Garbage Can Philosophy A Trash Container, Workman, Hillside, Homeowner & Driveway By Dan Rattiner I live on the side of a hill overlooking Three Mile Harbor. You drive up Three Mile Harbor Road and there I am on the right, across from the water, with a narrow asphalt driveway that goes up the hill, passes the house on the side, and then dead-ends around the back of the house into a parking lot. As the front door to the house is along the side where you drive up, there is a brick walkway going both to the driveway and to the parking area. There is nothing particularly unusual about this. Until about four years ago, we had a wooden enclosure around the back of the house in which you could snugly fit three large plastic garbage cans. The enclosure had a lid. Twice a week, a truck would come up the hill and a garbage man would hop out, open the bin, take out the cans and empty them into the big maw that was at the back of the truck. Then he would drive off. During that time, our garbage company, which had its offices in Springs, was Stanley and Son. They were nice people. I’d call them for a special pickup once in a while. They’d bill me. I’d write a

check. About six years ago, a company called Winter Services from Bay Shore threatened to come in and compete with our local guys. Stanley made a big stink about it, got articles in the local paper and sent out press releases. They urged us to keep using them and said that there were rumors Winter had mob connections. We wouldn’t want that. And surely, we didn’t. Winter lost that fight. But then, a year later, we got a letter that Stanley was now a branch of

garbage pickups. They brought one by for us to look at. It was green, about four feet high and two feet square. The lid, on a hinge, closed with a nice thud. Where it met the ground on one side there were tiny legs. Where it met the ground on other side, there were little wheels. At the top of the side with the wheels, there was a handle. It was a pull can. What a great idea! Since there was no charge for this we tried it out, and it was most excellent. We soon tore down our smelly wooden garbage enclosure with the smaller cans in it. This would work very well. Hooray for Winter! Now, I did wonder where exactly I ought to put this big garbage can. I didn’t want people getting out of their cars to see it behind the house. And I didn’t want them seeing it along the driveway going up the hill. And of course I didn’t want to have it down at the bottom of the hill. Who wants to carry plastic garbage bags all the way down a steep driveway? There is a low white stucco wall, about two feet high, that runs along the far side of the driveway all the way up to our garage at the back of the parking area. I decided that along this wall up by the garage would be the best place for it. It would be out of the way. It did mean that on the occasions when cars in the driveway blocked the garbage man’s truck, he’d have to park down below and navigate his way through those cars to

...when the garbage man left, the can was farther downhill than where it had been when he arrived.

Winter, and so we should get used to the new name, but nothing else would change. Winter would still have the office at the same location in Springs where Stanley was before. You’d probably even get the same people when you called. There was no further mention of the mob. In any case, the Winter service included, without additional charge, a really nice, very large rectangular plastic garbage can, as big as all three of my smaller cans put together, made for

get to it, but I figured he did that anyway when we had the wooden bin. And that, I thought, was about all I would be thinking about this situation. I do have a busy life, after all. As time went by, however, I noticed a strange thing. It was one thing to drag the cans down the hill past the cars when we had the wooden bin and there was no choice in the matter. With the new situation. the garbage man was surely wondering, “Why, when the garbage can is on wheels, do I have to navigate through all the cars to get the garbage? Why don’t they leave it down the hill a bit?” I never spoke to the garbage man about this — though I do recall on a rainy morning near Christmas one year coming upon him, a soaking wet fellow who did not speak English, and I, in the spirit of the season, gave him 20 bucks, thus sharing a nod and smile with him. But we never spoke about this situation. What I did notice, however, was creep. The garbage would be picked up every Tuesday and Friday. And each time during the first few weeks, I noticed that when the garbage man left, the can was further downhill than where it had been when he arrived. I’d put it back up top, of course. But after a while, either because I was feeling a little sorry for the guy, or because it was another thing to remember, or because it was indeed a little chore, I began to not do it. It was certainly nothing to be calling Winter about. The guy had a hard enough job to do. And we were talking about him moving it maybe six

feet. When I gave up moving it back, however, the creep continued. The weeks went by. At the end of the first week, it was six feet from the garage, and the second week it was 10 feet from the garage, and the third week it was 15 feet from the garage. Finally, it was 50 feet from the garage, which is just across the driveway from the front door. That wouldn’t do. I moved it 15 feet further up. And so it stayed 15 feet further up for about a year. It really didn’t look all that bad, this garbage can up there, I decided. But we’re talking about a total of maybe four YEARS that this had been going on. And soon, with brazen audacity, the garbage man began once again to leave it further down the hill. So again, I brought it back up, not just halfway, but all the way this time, right up to the garage. It hadn’t been that far up in years. This was punishment.

But then the creep began again. And finally, I decided, I don’t know why, just to let it continue. The creep stopped just opposite the front door for a while, and I imagined the garbage man thinking, can I get away with this? Will he notice? And then, it began again. Now, it was heading further down the hill. Day by day, inch by inch. And I did nothing. When it got to about 40 feet down the hill from opposite the front door, it stopped. And again it stayed there for a while. It was, indeed, a bit of an inconvenience for us, and the family asked me about it, but I told everybody that this was a scientific experiment I was conducting, and so just put up with it, and they did. And then, it began to creep back UP the hill. I could hardly believe it. This was astounding! It got up to the place opposite the front door in about a month, and then, in another month, it was back up there halfway to the garage. And there, finally, and once and for all, it stopped. That’s it. It’s been there ever since. We have, the garbage man and I, made a sort of mutual, decorative, house-and-garden, Martha Stewart-inspired arrangement together. Next week, I plan to tape an envelope with a 20-dollar bill inside to the the garbage bin with the word THANKS on the front. I’ve also been considering buying a large 50pound houseplant in a pot to place on the ground where the garbage bin is as a sort of door stop and “game over” indicator. But I don’t think I will do this. The games shall go on. •

Dan’s Papers 36th Annual Kite Fly at Sagg Main Beach was a resounding success. With the largest turn out ever and the most kites in the air this fun filled family day was high flying and uplifting. With contestants from around the corner and around the globe the busy judges had a hard time narrowing down the choices. As late as today when looking at the photos there were still comments of “oh wow I never even saw that kite” and “Gee that one should have gotten an award”. The wind was perfect and the skies were blue, despite several major kite string tangles and some lost kites everyone had a wonderful time.

Artists 4, Writers 2 The Hard-Fought 60th Annual Artists-Writers Softball Game By Dan Rattiner Last Saturday afternoon, in East Hampton, about 300 people came out to watch the 60th Annual Artists & Writers Softball Game. This is the longest-running sporting event in the Hamptons, and by all accounts, this one, a close game with a spectacular ninth-inning ending, was one of the very best of them. The event took place on the sandlot softball field behind the East Hampton Waldbaum’s, with a first pitch thrown out at 3 p.m. The final out usually comes sometime around 6 p.m. This game, however, filled with great defensive plays, moved along very quickly. The dramatic conclusion came at about 10 after five.

It was a sunny day. Landscape architect Joe Sopiak was the starting pitcher for the Artists, and he played the whole game through. He had been the most valuable player of last year’s game, which the Artists won, and this year, he seemed to have it in his head that he would repeat his win, but this time, by pitching the ball with greater velocity than he had before. As this is a slow pitch contest, everyone was taken aback by the speed show he embarked upon. He pitched two full innings without having any trouble putting down the Writers, but his behavior worried me. As the umpire of the game, standing behind him and calling balls and strikes, I wanted him to stop this. I told him so.

“Whoever heard of such a thing?” he replied. I persisted. Finally I ran off the field between the third and fourth inning and spoke to Leif Hope about it. Hope is the organizer of the game, and he agreed with me. I told Sopiak he either had to slow down or I’d disallow his pitches. Sopiak slowed, but he didn’t like it. In these circumstances, the Writers knicked him for two runs in the top of the fourth. But through five innings, that was it. It was a pitcher’s battle, to be sure, with New York Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman working a shutout for the Writers through the five innings. An interesting addition to the game was our (continued on the next page)

VERED SLAPPED WITH FINE, LEFT WITH QUESTIONS By Debbie Tuma Things have been fairly quiet in the artopening scene in East Hampton since the Memorial Day Weekend brouhaha, when two neighboring galleries were given summonses for serving alcohol and having gatherings without the required one-day permit, and one of the owners got arrested. On May 24, Ruth Vered, owner of Vered Gallery, was hauled away from her big opening day party in handcuffs, after she refused to shut down her bar and asked the police to leave her gallery. It was the opening reception for the work of celebrity photographer Steven

Klein, and she was taken away by police as crowds pleaded for them to let her go. She had two sets of charges — a criminal one for violating the state liquor laws, and another for violating the village code that requires a gathering permit for over 50 people. She was scheduled for a June 25 court appearance, which was postponed until August 13. The police also arrived at an opening party at the nearby Walk Tall Gallery owned by Wendy Wachtel, to present a summons for failure to have an alcohol permit. Because Wachtel was not present, police gave the summons to an assistant, Brittany Demmler, who has since

left the gallery. Demmler’s court appearance was also scheduled for June 25, but she was told to come back on August 13. On that date she appeared and the case was adjourned “on contemplation of dismissal” for six months. If no other tickets are given during that time, the case against Demmler would be dismissed. “I have been working with the police on this, and I’m hoping my landlord will give his permission for me to get an alcohol permit,” said Wachtel. “But I’m glad it’s over.” Last Wednesday, Vered sent her attorney, (continued on page 50)

Congressman, Tim Bishop, who started at third base for the Artists. He dropped an easy ground ball in the first inning, but then redeemed himself in the second with a diving catch. Congressmen aren’t supposed to be diving into the dust like this. Bishop did. He played a great game.

In the fourth inning, actor Alec Baldwin came in to umpire calling balls and strikes behind the pitcher’s mound, giving me a much-needed break. Both the top and bottom of the inning were filled with action, and although nobody scored, they kept Baldwin busy the whole time. He was a good sport and turned that inning into

great entertainment. When I returned for the fifth inning, I decided that though I lack any acting talent, I could at least shout out the balls and strikes louder and with more conviction, which I did for the rest of the game. The Writers had a big rally in the top of the fifth. With two outs and two runners on, home run hitter Bill Collage hit a huge drive to deep centerfield. It was going over the wall, but Artist John Longmire robbed him of a home run by leaping above the wall to bring it down. In the bottom of the fifth inning, Zuckerman was replaced on the mound by Benito Vila. And the Artists welcomed him by knocking him around. With two on, actor Chevy Chase hit a hard bouncer to Lee Minetree at shortstop, but Minetree could not decide to which base he wanted to throw the ball. So everybody was safe and the bases were loaded. Before the dust cleared, the Artists had scored three times. And this lead, three to two, carried them through until the bottom of the eighth, when they added one more. It was a hot day. And by the time we got into the eighth inning, I was occasionally losing track of the balls and strikes, the number of outs and what planet I was on. With the count two and one, at one point, Sopiak pitched a ball high and outside to Vila. I (continued on page 46)

Adverse Possession Live on it Openly for 10 Years or More, Property is Yours to Keep By Dan Rattiner Did you know that if you take possession of somebody else’s property for 10 years and the owner doesn’t kick you off, you can own it? I didn’t either until it happened to me. It’s called “adverse possession,” it’s really quite remarkable, and it’s the law. At the present time, there are two extraordinary cases involving adverse possession going on in this area — one in Montauk, which just this past week has drawn to a close, and the other at the far other reaches of Long Island in Brooklyn, which has just begun. My own situation with adverse possession

took place in 1977 when I bought the property where I presently live on Three Mile Harbor Road in East Hampton. The owner of this property, which is a half-acre overlooking the water, walked me around and proudly showed me the place, including the front yard, which was substantial enough to throw a ball around in. At the closing, however, I learned that onehalf of the front yard actually did not belong to the property being sold. It belonged to a neighbor, but it had been part of the front yard of this property for more than 20 years. That day, sitting in the chair at the closing, I was presented with the option of either not

buying the house, or going ahead with the house, knowing that I’d have to deal with this situation. I went ahead. And then, rather than begin the worry that might be involved with my making an ownership claim of this triangular piece of my front lawn, I simply bought it from the neighbor. And that was the end of the problem. To prove adverse possession in New York State, you must “fly the flag,” which is to say, actively and aggressively take possession of the property, inform the person who owns it you are doing so, fence it off and wait 10 years. If there is no objection, it’s yours. And (continued on the next page)

GUNFIGHT IN THE NIGHT IN NORTHWEST. 2 DIE. By Dan Rattiner Deep in the forest of the Northwest section of East Hampton Town, under a full moon and just before dawn on Monday morning, two people were shot to death in circumstances that so far have baffled both the authorities and the neighbor in that area. What is known is this. At 5:45 a.m., a call came into 911, but when it was answered there was no one on the line. Two minutes later, a second call came in, but before it could be answered, the caller hung up. Two minutes after that the 911 phone rang again. And this time, a male voice said this:

“Shots fired at 28 Cedar Trail.” And then that was it. The police arrived at this home — a grand, two-story brick residence beautifully appointed, with gardens and a swimming pool — at just before 6 a.m. They rang the doorbell. No one answered. Then, finding the door locked, they broke it down. Downstairs, it appeared no one was home. But upstairs, in the master bedroom, they found Georgiana Stockel, age 64, in bed, still alive but unconscious from a gunshot wound in her head. Next to her was her husband, Lester Stockel, also 64 and also with a gunshot in his head. He

was dead, and in his hand was a 9 mm semiautomatic pistol. Mrs. Stockel was taken to Stony Brook Hospital, but soon died there. That is all anybody knows. Living in homes on wooded lots elsewhere on that narrow dead-end street are numerous prominent East Enders, including Pat Trunzo, the builder, whose house, coincidentally, caught fire several weeks ago. Also on the street lives a physician, Dr. Arthur Goldberg, and his wife. And also on the street are Ed Van Dyke, an accountant, and John Fierro, who owns Fierro’s Pizza on (continued on page 53)

if there is an objection and you can persuade a judge you’ve done all that, it is also yours. Montauk’s Rusty Leaver owns a 24-acre ranch out toward the lighthouse called Deep Hollow Ranch, where he grazes horses and cattle. Ten years ago, he created a four-house development along the property line on one wooded side of the pasture. As an incentive, he offered prospective buyers a view of pastureland forever. He couldn’t guarantee the whole ranch, but he did offer an adjacent part of his land, 2.8 acres, a narrow strip directly in front of the four houses, as a scenic and conservation easement to be administered by the town. Horses and cattle would graze there forever. This worked fine for a while. The four

houses together would own the land as an association. And Leaver was happy to give it up. He could use it for grassland anyway. Two years ago, however, a man who bought two of the four parcels, Jim Esposito, started building his house there, and demanded that Leaver remove his livestock and move back the split rail fence. He wanted the open land. Leaver no longer owned it. He didn’t like big animals, apparently. In a flurry of activity, it was learned that the charge given to the town to administer this property was that they should find uses for it that would allow the owners of it, the association, to enjoy it for “recreational use.” This is not what was intended. But there it was.

Leaver sued, saying his animals on the property established adverse possession. But a judge has now ruled that his keeping his livestock there was only by permission of the owners, which was the association he set up to own it. Therefore, it was just the equivalent of a long-term tenancy. It did not qualify for adverse possession. Leaver now has to move his pasture fence a few hundred feet away from the edge of the current pasture on that side. And the homeowners can now enjoy “recreation” on the pastureland. Oh, well. While this lawsuit is winding down, another one, in Brooklyn, is heating up. Eight years ago, a man named Darren Miller saw a five-acre empty lot on Erskine Street near the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn and figured that nobody would notice if he charged people to park their cars on it. When that worked out pretty well, he paved the property and put a fence around it. It is today, or it was until last Wednesday, a well-known parking lot, with a booth and signs and Miller there to take the money, which was $200 a month per car. Last Wednesday morning, the City of New York had Miller arrested. Turns out this vacant lot is owned by the City of New York. They came there demanding he close his business, and when he refused, they charged him with trespassing, being in possession of stolen property (several cars on the lot had been abandoned there by people who had run off) and operating an illegal dump (the stolen cars). They hauled him off to jail. He is there today. And the police have shut down the operation. Miller’s lawyer, Vincent Gerardi, says that things probably wouldn’t have come to this if Miller, last year, hadn’t decided that he ought to clean things up by taking legal possession of his property through “adverse possession.” Nobody had ever bothered him. He was there near to 10 years. So he went before a judge and started the process. And boom. One can almost see the bureaucrats in the City of New York, checking the law, checking the calendar and noting they just had a few months to act with this guy. And if they didn’t, five precious acres of the City of New York would be gone forever. Couldn’t have that. Reporters interviewed a truck driver named Keith Taylor who for years had parked four trucks on the property. “I thought this was a legitimate parking lot. Where am I going to go now? I can’t park them on the street,” he said. Well, he’ll think of something. Miller will be arraigned on Thursday. •

Plum Ridiculous DHS Rep. Doesn’t Understand Why Folks Don’t Trust the Govt. By Tiffany Razzano North Fork legislators, officials and residents came out in droves to an August 12 public hearing conducted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to speak out the potential upgrade of the bio-level 3 laboratory on Plum Island to a bio-level 4. At bio-level 3, the lab studies animal diseases — primarily foot and mouth disease — that pose no threat to humans. A level 4 lab would see the inclusion of more dangerous animal diseases that could be transferred to humans. Several of these diseases have no known cure. The primary concern regarding the North Fork is, not surprisingly, safety.

“There are no evacuation routes and no availability to build evacuation routes,” said Scott Russell, Southold Town supervisor. “You can’t build on an island where there are already roads and the rest is water. You can’t build roads on water.” “It’s extremely difficult to evacuate the North Fork and Shelter Island,” said Legislator Ed Romaine. The current plan is suited for weather-related issues that require evacuation of flood areas, he said. Ironically, the morning after this meeting, news broke that Plum Island was on the laundry list of New York area landmarks targeted by a Pakistani scientist/terror suspect.

Following the meeting regarding Plum Island’s bio-level status, the news rattled the North Fork. “We shouldn’t be so naïve, and it’s no surprise that a major combatant has information on many American landmarks and places like that,” Russell said. “What makes it pertinent is if we upgrade to bio-level 4. Certainly it poses a real threat to people if there’s a threat to it right now at level 3.” Romaine’s biggest concern is that Plum Island is in neither a “no-fly” nor a “no-boating” zone. “You can bring a boat close to shore,” he said. “Those are things that need to be dis(continued on the next page)

McGINTEE STARTS TO REVIVE BUDGET, CAREER By T.J. Clemente Reports of Town of East Hampton Supervisor William McGintee’s political demise are premature. According to his aide, Lynn Ryan, McGintee is now focused on leading the town out of a budget mess that many accuse him of creating. However, Ryan believes that the next few months may end up being McGintee’s finest hour. With the actual number due in on September 30, Ryan said the supervisor is approaching the deficit-creating town budget with a plan to close the gap created over the last few years by raising taxes, raising fees and getting a firm handle

on town health care costs. On the topic of the often scandalous headlines that have announced the town’s financial plight, Ryan believes time will reveal what she called a “trickle-up theory,” meaning that huge budget deficits are now appearing in the county (she put the number at $150 million), the state and, of course, the country, given the record-breaking federal deficit of over one trillion dollars forecasted for 2008. “The supervisor has a plan, and if the board goes along with his plan, things will work out,” Ryan said. The theory is that McGintee — much maligned in recent months for budg-

et deficits and a revenue shortfall — has an opportunity to lead the town through a crisis that was not totally his making. Bad management of the town’s financial situation may have stretched back through a few administrations. Ryan said the supervisor regrets not sticking to his 24% tax increase proposal in 2005, after the board expressed no support for it, and said, “This time, if the board follows the supervisor’s recommendations, all will be in good shape.” On the other side of the fence, many believe there’s a credibility problem — some citizens (continued on page 48)

cussed. Even at a bio-level 3, they should be discussed and reviewed.” There is a misconception that, should a bomb go off on Plum Island, the viruses would be released and scatter. But Russell said that in actuality, most of them would be destroyed from the heat of the blast. Russell’s concern was for the safety of the workers, including those who ride the Cross Sound Ferry to work, which he says “is a much easier target.” Regarding the terror threat to Plum Island, John Verrico, spokesman for the DHS, Science and Technology division, says the DHS determined that there was no real threat to the Island following the arrest of the terror suspect. “Our senior folks were briefed about that when the arrest was first made. We took a look at the site and didn’t feel any changes had to be made,” he said. As for local fear of a potential release of these viruses, whether at a level 3 or 4, Verrico says their fears are unfounded. “They don’t understand that there really is no situation that would require an evacuation of the area,” he said. “The amount of pathogens on hand are extremely small. We’re just trying to find vaccines. If released, the great majority will die very quickly, almost immediately. There’s not enough quantity of the disease to infect even one person.” Security measures on the island would be beefed up with the upgrade to ensure none of the viruses would be released. And the dis-

eases that come with the new lab that might be transferred from animals to humans would require direct contact with the animal, said Verrico. “But it’s an understandable fear,” he added. “People don’t trust the government, and it’s a shame. We’re really nice people. We’re not trying to do anything scary to folk. We’re not doing anything underhanded. There’s nothing to hide…The risk is considered minimal.” Plum Island is up against five other locations — Athens, Georgia; Manhattan, Kansas; Flora, Mississippi; San Antonio, Texas; and Butner, North Carolina — that are actually lobbying for the bio-level 4 lab to be built in their area. “Other communities actually want it,” Romaine said. He says that there is some economic benefit to having the lab built — about half a billion federal dollars would be funneled into the local economy if the new lab is constructed. The new lab could be built on the mainland for about $500 million, with the cost ballooning to $750 million if it’s built on Plum Island. The old lab on the island would have to be torn down and a new facility built from scratch. “But some people in Homeland Security prefer Plum Island because it is an island and there are no acquisition costs,” Romaine said. The DHS has also said that if Plum Island is not the site of the future bio-level 4 lab, the current lab will be shut down, raising concerns about how this would affect the economy on the North Fork. But Russell feels this is an idle

threat. They’ve recently done over $50 million in upgrades to the existing lab, so why would they just shut it down? “With the kind of money they’ve put into it and the upgrades they’ve done, I’m reasonably sure it will remain a fully functional bio-level 3,” he said. “It’s perfectly suited for it. It’s away from cattle population and animals that could be affected by these diseases, which don’t affect humans. It’s perfect for what it does.” Still, Russell added, “You never know. The federal government is perfectly capable of wasting money.” And with the presidential election coming up, after years of talks about a potential super research center, the DHS is scrambling to make a final decision on the location of the future level 4 lab by December — right before a new administration takes office. This is another reason Russell thinks anything could happen. “A new president could mean a new direction, and we will definitely have a new direction, whether it’s Republican or Democrat,” he said. As for the recent public hearing regarding Plum Island, everything the public had to say will be taken into account when the DHS makes its final decision, Verrico said. “We wanted people to point out things we have to look at. The purpose of having these meetings is to get exactly those comments,” he said. “The community acceptance is part of the criteria for deciding where to place the lab.”

Witchie Havens Sag Harbor Beach Closed for Contamination, Cause is a Mystery By T.J. Clemente You collect your youngsters to go to a nice, gentle beach. But when you get there, you see a sign stating that the beach is closed, having been declared “unsafe for bathing.” So where is this? Bayonne, New Jersey? Staten Island Fishkill’s? No. It’s right in the heart of Sag Harbor at Havens Beach. Wait a minute. How can this be? After all, the Hamptons has spent half a billion dollars in the last 10 years on preservation of land — and there’s contaminated water? Yes. Considerably high levels of coliform bacteria have been found through testing the water at

Havens. Town officials have put forth myriad explanations for what could be the problem, including a pipe that carries storm water into the bay at Havens (exacerbated by some serious rainfall of late), waterfowl excrement, illegal waste discharge from boats, and even dog waste from a nearby area used as a dog run. Whatever the cause, local and county authorities have failed to act. In fact, between 2006 and 2007, more than a half-dozen advisories were issued from the Suffolk County Health Department to prohibit swimming at Havens. This summer, three advisories were issued. The result is a beach with unswimmable water in a beautiful spot right in the heart of town.

I spoke to famous East Hampton plumber “Johnny Pipes,” who thinks the problem is the sewage treatment plant nearby. “I don’t think it’s the storm runoff,” he said. “I think that they are just not doing a thorough job at the sewage treatment plant. If they were, that stuff wouldn’t be in the water.” Sag Harbor Mayor Greg Ferraris has reportedly stated that the advisory is not based on actual readings. (The call to his office for information on this topic was not answered before deadline.) Suffolk County Health official Mac Waters shared his personal thoughts. He said that advisories are issued after severe rainfalls due to the (continued on the next page)

WITH 77 MORE ACRES, MONTAUK IS 40% PRESERVED By T.J. Clemente Since 1980, thousands of acres of Montauk land have been purchased by New York State, Suffolk County and the Town of East Hampton. We can now add to that number 77 acres that the state, county and town are about to purchase for a reported $18 million from former TV talk show host and humorist, Dick Cavett. Cavett, 71, will retain 19.8 acres and his two Stanford White homes. According to East Hampton Town Natural Resources Director Larry Penny, by 1980 protected lands in Montauk included Theodore Roosevelt Park (864 acres), Montauk Point State

Park (200 acres), Montauk Downs (160 acres, purchased in 1978) and Hither Hills (570 acres). Penny puts the pre-1980 number of acres saved somewhere around 1,500. Since then, over 2,600 total acres have been acquired. Using Community Preservation Funds (CPF) the town preserved Shadmoor State Park (98.9 acres), Navy Road (22.4 acres), Koppelman Nature Preserve (770 acres), Culloden Point (174.1 acres), Westlake Hills (188 acres) and Amsterdam Beach (122 acres). Other purchases by the town, state or county (or all three) since 1980 include Camp Hero (414 acres), the Sanctuary (339 acres) and Hither Woods (540

acres). With a square mile equaling 640 acres, Montauk has almost eight square miles of preserved state and county parks, and open land. Considering Montauk consists of 17.5 square miles of land, and 19.8 square miles of land and water, somewhere in the vicinity of 40 percent of Montauk is now preserved land, not to be developed. The Cavett property is located just north of Ditch Plains, and adjacent to Amsterdam Beach. The town plans to build trails on the newly acquired property. Purchases such as this one (continued on page 43)

Perhaps “Johnny Pipes” is correct. Maybe on certain days the sewage plant doesn’t do its job thoroughly. He’s just guessing. And at the moment, so is everyone else. No one is definitive in identifying the problem, or determining a solution — other than removing the lifeguard, which is the official sign that the beach is closed. Yet in fact, people will still swim there. Testing is being done (to be concluded in November) but it is not known what kind of impact the testing will

have on the Board when the results are presented. At the moment this issue is not being discussed perhaps as it should be, either to prevent a misconception if there is one, or to prevent a ruckus from the local real estate community fearing a drop in property values. But the truth is, something must be done to address the very need for advisory notices. The waters around Sag Harbor must remain healthy.

fact that a town drainpipe that handles overflow drains into that beach area. He said the advisory is just a safety warning of the possibility of a potential problem — not necessarily an actual problem. Waters said that the beach was not officially closed and referred me to the Suffolk County Health Public Relations spokesman for more information. Groups including the Peconic Baykeeper are calling for more extensive action because they believe the problem extends beyond the drainpipe. Perhaps there have been days when Havens Beach was not suitable for swimming yet was open, even though high levels of fecal coliform bacteria (enterocci) are found on occasion at considerably higher ratios than desired.

Clash of the Titans Rufus Wainwright and Jessye Norman Re-Write Music History By Susan Galardi Rufus Wainwright is a 35-year-old, two-time Juno Award-winning, edgy, Canadian/American “pop” singer/songwriter. Jessye Norman is a 62-year-old, four-time Grammy Award-winning dramatic soprano of international renown. The two may seem like odd bedfellows, but in fact, their upcoming pairing at the Watermill Center is a stroke of sheer genius. In western music, there has always been a divide between classical and popular genres. Because of hefty commissions from the church and private patrons in the 18th and 19th centuries, the “classical” style dominated the music

scene — it was the “popular” music. Music for the commoners included folk and, earlier, troubador songs — simple ditties often with bawdy lyrics, performed by musicians who traveled from place to place for their gigs. It was very easily accessible music. Today, the tables have turned. The music of 20th- and 21st-century classical composers, with wild explorations of tonality and instrumentation, is challenging and thus limited in its audience, finding a home in a few concert halls, adventurous music festivals and on conservatory recital stages. On the flip side, pop music — most of which is stuck in the 18th-century harmony, song structure (verse/chorus/verse/cho-

rus) and instrumentation (guitars and drums replacing lutes and tambourines) — is ubiquitous. And despite the adage, “There are only two types of music: good music and bad music,” most people are adherents of one style or the other. There is the occasional crossover, when modern composers “borrow” from pop or folk idioms, or vice versa — like the ‘60s rock opera, Tommy, and some modern musical theater that blurs the lines between opera and Broadway. But outside of theatrical music, there is rarely a successful fusion of the two worlds. Rufus Wainwright is one of the few pop artists who has successfully bridged the chasm (continued on the next page)

On the Edge: At SkypeHampton, No Traffic, No Gouging By Victoria L. Cooper Last week, I Skyped the editorial meeting. That’s not a misspelling for “skipped,” even though it was a gorgeous Wednesday in the Hamptons. I worked from the glass table on my deck with the wind in my hair and a glass of iced tea nearby, in front of my laptop. There, I was able to see and hear the rest of the editorial department, just as they could see and hear me. Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis founded Skype in 2003. They created software that makes communicating with people around the world easy and exciting. The only require-

ments are that you have a computer, a web camera and an Internet connection. After downloading the software, you create a username and password, and then you’re able to say hello to your cousin in Australia, your college roommate in Boston or the Dan’s Papers editorial staff in Bridgehampton, no matter where you are. And if both of you are on Skype, it’s free. Based in Luxembourg, Skype is very popular among Europeans and is available in 28 languages (forget that Optimum Triple Play, 877393-4448 voice plan). Conference calls with up to 10 people, voice-to-voice and video-to-video

services are free. Skype generates revenue through other offerings such as making and receiving calls to and from landline and mobile phones, as well as voicemail and call forwarding, starting at $.021 per minute. Go to and you can easily look up all the rates — in US dollars, Japanese Yen, Iceland Krona, you name it — and find out how much it would cost to call Afghanistan, Lebanon, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, etc. per minute.

between pop and classical — in fact, his music has been called “popera.” Wainwright, in his own words, is “a huge opera fanatic.” So it was no surprise that he would choose Norman, an operatic legend, as his guest for the upcoming performance at the Watermill Center’s benefit concert on August 30. Many people will recognize one name or the other, but few will be familiar with both artists. After a little Googling, pop fans might angst about being forced to listen to opera; opera fans might be perturbed about Norman’s pairing with a rock singer. But for those who know both of these artists, there’s one thought: “Wow. What a brilliant combination.” The successful blending of the two aesthetics starts with Wainwright’s output. To say he writes “big” songs is an understatement. Calling him a songwriter is like calling the “Ride of the Valkyries” a little ditty. His best works are structured like full-blown arias, with melodies that gracefully segue from quick-paced, recitativelike passages to broad, sweeping phrases. Many of Wainwright’s arrangements are “through composed,” establishing specific moods and colors from section to section. Every element is thought out — instrumentation, layering within

the arrangement, word coloring and phrasing, time signatures, tempo — through deliberate yet uncalculated technique. In his five CDs of original music the best songs are really scenes, telling a story or revealing the inner thoughts of the character. Shockingly, for someone with such advanced composition skills ,Wainwright had only a smattering of formal training — a “lot of piano lessons,” and two years at McGill University’s music school. “I wasn’t very good there, I was kind of lazy,” he said. “But in retrospect, all those hours I didn’t spend practicing scales, I spent writing songs and developing my own style.” Wainright’s training was largely experiential. Raised in a family of musicians (the son of folk singers Loudon Wainwright and Kate McGarrigle), he listened to the great opera composers, whom he cites as his major influences. “I love all of them, except Meyerbeer. I feel bad for him,” he joked. (Meyerbeer has the dubious dis-

tinction of writing the last opera to feature a male castrato.) “But my favorite is Verdi because there’s such a mystery to what makes his music so amazing. I still can’t figure it out. Even in Traviata’s stock 19th-century arrangements, there’s still mystery.” Wainwright has parlayed his passion and leanings toward the classical genre into success in the alternative pop world for a few reasons. His subject matter is topical — he writes about addiction in “Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk,” sexuality in “Gay Messiah,” the artifice of boys who feel “as pretty as princes” in “Poses.” His language is very much in the vernacular. In “Cigarettes,” he sings, “If I should buy jelly beans, have to eat them all in just one sitting.” Jelly beans. Another element that makes Wainwright’s heady output accessible is his voice, by no means a legit, pear-shaped tone. Wainwright lazily slurs from note to note, with a casual, warm yet slightly nasal pop sound that betrays the melody’s musical complexity and sophistication. (Yet he has a wide vocal range and his pitch is dead on.) But fans of the operatic vocal style can’t help but imagine Placido Domingo singing the hell out of “Poses,” or Kathleen Battle taking on the initial delicacy of “Cigarettes” and launching its grand, ascending scale passages. This is where Wainwrights’s shared billing becomes transparent. Enter Jessye Norman. While the details of the program were not disclosed as of this writing, one could only hope that the performance would involve Norman singing Wainwright. “I’m not sure what she’s going to do,” he said. “I made some requests, and she seemed enthusiastic, but if she just shows up and does a few songs, I’ll be thrilled. Whatever diva wants, diva gets.” It’s anybody’s guess what Norman might want. In addition to performing title roles in operatic chestnuts like Aida and Carmen, in the heavies by Wagner and Strauss, and more transparent music by Poulenc and Faure, Norman has reached beyond the standard repertoire, collaborating with cutting edge artists like Bill T.

Who’s Here By David Lion Rattiner Just five houses separated the childhood homes of Dennis Lynch and Billy Joel in Hicksville. The two men are 20 years apart in age and had never met until a few weeks ago when Dennis interviewed on-camera the music legend for a documentary on the Hamptons that he is producing. Like Joel, Lynch never graduated from college; in fact, he dropped out on five separate occasions and never earned one credit. Nevertheless, he’s been CEO of three separate multi-million dollar companies that he started from scratch. It’s for this reason Ernst and Young awarded him the prestigious “Entrepreneur of The Year” award in 2000, and why John Sculley, the former CEO of Apple and Pepsi, hand-picked Lynch as a business partner. To say Lynch has the ability to quickly create something from nothing would be an understatement. He’s an idea guy who understands that concepts come to life by being hands-on. Equal parts thinker and doer, Lynch prides himself on being “future ready,” a term he coined to describe himself. He calls the East End his home away from home, which he has every right to do, considering his house in East Hampton has been in his family for 100 years. He purchased the house from his grandfather with a promise of keeping it in the family. The house was old and needed updating, and Lynch decided to do the work himself while spending summers there. His new status as a local provided a new perspective of the area. On the first day of high school he met the love of his life whom he married and is still with today. He credits his love for Mary as the fuel that drove him to find success. “I played baseball in high school and later tried out for the Expos and the White Sox, but didn’t make it,” said Lynch. “I attended college but I hated school. I wasn’t making much of an impression on Mary’s father and I knew my only chance of keeping her was to start my own company.” Lynch started Techsmart, a computer asset recovery company, in 1991. “I borrowed $2,000 from my mother and starting working out of her garage. Within months I had my first warehouse and worked around the clock, often sleeping on the warehouse floor to eliminate lost travel time. Within a few years I had four warehouses and hundreds of employees.” His rags-to-riches story made headlines in The Wall Street Journal, Newsday and The New York Times. He was also profiled on CNN, CNBC and ABC News for his remarkable accomplish-

Dennis Lynch Filmmaker ments. Although Techsmart became the largest computer asset recovery business in the country, Lynch paid a price. “I was working nonstop. I gained 50 pounds. I remember being on my laptop in the delivery room when I should have been helping my wife give birth to our son. It wasn’t my finest hour. Then a few weeks later I

John Sculley to start a marketing consulting firm called Signature 21 on Park Avenue. He worked side-by-side with Sculley and as a result, got a real-life marketing education he could never have attained in college. Lynch despised the role of consultant, however, and often dreaded the work. During the tragic day of September 11, 2001, he found himself in downtown New York, running from a collapsing World Trade Center. “The next day I told John I was done consulting and vowed to never spend another moment doing something I did not love or that prevented me from being with my family. And as an athlete, I swore to regain a healthy lifestyle. Within a few months, I lost the 50 pounds.” With a lifelong love of film, in 2005 Lynch enrolled at the New York Film Academy to learn digital filmmaking. The day he graduated, he combined his new love for filmmaking with his entrepreneurial spirit and started, a digital filmmaking company. Today, is the largest network of freelance filmmakers in the world, with approximately 17,000 members. His client list includes names like ABC News, Johns Hopkins, Disney and T-FAL. Although headquarters are in Manhattan, Lynch hasn’t forgotten to love what he does. He spends most of his time running the company from his home-based offices in East Hampton and Massapequa, his main residence. “It’s a perfect setup, especially in the summer. I do my work in the morning then take my kids out to the same beach I went to as a kid, Indian Wells in Amagansett. Last year we were at Indian Wells swimming next to Alec Baldwin who was born and raised in Massapequa. I introduced myself, and we spoke about Massapequa as if we knew each other for years.” Lynch’s passion for digital filmmaking has not stopped with, as he has been working on a major documentary about the Hamptons. “The film focuses on how and why the Hamptons is the greatest place on earth. In the film so far are Christie Brinkley, Chuck Scarborough, Alec Baldwin, John Roland, Dan Rattiner, of course, Billy Joel, Mercedes Ruehl, Jay Schneiderman and others. But just as importantly I have interviewed local merchants and residents, and when I’m all done, the film will show the world what the Hamptons is really about. No film has ever done that before, in my opinion.” As the interview came to an end, Lynch got ready to go. But this time, not to a work commitment. “I’m going to spend the rest of the day with my wife and kids,” he said. “I’ll be bringing my video camera, of course.”

and motivation that usually accompanies a seasoned team, not the Nicky New Guys. The Whalers started off the season 0-6, a score that did not drag down their morale as they matched a 6-1 finish. On July 20, the Whalers had a record of 13-20, with seven games in the wings to prove themselves. They solidified a 12-1 record at Mashashimuet Park in Sag Harbor, their home base. It is here that they overcame a 1-0 loss during their second game of the divisional championship, a win that earned them a place in the championship

game in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. The Whalers stepped up to the plate at the ACBL Championship Game with the confidence that the August 12 division championship win supplied. Karl Derbacher, Alan Parks and Chris Walker, the first three batters, swung some singles that sent the team straight to the scorecard. The Whalers started off the game with a 2-0 lead. After starting pitcher Andrew Guarrasi took the mound, however, the team’s strong start fizzled out. One out followed by a slow ground ball to shortstop David Leon took its toll on the team’s position in the game, and spurred a series of small mishaps that started to add up. Mark Houck had a hard time scooping up a ground ball, and when Leon stepped in to throw it to first, he was too late to keep Kutztown Rockies player John Schultz from scoring. Andrew Guarassi walked the leadoff batter, but appeared to injure himself in the process. Then, Rockies’ player Tony Capozzi stepped up to bat and fired a ball that bounced off of Guarrasi’s glove. The Rockies runner made it home. As the Whalers tried to get it together in the dugout, the Rockies decided to give it all they had to put the promising new talent to bed. Casey Lawrence, the Rockies starting pitcher, took the mound with bullets in his hand instead of baseballs. He struck out Tom Coulombe and ended the inning. After scoring a run in the fifth inning, the Rockies took a 4-2 lead. Guarrasi retired to the

sidelines after surrendering 10 hits and four runs over his five innings, after not losing a game since July 12. John Flanagan and Pat Holloway stepped in and each pitched an inning where the Rockies did not score. After Matt Young hit a tworun single on a pitch from Matt Smith, the score changed to 6-2. Whalers catcher Chris Walker threw Young out when he tried to steal second. Smith stood like a statue as a bunt, hit by Kevin Miller, fell between him and third base. With Capozzi at the plate, Miller proceeded to steal second. In the eighth inning, the Whalers were still in the game. However, after Chris Sedon, a Rockies leading hitter and junior at Lackawanna, hit a two-run homer off Matt Smith, the end was clear. The ball flew off Sedon’s bat and landed with a thud in the cornfields beyond the baseball diamond. The Rockies, who defeated Lehigh Valley in the Wolff Division championship series, won the game with a score of 8-2. Even though the ACBL championship game did not play out according to plan, the Whalers leave a strong summer season in their wake.

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner Olympics I don’t know about you, but all I’ve wanted to do at all hours of the day and night is watch the Olympics. I don’t know what it is about the Olympics this year, but I’m completely obsessed. First of all, FIRST OF ALL, let’s just set this straight right now: those Chinese female gymnasts are not even close to 16 years old. They are, at the most, 13 years old, and it is so annoying. The American gymnasts are better, in general. I can’t tell if that one girl from China who won the gold is older than 10, but she is for damn sure not 16. She also looks crazy in general; that should count for something. America’s Shawn Johnson is the most adorable thing you have ever seen until you see her walk. She has such a positivelooking face, doesn’t she? She should be a motivational speaker. Watching gymnastics is so annoying because at the end of a routine, assuming they have a good landing, you scream out at the top of your lungs, “HOLY COW, SHE TOTALLY STUCK THAT LANDING. PERFECT SCORE! SHE’S GONNA WIN THE GOLD!” And then the judges come back with, like, a 14.8, and you just sit there all confused because the last chick took a step back on her landing and she got a 15.6. There is nothing quite like trying to write your weekly column while watching Michael Phelps and eating a bag of potato chips. I was one of those people that heard he eats 12,000 calories a day, and then figured I should start chowing down so that I could one day be an Olympian.

Just watching Michael Phelps swim slowly through the pool, even when he is not racing, is like watching a seal in an aquarium. He just kind of slides and snakes through the water, and then pops out of it perfectly and walks to his iPod like he is the man, which he is. He’s got to be the coolest athlete on the planet right now. Who would have thought that we would all be so pumped up about swimming? You just watch the outside shots of the “Water Cube,” and you’re like, “OH MAN, THIS IS GONNA BE AWESOME!” And then they race and you have a conversation with somebody explaining to them what the green line is that runs along the pool, and then you get confused at the end because you don’t remember which lane America was in and then you figure it out just at the last second and you’re like, “OH YEAH! AMERICA CAN SWIM, BABY!” Did you catch that one Jamaican chick with the mouth full of braces that won the 100-meter sprint? She was like a crazy person! So far my favorite part of the Olympics is a toss-up between Michael Phelps racing and the commentary by that weird Russian guy with the white mustache who sits next to Bob Costas and talks with him about what you just saw. You can tell Bob does everything he can to keep it together next to this lunatic. I like him, though; he tells it like it is sometimes. Especially when it came to

the Chinese using underage athletes in gymnastics. He’s got this heavy Russian accent and Bob has such a straightarrow approach to everything, and the two just work. They need to get their own weekly television show when the Olympics end, and just commentate on everything. The Russian dude wouldn’t hold back either — you can tell that he is one of those guys who knows everything about everything, and because he’s got that accent you catch yourself accidentally agreeing with him. If there is one complaint that I have this year about the coverage of the Olympics it’s the stadiums. They are just dumb. We need to stick with old-fashioned construction from the Roman empire or classic New England construction. The Bird Nest? So dumb. You look at it and just think to yourself, “Man, somebody put a lot of effort into a building that was designed from the get-go to look really, really ugly.” There was seriously a meeting somewhere in China where one guy said, “I have an idea, let’s build the Anthill for the next Olympics! A stadium in the shape of an anthill!” And then another guy was like, “No, let’s do a bee’s nest.” And then everybody sat in thought and then the richest guy in the room said, “I got it. We will build a bird’s nest.” And then a whole bunch of guys started clapping.

THE MURDER IN A POPULAR SH NIGHTSPOT By Dan Rattiner A horrible event took place at the Southampton Publick House on the night of Wednesday, August 6. It was about midnight, and it was, as usual, a very busy night, as it always is on “Ladies Night” — a tradition on Wednesdays for years and years. Just after midnight, as the band played and people danced, a young man hopped up onto a table and began dancing. This is unacceptable at the Publick House, a very reputable and safe place in Southampton that has four strong men working as bouncers to see to it that order is kept. One of these bouncers, Andrew Reister, 40, pushed through the crowd. When he got to the table, he asked the man to get down. What happened next is beyond belief. The man on the table, 25-year-old Anthony Oddone, did not respond to being told to get down, and the next thing anybody knew, he did get down, but with Reister in a choke hold. Some people stepped away as the two men lurched around on the floor, but others, after seeing that this choke hold was going on and on long after it might have otherwise been necessary, stepped in and tried to make him let go. Even Oddone’s friends tried to stop him. But he would not stop. Indeed, Reister had slipped away into unconsciousness, but still Oddone held onto him. When he finally let go, Reister dropped to the floor. Oddone then fled. There is no other way to describe it. Many witnesses saw it. All were busy attending to Reister on the floor, who would not wake up. 911 was called. An ambulance was called. The police were called. When the police arrived — the Publick House is just a few hundred yards from police headquarters — Oddone’s friends told them Oddone did not have his car there and would be trying to find other ways of getting home. The police called taxi companies and found that, indeed, Oddone was in a taxi, on his way to his home, which is in Farmingville. At 1 a.m., a police car pulled the cab over and had Oddone arrested. Back at the Publick House, the paramedics put the unconscious Reister on a gurney and wheeled him out to an ambulance. At Stony Brook Hospital, where he was quickly taken, he was found to be near death, and put on life support. By the next morning, he was gone. At 11:08 a.m. on Saturday, with his wife at his side at the hospital, he was taken off life support. Reister, according to the accounts of almost everybody who knew him, was about the nicest guy you’d ever meet. He grew up on North Sea Road, went to school in Southampton then Suffolk County Community College, and married a girl he met when coming late to a class and finding the only available seat left was next to her. Three years later, the two were wed and some years later, began a family. They had two young children. Reister loved it all. He coached a Little League team and recently celebrated his 20th wedding anniversary. He worked as a corrections officer at the Riverhead County Jail, where he headed up several groups that helped raise money for families of corrections officers in need. He worked a second job at the Publick House as a bouncer, and played golf. Friends say he could hit a ball 280 yards. He had many

friends and was a gentle, giving man — and a great asset to this town. Since the incident, many corrections officers from Riverhead have comforted Stacy Reister, who has said if they had not been there for her she didn’t know how she would have gotten through this hard time. “He was a wonderful husband and father and loved his kids and me,” she told a reporter. Oddone, who normally would have been taken to Riverhead jail to Andrew Reister await charges, was instead taken to Rikers Island in New York City for his own safety, given all the friends that Reister had

at the Riverhead facility. His lawyer says that Oddone is pleading not guilty because what he did was in response to being attacked by Reister, and that he was just defending himself. According to those who were present at the assault, Oddone did not appear to be impaired when this altercation took place. Bartenders there say he did not have too much to drink. An early charge against Oddone was first-degree assault. He will likely be further charged with second-degree murder, and is current(continued on page 45)

Southampton Forges Ahead with CPF Purchases By T.J. Clemente The Town of Southampton is not standing still, even in these difficult times. Despite a significant drop in Community Preservation Funds from an all-time high in 2007 of over $53.53 million, to around $21.8 million to date in 2008, Southampton CPF purchases under Mary Wilson’s watchful eye are still very active. In fact, the town recently used just less than $4 million of CPF funds to purchase 40 acres from James F. Baird and John F. Baird. The property is located on Red Creek Road and Old Squires Road, and designated

in the Paumanok Path Trail area of the town. This action was lauded by many in the immediate area However, in Quiogue, where residents of Southampton Village are requesting Southampton Town CPF money to acquire the 49 acres that include the Oakland Farms subdivision, the story’s not quite the same. The Oakland Farms subdivision proposal received preliminary approval from the Town Planning Board more than two years ago. Once that approval was obtained, there was not much that the village could do to stop the


development. However, Wilson is on record as saying that until it’s developed, the land can always be purchased. She reportedly explained that town officials had “looked into buying the property” from 2003 until 2006. “We could still buy it,” she said. Westhampton Beach Village Attorney Bo Bishop added, “The town should preserve this property, but it’s not in the village, so we don’t have a lot of control over it.” The current development plan calls for a proposed 33-lot subdivision that could be built just outside the village, in Quiogue. Concerned citizens worry that traffic would become intolerable and that water issues will negatively impact the community. One resident, who lives near the proposed subdivision on Adam Lane, said that the construction of 33 new homes in that area will hurt the quality of water in Aspatuck Creek and Quantuck Bay. Other residents also believe the town is not sensitive enough to this issue. Given the struggling housing market, revisiting the issue of Southampton Town acquiring the property with CPF money might seem like a good idea for all involved — including the developer. However, many developers have long-term vision, and when the financing is in place, developing is what they do. They have long histories of buying cement, cinderblocks, lumber and so forth, and have built relationships with their suppliers. They almost feel an obligation to continue building to support the businesses that helped them become successful. Although they can make a profit selling to the CPF with little risk, it is in their spirit to take risks to make even more profits — in this case, millions of dollars. The concerns of neighbors are almost always centered around how changes will affect their pocketbooks, meaning the value of their homes. If the land comes under the control of the CPF it might be assumed the property values of the nearby homes will stabilize, if not increase. Mark Raynor, a former village trustee, said, “We’re hoping that the town pursues and purchases it and uses it as open space.” Perhaps the idea is to recreate the strategy of the Baird property, which runs through the Paumanok Path, connecting some 10,000 acres of wonderful open space. Some believe that the Paumanok Path hiking trail project is of regional importance because it will eventually extend 125 miles from Rocky Point to Montauk Point. The dwindling Community Preservation Fund is being used wisely, and the concerned opposition to the Oakland Farms subdivision would like to see Wilson and the Southampton Town CPF strike again. For now the fate of the 33 Oakland Farms acres is hanging in the balance. Will it be 33 new homes built on one acre each, or will the property remain open space? As Westhampton Beach Village Attorney Bo Bishop said, “It’s sensitive land.”

Cavett gains the admiration of many future generations of people who may never have seen him on TV, but will know him for preserving perhaps the most beautiful coastline on the whole East Coast. The whole situation is a win-win deal for Cavett, the town and the future.

ensure that properties in the area will remain very private, very exclusive and very valuable. (The Warhol estate went for somewhere between $30-40 million, give or take a few dollars.) These purchases also ensure that the pristine shoreline will never be built up like Big Sur in California, with gaudy new homes. To many who love Montauk the way it is, this is great news. Scott Wilson, the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land acquisition director, reportedly claimed that no parking lots will be constructed on the lands. He also expressed relief that the property, which was on the private market for as much as $30 million, was secured by the town. Cavett accepted the town offer for substantially less money, but now wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any neighbors building homes near his for the rest of his life. A town official unofficially said a few years back that Cavett reportedly was ready to donate the property to the town for nothing, but something went awry in the negotiations. Cavett, long active in Montauk preservation, played a role with Paul Simon, Billy Joel and others to help save the Montauk Lighthouse. He is often

He has a lot of amazing friends and one of those is Jessye Norman. When I got ready to do the benefit I politely requested that I work with her.” Wainwright’s working with Norman will also inform his current project: He has been commissioned by Metropolitan Opera general manager Peter Gelb to write his first opera, which he calls Prima Donna. “It’s about an opera singer, a prima donna,” he said. “It takes place in France, sounds very French — and I’m writing the libretto in French with a friend.” While he couldn’t reveal much more about it, he said it will premiere not at the Met, but elsewhere, “very very soon.” The concert at the Watermill Center may be a small preview of what’s to come, as alternative pop fans are lured into the gilded halls of the opera house.

Five-year-old Margaret Sheerin of North Salem, NY was struck and killed by a passing car on the Napeague stretch in Amagansett Sunday afternoon. The victim and her younger sister were seated outside the home when their father went inside briefly before taking the girls to the beach. Reportedly, he heard the wagon wheels rolling. Margaret Sheerin had gotten into a Radio Flyer wagon in her driveway at 731 Montauk Highway when the wagon rolled down the slightly steep, approximately 75-foot-long slope and entered oncoming traffic, according to police reports. Sheerin was taken by ambulance to Southampton Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Sheerin collided with a 2002 Saab driven by Erika Halweil, 31, of Sag Harbor, who was heading east in the Beach Hampton area. Reportedly, she tried to avoid the collision and ran off the road into a guardrail, before the car and the wagon collided. Halweil was also taken to Southampton Hospital by ambulance, and treated for minor injuries. No charges have been filed. According to neighbors and a town official, that stretch, where trees obstruct drivers’ views and the road has slight curves and hills, has been a site of a dozen accidents each year. East Hampton Town Police have requested that witnesses call the department at 631-537-7575.

ly being held on $500,000 bail. Oddone, from Farmingville, was attending St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue, where he was a member of that school’s golf team. In addition to being a student, he worked in the summer fulltime as a caddy at The Bridge. He has never been in trouble before. Apparently, he has a girlfriend, and lives with her and her parents. A man named Steve Brown, who identified himself as the father of Oddone’s girlfriend, sent this e-mail to a reporter: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Reister family. This incident has been a terrible tragedy. For the time that we have known Anthony, he has always been a hard worker, and was putting himself through college.” A Newsday reporter interviewed a member of the St. Joseph’s College golf team. Adam Coelho, 19, said, “He’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met,” he said. “As one of the older members of the team, he kept a watchful eye on all us younger players. If I was having a bad day, he would say ‘nothing is as bad as it seems.’” The Publick House has cancelled “Ladies Nights” until further notice. Reister was buried at Good Ground Cemetery in Hampton Bays on Thursday, August 14.

opened my mouth. What came out was “strike two.” Well, balls and strikes are not a big deal, and when an umpire makes a call you’re supposed to stick to it. “Two and two,” I said softly. “What was that?” Vila asked with his bat on his shoulder. “He said ‘strike,’” Sopiak shouted to him. “That’s ridiculous,” Vlla said. “Okay,” I said. “Three and one.” Sopiak, who had the ball and was getting ready for the next pitch, looked at me in astonishment. Then he said, “It really was a ball.” “I know,” I said, suppressing a giggle. Boxing sportscaster Bert Sugar, assisted by Juliette Papa, called the game over a PA system from a table behind the backstop, but sometimes I wondered if he was looking at the same game I was. In one particular inning, the Artists got two men on base with nobody out, and the next batter up hit a fly ball to right, which was caught. “Bases loaded, nobody out,” Sugar said. “One out,” I said, raising one finger in the air. “This is going to be tough on the Writers,” Sugar said. “Their backs are to the wall. Bases loaded. Nobody out.” “Two on, one out,” I shouted. “I don’t see how Zuckerman is going to get out of this inning without letting at least one run in,” Sugar said.

Chevy Chase, Lori Singer, Alec Baldwin

“One out,” I shouted again. “Bases loaded,” said Sugar. The end of the game could not have been more dramatic. The Artists were just three outs away from victory when the Writers came up for the top of the ninth inning. Sopiak, still pitching beautifully, got the first two out. But then he could not get the third. Pretty soon, the bases were loaded, and who strode to the plate but Bill Weise, another home run hitter who, several years ago, had been Player of the Game. The count went to three and two. And with that, Sopiak let loose one of his off-speed pitches, which Weise swung at with full force. It went

straight up, 15 feet into the air. The catcher for the Artists, Tom Clohessy, went to catch it for the final out. Weise did not seem to know where the ball had gone. He just stood there a moment, as Clohessy came up alongside him on the first-base side, in fair territory, under the ball, at which point Weise turned to run toward first, which got him running right into Clohessy. The ball popped out of Clohessy’s mitt. I knew instantly how I had to call it. I didn’t want to. It would be a terrible end to this game. “Out,” I called, running toward home plate. A base runner cannot interfere in a baseline with a fielder going for the ball. “Three outs, game over.” The entire bench of Writers erupted and ran onto the field screaming at me. The Artists did the same. And there they all were, standing around, yelling at me at the same time, the Artists saying “game over,” the Writers shouting “foul ball.” “He hit him, it’s over,” I said. “He never got out of the batter’s box,” sportswriter Mike Lupica shouted. “He can just stand there.” But he hadn’t just stood there. “I have to call what happened,” I said. “I was looking right at it.” Clohessy, the catcher, who should have been glad that though he dropped the ball the game (continued on the next page)

was over, took a very surprising position. He’s a big man, about 6’4”, and he has a big booming voice. “We cannot win the game this way,” he shouted at me. “Do it over. We want to win the game fair and square.” Hope was now on the scene. And he agreed with the assessment. “The rule book is the rule book. He was out. But I agree. It can’t end this way.” “Okay,” I said. “It doesn’t count. For the sake of the game, a foul ball.” Everybody seemed amazed at this turn of events. And so the talking stopped. And so we went back to where we were before this play. I don’t think we have ever before done this. It was quite amazing. And now it was Sopiak, who has been playing softball in one league or another all his life. And at the plate was Richard Wiese, wildlife adventurer, and the same former President of the Explorers Club, who is a big slugger. The count was still three and two. Sopiak pitched the next ball high, which would have been ball four driving in a run, but Wiese went for it. And it was a long drive deep out to right field. The right fielder, Stu Steppin, drifted back and back and, right up against the wall, caught it for the third and final out. Artists 4, Writers 2. As the game was over, the crowd drifted away, having watched one of the best-played and most exciting games in years. A half-hour later, in the outdoor courtyard at the Lodge Restaurant on

Race Lane, the Artists and Writers, still in uniform, sweaty and covered with dust, drank ice cold beers and discussed the game. Soon, Hope arrived. He announced that the Player of the Game Award would again go to Joe Sopiak. And he announced that over $90,000 was raised for three charities: the Phoenix House, East Hampton Child Care and East End Hospice. This was a record amount. “Next year, $100,000,” he said. “And I believe that will happen.” The game was dedicated to the memory of actor Roy Scheider, who for more than a decade had been the pitcher for the Artists. It was also dedicated to the 11 servicemen from our East End community who lost their lives in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan during the last five years. Many family members of those who had made this sacrifice were at this game and stood on the mound silently to be introduced to the crowd by Congressman Bishop. A moment of silence for the fallen was then held. And then Morgan Sturges was introduced by Master of Ceremonies Juliette Papa of 1010 WINS, and she sang the “Star-Spangled Banner” as we stood there, holding our hats over our hearts. A good deal of media was at the game, including Newsday, Plum TV, LTV and, of course, Hampton Style and Dan’s Papers. Sponsors of this event were HBO, Mort Zuckerman, Hollander Design, Grumbacher Paints, Carlisle Collection, Shana Alexander Foundation, 1010 WINS, Snapple, Walter Bernard Design, Madison Copy, Spanierman Gallery, Fred and Lora Drasner, Ronnette Riley

are calling for McGintee’s immediate resignation, going as far as circulating petitions in front of the town post office. With, as Ryan called it, “the most public budget process in all of Long Island about to start and to be concluded with three televised public sessions,” a serious amount of posturing will no doubt take place. How McGintee weathers the storm and captains the ship will determine his political future and his legacy. Amazingly enough, according to Ryan the town has no plans to discontinue infrastructure programs already started, including the completion of the historical town hall space, which Ryan said was, “just the interiors and the glass atrium away from

completion.” However the town’s internal health insurance structure is going to be revisited because, as it stands now, its cost cannot be controlled nor contained. Under the mantra that “East Hampton is no longer a small town,” bold steps are going to be taken to put in new systems to run the town. The supervisor is hedging his bets that if these new systems put a new handle on managing town affairs, at the end of the day his leadership under intense and sometimes unfair criticism will not deter him from steering the ship through this political and financial storm. One thing most have to admit: McGintee isn’t a quitter or a whiner. In past meetings,



In the off-season the a/c and heating business slows down to the point where our installers are sitting around without much work. Many companies lay people off in these slow times and hope to replace their skilled workers when business picks up. This is not a good business practice and is unfair to the employees and their families. Other Dealers have refused to compromise and let the public know this, but at Flanders’s we value our skilled workers greatly and would rather keep them busy, even if it means making little or no money. To do this, I’m going to slash the price of our first rate A/C and Heating Systems. Here’s my offer: Purchase a Premier Central Heating & Air-Conditioning System (furnace and a/c) and I’ll Give you a high efficient furnace at 1/2 the normal price. Plus take one year to pay for the system W.A.C (with approved credit) If you need only an A/C or Furnace, I’ll still give you a discount off the cost of the equipment plus guarantee at least 25% energy savings or I’ll pay you double the difference of any unrealized savings during the firs year. You see, September through November is a slower time of the year for my company. With Back to school expenses and last minute summer vacations coupled with the fact that summer is over & winter isn’t started yet, folks are putting off buying A/C till next year. It’s also not cold enough for the heating season to start or do furnace replacements. So by helping us now we’ll pass big savings on to help you, a true win, win.

With your new Air-Conditioner and/or Furnace, we will go the extra mile to give you up to 10 years Parts and Labor warranty against any future repair bills. That’s a full decade!!! Free for 1 Year; As I stated earlier you’ll not have to pay for this system for up to a year with our 360 day No Payment and No Interest. You see while most folks are waiting till next year to purchase a/c you’ll get to enjoy a/c though the remaining of the hot times in comfort and lock in 2007 pricing, all while not having to pay anything till 2008. Not to mention getting a more efficient furnace before winter gets here, you’ll start saving real energy dollars right away. Here’s my offer: Summary: • Purchase a Premier A/C system and get a hi-efficient furnace at 1/2 price. • Guarantee 25% energy savings • Don’t pay till Summer 2007 • Repair free Warranty for up to 10 Years • The best in quality and efficiency. • 1 Yr. No Interest No Payment.

Most anyone in business has their busy and slow times. The heating and air-conditioning industry is no different, and fluctuates dramatically with season and weather. Like now the fall weather is too mild for either A/C or heating. This is literally how it works. When we get to peak hot or cold seasons two things happen 1) our sales and service staff have more work than we can handle. 2) The demand is so high; there is no reason to discount the price.

when confronted with overt contempt as opponents tried to make him look inept, aloof and out of control, McGintee has stayed the course. Ryan is highly focused on, if not obsessed with, the fees the town charges for weddings, beach stickers and housing permits. She believes they are too low, and in some instances — like beach parties and weddings — the low fees cause the town to lose money due to police overtime to supervise traffic and safety for the events. She puts fees revenue at around $1 million out of an approximate $57 million budget. She believes the highly popular and successful seniors programs cost money and must be funded. So, as the forecasted budget numbers start to trickle in, aiming at the September 30 Dday announcement, the supervisor plans on tipping off the board as soon as possible so that a coherent plan can be drawn up and the town can make the turn on grappling with the national downturn in the economy and its effect on revenues available to towns, counties, states and the federal government. So as the clock ticks, the town prepares to face down its worst financial crisis, although Ryan said, “The town hasn’t even begun to tap its financial resources. That’s what Moody’s said.” McGintee must show his mettle in the upcoming month. He has an opportunity to resurrect a political career many believe is already over.

opened a public charter school for at-risk kids in Las Vegas, and now he’s on a mission to help kids nationwide. His first stop was East Hampton. This past Saturday, Agassi and his wife, Steffi Graf, hosted the 1st annual “A Night in the Hamptons” to benefit the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation, at the Ross School in East Hampton. Agassi admitted it was his first time out East and that he’d turned the trip into a family vacation with Steffi, daughter Jaz Elle and son Jaden Gil. “I have never been out to the Hamptons,” he said. “We have been here for about five days and the kids are having a blast. We’ve been roaming around the town, getting lunch, getting ice cream with the kids, and just sort of taking in the lifestyle of it.” Agassi clearly was-

Stephen Grossman of Sag Harbor, to appear on her behalf. Grossman said he had previously been in discussion with East Hampton Village, which oversees the gathering permits, and the District Attorney’s office, which oversees the alcohol permits needed for the state. “They agreed that we could lower the criminal charge from a misdemeanor to a violation if we pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, which we did,” explained Grossman. “And once we did that, the village would also dismiss their charge.” Judge Cathy Cahill fined the corporation, Vered Gallery, Inc., $200. Grossman said he felt this was fair. But Vered had a different reaction. “They had to do something to save their necks, but they should have dismissed the whole thing, because it was embarrassing that no one had contacted the Chamber of Commerce to tell this to the merchants,” she said, adding that, in more than 30 years that she had been operating her gallery in its present location, no one had ever before enforced these liquor laws. “The police should have handled this in a more civilized manner. After all the years I’ve been doing business as a law-abiding citizen, you don’t take me away in handcuffs,” she said. “I deserve the courtesy, just like all the other business owners, to be told that they are now enforcing these laws. If it was the law, then where were the police for the past 30 years?” Vered said after her incident on May 24, she has experienced an amazing show of support. “I never knew I had so many supporters, but

hundreds of people have been calling and coming into my gallery to ask if I need names on a petition or money to fight this,” she said. When she heard about the fine, Vered’s partner, Janet Lehr, said, “$200? I think they owe us millions! You can never calculate the negative effect this has had on our business.” She added, “There’s something illogical in a NYS law which has lain dormant for 30 years, being enforced only in one village.” When asked if they have obtained permits for other openings since this incident, Vered retorted, “Getting the permit still takes a while. We haven’t had any public opening where we served alcohol, just a few private parties with a select group of people. In other towns, like Southampton, they don’t bother the galleries or businesses that have openings. It’s only in East Hampton.” But East Hampton Village Administrator Larry Cantwell said, “The police were verbally advising people about the state liquor laws last year. And in the village, any gathering over 50 people requires a mass assemblage permit. We’ve issued 300-400 of these gather-

ing permits this summer since this incident took place, and we’ve included in every application requested by a commercial business, information advising them to be aware that they will need an alcohol permit as well.” Cantwell said the village has been cognizant of informing as many businesses as possible since this incident. Terry Wallace, owner of the Wallace Gallery in East Hampton, said, “People aren’t coming because of the alcohol, they’re coming because of the art.” He said he has gotten a gathering permit for his next opening on August 23, but that he needs his landlord’s signature to obtain an alcohol permit, which hasn’t yet happened. Sag Harbor artist Carolyn Beegan said, “I’ve been going to openings for many years, and people don’t go there to get drunk — it’s a social event, and doesn’t do anyone any harm. I don’t see a problem in my village. I think it’s over-regulated out here.” Recently in Sag Harbor, trustee Tiffany Scarlato presented a first draft of a special events permit, which would apply to gathering of more than 75 people in private homes. •

Huge Groundswell of Interest in Montauk Monster

tions, it earned a spot on comedy shows, including “The Colbert Report,” with the host joking that “John McCain has washed up on the shore of Montauk.” And just recently, eBay sellers hoping to earn a quick buck joined in. Multiple items have been sold on the website, including a framed oil painting of the beast for $51 that had earned four bids,

as well as a “custom-made prop” created from a sculpture and cast from latex. The prop is selling for $32 and, at last check, had five bids. FOX News reported a story about a man who auctioned off a piece of toast with an impression of the Montauk Monster. The breakfast item sold for $2.75 after 14 bids, and now, the toaster oven that produced the monster toast is also for sale on eBay. An interested bidder asked if there were any crumbs left from the toast, to which the seller responded, “Actually, I haven’t cleaned out the crumb tray in four years. I would guess there are definitely Montauk Monster toast crumbs present…” The discovery of this toothy beast has made its way around the world, which begs one question: besides the fact that this critter is atrociously hideous, why has it created such uproar in the media? According to Gawker, one possibility is that the Hamptons/Montauk area is famous for its wealth, and the fact that a heinous creature has washed up on our “precious, opal-sanded shores,” is somehow pleasing to the masses.

By Evie Salomon It was only last month that Montauk was known the world over as a paradise destination, but recently, thanks to national coverage by the likes of FOX News, USA Today and CNN, the small town has achieved fame not just for its luxurious beaches, but for what’s washed up onshore: the Montauk Monster. Speculation arose immediately from members of the community, as well as Internet surfers — coverage on, one of New York’s most popular media gossip blogs, has generated more than 11 billion hits in the last few weeks. While some deemed it the creature of Satan, others called it a hairless pitbull or a turtle without a shell. From a slightly more logical standpoint, others proposed that it is simply an escaped experiment from the government’s animal-disease research facility on Plum Island. Not a completely bogus idea, as the facility is just offshore from Montauk. Suspicious nonbelievers say that it is more likely a sick marketing device for the “X Files” movie, or the kid’s TV show, “Crytids are Real.” What washed up on shore at Ditch Plains beach early in the morning of July 12 is still a mystery. However, one thing is for sure: nobody can stop talking about it. On, the creature made its way up to the number one story spot. Was it more important than CNN’s second headline, “Killer Carried Victim’s Head?” Apparently, yes. FOX News was one of the first television channels to cover the story. Dan Rattiner was even contacted for an interview. An overwhelming number of e-mails piled in regarding the creature, and FOX went so far as to bring in Jeff Corwin, “Animal Planet” wildlife expert, for a broadcasted interview. Corwin called this investigation a hoax, claiming that the creature is a perfect example of a decomposing carnivore. Corwin said that what looks like a beak is actually canine teeth, and based on the scruff around the creature’s wrists and neck, it is definitely not a bird, and most certainly not a reptile. Even with all the other theories swarming about, Corwin said it is nothing more than an incredibly rare raccoon. Facebook, a social networking site popular among high school and college students, has also spread the word. Currently there are 198 groups with more than 1,000 members discussing the possible identity of the Montauk Monster. The groups are filled with links to the splurge of Internet articles. USA Today and the Chicago Tribune have also covered the story with a watchful eye, and over 3,000 miles away, the story has even reached the Daily Telegraph in the UK. It’s crazy to think that what started out as a tiny local piece has turned into a global headline taking over cyberspace. When “Montauk Monster” is entered into the Google search key, about 1.5 million hits pop up, with the number increasing by the second. It’s no surprise that for a while, the Montauk Monster was number one on Google trends. While this local phenomenon is making its way into major publications and multiple news sta-

Newtown Lane in town. All of them said the Stockels had lived there, not as locals but as summerpeople, for at least the last 15 years, that they knew them as acquaintances, and that was all. They were polite and friendly and neighborly. And yes, the couple got along fine as far as they could see. None of them had ever seen or heard an argument. Trunzo said that when he last saw Mr. Stockel a few days ago, Stockel asked how he was after the fire. Fierro said he saw Stockel less than a week ago while at a bank in town. He seemed quite cheerful. What was learned on Monday afternoon was that this house, filled with expensive furnishings and fine china, was just one of three homes that the Stockels own. Their main house is in Verona, New Jersey, and they also have a house in Florida. Mr. Stockel made his money in the 1990s by co-founding a company in Philadelphia called CashFlex. What it did, and still does, is process incoming checks for large retail operations that sell things through the mail. It cashes the checks and then deposits them in the appropriate accounts and gives the approval that the merchandise can be sent. Mr. Stockel and his co-founder saw this opportunity when they noticed large firms in this business farming this work out to smaller firms. CashFlex was founded with over $100 million in backing. The Stockels have two sons, now grown. They’re both reportedly in their father’s business.

AS WE GO TO PRESS By noon on Tuesday, the police had begun to conclude that Mr. Stockel killed his wife and then turned the gun on himself for reasons they believe they now know. They also believe it was Mr. Stockel who made the phone call. “We arrived only minutes after the 911 call came through,” Det. Lt. Jack Fitzpatrick, commander of the Suffolk Homicide Squad told me Tuesday afternoon. “The house was locked from the inside. There was no forcible entry. The condition of the house suggested it was just the two of them. And we also have now found some items which we cannot reveal until we talk with the family to get their approval, which clearly suggest that this was a murder-suicide. In fact, we are now quite confident this is the case.” •

ber of international long distance calls from the United States has skyrocketed from only about 200 million a year to more than 6.2 billion per year over the past 20 years. Today, if you wanted to call France using a basic calling plan, it would cost you $1.77-$2.77 per minute. If you and your amie both had Skype the call would be free, and if only one of you had Skype, it would cost you $.024 per minute. Evie Salomon of Chicago, an intern here at Dan’s Papers, started using Skype when she went to England to study Communications at Cambridge University. Instead of getting a PicCell phone (for making calls globally), her brother Mark told her about Skype, which ultimately saved her and the Salomon family a lot of money. “As long as the other person is online, you can talk to them for as long as you want. The picture quality is great,” she said “I Skyped everyday, a couple of times a day.” Alison Caporimo of Brooklyn, who is also an intern at Dan’s Papers, explained, “It’s the best way to maintain a long-distance relationship. When you’re separated from someone you still miss out on a lot of things that a phone conversation can’t offer. Skype presents ‘real-time life’ that Facebook, MySpace and AIM can’t. The only thing that’s missing is a personal touch. Maybe that’s next.” My Skype adventures didn’t start with a trip

abroad — they started with broken brakes. On my way to work, my brake light came on and the pressure normally felt between foot and pedal was gone. Driving around with brake problems isn’t recommended, so I took my car to Corrigan’s Auto in Bridgehampton. Since I live in Amagansett, I was stuck trying to hitchhike or find rides to work. It then dawned on me that not only could I help save the world — or perhaps a polar bear or two — from global warming by not driving and emitting carbon all week, but also with the magic of technology, I could still “be at work.” I called Salomon and asked her to power on her Skype. Both of us have laptops with built-in cameras, and within seconds, I was presenting information at the

editorial meeting — from my house. I think this could be extremely popular here in the Hamptons — there could be an entire community of people living and working in a place called “SkypeHampton.” Every summer, Skypers could broadcast high over everyone’s heads via little, itty-bitty particles of energy from Montauk to Manhattan without setting a tire on Route 27. In any case, the entire editorial department was very pleased about how successful and easy Skype was to use. Susan Galardi, managing editor of Dan’s Papers, said, “It reminded me of the last scene of Salome, when the hedonistic princess sings a lengthy aria to John the Baptist, who at that point has been reduced to a head on a silver platter. But having Vicky on Skype went beyond that — she was a talking head on a silver MacBook. And unlike John the Baptist, she could actually talk back. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to enjoy Strauss’ exquisite music. Maybe next time we’ll play a CD.” Dan Rattiner, founder of Dan’s Papers, plans to start using it all the time from wherever he is — Manhattan, Canada, Tahiti or Montauk. The last thing Rattiner said to me before signing off after our editorial meeting was, “You know, Victoria, you shouldn’t have gone to the bathroom in front of all of us. We can see you.” I’ll have to remember that for next time.

BLACK STICKY GOO MAY BE OIL? Several workmen, returning to their homes in Shirley after a dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work digging the subway tunnel, now under Long Island Sound on its way to Foxwoods in Connecticut, say that the black liquid seeping into the tunnel is oil. They held a press conference on Saturday with what they say was a jar of oil that they say they smuggled out from the dig. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seeping in from several places,â&#x20AC;? one of the men said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hampton Subway crew leaders have pumps going. But we think it is a dangerous situation.â&#x20AC;? A spokesperson for Hampton Subway, Arlene Pressman, said that the jar of gasoline held up at the press conference could have come from any gas station in the area. She scoffed at the idea that the tunnel being dug had hit oil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever it is, it is a small amount not even worth discussing,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are pressing on.

almost in sight,” she said, referring to the fact that the resort sticks up 12 stories above the forest. Everyone laughed at that. HORSE SHOW STEEDS COMING BY SUBWAY The Hampton Classic will be transporting more than 400 horses to the show by subway between midnight and five a.m. on Thursday. We expect the rocking motion of the train will relax them as they sleep on the ride from Westhampton Beach to Bridgehampton at a very stately nine miles an hour, so surely they will be ready for the very stiff competition that begins later that morning. Subway riders should be aware that trains following the horse train will be going only nine miles an hour from 4 - 8 a.m., and that all the windows will be closed. After that, the Westhampton line will be closed for cleanup for one hour. BELLMORE LAB BURNS TO THE GROUND The Bellmore Lab in Westbury, where samples of the black ooze that has been seeping into the new tunnel to Connecticut had been taken for analysis, has burned to the ground. It was a troublesome fire. The Westbury Fire Department would get the fire under control, but then it would flare up again. “It seemed like somebody was pouring gasoline on it while we were putting it out,” Fire Chief Patterson said. “It’s under control now, but it’s a total loss.” COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S WEEKLY MESSAGE I’d like to comment, while vacationing here in Hawaii, about the claims that the black liquid they are finding in the tunnel we are digging under Long Island Sound is possibly oil. Nothing could be further from the truth. Some of the workmen who have encountered it say it smells more like molasses than anything else. In any case, the delays caused by this stuff seeping in are minimal. So far, in the last 12 days, they are just six days behind schedule. And as fast as the stuff seeps into the tunnels, the faster we pump it back out into the open sea, where it simply floats away to points unknown. Not our problem. •

Over The Barrel... with Lenn Thompson

Storms On The Vineyard If wine is truly made in the vineyard — and any quality-focused winemaker will tell you that it is — Long Island wine is being made in one messy kitchen this year by one crazy chef, Mother Nature. In many ways, Long Island is the perfect place to grow classy, world-class wines…… but there are challenges too. Hungry migratory birds and resident deer can decimate crops in short order. The same bodies of water that delay the first winter frosts also mean high humidity levels that can bring disease and rot. The threat of a hurricane that roams more further north than usual is a nightmare scenario for any East End vineyard manager. A recent burst of strong storms — the ones that have brought tornados and bursts of hail to the Island — are yet another challenge for local wineries. For many, the hail is a first. Something they’ve never had to deal with before. Ben Sisson, vineyard manager at McCall Vineyard in Cutchogue said in an email “I do not recall a year with so many thunderstorms of such intensity since I’ve been growing grapes.” Rich Pisacano, co-owner of Roanoke Vineyards and another industry veteran agrees, telling me that the hail was a “first experience for us.” Luckily, the damage to his Riverhead vineyard wasn’t wide spread.

“There was very little foliar damage, but strangely (we have) some damaged berries that are already drying on the vine and are falling off,” he said. That means a smaller crop, but it shouldn’t affect quality. Alice Wise, who maintains a research vineyard at Cornell’s Cooperative Extension in Riverhead, had a similar experience in her vineyard after three minutes of pea-size hail. “It didn’t seem to affect the canopy at all. It did cause a little slice on an occasional exposed berry. It was not as bad as I expected not having experienced hail before. The danger of course is that any wound can invite in rot organisms such as Botrytis. We’re all watching that closely.” It could have been much worse. According to Adam Suprenant, winemaker at Osprey’s Dominion Winery, hail can lead to “total shredding of the vine canopy, especially leaves. Breakage of shoots as well as bruising of the fruit if it is soft. Severe damage may affect crop level the following year.” For now, it seems as though Long Island grape grow-

ers have literally weathered the storms, but the season isn’t over yet. Comparing the growing season to baseball, Richard OlsenHarbich from Raphael said “We have a slight lead right now in the 7th inning and hope our bullpen can close the door and get the save. But you have to get the last 3 outs to finish the game, so we’ll see.” Hopefully Long Island’s viticultural bullpen is better than that of his beloved Mets. Still, growers and winemakers are optimistic — but cautiously so. With 10 weeks or so left before harvest, a lot can happen. In an ideal world, Sisson says that “All the birds to fly to another state, carrying the deer, raccoons and groundhogs with them. And the days are bright and sunny with temperatures in the mid-80s with low humidity.” Pisacano, who has been growing grapes on Long Island since high school, speaks more about the weather and less on the local fauna, wishing for “great sun, warm days, cool nights and soft dry winds. We’re not asking for much.”

Horsing Around On The North Fork Horseback Riding On The North Fork Is Picking Up Some Serious Steam By Phyllis Lombardi Hi-Yo, Southold! Well, almost. Our horses are not quite fiery and they travel a bit less than the speed of light. But there’s usually a cloud of dust and one can imagine a hearty Hi-Yo, Silver. The North Fork’s going equestrian. Now my riding experiences are limited – to one horse named Molly and to a couple of youthful working-summers in the Adirondacks. But I read about horses. I guess my favorite horse book is Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand. And I confess to an occasional day at Saratoga racetrack. I’ve a friend who lives in that town and if my visits are timed for August, who can blame me? So why all this talk of horses? Because the 33rd Annual Hampton Classic Horse Show opens August 24 in Bridgehampton. I’ve never been to a horse show but I bet the Hampton Classic is pretty darned impressive. We have a horse show or two on the North Fork, though obviously with less history and scope. For now. But let the South Fork know the North Fork’s working at it, starting with our youngsters. We’re

those who love and/or ride them. There are about 25 horses on site and they come from all over. For example, there’s Somerset from Vermont and Miss Covington from Georgia. The horse I watched for more than an hour on this summer day was a sixyear-old beauty named October Morning. Atop October Morning was 19-year old Morgan Manley. Morgan and her family have summered in Peconic for decades. Indeed, Morgan began riding lessons at Hidden Lake when she was just five years old. Morgan looked picture-perfect now as she and October Morning practiced jumping in the outdoor arena. Really, a picture it was. For a backdrop, woods rolling to water, an old barn on one side, a field of almost-ripe corn on the other. Morgan’s mom stood with me (we cheated a bit, leaning on a fence) and we talked some about Morgan. She just completed her freshman year at Brandeis University in Massachusetts. Yes, her grades were good and yes, she’s on the school’s equestrian team. Mom was proud, as she should

be,and so was Jackie, who remembers teaching Morgan those many years ago. In the arena instructing Morgan in multiple jumping was Cara Campbell of Orient. Cara’s been teaching at Hidden Lake for several years and loves her job. She’s happy seeing “the horses come along as well as the students.” Something else pleases Cara, too. She keeps her own horse, Cody, at Hidden Lake and rides every chance she gets. Lots of other stuff goes on at Hidden Lake. There’s a Pony Club for hands-on experience in riding and grooming. And every April there are Hunter Trials. Affiliated with Smithtown Hunt, Jackie and Hidden Lake host the event. Jackie wants me to tell you it’s a scenting hunt only – no animals are chased. So, South Fork, we’re pretty classic here on the North Fork. That’s because we’ve got great horses and great people like Morgan, Cara and Jackie. As Cara says about Jackie, “She may stand just five feet, but she’s eight feet tall in the saddle.” And from Morgan? “Thank you, Ms. Jackie.”

If it’s proof you want, join me and we’ll trot on over to Hidden Lake Farm Riding School on North Road in Southold. Huge tree branches bend low over the entrance, as if bowing in welcome. And there in the outdoor arena (there’s an indoor arena, too) is Jackie Bittner, owner of Hidden Lake. Jackie’s waving another welcome, so let’s go talk with her. When Jackie acquired the property in 1967, it was a 98-acre potato farm. She established the riding school and then, just a few years ago, Jackie turned over 50 of those beautiful acres, including the “hidden” lake, to Southold Town. A nature preserve is in the works – one with walking trails to Long Island Sound. A gift to you, to me. The remaining acres are devoted to horses and

Dan’s North Fork

A Touch of Venice 2255 Wickham Avenue, Mattituck, 631-298-5851 In a Long Island restaurant world where owners and chefs change as frequently as baseball managers and players, it is wonderful that this restaurant, situated in the Mat-O-Mar marina overlooking the beautiful waters of the Mattituck Inlet, has had the same owners and chef since it started nineteen years ago. Ettore Pennacchia now has his son Brian by his side. In the kitchen others in the family may be your waiter or busboy, and his wife Barbara still looks after the front of the house on weekends and also produces one of the best cheesecakes you will find anywhere (devotees should note that there are plans afoot to have this delicacy available for offsite sales sometime soon). A Touch of Venice offers seriously high quality Italian cuisine with dishes prepared with attention to tradition, while using the best of the plenitude of local foods available from land and sea around Long Island. On a summers evening that made us realize yet again just how fortunate we are to live out here - what could ever be wrong with a ‘staycation’ on the North Fork we started with a basket of excellent breads and some dips that were truly addictive. Restraint was called for to avoid spoiling our appetites for the tasting menu prepared by Ettore and Brian. A roasted baby eggplant with a fresh tomato sauce and Catapano Farms goat cheese was imbued with subtle, deep rich tastes and I have to admit that more bread was employed to mop up the remaining sauce. This also happened with the mussels because they were plump and fresh but the white wine, garlic, Parmigian cheese and gremolata sauce just could not be left in the bowl - so much for resolutions! The polenta dusted fried calamari were a picture with their surrounding salad of local greens and the citrustruffle oil vinaigrette was perfect. As you would expect, pasta is taken seriously here and the menu regularly offers choices of many wellknown and not so well known pastas. The first one we sampled comprised perfectly cooked shrimp and scallops with olives, capers over tagliatelle and the extra special touch came from some exquisitely preserved lemons that raised the dish to a new dimension. Then came a pasta new to us. Chitarri pasta, I have since discovered, is square edged and shaped like a guitar string. I have to say that it made some wonderful music to our taste buds with its dressing of butter, fresh saffron and goat cheese accompanied by sautééed baby zucchini and delicate zucchini flowers. We unanimously voted this as outstanding and among the best pasta dishes we have ever tasted, here or in Italy. If it is on the menu and you love pasta, order this and enjoy something special. Fish is always a major part of the menu here and fluke, flounder, swordfish and tuna were featured on the menu. We enjoyed polenta crusted fluke that was served over local spinach with some delicious purple potatoes and a sauce of capers, olives, cherry tomatoes and garlic that showed Mediterranean cuisine at its finest. This was simple, clean, fresh and incredibly good. Again, if this dish is on the menu enjoy, sit back with a glass of wine and think you are in Sicily. Talking of wines, the wine list is strong on local Long Island wines and also has a great offering of Italian wines listed by region. By the glass they run from $8 to $12 and bottles start at $24. Both the Palmer Sauvignon Blanc and the Bedell Chardonnay/Viognier blend that are available by the glass were very good examples of these varietals and went well with our meal. By the time Stella and I had finished our fish course, there was another unanimous vote that although tempting, there was no way that we could eat dessert

because we were so full. Suffice it to say that from previous visits, we know that the cheesecake is always very light and full of rich flavors and has gained a great reputation over the years that Barbara has been making it. Among the other desserts on offer were a berry crisp, chocolate cake and a classic tiramisu. Here is nothing like the tired versions so often offered, this tiramisu is light, moist and full of wonderful mouth filling tastes. A Touch of Venice is open every day from 12 p.m. for lunch and dinner. On Fridays and Sundays they have a solo guitarist playing from 6 to 9 p.m. The wait staff are very friendly and professional - we were even advised of the nuts in one of the dips just in case we

had any allergies! Appetizers range from $9 to $14; salads from $8 to $16; Pastas and entrees from $19 to $36 and desserts from $6 to $12. Ettore, Barbara and Brian have turned their dream into a reality through much hard work over the past nineteen years. In many ways they are great examples of the ‘American Dream’ and the beautiful restaurant they have created in “A Touch of Venice’ should be applauded and supported by everyone who loves success stories and even more importantly perhaps, loves excellent Italian food served in a beautiful waterfront setting. – Roy Bradbrook

Amanda Clark, Shelter Islander, Sails in Olympics GO AMANDA, GO!!! Shelter Island’s own sweet girl, Amanda Clark, is on the US Olympic team in China right now to compete in sailing. Of course, all the children raised on Shelter Island are exceptional, just as the men are all devastatingly handsome and the women are brilliant. Just as behind every successful man is a steadfast woman, behind every high achieving child is a brilliant mother.... I know Amanda by way of having worked for her fantastic mom some years ago. Her Dad, Denny, is a sweet fun guy, a real Islander who knows everybody and can have lunch with princes or paupers with equal aplomb. Amanda’s Mom, Ellen, is a trim, petite, beautiful brunette who is doesn’t even wear makeup, and on her worst day, looks better than me on my best day. I, who spend hours spackling, painting, detailing, can’t achieve her look. Plus, she wears L.L.Bean clothes all the time and looks like the women in the catalog. I’ve always wanted to wear tasteful clothes like that, but sequins and sparkles seem to find me no matter what I do. I had a lot of fun working for Ellen. I called her my LLBeanie boss. She ran a headhunter agency for high level scientists and I did the Internet research. She was wonderful to tolerate my whooping laugh whenever I came across a funny name. I kept a list of funny names. I learned that China only has 336 surnames for its huge population. The family comes first, followed by the first name and then the middle name. Pulling from such a small pool of surnames, there were some doozies like; Moon Loon, Soon, Long Pi, Hung Hung Hung, and all kinds of names whose double meaning entertain small minds with whooping laughs. Once, when going to a conference, Ellen wore a perfectly tailored gray suit, and not usually being a jewelry wearer, she relented and purchased a one-inch high gold lighthouse pin with a diamond in the top.

She put it on her lapel and asked me, “Do you think it’s too much?” I was probably wearing a florid floral top with aqua pants, pink sandals, giant yellow hoop earrings and no doubt, I had some beads on. My hair color could have been anything by Crayola. It was like Shelter Island’s version of Mary Tyler Moore asking Shelter Island’s version of Cyndi Lauper if this tiny gold pin was over the top. I think I laughed out loud. I wear bigger jewelry on my nightgown. We both had a good laugh when she realized I was not the person to ask... With such an honest, true, and genuinely humble Mom, I’m not surprised at all that Amanda has reached this pinnacle. I can only imagine how proud Ellen, Denny, her pretty sister Becky and her brother are. We are all proud of Amanda. And I am elated for Ellen. No Mom could be more deserving of such joy!

The 33rd annual Hampton Classic Horse Show, one of the nation’s premier hunter-jumper horse shows, returns to Bridgehampton, August 24-31. The Classic hosts a week of world-class equestrian competition in this exciting Olympic year, featuring competitions for riders ranging from leadline to juniors up to the pinnacle of the sport, grand prix show jumping. This year’s horse show promises to be one of the best ever. The featured attraction of the Hampton Classic once again will be the $200,000 FTI Grand Prix and FEI World Cup™ Qualifier, one of the most highly anticipated show-jumping classes in the country. This year, the Hampton Classic is offering an additional $50,000 in prize money over last year’s $150,000 class. The culminating event of the Classic, the FTI Grand Prix, will also serve as a World Cup Qualifier, gaining valuable points for riders hoping to qualify for the 2009 Rolex FEI World Cup Final in Las Vegas. Prize money has also been increased for Saturday’s $30,000 Sotheby’s International Realty Challenge and the horse show is initiating a $30,000 VOX Rider Challenge, sponsored by VOX Magazine, with the prize money being awarded to the top four riders in the horse show’s Open Jumper division. Riders competing in open jumper classes throughout the week will have their top finish in each class, regardless of mount, count towards their final point totals. This $30,000 incentive will increase the excitement of these open jumper classes during the week, as every ride could potentially take a rider one step closer to winning the Challenge. “We are thrilled to offer an increase in prize money as well as waiving the entry fee for Sunday’s Grand Prix,” said Shanette Cohen, executive director of the Hampton Classic. “We have some of the world’s best riders at the Hampton Classic and we value the commitment they make to the horse show. We feel that this is one thing we can do for them to show how much we value their participation.” The Hampton Classic Horse Show kicks off with Manhattan Mortgage Company’s Opening Day on Sunday, August 24. Opening Day features hundreds of Long Island competitors, and is highlighted by the popular Leadline competition in the Grand Prix ring, where 100 youngsters under the

age of eight hold center stage in the morning before giving way to the Opening Day Ceremony at noon. At the ceremony, the winner of the second annual WLIU Radio National Anthem Singing Contest will sing the anthem prior to the fastpaced $20,000 Nicolock Time Challenge, an open jumper competition that has been featured at the Classic since 2003. The Hampton Classic has been pleased to host the Finals of the Long Island Horse Show Series for Riders with Disabilities since 2006. The culmination of a summer-long series, the riders will vie for blue ribbons in walk-trot, walk-trot-canter, and figure-eight classes on Monday, August 25. While there are no major jumping competitions on Monday, this is a great day for spectators to catch their favorite horses and riders practicing in schooling sessions, enjoy a day shopping in the Boutique Garden and Stable Row, or visit the Exhibition Tent. There is no admission charge on Monday. Other Hampton Classic highlights include: Jumpers: Open jumper classes will be held in the Grand Prix ring on Tuesday and Wednesday, and bluhammock music will sponsor an open jumper competition on Thursday. Other open jumper highlights during the week include the $15,000 Prudential Douglas Elliman Speed Derby (Friday), the $50,000 Grand Prix Qualifier (Friday) and the $30,000 Sotheby’s International Realty Challenge (Saturday). These events along with the other open jumper classes will contribute to overall rider point totals for the $30,000 VOX Rider Challenge. The top up-and-coming young horses will compete in the $20,000 SHF Enterprises 5-year-old, $30,000 Split Rock Farm 6-year-old and $30,000 7-& 8year-old Young Jumper Championships. These divisions will be held Tuesday-Saturday of the show week. Those hoping to catch exciting amateur and junior competition shouldn’t miss the $10,000 Junior/Amateur-Owner Welcome Stake (Friday) the $15,000 WGHR Farm Junior/Amateur-Owner Jumper Classic (Saturday), and the $25,000 Calvin Klein Show Jumping Derby (Sunday). Children’s and Adult Amateur Jumpers will compete in the Marshall & Sterling Classics on Saturday. Hunters: The $10,000 Hermès Hunter

Classic for junior and amateur-owner riders tops off a week of outstanding hunter competition on Sunday, August 31. Other noteworthy hunter events during the week include the Corcoran Group’s Pony Hunter Classic (Saturday) and the Marshall & Sterling Children’s and Adult Amateur Hunter Classics (Tuesday and Wednesday). Green and regular working hunters will also compete during the week. Equitation: The unique two-phase $10,000 Wölffer Estate Equitation Championship will be conducted on Thursday and Saturday in the Grand Prix Ring. Riders under the age of 21 navigate a demanding course and are judged on style while racing against the clock. Spectators can catch other big equitation classes such as the USEF Zone 2 Medal Championship and the Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search nearly every other day of the week. Entertainment highlights include the second annual JustWorld International Horseless Horse Show at the exhibitor party on Friday. Wildly popular in its debut at the Classic last year, kids will have the chance to “jump” around the Grand Prix Ring over a miniature course designed by Olympic course designer Steve Stephens and win prizes, all while being judged by big-name riders. Proceeds from this event will benefit JustWorld International. And the family-friendly Cablevision’s Kids Day will return as usual on Saturday with face-painting, circus performers, and pony rides. Kids under the age of 12 will be admitted free on this day. Those unable to attend the Hampton Classic will have ample opportunity to see it on television. WVVH-TV, the official Long Island television station of the Hampton Classic, will broadcast up to five hours of competition and highlights each day during the Classic. These broadcasts can also be seen online at The Grand Prix will also air on Animal Planet at a to-be-determined time. The Classic will also receive extensive coverage on WLIU 88.3 FM, a long-time sponsor and the official radio station of the Hampton Classic. WLIU will broadcast updates daily throughout the Classic as well as live programs from the Classic on Sunday, August 24 and Saturday-Sunday, August 30-31.

The Value of Sponsorship in a Horse World While some people take their clients out golfing or for a nice dinner, Melissa Cohn, owner and founder of the Manhattan Mortgage Company, takes them to a place where the entertainment is already arranged and the setting couldn’t be more ideal. That location is the Hampton Classic Horse Show, one of the most prestigious events not only in the nation but also in the world. Thirteen years ago, Cohn chose to sponsor Opening Day at the Hampton Classic and she’s never looked back. That’s a relationship that just fits for her company, her networking, her family and her passion for riding horses. Manhattan Mortgage gains lot zfrom that sponsorship is something that others inside and outside the horse community can learn from. For Cohn and Manhattan Mortgage it is a win-win situation. “I sponsor the Classic as it is a great venue to entertain a large number of clients in a very unique environment,” explains Cohn. “How many mortgage companies have luncheons at horse shows never mind the greatest outdoor show in the country?” Yet that’s not the only value that Melissa gains

Opening Day, which this year takes place on August 24th. It’s not just the sponsorship but also the fact that Melissa can share her love of horses with her clients, family and friends, because Melissa owns horses and competes at the Hampton Classic as do her two daughters. “Riding is my passion and this sponsorship also allows me to ride and participate and be with my kids, while I am working the whole time,” explains Cohn, who is not exaggerating. This petite businesswoman is always a hum of activity, answering phone calls, negotiating deals, hosting and entertaining

clients in between getting out there with the rest of the competitors and dealing with the stress and the thrill of competing at a show as prestigious as the Hampton Classic. “I truly believe that clients and brokers get more out of the fact that I am part of the show, not just a sponsor in a fancy dress,” she explains. “It is my life and they love the fact that I open the door to my personal world in a business venue.” DOING GOOD WITH HER SPONSORSHIP With all that she does you wonder if there is any room for more. Yet, in Cohn’s case that more is all (continued on page 86)

from this sponsorship. Beyond the typical amenities of marketing and advertising support (in print and on the radio), she also has use of the Hampton Classic logo, something that is recognized worldwide. There’s signage around the grounds, regular announcements throughout the day, the use of a chalet that is ideally located overlooking the main grand prix arena and the title sponsorship for

Hampton Classic Hosts Finals of Riders With Disabilities Equestrians who compete in the Long Island Horse Show Series for Riders with Disabilities (LIHSSRD) once again have the opportunity to compete at The Hampton Classic Horse Show on Monday, August 25. The LIHSSRD made its debut at the Hampton Classic in 2006. The show series, created by HorseAbility, was founded to provide riders with disabilities the same competitive experience that other equestrians enjoy. “We are thrilled to welcome back the LIHSSRD championships to the Hampton Classic,” said Hampton Classic Executive Director Shanette Barth Cohen. “It is wonderful to see these riders compete and we urge everybody to come out and support them.” The LIHSSRD competition at the Hampton Classic is the culmination of the organization’s eight-show series that took place at various horse shows on Long Island in the spring and summer of 2008. Thirty-five riders competed in the series with the hope of qualifying for the Finals, but only the top 10 in the “With Aids” Division and top 9 in the “Independent” Division qualified to ride at the Hampton Classic Finals. Riders compete in classes such as walk, walk/trot, walk/trot/figure 8 and walk/trot/canter and are awarded points according to USEF rules for equitation classes. Last year, Tara Smilowitz was Champion in the Equitation “Independent” Division and Kelsey Renz was Reserve Champion. In the “With Aids” Division, April Kloepfer won the Championship and Victoria Natale was Reserve Champion. These four riders have been invited back to the Finals to present this year’s champions with their awards. HorseAbility was founded in 1993 by Kathleen (Katie) Kilcommons McGowan when she lent her horse to a friend and physical therapist who used therapeutic riding as a method of treatment for a child with cerebral palsy. When McGowan saw the child’s physical and emotional connection with the animal and subsequent acceleration in his treatment, she knew she had found her calling. Combining her education, love of children, and long-standing relationship with horses, she founded HorseAbility. Since then, the organization has become a New York non-profit corporation and is one of only two “premier centers” on Long Island as accredited by the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association. Its mission is to offer a wide range of horse-related programs to those with special needs in order to promote their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. “We are thrilled to be returning to the Hampton Classic Horse Shows for the LIHSSRD Finals this year,” said McGowan. “Our riders are more excited than ever, and we are looking forward to a great day of competition!” This was the biggest season for LIHSSRD thus far, with riders from five different barns from all over Long Island participating. Host shows this season were Thomas School (Melville, NY), Salt River (Center Moriches, NY) and Glen Head (Muttontown, NY).

The Official Poster, by Mickey Paraskevas A painting by renowned illustrator Michael “Mickey” Paraskevas has been selected as the artwork for the official poster of the 2008 Hampton Classic Horse Show, marking the fourth time the artist’s work has been selected for this honor (his work was previously chosen in 1987, 1992 and 1998). “Mickey Paraskevas is as much a part of the Hampton Classic Horse Show as the posters themselves,” said Shanette Cohen, executive director of the Hampton Classic. “To have his work featured in four posters speaks to what a valuable member he is of the Hampton’s community as well as the art community.

We are thrilled to show his work this year.” Paraskevas, a well-known illustrator among magazine art directors, has had his work appear in such prestigious publications as Sports Illustrated, Time, Town & Country and Esquire as well as earning numerous awards from industry professionals. “I love the Hampton Classic. I’ve been coming to this show since 1985 and each show has a special memory for me. I am proud to have been selected to be the poster artist four times. I can’t think of another honor across the country that I would have been as proud to receive,” said Paraskevas. “I have countless sketch

about giving back. Sure, she’s an entrepreneur running a successful company who wants to constantly reach a higher pinnacle. Yet, in the process, she has never forgotten her roots or the value gained in giving back. Cohn brings her desire to help others into her Hampton Classic relationship. “In years past I’ve used the chalet for charitable functions by the CDCH. One year we had 65 kids with special needs and had a fun kid’s day with a face painter and magician and the horses to boot.” Near and dear to Cohn’s heart are any charitable causes that touch the lives of children and the less fortunate. In addition to CDCH she is also a major benefactor of The Retreat (both are in East Hampton), The Goddard Institute in New York City, the American Cancer Society, and the Habitat for Humanity. “I look for groups where the money will go to the cause, not the advertising or party,” she comments. It’s obvious why she supports causes such as the CDCH, which is a place where children of different abilities come together in an extraordinary learning environment; or The Retreat which supports victims of domestic violence. Habitat for Humanity also makes sense since this is an organization that builds simple, decent, affordable houses in partnership with those in need of adequate shelter. So often anything to do with horses is targeted by those outside the horse community as being elitist. Yet, with Manhattan Mortgage’s sponsorship of Opening Day and hosting of groups such as the CDCH in her chalet, Cohn has shown how even the

VIP sections of the horse world can be accessible to everyone. THE VALUE OF ENTERTAINING CLIENTS IN A HAMPTON CLASSIC HORSE SHOW SETTING Hosting clients is undoubtedly one of the biggest values of the Manhattan Mortgage sponsorship. “We entertained daily, and in the past there were even downpours while our chalet was humming with guests. Every year we entertain clients, brokers and people that we do business with as our guests.” All year long Cohn is talking business, working through deals and lending money. Yet, at the Hampton Classic she has a chance to get to know her clients in a setting that not only they enjoy but she feels right at home in. Hosting people in her chalet is “a great opportunity to spend time with clients and brokers in a casual, unique setting,” notes Cohn. “As a guest of the Classic the event is there as the backdrop but it helps to keep the company in the forefront of everyone’s mind. It’s a priceless ticket for many and well appreciated by all.” It’s also an opportunity to do business since Manhattan Mortgage is only one of many Hampton Classic sponsors. “It always helps to meet other sponsors, especially when there are so many real estate related sponsors at the show,” she adds. “And we get real business from the show, but it’s primarily a big thank you to our clients and referral sources.” In business, whenever you do something you balance the costs and the value or benefit gained from the money you spend. While the Hampton Classic is

the major equine event that Cohn sponsors annually, there are others that she supports at different levels. It allows her company to reach an audience that needs the product she offers while allowing her to also be surrounded by a world she loves. It also brings her clients to a unique setting they probably would never go to on their own. Consequently, not only has Cohn gained exposure for her company but she introduced a whole new group of people to the horse world. So, in the end not only do she and her company gain from her sponsorships, but the horse community also benefits. We often listen to conversations focusing on why the horse world in general doesn’t get more support. If more companies could understand the value that sponsorships in the horse world achieve, they too would learn what Cohn has. The horse world is unique and different. It targets a vast audience that is appropriate for many different types of companies and it affords the sponsor the opportunity to host guests in an environment that is distinctive and singular. “We use our sponsorship for PR throughout the year, not just for the week of the Hampton Classic,” explains Cohn. “And there truly are no mortgage companies that do what we do at the show, never mind have a company head that participates. It makes us real to the clients and brokers, and helps to humanize and set us apart from others in my industry. Most sponsors don’t even know what they are looking at, but I am part of the fabric of the show and have been now for 13 years. It makes a big difference!”

Arts & Entertainment Yuck it Up at Bay Street Comedy Series By Tiffany Razzano The summer might nearly be over, but there are still plenty of laughs to be had at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor throughout the next month. Jamie Kennedy, writer, producer, actor and comedian, is one of the remaining featured performers scheduled for Bay Street’s current comedy season. He’ll be coming to Sag Harbor on August 31. And fans of his off-kilter – and often very adult – humor won’t be disappointed. You can expect him to perform some of his impressions and bizarre characters and to regale the things going on in his life. “Like, I’ve got this really hot cousin,” he joked. “And when I look at her, I think, ‘How retarded would our kids be?’” As an indication of what you might expect at his upcoming show at Bay Street, countless times during a recent phone conversation with Kennedy he’d stop and say, “I guess you can’t really print that in Dan’s Papers.” And you can tell he was smiling when he said it. At his upcoming show, Kennedy will also be showing a clip of his movie Heckler, a documentary about heckling that will be released on DVD September 9. The documentary was an accidental project for Kennedy. While filming a stand-up special, Unwashed, for Comedy Central, he noticed some interesting heckles were caught on film. “They were pretty funny,” he said. “They were funnier than the act.” From there, he decided to pursue the subject of heckling for a documentary, interviewing fellow comics such as Lewis Black, David Cross and Patton Oswalt. But he didn’t stop there. He also interviewed sports stars, musicians and even George Lucas. “As I started doing it, I realized I had the makings of something pretty cool,” he said. What started as a 12-minute

short film that received good, critical responses at film festivals, such as the Aspen Comedy Festival and the Tribeca Film Festival, grew into a feature-length film. “It took three years of my life. It was a real passion project.” Growing up in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, Kennedy had a unique start in the entertainment business. He moved to Los Angeles to become a movie extra, thinking it would be easy to break into film and television that way. Of course, this notion was misguided, and he wound up taking on random jobs, such as waiting tables, telemarketing and working as a page. Then, in an attempt to further his fledgling stand-up career, he invented one of his first characters – Marty Power. Power was an alter ego of sorts for Kennedy, who used the character to pose as his own agent when trying to book shows and gain the attention of real agents and managers. He eventually got his break in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet and as Randy in the Scream movies. Prior to that, he had bit roles in various TV series, including “Married… with Children,” “Unhappily Ever After” and “Ellen.” (“You know, back when she still had boyfriends,” Kennedy said.) Over the years, Kennedy has become especially well known as a funny man who wears many different hats – actor, writer and even producer. His hit sketch comedy series on the WB “The Jamie Kennedy Experiment,” which he produced, wrote and starred in, now enjoys a cult status. But he shouldn’t be pigeonholed as solely a comedic actor. He’s proven his chops

in many other projects, such as Three Kings and Boiler Room. “People who really know me, know I can mix it up,” Kennedy said. “In Scream, I was the funny guy. But that was still an edgier movie. Three Kings I thought was a very funny movie, but it was also dark and meaningful…Last year I was on ‘Criminal Minds.’ I played a psycho. People went on IMDB and wrote about ‘what a creep Jamie is.’ I guess that means I did a really good job.” Coming up, you can see Kennedy as a regular on “Ghost Whisperer” with Jennifer Love Hewitt this fall, and he’s also signed up as producer of Northwood, an indie drama starring Nick Stahl. Early on, Kennedy learned that in order to have more opportunities for himself as an actor, he needed to create the projects himself, which is why he started writing and producing. “It’s funny, all these different things I do, mostly it’s out of necessity and ADD,” he said. He credits other funny men in show business – Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Tyler Perry, Woody Allen – as people he looks up to. “I read a lot about Woody Allen and he said, ‘If I didn’t make my own movies, you’d never know my name.’” But, he’s quick to add, “It’s not easy. You have to prove yourself to people. And sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.” Also coming up at Bay Street is Judah Friedlander, Eddie Griffin, Jeffrey Ross, and Brian Posehn.

New York City Opera, Right in Westhampton New York City Opera was founded in 1943 to provide financially accessible opera performances to a wide audience – opera that would reflect the company’s commitment to innovative repertory choices and the development of American opera. The City Opera was dubbed “The People’s Opera Company” and will always be a sanctuary for American Opera. Funding for this performance is provided, in part, by Suffolk County under the auspices of the Office of Cultural Affairs, Steve Levy, county executive, and The

Morris and Alma Schapiro Fund. Special Offering: $200 VIP Ticket includes PreShow Cocktail Hour, Gourmet Dinner & Wine. This private event is limited to 80 privileged guests.

The New York City Opera returns to the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center for a third time on August 23 at 8:30 p.m. Presenting a glorious evening of their favorite works, this revered company is sure to be a great opera fix for those who opted to avoid Lincoln Center. The idea to bring the NYCO to the WHBPAC stage was suggested by Emilie Corey, who sits on the boards of both the NYCO and the WHBPAC. “This creative alliance is good for both the NYCO and the WHBPAC,” siad Clare Bisceglia, WHBPAC executive director. “The Opera has an opportunity to perform beyond city limits and the PAC has the privilege of presenting this venerable company right here on the East End!” The performance will feature selections for both opera devotees and novices. “The NYCO 2008-09 Season Preview at the WHBPAC is a great introduction to Opera,” said Jane Gullong, NYCO executive director. “This elegant, yet relaxed, performance will showcase the company’s rising stars in recital, accompanied by a lively, and always insightful, narration by Maestro Jerry Steichen. “Mr. Steichen introduces each aria with background information in a most charming and amusing way,” added Gullong. The program will include selections from Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Rigoletto, Pagliacci, Candide, The Pirates of Penzance, and Thaïs. And with the pitch perfect acoustics in the WHBPAC theatre, the voices of City opera singers will soar.

Review... buffalo gal

James Leynse

A. R. Gurney returns to Primary Stages at 59E59 Theaters with the New York premier of his charming new comedy Buffalo Gal. Set in a regional theater where a production of The Cherry Orchard is about to be mounted, Gurney bows in homage to the greatness of Chekhov. He draws many amusing parallels to Chekhov’s characters and themes in this latest effort. Television star Susan Sullivan (“Falcon Crest” and “Dharma & Greg”) makes a fine presence as the fading Hollywood star at the center of his bittersweet tale. The direction by Mark Lamos mines the backstage story for all the humor, while lamenting the diminishing power of the theater and the changes wrought by the passing of time. Amanda (Sullivan), a once glamorous Hollywood star now past her prime and approaching the twilight of her career, returns to her hometown of Buffalo to play the deluded aristocrat Madame Ranevskaya. Her baggage includes three Emmys, three husbands, two Oscar nominations, alcoholism and an estranged daughter. She recently appeared in an episode of “CSI Miami” as a judge with Alzheimer’s, rationalizing her appearance by saying, “everyone does judges when they need money.” Faced with the prospect of playing Granny Sweetpants in a trite new Fox sitcom, she flees in horror to the welcoming arms of the theater. Arriving a day early with her contracts still unsigned and clearly conflicted by the lure of a possible big payday out West, Amanda attempts to throw herself into the task at hand, while avoiding

her agent’s urgent calls. The entire action takes place on stage, where the production’s savvy yet stressed director Jackie (Jennifer Regan), who has a need to prove herself to her lesbian lover, will begin rehearsals the next day. She’s aided by her logical stage manager, Roy (James Waterston), and his animated young assistant, Debbie (Carmen M. Hierlihy). Complications arise immediately, when Amanda learns a cast

member, who was to play her brother, has dropped out. His replacement, in the now “color blind staging,” is an African-American actor James (Dathan B. Williams), who attended classes with Amanda when the two were just children. Further challenges crop up when Amanda’s first love, Dan (Mark Blum), shows up, proclaiming his undying devotion to her and reminding her of their once passionate times together in hopes of rekindling their romance. The evening shifts focus temporarily, but it is the relationship between Amanda and Jackie, written with a nonjudgmental empathy for both characters, that resonates most strongly. The play is slightly comparable to Gurney’s recent Indian Blood, but the evening, nonetheless, has its charms. Mark Lamos has kept the tone light, stressing the laughter, and allowing the supporting players to be rather one-noted. As a result, Sullivan, unfortunately, has less to play off and her good portrayal that blends Amanda’s neediness with an air of superiority doesn’t go far enough into the darker side, a problem apparent in the evening’s dramatic impact as well. Buffalo Gal opened at 59E59 Theaters on August 5 for a limited run that has been extended until September 13. Tickets are available by calling 212-279-4200, online at or in person at the box office.

Bottle Shock There were more than a few people who at first shrugged at the idea of Sideways, the 2004 comedy that seemed to be about wine – a subject not often tapped for laughs. However, we soon learned it was merely the window dressing for a special film that tackled a greater tale, so rich in its telling, yet double-warmed with lovely cinematography. Now, with Bottle Shock, the wine country of California is the cover holding a good book, but this time the tale is remarkably different. Forget the emotional woes of Paul Giamatti – here the spotlight shines on the deftly patronizing Alan Rickman as a snooty Englishman who ends up creating a verily patriotic moment for the USA. Based on a true story, Rickman plays Steven Spurrier, owner of a struggling vintner’s shop and wine academy in Paris (circa 1976) who is hoping to find something that will make some noise for his business. In desperation, he comes to Napa Valley, which three decades ago wasn’t considered much by vino enthusiasts. He arrives at the Sonoma winery of Jim Barrett (Bill Pullman), a man who ditched his law firm in order to explore his passion for creating a socko chardonnay. But his struggles don’t end at the world’s disparagement of California creations, as his son Bo (Chris Pine) struggles in a semi-love triangle with the treacherous Gustavo (Freddy Rodriguez). The strife gets heated as the two suitors seethe over who lands the fetching intern Sam (Rachael Taylor), and Bo doesn’t help matters with his laid-back attitude toward his dad’s doings. But Spurrier sees the magic, and, with his help, the Barrett wines get to France in time for a taste test. Make that the taste test – a true moment in time known as “The 1976 Blind Taste Test.” And much like Titanic, the ending is a known fact (so we won’t spoil your fun if you don’t know the story) – but this being a movie, you can guess things are going to shape up

for the American wine industry after the competition. All in all, this is a charming little piece that does a lot with a little. A story like this, in reality, is not so chockfull of drama energy and come-from-behind exuberance, but director and co-writer Randall Miller found this minor footnote in history and threw in lots of texture (while throwing out people who were actually there in real life), so don’t feel as if this

is a learning experience about the history of the California wine industry. But let’s face it: as any 10th grader finds out come test time, history in movies rarely matches the truth. However, if you can excuse the factual twisting, what you receive is a smart piece with some good turns by Pullman and Denis Farina, who plays the ex-American who guides Rickman’s Spurrier to the up-andcoming wines of California. Chris Pine is good too – although his blonde wig seems about two sizes too big – but it’s fun watching him, knowing that he’s about to take on the role of James Kirk in a Shatner-less Star Trek sequel. There are even some solid turns by Taylor and by Eliza Dushku (Faith from TV’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), and although their presence as throwaway characters seems more about opening the door to the interest of eager gentlemen come DVD rental time, they hold their own with their more accomplished cast mates. But in the end, this film belongs to Rickman. To many, he’s immediately recognized as either Severus Snape from the Harry Potter movies or as Hans Gruber from the original Die Hard, but for the film buffs who have seen him in Truly Madly Deeply, Sense and Sensibility or even the cult-classic Galaxy Quest, it moves many to see a film once he’s announced he’s taking part. Combine that with the Rocky-like story here, and the beautiful visuals and shots of the Napa Valley throughout the movie, and it becomes clear that Bottle Shock can really inspire – on many different levels.

Feed the Need Reaches for the Sky Over the past year, Feed the Need has grown from a group of high school kids who played music together in their church band into a well known local band that has played for all ages, young and old, at a variety of venues across the South Fork. And things keep looking up for the quartet. Since March, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played at The Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett three times, released two CDs and won the Town of Southamptonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s June 13 Battle of the Bands. Twin brothers Matt and Josh King, guitar/vocals and keys/vocals respectively, who attended Southampton High School and will head to the New England Institute of Art this fall, and drummer Jake Terando, who goes to East Hampton High School, played in the band at Community Bible Church in Sag Harbor together. When their original bassist left for college last year, Connor Waleko, who also goes to EHHS, was brought in. It was Jeff White who organized the band and other activities at the church, and initially encouraged the teens to form Feed the Need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had a vision and we got sucked into his vision,â&#x20AC;? said Matt King. White now acts as manager for the group. Their initial repertoire consisted of 14 covers, songs by the likes of the Beatles, Sugar Ray, Jack Johnson and U2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing hardcore, just mellow sounding music,â&#x20AC;? said King. Eventually, the brothers started writing melodies of their own, borrowing from the mellow rock they were playing, adding the occasional funk and reggae

twist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were always coming up with melodies, but I was scared to write lyrics because I was embarrassed to hear my words outloud,â&#x20AC;? King said. White helped the brothers find inspiration for their lyrics and their songwriting took off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The music we write is an original sound that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be compared to anything. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard the Beatles. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard a lot of different stuff.â&#x20AC;? The result was their first, self-titled album, which was recorded at Black Dog Studios in Hampton Bays and released May 10 at their second Talkhouse gig. The album featured 12 original songs as well as covers of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beautiful Dayâ&#x20AC;? by U2 and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some Dayâ&#x20AC;? by Sugar Ray. With even more songs under their belt and ready

to be recorded by the time their first CD came out, Feed the Need decided to release another album, Trying to Touch the Sky, this September, just months after their first. This time, instead of heading into the studio, they recorded the songs live on a farm in Sagaponack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a lot cheaper than the studio and it was more fun to play together,â&#x20AC;? King said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the studio, we were all separate.â&#x20AC;? And the inspiration for the live albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title is obviously the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical ambitions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just trying to get bigger, have more fun and get out there,â&#x20AC;? said King, adding that he hopes the band will eventually be signed by a label. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is trying so hard to make it. We hear weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talented. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just trying to make it. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just trying to touch the sky.â&#x20AC;? For now, the group continues to win over fans on the East End, playing at a number of youth-oriented events for Southampton and East Hampton Towns, the Bridgehampton Fire Department annual fundraiser, the Parrish Art Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Project Sandstorm and other private parties and benefits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little tiny kids love them and 85-year-old people love them,â&#x20AC;? White said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody loves them.â&#x20AC;?

Holy Mackerel! Spanish mackerel, a pretty fish with little yellow spots on its silvery skin, considered one of the best mackerels from a culinary standpoint, is lean and delicately flavored. Mackerel is available locally while the waters are still warm. While mackerel is considered an oily fish it is not strong tasting, and like salmon and tuna they are highest in the health benefits of omega-3’s. Tracy at my fish market went on about the virtues of mackerel while I looked on as my whole beautiful fish was filleted. On the way home from the fish market I stopped at a local farm stand and picked up a bunch of sauce tomatoes at 50 cents to the pound. My plan was to bake the firm fillets in an aromatic mixture of peeled and chopped tomatoes, garlic, capers and lemon zest for a savory entrée. I got high marks at dinner that night – shouldn’t I always? For years I’ve loved a salad combining sole with shrimp. Why not use Spanish mackerel, I thought, since the Portuguese title of this endearing salad is Maionese De Camarao Y Linguado – which translates to mayonnaise of shrimp and sole – close enough. The Spanish mackerel fillets would make a fine substitute for the sole. The fillets are simmered in butter and lemon juice in a heady mixture of parsley, sugar, peppercorns and bay leaves, combined with cooked shrimp enlivened with lemon, parsley and mayonnaise and served on a bed of Romaine, hard cooked egg and a dollop of mayonnaise with rolled anchovy garnish. An Asian inspired broiled mackerel couldn’t be simpler to prepare, served with quick-cooking soba noodles. Baked, braised or broiled Spanish mackerel rates four stars!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 1. Cut a criss-cross in rounded side of tomatoes and blanch them in boiling water about 40-50 seconds or until skins loosen. Drain and rinse under cold running water. The skins should slip off easily with a paring knife. Cut in half and chop coarsely. Transfer tomatoes to a non-reactive shallow baking pan and add garlic, salt and pepper, capers, lemon zest and olive oil. Stir to mix. Place baking dish in the oven, bake for 20 minutes. Sauce can be prepared up to an hour or so ahead to this point. BAKED MACKEREL WITH TOMATOES, GARLIC AND CAPERS For each of the following mackerel recipes have the thin bony centerline removed from the large fillets. For the recipe below I purchased sauce tomatoes, slightly over ripe and practically seedless. Serves 4 1-1 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 1-2 tablespoons brined capers, rinsed Shredded zest of 1 lemon 3-4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 pound fillet of mackerel or other firm white flesh fish Juice of 1 lemon

2. When ready to serve place the fish fillets in the pan and spoon over the sauce. Drizzle with lemon juice and return to preheated oven. Bake for 8-10 minutes until fish is cooked through. MAYONNAISE DE CAMARAO Y LINGUADO This salad of shrimp and sole mayonnaise is Portuguese in origin. Serves 6 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/3 cup lemon juice 1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley 1 teaspoon sugar 1 teaspoon coarse (kosher) salt 6 whole peppercorns 2 bay leaves 3 pounds mackerel or sole fillets, cut in half lengthwise (continued on page 95)

Going to the Farm Stand — at a Store Near You “some supermarket chains are renting out their parking lots to farmer’s markets on certain days; others have put a farmers market right inside their store.” During this time of economic recession, King Kullen’s plan is to support both the farmers by buying local produce and pleasing shoppers through cheaper produce, cutting down on transportation and storing costs that have been necessary in previous years. While the intentions are good, the long-term changes are yet to be seen. Farm stands, which survive

solely on local produce, from fresh corn to tomatoes, cucumbers and other fruits and vegetables, have been steadily increasing their prices year by year. One local Bridgehampton resident complained, “I can’t believe I’m paying $17 now for a blueberry pie – and I’m sure they’ve gotten smaller too.” Last month, Wal-Mart entered the locally grown food race by announcing they intend to invest upwards of $400 million this year in local farmers across the (continued on page 95)

been an explosion in Fair Trade awareness rooted in great pressure from the government and from general public opinion to start supplying more organic, healthy produce from developing third world nations. As a result, many homes are switching to Fair Trade coffee, cocoa, bananas and many other options. While the produce you may find in your local East End supermarket is not necessarily bought from Ghana, Botswana or Togo, household name supermarkets such as King Kullen and Waldbaum’s are now working in conjunction with local farms to provide us with the freshest goods possible. “We have a gentleman’s agreement with close to a dozen farms on Long Island to take all the produce they can grow each summer. Farmers such as Phil Schmitt of Schmitt Farm in Riverhead and Bruno’s Farm grow their crops almost entirely for our use,” said King Kullen’s produce spokesman Rich Conger. “While clearly the farms out here are seasonal, so we can’t provide our customers with local produce year round, we do try and exhaust the Long Island farm supply before looking elsewhere.” East End farmers focus on agricultural farming with exceptional quality and skill, providing supermarkets and independent farm stands with fresh corn, lettuce, squash, tomatoes, potatoes and many more items. The move by King Kullen has been felt across Long Island, where the company is continually expanding on their 44 stores. A recent article in the New York Times stated that

By Jaime Felber We are living in a generation where the health of our children, and the survival of our planet have become of utmost importance. Hybrid cars were expensive when they first hit the market. Then they became affordable, and now they have become haute couture. Television shows on healthy cooking, healthy living and how to solar power your toilets to keep you warm are inundating our screens. Now, a welcome development in the same vein is sweeping across Long Island. While the East End has an abundance of organic food shops and healthy alternative natural stores, it’s not always feasible to buy locally grown or organic food, as the prices tend to be substantially greater than that of the mass, cheaply produced alternative.

country. This is the latest move in a trend that’s swept across the country, fueled by the slow economy. “It’s a good move for supermarkets to invest locally. It’s better for the local economy, and the buyer sees a direct result in lower prices – the closer the food is grown to the stores, the faster it can get onto the stands. Therefore it’s fresher, and also means that there is less cost of fuel, which is generally transferred on to the customer through increased prices,” said the manager of Falkowski Farms in Bridgehampton. This past July, The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, which carries such stores as Waldbaum’s, Food Emporium and Pathmark under their brand,

announced new partnerships with local farmers in New York, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland, making A&P the largest retailer of locally grown produce in the Northeast. Waldbaum’s is currently in its second year of supplying the East End with local produce. While the first year they supplied only corn, greens and potatoes, the store now has a much wider variety of fresh, local gourmet foods to offer. Speaking out about the new local-grown supermarket craze, U.S Senator Charles E. Schumer remarked, “Long Island farmers produce some of the finest produce in the Northeast and every time a major supermarket chain commits to selling their harvest locally,

4. Arrange romaine leaves on 6 individual plates. Place 1/2 flounder fillet on each leaf. Mound the sliced shrimp mixture over each fillet and place 2 whole shrimp on top. Edge each plate with hard-cooked egg halves, dot with a dab of mayonnaise and top with an anchovy fillet. Serve at room temperature.

it’s a win for the farmers and a win for the entire community. [A&P’s] announcement shows yet again the hand-in-hand relationship we have, and so desperately need, to keep farms on Long Island thriving.” Local East End shoppers support the move, many being of the mindset that locally grown is definitely better, both for themselves, and for the community. However, when pressed, many admitted that while they support the concept of buying local produce, few would be willing to go out of their way to ensure the vegetables they buy were local, preferring the simplicity of whatever is cheapest, rather than what is best for the local economy.

Art Commentary

by Marion Wolberg Weiss

North Fork Venues, Part 1: Art Sites, Boltax and Mosquito Hawk

M.W. Weiss

There are lots of worthy exhibits that pervade our North Fork, from Riverhead to Shelter Island to Greenport. As diverse as these geographic areas are, so, too, are the art galleries that define the locale. Riverhead’s Art Sites is one such venue; the current show, by Elizabeth Silver, includes an arresting body of images (pardon the pun) called “The Body Electric: New American Expressionism.” What makes the drawings interesting is the very fact that they are female figures seen from a very different perspective. Most of our local artists known for their figuration use the female body as a narrative device (Marilyn Church) or sensual object (Bob Markel). Conversely, Silver uses the woman to question conventional images of identity. Her females do not reinforce any family roles that we’re familiar with: mother, wife, daughter. Nor do they evoke images of sexuality, often identified with the female figure. Rather, Silver’s forms are grotesque and exaggerated. They are also androgenous; we are not sure if the subjects are men or women, although the drawings are given females names (like “Lisa” and “Jessica”). The works are easier to appreciate when we realize that such elements signify Expressionism where extreme contrasts are common. Perhaps Silver is forcing us to go beneath a female’s surface reality, to see her with all her multi- faceted dimensions.

Work by Jon Snow Shelter Island’s Boltax Gallery offers another diverse show, by Melina Berkenwald, “Wandering Visions.” This exhibit highlights another varied format: photographic interventions and etched-glass installations.The idea of movement is essential to the interventions where the artist’s unique technique creates a combination of photography, drawing and painting. Thus, the reality of the photographs, when printed on glossy canvas and threads, produces a place caught between actuality and an “other” world. The movement becomes the subject matter or theme, as we see scenes connoting leaving, traveling and arriving. In this way, the viewer gets a first-hand look at an entire journey and the various emotions

that are evoked. Across the steeet is a new gallery on Shelter Island, Mosquito Hawk. Its setting is spacious and eyecatching: an old church. We could even consider the building as an installation itself, natural light streaming through the curved windows adding a special touch. The work itself is not “spiritual,” but there is a fantasy-like aura to many of the pieces;. For example, Kerry Sharkey Miller’s photographs of toy animals and her miniature carousels are evocative as well as mysterious. Jon Snow’s huge mosaics recall a table created by Lee Krasner in the current exhibit at the PollockKrasner House, perhaps because mosaics are still rather rare. Snow’s work more clearly reminds this critic of Julian Schnabel’s plate fragments which he did several years ago. In Snow’s work, however, there’s a suggestion of mythic patterns that is quite fascinating. Alexis Martino’s photographs also suggest primitive settings although the human figures are from the present. “Woman in Woods” is particularly mythlike, conjuring up images of a goddess and ancient rituals. In fact, the entire gallery ambience is like wandering in the woods, only to discover a magical and wonderful world. “The Body Elective” will be on view at Art Sites until Sept. 14. The show at Boltax Gallery will be available until August 25. The current show at Mosquito Hawk will be on view until August 24.

Honoring the Artist: Melissa Hornung Talking with cover artist Melissa Hornung always brings lots of surprises and leaves the listener with a renewed sense of enthusiasm for life. That makes perfect sense, considering that Hornung herself has abundant energy and passion for all kinds of experiences. Q: You mentioned that you went to Paris with your mother in May. That must have been special. A; Yes. I had never been there before. This may sound like a cliche, but I loved the Eiffel Tower and the boat trip down the Seine. There just wasn’t enough time to do everything. Words can’t describe the experience; nothing prepares you for Paris. No books or movies. Q: What were some unusual sites you saw? A: The oldest vineyard in France, near the Sacre Coeur at the top of the hill, the highest point in Paris. Other surprising places were the beautiful cemeteries. Q: ( laughing ) But you rode no horses in Paris. A: No. I reserve that for home. In fact I was thinking about moving to Aiken, South Carolina where they have lots of horse farms. I love it there. Or Wellington, Florida, near Palm Beach. It’s a Mecca for horses and the International Stadium for Polo is there. Q: I know you are as busy as ever when it comes to your horse activities. A: Yes. I’m going to Argentina this December for the Golden Cup Finals of Polo. I’m looking forward

to getting inspired for my next art series. Q: Speaking of inspiration, you certainly were inspired for this week’s cover. What’s the painting called? A: “Freedom Horse.” The rider is the daughter of the man who commissioned me to paint it. The horse is really feeling the weather. Q: I know you have a deep passion for horses, your own four and others. And you care deeply about helping charities that care for horses. A: I will do anything I can for a fund raiser for off-track horses. That’s for horses who no longer race because they are too old, have an injury or whose feet are soft. Some people who have off-track horses will sell them for meat. Money comes first for them. Q: You would never do that. A: No. In fact, I want to have a shelter for these horses, a non-profit place. Horses are majestic creatures for our care. We owe it to them to take care of them. They are one of my most passionate causes. Q: You have other passions as well. For example, your feature writing. A: Right. I like to make people think. I like to remind them to connect with people. If you’re in a

miserable mood, smile. That helps to overcome your mood. Q: What about your art? That’s another aspect of your life that you feel strongly about. A: There’s nothing more inspirational and there’s no better feeling of self-accomplishment than through the arts. There’s an artist in all of us. Find your inner artist. Q: What is it about painting horses that serves this purpose? A: Painting a horse forces you to look at every fiber, every view. It helps establish a strong relationship with horses. I have four horses that I really love. They inspire me. – Marion Wolberg Weiss For Ms. Hornung’s prints and art cards, see For information about the artist, go to Correction: In last week’s “Honoring the Artist: Walter Bernard,” it was noted that “Portraits of a Lady” would be on Showtime, Sept. 11.

By the Book By Tricia Rayburn

On Self-Publishing with Southampton Author Phil Keith Q: Animus, your novel about a secret terrorist cell hiding out in Montauk’s Camp Hero, was recently published by BookSurge. What was your path to publication? A: Like most new authors, I diligently searched for an agent to represent me. I had a couple of connections and ran through my Rolodex, and also scoured the latest edition of Writer’s Market. I prepared a killer cover letter, sample chapters, outlines; whatever the prospective agents wanted, I sent. The end result was a big fat zero. I then went after a selected group of publishers, but quickly discovered that publishers really do not want to talk to you unless you have an agent. I began to realize that writing was the easy part, and also started to wonder why I was beating my head against the wall. Eventually, I drew up my own sales and marketing plan, and shopped around for a good self-publisher. I also entered Amazon’s “Breakthrough Novel Award” contest. Out of tens of thousands of entries, I won a third prize, which was a free publishing contract with BookSurge, Amazon’s on-demand publishing partner. This saved me about $1.000 in initial self-publishing costs, and put the power of Amazon’s site and their distribution system behind my book. Q: How do you suggest new authors approach the self-publishing process? A: First, do your homework – there are a growing number of self-publishers and some of them are very good, and some of them are very, very bad! Once you’ve narrowed it down, choose maybe three to five publishers. Sit down and carefully compare their services. Next, get your manuscript in the best pos-

sible shape; most publishers will help you format, but if there are a lot of typos, misspellings and grammatical errors you could end up paying extra for cleaning up something you could have done yourself. Last, be sure to pay attention to and clearly understand the submission requirements for your chosen publisher; this will save you time and money Q: Do self-publishers provide editorial services? A: A basic, mostly cursory editorial service is included in most self-publishing packages, but it will likely be less than what a really good editor would do. Q: Can the author be involved in creative decisions? A: Yes. Some authors leave it all up to the publisher (which will cost more money) and some are directly engaged. My publisher did very little creative; my brother designed the cover, and I chose type style, font size, format of the book, etc. Q: What is the average cost for the author? A: For a basic package with adequate services that will produce “Version 1.0” of your book, you should be prepared to spend $750 – $2,000, depending on benefits. Q: How involved is the publisher post-release? A: This can vary. Most self-publishers will offer posters, business cards, bookmarks, marketing plans, selling seminars, etc., but they are NOT going to get you book signings or interviews, give away promo copies, or distribute your books the way traditional publishers do. My publisher did get me in front of Kirkus, the industry’s best known and most respected book-trade reviewer.

Q: Animus is on Amazon. How does distribution work? A: Animus, indeed, is on Amazon, as well as BookSurge. BookSurge will also accept orders from bookstores, re-sellers, major chains, B&N, B. Dalton, etc., but they will NOT make those connections for the author. The big chains rely almost totally on major distribution companies like Ingram. Ingram has, however, started an on-demand division called Lightning Source; as soon as I finish hooking Animus to Lightning Source, B&N stores nationwide can order my book. And I have, of course, set up accounts with all the local bookstores. They buy directly from me and I order from BookSurge at my (lower) author’s price. Q: What should self-published authors do to get word out? A: Plow your own field. Get yourself into local bookstores and libraries, get the local papers to do a review, get on local talk shows, give away copies to local authors, and join your local author’s guild or book club. Q: Overall, what do you think are the biggest benefits and challenges to self-publishing? A: The biggest benefits are that you keep control – and copyright; you can make more money; you can publish what you want when you want; and you are riding the wave of the future of publishing. The biggest challenges are that you must be organized and have a plan (especially a marketing plan), and you are going to have to sell yourself and your product, which is not something everyone is comfortable doing.

Earthly Delights

By April Gonzales

Venturing into the Tropicals My trips to Florida have born some ripe fruit over the course of this year. Or shall I say a wider plant palette. Tropicals were never a forte of mine. I have used bananas and elephant’s ears, tibouchinas and hibiscus, gardenias and plumbago, just as much as anyone else. But aside from crotons, I really don’t have a good range of tropical foliage that I

am familiar with. After a tropical expo in Ft. Lauderdale and a trip to some palm nurseries on Pine Island, my experiences came in handy. I was asked to fill a red glazed pot with a plant that could tolerate outdoor summer shade and then come in for the winter as an attractive houseplant. It had to complement pink, non-stop begonias with bronze leaves and white caladiums with burgundy polka dots; both gorgeous, dramatic and graphic in their own right. So I hunted through the greenhouses across the East End because what I really needed was a fantastic houseplant, or in other words, something with tropical foliage. I saw some fabulous plant materials that I had been meaning to try, like a ripple edged upright elephant ear that had dark green leaves and another one with a white margin. I passed by the papyrus again because it is so dramatic, but it would not take the lack of sun and it can be a little tricky indoors if the ceilings aren’t high enough. I thought about palms, but they are too frondy and then I thought, deep red dracaenas, but they are too common. Finally, I landed on

Phormiums, the perfect vertical accent. A big pot of variegated mother-in-law’s tongue stopped me for a minute. They were the right shape. This led to a new idea: Phormium Flamingo would have been perfect. Their vertical swordlike leaves have pink, cream and burgundy accents. They look great in planters or by themselves. But, the plant proved elusive late in the season. Pam, at Lynch’s Garden Center in Southampton, did the usual magic she is known for, and instantly thought of stromanthes. The leaves are long, strappy ovals that are pink, cream and green on top and burgundy on the bottom. I must be honest and say that I had no idea what she was talking about when she ordered them. However, I was delighted to find that when the stromanthes arrived, they were the exact same plant that I had admired so many times down south. What to Do Right Now: Enjoy the fruits of your labor in the veggie garden, but start to reseed the super sugar snap peas, spinaches and some new lettuces that can begin to sprout with the cooler weather ahead. 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.

House/ home It’s Your Tang: Tips on Ancient Chinese Treasures By Mary Beth Karoll Among other ancient civilizations, the Chinese might beg to differ with the old adage, “You can’t take it with you.” During the prosperous Tang dynasty (618 – 907 A.D.), the elite furnished their graves to insure a most comfortable afterlife with little alteration in lavish earthly lifestyle and activities. In the hereafter, you could exist in heavenly bliss, bedecked with precious jewels and entertained by troops of dancing girls. Worldly amenities buried along with the dead included a retinue of clay models of servants, animals, and guardian earth spirits.

Chief among these sculptures are the famous Tang Horses, magnificent examples of the era’s splendor. Ranging from the miniature to the massive, these mortuary objects served as status symbols, the bigger the better. Nowadays, it’s not exactly true, despite rumors, that each high-style interior spread in every issue of Architectural Digest contains at least one Tang Horse. Still, a Tang Horse remains a highly coveted decorative item, with the rarest, most distinctive ceramics highly sought-after by collectors.

immortals.” As the Tang Dynasty was truly the golden age of the horse, the artisans’ love of the animal can be seen in the lowliest to the finest Tang Horses. Heads held high or turned, mouths open, nostrils flaring, prancing or standing still, the variety of stances is as wide as the attitudes and individuality of live horses. While quite stylized, the best Tang Horses display animation, and the musculature is typical of animals bred at the time. In their noble bearing, Tang Horses are truly symbols of power and prestige, and the finest capture the spirit of the period. Fashioned in standardized molds, Tang Horses were actually mass-produced but exceptionally high-quality. Details such as intricately styled manes and decorations on the saddles were added by hand. Elaborate trappings including saddles, saddle pads, bridles, stirrups and other ornaments reflect how horses were outfitted in that era, while the status of the deceased can be inferred from the type and degree of adornment. Although sometimes left entirely unglazed, the classic Tang Horse often displays the innovative Sancai glaze or three-color lead glaze in a brilliant palette of amber, green and straw. Touches of blue and turquoise add to the value of a tri-color piece. Typically, these fluid, vibrant glazes were allowed to run during firing, and sometimes small parts of the figure remain unglazed. Some of these ceramics were more subtly colored, perhaps in cream with a few amber-brown markings. Unusual coloration such as strawberry roan or darker tones such as chocolate brown and black, add value. Tang pottery artifacts were also left unglazed and then painted. If you make a major purchase of a pricy Tang

Horse, look for one that comes with a certificate of authenticity or an Oxford certificate. This means that a thermoluminescence test has been done with tiny samples taken from the piece. The results will show when the ceramic was last fired in a kiln and thus certify its date. However, if a genuine antiquity is not in your budget, you might be very pleased with a reproduction Tang Horse, as many are quite well made. Cobalt blue is a very desirable color and is among the glazes perfected by the talented potters of the Tang Dynasty. As actual examples are hard to find, perhaps a truly lovely, feisty and charismatic bright blue Tang Horse available from might suffice until your decorator sources an original!

The Tang Dynasty had a strong equestrian tradition. Like today’s Hamptons horsy set, the Tang enjoyed dressage and polo, a sport played by both men and the liberated women of that era. Hunting and battle were other activities performed on horseback, and the horse in its military role was necessary for the expansion of the Chinese Empire. Viewed as spirit guides by the Chinese, horses had pride of place in the tombs of government officials, rulers, and nobility. Associated in tradition as a descendant of dragons, horses were seen as supernatural creatures that could carry a rider to the “home of the

By Susan Galardi

The United Colors of the Next Generation If you believe the in the power of thought to create reality, most recently championed by the book/DVD “The Secret,” then you might see the Benetton ads of the ‘80s as integral in creating the current trend in families, where children from all over the globe frolic (and look gorgeous) together. For decades, the Benetton ads, and more recently GAP ads, have put “into the universe” strong, happy images of children of all ethnicities happy together. Who knows? Maybe marketing execs at those companies had a plan to fill our collective unconscious with thoughts of racial/social harmony through the most sympathetic characters: children. There is also the adage that out of adversity comes opportunity. If you adhere to that, then you might agree that, as incidents of infertility rise (for reasons ranging from women in their 30s and 40s trying to get pregnant, to stress-induced reproductive issues), then the option of adoption, international and domestic, is a natural, positive outgrowth of an often heartbreaking situation. Theories aside, the results are fantastic. Instead of trying to decipher it, you can simply do a mental reality check, as I did recently, and marvel at the truly global society that our children, and we, live in. Here’s a list of some of our son’s friends, classmates and erstwhile buddies. A seven-year-old boy adopted at the age of four from Siberia. A three year old boy adopted at 18 months from Khazikstan. An eight and nine year old sister and brother, adopted as infants from Cambodia. A ten year old girl, adopted as a toddler from China. A seven year old African American boy adopted domestically as an infant by a single, Caucasian dad. Of the adopted children our son knows, most are from countries outside the U.S.

According to something called the “Population Reference Bureau,” the United States adopts more children from abroad than any other country. It reads, “The number of foreign children adopted by U.S. parents has increased sharply, and nearly doubled during the 1990s ... And because many adopted children come from a different racial or ethnic background than their American parents, they contribute to the blurring of racial and ethnic boundaries.” The site offers another reason for the trend: “the dwindling supply of adoptable children within the United States [because of] … increased access to

contraception, the availability of legal abortion, decreases in the teen birth rate, and reduced social stigma surrounding unmarried parenting.” As a result, it concludes that there are fewer U.S.-born children available for adoption. In many ways, that is good news. Fewer unwanted children in any country is a great development. It motivates people to look beyond their own citizenship in order to have a family. And it kind of blows away the theory that people have children for ego-gratification. If you’re traveling to Siberia in the dead of winter to adopt a child at a tremendous cost, the need to be a parent is clearly trumping the need to further your own gene pool. Yet despite the cost of foreign adoption, it is still preferred by many future parents of America. Not to mention, according to the PBD, “adopting within the United States is legally complicated, slow, and costly.” Statistics from 2002 show that 25% of foreign adoptions are from Russia; 25% from China, 25% from “other.” The kids, at this age, don’t care. As an adult, I find the developments amazing, “loaded,” heartwarming. It’s particularly profound now, with China and Russia very much in the news these days for good and bad. The categorical prejudice of past generations toward entire cultures and countries becomes virtually impossible when you’re holding a child from that country in your own arms.

blind companion safe and seem to be a wonderful alternative for blind horse lovers, those who are allergic to dogs, and those who want a guide animal with a longer lifespan. Many people who are afraid of dogs are often comfortable having a miniature horse to assist them. They are also strong enough to provide support for people with physical disabilities by helping them to rise from a chair or bed. Reports show that the Guide Horses demonstrate excellent judgment; like choosing a ramp instead of stairs, and are not easily distracted by crowds and people. Here’s

something I bet you didn’t know. Guide Horses are very clean and can actually be house broken! In a study, conducted by the Pine Street Foundation, a cancer research organization in California, compelling evidence showed that cancers hidden beneath the skin can be detected by dogs sniffing the odors of a person’s breath. According to the foundation, dogs with only a few weeks of basic training learned how to accurately distinguish between breath samples of lung- and breast-cancer patients and healthy subjects. Previous studies have confirmed the ability of trained dogs to detect skin-cancer melanomas by sniffing skin lesions. Nicholas Broffman, executive director of the Pine Street Foundation, states that lung and breast cancer patients are known to exhale patterns of biochemical markers in their breath. Cancer cells, he goes on to explain, emit different metabolic waste products than normal cells, which can be detected by a dog’s keen sense of smell, even in the early stages of disease. Helping Hands: Monkey Helpers for the Disabled is a national nonprofit organization that provides highly trained monkeys to assist quadriplegic and other people with severe spinal cord injuries, with daily activities. The monkeys are raised and trained to act as live-in companions who will provide the gifts of independence, companionship, dignity and hope to the people they help. The monkeys are trained to respond to a laser pointer and can pick up objects from the floor that would normally stay there until help arrived. They can open a refrigerator, retrieve a bottle of water, open the cap, insert a straw into the bottle, and put the bottle into its holder on the handicapped person’s chair. They turn lights on and off, bring the telephone and remote for the TV, and do other tasks that would otherwise not be possible in the daily lives of people who can’t, including putting in a CD or DVD, flipping pages in a book or magazine, scratching itches, and even warming up food in the microwave. These wonderful loving animals are not only companions but they are the caregivers as well. They never cease to amaze me and have earned my utmost respect. Questions? thoughts? email

Those who know me well know that I can say with all honesty, “I never met a dog I didn’t like.” I admire each and every one of them from the family pet to the search-and-rescue dogs, as well as those who assist the physically disabled and bring a well being to the emotionally challenged. I want to give the deserved recognition to them as well as some of the other animals that not only bring us joy and companionship, but also do remarkable jobs to benefit and enhance our lives. It has been shown that people who own cats are less likely to die from a heart attack and other cardiovascular diseases. The study examined data from 4,435 people, ranging in age from 30 to 75, participating in ongoing research with the National and Nutritional Examination Study conducted over a 20year period. It’s also been found that cat owners benefit from reduced levels of depression and stress. The cat’s relaxed nature and soothing purring, like a mantra, segues into a tranquil coexistence for both. “Dogs come when they’re called; cats take a message and get back to you later.” In 1999, an experimental program, called The Guide Horse Foundation, was started with the purpose of training miniature horses to assist visually impaired people. There is a critical shortage of guide animals and Guide Horses have shown great promise. They perform exceptionally well at keeping their

Life S tyle Raving Beauty


By Janet Flora

Quaint, and Effective, Beauty Tips from Granny watch her paint her nails. Sometimes she even left the moons of her nails unpolished and she would balance her pinkie on the vanity top for precision and accuracy. When my grandmother removed that polish, she went into the kitchen where she kept the rest of her beauty products. The red polish, which she constantly wore, had the unwelcomed effect of yellowing her nails. So, she would soak them in lemon juice. And if they were still yellow, she’d add a bit of bleach so that they’d return to a fleshy tone of a pale, healthy pink. Afterward,

she’d mix herself a glass of Knox Gelatin, because she said that it helps strengthens nails. When she made sauce on Sundays, after finishing with garlic and onions, she’d squeeze a lemon over her fingertips to neutralize the odor. Then, she’d chew on a fresh twig of parsley, because it freshened her breath after tasting all of that sauce. And by the end of a long day, she’d pour half a bottle of milk into a bath and then soak, because she said it softened and moisturized her skin. After bathing, she’d pat on some baby oil mixed with rosewater, making her smell so good.

By Janet Flora I remember when the only two beauty potions on my grandmother’s dressing table were cold cream and Vaseline. I can’t recall the last time I saw a jar of cold cream, but I do know it was (and may still be) used for removing makeup and softening skin. This got me thinking about how my grandmother stayed so soft and looked so good before the days of alpha hydroxy, La Mer, and hair products that promise remarkable (even if costly) results. My grandmother only washed with Dove soap. She said that the advertisement was true: A bar of Dove has one quarter cup of cleansing cream. Then she would slather her face with cold cream, of which had seemed about an inch thick. By the time she went to bed her skin just seemed to have a soft sheen that we of today might call dewy. I can still remember her sitting in front of her vanity mirror, the one with the three panels, brushing her hair as I would sit on the bed and watch her. I think this is how I learned to count to 100, as grandma said for healthy shiny hair and to get the natural oils from the scalp to the ends; 100 strokes was the magic number. When it came to washing her hair, she used only baby shampoo and said that other brands were full of detergent. Each morning she would put Vaseline on her lips and her eyelashes. It was better than using ChapStick and she said it kept her lashes thick and soft. Something we might want to try before going for a swim. Vaseline will make anybody’s lashes look darker and the water will bead up on your lashes and might stay better than waterproof mascara. Grandma never indulged herself with professional manicures or pedicures, but when the skin on her hands and feet got dry and calloused she’d use a thick layer of Vaseline on the soles of her feet and the palms of her hands, then put on a pair of white socks or white cotton gloves. Inside one of the vanity drawers was a product she couldn’t resist: red nail polish. There, lined up like soldiers, were Revlon’s three bestselling reds: Fire and Ice, Fifth Avenue Red and Cherries in the Snow. I can’t tell you that I was able to tell the difference between these three reds, but I loved to

The Color Purple – the New Black, Really scarves and jewelry can really add a subtle touch for those of you who may only want a splash of color. A few hot picks to consider include; Loro Piana (cashmere stola with a fringe, available in grape-priced at $595), Dolce & Gabbana (Raquel convertible shopper, available in violet-priced at $945), Kokin Collections (upsweep ombre hat, available in purple-priced at $245), Emilio Pucci (cosmo rainboot, priced at $175) and Jimmy Choo (Mary Jane leather round toepriced at $760.)

The bottom line is, you can’t go wrong this season wearing purple. Remember, purple was a favorite color of Cleopatra, is worn by royalty to distinct high rankings and purple hearts are given to honor soldiers who are wounded during war. This year’s Oscar post-party was hosted by no other than Mr. “Purple Rain” himself, Prince (singer/songwriter) required that all guests wear the color purple including the likes of; John Travolta, Johnny Depp and George Clooney. He even went as far as serving purple drinks and hors derves. Now that’s a true lover of purple! Questions or thoughts? Email

Every shade of purple is in this fall. Hues of lavender, plum, eggplant, orchid, violet and regal purple have been a strong part of many collections. From shoes and handbags to scarves and leather accessories, purple is the way to go. Wearing purple from head to toe might be pushing it, but layering several shades and accessorizing an outfit offers a powerful statement. Purple signifies magic, mystery and royalty. It is a color that evokes a sense of peace and spirituality. Purple is also widely used for meditation purposes and is believed to bring out our creative and imaginative side. Each year Pantone releases the top ten hot colors for the fashion industry to follow. It was no surprise that this year’s New York Fall Fashion Week displayed and array of purple shades as well as a few others including; blue iris (with an undertone of purple), caribbean blue, royal lilac, twilight blue, shady glade, aurora red, withered rose, burnt orange, ochre and shitake.

Oscar De La Renta, Donna Karan (DKNY), Diane Von Furstenberg and Prada have made use of the popular color in their 2008 collections. Prada has always incorporated purple in to their collections and this year is no different. Check out the purple suede shoe booties (priced at $595), purple suede pumps (priced at $595), Tessuto P clutch (priced at $640 available in violet or gray) or Prada’s Vitello Daino tote (priced at $1,095 – available in gunmetal or violet.) One of my favorite items in this year’s Prada collection is a Faux Croc zip front jacket (with a double zipper exposure, ruched waist, elastic cuffs and side slash zipper pockets- priced at $1,295.) If you just want to add a splash of color pair Prada’s ribbed Lana Coste purple tights (priced at $155) with a rib mock turtleneck sweater (in black -priced at $496) and pucker pencil skirt (also in black – priced at $525.) There are so many ways to create that “Purple Haze” look you want to achieve. Try adding a purple accessory to a black ensemble. Purple belts, pumps,

Riding in the Wake

Photos by Jaime Felber

By Jaime Felber “Zach here can land a back flip…at 3:30 a.m.…when the unicorns and flying pigs are out.” “Yeah, and I do it on a solid gold wakeboard!” So goes the gregarious, good-natured teasing between boat captain Roger Kunsmuller and wakeboard camper Zach Zimmerman. It’s the end of the day, and the guys from The Riders Wakeboarding, a subsidiary of Bridgehampton’s Art Farm have graciously taken us out for a quick demonstration and lesson in the art of wakeboarding. Wakeboarding is a very simple concept. You have a board strapped to your feet, and when the rope, which is tied to the end of the boat, gets taut, you stand up and ride behind it, maneuvering your board back and forth. Simple? No. Like everything with a straightforward premise, wakeboarding is, for lack of a better

word, mind-boggling. At 22, I was proud at being able just to stand up. It didn’t help my ego that the 12- and 13-year-old kids who went before me were pulling 360s and attempting backflips with the ease and grace of a fish attached to a wakeboard. “I wakeboard all year long. I come to this camp in the summer, and work with a coach during the winter back at home in Florida. I’ve entered a few competitions, and hope to go pro soon,” Zimmerman explains as we watch DK (who is featured on the front page of, his wakeboarding camp buddy attempt another flip off the back of the boat. It’s clear from watching the interaction between campers and instructors that a summer with the Riders is a summer well spent. While we got a taste for wakeboarding, the camp also caters to other water sports, including water skiing, wake surfing, knee boarding and surfing. The riders operate at a host of different locations, but the majority of boat activities take place off Long Beach in Sag Harbor, while the surfing days vary between Ditch Plains beach in Montauk and local beaches in Sagaponack. Children of all ages are welcome – 7-year-old boys and girls, nicknamed Junior Riders, get to experience the thrills of water sports in a safe environment. Small class size means that by the time they graduate to being fully fledged “Riders,” they will have mastered the basics of wakeboarding, as well as gaining an understand-

ing of the ocean. Not only does the camp offer days out on the boat, but campers are also taken on trips such as swimming with sharks, deep-sea fishing and visits to skate parks. Rainy days don’t hold them back either – movies, bowling or indoor sports at the camp base are lined up to keep both kids and counselors entertained. Along with half day and full day sessions at camp, the Riders also offer private one-hour sessions at $220/hour. “Many other water sport companies around won’t go out on the water for anything less than two hour bookings, but we try to introduce as many people as possible to the sport. Also, it’s a great day out, and, with a few friends, doesn’t cost too much,” said professionally sponsored wake surfer Jeff Schulich. All these activities, as cool as they are to many of the campers, pale in comparison to the passion with which DK and Zimmerman talk about wakeboarding. “I love it. I’ve been doing it for three years now.

It’s great. My dream is to go pro and get sponsored,” enthuses DK, as he climbs back into the boat. “It’s great to see how some of these kids progress from year to year. Even over the course of the summer some of the campers make huge progress in the sports. We do what we can to help them along the way, from correcting basic technique, to helping them perfect their latest tricks,” added Schulich. While Schulich’s encouragement towards my wakeboarding attempts on the water were well appreciated, they lacked a certain grace and elegance that came so naturally to the kids sharing the boat with me.

Go Fish


By Rich Firstenberg

Surf Fishing Hot; Fluke Season Ends Sept. 1 Horton Point with eels and there are plenty of snappers and bluefish in the bays. Scott at East End Bait & Tackle of Hampton Bays reports the fluke bite is still good but has moved into deeper ocean waters. Keeper-size fluke (20.5 inches and up) are in the 80-foot ocean depths east of the “Castle” and east of Mecox Bay. They are biting on spearing-andsquid combination bait. One customer had a surprise while fluke fishing – he hooked about a 200-pound thresher shark in the ocean at an 80-foot depth. The shark made one spectacular jump and broke away. Another East End client, while fluking a few miles off the beach, boated a 50-pound bluefin tuna. The Shinnecock Marlin and Tuna Club’s benefit Hamptons Offshore Invitational Tournament ends this Sunday. All monies raised go to Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Long Island. East End Bait & Tackle (631-7281744) is sponsoring a raffle for four custom stand-up offshore fishing rods (two Penn 50s and two Penn 70s). Tickets are $50 each (limited to 150) and all proceeds go to Big Brothers and Big Sisters. With anglers here often catching undersize fish, we want to keep the fisheries going so it is important to know how to release fish so they will survive. The mortality rate of these fish is now very high. We recommend using circle hooks which normally embed themselves in a fish’s upper mouth rather than in its lower mouth and gut. Metal jigs should also have circle hooks. Flatten the barbs on treble hooks on plugs. Handling of the fish should be done with a rubberized mesh net and a rubberized glove. Try to hold the fish from the top while it is close to the boat and remove the hook. It is always best to try and keep the fish in the water. More information on this is in the July/August 2008 issue of Sport Fishing magazine. Send your questions and fishing stories to me at

Fishing in designated areas, surfcasters had a ball this past week catching striped bass and bluefish in the ocean from the south side of Montauk Point west to Amagansett. The catch was particularly good from Indian Wells Beach to White Sands Beach in the early morning and at sunset, according to Harvey Bennett of Amagansett’s Tackle Shop. In Montauk, Paulie’s Tackle Shop weighed in a 48-pound striper caught by Vincent Ricciardelli in the ocean surf. Montauk party boat anglers have been catching loads of fluke. John Manigino, fishing on the Lazy Bones, reeled in a 14-pound fluke, Joe Leucata had a 10-pound fluke on a Viking ship, and Bart Gunjoong caught a 13.7-pound fluke on the Marlin Princess. Barbara Buononato caught a 6.5-pound fluke and Maureen Schweda had a 4.5-pound fluke, both fishing with the Viking fleet. Offshore fishing boats, trolling in at least 350 of water and heading towards the Dip, caught yellowfin tuna of up to 47 pounds. They reported seeing many blue marlin freejumping in the same area. Other boats saw blue marlin leaping out of the water at 2200 to 2900-foot depths. Ken Morse of Tight Lines Tackle, Sag Harbor, says there are still fluke around the Ruins off Gardiner’s Island and ocean fluking is good east of Shinnecock inlet in 60- to 80foot depths. Linda of Jamesport Bait & Tackle tells us striped bass are being caught at

A Rant on the SUV, Lotus, and Wagon Master America really needs is a Chrysler Minivan Lite. All of the big stuff blocking America’s arteries should be given a large dose of industrial Lipitor. If we lighten up all vehicles, not only minivans and SUVs, we can then power them with smaller engines that will get better fuel mileage. Speaking of Lotus, the current Lotus offering here in America is the Elise sports car. This vehicle has a highly creative and radical bonded aluminum frame that makes this featherweight car tip the scales at only 2,000 pounds. Powered by a very small four-cylinder Toyota engine of 190 horsepower, this diminutive lightweight is as fast as a heavier 400 horsepower Corvette. One of the minivans I was stuck behind in traffic was a Honda Odyssey, which as vans go, is one of the best. Desperately wanting to see over the thing, I thought to myself how cool it would be to chop and channel that tall wall of China, er, Japan, with a tailgate. To those of you out there who are not familiar with the expression, “to chop and channel a car”, which means to take a lengthwise section out of the entire bottom and top of the vehicle and make it look lower. This radical surgery was quite commonly done with hot rods of the 50s. They were also nosed and decked with frenched head and taillights, but that’s a whole other story. However, imagine chopping and channeling all of the overly large SUVs and minivans in the world. Holy cow, do you know what would happen? They would turn into station wagons! Until the advent of the minivan, station wagons were always the vehicles of choice for the family truckEvie Salomon

Recently I was stuck in traffic in my Mini, surrounded by a wall of minivans and SUVs and I thought to myself, “what a wall of waste.” I was doing a slow burn because since the advent of these types of vehicles, my driving enjoyment has been slightly diminished. These vehicles literally block the view of any driver who is in a normal sized car, let alone a Mini. Also, these overweight, oversized pieces of sheet metal are one of the main reasons America is dependent on importing so much fuel oil. It may sound radical, but I would bet that if all minivans and SUVs were banished from the highways of America, there would probably be no more fuel crisis and prices would go down. Now, before all you van and SUV drivers out there start sending me hate e-mails, let me explain that I really like the idea of the SUV and minivan craze, I just don’t like the design concepts behind them. I understand that a lot of families need a large familysized vehicle and the SUV has gobs of macho appeal as a go-anywhere truckette. The problem is that over the last decade, all these vehicles have gotten heavier, wider, taller and yes, considerably more expensive and luxurious. As you owners know, at today’s gas prices, vehicles are quite expensive to run; the average full size SUV or van gets about 12 mpg in the city and, if you’re lucky, maybe 20 mpg on the highway. The late Collin Chapman was the creator of the Lotus Automobile Company and one of the most prolific racecar designers of the 20th century. His most famous quote about his car designs was, “add lightness.” Designing lightweight racecars made his faster than other racecars of the era. As an added bonus, it also gave them better fuel consumption. What

ster. I personally have a warm spot in my heart for the old wooden station wagons of the ‘50s. In fact, I used to collect them and owned several. They reminded me both inside and out, of beautiful yachts. Ford called itself the “Wagon Master” and built and sold most of the popular “Woodies” of the era. Every American manufacturer built them, and when they went from real wood to plastic faux wood, it was a sad day. However, even the phony wood wagons had the right “look” and they are becoming quite collectible. I definitely believe that there will be a resurgence of station wagon popularity. Now, if only somebody would build one with real wood sides. Actually, removing a lot of extraneous metal from these fatty minivans and SUVs could make them lighter. Like the Lotus sports car design, there are also many alternate ways to design lighter major automotive components out of aluminum and plastic. The primary way to make a car more fuel-efficient is to make it lighter and smaller. There are quite a few minivans, like the French Renault Espace, which is produced everywhere in the world but here. They get excellent fuel mileage. Of course they are lighter and just a little smaller than those sold here. Also, virtually every large SUV that is marketed here and sold overseas has an option of a diesel engine. In England, where fuel is almost $10.00 per gallon, very few buyers opt for a Range Rovers with a big V-8 gas engine. Obviously, the only place gasoline-powered Range Rovers and Mercedes Glendewagons are huge sellers is in Dubai. Good advice for everybody, lighten up.

Pick a Peck o’ Pesticide-Free Food

Maire Vaccarello

regarding the long-term effects of low-dose pesticide exposure.” The entry on “Pesticide” goes on to describe “data gaps” and “inadequate surveillance systems” related to studies on pesticides. Need I say more? Health dangers associated with pesticide run the radar from skin and eye irritation to nerve system damage and cancer. Government agencies worldwide estimate that over 3 million agricultural workers are severely poisoned by exposure to pesticides each year, and thousands of those workers actually die. Let’s face facts: pesticides were designed to KILL. The longer you are exposed to pesticides and the more you consume, the higher the risk of health problems. The key is to keep the dose down. We have to consciously minimize the amounts of pesticides we take into our system. How to do that? Buy organic produce, organic defined as food grown without the use of pesticides. Yes, they may put a bigger dent in your wallet than the toxic varieties, but we’re willing to splurge on $7 ice cream cones and $15 specialty martinis, so let’s put things into perspective. Layne Lieberman, a food and nutrition consultant, who lives in Quogue part time, has some helpful hints. “The best advice is to eat plenty of and a variety of fruits and vegetables in season, wash all produce and choose organic when possible,” he explains. “Which produce have the highest pesticide load? Peaches have

the highest.“ Here is his list of items you may want to choose organic, listed from highest pesticide load to slightly lower loads: peaches, apples, bell peppers, celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, lettuce, imported grapes, pears, spinach, potatoes, carrots and green beans. Some of the least offensive produce, those having lower loads of pesticides, include onions (which are the lowest), avocados, pineapples, bananas, cabbage, broccoli, eggplant, blueberries, and watermelon. Take advantage of the organic fruit and vegetable farms we have on the East End. Some noteworthy picks include Sang Lee Farms on Route 48 in Peconic, Golden Earthworm on Peconic Bay Blvd. in Jamesport, and Green Thumb Organic Farm on Montauk Highway in Water Mill. They are all certified organic farms and each offer a unique variety of greens, fruits, herbs, and other seasonal produce. If you can’t buy organic for whatever reason, you can purchase a fruit and vegetable wash that supposedly rids the surface of pesticide residue. Lieberman says it’s not necessary to spend money on special washes and suggests soaking your produce in a blend of half vinegar, half water for 5 – 10 minutes. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather take precautions now than gamble with uncertain futures. For all we know, 20 years from now we may all be walking around looking like creatures from a science fiction movie - glowing, lumpy, limping, and grunting. No thanks.

By Maria Orlando Pietromonaco Ideally we should all be cultivating our own fruit and vegetable gardens during the summer months, growing tomatoes, zucchini, and strawberries. And naturally, we should be doing this in our spare time, but that would mean giving up beach time, relaxation time, and leisure time. This is not happening for most of us. Eating organic food has become a focus in recent years. Most of us are aware that pesticides are probably a health hazard, but I’m sure most people don’t know exactly why. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. The EPA, FDA, USDA and other government agencies and medical organizations aren’t sure themselves exactly how dangerous pesticides are. Although the ambiguity surrounding the potential dangers of pesticide consumption comes from inconclusive studies and deficiency of research, the reality has an uncertain future simply because not enough time has passed to know the true consequences. Not only are there so many different types of pesticides in use, but the real question becomes our tolerance level and toxicity level of the various pesticides. Simply put, how much can we take before we get sick? Some history: pesticides date back to 2500 BC. In the 15th century, farmers used arsenic, mercury and lead to kill off the little buggers. It took them a while to find out that this wasn’t a good idea. In the 1960s, we moved on tp DDT. Some time passed before that caution light went off as well, and DDT is now banned in 86 countries. This comes straight out of Wikipedia: “The American Medical Association recommends limiting exposure to pesticides…Particular uncertainty exists

Get Polo Fit and arms, and keep aware of any strain you feel in your back. It’s not exactly like shoveling cannon balls, but the repetition of this exercise over six stalls can lead to a weary back if done incorrectly. With all these benefits, polo stands as an outstanding sport to keep you in shape for the summer. Sure there’s a possibility you will get hit in the head with a mallet, or fall of the horse, but what is life without a little risk? Even if you’re not about to pick up a mallet, just riding on a horse for an hour can offer you relaxation, exhilaration, and a better view of life. Questions or thoughts? Email

Victoria Cooper

How do you get toned thighs and adductors, a tight stomach, and a fit bum? Ride a horse up and down a polo field for two straight hours, that’s how. Horseback riding in general is a fantastic lower-body work out. Posting keeps your quadriceps and gluteus working as you trot down the pitch, but try hauling ass at 30 miles per hour, leaning fully extended swinging a mallet at the same time, it is one hell of a total body workout. The proper position while riding requires a strong core. If you’ve ever taken a turn a little too tightly whiled driving a car, you have felt your stomach tense up in an attempt to keep you in your seat, try a sharp turn while sitting on top of a horse, without the comfort of a formfitting leather bucket seat. Keeping on a horse requires a great deal strength. Your abdominal muscles stay at a constant state of stimulation, as your adductors cling to the girth of your horse. As a rider, your balance is constantly being compromised while the horse turns, stops, rears up, and runs. The more you ride, the more your body will be aware of these movements, and the faster it will trigger reactionary measures to keep you on the horse. After your first day in the saddle you will fell aching in muscles you didn’t even know existed. These are called the sartorial muscles, which run from the hip to the inner tibia and are the longest muscles in your body. Even though the horse is the one that is doing all the running, an hour riding can burn the same amount of calories as a half-hour jog. Now add the upper body movements. Though your left arm stays rather stationary compared to your right, the constant control of the horse, and maintaining proper position creates a combination of isometric and anaerobic exercise for the left arm. The right arm, the one swinging the mallet, on the other hand, gets an intense workout and stretch. On a near side forehand shot the deltoids and biceps get the brunt of the workout, but as soon as you start making neck shots you start incorporating your chest muscles across your body and the body of the running horse. On other levels, polo increases you eye hand coordination. Hitting a croquet ball from a standstill isn’t exactly difficult, but extend the mallet’s shaft, shrink the size of the head, climb six feet atop a horse, and try to hit it while in motion. The difficulty, in the beginning, will be obvious, but as you progress, your ability to make contact, and eventually control the direction of the ball, while controlling the horse, will reap benefits in other activities, such as tennis and golf, where movement and ball contact are crucial. In an intense match, your heart rate will spike as your adrenal glands kick in, which may sound like a bad thing, but tests have proven that people who momentarily push their hearts to higher rates for short periods stand a better chance of surviving a heart attack. From a psychological aspect, playing on a team leads to a better understanding of one’s self. You concentrate on the overall picture and no so much on the individual. Friendships arise, camaraderie’s are founded, and the general happiness levels are higher than non-athletic persons. At the same time, while your teamwork skills will improve, as you progress in your learning process, many find a boost in self-confidence which resonates to other aspects of your life; your job, your family, etc. If you want to further your workout, muck your own stalls. Sure you can hire someone to heave the manure and old straw from the floors, but this is a great opportunity to work out the lower back, legs, and arms. Grab the heaviest pitchfork you can find and go to town, heaving horse chestnuts into a wheelbarrow. Use the right form, bend at the knees, lift with the legs

Dr. Paul Kelly of Peconic Facial Plastic Surgery specializes in state of the art cosmetic procedures that can make you look up to 10 years younger. Certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Dr. PAUL KELLY MD, FACS Board of Otolaryngology, he is the East End’s undiscovered jewel. He obtained his doctorate from Tulane University and after comleting his residency finished his fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. A complimentary pre-surgical consultation is all inclusive and begins with the simple question of what it is that you want to improve about your appearance. Once this is established, Dr. Kelly will explain the step by step details of the procedures and options available to address your concerns. Options may range from a low down time choice like the Obagi skin routine followed by an acid peel, to more involved options such as an endoscopic brow lift or facelift operation. Computer imaging is available. Dr. Kelly can take your picture and create computer generated “photos” to view surgical goals. You will be assured that you are getting the “natural look” you want…so you can feel confident that the results expected will be the results obtained. Many anesthesia options are available and Dr. Kelly will help you decide which is best for you. Regardless, he utilizes a gentle touch technique in combination with microscope assisted suture removal and small 24 hour nasal pads after nose surgery. Patient discomfort is usually minimal for most procedures and many patients do not even require the use of pain medication. Depending on the procedure, the return to your normal routine can be anywhere from 1-7 days.

DAN'S PAPERS, August 22, 2008 Page 120


PROCTECT OUR WATER Many Long Islanders walk around everyday not realizing that their drinking water comes from the ground directly beneath them. Each and every daily activity we undertake has the potential to positively or adversely affect the water we consume. Squandering this precious resource has the potential to draw down the aquifers along coastal areas causing salt-water intrusion, leading to loss of fresh water wetlands, and even changing the environment of our tidal lands. Over-development of critical lands has the potential to reduce the recharge of our aquifers while surface contaminants and pollutants from over-development can directly pollute our aquifers. It is critical that we Long Islanders continue to take steps to protect our drinking water for future generations. Some unsung Long Islanders are already vigilantly but inconspicuously protecting our drinking water. The Suffolk County Water Authority, The Long Island Pine Barrens Society, The Nature Conservancy and The Long Island Neighborhood Network have joined together to create The First Annual Source Water Protection Awards. This annual award aims to recognize these unnoticed individuals, groups, businesses, educational and research institutions, and governments actively working to ensure the quality of our drinking water for current and future generations. Awards in four categories will accredit those aim-

ing to achieve water protection and conservation: 1.Individual Source Water Protection Achievement 2.Organizational Source Water Protection Achievement 3.Educational and Research Source Water Protection Award 4.Government Source Water Protection Award You can find more information on the award at our website, as well as the nomination form, and information explaining the types of activities that would qualify for an award. We encourage you to nominate anyone who you believe makes an effort to protect our sources of our drinking water. We look forward to hearing from you. The deadline to submit nomination forms is August 29, 2008. For additional information, please visit the Suffolk County Water Authority website, . Thank you, Stephen M. Jones Chief Executive Officer Suffolk County Water Authority Southampton Via e-mail I’ll drink to that. – DR JOHN HANCOCK Dear Dan, Per my request, I received a copy of your book “In the Hamptons” for my birthday. My mom gave it to me and as I was unwrapping it she said “It’s autographed!” I was so excited! I looked inside the front cover and to my dismay there was only a crisp one hundred dollar bill. Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate the cash (thanks Mom!), but I was really disappointed that it was not signed by you... Will you sign it for me? I’ll bring you Mallomars. Maria Cicio Administrator Hamptons Realty Group Sag Harbor Division Via e-mail It’ll cost you $100. Just kidding. Call me. – DR COLUMN-HAPPY Dear Dan, I have been a long time fan of Dan’s Papers for some time now. My favorite column is Twenty

Something by DLR. I have resided on eastern Long Island for my whole life and grew a love for the outdoors. Matt Benham Via e-mail That’s my boy! – DR PUPPY PROBLEMS Dear Dan, Dear Jenna, Re: Jenna Robbins Article “Jana Kohl’s Mission: Shut Down the Puppy Mills.” I was very touched by the article. It is horrific to think that this can happen in this day in age. If I have one goal during my life it is to shutdown these types of puppy mills, but I have no idea how to go about doing this. I am looking for suggestions. I cannot believe that some impact on this industry has not been made up to this point. I would love to speak with someone further to try and help stop these types of puppy mills from being able to exist. I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Marilyn Rose Via e-mail I don’t know either. Damn those puppy mills. – DR WILD TIMES Dear Dan, I was extremely disappointed about the article entitled Wild Animals Back! in the July 11, 2008 edition of Dan’s Papers. With what most well educated and informed people already know about our inherent connection to the intelligent animal world and our global responsibilities towards conservation and humanity, it saddens me to detect such pompousness from that article. Perhaps this should be the call to Dan’s Paper’s; better serving (e.g., educating and informing) the East End community. Besides, what better way to teach our children (and parents) about “wild animals” than to have the privilege to watch and observe, and read and write about them in the wild? Sincerely, Paree Hecht Mattituck, NY Via e-mail

Police Blotter Plover Trouble If you are related to somebody who drives an ATV through a piping plover nest, you are in big trouble in East Hampton. The two sons of a homeowner in East Hampton were spotted driving their ATVs through a plover nest. Police tracked down the ATVs and the owner’s father deliberately locked them up to prevent police from impounding them. Police went to arrest the man, but they could not locate him. You should never become a fugitive over something like this. * * * Punched In The Face A man in Montauk was arrested for harassment in the second degree after he punched another guy in the face at a bar. * * * Lost Bag A man in East Hampton reported to police that his bag was stolen. He then saw the vehicle of the person who stole his bag and followed it, then reported the location of the vehicle to police. Police

went to track down the vehicle and the suspect, but the man’s son later found his bag sitting beside a bed in the guest room of his home. The man, feeling like an idiot, called police to let them know. The “suspect” was not too happy about any of this. * * * Mountain Bike A woman in Quogue reported to police that a mountain bike had been stolen from her house. Police are not going to search any of the surrounding mountains in the area for the bike. * * * Drive Safely There have been some tragic accidents in the Hamptons. This is a reminder to everyone to be as safe as possible while driving in this area, which is a little less country, a little more suburbs. * * * Parking Tickets A man in Sag Harbor had accumulated well over $500 in parking tickets that were never paid. The

man was arrested after he was caught driving with a suspended license. Police set bail at $350. * * * Bartenders A few bartenders in Southampton were arrested after police set up a sting operation to make sure that minors were not being served. The bartenders were approached by an underage, undercover agent, and presented a fake ID at the bar. When the drinks were brought over, the bartenders were immediately put into handcuffs by police and sent directly to jail. * * * Paintballing A man in Hampton Bays reported that he was shot at with a paintball gun while he was walking down the beach. The man was the victim of the Hamptons version of a drive by shooting, after two suspects rolled down the window of their Range Rover that they were driving on the beach and opened a flurry of paintballs at the man. – Compiled and Written By David Lion Rattiner
