BARACK OBAMA EASILY DEFEATS MITT ROMNEY IN THE DEBATES A totally comfortable and confident Barack Obama easily defeated a fumbling, ill-at-ease Mitt Romney in all three of the 2012 debates. President Obama made all the telling points and outlined his plan to bring back the economy by imposing a “fair tax” on all American families earning over $250,000 a year. The President promised a return to five percent unemployment by 2016 as a result of his soon-to-besuccessful “shovel ready” hiring program that he has been talking about since 2008. Mitt Romney’s “Make the United States Energy Independent” plan was successfully dismissed by President Obama when he said that the Romney plan would pollute the atmosphere and lose us all our good friends in the Middle East. Obama then scored considerable points when he outlined his “Greener IndependentAd_July12_Vert.pdf 1 Than Green” plan to finance start-up

green energy companies by funding them with oil companies’ profits. He added that giving up all their profits was the “fair and patriotic” thing for the oil companies to do. He also promised that by 2015 every car on the road will be getting 85 mpg. Wait a second, you may be saying, the debates haven’t taken place yet. How can Jerry Della Femina know how they are going to turn out? Simple. I have a crystal ball and I looked into the present and saw all the “Who won the debate” stories that are being written now, before the first debate, by The New York Times, The Washington Post, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC. It’s the same reason you’re still reading about Romney’s 47 percent gaffe in The New York Times, but you are not reading about Obama’s gaffe trying to minimize the recent killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, the uprisings in Syria 7/27/12 4:33 popular PM that have resulted in over 20,000 deaths and the election in Egypt of a Your Home is Your member of the Muslim Brotherhood as “bumps in the road.” Most Valuable Asset So trust a company that’s always here for you. Bumps in the road? Just imagine if Mitt Romney had said that. Think of all the trees that would have been cut down to make enough

paper so The New York Times could repeatedly say how outraged they were that Romney called a terror attack a “bump in the road.” Think of the hours of network time that would have been devoted to news anchors like Brian Williams solemnly looking out at America and pretending to examine for the umpteenth time why an “out-oftouch Romney chose to call murder a bump in the road.” Barack Obama, with the help of the media he has in his pocket, tried to pin the murder of an American ambassador (on the day of anniversary of September 11) on a protest over a stupid movie, instead of what it was, an act of terrorism. Just go back and re-read Brave New World or 1984 and you will understand how this works: If you don’t say it is terrorism, than it isn’t terrorism. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said last week that there can be no doubt that terrorists had planned and carried out the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. The New York Times did not print a single word about Mr. Panetta’s statement. Apparently it was not “All the News That Was Fit to Print.” So how can Mitt Romney win? He can’t. Not as long as the media thinks the record of his ver y successful stint as the leader of Bain Capital or his last income tax filings

IN THE NEWS

are so, so much more important to the American people than Obama’s record with the economy for the last four years. Or the fact that we have 9.2 percent unemployment and things are not getting better, as Obama insists, but they are getting worse. The media doesn’t care that Obama is throwing Israel under the bus. Did you read that Henry Kissinger predicts that there won’t be an Israel in 10 years? No, you probably didn’t. It wasn’t seen as important to the media as Obama’s clowning appearance on “The View.” So enjoy the first debate. And when it’s over and NBC’s Andrea Mitchell and the rest of the media tells you it looks like Obama won the debate, you can be sure it was a draw. But if they tell you that it was a draw, that means Romney won big. They will never, ever tell you Romney won. Then, of course, read The New York Times on Thursday so they can tell you what your lying eyes wouldn’t admit that you saw. Whichever the media outlet you watch, don’t get nervous if you feel something soft on your face. It’s just the wool being pulled over your eyes.

Hospital, College To Collaborate . . . And Construct? By Kitty Merrill

They said, a few years ago when the campus faced closure, that the health of Southampton Town was inextricably linked to the college’s continued operation. If plans announced Monday morning come to fruition, the health of East Enders will be linked to the campus . . . literally. Officials from Southampton Hospital and Stony Brook Medicine gathered with local lawmakers to herald a non-binding letter of intent had been signed by the leadership at Stony Brook University, State Un i v e r s i t y o f N e w Yo r k a n d Southampton Hospital, crafting a collaboration between Stony Brook and Southampton that could mean a new 125-bed facility constructed on the 85-acre campus. And that could mean increased educational opportunities for students and better healthcare accessibility for area residents. “Construction of a new stateof-the-art healthcare facility on the Southampton campus would be another building block in the revitalization of the campus,”“Assemblyman Fred Thiele, who’s been at the forefront of

efforts to ensure the campus’ continued viability, said. “Together with a growing Arts program, the new $10 million Marine Sciences facility, and the establishment of the Peconic Institute, a new hospital would be a major step towards having the Southampton campus reach its educational potential.” A new hospital on the campus “has the potential to provide a tremendous learning environment for students in the health sciences,” Dr. Kenneth Kaushansky, dean of Stony Brook University School of Medicine added. SBU president Dr. Samuel Stanley, Jr. agreed: “This proposal would enable Stony Brook University to expand its education programs on the Southampton campus, helping us to fulfill our mission to train the next generation of healthcare providers across Long Island. Southampton Hospital can provide a valuable teaching and research environment for Stony Brook University students, contributing highly trained healthcare professionals to meet the East End’s needs as the population grows and ages.” Like Thiele, Congressman Tim Bishop, a longtime administrator on the Southampton campus,

has fought for the continuation of the college at the eastern site. He expressed excitement at the prospect of a new hospital that will not just enhance the Stony BrookSouthampton academic mission, but also “launch Southampton Hospital’s second centur y of healthcare excellence.” In addition to ratcheting up educational opportunities, the affiliation will provide, according to Southampton Hospital President and CEO Robert S. Chaloner, “a fantastic opportunity to bring together the intimacy and accessibility of a high quality community hospital with

the specialized clinical resources and educational programs of an academic medical center.” Under the terms of the letter, Southampton Hospital will work under Stony Brook University Hospital’s state license. The two entities will comply with respective public and private sector collective bargaining agreements. With a little over 1,000 employees, Southampton Hospital is the largest employer on the South Fork. A notfor-profit organization, it boasts a medical staff comprised of more than 240 physicians, dentists and Continued on Page 36.

East Hampton Town Budget Up $3 Million By Kitty Merrill

1.7 percent decrease. That works out to a tax rate of $27.86 per $100 of assessed valuation outside the villages, and $10.94 per $100 AV inside the villages. Looking back over the last three years, the super visor’s message offers a synopsis of the fiscal crisis inherited from the last administration -- “budgets and spending that were replete with undisciplined financial decision-making and borrowing; structural deficiencies and a lack of organizational cohesiveness.” The supervisor described how he and advisors were able to pull East Hampton out of the monetary mire -- using restraint when borrowing, lowering overall debt, enacting zero-based budgeting, and streamlining staff. Wilkinson points out that financial and reorganizational decisions he made “were not always popular” and often met with opposition and ridicule from some sectors of the community. Still, he selfcongratulates, with “East Hampton is in a much better position to face the future financially than it would have been if the tough B:37” T:36”

The tentative 2013 budget submitted by East Hampton Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson exceeds the state mandated two percent cap . . . and it can. In his budget message Wilkinson explains that a tax levy decrease this year meant a credit for next year, and a state-computed tax cap of 4.19 percent. Wilky’s budget proposes a 3.17 percent increase, meaning it still doesn’t use all the cap space available. The tentative budget of $69 million and change, is lower – once again – than the budget inherited from disgraced former supervisor Bill McGintee in 2009. “In our first three budgets, the tax rate for those living outside the villages has decreased by 13.19 percent, and for those living inside the villages that decrease has been 28.69 percent,” Wilkinson’s message states. (The difference in the two rates relates to higher assessed property values in the villages.) Next year property owners outside the village will see their tax rate increase by 4.6 percent, while those inside the villages receive a

decisions were not made early and decisively.” One of the criticized decisions, to include enough money to operate the town’s scavenger waste facility for just three months in the 2012 budget, led to a deficit in the fund. New Democratic Town Board members Sylvia Overby and Peter Van Scoyoc stalled a planned privatization of the plant earlier this year. Wilkinson reminds, in his message, that the prior board voted unanimously to sell or privatize the plant. The stalemate over the plant’s future this year, means “We are now forced to levy more than $700,000 in property taxes on residents that I believe would not have been necessary if the previous Town Board’s decision of 2011 was implemented in 2012.” And though consensus on the future of the plant remains elusive, Wilkinson crafted his spending plan for next year the same way, with just three months’ funding for its operation. Almost 33 percent of the overall $3.3 million increase in the tentative budget is attributable to the scavenger waste fund and

airport. Cost overruns at the airport triggered the need to use over $100,000 in surplus. Wilkinson’s proposed budget continues to provide grants to a limited number of area social programs, including the adult daycare and senior nutrition programs, plus Phoenix House and the Family Service League. It also includes a two percent pay raise for department heads, appointed and elected officials. With the tentative budget distributed to the town board, members will now make their revisions. Last year, the supervisor killed the annual leaf pickup program to save money. On the campaign trail, also last year, both Dems promised to restore it in the next budget. According to Town Budget Officer Len Bernard, the tentative timeline for adoption of the budget includes a work session discussion of Wilkinson’s proposed document on October 16, a public hearing on November 1 and a vote on November 15. By law the budget must be adopted by November 20. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Throne-Holst Delivers On Promise By Rick Murphy

Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst, keeping a campaign promise, unveiled a tentative 2013 budget that holds the line on property taxes. “I promised our residents I would present a structured, balanced, fair, and realistic budget that protects them from increased taxes, as well

as protects the services they expect. In presenting this tentative budget, I am, again, honoring that promise,” she said. The $82 million budget carries a $57 million tax levy. Throne-Holst acknowledged the town will cut staff and some departments will be restructured. “We have a spike in our debt service coming up in

2013 and 2014 due to borrowing by prior administrations,” the supervisor said. There are also escalating mandatory costs, which include insurance premiums, retirement contributions, workers compensation costs, legal fees, and contractual expenditures, ThroneHolst said. To o f f s e t t h o s e i n c r e a s e d

Springs: STA & BOA Agree After two years of negotiations, the leadership of the Springs Teachers Association and the Springs Board of Education announced that a mutually satisfactory settlement on a new collective bargaining agreement has been reached. The Springs Board of Education will be accepting the ratified collective bargaining agreement at a special meeting Monday evening at 6 PM in the Springs School Library. The agreement, to expire in 2015, include the following: effective July 1, 2014, an increase to health insurance contribution to 15 percent of premiums, a salary increase total of 3.75 percent over the life of the five year contract, two years without salary increase and three years of a deferral of step increases. expenses the town has reduced staffing levels through retirement incentives, attrition, and minimal layoffs, and has capped capital spending at $3 million, down from as much as $10 million. Road paving costs and other cuts to the highway department have its superintendent, Alex Gregor, seeing red. That story is covered elsewhere in this issue. Throne-Holst said the town has eliminated approximately $7 million in deficits in less than three years while maintaining a zero percent increase in the tax levy. Throne-Holst presented her budget to the town board on September 25, five days earlier than the state mandated deadline. “We are now budgeting from a position of financial strength and stability, rather than from one of weakness and uncertainty,” she said, though acknowledging the economic climate has been flat. However, there have been encouraging signs of late, the supervisor said. Southampton has the highest assessed value of any town in Suffolk County, with a value base of $5.5 billion. Moving forward the town wants to consolidate three departments – code, fire, and bay constables, under the umbrella of the Town Attorney’s office and to relocate both Code Enforcement and Public Safety (Fire Marshal) to Town Hall. “This restructuring will go a long way to organizing and implementing strategic, targeted enforcement actions and maximizing the effectiveness of our personnel in all of these divisions,” Throne-Holst.

Supervisor, Gregor Bickering Again By Rick Murphy

The uneasy truce between Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst and Alex Gregor, the town’s Highway Superintendent, is over. The pair has quarreled in the past; usually over Gregor’s insistence that he be allowed to run his department free from what he calls “interference” from the town supervisor. This time around Gregor is fuming because the town’s justreleased 2013 budget cuts his department’s budget and removes chores historically done by the Highway Department, meaning his authority is diminished. Specifically, the street lighting district, which has traditionally been ser viced by the town’s highway department, will now be handled by the parks and recreation department. “That takes away my bucket trucks, it takes away two employees,” Gregor said. “She’s trying to minimize the things I’m trying to accomplish. His paving budget, the method he collects leaves, and even his authority to cut checks to pay bills have been altered. Gregor charges. Throne-Holst agreed changes are being made. But, she insists, it’s business, not personal. She said the entire town board is on board. “We are all in agreement, all five of us.” Throne-Holst said budget constraints have made the changes necessary. “There’s a spike in our debt service because of prior borrowing. We’ve had to limit capital spending.” Gregor said one proposed change requires that leaves picked on the eastern side of town must be driven back to the North Sea disposal facility. “It’s punitive and it’s a waste of the taxpayers’ money,” Gregor said. Currently he brings leaves picked up in Mount Misery and other points near Sag Harbor to the village’s transfer facility. Other loads collected out east are given to farmers for mulch. The practice saves time and fuel. “We’ve had ongoing discussions with him . . . we’ve asked for information, he hasn’t provided it. The leaves and other debris go to the Municipal Works Dept. You can’t say `I’m going to do this differently. “There are DEC contracts we are bound by,” the supervisor said.

Throne-Holst said the chore of tending to the town’s lights has traditionally been split, with the Parks and Rec employees doing some and the highway department others. She said the consolidation “best serves our constituents.” Gregor said his paving budget will be cut from $3.5 million to $1.4 million, which will take its toll on his ability to keep the town’s streets paved in a timely manner. “He has a healthy surplus in his budget,” Throne-Holst responded, “and this will give him a chance to spend it.” State Senator Ken LaValle also secured $400,000 in state aid for the town’s roads, she added.

Gregor said he now must get approval for expenditures over $500. “I oversee $11 million in highway taxes and all of a sudden

I need the comptroller’s approval to run my department.” It’s all personal, Gregor insisted. “She hates my guts.”

Students Death Shrouded In Secrecy East Hampton High School officials and East Hampton Town Police aren’t talking, but speculation is rampant that a 15 yearold student who died Saturday took his own life. A statement from School Superintendent Richard Burns was posted on the district’s website early Monday. It read in its entirety:  “The district has learned of the passing of East Hampton High School junior David Hernandez Barros. We are truly saddened by this tragic event and extend our deepest condolences to his family during this very difficult time. Our Crisis Intervention Team was immediately contacted and support services are available to both students and staff, as needed.” According to sources emergency personnel responded to call on Wooded Oaks Lane early Saturday afternoon. Detective Lieutenant Chris Anderson of the East Hampton Town Police said an occupant of the house found the youngster, who was already dead. “We have an ongoing death investigation,” he said. Barros lived with his family in the house where his body was found. The buzz on Facebook, which could not be substantiated and may not be true, was that the victim hung himself and had been a victim of bullying and hazing at the high school. “At this time we have no information that the death was a result of bullying,” Det. Lt. Anderson said, “but as I said the investigation is active.” A funeral mass at Most Holy Trinity was scheduled for today at 10 AM. R.M.

Festival Fever On The By Kitty Merrill

Extending the summer season for tourism and the second home industry has been a goal “for decades,” according to Assemblyman Fred Thiele. “One of the best kept secrets about the East End was that the period between Labor Day and Columbus Day is the best time of year,” he pointed out this week. “It has the best weather, still good for the beach, with the added benefit of harvest-time at local farms and wineries. Like the backroads, which used to be a secret only the locals knew, now everyone knows about

fall weekends on the East End. Our local business groups have created a masterful marketing plan for the region that have made fall weekends an economic bonanza, creating more jobs and improving the bottom line for our small businesses.” That marketing plan finds its foundation in an array of autumn-focused festivals, feasts and fairs designed to delight families and visitors. Last week the East End was home to SeptemberFest in Southampton, a music festival in Sag Harbor and a garlic festival on the North Fork. With the holiday coming

up next Monday, Columbus Day weekend offers even more, with major fairs, downtown sidewalk sales, and fests in East Hampton, Montauk, Hampton Bays, Sag Harbor, Westhampton Beach, and Riverhead, plus less extensive, but no less fun, events throughout the region. Here’s a look at two big ones: In Hampton Bays enjoyment will be abbondante, with the second annual San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons.

This year, better fast on Friday to get ready for the dishes served up by some of the 50 food (and non food) vendors that have signed on. A huge tent with tables and chairs will provide comfortable space to enjoy both the food and live entertainment, or just take a browsing break. Live entertainment, they’ve got plenty planned. Five bands and a DJ will alternate sets each day from noon till closing. Roaming minstrels and local talent add to the excitement. A highlight of the event is a parade through the center of town at 11 AM. As the feast comes to a close, a drawing for a Fiat (tickets are limited and $100 a pop) will be held. After the drawing, a Grucci fireworks display sponsored by 1-800 Got Junk will light up the autumn sky.

RICK’S SPACE Going To The Movies? No! When I was a kid the best part of going to the movies was the candy. When I was a teenager the best part of going to the movies were the girls. When I was a young adult the best part of going to the movies was the R-rated movies. Nowadays we watch our movies at home, where the “pause” button allows you to raid the refrig, take a nap, get a drink, or even check out something else on TV and then

go back. Technology like that was unthinkable, even two decades ago. When we were little kids my mother would ship us off to the Saturday matinee every week at the Linden Theater on Nostrand Avenue. I didn’t realize it then, but it was a perfect way to get us out of her hair for the day. It was 15 cents to get in, and most kids would get a quarter, leaving a dime for candy. That was important, because the dime candy machine had chocolate

candy, like Raisinets and Hershey’s chocolate bars. Our mother would give us only 20 cents, so we’d be relegated to the nickel machine, with stuff like Red Hots, Necco Wafers, Juicyfruits, and so on. My favorite was potato sticks, which were fried little crunchy bits of matter, that doubtless contained no potatoes at all. Then again, Bit O Honey didn’t have any honey in the bars, but did have a little peanut butter. By the way, the “cream filling” in Twinkies and Hostess Cupcakes was whipped animal fat: sugar, white food coloring, and enough preservatives to keep it “fresh” for a lifetime.

or Three Stooges movie, and some of the older horror movies like Earth And The Flying Saucers or Them. There were no cute creatures like Big Bird -- all the men looked like lechers and perverts. The place was a dump, there were always kids smoking -- hey, it was Brooklyn -- and yes, in those days movie theaters had smoking sections. At the Linden, smokers sat in the center of the theater, as if smoke was smart enough not to waft over the other sections. (Restaurants allowed smoking as well, usually in half the dining room. I remember at Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor the tables in the smoking section faced those in the non-smoking section, so the smokers blew smoke directly at you. Therefore, those people trying not to die from second hand smoke would literally have been better off sitting in the smoking section.) In the summer the Saturday morning scene shifted to Sag Harbor for us. The theater was a dump, but had a candy counter. The candy was almost always stale, and every once in a while you’d get something that had been in the case for a decade or two. The big thrill was when a water rat ran down the aisles, which happened fairly frequently. The boys would claim a water rat was running around, just so they could look up the skirts of the girls when they stood in horror on their seats. Hey, it was a life. That was as close as we got to sex. Karen’s idea of a cinematic masterpiece is a film about two middle-aged women who sit on a bench and talk about poetry for two hours while leaves fall. My idea of a good movie is a creature from hell with razor sharp teeth goes on a killing rampage in a female nudist colony until some macho guy with a bazooka and a motorcycle beats the living crap out of the thing and then bombs it right back to hell. I don’t ask for much, but if I don’t get a couple of dead bodies and a several buxom babes in the first 10 minutes, I’m out of there. The last really bad movie we sat all the way through was Cast Away where-in Tom Hanks was marooned on an island. For most of the movie nothing was said. He did, however, slurp the raw, sacred innards of a horseshoe crab, grow a really ugly black beard, and make a fire by rubbing two sticks together (hell, we all know that doesn’t really work). He is finally rescued, goes home, and finds out his wife has remarried. “How could you fall in love with another man?” he asked her. “Dude, you fell in love with a freaking soccer ball,” she replied.

EDITORIAL

The Matter Of The Sag Harbor Village Police It is certainly a prudent thing for an incorporated village to explore alternatives when it comes to village services, be it police or highway department or anything else. In Sag Harbor, the village is toying with hiring Suffolk County Sheriffs to take over part, if not all, of its police protection. We can think of other places where it would be prudent to do the same thing – Quogue and especially Westhampton Beach, where officers sometimes run amuck, for example. In Westhampton Beach the police chief is one of the highest paid in the entire country, and that is proof positive the village is wasting taxpayers’ money and has been for years. Greenport Village is policed by Southold Town Police, and that arrangement seems to be working. Sag Harbor officials said it could save about $1 million a year if they availed themselves of the county officers – that would mean getting rid of the 12 current village officers, either through early retirement incentives or layoffs. Mayor Brian Gilbride wants to use the county sheriffs, but keep a local presence – six officers. If the other six want to accept early retirement, that would still save taxpayers significant money. There is more to the story, though. Every village is unique, and Sag Harbor has always been fiercely independent. Cops and folks on the street are on a first name basis, and there’s something to keeping that small town charm intact. The village and the local PBA have been in a stalemate on contract negotiations, and

Independent VOICES

Unnecessary Innuendo Dear Rick, I read your article this past week on the sad tale of Hansom Hills. It is sad because these homeowners and farmers have endured horrendous flooding conditions for well over 10 years with little or no help to alleviate the problem coming from the State, County or local East Hampton government. That remained so until last year when the Wilkinson administration stepped in and tried to fix the problem and give these residents much needed relief. The job has now stopped amidst political shenanigans and finger pointing. We can argue the fine points about who did right and who did wrong -- but at least something positive was finally getting done. However, there should be no argument that Wilkinson and Quigley did not shy away from tackling this enormous problem,

just like they have done on many other occasions over these past 3 plus years. That is why something you included in the article as a parenthetical aside was so stunning to me. “Quigley, like Schneiderman, has her eye on the supervisor’s seat, should Wilkinson not run (or be passed over by the town’s Republican Committee).” (Emphasis added). As the former Treasurer of that Committee, I find your innuendo that the Republican Committee would not wholeheartedly endorse Bill Wilkinson, should he decide to run again for another term (as I hope he will), shocking. Given the facts of Bill’s extraordinary performance that includes saving the town from fiscal ruin, reducing the size of its bloated government, giving much needed relief to East Hampton taxpayers and tackling such tough problems as Hansom Hills, it would make the Committee look foolish (at best) and disloyal (at worst) were it to shun one of the best examples of not only Republican success but a great

the feeling initially was village officials were using the prospect of hiring outside police as a negotiating ploy. Clearly, it has gone beyond that. Local police, like teachers, have benefited by generous contracts that allow arbitrators to resolve disputes. Unfortunately, the arbitrators traditionally compare contracts with those of neighboring municipalities or school districts. Over the years that has basically translated to ever increasing salaries, to the point where police and teachers hereabouts rank among the highest in the country in terms of pay – cops in New York City, for example, top out at half the pay our local cops do, and their jobs are far more demanding. There is nothing wrong with being fairly compensated, and during good times taxpayers were happy to pay. Now, the economy has tanked, schools and municipalities face budget caps, the cost of retirement and health benefits continue to soar, and taxpayers are fed up. Prudent union negotiators would be wise to come to grips with this new reality, and some have. As it stands, though, it would be unfair to excise any job with such short notice. We urge the village, if it decides to go with outside police protection, to phase it in gradually, as officers (and the chief) reach retirement age. If some opt to take early retirement, so be it. We suspect Sag Harbor Village residents really want to keep the current force intact, and we urge the village board to ask the public to sign off on any move to replace the local guys. Put it to a vote, and let the taxpayers decide for themselves if saving a few bucks is worth having strangers police our streets. example of government reform in the State of New York. Bill has set an example of fiscal accomplishments that other municipalities could only hope to achieve. I believe that the full Republican Committee stands by Wilkinson and I find your inclusion of minority, self-serving gossip in a news story to be unnecessary and uncharacteristically gratuitous. DON CIRILLO Editor’s Note: There was no innuendo intended and there is nothing shocking about it. No incumbent is guaranteed a place on the ballot until the committee chooses its candidates. Ask Pete Hammerle and Brad Loewen.

Two Ways Out Dear Mr. Murphy, The Town of East Hampton Fire Marshal’s Office would like to remind everyone that October 7 through 13 is National Fire Prevention Week. The reality is when fire strikes, your home could be engulfed in flames in just

a few minutes. It is important to have a home fire escape plan that prepares your family to think fast and get out quickly when the smoke alarm sounds. What if your first escape route is blocked by smoke or flames? That’s why having two ways out is such a key part of your plan. This year’s theme “Have two ways out” focuses on the importance of fire escape planning and practice. For more information call 631-329-3473. DAVID BROWNE Chief Fire Marshal

staff, and community members – safe and secure. Saturday’s Homecoming was a wonderful day for East Hampton, from the morning celebration for the Bonac Hall of Fame, to the carnival, the afternoon tennis, volleyball, and soccer matches, the bonfire, and the big game where the Bonackers triumphed over Southampton. Thank you again for being such an integral part of it all. RICHARD J. BURNS

Change Needed Dear Editor, I think we can all agree that Albert Einstein was a wise man. One of the more famous sayings attributed to him was describing the definition of insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different result.” With just six weeks until Election Day here Suffolk County, that principle certainly applies to five-term Congressman Tim Bishop and this year’s race for Congress. Bishop has been in Congress for both Republican Presidents and Democratic Presidents, as well as Republicancontrolled Congresses and Democraticcontrolled Congresses. During Rep. Bishop’s nearly 10 years in Washington, the economic and fiscal health of the country has deteriorated, while the popularity ratings of Congress’ have plummeted along with it. On Congressman Bishop’s watch, over 40,000 more Long Islanders have become unemployed according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. On Congressman Bishop’s watch, the national debt has grown from $6 trillion to $16 trillion, and continues to rise with no end in sight. On Congressman Bishop’s watch, the federal government now spends over $1 trillion more than it takes in annually. It’s so bad that during the last three years, Congress hasn’t even bothered to pass a budget. And while middle-class families, seniors and small businesses on Long Island have all struggled mightily, Congressman Bishop has collected a lucrative, taxpayer-funded congressional salary and lined his own pockets at our expense. Embarrassingly, a leading independent watchdog group recently named Congressman Bishop – our Congressman – as 1 of the 12 most corrupt politicians in

JUST ASKING

IN THE NEWS

By Karen Fredericks

What do you hope to get from the Presidential debates that begin this week? Todd Sarris I’m just trying to get the facts. I’m trying to understand what both candidates’ ideas are and what their platforms are. Up until this point they’ve both been doing a horrible job of making their platforms clear. Walter Bobbie I’m looking for a vigorous, intelligent analysis of the issues we face and not just a bunch of sound bites, so one can make a deeply informed vote and not a politicized decision. There is a lot at stake in our country. Nick Morgan I’m English. I don’t have a vote but my wife does. I’ll watch the debates with the hope that I’ll learn a bit more about the candidates and what they plan to do if they get elected. They haven’t been clear up until now, certainly not on their plans for the economy. Eileen White I hope that Mitt Romney stumbles so that the American people can see what a farce he is. And I hope that President Obama comes across as the intelligent, brilliant and classy man that he is.

Washington, while Newsday has called for him to be investigated for an explosive pay-to-play scandal. Does anyone think that things will change if Congressman Bishop is re-elected this November? Does anyone think that career politicians like Congressman Bishop can clean up the mess in Washington that they helped to create? I don’t think so. We need a new direction for Suffolk County, and we need real change in Washington. If you want to change Congress, you need to start by changing your Congressman. With your support, I will take my experience as a self-made businessman to Congress and work with people in both parties to reduce the tax burden on Long Islanders, create goodpaying jobs and get our economy growing again. I urge you to read my specific, 10-point jobs plan at www.Randy2012.com/jobsplan and I respectfully ask for your support on November 6th. RANDY ALTSCHULER

Business Oriented Dear Rick, To investigate why the economy west of the canal might be “less sought after,” it might be of interest to compare horse

farming west and east of the Canal. A businessperson like Randy Altschuler would understand this analysis. An individual involved in real estate west of the Canal filed a special exception “to breed and board horses” on 30 acres. After receiving approval the individual advertised the farm would host a polo club. The Town disallowed the polo club not because polo wasn’t allowed but because the application failed to reflect that usage. Failure to properly describe usage prevents planning board members and neighbors from having a fair opportunity to review and comment on an application. The polo club decided to move to a larger 65-acre parcel east of the Canal and filed an application to “breed and stable horses” and “to play polo.” The Town rejected the polo usage. However, because the application had integrity club members could sue to play polo, they did, and they won. The farm west of the Canal was sold. Therefore it can be concluded that talent west of the Canal is different from east of the Canal. Even though the polo club sought a larger parcel on which to operate, the developer west of the Canal subdivided the 30 acres into a smaller horse farm and a full-scale housing development. This housing development contributed to flooding on the street. CONTINUED ON PAGE 21.

Continued from page 20.

The Highway Department received funding to mitigate the flooding. However, by relying on one study among several conflicting studies, by not analyzing land use in the area, and by not discussing street flooding with property owners, a new recharge basin was built that, because of its location, serves no purpose and really doesn’t completely mitigate flooding. Unfortunately, this eyesore was built right along the horse farm’s only main street frontage. I believe a businessoriented manager would never have spent so much on any project without thorough research. SUSAN CERWINSKI

and church responsibilities of providing for needs. When the civil government hijacks these responsibilities, the identity of such entities are compromised often to the point of irrelevance. Perhaps that explains why there is such an identity crisis today amongst individuals, families and in our churches! Simply put, Mr. Bishop toes the Democratic party line with its damaging and sinful policies. The choice in this election is clear, may the voters in the 1st CD do what is right this Nov. 6th.

Toe The Line Dear Rick, Thank God for pastors like Donald Havrilla of the Southampton Full Gospel Church in Southampton! His letter to the editor hits the nail on the head! Our country’s greatest need in the midst of this spiritual/moral crisis we are in is for repentance and a turn to the Lord. A part of that repentance is to give those elected officials who have declared war against God in their policies, their ‘walking papers.’ Pastor Havrilla is 100 percent correct in calling for Mr. Bishop’s defeat this November 6. Is Mr. Bishop aware that the Bible clearly and repeatedly declares homosexuality a sin? Is Mr. Bishop aware that God-ordained heterosexual marriage is the foundational unit that anchors a society? Does he know that homosexuality was (and still is considered by some) considered a mental illness by the American Psychiatric Assoc. prior to 1973? Does he realize that homosexual conduct (sodomy) was illegal in all 50 states prior to 1960? Does he really want our schools, libraries, public institutions and popular culture to advocate for homosexual conduct and marriage? Furthermore, on what logical basis does the Congressman say no to those who want to legalize marriage between brothers/ sisters, polygamy, and the like? Though I’m shocked he would endorse such evil behavior in a church, this seems to be a pattern with this Congressman. Mr. Bishop supports abortion, even using our tax dollars to perform these murders! He supports taxation plans and ‘welfare’ programs that continue to drive up our national debt, while providing hand-outs for people who in many cases should not be receiving such assistance. The civil government should not be encroaching on individual, family

Babylon, Hampton Bays, Mercy Stay Undefeated By Rick Murphy

After four weeks three teams remain undefeated in Suffolk’s Division IV, and two more have only one loss. Hampton Bays is one of the elite teams. The Baymen took apart archrival Southampton at home Friday night in a game marred by an ugly brawl. The Mariners (1-3) have been reeling since they lost running back Lyle Smith in the first

game – after he had already scored three touchdowns. Southampton offered little resistance to the Bays juggernaut Friday. Taylor Catz opened the scoring with a 58-yard scamper. The Baymen got the ball back and Trey Kennedy promptly reeled off a 27 yard TD run. Catz would score again, on a punt return later in the same stanza. Cody Nolan also scored for the winners, who led 27-0 after the first stanza. When Kennedy reeled off a 67yard run in the second, it was time to call off the dogs. How good was Hampton Bays? Consider the frontline ball handlers gained 253 yards in only nine carries. Kennedy had 96 yards on only three carries. The Baymen are likely to stay undefeated when

they travel to Center Moriches (04) Saturday. Stony Brook plays at Southampton Friday at 7 PM. Mercy, surprisingly, is also 4-0. The Monarchs got by Greenport/ Southold et al (0-4) in a 12-7 nail biter on their home field Saturday. Quarterback Asaiah Wilson scored late in the fourth to seal the deal, but it was the rushing of Reggie Archer who allowed the winners to control the ball – he had 130 yards on 27 carries. Mercy plays at Port Jefferson (1-3) Saturday. The other undefeated team in the division, Babylon, plays at Bayport/ Blue Point Saturday afternoon. Wyandanch comes to Greenport/ Southold Friday night at 7 PM. In Division II action Riverhead improved to 3-1 by crunching Half Hallow Hills 42-9 Saturday.

Through the air, Ryan Blitzer was coolly efficient, completing 8 of 11 for 2 scores, both to Quinn Funn, who finished with 3 on the afternoon. Riverhead plays at East Islip Saturday. Shoreham Wading River came to East Hampton Saturday and routed the locals, 42-14, behind a record shattering performance by star running back Tyler Anderson, who had a game for the ages. Anderson rushed for 328 yards and five touchdowns, and most amazing, did it on only 11 carries. SWR (3-1) plays Glenn (2-2) next week. Sayville came out to Westhampton Beach Saturday and smacked down the locals 35-7 after scoring 21 first quarter points and building a 35-0 lead in the third quarter.

MindedSports By Pete Mundo

Mets Future Causes Confusion The New York Mets season comes to a close today against the Miami Marlins. The fans continue to speak with their wallets, as attendance declined at Citi Field for the third straight season. Even with R.A. Dickey’s quest for 20 wins, which surely boosted attendance, the team sold only 2.2 million tickets. In Citi Field’s inaugural season of 2009, the team drew 3.1 million fans. But with another mediocre display, the novelty of the Jackie Robinson Rotunda and the privilege of buying an overpriced beer in the Caesar’s Club continued to wear off. Reality is, over the past four seasons it’s been incredibly easy for fans to forget about the Mets by late summer/early fall. The return of the NFL, college football and the MLB playoffs (in which the Yankees usually play a prominent role) have made it easy to ignore the Mets and their dismal play. But that’s what management deserves. They haven’t provided fans a product worth investing in, financially or emotionally, after the month of July. Overall revenues are down for the Mets, and after losing $70 million in 2011, another loss is expected this year. So it’s a financial Catch-22 for the organization. They need more money to improve their product, but can’t bring any more money in because fans aren’t showing up. As has been addressed in this space many times before, the likelihood of Mets management ballooning the payroll for 2013 is slim to none. The more likely scenario is keeping the payroll as is, hoping for a break-even year and targeting a return to profitability in 2014. Nearly $60 million of Jason Bay and Johan Santana salaries will be off the books after the 2013 season. A bold management move in the midst of marking time would be to seek offers for David Wright. The Mets hold an option on Wright for the 2013 season. Ownership views Wright as the face of the franchise because he’s the team’s longest tenured player, an All-Star, and a clean-cut guy. But if a package came the Mets way that included players with high ceilings for 2014 and beyond, that would fit the team’s plan, right? I don’t think the Mets would be so bold, because they think

without Wright they have no individual players that fans would come to the ballpark to see. But the fans aren’t coming anyway, the team has turned into chronic underperformers, and the organization is losing money. If ownership honestly views 2013 as a lost cause, then I believe most fans would accept moving on from Wright. He’ll be 31 in 2014, quite possibly in the waning years

www.indyeastend.com

of his career and he’ll command huge dollars. Granted, he’s a homegrown guy who grew up a Mets fan and you just don’t want to give him away. But if another team blows Sandy Alderson away with an attractive offer, he has to pull the trigger. If he doesn’t, then it’s just more mixed signals from an ownership group that can’t figure out left from right. I think most Mets fans thought that David Wright and Jose Reyes would anchor the left side of the Mets infield and be the cornerstones of a winning franchise for years to come. Unfortunately poor decisionmaking torpedoed that dream and with Reyes gone it may be time to part ways with Wright as the franchise enters another era of rebuilding.

The letter of intent calls for the continuation of Southampton Hospital’s clinical services, and the creation of a joint advisory committee, with members appointed by both entities, to advise on strategic and community issues for the facility. As for the new hospital? So far, it’s too early to say how much building a medical facility on the campus would cost. What is known is that Southampton Hospital will have to launch the campaign to raise the dough from private donors. The current hospital has 125 beds and opened in 1909.

Fishing Report

Stripers: They’re Here! Shinnecock Bay/Inlet/Ocean The best bet is to target the striped bass in the inlet on live bait for the drifters or over at the Ponquogue Bridge for the clam chummers. Plenty of fish around both areas. Live eels on the night tides or any other live bait you can get a hold of during the daylight hours will work just fine. Large bluefish are in the inlet as well, biting on whatever you’re throwing or drifting for bass. Cocktail size blues are in the bay following the bait. Plenty of small seabass around with very few legal size coming from the bay. However the larger

seabass are beginning to chew out on the reef and local wrecks, just in time for the blackfish season opener this weekend. Plenty of large porgies on the reef and around the sea buoy.

Peconic Bay And Points East The porgies and snappers continue to dominate the reports from the Robins Island and Jessups areas. Blowfish have been making another good showing mixing in. Some scattered reports of weakfish from the Roses Grove area. Surf/Shore Bound/Canal The inlet is holding a good body

of teen sized striped bass with some 20’s and 30’s mixing in. Most of the better fish have fallen for bucktails on the night tides. Live eels and clams have had their fair share of fish as well. The ocean beaches locally have seen a decent bite on swimmers, poppers and pencils during the early morning and evening tides. Most fish have been just around keeper size with some schoolies in the mix. Cocktail blues have been following the rain bait in the wash.

Coast Guard Auxiliary News By Vincent Pica

Chief of Staff, First District Southern Region, USCG Aux, US Coast Guard Licensed Master

Rescue 21 – Search & Rescue in the 21st Century

In 1787, Alexander Hamilton envisioned, “A few armed vessels, judiciously stationed at the entrances of our ports, might at a small expense be made useful sentinels of our laws.” Fast forward to today and I am sure that Alexander Hamilton would be astonished at the breadth, depth, and intensity of duties carried out by the United States Coast Guard. A major expansion in our ability to conduct the missions and duties established by the Commandant of the United States Coast Guard is through “Rescue 21.” This column is the update on what it is and where it is working.

Rescue 21 – What Is It? R e s c u e 21 i s t h e f i r s t major overhaul of the USCG communications system since the 1970s. Rescue 21 is replacing a wide range of aging, obsolete VHF-FM radio communications equipment:

- Workstations/consoles at about 270 Coast Guard facilities - All remote transceiver sites, as well as the network connecting them to the facilities above - Approximately 3,000 portable radios - Direction finding capability greatly improved to +/- 2 degrees - Communications coverage gaps in existing system greatly reduced Further, it entails several, integrated capabilities: - Direction-finding capability. - Reduction of coverage gaps along the coast. - Enhanced playback capability improving clarity of calls. - Digital archiving of calls. - Increased (and simultaneous) channel monitoring capacity, ensuring all calls get through. Rescue 21 is “standing the watch.”

i m p l e m e n t a t i o n , R e s c u e 21 is operational along the entire Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts of the continental United States as well as along the shores of the Great Lakes, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and the Northern Marianas Islands, covering approximately 41,871 miles of coastline. The system was accepted at Sector Buffalo Aug. 22, 2012.

Rescue 21 – How Does It Work? Well, to start with, here is a list of all the equipment you need to be part of it: - a standard VHF radio - nothing else. If it is a “DSC” radio, which will certainly help, but, bottom line, all you need to be able to call for help and have it responded to in 21st century fashion is a standard VHF radio. Here’s what happens: You send your distress/may-day call. It is automatically recorded and digitized by the station receiving it. Direction finding (DF) equipment from one or more high sites computes the direction from which the signal originated, or line of bearing (LOB). Recall reading about 400’ radio towers being installed at USCG stations in the area? This is why. Your distress audio and the LOB are sent to the closest Ground Center(s). Appropriate resources (planes, helicopters, boats) are dispatched to respond immediately — even across regional boundaries. No turf wars in our surf. You’re in danger. We’re coming. You might say, “Well, direction finding technology has been around for decades. What’s the big deal?”

IN THE NEWS

While true and I’ve used it, this new digital technology is accurate to within +/- 2 degrees. Like a trusty pointer, USCG resources will fly down that Line Of Bearing – and find you. Who knows, with Rescue 21 in place, what the future holds – but greater safety at sea is part of it. Oh, and one other thing that Rescue-21 does well --it quickly triangulates on false may-days, too. From the Jacksonville, NC, Daily News, on March 10, 2010: “A Holly Ridge man has agreed to pay nearly a quarter of a million dollars in restitution for false distress calls he made to the Coast Guard. Jeremy C. Fisher, 25, pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiring to make false distress messages. As part of his plea agreement, Fisher agreed to pay $234,111 restitution to the Coast Guard for all search and rescue costs associated with the hoax calls. “William H. Yates, 22, of Sneads Ferry and Steven G. Medina, 21, of Onslow County, each pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting false distress messages. Medina agreed to pay $233.48, and Yates agreed to pay $506.80 in restitution, according to a press release from U.S. Attorney George E.B. Holding. Fisher faces up to five years in prison followed by up to three years of supervised release. Yates and Medina each face up to six years in prison followed by up to two years’ supervised release.” 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, at DSO-HR and we will help you get in this thing.”
