Many parents don’t realize how early dental problems can occur, or just how important those “baby teeth” are! Prolonged and frequent bottle or breast feeding can cause baby bottle tooth decay. Diets high in sugar from fruit rollups, sticky candies, juice and soda can also cause lots of cavities. Thumb and pacifier habits can cause malformations of the palate. Children are not done losing their baby teeth until they are 12-13 years old! These teeth hold the spaces for permanent teeth, shape your child’s face, and help with speech, eating and chewing. Dr. Nancy Cosenza specializes in dentistry for children from infancy to their teenage years. At Hampton Pediatric Dental Associates, we know that not only children, but their

teeth, are entirely different from adults. In fact, pediatric dentists require 2 years’ additional training and education beyond dental school! (There are only 5,000 pediatric dentists in the U.S. and we’re the only pediatric dental practice in the Hamptons!) Our office is colorfully painted and cheerfully designed a definite “kid-friendly” environment. Our staff is geniunely warm and cheerful too! Call us at (631) 287-8687 if you have any questions or would like to arrange an appointment. Remember that good dental habits and experiences started in childhood will last a lifetime! We know how to make kids leave the dentist’s chair smiling -- and their parents, too!

For decades, we have sought out the smaller lesser-known properties of Bordeaux that consistently excel in their quality-to-price ratio. At Sherry-Lehmann, we refer to these discoveries as Unsung Heroes.

The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unsung Heroesâ&#x20AC;? of Bordeaux Bottle


Chateau Maison Neuve 2005

$16 $20388

A superb combination of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, this 2005 combines uncommon backbone with a framboise-scented nose, rich texture and an agreeable style. (4807)

Chateau La Gatte 2004

$11 $14388

Chateau La Gatte Tradition Rouge 80% Merlot 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a field blend, vinified in Stainless steel tanks then aged in concrete vats until bottling. Classic, spicy, with good grip, this wine drinks well young but can age for over a decade. A Classic Claret with beautiful flavors that is a superb foil to meat dishes and especially lamb. (A0170)


Chateau Roquefort 2005

$13 $16788

The original Chateau Roquefort, located in the Entre-Deux-Mers region, dates back to the 13th century. Crafted from a skillful blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, this 2005 is superb. (4808)

Twelve Bottles - Consists of one of each of the 12 Unsung Heroes shown here. (A0309) Bottle

Chateau Thebot 2005

$13 $16788


Chateau Beynat 2005

$17 $21588

Here is a darkly colored, ripe and serious blend of Cabernet and Merlot from the Bordeaux satellite region of Cotes de Castillon, which produces exceptional wine and great values. This wine drinks well now or can be cellared for several years. (4814)

Chateau Haut du Peyrat 2005 $13


Fine-styled Merlot fruit and quite pronounced new oak marry well into a restrained Medoc type structure; this is a full, but gentle, neatly-structured wine. (4810)





A great value in good, solid, everyday Bordeaux. This unfiltered blend dominated by Merlot is a fine Bordeaux that exhibits intelligent winemaking and loads of fruit in an accessible style. (4812)

Chateau Thieuley 2005 Chateau Jouanin 2005 Chateau Lascaux 2005 $14 88 $12 $15588 $14 88 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aromas of chocolate, berry and light vanilla follow Located along the right bank of the Dordogne River, Jouanin produces a charming wine that offers immediate pleasure due to its high proportion of Merlot. (4809)

Chateau Labatut Bouchard 2005

This Unsung Hero is a blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines are 35-40 years old and the wine is aged in 30% new oak, resulting in a concentrated wine with notes of blueberry, black raspberry and black currant and a touch of spicy vanilla. (4811)

$13 $16788 Chateau Mayne Vieil 2005 For 5 generations, the Bouchard family owned this vineyard. Its current proprietors purchased it in $14 88 1998 and are dedicated to excellence. Ripe, concentrated, sweet fruit is balanced by soft tannins. (4847)

Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc this Fronsac is well structured with good concentration and elegant tannins. (4815)

through to a medium-bodied palate, with lightly chewy tannins and a medium finish. Very nice now but some bottle age will help in its mellowness.â&#x20AC;? The Wine Spectator (4849)

Chateau Vieux Dominique 2005

$12 $15588

Another suberb discovery to add to our stable of Unsung Heroes! The Cabernet and Merlot ripened beautifully in the fall of 2005 making it a classic Bordeaux vintage. Look for hints of cocoa, dark berries and a little spiciness in its generous finish. Puts quite a few California Cabernets in the $20-30 range to shame. (4854)

HAMPTON SUBWAY SHUT Governor Paterson pulls License, Declares Subway System ‘Grossly Incompetent.’ Jitney, LIRR, Taxis, Government Vows ‘All Efforts’over Busy Labor Day Weekend By Dan Rattiner The busy Hampton Subway system, with stops in all 17 villages and towns between Westhampton Beach and Montauk, has been shut down by order of Governor David A. Paterson on Thursday night. The cause of it, it is believed, involved an altercation with local police at the Bridgehampton stop where the Governor, on a rare visit to the Hamptons, was “pinched” by a manually closing subway car door and briefly detained in what the Governor said was a racial incident. Subway police had ordered the door “pinch” after receiving a report by a surveillance camera monitor who thought they saw the man engage in pickpocketing. Our subway commissioner, Bill Aspinall, apologized personally to the Governor and offered recompense for his trouble, but apparently it did no good. The Governor signed the order at midnight,

and when Commissioner Aspinall stood in the subway system doorway at the Hampton Bays station near the Subway Main Office on Ponquogue Avenue, the Governor retaliated by calling in the National Guard. Soldiers are now

Now this.” Aides to the Commissioner have arranged a pulley and tackle arrangement outside his north window so that food, prepared by the cook at his oceanfront mansion at the instruction of his wife, can be brought over and hauled up to him. “This closing has nothing to do with the minor incident involving the Governor,” a spokesperson for Paterson said. “That affair is long forgotten. The fact is the Hampton Subway is mismanaged, incompetent and fraught with financial shenanigans. The system has been under investigation for some time. The Governor has pulled its license in the interest of the public good.” N. Y. State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo,

however, says no such investigation exists. “If there were one, I would know about it,” he said. Cuomo has a house in the Hamptons. “I use the subway all the time. It’s fine.” Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman, however, said he is sure that the incident when the Governor was briefly detained did play a part in the Governor’s decision. “He may have been investigating this for a long time,” Schneiderman said. “I don’t know. But I think this is the straw that broke the Governor’s back.” Local officials are scrambling to offer alternate transportation arrangements throughout the Hamptons so that the traffic jams on the roads over the weekend, which are expected to be very bad since this community is so popular,

does not result in gridlock. Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy has ordered a tripling of the local bus service during the weekend. “Governor Paterson has done a bad thing,” he said. Police officials in all villages and towns have called in traffic reinforcements, including retirees and trainees. They have all also requested reinforcement battalions from neighboring towns. So far, Patchogue, Ronkonkoma, Nesconset, Bohemia and Nissequogue have agreed to send details. “We will do everything necessary,” said Chief Larson of the East Hampton Village force. “There was a time BEFORE there was a Hampton Subway,” said Marina Van of the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce. “We’ll get

through this.” Geoff Lynch, the CEO of the Hampton Jitney, has ordered a doubling up of all bus routes to New York City and back. Mayor Epley of Southampton Village is asking all residents of that village to search their garages, put their names and addresses on tags attached to old bicycles and leave them around town for public use. “In World War I, all taxicabs in Paris were mobilized to bring troops to the front,” he said. In Westhampton Beach, the summer traffic monitors have been asked to ferry people around in their little golf cart vehicles. East Hampton Village will do the same. Also in East Hampton, Mayor Rickenback has ordered maps showing all the back roads to be placed in little stands on every street corner so people can avoid driving on Route 27 at all costs. Also, all alternate side of the street parking rules have been suspended Sag Harbor Mayor Brian Gilbride has called an emergency meeting of the Village Board about the situation for next Monday since, as he said, most of the Trustees are away for the holiday with relatives to avoid the crowds of happy tourists who invade Sag Harbor on weekends. “We’re already wall-to-wall,” he said. “Shouldn’t be much different this weekend than any other.” In Montauk, the Eastern Suffolk Surfing Association has organized 1,500 surfers who will organize as a free seagoing shuttle service to ferry tourists on their boards from the “boulders” at Montauk Lighthouse to all points as far west as the beach at Hither Hills State Park. Numerous taxi companies are offering free hail and pickup service everywhere in the Hamptons when the taxis are not on call. Shanette Barth Cohen, the director of the Hampton Classic Horse Show, which drew 30,000 attendees to this nationally known event in Bridgehampton last weekend, has ordered all horse trailers not in use to be out on the roads so tourists can be transported from town to town easily and quickly. “This closing showcases the importance of mass transit in an otherwise energy wasteful situation,” said Tom Neeley of the Southampton Transportation Board. “And it just shows what we can do when we put our minds to it.” Many local merchants have offered to help. The Sunrise to Sunset Surf and Sport Shop in Southampton will place a container of skateboards on the grass at the eastern end of the Sunrise Highway. “People will be able to use the shoulders of the roads with these skateboards and jump up and slide along the tops of the curbs as things worsen,” said manager Margaret Donohoe. Henry Hildreth is making available fresh new towels to anyone who swims out to the Hamptons. Pick them up at Hildreth’s Department Store in Southampton. “We will have out canoes, paddleboards and kayaks, operated by our employees, working a shuttle all along Peconic Bay,” said Jim (continued on page 54)

What if the Pope Came? Would the Hamptons, with all their New Laws, Bill the Vatican? By Dan Rattiner For over 30 years, every year, until this year, Dan’s Papers has held two events in Bridgehampton—a race called the Potatohampton Minithon on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, and a Kite Fly on a Sunday in August. We have done so over the years without having to fill out any forms. The Town was happy to have these events—the race because it raised money for Southampton Hospital and other charities, and the Kite Fly because, well, it was just a kite fly on a public beach for kids and parents and everybody wants to do that. A few years ago, it became necessary for us to

get the Town named on our insurance policy in order to indemnify them from any harm caused by the event, something which our insurance company did free of charge. Last year, the Recreation Department of the Town of Southampton called to ask if it could partner with us for the Kite Fly and we were happy to put them on all our advertising and publicity for the event. This year, however, was different. There were forms to fill out and applications to make, fees to be paid and overtime charges to be considered for the various town employees since they would have to be present at these events to a degree more than if the event had not taken place. I’d

never heard of this before. In fact, the part about paying overtime to town employees was entirely new. It wasn’t so long ago that town employees simply considered working such events as part of their regular duties. After all, when the police check for locked doors after hours downtown, it is part of their duties, even if it is at night. The fire department doesn’t ask for extra if they put out a fire at your house, even if it interferes with their regular routine of NOT having put out a fire there. Looking into this situation, I found that other events, both in Southampton and East Hampton have been hit up for money because of these new (continued on page 46)

WLIU-FM GETS MORE TIME TO PLAN FOR RESCUE By Dan Rattiner One of the great delights on the East End is listening to the public radio station WLIU-FM based in Southampton. It’s one of two independent radio voices on the South Fork, the other one being the rock and roll oldies station WLNG-FM in Sag Harbor. WLIU-FM is a more thoughtful talk radio station, with classical music, interviews and feeds from both NPR and the American Radio Network. Two months ago, WLIU-FM learned it would be having the proverbial rug pulled out from under it by the people who own the station— Long Island University, based in Brooklyn.

LIU intends to cease broadcasting WLIU-FM on October 3. They are also interested in selling the broadcasting license to somebody else. October 3 is also the date when the lease to the property where the station is expires. It is located on the campus of Stony Brook Southampton College. Stony Brook Southampton College, which bought the campus from LIU four years ago, does not want a radio station on campus at this time. Its current mission is as a campus for environmental studies and creative writing. Those students interested in radio or TV should take courses in the main Stony Brook University Campus

in Stony Brook 60 miles to the west. The staff of WLIU-FM has been told that they will cease to be paid on October 3. But last week, they were also told that a new shortterm extension of the lease had been worked out between the two universities. The new deadline is to be December 3. “This just means the station equipment does not have to be out on October 3,” station manager Wally Smith told me. “What it does not mean is that any of us will be paid by LIU after October 3.” Smith has been actively trying to put togeth(continued on next page )

er a group of public spirited citizens to buy the station license from LIU so the station, with new call letters, will continue. The license is the last radio license that will be issued for the East End until such time as the Federal government concludes there ought to be more. It is also a non-profit license, which means that only public nonprofit radio can be broadcast with it. There are about a dozen other radio station licenses on the East End, but every one of them is owned by radio station chains, many of which have signals and frequencies from other licenses in places like Connecticut and Massachusetts. Local though they may be, their focus is not only on the East End. Only WLIU-FM and WLNG-FM do that. It would be a shame to lose either one of them. Smith has assembled a group of people with deep pockets to try to buy the license from WLIU before the deadline. They have also reached out to the general public and asked people to sign up as â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;supportersâ&#x20AC;? of WLIU-FM or its proposed successor that Smith would run, which would be called Peconic Public Broadcasting (PPB). The list of people who have signed up on this list is quite long and includes, among others, me. I love Bonnie Grice, who does the morning show. I love other shows and I love that we have such a station. But so far, there is no mechanism set up to contribute funds to help pay for the purchase of the license, which is rumored to be available for about $800,000. The strategy at this point is, apparently, to

just make this list and then let the businesspeople representing the group deal with LIU to try to buy the station license preemptively before LIU shops it. Only after the amount is decided upon would the fundraising effort take place. LIU, however, is a private educational institution notorious for losing money running their different colleges around Long Island. There are those who say there are six different interested bidders for the station license. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if this is true, and neither does Smith, but if it is, it is undoubtedly radio people who want to just add this license to the chain broadcasting their other programming, or it is perhaps a religious group wishing to get a voice on the East End. It cannot be a private, profit making operation. But it could be a town or a village or any other non-profit. It seems to me that in the end, LIU will sell the license to the highest bidder. If there are six, there might be a bidding war. It would be

sad if there were and PPB did not have the funds put together yet to be in the mix. I suggest that PPB create a non-profit corporation that could at least ask for and get pledges for when the time might come. I hope they take me up on this idea. The station costs about $2.4 million a year to run. About $1.1 million of it is raised every year from private funding and merchant pledges. The balance has come from the hapless LIU bigwigs who are now looking forward to not having to shell out the $1.1 million to make up the shortfall. In any case, the station, whoever owns it, will have to move its facilities to another location. Stony Brook Southampton wants the studios for additional classrooms for its wellrespected writing program. They also want the 12-story tall steel tower, which broadcasts the signal from the station and also broadcasts service from three different telephone companies, taken down. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a blot on the landscape of the campus, says Stony Brook, and they are right about that. A more appropriate location for the station, it seems to me, would be the East Hampton Studios owned by Mitchel Kriegman in Wainscott, out by East Hampton Airport. Kriegman is actively trying to assemble a wide variety of media operations at his property there. There are other places where the successor to WLIU-FM could go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been looking around,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. He will find a way, if there is a way to be found.

Grand Prix An Exciting Climax to the Most Fascinating Sporting Event Here By Dan Rattiner The Hampton Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton is many things. It is spectacle for 50,000 attendees, it is a fairgrounds of food and shopping and activities, it is a confluence of paparazzi and celebrities, it is an annual meeting under the big VIP tent for many of the wealthy of this community, and it is a big feast of gourmet food and drink for them as the events take place. In the end, however, it is about the Grand Prix on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m., where several dozen of this country’s best horsemen and horses vie to see who can jump over a series of fences the fastest and with the least trouble. And

because points obtained from winning this event are among those added up to see who will be on the United States Olympic team, it attracts the best of the best. And because of how beautiful the setting is and how well it is run, it is considered among horse people to be the premiere horse show event in America. It has even eclipsed the Horse Show at Madison Square Garden in stature. There were 35 horses and riders entered in this final event, with entries from as far away as South America, Europe and even New Zealand. The favorites for the event included the sensational Hillary Dobbs, a 22-year-old rider who has entered and won five of the last six events

she has participated in, including this event last year. She rides aboard Quincy B and is virtually assured to be a future Olympian. Other favorites who got through a Friday qualifier included Olympians Norman Dello Joio, aboard KLM Jimmy, and Leslie Howard, aboard Jeans Glove Varnell. Another clear favorite was Olympian McLain Ward, aboard Sapphire, who won the qualifier on Friday and the Fendi Cup here on Saturday and had been a past winner of this event three times. Still another top qualifier and a perhaps sentimental favorite was Georgina Bloomberg, the young daughter of the mayor of New York City, riding Street of (continued on next page)

OBAMA & MY $22,000 OVERNIGHT HOSPITAL STAY By Dan Rattiner At the present time, there is a lot of talk around the country about whether the government should step in and provide health care for those who cannot get it from the private sector. I don’t know if this is a good idea or not, but I think for Obama and others to go around the country holding town meetings to explain things is helpful. I think it is absolutely unhelpful for the insurance companies to send hired goons to these meetings to shout misinformation and compare Obama to Hitler. I also have my own story to tell about health care. And I think it sheds some light on the

subject. About a year and a half ago, my wife and I were staying at a hotel in Los Angeles while visiting my wife’s son. The second day there, after dinner up in our hotel room, I felt pain in my chest, had sweats and palpitations and thought maybe I was having a heart attack. I never had one before. So I sat down on the bed and took two aspirin, which is what you do when you think you are having a heart attack. Also, we called an ambulance. Better safe than sorry is what we both agreed. Three firemen came to our room with paramedic equipment. They took my blood pressure and pulse, listened to my heart and asked me

what was happening. The upshot of this was, even though I was still having these symptoms, they said they did not think this was a heart attack. On the other hand, they were firemen, not physicians, they said, and if I thought I wanted to look into this further, they would take me to the nearest hospital, which was Cedars Sinai. It was also noted at that time that I was lucky we were going there because if I was nearer to another hospital, the waiting rooms resembled zoos and I would undoubtedly be there for half a day before anybody would see me. Cedars Sinai, however, was a wonderful (continued on page 52

Diamonds. She won several events this spring, including the WEF Challenge Cup in April. And she’s now getting to the top of her game. Her dad was right there too, in a front row seat in the VIP section. The rules for the event were simple. There were 15 jumps. If your horse could get over all 15 in less than 100 seconds without knocking over any railings and nobody else could do that, you won. If others did that, there would be a playoff with fewer jumps (in deference to the effort exerted by these magnificent beasts leaping their 2,000 pounds of bulk high in the air so often in the initial event) and fewer seconds within which to do it. Usually at past events, when there are 30 or more horses entered in the Grand Prix, half a

dozen of them will clear the fences clean and qualify for the jump off. On this occasion, whether it was because of the difficulty of the 15 Conrad Homfeld designed jumps or the soft conditions of the turf, it was a different story. The first 12 horses all knocked at least one fence post off. The 13th, however, was a surprise. The horse was an elder statesman, a 19year-old named Oliver, ridden by Judy Garofalo Torres, not expected to be a factor on this day. The pair, from Higher Ground Farms in Dover Plains, New York, cleared all the fences clean in 91.91 seconds. It appeared for a long time that this pair would be the only ones who would do that. If so, they would win the event without a jump off. Dobbs, aboard Quincy B, came soon thereafter


in the order. Running patiently and carefully, the pair cleared all 14 of the 15 fences clean, including two fences just past halfway that had been the nemesis of everybody else. Not only had nearly all the horses kicked down the top fence post repeatedly, several balked entirely at them and had to retire. Dobbs celebrated too early, however. At the final fence, in front of all the VIPs in the box seats only 10 feet from her across the rail, she slowed down Quincy B too soon before the last fence, with the result that he ticked it with a back hoof and down it came as he went over to a wide array of groans—followed by polite and appreciative applause. A somewhat similar fate occurred with Bloomberg. She and Street of Diamonds got through the hard part, but then, approaching the final two fences, which were in a row, Street of Diamonds just balked and pulled up. Bloomberg had to retire with that. Soon there were just three jumpers left in the event. I might note that sitting at the railing in the VIP section it is possible to see the amazing interaction between horse and rider as they attempt to accomplish this strenuous feat without fault. You can see the riders lean back to slow their horse before a jump if it seems they are getting too close, and you can see the horse find his footing for the jump as the rider, with his knowledge of the steed’s ability, places him there to find it. It is an astonishing thing, this relationship. Mario DesLauriers, aboard Paradigm, raced through the first 14 jumps clean in what would be 83.74 seconds when it was over but also knocked over the last railing. Next to last was Candice King, another favorite, aboard Toronto. And this pair made it to the next to last jump before sending a rail to the ground. Wasn’t there anybody going to do this to create a jump off? There was. McLain Ward, the last jumper, went through the course aboard Sapphire in a quick 86.52 with a steady gaze and steely nerves without hitting a thing. In a way, the jump off was an anti-climax. It seemed a foregone conclusion that the Olympian could beat the outsider in the jump off. He’d beaten her time in the qualifier, and he’d completed the course in the event five seconds faster than she had aboard Oliver. The course was shortened. Could there be an upset? There was not. Torres, aboard Oliver, went first and although she went through the shortened course clean she took careful time in doing it, and, in fact, exceeded the time limit by one second. It was not a fault, which would cost 4 points. But it got her a 1-point penalty. If Ward could get Sapphire through clean and in a faster time they would win, and they did. Ward and Sapphire did the course in a speedy 50.81. The cup for the FTI Grand Prix, the winner’s share of the $250,000 and the further Olympic points belonged to Ward and Sapphire, clearly the best horse and rider team in the show.. Ward has now won this event four times, a record. After the winner’s ceremony, he raced Sapphire happily around the oval waving his hat over his head like a cowboy, and everybody cheered. What a wonderful day.

A Day at the Beach An Ominous Ship, a Blue-Eyed Fish, and a Crumbling Wall By Susan M. Galardi Sometimes, things are not what they seem. Sometimes they are. And sometimes they are much more than what meets the eye. On a recent Tuesday morning, I went to take some photos on the beach in East Hampton for the paper. It was that perfect day—upper 70s, brilliant sun, blue sky. In addition to what I was looking for, I uncovered a few other things. Out in the distance on the ocean, an ominous, huge ship the size of a Navy destroyer was just hanging there, protecting our coastline. Against

what? I hadn’t checked the news that morning. Was there a recent threat to national security? I watched it through the mist. It looked like it would be on the horizon for a while, so I took a photo and continued on. Lying on the sand, at the edge of where the waves lap up on the beach, was an odd looking fish. It was about six inches long, with wing-like fins and spooky bright blue eyes. I took a photo. Farther east, over the dunes, plain as day, was the enormous concrete wall built by Ron Baron. A construction vehicle on the property side appeared to be taking away huge slabs of con-

crete—a row of the wall was being plucked off like LEGO blocks. I knew of the wall. But this was the first time I saw it for myself. This was a day of mystery and intrigue for sure. Here, on a beach I’d been going to for 25 years, were two things I’d never seen before, and one that, even seeing, was hard to believe. I took a few photos then headed to the office do some investigating. The ship, it turned out, was a passenger cruise ship heading into port in New York, not a destroyer. Less interesting, but for the better. (continued on next page)

CABLEVISION, NY METS, WATER MILL & MADOFF By Dan Rattiner If you’ve ever doubted that the real estate prices in the Hamptons are among the highest in the country, even in these tough times, all you have to do is look at the list published in Forbes Magazine last week involving real estate prices. Forbes examined all 25,000 zip codes in America, looking for the median price of real estate for sale in each community—the median being the price where half the homes on the market are higher and half the homes on the market are lower. They didn’t publish the results for all

25,000, but they did publish the top 500, in descending order. Thirty-four of them are from Long Island and almost all the communities in the Hamptons made the list. The most expensive zip code on Long Island is Water Mill. The median asking price for a home there is $2,966,907. Second is Bridgehampton, which is about $18,000 behind Water Mill. Fourth is Amagansett and fifth is Wainscott. (Mill Neck, in western Suffolk, is third.) The most expensive zip code in America for the asking price of real estate, by the way, is Alpine, New Jersey.

The City announced on Thursday that, after hearing proposals from both of them, it is Poll and not LeRoy whom they will negotiate with to determine the future of that place. The LeRoy family has had the lease for this famous restaurant for nearly 40 years, and the LeRoys have roots in the Hamptons. (continued on page 34)

I sent a photo of the fish to our erstwhile fishing columnist, Rich Firstenberg, who identified it as a sea robin. I looked it up later in my little 1956 paperback book, Fishes. And this was the interesting part: The book said the fish is “found in the Gulf and Atlantic north to the Carolinas.” But here we are, 1,000 miles farther up. What was a sea robin doing here? Was this another example of global warming? I emailed Darren Johnson at Stony Brook Southampton. He contacted the head of their marine station who said, “There is a species that is indigenous to this area. We see them all the time.” Another theory crushed—by a blue-eyed bottom feeder. The last issue was the wall that was coming down, and this is no mystery. Baron built the seven-foot high, 800-plus-foot long wall last summer, in front of his home and an undeveloped parcel he owns just east of it. When pressed, he said that it was a retaining wall. When East Hampton Natural Resource Manager Larry Penny learned of the planned construction, he sent Baron a warning letter— the Town doesn’t take kindly to residents destroying ancient double dunes. So finally, Baron started to have it removed. According to East Hampton Town Attorney Tiffany Scarlato, “The wall in front of the house—about half the length of it—has been cut down below grade. He had to take it apart with a circular saw. The dune has been restored and revegetated in front of the improved property [the lot with Baron’s house]. He wasn’t required to remove footings

beneath the dune, because that would’ve done more harm than good.” Baron apparently wants to keep the other part of the wall in front of the undeveloped piece of land. “No one can figure out his logic on that,” Scarlato said, adding that they’re waiting now for an as-built survey, and completed application to the Zoning Board of Appeals In any case, clearly, a seven-foot-high, 800plus-foot long wall isn’t meant to keep sand in. It’s meant to keep people out. And this is where it gets interesting, falling under the category of “best laid plans.” Several years ago, Baron spearheaded a movement on this beach, called Two Mile Hollow. Some saw it as his contribution for the good of the beach going community. Others saw it as a diabolical plot. Reports in local and regional media said that Baron’s goal was to destroy the social fabric of Two Mile, which for decades had been known by some as “the gay beach.” Baron claimed there were illicit goings on at night, and hired a private security company to take video. Not being a habitué of the beach at night, I can’t attest to that. But, I can attest to the fact that Two Mile was one of the most beautiful East Hampton beaches, attracting all sorts of people—families, locals, visitors, a lot of Canadian and European “mixedgender” couples who appreciated the free, open feeling of a beautiful expanse with no fences, trash cans, nor supervision. Two Mile was a civilized, live and let live beach, like some of the beaches I’ve visited in the South of France. For decades, Two Mile was set up like this:

Straight couples and families went off a little to the right. Gay women were smack in the center. Gay men veered to the left. Of course, none of this wasn’t etched in stone—that was the point. All were welcome anywhere, anytime. In any case, Baron ignored this culture, instead focusing on alleged night activity on the beach. So he hired the agency to prove his point, but when those antics failed to get the result he wanted, Baron tried another tactic. People are swimming. They need to be protected. They need a lifeguard. Maybe he thought the village wouldn’t (or couldn’t) pay for that and would simply close the beach. Maybe he thought that a certain element would stop coming to the beach, at any time of day or night. His argument resulted in Two Mile being closed for swimming in the summer of 2006. The village did a parking lot space count, and based on that number, realized the beach had to have bathrooms and a lifeguard stand. And until they did, there would be no swimming at Two Mile. So, on sunny, happy Saturdays that summer, East Hampton police, armed and in full drag, trudged and drove four-wheelers up and down patrolling the beach, to make sure no one went into the ocean. There were cops on jet skis in the water who actually zoomed over to and yelled at people daring to wade in the water. It was frightening. Parents were in the awkward position of having to explain to their children why this beach was crawling with uniformed cops with guns, walking by their blankets in the light of (continued on page 34)

Who’s Here

Craig Bailey/Perspective Photo

By Katy Gurley Nona Hendryx, after some 50 years as a star, songwriter and producer of rock and funk, has been spending a lot of her time lately giving back, helping new artists get a chance at the kind of success she earned. “I know how difficult it is to make it out there,” said the 65-year-old former member of the 1960s group, Patti LaBelle and the Bluebells, which morphed into the sensational ‘70s group, Labelle. Hendryx has been a successful solo act since the group broke up in 1977. “The many years I’ve been an artist, I’ve seen new artists struggle. You can lose part of the joy of your work in that struggle. You’re mainly just trying to be able to pay rent and be an artist all the time,” she said during an interview last week. Hendryx’s latest effort to showcase new talent, a show called “HopeStock: Music to Bail out Your Soul,” will be held the evening of Friday, Sept. 11 at the John Drew Theater in Guild Hall. This concert series features Hendryx herself, along with an array of emerging and established New York and internationalbased artists. “Hopestock is an eclectic group. You don’t normally get to hear that diverse a concert,” she said, adding that the show will feature contemporary classical to folk to rock, with a little bit of blues. Hendryx has always been on the cutting edge of music. Although she says she has been likened to Tina Turner (a comparison that pleases her), her songs are her own, with edgy, provocative, political and empowering messages. “My favorite singer as a child was Mahalia Jackson. Her voice and the spirit in her voice were so amazing and moving. It had its effect on me,” she said. As the main songwriter for Labelle, Hendryx helped enable the trio (which included Sarah Dash) to break the traditional girl group mold. Labelle racked up three gold albums and had a Number One world hit with “Lady Marmalade (Voulez Vous Coucher avec Moi Ce Soir?)”. The trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999. Hendryx’s subsequent work, including solo albums, a stint with the Talking Heads, and collaborations with Yoko Ono, Bill Laswell and many others, has continued to embody her quest for what she calls “transformation,” bringing underground, African American and pop music together. Top 10 hits have included “Bustin’ Out,” “Keep It Confidential,” “Transformation,” “Why Should I Cry?,” “I Sweat (Goin’ Thru the Motions)” and “Winds of Change.” And the work goes on, touring and record-

Nona Hendryx, Singer/Songwriter

The daughter of a railroad porter and worker and a housekeeper, Hendryx was born in Trenton, N.J. in 1944, the sixth in a family of seven children. “With nine of us, everybody had a role to play,” she said. “The girls washed the clothes and cleaned the house, and we all had to look after each other. We all had jobs to do. In the summer, we went to my grandmothers’ farms in Wantagh and Hempstead and picked vegetables all summer. A lot of my aunts lived on Long Island, and one who was part Native American and European lived in Montauk, so we would go out there.” Her plan as a child was to go into education. “I had sung in church as a child but it was not like I was going to be a singer. I was going to go to college and become a teacher,” she recalled. She remembers her childhood as being sort of traditional, but her parents were not particularly strict. And so, when the young Nona, at 16, discovered she could sing and wanted to scrap the college/teacher thing and tour with a small group, her mother gave her blessing. “Of course, we had a chaperone,” she said. “So I left home to tour and never came back.” Those were heady times, she recalled, going on “American Bandstand,” and traveling around the world and meeting people like Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Frankie Avalon, and, at 17, hanging out with the Rolling Stones. Many years later, she would collaborate with Keith Richards on a Grammy-nominated recording, “Rock This House,” featuring Richards on guitar. In the last 15 years, Hendryx has expanded her talents and repertoire to include theater and film, working with director, writer and producer Charles RandolphWright. “I moved onto doing musical films, working with Charles and producing a show called Skin Diver, and in New York, did a musical play, called BLUE, that starred Phylicia Rashad (of TV’s “The Cosby Show” fame) and Michael McElroy as the title character Blue Williams. Hendryx composed 11 new songs and she and Randolph-White co-wrote the lyrics. BLUE broke box office records in its premiere at Arena Stage, the Roundabout Theatre in NYC and the Pasadena Playhouse (where it starred Diahann Carroll and Clifton Davis). Hendryx also collaborated with Randolph-Wright on the film, Preaching to the Choir, which swept the feature film prizes at the American Black Film Festival. “Whatever I work on,“ she said, “it always has something to do with music.” Nona Hendryx: “HopeStock: Music to Bail out Your Soul,” Friday, Sept. 11, 8:00 p.m., at The John Drew Theater in Guild Hall.

She has just returned from Chicago, where she appeared in concert with Diane Reeves and Layla Hathaway, daughter of singer Donny Hathaway and a musician in her own right. In June, she finished up a reunion tour with Labelle. “It was great. It was a real reunion,” Hendryx recalled. “There was a lot of fantastic kind of love and reuniting. Then there was all the stuff that, like family issues, are revisited and reignited. So, there was a lot of joy, but horror moments, too. The three of us have very different opinions but we are also like sisters who’ve experienced being in our teens together.” The audiences were “absolutely beside themselves,” she added. “It was like having fans who had been waiting 30 years for this. There were people who brought their children and their children brought their children.”

day. Wiborg was right down the lane. It had lots of parking. Yet it didn’t require a shutdown nor did it take on the feeling of a police state. By the following summer the beach had both a lifeguard station and bathrooms. And garbage cans. And fences—for plovers and to cordon off driving areas. Two Mile had gotten kind of ugly. But then several other things happened that I don’t believe anyone was able to foresee. The beach did not fall out of favor, it became more crowded. Families who wanted a less frenetic scene than that at Main Beach went to Two Mile instead. In addition, in the last decade, there’s been a tremendous increase in the number of families in the gay community. Many of the people who’d been coming to the beach since the ‘70s were now there with their partners and children. Now the beach was a homogenous mix of singles and families of all stripes, whose children played together. That influx of newcomers only pushed the rest of the crowd farther right, and farther left—right in front of Baron’s stead. And this is one theory of why he built a walled city. His almost five-year long best laid plan had backfired. Over the last few years, more and more people have gone to that beach. During the last year, the wall got higher and longer. Now a good part of it is gone, and chances are the rest may also end up being gone forever. But all the happy revelers at Two Mile Hollow, as time has told, are there to stay.

Warner LeRoy, Jennifer’s father, had negotiated the last lease with the City in 1973 at a time when the City was in desperate financial straits. Warner was a grand, flamboyant entrepreneur with a great flair for showmanship and the city wanted him. They arranged a lease for just 3.5% of the gross on very favorable terms and they even agreed to give him the rights to the name of the place. Warner LeRoy built a great mansion in Amagansett on 10 acres, with not only a swimming pool and tennis courts, but also with a pond and waterfall. He was quite the man about town out here. LeRoy went through a bitter divorce in 1999 and in 2001, died at the age of 65. As there were still eight years to go on the lease, his daughter, Jennifer, took over to complete the lease and, if successful, negotiate a new

one. Poll has offered to do a complete renovation of the Tavern, from top to bottom. It will include a lounge on the second floor offering small plates, an outdoor café, separate entrances for the catering business and the restaurant business and a complete re-landscaping of the property. He estimates the cost of the renovation to be about $25 million and if what he has done with the Boathouse is any indication, he will do it quite well. Poll beat out not only Jennifer LeRoy, but also a third bidder, restaurateur Seth Greenberg, who owns Capitale. The Tavern on the Green grossed $36 million in 2008. The restaurant is unionized, which the Boathouse is not. Poll also will have to do final negotiations with the City and that could fail. The name “Tavern on the Green” belongs to the LeRoys and that could be a problem. The game may not be over. * * * When Bernie Madoff, who summered in the Hamptons, went public to confess he had been running a massive $65 billion ponzi scheme for 20 years, one of those badly hurt was Fred Wilpon, the owner of the New York Mets. Although the total of his losses is not known, estimates are that it was in the order of $700 million. Last week, a new book about (continued on page 36)

Whispers When Director Davis Guggenheim’s An Inconvenient Truth, starring Al Gore and his mission to raise awareness on global warming hit theaters nationwide, it seemed like the catchy phrase “go green” instantly turned mainstream or dare I say, trendy. I realize the actual movement to protect the environment isn’t anything “new,” but utilizing the phrase “go green” became its own movement. It was instantly acceptable to integrate the term “green” into any theme. Suddenly words like “organic” and terms such as “environmentally friendly” were at the center of every marketing campaign from fabric softener to A-list Hollywood events. Slapping “Green” on a product or laying out the “green” carpet for a media event showed you were in the know and “doing your part” to act environmentally conscious. I am actually hoping and praying that the national release of Robin Baker Leacock’s new documentary A Passion for Giving, featuring Dan Aykroyd, Ross Leacock & Bubbles Bleckner, Henry Buhl, Run DMC’s Darryl McDaniels, Alexandre De Lesseps, Gael Greene, John Sykes and Richard Branson, will instantly do the same thing for the phrase “giving back.” The act of giving back to others is obviously nothing new, but putting a glossy spin on the phrase and integrating the “slogan” into mainstream media is exactly what this country needs. Who cares why the phrase “giving back” is becoming a marketing friendly term. The mission behind the movement is a topic that should be the center of everyone’s universe. The fact is, before the term “giving back” was chic, I have and will continue to base my TV programming and celebrity coverage on this core premise, “How does this or how do they give back?” When it comes to the depleted word “celebrity,” the phrase, or more importantly, the actual concept of “giving back” should always be incorporated. You get the point. That said, this Thursday September 3 is a local pre-screening of Leacock’s film at the Ross School in East Hampton. Leacock, who will be on-site, co-hosting the big even, said, “A Passion for Giving is about the simple gesture of giving. My hope is that this film will encourage people to act—whether giving of time or money, helping people, animals or the environment. Excepted guests include the film’s cinematographer, Robert Leacock, Ross Bleckner, Bob Colacello, Calvin Klein, Henry Buhl, Liliana Cavendish, Donald Sultan, Beth Rudin DeWoody, Debbie Bancroft, Jackie Astier, Deborah Hughes, Missy Hargraves, Christina Oxenberg, Countess LuAnn Delesseps and Kelly Bensimon. I am certain this distinguished audience will do more than their part to launch the “giving back” campaign and help make the (continued on page 55)

the Wilpons and their empire came out and it states that the Wilpons intend to sell the Mets to pay for their losses. The New York Mets were not able to deal for the best baseball talent until Wilpon came along. They were in the middle of the pack as far as what they could bankroll for talent and the team usually wound up in the middle of the pack. The best baseball talent usually went to the Yankees. The Yankees had the biggest bankroll of all. Since Wilpon, the Mets have increased their ability to negotiate for players and are now second in the major leagues only to the Yankees. Two years ago, it looked like the Mets might get to the World Series, but did not. And going into this year it appeared they might again, but practically every star on the team got injured this summer in a confluence of separate events that seems almost beyond coincidence. (It would make a great book or movie.) They are dipping into their minor league franchises just to make it through the season. Next year, though, hopefully, everybody will be healthy. But will Wilpon be back? Wilpon bought the Mets 10 years ago for about $391 million. It could currently fetch more than twice that. On Friday, Wilpon met with the press to discuss this issue. He said his losses were far less than the $700 million being bandied about and he also said that he and his wife and kids had an emotional attachment to the Mets that went way beyond what they felt for any Manhattan skyscraper they own. They would

sell buildings if they had to make up losses and it would be no big deal. He will be here next year. * * * A final story affecting the East End involves Cablevision, the $1.6 billion company business that is largely owned by the Dolan family. The Dolan family recently also purchased Newsday for about $650 million. They really do have nearly a monopoly control of what daily media we watch and buy. The latest news is that a national cable company called ComCast, which dwarfs Cablevision in size (and Time-Warner in Manhattan for that matter), has just won a court case in which it has been ruled that no single company can own more than 30% of the media in any large metropolitan area. If this decision stands, and it is expected it will stand, it means that several of the smaller cable companies in the nation might have to be put up for sale, and ComCast, along with the other big boys, will go shopping. An obvious target is Cablevision. Cablevision, early on, had ruthlessly gobbled up all competing cable networks creating for themselves a monopoly for TV service. But in recent years, they have done a good job in providing cable service to the community, with not only TV, but telephone and modem service. Though recently challenged by Verizon in the western end of Long Island in providing all three services, they remain dominant. The only alternatives are the satellite companies, which provide a higher

quality picture, but do not carry the very local channels and are sometimes subject to weather related loss of service. None of them offer the “triple play” as Cablevision calls it, either. The Dolans have on occasion flirted with the idea of selling Cablevision. They are publicly traded and have sometimes been aggravated by minority stockholders. Five years ago, they made an unsuccessful attempt to buy everybody out. In these hard times, the value of a share of Cablevision has risen from about $8 five years ago to the current price of $22. It did dip during the latest recession, but not much. Cablevision also has other distractions, which surely are opportunities too. They have made an admirable attempt to reinvigorate Newsday. It had been owned by a firm in Chicago. It is good it is locally owned again, even if it is with Cablevision. Cablevision also owns several sports teams and entertainment venues—Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall—also several cable networks, which were created by the now retired founder of the company, Charles Dolan years ago and have really become jewels in the crown. The sports teams are particularly fun and exciting, and the history of their value, of almost all sports teams’ value, has been to go up. Dolan’s son, James, who now runs the company, personally runs the sports teams. Shedding the cable service might not be a bad idea.

Tales from Under the Tent at the Hampton Classic

Lisa Tamburini Photos

By Susan Saiter Horse-people love beauty, in their animals, in their attire, and certainly in their dĂŠcor. Never was this more apparent than in last Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hampton Classic VIP tent. Entering the tent was like walking into one party with dozens of different themes. The orange and gray themed HermĂŠs table was draped with, what else, a HermĂŠs cloth. Most romantic, hands down, was that of Rechler Equity, with its allpink themeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from chairs, to plates, to light and dark roses, and little pink horses on the centerpiece. One of the beautiful tables, one that gave real pause for the beauty of the cause, was the ASPCAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. At each place setting was a fan with a photo and brief story of a rescued animal, like a female boxer mix, a tabby cat, and a horse. The ASPCA has embarked on several missions related to horse rescue, among them the New York City carriage horses. As a sign that horse jumping is okay by them as long as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;responsible and humane horsemanship,â&#x20AC;? one of the jumps in the Grand Prix Ring was sponsored by the association.

The favorite table of any horse-crazy child (or grownup who used to play with toy horses) would have to be the Kramer table, with plastic horses jumping out of the centerpiece hydrangeas. One of the most personalized tables was that of Marcy Warren, who rides â&#x20AC;&#x153;just for pleasure, not here at this show.â&#x20AC;? She keeps her horse at Two Trees Stable in Bridgehampton during the summer, and back home in Old Westbury during the rest

of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is my favorite event of the summer,â&#x20AC;? she said. While she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ridden in the Hampton Classic, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competed in plenty of other horse showsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;places at her table were marked by velvet-covered riding hats, each one of her own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The littlest hat is the one I wore when I first started riding,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;at age five.â&#x20AC;? Vases held enormous, horseyummy-size carrots. The table cloth was burlap and linen napkins were carrot colored. Yummiest looking for the humans? Hard to say. There was the giant pink Louis Roederer champagne bottle centerpiece (and lots of normalsized bottles that were not just there for looks). At some tables there was lobster salad and at others there was caviar. And then there was Mayor Michael Bloombergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. His Honorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choiceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a juicy hot dog or two. The mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Georgina, was competing in the event, somewhere toward the end of the lineup of riders. Ms. Bloomberg, who had won an Open Jumper class earlier in the week, had a perfect ride going in this $250,000 Grand Prix until the second-to-last (continued on page 42)

Art Commentary

“Homage to the Circle and the Square”

by Marion Wolberg Weiss Unusual Places, Spaces: Part 2 Last week’s “Art Commentary” featuring Amagansett’s Ocean View Art Center developed the idea that environment (in last week’s case, a horse stable) has a lot to do with how we appreciate art. Sculptures by Jack Stone in his East Hampton garden also illustrate the importance of setting and its physicality. Curated by Solar Gallery’s Esperanza Leon, the small to medium-size works are effectively arranged around the pool and grounds, but the setting never seems crowded. This is no mean feat when we realize that installing sculpture outdoors can come with built-in problems. According to Leon, one must consider scale. For example, an eight-foot sculpture sitting

Honoring the Artist: Pamela Topham Photo by Maya Rattiner Baker

Pamela Topham loves memories, especially the kinds that inspire intense emotion harkening back to a real-life experience or a powerful image. Her latest tapestries, including this week’s cover, are derived from such memories. Q: You’ve said that your last few tapestries are a departure in source and style. How so? A: My Sagaponack meadow music tapestries, inspired by the wildflower field on Parson Lane where I photographed my daughter, Eliza, 12 years ago, are based on memories of Sagaponack. So, too, is the potato field tapestry I did for the recent Box Art Auction. Q: How about the cover? Another memory? A: Yes. The boat at sea in a squall in the Block Island Sound is a physical, emotional memory. I really went through that experience in the 1980s. I used something called an eccentric weave when I created the work. The tapestry all came together: the waves, the weave, the boat. Q: How has your work changed in other ways besides having to do with memories? A: For one thing, I’m working smaller. My day job allows me to be more creative. I now don’t have to do a tapestry so that people will buy it. Q: Yes, other artists feel the same way when they have a day job. Are you being more experimental as well? A: Last year I was more experimental, and it was apparent in my recent show at the San Jose Museum in California. I’m also being experimental when I work with master weavers in Manhattan where I go once a month. I have been working over a year and a half on a project celebrating the Hudson River. It opened in Catskill, New York, and will be on view until Sept. 17. Q: I assume this project involved your going to the Hudson River area. A: Yes. Luckily I could stay with my uncle and aunt in Dobbs Ferry. I would go to the train station and do drawings and photographs. I have four tapestries from that experience. Q: How about your teaching experience? How

has that changed your work? A: I’ve taught exceptional people; most have never done tapestries before. They’ve been an inspiring group. I’ve learned from my students. Q: You mentioned the master-weaving group that you work with. Are there other venues where you are a student of sorts yourself? A: I went to a workshop sponsored by the New

York Foundation for the Arts; it was very helpful, teaching us how to get work on the Internet. Q: So many things have inspired you. A: Yes, it’s important when things come together. —Marion Wolberg Weiss Pamela Topham’s tapestries: Ashawagh Hall, Sept. 4-7.

Georgica Groins, Next Chapter: Fight Against the Sea By April Gonzales Herman Melville would applaud Gary Ireland’s tenacious pursuit of his quarry. Less manic than Captain Ahab, Ireland has patiently and methodically been in pursuit of his goal for over 10 years. It is not the great white whale he is trying to catch, but the white sands of the once broad beaches of Sagaponack. Ireland has not lost any limbs in the chase but almost lost his house to the sea, having moved it back twice already from the advancing waves. Last week,

Devastation on Potato Road.

he filed his appeal to the decision against his complaint handed down in his suit against Suffolk County and the United States (plus

It’s Our Last Goodie Bag of the Summer Season!


other responsible parties) regarding the Georgica groin field and the County’s obligation to replenish the sands washed away as a result of the installation of the rock jetties years ago. Both Moby Dick and the County won the first round, but this appeal may very well be Ireland’s harpoon gun to end this long running battle to protect the beaches. Ahab had a full crew to aid him in his quest for revenge, as does Ireland. Southampton Town has also filed an appeal and both the Group for the East End (GEE) and the Village of Westhampton Dunes have filed Amicus curiae briefs in order to insure that their testimony be a part of the appeal. It will be science and experience that challenge the testimony of the County’s expert witness, who swears that the littoral drift along our coasts is not from east to west, and therefore cannot be the scourge that has dragged away tons of sand on the westward side of all the groins, endangering homes and eliminating precious nesting habitat for the piping plover. (The plovers are back in Westhampton Dunes, by the way.) The constant drift westward of the ocean along the southern shore of Long Island is powerful. It is a constant steady flow of water that has eroded the headlands at the Montauk lighthouse to the point that the lighthouse itself may succumb to the sea. Hurricane season, which is now upon us, may temporarily reshape the beaches with the power of big waves redistributing sand and sand bars to the surfers’ delight. But ultimately, sand from the Montauk headlands ends up along the south shore until only the finest particles remain on Atlantic Beach, making it one of the broadest and whitest sand beaches there is on Long Island. However, the County’s expert testimony, whom Ireland, the GEE and Westhampton Dunes are all challenging as unproven, denies that this process exists, and therefore cannot possibly be causing the contested erosion. This leaves the County free of the responsibility for, and the continual cost of, beach replenishment in the Georgica groin field. All parties have a lot at stake in this appeal. Ireland has lost part of his real estate and may lose more taxable ocean front footage. A diminished tax base is not the only concern for the Town, it is the resulting issues of moving existing homes back from the shoreline until there is no more room to move them and the loss of one of our areas greatest attractions. The GEE wants to protect the habitat of the piping plover, which no longer can nest in the area. But it is the Westhampton Dunes that has the most to lose. And it may very well be the experience of Mayor Gary Vegliante that will turn the tide. Westhampton Dunes was recreated after a hurricane broke a 5,000-foot breach in the barrier beach. Numerous homes were wiped out, and acres of ocean front beach and real estate (continued on page 56)

By Amelia Persans The Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Papers 36th Annual Kite Fly on August 23 was a tremendous success. Despite weather predictions for a rainy, hurricaneinfluenced weekend, the weather and waves were perfect, providing the perfect backdrop for judging kites in the sky and on the ground. Of the 150 people who came out, several were fortunate enough to take home prizes. Alex Berg took home the prize for Best Homemade Kite, while Zachary Post won in the Scariest category. Kylie Mc Niel created the most Beautiful kite, while Pedro won in the Ugliest category. Noah Zapin was responsible for the kite with the Longest Tail, Max Les for most Futuristic, Reddy Flames for most Exotic, Albert Corachio for most Graceful and Henrietta for most Geometric. Josephine Kalish was the Youngest Kite Flyer and Danielle and Matthew were the Most Natural. Hudson Troy had the Lowest Flying kite. Illie Cooper had the most Colorful, Kate Burrows the Funkiest Mia Cravitz and Mia Leshne the most Newsworthy and Connor McNeil had the Tiniest.

Disappointing, but like the most gracious of horseshow parents, he sat through everyone’s ride, and didn’t leave until after McLain Ward took his victory gallop on Sapphire. But who didn’t have their eyes glued on Sapphire? Not just because of his chestnut good looks with the blaze on his face and its cute little brown speckles, but because he showed all the other horses how it was supposed to be done. The absolute show-stopper, Ward had taken the mare on one of those trips that even the seasoned horse-people in the tent knew was one of those rides through the stars, one you simply couldn’t take your eyes off of. Next to the Bloomberg table were the tables sponsored by Hampton Classic President, Dennis Suskind. Suskind’s daughter, Pamela, had asked for something special from one from her mother, Cynthia’s, favorite designers, Claire Beam. The result was a fleur de lys patterned table cloth and lots of cheery yellow flowers. Pamela wore a silk turquoise Madison Marcus dress she borrowed from sister Audrey (“Shhh, she doesn’t know it’s missing from her closet”). Many women wore hats, including the Mayor’s friend, Diana Taylor. Some sported fancy Ascot-Race style hats, sized from itty bitty to clear-the-aisles, here I come.

Pamela Suskind’s chapeau was a standout, a custom designed Kokin, which had a bright yellow peony above a mysterious black veil reminiscent of the likes of Marlene Dietreich. Pamela, a veteran of riding in the Hampton Classic, said she felt a lot more relaxed in this chapeau than in the one she had been accustomed to wearing, a riding helmet. “Honestly, I’m glad I’m watching now instead of riding, after 23 years of competing. Those five-foot high fences look a lot higher when you’re approaching them on a horse,” she said. The youngest Suskind, Audrey, was fresh-looking in her Valentino dress of light blue cotton with purple ribbon (no hat). As a rider who had started out in the lead line class for toddlers way back when, and this summer off from Curry College working as an intern at the show, she said, “It’s really a learning experience, watching the show start out as just a dirty field at the beginning of the summer, and ending up as this.” The relentless rain this summer, she said, made it less than glamorous. But glamorous this day was. In the form of the décor and of the VIPs, such as actor Cliff (continued on page 56)

For example, consider the experiences of sculptor Linda Stein, an artist who lived very close to the Twin Towers. On that fateful day of September 11, she found herself and her staff running away from the disaster she thought was a bomb. The event was traumatizing, but it also became a defining moment in her art— she began to make films that mirrored her fear, a fear that did not start with 9/11 but had existed from childhood. As a child, Stein had had recurring dreams of running away from an unknown enemy, trying to protect herself from an unknown danger. The cycle seemed to repeat itself on 9/11 when Stein found “real life” imposing on her dreams. Her subsequent video, Running, which juxtaposes scenes from Hitchcock’s Psycho, is the creative result of Stein’s personal anxieties. It is an evocative metaphor for her fears, thus, the moving image serves the subject particularly well with video’s penchant for camera/character movement and editing. Stein’s sculpture also changed as a result of September 11, taking the form of warriors. Her documentary, Body Swapping, is a result of this endeavor, recording people trying on the knights’ exterior trappings. A recent creative development is a video about Wonder Woman, who has now become Stein’s defender and protector, replacing the knights from the Middle Ages. Jane Martin’s video, Reveal, is also personal and symbolic of the painter’s worldview. Yet its ambience does not derive from fear like Stein’s, but instead conjures up images that might very well have helped Stein: a visual poem celebrating nature, particularly the ocean and female sensibility. The work also explores the juxtaposition between truth and fantasy, aspects that Stein also examined in Running. Reveal savors lyricism and rhythms, the video medium communicating these qualities in eloquent ways, ways that Martin is particularly adept at having spent part of her professional life as a filmmaker. While Stein’s and Martin’s moving images are psychological and personal, the series, “Artists Make Movies,” presents other works that are more politically based.

Lily Pond Lane Private Party for The Last Ember degree, was a former international law advocate, and a law clerk for the Israeli Supreme Court. With this book, he followed his passion for classical history (which he studied at the University of Michigan), to create a thriller novel that puts the reader in the throes of international intrigue and religious strife—all woven around historical facts. “I wanted to create something real, based on things that interested me when I was working around the world,” Levin explained. So using his first hand knowledge of Rome and the Holy Land, combined with historical reference, he wove a tale that centers around what he believes is an attempt by factions in the world to influence the future by changing the past—by actually erasing primary artifacts of history. Levin explained to the gathering that there are well-funded Islamic entities whose goal is to wipe out as much proof of Jewish and Christian history and its influences as possible, by destroying archeological finds. “That history is fragile,” he said, adding that there is a “collision of the ancient and modern worlds” going on at this present time.” Explaining the title, Levin said it’s from a poignant line of Virgil, “The last ember of an ancient flame is about to be snuffed out.” This book is about efforts to insure that efforts to snuff out history are known and understood. Levin’s lead character, a young international lawyer named Jonathon Marcus, is likeable and will be back in other novels, including one in process. Levin stressed that The Last Ember isn’t another myth thriller, like the DaVinci Code, but so much more do to its historical accuracy and being based on facts not myths. The novel takes places over just a few choice

Swimming Advisory at Havens; Plans in the Works By April Gonzales I found a plastic goat in the sand on the beach and it reminded me of how deeply immersed children become in the natural environment. They dig, splash, run and roll around in a way we adults don’t—a good reason why it’s important that we all pay close attention to the quality of the water in our bays and ponds. In recent weeks, the waters off of Havens Beach in Sag Harbor have come into the spotlight for contamination spilling into the bay waters from a ditch that collects run off from about 300 upland acres. And on August 28, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services issued an advisory against bathing at 64 county beaches due to heavy rainfall. The only East End beach on the list was Havens. The advisory was based on “the potential that bacterial numbers in excess of New York State Standards resulting from the heavy rain” would impact the beach. The recommendation was to avoid bathing or playing in the water for 24 hours after the END of the rainfall— which would have brought us up to Monday afternoon. This isn’t the first time Havens came under advisory. Local scientists and tests by the Suffolk County Water Authority (SCWA) indicate that Enterococcus bacteria levels are high in the ditch after rainstorms, but get diluted once the water mixes into the bay water off the beach. Enterococcus, which exists in the human digestive tract, can cause ear and urinary tract infections and has become the new

federal standard in determining water quality. But is it enough to tell the kids not to splash around in the ditch after it rains, and will they listen? Beaches are closed all along the California coast after significant rain events because of pollution run off, but surfers still swim out and suffer the consequences. But the fact is, storm water contamination is one of the greatest threats to surface water quality today. Various towns are trying various strategies. Southampton Village is trying to keep massive amounts of run off from flooding into Lake Agawam by using dry wells that will keep the roads from flooding and the lake from being polluted. A new driving range in the Bronx will actually be a roof top garden over a water treatment plant for the Croton reservoir water. Rain water run off will be siphoned off into a series of moats and natural environments like marshes that will cleanse the water by holding it for a longer period of time, allowing sunlight to break down contaminants and plants to take up nutrients that would otherwise flow too rapidly into surface waters. Even the new post office in Southampton seems to have a rainwater holding pond that could allow run off from the parking lot to be filtered before it re-enters the ground water. So can we apply some of these cutting edge environmental planning concepts to Havens Beach and make it an even better place for families? Maybe turn it into a new duck pond,

like the one that’s so popular in East Hampton? The Baykeeper Kevin McAllister thinks so. Years ago, the Peconic Bay Estuary program provided funding for a project that would redirect the run off that currently goes into the ditch that spills out in the middle of Havens Beach. The concept was to recreate a meandering biofilter that would reduce the bacteria and nitrogen that flow from residential areas into the bay. But the project languished and EPA funding through the DEC was withdrawn. Recreating a marsh that was once there is a concept that deserves a second look if we want to keep the beaches clean. There’s a lot of room to play around with an idea like this—as there’s quite a bit of land available. New marsh and wildlife habitat could be created and a boardwalk could cross over it. McAllister thinks a project like this could make Sag Harbor village an environmental champion. By combining a family friendly nature complex with a wetlands biofilter, wildlife habitat would increase and kids could go back to playing in an area where they might find more frogs and local songbirds. And if the kids get muddy, they’ll only need water to wash it off, not a dose of antibiotics.

laws for the first time. Some events have just paid the fees. Others have moved away. It turns out that it is not only Southampton Town that has these new requirements. East Hampton Town does too. Ellen’s Run, which has always taken place in East Hampton, moved away to avoid these multi-thousand dollar fees. They held their event in Southampton Village, a different entity from Southampton Town. And Southampton Village was glad to have them. I also learned that the introduction of these new laws did not begin in Southampton Town. I was lucky to have our events in Southampton Town without problem until this year. The new laws began in East Hampton Town, and, as these things do, they eventually migrated across town lines to other municipalities. Indeed, the new laws also evolved once they began. When the law began in East Hampton it was quite benign. The original law in East Hampton Town, when proposed in 1996, simply said one thing. It said that anyone having a party where there are more than 50 people in attendance needed to get a permit for that. But the permit would be free. I opposed this law in the newspaper when it was proposed. I just sensed something was up. I thought, and I wrote, that this seemed to me to be a violation of the Freedom of Assembly as guaranteed by the American Constitution. The reply I received did shut me up. I was told there would never be a restriction on Freedom of Assembly. The law was simply being put into place so the police would know where the parties were in order to be able to direct traffic when

they took place. Fred Thiele was the Town Supervisor in 1999. “That’s why the permits are free,” he said. “They will always be free.” “Okay,” I said. Thiele is no longer the East Hampton Town Supervisor. And I should have known better. So this leads me to ask the following question—which is the headline of this article. What would the Pope have to pay to arrange a parade through Town? The answer is, of course, it would depend if it were in East Hampton or Southampton Town, and the Town line separating the two goes from the Atlantic Ocean and Town Line Road all the way north to Sag Harbor where, along the aptly named Division Street, it runs down the white line in the center of the street and ends alongside Long Wharf. There are different rules on different sides of the street. So you should consider, as you read the rest of this article, which compares Southampton Code 283 with East Hampton Town Code 151, not only how it might affect the Pope, but how much it might affect you, should you wish to have either a party or a parade or other celebration in one of these two towns. As I said, East Hampton Town Code 151 has been dramatically revised since its original wording years ago, the last revision taking place this past spring. The Code has largely remained true to its roots, though. The permit is still free. But for other things, you might have to pay thousands of dollars anyway. (You and the Pope.)

gathering, you will need this free permit. You obtain it from the Fire Marshall. If you expect more than 200 people, though, in addition to the Fire Marshall, the police have to issue you the approval too. If it gets to be more than that, if the application is for more than 250 people, the matter has to be taken up by the Town Board. The Town is particularly strong on charging people who hold fireworks, parades and large gatherings. They hit them up for big bucks. In any case, you have to apply for your permit 30 days or more before you hold your event. So if you are thinking about something spontaneous, keep it under 50. (My wife recently decided that we ought to have a family celebration for an important birthday in our family. It was two weeks before the event when she decided that. Invitations went out. We were looking for a maximum of 49.) The East Hampton law defines a “gathering.” It is more than 50 persons for social, civic, charitable, religious, patriotic, amusement, entertainment, recreational, educational, athletic, sporting or similar purposes. While they were at it, they defined “Merry Go Round.” It is “a rotating circular platform fitted with seats often shaped like animals such as horses which may be fixed or may move up and down, often to music, ridden for amusement.” They define lots of things in the introduction to their law.

Talking About Work Today, more than anything else, Labor Day signals the end of summer, the season of play. While play restores us and fuels creativity in our daily lives, as well as in the arts and sciences, it is meant to balance meaningful work, not be a substitute for it. When we mark the end of summer this Labor Day, let us remember its origin and celebrate hardworking Americans—people who today may find themselves under-

paid or without work, fighting to survive—the people Terkel calls “ordinary people with extraordinary dreams.” Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do, by Studs Terkel. The New Press, 1997, 640 pages. Studs Terkel’s Working: A Graphic Adaptation, by Harvey Pekar (in charge of illustrations) and Paul Buhle (editor). The New Press, 2009, 208 pages.

By P. J. Mills Labor Day was created as a holiday in the late 19th century when, in 1882, the Central Labor Union of New York City designated a day of recognition for workers. Congress soon followed suit, making Labor Day a federal holiday in 1894. Initially it was a day of picnics and parades that celebrated and showcased the achievements, strength, and spirit of organized labor. The quintessential book that speaks to this holiday is Studs Terkel’s Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do. An unsurpassed oral history of working life in America, the book, when it was first published in 1974, was a revelation—a groundbreaking bestseller that gave voice to Americans rarely heard from: farmers and housewives; truck drivers and parking lot attendants; factory workers and labor organizers; carpenters and call girls. Terkel believes meaningful work is essential for the realization of a good life and these interviews show that workers share his belief. A journalist, radio broadcaster and oral historian blacklisted during the McCarthy era, Terkel, who died last year at the age of 96, was a “truth teller,” a man of the people with a gift for listening. In his interviews, he elicited from each and every person vivid, sometimes secret, details of their working life. There is the bookbinder who loves repairing old books and sees each one as a “life” saved; the gravedigger who is careful and reverential about his digging because he is creating the last resting place for what was once a human being; and the telephone switchboard operator who confesses to listening in on late-night calls when things are slow. There are workers who take great pride in the their competence, like the waitress who boasts of being able to set a plate down without it making a sound, or the supermarket cashier who knows the price of everything by heart and choreographs each move she makes. There are also the people for whom work is simply a means to an end, a way to feed, shelter, and clothe themselves and their families. One of these is the welder whose work life is ruled by monotony as he stands in the same spot, pushing the same button over and over and over again—eight hours a day, five days a week, 50 weeks a year. There is a jolt of electricity, a visceral power, in each of the interviews as people describe the accomplishments and difficulties of their working lives, their ways of coping, their dreams, and their aspirations. What is underscored in this impressive and valuable document is just how difficult it is to find meaning in the modern world of work. This emotional truth and existential dilemma of work remains vitally relevant today, as we see in the recent collaborative work by historian Paul Buhle and cartoonist Harvey Pekar: Studs Terkel’s Working: A Graphic Adaptation. Published in May of 2009, this book is a careful abridgment and illustration of Working that adds visual impact to the emotional force of the workers’ stories.

The permit remains free. But there are now “traffic control fees” to be paid to the Town Police. And there are “cleanup fees” to be paid to the Town Recreation Department. For each event of more than 250 people, copies of the application are sent to the Police Department and the Recreation Department so that estimates can be made on what the costs would be for overtime for people from East Hampton Town to deal with the situation. These estimates are then sent back to the Town Board reviewing the application, and whatever these fees are estimated to be, usually in the thousands of dollars, they must be paid in advance (they don’t care if you’re the Pope) because, as one town employee told me, “if we don’t get the money in advance, we don’t get the money.” Then, interestingly, the fees paid are reviewed after the event. And if it has been found that they estimated too high, then the Town Clerk returns the overage to the applicant, based on the vouchers put in by the Police and Parks Department. So you get some of it back. If they estimated too low, however, it is their fault. There are no further charges. Wow. There are no restrictions on how many parties or parades or other celebrations may be put on by any individual in East Hampton (there are in Southampton), but in deciding whether to grant a permit, the Town Board is allowed to consider “the size of the premises in relation to the number of persons expected to attend” and “the frequency of gatherings proposed or approved for

the premises and whether this frequency is so great that the gatherings constitute a persistent usage of the property incompatible with its character or with that of the surrounding area.” The Town can deny a permit to any applicant who has been found to have been convicted of a violation of the Mass Gathering law in the past, to any applicant who lies about what he intends to do, or, remarkably, for failing to go through with a prior event that you got a permit for. There are some prohibited gatherings. You can’t have a gathering of a circus in East Hampton. You can’t have a gathering that consists primarily of outdoor sale of goods or services unless the property it is on is owned by a notfor-profit. This means no crafts fair, open air bazaar, flea market or similar event unless on public or tax-exempt property. You also can’t have a carnival or festival, which includes mechanical rides, unless the event is sponsored by a local not-for-profit. (The Pope is Italian, or in the current case, German.) And if you do qualify for such a festival, it cannot include more than one merry-go-round or carousel ride. Ha! There is no appeal from the decision of the Town Board if they refuse you a permit. If you go ahead anyway, you can be convicted of a violation of this ordinance and be subject to a fine of up to $2,000 and/or imprisonment not to exceed 15 days (even if you are the Pope, I guess.) Each day that a violation continues shall be deemed a separate event. The East Hampton Code 151, by the way, is

listed as GATHERINGS, MASS. Southampton Law 283 is listed as SPECIAL EVENTS & PARADES. In Southampton Town, you can have a social occasion or activity of up to 100 persons before you need a permit. Beyond that, the law goes into effect and no matter how many people you have, it’s all the same. The sky’s the limit. But there are exemptions. The first is particularly dear to my heart. “Any assembly or similar gathering held for the purpose of Expressive Activity or the exercising of free speech protected by either the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which shall include the sole or principal object of which is the expression, dissemination or communication of opinion, views or ideas and for which no fee or donation is charged or required as a condition of participation is exempt.” How this might exempt the Pope, I cannot say. But, interestingly, if the Town Board doesn’t go along with it and insists you need a permit, which they then deny, you can, unlike in East Hampton, appeal. For that purpose, the law requires that a Public Safety Commission consisting of five members be set up to consider such appeals whenever they are filed. Wow! There are other exemptions. Not requiring a written permit are weddings, funerals, a family reunion, graduation party and a student assemblage or college reunion, so long as these events are to celebrate the propertynowner, the property owner’s family or a tenant of the property (continued on page 50)

owner. Also exempt are yard sales, although yard sales must be limited to no more than 12 days within a calendar year or no more than six days between Memorial Day and Labor Day. NOT exempted from permit requirements are weddings, funerals, reunions and graduations held in a residential zone that are not for the immediate property owner, his family member or tenant. Furthemore, in residential areas only up to two such permits may be issued in a calendar year. Or three times in other zones per calendar year, only one of which can take place at night. Bar Mitzvahs, Christmas parties or just regular blowout end of summer parties also are not exempt, even if thrown by property owners. As I said, only family weddings, funerals, graduation

parties and school reunions are exempt. Also, if you do want to hold an event for the purpose of “Expressive Activity,” you may do so without notice as long as such event is under 50 people. If it is more than 50 people, then you can still hold it without a permit, but you must notify the Town Clerk at least 48 hours prior to it. In every case, where an application IS required, it must be made to the Town Board at least 30 days before the event, or 90 days before a parade, and the parade cannot occur within 30 days of any other approved parade during the period of Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Recent improvements in oil heating technology have made oil heating much less costly. Today’s equipment burns 25-35% less oil each season. With future oil prices probably rising, heating system upgrades can return the investment through lower oil bills quickly.

mindful of the date for the Fourth of July parade. It is July 4.) Where East Hampton seems primarily concerned with those applying for the permit, Southampton seems primarily concerned with the property the permit will be held on. If the PROPERTY has had a violation to the permit during the three years prior to when the new application is made, then the property cannot qualify. Also, Southampton will tell you EXACTLY, in advance, just how much the police and parks department will charge you for what you are doing. They are not estimates. And there are no givebacks. And again, you have to pay the amounts in advance. However, the Town DOES have an application that would allow the applicant to get a waiver of the fees. Waivers are decided at the discretion of the Town Board, but are based on whether the event is considered by the Board to be in the nature of a public service event that all could enjoy. If it is, the Town may rescind the charges. The passage reads as follows: “This law may not apply to any special event or parade held on public property, open to the public that is free of charge, as determined by resolution of the Town Board.” (They would probably do this for the Pope. But then again, maybe not.) Southampton also is suspicious when waiving the fees for event promoters who say they are raising money for charity. Are they? The Town wants verification that the charity received the money. The Town requires that within 90 days after the event the organizers submit verification in the form of cancelled check to show that payment to charity has been made. The law in Southampton does charge application fees for a permit. This year the fee is $50 per day. Going ahead and holding an event without a permit in Southampton can get you a far worse outcome than in East Hampton. First offense can be one year in jail and $2,000 fine. A second or third offense will get you an additional year in jail, and if you do it again and again, you could spend even more time in jail, but your fine would be maxed out at $10,000. All in all, we’ve come a long way from the days when the Hamptons were so simple you could just plan an event, call the Town and ask them to help out and they’d say what do you need? We’re here. Fun is fun. Or was. I don’t know what to think it is today. Maybe it’s just something in need of being regulated.

BUSINESS Givin’ You the

The Mortgage Industry’s New Biz Model

By T.J. Clemente There are some sayings that go along with living and working on the East End of Long Island. One is, “As goes Wall Street goes the Hamptons.” With Wall Street no longer flirting with a 6000 Dow and now firmly at 9000 plus, along with growing reports of new home sales on the rise, existing homes are selling at a more rapid rate than in the first quarter of this year. The establishing of a bottom in what was viewed as a free falling real estate market seems to have taken place according to local real estate people. The general feeling is that things are beginning to get better. How is the mortgage business adjusting to this brave new world? A world that once had unemployed bartenders getting half million dollar loans without verification now has over qualified applicants waiting in cues for due diligence to run its course. (By the way, the bartender’s mortgage is not in arrears.) How will this all play out? The whole ball of wax just may be the ability of Americans to reach and get a mortgage they can grow into. Melissa Cohn, CEO and founder of Manhattan Mortgage, stated candidly, “Unless you make mortgage money more available to the consumer, I believe the economy will never get on track.” Admitting that she has had to retool her business model for Manhattan Mortgage to take into account longer approval time and more stringent requirements, she is dealing with the new conditions. Cohn explained how her employees must now know the specific needs and desires of every bank, then do the work the banks used to do to get all the ducks in a row. Even then the process seems to be painfully slow to Cohn, who built her company on getting smartly priced mortgages in a timely manner. It is a frustrating time for many in the mortgage business, as they watch qualified customers being held up and almost treated like unqualified applicants. Cohn believes President Obama “has his hands full” and sees the economy “muddling along for a while.” Unable to predict when the whole mortgage business might ever get back to where it was just three years ago, Cohn explained the business by nature is constantly changing. She preaches being, “ahead of the curve, instead of trying to catch up.” That means brokers and mortgage applicants must do their homework—very well. Some believe banks are basically looking for any reason not to approve loans, to protect their shareholders, especially after recent events when perhaps they might have become reckless in an out of control upward market. Cohn believes that now that consumers have more confidence in the banks, the banks should have more confidence in the consumers. While admitting that one in 10 mortgages in the country is in arrears, Cohn isn’t sure if the

darkest days are behind us, but hopes that after Labor Day a clearer picture of the near future will unfold. “People are vacationing, it is August,” she said, explaining that in the fall a true pattern will emerge. It seems bizarre that almost 10 months after President Bush, through then-Secretary of the Treasury Paulson, passed TARP, a $700 billion nebulous bill to help free up credit and make money more available

for mortgages and business borrowing, things are the way they are. Instead, the TARP money was used to stabilize the banks asset sheets. Although banks claim they are issuing mortgages to qualified applicants, the process, according to one broker, “ is like watching a glacier move.” The problem for so many deals is time. Cohn notes that rates are still very low, and the home still is the best asset one can own. But she deals in the real world with real numbers and real problems. It hasn’t been easy for her (continued on page 53)

hospital. I thought, let’s do it, lucky me. At the hospital, I was assigned to a gurney in the hall, but the care was splendid, right from the get go. Everybody ran around. They took blood, they did a CAT scan, they did a brain scan—a brain scan?—they had me drink something and then X-rayed me, they did a nuclear test of some kind. The upshot of it was they wanted me to stay overnight to get even more tests. They were not finding anything conclusive. But they didn’t want to let me go. There were still more possibilities. I was given a room. The next morning, of course, the episode was long over. Nevertheless they asked me to stay for these further tests and further results. I was on some special diet. In the afternoon, they asked me to stay still another night for observation just to be sure I was okay. I said I thought I’d been there enough and signed myself out around 5 p.m. They weren’t sure I would be okay. I said I was sure I would be. I signed various documents to get out. And my “heart attack” that wasn’t was never heard from again. My insurance comes from Dan’s Papers. It’s no better or worse than any other, and it does cover everything in a hospital. I went home. The hospital sent its bills to the insurance company. That seemed to be the end of it. Last fall, however, I began getting a bill from the Los Angeles Fire Department for $955 for the ambulance call. That should have been cov-

ered, is what I thought. After that, I got a bill for the same amount from Cedars Sinai. It was a double bill, and it was supposed to be taken care of by insurance. I decided to wait for developments. Three days ago, after getting a dunning call from a collection agency, I called my insurance company, which looked into it and told me they had personally paid me by check three months ago so I could pay for it myself. I looked in my checkbook and there it was. They were right. So I did owe the money. I asked them whom I should pay, and they said the hospital. Then, out of curiosity, I asked whether there was anything else outstanding and the lady there said, “Hmm, let me see. Well, the hospital billed you $22,416 for your day and a half there, I see

that. But then they gave a discount and we paid $17,444 and the matter is closed. So this is the only thing outstanding.” “Thanks,” I said. But I was stunned. $20,000 more or less for a day in a hospital? And it is just business as usual? It would take me four years of insurance payments to cover just this one 24-hour stay. At least four other people in America would have to pay their insurance premiums without making a claim if I wanted to have them pay for just that one day. It’s been said that no matter who provides the medical insurance, the bottom line is that all the costs come from a consult between the doctor and the patient. In my opinion, that discussion is way out of whack. It’s not as if I want to live forever. Well, actually, given the alternatives, I DO want to live forever. On the other hand, since nobody gets out of life alive, that is surely an unreasonable request. In fact, our present troubles with medical care come from a time, about 30 years ago, when the general public was led to believe we were on the verge of discovering that we COULD live forever. Science was that good. People, very excited by this information, decided to allow their bodies to be frozen in anticipation of that when they “died.” People lay in bed in a vegetative state and were held there for 10 years because the law said you could not pull the plug without their permission and any (continued on page 58)

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner The Bird It takes a lot for me to flip the bird. While driving with my Smart Car, it especially takes a lot. But last week was in that category. It was probably the most successful and satisfying bird flipping I’ve ever given. I was in East Hampton when the driver of a Prius, YES A TOYOTA PRIUS, decided that he was going to pull out dangerously in front of

these last two years. She expects results; she built her business on getting positive results for her clients, on overcoming problem situations prudently. Now she admits she must wait to see how things will evolve. Will the tough guidelines for mortgage approvals used by banks today get even tougher? Will these procedures retard the sale of homes, and all that goes with the sale of a new home, such as new carpets, new furniture, new paint, and new appliances? It’s all interrelated. Cohn understands the importance of getting the buyer the loan. She is undoubtedly correct that the sooner you get the mortgage money into the hands of the consumer, the sooner the economy will truly recover. The same goes for the Hamptons, where selling and buying homes is important. Most likely, as home values stabilize and increase, so will the availability of timely mortgage loans.

me to make a left hand turn. His car was filled, with two in the back seat and one in the passenger seat. There was a time when I first got my Smart Car when I thought Priusses were my car brethren. We both get good gas mileage, and we are both good for the environment, but my mind was instantly changed when this idiot pulled out in front me unexpectedly. I slammed on the brakes and saw an entire vision of what would have been a ridiculous car accident between a Prius and a Smart Car. I could see the traffic backing up behind me, I could see the police report and the insurance bills. I could see my Geico payments going up, all within half a second of terror. The Prius stopped short as well. He didn’t see me and his face looked surprised. Without any hesitation, I looked directly into the drivers eyes, flipped him a solid five second bird and drove on. Everyone in his car saw me flip him the bird, and I almost felt sorry for doing it, even though he deserved it. But I think that being the subject of a bird flipping is 10,000 times more powerful when there are other people in the car and you have no other reaction at all except a blank stare. “Why didn’t you flip him back? Why didn’t yell at him? That’s what people do,” was what his backseat drivers were saying. But he was paralyzed, completely paralyzed. It was like he knew he was wrong, and just accepting the punishment. No argument here,

no appeal, this guy was like the Bernie Madoff of drivers, he just took what was coming to him. “I was the guy who nearly caused the accident,” was what he would have said to reporters. “It’s all my fault. I’m the guilty one.” This guy could have so easily faked a more macho reaction, it’s not like I was getting out of the car or anything, but it was so wildly his fault, he just couldn’t bring himself to do it. I hate to say it, but I used to be the guy who had no ability to stick up for himself in a car to car argument. I’d get embarrassed and just move on. I’ve got to be the bigger person, I would think. This Prius driver may have been shocked to get the bird from a Smart Car, but we Smart Car drivers are a tough bunch let me tell ya. I see a lot of very serious people driving them, many of them tough guys. Take the Smart Cars driven by the construction workers of Lance Nil’s business. You wouldn’t want to cut those guys off. Then there is the Smart Car from the Sag Harbor Fireplace company. His car has flames all over it. You don’t see too many Priusses with flames all over them. I wonder if Prius drivers ever flip the bird? They are usually such nice people. They probably never do. But when somebody does something dangerous, extremely dangerous, a little gesture to let him know you are extremely unhappy with his behavior that is in no way violent is necessary every now and then, even when it is a Prius driver.

progress between the Southampton and Water Mill stations. A quick call was made from a clerk at headquarters to the motorman of that train, and with the guidance of the passenger with the cell phone, the thief was caught in the vise of the closing doors as he tried to flee the scene. The event quickly came to the attention of Janet Napolitano, the chief of Homeland Security in Washington, who immediately ordered the immediate $32 million purchase of the surveillance cameras for all cars on Hampton Subway. TV monitors were set up in headquarters in Hampton Bays, clerks hired to monitor them and report irregularities over direct lines to all motormen and the service began, without incident. Hampton Subway, Homeland Security officials believed, would serve as a model for future such surveillance camera systems on all subway cars around the nation as added anti-terrorist devices. This newspaper is convinced that with everyone pitching in, the Hamptons will be able to handle all traffic contingencies over the Labor Day weekend. It should not be necessary to make plans to go elsewhere. Everything will be just fine here.

days of action packed globe trotting intrigue. Levin’s brilliance was obvious from his charming presentation to this small gathering of friends. A detail man all his life, he explained the realities of the forces that rule the historical sites and the gathering of artifacts in the Middle East. He explained that the antiques dealers and their influence on corrupting government officials for profits, compounded by the desires of very wealthy private collectors whose vast sums of money can get them certain historical treasures not meant to be owned by any one individual. From this group the novel begins. The reading is smooth, filled with intellectual nuances that have the light feathered technique, as if an old history professor is telling you a story that gathers momentum with every line. His energy when he speaks telegraphs great things to come. Recently married to a physician, Levin is headed for many changes and exciting things, including the launch of his national tour. The faces of those at this gathering, people who requested their names be excluded from this article because they are very wealthy and very private, insure that Levin’s efforts are well grounded and supported. They were clearly proud of Daniel. One friend flew in from Geneva with his wife, to attend and to visit his mom and dad a few doors, or is it hedgerows, down. Most likely Daniel Levin and Jonathon Marcus are going to become household names across the world. The timing of this book and its message have traction and synergy.

ceased to exist. The brief that the village has filed in order to protect its interests, both present and future, states that: “The breach led to severe ecological damage to the bay and the flooding of hundreds of acres of property on the mainland of Long Island, and damage to hundreds of homes located there. The settlement involved a complete reconstruction of the shoreline and a commitment to maintain the restored shoreline for 30 years... “If, however, the larger project (meaning erosion all along the south shore, including the Georgica groin fields and the Shinnecock inlet) is for some reason not authorized or funded, the Village and its then residents will have no alternative but to sue again.” In other words, the Judge’s decision in Ireland’s original suit will endanger the earlier agreements made to protect the barrier beaches and the real estate of Westhampton Dunes. It may be that there are some stimulus funds available to rebuild infrastructure that can be applied to this beach replenishment project. Rumor has it that Tim Bishop is angling in that direction, but it is Ireland’s lawsuits that will be a major deciding factor in how we deal with one of our most valuable natural resources and income sources in the years to come. Perhaps he would be more aptly compared to the police chief played by our dearly departed Roy Scheider in Jaws who’s trying to protect the Long Island beaches from a different kind a marine threat. As an activist and former Sagaponack resident, the acclaimed actor would probably also applaud Ireland’s cause.

Real Estate Etiquette, Part IV—Agent to Seller By Susan M. Galardi In the theatre of real estate, there are many people in many roles, but surely two of the leading characters are the agent and the seller, who is otherwise known as the client. (Clients also include landlords looking to rent their properties; customers are those looking to buy or rent.) The agent/client relationship is the basis for all others—the buyers who come to the table as well as the mortgage brokers, attorneys, surveyors, title companies and others who follow. The better the working relationship between agent and client, the better chance of selling the property. Selling a house is often emotional, and the agent can therefore assume even more roles in the eyes of the seller: friend, enemy, confidant, therapist. But in the final analysis, the agent is a professional whose goal is to facilitate a meeting of the minds between buyer and seller. Following are suggestions from agents to clients on how to keep the goal focused and the relationship professional. 1. Make it easy to show the house. This may seem obvious, but agents frequently run across the problem of sellers playing hard to get with their properties. Could be the seller is conflicted about selling—best to work that out in advance of calling the agent. “There are a lot of properties on the market,” said one Southampton agent. “If a house is too hard to show, the agent has a half dozen others like it to add to the list.”

Could be the seller has a tenant who is resistant to having the property shown for sale. My partner and I experienced this with a house in Sag Harbor that caught our eye. The owner was so bullied by his tenant that he walked on eggshells to get her to provide access. We ultimately took the house off our radar. Many sellers wait until tenants are out to actively market their homes—a good idea in many cases. If there is no tenant, the agent should have complete access to the property (key, lock box) with minimal notice. 2. Get out of the way. Most agents will tell you that the kiss of death is an owner/landlord who is present during open houses or showings. Homeowners tend to take things personally. They may hover annoyingly around buyers, trying to get a sense of their interest, or their approval of the décor. Owners may provide information that’s unnecessary, or of no interest to the buyer, or make a buyer feel like an intruder. One goal of a showing is to give buyers a chance to feel as though they’re already living in the house. It’s hard to do that when the owner is cooking dinner, folding laundry, working on the computer, et cetera. In our search, my partner and I went back to one house we liked three times. EVERY time the owner was there. We just never had a chance to envision the home as ours and moved on—as

the owners should have. 3. Take suggestions from the agent on how you might stage or position your home to make it more attractive to buyers. Suggestions may range from the pricing of your property (the absolutely most critical issue), to improving curb appeal, to getting an updated C/O, to having underground oil tanks removed, to taking down the 35 pictures of your cat. It’s a tight market. Supply is up, demand is not so much—but improving. Agents are on the front lines, and therefore well aware of what is selling and why. If the agent has a good track record in sales, trust that he or she is giving you informed advice. 4. Don’t ask the agent for straight out recommendations for attorneys, surveyors, etc. It is recommended to agents that they provide three suggestions—it protects them if things go awry with the person you ultimately choose, and protects them from suspicions that they are in cahoots with service professionals. But don’t be leery. Agents working and living in the Hamptons do tend to know the people (from attorneys to carpenters) who are reliable and (continued on next page)

day now, forever is going to be here. Every medical advance that came down the pike 30 years ago was embraced. Nothing was held back. We were on a mission to get everybody living forever. The costs, of course, of this unfettered, unlimited approach to taking care of your body soon hit a financial ceiling. So some new thoughts came down the pike. There had to be limits. Currently, we all know we are NOT going to live forever. Getting yourself frozen is no longer a goal for people. We have hospice. We have living wills. We have arrangements we make ahead of time for our final days. If we become comatose, there are others who will determine when the plug can get pulled. There is a time to die. A time to die with dignity. We’ve accepted it. So the financial crisis on that end has gone by the boards. But the diagnostic and the treatment costs have not been reigned in. There is what happened to me at Cedars Sinai just a year and a half ago. There is a spare no expense attitude

about keeping you healthy—we DESERVE it—and, if you get sick, a spare no expense attitude to bring you back to health. And it is okay, if you ask me, but there need to be limits and there are not. So the costs continue to skyrocket. I will leave you with this thought. The other day, somebody told me there is this new Israeli-made metal pill that takes pictures of the insides of your intestines. You put it in your mouth, swallow it, and for the next three hours until you pass it, it takes one picture every half-second tumbling around inside your body. It’s very expensive, but it’s a tremendous diagnostic tool for people with stomach trouble. The innards of this stainless steel pill are filled with the highest scientific technology imaginable. And of course, because it is so expensive, in every country in the world, it is reused. It gets passed. It gets cleaned and sterilized and then on it goes to the next person. Well, I am not being quite accurate. In every country in the world it gets reused, except one.

Baby Step in Empire/Hospital Dispute In the course of resumed contract negotiations, Empire BlueCross BlueShield and the East End Health Alliance (EEHA) have reached an agreement regarding their Mediblue members. Seniors with Empire Medicare Advantage “Mediblue” HMO and PPO products are assured continued in-network access to all three EEHA hospitals. Both Paul Connor, president and CEO of Eastern Long Island Hospital in Greenport and spokesman for the EEHA, and Mark Wagar, president and CEO of Empire BlueCross BlueShield, have expressed their happiness with coming to an agreement that assures coverage for senior East End residents. Wagar said he is pleased to ensure that “senior members have convenient access to their community hospital.” For Non-Mediblue Empire plan members all emergency care will continue to be covered as in-network. Also, some Empire members who live farther than 30 miles from a non-EEHA hospital may be able to continue to receive routine, non-emergency services with full in-network benefits from EEHA hospitals. For more information, call one of the

EEHA hospital’s special help lines: Eastern Long Island Hospital, 631-477-5100; Peconic Bay Medical Center, 631-574-8400; Southampton Hospital, 631-726-8555.

Here in America, the government has approved it, but after it is used by one person it has to be thrown away. Americans should not have to take a pill that, even though sterilized, has passed through somebody else. So yes, this pill is very expensive. But don’t worry. If a doctor orders it, insurance covers it. Doesn’t cost you a dime. Right?


(continued from previous page)

can help move the deal forward. 5. Don’t waste time. A main area of contention here are sellers who are slow to respond to agents’ questions. When the agent needs an answer from you—whether on something as simple as the amount of your water bill or your counter to an offer—time is of the essence. If you’re selling your property, it should be a priority in your life. In this market, time waits for no seller. Another time waster? Bad pricing. In boom markets, it’s not uncommon for people to put their houses on the market at high prices to see what bites. In this market, that strategy will bite you back. Serious buyers know that right pricing is critical to a sale. Sellers who haven’t become realistic to the new market should stay out of the water. This is not the time to go fishing.

The Sheltered Islander You have to ask yourself, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do I feel lucky today?â&#x20AC;? I caught the tail end of one of those â&#x20AC;&#x153;Millionaireâ&#x20AC;? shows the other night. The young male attorney, married with a baby, had just answered this question: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whose death was reported on the front page the first day of publication of USA Today?â&#x20AC;? The potential answer was one of the following actresses: Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Ida Lupino. The contestant took a guess and was right, it was Grace Kelly and he won $500,000. Let me be clear, he won one half of a million dollars guaranteed. He was asked if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to answer to next question for $1 million dollars, or leave now with the paltry sum of $500,000. If he got the next question wrong, he got nothing. His wife shook her head violently in the negative from the gallery. But, nooooooooo, he was feeling lucky... The million-dollar question was: â&#x20AC;&#x153;President Lyndon Johnson had four buttons installed on his desk to summon drinks he wanted. Three of the buttons were: coffee, tea, coke. What was the fourth button? Potential answers: Fresca, YooHoo, A&W Root Beer and V-8. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way to logically deduce thisâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you either know it or not. He guessed A&W. The right answer was Fresca. What do you think that car ride home was like? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m betting not a word was said. I bet his wife wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even be ready to talk to him till next May

at the earliest. Sex isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gonna happen for 10 years at least. She has to go through the five stages of grief after the death of all her dreams. The first stage is denial. She has to deny she married a moron who had a half a mil in his hands and tossed it for a 25% chance of winning a whole million. Because only a moron wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize that along with the 25% chance of winning a million was a 75% chance of winning bupkus, nada, nothing. The second stage is anger. I tried to imagine the anger Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d feel. I can only say that I know what would have happened if he were married to an Island woman. Shelter Island has a stupidity limit, past which homicide or exile are justified. His wife would calmly go to Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marina and purchase a new graphite fishing rod and a boat buoy. Returning home, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d walk up behind her man in his lounger and proceed to alternatively whip him with the rod and beat him with the buoy. If he had her arrested for assault, it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do any good because if he stood before a female judge, once she heard the story, it would take our whole police force of six men to pull her off of him because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be finishing the job with her gavel. If he stood before a male judge, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d only be granted a restraining order against his wife, and every other woman on the Island would beat him in a show of solidarity and as an example to the other men not to even think of being what I call â&#x20AC;&#x153;black hole stupid.â&#x20AC;? This is when a man is so inexplicably dense that light bends around him.

The third stage is bargaining. She has to think of what redeeming qualities her moron has that compensate for his little lapses in judgment here and there. Maybe he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain when asked to take out the garbage. Maybe he puts his dirty socks in the laundry. Maybe he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a face when she asks him to lift his legs while she vacuumsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which she would have a maid do if he had bothered to research favorite drinks of US presidents during the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s before betting half a million on the infinite knowledge in his brain. But letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not go there, because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be no way back. The fourth stage is depression. His wife will be depressed for a very long time. But sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll only think of his mistake whenever she writes the mortgage check, or has to budget groceries, or wants a new blouse, or calls a plumber or electrician for any repairs, or has any medical expenses, or has thoughts of affording a higher education for her children, or any number or those little thoughts that creep into our consciousness from time to time. The fifth stage is acceptance. In about 20 years, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll stop thinking about what could have been: a house, a new car, education, a boat, new underwear once a year, those small things that make life a little easier. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take what little money she can scrounge up and find a divorce attorney. Her two criteria for hire will be 1. Are you a licensed attorney? and 2. How do you feel about Fresca?

Agassi Makes an Appearance at Ross Grand Slam By T.J. Clemente The wonderful world of celebrity and charity once again came together in the Hamptons this weekend, this time at the Ross School in East Hampton where, during the “Ross School Grand Slam Winner Tennis Exhibition Match,” tennis legend Andre Agassi was helicoptered in to be honored. The proceeds of the benefit event and money raised by a silent auction are aimed to support education for underprivileged children. Agassi was introduced to the gathering by Michele Claeys, Head of School at Ross. The sports star was honored not for his vast tennis accomplishments including nine grand slams (the French Open, the United States Open, the Australian Open and Wimbledon among them), but for the work of the Andre Agassi Foundation which, in addition to world wide educational activities, funds Agassi Prep, a K12 school exclusively for the underprivileged children of Las Vegas. With just under 650 students, Agassi Prep just graduated its first senior class with a 100% graduation rate and 100% acceptance to secondary education. Agassi said, matter of factly, “I am proud of this school and the effort it makes on the lives of kids who otherwise, most likely would not have a chance in today’s world.” Dressed in black trousers and black tee shirt, Agassi answered questions from the young tennis players who took part in a clinic

Ross student Sailor Brinkley-Cook, Bollettieri, Agassi and student Brittany Page

led by Nick Bollettieri, (coach of Monica Seles, Agassi, Martina Hingis, Boris Becker, Jim Courier, the William sisters and many more). Bollettieri was assisted by Ross School Director of Tennis Programs Vinicius Carmo, (Number 1 singles player in Brazil and at University of Tennessee) and his staff. Alec Baldwin, Christie Brinkley, Michael Gelman, Luanne De Lesseps, Kelly Bensimon, Ramona Singer and Jim Zarin were on hand, applauding Agassi. Afterwards the celebrities showed off their tennis skills, with Baldwin displaying his cat-like quick movements. But the day belonged to Agassi. His frank answers to

unscripted questions from the children made my own scheduled interview easy. His favorite moment? “My last U.S. Open match,” when he was retiring. He said “The cheers, the love,” touched him, and his eyes welled up with tears recalling the memory. Most important win? The French Open, when, at age 29, his ranking down from 1 to 149 in the world, he managed to regain the fire to play tennis, this time for himself. He explained, “I was down two sets to love to Medvedev, and it didn’t look good. On an important point in the third set, I ran to net—which I never did and no one does on red clay. Out of position, he launched a rocket at my ankles. I desperately stabbed at it, knowing that if I lost this important game point, I would probably lose the match. When the ball luckily hit my racquet, it could have gone anywhere. It shot off my racquet and hit a line. I won that point and went on to win the championship.” When did he start playing tennis? He said, “My dad taped a ping pong racquet to my hand in my crib and had me swatting balloons, running around and saying, ‘see what a natural.’” So how did he acquire the best ground strokes in tennis history? “My dad bought a house in Las Vegas when I was like seven. Looking for a house to buy, he never even went inside, instead he would run to the yard and (continued on page 62)

Harborfest in Sag Next Weekend weekend days and Saturday afternoon will feature an Art Walk, thanks to the Tulla Booth Gallery and The Gallery in Sag Harbor. The Walk is a guided tour of the many galleries and art spaces Sag Harbor has to offer. A variety of concerts will take place throughout the day on Saturday, covering a range of genres and hopefully offering something for everyone. The Sag Harbor Community Band will perform in the afternoon followed by Wiggle Boy. Project Vibe will perform reggae later on in the evening. Sag Harbor’s many historical institutions will be well represented as well with a demonstration from the East End Classic Boat Society, tours of the Oakland Cemetery and historic buildings, an exhibit in the Annie Cooper Boyd House, and offerings from the Long Island Lighthouse Society. The Sag Harbor Farmers’ Market’s regular Saturday morning hours will be greatly extended and cover both weekend days. On Main Street, strollers can enjoy an earlier version of Sag Harbor’s Sidewalk Sale, which used to take place Columbus Day weekend, featuring local businesses and some tasty extras, including the LVIS bake sale. Other highlights include a Sunday morning 5K run, the annual Steinbeck movie screening, and an American Beauty sunset cruise. Through its diverse schedule Harborfest promises to offer something for everyone and to honor Sag Harbor’s history and community, past and present.

pull out a measuring tape to see if a tennis court would fit. Finally after many houses, he measured one that would,” he sighed. “We bought that house, built the tennis court and there he had me hit ground strokes before and after school—like 1,000 a day. My dad was a numbers guy. He said, if you hit a million ground strokes a year, who is going to beat a guy who hits a million ground strokes a year?” Agassi’s advice to tennis players of today, “Invest in yourself, your body and mind.” He explained that for the first half of his tennis career he was, “all talent with bad attitude.” He felt as if he was forced to play tennis, but when it all seemed to be slipping away by the age of 28, he said for the first time in his life, “I desired to play tennis for myself,” and rededicated his life to get back to the top— and he did. He told me, “I just want to make a difference in someone’s life. If I help just one life, then all this [Agassi Prep] is worthwhile.” He repeated the same words to the crowd, they applauded him, and he looked at the kids in the audience and said, “Everything you learn about yourself on a tennis court you take with you in life.” After a series of private conversations, Agassi was driven to a waiting helicopter. It should be mentioned that the exhibition match was played by Grand slam tennis players Rennae Stubbs, Murphy Jensen (at one time Agassi’s doubles partner) Petr Korda (a former #1 in the world) and Vinicius Carmo.

By Amelia Persans Now in its 19th year, the Sag Harbor Harborfest has continued to grow. The annual celebration of all things whaling and nautical has expanded to include all aspects of Sag Harbor’s history and community. The event is slated to take place the weekend of September 11, with festivities beginning Friday night and ending Sunday evening. Setting the tone for a weekend of events dedicated to Sag Harbor’s whaling prowess of another era is the Whaling Museum’s annual Lobster Bake Friday evening. The theme continues throughout the weekend with competitive whaleboat races off the Long Wharf. Male and female teams from local businesses and the community compete for the much sought after Whalers Cup. Last year, Bridgehampton Equipment Repair beat out the Corner Bar and Sag Harbor Liquors to win the championship for the women’s division, while Team Whalers beat out the Corner Bar and the John K. Ott team for the men’s. On Sunday, attendees can take their minds off the tension of the races with the concurrent clam shucking and clam chowder contests. The all-encompassing festival has plenty of events for kids as well, including face painting, tug of war competitions, potato sack races, a family concert Sunday evening and other fun activities. Music and art lovers have not been overlooked with art events and concerts peppering the weekend. An Arts and Crafts Fair, a new feature for Harborfest, will take place both

While volunteering so tirelessly, Dayton also held multiple jobs, took care of her own horse farm, and raised her two children, Jackson and Jean Dodds. On Tuesday, August 18, I attended the dedication of a bridle path in honor of Dayton. The Old Farm Trail that is the extension of Old Farm Road, is now officially referred to as The Dai Dayton Bridle Path. This path runs into the center of Dayton’s beloved Long Pond Greenbelt. If you follow this path for about one mile, it leads to the Crooked Pond Trail; a lovely shaded trail with Crooked Pond on your right and a short trail to the Nature Center on your left. Approximately 60 people attended this event and parked on the road shoulders of Haines Path and Old Farm Road. It’s a short distance up the path to a monument in the form of a hitching post. The plaque on the post reads “Dai Dayton Bridle Path, Dedicated in Honor of Her Ongoing Devotion to the Creation, Preservation and Stewardship of the Long Pond Greenbelt. Southampton Town Trustees, Southampton Trails Preservation Society 2009.” Southampton Town Councilwoman Nancy Graboski presented a proclamation from the Town on behalf of the supervisor and the council. President of the Southampton Town Trustees, Jon Semlear, presented a proclamation from the town trustees, all of whom were present. Glorian Berk, president of STPS, spoke on their behalf. William Uhlinger, president emeritus of the Nassau-Suffolk Horsemen’s Association, made a presentation on behalf of that organization. Also in attendance were many government and environmental representatives, too numerous to list here. Congratulations and thank you Dai Dayton for your tireless efforts on behalf of our trails!

every system in their home. Having the ability to check up on their house from the city through security cameras or being able to adjust motorized shades really makes a difference in a home.” Crescendo focuses in on the quality of their products, such as Lutron lighting and motorized shades, both of which give remote access from anywhere in the world via an internet connection. For the controls in the home, Crescendo utilizes Crestron controls, which streamline and simplify all of the technology in your home using an intuitive touch pad. Having this kind of control of your house has obvious “fun” and “cool” factors to it, but there are also very practical solutions to it as well, such as security. As Brody explains, “When people leave their homes and head back to the city, it can be obvious to a trespasser that they aren’t there because all the lights in the house are off or the television isn’t on. Many of our clients have their houses set in ‘away’ mode, which will turn the lights on at certain times to keep trespassers away.” The line of products Crescendo sells are among the best brands in the business.

By David Lion Rattiner One of the sexiest companies on the East End of Long Island is Crescendo Designs, owned and operated by Chris Brody. The company is a high-end audio/video and communication/control products company, that makes what was once thought to be science fiction possible. Feel like turning the heat up on your pool via your cell phone while driving out to the Hamptons? Crescendo can make that happen. Feel like being able to put all the shades down from your laptop in New York City? That’s not a problem. Feel like having every system in your house set to “party mode” where the lights, hvac, pool, spa and music systems all magically shift to the appropriate settings at the touch of a button via remote from your London office? That’s what the guys at Crescendo do everyday. The company, with its showroom in Southampton, was truly the pioneer in bringing high-end theater systems to estates in the Hamptons. If you’ve ever been to a home that has its own private theater, chances are, Brody and his employees at Crescendo installed it and have it running to perfection. As the business continues to expand and many clients with homes in New York City specifically asking for the care and experience Crescendo brings to their industry, the company appears to be hitting its, well, crescendo (sorry I couldn’t help it). “People absolutely love it when they realize that we can offer complete control remotely for nearly

DAN'S PAPERS, September 4, 2009 Page 81



By Susan Galardi

It’s Not About the Money ... “Do you have a rubber band? I want to carry my money the way they did in the old days.” After that, our son rolled up his dollars tightly, wrapped the rubber band around them, held them in his fist and squirreled them away in his cash register. Hudson loves money, and he understands it. Yet it seemed like only yesterday when he would pick up a few pennies and say, “I have two monies.” Now he’s figured out that four quarters make a dollar, that five singles get you one bill with a 5 on it, and that his $2.00 allowance isn’t worth much at all at the Five & Dime in Sag Harbor. In fact, he’s tried to use it as payola for his debts. Recently, when he exhibited less than stellar behavior, he said, “I know what my punishment should be. You can take my allowance this week.” It wasn’t because he felt he could pay for the glass that broke, it was because he knows that anything he wants costs more than $2.00, and if he plays his cards right, he’ll get it one way or another. For a few months, he saw the $2.00 as something special. He’d usually spend it on candy, or a REALLY cheap toy. But after a few trips to the Five & Dime, he realized those two crumpled bills weren’t gong to get him very far. Sometimes I’d throw in a few extra bucks. But what is that teaching him, I thought. So then I started letting him buy things on credit – if he got a $4.00 toy today, he wouldn’t get allowance next week. I quickly realized, with most Americans buried in debt, that maybe I should steer away from that mentality.

But I know that an allowance presents many opportunities to teach a child about money – about saving for something you really want, about value, about patience. But of course it’s even more than that. Like any interaction – from looking for rocks on the beach to reading a book – it’s a chance to weave more into the fabric of your relationship with your child. And I knew that how I responded to his actions would color that relationship. Would I act disapproving if he bought the cheap toy that broke on the way home? Would I be disappointed if he chose to blow the money on candy rather than save up for something of value? And

what is value to a six-year-old anyway? Maybe it’s just the thrill of choosing something on your own and being able to pay for it – without parental judgment (which for him, I’m sure, is defined by my mantra, “another piece of plastic to throw in a basket”). So maybe I should leave money lessons to the pros. Recently, I learned that Warren Buffett is launching a Secret Millionaires Club for kids – not six year olds, more like tweens and teens. The three- to five-minute episodes will launch on AOL sites before appearing elsewhere, according to Los Angeles-based A Squared. The segments teach kids about things like avoiding debt and investing. I checked one out. It started with a group of animated kids saying, “Hi Mr. Buffett.” An animated Buffett, looking like Mr. Magoo, answers “Hi everyone!” And the sing songy melody begins: “Secret friends with Warren Buffett He’s gonna teach me to do my best – learn to invest and have a lot of fun doin’ it, In the secret millionaires club…” In the following segment, the kids are at a board meeting led by Buffett, learning about things like what a brand is, how money is best used in a business, and whether or not the candy company is a good investment. It’s a great learning tool. I can’t wait until my son is old enough to understand it. Until then, I’ll try to smile when he buys the cheap toy and handfuls of candy. And as he reaches over the counter with his crumpled bills, I’ll enjoy the proud expression on his face. It’s something money just can’t buy.

Arts & Entertainment Theater Review: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at Gateway By Roy Bradbrook The original 1988 film starred Michael Caine and Steve Martin as two very dissimilar conmen working the same part of the French Riviera and their often bumbling, but invariably hilarious, antics made this a comedy to relish. When it opened on Broadway as a musical with John Lithgow and Norbert Lee Butz, it soon became another success, with many award nominations. The essence of the show is the counterpoint play between the two main characters, one usually portrayed as an urbane older sophisticate, with the

other a somewhat crazy and definitely rough edged young blood looking to beat the more experienced pro at his own game. For this production, staged at the Patchogue Theater, Gateway management decided to enlist the services of Joe Piscopo as its ‘star’ attraction in the role of the sophisticated swindler, Lawrence Jameson. Piscopo has an impressive track record, particularly with “Saturday Night Live” back in the early ‘80s, but as a self confessed “Jersey Boy,” don‘t expect too much urbanity. From the moment he first appears on stage, to an almost obligatory

round of applause, he stayed with a very fixed smile, which may have been the result of this being very early in the run and at a time when his efforts were centered on the need to remember lines and stage movement, something very different from the fixed scenario of a television studio. Hopefully, he will relax and show more of his acting skills as the run continues until September 12. By contrast, Harris Doran, as the rough and very ready Freddy Benson, brings frenetic energy to his role and he was undoubtedly the true star of this evening as he had the audience in fits of laughter. At one part of the show, he poses as Lawrence’s half crazed and sex addicted brother while Lawrence successfully persuades Jolene (Hallie Metcalfe), a former target who now has plans for a long-term future with him, that he really is not the man for her to marry and take back to her rich parents in deepest Oklahoma. Then the two men compete to win her affections and the money of Christine, an apparently ingenuous heiress from the deepest mid west, with the loser agreeing to leave the territory to the winner. Lawrence, seeking a sympathetic response from Christine, pretends to have suffered the loss of use of his lower body, while Piscopo counters this by assuming the persona of a fictitious Dr. Shuffhausen, who claims to be able to make Freddy miraculously cured. These two scenarios produce some really funny moments often requiring lots of energy and agility and resistance to pain from Doran’s characters. Nell Mooney (“As the World Turns”) looks good as Christine, but sounded very shrill. Piscopo has one opportunity to show a little of his ‘Sinatra’ style in an appealing ballad, “Love Sneaks In,” but this is not a show where you are likely to come away with the musical numbers running through your mind. Among the supporting cast, Nathan Klau as Andre and Rebecca Baxter as Muriel make an initially ill matched pair who go from lust to love and work very well together. The ensemble cast dances well throughout the show. The sets work very well in portraying the ambience of the French Riviera, the lighting is excellent and the charming costumes fit the era of a story line that produces some interesting twists – but you really should see the show to find out how it all ends!

Earle, Moorer at PAC


Grammy Award-winning, politically charged folk-rocker Steve Earle and his country-tinged singer-songwriter wife Allison Moorer will be heading to the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on September 6. Respective songwriters and performers in their own right, these New York City based musicians – after years based in the South – will take the stage together on the East End. Earle’s latest project, released last spring, is an album of Townes Van Zandt covers, a tribute to his deceased friend and mentor. Moorer will be recording a new album this month in Nashville. For more information on Earle, go to For more info on Moorer, go to The show starts at 8:30 p.m. at WHBPAC. Tickets are $85/$70/$55. To purchase tickets, go to or call 631-288-1500.

Burn the Floor on Broadway The first show of the new Broadway season, Burn the Floor, is an electrifying Latin and ballroom dance spectacular, a pulse racing showcase of thrilling dance and gorgeous dancers that is sure to send your libido into overdrive. Twenty stunning dancers set the floor ablaze with a sexy display of non-stop bodies in motion, which will leave you breathless. George Bernard Shaw once remarked that dance “is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire,” and the cast of Burn the Floor sets out to prove his point in spades. The passion of these dancers has been exciting audiences in over 30 countries years before “Dancing with the Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance” turned ballroom dancing into popular television fare and now this dance spectacular is here on Broadway in an intimate venue. Burn the Floor was first conceived as a special performance for Sir Elton John’s 50th birthday celebration in 1997, and the show made its world premiere in the United Kingdom two years later. Making its United States premiere, the evening created, directed and choreographed by Jason Gilkison, a former Latin and ballroom dancer, features 18 award-winning dancers from around the world. Joining them for a limited time are special guest stars Maxsim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff from ABC’s hit show “Dancing with the Stars,” who will be replaced at their departure by Anya Garnis and Pasha Kovalev, who appeared on

that steamed up the stage of the Latin Quarter. This drama of dance takes the audience on a journey that represents all 10 of the international competitive dance styles including the elegance of the Viennese Waltz, the exuberance of Jive and the intensity of the Paso Doble, as well as the Tango, Samba, Mambo, Quickstep and Swing. The revue-like show is broken down into four segments danced to the invigorating live music of two percussionists, a horn player and a guitarist/fiddle player, which is amplified by pre-recorded music. Some songs feature the vocals of Rebecca Tapia and Ricky Rojas. The evening hits a high point with an infectious cha cha to “Turn the Beat Around” and the finale is an amazing crescendo of hypnotic moves orchestrated to Tina Turner’s version of “Proud Mary.” And if you are able to keep your tooshie in your seat you are a more self controlled spirit than this enthusiastic critic. Burn The Floor is playing on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre, 220 West 48th Street, Tuesday through Sunday. For tickets and more information contact or call 212-239-6200.

caption 9 FOX TV’s “So You Think You Can Dance.” The aweinspiring cast of 18 champion ballroom dancers with more than 100 dance titles give a sensual spine tingling execution of Gilkison’s artistic vision of ballroom dance with a sexy 21st century edge and the energy of a rock and roll production. The evening begins with the scantily costumed performers taking intensely arresting poses in the aisles, but the structural concept follows the 20th century decade by decade. Beginning with the jazzy hot nights of Harlem’s Savoy, where dances like the Lindy, Foxtrot and Charleston were born, the show moves on to the Cha-Cha, Rumba and Salsa, dances

Food / Dining Simple Art of Cooking Silvia Lehrer Cocktail parties to toast whatever is left of the summer season appear to be the party of choice this Labor Day weekend. Cocktails and hors d’ouevres are always a jolly idea. Hosts offering an assortment of bite size appetizers or small dishes that can be nibbled over hours create the effect of a long meal, giving the party a celebratory feeling. Along with food is drink. Roman Roth, winemaker of Wolffer Estate Vineyards in Sagaponack, has created through his Grapes of Roth label, a deliciously dry version of a 2008 Riesling. The site of the vineyard on the North Fork is very dry, which stresses the vines resulting in smaller berries typical of a classic Riesling. This refreshing, aromatic wine, with low alcohol and just six grams of residual sugar, is very food friendly, making it ideal as an aperitif. The wines label honors Roman’s mother, with a picture of her, at age 19, holding up a glass of wine, and whose comment on the label reads, “Life’s too short to drink bad wine.” Not to be daunted by the official end of summer, share the joy with cherished family and friends. And perhaps Indian summer will not be far behind. LEMON MARINATED SHRIMP ON SKEWERS Skewered shrimp makes perfect cocktail party fare.

Food / Dining

Restaurant Review: Harbor Bistro, East Hampton By Susan M. Galardi I’ve found the sleeper restaurant of the summer. It’s called The Harbor Bistro. What’s amazing to me is that this is its fourth season on the marina on Three Mile Harbor Road in East Hampton. So why hadn’t I gone there? First, that particular spot has housed many restaurants over the years – some less than stellar. So the Harbor Bistro had to overcome its venue like an A-list singer performing at a piano bar. Second, “bistro” to me sounds casual, insinuating that the food is “casual” too. When I finally did make it there (last Friday) I chose to sit in the outdoor deck area that faces the marina and the sunset. It’s a very casual space – plastic tables and chairs – keeping expectations low. Then we tried the food, and all the myths and preconceptions were dispelled. It was an eye-rolling experience – the swooning kind of eye rolling that happens when you taste a dish that is so carefully prepared, so perfectly balanced that you could faint. For my money, Damien O’Donnell (Culinary Institute of America, The Palm, James Lane Café, Cite, and Tao), the young partner/executive chef at Harbor, has to have one of the most refined palates out here, as well as an acute ability to execute his ideas to the letter. Other restaurants out here have food of this caliber, and they charge for it. But the tariff at Harbor Bistro is reasonable by Hampton standards. Appetizers range from $8 for Lobster Bisque to $17 for the outrageous Kataifi Lobster Bundles. Main course pastas are in the low $20s, most of the meat and fish entrées are in the mid to upper $20 range –

only a few entrées top the $30 mark. A $29 “Before the Sunset” Prix Fixe is available all night at the bar, and in the dining room from 5 to 6 p.m. in season. It includes a good, varied selection from the menu for each course. We started with the Lobster Bundles. Two wiry mounds came on a plate with ribbons of sauce – a smoky, spiced sesame aioli, and one sweeter. The crunch, as it turned out, was thinly sliced phyllo dough. The lobster melange was sweet and toothsome, the fresh citrus slaw a bright contrast. I can’t compare the dish to anything I’ve ever eaten. It is unusual and quite amazing. Slow Cooked Duck & Mushroom Crepes ($14) served with sun dried tomato-goat cheese on top and a fresh herb salad on the side was a rich, meaty appetizer. The duck is first marinated then sautéed, the goat cheese added to the overall dimensions of the dish, and the salad, with delicate slices of tangerine and grapfruit, popped with the bright lemony dressing. Another winner. The next appetizer, a special, was a surf and turf of another world. On one side were slices of Kobe beef in a multi-dimensional glaze, served with a ragu of asparagus tips, tomatoes and mushrooms. In the other corner was a lump lobster corn cake with mango salsa – complex, perfect pairings of flavor and texture. This is a theme through O’Donnell’s offerings: he knows when to stop. Even though each dish is layered in flavor and texture, it never creates that gastronomic overload associated with too adventurous chefs. For the main course, we tried the Sautéed Day Boat

Halibut ($29). The fish was firm, moist, perfect. The subtly flavored couscous (in a classic veloute sauce, seasoned with Thai basil) with barely cooked, crunchy peas gave it an Asian flair. Lime Grilled Local “Catch” – which that day was Sea Bass – was served with Leeks, Sweet Local Corn, Lump Crab, and a Tomato-Chipotle Broth that imparted a sweet, smoky flavor. This home run of an entrée would make any meat eater happy – the fish and flavors had so much substance. We tried several of O’Donnell’s hand made desserts (from $7 to $9), including the simple, perfectly sweet/bitter Chocolate, chocolate cake; rich warm Almond Cake; a sinful yet not sweet Banana Bread Pudding – warm chunks of cooked banana, chewy bread, macadamia nuts; and profiterol. One swoon after another. The restaurant’s wine list showcases small batch wine producers from around the world and local East End selections. I tried one, told our server what I didn’t like about it, and she said, “I know what you’ll like.” She brought me something else and was dead on. And that’s another surprise about Harbor Bistro. When was the last time at a Hamptons restaurant that you requested a server? People do at Harbor. Our server, Teresa, made us feel calm and welcomed from the beginning. She clearly knows the food and the wine, and, more so, knows that when people come to a restaurant they don’t want to be given the bum’s rush. By the way, the harbor view from the casual deck is spectacular, and the inside dining room is elegant. Harbor Bistro is open until October 30. Make a reservation – apparently a lot of people are already big fans. And now you’ll have to fight me for a table, too. Harbor Bistro, 313 Three Mile Harbor Road, East Hampton, NY 11937 631-324-7300

3. Rinse the eggplant cubes many times under cold running water, then pat dry with paper towels. Heat the olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. When the oil is moderately hot, about 300 degrees, add the eggplant cubes, preferably in a single layer, and cook, covered, for 3 to 4 minutes. By that time the lower part of the eggplant should have a thin golden crust. Turn the eggplant cubes over, cover the skillet, and cook for 3-4 minutes more. Sprinkle the garlic mixture over the eggplant and a little salt and pepper and mix very well with a wooden spoon. Some cubes may fall apart, which is alright. Keep cooking until all the cubes are soft. With a skimmer transfer the eggplant to a crockery or glass bowl. Add the parsley leaves to the eggplant and mix again. Immediately place the eggplant mixture over the slices of bread and serve. This dish may be served as an appetizer or a vegetable, but should always be warm. CROSTINI Crostini is a mini version of bruschetta, the Italian grilled or toasty bread slices dressed with a garlic rub and extra-virgin olive oil. 1 narrow crusty baguette 1 large clove garlic, halved lengthwise with skin intact Extra-virgin olive oil Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut the baguette on the diagonal into 1/4-inch slices. Place on a cookie sheet, one layer deep and bake for 7-8 minutes or until breads are a pale golden brown. Remove from oven and while still hot rub the cut side of the clove over each bread slice, then drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil. Crostini can be prepared ahead, cooled and stored in a clean cookie tin. Serve as is or with a topping of your choice.

North Fork WineGuide It’s All Applause For Long Island Wine Country By Maria Orlando Pietromonaco Let’s give a standing ovation for LI wine country. We have come a long way since the first grape seedlings and 2009 proved to be a great year for recognition with some high honors given for our bottled babies born from our east end vines. This triumph emanates from none other than the passionate and dedicated proprietors and producers behind these winning wines. The first shout goes out to Waters Crest Winery, the dark horse of the North Fork whose obscurity only seems to heighten its appeal. This little gem, somewhat sequestered off the main drag on the Tasting House Highway, has taken on some pretty impressive accolades this year. Their 2007 Night Watch, an ice-style blend, took the Gold Medal “Best In Class” in the highly regarded Los Angeles International Wine and

Spirits Competition. Their Private Reserve of 2006 Cab Franc stepped up to the plate as well, winning the Platinum at the 6th Annual Critics Challenge in San Diego. Both of these events feature rivals from the immortal wine empires of France, California, Italy, and more: not too shabby. Macari Vineyards held its own this year with a noble collection of medals. In the “Best of Appellation,” a competition that compares wines within an “appellation,” or certain wine-growing region, Macari was decorated with a Double Gold for their 2005 Reserve Merlot and a Gold for the 2004 Reserve Merlot. The New York Wine & Food Classic, who some refer to as the “Oscars” of the wine industry, awarded them Silvers for the Merlot Reserve 2005 and Rose 2008, with Bronzes trailing in for the Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Malbec 2007, and Early

2008. Kudos to the matriarch of the region, Castello Di Borghese, who walked away with four top honors at the 2009 “Best of Appellation” awards: a Double Gold for their Merlot 2003, and a Gold for their Pinot Noir 2005, Sauvignon Blanc 2007 and Cabernet Franc 2004. They also took a Gold for their 2008 Riesling at the New York Wine and Food Classic. The grape gods at Pindar, the obvious, formidable force on the east end scene, tucked quite a few under their belt this year. Their 2007 Riesling swept the industry, placing in the top three at every event it entered (nine to be exact). Golds were given at the New World International Wine Competition in Ontario, the New York Wine & Food Classic, and the Amenti del Vino. The Riesling took the Double Gold at the International Eastern Wine Competition. Lieb Family Cellars had a stellar year with a decent array of awards, topping off with a Gold for their 2007 Bridge Lane Chardonnay in the 2009 Grand Harvest Awards. The Finger Lakes International Competition was good to them with Silver medals given for their 2004 Reserve Merlot and 2005 Meritage, and Bronze going to their 2006 Reserve Chardonnay, 2007 Bridge Lane Chardonnay, and 2007 Pinot Blanc. They also placed in the Florida State Fair and International Eastern Competition. Other worthy mentions go to: Martha Clara for a Double Gold taken for the ’05 Five-O Red Blend at the Best of Appellation; Wolffer for their Late Harvest Chardonnay, named “Best Dessert Wine” at the San Diego International Wine Competition; Sparkling Pointe’s 2000 Brut Seduction awarded “Best of Class” in San Diego; and Palmer’s 2007 Cabernet Franc Dessert Wine and 2006 Cabernet Franc, which both took home Gold medals at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition. It’s this kind of world class wine that is making and has made The North Fork of Long Island one of the best wine regions in the world. Year after year, the North Fork delivers stand out wines that win countless awards and countless new fans who come back to the vineyards in their backyards, just a few hours from New York City and just a few minutes to some of the best outdoor recreation the world can offer.

North Fork WineGuide Talking With Raphael’s Richard Olsen-Harbich By Lenn Thompson Raphael’s Richard Olsen-Harbich is a veteran winemaker who has seen nearly 30 vintages come and go as a member of the Long Island wine community. Along the way, he has seen styles change, sauvignon blanc emerge as the white wine future of Long Island and has authored all three local Federal American Viticultural Areas (AVAs) on Long Island — “The North Fork of Long Island,” “The Hamptons, Long Island” and “Long Island.” Rich is also a founding member of the Long Island Merlot Alliance, Long Island’s first wine quality alliance, which was formed in 2005 and is dedicated to the advancement of quality merlot production on the East End. Rich also sits on the advisory board for wine and grape research at the Cornell University/Long Island Horticultural Research and Extension Center in Riverhead, N.Y. and has also served on the Board of Directors for the New York State Wine and Grape Foundation. Rather than ask Rich about his time at Raphael, I thought it’d be fun to hear a bit more about him, what he likes in a wine and his thoughts on the industry itself. What (and where) was the first bottle of wine you remember drinking? From as early as I can remember the first wines I had were from my grandparents’ hometown in the Nahe in Germany. They were white and a little

sweet and I always got a little taste when my parents were pouring them. What event/bottle/etc made you decide that you wanted to be in the wine industry? It was a bottle of Hermann J Wiemer 1979 Riesling that I drank with the love of my life — my now-wife Nancy, in Ithaca back in 1981. I remember telling her that that was what I wanted to do. It was a seminal moment in my life on all fronts. Which of your current wines is your favorite and why? That’s a tough question. Like your kids, it

depends on the day. Out of our current releases I really do like our 2007 Cabernet Franc. It was the best year I’ve ever seen for that variety. What is the best thing about the Long Island wine community? All the intelligent and passionate people who I have become good friends in my life from the industry. What is the most frustrating thing about the Long Island wine community? Trying to get everybody on the same page with regard to wine quality initiatives. What is your favorite combination of local food with local wine? Roast Long Island Cresent duck with a local merlot — although lobster from Mattituck with a local sauvignon blanc blanc is right up there. 10 years from now, what will be happening in Long Island wine that we might not expect today? If I had those kinds of abilities I’d be on Wall Street! But seriously I think the future I see is expected — which is that our vines will be older, we’ll all be wiser and the wines will be even better than they are today. What is your ideal combination of wine, locations, food, company that adds up to the ultimate wine experience? There are a lot of choices but ultimately it is about being with the people you love. Aside from that nothing else really matters.

North Fork WineGuide Tweeds Restaurant Is A Trip Back Through Time By T.J. Clemente They say that you can, “Experience the oldest hotel and restaurant on the North Fork,” when the promotional staff of Tweeds Restaurant and Buffalo Bar advertise. They are right. The John J. Sullivan Hotel, built in the 1896 circa stands tall and next to Tweeds. Ed Tuccio, the proprietor, is a legend in Riverhead, and very influential behind the scenes in almost everything that happens in that town. Tweeds is almost like his clubhouse where he entertains his dearest friends and that alone insures the highest quality of service, food and atmosphere. Anthony Coates, who manages Tweeds, smiles as he pointed to his boss saying, “He sets a high standard in everything he does, and he is such a great guy.” Ed Tuccio was a pioneer in bringing back the American Bison. He has the largest herd east of the Mississippi and therefore the menu boasts both Bison steaks and Bison burgers. Mr. Coates stated that chef ’s Peter Cook and Jeff Trujillo are skilled and trained to delight you with their magic in the kitchen, the notable dishes are; Bison rib eye, Tweeds bison, always fresh seafood, one pound burgers at night, Bison burgers, local duck, and Asian tuna salad. They do outside catering through the entity of Dark Horse Catering, just recently doing an event for Hillary and Bill Clinton. Besides the entire historical ambiance that reminds one of the Queen Victoria Bar in Cody Wyoming, once actually owned by Buffalo Bill, Tweeds also has the wonderful Andrew Wargo on the piano. Tweeds presents live jazz on Friday and Saturday evenings and American standards on

1 1 th

Sunday. The establishment is named after notorious New York City son, Boss Tweed, who was a flamboyant political leader of that city during the 19th century. The bar was once Governor Al Smith’s unofficial political headquarters. It still serves as an unofficial political clubhouse for county officials, including the county executive, judges, people from the D.A.’s offices, Riverhead town officials and county representatives. Deals are done over bison burgers, and beers at the bar or on the wonderful private and elegant tables all under the eyes of the mounted bison head high up on the wall. In the front of the tavern is a stone marker engraved and placed there by no one other than Benjamin Franklin himself in the 1750s to part a mailing route to Orient. When I went there, my mission was to have my first Bison rib eye. Brian Miller, my waiter, recommended medium rare, as did Ed Tuccio himself.

Along with my date, Cindi Samone-Braf, we excitedly anticipated our first taste of this American classic. It was sensational. Cindi smiled and said, “Now you know why the Indians hunted the Buffalo, they knew it tasted this good.” We left nothing for the dog. After sharing a wonderful carrot cake desert and a few sips of coffee we stayed and enjoyed just being in Tweeds. The place is just so comfortable in every way. It is quaint Americana in the authentic. It is soothing just to be inside. Ed Tuccio somehow has recaptured the feeling of small town big time hotel eating, as if you are having your first good meal after a long stagecoach ride across the great plains. Cindi said, “It’s like a time machine in here.” The Victorian chandeliers, the authentic stained glass, the mahogany and marble bar constructed for the 1893 world’s fair in Chicago, along with the last Bison hunted by Teddy Roosevelt in the Dakota “Badlands.” The oak mantled fireplace yearns for your attention. Priced smartly so that one can bring the whole family, many do. With parking easily available in the municipal parking lot in the rear of the hotel and restaurant, it is also available on the street in front. Tweeds is located in the heart of the Riverhead Historic District with the actual Address being 17 East Main Street, near where Route 24 runs into Riverheads Main Street. Through Tweed’s, outdoor special occasions can be catered that are held at North Quarter Farm where 85 buffalo roam the two acre farm. It may be noted that the bar is itself a work of art and it is a great place for a date or to meet the buddies and gals or to just go watch a ball game. , 631-208-3151.

North Fork WineGuide The Old Mill Inn Offers Beautiful Dining By Susan M. Galardi Old Mill Inn is a historic, former grist mill built in 1820 on the Mattituck Inlet. But most people know the place as a beautiful dining spot known for its fresh local food from farm and sea, that you can approach by land or water, docking your boat right at the outdoor dining deck. In 2006, the restaurant changed hands when Barbara Pepe, Bia Lowe, Greta Van Susteren and Elaine Lafferty bought it, and continued the tradition of an inn on the water. The spot doesn’t feel like the Hamptons. It doesn’t even feel like the North Fork. To us, it felt like the serene, quiet restaurants in Chincoteague. Sitting out on the deck, perched above the water, we heard only the sounds of the resident osprey whistling and a few ducks quacking. This is a vacation from your vacation. This year, the owners brought on a new chef, John Nordin, from Yale, who is having a good time with the super fresh local ingredients – a must at the Old Mill, which considers itself a slow food restaurant. (It is also one of the only certified “green” restaurants on the North Fork.) The lobster comes in fresh from a purveyor across the inlet. The corn is from Harbes – arguably the best on the North Fork. The establishment’s specialty, not surprisingly, is fish – particularly it’s raw bar, daily specials, and some of the best New England clam chowder I’ve had this season. The watchwords for The Old Mill are just that: fresh and simple. The best things on the menu keep within that mission. Soups, salads and small plates, range from $5 for soup to $24 for a dozen oysters, and also include Moules Frites, fried calamari, and the popular raw shellfish. We started with the award-winning clam chowder. It arrived at the table along with a full, fresh bouquet that wafted from the bowl. It had a rich

color and apetizing consistency – a light sauce rather than the pasty white flour/milk concoction – with chunks of smooth potato, bits of smoked bacon, slivers of celery, a hint of sherry, and plenty of chopped clams. Just delicious. The Grilled Freshwater Prawn appetizer was another good choice. Four firm, juicy prawns came on a skewer, shining with a sweet/hot Asian chili glaze. Alongside was a farm fresh greens salad with raspberry vinaigrette that tasted like the berries were fresh picked. Nice combo. Main courses at the Old Mill range from $14 for the Black Angus Burger, to pastas in the mid $20 range, to rib eye, filet mignon and seafood fra diavolo in the low $30s – pretty reasonable for this unique option for waterfront dining. For main courses we tried two specials. The pan seared scallops were plentiful and perfect, lazing atop a skim of green chili beurre blanc sauce. There was just enough chili to make it interesting, without overpowering the delicate scallops. They were served with an ample, round polenta cake infused with flavor from sun dried tomatoes. The entire cake was fried, not necessary, in my opinion, and topped with most delicate spinach, barely wilted and dressed with garlic and oil. Another special was broiled flounder. I know I know. Broiled flounder. This simple dish has been abused by every hotel chain in the world. But when you’re faced with a ridiculously fresh, snow-white filet, sprinkled with paprika and broiled with butter, life doesn’t get much better. This was an enormous piece of fish – flaky, moist and toothsome. It was served with sticky

jasmine rice, and atop sliced shitake mushrooms sautéed with chopped bok choy – that combination tasted much more rich than its simple, lowcal ingredients implied. There’s also a very good kids’ menu. I find it annoying when restaurants drop the ball on quality for children’s fare. This was not the case here with the chicken fingers and fries. The report from the young diner at our table was, “The breading is crunchy. The meat is usually rough, hard and dry. This is soft and juicy.” I’d put these on the menu as an appetizer. Desserts were all about cake – we ordered a tall slice of the red velvet skyscraper, moist, not too sweet and with a cream cheese frosting. It was $10, billed as a “Dessert for Two!” I’d say it could go four ways with no complaints. Wines by the glass, a small but good international selection, ranged from $7-11.00, and wines by the bottle followed suit. The restaurant is open until its New Year’s bash – worth a trip there to experience it in the winter. I can imagine it is spectacular. But right now is the best time to go. Every Wednesday and Sunday night through September, the Old Mill offers a one-hour cruise down the inlet to the Sound, just in time for sunset, for $20. Those who opt to take the cruise can also take advantage of a $30 Prix Fixe that includes soup or salad, a main course from the regular menu, dessert, coffee or tea. The Old Mill Inn: 5775 West Mill Road, Mattituck, North Fork. 631-298-8080. Open for lunch (noon-4) and dinner Wednesday through Monday (5-9, till 10 on Saturdays).

Over The Barrel... with Lenn Thompson

North Fork WineGuide

A Review Of SURU, A New North Fork Label Winemakers launching their own labels is part of the evolution and maturation of a wine region. A few years ago, Roman Roth, best known as winemaker at Wolffer Estate Vineyards in Sagaponack debuted his Grapes of Roth label. Now, another of Long Islands veteran winemakers has created his own label. Russell Hearn, winemaker at Pellegrini Vineyards, partner in Premium Wine Group and founding member of the Long Island Merlot Alliance has, along with his wife Susan,

launched his own label: SURU (SUsan and RUssell and as you can see, the logo is framed by an H for their surname) The new line includes a riesling, pinot Grigio, rose of shiraz and a red blend labeled simply “Red.” Although the Hearns have their own 17-acre vineyard in Matittuck, where they grow merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot, the Hearns plan to “source fruit from New York vineyards...where (grapes) are grown best.” That means that his

riesling was made from grapes grown in the Gold Seal vineyard on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake. And some fruit from that same vineyard found its way into his pinot grigio as well. All four wines are bottled under screwcap and are meant to be immediately approachable. The Finger Lakes region in upstate New York consistently produces some of the best riesling in the country, so it only make sense that Russell would source fruit from there. The SURU 2008 Riesling ($15) is a delicate, focused wine with light floral aromas bringing complexity to a nose dominated by grapefruit, green apple and kafir lime leaf. Lithe and dry, the palate offers restrained, almost delicate flavors that closely match the nose with the addition of subtle apricot and mineral components. 2008 may prove to be a banner year for Finger Lakes riesling, and while this is a bit less expressive than others I’ve had, it’s still well balanced and refreshing. Pinot Grigio rarely excites and often disappoints. It’s too easy to fall into the one-dimensional “water with lemon” style popularized by big Italian producers. SURU 2008 Pinot Grigio ($15), made with fruit grown on the North Fork and up on Seneca Lakes, dodges that pitfall nicely, with ripe pear and citrus aromas leading into a medium-bodied palate with crisp pear, more citrus and a lightly minerally finish that lingers longer than you’re probably used to. For $15, it’s a terrific thirst-quencher. SURU 2008 Shiraz Rose ($15), is actually a blend of 84% shiraz, 7% cabernet franc, 6% riesling, 2% chardonnay and 1% petit verdot. That large shiraz component definitely makes it stand out among Long Island roses. Medium-dark pink in the glass, the nose offers ripe red berry aromas accented by citrus and white pepper spice notes. Bolder and more full bodied than many local roses, it fills the mouth with fruity flavors of red cherry, strawberry, red apple, melon and nice black pepper spice notes. As it warms to room temperature, there is a subtle honeydew note that emerges. The acidity is good, but not especially lively. A bit of an enigma to me, the SURU 2007 Red ($20) is an intensely aromatic blend of 82% merlot, 9% petit verdot, 5% cabernet sauvignon, 2% cabernet franc and 2% shiraz, all grown in the Hearn’s own vineyard on the North Fork save the shiraz, which came from the Lazy Dog Vineyard in Cutchogue. The nose is big and expressive, showing dense black cherry and blueberry aromas with hints of tobacco, spice and licorice. The palate is similarly full-bodied, but also a bit disjointed and a bit one-dimensional right now. My notes say “Where’s the fruit?” because little of the intense dark fruit character was there on day one of my tasting. Instead, the palate was showing mostly tobacco and spice flavors, was pretty tannic and even a little hot on the finish. By day two, more of the blueberry-black cherry fruit had emerged, seeming to soften the tannins a bit. There was still a little heat on the finish however. I’d recommend decanting this one for at least a few hours. Look for these in local wine shops.

North Fork WineGuide Supporting The Good People Of The Long Island Wine Industry Rosengarten, Food TV personality, cookbook author and food & wine writer. The wine industry on Long Island has created an enormous opportunity for job growth and job creation for people that are passionate about wine. The vineyards on the North Fork bring to the people that live there the pride and dignity that they have in what they offer to the world. It’s important to support the wine industry, not just because you should, but because you want to and love

to have such gorgeous vineyards in your backyard. Other than buying wine, the Long Island Wine Council has two specific ways you can support it. You can join the Long Island Wine Ambassadors, a volunteer group which assists with regional pours, distribution of marketing materials, events and administration and you can also ask for some restaurant calling cards, which you keep in your wallet or your purse and leave behind with your check when dining out at a restaurant that has no Long Island wine on the menu. If you want to get involved in doing this you can do so by calling 631-722-2220 or you can email Whether you are in the mood for a tasting, a tour or want to buy a whole case of wine to keep at home, we’ll see you at the vineyard.

By David Lion Rattiner It is the people on the North Fork and in the Long Island Wine industry that deserve true recognition for its success. People such as Chris Balz, who is the President of the Long Island Wine Council and owner of The Old Field Vineyards, Ron Goerler Jr., Vice President of the Long Island Wine Council and owner of Jamesport Vineyards, James Waters who is the Treasurer and also the owner of Waters Crest Winery and other important members and leaders of the Long Island Wine Community. It is these people, who dedicate themselves over and over, year after year, to making sure that Long Island Wine and North Fork Wine is the best that it can be and that as many people in the world know about it. Thanks to good people like, Sal Diliberto, owner of the Dilberto Winery, Dr. Dan Damianos, owner of Pindar, Jackie Entenmann, owner of Martha Clara Vineyards, Larry Perrine, owner of Channing Daughters Winery and Roman Roth, owner of The Grapes of Roth, so much has been accomplished for Long Island Wine in a very short time. All of these good people are memebers of The Long Island Wine Council, which is an industry association dedicated to achieving recognition for Long Island as a premium wine producing region. Its role is to provide a coordinated effort for the promotion and development of the region's wine industry. The Council was founded in 1989 and currently has 40 full members. The Long Island Wine Council has 37 member wineries. There are 35 tasting rooms open to the public, 2 by appointment only and 1 soon to be opened. The wineries open to the public have 29 locations on the North Fork, 3 on the South Fork, 2 elsewhere in Suffolk County and 1 in Brooklyn. But why is Long Island Wine so special? What makes it unique and why does it grow in size and in interest year after year? According to the Long Island Council’s website, in little over quarter of a century, the Long Island wine industry has grown from one small vineyard to 3,000 acres of vines and over thirty wineries producing world-class wines. Our maritime climate, geography and soil characteristics provide ideal conditions for producing wines of exceptional quality. The majority of the wineries and vineyards are on the East End on the North Fork, and thanks to age-old growing techniques with with state-of-the-art technology, the North Fork and the South Fork of Long Island have been able to produce a range of world-class wines from specific varietals and selected blends. It has been said by many that Long Island is one of the country's most exciting wine producing regions today, with great reviews and high praise found in major food and wine publications nationwide. As the awards continue to accumulate, Long Island wines are increasingly sought after in fine restaurants and wine shops from coast to coast. A tour of the Long island wine region is a special experience, offering an opportunity to sample and purchase award winning wines directly from producers while enjoying beautiful scenery, comfortable hotels and romantic bed & breakfasts, great food, and a wide range of sports, leisure and entertainment activities. You can discover why experts are saying “the enchanted East End of Long Island has become one of the world’s great vineyard regions.” David

DAN'S PAPERS, September 4, 2009 Page 99

Letters JUST WALKIN’ A DOG Dear Dan, I thought you would be very interested in a summons I received Sunday morning just east of the Two Mile Hollow beach before 9 a.m. I have color photos and diagrams, which I intend to enlarge as evidence and I intend to fight this. I have attached some photos. If you have a fax, I can send over my photos with diagrams on them. As you are probably aware there are snow fences running perpendicular to the beach all over with signs banning trucks and in most places dogs from walking beyond due to fenced plover nesting areas. Effectively, one can no longer walk for even ten minutes in a straight line anywhere with your dog. I guess one could walk back and forth the short distances between the fences, but this would be extremely boring. One of the reasons I chose to walk east of Two Mile Hollow was that the only sign I saw said “No Trucks.” Also, last summer at Indian Wells beach, a town police officer told me that I could walk past the fence if my dog was on a leash or under my control along the water line. As you will see in the photos, the tide was quite low on Sunday morning. A youngster in a police uniform (I am being kind here) by the name of John O’Rourke riding a shiny blue police ATV stopped me as I was passing well below the fence along the water line in the wet sand and said that he had to give me a ticket as he had observed me walking my dog beyond the fence. I told him that he did not have to give me a ticket, but could give me a warning instead as I did not see a sign that restricted dogs beyond that point. He then pointed to a sign way up at the other end of the fence that I could not see. When I walked close I could see that the sign actually was turned toward the dunes. I need to add here that my dogs are 14 and 12. My 14-year-old has recently recovered from vestibular disease and walks with difficulty. At no time did my dogs venture near the fenced off nesting area. Their bird chasing days are over…but I digress. Mr. O’Rourke slowly followed us to my car where our parade was starting to draw a crowd of interested observers who were shouting things like “Unfair!” “Don’t give her a ticket,” etc. One of the reasons that our trek to my car (for my ID) was so

e-mail Dan at

slow was that Aspen, my 14-yearold, walks so slowly and with some difficulty. When I returned home, I looked up the ordinance that was cited on my summons, 77-4-M. I will forward that in another email, as I was unable to copy it here. Basically it says that no person shall walk with a dog or other animal in a protected bird nesting area as designated in F…, which says that each nesting site be “fenced, roped or flagged in such a manner designed to alert the public that entry is prohibited.” It also says no person “shall disturb or endanger any protected bird nesting area on the beach” I did neither of these things. The bird nesting areas are specifically roped off and we were not near them. There are several issues here. There was no adequate signage to warrant a ticket. Does anyone or town have the right to forbid walking on the wet sand areas of a beach? Isn’t this a federal law? Can the wet sand area be considered a nesting area? It was not roped off. Has the town used the plover nesting to set up the fence perpendicular to the beach in addition to fencing off the actual nesting areas in order to effectively ban dog walking on the beach? Is this a surreptitious attempt to achieve what public hearings have squashed? Note: In the photos the no dogs sign is opposite the yellow sign. You may know that I am an artist and I am somewhat known for my “dogs on the beach” paintings. They were inspired by the wonderful ambience dogs have enjoyed here in East Hampton. This whole situation is very sad. Please contact me if you have any questions or are interested in discussing this further.

PITY THE DEER Dear Dan, As we continue to direct our wrath at an escalating deer population on Long Island in search of food, we must take a moment to examine why they have become problematic and are destroying crops. I find the growing hostility toward these animals misdirected. Too much of the Long Island landscape has been destroyed by suburban sprawl and overdevelopment and as a result these docile animals have been forced to leave their dwindling natural habitat to search for a steady food supply. Instead of becoming angry at these defenseless animals trying to survive, we should focus our discontent on those responsible for overdevelopment and the unscathed defoliation of Long Island. Jason E. Hill Ridge, New York Via e-mail Send the deer off to special summer camps just for them. – DR THANKS TO POXY Dear Dan, Our two grandsons were visiting from Los Angeles in July. The boys are 10 and 11 years of age and expressed an interest in learning how to play the game of golf. Bottom line, it was a wonderful experience. The team that runs the program was above par, pun intended. All of us here on the East End are fortunate in so many ways, none of which we take for granted. The Poxabogue total environment deserves our praise and thanks for adding to the mix, the course, the shop, the instructors and the restaurant. Susan Kraus Via e-mail We almost lost it a few years ago but our town supervisors stepped up to the plate and saved it from development. – DR

Police Blotter Fake Bill A fake $50 bill turned up in Southampton last week. A sharp-eyed bank employee detected the bill after noticing that it didn’t look right. The Secret Service was called, as they usually handle these types of crimes. The bank employee was tipped off when he noticed Bugs Bunny on the face of the bill. $1,000 Glasses A man from New Jersey lost a pair of $1,000 black metal glasses in East Hampton Village. He checked his $33,000 watch around 2 p.m. when he made the report. His $3,000 cowboy boots were kicking him all the way back to his $14 million home in East Hampton, where he spoke to his $800-an-hour therapist about the loss. Plasma Television A rash of robberies took place all over the Hamptons involving flat screen televisions, which included the theft of two large flat screen televisions from a Southampton residence last week. For those of you that do not know what it is like to have a flat

screen, try to remember that it is difficult for some us to even imagine how we lived on this planet before them. We must stop these crimes. Computer Crime A man from Westhampton called police after he turned on his computer and found that it had been used to visit pornographic websites. Whoever used his computer also used his credit card to pay for the website memberships. The man believes that he has been tricked into paying for the services since October. There is no word yet on whether or not the man plans to cancel the services. Sucker Punched A man and a woman who room together in Water Mill had an episode last week. The man was caught eating some of the woman’s food and, in response, the woman popped him in the jaw. The man then called the police. At the scene, the police learned that the man stole some of the woman’s secret stash of Godiva chocolates. Police advised the man to never, ever, under

any circumstances, touch a woman’s private stash of Godiva chocolates. It’s Naked Time A man in Southampton was arrested for being naked on the beach. Apparently, the man had gone for a long run on the beach in the middle of the day and wanted to go for a dip, but didn’t have a bathing suit because he was jogging in sweatpants and a sweatshirt. He decided to jump into the water in his birthday suit. After being arrested, the man was so invigorated by jumping into the sea naked that he was quoted saying, “It was worth it,” to police. 12 Bottles of Wine and Liquor 12 bottles of wine and liquor were reported stolen from a Montauk residence. The location of the alcohol was the kitchen closet of the home. Police were a little skeptical of the report however, as the woman who made the report also reported an extreme hangover.
