Holy Moly, The Roads Are A Wreck By Kitty Merrill

One Long Islander joked a pothole near his house is the size of the Grand Canyon. In fact, he said, “I think I saw tourists taking a donkey ride to the bottom.” Another motorist reported seeing signs on the LIE warning drivers to expect delays due to potholes on the Grand Central Parkway. “I never

saw that before,” the veteran city driver said. Still a third complained that she was pulled over in East Hampton for suspected drunken driving. “I was swerving to avoid potholes,” she informed. This winter has been marked by two topics of conversation -- the harsh weather, with its unprecedented (for the last two

decades at least) precipitation, and what Old Man Winter’s miserable ministrations wrought, a plethora of potholes. No sooner does the snow, slush and ice abate than a new pain in the asphalt arises. Washboard bumps, crevices, cracks, and craters dot area roadways, making daily travel a trial. “I got a flat tire on the way to Albany this week,” Assemblyman Fred Thiele disclosed on Friday. “The roads are horrible everywhere.” Motorists on the South Fork are actually fortunate, if they can hang on until spring. Before the winter trashed roads across the state, a plan to pave State Route 27 from the County Road 39 merge in Southampton all the way to Montauk was already in place. That means the South Fork won’t have to jockey for position with other communities looking to fix newly-trashed thoroughfares. Thiele reported receiving verbal

Independent/James J. Mackin

assurances from the state DOT that the big repaving project is still a go. Thiele said he feels confident State Route 24, which comprises a bumpy ride from Hampton Bays to Riverhead, is also in line for paving help. In the meantime, state and town Continued ON page 27.

Joni Mitchell says, “Laughing and crying, it’s the same release.” One Indy reader decided to go with laughter when it comes to wretched roads. With a nom de plume crafted by scrambling the letters in the word “potholes,” he sent us the following faux Letter to the Editor. Dear Editor, They say there are way too many of them on the East End. They say they are a public safety hazard that makes it dangerous to drive on our roadways. They say something has to be done now to reduce the number of them. Am I talking about the deer? Hell, no. I’m talking about the potholes.  Someone has to speak out on behalf of the innocent potholes. They sit there silent and motionless in the middle of our roads only to be run over motorists. They are a familiar sight, a part of life on the East End. But the complaints go on and now towns are declaring war on the potholes. Since potholes can’t speak for themselves, somebody has to.   It’s not the potholes’ fault that there are so many of them. It was natural conditions that led to their exploding population. They act as natural speed control devices.  They add to the rural character of our area and discourage too many visitors. Plus, they’re an economic boon to auto mechanics, body shops, and tire centers. I say “save the potholes!”   Seth Lopo

BUMPING AND GRINDING MY WAY THROUGH ADOLESCENCE Start a trip to the Hamptons on a Friday at 4 PM (even during this cold, ugly winter) and you deserve what you get. What I got in the first two hours of my four-hour trip to Bridgehampton was bumper-to-bumper traffic with me driving and my little fluffy pal Shlomo asleep in the back seat. This was traffic that never went over 10 mph. Queens felt as big as Texas. At one point I decided to go to a playlist on my iPod which I had sensitively titled “Music for Old Farts.” I played the rock and roll music I grew up with in high school. The

songs I played were “Earth Angel” by The Penguins, “Sincerely” by The Moonglows and “Pledging My Love” by Johnny Ace. Then the song “Dedicated to the One I Love” by The Shirelles came on and I remembered once, many years ago, on a car ride with another couple, both Judy and her friend Julie agreed “Dedicated to the One I Love” was “one of THOSE songs.” “ What does ‘THOSE songs’ mean?” I asked. “You know,” was the answer, “like Mindy Carson singing the dance that was called ‘The Fish.’” “God, wasn’t that awful the way boys used those songs to grind

Julie’s husband Ed and I both smirked at each other. Now I can’t dance to save my life. I am the worst dancer in the world. I came from a long line of awkward clumsy dancers. My mother and father attempting to dance at my wedding to Judy in 1983 were the worst. Their dancing looked like an event at the handicapped Olympics. But I must say I was like Fred Astaire when it came to doing “The Fish.” I would bump, I would grind, I would work myself into a red-faced perspiring frenzy doing “The Fish.” Suddenly I went back a million years and I was 15 years-old dancing in Sandy’s basement. (Last name withheld in case there is not a statute of limitations for things you did when you were 15 years old in the basement with Sandy and her friends.) “The Fish” was put on the turntable. The lights were turned down low and “The Fish” would play over and over. The words are forever locked in my brain: The Fish. Is it a salmon that comes in a can? (Chorus): No no no no no. Is it a flounder that you fry in a pan? 
No no no no no. What is this new dance I’m asking you man? They call it The Fish. Roll a little left foot, 1 2 3.

Rock little right foot, bend your knee. Use the ocean motion, calm and cool. Rock and roll your baby, that’s the only rule. My favorite part was the “ocean motion” part. I don’t mean to boast, but when I did the “ocean motion” part, the tide was always going out, if you know what I mean. Never once, in those days, did a girl I danced with bump or grind back. Good thing, too. I would have passed out from excitement. Now you have to understand that what boys were bumping and grinding against was something every girl wore in those days — a panty girdle. This was sort of like a hard elastic body armor. A boy bumping against a panty girdle could damage himself for life if he caught the hard edge of the panty girdle the wrong way during a bump or a grind. Also, if one got lucky and found himself in a position where one could work his hand under a panty girdle, then one had to deal with the dangers of the elastic cutting off circulation in the fingers. Gangrene caused by a hand’s lengthy stay under a panty girdle was a real fear in those days. Bras weren’t the wispy, dainty things they are today. They had these hard plastic bones in them for shape. I always worried about losing an eye from a snapping bone if I got too close to a bra with my head. We were so innocent in those days.

Sources: Cantwell Was On Board With Poles By Rick Murphy

When a group of alarmed residents from McGuirk Street spoke passionately about their opposition to new wider and taller utility poles at a recent East Hampton Town Board meeting Supervisor Larry Cantwell shared their outrage. In fact, Cantwell reiterated he had written to Governor Andrew Cuomo urging him to demand PSEG take down the poles and instead bury the cables underground, calling the poles “a travesty.” Later at the meeting former town board member Debra Foster, placed the blame on East Hampton Town Highway Superintendent Steve Lynch, claiming he greenlighted the project along with two other Republicans, former Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson and Theresa Quigley, a former town board member, in September 2013. Foster is a longtime Democratic Party Committeewoman. Neither Cantwell nor Foster mentioned that Cantwell, as village administrator, had ample time to review the plan and sat in on discussions about it with representatives from the utility company months earlier. In fact, Lynch had nothing at all to do with the poles on McGuirk Street, which is in the village. According to PSEG records, meetings were held for months during Cantwell’s employ with the village and firmed up on June 25, 2013, when he was still in office. Cantwell said he only recalls attending one meeting with LIPA and village officials, but other sources said he sat in on at least three in May 2013 alone. LIPA/National Grid had formulated the pole replacement plan over a

year ago. During the early portion of 2013 a series of meetings took place with representatives of those two companies and PSEG, which was slated to take over the utility, and village officials. Rebecca Molinaro, who succeeded Cantwell as village administrator officially on August 1, 2013, said she sat in on a series of meeting alongside Cantwell, Village Highway Superintendent Scott Fithian, and Mayor Paul Rickenbach in May. The pole replacement plan was discussed in detail, she said. “The poles were originally going to be much higher,” she recalled, but the utility company scaled the size back. “The mayor and the board noted that this would be a sensitive issue so it was an open process.” She said the utility subsequently did a direct mailing to everyone, including McGuirk Street residents, along the route. “This project should be built underground,” Cantwell wrote to Cuomo last month. Yet once again, he neglected to say that option was thoroughly explored, and ultimately rejected, while he was the village administrator. “The mayor requested the lines be buried,” Molinaro recalled. “They came back with varying reasons why they couldn’t be.” The village even ordered its attorney to see if the utility could be forced to bury the lines and found it did not have the authority to do so. Cantwell said he had no recollection of that occurring. The pertinent issue Cantwell said, is that LIPA formulated its own environmental study, named itself the lead agency, and then issued a negative declaration, meaning a full Continued ON page 17.

Lawsuit: Halsey Hid Value Of Parcel By Rick Murphy

The Bridgehampton Fire Commissioners hid the real value

of a small parcel of land on Main Street in Wainscott to discourage

competitive bids, court papers to be filed this week allege. According to the document, filed this week on behalf of the district’s former secretary/treasurer Charles Butler, the commissioners had arranged last fall to sell the parcel to Ron Lauder, a friend of Steve Halsey, who was the head of the fire commissioners board at the time. Butler publicly objected to the deal, pointing out there were two other parties interested in paying more. Butler was subsequently stripped of both his titles, even though he was duly elected by the public to the treasurer’s position and was to serve until the end of this year.

The district’s attorney, John Courtney, agreed with Butler that the parcel should be sold to the highest bidder and he was subsequently replaced as well. Butler is suing for some $40 million in damages. According to the court papers Halsey, stung by criticism, tried to defend the sale to Lauder. “In newspaper stories on the sale of the property, Halsey was quoted extensively,” the lawsuit states. “At 6,000 square feet, the vacant land at 113 Wainscott Main Street is zoned for residential use, but could only accommodate a 700 square foot house. According to Fire Commissioner Steve Halsey, it serves no purpose for the district,” a newspaper article stated, “The property is not large enough to put a firehouse on it and no one would put a firehouse in a residential area anyway,” Halsey was quoted saying in The Press. Halsey further stated the property was appraised for $1.1 million, according to the newspaper article. The Fire Commissioner Board subsequently accepted a bid from Lauder for $940,000 after the other interested parties failed to follow up. According to the court papers, though, “Neither Halsey nor the Board ever advised the public that the square footage allowable for a house on the vacant Wainscott parcel was, according to East Hampton Town Building Department official Thomas Preiato, three times the square footage described by Halsey” in the newspaper. A 2100 square foot house on Wainscott Main Street would be worth millions, Butler’s attorneys states. They contend “The Board of Fire Commissioners effectuated a plan of action which was consistent with lowering the public interest in the parcel by suppressing” the actual value of the parcel to be sold. The proposed sale was then put to public vote by law, but the referendum “did not include the purchaser’s name, the other higher offers made . . . the allowable square footage for the parcel.” The lawsuit contends Halsey and the Board breached the fiduciary duty owed to the public and committed “a violation of clearly established law.” Halsey was subsequently defeated in his bid to be reelected to the board. Last week he declined to comment on the matter since he is no longer a fire department official.

governor and when he was attorney general, he said, “Our hard work has paid off.” Cuomo applauded ASMFC members “for righting the status quo.” In turn, Nessel and Pelland are applauding the governor. This week, Pelland marveled that “something so casual” as a fishing trip could result

in such rapid results. Cuomo called Nessel personally to tell him the news. This weekend, Nessel discussed the call while working with Steve Forsberg of the Viking Fleet. Said Forsberg, “This is very, very good for Long Island and the State of New York. Now we’re all equal.” kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Governor Andrew Cuomo with Captain Richie Nessel in Montauk last September.

He’s got friends “this big.” Last summer Captain Richie Nessel took Billy Joel out fishing. Gene Pelland, who captains and cares for Joel’s boats, was also on hand for the excursion, as the trio began talking about catch limits. In particular, they discussed inequity when it comes to summer flounder restrictions in New York compared to neighboring states. During the trip, Joel came up with the idea of inviting Governor Andrew Cuomo out for a day’s fishing. “Billy was concerned about fishing limits and he reached out to the governor,” Pelland recalled. The pair shares a lot of common interests, including a concern for the environment and the state of area waters. They’ve appeared together during cleanups in Oyster Bay, Joel’s hometown. “Billy was very adamant about trying to help,” Nessel related. “That’s how the governor ended up here with me.” Cuomo fished with Nessel, who operates his charter boat, Nasty Ness, out of Diamond Cove Marina in Montauk, “a couple of times this summer,” the captain reported. “Richie explained what he knew [about the catch limits] and relayed the heartbeat of Montauk. The governor took that to heart and said he was going to see what he could do,” Pelland said. A few short weeks later, Cuomo held a press conference on the deck at Swallow East in Montauk. At the gathering he demanded fairness from the federal government, which sets the catch limits. Cuomo, who was accompanied by State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, delivered an ultimatum to Department of Commerce officials: fix the problem or find a lawyer. He focused on summer flounder, or fluke, and the limits imposed on New York. Compared to anglers in New Jersey and Connecticut, fisherman here are required to catch larger, and fewer, summer flounder. Cuomo told the feds to level the playing field or expect a lawsuit. Federal officials don’t seem to realize, Governor Cuomo said dryly at the conference, “It’s a regional fishery . . . I have news for the federal government, fish swim.” Fluke aren’t aware of boundaries between state waters. Catch limits should pertain to regional fisheries and there should be equality among the states. Otherwise, the numbers New Yorkers wind up with are “absurd,” he said, and people can catch more fish in neighboring states. “That is just wrong and it is unfair,” he said.

Industry advocates have been lobbying for fairness across the region for “about 10 years,” Nessel said Sunday. It took Cuomo five months to land a deal. Last month he announced members of the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission voted to create a region comprised of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, requiring the same rules for fluke fishing in all three states. Calling it a “big victory for our fishing industries,” Cuomo noted, “For more than a decade, New York’s saltwater anglers have endured the toughest fluke regulations on the eastern seaboard.” Reminding that he’s worked with the industry as

New Councilmen Get To Work By Emily Toy It’s only been two months, and already Southampton Town Councilmen Brad Bender and Stan Glinka are “lovin’ it.” After taking office in January, the two newbies are beginning to settle into their respective roles at town hall, with a focus on providing a better Southampton for the people. “ I t ’ s g o i n g g r e a t ,” G l i n k a said in an interview on Monday. “Everybody’s been very welcoming. It’s been great and I wouldn’t expect anything but.” Glinka said he’s had no trouble whatsoever with growing into his new position. “It’s been a very comfortable transition,” he said. According to the

Hampton Bays resident, combining two professions, one as councilman, the other as vice president at Bridgehampton National Bank, “has worked perfectly.” Glinka said he’s been working on several different projects since being sworn in, with a major focus on supporting the Southampton business community. Everything from revitalizing hotels, promoting tourism, and encouraging residents and visitors alike to shop locally are areas the councilman (who serves as liaison for the town’s Business Advisory Council) deemed necessary for a more successful business community. “My 21 years in banking really came into play with this,” he said.

“I’ve learned a lot in that time, but now I have the resources to produce something that will really impact the people. I’m also trying to make Southampton a more year-round place, as opposed to just a seasonal one,” he said. Glinka noted some local businesses are struggling to stay

According to the newlyacclimated councilman, there are other segments of the community in need of support, but by looking at the business side of it “more people will be impacted.” Glinka, who identified himself more as a businessman than a politics man, said he was “too cut and dry” to care about the political aspect of his new job. “I’m happy to help, but I don’t have time to be playing,” he said. “However, I’m having a good time with all this so far.” For Bender, all those years of “sitting on the other side of the table” are proving useful in his turn as councilman. “I knew what I was getting into,” he said. “All of my previous involvement really prepared me.

RICK’S SPACE Nurse Ratched I am guilty of a lot of things, but being a chronic complainer is not one of them. I never complain about my health. I’m used to sucking it up and toughing it out at work. I don’t call in sick, I don’t use my sick days, and I certainly don’t look for sympathy from anyone. Part of the reason I keep things to myself is because Karen always assumes the worst. I couldn’t possibly be suffering from a sinus headache: it would immediately morph, in Karen’s mind, into a massive brain tumor. And so it was one morning last week I woke up dizzy. My head was spinning. My speech was slurred. In other words, a normal day. But Karen sensed something was wrong. “I’m taking your temperature!” Now, Karen is an extremely bright person but, unlike myself, she has very little medical training. “Stop fighting me! Stop fighting me!” she said loudly

as she attempted to insert the thermometer in my mouth. “That’s a rectal thermometer!” I finally blurted out. To my chagrin my temperature was almost 102 degrees. I tried to get dressed for work but she would have none of it. “You get into bed. I’ll make you something to help you feel better. Do you want some chicken soup?” “We don’t have any chicken!” “Oh, do I need that to make chicken soup?” (I should point out Karen, unlike myself, has very little culinary experience.) I went to bed and Nurse Ratched approached moments later. Take off all your clothes!” she ordered. She was going to get a Full Frontal, and I suspected, I was about to get a Full Frontal Lobotomy. She was carrying a stainless steel bowl, liquid sloshing about. I got a sniff – it was the unmistakable stench of rubbing alcohol. For those who don’t know,

alcohol rubs are an old school way of bringing down body temperature. It’s the equivalent of being flash frozen. One minute you’re a perfectly virile sweaty man in gym pants – the next moment a pathetic, shivering little gonad weeping from the frigidity, wanting only to leap into a burning fire to escape the Artic chill. “Stooooooooooopppppp!” I screamed as Ratched sloshed the offending liquid all over my body, turning the bed into a massive igloo. “I’m blue,” I finally whispered. “You’re depressed?” “NO MY HANDS ARE BLUE! I’m freezing to death!” Once I was partially paralyzed it was easy for Ratched to have her way with me. She made me a scrambled egg and toast, which she said would be good for me. She shoveled it into my mouth. I tried to eat it, but I began coughing profusely, choking, even gagging. “Oh, you’re not hungry?” “It’s not that,” I said between gasps. “I don’t think you’re supposed to leave the shell in when you scramble the egg,” I said gently. After all, I didn’t want to anger Ratched. Then I heard her rustling through the bathroom closet. “Where’s that darned enema bag?” No, not that, the ultimate indignity. Panicking, I grabbed for my truck keys. (Thankfully, though, Karen couldn’t figure out what end to put the soapy water in.) Unlike the venomous nurse in Cuckoo’s Nest my Ratched didn’t have any sinister motives. Seeing that I was sick, she just wanted to take charge of the situation, because that’s what I usually do. But it was a terrifying thought to realize the

psychiatric patient terrorized in the book was named McMurphy. As I rested peacefully (OK I was in a frigid coma) Karen went out to the store. She brought me all kinds of assorted medicine, and all the newspapers, and some candy, and even crayons, which my mommy always gave me when I was sick. And when Karen couldn’t find any coloring books at the store she came home and printed out clip art from the web of many sports figures that I could color with my crayons, folks like Eli Manning and Derrick Jeter and Jared Leto. I found some chicken soup in the freezer and it thawed while I thawed. When I took my temperature again, it was exactly the same, though. I panicked. “What is your temperature?” Ratched kept demanding. “Perfectly normal,” I lied. Then I let my imagination get the best of me. Maybe I was dying. Maybe I had Lou Gehrig’s disease, or even worse, Rickey Murphy’s disease. Maybe I should let Ratched torture me some more. Then I realized I forgot to shake down the thermometer. Rechecking, I was down to a more manageable 99.8. The alcohol bath had worked. The fever had been broken. Looking back Karen did indeed take charge during my time of need. She nursed me back to health, and stood over me when I was crazed with fever to prevent the forces of evil from wresting control of my soul. She had broken my fever, and I bet egg shells are probably really good for you. Next time I would ask we do only one thing differently – we get an oral thermometer.

EDITORIAL

Making It Go Away A report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office sent shockwaves through Washington last week. The CBO concluded the Affordable Care Act, when fully implemented in 2017, would reduce the American workforce by two million full time workers. This is a stunning conclusion, but an obvious one: employers are cutting positions and cutting hours to escape the huge costs of providing insurance to their workers. Paying workers less shifts part of the burden to the government. President Obama, who in the past has cited CBO statistics when trying to make a point, callously dismissed the report, claiming it was “subject to misinterpretation.” The fact is the White House is reeling and, with midterm elections approaching, desperate to keep the Democratic Party rank and file in line or risk losing the Senate. So it is deliberately suppressing the truth. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid went so far as to say “stories” about the increased costs associated with Obamacare are “untrue.” He neglected to mention the data is pouring in from all over the country. Large retailers, community colleges, local governments, even medical facilities, are all reporting the cost of complying with ACA provisions has become unbearable, and the only solution is to cut jobs, critical or not. Even more callous than the White House ignoring the truth is found at the core of Obamacare: it is funded primarily on the backs of senior citizens. The shortfall built in to Obamacare will be made up from the government’s contribution to Medicare Advantage Plans, a supplement to Medicare that helps seniors cope with the costs of some prescription medicines and life-saving treatments not fully covered by Medicare. Without the federal subsidies to Advantage, seniors on fixed incomes will literally either have to forego needed treatment or sell their remaining assets, like their homes. Cynically and cruelly calculating, Obama sold out the senior citizens of this country, who were more prone to be conservatives that vote for his opponent, for the poor, uninsured whose plight he championed. Poverty-level voters delivered their votes to Obama in record numbers.

Independent VOICES

Lesson Learned

Dear Editor, I happened to be reading Dr. Annacone’s Eye on Education article in last week’s Independent, in which he wrote of one of his most successful teaching events. I was one of his students at that time, in the 1964-65 school year. I still remember the grief he got 50 years later over the water pollution project he had us work on. To be brief, at the time all raw sewage outflow from Sag Harbor’s Main Street stores and the Bulova Watchcase and Grumman factories flowed through a pipe just west of Long Wharf and directly discharged right into the harbor. Dr. Annacone had us plan a course of action on what to do about this problem.

This became a highly controversial project, where the editor of the Sag Harbor Express refused to print our letters about this problem. The Mayor and the village board threatened to have the school fire Dr. Annacone for bringing up this situation. Within a week he told us he had been advised there was NO problem and to drop the project forthwith. While Sag Harbor’s pollution project that we worked on was halted, a lesson was learned on how the old boy network operated in the village. People would not pull their heads out of the sand and see what was happening. The waste was full of heavy metals, including mercury and arsenic from the cleaning solvents used in the factories. All shell fishing was closed. Nowadays such denial by a village board would be unheard of. Those involved would face serious prison time. Dr. Annacone was just a little ahead of his time on this pollution issue. As things go, a few weeks

Think of the lunacy that has now become a reality: senior citizens who worked diligently for 40 years and who pieced together enough to buy a home have medical coverage that is inferior to the coverage the government provides to welfare recipients and drug addicts. Obama is hell-bent on giving those who don’t work everything they need, and that leaves the rest of us to pay for it. But what of the senior citizens who did more than their share for a lifetime and may need a little help now? Are they doomed to die a slow death while their hard-earned money is divvied up among the 47 percent? Come November Americans will have their first real chance to fight back. Let’s make the most of it. The Big Duh A recent press release from Congressman Tim Bishop shows how myopic he is, and how limited a grasp he has on basic financials. Bishop, touting the Obama administration’s call for an increase in the minimum wage, states it would “generate $35 billion for working families” as if the money is going to magically appear out of thin air. Let us try to explain slowly and simply so Tim might have a chance of grasping what is happening. The bill won’t generate ANY money at all. The money will be shifted from the pockets of employers to their employees. Most employers - many of them small business owners — are already reeling from the increased cost of health insurance under Obamacare. Although raising the minimum wage is a noble idea, the truth is it will cost the loss of even more jobs, as employers will likely keep their payrolls the same by excising positions. Yes, workers will have a little more to spend, but their bosses a little less. More redistribution of the wealth – away from the Middle Class.

later we were playing softball in back of Pierson and Dr. Annacone broke his ankle, putting him out for most of the remaining school year. If I recall shortly thereafter, Dr. Annacone went to Puerto Rico and received his doctorate, and went on to bigger and better things. Good to see he is still around and active in education. BRUCE BACKLUND

Less Than Amusing To the Editor, Regarding another of Jerry Della Femina’s less than amusing columns specifically “Cranky Talk,” he might want to look in the mirror before calling others “idiots” a la Chris Christie. Apparently he is a climate denier, which puts him in the same category as those who John Kerry described as believing the world was flat. PATRICIA MASON

Rubber Stamper Dear Editor, Our busybody Congressman Tim Bishop, our very own rubber stampeverything-the-president-tells-him to, is at it again. As the president is hardly shy about redistributing what belongs to someone else; Bishop too, with hands out for illegal contributions to make himself and his cronies wealthier, has no problem reaching into the small businessman’s pockets and deciding what salary the businessman should pay his employees on the basis of what he thinks is fairness and social justice. For the average liberal American who hasn’t a clue about the laws of economics or the laws of physics for that matter, raising the minimum wage sounds great. It makes them “feel” better about themselves to see the wealthy bodega Continued on Page 14.

As of last year, 46,496,000 persons lived in households with income below the

It’s All About The Dress By Kitty Merrill

Movie trivia: in what 1986 John Hughes effort did Iona lovingly hand her prom dress down to her protégé Andie, a girl from the poor side of town? Hint: the dress was pretty, and it was pink. With the average cost of a prom dress running over $300, nowadays there are plenty of girls in Andie’s shoes. The folks at Hampton Bays Library want to help. Hence, their annual dress drive. Beginning next month, people can bring gently used prom dresses or gowns and accessories – shoes, purses, shawls, and jewelry – to the library on Ponquogue Avenue. Theresa Owens, the library’s head of teen services, reported that during last year’s dress drive debut, she and her staff were able to display over 200 dresses in all sizes and colors in a pop up “boutique” on site. About

30 girls outfitted themselves for prom, while others snagged dresses and gear for graduation parties Individuals, local thrift shops, and the upisland shop Estelle’s Dressy Dresses donated items. Owens said she decided to begin the drive last year, because Hampton Bays is “sort of a working class community. We heard some girls couldn’t afford to go to the prom because of the price of the dresses.” Add that to the cost of tickets, accessories, limo, and shoes and the total expense is just too prohibitive. This year, if donors step up like last year, once again local girls

will have a chance at what can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The library’s dress drive motto is “Every girl deserves to go to prom in a dress that makes her feel beautiful.” Donors may begin bringing fancy attire to the library on April 7. From April 28 through the end of June the “boutique” will be open for browsing. Call 631-728-6241 ext. 120 for additional information. More movie trivia: in the 2000 romantic comedy What Women Want, a previously neglectful dad, played by Mel Gibson, learns something important about getting his daughter prepped for prom.

Eye Eyesore, Again

Last fall the owners of a dilapidated house on Abraham’s Path in East Hampton were told to demolish it. May Six LLC pled guilty to two counts of violating the New York State property maintenance code on September 16, 2013. A fine of $1000 was levied and paid and the court ordered the owners the take the ramshackle house down within a month. Nothing happened for five months. Last week the East Hampton Town Attorney’s Office put May Six on notice of continued violations, including a violation of the court’s conditional discharge. According to a release from Supervisor Larry Cantwell, the threat of an impending court filing prompted May Six to seek a demolition permit from the building department. Officials expect the property owners to file the application, obtain the permit, and start work immediately. K.M.

Continued from page 7. environmental review was deemed unnecessary. “That should have been reviewed by the village and the town and to my knowledge it wasn’t,” Cantwell said. A timeline provided by PSEG details a series of meetings between village officials and the utility. “We proposed the overhead option, with the majority of poles being 55 feet,” PSEG spokesman Jeffrey Weir related. “We agreed we would do the work offseason and file for a permit. Several different routes were proposed for the six miles from the village to Amagansett.” The final route, up McGuirk Street, was agreed upon by May 27. Cantwell’s last day as village administrator was July 31. “I don’t care what they are saying. If they want to attack me that’s fine,” Cantwell countered. “The fact is this project is an insult. It’s having a devastating effect on the town.” However, all the new poles are in the village at this point. “I represent all the people,” Cantwell said. “I signed off on Town Line Road, but he approved McGuirk Street and Cedar Street,” said Wilkinson.

Weir said on May 27 the village asked the LIPA team to host an open house and the transition team did so on September 12, inviting the public from the village and from the town to attend. “Then we got the approval” afterwards, Weir recalled. “They [LIPA] set up one-on-one work stations with all the maps. Everything was discussed,” Molinaro said about the public meeting. Throughout the months-long process there was no rancor or hard opposition voiced – including from Cantwell. “There was some back and forth, some recommendations we decided on together,” said Weir. Quigley said she represented the town at a meeting with the electric companies in the fall, after the village had already signed off. She broached the idea of burying the lines, she said, but the utility official and the utility, along with the village had already ruled it out as cost prohibitive. More important, she said, some households wouldn’t be able to handle the higher-wattage lines and would have to be omitted from the upgrade. “ I ’ m t h i c k s k i n n e d ,” s a i d Wilkinson. “But I’m not taking the blame for someone else’s mistakes.” “He’s right,” Cantwell acknowledged. “I regret I didn’t say something to Debra. I should have. I haven’t blamed anyone.”

The Little Bridge That Could By Emily Toy

Last Thursday morning, Sagaponack Village Mayor Donald Louchheim met with the Southampton Town Board to discuss future restoration plans of the 90-year-old bridge located on Bridge Lane in the hamlet. Louchheim, along with the Sagaponack Village Board, is pursuing the legal options necessary to claim full ownership and responsibility of the bridge, which is currently owned by Southampton Town and whose maintenance is under the charge of Southampton Highway Superintendent Alex Gregor. Although structurally sound, the

bridge needs to be rehabilitated. The village is suggesting the town pass on using federal grant money secured by Congressman Tim Bishop, freeing it from having to adhere to the modern codes, much to the chagrin of Gregor, according to Louchheim. If the grant money were utilized, modern-looking steel railings would have to be installed and traffic and pedestrian lanes widened, thus affecting the current aesthetics of the locally cherished bridge. Ownership of the bridge would also let the village take on any project costs above the $500,000 the town’s already committed to the project. According to town officials,

renovations to the structure may cost as much as $1 million. Last December, dozens of residents of Sagaponack and Bridgehampton gathered at the Bridgehampton Community Center to express their concerns over the project, fearing a newly furbished, more modern-looking bridge would change the face and character of the picturesque area. Built in 1923, the bridge used to be owned by Suffolk County, who attempted to demolish it and replace it with a modern steel structure over 25 years ago. According to Louchheim now “history is repeating itself.” “It may not be a historic land-

mark,” the mayor said, “but it’s worthy of preservation as it is. We’ve not had progress with having a dialogue with the highway superintendent on this.” Taking over the bridge may be the village’s only way to “save it,” according to Louchheim. The village’s boundary is in the middle of Sagg Pond, placing about 55 feet of the bridge in Sagaponack Village and the other 35 feet in Bridgehampton in Southampton Town. The entirety of the bridge could be given to the village with town board consent. Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst suggested having a conversation with Sally Spanburgh, chair of the Landmarks and Historic Districts Board, who was in the audience at the work session. “I think we need to continue to pursue this discussion,” ThroneHolst said. “It’s a sensitive one, but it needs to be put into motion as soon as possible. You have a commitment from us.” She’d like to find a way to redirect the grant money Bishop procured.

There were four local high school basketball teams still alive and kicking as The Independent went to press this week. The Southampton Mariners boys’ team was to have played Wheatley for the Long Island Class B championship yesterday. Shelter Island squared off in a Class D regional semifinal against the Section I champion. The Pierson/Bridgehampton girls hit the court yesterday as well, in a Class C regional semifinal game. The Hampton Bays girls were to have played Oyster Bay yesterday in the Long Island Class B title game. Southampton was eliminated last Wednesday from the Suffolk County tournament. In the county, different classification schools compete against each other until an

overall champion is crowned. Southampton succumbed to Glenn 61-52 in the County Small School title game, aka ABCD game. Glenn had been eliminated by Amityville days earlier but the Warriors were subsequently disqualified when Glenn complained Amityville used an ineligible player, an eighth grader. According to Section 11 rules eighth graders can play varsity, but they must pass a six-point exercise to deem they are physically mature enough to play against older children. In this case the youngster, a junior varsity player, didn’t complete the necessary tests and though he played only a few seconds the disqualification was mandated. Naises Fulford scored 16 for

something the town hasn’t always done. “I’ve heard complaints about this issue hundreds and hundreds of times,” he said. Before being sworn in this past January, for years Bender was a general contractor, saying his current position serves, somewhat, as an extension of what he used to do. Bender serves as liaison to the Highway Department, observing the equipment problems the department endured as a result of heavy snowfall this winter. “We’re taking care of it,” he said, praising Highway Superintendent Alex Gregor. Bender said Gregor “did a fantastic job, and he’s on budget.” According to the councilman, efforts are underway on his end to provide the highway department with “town wide fleet management as well as a five year plan for Alex’s department.” Wa t e r q u a l i t y a n d w a s t e management are two additional issues Bender hopes to improve while he’s on the dais. “How we define waste treatment needs to be addressed,” he said. So far, the new position has been a “good fit” for the councilman. “I’m grateful I was selected and I really enjoy what I’m doing. And although there’s lots of things going on, I’m even looking forward to a possible second term.”

And so far it’s been very enjoyable.” For the Northampton resident, the biggest challenge was the “information overload” within the first month in office. “But thank god I was already up to speed on how most things work.” Getting through the details of “housekeeping” was another small challenge Bender noted, adding he believes the current town board is working well together to “not have the same kind of town board” as past administrations. Bender believes the current town board will do a better job of working together for the people of Southampton, noting the newly-renovated town board office promotes more positive interactions between the five board members. Recently the wall dividing the supervisor’s office from the town council’s offices was taken down. Now, the entire town board is housed together, rather than separated into two areas. “I think this will provide for a better interaction,” he said. Bender said his main issues of concern included contractors having the proper insurance, licenses and permits to build within the town and enforcing said laws, which is

Mets Playoff Dreamin’

with the crosstown Yankees. Most notably, management misread the market for Nelson Cruz, who signed for one year with the Orioles, they didn’t want to ante up for Johnny Peralta at shortstop (Cardinals for 4 years/$52 million), and haven’t been willing to pay Stephen Drew. In fairness to Alderson’s front office, Colon’s two-year deal was an ideal stop-gap in the rotation, offering low risk for a potential high reward. The Mets are deep with strong, young arms, there was no reason to spend big bucks in the mediocre free agent pool of starting pitching. But, when dissecting the Mets for the upcoming season, there’s little reason to believe the outlook is any brighter than the 74 wins of a season ago. In a best case scenario, Colon can come close to duplicating Harvey’s production, and Granderson can match Marlon Byrd’s career year. For the Mets to come close to the predicted 90 wins, the stars must align. That means Zack Wheeler making the improvement Harvey made last season,  Travis d’Arnaud stays healthy and becomes a legitimate middle of the order bat, either Ike Davis or Lucas Duda holds down first base while hitting 20 to 25 home runs, and the mix of young and veteran arms cobble together a formidable bullpen. Sure, that is a lot to ask for. But isn’t dreaming what spring training is all about? Yankees’ play-by-play man John Sterling has often said to counterpart Suzyn Waldman, “Well, Suzyn, you just can’t predict baseball.” That appears to be truer than ever before.

With more than a half dozen parades and special events this month, it’s no longer just St. Patrick’s Day on the East End; it’s St. Paddy’s season. And the season kicks off this weekend, when the Westhampton St. Patrick’s Parade Committee is your host for its annual fundraiser. Dubbed one of the East End’s best winter parties, it takes place Saturday from 7 to 11 PM at Agave’s Tequila and Rum Bar on Mill Road in Westhampton Beach and features the Eastern Long Island Police Pipes and Drums heralding this year’s Grand Marshal, plus a DJ and a cash bar. Parade supporters can purchase tickets for an array of raffles with such prizes as a trip to Las Vegas, a giant flat screen TV, $500 cash, or a round of golf at a local country club, not to mention overflowing “wagons of cheer,” and gift certificates for local goods and services. Tickets are $20 at the door. The parade steps off at noon on March 15. Donna Conti will lead the procession. A Quogue resident, she’s the tenth woman to ever lead the parade and is its 48th Grand Marshal. Conti is the third in her family to claim Grand Marshal bragging rights. Her father, Jim Gohery, was the 1995 Grand Marshal and her brother-in-law Seth Allan led the way in 2009. Conti is a longtime member of the Coneheads, described on the

parade committee’s website as “a well-known super-secret group of local residents that puts together a funny and spirited float in the parade each year.” In keeping with Westhampton parade tradition, Conti was tapped to select the theme for this year. It’s “Dream Green.” Those with a yen for drums and bagpipes will have a tough choice to make on March 15. The sixth annual Am-O-Gansett Parade, boasting the distinction of “the world’s shortest parade,” also steps off at noon – well, 12:02 PM to be exact. It runs just one block from Mary’s Marvelous to the Mobil Gas Station, but does draw an interesting crowd of characters, including Mr. Amagansett 2014, who’ll be chosen following a competition at the Stephen Talkhouse on March 13. More parades and St. Pat’s events continue as March moves along, with Hampton Bays the venue for a lively procession on March 22 and the Montauk Friends of Erin hosting a weekend’s worth of activities culminating in one of the state’s largest parades on March 23. The Friends hold their annual Corned Beef & Cabbage dinner at The Point Bar and Grill on March 15 from 5:30 to 8:30 PM. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids. Todd the Guitar Guy provides the entertainment. Call 631-668-1500 for additional info. Stay tuned for more parade details as the month progresses.

St. Paddy’s: It’s A Season

drop in care

When reports surfaced last week that Sandy Alderson had reportedly told Mets management that the team is capable of winning 90 games, my first thought was, “Is Sandy including Grapefruit League and intrasquad wins with this?” The over/under in Las Vegas for Mets wins is 73.5. Their unbiased prediction gives you a much better idea of where this team is projected to finish this season. For my money, I do like the over on Vegas’ number. But, Sandy Alderson and Mets ownership will be waiting until the 2015 season to reach 90 regular season wins. Mets fans have been sold “2014” for over two years. The contracts of Johan Santana and Jason Bay were coming off the books, and they expected a lot of the young pitching to be major-league ready. Unfortunately, once Matt Harvey went down with Tommy John surgery, the organization began building for 2015. That philosophy explains the limited offseason spending and the short term deals (see: Chris Young, Bartolo Colon). The four year contract for Curtis Granderson was a good investment that provided a much needed power bat, and veteran presence. But, the deal was also just as much about saving-face with the fan base, to portray a willingness to spend. According to fangraphs.com, the Mets, at $82 million, will have the seventh-lowest payroll in the majors, and third-lowest in the National League. That is embarrassing for a team in the number one market in the country, and trying to compete for eyeballs, airtime and advertising

Potholes

Continued from page 4. crews are patching as much and as quickly as they can. East Hampton Town Highway Superintendent Steve Lynch said he had guys out on the weekend last month filling potholes on town roads. They use a patch material called “black gold,” that he admitted is temporary. Once the weather warms up, he said, “We’re going to be doing quite a bit of repaving.” His small crew of “really good guys who do a good job” is making a list of target areas. The public has been “very helpful” when it comes to alerting the department to potholes that need work. Lynch, in turn, must alert counterparts in other jurisdictions about wrecked roads in East Hampton. Springs Fireplace Road, for example, is Suffolk County’s responsibility. Drivers who use it are well aware that, until late last week, sections of Fireplace resembled the surface of the moon. Lynch said he spoke to county highway officials and was pleased with their rapid response. County workers are slated to come out next

month to mill sections of asphalt at the top of the road near Floyd Street and near the town recycling center and repave them. As long as this winter’s freeze/ thaw cycles continue new potholes will appear and old ones will get bigger. When snow melts, water seeps through pavement, down from the roadway or up from under the asphalt. If temperatures dip, the water freezes, expands and creates cracks or holes – holes that, even patched, will reopen. State crews were out on Montauk Highway last weekend, but Thiele likened some patch efforts to “putting a Band-Aid on a gunshot wound.” Overall, he said, road crews “have to do the best they can until the weather is warmer.” kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Hampton Jitney Celebrates 40th This year marks the 40th year of operation for Hampton Jitney, a premier provider of motorcoach transportation to and from NYC and the East End. Hampton Jitney is planning several events including giveaways, contests, and specials throughout the year. Kicking off the celebration is a “Design a Jitney” contest. Calling on the wealth of local talent, artists are encouraged to submit designs that embody the Hampton Jitney logo and celebrate the 40th anniversary. The chosen design will be converted into a full motorcoach wrap for one of the company’s fleet vehicles to exhibit throughout the

year. The winner will also receive complimentary Hampton Jitney tickets for travel between NYC and the East End. “Our customers are the reason we have been in business for 40 years, we wanted to involve them in the celebration as a way of recognizing how important they are to us.
