Just in the last week, for example, the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, where the 76ers and the Flyers play, has become a problem. Wachovia, the sixth largest bank in America, was swallowed up by CitiCorp. (Or maybe Wells Fargo.) The name Wachovia no longer exists. Meanwhile, the same problem is on the table at the WaMu Theatre in Madison Square Garden. Washington Mutual Savings Bank is now part of the Bank of America. What to do? Take the letters on the wall down and put up BofA and CitiCorp? Leave them up and hope they return? Here in the Hamptons, many of our cultural institutions have already been hit big time by these corporate naming problems. Guild Hall was in the process of renaming its John Drew Theatre the Fannie Mae Theatre. The Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center

(what a mouthful that was) was to become the Lehman Brothers Center. Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor was going to become the AIG Theatre and in Southampton, the Parrish Art Museum was about to be renamed the Merrill Lynch Museum. Serious money — tens of millions of dollars — had already been paid. (The checks bounced.) The big bronze or stainless steel letters had already been made up. (They have now been set aside to see if, in the future,

people in government that everyone wanted to remember. Or for the place where they were built. Yankee Stadium was Yankee Stadium. Fenway Park was Fenway Park. Giant Stadium was Giant Stadium. Who was Ebbetts? I did not know. And who was Shea? I am still not sure I know. But anyway, you could count on those things. But then, the owners of these stadiums decided that they could make big bucks by selling the naming rights to their properties. So you got the Ameriquest Stadium for the Texas Rangers football team, Enron Field in Houston, Fleet Garden in Boston, PSInet Stadium in Baltimore and the Great American Bank and the Adelphia Coliseum for the Tennessee Titans, all gone to a new name because every one of those companies either got swallowed up or went under — and the chairman of Adelphia even went to jail. Many stadiums even became serial bankrupters. In San Francisco, the ballpark where the baseball Giants play was first named PacBell Stadium, which went under, then SBC Stadium, which went under, and is now AT&T Stadium, with everybody’s fingers crossed. Meanwhile, on the other side of town, the foot-

they can be used by some new firm with the same letters, but in a different order.) The workmen with their long aluminum ladders had been hired. Now all will have to stand down. Up until about 10 years ago, the names of stadiums were never put up for sale. They were named, instead, for who played or performed there. Or they were named after prominent

East Hampton Rules Vered, Balloons, Folding Chairs, Popcorn, SnoCones & Dog Poop By Dan Rattiner After all the sturm und drang of the summer, with the police raids on all the stores, Ruth Kalb, of the Vered Gallery, being hauled off in handcuffs for giving away wine at her gallery opening, Dylan Lauren being told she could not give away snow cones and all the other things, everybody felt it would be a good idea for village officials and the police to get together with a bunch of the store owners to sort things out. The discussion about all this took place at a breakfast meeting at the Palm Restaurant on Main Street at 8:30 a.m. on a Tuesday. Present were about 20 downtown merchants, along with Marina Van and Larry Cantwell, who is the village manager. (In East Hampton Village, the village manager is sort of like the prime minister, while Paul Rickenbacker, the mayor, is sort of like the king.) Cantwell started things off by saying that he

wanted these merchants to have as much success with their businesses as they could, but that rules were rules and many of them had been created so the village could stay as beautiful as it is, since it had been once selected as America’s most beautiful village and, for example, putting a balloon out on the sign out front to let people know there was something special going on inside, which the Eileen Fisher Clothing Store on Newtown Lane wanted to put up, was just not going to be acceptable. “Once you have one balloon,” he said, “pretty soon you have hundreds of balloons everywhere and they couldn’t have that, so there is a rule against that.” In the back, a few people strained to look out the window of the Palm to see if there was a balloon on their sign, since it was special they were having their meeting there. There wasn’t. He talked about snow cones. And he talked

about popcorn, which reminded people of the popcorn popper that was shut down at Dylan’s Candy Bar and the SnoCone machine that was shut down at the Ralph Lauren Rugby Store, and he said that the rule of thumb was that if it required any preparation for the food, it was illegal. So you could give out things, such as free cider or crackers or cheese, but you couldn’t be making hamburgers or whomping up a free omelet for example. The distinction, apparently, was that you could serve cheese and crackers separately, for example, which is what he already noted, but if you actually spread the cheese on the crackers to make it crackers and cheese, then the police would have every right to swoop in to shut the joint down. People in the audience nodded that they (continued on page 22)

A DELIBERATE LOOK AT EH’S TENTATIVE BUDGET By T.J. Clemente While Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill once addressed Parliament about a new budget, holding up an enormous document over three feet thick and saying “By its very weight it has insured that it will never be read.” That will not be the case of the many pages of the much anticipated 2009 Tentative Budget for the Town of East Hampton that Supervisor Bill McGintee released on September 30. After all the controversy about the huge shortfalls in 2008, with a deficit estimated to be between $8-

9 million, the cover sheet of the new document proclaims, “Total appropriations have been reduced by $7,900,000.” The document predicts $48,730,156.23 as the total amount to be raised by taxes. The new tax rate outside the village will be 18.756%; in the village the increase will be 28.743%. Yet homeowners outside of the village who were paying $5,000 in taxes in 2008 will see an increase of just $219.20. Even though the village rate seems higher, the increase for a home assessed at that same rate in the village will be $145.40. With the essentials itemized by each depart-

ment, many costs occurred in 2008 are projected as $00.00 for 2009. For example, $5,000 remains in the 2009 budget for fireworks in Montauk, the same as it was in 2008. But the Concert in the Park allocation of $5,000 that the Montauk Chamber of Commerce received in 2008 has been removed for 2009. Part of the new budget is a proposal to raise an additional $500,000 from three sources: fees at the landfill, fees at the justice court, and new fees for resident beach stickers. Also it is noted (continued on next page)

that 15 town employees have been eliminated from the payroll, and three new entry level employees were added for another savings of $500,000. Another sobering line in the cover page sums up the spirit of how the budget was calculated: “These cost cutting measures have been offset by a greater reduction in revenues of $16,589,109 resulting from decreased mortgage tax, decreased funding in other areas and adjustments to accurately reflect our revenue sources.” What this means is the bad economy has cost the town over $16 million in revenues. So what are the cost cutting measures? The supervisor’s office pointed out cuts in programs like “Project Most,” which extends the day in East Hampton public schools. Lynn Ryan, McGintee’s chief aide, said it overlapped with another after-school day care program. Grants to non-profits were slashed from $45,000 to $15,000. Grants to PTAs and the local Chambers of Commerce were reduced noticeably. Ryan also believes savings will be gained through the departure of eight town police officers, who left the force of their own accord and are being replaced by eight at the entry level. Concerning the town’s employee health care cost, Ryan announced an agreement between the union and the town to remain connected to the Island Group Agency, with Alan Kaplan vowing to make the town’s health care saving equal to what it would be if the town had contracted with the Empire State Plan. Savings to

The Supervisor with his budget

the town are estimated conservatively at $1.5 million, up to perhaps $4 million. Reports of a Canadian Plan are out the window. The budget states Employee Benefits — which include workers compensation, social security, medicare, unemployment insurance, health

insurance, dental, optical and NYS Retirement — had the adopted 2008 budget number at $9,205,000 and the proposed 2009 budget number at $5,905,500. It was stressed that these were simply tentative proposals for spending that would be addressed in the open town board meetings. There will certainly be changes as board members weigh in on where they think cuts should and shouldn’t be made. However, it may be some comfort to know that the Fort Hill Cemetery budget has been cut from $46,800 in 2008 to $46,100 for 2009. The budget for other cemeteries that the Town’s Park Department maintains has been cut by 1/3 — from $6,100 to $4,100. One area where there is an increase is Senior/Handicapped Transportation, which went up from $408,144.60 in 2008 to $433,496.18 in 2009. Larry Penny’s Department of Natural Resources has a minuscule $136 cut after all the controversy, with a 2008 number of $571,837.50 as opposed to the proposed 2009 number being $517,701.99. This, with a reduction of salaries of just over $20,000. When the process is over, the actual total budget can range from just over $50 million to just under $70 million, depending on what the town board decides to adopt, add and somehow fund. A helpful proposal from the state was to raise the fine on all moving traffic violations an additional $50 to go directly to the towns. This will be welcomed income. The 2009 Budget process has begun. Everyone in town is watching.

Skyscraper to Nowhere 1/2 Mile High, 2 1/2 Times Taller than Empire State Bldg. to Open By Dan Rattiner I read in the paper a while ago that some investors from Abu Dabi, UAE have bought the Chrysler Building in Manhattan. I thought it a rather fitting bookend to another event going on in Abu Dabi. Other investors from that country are this month topping off — or nearly topping off — the newest and tallest building in the world. The Burj, it is called, and it is being completed on the sands of Dubai. I say almost topping off because indeed those who are building it are, as we speak, scanning the horizon and looking at things over their shoulders to make sure that what they are building will not be challenged for perhaps the next 100 years.

The Burj is 162 stories tall and nearly half a mile high. And from the beginning, when they started building it last year, they kept it secret as to exactly how tall it would be when the construction stopped. They wanted to make sure nobody else would even come close, and if they saw somebody trying to do that, they’d just go up and up even farther. This was the same concept followed by Walter Chrysler back in 1930, when he was building his great skyscraper in Manhattan. The tallest building on record before he began construction of his building was the Woolworth Building, about 40 blocks to the south in the Wall Street area. It was 60 stories, 886 feet high, and had been the tallest building in the world for 20

years. Chrysler decided he would build his building 70 stories and 925 feet high. It was a very big deal and a great feather in your cap to build the tallest building in the world. But a few weeks after he broke ground, there was a challenge. Back downtown, a group of bankers started construction of what they would call the Bank of Manhattan Trust Building. The bankers announced that it would be 70 stories and 927 feet high, two feet higher than the Chrysler Building. When the bankers got to topping off at that height, they had the workmen put down their tools for a week to watch and see if the Chrysler building would stop at 925 feet. When it (continued on page 24)

IN SAG HARBOR, LET THE “BIG DIG” BEGIN By T.J. Clemente The Sag Harbor National Grid “Big Dig” has begun on Bridge Street, the site where the huge blue gas ball once loomed overhead. The adjacent former military barracks buildings, owned by George Schiavone, have been taken down and daily supplies — like the three huge blue pumps to remove the toxic tar-like substance below the site — have arrived. The site is littered with heavy equipment in preparation for the arrival of the enormous tent in which perhaps as many as 50 trucks a day will carry level 2 toxic waste out of Sag Harbor. This reporter received a couple of letters from

Sag Harbor resident Julie Moses, who is keeping a diligent eye on National Grid, a London based company. In one letter, Moses stated that, at a similar dig in Queens, N.Y. (Sunnyside Yard-Amtrak site) there was a “One day exposure” of similar “level #2 Hazard Waste.” That information was confirmed by another letter from State of New York Health Officials. In response, Sag Harbor Mayor Greg Ferraris said he was aware of this situation and that the town has taken action to insure the safety of its citizens. The Mayor stated that Village Board of Trustee member Ed Deyermond was

the town expert on the National Grid project. Deyermond was aware of Moses’ concerns, but seemed to not share her fears. He stated, “There is a CAMP or Community Air Monitoring Program in place at this site. National Grid (NG) uses an advanced air monitoring system to monitor dust & vapor emissions. There is a meteorological component as well as six fixed monitoring stations that communicate to a central computer area as well as a number of portable monitoring stations to be deployed as necessary or as needed.” Now what should happen if somehow a situ(continued on page 32)

Ponderings Why Did Fish Die? Can You Swim Underwater at Mill Pond? By April Gonzales Mill Pond in Water Mill is where Mosey Muller used to swim and play under water tag as a kid — his family has lived on the edge of the pond for over 60 years. Sometimes the water was crystal clear. Other times a little murkier, with visibility of 5 or 6 feet. In the winter, Muller and his friends would ice skate on the pond and when they got thirsty, they’d chop a hole in the ice and take a drink. When Muller was in high school, his love of the pond led him to do a study of the watershed to determine factors that affect it. Today, along with a lot of other long time Water Mill residents, Muller is wondering why

so many fish died so suddenly at Mill Pond, and if it still safe to swim with your head under water. (Having heard that blue green algae can be toxic, he keeps his head above water when the pond is murky.) He has noticed that in recent years the algae blooms are happening faster, and that there are big swings in the quality of the water, which can go from being crystal clear to pea soup and back again. Muller’s high school report revealed that during rains an enormous amount of water laden with farm soil would rush down Deerfield Road and into the pond right at the sharp corner near his family’s home. A plume of soil would extend out into the pond. At that

time, in the upland area that makes up the Mill Pond watershed, he discovered washouts — ravines created by the rushing water in the farm soils that were up to five feet deep. There are fewer farms today, so better fertilizers combined with efforts to reduce pesticides have decreased their impact on the pond somewhat, but not completely. Last week’s storm rains created a latte-colored river flowing down Deerfield Road. There are 13 catch basins between the corner where the soil-laden water enters the pond and the intersection of Deerfield and Head of Pond Roads. Muller had questioned the storm (continued on page 34)

OCEAN “CRISIS” DISCUSSED AT STONEY BROOK By Debbie Tuma It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that the adage “there are plenty of fish in the sea,” is up for a challenge. But that sentiment was corroborated last Friday by Ellen Pikitch, the new Director of the Institute for Ocean Conservation Science at Stony Brook Southampton, who told an audience of about 100 people that in the past 50 years, many of our fish species are on the wane. During her lecture on the state of our oceans, Pikitch said, “Over the past decades, the stocks in our oceans have vastly declined. During the 1950s and ‘60s, the world fish catch was growing,

and then it gradually began to decline.” Pikitch held up a large world map highlighted with red blotches indicating areas rich in fish. “Back then, there were 11 tons of fish per square kilometer of ocean bottom,” she said. She then held up a map of the year 2000, with much less red. “One century later, our oceans have become depleted of fish,” she explained. “We fished down the marine food web, from larger to smaller fish, and of different species and sizes, until 90% of the big fish were gone. And it happened quickly, with a rapid decline in all the oceans of the world.”

One of the biggest impacts was Japanese long-line fishing, which started in the Western Pacific and became rampant throughout the world by 1956. One of the first fish that started to die out as a result was the orange roughie. “They caught so many of these fish in the nets that the nets would actually burst, and suddenly the catches in New Zealand started disappearing,” Pikitch said. She explained that this fish lives to be 150 years old, and “this species was clear-cut like a tree, by all the net fishermen.” (continued on page 34)

understood. Some of them said they were glad they were all on the same page here. Free kernels of corn in a bag that you could take home and pop later were fine. Bags of popcorn store bought were fine. Just no popper, or at least no popper in the store. You might consider having a popper out back in your car with an extension cord powering it, and you could bring in the results of that to give away, but, well, you get the idea. The matter of Ruth Kalb and the Vered Gallery were talked about. Because of all the people pushing the envelope about what you could or couldn’t do, they had decided to enforce an ordinance that was never before enforced, actually two ordinances which said that if you wanted to serve wine and cheese at a gallery opening, you’d

need a one night liquor license that cost $36, and you’d need a public gathering permit that cost $50, all payable to the village, so that was a good thing and for those that had galleries there at the meeting, he was just reminding them. As far as Ms. Kalb was concerned, the trouble started when she refused to stop serving the wine when asked by police officers to do so and said instead they should come back later when the party was over – it was packed to the rafters with people – and they could talk about it but she was just too busy just at that time. Thus, the handcuffs. More discussion ensued about whether you could put a folding chair on your property. The matter came up as a question from Terry Ross, of the Spanierman Gallery on Newtown Lane, who wanted to know if it would be all right if, at an


art gallery opening with all the proper permits and all, could he put folding chairs out front with maybe a small table so people could sit and rest while the event was going on. Larry asked if it was on property he owned and Terry said it was and then Larry said it would be okay, “so long as it doesn’t block the flow of traffic on the sidewalk.” Other questions came up about flowers in pots out front – the anwer was no – and about having music playing – the answer was yes, but only if it was a recording. For some reason at this point, the meeting deteriorated into a discussion about dog poop. People who have dogs are allowed to walk them in the village even without a leash, so long as they clean up the dog poop. Yet, occasionally, they forget to do so, and certainly that was a matter for law enforcement, but a suggestion that was made that perhaps there be plastic bag dispensers on the corners, perhaps near the walk/don’t walk buttons on the lampposts, was not well received by those in attendance – dog poop dispensers in a seventeenth century colonial village? – but Mr. Cantwell politely said he would take it under advisement. There was then a discussion about leash laws for dogs and that there weren’t any in the village. At the present time, there are laws which say someone with a dog needs to have it “under his control” at all times, which meant that if you called the dog he would have to come. And if that meant it had to be reminded by a leash, so be it. (Not having a leash but getting the dog to come by voice command is akin to having a wireless computer printer. Or a TV remote. Come. Sit. Fetch. See? No leash.) There is a law, by the way, that says that dogs that are put into the back of pickup trucks by local bonackers – a thing that seems to be something that both the bonackers and the dogs, invariably black labs or golden retrievers – like. It was apparently passed at a time when some of the other locals, seeing the dogs jumping around happily back there while the bonackers drove them around, worried that they might fall out going around a turn, which hadn’t happened yet but then, by god it certainly could, and so after that you had to have a leash attached to keep the dog in, which could be why you don’t see such things very much anymore. The meeting adjourned after Cantwell suggested that if somebody wanted to propose a leash law he would surely take a look at it. Mrs. Van, meanwhile, said she’d like to talk to the mayor about having some sort of Fourth of July exception to the rules about balloons and bunting, such as the exception we have for the week or two before Christmas, when all the stores are festooned with holiday ornaments and garlands. As people were leaving, two people began to talk about a dog law that recently passed in Tel Aviv. All the dogs in that city have to have licenses, of course. But now one of them said they had heard that when you get the license you have to give a DNA sample of the dog to the city. And they keep that on file. Whenever anybody steps on dog poop and wants to do something about it, the police can match up the DNA and they know whom to fine. It could work.

did, they triumphantly claimed the title. But Walter Chrysler had a surprise. While the Bank of Manhattan building was going up, he was secretly building, inside his building, a magnificent seven-story tower that had a needle on the top. It filled the inside of the final 10 stories of the Chrysler Building, and, after the bankers spent days and weeks crowing and chest thumping about having the world’s tallest building honors, Chrysler simply had his workmen push up his tower through the top of his “finished” Chrysler Building to reveal what he really had in mind when he had started. It went up in less than an hour and a half. And so, with this magnificent, gleaming, soaring art deco top, the Chrysler claimed the crown at 77 stories and 1,046 feet high.

Chrysler kept that crown, as you probably know, for only another year. The following year, developers built the Empire State Building even taller than the Chrysler Building. And so the reign of Chrysler ended. Today, the Burj keeps going up and up. At 2,257 feet high, it is nearly two and a half times the height of the Chrysler Building or the Empire State Building. It is half again taller than the Petronas building in Maylasia (1,483 feet) and the Taipei 101 building in Taiwan, (1,671 feet) and the Sears Tower in Chicago, (1,518 feet to the top of the radio masts) which, for the last 10 years, have one after the other had the honors of “the world’s tallest building.” The Burj even dwarfs all other buildings under construction, in the planning stages or even in

the minds of some builders who might be thinking of building something that would be “the world’s tallest building.” As I said, the builders of the Burj are taking this all very, very seriously and, if challenged, I think would reopen the construction and beat whatever came along. What keeps the Burj standing upright, I do not know. They built it on sand. They built it where there are sometimes great windstorms. They built it in a place where temperatures on a summer’s day reach 112 degrees. They built it where there is absolutely no need to have a building this tall. And they built it with impoverished foreign workers whom they gave low pay. But they had it designed by Merrill Lynch of New York City. So they’ve taken the best shot at things. There is a hotel on the bottom (designed by Georgio Armani), there are apartments in the middle, and up top there are the offices and condominiums. I don’t know about you, but even with all this, I find it hard to believe that people would open an office or an apartment in this building. But they are doing so. The apartments sold out 12 hours after they went on sale. Office space is renting for $4,000 a square foot. And yet, a great wind might blow it down. A typhoon might tear it apart. How can you build something this tall and narrow with only gravity keeping it in place? I’m not going up there, anyway. And have you thought why this is going on in Abu Dabi, UAE? Abu Dabi expects the Burj to be the centerpiece of the island city of Dubai, which they expect to become the Arab version of Hong Kong (business), Singapore (banking) and Las Vegas (fun) for this side of the world. If the oil billions and trillions keep pouring in, it will do just that. The other day, I drove halfway up Long Island, a roundtrip of about 90 miles, to have a book reading at a giant bookstore in a shopping center in Centereach for my new memoir In the Hamptons: My Fifty Years With Farmers, Fishermen, Artists, Billionaires and Celebrities. I left the house at 5 p.m., drove two hours through the rush hour traffic, did the reading, returned at 10 p.m. and went to bed. Before I did, however, I opened the refrigerator and took out a gallon container of milk and poured myself a glass. I looked at this container. We all know the size of a gallon of milk. Now put six of them side by side. And that’s how much gasoline at $100 a barrel I burned in the engine of my car during the four hours of driving up the island and back. I sent the fumes from it up into the atmosphere. I bankrolled more Abu Dabi nonsense. I saw about 50,000 other people behind steering wheels doing exactly the same thing. And I hadn’t, and I don’t think anybody else had, even given this a second of thought. Staggering, isn’t it. * * * As we go to press, we learn that a 3,350 foot, 200-story building is to be constructed in Bahrain, while a building just 80 feet shorter than that has been proposed for Kuwait. As for the Burj, they have decided to NOT top the building off at 2,257 feet or so in the next few weeks, but to continue on. It will be finished, they say, in September 2009, and at that time, when the last crane and cement bucket and tool is put down, they will announce how tall it is.

Train Four, driven by Harry Randolph, came across the finish line at the Southampton Station in a dead heat for first place. The event was held between 3 and 5 a.m. because that is when the subway system closes every night for maintenance. We had hoped that on this particular night, huge crowds









Hampton Subway Week of October 7 – 13, 2008 Riders this week: 22,768 Rider miles this week: 126,749 Delays: The Southampton to Shinnecock line will be shut down on Sunday, October 8 from 2 to 5 p.m. so animal rights veterinarians can try again to coax a 55-pound raccoon out of an airduct near Shinnecock Lane. DOWN IN THE TUBE Many movie stars have been seen recently down on the subway platforms, apparently to get ready for the upcoming Hampton International Film Festival next week. They included Natalie Portman at the Amagansett platform with her dog. (Yes, dogs are permitted on the subway, as long as they are on leashes.) Woody Allen was seen in Southampton, Michael Caine and Michelle Pfeiffer in Sag Harbor and Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker in Quogue. PUSHER BOXING CHAMPIONSHIPS Preliminary boxing bouts are taking place every evening in the company cafeteria in Hampton Bays as the 22 young people who worked all summer as “pushers� to get subway riders on the trains continue along with their tournament. The affairs are three rounds long and the pushers get to wear the same padding, helmets and boxing gloves they wore when they were employed between Memorial Day and Labor Day last summer. A standout in the tournament so far is “Wild Bill� Katrasokovski of Noyac, who at 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds has so far won all three of his heavyweight preliminaries. He was the pusher, you might recall, who got the most complaints over the summer and who we had to get to go a bit more gently at it. Two of his wins have been by knockout. The biggest surprise, however, is Emily “Wildcat� Parsons, who gave up her job as the librarian in Water Mill to be a pusher for the summer. Now back at the library, she has, after work, fought as a middleweight and has knocked all three of her opponents out with one punch in the first round — all of whom are men. Only four of the 22 pushers hired were women. And some people complained about that imbalance. Emily appears to be taking matters into her own hands. HAMPTON SUBWAY FIRECRACKER 200 ENDS IN A DEAD HEAT This past Sunday morning, riders of the subway got to watch six subway drivers — motormen – compete in a 200-mile race with six different empty subway trains, four times around the subway system, passing each station at speeds up to 90 miles an hour as they went. Train Two, driven by Alex Bratomski, and



would come down at that hour to sit on the temporary stands we set up at each station and watch as the trains came barreling through, but that didn’t happen. Apparently, the lateness of the hour and the pouring rain(continued on following page)

storm that was raging topside kept everybody home in their beds. Two trains actually sideswiped each other while negotiating the turn up at Trout Pond in Noyac and will be out of service for several weeks while they get repaired. The time between trains will therefore be 22 minutes instead of the usual 15. Sorry about that. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE The Hampton Subway is now in possession of massive amounts of hot dogs and crackerjacks and cold soda and beer, left over from the Firecracker 200. We also have lots of pennants, flags and balloons that had been put up on the various platforms, due to the overestimation of the success of the Firecracker 200. It was a nice effort on behalf of Todd Greenfield, our recently hired public relations and marketing director, and we know the outcome of this was not his fault. We also wish him well in his new job, which, we are told, is at FEMA headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, painting trailers. In any case, I had a lot of fun firing the cannon that started the race. And we’d particularly like to thank the high school bands of Pierson, East Hampton, Bridgehampton, Hampton Bays, Southampton and Westhampton Beach for playing on their own hometown platforms. It was a great effort, and it was just too bad nobody was there.

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner Life Is Good, @#$%!$# It! By David Lion Rattiner I’m sitting at my desk right now watching in terror as my stocks go down. It is one very, very lousy feeling. Life is still good. I have the ocean, I have a job, I have a Smart Car and…WHAT THE HELL 700 POINTS? 800? ARE YOU KIDDING ME! THE DOW IS DOWN 800 POINTS? I hate everything, and when I say everything, I mean everything. Get away, BE GONE! No, no I’m not crying. Shut up! This is the worst, most terrible time in my life. I work every day, put a portion of my money into the stock market, and now it is going down below to where I invested some money two years ago? I hate everybody! Even the coffee person annoyed me this morning. YES I WANT IT BLACK! YOU GOT A PROBLEM? Do something, dude, just give me a reason. I’m begging. But life is good. I can eat every day whatever I want. I’m still working, unlike some of my buddies in the city that have been laid off or fear of being laid off. The Hamptons International Film Festival is coming up and that will be exciting. Fall is here, there will be kids running around getting apple cider and I get to wear those preppy sweaters that make me feel like I’m a Ralph Lauren model and are snuggly. I’m a grownup, which means that I can eat plenty of Ben and Jerry’s right now to ward off this empty feeling of financial stupidity (maybe that is a good stock now?). Because even though I went to business school and made my Dad pay $120,000 of college tuition to learn about finance only to end up working for him at Dan’s Papers as an editor and then trade stocks on my own, you would think that business school would help me NAVIGATE THIS STOCK MARKET! I HATE THAT IT IS GOING DOWN! HOW DO STOCKS LIKE GOLDMAN SACHS, VISA AND GENERAL ELECTRIC GO DOWN THIS MUCH IN ONE DAY? WHY! WHY! WHY! RAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRR!!! Stop selling your stocks, people, you are making it worse. Don’t you get that? Selling your stock right now is like betting that America is going to fail. Are you nuts? Are you kidding me? Everything is bad. Nothing is good, IT-IS-THE-APOCALYPSE! Life is good. Yes, stocks are going down. But they’ll come back up, Dave. You made the right move buying into some stocks as they have dropped 1020-30-40-100 percent. It will all come back, it is all just part of the business cycle. Think about all of the idiots who are selling right now, when they could be buying so many great businesses at a huge discount. This is opportunity time. This is going to be great. Set your course. Life is good. We got the leaves turning color. We got fewer people in town. The films in the film fest look good I watched a screener of

the movie ‘77, a cinematic coming of age story about a young guy. It’s charming. I have a warm bed to sleep in, a great family, everyone is in good health. The price of gas is coming down, which is a good thing even though it is only coming down because of a huge global sell off of securities thanks to a ridiculous amount of fear running through the markets caused by this DISASTROUS sub prime lending scheme that has affected the whole country causing so many people to lose a tremendous amount of money that they have saved and worked for and now it is affecting the average

GUY who is saving money in the stock market for retirement. WHAT? WHAT WAS THAT? THE BAILOUT ISN’T REALLY WORKING? THEN WHAT DID IT DO? WHERE’S MY BAILOUT!? HUH?! WHAT?! YOU STUPID MOTHER !@#!@#@ !@#$ $!#$% son of a %@#$!@#$ lousy $@!#$#! I hate you, you $#@$!@#@#^ and you can go to !@# @#$@#$ #@$ and the stick #@$@#$ up @##@$$ @!#$ and then you can go eat a @!#$@!#. But it’s all right. Hey, man, we got it made. Life is good. The air is crisp, I’m healthy, I got a dog, the ocean…

Who’s Here By Victoria L. Cooper There’s a new meaning to the word “international” at this year’s Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF) and you can thank Karen Arikian, the festival’s new executive director. In its 16th year, HIFF, which starts this Wednesday, October 15, and will run through Sunday, celebrates some of the finest films to date in East Hampton with additional venues on the South Fork in Sag Harbor, Southampton and Montauk. In just five days, the festival will feature 122 films including 14 world premieres, 23 North American premieres, 15 East Coast premieres and 15 New York premieres. Born in West Islip, New York, Arikian is a native Long Islander who is no stranger to the Hamptons. Although this is her first time living on the East End, which she says “has been wonderful,” Arikian has been deeply connected to the HIFF for almost 10 years. She’s served on various juries, selection committees and advisory boards for documentary films and short films, and has been a long time supporter of the Rising Stars program. This year, HIFF and OK! Magazine will continue to back the popular Rising Stars showcase, which helps to highlight young talent in the industry. “Rising Stars is a direct descendent from the European Film Promotion’s Shooting Stars program. This year, HIFF is expanding the program for the first time to include three North American actors and three European actors. It will be a great opportunity for these gifted actors to experience this world-class festival,” said Arikian. “A few years ago I used to drive them around to all the events, it’s so rewarding to be a part of that experience.” Before joining the European Film Promotion in 2002, Arikian was head of the New York office for Berlin-based TiMe Film and TV Production, a financing and production company. Here she showcased some of her many talents and skills, and produced two films – Deeply, starring Kirsten Dunst and The Unscarred, starring James Russo. She began her film and television career at WNET before moving to Independent Feature Project in New York, where she held several positions including Market Director and Executive Director. She then joined Bruce Weber’s Little Bear Films, where she was responsible for overseeing the

Karen Arikian, HIFF Exec. Dir. development of film and television projects, including a documentary on Robert Mitchum and commercials for Banana Republic and Pepe Jeans, among others. Before joining the HIFF, Arikian was serving as Co-Director of the Berlin International

cal as well as artistic scope, and I know she will enhance our festival on many levels. In addition, Karen’s ongoing relationship with the Berlin International Film Festival will only help to strengthen the association our two festivals have forged over the last few years and which we are extremely pleased to see continue and flourish.” Arikian’s interest in film really started when she was 19 years old and traveled abroad for the first time to study in England. She was invited to a screening where she watched Aguirre, Wrath of God, a German independent film, written and directed by Werner Herzog. “Before that point in time, I was always much more theatre oriented. I really bonded with film that day. It opened a lot of doors.” Arikian loves to work in the film business, commenting, “I really enjoy the people and the creative processes it offers.” For this year’s festival — and for the future — Arikian has a strong vision. “The festival has been around for 16 years with a successful energy and style. It’s a very important community event for the people in the Hamptons. It brings people from around the world to this beautiful destination and it also supports all the young filmmakers,” she said. “We’ve worked really hard on the programming and we’re trying to incorporate more foreign and international flavors. I’m helping with that.” Another area Arikian would like to expand is making sure that HIFF has a year-round presence in the Hamptons. “We already have plans with Guild Hall and Montauk Chamber of Commerce to become more present in the community. We would like to see more events that attract the industry community throughout the year. We also have local community leaders out here that are sitting on one of the Conflict and Resolution panels. I’d like to see more of that next year, too,” she said. As someone who admits that she’s on a “learning curve” and wants to “credit all those working so hard in the office,” it’s clear that Arikian is a humble and modest woman with a long list of accomplishments and talents. She’s a great addition to the HIFF, which is one of the most anticipated and respected events on the international and local circuit. From East End filmmakers to those in Berlin and beyond, Arikian hopes to bring “enlightenment, exposure and entertainment” for all.

Deyermond stated in an e-mail, “Should data indicate that vapor or dust is above these limits, the job is shut down and mitigation procedures are put in place until the issue is resolved.� Now what about the water that will be pumped into the bay? In his E-mail, Deyermond explains, “As for the water discharge, three agencies, the US Army Corps of Engineers, NYSDEC and the NYS Dept. of State are responsible for the permitting processes that will apply. Specific effluent limits have been established by the NYSDEC (Division of Water) for discharge into Sag Harbor Bay which is a class SA water body. Sampling will be done weekly to insure

compliance with their directives, tolerances and limitations. After eight weeks, if all continues to be in order, sampling will revert to a monthly schedule.� Responding to my questions about what the village has done to Assure residents that they are being given valid information, Trustee Deyermond responded in an e-mail, “The village will continue to monitor the entire operation including all the various meter readings, and measurement levels and provide them to village consultants such as The Woods Hole Group, or the village’s testing lab for wastewater treatment purposes “EcoTest� to insure independent verification.� When pressed about how diligent the village officials will be, Deyermond stated, “Residents and visitors can be assured that village representatives are on-site virtually every day to insure that this project goes according to plan.�

What happens if something occurs in the water purifying process, which may pump up to 1 million gallons of water and diluted toxic waste into the Sag Harbor Outer Cove? Deyermond said there were, “High alarm levels in the system, overflow alarms and standby generators are in place to warn the engineer of potentially hazardous issues, should one come up.� This is where the concerns of citizens like Julie Moses come into play. Mayor Ferraris stated he is confident nothing will go wrong when it comes to the safety of the Sag Harbor residents. But Moses asks, how do we know that “we will not be exposed?� The mayor and Trustee Deyermond simply believe that the citizens won’t be. They are confident in the procedures in place. Deyermond explained he personally went over the options until he was convinced that the best possible procedures were in place to do the job safely. But the fact remains that 50 trucks a day will leave Sag Harbor with contaminated level 2 hazardous waste. That waste is contained in soil that will be dug out and loaded onto trucks, within the confines of special tents. Also, water containing tar-like fluids containing state regulated levels of toxins (including small levels of cyanide) will be pumped into Sag Harbor Outer Cove at a level (using National Grid’s number) of up to 1 million gallons a day. The project has started and will hopefully end before Memorial Day 2009. But in these eight months ahead, as Moses warns, “The potential for error is always hanging in the background.�

basins’ ability to take up all the flow from upstream, so to speak, as the water level of run-off typically rose very quickly and ran so rapidly down the road that only the first 1/4” of rain actually went into the storm drainage system. The rest ran out into the pond. According to Freddie Havermeyer, a Southampton Town Trustee whose beat includes both Lake Agawam and Mill Pond, the first 1/4-1/2” of rainfall contains the most contaminants that could pollute the pond, and catch basins do siphon this first flush off successfully. But this is not the entire source of the problem with algae and fish kills. According to Havemeyer, Mill Pond and Agawam have similar issues: extensive upland drain fields that allow road run-off to go directly into the lakes. In the last 30 years, many houses have been built along Mill Pond’s waterfront with lawns that slope down to the water, like the situation at Lake Agawam. Steve Storch, who uses sophisticated com-

post teas to fertilize his customers’ lawns and gardens, works at a few places around Mill Pond. He feels that the problem is “stress from the surrounding environment … not any one thing.” Like others, Storch wonders if toxins from old agricultural run-off are still in the lake sediments, which can get stirred up. So by many accounts, the major culprit in Mill Pond’s recent fish kill seems to be run-off from surrounding houses’ gardens and lawns, as well as septic leaching, and lake and pondside homeowners need to shoulder much of the responsibility. The nutrients in fertilizers run into the lake and create ripe conditions for massive algae blooms that cloud the water. When there is a cold snap — like the one that preceded the fish kill in Mill Pond — the algae die and decompose, cutting off the supply of oxygen for fish. After the wind stirs up the lake water, the oxygen is replenished and the water clears up — which solves the mystery of the big swings in water clarity that Muller has been noticing in recent times. Having pinpointed the problem, the trustees and everyone else are ready to move toward a solution. Creating attractive landscape buffers that keep irrigation and rain from flushing run-off from lawns and gardens into the lake is one of the simplest solutions, along with the reduction of fertilizers and pesticides. Recently, a pamphlet was created and mailed it to all who live around Lake Agawam, but now the issue is one of compliance. How can the towns enforce a greater concern for the health of a lake than the look of a lawn?

Pikitch said the collapse of the marine species around the world started around 2006. “In 2003, we saw 113 more marine extinctions, of which overfishing caused 55% and the rest was caused by habitat destruction,” she said. “At this rate, everything will be gone by 2048.” She then took a look at how the rate of fish extinctions is accelerating, showing photos of the deep coral forests in the Aleutian Islands, and the difference between the trawled and untrawled areas. The trawled areas were wiped clean of this important coral.She showed how the Collateral Impacts of Fishing affects the habitats, mortality, and the bi-catch (other fish which get caught in the nets and die). “There is a growing consensus today that we need a new fishing paradigm, where the goal is to maintain the fisheries,” she said. “But we need a functioning ecosystem in order to do it.” One of Pikitch’s goals is to save the sturgeon species — especially the Beluga. These “fossil fish,” as she calls them, have been around for many years and are among the largest fish in the sea. “They can weigh up to a ton and live to be 100 years old,” said Pikitch. “There were 27 species in the Western Hemisphere, and all but one species is considered extinct. They are one of the most endangered group of fish, and they are slow to recover once they are overfished.” Pikitch said the main threats to sturgeon are the value of and desire for Beluga caviar, which can cost up to $100 an ounce. “The U.S. was 80% of the global Beluga caviar (continued on page 36)

Politics and the Media

by Marion Wolberg Weiss

The V.P. Debates: It’s Not What You Say, But How You Say It

At the vice presidential debate this past week, clothes continued to affect both candidates’ image, with both Joe Biden and Sarah Palin wearing black. In the early days of TV, people were advised never to wear black and white which would cause a “glare.” That aspect, at least, has changed. Black, of course, signifies formality (and death, in our culture), so it was somewhat surprising that Palin’s suit wasn’t a “perky” color, like red, to complement her upbeat demeanor. Yet, there were other signs that Palin’s feminine side was to be kept intact, namely her high-heels and long hair. And what about her signature glasses? This single aspect of her appearance made her fashionable while it also highlighted her eyes, a positive factor in her effective eye contact. You know what they say about eyes being the window of one’s soul. In Palin’s case, her eyes also reinforced the open, straightforward, informal image she was hawking all evening. Susan Sontag put it another way. A woman’s face, she said, “is a canvas upon which she paints a revised, corrected portrait of herself.” Conversely, Biden’s eyes seemed a bit small, closed and “beady,” through no fault of his own. Palin’s use of physical space also conveyed an openess and informality that her running mate John McCain was lacking: a willingness to look at Biden during the debates and even enter his literal bubble when they shook hands at the beginning. (Admitedly, that’s not an unusual stance, but McCain looked awkward when standing close to Barack Obama.) Palin’s words to Biden as they shook hands, “May I call you Joe?,” was the perfect greeting to also initiate informality. (And a question that this critic predicted she’d use days ahead of time.) Ironically enough, the name “Joe”

rings of authenticity and intimacy (as in the notion, “He’s a regular Joe”) yet Biden only showed this demeanor when he teared up briefly as he described his family tragedy. Vocal cues, paralanguage, were another nonverbal aspect of Palin’s style, also communicating a personal and familiar attitude. Consider her dropping the last letter in words like “coming” and “going.” The result (“comin’”) conveys a down-to-earth attitude that’s at odds with people who articulate their vowels. Her use of “ya,” as in “ya all,” had a similar effect.

Biden’s non-articulation of the word, “characterize,” did not signify a parallel attempt at being straightforward, however. Rather, it connoted a certain general nervousness. Other vocal cues worked to benefit Biden, particularly his pace, which was not too fast this time and conveyed energy and passion. Palin’s animation signified the same enthusiasm and resolve. Did non-verbal communication have a potent effect on the VP debates? You betcha.

If Abraham Lincoln was running for president today, he would probably lose. Why? Because his TV presence would do him in. He was too tall, too gawky and too unshaven to project an effective presidential image. Moreover, according to newspaper accounts of his debating style, his voice was too high. And Lincoln never cared about his clothes. Some things never change. We shouldn’t forget that during the first TV debates in 1960 between Kennedy and Nixon, physical appearance still played a potent part by giving Kennedy the edge. For example, the color of Nixon’s clothes didn’t offer enough contrast, and he “faded” into the background.

ball Giants, which took over what was formerly called Candlestick Park, first named it 3Com Stadium, and when they went under named it Monster Stadium (after Monster Cable TV, not and though that company has survived, actually both companies, the stadium owners have decided, nevertheless, that next year when the Monster contract expires, they will return to using the original name Candlestick Park to prevent future catastrophes. Cincinnati had Star Bank Arena, which became First Star Center, which became USBank Arena. And who knows what it will be after that. And the Baltimore Ravens football team played first in PSInet Stadium, which went under, then Cogent Stadium and now MFT Bank Stadium, all of which, of course, refer to the exact same place. It only goes to show you how fleeting everything with businesses can be. Hadn’t anybody noticed what the consequences might have been if a stadium had been named for Caldor or Plymouth or Oldsmobile or Netscape or TWA? Ever hear of the Betamax Theatre? One particular transaction that has gone by the wayside during this downturn has been the attempt to rename the Atlantic Ocean. I can’t tell you who the principals were in this transaction, not only because it has been all hush hush, but because the amounts involved had been staggering, as you might imagine, but if you try to say the words “Google Ocean” fast, you could get a rough idea of what this was all about. But don’t tell anybody I told you that.

But they never stop. At the present time, we can expect to see the Barclays Arena in Brooklyn for the New York Nets basketball team. And we will see Citi Field out in Queens as the new stadium for the New York Mets. Both involve payments that could be as much as $400 million over 10 years. Meanwhile, the name of the German insurance company Allianz will NOT be over the entryway of the new Giants-Jets Stadium in the Meadowlands when it opens in 2012. Allianz might have had $400 million to part with, but it turns out that, years ago, this firm had close ties with the Nazi regime. So that plan, three weeks ago, was abandoned (which might have saved them from bankruptcy). How far the Mighty have fallen. Although, it is my belief that anything named after Babe Ruth, Christopher Columbus, Albert Einstein, George Washington, Abe Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Thomas Edison, Joe DiMaggio, Attila the Hun, Socrates or Vince Lombardi is probably gonna be around for a long time. Well, speaking on behalf of the next level down, which includes the Walt Whitman Center in Huntington, the Shinnecock Golf Club in Southampton, the William Floyd Parkway in Medford, the Teddy Roosevelt County Park in Montauk, the Old Whalers Church in Sag Harbor, Louse Point Beach in the Springs and the United States of America on the planet Earth, what I say is, what goes around comes around. So watch out.

importer in the year 2000,” said Pikitch. “We tried to stop that demand — we reached out to chefs, and suggested caviar lovers try farmraised caviar instead. We decided that farmraised caviar tasted just as good.” Her campaign won a top award for public education from the Public Relations Society of America. But the damage had been done. Over a 20year period, there was a 90% decline in Beluga sturgeon. “We got the U.S. to list Beluga sturgeon as threatened, under the U.S. Endangered Species Act,” said Pikitch. “This gave them the ability to ban products to the U.S. She explained that, “Unfortunately, not everything is reversible. “If we bring the population of any species down too low, it is hard to replenish it.” Pikitch added that another problem is the depletion of the smaller fish, such as anchovies and menhaden, which are used in the health food industries for their oils. “We need to keep up the numbers of these small fish, because without them, the big fish will lack food,” said Pikitch, who is on her way to Japan for further research into the “ocean crisis.” She said that the crisis is finally being recognized, and believes that public education and outreach can influence change. The monthly talks will continue at Stony Brook Southampton. The next one, titled “Ocean Acidification and the Global Carbon Cycle,” with Dr. Cindy Lee, is scheduled for November 7 at 7:30 p.m. For information, call 631-632-5046.

Art Commentary

by Marion Wolberg Weiss

Kate Shepherd’s “Stack, Shack” at Glenn Horowitz posters and paintings. The silkscreens recall the colors used by Paul Brach, with their reds, purples and pinks. Moreover, there are two pieces leaning against the wall resembling diagrams and crisscrossing lines. We can’t help but think of somewhat similar work by performance/conceptual artist Adrian Piper, who, coincidently, was influenced a great deal by Lewitt. Shepherd’s pieces look like a time-based diagram made by Piper several years ago which chronicled her actions.

lation. The box-like shelves, which hold other works, including wooden jigsaw puzzles, complete the picture. If ever there was Gestalt at work, this is it — the integration of formed units. In the case of this exhibit, “units” are to be taken literally when applied to Shepherd’s block toys. Her skill relies, therefore, on the notion of restacking the blocks or “units” in diverse ways. Another example is the small blocks thrown, like dice, onto a flat surface, thus forming what appear to be random patterns. What’s also intriguing about the show are the books which accompany Shepherd’s work, evoking a mini-course in the way structure becomes the raison d’etre of art. Consider the suggested books on hand by Rem Koolhaas and about Sol Lewitt. The book covers are also great examples of graphic art, thus implying another influence on Shepherd’s work. There are other surprises awaiting us, however: pieces that are not made of wood at all, yet are still geometric, including silkscreen

Regardless of Shepherd’s possible sources and the exhibit’s effect, there’s also a possible philosophical implication of the artist’s stackable toys. Or maybe a better word would be “metaphysical” implication. Does Shepherd see the world’s current stateof-affairs as “coming apart,” like her pieces, where things are not as tangible and solid as they might be? The current show will be on view at East Hampton’s Glenn Horowitz Bookseller until Nov. 10.

Let’s face it. When it comes to blocks of wood, nothing beats Louise Nevelson’s sculpture. Even so, Kate Shepherd’s works, now at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, have considerable charm. When combined with items like relevant books and shelving, the entire exhibit becomes more than Shepherd’s pieces. Simply put, the arrangement of paperbacks and hardcovers on glass tables, placed with the artist’s block toys, materializes into an instal-

By T.J. Clemente Perhaps in the last decade more work has been done on existing homes throughout America than in any other period of time in this country’s history. With equity loans, many homeowners went about improving one of their biggest investments, their homes. Out here on the East End, many watched their homes double in value and therefore seemed justified in putting in new wings, garages, state of the art bathrooms and expanded kitchens. No expenses were spared, with homeowners believing they were simply increasing the value of their investment. Huge blue tarps covering homes were seen on every block, not only on the East End but across America. Contractors and their employees were a common sight in Hamptons’ towns, working on almost every block. A few years back, it seemed impossible to find competent contractors to do the work. But in a conversation with Town of East Hampton Chief Building Inspector Donald T Sharkey, he noted that requests for new building permits are “noticeably down.” (A building permit is needed for all construction, major repairs and work done on existing homes.) Sharkey, on the job for over 22 years, has his inspectors going out and visiting each job site a minimum of seven times a year to make sure the work being done is what was applied for and is safe. Even with the financial problems going on down on Wall Street, a quick poll of his inspectors noted only one started job has been suspended for lack of

funds, and that one is in Wainscott. But despite reports from the building department, word on the street is that work has slowed. Tim Sharp, a local contractor who specializes in “green bathrooms,” as well as other “green” renovations, has seen the slow down of work done on homes and said it causing a “situation for foreign workers,” causing many to return home due to the lack of work. Sharkey said that he and his inspectors have not seen anything “drastic like” with projects stopping because of lack of funds to complete permitted work. He acknowledged that his department does not have requirements to prove the ability to finance the work being requested. Permit requests are usually made by either the owner or contractor, and no financial disclosure is involved. And Sharkey said the rate of requests for permit extensions,

which cost a minimum of $1,500, is about the same as always. But often, neighbors are more anxious than homeowners or developers for the work to be completed. Some homeowners looking to sell their properties are concerned that partially built structures might languish on their streets, creating eyesores that may cause even further devaluation of their investment, and raise eyebrows of potential buyers. But that doesn’t seem to be a looming issue — for now. And even if it were, there is little to be done about it as long as building permits are up to date. The only time the town would step in is if a structure became unsafe. Sharkey recalled leveling only two homes over the last 22 years for safety reasons, saying, “The elements, mostly water from rain, had made the abandoned structures unsafe.” He made a point of saying no one was living in either home, and they truly needed to be leveled. Sharkey does not see a huge trend of unfinished home construction eyesores on the immediate horizon. That’s good news for homeowners in East Hampton. However, there are large construction projects that may be affected by the present crisis in sub-prime mortgages causing foreclosures throughout the land. Only time will tell how the present housing situation will affect work on projects like the Bulova Watch Case Factory site in Sag Harbor — the mother of them all when it comes to the eyesore of stalled construction.

On the Edge: Feelin’ the Music in Your Very Bones By Victoria Cooper You’ve seen them all over the Hamptons: bikers, joggers and other outdoor enthusiasts who move to the beat of their iPods. But those little white ear buds — or even worse, the Bose noise canceling headphones — isolate exercisers from an outside world that’s full of cars, sirens and audible signals necessary for safety. For many exercisers, music is a motivating factor to get through the miles (I prefer Madonna when I’m sweating). Audio Bone Headphones, the latest product in headphone technology, safely allow bikers and joggers to do both, and safely too. The one and only requirement of these new headphones is that you have bones. Milk drinkers welcome. Blobs need not apply. Audio Bone promotes “ear free listening.” It’s been proven that we hear sounds through both our bones and our eardrums. The eardrum converts sound waves to vibrations and transmits them to the inner ear but there are some cases where sounds are heard directly by the inner ear, bypassing the eardrums. Experts suggest that this is the way that you hear your own voice, not to mention how whales hear. But it’s difficult to claim that Audio Bone is a new technology because it’s been around since Beethoven was composing music. (Beethoven, who was partially deaf, discovered bone conduction by finding a way to hear music through his jawbone — he attached a rod to his piano and clenched it in his teeth.) Until Audio

Bone, no product in the realm of bone conduction has offered high fidelity, calcium heavy, sound. In the Dan’s Papers office, there are a few of us, myself included, who use headphones to help shut out extraneous office distractions. But it seems more often than not that I have only one ear bud in so that I’m able to participate in necessary conversations or phone calls. Audio Bone is a great alternative because the headphones rest on the outside of my ears, making no audible noise to the desks near me (sometimes with ear buds or wrap around headphones noise leaks and coworkers can hear the low buzz of your tunes) while allowing me to be active in the workspace with my music. Aside from these benefits, the headphones are also waterproof. All you would have to do is purchase a waterproof mp3 player case or iPod case and you would be set for swimming OPEN HOUSE

at any of the East End beaches. Aside from looking a little strange coming out of the water, you’re actually contributing to your hearing health. Listening to loud sounds for an extended period of time can damage eardrums, and while bustin’ a move to the DJ may seem like fun when you’re young, it will eventually cause damage as you age. In this case, hearing music through your bones, the headphones serve as your actual eardrums as they decode sound waves and convert them into vibrations that can be received directly by the inner ear. Just imagine never having to wedge another uncomfortable ear bud into your cartilage or shudder at the notion of having to borrow headphones that have been in someone else’s ear.

Which North Fork Wines Go With What North Fork Dish? Vineyards, says, “Stuffed artichoke would be the 2004 Sherwood House Chardonnay, grilled tuna 2003 Sherwood House Chardonnay, fried calamari 2004 Sherwood House Chardonnay, Long Island Duck I’d do the Sherwood Manor (blend, this is full bodied and perfect for duck I just had it with duck the other night). Fried zucchini blossom? I’d do the 2007 Sherwood Rose or the Sherwood 2003 Cabernet Franc, for the liver I’d go with a 2004 Chardonnay. For Chilean seabass with lobster I would do the 2004 Chardonnay again or the 2002 Sherwood House Merlot and would do the Sherwood Manor for the sausage. Our resident expert had this to say for Clovis Point wines, “For the artichoke I would go with the 2005 Clovis Point Chardonnay, for the grilled tuna I would do the Clovis Point 2005 Cabernet Franc. For the calamari I would go with the 2005 Chardonnay, for the duck I would go for the Clovis Point 2005 Cabernet Franc. For fried zucchini I would have to go with the 2005 Chardonnay again, and for the sea bass with lobster I’m going to say the 2004 Merlot. For the liver I would do the 2005 Clovis Point Artifact. For the sausage I would go with the 2004 Merlot.”

Bridge Lane Rose. For the Long Island Duck I would go with Bridge Lane Merlot, for fried zucchini blossom, definitely the 2006 Bridge Lane Chardonnay and for the liver do the Bridge Lane Bubbly. For Chilean sea bass with lobster I would say the 2005 Lieb Reserve Chardonnay, for the sausage I would go with the 2005 Lieb Reserve Cabernet Franc. And I have to add that if you are going to go for oysters you definitely want the 2006 Lieb Pinot Blanc Reserve. Barbara Sherwood, owner of Sherwood House

To North Fork


On the North Fork we have some fabulous restaurants with some fabulous dishes. We also have some of the best wineries in the world. Add this to good food and you have, well, what a lot of people like to call heaven on earth. But just what wine goes with what? You can leave it up to your waiter to help you decide of course, and almost all of them are highly knowledgeable. But we decided to go to the experts for some of the North Fork’s best dishes at some of the finest restaurants there. The Old Mill Inn, located in Mattituck, offers a wonderful Freshly Fried Peconic Calamari and a Long Island Duck, which is a free-range duck breast spice rubbed and pan seared, with fresh plum reduction, faro and black currant pilaf and local autumn vegetables. A Touch Of Venice in Mattituck offers a fantastic stuffed artichoke with breadcrumbs, pecorino romano, olive oil, fresh herbs, garlic and shallots as a starter and an amazing grilled tuna Capri with ev olive oil, fresh tomato, capers, sundried tomatoes, olives and comes with roasted potatoes. Jamesport Manor offers a fantastic fried zucchini blossom appetizer that is light and crisp and its signature entréée is the calves liver, pan seared with caramelized Vidalia onions, applewood smoked bacon, roast potatoes and baby carrots. Legends in New Suffolk on the North Fork offers an amazing Chilean sea bass with lobster and wild mushrooms for an entréée. To start the sausage and shrimp in wonton saucers with basil garlic and ginger is a big rave there. According to our experts, here are the pairings you should go with these dishes. Ron Goerlar, Jamesport Vineyard Owner says, “For the stuffed artichoke I would go with our 2006 Estate Chardonnay and for the grilled tuna I would go with the East End Cinq. For the fried peconic bay calamari I would have our East End Savigon Blanc and for the Long Island Duck I’d do a 2005 Cabernet Franc. For the zucchini blossom I would go with an East End Rose and for the calves liver I’d take our 2003 Estate Merlot. For the Legends appetizer I’d go with our 2006 Riesling and for the entréée I would go with our 2005 Sarah’s Hill Pinot Noir.” Melissa Schwartz of Lieb Cellars says, “2004 Lieb Blanc de Blancs for the artichoke, Bridge Lane Cabernet Franc for the tuna or the 2007

Dan’s North Fork

Digger O’Dell’s 58 West Main Street, Riverhead, 631-369-3200 When I walk into Digger O’Dells, always the welcome is warm and gracious and you can see this happening to everyone coming in. The bar area is everything a bar should be and the dining areas are well spaced and the whole place just seems like a fun place to be, whether you are there primarily to eat or to drink. It really is reminiscent of an Irish or British pub, although most of these do not serve food to Digger’s standards. The term ‘gastropub’ was coined in the UK a few years ago to denote pubs that served food considered to be well above the norm as far as pub food is concerned and Digger’s could readily claim that distinction without any degree of argument. However ‘gastropub’ is a bit affected and Digger’s is anything

but affected. Here you will find food that satisfies you without emptying your wallet and that is increasingly important in the current economic climate. The menu may look extensive but owner Stephen Wirth is insistent on everything being fresh and well cooked. We started our meal with one of their specialties, Irish Beer Mussels steamed in ‘Dublin’s Liffey Water’ - that’s Guinness Stout to the uninitiated - and finished with cream, garlic and butter and served with some great garlic bread for mopping up duties. Jumbo coconut shrimp were coated with panko breadcrumbs and the result was crisp, tasty and the mustard dipping sauce added an extra zest. Both of these are well recommended as are the famous ‘Father Solan’ baked

clams that we always enjoy but passed on this time in order to try out something different. Soups at Digger’s are hearty and tasty and the special of the house is an unusual combination of hot and sweet sausage with cabbage in a zesty tomato broth, something great for a chilly fall or winter evening. Knowing the size of the portions here, we skipped the soup and went to the main courses. Again, it is almost a question of being spoilt for choice for it is almost impossible to believe that anyone could not find something appealing to their appetite and tastes. Main courses also come with a choice of soup or salad plus potato and a vegetable selection. Now this is another instance of Digger’s beating the norm. Too often ‘vegetable selection’ means a tired and often excessively al dente melange but not here. We enjoyed to the full the carrot, yellow and green squash that came perfectly cooked with our main course Meat is very important at Digger’s, the prime rib is Black Angus and the dish we enjoyed, the ‘smaller’ queen cut of only 16oz, compared to the massive 24oz king cut, was everything that roast beef should be. Perfectly cooked as ordered with succulent au jus to bring out the full deep tastes of the beef. I have previously commented that the beef here would grace a specialty steak house and again this was true. The insistence on quality extends to the burgers which are also made from this Black Angus meat. For our other main course we selected one of the Irish specialties, chicken pot pie. I am an unashamed lover of all forms of meat and chicken pies and this one was full of taste with a bottom pie crust filled with a mixture of white meat chicken, carrots, peas, celery, onions and mushrooms in a creamy sauce topped with very good mashed potatoes. A simple dish, again one that I grew up with. Albeit in a slightly different format, and this was a very good example of how simplicity and good ingredients are always the best. There was little space left to explore the dessert offerings but we did just make a taste of a very large portion of a Bailey’s chocolate cake that was great. Go on line to to see all the specials they offer because it may be Italian night or BBQ night or seafood or steak night. Happy Hour is from 4 to 6pm Monday to Friday with a special bar menu and there is live music on Thursday and Friday and recently Stephen introduced a Country and Western band that was so well received that they will probably be featured on the last Saturday of each month. On October 20 to 27, Riverhead will be staging its own ‘Restaurant Week’ and Digger’s will be participating in this with special offerings, including a prix fixe of $21.95 which will also be available as a wine or beer pairing for $28.95. -Roy Bradbrook

Over The Barrel... with Lenn Thompson

Bring On The Reds Now that the summer has ended and the temperatures have cooled, I’m back to drinking a lot more red wine. And, as we all know, red wines — particularly merlot and merlot-heavy blends — tend to be what Long Island winemakers do best year in and year out. So, I guess you could say that my palate is at the right place at the right time yet again. You’ve also heard before that 2005 was a great vintage for those Long Island producers able to weather the up to 18 inches of rain that drowned vineyards in early October. Up to that point, the 2005 growing season has been hot and dry, resulting in extremely ripe, small berries that packed intense flavors rarely seen, if ever, on Long Island. Several red wines from that vintage have received critical acclaim, despite their youth, and as more and more hit the market, I’d expect more of the same. Two merlot-heavy 2005 reds have stood out for me in past weeks. Raphael’s 2005 La Fontana ($30 at the winery), a blend of 80% merlot, 15% cabernet franc, 3% malbec and 2% petit Verdot shows off the year’s ripeness well. It is medium-dark garnet in the glass and is very old world on the nose. Dark fruit aromas of blackberry, black cherry and black plum inter-

mingle with those of earthy tobacco, thyme, mint and subtle spice. Right out of the bottle, secondary non-fruit flavors like tobacco, black pepper and herbs are more prominent. But with just a few moments in the glass, black and red fruit flavors emerge, unfurling to fill the mouth from start to finish. The tannins are ripe but still bring good structure, pointing to a fine future ahead. The finish lingers with a delicious minty note. Osprey’s Dominion Vineyards is a North Fork producer that just doesn’t get enough credit... and I’m not sure why. People who dismiss ODV as a winery for the masses are missing out on some real gems…… like Osprey’s Dominion Vineayrds 2005 Reserve Merlot ($35 at the winery). Most wineries say that they only make “reserve” wines in the best of growing seasons, but Osprey’s Dominion, at

least when it comes to merlot, actually follows through on that statement. This is only the second time winemaker Adam Suprenant has made a reserve merlot, the other being from 2002. The nose on this still-young red is a little taut at first, but vigours swirling helps unleash beautiful ripe cherry, plum and blackberry aromas that are accented by vanilla and mint notes. From the first sip, I was impressed by this wines mouthfeel... silky with dusty, ripe tannins that bring great structure without being astringent. The fruit is ripe and forward here, but this isn’t a fruit bomb. That minty character from the nose shows up on the midpalate and carries through a medium-long finish. This is a wine with many great years ahead. For now, decant it for at least an hour, probably longer. To learn more about these wines or to order, visit and

Recession (Red, White and) Blues By Christopher S. Miller So you pulled the corks on a couple of 1982 Lafites because you thought the world was ending. But the next day you woke up, maybe with some great memories and a slight hangover, and the sun rose, albeit on a very different economy. Now what will you drink? An awful lot of smart money people are searching for answers these last couple of weeks as to exactly what has happened on Wall Street and Main Street. This leaves me wondering how the collective markets’ wine palate will react. Looking backwards is easy, and in some cases a bit scary. I’m not so sure anymore that remortgaging the house to invest in Bordeaux futures was a great idea, but it’s too late for remorse. Let’s look forward instead. Some questions I am as clueless about as those discussing financial issues in DC and on Wall Street. Will the wine industry bubble pop? My guess is that Bordeaux’s Chateau Petrus and Burgundy’s Domaine de la Romanee Conti and their ilk will always have more demand than product, so they will continue to demand crazy high prices. Chateau Petrus is only 28.17 acres as compared to California’s Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, which has a total of 229 acres under cultivation. La Romanee Conti vineyard is all of 4.47 acres and La Tache (another rarified Burgundian property) is 14.97 acres. The logical conclusion is that a slowing economy will affect the demand of Stag’s Leap wines more than those of Petrus or DRC. So for those of you whose “golden parachute� has some holes, you might want to cancel those Bordeaux and Burgundy orders and look for some alternative wines to consume till the recession (or whatever the pundits decide it is) subsides. If, however, your parachute is still in good order and has

Some Market Speculators Awash in First Growths, But What Will the Rest of Us Drink Now?

a promising future, stop reading this and give me a call. I may be willing to part with some wine from my cellar – to pay the mortgage, of course. (Visit You may e-mail Chris from the site.) For the rest of you (i.e. most of us) here are some thoughts on how the current economic meltdown may affect wine consumers on normal budgets. The recent, drastic increase in interest in wine generally has done both wonderful and bad things to the industry. I would put the increase in ego and arrogance on the negative side. By that I mean producers, importers, distributors, sommeliers and wine store owners who feel the customer is fair game for them to dupe into spending more and more money on pricey wines. It boggles my mind to ponder all the wines I’ve tasted for business purposes over the past five years about which I have thought, gee, that’s a nice wine for 30 dollars only to find the actual price to be many times that because of some rating or prestigious vineyard site that doesn’t really affect the actual wine. On the plus side, a positive thing has happened to the wine industry as a result of this increased interest, and it is precisely what will help keep our wine habit afloat during an economic realignment. I refer to the great thirst that our wine geeks, sommeliers and other wine professionals have for discovering and exploring the next hot wine region, grape or wine style. This thirst has driven the quality up in regions such as Southern Italy, Austria, South Africa and Argentina, to name just a few. The difference in the wines available in most wine

stores and restaurants between 1987 or even 2001 (our last couple of serious economic adjustments) and today has vastly expanded. Today we have Gruner Veltliner from Austria, Negroamaro from Puglia, Lagrein from Alto-Adige, Malbec from Mendoza and plenty of others. In 1987 New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc was just starting to be planted in Marlborough. Today it is not only widely available but also highly popular with consumers. In the wine world it has indeed been a very exciting 20 years since Black Friday. When we’re flush with cash we don’t need to be too imaginative. We can buy all the famous and expensive wines we can get our greedy little hands on, such as 1982 Chateau Petrus or 1995 Romanee-Conti. Anyone with a fat bank account can buy these showy stars. But lesser economic times demand creativity in wine purchasing. It is during these times that our knowledge and inquisitiveness about wine will serve us well. A few weeks ago Eric Asimov, of The New York Times, wrote about the values that can be found in French wines. While I agree totally, France is not the only great wine country where values can be found. Unfortunately, I have been around wine for so long that when I taste a really fine wine that is a very good value today, I still remember when the same wine was 20, 30 or even 50 percent less expensive. In this case I am thinking of a wine I had the other day, a Terre Negroamaro from the Puglia region in the heel of Italy. Negroamaro is a little (continued on next page)

indigenous grape that offers aromas of black raspberry, spices (pepper, etc.) and sometimes a floral or perfume note. I personally find wellmade Negroamaros have flavors similar to wines from the Rhone Valley. If I could taste this lovely, spicy red wine without any reference I would be very happy paying the $10 or $11 that it costs in a store. But I have traveled to Puglia and know the wine industry there is not far from its historic roots as a bulk wine producing region where such wines were commonly sold for a few dollars a gallon. In this economy, I really need to forget the recent vinous history of Puglia and see what a great value it is in comparison to wines from the Rhone, Australia and California. Some other Italian regions and grapes to look toward for value are Abruzzo for Montepulciano, Marche for Montepulciano blended with Sangiovese, Alto-Adige for Lagrein and Pinot Nero (Noir), Sicily for Nero d’Avola, and Basilicata, Campania and Puglia for Aglianico. There are others, but that should be a good start, especially considering how short this soft economy will be (we all hope). Another vast area for wine values is South Africa. Here the wines have increased in quality faster than they have in price (I hope no South African producers are reading this). While South Africa has several diverse regions, at this point in our economy the region is less impor-

I’m not so sure anymore that remortgaging the house to invest in Bordeaux futures was a great idea ... tant than the producers, importers and grapes. The varietals in South Africa that are most important right now are Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc. For Chenin Blanc, my favorite is from Bruwer Raats, who produces only Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc, two underdog grapes with roots in the Loire Valley of France. Both his Chenin Blancs are very good values at two separate price points. “The Original” is crisp and clean with bright citrus fruits and some red apple notes. It is un-oaked to highlight the fruit and costs about $12. The other Chenin is produced in a richer style using grapes from older vines getting some gentle oak treatment and, though more expensive, still a very fine value at about $22. The Cabernet Franc is also excellent though not quite the value of the other two at about $28. For Sauvignon Blanc there are many options, including Iona from the tiny region of Elgin overlooking the dangerous Cape of Good Hope currents.

This area is well known for its cool climate, which suits Sauvignon Blanc just fine. I’d consider this to be a sleek version of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with more elegance and finesse. It should be found for about $17. If you’re looking for something a bit less expensive try Fairvalley Sauvignon Blanc, which can be found for less than $10 a bottle. Ironically, good things often come about as the result of negative ones. The market downturn is causing stress for most Americans, for sure. But it is also providing us with an opportunity to be creative in our wine choices, and though we cannot all seem to agree on exactly what is happening in these difficult times, expanding our knowledge is always a very good thing. Maybe it’s true after all that sometimes sour grapes can indeed make the sweetest wine.

Letter from the Wine Guide Editor By Susan Whitney Simm Fall is an anxious time in the wine industry. Vineyard managers the world over keep one eye on the grapes and the other on the sky. This fall is also an anxious time for wine consumers, many of whom are suddenly finding themselves having to scale back from their old high-end drinking habits. In the lead story of this Wine Guide, “Recession (Red, White and) Blues� on page 46, senior writer Chris Miller addresses the issue with suggestions about where to find value today. Some of his ideas may surprise you, others will confirm what you have already discovered, and all will offer educated advice about today’s wine market. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Marco and Ann Marie Borghese, owners of Castello di Borghese in Cutchogue. The winery received both a gold medal and “Best in Class� for its 2006 Chardonnay and a silver each for its 2007 Sauvignon Blanc, 2005 Pinot Noir and 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve at the 2008 New York Food & Wine Classic, now in its 23rd year. All wines are tasted blind and judged by professionals in the industry. As the founding vineyard on Long Island’s North Fork, Borghese has some of the oldest vines in the region and produces fruit-driven, food-friendly wines. Marco’s maxim, “good wine is first made in the field,� perfectly illustrates the Borgheses’ dedication to their craft from vineyard to bottle.

Steps in Fighting the Aging Process Fighting the aging process usually consists of three steps. First are creams and oils marketed to erase wrinkles, reduce bags and make skin “appear” smoother. Next, the use of injectible products such as collagen, Restylane® and BOTOX. The final step in the search for the fountain of youth is plastic surgery. To know which step is right for you, one must understand how aging affects your skin in terms of quality and quantity. Quality changes cause the skin to look heavy, wrinkled and irregularly colored. Changes in quantity appear as loose tissue in the neck, jaw line, jowls, cheek pads sagging, eyes with fat protruding beneath and skin hooding above. Consumers spend many millions every year on skin care products. Everyone’s medicine cabinet is loaded with products that were barely used because they didn‘t work. Certainly, some topical products have a place in fighting aging…exfoliants that contain fruit acid ingredients like lglycolics, vitamin A derivatives like Retin-A or vitamin C derivatives like Ascorbic Acid. In addition, a pigment stabilizer like hydroquinones helps with the irregularly pigmented appearance of aging skin – 2% solutions are available without a prescription. The injectable products or muscle function softeners and volume deficiency fillers are the next step one considers in the attempt to try to look younger. The results obtained are an improvement over creams and oils, but can be costly, since they usually just last for a few months before another round of injections is needed. When facing the issue of quantity of aging skin due to fullness or lack of there in, requires one to do their homework to find a surgeon who understands your concerns and has the tools and know how to address your individual aging issues. Such a surgeon is Dr. Paul Kelly MD, FACS of Peconic Facial Plastic Surgery, who specializes in state of the art cosmetic procedures that can make you look up to 10 years younger.

As the cool, crisp, fall weather sets in, our need for warmer footwear becomes more and more essential. Wearing boots with skirts, dresses, jeans or tailored pants is part of our everyday wardrobe. There are a variety of fashionable boots this season including ankle, knee high, “booties” (a shoe-like boot) and flat boots (like the very popular Uggs). Before stepping out into a new pair, decide on three key factors: style, budget and comfort. The distinction between each style is very different. The following are this season’s hot picks in the riding boot category: Tory Burch Jackson Leather Riding Boot (priced at $495, made with a stacked rubber sole and leather lining-available at Bloomingdales), Burberry Medallion Riding Boot (grainy black leather priced at $995, available at Nordstrom) and Juicy Couture Riding Boots (black-leather lining and sole-priced at $625, available at Saks Fifth Avenue). Popular bootie picks include: Kate Spade’s Suede Slip Bootie On (with laces, priced at $348, available at Saks Fifth Avenue), Marc by Marc Jacobs Round-toe Bootie (with smooth patent leather and padded insole, priced at $495, available at Saks Fifth Avenue). When it comes to comfort there are a few favorites in the running that include Cole Haan, Aquatalia by Marvin K and Uggs. Australian’s sheepskin Ugg (also known as Ug Ugh) has been around for nearly 200 years. The term was deemed as a generic name meaning short and ugly. Who would have thought all these years later this once “ugly” boot would be worn by celebrities and fashion gurus around the globe? This snug, cozy, soft boot is not only fashionable, but also great for the cold weather. A few standout

styles include Elsey (priced at $300, available in black, chestnut and espresso suede lace-up with wedge heel), Ultimate Tall Braid (priced at $200, available in chocolate, black and espresso) and Sundance II (priced at $200, available in sand, chestnut and black). Check out for a full catalogue of styles and descriptions. Various styles are also available at department stores and local shoe boutiques on the East End. Italian made Aquatalia footwear is known for their comfort and trendy styles. Log on to or check out department stores such as Bloomingdales for full color pictures and styles. Don’t miss: Crocco Patent or suede leather heeled boot (priced at $475 and $495, available in black and chianti-tall style with microfiber weatherproof lining), Plushy (weatherproof suede wedge heel, priced at $395, available in black and espresso, with a resistant rubber sole) and finally Aquatalia’s stylish Avery (priced at $425, available in black, brown and chianti patent leather-with a quilted back panel and faux fur lining). Celebrating its 80th Anniversary this year, Cole Haan also offers a plethora of great comfortable trendy boots this season. Check out: the Sierra Air Tall Boot (priced at $495, available in black suede and patent) and Fabrizia Tall Boot (priced at $595, available in brown, with a comfortable rubber sole). The list of hot boots for this season can go on and on. Get some ideas online and then check out your local shoe boutiques for great options.

Go Fish


By Rich Firstenberg

Total Collapse in 2048, 50+ pound Bass for Now tells us a flyfishing client caught and released 24 false albacore and many bluefish. There are also striped bass and bluefish being caught at the ocean beaches. Ken Morse of Tight Lines Tackle, Sag Harbor, reports some of his boating clients, fishing northeast of Plum Gut in 40 to 60-foot depths, caught blackfish up to nine pounds and several sea bass. There are also reports of blackfish at the brickyards area west of Greenport and north of Shelter Island. (Keeper-size for blackfish is a minimum of 14 inches.) Striped bass are being caught at the Ruins north of Gardiner’s Island. Scott at East End Bait and Tackle, Hampton Bays, says boats trolling with wire line and umbrella rigs just outside the Shinnecock inlet are catching 30 to 40 stripers per trip, many of them keeper-sized (minimum 28 inches). At the Ponquogue Bridge, fishermen are catching stripers with clams and bunker chunks. Offshore, there has been a bluefin tuna bite 35 miles south of Montauk; the tuna are in the 30-pound range with bigger fish mixed in. Look for the commercial draggers and you can find the schools of tuna. Dr Ellen Pikitch, executive director of the Jack Yee

Coastal water temperature is dropping a little each day, so bait in the creeks, bays and inlets is starting to head south. Bluefish, striped bass and other predators are going after the bait and we have been seeing great blitzes of these predator fish this fall. In Montauk, there are large numbers of blues, stripers and false albacore being caught by boat anglers and surfcasters. There is action at Camp Hero especially at sunrise and sunset. Last weekend, surfcaster Willie Young caught a 52.12 poundstriped bass on a bottle plug at night. This puts him in first place in the striper division of the ongoing Montauk Locals Surfasting Tournament. The tournament runs through December 1; information, registration and weigh-ins for the tournament are at Paulie’s Tackle Shop, 631-688-5520. All the Montauk charter and party boats have been catching loads of fish. The charter boat Wake brought in bluefish and striped bass up to 38 pounds. One angler on the Barbara Ann had a 57.15-pound striper and another on the Lady Grace has a 43-pound striper. Offshore charters have also been bringing home good catches. The Ventura brought in a 328-pound bluefin tuna which took more than 3 hours to secure, and the Betty Lisa, fishing at the west Atlantis canyon, had an 85-pound yellowfin tuna and a 125-pound swordfish caught at night. Harvey Bennett of Amagansett’s Tackle Shop

Institute for Ocean Conservation Sciences (now headquartered at Stony Brook University’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences), presented some mind-boggling statistics about the fish population off the northeastern U.S. coast at her public talk last Friday evening. Past research shows there were more than 11 tons of fish per square kilometer in northeast coastal waters in 1900 but, by 2000, most of those fish were gone. She estimates almost total collapse of world fisheries by 2048. As reported here last week, some of this is due to marine habitat destruction (especially by commercial fisherman from all countries dragging nets across the ocean floor which destroys marine plant life and captures other marine life besides the desired species), and much to overfishing. Marine scientists are learning that different species take many more years to mature and reproduce than originally thought. Catching tons of adults of one species and not allowing them time to reproduce just about guarantees collapse of that species. Some of the disappearing fish Dr. Pikitch spoke about are orange roughy, sturgeon and sharks. For fishing or hunting questions, email me at

Montauk Point and the Last of the Paumanok Path One mile east of East Lake Drive is the entrance to Theodore Roosevelt County Park. From here, we walk the last and most spectacular six miles of the 130-mile Paumanok Path (PP). Park by Third House, headquarters for the Park and soon-to-be museum. The original structure, built in 1747, was home for the livestock overseer. In 1898, at the end of the Spanish American War, Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders were quarantined at Third House to recuperate from yellow fever. A short walk up the driveway to the right of the cabins will bring you to a gate chained closed. Beyond the gate, to the left are grasslands and to the right, pasture for Deep Hollow Ranch, the oldest cattle ranch in the USA. On the fence enclosing the pasture are the white blazes of the PP. Unlatch the chain, walk through the gate, and re-latch. Follow the blazes on the fence posts. The trail travels gradually upslope to a grassy knoll that offers a view of Lake Montauk. Follow the trail to the right around a post and rail barrier. For the next mile, blazing is sparse. Walk along the fence looking for a blaze to the left; it takes you shortly away from the fence. Soon the trail leads you through a very tight kissing gate. Follow the fence around another right turn. Here, the trail runs through lush vegetation. Travel upslope to a Nature Conservancy grassland restoration sign; turn right. Continue upslope to Cornergate Ridge, about one mile from Third House. From here, look north to Oyster Pond and the Sound beyond, east to the huge antenna at Camp Hero and South towards the verdant wetlands that feed Ogden’s Brook as it winds its way to Oyster Pond. Follow a terraced trail down-slope. Cross a bridal path intersection; bear to the right. After a short distance, reach a post and rail fence

with round blue plastic blazes and a PP right turn blaze. Here the PP is sharing the trail corridor with the Ogden’s Brook Trail. As you approach an arm of Oyster Pond, the trail descends into wetlands. Passing Hetty’s Hole, phragmites to your left indicate wetlands nearby. It’s rumored that Hetty, a Montauket Indian, road her horse into the wetlands here on a cold, rainy night, and met her untimely demise. As we travel along the southern shore of Oyster Pond, the trail intersects two other paths; a “Y” intersection, where the PP continues to the left, and then straight across the wider trail. These two trails run south, join, and lead to parking at the Oyster Pond Overlook. The trail is now marked with the white blazes of the PP and the plastic round blue blazes of the Ogden’s Brook Trail. Continuing along the south shore of Oyster Pond, several boardwalks built by State Parks take you through fern-covered wetlands punctuated with boulders, and then over Ogden’s Brook Bridge. The East Hampton Trails Preservation Society designed this bridge. The National Guard air-lifted by helicopter, pre-cut materials to this remote location. After crossing a second smaller bridge, the trail brings you along the shore of the pond offering a view of water teaming with a variety of seabirds. Follow Ogden’s Brook Trail north along the eastern shore of the pond. Where the trail splits, turn right onto a woods road, south to Montauk Highway. About three miles from Third House, the trail crosses over the highway offset a short distance to

the west. Cross over the guardrail by a flexi-stake marker. Here the round white plastic markers of the Point Woods Trail accompany the white painted rectangles of the PP. For a little more than a mile, this well-engineered trail wends its way south through a jungle of oversized holly, laurel, black birch, beech, and swamp maple. It winds around wetlands, protected from weather and salt spray by the Atlantic facing bluffs. Cross over three wooden bridges, then walk on rocks across a brook. The trail takes you through a gap in a chain link fence, and soon weaves through a jumble of erratics. It then takes you to the Battery 112 trail, to concrete bunkers; be alert for the right turn that takes you back into the woods. Follow rocks across a brook, then cross two wooden bridges; soon turn left onto the wide unpaved Old Montauk Highway. Two hundred yards beyond the turn, leave the PP, turn right; a short walk brings you out to a spectacular vista of the bluffs and ocean. Returning to the PP you’ll find the remainder of the trail sparsely marked. There are several more bluff-top overlooks, just follow your nose for about a mile, and you’ll end up by Turtle Cove. Instead of getting onto the road here, you can walk the rock revetment around the base of the lighthouse. I’ve seen people slip on these rocks; be careful. Several trails take you up to the road; there’s a trail parallel to the beach that leads to the trails map kiosk by the side of the concession stand. To find more walks on Long Island visit

Yogalates: A Healthy Marriage By Emily J Weitz Over the past 10 years, both yoga and Pilates have grown in popularity to become two of the most practiced wellness disciplines in the country. But when you ask someone if they’ve ever tried yoga, it is not uncommon to hear the response, “Oh, no. I do Pilates,” or vice versa, as if the two are mutually exclusive. The fact is, yoga and Pilates are markedly different practices that, in turn, have varied benefits and can complement each other. Yoga is a 5,000-year-old discipline from India that focuses on the breath, and it uses strength and flexibility to help open the energetic channels of the body. Pilates was developed by westerner Joseph Pilates in the 1920s as a practical way to help people engage their cores to navigate through injury and to strengthen the body. By using techniques from both, some practitioners say you can get the best of both worlds. Yogalates was founded by Louise Solomon, an Australian woman. Solomon had been a devoted yoga practitioner for years when she sustained an injury during her yoga practice. She moved on to Pilates, which she felt offered more support for her injury. She fell in love with the method and went on to become a certified Pilates instructor. She had been teaching Pilates for over two years when she realized she was missing something in her practice: it was yoga. Even though Pilates fulfilled her physical needs, there was something from her yoga practice that she longed for. She missed the ambience and the spiritual connection of yoga, so she returned to the discipline. This time, she brought her knowledge of Pilates with her. Solomon incorporated core stability (a Pilates fun-

damental) into the yoga practice, and she trademarked it as Yogalates. Since then, she has traveled the world teaching her method, and has trained instructors and created a Yogalates manual. From yoga, the mother and Pilates, the father, Yogalates was born. Out here on the East End, there is pretty much a yoga studio in every town. And if you look up Pilates, you’ll find that instructors abound. But Yogalates is just making its way to this corner of the Earth, and for those who have been intrigued, but not entirely satisfied by either one or the other, this may be the answer. The Ward Melville Heritage Organization in Riverhead is offering Yogalates at its Educational and Cultural Center in Stony Brook. The teacher, Desiree Tyers, believes that “Yogalates is meant to meet people wherever they are in their lives. It can transform their lives if they open themselves up to it.” She explains that her classes begin with yoga and end with Pilates. For the first half of class, Tyers sets up a yogic breath, in and out through the nose. Then she sets a strong metaphorical connection to the physical experience. For example, if the students are in Warrior II, with feet spread wide and one hand forward and one hand back, she asks them to visualize the backhand as their past and the front hand as

their futures. Then she reminds them that even with their past and futures connected, they are rooted firmly in the present. Then, with this spiritual connection in place, Tyers leads students into Pilates. The breath transitions from in and out through the nose to in through the nose and out through pursed lips. Using this focus on the breath, she asks students to strengthen their cores. As they inhale, she encourages that they shorten the core, and as they exhale, she leads them to lengthen it. As Tyers explained the aspects of yoga and Pilates that were incorporated into her teaching, I felt like she was speaking two languages. Because I am more familiar with yoga, she told me she’d explain it in “yoga speak.” But the fact that she could describe Pilates actions in yoga terms goes to show the common thread between the two disciplines, a thread that Tyers has mastered. While Yogalates is still growing in popularity, Tyers may be offering Master Classes at studios on the East End so that the discipline has an opportunity to expand. For now, you can find her at the Ward Melville Heritage Organization in Riverhead on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 7 p.m. Classes run through December. Each class is $15, or $55 for a four class series. For reservations or more information, contact (631) 689-5888 or visit

Earthly Delights

By April Gonzales

Does the Name “Ruby Begonia” Ring a Bell? they are hardy in zones 6-9, but mine has just gotten bigger over the years and has been cheerfully blooming away for months. Other annuals like the Profusion series of zinnias bloomed constantly as well, but besides some of the new fuchsia varieties that we experimented with this year, very few flowers do as well as begonias in the shade. Except impatiens that is…

about using it in other shade gardens. It grows quite large up to 2’ and blooms for a very long time starting in mid summer, with long pendulous pink flowers that are in their glory right now. Lately, I stumbled across these in a nursery and grabbed dozens. Begonia grandis evansiana may not be the exact variety that I have going full bore amongst the Brunnera right now but it’s a very close relative. The catalogue, now that I’m reading it after the fact of having bought so many and planting them freely cross the Hamptons, says that

What to Do Now: Make room somewhere for all those boxes of bulbs that are about to arrive. Sorting them always gives me a headache, just because I order so many and hate to sort them. But the only problem you might run up against is a slight skin reaction to the fungicide used on Hyacinth bulbs so remember to wear gloves – we love those disposable latex ones for a job like this so as not to get anything permanently on our regular gloves that might give us a rash later. Washing with dish soap after handling is also helpful. For more than 20 years, April Gonzales has been involved in garden design, installation and maintenance on the East End, as well as specimen plant scouting and site supervision for landscape architects.

Now that the summer is officially over and Columbus Day marks the season to start planting bulbs, I’m taking the time to look back over the beds and pots and evaluate what annuals and new perennials did well and what burned out. I was motivated in part by the Ball Seed Catalogue that came in the mail. The gorgeous pictures of the plant material that they’ll be offering next year made me wonder about not only what performed well, but what I might like to replace the experimental failures with next year. Some plants just give me so much pleasure and seem almost fool proof, so I reorder them each year. Every gardener has his or her list of favorites. For the shade I simply cannot say enough about begonias. I am partial to non-stops, which have big peony like flowers in every color but purple. Pinks, salmon and orange topped the list this year. We planted them in pots in mass groupings under an arbor, pots in the shade of big old Crimson King maples and in window boxes on the north side of the house. They bloomed non-stop as usual, throwing out continual color with large size blooms for months. We also put some fantastic clear yellow ones in with the lantana in another window box under an awning, that gave a great color complement and flower contrast. There are a large number of new Angel Wing varieties that are fascinating in leaf and flower like Anna Feil, which has green leaves with a burgundy reverse and cascades of salmon pink flowers. A pot of these is actually placed on top of a manhole cover in the lawn under some old sugar maples. No one ever notices what the pot is standing on because the begonias are so elegant. There are others with silver speckled foliage that I did not try but saw elsewhere and may experiment with next year. For pure foliage there are two rex begonias that I adore. Hurricane Bay has a frosty silver white leaf with no flowers. It is perfect because it makes a “muffin top” of a plant mass in the pots that are in deep shade. I occasionally remember to water them and in the earlier part of the summer, when it rained, I never even bothered. Boston Cherries and Chocolate is equally gorgeous albeit quite different, the leaves are a deep burgundy with splashes of pink that we potted in mass and also in a mixture with Winter Sun Tornado. This has a larger multicolored leaf of greens, silvers, pink and burgundy. These are all in urns in heavy shade under maples and an old fir and yet their colorful leaves still add a spark to these darker areas that few flowers can. They are outstanding, and one client brought them in for the winter, as she could not stand to put them on the compost pile. Begonias take well to this as they fare fine in diminished light and can tolerate drier soils. Over watering will rot them and make the stems fall apart. If I try only one other of these wonderful Rex begonias it will be Devil’s Paradise, which the Landcraft catalogue describes as “A delicious combination of silver and raspberry on spiral star shaped leaves.” But that is not all that I will experiment with, Begoinia parviflora grows to 5-6’ in one season. The leaves are 12”-16” with a few white flowers, this strong foliage statement might look good with hostas or voodoo lilly. Years ago Marie Donnelly gave me a small piece of a perennial begonia and for some reason I have walked by this plant for years without ever thinking

HIFF Children’s Shorts – Not your Typical Cartoons For people who still consider cartoons a children’s medium, I have two words. South Park. The Simpsons, The Triplettes of Belleville. Okay, that was more than two. The variety of style in animation is in many ways much more exciting than what live action film has to offer. The sky is the limit when it comes to characters and what they can be made to do. Kids cartoons have come a long way from Rocky and Bullwinkle and Popeye (although both were brilliant). So it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that the three short films I screened from the Hamptons International Film Festival’s Children’s Shorts program tended toward sophisticated animation for adults rather than the mindless Saturday cartoons we all grew up on (and, as my neurotic friends and I like to add, “and look how we turned out”). But despite the ingenious animation of two of the films and their great appeal to grown-ups, our fiveyear-old son went crazy for all of them. So we’re all excited to see the full program of eight shorts. One of the three was the clear winner for our son: a black and white Flash animation that is probably the history of American/European civilizations in 4 minutes, called Last Time in Clerkenwell by Alex Budovsky, a Russian born artist who lives in New York (website: The visuals, almost cut outs, are completely engaging. The

music, a jazzy scat tune by a member of the band, The Real Tuesday Weld, is absolutely infectious. Our son asked to watch it again and again (which didn’t even bother me) and woke me up the next morning singing the tune. It is hilarious. The second favorite of the three was Papiroflexia (Spanish for origami) by Joaquin Baldwin, a young animator and web designer from Paraguay (, with a lovely score by Nick Fevola, played by nine real musicians! It’s a beautiful film in every way, as the lead character folds his surroundings and himself out of urban ugliness into natural splendor. The last short we watched was Academania, a 7-minute live action film by Gina Guerrieri. A curmudgeon-ish old professor is given a gift of yellow socks by a secret admirer. He reluctantly puts them on and everything in his life changes. This skews more toward junior high kids and older, but our son got it and loved it. None of these films have dialogue, making them easy to take in for kids of any age, and totally engaging and enjoyable. HIFF’s Children’s Shorts program, which is 120 minutes long, is on Sat., Oct. 18 at noon in Southampton, and Sun., Oct. 19 at 1:00 in Montauk. For more information, go to

Pet Food Labels: Confusing at Best, Deceptive at Worst

Susan Galardi

I’ve been researching every source I can think of on the Internet to get an exact, spelled out definition of what exactly “Made in USA” means? How much of the product is actually made here, and does it contain foreign materials? I’ve been on the FTC website for about two hours and have called every phone number listed and then some, but only get recordings and no answers. It’s doubtful now that anyone will return my calls even though I did leave several messages, and even tried pulling some weight by explaining within the designated message time, that I write a column for a New York magazine. Then I decided to check out the labels on some of my clothing. Why? What does this have to do with pet food? Well, what I was thinking was, if I buy a dress that says “Made in USA” does that mean the material originated in the USA or somewhere else? Does that apply to food? If someone reading this knows the answer, please e-mail me and I will share it in another column. Now I’m at the point where I give up and will tell you what I know and give you the addresses of the most helpful websites I’ve been able to find. lists pet food manufacturers alphabetically and discloses information as to where it is manufactured as well as where the ingredients come from, if it contains grains or It takes a little effort to find good food for your sweetheart glutens, if there have been recalls and so on. I am during the last major pet food recall. They also have truly upset to find out that the dog food I’ve been using links to other websites like Itchmo and Pet Food and believed to be what I call 100% USA food, was in Tracker that give information on Pet Food RECALLS part, manufactured by Menu foods, a Canadian comor pet foods that have TESTED POSITIVE for CONTpany, and the major manufacturer of the tainted food

AMINANTS. Itchmo did have a notice of recall system that would automatically e-mail alerts to you if you registered with them. There are also some marketing strategies and labels on pet food bags that really make me uncomfortable. As I would probably need a lot more space on the page than reserved for this column, I’ll start the ball rolling and hope you will do a little investigating on your own. I’d love to know what you find out. These are some of my pet peeve words: natural, holistic and organic. Let’s start with Natural, Nature’s, Natura (not a typo) or any word that is altered to sound like Natural. What does that mean? Not artificially colored or treated. How about Holistic? How do you feel about that word? It means emphasizing on the whole of something rather than it’s parts, i.e. holistic medicine that concentrates on the overall health of a person rather than focusing on one particular health issue. So how does this relate to our pet’s food? Organic is last but not least as far as questionable application and how it is allowed to be used on a label. According to Oregon Tilth ( organic certification is subject to four levels of certification and the level would dictate how it can be put on the packaging of food. Confused? Actually that’s a good thing. It will make some of you read those pet food packages before you throw it in your shopping cart. Don’t let the marketing of these foods give you a false sense of security because of the friendly, caring, “we love your dog and cat phrases” on the bag. Questions? thoughts? email

Local Filmmakers on Tap at this Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Film Festival By Tiffany Razzano Films from across the country and around the world will be shown throughout the East End in about a week, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the Hamptons International Film Festival, which runs from Oct. 15-19, will ignore local filmmakers. In fact, the festival boasts a segment called View from Long Island, which is comprised of a series of short films called East End Shorts, along with several other films.

One of the shorts, Twin Lenses, is a documentary about twin, female photographers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Frances McLaughlin Gill and Kathryn Abbe, who now lives in Montauk â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who were pioneers in the field of fashion photography. Directed by Oscar-nominated director Nina Rosenblum, the 30-minute long film is told through the voices of the sisters, weaving in interviews with family members and showing photographs they took throughout their long and prosper-

ous careers, as well as family photos. Filmed in black and white, Peter Glanzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A Relationship in Four Days is very much influenced by French new wave cinema and Woody Allen films. Set against the backdrop of New York City, this film tells the tale of a short-lived relationship between Paul, a witty and, at times, pretentious, wealthy playboy and Sabine, a younger woman he meets on the subway. A Relationship in Four Days premiered domestically at the Sundance Film Festival and internationally at Cannes. Glanz is currently working on expanding the film into a full-length feature, The Longest Week. The Muffin Top is the senior thesis project of recent Ross School graduate and Guild Hall filmmaking contest winner Gloria Dios, who is currently in her freshman year at New York University, where she is studying film. Utilizing stop motion animation, in this seven-minute short the lives of a baker and a late-night radio DJ collide in their dreams. Second Guessing Grandma is a charming coming out story. Ed decides to tell his family that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gay â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including his 76-year-old, traditional, Jewish grandmother. Directed by Bob Giraldi, a member of the Art Directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hall of Fame, Ed decides to tell his grandmother heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gay despite pressure from his mother and boyfriend that he shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. He then spends the next week trying to educate her on his life, with surprising results. The final film in the East End Shorts series is an animated piece, It Was a Dark and Silly Night, based on a story for children by Neil Gaiman, a science fiction author best known for his work with The Sandman series. Directed by HIFF alumni StevenCharles Jaffe, and animated by a Sag Harbor native, Gahan Wilson, It Was a Dark and Silly Night is the tale of a group of children who throw a party in a graveyard, waking the dead, who wind up joining them in their festivities. Also part of the View from Long Island segment, Picasso and Braque Go to the Movies is a featurelength documentary by director Arne Glimcher, and also introduced and co-produced by Martin Scorcese. Featuring interviews with contemporary artists such as Chuck Close, Julian Schnabel and Robert Rauschenberg, the documentary discusses the influence of early film on Cubist painters, friends and rivals Pablo Picasso and George Braque. Finally, The Artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eye: Bruce Weber is part of a new annual program at HIFF, this year setting its focus on Montauk artist and filmmaker Bruce Weber. Rajendra Roy, HIFFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former artistic director, will have a conversation with Weber about his illustrious career, which includes innovative advertising campaigns for some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest clothing companies, music videos and 10 short and feature films, one of which, a documentary on Chet Baker, earned him a nomination for an Academy Award. Clips from some of his short films, his commercials and some of his music videos will also be shown. East End Shorts can be viewed on Oct. 18, at 3 p.m., in Southampton, and on Oct. 19, at 8 p.m. at the United Artists Cinema.

Movies that Feature Music in Leading Roles Movies about bands and musicians and musicals are a dime a dozen, but, in some movies, the role music plays is entirely different, taking on a life of its own, becoming a character in the film. One such film, The Guitar, will be featured in this year’s Hamptons International Film Festival. The Guitar is the story of Melody, (Saffron Burrows) who is diagnosed with a terminal illness. With nothing to lose when she’s told she only has two months to live, she abandons her old life, empties her bank account and racks up credit card debt to move into a spacious Village apartment. She also decides to pursue a lifelong dream of hers: to learn how to play the guitar. The result is a life-changing transformation, with the guitar and her lifelong desire to play music leading her on her spiritual and creative journey. Of course, between now and the film festival, you can always run to the video store if you’re interested in catching a film where music plays a integral role in the story and isn’t a biopic of a musician. You might want to check out The Red Violin, a powerful film that takes place in five countries, spanning three centuries, following the lives of all those who own a special red violin, which has a direct influence, for better or worse, on each of its owners’ lives. The Piano tells the tale of a mute Scottish woman, Ada, who expresses herself by playing the piano.

Finding herself in New Zealand due to an arranged marriage to a man she doesn’t love, when her husband sells her piano to a local, she aims to get it back and becomes entangled in a love affair. Throughout the movie, the piano itself plays a pivotal role in the plot, serving as an impetus for many key moments. There’s also Mr. Holland’s Opus, starring Richard Dreyfuss as composer Glenn Holland, who takes on a job as a high school music teacher to pay the bills. The movie spans the 30-year teaching career of Holland, set against the backdrop of some of America’s most important historical moments. Music

is a constant theme in the movie, as Holland learns how to connect with his students and love his job as a teacher, while still reaching for his dream of being a composer. High Fidelity, based on the novel by Nick Hornby and starring John Cusack as a record store owner, music snob extraordinaire and geeky audiophile, is a funny, and often selfdeprecating, look at the role contemporary music can play in a person’s life. As Cusack’s character explores his past relationships to see why his most current one is going wrong, he obsesses over music, and, naturally, the art of the mix tape makes an appearance or two. Jack Black also stars in this film as an employee at the record store and wannabe rock star. If you’re looking for something even more lighthearted, then check out The School of Rock, another Black film, where he yet again stars as a wannabe rock star, who, this time, discovers a love of teaching kids music after he fakes his way into a substitute teaching job to make some money. Sure, it’s mostly just a fun movie, but it also deals with musical discovery, as Black’s character sets out to turn his class into a rock band. You can catch The Guitar, which also features Janeane Garofalo, on Oct. 18 at 6:30 p.m. in Southampton as part of the Hamptons International Film Festival.

theater review/gordin & christiano

Review: ....The Seagull does little to serve the play’s volatile rhythms. His infatuation with the young actress Nina, played by the luminous Carey Mulligan, ultimately destroys her and Konstantin, Arkadina’s unstable son, is nicely played by MacKenzie Crook. Trigorin is the catalyst for the action, provoking Konstantin’s jealousy and Arkadina’s insecurities, while captivating Nina. Without a charismatic Trigorin, you wonder what all the fuss is about and the play’s impact is diluted. Rickson’s staging is rather obvious, with a heavy-handed darkness that needs to be played against to accentuate the story’s tragedy. Still, in her Broadway debut Kristin Scott Thomas, an Oscar nominee for The English Patient, shines as the aging diva, turning in a colorful flamboyant portrayal that is the commanding centerpiece of the evening. If we feel little for her, it apparJoan Marcus

Ian Rickson’s wonderful production of Anton Chekhov’s classic The Seagull, starring a marvelous Kristin Scott Thomas as the tempestuous Russian actress Arkadina, is never less than entertaining and often much more. Working with a new modern translation by Christopher Hampton, Rickson’s Seagull originally debuted at the Royal Court Theatre in London, where it was a heralded success. Arriving on Broadway with only a couple of cast changes, the latest revival is the third to be seen in the New York City area in just over a year, a testament to the enduring appeal of Chekhov’s masterpiece. Luring established well-known actors like Dianne Wiest and Alan Cummings, who starred in one, and Sir Ian Mckellen, who was featured in another, the compelling tale of loss and desire concerns the entanglements of a group of actors and writers gathered at Arkadina’s Russian estate. If none of the recent productions have been definitive – no one seems to get it just right – Rickson’s graceful staging featuring the elegant Thomas in a role that suits her perfectly is far and away the best of the three. Taking a naturalistic approach to Hampton’s contemporary retooling, Rickson’s Seagull is emotionally lush, with uniformly good work from the entire ensemble. There is, however, one glaring exception. Peter Sarsgaard, new to the company, plays the writer Trigorin, Arkadina’s younger lover, as if in a vacuum. His melancholy even-handed approach

ently doesn’t matter, and she looks stunning in the period gowns by Hildegard Bechtler, who did the sets as well, that accentuate her youthful figure. Zoe Kazan, another addition to the cast, delivers a no-holds-barred thrilling portrait of the desperate Masha, whose unrequited love of Konstantin is her undoing. Rickson’s somewhat overwrought approach to The Seagull is always engaging and the gifted actors serve him well. But the irony, so essential to the drama, is sorely missing. The Seagull opened on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theatre, 219 West 48th Street, on October 2, 2008 for a 14-week limited engagement through December 21.

HIFF Kicks Off with a “Flash” at MoMA Although the 16th Annual Hamptons International Film Festival doesn’t really get started until October 15, Dan’s was on hand to take in a sneak preview of what is to come, with a screening of the highly anticipated Flash of Genius, starring past Oscar-nom Greg Kinnear. But unlike the festivities that will leave the East End awash in eager cinema lovers and celebs looking to push their latest piece, this first round of the HIFF took place in Manhattan at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) on October. At a special, guest-list only affair, journalists and film industry people arrived at the 54th St. MoMA entrance greeted by none-other than Mr. Kinnear himself! He wasn’t taking too many questions – although he did stop for a FOX camera crew at the red-carpeted section roped off for the actors, director and producer – but he was very cordial, shaking hands, patting shoulders and wielding his disarming grin with aplomb. Director Marc Abraham and HIFF boss David Nugent were also in the house to say hello, with a capacity crowd in place, sipping wine and buzzing about the film. Many wondered why the screening was scheduled for 6:30 p.m. – very early for an NYC affair – but Mr. Nugent soon explained the event was set for dinnertime “so we don’t miss the debate tonight,” as Sarah Palin and Joe Biden were set to go at 9 p.m. And as planned, the deadline was easily met, as Flash of Genius is a breezy movie that made for a quick, solid opening to this year’s edition of the Hamptons film affair. The festival awards many prizes to films deemed relevant to its creative and independent spirit, and Flash is the current recipient of the program’s Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Film Prize in Science and Technology – in place for movies that examine science and technology themes and portray scientists and engineers with integrity and conviction. No question the $25,000 prize was earned here, as this movie takes a passionate look at a potentially over-passionate inventor. Based on the true story presented in an article written by scribe for the New Yorker, this is the tale of Dr. Robert Kearns, an engineer and professor who taught

and lived in the suburbs of Detroit. Although the film doesn’t exactly give the time it’s set in, the rotary phones and radio clips of a successful Baltimore Orioles baseball squad indicates the ‘70s. With his doting and devoted wife (played by professional beleaguered-wife/beauty Lauren Graham) and six kids, he seems content living in this town during an era still dominated by people working in the automotive field. And while others around him are making a good living selling their souls to the industry – like his old pal Gil Privick (Dermot Mulroney) – playing golf and having swell dinner parties in their big houses, Dr. Kearns just wants to hang around with his family and explore his dream. A dream many might question, but Robert has a vision that owns his thoughts: intermittent windshield wipers. Hardly a sexy dream, no one seems interested in hearing about such a creation – until he actually invents the thing. Calling it a “blinking-eye” wiper system, soon the doctor and his buddy Gil are working out ways to cash in. The problem is, while Kearns is a genius, a financial wizard he is not. Before long, he’s voluntarily given up the rights to his patents to a company interested in marketing the wipers, who then makes a deal with the automotive colossus Ford company, all the while telling the professor he could stay in charge of the manufacturing. But before too long, the obvious takes place: Ford tells Dr. Kearns his help is no longer needed, they’re no longer interested in his invention and – oh yeah – now every Ford car that passes down the street has window wipers that can pause to match the intensity of the rain. Kearns invention has been wrenched away and his involvement is completely denied, Upon discovery of this, Kearns loses it. His immediate reaction is to take on Ford in court – a seemingly impossible plan, considering the company’s endless resources and unfathomable power. Nonetheless, he pursues personal justice, and the ensuing struggle consumes his mind, his career, his family and his world. For his efforts, Kinnear deserves an A+, as he seems to have buried his smarmier side, which is so often present, fully dressing himself in the guise of an aloof

super-brain who was probably never all that stable to begin with. Before the meat of the movie unfolds, he’s a mild-mannered, grinning fellow, with a one-track mind that suggests book-smart, not street-smart. Kinnear delivers this subdued gentleman well, and also efficiently switches gears when it’s time to become the crazed, burned-out recluse who never thinks twice in sacrificing his entire being to make Ford admit their alleged crime. In addition, the whole cast is great, especially Graham, who loves her husband completely, but desperately fears watching her husband implode. There are flaws in this film, but they are minor. The most glaring is the soundtrack, as often scenes begin and end with gospel-tinged, light-hearted electric organ ditties. The whimsical tempo seems to imply comedy, and although there are some light-hearted moments (and one flat-out hysterical court-room scene that will certainly be a clip used for Oscar consideration), this is a sad and heartbreaking story, so perhaps a gloomy musical selection would have been more appropriate. It’s also a speedy number, and while its quick edits keep this movie under 115 minutes, one might wish to have seen the character-entrenched Kinnear receive more time to ply his dramatic wares. Otherwise, it’s an emotional tale that allows you to see one man’s war for respect. In this day and age, even the people who end up most sympathetic to his plight might wonder why integrity was so important to him. Is he crazy? Is moral come-uppance more valuable than family and financial gain? Perhaps the point of this movie is praising the martyr-like efforts of Dr. Kearns. Because while we know that a man fighting for what’s right is ethically heroic, when you hear about the money Kearns both refused and risked losing to win his case, you seriously wonder if you could do the same. And as he gambled with his sanity, your humble critic admits feeling a bit guilty when occasionally rooting for him to save himself and sell out.

It is the moment to enjoy the last of early fall tomatoes whose characteristic sweet, juicy flavors will fade into memory in just a couple of weeks until next summer comes around again. And how do I like my late season tomatoes? I gave caprese, the classic sliced tomato and mozzarella favorite, a slight twist by using basil puree, taking it to another level to make a deliciously simple salad for lunch or dinner. I also seized the moment when I collected basil leaves from my garden before the freeze to make the puree with extravirgin olive oil. I will also ask farmers for tomato seconds which often have no more than a slight blemish or are a bit over ripe. I’ll take them home to blanch in hot water so they peel easily and store the tomatoes in the fridge for several days. For a different and delectable pasta course, chop the tomatoes coarsely and cook with sauteed leeks, adding fresh mozzarella and mint. I promise you raves! Pasquale Langella, mozzarella cheese maker extraordinaire, who holds court every Saturday and Sunday making fresh mozzarella from start to finish, at Tutto Italiano, a Citarella store in East Hampton, provides us with the milky miracle of soft, creamy freshly made mozzarella. Working with whole milk, his hands poetically manipulate the 20-25 pounds of curd for each batch in several additions of hot, 140 degree, water until the curds melt into yards of supple sheets stretched over a stainless steel paddle.

For the basil puree 2 cups fresh basil leaves 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 3/4 teaspoon coarse (kosher) salt For the salad 2 large ripe red local tomatoes 2 large ripe yellow local tomatoes 1 pound fresh mozzarella Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 2-3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Extra basil leaves for garnish, optional

Working in gradually cooler waters the meltingly smooth texture of the curds indicate when Pasquale is ready to mold the curd into the familiar mozzarella shape. It is a truly fascinating procedure to watch. Seize the moment to enjoy chunks of Pasquale’s heavenly mozzarella straight up with just a drizzle of fine extra-virgin olive oil and freshly ground pepper or team with tomatoes to quell your lust. At least until next summer.

TOMATO AND MOZZARELLA WITH BASIL PUREE Save the last of your garden fresh basil for this popular salad classic. Serves 6

1. Place basil puree ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until a soft pesto like consistency. Transfer to a suitable container to refrigerate as necessary. Puree can be prepared up to several days ahead or freeze for up to one month. 2. When ready to serve, rinse and dry tomatoes (mine still had some dirt on them from the farm) and cut into 1/4-inch slices with a serrated knife. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt. Slice mozzarella into as thin as possible slices and season with several grinds of fresh pepper. You should have enough mozzarella slices to alternate between the red and yellow tomato slices. Arrange the slices on serving plates and season each serving with drops of balsamic and a drizzle of olive oil. If basil puree is refrigerated or frozen be sure to bring it to room temperature. With a teaspoon scatter the puree across the center of the tomatoes and mozzarella. Garnish plates with additional basil leaves if desired. LINGUINI WITH LEEK, TOMATO AND MOZZARELLA Local farm ingredients marry with fresh mozzarella to team with pasta. Serves 4-6 2 large leek well washed and sliced thin 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil plus extra for drizzling 2 tomatoes, blanched, peeled and coarsely chopped Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper 1 pound linguini 2-3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint 3/4 cup grated or chopped mozzarella

1. Remove any bruised outer layers of leek and, at an angle, cut away the dark green to expose light green to white layers underneath. Cut lengthwise from the root ends to halve or quarter each leek, rinse under running water then soak in cold water about 15 minutes. Dry leeks with paper towel and slice thin.


2. Heat oil in a skillet and put in the sliced leek. Saute, stirring occasionally, for 6-8 minutes until tender. Add tomatoes and stir to mix. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cook for 3-4 minutes to blend flavors. Keep warm.

3. Meanwhile bring a large pot of water to the boil and add 2-3 teaspoons coarse salt. Put in the pasta, bring back to the boil, and cook until al dente, about 9-11 minutes; taste for doneness. Add 1/4 cup pasta water to the sauce in the skillet with the leek and tomato. Drain pasta and return to the pot it cooked in. Pour in the leek and tomatoes. Add mint and mozzarella and toss to mix. Taste for salt and pepper then transfer to warm plates and top with a tiny drizzle of olive oil over each serving.

DAN'S PAPERS, October 10, 2008 Page 64

Letters COMPARING THE CAMPAIGNS Dear Dan, Imagine you’d just received documents in the mail that referred to your financial situation, scary talk that your retirement was in danger, savings and investments not as robust as you’d been led to believe and that, at some point, your paycheck will be affected too. You call to get help; two teams appear offering to help you figure this stuff out. One-team talks a bit about the numbers, it mostly goes over your head, so they back up, try to explain it again. Some of what they say makes sense, some of it sounds a little halfbaked, but at least you get the notion that these guys have little experience with this kind of trouble. Now, the other team? The other teams gets all chummy and points out they drink the same beer as you, that they talk the way you talk, and that they are “just folks” from down the street. Same as you, no pretenses, no glib intellectualism, they’re just regular guys here to help. When pressed for specifics, they refuse to talk numbers, and mutter some vague comment about how the other team has connections with terrorists. You know very well what you’d do. You’d toss the second team out of your house. You’d recognize that their attempt at folksy friendliness shows that they have no idea what they’re doing. Rodney Stells Via e-mail Who the hell does know what they are talking about. – DR NO CONFIDENCE Letter to the Editor: In reference to the article by T.J. Clemente, “How to Impeach a Supervisor (Clue: You Can’t)”, Dan’s Papers, 10/3/08, I recall speaking with Mr. Clemente twice. I do not recall what he looks like. I am sure I apologized when I approached him the second time for a signature. I know I explained to him that it was hard to remember exactly with whom I had already spoken since I spoke to hundreds of people outside of the East Hampton post office this summer while collecting signatures on a petition calling for the resignation of Supervisor

e-mail Dan at

McGintee. To the best of my recollection Mr. Clemente accepted my apology at the time. In fact, I believe we engaged in several extended conversations. This was not an unusual event. When I approached someone for a second time and I apologized, there was no one, who did not graciously accept my apology. Now I read that apparently this senior citizen, grandmother (me) somehow so intimidated Mr. Clemente that he felt it necessary to begin “using the rear entrance to the Post Office.” Sorry, Mr. Clemente, I didn’t mean to scare you. Question: Why is it that when Mr. Clemente writes about the McGintee fiasco the only person he seems to interview is the Supervisor’s personal assistant, Lynn Ryan? Yes, Ms. Ryan, the Supervisor should “consider the source” of the signatures on the petition — over 1,200 East Hampton voters and taxpayers who have wholeheartedly given the Supervisor a vote of “no confidence.” Beverly Bond East Hampton Via e-mail Lynn Ryan, assistant to Mr. McGintee is as far as he gets. – DR THE THIN WHITE LINE Letter to the Editor, I just reread Dan Rattiner’s article in the September 26th edition, and once again, I was disturbed by the mistakes and somewhat snide innuendos he made. Firstly, the signs were not divided in their messages; all the signs read “STOP OVERDEVELOPEMENT PRESERVE OUR ENVIRONMENT PROTECT ENDANGERED SPECIES” We were very careful to ask homeowners if we could put the signs up on their property for two weeks only, and did not place any in front of a “big yellow sign that read NO RIGHT TURN.” For the readers’ information, we asked the highway department if they had removed the signs. The answer was an emphatic no. Next, we got our housing development in 1985,

when there was no threat of overdevelopment. The land was wooded, so “open vistas” were not in peril. Houses were of modest size and lots were approximately one acre. Strict adherence to environmental demands, such as the amount of natural area that had to be preserved, meant that still today there are deer, rabbits, foxes and pheasants that reside here. Lastly, it should be a question of “enough is enough”…… the “barn door should be closed,” or we’ll end up with a community that resembles Florida (as one of our town council members said recently, when he wondered what was the matter with that). Does Mr. Rattiner believe that since we live in a development, we have no right to speak out against what is happening in the Hamptons (especially Bridgehampton)? Or is it simply that Mr. Rattiner has his, so the rest of us don’t count? Whatever his reason, Mr. Rattiner, and others like him, used to be concerned about preservation. Well, preservation doesn’t just apply to huge tracts of land that you can see in front of you and that increase the value of your own personal property. It involves people and animals and water aquifers and quality of life. We don’t want to stop development. We would just like to see intelligent development: where aquifers aren’t threatened; where excessive demands for more energy aren’t made because of the increase in numbers and size of the houses that are built; where environments and the endangered species that inhabit the land are protected; and where existing families aren’t threatened by a complete lack of regard for their needs and their community. No, Mr. Rattiner, it is time to close the barn door, while we still have something to protect. Leslie Kapon Hampton Farms Bridgehampton, NY Via e-mail: I hiked through those woods when “Hampton Farms” was a gleam in a developer eye. Of course we should slow development. – DR

Police Blotter Calling For Mom The mother of a student in Westhampton called police after she found out that her son’s cell phone had been stolen out of his locker. Police have opened up an investigation. When they called the phone, nobody answered. They are continuing the investigation. Art Dude A guy who claims to be an artist thought it would be appropriate to open up shop by sitting down on the lawn of an estate and begin painting the house. The owners of the house, about to call the police, went out and approached the man. After a brief negotiation, they agreed on a price for the painting. The deal? The owner of the home agreed not to have the guy arrested if he gave him the painting without charge. Losing Weight, Not So Much A woman in Bridgehampton was caught red handed with drugs. She tried to get out of it by saying she was using the drugs to lose weight. She was still arrested.

Not A Good Idea A man was stumbling drunk outside of a beverage store in Southampton. The store’s owner refused to sell him any alcohol and the man became irate and walked around outside the store. The owner of the store called police who found the man outside of the store unable to speak a cohesive sentence. They checked the man’s ID and found that he had several unpaid tickets. He was arraigned at police headquarters. Stealing Food A man in Hampton Bays was arrested after he was caught stealing food out of a local grocery store. The man was stealing basic food items from the store such as pasta and rice. The stores security personnel caught the man and then called police. The man was taken to police headquarters where he was arrested and fed something. On The Wrong Side Of The Road A man was seen driving on the wrong side of the road for miles along Montauk Highway. Several driv-

ers reported the incident that the man was deliberately driving on the wrong side of the road into oncoming traffic, then when another driver came down the road head on, the man would swerve back into the correct lane. He was pulled over and arrested after it was clear to police the man thought that driving like that was entertaining. Argument A man and a woman got into an argument on the North Fork. The woman became so angry that she threw a dog bone at the man, hitting him in the head. When interviewed, the woman called the man, “A complete bonehead.” Deli Robber Arrested A man in Bridgehampton was arrested after a video surveillance camera caught him breaking into the deli and stealing cash. The cashiers recognized the man and told police his place of residence where he was promptly arrested. You can head down to the deli now and order the cheese burglar sandwich.
