CONFESSIONS OF A CLUMSY OAF This is a column that I wrote when it happened back in 1998. Let me state right now that every word you are about to read is true. This happened exactly as I described it. I am an oaf. Many years ago my mom tried to explain my clumsiness to a friend by saying, “Jerry is a good boy, but his hands don’t work.” I’m telling you this to explain my actions on a Continental Airlines flight from San Diego to Newark. I was in horrible pain. A few months earlier, a horrible oral surgeon attempted to hammer four implants into my mouth. He batted .500. One of the implants hit a nerve and severed it. As a result, I lost all feeling on the lower right side of my lip and jaw for the rest of my life. Another implant caused an infection. I switched doctors and a wonderful oral surgeon told me he was going to have to take out IndependentAd_July12_Vert.pdf 1 the infected implant the minute I

returned from a business trip to San Diego. So there I was, stumbling onto Continental flight 116 at 8 in the morning, stoned on pain-killers and Valium, which my doctor had prescribed. I was also half asleep because I hadn’t been able to get a moment’s rest since the ordeal started a few months before. Carrying a heavy brown shoulder bag that contained most of my worldly possessions, I made my way down the aisle. I also had my black computer bag (which weighs a ton), and I had one of those black canvas pieces of luggage on wheels, which travel a straight line like a drunk with 12 gins in him. I also had a Starbuck’s coffee, a bag with three magazines, a San Diego Padres baseball cap for my son J.T., and a San Diego T-shirt for my daughter Jessie. Then I saw him. He was sitting in seat 4B on the aisle. I was headed for seat 4A by the window. So help 7/27/12 PM me, he4:33 weighed 350 pounds. The minute I saw him, I knew the only reason he was sitting in first class was because he couldn’t get into a smaller coach seat unless someone used Crisco to grease up his sides. We locked eyes. My eyes said, “Please get up so I can get settled

in.” His eyes said, “Fat chance.” He just sat there and watched me struggling with my luggage. The aisle was crowded. People were pushing past me. It was hot. I was sweating bullets. “Excuse me, sir,” I said. “I just want to get my computer onto my seat.” He didn’t say anything. He just nodded and kept reading The Wall Street Journal. So I swung my case toward the window seat and SPLAT! I hit the fat guy with the side of my computer case right in the head. I was horrified. “I’m so, so sorry,” I said. “Are you okay?” He sat there glaring at me, rubbing the side of his head. “Are you all right?” I persisted. “It’s all right. It’s all right,” he mumbled, as he rubbed his head with his left hand. “I’m soooo, sooooo sorry,” I repeated. “It’s all right” he said. “AAAHHHHHHH!!! YOU’RE BURNING ME!!!” “What?” I asked. “BURNINGGG MEEEEEE!!!” he screamed. I looked down and saw I had tilted the cup of scalding hot Starbuck’s coffee and it was splashing on his beefy right arm. “Oh,” I said, flustered. “I’m so . . . so . . . sorry.” “All right,” he said. “I’m getting up,” and he painfully and slowly pushed himself out of the chair. As I was trying to stuff my leather bag into the overhead bin, I heard him say, “Be careful! You’re going to ruin my jacket.” I forced the bag into the overcrowded overhead and slammed the door shut. “OPEN IT! OPEN ITTTTTT!” I heard from my right. I turned to see the fat guy with three of his fingers stuck in the overhead. I had slammed the door on his fingers. The flight attendants were very nice and they put Band-Aids on his two bleeding fingers with a

flourish and a big smile. The third finger wasn’t bleeding much, but it looked pretty bruised. I sat in my seat, miserable, as all the other passengers were giggling at the scene. When the fat man finally sat down and glared at me, I said, “I know you must think I’m the passenger from hell, but I promise you I’m going to sit here and not say a word until we land in Newark. And again – I’m really, really sorry.” He just glared. About an hour out of Newark, I asked the flight attendant for a Diet Coke. Before she brought it, the last pain killer kicked in and I fell sound asleep. I must have had a dream or a nightmare. I remember flailing my arms out and hearing a voice saying, “Oh God! Oh God!” For a second, I thought I was having some sort of religious dream. But the voice screaming “Oh God!” was not my voice. It sounded a lot like the voice of the Fat Man. When I opened my eyes I saw that in flailing my arms around in my sleep I had hit the glass of Diet Coke. You guessed it: the glass, the ice, the Diet Coke had all landed the Fat Man’s lap. Do you remember when you were in grade school and something funny happened and you couldn’t let the teacher see you laughing so you covered your mouth and made snorting sounds to suppress the laughter? That’s what I did. For the rest of the flight, I turned my head to the window and made these weird snorting sounds. When the plan landed, my overweight seatmate jumped up and headed for the door, pushing people out of his way. He moved with incredible speed. As I looked at his hulking, fleeing body, I thought to myself, “He didn’t even say goodbye.” If you wish to comment on “Jerry’s Ink” please send your message to jerry@ dfjp.com.

Build Safe Center, Combat Bullying By Kitty Merrill

When it comes to offering programs that foster a safe environment for Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender youth, the East Hampton School District is “a role model,” according to David Kilmnick. The chief executive officer of the advocacy organization Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth facilitated a community forum at the high school on Monday night. The focus of the outing was two-pronged – to brainstorm ways to make East Hampton’s good programs better and to discuss creation a GLBT center on the East End. With a portrait of David Hernandez Barros on a huge screen behind him, Kilmnick spoke of the obstacles faced by LGBT teens. It’s been rumored that Barros, an EHHS student took his own life last month because he was bullied by other students because he was gay. “David is what brought us here,” Kilmnick said. “But before David this was happening and after David it will still happen.” Nevertheless, the community can do more to address the “epidemic’ of school bullying. Though sparsely attended --

there were few students in the audience and even fewer Latino community members or parents -- the 90-minute discussion was marked by a determined desire to address the problem, despite rather harrowing statistics. Kilmnick reported that GLBT youth are twice as likely to say they have been physically assaulted at school, with Hispanic GLBT experiencing an even higher level of verbal and physical harassment. Eighty five percent of GLBT kids re p o rt he a ri ng a nt i- ga y a nd homophobic language on a regular basis, 60 percent of GLBT youth report feeling unsafe because of their sexual orientation, 55 percent report experiencing cyber bullying, and four in 10 say they live in a community that is not accepting of them. “There’s nowhere they can go where they can simply be themselves,” Kilmnick said. An island-wide organization that will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year, LIGALY operates two youth centers up west and is looking to open one on the East End. Two existing centers – in Bay Shore and Garden City – offer an array

Joel Johnson, an EHHS junior and president of the school’s Gay Straight Alliance, reported that he travelled with friends the 60 miles to the Bay Shore center every Friday night for its weekly social event last year. Being there, he said, “gave me the courage to come out to my parents, and that gave me the courage to come out to my

Cantwell To Retire

By Kitty Merrill

“After 30 years of service to the Village of East Hampton, I’ve advised the board of my intention to retire,” Village Administrator Larry Cantwell said last Friday morning. At the close of last week’s meeting of the village board, Mayor Paul Rickenbach turned to his long time colleague, announcing he had a statement he wished to make. Cantwell said he would hold any

detailed comment until his last meeting next year, informing that he would remain in his position until next June or July, depending on how long it takes his replacement to transition. Still, he offered brief thanks to Rickenbach, pointing out, “I have a very special relationship with Mayor Rickenbach,” who’s offered him guidance and support during his two decades at the helm.

“It’s been an honor and a privilege for me to be Village Administrator over the past 30 years,” the softspoken official continued. “I thank the Board of Trustees for providing me with their confidence that has enabled me to do my job.” Cantwell offered heartfelt praise for village employees who have “given me their help every step of the way.” “Without question,” he asserted, “They are the real heroes of the village . . . it would have been impossible for me to do my job without their help . . . any time I asked them, they were always there.”

After 30 years East Hampton Village Administrator Larry Cantwell is retiring.

Cantwell saved final thanks for the residents of East Hampton Village. “They always treated me with respect.” Board members on the dais seemed visibly moved, an observation the mayor confirmed. “It’s difficult to put into words what I think is felt by everybody here at the head table,” he said, relating that when Cantwell told members that he planned to retire privately “You could hear a pin drop.” Calling his colleague “a legend in his own time” boasting a “sterling” reputation, Rickenbach promised there will be a time for public recognition of Cantwell’s accomplishments at a future date. In the interim, he wished his confrere “a successful journey.” Noting there will be ample time to say all she wanted to about Cantwell, Trustee Barbara Borsack simply offered, “It’s a sad day.” The veteran official’s successor will have “big shoes to fill,” she added. Making a pledge to work on a seamless transition, the mayor invited interested individuals to submit applications and resumes to the village administrator. “I’ve got a heavy heart making this announcement,” he concluded. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Estuary Program Celebrated In Flanders By Emily Toy

Federal, state, county and local officials plus environmentalists and citizens gathered in Flanders Friday morning to mark the 20th anniversary of the Peconic Estuary Program. The program was created to establish a framework for monitoring water quality. Since 1993, Peconic has been on the list of America’s 28 Estuaries of National Significance and has received millions of dollars to study, clean, purchase, maintain, and preserve land and waters making up the ecosystem. Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst, Councilwoman Bridget Fleming, County Executive Steve Bellone, Assemblyman Fred Thiele, U.S. Representative Tim Bishop, State Senator Ken LaValle, and Legislator Jay Schneiderman were among the officials who turned out to celebrate the program. The Peconic study area associated with the estuary program starts at the western end of the Peconic River and stretches east to the Block Island Sound between Plum Island and Montauk Point. In total, the study area spans more than 283,000 acres of water and land. Since its inception, the estuary program has not only ser ved to protect an environmentally significant ecosystem, but also as an economic machine, a fact most officials noted during Friday’s event. When the estuary earned its federal designation nearly two decades ago, more than 1100 establishments were found to be dependent on it, acting as a job generator, according to data from the estuary program. It has employed more than 7000 people across the East End. “Peconic Bay is a job creator,” Bishop said. “There is a tremendous amount of activity that takes place that would not be happening here were it not for the bay or were it not for the way the quality of the bay is maintained . . .” A comprehensive management plan, which outlines everything from proper sewage maintenance to public outreach, was created and put in place in 2001. “The Clean Air Act and Community Preservation Funds allow these recommendations to not sit on the shelf,” Thiele said. Peter Scully, the director of Long Island’s Department of Environmental Conservation

regional office, agreed, noting Friday’s event was an effort “to get people to renew their commitment to preserving the Peconic Estuary.” All officials agreed continued support is vital for the estuary program’s continued success. “We’ve made great strides, but we have to do more,” said Joan Leary Matthews, regional director of clean water for the Environmental Protection Agency. “We need to look forward and not be complacent.” Emily@indyeastend.com

If the fishing were good, a driftwood fire would be made for a breakfast of snapper and fried eggs.

He began his Broadway career as an actor in the comedy Southern Exposure, and later turned to directing for NBC’s Kraft Television Theater. Later, as a director for ABC Sports under Roone Arledge he was given the freedom to innovate and introduced the music of David Amram to TV audiences. He was an investor in the hit musical Hair and his firm, Gifford/Wallace, Inc., handled the show’s public relations worldwide. Classically trained in theater at Carnegie-Mellon, then called Carnegie Tech, he interrupted his theater studies to serve in World War II. Gifford fought in the European theatre of operations in the Second World War under General Alexander Patch, 7th Army. He served as a combat engineer in a pontoon bridge building outfit. Working under enemy fire, Gifford replaced bridges across the Rhine River in the Rhone Valley of France. The Nazis had blown the bridges on their retreat back into Germany. Gifford’s favorite war story was always the one about the day he single handily captured 10 German soldiers. In fact, the soldiers were all standing by the side of the road chatting, hanging out and waving white hankies as Gifford drove up in his truck. They were looking for a lift to the American base, where they had heard there were food and cigarettes for surrendering troops. Before piling into the back of the truck Gifford made each soldier proclaim his love for America and sit on the head of a giant bust of Hitler which Gifford had recently liberated from a Vichy police station. The bust of Hitler became Gifford’s traveling companion on his long drives through the Rhone valley. Serving in France, Gifford learned the language and developed a love Continued on Page 26.

No Clues On Missing Man By Rick Murphy

George Richardson has literally vanished without a trace, and police and family have all but given up hope that he is alive. Richardson, a Dix Hills executive, was vacationing in Montauk with his wife, Mary, and three sons ages 10 to 16. On August 28 police believe Richardson went for an early morning walk on the beach across the street from Hartman’s Briney Breezes Motel, where the family was staying, as he had the other mornings during the vacation. He was wearing an orange “Montauk” baseball cap. The family later told police a pair of sandals and a red body board were unaccounted for. Richardson, five-foot, six-inches with gray hair and a small scar on his chin, was the subject of intensive searches by local police and the Suffolk County K-9 unit, which scoured the entire oceanside in Montauk on several occasions. Det. Sgt. Chris Anderson of the East Hampton Town Police said it is too early to declare the missing man dead. “The official determination takes some time,” he said. “We’re still carrying out more investigative work, but nothing fruitful.” The family has commented publicly only once, in late September

Police said there were people on the beach, and one onlooker said he saw a man in the surf on a boogie board, though he could not identify him. Anderson said the police checked with the coast guard and weather services and deduced the current was probably sweeping out to sea at the time.

Accused Of Spying On Tenants By Kitty Merrill

Lots of people come out to The Hamptons to see and be seen . . . but not during their most private moments in their own accommodations. That’s what a New Jersey family claims happened when they rented Don Torr’s house on Winterberry Lane in Springs last August. Police aren’t talking about the ongoing investigation, but a federal lawsuit filed earlier this month spills the beans, accusing Torr of using hidden video cameras in the bedrooms and shower of the house to capture images of the tenants, a family that includes three minors, aged seven, three and 17 months. According to court documents

obtained by The Independent, the suit features anonymous pleadings, not listing the names of the plaintiffs because the case involves “a gross violation of privacy.” On August 30, the complaint states, the tenants discovered hidden video cameras pointed directly at the beds in electrical boxes in two outlets, in an outdoor shower aimed right where a person’s genitalia would be while he or she was showering, and in the air conditioning vent in another bedroom, pointed at the bed. The day after the first cameras were found, Suffolk County police found more cameras hidden in a television, above a Jacuzzi tub, in a smoke detector in a walk-in closet,

After serving as a Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney from 1970 to 1974, Judge Gary J. Weber was a partner in the local law firm of Weber and Pohl, P.C. until his election as a Suffolk County Court Judge. In 1992 Judge Weber received Newsday’s praise: “He knows the law, he works long hours and, lawyers say, he’s fair. He has tried more cases than any Suffolk County Court Judge during the past 4 years.” By 2002 he was named Judge of the Year by the Suffolk County Criminal Bar Association.

were active and the video images that they captured were stored on the digital video recorder,” the complaint states, reporting that the cameras were connected to a recorder that was connected to the internet allegedly allowing Torr to view the videos remotely. The complaint states that during a taped phone conversation on September 3, Torr “admitted that he was able to view any video that was recorded remotely through the Internet.” (Torr now resides in Florida.) The complaint continues, stating Torr “falsely claimed that all of the cameras, including those pointed towards beds and the one in the shower, had been installed only for security purposes.” The tenants left the house before the end of the rental period and Torr refunded their money, reportedly $6500, for a week’s stay. In all, the claim lists nine plaintiffs, and seeks compensatory and punitive damages totaling $6.45 million, plus attorneys’ fees. The largest sum would go to the three children who were allegedly filmed nude, which is defined as “sexually explicit conduct” under the law. The adults were additionally filmed engaging in bedroom activities, the court document alleges. Because a criminal investigation is ongoing, cops and the district attorney haven’t commented. The family’s attorney, Judd Burstein, however, was quoted stating the spying violates certain child pornography statutes. Described as a secluded house in the woods, the five bedroom, 3500 square foot home is listed on the website flipkey. Rental prices run from $250 to $4500 per night. The site offers glowing reviews from past guests, one of who described Torr as “kind and accommodating.” Others mention staying there with their children. For years, Torr and his family owned the Crow’s Nest restaurant in Montauk. According to his bio on flipkey, he lived at the Winterberry house for 15 years before retiring and moving to Celebration, Florida. He did not immediately return a call for comment. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Frequent visitors Rona Klopman and David Buda spoke of employees. Buda would like to see copies of employee contracts posted on the town’s website. They are public information, he said, but accessible only by the unwieldy Freedom of Information process. Supervisor Bill Wilkinson balked at the notion, stating that in the private sector, such documents are kept confidential. He said he’d defer to advice from counsel. Buda noted that, while employee salaries, as well as the costs of their benefits, are listed in the town budget, total compensation is not readily available. Klopman’s view on employee management related to staffing in the code enforcement department. Given the volume of related issues that arise each summer, she supports a request made by

Councilwoman Sylvia Overby -- that more seasonal staff be added to code enforcement. Wilkinson reported that he recently met at length with town police officials to review the summer’s activities and problems and see how adjustments may be made for next season. Ashley Silverman also spoke to a code enforcement conundrum. A homeowner on Indian Wells Highway in Amagansett since 1990, she offered comment regarding the situation at Indian Wells Beach. As has been reported before, this past summer the beach became the in spot for young revelers, much to the consternation of families and locals. Silverman credited the Internet and Facebook with spreading the perception that Indian Wells Beach is an ideal place to “drink all weekend.” She favors prohibiting the consumption of alcohol on the beaches during the times when lifeguards are on duty as well as setting a special noise decibel level for music. Silverman said that outside of bars and taxi companies, she doesn’t believe the visitors contribute much to the local economy. Ira Barocas, a resident of Babe’s Lane in Springs and president of the Duck Creek Farm Association spoke of how the preserve in his neighborhood, one of the only waterfront open space parcels in the hamlet, has been neglected. He said he and his neighbors are hoping to participate in the “adopt a preserve” pilot program. Finally, Ilissa Meyer reprised objections she has to the town’s draft deer management plan. She takes issue with making a correlation between deer population and Lyme disease, and cited data that shows an increase in Lyme disease cases when the deer population dips. A hearing on the deer management plan will be held on December 6. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Fingers were pointed at the district following the suicide, particularly since district officials declined to discuss specifics of Barros’ school life. (It’s prohibited by federal law). Assistant principal Maria Mondini, a lesbian who remained closeted for the first 20 of her 28 years as an educator said

that at the school, “We do deal with things head-on.” This week, the district will bring in outside experts to assess the school climate. High School Principal Adam Fine reported that while the district could have provided a knee jerk response to the suicide, “We’re looking for lasting change.” Audience members offered a variety of suggestions and requests. Pediatric caregiver Harriet Hillman wants to make sure some programs are tailored to the different needs of the Latino population, while another audience member wondered whether the same antibullying training given to teachers can be provided for the community. Others spoke about the responsibility of government and kids’ own families when it comes to social problems. Dan Harnett, a school social worker, pointed out

that since local government cut funding for programs, the school has had to take on more of those activities. Perhaps the town has a building it can offer as a home for the LIGALY center, he said wryly. Rhonnie Winokur, a bus driver with the district, wants to find a positive way to help kids who bully. A lesbian who suffered an abusive family life, she suggested that kids who bully are often bullied themselves at home. “What are we

EDITORIAL Time To Implement Changes At a recent roundtable East End officials gathered to discuss what we all already know -- the traffic situation in these parts is dreadful, and getting worse by the day. There seemed to be a perception there were more fatalities this year than in years past, but the statistics don’t play out. Regardless, this summer was undoubtedly the worst ever for traffic congestion, especially for those who need to drive to work. County Legislator Jay Schneiderman pointed out that the use of cellphones by drivers is rampant, either for talking, texting, or surfing, yet tickets are seldom issued. Local police responded that it is difficult to catch people in the act, and that’s a cop out (pardon the pun). We see scores of people every day with phones to their ears while driving – pull them over and ticket them, period. We also notice traffic control personnel standing idly by while drivers commit assorted infractions right in front of them. They should be trained to order the driver to pull over and call an officer to the scene. We’ve never liked the idea of electronic surveillance, but unfortunately the time has probably come to use automated cameras to catch speeders, as Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst suggested. The cameras are widely in use in Europe now, and statistics prove they act as a crime deterrent as well.

Time To Go Dear Mr. Murphy, It is time for Tim Bishop to go. He has been a mediocre Congressman these last 10 years with no legislation that bears his name. But worse, he has betrayed voters. Embroiled in a serious pay-to-play corruption scandal, he has been named one of the most corrupt members of Congress by the Committee for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a non-partisan ethics group. Bishop is silent as regulations devastate our farming and fishing industries. After promising constituents he would not vote for the Affordable Care Act, in a spectacular act of betrayal he voted yes on Christmas Eve for this grotesque

government power grab that will crush religious and personal liberty. Bishop’s vote for Obamacare has already resulted in a $700 billion reduction to Medicare. And, Obamacare will sic 13,000 new IRS agents, not doctors, on we the people. This madness has to stop. Randy Altschuler is an intelligent, American success story who will represent all East End residents with vigor and integrity. So, on Election Day, November 6, I hope voters will go to the polls and make Randy Altschuler their new congressman. CAROLE CAMPOLO

We also like the automated crossroad lighting recently installed in East Hampton Village; drivers have over the years begun to blatantly disregard pedestrian crossings, and it’s not only rude, it’s dangerous, particularly when there are multiple lanes of traffic. One solution to our traffic woes voiced at the meeting should be implemented immediately. Suffolk County medical examiner Yvonne Milewski pointed out that when a fatality occurs traffic comes to a standstill sometimes for many hours, as was the case on County Road 39 during the summer. The reason is a medical examiner must declare a person legally dead before the scene of the accident is cleared. That means we wait until the examiner drives out here. Milewski suggested that emergency personnel be empowered to make the call, thus limiting the time the victims remain on the roadways. The bottom line is we all need to reassess our driving habits. As one official noted, for some reason Long Island drivers are extremely aggressive. The combination of heavy traffic, aggressive driving, and someone rushing to get to work -- or a ritzy party -- is a recipe for disaster. That said, aggressive drivers should be aggressively ticketed – and the courts should be less inclined to plea bargain them down. Let the points pile up, and eventually the worst of the lot will lose their driving privileges.

future. That’s why I wanted to take the opportunity through this week’s column to again outline the major points in my jobs plan, and encourage everyone to visit my web site at www.LIJobsPlan.com to read the entire plan before Election Day. My plan will create jobs, boost small businesses and grow Long Island’s economy by: 1) Giving entrepreneurs the tools they need to start new businesses, making it more palatable for people to take risks and follow their dreams. That includes reforming and simplifying the federal tax code to spur investment and job creation. We should lower rates for everyone, and close loopholes that benefit the ultra-rich. 2) Repealing and replacing Obamacare with common sense reforms that lower the cost of insurance, while preserving the doctor-patient relationship. 3) Eliminating costly regulations that strangle business growth and job

creation, while rolling out the red carpet, instead of the red tape, for businesses in Suffolk County. We need to become more competitive with neighboring states and countries around the world. 4) Enacting a sensible energy policy that expands domestic oil and gas production, along with renewable energies to help reduce prices for consumers. 5) Protecting and fostering the growth of our local fishing industry, and the myriad of small businesses that depend on its continued success. 6) Supporting and promoting Suffolk County’s agricultural community, incentivizing private sector employers to hire local veterans and attracting new capital investment to Suffolk County. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I am confident that a growing local economy and expanding commercial tax base would allow us to deal more effectively with the serious issues facing Continued on page 18.

In brief, Mr. Giuliani, who rose above the special interests and cronyism of both parties, focused on two issues: reducing

Georgiana Gavalas I’m going to be a Unicorn with rainbow wings and highlights. The highlights are on a clip that you put in your hair and there are rainbow colored highlights going down from the clip.

Connor Bono I’m going to be a Dragon Ninja. I really like Ninjas because they have swords and daggers. Last year I was a gladiator and I had a big sword and a shield.

Zai Karahapetion I’m going to be Domo. Domo is a Japanese cartoon character. It’s a top-action cartoon. I’m going to wear a dress with a picture of domo on it and then put my hat on top of it.

Colin Picket I’m going to be Supergirl. I really love all the Super Heroes. I like Superman too but I’m a girl so I’ll be Supergirl. Girl Power! Last year I was an angel and the year before that I was a witch.

crime and improving questionably-zoned areas like Times Square. Therefore I have to conclude that a Republican like Randy Altschuler could also deliver much-needed reform by addressing specific issues. I have discussed horse farming so let me be clear that I can prove at least one farm and farmhouse west of the canal have been carrying real-dollar expense and liability because of a badlydesigned highway project and questionable development. Further, taxes west of the canal are the highest in Southampton; the Riverhead Town side of the Peconic River has improved whereas the Southampton side has struggled; motels in Riverhead, Greenport and Montauk have been refurbished by investors into attractive accommodations whereas west of the canal, motels are used for taxpayersubsidized housing. I could go on, but since no elected official has addressed these meaningful issues, I believe they represent an opportunity for an innovator like Randy Altschuler. SUSAN CERWINSKI

First Step To the Editor, Last week, a letter signed by all chief

REAL ESTATE

THE INDEPENDENT Q Traveler Watchman

elected officials of the Five East End Towns and Villages, save East Hampton, was sent to the FAA by NYS Assemblyman Fred Thiele requesting a southern helicopter route along the Atlantic Ocean be mandated for craft heading to East Hampton from the south. This request is not new. The letter referenced and attached a June 2010 document signed by four East End Supervisors requesting this same route change among other essential access limitations for both East Hampton airport and Gabreski airport in Westhampton. This is an important first step and Assemblyman Thiele, Congressman Bishop and Southampton Supervisor Anna ThroneHolst are to be congratulated for leading the charge. However, while there may be some justification for sending helicopters over the Atlantic to approach East Hampton airport, simply spreading the noise around victimizes greater numbers of homeowners and wildlife, rather than addressing the source of the problem. What is new is that elected officials from all levels of government united, in short order, to properly represent their various constituents suffering from unrelenting aircraft noise from East Hampton airport. Our airport and the aircraft traveling to and from it has become a serious regional quality of life problem for all East End residents, as this letter makes clear. Notably absent from this request, was the signature of East Hampton Supervisor Bill Wilkinson, who deferred, preferring

www.indyeastend.com

the consent of the entire East Hampton Town Board before committing to such a request. Councilman Stanzione, however, affixed his signature to this document, persevering in his solo decision making approach to airport policy. This same policy single-handedly created the Bastille Day Bombardment of Noyac, North Sea and Sag Harbor when the Councilman directed all helicopter traffic previously using the Northwest Creek route to come in and out over Jessups Neck. Remarkably, it was this route change and the Councilman’s independent action, which has galvanized elected officials all over the East End in efforts to provide relief from aircraft noise to their residents. The noise problem at East Hampton airport is a political problem with a political solution. Local elections are one year away. Voters are paying close attention to this issue. Elected officials, take note. KATHLEEN CUNNINGHAM

True Vision Dear Editor, President Obama proved during the second presidential debate that he could get mad and angry. Unfortunately he

October 24, 2012

was unable to graciously put aside his self-destructive demeanor long enough to give Americans a healthy plan for a positive future. All he could do was regurgitate a litany of failed policies while reiterating his demonic intention to stifle and suppress religious freedom in America through Obamacare. On the heels of a timid performance in the first debate, prodemocratic CNN moderator Candy Crowley tried desperately, if not unfairly, to get Obama back in the game by repeatedly stifling Mitt Romney’s early rebuttals to Obama’s comments - so much so, in fact, that by the halfway mark of the debate Obama has amassed a stunning 6 minute lead over Romney in talking time. This, however, was not enough to help Obama overcome himself and put a dent in the fresh, humble, spirited and optimistic armor of the more presidential looking Mitt Romney - a man with a true vision and the right stuff to restore economic and spiritual hope and prosperity to all Americans. The road to perdition is long and wide (Matt 7:14) and for the past 4 years Americans have been following it. On November 6 you can change the course of history by entering upon the “narrow way” with Gov. Mitt Romney. PAUL KOKOSKI

Gifford

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 10. of the food and culture that stayed with him. Gifford’s worldview was molded by the war. He developed self-confidence, optimism and a belief in the power of good that served him throughout his life. Being a believer in the use of military power, Gifford increasingly questioned the motives, and feasibility of America’s involvement in South East Asia. He eventually became involved in the antiwar movement. In the “Mad Men” era of either big ad agencies or sole practitioner press agents, Gifford/Wallace, Inc. was established in 1968 as one of the first boutique branding and strategy firms. Gifford was constantly on the lookout for avant garde causes and countercultural artists to introduce to a broader audience. Some of those included the playwright David Mamet, rock impresario Bill Graham, social critic and comedian Dick Gregory, Ellen Stewart of La MaMa, and John Belushi, Bill Murray and Gilda Radner, later of “Saturday Night Live” fame. His business was housed at 1211 Park Avenue, a five-story Georgianstyle brownstone on the Upper East Side that served both as professional offices and a New York cultural salon. Gifford and his late wife and business partner Michael Gifford, rarely left the house for clients or meetings with media. Instead, their home became a destination for artists, performers and reporters, where Gifford held court, not at a desk, but while expertly cooking elaborate meals on a professional Garland restaurant range he had installed in his living room. (In 1995, the Times described Gifford “an accomplished amateur cook” and shared his recipe for scallops.) His clients, an eclectic crowd of artists and New York go-getters and business owners, enjoyed his hospitality and his joie de vivre. Those clients included Tennessee Williams, Josephine Baker, Tom Stoppard, Geoffrey Holder, Adam D. Tihany, Eudora Welty, and Eileen Ford.

THE INDEPENDENT Q Traveler Watchman

Before the days of social media, Gifford incubated connections between influencers and clients to generate buzz and influence public opinion in a way he believed advertising could not. Despite the staid white shoe Park Avenue address, Gifford relished the edgy and progressive, the farther out the client the better. He championed Bill Graham when the West Coast music promoter first arrived in New York to rent a scruffy former movie theater in the East Village called the Fillmore East and then secured support from the administration of then New York Mayor John V. Lindsay to bring the Grateful Dead -and Mr. Graham -- to the Naumberg Bandshell in Central Park for one of the cult band’s very first New York performances. The activist Dick Gregory, in his 1976 autobiography, credited Gifford with helping to give him a national platform. A pioneer in recognizing the moral power of cause marketing, i n 19 7 0 d u r i n g t h e N i x o n administration, Gifford arranged for the producer of Hair to step in to provide direct financial support to the United Nations when U.N. Secretary U Thant reported the organization was short monies needed for a global U.N. Youth gathering. This bold move made front-page news around the world and encouraged theatergoers to take the show’s message to heart. Gifford began sending the cast to perform at anti-war rallies. Later, as U.S. casualties grew steeper in Vietnam, Gifford began making ad buys for the musical, not in the entertainment pages of newspapers, but rather on the obituary pages, as a reminder of the show’s serious message. In 1969, when CBS pulled an anti-war segment on the Smothers Brothers television show, the brothers turned to Gifford to make their case to the media. When mainstream theater critics slammed David Mamet’s first Broadway show American Buffalo for vulgarity Gifford went directly to a different generation -- high school and college journalists across the city.

He invited them to cover the show, meet with Mamet, and encouraged them to look beyond the profane language for the deeper meaning of Mamet’s social commentary. Godspell and over two-dozen other Broadway shows were represented by his agency. Long before the invention of the “pop up” store, Gifford gave his client, TDF, the Theater Development Fund, a boost by staging a temporary kiosk in Father Duffy Square that became so successful that it remains in use, known as TKTS. Later, at the dawn of the age of disco, Gifford’s work in the early days of television came in handy when he offered branding expertise to the owners of a new nightclub. It turned out that Gifford had worked as an assistant director on the CBS children’s show “Captain Kangaroo” when the space was called Studio 52. Gifford changed the name to match the street the studio was on. Gifford had worked with Jules Fisher on the original cast production of Hair and also Lenny, the play about the comedian Lenny Bruce, and he tapped Fisher to create lights and an innovative set design. The Gifford/Wallace conception and launch of Studio 54 is chronicled in the Anthony Haden-Guest book, The Last Party, but Gifford saw the nightclub only as a footnote. According to a 1978 piece in New York Magazine about Mr. Gifford and his wife, “Actually, Studio 54 was merely the latest ‘phenomenological piece’ in the Giffords’ shop.” Ed and Michael Gifford’s former business partner, David Wallace, a writer and author now living in Palm Springs, California recalls the firm being dubbed “suavely hip” by Esquire Magazine. By that time, Gifford’s trend spotting had captured media interest. He helped to start Food & Wine magazine as an adviser to Michael and Ariane Batterbery and Gifford/Wallace took on Cue magazine. And he began consulting t e l e v i s i o n f o r We s t i n g h o u s e Broadcasting, WBZ-TV in Boston and New York ’s Channel Five, then called WNYW. Never a conformist, Gifford could not resist tweaking his corporate clients. As a consultant to Channel Five, Gifford initiated a kite-flying extravaganza in Central Park. Said Gifford in the August 22, 1988 edition of The New York Times: “The whole idea is to get people to turn off their TV sets and go outside.”

IN THE NEWS

Despite the quote, he kept the account. Other clients included The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, and South Street Seaport. Gifford was a lifetime member of The Players, the club founded by Mark Twain and Edwin Booth overlooking Gramercy Park. After the unexpected death of his wife Michael in 1988, he retired. Their files were acquired by the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University, a research library dedicated to preserving the archives of those “whose lives and careers contributed to the growth of the film industry and to the history of the theater” and which includes the papers of Samuel Beckett, Sam Shepherd, and Orson Welles. In the 1960s after a number of fatal accidents at unmarked Long Island Rail Road crossings in East Hampton he organized a protest. He “borrowed” a casket and placed it on the tracks at the Amagansett station while local young mothers held picket signs demanding safety. Spot news photos of the smashed casket hit the front pages of the New York metro papers and the next day, then-LIRR chairman William Ronin announced a change of policy and the crossing bars were installed directly after. In East Hampton, he was an early convert to organic gardening, harvesting seaweed from the beach as mulch and keeping a compost heap. In the late 1970s he grew marijuana there after reading a Time magazine article about an herbicide called Paraquat that was being sprayed on pot plants in Mexico. He did so, he said, because his children were teenagers at the time. Those teenagers are now adults -- Mary-Elizabeth Gifford of Washington D.C., a former reporter for the East Hampton Star, Edwin Gifford Jr. of Washington, D.C., a photographer for the East Hampton Independent, and Tierney Horne, of London. His wife, Joan Thorne Gifford, also survives Gifford. His sons-in-law are Adam Horne of London and Uri Berliner of Washington, a former reporter for the Star now with NPR, National Public Radio. Two stepchildren and four step-grandchildren also survive him. The deceased had five grandchildren: Theresa Madeline Horne, Michael Elizabeth Horne, Charles Brooke Taylor Horne, and Benjamin Michael Berliner.

Hampton Bays Rebounds, Crushes Wyandanch By Rick Murphy Independent / Ross School

Kindergarten and second grade students from the Ross School examined various marine ecosystems and the animals that live in those systems during two separate field trips to local beaches on October 11.

Independent / Kristen Tulp

Kristen Tulp and Alison Fritzen’s kindergarten class at John Marshall Elementary School in East Hampton made spectacular glasses after reading one of one Marc Jacobs’ Arthur books.


THE EAST END’S SEPTIC SERVICE COMPANY FOR 80 YEARS

It didn’t take the Hampton Bays Baymen long to start another streak. A week after being dropped from the ranks of the unbeaten, Hampton Bays rebounded in a big way, jumping to a 47-0 halftime lead in route to a 54-0 thumping over Wyandanch Saturday. Taylor Catz had a big day on both sides of the ball, running for one score and twice returning punts to the house. Justin Carbone and Trey Kennedy also scored for the winners, who improved to 6-1 on the season. Wyandanch is 2-5. Carbone also threw for a score. Saturday is a critical day for the locals: Mount Sinai, also 6-1, comes east for a 2 PM matchup, and has a better power rating, 136.45, than Hampton Bays, 122.27. Both teams will make the playoffs, but the power ratings will be used to

determine seeding in the division IV playoffs. Mt. Sinai beat Bayport/ Blue Point 41-6 last Saturday. Mercy is perhaps the surprise team in the league, moving to 6-1 last Friday by besting Stony Brook 27-14 on the losers’ field. It wasn’t as close as it looks – the Monarchs opened up a 27-0 lead after three stanzas. Asaiah Wilson went 5 for 7 for 114 yards and threw for two TDs, and Reggie Archer did it on the ground to the tune of 162 yards and a touch. East Hampton will play at Mercy Friday evening at 7 PM. The Bonackers were no match for Glenn, falling 41-7 at the winners’ field. Glenn improved to 3-4 and kept its playoff hopes alive. Bonac, with a 2-5 mark, needs to upend Mercy to keep its slim hopes alive. In other division IV Center Moriches (1-6) bested winless CONTINUED on PAGE 32.

MindedSports By Pete Mundo

No Quick Fix For The Yanks Yankee fans are still scratching their heads following the recent postseason disappointment. While they might want to settle in and enjoy their Jets or Giants, this playoff run was too frustrating to quickly move on. The Yankees were historically bad at the plate, batting .188 in the postseason, an MLB worst for any team to play at least seven playoff games. Additionally, it was the first time the Yankees had been swept in the playoffs since the Royals swept them in the 1980 ALCS. Couple those numbers with the off the field drama, (see Rodriguez, Alex), and you had a recipe for turmoil in the Bronx. Not shockingly, many fans and even some pundits believe blowing up the Yanks will fix things overnight. Unfortunately, there is no overnight fix for this team. Alex Rodriguez has been a lightning rod on the Yankees for the last several years. I never thought I could muster the following

statement, but . . . I feel bad for A-Rod. A-Rod didn’t help the playoff cause, but he wasn’t the sole reason behind the failure. By sitting Rodriguez for the final couple games of the ALCS, the Yankee front office made him their scapegoat. But try and get the savvy fan to buy the “It’s all Alex’s fault” line. I believe most Yankee fans are too smart for that. They know the numbers, and understand the problem was far greater than Rodriguez. Of the nine Yankees with over 20 at bats this postseason, five batted below .200, and A-Rod wasn’t even the worst (Nick Swisher, .167, Russell Martin, .161, Rodriguez, .120, Curtis Granderson, .100, and Robinson Cano, .075). This was not simply an A-Rod choke job. As we knew all season long, this Yankee team was an old squad that relied heavily on the home run. Problem was, when the postseason rolled around and the best pitchers consistently got the ball, it wasn’t as

MEDICARE ELIGIBLE? What does it cover? What supplements are available? Finding it confusing?

www.indyeastend.com

easy to put the ball over the fence. Whether or not A-Rod stays in New York next year won’t make an enormous impact on the 2013 season. Some fans may believe he’s a clubhouse cancer, but all reports I’ve read say he’s fairly well liked in the locker room. Maybe the Marlins are a serious trade partner. But whether they trade him or not, the Yankees bid against themselves for A-Rod and have no one to blame for such an awful contract. The Yankees have decisions to make on free agents Andy Pettitte, Ichiro Suzuki, Hiroki Kuroda, Russell Martin, Nick Swisher, and Mariano Rivera. Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano each have options which are expected to be picked up. Regardless of what management decides with its free agents, the Yankees need to get younger. That doesn’t happen overnight with a farm system that appears to be overrated compared with what scouts thought it was a couple of years ago.

October 24, 2012

Signing Josh Hamilton and/or Zack Greinke would be a bad move for the Yankees. Think these current Yankees aren’t performing under the enormous pressure that comes with wearing pinstripes in October? Josh Hamilton is a .169 playoff hitter. Add in his personal struggles along with a $200 million contract, and you create a potential disaster in the Bronx. Greinke previously acknowledged psychological issues, and the stress of playing in New York certainly wouldn’t help those. This is one of the few times in GM Brian Cashman’s career that he can’t quick fix the Yanks. While some fans realized this day would come, I’m sure most were in denial. The Yankees should still be good enough to contend for a playoff spot. But Yankee fans might want to think beyond next season for World Championship number 28.
