A Whole Lotta Potholes

By Kitty Merrill

Blown tires. Cracked rims. Damaged shocks, struts, and even steering. You could call it a big pain in the asphalt. According to one local tire expert, potholes on Montauk Highway are “an ongoing thing, and everybody’s sick of it.” No sooner did South Fork motorists welcome the removal of snow from the highly traveled highway than they faced another level of travel travail: everworsening potholes, cracks, pits, and washboard bumps. East Hampton Town Highway Superintendent Steve Lynch reported that every day he gets an average of five or six calls from motorists complaining about a whole lot of holes along Montauk Highway. Lynch said he returns the calls and speaks with the irate auto operators. But what he has to say isn’t so soothing: Montauk Highway is the responsibility of the State Department of Transportation. The wife of a local lawmaker hit a pit in Wainscott last week and blew out a tire on the way upisland. That afternoon DOT workers were seen

scampering out into traffic to fill holes with shovels full of what’s known as “cold patch.” It’s also called “misery mix,” because once it rains or a few heavy trucks hit it, the material dissipates and disappears. “Soon as it rains, it’ll come right out,” a worker on the scene affirmed, offering that they deployed from a base in Hampton Bays in response to complaints.

Elected officials from the federal, state, town and village levels have had enough. They petitioned Governor Andrew Cuomo to act soon to resurface the stretch of State Route 27 that runs from the end of County Road 39 in Southampton all the way to Montauk Point. Plans were in place to resurface Montauk Highway from Stephen Hands Path to Route 114 in East Hampton this spring. (The project

was stalled last fall by Hurricane Sandy.) “While this project is welcome, it is inadequate,” a letter to Cuomo and DOT Commissioner Joan McDonald reads. “It seems incomprehensible that at a time when the economy has suffered from a deep recession, that the needed funds to re-surface this road cannot be found immediately . . . It should be a top priority.” The letter was signed by Congressman Tim Bishop, Senator Ken LaValle, Assemblyman Fred Thiele, County Legislator Jay Schneiderman, Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst, East Hampton supe Bill Wilkinson, East Hampton Mayor Paul Rickenbach, Sag Harbor Mayor Brian Gilbride, his Sagaponack counterpart Donald Loucheim, Mayor Laura Nolan from North Haven and Mayor Mark Epley from Southampton village. “We implore you to expand the proposed project scheduled for this Spring and undertake the resurfacing of the 33.1 mile length Montauk Highway from Southampton to Montauk,” the letter concludes. It’s been more than 15 years since that section of the highway has been resurfaced. Thiele often likens it to the surface of the moon. “Frankly, the state, for many CONTINUED ON PAGE 21.

disgusting, heartless Republicans in the House of Representatives to make cuts of about $85 billion out of the mother of all killer budgets, which is well over a trillion dollars. It is all the Republicans’ fault. At least this is what I’ve heard on NBC, CNBC, CBS, CNN, ABC and The New York Times. I want to be the first to thank President Chicken Little, oops, I’m sorry, President Barack (the sky is falling, the sky is falling) Obama for taking the time every minute of every day in the past two weeks to tell everyone who will listen about how these heartless cuts are going to destroy the lives of each and every American. These cuts, according to Obama, will “jeopardize our military readiness, eviscerate job-creating investments in education and energy and medical research.” It “could” force reductions in food inspections, which “could” lead to outbreaks of more food-borne bacteria, such as E.coli. From what I make of it, according to Barack Obama and his minions, these budget cuts mean that tiny orphans will be cast out starving into the street. Food supplies will not get delivered, so people may have to resort to eating their pets. I had to reassure my sweet little dog Shlomo that in a pinch I would eat my own right arm before I would toss him into the soup pot. Flight controllers will be furloughed and leave the controls just as the plane you’re on will be coming in for a landing.

days before the Sequester went into effect. Give them a head start, I say. Obama has grounded The Flying Angels, kept two ships from sailing to the Middle East and, as I see it, because of our saving 85 billion bucks (which is what our wasteful, inept government misplaces every week), we are in imminent danger of being attacked and conquered by Costa Rica. My favorite Sequester scare tactic came when that Queen of the Idiots, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (DCalif.), made another in a series of absurd comments, actually claiming that 170 million people would lose their jobs if the Sequester was enacted. No, it makes no sense to tell her that there are not 170 million jobs in the country. Let us just pray for the people in her district. The most disappointing part of the Sequester saga came last week when an alien took over Bob Woodward’s body. Woodward has been the darling of all Liberals ever since he and Carl Bernstein toppled all the presidents’ men and forced Richard Nixon to quit. Now Woodward actually reported, from an interview, that the idea of having the Sequester came from Obama in the first place and his going into a tizzy over it and pretending it was a Republican idea was an “act of madness.” Liberals came after Woodward and said he was old, senile, a liar, a “has-been,” and anything else they could say about him. The Liberals play rough when anyone dares hint or question that Barack Obama is pure, honest, never lies and never exaggerates. So I don’t know about you, but according to Obama, the food shortages are about to start and we all will soon be suffering from Sequester Starvation. I’m going out to forage for a pizza.

Paddy’s Parades Approaching By Kitty Merrill

It’s an annual rite of spring, the plethora of parades celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Processions run the gamut from one of the largest parades in the state to one of the shortest, and they start this weekend. In Amagansett on Saturday, don’t blink; you might miss it. The fifth annual Am O’Gansett Parade steps off at 12:01 PM sharp, with participants walking less than a block from Mary’s Marvelous to the Computer Store. Local businessman and volunteer Htun Han leads the way as Grand Marshal. Following the parade, the fun continues with an after party at the Talkhouse featuring music and light fare provided by D’Canela restaurant, the official restaurant of the Am O’Gansett parade, for just a free will donation. There will also be a drawing for a 27-inch iMac. Tickets are $20 each or six for $100 and are still available at The Computer Store and Crossroads Music. If tradition is more your taste, head over to Westhampton Beach on Saturday. The cozy village will come alive at noon, with Grand Marshal Tom Otis out front.

Gun Control Bill Ready For A Vote

By Kitty Merrill

The Suffolk County Legislature’s Public Safety Committee last week passed a bill meant to keep guns out of the hands of individuals who have been involuntarily transported to emergency rooms for psychiatric reasons. The full 18 member body was slated to consider the measure at its meeting as The Independent went to press yesterday. If adopted, Legislator Kara Hahn’s (D-Setauket) Introductory Resolution 1121-2013 will mandate Suffolk law enforcement to cross-reference the names and address of individuals who undergo a psychiatric crisis and are transported to Stony Brook University’s Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program against Suffolk County’s pistol license registries. If there is a match between the name or home address

and the registry, that information will automatically be provided to the respective pistol-licensing bureau, where an investigation can be made regarding suspension or revocation of the license. After the bill’s introduction in early February, Suffolk County Po l i c e a d o p t e d m a n y o f i t s provisions internally, considering it an effective tool to ward off violence at the hands of a potentially mentally unstable individual. Once adopted, the bill will codify the now informal policy and expand its use in areas outside of the Suffolk County Police District. “This is a simple connect the dots measure,” Legislator Hahn said during the committee’s deliberations. “This is not a kneejerk reaction to recent mass shootings; this is a logical step.

We are focusing in on the ones who have been identified as a threat to themselves or others.” As state and federal governments continue to debate gun control measures in the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut and Aurora, Colorado shootings, it has been up to local lawmakers, like Legislator Hahn, to come up with common sense policies to protect public safety, a release pointed out. “A l t h o u g h p o l i c y m a k e r s across the nation continue to work on common sense gun control measures, I thought it was important to enact this law as quickly as possible. I want to ensure that this critical gap was closed now because each time we address a loophole, we potentially save lives,” said Legislator Hahn. “Any potential redundancy that may occur in the future, vis-á-vis state law, will only help to provide multiple layers of security and protection.” “I am supporting this legislation,” South Fork Legislator Jay Schneiderman said, via email this week. “It doesn’t create any new laws. It actually makes enforcement

IN THE NEWS

of existing laws more likely. When someone is involuntarily transported on an emergency basis to the Stony Brook facility it will trigger a review of that person’s home address for gun licenses.” He continued, “A gun permit is already revokeable in the instance where it is accessible to someone who is mentally unstable with the potential for violence. This law just puts it on law enforcement’s radar. It provides a “trigger” mechanism to require a review. It does not mean that a family member’s gun will be taken away.” There are about 3000 transports to Stony Brook CPEP a year, the lawmaker informed. “After Sandy Hook and other shootings, we are all concerned that mentally unstable individuals with violent tendencies will get their hands on a weapon and cause the loss of innocent lives. The bill allows the East End to work with the deputy sheriffs to establish a similar review on the East End.” The Suffolk County Police District is supporting the law and has already put a policy in place that accomplishes what the bill requires, Schneiderman pointed out. Locally, many municipalities have their own police departments. kmerrill@indyestend.com

Q&A With A Spa Expert in the original Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue. She owned her own spa in Southampton and managed the Ocean View Salon at Gurney’s Inn. She is also founder of The Sport Facial, where she catered her services to a limited clientele of professional athletes.

By Jessica Mackin

Laura Anne Pelliccio is a seasoned spa educator and business professional in the luxury market of spa, beauty and wellness. Her career started in her teens as a Senior. Aesthetician and Spa Manager for Equinox Fitness Club & Spa, where she worked for seven years. Laura has also managed The Plaza Spa

What are the spas you recommend on the East End? There is really just one spa that is dear to my heart out here, but I have visited others that are really just different and special in their own way. Of course Gurney’s Inn is a top choice and not just because I managed the salon. The staff is thoroughly knowledgeable on the authentic marine  organic treatments being provided. I can get the full wellness relaxation experience from the food, to the pool, to the amenities, plush robes  and a spectacular view. To fully answer your question, I have also visited Salon Xavier in Sag Harbor and had the most  magical experience with treatments for my hair and nails. Xavier provides an upbeat atmosphere being it is a busy

community and set right behind a marina full of snazzy yachts. I can literally walk out of  Salon Xavier and go right into a restaurant or party. It’s just a cool place and I like people watching the interesting guests who are being serviced by Xavier. For the medical spa experience, hands down, it’s SpaUnique of Southampton. From Laser Hair Removal, to Fotofacials, to the latest technology in skincare, the owner and medical aesthetician, Monique, has a great solution for the Hamptons community looking for a quickfix. I am also curious about the spa expansion in the new Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton.

What are the most popular spa trends for 2013? There are  four  super popular treatments for 2013. The first are thermal treatments. What I mean by this is,  cold therapies: arctic steam rooms, ice facials, and cool Jacuzzis. It is invigorating to experience a hot plunge followed by a cold plunge. I will never forget my experience at Qua Baths & Spa in Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. After dipping into a lukewarm bath, followed by a steaming hot bath, followed by a  freezing cold bath, I entered into the ice cold steam room that SNOWS! It was amazing.

IN THE NEWS

The next trend  are manicures, manicures, manicures! These days manicures are not just two coats of polish and a shiny clear top coat. We now have a full plate of detailed artistry, we have beads referred to as “Caviar” adding a touch of glitter sprinkled on the nails. Our third trend is emphasis on more kids  and teens treatments. Lastly, Asian inspired “mind and body” treatments will never go out of date.

What are some of your favorite spa treatments?  Everything on the menu and anything that can put me to sleep.  But to be specific, I love a traditional Swedish massage that includes reflexology, for no less than 80 minutes and anything  that incorporates  treatments for my hair and scalp. I’m a big fan of Cupping Therapy, which includes acupuncture. It’s not for everyone, but it works for my nervous system and body aches.  Any insider tips for East End Spa-Goers?

Brushed And Toned At Gurney’s Inn By Jessica Mackin

During the month of March Gurney’s Inn in Montauk is offering a series of organic green spa treatments using seaweed, the crop of the ocean. Seaweed has a high concentration of seawater minerals, and provides a virtual pharmacy of beneficial elements. When you purchase any of the select green treatments, you receive 20 percent off the treatment. I decided to try one out. First off, I must say the spa atmosphere that Gur-

ney’s offers is unparalleled. The gorgeous views of the Atlantic, the attentive staff and the top-of-theline amenities make it an experience like none other. The Brush and Tone seaweed wrap is what I tried. This 50 minute treatment is designed to exfoliate and tone the skin. Now who doesn’t want toned, smoother skin? Margarita, the aesthetician, was amazing. The treatment started with a very thorough job of exfoliating with a soft nylon brush. After the exfoliation process she applied pre-warmed seaweed gel to the entire body. The special properties of seaweed help the elasticity of skin tissue, increase circulation, stimulate metabolism, and promote detoxification. Once I was covered in the seaweed, she wrapped me in the sheets and blankets. The wrap facilitates the absorption of all the rich minerals and biotrace elements from the seaweed and helps to tone and detoxify the

body. For about 25 minutes I laid cocooned in my seaweed blanket shell. While I waited for my smoother skin, Margarita performed a scalp massage using the best eucalyptusscented oils. While the beautiful fragrance filled the room, I was left alone to relax for a few more minutes. Next up was a Swedish shower to remove the seaweed followed by an application of seaweed moisturizing lotion.

Many of us lead very busy lives, fast paced and filled with responsibilities. It’s nice to steal away from it all for some much deserved “me time.” Whether it’s for one of the spectacular treatments or just use of the amenities (pool, sauna, steam room, fitness room, and Roman bath), Gurney’s Inn is the perfect spot to do this. I have never left Gurney’s Inn feeling anything less than amazing. Jessica@indyeastend.com

Montauk’s Deborah Thompson Day Spa isn’t your typical Hamptons spa. There are no beachy themes or ocean motifs. No wind chimes or rolling wave sounds. There is no scent of salt water and it’s not bright . . . at all. Instead, when you step into the dimly-lit, yet extremely welcoming waiting area, you get lost in an engulfing aroma of exotic scents and lush décor. The Morrocan-themed spa offers dozens of massage, facial and body treatments all designed to meet any specific need. This month, the day spa is offering a special “green” facial, which includes all organic and natural products. The Independent made the trip out to the spa on Sunday for the 60-minute indulgence, and was delightfully surprised by the attentiveness and thoroughness of

the staff. The warm, softly-lit room cast an immediate wave of relaxation. Sweet, yet pungent, fragrances consumed the room. Every product used for the special facial was green in color and is available by special order, if so desired.

RICK’S SPACE Doctor, Doctor, Mister MD

I’m not big on going to the doctor. The way I figure it is doctors don’t make any money on healthy people. Put another way, there must be a little something wrong with everyone, but if it don’t hurt, don’t worry about it. I haven’t been in the hospital since I had my tonsils taken out when I was 11. It was easily the most traumatic event in my life. They wheeled me into the operating room, put the ether mask over my nose, and I felt like I was being suffocated. I did get two good kicks in to the anesthesiologist, the second of which knocked out a tooth. They’ve been strapping people onto the stretchers ever since. Most everyone I know who has died was seeing a doctor and spent time in the hospital. Ergo, those could well be contributing factors. I say just go straight from good health to death and cut out the middlemen. I watch “Jeopardy” every night on TV. There must be a lot of senior citizens who watch, because every commercial is pushing some kind of drug. Oftentimes, the potential side

effects of the drug are much worse than whatever it is the pill is supposed to help. We all know the usual warnings. Hey, I’m down with not operating heavy equipment, that’s not a big deal. But consider this side effect: “rare cases of severe hepatic reactions, including jaundice and fatal hepatitis, liver necrosis and hepatic failure, some of them with fatal outcomes have been reported.” This is for Torodal, an antiinflammatory pill that people with ulcers take. So let’s break it down: one minute you have a stomach ache because you ate some pepperoni: next minute? You’re dead. Have a headache? Ibuprofen works, right? You can buy it anywhere, even 7-Eleven. But “if your tongue swells up and you have difficulty breathing consult a physician.” Imagine THAT phone call: Me: Hawoo Derkter, tong thwell. Choking . . . Doctor: Do you have health insurance?

These have included sleep-driving, making and eating food, and having sex. Oh, so this is why Halle Berry hasn’t returned my calls. We’ve all seen this one: “If you experience a prolonged, painful erection, stop using this medicine and seek immediate medical attention or permanent problems could occur.” So you go to the doctor and he says, “I don’t see any evidence of this occurring.” Now, that hurts. It’s not just medicines that have bizarre warnings. For example, “Warning: has been found to cause cancer in laboratory mice” – it’s written on a box of rat poison.

In February they are miserable and ornery for the entire month). I’m not trying to belittle doctors, but all parents know that when our

IN THE NEWS

little ones were growing up we took them to the doctor way too often, some of us, every time they had a sniffle or a sneeze. This is the meat and potatoes of the industry – every time we walked into the office, the cash register sounded, and since our health care provider got the bills, we never knew how costly each little check up could be. Then, after a battery of tests which 99 percent of the time were unnecessary, we’d get prescriptions to fill, not realizing the pills were probably worse for your kid than whatever ailed him or her. I tell you, there’s something wrong with the system -- one minute you’re bringing your little girl to the doctor because she has a barely audible cough and the next thing you know she has a painful erection that lasts for more than four hours. I don’t take pills. I never did. Even when I was a kid and the doctor gave me something and the directions said, “take three a day with meals” I would carefully throw one out with breakfast, one right before lunch, and one after dinner. Guess what? I didn’t die. I used to always tell my mother Indian braves didn’t take any medicine (other than the pipe, of course). She’d counter with the fact that the average life expectancy of an American Indian brave was 31. Maybe so, but they had to walk around with a loin cloth on and a feather sticking out of their heads – they probably died from embarrassment.

EDITORIAL Sequestration: A Necessary Evil The federal government is no different than a family that can’t stop using its credit cards, or a little kid who spends his entire weekly allowance the first day on candy. It is painfully apparent that the government simply cannot stop spending more money than it has. Though President Obama warned of the dire effects that sequestration – a series of automatic spending cuts – would have on the economy, we think he was grandstanding. It’s true the cuts, which took effect Friday, will result in lost jobs. It is also true that to continue to spend more than we take in is economic suicide. The President wants to blame it all on the GOP of course, and on paper his assertion that raising taxes on the wealthy is the best way to start trimming the deficit makes sense. The problem is that it is only true if the government reels in spending. As it stands, Washington manages to spend everything it brings in and then some. It’s very much like the little kid who spends all his money on candy – give him more money, and he’ll buy more candy. The blame isn’t just on President Obama. Every politician is like a little kid – they all want perks and entitlements for their districts, but they refuse to do the math that says there isn’t enough money to go around. What’s happening in Washington isn’t much different than what happened in our local school systems over the last few decades. The schools spent and then spent some more - budgets doubled every decade. When Governor Cuomo finally capped spending, we were fed the old company line, “the kids will suffer.” What Cuomo was really telling the districts, though, was to pare down the bureaucracy and get tough

Independent VOICES

Troubling Times To the editor, Rick, as usual your editorials are right on the bulls eye. However, this one should go deeper and I am sure you will get to the bottom of this blatant incompetence in town hall. The buck stops at our intellectual genius at government, business, and all things holy. Smarter than a speeding bullet, none other than Emperor William and his cohort, Ms. Quigley. Why has no one in the attorney’s office been dismissed over this? Who, or should I ask why, are they being shielded? These hard questions

should be asked and answers demanded, immediately. These two, are hell bent on destroying what little is left of what this place means to us. The question is who notified the Town Attorney’s office and who dropped the ball? This is not a phone call that was not returned but a travesty of destruction of a place that has withstood the stand of time . . . until now. Why, hasn’t anyone been dismissed or resigned over this? Who and why are they being shielded? Both of them should answer this immediately. The incompetence buck stops at his office. Of course his autocratic style of ramming things through in back room deals and a full time display of sheer arrogance is rampant. Ready! Shoot! Aim, all over again. The Ronjo, the 114 drainage, the failed concert, the Larry Penny and possible law

on the unions. Which brings us to the forum at Pierson High School Saturday at 10 AM. Former County Legislator Bill Jones, the host, contends that the system is skewed in favor of the unions. He is referring to the process by which municipalities settle disputes with their police unions, but he might well be talking about every sector of the government that relies on taxes to pay union employees. Let’s be frank: unions have demanded and gotten pay increases every time they’ve negotiated: arbitrators typically decide in the unions’ favor. That worked when the economy was booming, but not now. That’s exactly why Sag Harbor is mulling cutting the size of the force - to avoid putting the impasse in the hands of an arbitrator. The new math is this: cities and states and some school districts are on the verge of bankruptcy as retirees live longer and pension funds are being tapped out. Meanwhile, in a stagnant economy, many of us have seen wages flat line. Some of us have lost jobs, and some of us lost our homes to foreclosures. There is something unseemly about unions demanding ever-more perks and ever increasing wages when the rest of us are footing the bill. Unfortunately, government must shrink to survive, on all levels. The middle class pays for our teachers, our police, our municipal workers, our armed forces, all the federal employees, and also for those on social services, food stamps, and other forms of public assistance. But what union champions our cause? Call it sequestration, but recognize it for what it really does: it forces a government perilously close to financial ruin to realize it has to tear up the credit cards, stop buying all that candy, eliminate waste and get rid of bureaucrats who are on the payroll simply because of who they know. The party is over.

suit over his assistant abruptly resigning, elimination of the leaf program and heaven help what else has been swept under the rug. Run on your record? That is why you are left standing naked in the rain by your own party. Why don’t you just resign and drive off into the sunset? Ms. Quigley’s three-monkey denial is laughable. She, as deputy supervisor, and of course the higher intellect than anyone here in the universe, should have known (Rte 114,and now this) but she is too busy meddling. Does this rise to the level of conflict of interest? Despite your “I don’t give a crap edict” before storming out. We do, so why don’t you just resign and drive off into the sunset as well? The stacking the ZBA and Planning Board is so obvious, Unfortunately for us, there is plenty of time for these two to continue, to dismantle what we cherish.

The question is how do we stop them? ARTHUR J. FRENCH

Obviously Risky Dear Mr. Murphy, Every town and city across the U.S. places trash receptacles in its main street business district and Southampton Highway Superintendent Alex Gregor’s reluctance to maintain receptacles, for whatever reason, shows insensitivity to business. Mr. Gregor has repeatedly cited his department’s reorganization as the reason for cutting services while at the same time spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on “other duties” that appear to be overkill such as the Noyac roadwork. Another example is his decision to build Continued on Page 16.

How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Elizabeth Regan I usually go into the city for the parade. It’s just fabulous, as good a celebration as I remember as a girl in Ireland.

The trees, which were a gift to the Town from a Southampton nursery, are inappropriate for the site and will require maintenance at an expense to. It should be noted that before Mr. Gregor built the basin, I volunteered to share all relevant zoning documents but Mr. Gregor ignored my offer of support. Those documents indicate that prior to Mr. Gregor’s tenure, two streets were redesigned as part of a zoning change to increase density. One street contributed to flooding; the other contributed to road accidents. Alex Gregor built a new basin. The street still floods; accidents still occur; the basin remains empty. The cost to taxpayers - almost $1 million. Redesigning streets is obviously risky. Ironically, Mr. Gregor insists on redesigning streets in Noyac where a redesign appears to be unneeded yet he failed to consider a redesign west of the canal where statistics prove it is needed. This contradiction might be explained in part by understanding Mr.

It’s the big thing in town. You have to do it! I love to watch the floats go by. One year the Boy Scouts had a great float. It was set up as if they were going camping, with tents set up. I think they even had a fake campfire. Louise DeMarco I go to New York City every year to watch the parade. The parade is fun and everybody is in such good spirits.

Here We Come Dear Rick, I am sorry to say I told you so, folks, but for decades we’ve been purchasing products from other countries. For one reason or another other entrepreneurs and businesses abandoned our country. Jobs left – people are out of work. Oh wait – they “work,” but we pay them. If you expect to help our economy grow, that’s the wrong way – the right way

is to simply look for products bearing the “American made” logo. Made in America. Made in the USA, You can do this – it’s called patriotism, I see a small show of it now. Things are looking up.

Bonac Bon Vivant Remembered

Independent/Courtesy Coleen Curtin

By Kitty Merrill

It looked like summertime in the heart of Springs last Saturday afternoon. The Ashawagh Hall and Springs Presbyterian Church grounds accommodated a crowd, as if a successful art opening was underway. But hearts were heavy, some broken, as hundreds of family, friends and members of the local art community gathered to memorialize Vito Sisti. Sisti, an auto mechanic, curator, columnist and volunteer died suddenly at his home on Camberly Road on February 25. He was 51. Pastor Tony Larsen presided over the service, marveling at a crowd that eclipsed even the most wellattended Easter Sunday. A personal friend of Sisti’s, he offered an

intimate eulogy and remembrance evoking alternately sadness and humor, grief and hope. Coleen Curtin, Sisti’s widow, read “No Single Thing Abides,” a poem by Lucretius, and his cousin Joan Scocco amused the assemblage with shared childhood memories. Once word of Sisti’s passing began to circulate, Facebook pages filled with recollections, as well as offers to help with the service and memorial reception. Friends filled Ashawagh Hall for what was affectionately dubbed “Vito’s Last Show,” having spent hours putting the memorial together during the preceding days. Friends and family members offered extemporaneous comments, as others provided music. Still others brought a bounty of food. Posters from over 20 years’ worth of art shows he curated, along with obituaries and an article that profiled Sisti in New York Magazine covered the walls of one room in the community space. The article was titled “Fine Arts and Auto Parts,” the name of Sisti’s first foray into mounting exhibits promoting local artists at the Hall. The main space in Ashawagh Hall hosted works from Sisti’s private collection, alongside an array of his famously quirky T-shirts. A table covered with beach stones bore a placard encouraging friends to write a remembrance on a stone and place at a favored Springs site.

Stanzione were all on hand. Stanzione read a proclamation honoring Sisti’s contributions as a member of the board of the Springs Improvement Society, as well as an ardent supporter of the Springs Library and the Springs Food Pantry, and helping to organize the annual Springs Fisherman’s Fair. Sisti was instrumental in the refurbishment of Ashawagh Hall and established the site as a vibrant showcase for exhibits featuring the work of local artists, spearheading its evolution from a shabby and little used space to a desirable location for community events. Born in Brooklyn on Sept. 14, 1961, Vito was the son of Francesco Sisti, who died last year, and Marie Ali Sisti, who survives her son and lives on Staten Island, NY. After attending schools on Staten Island, where he grew up, and a stint at Wagner College, Sisti joined the U.S. Coast Guard and served on the U.S.S. Midget stationed in Alameda, California, traveling to Alaska and back. When he asked for a transfer to the East Coast, Sisti ended up

in Montauk in the mid-80s, and dropped anchor in Springs. His chief, Ed Michels, became a lifelong friend and colleague on the S.I.S. board. Known as the unofficial mayor of Springs, Sisti was an auto mechanic by trade, but was better known for his civic pride in his adopted town. In addition to his volunteer efforts and art shows, he composed the “Springs In General” column for the East Hampton Press until last year. Sisti was immortalized as a “Vitolope” -- a gold life mask with antlers -- by Billy Strong, and as a life-size replica by Springs artist Trish Franey. Said statue could be found wearing a Santa hat at Christmas, or occasionally taking up residence in the middle of Pussy’s Pond. It was, of course, in the hall on Saturday. Sisti married Coleen Curtin on April 26, 1990. She survives her husband, as does her son, Nick Stevens, and her daughter, Janine Maloney. He is also survived by a brother, James, who resides on Staten Island. Sisti will be cremated and his remains interred at the Calverton National Cemetery at a later date. Memorial donations to the Springs Improvement Society, Springs Food Pantry, and Springs Library are suggested.

Local fire, ambulance, and emergency service workers depend on it to transport patients to Southampton Hospital. Resurfacing of the highway wouldn’t just mean construction jobs, it would also “foster the tourism/second home based economy of the region,� Thiele’s letter emphasizes.

Sag Police Discussed In Forum A forum on Sag Harbor’s police force will be held at Pierson High School on Saturday from 10 AM to noon. Hosted by former Sag Harbor Village Trustee and Suffolk County Legislator Bill Jones, the forum will highlight the contract negotiations between the village police union and village officials. During the forum Jones will outline his case on the unfairness of the current process. Last year, Mayor Brian Gilbride proposed disbanding the police force, offering the possibility of having services provided by another entity. Reasons for disbanding the police force included high costs, the force consuming too much of the village’s budget, and the force not being sustainable. For more information and questions call Bill Jones at 631-287-3501. E.T.

Beware of Bill Scam The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) is warning its customers of a new, nationwide utility bill scam. Last week the utility reported numerous LIPA customers received telephone calls from individuals claiming to work for LIPA, demanding payment through a pre-paid card on past-due balances. “These non-LIPA callers threaten customers that if they don’t make payment through these pre-paid cards; their service will immediately be shutoff for non-payment,” according to a LIPA release. Customers are then directed to purchase such a pre-paid card to make the payment in order to keep their power on. LIPA does not accept payments through pre-paid cards, and customers should not give any confidential information to any such callers. In some cases the caller also tells the customer that they may have a faulty meter that is dangerous and in need of replacing for a substantial fee. Customers should be aware that the electric meter is the property of LIPA and is not customer-owned equipment. LIPA does contact customers with past due balances by phone to offer payment options, but never demands direct payment over the telephone. LIPA currently does not

accept credit or debit card payments. Customers who have received calls demanding immediate payment through a pre-paid card or who have billing questions should call the Customer Contact Center at 1-800490-0025 or 631-755-6000. LIPA Encourages customers to use the following tips from the Better Business Bureau to avoid falling for this scam: • Never provide your social security number, credit card number or banking information to anyone requesting it over the phone or at your home unless you initiated the contact and feel confident with whom you are speaking. • If you receive a call claiming to be your utility company and feel pressured for immediate payment or personal information, hang up the phone and call the customer service number on your utility bill. • Never allow anyone into your home to check electrical wiring, natural gas pipes or appliances unless you have scheduled an appointment or have reported a utility problem. Also, ask utility employees for proper identification. •  Always think safety first. Do not give in to high pressure tactics over the phone for information or in person to get into your home.

If you’ve ever been tempted to purchase a pet, take a good look at this picture and think twice. While reputable breeders do exist, many are not. And for every pet purchased, many more suffer. This young female was used for breeding. She and three other dogs were saved by local rescue groups RSVP, Guardians of Rescue and Save-A-Pet. They had been abandoned in a kennel without food or adequate shelter during the recent snowstorm. A fifth dog did not survive. The “Fab 4” received the necessary veterinary care and are recovering at Save-A-Pet in Port Jeff Station, but will be in need of a home soon. If you would like to help, please consider a tax-deductible donation to cover medical costs. Call 631-4746333. And remember, “Don’t shop, adopt!”

Traveler Watchman Truth without fear since 1826

A Second Shooting For the second time in two weeks, Riverhead Town Police are investigating a shooting incident. On February 26 at about 11:30 PM, cops were called to a home on East Avenue in Riverhead, in response to a complaint from residents that someone was shooting at their house. Responding officers found several shell casings on the ground near the exterior of the house. At the time of the incident the home was occupied by two adults, two teens and a five-year-old girl. No injuries were reported. The suspects were described as two black males wearing masks. They fled on foot prior to police arrival and a search of the area was unsuccessful. Anyone with information is asked to contact Riverhead Town Police. On February 13 Riverhead Town Police charged four suspects with reckless endangerment and three of them with criminal possession of a weapon, following reports of gunfire in the area of 3rd Street in Riverhead. Empty shell casings found at a home occupied by several adults and young children allegedly matched those found in a Taurus police pulled over leaving the vicinity. One of the occupants of the car was in possession of a loaded .380 caliber semi automatic handgun, police say. Arrested were Jeffrey Despeines, 21, of Centereach, Eric Baldwin Jr., 18, of Bellport, Jordan Harrell, 18, of Medford, and Jasmine Parsons, 19, of Riverhead.

Ice Rink Possible For Southampton By Emily Toy

Members of the Southampton Youth Services board and local businessmen pitched an idea for a newly constructed ice rink to the Southampton Town Board last Thursday morning. Although plans for the facility are still in the preliminary stage, a new building on the SYS property containing just the ice rink may be built on town-owned land. SYS Director Scott Johnson, along with his fellow board members, and Fred Gradin, a backer of the proposal, said the possibility of using the soccer field at North Sea Park was likely the best option for the ice rink. According to Johnson, the site at North Sea Park is a flat piece of property that is “more ready to go” than other options. “I think it’s a great idea to have a more centralized location,” said Councilwoman Christine Preston Scalera. “We want to get a pulse of the board,” Johnson said, “and see if it’s right for the community.” The ice rink would be available year-round to the community as an SYS-run facility. It would include offerings for all ages and activities, from adult hockey leagues and kids

clinics to figure skating, rentals and private parties. Other town board members also seemed in favor of the proposal, with Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst donning a Rangers jersey in support of the idea. “We would all like to see this go forward,” the supervisor said. “It’s hard to find a spot that is appropriate for something like this, but I think prioritizing the ice is the most important.” Throne-Holst said she would motion for a memorializing resolution on the proposal. The SYS team said it would likely be months before a more detailed plan on developing and operating the facility would materialize. Emily@indyeastend.com

Hi-Tech Cancer Screener Coming The Ellen Hermanson Foundation, long-time supporters of Southampton Hospital’s Ellen Hermanson Breast Center, the only center of its kind on Eastern Long Island, has committed a minimum of $220,000 to underwrite the hospital’s acquisition of a new Hologic state-of-the-art, dual detector mammography system with Tomosynthesis 3D capabilities. Scientists, doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals continue to agree that the ability to identify breast cancer in its earliest stages remains the best defense and that early detection saves lives. The funding will strengthen Southampton Hospital’s capacity in the critical area of screening and early detection by using Breast Tomosynthesis as an adjunct screening modality, but not yet a replacement for routine digital mammography. In making the announcem ent , H o spi t al P re si d e n t and CEO Robert Chaloner commented, “The Ellen Hermanson Breast Center has been an invaluable resource for women and families, offering a comprehensive array of services, from routine screening mammograms and sonograms to minimally invasive stereotactic and core biopsies. From the beginning, the Ellen Hermanson Foundation has generously supported the growth and exceptional quality of our program. Southampton Hospital is most fortunate to have such a knowledgeable and caring partner in fighting breast cancer on Eastern Long Island.” To m o s y n t h e s i s , o r 3 D Mammography, transcends the capabilities of traditional digital mammography and is the next generation of screening modalities. Comments Julie Ratner, Foundation Chair, “We are happy to continue to support Southampton Hospital because it is our belief that medical care is not a luxury and that people should have access to quality care close to home. The funds raised by the Ellen Hermanson Foundation are dedicated to benefitting our East End community.”

They are going to have to make more room in the trophy case at Southampton High School. That’s because the Lady Mariners basketball team keeps bringing in new hardware. Last season the team earned both the Suffolk County Class B title and the Long Island Class B title. The core of the team came back this season with a bigger prize in mind: The New York State Class B title. The road to the Final Four begins tonight but in the meantime, Juni Wingfield’s charges have kept busy in the Suffolk County tournament. After winning the County B title earlier in the month the Lady Mariners dispatched Stony Brook in the B/C game and then, last Wednesday, a stunning upset over Class A champion Harborfields to earn the County ABCD (Small Schools) title at Northport High School. It wasn’t easy. Going into the fray the Lady Mariners had won 12 straight, making them one of the hottest teams on Long Island, but not as hot as Harborfields, which had reeled off 16 in a row since a non-league loss to powerhouse Mary Lewis Academy on December 15. Southampton had a 5-4 lead early in the fourth quarter but Harborfields wrestled control of the game and stubbornly held onto it. Credit Kristen Kelly and company; the Lady Tornadoes have a knack

H

for making timely baskets and play a stubborn defense that is difficult to penetrate. But Southampton is a tournament tested team to be sure, and its three losses, all in December, came against high quality teams from larger schools. Clearly, Wingfield designed the schedule to toughen up his charges. Then there is Paris Hodges, the senior wunderkind who is never overmatched on the floor, and her fellow 1000-point scorer Kesi Goree. The pair kept the locals close throughout and with just under a minute left Paris did what superstars do in big games: she took over. Hodges flashed open in the right corner and fired from behind the arc, drilling it. Then, she stole the ball and scored again – Southampton had the lead for the first time since early in the first quarter. Amy Werbitsky, fouled, had a chance to put Harborfields ahead but made one of her two free throws to send the game into overtime. Noel Hodges has the kind of grit and speed her sister does. Her timely steal and score early in the fourth put the Mariners within striking distance. Her driving layup in overtime put the locals ahead for good and Paris Hodges drilled a free throw to clinch it. The final was 43-40 -- Paris Hodges led all scorers with 20 and Goree added eight points and grabbed 11 rebounds.

Lady Mariners Add Another Trophy By Rick Murphy

March 6, 2013

Kelly led the losers with 14. The win propelled Southampton into the rarified air of the County Large School title game against mighty Sachem East last Friday. The two squads squared off in December and the Flaming Arrows bested the locals, 59-47. This time around Sachem prevailed again, 54-42, though Hodges (16) and Goree combined for 29. The Mariners crushed Stony

Brook 35-10 in the B/C game, which was a bit of a travesty: many of the players from Stony Brook missed the game because the school, which is a boarding school, was closed that week. Wingfield took it easy and rested his key players. Rashelle Baker tallied 12 and Sydney Katz 10 for the victors, who went on a 10-0 spurt to open the game. The state tournament begins tonight when Southampton takes on Cold Spring Harbor, the Nassau County Class A champion. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM and will be played at Hofstra University.

Local Swim Team News Compiled by Kitty Merrill

Craig Brierley, head coach of the East Hampton High School Boys Varsity Swim, provided the following update for the local “swimming family” on Sunday. “We got home early this morning from the State Championship meet in Rochester and Thomas Brierley and Trevor Mott did awesome. Trevor swam the 500 free at 4:53.72 finishing with an overall rank of 33, and a public school rank of 25. Thomas swam the 100 back on Thursday to a 54.69 and qualified to come back and swim in finals on Friday. At finals he went a personal best 54.23 and a public school state ranking of 14. The boys enjoyed themselves swimming with the Section XI team and are looking forward to the opportunity to qualify for next year’s meet and improve on this year’s accomplishment. I am very proud of both of them!”

“The league has sent me the selections for this season’s allleague/all-county honors and our team has the most selections we have ever had.” East Hampton has earned selections in the following events: ALL LEAGUE: 200 Medley Relay - Thomas Brierley, Trevor Mott, Christopher Kalbacher, Shane McCann 200 Freestyle - Thomas Brierley 50 Freestyle - Shane McCann 200 Freestyle Relay - Robert Anderson, Thomas Paradiso, Alex Astilean, Shane McCann 400 Freestyle Relay - Robert Rewinski, Alex Astilean, Trevor Mott, Thomas Brierley ALL COUNTY: 500 Freestyle - Trevor Mott 100 Backstroke - Thomas Brierley The boys will be honored by the Suffolk County Swim Coaches Alliance at an awards dinner on April 5 in Smithtown.

Coast Guard Auxiliary News By Vincent Pica

www.indyeastend.com

Commodore, First District, Southern Region (D1SR) United States Coast Guard

EPIRBs, PPIRBs and GPIRBs – What!? Many of us have heard of satellite systems hailing the USCG when a boater pulls the chord, pin, string, wire – pick one. A signal goes up from the boater’s device to a satellite (in the old days it went up to planes that were, hopefully, flying by) and down to the Coast Guard’s Rescue Coordination Center. This would start the “rescue clock starts now” clock at that point. The device is called an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon – an EPIRB (said “ee”-purr-b).

picked up by passing planes and satellites. It could take four to six hours for someone or something to pass overhead before it reached the USCG. Also, the footprint that you were within could be as much as 12 square nautical miles. That is a square that is 12nm long and 12nm miles wide. That is a lot of water to cover. On the USCG website, it says that the 121.5/243MHZ devices are “no longer recommended.”

Back in the day The old model EPIRBs transmitted on dual frequencies of 121.5 and 243 megahertz (MHZ). This was hopefully

The State of the Art Interestingly, the 121.5MHZ frequency is favored for radio direction finding (RDF). So the newest EPIRBs

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

now transmit simultaneously on 406MHZ and 121.5MHZ. The 406 reduces the footprint to one square nautical mile. And the 406MHZ is heard by satellites all over the world and, within an hour, the USCG RCC will have commenced coming to your aid. And the rescuers will also be looking for your EPIRB’s 121.5MHZ signal with their RDF gear. In heavy seas, that may very well be the difference between passing right by you while you are in the trough – or knowing that you are just over the next wave. Also, EPIRBs are classified by whether they will deploy automatically (Category I) or you have to “pull the pin” (Category II.) I am of two minds. I have a CAT-I on my own vessel but I am hoping that I get the chance to grab it before it floats free and starts signaling for help. I want them to find me – not it! However, you can conjure up circumstances (knocked out in a

IN THE NEWS

capsize?) where you are in no shape to pull any pin and the EPIRB is at least drifting along with the boat, beeping and flashing away. So, you tend to plan around worst case. But what are GPIRBs and PPIRBs? A “GPIRB” (gee-purr-b) is an EPIRB with a GPS signaler built-in. It has all the functionality of the EPIRB but it also sends a GPS lat/lon. The search square in now roughly 30 ft by 30 ft. Unless you are trying to hide from the rescue team, they will find you. A “PPIRB” (pea-purr-b) is a Personal EPIRB. You wear it on your person. It also has the built-in GPS. When you attain a coxswain rating in the USCG Auxiliary (the person responsible for the boat, the crew and the mission), the USCG gives you a PPIRB. “Even if you go hiking, take this with you. If you get lost, we’ve got too much invested in you not to come get you!” The basic criterion between the EPIRB, GPIRB and PPIRB is price. Smaller search area equals higher price. Smaller size (carry it on your person) equals higher price again. Prices range, based on a quick internet search, from $200 to $1000.

What to Do? Do you need one if you never leave the bays and creeks Out East? Frankly, no. How about going out to the Canyons for shark? You could be anywhere on a 100nm rhumb line from Moriches Inlet to the Canyons. You are out of radio range and, unless you have a GPS aboard, you don’t know your lat/lon within miles. Think about it, bunky. When you buy one, you will register all your details with NOAA, which maintains the global database. Keep that data up to date and one day you may find a red and white helicopter hovering over you. BTW, if you are interested in being part of USCG Forces, email me at JoinUSCGAux@aol.com or go directly to the D1SR Human Resources department, which is in charge of new members matters, and we will help you “get in this thing…”

Big East Scores Big Butler head coach Brad Stevens is one of the more prominent young coaches in the game. At 36 years old, he has already led the Bulldogs to back-to-back NCAA Championship games in 2010 and 2011. Butler became the first midmajor program to reach the title game in successive seasons since seeding of the tournament began in 1979. Xavier has been to four Sweet 16’s since 2008. That’s more than

Syracuse, Louisville, Notre Dame, and Pittsburgh. In 2009, Forbes listed Xavier as one of the twenty most valuable college basketball programs in the country (one of only two non-BCS schools on the list). Creighton University is an up and coming program, with a 2013 player of the year candidate in Doug McDermott. He ranks third in the nation in scoring at 23.4 ppg. This season, the Bluejays won their first Missouri Valley Conference title since 2001. The team plays their home games at CenturyLink Center in Omaha. This arena will be the biggest in the conference, seating 18,560, which should provide lots of electricity. Lastly, the Big East has reportedly zeroed in on a TV deal with Fox Sports, which is rumored to bring

each school about $3 million annually. That’s about twice as much as the non-FBS playing Big East schools were making under their current deal. It’s been a great week for the Big East and its fans. The league transformed itself from a laughing stock group of castoff basketball schools to one of the deepest basketball conferences in the country. Best of all, the league will still be centered around that basketball Mecca, Madison Square Garden. Big East hoops fans will see some new faces, but the conference is alive and well, and should have a bright, exciting future.

March is usually an exciting time of year for college hoops fans. But this year, Big East fans have even more reason to jump for joy. The Catholic 7 (DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, Seton Hall, St. John’s and Villanova), which announced they were withdrawing from the Big East conference in midDecember, will reportedly retain the Big East name and keep their annual tournament at Madison Square Garden. Furthermore, the conference plans to expand to ten schools starting next season, adding Butler, Creighton, and Xavier. In 2014-15, Dayton and St. Louis will join, giving the league an East and West Division. After years of getting hammered by conference realignment, Big East basketball is finally settling on a future that should preserve the brand and lead to new rivalries between some promising hoops programs. One of the many things we’ve learned from the shifting of conference alignments is that teams within a conference must have similar goals and values in order to generate stability. Many of the departing Big East members wanted to build their football brand at the expense of their basketball programs in order to attract bigger football dollars. The new Big East will be 10, and eventually 12 basketball-minded teams looking to put a quality effort together on the hardwood. Keeping the Big East name is an enormous plus for the conference. Even with big names (Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Notre Dame) leaving, the history that’s been building since the league’s inception in 1979 is safe. Keeping the conference tournament at Madison Square Garden maintains the new Big East’s credibility. It’s been well documented that ACC Commissioner John Swofford has floated the idea of getting his conference tournament out of Greensboro, NC and into the Garden. At least for now, the Big East has held off the likes of Duke, North Carolina, Syracuse, and Louisville. The additions of Xavier, Butler, and Creighton bring quality basketball and passionate fan bases to the league. These schools are far from fillers for the conference.
