Animal Hampton Interesting Doings in the Fabulous Hamptons This Past Week By Dan Rattiner So, for all you city folks, here’s the news of the Hamptons this week. At about 11 p.m. last Saturday night, two horses and three goats were seen by a passing motorist clip clopping along on the side of Montauk Highway near the Laundry Restaurant at the corner of Spring Close Highway in East Hampton. The motorist, Chris Chapin, dialed 911 on his cell phone, and pretty soon the police showed up and tried to round them up as best they could. The herd seemed to be following the lead of a small pony, who seemed very disinclined to be rounded up at that hour. At one point, the police had the highway shut down in both directions. At another point, there were five police cars and a bunch of floodlights lighting things up. People in the area who came out to see what was going on were of the opinion that the fivesome were probably among the residents of the nearby Spring Close Farm. The owners of the farm, which is north of the railroad tracks on Spring Close Highway, were called about the goings on just after midnight. The call rousted them out of bed. “The latch must have come open on the gate,” Pam Glennon said. “We never got dressed so fast.” She and her husband rushed to the scene. Finally, at about 12:30, the five animals went behind the restaurant and seemed to think that nobody would see them there. The Glennons
lured the pony out with carrots, and the other horse and the three goats came along. By this time, the Glennons, who had armed themselves with bridles, bits and ropes, lassoed the animals and led them back home. Up on the North Fork for the past few weeks, there has been an occasional appearance of what witnesses say is a mountain lion. He was first seen in mid-October in the backyard of a home on Waterview Drive in Southold, by a woman named Marissa Romeo. Romeo didn’t say any-
because he didn’t want people to think he was out for publicity for his store or something. He said the creature was definitely a very large cat, light tan, about five feet long with a swishy tail that went on for about a foot and a half beyond that. Police asked if he was sure it was a mountain lion and he said he was a hunter and, though he had never encountered a mountain lion, he had seen pictures of them. “This was one,” he said. “I know what I saw.” The police contacted Gillian Wood-Pultz, who runs the North Fork Animal Welfare League Shelter, who set a trap for it in a wooded section of property near Goose Creek, but so far it has not caught any mountain lion. “It’s captured a couple of raccoons,” said Denise, who is John’s wife. “The trap is not large enough for what I saw,” said John. But Wood-Pultz said that she used the biggest trap that she had. In answer to repeated questions from people in the community, the police in Southold have distributed an advisory, which tells you to call them if you see the lion, and whatever you do if you see it, do not run away from it. “A big cat like that loves a chase,” the advisory says. “Just stand there facing the lion if you see him, and raise your arms high over your head so you look bigger. If the lion does not leave immediately, talk to him in a way that you would talk to a house cat. If it becomes aggressive, throw
The five animals went behind the restaurant and seemed to think that nobody would see them there. thing to anybody about it at the time because she thought nobody would believe her. But the next day, she saw the mountain lion around dinnertime basking in the sun in a neighbor’s driveway. It was quite nearby to a deer, but paid little attention to it. Romeo called the police, but by the time she got back from the phone, the lion was gone. The mountain lion was next seen on Waterview Drive south of Goose Creek by the owner of a store in Greenport who asked reporters that they use only his first name, John,

Hamptons resident Donna Karan is expanding her business. As part of its 20th anniversary, DKNY is launching a maternity line for spring, called The Happy Birth-Day Collection. The 18 pieces will include pull-on skirts and karate pants, and stretch materials in black, white and gray. Priced from $75 for leggings to $525 for a long dress, the line will be available at DKNY boutiques, as well as Bloomingdale’s, Bloomingdale’s Direct, Macy’s East and Macy’s West. * * * East Hampton resident Rory Tahari, the vice chairman and creative director of husband Elie Tahari’s label, will be publishing her first book next fall. The project will be a “collection of approximately 75 checklists on topics including parenting, moving, traveling, financial planning, taking care of your home, preparing for a hospital stay, planning a funeral and more.” * * * Rumor has it that Lipstick Jungle has been cancelled, but star and Southampton resident Brooke Shields isn’t throwing in the towel yet. Shields says execs have not been instructed to knock down the sets, and that NBC president, Jeff Zucker, is trying to figure how to please advertisers when the show’s biggest audience fast-forwards through commercials while watching on DVR. * * * Amagansett’s Sarah Jessica Parker will be the voice for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s new audio guide tour on “Costume: The Art of Dress.” In the first audio guide by the Costume Institute, available at the museum from November 25, Parker will guide visitors through approximately 20 pieces of art from the permanent collection, including costumes depicted in paintings and sculptures. Parker taped the audio tour in a recording studio during the summer. * * * Newsday compiled a list this week of some of the top spots to grab a cup of coffee on Long Island, and two Hamptons companies made the grade: Java Nation in Sag Harbor, and Hampton Coffee Company in Water Mill and Westhampton. * * * Hamptonite Russell Simmons will be serving as an ambassador during Global Entrepreneurship Week, a first-ever worldwide series of events to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship and encourage young people to become more innovative and entrepreneurial. Simmons will host the Race to BE, a national competition that will engage innovators in three industries, in three cities: fashion in New York, music in Austin and film in Los Angeles. During the Week, five finalists from each category will compete in an on-site challenge with each winner receiving $5,000, a mentoring opportunity, a possible internship and post-event PR for their winning concept. * * * Celebrating a successful year of extraordinary economic activity generated by the film production industry on the East End and recognizing the efforts of elected officials to make it happen, County Executive Steve Levy and the Suffolk County Film Commission, in cooperation with the East End Production Task Force, will welcome elected officials, Chambers of Commerce and business owners to a special “Thank You” networking cocktail reception on Thursday, December 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Southampton Inn. The event will feature several guest speakers, including Mitchell Kriegman, co-owner, East Hampton Studios, and Mike McGowan, president, Long Island 1141447

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner In addition to the stock market, I’ve discovered other reasons why a lot of people in the Hamptons are ticked off about the economy. A lot of us out there are just regular folk who happened to buy a house on the East End years ago because we really liked the area, and suddenly ended up owning a house in “The Hamptons.” Some people call that group “locals,” others call them “Bonackers,” although that really refers to a group that’s been here 350 years. I like to call them regular, hardworking people who like it here and just happen to have homes now worth millions. The other day, getting a cup of coffee at the Bridgehampton Market, I eavesdropped on a conversation between two women that went something like this. “I’m pretty sure that my house is worth 3.3 million, but now because of the economy, it is only worth about 2.8 and it is really scaring me.” The other woman asked her, “Do you plan on

Why oh why must we have to wait for the economy to come around while living in arguably the most beautiful place in America? We have to wait for the turnaround and watch all of the people who bought during these times enjoy their wise investments and only then will we feel better about ours. Really? The truth is that there are many people out there who are not losing equity in their homes and never will because they love them and will never sell. That is the big secret that original settlers and long time homeowners seem to get. They bought land out here because they loved it out here and they keep their land out here because they love it out here and they will continue to keep it because they still love it out here. If you’re frustrated because you want to sell your home but can’t get the price you want for it, just look around for a second. It will put your mind at ease.
John said, the mountain lion will be long gone. Mountain lions, which are not native to this area, grow to about 140 pounds, can be as long as seven feet (not including the tail), can leap 15 feet up off the ground and 40 feet sideways. They can run 45 miles an hour. Mountain lions feed on deer and other large animals, of which there are plenty here on the East End, so it’s possible that mountain lions could survive quite well here. Mountain lions hunt mostly at night and sleep during the day. They can emit growls, purrs, chirps, peeps, whistles and screams. Mountain lions often take their prey up a tree, where they hang it on branches to sort of, well, season it. They will come back to feed on it from time to time, and will defend the tree from others. So, if you see a deer up a tree, just keep walking.
Finally, in Sagaponack, work is underway to renovate the old barn at 3175 Montauk Highway, which is scheduled to be recreated as the Sagaponack Village Hall. In beginning the work, however, workmen have found the building to be infested with rats. Following an odd smell and then tearing some boards out of a wall, they uncovered the nest, which is made of a collection of old scraps and pieces of fuzz and cotton collected from around the area. The nest was filled with the remains of food that apparently came from a compost pile. The rats were having a fine old time. The bits and pieces of food included lobster, clams, ribs and fish bones. There was also the fully preserved carcass of a dead mouse in the wall. All of this is being removed. And the workmen promise that the Village Hall will be totally free of rats, the non-human kind, when it opens for business next summer.

Mountain lions rarely attack humans.” The chief of the Southold Town Police said that in the event the mountain lion is again seen, they will respond by inviting a veterinarian from the Sears-Bellows Wildlife Center in Hampton Bays to come and shoot it with a tranquilizer gun. “We will not kill it unless it attacks a human,” said Cochran.

Although I don’t really want to sell, I’ve had my oceanfront trailer for sale in Montauk (at a discounted price I might add) because I want to move closer to work in Bridgehampton. And thanks to the economy, I’m having a hard time selling it. Why oh why must I live on the ocean in Montauk? What a tragedy! We have a lot to complain about for having homes on the East End during this economic downturn. What a mistake it was to have bought a sensational house minutes from the greatest beaches in the world, two hours from Manhattan and easily rentable in the summer time should you feel like making a quick 10K, 20K, 30K, 100K.

Bathrooms Men & Women Achieve Equality Where It’s Never Talked About By Dan Rattiner Last Saturday morning at about 10 a.m., I was in the ladies room that is just next to the counter at Danny’s Poxabogue Café in Sagaponack. Danny’s is a very popular place for breakfast on the weekends and this Saturday was no exception. I was in there for a while when I heard somebody rattling on the door. This is always a disconcerting experience. I had locked it behind me. I hoped it would hold. I didn’t want some stranger walking in on me. It held. A minute or two later, the rattling of the door came again. And this time, I did what I always do under those circumstances. I said in the deepest,
most powerful voice I could muster, “I’m in here!!” They might be big men, but I was bigger. They should get the hell away from there until I came out. After I did this, I had second thoughts. I am, after all, a man. The men’s room was in use and the ladies’ room wasn’t. So I was using the ladies’. Whoever was out there, chances were, was female. I thought — maybe I should have spoken in a high squeaky voice. That might have been better. A few minutes later, I washed up, opened the door and looked directly into the astonished eyes of a slender woman of about 50, who could not have been more than five foot one. I marched off
taking big steps. It has occurred to me that bathrooms in public places have undergone a cosmic shift in recent years, a shift that has largely gone unnoticed. I hereby notice it. I was an undergraduate English major in the early ‘60s, and, for my senior thesis, I did a 60page study on the meaning of the graffiti posted on bathroom walls. It was limited, back then, to the graffiti on the bathroom walls of men’s rooms of course. I had never been in a ladies’ bathroom and I saw no prospect of ever being in one. I had seen ladies’ rooms in the movies of course. They were fabulous places, all tidy and (continued on page 30)
A MURDER IN PATCHOGUE REVERBERATES HERE By Dan Rattiner Last Saturday night, seven high school kids at a party in Medford told friends they were going out to “get a Mexican,” something that friends of these kids say is a sort of thing some of them do in that community on a Saturday night. It means beat up an illegal alien. In this case, however, these teenagers went out, cornered two “Mexicans” in a parking lot near the Patchogue Railroad Station, and then, while the others watched, one of them killed one of the men with a knife. The man who died was Marcello Lucero, 38, a day laborer who had lived in the community for
16 years and sent the money he makes to his mother in Ecuador. He was stabbed in the chest by Jeffrey Conroy, a senior at PatchogueMedford High School, who is on both the wrestling team and the lacrosse team, and, until now, expected to be college bound with an athletic scholarship. The others cheered him on while he did it. Lucero was not alone when he was killed. Also surrounded was his younger brother, Joselo Lucero, also an illegal, who slipped away when Marcelo was attacked, then immediately called 911, so that the police could quickly arrive to arrest this crew, which they did.
Hate crime does not rise to murder in cold blood very often, and so the coverage of this event — which took place just a 45 minute drive away from the Hamptons — appeared on the front page of The New York Times, on Fox News, CNN, the BBC, The International Herald Tribune and newspapers and television stations around the world. The first comment made about this murder, by Steve Levy, who is the Suffolk County supervisor, was that “This would have been a one-day story if it had happened in Nassau County rather than in Suffolk County.” The comment (continued on next page)
DAN'S PAPERS, November 21, 2008 Page 18 www.danshamptons.com
(continued from previous page)
was entirely devoid of concern for the family of the victim, and seemed to suggest that a heightened reaction by the media to this event was an unfair attack on his own particular illegal immigrant policy. Levy has, indeed, created a wide range of new laws in the County which are aimed at preventing illegal Hispanics from finding work, congregating anywhere in public or even staying here. He condones midnight raids and anything else necessary to get them either out of this area, or deported out of the country and back to where they came from. Without any humanitarian side to his new laws, many in the media believe these laws might encourage violent acts by white supremacists and others of their stripe. In recent years, this newspaper has been a strong proponent of a group that wants to cecede eastern Long Island from Suffolk County in order to start our own county. One of the reasons many of us have felt we ought to break away is because of the largely intolerant attitudes in Suffolk County, particularly the southwest end of it. If you look at the history of hate crimes and intolerance on Long Island, you notice a very unusual confluence of them in the southwestern part of the Island. Over the years, there has been nothing like it in Nassau County to the west or our East End, and that is a fact. In the 1920s, the Ku Klux Klan was based in the southwestern part of Suffolk County, holding its biggest rallies in Sayville and East Islip. In the late 1930s, there was a camp called “Camp Siegfried,” located in Yaphank — where
the Brookhaven Lab is today — that held torchlight and uniformed Nazi rallies demanding death to the Jews in America and world conquest for the Master Race. Camp Siegfried went on for three years, from 1936 to 1939, without county interference. Some of these rallies were attended by 20,000 people. The Nazis even marched through downtown Patchogue, with County approval. In recent years, there have been more attacks and hate crimes in this community of towns, which include Holbrook, Farmingville, Ronkonkoma, Medford, Patchogue, Sayville and East Islip. In 2001, two Mexican day laborers were trapped and beaten, nearly to death, in Farmingville. In 2003, a home owned by a Mexican family was burned to the ground in Farmingville. Just three weeks ago there were more than 100 leaflets placed on the windshield wipers of vehicles parked at the Deer Park Railroad Station, urging people to join the KKK. They were placed there by the Northern and Southern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. Some of this may help explain the unbelievable just-for-fun hobby of some of the local high school kids, which is to go out and beat up people who will not fight back because they fear the police will bring them to the attention of immigration. There is an apparent belief by some of the teenagers in the community that this sort of behavior is okay. Levy, who himself grew up and attended high school in the southwestern part of Suffolk County — he went to Sachem High School —
might do well to look at his initial knee jerk reaction to this shocking crime. The undercurrent of intolerance there goes back generations. Of course, the southwestern part of the county is only a small part of the whole county. When horrified reactions barreled in from everywhere else in the county about his comment, he did a whole 360. He is not a bigot. He is currently espousing a five-point plan to right himself. He is seeking donations for the victim’s family; he is asking religious leaders to preach the need for tolerance; he’s called for schools to consider using the services of the Anti-Bias Task Force; he’s going to display the county’s anonymous 800-220-TIPS phone number more prominently; and he’s created a Hispanic liaison to the county police department. What he has not yet done, however, is say he will readdress and possibly repeal the anti-Hispanic laws that his administration has passed in the last three years and that we in other parts of the county continue to live with. As for how this specific crime has been dealt with, consider this. As things stand now, the killer, who said he was going out to get a Mexican and then once out bragged to the other seven with him that he would not only “get” but also kill one and then did — is charged not with murder in the first degree by the County, but with manslaughter. Really. To paraphrase Harry Golden, who said “Only in America,” I would add “Only in southwestern Suffolk County.”

What? Southampton Saves Open Space, Then Lets It Be Developed? By Dan Rattiner A hearing held last Thursday in Southampton seems to have highlighted an open space preservation program that has gone slightly berserk. A developer has bought 13 acres of open space that has already been preserved as farmland, and is proposing to put what appears to be a garden center on it. It is on Ocean Road in Bridgehampton, just north of the corner of Bridge Lane, and the land is not zoned for retail business. And yet, the developer of the land — there is no other adequate way to describe who is doing this — wants to make it into a garden center.
And it seems to be perfectly legal with the relaxed new rules that the Town has adopted involving agricultural uses of open space. In the old days, land and open space were preserved — absent the purchase of it — by two methods. One was for the Town or County to buy the development rights. A large farm would be threatened with development because it was being taxed as developable land and the farmer was not making enough to pay the real estate or inheritance taxes. So the Town would buy the “development rights,” thus reducing the value of the land that remained, since it could only be used for agricultural purposes.
The taxes would now be affordable. And the farmer would pocket a windfall. The other way, especially in the case of land that was not fertile enough to be properly farmed, was to allow it to be developed, but with the homes on it clustered to one side, with a large part of it left open as a nature preserve. Nothing could be built in a preserve. It would just remain wild and unused. The Town of Southampton, however, unlike East Hampton, has gotten it into its head to promote active farming by allowing the owners of this preserved land to do farming activities on it. Unlike “preserved” land, where the gen(continued on page 26)
SAG BRIDGE DEDICATED TO 19-YEAR OLD MARINE By Debbie Tuma Growing up in the tiny village of Sag Harbor, Jordan Haerter used to sit by the Sag Harbor/North Haven Bridge, near the wharf, and think about a future in the military. In a sad, ironic twist last Saturday morning, that very bridge was renamed the “Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter Veterans Memorial Bridge,” as a permanent memorial to this local marine. Haerter was killed in the line of duty in Iraq last April, at the age of 19. Hundreds of people lined the flag-draped bridge, and the Main Street behind, for a ribbon-cutting ceremony by state officials who
unanimously passed a bill (co-sponsored by Senator Ken LaValle and NYS Assemblyman Fred Thiele) to change its name in Haerter’s honor. “Although renaming this bridge will never fill the hole in the hearts of Jordan’s family, at least they know that his act of heroism will never be forgotten,” said Thiele. A U.S. Marine helicopter hovered overhead, as 40 of Haerter’s 1st Battalion, 9th Marine comrades, also known as “The Walking Dead,” stood at attention, in uniform, in Haerter’s honor. “We flew here from all over the country to pay tribute to our friend Jordan, who risked
his life to save us,” said Joshua Pitts, of the 1st Battalion, 9th Marines, who came from his home in Oakdale, Tennessee. “We wouldn’t be here without him.” Moments earlier, Haerter’s Commander, Lt. Colonel Brett Bourne, had explained to the crowd that on April 22, 2008, Haerter and another marine from the 2nd Battalion, 8th Marines had been guarding an entry gate of their unit’s compound in Ramadi, Iraq, when a large truck accelerated toward them without stopping. They opened fire, until the 2,000pound blast claimed their lives. (continued on page 24)

Action! Montauk is the Setting for Star-Studded, Big Time Film By David Lion Rattiner What do Pulp Fiction, Ditch Plains, Puff and Putt and The Montauk Pioneer all have in common? They come together in the new Hollywood film, Paper Man, featuring star actors Ryan Reynolds (Vanwilder, Blade, Trinity) Lisa Kudrow (“Friends”) Emma Stone (Superbad) and Jeff Daniels (Dumb and Dumber). Last week, production on Paper Man was in full force, with the cast and crew working every day on location in Montauk. It was a surreal moment to see Puff and Putt, Montauk’s old school miniature golf and family fun center open only in the summertime, awash with $10,000 cameras, elaborate lighting, A-list actors, craft tables, trucks, wires and of course, a director yelling “Action!” Paper Man is the story of a failed novelist (played by Jeff Daniels) who goes to Montauk
and develops an unlikely friendship with a teenage girl, played by Emma Stone. I headed down to the set after receiving an e-mail asking for permission to include The Montauk Pioneer in the film. After getting the go ahead from publisher Kathy Rae, I raced to Montauk to get the scoop. On the set I was introduced to directors Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney — the husband/wife team who wrote and are co-directing Paper Man. Approaching a crew member wearing a heavy winter jacket and winter hat, I asked, “How do you feel about shooting this movie in Montauk?” “I absolutely love Montauk. It is so peaceful here and the town is adorable. From a shooting perspective, we are able to get a lot done,” he said as he ran off onto the set. On the set, a scene was being shot with Emma Stone, who happily signed a few autographs for
some teenage fans that were walking by Puff and Putt. Richard N. Gladstein, one of the film’s producers, graciously allowed a few photos of the film crew in action. Gladstein has also been a producer on blockbuster films including The Bourne Identity, The Cider House Rules, Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs. At one point, Jeff Daniels was climbing into a black Mercedes Benz for a driving sequence. A camera was mounted to the side of the car. “That equipment looks really expensive. What’s that camera rig cost, ten grand?” I asked Gladstein. He turned to me and gave me look that said something like, “What are you kidding?” then answered, “You just have to make sure that nothing goes wrong.” Almost on cue, a crewmember began yelling (continued on next page)
MONTAUK PLAN: JUST STOP THE OCEAN, PLEASE By T.J. Clemente The timing — as timing seems to be lately — was most curious. As the Town of East Hampton is struggling to get its financial house in order, the Town’s Planning Board was in Montauk seeking input on what that village can do to make things better, particularly in the business area. The Montauk locals slowly arrived the evening of Thursday, Nov. 13 to the Montauk Fire House to complete a sort of “open house” for ideas. Under the direction of East Hampton Town Planning Director Marguerite Wolffsohn the meeting, attended by many members of the
health, engineering and Town Planning departments (including Town Engineer Thomas D. Talmage) was called to order. The number one concern of all who showed up was beach erosion, or as one fellow repeated, “If we don’t do anything, one storm will come by and wipe out the downtown, making the rest of these plans irrelevant.” The quagmire is that the ocean, which made all who own businesses in Montauk successful, is also the looming threat to the livelihood of those same people. Huddled around the table labeled “Recreation Parks and Drainage,” the residents seemed to be led by John Keeshan, Montauk’s Chamber of
Commerce 2008 Person of the Year. The soft spoken, well-informed Keeshan was direct and poignant, and Wolffsohn expressed that she heard what was being said. Everyone at the table realized that the cost of any plan to restrain the ocean — like getting more sand, having sand bags readily available, building necessary structures — flew in the face of the fact the town finances are already stretched. But the thought that even a severe Nor’easter could cause severe damage to the Town of Montauk as we know it was sobering. Lorraine Creegan, Director of the Montauk Chamber of Commerce, was all over (continued on next page)

“Stop the car!” as it drove off onto a pebble driveway. There was a big fuss as several other crewmembers ran toward the car, which was now stopped on the pebbles. This was apparently a danger to the equipment, probably because there was fear a rock would shoot up and damage the camera. Slowly the driver backed out of the driveway and then took an alternate route onto Montauk Highway. While Daniels was out shooting with the Mercedes, Stone was doing another scene. With nearly 100 cast members and crew standing around, holding microphones and setting up props at the Puff and Putt, director Michele Mulroney shouted, “Quiet on the set!” And it was. As I headed back to my car, Ryan Reynolds was standing in the middle of the road, right by the Runaways restaurant where many of the trucks and equipment for the movie were parked. He was about 100 yards or so away from the Puff and Putt. Reynolds is very tall — easily 6’ 4 — and he was eying the Puff and Putt set from a distance. After about two minutes of standing in the street, a black Lincoln Navigator pulled up and picked him up, then transported him to the Puff and Putt. While this type of protocol is normally required to protect famous actors from rabid fans, during the slow season in Montauk it looked a bit silly — even to the actor, who laughed and shook his head as he got in the truck to travel a few hundred feet. Paper Man will hit the theaters in 2009. Keep your eye out for the Pioneer’s film debut.

this issue saying something must be done soon. At the “Parking, Alleys and Public Transportation” table, Principal Planner Tara Powers listened to ideas to increase beach parking legally in town, as well as perhaps adding a beach shuttle for a simple reason: more legal parking means more visitors in town longer. At the “Sidewalks and Traffic” station, Assistant Planning Director Jo Anne Pahwul said the issues discussed were “free parking at Nick’s Beach and perhaps a small beach boardwalk there.” With Eric Schantz from the Town Heath Department and Director of Housing Tom Ruhle manning the “Motels, Housing and Business” station, the issues were affordable housing for seasonal workers and year round employees, as well as the difficulty in completing timely renovations on old buildings. At the “Design and Architecture” station, Maureen Ryan of the Planning Department stressed the integrity of the town’s appearance, hoping to foster more of the Carl Fisher Era look for downtown. Ideas were discussed about future building proposals to limit to the creative process within the borders of good taste and legality. Even though the ocean, storms and erosion were the big topics, the meeting elicited suggesT.J. Clemente

tions on other areas and allowed East Hampton Town government and Montauk hamlet residents to communicate about Montauk’s needs, ills and future. Wolffsohn stressed that this sort of meeting was to be held in all the hamlets of the Town of East Hampton. Her report may help procure grants and support decisions made by the Town Board. Wolffsohn said that ideas and recommendations from all the hamlets would be discussed at a meeting of the Planning Board and a document would be drafted. Before being finalized, that document would be presented to residents for public discussion. At the end of the meeting, Wolffsohn said, “I was happy with the turnout. We got lots of great comments and now we will list the priories, and come back with the draft resolutions.” The town staff worked tirelessly to answer every question. They listened to all suggestions and made notes throughout the evening. It was the best of town democracy at work — an example of small town America’s ability to participate in decisions and make a difference. When the meeting ended, I realized this was perhaps the most civil of all the Town Meetings I’ve covered in recent memory, perhaps because those in attendance were concerned forward thinkers who came together to find solutions.

Non-Musical Works of Art by Rock & Rollers An upcoming show at Duck Walk Vineyards, November 21-23, proves Neil Young to be on the money when he sings, “Hey hey, my my. Rock and roll will never die.” While Young was talking about works of music, the show at Duck Walk will feature works of art: It’s a visual history of rock and roll where every work is up for sale, making it possible to take home a little piece of that history with you The show features about 150 original artworks created by musicians including Paul McCartney, John Entwistle, Jerry Garcia and more, as well as rare lithographs, concert posters, photographs, gold records, animation art, handwritten lyrics and other memorabilia.
ny and turned the Rock Art Show into a nationally touring show. This is the third time the show has come to Duck Walk and the East End. Since people can purchase the artwork and memorabilia, the show is constantly changing. For example, Ron Campbell, who directed and animated The Beatles cartoon series and Yellow Submarine, creates new artwork based on that ani(continued on page 30)
Prices can range from $10 to $5,000. “There’s really something for everyone,” said Scott Segelbaum, who founded the art show in Los Angeles in 1992. “It’s just one of those things where you walk into the room, look around and think, ‘Wow, this is really cool.’ It’s a visual montage of rock history and it just draws you that much closer to your favorite artist.” He added, “We make sure we appeal to all price ranges, to all music fans, not just serious collectors. It’s something people can get excited about.” Those who come to the show will also be able to read about the history of each piece. Segelbaum, who is passionate about the show and the music it represents, will be on hand to give even more detailed info about each piece. And, he says, the show represents all genres of music, from the Rat Pack to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, with a heavy dose of classic rock acts like The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Grateful Dead. Segelbaum started the show when he was working at a radio station in the L.A. area, as a one-time charity event. “Ron Woods and Jerry Garcia had just put out art pieces,” he said. “It was interesting that all these rock and rollers were putting out art. I mean, it makes sense they’re using their creativity in other respects.” With the success of that event, attended by well known musicians such as Elton John, Stevie Nicks and Brian Wilson, he thought the idea had the potential to be expanded. Segelbaum brought the show to the east coast in 1999, when he moved to Philadelphia. Then, in 2004, he created a production compa-

“If they hadn’t stopped this suicide bomber truck, it could have exploded inside the compound, killing 33 Marines and 21 Iraqi police inside,” he said. “These two men fearlessly gave their lives in self defense.” Haerter was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart Medal, Combat Action Ribbon, the Iraqi Campaign Medal, Iraqi Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, and National Defense Medal. On Saturday, the crowds and numerous officials braved the pouring rain, huddling under tents to hear tributes. The ceremony, organized and led by Tom Toole, a retired Air Force Colonel of Sag Harbor, began with proclamation by Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy, who was joined by Congressman Tim Bishop, Sag Harbor Mayor Greg Ferraris, and North Haven Mayor Laura Nolan. Ferraris told of how he had accompanied the Haerter family when they brought their son’s body home to Sag Harbor. “We met the plane in New Jersey, and I witnessed patriotism like I’ve never seen before,” he said. “Jordan was truly a hero, and an asset to our village.” At a grassy spot near the bridge and wharf, Jordan Haerter was also honored with a tall, granite obelisk memorial monument, unveiled by his parents, Christian Haerter and JoAnn Lyles, of Sag Harbor. “There was nothing my son loved more than spending time here at the harbor, on this

wharf,” said Christian Haerter. “We are so appreciative that the whole village raised money for this monument.” “I admire my son’s discipline and courage. I
know he found his direction,” said his mother, JoAnn Lyles, of her only child. “I am now a gold star mother, which is not a club anyone wants to join, but the support of this close-knit community keeps me going.” Lyles added that her son’s cousin Jessica still maintains his web page to keep his memory alive. A 2006 graduate of Pierson High School in Sag Harbor, Haerter was described as “a responsible and serious student” by his grandmother, Lilly Haerter. She said that, at age 16, Jordan took flying lessons at East Hampton Airport, and learned to fly solo before he got his driver’s license. “As a child he always dressed as a soldier for Halloween, and he loved wearing a uniform,” said his grandmother. His grandfather, John Lyles, of South Carolina, said Haerter’s long-term goal was to join the Sag Harbor Police. “At his funeral service, the Sag Harbor Police and Southampton Town Police made him an honorary member of their forces, giving him badges,” he said. “But he never had a chance to live that dream, since he enlisted in the Marines right out of high school. After his boot camp training, he was only in Iraq one month when he was killed. But now he will never be forgotten in his hometown of Sag Harbor.” On the day before her son died, JoAnn Lyles received a letter from him, saying he was confident he had made the right choice, and he only worried about her.

Deep Water: FEMA Rejiggers Flood Map
Pope Holds Lead in SH Recount As the majority of the country voted Democratic on Nov. 4, so did the Town of Southampton, with Democrat Sally Pope officially besting incumbent Republican Dan Russo for a seat on the Town Board. Russo was appointed to the board last February to fill the shoes of Linda Kabot, who became Town Supervisor. However, it was a close race, coming down to the absentee ballots. As long as they were postmarked by Nov. 3, those ballots could be received by the Town for tallying until Nov. 12, and in the end, Pope won by several hundred votes – 12,582 to 11,750. Democrat Andrea Schiavoni was also named town justice, defeating incumbent Republican Thomas DeMayo 13,974 to 10,717.
ping showed that these areas were lower than what had been shown. The digital maps are accurate to plus/minus six inches.” The new mapping, which will take effect in December, 2009, shows a newly redefined floodplain that outlines specific areas as having high, moderate or low flood risk. A floodplain is defined as a typically dry area where water will pool or flow through during a 100-year storm. The term 100-year storm simply means that the area has a 1% chance of a major storm happening on any given year. According to Weberg, the Hurricane of ’38 would be in that storm category. So what is a homeowner to do if he or she is now in a flood zone? If you have or plan to get a mortgage from a federally backed lender, you are required to have flood insurance. (There’s a chance that if those who will be affected lock in rates now, they might be able to avoid higher premiums, at least in the short term. This is definitely a “call your insurance broker” issue.) Currently in Suffolk, flood insurance from the NFIP is guaranteed up to $250,000. Premiums vary from about $388 for the lowest risk designation to thousands in the highest risk areas. There are umbrella policies available with $250,000 deductibles (meaning you need a NFIP policy for the first $250,000) and additional insurance available above $250K from underwriters like Lloyds of London. The formal presentation in Southampton, cosponsored by FEMA, the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and Suffolk County Fire Rescue Emergency Services, will
now be followed by a 90-day comment period (from Nov. 14, 2008 to Feb. 11, 2009). During this time, homeowners can comment, contest and complain — as well as file appeals — on their new rating. According to Weberg, “If homeowners think something is wrong with the FEMA map, they can present that to us. It’s always due process.” He added that, because of the extensive work done and state of the art technology used, “the chances are pretty slim” that a property would be reclassified based on an appeal. In the meantime, those interested in where their house falls in the flood plain can go to suffolknyfloodmaps.com. Plug in your address, and you’ll get information, including whether or not you need additional insurance. Of course, most of the homes added to the list are right on or close to the Atlantic, so one must wonder if a few extra thousand dollars of insurance would matter much to property owners in the estate section. Weborg wondered the same, and he verified a final fact: If you have no mortgage on the property or paid cash for that manse on the beach, you are not required to get a penny of flood insurance. Homeowners who took the chance that their multi-million dollar investments would stand against a raging storm probably weren’t relying on that $250K of flood insurance to help them sleep at night on a bed that’s a few hundred feet from the ocean. And, after all the research he has reviewed for FEMA and his own scientific expertise, Weberg added, “If money was no object, that’s where I’d live. Right on Dune Road.”

By Susan Galardi Just when it seemed things couldn’t get worse (well, not exactly), there’s more bad news for some beleaguered property owners who live in the depreciating asset we call home. As most East Hamptonites brace themselves for increased property taxes to contribute to the town’s haggard economy, about 150 additional residents of East Hampton Village and Sagaponack will have to shell it out for flood insurance as a result of new flood hazard maps issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The new maps, known as DFIRMs (Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps) show areas prone to flooding during storms, changes in drainage patterns and other topographic details.. Based on the new mapping, (the first in 20 years) 15% fewer buildings (about 4,488 structures total) in all of Suffolk have actually been removed from the list of properties in flood zones. Those lucky homeowners may no longer be required to drop the dime on flood insurance, or depending on the change, may be able to pay lower premiums. Almost 500 homes were removed from the flood zone in the Town of Southampton (from 3,579 to 3,104), and about 100 the Town of East Hampton (from 1,632 to 1,512). But in the Villages of Sagaponack and East Hampton, the number of homes in the flood plain more than doubled — from 46 to 119 properties in Sagaponack, and from 60 to 146 in East Hampton Village. The maps, exhaustive information on flood insurance, engineers and insurance specialists from FEMA were available at a four-hour public meeting last Thursday at the Southampton Cultural Center. Upon entering, you were given a sheet of paper by a welcoming receptionist, who wrote in the address you were investigating. From there, you could meet with a FEMA rep at one of the four “Property Flood Risk ID Stations” at the front, to better understand changes in your designation. If desired, you could then meet with a specialist from the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). I sat with FEMA Senior Engineer Paul Weberg, asking him why new properties were added to the flood maps. “Because of the latest and greatest technology,” he said. “The new map-

eral public could just walk around through trails and generally enjoy it, preserved land that would now be farmed changes the playing field. The original â€œpreserveâ€? was not just for the use of the people in the development. But if you allow farming in a preserve, suddenly you donâ€™t want outsiders coming in. This may be good for agriculture, but it is bad for the taxpayers. In an â€œagricultural preserve,â€? for example, the owner of it, if he planted cabbages, might want to build high turkey wire fences to keep the deer out. This is a whole different thing than was originally intended. In any case, here we are, in Bridgehampton, with a proposal on 13 acres that is a set of plans that says right on it â€œFARM PLAN.â€? The plan for the farm consists of rows and rows of flowers, bushes, orchards and shrubs, all for sale to the general public. There is a driveway you come up to get to where you buy your shrubs, a loading area, a parking area for 16 cars, and three new buildings where there are none now â€” none of which are common farm buildings. One is called a barn, but inside are a storage area and equipment and tool room on the first floor, and an office and conference room on the second floor. Another building is a greenhouse, like you might see at either a garden center or on a farm, and the third is a fake windmill. Not only a fake windmill, but a fake Dutch windmill. As I recall, the Dutch never got farther out from New Amsterdam than the Jamaica Plain and Flushing, while the English settled the East
End. Nevertheless, in a land of a dozen beautiful and historic English windmills, they want to build a Dutch one. Whatever. I should say, incidentally, that from the plans each of these three buildings, plus a fourth equipment shed, would, if built, be really stunning and beautiful 19th century reproductions. And I should also say that the pathways through the proposed â€œflower farm,â€? (garden center), are as lovely as pathways through an English garden. Nevertheless, this is a residential neighborhood. And itâ€™s a long way from a farm stand on the street in front of a field of vegetables and flowers behind. Today, this would not be a legal project in East Hampton Town. It would not even be a legal project in Southampton Town. But things have changed. And now the town wants to encourage farming in ways nobody thought of before. I can give you lots of examples of the lengths that Southampton Town went to in the past to keep open space as open space and to strictly enforce farming as a wholesale-only business. A big hew and cry went up years ago when Jeff White, in Sagaponack, built a greenhouse on his farm as a place to sell plants and flowers at retail. It is still there today â€” it is Liberty Farms on Sagg Main â€” but it was quite a battle before White, the farmer, finally prevailed. One who did not prevail was Tony Tiska, who owned a big potato farm at the corner of Scuttlehole Road and Millstone in Bridgehampton. Tiska opted for the plan
where you sell your development rights to the town, but then got in trouble when he leased some of his farmland to a polo club and then the polo club built stables on the leased land to house their polo ponies. The polo people put forward the somewhat lame argument that these stables were to â€œraiseâ€? polo ponies. But, of course, they were just keeping them there between matches and until it was time to send them back to Argentina. In the end, the stables had to be removed. And the polo club moved their operation to the Entenman Farm in Calverton. Then there was the regulating of farm stands. The town saw, correctly, that a farm stand is a retail business. And though they wanted to encourage them, they didnâ€™t want to make farmers markets out of residential streets. Rather ridiculous, but I guess necessary, laws were passed about farm stands. It could only be a certain number of square feet. At least 70% of everything being sold had to be raised in the field behind the farm stand â€” not the field down the block, but behind the farm stand. And the other 30% had to be accessory stuff to what was being raised. If you raised corn, you could sell corn fritters, or cornbread. And finally, the whole thing had to be temporary enough to be removed at the end of every summer season. Particularly interesting is the fact that, although in the old days developers were perfectly content to set aside a natural â€œpreserveâ€? (continued on page 29)
