7 Ways to Tell Ahead of Time
If You’re Selecting the Right Landscaper. 1. Will they complete the job within budget? Marders gives you a firm cost, not a +/- 10% or so guesstimate.
2. Will they complete the job on time? Our crews are on our payroll and are trained by us. They remain on your site until the job is finished.
3. Do they provide a written guarantee? Marders gives you a 2-year written guarantee which we’ve stood behind for some 30 years.
4. Will they get all the necessary permits, apply for variances, appear before Town or Village Zoning Boards, etc.? Do they know the local regulations? Often violations are discovered after the job is started costing time and money to remedy.
5. Will you have to settle for a cookiecutter design? Most landscapers have a limited variety of trees to sell you. The result is cookie-cutter landscaping. About half of our multi-million dollar inventory is big and/or unusual trees and our Buyer works with our national network of Growers.
6. Do they have a design staff? While we have our own designers, our account managers work well with other Landscape Architects and Landscape Designers.

7. Do they use and understand organic landscape solutions? Marders has pioneered and perfected the use of organics in our landscape and property care.

The radar tower at Montauk, pointing...
Montauk Trouble Officials Investigate Why Abandoned Radar Dish Turns Some By Dan Rattiner Last Wednesday morning, police received a call from a citizen who lives in the Camp Hero housing development just one mile from the giant 11story abandoned military radar tower saying that when he woke up he observed that the dish atop the tower had moved about 90 degrees counterclockwise from where it had been the night before. When he went to bed, it was pointing to the northwest as it always has. When he woke up, it was pointed to the northeast. It has not moved at all since 1966, this man said, since it had served its final day for the Air Force and was decommissioned. He thought it startling that the dish was now turned in another direction. The call was transferred to the Montauk Police Annex in the center of downtown Montauk where an officer was dispatched to the scene. The dish was indeed pointing to the northeast. Even though this officer was a longtime Montauk resident, he could not remember if that was different from the direction it always pointed. He thought that perhaps the caller was playing a trick on him and that it had always pointed to the northeast. He went to see the caller, Howard Edelstein, who was adamant that he had seen it move. And so, the officer asked around. Nine people said that even though the dish looms over the landscape at
110 feet, they never noticed before which way it pointed. But one old timer, Max McLaughlin, said he remembered that it pointed northwest and when he looked at it, he became agitated and said that it very definitely had moved. This radar tower, part of the Cold War, was designed and erected shortly after the World War II to act as a deterrent and possible early warning system in the event of incoming Soviet nuclear missiles. Nearly 150 airmen lived at the
the scene since it was now believed that it had indeed moved, and that it might have come loose from its moorings up there atop its concrete tower. The tower rises 90 feet with the steel dish 20 feet high and 40 feet wide atop it. Ladders were put up to the side of the tower. But they did not reach far enough up, and so it was decided to abandon the fire department effort because the dish might be tipsy and dangerous and possibly come down on top of everybody at any time and what could they accomplish up there anyway? As a result of this, the fire department and police put a police cordon around the base of the tower until the Parks Department could dispatch experts to deal with the situation, which was scheduled for Friday. The dish did not move at all on Wednesday night or Thursday, but on Friday morning it was found that the dish was facing southeast, another counter clockwise move of 90 degrees. Again, it had apparently moved during the night. A team of 15 experts from the New York City Bridge and Flange Repair Company arrived in three trucks on Friday around noon. It was a warm day and there was a big crowd of people behind the police barrier out there to watch. Men in helmets with climbing equipment and pickax-

Later that day, police made a further call to an official at the New York State Park Commission office in Sayville, who said they had checked the plans and since the radar tower and the support housing had been made into a state park exhibit in 2002, it had been pointed to the northwest. The Montauk Fire Department was called to

es spent an hour atop the tower and said the dish showed no sign of being moved whatsoever and that the heavy bolts, though rusted a bit, were still holding it in position fast and there was no danger of it falling or coming loose whatsoever. “It’s as solid as a rock,” the foremen from NYCBFRC said. At the suggestion of a Montauk war veteran at the scene, retired Air Force Colonel George Pincus, who said he had known air force officers who worked at the Air Force Base (which he said was the 772nd) in the 1960s, it was decided to put a call out to experts in the military who, with blueprints of the interior of the tower, could go inside to see what was causing the movement. To that end, the plywood covers of the doorframes to the tower were removed. A police cordon remained at the tower all Friday night and on Saturday morning. Through the good offices of the Coast Guard Air Rescue Squadron at the Gabreski Airport in Westhampton, Army Engineers were contacted with the original plans and about a dozen experts came out in helicopters on Saturday afternoon to go inside the interior of the concrete base to determine what had come loose. The experts spent a day inside and came out with the report that everything inside was frozen solid and it was impossible for anything to move to make the dish turn. “We are back to ground zero,” said Chief Fred Button of the East Hampton Town Police, who was leading the investigation. Saturday night, a team of 10 police officers and detectives remained on an all night vigil at the
radar tower. The dish did not move Saturday night. On Sunday night, the police took a different approach. Feeling that perhaps local teenagers were involved in this as a prank, the cordon was removed and plainclothesmen were dispatched to loiter at the scene all night, some disguised as campers on the beach, others as fishermen or hikers. Three went to some of the homes in the Camp Hero development where some homeowners had volunteered to allow them to conduct a vigil from the attics of their homes all night. It was hoped they would catch the perpetrators in the act. But the tower did not move that night. On Monday, East Hampton Town Supervisor Bill McGintee ordered the stakeout to be discontinued “for budgetary reasons,” is what he said. East Hampton Town finances are in a shambles. They need to save every penny. “Nothing is coming of this,” he told a press conference Monday afternoon. On Tuesday morning, it was found that the radar dish had moved from southeast to northwest to point to where it was when all this activity began six days earlier. As we go to press, everyone is waiting with bated breath today, Tuesday, to see what is going to happen tonight. “Frankly, I’m scared,” said Paul Peterson, who lives on South Edgemere Road in Montauk.

Louis F. Spero, Project Manager, Facilities Design & Construction at Stony Brook Southampton, was killed in an automobile accident on Wednesday afternoon, April 29, on Sunrise Highway in Westhampton. He was 60 years old. Spero’s pick up truck was hit by a 2001 Chrysler driven by Paul Nelson, 35, who was found to be under the influence of drugs. Spero lost control of his vehicle, which flipped in the center median. Spero, who regularly traveled between Stony Brook’s two campuses, oversaw many projects, including the restoration of the campus Windmill, which involved extensive research and creativity. The blades were restored by hand using specially picked spruce trees, trucked in from outside the region. Spero, led the renovation of Atlantic Hall, previously a library when this property was owned by LIU, and his nuances and care for preserving the history of the building are prevalent. Most consider his most remarkable work — his masterpiece — to be the renovation of the Avram Theater (see related article on Page 19). According to colleagues, Spiro was detail oriented, and an excellent team leader who cared deeply about his workers while nurturing their best work and instilling pride in craftsmanship.

Look What’s Happening! Southampton College Becoming Major “Green” Institution By Dan Rattiner Much of the effort of this newspaper during the last five years has been aimed at coaxing the State University system to take over what had become the crumbling wreck of the Southampton campus of Long Island University. LIU, out of money and ideas, was about to abandon the 200-hundred acre Southampton campus upon which, with high hopes in a previous era, it had built nearly 40 brick buildings to house 1,500 students. Its new and last idea, now, was to sell the failed school to a real estate developer. Everything would be bulldozed down. There would be 20 residences, all with ocean views. The life and times of this school, whose population
represented a significant component of the economy of Southampton Village, would be no more. Of course, this newspaper was only one among many who fought and banged the drum to get SUNY to come in and take this mess over. Among the many leaders who led this effort were Congressman Tim Bishop, who had been the provost of the old college, State Assemblyman Fred Thiele, State Senator Ken LaValle and so many civic, business and media leaders I could not possibly name them all. The person everyone wanted to persuade was Shirley Strum Kenny, the longtime chancellor of the State University of Stony Brook, a 15,000student university campus 50 miles to our west.
Kenny needed no persuading. But she needed to get all her ducks in a row to persuade the State of New York to fund the effort. It would cost a $100 million or more. Well, as I am sure you know, there is no housing development. One and a half years ago, the sale was made. LIU was gone, its leaders tarred and feathered and tied to an outbound railroad train. And in came the people from Stony Brook, filled with ideas and energy and the means to make them come true. Construction crews were on the campus as they cut the ribbon. Last Tuesday, for two hours, I was given a tour of the premises by officials from the school. The (continued on next page)
CAR VANDALISM & BURGLARIES IN EAST HAMPTON By Dan Rattiner East Hampton was hit with a series of car related attempted burglaries, hate crimes and vandalism during the month of April. At night on Saturday, April 4, more than 20 residents reported car damage in East Hampton Town on Gerard Drive, Woodbine Drive, Springs Fireplace Road and Whalebone Landing Road. Meanwhile, in East Hampton Village there were reports of damage to six cars that night on the Circle off Main Street, Cooper Lane and the parking lot behind Main Street. How many other attacks occurred that night without having been reported is
unknown. All damage was similar enough for the two police department to attribute it to several people working together. Windows and windshields were smashed with heavy objects, mirrors were ripped off, car doors were keyed and in two cases, attempts were made to pry open the doors to expensive locked cars, apparently using crowbars, for the purpose of stealing what was inside. Two cars were declared total losses, one that belongs to a local architect, the other to a local nurse. Further damage was done to a car on Gerard Drive the following Saturday night, April 11,
and still another act of vandalism took place to a parked car on Gerard Drive on Monday, April 20. On at least one occasion, an obscenity was written with a sharp object three feet high on the side of a car, the job going right down to the metal. The cars damaged are both expensive and inexpensive models. There seems to be no distinction made between the two. It is disturbing to think that some sick individual or individuals would do this. Police note that the first of these attacks occurred on the Saturday night of the beginning of the local high school’s spring vacation. They say they (continued on page 32)

tour would end with my meeting the new dean, Mary C. Pearl, in her office for lunch. Then I would go home. To say what has happened here is beyond my wildest dreams would be an understatement. The impact this place is going to have on the Hamptons is extraordinary. I almost cried with joy when I completed this tour. For the rest of this article, I willll tell you what I saw. SUNY has hit the ground running. The new freshman class will arrive in just five months. The school will be ready. Our first stop was the huge, but never completed, college library. Construction on it had begun four years ago by LIU. And then it was abandoned. Whatever LIU had intended to do has been torn out. The new college started the inside over, and when I toured it with a hardhat, here at the end of April, there were probably 60 workmen inside, putting together what the new college had in mind at a sort of fast trot. The building will be done before summer is out. I was walked through the college by construction project manager, Lou Spero. The first floor features an enormous classroom 40 by 80 feet, which, using moving partitions, can be divided into either two or three smaller classrooms. There is a computer room and some back offices. On the second floor, there is the entry from the college lawn, a glass lobby, a café, reception, and behind it, a big open study area with a high ceiling and a balcony running above it along one long wall. This third floor balcony is adjacent to a lounge, more classrooms, offices and confer-
ences rooms for faculty. Books and reference? This is the 21st century. Other than the private papers from the Pollock-Krasner House in East Hampton and other important collections, all will be accesse by computer, with Stony Brook’s enormous 1 million-book library 50 miles away. In front of this big library was the old original library for LIU that was now being replaced. It has been remodeled and is open and functioning as Atlantic Hall. It is the student resources center and inside there is the dean of students, a counseling and planning center, career services, health services and other student facilities. We went to the Avram Theatre, where I met Leonard Ziembiewicz, the theatre manager, and Mark Fasanella, the gallery curator. The entire 300-seat theatre has been completely remodeled. Where there was cinderblock, there is now polished wood. Where there were antiquated audiovisual lighting with projection done from a booth, there is still the booth, but the heart of the operation now is a state-of-the-art remote controlled projection computer that hangs over the audience from the high ceiling. It consists of two digital 4000 lumen video projectors, which create one extremely sharp and bright image on the big silver screen that can lower from the top of the stage. The stage itself and back stage are all new and shortly there will begin summer theatre — there will be a troupe in residence — and then all sorts of performances and shows almost every night during the school year, including a literature conference, Pianofest, a lecture series (climate change and marine science prominently) a Southampton children’s literature playwriting
studio (with a grade school in Southampton), an ensemble studio theatre group doing new works, film festivals and the annual Writer’s Conference, held every summer for the past six years, one of the few bright spots created for this school by LIU. The lobby gallery has been redone. There is a new gallery now, created just off it. All the classrooms are refurbished and in the theatre itself, the old seating is gone. Now there are 300 new seats. There is also a new stage. The Student Center is another surprise. Two years ago, the directors of a play I wrote held a rehearsal in this filthy, dimly lit, loud, cinderblock establishment offering hamburgers and hot dogs. It has been completely remodeled, and the overriding feeling in it now is openness, glass, light, foliage and wood. Gone are the hot dogs and chips. Now the cafeteria steam tables, overseen by a chef with a degree from the Culinary Institute, produces wraps, hummus, freshly baked goods and smoothies. Welcome to the world of healthy food and green recycling. (What look like disposable plastic knives, forks and spoons were in fact spudware, reusable utensils made from potatoes.) A lounge area featured a Ping-Pong table, a pool table, a TV and some sofas. Behind one glass wall is the wellness center, weights and barbells and exercise machines. Behind another glass wall is the bookstore. The school is pondering sweatshirts that might read Stony Brook Southampton, its new name. Everything new being built is “green.” We vis(continued on page 34)

Restaurant Battle Who Owns Madame Tong’s? Dispute on Front Lawn in SH By Dan Rattiner Last week, I wrote a story about a restaurant in Sag Harbor that fell into my hands because the prior owner failed to pay for his advertising in Dan’s Papers. I’d taken him to court. He ignored court. The judge gave his decision to the sheriff and he ignored that. There was an auction outside his front door and he ignored that. So there, when the sheriff told me that I could have the restaurant for the money owed, I took it. Now there was a journalist who couldn’t even boil water owning a restaurant. I got out of that as soon as I could. Free at last. There are lots of restaurant stories.
Long ago, I was in a restaurant in Bridgehampton having steak and fries one evening when the kitchen caught fire and soon, with lights flashing and horns blaring outside, the firemen arrived and proceeded to lay hose between the tables. “Excuse me, excuse me,” one of the firemen said. White smoke was soon billowing out from the swinging doors to the kitchen. After that came the burnt wet stink. Our waiter appeared. “At the end of the meal,” he said proudly, “the owner wishes to offer you dessert on the house.” A few years later — I wasn’t there when
this happened — at a restaurant in Montauk on Labor Day weekend, the owner came out of the kitchen, stood on a chair and announced to his packed house of diners chattering away that everybody should get out, he’d had it and he was going home. “It’s all no charge. Just leave everything. Go,” he shouted hysterically. Then he got down, slammed the door behind him, after which the diners got up, leaving the food on their plates, and quietly left along with the waiters, kitchen staff, maitre d’ and cash register girl. What a night that must have been. (Details for both of the above upon request.) (continued on next page)
STIMULUS MONEY TO THE RESCUE HERE By T.J. Clemente There are some bright spots on the East End even now, under the dark cloud of economic turndown. When revenue in so many sectors is not up to levels expected or needed, there comes actions by the government though various stimulus packages. Some of those have been brought to East End towns by their elected representatives in the Congress. For many months there has been much talk about helping Main Street, but where Wall Street executives of failed firms received million dollar bonuses, nothing seemed to be trickling down to the local town level. With so many
promises from Federal officials of both parties to provide help for those toxic mortgages, in some cases dubiously acquired or given somehow at the last minute, the money always seemed to be diverted to large bank holding companies. However there is some good news locally that deserves to have a bit of light shined upon it. With so many companies, towns and banks talking record deficits, it’s amazing that in Westhampton, Gabreski Airport will actually be operating in the black for the first time in 39 years, and in fact may have a whopping $1.8 million surplus at the end of 2009 (about the
size of a bonus for a unsuccessful A.I.G. stooge). Since 1970, the airport has been run by the county, which took it over from the Federal government. In the past, the county used to have to kick in around $6 million to make up for deficits. The estimates are that the airport has cost the county tens of millions to run it. So why the surplus now? The reason very well may be the increased income brought in by the National Guard, but the fact is, no one is being laid off because business is down and salaries at the airport are not be scaled back. So kudos to the Gabreski Airport staff and (continued on page 28)

Realty, who had lent him a huge sum of money last summer to help keep Jean Luc open. He and Pike disagreed about the amount soon after that, and when it got nasty, an argument ensued. Pike asked for the keys to the restaurant and Jean Luc gave him two checks for $295,000. This was a month ago. The checks bounced. Pike went to the police, and shortly after that Jean Luc turned himself in to answer charges that he was writing bad checks. Jean Luc also went on the offensive. He contacted the media. “This guy is a concrete cement contractor with a criminal record,” he said. It made Page Six. He’s to be in court on May 18. Now he had called the police on Pike. “This is just a civil matter and we are work-

The first restaurant altercation this year took place out front of Madame Tong’s on Elm Street in Southampton last Saturday afternoon. It was a beautiful, sunny day. The staff and owner were there, busily running around getting the place ready for a grand opening. Then this guy and two workmen show up with plywood, hammers and nails. They announced they were boarding up the building. Ed Kleefield, the restaurant owner, who everybody knows as Jean Luc, called the police and said that this man was trespassing. The police shortly arrived. A big dustup followed. Turned out that Jean Luc knew this guy. He was Lyle Pike, the owner of Sagaponack
ing it out,” Jean Luc said to the police, when asked about the other arrest. “But I want this man arrested for trespassing.” “The place is MINE,” Pike responded. Apparently, in addition to the bounced check, Jean Luc had signed over the lease. He produced it. But Jean Luc had a trump card. He had gotten an order from a judge that prohibited Pike from ever coming to his restaurant. “I’ll show it to you,” Jean Luc said, and ran into the restaurant and returned with it. Pike asked to look at it, and seemed puzzled as he read it through. “I’ve never seen this before,” Pike said. “It also says the owner of the building is barred. And it’s dated last October.” The owner of the building, Lance Nill, lives just a few houses away and the commotion and flashing lights in front of his building down the way had him alarmed. A small crowd of people had now assembled. Two kids on bicycles stopped for a while. There was shouting. Lots of papers were being handed around. Various lawyers now arrived, David Gilmartin for Jean Luc and Joe Salvi for Pike. Now there were even more papers. Nill walked over. The police officer showed him Jean Luc’s order of protection. “Pike is the tenant,” Nill told the police. “He’s the one who’s been paying the rent for the last five months. That’s who I want to deal with.” The lead officer on the scene for all of this was Anthony Gallo, and he scratched his head. But then Jean Luc mentioned there were people living upstairs. Restaurant employees, apparently. And that did it. “The tenants make this a different matter,” he said. And he explained to Salvi that the plywood could not be used because the tenants upstairs could not be boarded in, nor could they be ordered to leave without proper eviction papers, the serving of which would take months. “In addition to their rights, there’s the matter of not boarding up fire exits when people are in a building,” he said. Pike and Salvi retreated toward the cars. Pike mumbled something about not being a loan shark or some mafia kneecap guy, as Jean Luc had portrayed him in the media. Gilmartin assured the police officer that Jean Luc had every intention of paying Pike back, they just had to agree on the amount. And then everybody went on their way. Restaurants can be fun for all sorts of reasons. I proposed to my wife in one last August. But that’s another story. It was in Manhattan at Josephine’s and because the tables along the wall are very close together there, everybody heard me do it. But that’s another story. Jean Luc is either the owner or part owner of Prime 103 in East Hampton, Grappa and JLX Bistro in Sag Harbor and Madame Tong’s on Elm Street in Southampton. Grappa is open weekends. The others will all be open by Memorial Day, he says. The food was good last time I ate in those places. If all goes well, all should be open soon. Go for the adventure.

Tradition, Tradition Time-Honored Practices in the Hamptons Worth Revisiting By Susan Galardi Last summer, there was a fair in Sag Harbor with a climbing wall, live music and stands offering a mishmosh of engaging carnival games. But there was a clear crowd favorite among the activities: A table where you could make your very own fish print T-shirt. It went like this: You bought a white T-shirt and flattened it out on the table. Then, from a bucket of water thick and murky with paint, you pulled out a dead fish of your choosing — fluke, striper, etc. You slapped the dead fish down next to the T-shirt and painted it with colors or designs of your liking. Flop the painted side of the fish down on the T-shirt, press
firmly, lift off gingerly and, voila! A fish print Tshirt! A woman working the stand was proud as punch of the popular offering. “We’ve been doing it since the ‘80s,” she beamed. Here in the Hamptons, we love tradition. Out of the passion for it grows a dedication to preservation, keeping things the way they’ve always been, just like in the good old days. And so we maintain our traditions — the fun or quirky ones like giant clam contests, polar bear plunges and artist/writer baseball games. We bemoan lost traditions — getting fresh cinnamon doughnuts at the “real” Dreesens, rubbing elbows with artsy types at the Elaine Benson Gallery, getting dolled up for tea
dances at the Swamp, flipping properties for fun and profit. We wring our hands over centuries-old endangered traditions like farming, fishing and working the bays for a living. But from time to time, even diehard preservationists are ready to let go of a tradition, like having an open cesspool in your back yard. For practical reasons, those kinds of traditions have happily gone the way of, well, having an open cesspool in your back yard. Other historic practices, like the selling and buying of “Indians” have simply fallen out of favor.

SUSAN BOYLE, BIRD STRIKES AND WOODY ALLEN By Dan Rattiner The FAA held a press conference about bird strikes the other day. The number of birds is increasing. The number of strikes is up. But the damage is down. They’ve abandoned scarecrows and hoot owls on the runways because the birds have gotten used to them. But they are finding some success scaring the birds by firing salute cannons when the birds are on the runway. The gun is fired. The birds take off. Then the plane takes off. Hopefully, they keep that straight. How can bird strikes be up but the damage down? Three theories. Birds have better reflex-
es. (Practice makes perfect.) Pilots have better reflexes. (Practice makes perfect.) There’s been a change in bird tactics. General Goose stands at the front of the crowd. Okay, this isn’t working out. Our losses are staggering. The only double hit we had resulted in a pancake landing in the Hudson and the guy is a hero. We’re going to try diplomatic negotiations. We use the runways Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. They use them Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Meantime, keep up the strikes but reduce the squadron sizes. We want the enemy to be aware we can still do this, but we don’t want
anybody hurt. Keep it up, rat a tat tat, in the background. And no heroics. The birds, by the way, call these incidents Plane Strikes. The FAA released an animated video of the strike that caused the Hudson River landing. This joins the ever-growing list of video games where you can see how many times you can land successfully in the Hudson. As for Sacramento, it’s on the Pacific Flyway. Stay away from Sacramento. * * * Susan Boyle, the homely Scottish spinster (continued on page 26)

for $40 to toil on a farm. He escaped, and went to work on a whaleboat.) One tradition that carries its own tradition of controversy, is hunting. Considering that many people want to limit or ban the activity, it was a surprise last summer when the East Hampton Town Board actually approved the opposite: expanding hunting to eight new areas, five of which allowed big-game hunting with big firearms. The big game season ended January 30. But during that month, people complained about piercing shots jabbing through the quiet woods as they took their wary dogs out for the first walk of the day. One reported incident came from homeowners who witnessed, over their morning coffee, a group of hunters in an open field near an upscale residential area, shooting a deer and dragging the carcass through the field and across the lawn of an unoccupied house for sale. But hunting is a tradition and traditions must be preserved! And as many residents, design review boards and historical societies attest, the East End is hell bent on preserving preservationism. In addition to its historical society, East Hampton has not one but now two town historians, with the board recently voting in Averill Geus to work with Stuart Vorpahl. Geus, nee Dayton, has a family history on the East End that goes back to the 1650s. She knows from tradition. In addition, the Skidmore-educated historian and writer authored the volume From Sea to Sea, 350 years of East Hampton History, which chroni-
cles many historic practices in these parts. Maybe some deserve a second look. Right now, everyone’s grasping for answers to problems from economic and environmental woes to rampant corruption and greed. Maybe there are some East Hampton traditions that could benefit the environment, help the beleaguered town save or raise money, or bring justice for all. Algonquin Indians made wampum on Long Island from the 1600s into the 1800s. These strings of white beads were currency, used to pay ransoms and, according to Geus’s book, “buy a murder or pay off a punishment.” Hmmm. Using currency to avoid punishment … Nah. That would never work. But the Shinnecocks are poised for national recognition by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and once that happens, we’ll get a casino. Hopefully, gamblers will actually have cash by then, but if not, now is the time to revert to wampum and more wampum. Here’s a revenue generating idea. The towns have raised the price of parking permits at the beaches again. From the 1890s to early 1900s, a member of the Conklin family set up shop on a beach in East Hampton, renting out women’s bathing suits. “That’s the way they made a living,” said Geus at lunch recently in Bridgehampton. The suits were actually long, heavy woolen dresses — just think of the sun block they afforded. The dresses, which would be rented to several different people during a single day, ended up weighing about 30 pounds when wet. Granted, this could be a disadvan-
tage if you’re caught in a riptide. And then there’s that hygiene issue ... On second thought, maybe we should all just pay the extra $25 for permits. To hell with those expensive, time-gobbling hearings and court cases. Way back when, if someone did something untoward in East Hampton, vigilantes “dunked” him in the pond. “Ebenezer Dayton was a peddler,” said Geus. “He came to town, sick with the measles, and went to church and infected a lot of people.” Ebenezer was given a good dunking by a group of men, led by “a fellow named Chatfield,” said Geus. “Ebenezer hired Aaron Burr, and won the court case.” So, as it turns out, vigilanteism was not tolerated in these parts. Someone really should tell Steve Levy about this. Privateering — the plunder of enemy ships at sea — was legalized by England in 1690s. American merchants were forced to produce an income to help pay the royal debts, so the kings made it easy by legitimizing theft. It worked for Enron, and almost worked for Madoff. And there are plenty of pirates in the news these days. Looks like a revival is already well underway. Finally, up until the early 1900s on Wiborg beach in East Hampton, whalers processed blubber at a tryworks. Squares of whale blubber were cut out and boiled down in trypots for oil. “It stank,” said Geus. “Nobody went down there.” Sure it smells! But so does diesel fuel. Has anyone looked into the possibility of running a car on whale blubber oil? Oh wait, hunting whales is illegal. But hunting deer isn’t …

Word on the Street: East Hampton
Tommy, above, and Coach staking their claims on Main Street
By T.J. Clemente The beat goes on toward the first weekend of the summer season when all the stores, boutiques, restaurants and other businesses are poised and stocked to accommodate the increase in customer traffic. With a new season comes
change, new energy and optimism. In the historic village of East Hampton, most activity is clustered within the store fronts on Main Street and Newtown Lane. With strict restrictions on store sign sizes, a ban on neon lights and other strict regulations (that in some cases go back to the ordinances of trustee’s wishes in the mid 1600s) entrepreneurs have always taken their chances and usually done well. In the face of curious times, this season is no different. Marina Van, the Director of the Village of East Hampton Chamber of Commerce, has some interesting views on the direction and trend of new businesses coming to the village. The Chamber has around 300 members in its directory, and Van has her finger on the pulse. This year some of the notable new businesses coming to the Village consist of national corporate companies who are investing in the “brand” of the Village of East Hampton, in hopes of increasing their futures earnings. Despite a common outcry against losing the mom and pop feel in the villages, Van welcomes this trend say-
ing, “We [the Chamber members] are really grateful about our corporate stores in East Hampton.” Why? Because, she said, “Corporate stores employ local people all years round, they give visitors all year round places to shop.” Van explained how the chamber gets calls in the off season from tourists asking which shops will be open, and believes that the well financed corporate stores insure that visitors will drive out for a “Hamptons experience” all year round, based on the ability to shop. Hal Zwick, a commercial real estate specialist at Devlin McNiff reports, “Eight years ago there were five of the top 500 national brands on Main Street; now there are over 20.” Van listed some of the new businesses coming to the famed East Hampton, whose appearance many believe makes it the most beautiful village in the country. Opening this season will be a Hermes shop featuring the world renowned women scarves as well as all their other lines of high end accessories demanded worldwide.

to leave the country for the Central American jungle from a judge (the judge refused) and then he flunked the audition. Now he says he’s going to promote the show anyway, and they’re going to have him on as some sort of game show host assistant bringing the votes out to the chief or something. The idea of “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here” is that they set you down in the jungle, snakes and spiders bite you and the studio audience and the general public decide which of these third-rate celebrities gets the axe. They axe one a week. The last one standing wins some money. People will just do anything for money. If people were told they could be on TV if they’d agree to be smacked in the nose with a wooden mallet they’d ask when. NBC came up with the idea of this game show and looked to see who could possibly be the most miserable third-rate celebrities to put into this thing and came up with Blagojevich. They offered him $60,000. He got all excited. What is this man thinking? His world logic seems to be “I am really cute, so no matter what I do, it must be right, which means I can do anything and it would be a big hit.” Perhaps after this gig, he’ll become a professional wrestler. He has to put food on the table after all. Is this man married, by the way? * * * IBM has announced that it has developed a computer that can beat a human on “Jeopardy.” Scientists say that if this is true, this will represent a huge advance in machine
intelligence that will make the computer that beat the tar out of World Champion Chess player Garry Kasparov look like a simpleton. * * * Woody Allen has filed a lawsuit against an ad agency in Los Angeles for using his image without his permission. A full-length photograph of Allen wearing these nicely made Italian three-piece suits that have apparently been put on him digitally appears on billboards in California. The amount he is demanding is $20 million to compensate him for the ruination of his reputation. This was a really stupid thing the ad agency did, and I don’t approve of it. But on the other hand, the agency has hired a really creative lawyer who apparently feels that the best defense is a good offense. He is arguing that the value of an image of Allen on a billboard is not worth $20 million at all. It is worth just a little more than nothing. And the reason is that Allen has already ruined his own reputation. Since this approach sort of concedes that what was done was wrong, it now immediately opens the court to a discussion of the value of the fine to be imposed, and that means a discussion of exactly what his reputation is worth. They will bring up his scandalous courtship of Soon-Yi, numerous bad movies and who knows what else. In the end, Allen will get nothing but an apology, a handshake, a whole lot of bad publicity and the plot for his next movie. I wonder if this has all been planned ahead.

who conquered the world with her unbelievable voice on “Britain’s Got Talent,” has gotten a makeover. It’s the worst thing imaginable. She came out just as herself, with no chance whatsoever of impressing anybody, and issued forth such a completely unexpected and stunning performance that it just made everybody’s hair stand on end. What a surprise! Now she looks 10 years younger and all duded up could pass for somebody who might have a chance, so who cares? She’s ruined herself. And who thought of doing this makeover anyway? Get rid of it, girl. Meanwhile, things are getting worse. Simon Cowell announces, “Hey girl, you haven’t won it yet. There’s still lots of competition.” I know, I know, somebody told him he had to do this to save the show. But it is impossible. This man has no brain. It’s over, Cowell. A hundred million people are dazzled. She has to win. So there goes the show for the rest of the season. The latest report from “American Idol” and “Britain’s Got Talent” is that both Cowell and Paula Abdul are saying this will be their last season with these shows. Ugly can do this. As you probably heard, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, he of the bad hair, the spinning moral compass, impeachment and indictment, has flunked his attempt to get on the new reality show “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here.” He certainly did screw up. He announced he was going to be on the show before it was agreed upon. He hadn’t yet gotten permission

includes more than $4 million in funding for environmental and waterways projects in eastern Brookhaven, Southampton and East Hampton towns. This legislation will provide $3.2 million in federal dollars for dredging the Shinnecock Inlet, which will restore the channel through the offshore sandbar and address shoaling in the inlet fairway. A minor dredging project at Moriches Inlet, also expected to cost $100,000, is also funded by the bill. For Montauk Harbor the bill will provide $650,000 of Federal funds for dredging. Due to shoaling, the inlet to the harbor in foul weather is perilous and almost impossible for navigating large fishing boats — even as statistics confirm that Montauk is the state’s largest commercial seafood port. Also in the legislation
is a tidy $119,000 to investigate possible solutions to the shoaling at the inlet. Another $190,000 will go to the expansion of the revetment studies by the Army Corps of Engineers to save the Montauk Lighthouse from falling into the ocean due to erosion of Turtle Hill, where the Lighthouse is located. As for the North Fork, Congressman Tim Bishop announced funding to the amount of $196,000 to study environmental conditions and problems in the Forge River, a tributary off western Moriches Bay in Brookhaven Town. Finally the Town of Southampton has requested, through U.S. Senator “Chuck” Schumer, aid for the village to the tune of $3 million to stimulate the local economy through federal spending on municipal projects. The village officials gave the Senator a list of their 11 high priority projects. More than half of those shovel-ready suggestions have to do with flooding and drainage in the village. The six proposed projects amount to $2.3 million, the costliest proposal being a $1.9 million plan to install runoff retention and recharge on Windmill Lane, a major watershed area that drains into Lake Agawam. Stimulus is coming to the East End due to the efforts of some elected federal officials. The fact that all of the officials are Democrats, as is the majority of both Houses of Congress, plus the President and even the Governor of New York, probably helps gets things done quickly at this time when “quickly” can help create millions of dollars for local workers.
Airport Manager Tony Ceglio. The Shinnecock Reservation is a great place to buy cheaper cigarettes but no one has ever said the Indians are living in acute affluence — in fact many live closer to the poverty line. Therefore, it was good news indeed that congressman Tim Bishop’s request for $190K to be applied to building the new $2.3 million day care and early learning center on the Shinnecock Indian Nation Reservation, came through, via the $410 billion federal omnibus bill approved by both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. That federal appropriations bill, practically completed in Congress (passed in the House, and voted for in the Senate, in final conference), is almost at the point of being signed by President Obama also

Honoring the Artist: Melissa Hornung Polo Club. I also play croquet; from the courts we can see the polo pre-games. At 3 p.m. there are the big polo finals from the week. I get a chance to talk to some of the greats involved in polo. Q: Like who? I donâ€™t know much about polo, but I respect people who play. A: Thereâ€™s Nacho Figuerres, whoâ€™s in the Hamptons a lot, and Neil Hirst from Bridgehampton. The whole polo world comes here, people from Australia, Great Britain, Argentina. Q: Why specifically are you there, besides the obvious appealing life style? A: I came to learn how to play polo better; my trainer is Maurico Devient who runs Meadowbrook Polo Field. I also love to be a part of the polo culture. Q: Thereâ€™s something about the culture that does afford freedom. Your cover is about that theme. Where did you get the idea for it? A: It was a photograph I saw, and I did my own interpretation of it. It struck an emotion with me. Anyone can feel this freedom. It reminds us of who we are. The image is also about spring, when we see fresh flowers and life coming back. It inspires excitement. Q: Itâ€™s obvious that polo also inspires excitement in you, and itâ€™s certainly emotional. What Holly Gannon
A call to this weekâ€™s cover artist Melissa Hornung always brings surprises. Recently, we found her in Palm Beach waiting to engage in a scrimmage for polo. If we had called her later in the summer, she would have been in the Hamptons or Saratoga, New York, working on the two things she loves best: polo and painting. No matter what Hornung is doing, however, she clearly enjoys a love of life that fuels her curiosity and passion about making things better in the world. Sheâ€™s also committed to making herself better. Regarding her paintings, the cover is a good example of another quality close to Hornungâ€™s heart: the idea of freedom that the young girl feels as she runs through the grass. Q: What are you doing in Palm Beach? The last time we spoke, you were at home attending to your horses. A: I found Nirvana in Palm Beach; actually itâ€™s Wellington which is near there. Nowhere in the world can you get what Wellington offers. Itâ€™s the passport to the world as far as polo goes. I have met some of the most educated and interesting people here. They have become my friends. Q: So your life is much different now that youâ€™re spending seven or eight months in Florida and then going to New York state in the summer. When youâ€™re in Wellington, whatâ€™s a typical day like? A: Let me tell you about a typical Sunday which is really fun. I paint everyday, thatâ€™s constant. Then I go to brunch at the International
else attracts you to polo? A: I have absolute respect and admiration for polo. And also the connection between the animals and their riders. People have a perception that polo is only for rich people. But thatâ€™s not true. For example in Argentina, children are born with a mallet. They play it on their bikes instead of on horses. Q: Like kids in New York used to play stick ball, eh? A: Right. You have to be hardworking, passionate and love horses to play polo. And you donâ€™t have to be a rider. You can enjoy watching. Itâ€™s thrilling to hear the thundering hoofs of the horses, to see good sportsmanship, to see people take care of each other. Q: Quite frankly, Iâ€™m not sure I would like watching. Itâ€™s so dangerous. I shiver to think about it. A: Yes. It is dangerous when a 1,200-pound horse can flip over on you. But itâ€™s worth it. Connecting to your horse makes you aware of your whole body. Your horse listens to you; when you squeeze his right side, he turns left. Horses also make you a better person. Q: How does connecting to your horse make you a better painter? A: When Iâ€™m happy, I paint better. â€” Marion Wolberg Weiss

By Dan Rattiner Week of May 9 – 16, 2009 Riders this week: 13, 477 Rider miles this week: 88,023 DOWN IN THE TUBE Madonna was seen riding the subway from Southampton to Water Mill. She was one of just five passengers in her car and she was listening to an iPod and pole dancing. Colson Whitehead, the young author of the stunning new book Sag Harbor, was on the Sag Harbor platform waiting for a train. He was reading last year’s big book In the Hamptons. ONLINE SUGGESTION BOX STOLEN The Hampton Subway Internet suggestion box, where riders can anonymously send e-mail suggestions without fear of reprisal, has now been stolen. With the theft of the original wooden suggestion box from the wall on the platform at Hampton Bays three weeks ago, there is now no way to make suggestions to the Hampton Subway. EXCITEMENT IN SOUTHAMPTON A gangland style heist at a bank on Main Street was thwarted by Gladys Henderson, our alert token booth clerk, last Friday afternoon.
STRAPHANGERS OBJECT TO DINING CAR A petition signed by 21,014 straphangers has been presented to the subway’s main office in Hampton Bays. It says that the just opened Le Somielle dining car is an affront to working people since all it really is, is a French restaurant with slow service that results in their not being able to get anything to eat before they arrive at where they are going. Also, the prices are so high only those very rich actually not going anywhere except around and around can afford it. The smell of this excellent French food in the other cars, particularly to those who have not yet had their morning coffee, drives everybody crazy.
Apparently, a getaway car with two thugs inside pulled up in front of the Chemical Bank at 2 p.m., and one wearing a mask got out, ran into the bank, pointed an index finger and demanded “your money or your life” of teller Iris Thimblefellow. She swiftly handed over $156,000 in cash to the thug, who stuffed it in a black luggage case, then ran out of the bank, up the street and down the subway stairs to the Southampton platform and the token booth. The driver of the getaway car then drove 100 feet and re-parked in front of the Southampton Ice Cream Shop. He was meant to be a decoy while the main robber made his getaway apparently, because when police came to question him, he was sitting on a bench outside eating an ice cream cone and said he knew nothing about anything. A search of the car revealed nothing. The police had to let him go. Meanwhile, the masked burglar with the luggage case shoved $2 bills under the glass of the token booth and said, “One to Southampton.” Gladys was startled by this since he was already on the Southampton platform, but she obliged, and he ran off and hopped the next train. Gladys then called the police, told them what had happened and that it was odd he’d said Southampton, and so the police arrived en masse and waited 40 minutes until the train made its

COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE I am vacationing here in Acapulco at a hermetically sealed oceanfront resort. I have just learned of the quick work made of the robber who took the subway to Southampton. I propose Gladys Henderson be employee of the month if we have not already selected one. I have also been told about the petition. I have immediately contacted our board, and by a vote of 4 to 3, have gotten approval of a new rule that would prohibit bringing any firearms on board any of our subways. This is a ban system wide. Severe fines will accrue to those who try this. As for the dining car, we have a one-year lease

a second store, paying almost $1 million in rent for their new location at 14 Main Street, just east of the movie theater. Also coming to Main Street is designer Tommy Hilfiger, whose shop will be where Coach once was. Coach has moved to a larger presence on Newtown Lane. Van also mentioned a still unnamed gallery was moving to the storefront that was once home to Caldwell Banker Real Estate on Newtown Lane, restoring the several times removed Morgan Rank space to a gallery. “We are lucky that corporate stores believe East Hampton is a great investment,” said Van, who has been with the Chamber since 1993. To her earlier point, she noted that Tiffany’s is open seven days a week throughout the year. “They (corporate stores) get people to work all
year round. Tommy Hilfiger is really excited about opening and has hired a local person to manage the store.” Also opening, now with a corporate edge, will be the legendary dive bar The Blue Parrot. When the iconic bar/restaurant closed three years ago, owner, surfer, and actor Lee Bieler said, “It was some ride from Main Street America to Corporate America.” Little did he realize how prophetic that statement was. Some of the former Parrot employees say things are going to be different at the bar, which has been spruced up for its re-opening around May 18. Finally, Bridgehampton National Bank is building a new branch of the local bank near John Marshall Elementary School. When asked to make a forecast on business in

the immediate future in the village, Van was guarded. She said there was no doubt that the winter was a “tough one,” for local businesses. She said that summers are “always busy and good, but the big question mark will be the fall.” That is just one of many questions that face the businesses in the Hamptons, but I like the view of Kevin O’Connor, CEO of Bridgehampton National Bank, “We have that ocean.” Therein lies the longterm strength of business out here. The ocean can’t be taxed away, legislated away, or removed and relocated. And when it gets hot, people will flock to the beaches and to the villages accessible to those beaches. Thus is the secret of business success of the Hamptons, because without the wonderful Atlantic Ocean, beautiful East Hampton is just another Toledo, Ohio or Gary, Indiana.

have leads and are working on the case. If others have had damage such as this and have not yet reported it to the police, they should do so. The cars damaged have been either on narrow streets or in short private driveways where they are pulled in but still quite near to the street. People living on narrow streets in East Hampton Town or any other towns should be on the lookout for people doing this sort of thing. If it occurs, be sure to report it to the police. Organizing a neighborhood watch might also be a good idea. Hopefully, whoever has done this will be caught, and repatriation of the costs borne by the victims demanded.

It chronicles the riots, escalators gone berserk, explosions, boxing matches, subway car races and the 90 pound raccoon that ate an environmentalist during the attempt to remove her from the subway air vent in Hampton Bays.

DAN'S PAPERS, May 8, 2009 Page 33 www.danshamptons.com
The Pressure to Go Green By T.J. Clemente Lost in the maze of neverending problems facing the homeowner is the pressure to go “green” — preferably as quickly as possible before the next run on energy pirces. Although those costs are almost 50% lower than last year at this time, who truly believes that they are not eventually going to go back to record levels once the economy is nolonger the focus? In the heat of the last spike in oil prices, the entire country was on a quest to find an alternative — solar cars, solar heated pools, solar bathrooms. Recently, Southampton added solar laws to the books that force green construction of newly built swimming pools and homes. But then the mental landscape changed when the world banking system seemed poised to collapse. Going green became less of a priority. However one person who has not abandoned the beating of the green drum is New York State Assemblyman Fred Thiele of the 2nd District which, as he describes it, basically covers “from Montauk Point to the William Floyd Parkway,” with the Hamptons neatly tucked in. Discussing the challenges of going green, Thiele explained that, “The initial cost is the barrier; everyone wants to do it but coming
up with that big number when you are saving or paying college tuitions or things of that nature makes it tough.” So in the last year, while the bright light was on the banking mess, Thiele has introduced three separate bills to further his cause. He explained that the first bill deals with a “Real property tax credit for the purchase of solar power.” The concept is to somehow help finance that initial cost of going green. His second bill, in his own words, is one, “Authorizing local governments to finance solar improvements on behalf of homeowners and businesses. Local government would front the money for the improvements by issuance of a low interest, tax exempt bond, and it would be repaid by those who install solar through an assessment over a 30 year period. This would remove the large upfront cost that discourages this investment. Boulder, Colorado and Berkeley, California are already doing this successfully.” Thiele said that he’s thinking long term here. He will be against any off shore drilling around Long Island and will forever oppose any concept of nuclear power on Long Island. He is in favor of wind power and solar power concepts being explored and developed.
His third bill, also introduced to the State Assembly this year, was meant to “Create a feed-in tariff program to provide a payment of 32 cents per kilowatt as an incentive for all excess solar energy sold back to utility companies by homeowners and businesses who install solar. The current rate is about 1/3 of that. California and Ontario, Canada are already doing this.” Thiele acknowledged that the legislation will need some heavy lifting but he’s sure he’s on the right side of the issue and that time will prove that. He himself is exploring the best ways to most efficiently convert the new home he just inherited. “It’s the initial cost, that’s the barrier I am trying to break away with my legislation,” he said. While Thiele knows most people accept that going green is the right thing for the future, with so many costs screaming out to be paid daily, the homeowner must choose what needs to paid immediately. Last year, fuel prices were the big issue, but now that’s not the case. And now, with gas prices back to around $2.00, even that gas guzzling SUV doesn’t seem so bad. A wise old fishing buddy said, “I know how many miles per hour my boat gets at various speeds, basically how many MPH my car gets, but who truly know how many MPH their house gets?” When it comes to getting clear on exactly what that house MPH is, Assemblyman Fred Thiele is on the ball, still thinking green.

ited a greenhouse, all new, where the flowers and plants grown will be shortly put around the property. Fans cool the place. An overhead wind powered propeller provides power. A recycled wood pellet furnace provides heat. Outside, a baseball field built to major league specifications is being constructed. Bulldozers were spreading out the baseline dirt as we watched. The new field will be for the students nine months a year and in the summer the site of the new semi-pro baseball league team from Southampton, the Southampton Breakers. Other fields are set up for softball, soccer and lacrosse. The new dean, appointed March 9 after a sixmonth search, is Mary C. Pearl, an energetic young woman who for the last 15 years has built the non-profit Wildlife Trust from an office of
three clerks and herself into a global organization with projects in 20 countries. Lunch was wraps and black bean salad and what we thought was iced tea, but which, when sipped, turned out to be diet Coke. Bah! We opted for a pitcher of ice water. That will be corrected. The entire concept for this school, as envisioned by Kenny, is environmental studies, and Pearl has been charged with the job of making it a reality. There had been 300 students on campus during the transition year, last year. This September there will be 500 new students. “President Obama is changing the direction of the country,” Pearl told me. “There will be thousands of green jobs. We will be training students to fill those jobs.” The college is not being organized around aca-
demic departments. It is being organized around majors. In the undergraduate school, there are to be people majoring in marine science, ecosystems and human impact (one could go on to be an environmental lawyer, Pearl said,) sustainability (nutrition, social science and art), coastal environmental science, environmental humanities, marine vertebrate biology and environmental design, policy and planning. There will also be a B.S. degree offered in business management with a specialization in sustainable business. Studies in marine science were the greatest strength of the old LIU campus. But there was also a strong literary and writing component. At the new Stony Brook Southampton, in addition to the annual Writers’ Conference, there will be a master degree in writing and fine arts. There are only a few places in the country that offer such an array of green courses of study. Southampton, which had such trouble getting itself a proper name under the LIU regime, could properly be called an institute, if the powers that be had a mind to call it that. But it will remain Stony Brook Southampton. I told Pearl the story of President Harry Marmion’s attempts with the LIU board in Brooklyn to get Southampton a proper name 15 years ago. When Marmion was hired, the place was called the Southampton Campus of LIU. Marmion wanted to have it renamed Southampton College of LIU. He proposed it to the wealthy Gold Coast millionaires who controlled LIU from its headquarter offices in Brooklyn, and they thought him uppity and threatened to fire him. This was just one of their four campuses after all. Some called it a twig. Brooklyn suggested it be called the Southampton Center of LIU as a compromise. Marmion told them this was not a shopping mall. Compromise having not been reached and the new name Southampton Center put on all the stationery, they then demoted him from president to chancellor. Then they fired him. After that, things went downhill. If you needed a roll of toilet paper, a pencil pusher in Brooklyn had to approve. Soon, all the steam went out of the Southampton Center of LIU. I thought it a fair story to tell an incoming leader. But I could sure see that everybody was on the same page this time around. And the energy everywhere on the campus was contagious. What can I say? When Pearl told me that the County Health Department had approved the sewage plant that they will shortly build — something that Marmion could never get LIU to agree to — she said that actually they are going to build both the regular sewage plant, and in addition, a SECOND sewage plant, entirely green and biodegradable. “We’ll build both, get licensed with the first one, then try the other and, if they don’t like it, we’ll go back to the first. But we think they will like the new environmental plant. Stony Brook Southampton will be a model for the future. And we will teach those to tell others to spread the word.” Could any of this have turned out better? The dedication of the newly refurbished college windmill will take place on June 14. * * * (Tragically, Lou Spero was in a fatal car accident the day after this tour. See article, page 18.)

The Sheltered Islander Patty: “Go get the kids’ car seats! They’ll never take us alive!” Dan’s Papers May 8 Edition: Islanders Repel Saggies! An attempt was made by the residents of Sag Harbor earlier this week to commandeer a Shelter Island Ferry. Islanders, in a valiant attempt to save their vessel, put up a noble fight until their ship ran aground and the superior numbers on the beach overwhelmed them. Choosing to destroy the vessel rather that have it and all its technology fall into the hands of an envious neighbor, the Islanders set the boat ablaze. Sag Harborians saw the smoke from all
points of town, and thinking it was just a hell of a bonfire, hundreds arrived with marshmallows and beer. Several Saggies, obviously under the influence, claimed they were attacked with toasters, child seats and other objects as they attempted to board and assist in what appeared to be an out of control ferry. These two tribes have lived together in peace for generations, separated only by a thin strip of water. We can only hope that the peace of the South Fork will be restored and the Islanders will give up their obvious attempt to create a new landing zone on the Sag Harbor beach. We will publish updates as we receive them.

AP - Wed Apr 15, 8:20 pm ET MADISON, Wis. – A nurse was called out of surgery so a manager could tell her she was being laid off ... The Madison-based health care provider announced Wednesday that it planned to “immediately” lay off 90 employees. Dean Health spokesman Paul Pitas said the incident happened at Dean’s West Clinic in Madison on Wednesday or Thursday. Pitas declined to name the employees involved or what type of surgery the nurse was attending when she was called away. * * * I’ve heard of getting laid off on short notice, but this really takes the cake. The employers should at least let you finish your shift before laying you off. Geez, what if that happened here? Patty: “Look at the ferry guys, Mary, they just took our money, now they’re coming back this way again. Wait a minute, they’re handing money over to people, what’s going on?” Ferry Worker: “We just got a call, we’ve all been laid off effective immediately. We’re giving everybody their money back before we leave.” Patty: “Whaddaya mean leave? You can’t go in the middle of the trip! You gotta get us docked and off the boat!” Ferry Worker: “The heck we do! We’re being picked up now. You people will be fine, the tide is coming in, you’ll run aground on the Sag Harbor beach.” Patty: “I don’t wanna run aground in Sag Harbor, I wanna run aground at Bridgehampton Commons! Wait! Come back here! Mary: “Forget it, they’re all going over the side on a rope ladder. That clam boat is picking them up. Everybody’s getting out of their cars, let’s see what we can figure out together.” Passenger 1: “We’re drifting sideways, can’t we straighten the boat out somehow?” Patty: “You can go up in the wheelhouse and try to drive, but it’s like trying to steer a giant soap dish.” Mary: “Well, we’re moving fast enough. I can see people on the beach starting to stand up and look at us. HEY! On the beach! Get your kids out of the water!” Patty: “Some of the men are running into the water, what are they going to do? Swim out to us? They should just stay where they are, we’ll be there in a minute. Unless, of course ... they’re going to try to board us.” Passenger 2: “That’s it! Those Sag Harborians have wanted their ferry for years, they’re going to try to board us and take our ship!” Passenger 1: “Not without a fight! Attention everyone! Prepare to repel boarders!” Patty: “Search your cars for whatever can be used for a weapon!” Passenger 1: “Here they come! I count six men, but that’s probably just the first wave. Cast off the rope ladder! Mary: “Patty! What are you doing? I have to return that toaster to Target.” Patty: “It’s no longer a toaster, it has been repurposed: It is now a defense weapon! Watch this! Hey! Saggie! Smile!” Mary: “Bull’s eye! Way to go Patty, you knocked him out!”

Twentysomething…By David Lion Rattiner Rehearsing
I have a small role in the upcoming show Anything Goes produced by The Springs Community Theater at Guild Hall in East Hampton. The show opens this weekend, and for the last week we have been singing, rehearsing and building sets at the newly renovated John Drew Theater in Guild Hall. The multi-million dollar renovation is truly and amazing sight to see. As an actor in the show that will be the first musical on this stage since the renovation, I think it will be pretty cool to take the new stage out on its maiden voyage and feel it come alive. The new renovation is a reminder of just how fortunate those in local theater have it out here. Every detail of the building and theater are first rate, including the dressing rooms downstairs, which has a French drain system, showers and loads of space. The electronic equipment in the theater, also state of the art, includes a communication system that can be heard throughout the entire stage, but not in the audience. Theatergoers will be pleased. Putting together a set however, is still done the old fashioned way. Last Saturday and Sunday I spent most of the day with the cast, including director Peter Fitzgerald who, drenched in sweat, was barking out orders like a mad man, building a giant wooden set in the shape of a large cruise ship. No new technology here, just some wood,

paint, saws and screws. Saw dust was flying everywhere, as local builder Glen Rozzi sawed away. Other members of the cast were painting and measuring while others showed up with coffee and doughnuts. I started to screw down some stairs as the entire theater blasted rock and roll music. This is what it’s all about, I thought. It was very cool to see so many people get so involved in the set design. I really felt like I was in some kind of Disney movie. The work seemed endless, and before the actual dress rehearsal started at 6 p.m., I snuck away at 5 p.m. and took a nap at Main Beach for an hour. It was a long day and it was going to be a long night.
When I got back there was some discussion about how Bernie Madoff’s name had been crossed off of the list of donors to the John Drew Theater, which subsequently turned into a very surprisingly discussion about the economy, which was kind of surreal considering most of us were in the middle of putting on sailor costumes or looking over lines in the script. “TOP OF ACT ONE!” Peter bellowed out. Play time was over and we slapped on our hats and took a glance at our scripts for one last memory check. What the hell do I say after Moonface pulls out the machine gun? Do I come out before the song “Public Enemy Number One” starts or do I come out afterwards? Where the hell is my right shoe? Oh my God, I got to get my ass out on stage! Jay Bennett, the musical director of the show started to tickle the ivory as the actors scurried about hitting their marks. By day we were journalists, construction workers, teachers, hair dressers and students, but for the last two months, by night we were actors and performers in the musical production of Anything Goes and to all of us that means a lot. I know of very few other activities that tune the senses and focus the mind more than doing live theater. “HOLD ON! HOLD ON A SECOND!” Peter yelled out. “CAN SOMEBODY FIX THAT DOOR THAT KEEPS OPENING PLEASE? IT’S VERY DISTRACTING!” I love this crap.

Special Section: Wine Editor’s Letter: Blind Ambition By Susan Whitney Simm In his book A Hedonist in the Cellar, novelist and raconteur Jay McInerney recounts a story about how, late for a dinner party at a posh restaurant, he is asked by the hostess of the assemblage to identify the wine being served, which had been decanted and so had to be tasted blind. McInerney swirls and sniffs. “Haut Brion,” he declares. Gasps rise from the small group. He takes a sip. “1982,” he adds to the amazement and delight of the lucky diners. He later admits to having an edge, knowing that his hostess knew her vintages and that she had a penchant for First Growth Bordeaux. Still, this is an impressive feat. The reason I know how difficult it can be to identify wines blind is because David and I began a tradition five years ago during which we decant about ten Merlot-based wines, usually five locals, two or three from France, one Cali and a ringer or two, and invite a few friends, including a couple of local winemakers, to taste them in late fall. The results are amazing – we elicit our own gasps from the crowd when the identities are revealed at the end of the tasting – with local wines always scoring in the top three, and this is against such fierce competition as La Mission Haut Brion and Cheval Blanc. In fact, first prize at the Third Annual Great Bordeaux-Style Wine Tasting, held in 2007, was the 2001 Lenz Estate Merlot, made in an Old World style, which retails for an incredible $23 at the winery. As we have yet to arrive at a fairer way to taste wines blind – writer Hugh Johnson cites a comment from a long-forgotten winemaker in his wonderful autobiography, Uncorked, who declared that “I make my wines to go with food, not other wines” – we continue our tradition with the lineup. But last year, becoming difficult as it did with the economy in freefall at the end of summer, we decided to hold a much more informal tasting, or rather a series of mini (continued on page 42)
The Wine Bubble Don’t Miss This Opportunity To Taste Greatness For Less By Christopher S. Miller Along with the financial and housing markets, the wine industry has changed during this recession. As with all economic downturns, alcohol consumption is up, but luxury items are way down, and this includes luxury wines. Conspicuous consumption and greed appear to have gone the way of Ponzi schemes; they are still around, just not quite as popular any more. Gone are the days of impressing fellow diners at four-star restaurants by selecting that elusive vintage of Petrus or Screaming Eagle for a paltry few grand. After a decade of high end wine prices escalating with every vintage, with wines becoming more collectible and sparsely allocated, the tide seems to have turned. As with Hamptons real estate, everyone is wondering where the bottom is. In other words, when should we start collecting again, whether it be wine or houses? Fortunately, collecting wine was never for me. I am a wine drinker and, luckily, my years of being in the restaurant and wine industries have offered me many opportunities to drink extraordinary wines at all stages of their evolution. Too young, too old, and sometimes, ahhh! Just right. But there is good news for wine buyers. There are an amazing number of stunning opportunities right now. Some importers and distributors are being squeezed by their bankers (or accountants) to lower their inventory. When this happens, offers come tumbling out, such as great vintage Champagne that sells for less than non-vintage Veuve-Clicquot! Wine collectors and wine drinkers don’t mind having some of their wine ageing in a cool place, but distributors and importers get pushed by their wineries to take the next vintage and wineries are pushed by their bankers to move their latest vintage out. Prior to September 2008, it was the distributors

and importers that were begging their producers to send the next vintage of that “hot” wine and the winemakers begging for some more time for the wine to settle and evolve before selling. So basically the whole high-end wine market has been turned on its head. Instead of customers begging their merchants and restaurants for the next vintage of that 95-point wine and those same merchants and restaurants doing the same begging to their distributors and importers for more hard-to-get wines, the formula has reversed. Some of the shifts we are experiencing in wine markets will be temporary. Others may stay around for good. As a wine consultant, I am in the precarious position of guessing which patterns will be which. Highly allocated wines (those generally in short supply) being readily available is temporary. The dumping of expensive wines by the wine industry pipeline will also end eventually. The pricing of wines at fine wine stores and some restaurants is seeing some adjustment, but will this last when the recession fades? Also, some restaurants are becoming increasingly creative with their wine programs, offering half price wine nights, free corkage nights, etc. How long will that last? But perhaps the biggest question mark for wine stores is the future of wine sales in grocery stores. This did not make the grade this year in New York, but came pretty close. If it happens, how can wine stores be prepared to compete and continue to offer a great wine experience for the consumer? If you think I have the answers, try again. I can only make an educated guess, and hopefully my insight into all things vinous will help with the guesswork. I have consistently said that great wines from great vintages will still have a strong market. At the moment that area has been soft, but there are some real sage buyers taking the money that would have gone into Bordeaux for 2006 and 2007 vintages and buying 2005 and other great vintages that are already on the market. In addition, the Asian auction market seems to be waking up from its winter recession slumber and the other auction markets should and are beginning to slowly follow suit. As the wine auction prices escalate the rest of the market usually follows. This, however, may take a bit more time as restaurant wine buying is still very weak, and this goes back to allocations. Allocations of wines have been an issue for some time with the darling producers all wanting to sell direct to the consumer, skipping the retailers and wanting to have their wines in the best restaurants. With the demand of restaurant wines down, these “blue chip” producers are now faced with unsold inventory or offering their wines to the wine stores that have traditionally begged for such wines as Caymus Special Selection, J. Phelps Insignia, Pahlmeyer, Leonetti, Carlisle, DuMOL, Hirsch, Talbott, Pride and Montelena. The list goes on. These wines used to be “under the table” wines. In other words, wines that may have literally been hidden under tables at trade tastings and trotted out when the “right buyer” arrives at the producer’s table. Lately I have seen such wines sitting openly on tables at tastings, not just in Manhattan, but out on Long Island as well. Recently, anyone at these tastings was able to compare wines such as Caymus Special (continued on next page)
DAN'S PAPERS, May 1, 2009 Page 41 www.danshamptons.com
(continued from previous page)
Selection Cabernet Sauvignon to Duckhorn, Cain 5, Diamond Creek and J. Phelps Insignia, all sitting out for all to taste. A truly unusual site for wines that buyers had to beg for just a year ago. At one tasting I was stunned to see three single vineyard Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignons virtually ignored! Some buyers didnâ€™t know the pedigree of the winery, while others just donâ€™t have a customer for such wine in this economy. (By the way, all three were stunning, with the Gravelly Meadow being my favorite.) So changes are afoot, but how long these changes will last before the wine market marches on is the question of the moment. We also wonder which changes will not revert back to their old roaring â€˜90s heyday. But if we see some stability in the housing market in the next few months, our little holiday from allocated and exorbitantly priced wines will be over a year from now or sooner. My advice? Enjoy it while it lasts. That 1982 Latour may never be as affordable (I know, itâ€™s all relative) as it is at this moment again and, letâ€™s face it, neither us nor the wine is getting any younger. Just be sure to wait to pull the cork until I can find your house. Christopher Miller is the Senior Wine Writer for Danâ€™s Papers â€œWine Guides.â€?

tastings, with just two guests – us. For our first tasting, in lieu of drinking blind, we opened a 2005 Chateau Lascombes, a second growth Margaux (25,000 cases produced in 2005) that had been in decline for decades. Wine critic Robert Parker had rated the wines in the 80- and even 70point range during the 1980s and 90s, but since 2000 he has given it 90 points and higher. The property was acquired that year by an American company, Colony Capital, who brought aboard Chateau Reignac’s Yves Vatelot to oversee winemaking along with Michel Roland to consult. The results have been impressive. According to Parker, Lascombes “has now become one

of Margaux’s top wines, even challenging Palmer and Chateau Margaux.” The 2005, which is 52 percent Cab Sauvignon and 45 percent Merlot, received 95 points, and currently at about $70 a bottle (less than its release price) it is a very good buy compared to Palmer (97 points, $300 and up) and Margaux (98 points, $850 plus). It drinks well now but you should let it age for a couple of decades if you can refrain from opening it. Not always an easy task for us. Our second tasting was partially blind: David knew, I didn’t. He made a big fuss over surprising me, so I was immediately suspicious. I hate to pull old bottles from their horizontal perch in the cellar and crack them open – they only do this in movies where people know nothing about wine – because you are nearly guaranteed to get a mouthful of sediment. David knew better. Right? I put my nose in the glass. It had to be Chateau Clinet, a well-respected Pommerol that is one of my favorites. Okay. I’d be fine with this (he would have stood it up for at least a day, so this surprise must have been planned ahead) as long as it was the 1995, of which we have a few. Another sniff. Uh-oh. This could be the 1990 Clinet, which is much pricier and much harder to find. Not to mention our last bottle. A sip. Another sip. Yes, this is the 1990. I tried to enjoy it while I wracked my brain about where I’d find another. “Give up?” asked David. “I hope it’s the 1995 Clinet, but I’m afraid it’s the ‘90.” David grinned and spun the bottle around. Surprise! It was the 2000 Lenz “Old Vines” Merlot. Great acidity, bright red fruit, long finish. This wonderful wine is no longer available, but winemaker Eric Fry believes that the 2001 “Old Vines” Merlot will be every bit its equal, given a little more time, if not superior. Our last micro tasting was the result of a wine Photo by Susan Whitney Simm
David scavenged from the bottom of a dusty bin at a local wine shop. “It’s not extravagant, is it?” I asked. “No, don’t worry,” he said over his cell phone. Dinner was well underway when David walked in. I promised to stay out of the dining room while he poured, but I noticed that he had brought out the good Burgundy glasses, the first reminder that “extravagant” can be relative. I swirled the pale red wine in the gorgeous glass before catching the scent. Wow! “What do you think?” David asked. “If I didn’t know better I’d swear this is from the Cote de Nuits,” I said, naming my favorite (and coincidentally most expensive) wine region in the world. I took a sip. “In fact,” I continued, “I must be wrong, but I believe this is LeRoy,” my favorite producer of great red Burgundy. David looked stunned. “Yes! That’s incredible! What vintage?” he asked. “Hmm, I’d say 1989.” “Well, it’s actually the 1999 Maison LeRoy Bourgogne” said David, still visibly impressed. This wine is a true bargain, costing somewhere around $40. It was a great find. The fruit had retreated a bit, and the wine was showing its age (unlike a Domaine LeRoy from a great vineyard like La Tache, which will age for decades but put you back at least a grand, if you can find one). But the unmistakable terrior of the Cote de Nuits was in every sip, and it was glorious. I will always be impressed with Jay McInerney’s story about the 1982 Haut Brion, surely the result of a lifetime’s passion for great wine, and it reminds me of how far I have to go. But remarkably, one glass of LeRoy later, I am so much closer to owning it. Susan Whitney Simm is Dan’s Papers Wine Guide editor.

In Times of Belt Tightening — COOKIES! By Betti Sands Store-bought cookies offer uniform flavor and consistency, an eternal shelf life and an inferior quality of life. I don’t mean to knock any household favorites, but there isn’t anything quite like a fresh-baked, homemade cookie. If you are among the baking-challenged, “homemade” might be a forgotten concept, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Even if you are a gifted baker, finding the time to devote to baking can be challenging. Fortunately, there are some who have made it their livelihood to step in where others default. Their business is not only to recreate the taste of home, but also to deliver them right to it. Lisa’s Cookie Shop, founded in 2004 and based in Warwick NY, is just such an artisan bakery. After leaving a corporate post in Manhattan to start a family, Lisa Ciriello started the business by baking cookies in her kitchen. When she shopped her homestyle cookies around, the response was far greater than she could have imagined, and to accommodate the surplus of orders, she and her husband built a commercial bakery on their property.

SHAKSHUKA WITH PEPPERS AND ONIONS A popular Israeli egg-based dish, which means ‘all mixed up.’ Serves 4-6 1/4 cup canola oil 1 large red bell pepper, cored, seeded and thinly sliced 1 large red onion, thinly sliced 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 5 large tomatoes on the vine, peeled and diced 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped jalapeno pepper 1/2 teaspoon paprika 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon coarse (kosher) salt or to taste Freshly ground pepper to taste 1 tablespoon tomato paste 8 large eggs 1. Heat the oil in a large Dutch sauté pan with cover and put in the peppers and onions and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté 1 minute longer. Put in the tomatoes, jalapeno pepper and seasonings. Stir to mix and cook over low heat, with cover ajar, for 12-15 minutes. Add the tomato paste, cover and simmer for 23 minutes longer. Taste to adjust seasoning as necessary. Can be prepared up to several hours ahead to this point. 2. Before serving, break eggs, circling them around the pan and simmer over low heat, with cover ajar. Cook the eggs for 4-5 minutes for slightly runny yolks. Cook another minute or so for firm yolks. Serve hot directly from the pan. Above recipe Adapted from Janna Gur’s The New Taste of Israel.

The greeting card, flower-giving holiday of Mother’s Day is a gift for women to make them feel extra special. Organized in 1858 by Anna Reeve Jarvis, a social reformer, Mother’s Day was originally designed for mothers to clean up the environment, at a time when little attention was paid to such things. The Civil War interrupted and the landscape was really de-sanitized. To change the character of her Mother’s Work Days, Jarvis’ suggested a day be set aside for mothers to help in the war effort, by sewing flags, making uniforms and generally supporting the troops. Years later, Jarvis’ daughter, Anna, took up the cause to unofficially recognize a national Mother’s Memorial Day on May 10, 1908, in Grafton, West Virginia. Years later, in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed an official national Mother’s Day to honor those mothers whose sons died in the war. This Mother’s Day, almost a century later, we celebrate the day that means much more than breakfast in bed, an extravagant gift or a special dinner out. However commercial Mother’s Day has become, it’s still a day for honoring mothers for their devotion, cherished memories and for just being there. To start the day, a simple and savory prepared breakfast or brunch with an exotic egg-based tomato dish and a sensible carrot walnut cake will delight her. Whoever the designated cook is, set the table with her favorite flowers, and plan your doahead strategy to keep everything smoothly organized in keeping with the origins of Mothers Day.

Restaurant Notes, News and Special Offerings
B. Smith’s on the wharf in Sag Harbor opens Mother’s Day weekend With the weather getting nicer and the summer season approaching, restaurants across the East End have been busy getting themselves ready. Celebrated East End chef, James Carpenter, partnering with Swedish sous chef Bjorn Ericsson, has been appointed executive chef of The Living Room, the new restaurant at redesigned c/o The Maidstone in East Hampton. The restaurant will open to the public over Memorial Day Weekend. With a Slow Food kitchen – which aims to combat the idea of fast food – the new restaurant will focus on a commitment to food grown in the area, as well as the
Matto in East Hampton won the Five Star Diamond Award
environment. “It is always rewarding to share the bounty of the local farmers,” said Carpenter. “This spring, for example, I am looking forward to using all the beautiful locally grown ramps, asparagus, fava beans and sprouts.” Carpenter was a pioneer in the Slow Food movement when he worked at premiere Hamptons locations such as the American Hotel in Sag Harbor and Della Femina in East Hampton. Ericsson and Carpenter will work together to reinterpret Swedish classics. One example is the Maidstone cured smoked salmon tarte flambé with crème fraiche and capers – organic, sustainable-
farmed salmon that will be cured using traditional Scandinavian techniques and served on a light flaky tart. On the dessert side of the menu, The Living Room will offer a Catapano Farms goat cheese tart paired with homemade ligonberry sorbet. The restaurant’s Slow Food philosophy is also evident in its wine list, which offers East End wines as well as an array of ecofriendly wines from around the world. For more information, go to themaidstone.com or call 631-324-5006. (continued on next page)

House/ home The Meow, Meow, Meow of Picky Eaters
By Ellen Dioguardi Dogs eat. Cats dine. – Ann Taylor It was time to take our female Maine Coon cat, Roxie Hart, to the vet for her annual check up. She’s turning 10 in July and is very healthy. I wasn’t concerned about anything really – except maybe her weight. Roxie isn’t fat, at least not like her “brother” Robbie (our male Maine Coon), but she had been putting on a pound a year for the last two years and was supposed to be on a diet. We’d tried, cutting back on her wet food, limiting the dry food (neither of our cats is allowed to “free feed”). I was aware that we probably still fed them too much but the dry food was all healthy and natural, so we focused on limiting the wet food – Fancy Feast, which our vet called “Fritos for cats.” That was really intended more as a treat. However, they LOVE their Fancy Feast and it had gotten a bit out of hand. The day of the vet appointment arrived and I had to make the decision on how to transport Roxie. She hates to be in the carrying case at all and always ends up foaming at the mouth and crying. Even for the short ride from Noyac to Sag Harbor Village she’s just a mess. She isn’t as calm a cat as Robbie, who sits in my arms while I sing to him (music hath charms, yada yada …) so it’s problematic. I could wrap her in a towel, an act she finds terribly degrading, or perhaps put her in her old harness and see if she’d hold still
Should I? Dare I? with that on. The harness seemed the way to go. During the first five years of Roxie’s life I used to take her outside in a harness, she’d lead me around the lawn while she ate grass and rolled around in the dirt. One day a car backfired and scared her and she got all tangled up. Needless to say, the trips outside in the harness ended. However, as I pulled the five-year old harness out of the cat toy drawer she jumped up on the table and eagerly put her head into the collar part.
I tried to put the rest of the harness on but it didn’t fit anymore… oh, no. This did not bode well for the weigh-in at the vet. As we drove to Sag Harbor, Roxie squirming around in my arms while I tried to sing to her, I thought about how much bigger she really seemed. Like any weight gain I’ve experienced, this was gradual. She was “trim and fit” one year, then a year later she was still “in great shape,” then last year, suddenly, she was “too fat.” Isn’t it always that way? Weight and age creep up on you, even if you’re a cat. It’s just not fair. Of course, as we looked at the scale once inside the vet’s office, she was up one more pound. Looking at us like we were over indulgent parents, the vet’s assistant asked what we fed her. We confessed to the wet/dry diet and a few table scraps from time to time. Enter the vet, Dr. Barry Browning, a wonderful animal doctor in whom we have complete trust when it comes to our beloved pets. “They need more protein and less carbs,” he declared. Where had I heard that before, I thought, sucking in my gut? A very informative lecture on cats and their optimum eating habits ensued. As we left the office we were resigned to switching over to a more proteinfocused diet. Now, we just needed to convince the cats this is the way to go. Next time: Living with Cats on a Diet, or, Tips on How to Ignore the Plaintive Meows.

By Susan Galardi
It’s Not Nice to Mess with Mother’s Love ... Being a parent – specifically a mother (in honor of Mother’s Day) – has its privileges as well as its responsibilities. One of those privileges is the god-given right, above all other mortals, to tell your child what to do. That right rarely includes telling someone else’s child what to do, something I learned the hard way. When our son was a toddler, I’d think nothing of taking on the tough nannies and A-personality moms in the Bleeker Street playground if another child so much as gave Hudson a dirty look. If there was a scuffle between two little hulks over who gets the shovel, I wouldn’t hesitate to physically remove the other child if things got dicey. Once, at a children’s museum in New Jersey, I went ballistic on a 6-year old who pushed our then 3-year old son out of the way on an exhibit. The other mom then went ballistic on me. Needless to say I quickly learned what is and is not proper mom etiquette. Very simply, each mom or caretaker quickly intervenes and removes her own charge: You deal with your kid; I’ll deal with mine. Being a quick study, I never more reprimanded another’s child, unless the parent was no where to be found, or was a dead-beat sitting on the sidelines reading The Times, and the situation was becoming dangerous. As our son has gotten older and more able to control his impulses, I’ve noticed that most moms were becoming better behaved, too. So now that I’m past the learning curve, I find it shocking when other parents overstep the boundaries. A few weeks ago I was in the city for the day with our son. We went to a favorite spot: the Alice in Wonderland statue at Sailboat Lake. My partner grew up in the city, climbing on that enormous sculpture
just as every other child has done for generations. Spots on the life-size brass tableau have been shined to a golden finish by the hands of grasping children over the years: Alice’s index finger, the mouse’s ear and the rim of the Mad Hatter’s hat are among the many key climbing aids that a glisten in the sun and beg, “Grab me!” In any case, that morning my son was on the statue with a large group of kids, all trying to get to the top. That busload left, leaving just him and two other children climbing about. Some tourists began to amass with cameras. I sat on the bench and watched the scene. A man with a camera yelled angrily at a kid on the statue. I ignored it. Not my business. Then he yelled again, with more rage, “You! I said get down from there!” I looked up, and my son was starting to scramble down. Mrs. Ballistic, after years of absence, made an appearance. “Are you talking to my son?” I yelled from the bench. “He’s disrespecting the statue!” he thundered back. “Don’t tell him what to do,” I answered. By then Hudson was standing in front of me with a scared look on his face, his lip trembling a little. “Mumma?” he said, confused. “Ignore him honey,” I said, within the oaf’s earshot. “You’re not doing anything wrong. Go back and play.” “Is he taking my picture? Is he the police?” “He’s nobody,” I said loudly. “Just play, it’s okay.”
Then the oaf roared out. “Some people are just ignorant. I have more respect for the statue than your mother,” he said, starting to walk around it toward me. “Respect for the statue?” I said to him. “Obviously you aren’t from here. I’ve lived in this town for 25 years. Kids have been climbing that for generations. It’s a tradition.” “Yeah, and you’ll probably sue the city when he cracks his head open,” he said, walking by on his way elsewhere. “There’s a saying,” I said. “When in Rome …” (I think the reference was beyond his ken.) Hudson said, “Mumma, can I ask him something?” Of course I said no, but Mr. Personality sat down on the edge of the sculpture and said. “Yeah, come on kid, ask me whatever you want.” Hudson started toward him, I leaped over and guided him away by the shoulders, “Hudson, we are not interested in anything he has to say. We don’t talk to strangers.” The man’s wife (poor thing) said to him, nervously, “Come on, let’s go.” I felt badly for her. Hudson said, “I just wanted to ask him something.” “What?” I said. “I wanted to ask him who he was.” He was someone who never learned the rules of the playground, or the wrath of a mother scorned: an emotional response that is a god given right on Mother’s, and every, day.

What’s Up with Swine Flu on the East End By Tiffany Razzano With swine flu – officially known as the 2009 H191 virus – hysteria has grown across the globe as the numbers of those infected has risen to approximately 1,500 confirmed cases as of May 5. East End health officials are doing what they can to prepare for a possible outbreak in our area. Swine flu, which people can catch from pigs, features symptoms that range from mild to severe (depending on the person) similar to the regular flu: fever, cough, sore throat, headache, body aches, chills and fatigue. Some people also have vomiting or diarrhea. Those who have swine flu are contagious to others for seven days following the onset of symptoms. The epicenter of the disease is Mexico, where it originated and where there have been 802 confirmed cases of swine flu, with 26 deaths. The country shut down its economy – including businesses, universities, museums and libraries – for five days in order to keep the virus from spreading. It even cancelled all Cinco de Mayo celebrations. In the United States, as of May 4, there were 380 cases across 36 states, with one death. The majority of these cases in the U.S. revolved around St. Francis Preparatory School in Queens, where 45 students fell ill and the school shut down for a week Swine flu has been slowly spreading east in Suffolk County, with three cases confirmed in stu-
dents from Deer Park, forcing the local school district to shut down area schools for a week. One 50-year-old man from Holbrook who is an employee at St. Francis also contracted the illness. Critics say the media’s coverage of the spread of swine flu has been excessive and sensationalistic and that the public’s hysteria about the disease is possibly more dangerous than the virus itself. World health officials are finding that so far this strain of swine flu is no more severe than regular flu, which causes about 35,000 deaths per year. But it’s better to be safe than sorry. As Suffolk County officials deal with the handful of swine flu cases it’s seen so far, the East End is readying itself in preparation of the possibility of the virus spreading farther east. The County’s Department of Health Services has reached out to area hospitals, EMTs and police departments regarding how to handle potential swine flu cases. The County has also issued a list of preventive measures for the public to follow, including routinely disinfecting surfaces that are often touched by many people, including doorknobs, refrigerator door han-
dles, telephones and bathroom surfaces with a cleaner that is labeleled as a “registered disinfectant;” avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth as much as possible; covering your nose and mouth with tissues when sneezing or coughing, and then discarding them immediately; washing your hands with soap and water as often as possible; using an alcohol based hand sanitizer; avoiding contact with sick people; and staying home from work or school if you experience any flu-like symptoms, and contacting your doctor. “If you have a fever or feel something coming on, stay home and don’t risk spreading the infection,” said Southampton Town Supervisor Linda Kabot, in a press release. “Wash your hands frequently, carry some hand sanitizer, and try to steer clear of those with symptoms.” But remember, regular flu has been present on the East End for several months. So if you experience flu symptoms, don’t panic and be quick to assume it’s the swine flu.

The Car Nuts that Bloom in the Spring Spring has sprung, the flowers have riz, I wonder where the birdies is? Well, spring certainly is here, and you know where the birdies are. They’re all hanging out in the trees waiting for your pristine car to be parked within bombing range. First car rule of summer: Trees are archenemies of automobiles. Trees are bird bathrooms. The dreaded tree sap, which many trees seem to drop in the summer season, is almost impossible to get off car paint. There seems to be no remedy, because I’ve tried everything. Talk to a pro. Bird droppings, if left on automobile paint long enough, will actually burn through the paint like stomach acid, which it actually contains. Keeping a car clean can become a mania during the summer months, especially for dedicated car nuts. After all, many of these guys have kept their summertime beauties hidden under lock, key and car cover all winter and now’s the time to unveil them to the world. Does Angelina Jolie go out in public without makeup? Sometimes I wonder the same about Brad Pitt? Makeup to a car is a fresh wax job. If it don’t shine, it won’t fly. No serious car guy worth his salt would ever drive a dirty summertime car. Properly waxing a car is not an easy task, and many times the job is best left to professional car detailers. Dark colors, which happen to look the best when waxed, are also the most difficult to wax properly. There is also the problem of getting wax on plastic trim. It’s unsightly and difficult to remove. Vintage cars, thankfully, have no plastic trim but they have waxing problems of their own. Many vintage sports cars have my favorite type of vintage wheels, you know, the ones with wire spokes.
They are hard to maintain, but boy are they beautiful when in motion and at rest. However, wire wheels have always been the hardest part of any car to clean and keep clean. All those little spokes with tiny spaces between them to wash, wax and polish have always driven me crazy. Sometimes I think the best wire wheel cleaners are actually dental hygienists by trade. Getting between those spokes is akin to cleaning teeth, only not as easy. My sympathy to all you owners of vintage MGs, Healys, Ferraris and all old cars with wheels of wire. What a lot of vintage cars have that absolutely no new cars use anymore is a fair amount of chrome on their exteriors. As we all know, virtually every car built today has plastic front and rear bumpers, which I have to admit give many of them sweeping and sexy lines. However, every car of the past had chrome bumpers of all shapes and sizes. American cars, like the 1958 Oldsmobile and 1959 Cadillac, had the most massive chrome bumpers ever put on a car. In a tight parking situation they certainly overwhelmed any bumper protection offered by a ‘50s MG-A or Alfa Romeo. The point is that these chrome appendages today all polish up to a beautiful luster. In fact, the most rewarding part of polishing any vintage car is admiring how well the exterior chrome shines. For the record, during the ‘50s and ‘60s, and today for that matter, one should never park a lightly bumpered imported car behind American iron, especially in a tight parking situation. You are courting disaster. As for washing your car, and don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with using a commercial car
wash, but real car guys don’t drive Vespas and use a car wash. They love to wash their own cars. Certain rules apply. Some of these tips you’ve heard before, and some are insane. First, don’t wash the car in the sun, at least during midday. Use lots and lots of clean water. Clean your wheels last, so at least you are not using dirty soapy water on your car. After washing and rinsing it well, dry the car with the best and softest bath towels you can find. Really clean the glass, because nothing makes a car feel right than peering through crystal clear glass. Right after you dry the car, take it for a brisk run around the block. That will blow out a lot of water from the body seams, mirrors and wheel wells. You will probably have to re-dry those areas from water run off. One more reminder: Right after washing your car, check your brakes. In many cars they get soaked and are ineffective for the first few jabs of the brake pedal. I was recently at a world famous air show in Lakeland, Florida called Fun in the Sun, where hundreds of airplane enthusiasts gather to celebrate aviation and show off their airplanes. There were vintage airplanes everywhere. The two show planes that really caught my eye were both highly polished bare aluminum. One was a magnificent, fire breathing Warbird, a 1944 WW2 P-51 Mustang, and the other a demure little 1949 Cessna. I asked the Cessna owner how many hours it takes to polish all that aluminum. The answer, “About two full weeks.” It has to be done yearly. Think about that the next time you sit down to work on your wire wheels.
and giftware. In the mix you will find a full selection of melamine dinnerware, George Nelson style steel/wood bench, pair of 1940s European steel/wood chairs, original artwork in resin by well-known artist Dana Scinto and more.

Jam Sessions at Bay Burger Liven Up the Spring By Amelia Persans Bay Burger was a Mecca of sorts last Thursday evening, a brightly lit building with a packed parking lot and musical strains heard from outside, standing apart from the surrounding dark woods. Emerging from the long winter, those who attended Bay Burger’s Thursday night jam session were clearly ready to start shaking off the dust. My friends and I entered Bay Burger to a live, laid back jazz jam and exited shortly after a fast paced rap with full band backup. Yes, the jams feature a wide range of musical genres. Throughout the course of one hour and a half, we heard blues, ragtime, rap, and many types of jazz. Speaking of the tremendous variety, Claes Brondal, the drummer responsible for the evening, said that this spring’s series had just begun, and that the intention, for the moment, was to draw musicians “out of the woodwork.” The idea is to have different people from different backgrounds play together in a lot of different ways, have fun and feel each other out as musicians. Once the event is more established and more musicians have ventured out, Brondal may propose weekly themes. The evening lacked some of the formalities of a traditional mic, where a sign-up clipboard can sometimes be difficult to track down. Open invitations to come up and play were made between songs by the musicians. The crowd was casually attentive – polite and encouraging. But the pressure for the musicians to perform perfectly wasn’t
Art Commentary by Marion Wolberg Weiss
“A Plane Banana” Anne Sager While this critic looks forward to Guild Hall’s Annual Members Exhibit, along with everyone else, there are aspects that are disconcerting. For example, how does one write about a group show with 350 participants? Of course, the obvious answer might be to merely critique the award winners. But that’s not fair to the other deserving artists. Another answer might be to only write about a particular medium, like sculpture or photography. But that might not be fair either. Or maybe just concentrate on particular favorites of the critic. Let’s face it: Whatever approach this critic takes, it won’t be fair to a vast majority of the artists. Thus, an apology is due to one and all. What remains are the qualities that determined this critique’s content. The answer is both simple
Sag Harbor’s Bay Burger hosts a jam session for local musicians every Thursday night. on and the guilt of disrupting a live performance by the audience was off. In this early stage of the jam series, there was only one bassist who played and little turnover on the other instruments. My guitarist boyfriend’s frequent obligation to fudge his way on the bass in local rehearsals had previously alerted me to the veritable bassist drought on the East End, but there’s got to be more than two guitarists. All the players were very good which might seem intimidating to an amateur or someone who’s not used to playing out, but this group is by no means exclusive. Their appeals for any musicians in the audience to join in seemed in earnest. The full crowd at this event speaks to the hunger East Enders feel for a musical counterpart to the
area’s vibrant visual art scene. Audience members ranged from babes in arms, to kids and young adults, to the more experienced community members. The venue was great for this kind of gathering: informal, friendly and equipped with inexpensive food and beer. There was plenty of space for everyone to eat and/or enjoy the performances. This is a weekly event well worth checking out as an audience member or a performer. If you’re an emerging artist this is a great way to ease into performing live and playing with others. The jams could only benefit from new voices from all different backgrounds, skill levels, and interests. Thursday night jam sessions: 7 to 9 p.m, Bay Burger, 1742 Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Turnpike, Sag Harbor. 631-899-3915.
Members Exhibition at Guild Hall and complicated: It is work that is a little off-balance in a formal and/or a thematic way. Simply put, it’s art that’s a little different, conveying an idiosyncratic/personal view of the world. David Gamble’s photographic portrait of a young girl comes to mind. It grabs our attention because we want to know more, yet its ambiguous quality is part of that same attraction. Being familiar with Gamble’s photographic oeuvre will help us interpret the subject’s multi-dimensional demeanor. Joan Semmel’s portrait is similarly mysterious, even though it’s her own face. Her full-body self-portraits are striking enough. This piece makes us want to see the rest of her, too. We’re also led to imagine what she’s thinking about and where she’s located in both time and space. Personal worldviews continue with Anne Sager’s photograph, “A Plane Banana,” a work recalling her abstract airplane images, this one evoking fun and energy. Kryn Olson’s painting, “Deep Roots,” not only represents her interest in science, but her commitment to another kind of “roots,” her family. Toni Ross’ stoneware piece, “Torso: Beach Stone Series No. 1,” is both an example of good craftsmanship and life that is not quite perfect. Nicole Bigar’s oil, “Bhuton the Little Monk,” is a throwback to childhood with its comforting bedroom setting. Conversely, there are worldviews that are political, sociological and spiritual in nature, yet still personal. Consider Christa Maiwald’s “Latin Song Birds,” a hand embroidery piece imbued with satire (dictators as birds.) Sheila Isham’s watercolor, “Mythic Storm XLVI,” reinforces the artist’s life-long interest in Eastern religion. Like Gamble’s and Semmel’s portraits, the work is ambiguous yet invoking awe and wonder. Michael Cardacino’s perspective on society and pop culture, “Obsession,” shows up in his Barbie Doll montage, where content equals form, the repe-
Joan Semmel, “Self-Portrait #12” tition of images signifying America’s conformity in taste and values. Although we have focused on art that is more about themes close to the artists’ hearts, there is also work which is special in a formal way, where compositional elements are noteworthy. Consider, for example, Nico Yektai’s maple pedestal table, Dan Weldon’s mixed media, “Implied Connection,” Margery Harnick’s photograph, “Calla Lily,” and Matt Harnick’s photograph, “Heart of an Icicle.” There’s grace and lyricism in all these pieces, which are commendable. The Members Exhibition is on view at Guild Hall until May 30. The exhibit was organized by Michelle Klein; the installation was supervised by Christina Strassfield.

CHEEP CHEEP Dear David Rattiner, Thanks for the review on Twitter. I had wondered about that! Richard Brewster Via e-mail Twitter? – DR SUBWAY RIDE Dear Dan, Nice try Dan, you almost got me out to Amagansett early this morning. Dennis Phelps Via e-mail SWAN QUESTIONS Dear Dan, I loved your paper this week, especially regarding the cob, the male swan. Should I pass up my usual Memorial Day weekend in the Hamptons if I must worry that the cob might wish to peck at my car’s art deco? I have a lot of body molding strips that form designs on my car. Took a lot of work! Would the cob have an instinct that I love swans? Toby Van Buren Via e-mail He would. He told me to tell you to come on out. – DR A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO PIERSON Dear Dan, I am a 25 year resident of Sag Harbor and I would like to ask your paper to do a heart warming story about Pierson High School. It has been my privilege to be the mother of two beautiful sons Michael 23, and Anthony, 18, currently a student at Pierson. Anthony has a learning disability. He has ADHD, so his reading comprehension at times causes him frustration, leading him to have problems with his attitude and behavior in school. At times it was difficult for me to have to defend
the school to other parents, taxpayers and students. This school and its team of caring, loving, teachers, directors, counselors and staff have guided and granted my son Anthony the gift of teaching and learning. He has put the staff and myself to the test this winter. He was asked to leave the school because they felt that he could not be mainstreamed and his actions were causing disturbances. And they were right! But as an involved mother with a team of involved teachers, together we believed that it was in my son’s best interest and survival, to stay where he was, at Pierson. We all knew, and agreed, that if we placed him in a different school for the sake of not wanting to deal with his problem, we would lose him. Together as a team, we challenged the process and the one person who was causing this issue, Anthony. It took a lot of time, patience and love. As his mom, I felt I would conquer this alone. I had no choice, he is my son. There were times when I thought I would just throw in the towel and let him take his GED and just figure it out at a later date. But the one person who told me that it was unacceptable, was (believe it or not), my son Anthony. He truly wanted to graduate from Pierson High School, and wants to be successful
and an honorable citizen. How does a mom fold with those words and feelings that were placed in front of her? Armed with our feelings and beliefs, we all (as a team) went to the boards to ask for a last chance. They were reluctant. They thought about the side effects and decided that the only side effect was Anthony’s success. They agreed and kept him in place. I can tell you without question, if it were not for the team at Pierson High School, and his doctor, Harriet Hellman, Anthony would be a failure. Bottom line, every once in awhile you have take a risk. You have to challenge the system, ask for help and someone, somewhere, might hear your plea and understand the importance of breaking the cycle. We broke the cycle. We all won! Anthony, along with a wonderful team of caring, unsung heroes behind him, has raised his average in school and has no discipline issue to date. He is held accountable for his actions and his work. He is taking his tests for college, and is now a happy young man. I can tell you, without this strong foundation behind us, he would have slipped through the cracks. He said to his friend last night as they were talking about senior year, “I could not have done it without my family, friends and all the teachers who put their reputations on the line for me. They believed in me when I couldn’t.” So for all those who think that their school system is a vortex of wasted dollars or the school is just “a joke,” it is not. It is real, alive, loving and caring. It takes a village and our town working together as a team to make changes. A heart rendering thank you to the Pierson staff. You all know who you are, Harriet Hellman, NP and Anthony Borgese for standing up and taking responsibility for the future. Michele Joliet Tennariello Sag Harbor Via e-mail I second the motion. – DR
Police Blotter Swine Flu So far, health officials in Suffolk County are saying that the swine flu is not considered a threat and the East End is considered safe. We can all breathe a little bit easier, or then again, maybe we shouldn’t breathe. Bacon, hmmm. Subwoofer A man in Westhampton reported to police that somebody stole the subwoofer out of his SUV. A dog in Westhampton woofed at a man who was walking close to his property, the man backed off and the dog then subwoofed, then brought it down to a gentle growl. Yes Yes Bub A man in East Hampton didn’t immediately pull over after police put their sirens on after he made an illegal U-turn. The man drove his truck in excess of 60 mph before finally pulling over. When he did pull over, police found the man to be carrying undersized clams which he caught earlier, in the bed of his truck.
Three Arrested At a nightclub in Hampton Bays, a man was arrested when he attempted to climb in through the window of the nightclub on the top floor after he was denied entrance into the club. Now there is a dude who really needs to take into consideration what his priorities are in life. Southampton A man in Southampton was pulled over by police and charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the second degree. He was also aggravated emotionally after receiving a ticket. Fancy Graffiti Even the thugs in East Hampton have an eye for class and color design. It was reported to police that gold graffiti was painted outside of a public restroom in Amagansett. A full investigation is underway.
One Expensive Bonfire A woman in Quogue reported to police that somebody stole over $3,000 worth of patio furniture from the deck at her home. The woman then looked into the theft herself, and realized that the thieves actually used the patio furniture as well as boards of her deck and benches from a nearby ocean club to fuel a large bonfire. Police are putting in a full investigation. Sag Harbor A man in Sag Harbor was seen walking in the middle of the bay up to his neck without any clothes on early in the morning. A woman was going to report the incident, not because the man was naked, but because she was concerned that the man was going to freeze to death from the cold water. When the man got out of the water and toweled off, he explained to the woman that he has been taking dips in the bay every morning for the last 30 years and he’s pretty sure that’s what’s keeping him so healthy. - David Lion Rattiner
