My Montauk Highway If They Decided to Sell it to Me, Here’s How I’d Make it Better By Dan Rattiner Wanna buy the Triborough Bridge? I’m serious. The State and City of New York have begun talking about a new and creative way to deal with the financial crisis: by selling a part interest in some of the city bridges to private investors. The money would be used for maintenance and repairs, which would relieve that burden in the budget. In exchange for this, the new private owners would be promised a large share of future revenue from bridge tolls. Under consideration are the Kosciuszko Bridge and the RFK Bridge (the Triborough), but not the Brooklyn, because there are no tolls to be divvied up since none are charged—at least not yet. Great Britain is considering doing the same thing with the Channel Tunnel. I am not making this up. They own the tunnel jointly with the French, but the English are not faring as well as the French in coming out of this recession, and so they, too, want to raise money—by selling their entire stake in the tunnel. The French and say, Rupert Murdoch, would own the Chunnel. There are other ways to raise money for government-owned facilities. There is a plan afoot in San Francisco to sell naming rights to different stops on the BART subway system. Market Street might be Google Market Street, for example.
So far, there has been no talk of selling any of the government-owned assets in the Hamptons, but if the State of New York ever asks, I would be very interested in buying the Montauk Highway. I know a great deal about the Montauk Highway. I’ve written about it for the paper for the last 49 years. My home is in East Hampton and my office is in Bridgehampton, so I go up and back at least once, and sometimes twice, a day. All together, my tires have pounded the pavement one way or the other around 75,000
stand of tall trees on both sides of the road for its whole length. Fifty years ago, I might have said elms, but elms get Dutch elm disease. Instead, I would plant giant plane trees, which I have seen in the South of France. These trees would arch over the road just as the great elms once did. They would keep the road leafy and cool. I’d lower the speed limit of the entire length of the highway to 35 miles an hour. I’d want everyone to enjoy the beautiful new highway. I’d order that no left turns be made either onto or off the highway. And I’d have the highway be one-way east on Friday nights and oneway west on Sunday nights. I’d also have it one-way east every weekday morning from seven to nine, and one-way west every weekday evening from four to six. This would reduce head-on collisions dramatically during those times. And it would also lessen traffic, which would give the road a rest. People could take back roads or the Jitney or something. I’d have frequent festivals on the highway every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. I’d have Puerto Rican festivals, Native American festivals, Cuban festivals, Mexican festivals, Italian festivals, French festivals and gay rights festivals. I would have flower-festooned traffic circles
I’d have frequent festivals on the highway, and flower-festooned traffic circles at every intersection. times. If you figure 10 miles per trip, that’s 750,000 miles. I have been to the moon and back without ever having left Montauk Highway. Who would be more qualified to own the Montauk Highway than me? If I owned the Montauk Highway, there is a lot I would do. For one thing, I would order all the telephone poles taken down and all the utility wires put underground. I would put a

Meredith Viera shot “Meredith’s Harvest Day” in the Hamptons for the Today show last week. As part of the segment, orchestrated by NBC producer and East Hampton resident Angela LaGreca, Viera stomped grapes at Wolffer Estate Vineyards, picked apples at the Milk Pail and toured a corn maze at Fairview Farms, where she also ran into co-host—and scarecrow—Matt Lauer. * * * Vice President Joe Biden reportedly visited the Hamptons over Columbus Day weekend, flying into Westhampton’s Gabreski airport on Air Force Two Saturday night, and strolling Jobs Lane on Sunday. * * * Originally listed with the Corcoran Group for $8.4 million, Bernie Madoff’s Montauk home sold for $9.4 million. Proceeds will go to a victims fund. * * * Sag Harbor’s Christie Brinkley and ex-husband Peter Cook returned to court recently to readdress visitation rights. Cook accused Brinkley of “custodial interference” last December after an incident involving son Jack, a passport and a missed school trip to Egypt. * * * Hamptons resident Alexandra Wolfe, daughter of author Tom Wolfe, is reportedly writing about children who follow in their parents’ footsteps down Wall Street for Vanity Fair magazine. * * * Former President Bill Clinton presented East Hampton’s Steven Spielberg with the Liberty Medal at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. The annual award is given to those whose actions represent the founding principles of the United States. * * * Congratulations, Mickey Paraskevas! Artwork by the famed Dan’s Papers illustrator was chosen by the Washington International Horse Show as the poster for its 51st annual show. “The artwork is wonderful, the image of Washington at night is truly spectacular and Mickey captured all this in a fun and whimsical way,” said Juliet Reid, President, WIHS. The poster is available at www.wihs.org and at the souvenir stand at the show. * * * On Saturday, October 24, at 8 p.m., East End musicians Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks will celebrate 20 years of “rockin’the Hamptons” at Guild Hall’s John Drew Theater in East Hampton. * * * Hildreth’s is having an ugly sofa contest.

Homecoming A University Speech & Dan’s Papers’ Underlying Philosophy By Dan Rattiner I was a featured speaker for homecoming weekend at my alma mater, the University of Rochester, two weeks ago. It was a great honor for me. I spent four wonderful years there before heading off to graduate school at Harvard. The audience was particularly interested to hear about the Hamptons and how it had changed, and about Dan’s Papers, which I founded during the summer between my junior and senior years at Rochester. They thought it unusual that somebody would start such a business while still in college—and then stick with it for the next 50 years.
The university flew my wife and me to Rochester, put us up in a fine hotel and, after the speech, treated us to dinner at a fine restaurant. We flew back to New York the next day. I talked about my reasons for starting the paper. Dr. Richard Gollin, my student advisor and English professor, had introduced me to the works of numerous opinionated writers who published their own thoughts in private newspaper form. Among them were Joseph Addison and Richard Steele. Also, Harry Golden, who wrote The Carolina Israelite from his home in Charlotte, North Carolina for many years. At the end of his career as a publisher,
Golden wrote a book about his career called Only in America, which became a bestseller. Mark Twain was also a famous newspaper editor for a time. He wrote many opinion pieces for his newspaper, a tabloid published in Virginia City, Nevada during the Silver Rush. I also talked about my theory of newspapers, which I long ago named “The Plucked Chicken School of Journalism.” Back in the early 1980s, when developers began to drive Hamptons real estate prices through the roof, farmland became far more valuable as building sites than farms. Taxes rose accordingly, and in one tumultuous meet(continued on page 18)
WILL SANE LAW ENFORCEMENT COME TO QUOGUE? By Dan Rattiner For the last five years, the Village of Quogue has stood out from all other communities in the Hamptons because of one thing: its law enforcement is run with an iron hand. An infraction of any kind on the streets of this quiet community is treated by the police as tantamount to burglary or murder. If you drive 26 miles an hour on the 25-mile-an-hour streets, you will be—no doubt about it—pulled over and given a summons. Local citizenry have been stopped and questioned just for being out at dusk. Two years ago, the daughter of a longtime
resident of that town worked for Dan’s Papers. When driving to and from work, she was constantly followed and occasionally pulled over— not because she had done anything wrong, but just to be questioned. She told me it upset her so much she might have to quit her job. As she was a college student, I told her it would be over soon. In the event, she stayed. She loved her job, she said. Around the same time, police burst into the home of another longtime Quogue resident and arrested her in her kitchen because her car had hit a tree on the street just outside. She’d actually gone inside to call the police. They
arrested her for appearing woozy. Maybe she had been drinking and driving. She sued and the village settled. When I inquired about this, I learned that the police chief supports this form of law enforcement. It’s the mayor’s policy, he told me. The mayor and village justice are behind this. The village justice is the mayor’s wife. You don’t mess with Quogue. I gave a talk at the Quogue Library last summer. I drove 20 miles an hour on Quogue Street. No sense ruining my day. I can tell you as a longtime editor of this (continued on next page)

at every big intersection. And every Saturday and Sunday, Swan Lake and other ballets would be performed by beautiful young abllerinas in diaphanous gowns from around the world. At the Lobster Inn at the western end of Montauk Highway, I’d install the biggest car wash in the world. All motorists about to get on the Montauk Highway would have to go through it. There would be no dirty cars on my Montauk Highway. At tight spots, where a lot of traffic comes through a narrow area, I would double-deck the Montauk Highway—not up, but down. At each end, passing lanes would go down a hill to big tunnels going under the narrowed area. There would be one at the intersection of
County Road 39 and Montauk Highway in Southampton (the tunnel would curve), another under Water Mill where the traffic ties up at the light, another under the monument in Bridgehampton, another at the famous Perelman Pond Pinch, where the road comes through south of the airport, and another under all of Main Street in East Hampton. There would be no tickets given out for speeding or other poor driving on my Montauk Highway. Instead, after a full-scale monitoring by surveillance cameras, certificates of accomplishment would be handed out to those who went the whole distance without doing anything wrong. Finally, no signage would be allowed anywhere except for uplifting and encouraging
signage telling motorists, “Yes, you can do it,” “Keep up the good work” and so forth and so on. All signage would have to be approved by the Dan-Montauk Highway Signage Panel, which I would appoint. Driving down Montauk Highway would be a very different experience if I owned it. I think it would be much improved. What do you think?

newspaper that village mayors are given wide berth in how they run their communities in the state of New York. Town supervisors, who represent far more people, are held to strict standards. But mayors, short of taking all the taxpayers’ money out of the village safe and walking down the street with it in a laundry basket, can do as they please. They are free to appoint relatives, harass the neighbors of relatives—which was done in Southampton Village not long ago—and otherwise run their little fiefdoms without interference from above. All that said, it is interesting to note that the current mayor of Quogue, George Motz, was photographed last week leaving the courthouse in Central Islip with his wife, Village Justice Kittric Motz, the both of them looking very unhappy after he had pled guilty to fraud. He has made no plea bargain. And it is okay with him that in pleading guilty, he lost his right to appeal. He faces a conviction that could bring 25 years in prison. Experts say he will probably serve half that. On the surface, the fraud has nothing to do with his vacation home or residency in Quogue. Motz makes his money on Wall Street by buying and selling stocks for his clients. He heads up the firm of Melhado, Flynn & Associates and, apparently, between November 2000 and June 2005, he stole money from his clients by, for example, buying 100 stocks in the morning but listing the buyer as “to be assigned before the end of the day,” then waiting, seeing which stocks performed the best and writing in his name on those that did. The other, not-so-good transactions, he assigned to his clients. There’s a name for this in the world of brokerage houses. It is called “cherry picking,” because it is so easy to do. Just delay filling in the name of the buyer. A broker can do that. Using this method, a person can be a whiz at picking stocks that go up. According to the investigation, during one period Motz bought 204 stocks in the “morning,” and by the end of the day 202 of them went up. The other two were apparently either clerical errors or for window dressing. When this sham was finally exposed, Motz was indicted not only for defrauding his clients out of $1.4 million—enough to buy an estate in Quogue—but also for putting down the wrong times of day to accommodate the cherry picking, which is considered forging public documents. Motz, when first charged, was outraged. “We have the facts on our side. If it goes to trial, we (continued on page 26)

ing at Southampton Town Hall, I was told that a particular farmer’s wife, objecting angrily to the suddenly astronomic real estate taxes she and her husband could not afford, threw a plucked chicken at the town supervisor. I wrote about this for the next issue. I thought it was neat. But after the paper came out, one of our writers said she had been at that meeting, and that the farmer’s wife had not thrown a plucked chicken—she had handed the town supervisor a stuffed duck on a stand and told him to keep it on his desk to remind him of what the Hamptons was all about. The writer said I should write a correction. I said I would not. The plucked chicken was a better story, and that was that. Thus was a new philosophy of journalism brought to life. Newspapers are not fact on the front page and opinion on the editorial page. All articles, even the “fact” articles, are opinion because everybody has an axe to grind. I’ve lived my whole career following the Plucked Chicken School of Journalism. My readers know that in everything I write, the facts might not be quite right, but it’s the way I see things. It’s personal journalism, and if you ask me, we don’t have enough of that in America. I also talked during my speech about something remarkable that had happened at the University of Rochester in my senior year, just after I’d started Dan’s Papers back home. I had gone back to take the reins of UGH, the school humor magazine, only to find that the three-times-a-week newspaper of record for the
college was running a humor column of its own—and demanding that UGH be shut down for being a filthy, disgusting and irreverent rag that was a discredit to the school. I was stunned. And when we published our first issue of the year, they said it was worse than ever. The finance board would meet in a few weeks. It was suggested that the finance board vote not to fund future UGHs. Funding for humor should go to the newspaper. I soon found out that the motives of the newspaper were quite different from the moral stance they were taking. They had three rooms on the second floor of the student union, and were bursting at the seams. Adjacent to these rooms was a former janitor’s closet that had become UGH’s office. The issue was really our office. They wanted it for a dark room. I saw no alternative but to strike back. We secretly hooked up with the newspaper’s printer in downtown Rochester and, one night, put together a rogue issue of the newspaper. At six the next morning, when the printer brought to campus the REAL issue, we were waiting with our rogue issue. The printer left the usual hundreds of bundles in different bins, and after the delivery people drove away, we replaced theirs with ours. THAT was what everybody would read that morning. Our fake issue had many stories in it that were not true, but could be mistaken for true. We said we’d changed our minds about UGH. It should stay. One editorial, written by a “junior staffer,” said that the regular editor in chief of the paper had been stealing money from the
newspaper in vast quantities and that “since she is over 18, she will be punished for her crimes and probably have to go to jail.” The editorial ended by saying the full details of her crimes would be revealed in the next issue. Our main front-page story was that the school was immediately going on a tri-semester system. This was announced by the president of the university himself, and we had a picture of him to prove it. With the tri-semester system, the long three-month break in the summertime, when the students’ brains were not in use, would be reduced to just the month of August. The school went nuts. People got into fistfights. Women screamed. The clerks and secretaries in the administration building went on strike and went home. Chairs were thrown in the faculty lounge. The entire telephone system in the city of Rochester went down for four hours. Terrified, we fled campus. We went to a pizzeria in a shabby section of town a few miles away and spent the next four hours drinking beer, listening to the jukebox, keeping our heads down and making sculptures by melting plastic spoons, knives and forks together with matches. I got in a lot of trouble. I was tried before the student judicial board, which, quite by coincidence, had been established at the university just a few months before. I was their first customer I was convicted of lying to the finance board (continued on page 28)

Trial Looms Regarding Death by Taser in Southampton in 2006 By Dan Rattiner Sometime next month, a matter will come to trial at the U. S. District Court in Islip regarding the multi-million-dollar claims made by the family of David Glowczenski of Southampton, who died after being shocked with a Taser nine times in that village five years ago. Glowczenski’s parents called police on February 4, 2004 to say that their son David, age 35, was walking the streets yelling and screaming at people. Glowczenski was well known in town. He suffered from schizophrenia, and even on his meds sometimes acted out like this. In the old days, police would have arrived with a grappling net and thrown it over him. Nowadays, we have something cleaner and neater. It is the Taser, patented and built by Taser International in Scottsdale, Arizona, that can fire a dart into a person from 20 feet away. Attached to the dart is a wire that can hit you with a brief shock of 20,000 volts. It will knock you to the floor. However, sometimes Tasers are
misused. Up close and personal, they can be placed against the body and fired as a stun gun without the dart. When this happens, the result is the same, but under certain circumstances, if the stun is directly on the chest over the heart, a person can be killed. This is what may have happened that day. Glowczenski struggled with officers; the report said later that several of them were “pushed” and they responded by firing Taser darts at Glowczenski and knocking him down. Some witnesses say police stunned him even after they handcuffed him, while he was on the ground. The police report went lightly on the tasing. It said Glowczenski was tased just three times. No mention was made of stunning. And the coroner’s report said he died from “acute exhaustive mania due to schizophrenia.” The family was not satisfied, however. A second autopsy was performed. It showed that Glowczenski had nine bruises on his body that had been caused by electric shocks, which only occur when the Taser is used in stun-gun mode.
Glowczenski also had crushed testicles and several broken ribs. Sometime later, a Southampton police officer who was not on the scene, Ed Broich, told this reporter that the method of subduing was indeed by stun and not by the Taser setting with which they were trained (officers are tased in training to show them how it feels), and that the officers were instructed to do this by higher-ups on the scene without calling headquarters, as is usually required. The lawsuit seeks $75 million from Southampton Village and co-defendents Suffolk County and the Suffolk County Police. Also being sued, for $55 million, is Taser International, the manufacturer of the weapon, which last year posted sales nationally of $95 million and which proudly has just announced a new contract to provide their product to airport security officers around the country. It has taken five years to get this matter to trial. The wheels turn slowly. In the interval, the (continued on page 26)
ANOTHER SIDE OF THE JAMES JONES FAMILY SAGA By T.J. Clemente It’s not everyday that you read a gripping, true story and then have the opportunity to call the author to discuss it. But in the process of reading and reviewing Come, My Darling, Come, A Memoir (published by Amereon House) by Michael Mosolino, nephew of From Here to Eternity author James Jones, that’s exactly what happened. Mosolino, who owns and operates The Deli Counter Fine Foods and catering business in Southampton and is a well-known chef starring in his own television series, “A Culinary Experience,” takes one completely by surprise
with this memoir. It all starts in a Pennsylvania town near Three Mile Island, where Mosolino grew up with his sister and three brothers. His mother was an alcoholic and his father a philandering salesman who came home one day with the woman who would be his new wife, and gave the kids 15 minutes to pack up and go with him. Mosolino’s sister stayed with the mother; Michael and his brothers moved to Florida with the father and stepmother. Soon, the brothers left that home; Michael stayed. Things went further south for Mosilino’s father, who became the captain of a charter boat, where Michael lived for a time before
deciding to go it on his own. He was 11 years old. What follows is the story of a homeless boy’s efforts for the next five years to survive on his own. The book courageously addresses spousal abuse, alcohol abuse, abandonment and sexual abuse. With a story straight out of Dickens, Come, My Darling, Come is a quilted epic of guilt, love, reconnection and survival that connects the importance of simple kindness of strangers: The diner waitress and the WinnDixie manager who gave a young boy a job and a chance. The influence of a pretty female co(continued on next page)

Whatâ€™s a Little Zoning Variance Between Neighbors? UNIONTOWN, PA. â€“ A Pennsylvania Civil War buff faces a felony charge for accidentally firing a two-pound cannonball through the wall of his neighborâ€™s home... The cannonball, about two inches in diameter, ricocheted and hit the neighborâ€™s home about 400 yards away, smashing through a window and a wall before landing in a closet. Police say nobody was hurt. â€œHi, Mrs. Lowry? Itâ€™s Sharon the babysitter. Um, thereâ€™s a problem. You know your neighbor, Mr. Maser, the man who you were saying just moved to the Island from Pennsylvania? Well, heâ€™s a Civil War buff and he likes to do that reenactment stuff... the police just told me when they got here... no, theyâ€™re busy with him right now, but I can tell you what happened. Okay, we were all watching Wall-E on the kidsâ€™ TV when, BOOM! There was this huge explosion. I jumped up and there was this big hole in the kitchen over the counter ...It was a cannonball, Mrs. Lowry... no, a real cannonball. Please donâ€™t scream, Mrs. Lowry. I heard the man tell the police he makes them himself. Hello? Mrs. Lowry? Yes, the man next door, he shot off a cannon... yes, Iâ€™m sure a cannon is against some Island ordinance, but I donâ€™t know about that stuff. Anyway, it came through the wall in the kitchen... no, none of the appliances got shot... but it kept going through the wall on the opposite side and into yours and Mrs. Lowryâ€™s (continued on page 25)

worker who introduced a new view of spirituality. Through it all, Mosolino communicates the importance of selfreliance and righteousness. The change of fate for Mosolino, and the title of the book, came from words spoken to the lost 16-year-old boy by his aunt, Gloria Jones. Hearing of his uncleâ€™s death, Mosolino made a collect call to Aunt Gloria, who lived in Sagaponack with her own children. (In fact in recent months there have been sparks of controversy between Mosolino and his cousin, Gloriaâ€™s daughter Kaylie Jones, who wrote her own version of the family story called Lies My Mother Never Told Me. According to Mosolino, Jones made some errors that have inflamed him to the extent that he has begun a court case.) Mosolino feared his aunt wouldnâ€™t accept charges for his call, but in fact she told him to stay put, and within an hour a man appeared with cash and a plane ticket to New York. Thus, teenage Mosolino was sprung from Florida street urchin to Hamptons house guest, in the midst of chichi parties with the likes of George Plimpton, Irwin Shaw and Bobby Van. He went to and graduated from East Hampton High School, and thatâ€™s where this story ends. When I spoke to Mosolino about gaps in the story and unanswered questions (such as the fate of his siblings) he revealed that a second installment of his memoirs is in the works. Talking to Mosolino the businessowner was a

bit of a disconnect compared to reading the words of Mosolino the author. In writing, the successful entrepreneur exposes humble, vulnerable experiences that would most likely not be shared in a phone conversation. Now a father of a young boy, the happily married Mosolino is grateful that, even after all the abuse he experienced at the hands of a rebellious Italian father, he can still take his son down the same ski runs in the hills of Pennsylvania that he went on with his brothers, as his elderly father watched from the side. For a man without a preponderance of formal educationâ€”namely, a huge gap of six yearsâ€” Mosolino has a gift for storytelling and putting his thoughts and recollections into language that leaves a lasting impression. The book, which also includes recipes after each chapter, is serious literature in a way that surprises the reader. Mosolinoâ€™s story is not typicalâ€”it isnâ€™t even logical. But it is an American story too often lived yet rarely told: The story of homeless children on the street alone, struggling to survive. Mosolino finds the angel of redemption in the form of Aunt Gloria, a Hamptons socialite who takes him from the street to the fine-laced living of the social elite. Yet he must struggle with the gaps in his upbringing and ability to cope in a world he never knew existed. Come, My Darling, Come by Michael Mosolino is a good read, an emotional read and an important read.

Easy Marks rent law are at odds. Forget nuisance deer. Epley is suggesting we do away with that nuisance code. [Scene opens. A knock at the door.] Woman opens door. Man in Prada suit and Gucci loafers stands before her with briefcase in one hand, bow and quiver of golden arrows in the other. “Hi, I’m your neighbor. The deer are devastating my flowerbeds. Mind if I try to take one down? I probably won’t hit the kids—I took archery at Duke. Here’s my petition.” Sign on the dotted line? I think not. According to The Southampton Press, if deer hunting was allowed in the Village, it would most likely not happen around the Hospital. That’s even more faulty logic. If you’re going to allow it anywhere in the Village, the best place is near the hospital. After all, hunting near the emergency room would save the financially burdened town all those ambulance fees. Don’t want to shoot a deer? How about a turkey? From November 21-25, from sunrise to sunset, residents with a state sporting Illustraion: Lianne Alcone
By Susan M. Galardi Sure it’s fun. Until somebody loses an eye. This time-tested threat has been successful for generations to keep kids from throwing darts, sending acorns soaring with a baseball bat, or pummeling each other with snowballs. Maybe that same warning can be issued to Southampton Village officials who are actually considering expanding the hunting territory for deer. I know, I know. Hunting has been a tradition out here for generations and everyone should be allowed to hunt like their fathers and their fathers before them. That argument made sense at one time, when much of the East End was farmland and dense woods, and the word “wildlife” referred not to party animals but to beasts encountered around Georgica Pond rather than Georgica Lounge. But for at least one entire generation, the East End has become The Hamptons—an area that has taken on less of a rural and more of a suburban look and feel. Wide swaths of potato fields have given way to subdivisions. In the last several decades, since the boom in the ‘80s, towns have been playing catch-up with zoning codes, trying to stave off overdevelopment and further congestion. Yet, if Southampton Mayor Mark Epley has his way, residents in that Village will be able to hunt down deer with a bow and arrow—in their own backyards. Epley thinks, somewhat rightfully so, that deer, with their Lyme-diseased ticks and penchant for darting out in front of moving vehicles, are a health threat. And a resident with a hunting license shooting arrows toward other properties is … what? A boon to public health?
I’ve never been hit by an arrow, but I have been hit by a tick. Mae West said, “I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor. Believe me, rich is better.” Believe me, it has to be better to take a round of antibiotics to get rid of that ungainly rash than to yank an arrowhead out of your thigh. The current law in Southampton states that weapons can’t be shot within 500 feet of a dwelling, roadway or building. But homeowners who establish a hardship can get a nuisance permit to shoot deer within a 500foot radius of their own homes, if all neighbors agree. Clearly, the permit and the cur-

BUSINESS Givin’ You the
RE Agencies Look to Expand Business Model
By T.J. Clemente With the stock market slowly crawling back to its pre-meltdown levels, hopes are now rising for a rebound of the real estate industry in the Hamptons. The titans of East End real estate, Corcoran, Sotheby’s and Prudential, have been altering their business plans to overcome the obstacles that the subprime mortgage crisis has thrown in their path. This vital industry has been crippled by the inability of buyers to get timely mortgages. “Due diligence” has been the explanation from banks for mortgages being issued at an alarmingly slow pace. Making moves to conform to the new realities
of today’s real estate market, Wells Fargo Ventures, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., the nation’s leading mortgage lender, and Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate (PDE), ranked among the top four real estate companies in the country, have entered a joint venture to originate and fund mortgage loans for PDE customers.

license can shoot a wild turkey in the Hamptons with a bow and arrow or shotgun. This is the first year Long Island will allow wild turkey hunting. State officials say it’s necessary to shoot the birds because a DEC initiative—‘seeding’ wild turkeys back to the area in the 1990s—was so successful. It’s estimated that there are 3,000 turkeys in Suffolk. [Scene opens. Two guys in short-sleeved dress shirts in sparse office.] “Hey, Bill. There are thousands of turkeys out in the Hamptons now. Your reintroduction program was a big success!” “Thanks a lot, John. What’ll we do now?” “Shoot ‘em!” So, just in time for Thanksgiving, you too can take down a bird at Barcelona Neck State Park near Sag Harbor, West Tiana Cooperative area, Sarnoff Pine Barrens Preserve and Westhampton Management area. The turkey shoot’s a done deal. Deer hunting in the Village is up for debate—let the mayor know if you’re against it. Otherwise, you and your kids and guests can watch a lovely doe drink from a neighbor’s birdbath and, WHAM! A buck in the yard, or turkey in the bush? What’s your pleasure? Either way, they’re both sitting ducks.

By Dan Rattiner Week of October 25-31, 2009 Riders this week: 6,411 Rider miles this week: 82,099 DOWN IN THE TUBE Sarah Jessica Parker, Martha Stewart, Jimmy Buffett, Jerry Seinfeld, Cindy Adams and violinist Itzhak Perlman sat together while heading eastbound from Southampton last Wednesday. They were going, they said, to a private party. They wouldn’t tell us where it was, but they got off in Amagansett. EMERGENCY WARNING CHANGED Riders of the subway system should note that beginning next Friday, the signal to evacuate the subways and the signal announcing “all clear” are changing. Until now, one toot from the subway horn meant evacuate, two toots meant all clear. After next Friday, two toots will mean evacuate and one toot will mean all clear. We are making this change as a result of orders from the Department of Homeland Security. KIM JONG IL HERE Kim Jong Il, the Supreme Leader of North Korea, was entertained by the steel band Vivian and the Merry Makers when he arrived at Gabreski Airport in Westhampton last Thursday to tour the Hampton Subway System. He came direct from Pyongyang aboard his Aeroflot J-717. Members of his honor guard, who arrived earlier aboard another aircraft, lined the runway in their smart white uniforms, plumed hats and machine guns at the ready. A South Koreanmade black limousine, a Hyundai Octozoom, took him to the subway entrance, the steps of which were festooned with white orchids. He and his entourage toured the entire system, all 16 stops, getting off briefly at each to tap on the walls and, in two instances, the ceilings. Nearly 200 North Korean flags lined every tunnel. Il, who it has been believed might be ill, appeared in excellent health in this, his first appearance in the West in 40 years. He spoke to Subway Commissioner Aspinall, and they shook hands vigorously at the end of the tour. Through an interpreter, Il said he had thought the Hampton Subway might be the perfect model for a Pyongyang Subway he was considering building under that fair city, one strong enough to allow the citizenry to survive an American nuclear attack, but in fact, after the tour, he felt differently. Il left at two p.m. after a small lunch of figs and sliced Kobe beef with the commissioner. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S WEEKLY MESSAGE I was privileged to spend much of last Thursday with North Korean Strongman Kim Jong Il as I accompanied him in a tour of the Hampton Subway from Westhampton Beach to Montauk. I can tell you from personal experience that he is a nice man with a pleasant smile, and although he doesn’t look you in the eye when he talks to you, he doesn’t look at his shoes either. He looks sort of sideways. He promised me that he would never, ever drop a nuclear bomb on any
American city as long as he was in power. His nuclear bombs are merely for defense, he told me. I looked deep into his eyes (he did glance at me for a moment), and I could see he was telling the truth. He then told me he feared a nuclear attack from America, and I laughed and assured him this was not the case as I personally knew our government’s intentions, and that is not what we have in mind. We did once drop a big bomb out that way, but that is another story. He was sorry to say that he was disappointed in the construction of the subway, and that it
would not be necessary for us to provide him with the plans. He found several weaknesses by poking the subway’s underside with a stick. He advised me to have parts of the subway system propped up with two by fours until safety people and construction workers could rebuild those places, but he did not mention any particular spots by name. He then thanked me again for the tour. A nice man, and very honest, everything considered. I am now off to Washington for a debriefing with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and General Stanley A. McChrystal, who is flying in from Kabul to join us. The souvenir book, One Year on the Hampton Subway, is selling well at all BookHampton stores throughout the Hamptons. Get your copy today. It’s only $18.48, which with tax comes to $20.01. We tried making it come out to exactly $20, but we couldn’t do it, was the problem.

bathroom... yea, through the tile, I know it was new, it was very pretty... Anyway, it was pretty loud and the kids got really scared. No, the police are busy with the guy and they’re all over the house taking pictures of the damage. They said to tell you they’ll talk to you in a little bit. Yeah, but wait Mrs. Lowry, it gets worse... please don’t yell at me. I’m just trying to tell you... Oh, hi again, Mrs. Lowry. You took a Xanax? That’s good. Do you have any you can give Mr. Lowry?... Yeah, well, he’ll need them soon. After the cannonball went through the kitchen and the wall to your bathroom, it landed in Mr. Lowry’s closet... no, the gun closet. I know he got that new gun for deer this year. Well, I don’t know one gun from another Mrs. Lowry, but two of them are busted in pieces and two are all right. Maybe you shouldn’t tell him until you get home... Hello? Mr. Lowry??? Yes, it landed in your gun closet. I just told Mrs. Lowry. One of the policemen said you were gonna be really upset when you got home and that they should take the other guns out of the house so you don’t shoot the guy. The cop said your permit got shot, too. Well, I don’t know if it was in your lucky hunting vest, Mr. Lowry. I just heard the cop laugh and say, ‘Damn, he got the permit, too!’ Okay, you’re on your way, I’ll tell the police. Oh, and Mr. Lowry? The kids and I are all right, just in case anyone asks.”
by Marion Wolberg Weiss Non-fiction films used to have a bad reputation, but many have gained international recognition recently. And well they should. Good documentaries are art forms with their own conventions and rules; they could easily take their place alongside many fictional movies. Hats off to the Hamptons International Film Festival for honoring such art forms from its inception 17 years ago (including Hoop Dreams and last year’s Herb and Dorothy). This year’s Learning From Light: The Vision of I.M. Pei not only continues the festival’s commitment but also joins the ranks of very few noteworthy documentaries featuring architects, like the one about Louis Kahn made by his son. The film has many purposes. First, I.M. Pei, at 92, might not be designing more buildings (like Paris’ Pyramide du Louvre and Washington’s East Wing of the National Gallery) after the one featured in this documentary. Yet Pei’s Museum of Islamic Art in Qatar is not just an homage to him, but a celebration of Islamic architecture. American viewers join Pei and director/writer Bo Landin in their fantastic journey of discovery. Learning From Light effectively mixes these diverse objectives in equal measure as we experience both Pei’s thirst for the meaning of Islamic architecture and its practical application to the Museum’s design and construction. The director’s arresting images and moving camera, and Yo-Yo Ma’s enthralling music support such expe-
riences with great clarity and understanding. One favorite scene is the opening montage where sweeping deserts, a majestic sunset and dripping water establish ambience while evoking the nature of Islamic architecture. Pei says: “Sun and desert define the essence of Islamic architecture, rather than the opulence of Alhambra.” How To Live Longer is an entirely different kind of documentary, although it conforms to the traditional conventions: recording events as they happen by the people actually involved. No actors, no scripts. In some ways, this film is similar to Learning From Light, representing a personal journey by director Mark Wexler. Motivated by his mother’s recent death, Wexler sets out to explore the subject of death and dying with a focus on living longer. Non-serious and serious episodes are mixed together: a funeral directors convention with a Marilyn Monroe look-alike; a high school class that studies aging by going to a rest home; and examinations of rejuvenation therapies, like laughter yoga. The most moving segments feature interviews with people over 100, including a 122-year-old woman. These individuals appear physically and mentally alert and serve as powerful inspirations, dismissing stereotypes of feeble elderly people with dementia. Director Wexler’s personal involvement in his documentary is also inspiring as he comes to terms with his mother’s death.

following has happened: A lab working with Tasers in stun mode determined that the effect on humans is far greater than originally thought, because Taser International had tested it primarily on pigs. Pig hearts are about the same size as human hearts, but their chest walls are 10 times thicker. When the lab reduced the chest-wall size of pigs to that of humans, they were able to kill them with a Taser stun to the chest wall. A YouTube video appeared, showing a woman with a shopping bag leaving a supermarket. When an alarm went off by the front door, she was told to stop by an officer and did not, she was felled with the Taser dart. You can see groceries going all over. Brian Platt, one of the police officers who tased
Glowczenski, went on paid leave after claiming he suffered a shoulder injury in the encounter. In June, he filed a $9 million lawsuit against the village, claiming he was owed that due to emotional upset and police department negligence in having a superior officer order him to stun Glowczenski with his Taser. Ed Broich was dismissed from the force for allowing an on-duty officer who reported to him to go off for pizza. Broich continued to actively talk about activities at the force, completely in violation of the supposed “blue wall” that is supposed to keep officers silent, and when he filed a lawsuit against the town, he was countersued and lost his pension. He then ran for village mayor and, last month, lost that race. The Arizona Republic, a daily newspaper in

Phoenix, began monitoring Taser-related deaths on the internet. Between 2000 and 2005, they reported 167 Taser-related deaths around the country. Glowczenski’s is one of them. On September 24, 2008, another man suffering from schizophrenia was out on a fire escape in New York City shouting, cursing and swinging a light bulb on an electrical cord. He was also naked. After failing to talk this man down, the officer in charge, Michael Pigott, ordered officer Nick Marchesona to fire a Taser at him from the ground. The Taser hit its mark and the man, Iman Morales, fell two stories to his death on the sidewalk. Pigott should’ve ordered an inflatable to be put below the man before having him tased. Afterwards, the New York City police department officials, under pressure to do something, openly criticized Officer Pigott, a well decorated Lieutenant. Then they transferred him to a desk job and took his badge and gun away. A month later, Officer Pigott, a resident of Sayville, Long Island with a wife and three children, drove to the Emergency Services Unit Command Center in Brooklyn and, using another officer’s revolver, shot and killed himself. He left a note. Dear Sue, Rob, Mikey and Liz: I love you all. I’m sorry for the mess!! I was trying to protect my guys that day! I ordered Nick Marchesona to fire the Taser! I can’t bear to lose my family and go to jail. Michael Pigott Last Tuesday, Officer Pigott’s wife Susan filed a lawsuit against the New York Police Department claiming that the department had driven him to suicide. * * * When they tell you to remove your shoes at the airport security check, remove your shoes. * * * You can make a pretty good case that we ought to bring back grappling nets.

will prevail.” But as the facts emerged, he knew the jig was up. He will spend a lot of time in jail. And as a convicted felon, which he will soon be, he cannot hold public office. Indeed, last Thursday, after his guilty plea, Motz resigned his post in Quogue. Maybe Quogue will now return to normal. Why I think that might be true is because of this fraud. Motz was elected mayor around the time he was beginning to harbor a dirty little secret. It was surely eating at him. He hired his wife as the one and only village judge. Any psychologist would consider this a classic case. You are breaking the law? Get others to adhere strictly to the law as a sort of atonement. Motz, free to treat the citizenry in this town any way he wanted, chose this course of action for some, but not others. The others, of course, got to be on the mayor’s “side.” And there were, I think, enough of them to get him constantly reelected. We Quogians want our village free of any behavior that might disturb its peace and tranquility, and we will have it with an iron hand. It was a winner at the polls. We hope there will now be a new winner at the polls: the people themselves.

Best Thing for Housing Values? Less Housing By David Lion Rattiner The Community Preservation Fund in both East Hampton and Southampton has worked out to be one of the most brilliant and important accomplishments in the history of both towns. In 1998, East Hampton, Southampton, Riverhead, Shelter Island and Southold obtained from the New York State Legislature the right to levy a two-percent real estate transfer tax on land and housing sales. The transfer tax is paid by the buyer on any amount exceeding $250,000. Since its inception, over 10,000 acres of land has been preserved on the East End, including 40% of the 70 square miles of East Hampton. The result has been a two-fold bonus. The first is that development is curtailed in these areas, allowing more open space to be enjoyed by all. The second benefit is for current landowners, as preservation increases property value. If fewer condos and duplexes are built, home inventory is limited and value goes up. In the last two years, the CPF has been crippled because of the sub-prime mortgage debacle and economic slump nationwide, since its coffers are fed by proceeds from real estate transactions. In both Southampton and East Hampton, the Town Boards planned much of their budgets around an increase or status quo in CPF funds. Both now have to make tough decisions to reduce spending, and pretty much the last thing on the minds of anybody is spending CPF monies. But there is still open space to protect, so what’s a town to do? Well, many are unaware of
this, but Suffolk County also stows money away for purchases of open land. The money comes from sales tax revenues reserved for open space preservation. Last week the County stepped in to help preserve land. Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman recently announced that a 23.8-acre farm located off of Scuttle Hole Road, that’s currently listed for sale will, be bought by the Town of Southampton and Suffolk County, which is footing 90% of the bill. Even though CPF money is down, land is still being preserved. Schneiderman is voicing his concern about how increasingly difficult it is to preserve land on the East End, specifically on the South Fork where prices are so high. Schneiderman explains, “Everybody understands the importance of land preservation, but I do see future problems because there are limited funds. More people are saying, ‘Hey if we spend the money there, we’ll have less money elsewhere and at the same time we’re taking property off of the tax rolls.’” East End preservation has another ally: the Peconic Land Trust, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving land and responsible for 10,000 acres of preservation on Long Island. Often confused with the CPF, the PLT is a separate, privately funded organization. Recently, $37,000 in grants was awarded to the Southampton-based organization from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Land Trust Alliance. The first grant will go toward updating baseline documentation and management plans for the Trust’s conservation easements and preserves in
accordance with Land Trust Standards and Practices, known as the Peconic Land Trust Stewardship Plan. The second grant will go toward a sustainable agriculture education program at the 23-acre Charnews Farm, known as the Charnews Farm Outreach Project. Unlike the CPF and the County’s funds, PLT funds have nothing to do with taxes. But because many people understand the value of land preservation and donate to the pot, PLT is a powerful organization. The economic climate combined with that confusion is making fundraising more challenging. John Halsey, President of the Peconic Land Trust, announced the news about the grants. It is a real testament to the hard work local politicians Fred Thiele, Marc Alessi and Senator Ken LaValle do to ensure that the gorgeous landscapes of our area stay that way. Halsey says, “The significance of the CPP grants is that New York State is supporting many land trusts (there are about 90 throughout the state) with transactions, new programs, capacity-building, technical assistance, etc. While the grants are modest, they can often be leveraged by land trusts... so when times are tough from a fund raising perspective, these grants can be very helpful. The CPF and the Suffolk County Legislature are responsible for some of the most successful preservation projects, but if you’d like to get more information about the Peconic Land Trust, make a private donation or learn how to get involved, visit www.peconiclandtrust.org, or call 631-2833195.

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner Vicariously It’s officially over. It’s too cold to go sailing, the boats are coming out of the water and everybody is thinking about what they’re going to wear for Halloween. It’s the time of year that we all start thinking about going on an adventure or a vacation. Some locals fly south for the winter and run a second business in Key West or some other endless summer location. Others are happy with a trip to Disney World or Jamaica. But by far, the best adventure I’ve heard about this fall is one my friend Colin Graham has decided to go on. Colin is a 26-year-old writer out here in the Hamptons and everybody seems to know him. About a month ago, be told me about his plan over a drink. “I’m thinking about hitting the high seas,” he said. “Like how?” I asked. “Joining the Coast Guard?” “No, man—like becoming a mate on a ship in the fall. I know a lot of people in Sag Harbor that work on ships, and I think I want to do it.” I processed this information the way I normally do when somebody tells me that they’re going to hike around the world and then write a novel about it. I’ll believe it when I see it, I thought. But what I love about Colin is his excitement and enthusiasm whenever he gets an idea in his head. As we left the bar, he had a focus in his eyes unlike any I’ve ever seen before. A few weeks later, he updated his Facebook status: “Heading for the high seas!” I found myself at his apartment, listening in amazement. He was leaving his steady job to be a mate
on a ship for the fall and possibly the winter. He was so into it. He was talking about the ship, what qualifications he needed to pursue, and how he was heading to Maine to meet the captain. At this writing, Colin is casting off from Gloucester, Maine for Charleston, South Carolina, and then the Caribbean. He is one of 11 crewmembers aboard the Spirit of Massachusetts, a sailboat designed for students to study at sea. It is 125 feet long with an 11-foot draft, weighs 90 tons, has 7,000 square feet of sail, a 220-horsepower John Deere engine, and a long-leaf yellow pine and white oak hull. Pretty awesome. The following are some more status updates. “Brushing up on my marine diesel mechanics to prepare for Harvey Gamage next week... making moves all day...” “Back to Sag for the weekend, then off to Gloucester for 4,000 miles of ocean sailing.” “Passed our COI from the Coasties! Setting sail for Charleston on Saturday!!! So excited!” “Day off, provisioning for the cold transit and warm weather ahead, meaning buying a pair of Winter Monkey Grips and as much zinc oxide as I can get my hands on! Hopefully seven-eight foot seas won’t keep us in port tomorrow, Gloucester is getting F-ing cold!” “Sailing for Charleston on Monday...finally! Warm weather, here I come!” “Sea stow yer stuff, we’re casting off today! See you later, Gloucester!!” Sometimes you just got to make a move. It makes life interesting.
(cont’d from page 18)
about how I would use the humor magazine money (by publishing a newspaper instead of a magazine), but the judicial board declined to punish me. They said it was my senior year and to do so would serve no useful purpose. So that was the end of it. After the speech, I was asked to visit the university archives. They had issues of The Campus Times that reported on this prank and its aftermath. They very much wanted me to read some of them, and I did. In one passage of the newspaper, the editors commented on my response to the judicial board about why I had done this. What I had said was I did it to save UGH. Unless this was done, I feared that the newspaper would prevail and that that would be the end of the magazine. I felt the magazine was important to have on the campus. I also mentioned what they had in mind about our little office. In the newspaper, the editors described my response this way: “Mr. Rattiner stated that the flop of the first issue pointed out the need for a second and better issue immediately, in order to bring more people into the UGH organization. ‘We had to do something if the magazine was to survive,’ he said.” UGH stayed in business for a number of years after I graduated. The Campus Times never did get the closet. And thus, even at this lowly level, the Plucked Chicken School of Journalism lived on, even though it wasn’t until years later that it was properly implemented in a newspaper in the Hamptons.

By Ellen Dioguardi As Tina Turner once sang, “You’re simply the best, better than all the rest…” Everyone knows what being the best means and everyone wants to be the best, in some way. It’s even nicer if that particular compliment comes, more or less, unsolicited. For those of you reading this who don’t know what I’m leading up to (I hope you are few and far between) this week is Dan’s Papers Annual Best of the Best issue. What exactly is Dan’s Papers Best of the Best? Well, of course it’s a marketing tool, let’s lay that right on the table. It’s an opportunity for Dan’s Papers to draw attention to some of the great companies and services out here. It’s also a great way for those companies to let the

community know how much they are valued by Dan’s readers and members of our extended community from Manhattan to Montauk. Dan’s Papers Best of the Best contest really is something much more. I can say this quite
THANK YOU FOR VOTING FOR US!
honestly because like everyone, except Dan perhaps, I had a life outside of Dan’s Papers at one point. I’m a 25 year resident of this area and having spent a lot of that time in marketing the Best of the Best awards always had high visibility for me. Plus, I really enjoyed voting for my favorite local businesses and seeing who won. I also loved the zany incongruity of it all. One year Billy Joel tied with Judy Carmichael as “Best Entertainer.” Nothing against Judy Carmichael, who is a fabulous jazz pianist and wonderful entertainer, but Billy’s got more global recognition I’d imagine. I remember seeing at least once when The Lone Sharks tied as Best Band with someone like (I can’t exactly remember) The Who. Again, think globally, act (continued on next page)

Presents the 2009 Best of the Best
Best of the Best Winners, 2008
(continued from previous page)
locally seems to have come into play. The Lone Sharks now win pretty regularly in the Best Local Band category, which I’m sure is just fine with them. The Best of the Best has given local residents and visitors alike the chance to see who their neighbors feel is The Best: hairstylist, plumber, dog groomer or bagel maker. Oh, and let me tell you the votes for Best Bagel goes on for pages. Best of the Best has also given everyone a chance to have some fun.
for Voting Us BEST of the BEST
in Dan’s Papers & the North Fork
Day by Day Calendar and find out What To Do in the Hamptons
631•722•4057 “Quality Craftsmanship from start to finish”
“Picture it painted Professionally” 2007 Award Winner
Take the person who voted for Renee Zellweger in every category this year. I can just imagine them at their computer chuckling away as they typed in Renee Zellweger as best masseuse, hair colorist and yes, dog groomer. We also get a lot of very clever replies like all those readers who filled in, “don’t they already know” for Best Physic, or “M80” for Best Deer Deterrent. Entertaining, informative, eye opening, Dan’s Papers Best of the Best is much like Dan’s Papers itself. It’s all about giving an opinion and having some fun. So we salute all of our readers who entertained us with “whatever you’re buying” as Best Summer Drink, “my wife” as best cleaning service, and Dick Van Dyke as Best Chimney Cleaning Service. We are also thrilled that so many of you took it seriously and voted for your favorites with enough consistency that we were able to declare clear winners in over 300 categories. A behind the scenes look at the votes really lets us know how passionate some of you are about winning or seeing your choices win. While we don’t have that particular category it’s safe to say that Dan’s Papers readers are The Best of the Best too. One of the best parts about winning this prestigious award, which can proudly displayed in your place of business, is the party. Nearly every winning business comes down to celebrate winning. It’s a great opportunity to talk with other business owners, Dan’s Papers employees and even Dan the man himself. This year, like last year, the Best of the Best party will be held at Bay Street Theater, which makes for an excellent venue. Don’t miss it. At this party we take a photograph of all the winners and publish it right here in the pages of this paper. So we hope to see you there. If you won the Dan’s Papers Best of the Best for 2009 give us a call to let us know you’re coming to the party held at Bay Street Theater on the Long Wharf in Sag Harbor. For information about the event you can contact the Dan’s Papers front office by calling 631-5370500.
