Harvest Day at Southampton Historical Museum.

By Bridget LeRoy

Think of a harvest fair. You’re probably picturing pumpkins and hay bales, face-painting and apple cider. And you’d be right. But the Southampton Historical Museum has added something extra this year for the “goth” in us all – the reenactment of an 1880s funeral as part of its Southamptonfest celebration on Saturday. “In addition to sheep shearing,

a petting zoo, and 19th-century crafts, we will recreate a Victorian funeral that actually happened in Southampton during the 1880s,” said Tom Edmonds, the executive director of the museum.

“Cordelia Hasley Rogers died at home in the Rogers Mansion in 1887 during the peak of Victorian Era mourning practices,” Edmonds continued. “This reenactment of her funeral, inside her mansion,

Showcasing a simpler time, Southamptonfest offers a variety of activities for folks of all ages.

Starting at 11 AM on Saturday, there will be live music, a blacksmith, Revolutionary War reenactors, tussy mussies, a Colonial camp kitchen, and a decoy carver display, along with wood carving. There will also be a general store shopkeeper educator, a quillwriting activity, carpenter shop tool demonstrations, a carpenter shop activity (building small windmills), a one-room schoolhouse teacher, Colonial games for kids, wool spinners, rug hookers, basket weavers, and more, until 4 PM.

Funeral “mourners” are invited to gather on the great lawn at 1:30 PM, which is free. It’s an additional $20 per person to take part in the funeral reenactment inside the mansion at 2 PM. Edmonds said that the music room in the mansion will be draped in black crepe, with the mirrors and windows covered to expedite the ease of the deceased soul leaving this plane. Also, the clocks will be stopped at the moment of death. The consignment shop will be open (weather permitting) along with a bake sale (while supplies last).

West Nile Creeps Closer He began experiencing symptoms associated with West Nile virus late in August, was subsequently hospitalized, and never recovered. The individual was not known to have any underlying health conditions.

It’s getting too close for comfort.

In addition to a recent East Hampton mosquito sample testing positive for the disease, for the second time in recent weeks an individual from the neighboring Town of Brookhaven has died from West Nile virus.

“I extend my sincere condolences to the individual’s family,” said Dr. Tomarken.

Suffolk County Commissioner of Health Dr. James Tomarken reported as much Friday. He said a Brookhaven resident who died last month had tested positive for West Nile virus.

New York State has also confirmed West Nile virus in a person under the age of 50 who resides in the Town of Babylon. The individual became ill with symptoms consistent with West Nile virus in mid-September, was subsequently

hospitalized, and is presently recovering at home.

To date this year, Suffolk County has reported two deaths associated with West Nile virus in Suffolk County among a total of six confirmed cases. Of the six cases, two resided in the Town of Brookhaven, two in the Town of Smithtown, one in the Town of Islip, and one in the Town of Babylon. The number of human cases of West Nile virus varies each year. Suffolk County reported five human cases of West Nile virus in both 2015 and 2016, one case

in 2014, and four cases in both 2011 and 2013. Comparatively, the county reported 14 human cases in 2012 and 25 in 2010, the year in which the virus claimed three lives. Prior to 2010, the virus claimed two lives in Suffolk County in both 2002 and 2003.

West Nile virus, first detected in birds and mosquito samples in Suffolk County in 1999 and again each year thereafter, is transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito. The Department of Health Services, in an effort to obtain a more accurate picture of Continued On Page 48.

Jerry’s Ink

by Jerry Della Femina

SOMETHING I THINK YOU’LL LIKE & SOMETHING I KNOW YOU’LL HATE Let’s start with the National Football League and all those people who are bent out of shape because some players refuse to stand when they play the National Anthem at the beginning of the game and instead go down on one knee in protest.

It started with Colin Kaepernick and then, of course, President Buttinsky Trump took over and declared that any player who didn’t honor the flag should be skinned alive, or something like that.

And the next thing you know there were more people on their knees than in the Oval Office during the heyday of the Bill Clinton White House years.

Here’s my answer. The players have a perfect right to protest and not salute the flag during the playing of the National Anthem. It’s their right as Americans. A lot of good men and women fought and died in wars to give them that right. The players have a right to refuse to salute the flag, but the National Football League doesn’t have any obligation to show them protesting. It’s no longer a news story. They have made their point. So why don’t we ask the television stations who are covering football games to stop showing the protest and to instead train their cameras on the scoreboard, where each team in every city will show scenes of the

I’m offering my services and would love to put that film together free of charge. Let every team’s scoreboard feature the great Ray Charles singing “America the Beautiful” while showing historical scenes of Americans honoring the flag.

Let’s have peace between those who love and those who don’t love our flag. WEINER’S WEINER In Los Angles, in 1963, there was a sign next to a West Hollywood comedy club that read, “This is where they busted Lenny Bruce for talking.” Talking?

Yes, there was a time in the United States when, if you used language in a nightclub act that some people thought was obscene, they arrested you and fined you and you spent a few days in jail. It was a scary time.

I thought about that sign when I read about Anthony Weiner recently being sentenced to 21 months in a federal prison.

He is a creepy pervert. I wish him nothing but a life in hell for all the damage he’s done to himself and his family and others. That being said, I’m now going to say something that will anger most of the readers of this column.

Anthony Weiner never should have been sentenced by a federal judge to 21 months in jail for sex-texting with a 15-year-old girl.

At no time in this “relationship” was he within a hundred miles of her. Visit Us  at

The 15-year-old girl initially contacted Weiner through a direct message on Twitter in January 2016. Weiner and the girl continued to communicate on social media sites, including Facebook Messenger, Skype, Kik, Confide, and Snapchat. Yes, Anthony Weiner did much worse than just talk. He exposed himself on the internet to this young girl, and to scores of women of all ages. But he never came within miles of all the women to whom he was sending pictures of his pathetic penis.

Creeps like Weiner use the internet because they’re afraid of women.

Creeps like Weiner wind up killing themselves because they cannot face life. But this was an excessive sentence. And, more important, why is the federal government involved?

I would have convicted Weiner of a misdemeanor in New York City and sent him away for 60 days to Rikers Island, where he would go without a shower because of his fear that a 300-pound thug named “Tiny” was waiting to sexually assault him in the shower. But not the federal government. Never the federal government.

I’m convinced that this is a slippery slope.

We start with perverts like Weiner, and next we start sending people to jail because they spoke out against government officials on the internet. A federal jail?

Hitler started by arresting gypsies because everyone in Germany hated them the way we hate flashers like Weiner. Hitler didn’t stop there. He was the government and he made all the rules. You may not agree with me, but did you see Donald Trump making jokes and throwing packages of Bounty paper towels to starving Puerto Ricans the other day?

East Hampton Debuts Fall Festival

By Nicole Teitler

Fall is synonymous with festivals here on the East End and all across Long Island. Well, it’s time to add another one to the list. Sweaters on and apple cider in hand, get ready.

The East Hampton Chamber of Commerce is eager to host its first annual East Hampton Village Fall Festival on October 21. The tremendously popular Street Fair that was held in the spring returns in spirit and location, just a different season, in Herrick Park between 10 AM through 5 PM. Approximately 40 purveyors or local artists and shopkeepers will be set up in the downtown park area in addition to 20 non-profits.

From bluegrass to blues, live music will be playing all day in addition to a live mural painting project – partake as supplies will be provided. Got kids? Take them to Kidzone where there will be hand-on science projects and art works courtesy of the Children’s Museum of the East End in the gazebo. Further, hop around in the jumping house, get some height with a climbing wall, and enjoy games and surprises. The fun continues with MagicSteve and his performance of wizardry. Robin Lynch will be flying around with the greatest of ease as he performs on an aerial trapeze.

GALLERY

Since the date falls the weekend before Halloween is celebrated, the community will also be treated to a pumpkin carving contest and costume parade.

DiscoverLI is the official sponsor of the event. If you’d like to secure a booth of your own, contact the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce at 631-324-0362 or via email steven@easthamptonchamber.com You can follow more stories from Nicole Teitler on Facebook and Instagram @Nikki on the Daily.

WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY ALL THINKING? What the hell were they thinking? Reading the news these days I often find myself shouting, “WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING?” What I really say is better represented by the cyber acronym: WTF? But in a family newspaper, I’ll stick to WTH?

WTH were Richard Bivona, reportedly the owner of Princess Diner in Water Mill, and manager John Kalogeras thinking before they were charged last month by State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman with stiffing 13 workers -- cooks, dishwashers, busboys, servers for some $87,000

in pay? If true, WTH were these two thinking, that diner workers were just gonna eat their losses?

WTH was Anthony Pastor, Manhattan corporate lawyer, thinking when he savagely beat his girlfriend’s poodle, Snoopy, for peeing on the floor, as alleged? And WTH was he thinking as Snoopy lay wailing in an agonizing death rattle as the big shot barrister returned to his computer to finish working on a case? WTH kind of human being can work as a little abused animal whimpers to death? This two-legged mutt Pastor had his law license lifted and was sentenced to two years in prison

where people like him often learn what it’s like to be somebody’s, um, bitch. WTH was staunch anti-abortion Republican Congressman Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania thinking when it was revealed that he urged his pregnant mistress in a series of texts to get an abortion? Murphy aborted his own career instead last Thursday by tendering his resignation.

And WTH was Erin Macke, 32, of Iowa thinking when she allegedly left her four kids under age 12 home alone with a loaded handgun for protection as she flew off to Germany for 11 days to visit her brother? Authorities ordered Macke to return home where she was arrested. WTH, Mom? Same question for two Boynton Beach, Florida moms -- Kristen Leigh O’Connor, 28, and June Schweinhart, 29 -- allegedly found overdosed on heroin but alive in a car with two infants in the back seat.

2017

When I read about Wopat I just finished shouting “WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?” at a story about Denver radio DJ David Mueller, accused by Taylor Swift and convicted in civil court of grabbing her butt during a radio station photo op. WTH, dudes? This is simple: Unless a woman says it’s okay, it’s never okay to grab her behind. Or anywhere else. I mean, WTH? Sometimes these WTH stories are straight from Hell.

In July, Suffolk County Police Officer Christopher McCoy, 38, arrested a woman driver, 31, for traffic warrants. Then in a First Precinct interrogation room, McCoy allegedly forced the woman to perform oral sex on him. Wait, WTH? Yup, that’s what authorities claim. And cops say McCoy left DNA evidence on her clothing. The next day McCoy allegedly started texting the woman, looking for another hook up. WTH? So, she reported him. McCoy was arrested.

Unless a woman says it’s okay, it’s never okay to grab her behind.

WTH was Marcus Johnson, 27, a teacher’s assistant at Bay Shore High School, thinking when he allegedly had sex with a female student of 14? Is it me or has there been a recent rash of male and female teachers charged with statutorily raping students from sea to shining sea? WTH?

WTH was “The Dukes of Hazzard” actor Tom Wopat, 66, thinking up in Boston while rehearsing the musical 42nd Street, when he allegedly grabbed and fondled a 16-year-old female cast member’s butt? After his arrest for felony indecent assault cops discovered cocaine on Wopat. If true, what the hell kinda way was this bum dragged up? WTH?

“This is disgusting. This is rape,” Suffolk Police Commissioner Tim Sini said. If these charges are proven in court, WTH was McCoy thinking when he raped, degraded, and then pursued this poor woman? WTH is he thinking now as he faces 20 years in the slammer? Another story from the subbasement of Hell involves Fox TV anchor Eric Bolling, fired for allegedly sending penis pics to female newsroom staffers. If true, WTH was he thinking with his big head? Because the story did not end with the lawsuit, the job termination, and the public shame. The coda that will probably never go away was Bolling’s college sophomore son dying of a drug overdose the night his dad was fired. That must be Hell on Earth.

New York State Assemblyman Fred Thiele announced Thursday his partnership with Long Island Cares and New York State in holding a food drive for Puerto Rico.

Governor Cuomo launched the Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort for Puerto

The public can help by donating non-perishable food items or supplies and placing them in the food drive box at Thiele’s office located at 2302 Main Street, Suite A in Bridgehampton. Supplies needed include cleaning materials, such as garbage bags and latex gloves, as well as personal care products, such as shampoo/ soap, feminine hygiene products, toothbrushes/toothpaste, and toilet paper. Other miscellaneous items include flashlights, batteries, and mosquito repellent.

Thiele is also hosting an online drive through YouGiveGoods at www.yougivegoods.com/thiele. Click on the “Shop Now” button to purchase the most-needed items to date.

All donated goods are delivered to Long Island Cares where volunteers organize, pack, and send everything to the central donation center at the NYS office building in Hauppauge. The state ships the donations to Puerto Rico.

Energy Efficiency Day

PSEG Long Island celebrated National Energy Efficiency Day on October 5 by releasing an extensive layout of energy efficiency projects as well as their possible impacts. ENERGY STAR certified washers, dryers, air conditioning systems, LED bulbs, and many other energy-saving products have been shown to save the users thousands of dollars in less than a year. Since energy costs directly affect the US economy, PSEG is encouraging everyone to make a conscious effort to reduce their overall energy consumption.

Changes in our lifestyles have led to more electronics choices available at home – smartphones, tablets, e-readers, HDTVs, and more – that were not common 10 years ago. One can enjoy these conveniences and still save energy and money. When shopping for a high definition TV (HDTV), a liquid crystal display (LCD) model can cut TV power usage by approximately 50 percent compared to a plasma screen model. We are in the computer age. But each new gadget purchased feeds off electric power. It’s important that consumers learn to utilize equipment while at the same time conserving power. One idea -- plug battery charging devices or power adaptors into a power strip that can easily be shut off with the toggle switch. Turn off electronics such as personal computers, monitors, copiers, printers, and fax machines when they are not in use.

Many appliances and electronics burn power when they are switched off and still plugged in. This is referred to as “phantom load” or “stand-by power.” These phantom loads occur in VCRs, televisions, stereos, computers, and kitchen appliances. In the average home, 75 percent of the electricity used to power home electronics is consumed while the products are turned off. Avoid phantom load by simply unplugging the item when not in use. Like other appliances that heat and cool, refrigerators and freezers

are big energy users and have to be “on” all the time. A new refrigerator with an ENERGY STAR®-label is at least 20 percent more efficient than new conventional models and 40 percent more efficient than an older conventional model sold in 2001. Make sure the seals on your refrigerator and freezer fit tightly. Remember clotheslines? Some communities have actually banned them, thinking them unsightly. But no one can argue with the

efficiency. If you’re in the market for a new clothes dryer, consider purchasing one with a “moisture sensing” device that shuts off automatically when the clothes are dry.

Washing laundry has come a long way from the old tub and washboards our forefathers used – and the costs have soared. Ninety percent of the energy a washer uses goes toward heating the water. Save by using hot water only for

very soiled laundry, especially since today’s detergents are formulated to work just as well in cold water. Unlike doing laundry, washing dishes by hand may not save energy or money. In fact, consumers can probably save energy using the dishwasher when full since handwashing usually requires more hot water. When it comes to cooking, a

East End Cares For Team Rubicon

By Nicole Teitler

On Sunday, East End Cares will combine efforts with Team Rubicon at Solé East Resort in Montauk to raise disaster response money for areas throughout the United States and Caribbean.

Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams. Since Hurricane Harvey, Team Rubicon has placed over 800 volunteers in Texas, with 148 remotely supporting from its national operations center in Dallas. Additional help remains in Florida following the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, with over 75 volunteers deployed.

Town Tries Another Tact To Limit Noise

By Rick Murphy

Having failed to get relief from the courts or through Congressional action, the East Hampton Town Board voted Thursday to address the issue of excess airport noise through the last remaining venue.

The town will petition the Federal Aviation Administration for relief, contending the noise emanating from operations at the East Hampton Town Airport is a public nuisance.

At the meeting all four of the board members present voted to authorize the application to the FAA. Councilman Fred Overton was not present but offered a guarded endorsement of the move. At issue is the ultimate closure of the airport. Overton expressed concern that the possibility existed and warned it would be harmful to the town. Outgoing Town Supervisor Larry Cantwell said such a scenario is possible if the town exhausts all other options to quell the noise.

Local legislation limiting air traffic and imposing curfews did not stand up in court. On June 26, the US Supreme Court refused to review an appellate court ruling that invalidated restrictions on latenight and early-morning flights. The noise, most noticeably from the hum of helicopters streaming in during summer weekends, is worse than ever, town officials said. The board’s application to the FAA, called a Part-161, is time consuming – up to seven years – and will cost a lot of money, perhaps more than $2 million. Board members and a town attorney, Michael Sendlenski, are confident the cost will be absorbed by funds generated at the airport, but some critics say there is a possibility the town will have to take the money from its general fund. In theory airport money should be used for airport expenses, according to FAA regulations.

Independent / Rick Murphy East Hampton Town is embarking on a tedious and costly path it hopes will ultimately lead to quieter skies.

At issue now is how far-reaching the noise complaints are. Before embarking on noise restrictions measures back in 2014, the town made a point of gathering airport critics from the entire East End – literally calling neighboring town officials urging them to attend a meeting – in what turned into an airport bash-fest at LTV.

The town will have to prove to the FAA that a significant part of the population is adversely affected by the noise.

Toward that end, the town announced with some fanfare that noise complaints are up 133 percent this year. But critics said the claim will never stand up. In past years, the town was able to identify those who complained about airport use. Statistics showed a couple of dozen complainers were responsible for the great majority of complaints. “It’s the same 30 people

complaining over and over again,” said Manny Vilar, a Republican running for East Hampton Town Supervisor.

This year the town has another, easier way to lodge a noise complaint, AirNoiseReport, simply by going online and clicking on a plane icon as it flies overhead. But it doesn’t identify who is lodging the complaints. “You can click on it over and over again,” Vilar said. Jerry Larsen, a Republican candidate for the town board, said some of the funds the town has expended for legal fees thus far might have to be paid back to the airport. There is also the chance

Part-161 legal costs will face the same fate though Sendlenski said other municipalities that have gone down the same road used airport funds successfully. “They talk about transparency. This has never been disclosed,” Larsen said. Instead, the town has asked its congressmen, first Tim Bishop and now Lee Zeldin, to sponsor legislation that would allow the town to limit air traffic. “They secretly tried to slip legislation through to get an exemption,” Larsen charged.

The law firm Morrison Foerster will handle the FAA application and the town will also hire a consultant to gather input from the community.

Trump Tax Reform Questioned In Albany

By Rick Murphy

State Assemblyman Fred Thiele joined a chorus of New York State elected officials this week criticizing a tax reform package proposed by President Donald Trump. A major sticking point is Trump’s call to eliminate the deduction for state and local taxes, which some critics contend will amount to double taxation.

“Let’s make it clear at the outset, state and local tax deductibility has been part of the current IRS Code since the inception of the modern income tax in 1913,” Thiele said. “For more than 100 years, Congress has recognized that a federal tax on the amount of state and local taxes is nothing more than unfair double taxation on working Americans and a federal invasion of state sovereignty.” Trump’s proposal to eliminate the state tax deduction is one of many that would balance out massive tax cuts. Though critics predictably argue that the rich and giant corporations will benefit most, on paper the cuts are across the board. Individuals who earn under $25,000, or married couples who earn up to $50,000 would pay no federal income tax. There would only be four rates: zero, 10, 20, and 25 percent, escalating according to income earned. Businesses taxes would be capped at 15 percent.

But Thiele said net taxes paid by most individuals would probably go up. “This proposed tax hike affects all New Yorkers who itemize their deductions. For those making less than $50,000, the average increase would be $423. For those with incomes between $50,000 and $100,000, the tax increase would be

almost $1300. On average, across all income levels, the average tax increase would be nearly $5300 per taxpayer.” For Long Islanders, 943,959 taxpayers would pay an additional $4.3 billion dollars in federal income tax, more than $4500 per taxpayer.

Eliminating the state and local tax deduction would raise about one-quarter of the $4 trillion in revenues that some Republicans say they need to prevent tax cuts from creating a massive increase in the federal budget deficit. Independent / Courtesy NYS

A Mistake? In addition to cutting tax deductions Trump proposed a number of other measures to pay for the tax cuts.

The plan contains up to $6 trillion in tax cuts, according to independent analysts, which Trump and top Republicans say they would offset by eliminating loopholes, deductions, and tax breaks and boosting annual economic growth, CNN reported. Trump said the “repatriation of overseas cash” would amount to billions of dollars of revenue.

Warren Buffett – CEO of Berkshire Hathaway and one of the most successful investors in the world – said a proposal to repeal the estate tax would be “a terrible mistake” that would benefit the wealthiest Americans unnecessarily. “I don’t believe we’re going to get tax reform if there is the elimination of deductibility of state and local taxes,” he said. Under Trump’s tax reform package the death tax would be eliminated entirely.

According to the Rockefeller Institute of Government, New York already sends $48 billion more in taxes to Washington than it gets back in services. This negative balance of payments would be further exacerbated by the elimination of the state and local tax deduction. Thiele said he is concerned about the impact this tax proposal will have on small business owners across Long Island and

State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said the state sends more money to Washington than it receives.

New York State, many of whom pay taxes on their business through their personal income tax.

“There can be no doubt that this proposal will cost New York State jobs and will make New York less competitive as it attempts to attract new business, such as Amazon, to the state,” he added.

New York State received 84 cents for every dollar it sent in taxes to the federal government in 2016, a wider gap than three years before, according to a report released today by State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli. New Yorkers Pay “New York sent an estimated $40.9 billion more in tax payments to Washington in 2016 than it received back in federal spending,” DiNapoli said. “While the Empire State fares well in some areas, in total it receives significantly less per tax dollar than the vast majority of states. Federal decision makers should consider this imbalance as they debate proposed budget and policy changes that could significantly impact New York and other states.”

Spending in New York during federal fiscal year 2016 included $55 billion in Social Security payments, $47 billion for Medicare, and more than $46 billion for Medicaid and other safety net grants. Billions of federal dollars

also supported transportation, education, and veterans’ benefits programs. Meanwhile, New Yorkers paid almost $255 billion in taxes to the federal government. While New York received 16 cents less per dollar contributed, most states received more than they paid. The average return for all states was $1.18 cents per tax dollar sent to Washington. In 2016, the federal government spent more than $3.8 trillion and brought in approximately $3.3 trillion, with a budget deficit of $585 billion. New York generated 8.3 percent of federal tax payments, while the state represented 6.1 percent of the nation’s population in 2016, according to figure provide by DiNapoli. Analysts at the Tax Policy Center claim that nearly three-quarters of the savings from the tax overhaul would go to the top 20 percent of earners – those making more than $149,000. More than half the savings would go to the top 1 percent – people who earn more than $732,800.

President Trump disagreed. He said his proposed tax cuts “will benefit the middle class” and the rich “will not be gaining at all” with his plan. “I think the wealthy will be pretty much where they are,” he added. “If we can do that, we’ll like it. If they have to go higher, they’ll go higher, frankly.”

USGA: It’s Temporary

By Rick Murphy

Shinnecock Hills Golf Club officials wanted to close a portion of Tuckahoe Road permanently and replace it with two roads. One would detour traffic from the golf course east to St. Andrews Road and run parallel to the railroad tracks. The other would go from St. Andrews north and reconnect to Tuckahoe Road east of the golf course. It would entail opening a paper road, Montrose Road, that lies between the Shinnecock golf course and the National Golf Links of America course. The plan found little support after it was broached last year and has been shelved, at least until recently. Last week, as reported exclusively in The Independent, the Club submitted a similar road closure plan to the United States Golf Association, to be used during the upcoming US Open in June 2018. This time the Club asked the USGA to pay for the bypass; last

year it offered to bear all the costs.

Tom Neely, the Southampton Town director of public transportation and traffic safety, sent a letter to the Town Highway Department referencing earlier communications between his office and two USGA officials, Charlie Howe and Timothy Lloyd. Howe said this week he was aware of the controversy surrounding the Club’s proposal to permanently close a portion of Tuckahoe Road.

“The Club’s proposal was and is completely separate from ours, being that our proposal is for temporary roadways to provide the USGA the ability to logistically conduct the championship,” Howe told this newspaper. “After the championship, we would be returning the property to its current state.”

Shinnecock is scheduled to host the US Open again in 2026.

Fleming All In On Sini

By Rick Murphy

Suffolk County Legislator Bridget Fleming announced this week she is endorsing Tim Sini for District Attorney, saying Sini will bring “honesty, integrity, and a strong law enforcement track record” to the office. “As a former criminal prosecutor and now a legislator determined to reform the ethical environment in Suffolk County, I strongly endorse Tim Sini for District Attorney,” said Fleming. “Tim’s success as police commissioner and, prior to that, as a federal prosecutor, make him the clear choice.”

Sini also announced his full support for legislation written by Fleming, and signed by County Executive Steve Bellone, which mandates that financial disclosure forms filed by top county officials be fully available to the public. The legislation (Resolution 2312017) established clear guidelines

to ensure public access to disclosure statements that may unearth conflicts of interest by public officials. As chair of the Ways and Means committee, Fleming proposed the bill following the denial, by the Suffolk County Ethics Board, of a Freedom of Information request by Newsday for financial disclosure statements filed by a bureau chief in the Suffolk County DA’s Office. The newspaper had sought the statements in connection with a story investigating allegations that the bureau chief had a rented a party boat to members of the Defense Bar. The prosecutor then filed a legal action challenging disclosure of the statements.

“It is imperative to have a District Attorney’s office with impeccable integrity,” Sini said. “Legislator Fleming’s legislation is common sense, good-government reform.

Vineyard 48 Shuttered It must have been some kind of a party place.

In fact, many bloggers said as much in the wake of the closure of Vineyard 48 in Cutchogue. But authorities didn’t think it was such a happy place. In fact, agents from the State Liquor Authority shut the party palace down last week.

“Vineyard 48 has amassed a disturbing record of repeatedly serving patrons far beyond the point of extreme intoxication, straining police resources, and wreaking havoc on their neighbors and the surrounding community,” Christopher R. Riano of the SLA said in the news release. The establishment, at 18910 County Road 48, has been subject to dozens of complaints, many from neighbors who complained

about the noise and the excesses, including “rowdy sex parties” and fighting.

Some 400 customers reportedly had defecated and urinated on neighboring homeowners’ premises due to long lines at the restrooms. The SLA ordered the suspension of alcohol sales and consumption at Vineyard 48. A spokesman for the hotspot said the allegations were unfounded and the Vineyard 48 expected to reopen shortly. The vineyard has a right to appeal the suspension.

Government Briefs

Compiled by Rick Murphy Zeldin Supports Immigration Act Amendment

Congressman Lee Zeldin said he supports a measure that would clamp down on illegal immigrants who are gang members. The Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to detain and remove illegal aliens who participate in criminal gang activity, and bar gang members from coming to the United States.

The bill also prevents criminal alien gang members from eligibility for immigration benefits, such as asylum, special immigrant juvenile status, and temporary protected status. Additionally, it also provides local law enforcement with the resources they need to deport illegal alien gang members. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement has found that members of violent transnational gangs are comprised largely of foreign-born nationals.  “I proudly cosponsored and supported [the Act] to combat

gang violence by illegal aliens and protect our local communities. This bill closes the dangerous loopholes that currently exist in immigration law, by adding stronger vetting standards to block anyone who may be suspected of gang activity from entering the United States, expediting and prioritizing their removal if they are arrested for being in the country illegally or commit a gang-related crime,” Zeldin said. The congressman also said the bill would bar temporary protective status and other other immigration statuses to anyone suspected of gang activity. “The rise in gang violence is hitting home in the most personal and tragic way in

Suffolk County, where we’ve seen ongoing violence perpetrated by MS-13 and other Central American gangs,” Zeldin said.

In April four young men were murdered by MS-13. Two of the victims, Justin Llivicura of East Patchogue and Jorge Tigre of Bellport, were residents of the first congressional district.

“These young men were senselessly and brutally murdered by MS-13 gang members using machetes. There have been so many other horrible crimes committed by MS-13 gang members that have included gang rape, human trafficking, drug trafficking, and more,” Zeldin pointed out. “In Congress, I will continue to support legislation to reform our broken immigration system and keep illegal gang activity off our streets to make our neighborhoods safer and improve our quality of life,” he added. Montauk Highway Paving State Assemblyman Fred Thiele reported that he has been informed by the NYS Department of Transportation that a portion of Montauk Highway in Southampton will be repaved in October 2018. The approximately three-mile segment of road between Knoll Road and Tuckahoe Lane is scheduled to be resurfaced.

“I am pleased that another vital portion of our state highway infrastructure on the East End will be revitalized this fall. In the past few years, we have seen Route 27 from Southampton to Montauk repaved, as well as Route 24 between Flanders and Hampton Bays, and a portion of Route 114 in East Hampton,” Thiele said.

Musings With Judy Carmichael

private recitals for everyone from Rod Stewart and Robert Redford to President Clinton and Gianni Agnelli.

Judy Carmichael, one of the world’s greatest living jazz pianists, will be bringing “Sexy Songs and Lovely Laments” to Sag Harbor’s Bay Street Theater on Saturday. This is not her first rodeo – in fact, Carmichael was the first musical performer at Bay Street when it opened in the early ‘90s.

The Rod Stewart concert came about after he heard the Californiaborn Carmichael playing one of her first gigs, banging out old-timey music on Main Street, USA, at Disneyland. According to Carmichael, the “Tonight Show Band” was playing in one room for Stewart’s guests, but she played exclusively for him and a few friends in a separate room.

But this time, Carmichael will be using a different instrument in addition to the piano – her voice.

“Singing is still relatively new to me,” Carmichael said over coffee in Sag Harbor last week. “I’ll never have a big voice, but my voice got healthier in the last few years.” So what’s her secret? “I’ve been an instrumentalist for all these years and I think that was crucial. A lot of the great jazz singers were also instrumentalists – Sarah Vaughan played piano, her first gig was with Earl Hines. Ella Fitzgerald was a great harmonica player, not a lot of people know that.

“And I’m also a storyteller.” She recalled interviewing EL Doctorow years ago, and how much he admired lyricists. “He said a song was the ultimate short story,” Carmichael said. “I’ll never forget that. I approach the songs as telling the story, being that character. And I realized, when I was writing the songs for my latest CD, that I was looking at them as short stories.”

Carmichael was referring to her Can You Love Once More?, on which she wrote the lyrics, and Harry Allen wrote the music. “It’s my first CD of all originals,” she said. The songs range from amusing Noel Coward-like ditties to deeply emotional turns that will resonate

with audience members.

In addition to originals on Saturday, Carmichael will perform the old familiar tunes which allow her to live up to her nickname, “Stride,” a style of jazzy piano-playing where the left hand walks, or strides, over the lower keys. She will be accompanied by Allen on tenor sax, Chris Flory on guitar, and Neal Minor on bass. Carmichael appears frequently on radio and TV throughout the world and maintains a busy international touring schedule, although she still calls Sag Harbor home. She is popular with both jazz and cabaret audiences with her soulful, swinging interpretations

of the Great American Songbook, and equally impressive hilarious, improvisational anecdotes.

Her wit and musical knowledge come together on her weekly NPR radio broadcast/podcast, “Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired,” now in its 18th year, where she talks with celebrated creative artists about their love for jazz and how it inspires them -- everyone from Seth MacFarlane and Jools Holland to Tony Bennett and Billy Joel. In addition, she has done comic skits and performed her music on radio and TV around the world, including the “Prairie Home Companion.” She has performed

Carmichael loves playing in different venues. “I love playing in theaters,” she said. “I mean I love concert halls, but I love the atmosphere of theaters. I love atmosphere, period. I’ve played in a palazzo in Rome – that was one of my favorites. I’ve played in the sculpture garden of the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice, the only time they ever held a concert there. They brought the Steinway Grand over on a barge. It was wonderful!”

However, one of her most surreal experiences took place in England. “You know I love it there,” she said. “But this was strange. I was brought way out into the hills – my friends from London were asking, ‘Are you sure this is it?’ Then we saw a little sign that said ‘Judy Carmichael Concert’ with an arrow pointing down a dirt road. “It was a barn that had been converted into a theater, with the sides off. And the people were all dressed up, having their picnic, as the English do so well. Some people even arrived on horses. But

Ties & Tails, a cocktail party with a Jazz Era theme, was held on Saturday at the Rogers Mansion in Southampton. Guests enjoyed decor and music from the 1920s and ’30s, as well as an open bar with hors d’oeuvres in the period rooms of the mansion developed during Southampton’s Gilded Age. The mansion is managed by the Southampton Historical Museum, which shared proceeds with the Southampton Animal Shelter, Southampton Village Fire Department, Southampton Village Ambulatory Corps, and SYS’s Stages Children Theatre Group.

On January 16, the world lost 17-year-old Matthew L. Lester, but his dream lives on. On October 1, those who attended the East Hampton Historical Farm Museum’s outdoor community dinner on the Lester Homestead grounds, had the opportunity to share Matthew’s passion for bees and clear vision for his Pollinator Garden. The “Matthew Lester Memorial Garden” is located exactly where he had planned, and carried out by his fellow Boy Scouts of Troop 298 and other volunteers. Prudence and Brian Carabine of the museum were gracious hosts.

The Moth Writers Speak

Tara Clancy and Catherine Burns.

By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

The Writers Speak Wednesdays series continues with The Moth’s artistic director Catherine Burns and host/storyteller Tara Clancy on Wednesday, October 18, at 7 PM, at Stony Brook Southampton. The series includes free author talks,

readings, and conversations that are open to the public.

This special Writers Speak program is dedicated to The Moth. Since its launch in the mid-’90s, The Moth has presented over 18,000 true stories, told live without notes. Each Moth show explores a theme.

Condo? Co-Op? Rental? To you it’s simply “Home.”

It’s renowned for showcasing a range of human experience through the authentic voices of its contributors.

Founded by the poet and novelist George Dawes Green, The Moth has presented to sold-out crowds worldwide and currently presents over 500 live shows each year. The Moth was founded in 1997, and named by Green, who wanted his storytelling tales to recreate the feeling of summer evenings on the porch in his native Georgia, where he and his friends would gather to spin yarns.

Living in Brooklyn with her husband and son, Burns is The Moth’s longtime artistic director. She is a frequent host and producer of the Peabody Award-winning “The Moth Radio Hour,” and the editor of both Moth story collections. She is the director of Edgar Oliver’s solo show “Helen & Edgar,” as well as Adam Gopnik’s “The Gates.”

Joseph Haines 631-537-3540

Clancy’s writing has appeared in The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, The Nation, and The Paris Review Daily. She is a frequent host of The Moth Mainstage live shows, a Moth GrandSLAM winner, and has told stories on “The Moth Radio Hour,” NPR’s “Snap Judgment,” “The Story Collider” and “Risk!” Her memoir, The Clancys of Queens, was published by Crown in 2016. The evening will be preceded by an open house and informational session at 5:30 PM for prospective MFA in Creative Writing candidates as well as writers interested in the Children’s Literature Fellows program.

All programs are held in the Radio Lounge on the second floor of Chancellors Hall at Stony Brook Southampton. Those interested in attending are asked to email rsvp_ mfa@stonybrook.edu. For more info visit www.stonybrook.edu/mfa.

Literature Live Matching Challenge Grant these groups will match donations dollar for dollar up to $100,000. Funds raised from this challenge will be used to support the Literature Live! program, which provides free student tickets to over 3000 students from across Long Island. This initiative ensures that all students, regardless of economic and social circumstances, can experience a fully staged, professional production of a work of classic literature, like this year’s Death of a Salesman.

To date more than 56 schools and over 12,000 students have taken part in this program. Many of the children had never experienced live theater before coming to Bay Street.

Death of a Salesman is considered to be one of the greatest plays of the 20th century. The Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play was written in 1949. Set in the late 1940s, Death of a Salesman follows Willy Loman, a failing salesman,

and his family as they face the harsh reality of their lives that they have been denying. Miller explores themes surrounding the uncertainty of the American dream and the struggles that families face in the wake of a changing economy, both of which are as relevant today as when the play was written. Public performances start Saturday, November 9. Tickets are available online at www.baystreet.org, or by calling the Box Office at 631-7259500.

Larger Than Life: The Kevyn Aucoin Story The world premiere of the documentary Larger Than Life: The Kevyn Aucoin Story, by director Tiffany Bartok, took place at the Hamptons International Film Festival on Saturday in East Hampton. Following the premiere, I headed to a reception hosted by Kevyn Aucoin Beauty at Serafina in East Hampton. The film explores the life of iconic makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin, who transformed the profession into a prominent and influential art form. Bartok paints a portrait of a man who, as both an artist and LGBTQ advocate, dedicated his life to elevating the inner confidence of

others.

The film shows archival footage and one-on-one interviews with Aucoin’s family, lifelong friends, and colleagues. Carol Alt, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Kate Moss, Paulina Porizkova, Brooke Shields, Christy Turlington Burns, Veronica Webb, and Cher reveal words about Aucoin as they recount their friendships. The film has received rave reviews. “This documentary is the perfect homage to such an amazing man,” said model Kate Moss. “It shows a side of Kevyn I never knew about. It shows the whole man and makes me love him even more.”

Stills from the film Larger Than Life: The Kevyn Aucoin Story.

Light A Candle For Puerto Rico

Social media is a powerful way to spread a message. It’s also a way to connect with like-minded individuals. Follow a page, like a post, message a company. This concept is exactly how I came across the latest altruistic endeavor from local company Hamptons Hand Poured.

I would love to have more of my retail partners carry the candle. They would have to be willing to not make a profit on the product or at the least only take a small percentage of the sale so we can donate the most we can for Puerto Rico,” Torres detailed.

Then an Instagram post showed the latest scent, Coastal Evacuation Route – a $28 sea salt blend with notes of citrus and violet with all of the proceeds going directly to the relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

“That it was going to take four to six months to fully restore power [in Puerto Rico] was shocking to me,” Hamptons Hand Poured owner Brittany Torres expressed. “On the first day I posted the candle, we raised just under $300. For a small business with little marketing and a product under $30, I think that’s not bad. My ultimate

Chef, Farmer, Winemaker Dinner

By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

“At the heart of the 1770 House are our owners, Ben and Bonnie Krupinski, who go to great lengths every day to keep one of East Hampton’s oldest homes in tiptop condition,” Rozzi continued. “At the front of the house, our servers and innkeeper work hard to make it easy for our guests to enjoy themselves. I also want to thank those working in my kitchen and those we rely on for the best ingredients -- our purveyors, farmers, and winemakers.”

Chef Michael Rozzi and wine director Michael Cohen of the 1770 House Restaurant & Inn in East Hampton will present a five-course wine dinner themed “Chef, Farmer, and Winemaker” on Thursday, October 26, at the James Beard House in New York City. The dinner theme pays homage to the teamwork behind the success of the 1770 House in celebration of its 15th anniversary. A notable honor, culinary masters from across America and the world are invited to present a dining experience at the James Beard House for foundation members and the public in a dinner for up to 74 guests.

Diners can expect bites like a Bonac clam pie “in the shell” or a peach wood-smoked Montauk bonito as an hors d’oeuvre to start. This will be followed by the fivecourse dinner that includes handcut spicy Montauk fluke, roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts salad, organic North Fork quail, pastureraised Bridgehampton beef, and apple en croute with preserved summer cherries.

“It is a great honor to be invited again to cook at the James Beard House and in this special anniversary year. I want to share the honor by thanking all who make the 1770 House a success. It takes true collaboration to keep it fresh for 15 seasons, open year-round and nightly,” said Rozzi.

Four of the main courses will be paired with wine from the Kontokosta Winery in Greenport.

“From the many vineyards on Long Island, the Kontokosta blends and single varietal wines are very impressive. The selection is broad and pairs incredibly well with Chef Rozzi’s food,” said Cohen. “I also decided to start with BillecartSalmon Champagne and end with the 1998 Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes.” The James Beard House is located in the former Greenwich Village townhouse of cookbook author and television personality James Beard. The mission of the culinary arts organization is to celebrate, nurture, and honor chefs and other leaders making America’s food culture more delicious, diverse, and sustainable for everyone. Tickets are $175 for the general public and $135 for James Beard Foundation members. Visit www. jamesbeard.org.

Guestworthy Recipe: Chef John Poiarkoff

By Zachary Weiss

Sourdough bread Sherry vinegar

CHEF JOHN’S GUESTWORTHY RECIPE: French Onion Toast

Timberdoodle (or other semi-firm washed rind cheese)

WHY?

DIRECTIONS

“This dish is perfect for fall because it’s hearty, rich, and satisfying. It’s a fun reinterpretation of a classic comfort food for when the weather cools down.”

Preheat oven to 325 F. Generously salt oxtail, then sear in oil, in a Dutch oven/heavy baking dish, over medium-high heat, until nicely browned on all sides. Remove oxtail from the pan and reserve at room temperature.

INGREDIENTS

3 lbs of beef oxtail

3 large onions, sliced 2 qts beef stock 2 bay leaves

1 sprig thyme

2 cloves garlic, sliced Parsley Chives Salt

Black pepper

Add sliced onions to the same pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until they start to caramelize, about 20-30 minutes. Add garlic to onions and sweat until fragrant, about one minute. Season with salt and lots of black pepper. Add beef stock, thyme, bay leaves, and oxtail to pan, cover, and bake at 325 for about five hours, or until the meat easily pulls away from the bone. Cool at room temperature Japanese RestauRant and sushi BaR

Pick meat from oxtail, carefully removing any large pieces of fat or cartilage. Reserve meat and onions in the refrigerator.

Place the bones in a pot and cover with the cooking liquid. Simmer until reduced and slightly thickened, about three hours. Skim off any fat from the cooking liquid and strain. Pour the reduced stock over the meat and onions and stir until well combined. (All steps from here up can be done up to three days in advance and reserved in the refrigerator.) Preheat the broiler on your oven.

ragu gently in a pan, until warmed through. Season with a few splashes of sherry vinegar and more salt and pepper if necessary. Spoon oxtail onto toast in a baking dish and top with a thick slice of cheese. Broil for about one or two minutes until cheese is lightly browned around the edges.

Men In Uniform “I like when you dress up in your little costume on Sundays,” Karen said.

I was stunned and more than a little annoyed. After all, it’s not like I had a Zorro cape on – I wear that on Casual Fridays.

It’s not like I had a tutu on, though I do have a pair of ballerina slippers – only because the hard toe makes it easier to kick a football. I had on a football jersey, gym pants, a sweatband, and a couple of wristbands. It’s not a costume or an outfit – it’s my Sunday team uniform.

“You’re not on a team,” she said dismissively.

“Oh yeah? What about my Pluto China Cats? And the Scarlet Fire? And the Annihilator?” I asked, rattling off the names of some of my Fantasy Football teams.

“You should call it the Annoyinator,” she said with a smirk. “These are your fantasy teams – you don’t need to wear a uniform. You just do it because all the other football freaks do it on Sundays.”

She was totally wrong, of course. As I popped open a Bud Lite, grabbed a handful of nachos, and studied

No sir, not me. When they made me they threw away the mold, I thought to myself. I am a natural leader. In fact, I could have been a Marine captain, except I can’t do push-ups. I was almost in the armed forces, except I checked “lesbian” on the application form at the draft board, even though I was a latent heterosexual at the time.

I was so pissed I confronted him – well, actually, I didn’t confront the burly driver, I accosted the fraillooking women who turned after him. I followed her until she got out of the car.

“More like special needs,” she countered.

“Hey Grandma,” I said nicely. “Did you ever wonder why they don’t call it ‘the left of way?’” She looked at me quizzically. “It’s called the right of way. I had the right of way. My blinker was on.” She just stared blankly at me and looked at me like I was about to sexually accost her, which is ridiculous – I was gonna steal her pocketbook. But I digress.

“OK,” I said, “but we’ll have to wait until spring when the weather is better.”

“Now Rick, you are a sensible driver, I trust?”

“I could have been in the special forces,” I told Karen.

And then she threw down the gauntlet. “I dare you to spend one Sunday – just one – with me, doing something other than watching football. I dare you.”

Mixed Signals I remember when I was a little kid drivers would roll down their windows, stick their arms out, and make a sign to indicate if they were turning left or right or slowing down. In fact, I had to learn the hand signals and use them on my road test to get my license. This was problematic if it was raining, or foggy, or really cold out and, keep in mind, no one had power windows back in the day. Then along came the greatest invention of modern times – blinkers. For years virtually every driver used them all of the time. Has anyone out there noticed that is no longer the case? A lot of people have stopped signaling, and it annoys the hell out of me. The other day I was about to make a right turn, my blinker on, when the guy coming the other way turned

When we were teenagers we took pride in being good drivers. When we called on a young lady for a date the father would meet us at the door. He’d be smoking a pipe and looked like Beaver Cleaver’s father.

“Yes, Mr. Benson.”

“And you won’t speed to show off to your friends.” “No, Mr. Benson.”

“Because you’ll be carrying the most precious cargo on Earth,” he would tell me earnestly, as if I didn’t know. Hell, I had a whole case of Budweiser long necks in the trunk.

New rule: If you get caught turning without signaling, you get sentenced to three years of manual signaling – sticking your arm out in the sleet and rain while the seat of your car gets soaked.

Yes To The Hills

Editorial

It is difficult to take a position on an issue so polarizing that hundreds of people take you to task regardless of which way you lean.

october 11

2017

Insight

All of us want the same thing; to minimize the effect of development on our fragile waterways, in this case the Shinnecock watershed. At issue is a plan to build a golf course and over 100 luxury homes on a 600-plus-acre piece of land in East Quogue.

Discovery Land, the developer, needs a supermajority of the Southampton Town Board (four votes) because its proposal is a planned development district. Because of that, Discovery has toned down the scope of the project and sweetened the deal by promising to upgrade the East Quogue school septic system (at a cost of over $1 million), install a septic system for its development that far exceeds legal standards, and purchase and preserve 33 acres at the mouth of a wetland that could otherwise be developed.

That hasn’t been enough to mollify opponents. Two board members, Julie Lofstad and John Bouvier, indicated they intend to vote against it. They apparently believe that if the Discovery PDD is struck down, the developer will abandon the site and sell it to the town for preservation, a position Dick Amper of the Pine Barrens Society espouses. If only it could be so. But that is a pipe dream, wishful thinking, and a strategy that has no basis in fact.

There is zero chance the land will be preserved, and it’s an open secret Discovery has another golf course lined up to purchase and then link to a purchase of a home in The Hills should the PDD be permanently rejected. Discovery indeed has an “as of right” significant development that will go forward. There is no scenario that exists where the town can stop it from occurring. The planning and zoning process will go forth, Discovery will jump through the requisite hoops, and about 160 luxury homes will be built. The question then becomes which of the two possible scenarios will best limit nitrogen loading into the watershed. According to a noted expert, it’s the golf course model.

Remember, should the PDD be shot down, so too will the gift of the expensive septic systems and the promise not to develop the 33 acres.

Landowners have rights. Frankly, Discovery has tried to be a good neighbor. Unfortunately, the pristine wonder of the East End natural habitat has been compromised by all of us. People need a place to live, to work, and to raise their families.

We’ve done a remarkable job of preserving what’s left. We didn’t get this particular parcel, though, and that is no one’s fault. Let’s make The Hills a place to be proud of, a development that will ease the tax burden in East Quogue. Meanwhile let’s ramp up the East End-wide effort of refurbishing or replacing the thousands of archaic cesspools that do the real damage to our bays and waterways and stop blaming every newcomer for something we are all guilty of.

Ed Gifford Skeptics Dear Editor,

In recent weeks, coinciding with the publication of her book, What Happened, former first lady Hillary Clinton has taken to blaming white women for

not voting for her. It might be productive for Mrs. Clinton to pay a bit more attention to local politics. After years of debate between opposing white male “egos”

1826 THE

october 11

Who was your best friend when you were very young?

over whether to approve a proposed PDD to build a golf course resort in East Quogue known as The Hills, town board member Julie Lofstad politely expressed her skepticism of the PDD whereupon the two white male “egos” (who happen to be Democrats) promptly began hollering at her and the rest of the Town Board.

Julia Labaton My first good friend’s name is Charity. We met on the first day of kindergarten when we were coloring together. We have been friends ever since then. Actually we’ve worked together for the last 13 years. Elvia Castro My sister Gloria was my best friend from when we were very young. We did everything together. We’d go for long walks and we’d play soccer after school.

Ms. Lofstad was joined in her skepticism by fellow town board member, John Bouvier, who also chose to remain independent of “ego” politics.

When Discovery Land of Arizona, the developers of The Hills, purchased 600 acres in East Quogue with five-acre zoning, the developers knew they could build a maximum of 120 houses as-of-right. Instead, Discovery Land requested a zoning change in the form of a PDD to build a seasonal housing subdivision, plus a golf course, plus a 38,000-square-foot clubhouse, plus a two-level underground parking garage, based on the disputable argument that a seasonal subdivision would not increase costly school enrollments whereas an as-of-right development would and based on the disputable argument that the PDD was more environmentally friendly than as-of-right housing. By ignoring all of the greenhouse gases that will be introduced into the environment by the PDD, by overlooking all of the environmental and public safety issues surrounding the streets where The Hills will be built, and by alleging to provide septic and community benefits that

Juanita Quint My best friend when I was young was a girl named Maria. We were in school together. We were in the same class. We used to walk together in these long walking competitions. They were walking races and we loved to do that. Jordan, Julia, and Kiryra (left to right) Kiryra: We were in third grade together and then we met Julia in the sixth grade. Jordan: We really are BFFs for life. And that’s spelled: BFF4L.

should be funded by the town, Discovery Land has restricted the parameters by which the PDD will be judged in order to label themselves socially conscious Democrats of the sort with whom Mrs. Clinton identifies. Like someone with a history of drunk driving who convinces a judge to ignore all of his or her priors in the hopes of receiving a favorable sentence, Democrats with egos expect voters to ignore their hypocrisy and misogyny in the hopes of receiving a favorable

Looking Forward Dear Editor,

The committee of the San Gennaro Feast of the Hamptons would like to take this opportunity to thank our media partners in helping to make the seventh annual Feast the success it turned out to be. The Feast has become the largest fall event on the East End, bringing family and friends together for fun days filled with good food and excellent entertainment. A special thanks from Maureen’s Haven, San Gennaro Scholarship Fund, and Coalition for Women’s Cancers, the charities the Feast supports. Now, as we plan for next year, again we look forward to your help in making the eighth Feast even more magical than ever.

the true incidence and distribution of arthropod-borne disease in the county, conducts surveillance and reports the results to the public.

Today, the county reports three new mosquito samples have tested positive for West Nile virus. The sample collected on September 26 from Lindenhurst were of the Culex pipiens-restuans species, and from Islip and East Hampton were of the Culex salinarius species. No mosquito samples tested positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis this week. To date this year, 122 mosquito samples have tested positive for West Nile virus and four samples have tested positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus. No horses have tested positive for mosquito-borne illness in Suffolk County to date this year.

According to Dr. Tomarken, approximately 20 percent of people who become infected with West Nile virus will develop clinically noticeable symptoms of the disease. Mild symptoms may include fever, headache and body aches, skin rash, and swollen lymph glands. More severe symptoms include high fever, headache, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, vision loss, numbness and paralysis. West Nile virus can be fatal. Residents who experience symptoms are advised to visit their healthcare providers. While there is no specific treatment for West Nile virus, patients are treated with supportive therapy as needed.

october 11

2017

Those who are most at risk for severe infection include people over 50 years of age and those with chronic illness or compromised immune systems. These individuals are urged to take precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes during mosquito season, which ends November 1.

Among the recommendations: use insect repellent containing DEET, spray clothing with repellent containing permethrin, avoid going outside from dusk to dawn when most mosquitoes are active, wear long sleeves and long pants when nighttime activity is unavoidable, eliminate standing water from flowerpots, clogged gutters, recycle bins, birdbaths, toys, swimming pools, and hot tub covers.

consider buying a new model— older ones are less effective and use more electricity. The size and location of a room air conditioner has a lot to do with its efficiency. Try to locate units on the north, east, or the best-shaded side of the home. A unit exposed to direct sunlight has to work much harder and use more energy. Pedestal and ceiling fans improve the air circulation, allowing the thermostat to be raised and making the air conditioner’s job a little easier.

Riverhead’s Pantry On The Go opportunity to learn about other services available to them.”

By Nicole Teitler

On September 28, the Riverhead Central School District orchestrated a successful food pantry at the Roanoke Avenue Elementary School. With the assistance of Long Island Cares, in an effort to ensure the area’s underprivileged families are wellnourished, a mobile school pantry has been set up. This vehicle holds nonperishable foods, fresh produce, frozen meats, and other free goods, including coats and books. It aims to educate those needing it most, including brochures and pamphlets that showcase other services that aid families.

LIC and the Harry Chapin Food Bank is a year-round operation that’s been running since 1980. In addition to a new, local mobile pantry for families, the organization operates a pet pantry in partnership with ARF. Mobile services are also provided through a mobile outreach resource enterprise, which brings information, referral assistance, and food when the pantries aren’t open. Chief executive officer of Long Island Cares, Paule Pachter, expressed the staff ’s dedication in reaching children in need of

With its own pantry located on premise, Phillips Avenue Elementary School has been providing needed food to families, which, like the new Roanoke pantry, is open on a monthly basis.

Long Island Cares has volunteer programs available ranging from students to corporate consciousness. If you’d like to volunteer, join in the school pantry food distribution on October 23 from 4:45 to 5:45 PM in the Brentwood/Bayshore area.

A “Win-Win” On North Fork

By Rick Murphy

The third annual North Fork Open, a two-day double elimination event, was a “win-win” on all fronts. Hosted by the TWIGS branch of the Eastern Long Island Hospital auxiliary at Peconic Landing in Greenport, the tournament drew a hearty crowd of both participants and spectators. Best of all, over $4000 was raised for Eastern Long Island Hospital.

Sponsored by Peconic Landing and coordinated by tennis pro Mark Brent, the tournament included a ladies’ competition won by Patty Cortez and Linda Ortiz, both of Greenport. Champions in the men’s competition were Eric Digons of North Easton, MA, formerly of Mattituck, and John Czartosieski of Riverhead. Additional sponsors

included Hampton Tennis, East End Sporting Goods, East End Cardiology, North Fork Radiology, and North Fork Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine. “We are very grateful to Peconic Landing and Mark Brent for their help with this event. It is growing each year, and we welcome more community involvement,” states TWIGS chair Connie Connor.

TWIGS stands for “Together We Inspire Growing Support.” TWIGS is a group of individuals, couples, and families that live, work, and play on the North Fork and Shelter Island and who are enthusiastic about supporting Eastern Long Island Hospital and its mission.

The Nurse Shortage Isn’t A Partisan Issue

By Sheldon D. Fields

The nation is rapidly growing grayer and more ethnically diverse.

The Census Bureau projects that by 2044, over half of all Americans will belong to an ethnic group other than non-Hispanic white. By 2060, nearly one in five Americans will be foreign born.

These demographic shifts will strain a healthcare system ill-prepared for it. Case in point: America’s looming nurse shortage. The largest component of the healthcare workforce, nurses play an indispensable role in the provision of health care. But in the years to come, the demand for nursing services will outstrip the supply -- all the more so because of the 20 million-plus people who gained access to healthcare under the Affordable Care Act.

In this environment, the skills of nurses -- and specifically, advanced practice nurses -- will be especially valuable. Averting any shortfall will require policies from Washington aimed at making the most of those who enter the nursing profession.

retirement age within the next 15 years.

Nursing schools aren’t producing enough graduates to provide the 1.2 million new nurses our nation will need by 2030. A lack of resources forced nursing schools to turn away more than 64,000 qualified applicants in the 2016-17 academic year. On this front, there’s much that lawmakers can do, starting with providing healthcare and educational institutions with the resources to train more nurses.

They can allocate more funding toward Title VIII Nursing Workforce Development programs, which support nurses practicing in underserved communities, nursing diversity grants, the National Nurse Service Corps, and nurse faculty loan forgiveness. Congress should also remove barriers that prevent advanced practice nurses from making full use of their skills.

In Alabama, a nurse practitioner

must have a physician present 10 percent of the time to practice. When nurse practitioners in Missouri treat a new patient, that patient is required to see the collaborating physician within two weeks.

There’s ample precedent for rolling back such regulations. Last year, the Department of Veterans Affairs amended its rules to allow advanced practice nurses to do everything their training and certification empowers them to do in any VA facility. Congress should follow

the VA’s lead and override onerous state restrictions, allowing advanced practiced nurses full practice authority. Not all healthcare reforms need to inspire partisan conflict. Commonsense reforms to avert a nursing shortage deserve the support of both parties -- and are essential to cope with our coming demographic upheaval.

Advanced practice nurses possess a higher level of medical expertise, training, and decision-making authority than traditional registered nurses. The quality of care these nurses provide is excellent. In one study, the health outcomes of primary care patients treated by advanced practice nurses were as good as those for patients treated by physicians. In many cases, patient satisfaction was higher for those who were treated by advanced practice nurses.

Moreover, the versatile skill set of these nurses makes them well-suited to provide services to populations that would otherwise be underserved. Clinics staffed by a nurse practitioner can make a huge difference in areas where the nearest physician is far away.

Shifting demographics will also reduce the supply of nurses. The average age of a working registered nurse is over 50, and nearly half of our 2.7 million nurses will reach

All the pieces were there, but it often takes some time for them to come together.

Friday’s 2-0 win at home versus Westhampton was important for several reasons – it evened the team’s League VI record at 6-6 (7-6 overall), meaning the Bonackers finally climbed all the way out of the hole they put themselves in. More important, the team can now aim for what it started out to

Bonac Field Hockey Rolling

By Rick Murphy

The East Hampton field hockey team, having discovered its offense again, is churning along nicely. “We have started to gel,” coach Robyn Mott said.

Witness Friday’s 2-1 victory over Sayville at home: the team, almost methodical, played solid defense and relied on the offense to generate enough production to pull out the victory. Cue Ana Hugo, on the offense

with four minutes left in the fray. Elizabeth Bistrian saw her flash open, passed her the rock, and bingo! Bonac up, 2-1. The victory made the locals 7-3 for the season.

accomplish; a berth in the Suffolk tournament and a shot at a county championship. Last but not least, the Bonackers sent a message to the teams above them in the standings – the improving defense is going to be tough to score on from here on out. Case in point, Bonac has allowed only two goals in the past five games. Friday Wilmer Guzman took care

of things offensively. He netted both of East Hampton’s goals, one off a nifty assist from Jean Paul Palacios, and the defense did the rest, with netminder Kurt Matthews turning away four shots.

Westhampton (0-10) is having an off year to be sure. Goalie Simon Brathwaite had a busy afternoon as the porous Hurricanes defense allowed East Hampton to penetrate frequently. Brathwaite was credited with eight saves.

Westhampton gets Bayport/Blue Point (3-5, 5-6 overall) Saturday at home at 1 PM. Bonac plays Mt. Sinai at home tomorrow at 4:30 PM.

Registration For Riverhead

By Rick Murphy

To streamline the registration process for all Riverhead Central School District middle and high school athletes, the athletic department is inaugurating a new online registration system.

The new registration system, which will be available for the winter 2017/18 sporting season, will not only make it easier for the school district to track information, but for parents and students to do so as well. Once an athlete’s required information is put into the system via any computer or smartphone, written documents will no longer be required. The information will also pre-populate season to season and year to year. The only documentation students must provide to the district are physicals for the nurse’s approval. The new system will also include a phone application that can be downloaded to allow parents to easily manage their child’s athletic information.

631-864-5575 631-864-5575

Official registration through the new system commenced yesterday for the winter season, December 22 for the late winter middle school sports season, and February 2, 2018 for the spring season.

To access the new system, visit www.rankonesport.com, click the parents’ tab and follow the directions to register for an account. For more detailed instructions, visit the Riverhead Central School District’s athletic page at www. riverheadathletics.com.

“I would say overall our play in the midfield won us the game,” Mott said.

The offense meanwhile is beginning to click. The team is “working on controlling the ball and passing with a purpose,” Mott noted.

Witness the road game against Hampton Bays two days earlier – the Lady Bonackers exploded for six goals, with the dynamic duo of Hugo and Bistrian once again in the spotlight. Bistrian had three goals and Hugo scored twice. Maya Schultz and Catherine Wicker each had two assists. Tia Weiss manned the net. But oftentimes on a good team the names of key players don’t show up in the boxscore. “Kate Ward, our sweeper, has improved over the past three years and is now the rock in our defense,” Mott said.
