Musings With Nancy Atlas

Independent/Lisa Marie Mazzucco

By Bridget LeRoy

Nancy Atlas is on a roll, in more ways than one.

First off, she’s just dropped another CD, Cut and Run. Featuring the singer-songwriter’s raspy delivery on her artful originals – part rock-and-roll, part sea-shanty, 100 percent Long Island – with her solid bandmates of over 20 years, the album also offers up a sloweddown, sexy, soul-filled version of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene,” which is gaining attention and radio play.



Second, on this Thursday at noon, Atlas has just finished an impassioned, high-energy two hours on the air with WPPB 88.3 FM’s Bonnie Grice during the Southampton NPR station’s quarterly fundraiser, and the team

met their goal, and then some. Only a week ago, lightning hit the station and fried the tower and expensive radio equipment, and Nancy offered to come and play an event for anyone who would call and donate the $15,000 to replace the lightning rod. It happened at 11:56, with just four minutes to spare. Grice and Atlas alternately screamed, cried, shouted profanities (not on the air, of course), and there were hugs all around.

Sitting outside the station moments later, admiring Atlas’s locally legendary ’69 Cadillac Eldorado Deville and a few rare moments of sun, Nancy is still juiced up. “I don’t think people realize

how much work this is,” she said honestly. “There’s no team here working on my behalf; it’s me. My days are so full, with so much. But I love it,” she said, smiling. “I love what I do. And I never did particularly well working for a boss. I used to think I wanted an agent, a manager; that it was a sign of success. But now I have really come to believe that I’m exactly where I am supposed to be. I get to do things the way I want them done, and that’s a beautiful thing.” Being a singer-songwriter, performing her own material, requires “a vulnerability,” she said. “Some of the songs are personal.” And painful. One of Cut and Run’s tracks, “Los Angelitos,” features the lyrics, “Lately the days all fall

around her, and her blue eyes hurt in the sun. She’s got an altar behind the washer, where she kneels to put the bottles when she’s done.” Another song, “The Tale of Johnny Lode,” tells the true story of a local fisherman who fell off a boat and spent 13 tortuous hours in the ocean. The recently-released book, A Speck in the Sea, which recounts the event in detail, begins with Atlas’s words, “The Ocean’s your mother, your bitch and your lover, and nobody gets to ride free.” There are light-hearted tunes as well, like the Calypso sounds of “Ookie Ookie,” which Atlas says almost didn’t make the cut “but the seagull noises made it a good lead-in after ‘Johnny Lode.’”

The Gabby Wild Foundation hosted "Catwalk For Canines," an ethical and eco-friendly fashion show at the Southampton Social Club in Southampton on Saturday afternoon. The event served as a fundraiser for the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation. Myself and Indy reporter Nicole Teitler were asked to walk the catwalk. The fashion show featured models and canines. All of the clothing in the show was sustainable and ethically produced. I wore a look by the designer Deiá. Other designers included Barbara D’Altoè’s fashion house, Maison Rodé, Marita Wrong, MXN Clothing, and Pelush.

Funds raised in the raffle went towards the Gabby Wild Foundation's conservation efforts, which include rainforest reforestation and monitoring of the critically-endangered Sumatran tiger, Sumatran elephant, and Sumatran rhino. Ticket sales went directly to support the Southampton Animal Shelter foundation.

June 14 2017

Montauk Beach After Photo: James Katsipis

SO, NOW YOU ARE GOING TO MANAGE OUR RESTAURANTS? East Hampton Town residents only need to look at the Montauk beach photos, before and after, to understand that government intervention has a cost. James Katsipis’ photos (above) provide objective evidence. There are also costs with government intervention in the separate issue of operation of private businesses in East Hampton Town, restaurants and resorts. In 2003, the Uniform Code of New York State was rewritten to eliminate “Not In My Back Yard” (NIMBY) local government efforts to suppress innovation and investment. Local town or village codes in this area can still be adopted if the local government agrees to follow the Uniform Code, but local code cannot be stricter than the Uniform Code. In New York State, the “uniform code” covers the areas of Property Maintenance (including exterior property), Building Code, Fire Code, Existing Building Code, Plumbing Code, Electrical Code and the establishment of occupancy regulations for commercial properties (defined as occupancy load). The “occupancy loads” calculation refers to the fire safety of occupancy of interior spaces and the exit safety of those exterior spaces used by a business. The interior occupancy loads differ based upon interior standing occupancy (5 square feet per person) to interior tables and chairs (15 square feet per person) and a third interior computation (7 square feet per person) for circumstances of fixed seating (such as auditorium seating). In contrast to interior occupancy load calculations, the only proper occupancy load calculation for an exterior space used by a business is that of fire safety. Is there a route to a public way sufficient for the people who can occupy the exterior space to exit safely? Once that question is answered in the affirmative, there is no other occupancy load limitation available under the Uniform Code for an exterior space used by a restaurant in the course of the operation of a business on its private property. Local code cannot be stricter than the Uniform Code. Under the Uniform Code, independent government professionals are to be hired after rigorous civil service qualification and testing. The Chief Fire Marshal and the Chief Building Inspector for a Town are allowed to issue a Notice of Violation giving the owner or manager of property 30 days to remedy a purported violation of Uniform Code objectively determined by the Chief Fire Marshal or Chief Building Inspector. The recipient of the Notice of Violation has the right to appeal the Notice of Violation to the New York Department of State, seek a variance from the Department of State or seek a stay of any further town action under the Uniform Code. Except in East Hampton. Rather than follow the mandatory terms of the Uniform Code, East Hampton Town has used their own stricter local codes and a department called “Code Enforcement” to illegally issue thousands of immediate local town justice court summons. These local court summonses, rather than following Uniform Code “notices of violation” warnings with the NY Department of State protections outlined, do not provide the 30 day notice, do not provide any appeal to Department of State, and do not provide any variance or stay of prosecution rights through the Department of State to the owners and residents. East Hampton Town, simply put, illegally takes away these state mandated prophylactic rights for owners and residents. But when certain members of the town board secretly decided last month to directly threaten the very survival of restaurant businesses with code changes which deprived the restaurants of long-standing Uniform Code protected rights to outside dining, waiting areas and standing areas and entertainment, the businesses as a whole understood that a new game was afoot. To business, the Town Board wanted to do to private restaurants and resorts what they had done to the beach in Montauk. Eliminate them as an unnecessary attraction for an unwanted element. In seeking that end, the Town government was looking to fashion and use local code stricter than the Uniform Code. The Town raised the false premise that the interior and exterior occupancy load calculations under the Uniform Code could be made stricter by transport into a local town “zoning” regulation. The Town’s intentional elimination of the Chief Building Inspector position was meant to aid in that effort, to dull the distinct differences between Uniform Code building, fire and property maintenance regulation which pre-empts any stricter local code provision, and zoning. The Chief Building Inspector wore two hats, serving as an objective local traffic cop to channel the separate issues down their respective roads. The Town got rid of the honest cop. In the past, anonymous individuals had made it their business to malign the professionalism of former Chief Building Inspectors Don Sharkey and Tom Preiato where the latter made objective and professionally reasonable determinations (which have been borne out over time). Individuals manufactured baseless allegations dealing with the Chief Building Inspector’s interactions in town oversight of investors in successfully enhancing (a) run down housing in Amagansett and (b) a run-down motel in Montauk into attractive market options. Now, the present town government has simply eliminated professional staffing for the supervision of the building department (illegally assuring Suffolk Civil Service eligible hires that they have no place in the East Hampton system) and prevented any exercise of independent professional judgment in the building department. This elimination of an independent building department allows the town board to steer any disgruntled investors to their alternative mechanisms; politically connected law firms to steer permit applications through the town government, and the designated bulwark against development, the zoning board of appeals (ZBA) and their lengthy processes. Indeed, under this model, with the elimination of the independent professionalism of the Fire Marshal and the Building Department, the town government centered “Planning” function has been provided all of the power without fear of rebuttal by any professional opinion. Eliminating “waiting areas” in restaurants is deemed acceptable in such a “bubble”. The ridiculous is acceptable because it is predicated upon the town’s long term planning agenda. As an East Hampton Star editorial from last week described the town’s agenda, “growth should actually be reversed…to eliminate problematic attractions, such as scarcely contained outdoor entertainment venues.” That means defying the Uniform Code to create stricter local codes which allow the town to target, at their whim, every functioning restaurant and resort. There is no legal basis for the town controlling outside dining. Town government interference with the very operation of business is a violation of clearly established state law. The town’s actions are rooted in its’ distaste for the state’s purpose of the Uniform Code, to promote investment and growth. Indeed, it appears that the entire East Hampton Town government is now predicated on fear. Fear of private consumer demand and private success dooming the government’s central “planning” concepts. Fear that a restaurant already in business in the town may actually come up with popular ideas, institute the ideas, and those popular ideas would gain public acclaim. In short, East Hampton Town government fears America itself, and everything American innovation brings to the table. Inside table and outside table.

The CFDA Fashion Awards is not called “the Oscars of fashion” for nothing. Glam, glam, and even more glam guests arrived at the Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom in style and never too fashionably late to this awards ceremony.

For the first time ever, the event was broadcast on Facebook live. For any devotees who forever longed to be a fly on the wall, this was a dream come true. Seth Meyers’s return this year as the host set the tone with his usual playful wit and wisdom on all things sartorial. Raf Simons, our Belgian in New York, was the big winner of the night for both menswear and womenswear designer of the year. He really made his mark on Calvin Klein.

Kenneth Cole fittingly was honored with the inaugural Swarovski 26

Award for Positive Change. No one in fashion deserves that more than him, as both he and his wife Maria Cuomo Cole do so much for our society. Special Board of Directors’ tributes were given to feminist leader (among other things) Gloria Steinem, the multi-talented Janelle Monae, and Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards.

A highlight of the night was Anna Wintour’s heartfelt speech honoring the late Franca Sozzani, longtime editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia, for the Fashion Icon Award. Sozzani’s son, Francesco Carrozzini, accepted the award on behalf of his mother. The soon-to-be son-in-law of Anna Wintour, he is engaged to the beautiful Bee Shaffer - the couple is indeed fashion royalty. Continued On Page 68.

Folks were out and about in true Hamptons’ style this week. The sun was shining and the good vibes were plentiful. As it became progressively warmer throughout the week the jackets came off and warm weather attire prevailed. 28

Daytime fashions included sundresses, jeans, stylish sandals and handbags, and striped shirts. Those out on the town dressed casual while still looking oh-sofashionable during the daytime hours.

Indy Style ocean-inspired designs, we created a collection of beautiful accessories perfect for any summertime adventure.      Tell us about your philanthropic work. Philanthropy has become an integral part of our business, and it all started with three words my stepfather Rob spoke to me during his battle with brain cancer: “You do good.” He taught me that the most important work I could do is use my talents to better the lives of the people around me. That’s why, to this day, we at Kendra Scott abide by a firm “never say no” policy. A national charity, a hometown crisis, a local organization, or a friend in need, we believe we always have something to give. I’m proud to say that in 2016 alone, we gave back $3.5 million and donated over 75,000 pieces of jewelry, and this year we’re reaching for even larger giveback goals.

Family, Fashion, And Philanthropy With Kendra Scott

By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

At the core of everything she does is “family, fashion, and philanthropy.” As a mom, designer, and entrepreneur, American fashion designer Kendra Scott makes it her mission to give back. She designed her first jewelry collection in 2002. The $500 project, started in her guest bedroom, is now a billiondollar global fashion brand. Kendra Scott has opened her first pop-up shop in Southampton for the summer season. The space, located at 44A Main Street, boasts the lifestyle brand’s seasonal jewelry collections. The latest summer collection takes center stage and introduces local shoppers to her unique and bold designs.  The new location will also feature the coveted Kendra Scott Color Bar, offering customers a unique interactive experience to create customized jewelry in minutes. 30

The shop will remain open until early September.

What brought you to Southampton for this summer’s pop-up shop? What didn’t bring us to The Hamptons?! The majestic towns, the people, the philanthropy… and of course the gorgeous ocean views. I am so inspired by Southampton’s energy, friendliness, and passion for giving back that fits so well with our brand’s core values.     Tell us about the Kendra Scott Color Bar. Years ago, back when our company was still very small, my team and I would design jewels in our studio to match our outfits for the day, or for a date that night, or a wedding that weekend. I started the Color Bar™ so that every woman could create

a beautiful custom piece of jewelry that can be made in minutes. We started the concept as a trunk show, first setting up shop at Henri Bendel in New York -- we were supposed to stay for three days and ended up staying for three months! That’s where the concept was born, and today we have the Color Bar in each of our 60+ Kendra Scott stores across the country, and on our website. What is the focus of your summer collection? Summer is my favorite season, especially when I’m by the beach with my family. I always say I’m happiest when my toes are in the sand. With this collection, I wanted to bring to life the beauty you’d find in a sun-soaked day by the sea. With a focus on playful colors and details paired with handcrafted,

Will you be spending time in The Hamptons this summer, and if so, what are you most excited about? Of course! I can’t wait to visit our store on Main Street in Southampton and am so inspired by the architecture and design of the area. I can’t wait to connect with the Southampton community and partner with local charities in a big way. The beautiful beaches don’t hurt either. What’s your perfect Hamptons summer outfit, including jewelry? For a day strolling around Main Street with my family, I’d choose an easy pair of jeans and a fun summer top - I’ve been loving the embroidery trend lately - paired with a head-turning statement accessory. My favorites this season are the Georgina necklace and our Misha tassel earrings. And then, since you’ll hardly ever catch me in flats, a comfortable pair of wedges for chasing my three boys around town. For more information on Kendra Scott visit

A Day With One Kings Lane

By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

On Thursday morning a newly customized One Kings Lane Hampton Jitney headed to the East End. The Independent joined a group of the retailer’s guests for a preview of the new pop-up shop in Southampton, which opened Memorial Day weekend. The store is located on the corner of Jobs Lane and Main Street in the former Rogers Memorial Library. It’s the company’s first brick-andmortar shop. The first stop of the day was a tour of the store’s location. The 36

home decor and furniture retailer has created a beautiful mix of contemporary and vintage design pieces. The retailer fills the location with items that nicely complement the space, bringing life to the historic building that has sat vacant for years. After the tour of the store, we were shuttled to DIA: The Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton. The space, originally a firehouse in 1908 and a church after that, was established in 1983 as a permanent installation of Flavin’s work. It

Stony Hill Stables Foundation

Stony Hill Stables in Amagansett has been owned and operated by the Hotchkiss family for more than five decades. Six years ago, the Stony Hill Stables Foundation was just a twinkle in the eye of Wick Hotchkiss. Then Hotchkiss -- a second-generation Stony Hill Stables owner, USDF gold medalist, and 2016 Long Island Dressage Association rider of the year -- joined forces with Maureen Bluedorn, a rider at Stony Hill with an extensive background in launching nonprofit scholarship programs. The pairing turned the idea for the Stony Hill Stables Foundation into a reality.

“As both an active member in the equestrian world and local Amagansett resident, it has been my lifelong dream to make the equestrian experience more accessible in our community,” said Hotchkiss. This struck a chord with Bluedorn who thought it would be a good idea to help local children interested in the equestrian field.

Five scholarships are awarded annually. Local residents of Montauk, Amagansett, East Hampton, Sag Harbor, Southampton, and Westhampton are encouraged to apply.

“The scholarship is the reason why I am who I am today,” said Renny Murphy, the 2014 SHSF scholarship recipient. “Without the scholarship I never would have continued riding. The scholarship made me realize that horseback riding is my passion and that it influences everything I do. Stony Continued On Page 65.

“I used to work with the National Symphony Orchestra, we’d give out scholarships,” said Bluedorn. “I thought, ‘Why not here?’” Through a lot of hard work and collaboration, the Stony Hill Stables Foundation was born. Its mission: to create essential opportunities for children and adults to connect with the community, grow physically and emotionally, while benefiting from a life-enhancing experience.

The Foundation promotes equine sports through riding education and competitive opportunities for children and young adults in the local East End community. It’s the only facility on Long Island to offer this unique scholarship program. The annual Stony Hill Stables Foundation benefit will be held on Saturday, June 24, from 6 to 8 PM, on the grounds of the stables on Town Lane. What is Hotchkiss looking

Recipe Of The Week by Chef Joe Cipro

Shrimp Pasta With Summer Vegetables Ingredients (Serves 4) 16 shrimp (peeled and deveined) 1 large zucchini (diced)

1 lb medium sized heirloom tomatoes 1 lb penne pasta

1/3 c white wine 1/4 c chick peas 2 tbsp butter

1 clove garlic (sliced thin)

1 can artichokes (cut in half lengthwise) olive oil

salt and pepper to taste Method Begin by bringing a large pot of water to a boil with 3 tbsp of salt and 1 tbsp of olive oil, cook the pasta in the salted water for 8-10 minutes. While this is happening gently roast the tomatoes in a 325 degree oven; after about 5 minutes the skin will blister, remove them from the oven and peel away the skin then return them to the oven

for another 15 minutes.

At this point the pasta should be ready. Drain the pasta and run cold water over it. Set aside until you're ready to assemble the dish. In a large sautĂŠ pan or a 2" deep roasting pan, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil. Season the shrimp and sear on each side for one minute. Once you've finished searing the second side add the garlic and toast in the pan for one minute. Now you can add all the other vegetables. Deglaze the pan with the white wine and let it reduce for about one minute, add the butter and the pasta and stir gently.

4 oz. red onion enchilada sauce

Deconstructed Chicken Enchilada

The colors of the summer season are actually what inspired my idea for the deconstructed enchiladas. Taking a classic Mexican dish and adding it to our modern Mexican menu at Union Cantina, I wanted to make sure that I was able to capture the vibrancy of both flavor and texture that the summer season inspires. INGREDIENTS:  6 oz. pulled chicken

1.5 c. shredded cheese blend (Asadero cheese, Cheddar, and Monterey Jack) 2/3 c. queso fresco

3 crispy 4” corn tortillas

also drank wine and smoked, and By Rick Murphy he lived to a ripe old age but he

gave us skim milk aka low fat milk, which looked watery. You have to put half a carton in your coffee before it changes colors.

Got Milk? I actually use almond “milk.” Reluctantly. I put it in my oatmeal. Let me point out that I feel about oatmeal the same as I do about almond milk: I don’t like the looks of it but my wife makes me eat it because it is supposedly good for me.

None of them are capable of producing real milk. The spittle we drink may be called “milk” but it ain’t. The whole concept is udderly ridiculous.

When I was little our parents forcefed us milk. It was years later when the truth began to leak out: stories like this one, from The Express in London: “Study shows drinking three glasses of milk a day can lead to earlier death . . .

We’ve all learned the hard way about this kind of thing. I remember when there was a massive advertising campaign urging parents to give their kids three big glasses of milk every day.

Of course, almond milk isn’t really milk. Try baking a cake or like, in my case, corn bread, and you’ll find out for yourselves. Here’s what the folks that make almond “milk” don’t want you to know:

“Milk is a pale liquid produced by the mammary glands of mammals. It is the primary source of nutrition for infant mammals (including humans who breastfeed) before they are able to digest other types of food.” That is the legal definition. Put in terms we can all relate to (since this is the country), think milking a cow as you all surely did many times as kids.

Unless I’m sadly mistaken, almonds have no mammary glands. You cannot milk an almond, no more than you can milk a soybean or a grain of rice.

. . high levels of lactose and galactose found in milk are to blame. These sugars can increase oxidative stress and chronic inflammation in the body – both of which are major causes of a host of killer and chronic diseases.” So let me get this straight: with all the drugs around during the ‘60s, and all the free love, and Vietnam, and drunk drivers, and all the other things that could have killed me, I’m screwed because I drank milk.

Then we had two percent milk, then one percent, and finally zero percent that, when you think about it, probably isn’t milk at all in the technical sense.

When we were kids in Sag Harbor, Vitali Cilli delivered milk from his dairy down at the corner of Glover Street and Long Island Avenue. For years he’d walk in the side door and put a couple of quarts in the icebox. My grandfather got mad once after my aunt Lucy was born; she was Papa’s third daughter and Mr. Cilli made a crack about him not having a son. He was never allowed in the house again. It was an Italian thing but thank God no fish heads showed up in the icebox.

Actually, Cilli kept delivering milk, only he left it outside on the side porch instead.

Each bottle had pure cream floating on the top. The first thing Papa would do is chug some of it. He

There is me, of course, his grandson. Being the masculine guy I am, it annoys me I have almond milk in my oatmeal and eat steamed veggies and live a healthy lifestyle. I blame my sissification on Karen, of course. That is why I announcing today that I intend to get a motorcycle, and I’m not kidding. I want to dress in black leather, wear boots with studs on them, rev up my Harley and channel James Dean and Steve McQueen. In the coming weeks read more about my search for the perfect hog while I master the tough guy biker lingo that goes with it.

And if I want to take a couple shots of the white stuff – the pure stuff – I will, damn it. You’d never know it from the above swill, but Rick Murphy is a sixtime winner of the New York Press Association Best Column Award.


By the way, in the same article it was pointed out “drinking milk does not prevent broken bones,” so put that old wives’ tale to rest.

Let’s not get into all the tablespoons of chocolate syrup and powder we added to the milk when we were kids. Your dentist can tell you more about that. So did we do away with milk? Of course not. The dairy industry is way too powerful. Instead they
