First Thanksgiving Where Did they Eat?Southampton? Southold?Gardiner’s Island? By Dan Rattiner As we sit down to our Thanksgiving dinner, give thanks for the very first one held between the Puritans and the Indians here on Long Island. It was a long time ago and it was done in friendship. And though there is no record of exactly where it was, it is possible to figure it out. The three candidates for the First Thanksgiving are Southold, Southampton and East Hampton. The year would have been 1639, if East Hampton, 1640 in either Southold or Southampton. All three communities were settled within a few years of one another, but none were settled by the same group as the other two. Let’s look into the history books and see whose claim of the three for First Thanksgiving is the strongest. There is little doubt that the first English settler on Long Island was Lion Gardiner. Gardiner was a 38-year-old fortifications Engineer building English forts in France and Holland when King Charles of England asked him to go to America to build a Fort at the mouth of the Connecticut River so English soldiers from Boston could take control of the area. The King said the community was being threatened not only by a vicious tribe of Indians, but also some Dutchmen, who had settled in New Amsterdam, and were now trading furs and other merchandise with the Indians from boats they anchored at the mouth of the Connecticut River. They were expanding their influence toward the English colonies near Boston. He could not have that. Gardiner and his wife sailed across the Atlantic in the stormy winter of 1636. The seas were rough. The journey took the ship he was on four months. Gardiner hired local builders from Connecticut and together with their families endured two and a half years of Indian attacks
building the fort. There were numerous tribes in the area. The attacks came from the Pequots, who were vicious, burning alive those who opposed them and also skinning them. Gardiner kept a diary. He was shot by arrows several times, he lost his right hand man to a Pequot ambush. But he survived and completed the fort. There, he briefly became the leader of the 25 men and women and children living within it. But then, he learned that the King wanted an assault conducted from that fort by English Redcoats that he said he would send down from Boston. He wanted the Pequots destroyed.
Let’s look and see whose claim for the first Thanksgiving is strongest. Gardiner wrote the King and said it would only stir the Pequots up if Redcoats came. “Then the soldiers will leave, and we will all be killed,” he wrote. It didn’t stop King Charles. Sixty soldiers came, allied themselves with about 70 warriors from the Mohegan Tribe who were also being slaughtered by the Pequots, and conducted the extermination campaign. The Pequot encampment was burned and its occupants killed. A few survived in the woods, but they were no longer a danger to anyone. During this time, in 1638, Chief Wyandanch, the King of the Montauk tribe at the tip of Long Island, heard about Gardiner in Connecticut and with an escort, paddled canoes across Long
Island Sound to visit him at the fort, which was now called Old Saybrook Fort. Wyandanch said that he, along with the other 13 tribes of Long Island, would, as had the Mohegans, ally themselves with Gardiner and his British Redcoats. He had heard of the damage that could be done with gunpowder, which was a great mystery to him and the other Indians. He asked that Gardiner protect the Montauks. He also offered Gardiner an uninhabited island across the water, just offshore Amagansett, Long Island as a place where Gardiner could live and establish a plantation. Long Island Indians held weddings and rituals there. There would be plenty of room for them all. Gardiner accepted this offer, and with the King’s blessing, took his wife, children and servants to the island in July of 1639 to live off the land. There they established a farm, raised cattle and built a manor house. It was a little kingdom with Lion Gardiner its ruler. Gardiner paid for the Island with six fur coats and a promise of protection. He and Wyandanch also became blood brothers. You can make a pretty strong case that the first Thanksgiving dinner on Long Island took place soon after Gardiner’s landing there in July of 1639. The Southampton claim, though 17 months later, is equally as strong, as it was an actual creation of a village with laws, security and property, none of which was done at Gardiner’s Island. This expedition to Long Island came about by order of the Governor of Massachusetts Colony in the spring of 1640. By this time, the Dutch were clearly establishing new communities both up into what is now Westchester and out onto Long Island as far as Flushing and Brooklyn. (continued on page 16)

Governor Winthrop knew the Indians on Long Island were peaceable enough. His main concern, again, was the Dutch expansion. He organized a group of 10 men and women that would leave Lynn, Massachusetts in a sloop captained by Daniel How to establish an English settlement along the northern coast of Long Island about equidistant between New Amsterdam and Montauk. With such a settlement, he hoped to essentially stop the Dutch expansion eastward in its tracks. Keep in mind that unlike up in Boston, where soldiers kept order, the Dutch in New York were independent of the government of Holland. They were, instead, Dutch men and women hired by a corporation based in Amsterdam known as the Dutch East India Trading Company whose purpose was to establish trading posts in undeveloped places around the globe. They had hired guards to keep order. But there were no government soldiers accompanying them. The men and women embarked from Lynn and after several days at sea landed amidst friendly Indians in the wilds of Long Island at a place they called Cow Bay—nearby to what is today Manhasset. They made a “purchase” from the Indians that day, buying practically everything from that point and further out east in exchange for a few fur coats and axe handles. They did know about Lion Gardiner. They hoped to link up with him later. The encampment at Cow Bay, however, was short lived. The word of their presence quickly got to Governor Kieft in New Amsterdam who quickly ordered three men to go out there and talk to the settlers and tell them this was Dutch
Land. The men went out and nailed a Coat of Arms of the Prince of Orange to a tree, then asked the Englishmen to come over and have a look at it. The English settlers, who consisted of James Farrett, eight men, two women and one child, came over, said they had a grant from Governor Winthrop and the Earl of Sterling and had one of their friendly Indians take out a piece of charcoal and draw an ugly face on the Coat of Arms. The men then chopped down the tree and cut it up. They said they would make one of their first houses out of it. The Dutch left. Two days later, a Sheriff from New Amsterdam together with 25 security officers came out and arrested the Englishmen on charges of being “strollers and vagabonds” and took them to a meetinghouse in Hempstead. There, they were interrogated and told if they did not leave, they would be imprisoned. They then agreed to leave, and did. Their next landing, which took place later in May of 1640, took place in a harbor that is now part of North Sea, Southampton, nearly 60 miles to the west of their altercation with the Dutch at Cow Bay. When they came ashore, the woman said the first words of the English settlers there, which were “For conscience sake, we are on Dry Land once more.” To this day, nobody has ever adequately explained, to me anyway, just exactly what that meant. In any case, the new location thrived and was named by the new settlers as Southampton. Shinnecock Indians they had met on the shore had approached them with arms extended. They would help them create a settlement there. They
accepted, in exchange for “selling” their land to the English—which was done on December 14, 1640, for 16 fur coats, 60 bushels of corn. It is not clear if the Indians had any concept of land ownership at the time. Probably not. The Shinnecocks showed the settlers how to dig down into the dirt and create caves with branches overarching them as basic structures for their homes. Walls at the edges of the hole would be lined with tree stumps then covered with animal skins. The tree branches would be covered with mud, sod and salt hay from the beaches. It kept them warm in the night through the brutal winter that was soon upon them. The Indians also showed the English how to go offshore whaling and which herbs were edible. The early settlers also created candles they could burn for light from bayberries gathered by their children. The original settlement, selected by the Shinnecocks who led them to it, was a wooded area inland of “Conscience Point” as it was named later where they came ashore. The settlers called the place Southampton at first—it was about where Southampton Hospital is today—and when the center of downtown Southampton moved to the west where it is today, this old area became known as “Old Town.” One can make a very strong argument that indeed it was in Old Town that there was held the first Thanksgiving. The third claim for the First Thanksgiving comes from the Town of Southold on the North Fork, but is not as strong as the other two. Southold claims that its town was also settled in 1640 by a Reverend John Youngs who had (continued on page 20)

Overshooting How the Distraction of Flying or Driving Interferes with Texting By Dan Rattiner Two weeks ago, two airline pilots in the cockpit of a jumbo jet with 236 passengers on board overshot their destination, which was Minneapolis. Passing high above that city, they continued to fly along for an hour and a half on autopilot before finally coming to their senses above the next state, which happened to be Wisconsin. They had pretty much turned down the anxious voices on the cockpit radio system urging them to turn around so it would not interfere. It is hard to fly an airplane while texting on a laptop, which is what they were doing. A week later, after an investigation, they were fired. This event highlights three very special but diverse activities. They are texting, autopiloting and driving a car or plane. The most important of these, even more
important than texting, is autopiloting. Autopilot, when put aboard a car or airplane and used properly, can enable you to get where you have to go while texting without having to pay any attention to how you got there. That one can text without adverse effects was amply demonstrated in this case over Minnesota and Wisconsin. It was just an unfortunate lapse that the pilots, busy texting, were too distracted to tell autopilot to set the plane down. That is, in fact, what they were really guilty of. Regarding automobiles, it is very unfortunate that autopilot has never fully caught on with driving an automobile. An early version put out by Honda enabled your car to park itself by making judgment calls about the car in front and the car in back and how far from the passing cars you are when autopilot has to swing you out into traffic backing up for a few moments.
After it decides what to do, of course, Autopilot does it, perfectly and accurately. Honda went to great expense to put this modest autopilot into their cars. It could free you up to continue texting instead of having to muscle a car into a parking spot. Most people didn’t trust autopilot to park your car. I think that people didn’t trust it because they believed that since it could only do that one thing, it was probably not that smart. It might be as smart as a cat. Cats aren’t that smart. Also, it might be unpredictable and unreliable, like a cat. Furthermore, even if it worked perfectly, you’d STILL have to do all the other car driving things while driving along texting, and this was not very satisfactory. For example, you still might – while texting — overshoot your destination (continued on page 20)
THE $10,000 MISTAKE AFTER DINNER AT MIRKO’S By Dan Rattiner When your team wins the World Series, you get a thick World Series ring to wear for the rest of your life. Most people think that these rings are only for the players, so when you see an older man wearing a World Series ring—particularly a New York Yankees ring, since there have been so many World Series wins in the last 90 years—you figure that he might have been the catcher or right fielder in 1957, for example, and you might treat him accordingly. The fact is, World Series rings go to coaches, managers, owners and batboys. I know several men in the Hamptons who wear World Series rings proudly, even though they have never
played in a World Series game. They love the attention the ring brings when they meet new people. You can’t miss the ring. It is a big, gloppy, 14-carat gold thing with diamonds and rubies and the insignia of the ball club in the center. When asked about it, men either lie for fun or tell the truth, which might be that they are one of the minority owners of the team, or were one of the owners of the team at the time the championship rings were handed out. James M. Nederlander is one of the older men I know who lives out here and wears a World Series ring. The ring bears an inscription— “greatest comeback in history”—and is from 1978, when the Yankees indeed came back after losing the first two World Series games to beat
the Dodgers in six. Nederlander’s name is inscribed inside the ring. It is sized to fit his ring finger. Nederlander, now in his mid-80s, has had a long and successful career in show business. His father owned a movie theater in Detroit and booked acts there. Jimmy, as his friends call him, his brother Robert and other family members expanded the operation all around the country. They currently own theaters in 10 cities, including nine here in Manhattan on Broadway. James has produced or co-produced nearly 300 Broadway shows, including Victor/Victoria, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, The Will Rogers Follies, The Red Shoes, Fiddler (continued on next page)

A Vigil for Peace & Promise By T.J. Clemente A ceremony took place on Saturday, Nov. 7, at 6:27 p.m. at the Patchogue train station on the very site where Ecuadorian immigrant Marcelo Lucero was murdered by seven Patchogue teens one year ago. The ceremony exemplified the best and worst of our diverse society in America. People of a community had come together in solidarity to remember an immigrant who died for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. As the ceremony began, a Patchogue student sang an unusual and passionate rendition of â€œAmerica the Beautifulâ€? in both English and Spanish. Many in the audience had tears in their eyes. Patchogue Mayor Paul V. Pontieriâ€™s message to the gathering stressed both the heinousness of the crime and the sanctity of the memory of a life. The sounds of a waiting train in the background underscored the scene, as a crowd of almost 200â€”many holding candles or wearing white commemorative T-shirtsâ€”â€”listened to multi-cultural folk songs, including a SpanishEnglish version of Bob Dylanâ€™s â€œBlowinâ€™ in the Wind.â€? With the slain manâ€™s family (including his brother, mother and sister) on a stage, the focus was, as Mayor Pontieri put it, â€œthe community coming together as one, not divided into groups like Latina, Italian, Irish and Anglo.â€? Luceroâ€™s mother, Rosario Pero, spoke of her slain son strongly, firmly and with great sadness. His young niece spoke with hope as a perhaps symbol of the future. His brother was defiantly proud as he spoke with tears in his eyes.
The glow of humanity in a town now tainted by the memory of this hate crime was bright. This was not a Latino crowd, but a community. Young parents brought their children, older citizens looked on with respect and sorrow. Noticeably absent were high school studentsâ€” seven of whom were arrested for the murder. Perhaps not much should be read into that, but on the other hand, one wonders what effect it would have had if every student had been required to goâ€”to see and hear the effects of a tragedy caused by hatred and unforgivable behavior. On Sunday at a Catholic service on the actual day of Luceroâ€™s murder, Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy made an unannounced appearance. In the weeks following the crime, Levy had been accused of playing it down and was quoted as saying it wouldâ€™ve been a â€œoneday eventâ€? had it happened in Nassau. The Lucero family has rejected attempts by Levy to meet with them, and reportedly felt â€œambushedâ€? by seeing him at the church. The case against the seven teens is currently being heard in a Suffolk County courthouse in Riverhead. One of the seven has pled guilty to counts of assault and conspiracy, and has agreed to testify against the other six. The debate in Suffolk County on the issue of legal and illegal immigration is spirited, heated and ongoing. There is no simple solution other than to learn to respect the right of every individual to feel free and safe in their pursuit of happiness in this country.

On Friday, November 6, they entertained a 42year-old Hispanic construction worker named Alfredo Blanco in their home. Blanco works as a runner for the Wright and Company construction firm in Water Mill. He and Nederlander had a wonderful time, and were all smiles and thank yous. Nederlander is going to see to it that Blanco gets lots of prime seats at Yankees games next year. Blanco, heading to work on Monday, November 2, found Nederlanderâ€™s World Series ring in the parking lot behind Mirkoâ€™s Restaurant in Water Mill. It was full of diamonds and rubies and said â€œWorld Series Champions 1978â€? on it. Blanco put it in his pocket and continued on to work. Later in the day, he looked the ring over in more detail. He found the inscription, â€œJames M. Nederlander.â€? And he knew what he had to do. The next day, after finding out who Nederlander was, Blanco contacted his office and arranged for one of Nederlanderâ€™s assistants to pick up the ring. There had never been any doubt in Blancoâ€™s mind he would return it. He knew it was worth a fortune. He would return it anyway. The assistant at the office asked Blanco if he wanted a reward. Blanco said no, that would not be necessary. He was just happy to have found it (continued on page 23)

Local Politics: The Right People Lost? By Dan Rattiner Last Tuesday in Southampton, Anna ThroneHolst (I) defeated incumbent Linda Kabot (R) in the race for Town Supervisor. On the same day, Bill Wilkinson (R) defeated Ben Zwirn (D) to become Supervisor in East Hampton. In some ways, in both these races, the candidate with the best experience to do the job lost. But the voters dug deeper than that and looked at other things. In the end, they made the choice that I had personally believed was best. It’s complicated. The job at hand, of course, is dealing with two overgrown town governments more in keeping with better financial times. Both towns, particularly East Hampton, will have to do layoffs and cutbacks, raise taxes and deal with large income shortfalls. In Southampton, the shortfall in 2008 was about $10 million, almost entirely due to less money coming in. In East Hampton, which is half the size of Southampton, the shortfall under the present outgoing Democratic regime is in the area of a whopping $20 to $30 million, something that has accumulated during the six years of the outgoing McGintee regime. For the job at hand in Southampton, Linda Kabot, a fierce, smart and meticulous Supervisor has already shown she has the guts to make these slashes in making public her 2010 budget just before her defeat at the polls. Had she won, she would, I believe, have done these things very well whether anybody liked it or not. Her opponent, Throne-Holst, who beat her, has not had to yet show whether she is made of this
kind of iron. Her experience is as a Town Board member for two years where she has shown intelligence, thoughtfulness and an ability to compromise and reach consensus with others. She would be an unknown in taking the reins where slash and burn is necessary. And yet the public voted her in by a thumping three to two margin. The reason for this, I think, is that Linda Kabot during her two years has shown she has very sharp edges and an unfortunate ability to alienate others. She’s my way or the highway, and although I believe she was the better bet to get it all done right, she might not have done so well in the Getting Along With Others Department. And it is with others, especially in a small town, that you need to rely upon after you decide how you are going to get things done. Even with her shortcomings, she might have won the election if she had not been arrested for DWI by the Police Department of the Village of Westhampton Beach three weeks before the vote. She might have apologized—she was coming home from a family party and admitted to having several drinks—pay the fine and move on. She chose instead to fight the arrest and accuse just about everybody involved with this— the police department, her opponent, the prosecutor among others – as just out to get her. The point is that even if she had won (the election and even the DWI charge) she would be on very bad terms with just about everybody in the town government from the police department on down for quite sometime.

That she could not prove this conspiracy against her in court before the election—the trial she asked for was moved out of the district and postponed till after the election—probably did her in. Now, of course, she will go to court as a private citizen. Her argument that the police violated their oaths and ticketed her on instructions from Throne-Holst will look very different now. The police say she flunked two on the spot inebriation tests and refused to take a breathalyzer test. What do you say to this? In East Hampton, the Democrats, who engineered the six year debacle with the finances of that town, turning an $8 million surplus into a $20 - $30 million plus deficit, nominated someone very capable of cleaning up the mess they created. Before I get to that, I should like to note that 10 years ago, the East Hampton annual budget was just over half the size of the Southampton annual budget, which is in keeping with the fact that Southampton is twice the size of East Hampton. Now, 10 years later, the East Hampton annual budget is LARGER than that in Southampton though the towns remain at the same proportion to one another as they were before. Amazing the amount of bloat the East Hampton Democrats managed to put in during their six years. (In addition, when presenting the new 2010 budget two weeks ago as required by law, the discredited McGintee administration, in contrast to Southampton, has expenses going UP.)

organized a church in New Haven which he chartered October 21, 1640 and who came over with some of his followers in an attempt to found a legal outpost on Long Island to be administered by New Haven. However, if there were any government records made of their landing in Southold, there is no record of them. Southold leaders say these records are lost. Maybe so. In any case, the settlers arrived to further their religious freedom, but their efforts were approved by the government in order, again, to stop the Dutch advance. As near as I could find, there is no record of their actually leaving from New Haven until 1643. About 200 years later, a historian in Southold tried to put together who had settled Southold in 1640 and came up with the names of 130 settlers. However, a later historian looked into all these claims and found that almost all the people named were either not yet born, recorded as living in Connecticut in 1640 and 1641 or dead already. Thus, the existence of the beginnings of Southold are unclear. It seems there are records of some activity by 1643. If I had to choose, I would say Long Island’s first Thanksgiving took place on Gardiner’s Island with Lion Gardiner and his wife Mary and children on one side of the table and his blood brother Wyandanch, other tribal elders and their children on the other, attended by both white servants and Indian servers. The friendship of Wyandanch and Gardiner was to last for 20 years. In 1657, a group of Narragansett tribesmen rowed across Long Island Sound and raided a wedding taking place
at the foot of Fort Hill in Montauk, on top of which the Montauk Manor sits today. The bride, Heather Flower the daughter of Wyandanch, was kidnapped and taken off. The prospective groom was killed by the Narragansetts. Wyandanch, distraught, knowing of Gardiner’s connections on the mainland of Connecticut, went to Gardiner’s Island and pleaded with Gardiner to intervene. Gardiner headed out to Connecticut at once and, by paying a ransom to the Chief of the Naragansetts, got Wyandanch’s daughter back. After her return, however, Wyandanch took sick and died. By that time, although Gardiner continued to run his estate on Gardiner’s Island, he had become the Mayor of still another settlement on Long Island, just across the water from his island, called for a year Maidstone, and then, a year after that, East Hampton. This was in 1648. Gardiner headed up East Hampton for many years. In 1657, when the other elders of East Hampton insisted that an East Hampton woman named Goodye Garlicke was a witch and should be killed, Gardiner counseled caution and insisted that instead she be taken to Hartford Connecticut and given a proper trial by the authorities there. After she was acquitted, he brought her and her husband out to Gardiner’s Island where they helped with the farming on his plantation for the rest of their natural lives. If the occasion of the English coming to New England and the Hamptons brought varied reactions from the natives—from cooperation to war—it is also true that some of the natives, who initially welcomed the English, changed sides.

One such tribe was the Narragansetts, who seeing what was really happening to the natives— disease, subjugation, land seizures and death— after initially welcomed the white men, turned on them in the 1650s. By then, however, it was no use. Soon all the tribal members of the area were getting sick and dying of diseases the white men had brought. The Montauks scattered to the four winds, and what remained of them were paid off to move to the Midwest around 1850 so the new white “owner” of Montauk could have the place for his personal fishing and hunting grounds. Only the Shinnecocks kept themselves intact, accepting an offer for a tribal reservation in Southampton where they are today, and where, because of their unbroken long history extending back to the first encounters at Conscience Point, are about to be federally recognized as a tribe by the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs, probably before this year is out. The Shinnecocks, the only tribe remaining in the Hamptons, celebrates Thanksgiving privately on November 17. A week later, the rest of the Hamptons, also privately, celebrates it too. Thus is the story of Thanksgiving.

unintentionally and find yourself in Wisconsin. Then you’d have to concentrate on getting back, which would mean even less accurate texting. When autopilot is finally put in cars for everything, I think this will be a whole different story. Obviously, it’s just a few engineering steps from autopilot aboard airplanes to autopilot aboard cars. Then, you could hop in your car, press a button and do your texting until the engine turns off and you are – what a surprise – THERE, just like with an airplane. I do feel bad that public pressure on the airlines caused them to fire the pilots. The general public obviously confused cars, where there is no autopilot, with planes, where there is. There was no harm done on the flight. As I said, they forgot to tell the autopilot to bring them down, that was all, and they made up for it once they saw the error of their ways and got autopilot to turn the plane around and safely land it another hour and a half later in Minneapolis. The 256 people on board, disembarking there, never knew about the error – until some tattletale traffic controller squealed on them. And so, with an angry public and the bad public relations to deal with, the airline had to get rid of them. Too bad. It is my belief that until autopilot becomes mandatory for cars, people should refrain from driving until they are able to take a break from their texting. It just impairs texting when you have to drive too. You wind up texting something stupid or the wrong thing to somebody. The result can be people doing the opposite of what you intend for them to do. God forbid that the kids wind up on a street corner with nobody picking them up because of a wrong message texted. As for those pilots, since they’ve done nothing wrong, I say reinstate them. And let’s move along and get autopilot into all cars real fast. Leave the driving to autopilot. Get on with the texting, and with no mistakes.

BUSINESS Givin’ You the
New Town Supervisors: Not Business as Usual the moratorium should continue in Hampton Bays for large-scale projects, but that there can be a process for “exceptions” for smallscale, useful projects. She believes the slowed approvals process in place along Route 39 will weed out undesired or unsound projects, but said her focus is the budget. Even with a special election looming for her soon-to-be vacant seat on the town board, Throne-Holst intends to work with the Republican board to do it right. She said fellow board members will find common ground from which they will resolve financial challenges. She intends to get things done with sound proposals that go beyond politics as usual, for the sake of the town. In private conversation, she expressed sorrow that Sally Pope and Bridget Fleming didn’t win back their board seats. There was no doubt that, post-election, Throne-Holst realized the easy part may have actually been winning the election. In East Hampton the feeling of change was more pronounced. The new board that comes in on Jan. 1 will be under the control of the Republicans, who have three of the five votes. Again the talk is of restructuring the debt and reducing costs by using prudent accounting and management strategies. It will be interesting if the many comments made by supervisor-elect Wilkinson and his spouse about the historic buildings soon to become Town Hall will have some action behind them. Although the town government’s set to move into the
historic buildings by early December, it’s no secret that the project was opposed in most Republican circles, and seen as a symbol of the Democrats’ folly, spending frivolously during a financial crisis. Expect some revelation on this project soon into Wilkinson’s term. With beach fees still in the 2010 budget, perhaps that, too, will be revisited. What remains to be defined is how the probusiness Republicans will aim the town in a perhaps more development-oriented direction. Supervisor McGintee went down swinging to protect East Hampton as it is. Will political change use its authority for some new direction? No one knows. But Supervisor-elect Wilkinson’s presence in Town Hall will lift the morale of many. Through his business expertise, it’s hopeful that he’ll succeed in redirecting the town from its dark fiscal corridor toward the light.
T.J. Clemente In East Hampton and Southampton, the recent election brought new supervisors for the financially troubled towns. The campaign theme of both successful candidates was their expertise in managing and reorganizing town finances. Last Saturday at a breakfast meeting of the J.P. Spata Southampton Democratic Club, Southampton supervisor-elect Anna Throne-Holst spoke of the need to get “fresh blood” in at the department head level to raise morale, create new energy and perhaps cut $1 million of top-heavy salaries off the town’s payroll. She said the 40 jobs Supervisor Kabot was planning to cut Jan. 1 were “people actually doing most of the work.” However Throne-Holst still plans on cutting “another” 20% of the town’s work force of 600 employees through attrition and early retirement to save the town $6 million. She’s now starting to create a new 2010 budget, one she believes the town will need. A new component will be to service the town debt outside the budget, so that revenues raised through the town’s 5% capped tax rate won’t be spent on debt repayment. Throne-Holst believes other new revenue streams can be legally used to pay debt that can be reorganized to be paid over longer terms, at a lower yearly cost to the town. She also vowed to “only spend money the town has, or not spend at all.” Of the two building moratoriums (in Hampton Bays and along Route 39) she said

DAN'S PAPERS, November 13, 2009 Page 22 www.danshamptons.com
Where Am I? Who Am I? By Susan M. Galardi My cell phone area code is a 917. My home phone exchange is 329. But I donâ€™t live in New York City nor East Hampton. So where am I? Used to be, when you called someone, you knew where the person was. Call the home number, and you could envision the person sitting in front of the TV or doing dishes. Call someone at work, and you had that context. Then cell phones happened. Remember calling people from your cell just for the fun of it? â€œIâ€™m walking down Broadway.â€? â€œIâ€™m getting an egg sandwich.â€? â€œIâ€™m at the vet.â€? I called people from their favorite restaurants, the Met just as the orchestra was tuning up or the beachâ€”just to irk them. Since most cell phone plans then were pay-by-the-minute, we kept the calls really short with little cell yells that were the audible forerunner of Tweets. Soon, the novelty wore off. Then it actually started to annoy me that I didnâ€™t know where anyone was. I got into the habit of asking, â€œWhere are you?â€? to establish a sense of place when I called them or they called me on a cell. It only got worse. Because of cell phones and additional area codes for landlines, you didnâ€™t even know where a person actually lived. Used to be in the city, you knew: 212 was Manhattan. 718 was the boroughs. Then, in 1999 came 646, which always felt like a
Philadelphia number. But the addition of 646 was a good thing. Some 212 people looked down upon 718-ers. If you were single and met someone interesting, a 718 area code could bring that budding romance to a screeching haltâ€”the screech being the sound of subway wheels pulling into the Astoria station. You wouldnâ€™t say anything to the person when you looked at the number, youâ€™d just never call and theyâ€™d wonder why for the rest of their lives. In some ways, 646 was the great equalizer. If someone handed you a matchbook with a 646 number, youâ€™d never say, â€œIs that Manhattan or the boroughs?â€? Youâ€™d have to call at least once and find the right opportunity to ask, casually, â€œSo whereâ€™s your apartment?â€? More love connections were probably made with the addition of 646, even if it entailed long subway rides or pricey taxi fares. It was probably responsible for an express train to cohabitation. On Long Island, 516 became the area code in 1951 when it split from 914â€”the area code for all New York suburbs. This was a good distinction. Long Island and Westchester are very different places. But mid-island and the East End are very different too, and this was recognized in 1999 when Suffolk County got the 631 area code. The snob in all of us Hamptonites was happy about that.
Of course, it gets whittled down even further by town. 324 always meant East Hampton. If you knew someone lived in that town, you only had to remember the last four digits of his phone number. Marcy? She was 8030. Gary? 3116. Then came 329, which got a lot of people up in arms. That single digit change said, â€œIâ€™m new to the sceneâ€”neither blueblood nor local.â€? People tried to buy 324 numbers. I know of one person who was lucky enough to inherit a 324â€”it came with the house she bought in 2003. She was the envy of many. When we bought our house in East Hampton in the same year, we got a 329. Ugh. Then something strange happened. A few months ago we moved to North Haven. We wondered if we should try to keep the 329, since we had it for so long and all of our friends knew it. But I looked forward to being a 725. I was proud of our relocation to Sag Harbor and I wanted my phone number to show it. But we ended up keeping the 329. Sag Harbor residents with an East Hampton number. And I still have my 917 New York area code for my cell phone. Weâ€™re all totally out of context; weâ€™ve become virtual people. I recently learned that an editor of the San Francisco Chronicle who died a year ago is still on Facebook. And everyone knows celebrities use PR people or interns to Tweet or post on their walls. Where are we? Who are we? Nowhere, man.

Will Election Affect R.E.?

for him. Nederlander had come by the ring, of course, in 1978. Five years earlier, in 1973, he and his brother Robert had put up money to help their friend George Steinbrenner buy the New York Yankees. As minority owners, they received rings from Steinbrenner whenever the Yankees won the World Series, which has been six times since then. Charlene takes care of five of the rings at home. The sixth, which is Nederlander’s favorite, stays on his finger at all times. Except once. On Sunday night, Nederlander and Charlene dined at Mirko’s Restaurant in Water Mill. After dinner, they walked through the parking lot, got in their car and drove home. Nederlander didn’t notice the ring wasn’t on his finger until he got up the next morning. Where it happened, he did not know. Where it could be, he did not know. He thought he would never see it again. It probably made somebody very happy, to have and maybe be able to sell something worth tens of thousands of dollars. When the call came in to his office from Blanco, Nederlander knew he had to meet the man who found his ring. And so Blanco came to Nederlander’s house on Friday, November 6. They sat in the living room and had something to drink. Nederlander again offered Blanco some money, and again Blanco refused. “Whether you like it or not, you will have lots of box seats for yourself and friends at Yankees games next year,” Nederlander told him. This is a fine man, he told his wife later that evening. And that’s the story.
By T.J. Clemente With local Republicans taking office all over the county, change is in the air. In both Southampton and East Hampton, supervisors are being replaced through virtual landslides, and citizens are happier with the new faces of town government. But what will it mean for the financial driver of the East End—real estate? When asked pointblank how her election as supervisor of Southampton would affect the local real estate industry, supervisor-elect Anna Throne Holst said, “Probably not at all. I believe it’s more of a Wall Street, national economy situation.” However, Hank and Janet Beck, community activists in Southampton, said the perception of better government in Southampton Town would be helpful. Beck said the vigorous promotion of tourism on the East End is the secret to both the local business and real estate sectors coming back to life. He believes that the creation of the website www.eastendgetaway.com will help encourage a new generation of tourists to come out and use the beaches, shop, and eat at the restaurants. Hank believes that the more new people who visit, the more who may decide to buy or rent. In East Hampton, councilwoman-elect Theresa Quigley believes that the knowledgeable potential East Hampton home buyer should feel “relieved.” The potential buyer before this election most likely saw a town, to use Quigley’s words, “in chaos.” She stated that morale is “higher all over town” and that a new govern-
ment will “be attentive to the town’s needs.” This will truly be a positive selling point as realtors will now be able to say that the troubled former regimes of town politics are in the rear view mirror, with a very popular, united team taking the reins of both town governments. Not every buyer is informed about local politics, but the energy of the community can’t be ignored. With two embattled town supervisors leaving the stage, the energy around the two major East End towns will be more positive. Third-quarter real estate sales results of 2009 showed the market no longer in free fall. It showed activity and growth for high-end homes over $2.5 million. The Dow flirting upward around 10,000 is a sign of a recovery in the net worth of stock owners who watched home sales and prices plunge when the Dow bounced at the decade low of 6,500 following last year’s financial meltdown. Momentum is returning as consumers and homebuyers make long-term purchases based on value, need and desires. “Panic” is no longer used to describe local real estate and business markets. Perhaps Quigley is correct and citizens are relieved. Perhaps Throne-Holst is correct to say Wall Street’s recovery, not town hall politics, will lead the way to the real estate recovery here. But I like to think back to BNB CEO Kevin O’Connor, smiling even while the national real estate scene was in disarray, pointing out the window toward the ocean, and saying, “Having that ocean nearby is the greatest security blanket for Hamptons real estate.”

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner Testosterone I’ve always been fascinated by medical studies that are completely meaningless and vague. It’s amazing to me that scientists will spend years of their lives studying the future effects of the color blue on children between the ages of 10 and 12. Probably once a month I hear about a medical study and I think, “Really?” That happened this week when I read that men’s testosterone increases when the candidate they vote for gets elected. The scientists in the study also found out that men who vote for the losing politician experience decreased testosterone. This was reported on FOX News. I read the article all the way through and felt my testosterone level drop. Duke neuroscientist Kevin LaBar did the study. I wanted to reach out to him and suggest he study what happens to liberals’ testosterone levels when they read information from conservative news organizations. CNN, a rather balanced reporting outfit, reported last week that survivors of the Holocaust are at a greater risk for cancer. A related study said Jewish women suffer a higher rate of breast cancer than other women. The research from the University of Haifa concluded that because the Holocaust survivors suffered severe calorie restrictions, they were more prone to getting cancer. I’m not making this up. They’re recent studies. I’ve read studies that said that electric shavers can cause cancer, so I stopped electric shaving. I once read a study that concluded
that mice live twice as long if they’re on a severe calorie-restricted diet. All I could think about was these poor mice starving to death in a cage. I once read an article, and I’m not kidding, that said that people who eat fast food are more likely to suffer from depression. I’ve read research that concluded that reading too much research can cause anxiety. It’s crazy. Why does nobody say that? If you read a headline that says, “Study suggests a link between men who pee in urinals and increased risk of testicular cancer,” nobody with any authority says, “This is dumb.” What’s so sad is that scientists could be having such a better time doing what they do. Who the hell wants to interview fast-food eaters all day and listen to them whine? What were they thinking with that idea? Suggesting ideas for research would be an awesome job for me. This is what a conversation in a research boardroom would be like if I were involved. “What’s on the agenda today, people?” “Well, David suggested a new study this morning that really got us excited.” “What is it?” “He wants to research whether there is a link between Sports Illustrated bikini models and cardio vascular health. We’ll need to bring in some bikini models and get a heartrate monitor. It will cost $1 million.” “Sounds important. Call the American Heart Association.” This could be my calling.

North Hempstead to become Town Supervisor there. North Hempstead was near bankruptcy from a declining income and a bloated bureaucracy. Slash and burn in heroic numbers was the only way to go. Zwirn did that and North Hempstead survived. He therefore was perfectly suited to do that in East Hampton too and as a start, to his credit, had even refused to put on the ballot any Democratic councilmen who served in the government being thrown out. Wilkinson, by contrast, was a longtime executive—the Personnel Manager—for the Walt Disney Company. He would evaluate hiring and firing and make sure employees were both happy and the best for their jobs. He’s had limited experience in dealing with town budgets or business finance. Nevertheless, Wilkinson won in a walk. Why? Because Zwirn was the Democrat and the Democrats made the problem. Zwirn might have been the better bet to fix all this, but there was just too big a job to do to risk a continuation of the cronyism put in by the Democrats during the last six years. Sweep the Dems out. Give Wilkinson and the Republicans the reins. We hope he is up to it. As for Throne-Holst, she has less of a job to do and I predict with consensus, she will likely pull the town through the hard time and into a new era pretty easily. We wish both Throne-Holst and Wilkinson the best.

The 2009 Harvest: What To Get Excited About
Photo s by Lenn Thompson
Over The Barrel... with Lenn Thompson
on brix (a measurement of the sugar content in grapes) when discussing ripeness and the success of a vintage, but that’s only part of the equation. Grapes may come in with a little less sugar this year, but the extra time they’ve spent on the vines (well into November) enabled the flavors to develop beyond what the brix might indicate. Look for whites and rose. Because they ripen sooner, white wine grapes fared slightly better than reds. Acidity will be higher this year, but if the in-progress whites I tasted yesterday at Paumanok Vineyards are any indication, not harshly so. That acidity will also be apparent in rose wines – and there will be a lot of it made with red grapes not quite ripe enough for red wine. It’s going to be a fun spring as some of these wines are released. Great value reds ahead. Few wineries will be making their “top” reds this year – their reserves, their grand vintage, their first labels – but here is an upside to that. It means that fruit from their oldest and best blocks will go into the “regular” bottlings, upping their quality even in a year like this one. I think we’ll see some great wines in the $20 range from the 2009 vintage.

This could also be a very good vintage for sparkling wine because of the natural acidity left in the grapes. Of course, these wines won’t be released for a few years. Focus on the lucky and the best producers. Some very good wineries were hit hard by the springtime weather, including some devastating hail storms, and some lesser producers probably didn’t handle the difficult season we well as those with stronger vines and better vineyard practices. So, in years like 2009, make sure that you seek out varieties from the top echelon of Long Island wineries, like Bedell Cellars, Channing Daughters Winery, Paumanok Vineyards, Roanoke Vineyards, Shinn Estate Vineyards and Wolffer Estate. This isn’t an exhaustive list, but it is a good start. Ignore generalizations – even mine. The fact is, we won’t know until the spring and beyond how good the 2009 Long Island wines will be, so take any wide-sweeping predictions for what they are: predictions. There will be less new wine, but the quality of that wine is still to be determined. But, based on what I’ve tasted, there is a reason to be excited – particularly for the whites.

Save some small lots for late harvest dessert wines; by the time you read this, the 2009 Long Island wine grape harvest will be complete. The end of harvest is a comfort for growers who struggled with what might go down as one of the region’s strangest growing seasons ever. But after speaking with several grape growers and winemakers throughout harvest, I can guarantee you this: The downfall of the 2009 Long Island wine vintage was greatly exaggerated. While it’s true that 2009 won’t go down as one of the best, easiest growing seasons on record (this isn’t 2007, folks), I expect there to be some excellent wines made. In that vein, I offer these thoughts on the 2009 vintage. It’s still early. Grape juice is still bubbling in tanks and tanks, on its way to becoming Long Island wine – but a few facts and guesstimates can still be pointed out. 2009 was not a “bad” vintage; it was a weird one. Sure, the season started out poorly with a cool, wet spring and a June marred by 20-plus days of rain, but what fruit set and survived has developed well. It’s about flavors. Many so-called experts focus

Special Section: A Well Designed Home and Decorating Philosophy By Tamara Matthews-Stephenson A well decorated home is often one that is rich in detail and reveals the passions of the dwellers bit by wonderfully detailed bit. It does not matter how much money is spent or how many resources are used, if the little accoutrements that should pull it all together fall flat, the feeling is off. It is an intangible, and although there are many different style preferences and approaches to design, most of us seem to know a well designed home when we see it. Let me indulge in a little decorating philosophy for a moment, because I think our home should be where we retreat to kick off our shoes, relax and can truly be ourselves. At the same time, many of us want our home to reflect who we are, or, rather, the “us” on a sunny, spring day. These two demands can be a tall order to achieve, so it is good to keep in mind that the design of a home does not stop when the professionals leave. We can hire a high-end interior designer to find the 18th century armoire or the special fabric for the custom sofa, or we can simply opt for the retail budget version ourselves. Either way, we can best inject our personality into our home through per-
sonal details. These items, whether a unique lamp, an antique pair of candlesticks, a collection of vintage china, a decorative pillow or a collage of picture frames from our favorite travel moments, help affirm who we are, where we came from and who we want to be. I admit that I enjoy the little details of interior design, sometimes more than the “big ticket” items. When I leave someone’s home that I have found to be truly beautiful, the small details are usually what I later recall most vividly. Some of my favorite spaces
are ones in which the homeowner weaves the “good bones” of interior design with smaller decorative items that they made, inherited or purchased – the “finishing touches.” It feels authentic when accessories come to rest on our sofas, desks, walls and tables slowly, over time, rather than in one splash after a single shopping spree. The details of our lives should unfold around us gradually and through our interests and memories. These items can bring us joy with a single look, and remind us of a special travel experience, a grandparent or a nostalgic time in our childhood. A good example of this is a family vacation we took over 15 years ago to the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. We rented a house that had hundreds of large conch shells surrounding the property and the owners told us their favorite tradition was for their guests to take a few of the shells home with them upon departing. I keep those shells in my house, resting on books or on top of guest towels as a reminder of the trip we took to that special island. During these uncertain, belt-tightening times, we (continued on page 32)

By David Lion Rattiner The Dan’s Papers Best of The Best Award is one of the most recognized awards on Long Island for small businesses. The award is only achieved when a business has the ability to demonstrate excellence in both what they sell and the service that they provide. The readers of Dan’s Papers are among the finest in the world, and it is they who decide which businesses get to earn the right to say that they are “The Best of the Best.” When it comes to your home, you want to have only the best work done. Your home is your castle, it is where you live, it is where you cook, it is where you share time with your family. Having the best people working on your home is an investment that will pay off for years into the future. Cabinetry Design Two companies on the East End involved with the home that have been able to earn the coveted Dan’s Papers Best of the Best Award for their business. One is Cabinetry Design Center owned by Louis Giorgio. Giojio has been in business for 27 years and for the last 26, he has catered to the wholesale division of the business, offering his expertise to builders. In the last year, however, he has also been doing business as retail for homes as well and the word has gotten around that his service and quality is the “Best of the Best.” The quality of his work has earned him clients such as the Ritz Carlton Residences in White Plains and Stanford Connecticut as well as the Panoramic View Luxury Residences in Montauk. Giorgio explains that what he does to set himself apart has to do with quality and service. “The designs we do are very different from each other. Our slogan is ‘origin of excellence’ and that’s what sets us apart. We provide fantastic service and design as well as excellent materials and product.” When you walk into the showroom in Westhampton Beach, you are stunned by the quality of the work you see. If you dream in kitchens, the Cabinetry Design Center can make your dream come true. For absolutely gorgeous, custom-made kitchens that are functional, unique and well made, this is a place that you are going to want to pay a visit. On top of the obvious quality is the service.

Eastendhomefinder.com Has Arrived By Barry Sands Placing your home on the market today is a daunting task. Most buyers are savvy when it comes to researching locations and properties online. This capability has expedited the process of looking for a home or investment. The Internet has helped buyers zero in on homes they want to see, and helped agents tailor showings so that no time is wasted. If you’re a seller working with an agent, there’s no upfront, out-of-pocket cost to you for advertising – the agent and agency are responsible for that, and through their incredible branding, marketing and brick-and-mortar power, they have buyers and sellers coming to them. Working with a realtor is, of course, something that you should absolutely do when selling your home. But in this buyers market, it would behoove sellers to set a small fund aside for additional marketing on top of what your agent provides to increase the chances of selling your home. You can do this easily in the Hamptons with a new website called www.eastendhomefinder.com, which is a brand new, robust section on danshamptons.com. I experienced marketing a property on my own in another state. I listed it for rent because the market just doesn’t warrant a sale there right now. To help the property management company rent my home, I took out my own online real estate ad. Why did I do that? Simple, I wanted exposure that would set my home apart from the thousands on the market. The property management company, which is also a real estate agency, listed my home in one online website (their own), as well as the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). My home’s listing reminded me of the old children’s book, “Where’s Waldo?” It was buried in all the other
listings and I wanted it to stand out. So I provided detailed descriptions of each room, the property and special amenities, and included 20 different photos. Bet you can’t guess how we found eight out of the 10 prospects inside of 30 days, one of whom rented the home. That’s right, eight of them came through my online ad. I passed all prospects on to the property management company so they could handle the negotiations. If you’re placing your home on the market to sell or rent, there are some basic facts you need to communicate. Again, if you’re working with an agent, partner with them to make sure they have the information they need to market the property on their own websites and in media campaigns. In either case, let’s start first with the simple stats. Make sure you include this info, at the very least: Number of Bedrooms; Number of bathrooms; Square footage (include room sizes wherever it makes sense); Number of rooms; Type of yard (fenced, pool, landscaped, wooded etc). Type of Home (Single story, two story, raised ranch, Contemporary, Colonial, Salt Box, Farmhouse, Victorian, etc), furnished or unfurnished (if it’s a rental), type of kitchen, type of fuel, estimated property taxes, school district, lot size and others. Now how about some potential amenities that might attract a buyer’s interest? These are just a few of the dozens that your home might offer. Cable/Internet access, wet bar, built-ins (bookcases,
storage, entertainment center), finished basement/playroom, gourmet appliances, central air, central vacuum, surround sound, walk-in and finished or custom closets, hardwood, tile, stone, carpeting, upgraded moldings, landscape and lighting, pool or spa, type of neighborhood. All of this information is critical as a first snapshot of the house. But probably the most important piece of the puzzle when listing your home for sale or rent is the photography. When I’m doing research of homes online, I rarely click on one that doesn’t show photos. Market research shows that homes listed with photos get viewed 75% more times than those without. So let’s talk about photos. The worst-case scenario is no photo at all. The next worst case is one or a couple photos that show some weird angle of house exterior or part of the yard. There’s a red flag that the seller doesn’t feel the home shows well, and has had to get a bit creative. Some listings show one or two photos of a beach or a backyard, neither of which tells me anything about the home itself. Buyers or renters want to see what they’ll get for their money. A home without photos, or with just a couple, is not competitive. Having owned many homes over the years and even having built a few, I consider myself an experienced buyer. Here are the types of photos I like to see when doing my research: Master bedroom and master bathroom, kitchen (several views), family room, media room, great room, office, den, secondary bedrooms and bathrooms, hallways, two story ceilings or raised ceilings, windows etc., front and back yard.

Cat-Friendly Furniture By Ellen Dioguardi Enthusiastic dog owners tend to buy their dogs clothes, fancy carrying cases or indestructible toys that can cost close to $50. Cat owners seem to lean toward furniture. This tendency may simply be out of self-defense; after all, furniture is the one “human” thing all cats like to claim (and mark) as their own. Furniture scratching is not just a claw grooming exercise it’s also a way to lay claim to the object, and a multi-cat household will often have some competition going on. Most indoor-cat owners have scratching posts. All cats need to scratch their claws and if they’re indoor cats they need a safe place to do this. It not only helps keep their claws trimmed but also provides a muscle flexing, which they need. A scratching post is a must for any cat friendly household. I’ve owned a dozen or more (the sisal wrapped ones with a large base are a favorite), but I’ve also had three different cat “cubes” and a couple of cat beds. Of all the furniture we’ve purchased (for the cats who currently run our lives) my favorite is the cat tree. These five, six and even eight-foot tall poles with different perches on them are cat magnets. The first two I ever owned were covered in a low shag carpet. While they weren’t very attractive, the cats loved them. They’d climb, scratch, sleep and jump up and down on the different levels. They couldn’t leave them alone. Unfortunately, after about a year, each tree was pretty much destroyed. While they’re investments worth making.
Right around the time I was deciding we needed to trash the second cat tree, my husband came home with the happy news that he’d won a new one in a silent auction for only $100 (prices for over 60” trees range from $100 to about $250). All he could tell me about the tree was that it was made out of wood and wasn’t covered in carpet. I was skeptical. When the box arrived I was stunned to see what I now know is the Lotus Cat Tree from The Refined Feline. This cat tree was unlike any other; Frank Lloyd Wright could have designed it, with its clean lines and elegant look. “Form follows function,” indeed. This was a tree that cats and their humans could like. We set it up and in no time our very large Maine Coons were fighting over who got the top perch. I will warn you, the actual price on the Lotus Cat Tree hovers around $350, but along with being good looking, it’s very well made. Along with cat stairs and cat condos, your local pet store will certainly have the traditional cat trees in stock. These carpeted cat gymnasiums have all sorts of configurations. All have different “decks” for the cats to perch on, and many have small enclosures or oval beds where the cats can curl up to sleep, play with dangling toys or hide out from the world. Sitting in the proverbial “catbird seat” is an enviable position, and one most felines seem to relish. I enthusiastically suggest you check out the variety of cat furniture available. It might convince your cat to leave your stuff alone.
(continued from page 28)
have the opportunity to value quality versus quantity. It becomes a perfect time to focus on the beauty of a single item, and relish in that. One optimistic approach to this new frugality is to acquire only what resonates with us. Or, better yet, we can comb through our collection of acquisitions and pull out those items that bring us joy because of their artisanship, beauty or the fond memories they provoke. It can be an opportunity to dispense with some of the trendy, disposable stuff we may have bought in an impulsive moment. Having a well-appointed home is often about good editing, because as all avid collectors can attest, without editing a home can feel cluttered, leaving the eye no space to take in the details and the overall surroundings. Every once in a while, to give a room a fresh perspective, I sweep through and take all the decorative items off the fireplace mantels, tables, bookshelves and even walls. I walk around the house and move items to different spots as if a “stylist” in my own home, changing up the landscape. Because my design ideologies and color schemes all work together, it is easy to move stuff from room to room. I have to admit there are little areas of my home that annoy me. For instance, the leg on one of the antique, upholstered chairs in my living room is a bit loose, and if you sit too heavily to one side, the chair leans a bit. This piece of furniture has remained in this condition for 10 years. I have a Rolodex full of furniture repair people who could certainly have it fixed in a day. If I philosophize for a moment, maybe I allow these little quirks to stay as they are, because these imperfections peppered about are what help to make it my very own, unique home.

Neighbors and Guinea Hens My neighbors have guinea hens and chickens. I like listening to the rooster in the morning as a counter to the turkeys in the woods. The rooster’s crow reminds me that it is morning, and the turkeys’ gobbles make me laugh. But it is the guinea hens I sort of envy my neighbors for. I would like to raise some guinea hens to peck around my property. They eat ticks, but don’t scratch around as much as turkeys and chickens. One year, a 16-member turkey family repeatedly gleaned the woods around my house, kicking up leaves everywhere they went. They are very intelligent and have a complex set of calls to communicate all kinds of things. In our case it was probably about the dogs and whether it was safe for the young turkeys to come out of the oaks and start hunting down their breakfast. The whole flock loved my driveway and the clover in the lawn; they practically came up to the door if the dogs were not out. But just as suddenly as they appeared, they left. I still see them around the neighborhood from time to time. The hens do not seem to be as bright as the turkeys. They are always in the road. Someone crashed into the cemetery fence a while back and I suspect that the accident occurred because the driver tried to avoid hitting the flock’s laggard. One day we went out to find one recently killed by a car, its feet sticking up in the air. The rest of the guinea hens had run into the woods and were squawking loudly. A friend of ours had just come over, so I called back to my husband and told him to check the friend’s car for feathers. No evidence was found, so the culprit could have been anybody. I have not seen them since, so maybe they learned to stay out of the road. There are several colors of guinea hens: lavender, grey, white, speckled. They are all pretty, but way too noisy for my husband’s taste. He lived with guinea hens for a while and even saw a hawk try to steal one from the yard. As it lifted its prey up into the sky, all the other guinea hens rushed under the deck and caused a racket. The hawk did not have the strength to fly off with the hen, and it fell to the ground and then joined its brethren under the deck. I would not worry so much about hawks here, even though we found a sick red-tailed hawk, rehabilitated it and let it go again. It is my dogs that would give the hens perhaps a bit too much exercise–and heart attacks. As far as the dog is concerned, anything that
moves is fair game to chase. The cats have long ago learned to sit down when the dog challenges them, or head for the cover of a chair and then turn around and give the dog a whack on the nose. I am not sure that guinea hens can figure out a similar kind of strategy. And poultry may require daily care that adds to chores we already have. But what if they ate up all the ticks? That might be worth the effort. Of course, we might lose a few to foxes and raccoons. That would be heartbreaking. The dogs don’t keep the nighttime predators at bay either. Like the turkeys, they know the dogs’ schedule. So housing might be necessary. My other neighbor has his chicken house door, a little Swiss-style chalet, on a timer. It opens in the morn-

So there you have it. My recommendations aren’t all inclusive, but they’re sure to increase your chances of selling or renting quicker. More importantly, it’s surprisingly inexpensive to do this online. For the property I mentioned earlier, I closed the rental deal within 30 days, and the renters moved in within 90 days. (I kept marketing my home the entire time in case something fell through). I rented for $2,500 per month and spent a grand total of $425 of my own money online. Do the math. That’s a little over 1% of the annual rental fee. And I purchased a premium ad – a featured home listing. I could’ve spent even less, but with all the homes on the market, I wanted to stand out. (By the way, over the course of those 90 days when I kept my home in front of potential renters, we got another 12 qualified prospects and were ready if anything went south on us with the renter we first closed.) In this market, you’d be crazy not to use a realtor to help market and sell your home, but you’d also be crazy not to additionally market it yourself online at eastendhomefinder.com or let your real estate agent know about the new site so that your property is getting the maximum exposure it needs to sell.
ing to let the chickens out, and closes at dusk, eliminating the need to round up all the birds and shut them in for the night. Other friends have dug chainlink enclosures about 18” deep in the ground to keep critters from digging their way to a nice chicken dinner. And then there is the eggloo, a plastic iglooshaped chicken coop that can be moved around the yard with an attached run. I think I would want freerange guinea hens, though, so they could cover as much territory as possible in their tick-eating pursuits. I’ll just have to wander down the road and see how my neighbor keeps his guinea hens. While I’m there, I will inquire about the constant cackling.

For God’s Sake, Go Out! (The Kids will be Okay) I’ve just learned about another option for childcare that I found too good to be true. The Grace Presbyterian Church in Water Mill has something called Second Saturdays Out – a free sitting service on the second Saturday of each month, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. Yes, free. You register on line (it’s first come first served), show up with the child for sign-in at 5:30 p.m., and go out. Alone. Or with your partner. But without your child. I called Grace Church pastor Rev. Mark Middlekauff, to find out about the service and religion instruction I was sure our son would sit through for the next four hours. “There is none,” he said. “On a Sunday morning for service, yes, but there’s no spiritual content at Second Saturdays, other than it showing that we love God and love our neighbors.” Middlekauff said that before the program was started three years ago by the church, which is fairly new out here, they realized that a huge part of the mission was “to be a church that blesses our community in some way.” That meant not only being there for their own congregants, but for all. “We do it for the community, not for us,” he said of the program, which is tailored to children, but is in the service of parents and their relationships. “We recognized that marriages have challenges. It’s expensive to live out here, parents need time to get away,” said Middlekauff. “There are a lot of things in our society that curse families and lead to brokenness. Our purpose is to bless families.” Asked how he was using the word “bless” he said, Photo by Susan Galardi

You’ll watch as they suddenly change the subject, pretend to get a phone call, or give you a blank stare and slink away. On the East End, reliable sitters with their own transportation are hot commodities in limited supply. Parents who find good ones are loath to give them up. We’ve lived here full time for almost six years, and still couldn’t go out on Halloween night because none of our babysitters was available. The playing field opens up if you lower your age requirements to teenagers whose parents can drive them to and fro. Some of the high schools out here even offer babysitting classes and certificates. That’s just not a route we’ve been comfortable with yet with a six-year-old, but many parents rely on teens to allow them a precious night out. As our son has gotten older, the babysitter choice has gotten both easier and harder. Easier in that we don’t have to adhere to our standards of someone with 20 years of experience with babies. Harder in that, the older he gets, the more of a say he feels he has in his companion for the evening. We play into it as parents who “worship at the tabernacle of our children” (I thank Dan’s writer TJ Clemente for that one). But really – who wants to spend an evening alone with someone you don’t know or don’t like? At our son’s age, it’s also easier to leave him with friends at a play date – but bedtime is tricky in most households, and when kids start the routine at 7 p.m., a late night is tricky for their parents. You can avoid the bedtime issue, but you better like early bird specials and matinees. Option number three? Take the kid with you. It will kill a date night, limit options, an put you back in early bird world. But it does save the cost of a sitter.
“to create an opportunity for fruit to grow. When there’s a blessing of crop, it means to care for it. You give it sun, tend it, cultivate it. That’s what we mean by blessing families.” Middlekauff is of the belief that blessing the relationship between parents can only be positive for the children. He said all are welcome, “children of any denomination, any religious faith or lack of faith,” as well as spouses, same sex couples with children and single parents. “We get some single moms who drop off the kids and go home to shower, clean the house or just hang out with friends.” Second Saturdays Out, which limits attendance, is staffed by volunteers who are “members of our church who love children and have bought into the vision,” said Middlekauff. The evening is for kids from four months to 13 years old, who are separated into ageappropriate groups to do crafts, group games, Wii sports, or enjoy free playtime with toys and a snack. There are a few requirements. Parents have to have a cell phone and appropiate the numbers with the caretakers, children must be fed dinner before they arrive, and little ones must be accompanied by a bag with diapers and bottles. Sick children will be asked to come back when they’re better. Then, it’s off to the races — for parents and children. “Kids don’t want to leave,” said Middlekauff. “They have a fun time.” And the church members have a good time too. “We don’t make money,” he said. “We do it to show the love of God, that God cares for families.” To register and for more info: email@example.com, SecondSaturdaysOut.com, 631-259-3516

Kurt Billing Loop Trail On the morning of October 29, I met the Southampton Trails Preservation Society’s trail maintenance crew at the new parking area for the Kurt Billing Loop Trail on Sebonac Road. There were six people; some came from nearby places in Southampton, but others came from as far away as Northport and Sayville. We drove the short distance up to North Magee Street, where we turned right and headed north to a driveway that is an easement giving access to a trail that leads to the Kurt Billing Loop Trail. We walked to the end of the driveway, where the trail is marked with red plastic owls. A few members of the crew headed down this trail, pushing a lawnmower to cut the brush away. Other volunteers walked ahead of the mower and used loppers and saws to cut tree limbs that would impede progress along the trail. In the other direction, looking out on the road from the driveway across North Magee Street and slightly south of its opening, is a section of the Tuckahoe Swamp Preserve. The Paumanok Path is a short distance directly west of here; if you walk north on North Magee you will come to a formal access to the Paumanok Path marked by a kiosk. This is part of an Eagle Scout project dramatically improving the trails in the Tuckahoe Swamp Preserve and the section of Paumanok Path running between White’s Lane and Millstone Brook Road. The project also includes mahogany bridges and a cedar bench. It is the work of scout Bobby Scheuch.
The rest of us drove north on North Magee Street up to “five corners,” where West Neck Road, North Magee Street and Millstone Brook Road intersect. We turned right onto Millstone Brook Road, then right again onto Big Fresh Pond Road. Just before the Nature Conservancy’s Big Woods Preserve on the left side of the road, we turned right onto Big Fresh Pond Road and drove along the edge of Big Fresh Pond. Just past the intersection with Missapogue Court, we arrived at the Kurt Billing Memorial Plaque on the left (north) side of the road. To the right of the plaque is a short, steep trail leading down to the water, which is an informal canoe and kayak launch site. The Peconic Land Trust acquired this wooded waterfront parcel in 1986 with the assistance of local residents, including Kurt Billing who took out a personal loan to facilitate the deal. The trail continues on the other side of the road, leading south to the Kurt Billing Loop Trail. STPS Vice President of Hike Scheduling Tony Garro, President Glorian Berk, Co-Vice President of Trail Planning and Maintenance Susan Colledge and I, headed south along a trail marked with pink ribbons. We nailed plastic rectangular blazes with emblems of blue owls onto the trees, and cut brush and branches away from the trail. We followed the trail back to where it branched off of the Red Owl Trail that leads, after a short distance, to the northern apex of the Kurt Billing Trail, marked with yellow-painted rectangles. If you follow the loop trail in either direction,

CLOSING SOUTHAMPTON LOCATION
it will take you to the access trail marked with yellow triangles and back to the trailhead on Sebonac Road. Michael Baldwin, Southampton Town’s Geographic Information Systems Manager, reports that the interactive map showing approximately 300 miles of trails in Southampton is now accessible on the Internet. The map can be accessed in three modes: topographic, base map and satellite view. I like the blue “i” function that gives information when you click on an area of the map. The arrows and slider for magnification are easy to use, and I look forward to there being a way of differentiating between formally marked trails and unmarked trails in the future. Visiting http://trailsmap.southamptontownny.gov will help you follow my trail descriptions in the future. You will have to wait to see part of the trail I described in this article on the Internet map because the town has not yet acquired a key parcel for this connecting trail, but if you visit the kiosk at the trailhead, you will be able to see it there. This is an attractive and informative kiosk. Mike Bottini created the interpretive text, Diane Hewett did the map and design and Fossil Graphics in Deer Park fabricated it. On behalf of the hiking community, I would like to extend my thanks to STPS (http://southamptontrails.org) for taking the lead in facilitating this project, and to Mike for the excellent trail segments that he designed to complete this loop. I wish I could tell Kurt how much I enjoyed the exploratory hikes we took together and how fondly I will always remember him, as will so many others who were lucky enough to have known him.

Thanksgiving Is Moments Away
With Thanksgiving moments away it’s time to think about what we can prepare and do ahead to be ready for one of our most joyous and revered holidays. With a cornucopia of colorful winter squashes, hardy root vegetables, leafy greens and apples galore in my larder I had the makings of a harvest soup. Perfect I thought to make ahead and freeze. When pureed, the soup a beautiful color orange, thick and satisfying, spiked with a bit of cayenne and sweetened with a bit of honey, and if you like, a small amount of cream, was creamily delicious. Elizabeth Alston’s cranberry apple cake, which she refers to in her book, Best Baking, Harper Perrenial, calls this-low-in-fat cake, ‘a good keeper.’ Just a couple of Granny smiths with typical nutmeg and cinnamon seasonings, fresh or frozen cranberries and chopped pecans or walnuts bakers will find this a simple to do, do-ahead apple cake. Somehow Thanksgiving is one of the few holidays that I believe even non-cooks look forward to cooking – this after all is a celebration of our uniquely American holiday – Thanksgiving – for which we are grateful.
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves 2 tablespoons heavy cream, optional 1. Peel the squash, rutabaga, parsnip, carrots and apples and cut into 1/2-inch dice. Put the olive oil and butter in a large, 5-5 1/2 quart saucepan and heat until butter melts and butter foam subsides. Put in the chopped onion and stir to coat about 3 minutes. Add the vegetables and apple dice and stir to mix with the onion. Season with salt and pepper and stir again. Cover the mixture with a square of waxed paper then cover the pot. Turn heat low and sweat the vegetables for 7 minutes. Remove and discard waxed paper, add stock or broth (if homemade stock season to taste with salt). Bring liquid to a boil, adjust heat and simmer the soup for 25-30 minutes until vegetables are tender. Season soup with cayenne and honey and stir to mix. 2. Let soup cool then puree in a blender or a hand held immersion blender. Soup can be prepared up to 2-3 days ahead or frozen for 2-3 weeks ahead. When ready to serve, reheat or defrost soup; stir in cream if using and reheat over low heat until bubbly hot. Serve with homemade croutons.
FALL HARVEST SOUP This Perfectly balanced soup boasts the colors and flavors of autumn. Serves 8 1 large or 2 small butternut squash, about 2 pounds 1 large rutabaga, about 1/2 pound 1 large parsnip, about 1/2 pound 2-3 carrots, about 1/2 pound 2 large Jonagold apples, about 1 pound 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1 onion, finely chopped Coarse (kosher) salt and freshly ground pepper 8 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade or lowsodium canned 1/4 teaspoon cayenne 2-3 teaspoons honey
GRETCHEN’S CRANBERRY-APPLE CAKE Author Elizabeth Alston calls this ‘low-in-fat cake a “good keeper”. Makes 12-16 portions. 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 medium-size Granny Smith apples 1 3/4 cups packed dark brown sugar 1/2 cup vegetable oil 2 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries 1 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped coarse Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 10- or 12-cup Bundt pan or 10 x 4-inch Tube pan. 1. Place the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon into a bowl. Stir to mix well. 2. Quarter and core the apples (no need to peel). Cut into 1/4-inch chunks (you will need about 2 cups). 3. Put the brown sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla into a large bowl and beat smooth with a wire whisk. Using a wooden spoon, sir in the flour mixture. Stir in the cranberries, apples and nuts. The batter will be stiff. 4. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour and 5 to 15 minutes. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool for 30 minutes. Loosen the edges of the cake and invert on the rack. Let cool completely. The cake can be wrapped airtight and stored overnight at room temperature before serving or freeze up to 2-3 weeks. Reprinted from Elizabeth Alston’s Best Baking, Harper Perennial.

DAN'S PAPERS, November 13, 2009 Page 39 www.danshamptons.com
Arts & Entertainment This week’s cover by Keith Mantell is not just a “pretty picture.” While the colors are brilliant and inviting and the composition is arresting, especially the background/foreground arrangement, another salient element is in play. The spectator’s eye is attracted to both the horizon and the path on the painting’s lower right-hand side. Thus, the picture plane is extended, suggesting several points of view. Q: Several aspects of your cover evoke questions. For example, the colors are so unusual. How did you accomplish that? A: I used lots more glazing in this picture. In the tree on the left with shadows, I built up transparent glazes and layers to get an effect – a “pop” effect. Q: Another evocative aspect about the painting is its style. How would you describe it? A: First, I treat colors as abstract, yet I’m a realist (although I don’t want to be pigeonholed as a realist). For example, my tree on the left is abstract, but it conveys realism. However, I don’t apply the paint as a realistic painter. The application has to grow, to be an organic progression. Q: Speaking of progression, describe the order you follow when painting. A: I have no structure. I can’t go step-by-step. I just think, Let’s see what happens. Q: So how would you characterize your way of working? A: I look at the whole image and put things together that work. I put a bit of spice here, another spice there. I make up my own recipe and come up with a different taste. I may put more fennel in the dish than someone else. Q: I get it. Your paintings are like fusion cooking. A: Yes, fusion cooking makes it less run-of-themill. I don’t want to be one of those run-of-the-mill artists. Q: Let’s do an exercise. Like a recipe, suggest how you would do a painting combining different artists’ styles. A: Take a Milton Avery and combine him with Thomas Hart Benton, Rodin and Calder. Q: When you look at your own art, what do you see? What question do you ask? A: Is it a successful piece in its own right? Q: In your cover painting, what specific elements did you consider? A: The shadow coming across the road, the influences that Serra had on my work (forms and shapes), working with the unnatural orange color to take it in a different direction from traditional landscape. Q: What are some other influences on your work? A: I search the whole of art history, but I’m more excited by contemporary art. Q: Besides being a committed artist, I know you care a lot about the state of art today. A: Yes, I do. I don’t think people should be afraid to buy art, especially from emerging artists. They should take a chance. Q: That’s an important issue. Let’s talk about this more the next time I interview you. A: I’d like to. –Marion Wolberg Weiss Mr. Mantell has a new web site: www.keithmantell.com.
Art Commentary Titles, Arrangement by Marion Wolberg Weiss
Carolyn Conrad, “St Birdadette” This critic depends on exhibit titles for clues about a curator’s intention. How a show is arranged usually yields other helpful hints, providing the curator is especially competent. The current exhibit at Amagansett’s Pamela Williams Gallery hits the mark on both counts – its title and organization suggest the works’ meaning. Curator Williams has kept the exhibit relatively small, which always helps to keep a sharp focus on a theme. Many exhibits get off track when works that don’t reinforce the theme are included. In other shows, the meaning is diluted when the arrangement of the artworks doesn’t reflect the stated perspective. The title, “Portrait and Presence,” may mean diverse things, but the pieces themselves infer that identity (presence) is just as diverse. Consider the “faceless” portraits of Ivan Kustura and Carolyn Conrad, where features are in shadow (Conrad) or figures are standing with their backs to the camera (Kustura). Kustura’s “hard-edge” images are surreal, to be sure, and they are the ones that Williams highlights with their bold placement on the wall. It’s as if this kind of “presence” predominates, and we are all living in a surreal world even though other realities might exist. In Kustura’s world, geometric forms restrict and entrap us; our identity is formatted and predeter-

Ivan Kustura “She Came in Through the Bathroom Window” mined. Similarly, Conrad’s view of the figure features head and shoulders only, identities that are also restricted and not “whole.” The faceless images may have their backs turned as well, like Kustura’s. It’s difficult to tell: Are we seeing the front or the back of the human form? Conrad’s “Dust to Dust” suggests another lack of “wholeness.” The figure is composed of lint fragments from an electric dryer. Identity is called into question, too, with the title “Dust to Dust.” Are we the same (continued on next page)

when we are born as when we die? Conversely, identity/presence is defined with detail and boldness in works by Victor Friedman, Pete Turner and Melora Griffis. Both Friedman’s and Turner’s photographs are placed side-by-side so the similarities are more apparent. Yet, at first glance, their subjects seem so different. Friedman’s blackand-white shots show outcasts and misfits where setting/context is important, recalling Larry Clark’s teenagers in Oklahoma. Turner’s photographs present a sharp contrast to Friedman’s dreary-like pictures with their colorful Mozambique women, cut off from their immediate environment. Perhaps Friedman wants to emphasize the subjects’ “essence” regardless of any background details, unlike Turner’s men whose identities are so closely connected to the surroundings. Griffis’ paintings are filled with ambiguous detail as well as full-length figures, their angel-like faces reflecting a spiritual demeanor. In a way, they are as surreal as Kustura’s subjects, their identities masked by a lack of context. Sculptures by David Suter and Alexandra Limpert add to the concept of identity, especially Suter’s “Pompeii,” where a woman looks into a mirror. “Portraits and Presence” will be on view at the Pamela Williams Gallery until Nov. 29.

Letters GOOD QUOGUE Dear Dan, You keep beating up on the Quogue police. As a 27-year resident of Quogue, I have had four incidents with the police and no tickets. 1. Seeing if my Jaguar really got up to 60 miles an hour in 3.5 seconds, an officer stopped me and said, “slow it down.” 2. Doing 40 in a 30 zone and no full stop at a stop sign. Again “be careful and slow it down.” 3. I got a flat in Remsenburg on a Saturday night and a friend, unfamiliar with the road drove me home and was crossing the double line because he was unfamiliar with the road. A policewoman stopped us, I explained the situation and she led us home. 4. My car broke down on Library Road and an officer stopped, opened my hood and helped me get help. I think what happens on Route 104 is that people come speeding off Sunrise Highway and can’t adjust to the 30 or 40 mile speed limit. On another subject regarding the Film Festival, why can’t the grid you publish one day after the Festival starts be printed a week in advance. It’s very tough to find a full schedule ahead of time with brief summaries so you can decide what you want to see. Sincerely, Mort Gordon Quogue Via e-mail Quogue plays favorites. Hopefully that will change now. – DR DEAR CLASS Dear Editor, As someone who has be reading your paper from the very beginning, (4 Xerox pages with a staple), you are hardly are at a loss for something to write about. But just in case that moment should arise, would you consider covering the awful situation between the teachers of Sag Harbor and the school board? These teachers are amazing and have been working without a contract for two years. They have not been treated as professionals and the Board has been disgraceful and unwilling to talk with them. Every Friday morning they march around Pierson, before classes and they picketed several weeks ago after school. Many parents and students attended but it seems that only the locals, very locals, knew about it. This deserves more attention than it has been given. In case if you are wondering, no – I am not a teacher. I am a parent who took her son out of a

small private school, too late to find another private school at that time, decided to put him in the Sag Harbor school for one year and spend that time making applications for private school. He entered fifth grade, and announced to me he wanted to stay. This year he is in seventh grade and doing better than ever. These teachers deserve a whole lot more than they are getting now. Please look into this, just in case you get writers block. Thank you, S.K. Mann Sag Harbor I covered this once in my column, Err a Parent. Couldn’t agree with you more. – SG MUCH APPRECIATED Editor Thanks for the article on the MTA Mobility Tax (Givin’ You the Business: “The Horrors of the MTA Tax,” by T.J. Clemente, Nov. 6 issue). Few articles have been published about this tax. It should have taken center stage, the wrong tax at the wrong time. Instead it ended up as sidebars or space fillers in Newsday and other papers. I sent a letter and emailed Bloomberg since he honored Senator Perkins live and campaigned [for him] as “the right candidate at the right time.” I thoroughly agree with your assessment of this tax. Unfortunately, no one is listening. There are a few out there but generally none of our elected officials care about the people they supposedly represent. Marie Dagostino East Patchogue Via snail Mail It comes in. Maybe we can get some back. -DR INCORRECT Dear Dan, Your article about the new MTA payroll tax has mistakes in facts. The tax rate is .0034 which when applied to $1000 of payroll is $3.40, not $34.00 as stated in the article. It goes on to say that it applies to yearly payrolls of $25,00. The fact is that tax applies to covered employees when their payroll exceeds $2500 in any calendar quarter. Please recheck. Thank you! M. Walter Speonk, NY Via e-mail Ooops. -DR
SHOCKED AND CHAGRINED Dear Dan, I am appalled and dismayed over the courts and South Hampton Town and their criminal, illegal acts in order to extort money out of its citizens and tax payers in order to pay for their 9 million lost funds and inability to balance a budget. It is now a criminal act to have weeds over a certain height on your property. This leaves out plants like wild Astor, Queen Anne’s lace, elderberry, etc ever growing in its natural state abutting wetlands. You can go to jail for this and have a criminal record for life. Wednesday, 10/14/09, in court I witnessed one of the most despicable, ludicrous, criminal actions by the courts against the taxpaying citizens of the town of Southampton and the most unruly citizens including myself. The court DAs and judge were asking me and others to plea barging to fictitious charges that I and other never committed. These acts of false charges by the courts put upon any person appearing in any court in the USA should be a crime punishable by fines and jail time. They have quite a few people pleading guilty to smoke alarms. What has this got to do with weeds and improper pool enclosures, which are punishable by jail time and felony record for life? I said so be it. I’ll not plead guilty to a lie because of my morals and principals. I wanted a trial which I am entitled to, which they refused, I have photographs of Town Hall’s leaves, weeds, broken up side walks, plus debris, paper cups, bags, bottles, tin cans, etc. Not only Town Hall, but also other municipal areas in the township and business properties, all visible from our highways. The highways themselves were overgrown with weeds at times this year. Bernie Madoff was less corrupt; he never threatened anyone with his “have I got a deal for you,” take it or leave it. Not so with the town of Southampton’s phony deals. You will take their phony deals or go to jail, have a criminal record for life or pay thousands of dollars in fines. I kept turning down every phony deal they offered; smoke alarms, parking in a fire zone. They finally said just plain parking ticket, a $250 fine, not criminal. I said I’d take that because there is a hint of truth to it. We the people should be able to vote for the laws we want or don’t want. If this is allowed to continue we’ll soon need a ridiculous permit to sneeze! Yours truly, Eddie Haley Via snail-mail There is quite a bit of real truth to this letter. -DR
Police Blotter Pit Bulls? Pit Bulls! A man in Bridgehampton was speeding on the road and police made an attempt to pull him over. The man then drove to his home nearby and did not pull over on the side of the street when he saw the flashing lights from police. He then went into his house and I’m not making this up, released three pit bulls onto the police officers. He yelled several times at police that he would not give himself up. A 20 minute standoff then took place between police and the man, until he finally submitted to police. He was arrested. Wow. All I can say is wow.
of burglaries with men posing as workers from various utility companies. If you aren’t expecting a utility worker at your home, be suspicious and ask for identification.
Thieves At LIPA Have you ever felt like LIPA was just robbing you blind when you go to pay your electric bill? Well LIPA has problems of its own. The Long Island Power Authority announced last week that customers should be warned to be suspicious when utility workers approach your home and ask for access to it. Recently there have been a couple
Bill Skipping A man in Montauk decided that he was going to leave a restaurant after running up an $80 bill. Police were given the man’s license plate number, which was obtained from a video surveillance camera. Police have launched a full investigation.
Jamaica? A woman in East Hampton told police that she received calls from a man who claimed to be a UPS Supervisor who was trying to arrange delivery of $3.5 million and a new car. When the woman wouldn’t give the man any information, he began to get angry. The woman did not have $3.5 million delivered to her home. She said the man who called had a Jamaican accent.
Coffee Runner A man walked into a Bridgehampton coffee shop and ordered a complicated latte. While the worker was making the latte, the man stole food off of the counter and left the store. The worker tried to track the man down, but couldn’t find him. Time to Go A man on the North Fork fled the scene of a bookstore after backing up the bathroom toilet. The man damaged the plumbing of the toilet by clogging it and causing it to flood. The man left the area before anybody noticed, but the store suffered some significant water damage and will need to make plumbing repairs. Stolen Car A woman in East Hampton reported to police that her truck, worth $25,000, was stolen after she left the keys in the car. The truck has not yet been found. By David Lion Rattiner
