CISPA: Say Adios To Online Privacy By Kitty Merrill

Every email, every text, every status, comment, picture you upload, website you visit, joke you forward. If CISPA becomes law, say “hey” to Big Brother and “CYA” to pretty much every last inkling of online privacy. With a stated purpose of addressing cyber terrorism, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, if adopted, would allow online companies and the government to easily share personal information. In a statement released last week, the hacking group Anonymous called for an online blackout and called the measure “the online equivalent of allowing a police officer to enter your home and start rummaging through your personal files without the permission of a court,” according to an article on the PCWorld website. CISPA is designed to allow better sharing among Internet companies and the government during active cyber threats. Currently sharing classified data about cyber threats between government agencies and the private sector is prohibited. Although major Internet firms opposed an earlier privacy- threatening proposal, known as the Stop Online Piracy Act, they’re on board with CISPA. SOPA, which targeted copyright violations, was defeated, thanks to a grass roots outcry. Big companies like IBM are supporting CISPA because it inoculates them against all liability should they share personal information. Additionally, once they share the data for a suspected threat, they can keep it and share it amongst themselves unhindered. CISPA passed the House last week. Folks like Evan Green from the advocacy group Fight for the Future are hoping another grass roots campaign will take CISPA down. It may be tougher to pass the bill in the Democrat-controlled Senate and President Obama has reportedly vowed to veto the measure based on its infringement on personal privacy. Non-techies may have trouble understanding what the bill is about from descriptions offered by lawmakers. “What CISPA really does,” said Green, “is create a giant loophole in the Fourth Amendment.” It supersedes every privacy policy and law, including those that apply to wire taps. And, because it affects online sites that are international, it’s tantamount to “the United States essentially vetoing every privacy policy in the world.” Critics have called CISPA “vague and ripe for abuse.” Locally, Congressman Tim Bishop voted for the measure last week.

Amendments providing an “easy According to spokesman Oliver fix,” according to Green -- revisions Longwell, “Currently there is no that would follow a premise of “share legal channel for the government to the cyber threat, but don’t share my share information about potential emails” -were shunned during decyber attacks with private industry liberation of the bill – despite expert controlling vital infrastructure like testimony noting it would be easy to the electrical grid, telecommunicaremove non-pertinent data. tions and financial services, and And because the move is so vice-versa.

and say “You sort through it,’” Green explained, leaving the door open for an array of enforcement fishing expeditions. Finally, CISPA could also set the scene for what’s known as a “hack back” -- companies using access to their competitors’ data to their own benefit. Critics have noted buckets of bucks attached to CISPA’s passage. According to the Sunlight Foundation, more than 60 companies and associations have signed letters of support. And spending by supporters outpaced those in opposition – mainly a group of less deep pocketed civil liberties organizations, digital rights groups and Internet companies like Reddit and Craigslist – 140 - fold.

A Three-way For Larry? By Kitty Merrill

With the Republican Party’s contender of East Hampton Town Supervisor, Nancy Keeshan, bowing out, the buzz about a three way endorsement of Larry Cantwell is beginning to build. Were it to come to fruition, it would be one of very few times in the last 20 years that a candidate for local office got the green light from the Republican, Democratic and Independence parties. Legislator Jay Schneiderman got the triple nod during one of his re-election bids, as did Town Clerk Fred Overton, who is currently running for town board with the GOP. Both Schneiderman and Overton, however, were incumbents when they received their cross-endorsements. Cantwell would be an even more rare breed – a cross-endorsed candidate who had yet to hold elected office for the position he’s pursuing. “Is that a realistic expectation?” he asked rhetorically when asked about a potential three way. “I’m open to any and all possibilities,”

Cantwell continued. “I wouldn’t preclude any options, but I’ve been a Democrat all my life. I certainly want the Democratic nomination and the Independence Party nomination. That’s my goal at present.” Zack Cohen, who ran unsuccessfully for supervisor on the Democratic ticket in 2011, has also thrown his hat into the ring, and is seeking the nomination; but insiders feel Cantwell’s the front-runner. There’s a downside to across the board endorsements, Cantwell offered. Campaigns give candidates the chance to debate issues and offer solutions. Cantwell said he’s sensitive to the fact that the lack of such a debate may disappoint some voters. On the other hand, “Clearly the community wants a leader whose goal it is to bring the community together, I hear that everywhere I go,” he said. “The community wants a leader who’s not going to be partisan and will try to work together with both sides. That would be my primary goal.”

www.indyeastend.com

Cantwell spoke of the needs for a consensus builder and a leader who can foster coalitions as a primary goal. So did local Democratic Committee Chair Jeanne Frankl. “Bipartisanship is something to be striven for,“ she acknowledged. Nevertheless, she added, “We don’t feel that we want a Republican endorsement. Larry’s a Democrat. He stands for Democratic ideals. He stands for the Democratic vision we have for the town. This is a very clear vision, a vision of the community getting together to protect the environment, to protect the landscape and deal bravely with issues like coastal erosion. What we’ve seen of the Republican Party has made us feel we’re not on the same page.” A candidate would have to see where common ground is before accepting a cross-endorsement, she opined. “Our rejection of a Republican endorsement does not bespeak a lack of desire to work together,” she emphasized. “I know people are talking about it, I hear the rumors,” GOP committee chair Kurt Keppel said Monday. So far, he said, his membership hasn’t discussed the

April 24, 2013

notion of a cross endorsement. Up until just a few weeks ago, it seemed Schneiderman was the shoo-in for the top of the Republican ticket. He changed his mind about running for the seat, electing to pursue his last term on the legislature. The decision left party members scrambling for a new supervisor candidate. Keeshan stepped up and almost as quickly stepped back. She said she was approached by party members and asked to run; Kappel said she expressed her interest, as did others looking to run for the town’s top spot. “It’s like a chess match,” he remarked. “People are waiting to see what other people are going to do . . . I’m confident we will have a supervisor candidate.” Asked to weigh in on the idea of an endorsement trifecta for Cantwell, local Independence Party chair Elaine Jones said, “That we could actually pick a candidate we all feel could be a good leader to bring civility back to town hall? How well would that speak of our party leaders, to show that willingness to reach across the aisle to heal our community? That would be us being part of the solution instead of being part of the problem.” kmerrill@indyeastend.com

of a shmuck, this week I allowed myself to eat something else that came from the same store. This was one Chernobyl-sized chip that contained, I was told, flax and millet (whatever the hell they are). I was also told this chip was “a great source of fiber.” I remember thinking I need fiber in my clothes, not in my body. One hour later my body was filled with gas, I was doubled up with stomach pain and I felt like I had chug-a-lugged a pound of sawdust. OK, health foods aren’t for me. My question is: Are they for anyone? Is this a big scam? Next to religious fanatics, health food fanatics are the most frightening of fanatics. Forty years ago I went to what I believe was the first health food restaurant in New York City. I sat at the counter and looked at the menu.

and vegetarian chicken liver. I gagged. Then I looked at the waiters and waitresses who served and ate that stuff. Their skin was so pale it looked like they were ghouls living in damp cellars who had never been out in the sun. They all had enormous pimples. Not just good old-fashioned acne, but out and out purple, pimply pizza faces that had been deprived of the salt, butter and chemicals that makes your skin healthy. I got up and fled before they could turn me into one of them. I wonder if anyone has ever done a study of the life span of people who work in or frequent health food stores. Do you know any 90-year-old health food fanatics? I don’t. Over the years I’ve tried to strike a good balance while consuming plenty of salt, olive oil, delicious fatty steak, pasta, wine and vodka, as well as methylcyclopropene, astaxanthin, aspartame, benzoic acid/sodium benzoate, hydroxyanisole, canthaxanthin, potassium bromate and that good old standby, high-fructose corn syrup. Lately it’s been tough to find foods that are bad for me. I can’t stand walking into a supermarket anymore. There’s no stopping the food police. They are relentless and they have crushed the food companies and corpulent America. The other day I went to the supermarket looking for a lousy can of chicken broth. What I like to do when I cook pasta is take a can of Campbell’s Chicken Broth and boil away the water so that I’m down to a few salty, fatty tablespoons. Then I add it to my tomato sauce. It adds a nice flavor to the sauce. However, as I walked up and down the supermarket aisle (the Campbell’s Soup section is the size of my first apartment), there was no good old-fashioned salty Campbell’s Chicken Broth to be found. No, all they had was tons of Campbell’s Low Sodium junk. Now, the Campbell’s empire was built on salt and water and some chicken fat. Take away the salt and all you have is water and a few drops of chicken fat. UGH!

IN THE NEWS

This started me walking from aisle to aisle checking the labels. It was “fat free” this and “low carb” that and “low sodium” everything. Low sodium anchovies . . . olives in water instead of oil . . . tuna in water instead of olive oil. It’s a labeling scam. I read labels that proclaimed fat free pasta and corn flakes and melba toast. Was there ever fat in these products? No, but “fat free” are the magic words. The other magic words are “low carb.” Ever since Atkins proved there are big bucks in trashing carbs, the food companies have jumped on the low carb bandwagon. Every package gives you carb counts. Meanwhile, food tastes more and more like water and cardboard. McDonald’s, that temple of grease, salt and fat, now has a sign that tells you how many calories there are in every item they have. I almost choked on my greasy Sausage Egg McMuffin (451 calories) when I saw that. So where does one go to find tasty foods that will eventually contribute to one’s untimely but happy death? My supermarket search eventually led me to the cake and ice cream aisle. There, among the sugar free cookies and cakes and fat free ice creams, I found my heroes: Ben and Jerry. Yes, those wonderful guys who, along with Al Gore, invented the environment and clean fresh air, not to mention that munchies dream-come-true flavor, Cherry Garcia. Ben and Jerry, the wonderful liberal guys who have contributed millions of their own dollars trying to save your life and mine in so, so many ways; Ben and Jerry, who are against cigarettes and salt and . . . and . . . hold it right there. Ben and Jerry are true to their calling. There is none of that carb free, fat free advertising propaganda on their biodegradable cardboard packaging. They are proud that their ingredients are mostly sugar and pure (and, I might add, delicious) butter fat. Ben and Jerry don’t mind if we pour their delicious butter fat delicacy down our kids’ throats and, it appears, they don’t mind if my arteries clog up and look like a pulsating can of Crisco. I like that attitude. However, I’m sure they would go nuts if I dropped their ice cream near a tree, because all that wonderful butter fat would clog the roots and the tree would die before its time.

Affordable Housing And Al Fresco Dining In Southampton By Emily Toy

Southampton Town may be getting even more affordable housing units for its mixed income population. Last month, plans were discussed to build over 30 affordable housing units on Sandy Hollow Cove. A new condo complex in Westhampton Beach, which could break ground as soon as this summer, would also include eight units of affordable housing. This time around, the units are slated for Jones Road in East Quogue. According to a resolution drafted last Thursday, “the Southampton Community Housing Development Corporation proposes to construct a single family dwelling for affordable home ownership without an accessory apartment on each lot . . .” The properties are located at 9 and 11 Jones Road. The resolution, co-sponsored by Councilwoman Bridget Fleming and Super visor Anna ThroneHolst and slated to be resolved at last night’s town board meeting, authorizes Throne-Holst to sign an agreement between Suffolk County and Southampton Town. That agreement would dissolve a

restriction within the county deed that states the properties must be used by the town for either open space or other suitable municipal purposes. “Both the Town and the SCHDC have determined that the Subject Properties would be better suited for affordable housing purposes and requested the County to permit construction on the Subject Properties for such affordable housing purposes; and the County determined that it would be in the best interests of the County to modify the County Deed to permit the Town and SCHDC to construct an affordable housing home on each of the Subject Properties. . .” the resolution states. Also included in the agenda at last Thursday’s work session was a resolution to amend Town Code Chapter 250 (Outdoor Sidewalk Dining). With summer fast approaching, local eateries will be constructing their outdoor dining sections to attract tourists and locals alike. The purpose of the amendment is to allow smaller restaurants to have a minimum of four outdoor seats: “The Town Board of the Town of Southampton recognizes the value,

both economic and aesthetic, that outdoor dining provides to a resort community such as the Hamptons,” the resolution said. “The intent of the proposed amendment. . . is to permit smaller establishments to have a minimum of four outdoor seats so that those establishments are also able to take advantage of this opportunity.” Upon obtaining an annual license from the Chief Fire Marshal, a standard restaurant, as defined in the town code, may use the

public sidewalk to provide outdoor sidewalk dining. Outdoor seating may be offered at any restaurant in Southampton Town between May and October of each year. “Through this legislation the Town has allowed local businesses to take advantage of the beautiful scenery and streetscapes within the town when serving their patrons,” the resolution said. A public hearing on the amendment was scheduled for last night’s town board meeting as The Independent went to press. Emily@indyeastend.com

bottled water was a frou-frou luxury? Plus, people want to achieve a healthy nutritional balance that allows them to live longer and feel better and they often look to food for that.

Cabinets and closets in American households might currently contain more than 10 gallons worth of harmful chemicals, but with harmful chemicals getting a bad rap all around, experts say this number will likely decrease

each year. Although they’re disguised by names like formaldehyde, phenol, hydrochloride acid, perchlorethylene and petroleum distillates, toxic chemicals lurk in everything from the fragrances of air fresheners to carpet cleaners; dishwasher detergents to furniture polish. There’s plenty of clear evidence that these harsh chemicals pose a health danger, and there are other chemicals out there that have never even been.

Unfortunately, they noted, the beginning of last summer started in a similar fashion for Montauk, when the public bathrooms across the street from The Sloppy Tuna were destroyed with graffiti. A police report has been filed and the police are in possession of the surveillance tapes. The Sloppy Tuna is offering a reward of up to $5000 for anyone having information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator. If you have any information about this incident, contact The Sloppy Tuna at 631-647-8000 or the East Hampton Town Police.

Town Board Hopefuls Screen By Kitty Merrill

As The Independent went to press last night, the local chapter of the Independence Party was slated to hold screenings for a variety of town positions. Local Republicans have already screened for all positions except supervisor; they plan to open up a second shift later this month. The Democratic Committee is continuing to screen and plans to have recommendations by mid-May and announce its slate later in the month. Larry Cantwell and Zack Cohen are both on the agenda to screen for town supervisor. (See additional coverage elsewhere in this edition.) For town board, six wannabes are competing for two positions. Councilwoman Theresa Quigley has decided not to run for re-election and Councilman Dominick Stanzione, a Republican, is running to retain his seat at the dais. Town Clerk Fred Overton is joining Stanzione on the Republican slate. He’s looking to take Quigley’s seat. Although yet to be nominated by the Dems, Kathee Burke Gonzalez, the Springs School Board President, has screened with the party and will pursue a nod from the Indies.

didn’t have a named opponent as The Independent went to press. To w n a s s e s s o r E u g e n e d e Pasquale, a Democrat, is up for reelection; Republican Joe Bloecker wants to unseat him.

Grant For Animal Shelter At the recent 11th annual Pet Peeves gala at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Westbury the founder of Pet Peeves, Inc., Janine Dion, awarded Pam Green, the Executive Director of Kent Animal Shelter, a $10,000 grant.  The grant will be used to spay and neuter 140 Pit Bull and Pit Bull mixes on Long Island. Janine Dion and the Board of Directors of Pet Peeves, Inc. realized the critical situation concerning the overpopulation of Pit Bulls and mixes comprising approximately 90 percent of homeless K-9’s in municipal shelters on Long Island and knew that the only solution going forward is to spay and neuter as many as possible and educate the public about the crisis. With this grant, Kent Animal Shelter will be able help curb the over population problem and help owners with the expense of spaying or neutering their dogs by offering this program at just a $20 co-pay by the owner. The dogs must be pit bull or pit mixes three months and up. The campaign will run through May 31, 2013.  Also in celebration of

Be Kind to Animals Week, (May 5 – 11), Kent will be hosting a free rabies vaccination clinic on Sunday, May 5, from 10 AM to 1 PM.  Other vaccinations will be available at low cost and they are asking for a donation of dog or cat food.  On May 3 from 6 to 10 PM Kent Animal Shelter is hosting a special Psychic Nigh fundraiser at the Hotel Indigo East End. Advance tickets are $45 per person, ($55 at the door), and includes a psychic reading, food, and a Chinese Auction. Call 631727-5731 for more information.

Riverhead School THE CERTAMEN is an annual academic event hosted by SUNY Stony Brook and presented by the Suffolk Classical Society.  Schools from Suffolk and Nassau participate, bringing their best students in teams of four to meet in head-tohead quick-recall varsity bowl-style competition. Questions range from Latin grammar and syntax, to word origins and derivatives, to Roman culture and civilization – everything Latin is up for grabs.         This year a dozen schools from all across Long Island sent teams to play at four different levels. The Riverhead teams fared well, as

usual:  Ms. Custer’s Level 1 team from the Middle School won first place. Second Place was won in the Advanced Level by the RHS team of seniors, who have competed as a team since their middle school days. “All the Riverhead students had a grand day out, and even the Blue Wave teams that did not place could nevertheless stand tall in a very difficult field of avid and well-trained contestants,” said Doc Greenberger, Riverhead High School Latin teacher.

All books were sold for 25 cents and they raised $33.25 that they donated to the PTA to fund more book fairs.  Dr. Katherine Byrnes, Mr. Eric Casale, and Mrs. Elizabeth Scammell’s fourth grade class and, of course, Mr. Osterweil, attended their book fair. Third grader Kimberly Bermeo wrote a letter to the principal Eric Casale in the school’s “brag bag.” She wrote: “Thanks for giving the students a great school year.” The letter was posted on the web site as inspiration to all other students and staff before state testing week. Kimberly is a serious filmmaker who just won an award for her animation at Guild Hall. On April 12th Mrs. Joan Branche and Mrs. Margaret Garsetti hosted Springs Idol to a packed gymnasium. The 12 acts were judged by Mr. Casale, Brenda Crozier and Tatiana Tucci. The winners were Tori Schmitt singing to her own accompaniment on the guitar, with soloist Emma Wiltshire winning 2nd place singing and Julia Kearney, Ashley Rea and Nicole Realmuto winning 3rd place for their dancing.

Over the weekend, Earth Day hikes were led on behalf of the Concerned Citizens of Montauk by students Miles Todaro, Serana Mattiuda, and Sarah-Jane Lynn, who participated in CCOM’s intern program last year.

Said Longwell, “The Congressman based his vote on this bill, as he always and exclusively does, on the interests of the American people, in this case a vital national security interest.” Sunlight’s review of lobbying disclosures revealed proponents of CISPA had $605 million in expenditures from 2011 through the third quarter of last year compared to $4.3 million from opponents. It was emphasized, however, that many of CISPA’s backers have multiple interests before Congress. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

RICK’S SPACE A Tale Of Two Dogs They were nearly identical black and white Whippets, but they couldn’t have been more different. Rudy, fiercely intelligent, a couple years older, ruled the house with an iron hand – not only his younger “brother” Garcia but his titular owners as well. It was Rudy’s house and we were allowed to live there. A dog trainer explained it this way: in a normal household, the dog’s owners sit on a pedestal, and the dog is at the bottom rung of the ladder looking up at the masters. In our house, it was the other way around. “Who answers the door in your house?” the trainer asked. He knew the answer. The two dogs would race to the door, snarling and biting at each other to get there first. Once the poor girl from the Chinese restaurant dropped our delivery on the front porch and ran away at the sight of them, but had she looked carefully, their tails were wagging a mile a minute – they

were excited, that’s all. The boys got hamburger meat, cooked fresh every morning. The front seat of the truck belonged to Rudy – Karen happily sat in the back with Garcia. Garcia had issues. Rudy would eat his dinner while Garcia stood helplessly by. Rudy would sleep on the bed, head on the pillows. Garcia wasn’t allowed in the bedroom at all, until after a series of scuffles, Rudy allowed him the very bottom of the bed, at the feet of his three masters. Once we had the backyard plowed, brought in topsoil, put in a sprinkler system, and laid grass seed. Every morning we’d take the dogs gently by the collar and lead them into a fenced in area behind the house to do their business. Garcia broke away a couple times and the big lug went barreling across the yard like a plow horse, digging a trench and ruining the seeding effort. After two days of going to the pen, Rudy used a different approach – he just

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

stubbornly balked. He looked right at us: “I got this,” his eyes said. So I let him go, and he daintily tiptoed around the perimeter of the yard to do his business, never stepping on a single seed. Garcia never figured it out. Rudy’s time came a few years ago. We spent over $5000 to try every conceivable treatment. The joke was I was probably dying, but I couldn’t afford to see a doctor myself. I learned dogs are not humans: their dignity is such that they don’t want to be weak and helpless – it embarrasses them. There was an amazing transformation in our household after that. Garcia, fearful, aggressive, suspicious, uncomfortable, turned into what Karen called her “mush pot.” Since she works from home, the pair bonded in that special way only a few dog owners are lucky to experience. If she went for a walk around the block, he darted from room to room – up the stairs, down again, to the back room, back up the stairs, down again at breakneck speed — it’s a miracle he never broke a leg — and so on. I finally realized he was going from window to window hoping to catch just a fleeting glimpse of her between the yards or through the trees. Seeing his mommy, knowing she was nearby, soothed his troubled heart. But he loved his Pop, too. During football season he would spend

Sunday afternoons in the man cave with me, probably sensing my excitement. When he stopped eating a week ago Karen ground hamburger meat, rice, and gravy, and hand fed him, a bit at a time. Later, when he stopped drinking too, she used a plastic syringe to squirt a little water in his mouth. Friday night something remarkable happened – he went to her, pushing his head into her bosom, licking her, pushing so hard it was as if he wanted to become part of her. You know the rest. The next night we were alone. He wasn’t coming back. I have a couch in my man cave I haven’t seen since the day we bought it. That’s because it’s been covered with sheets – as are all our couches and chairs – protecting the furniture from Garcia, a sloppy “baby” who relished all things messy. Karen was horrified. It’s too soon, she wailed. I put the sheets back over it. I believe when I die my “kids” – Susie, Fang, Josh, Sheba, et al, will put in a good word for me in heaven to save my wretched soul (Rudy is probably still mad at me for giving him the bones instead of the steak). One thing I know for sure: when Karen comes knocking on heaven’s door no god, man, nor beast will stop Garcia from opening it.

Ask Congressman Bishop Why It takes a lot for Congressman Tim Bishop to jump into bed with the tea-partyists in Congress – in the case of the CISPA Bill he had 168,000 reasons. That’s how many dollars proponents of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act gave Bishop to buy his vote. That was a mere pittance compared to what John Boehner received -- $2.7 million. Pro-CISPA lobbyists have pumped $605 million into the effort, spending 140 times more than opponents. Of course, money of that magnitude buys a lot of votes – a Bishop spokesman proudly pointed out the bill was passed with “bipartisan” support. All that tells us is that money is green to all politicians regardless of their party affiliation. Even President Obama, who Bishop usually walks in lock-step with, has said he will veto the bill in its current form. There is a reason why so many high tech software and telecommunication giants have pumped a small fortune into the bill – it relieves them of all liability when they share our stuff. The ultimate goal, of course, is for them to make more money – money they will get from us. The most potent proponents are Internet giants like Google, Microsoft and IBM and cellular giants like Verizon. When companies of that magnitude so vigorously support a bill, rest assured they know they can make a lot of money of it. For citizens of this country, though, it’s a lose/lose situation: virtually every right and freedom afforded us will be swept away. If signed into law in its current form CISPA will represent a wholesale sell-out of the very freedoms the Constitution protects. Under the guise of stopping cyber crime, the bill will allow the wholesale transfer of information – even our most personal and sensitive secrets – to be given not only to the government but to other businesses. In addition to CISPA, major Internet providers are angling to strip the usage rights

Independent VOICES

Gun Grab To the Editor, Last week’s letter from Peter Koval states that we should be judged by the company we keep and that anyone who opposes the UN’s attempts to disarm American citizens is keeping company with the likes of Iran, N. Korea and Syria. But what kind of company is Mr. Koval keeping when he supports such a treaty? How about the likes of Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Chavez, and Castro?

They all banned private ownership of weapons as soon as they took power. And Iran, N. Korea and Syria didn’t need to sign the treaty because they’ve already disarmed their citizens, and therefore also qualify for membership in Mr. Koval’s club. On the other hand, those of us opposed to the UN’s gun grab are in very good company, namely the Founders of this great country. In their wisdom they gave us a Second Amendment right to possess weapons and to use them to defend ourselves from tyrannical government as well as from foreign invasion and common criminals. A few brief quotes from the Founders might help clarify their view of the matter: “Those who hammer their guns into

The problem is of course, they will undoubtedly shoot first and ask questions later; people will find themselves without Internet access and not even know why. The line is hopelessly blurred between what we can or can’t look at nowadays – it is inevitable that we will draw the ire of Internet giants for perceived violations we didn’t even know took place. Once kicked offline, of course, we’ll have to pay to be reinstated. There is a reason why the American Civil Liberties Union and every major Privacy Group in the United States so adamantly opposes the bill: according to ZDNet, “Its sole purpose is to allow private sector firms to search personal and sensitive user data of ordinary US residents to identify this so-called ‘threat information’ and to then share that information with each other and the US government — without the need for a warrant.” Besides calling Bishop to complain (wait until you hear his mealy-mouth explanation of his vote), readers who understand that this bill could truly catapult the concept of “Big Brother” in ways we could never imagine should call our Senators. The bill passed in the house, and is now headed for the U.S. Senate, where hopefully, the Democrats who haven’t sold their soul will be able to kill this beast. For his part, Bishop claims the money he received was from lobbyists who consistently make campaign contributions and not specifically tied to his CISPA vote. The Congressman, an aide said, also does what’s best for his constituents – like hiring his daughter and giving her a six figure salary, or hitting up a constituent for a huge campaign contribution in return for a favor. When will the voters of this district wake up? Tim, as he has throughout his public and private careers, always does what’s best -- for himself. plows will plow for those who do not.”-Thomas Jefferson “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s teeth and keystone”-George Washington “To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”-George Mason Similar sentiments from the Founders and authors of the Constitution would fill many pages. Sorry, Mr. Koval, I much prefer the company of Jefferson, Madison, Adams, et al, to that of the murderous monsters whose company you want us to keep. The history of peoples who let themselves be

Even Prouder To the Independent Editor, Three cheers for Connecticut! Colt, the firearm manufacturer of the AR-15 is packing up its wares. They are leaving the “Constitution State” and Governor Dannel Patrick “Dan” Malloy for the Lone Star State and Governor Rick Perry.

to 1,000 multi-stars; one being the least intelligent and 1,000 the most, or at least that’s what I heard. Gun makers Stag and Mossberg, presently located in Connecticut, will likely also leave Connecticut and head for Texas. Proud Connecticut has reason to feel even prouder and Texas will have one more weapon maker in their state. Perhaps if enough of them relocate to Texas, they will have enough firepower to finally secede from the union as they have threatened ad nauseam. Promises, promises. KIMBERLY LEE

Puppet Senators To the E.H. Indy, I am so disgusted with the cowardly behavior of some of our Senators bowing down to the NRA and their lobbyists while more than 90 percent of Americans are in favor of universal background checks; a no-brainer. Yet 46 of our Senators voted against it . . . voted against the wishes of the people. That all were Republican senators save for Pat Toomey (PA), Mark Kirk (IL), Susan Collins (ME) and John McCain (AZ) and all against it, protecting their master the NRA; no surprise. But that four Democrats joined them is outrageous. All were Senators from red states and obviously bowed to their constituents rather than trying to introduce them to the 21st century. They were Pryor (AR), Heidi Heitkamp (ND), Mark Begich (AK) and Max Baucus (MT). May they join the party of their constituents and cease being an embarrassment to the Democratic Party. The ratio of 54 pro to 45 con would suggest the majority of Senators wanted the background checks as certainly does the ratio of 91 to nine percent of Americans. So what could go wrong? Ask the NRA and their puppet Senators. So disgusted. NICK PAPPAS

Wake Up Call Dear Editor, Based on the activities of Chinese Army Unit 61398, Communist China continues to wage cyber warfare against the U.S. by hacking into the computers of U.S. corporations. An American computer security firm, Mandiant, completed a study of Unit 61398, and determined most of the attacks on U.S. corporations have emanated

JUST ASKING

By Karen Fredericks

How did you survive tax season? Virginia Winick I requested an extension. Actually, my husband requested it. He does our taxes. It seems like all the tax forms and saving of receipts you need to do to submit your taxes is a lot of work. But - it’s a lot of work for my husband, not for me. Lucille Marfing We did our taxes and we did them on time and we sent them in on time too. Mostly my husband and I do them ourselves. It’s a lot of paperwork and a lot of effort. But I just dive in and do it. That’s how I approach everything in life. Just dive in and do it. Kathy Lanahan My husband does our taxes. I consider myself quite lucky. And this year was an exception to the normal for me because this is the year I retired. So this year, taxes were a whole different story. But I’m glad to say everything turned out well. Jonathan Hillman I got my personal taxes out on time but I had to file for an extension on my business taxes. I guess it’s just much more complicated for a business. And they were done by an accountant. I don’t do my own taxes.

from this group. Companies targeted include electric utilities, gas lines and waterworks. The Chinese also attacked the computer security firm RSA, whose systems protect corporate clients and government agencies. “China steals blueprints, manufacturing processes, strategies and data from our heavy industry companies, satellite and telecommunications corporations and military contractors, including Lockheed Martin, our largest defense contractor.” The biggest concern is the infiltration of systems that control our power grids and other utilities. Unit 61398 broke into Televent Canada, which provides, according to the New York Times, “software to oil and gas pipeline companies and utilities for remote access to valves, switches and security systems. Televent Canada services half the oil and gas pipeline companies in North and South America.” We have to wake up and take action to prevent these Chinese attacks on our corporations, government agencies and infrastructure. Mr. President, please address this problem. DONALD A. MOSKOWITZ

Do Something New Letter to the Editor, Here’s a thought, how about the

Republican Committee inviting Larry Cantwell to screen for the supervisor position? There is nothing in Mr. Cantwell’s agenda that offends me as a voter, taxpayer or resident of East Hampton Town. Next, Mr. Cantwell would have to accept the invitation and present his views to the Committee. Finally, to carry my thought to its logical conclusion, the Republican, Democrat and Independence parties would all endorse Larry Cantwell for supervisor. Think of it! For once, the voters would not have to live through a divisive, nasty supervisor campaign. Board meetings and work sessions with a jointly-elected town leader would have a chance to go back to being civilized and productive – doing the town’s work. A reasoned and focused campaign would have the benefit of producing a supervisor who is “beholden” to the town and all its voters, taxpayers and residents; instead of election of a partisan “politician” who owes favors for his election. No disparagement meant, Mr. Cantwell. However, voters only need look to both local and national elections to know that that seems to be the way it plays out these days with “politicians” and elections. There is a chance here to do something Continued on page 21

new and beneficial for the town. I urge the Republican Committee and Larry Cantwell to talk to each other in a meaningful way. BEVERLY BOND Editor’s Note: Frankly, we were kind of hoping for a nasty, divisive campaign!

Just the Facts, Ma’am Dear Editor, Congressman Tim Bishop said, “Before all the facts are known, it is premature to discuss a public policy response to this attack.” Mr. Bishop, you are partly correct. We don’t have all the facts from Boston, site of the most recent attack by foreignborn terrorists on our own soil. While the Boston investigation continues, can we look at the facts that we do have? FACT #1 Before the attack on Boston by foreign-born Islamic terrorists - yes, we CAN say this now - there were 48 previous foreign-born Islamic terrorists who either succeeded in killing innocent Americans here at home, or were convicted of plotting murderous attacks on our soil. FACT #2 These foreign-born Islamic terrorists were a diverse lot: They came from many countries, arrived over many years, and settled in different parts of our country. They ranged in age from very young students to middle-aged adults, to a blind senior citizen. So, Mr. Bishop, what did all 50 of the foreign-born terrorists who plotted to

kill Americans on American soil have in common? FACT #3 Every one of them exploited our weak immigration laws. Many of these foreign terrorists were illegal immigrants, including convicted Brooklyn subway bomb plotters Gazi Ibrahim and Abu Mezer. FACT #4 Mass Amnesty for illegal immigrants has allowed convicted foreign-born terrorists including Mahmud Abouhalima, leader of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, to remain here when he should have been deported. The FACTS above are indisputable; they’re all from Federal law enforcement sources. Lax immigration laws, and granting mass amnesty to illegal immigrants allows foreign-born terrorists to enter and remain here. Today, there is a new amnesty bill in Congress for illegal immigrants, legislation that Mr. Bishop supports. If passed, the new amnesty would be a gift to future foreign terrorists. Because they are “undocumented” your amnesty would allow all illegal immigrants - including foreign-terrorists - to create new identities and remain here. Foreign terrorists have exploited amnesty before, and they’ll take advantage of amnesty again. But, ONLY Mr. Bishop, if you and others in Congress ignore the FACTS. ELAINE KAHL

Three Arrested In Lottery Scam Three Riverhead men were arrested last Friday after police say they attempted to cheat a local man out of more than $74,000 of his lottery winnings. Last month, a 28-year-old male construction worker brought in several scratch off lotto tickets and one Take 5 Quick Pick lotto ticket to the Valero Gas & Convenience Store on Peconic Avenue in Riverside. Upon scanning the Quick Pick ticket the two clerks at the gas station realized the man had won $74,892. Instead of telling him, they kept the winning ticket and paid him $744, telling him that was the prize. One clerk then gave the winning ticket to his brother, who cashed it in with the New York State Lotto Commission, and according to Southampton Town Police, they split the cash. The victim realized shortly after something was amiss when he learned that only the lotto commission is authorized to pay out winnings above $600 and that the store he bought his ticket in was boasting a $74,000 winner. The victim returned to the store and confronted the clerks without success. After an investigation by Southampton Town Police detectives and the State Lotto Commission, police were able to make the arrests. Yalcin Nergiz, 41, Yunis Ozturk, 33, and Orhan Ozurk, 47, were all charged with grand larceny in the second degree and conspiracy in the fourth degree (both felonies). All three men were held overnight for arraignment. E.T.

trick with the queen of spades, she played the  six of spades, losing to West and discarding the eight of diamonds from dummy. When West led another spade, she won with the ace and discarded the nine of diamonds. Next she led a small diamond to the king followed by the ten back to her ace. When the diamonds split 2-1, South was able to make her needed six diamond tricks. Not many pairs would bid 3N and few of those would find the winning line of play.

After the lead of the spade seven, declarer paused and counted her winners: two spades, one club and SIX diamonds. She could see that she did not have time to set up any heart winners before the

Mariners Try To Fend Off Tuckers

By Rick Murphy

Southampton, 11-1 in the League VIII baseball standings, has a twogame lead, but don’t blame the Mariners if they hear footsteps. The Mattituck Tuckers are making their charge. On Friday the locals drove a few miles west to Mercy in Riverhead and came home with a 7-5 victory. It was Mattituck’s sixth straight win, during which the Tuckers outscored their opponents 62-18. Ian Nish went 2 for 3 against Mercy and drove two runs home, Nish was also on the bump and earned the victory. John Schultz added two hits – a double and a

triple --and a ribbie. Mattituck is 9-3 in league play and 9-4 overall. Southampton, meanwhile, was pounding Hampton Bays 9-1 on the same day. Wyatt Schmidt went 3-4 and laced a three run homer. Kevin Dexter added two hits, and Schmidt was in control all the way to earn the “W.” The two teams open up a three game series Monday, with the opener at Mattituck, and Tuesday and next Wednesday at Southampton. All three games are slated for 4:30 PM. Pierson, 10-1 as of this writing, has a stranglehold on the top spot in League IX, despite losing to second place Smithtown Christian on Friday, 4-2. The Whalers look to get back to their winning games Monday against Shelter Island (4:30 PM). Also on Friday Glenn’s James Groark, a junior, spun a no-hitter against East Hampton, and did it before a home crowd. Groark had 10 strikeouts and faced just one batter over the minimum. Groark lost his perfect game in the third inning because of an error. Bonac, 2-9 on the season and in League VII

Knicks And Nets Revive NY Hoops

The Knicks and Nets kicked off their NBA playoff runs with impressive wins over the weekend. The Knicks beat the Boston Celtics at the Garden 85-78, while the Nets rolled over the Chicago Bulls 106-89 at the Barclays Center. For either team to reach the NBA Finals, they’d have to get through the heavily favored Miami Heat. While that’s unlikely, just watching two area teams playing postseason basketball is a welcome sight. Maybe this will jumpstart basketball in the area and eventually lead to New York restoring its selfproclaimed title as the “Mecca of Basketball.” That title was once appropriately applied to Madison Square Garden but over time, became used to also refer to New York as a whole. A close look at the state of the game would reveal that “Mecca of Media and Marketing” might be a more suitable description for New York these days rather than “Mecca of Basketball.” As the home to all four major television networks along with seven of the top eight advertising agencies, New York can certainly claim the mantle as Holy City of promotion. But the reality is that basketball in the region hasn’t made all that much history of late. While the pick-up games at “The Cage” or Rucker Park are legendary and the city at one time did produce some of the biggest names in the game, the record of the region’s professional teams is spotty. The Knicks just won only their fifth Atlantic Division title since the ABANBA merger in 1976. Meanwhile the Nets, who had a strong history in the ABA and several successful seasons during the Jason Kidd-era, mostly struggled through years of mediocrity in Piscataway, East Rutherford and Newark. The college teams in the region haven’t produced much lately either. For a so-called basketball hot bed, St. John’s hasn’t been relevant in over a decade. The other Division One schools, Fordham, Columbia, and Manhattan also haven’t been very successful. Of the Rivals.com top 150 recruits for 2013, only four play in New York, with none of those ranking in the top 50 nationally. The last significant players to come out of the area are Kemba Walker, Ben Gordon, and Sebastian Telfair. You’d

have to go back 20 years to find some truly memorable names, like Stephon Marbury, Kenny Anderson, Ron Artest, and Lamar Odom. Over the last ten years New York produced nine McDonald’s All-Americans, 14 NBA draft picks, and three NBA lotter y picks. Comparatively, Los Angeles had 20 McDonald’s All-Americans, 38 NBA draft picks, and eight lottery picks, while tiny Washington D.C. had 14 All-Americans, 24 draft picks, and six lottery picks.

www.indyeastend.com

Granted, the numbers are slightly skewed because some of New York City’s better players have migrated to play in New Jersey. St. Patrick in Elizabeth, St. Benedict in Newark and St. Anthony in Jersey City have built the more prominent basketball traditions of late. Even so, the large majority of players on these rosters still hail from the Garden State. From the prep level to the pros, most of New York City’s basketball reputation was built pre-1980. High school stars such as Bob Cousy, Lenny Wilkens, Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar), and Bernard King helped make the city into the “Mecca of Basketball.” But the Knicks last won an NBA title in 1973, and the Nets most recent championship was in the ABA in 1976. East End basketball fans find

themselves in an unusual situation this year. Typically by late April we’re in full baseball mode, but not this spring. The excitement and hype surrounding both the Knicks and Nets has overshadowed our concerns about the back-end of the Mets’ starting rotation or the injuries littering the Yankees roster. Having two NBA teams just six miles apart hosting playoff games in New York City bodes well for a second wind of meaningful basketball in New York City. Can this resurgence trickle down from the pros, to college, and then the prep level? Let the renaissance begin. Pete is a lifelong Montauk resident and former sports talk host at 88.7FM WEER.

Coast Guard Auxiliary News By Vincent Pica

www.indyeastend.com

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

Small Vessel Security Strategy – And You As if the actions in Boston on Monday, 4/15/13, including the murder of three civilians, an eightyear-old and two young women, needed to remind us of the terroristic threats that are out there, we’ve all seen the slogan, “If you see something, say something!” You’ve even read about that and the overarching theme of maritime domain awareness here (see The Independent website at www.indyeastend. com, “If You See Something, Say Something”, 11/5/08; “Back to the Future – With Maritime Domain Awareness”, 3/21/07; “Training for The Unspeakable”, 9/20/06.) And as we’ve moved through time since 9/11/01, we’ve adapted to what threats have presented themselves to us (“Take off your shoes and put them in the bin with your ‘baggie’ of toiletries.”) and that extends to the maritime domain. This column is about that.

D e pa r t m e n t of H o m e l a n d Security and the Small Vessel Strategy It should be no surprise that with the United States Coast Guard as the primary protector of our waters that DHS, our ‘parent’ agency, continues to evolve and refine a strategy for dealing with small vessels. As described in DHS documents, the Small Vessel Security Strategy  (SVSS) addresses the risk that “small vessels might be used to smuggle terrorists or weapon of mass destruction (WMD) into the United States or might be used as either a stand-off weapon platform or as a means of a direct attack with a waterborne improvised explosive device (WBIED).” For the purposes of the SVSS, a “small vessel” is anything under 300

gross tons – which is a pretty wide net to throw out there. Such small vessels include commercial fishing vessels, recreational boats and yachts, towing vessels, uninspected passenger vessels, or any other small commercial vessels involved in foreign or U.S. voyages. This definition distinguishes small vessels from large commercial vessels and yachts (generally 300 gross tons and over) that are applicable to security measures already put in place under the authority of the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) of 2002 and the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code. The risks are, as you read above, non-trivial so the net should be wide. More specifically:

Security Risks for Small Vessels Security risks for small vessels can be broken down into four general categories: Use of small vessels as a conveyance to smuggle weapons (including, but not limited to, Weapons of Mass Destruction/Effect); Use of small vessels as Water Borne Improvised Explosive Device small, explosive-laden vessels used as “boat bombs” against another vessel, maritime critical infrastructure, or key resources; (Remember the US Cole) Use of small vessels as a conveyance to smuggle terrorists into the U.S.; and Use of small vessels as a platform for standoff weapon (e.g. Man Portable Air Defense Systems, SCUD platform for launch offshore) attacks on the maritime industry or critical infrastructure. With that as the set of risks, the

IN THE NEWS

overarching goals of the SVSS are to: -- Enhance maritime security and safety based on a coherent framework with a layered, innovative approach; leverage technology to enhance the ability to detect, infer intent, and when necessary, interdict small vessels that pose a maritime security threat; and -- Enhance cooperation among international, federal, state, local, and tribal partners and the private sector (e.g., marinas, shipyards, small vessel and facility operators), and, in coordination with the Department of State and other relevant federal departments and agencies, international partners. -- Develop and leverage a strong partnership with the small vessel community and public and private sectors in order to enhance maritime domain awareness. Where do we, the citizens of this great country, fit in? Well, if you said “Number four, of course,” give yourself a gold star.

What Is Suspicious Behavior? Well, frankly, whatever you think is suspicious – for your marina, your community, and your waters . . . The Maritime Domain Awareness professionals within US Coast Guard Forces always stress that we can’t develop an all-encompassing list of what is suspicious. It is a little like defining pornography. In 1964, Justice Potter Stewart tried to explain pornography by saying, “I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be [pornography] . . . but I know it when I see it.” It may be the way someone asks you a question, or the pictures that they seem intent on taking of a bridge, or a fuel depot, or a particularly intense focus on a secure perimeter that just sets the hair on the back of your neck up. Don’t ignore that vibe. Don’t worry about looking like a “sky-isfalling-worrywart.” Call it in. Call the National Response Center at 877-24WATCH if there is “Immediate Danger” to Life or Property, call 9-1-1 or call the US Coast Guard on Marine Channel 16. If you want more information, email smallvesselsecurity@uscg.mil or email me below. If you want your own copy of the SVSS, email me below or go to http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/ small-vessel-security-strategy.pdf and download it. 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 . . .”
