Singing For Sandy

It was, in a word, “overwhelming,” according to Legislator Jay Schneiderman, one of the key organizers of a concert and telethon held to raise money for Hurricane Sandy Relief at LTV Studios in Wainscott last Saturday night. A musician himself, Schneiderman wanted to host a benefit concert almost immediately after news of devastation throughout the region hit the waves. He joined with Peter Israelson and Seth Redlus of LTV, plus East Hampton Town Councilman Dominick Stanzione and Julie Stone to form a core working group. Using social media the group created the event and put up its first Facebook post on November 4, just six days before curtain time. Schneiderman estimated some 600 people came out to see over a dozen local musical acts including (pictured on this page) Caroline Doctorow and Alfredo Merat. The lawmaker said the response to the initial posts and offers of help were extraordinary, especially from local bands and performers. “I couldn’t even get everyone who wanted to go onto the stage. I must have turned away dozens of bands.” At one point Saturday night, the studio was so packed, organizers had to make supporters wait to be admitted until others left, in order to comply with occupancy regulations. The final figures were not available at press time, but the preliminary kitty tops $34,000, thanks to a matching grant pledged by area philanthropist Andy Sabin. The show -- which was originally planned to last two hours and stretched to almost four -- was broadcast live across the East End, thanks to assistance from Cablevision. “I don’t think that’s ever happened before,” Schneiderman noted, “It became like Peconic TV.” Volunteers took “thousands of dollars” of pledges by phone, he reported. With some East Enders still experiencing power outages and the aftermath of Sandy, “The community was really looking for a way to come together. You got that feeling.” Schneiderman said people kept approaching him and suggesting that he host more community events like last Saturday night’s. “But without the hurricane,” he said. K.M.

Coming Soon The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (PG13) So like, umm, I know this guy, right, and like, um, he really likes me and I caught him looking at me in study hall, and then like, he like kissed me and he had fangs but it wasn’t really gross it was like, ummm, sexy? And then this other guy who my dad knows is really cool and never wears a shirt and like, um, he’s a werewolf, OK? So like we umm, we all fight and stuff and we can all fly and we all growl and hurtle through space and stuff like that, OK? So ummm . . . all the werewolves and vampires, we, like, do these really cool stunts and

we,like, have a really cool surprise planned and we promise if you spend another $500 million on this film we, like, we won’t make any more. Fingers crossed.

New To Theaters

Lincoln (PG-13) * We have our first Oscar favorite: And the drum roll please . . . and the winner is, Daniel Day-Lewis, for his stunning portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg’s epic. Day-Lewis, born in London, already has two trophies, for My Left Foot and There Will Be Blood. Spielberg focuses on the final months of the Lincoln presidency and fashioned an honest historical film that is significant on several levels. The cast, sprinkled with Oscar nominees and winners,

rises to the bar Day-Lewis sets: Sally Field is extraordinary as Mary Todd Lincoln and Tommy Lee Jones, Hal Holbrook, James Spader, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, David Strathairn (William Seward), John Hawkes et al all deliver the goods for Spielberg. This film could nail multiple Oscars and will certainly be in the Best Picture/Best Director hunt.

New On DVD

Your Sister’s Sister Director Lynn Shelton hasn’t had much commercial success – or artistic either, for that matter – with bombs like Humpday, but she crafted a complex and rewarding dramedy with this one. Shelton has attracted an excellent cast, and Emily Blunt, Mark Duplass, and Rosemarie DeWitt play off of

each other like seasoned pros. Part family drama, part sex farce, the film is convoluted, but undeniably original.

Now Playing The Bay (R) Barry Levinson (The Natural) tries his hand at horror in this bloodbath featuring a cast of nobodies. But this eco-apocalyptic nightmare resonates on several levels – it’s a fun film with a dire warning written into it. Give it a try. Skyfall * (PG-13) Bond. James Bond. He’s back (again). This time around Sam Mendes (American Beauty) takes the helm, but Daniel Craig returns as Ian Fleming’s everso-suave super spy and Judi Dench reprises her role as M. You know the plot – Bond has to get to the bottom of some overly ambitious plan to destroy -- pick one: a) the universe b) the civilized world c) The Queen of England d) the British Secret Intelligence Service. It’s the 50th anniversary of the franchise, and Mendes has delivered one of the best yet. Don’t miss it. Also starring Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardom and Naomie Harris as a particularly fetching Miss Moneypenny.

prematurely. Check your facts.

by Asher Lee

Today’s Birthday: Condoleezza Rice, 1954 On this date in 1979 President Jimmy Carter froze all Iranian assets held in the United States in the midst of the hostage crisis. In 1965 the first major battle between American Forces and the North Vietnamese Army took place in Ia Drang. On November 14, 1954 in Birmingham, Alabama, Angelena Rice, a high school music teacher, and her husband John, a guidance counselor and Baptist minister, gave birth to their first and only child. The couple named her after a musical term that meant “with sweetness.” The child, Condoleezza, became the first female African American to hold the position of U.S. Secretary of State under George W. Bush. Rice originally wanted to be a classical pianist but while studying at the University of Denver she became interested in international politics. She graduated cum laude with a BA in Political Science when she was 19. She earned her Master’s at Notre Dame and worked at the State Department during the Carter Administration. She was teaching at Stanford and developed a reputation as being an expert on the Soviet Union. George H. W. Bush hired her a National Security Advisor in 1989 and was said to be “captivated” by her – rumors the pair had an affair were never substantiated. Rice never married and returned to Stanford in 2009. In 2012 she broke another barrier – she became one of the first two women to be admitted to Augusta National Golf Course, the home of the Masters Tournament and an all-male bastion for centuries. Incidentally, Rice is a pretty fair pianist – she’s performed for Queen Elizabeth II and played with Aretha Franklin and Yo-Yo Ma, among many others. ARIES (Mar. 20 - Apr. 20) Things should be feeling a bit better for you. The energy is moving and hard choices you made in the past really do begin to pay off. Enjoy yourself and take time for some much needed fun. TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 21) This week may mark a time of a bit of chaos in a life that you prefer to be more on the dull side. Some things really are out of your hands and you will need to react

quickly and perhaps spontaneously in some situations. I know spontaneity isn’t your forté, but give it a try. GEMINI (May 21 - June 22) Know that in most situations you will probably not have all the information and will be “seeing through a glass darkly.” You are likely to have only part of the truth right now. Take your time and wait and see how things turn out before you over-react and lose your cool

CANCER (June 22 - July 23) Yes, yes, yes is this week’s mantra. Be open to all the new and expansive things that are happening around you. Do something creative. You can even take on some big projects. There is little that won’t be good for you this week as long as it helps you feel that you are growing and becoming more. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 23) This week, more than any other time, it is imperative that you make sure you have all the information before making choices and trying to call someone on ‘their’ stuff. You are probably only seeing part of a situation, so make sure you get the facts. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) This really is a powerful time. You may need to pay attention to what you are doing with all this power, however. You could easily end up hurting someone’s feelings if you fail to appreciate the power of your words and/or actions at this time. Feelings run deep, just pace yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) Frustrated? It is okay, for this hurry up and stay energy is really designed for you to make some things in your life more stable and more long lasting. See if you can go deeper, or get more organized, rather than spreading yourself too thin. It may not be your first choice, but it is a good idea. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 22) You may not be able to fully express how much you are enjoying your life right now, but that’s okay. You may find that poetry or music or art will be better communicators than words right now. This is a good time to expand and grow and move forward, but do take your time. Do NOTHING when angry.

possible, take a bit of a rest this week. Things may seem like they are extra hard to accomplish right now and yet you feel an urgency to do them. It’s a bit of conflicting energy. Later in the week is better for getting things done. Know that you can take your time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 - Jan. 20) This is a great week to take on some home improvement projects that you haven’t felt up to completing. Lots of energy and passion for getting things done and making your world a more beautiful place. Buy yourself some flowers and enjoy the beauty around you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19) This is one of those weeks when people may choose to remind you how ‘intense’ you are. Do you hear that a lot? Well, be prepared, for you may indeed be looking deeply into things and getting lost in the wonder of them. And if you have been flirting with a person or an idea this is the week to take action. PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) The change of seasons must really make itself known this week, for what else could lift your spirits this much? Take the time to see the signs all around you and do make plans for the future. There is no doubt that things which have been stuck, begin to loosen. NOTE: If you were born at the end or beginning of a sign, read the sign before or after your birthday. Asher Lee is a professional Astrologer and Tarot reader.

Play Bridge Some bridge players never saw a finesse that they refused. After all, a finesse usually has a 50-50 chance to succeed- why not try it? The answer is that if the finesse loses, you may lose your contract when you could have made it by another line of play. That is the case with the above hand. After trumping the diamond lead in dummy, one declarer immediately led a small heart to his queen which lost to West’s king. West returned another trump and South could no longer trump his three diamonds and eventually went down one trick. A superior line of play is for declarer to play a trump to his ace on the second trick, forgoing the finesse. Next he leads a club to his

ace and trumps a club in his hand. Then he trumps another diamond in dummy and leads a third club, which he trumps in his hand. Finally, he trumps his last diamond and plays a fourth club, which he trumps in his hand. He returns to dummy with the ace of spades and plays his established club on which he discards the four of spades. West wins only the trump king. Any comments or questions can be sent to Do you know four or five dedicated people who would like to learn how to play the world’s most exciting and challenging card game? If so, call me at 631-907-2917 or email me at the above address.

The Riverhead Shelter has approximately 20 dogs and many

have been there for a long time. The dogs are visited by volunteers, who offer walks and companionship, but time is limited. Most of their days are spent alone in a kennel, waiting for someone to recognize the love and loyalty the lies behind those soulful eyes. If they could speak they would tell you about the countless hours, days and months they’ve been waiting for you. Please come visit them. If you cannot adopt, take one for a walk. Give them a reason to hope. Call 631-369-6189 or look for them on, zip code 11901.

Seared Bay Scallops

With Roasted Cauliflower, Squash Sauce And Crisp Kale Ingredients (serves4) 1lb Peconic Bay scallops 1 butternut squash 1 head of cauliflower 3 kale leaves 1 tbsp honey 3 tbsp olive oil 1 lb butter cut into cubes 1 small bunch of thyme 1 bay leaf 1/2 white onion (chopped) cheese cloth & butcher’s twine salt and pepper to taste

Method Heat your oven to 375 degrees, then carefully cut the florets from the head of cauliflower. Toss them with one tbsp of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast them in the oven for 45 minutes. Cut off the base of the squash, scoop out the guts and seeds. Peel it, chop it up and cook it in a small pot with three cups of water, the onion, and the herbs wrapped up in the cheese cloth and tied tightly. Allow that to cook over medium high heat for 30 minutes or so, until the squash is really soft. Remove the spine from the kale leaves and cut them into thin strips. Toss them in one tbsp of olive oil, making sure to rub the oil into the kale. Spread them out over a sheet tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with salt when they come out of the oven.

When the squash is soft, remove the herb bouquet and the onion, reserving only the squash itself and the flavorful cooking liquid. Blend the squash and cooking liquid on high and add your honey. Strain the resulting sauce through a fine strainer, into a small sauce pot, and allow the sauce to reduce over a medium heat until you are left with about one cup of actual liquid (this needs to be watched carefully). When the sauce is ready, take it off the heat and whisk in the butter cubes, slowly adding them one or two at a time until you have reached a sauce consistency that coats the back of a spoon (you likely will not use all the butter). Now that the sauce and kale are ready, and the cauliflower is close to being done, sear the scallops. Heat a non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add the last tbsp of olive oil and a cube or two of butter into the pan with the scallops. Distribute them over the surface of the pan evenly so that they sear nicely. Allow them to cook on one side for one minute then give them a good shake in the pan to move them around a bit. Cook them for just one more minute and they should be done. To serve, ladle some of the sauce on the plate first, followed by the cauliflower and scallops. Top the dish off with the crispy kale and enjoy.
