Super Race Getting Real By Kitty Merrill The race for East Hampton Town Supervisor is shaping up to be a contest between two born and bred hopefuls – Montauk realtor Nancy Keeshan is the likely Republican candidate and long time East Hampton Village Administrator Larry Cantwell will be the standard bearer on the Democratic ticket. Zack Cohen, who ran unsuccessfully on the Democratic ticket against Bill Wilkinson in 2011 screened with them again and has signed up to screen for the position with the Independence Party, but insiders say Cantwell is the anointed one. It certainly looked that way last Friday, when a veritable “who’s who” in local politics showed up to endorse Cantwell’s candidacy. In this case, though, the who’s who would have been dated circa the 1990s, the ‘80s and even the ‘70s. Colleagues from Cantwell’s first stint on the town board back in the ‘80s, Randy Parsons and Pat Trunzo, were there, as was former Republican town supervisor and

village board member Bruce Collins. Former Town Justice Roger Walker, himself a one time Republican candidate for supervisor, was in attendance, as was an array of Democratic old guarders like Chris Kelley, Bill Fleming, Henry Haney, and former town councilwoman Deb Foster, who appeared to serve as organizer of the event. Not everyone in attendance was a “former [fill in the blank].” Assemblyman Fred Thiele introduced his longtime friend and offered opening remarks. East Hampton used to boast a leadership position on the East End of Long Island, he said, but that’s not the case anymore. “That’s not the case at all,” said Thiele. With an implied critique of the current administration, the assemblyman spoke of the “lost art” of listening to the public. That type of leadership was present back when Democrats Judith Hope, Tony Bullock, and Cathy Lester were at the helm, he opined, adding “We need to go back to the future . . . but we don’t need a DeLorean or a flux capacitor; we need a new leader.”

DID YOU KNOW? Hurricane Sandy destroyed 60 of East Hampton’s 3,700 majestic trees. And DID YOU KNOW that the Ladies’ Village Improvement Society is working to replace and maintain trees with a commitment of $145,000 this year? This money is raised by LVIS through our family of thrift shops, Bargain Box and Bargain Books, our Annual Fair, and by generous donations from you.

Your continued support of LVIS makes it possible for us to help keep East Hampton a place of beauty.

Thiele praised Cantwell as “someone who listens . . . someone who will bring civility to leadership.” “The public is rightfully disgusted with the lack of civility from some town board members,” Cantwell said, adding, “This must change.” He promised even-handed leadership, encouragement and positive motivation for town workers, vigilance and experience in managing town finances (He’s been chief financial officer for the village for over three decades), and respect for zoning and planning. “Believing in planning and zoning and supporting local business should not be mutually exclusive,” he said. “In our hearts, East Hampton is still small town,” Cantwell acknowledged. “In our hearts we value small town quality of life.” Cantwell pledged to honor those values, noting, “More than ever, the people of East Hampton need a supervisor who shares these values.” East Hampton Village A d m i n i s t r a t o r f o r 31 y e a r s , Cantwell also served as an elected bay constable in his 20s. He was elected twice to the town board in the late 70s/early 80s, and ran unsuccessfully for super visor back then. He served on the East Hampton Town Planning Board in the late 1990s. Cantwell offers, he said, “my lifetime of experience living in East Hampton and 37 years of proud public service.” He was an active member of the Democratic committee for 15 years before becoming village administrator. By contrast, Keeshan is a relative newcomer to local politics. In 2010 she was recruited by Supervisor Bill Wilkinson to sit on the town planning board, where’s she’s served since, named vice chair of the appointed body this year. For months insiders expected Legislator Jay Schneiderman to run for supervisor, and a Republican

Larry Cantwell announced his desire to run for town supervisor.

nomination was all but assured. But, with just weeks before official screenings began, he decided to run for his last term on the county legislature, a move that sent the local GOP scrambling for a candidate. Keeshan said she was “very flattered” to be asked, once again, to serve and run for supervisor. Partners with her father, John, in a Montauk real estate firm, Keeshan may be new to politics, but she’s no stranger to community service. She’s been president of the Montauk Village Association and said, “I really enjoy making a difference in Montauk.” The MVA spearheads beautification projects in the hamlet. Keeshan, Cantwell, and Cohen are all slated to screen for the position of supervisor with the Independence Party when it holds its public screenings next Tuesday. Given the “across the board” support Cantwell’s announcement has already received by Democratic movers and shakers, it’s been suggested Cohen might run for town board instead. He declined to comment on that possibility, or whether he’d mount a primary for the supervisor slot should he fail to garner the nod, stating instead, “I’m respecting the protocols requested by the Democratic Screening Committee to maintain silence during the nominating period.” kmerrill@indyeastend.com

East Hampton Needs an Independent Voice on the Town Board Support Councilman Dominick Stanzione A Republican Democrats and Independents Like

DOMINICK SERVES PEOPLE

With excessive partisan politics across the nation, East Hampton is fortunate to have a strong, independent voice in local government regardless of party affiliation. Dominick’s expertise was critical to the financial plan that saved East Hampton from bankruptcy. He cofounded the Group for Good Government and fought for an independent Budget and Financial Advisory Committee. He founded the Amagansett Food Pantry and is a volunteer with the fire department.

DOMINICK PRESERVES THE ENVIRONMENT

Dominick restored the Community Preservation Fund that has saved thousands of acres of open space. Gross mismanagement threatened to undermind the best tool

for preservation. Dominick cleaned up the mess. He then voted to preserve 175 acres of sensitive land. He fought for a waste water policy—the most progressive environmental initiative of the last decade. Dominick devised a sensible deer management plan.

DOMINICK FIGHTS FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOODS

Dominick led the fight for a workable solution to prevent McMansions on small lots in Town. He led the fight to stop a dilapidated sewage plant from polluting our water and our air in Springs. Most important, Dominick led the fight for beach access and beach restoration. Dominick worked hard to reduce helicopter noice. He’s leading the effort at restoring the Amagansett Coast Guard and Life Saving Station.

By going beyond politics, anything can get done. ........................................................................................................................... “Dominick obviously understands the importance of public civility and professionalism and keeping people first in the operations of the Town government. I’ve seen him in action and he is the real deal.” -Paul Scheerer, East Hampton Village “Dominick helped save the Community Preservation Fund from financial ruin. And he voted to preserve hundreds of acres of precious land that would have been developed. He puts the business of our environment first.” -John Kowalenko, Springs “Dominick founded the Amagansett Food Pantry that brings food to the working poor. That shows me something about his head and his heart. He’s leading the effort to preserve our beaches. He helped us save and restore the Life Saving and Coast Guard Station. He walks the walk. Thanks, Dom.” -Kathy Byrnes, Amagansett “Dominick led the fight for a safer airport and less helicopter noise. Dominick takes on tough issues and makes them better. He loves people and really tries to help them.” -Gerard Boleis, Northwest “Dominick led our entire community—Democrats, Republicans, and Independents by initiating a visionary ground water management plan to provide clean drinking water, clean lakes and clean ponds. He stood up to politics and put the environment first, when it counted.” -Dick White, Jr., Montauk

Harbor. I was driving, my wife, the beautiful Judy Licht, was sitting in the passenger seat with our wonderful little pooch Shlomo stretched out dozing on her lap. Now let me explain that earlier in the day we stopped at a store which features only organic health foods and has a wonderful reputation. The store shall go nameless because I have no desire to hurt anyone’s business. I ran in and bought a container of guacamole and a container of tuna fish salad, which we took to our new house for lunch. “Mmmmmmm, this is delicious,” I said as I went for a second helping of the tuna fish. “This is so good,” said Judy, “I’ll have some more, too.” We ate every bit of food; packed up the car and left for the city. We had a book on tape, “The Life of Thomas Jefferson.” Jefferson, it turns out, was a bit of a sex maniac. It seems Jefferson’s poor wife Martha, who was called “Patty,” was dying of exhaustion

as they had six children in eight years. Every chapter of the book started with, “Once again Patty was pregnant.” Upon hearing this Judy would say out loud, “The pig – he didn’t give that poor woman a moment’s rest.” The book give us some wonderful insights as to what went on in the colonies in those days. I think the main problem was that they didn’t have television so their idea of entertainment was to jump on each other every five minutes. James Madison, age 37, who was Jefferson’s best friend, was brokenhearted because his 15-year-old girlfriend left him. Patty Jefferson’s half-sister was Sally Hemings, a slave who Thomas Jefferson took up with after Patty died, and she bore him God knows how many more kids. It must have been pretty confusing, and some of these kids’ brothers were their own uncles, too. Politicians never change. I’m seeing Bill Clinton and Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer in a new light. As our car left Manorville and went on the LIE we suddenly both got very quiet. By Exit 68 I had a pain in my chest that felt like a heart attack. Judy, who is usually the model of feminine decorum, was making these horrible belching sounds. For the next hour Judy was moaning and making the worst sounds I’ve ever heard coming out of a human. I switched to the Northern State to the Grand Central Parkway. The pain in my chest was horrible. Then Judy said, “Onions! It’s the onions . . . the onions in the tuna fish.” This was good news for me because maybe I wasn’t having a heart attack – maybe I was having a good oldfashioned onion attack. Judy and I are used to eating food filled with plenty of chemicals. It dawned on me that natural organic foods may be poison to us. Then Judy let out a bloodcurdling s c r ea m a nd s a id, “S HLO MO ! NOOOOO!” I almost lost control of the wheel.

“WHAT’S WRONG?” I screamed as I watched Judy’s passenger seat sliding forward. It seems that in his sleep Shlomo’s paw had slipped down on the side of the passenger door and hit the lever that moved Judy’s seat forward. This made Judy even sicker. When she finally pulled the dog’s paw away from the door Judy uttered those words that one never wants to hear while speeding 70 miles an hour in a car on a crowded highway. “Jerry, I’m going to throw up.” “Judy, no . . . please . . .” “Jerry, I’m going to throw up on Shlomo.” “No . . . no . . . please . . .” And so it went until we got near LaGuardia Airport. “Jerry,” Judy said, and then she started gagging. “Hold it one more minute,” I begged. Then, cutting off cars, driving like a maniac, I pulled into a gas station on the parkway that houses a Dunkin’ Donuts. I ran in and screamed, “Do you have Pepto-Bismol?” The kid behind the counter, who was clearly in a life-and-death struggle with the English language, gave me a vacant look that said: “We have jelly donuts . . . chocolate donuts . . . sugar donuts . . . cinnamon donuts . . . what the hell is a Pepto-Bismol donut?” “Never mind,” I said, answering my own stupid question. I ran back to the car, opened the trunk and ransacked every bag we had packed. The very bottom of the very last bag yielded a pack of Pepto-Bismol Chewables. With shaking hands I fed four tablets to Judy. If Pepto-Bismol needs a testimonial, I can say that in five minutes Judy said she felt better. Some day, when Shlomo is old enough to understand, I will tell him about the close call he had while he was sleeping on what started as a simple trip back from the Hamptons.

Cromer’s Market: The Latest Skirmish Don’t invite Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst and the Town Highway Superintendent Alex Gregor, to the same sandbox. Clearly, the two do not play well together. The two are tangling again on two fronts: one is a plan to realign Noyac Road by Cromer’s Market to make it safer. The other is a plan to hire an outside consultant to evaluate the highway department’s equipment – at a cost of $29,575. “That’s my job,” Gregor bristled. “That’s why I was elected. I know what we need.” Gregor said he could buy a new truck for the money the town will spend on the consultant. What really rankles him, though, is the town board made the decision in executive session without his input. Throne-Holst said the opposite occurred. “He is invited to every meeting, and he doesn’t come,” she said about Gregor. “He never participates, he never sends a representative.” The supervisor said

decisions about highway matters have to be made without Gregor’s input as a result. “She uses executive sessions as her personal inquisitions,” Gregor charged. Gregor said the town has been studying the situation by Cromer’s for 12 years. The three stores there share a narrow parking area, and shoppers have to back out onto the busy road. Gregor said a recent study estimated that 7500 cars a day use the road in April. An earlier study said the traffic count can be as high as 12,000 daily. The town set aside $480,000 for the project but backed off an ambitious plan developed by Gregor in favor of a more modest stepby-step approach. That’s what the community wants, Throne-Holst said. “The community doesn’t support a plan that will divert traffic into the [Pine Neck] neighborhood. The community came to us and asked us not to do it.” Gregor said the town board members are political animals. “You

come before them with five or more people opposed to a project and they acquiesce.” Gregor is putting the project out to bid despite the fact the town board has to approve the acceptance of the winning bid. “We’ve put in 12 years – the town gave me the money. I want to take this to the end of the road and see how much it will cost.” Elena Loreta of the Noyac Civic Council said the members of her

group are opposed to Gregor’s plan, which will create turning lanes on Noyac Road and an island that will prevent shoppers from backing into the oncoming traffic lane. “Let’s phase in traffic calming,” she suggested, “and see how it works before we do a full-scale change.” She said 95 percent of the membership opposes the Gregor plan, which Loreta said, “would funnel traffic” into Pine Neck, “especially large trucks.” IndependentAd_July12_Vert.pdf 1 7/27/12 4:33 PM “The truck drivers will do what they always do,” Gregor said. “They are going to exit on the east side Your Home is Your and turn onto Noyac Road.” Most Valuable Asset “I’m not going to shove it down So trust a company that’s always here for you. their throats,” Gregor said. “If it doesn’t go through I’m going to do whatever I can to make it safer.”

Seek Anti-Bias Revival By Kitty Merrill

E a r l i e r t h i s w i n t e r, w h e n Councilwoman Sylvia Overby was named liaison to the East Hampton Town Anti-Bias Task Force, she learned the group hadn’t met for several years. “I’m very happy to bring it back and ask for a revival,” she said. Part of that revival involved hosting, last week, a chat with Rabbi Steven Moss, co-chair and cofounder of the Suffolk County Inter-Faith AntiBias Task Force. He offered a history of the countywide ABTF. Back in 1989/90 a group of clergy was invited to come together by then county executive Pat Halpin. Those assembled realized, “People of faith can be healers in the community,” Moss recalled. The task force was formed, and over the ensuing two years, Moss visited every town in Suffolk attempting to help communities understand the importance of the ABTF. They did, back then. And at one time there was an anti-bias task force in every town in Suffolk. Key in establishing the groups was adherence to a basic precept: everyone comes to the table as an equal. “That’s where empowerment comes in,” Moss explained. In most towns, task force members are not appointed. Rather, they are simply identified as key members of the community and invited to participate. That keeps politics out of it, Moss said. The Suffolk Anti-Bias Task Force is the longest running task force in county history. Moss credits the lack of political appointments as responsible for the group’s longevity. Some towns, he said, have ABTF bylaws written into their town codes

to ensure a group is convened. Anti-bias task forces can be reactive and proactive. To give an example of the first, Moss told the story of an African American family poised to move into a new home near the Smith Haven Mall, only to have it burned to the ground the day before the move. Three area ABTFs met to brainstorm a way to help, and within days over 1000 people met the family, hugged them and welcomed them to the neighborhood. The task forces harnessed the energy of the community, the rabbi reported. Moss used a local example to illustrate reactive action. Years ago, he said, Red Creek Park in Hampton Bays was known as “white people’s park.” That segregated view was brought to the attention of the ABTF and when a newly refurbished park was rededicated, a multicultural day was planned to ensure all community members knew they were welcome. That event is still held every year. When it comes to proactive action, schools are critical, Moss said. He informed that for 75 percent of hate crimes in Suffolk County, the average age of the perpetrator is between 15 and 19. Moss was integral in establishing the county’s “Stop Bias” program, the only education program for bias crime in the state. He also spoke of an “ambassador” program run through Islip schools. It’s designed to bring kids from varied districts in the town together. Listing other ways an ABTF may reach out to the community, Moss spoke of anti-bias hotlines, and noted that the Town of Smithtown designates a week each year to fight bias and prejudice. The best thing about ABTFs, he said, is that

Flanders Youth Gets New Playground By Emily Toy

After nearly two years of planning and fundraising, a new playground was constructed in Flanders last Saturday morning by about 50 volunteers, with a few town officials present to commemorate the site. Volunteers from the Flanders/Riverside Community Association, Flanders Little League, Southampton’s Project Venture youth group and others gathered at Iron Point Park, located on Wood Road Trail in Flanders, for the building of the new recreation area. The newly erected community playground, designed with input from Flanders youth and complete with equipment for kids ages five to 12, comes as a result of a $15,000 grant received last April by the Southampton Town Youth Bureau. Plans to add a toddler’s section are in the works for later this year. KaBoom and Dr Pepper Snapple Group awarded the grant to Southampton Town as part of the company’s “Let’s Play” program, an initiative to get children active. The

effort includes building or fixing up 2000 playgrounds nationwide by the end of 2013, slated to benefit an estimated 5 million children. “The playground will be a great addition to the park and will be ready for young families to enjoy right in time for the start of the Flanders Little League season,” said Councilman Chris Nuzzi. The town’s Project Venture youth group originally came up with the project, which has been in the works for about two years already. In total, the project cost about $34,000, with the grant money included. The Southampton Town Board donated $5000. A condition of the grant was the construction of the playground must be a community project. The new park is the second in Flanders and the only one north of Route 24. “The youth in Flanders represent a large portion of their population so it’s important that they have places where they can enjoy being outdoors and get physical activity,” Nuzzi said.

There’s No Peas Like Snow Peas By Rick Murphy

There’s a reason they call them snow peas. They like it cold. When I was growing up they were always the first crop in the ground in Papa’s garden – he would sow the seeds under a cold frame because although the plants grow fast, the seeds are slow to germinate in the cold soil. He’d plant them April 1, and even if it snowed, the little green shoots would pop through after a couple days, searching for the sun. We’d start getting batches of the peas within six weeks, and they would keep coming right through mid-June. Oddly, though they like it cold, they don’t like it hot. Papa would replace his snow peas with bush peas and then pole beans that would be good to go right into November. Papa used a raised bed, and when I grew them years later I also found they came up better the higher up they were planted, probably because the soil is warmer. Using a raised bed will also cut down the number of critters who can get at the plants. Snow peas can be planted close together, 12 to 18 inches or so apart. Papa would stake some small, homemade trellises in between some of the rows – the peas have weak stalks and roots and it doesn’t take much to knock them over. Don’t over-water the plants, but keep the soil moist. There are two compelling reasons to grow your own snow peas: they are rich in vitamins and nutrients, but they begin losing them as soon as they are picked. In fact, a snow pea will lose half its Vitamin C within eight hours of being picked. Ditto the crispiness that makes them so delicious — it begins to fade once the peas are harvested. It’s best to pick them right before eating – serve raw, in salads, or sautéed for a minute or two in clarified butter. By the way, the tender shoots (called Dow miu) and leaf buds are not only edible, but considered delicacies in the Far East. According to the Cornell Cooperative Extension, there are

several tasty treats that go into the ground in early spring provided they have been sowed inside, including asparagus, spinach, cabbage, onion sets and most varieties of lettuce. Don’t hold your breath waiting for the asparagus though – it will take at least three years for an edible spear to appear. Lettuce, like snow peas, dislikes the intense sun and heat, but can handle it cold. Friends I know who have a greenhouse, even a makeshift one, can grow lettuce

almost year round, depending on the severity of the winter, which means you can put fresh greens on the table almost every day. Getting back to snow peas, a good harvest should yield enough for three to four weeks – only pick what you plan to eat that day. They are great in stir-fry recipes, with garlic, and with sesame seeds sprinkled on them. Never overcook snow peas though – once they are flaccid, you’ve cooked out all the goodness.

Envision Outdoor Living By Kitty Merrill

Crocuses begin to push towards a warming sun and the first splashes of green start to show. Just the hint of spring, after a long, long, long winter, sends thoughts ahead to hot summer afternoons lazing by the pool or soaking up rays on the beach. With those first over 60-dgree days under our belts, East Enders’ eyes envision outdoor living, and there are an array of local businesses eager to make your al fresco experience the best it can be.

If you’re on the hunt for unique appointments for your yard, check out Marders in Bridgehampton.

The Leash They Could Do By Kitty Merrill

Members of the East Hampton Village Board will “sit” and “stay” this Friday, as they listen to comments from the public on a proposal designed to regulate dogs on the beach. A c c o r d i n g t o M a y o r Pa u l Rickenbach, the notion of tightening current regs was sparked by “a host of concerns” from constituents: residents complained that dog owners failed to clean up after their pets, and families felt “encumbered“ by loose dogs on the beach, and brought their complaints to the village board, he said. Currently, dogs are permitted to run free on village beaches off-season without regulation. From the second Sunday in May through September 30, they can’t be loose on the beach between the hours of 9 AM and 6 PM. Owners caught failing to pick up after their pooches could face a fine of up to $250. Bags for the purpose of scooping poop are provided. If adopted, the new law would mirror existing East Hampton Town Code, and require dogs to be leashed within 500 feet of road ends. “We researched contiguous municipalities,” the mayor explained, noting, “As you travel west, animals are prohibited completely.” The proposal calling for leashes at the beach entrances is an attempt to balance western prohibitions with town requirements. ”We’re trying to walk on the 50 yard line,” Mayor Rickenbach said. The proposal, he continued, “is the culmination of a lot of months of lengthy discussion.” Early on, the board allowed community

members to weigh in informally as the measure was crafted. “We’re still open to listening to folks,” he said. “I think what we’ll codify will be something amenable to both sides of the issue.” At times, both sides of the issue have harbored ardent opinions, as expressed in letters to the editor in local outlets. Those who favor stricter regulation complain of excessive excrement in the sand, while those in opposition describe the ability to allow their dogs free run as a part of country life. The hearing Friday will be held at 11 AM in the Emergency Services building on Cedar Street. “We’ll see how it unfolds,” said Rickenbach. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

RICK’S SPACE R.I.P. Lumpy Lumpy is dead, and with him goes a chunk of Americana. It’s hard for younger people to imagine what life was like back in the late fifties. For one thing, television was still a new phenomena, and the government – or the producers – weren’t sure how to deal with it. In the beginning, a decade earlier, they simply put radio shows on TV. The trouble with this strategy was that some of the most beloved radio personalities were really ugly. Still there was some interesting dramas, mostly performed live, like the Texaco Star Theater, which featured some of the country’s best actors and directors. Then, there were the comedians – Red Skelton, Jack Benny et al, and of course, the cowboy shows like “The Rifleman” and “Gunsmoke.” But it was the sitcoms that really captured the hearts of Americans, and for this little kid the best was “Leave It To Beaver.” Shows like “Beaver” painted a false picture of the country and probably

alienated a lot of minorites. Beaver’s father, Ward Cleaver, always wore a suit to work and carried a briefcase. His mom, June, always had a dress on and wore a string of pearls. Her signature line was. “Ward, you were a little tough on the Beaver last night.” She probably didn’t mean it was a double entendre but we thought it was. Nevertheless, the Cleavers slept fully clothed in seperate beds. Beaver, played by Jerry Mathers, was a likeable enough kid – except he was a forerunner to what became known in Brooklyn as “juvenile delinquents.” He was always getting into some kind of trouble. He was a little snot-nose, just like me. His older brother, Wally, had two friends: Eddie Haskell, a sarcastic wise guy, and the dim-witted Lumpy. Haskell was the world’s first certified brown-noser: “You sure look lovely this morning, Mrs. Cleaver,” he would warble. One critic described him as “a smiling suck-up who bears a sociopathic soul.” Since Lumpy was so stupid Wally,

Eddie, and even little Beaver got laughs at his expense. Lumpy, of course, usually took it out on the Beaver. Each character represented a stereotypical inhabitant of a lily-white, middle class society that hid its warts and repressed desire. Unfortunately, in real life most kids didn’t live in a big farmhouse in a beautiful rural town. Most kids didn’t have dads who wore ties and suits — a lot of us in the city watched our fathers drag themselves out of bed and trudge off to work in overalls and work shirts, and come home 12 hours later covered in grime. No one drank on “Leave It To Beaver.” Everyone had a family car. There was always a hot meal – a roast, potatoes, bread, vegetables. There were farms and flowers and trees and of course, there was no crime. There were no slums or tenaments in this world created for television. It was one the reasons, educators found out decades later, that kids in the inner city did so poorly on standardized tests: the questions were drawn up for Wally, and Eddie, and Archie and Veronica, and even Lumpy. There was always cake and cookies and a bottle of pop for the kids when they came home afer school. They never had to deal with ripped, dirty clothes, sleep in a cold bed, or eat franks and beans – mostly beans – for supper. Frank Bank, who played Lumpy,

died Monday. In reality he wasn’t dumb at all – he was quite smart. And, his peers said, he was a hell of an actor, so much so that after “Beaver” he was offered a plum role – playing “Archie,” the wildly popular comic book character, on a propsed new television show. The trouble was when one of the producers saw Bank he gruffed, “that’s not Archie. That’s Lumpy!” Bank could never shake Lumpy. He quit acting, became a stockbroker, and among his clients were June Billinsley (Mrs. Cleaver) and Tony Dow (Wally). Soon television would test the boundaries set by the FCC and test the patience of the censors. Nowadays, of course, anything goes. There are no taboos anymore, especially with the advent of Cable TV. When I was seven there were cookies and milk, and roasts for dinner. Mom and Dad (gasp!) slept in the same bed (may they rot in hell). And even though we were in Brooklyn, in the summer we got to live in the country where there were yes, farms and trees, and every kid had a bicycle, just like in Mayfield, where the Cleavers lived. I’m by no means a prude, but if I saw some of the stuff on Cable TV today when I was seven or eight I would have had nightmares every night. Life was better when all a kid had to worry about was the Lumpys of the world.

EDITORIAL

Drawing The Line Though America professes to play by the book, it is difficult to deal with terrorists without rolling in the mud with them, Consider what we have done at Guantanamo Bay prison for the last decade. The movie Zero Dark 30 starkly depicted the despicable torture techniques our government used to extract information from detainees. Oddly, although some government officials complained the movie’s makers were given classified information, few denied the tortures took place. President Obama vowed to close the Gitmo detention center when he was running for his first term in office. He didn’t. Apparently, the prospect of finding and killing Osama bin Laden proved more appealing to him than keeping his campaign promise. Certainly, relatives of those who perished on 9-11 — and those lucky enough to survive – shed no tears. Technically, since we are not at war, the terms of the Geneva Conventions don’t

Immigration Reform Dear Editor, In 2010, Congress rushed through a massive piece of legislation. Written in secret, it was passed quickly without debate, and sold to us as “Health Care Reform.” Today, we’re discovering that buried deep inside the thousands of pages of Obamacare are numerous toxic provisions. These include many that have nothing at all to do with Health Care, including new restrictions on citizens who sell precious metals. As they rushed it through, promoters of Obamacare promised you that premiums would go down. They also dismissed concerns about health care rationing. Today, premiums are up. Rationing has already started, and severe doctor shortages are now projected. So much for reform. Today, Congress is rushing through a

1500 page bill in the name of “immigration reform.” Just like Obamacare, this massive new bill was written in secret with special interest groups bending every word to their benefit. As with so-called health care reform, promoters of the new immigration reform bill are choking off all public debate. What are they hiding this time? They want to pass their secret bill quickly, and let you figure out much later what they sneaked into their bill. As with Obamacare, there are no doubt unrelated, inappropriate and even shocking provisions tucked into the dark corners of this giant new bill. Let’s learn from Obamacare! Reforming anything as big as our health care system or our immigration system is not something to be done in secret or in a hurry. Real reform is not done with special interest groups calling the shots. Get involved: Call your Congressional delegation today. Tell them to vote “no” on this terrible immigration bill, no matter what they claim it does. ELAINE KAHL

apply. But morally – and philosophically – perhaps our country should respect the principles forged at Geneva. It has been 12 years since the World Trade Center attacks. And in the years that have passed we have managed to extract a severe toll on Al Qaida leadership – but too often the unmanned drones sent to kill have blown up innocent civilians. Al Qaida or not, the events in Boston on Monday prove there are still plenty more fanatics out there bent on doing us harm. When we see our children being blown up it is certainly justifiable that we would want to punish those responsible. Certainly, justice should ideally be meted out in the courts of law, where the accused are allowed to defend themselves. The biblical adage is “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Put another way, it’s “what goes around comes around.” It is difficult, watching the events in Boston unfold, to turn the other cheek. That’s for sure.

Special Thanks Dear Rick, Thank you, Rick, for that wonderful spread in the paper on Jacqui and the East End Special Players. It was so generous of you to give us the spotlight and we so appreciate it. MARY SPITZER

Lack of Humanity To The Editor of The Independent, On April 2 this year, the U.N. General Assembly, to a resounding cheer from the assembly, overwhelmingly (154 in favor vs. three against and 23 abstain) approved the first international treaty regulating the multibillion-dollar global arms trade. The obvious goal: keeping deadly weapons out of the hands of perpetrators who would wreak havoc upon their victims. “This is a victory for the world’s people,” U.N. Secretary-General Ban Kimoon said. “The Arms Trade Treaty will make it more difficult for deadly weapons to be diverted into the illicit market. It will be a powerful new tool in our efforts to prevent grave human rights abuses or

violations of international humanitarian law.” Iran, North Korea and Syria were the Three votes against the treaty. America voted “yes,” however there is a contingent in our country that is simpatico with the terrible trio and voted a resounding “no” together with them. It is the NRA, it’s lobbyists and their bought and paid for Congress including politicians in general. Their lack of humanity echoes those of Iran, North Korea and Syria, their comrades in arms, firearms. As Euripides (480-406 BC) stated, ”One can judge a man (organization) by the company he (it) keeps;” Hardly a new observation. PETER KOVAL

Distorted Version Dear Independent Editor, The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) finally passed Congress.

surprise, all 138 nays were Republicans. In the 2012 election, 55 percent of women voted for Obama, while only 44 percent voted for Mitt Romney. The passage of this act alone pinpoints 138 reasons why. Any woman with a semblance of honor should find it contrary to her self pride to vote against her best interests . . . and 55 percent of them did find it so and voted for Obama. Watching Fox on TV, amusingly referred to by the station as “News” one cannot help but notice how attractive their female commentators are. But like a fine Murano glass bowl, beautiful on the outside, hollow on the inside. Obviously the two are not mutually dependent. That they can be the cheering squad for a party that cares not a whit for their safety or security nor that of their sex per se, says volumes of their integrity and self worth. It is hard to understand how they can look in the mirror without seeing the reflection of shame. But then, that has become a symbolic prerequisite for anyone being a part of today’s distorted version of that once grand party of old. ARLENE PHILOMENA

Warning Cry To The Editor, Is it not telling that the former Soviet Union rag, Pravda, wrote this week that America is now a communist country. Will we heed the warning signs the likes of Harris-Perry, Bloomberg, Common Core, Obama’s czars and the UN’s Sustainable Growth? Can’t you see where this is headed? Lean Forward spokesperson Melissa Harris-Perry opined that our children don’t belong to the parents, but to the community, a direct assault on the sanctity of the family and individual liberty. We live in what is left of a representative republic, not a socialist “utopia.” The collective did not give birth, pay for the food, nor buy the clothing for my children, so this childless woman who calls babies “things” cannot have a clue what she is talking about. That MSNBC would use her quote as an ad is beyond responsible. These progressives cannot and will not co-parent our children. They were given to us by God, not the government. They are not community property.

What do you think about the recent proposal to ban unleashed dogs on beaches? Alexandra Perez & Riley I think it’s a good thing for dogs to be on the beach. They need a place to get their energy out. And the beach is a place people enjoy so much and they want to enjoy it with their best friend. As long as people are considerate and clean up I think it’s okay. Phillip Hoffman Even as a dog owner I’m okay with rules that don’t allow the dogs on the beach between 9 AM and 6 PM. But it’s important to be respectful of people who don’t like dogs, too. People shouldn’t let their dogs run loose and scare people. That wouldn’t be fair. Rick Crane If people pick up after their dogs then they should continue to be allowed on the beach. I guess some people don’t like dogs so they’re not going to like them on the beach. Dog owners need to be aware of that and not let their dogs run amuck and frighten people. Jim and Laura Ross The current rules are fine. Dogs can go on the beach after 6 PM until 9 AM. Of course, people need to pick up after their dogs. But people who make campfires at night, leave garbage and don’t clean up after themselves are just as big a problem as dogs on the beach. A teacher just told me that in The Bronx, where Common Core was instituted earlier, all books unrelated to Common Core were boxed up and put out on the street for the trash pickup. When a teacher tried to retrieve some of the valuable literature from the trash heap, she was fired. In Utah all non-curriculum related books were mandated to be boxed and put outside the classroom, where they were removed from the school. Hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer funded textbooks and library books from each school are being destroyed to indoctrinate our children in this new transformative education, which is based on psychological, convictional and behavioral testing. Has it started in your school yet? What happened to teaching them American History, spelling, math, reading, and critical thinking? Somehow, in the old system, we turned out amazingly well educated people who have led the world in discoveries, improvements, medicine and science. Now they’re changing this for what? Bill Gates, a major contributor to this Common Core curriculum has stated that

“this is just the beginning.” Are you willing to hand over your children and freedom to the state? The warning cry to parents is to get engaged now, be at every school board meeting. To voters, be very, very careful who you support to lead our country, state and towns. Wake up and defend our God given freedom. If you’re not enraged, you’re not engaged. LYNDA A.W. EDWARDS

Warped Incarnation Dear Rick, It is hard to believe that our normally cognizant President Obama would think that appeasing today’s warped incarnation of the Republican Party would have them reciprocate in kind. By caving to their demands that Social Security be on the chopping block, he not only angers his base, but further encourages the Repubstructionist Party to continue being the Party of “no” since it eventually gets them what they want . . . especially if they can, as a bonus, manage to severely damage our country during his time in office. President Lincoln, where are you now when your party so sorely needs you? NICHOLAS ZIZELIS

When a local Long Island breeder lost his home, he called RSVP to take his dogs. The all-volunteer group is not as financially endowed as some of the more popular rescue

organizations but sometimes less is more. Four female dogs were surrendered and removed from the population of animals bred for profit. They were vet-checked, spayed, boarded and good homes are being sought. But RSVP needs your support. If you can, adopt, please do. If you cannot, a tax-deductible donation will enable them to address petoverpopulation and keep animals out of local shelters. Mail to RSVP Inc., PO Box 335, Eastport, NY 11741, call 631- 533-2738 or visit www. facebook.com/rsvpincli for more details.

Springs School Seventy students from grades 4 to 6 will travel to Suffolk County Community College on May 21 for the Conference for Kids. The students are members of the Academic Enrichment Program (AEP) and had the chance to choose the courses of their choice from forensics to theatre. Students in 5th grade are designing posters for their DARE graduation, led by Officer Kim Notel. The posters must include facts from the program illustrated creatively. The winners will be announced in May. Maria Gonzales, Patty Hicks, Ilaine Bickley, Lindsey Thayer, and Sean Knight traveled to Columbia Teacher’s College at Columbia University to learn new ways to integrate science experiences into their classroom writing. The entire student body was rapping Teach Me How to Study as they danced around the gym April 10 in preparation for the ELA State Tests with a cameo performance by principal Eric Casale. The idea was originated by Lindamarie Capotosto by writing the lyrics for this rap incorporating all the skills needed to do well on the ELA. A group of her students filmed and edited the musical video and then taught it to all the grades who joined in the chorus. A sequel is being planned.

Main Beach Restoration

Last week bulldozers moved to replenish some of the sand lost to Super Storm Sandy. The pavilion at East Hampton Main Beach has stood up to lots of storms in its day – and Super Storm Sandy revealed why. “That’s the benefit of building on pilings,” Village Administrator Larry Cantwell pointed out. The storm surge pushed tons of sand ashore - but rather than mowing down the beach pavilion, it washed underneath the structure and came out in the parking lot behind it. Sand was pushed all the way to Hook Pond, but caused only minor damage to the structure. Cantwell said the pilings “were driven deep into the ground with a crane hammer.” Still, the cleanup will cost the village $250,000. “That includes all the building repair, the parking lot, and the road installation,” Cantwell said. Terry Contracting won the bid for the job and spread 2000 cubic yards of sand, gradually grading it down from the pavilion to the water line. Mother Nature is doing her share as well. “It’s amazing how wide the beaches are today,” Cantwell said, noting that beginning at this time of year the flow shifts from an erosive angle to a restoring angle. “The beaches are coming back.” R.M.

World Traveling Au Pair Offers Insight

Independent/Cindy Garruba

Batty Bak (front, center) with au pairs from the Au Pair in America program.

Patty Bak, a former Indy intern, was the guest speaker at an Au Pair in America gathering, hosted by Cindy Garruba in Riverhead on Sunday. “We had a great meeting and the current au pairs were really inspired by Patty’s story,” Garruba reported. “While Patty was an au pair in 2009 and 2010 she never had a wasted moment.” She worked with a great host family, volunteered at the local hospital, Southampton Fresh Air Camp (in the office), and of course The Independent. Current au pairs learned she did the volunteering to learn more about what she wanted to do with her future. A participant in the Au Pair in America program called

IN THE NEWS

Global Awareness, Bak went into classrooms and did age appropriate presentations on both of her home countries -- she was born in Poland and then moved to Germany where she spent half her life. Bak returned home after spending a year and a half as an au pair, and then an additional travel month where she traveled all over the USA. She got a Greyhound Bus pass for a month and went all over the country. Then she went home and worked. She taught pre-school, taught English to adults and worked at a local newspaper. “Again, never a wasted moment,” Garruba said. After a year, she quit it all and decided to visit the friends she made as an au pair in their home countries. She went to Thailand and New Zealand. Through all these life experiences, she decided she really wanted to teach children and come back to the USA again for an extended period of time. She found a program where she can be in the USA and teach for up to three years. She is teaching in a German immersion pre-school in Brooklyn since September of 2012. “Patty spoke to my cluster of au pairs today showing them pictures and describing how the time as an au pair impacted her life,” Garruba said Sunday. Touted as the nation’s first and largest au pair program, Au Pair in America combines live-in childcare and cultural exchange for a mutually rewarding and enriching experience for the entire family. Since 1986 they have placed more than 87,000 au pairs in 40 states. Headquartered in Stamford, CT, Au Pair in America maintains offices in five countries and has a network of more than 600 employees worldwide.

Concert for Concerts Sunday The Montauk Chamber of Commerce will hold its 5th Annual Concert for the Concerts on Sunday from 3 PM to 7 PM at Zum Schneider restaurant, located at 4 South Elmwood Ave in Montauk (formerly known as Runaway’s and Oyster Pond). A family friendly fundraiser, the Concert for Concerts was conceived by Nancy Atlas of the Nancy Atlas Project to keep the program alive, when town funding for the Monday Night Concerts on the Green ended in 2009. The original concert included Nancy Atlas, Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks and Caroline Doctorow and the Steamrollers, held at the Old Harbor House. This year’s concert will feature Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks, the 3B’s, The Blue Collar Band, Ray Red, and for the children, entertainment by Miss Melody from 4 to 5:30 PM. The performers, who are all involved in the summer series, donate their time and talents to support the Montauk Chamber of Commerce Concerts. The Chamber was able to expand the program two years ago to include four summer concerts at Gosman’s Dockside Stage. A donation of $10 per person can be paid at the door and kids accompanied by an adult will be admitted for free. There will be a 50/50 drawing and several raffles including Spa Passes to Gurney’s and tickets to the Atlantis Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead. All proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the Summer Concert Series - Monday evenings on the Village Green starting at 6:30 PM in July and 6 PM in August and at Gosman’s Dockside Stage on Sundays at 7 PM.

Pierson Bashes Southold To Stay Undefeated Rich Murphy

The Pierson/Bridgehampton Whalers are in the midst of another great season – to say the least. Thursday the locals overwhelmed Southold 12-0 on the North Fork to run their League IX record to 8-0. Earlier this week, playing in the cozy confines of Mashashimuet Park, the Whalers beat the same team 14-9. Forrest Loesch was on the bump for the winners on Thursday and he had his good stuff working, allowing just three hits and fanning six in five innings. Loesch did it at the plate as well – lashing three hits and recording three ribbies. Aaron Schiavoni had four ribbies, and he and Nick Kruel each had two hits. To m o r r o w s e c o n d p l a c e Smithtown Christian comes to town for the first game of a home and away – the Whalers hit the road Friday. Greenport plays at Sag Harbor on Monday. On April 9 Schiavoni went 3-for-4 and accounted for three runs. Tim Markowski came on in relief and earned the win. Southampton suffered its first loss of the season but the Mariners clung to their lead in League VIII with an 8-1 mark. The Mariners were upended at home Saturday by Center Moriches 6-3. Garret Pike took the loss, his first of the year. The Mariners had bested the Red Devils on April 9 14-10. Pike had with two hits, two runs scored, and two ribbies. Tom Backman went 4 for 5.

Coast Guard Auxiliary News By Vincent Pica

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

Cat’s Paws To Grey Beards: Wave Theory And Practice Waves can be the most beautiful and the most fearsome aspect of the sea. Whether you float above them or dive beneath them, you had better understand them and most certainly respect them. This column is about that.

Winds Are Known From Whence They Blow, Currents By Where They Go A northerly wind means a wind FROM the north, thus blowing you south. A northerly current means a current heading TO the north, setting you in the same direction – north. What does that have to do with waves? Largely, waves are the offspring of the wind. Ignoring for the moment that wave action can be created by tidal forces sluicing through a narrow channel, waves are created by the wind. When the water is fairly still, as you’ll often see early in the morning, and the wind starts to pick up, those little over-lapping wavelets, called the Cat’s Paws, will eventually build into something significant. The greater the distance that the wind has blown over the water unhindered by land (called its “fetch”), the greater the size of the waves. If you ever wondered why mariners for centuries have feared Cape Horn at the bottom of South America, it is because the “fetch” there is essentially infinite. Wind can blow continuously, unimpeded by land, around the entire planet in the space between Cape Horn and Antarctica. Again. Again. And again. One hundred-foot waves are not impossible. Packing A Punch The “sea state,” which can be characterized as the sum of the height, frequency and direction of waves, is the key to understanding comfort – and safety – of any passage over the water, even more so than the strength and direction of the wind. Anyone who has ever been caught in six foot seas that are but six seconds apart in frequency would gladly trade them for 10 foot waves that are 30 seconds apart. The first is a kidney-busting

beating; the latter is a sleigh ride. Of boats that sink at sea, slightly more than one in 20 of them sink because they break apart from the pounding of the waves upon the hull. BTW, for very different reasons, four times as many boats sink at their dock than sink at sea.

So, I’m Heading Out To Sea – How Are the Waves? One of the unsung heroes of our maritime services is NOAA and their National Ocean Service. They, along with the Army Corps of Engineers, understand how important wave action is and maintain 70 wave-gauging stations placed around the coastline of the United States (including the Great Lakes) collecting data on wave height and direction in near-shore areas. Now you can get an hourly update from these stations, direct to your cell phone. I get Buoy #44017, which is 23 nautical miles southeast of Montauk. Go to www.buoyalarm. com to find the buoy or buoys you want to monitor. Oh, and it is your favorite price. Free. Surf Happens, But How Do I Gauge It? For the more scientifically inclined, the energy within a wave is proportional to the square of the wave’s height. Like many things in nature, a four-foot wave isn’t four times as powerful as a one-foot’ wave. Four-foot seas are 16 times as energetic as one-foot seas, all else being equal. How much energy is in one of those 100-foot “grey beards” passing by Cape Horn, compared to a four-foot wave in Moriches Inlet? Do the math. Not 25 times more powerful (100’ x 4’) but 625 times more powerful! But things are rarely equal. A long, slow, four-foot sea is one of life’s great pleasures at sea. What matters is how close together and how steep those waves are. A good way to compare waves for steepness is the wave height divided by the square of the frequency period. This is essentially how fast your sleigh ride – or the beating you are going to take – is going to be. Halving the frequency period (from, say, 10 seconds to five

www.indyeastend.com

seconds) of a wave quadruples the acceleration of your sleigh ride, and more than likely multiplies the sea sickness aboard the boat. Another way to gauge what awaits you at sea is a Severity measurement. This indicates the amount of energy carried by each bit of wave and is proportional to the energy of a wave (the square of its height) divided by its wavelength (how much distance the waves are apart, measured from peak to peak.) As you can probably do in your head, six-feet waves that are six feet (distance, not time) apart are more severe than six feet waves that are 12 feet apart. We don’t need the Cray computer for that one. In a subsequent column, we’ll get into different kinds of waves –

April 17, 2013

tsunamis, deep, shallow, non-wind, etc – and the effect they have on mariners. But this column will hopefully get you thinking about safety before you leave the dock. Here’s one more – what is the longest wave on Earth? The wave that is created by the moon, pulling the water up and around the Earth. What is its Frequency? Email me with the answer! 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, at DSO-HR and we will help you “get in this thing . . .”

Golf Stays Global The storylines out of this year’s Masters Tournament continued to mirror those that have developed across the PGA Tour over the past three or more years. While Tiger Woods may have ascended to number one status, the level of competition from throughout the globe has leveled the playing field and any number of players can win in any given week. Despite the claims I made in last week’s article, Tiger Woods once again fell short on the game’s

biggest stage. The strength of the field proved, as it has so many times in recent years, that neither Woods nor any other golfer should be a 2-1 favorite to win a Major tournament. This Sunday we saw a very good player, Adam Scott, finally break through to potential greatness. For a few moments, while Angel Cabrera and Adam Scott got set to tee off in sudden death, I even forgot Woods had participated on Sunday. That might have been understandable had Woods been a dozen strokes

back. But at the time he was in the clubhouse tied for 4th place. The thrills surrounding every shot of sudden death once again showed that the game can hold fan interest with or without Woods. At this year’s Tournament the intensity and pressure were natural, and the stories told themselves. It was the same during last year’s sudden death playoff between Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen. That event ended with a victorious Watson wiping away his tears on his mother’s shoulder. When Tiger is front and center, it can seem forced and over scripted even though it may be a TV producer and sports anchor’s dream. Cabrera and Scott, an Argentine (who doesn’t speak English) and an Australian, continued to show the worldwide popularity of golf. Scott did what fellow Australian Greg Norman couldn’t do in 1986, 1987, and 1996: finish off a win at Augusta. Cabrera became the first Argentine to win a green jacket in 2009, and was vying for his second one on Sunday. Of the last 12 Major championships, only three have been won by Americans. Meanwhile, Guan Tianlang a 14 year-old Chinese player, was the youngest Masters golfer ever and the only amateur to make the cut. Guan finished at 12 over par and took 14 fewer putts than Phil

IN THE NEWS

Mickelson over the Tournament. With over 1.3 billion people and a fast growing economy, will Guan’s accomplishments bring a whole new presence to the tour? His postTournament interview would lead one to believe so. As for Woods, he had one of the more bizarre weeks in recent Masters memory. His two stroke penalty for questionable ball placement had the potential to become a major storyline. Yet ultimately it was Woods’ inconsistent putting that did him in. In the first round he used the putter 34 times, and didn’t make a putt longer than six feet. As has been the story for going on three years, Woods will need to straighten out the flat stick if he is going to mount a challenge to Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major victories. T i g e r Wo o d s c h a n g e d t h e sport and made golf a worldwide phenomenon, ironically spawning the improved competition he now faces. Not only did Tiger not regain his authority over the field this week, the field, and the world, continued to establish they’re here to stay. And that’s OK with me.
