Pursue Medal Of Honor For Haerter By Kitty Merrill

Less than three months ago, Joi Jackson Perle started an online petition drive that’s gained close to 40,000 signatures. Her goal? A Congressional Medal of Honor for local hero and son of Sag Harbor Jordan Haerter. On Sunday a crowd gathered at the American Legion Chelberg & Battle Post 388 on Bay Street learned of a measure that will give a big guns boost to the effort. Last week Congressman Tim Bishop introduced legislation requesting a presidential review of Haerter’s heroism. Haerter, a Marine Corps Lance Corporal was ser ving during Operation Iraqi Freedom along with Corporal Jonathan Yale, a native of Virginia in 2008 when confronted with a “life or death” decision. They chose life for the people they were charged with protecting, and death for themselves. Both young men were killed defending a security station in the Sophia district of Ramadi. When a suicide bomber in a truck refused to stop, the two Marines opened fire. The ensuing blast claimed their lives and saved

the lives of dozens of Marines and Iraqi policemen in the compound. LCpl Haerter and Cpl Yale were posthumously awarded the Navy Cross Medal, the highest honor awarded by the Department of the Navy. They received a plethora of additional accolades, including the Purple Heart, Combat Action Ribbon, and the National Defense Medal. The Sag Harbor/North Haven Bridge was named for the hometown hero. On Sunday, Bishop explained his measure, sponsored in collaboration with his counterpart in Yale’s hometown, Congressman Robert Hurt, will begin the process o f d e te rmi n i n g w het h er t h e two heroes are eligible for the Congressional Medal of Honor. “Each of us has a duty to bear witness to the lives of men and women who pay the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom,” Bishop said. “Part of that duty is to ensure that the proper honors are bestowed upon them.” His legislation will allow for “every possible consideration for their incredible, incredible acts of heroism,” the congressman said.

Veteran and Commander of the James F. Brengel American Legion Post 456 in Seacliff, said he feels “a moral imperative” in the pursuit of the Medal of Honor for LCpl Haerter and Cpl Yale. Speaking passionately at the podium Sunday, Como reflected on “the course of so many lives” that were changed because of the young men’s split second decision to sacrifice themselves. “We should take great pride in the fact that we are taking this moment to say ‘We’re never going to forget,’” he told a crowd comprised of scouts, vets, family and friends. LCpl Haerter’s mother JoAnn Lyles and his father Christian Haerter both expressed gratitude to the congressman for filing the bill, as well as the legions of community members and supporters who have, as Bishop said, “embraced the family like only a small town can.” Also on hand for Sunday’s announcement was Assemblyman Fred Thiele. He said, “In Sag Harbor, we all knew Jordan Haerter and in our hearts he’s already won the Medal of Honor. Now we just have to convince others.” kmerrill@indyeastend.com

East Hampton Town Sued Over Mold Problems By Rick Murphy

Residents who live or lived at Windmill II, a senior citizen affordable apartment complex, have sued the Town of East Hampton and a number of other agencies and entities involved in it over an ongoing mold problem they say is making them sick. Frank L. Pellegrini, a lawyer with the Manhattan-based firm Pellegrini & Associates said the suit was filed in the Supreme Court of Suffolk County on March 7. Also named in the suit are the boards that govern Windmill I and II – which are LLCs – the town’s housing office and housing authority. The suit includes personal injury claims, breach of the waiver of habitability, negligence and seeks unspecified monetary damages. The defendants had not been served as of this writing. Residents have complained for the better part of the last year that they have been stonewalled in their attempt to get the Windmill Board of Directors and Tom Ruhle, the director of the town’s housing office, to adequately deal with the festering mold. Ruhle’s office, administers federal funds (Housing And Urban Development subsidies) that are paid to Windmill to make the apartments affordable for almost all of the seniors who live in the 47 units spread out over eight buildings. Residents complained that Ruhle, the board, and the managers of the complex have been reluctant to deal with the mold problem, addressed it in a lackluster manner and used unskilled workers who, in an attempt to remove the mold, made the situation worse. Ruhle, in a previous interview said the mold found at Windmill II, “wasn’t the bad type of mold.” He also refuted the charge that the mold has spread from the basements into the apartments, even though the tenants have gathered what appears to be irrefutable evidence, including professional testing and

Don’t Let Lack of Insurance Stop You From Getting Screened for Breast, Cervical and Colorectal Cancer Suffolk County bears a significant breast, cervical and colorectal cancer burden. Breast cancer is of particular concern in Suffolk County, where the incidence rate is 22 percent higher than the rest of Suffolk County. Complicating the outlook for cancer incidence and mortality for Suffolk County is the increasing number of people without insurance, which affects cancer survival rates. Unfortunately, lack of insurance often determines the likelihood of cancer survival. Uninsured people are twice as likely to die of cancer within five years. If the disease is detected early, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer exceeds 96 percent. The American Cancer Society (ACS) states mammograms are among the best early detection methods, yet 13 million U.S. women 40 years of age or older have never had one. Cervical cancer screenings can detect cancers that are more easily treated and help to isolate precancerous cell changes before they develop into cervical cancer. Pap test can detect precancerous cells or cervical cancer in the early stage when it is one of the most successfully treatable cancers. Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the U.S. But regular colorectal cancer screening can, in many cases, prevent colorectal cancer altogether. ACS recommends that both men and women at average risk for developing colorectal cancer should start colorectal cancer screening at age 50. The Cancer Services Program of Suffolk County is a Peconic Bay Medical Center Program funded by the New York State Department of Health, The Greater NYC Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and Tanger Outlet Center. Men and women screened through this unique program are assisted by patient navigators who offer assistance accessing diagnostic and treatment services for those whose screenings establish the need for further care. Bi-lingual navigators work to remove barriers preventing clients from completing diagnostic work ups. The navigators also offer assistance to any one diagnosed with breast, cervical or colorectal cancer by offering referrals to other community agencies for additional support services. Maureen O'Connor LMSW, is program director of the Cancer Services Program of Suffolk County at Peconic Bay Medical Center.

This column is made up of a lot of odds-and-ends joke lists I’ve received from friends on the Internet. I didn’t have time to think of and write an original column because, frankly, this week I have been obsessed with the missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370. I have come to the conclusion that one of the pilots decided to kill himself and the plane is lying at the bottom of the Indian Ocean. My guess it was the older pilot, Capt. Zaharie Ahmad Shah. We will never know. Since I’m a nervous flyer I will exclusively patronize any airline that announces they will have a psychiatrist in the cockpit on every flight to check if the pilot might be depressed. In the meantime, enjoy the lists. Some of them may give you a laugh.

Big Bucks Bargaining Begins By Kitty Merrill

Ratepayers in East Hampton aren’t handing PSEG a blank check. That’s the message area electeds sent this week to David Daly, president and chief operating officer of the utility. On Friday he wrote East Hampton Town Supervisor Larry Cantwell and Village Mayor Paul Rickenbach summarizing the utility’s proposal regarding the ongoing installation of massive utility poles and the potential for changing them out for underground, buried lines. In the missive, he repeatedly noted that nothing will occur until town and village officials agree to pay for it all, without question. They do get to review expenditures after the fact, but they can’t challenge them. Hold your horses, was the underlying sentiment in a correspondence to Daly signed by Congressman Tim Bishop, Senator Ken LaValle, Assemblyman Fred Thiele, Cantwell and Rickenbach on Monday. It’s “imperative” the issue of cost responsibility be addressed immediately, the quintet wrote. They pointed out that precedents for cost responsibility for underground transmission lines as set in the Town of Southampton five years ago, when neighbors wanted lines along Scuttlehole Road buried. LIPA paid half the cost of the project and residents who benefited by the burial paid the other half. Town officials drew the map outlining which property owners should have extra added to their monthly bills to cover the cost of the project. They chose town residents living in an area that stretched from the village east to the East Hampton border. Some residents have reported an increase of just $3 to their monthly bill. “East Hampton residents deserve no more of less than the residents of Southampton,” the officials’ letter states. Daly’s March 14 letter offers

an overview of discussions held earlier this month. Summarizing the summary – PSEG will study alternatives to the existing project, initiate preliminary engineering studies to identify a route, quantify costs for relocating the current project underground, design and execute and underground project, then remove or reduce the height of the existing poles. Work will continue on the current project. Rebecca Singer, spokesperson for the community group Save East Hampton, described the letter as “a major disappointment, to say the least.” The group wants PSEG to halt work on the current project immediately and install generators

until an underground project can be completed in two years’ time. “We do not want to go live on the 23/33 K poles ever,” Singer wrote in a release distributed last weekend. Daly’s summary of the nature of discussions held between PSEG and local officials, plus Save East Hampton members, she said, “is a breach of trust and fails to live up to our intent.” “From my vantage point, it was a fairly accurate representation of what was discussed at the meeting,” Rickenbach said of Daly’s letter. For now, he cautioned, “It’s work in progress.” Officials are slated to meet with PSEG again and, said the mayor, “We’ll see how it unfolds.”

Town Making Efforts For Greater Good

By Emily Toy

Last week the Southampton Town Board unanimously adopted a resolution authorizing the payment of all the town’s outstanding debt owed to the New York State Pension System. A payment of $2.5 million authorized by the resolution sees all debt obligations paid in full, according to a press release from the town. Because of the need for public pension funds to play catch up from the steep investment losses resulting from the economic collapse in 2008, New York State made use

of a process called amortization, which involves the prorating of a portion of an employer’s required contributions over a period of time. Southampton’s been a participating town since 2010. Of the five cities and towns in Nassau County and the 10 towns in Suffolk County, Southampton is the first to fully repay its debt. “This puts the town in the best possible financial position,” said Comptroller Len Marchese in a press release. “ We have generated surpluses, paid down our debt, established pay as you go capital spending to reduce future

borrowing needs, and have built up fund balances to a sufficient level to handle future challenges if they arise.” Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst said budgeting prudently and conservatively over the last few years resulted in successfully paying off the outstanding debt. “The town is financially sound and in a good financial position, thanks to the hard work of its employees and the leadership of the supervisor and town board,” Marchese said. Explore Program: Learning For Life S o u t h a m p t o n To w n Po l i c e

Sergeant Susan Ralph met with the town board last Thursday morning to discuss a new facet of the Explore Program called “Learning For Life,” designed for young adults 14 to 21 years old. Although the Explore Program has been in Suffolk County since 1975, Learning For Life would be the “first of its kind on the East End,” according to Ralph. Participants will go through training, though on a lower scale than actual police training, and will work alongside police officers, learning defense tactics and how to work traffic posts (with an officer on hand). The program, brought to participants by the police department, is through Big Brothers/ Big Sisters and is designed for “the good kids,” according to Ralph, who mentioned it won’t necessarily cater to kids with past drug charges, graffiti artists or arsonists. “Kids fill out an application with the police department. They’ll get interviewed by a police board and will be held to the same standards as we are,” Ralph said. Program participants would be in uniform, complete with a police badge and will meet two evenings a month at police headquarters. “This program is the first of its kind on the East End and we’ll be involved in these children’s lives” Ralph said, explaining the program insures the participant’s home life and school life are kept in check. “We’ll make sure homework comes first.” Councilman Stan Glinka opined this program would be the perfect opportunity for young adults, especially those who may be considering joining the police force. According to Ralph, private funding is available, which will cover insurance costs. According to her calculations, there would be a $30 application fee for each participant. Throne-Holst suggested Ralph to get together with SEA-TV for a public service announcement to get kids involved in the program. “In a way there’s nothing for kids to do here but get in trouble,” Ralph said. “Now we’re going to do something that’s positive for both the community and for them.” Clothing Bins For Greater Good Southampton Town Trustee Scott Horowitz, along with newest assistant town attorney Kathryn Santiago and Big Brothers/Big Sisters site coordinator Joanne Continued ON page 24.

Eye On Education By Dr. Dominic Annacone

The Need For Pre-K Programs In The Schools

A couple of decades ago I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend a lecture by Benjamin Bloom, from the University of Chicago, one of the creators of Bloom’s Taxonomy. This important work defined a hierarchy of cognition with memory and recall at the bottom and evaluation (forming judgments) at the top. Blooms taxonomy asserted that although it’s important to know facts (memory level), in order to

reach higher-level thinking skills students should acquire the ability to comprehend, analyze, synthesize, apply, and evaluate knowledge. Doctor Bloom was a great believer in the capability of all students being successful learners. I recall one of his memorable statements from that lecture which was: “If students are equipped with adequate entry-level skills, there would be academic achievement at the highest level for over 90 percent

REAL ESTATE

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

of the student body.” I believe this assertion is especially important for the preschool population. We know that in many instances students who have difficulties in attaining reading skills have a background lacking exposure to conversation, being read to, and other literacy-related topics. It’s been reported that in some areas some children come to Kindergarten having had no contact with books at all. Some school districts, such as Amagansett, have a well established Pre-Kindergarten program. Critics may argue such programs simply are too expensive inflating school budgets and local tax rates. But Pre-K not only advances student-learning capabilities, it may also have a significant effect on spending. The greater the number of well-adjusted students possessing

readiness learning skills, the lower the expenditures for remedial programs and some special education costs which are some of the most costly instructional programs in any school district’s budget. It’s my opinion that good Pre-K programs do not necessarily have to start teaching number facts and specific reading skills. Pre-school and Kindergarten teachers know the importance of activities that get children ready to learn and prepared to meet the challenges of language, math and other subject area skills acquisition. Some of the readiness training includes: - Learning to identify and write the letters of the alphabet. Learning the sounds the letters make and other simple phonetic skills. - Number recognition and counting. - Learning about different geometric shapes. - Learning the colors and using them for some simple art expression projects. - Developing listening skills including following directions. - Singing and enjoying the sounds of music. Equally important is the orientation of the Pre-school child to the classroom. Participation in group activities such as learning to share, being a good neighbor, working collaboratively in groups, acquiring some basic study habits, and most important, striving to develop positive attitudes toward learning are key. Successful Pre-K graduates are happy kids eager to come to school and work with their teachers and classmates. They’re ready to become fluent readers, writers, and speakers, and to crunch numbers. They have high self-esteem and are eager to employ all levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy as they encounter the modern day curriculum. It’s time for more school districts to formalize their own Pre-K program and make it the beginning of a child’s educational adventure.

The reason Cobb needed documentation is because all of the renters signed a lease stating that the apartments were their primary residences — if they left, not only would their federal assistance end, but they would not have their leases renewed.

By Rick Murphy

RICK’S SPACE The Luck Of The Irish (Or Lack Thereof)

I am very traditional. Being that my dad was Irish, I insist on making and eating corned beef and cabbage every year on Saint Patrick’s Day, even though no one else in the family likes it. Hell, I don’t even like it. In fact, I don’t even eat meat anymore, not that I’m quite sure what corned beef is anyhow. It doesn’t look like beef, that’s for certain. I don’t believe there is any corn in it, at least the yellow kind. Maybe there are “corns” like the kind you get on your feet, like bunions. Does anyone really know the difference between a corn and a bunion? Karen says corned beef is pickled – is that like being corned? Perhaps corned beef is really wild pork, or a boar of some kind. But as far as I can tell corned beef comes from the rib side of a brisket, a wild animal indigenous to Avenue

M in Brooklyn. It is a cousin of the flanken, which shares its tendency to speak in Yiddish tongues – though it is not tongue, the thing that looks like corned beef they serve in the Avenue M delis. (By way of making this column informative as well as profound I would like to point out “tongue” is related to the pastrami family.) Here’s how you cook St. Paddy’s Day dinner. Throw the entire corned beef into a big pot of boiling water for two hours. Add cabbage, potatoes (which grow in your ears), and carrots. Cook for another 40 minutes. Then slice the corned beef against the grain, even though there is no grain in it that I can tell, unless you count the corn, of course. (An alternate preparation method is to slice it against the pickle.) Smear mustard and horseradish on it, and butter. That’s it. “Everything is boiled!” My News

Editor Kitty Merrill astutely noted. Merrill hates corned beef and cabbage. She can’t even talk about it. The very mention churns her stomach – and she’s Irish, no less. I believe she had a traumatic experience as a youngster that to this day she associates with the corned beef -- perhaps a wild flanken or brisket with giant bunions on its face attacked her one night and bit her on the tuckus. For my dad, it was the one day of the year he felt he could throw his weight around in the kitchen. Being my mother is Italian, we rarely had “Irish food” because there was a shortage of potatoes in our ears and plus we had Italian food, which actually tastes good. The secret to enjoying Irish food, as every good Irishman knows, is to drink Guinness Ale. For best results, begin drinking the Guinness before dinner -- I start around March 14th -- and then ratchet up your beer intake in direct proportion to the proximity of the meal. That way, you can curse, swig, and sing at dinner, which magnifies the St. Paddy’s Day experience for other family members and makes it all the more unforgettable. (This is what’s known as being pickled.) As I write this Karen is in the kitchen beginning to wonder why I am not cooking dinner.

IN THE NEWS

Unbeknownst to her, the single pot on the stove contains tonight’s entire offering: boiled potatoes, boiled carrots, boiled cabbage, and a boiling piece of what appears to be some kind of meat or, it could be a giant bunion, or flanken, or a wild boar, or like Merrill, just a giant bore. It could be almost anything. All we know for sure is that it is corned, though we really don’t know what that means. What I can say, with enthusiasm, is I am an Irishman in every sense of the word tonight. I know this because there is a 12-pack sitting right next to me as a write this. No, it’s not in the refrigerator, because as real Irishmen know we drink Guinness at room temperature, because that’s what Irishmen do (I also urinate outside even though I have three bathrooms in my house but that is another story altogether). “Is dinner going to be ready soon?“ Karen just asked. “It was done five hours ago,” I replied cheerfully. “But I’ve been boiling it ever since so the meat, or the corn or whatever it is will be really dry and tasteless.” “Oh, I forgot. It must be St. Paddy’s Day again.” “Yeah,” I replied. “It’s amazing, but it happens every year on this exact date!”

EDITORIAL Kudos To Southampton Town The financial meltdown in 2008 proved disastrous for many entities, including towns, cities, and states that had their pension funds tied up in investments. Most are still reeling. In New York State, municipalities have been slowly building back up their funds while continuing to meet current requirements – it’s been a grueling battle most places. This week Southampton Town became the first on Long Island to repay its debt and get back to even. It’s a heady accomplishment on its own, but given the town’s record of fiscal restraint under Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst, it is downright remarkable. Oheka Fallout There’s a reason why the Suffolk DA is holding his cards close to the vest while he investigates the attempted murder of Gary Melius, the owner of Oheka castle. We don’t pretend to know the motives besides the shooter, and we are certainly not implying any connection with local politicians – and judges, too. But, as most insiders know, Melius was a player – a shaker and mover who had a lot of contact with a lot of the good old boys. Let’s just say he knew how to repay favors, and in return certain people did a lot of favors for him. We’re willing to wager an investigation will unearth some communications

Monitor Health Or Compliance? Dear Editor, How many of you know that the president told a Spanish speaking audience that if they have their cell phones and satellite TV, but not the Affordable Care Act, their priorities are not in the right place? How many of you know that Tim Bishop voted, without reading the bill before he voted, for the Affordable Care Act. How many of you realize the enormous expense the premiums and deductibles will be for the average family? There is no “you can keep your insurance” because the law won’t allow the insurance to continue and most are going

out of business. There is no “you can keep your doctor, period.” because most doctors and hospitals are not accepting the ACA, nor Medicare, nor Medicaid. Doctors are moving to states that won’t implement the ACA (also known as Obamacare), or retiring. There will be a 52,000 to 90,000 doctor shortage by 2025, they are already short 20,000 and the medical system is expected to crash, all due to the Obamacare debacle. Meanwhile, we are being seen by nurses and physician’s assistants to take care of the lower priority illnesses. There are better answers to our medical care. It is called the free enterprise system, which has made our country so advanced in a short period of time. Already many concierge medical groups are springing up across the country as an answer to less expensive medical care. There are savings accounts for medical expenses that are tax deductible. More and more options become available in a

between some of our elected officials and people close to Melius that will provide some interesting reading to be sure. Common Core Reacting to pressure from local educators, Albany has watered down certain Common Core provisions and postponed the implementation of others. The move came in response to a massive outpouring of complaints from school administrators, parents and teachers after students performed poorly on the initial tests. Unfortunately, many of the demonstrations were orchestrated by people who have a personal agenda -- principals are afraid the poor test scores will reflect negatively on them and teachers are afraid Common Core will play a role in evaluating them, thus setting the stage for promotions based on ability and merit rather than automatic promotions based solely on tenure. Microsoft founder Bill Gates, a strong Common Core advocate, said it best: instead of making the tests easier, do a better job of teaching our children. “The way we’ve been teaching math isn’t good enough,” Gates said. Put another way, if 90 percent of the kids get a 60 on a test, it is no different than if 90 percent get a 90 – it’s a reflection on how tough the test is, not how smart the student is. Dumbing down the tests doesn’t make them any smarter.

free country. Don’t support those who think the government has the answers. This country was founded on the free enterprise system, and if some of the insane regulations, like Obamacare, are removed, America can again lead the country in diagnosis, medicine and cures. Taking money out of Medicare and spending it on new IRS agents to monitor our compliance with this government mandated infringement is not the answer. LYNDA A.W. EDWARDS

Someone To Help Dear Rick, I want to congratulate you on your excellent article about Syd Griffin. Just to clarify, Syd did not actually slit his wrists [though he initially said he did], but said that he was planning to.   The bottom line is that this poor man

is very depressed and in pain. He is being moved to an interim home in Ridge hoping that he will be able to move back to his house in Northwest with maybe someone to help him. Ideally, it would work if he were to have a tenant in two rooms and a little income from the tenant. That, with his social security, could pay his food, electricity, real estate tax, and gas and cable, and if we could get him a companion with a car to watch over him, take him to activities, collect the rent and pay his bills, he could live out his days in the house. If you have any ideas, they would be most welcome. In the meantime, you did a wonderful service by shedding some light on the awful reporting that preceded yours. Thank you. Regards, NAME WITHHELD

Steven Zeltmann I think it was taken or captured. I think someone hijacked the plane and it could have possibly landed somewhere. As for the passengers, we can only hope for the best. Even without a runway, in a remote area, the plane may have landed and the passengers could be alive. Hannah Peil I was an airline ground manager during 9/11. I got to work just as the second plane hit the tower. Life forever changed for the aviation industry. So it’s unbelievable that something like this could still happen. Have we learned nothing? I feel for those passengers and hope for the best. John Papas I think they landed the plane in North Korea. If they did land in North Korea there is the possibility that they are all alive. We just have to hope the plane didn’t crash and kill everyone. The two passengers with the fake I.D.’s do seem to indicate a hijacking or terrorism. Roseanne Foster I suspect terrorism. I think there was a struggle on the plane and now it’s hidden in a hangar somewhere in Pakistan or Iran. I doubt anyone but the crew survived that steep climb in altitude.

MHT Outreach also offers direct client services which provide a different kind of support for those who are struggling. Emergency service as it relates

Dear Editor, I would have liked to say that I trembled while reading Jerry Della Femina’s recent expose concerning the Obama administration until I realized it was more of the “Tales of The Suffering Rich.” Talk-show host David Letterman will often tell a joke so far over the top that he will kiddingly say that his young son wrote it. I couldn’t help but wonder who wrote Jerry’s column that all but warned us that Obama is going to bring back the plague and then masses of locusts to attack good Americans – Conservatives, of course. I can only assume Jerry, in the middle of his hysteria that after Obama leaves office that America will still have many, many millionaires, who, I hope, by that time will have developed more humility and gratitude for the gifts that not Ronald Reagan, but God gave them. By the way, it may sound hysterical of me but I did hear a story recently that Obama was seen playing cards with Elvis Presley on a flying saucer, but I’m not going to believe it until it is confirmed on Fox news.

to food, shelter, and utilities allows MHT Outreach to help individuals and families on a fundamental level. When I first started training as an intern, I would observe Doreen interview people and elicit their story in a warm, conversational manner. I noticed it was often difficult for people to share their struggles and ask for help. The advantage of working with a LCSW is that Doreen can offer support on multiple levels. Because she is an LCSW, and is devoting one hundred percent of her time to outreach, she can advise clients on budgeting, long-term planning, and federal and local supports like healthcare, housing, and food programs. She knows the systems on local and national level and therefore is an asset to the community and the individual client’s she serves. It has been a tremendous learning experience for me this year at MHT Outreach. I have been exposed to local underserved populations, learned about local and federal programs, and experienced crisis management and intervention. Most importantly, I’ve learned to sit with varied manifestations of struggle and offer myself as support through empathetic listening skills. Sincerely, JESSICA CALLEGARI

The book documents the infamous murders of Mr. and Mrs. James Wickham of Cutchogue. In 1854, James Wickham got into an argument with one of his workers, Nicholas Behan, after Behan harassed another employee who refused to marry him. Several days after Behan’s dismissal, he crept back into the house in the dead of night. With an axe, he butchered Wickham and his wife, Frances, and fled to a nearby swamp. Behan was captured, tried, convicted and, on December 15, 1854 became one of the last people to be hanged in Suffolk County.

By Sue Hansen

Independent/ Michael Heller / EHFD

Last Wednesday night Sag Harbor firefighters were called to a residence at the corner of Robeson Boulevard and Harrison Street Extension for a report of a structure fire. Arriving units found it to be a working structure fire in an unoccupied residence. Firefighters were initially hampered by a live downed power line lying on the property but were able to quickly extinguish the flames and bring the fire under control. The Rapid Intervention Team from East Hampton was called to the scene to stand by, and the East Hampton Town Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the fire’s cause and origin.

Coal and Pie were orphans when they were caught by RSVP animal welfare volunteers. They might easily have perished this past winter, trying to survive in

the frigid temperatures, without adequate food or shelter. One volunteer could not bear to turn them out, after they had been altered and vaccinated through the TNR Program (trap, neuter, return) which helps to reduce local stray/ feral cat pregnancies. Susan R. has cared for and socialized these two babies, while searching for a good Samaritan to welcome them home. Please open your heart to one or both.

Senior Citizen

Continued from page 5. Ruhle wrote to Holden earlier this month, stating that her federal Section Eight subsidy is being revoked because she has not been sleeping at her Windmill II apartment on Accabonac Road on a full time basis. Since the complex is subsidized with federal funds residents must make the apartments their primary residence to qualify. But Holden’s physician, Dr. George Dempsey, said he advised his patient not to sleep at the location, that the mold present there is making her ill. “He told me I should move, that I can’t expose myself to more.” Nevertheless, Holden said she is at her apartment every day. She also said Dr. Russell Cancellieri, a Southampton-based immunologist, had advised her she is allergic to the mold and that she risks serious consequences if she is exposed to it. Holden and many of the other residents have had their dwellings tested by the Shelter-Island based Mildew Busters. The results of the tests, processed by Pro-Lab in Weston, FL. showed alarming levels of Peniccillium/Aspergillus. Residents sued when the town dragged its feet remedying the situation. “I didn’t have asthma when I moved here two and a half years ago,” Holden said. She also learned after moving in that the woman who lived in her apartment before her had liver damage. Both Ruhle and Michael DeSario,

THE INDEPENDENT Q Traveler Watchman

the chairman of the Windmill II board of directors, claim the mold problem was confined to the basements and has been addressed. Holden and the other tenants are incredulous at the claim, especially since they have been gathering visual evidence for months. “Mold travels, talk to any specialist. It’s goes through the walls, the pipes, the electric wiring,” Holden said. In some apartments inspected by The Independent the mold can be seen coming through the floors and baseboards and through the heat ducts. Holden said the problem is that Windmill has made a “half-ass” effort to remove the mold, tearing down sheetrock from the basement ceilings. “A professional company would seal off everything and tell everyone to leave.” Instead, Holden said, when the sheetrock gets torn down, “Millions of spores are released that everyone breathes.” Holden said, as the elected tenant’s representative, she is viewed by Ruhle as a thorn in his side. It all came to a head after the tenants went before the East Hampton Town Board earlier this year to complain about the mold. The board told Ruhle and DeSario to meet with the tenants and come up with a plan of action. But Ruhle didn’t want Holden in the meeting, though the other tenants selected her. “The [tenant] representatives for the meeting organized by my Office will be selected by my Office . . .” Ruhle wrote in a letter to Holden.

Kassebaum, met with town board members to discuss new clothing donation bin legislation. According to Councilwoman Christine Scalera, there’ve been “issues with drop off bins.” Placing the bins in the proper places and seeing how much actually goes to charity, instead of being sold

off on the sly, are the main issues identified by both Horowitz and Kassebaum. It was requested to the town that legislation be crafted to strictly ensure those who want to put bins up disclose what percentage of the clothing is going to charity (in most cases it would have to be 100 percent to get the bin up). “This is sensible and prudent,” Horowitz said. “Anything we can do as a community is helpful.”

Big East Needs Big Showing In NCAA’s Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge. The Big 12 led all conferences with seven teams making the Big Dance. Meantime, the Big East had four teams punch tickets, less than the Big 12, A-10, ACC, Pac 12, and Big Ten. With this being the first NCAA Tournament since major conference realignment, the Big East would be well served to make their mark on March Madness.

It’s that time of year. Conference tournament week is over, selection Sunday has passed, and we are 24 hours away from kicking off the best four day run in sports: the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament. No-names become household names (Florida Gulf Coast), top seeds will undoubtedly fall (Georgetown), and odds are no one will win Warren Buffett’s

I had the opportunity to go to the Big East semifinals last Friday night. I was expecting, and hoping to see Villanova, my alma mater, face St. John’s. Instead, we got Seton Hall versus Providence. As I got to my seat on press row, I looked up and was disappointed to see the Garden was, at best, half full just ten minutes before tipoff. It seemed surreal. The Big East semifinals on a Friday night at the Garden used to be the hottest ticket in town. But, when the four teams involved are Seton Hall, Providence, Creighton and Xavier, I should have expected this. Thankfully, the arena quickly filled up, about 70 percent full, and was close to capacity for the second semifinal featuring Creighton against Xavier. Also, credit the Creighton fans for a fantastic showing. They had a massive fan base that made the 1,200 mile trek east to support their Blue Jays. The Big East Tournament final between Providence and Creighton was a tight game, won by the Friars, and it helped save what was otherwise a lackluster week of basketball at the Garden. Big East teams in the NCAA Tournament include Villanova, Creighton, Providence and Xavier. The Conference would be well served getting two, if not three teams, to the Sweet 16. As is deserved, the Big East has clearly lost some credibility on a national level after losing the likes of Syracuse, UConn, Louisville

and Pittsburgh. But, if the Big East is going to rebrand itself as the best “basketball centric” conference, they need to at least do just as well, if not better than the A-10, who got six teams in the Big Dance. Locally, St. John’s could help the Big East regain national prominence by taking the next step in the program’s ascendance. Steve Lavin has dug the team out from the Norm Roberts days, but his resume doesn’t lie, they’ve still only been to one NCAA Tournament on his watch (ironically with Norm Roberts’ players in Lavin’s first season 201011). Also, the Conference will be in serious trouble if Georgetown doesn’t quickly return to being a national power. The Hoyas have, arguably, the most prominent history in the Big East, and the biggest national brand. They were counted on to help carry the “new” Big East. As for the upcoming Big Dance, Xavier was in a play-in game, Providence drew North Carolina in the first round, with a win Creighton may need to face Baylor this weekend, and Villanova will face a rival in the round of 32 (UConn/St. Joe’s). There is a worst case scenario for the Big East this weekend: nobody makes it to the Sweet 16. That would be a massive blow to the Conference’s legitimacy going forward. Here’s to hoping us Big East fans can avoid such embarrassment. Pete is a lifelong Montauk resident and former sports talk host at 88.7FM WEER.

Bear Hunting At WHBPAC

Kids As Reviewers

They say everyone’s a critic, now you can be too! Amagansett Library and Bank Street College Children’s Book Awards want to know what kids think about new books. Tomorrow at 4 PM, Kindergartners through sixth graders can get free copies of 2014 books before anyone else and give a review to get a prize. Reviews will be posted throughout the library with some posted online at Bank Street College where teachers, librarians and parents from all over the country will see them. Snacks will be provided. Call 631-267-3810 to register.

Michael Rosen’s awardwinning book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, is brought vividly (and noisily) to the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center stage, starting today at 10 AM. Kids in Pre-K through second grade can join in on the adventure to find a bear, “wading through gigantic swishy swashy grass, splashy splashy river and the thick, oozy, squelchy mud!” The event will feature catchy songs, interactive scenes and plenty of hands-on adventure, plus a few special surprises, making the show a “can’t miss” performance. Show times are today and tomorrow at 10 AM and 12:30 PM, and seats are filling up quickly. Tickets are $10 each. Call Cheryl Wheeler at 631-288-2350 ext. 102 for more information.

Egg Drop Challenge

Join the Children’s Museum of the East End this Saturday morning for the second annual Egg Drop Challenge. Children can design and construct protective containers during a hands-on workshop from 10 AM to 11:30 AM. All materials, including the egg, will be provided. Parents are welcome to come and help. At noon, everyone will gather in CMEE Square to watch as each container is put to the test. Free for members, $10 for non-members. Call the Bridgehampton museum at 631537-8250 for reservations.
