Up in the Air George Plimpton, Balloon Boy & Monster in Bridgehampton Pond By Dan Rattiner Shortly after George Plimpton, the novelist and adventurer who lived in Amagansett, died in 2003, his widow arranged for Random House to publish a collection of his best short stories. The lead story in that collection, which many feel was the best he ever wrote, was the true story of a man in Los Angeles who attached helium balloons to his lawn chair and sailed up into the stratosphere for half a day. It was called “The Man in the Flying Lawn Chair.” Plimpton was fond of that story, too. He’d often tell it when he made public appearances. He included it in his introductory remarks when he was the Master of Ceremonies at the Dan’s Papers 30th Anniversary Party at the Montauk Yacht Club in 1990. It also became the title of his 2004 book. The story of Balloon Boy (or Attic Boy), which has been making headlines since Oct. 15, made me think of Plimpton and Larry Walters, the man who flew in the lawn chair. Walters, a truck driver, had been planning to fly in his lawn chair since graduating high school 15 years before. He’d been interested in helium and balloons and flight since he was a boy. He made model planes and flew them. He made miniature balloons and flew them. When he met Carol, the woman he would marry, he told her about his plan. He intended, sometime, to make a helium-filled floating device and take off over California. He thought she should know that.
At first, Carol was supportive. But 15 years later, when he said that it was now or never, she tried to talk him out of it. She said she would go with him. He said it was too dangerous and that he had to go alone. She said he should keep it as a dream. He said he couldn’t do that. She said he should take a parachute. He said he would. She said he should take a skydiving lesson. He did, jumping out of a
July 2, 1982. He set up the lawn chair on the patio of his mother-in-law’s house in San Pedro, hooked everything up with ropes, struggled into his parachute pack, climbed into his chair and began filling helium balloons. As the number of balloons hovering above him passed 45, they began to move the chair. The women shouted and screamed, and suddenly he was off the ground and climbing. He was amazed, startled and frightened. The pellet gun slipped from his lap and fell to earth. He held onto the arms of the chair for dear life. Walters leveled off at 16,000 feet and floated evenly toward the glide path used by airplanes at the Los Angeles airport. There is a report, fully documented, of an alert issued to traffic control by the pilot of a 747. “This is TWA 231, level at 16,000 feet. We have a man in a chair attached to balloons in our 10 o’clock position, range five miles.” Eventually, the helium began to leak and Walters began to slowly descend. He circled around as the wind changed and finally landed in a residential neighborhood near Long Beach. People helped him out of his chair. Someone asked if they could have it, and he gave it to them. He was fine. There is no record of police or firemen or anybody else following Walters on the ground for the seven hours he was aloft. The comment from the pilot was never acted upon. It was filed in the flying-saucer folder. Larry Walters was famous for a while. The
The women shouted and screamed, and suddenly he was off the ground and climbing. plane above San Bernardino. But when she said she hoped that that would get it out of his system, he said no, the time had come. Walters bought an aluminum lawn chair at Sears, 60 basketball-sized helium weather balloons and a pellet gun (he intended to shoot the balloons when it came time to land). On the day before he was scheduled to take off, he bought a two-way radio, a compass, a flashlight, an altimeter, a pocket knife, a medical kit, eight plastic bottles of water (for ballast), a package of beef jerky, a camera, two liters of Coca-Cola and a roadmap of California. Walters took off on the warm clear morning of

After winemaker Roman Roth and Wölffer Estate Vineyard were featured on the “Today” show with Meredith Vieira, Jay Leno spoofed the spot on his show. In the grape-cutting section of the tape, Leno dons lederhosen and strolls through the vineyard rows. * * * East Hampton’s Renee Zellweger will reprise her role in a third Bridget Jones movie—but she won’t be packing on the pounds this time. Concerned about the physical effects of gaining and losing 30 pounds, she’ll wear a fat suit instead. * * * Southampton’s Paris Hilton is currently filming The Other Guy, a cop-action comedy, with Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg and Samuel L. Jackson in New York. Hilton was recently the victim of a celebrity burglary involving her and Lindsey Lohan.

DAN'S PAPERS, November 6, 2009 Page 14 www.danshamptons.com
By Susan M. Galardi Over a period of 20 years, Montauk resident Fred Melamed made “millions” as a voiceover artist. He was the spokesperson for CBS Sports and Mercedes Benz, and played many voiceover parts in Woody Allen movies as well as countless other films, TV series and commercials. “Voiceover was my waitress job for about 20 years,” said Melamed recently over coffee in Bridgehampton. “I have a voice like Orsen Welles—not the voice of a real person.” In the first decade of 2000, all that changed. Commercial media were looking for a different sound—the less articulate guy next door. Suddenly, Melamed’s waitress gig was up. Melamed describes himself during that period, beginning in about 2003, as being in the desert. He moved out to the East End from Manhattan with his wife Leslee Speier and 18-month-old twin sons. “After decades of being so busy, suddenly it came to very little,” he said. “But it encouraged me to go back to acting again, and writing.” Then Melamed got serious. A call came from the powerhouse directing team, the Coen brothers, who were getting ready to shoot their latest film, A Serious Man (now playing in East Hampton at the UA movie theatre).
Fred Melamed, Actor
“They called me directly,” said Melamed, beaming at the memory. “It’s very exciting when a director calls you and offers you a role.” The role is Sy Ableman, “the most insufferable, pompous windbag,” Melamed said with a laugh.
For his work, he has received unanimous critical acclaim. The Chicago Tribune said, “Fred Melamed plays Sy, and the role is unthinkable in any other hands.” The New York Times called him “splendidly unctuous,” and Roger Ebert said of the cast, “My favorite is Melamed.” In addition, The L.A. Times’ Oscars update predicted Melamed would take the statue for Best Supporting Actor, and in fact, as of this writing, he is on six major critics’ lists for that specific award. “I’ve been in this long enough to know not to get caught up in the whirlwind,” said Melamed. “But if you’ve spent some time in the desert, it’s very nice. It makes you very grateful.” Most ironic about Melamed’s quick assent—if not from a pile of ashes but the dunes of Montauk—is that he never auditioned for the role. He knew the Coens from his graduate school days at Yale Drama, where he met fellow students John Turturro and Frances McDormand, who was in the first film the brothers made and is married to Joel Coen. “We were in the same orbit,” Melamed said. He didn’t run across the Coens again until 1990, when they were casting Barton Fink. “I auditioned for the role of a movie studio head and came in second,” he said. Then came another opportunity with the eccentric (continued on page 22)

A scene from the film, The Perfect Storm
Be Prepared Three Levels of Certification for Montauk Coast Guard Coxswain By Dan Rattiner There is a monument out at the Montauk Lighthouse dedicated to local people who are lost at sea while earning their livelihood off our shores. It happens every few years. Someone is blown overboard or there is an accident of some sort. At the annual Blessing of the Fleet ceremony every June, when Montauk’s fishing boats parade before religious leaders for their annual blessing, the last boat is always a Coast Guard boat that, when required, carries on board the family members of those lost the previous year. After passing through the jetties and heading off for half an hour, the cutter approach-

es the Montauk Lighthouse, where wreaths are cast upon the water in memory of those who have died. It is a touching and important conclusion every year to the Blessing of the Fleet. Because Montauk takes the loss of its men and women so seriously, and because the town relies so heavily on the work of our men and women at the Coast Guard station on Star Island for help in times of distress, it has come as a shock to the town that the current commander, a very dedicated, well-liked man, is being disciplined by his higher-ups. Our chief is James Weber, and last week, he was temporarily relieved of his command
for taking two crews of guardsmen aboard identical 47-foot Coast Guard surfboats into heavy surf conditions off Montauk this past August. A review of the incident is taking place by order of Rear Admiral Joe Mimmich of the 1st District Headquarters in the Battery, and within a few weeks it will be decided whether the removal of Weber’s command is to be permanent, or if some other outcome is possible. Perhaps he can be reinstated. Certainly the town hopes so. There are three levels of certification that can be achieved by all commanders of ships (continued on page 20)
THE HORRORS OF THE MTA TAX
By T.J. Clemente The recently enacted (Sept. 1, 2009) MTA Payroll Tax is a smack in the face to all Suffolk County businesses that now must pay $34 in tax for every $1,000 in payroll. The only exemptions are businesses with yearly payrolls totaling less than $2,500. Every business, as well as Suffolk County towns, must pay this tax on all their employees including teachers (which will cause an increase in school tax), lifeguards and policemen (which will cause an increase in town
and village taxes), and hospital workers. The same is true for all other Suffolk County employees. Not even non-profit organizations like churches, Goodwill and the Salvation Army are exempt. In fact even independent contractors—meaning the 1099 form people—will have to pay this tax. New York State Assemblyman Fred Thiele spoke of all the horrors of this tax, which he vehemently opposed. He called it “geographical politics at their worst,” explaining how New York City representation tailored this
law to bail out the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s $1.2 billion deficit on the back of 12 counties that MTA trains pass through, regardless of volume (Montauk sees three trains a day). He stressed that there is no “sunset” clause to this tax, which opens the door for future increases—a very ugly thought for struggling East End businesses that are also watching mandated health care coverage cost increases head their way.

FAA fined him $1,500. He was on the “Tonight Show.” He was on “Letterman.” He was treated with the respect someone gets when they have scaled the side of a New York City skyscraper. Letterman asked how he felt with the event over. “Life seems sort of empty,” Walters said, “because I always had this to look forward to.” Other than that, he said, he was delighted with all the publicity. In October of 1993, Walters went hiking in the California mountains and fatally shot himself in the heart. He was 44. That event also made news, but in the back sections of newspapers and on cable. It seemed very out of character for him. He was really such a happy guy, Carol told people. Plimpton’s account of all this appeared in the New Yorker in June of 1998. It was such a wonderful piece that it was not only collected as the lead piece in the short story book, but also optioned for film. It eventually became a movie called Danny Deckchair starring Rhys Ifans and released in 2003. The circumstances of the current caper, of course, have taken a very different turn. Balloon Boy Falcon’s mother and father could very well do jail time for pretending that their six-year-old son was aloft in their homemade helium balloon over Fort Collins, Colorado for two hours. The charges include lying to authorities to get them running around after Balloon Boy, and violating child labor laws, since the Heene kids, all younger than 10, were in on the hoax. I don’t see where the child labor part of this is going. The parents told their kids to “help dad” by lying. It would get them a TV show. Wives are not allowed to testify in court against their husbands. Kids can be in on things, too. I might note that the kid did not spend the whole time in the attic over the garage, which might be considered child abuse. He stayed in the house during the escapade, and hid in the attic when the authorities came to look around. I think the real sin the parents committed was tricking everyone, making authorities run around crazily and forcing the closing of a nearby airport for several hours. Not nice and very expensive. A REAL emergency might have been ignored because of this hoax. Hoaxes take place all the time, particularly in this newspaper. (Ever taken the Hampton Subway?) But it’s all in fun. Once, I wrote a story about an attempt to locate a Loch Ness-type sea monster in the Hamptons in a pond in the woods north of Bridgehampton. I said that students from St. Johns University were living in a camper out there and trying to document the monster with cameras, videotape and audio equipment. As a result of this, ABC sent a newschopper with reporters and photographers to try to interview these students and perhaps see the monster. When ABC found out they were hoaxed, they were pretty pissed at me. But I never did any jail time. An account of this story is in the chapter “Jim Jensen” in my memoir In the Hamptons, which was published last year—by Random House, coincidentally. The memoir’s still selling well in all bookstores. A sequel, In the Hamptons Too, will be published in May 2010. The earlier book will appear in paperback that month, too.

Me, My Remote and I A 21st-Century Story about Stopping Time for the World Series By Dan Rattiner This is a true 21st-century story, and it involves a terrible text message I received as I was plugging my iPhone into its charger in East Hampton just a few minutes before one o’clock in the morning on October 23. The text read ARE YOU WATCHING THE YANKEES?, and it came from my daughter in California, where it was three hours earlier—10 p.m. her time. Frankly, it ruined everything. One of the big fascinations in sports is that you root for your team and hope and hope and hope. On TV, you often see the fans, at crucial moments, with their hands touching in prayer in front of their faces, trying to invoke God to help them through. You just never know. This particular night was the second game of
the American League Pennant playoff between the Yankees and Angels. It began at 8 p.m. EST. I am not a baseball fanatic but I do watch important games, and this was one of them. We would be out to dinner at Nick and Toni’s at 8 p.m. So, at 2 p.m., thinking ahead, I scheduled to record the 8 p.m. game on TiVo. I would get home around 10, put the game on from the beginning but whiz through all the commercials, and get to bed at 11:30, satisfied with whatever the outcome might be. In case you are interested in whom I root for, I spent my boyhood going to Brooklyn Dodgers games. I know that dates me but I don’t care. This means that I root for anybody who plays against the Yankees. Since this year, or since the All Star Break anyway, the Yankees have
played the game better than anybody in the history of the game, and that is a fact. This perverse rooting has been a formidable task for me. We got home from dinner, as planned, at 10 p.m. I was full of my favorite dish at this restaurant—roasted chicken with baked potatoes, garlic and pancetta—and I was a happy camper. I would get through three hours of angst in two (I could clasp my hands and pray for the Angels, an appropriately named team, at fast forward), and go to sleep satisfied. I should note that when I set this up at 2 p.m., I was very smart. Baseball games in the 21st century are very cerebral and calculating affairs, often moving at a glacial pace and exceeding the three hours allotted them by the (continued on next page)

networks. The networks oblige by removing any regularly scheduled programs that might be in the way. So what I did was schedule to record the three hours of the game, the halfhour post game and the two half-hour “Seinfeld” episodes after that. That would take me until 12:30 a.m. in real time. Four-and-ahalf hours would be plenty of time to complete a ballgame. On my TV, the game proceeded slowly and methodically into a drizzle. It was indeed taking a long time, but the prediction was that the drizzle would evolve into an angry storm (they’d break occasionally to show this green and yellow blot from AccuWeather moving jerkily up the coast), and that the game would likely have to be postponed. Good, I thought around 10:30. I can go to bed early. The score was Angels 2, Yankees 0. I was so proud of myself. The game continued through the drizzle ever so slowly. There was foul ball after foul ball after foul ball, plus trip to the pitcher’s mound by the catcher, trip to the mound by the coach and then trip to the mound by the manager. In the fifth, the Yankees tied it up 2 to 2, and the game continued on into the drizzle. I marveled as I always do at the length and number of commercials between innings. In real time, you don’t really notice how long these take. Anyway, I was silently whizzing through. I couldn’t tell you what they were about really. I was so proud of myself. As we approached the four-and-a-half hour mark on my TiVo, which was around 11:30 my
time but 12:30 TiVo time, it became obvious to me that two things were about to occur. One was that I would not see the last of the game. It would freeze sometime in the eighth inning. The other was that the rainstorm was worsening. The game would either freeze in the eighth or the umps would call it off because of the rain just before then. At that four-and-a half-hour mark, with the score still 2 to 2 in the top of the eighth, it did indeed freeze. An Angel was walking to the plate. The rain pellets were clearly visible, stopped in mid-air. I turned the TV off with a mixture of 1/10 frustration and 9/10 contentment. It was 11:15 p.m. The game would end one way or another. I could get a good night’s sleep. Chris and I got ready for bed. I picked up a book I was reading—Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn—and we read in bed for quite a while. The rainstorm soon began to kick up outside our bedroom window. I lit a fire. We read some more, and at a quarter to one in real time, I made final preparations to turn out the lights. I plugged in the laptop, turned off the lights, looked out the window at the storm, which so recently had been over Yankee Stadium, and plugged in the iPhone. Plugging it in lights it up. There was the message. ARE YOU WATCHING THE YANKEE GAME? I considered calling the daughter, but decided against it. She’d just tell me what the hell was going on. No, I will go downstairs and watch whatever this drama is in real time. I got up to

go downstairs—and suddenly thought to check when my daughter had sent the text. She had sent it, according to the iPhone, almost an hour before I saw it. Dramatic moments in baseball happen fast—it would be over by now. I lay back down in a funk. So be it. I’d read about it in the morning. But three hours for a baseball game with a three-program extension was not enough. I had, messing with time, actually out-computerized myself. I tried to figure out what I could have done differently to be able to go back down to see the end, but messing with the various times in my head only made me sleepy. Shortly, I was miserably out. Well, it turned out the umps had let the game go right into and through the downpour. It actually outlasted the downpour. It went 13 innings, the teams used 14 pitchers and more than 400 balls were thrown. The Angels scored a run in the top of the eighth just after the freeze to go ahead, but in the bottom of the ninth A-Rod came up and hit a dramatic solo homerun to send the game into extra innings. It went on and on. The downpour returned to a drizzle, and finally, the Yankees won the game on a fielding error in the bottom of the thirteenth. After this incident, I decided that it will never happen again. You want me to mess with time? I will mess with time. I hold the ultimate weapon: the remote. Now, I TiVo baseball games for the three hours plus six—count ‘em, six— programs after that, for a total of about seven hours all together. This will never happen again.

HAMPTON SUBWAY WINS ANOTHER AWARD Commissioner Aspinall is in Rio de Janeiro
this week for the annual Worldwide Subway Council Meeting, and is expected to pick up another award for the Best Lighted Subway System, Northeastern United States Region for Cities of Less Than 200,000. He won it last year. The trophy is so large that he will have to buy it a second first-class seat on the plane when he flies back here next week. CLOSE MECOX? A survey will be done next week to determine if the subway should close down the Mecox Station. Few people use it, and those who want to come near Mecox usually travel only a mile or two west and east, to Water Mill or Bridgehampton. It’s expensive staffing the Mecox Sation in these hard times.

LARGEST SCULPTURE EVER ON A SUBWAY PLATFORM Subway Commissioner Aspinall has commissioned noted Springs sculptor Adrien Bordeaux to build the largest sculpture ever on a subway platform. Bordeaux’s solution is a unique one. Having determined it impossible to get any sculpture the size he has in mind down the escalators, he will bring in the sculpture aboard the subway itself. Since subway cars are not very large either, he intends to jackhammer out part of the Amagansett platform to accommodate a spur of railroad tracks upon which a new stationary subway car can be pulled in and parked. He will retrieve a subway car from the Montauk Yards, drive it to Amagansett and park on the dead-end spur between the actual tracks and the platform. For art openings and viewings, straphangers will be able to enter from the shortened platform on one side and an in-use but stopped subway car on the other. The subway car will contain Bordeaux’s smaller works, including 12 life-size bronze straphangers. Each month the bronze straphangers will be moved around to different parts of the car, and there will be a new art opening with wine and cheese. “The art will be the subway car itself and the arrangement of the bronzes within,” Bordeaux says, explaining why the same sculpture deserves openings every month.

in the Coast Guard. Each level is progressively more difficult than the one before. The first is Basic Coxswain for piloting a boat in normal weather. The second is Heavy Weather Coxswain for rough seas. The third is the most difficult of all and licenses coastguardsmen to pilot a ship for anything up to the Perfect Storm. All licenses have to be renewed every year to make sure that those holding them continue their level of training. There are certain training benchmarks that must be met. Weber was certified at the highest level. He had achieved the certification of “surfman,” but not at Montauk, because Montauk is not considered a heavy surf location. Inasmuch as Weber was put in command of Montauk, he was thus unable to train there to continue his surfman rating, and at the time of the incident, his certification had expired. The incident itself was the arrival of 30foot surf and 120 mile-per-hour winds of Hurricane Bill 50 miles east of Montauk. This hurricane created enormous surf to its west as it churned counterclockwise up from the southern Atlantic. In Montauk and throughout the Hamptons, people actually camped out on the beaches to watch the amazing surf created by the passage of this hurricane. It roared north at about 40 knots, and here, 50 miles away, our surf was 20 to 30 feet high for a period of 12 hours. As this hurricane neared, Weber ordered his two surfboats out into the sea off
Montauk for a training mission. He captained one of the boats and planned to train the captain of the other boat, who had never been certified to work ships in this kind of surf. They were out for several hours, struggling up one side of the waves and down the other and learning the best angles to approach them. According to the Coast Guard senior staff, during this time Weber was endangering the lives of his crew and putting brand-new million-dollar boats at risk. “Mr. Weber stepped outside the rules the Coast Guard has in place to perform this operation,” the charge temporarily relieving him says. According to those on the scene, Weber spoke to the Section Commander of the Coast Guard at Shinnecock before ordering his men out. It is not known if Weber just informed Shinnecock of what he was about to do, or was asking permission, or what. Such surf conditions off Montauk come only once every 10 years or so. This was a once-in-alifetime chance for surf training at Montauk. All these matters are part of the investigation. Neither of these ships are the largest in Montauk. The largest in the slips at Star Island is the 87-foot Cutter Ridley, commanded by Sr. Chief Boswains Mate Jeff Ryan. In heavy seas of this sort, the Ridley might have gone out for training, but it did not. Ryan does not report directly to Weber. Ryan was never asked.
How this will turn out nobody knows. The town hopes that Weber will just receive a reprimand and be back. No one was hurt. No ships were damaged. Everyone learned something. Some years ago, this newspaper sponsored an event at the Montauk Lighthouse called “Flight to Portugal.” People entering the event threw homemade model aircraft off the cliff there in hopes of winning a free trip to Portugal, which was the first prize offered by the Portuguese National Tourist Office in Manhattan. Offshore at the start of that event was the Point Wells, the 80-foot cutter that preceded the Ridley as the largest ship in the Montauk Coast Guard Fleet. I had asked and was happy to have them out there, standing by if needed. Much of the Montauk fishing fleet, along with sport-fishing boats, the media, surfers, a band, a barbecue and a crowd of spectators were on hand. It was a rough day, though, and about one hour into the event, the Point Wells got a call from a ship in distress in the 20-foot seas just off our shores, and they went off to assist. There were priorities for the Point Wells. Everyone understood that. We are lucky to have a Coast Guard station in Montauk. I am glad there are priorities, and we are all glad that the crew there is highly trained to handle emergencies. We hope that Chief Weber will be back. But overriding that is the fact that the Coast Guard will do what it has to do to keep us safe.

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner Yankees By the time you read this, the New York Yankees will have won the World Series. Wait—I don’t want to jinx it. Forget the sentence you just read. It’s bad luck for me to say that they will win right now. However, since you are reading this, maybe it doesn’t matter because it’s the future, so maybe it’s okay for me to say that they are the champions, even though they haven’t won yet. This World Series in particular has been one of the strangest. Like many people, I seriously believe that certain things I do while watching the game affect the outcome. What is scary is

COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE Apparently, riders have been confused by the changes in our emergency evacuation warning signals. As a result, it will be a topic at our next board meeting, which will be held in the main office next Wednesday. Until then, there will be no emergency evacuation warning signals, so everybody is just on their own.

that this seems to be true time and time again. For example, ever since A-Rod became a Yankee, I’ve brought him bad luck. I used to think that it was just in my head, but now I’m convinced that when A-Rod strikes out, it’s my fault. Remember in game one of the World Series when he struck out twice in a row? That was my fault. Whenever I watch a Yankees game in a bar and A-Rod gets up to bat, he strikes out. It is seriously a 100%-of-thetime thing. When a Yankees game is on, no matter where I am, when A-Rod gets up to bat, the conversation goes something like this: “A-Rod is up to bat. Watch this, Dave, he’s going to hit a homerun.” “I better leave the room.” “Why?” “He always strikes out when I’m watching him hit. It’s a near certainty.” “Don’t be ridiculous.” And I’ll stay and A-Rod will strike out. During game one of the series I watched in terror as the Yankees lost because of my bad ARod luck. I wasn’t taking myself seriously enough. Who am I? I thought. Where do I get off thinking that I am somehow connected to A-Rod striking out when I watch him go to bat? I don’t believe in this mumbo-jumbo. And of course, whenever you treat any curse in such a way, it comes back to bite you tenfold.

The Yanks lost game one. I avoided watching game two all together. How crazy is that? I went out to my car and turned the radio on to get an update. I checked Yahoo Sports on my iPhone and received text messages from my friends when big plays took place. The Yanks needed me to do this. I couldn’t be selfish and watch the game and cause A-Rod to have two consecutive strikeouts again. Taunting my Red Sox fan friends (are they real friends?) was worth the disconnect from the game. The Yankees won game two. During games three and four I watched, but every time A-Rod got up to hit I left the room. The Yankees won both games. Gulp. So I guess I don’t get to watch one of the best players in baseball bat during the World Series out of my love for my team. It’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make in order to be able to shut down any Red Sox fan for the next six months. Go, Yankees!

filmmakers. â€œThey remembered when they were casting Hudsucker Proxy with Paul Newman and Tim Robbins,â€? Melamed said. â€œBut the role required appearing naked save for a diaper. I turned it down.â€? Fast forward to a few years ago. The Coens were working on three films: Burn after Reading, No Country for Old Men and A Serious Man. They were screening footage of the Woody Allen film Hollywood Ending, to look at actress Tia Leoni. Melamed happened to be in the scene. â€œThey said, â€˜Oh, Fred. Heâ€™d be good for Sy,â€™â€? said Melamed. Thus the phone call. The Coens decided they wanted to cast A Serious Man with unknowns. Asked how that made him feel, Melamed answered with his booming voice, â€œhappy that I could get a good part in it!â€? Melamed felt the script â€œwas brilliant,â€? and shooting the film was â€œtotal fun and joy. I had an absolute, joyous blast. The most fun Iâ€™ve ever had.â€? The Coens, precise in their writing and directing, rarely agree to deviation from their written words. Yet Melamed said they allow the actors great freedom. â€œThey give you a fully realized character, script and milieu, and leave the rest up to you,â€? he saidâ€”unlike Woody Allen. â€œHeâ€™d say, â€˜Hereâ€™s the script but if you donâ€™t like it, say anything you want.â€™â€? A Serious Man is the story of Larry Gopnik, a professor whose life is falling apart on many levels. His wife Judith (played by Sari Lennick)
requests a spiritual divorce so she and Sy can marry. Larryâ€™s daughter steals money from him for her nose job, his son steals from his sister to pay off drug debts. His brother Arthur (played by Richard Kind), has moved in, and his students are blackmailing him. Larry consults with sever-
about E. Forbes Smiley, a cartographic authority and map dealer who built the collections of wealthy collectors and venerable institutions. After 20 years as a respected, well-liked insider, Smiley was caught stealing from the Beinecke Library at Yaleâ€”he used an Exacto blade to cut from a book an original 400-year-old map of â€˜New Englandâ€™ drawn by Captain John Smith of Pocahontus fame.â€? Smiley, whose 3 1/2-year jail sentence ends in January, was also Melamedâ€™s college roommate and his friend for many years. â€œAbout 10 years ago, Forbesâ€™ wife and I tried to convince him to go to therapy. He never talked to me again.â€? Once Melamed strikes a deal for the film, he hopes to make it on the East End. In addition to now auditioning for major films, Melamed spends his time on the board of the Child Development Center of the Hamptons (CDCH). When his twin sons were 14 months old, they were both diagnosed with autism. Living in the city, the Melameds were on waiting lists to get the services the children needed. By a circuitous path, they found Janice Goldman, then the head of CDCH who guaranteed that Lee and Alec would have the necessary early intervention treatment and services. Now seven years old, the twins continue to do very well at CDCH. â€œTheyâ€™re both very happy children,â€? said Melamed. Melamed had an interesting childhood him-
â€œCriticizing the film as anti-Semitic was inevitable. That happens when you deal with a specific group, especially one obsessed with its own persecution.â€? al rabbis, who offer him little practical advice. The play was described by one critic as â€œ100% Jewish,â€? which has led to some accusations of anti-Semiticism against the Coens, who are Jewish. Melamed said, â€œIn all of their films, the Coens made broad fun of a lot of people. Criticizing the film as anti-Semitic was inevitable. That happens whenever you deal with a specific groupâ€” especially a group that tends to be obsessed with its own persecution. I can say that because Iâ€™m a Jew.â€? While enjoying the attention brought on by the film, Melamed is working on his own project: finishing a screenplay called Also, A Villager, which he hopes to direct. â€œItâ€™s a fictionalized account

DAN'S PAPERS, November 6, 2009 Page 23 www.danshamptons.com
Rethinking Appraisals–Quick! By T.J. Clemente The slide of the real estate industry on the East End is beginning to show signs of traction. Buyers are looking for values and sellers are attempting to market their homes and properties to maximize the price they can command. This sounds great, but a routine aspect has leant a new dynamic to this process: the bank appraisal. At this time in our economic history, many legitimate buyers and sellers are being penalized by lax practices of the past that may have caused property appraisals to be inordinately high. Too many plum-home equity loans or mortgages that were in excess of 100% of the true value of the home have defaulted. There’s hardly anyone anywhere who wouldn’t admit this was happening during the real estate bubble. Perhaps the correction of these past abuses is becoming an abuse in itself. Now banks are appraising properties in double digit percentages below selling prices to cover banks or other lenders in case real estate prices experience another dip. What this is doing is throwing a monkey wrench right in the middle of the beginning stages of recovery. One local banking official stated off the record, “It may seem wrong but look at the money banks lost, and look at the number of people at banks who lost their jobs trusting real estate agents’ and mortgage brokers’ appraisers.” What she intimated is that there is a new standard of not only putting current market value (meaning the selling price) into the appraisal, but also of recent market trends— meaning the falling values over the last two
years. Until a reliable, credible trend is documented to survive a banker’s scrutiny, this highranking official said, “Don’t expect this practice to change—the new system of accountability has consequences.” When speaking to Bridgehampton National Bank CEO Kevin O’Connor last spring, he explained BNB’s success and profitability were caused by many factors but noted that “due process” on all loans was never lax at his bank. “We never changed our sound business model,” he said then. So now it seems only logical that all banks are going back to basics, and at the moment, maybe factoring recent downward trends in value too much. This isn’t supporting a recovery of the real estate industry on the East End. In fact, it creates tension between buyers, sellers and real estate agents when the bank tells everyone they will appraise a home selling at $825,000 at only $650,000. “They’re trying to be conservative,” said Mike Davis, an associate professor of real estate at the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. “They’re not willing to call the shot on the market turning around.” Then there’s the fact that appraising isn’t an absolute science. “It can be a relatively haphazard process,” said Sam Chandan, president of Real Estate Econometrics and adjunct professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. “It’s not like stock markets, where there are pieces of Microsoft being traded at every moment.” But if someone is willing to pay a price, is that not the value of the home? Maybe.
It’s been reported that real estate agents and appraisers are now blaming new rules, collectively called the Home Valuation Code of Conduct, that went into effect May 1. These rules apply specifically to mortgages sold to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and were a result of an investigation by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. Another complaint is that banks are using new appraisers that aren’t truly up-todate on the markets they’re appraising. Some believe banks have chosen appraisers from lower-income areas to appraise homes in higherpriced residential areas in order to keep appraisals from being overpriced. This is disturbing to many agents, buyers and sellers, who now feel that government oversight must be introduced so that the buyer, seller and even the real estate agent are protected from underappraising. As one seller said, “I, too, should have some protection on my asset. If a buyer wants to pay me $825,000 for my home, why should a bank appraiser be able to come in and say my home is only worth $700,000? That is an injurious action.” Appraisals were once tools to find the true values of homes, not mechanisms to protect banks from worst-case scenarios. Due diligence shouldn’t mean compensating for past mistakes by establishing incompetent practices. The good news is that the problem is being exposed, which may cause some banks to consider how this practice is preventing the real estate market from getting stronger, thus reducing their financial risk on existing home mortgage loans.

Biz: MTA Tax Horror
(continued from page 15)
Thiele acknowledged this was done by city politicians to prevent increasing tolls on East River bridges and transit fares in NYC, at this sensitive time when important state and local elections loom. Thiele stated that Suffolk County State Senator Brian Foley of Brookhaven betrayed Suffolk County businesses by voting for this $1.5 billion tax that will injure every business and town in the county. The ramifications are mind-boggling. Thiele said he could not see the wisdom of raising taxes on already-struggling businesses, and boldly predicted that New York could be the last state “out of the recession due to the way the state has chosen to deal with the its budget deficit, and the passing of this MTA payroll tax.” When asked why he didn’t filibuster the bill, Thiele said, “I would of if I could, but in New York State there is a limit to the time of debate for each representative.” Other local political leaders have suggested that the new tax is so unfair that Suffolk County business as a whole will be paying the MTA $3,000-$4,000 in tax for each commuter that uses the Long Island Railroad. All East End towns will be supporting the NYC subways and their high-salaried employees—not to mention a myriad of overpaid MTA executives. An employee of one of Montauk’s largest employers, which has more than 100 employees in the off-season, said the tax will cost the business an extra
$1,500-$1,700 per week, and over $100,000 a year. The Southampton Business Alliance is up in arms about the tax and plans meetings to see what they can do, but Thiele explained that NYC has the representation in Albany to keep this abusive tax on the books. But the truth is that too many political leaders are losing touch with the realities of the cumulative effect of their actions. This action has only added to the burdens of small and large business. Through legislative restrictions and taxes, new fees, ever increasing taxes (both personal and real estate), escalating health care cost, unstable but extremely high energy cost, and gun-tothe-head rent increases, it’s a tough environment. This MTA tax is another larger stone weighing down the independent business trying to stay afloat in these troubling times. The ramifications of this new tax have yet to truly surface. The anger will be pointed at Albany in the next governor election. But the plain truth is that this tax is here to stay. It is paying for a bankrupt, over-staffed MTA transit system, and only enables the system to become more inefficient and costly. This is more than what Thiele called “geographical politics at their worst.’’ The MTA payroll tax is another call to overburdened, independent businesses to fix the ills of bad government, made by political figures who don’t care who suffers along the way as long as they win elections.

self. Born in Manhattan, he was adopted at two weeks old and raised on the Upper East Side by his adoptive father, television producer Louis Melamed, and an aspiring actress mother. Young Fred went to Hunter College Elementary School, then Riverdale Country School before moving on to Hampshire and Yale. He worked at the highly respected Guthrie Theatre, and appeared on Broadway in Amadeus. At the age of 27, Melamed got another lifechanging phone call from a woman who left the message, “My name is Nancy. Please call me collect in Los Angeles.” Assuming it was career related, the young actor called and the woman said, “I’m your birth mother.” They met, and the connection was apparent to Melamed at first sight. As it turned out, Nancy (Zala) got pregnant at 20 and arranged with her OB/GYN to have the child adopted. She subsequently had a career as an actress and filmmaker. When he was 50, Melamed met his biological father, who is a retired psychoanalyst related to the renowned acting family the Adlers. “It all made sense,” he said of his genetic make-up. As opposed to every detail of A Serious Man, which don’t always make sense. “Some films end in a tidy way that lets you return to your life when you leave the theatre,” said Melamed. “This one doesn’t.” Considering the impact A Serious Man had on Melamed’s professonal life, he should know.

DEC’s Low-Key Suffolk Meeting on “Deer Management” By Jerry Cimisi One would have thought the DEC’s Suffolk County meeting on “deer management,” held at the Shoreham-Wading River Public Library on Sept. 24, would have been contentious, with impassioned leave-the-deer-alone types and the hell-with-the-deer types angrily espousing their party line. But it had absolutely none of that.
There were 16 men in attendance; each was a hunter. On a screen at the front of the room was a photo of a blonde woman in camouflage proudly crouching by a deer she’d “taken,” even though were only two women at the meeting, who were with the DEC. At any rate, it was a matter of preaching to the choir in that the DEC considers hunters one of its most important tools (if not the

most important) for keeping the state’s deer population at a “desirable level.” At least that’s the way DEC’s young wildlife biologist, Michael Clark, put it: “It’s going to be a sad day when hunters can’t do what we need.” Just what is the current deer census, and what would be a “desirable level?” Clark said, “It’s very hard to estimate. There are too many variables.” He added that the DEC determined what was “too many or too little” by “listening to constituents.” It’s no surprise that the “deer issue” depends as much – or more – on one’s perspective as it does on the facts. One person gets Lyme disease from deer ticks; another is enchanted by deer gathering at twilight in the yard. If estimates of the deer population are hard to come by, it is probably a surprise to learn that there are many more deer in the state at the beginning of the 21st century than there were at the beginning of the 20th. Before 1900, people just hunted what they wanted, and killed as many as they wanted when they wanted. Clarke projected a chart showing a precipitous drop in deer levels, plummeting toward 1900. Above this nadir was a grinning picture of Teddy Roosevelt, an enthusiastic hunter whose “kindness” in not shooting a bear cub after he’d shot the mother brought forth the Teddy Bear, and also began the national parks system, which became ironic Edens for those who loved to hunt and those who wished animals remain unharmed. With regulations, the deer population eventually returned to at least half its levels (again, estimated) in the early days of America. The DEC, by at once encouraging hunters and regulating them, wants to keep this balance. Clark raised other topics: regional task forces that meet every three to five years to discuss and plan changes in deer management; changing the current law that says a hunter must not discharge a weapon within 500 feet of a residence and is considered too restrictive; experimental feeding stations such as those on Shelter Island, North Haven and Fire Island; an increase to a take of does (a big key to deer management); liability, in that landowners who allow hunters to use their property are not, by law, liable for any accidents as a result of this use; and the need to encourage young hunters. “The average age of a (continued on next page)

hunter in 1984 was 42; now it’s 48,” Clark related. “There were 712,000 registered hunters in the state in ‘84; now there are 512,000.” When asked about this decrease, Clark said, “I think it’s a cultural thing.” William Tuthill, 52, a hunter and retired fireman living in Nassau, said, “Nothing’s more cruel than nature. We’d rather take an animal in a humane way than see it suffer in an unmanaged deer population in the wild.” Tuthill, whose father and grandfather were hunters, has hunted upstate and on the East End, and is a descendent of one of the oldest families to settle this area. “The difference is, your meat comes wrapped in plastic, mine in fur,” he said. I countered that I was a vegetarian so that didn’t apply to me, but the point about meat eaters decrying hunting when they purchase products of factory farming is nothing less than a convenient hypocrisy. Tuthill hunts with a bow. Two-thirds of the 2,530 deer taken in Suffolk last year were by bow. “An arrow usually goes right through them. They don’t really feel it. They know something’s happened but they don’t know what. They are bleeding internally. They keep on feeding, walk around a little, lie down, go to sleep.” Sami Eljami, in his mid-20s, had to be the youngest hunter at the meeting. He talked about being exposed to hunting by his uncles in Morocco and finally gaining enough skills to bring down deer on Long Island. Clark exhorted hunters: “You’re a minority. In order for your voice to be heard, it’s got to be loud.” The DEC seeks comments: Deer Management Program, NYSDEC. 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-4750. Website: www.dec.ny.gov

By Susan Galardi
When Richard Wiese was 11 years old, his father (the first person to solo the Pacific in an airplane) took him on a little adventure: climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Wiese followed in his father’s exploring footsteps on a life of adventure. He has cross-country skied to the North Pole, discovered 29 new life forms in a Kilimanjaro crater and put satellite collars on jaguars in the Yucatan. In 2002 he became the youngest president of the 100-year-old Explorers Club. He hosted the TV series, “Exploration with Richard Wiese,” and recently shot a series called “Hell on Earth” in Ethiopia with the BBC and Discover Channel. Last spring, HarperCollins released Wiese’s book, Born to Explore; How to be a Backyard Adventurer, designed to motivate kids and the adults who love them to venture into the great outdoors, near and far. A year before that, a popular boy’s book for Christmas was The Dangerous Book for Boys, which taught things like how to tie knots, palm a coin, tan a skin and wrap a package in brown paper and string. The concept was quickly duplicated by another author with The Daring Book for Girls. Wiese’s efforts are more focused, yet he has a grander mission: to get kids off the couch and out from in front of TVs and gaming stations. He real-

ized the need for the book when he took 70 high school students to Antarctica. At one point, the ship came upon a pod of about 50 whales. About a dozen kids never looked at up from their Gameboys. So Wiese wrote the book in hopes of getting kids and teens interested in the real world. It’s a very cool book, and while some chapters (“Chopping Down a Tree,” “Building a Canoe,” “Building a Foxhole Radio”), are advanced, others (“How Not to be a Victim of Insects,” “Avoid Becoming Wildlife Food”) are incredibly important for kids of all ages. While the latter addresses predators like bears, alligators and mountain lions, there’s also a page on dogs. Other chapters cover adventure skills like making a compass, learning to track animals and how to build hammocks and igloos. (I tried the latter with my son last winter after a big snow. We would’ve greatly benefited from these pages.) There’s a chapter on reading the weather through old adages (“Red sky at night…”), and by observing the behavior of worms, ants and dogs. The chapter on eating in the wild has pretty tame suggestions (PB&J sandwiches), but there was a very interesting section on baking and roasting in paper bags that might have been lifted from The Silver Palette Cookbook. Imagine en papillote
al fresco. Born to Explore is like a modern Boy Scout Handbook without the moralistic overtones. Even though my son is young, we could have a lot of fun with this. Although Dangerous had one of the alltime greatest book titles, the concept wasn’t quite borne out with the content. Also, Born to Explore isn’t gender specific like the boys/girls volumes that seem like a bit of a throwback these days. Nonetheless, all these books have their merits: they teach tweens and teens how to be prepared for all sorts of situations that don’t involve handheld digital devices. About 10 years ago, working as an editorial director at an interactive agency in the city, I headed up two enormous content-heavy websites for tween and teen girls called “Being Girl,” sponsored by Procter and Gamble. Yes, there was a lot of content about periods and Tampax, but 80% of the site was advice on everything from BF issues to anorexia to addiction to dating, and on the older girls’ site, drugs and sex (yes, we actually got P&G to agree that a site for teenage girls that didn’t address sex might as well be a homepage with a giant “L” its forehead). Anyway, I spun the idea into a book called Getting it Right the First Time, because I realized after many focus groups, much research and a bit of soul searching, that’s really what adolescents and teens care about. And looking and being cool arise from knowing what to do at any given moment–whether it’s coming face to face with the person who stood you up the night before, or a real snake in the grass.

DAN'S PAPERS, November 6, 2009 Page 32 www.danshamptons.com
Between the combination of tail fins, excessive chrome and two- and three-tone factory paint jobs, those rainbow-colored cars certainly put the shaboom on the highways of America. Pink Caddy convertibles, red and white Ford Crown Vics and aqua – AQUA! – cars were commonplace. The Europeans were more conservative during this period, sticking mainly to darker hues. Did you know that most Rolls Royce aficionados consider the color white on their products to be in bad taste? They think it makes their vehicles look like a “wedding cars,” and, indeed, many older Rollers are rented out for wedding parties – a horrific thing to do to a Roller. Fresh new color combinations are showing up everywhere. The staid British are leading the charge with the MINI Cooper. It has re-introduced the two-tone paint job, with the roof one color and the body another. The new Ford Flex gives buyers the option of a two-tone paint job. I’ve also noticed that the new Asian boxcars are available in what can best be described as “sci-fi hues.” And creative colors are here to stay. Perhaps this newfound rainbow on the highway is an optimistic sign that things are improving. Personally, I still prefer silver.

Perhaps the most important decision people make when buying a car, after deciding on price, make and model, is the color. Is it peer pressure or good or bad color sense that dictates what color car one buys? Color choice seems to be in the eye of the beholder, who is often colorblind. When the Model T Ford first came out in 1909, you could buy it in any color you wanted, as long as the color you wanted was black. In 1982, you could only get a new Delorean sports car in silver stainless steel. Today, one can order a new car in virtually every color imaginable – and some not so imaginable, like pumpkin. In fact, with any new high-line Porsche, you have the option to “color to sample.” If you paid the right amount of money for ANY truly expensive car and had the right connections at the factory level, you could probably get it painted “to sample,” too. But color with caution; painting a car to sample usually hurts its resale value. I have seen some really embarrassing, tasteless, custom factory paint on Porsches. One man’s dream color may be another man’s nightmare. In a recent survey of manufacturer’s car production colors, white came in as number one, displacing silver, which had been the perennial favorite for
years. Silver and white dominate for the obvious reason that many areas of America are sunny and warm year-round, and dark colors absorb heat. Of course, in the Northeast, sun and heat are not big issues, which is why we have a great deal of darker-hued automobiles here. And today, with air conditioning and tinted glass, it really doesn’t matter what color a car is on the outside anyway. That’s more psychological. What does matter is the interior color. If you’ve ever sat down on a sundrenched black leather seat in shorts, you’ll agree. I cringe and my thighs burn when I see a convertible with a black interior. As car buffs know, most racing cars, especially vintage racers, are usually painted in what have come to be called “racing colors.” These colors usually relate to the car’s country of origin, like the famous British Racing Green. Italian race cars are red, German race cars can be silver or white and French race cars are what is commonly called French Blue. American cars are usually a combination of red, white and blue for obvious reasons. This has led to the popularity of racing colors on streetcars. For decades, most Ferraris have been red. Many Jaguars and Range Rovers have been painted green. All British cars are striking in the right shade of British Racing Green. It’s very proper for a royal to be seen driving a Bentley Continental GT coupe in Balmoral Green with a tan hide interior piped in green. Good show. Until the ‘50s, the most popular car color was black. In the ‘50s, perhaps in conjunction with the rock and roll era, all hell broke loose color-wise.

Food / Dining The Gift of Fall: Scallops
Simple Art of Cooking Silvia Lehrer
10-12 large basil leaves cut into julienne Extra basil leaves for garnish 1. Rinse scallops and pat dry with paper towel. Put into a bowl with the lemon and lime juice. Cover and refrigerate for 4-6 hours. 2. Peel red pepper with vegetable peeler, core and remove seeds; rinse and pat dry. Cut pepper into strips then into 1/2-inch dice. Put thinly sliced onions in a bowl of cold water and let soak for 20 minutes. Drain and pat dry in a clean kitchen towel. Place in a mixing bowl with the peppers. 3. When scallops are “cooked” and flesh is opaque, drain excess liquid and add to the onions and peppers. Season with cayenne, salt and basil, and stir to mix with the scallops.
The first Monday of November officially opens the scallop season which allowed our own Peconic Bay scallops to return on November 2. We’ve been lucky to enjoy these smaller-than-a-penny scallops for several seasons now and will continue to enjoy them through this season which should last until March, according to local fishermen. There are 400 species of this bivalve mollusk found throughout the world but only a handful enters the commercial market. Of the five eastern species that come into our markets, the bay scallop is of prime importance to the scallop aficionado. Of the varied species along the Eastern seaboard, including the familiar calico from Florida, it has been documented that none can compare to the Peconic Bay scallop. Because of their pent up demand, this occasionally scarce delicacy is relatively expensive. Our local bay scallop, harvested from clean waters, is sensational raw, making it the perfect choice to make ceviche. When making ceviche with bay scallops, the fish is “cooked” by the citric acids and heightened in flavor with a dash of cayenne and fresh basil. Bay scallops are my choice to use with a quick sauté of carrots, leek and sweet yellow pepper julienne, deglazed with honey and thyme. The colorful dish makes it perfect for a delectable light lunch or supper. BAY SCALLOP SEVICHE WITH BASIL There are versions of seviche all over Latin America where numerous fish are used for this migrant dish. Our own Peconic bay scallops are in season and that is cause for celebration. Serves 4-6 as an appetizer 1 pound bay scallops, tendon removed 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice 1 red bell pepper, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice 1 small red onion, sliced paper thin Dash cayenne 3/4 teaspoon coarse (kosher) salt
4. Transfer to a serving bowl. Ceviche may be completed up to several hours ahead. Refrigerate as necessary; bring to room temperature before serving. Serve with basil garnish. BAY SCALLOPS WITH HONEY AND THYME A colorful julienne of vegetables serves as backdrop for this savory bay scallop treat. Serves 6 2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil 1-2 carrots, scraped, trimmed and cut into julienne 1 leek, trimmed, washed very well and cut into juli-
3 Course Prix Fixe $2500
enne 1 yellow pepper, ribbed, deseeded and cut into julienne Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 pound Bay scallops, tendon removed 2 tablespoons local honey 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves 1/2 cup vegetable, fish or chicken stock
Warm 6 luncheon or salad-size plates in a 200degree oven. 1. Heat oil in a large 12-inch skillet and saute the vegetables for 5-6 minutes until they have a slight crunch. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide evenly on the warm plates. 2. Melt butter in the same skillet until the butter browns slightly. Be careful not to burn the butter. Add the scallops and saute over medium-high heat for 1 1/2 minutes total, turning once. Season with salt and pepper to taste. With a slotted spoon transfer the scallops over the vegetables. 3. Add honey and thyme to the pan and stir to deglaze pan juices. Add stock, salt and freshly ground pepper, bring to a boil and stir to mix. Reduce liquid by one-third. Drizzle sauce over the scallops and serve at once.

Painted gray walls with dungeon-like black veiling and creative dark drapes with hints of monsters and goblins transformed the main dining room, with skeletons and body parts hanging from light fixtures. More than 100 guests dressed in extremely creative costumes danced to the live band, My Favorite Mistake, while keeping an eye on TVs over the bar showing World Series Game 3. When the Yankees won the party really took off. CEO Paul Monte and Venus Yunker, dressed as pirates, greeted partygoers. Best Costume went to five who dressed as a Star Wars contingent. All were awarded a free night stay at the inn. — T.J. Clemente

Arts & Entertainment Art Commentary by Marion Wolberg Weiss
“Seeing Southampton” Entering the Avram Gallery at Stony Brook’s Southampton campus is a bit perplexing at first. We expect to see the usual: arresting, cutting-edge imagery – even conceptual forms – that the Gallery has become known for. (The last show, featuring Milton Glaser’s outstanding graphics, paintings and prints, is a good example.) Instead, we’re confronted by large-scale maps, still eyecatching, to be sure. But the display is not supposed to be art. Or is it? The question is, therefore, when is a map not a map? The answer? We believe the exhibit serves several purposes, one of which is art.
“UNUSUALLY VIVID AND CONVINCING. CHRONICLES THE EARLY LIFE OF THE WOMAN WHO WOULD BECOME PERHAPS THE SINGLE MOST INFLUENTIAL FIGURE IN 20TH-CENTURY FASHION.” –A.O. SCOTT, THE NEW YORK TIMES
“SMART AND SUMPTUOUS! AUDREY TAUTOU IS PHENOMENAL! IT’S A SPECIAL PLEASURE TO WATCH THIS VIBRANT COCO.” –Joe Morgenstern, WALL STREET JOURNAL
Maps, Landscapes One intention of the mapping project is to provide a forum for “investigating issues that affect Southampton’s environment,” including shellfish closures and plover nests, aquifer protection and prime soils, among others. Even so, this critic sees the maps as abstract art. Such an idea is admittedly somewhat unusual, although artist Julie Mehretu refers to aspects of mapping and architecture in her paintings; bird’s-eye views (like the maps in the current show) articulate urban grids, defining the images as fragments. This idea is seen in the map featuring “Color Infrared Imagery,” for example, where red lines fragment space, recalling blood vessels racing through the human body. Various colors also divide space, like in “Prime Soil,” where blue, orange and grey define boundaries. Another map (“Tax Sections”) recalls a Jeff Koons animal with its dark floating shape. Perhaps we’re “seeing things” that aren’t there and dismissing the political, biological and historical purposes of the maps pointed out by Exhibit Coordinator Marc Fasanella. In a strange way, there’s a connection between the mapping exhibit and “American Landscapes” at the Parrish Museum. The former is one method (continued on next page)

Honoring the Artist: Joe Chierchio It’s obvious that this week’s cover artist, Joe Chierchio, has a penchant for local color (both literally and figuratively). He also has a love for yesteryear, as is evident by the cheerful diners, vivid street life and yellow tugboats featured in his recent book, New York Drawings of the Past. Chierchio’s art evokes many influences, starting with urban subjects from the past. His growing up in Brooklyn during the 1940s near the Navy Yard and The Brooklyn Bridge put him in the middle of the action. His love of movies, especially film noir, has impacted his style, where high/low angles and contrasts between shadows and light prevail. Although his work celebrates nostalgia, viewers respond wholeheartedly to it. His Dan’s Papers cover, which features a truck in front of the Sag Harbor movie theater, was selected by readers as a favorite. Q: How does this week’s cover, “Pumpkin Kid,” illustrate your signature subjects, styles themes? A: This work, I think, shows the innocence of children. It’s the joy of being a kid. Children don’t have childhoods like we did. I remember in the 1940s and ‘50s, we would play stickball in the street at night without fear. Q: There’s an innocence in all your paintings. Your current project is a series about Coney Island as it was 50-60 years ago – an homage to more innocent times as well. A: I’m using archival photographs and adding colors, angles and storylines to capture the spirit. They’re taking down rides to build housing, but preserving Nathan’s Hot Dogs and probably iconic rides like the Cyclone and Wonder Wheel. Q: Narrative is essential to your work. Tell us about the storytelling in your art. A: Art is more than pretty pictures. Artists are taking my course at the School of Visual Arts to learn how to put something more into their paintings, like a story. People relate to what’s going on when there’s a story. People relate to people. Q: Who are your heroes of narrative art? A: Norman Rockwell, Edward Hooper, Andrew Wyeth. Q: How about movies as an influence? A: I loved On the Waterfront and To Kill a Mockingbird. Q: I can see why you would like On the Waterfront. Each shot was like a painting. A: Yes. I’ve learned so much from shots: contrast, size relationship, close-ups. Q: Another influence must come from your experience as an advertising art director. A: I learned a lot from advertising that I apply to art. For example, the idea must come first, then the execution. I also learned to create fast. Q: Speaking of creating fast, you said you’re working on a book that you plan to finish this spring. A: Yes, it’s a book about the Hamptons – about the way it was, its small mom-and-pop stores, its diners – with stories and pictures. Q: What’s your worldview about what you paint, regardless of influences, nostalgia and storytelling? A: I don’t like to show anything the way it is. I paint what I feel. –Marion Wolberg Weiss Chierchio’s work can be seen at Sambuca’s Restaurant in New York (212-787-5656) and online at www.joechierchio.com

of defining landscape using a map format; the visual arts provide another way to explicate the environment. Like the maps’ bird’s-eye views, Jane Freilicher’s “Grey Day” is seen from an aerial perspective, evoking a unique mood that articulates the brush strokes. Conversely, a worm’s-eye view defines a setting by Alex Katz (“Untitled”) as well as Fairfield Porter’s “Backyard Southampton,” both providing an unrealistic effect. Like the maps at the Avram Gallery, space is divided up in Jennifer Bartlett’s “At Sands Point,” where brush strokes again define the subject and style. The weeping willow tree in the foreground helps to articulate the space as well. Sheridan Lord’s “Landscape, Autumn” is also fragmented, with foregrounded lines or grids similar to Bartlett’s work in that regard. Jane Wilson’s “Trees at Mecox” presents an opposite effect, where there is no division between objects as spatial areas blend together. The result is much more abstract than in the works of Bartlett and Lord. “Seeing Southampton” is on view at the Avram Gallery on the campus of Stony Brook, Southampton. Call 631-632-5161 for hours. “American Landscapes” is on view at the Parrish Museum until Nov. 29. Call 631-283-2118.

Fiesta! at Guild Hall By Tiffany Razzano Celebrating Latino culture, Guild Hall will host Fiesta!, a free day of family fun for all ages, on Sunday, Nov. 8 from 1-5:30 p.m. This is the first time the venue is hosting the event since it began its renovation of the John Drew Theater last year. Typically, Fiesta! is held each spring, but with the recent completion of the theater, Guild Hall decided the fall would be a great time to once again celebrate the Latin American heritage that is so prevalent on the East End. “It’s not just for the Latin American community out here,” said Melissa Erb, associate for public programming at Guild Hall. “It’s a great way to bring the entire community together.” The day will kick off with a gallery talk – in both Spanish and English – with artists whose work has been recently acquired by the museum, between 1 and 2 p.m. Featured artists include Linda Alpern, Judith Boucher, Stephanie Brody Lederman, Philippe Cheng, Jennifer Cross, Peter Dayton, Dorothy Frankel, David Gamble, Eunice Golden, John Hardy, William King, Cynthia Knott, Rima Mardoyan, Paton Miller, Bastienne Schmidt, Joan Semmel, and Darius Yektai. Next, dancers from New York City’s Calpulli Mexican Dance Company will take the new stage in the John Drew Theater between 2 and 3 p.m. The group, which culls its name from the Nahuatl word that refers to Aztec clans that were organized by their trade, is commit-
ted to educational programming and performances touting Mexican dance, music and theatre. The performers dress in full native costume and take members from the audience on stage to learn the dances to make for a truly interactive afternoon, Erb said. Art teachers and students from local schools will volunteer their time for the children’s arts and craft workshop between 3 and 4 p.m. Children will get a hands on look at traditional Latin American crafts, such as Mexican ornaments and Chilean rainsticks. For older children and teenagers, as well as adults, the day will be rounded out by a showcase of local musicians sponsored by Crossroads Music. Mr. No-Shame, a group that features musicians from different ethnic backgrounds, will perform their eclectic sound, which mixes rock music with jazz, Latin music and funk. Raul Cardenas, a songwriter from Ecuador will also perform, as will Duo Sentimenal: Rafael y Juan, who are from Colombia and part of the group Escola De Samba Boom. “We’re trying to tap into a wide range of audiences,” Erb said. “It’s a really full day and we’re doing a lot of different things.” Guild Hall is expecting several hundred people to turn out for the event, and already they’re hoping to expand it to a week-long event next year, she added. For more information about Fiesta! and other upcoming events, go to guildhall.org.

DAN'S PAPERS, November 6, 2009 Page 39 www.danshamptons.com
Letters AN ODE ON VETERAN’S DAY Dear Dan’s Papers, The day my son was born was one of the happiest days of my life. At that very moment I realized he would be someone very special. At the age of 18, he made a decision to become a United States Marine. He is now serving in Afghanistan. I’d ask every American to wear red on Fridays. It’s a military thing, until all the troops are home. Whether you agree or disagree with this war, right or wrong, they’re all over there fighting for you. Audrey Freiermuth, A very proud and loving mom of a U.S. Marine Manorville, NY (Editor’s note: Ms. Freiermuth submitted the photo of her son, above, and a poem she wrote about him after seeing him off for another tour of duty. Excerpts of that poem are printed below.) A Silent Hero My son is a hero you just don’t know He left our home a long time ago As I stood by the door with tears in my eyes With a hug and a kiss we said our goodbyes His head turned back and he looked at me Mom don’t cry – you’ve raised a man, you see I love you – I’ll miss you – I’ll be okay Because of 9/11 there is no other way. It’s my duty, my son said to me The Marine Corps is where I need to be. You don’t know his name – you don’t see his face He’s the silent hero that’s keeping you safe He gave up his freedom – best years of his life He did it for what he thought was right He did this for every American to be free My son is a hero that I don’t see So as you safely sit at home tonight Give thanks to all who were willing to fight Not just for those who are fighting this war But for every soldier who has fought before Courage and bravery is what they had from the start To fight for our freedom in is in each and every heart God please give them the strength they need They are all silent heroes, I do believe. VERY SERIOUS Dear Dan, Silently, and with little warning, nearly one in nine women living on Long Island will become a statistic. It is nearly impossible to reside here and not have your life affected in some way by this insidious dis-
e-mail Dan at email@example.com
ease. Having breast cancer, or knowing someone who does, has become an inherent risk of residing here. Breast cancer knows no boundaries. It does not discriminate. Its pain and misery is abundant, and its wrath shows no signs of relenting. Although October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are already all too familiar with its devastation to unsuspecting women and their families. Confirmation was established nearly a decade ago, that of the 62 counties comprising New York State, both Nassau and Suffolk have nearly the highest breast cancer rates in the state and in the nation. This distinction is frightening and comes as no surprise. Despite what we are led to believe by officials who have studied this life-threatening problem, we must keep in mind that our environment is far from safe. Environmental concerns have always been an elusive problem on Long Island. We have many; yet, their toxicity on the human body has been seriously underplayed. No one is willing to come forth and state the connection between the environment and our excessive rates of cancer. Although research is still continuing into environmental causes, there is currently a shift in methodology beginning to look at personal lifestyle choices that include smoking and diet to explain why breast cancer rates on Long Island are so high. Most women stricken with this horrible disease believe strongly that the environment, not their personal lifestyle, played a significant role in the development of their disease. Downplaying environmental factors and refocusing on personal lifestyle choices is a dangerously poor substitute to explain Long Island’s health concerns. Until we isolate environmental catalysts that are causing human cells to proliferate at an uncontrolled rate, women across the island will continue to become faceless statistics. We need answers. We cannot be hoodwinked into thinking that Long Island women are choosing lifestyles that are significantly different than the rest of the nation. Knowledge is the key to conquering this disease, not excuses. Jason E. Hill Ridge, New York 11961 The many studies do not support any reason why Long Island is a carcinogen. – DR BIG QUESTIONS Dear Dan, Your article “EH Town Supervisor Bill McGintee Resigns” in the October 9 issue leaves some big questions, unanswered. If he is “accepting responsibility for his mistakes,” how is he allowed to just walk away
from the problems that he has caused? Where is the grand jury investigation at this time? In McGintee’s resignation letter of October 5, his closing lines are “...and I also want to thank the District Attorney for allowing me to resolve this matter.” Nothing is “resolved” in this situation! McGintee quits, and we the taxpayers will pay for his misdeeds.... by an increase in taxes! Please keep us informed as to whether the DA is investigating our ex-supervisor, McGintee. Thank you. Jane Maynard East Hampton Via e-mail Roger. Over and out. – DR ALLEGIANCE Dear Dan, The late Republican State Assembly minority leader Perry Duryea would be disappointed but understanding why “NY State Assemblyman Thiele Turns A Corner” (T. J. Clemente – October 16) changed his party allegiance from Republican to Independent. Each year the Senate majority leader and Assembly Speaker give out several hundred million dollars worth of member items (state pork) to their loyal followers, who vote as directed. Republican Senators and Assembly members (who are the minority in their respective chambers) get table scraps. The majority leaders routinely prevent any bills proposed by members of the minority party in their respective chambers from ever coming out of committee for a full vote. Minority members get the short end of the stick when it comes to office budgets, space, staffing and mailings versus those members in the majority. When will “to the majority goes the spoils” philosophy finally end? Real bipartisan legislative reforms would include minority party members of either chamber being allowed to propose legislation out of committee, permitting a full vote on any proposed legislation along with comparable office budgets, space, staffing and mailings as members of the majority. When will there be a law passed in Albany requiring all members of the State Legislature holding a second job to report information about income, hours worked and any potential conflicts of interest between employers benefiting from favorable legislation or pork barrel member item spending? Sincerely, Larry Penner Great Neck, NY Via e-mail Our state system is a disgrace. – DR
Police Blotter Drunk in The Street A man was standing drunk in the middle of the street in East Hampton. When police approached, they noticed a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath. The man then became unsteady on his feet and fainted. After helping the man, the officer escorted him to his squad car. Fraud A hotel in Montauk reported that approximately $7,000 worth of unauthorized charges were racked up against the hotel. None of the charges were racked up from the mini-bar or from adult movies. Break In A man in Southampton reported to police that
somebody broke into his home and stole $5,000 worth of electronic and computer equipment. Police have opened up a full investigation into the theft. Another Break In A woman in East Hampton reported to police that somebody stole an antique gold ring with ruby diamonds and a gold ring with a sapphire and two diamonds. The estimated cost of the jewelry is valued at $6,600. An investigation is underway. Weirdo A man in Montauk reported to police that another man entered his home that he did not know while he was there. The owner then asked the man
if he could be helped, to which he responded with, “No.” The man then left the premises. When police arrived, they could not find the trespasser. Excessive Window Tint A man in Water Mill pulled over for having a window tint on his car that was not legal. When police pulled the man over, they found out that he was driving without a driver’s license. Egg Bomb A woman in Southampton reported to police that her entire house was egged and covered with toilet paper. Rotten kids! By David Lion Rattiner
