AN ADDICT CONFESSES I remember when I first noticed it. I got on the elevator in the building that houses my advertising agency and pressed the elevator button for the 15th floor, just as I do every day. Started to look at my iPhone, just as everyone does whenever they get into an elevator. The elevator was crowded – I’m not positive about that but I had a sense that there were people all around me and someone was pushed against my right shoulder. Then I did it. I don’t know why but I took my eyes off of my iPhone and my head went up and the next thing I know my eyes met the eyes of this young woman. She must have raised her head from her iPhone at the same time and our eyes met. Of course we were both so embarrassed that we were looking at each other even for that half a second. Our eyes immediately went back to our iPhones. “God,” I thought to

myself, “I haven’t seen the face of another human being in an elevator for years.” No one I know has looked at another human in an elevator for such a long time that I actually felt creepy. “You’re an addict,” I said to myself. “You go to bed with your cell phone in your hand. It’s the first thing you look at when you wake up in the morning. But you’re not alone. There are millions out there just like you.” Then the other day as I sat in my car waiting for the light to change I took my eyes off my cell phone again. Honest, I did, I looked up and looked at the light and checked the traffic that was coming towards me. Was this a sign that my iPhone addiction was wearing off? Had I grown tired of reading those lurid email come-ons from young Russian women who write me every day that they can’t wait to get their hot hands on my ancient, fat body?

like it had been occupied by a thousand fireflies. I was seated in the middle of the theater and my ancient kidneys were calling to me. But I couldn’t make it to the men’s room because the aisles were clogged with glazeeyed people reading their messages. Just like those people who are so dumb they can’t chew gum and walk at the same time, these people were unable to read their phone texts and walk at the same time. If a fire had broken out they would not have moved. I imagined the last thing their eyes would see was a message about Russian hookers or Christian singles. Or a Salsa king named Charlie Zaa. By the time I reached the men’s room it was crowded with men reading email messages. Standing against a urinal was a tall distinguished-looking man. You all know what he had in his left hand, but in his right hand he held a cell phone to his ear. In a loud voice he said, “It’s a sinus infection. Give him a baby aspirin now and give me the name of your pharmacy and I will call in a prescription in the morning.” I prayed the good doctor washed his hands after he finished his business. A thought went through my mind. Can we get Nancy Reagan to do a campaign: “Just say no to electronic device addiction before 7/27/12 4:33 PM it’s too late”? “I fear the day when technology will surpass our humanity. The Your Home is Your world will then be populated by a Most Valuable Asset generation of idiots.” So trust a company that’s always here for you. --Albert Einstein If you wish to comment on “Jerry’s Ink” please send your message to jerry@ dfjp.com.

Was I giving up on those nice folks at the Christian singles website who were determined to find me “The right Christian for you?” Then the bling sound that my iPhone had just received a message went off. I jumped to attention. Driving 40 miles an hour with one eye on the road and the other on my iPhone to read a message that was informing me that something called The Conga Room was inviting me to a Salsa Extravaganza with someone named Charlie Zaa. I could only conclude I was as addicted as ever and I wondered, was the rest of the world as bad as I am? So I came up with a test. I walked five blocks on busy New York City streets to see if I could spot one person on every street who wasn’t carrying an iPhone or an iPod, or who wasn’t texting or receiving a text from their millions of nearest and dearest friends. The result? I could not find anyone on the street who didn’t have an electronic device in their hand. My conclusion was the whole world is addicted to their cell phones. The cell phone is the new drug of choice. The topper came the other night when I went to see the James Bond movie Skyfall. When the movie was over the entire crowd pulled out the cell phones that they had been deprived from using for two whole hours, IndependentAd_July12_Vert.pdf 1 and the darkened theater looked

Evicted Man Cries Foul

By Rick Murphy

There are those who work hard but can barely afford to pay rent around here, and there are those who rely on the Suffolk County Department of Social Services (DSS) to find housing for them, and taxpayers to pay for it. Nick Saridakis is learning the cold, hard truth: the county homeless trump him – he’s getting evicted from a Hampton Bays motel so Social Services can place its clients in his space. And the landlord, LAML Realty, certainly isn’t complaining – the county pays almost 50 percent more than the private sector does for the same room. For LAML, that means a cool $33,000 a month at capacity for the nondescript 32-unit motel it owns on West Tiana Road in Hampton Bays, The Hidden Cove. Taxpayers take a double hit: many of the residents are single mothers with children, who immediately become eligible for enrollment in the Hampton Bays School District. That means property owners there shell out $30,000 or so annually for each student, though students can opt to stay in their original school district and be transported to and from Hampton Bays every day on the taxpayer’s dime. “The number of homeless families have doubled, and the DSS has to do something,” said County Legislator Jay Schneiderman. “I can jump up and down about how bad it is but I can’t make it go away.” He said the goal is to find permanent housing for the tenants, and limit their stay at the Hidden Cove to 90 days if possible. Saridakis and a neighbor, an 87 year-old woman, have refused to give up their units, and are being evicted as a consequence. The bad news came for Saridakis Friday, when the court ordered him to vacate the premises. His neighbor and her daughter are due in court December 21. “They’re going to march her into court a few days before Christmas and throw her out of her home,” Saridakis said. Saridakis said the entire program is little more than “a scam.” Suffolk County pays a private company, Community Housing Innovations, to oversee its homeless shelter program. CHI is licensed to run numerous similar facilities on Long Island and Westchester. CHI gets paid handsomely. According to IRS filings the company grossed over $16 million in revenues in 2010, the last year filings were available. Its executive director earns $191,000 per year plus benefits; four

other executives in the firm have six figure salaries. Almost all the money comes from taxpayers, be it county, state or federal programs designed to help the homeless. “They are laughing all the way to the bank. It’s a racket,” said Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst. Alex Roberts, the executive director of CHI, strongly disagreed. “We have a so-called ‘cost contract’ with the county, which means that every expenditure must be documented and approved under the county’s eligible cost manual. Our books are audited every year by an independent auditor and if there are any surpluses, they are returned

to the county,” he said. “The motel is overcrowded, and its septic system is hopelessly outdated. It can’t contain the flow. There are compliance and environmental issues,” ThroneHolst said. She is meeting with County Executive Steve Bellone about it this week.

Neighbors are upset as well. Over 200 people jammed into a Concerned Citizens of Hampton Bays meeting Throne-Holst attended. “Local residents are being displaced, and these kids are in our schools,” Throne-Holst said. “We understand they are having a hard time making Continued on Page 26.

Consider Stretch Zone Change By Kitty Merrill

Tonight East Hampton town planners are expected to continue discussion of a zone change request for a property on the Napeague Stretch, the site of the popular Cyril’s Fish House. The town board is imbued with the power to grant zone change requests, but it’s standard procedure to solicit input from the planning board in making a determination as to whether to give the green light. Once planners finish providing their insight, town board members will have their own discussion, then host a public hearing for community members to weigh in. Back in 2010 planning department staff prepared a memo for the town board outlining aspects of the request made by property owner Michael Dioguardi. The applicant asked to change the zoning on two parcels – the one where Cyril’s sits and an adjacent vacant piece to the immediate west. Both are currently zoned A: Residence; the applicant wants to change it to Neighborhood Business. The restaurant on the site was constructed prior to the adoption

of zoning, and the most recent certificate of occupancy for the property dates back to 1969. Since then, according to a memo prepared by the town planning department, “a number of other additions, site improvements and structures have been built without the necessary permits.” Over the years the property has been the subject of a number of applications to both the planning board and the zoning board of appeals in an effort to legalize already-built additions and new structures on the site. A memo from the chief building inspector in 2009 listed 15 separate structures that were not legally pre-existing, including a gravel seating area with a total of 60 additional seats. The current bar fronts on Montauk Highway, and during the summer patrons actually imbibe their libations and congregate in the highway right-of-way. A total of 26 area variances would be required to bring the property up to code. The memo states there are “significant obstacles” to the granting of the zone change request. Beyond the volume of code violations on the site, there’s the

question of the impact the change would have on the surrounding neighborhood. The planners’ memo notes only one other property along the Stretch was granted a similar downzoning. As part of a land swap with the town several years ago, the Lobster Roll parcel was designated Neighborhood Business. Only four other properties along the Stretch are commercially zoned; they’re resort uses, for condos and motels. Another eight properties comprise

pre-existing commercial uses in residentially zoned areas. The bulk of the Napeague Stretch was zoned for parks and conservation and low density residential in the early 1980s. The planning board began discussion of the zone change last week, but reached a consensus among members. They wanted additional time to consider myriad facets of the application as well as input from the property owner’s attorneys. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Biz Alliance Supports Deer Plan By Kitty Merrill

They were on the horns of a dilemma. During the 2009 campaign, when people in East Hampton weren’t talking about the fiscal crisis, they were talking about deer. That’s how Councilman Dominick Stanzione remembers it. “It seemed the most consistent question from citizens was, ‘Why hasn’t the town done anything about deer management?’” he said this week. Once elected, the lawmaker recalled, “I took the issue up, formed a deer management working group, and set out to develop a plan that was comprehensive, effective and compassionate.”

Tomorrow night, members of the “Needless to say we are pleased that public will have the chance to weigh Councilman Stanzione has taken in on a proposal Stanzione describes the lead on this and developed a as “the first definitive response to three to five year plan that addresses this problem,” she the emerging deer “The deer (over) population offered. emergency.” Turner believes, “Is it perfect?” he must be addressed, and must “The increase in queried rhetorically. be addressed now” the number of “No. That’s why accidents and tick we’re having a public hearing.

done immediately,” she predicted. The number of deer twin sets being born has increased, she said, and there will not be sufficient food to sustain the deer population, as well as other animals that need vegetation to survive. Turner listed “the blight of deer fences” as a threat to farm and open space vistas. EHBA worries the unsightly fences will continue to proliferate as more and more homeowners attempt to protect their properties. “Our vistas are critical to our economy and need to be protected - open and fenceless,” she said. Opponents to assertions made in the plan – that deer overpopulation relates to increased tick-borne illnesses – have argued against the use of lethal measures, such as culling herds. Turner said EHBA is not averse to measures like contraceptives, road reflectors, and reduced speed limits. “We support these and other methods to maintain the population once it is under control,” she said. Trouble is, deer meat harvested through culling is donated to local food banks, but the state department of environmental conservation won’t allow venison treated with contraceptives to be donated, nor does the DEC acknowledge the use of contraceptives as a form of deer control.   “A study done back in 2006 on the average deer density that our land could support showed an already overpopulation of deer, by almost double,” Turner said. “Now six and a half years later, that number has gotten much worse.” “The deer (over) population must be addressed, and must be addressed now,” she concluded. Stanzione agreed. “The health and safety of our community depends on our taking action,” he said. Before any of the suggested population mitigation measures may be taken, the plan calls for a survey to derive an accurate count. The town board’s recently adopted 2013 budget includes funding for the study. Tomorrow’s hearing will be held at 7 PM at town hall. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Beach Project Gets Green Light By Emily Toy

Last week, the Southampton Town Board approved the $26 million beach renourishment project . . . finally. After months of research, work sessions and discussions, the board unanimously gave the project to rebuild the ocean beaches in Water Mill, Bridgehampton and Sagaponack the green light, with the next step being a public referendum scheduled for some time after the New Year. The project began picking up significant steam after Hurricane Sandy, which changed the appearance of the beaches dramatically. “Needless to say, this project took on a level of urgency,” Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst said, with respect to the super storm. Homeowners with ocean front properties on the stretch of beach from Flying Point Road off Mecox Bay in Water Mill to Town Line Road in Sagaponack, 125 in all, will be paying the bulk of the project’s tab. The property owners also agreed to cover half of the town’s portion of the cost, totaling another $1.5 million, should the project get passed. Throne-Holst said the town’s own $1.5 million expense will come out of a special park district fund, meaning it will have a zero-impact on taxpayers outside the erosion control districts. “That was a critical component of this,” said Councilman Chris Nuzzi, “to have no impact on town residents’ taxes.” With the $1.5 million from the town, 2.5 million tons of sand will be distributed onto the ocean beaches, with the hope of adding another 60

Should the project be approved in the referendum, which will be administered by the Suffolk County Board of Elections, the town will bond for the project and pay it back over a 10-year period through the

If passed, ground could be broken on the project as early as next summer, so that the new beachhead could be in place before another hurricane or nor’easter happens. “One of the benefits of this project is the beach renourishment is happening in a regional manner, in a coordinated way,” Shea said.

More Sandy Help

By Kitty Merrill

For the most part, the East End dodged the Super Storm Sandy bullet. But for those who do have to repair damage or rebuild, things just got a little less onerous. On Monday, County Executive Steve Bellone announced the health department will waive rebuilding fees and expedite the building review process for businesses and residences victimized by the storm.

Department of Health Services application and permit fees both will be waived for eligible victims. However, as property owners begin rebuilding, the Washington, D. C.-based Coalition Against Insurance Fraud warned homeowners to be alert to “storm–chasing contractors” who typically descend on disaster areas. Storm chasers typically go doorto-door seeking business. They’re

often from out of state, incompetent and unlicensed. They intend to cheat anxious homeowners who urgently need repairs after the storm, CAIF officials reported. Homeowners could lose thousands of dollars to contractor scams. Shoddy repairs can also take months to correct, making it harder for homeowners to put their lives back together again. The coalition’s announcement listed scams to avoid. They include the contractor demanding a large cash payment up front (He’ll disappear after getting the dough), or actually creating more damage than there was to increase the cost

of the work. (Nicking undamaged sidewall or roof shingles with a screwdriver or enlarging a hole in the roof to mimic damage are ways a contractor might inflate a bill.) Some shady contractors may offer to pay your insurance deductible to get your business quickly, and lure you into fraudulent work. CAIF notes several ways to protect against potential fraud: • Avoid door-to-door contractors. These usually are the storm chasers who canvass damaged neighborhoods for repair jobs. All too often these contractors have fraudulent repairs in mind.  • Contact your state and local licensing agencies to ensure the contractor is licensed.  • Work with your insurance company. Contact your insurer right away to help screen out scam artists. Work closely with your insurer throughout the claim process to assess the damage, determine what repairs are covered, and the cost. Get the right repairs done, and done right.  • Watch for red flags. No business cards or referrals, a P.O. Box instead of a street address, a van that looks rundown and has no company name on it, an inability to show proof of workers compensation insurance or surety/performance bond.  • Insist on a contract. Have a signed contract specifying exactly what work will be done, plus the price and repair schedule. Never sign a contract with blanks.  • Contact local Better Business Bureau. Does the contractor have a history of complaints? See if the contractor has a BBB review. In other Super Storm Sandyrelated news, the Suffolk County Legislature’s Public Safety and Economic Development and Energy committees will hold a joint public hearing on Post Sandy response Assessment tomorrow at 6 PM at their digs in Smithtown. The purpose of the public hearing is to give the public an opportunity to express their concerns regarding the overall response to the Super Storm Sandy relief efforts. The public will have a chance to express any grievances related to Sandy, and offer recommendations for future storm preparation.  After the Public hearing, a followup meeting will be scheduled so all county departments, agencies, and companies involved in the post Sandy relief may respond to the public concerns and comment.

RICK’S SPACE Falalalala You Deck the halls with boughs of freaking holly. I used to look for ward to Christmas. In those days it was a toy fest. Mom would take me to sit on Santa’s lap at Macy’s and I’d tell him what I wanted. Then, I would make a list and send it to Santa at the North Pole. And just to be sure I believed in Santa, Mom would let me mail the letter at the post office. Not that I had any doubts, mind you, I mean hell, I was only 19. Christmas was a win-win back then. I’d get a pile of toys, even if my parents each had to work two jobs to afford them. In return, I would get Mom a box of scented talcum powder from Einhorn’s Drug Store for two bucks. I did this because she always had a box in her bathroom, so I deduced she must really like it. In truth, she never used it, but put the box there every Christmas,

throwing out the old one. Similarly, dad would get a box of handkerchiefs or a tie. He never used the hankies and he never wore the tie. In fact, he never took them from the boxes. Somewhere along the line, though, the tides shift. At some point Christmas becomes an incredibly expensive proposition, and you’re on the losing end. I knew my time had come when I bought my daughter Anna about $500 worth of toys and she gave me a tie and a box of handkerchiefs. Ouch. Remember Cabbage Patch dolls? I do, because Anna had to have one for Christmas one year – that was the year that Cabbage Patch dolls were in such demand parents were fighting for them and stores jacked up the price to $100. I personally had to stab two other parents at Kmart in Bridgehampton

in order to get Anna the doll. After a couple days I noticed she wasn’t playing with it. “What happened to the Cabbage Patch doll?” I inquired. “You got me an ugly one,” Anna said. “They’re all ugly,” I replied. Goodbye one hundred bucks. One year she wanted My Little Pony. The selling point on this plastic piece of crap was it supposedly had real hair the kids could brush. I got Anna the My Little Pony, the My Little Stable, My Little Barnyard Animals, and every other My Little piece of crap I could buy or steal including My Little Hairbrush. Within two days it was under her bed, never to be seen again – I found out later she cut the hair off to see if it would grow back. Nowadays Christmas to me means presents for assorted nieces and nephews, all of whom insist there is a Santa. The net result of their belief is that I spend the money and Santa gets all the credit. Plus, their parents are getting picky. Everyone yelled at me for getting little Adelia a bong last year – I mean, the little brat is eight already – the thing will come in handy someday. I don’t want to deck the halls with holly or the walls with jolly or whatever the hell you do. I don’t want my mother kissing Santa under the mistletoe, especially if he looks anything like that pervert at Macy’s. I don’t want a White Christmas, because I spend half the day on the road driving to and from my in-laws’ house. I do have a tree down in my basement, an artificial one we bought years ago. I also have

Christmas lights, tinsel, a box filled with ornaments, and an angel with cotton wings to put on the top of the tree. I stopped putting the tree up after the first year, though, because not only do I have to put it up, I have to take it down. This prompted a bitter argument in our house, as weeks turned into months and the winter came and went with the tree still in the living room. “When are you going to take that damn thing down,” Karen would ask. ”What? The Easter Tree? “It’s not an Easter tree,” Karen said. “I’ll take the angel down and put a crucifix up there. Look, I bought a Pontius Pilate ornament.” Finally, August came. That meant the year was more than half way over. In other words, Christmas was just around the corner. Anyhow, there is nothing like sitting around the tree wearing bathing suits and suntan oil – it really puts you in a Christmasy mood. Iced eggnog, anyone? We’re already getting Christmas cards. They say stuff like, “On this joyous holiday we wish your family peace and happiness” and it’s signed “The McDougalds” or whatever. Sometimes there is a picture, the parents with their smiley children. Even the family dog is smiling. Yet in real life you know those kids are brats and the dog is incontinent. A little part of us wants to believe that guy in the red suit and white beard really does exist, somewhere. Bong or no bong, ‘tis the season. We might as well get all up in it.

EDITORIAL It Could Happen In Your Neighborhood Every citizen on the East End should pay close attention to what has happened at the Hidden Cove Motel in Hampton Bays, because it could happen in your neighborhood. The motel was probably built to house sun seekers during the summer, but over the years more and more year-rounders set up shop there, mostly because it was affordable for lower-income citizens. The rooms are tiny -- about 250 square feet, according to one resident -- and the rents were less than $800 a month. But the landlord found a much better deal – the Suffolk County Department of Social Services (DSS) was willing to pay far more per unit. Better still, the DSS provided a steady stream of income by filling virtually all of the 32 units every month. The combined monthly rent: a tidy $33,000. The trouble, according to Southampton town officials, is that the building, particularly the on-site septic system, was never meant to handle that kind of year-round occupancy. The county uses the motel to house homeless families, often three or four to a room. The company that manages the units for the county makes a healthy profit – the more family members in a room, the more money from the county. That company, Community Housing Initiatives, has applied to the state to have the Hidden Cove Motel classified as a registered homeless shelter. If its request is

Deer Management Plan Dear Rick, I’d like to remind your readers about

granted, it will be immune from local zoning laws. There was a small problem though – some of the local people there didn’t want to leave – so the county threatened to evict them. Friday, one of the two remaining tenants lost his court case. That leaves an 87-year old woman and her daughter as the only residents NOT paid for by social services – and they are being evicted as well. The Concerned Citizens of Hampton Bays are up in arms, and well they should be. Most of the new residents of the motel aren’t from the town, yet they now live here legally, and many of their children are in the local school system. Taxpayers pay for it all. Yet those residents who preferred to pay their own freight were unceremoniously dumped into the streets. The man evicted Friday? He’ll soon be homeless, and as such can apply to the social services for emergency housing. The net result? Instead of paying his own rent, the taxpayers will be on the hook for it – plus a healthy stipend for the management company, which is “laughing all the way to the bank,” as one town official said. Yes, we have an obligation to help the homeless – but there are plenty of local families that need help. Unscrupulous landlords are drawn to the DSS because the rents are generous and the checks arrive on time. It’s not just motels – Section 8 housing is another example. More landlords should consider doing what’s best for neighbors and the local community. Each municipality should take care of its homeless, but none should be forced to take on more than their fair share.

the public hearing this Thursday at 7 PM in Town Hall on the proposed Deer Management Plan. The EHBA has been lobbying the town to address the deer over-population for over four years and thank Councilman Stanzione for his hard work on this. The Deer Management Plan will determine the deer numbers (needed to evaluate if the plan is working); calls for methods to reduce the herd numbers and then offers suggestions on ways to maintain a sustainable level. We encourage the community to speak at the hearing Thursday night. If one is unable to attend please contact the town board and/or the town clerk with your support for this important Deer Management Plan. The town needs to hear from us!

Sponsor An Animal

Dear Rick, This holiday season, please consider extending your compassion and generosity to poor people and exhausted animals in India by becoming an Animal Rahat sponsor. (“Rahat” means “relief” in Hindi.) Throughout India, thousands of bullocks, horses, and donkeys are forced to pull heavy carts for miles. Many suffer from muscle strain and painful sores. The exhausted animals are disturbingly thin and dehydrated because they’re often not given enough food or water. To help these animals, Animal Rahat employees have installed water tanks around the main towns and designed screens that can be attached to the carts and used as shelter against the sun, or as a blanket in winter. Animal Rahat veterinarians inoculate the animals against Continued on page 16.

Idy Sherer I’m starting to feel the spirit. Some of the stores are decorated so beautifully and the holiday music is playing. I’m looking forward to the holiday. We celebrate with 25 to 30 people. A big crowd. Lots of kids. And they’re always so excited. They make it fun. Joseph Phair I’m certainly feeling it. I have grandkids and they always put me into a festive mood at this time of year. And now, as they make up their Santa lists, they’re trying to be nice and not naughty.

A few examples: Despite their self-created financial crises Goldman Sachs received a Government bailout of $10 billion while at the same time received an $814 billion near zero interest rate, Federal Reserve loan. I believe it’s called shrewd business rather than theft. While in 2011, earnings at Goldman Sachs fell 14 percent, he rewarded himself with a raise from $16 million to $17 million. I guess that’s called incentive rather than finagling.

And then in 2008 he managed to get Goldman Sachs a $278 million refund from the IRS after earning a profit of $2.3 billion the same year. And I suppose that’s called creative bookkeeping or keen negotiating rather than lying. Let us hope that Mr. Blankfein’s remedy to have the 98 or 99 percenters, the “lazy people” pay for his and his ilk’s financial mess falls on deaf ears. NICHOLAS ZIZELIS

Dear Rick, We were privileged last week to have a self appointed representative of Wall Street, visit Capital Hill to voice his expert opinion, that we should enact cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid to aid in the impact of the financial disaster, for which they, Wall Street, were virtually responsible. What unmitigated gall. This greedy pig who earned $16 million last year and together with his fellow pen-mates, were bailed out by the very middle class for whom he is requesting cuts in welfare; those earning $14,000 a year. His name is Lloyd Blankfein and he is the CEO of Goldman Sachs, although he represents the mindset of the predominant (although not all) number of the 1 and 2 percenters, the “hard workers.” He feels that we should “lower people’s expectations” about their retirement and health care. He gives new meaning to the word “Calloused.”

Shinnecock Restoration Begins Work to replenish the badly-eroded beaches west of Shinnecock Inlet and Tiana Beach has begun, using sand dredged from the inlet, according to a press release from Congressman Tim Bishop’s office last Friday. The work includes a previously approved project to restore the beach west of the inlet to its pre Hurricane Irene condition by adding 128,000 cubic yards of sand. An additional 115,000 cubic yards will be dredged from the inlet and placed in the vicinity of Tiana Beach. All work will be performed under the supervision of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers by Great Lakes Dock and Dredge of Illinois. All work is expected to be completed within three weeks, weather permitting, according to the Army Corps. Funding for the beach restoration was secured by State Senator Ken LaValle and Assemblyman Fred Thiele through the New York Works Program. “This work is now, more than ever, critically important to protect our shoreline from further erosion,” LaValle said.

Armed Robbers & Senior Stealers, Suspected

By Kitty Merrill

While their peers were home reading the latest edition of Modern Maturity or getting ready for the early bird special, cops say two area senior citizens were planning a heist. According to a news release from the Southampton Town Police, on November 29, the pair of

60-somethings targeted a Hampton Bays auto repair shop and made off with a $500 engine block. For the automotively illiterate, an engine block can weigh anywhere between 500 and 1000 pounds. The suspected cadging codgers used an engine hoist to lift the block onto a pickup truck during the early morning hours before the shop

opened. Police believe the twosome then sold the block as scrap metal. By the next day, cops caught up with the first perp, a 62-yearold Riverside man. Last Saturday, they picked up the second fellow, a Flanders habitué. Both suspects were charged with misdemeanor petit larceny.

Also last week, STPD announced the arrest of a trio of suspected armed robbers. They say Larry M. Moore, 17, Erick C. Darden, 19, and Arnell Nash, 21, all Riverhead residents, were the robbers who hit the Valero Gas Station and Convenience Store on Route 24 in Riverside on Halloween night. According to the police release, three men dressed in dark clothing, wearing masks and displaying guns, entered the business just after 8:30 PM and stole about $270 from the cash register, before fleeing the scene. Town police responded, along with the Riverhead and county Sheriff K-9 Units, plus the state troopers, to the scene. They’re collaborating with counterparts from Riverhead, Southold, the sheriff’s department, county police and the East End Drug Task Force to investigate an additional three armed robberies that took place in the area – the Spirit Halloween Store on Route 58 in Riverhead was robbed by two gun-toting masked men on October 20; on November 7, Bart’s Pharmacy in Riverhead was hit by a trio of masked miscreants, and on November 19, three men wearing masks robbed a gas station in Mattituck. Last Wednesday the Southampton Town Police Dive Team spent several hours, without success, in the murky waters of the Peconic River near the traffic circle in Riverside looking for proceeds of the Valero crime and possibly an involved weapon. According to Lieutenant Lisa Costa, further attempts will be made to recover the evidence. “These crimes are still under active investigation and updates will be made as they evolve,” she said. Anyone with information may call STPD detectives at 631-702-2230. All calls are kept confidential. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

As for the Southampton Town zoning issues, if the state approves the motel as a homeless shelter, it will be exempt from the town’s zoning regulations – thus the rush to evict rent-paying tenants. Saridakis said he was set up. “I signed an agreement to move out and found another place. I asked for a letter of recommendation and they wouldn’t give me one.” Saridakis suspects CHI played hardball with him because he publicly complained he was being forced out. He said his elderly neighbor, who he didn’t identify by name, was “paralyzed by the rent increase. She was crying.” The county pays CHI almost $5000 a month for a single mother with two children, Saridakis said. The family itself receives only a

faction of the allowance. “It’s like a prison,” Saridakis said of the motel. “The rooms are tiny, about 250 square-feet, and many have four cots jammed into them to accommodate tenants.” The family only gets about $400 spending money a month, Saridakis guessed, leaving a chunk of taxpayer money for CHI. “It’s a sanctimonious hustle. The county is its cash machine.” “We lease the efficiencies as anyone else would. The rate we pay (about $40 per day) amounts to less than half the cost of renting a motel room, which makes Hidden Cove more cost-effective for county taxpayers,” Roberts countered. “Since they have kitchens, the residents cook for themselves and the county does not have to pay a restaurant allowance.” Saridakis is waiting for the county sheriff to formally evict him. “And then I’ll be homeless.” And therein lies the rub: he will then be eligible for county aid, and taxpayers might well end up paying his rent.

S chool D ays submitted by local schools

Students in the Anti-Bullying Club at Roanoke talk about their effort to prevent bullying of their schoolmates. The Gay-Straight Alliance of East Hampton High School held a bake sale last week.

Roanoke Avenue Elementary Morgan Dunn doesn’t like bullying. An after school television program and a book she read in class called The Hundred Dresses by Eleanor Estes inspired this Roanoke third grader to do something about it. During the first week of school, Morgan went to speak to the principal, Thomas Payton. “I want to start a no bullying club at school, and he said, ‘That’s a great idea.’” The club is composed of 14 students from Donna Verbeck’s class, who meet with Shannon Kutner, the Community Awareness Program (CAP) social worker. “Morgan inspired this project,” said Kutner, “and her inspiration motivated her classmates to join with her in this effort to prevent bullying.” The kids give up lunch and recess time every other week to meet and discuss ways to prevent bullying at Roanoke Avenue Elementary School. “We play games in our club that make us think about how to prevent bullying and stop it when we see it in our school,” explains Rebecca Siemers. “Each person draws a piece of paper out of a jar, and then we talk about the sentence written on the paper, which is about a situation that might lead to bullying.” “We’ve also made anti-bullying posters and put them up in the hallway,” said Jackson Loper. “It has really made a difference in our school. I’d say we’ve pretty much wiped out bullying at Roanoke. I’ve been bullied in the past, but I learned that if someone bullies you, be kind to them. That usually stops it.” John M. Marshall Elementary The fourth grade chorus holiday concert will be held the same night as the fifth grade band orchestra concert, on Thursday, Dec. 13. Selections will include “Amani Utupe

(Grant Us Peace, Give Us Courage),” “The First Snow,” “Lo Yissa Goy (Nations Will Not Rise Up Against Nations, They Will No Longer Study War),” and “A Jingle Bell Christmas.” The performance will take place at 7 PM. The groups will also perform the next morning at the all school meeting at 9 AM. The giving tree is standing in the main hall by Teresa Talmage’s desk. Those who would like to help out a family in need can select a candy cane off the tree and return a wrapped gift by Dec. 10. Parent volunteers are needed to help with the holiday sale on Tuesday, Dec. 11 through Thursday, Dec. 13. Those who can assist are asked to contact the PTA at jmmespta@gmail.com. At the sale, students will have an opportunity to shop for holiday gifts for their immediate family. Items are needed for the sale as well including but not limited to candles, picture frames, mugs, knick-knacks, books and toys.

East Hampton Middle School The sixth grade will hold its winter concert tonight. To continue the holiday spirit, tomorrow is the day when those who have ordered them can pick up their PTA wreaths between 2:30 and 5 PM. And on Tuesday, the seventh and eighth grades will join in song for their winter concert at 7 PM. The Yearbook Club is up and running, and needs support from students who love to write and take pictures. Contact Bridget LeRoy in the high school for more information, and listen for morning announcements about where and when the meetings will be held. East Hampton High School The high school has been holding a book drive all week for Island Park schools, whose classroom libraries were decimated by Super Storm

Sandy. Parents, students, and staffs are donating gently used children’s books for the cause. The East Hampton High School orchestra will be bringing its talent to John Marshall all school meeting for a concert on Friday. The Gay-Straight Alliance held a bake sale last Thursday, and raised over $150 for the Ali Forney Center in Manhattan. The Ali Forney Center, which helps LGBTQ homeless teens, was destroyed in Superstorm Sandy. Thursday, Dec. 13, is sushi day in the school cafeteria. A sushi-making expert will be there during lunch hours to create custom rolls for students and staff. Wednesday, Dec. 19, will start off with the last principal/parent breakfast of the year at 8 AM this one focusing on freshmen. The student association will hold a blood drive that day from 7:30 AM to 1 PM and the day will end with the much-anticipated high school Holiday Concert in the auditorium at 7 PM.

Tuckahoe School With the assistance of librarian, Mrs. Laurie Verdeschi, Mrs. Korey Tietjen’s 5th grade class was able to Skype with one of their classmates who recently moved to the Philippines. He moved during the power outages after the hurricane, and they never got an opportunity to say good-bye. The Philippines is 13 hours ahead of New York, so timing was everything. He told them of Philippine heroes, his school experiences, his school day, and of his new found interest in Taekwondo. They cannot wait to Skype again! The PTO Penguin Patch Holiday Shoppe will be open on December 5th, 6th & 7th. The Holiday Concert for pre-kindergarten to 3rd Grade will be on Monday, December 17. Third graders will play flutaphones and, yes . . . pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and 1st graders are performing! This year’s Holiday Concert for 4-8 Grade Choruses and 5-8 grade Band will be held on December 18. Tuckahoe’s Student Council is sponsoring a “Holiday Giving Tree.”

storm, news like this can make an already tough process even more difficult. I go to a private boarding school in Massachusetts, and it’s expensive. For this year, my school has granted 30 percent of the student body some sort of financial aid. That’s a good start, don’t get me wrong, but there are still some pretty large bills to be paid (my parents are constantly reminding me of this fact). How many families can afford the tab for private school, with kids who haven’t even yet

reached college? Is this opportunity or selectivity? My parents have always told me that the earlier I start thinking about college, the better off I’ll be. But how am I supposed to know who I am, or what I want to do for a living in the future? These are big questions that other people my age might similarly not know the answer to. Already almost two months into junior year, I’m making decisions that will influence my life for years to come. That can be quite scary when you look at it. If that doesn’t sound intimidating, what about the universal obsession with grades? This is always a struggle for a good amount of students, myself included. I’ve heard from both college counselors and older students that grades are more important than ever during

by Sergei Klebnikov

In a recent Time magazine, the cover story about the changing nature of college education has a somewhat daunting statistic: only 3 percent of students in the country’s top 146 colleges are from the bottom fourth of the economic spectrum. Is this fair for kids of the current generation? Time has also reported that student-loan debt has topped $900 billion. Does our country’s way of getting kids into college need an overhaul?

junior year. At my school, it is recommended to have a solid 85 average (honors). But what happens if you are below that magic number? Will your life end? Does this mean you’re going to be stuck working at McDonald’s in the future? Another stressful issue is the dilemma of whether to take AP classes or not. The big question is to either take an AP course and deal with a lower grade for the class, or to instead take the normal level course and get a higher grade at a time where a student’s grades matter more than ever. Starting AP US history this year was a complete nightmare initially, from the moment I was handed back a 66 percent on our first assessment in the class. I was persuaded by college counselors to stay in the class, and I’ve gradually clawed my way back up to the B range, but some kids in other classes weren’t so lucky, and there were several people who dropped their AP courses. Hearing about all the competition to get into college and the importance of good grades can be extremely stressful at times, and I’m sure that many other students share the same burden as I have so far this year. A lot of kids distract themselves from the stress by making sure to maintain a good amount of down time to relax amidst chaotic amounts of work. I’ve always been a fan of making sure that I get enough downtime in the midst of all my work, and for me that includes either hanging out with friends, watching my favorite TV shows, or the occasional exciting FIFA match against a friend. I’ve always believed that this kind of downtime is essential to my survival, especially at this point in high school. The key, as my elders constantly tell me, is to find a balance – between academics, sports, and social life. Two months into school I’m already diving right into the college process. At my school, we have already had several introductory meetings with college counselors. I’m also signed up for an SAT prep class offered by my school, which meets once a week and assigns homework. People I’ve talked to vary in their opinions about the class, so I’ll just have to find out how helpful it will be for me personally. So far I’ve gotten through the initial stages of the whole process. Hopefully, I’ll survive . . .

Riverhead Falls In LI Title Game By Rick Murphy

The Riverhead Blue Waves will have to be content with the Suffolk County Division II title. S a t u r d a y, t h e l o c a l s c a m e tantalizingly close to capturing the Long Island title. In fact, Riverhead took a 16-7 lead into the locker room at halftime against Garden City, the Nassau II champ. At the time, things were rolling along right on schedule – the Waves potent offense was moving the ball and its underrated defense stymied the Trojans. But a half does not a football game make. Riverhead drew first blood when quarterback Ryan Blitzer -- who enjoyed a wondrous season – found Jaron Greenidge in the first quarter with a six yard scoring strike, though the point after attempt failed. Garden City quarterback Brett Stewart responded, leading the Trojans downfield and nailing a 28 yarder to Ed Blatz for a 7-6 lead. Riverhead retaliated behind

the powerful running of Jeremiah Cheatom, who scored on a one-yard plunge. Devrim Kucuk added a 35yard field goal in the second quarter. The Garden City team that emerged from the tunnel at LaValle Stadium at Stony Brook proved to be an entirely different animal than the one that retired there at halftime. Cheatom, who had run wild in the first half (198 yards), found the going tough as the undersized Trojans stacked the line and gang tackled. Blitzer tried to respond through the air, but was able to complete only 9 of his 19 attempts.

Stewart, meanwhile, had the hot hand on the other side of the ball. He hit Blatz with a 23 yarder in the third quarter to narrow the gap to 16-14, and then scored again on a bootleg later in the quarter to put the Trojans up for good. He scored again in the fourth to seal the deal. The final was 27-16. On the day Stewart threw for 199, ran for 140, and accounted for all four touchdowns for the winners, who finished at 11-1. Greenidge finished with three catches good for 37 yards for Riverhead (9-3). Cheatom tallied 224 rushing yards on the afternoon.

MindedSports By Pete Mundo

Wright Gives Mets Direction Most of the time, when fall turns to winter, Yankee fans are still discussing their team’s post-season exploits, while Mets fans are lost in the fog wondering what the future may bring. The fog cleared a bit for Mets fans this year, as the announcement came late last week that New York has locked up its All-Star third baseman, David Wright, for eight years at a cost of $138 million. The move was a sign from ownership that David Wright is the player

they trust to be the face of their franchise for the future. Some Mets fans are frustrated with the move, wondering whether or not all that cash could have been spent to build up several areas of the team. I’ve often been critical of the Mets for their personnel moves, but this is one I can easily get behind. The contract with David Wright is more about what he provides outside the lines. In a time when athletes are heavily scrutinized for

their off the field actions, Wright has been one of the good guys. We can debate how clutch he may be or whether he is truly a franchise player, but his ability to be a positive face of the franchise is not debatable. I believe the Wilpons see this and want Wright to be an ambassador for the team long after his playing days are over, much like Tom Seaver was. As for Wright’s on the field ability, it’s not realistic to think he can be the guy that hit .325 with 30 home runs, 107 RBIs, and 34 stolen bases in 2007. His stats won’t average close to this over the life of his new deal. But if he can give the boys in Queens consistent production like last year (.306, 21 home runs, 93 RBIs, 15 SBs), it’s a good deal. Wright will be a great role model on this team as the younger players come up from the farm system. For

the Mets, who have struggled on and off the field, establishing the franchise’s character may be just as important as finding quality talent. With Sandy Alderson and crew down in Nashville for the winter meetings, hopefully the name R.A. Dickey will keep coming up in trade rumors. Unlike Wright, who is younger and more expensive, Dickey has a smaller window at a cheaper price. Had a deal fallen through for Wright, there most likely would have only been a couple of trade options. Teams will be lining up for Dickey -- big money teams looking for an ace or number 2, and midmarket teams who think Dickey can continue to be Cy Young caliber at less than Cy Young money. The opportunity to trade Dickey for a couple pieces to help the Mets contend in a year or two should be too tempting to pass up. The David Wright extension should give East End Met fans a reason to believe the Wilpons are more committed to spending than originally thought. That being said, Wright will need quality players around him to make his signing worthwhile. Otherwise, the Mets spent a lot of money for a mascot. Extending a 29 year-old player eight years leads me to believe that Alderson believes he has the ability to field a competitive team by 2014. And if that’s not the case, chalk it up to more wasteful spending that will make even harder to ever fill Citi Field again.
