal location for a spa facility, corporate retreat, or equestrian property. ” Now, honestly, if you had the dough and love horses, it is tempting. In horse country, Sagaponack, there’s a respectable $10.8 million property represented by Melissa Osborne of Prudential, with an “1850s classic Victorian farmhouse… a beautiful old barn

that has been lovingly maintained, with stalls, wash rack and a heated tack room with laundry and half-bath.” I almost feel like saying Rochester, where is my riding crop? Now, what if you want to be close to horses but aren’t into cleaning up the manure or brushing down the horses? Here’s one for you in Bridgehampton for a mere $4.3 million, listed with Cathy Tweedy of Corcoran. “On a builders acre with big open views of a 29-acre horse farm this is the perfect spot to retreat …… laze around the heated pool while you watch the horses graze (continued on page 79)

So You Want to Live in a Barn ...

A barn-style cottage in Wainscott.

By Tiffany Razzano If you’re looking to live somewhere other than a typical Hamptons cottage, you might want to consider converting the vintage barn on your property into a new home. While the quaint, rustic look of the barn can be retained and fits in well with the bucolic landscapes of the East End, high, peaked roofs and vast open spaces inside allow for the perfect setting to create an urban style loft. “One of the things that’s

nice about the Hamptons is because of the beautiful remaining agricultural land, the barns can look really nice on an old potato field,” said Ken Epworth, of Vermont-based The Barn People, who has worked on about a dozen barn-converted homes on the East End over the last 33 years. Because the barns are only one room, it’s difficult to be very creative or original with the layout of your home. However, the open space, combined with the sheer size of the room makes for a great urban loft setting. Typically, there will be one main, open living area with the bedrooms built on the loft above and the kitchen underneath. Or, you can flip it around and put the bedrooms on the ground floor and the kitchen and a living room on the loft. “A lot of people who come out here from Manhattan who live in Soho want a high ceiling and the openness of a big area, similar to what they have in the city,” said Janette Goodstein of Prudential Douglas Elliman. “It really creates a great room,” Epworth added. Epworth doesn’t just specialize in converting

A barn converted into a home in East Hampton. barns into homes, he also has an inventory of old barns, which he gets from all over the country, for you to choose from if your property doesn’t come with its own. Whether it’s a barn of your own or something from his stock, Epworth dismantles the barns and brings them back to his Vermont workspace, where he and his crew fix up the pieces and treat the wood for rot and insects. Because these structures are so old, it takes a lot of work to restore them because they’ve been worn by weather. “You might think a barn looks great from the road, then you get up close to it and see how worn down it is,” Epworth said. “You learn that not all barns are worth saving.” While Epworth and his crew work on restoring and cleaning the pieces of the barn, the foundation for it is going down on your property. When that’s completed, he then brings the barn to you in pieces and puts together the frame. The prices for these restored barns vary with each location, since it’s based on the cost of labor and construction material in that area. While the construction of the barn will cost roughly the same as construction of a new home, there is the additional cost of the frame. Epworth’s barns start at $50 per square foot, averaging at $70 per square foot. This means a 30’ by 40’ English Hay barn, fully restored and hand-washed, will cost $84,000 just for the

A Visit to a Thoroughbred Home By Mary Beth Karoll Welcome to the rambling, white-pillared ancestral hunt country home of Mr. and Mrs. Thoroughbred and their illustrious issue. Note how the iron lawn jockey is painted in the pink and green colors of the family’s racing silks. Oh, don’t bother to wipe your feet. The dirt you picked up on your tour of the stables merely adds to the lovingly worn air of patrician authenticity. After all, the slight flecks of mud on the priceless, practically threadbare, Persian rug were shed from the boots of the youngest daughter of the house, who just returned from her dressage lesson. She’s upstairs, pulling the pigtails out of her hair and throwing her ratcatcher shirt and buff breeches on the floor. Unfortunately, Muffy is at the age where she would rather display posters of teen heartthrobs on her walls than all the ribbons she’s won for her jumping. Come into the living room and take a seat. Just push aside one of the pups snoozing on the sofa. Yes, I’m afraid that the golden labs have pedigrees longer than yours, so they get to rest their weary heads on the needlepoint pillows embroidered with beasties of the hunt. Breathe in the not entirely unpleasant eau de chien, which permeates the worn upholstery. No, the family didn’t purchase those lightly tarnished silver trophies at the Ralph Lauren store. They were won by the generations of thoroughbred beauties you see in the silver-framed photographs arranged on the George III desk and side-

board inherited from Grandmother Thoroughbred. Perhaps the veneer on the antiques is peeling, but they are all original. Paintings of hunters and hounds hanging all over the house depict animals bred by the family. Daddy and Mumsy had to sell a few pictures at Sotheby’s to put Kitty through her freshman year at Pine Manor. Yes, you could say that the Thoroughbred family is barely hanging on to their blue-blooded lifestyle, but they’re Thoroughbreds, and you aren’t. I’m sure you can see your way out. Excuse me? Those whips and crops hanging from the hall tree you see in the entryway were bought in a

tack shop, not a sex shop. You obviously don’t belong here, not that it isn’t obvious from your gauche demeanor. Goodbye! Intelligence has it that such a richly authentic equestrian lifestyle as that ironically described above cannot be purchased. According to Vicky Moon, the author of the beautifully illustrated Equestrian Style: Home Design, Couture, and Collections from the Eclectic to the Elegant (Clarkson Potter, 2008), “Equestrian style……goes beyond hanging a hunting print on the dining room wall to actually leaping over stone walls on your favorite hunter. An unspoken equestrian philosophy surpasses wearing an Herméés scarf; it celebrates riding over jumps in an Herméés saddle. Equestrian style reaches its apex among people who not only love horses, but also practically live with them.” In other words, a true equestrienne does not dine from brand new Herméés or Ralph Lauren silverware and china, but rather invites her miniature pony in from the paddock to share her salad off of the hand-me-down chipped English ironware. The very thought of draping a loud pink and orange Herméés throw over the back of her sofa would make a bona fide horsewoman cringe. A far better decoration on the cracked leather Chesterfield is a feisty Jack Russell Terrier snoozing and teething on the pillows. An ideal Amazon wouldn’t be caught dead carrying a Dior Saddle Bag pocketbook with dangling, glitzy charms and (continued on page 80)

When you call Pulver Gas, you get to talk to a real person. No taking notes on which buttons to push.

IN THE HAMPTONS My Fifty Years with Farmers, Fishermen, Artist, Billionaires, and Celebrities. By Dan Rattiner. 368 pp. Harmony. $24.95.

But nothing he's ever written seems more far-fetched than one scene he describes in his memoir, "In the Hamptons." Driving on a sunny June weekend through the "sleepy little vil-

There's the flawless young heiress who captivated Mr. Rattiner at 20, tearfully inviting him to a midnight tryst on the beach after her parents made her cancel a date (German shepherds barred the way to the mansion). There's the artist Willem de Kooning, in his cups and off his chair at a restaurant, ranting in slurred words, "I'm the greatest living painter in the world." (Mr. Rattiner helped drag him away from public scrutiny and into the back seat of his car).


AN RATTINER loves to invent preposterous tales. In Dan's Papers, the free newspaper he founded in Montauk in 1960, he occasionally runs a bogus story to see if anyone notices. In 1966, he reported on a sea serpent sighting in Bridgehampton (WCBS fell for it and sent out a helicopter). And in 1991, he made up a festival called Flight to Portugal, in which contestants raced cars off a cliff into the ocean by the Montauk Point Lighthouse: "The one who gets the farthest toward Portugal wins."

figures, famous and obscure, who have weaved themselves into his personal mythology over the last 50 years. Each portrait is written in unassuming language, with emotional punch, telling detail and impressive recall.

This neutron-bomb tableau is not one of his hoaxes: it is 1956, on the day the author, then 16, first set foot in Montauk, before the philistines approached the hedgerow, before the Hamptons were "The Hamptons." Mr. Rattiner pays tribute to the local

Less glamorous but no less compelling are the middle-aged hoteliers Esther and Sarah, who basked daily on aluminum lawn chairs in front of their Memory Motel, "tanned, heavily oiled," and wearing "nearly identical jaguar bikinis"; and the smooth, goodnatured Bing Crosby look-alike, Frank Tuma Jr., vice president of the Montauk Improvement Company, who let Dan's Papers occupy the mezzanine of his building for free. Mr. Rattiner is a great appreciator of other people. To find as many memorable New York characters gathered between two covers, you'd have to look back to Joseph Mitchell's "Up in the Old Hotel."

By April Gonzales

From East to West, Guild Hall’s “The Garden as Art”

tive and inviting, the Potato Road residence is a recreation of an indigenous landscape. The Jaffe designed home was moved back from the primary dune and placed on a rise created by the dredging

of the pond. From the path to the pool, the view across the field up to the house, backed by blue sky and clouds, is reminiscent of an Andrew Wyeth. Mercifully, the pool is hidden from the house. It’s obscured by a gorgeous bank of Bayberry and sculpturesque Mugo Pines, which allows the eye to continue outward to the ocean. The contrast of the tawny native grasses against the green in the back of the house is striking is striking enough to convince you to give up your greensward. The garden begs the question, “Is the recreation of a natural landscape an art form equal to the design of the house?” Or, in this case, does it exceed it? Sculptural trees are the entire landscape at the property off of Jericho Lane. A golden Hinoki Cypress by the front door looks like it was molded by the wind, though it may have been a parking incident. The Arcadian setting of the pool cools you down psychologically as you approach from across the lawn. Like a well-curated art show, specimen evergreens and beech trees, are well organized, so that even though each tree is magnificent in its own right, they don’t compete with each other. Elegant and fascinating in its variety and texture, well tended and pruned to their best effect, there is a fortune in forms here that is serene year-round . Heading east to Darby Lane, the secluded remnant of a colorful 90- year-old Italianate grotto is the back drop for a small sculpture park. Here, the classic and the modern convene. Caro’s lime green 1960’s metal work greets you at the gate (continued on page 78)

Guild Hall presents its late summer garden program entitled “The Garden as As Art” next weekend, August 22 and 23. There’s an opening cocktail party, lectures, and most importantly – the tour itself through magnificent gardens on the East End. As you wander through the gardens, you will find that the Museum has cast a broad net with the theme for this August, capturing more than the title claims in its garden tour offerings. The artist’s garden, art in the garden and the art of gardening, and an exhibition at Longhouse Reserve of the container as art, accompany “The Garden as Art” in the landscape displays that await you. If you begin in the west and head east, start with the Artist’s Garden. Bob Dash’s Madoo has been almost 40 years in the making. He has captured and mastered the Sagaponack landscape in his paintings and prints. But his garden expresses much more of his interior life than his artwork does. It is easy to observe his curiosity about and veneration of nature while admiring his pruning techniques or how he juxtaposes different forms of foliage. He has venerated a local weed, the Pawlonia, by applying the age-old method of coppicing to keep it a multi-stemmed shrub with enormous leaves. Aided by the world famous Sagaponack soil, although it was merely a tractor turnaround when he started, he has experimented endlessly with plant material, planting, pruning and caring for all of it with the assistance of Carlos, his devoted gardener. In many ways, the garden is a testament to the success of their relationship, but over the years it is evident that they have both grown and changed with the garden. This can easily be seen in the new turns and directions Dash’s work has taken in the last decade, as he moved from painting the landscape to the individual flower, moving from representation to abstraction. Intimate spaces tucked into a broad native landscape create an homage to nature, specifically the dunes and fields of the East End, await you at the second Sagaponack location. Subtle, attrac-

The house is truly a remarkable showcase of talent. This year’s Showhouse features the work of roughly 25 top interior designers and decorative artists. The Showhouse, now in its eighth year, is a lavish shingle-style mansion at 59 Farm Court in Sagaponack. The house was donated by Richard Gherardi and William Landberg of the Sand Dollar Development Corp. The Showhouse is open until

A room by Christopher Maya patchwork assemblage mirror reflects even more viewpoints. When dissected, each element of the room’s design can be appreciated for its bold, elegant personality. When combined, the room really sings. Robert Stilin’s family room in the center of the house is “Belgian-look meets high art.” “My goal is always to create a room where people feel immediately comfortable. Where they look at a sofa or chair, such as the custom horsehair and down-stuffed furniture I design, and think ‘I want to sit there and enjoy this room.’” Enjoy the room they shall. Working with art consultant Marla Hamburg, Stilin pairs a show-stopping elevator diptych by Richard Mimran with relaxing and thoughtful pieces such as a puzzle photograph by Vik Muniz and watercolor cross by Dan Asher. “It was the expansive three-panel headboard pulled together with a mirrored look that really launched our room at the Showhouse,” explained Jennifer Mabley of Mabley Handler Interior Design. “It reflects light and has a luxe Moroccan feel to it,” she explained. After the headboard, it was a great Madeline Weinrib metallic medallion carpet. “It’s a great low-pile chenille in a rich lustrous gray color,” added Mabley. What we loved about the Mabley Handler room was also how they mixed touches of glamour with casual items to create very livable spaces. Silver, gray, light, items that connote the ocean, natural woods, coral, touches of glam — we were starting to see some recurring motifs. Christopher Maya’s living room sets the stage for a modern salon. The updated traditional style is perfect for pre-dinner cocktails or after-dinner whisky and charades. Elegant blues, whites and crèmes are invigorated with red chairs and accents. Thoughtful inclusions give the room depth and character, such as a red lacquered bar area inset with family photos and Louis XVI chairs updated with a fabric reminiscent of Navajo blankets. Nods to traditional salons complete the look with a formal Jansen writing desk behind the sofa and a gaming table set with 18th-century chairs. Tucked away upstairs near the back of the property is Douglas Graneto’s stimulating and sophisticated grand guest room. A bed of white coral-like sculptures from Tucker Robbins in one corner echoes the blue and orange coral patterns in the window treatments, wall coverings and bedding. Christopher Normon supplied all the fabrics for the room, a tart confection of near opposites on the color wheel. The blues and oranges pop when paired with the sophisticated marble bench by Marcel Wanders at the foot of the bed. Graneto set out to create a luxurious, lively guest room that would make a guest feel truly special. Mission accomplished. Finally, we entered the “ultimate guest suite” cre(continued on page 82)

pet agree By Jenna Robbins


Just a Little off the Top: Grooming the Gorgeous Pet Grooming is a practice that one should begin as soon as a puppy/dog is brought into your home. It’s very important to get your dog used to being touched around his face and mouth, his paws, his tail, his ears and his belly. Remember that he will be handled by a veterinarian for routine examinations, and will (routinely) have his nails cut, his ears cleaned and so on. Grooming also reduces allergens and helps to lower the risk of infections and diseases. Over time your dog will perceive his daily combing and brushing as another form of attention and affection, and even the most resistant canines will come around and begin to enjoy the personal one-on-one session. Here’s a trick I like to use: once a dog is housebroken, I brush them for a few minutes before we go out to play. As a professional trainer, I’m often asked how to groom a dog that freaks out every time they see the brush. I always recommend taking “puppy steps.” Start by simply using your hands instead of a brush. Always work with your dog when you’re calm and relaxed and in the mood. If you are stressed and irritated, your dog will definitely pick up on it and also become agitated. Try holding a chew toy in one hand to distract your dog while you start stroking him with your other hand. Then start using the back of a brush by covering the bristles with your hand, again while distracting him with your other hand. I am very against using a slicker brush, which if you are not familiar with, is a brush with bent, pointy, pin-like wires, and should be use by professionals. It may work great on a poodle with a full coat, but can be extremely irritating and even painful to a shorthaired dog or young puppy. If you hurt your

dog while trying to teach him to appreciate being groomed, well...you get the picture. Get your dog used to having his teeth cleaned by using your finger first if necessary. There are toothbrushes for dogs that are actually made to cover your index finger, much like a plastic finger cot and toothpaste made for dogs. No one likes “doggy breath.” If you have a hair rather than fur breed of dog, like a Maltese, Poodle, or Shih Tzu, you are probably all too familiar with the tearing stains from their eyes. Please do not pull at it when it’s hard and dry and crusty. A little warm water on a cotton pad will easily and quickly soften and remove the debris in the corner of their eyes. Ears and nails are two things that you should discuss with your vet. Dog’s nails have what is called a quick and if you cut the nail too short it will bleed; and not just a little! It is also painful for your dog. If you would rather not cut your dogs nails yourself, you can have a vet tech or professional groomer do it for a nominal fee and probably without an appointment. When I was a kid, it wasn’t uncommon for most people to bathe their dog once a year. Personally, I like to bathe my dogs, which have hair, at least every

other week and use a super gentle no tear shampoo and conditioner, making sure I comb the conditioner through the hair. I prefer bathing my dogs in a bathtub where I feel they are safer and it’s easier and less messy for me. Want a good tip from a professional groomer? Do not bathe a dog with matted hair. However, even if you’re doing all of the above, nothing replaces a good professional grooming. The Hamptons have some wonderful and talented groomers. They also carry fabulous leashes, collars, barrettes, carriers, beds, toys and other fun paraphernalia. Here are three that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. – Moriches Dog Grooming 333 Main Street, Moriches 631-878-9496 – Classy Canine 468 County Road 39, Southampton 631 -283-1306 – Westhampton Pet 60 Old Riverhead Rd., West Hampton 631-288-6765 Your dog will look good, feel good, and smell great!

By Susan Galardi

Supporting Families, for the Love of Children There are so many great fundraisers for great causes on the East End, including benefits for children. Happily, many are well supported. Afterall, who doesn’t want to help a child in need? Out of sheer altruism, or just as a bit of “There but for the grace of god……” There are many children in the country with many needs, and fortunately, many of us here in the Hamptons have a chance and the means to contribute to their causes. There’s a population of children, many from families who visit or live in the Hamptons that have a different kind of challenge. Shockingly, even now in the year 2008, they may be socially challenged in their neighborhoods, schools, and other group environments because they are children of gay/lesbian or some other “alternative” family structure. On August 23 at the Children’s Museum of the East End (CMEE) in Bridgehampton, there will be a fund raising event for all families: the third annual Families in the Hamptons celebration sponsored by the Family Equality Council. The goal of the Council, which was started by gay dads almost 30 years ago, is “to ensure equality for LGBT families by building community, changing hearts and minds, and advancing social justice for all families.” According to Jennifer Chrisler, Executive Director of the council, “It’s important that as a community of families we come together to celebrate what we share – a love of our children, a commitment to our communities, a belief that the world can be a just place that

values each individual for their contribution to the greater good. Family is such a common bond that unites so many of us in this country and in the Hamptons. For too long we have talked about family values without valuing families.” FEC’s vision, as outlined on its website, “will be realized when children are free from harassment, bullying and discrimination based on their family constellation.” As we head toward the school year, these goals are imminently important for all families. Current estimates indicate that there are more than 7 million lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) parents with school-age children in the United States. Of course, the question for many parents may be: Why should I worry about this? My child is from a traditional family (which, at this writing, probably means a divorced family since that’s at about a 50% of family sturctures these days). According to Chrisler, “Family Equality Council works to protect all loving families – single, LGBT, headed by grandparents and raised by a mom and a dad. By supporting FEC you’re ensuring a world that is endless in its acceptance for all families and all children.” A story on the Council’s website reads: “In 2007, when a nine-year-old girl at Tucker Elementary School in Milton, MA told her fellow third-graders that her mother is a lesbian, she was verbally abused and physically threatened by her classmates.” This is 9-

year-olds. Yikes. We all want our children to be taught and raised in a happy supportive environment. Bullying is the antithesis of that. Once bullying of any group is accepted, it paves the way for bullying of all groups. Go to Two Mile Hollow on any weekend in the summer, and it looks like the idyllic Family Equality Council event — children from families of all stripes playing together. Adults not really sure (or really caring) who belongs to whom. Are those women the child’s aunts? Or mothers? Is that doting man a friend of the immediate family? Or the other dad? Frolicking on the beach are children adopted in the U.S. or abroad, bi-racial children, surrogate-aided children, biological mom/adoptive mom children. From the kids’ perspective, for the most part, it’s all good. They just want other kids to play with. But then come the (continued on page 82)

and some Texan cows are sited between Jim Dineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s columns with shovels and DeSuveroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barbed wire chairs. A riot of flowers surrounds the more modern Tuscan style house and drapes itself across the antique grotto. The high contrast of styles in the garden creates a lot of excitement, which is clearly a part of the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nature. Her own red tower rises on the north side of the house. Three homeowners on Windmill Lane also generously opened up their properties to the tour and it is here that the art of gardening is so well realized in three different ways. Number 15 has a subtle sexiness that can be overlooked if you hurry through. Take a deep breath and relax, amble up to the magnolia out front and note how the bark matches the brick of the house behind









it. Turn and start to look at all the tree trunks in the front lawn. Yes, there is a wonderful flowering tree collection here, but nothing will be in bloom when the tour passes through. This garden is a tribute to bark, trunks, lichens on stone and texture. In back of the house washed concrete planters have a wonderful skin of their own that is reflected in the small rectangular stone planters beneath them, which hold miniature alpines. It is the blueberries that preside over the garden here, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overlook the orchids in macramĂŠ hanging planters, the cordage of which complements the bark of the tree they are strung in. The rhubarb by the wood pile is the boldest thing in this garden. The owner once told me, while on a trip to the Netherlands, that she would never let a garden designer near her place, and clearly she did not need to, having a very personal aesthetic sensibility of her own. A plant lover has tended number 23 for a long time. Moss, lichens and cheerful accident s are encouraged, but the fine-tuning of the tawny colors along the interior perennial bed, which match and complement the old brick, is masterful. A wormwood, the kind you can make absinthe from, stands alone near the knot garden and for good reason. Delight and shock occur in just the right amounts. Evidently the gardener has tried many things, plants and ideas out in these spaces, but none of it is unsettling. It shows how the art of gardening can be endlessly entertaining, as is the bottle tree. Number 33 has a view that like all really good art, transports you to another place. In my case, it was to the dunes of Cape Cod, where we rambled growing up. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t over look the stone work behind the house in favor of the beautiful dunes and sea. The combination of lavenders and stone in the descending path is gorgeous. Continue on to Skimhampton Road and Longhouse for more delights in the garden that will reveal not only their immediate elegance, but are also an attribute to the hands and minds that created the landscape. I will save the rest of the tour for you to discover, whether it is the Skimhampton Road Road residence or the greater sculpture park that Longhouse has become. For more than 20 years, April Gonzales has been involved in garden design, installation and maintenance on the East End, as well as specimen plant scouting and site supervision for landscape architects.

in front of you.” There’s another spot for ponies in East Hampton: the Dune Alpin Farm. According to the association web site, “Dune Alpin Farm is a distinctive, private and comfortable place to live and play in East Hampton, NY.” When 135 acres were purchased for $1.6 million in the 1970s by Stanley Harte, by 1981 it had, among other things, fifty acres that include the buildings, that once housed horses, being rehabilitated into what will be a ‘’deluxe riding and boarding facility. And 50 acres have been dedicated to the town or village as scenic easements,” according to a New York Times article from 1981. Many of houses on the development overlook an equestrian reserve, and owners may be able to

board their own horses if space at the barn permits. Right now there are three properties available on Dune Alpin’s Horse Meadow Lane with views of the reserve: a 3,000 square foot traditional built in 2005 for just under $2.9 million (listed by Corcoran’s Cathy Tweedy); a brand new construction, 3,000 square foot barn type house on close to an acre for $2.5 million (Beth Troy, Town & Country); and a six year old 3,000 sf traditional for just under $2.4 million (Bryan Midlam, Prudential). Now, finally, if you want to be in charge of it all, The Two Trees farm and its 114 acres in Bridgehampton has been put on the market for $95 million, represented by Tim Davis and his team at Corcoran. Now we’re talking serious coin.

Even horse enthusiast Bruce Springsteen would have to go back to work full-time to buy this baby. Of course, many equestrians bring their horses out to the Hamptons for the summer and board them. During the 1930s, a young pre-teen Jacqueline Bouvier kept her favorite horse, Danceuse, at Martin Aylward’s stable in the winter (now ABC building) in Manhattan and in his stable on Henry Street in Southampton in the summer to prepare for big events. Hundreds of people still do it today, paying anywhere from $2,000 a month and up. So, next time you turn down that back road and see those horses grazing, think of those listed prices and remember that at one time they hung horse thieves but never anyone who stole a car.

“My hope is that whoever buys this will take it and treat it well and keep the integrity and uniqueness of the house,” said Patti Wadzinski, of Corcoran Group, who is also working with this listing. “It’s a unique property.” There’s also a barn-style cottage located in Wainscott, with three bedrooms and two baths, that’s on the market for $2.995 million. And on the North Fork, there’s a barn-style home using old, reclaimed barn siding for sale in Peconic. The property at Star Top Estates in Montauk, which features a series of barns, is also up for grabs if you wanted to start from scratch and have your own barn turned into a new home for you to enjoy. So, if modern homes aren’t for you, and you want to preserve a little piece of East End history, then converting an old barn into a new home might be a good idea.

would never stoop to ride on a logo-imprinted Gucci saddle. Her barn tote is a beat-up wool plaid bag with holes chewed by the goat that pals around with her high-strung Arabian. Let’s face it, the unspoken code of the American aristocracy demands that a coveted Herméés saddle was purchased in the 1940s when Grandmamma was a student at Miss Porter’s. So, what is a self-respecting gal to do if she is not the heiress to an equestrian estate with all the posh accoutrements of the horsy lifestyle? Why, engage in the sport of queens with a French twist. Carla Bruni, described by Chanel impresario Carl Lagerfeld as a “predator,” is today’s wellgroomed answer to that timeless style icon Jackie Kennedy. Both are model horsewomen who effortlessly leaped over a few hurdles in their time. On the cover of Vanity Fair this month, France’s first lady is shown photographed in head to toe Hermés, an intriguing personification of feminine power. Unlike Old Master equestrian portraits of nobility, she only lacks a horse, but makes up for it with her feline beauty. Still, Bruni-Sarkozy looks ready to jump astride a saddle just like the deliciously improper Marie Antoinette, who, reportedly, heedlessly spurned the ladylike tradition of riding sidesaddle and mounted astride her steed, a truly shocking and suggestive habit. We say take charge of the situation, hop in the saddle, and drive a wedge between Mr. and Mrs. Thoroughbred, then assume your place as lady of the manor. Or, if you have some money, just wait for the foreclosure sale at the Thoroughbred estate, “Upson Downs.” Nobody needs to know that you’d rather not soil your Manolos stomping in the divots at polo matches and that your idea of an acceptable ride is relaxing high above it all in the recently designed Hermés helicopter.

frame. Of course, you could also purchase a barn that has already been converted into a home that’s on the market. There aren’t many of them though, said Paul Brennan, of Prudential, because the trend for these homes came and went 15 years ago. “They used to be trendy, but not so much anymore,” he said. “But they do have an appeal. I’d like to see the trend come back again.” Typically, he said, artists, writers and other creative types are attracted to these rustic homes. One such home currently on the market is a threebedroom, two-bathroom home with a pool and two fireplaces located on a private road close to East Hampton village. The owner is currently asking for $1.695 million for it, due to the fact that it is in need of some renovation. But a home like this could cost as much as $4 million, Goodstein said.

Calming blues, whites and pearl grays enveloped the room, and then we were hit by the bold use of turquoise, which served as the primary accent color throughout the room. “I wanted to create the most ideal guest room and outfit it with every amenity possible,” explained Flanders. “My goal was to make the room unforgettable.” It certainly was. We could not get the image of the most perfect turquoise accent desk out of our heads as we pulled ourselves from the room. Other participating designers include Bob Bakes, Penelope Irwin, Kate Singer, Katherine Newman, Kevin Hart, Lilly Pulizter, McNeill Art Group, Nancy Boshardt, Susan Calabria, Regina Craft, Sherrill Canet and Tarasoff Interiors. There are notable behind-the-scenes

design elements this year, as well. “This is the first time the Showhouse is truly green,” said Tony Manning of Mitchell Manning Associates, the company that provides all showhouse management services. “There is geo-thermic heating and cooling, and solar energy,” Manning explained. And, “There is more color this year. I think this is a reflection of the economy and how designers want to brighten things up.” The architecture and design of the house itself also has a bright feeling, and captures the natural light and beauty of the Hamptons. Showhouse hours are Monday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to the showhouse is $30 and includes the Showhouse Journal.

inevitable questions when the kids introduce each other to the parents. On this beach in the summer, we’re all lucky – people are generally open, accepting and undaunted. But families in other parts of the country may encounter less of an unblinking response to their structure, and it is those situations, and a larger vision for all families that the Family Equality Council is working for. On a national level, the group takes action to defeat anti-family legislation and promote pro-family legislation. It works with national and state-based organizations, parent groups and families to make change, share information and build community. And finally, it takes the most important route, educating members of government, schools, faith-based communities, health care institutions and other social systems about how they can promote family equality. The organization offers, for free, an incredible variety of materials to help children, teachers, parents and school administrators learn to address issues of “alternative” families and engender an atmosphere of acceptance and learning. The CMEE allows all families to pledge their support for children, schools, and communities. “An event like this helps all children and families see the rich diversity of our community and gives them an expansive view of the world,” said Chrisler. “CMEE is an amazing facility and it will be a great time for kids and adults. By attending this important event. families of all shapes and sizes can support our efforts to ensure a more just, a more equal, a more loving world that is good for all families.” Tickets are available for the event, which is August 23, from 2-5 pm, and includes fun activities, food and refreshments, at familyequality.org. The cost is just $125.00 each for adults, much of which is tax deductible. Children attend for free. And, as it should be, all are welcome.

Why shouldn’t we take advantage of it?” Thus far, 22 teams have registered for the tournament and the number is certain to increase. The cost of registering a team is $250 and the winning team is assured a years worth of “bragging rights” until next summer’s tournament said Wright. Games will be played from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and during the final match, Vivian and The Merrymakers, a reggae band will perform. The band will surely bring about “a fun and laid back vibe,” said Pahwul. Food and refreshments will be available throughout the tournament at the Cooper’s Beach pavilion and a sandcastle contest will be held for children on August 21. An additional bonus: Tshirts will be on sale for $10 and sponsors such as Fuze Energy Drink which will be providing balls and gift bags for the event. So far, there are expected to be between about 200 people attending the event and between 20 and 30 teams participating. “We are so excited for this year’s tournament because it is our first. We are learning a lot and hopefully next year’s will be even bigger and better,” said Wright. For teams interested in signing up for the tournament, e-mail Bill Wright at bwright16@gmail.com.

By Evie Salomon Calling all volleyball players, Have A Heart is hosting their first annual Beach Volleyball Bash. As part of the charity’s Back to School support programs, the proceeds raised throughout the evening will go to providing clothing and supplies to local students in need. Additional funds will be raised for the award winning Stewards of Children training from the national non-profit organization, Darkness to Light, a group committed to educating adults on the East End about child sexual abuse prevention. Bill Wright and Brett Pahwul, facilitators of the event as well as trustees of Have A Heart, have been working to put this tournament together in hopes of making it an annual event. “Brett and I both play volleyball in leagues and we tried to think of something outside of the box. Having a volleyball tournament is something different and everyone can get involved,” said Wright. Coming from a beach community, there is sure to be a large volleyball crowd and what better way to “help out your local community by doing something you love,” said Pahwul. For almost two decades, Have A Heart has been assisting residents of the East End. The organization has been fully committed to providing first hand relief, including food, school supplies, and financial aid, for those who are enduring either individual or family crises. “One of the best things about Have A Heart is that is it is so local. With other organizations you don’t get to see the results but with Have A Heart, you are helping your neighbors and the people around you and that is truly rewarding,” said Pahwul. Have A Heart has partnered up with a eight different food pantries all over the area, all of which combined serve over one thousand families annually. “The money we raise does not go to any one specific school. The food pantries inform us of which individuals are in need and we put the money towards that,” said Wright. Another important group that is a part of the Have A Heart Team is the Peconic Community Council. By teaming up with the council, Have a Heart is able to help residents who are experiencing financial crises and provide assistance to move individuals from homelessness to low income housing. Other local partner organizations include the East Hampton Community Council, the Family Counseling Service, Southampton Day Care Center, South Fork Breast Health Coalition, Mission of Kindness, Herstory at the Riverhead Correctional Facility, The Whalebone Landing Tutoring Project, The Center for Prenatal Care at Greenport, Padoquohan Medicine Lodge, SAMP, Independent Group Home Living Program, and Seafield Resources. The tournament will take place at one of America’s top ten beaches, Cooper’s Beach, starting August 1921. According to Wright, “We chose Cooper’s because

Go Fish


By Rich Firstenberg

Fluke Fishery Good; Possible Quota Increase We are approaching the finale of what has been a sensational fluke season. Legal fluke fishing ends September 1 and there are still plenty of keepersize (20.5 inches or longer) fluke out there. The current quota is four fluke per angler, per day. The National Marine Fisheries Service just issued a report stating fluke are not being overfished and fluke quotas for both commercial and recreational fisherman might be increased for next year. The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council met last week and the 2009 coastal fluke quota was on their agenda. The Health section of the August 5 New York

Times had a story about the Gulf Stream moving up close to the south shore of Long Island every July through October. This strong current brings tuna and marlin closer to shore, and also tropical fish small enough for most home aquariums. Riverhead’s Atlantis Marine World and Boston’s New England Aquarium have been catching these tropical fish “orphaned” by the Gulf Stream and adding them to their stock for decades. Two of the species “adopted” here are the spot fin butterfly fish and blue angelfish, caught in dragnets along the shore or by scuba-divers with handheld nets. The tropical fish can be spotted around rock piles

Debbie Tuma and the Legends and jetties in local waters. If not caught, they would die when the waters cooled. Debbie Tuma, a reporter for Dan’s Papers and The Montauk Pioneer, recently produced a documentary “Montauk Fishing Legends.” The film features well-known Montauk fishing captains such as Vinnie Grimes, Fred E. Bird, Wally Grobecker, Bill Holzman and Bob Tuma. These are familiar names to any sportfisherman who has fished on a charter boat out of Montauk in the last fifty years, including me. Now the local fishing reports. Scott at East End Bait & Tackle, Hampton Bays, says there are plenty of “snappers” (baby bluefish) in the Shinnecock Canal biting on spearing, poppers and sidewinders. Fluke fishing in the ocean outside Shinnecock inlet continues to yield five-to-six pound fluke in the area from the “cheese” house to the “castle” in 60to 80-foot depths. The larger the bait (small snappers, large killies), the better the fluke bite. Captain Don Kaye reports bluefish chasing baitfish in Shinnecock Bay and flats. One of his clients also caught a 33-inch striped bass. Harvey Bennett of The Tackle Shop, Amagansett, tells us three customers fishing outside Napeague Harbor at the offshore red buoys last Saturday caught nine keeper-sized fluke and T. J. Cosmos and Sam Lester ran into a school of Bonita in Cherry Harbor. Ken of Tight Lines Tackle, Sag Harbor, reports clients catching fluke on boats in the ocean. Linda at Jamesport Bait & Tackle says there are fluke in Long Island Sound and the Peconic bays, and striped bass being caught on eels off Horton Point. There are also still porgies around Robins Island. Five-year-old Ryan Stump, fishing on the Montauk party boat Lazy Bones, caught an 11pound fluke. Clients on the Marlin Princess had fluke weighing up to eight pounds, and anglers on Miss Montauk caught fluke in the seven-to-ten pound range. With the fluke season ending soon, it’s probably a good idea to make reservations for fluke trips on the party boats out of Shinnecock, Greenport, Orient Point and Montauk. Offshore action is on for tuna, mahi mahi (dolphin fish), white and blue marlin. The winners in last weekend’s Star Island Yacht Club’s mako/thresher shark tournament are: heaviest mako, 256 pounds, caught on The Great Escape ($2500 prize); heaviest thresher shark, 348 pounds, caught on The Kid ($3000). Shinnecock Marlin and Tuna Club’s 8th Offshore Invitational Tournament runs from Aug.15- Aug 24 out of Oakland’s Marina, Hampton Bays (631-744-1200 ext. 12). Please email any fishing questions or comments to YeOldeSalt@aol.com.

Napeague & Hither Hills State Parks This two-hour hike is less than five miles and takes another three miles along the Paumanok Path (PP). To get to the starting point, travel east along Montauk Highway, which is three miles beyond Cranberry Hole Road, to the first left turn; look for a sign that says Art Barge and be careful not to miss Napeague Meadow Road. After traveling .06 miles on Napeague Meadow Road, park on its shoulder near the opening to the LIPA access driveway on the left. On the erected kiosks by State Parks at our destination, the Hither Hills Overlook, it states that the Montaukett Indians named this area “nep” meaning water and “eague” meaning land. Half of the Napeague Isthmus is composed of tidal and freshwater marshes where biting flies and mosquitoes abound here. Picardin is very effective protection against these insects; it hasn’t caused the ill effects associated with DEET products. To protect against ticks, wear long pants and fine mesh socks treated with Permethrin; tuck your pants into your socks. In doing this, I don’t get bitten and haven’t had a tick attach to me once this year. Walk about 200 feet up the driveway. At the sign that says “No Vehicles, Environmentally Sensitive Area” you’ll see where the PP crosses the driveway. Make a right turn onto the PP would take you to the lovely blue-blazed trail flagged by Mike Bottini; cut and blazed by East Hampton Trails Preservation Society. It runs west and parallel to the PP. We turn left traveling east to continue our series of walks along it. The trail here is very well-blazed and at first the tread is cushioned by a thick layer of pine needles. Soon the protective canopy of pitch pine thins out to traverse a section of inland dunes. In some areas bear-

berry, reindeer lichen, and heather stabilize the trail’s tread, but this easily wears through and in many places the hiker must trudge through loose sand. At first, the railroad tracks and Montauk Highway are off to our right, and then we head in the direction of the most prominent feature in the area, which is a huge metal radio tower that is a remnant of WWII. Blazes on the stumps of cut utility poles and new flexi-stakes lead us to Napeague Meadow Road, around a bend from where our car is parked. A short walk along the road marked by blazed poles takes us to a left turn into a driveway leading to the Art Barge. There is a sign that says “Victor D’Amico Institute of Art.” Follow the driveway to this unique looking structure; a barge lifted onto the land. See various birds such as egrets, kestrels, and terns. Osprey-occupied nests on platforms are dwarfed by the tower. As you approach the barge, the trail veers away from the tower; be alert for a right turn from the driveway into the dunes to a half mile walk along the shoreline. There is no blazing along the shore, but if you walk due east you will come

to a bridge spanning a tidal creek that empties into Napeague Harbor. The blazes on the bridge lead you back to the shore. A short distance after crossing a second bridge is where a well-placed blaze leads you onto a driveway that cuts through the dunes and onto Napeague Harbor Road, then after 100 feet towards the left, the trail enters the woods on the other side of the road. As we travel north away from the water, the canopy of oak with some bayberry and pine is replaced by larger trees of pin, holly, beech, hickory, and a high and low blueberry bush. A short walk takes us to an unmarked yet prominent trail branching to the right. It would be a mistake to pass up this short excursion to Nominick’s Overlook. From here, you’ll enjoy a panoramic view of Napeague Harbor to the right and the Atlantic Ocean to the left. The next 1.75 miles follow the section of the Stephen Talkhouse Path that runs just south of the Walking Dunes and Fresh Pond, through dense woods and rolling hills. At one point a right turn would take you onto Jerusha’s Hollow Trail. At the point where these two paths intersect again, further east, don’t follow the left turn blaze to continue along the PP, but instead head straight across the railroad tracks. From here, a one-mile walk along several unmarked trails leads to the Hither Hills Overlook parking area. After crossing the tracks, turn right onto Old Tar Road then take a quick left onto Elisha’s Valley Trail. Turn right onto Old North Road, travel 150 feet, and turn left onto the Petticoat Hill Trail. The Petticoat Hill Trail splits in two places, but the split trails rejoin and lead to the Overlook Parking area. To find more walks on Long Island visit litlc.org

10 Minute Golf By Darren DeMaille


Mutterings on Putting If you were to test a hundred random people at the local mall, a large percentage have the ability make a 10-foot putt. Putting is very personal and there are many different ways to get the ball in the hole. Over the years I have encountered hundreds of different grips, stances, and putters. Regardless of the style, the ball goes in the hole because all great putters have a few fundamentals in common. Here is how they putt. Setup Proper posture is essential to allow your arms to swing the putter back and through. Most amateurs have a putter that is too long. This forces them to hold the putter at the end of the grip in a position in which their posture is too upright. Great putters bend from the waist and then grip the putter. In some cases this might not be the end of the putter grip. Attitude I am a great putter. I will make every putt. My stroke is fundamentally sound. This affirmation is how great putters think. If you think you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, then you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Jack Nicklaus who was one of the greatest pressure putters of all time never missed a putt in his mind. I often ask my students how many putts they think they can make in a row from three feet. The most common answer is five. The correct answer should be all of them. If you think you can, you will.

Distance Control Great putters control how far the golf ball travels. This is accomplished a few ways. True roll is when a golf ball leaves the putter face and immediately rolls. If a putter hits a golf ball with any loft, the ball will become airborne starting with backspin as opposed to topspin. The top of the ball needs to be hit with the top of the putter face, not the opposite. This is accomplished by hitting the ball with the shaft of the putter, leaning

toward the target. Great putters strike the golf ball as the putter travels up. If the putter is swinging properly, the putter should start the upswing as the putter passes the middle of your body. This is the spot where you should position your golf ball. Green Reading Determining how much a putt will break is essential in good putting. Determining break requires a great amount of experience in controlling the distance a golf ball rolls. The harder a ball is hit, the less it will take the slope of the green. If you cannot control how hard a putt is hit, you will have difficulty as a great green reader. Aim Setting the putter face in the right direction is one of the most under-rated, but one of the most important aspects to putting. If the face angle is off by the smallest degree, a short putt can be missed. Great putters take the time to aim their putter correctly. Most putts within 10 feet are missed because of bad alignment, not bad strokes. Regardless of your skill level or style, you can become a great putter. Keep these basic ideas in mind the next time you putt. Mall patrons might not be able to hit a three iron properly, but many have the ability to make a 10-foot putt. If you have any questions please send them to tenmindoctor@aol.com.

Yes, It’s Time to Break Out the Fall-wear Summer is winding down and it is time to check out the new fall fashions. Each season offers varied colors, fabrics and accessories, and this pre-fall 2008 season is boasting hues of gray, plaids and an array of neutral colors, including chocolate brown and shades of dark green. Re-defining your wardrobe each season is a must. Mixing pieces you already have with a few new trendy options is a great way to explore new styles. Let’s face it, some of us can’t afford to buy everything new each year, but we do like to make an investment in items that can be considered transitional and classic. A simple “black dress,” and several black skirts and pants can go a long way. Sleeveless dresses can be worn with turtlenecks or a cute cardigan. Pencil skirts and wide-leg trousers paired with silky full blouses or belted soft knits are in. Yes, it’s time to break out the sweater collection and this season, sweaters of all kinds are hugely popular. Designers show off their fall lines months prior and trends follow suit. This season’s runway displayed blouses with big bows by designers like Bill Blass and Proenza Schouler and lots of oversized knits. Cable knits and off-the-shoulder cashmere sweaters created in big bulky softness are the look. Rosettes were prominently used for fall. Herve Leger, Vera Wang and Marchesa incorporated rosettes as well as draped fleuers in their collections. Log on to Bergdorfs or Saks Fifth Avenue for full color pictures of handbags by Valentino. This beautiful handbag collection displays a flower theme with choices like the Fleur Satchel (available in black and red -$1,495), Jardin Rose Framed Duffel (available in black and berry-$2,395), Petal Dome Bag (available

popular demand. Donna Karan is known for longer skirts and sweaters that are soft and comfy for the fall. Feathers and fur are accented on many designers, including collections by Gucci, Etro, Burberry and Ralph Lauren.

Brooks Brothers (Southampton) also offers an abundance of luxurious cashmere sweaters, tailored tweed jackets and trousers and outerwear pieces. Check out their wrap shawl cardigan (available in charcoal or navy) priced at $378 or elegant Astrakhan jacket (made of Astrakhan lamb fur- available in black) for $2,998. There are so many options for setting new trends and adding an extra pop to your new fall wardrobe. Wide belts, shawls and scarves are great pieces that can be mixed in with a variety of items. The most important thing to always remember is to be creative and have fun designing your new fall wardrobe. Happy Shopping! Questions or thoughts? Email fashiontimes@live.com

Stiletto boots adorned with lots of metal buttons, slouchy sweaters paired with skinny fitted jeans are part of this years fall fashion.

Leave Products with a Long Shelflife on the Shelf

cuss two: high fructose corn syrup and trans fats, or partially hydrogenated oil. Let’s start with the first one: high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is corn syrup that endures a process to increase its fructose content, then is mixed with pure corn syrup or glucose. Why is it in our food? It is sweeter and cheaper than sugar. In addition, it acts as a preservative and helps prevent freezer burn and bread from hardening. HFCS is hiding in places you wouldn’t dream of. If you took inventory of your cupboard, I guarantee you will find it in 50% of your food. Culprits include most cereals, almost all breads in supermarkets, cookies, crackers, syrup, yogurt, ketchup, soups, soda, fruit drinks, ice cream, jelly, condiments, salad dressing, sauces and many other processed foods. The reason it is a potential health hazard is that the

body digests it differently than plain old sugar, the end result being more fat storage. Though there are conflicting views about the exact dangers of HFCS (and in actuality, many experts believe there may be no dangers at all), speculation includes strong ties to obesity, diabetes and high cholesterol. Let’s get to the good stuff – I mean the bad stuff, the really bad stuff, trans fats, or partially hydrogenated oil. This fat is, or was, liquid vegetable oil that is magically transformed through a chemical process into solid fat. Yuck. This so-bad-for-you “matter” (I can’t even bring myself to call it food) is found in snack foods, breads, peanut butter, margarine, baked goods, fast fried foods and literally hundreds of other items found in the grocery store and in restaurants. Its effect on food is added shelf life. Its effect on you is raised LDL cholesterol (the bad one) and lowered HDL cholesterol (the good one). Doctors and scientists call it a “double whammy”. Trans fats are a serious health threat directly related to heart disease. The FDA recommends less than 1 percent of your food consumption coming from trans fats. If you take in 2,500 calories in a day, that is 25 calories. About a cracker. And just recently, New York City actually put a ban on the use of trans fats in restaurants and bakeries. The lesson here is this: read your food labels. ALL of them. You will be shocked, not surprised, at what you are putting in your mouth. At a later date we’ll review more fun food additives like bulking agents, artificial flavors and colors, anti-caking agents, preservatives, and more. Until then, bon appetite!

By Maria Orlando Pietromonaco When you walk through a supermarket, does it ever occur to you that the packaged cakes have an expiration date of a year from now? That the processed crackers can be consumed in 2010? Is it science fiction? Fantasy? No – its synthetic ingredients – and they’re attacking our food supply. My tenet is this: if food has ingredients that you cannot pronounce, have never heard of, can’t explain or have more than five syllables, then they are not likely found naturally on Mother Earth. Therefore, you should probably not be ingesting them. Packaged foods that rest on shelves for hundreds of days and are still fit to be eaten cannot be made from pure, unaffected components. The mental image of a wholesome baker creating heavenly baked goods with flour, eggs and sugar has been replaced by lab coat-wearing scientists, concocting fudge cakes and apple pies with test tubes and beakers, then boxing them and shipping them off to the market. The following may sound like a supply list for a manufactured toy, but here’s a real deal food label taken from a POPULAR BAKED PRODUCT: in addition to egg whites, water, sugar and milk there is polysorbate 60, propylene glycol, artificial flavor, sodium caseinate, calcium caseinate, aluminum sulfate, sorbitan monostearate, mono and diglycerides. Now I don’t know about you, but I haven’t heard of a chicken laying a diglyceride, or a plant growing a monostearate. And what if you left out the propylene glycol? Would the cake taste much different? There are so many ingredients in processed food that require closer examination, but for now we’ll dis-

Ellen’s Run, For Your Own, and Other’s, Health By Emily Weitz The event named “Best Event of 2007” by Dan’s Papers is back to do more good for the community. It’s not a chic party and it has nothing to do with the hottest new club. Rather, Ellen’s Run is the event of the summer because it’s about bringing members of the community together in the fight against a great evil: breast cancer. Everyone seems to have a story of someone they’ve lost to this widespread disease. It’s an epidemic in our country, and it demands attention, awareness, and funding. The Ellen’s Run 5K in East Hampton is the legacy of a woman who, like far too many of our loved ones, lost her battle with breast cancer. It was in 1995 when Ellen Hermanson’s six year fight with cancer ended. But during that long struggle, Ellen stood up to advocate for all the thousands of women who have been afflicted by this epidemic. And her voice continues to be heard, through her family who won’t forget her and her foundation that won’t give up on the other women battling cancer today. Ellen’s older sister, Julie Ratner, was inspired by her sister’s determination throughout her battle with breast cancer. Even as she suffered through painful treatments, Ellen used her struggle as a platform to advocate for her cause. She spoke up about the physical pain that often went untreated as doctors focused on prolonging life. Ellen insisted that “people in my position don’t have time to have their days compromised by pain.” Ellen was a fighter and a writer who believed in the power of the pen. Throughout her illness, she wrote about the issues that affected breast cancer fighters. When she died, it was up to her sisters, Julie and Emily, and her daughter, Leora, to take the

torch. And take the torch they did. Julie and Emily founded Ellen’s Run in 1996 to keep Ellen’s voice alive and to show her daughter what a powerful woman her mother had been. And Leora’s involvement with the run grows every year. Ellen’s Run is a grassroots organization that places a heavy emphasis on staying local and giving to communities that need assistance. Therefore, much of the money raised goes to Southampton Hospital so that the women of the East End, our own sisters and daughters, will have the best care possible if they ever have to go through this painful process. In 2000, funds from Ellen’s Run helped Southampton Hospital purchase a Mammatome Breast Biopsy System to facilitate more accurate biopsies, aiding in the early detection of breast cancer. We all know that early detection is key when it comes to cancer. It is treatable, but once it gets past a certain point, cancer can infect the whole body. In 2002, Ellen’s Run proudly funded the purchase of a High Capacity Mammography Viewer and Mammography Chair, which improves the interpretation of mammograms. Over the years, as Ellen’s Run has grown to over 1,000 participants, the foundation has donated over $1.7 million in grants. Other beneficiaries have included East Long Island Breast Cancer Resource Center, the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and the Shinnecock Indian Health Services. Another branch of the foundation devoted to Ellen’s

memory is called Ellen’s Well. This offers psychosocial support to cancer patients. Through social workers and support groups, the trying emotional demands of this disease are met. There is also an educational outreach program that is fully utilized in low funded areas, which teaches women how to self-administer breast exams. Over a thousand participants are expected to join in the efforts this weekend, from accomplished runners to people just looking to walk for a good cause. “While most entries sign up as individuals or groups of two or three, this year we are encouraging affiliated groups of five or more to sign up to participate as teams,” said Julie. “Running as part of a team is fun.” And really, that’s what the day is all about. It’s about forming bonds and working together to accomplish something difficult. The struggle against breast cancer has taken many lives, and here on the East End, women are more affected than in most other places in the country. But by working together, and by not giving up, even in the face of death, we can keep up the fight that began with so many inspirational people like Ellen Hermanson. The 13th Annual Ellen’s Run begins at East Hampton High School at 9 a.m. on Sunday, August 17. It is a 5K, or 3.1 miles, and is open to people of all ages and skill levels. In the past, participants have ranged in age from 7 to 86, and they all had one thing in common: hope. To learn more about Ellen’s Run, check out the web site at ellensrun.org.

DAN'S PAPERS, August 15, 2008 Page 94 www.danshamptons.com



Shark Week? Try Shark Month Shark Week is on the Discovery Channel. It’s been on for two weeks now and I think they’re just going to turn it into Shark Month. Many other channels have followed suit and are running their own versions of Shark Week: “How To Know If A Shark Is About To Strike Week;” “Colors That Attract Sharks;” “How To Know That A Shark Is Really Dead Without Sticking Your Hand In It’s Mouth To Check For Reflexive Bite Week;” “Foods That Make You Smell Like Sautéed Seal To Sharks.” The “sharks are our friends” experts are running shark specials like: “Sharks: The Misunderstood Killing Machines;” “Sharks Only Bite Humans Because They Think We’re Seals;” “The Innocent Shark; They Won’t Even Eat You While Dressed in Chain Mail and Smeared With Fish Guts.” The “sharks are our misunderstood friends” experts swim among chum, swirling with sharks, and the sharks ignore them. They insist on catching sharks and shoving a chain mailed arm in their mouths to prove that they are “actually shy” creatures. They act mystified as to how these innocent fish can be so villianized-surely it’s something the humans are doing to provoke them, like being in the water. On the other hand, there’s the ”Sharks innocent? Are you outta your mind?” group, of which I am one. There are countless eyewitness reports from half eaten people reporting sharks as the aggressors. The story of the USS Indianapolis alone should end the debate. Most recently, is the excellent book, Albatross, that tells the story of how a family of sharks swirled under and around a group’s life raft, waiting for any opportunity to pounce. One member, who had gone crazy from drinking sea water, hung his legs over the side and was immediately pulled in and eaten inches from the raft. Somehow, I don’t think wearing chain mail would have saved him. I don’t think those were the shy sharks. They must have lost their boat among the “We don’t care who you are, we’re eating you” sharks. I have two theories as to why the sharks don’t eat the experts, but they eat anyone else in the water. Theory One: Since the experts are swimming under the water with the sharks, the fish may regard them

as other fish and simply view them as competition for the food that’s in the water. But what about all the attacks on divers? Well, that does present a problem, but I handle it like the real experts and simply ignore

it because it runs akimbo to my theory. Theory Two: Sharks really are smarter than we know. We all know they can smell blood and sense vibrations in the next hemisphere. I say they send little shark messages in those vibrations, like; “If you get this message and are anywhere on the Atlantic Eastern Seaboard, there’s a new leaky raft with six dinners near Montauk.” Or, “Boat wreck off Kittery, three warm dinners, seven cold ones.” Or, “Two hot lunches, already sautéed in white wine off of Shelter Island.” Of the two theories, I think Number Two is correct. If they can’t get to the food, they courteously tell the other sharks where the groceries are. I was sharing this theory with a friend who said, “But there’s no sharks around Shelter Island,” All of the record breaking Great White Sharks have been caught just off our neighbor, Montauk, and the Island is surrounded by a channel that is 98 feet deep. Nah, no sharks in these waters. Besides, who wants to wear a chain mail suit over a bikini-it could really chafe.

hull and an interior crafted with mahogany and red oak. The canvas awning on the boat was handmade by Captain Dave himself. She operates on 8 state-ofthe-art absorbed glass matt batteries. They produce enough power to keep the boat going for 60 miles. Boats like this were originally made for high rollers of the day like J.P. Morgan, but soon became obsolete when inexpensive fossil fuel powered boats became popular. Right now the boat runs on electric supplied by the village of Greenport. But there is a science class at Riverhead High School that’s working on a way to line the of Preston’s with solar panels and hook “Glory” into that. “It’s nice to be able to run a business with a clear conscious about what it’s doing to the environment,” is what Rowsom told me when I asked him about the business he helped build. So if you’re looking to take a romantic sunset tour – or to kick back and relax with your buddies head down to Preston’s Dock in Greenport and go for the “Glory.” The boat holds fourteen people and runs seven days a week. Just grab the grease pencil and scratch your name into the sign up board at the dock. If you want more information on Glory head over to www.greenportlaunch.com.

but something wasn’t right. It was the fact that there were just a handful of powerboats out there with us. That’s very uncharacteristic for this time of summer Captain Dave explained. That may have something to do with gas being more than $5.50 a gallon on the water in some places. “Glory” on the other hand runs on electric. It costs anywhere between $80 and $100 for the entire season to operate “Glory.” That’s one of the reasons’Captain Dave says he hasn’t had to raise his prices since he began running “Glory”10 years ago. He prides himself for still being able to charge $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, and $5 for kids under 12. So what else makes “Glory” so special? “After 10 years we are expanding the role the boat can play,” Captain Dave said referring to him and his partner Andrew Rowsom. They run a summer science program for children to teach them about the water. “The bay is so special, and they’re the ones who are going to have to take care of it, that’s why I’m enthused.” Now a little about “Glory.” The vessel is a 1990 reproduction of a 30 foot fantail launch originally built by the Electronic Launch Company for the Chicago Exposition of 1893. Glory has a fiberglass


By Henry James Kicking back with Captain Dave on “Glory” in Greenport is one of the best ways to battle your high blood pressure. This year the electric boat known as “Glory” is celebrating its 10th year on water. “Glory” is one of the “Greenest” ways to enjoy the water on Long Island. It’s the only electric boat in the universe according the skipper. That joke went over well with the group of vacationers I joined for the tranquil trip with Captain Dave Berson in Peconic Bay. Well it may not be the only one but Captain Dave tells me “Glory” is the only United States Coast Guard certified, zero emissions, harbor tour boat in all of New York. After a brief introduction by Captain Dave he blew into his conch shell and we made our way from Preston’s Dock, past Claudio’s Clam Bar out into Greenport Harbor. It turned out there was a harelegger named Patty on the boat. Hareleggers are what families born and raised on Shelter Island from generations ago are often referred to. She began telling animated tales about her family history and how deeply rooted they were on Shelter Island with the horse and wagon transportation business they used to run. Patty told stories about the days when singers like Glenn Miller would play the enormous hotels that once thrived on Shelter Island. That is before they burned down. Before I knew it the whole boat was chit chatting. “The dynamic on the boat is to initiate a dialogue amongst strangers,” Captain Dave said with a grin. “It’s not just a tour boat. It’s a unique operation with an emphasis on community.” Now traveling at about 6 knots, we finally caught a bit of a Southwest breeze. “You’re on the wrong boat if you’re looking to water ski,” Captain Dave told me as we hit stride. That’s when young Eli, just 4 and a quarter years old as he told us, wanted to grab the wheel. The mini Mets fan refused to give his hat up for a Captain’s hat so he drove the boat without it. What a thrill for the little guy, and even more so for his parents who were snapping away with their cameras. “Glory” is a very kid friendly boat, but we’ll get a little more into that in a few minutes. The water was very calm on the way across the bay,

Dan’s North Fork

Over The Barrel... with Lenn Thompson

Symposium Heron Hill Winery in the Finger Lakes, wasn’t impressed by Long Island chardonnays, calling them “thick” and saying that they show a “similarity across the board.” He found blends from Bedell Cellars and Channing Daughters Winery much more to his liking. Oddly, he didn’t mention sauvignon blanc, the grape where many others think Long Island’s white wine future resides. On day two, Clifton was much more complimentary, telling those assembled that he thinks that “the wines are as world class as from any region I’ve been in” adding that “New York should be getting 90s” referring to elusive and undeniably important wine ratings. Clifton finished by saying “I feel like I’m in Santa Barbara 10 years ago.” Of course North Fork winemakers don’t have the advantage of a blockbuster wine movie to help substantiate the work they are doing. One of the most entertaining presentations was given by the Lenz Winery’s own Eric Fry, who can always be counted on for strong opinions and a bit of Photo Credit

Last week, members of the world’s wine industry descended upon Stony Brook Southampton for a “The Art of Balance, Cool Climate/Maritime Wines in a Global Context,” a symposium organized by the Stony Brook Center for Food, Wine and Culture and the Long Island Wine Council. Over two days of presentations and panel discussions, many topics were covered, including the various winemaking techniques employed by winemakers, global climate change and its impact on those winemaking decisions, ‘natural’ winemaking and the elusive concept of terroir—a French term loosely defined as a wine’s sense of place. As winemakers like Alessio Dorigo from Friuli, Gunter Kunstler from the Rheingau region in German, Spain’s Katia Alvarez, Pascal Jolivet from the Loire Valley and Steve Clifton from Santa Barbara spoke about their regions and winemaking, one thing became clear: there are a lot of cool-climate winemakers doing a lot of different things in the pursuit of a common goal—perfection. The passion oozed from these men and woman. It was as inspiring as it was educational. Expectedly, the symposium wasn’t without its tense, even controversial, moments. When asked what they thought of Long Island’s wines, the first day’s panel offered mixed reviews. Thomas Laszlo, VP of winemaking operations at

humor. He started with a brief history of Long Island wine, also describing the unique combination of water and weather allows for slow, even ripening and the retention of natural acidity. And while he characterized terroir as a “marketing term” he did describe what he sees as an emerging style on Long Island: respect for the vineyard, ripe fruit and tannins, and fruit-forward wines that are not too high in alcohol or too low in acid. Shortening that definition, he described the style as “full-flavored, balanced wines.” Where do Long Island’s wines stand when compared to those from other cool climate regions? Throughout the sessions, we got to taste a couple wines from each of the presenters’ wineries, and I can say without a doubt, Long Island’s wines belonged. It was a wonderful two days. There are real challenges for maritime wine regions, but also great opportunities. We can only hope that it becomes a regular event and that in future editions, there is more two-way communication between and amongst the presenters and attendees. That will help everyone involved reach their full potential.

Dan’s North Fork

Ice Cream On The North Fork, Does It Get Better? North Fork Ice Cream Shops Are A Big Social Force For The Young And The Old By Phyllis Lombardi It’s about as good as it gets. You’re in your teens, you’re on summer vacation, and you’ve landed a job in an ice cream shop. You’re going to get paid for dishing up chocolate, vanilla or strawberry. I was never so fortunate. True, I was a teen long years ago and I did work during summer vacations. In a Sears Roebuck store and in a public library. Though both were pleasant experiences, neither one came in different flavors. I’ve great affection for teens and ice cream so I gave myself a delightful summer assignment. Check out North Fork ice cream shops and the young people who work in them. In so doing, I recalled a favorite ice cream shop from my teens. Dreves. On Northern Boulevard in Little Neck, it was near my grandma’s Great Neck home. Dreves had real lemon ice cream. A rarity back then unless you came upon a Howard Johnson’s. But back to the North Fork. Let’s start this ice capade with someone who dispelled my idea that I’d find mostly young women working in ice cream shops. Not so. At least not in Riverhead’s Dariland on Route 25. That’s where I met Kevin Purick, a sophomore at Riverhead High School. It was Kevin’s second day on his first paying job. Indeed, it was a hot day and I arrived at Dariland at 11 a.m. when it opened. You can’t get to an ice cream store early enough! There was scooper Kevin wearing his Dariland Tshirt and looking cool as he dished out my favorite flavor, coffee. Kevin told me Rocky Road ice cream seems most popular, but then, he’d only been observing for a few hours. Kevin’s favorite? Cookie Dough. Kevin was also wearing rubber gloves. That’s because he’s learning how to make waffle cones. Quite an art, I imagine. And yes, several of Kevin’s friends have dropped by for a visit. It’s great to have a pal in the sweetest place in town. If you’re eating ice cream at home you know how you keep going back to the freezer for just a little bit more. Well, Kaitlin Leden keeps working at Scoops Ice Cream Shoppe on Main Road in Cutchogue. Matter of fact, this is Kaitlin’s fourth summer there. Kaitlin, a Mattituck High School senior, was good enough to show me around Scoops The comfortable tables and chairs, the Boston Red Sox (ugh!) team photo on a wall, the games for little kids. Goodness, you could stay here and eat ice cream for hours. Cappuccino Crunch is a favorite with adults, said Kaitlin, while kids favor Cotton Candy or Crazy Vanilla. Then there’s Caramel Coyote, Kaitlin’s addiction right now. Kaitlin says she like her job “except for one thing.” She’s needed most between 5 and 10 p.m. That’s just when all her friends are getting together for a night of fun. And Kaitlin reminded me of all the other work that has to be done in the shop. The sweeping, the washing of utensils and containers, the assembling of ice cream cakes. It’s enough to make a young woman take time out for two scoops at Scoops. Almost as much as Caramel Coyote, Kaitlin loves repeat customers, those who’ve come in several times a week for years. They’ve become her ice cream family. Now meet Taylor Vibert (Greenport High School) and Elliot Shine (Southold High School). Both are eleventh-graders and both work at Ralph’s Ices in Greenport. Taylor, who’s worked other jobs on the East End, loves working at Ralph’s. When I met her she was

eating Mint Chip ice cream. This was at lunch time, mind you. No fruit or anything else. I scolded her. Teenage girls can’t live on ice cream alone. Elliot, on the other hand, had just finished eating a chicken cutlet sandwich and a plum. Now for his favorite – Banana Fudge crème ice. Elliot maintains little boys like Blue Hawaii ice while little girls choose Malibu Bay Breeze. Both Taylor and Elliot enjoy meet-

ing folks from all over the country. Although Elliott can’t get away from his friends. He says they “come by the store and make faces at him through the window.” Convinced? Whether you’re a plumber, a farmer, a nurse, barber, you surely like ice cream. Don’t waste any more time. Give two weeks notice and then join Kevin, Kaitlin, Taylor and Elliot in a job full of frozen assets.

Does It Get Any Better? Picnics On The North Fork With Family And Friends Are What It Is All About The group meets once a month at Clinton Memorial AME Church in Greenport. And while members research and discuss serious subjects like conservation, race relations and emergency preparedness, they do stuff, too. For instance, they initiated The Community Land Trust, sponsored a 9-11 forum, and provided reflectors for those who bike to work in dark early morning hours. So picnic time is a chance to “chill out” according to Diane. Some WIC members go for a swim and all of them eat and eat and eat some more. Then they talk. This year, Dave and Tricia Howe are the picnicput-together people. They have their work cut out for them with more than 200 hungry North Forkers arriving around noon. The association provides hot dogs and hamburgers and guests bring

salads and desserts to share. There’s even a dessert contest. Dave says there’s one guy, Tom Wetzel, who always asks for a hamburger with a “high fat” content. Seems Tom’s wife, Joan, watches his diet carefully and Tom longs for burgers as he knew them years ago – before they were 90% lean. There are sack races for the kids and kayak races, too. With prizes, of course. “I love watching everybody having a good time. Seeing everybody smiling.” So says Dave. Just forget about traveling to Jones Beach for a summer picnic. Stay right here on the North Fork. And when you’ve had your share of burgers, beer and brownies, and the picnic’s ended, search out the clean-up committee. You’ll go home feeling good.

By Phyllis Lombardi Tea for two? Not quite. Then how about a picnic for 7,000? That’s right. Known as the “largest company picnic on Long Island,” took place at Jones Beach State Park. A Melville accounting firm, Marcum and Kliegman, sponsors the yearly picnic. The firm encourages other companies (like P.C.Richard and Capital One) to join them. That’s why there are so many people. They have races and all kinds of events. Even a company T-shirt competition. Now there’s no way the North Fork can compete with a 7,000-attendees company picnic. But we do have lots of picnics during our glorious summers. Our businesses and civic groups are smaller, much smaller, than Capital One, for example. As are our picnics. Just know that our picnics are as tasty and happy as any big shindig up west. In Greenport there’s a guy, Augie Menchini, who helps run a super picnic. Augie works in Human Resources at Eastern Long Island Hospital. Every August, ELIH employees get together for food and fun. Augie invited me to join ’em and I just might. For one very special reason I’ll tell you about in a minute. ELIH’s picnic is a long one – from 11 a.m. to late in the afternoon this Thursday. If you’ve seen ELIH you know it’s on the water and they’ve got this big tent and a gazebo out back. Perfect. The picnic food is perfect, too. It’s grilled by ELIH administrators such as CEO Paul Connor III, who told me he likes to cook the chicken. I’ll let you in on a secret, Paul. Your chicken tastes great but needs a little more grill time. That’s according to Augie. I’m just telling you. ELIH employees can bring their children and everyone enjoys the games physical therapy folks plan. Lots of action, lots of motion. Everyone loves the dunking tank, too. Although not everyone is dunked. Some just watch and laugh and laugh. The dunking tank was last year’s picnic innovation. I know Paul was dunked but Augie didn’t say why. The chicken, maybe? Here’s why I’d like to go to ELIH’s picnic. Over the past year I’ve been stuck with lots of needles by lots of doctors. I figure if I could dunk a few docs I might adequately express my gratitude. East of Greenport, out in Orient Beach State Park, there’s another August picnic. Greenport’s Diane Amussen told me about the group she belongs to. It’s Women in Conversation and it’s been active on the North Fork for about 11 years.

Review: Show Boat at the Gateway Playhouse

Jeff Bellante

By Roy Bradbrook If you come away from this production without having some of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein’s glorious songs running through your head, you must have been asleep. Gateway‘s new production of Show Boat is spectacular. The costumes recreate the beauty and elegance of the 1920s and the scenery brings to life the world of the showboats that brought song, dance and corny plays to the folks living along the banks of the Mississippi River at the beginning of the twentieth century. The stars of the show, though, are the wonderful songs performed by what could well be the best collection of voices that Gateway has put on the stage in the last 20 years. “Ole Man River” will always be associated with the legendary Paul Robeson. Dan W. Tullis Jr., who has a long history in films and on TV, has one of the most incredible true bass voices I have ever heard. The packed house on opening night roared their approval when this intensely moving song came to an end, requiring him to reprise part of the song as an encore. Tommy Wazelle, as the dashing Gaylord Ravenal, sang like tenors are supposed to sing. Beautiful diction and liquid tonal qualities that

made us say that we could sit and listen to him all night. If there was any justice in show biz, he would be starring on Broadway. Jillian Louis, as Magnolia Hawkes, the love of his life, has a very good voice, so when they sang the wonderful duets, “Only Make Believe” and “You Are Love,” it truly was romantic. Isabel Santiago, as Julie was passionate and brought to life the worries of so many women as she sang “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man” and later in the show “Bill,” another song in the same plaintive vein. Show Boat was the first musical where black and white actors really shared the stage on equal

terms, and, within the play, the terrible aspects of segregation, such as the crime of miscegenation and the “N word” are integral parts of the story. There are two choruses, one black and one white – the total mixing of races in stage musicals still wouldn’t happen for a long time to come. Both choruses are great and the choreography by Michelle Weber makes a vibrant kaleidoscope of color and really adds to the show’s pace and drive. The music of Show Boat ranges from the exuberant to the sad. Joe’s wife Queenie, played by Cynthia Cobb, stirred the emotions of the audience with the powerful song “Misery.” Frankly, the book of the show is not that great. Years skip by because the action covers some 50 years and toward the end of the show it seems that Capt. Andy, played with great aplomb by Robert Lydiard, is rushing to cover the last 20 or so years in a few words. Show Boat is one of the all-time great American musicals and the music and lyrics are still wonderful. It is very doubtful if any of the musicals of the past decade will be worthy of revivals in another 80 years, but Show Boat and others from those golden days when Broadway musicals reigned supreme, are truly timeless.

Arts & Entertainment Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings at WHBPAC

By Tiffany Razzano At a time when England is heralded as the center of a neo-soul revival, with the likes of Amy Winehouse and Duffy heating up the charts, many people don’t realize that movement was actually started by an artist born on American soil – Sharon Jones, backed by the Dap-Kings, who will be performing at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on Saturday, August 16. “Guess what?” said Jones, who grew up in Brooklyn and, at 52, is finally getting the recognition she deserves, with her recent catchy soul song “100 Days, 100 Nights” getting stuck in the heads of many. “We started this stuff over in Europe. But it’s ok, because it all boils back down to me and the Dap-Kings.” After spending most of her life working random jobs – as a corrections officer on Riker’s Island, a security guard, at a message/copy center – Jones is enjoying a mid-life career in music. While working at these mundane jobs, she moonlighted as a wedding singer and back-up vocalist for a variety of session work. In 1996, she finally got her break with Desco Records, a small

independent label. At the time, Jones was in her early 40s. “The reason for my late start is that I was always told I didn’t have the look,” Jones said. “I was too dark skinned, too fat, too short. Then after I was 25, I was too old. It just made it a little harder for me. It only held me back a little though. I mean, I’d appreciate if this happened in my 30s maybe, but now I’m 52 and I’m just really starting.” Performing with Desco’s house band, the Soul Providers, Jones earned a reputation for a great live show. When Desco went under in 2000, she and several members of the Soul Providers went on to form Daptone Records and the Dap-Kings. Jones and the Dap-Kings took up residency in a Barcelona club and they began touring extensively, growing a reputation in Europe. Producer Mark Ronson even took notice, bringing in the Dap-Kings to record and to perform with Winehouse and magazines across Europe dubbed Jones the “Queen of Funk.” Now, with the release of their latest album, 100 Days, 100 Nights, and the single of the same name,


Jones is slowly starting to get the recognition she deserves in America. “I just do my thing,” she said. “Now in the states, and now that we’re about to be going south, we’re getting a little bit more recognized. In Europe, people accept it so much more over there than in the States.” Still, things are definitely happening for Jones, who is non-stop touring, even making an appearance at Lollapalooza in Chicago, one of the most well known music festivals in the country. She also performed with Lou Reed’s operatic production of his album Berlin, which was released on DVD. “What do me and Lou Reed have in common?” she said. “Nothing! But it worked. I guess opposites attract.” She then turned down touring in Europe with Lou Reed to take a small role in The Great Debaters with Denzel Washington, and contributed six songs to the soundtrack. “I love it all,” Jones said. “I love it even more than the guys in the band. It’s a blessing right now how we are. As long as God’s blessing me, I’m going to keep going.” Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings will be performing at the PAC on Saturday, August 16 at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $75/$60/$45 and can be purchased at whbpac.org or by calling the box office at 631-288-1500.

Bringinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; it all Back Home, to the North Fork With essentially no cohesive music scene for younger bands on the North Fork, two local teens decided to take matters into their own hands. Three years ago, Pat Serrano, of New Suffolk, and Joe Capuano, of Greenport, formed Take Back Productions, not only booking showcases for local bands, but also acting as a record label. And now, after an 18-month hiatus, Take Back has not only released a new four-song EP for Greenport artist, Warren, but they also have three upcoming shows. On August 16, local bands Well, Hello, Native Sons, Myriad, High Bluff and Viola will be playing at the Greenport Legion Hall for $10, followed by a free show on August 21 at Mitchell Park, also in Greenport, featuring Well, Hello, Show Me Action and Danny Rocco. They also have another show at the Legion Hall in the works for September 6. The duo met at a BOCES class in Riverhead, where they learned the art of recording and mixing music. The two were constantly complaining to their teacher and other students about the music industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, our teacher said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you just do it?â&#x20AC;? Serrano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a put up or shut up kind of thing.â&#x20AC;? Each quickly took on a specific role within Take Back. Serrano, who had booked shows with a previous production company he founded, took on more of a promotions role, while Capuano took on more of a technical role, dealing with sound at all the shows and serving as the labelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recording engineer. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked with a handful of bands over the years, recording, promoting and distributing their records,

and even have two they work with on a regular basis â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Warren and Crime Is a Trend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We put out records for the people we really like,â&#x20AC;? Serrano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And people who are not just trying to make some money, but who really want to be musicians. We personally choose the bands that we like.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We choose the bands that we love listening to and also like working with,â&#x20AC;? Capuano added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work with anyone I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy working with.â&#x20AC;? Take Back has become a lifesaver for the North Fork music scene, caring more about the music than making any money. They care more about the bands they work with and making their releases affordable and accessible than putting anything into their own pockets.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;When bands sign that hunk of paper [with a record label] they give away their rights,â&#x20AC;? said Capuano. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we know in the long run, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their work, not ours,â&#x20AC;? adding that the contracts they sign with bands are very loose and include no exclusivity clauses. Since the bands on their label are mostly looking for exposure, and since the production for the CDs is done in house, several of Take Backâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s releases, including the most recent one from Warren, are downloadable for free on their Web site. Others are priced as low as $2 or $3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Music is art and should be free,â&#x20AC;? Serrano said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, free doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always work, but we try our hardest. This is the fourth year in a row that CD sales in the whole industry are down.â&#x20AC;? Of course, it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always been easy for them. An attendee at a show at the Peconic Rec Center, where Take Back held shows on a regular basis, broke his nose in a mosh pit a year-and-a-half ago. After that, they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed to use the space anymore and found themselves without a home for their shows. Fortunately, the label has recently paired up with the Village of Greenport, which has been very supportive of their efforts to keep music alive and has found them some local venues for their comeback. For more information on Take Back Productionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; upcoming shows and releases, go to takebackproductions.com or myspace.com/takebackproductions.

Review: Ain’t Misbehavin’ at Bay Street Theatre By Susan M. Galardi More than 30 years ago, Murray Horwitz and Richard Maltby, Jr. come up with the idea of creating a musical revue based on the songs of “Fats” Waller. The material was there: dozens of songs attributed to Waller, who could be called the urban Cole Porter. Both songwriters boast witty lyrics, catchy titles and memorable tunes. Porter composes more complicated, rangy and well-structured melodies that take off and soar with a great voice, and hold their own even whispered – they have “good bones.” Waller’s ditties are just that – pleasant, tuneful swing and stride piano numbers that make for pure, easy-going entertainment. And that is what Bay Street is offering with its production of Ain’t Misbehavin’ that opened August 8 and runs through August 31. The show, which opened on Broadway in 1978 and starred Nell Carter, won the Tony for Best Musical that year, and Carter won the Tony for Best Featured Actress. It’s still a crowd pleaser, as evidenced by the standing ovation the cast received at the end of Saturday’s performance. And while there wasn’t a Nell Carter standout, the able cast of singers (a couple of whom were fine dancers) worked well as an ensemble, accompanied by a theater rarity: a live band, this one led by musical director/conductor/pianist William Foster McDaniel. Based on the original production, Greg Wilson’s

costumes were evocative of the period, with striped suits (including a Zoot) and spats for the men, patterned dresses and some big hats for the ladies. Jon Savage’s set evoked a back room cabaret of the 1920s – no high styled Cotton Club here, but a Lenox Avenue piano bar with an upright, bandstand with velvet skirt hanging for a brass rails, a bar and tables. It was a perfectly workable structure that leant itself easily to a variety of staging. Marcia Milgrom Dodge’s direction had the actors performing almost all numbers with a tongue-incheek, wink and nod to the audience. This worked well for the silly and bawdy pieces like “Ain’t Nobody’s Business if I Do,” “Fat and Greasy,” and “Your Feet’s Too Big” (but that number would’ve been better if James Alexander as Sweets was on

his own feets, rather than seated in a chair). But for the numbers that could and perhaps should be more hot and steamy rather than light and campy – like “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Squeeze Me,” “Cash for Your Trash,” and “Keepin’ Out of Mischief Now,” the broad stroke direction didn’t quite pay off. The result was a more homogenous approach to the songs, rather than individuating them with a dramatic push in one direction or the other, thus creating more contrast and drama. The choreography, by Dodge and Associate Choreographer Jim Weaver, was welcomed and one wished there was more of it. Weaver, who also played the role of King, was the most engaging actor for this writer, and his singing/dancing with Monica Patton as Cherry, were highlights of the show. Another outrageously funny bit – which really did push the boundaries of the song, was “Find Out What They Like,” performed by Aurelia Williams (Ruby) and Q. Smith (Queenie). The two women took the number to the far reaches – very successfully. Another highlight was the ensemble piece, “Handful of Keys,” at which point the show felt like it was really beginning to take off. The final number, the poignant “Black and Blue,” was appropriately serious, with singers standing still, in a half circle, straight out to the audience, their faces in individual spot lights. It was an effective “moment.” Indeed, quite a contrast to what had come before.

Tropic Thunder A good portion of Ben Stiller’s admirers got nervous – for good reason – when Night at the Museum became a hit. Perhaps it was that pinnacle moment for Stiller, that time when a cutting-edge talent starts making (gasp) family films…from George Carlin to Richard Pryor to Eddie Murphy, many of the giants who had pushed the limits and demonstrated new insights sooner or later seem eager to transform from an angry young man to well-paid family fun-guy. And with Museum so popular (and soon to be sequel-ized), many thought that Ben was bailing on being a bad-boy…but luckily – at least for now – that fear can take a rest. Yes, the actor who raunched it up in There’s Something About Mary and in last year’s atrocious remake of The Heartbreak Kid returns not only to funny adult form but also returns to the role he has always shined in: the director. It was his accomplishments behind the camera that truly demonstrated his ability to find what was going wrong, or at least being wrongly accepted, in culture. It started in his short-lived but genius Ben Stiller Show, then the Generation X snapshot Reality Bites, followed by the miscast but wicked Cable Guy and then his poke at faux-fabulousness in Zoolander. It is that “poke” that is his gift, as he is able to skewer pop culture from the inside, gut-punching many who feel that celebrity is a state of entitlement, while simultaneously zinging himself for occasionally dabbling in such pomposity. But in Tropic Thunder, Hollywood receives a new, 21st Century kick in the pants from Stiller, as he roasts virtually all of the male actors in the industry. It starts with Ben as Tugg Speedman, a fading action star who feels compelled to prove he’s more than just aging muscles. His first attempt to escape his pigeonhole involves him playing a mentally handicapped man, áá la the Oscar turns in Rain Man and Forrest Gump. However, while Hoffman and Hanks shined,

Speedman’s try at such material just goes oh-sowrong. Desperate to return to glory, he agrees to costar in a group movie set during the Vietnam War. Tugg’s not the only one looking to up his image, as he is joined by Jeff Portnoy, a dumpy soul played by none other than Jack Black – who in real-life is as (unfortunately) trapped in playing one type of role as his character is. Here he riffs on Eddie Murphy, as he needs to dominate his films and fill them with grossout humor. But what promises true credibility for the two unhappy actors is that they get to work with the legendary Kirk Lazarus, a multi-Oscar winning Australian thespian who is rightfully filled out by Robert Downey Jr. Lazarus takes his parts seriously…very, very seriously. As DeNiro put on 60 lbs. to play Jake LaMotta in Raging Bull, Kirk also affects his body to own roles, and, for him, Tropic Thunder is a special challenge – he’s playing an AfricanAmerican. (Oh, we’ll get to that in a minute!) The cast and crew head to Vietnam to film, but upon arrival, the director of the film-within-a-film is unable to get things right, as the egos and celebrity tics perpetuated by Speedman, Lazarus and Portnoy become impossible to corral. So – in a move that is part artistic and part sadistic, he dumps the incorrigible cast into the real jungle to fend for themselves, leaving them nothing but guns loaded with blanks and a script to follow. Therefore, when actual drugcartel guerillas start shooting at them with real bullets, the shallow, self-absorbed cast of Tropic Thunder is left with no alternative – they have to act their way out of it…make that act badly out of it. The plot to this movie is inconsequential (an evergrowing trend these days) – but who cares? This is about watching Stiller and crew pick apart the industry, while his industry-mates gleefully participate. Co-written by Justin Theroux (better known as an actor) and Etan Cohen (a writer who specializes in spearing the dopier side of American culture), this

movie goes for the jugular time and time again; perhaps this way these people can justify the fact they otherwise happily participate in the lofty celebrity caste? Regardless, every level of moviemaking gets ripped, which is really the only fault Thunder has. In most TV and film projects, being too far “inside” is often shunned, as the average person doesn’t really know (or care) what it takes to create a show or a movie. Here, good portions of the jokes are directly pointed at on-set antics and happenings, definitely a risk on Stiller’s part. But luckily, everyone is so darn funny in this movie that almost every line has something humorous about it, even if it’s referring to activities that only electricians and cameramen might relate to. And yes, there is the Lazarus thing. With his hair, skin, voice and affect changed to make him an African-American, it seems virtually impossible for Downey to escape controversy – yet he nails it. His ability to take such a risk and make it work is yet another testament to the man’s immense talent. While almost any other actor would have probably blown it, the only stereotype implied here is that there are a lot of successful people in Hollywood who have no idea when to say “when,” especially in the misfired attempts many try to prove true skill as an actor. Luckily for us, Robert Downey Jr., exists in real life and can actually back up, never ever having to fear such limits. Ian Stark is a frequent TV and radio commentator on the film industry, and consults with private organizations on their collections. He is widely published on film and other arts/culture topics.

Art Commentary

by Marion Wolberg Weiss

”Sand” at the Parrish Art Museum Neto’s “Life That Spreads Out” is another example of sand which is incorporated into his sculpture; sand sprinkled on the work’s tendrils give it substance and weight. Dennis Oppenheim’s “Reading Position for Second Degree Burn” uses sand as a literal “ground” (and canvas of sorts) on which a man is sleeping. One view shows the man with an open book on his body; in the bottom half of the work, he is lying barechested, exposed to the sun’s rays. This combination of Earth, Body and Performance Art is fascinating, with the sand providing the common source from which all else is derived. Sand is also used as a “playing field” in an equally intriguing work by an unknown artist. (The story goes that French captives created chess games to play on the sand in the British Isles during the Napoleonic Wars.) The elongated chess pieces are both elegant and simple, signifying “Everyman” who hopes for liberation. Sand provides the foundation for the beginning and the end of the captives’ journey.

M.W. Weiss

The first thing that strikes this critic about The Parrish’s current exhibit, “Sand,” is how aesthetically connected it is to the last show, “Origami.” The exibits both portray similar textures, physicality, and sensuality. And most importantly, both are archetypical. In the case of this exhibit, the archetypes extend beyond Jungian classifications based on myths and touch almost every level of human existence. While this characterization may seem somewhat overblown, yours truly stands by the statement, nonetheless. As such, the show represents one of curator Alicia Longwell’s best endeavors yet. The display’s archetypical nature is established by a little-known film from avant-garde moviemaker Maya Deren called At Land (1944). Like her previous surreal, Meshes of the Afternoon, it’s filled with symbols and metaphors derived from both Jung and Freud, the dream-like ambience and stream-of-consciousness evoking a female godess, arising from (and returning to) the sea. The sandy beach seems to represent the border between the sea and land, life and death, being and non-being. Other pieces fulfill diverse archetypical functions as well. For example, Richard Ehrlich’s photograph, “Namibia Sand House,” not only represents the shifting sands in the Namibian Desert, but also the endurance of nature over civilization. Sand as media is also well-represented. The

R. Ehrlich’s “Namibia Sand House” primitive meaning of sand helps reinforce the themes in Perle Fine’s abstract work. Ernesto

The exhibit “Sand” will be on view at Southampton’s Parrish Museum until September 14. Call 631-283-2118 for more information. Critic’s Choice: Thresholds Of Visibility: Curated by Bonnie Rychlak at Surface Library Gallery

Honoring the Artist: Walter Bernard While this is a landmark year in the history of the Artists/Writers Softball Game, ( its 60th anniversary ), graphic artist and long-time player Walter Bernard continues his normal pace as a busy professional, filmmaker and grandfather to two-year-old twin girls. He’s also the longtime designer of our cover each year for the Artists/Writers Softball Game. Q: Sixty years for the Artists/Writers Game. Sort of like our own Olympics. I mean that in the sense that we have a great tradition and values, too. Maybe I’m overstating the case. A: The game was started in 1948 at Sunday picnics, and artists like de Kooning and Pollock played, according to the history. In the early 1970s, Leif Hope started the game as a charity; Elaine Benson was the manger for the artists. Q: There are many ususual things about the game, but one thing is the charitable aspect. A: Yes. Unlike a lot of events for charity, 100% of the proceeds go to our charities: East End Hospice, East Hampton Day Care, and Phoenix House. Q:Besides the 60th anniversary of the game, there’s something else special about this year’s event; I mean the cover. A: It’s commemorating Roy Scheider, someone who played for a long time. He was voted “Most Valuable Player” in 2006 or 2007. I can’t remember which. He also played every Saturday morning at our long-standing games during the year. Q: I love how you have represented him on the cover, with arms raised over his head, in a Rockylike pose. Where did that come from?

A: It was a photograph; I believe his wife, Brenda, took it. Q: You gave us a picture of Roy that not many people saw, certainly not his fans. How would you

describe Roy’s role in the games? How would you characterize him when he was playing? A: At our Saturday games, for example, he was always extremely friendly, enthusiastic, knew everyone’s name; he always pitched. We looked forward to his being there. Q: What draws people to baseball? Why was it imporant to you? A: We learn from our parents. At least I did. My father was a baseball fan, and I’d play “catch” with him. Q: There are so many memories connected with that. The same was true with my own father and me., but I’m really not good at athletics. Speaking of memories, the film you did with your art group about Sandra Day O’Connor, Portraits of a Lady, will serve as a potent reminder of her service. It’s going to be broadcast on Showtime on September 11. That date is one ultimate memory as well. How would you describe Justice O’Connor? A: I had never met her before we did the film. I had no idea what she’d be like. We didn’t know that she would get involved in the project like she did. She interacted with all the artists; she relaxed everyone, told funny stories. Q: We all look forward to seeing the program. A: Me, too. – Marion Wolberg Weiss Potraits of a Lady will air on Showtime on September 11 at 7:30 p.m. Dan’s Papers covers curated by Dan Rattiner and designed by Kelly Merritt and Dan Rattiner.

Fine Arts/Books

The Water’s Edge...by Daniel Judson By Jim Marquardt If you like a mystery full of red herrings, spiced with grisly murders and peopled by forlorn characters running from something or other, then this crime novel by Daniel Judson is just the thing to drag to the beach. It takes place on the East End, in a span of 24 hours, in an off-season setting of rain and fog. Fog is a good analogy for the complicated plot. Judson’s description of felonies and corruption makes Southampton sound like the Wild West. The East End milieu should be a nice fillip as the author drops the names of real and imaginary businesses and locales, but it’s only good for passing interest. Like most murder mysteries, it’s not a cheerful story. And it’s not about the beautiful people who clog the Hamptons in summer. The players are cops, criminals or blue-collar grunts. One of the challenges is to follow the parallel sagas of two protagonists. Jake “Payday” Bechet is a retired pug living with the beautiful Gabrielle Marie Olivo. When things get rough, Bechet stashes her in his Brooklyn hideout left to him by his felonious father. At one time Bechet worked as an enforcer for the Castello crime family dealing in illicit drugs. He finally broke away from them and took up a job as co-owner of a local cab company. But Jorge Castello wants him back to sniff out a traitor in his gang. Despite his reluctance, he’s not above knocking off a couple of bad guys when necessary. The other main character is Tommy Miller, former Southampton cop and private investigator, now living above a restaurant in a building he owns near the train station. (Say, isn’t there a restaurant in that very location?) His father was a corrupt Southampton police chief until he was murdered by hired killers and replaced by Chief Roffman (we never found his first name) who asks Miller’s help in solving the crime. The novel starts with the macabre scene of two minor miscreants hanging from the railroad bridge over the Shinnecock Canal. They worked for Castello and were stupid enough to think they could skim money and drugs from him in the course of their nefarious duties. The Water’s Edge is a shuttered restaurant on the canal where the bad guys do bad stuff to other bad guys. Judson sprinkles in a few more haunted characters to make an almost impenetrable mixture. Bobby Falcetti drives for the cab company and is kept busy ferrying other characters around the area until he gets his nose into trouble. Kay Barton, another former Southampton cop and a friend of Miller’s, left the force after a miserable love affair with Chief Roffman. She plays a heroic role in sorting out the mess. Detective Mancini is assigned to solve the bridge hangings, but he has a much bigger agenda than a couple of murders and ultimately wants to get rid of Roffman. Throughout the novel, Miller keeps thinking about the mysterious Abby Shepherd, who left him a couple of years ago because he was too engrossed in his job. He should have been relieved, she really wasn’t very nice, but Miller worries about her and keeps expecting her to reappear. At one time she worked at Le Chef on Job’s Lane, which the author says is a French restaurant. A couple of lethal Algerians, LeCur Junior and Senior, work for Castello and do his dirtiest jobs, like using ice picks on the good guys. At some point, Bechet and Miller realize it’s going to take the two of them to unravel this plot and they begin working together. It isn’t until page 331 of 374 pages that we get some clue of what’s been going on when the dying Falcetti tells all to Bechet in a monologue that

sounds like Charlie Chan wrapping up one of his old movies. In the course of the novel, various characters ask themselves long lists of rhetorical questions, which of course go unanswered. Judson writes clear prose, but he explains far too much, stretching and slowing down the narrative. If an editor had trimmed it to around 300 pages, it would be a crisper, faster moving story. Supposedly taking place over 24 hours, by the end of the novel, it feels more like a month. An editor also might have caught a few

quirky ingredients. Several characters are always pulling on and taking off galoshes, presumably to mask their footprints, but after a while the repetitive mention of such old-fashioned footwear gets undeserved attention. Maybe galoshes are a police thing? Also there’s so much activity involving telephones – cell phones, pay phones, home phones – how to use them without being traced, or when not to use them, that we wonder if the author ever worked for Verizon.

Bit by Bit, Putting it Together in Cold Soups before returning to Southold, where he opened the North Fork Table and Inn with his wife, Claudia Fleming, pastry chef extraordinaire. Just assemble the ingredients for his chilled white grape gazpacho, blend, chill, pour and voila – a delicious soup to cool the palate. GEORGE MENDES’ AMAZING GAZPACHO Serves 6-8 4 large ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped coarsely, about 3 cups 1 Kirby cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut coarsely 1 medium red bell pepper, cored, seeds removed and chopped coarsely 1/2 medium onion, peeled and chopped coarsely 3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped coarsely 1 cup cubed day old crusty bread 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar 2 tablespoon raspberry vinegar Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper to taste Tiny cubes brioche toasted for garnish

Cold soups were on my agenda for this week’s column. The timing couldn’t have been more fortuitous when three remarkable chefs, George Mendes, Guy Reuge and Gerry Hayden, served forth three superlative chilled gazpachos, each one simple, unusual and delicious at the James Beard Foundation’s annual Chefs and Champagne event held at Wölffer Estate Vineyards in Sagaponack on July 26. The mission of the Foundation is to celebrate culinary excellence in the United States with support for culinary scholarship programs. All 36 talented chefs represented at the event offered some of the most delicious varieties of cuisine. The significant honoree was Wolfgang Puck, who lauded Long Island as a vegetable garden with great vineyards surrounded by seas offering the best fish and seafood varieties. “Food and wine in America is why we are where we are today,” he continued. George Mendes, a Culinary Institute of America graduate, worked with his mentor David Bouley and had “dream jobs” at some of the best restaurants here and abroad. He will open his own restaurant, Aldea, later this year in New York City. His classic but simple “overnight” red tomato gazpacho has the freshness, the texture and tang to titillate your taste buds. Guy Reuge of Mirabelle attracted global attention when he was awarded La Toque d’Argent, a much sought culinary award from the Society of Master Chefs of France. He and his wife Maria celebrated 24 years of their restaurant in St. James. He gives us a unique watermelon gazpacho. Many of our readers will remember Gerry Hayden

when he opened East Hampton Point as executive chef in 1993 through 1995. He was executive chef at Charlie Palmer’s Aureole in New York City and chef/owner of Amuse restaurant in New York City

1. Rinse tomatoes, cut a criss-cross on the rounded side and blanch them in boiling water for 30-40 seconds until the skins loosen. Cool under running water then peel and seed the tomatoes. Chop coarsely and place them in a large bowl. Rinse and prep cucumber, bell pepper, onion and garlic. Add to the tomatoes. Top with the cubed bread, the olive oil, and vinegars. Carefully stir to mix and season with salt (continued on next page)

and pepper to taste. Cover the bowl securely and refrigerate for 24 hours or longer. 2. Next day, place the ingredients in batches as necessary, and blend at high speed until mixture is a smooth, but slightly thickened consistency. Taste to adjust seasoning as necessary. Can be prepared ahead and refrigerated up to 2-3 days. Serve cold with brioche garnish GUY REUGE’S CHILLED WATERMELON RED BELL PEPPER SOUP Yield: 2 quarts 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 medium size onion, thinly sliced 1 fennel bulb, trimmed of fronds and core and thinly sliced 1/2 tablespoon coriander seeds 1 star anise Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper 1 cup dry white wine 4 large or 6 medium red bell pepper, cored, seeded and coarsely cut, about 5 cups The flesh of half a large watermelon, about 8 cups cut coarsely 1 teaspoon dried epazote* 1. In a large 5-6 quart saucepan heat the oil; add onion and fennel slices, coriander seeds and anise. Place a square of wax paper over the ingredients, cover the pot and sweat the vegetables and seasonings over low heat for 15 minutes. Remove wax paper and discard. Add white wine to deglaze the pan and simmer briskly until reduced by one-half. 2. Add watermelon pieces and diced peppers to the saucepan and toss to thoroughly mix ingredients. Season mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Cook, with cover ajar, over medium heat until vegetables are tender, about 45-50 minutes. If soup does not generate enough liquid add about 1/2 cup water. (This is the amount I needed when testing the recipe.) 3. Transfer soup in batches into a blender and puree until smooth then pass through a sieve or food mill over a clean bowl to rid any excess debris. Taste

soup for salt and pepper and chill thoroughly. When completely chilled, stir in the epazote which will heighten the flavor of the soup. Can be prepared up to 2 days ahead and refrigerated then taste again for seasonings. * According to Harold McGee’s revised On Food and Cooking, Scribner, 2004, epazote is a scented member of the large “goosefoot” family which also provides us with spinach, beets and the grain quinoa. It lends a characteristic aroma to Mexican beans, soups and stews. That aroma is variously described as herbaceous and penetrating. GERRY HAYDEN’S GREEN GRAPE GAZPACHO Serves 6 1 pint plain yogurt, preferably Catapano dairy goat yogurt – also available at Green Thumb in Water Mill 1/2 pound seedless green grapes, washed 1/4 cup blanched and toasted almonds 4 ounces goat cheese, preferably Catapano 1 teaspoon coriander seeds, toasted 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 16 marcona almonds*, roasted, salted and coarsely sliced 1. Place the yogurt, grapes, almonds, goat cheese, coriander seeds and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a blender. Blend until ingredients are thoroughly pureed and smooth. Refrigerate the soup for 3-4 hours or overnight until ready to serve. 2. Serve well chilled with a drizzle of olive oil and sliced salted almond garnish. * Marcona almonds known as the “queen of almonds” are imported from Spain. They may be difficult to find and are a bit pricey. For my own version I blanch at least 2 cups of whole almonds, peel and kosher salt them then let them dry on a parchment lined sheet pan for 48 hours. Transfer almonds on the lined sheet pan to a preheated 225 oven for 1 hour-1 hour and 15 minutes until toasty beige. Store them in a covered tin – they make a wonderful snack at cocktail time or for garnish as above. All above recipes are adapted from the originals. Located on the Atlantic Ocean in Westhampton Beach, The Saltwater Grill serves up amazing ocean views, friendly service, and classic, simply grilled seafood and steaks.

Muse Restaurant and Aquatic Lounge Water Mill Square, Water Mill 631-726-2606

Photos by S. Galardi

By Susan M. Galardi The very business card of Muse Restaurant & Aquatic Lounge foreshadows what’s to come. The card is black – not a color typically associated with dining establishments. On the gold logo is the tag line, “Inspirational Forward Cooking.” A few steps into the restaurant brings you to one of the most unusual and beautiful bars anywhere, with a shimmering water wall. The bar top itself is a horizontal fish tank (designed/built by Noel Rose of Anchor Aquarium) with gorgeous tropical fish swimming under patrons’ gorgeous tropical drinks. The intimate yet uncluttered dining area is eclectic and intriguing – an odd combination of artwork, finishes and décor elements that to this writer evoked Indonesia, to another diner, Spain. The walls Sesame Seared Tuna; Below, Guifferida at the aqua bar have a brushed goldleaf finish, the menus come in oversized sushi offering of julienned jicama, carrots, gold folders (dinner) and silver (dessert). The ceiling celery, cucumber, squash wrapped in a sheath of is dark cobalt blue on one end fading to a deep emercucumber, with a lemon grass ginger vinaigrette that ald on the other. Designed by owner/chef Matthew makes you want to crunch every stick. A Summer Guifferida (of Inn at Quogue among other East End Apple salad was a delicious melody of flavor and texspots) these elements lead another step into a wildly ture: crunchy frissee, granny smith slices, candied fantastic, highly original dining adventure. macadamia nuts, smoked salmon ‘bacon’ and (yes, Muse, in its second year at Watermill Center, is not there’s more) served on a gruyere cheese bread pudfor the timid or conservative diner. It’s for those who ding. Take that! And that! are ready for combinations of flavors, colors and texWe tried three entrees, which, with Guifferida’s tures that test the resolve of your palate. Like the hyper-creativity, seemed like a dozen. The Wasabi décor, the food is a fusion of many influences – a Pea and Pepper Long Island Duck au Poivre was a ‘world music’ texture in each dish, magnified and juicy, meaty rolled breast of duck with what tasted amplified. For example, listen to this appetizer: like a soy marinade topped with crunchy crushed “Monkey Business … An Experiment in Bananas. 1. Roast pork and charred corn tamale wrapped in banana leaves; 2. Banana crusted seared sea scallop with red curry and coconut nache; 3. Applewood smoked bacon mofungo …” And there were two more after that. Each little tidbit was fully loaded, popping with flavor. Numbers 1 and 3 were exactly what I love about roast pork and mofungo, but without the things I hate – namely, fatty, grizzly bits. Both were lean and fresh tasting. Number 2? That should be a main course. Just delicious. A vegetarian sushi salad was a veggie’s dream: an

wasabi peas! No bones, no mess, just bite after bite of rich, meaty flavor. Sides were a sweet Vidalia onion duck confit, and a sweet yet potent gingery potato/apple chutney. The Teriyaki and Sesame Seared Tuna was a great tuna steak that barely saw the searing pan, with a crunchy sesame coating. Very nice. Blackened “Mardi Gras” swordfish was slightly spicy, fresh and perfectly cooked. It was served with rich green tomato stir-fried salsa, and with cheddar cheese oatmeal which completely wowed one fellow diner. The entrée portions are generous – I would say easily shared if you got a few appetizers – and they hover mostly at the $30 mark. Desserts were also fully realized, but after the explosion of flavors in the meal, my favorite was “The best vanilla crème brulee in the world.” Lightly sweet, not too rich. The restaurant has a good wine list, and a fine selection of wines by the glass, as well as crazy mixed drinks and digestives. Muse is a great date restaurant, especially if you start at that magical bar, as well as a good place to go with a small group and share. And by all means bring the grandparents – the cool ones.

Letters BOTTLE-CISE Dear Dan, I would like to share my latest exercise tip with you and your readers. I use two one gallon plastic bottles. The handles make for a comfortable fit for your hands. Doing curls etc. Works great! You can increase the work out, as you get stronger. One bottle is filled with laundry detergent; the other bottle is filled with fabric softener. The last time I worked out using the bottles I hurt my back. I think the next time I work out using the bottles, I will use two bottles of fabric softener. That way it won’t be so hard on my back! I know I’m getting stronger. Every time I do a load of laundry and work out the bottles fell lighter! You will find this a good way improve your health well at least your clothes will be clean! Borski Via e-mail Try them filled with Vodka. That will cure your back problem. – DR MASS TRANSIT Dear Dan, “The View From the Ferry” (Greg Burt – July 18) reminds me of potential future transportation options from New York City to both the North and South Fork. It brings to mind the explorer Henry Hudson. Our waterways are an underutilized natural asset. Most of our existing public transportation and roadways are already operating at or above capacity. New ferry services can be implemented far more quickly than construction of new commuter rail or highways. These can take years or even decades by the time you complete environmental reviews, planning, design, engineering, real estate acquisition, permits, procurement, construction, budgeting, identifying and securing funding over time to cover all of the above various project costs before reaching beneficial use. Completing all of the above along with finding funding for ferry boats, docks and parking with costs in the millions may be easier than finding the billions of dollars necessary for construction of new or extended subway, commuter rail or highways.

LOOKING BACK Dear Dan, Re: Good Ground, N.Y. At Hampton Bays Back in those days I remember “Hootie” King Who collected everything . . . And artists drew . . . And sculptors met . . . And scallopers . . . And fishermen . . . And car collectors knew so well While woods and barn Behind his house Was strewn - a shell of this, A bit of that, propellers Mixed with bric-a-brac . . . but Bentleys, Rolls’, And of course horses had a way with him . . . Like chemicals - to open shells . . . The house A custom framing shop In back rooms Paintings on the floor . . . I envied him On just a whim at auction Bought miles of undersea In fact - that cable was a precious scrap. His wife was sweet To share a meal, His heart was large, And as he smiled His eyes would squint, and Then exclaim: “Well, well” . . . Ah, yes While wishing best of things, How I remember “Hootie” King. JAMES R. O’GARA Riverdale, Bronx Via e-mail

ferryboats can also make a positive contribution to air quality. Larry Penner Great Neck, New York Via e-mail Not using a combustion engine makes even a better contribution. – DR FUELING UP Dear Dan, In your July 25th issue of Dan’s Papers, in the article about the Montauk Yacht Club (page 39), you mentioned that in 1944 there were only two docks in Lake Montauk, and referred two one of them as “Harbor Bonner’s Fuel Dock.” Charlie Bonner was my father’s great uncle. As far as we know that dock was always referred to, as “Charlie Bonner’s Fuel Dock,” and we’re curious as to where you heard the name you used in the article? Jill Osterholm McClure Via e-mail Writer needs a hearing air. – DR HIP,HIP, HOORAY! Dear Dan, Dan, I just read about your marriage in the Styles section of the NY Times. Mazel Tov! Sincerely, Karen Silverman Via e-mail We actually got married, me and Chris, at the Mohonk Mountain Lodge. – DR

Police Blotter Asleep At The Lawn A man in Hampton Bays was arrested after he drove his car onto the lawn of personal property and fell asleep. Owners of the property alerted police and he was brought to jail. Police also referred to the owner a good landscaper in the area. * * * Convertible A man left his wallet that included his driver’s license and credit cards on the seat of his convertible while was parked in East Hampton. The convertible top was down, although the man did lock the car, somehow a thief was able to find a way into the convertible and steal his wallet. * * *

Stolen Liquor A man in Southampton was arrested after he went to a restaurant and stole a few bottles of liquor in front of employees in the restaurant. Police took the man away and returned the bottles, which found their way into paying customers hands. * * * Rented The Home Some renters in Southampton must have thought that they were charged too much. According to a report, approximately $10,000 worth of items had appeared missing from a home that was recently rented. When the owners of the home realized that many items had been stolen, they contacted police. * * *

Stolen Hybrid A hybrid bicycle was stolen in Sag Harbor. The bicycle is a hybrid of pedaling power and electric motor power. Police are ruling out gas stations as a possible location where they might find the suspect. * * * Loud Noises A man began yelling at a police officer in Southampton after he disagreed with a ticket. The yelling turned into cursing. The officer did not respond to his request to dismiss the ticket. * * * Propane A man in Speonk reported to police that somebody stole a propane tank from outside his home. On the upside, the man has not had gas since then. * * * Shelter Island Cricket, cricket, cricket. Hoo hoo, hoo hoo. – Written and Compiled by David Lion Rattiner
