National Beach Safety Week Chief Ed Reid, and First Assistant Chief Michael Forst, and Second Assistant TJ Calabrese, along with all members of East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue, announced that National Beach Safety Week begins Sunday, June 5, and ends the following Sunday, June 12. Our waters can be a wonderful recreational resource, but they can also be treacherous. Lifeguards are provided in an effort to reduce the number of accidents at our local beaches, but they cannot do the job alone. An informed public is essential to maintaining adequate levels of beach and water safety. The objective of National Beach Safety Week is to make citizens aware of the need to be safe while in and near the water with special emphasis on the hazards associated with rip currents. This coming week, visitors to the shore are reminded of key components of safe swimming and enjoyment of shoreline activities. • First off, learn how to swim. Our local YMCA is a great place for lessons as is the Junior Lifeguard Program. • Always swim near a lifeguard and with a buddy. • Check with the lifeguards about daily conditions. Obey posted signs and flags – and know your location for 911 calls. • Learn rip current safety, and enter water feet first. Don’t dive into waves; you don’t know how shallow the water under the crest is. Wear a life jacket when appropriate or mandated.

• Use sunscreen and drink water, and if you take Fido with you, make sure there’s fresh water for him, too. (Check with individual towns for “dogs on the beach” rules.) • Keep the beach and water clean – What you pack in, pack out! The United States Lifesaving Association (USLA), a national non-profit organization, and your local chapter, Hampton Lifeguard Association (HLA), are dedicated to improving beach safety in America. Membership includes professional beach lifeguards in this area joining lifeguards from across the country.

ORANGE BLOSSOMS AND PUPPY DOG FARTS What is it with me and dogs that are flatulent? Out of nowhere my wonderful, sweet, cuddly little pooch Shlomo has turned into a farting machine. Shlomo is the sweetest dog and the love of my life. When I sit down to watch television he jumps onto my lap and we watch together until one or both of us falls asleep. Sometimes it’s 1 AM and Jimmy Fallon is over and I wake up and say, “Wake up, Shlomo, it’s bedtime,” and since dogs can’t tell time, he jumps down from my lap, looks up and greets me, tail wagging, as though I had just walked into the room. Then when I climb into bed, Shlomo falls asleep on the floor on my side of the bed. Lately I have been awakened from a sound sleep by a strong smell that threatens to peel the paint off my bedroom walls. Shlomo has flatulence, and it’s not noisy. It’s a silent killer and, out of nowhere, one is overwhelmed by this incredible odor. If any of you reading this has a

cure for doggie flatulence, please send me an email. Hurry, it’s getting pretty bad. My biggest fear is that Shlomo’s condition will become as bad as my old dog’s, the late but unlamented Oreo. While Shlomo loves people, Oreo was a real bitch and she hated people. Oreo’s flatulence caused many a hilarious, embarrassing moment. My favorite one took place on a Sunday afternoon many, many years ago when I decided to take Oreo for a walk on Madison Avenue. I ran into a woman I know ever so slightly, who is something of a snob. She is very rich, very waspy, and very proper. The woman took one look at Oreo and said, “What a cute little dog.” She then knelt to pet her and that’s when Oreo let loose. The smell hit the woman first and I saw a look of pain on her face. By the time it rose up to me I looked down in horror at the woman. Did she think it was me? And of course, the woman was thinking I thought it was her. It’s that silent stuff that’s so hard

to trace and so deadly. I started looking at my shoe. “Did I step on something?” I asked too loudly. “Maybe it was me,” she said, looking at her heel. Oreo just stared at the two of us. Can dogs smile? I thought she had a smile on her muzzle. Then I said, “It could be the cheese. I’ve been feeding her sliced Velveeta cheese, as a treat.” “Oh,” said the woman nervously, “I have a problem when I eat cheese, too.” Now, this is a very attractive woman and this was more than I wanted to know about her faulty digestive system. Oreo let loose again. The woman looked like she was going to throw up. “I think I had better go now,” I said. The woman, holding her breath, said, “I’m late.” “So am I,” I said. Then, after an awkward second, which seemed like an hour, we went our separate ways. As I turned around I started to giggle. I haven’t seen her since. My all-time favorite doggie flatulence story happened when I first met my wife, the beautiful Judy Licht. When Judy and I first started dating, she showed up one day with a gorgeous little puppy called Panda from the North Shore Animal Shelter. We were happy with Panda until one fateful week a short time later, when we decided to take Judy’s mom and my parents on a get-acquainted weekend at a house we were renting in South Salem, New York.

IN THE NEWS

Now, picture the scene. It was a cold winter night, so all the car windows were shut tight. We were heading north on the Henry Hudson Parkway. Everyone in the car was really nervous. Judy was chattering nervously from the passenger side of the front seat. In the back, my parents and Judy’s mom were eyeing each other and saying very little. Judy’s mother had brought an Orange Blossom plant and everyone commented on how nice it made the car smell. At our parents’ feet the little puppy Panda was blissfully sleeping. We had just passed the George Washington Bridge when I got the first whiff. It overpowered the sweet smell of Orange Blossoms. Apparently everyone had smelled what I had smelled and now everyone was talking at the same time. Sort of saying, “It’s not me.” “We must be passing through some sort of a gas leak,” said Judy weakly. No one bothered to agree with her. The smell stayed with us into Westchester. The car smelled terrible. My dad opened his window, deciding he would rather be cold than sick. It was quite a few embarrassing miles before we realized that Panda suffered from flatulence. The fact that it was the puppy who was the windbreaker turned the situation into an icebreaker. Ever yone laughed and admitted they were terrified that they were suspect. As we reached our home Judy turned to me and said, “If I ever write a book about our life together, the title will be Orange Blossoms and Puppy Dog Farts.” If you have that doggy flatulence cure, please hurry. If you wish to comment on “Jerry’s Ink” please send your message to jerry@ dfjp.com.

Cross The Velvet Rope And See By Ann Lombardo

Independent / Anthony Lombardo

Tour the Masonic Lodge, located in this historic Sag Harbor Whaling Museum on Main Street, this Saturday.

LIFE INSURANCE Competitive Rates Term 10-20-30 year Universal Life Whole Life

Peek inside a masonic temple? It’s rare. So rare that the Masons in Sag Harbor can’t recall if or when it’s ever happened here. But, on Saturday, Master Patrick McErlean, who grew up in Sag Harbor, welcomes the public to come explore the inner sanctum of the Masonic Lodge, for free. As the current Master of Wamponamon Masonic Lodge No. 437, he wants the community to be able to do what he could never do. Patrick recalls, “As a kid I could never cross the velvet rope, go upstairs and see what was up there.” (Stair/chair lift available) Most East End residents are well aware of that tall imposing white classical-columned building on Main Street in Sag Harbor. Before it was the Whaling Museum, at 200 Main Street, it was the Masonic Temple, or Lodge. The second floor remains the Wamponamon Masonic Lodge No. 437 today, chartered and open since 1858. Inside and up the tall winding staircase, the private inner ritual rooms’ historic walls boast massive colorful murals painted by Sag

Harbor artist John Capello. They feature scener y and masonic symbolism in brilliant colors and dramatic lighting. Also on display are ‘aprons’ and other objects used in Masonic ritual, from the 1800’s with hand painting, textile artistry and hand wrought trims. There are historic photographs and original documents, books, and vintage ceremonial items on display. There’s an antique historical tiara in this collection, too. In the 1920’s Sag Harbor’s lodge counted at least 120 members. Back then, there were fewer fraternal organizations to compete with, and no HBO mini-series to rush home for. So Masons was ‘it.’ “Brothers” supported each other, too, in times of distress, and collaborating outside the life of the lodge. Around the turn of the 20th century, a majority of men here and across New York State belonged to the Masons in regional lodges. Men who join Masons come from all ethnicities, religions, ages and all walks of life -- present and past. For example, the early records from 1858 in Sag Harbor list members as “ . . . Seaman, Merchant, Druggist . . . ” Sag Harbor members today are also local working and business men. At meetings, once inside the lodge, they disallow discussion of CONTINUED ON PAGE 26.

Dear South Fork Resident: Every spring and summer, particularly on the East End, the arrival of warmer temperatures leads to a tremendous increase in water use as residents beautify their lawns and gardens with regular watering. This greater water use, exacerbated by automatic sprinkler systems timed to activate daily during early morning hours, reduces water pressure and thus impacts the pressure available for your morning shower as well as for fire protection. It also requires costly investments in our infrastructure to meet the demand; just since 2010, we have committed approximately $20 million on the East End for this purpose. That cost, ultimately, is borne by our customers in their water rates. I encourage you to join our voluntary campaign to address this situation. Try switching to an odd/even watering schedule, which is actually better for your lawn than daily watering as it promotes deeper root growth. Or join our East End Water Wise Club and receive an account credit on your water bill of up to $50 per account for purchasing low-flow showerheads, faucets and/or a rain sensor for your watering system. To sign up, please go to HYPERLINK "mailto:eastendwaterwiseclub@scwa.com" eastendwaterwiseclub@scwa.com or call us at (631) 292-6100. You’ll not only be helping us to save you money, but you’ll also be doing your part to preserve the most vital natural resource we have on Long Island—the sole source aquifer that provides all of our drinking water.

We’re Jammin . . .

By Kitty Merrill

And I hope you like jammin, too. Out went the smoothies as soon as Jessica Mackin-Cipro arrived at our office with my long-awaited jar of Hampton Jam Company jam. Out came the emergency rice cracker stash so I could try the apple and tart cherry flavor. I was supposed to just try it, but, as Bob Marley sang, “True love that now exist is the love I can’t resist.” So, till the crackers were gone, “Jam by my side.” Jessica, Indy’s associate publisher, and her husband Chef Joe Cipro, Indy’s Recipe of the Week columnist, started making jam as a hobby. The feedback was so positive, they began experimenting with recipes to create original concepts for the jam. And Hampton Jam Company was born. The couple debuted the first sampling of the jam at the “Love Bites” chef tasting event last January, a benefit for Katy’s Courage and The Scarlett Fund, at The Muses in Southampton. Showcasing the versatility of the product, the jams were served alongside foie gras torchon, assorted cheeses, and an

angel food cake. They taste great on rice crackers, too. This author is already jonesing for a PB& J featuring the apple & tart cherry jam with crunchy almond butter on toasted Ezekial bread. Or a hot flax waffle with a blueberry schmear. It’s all about making healthy choices and Hamptons Jam Company is all about the best ingredients. Jess and Joe use only organic ingredients, sourced from organic purveyors. The spreads include only the basics: organic fruit, organic spices, organic sugar, and organic lemon. Nothing is artificial or genetically modified. But don’t paint the Cipros as stodgy health food nuts. They know how to pump up the jam. Last weekend they participated in Long Island Spirits, Long Island’s first craft distillery, in Baiting Hollow. The distillery concocted Hampton Jam Cocktails in the tasting room including a “Rye Orchard Pie,” mixing Rough Rider Rye with Apple & Tart Cherry Jam and apple cider and a “Gin Berry Fizz” blending Pine Barrons Gin with Blueberry Jam,

Have It Made In Your Custom-Crafted Shade.

Raspberry Sorbetta, and club soda. The first set of Hampton Jam flavors includes Blueberry, Apple & Tart Cherry, and Strawberry Lemonade. “We want to put a new twist on classic jam flavors,” said Joe. Hampton Jam will be available at the Havens Farmers Market on Shelter Island and the Hampton Bays Farmers Market every Saturday through Labor Day.

The resolution of sale was rescinded in August of 2013 and the four-acre property was officially designated Carol Morrison Park (named after Carol Morrison a wellknown Montauk environmentalist and land preservation pioneer). Through the leadership of the Town’s Property Management Committee, community donations and volunteer support an extensive 18-month renovation and restoration of both the house and grounds have been completed. The park will be open each day from dawn until dusk and Fort Pond House will be open by appointment through the East Hampton Town Recreational Department. Further information on the property and its use including applications for use of Fort Pond House can be accessed online or by contacting the Recreation Department at 631324-2417.

Parking Amnesty Beginning today and running through July 31, parking violators will be allowed to pay delinquent parking violation fees with only an additional $5 administrative charge for violations issued from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2015. For example, if the original summons was for $100.00, violators will pay $105.00. This amnesty program waives any additional penalties. “There are also great costs to the town to collect past due parking violation penalties,” Supervisor Jay Schneiderman explained. “The amnesty program allows the town to collect those overdue fees with minimal court costs and administrative time.” An estimated 2300 outstanding parking tickets were issued during that three-year period. Parking tickets range in price from $280 for CONTINUED ON PAGE 22.

Good Car-ma

By Kitty Merrill

I loved my Echo. In 11 years, it ferried me through two hurricanes and innumerable blizzards. It braved the famed Oakdale merge and worse, summer traffic on Newtown Lane. Four years old and boasting 33,000 miles when I acquired her from Atlantic Toyota in Amityville, with nothing down and $200 a month payments, I loved that car. Roll up windows, windshield wipers and a kickass stereo that work, air conditioning that often worked, what more could one want? I loved my Echo, but it wasn’t that gooey kind of love that calls

for tender displays of affection, like cleaning it, or checking the oil. It’s survival of the fittest at Casa Merrill. So, when the time for our 11year marriage to end, there was trepidation and heartache. I’d never acquired a vehicle entirely on my own, and certainly I didn’t relish the prospect of driving some fancy schmancy ride I’d have to take for service, not to mention regular car washes. Who has time for that? I wasn’t entirely on my own in the hunt. Editor Rick Murphy, a car-buying savant, launched into an enthusiastic web search and offered a steady stream of advice

Thursday afternoons. Everyone had something to say about leasing and buying new or “previously owned.” Especially voluble were the dozen salespeople Murph’s web search unearthed. They called and emailed incessantly, just as insistent as spammers for LuAnn Bennett, who’s running for congress in upstate New York, where I can’t vote. Overwhelmed and reluctant to act, I finally took the Indy van to Riverhead on a car quest. A friend works at one of the big dealerships on 58. So I started there . . . and was crying in less than 20 minutes. Salesman Raj accosted me at the front door of the place. He didn’t seem terribly interested in selling me anything, since each question I asked was met with “That’s even more expensive,” or insistence on making a deal right away. He scowled when I said I wasn’t going to make a decision that day. A lease deal seemed too good to be true. The fine print called for a down payment of more than I paid for my first five cars. My very first car was 1969 turquoise Gran Torino and cost $500. It was “gently used,” in that the prior owner cut a beer can sized hole in the back dash so he could recycle, undoubtedly. Raj didn’t seem sympathetic to indecision. There were only four lease deal cars left. None of the used vehicles fit my budget, he said, answering “You can’t afford that” to each question. Walking through the lot, I stopped in front of a vehicle parked several lines back. “What’s this?” I asked. “A car,” he retorted, with a less than pleasant curbside manner. I drove off in the van, straight into an adjacent parking lot to snivel and envision a future of bike and bus riding, plus van borrowing. On a whim, I stopped at CONTINUED ON PAGE 24.

‘Gansett Girl Scouts There was no brownie troop at the school when Marit Molin moved to Amagansett with her daughter Maya. So, she started one.

The brownies collected 250 pairs of shoes to donate to The Retreat, the local women’s shelter. They cleaned Indian Wells Beach while learning about the environment and piping plovers from a member of the East Hampton Town Natural Resources Department. They repurposed the big cartons Girl Scout Cookies are shipped in and built scratching posts for the cats at Animal Rescue Fund headquarters in Wainscott. And they jumped on board the “Soap for Hope” bandwagon. After learning about the program from two local EHHS sophomores, troop members collected discarded soap that is then melted down to make new bars. The repurposed soap is donated to orphans in Southeast Asia, Cambodia, Nepal and Ecuador. That’s not all. The troop helped set up the local homeless shelter, celebrated “World Thinking Day,” and studied powerful women in history. Given their start in community service, stay tuned.

Calone, Throne-Holst Battle Intensifies By Rick Murphy

And down the stretch they come. Dave Calone, the chairman of the Suffolk County Planning Commission and former Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst are neck and neck as they vie for the Democratic Party nod to run for Congress. The primary is slated for June 28. Neither expected to be in the race two years ago. Calone had never run for public office before; Throne-Holst would have been a solid favorite to win reelection to

the supervisor’s seat. But when Republican/Conservative Lee Zeldin ousted six term Democratic incumbent Tim Bishop, it set the wheels in motion. “I saw what was going on in Washington,” Calone recalled. “From the very first day Zeldin started voting in his right wing way.” “So many people were saying we’ve got to get this seat back in the right hands,” Throne-Holst related. “I had a track record of reaching across the aisle. I’m the

only one who can make that claim.” Throne-Holst was in the minority party six of her eight years as Southampton Supervisor, “and I got the job done.” Both candidates claim the support of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Calone said he met with the DCCC and declared in April (2015). “I went through the screening process. They asked me to run one month before Anna.” Throne-Holst said she wasn’t sure if she wanted to enter the race

at first. “For me it was a hard decision. I enjoyed my time in town hall.” But the DCCC beckoned and after screening she was asked to go back down to Washington again. “I have a track record. I have the experience to get the job done.” Throne-Holst is critical of Calone’s involvement with LIPA; Calone sat on the utility’s board for three years. “LIPA has the highest utility rates in the country. He was part of the board of directors of a debt- laden utility and then he left CONTINUED ON B-3.

Dave Calone was born and raised in Brookhaven Town where his mother was a public school teacher and his father an engineer. He attended school at Mt. Sinai and Port

Jefferson, Princeton University, and Harvard Law School. After graduating from law school, Calone worked as a federal prosecutor at the U.S. Department of Justice and later as a Special Assistant Attorney General in New York State, working to negotiate what was at the time the largest health care fraud recovery for taxpayers in state history. Calone was appointed by County Executive Steve Levy to Chair the Suffolk County Planning Commission seven years ago, making environmental sustainability, housing diversity, and renewable energy priorities. He serves on the board of United Way of Long Island as well. Calone served on the Long Island Power Authority Board of Trustees as Chair of the Trustee’s Operations Committee from 2009 through 2012. The fact that so many employers are relocating out of Suffolk, and Lee Zeldin’s defeat of longtime Democratic Congressman Tim Bishop, prompted Calone to enter politics, he said. He is married and has three young children. Calone has been endorsed by the East Hampton Town Democratic Committee, Legislator Al Krupski, Leg. Bridget Fleming, East Hampton Town Supervisor Larry Cantwell, and Southampton Town Councilman John Bouvier, among others. R.M.

I filled out a partial term. There were no progressive thinkers on the board at the time. Because of my work, LIPA issued the largest renewable energy RFP ever. It will benefit tens of thousands of homes.” Calone is CEO of Jove Equity Partners, a firm that helps start and build technology companies (the resumes of both candidates are highlighted elsewhere in this section.) “As Planning Chair I led the fight for wastewater improvement. For the first time the county put up money to fund a wastewater infrastructure. We are now testing a dozen technologies. I’ll bring that kind of progressive thinking to Washington,” Calone vowed. Throne-Holst also touts her record on clean water initiatives. She was instrumental in bringing the New York State Clean Water and Technology Center to Stony Brook University. “His track record is woefully lacking. I’m the only one who can beat Lee Zeldin. He’s trying to make the claim he’s the environmental candidate by being a member of a committee of a commission.

The East Hampton Democratic Committee endorsed me. (East Hampton Town Supervisor] Larry Cantwell . . .” Throne-Holst said the local endorsements are indicative of a political game she refuses to play. “There is a side of politics I refuse to be a part of, and people who know me know that,” Throne-Holst said. “I never wanted to be inside the machinery. I carry out my work in the public sector and I serve all my constituents.” With Donald Trump’s campaign gaining steam, it is quite possible even if a Democrat wins the race in the First Congressional District he or she will be in the minority. “I’ve worked with all the parties,” Calone said. “As a federal prosecutor I worked on terrorism and corporate fraud and these are major issues in Washington. I’m a leader in renewable energy. I can get Democrats and Republicans together to work for the future.” Throne-Holst pointed out she straightened out Southampton’s budget woes her first term in office, “in the worst economic climate we’ve ever had” despite being the only non-Republican on the town board. The town earned an AAA bond rating from Moody’s during

her tenure. Though Calone hails from Brookhaven, Throne-Holst thinks she was an edge in name-recognition. “My office is in Medford. I’m here every day. He may live here but he doesn’t have name recognition.” Throne-Holst also pointed out she has won her last three elections by a 20 percent plurality. Calone hopes to bring his fight for clean water to Washington DC “Thirty years ago the federal government used to fund waste water infrastructures,” he pointed out. “We are not the only place that has this problem. I can form a coalition in the House.” Calone pointed out that some shoreline septic systems can be reroutes.

“Some of these treatment facilities are the size of a couple suitcases,” he said. Calone also pledged to fight for more public transportation money. “Right now the New York Metro Council distributes all the federal funds. They are spending $8 million on a second avenue subway. That money needs to be passed around.” Calone said the creation of Long Island Transportation Council would be a fairer way to distribute federal funds. Throne-Holst is ready for the spotlight as well. “These issues are passionate to me. We are at a crossroads. My kids asked me to run. My eldest son said, `Your whole life has led you to do this.’”

Live Music Ruckus By Kitty Merrill

East Hampton Town Police responded to 300 calls for service from last Friday through Sunday morning. That’s throughout the entire town and including every kind of call to police dispatch, from barking dog complaints to car accidents, and, according to Supervisor Larry Cantwell, “That’s quite normal.” There were no noise complaints or citations issued for overcrowding at night spots in Montauk over the holiday weekend, Cantwell reported. “Our visitors were all well behaved. It was busy, but calm.” Social media was busy, too, but not so calm over the weekend, with local musicians decrying a move that put a damper on gigs in the Lighthouse District for the holiday weekend. Spurred by rumors that the town was attempting to shut down all live music performances in Montauk, on Friday morning, Police Chief Michael Sarlo posted a message to Facebook. “It has come to light in recent proceedings at the State Liquor Authority over the past few weeks, that some establishments previously served with SLA violations, who have routinely hosted music, live or recorded, have not served notice to the SLA on their official permit applications that they host any music at all, but have just been operating as restaurants,” he wrote. That means the SLA requires places that host music to say so on their applications. The town also requires places that have live music to obtain annual permits. This spring the town and the SLA began a collaborative review of everybody’s permits to ensure they match up – if a place has a music permit from the town, it should also notify the SLA during its permit process that it hosts musical performances. Any establishment that hosts music and has not properly identified this with the SLA is being asked by the Town to amend their permit, Sarlo said, adding that town officials are offering to assist in any way possible to gain compliance. “This is simply an attempt to ensure that both State and Town permitting mirror each other, and an effort to ensure across the board compliance,” the chief continued. “While the timing of this may seem suspect, rest assured it came about as the information came to light.” This week, Cantwell explained that the move was prompted by an SLA hearing for the Surf Lodge. At

June 1, 2016

the hearing, officials were advised Surf Lodge didn’t list live music on its application for a liquor license. “The Surf Lodge contacted us, we met with them and they asked for help,” the supervisor reported. “We told them they had several violations we wanted corrected before we’d help them with the SLA application.” SLA applications are vetted to the town to see if there are any local violations that could hamper the issuance of a liquor license. Surf Lodge has noise violations from last summer that still haven’t been adjudicated, according to Cantwell. The Surf Lodge hearing triggered the look at all SLA applications and town music permits, Cantwell confirmed. The desire is to make sure town and state permits say the same thing. The desire is not to shut down all music in Montauk, said Chief. “There is absolutely no validity in the rumors that the Town is attempting to shut down live music in Montauk,” he wrote. “There has been no deliberate attempt to drop sweeping changes on the businesses just prior to the holiday weekend.” As a furor fomented on Facebook over the weekend, with some reporting canceled gigs and others predicting an end to Montauk’s economy one poster noted, “I played a gig last night w/o any issues... When I asked the owner what was up? He shrugged his shoulders and replied “We just made sure we did all the paperwork right in the first place” I have no doubt about the “political motivation” of those in charge. I’m sure they want to send a

message. but it also appears to be a matter of not having your ducks in a row. BTW, the only places in town,

Another Southampton School Administrator In Hot Water

By Rick Murphy

Forgive some Southampton residents if they are likening the situation in the school district to a soap opera – and a bad one at that. Just weeks after axing School Superintendent Scott Farina – and giving him a $300,000 goodbye kiss – the board announced on May 24 that Denise Merchant, the Director of Pupil Personnel Services, was being replaced on an interim basis by Dr. Harmon Cohen, a retired special education administrator. Once again the board hired the Garden City-based firm Jaspan Schlesinger LLP to provide attorney services to the district – the same firm hired to investigate Farina. The school board never revealed the results of the investigation or the nature of his discretions, if any – but Farina was released from a five-year contract in return for the buyout. The board hired Jaspan Schlesinger LLP of Garden City to look into the latest allegations against Farina. It is a multi-purpose firm that has represented school districts in the past. That hiring is controversial in its own right: the New York Law Journal identified Steven R. Schlesinger as managing partner of Jaspan Schlesinger LLP. Newsday alleged Schlesinger funneled foundation funds to organizations in which he had a personal stake or interest— including $1.25 million to the Jacob

D. Fuchsberg School of Law at Touro College, where he is on the board of directors — and smaller gifts to charities run by his friends, including former U.S. Senator Alfonse D’Amato and Long Island developer Gary Melius, the owner of Oheka Castle. Melius is recovering from a gunshot would to the head fired by an unknown assailant. On Tuesday a Nassau County Court Judge removed Schlesinger for “mismanagement” of foundation funds he was appointed to manage. At one point he, “took a $131,323 commission that [allegedly] belonged to the foundation.” The Bohemia-based Syntax Communication Group, a PR firm that represents the school district, did not return phone calls for comment. School Board President Heather McCallion would not comment on allegations raised against Merchant. Sources said a complaint against her was lodged by at least one other staff member.

Task: Arrest Drunk Drivers The East End DWI Task Force, comprised of officers from municipal police units throughout the East End, was out late Saturday night and early Sunday morning. Six arrests were logged at a Hampton Bays checkpoint, including two drivers who were hit with felony counts. Pablo Carchipulla, 31, of Flanders was one. Police said he was stopped at a Hampton Bays checkpoint and it was determined he had been drinking excessively. He was hit with a felony count of driving without a license because of an earlier DWI offense, which resulted in a suspended license, police said. He also allegedly bypassed an interlocking device meant to keep him from operating the vehicle. Geovany Plaza, 27, of Sag Harbor, was a passenger in a car stopped by police. After the driver was arrested, Plaza, according to officers on the scene, went back to the car and drove it away from the scene, driving across curbs and medians in the process. He drove down Flanders Road to the Sunrise Highway – allegedly without headlights – where he was pulled over. 
Police said Plaza, who gave a Sag Harbor address, was drunk as well and he was hit with a felony DWI, obstruction of government

RICK’S SPACE Home Sweet Home I stumbled upon “A Geek In The Wilderness” and an essay by Frank Swift entitled, “Why I hate Long Island With All My Heart And Soul.” “Having been a lifelong native here, I can say without any shadow of doubt that this fish-shaped extension of sewage material, located due east of Manhattan, is one of the most intolerable, despicable, grimy, disgusting, vile, evil, filthy, overpopulated mounds of matter to ever bedevil the history of man,” he wrote. One blogger seemed to sum it up nicely: “Long Island is materialist, rude and devoid of warmth and comfort.” Another said Long Islanders are, “cold -- you can move on the block and never get to know your neighbor.” Why live in a place you hate? Anyhow, this is how I rate places I’ve lived from worst to best. BROOKLYN: I hated Brooklyn. Sure, you’re thinking its because no one liked me and I had no friends, but that’s true of everywhere I’ve lived. I hated the smell of buses, and the fact that the stench of fuel is everywhere. I particularly hated subways, and I had to take one to

school five days a week for four years. I felt like one of the Mole People. On the platform the vending machines that sold gum for a penny were all broken, all the time. Has anyone of us, EVER, used a bathroom on the subway station? Rapists and slashers hung in each and every one. Here’s the funny thing – we lived a nice neighborhood. Imagine the rest of the borough. NEW ORLEANS: I spent two years there. The police, dressed in their baby blues, were rednecks who despised hippies and New Yawkers. That didn’t bode well for me. But the people were as nice as could be. Like in Manhattan, there are a lot of offbeat people kicking around – poets, musicians, crossdressers (who used any bathroom they wanted), and especially gamblers. I like gamblers. Yes, I started to say “Y’all” with alarming frequency. When I came back to Brooklyn I’d say stuff like,“ Y’all wanna play three on three” to the guys on the basketball courts. “What the hell is wrong with you?” one would inevitably reply. “Who are you, Robert Effin E. Lee?”

EAST HAMPTON: I like it here now, and I love the ocean. The best exercise in the world is to walk on the beach, and I go every single day. Of course, I have a brand new SUV and I don’t want to get sand in it so rather than walk nowadays I just drive down there and sit. It’s still good exercise as far as I’m concerned. It’s hard to find a bargain around here. Even the crap at yard sales is overpriced now. I live in a great neighborhood, and have for 22 years – and no, I don’t know any of my neighbors. SAG HARBOR: I loved living in Sag Harbor. We literally slept with the doors open, left the keys in the car, and let the dogs out the back door to go wherever they wanted. When I was a little kid I single-handedly introduced the village to shoplifting. One of the delis used to have the candy rack right by the front door. My contention was that gave me a license to steal. Soon every kid in town would just walk by and steal a candy bar. I did it until I was 31 and my teeth started going bad. I also introduced firecrackers to the village. My older sister had all these Sag Harbor “tough guy” friends who wanted firecrackers.

B-7

I brought a mat (80 packs) in Chinatown and sold the packs for 20 cents each. The guys all got caught and immediately squealed on me, which would get you a one way ticket to hell in Brooklyn (even the wimpiest of kids knew to keep their mouths shut when they get caught by the coppers). One of the local cops came over the house to get me but my grandfather recognized him – apparently the cop was a real wiseass when he was a teenager and Poppa caught him stealing tomatoes a few times. Poppa started cursing in Italian and threw the cop off the property so I beat the illegal fireworks rap. And Poppa never told my mom, either. That’s when I realized home is where the family is – and a place you can get free candy.

Does ACAC Like BBCs?

Drives Us Crazy Independent / Kitty Merrill

Hey, a girl needs her sunscreen and lip gloss from Rite Aid. It was an emergency that warranted parking in the fire zone at Bridgehampton Commons on Sunday morning. No room for cars that are lawfully driving through the lot to pass without threat of head on collision. A case of SPF meaning Selfish Person Found.

Business Continued from page 13. month of June. Some pet parents may worry that their pet is too young for this procedure, but spaying and neutering is safe and easy for kittens and puppies as young as

eight to 10 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. Located in Calverton, Kent Animal Shelter will provide “Precious, Not Parents” sterilizations for $20 in June only while appointments last. Please visit www.KentAnimalShelter. com or call 631-727-7797 for more information or to schedule an appointment.

In a hamlet, nicknamed “I’m Against It,” where some folks fought a proposed 7-Eleven and oppose an affordable housing project, will residents will embrace a haven for hipsters . . . even if the proprietors can’t spell? Doubtful. A sign predicting the resurrection of Cyril’s Fish House as Cyril’s West popped up on the Principi property in Amagansett east over the weekend. Cyril’s reportedly closed for good after the restauranteur refused to comply with townrequired changes to the Napeague Stretch operation. The Principi site has a storied history -- a plan to house a 7-Eleven

Independent / Kitty Merrill

prompted town lawmakers to craft chain store legislation that could render the convenience store application impossible without a zone change and the jumping through of multiple hoops. The last business at the site was a restaurant, meaning a relocation of the controversial restaurant/popular watering hole might be feasible and comport with current zoning. But, according to East Hampton Town Supervisor Larry Cantwell, the 7-Eleven application is still wending its way through the planning process. He wasn’t sure whether the sign was a prank or real. “Something’s a little goofy there.”

Sea Lion Selfies Next time you go to the Long Island Aquarium, don’t miss the chance to take a selfie with a sea lion. It’s a unique encounter you’ll never forget – a kiss (and keepsake photo) from Java, one of the aquarium’s lovable sea lions. Now, due to the nature of this activity, and the behavior/ personalities of individual sea lions, kisses are not guaranteed.

June 1, 2016

Dead Man’s Cove Uncovered Tr a g e d i e s a t s e a a n d t h e navigational dangers of the area surrounding Horton Point have been documented since the early 1800’s. The area earned the moniker “Dead Man’s Cove,” and is the subject of a new exhibit hosted by the Southold Historical Society at the Reichert Family Center on the Main Road in Southold opening Saturday. The exhibition showcases the

stories of 10 vessels that encountered trouble on the Long Island Sound. The exhibition answers: Who was in command? Who made up the crew? What was it like to be a passenger on one of these fateful voyages? In 1789, President George Washington signed the “Act for the Establishment and Support of Lighthouses, Beacons, Buoys and Public Piers,” which established federal funding for lighthouses

to be built and maintained. On October 15, 1857, the Horton Point Lighthouse was first illuminated. This exhibition tells the story of the Horton Point Lighthouse. Learn about the construction, illumination, and the story of key lighthouse keepers who devoted their lives to navigational safety on Long Island Sound. The exhibit was inspired by the curiosity of visitors to the Horton Point Lighthouse. “Adults and kids are always asking about the history of the Lighthouse, and most of them want to know about the wrecks that occurred in those dangerous waters,” said Jill Wilson, Lighthouse Committee Chair. The exhibition includes a “Wreck Investigation Kit” for visiting families. The exhibition will be open Saturdays during the month of June at the Reichert Family Center

Data put together by economists at finder.com, a personal finance comparison and education site, reveal there is a surplus of 33.6 million spare bedrooms in America, which they say equates to about $174.9 billion in untapped real estate. In New York specifically, there are 16,055 spare bedrooms, equating to roughly $83,486,000 – that’s assuming the rooms could be rented out for $100 a week, a bargain basement price on the East End. According to the U. S. Census, there are 357,032,421 bedrooms in America, and 323,391,100 people, leaving a surplus of 33,641,321 rooms.

When I finished filling out a ream of papers, he said, “Kitty, smile. This is a happy thing.” He agreed buying a car can be stressful, but, “We try to make it a good experience.” Owner Ted Lucki sets the tone, Jay informed. “We call him Teddy Bear.” His family has been in the car business since 1958, when their dealership was neighbor to nothing but farm fields on Route 58. Ted has three dealerships on 58 now, Riverhead Toyota, Riverhead Ford, and GMC Buick. They’re the biggest dealerships on the East End. Riverhead Toyota, a three time Presidential Award recipient, sells more vehicles than any other shop on the strip. Jay’s been at Riverhead Toyota since 2003. “We didn’t have grey hair then,” he joked to Lucki as we got set to pose for a photo. Lucki’s dog, Earl, joined in the group shot. Back at the office, Murphy dubbed the car “Trixie,” creating another historic moment -- the first time I didn’t think one of his ideas was stupid. Trixie suits her. She’s fancy.

And they will all call each other “brother.” Masonry has a rich history, far more than I can cover here. If you ask family members, there’s a good chance someone in your family or circle of friends was a Mason. They describe themselves this way: “Masons are men of good character who strive to improve themselves and make the world a better place.

Several phrases in our everyday speech are traced back to freemasonry. For example, asking a lot of questions -“giving someone the third degree.” And, being “fair and square”, or “on the level.” For decades, Sag Harbor Masons have provided community service. They give annual scholarship checks as a contribution to two deserving Pierson High School graduates. Their coat drive has delivered coats in winter to the Sag Harbor Food Bank.

New York State’s masonic headquarters is called Grand Lodge, located in NYC, and open for free tours. Master McErlean reports, according to masonic principles, “Masonic duties should never cut into your job, occupation or family time. That all comes first.” The Masons of Wamponamon Lodge No. 437, hope the public will stop by on Saturday from 11 AM to 4 PM. Master Patrick McErlean’s special wish is that folks will, “Cross the velvet rope, enjoy the tour, and discover a deeper and richer sense of the history of Sag Harbor.” Women cannot become Masons, but they can join the Order of the Eastern Star, a masonic-style fraternal group open to both men and women. On Saturday, Sag Harbor will display an antique tiara from this group. Yes, tiara. Any group where the men wear the aprons and the women wear the tiaras – well, that’s worth a visit! The open house is a familyfriendly event. Children ages five and up are welcome with a parent or caregiver. Refreshments and souvenir postcards will be available for attendees.

Hampton Bays Falls; Pierson Grabs C Title By Rick Murphy

Hampton Bays made a nice run through the Suffolk County Class A tournament before finally falling to Islip 3-2 last Wednesday. The season came to an end for the Hampton Bays softball team on Wednesday afternoon after a 3-2 loss at Islip in a semifinal game. Mount Sinai clinched the title the next day by beating Islip. Hampton Bays actually took a 2-0 lead against winning pitcher Maddie Feddersen on a hit by Hannah Reed and another by Mackenzie Tyler, but the winners broke through against losing pitcher Marley Tyler the next inning. Hampton Bays, the fourth seed,

finished with 8-4 League VI record, 17-8 overall. The locals beat Miller Place on May 17, 4-3. Tyler retired the final two batters with the tying and go-ahead run on base, including snagging a line drive up the middle for the final out, to lead fourth seeded Hampton Bays over the fifth seed in first round action. Hannah Reed went 2-for-2 with a run, a walk and an RBI. Katie Picataggio went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI. The Lady Baywomen previously lost to Mount Sinai 9-3 for their first loss in the double-elimination series. That set up a do or die game

against Westhampton Saturday and Hampton Bays prevailed, 5-4. On the verge of elimination, Shelby Hughes drilled a single, driving in Reed with the winning run in the final inning. Tyler eventually scored on an error to tie the score. Hampton Bays was to play Monday against either Miller Place or Sayville. You never count Pierson out. No matter what the sport, no matter what the trials and tribulations the teams face during the regular season, the Whalers always seem to find a way come playoff time. Saturday the Lady Whalers traveled up to Port Jefferson and returned home with the Suffolk County Class C championship despite the fact the team has a 7-10 record this season. Cali Cafiero went 2-for-2 with

three RBIs and Annabelle Schroeder came up big when it counted to secure a berth in the Long Island Class C championship game tomorrow at St. Joseph’s College. Pierson won the opener of the double elimination tournament three days earlier at home, 11-8, also against Port Jefferson. Schroeder earned the win in that game as well. The Southampton Lady Mariners made a nice run before bowing out of the Class B playoffs. The locals lost to Babylon last Wednesday putting them on the brink of elimination but rallied to beat Mercy 6-5 on Thursday behind Samantha Wesnofske, who tossed a complete game and recorded 11 Ks. She also lashed a two-run homer. Taylor Pike added two hits. Southampton (13-10) lost to Babylon Saturday to end the season.

Southold Takes C Crown; Mattituck Eliminated By Rick Murphy

The Southold Settlers, who flirted with a perfect season, are the Suffolk County Class B champions and will play for the Long Island Championship tomorrow. Southold knocked off Pierson/ Bridgehampton in two straight to take the Class C title. Southold proved too much for the game but overmatched Whalers. The Settlers won on the road on May 21, 12-5 to end the series. Pat McFarland earned the win on the hill and the Settlers used a balanced hitting attack led by Noah Mina, Doug Fiedler and Pat McFarland to overwhelm the home team. Southold, playing at home,

blasted Pierson in the opener two days earlier, 9-1. Dylan Clausen held the Whalers at bay to earn the win, Greg Gehring record three ribbies, and McFarland ripped two hits in three at bats, scored one and batted in another. Southold is 19-3 on the season. Southold will take on East Rockaway at the Dowling Athletic Complex at 5 PM for the Long Island Championship and a berth in the New York State Class C tournament. The Mattituck Tuckers, defending Long Island Class B champions and the top seed in the doubleelimination B tournament were stunned by Center Moriches on May 23 and eliminated from contention.

The Red Devils went on the take the title. Playing at home, the Tuckers ran into a buzz saw in David Franchi who ripped four hits. His two-run double in the tenth broke open a tie game and the Red Devils tacked on two more runs against Victor Proferes to put the game out of reach. Center Moriches, only 8-8 in League VIII action, is now 14-9 and ascends into the Long Island Class B title game tomorrow against Wheatley at SUNY Farmingdale.

The locals won their opener but were upset at home Saturday by Babylon 3-1. Sean Flynn bested Christian Figurniak in a pitchers’ battle, forcing Mattituck into the loser’s bracket. Babylon is 17-4 on the season, and Mattituck 19-3. Westhampton, the number eight seed, was eliminated from the Class A tournament on May 16, 7-4 by Islip (seventh seed), 7-4. Nick Arpino took the loss for the locals, who finished with a 10-11 mark.

Coast Guard Auxiliary News By Vincent Pica

Commodore, First District, Southern Region (D1SR) United States Coast Guard

Summer Isn’t Far Away, But Warm Water Is We’ve had a few really hot days. And the traditional start o’ summer -- Memorial Day -- is now behind us. We’ve had a cold and rainy spring for the most part, and summer is close aboard. However, the water will be cold for several weeks and you need to be aware of how dangerous that can be – if you aren’t prepared and savvy. This column is about that.

Warm Air, Cold Water I like a warm day early in the season as much as the next mariner. But the water itself is just about as deadly as it is in the deep of winter. Remember that water takes heat from your body 25 times faster than air of the same temperature. You can impress this on your young boaters, and yourself, quite easily. Lay out a glass of water before

you turn in one night. It will be room temperature by the morning. Now take two ice cubes from the freezer. Put one on a dry napkin next to the room-temperature glass on water. Drop the second ice cube into the glass. In theory, both ice cubes are exposed to the same temperature, room temperature. But when the ice cube on the napkin starts to show a damp line around itself, the ice cube in the glass will have melted away. This is why hypothermia is so insidious and dangerous.

Precautions? Yes! It’s a beautiful day in March or April and you’re just dying to tool out for awhile. And why not? How great is it when the waters are too cold for the algae and other microscopic sea life so can you can

see all the way to the sandy bottom? Great indeed but don’t make way without a few simple but important precautions. Step #1 Has the engine been prepped from its long winter snooze? Are you fueled up? Is there some fuel enhancer thrown in? Certainly, there is likely to be some condensation in the tank and that water will precipitate down to the bottom of the tank . . . and some might get sucked up into the engine. So, engine prepped, fuel tank full and fuel enhancer thrown in, or no-go. Step #2 Did you file a float plan with somebody? Do it, or no-go. If you do end up in trouble, getting the “rescue clock” started ASAP is imperative. The environment is inherently more dangerous when the water is cold. Step #3 If you don’t have cold-water life jacket gear, you’re playing Russian Roulette with your own life. When we put to sea, if the water temperature is 60-degrees F or less, USCG regulations require us to be in “mustang” suits – which aren’t as encompassing as a dry suit but certainly offer significant protection in the event of an immersion. Admittedly, when the air is warm, those “mustangs” are like Turkish steam baths, but we’re safe. At the very least, a float coat provides warmth and at the same time doubles as a life jacket that will float a person. Just acknowledge that it isn’t as safe as a “mustang.” Be sure that your flotation gear has a whistle and an emergency strobe light attached. If you’ve invested in a Personal Locator Beacon, great.

would be superb. You can signal over 20 miles with one smaller than the size of your fist. Airline pilots are trained to call in sightings of targeted reflections. Step #4 Review cold water sur vival techniques and risks with your crew. If you fall in, get out. Even if you have to climb onto the hull of the over-turned boat (yes, Bunky, that happens!), get out. Remember the ice cube experiment. Limit your movements! Strenuous activity increases your heart rate, which increases the rate that blood, cooled at the surface of your body, is circulated to the central core – where it will kill you. Assume a heat-emitting lessening position – in the water or out (HELP.) Cross your legs to protect your groin area from giving up heat. Put your arms across your chest and your hands under your arm pits to do the same thing. If you’re a 200-lb man, here is a rough guideline of your survival time: temperature of water: expected survival time 70–80° F (21–27° C): three hours too indefinitely 60–70° F (16–21° C): two to 40 hours 50–60° F (10–16° C): one to six hours 40–50° F (4–10° C): one to three hours 32.5–40° F (0–4° C): 30–90 minutes <32° F (<0° C): Under 15–45 minutes If you’re smaller, less time. If you’re larger, more time. Have a good meal before you make way. It will warm your body from the inside as the fires of digestion do their work. BTW, if you are interested in being part of USCG Forces, email me at JoinUSCGAux@aol.com or go directly to the D1SR Human Resources Department, which is in charge of new members matters and we will help you “get in this thing.”

After West bids 2H (a premptive bid), the NS team quickly bids to a small slam in notrump. When dummy comes down, South can see 11 top tricks. His task then is to develop another trick in either spades or clubs. He would like to have one of the black jacks fall when he plays the A, K and Q. Since declarer can afford to lose one trick, he lets West win the first trick and believes he can put pressure on East to make a discard that he may not wish to make. After South wins the second heart lead, East discards a diamond because he can see that he must save all 4 of his spades and clubs. Next South puts more pressure on East by playing his 4 top diamonds. On the fourth diamond East must discard either a club or a spade. Again, he must keep all 4 spades. East discards a club. When declarer then plays his top three clubs, East and West run out of that suit and South’s small club gives him his twelfth trick. West’s initial 2H bid told South that East had only one heart and might be forced to discard a crucial card. Well thought out and well played. Any comments or questions can be sent to gaman13927@aol.com. If you know four or five dedicated people who would like to learn how

to play the world’s most exciting and challenging card game, please call me at 631-766-6656 or email me at the above address.
