Gazillion Tons If you walked the beaches this week you know an enormous wedge of sand, 10 feet high at the back, a hundred yards wide from dune to ocean and 60 miles long, got washed out to sea by last week’s hurricane. In total this is a gazillion tons of sand. A month before the hurricane, the wealthy who own oceanfront homes between Wainscott and Water Mill, a distance of six miles, got together to create a special tax district which they would fund themselves with $30 million. This would bolster the beaches in front of their homes with more sand, the experts told them. That ought to do the job, they said. Now, after the hurricane, $30 million looks like only a start. -- DR

Several Hamptons residents participated in “Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together,” a telethon that aired last week. Matt Lauer hosted the event, Jon Bon Jovi performed “Living on a Prayer” and Billy Joel played “Miami 2017” and “Under the Boardwalk.” Bill Joel The telethon raised $23 million in relief funds. Many East Enders who also call Manhattan home sought shelter— and electricity— at hotels during Hurricane Sandy. Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria reportedly stayed at the Lowell Hotel, Hilaria & Alec Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick checked into the Plaza Athénée, and Anna Wintour and Kelly Ripa settled in at The Mark. Baldwin also visited a shelter at New York University, his alma mater, and chatted with students evacuated from their dorms and apartments during the hurricane. It was business as usual during last week’s superstorm for Southampton resident Howard Stern, whose radio show continued without interruption. The shock jock taunted the hurricane—and show employees who stayed home when Sirius XM said the company was closed. Mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly called South Fork neighbor Rudy Giuliani for his opinion on going ahead with the New York City Marathon days after Hurricane Sandy. Media mayhem followed the announcement that the race would continue, after Mayor Bloomberg which the mayor reversed his decision, despite his belief that it would help the city move forward. Revlon chairman Ronald Lauder was among the many who suffered property damage during Hurricane Sandy. His Wainscott beachfront cottage was destroyed when waves breached a wall of sandbags.

“Along with the New York Subway System, Hamptons Subway is the only underground transit system in the State of New York.”

The H amptons Subway Newsletter By DAn rattiner

Week of November 9 – 15, 2012 Riders this past week: 4,212 Rider miles this past week: 74,932   DOWN IN THE TUBE Joy Behar was in the third car from the front of a subway train going from East Hampton to Amagansett last Thursday at 2 p.m. A whole crowd of people were happily talking to her. SUBWAY & SANDY Hamptons Subway suffered no damage from Hurricane Sandy. Perhaps this was because much of the subway, although underground, is inland, far from the water. Perhaps it was because Hurricane Sandy gave the East End just a glancing blow as it landed in New Jersey, so the big flooding and outages were elsewhere. On the other hand, Hamptons Subway DID suffer both floods and power outages. Both were caused by an error made by an employee at our company headquarters building on Ponquogue Avenue in Hampton Bays. At about 1 p.m. Monday, just as the hurricane was about

to hit, one of our janitors, Clyde Hoskins, who has since been fired, washed out his mop in the slop sink in the basement of that building and then left the basement without remembering to turn off the water. The water soon overflowed the sink and then filled the basement, ultimately causing the electrical circuits to short out from the rising waters. In addition, the rising waters went down the hollow pipes which contain the electrical lines and down to the Hampton Bays platform, which soon flooded, leading to further floods in all the tunnels and other platforms in the system from Montauk to Westhampton Beach. Needless to say, as dusk fell over the East End, the flooding had shorted out all the electrical service on the system, leaving numerous trains of passengers stranded between stations. Fortunately, our intrepid subway employees, trained in what to do in the event of a power blackout and flood while the subway trains are occupied, kept all the passengers safely in the cars for the next two hours so nobody would get electrocuted by stepping on the third rail. They entertained the passengers with banjos, which are stowed under the end seats in every car,

singing barbershop favorites as they have been trained to do in emergency drills conducted at company headquarters once every month. Out in Montauk at our subway yards, which remained dry, the two diesel-powered subway cars were mobilized and sent out to, one by one, hook up with the stranded subway trains and tow them to safety at the nearest stations, where the passengers were led through the hip-deep waters to the escalators (turned off, of course) and safety. It was a magnificent thing the subway employees did. Finally, at 6 p.m., the team of divers sent down to the basement of the headquarters building succeeded in turning off the faucet. After that, the Hamptons Subway, helped by repairmen flown in from Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, Florida, Colorado, Virginia and New Hampshire, were able to make the necessary repairs and get the subway up and back running normally by 8 a.m. on Wednesday. CHRISTMAS TREE This year the subway system will, for the first time, have a Christmas tree to rival in size the one at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan. A giant spruce, 55 feet high and currently growing in a farmer’s meadow in Canada, will be chainsawed down and trucked to our Southampton Station—our busiest station—and erected on the subway platform on November 15.

Pressed For Time A woman in Hampton Bays last week was caught red-handed after she attempted to siphon gasoline out of a truck. The woman said she needed the gasoline because she heard that there was a gas shortage and didn’t want to wait on a line. Shelter Island Old Man McGumbus, 105 years old and former World War II hand-to-hand combat specialist, was arrested last week for urinating into the Starbucks coffee cup of a hipster who was sitting at a table inside the establishment. Police were called when McGumbus, after urinating, slapped the man across the face. He was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon because both of his hands are registered as lethal weapons. Bad Dog A large Great Dane in Bridgehampton drew the attention of authorities after it walked into the middle of Main Street and fell asleep on its back. The animal held up traffic for nearly an hour. Impound Yard A man in East Hampton was arrested after he broke into the police impound yard. He claimed he entered the yard because he wished to retrieve the wheel spacers from his Jeep. He was released on $250 bail. 25 Grams A man in Montauk was pulled over by police who found him to be in possession of 25 grams of marijuana. Police arrested the man and processed him at headquarters. When police explained to the man that marijuana was illegal and that he was being charged, he responded by saying, “Yeah, well, you know, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.” Show Me Your Papers Police are reminding all residents to doublecheck the credentials of anybody who asks to enter your home and claims that they are a LIPA crew member. All utility workers are required to have photo identification; if a person cannot produce this identification when demanding to enter your home, you should call police.

Romney Wins He Wins the Cup Count in East Hampton & We’ll Drink to That By Dan Rattiner


an’s Papers goes to the printer on Tuesday around 6 p.m., so, since the polls close at 9, we cannot tell you who won the presidential election in this issue with any great accuracy. Of course, we could PRETEND that we knew and take a chance (see DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN), but it did occur to us that by the time you read this on Thursday it would not be like, oh boy, I’ve been waiting to find out who our president is. Thank God for Dan’s Papers. What we can tell you at this juncture, however, is that Mitt Romney handily defeated Barack Obama in the “cup” race held every four years at the Monogram Shop on Newtown Lane in East Hampton. This race went on for as long as the two candidates ran for president because, once the battle began, the owner of the Monogram Shop immediately began selling frosted plastic drinking cups with either the name ROMNEY on them in red (RYAN was added later), or the names OBAMA BIDEN on them in blue. People would come in, buy some of one or the other of the cups and the owner would chalk up how many were sold and put the totals in a notebook and on a sign in the window. Four years ago, OBAMA beat McCAIN at the Monogram Shop. Four years before that, BUSH beat KERRY and these totals were dutifully reported in this newspaper. The Monogram Shop, as an indicator of which way the wind is blowing, has never been wrong. I thought the most interesting way to present the current cup purchase results (they are $3 a cup), is to look at the different time periods

to see how the cup sales were going in those intervals. By August 24, Romney was ahead 55% to 45%. A total of 4,578 cups were sold after the cups came in on May 23. A count was made of the cups sold between August 24 and September 9, a few days after the Democratic Convention. One would have expected, in this period, for Obama to get a bounce in the cup polls, as the DNC was at the forefront of everyone’s mind. During this period, Romney cups accounted for 54% of the cup sales and Obama cups, 46%, a minor swing in Obama’s favor when compared to the time between May 23 and August 24. The next time we looked in the window was October 3. Following Obama’s triumphant convention speech and the many days that followed, one might have expected to see a rise in the number of Obama cups sold during this period. But the survey between September 9 and October 3 did not show it. In this interval, East Hamptonites were not impressed. It was still Romney 54% and Obama 46% in the cup department. What was the deal here with Romney leading with such a large margin? On the surface it seemed hard to explain, but then if you thought about it, it didn’t. Who buys these cups anyway? It’s not likely going to be the locals whose houses have a little bit of this and a little bit of that. It’s more likely to be the wealthy summer visitors. Everything in their summer house is “just so.” If one of the house- and-garden magazines were to come in to take photos of these interiors, the hosts would just have to straighten out a pillow or two. They are ready. The (Continued on page 20)

Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, helmed by that East Hampton domestic goddess, announced last week that it will significantly reduce its magazine business and cut publishing jobs. Everyday Food will no longer print monthly, and the company will try to sell its Whole Living health magazine. The move will save an estimated $33 – $35 million annually. Sag Harbor’s Donna Karan spoke about her new book, Stephan Weiss: Connecting the Dots, at the Designers & Books Fair held in New York. The book celebrates her late husband and complements his artwork displayed at his former West Village studio.

The harbor rises over the seawall as the surge begins.

Harbor Rising

A Small Story About Hurricane Sandy and Three Mile Harbor By Dan Rattiner


n 1986, my home on Three Mile Harbor Road burned to the ground. We were not home at the time, thank God. My kids were in school, my wife off shopping. I will, for as long as I live, remember the exact conversation I had when a fireman called me at work in Bridgehampton. “There’s a fire at your house. You need to come here.” “Is it bad?” “Yes.” The Springs Fire Department fought it bravely for hours, but it was no use. My wife and I watched. She cried. I was too stunned. Flames were shooting out the windows. In the end, the roof collapsed and only a few walls stood. There is nothing like watching your life burning up. I would not give up on this property, however. When I first saw it, I fell in love with it. I’d

often stop, as did lots of people, to watch the sun set over the boats in front of it there on Three Mile Harbor Road. In 1975, a “For Sale” sign had appeared in front of the house there. I immediately bought it for the asking price. The house was perched on the side of the hill. On the other side of the road, the boats, 36 of them in numbered slips, sat in the water in a long, neat row facing a long, narrow public park. It was 30 feet wide. Benches on its lawn faced the water. Off in the distance, across the harbor, was the Northwest Woods. On sunny days, year-round, the sun set over Northwest, and the house on the side of the hill was the last piece of property in the area that received it. I’d drive up the street toward home to see this colorful sunset seemingly blessing the house with sunshine in a landscape already darkening. Coming inside, I’d notice the rays of the sunset, having bounced off the harbor, now splaying

in interesting patterns on ceilings of the rooms inside. I had offers for this property while the old house lay in smoldering ruin. But I turned them all down. I would rebuild. And I did. Which brings us to the present day, 26 years later, on Monday, October 29, 2012, the day of the arrival of Hurricane Sandy. Everyone has a story to tell about this hurricane. Some horrendous, some not. This is mine. On that Monday morning, I began to realize I had seriously miscalculated what was about to happen. Up until that time, I had my eye on the ball, which was the eye of this hurricane heading our way from somewhere off the coast of North Carolina. I could watch it on the Weather Channel on TV. People talked about the great size of this storm, but in prior storms, (Continued on page 22)

Serving Time on the Reservation By james k. phillips


t’s coming up on a year that I’ve been working for the Shinnecock Senior Nutrition Program, serving lunches for the elders at the Family Preservation Center, washing dishes and setting tables. Shakespeare wrote that all the world’s a stage. If that’s so, then Shinnecock is like theater, television and the movies all rolled into one. It’s “As the Rez Turns,” and there are as many different stories and plots as there are people. In the senior lunch plotline, the lovely Mrs. E is the star of the show; she does the actual serving and entertaining, while Mrs. T, the director, Mr. B, who picks up and delivers lunches to the homebound, and I are her co-stars. But it’s Mrs.

E who commands all of our attention, and who we all listen to, whether we want to or not, as we try to stay on her good side…although it’s anyone’s guess where that might be at any time on any given day. It’s a wonderful show, and every episode deserves an award. The elders adore and love Mrs. E. They eagerly wait for her entrance from the kitchen, with a bon mot, chastising phrase or wry comment. When Mrs. E gives you one of her mischievous, dimpled smiles, it’s impossible to feel anything other than special and happy. Even guest speakers and presenters fall for her charms. It’s like Brooke Astor, Joan Rivers, Diana Ross and everyone’s favorite aunt wrapped up in one person, working a room. As for me, I’m doing this gig in an effort

to reverse whatever bad karma I might have incurred over the last fifty-some years of living, and to show my gratitude for having been born lucky enough to be Shinnecock. I call it the blessed curse. It ain’t easy sometimes, but it ain’t all that bad, either. I’ve traveled the world and have seen how things are “out there”—and as far as I can tell, we have it pretty damn good. We own our land and homes outright; fish, clam, crab, hunt and enjoy a pretty good standard of living. A friend says we live like millionaires without the trappings—or traps—and I agree. Sure, we don’t have the material wealth much of the population around us covets, but we do have a sense of community and belonging that can only come from being a (Cont’d on next page)

wealthy are for Romney. And they are just so much more likely to buy cups. I mean—plastic cups for $3 EACH? Where we locals come from it’s $3 a SLEEVE. Okay, time to move along. The next peek in the window came October 16. Romney had wiped the floor with Obama in the first debate on October 3. The results in this interval showed it. It was 67% for Romney and 33% for Obama. With the totals since the beginning at 5,278 cups for Romney and 4,308 for Obama, it was fair to say that Obama winning this at the end, with the time left, was probably not going to happen. Now we come to our next peek, which was on November 1. The two debates that Obama had won (by smaller margins) had taken place. Perhaps Obama won at least this interval. Well, he didn’t. Obama got whacked again. It was a total triumph for Romney during the period of October 16 to November 1. It was Romney’s 77% to Obama’s 23%. Well, there you have it. Romney taking the lead early, then pulling away and then skyrocketing ahead to Election Day even after the last two debates. There were more than 10,000 cups sold. Nearly 6,000 of them, all together, say ROMNEY on them here in the Hamptons. Had the Monogram Shop bought equal amounts of them? If they did, after Election Day they will have an overstock sale of OBAMA cups. But if Obama has won the actual election, they can sell the cups for years to come. Either way, it’s a win-win for The Monogram Shop.

Right on Red? What We Earthlings Have Learned So Far About Driving on Mars By Dan Rattiner


hey can tell you it is true, and it is, but it is a really hard concept to grasp. We live on a giant sphere that is circling through the vacuum of space around the sun. The people on the other side of this sphere are upside down to us but they manage. They walk around. We walk around. All of us are, feet first, on the earth, being pulled by gravity. Circling around the Earth is the moon. We’ve been there. With rocket ships, it is not that far away. Also, as it happens, it seems to have once been a part of the Earth that later got ripped off, fashioned into a ball and caused to circle around the Earth, so it comes as no real surprise that the dirt on the moon is similar to the dirt from the Earth. Aware when I was growing up about all this, I also knew that because absolutely everything

else was so far away, it was very unlikely that I would ever get off the Earth. But here on Earth there was a lot to see. So I made it a priority to visit as many parts of it as I could over the years just to see what was what. I’ve been on the underside. I’ve been to the southern tip of Africa. I’ve been to Japan, to the Caribbean. The cultures are pretty different everywhere, but in many ways we all have a lot in common. I mention all this because when all is said and done, I didn’t think too much about it when we lowered the rover Curiosity down onto the planet Mars. My frame of reference says that Mars might as well be a distant star. It’s something that can be appreciated from afar, even marveled at. It also seemed very likely to me that since it took nearly eight months for our rover to get to Mars, Mars might be very different from our Earth and moon in composition. It could also be true that Mars

supports other and more interesting life forms. We’ve all seen the science fiction movies. Who knows what goes on in a place that was born and raised totally separate from the Earth for not just billions but trillions of years from a time when both these planets and six more were thrown off from our sun? Then on the radio the other morning, I heard a man from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, which built Curiosity and manages the mission, describe how Curiosity analyzes the dirt it scoops up and, of particular interest, how it gets rid of it by opening a hatch on the bottom so the dirt can drop out. “How does Curiosity clean his insides so when the next scoop is brought in, the material does not get mixed in with the residue of what was in there before?” the interviewer asked. “Surely there is something of the old left over.” Curiosity can shiver, the (Continued on page 24)

A Soldier’s Story By robert sforza


ormer New State Assemblyman John Behan’s life could be compared to that of a literary hero. Rife with adventure, war, humility, friendship, solidarity and tragedy. Only his story is true. And through every chapter, he’s maintained an innate relationship with his birthplace. A lifelong resident of the South Fork, Behan has spent time out of the country for both leisure and battle, and despite his many travels, there is no other place he would call home. “Growing up I never thought I was better than anyone else,” the accomplished Behan recalls. “I think that is why I made friends so easily.” It was this boyhood knack for making friends

that helped him survive the war in Vietnam and transition into political life after returning to the United States. His story begins in Hampton Bays, where he would pass his days playing along the Shinnecock Canal. His mother owned a restaurant on the waterway and his father was a boatman. “Mom always ran the restaurant and Dad always ran boats,” Behan says, noting that he himself was attracted to the water. The canal he loved so much as a boy in Hampton Bays eventually became the catalyst for his family leaving the hamlet. Behan was only eight years old when his four-year-old brother, Joshua, drowned there. “He fell off the dock and hit his head on a boat,” a somber Behan vividly recalls. “We all searched and

searched. A fisherman found him.” The loss of a son was too much for his mother to take. “It broke all of our hearts, especially my mother’s—Joshua was just a sweetheart to everybody,” Behan says, interrupting himself. “And my mother couldn’t bear it. She sold her restaurant and we decided to move to Montauk,” he remembers. “We couldn’t stay in Hampton Bays.” He loved Montauk, especially in the summertime. Behan would spend his days riding horses, working on boats with his dad or hanging out and swimming at the beach by the Sloppy Tuna. “I’d look forward to the summer and the new people that would come into town, especially the (Continued on page 24)

Harbor (Continued from page 19) The other part will surge along the southern shore of Long Island to also pile up against Manhattan. We expect this surge when it meets back up to be about 10 feet high. It could breach the walls of lower Manhattan and enter the subways. A disaster. It occurred to me as I contemplated the fate of Manhattan, that the weatherman had left out a middle part. This water would also surge between the North Fork and South Fork and come right up Peconic Bay into, among other places, Three Mile Harbor. The surge would reach its height at midnight. But midnight was our high tide. And it coincided with a full moon. This was incredible news. Well, it was now too late to evacuate. The wind was screaming. Trees were coming down everywhere. And soon thereafter, at 4 p.m., all the power went out leaving us all alone in the howling storm. At 6 p.m., just before sunset, I looked out from our living room to see the harbor begin spilling over the sea wall and onto the grass of the park. I had never seen it do this before. It was raining sideways. The trees on our property were swaying, and against all common sense, I again went out onto our front deck to briefly look down at it. It was oddly warm out. Skies were grey. It was time for sunset, but there wasn’t any. The few boats tied in their slips were now separated from shore (Continued on page 26) Dan Rattiner

no matter how great the size, the most damage done was right where it crossed over land for the first time. By Monday morning, however, it was clear the storm would not hit the Hamptons, it would hit the New Jersey shore, or perhaps northern Delaware. When it hit there, surely it would not be much of anything here. My wife and I have a place in the city. We could have gone there. But, on that morning, we made our final decision that we’d be better off overlooking the harbor in East Hampton for the duration. We could be here to watch over the house. There could be flooding rains. There could be high winds, or a tree down. Boat, backed up to the seawall. The boat is now way offshore. We should be here. I knew there was something else, something I should describe the mathematics of this house at this time. It will become completely unexpected at hand. “With this air view, you can see this huge relevant for the rest of this story, because we never thought it would be possible for the swirl of clouds circling counterclockwise 150 water in Three Mile Harbor to reach the house. miles around the eye of the storm slowly The new house I built to replace the old here moving northward,” pointing to it on a large sits at an elevation of 17 feet.

When this storm the grass of the park to the seawall, is 74 feet. I comes north to hit New Jersey, this surge of know this because the survey I had made when water also comes north and will be driven I was planning the new house showed this. We from east to west into Montauk Point. It will split there. One part will surge north around felt we would be okay with this. And so, on Monday morning, we were the side of the lighthouse and head west into watching a weather channel on TV and suddenly Long Island Sound to pile up against Manhattan.

Deer Management Plan May Finally Be Here By joan baum


t’s been 70 years since Disney’s Bambi endeared itself to audiences worldwide, though most people would have been stumped in a recent New York Times crossword puzzle when asked about a Bambi villain (his Aunt Ena). Which is as much to say that no one exactly remembers the movie or knows the 1923 Austrian novel by Felix Salten that prompted it, Bambi: A Life in the Woods. For sure, though, Bambi has become the watchword of antihunting advocates. Though hunting is one recognized way of attempting to control the exploding deer population on the East End, as elsewhere, the shout “Bambi killer” easily informs debates about how best to go about culling herds, even as data show a dramatic decrease in East Hampton in the number of hunters holding permits for either guns or bows. They’re also being killed in greater numbers on the road (“predation by automobile”), hardly a “compassionate” or “effective” short- or longterm solution, East Hampton Town Councilman Dominick Stanzione points out.

than hunting, the councilman notes that the “non-lethal” category includes deer that die by starvation, auto accidents or disease—hardly desirable methods, and costly ones. Gathering accurate data—as of now, anecdote and approximation rule—is an important part of the DMWG proposal. The new plan calls for a review of the kinds of land now used for hunting, with an eye toward modification and coordination; for the establishment of a hunters’ contact list; and for the dissemination of guidelines as to how hunters can donate meat to local food pantries. Other proposed considerations would affect hunters who use bows (for bow hunters, the season runs from October 1 to December 1,

while the gun season extends into January— and gun hunters are picked by lottery). Current rules call for a bow hunter to be at least 500 feet from a house; this plan would reduce that distance to 250 feet. Another “critical component” has to do with getting an accurate count of herds. This determination would be effected, says Stanzione, by fly-overs to estimate the population, year by year, for three years ($50K has already been allocated for Infra-red Aerial Deer Counting). The count would include tagged deer undergoing birth control. These deer are off-limits to hunters, but as one hunter points out, if birth control means chemicals, one wouldn’t want to have these in a food supply anyway.

The situation is certainly not new on the East End, but became critical enough by February 2010 that the councilman called a Deer Summit to focus on the problem, which led to the formation of a Deer Management Working Group (DMWG), a task force of 35 individuals representing federal, state, town, village, county, public and private entities. The result of their work is a position paper, “A Proposal for Management of the White-tailed Deer Population in East Hampton Town,” a draft of which is dated October 18, 2012. The plan reflects DMWG’s inquiry into best practices along the Eastern seaboard, and will be the subject of a public hearing scheduled for December 6. If passed by the state, having been vetted through the State Environmental Quality Review Act, the plan would be the first comprehensive and coordinated attempt to reconcile disparate points of view and to recommend action to reduce the deer population to “sustainable levels.” Although hunting remains a significant part of the plan, Stanzione points to a schematic that shows how DMWG sees results five years hence. Lines marked “lethal” and “non-lethal,” now widely separated, are shown converging into narrow center parallels, meaning that “lethal” goes way down while “non-lethal” goes way up. Although “non-lethal” sounds promising to some because it would embrace options other

Mars (Continued from page 21) official said. He shivers and shakes for quite some time. All the loose particles then come off his insides and out the bottom. The interviewer said this reminded him of how you clean a frying pan when you are out camping. You rub dirt on it, shake it, wipe it, then hit the frying pan on a rock to get everything off. What was even more interesting were the results of the analysis. The dirt so far scooped up is very similar to the dirt you find here on Earth in places where there has been relatively recent volcanic activity. It’s very similar to what’s on the Mauna Kea volcano in Hawaii. It’s not that different at all. How extraordinary! Of course, this is only one part of this place. Mars is not so much smaller than Earth, so

there is a lot more of it to explore, just as there would be a lot more to explore the first time that something from afar touched down on Earth. On Mars, there are mountains, former riverbeds, cliffs, dry lake beds. We’ve seen them, having peered down from orbiters with cameras circling around Mars for a few decades. And Curiosity is moving, slowly, to explore as much as he can. The point where Curiosity was set down (lowered by cables from a hovering spacecraft) is a place where the ground isn’t level but isn’t very steep, either. It was chosen because it is not far, just 1,300 feet, from a place where different kinds of Mars landscapes come together. From where it came down, Curiosity is going to that place. Curiosity moves very slowly—less than



a tenth of a mile an hour—on zigzag tire treads. We can control him from Earth. Using a computer keyboard, we can get him to turn, then move forward, then stop. Curiosity’s camera is linked to a computer. But then we have a second computer mounted on a stalk. Scientists on earth see with the one on board. If one camera thinks it’s okay to go and the other doesn’t, the scientists look at the two cameras to see why. Then they might try sending him off somewhere else. I want you to consider this from a Martian’s point of view. This thing is a mass of wires, frame, aluminum and titanium, and has an arm sticking up with a gripper on the end which not only has the ability to see but also can drill, grasp and put stuff into its maw. It can also drop off what it scooped when it’s done with it. It resembles a giant scorpion stinger. Curiosity has all sorts of other things that it uses on Mars. It has a laser beam it can fire at rocks to break them up from as far away as 23 feet. It has a hammering drill; it has the aforementioned scoop, a telescope, numerous cameras, sensors to measure pressure changes, wind speeds, radiation and humidity. And of course it is nuclear powered. It can run around by itself for years, unless an angry Martian comes along and wrecks it, which it could because other than the laser and drill, Curiosity can’t defend itself and can’t even explain what it is doing there. As for me, my wife and I are considering a vacation for the month of January. New Zealand? Been there. Mexico? Been there. South America? Been there. Paris? London? Moscow? Cape Town? Been there, been there, been there, been there. What haven’t we seen? Dammit, there’s Mars.

pretty girls,” Behan reflects with a laugh. Like any boy from Montauk, he attended East Hampton High School, where he played football, basketball and baseball. He was elected Senior Class President in 1963, a feat he relishes and attributes it to his character. “Kids from Montauk, Springs and Amagansett were treated different at school because we weren’t from East Hampton,” Behan says, though he never personally experienced this high-school prejudice. “I think I was treated well because I played sports—I was good at them and wasn’t much of a student,” he admits. Indeed, Behan gained his peers’ respect through his amiable personality and the hours he put into his extracurricular activities. “I’d get out of practice and it would be dark, and then I’d have to hitchhike my way home to Montauk,” he says with a hint of nostalgia. After high school his world grew as he ventured out of Montauk. He traveled the ancient Mediterranean and countries such as Italy, France, Spain, Greece and Turkey before sailing onto the Caribbean. But Behan came of age when Vietnam was an inevitability. His boots touched down in the war-torn country on December 24, 1965, just as many Americans were settling down for their Christmas Eve ham. “I was a little depressed when I first got there,” Behan says, remembering (Continued on page 28)

Some of the holes are cleanly punched, and so the intention is clear, while others have bits of paper from the punch out still attached to the holes. The officials have decided that if these bits of paper, called chads, are hanging, which means they are barely still attached then the vote counts, if they are swinging like doors on a hinge the vote counts, if they are tri-chads which means they are still attached on three sides but not on a fourth, they count, and if they are just swollen out but still attached on all four sides—they are called pregnant chads—then they do not count. The officials have declared their policy to be the “Sunshine Rule.” If you can see daylight when you hold it up to the light, then the citizen gets to have his vote counted. *** Some of the write-in votes have gone astray.

Harbor (Continued from page 22) by water. At that moment, a pickup truck pulled off the road and parked by the curb in front of one of the boats. Two men in waders emerged from the truck, carrying planks of wood. They splashed through the few feet of water on the lawn, boarded their boat, a commercial fishing boat, and were soon nailing other pieces of wood to the tall pilings, extending them upward four more feet. If the surge was higher than the pilings, the extra wood could still hold the boat in place. The job done, the men splashed back through the grass and drove away. Half an hour later, with the wind still screaming, I ventured out again to our front deck. I wanted to see the harbor before night fell. The boat and the few others remaining

were now rocking 10 feet from the edge of the water on the grass. The harbor was on the move. In the darkness of the rest of the evening, we read by flashlight and listened to a batterypowered radio. There was nothing to see out our window. The usually bright streetlights were dark. You could just barely see the shadows of the boats rolling in the chop. I thought about what we might do if the water reached the house. We could abandon it, and scramble further up to the top of the hill where a retired New York City Legislator had in recent years built a beautiful home. He was almost never there, though, and so we’d be trespassers if we got in. Maybe it would be locked. Well, maybe it would be better if we just sat in our

car, parked in the lot in back of our house. I imagined the car, lifted up, rocking back and forth. “If it gets really bad,” I said to my wife, “we could retreat up to the second floor.” I was referring to our house. At 11:30 p.m. I put on my raincoat. “Don’t do that,” my wife said. New York City’s underground systems had been breached. The water was pouring in. The surge had not been 10 feet. It had been more than 12 feet. A record. And it was still climbing. I thought more about this. I sat back down. And then, suddenly, just after midnight, right at the peak of our high tide, the howling winds outside suddenly died. It also stopped raining. It was quite amazing. I turned off the radio for a moment. It was deadly silent out there. “I have to see where the water is,” I said, grabbing a flashlight. And I was out the door and down the driveway. It had not reached the road, thank God. I walked across it. But then, just a few feet beyond it, almost all the way up to the road, was the harbor, all black and still, filling the park. In the moonlight, I could see it was flat as a mirror. Off in the distance, the fishing boats floated offshore. At that moment, the pickup truck I had seen before came along, slowed, turned 90° toward the water, stopped and shined its headlights on the fishing boat. The back end of the truck stuck out a bit into the road parked that way. But it was okay. It sat there awhile, its radio playing. So I walked over to the passenger’s window. “Your boat?” I asked. “Nope. My brother’s.” “Ever see anything like this?” “Never. We’re here to report back.” The two men were Bonackers, among the many descendants of the original settlers who came to this place in the 17th century, and they still live nearby. It was an extraordinary encounter. It was dark, quiet. Our house was behind us. The waters of the harbor, inky black, still, right at our feet. The radio in the car played a country western song. “What do you think is going to happen?” I asked. I thought they would know. “I think this is it,” one of them said. “Tide’s high. Wind is down. All this water, pushed up, now no reason to stay here. It’s all over.” I considered it. Trillions of tons of the sea, shoved in against us, now about to fall suddenly away. After awhile, I returned to the house and soon my wife and I went upstairs to sleep. At 7 a.m. I woke up, opened the bedroom curtains and looked out. Below us, in bright sunlight, the harbor was back behind the seawall where it was supposed to be, 74 feet from our window. I came back to bed and wearily and happily climbed in under the covers. The electricity came back on two days later. By this time, I had learned of the great catastrophe that had struck the city and the Jersey shore. We were lucky out here. This was just my small story.

Futurehampton By anthony haden-guest


he Hamptons stood outside of the flow of time. I could feel that right away. It was the mid ’70s, I had moved to Manhattan from London and my summer weekends were given over to exploring them, one by one. Southampton was Type-A fellows with pink flushes and lawn-green pants and women with hair the hue and texture of unraveled twine. I remember fancying that I was being a bit of a hit at a beach club dinner when one such flaxen goddess brayed—it was directed at her goddaughter, my date, but I felt ears fluttering room-wide—“Sure talks a lot, don’t he? I hope he’s good in the sack.” A kind of there-ness mattered. As when a New York magazine fashion editor noted approvingly of a model who was up for a Hamptons issue that his Topsiders were scuffed, meaning that he was just right for a milieu where relaxations included tennis, bicycle polo, after perhaps a cocktail or three, not too much sea swimming because of that sullen undertow, and little boating—apart from a few zealots like the late Dennis Oppenheim, who kept a sleek arterialred craft off Bridgehampton—but much tracking of sand into houses, partying and occasional groggy slumbering on sofas, indeed all the cheerful scruffiness of beachside life. Writers and artists tended to lurk in East Hampton, Springs, Sag Harbor. And George Plimpton’s shindigs were convincing proof that The Literary Life—and how fusty the phrase seems now, as if translated from the French—not only existed, but could be fun. As for Montauk, well, that was a remote enclave practically as far away as Edinburgh is from London, where that paste gem of a movie, Cocaine Cowboys,

was shot on Andy Warhol’s compound; that was where Peter Beard’s compound overlooks the best boulder beach I know (I collect rocks). And framing these variegated Hamptons was land were farmers actually grew crops, an ocean upon which fishermen, weathered folk who politely ignored the Summer People, actually went fishing. It was very real, even the delusions, kind of Yankee Fellini, and I was knocked out by it. Then time did start to move in the Hamptons. The Eurotrash who were surging into Manhattan—and no commentary of a personal nature here, please—were fleeing the kidnapper, the kneecapper or simply the taxman and the detumescence of Swinging London, but they sure knew a good thing when they saw it and what they saw in the Hamptons was an unravaged Cote d’Azur, Costa del Sol, Costa Smeralda at a smidgen of the price. They pounced, with some taking a few minor precautions of the kind to which they had grown accustomed back home—the installation of bulletproof glass, say—so whenever a particularly choice property disappeared into unknown hands, whichever fallen foreign autocrat or felonious fat cat was in the news would make the list of suspects. The Euros, though, being mostly laid-back, fitted into the Hamptons pretty sleekly—one started a winery, another a horse farm—but then American New Money picked up on the island’s charms and time in the Hamptons began to go into overdrive. In 1979 the financier Barry Trupin bought the place built for Henry DuPont on Meadow Lane for $700,000, renamed it Dragon’s Head and much to the ineffectual rage of many neighbors— (Continued on page 30)

Behan (Continued from page 24) his days as a young soldier. “Vietnam was different. I had no idea of what to expect.” Time crawled and then it flew for Corporal Behan. Then, came May 23, 1965. He had recently joined the 9th Marine Corps and was immediately caught in the fray. “It was a strange day for me, we didn’t know the trouble we’d be in,” Behan recalls. “I was very eager to get involved, even after seeing my guys getting killed, wounded, mangled….This was the first big fire fight.” He tells of being in a field of tall grass around Hill 55 and spotting two Vietcong who took off running. Behan remembers a bamboo fence and then an explosion. “I hit the ground, started crawling on my belly and then stopped because I thought there may be another mine nearby.”

Weissbach Construction

Behan never passed out or lost consciousness, but the trauma racked his ears like an explosion of steam whistles. “I had no imagination of what might have physically happened to me,” he says, remembering hearing a soldier yelling, “I don’t know. We need a chopper. Corporal Behan lost both his legs.” In the 30 seconds he chased those two VC soldiers, his life was changed forever, but Behan’s focus was not on himself. “All I could think about was my mother and how she would handle this. I remember how she felt after Joshua, and now her other son has lost his legs,” Behan recollects. “They flew me to Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines where my mother was waiting. She looked dirty and tired—looked like she came by

horseback,” Behan recalls. So he told her, “You look worse than I do,” and they both laughed and cried. “That’s what kept me alive.” After leaving the Philippines, he returned to the U.S., where he spent the first 10 months at a Navy hospital in Philadelphia before going home to Montauk. But it wasn’t in Behan’s nature to indulge in self-pity and seclude himself at the Island’s far eastern end. He opened a liquor store, Behan’s Liquor Wharf, which he owned for eight years before becoming restless with the desire to do more with his life. “I was desperately bored in my own business,” Behan concedes. “There are only so many times I could put price tags on bottles and bottles on shelves. But being from Montauk, you were a cop, a volunteer fireman or a shop owner. That’s when the political life appealed to me.”

Behan’s political career is perhaps his greatest claim to fame. He became the East Hampton Town Tax Assessor in 1976. “Not the most popular job,” Behan chuckles. “But it was my first elected position.” He enjoyed his time as Assessor, but the following November he was elected to the New York Assembly, where he served the Second District from 1978 to 1995. Then, at the request of Governor George Pataki, Behan worked as the Director of the New York State Division of Veteran Affairs before retiring from public life in 1998. Despite the tough demands of a life in politics, “I actively enjoyed it a great deal,” Behan says. “I made new friends and I got things done—I was responsible for East Hampton, Southampton, Riverhead, Southold and parts of Brookhaven. It was a lot to look after.” Yet Behan was unfazed by his often thankless and difficult duties. “I spent a lot of time on the road. I’ve lost track of the miles and cars I went through, but I understood it was part of the job,” he says. “It was the first time I had that combat feeling that I was doing enough.” The public life was a perfect fit for Behan’s penchant for making new friends, proactively getting things done and fighting for his beliefs. His journey from a boy playing on the Shinnecock Canal to a young man severely wounded in battle, from a shop owner running a business in Montauk to a political figure representing the East End and fighting for the men and women who fight for our country, epitomizes what it means to be a true, proud East Ender.

Neighbor By judy S. klinghoffer

Reality fans have probably caught Sims on “The Rachel Zoe Project,” and “Project Accessory,” a “Project Runway” spinoff. One of Sims’ pieces of advice for aspiring models is to spend more of their fashionista budget on accessories than costly wardrobe pieces. Two years ago, Sims launched her own jewelry line, Grayce by Molly Sims, crediting her love of jewelry to her mom’s sharing her “passion for estate auctions, flea markets and consignment stores…I would work my outfits around my jewelry pieces.” In September 2011, Sims walked down the aisle with Scott Stuber, producer of such hits as Couples Retreat and Ted, in a Napa Valley wedding attended by friends and many of her “Las Vegas” co-stars. Always a stylista, Sims decided to dress her bridesmaids in mismatched but coordinated dresses designed by Elizabeth Kennedy, an idea that bridesmaids everywhere probably applauded like mad. This past June, Sims and Stuber welcomed Brooks Alan Stuber into their lives, and in her usual style, Sims was honest about the joys of motherhood and the trials of shedding 50 pounds of baby weight. Working out with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, whose clients include Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow helps, but Sims admitted on “The Today Show” that, “the pressure is part of the problem because we feel like we need to look like a 20-year-old or someone in a magazine who just stepped out three weeks later’s not realistic.” Even before momhood, the star was involved with charities that benefit children. Population Services International Five and Alive program addresses the health needs of children five and under. Sims also participates in Operation Smile, and she has held fundraisers for baby2baby, an Los Angeles charity that brings gently used baby gear to families in need. At a recent event for the charity, Sims helped pass out hundreds of thousands of Huggies at the “Every Little Bottom: Diapers and Donuts” event. No stranger to the Hamptons, Sims bought a modest home in the East End years ago, but now that baby Brooks has made his debut, Sims and her producer husband have purchased a $5 million Wainscott home with a professional chef’s kitchen and a wine cellar. Despite all these accoutrements of fame, Sims remains a down home Kentucky girl with strong family ties. As she told, “My mom still FedExes me a red velvet cake she makes from scratch every birthday!”


an you say Molly Sims without saying $30 million dollar bikini? The former “Las Vegas” star, new mom of Brooks Alan Stuber, and owner of a Wainscott waterview home, is known to many for barely wearing a $30 million diamond bikini in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. The outspoken Kentuckian has never had a problem being frank about the topic in an interview. “Honey, when they pulled those three pieces out of the box, I went into hot sweats! Of course, it barely covered me!” she commented on trendhunter. com. The bikini, all 150 sparkly karats of it, essentially looks like two earrings and a pendant. Sims wasn’t the only one who broke out in a sweat over the diamond bikini. Tiger Woods separately purchased the pricey swimwear after his divorce was finalized, The Bluegrass State seems to be a fertile ground for the famous. Sims, born in Murray, Kentucky shares her home state with celebrities such as Johnny Depp, George Clooney, and Hunger Games stars Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence. Sims is the youngest of two, and enjoyed a fairly normal high school career, graduating and heading off to college at prestigious Vanderbilt University. Her original intention was a career in law, but higher education wasn’t in Sims’ future for long. The former Delta Delta Delta sorority girl left Vanderbilt at the age of 19 to begin a career in modeling, signing with Next Models. According to Chickapedia (which is Wikipedia for those with an overabundance of testosterone) this was a career move celebrated by men everywhere as Sims joined the ranks of tall blonde sexy college dropouts. Just a few years later, Sims hit the public eye in a big way, splashed across the pages of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition of 1999. Somehow, Sims managed to project that blend of model sexiness and All-American girl who would actually talk to you at a party. Old Navy picked up on Sims’ ability to be simultaneously likable and gorgeous and tapped her to appear in a series of TV spots. Sims touted the virtues of various wardrobe staples, miniskirts, track jackets, jeans, ending with the tagline “You gotta get this look!” in the tone of voice of a girlfriend tagging along on a mall outing. About the same time Sims was singing the budget-friendly praises of Old Navy togs, she was also hosting MTV’s “House of Style” stepping into the peep toe pumps of original host Cindy Crawford. “House of Style,” hit the air in ’89, a fashion news show at the very forefront of reality TV. Yes, in the days before “Survivor”

Molly Sims ACTRESS

Even before momhood the star was involved in charities that benefit children. and “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” getting a look at the lives of supermodels, from backstage chaos to eating disorders, was a groundbreaking move for MTV. Supermodels were just starting to become super-personalities, and Sims got a chance to surf that wave into a number of other television appearances, notably a leading role in “Las Vegas,” an NBC drama about the fictitious Montecito Resort and Casino. In “Las Vegas,” Sims played Delinda Deline, the beautiful, brainy daughter of James Caan’s character, Ed Deline, head of operations at Montecito. In contrast to the comings and goings of other female cast members, Sims’ Delinda was front and center for all five seasons of “Las Vegas,” using the show’s hiatus to appear in a number of films such as Yes Man, playing Jim Carrey’s ex. Most recently, Sims did a turn on “Royal Pains,” the medical drama set right here on the East End, showing off her acting chops as a wheelchair-bound fashion consultant with a mysterious ailment.

Guest (Continued from page 27) he had blown off the zoning regs—had it transformed into a faux chateau, complete with a sizeable movie theater and a giant sharkfilled aquarium. Well, Trupin went bankrupt and sold, and the place was picked up by Francesco Galesi, who I knew and liked. Were there still sharks in Galesi’s aquarium or is this a false memory? Galesi eventually sold as well, and Dragon’s Head was torn down in 2009. It hadn’t been a freak, however. It had been a harbinger, an omen. The first time I took a Jitney to the Hamptons it was, as I recall, an eight-seater tan mini-van, and one time I took a seaplane and waded ashore, but mostly it was a drive. And an easy drive. But I remember standing on that same Meadow Lane sometime in the early noughties, waiting as the traffic roared by. And roared by and roared by, and I was thinking this shouldn’t be happening here. But life goes on. Reality TV came to the Hamptons, as did “Royal Pains,” and there were art fairs in the Hamptons this year three weekends running, with stands stuffed to the

gills, and with local galleries dealing bluechippy art. I escaped to a party for It’s A Dog’s World, a book about Lucky Diamond, the “animal most photographed with celebrities,” amongst whom were Kim Kardashian, John Travolta, Bill Clinton, Snoop Dogg and Sarah Palin. On hand were dog sculptures made from dried flowers and promotional material for petURNity, mosaic urns for your dead pet, and I joined a group that included Rachelle Oatman, who paints humanized dogs, and pretty well. The subject of nail polish for dogs came up. I asked a thin blonde in white who was carrying a small white dog with a blue bow in a large snakeskin handbag whether she would paint her animal’s nails. Were there episodic TV shows, art fairs and fancy dog parties in the Hamptons 20 years ago? I doubt it. Will there be in 20 years? Possibly. And will there be interminable traffic jams? I doubt it.

The Parrish Art Museum announced the retirement of longtime Deputy Director Anke tom Dieck Jackson and the appointment of her successor, Dr. Scott Howe. Jackson has been part of he museum staff since 1977. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Ralph and Ricky Lauren and the Ricky Lauren Family Foundation, are donating $1 million to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City to help with the immediate needs of New Yorkers as well as long-term relief efforts. The Polo Ralph Lauren Foundation will also be donating $1 million to relief efforts that will be divided amongst the Robin Hood Relief Fund, the American Red Cross and the Disaster Relief Fund. Although some fans at a New Orleans concert were upset by Madonna’s endorsement of Barack Obama a few weeks ago, the pop icon didn’t let the booing bother her as she replied: “Seriously, I don’t care who you vote for. Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote!

Party for a Good Cause Next Thursday Night! By ellen dioguardi


t’s hard to get away from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Even those with power and no damage to their homes have been driving past local landscapes severely scarred by the storm, waiting on gas lines for hours, sheltering friends and relatives till they can return home or simply watching the news. The path back to normal is a bit longer this time around and many of our neighbors need some help. Dan’s Papers Best of the Best Party has long been scheduled for Thursday, November 15. Pre-Sandy planning included more bands than ever before and the first opportunity for the general public to attend the party, which in the past was reserved strictly for winners of the Best of the Best contest. With hors d’oeuvres by Mazzu Caterers, and an open wine-tasting bar stocked by several of the most popular East End wineries, a cash bar and bands galore, this party is certainly a “do not miss” on anyone’s social calendar. What do you do with a platform like this during a time of need? You lend a helping hand of course. With this in mind, Dan’s Papers Best of the Best celebration is being turned into an opportunity for anyone attending to help make life a bit easier for many of our neighbors. Guests to the Best of the Best Party are encouraged to bring nonperishable items for donation. These will be collected by Dan’s Papers and distributed via our delivery team to food pantries across the East End. We


are also happy to accept gift cards to local supermarkets, gas stations, department stores, etc. This way the Best of the Best celebration can also be the best kind of party during what for many is not the best of times.

This is already a hard time of the year to provide for the many families who make regular use of local food pantries, and Hurricane Sandy added to this challenge. Not only will more families be looking for aide but also, with Thanksgiving approaching, many local pantries try to supply items so their clients can celebrate a traditional holiday meal. Evelyn Ramunno, Director of the Sag Harbor Food Pantry, agrees that this winter will be difficult. “Pantries will need all kinds of dinner items, stuffing mix, canned sweet potatoes, canned peas, anything goes,” she says. “Stuff to bake with, sugar, cinnamon, pie crust mix, etcetera.” Any of these items or whatever you have on

hand that is nonperishable can be brought to the Best of the Best Party. Along with collecting for the local food pantries, Dan’s Papers is teaming up with Gurney’s Inn and some Montauk residents to raise funds for the daughters of Edith Wright of Montauk. Wright died when she was apparently swept out to sea during Hurricane Sandy on October 29. Plans for a dedicated fundraiser to be held at Gurney’s are under way and information on this event should be available at the Best of the Best party. With the Kiwanis Club of East Hampton setting up an account for the girls at Suffolk County National Bank, the full donation amounts will go directly to benefit her daughters, who also lost their father several years ago. Direct donations will be accepted at the Dan’s Papers Best of the Best party, and there will also be a 50/50 raffle held during the event to raise additional funds. Anyone wishing to make donations without attending either the Dan’s Papers Best of the Best Party or the soon-to-be-announced fundraiser can write a check to the Kiwanis Club of East Hampton NY East End foundation. In the memo write: Edith Wright Fund and send to: Kiwanis Club of East P.O. Box 1902 East Hampton, NY 11937

Reality Check on the East End By David lion Rattiner

Since I got back from my trip Africa a few weeks ago, DAVID LION’S to all I’ve been thinking about is how lucky I am to be from a first-world country. Appreciating basic living standards was something I learned very quickly while I was there. And if there was any fear that I would forget the appreciation I learned on Mount Kilimanjaro, Hurricane Sandy has provided a sobering reminder. My personal situation was nothing of much


consequence, I will admit. After I lost power, the biggest personal issue I faced was eating all the ice cream in my freezer so it wouldn’t go to waste. Still, when I got back to work on the first day that our office had power, it seemed like the world was very different. Everybody had a story, a photo, something personal to share about Sandy’s impact on their lives. But when I finally got the Internet back, it was amazing to me how other parts of the country were going on with life as usual. I was reading CNN and was completely fascinated by the fact that people in, say, Florida didn’t have anything to worry about other than the latest sports scores and how the presidential race was going. Of course, as we all know, it was quite another

It puts into perspective how the things you think will always be there can one day disappear in a swift blow. story here. I have never seen gas lines in the Hamptons. I’ve never personally experienced a gas shortage, and luckily I haven’t needed to worry much about using my car since I live and work in Southampton. But I know I am in the minority. Maybe by the time you are reading this, gas stations are all open, and cars are not lined up for nearly a mile down County Road 39. And maybe you are like me, amazed at how quickly gas stations can run out of gasoline, how an interruption in delivery schedules for even a day or two can mean a sign goes up reading CLOSED NO GAS. It puts into perspective how the things that you think will always be there can one day disappear in a swift blow. I believe the term is reality check. I think all of us on the East End have had one of those. It’s made me appreciate even more how lucky we are here. And it’s made me think. I used to believe, some time ago, that people who talked about global warming and advocated the idea that none of us should drive cars and instead bike and walk had a point. But the truth is that gas is vital to our everyday lives. Still, look at the extreme weather we’ve seen, like the storm that just came through, and it kind of makes you wonder if the earth is trying to strike back at us for burning too many things on this planet. I hope that is not the case. But even if it is, all of us will still fill up. Visit daily to read David’s latest blog entries.

This Week’s Cover Artist: Pamela Topham By Marion Wolberg Weiss


cover like this week’s by Pamela Topham comes at a good time. What with the storm and the lack of electricity, we need a cheerful image to revive us. Topham’s tapestries are not only cheerful but life-affirming. What’s more, the familiar ponds, fields and gardens are especially comforting: this is home for us, a place that’s not only sensual but authentic as well. Topham has her feet firmly planted on the ground, and we walk in her footsteps when we experience her work. Tell us about the cover. It’s perfect for this time of year. The cover is called “Accabonac Harbor, Autumn Light.” I did it a couple of years ago, from the view of Andy Sabin’s house. It’s part of a whole series—drawings, prints, tapestry. I work from a pencil drawing, which is more detailed, although I take photographs, too. But photographs are not as detailed.

I started out majoring in costume design, thus the interest in fabric. Some artists go from tapestry to art. So in some series or works, do you use a different process? I also work from pencil sketches and photographs (which provide information). Then

Topham bases her tapestries on pencil drawings and photographs. She combines the sketches and photographs to make a drawing.

I combine the sketches and the photographs and make a drawing from this. The recent Box Art Auction for the East End Hospice had a piece of mine from this cover series. What are you involved with now? My current series has six works from Sagaponack: Sag Pond; Peter’s Pond Beach; a flower field, Sag Pond from Bridge Lane; and White’s Farm. That land has been in the family for 50 years. It’s owned by my daughter’s grandparents. Where have you shown recently? I know your work is seen all over the country. People can then appreciate our landscape. My work has been at the San Jose Textile Museum and at Weavers’ Southwest. Closer by, I showed at Greenport’s South Street Gallery. I’m now at Brecknock Hall in Greenport. It is

a maritime theme show, and so I have one of my water pieces there and one from my boat series. They were both on the covers of Dan’s Papers in the past. What’s next for you? I’m used to doing small works. I’m ready to work on something bigger, like big topsail schooners. A sail is a beautiful sculptural form. You are also going out of the country. Yes, to the Czech Republic. I have been there before, and I don’t know how to get around. Maybe hike or take a bus. I want to do work showing the landscape out of the city. Who has the best tapestry museum here in America? The Textile Museum in Washington, the Met. How about in Taos? There’s where the western influence is. It has a certain style, and it doesn’t depart. How about your own style? I went from art to tapestry. I started out majoring in costume design, thus the interest in fabric. Some artists go from tapestry to art. What else influenced your going into tapestry? A trip to Central America and then coming back here and taking a class in tapestry at Guild Hall. I see you are very connected to this area. No mater where you go, home is right here. You are right. Pamela Topham’s work can be seen on her website,

How I Got My Farmer Groove Back The return to my agrarian roots has not been swift but it smacks of inevitability. I grew up on a farm in North Otto, New York. North Otto is north of Otto and Otto is a bend in the “crick.” My mother’s generation was the last to work our property as a dairy farm. She married a “townie’ who loved the country. I wasn’t allowed to learn how to milk a cow because they wanted me to go to college. But I was allowed to work my ass off moving hay or whatever else needed moving. We raised chickens and beef and way too many green beans. My mom swore off maple syruping so we made the switch to Aunt Jemima (bleck!) but we still hunted for leeks (ramps), blackberries, wild asparagus and elderberries. After a move to Long Island with a family of my own, I was a locavore before that term entered the lexicon. I can’t bear to eat the things that other people consider to be eggs and asparagus. When a friend got into baking her own breads I started selling my pies with her at the Hayground Farmers Market. The next summer I made jam for Serene Green Farm Stand in Noyac from all of their leftover fruits. I started filling in for the managers of the Sag Harbor Farmers Market whenever they had to be away. I got to talking to farmers…a lot. Late

Recapping the Fear of Getting Stuck Off-Island By sally flynn

Well, Hurricane Sandy certainly reminded us all who’s boss…A huge tree went down by the school, one of the grand old maples that was grand when I went to school. Trees and branches flung all over the place, lots of people lost their lawn furniture, and lots of people got new lawn furniture, courtesy of the storm. 

There might be zombies or vampires in Greenport who cruise ferry lines. Best to be on the lookout. The tides made the ferries inaccessible, because you couldn’t even see the gate that lines you up with the ferry. Taking a ferry during the storm would not have been a leap of faith, but rather a plunge of faith....One of the biggest fears here is to be stuck off-Island. Everybody gets back from the Commons and Tanger well ahead of storms. You make the last two stops at the IGA and liquor store and then it’s back home to hunker down.  Many years ago, I missed the last ferry and got stuck off-Island. I had to spend the night all alone, but at least I was first in line for the

6 a.m. boat. I didn’t have the money for a motel, so I had to sleep in the car. It was late and no food places were open. It’s just six hours, I told myself. Who can’t survive six hours?  During the first hour I read with the cabin light. But that’s a poor light to read by so I gave up after a half hour. It was autumn and I was getting cold. I had a wool wrap, so I wrapped that around my legs, turned on the car and ran the heater for a while. During the second hour, I cleaned out my glove compartment and as much as I could reach on the floors behind me. That was productive, I thought, I needed to do that anyway. French fries can get rock-hard with age. I also found McDonald’s Monopoly pieces and a Happy Meal toy of Ursula, the bad witch from Little Mermaid. I put her on the dashboard. She was evil, but at least now I had someone to talk to.  The third hour I worried about using up my battery to run the heater, so I drove the car around the ferry waiting circle a few times, always on the alert, even in the middle of the night, that some one might sneak into the line and get ahead of me. Silly, because so what if I’m the second car on the boat? The only real advantage to being first on the boat is that you’re placed front and center, so you get to imagine that you’re driving the boat. I realized once that my imagination was getting away from me when I began hitting my brakes to slow the boat down as we approached the dock. The 4 to 5 a.m. hour was actually about three hours long. Time slows down when you’re

All aboard!

waiting and cold. I pulled some old beach towels out of the back seat—they were stiff and smelly, but I wrapped them around me just the same. I closed my eyes, but you really can’t sleep in those circumstances, plus there might be zombies or vampires in Greenport who cruise ferry lines. Best to be on the lookout. At 5 a.m., I knew the end was near. I found some makeup in my purse and freshened up in the rearview mirror. I’m not sure why I put on makeup at that time. I think I was thinking of the ferrymen. Bad enough to have to be at work at 6 a.m., seeing me without makeup can turn straight men gay.  The morning light framed the ferry as it crossed the silver tipped waves. Finally, the end of a long night. The pleasure of leaving the mainland behind and getting back on-Island never fades.

Putting It in Perspective For the first time in 43 years, the ING New York City Marathon was cancelled. Mayor Michael Bloomberg and New York Road Runners officials initially proceeded with plans to host the world’s biggest marathon. It would be a way to unify the city, lift spirits and celebrate the accomplishments of so many who pounded the pavement for months—or even years—in preparation. That’s how it had been for over four decades. That was Mayor Giuliani’s reasoning for hosting it in 2001, two months after the September 11 attacks. What soon became clear, however, is that the marathon would do the exact opposite of what it intended. Instead of uniting a city with its 26.2 mile course that weaves through the five boroughs, as it always has in the past, the marathon became a source of division. What had become a veritable November block party with two million–plus spectators was pegged as an unnecessary drain on vital resources that could be better allocated to hurricane victims. After much public outcry at the intention to go ahead with the event, the marathon was called off. There was palpable disappointment but a universal understanding of the reasoning. And

Parrish Art Museum to Kick Off Opening Weekend!

Once Docked in Greenport, Tall Ship Sinks off North Carolina

G. Horsburgh

NORTH CAROLINA: The HMS Bounty, a replica 18th-century ship that visited Greenport for the tall ships festival over Memorial Day weekend, sank off the coast of North Carolina on Oct. 29 as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Of the 16 member crew, 14 were rescued in a daring effort by the U.S. Coast Guard. Claudene Christian, whose relative sailed on the original HMS Bounty, died. The search for Captain Robin Walbridge was called off last Friday.

As seen is Greenport this summer

The replica HMS Bounty was built for the 1962 Marlon Brando film Mutiny on the Bounty. The film tells the story of Fletcher Christian, Claudene Christian’s great-great-great-great-great grandfather, and the mutiny he led against the captain of the original HMAV Bounty in 1789. Walbridge was a seasoned captain who had been with the ship for 17 years. Though the surviving crew members have all decided not to talk about the ship’s sinking, it is believed that the boat lost power and started to take on water late Sunday as it was rounding Cape Hatteras in North Carolina. The Bounty was attempting to sail to Florida.

Central Park Receives Largest Gift Ever

NEW YORK: Hedge-fund manager John Paulson has donated $100 million to the Central Park Conservancy. It is the largest gift ever given to the famed Manhattan oasis and is believed to be the most amount of money ever donated to a U.S. park. The gift is one of many philanthropic endeavors for the seasonal Southampton resident, who also donated $5 million to Southampton Hospital to build the Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department. With the money, the park will be able to fund numerous capital improvement projects and add to its endowment.

FEMA Aid Available to those Impacted by Sandy LONG ISLAND: On Oct. 30, the Federal Emergency Management Agency released a statement summarizing the type of aid available to New Yorkers impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

Drink in the whole North Fork!

So much to see and do this weekend!

Waters Crest Wines to Sip with Chips... By debbie slevin


“I was a volunteer fireman and spent time at Ground Zero. After thate xperience, I decided it was time to take the leap.” Crazy good! Water’s Crest received the award for Dan’s Best of the Best in 2011 for their riesling and their cabernet has won multiple times. They have a large and active wine club geared to serious wine drinkers, with 90% of his stock sold through the tasting room and club. His wines are featured at Tom Schaudel’s restaurants—Jewel, Amano, Cool Fish, and Allure. “Their food is terrific,” says Waters, “and Tom has such an experienced wine palate—he probably tastes 3,000 wines a year….He has sold over 1,000 bottles of our wines in Nassau alone.”

But it is not just the wine that makes Jim Waters an interesting guy. He is a huge proponent of the Long Island wine industry itself and is deeply immersed in the politics of the region. He is an active member of the Long Island Wine Council, serving as treasurer and is involved with the planning for the 40th Anniversary celebration coming in the summer of 2013. “It is the central voice for the region,” he says. “Right now we have a very good governor who realizes the importance of agriculture. There is great communication between the Farm Bureau upstate and the local community. They are trying to draw people to the state to spend money here and keep it here.” Waters points out that “agriculture is the second largest revenue generator for the state, next to Wall Street.” But even a serious wine guy can have some fun. To mix things up a little, he recently presented a nontraditional pairing of local items. “Sips and Chips,” an unusual combination of local North Fork potato chips and some of Waters’ special vintages was a big success. “It was a positively addictive combination,” says taster Susan Sunshine, a New Jersey resident who was enjoying a day in wine country. “Food and wine is very suggestive and everybody’s palate is a little different,” says Waters. “I ask my chefs to use local ingredients” when they offer

pairings. “I spent three and a half months in France and this is the closest thing to it…you have all the freshest things. ‘Terroir’ is about everything in the micro-climate and system: what we grow and what we do. Everything on the North Fork is farm-to-table or caught fresh.” And cooperation benefits everyone. This autumn, Waters Crest is featuring local craft beers including selections from Greenport Brewery. There will be a joint tasting on November 17 at Montauk Brewing Company’s new tasting room for beers and Waters Crest wines, and during December, four wineries (Waters Crest, Sannino Belavita, Sparkling Point, and Winemaker Studios) are getting together to sponsor weekend holiday tastings. Waters is always looking outside his small storefront window at the big picture. “People are coming globally these days,” he says, “specifically because of articles they have read. There are a lot of new hotels and B&B’s opening up—good lodging, good restaurants! Our season now extends to about 10 months.” And he loves working with the other businesses. “There is the greatest group of people in this industry.” Waters Crest Winery, 22355 County Road 48, Cutchogue. 631-734-5065

on’t blink when you’re driving down Route 48 in Cutchogue or you might miss Waters Crest Winery and that would be a damned shame. Tucked into a small storefront in a tiny industrial-looking facility is Jim Waters’ passion project. In 2,000 square feet he does just about everything the big guys do. Waters was a home winemaker for many years but joined the professional ranks in 2001. “I made the leap from the corporate world after 9/11,” he says. “I was a volunteer fireman and spent time at Ground Zero and decided life was too precious….When I came home after that experience, I decided it was time to take the leap.” He opened the tasting room in 2003. Although he had traveled extensively with his wife and visited many vineyards, and worked a few harvest seasons, “I didn’t want to be a grower,” he says. “We were the first negotiants on the island,” purchasing grapes for his own wine from other growers. “No one was doing it when we started. Everyone thought we were crazy!”

The East End Black Film Festival is Back! By joan baum

We are thrilled that the East End Black Film Festival (EEBFF) will be part of the inauguration of our new building in Water Mill,” says Parrish Director Terrie Sultan. The Parrish has hosted the festival before, but this year, EEBFF’s seventh, marks “the first time in our state-of-the-art Lichtenstein Theater. Brenda Simmons and her team always put together a diverse and provocative program that draws a large and enthusiastic audience from throughout the community,” Sultan adds. Simmons is the chair of the African American Museum and Center for Excellence (AAMEE) in Southampton, which sponsors the festival. Carol Spencer, the owner of Diaspora Books, which specializes in black literature, says that EEBFF is an “extremely important” event because of the large black population on the East End. Many local people “are descended from The Great Migration.” (The Great Migration was the movement of six million African Americans out of the South that went on intermittently from 1910-1970.) Simmons notes that it will be beneficial for young African Americans to experience and know more about the Harlem Renaissance, the Civil Rights Movement, Malcolm X, the struggles, the injustice, and the endurance and tenacity of black people. The festival is a good way “to catch up on major films produced, and written for and about our people, and especially about our rich history.” And, she adds,

by Arthur Miller Directed by Murphy Davis

Who is the Hamptons hardest working celebrity – films, TV, the Oscars -- and why does he think he should run for Mayor of New York?


Available now at bookstores everywhere!

“let’s not overlook the benefit to all audiences to share on an intellectual and emotional level, films that are educational, informative, and controversial, but reveal the heart and soul and real concerns.” Simmons is particularly excited by the New York premiere of Hoodwinked by Janks Morton, the founder and CEO of iYAGO, an indie multimedia production company. Morton was voted best black film director in 2007. Hoodwinked is a kind of sequel to Morton’s award-winning What Black Men Think, but it focuses on how the media, reporting statistics, often distort facts and play into stereotypes. Is the public being “hoodwinked” by the way numbers can misrepresent truths? Let the blinders come off, as they do in Morton’s film. Called “docu-logs,” Morton’s films are typically followed by hour-long Q&A sessions. He has a wide following, Simmons notes, having traveled and lectured around the world, and is expected to draw a crowd. Morton has explained his rationale for becoming a filmmaker as a desire “to promote positive stories about Blacks.” As he has written, “For over four-hundred years, the majority society has used many tools to reinforce a message that the peoples of African descent are less-than, not-equal-to or not-good enough. In this modern era of information, the media, government and special interests use statistics to further promote the message of black inferiority. What troubles me most, is that we as a people have internalized the misinformation, embraced the

myths, and perpetuated the stereotypes, sadly reinforcing a collective misperception of our own identities.” The November 17 film festival will last eight and a half hours, and it will also include a classic feature, Purlie Victorious, The Last/First Kiss (2011) and Raising Izzie, by writer/producer David Conley, which about two orphaned white children adopted by a black couple who can’t have kids. The festival will be preceded by a kickoff event a week earlier—Spoken Word & Live Jazz—with music, poetry and refreshments. (Simmons is also a poet.) Southampton-based Charles Certain and Certain Moves, whose sax drew them in at jam sessions at Bay Street, will perform along with special guests Ken Morsch—a guitarist and singer—and Yung G. Jones, who will sing old school ballads. The festival and kickoff are intended as fundraisers for AAMEE, Simmons says. It’s her hope that the museum, the sole “African American building in Southampton”—it used to be Randy’s Barber Shop— will be able to expand its art gallery and serve wider educational purposes by becoming a computer center and a venue for entertainment, especially jazz. Spoken Word & Live Jazz, Southampton Cultural Center, 25 Pond Lane, Southampton, 11/9, 7–9 p.m., $20. The Black Film Festival, The Parrish Art Museum, 279 Montauk Highway, Water Mill, 11/17, 12:30–9 p.m.,, 631-283-2118, www.parrishart. org. $7 admission, $20 day pass

Hector deCordova’s “Fantasy as Reality” By marion wolberg weiss


Alfonso Ossorio who has admittedly inspired deCordova. What’s salient is that these pieces pay homage to Ossorio as well as deCordova, proving that the latter artist has a special way with materials and textures. Many elements are found objects from the beach and elsewhere, causing deCordova to wonder what their life was like before he found them. There are other paintings that are somewhat surreal, yet given a gentle touch by the artist. Consider “Come Closer”: a man with butterfly wings and a net eyeing a huge

n a crisp fall day, there’s nothing better than taking a ride to the North Fork. Or even better yet, stopping off to see an art exhibit while you’re there. Last week’s Art Commentary featured galleries in Greenport; this time, it’s nearby Jamesport. North Fork resident and longtime artist Hector deCordova (who has exhibited in Mexico, Puerto Rica and Costa Rica, besides the United States) has mounted a lovely and comprehensive show at the historic Barn Gallery on the grounds of the Jedediah Hawkins Inn. Built in 1863, the Inn offers pleasant accommodations, a charming restaurant, grape arbors and verdant fields. The point is, deCordova’s exhibit fits in well with the surroundings, establishing an ambience of peace, calm and spirituality. For example, there’s “Trout Pond,” a large blue–green image that recalls the gentleness of Monet’s style. “Night Sounds,” featuring a pink whirlpool, also establishes a Monet- sense of “being there.” Yet some works evoke a different mood, created as assemblages with bright colors, decorative designs and found objects. Imagine the great Work by Hector deCordova

butterfly floating above him. Then there’s “Bubba’s Monsters” featuring a man looking at a school of large fish. In both images, human beings and nature become one entity. Conversely, “The Source” shows large birds encircling a group of hooded, medieval–looking figures. We are not sure if the birds are friends or foes, and we do not get an immediate connection between the humans and nature. The same may be true of the watercolor “Kites,” where an image seen from above captures figures and birds cavorting below. Again, we are not sure if the two species have bonded or are threatened by one another. Another subject and theme that deCordova creates are his male-female figures, like “Family Ties” and “Asian Dreams,” where connection is also important. Sometimes the humans are simple touching, sometimes they are intertwined, forming one being. No matter what diverse styles or themes the artist uses, the idea of “fantasy as reality” is pervasive. It’s quite a feat to synthesize a large body of work into a single concept, but deCordova certainly does it. “Fantasy as Reality” will be on view until Nov. 16 at Jamesport Jedediah Hawkins Inn, 400 South Jamesport Ave., Jamesport. 631-722-2900,

Thrills Aplenty, But a Bleak Outlook By Joan baum

The Panther, Nelson DeMille’s 625-page new Black Ops, is a page turner, and it’s just zoomed into the number-one spot on The New York Times fiction list. The book may have a few repetitive passages on American predator drones and Hellfire missiles and 2,000-year-old Yemeni cities, but then again, it’s all timely and significant content. Demille’s 17th book and sixth featuring retired NYPD homicide Detective John Corey, The Panther (Grand Central Publishing) compels, but it also impresses with its carefully researched history of Yemen, a Middle East country that many Americans remember from Al Qaeda’s bombing of the USS Cole on October 12, 2000 in the port of Aden—17 American sailors killed, many wounded, the attack a shock to the security and intelligence system. Now in DeMille’s fascinating fictionalized thriller, set in 2004, Yemen comes into sharp focus as hopelessly corrupt and frighteningly fractured, full of fierce hatreds, tribes against tribes, fundamentalists against a weak central government, and everyone against the West, particularly America. Those not engaged in torture, kidnapping, bribery and murder space out or get fired up on the national narcotic, khat. “If the earth had an anus, it would be located in Yemen,” says Corey. He was there for a month in 2001. “The beaches are topless. You get your head blown off.” Investigating the Cole is ostensibly the main reason Corey and his wife Kate Mayfield, who both work as special agents in Lower Manhattan for the FBI, are

chosen (read: seduced, tricked, set up) to become bait for The Panther. The Anti-Terrorism Task Force wants them to confirm that the Cole attack was the work of New Jersey-born Bulus ibn al-Darwish, al Numair, a.k.a. The Panther, now hiding out in a cave in Marib, and to capture (read: kill) him. The theory behind the CIA/FBI/NYPD collaboration is that “if you mix people from various law enforcement and intelligence agencies into a single organization, you will get different skills and mind-sets coming together to form synergy and that will lead to better results.” (FBI folks tend to come from the burbs or boondocks, cops from urban areas.) Right! A united force against The Enemy, but as John suspects, the enemy can also be close to home. The Middle East has no exclusive claim on the politics of “who owes who what or is ready to betray whom.” Spooks don’t have careers, but callings. DeMille, 69, who lives on Long Island, knows whereof he writes. A decorated former First Lieutenant in the Army who served in Vietnam, he went on to earn a degree in Political Science and History. He’s a skilled writer, getting the action going immediately in chapter one, as The Panther menacingly springs to life. The following chapter introduces Corey whose first-person observations and many gnomic utterances to the air show him to be extremely entertaining as well as intelligent. Though DeMille has been called politically incorrect, his take here on the Middle East and Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula seems persuasive. And depressing. “So what have we learned from the Cole and 9/11 and all the terrorist attacks

before and since? Two things we forgot over the years: Kill them before they kill you, and if they kill you, hunt them down and deliver lethal justice.” As for the age-old clash between the hawks and the doves—“the ballsy and the ball-less”—it would appear that nothing much has changed since The Cold War—The Pentagon, The State Department, intelligence agencies and The White House all have different agendas. The only people who have “a clear agenda” are “the terrorists.” They turn on their own people because they are single-minded in their pursuit. Ironically, they think America is single-minded, obsessed with Al Qaeda. A grim conviction undergirds the book’s pessimistic theme: “Those of us who dream of a better Yemen—a better Mideast [especially for women and democracy] are fooling ourselves.” The place is a quagmire—“the land of the mirage...and when you arrived at the lifesaving water, it disappeared, and you discovered the bones of those who’d been there before you. You discovered death.” What stops The Panther from being a cynical downer is its deliciously sardonic, sarcastic, smart, smart-ass hero who knows that the “reason the best-laid plans of mice and men often go astray is not the plan it’s the mice and men.” DeMille invests Corey with a basic decency and humanitarian regard so that unlike Sisyphus, he condemns himself with passion and purpose to keep pushing that rock uphill. Nelson DeMille is scheduled to tour BookHampton stores on Saturday, December 1, 11 a.m. in Mattituck, 2 p.m. in Southampton and 4 p.m. in East Hampton.

A Guide to Local Recycling Centers By george holzman III


ith Hurricane Sandy behind us, you’re probably doing some cleaning in the coming days. The East End has handy transfer stations to take in all that man-made stuff in your garage or basement. “The three Rs:” Reducing, Recycling and Reusing are becoming more popular. You only need to look at your local grocery store—now many consumers are using reusable bags. McDonalds is switching to brown paper bags and the water bottles we drink from now are made of thinner plastic. Many corporations are doing their part in hopes of creating a greener future for everyone. There are countless benefits to recycling plastic, glass, paper and even electronics. It reduces the need for landfills, incineration, saves energy, decreases emission of greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming and conserves natural resources such as minerals, water and timber. By recycling you are helping to sustain the environment for future generations. Saving the world one can at a time. I will be mentioning three towns on the East End that have transfer stations where you can drop off all of your recyclables and waste materials. These

include Southampton, East Hampton and Sag Harbor. The Sag Harbor Recycling Center, which is located at 485 Main Street, is a transfer station where you can drop off cans, glass bottles, paper, corrugated cardboard and plastics(#1 and #2 only). This is available to all residents free of charge. Garbage must be in “green bags,” which may be purchased in advance at area stores. There is a drop-off bin for clothing and a receptacle for used motor oil. The North Sea Recycling Center is located at 1370 Majors Path outside Southampton Village. They accept everything mentioned above plus electronic waste (including computers and ink cartridges), bulk items, furniture, construction debris, tires and propane tanks. You can even drop off your Christmas tree free of charge between the first of January and the 31st of January. The town of Southampton prides itself on keeping the environment and especially the beaches free of trash and harmful waste. By working with them you are helping to make sure everyone has a beautiful beach to enjoy all year. Lastly is the East Hampton Town Recycling and Composting Center, located at 260 Springs Fireplace Road. With a permit you will be able to recycle wet garbage and recyclable items. You can go on their website to find out what items they do accept and to learn about STOP days (Stop Throwing Out Pollution).

They currently accept #1 and #2 plastics (Look for a “1” or “2” on the bottom of the bottle, inside the recycling logo). They also accept glass bottles, glass jars, corrugated cardboard, newspapers, batteries and electronics. Clothing may be donated. Hazardous waste is prohibited and construction and demolition debris is limited to one truckload. On S.T.O.P days both Montauk and East Hampton residents are able to throw away hazardous household materials including cleaning supplies. These occur once a year at both the Montauk and East Hampton facilities. So now that you have some information on different transfer stations on the East End, it’s time to do your part. Buy those reusable bags at your local grocery. Use your bottle of water over and over. Set aside a garbage can in your garage for bottles, cans and other recyclable items.

After Sandy, The Pros & Cons of a Wired World By MATTHEW APFEL

sense of the word. Power to come and go as we please, power to eat, power to learn and read and communicate—at least on the Internet. In the first hours after the storm hit, I had no idea just how severe the storm was in New Jersey, or how lucky those Upper East Siders were to still have their electricity. I was naively enjoying a new set of sounds: the wind whistling, rain pitter-pattering down my chimney and the occasional police siren. I remember thinking that there weren’t nearly as many

I’m a seasonal East End resident and live in downtown Manhattan during the school year. So I’ve had an eventful week, to say the least. I spent most of Monday out and about with my kids in pre-storm anticipation. It was barely raining and there was very little wind. My oldest daughter used her flip cam to record personal storm reports from the Hudson River Park, which she planned to upload to YouTube so that friends and family could watch. She never got the chance. At 7 p.m. the Hudson was high, but still contained to its banks. Cars drove freely along West Street. By 7:45 or so, the power was out. Even worse, there was four feet of water on my street, and it was rising quickly. Panic never set in, just chaos. I spent the next five hours bailing water from my lobby, joined by about 15 neighbors. We used sandbags, snow shovels, buckets, and dustpans—hardly modern technology—but were able to keep much of the water out of our building and save our lobby. We were lucky. Computer-generated models helped forecasters track Hurricane Sandy. At about 1 a.m. the water finally receded. We all shook hands, high-fived, and went to bed. As I sat in sirens as on 9/11, which was a positive sign. I thought my dark, quiet apartment, with my family sleeping everything would probably be OK in the morning. How wrong I was—but then again, I had no power soundly, I took a few moments to reflect upon one so how would I know? thing that has occupied my mind ever since: Power. I’ve been through shorter blackouts before; I only I’m talking about electricity, of course. But it runs deeper than that. Electricity means power in every lost power for a few hours during Hurricane Irene

and ended up hosting three friends who weren’t so fortunate. Now it’s three days later and who knows when the juice will return. The waiting game is maddening! Will it come back in an hour? A day? A week? In a blackout we lose all sense of time, and that’s when we realize that Power truly is a mindset. Without electricity, even the simplest tasks require us to adjust our thought patterns. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to retrace my footsteps inside my own home, because I instinctively forgot to carry my flashlight with me. Obviously, this pales in comparison to those who’ve lost property and loved ones, and it’s meant as an observation, not a complaint. Here’s the bigger point: electricity is something we all take for granted. We’ve built an incredibly productive, fruitful society around electricity, and it never ceases to amaze me how vulnerable we are to losing it. At the same time, I can’t help but think of all the ways that technology has helped us during this storm and its aftermath. First came the computer forecasting; there were models over a week ago that predicted where this unusual storm would hit, with fairly remarkable precision. Rescue workers have access to infrared cameras to search for survivors and submersible devices to help pump out the flooded subways and tunnels. Faced with gridlock, New Yorkers are organizing neighborhood car pooling forums on Craigslist; too bad the ride sharing app I wrote about a few weeks ago is hung up in legal challenges. Technology can’t stop disasters from happening. But maybe it can help us plan for the worst—and respond more effectively—the next time it happens. I hope so.

Finding the Danger Zones in Your Own Home By danielle fassman, M.D.


he definition of home is changing. Fast-paced society transforms the once romanticized refuge into a stable crash pad or convenient fuel stop. Scifi technology like automation revolutionizes the home, altering fundamental interactions like cooking, watching TV, turning lights on or off and managing security, which can be done remotely. And it is not just what is inside that counts, This is the East End, known for its landscaping. Beautification does more than just please the eye – it makes the yard safer. Clearing debris and having clean, paved walkways or defined paths can minimize accidents and infections for both humans and animals. Maintaining finishes on decks and patios can help avoid injuries, from broken bones to potentially lethal fall-related head trauma. This is especially relevant with the upcoming seasons as leaves, rain, slush and ice can not only damage property but make it more hazardous. Trees require trimming as age and weather increase the likelihood of falling branches, which can destroy roofs, windows and cars or cause direct injury. Home is where the heart is, even if the body is elsewhere. The home should be a beacon of safety, yet many houses are filled with perils waiting to wreak havoc in people’s lives. Forget the ghosts and skeletons, it is what is outside the closet that can actually cause harm. Stairs can pose health risks for the young and

old. A gate may protect children from falls and slips but be impractical for adults who often need to reach essential rooms like the bedroom and bathroom. This is particularly relevant for those with chronic or debilitating disease. Though ramps or motorized chairs may help the severely immobile, stairs can still hinder able individuals who do not use such equipment. Stair-sensitive conditions include neurological and neuromuscular disease disturbing gait, coordination and muscle tone like Multiple Sclerosis, Myasthenia Gravis, Parkinson’s, Piriformis Syndrome and Distal Muscular Dystrophy (predilection for adults). Atherosclerosis can impede leg circulation and cause peripheral arterial disease, which often presents with intermittent claudication (pain with walking/exercising). Stairs can pose challenges for stroke patients and those with knee or inflammatory disorders like gout (which can aggregate in knees and toes, cause pain and disrupt motion). People who have difficulty balancing from optic disease like Meniere’s or had an acoustic neuroma removed, and patients with visual degeneration should also be cautious. While ranchstyle homes may not be the answer for everyone, safely installed banisters and flooring, and avoiding rugs may prove helpful. Showers and bathtubs can be particularly dangerous. Possible precautions include using a suction-cup mat inside and a towel or mat outside, installing height-appropriate handrails on walls and having low bases to ease movements into and out

of units. Bathing areas may teem with mold, which can be inhaled and/or absorbed. It is important to clean regularly, check that the shower curtain is odor-free, repair faulty plumbing to avoid mildew and dirty runoff backfill, and have proper ventilation. Electronics also require safe usage and storage. The kitchen is a high-traffic area. Keeping knives out of children’s reach and having enough vents and proper electrical circuitry can help avert common yet serious injuries. Many foods need specific preservation conditions. Setting the refrigerator and freezer to the right temperatures and making sure bags or bins are adequately sealed can help ward off an array of digestive diseases. Carbon monoxide detectors are as important as smoke detectors. Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas that kills silently in minutes. According to a study updated in 2011 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is a leading cause of unintentional poisoning deaths in the United States…non--fire-related CO poisoning is responsible for approximately 15,000 emergency department visits and nearly 500 deaths annually.” CO binds to the heme molecule in blood more strongly than oxygen. This makes CO easier for red blood cells to pick up and harder for them to release. CO poisoning causes a range of ailments including but not limited to dizziness, headache, confusion, trouble breathing, coma and death. Whether home is the ultimate comfort zone or an occasional hangout, it should always be safe.

See what’s cooking now.

Where to save while dining out.

Meet the Chef: Ty Kotz of Topping Rose House


om Colicchio’s latest enterprise, The Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton, opened just two months ago. At its helm is Chef de Cuisine Ty Kotz. I took a tour of the restaurant and its garden with Kotz last week. Afterward I chatted with Tom Colicchio and he said exactly what I was thinking about Kotz: “There’s just something about him.” Clearly Kotz is hardworking and dedicated—I very much look forward to enjoying the fruits of his talents when I dine at Topping Rose for the first time next week. What impressed me most about Kotz was his almost palpable earnestness. Naturally, it turns out that Kotz began life as a farm boy. He spent his early years in rural Pennsylvania. His family then moved to a small town outside of Cleveland, Ohio. His mother instilled in him an appreciation for fresh ingredients and good cooking. Following his graduation from the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in 1998, Kotz made a move to New York where he worked at some top restaurants, including seven years with Danny Meyer at Tabla. After 15 years in New York Kotz relocated to East Hampton. He says he’s “very excited to be surrounded by farms.” Like every inveterate foodie, he’s at it 24/7. Outside of his hours at Topping Rose, Kotz brews beer at home and has been “helped” in making pasta by his daughter since she was two years old. Kotz says that they just might grow some hops

on the Topping Rose property some day. Already idea to its apogee. Kotz said that other area chefs have been very the one-acre garden plot, designed and worked by Jeff Negron of The Growing Seed, provides beautiful, welcoming and have helped him to connect with organic greens, carrots, turnips, radishes, peas and local farmers. Sometimes the staff from Southfork herbs. Next year the plan is to add figs, raspberries Kitchen, which is just down the road, comes in for and blueberries but, as Kotz says, “At the end of the drinks after work. Kotz quoted Danny Meyer as saying “All boats rise with the tide.” day the soil and Mother Nature tell It’s a fine time for sailing through the you what’s going to be possible. Next local restaurant scene. Kotz told me year’s gonna be a lot of fun. This is that the Topping Rose already has a really something special, an amazing lot of local, regular customers. opportunity.” It certainly looks like Colicchio’s Kotz proudly showed me a big farm-to-table concepts are here to batch of tomatoes from Pike’s Farm stay in Bridgehampton. When I asked that his staff had frozen. He says he’ll Colicchio if he feels like he’s done be fermenting some chilies to make it all now—with his restaurants and his own Tabasco-like sauce. What gardens and cookbooks and wine and doesn’t he do? Well, he has a pastry the inn—he said no. He said it’s about chef, Cassandra, on staff to tackle the young chefs like Kotz coming up desserts. He credits her with making now—the future is theirs and it’s a a superior chocolate cake. bright one! Kotz told me that he prides himself The Topping Rose House restaurant on treating his staff as a team and is now open for dinner Wednesday on working closely with the front-ofthrough Sunday. The adjacent inn house. He encourages questions from Kotz in the Topping Rose kitchen will open in the new year and the food all sides. Colicchio stressed that most of the entrées at service will go to seven days, all meals. It’s a good Topping Rose are dishes he has never offered before. thing Kotz is used to hard work. Kotz is charged with realizing Colicchio’s vision. The Topping Rose House, 1 Bridgehampton-Sag That too is exciting.

Hearty, Local Fare Fits the Bill Hurricane Sandy surely created havoc with many a coastal area, including the East End of Long Island. We were given warnings where necessary by local authorities, Governor Cuomo and President Obama, imploring us to listen to instructions, take heed and use common sense—that is until the power went out for many, including us. However, our battery operated radio kept us informed through the two days and nights of darkness. We obviously are some of the lucky ones. We had candles and batteries galore, moved any valuables (mostly books and treasured framed photos) to a higher level and made the necessary phone calls. I had cooked short ribs a couple of days before and they were in the refrigerator along with fresh shiitake mushrooms from David Falkowski’s farm and other goodies. I sautéed the mushrooms briefly and added a little broth to keep them moist, then pulled the meat from the short ribs which were braised with carrots and fennel for a savory sauce. With lit candles everywhere in my country kitchen and a Garland gas stove I cooked fettuccine pasta (I always have lots of pasta in my pantry) and tossed it with the mushrooms, the pulled braised short ribs and its delectable sauce. As we enjoyed this scrumptious dinner by candlelight we were simply grateful to be safe from the perils of the storm.

A salad of perky greens would be lovely to serve before or after the hearty and comforting pasta. Arugula, watercress and curly endive with fresh garden herbs might just do the trick. FETTUCINE PASTA WITH SHORT RIBS AND SHIITAKE MUSHROOMS Cooked short ribs pulled from the bone and braised shiitake mushrooms over fettuccine make for one of the most comforting dishes as we embrace the fall season. Serves 4 4 prepared short ribs with vegetable sauce* 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1/3 pound shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, rinsed, dried and thinly sliced 6 tablespoons homemade or low-sodium chicken broth Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 pound fettuccine Coarsely chopped Italian parsley for garnish 1. Cut the short rib meat away from the bones, discarding the bone and any fatty deposits. Slice the meat into thin strips and add to the vegetable broth the meat cooked in. Set aside. 2. Heat the oil and butter in a 10-inch skillet and when butter foam subsides put in the mushrooms and stir to coat. Cook over medium-low heat for a couple of minutes and add the broth and seasonings; stir to mix. Cook with cover ajar for 2 to 3 minutes until mushrooms are tender. Remove from heat and add the short ribs with their sauce and toss to

distribute the mushrooms and meat. Keep warm over low heat. 3. Meanwhile, fill a 5 to 6 quart saucepot with cold water and bring to a rolling boil. Put in the pasta all at once and stir with a large pasta fork to separate strands: return to the boil. Cook pasta, uncovered for 10 to 12 minutes or until al dente, or firm to the bite. When done add a couple of tablespoons of the pasta cooking water to the beef and mushrooms then drain pasta in a colander. Place several spoonfuls of the warm sauce on a heated serving platter and transfer pasta to the serving platter. 4. Pour short rib/mushroom sauce over the pasta and toss gently to mix. Sprinkle with parsley and serve on warm plates. *The recipe for the braised short ribs with carrots and fennel is from Silvia Lehrer’s Savoring the Hamptons: Discovering the Food and Wine of Long Island’s East End, Running Press, 2011. COUNTRY FARMSTAND SALAD Take advantage of farm stand availability to enjoy local freshness in the salad bowl! Serves 4 6 to 7 cups selected salad greens such as arugula, curly endive and watercress 1/3 cup coarsely chopped mixed fresh herbs such as basil, tarragon and mint 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil Kosher salt 1 tablespoon tarragon herb vinegar 3 scallions, white and light green part, thinly sliced 2 tablespoons toasted sunflower seeds 1. Wash lettuces separately and spin dry in a salad spinner. Wash and dry the herbs, taking care not to damage them. Arrange the leaves and herbs in a loose pile in a large, wide salad bowl. 2. Carefully toss the greens with the oil to coat the leaves evenly. This can be done up to 10 minutes before adding the vinegar. Dip about one-third of a teaspoon of salt into a tablespoon measure and fill the measure with the herb vinegar. Stir the salt into the vinegar and pour over the salad. Carefully toss again while arranging the leaves to their best advantage to balance color and texture. Sprinkle over the scallions and sesame seeds and serve at once.

Beautiful homes sold this week.

Bargains in the East End.

By kelly ann krieger


he aftermath of Superstorm Sandy has left many homeowners in devastation. Some may have recently bought a new home while others have lived in the same home for 30 or 40 years. Whatever the case may be, the most important thing is that you and your family are safe. When it comes time to build again or to repair any damage, there are a lot of things to take into consideration before deciding what and how to report your homeowners claim. Dayton Ritz & Osborne has been faithfully serving and providing the East End community with insurance coverage since 1875—one of the few firms that can compare the Hurricane of 1938 to our recent storm. I spoke to George Yates, one of the partners at Dayton Ritz & Osborne and he offered me insight as to how homeowners should proceed with claims, as well as a few helpful tips: Take photos—Photos are crucial when filing a claim and can really help the adjuster assess the damage. Make an inventory list in detail of all the damage. If you’re filing a flood claim, mark the “high water” level of where the water came into your home or building. Move any damaged items off to the side for the adjuster to take a second look at. In addition to the photos you have already provided this will allow the

adjuster to quote an accurate amount for the claim. Report the claim to your insurance company only after you have met your deductible. There is no need to clutter the phone lines and add extra paperwork, if you have not already met your deductible. Be patient—there are an overwhelming amount of claims and some cases are more severe than others. Note that there are no special hurricane deductions for “Sandy.” Companies are using a standard flat deduction to assess the claim. I also learned that deductibles vary according to your specific policy. It’s important to read it over and understand all the guidelines and rules. Every area was affected differently and some people may have lost their homes completely. If you were one of the lucky homeowners who only had minimal damage, allow the adjusters the time to work with those who need immediate attention. A tree down, broken fence or other minor damage does not compare to some of the devastation we have witnessed in the papers or on the news. Some people are still without power and it has been very difficult for them to get in contact with their insurance companies, LIPA or Cablevision, but each company has an “800” number. Dialing this number is the best route to take if you’ve been waiting for hours and not getting through to your company. If you’re not happy with the outcome of your insurance claim, perhaps it’s time to shop around and make sure you and your home are well protected. Become proactive and educate yourself about New
