In Defense of Dogs Residents’Dogs Come Near to Banned in East Hampton Village By Dan Rattiner I just got back from San Francisco. My daughter lives out there, right in downtown, with her husband and kids, three dogs, four ducks and two tropical birds. That city is filled with life these days. Among the great prides of the city are the dogs in the town. I spent some time in McLaren Park where there are lots of people with dogs all running around. Dogs are a way of life out there. East Hampton Village last week, however, went still another step in the direction of banning all dogs in town. The mayor and the trustees held another session in which the topic was how bad dogs were and whether the current laws against dogs are okay or need to be made worse. There was no conversation at the meeting about how good dogs are, how they are such loyal companions, how they provide food for the soul and how joyously they run around enjoying the world and all those around them. It’s not a good way to make laws in a village, in my opinion, just focusing on what’s bad, but that is the way East Hampton Village does it. The rich people in this town— many of whom have a sense of entitlement— complain about everything. The mayor and trustees listen. Then they act on the complaints. Oddly, many of the rich in this town have dogs and love them. Yes, they complain about everything, but that just means they complain about everything. It’s not necessary to actually do anything about it. They are going to be pretty
shocked about what the village did at their meeting last week. The meeting began with a report from Edward McDonald, the village beach manager, who said that there were very few complaints on the beaches about dogs this past summer. There were complaints about the weather. But about dogs it’s been pretty quiet. When he finished, trustee Barbara Borsack said, “Well, maybe so, but that doesn’t solve the problem.” And it went on from there.
joke time, during which one of the trustees suggested that they pass a law requiring that people have to get permits to take their dogs out for a walk. Then they got down to business. “The beaches at Wiborg and Egypt look like kitty litter boxes when the beachgoers arrive in the morning at nine,” said Borsack. It was a graphic moment. I’ve been out there at nine in the morning. It is a wild exaggeration. And so the board voted to solve Borsack’s problem. This coming summer, the hours a dog cannot be on a village beach are being expanded to 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. during July and August. And that will just about put a halt to anyone ever bringing a dog out on a beach in that community in daylight. It will also put an end to any of the local Bonackers giving consideration to staying in their native community. Just about every one of them has a black lab or golden they take down to the beach every day to go fishing. Many have already moved away. This is sort of the end for them. What kind of sterile environment are we making out of the Village of East Hampton? Unlike the Village of Sag Harbor, which fought diligently and continues to fight diligently to keep chain stores out, East Hampton has succumbed to them. The downtown, one of the most beautiful villages in the country, is now like Rodeo Drive, with one women’s clothing store after another
Police Chief Larsen said that as far as dogs are concerned, they have a “zero tolerance policy.” In the last year, as you probably know, the village put in a ban on bringing dogs into parks. At the beaches, you can’t bring a dog out there from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in July and August. And Police Chief Larsen said, and repeated it at this meeting, that as far as dogs are concerned, they have a “zero tolerance policy.” Dogs are right up there with drug dealers and sex offenders. A few trustees at the meeting spoke up meekly to say that they felt the current number of laws regarding dogs is just fine. There was then

Facing the Truth about Town Budgets By T.J. Clemente The towns of Southampton and East Hampton are putting the finishing touches on their 2010 budgets by addressing the cold hard truth that there just isn’t enough money to go around. In Southampton, in addition to maintaining the 5% cap on town tax, chopping off 40 town jobs and scrutinizing all expenditures moving forward, supervisor-elect Anna Throne-Holst promises a second reduction in town payroll by perhaps $6 million (mainly through forced attrition) that will reduce the 600-employee Southampton town government by 20%. Also in the plan is “persuading” as many as six department heads that it’s time to “move on.” Due to the cap on the town tax, set at 5%, Southampton is forced to cut services, jobs and programs to balance its budget, as is required by state law. However, in East Hampton there is no such cap, thus the 2009 20% tax increase and 2010’s 10% increase. Although acting supervisor Pete Hammerle and fellow Board member Julia Prince reportedly wanted to explore reducing the number of town employees, lame-duck board members Brad Loewen and Pat Mansir refused to cooperate, instead going along with cuts in many areas, including the discontinuation of the town’s support of non-profit organizations that benefit residents, such as “Project Most.” An aide to the supervisor’s office said that “Project Most” money was cut because the “board believes the town has an after school program in place that ‘Project Most’ competes with.” Hammerle is preparing a list of employees not under town
contract, whom supervisor-elect William Wilkinson can dismiss, replace or eliminate. In what will be a sea change in how the town board does business, Wilkinson has gone the length to hire two $100,000-plus salaried consultants to advise him on how to navigate the maze of financial mismanagement. Len Bernard (Jay Schneiderman’s former budget expert) and Don Cirillo will join Team Wilkinson January 1. Hopefully they’ll be worth the six figures they’re being paid to help the financially seasoned supervisor-elect turn around the negative reputation the Town of East Hampton acquired during the latter part of the McGintee years. With the Republican Party having a majority on the board starting in January, and with all three newly elected Republicans (Supervisor Wilkinson, Councilmen Theresa Koncelik Quigley and Dominick Stanzione) lacking prior Town of East Hampton government experience, this move is wise. No doubt, during this crisis, prudent advice will be needed. It gets a bit more complicated in Southampton. supervisor-elect Throne-Holst will preside over a board dominated at first by Republicans 3-1 until a special election is held to replace her seat as she moves to the supervisor’s chair. Hoping to work together with her fellow board members, Throne-Holst will have a partisan campaign going on for her seat, with the possibility of current Supervisor Linda Kabot on the ballot for the vacated board seat. Somehow Throne-Holst, who is talking to all department heads one-on-one to see where the land lies, is counting on the board
to assist her in correcting the mistakes of the past without partisanship. She hopes the era of polarization can end in a healing process tempered by the severity of the present financial crisis. Hopefully everything won’t end up in a bickering “power struggle,” in an attempt to embarrass the new supervisor and make her seem ineffective and irrelevant. Having the special election will not help heal some of the bitterness of the last election. Democratic Party sources are hopeful that their new star, former federal prosecutor Bridget Fleming, will once again run, following her promising campaign for Councilwoman on November 3. It was an impressive run, considering that Fleming was relatively unknown just eight months ago. Concerning town expenditures in her tenure, Throne-Holst has vowed that no money will ever be spent that isn’t already in place. She promises to uncover the full extent of the past deficits, and believes that correcting the process that lead to their creation is in her realm of expertise. Both incumbent Councilman Chris Nuzzi and newly elected Councilman James Malone pledged in the campaign to be responsible and to, in effect, “attempt to do more with less.” That will be the challenge to both town boards. One thing is for sure: although the enacted 2010 town budgets with their tax increases are frozen in place, how the town spends the budgeted money can be altered in the fiscal year. The new town governments will be able to change things on the fly and even make cost-saving cuts.

Smoke Signals Unkechaugs Get Good Press about Smoke Shops. But is it Deserved? By Dan Rattiner Newsday blared giant headlines on its front page last Monday for a lead article that read, SAVED BY CIGARETTES—THE TRIBE FEARS REVENUE WILL GO UP IN SMOKE. The essence of the article is that the big bad federal government is attacking this tiny eastern Long Island tribe of 280 Unkechaug Indians, just at the time it is starting to prosper with the revenue from its little smoke shops. At these shops, they sell cartons of cigarettes tax-free to the general public. The tribe lives in near-poverty on a small 55acre lot composed of 35 small houses and 65 trailers in Mastic, Long Island. Tribal members used to range over much of Long Island, but then the white men came. Now they have just this small acreage along Poospatuck Lane
where they make a modest living selling cigarettes. Numerous tribes on Long Island sell cigarettes from stands, but the Feds are focusing on just the Unkechaugs, Newsday says. And it’s true. The Unkechaugs were just about to begin building a community center. Now the Feds want to shut down their only livelihood: their smoke shops. It makes no sense. Or does it? The idea from Newsday’s perspective comes from the theory that more people will snap up the paper with this on the front page. UNKECHAUGS CREDIT CIGARETTE SALES FOR EASING POVERTY, a subhead reads. INDIANS IN MASTIC VOW TO FIGHT EFFORTS TO HALT BUSINESS. The Unkechaugs say the Feds are attacking just
them because they are the weakest link. Soon, they will be after all the tribes. I have often said that you shouldn’t believe everything you read in the newspapers—or see on TV either. With newspapers, read between the lines. Or in this case, all you have to do is read the lines. The Unkechaugs have been selling cigarettes tax-free on their land since 1991, the article says. The first smoke shop was opened by tribal chief Harry Wallace. In recent years other smoke shops have opened on the reservation. (The Shinnecock Reservation in Southampton has had two smoke shops since the 1960s). Now there are more than a dozen smoke shops on the Unkechaug Reservation. One month ago, though, the City of New York (continued on page 28)
CONGRATS TO JODI RELL FOR A JOB WELL DONE By Dan Rattiner I heard on the radio this morning that Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell has decided not to run for re-election. Her popularity after three terms remains high—the polls say that 65% of the voters would vote for her again. But she says she’s been in office long enough, and she wants to retire. It’s time for someone else to take the reins of office. Some of you reading this will say what a fine job Rell has done. She’s a model of how to be a good politician, and who would have thought that this former secretary and clerk could rise to such an office and do such fine work?
Others of you will say, who the hell is Jodi Rell? I would like to speak for the former group. I was born and raised in the suburbs of post-war New York City in the 1950s. The radio stations I listened to (on AM, there was no FM) were WCBS, WOR, WINS and WQXR. We didn’t have much TV back then, but what we did have, in black-and-white and on small screens, were CBS, NBC and four other channels including Channel 13, all based in Manhattan. Our baseball teams were the Yankees and the Dodgers. Everything revolved around New York City.
Then, my dad moved our family out to Montauk. I was 16 and when I turned on the TV, I was astonished to discover that although we were still in the New York metropolitan area, the radio and TV were from Connecticut and Rhode Island. I thought this pretty ridiculous at first. But I soon learned that as the crow flies, we were closer to New England than to New York, and were only within signal range of the former. Later, I learned a further interesting fact. Eastern Long Island was settled by the pilgrims from New England. Indeed, for the first (continued on next page)

from one end to the other. What with the downturn on Wall Street and the general economy, nearly half these stores will be boarded up all winter while Sag Harbor, with its mom-and-pop stores, continues to flourish. East Hampton will look like Jobs Lane in Southampton where half the shops are closed half the year. Of course, Southampton has its Main Street. And its dogs. Personally, my dog and I have been encountering lots of problems with young children out on village beaches in East Hampton. I write most of these stories for the paper on the beach. Yet on numerous occasions, children under the age of nine, running by, have kicked sand onto my keyboard. They are sorry they did that, but it doesn’t do much good. I also have a problem with them splashing the water on one another and on me in the sea—horseplay, I think they call it. And the ammonia smell from their mothers changing the diapers of the smallest ones are an affront to me. Kids also jabber away, sometimes with such loud voices it makes your ears ring so much you can’t do anything else but listen to them. Certainly this is not conducive to either snoozing, which I sometimes do, or writing. Surely people have the right to be someplace without having to endure these things. Have you ever been on a beach when they start up with those crying jags? Sometimes they do this when they get lost. It could tear your heart out. I think it is fair to say that only about 20% of the populace in this village has children under the age of nine. That 20% is about the same as the percentage of the populace that own dogs. I say no children on the beaches between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. in the summertime. And if the
village doesn’t do that, they should at least pass leash laws for them. I know a man who was BITTEN by a kid last summer at the beach. I’m not kidding. We are a litigious society. Think about it. Last week, Southampton Village went into mourning because of the loss of a well-known German Shepherd K9 dog operating in that town. He had been the companion dog to his trainer, Officer Mike Medio of the Southampton Village Police Department, and had been helpful in numerous investigations since 2002. He will be missed. Years ago, Southampton Village had a sheepdog that followed the mailman on his rounds every morning. He did that for years. Everyone loved this free-spirited pup. He would show up for work promptly at 8:30 am every day, and he’d go home when his rounds were done. The town was so saddened when he died. I wonder how many people remember Bee Bee. East Hampton Village had its own popular mutt that made the rounds of all the stores back in the 1980s and 1990s. He was owned by a retired British Air Force flier who was a real estate dealer here. He had his office in his home on Woods Lane. His dog, a dachshund, would go around the corner and into one store after another by himself on a regular route that took him down Main Street’s north side, then up Newtown Lane, then down the other side and then back down Main Street’s south side and then home. He was looking for either a pat or a treat at each of his stops. He was a friendly little guy. When he died, everyone missed him and I reported on it on the front page of Dan’s Papers.
Dogs like this are still around. They might be found in other towns. Soon, however, you won’t see them in East Hampton.

50 years, important decisions involving the East End were made in Hartford, Connecticut. For this reason, over the years, I have taken a curiously amused position involving the media from New England. Although soon, particularly with FM and cable and the local stations, we were able to get our New York news, I would never, while turning the dial, turn away from the local news of Connecticut. I had no idea what they were talking about, of course. There was another pileup on 395. The Red Sox lost another one. The ship building works at Groton launched another new nuclear sub. It was all so deliciously remote. Listening to it these days, it brings back the memories of my childhood. And whatever the problems are today, it is so nice to know they are not mine. This morning, on the NPR station, out of Willimantic, I think, I heard that Pfizer was shutting down a research lab in New London, and that would not be good. On the other hand, that would make the research lab in Groton the biggest in the world, and that was good. Then I heard that Rell had said she would not run for re-election. I have never met Rell, I don’t know anything (continued on page 28) CREATED BY DVM COMMUNICATIONS

Hauling Water Transporting Perrier, Fiji, Pelligrino, etc. Is the Most Wasteful Thing By Dan Rattiner The other day we ate at the Living Room restaurant in the Maidstone Arms. This is a new restaurant in East Hampton that is getting very good reviews and from having eaten there, I can heartily recommend it. The ambiance is classic old East Hampton, the service is polished and friendly and the food is impeccable with a kind of Swedish accent, since that is the heritage of the new ownership of this inn. The first thing that is done at all fine restaurants in these parts, after the menus are handed out, is that drink orders are taken, and then water preference is asked for. This one is no exception. “Sparkling or still?” Many people opt for just the regular water rather than either of these.
The water from the tap, made from rainwater in the Hamptons, is just fine. Almost always it runs through a filter in the kitchen like the filter you might have on your kitchen faucet. It is also free. As for “sparkling or still,” that means you are going to spend six bucks because the water, either carbonated or not, has been hauled in bottles from France or Italy or Fiji or wherever, aboard diesel-spewing freighters. It is a statement against this disgraceful behavior to order the tap water. It also saves six bucks. I, however, like most everybody else, order the water I like, which is usually the sparkling water. Pellegrino from Italy as my favorite, but Perrier from France will do. I therefore am not practicing what I preach. Oh well. Going to a
restaurant is a special treat, and until everybody does it or they make it a law that transporting water is ridiculous, I am not going to give up something I like. What is one bottle, more or less, going to matter? (I know I am on shaky ground here.) In any case, at the Living Room, when I asked for sparkling water, they said they served Natura sparkling water. I figured it was from Sweden. What the hell? The container arrived—it was a sort of cylinder with a screw top and the word “Natura” on the side. The waiter poured it, and indeed it sure was sparkling. I did notice, however, that as he screwed off the top before pouring it, there was no fizzing noise to indicate a seal had been (continued on page 26)
MADOFF’S METS JACKET AND OTHER STORIES By Dan Rattiner Last week in this newspaper we wrote a report about a Hispanic construction worker who found a 1978 New York Yankees World Series ring in the parking lot of Mirko’s restaurant in Water Mill and the next day returned it to its owner, James Nederlander of Southampton. Nederlander is not a ballplayer, and it is fair to say that most people would be surprised at that. They would consider that whoever owned this ring had been one. They hand them out to the winning players. Truth be told, Nederlander has been one of the minority owners of the
Yankees since 1975, and when the Yanks won the series in 1978, George Steinbrenner made sure that Nederlander got a ring along with all the other minority owners. I mention this once again because last Saturday there was an auction in Manhattan of some of the possessions of Bernie Madoff, and amongst these possessions was a silk New York Mets baseball jacket with MADOFF in orange letters on the back and the number 25 on the front. It was a jacket, not a ring, because the Mets had not won a World Series since Madoff had become involved with them. So Fred Wilpon, the owner of the Mets, was only able to
give Madoff a jacket. Madoff was Wilpon’s money manager and good friend. Over the years Madoff made Wilpon $300 million on his reported $700 million—and then Wilpon discovered it was all paper and he’d actually lost the whole shebang. The jacket sold for $14,500 to a collector. The jacket of anybody famous would sell for that amount of money. (A letter written by Hitler recently sold for $145,000.) Other items at the auction sold for a lot less. Among them was a collection of 22 Rolex watches, one of which was an antique Rolex Oyster (continued on page 30)

Finally, Claus Hoieâ€™s â€œDialogue of the Wind and the Seaâ€? represents an underlying theme in his signature boat series: nature is the driving force behind our love of life and family. Of course, many works were selected for the very reason that they are signature pieces, including Paul Brachâ€™s â€œThunderhead #1â€? (1989), Stephanie Brody Ledermanâ€™s â€œPretending We are Simpleâ€? (1997), Cornelia Fossâ€™s â€œSummer Gardenâ€?

The works of Priscilla Heine, winner of the 2007 Annual Guild Hall Artist Members Exhibition (Part 1), are also on display, representing diverse abstractions that have yet to be called â€œsignatureâ€? pieces. They are characteristically bold and primordial with similar bulbous shapes, especially â€œRough Red,â€? perhaps signifying a bulb buried in the ground, and â€œBunch.â€? Other works recall organic forms like â€œOut of the Boxâ€? and â€œLucy Goosey,â€? where arresting material and use of color give meaning and power to the pieces. When one realizes that Heine was always conscious of life around her, wanting to dig beneath the surface of reality, her current art makes even more sense.

The Sheltered Islander By Sally Flynn
Dumb, Dumber, Art Form Mon. Nov. 9, 2009 LONDON (Reuters) Kylie MacLellan – A British man on the run from police sent a picture of himself to his local paper because he disliked the mug shot they had printed of him... in the South Wales Evening Post... the 23-year-old sent the newspaper a replacement photo of himself standing in front of a police van. They obligingly printed it on the front page. The police thanked him for helping them in their appeal, saying, “Everyone in Swansea will know what he looks like now.” People do many stupid things in life, and we all have committed our share of stupid acts, but there are some people, including the man in the example above, whose stupidity is so profound, so unbelievable, so unimaginable to the average person, that we must regard it as an art form, for none other than a true artist of the genre could achieve it. A man in New Jersey went into a drug store, drew his gun, announced a robbery and pulled a Hefty-bag face mask over his head—only to realize that he’d forgotten to cut eye holes in the mask. A woman in Virginia was concerned that the cocaine she bought wasn’t real. So, she took it to her local police station to have it tested, and lo and behold, it was real. They promptly arrested her. She later sued the department for wrongful arrest claiming they didn’t have probable cause, because they probably didn’t know she had cocaine. A guy going into a courthouse put his bag of marijuana into the pocket bowl before walking through the metal detector, according to the Abliene Reporter News. In Rome, Georgia, a thief broke into a convenience store overnight and tried to cover his tracks by burning the place down. He threw charcoal lighter fluid around, ignited a display and (bonus) set himself on fire! While in flames, he grabbed a roll of lottery tickets and fled. At the time of the story, police were looking for a man on fire, or smoldering, with facial, neck and wrist burns. A holdup man in Minnesota thought that if he smeared mercury ointment on his face, it would make him invisible to the cameras. Actually, it accentuated his features, giving authorities a much clearer picture. In Ashland, Kentucky, police reported that Kasey Kazee entered Shamrock Liquors and attempted to rob the store. Employees were astonished that he had disguised his face by wrapping it in duct tape! The store manager chased him out with a baseball bat and an employee held him in the parking lot until police arrived. Police removed the duct tape after taking pictures... In Sao Paulo, California, a psychiatrist was listening to a patient talk about her sex life when he pulled out a gun and shot her to death. As he explained to the court, “I just couldn’t take those nut cases anymore.” (continued on next page)

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner
(continued from previous page)
Of course, nothing dumb has ever been done on the Island. Except maybe for the time I backed up over my suitcase. Or the time I hooked a swimmer by his shorts and kept reeling him in. It’s true. I’ve done some dumb things, and it must be just me, because here, all the men are brilliant, all the women are beautiful and all the children are gifted. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it...
times are good and they risk even more money when times are bad, and they do it in all areas of business, wherever they see opportunity consistently and publicly. One of the most notable figures of our time for being a true wealth creator and an economic analyst that acts deliberately on his observations is Wilbur Ross, who happens to have a house in Southampton. Ross isn’t annoyingly rich, because when you read what he has done, you feel like he deserves it. When the steel industry in the United States was all but abandoned, Ross bought in, put Americans back to work and created one of the most successful steel companies in the world. His whole career is based on turning things from bad to good. When oil was at the height of its bubble and Al Gore and Goldman Sachs oil brokers had us believing that gasoline was going to cost $10 a gallon, Ross recognized the bubble and went and bought himself an Indian airline that was struggling because of high oil prices. What seemed like the next day, oil prices came down dramatically, and his airline, SpiceJet (I’m not kidding, that really is the name) headed for blue skies. As bank after bank failed thanks to bad mortgages, Ross made headlines for buying failing mortgages with intentions of turning them around. And the world watches
as he does it, amazed by his brazen commitments but secretly confident that he has it right. As the stock market seems to be in an impressive recovery, it’s hard not to think that we are heading into a government-created stock-market bubble. The current economy reminds me of Mike Tyson; you simply never know what the hell he is going to do next, good, bad or ugly, and it puts everybody on edge. But there has been hope—the stock market has been soaring, news has been positive and we’re starting to feel that things are getting back on track. But just when I started thinking that things were turning honky-dory, Ross had to go and ruin my day. Bloomberg.com’s headline said it all: “Wilbur Ross Sees Huge Commercial Real Estate Crash.” According to Bloomberg.com, Wilbur Ross said in reference to commercial real estate, “All of the components of real estate value are going in the wrong direction simultaneously.” Gulp. On the upside, you’ll know the commercial real estate collapse is coming to an end when Ross starts buying up all of the malls in America. That will be the time to get in.

We have some of the world’s greatest masters of business in the Hamptons. There are captains of industry, and there are financial wizards that simply dazzle us when we learn how they came to be. For many of them, their stories make it sound like they were just riding a wave. There are the people who made big money making big bets on real estate when banks were giving million-dollar loans to busboys. There are the guys who made big money forming funds that bet on stocks in industries that bubbled, such as oil or dotcoms. There are the annoying people who inherited the patent for the air-conditioner. When you read about many of these people, there always seems to be one big move, one big deal, that put them on top and allowed them to coast ever since. But then there are the guys who, time and again, make investments or form businesses that simply dazzle. They make money when

By Dan Rattiner Week of November 21-27, 2009 Riders this week: 5,841 Rider miles this week: 86,225 DOWN IN THE TUBE CONGRATS TO THE HAMPTONS’ OWN NY YANKEES BACKUP BATBOY New Hampton Subway Marketing Director Sam Loeb says he was pleased that almost nobody in the Hamptons came to the New York Yankees ticker tape parade held on the subway system last Wednesday at 8 p.m. The honoree was substitute batboy Harry Johnson, a resident of Queens whose parents rented a cabin in Hampton Bays one summer eight years ago, when Johnson was nine. Johnson stood inside the last car waving to one and all as the subway went from Montauk to Westhampton Beach. “People celebrated the Yankees’ victory at home on that day,” Loeb said. “And I’m told many of them toasted Johnson at the appropriate time. It’s good that families stayed together.” The confetti, still in its boxes, awaits another important event. Loeb’s next project is to organize handcar races on the subway between 2 and 5 a.m., when the subway is closed. Entrants should be in peak physical health. Applications are avail-
able at our Hampton Bay headquarters. The event is scheduled for the Friday after Thanksgiving. “We think this will keep the teenagers off the streets,” Leob said. First prize is an Xbox. LOST AND FOUND Maintenance men in Montauk cleaning the cars late last night came upon a diamond-studded 2008 Philadelphia Phillies World Series ring wedged between two cushion seats. Anyone wishing to claim the ring can call our Hampton Bays headquarters anytime within the next 30 days. After that, it will be thrown out. RATE INCREASE The cost per subway ride will increase next Monday from $1.75 to $2. Commissioner Aspinall wants riders to know that this is not his doing, but is at the behest of the Metropolitan Transit Authority, which has asked Hampton Subway, which is not part of that system, to volunteer 25 cents per ride to help subsidize the losses incurred by the MTA during this past year. TURKEY STAMPEDE PLAN For the last four days, Commissioner Aspinall has supervised 10 interns surveying straphangers about his proposed Thanksgiving Turkey Stampede down at the platform turnstiles. The proposal entails cowboys herding live turkeys
down the tracks during the morning rush hour. So far the results show 8% in favor of the plan and 9% opposed. 83% didn’t have time to give an answer. The survey continues. LARGEST SCULPTURE EVER ON A SUBWAY PLATFORM Work proceeds on the new massive sculpture by noted artist Adrien Bordeaux. The part of the Amagansett platform to accommodate it has been jackhammered out. The tracks for the spur from the main line to the space created are under construction. Pretty soon Bordeaux’s creation—a dozen bronze pieces, straphangers all—will be on display for the general public inside a subway train parked there. The arrangement of the pieces will change regularly so we can have a new wine and cheese gallery opening each month. The display will be called “Straphangers,” and enjoyed by lucky subway users in Amagansett for many years. ANOTHER TROPHY Hampton Subway has picked up another award for its sterling service, this time for Best Lighted Subway System, Northeastern United States Region for Cities of Less Than 200,000. Hampton Subway Commissioner Bill Aspinall was on hand to receive the trophy at the International Subway Commission’s annual retreat in Rio de Janeiro last week. “We are flattered and honored to receive this award. It could not have happened without the diligent work of our maintenance staff in selecting the proper wattage for the light bulbs on our line.” CLOSE MECOX?

the proposed Thanksgiving Turkey Stampede last week, interns asked if they were in favor of closing the Mecox Station and turning it into a giant herb garden, since so few people use it. The results were 5% yes, 5% no and 90% “What Mecox Station?” COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE I am most concerned with the lack of progress being made in the construction of a new subway tube connecting the Sag Harbor Station to Foxwoods in Connecticut. It continues to flounder under Long Island Sound, and has apparently looped around to head in the wrong direction. When I get back from Rio next Thursday, I intend to look into this.

Tasting it brought to my lips not the bouquet of toast or bananas or tulips or cherries or any of the other things that good water and wine critics report on glowingly when they describe the latest beverage. It brought to mind my immigrant grandparents. Both sets of them, settling near one another in Brooklyn from the old country, used to serve sparkling water with meals. They made the sparkling water themselves. They each owned these thick glass seltzer bottles that had elaborate metal tops you could screw off. The tops had a trigger at one end and a spigot at the other. It also had a place where you could screw in a CO2 cartridge, a metal cylinder about the size of your thumb that had compressed gas inside. When you screwed it in, it hissed and carbonated the water in the bottle, and that was that. These cartridges also were re-usable. Down at the store they had a way of re-compressing the gas into them from a metal barrel of the stuff. As I recall, the cost was a penny to recharge 10 cartridges. There was a phrase then that referred to this business that’s still in use today. It was and is “two cents plain.” “Two cents plain” was what it cost to get a glass of this stuff at a luncheonette. It was also called seltzer. It is still called seltzer. I was so sure that I was drinking “two cents plain” that I looked at this very chic liter bottle of the stuff that had been left on our table. On the side was the usual business of how good it tasted. Also NOT on the side was the usual ridiculousness about the product having 0 calories, 0 calcium, 0 iron, 0 Vitamin D and so forth
and so on. It just wasn’t there. Then there was this note on it that read how, through this very special hocus pocus, the beverage was being brought to the table without having been transported across the sea from somewhere else. It saved the environment. It was from the local, pure water, and was specially treated with this elaborate process to make it such a bubblingly wonderful experience. In other words, they made it in the kitchen with CO2 cartridges and seltzer bottles, which I might add is the environmentally right and proper way to make sparkling water, and better than paying all that freighter cost to bring it across the ocean from halfway around the world. So far, so good. Then I thought of something else. Tap water, always served filtered in fine restaurants with ice, is free. The bread and butter is free. A bottle of Pellegrino from the Italian Alps is six bucks. I called over the waiter. “How much is this sparkling water?” I asked. “Four bucks,” he said. He then launched into the wonderful way they had thought up to save the environment, and how in addition to everything else, I had just saved two bucks. Then he left. I had mixed feelings about my beverage after that. On the one hand, I didn’t like the designer glass bottle that seemed to try to pretend it was some grand water from a foreign land. On the other hand, I was saving the planet. Then on the third hand, it cost four bucks. Then on the fourth hand, a can of Canada Dry Seltzer costs exactly the same as a can of Coca-Cola at the deli. That kind of tipped the thing. I vote for
saving the planet. Two weeks later, at another restaurant, I discovered they were doing the same thing. This is a new trend and I’m all for it. Four dollars be damned. This morning I heard on the radio that at the San Francisco Airport, they have just installed a kiosk where you can buy carbon credits. It makes up for the pollution your flight emits into the stratosphere. You punch in your departure and destination, the kiosk makes some calculations and says that it will swipe your credit card for an amount, which will be between $1 and $60, depending on whether you are flying the short distance to Los Angeles or the longer distance to Singapore. If you swipe your card, apparently, the idea is you have the right to fly guilt-free. You’ve done your penance. Or have you? Turns out, the money they charge (a fine? a ransom?) goes first to pay for the kiosk and the company that installed it, and then after that to benefit a particular forest in northern California that The Nature Conservatory owns. There, I suppose, the money can be spent on one more forest ranger or on some fertilizer for the tall trees or I don’t know what. In any case, the plane still flies overhead leaving a trail of carbon emissions that pollute the skies and create the global warming that is destroying life on earth as we know it. I guess it’s something, paying this guilt money. Now if we can only get them to serve Two Cents Plain to all the happy campers up there in economy and first class, the earth will be saved. Right?

fewer outlets where business owners could feel validated and supported. “We were looking for a way to make it though the winter,” she said. But beyond that, she added, “There is a new trend of women helping women to succeed in business. Expanding networks and working together has been a great thing that I’ve noticed.” The luncheon bore out all of Wilkie’s rationales and theories. The room at OSO was packed with women and filled with excitement and enthusiasm. This was a spirited group, eager to meet one another, trade business cards and network for new business opportunities. One of the other organizers said, “Here, you have camaraderie, friendship and the opportunity to meet and use each other’s services.” And that’s exactly what was happening. At my table was Tracy Zaweski, who has started the company Home Instead, which offers nonmedical companionship to help seniors in their homes. Next to her was Marianne Bogannam from the Dominican Sisters, who used part of her time at the mike to stress that she and Susan Galardi
By Susan M. Galardi “Women in business.” That was a catchphrase born in the ‘70s that held on strong through the ‘80s, when women’s businesses joined the ranks of minorities who could avail themselves of setaside contracts during the affirmative action era. Controversial as the program was, the fact is that it got many a small business off the ground. But in the last few decades the “women in business” niche faded away—you know, when women gained full social/political/economic equality. Well, throwback or not, the institution of women in business is alive and well, at least in Southampton. Last week, at the restaurant OSO at the Southampton Inn, more than 60 women gathered for the Women in Business Luncheon, organized by the Southampton Chamber of Commerce and hosted by Jessica Greenfield of Annie’s Organic Cafe & Market, Michelle Prest Kennedy and Cathy Wallick of Hamptons Tumblebus (a mobile gymnastics company), and Kerry Wilkie and Julie Lofstad of the company UntappedAbility, an agency that helps moms find their way back into the workplace. The November luncheon followed the premiere event in October, which attracted 65 women, mostly business owners. Attendees at last week’s luncheon represented sectors like technology, design and marketing, interior decorating, personal and life coaching, insurance and title services. Sole practitioners from upstarts rubbed elbows and exchanged business cards with female reps from established private sector companies like Bridgehampton National Bank and Enterprise Rent-a-Car, as well as public sector organizations like the Dominican Sisters, the Chamber and the Peconic Community Council. I asked Kerry Wilkie of UntappedAbility why a return to the exclusive designation of women in business. She responded that the luncheons were clearly fulfilling a need—clearly because of the turn out. “The first one sold out, and so did the second,” she said. “Women come to things!” The idea for the events came about when Wilkie and a few other women were discussing how they were going to get through the off-season in the Hamptons, with less business and

went to court and won an order requiring the smoke shops on this reservation to either charge the tax or shut down. Over the last five years, the city claims it has lost hundreds of millions in sales tax because of the tax-free cigarettes being sold in Mastic. Here’s the interesting part. The city presented evidence in court that wholesalers sold the Unkechaugs more than five million cartons of cigarettes last year. The Unkechaugs resell them. The retail prices range from $28 to $45 a carton, according to the hand-painted wooden signs on the shops (published in Newsday). The loss to the City of New York in unpaid taxes amounted to $157 million just last year. A little math: Five million cartons equals 20,000 cartons for each man, woman and child on the reservation per year. It also equals half
a million cartons for each smoke shop. Selling these cartons for about $35 a carton—without the sales tax—brings in, in cash or by credit card, $175 million a year to the Unkechaugs. Since a retailer typically only keeps about half of what he sells something for, this would mean the smoke shops net $87 million a year. Divide this by 100 families. You get $850,000 per Indian family as income per year. Don’t get me wrong. I am in favor of the 10 Indian tribes on Long Island selling tobacco to the general public from smoke shops on their property. And I am in favor of them making as much money as they can. The thing is, though, that the money is obviously not getting down to the Indians. On the other hand, the city is arguing that the sale of this number of cartons every day is
not a result of a bunch of customers driving up and getting a carton or two over the counter every day. There’s something else going on, possibly involving racketeering and bootlegging. A judge agreed with them, and whatever this is it’s not good for the Indians and it’s going to ruin everything for all the Indian tribes who have been selling cigarettes tax-free from stands as small-time operations all these years. Newsday asked the tribe’s treasurer, Thomasina Mack, 43, where matters would stand if the tribal smoke shops shut down (one of which already has) because of the ruling. “Oh my God,” she said, “we’d probably go back to being dependent on the state.” Tribal chief Wallace showed the plans for the community center. Now that won’t happen. Newsday wants you to feel angry about what is being done to the Unkechaugs. And you should feel angry about it. But it’s a whole something else. And the rest of the Indian tribes wish it had never come to this.

about her or even what she looks like, but just from her name, I imagine her as a kind of frumpy middle-aged secretary person who was just part of the machinery of the government up there, who maybe did Xeroxing or answered the phone or something and who, like the farmer Cincinnatus, who was called upon to become Emperor of Rome during a crisis for a year, was approached in a tumultuous time in Connecticut and elevated to become the governor of that state whether she liked it or not. Before Rell, the governor of Connecticut was a very handsome man named John Rowland. He had a great booming voice and was all in favor of the constitution and our freedoms. He looked in the mirror every morning after he woke up and would see this magnificent specimen who someday might become President of the United States. He was grand, commanding and full of himself. He also used a construction company that was busy building something in the state capitol to do renovations on his house. For three months, expressions of outrage and demands of impeachment rang throughout the halls of the state capitol. Finally, he gave in. As he went through a trial, conviction and sentence to prison, his Lieutenant Governor Jodi Rell took the reins. No one had any idea she would do more than just play out Rowland’s term. She stood for re-election at the end of her term, won, and in the six years she was subsequently in office, never had a bad thing said about her in the mornings when I heard about her on the radio from Willimantic. Some crisis happens, she comes in and calms everybody down. Some controversial bill comes to her desk. She takes a stand, negotiates it through and says that is that. She had hit the ground running. She was a natural at the job. She did the job as best as anybody ever did it. Apparently. A pat on the back to Rell for a six-year job well done as she goes back to her family and friends. She’s got my vote.

watch from the 1940s worth $63,000. Another was a Rolex “Monoblocco” watch worth $87,500. Ruth Madoff’s fur collection was also on the list—a fact that resulted in a letter sent from PETA demanding that instead of auctioning the furs off to raise money for the rich victims of the Madoff scheme, the furs should be sent instead to all shelters around the city to help the homeless get through the tough winter. “By donating them to the homeless,” PETA wrote to US Marshal Roland Ubaldo, who was overseeing the auction, “you’d be able to highlight the difference between need and greed.” Other items included Ruth’s 14-carat white gold earrings valued at $18,000, Madoff’s telescope that he used to look out to sea from the Montauk mansion he owned, and cufflinks and golf clubs from the private club he was a member of in the Hamptons. The auction was held at the Sheraton New York on Seventh Avenue. Just under $1 million was raised for Madoff’s (now) poor victims. There’s been lots more Madoff stuff in the news this week. A man named Stanley Chais has sued to get the court to unfreeze the $1 billion that is currently in a fund at Goldman Sachs. He says it’s his money. Chais is an investor and philanthropist who lives in Los Angeles and New York and who had, right up until the end, $1 billion of his money
“managed” by Madoff. Just before the beginning of the end, though, too close to the end, Chais arranged with Madoff to withdraw his $1 billion. He transferred it to Goldman Sachs, which put it in a bank account in his name. Chais then heaved a great sigh of relief as the Madoff scam came crashing down. Shortly after the collapse, though, Irving Picard, the court trustee overseeing the liquidation of Madoff’s assets, wrote to the judge demanding that the $1 billion, along with $5 more billion from other people, be turned over to him because their withdrawals at the last minute clearly suggested they knew what was about to happen. The court agreed. The funds remain with Goldman Sachs, now in the trustee’s name, but frozen. Chais pleaded poverty. Picard told him to sell his Los Angeles house to pay his bills. Now Chais has sued Picard personally. Also on Friday, two computer programmers who worked for Madoff were arrested and charged with conspiracy and keeping falsified online records that could send them to jail for 30 years each. They are George Perez of East Brunswick, NJ, and Jerome O’Hara of Malverne, NY, and they had offices in Madoff’s office—the “Lipstick” Building on Third Avenue—and in those offices they wrote code and created programs to make false stock transactions that never took place look like they did.

They did this for three years, from 2004-2006, and then as they saw this could not go on, said they would cease doing that work. Madoff ordered they receive as they parted “whatever they wanted to keep them happy,” which turned out to be $60,000 each. All together, over the three years, O’Hara took home $900,000 while Perez took home $289,000. Both men used the money to buy larger homes. Neither said a peep to the authorities about what they knew. In still more Madoff news, this past week, the asking price for Madoff’s penthouse apartment in Manhattan was reduced due to no takers. Madoff’s Palm Beach house was also reduced. As you probably know, Madoff’s Montauk oceanfront vacation house on Old Montauk Highway, when offered up one month ago, flew off the block and up into a bidding war. What had been originally expected was $3 million. In the end it sold for $8.9 million to Manhattan developer Steven Roth. Now it turns out that Madoff’s other two properties are not as valuable as the appraisers say. The Manhattan apartment was reduced from $9.9 million to $8.9 million last week. The Palm Beach house was reduced from $8.49 million to $7.9 last week. A week ago, Madoff’s 2001 Mercedes station wagon, which was put up for auction with an expected sale price of $20,000, wound up selling for just $14,250 to Gregory Przybylski, a surgeon from New Jersey. Why was that? Why is everything else except the Montauk property not worth what was expected by the experts? One can only speculate. But the way I see it, the Montauk property is really the only one that can be shown off to friends of the new owner with any enthusiasm. This was Madoff’s vacation house. It is oceanfront in a surfing and fishing town with no pretenses of any kind. There would not only be no hex or spookiness about owning a house last lived in by the equivalent of Jesse James, it would be possible that it could be a conversation piece. The new owner sits in the living room, the fire in the fireplace roaring, the high surf of the ocean pounding the shore, and it’s a good time. A toast to Bernie Madoff. And now lets run into the ocean for a dip. The Manhattan property would be the primary home, with all the bills to pay and the groceries to buy and the kids to get to school, and it just isn’t the same. No trophy here. Just a lot of everyday life, and the damnation to hell of this man who ruined a whole lot of fine people. Can’t have that. As for the car, as one woman said after a reporter asked her about the fact that the car sold for just a little more than half its value, “I wouldn’t want to put my butt where he put his butt.” As for Palm Beach, that town is a serious place, with lots of parties, deals in back rooms and events jammed into only a few months in the wintertime, and maybe it is just one of those things where a buyer of a star-crossed property would be shunned by the neighbors. Anyway, them’s my thoughts. In any case, it’s a feather in the cap of the Hamptons and Montauk that the vacation house sold for what it did. That is what vacations are made of. What do you think?

EH Properties: Preserve Some, Exploit Others By T.J. Clemente The quaint charm that is East Hampton Village is no accident. The picturesque town pond, and centuries-old cemetery with its picket fence is surrounded by a historic district that brims with history dating back to 1648. Robert Hefner, the village’s historic preservation consultant, wrote, “The design of the Village of East Hampton today is directly related to the way the settlement was laid out in 1648...It is the policy of the Village of East Hampton to protect, enhance and perpetuate landmarks and historic districts to promote the economic, cultural, educational and general welfare of its residents.” Hefner directed the meticulous, historically accurate restoration of Hook Mill, Gardiner Windmill and Home Sweet Home, which experts agree are among the finest of the village’s—and early America’s—historic structures. On his expert recommendations, the Village Planning Board is in the process of adding more historic barns to be either acquired or recommended for historic preservation easements. When the village makes an acquisition, they own the property outright. A preservation easement is an amount paid to the property owner to insure that the structure will not be changed. The easement stays on the property even after the owners change hands. According Larry Cantwell, East Hampton town Village Administrator, preservation easements have always been cooperative between the parties. Hefner’s three specific recommendations are the Hand Barn at 78 Main Street, the Gardiner
Barn on Railroad Avenue, and the Osborne Barn at 6 Woods Lane. Other sites to be discussed are Childe Hassam’s house at 48 Egypt Lane, the Phoebe Huntting house at 21 Hither Lane, Rowdy Hall at 111 Egypt Lane and the Baldwin Cook Talmage house at 10 Cove Hollow Farm Road. Also on the agenda for consideration are two small historic buildings, several cottages, a piece of land of historic value and a number of historic properties in commercial districts. East Hampton’s broad common, which is now Main Street, was laid out on the plain north of Hook Pond and flanked on either side by home lots of eight to 12 acres each. Those lots extended east of the common to Hook Pond and west to what is now “Highway Behind the Lots.” Just recently in this most historic section, the Pond Estate, or as some people refer to it, the “Pink House,” built in 1903, has been acquired by New York City investment banker, Peter J. Solomon. (Suffolk County records indicate that Pink House, L.L.C., a private corporation formed in June, was the official buyer.) The sale was reported to be in the neighborhood of $19 million—some $3.5 million below the original asking price. The house, built as a dairy barn, was once a part of the Frank Wiborg estate. Adding to its charm are a bulkhead and dock on the pond, boathouse, greenhouse and root cellar. Village and town code state the house could be expanded to over 14,000 square feet. The house has a storied past. After Wiborg’s ownership, it was sold to Elisabeth Harkness and her husband, actor Robert Montgomery.
Robert’s daughter, Elizabeth Montgomery of “Bewitched,” visited the estate. The most recent owners were the late Broadway producer Alfred de Liagre, Jr., and his wife Mary, a Ziegfeld Follies performer who died in June at the age of 94. The property was put up for sale after her death. The swiftness of the sale in fewer than five months shows that choice real estate in choice areas moves, even in challenging times. Another sign of these challenging times just might be the new policy the Village of East Hampton is instituting at the Sea Spray Cottages at Main Beach. After 30 years of giving previous renters first right of refusal, the village will now rent the cottages to the highest bidder. It has been reported that seasonal rentals at Sea Spray Cottages last summer ranged from $27,882 for a one-bedroom unit to $51,211 for a three-bedroom, one-bath place, with the cottages bringing in $495,661 for the village in 2009. There used to be a waiting list of around 300. Now it becomes a situation of who will pay the most. One local laughed, “It sure will be interesting to see next year’s renters. I am sure it will be fun to see how high some people will bid for what once was thought as a right to rent there.” Sea Spray Cottages, 13 units in 10 structures, was purchased in 1979 for park and recreation purposes. It was a decision of Village of East Hampton voters to do that. The purpose of the purchase was for the cottages to raise money for the village. Once again, the town is hoping to use the properties as a money generator, at a time when a “highest bidder” carries a lot of clout.

Harnessing the Wind at Osprey’s Dominion
The groundbreaking ceremony power has been used for ages. There’s always a breeze here on the North Fork.” They have been powering their vineyard’s maintenance equipment with biodiesel fuels since then, waiting for the opportunity to capture the wind.
“Naturally, money savings is a motivation. The cost of electricity is high in a winery, for cooling, pumps and everything else. And our excess goes back into the grid.” It’s a win-win situation all around. Some other wineries are not too far behind, ready to jump on the green bandwagon. Charles Massoud of Paumanok is in the process of setting solar panels on his roof, and Shinn Estate Vineyards has been trying to procure a wind turbine for some time. We’ll wait and see who lines up behind these vintage pioneers. In addition to getting a glimpse of the one-andonly turbine on the Osprey’s Dominion landscape next year, we also get to try a new wine to celebrate. Look out next year for “Flight” – a wind-inspired blend of selected whites that features a fitting picture of a wind turbine on the label. Now that’s a way to mark the occasion.

By Maria Orlando Pietromonaco Someday soon you may get the urge to get yourself a pair of cute wooden clogs - we’ve got a little bit o’ the Netherlands coming our way. Osprey’s Dominion is going to be the first Long Island vineyard to have a wind-powered turbine installed on its property next spring. In partnership with LIPA, Osprey’s Dominion Vineyards appointed Mattituck-based Eastern Energy Systems to erect a 20k wind turbine on the vineyard in Peconic. Last Thursday they kicked off the project with a ground-breaking ceremony. In the age of clean energy, many brave, innovative souls are harnessing the power of the sun, water and wind to keep their homes and businesses in gear. The Dutch (in addition to other Europeans) have been taking advantage of the wind for thousands of years, and it took us this long to realize they had something there. Osprey’s Dominion is taking the plunge, ready to survive on the cutting edge of green living. Before we go on, here’s a quick science lesson: There is a difference between a windmill and wind turbine. A wind turbine converts the kinetic energy of wind into mechanial energy, and if the mechanical energy is used directly by machinery, like a pump or a grinder, the machine is usually called a windmill. If the mechanical energy is instead converted to electricity, the machine is called a wind turbine. As a catalyst to lure more businesses and homeowners to the way of cleaner, more cost-effective energy, LIPA introduced its Backyard Wind Initiative this past January, which gives rebates to those who institute and utilize wind power. This effort was an add-on to the original Solar Pioneer program that rebated millions of dollars to greenconscious individuals for their “PV” (solar power) systems. The collaboration with Eastern Energy Systems (E2sys) was a perfect match, as their company’s sole purpose is to provide renewable energy products and services – solar, geothermal, and wind technology – to the mainstream. “E2sys is raising the bar for the future of wind technology on Long Island by installing the first 20k wind turbine for commercial application,” said E2sys Director of Corporate Relations, Al Harsch. “Due to the LIPA Wind Rebate program and federal tax incentives, this turbine offers tremendous benefits for business owners to operate cost effectively.” Jeffrey Lan, VP of E2sys, added “This is the first of many wind projects on Long Island that we have lined up for the future.” Though the cost of the project seems exorbitant $144,000 to be exact – the turbine is expected to produce about 42,802 kilowatt hours of electricity annually, for an energy savings of $7,918 a year. Not too shabby. In addition, LIPA is offering a rebate of an anticipated $69,401, which will negate the initial outlay. There are also some federal tax incentives that will help reduce the cost, as well as the ability for Osprey to sell unused electric energy back to LIPA. Bud Koehler and Bill Tyree, co-owners of Osprey’s Dominion, have been environmentally aware for years. “I’ve been trying to do this since 2004,” explained Koehler. “People weren’t so green back then, and the planning board turned me down.

House/ home By Susan Galardi
In the next week or so, many parents will be sitting down with teachers to discuss their children’s progress. Now that our son is in first grade, we feel that finally, this process will have some teeth. No more of that touchy/feely “plays will with others” stuff. We want to know the real dirt, the bottom line, the hard facts. In other words, is he the smartest kid in the class or isn’t he? And if he isn’t, what are you teachers doing wrong and why aren’t you seeing him for the extraordinary child he is? When our son was in pre-k at the East Hampton Learning Center, I remember muscling Miss Sandy to give us the goods. As she was discussing his cognitive abilities and showing us the difference in his coloring over the semester, I insisted, “But would you say that he is in the upper level of his class? He is advanced, isn’t he?” Sandy maintained her characteristic calm (probably the same demeanor she displayed with a child in a full-throttle temper tantrum), pointed to the paperwork in front of me, and said something noncommittal like, “As you can see, he has improved over the semester in keeping with expectations of his age group.” She probably wasn’t allowed to be candid, you know, for legal reasons or privacy issues. But after much jockeying, pushing, inferring and generally being unwilling to leave her office until she said what I wanted to hear, she finally threw me a bone: “He’s a very bright little boy and he’s a pleasure to have in class.” Aha! Just as I thought: Our son IS the perfect student and the smartest. Hmpf! As a kid in parochial school, I was always confused about why God the father sent his son to suffer for the sins of mankind. “If he’s so loving, why didn’t he go himself? Why did he make his son go through all of

that?” I thought, maybe worried as a young child that my mother might make the same sacrifice. Then I had a child, and realized that most parents would take the bullet for their kids whenever they could, because it’s far more painful to see your child suffer than go through the most horrific suffering yourself. Maybe this is a bit of a dramatic comparison to make in the context of a parent/teacher meeting, but it’s discomforting for parents waiting to hear the painful truth: that your son is struggling with math concepts, your daughter is so shy she cries when she’s called on, there may be some learning disability requiring remediation. While many parents angst over the black-and-white academic issues (will he get good grades and go Ivy League?), other parents (like me) worry about how a child is doing emotionally. It wouldn’t bother me so much to learn my son doesn’t grasp double-digit addition (which I wouldn’t learn because he is brilliant), but it would keep me up at night if I learned that he feels defeated and insecure. But next week, we’ll learn what’s going on with our son at our parent/teacher meeting. And just in time, I got an email recently from the Huntington Learning Center of Calverton, offering suggestions Beth Troy

What are his strengths? In what areas could he improve? What skills should he master this quarter/semester? On Grading/Tests/Homework: Will there be standardized exams this year? How do students prepare for them? What are classroom grades based on? How much time should my child spend on homework each night? Parent Involvement: How can I help my child improve? To stay organized with assignments and projects? How can I support you in your classroom objectives? Good Communication: What is the best way to communicate with you? What should I try to accomplish with my child before our next conference? How can I inform you of my progress? To those, I would add: Is my child happy in school? Does he have a good relationship with you and the other teachers? Do his classmates like him? Do they invite him to join in their activities? In other words, gulp, does he play well with others…?

Life S tyle Raving Beauty
By Janet Flora
Anatomy of a Haircut: the Shattered Bob
I am examining a photo of Victoria Beckhamâ€”or more precisely, Victoria Beckhamâ€™s haircut. I look online for more photos; I am trying to find her in profile. Then I pull up some pictures of Katie Holmes. I find photos of her with and without bangs, but all the haircuts I see are short, chic and cropped. I plan on bringing these photos to the woman who cuts my hair. My hair is now cut in long layers. The back of my hair is longer than the sides. Itâ€™s easy for me to put it in a ponytail, or make a French twist or a messy chignon. I realize I wonâ€™t be able to do this if I cut my hair like Beckham or Holmes. But then I wouldnâ€™t need to, since the back of my neck would be exposed. I call my stylist, Carol Rosenberg of the Oscar Blandi Salon on Madison Avenue. I tell her about my plans to cut my hair in what is popularly called a â€œshattered bob.â€? She says, â€œOh, that sounds like a nice
change.â€? But I also tell her Iâ€™m a little nervous about this since Iâ€™m not quite as trendy as Beckham or Holmes, and Iâ€™m worried that Iâ€™ll have a hard time getting it to look good every day. Rosenberg suggests that I pin up the back of my hair and see how that feels and looks. Itâ€™s a Sunday and I am planning on a day at home catching up on chores. I bought some bobby pins for my experiment. I manage to get the shaggy back of my hair (which reaches to the top of my shoulders) tucked up and quite flat against the nape of my neck. I leave the sides of my hair loose, so the sides appear significantly longer than the back. I take a hand mirror to see how my creation looks in profile. Hmmâ€Śinteresting, but not quite as hip as Beckham or Holmes. I try on some big earrings and put on some lip-gloss. I go about my chores. An hour later, I catch my
reflection in my hall mirror. Somehow the first thing I notice are my glasses. I wear my glasses rather than my contact lenses most days. They have even become a bit of a signature accessory. They are not the Sarah Palin kind of frameless glasses. They have bold black frames. While I like the glasses I donâ€™t like that they are the first thing I notice with my faux haircut. In fact, I sort of resemble my Aunt Lesley more than I do Katie or Victoria. I put in my lenses and the hairstyle looks better, but I donâ€™t want my haircut to look good only with my lenses. Itâ€™s 9 p.m. and Iâ€™m back at my computer. I do a search for stars with bob haircuts. I find all sorts of new terms. In addition to â€œshattered bob,â€? there is â€œinverted bob,â€? â€œtapered bobâ€? and â€œasymmetrical bob.â€? All look a bit too extreme for me. Since I want a fresh look I take these pictures with me when I see Rosenberg the next day. She examines them and listens to my concerns. She says, â€œLetâ€™s modify thisâ€Śmaybe more like Ashley Olsen.â€? Iâ€™m not sure exactly what this looks like. Rosenberg finds some pictures of Olsen from the September spread in Marie Claire. Nice. The style covers the nape of her neck, itâ€™s not too layered and it is worn without bangs. I tell Rosenberg, â€œDo it.â€? I love it. Itâ€™s fresh and modern. It looks good with or without my glasses, the long sides frame my face nicely, and best of all, I can still get it in a ponytail at the nape of my neck.

Arts & Entertainment Anne Frank at Bay Street Theatre By Aline Reynolds
Gary Mamay Photo
Despite a sluggish year in ticket sales, Bay Street Theatre has debuted an ambitious annual theater program aimed at enhancing middle- and high-schools’ core curricula. Approximately 1,500 students from 15 Long Island schools have been trotting through Bay Street’s doors last and this week to attend “Literature Live!,” Bay Street’s first full-scale program of its kind. This year’s production, The Diary of Anne Frank, premiered last Monday and will continue through Saturday, November 21. Each weekday performance (open to the public) is followed by a presentation by Holocaust survivor Werner Reich, who was in Auschwitz. National retail chain Target allocated a large part of its $100,000 donation to Bay Street to “Literature Live!” this year. The BOCES-approved program was designed around the core curriculum of grades 5-12. All the local schools are participating, and students from as far as Lindenhurst are making day trips to see the play. Having just studied the play in class, a group of 30 students in Mary Ann Ferri’s eighth-grade English class at Lindenhurst Our Lady of Perpetual Help attended Tuesday’s performance. An annual “Literature Live!” production, Ferri says, will bring
live theater, a medium that many Long Island students have never before experienced, to venues closer to home than Broadway. “Who knows where it can lead?” she said. “Look at Jerry Seinfeld; he’s from Massapequa.” The play was a fitting culmination for Ferri’s students, as it brought the saga of the Frank family poignantly to life. “The kids can actually see the Frank family freeze in fear when they hear something on the street outside [of the annex, the family’s hiding place],” Ferri said. “It’s heart-wrenching.” Students watching history relive itself on stage makes what might read like a fictionalized version of the truth seem all the more credible. The play is still influential in 21st-century America, where, despite progress, bigotry still exists. “To see what prejudice can do when it is not overcome is important,” Ferri said, especially in the light of America’s recent election of its first black president. “Anne takes a stand and says, ‘this is wrong.’” “If you do nothing while a horror is perpetuated, you’re somehow culpable in that you’re making a choice to stand by and watch it happen,” said Bay Street Artistic Director Murphy Davis of the play’s (continued on page 41)

Honoring the Artist: Nick Cordone This week’s cover by Nick Cordone, “The Guardian,” does not simply celebrate the fall season with its iconic scarecrow. The rusting trucks convey a theme that’s close to Cordone’s heart by representing what were once dominant images on the East End. Unfortunately, those images are fading fast. Q: It’s obvious that this cover holds a special significance for you. Why? A: This painting pays homage to these workhorses: trucks and tractors that local farmers relied upon for years of service. It’s a reflection of an older, more respectful work ethic. Q: What could we expect to see in these trucks if we took a ride on the East End? A: The East End is filled with these trucks, some standing alone and others, side-by-side. Many are laden with tools of their trade, and others are filled with the bounty of local produce. Q: Where is this particular truck on the cover? A: This painting is actually a composite of a local truck that I found up on Route 105. The truck is in a deteriorated state with faded paint and creeping rust. Yet it’s standing proud, showing off its “patina of life.” I added the crows that announce the end and beginning of each season. Q: “Patina of life” is such a descriptive term. I know you used to take groups abroad, and even then you were conscious of the part the abundance of the land played in the various cultures. A: Yes. The best places to eat when you’re touring are the places where the buses stop. And produce stands have good food. Q: I take it you like to experience all kinds of settings, and you like outdoor adventure. Why is that? A: I can’t spend too much time inside painting in the studio; I have to get out. I’m a tennis player and I ski. I even take groups to ski the glaciers. Q: Isn’t that dangerous? A: It’s still the same basic snow. Q: Regardless of where you have traveled and what you’ve done, I take it you really like it here–you feel a connection. A: Living out here, we’re pretty lucky. It’s very soothing looking at the water. I was born in Queens, lived in Nassau and kept moving east to this place here in Southold. Q: When you go other places, even locally, you still have an eye out for images. You are still learning. A: Yes, when I go to SoHo and Chelsea, the experience opens things up for me. I also spend time doing research in libraries, and reading art history books and art magazines, which gives me ideas. Q: How does research influence your work? A: I realize when I do research that there’s nothing new under the sun. I just keep going, working on two paintings at a time, doing sketches. Sometimes the sketches are better than the paintings. All that prep works pays off for me. I like diversity; I can travel from one concept to another. Q: You have collected many references points that also impact your art. A: Yes. Trucks are a reference point indicating that a lifestyle has gone. Also my travels and my connection to animals are references. By the way, I’m still working on my animal series. –Marion Wolberg Weiss Mr. Cordone’s work can be seen at Greenport’s South Street Gallery and Westhampton’s Fitzgerald Gallery.

Her performance marks her induction into the Actors Equity Association, a union for professional actors. “Literature Live!” follows a disappointing summer season at Bay Street, financially speaking.

The theater also hopes to receive a $250,000 private donation that is conditional upon matching funds. Bay Street has not been deterred in its mission.

Food / Dining Keep the Wine Industry Flourishing By Maria Orlando Pietromonaco It’s probably hard to believe that our wine industry here on the east end is anything but flourishing, not when you sit in parades of taster traffic along the Winery Highway each and every weekend. Although many are thriving, they are all still facing some obstacles that are limiting their ability to progress. But not to fear. Local vintners were given a small glimmer of hope last Wednesday when they attended a forum focused on sustaining and improving the region’s wine industry. The platform was organized by Assembly Minority Leader Brian M. Kolb and members of the NY Assembly Minority Agriculture, Tourism and Outdoor Recreation Task Force. It was the fourth in a series of roundtables the 16-member Task Force has been holding around the state in an effort to open communication with related industries such as farming, hunting, fishing, and agri-business and help develop strategies to promote them. At this particular meeting of the minds the goal
was to understand the needs and challenges of local winery owners as well as the effect the industry has on the state and local economy. Owners and managers from Bedell Cellars, Martha Clara, Waters Crest, Pindar, and many more had the chance to express their concerns and discuss relative issues and the challenges they face. Other leaders in attendance included Steven Bate, executive director of the Long Island Wine Council (LIWC); Chris Baiz, LIWC President; Jim Waters, LIWC Treasurer; Dan Gilrein from the Cornell Cooperative Extension; President Mark Zaweski and Vice President Frank Beyrodt of the Long Island Farm Bureau, and boardmember Jackie EntenmannDamianos, who also played host to the event. Some key players on the assembly side included Assembly Minority Kolb, who is a lifelong resident of the Finger Lakes region where there are 45 wineries and is also home to the New York Wine & Grape Foundation, Task Force Chair Assemblyman Cliff Crouch (R,I-Guilford) as well as a representative from 1st District Assemblyman Marc Alessi’s office,

as he has been very influential for the wine industry in Albany. So was the forum a success? Steven Bate thought it basically accomplished what it set out to do. “The roundtable provided a very good opportunity for us to voice our concerns about a number of state laws, regulations and taxes that are having a negative impact on our industry,” he explained. Some of the examples of these unfavorable entities include a 40% increase in excise taxes this year, long delays in license and permit approvals by the SLA (State Liquor Authority), and the “significant reduction and/or elimination of marketing grants for initiatives such as the Winterfest Jazz on the Vine program.” The Assemblymen who participated all seemed to be optimistic and pleased with the turn of events. They seem to be clear about the problem at hand and the important role the wine industry plays in the overall economic picture. “The future of agriculture affects the Long Island region and our economy,” said Assemblyman James Conte (R,I,C, WF-Huntington Station). “I am impressed by the participation here today. These events provide an excellent platform to transform ideas into policies and laws that will ensure the continued success of the agricultural industry on Long Island.” There was some headway as far as what to do from here. The main objective is to strengthen tourism, enable the industry to prosper thus creating more jobs, and provide and protect financial resources. The Task Force discussed possibilities about a reduction in taxes, fees, and overall cost of running their business; in addition, they would work toward less compliance burdens. On the other side of the table, the local winery initiative vocalized the need for continued support for marketing and programs that generate visitors to the region. Kerry McKillop, Director of Events and Marketing for Pindar, expressed a moderate level of optimism. “The Task Force was renewing their commitment to the industry,” she explained. “They came and gave their support. It was exciting to have the representatives come to us instead of us having to go to them.” “The outlook for this industry is very bright,” said Steven Bate. “Despite the economic difficulties of this past year, winery tourism has continued to rise and we are seeing more and more interest in our region’s products in New York City and beyond. Still, as yesterday’s roundtable pointed out, there continues to be some serious policy impediments that undermine our industry’s ability to achieve its full potential and, as a result, its full contribution to our local economy.”

A Toast to Thanksgiving Brining, a seasoned liquid process used for chickens and turkeys before roasting, is decidedly a must to insure a moist bird. Brining is a simple solution of basically water, salt and sugar, to which some chefs will add other flavorings such as herbs and citrus juices. For brining it’s best to keep the bird to no more than 12 -14 pounds. Place the turkey in a large container, or doubled plastic garbage bags with the solution overnight in the refrigerator. This undoubtedly may take up a whole refrigerator shelf so it’s worth taking the time to organize your fridge by coordinating and removing any unnecessary items. When ready to roast your turkey, frequent basting is another way to achieve tender meat that is moist and cooked through. Crisp skin will happen in the course of roasting. Since the rear of the oven is always hotter place the roasting pan with the legs pointing to the back of the oven. An appropriate oven temperature for roasting turkeys is 325 degrees. Then roast the bird until an instant thermometer inserted into the inner thigh without touching the bone registers 165 degrees. Forget the Department of Agriculture suggestion of roasting fowl to 185 degrees. By that time the bird will be as dry as the bones that shape it. In addition to brining and timing the best advice I can give is to purchase a fresh, not frozen bird. Tests have proved that even though a frozen commercial turkey was not overcooked, it was tasteless. Locally grown heritage turkeys are available at Art Ludlow’s turkey farm in Bridgehampton and North Sea Farm in Southampton. Just remember to lovingly baste and tend your beautifully burnished bird. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

BRINED/ROAST TURKEY WITH LEMON AND FRSH HERBS Fresh locally grown turkeys must be ordered well in advance. Yield: Serves 10-12 To brine the turkey 2 quarts fresh cold tap water 1/2 cup kosher salt 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup orange juice 1/4 cup lemon juice 2 tablespoons cracked black pepper For the turkey 1 12- 14 pound prepared fresh turkey 1 large garlic clove, halved 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 1/2 cup mixed fresh herbs, sage, rosemary and thyme 1 large onion, quartered Herb branches Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper For a natural sauce 2 shallots, finely chopped 1/3 cup Madeira or dry red wine 2 cups chicken stock 1. Pour 1 quart water into a saucepan large enough to hold the turkey and add remaining brine ingredients. Bring to a boil, add remaining 1 quart water and let chill completely.
paper towels. Tuck back wing tips and truss the turkey so it will cook evenly. Place the turkey in doubled large garbage bags and pour in the cooled brine. Tie the bag tightly and put into the refrigerator. Turn the brined turkey several times in the refrigerator to distribute the seasoned liquid. If necessary get another pair of hands to help. 3. Next day remove brined turkey from the refrigerator and put into a clean sink. Open the bag and pour the liquid down the drain. Rinse the turkey well and dry inside and out with paper towel. Massage the turkey with the garlic cloves, then with lemon juice and herbs. Stuff the cavity with the quartered onion and herb branches. Place turkey on a rack in a roasting pan and season with salt and pepper Preheat oven to 325 F.

4. Roast the turkey about 3 to 3 3/4 hours basting the bird every 30 minutes or so. If the bird begins to brown quickly tent with a sheet of heavy duty foil. A reading with an instant thermometer inserted into the inner thigh below the leg joint without touching the bone should register 165 degrees. To test for doneness prick the thigh meat down to the joint and press gently for juices to run clear. Remember the bird will continue to cook when removed from the oven. Let rest for 15 to 20 minutes so the internal juices redistribute through the bird. Transfer to a carving board. 5. While the turkey rests, spoon off all but two tablespoons of fat from the pan drippings; add shallots and saute until translucent. Stir in Madeira or red wine and bring to a boil. Reduce liquid by half and add about 2 cups chicken stock. Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook at a brisk simmer. Keep warm while bird is carved.

YOU HAD ME AT HELLO Dear Dan, Love the article. Just wanted to add the additional “Horror of Every Registered Vehicle in Suffolk County” has had $50 added to its registration. I have seven vehicles in my driveway, not including boats and motorcycles. The MTA just dropped a $350 bill on me and I had no say in this. Dan, I have never been on a subway, or in a taxi or on a train. I have a car for transportation. In fact seven of them. Why am I burdened with the bad business practices of the MTA? I’m guessing this doesn’t affect the illegal aliens. Tony Hoffman Wading River, NY Via e-mail Paterson dropped the new license plate charge yesterday. – D.R. YOU CALL THIS A STORM? Dear Dan, Re; your First Thanksgiving story in the 11/13 issue; I believe that North Sea is 60 miles east of “Cow Bay,” Manhasset, not “west.” In addition, everybody knows that Conscience Point, on the southwest corner of North Sea Harbor, was named after that “landing,” and the quote of the “English settlers.” And you call yourself a Bonacker? Shame on you! Other than those two gaffes, it was a great story, as always! Yours, Lloyd Booth EQNY Via e-mail Thanks for the corrections. – D.R.
John Francis takes a friend’s six-month-old Tea Cup Yorkie named Daisy for her first kayak ride in Accabonac Harbor. The pup is in Francis’s hand-made “Daisy Kayak Basket,” which she loved. Next project is to teach her how to paddle. (John Francis, sent via snail mail.) JUST RAISE YOUR RIGHT HAND AND SAY, “I SWEAR I WILL NOT KILL ANYONE” Dear Dan, I am wondering when the town of Southampton is going to put the “Deer Crossing” signs on Millstone Road, Scuttlehole Road and Noyac Road. There are so many dead deer lying on the sides of these busy roads, it breaks your heart. I have personally called the town months ago, telling them about all the “road kill,” especially the mother deer hit by cars, leaving their babies to fend for themselves and they agreed to put up
the signs. To date they have not. Maybe some of your readers that agree with me, can give a call to the town’s Highway Department. Thanks for getting the word out. Maybe your voice will be heard! Best, Michele Tennariello Sag Harbor Via e-mail This is definitely needed. – D.R.
Police Blotter Creeeeeeepy A man in East Hampton was spotted observing children playing on a school playground. The man was wearing dark clothes and had his hood up. When a woman went to approach the man, he fled, got into his car and drove away. Craigslist Caper A young woman reported to police that somebody posted a Craigslist ad online with her direct telephone number. The woman began receiving all kinds of strange phone calls before she figured out what was going on. The woman then realized that her Facebook account had the same ad. Police are investigating. Trampoline A woman from Bridgehampton reported to police that somebody stole her $300 trampoline from the backyard of her home. Police have
opened up an investigation. They are advising the public to keep their eyes out for any flying people. Making a Run for it A man walked into a liquor store in Hampton Bays, took a large bottle of Wild Turkey and ran out. The clerk at the register went to go chase the man, who opened the bottle and started to drink it as he was running down the street. The clerk, who was not in very good shape, got tired from the chase and let the man get away. The man was last seen swigging the bottle of Wild Turkey while running off into the woods. Overdose On Coffee A man in Bridgehampton asked a Starbucks clerk for 20 shots of espresso in one cup. The clerk at the counter told the man that having that much espresso would be unhealthy and advised the
man to drink less. The man then became loud, and started going on about how it is a free country and if he wants to drink 29 shots of espresso at once then he should be able to do it. The clerk then told the man that if he didn’t calm down and leave the store that he was going to call the police. The man, still angry, complied, but not before giving the middle finger upon leaving the store. Three Angry Women Three women from the Shinnecock Indian Nation were hauled off to jail after they gang attacked a woman with whom they had previous issues at a bar in Southampton. The three women became so violent that they attacked another man, who was trying to simply leave the restaurant when the fight broke out. The woman whom they attacked received a severe bite and general injuries to her face. The man received a severe injury to his eye that will require surgery. When the fight broke out in the bar, patrons at the bar began throwing beer bottles at the women in a scene that turned into a very serious ruckus. The three women were arrested after police opened an investigation into the incident, and they turned themselves in. By David Lion Rattiner
