THE SURE THING When I was 19 years old, and broke as broke can be, I was a shipping clerk/messenger by day and went to Brooklyn College at night. I also worked part time at Hy and Ann’s candy store on Avenue U, which was in Gravesend, an Italian neighborhood that was proud to be called by Senator Estes Kefauver, “The Breeding Place for Crime in the United States.”

The boys of Avenue U were made up of two groups. Simply put, there were the good kids and the bad kids. My group was the good kids. We never got into any trouble and all of us went on to work hard all our lives and to raise fine families. The bad kids never worked and just about every one of them wound up in jail, and those who weren’t found dead in the trunks of their

On January 1, 1932, the US Post Office issued 12 stamps carrying likenesses of George Washington to commemorate the 200th anniversary of his birth. The Post Office took care to place the popular Gilbert Stuart portrait on the 2-cent stamp, the normal first-class letter rate. However, several months later, the letter rate was raised to 3 cents, but because the 3-cent bicentennial issue was deemed uncharacteristic, the Post Office chose to revamp the 2-cent stamp, converting it to 3 cents and printing it in the magenta color, thus creating a 13th George Washington stamp in 1932.

flashy Cadillacs are now in the Witness Protection Program and, I suspect, are living in fear in some hot, dusty town in Arizona. Both groups played the horses. Everybody on Avenue U played the horses. In my group some of us would pool our money, pack into a car and drive out to Roosevelt Raceway on Long Island. We went late because we couldn’t afford to pay the price of admission and still bet, so we had to wait until the last race of the night. That’s when Roosevelt Raceway would throw open the doors to the track and anyone could walk in for free to bet the last race. There was one night that I can still remember. There was a “tip” in the neighborhood that there was a “boat” race at Roosevelt. That meant a race that was “fixed.” There was a horse called Rusty Don and he couldn’t lose. How do you lose a fixed race? The good news was Rusty Don was running in the last race. Six of us pooled every penny we had in our pockets and we had $37. We jumped into my car (a broken-down 1948 Chevy convertible that cost me $70), put a dollar’s worth of gas (three gallons) in the tank and raced out to Roosevelt Raceway. Rusty Don was a beautiful horse. He just looked so much more handsome, stronger and faster than any of the seven other trotters in the race. Plus, the race was fixed so, as I said, how could we lose? I had put up $6. It was every penny I had, but the odds on Rusty Don were 4-to-1, so when Rusty Don won, I would make $24, which was more money than I made for a full week’s worth of work. The excitement we all felt was incredible. We all were laughing and so happy that in a life of betting the wrong horse we were finally backing a winner. Even though life for so many of the boys of Avenue U was already fixed against them. The race went off and Rusty Don took a big lead. We nudged each other and shouted “wire to wire.” When he came to the head of the stretch Rusty Don was ahead by nine lengths. I remember thinking if I rush for the window now I can be first on line to get paid. But then Rusty Don’s lead went from 9 to 7 lengths . . . then 6 . . . 5 . . . 4 . . . 3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . . It almost looked as though Rusty Don was trotting in slow motion. When

the horses went past where my friends and I were standing, seven of them passed Rusty Don. The horse who couldn’t lose had finished last. The winning horse paid $42. The fix might have been in, but we had bet on the wrong horse. The looks on our faces were of pain. We didn’t have a penny left among us. We rode back to Avenue U in complete silence. Not a word. I looked at my friends’ faces and they had a look I will always remember as “The Rusty Don night at Roosevelt Raceway” look. It was an expression of profound sadness and disappointment and embarrassment that you can see when you look into the eyes of a loser. I didn’t think of that look for many, many years. I went to a cocktail party in New York City a month ago and it was filled with some very nice people who are this city’s leading Democrats. They are bankers, hedge fund guys, investors, heads of corporations. They are New York’s leading Democrats. They are smart, nice people. They backed Barack Obama with tens of thousands of dollars in 2008 when he was all about Hope and Change. They drank the Kool-Aid. They believed in him then. They don’t now. Now when they mention Obama in 2012 they have this sad look on their faces and they keep shaking their heads. They mumble, “But Romney?” as though this will explain their vote – if not to me, at least to themselves. I remember talking to one brilliant man who has been a lifelong Democrat and I remember thinking to myself, “That’s the Roosevelt Raceway look my friends and I had when we realized that we had bet on the wrong horse.” The only difference is I never went back to the track and bet on Rusty Don again. Sadly, in November my Democrat friends are going into a poll booth to bet once again on the wrong horse. Or are they? As I said, they’re smart people. Maybe in the privacy of a darkened voting booth they’ll see the light. If you wish to comment on “Jerry’s Ink” please send your message to jerry@ dfjp.com.

Soldier Ride The Hamptons: Ready To Roll

By Matthew Sprung

July 4 has come and gone. The holiday offers East Enders a time to reflect on the thousands of soldiers and veterans directly affected by wars, past and present. Before the patriotic fervor wears off, community members may use the heightened national awareness of patriotism to participate in the annual Soldier Ride The Hamptons Saturday. Soldier Ride, with events throughout the nation, was created by the Wounded Warrior Project and rolls into the Hamptons on Saturday. Founded in 2002 by John Melia, who served in the US Army and was injured in Somalia in 1992, WWP’s

website lists three clear goals: “To raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.� More succinctly, their mission statement reads, “To honor and empower wounded warriors.� For veterans returning from Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and other waractive regions, transitioning back into civilian life can be difficult. Taking into account injuries as well as psychological damage, makes the transition even more challenging. The Soldier Ride events were

of the then newly formed Wounded Warrior Project. Wide coverage by Fox News placed both Carney and Wounded Warriors into the national spotlight, in turn raising over $1 million in donations. The Wounded Warriors Project used the momentum to create a plethora of Soldier Ride events throughout the country, with participation increasing most years. Just how big have the Soldier Rides become? Ask President Barak Obama, who last year kicked off an event, saying of Carney, “Seven years ago, a bartender from Long Island . . . wasn’t from a military family . . . but he knew that he owed our military something. He was just an ordinary American who was grateful for the service of all those who wear the uniform. And he said, ‘I just wanted to give something back.’ – Today, we want to thank Chris Carney and everyone from the Wounded Warrior Project for reminding us of our obligations to each other as Americans.� Participants this weekend can choose between a 30-mile and 60mile bike ride or two 5K walks in Amagansett and Sag Harbor. Registration opens at 7 AM on Saturday, followed by an 8:30 AM kick-off celebration at Ocean View Farm in Amagansett, where the 60mile bike route commences at 9 AM. It heads from Amagansett up to Sag Harbor, circles back east to Montauk Point, and then turns back to finish at the farm. The 30-mile ride is from Ocean View Farm to Sag Harbor and back, excluding the Montauk section. The Amagansett 5K walk starts at Ocean View Farm at 9 AM, moving along Bluff Road and wrapping around Montauk Highway back to the farm. The Sag Harbor 5K walk begins at 9 AM from Marine Park, goes over the Jordan C. Haerter Memorial Bridge, moves along 114 and ends on Short Beach Road. CONTINUED ON PAGE 42.

Sheer Nonsense Airport opponents attack the new Control Tower as an ineffective tool to reduce helicopter noise in our neighborhoods. They claim helicopter noise is far worse than ever. Sheer nonsense. Helicopters are flying this year at much higher altitudes than last year according to official East Hampton Airport flight records. This happened because the Tower was coming. Higher flights mean less neighborhood noise. In addition, there have been 34% fewer helicopter flights in 2012 than last year. Fewer flights mean less neighborhood noise. The airport tower controllers started just a few weeks ago and are working hard to reduce helicopter noise in our neighborhoods. Are some helicopters still flying too low? Yes. Is more work needed to reduce noise in our neighborhoods? Yes. But early results are encouraging. Peace and quiet in Northwest Woods is on its way. Airport opponents want to close the airport by eliminating the Control Tower, rejecting FAA repair funds, and jamming the noise complaint hotline. And that is sheer nonsense.

Southampton Town Police Scandal

Another Lawsuit Alleges Police Corruption

By Rick Murphy

A convicted drug user has accused the now-disbanded Southampton Town Police Street Crimes Unit of setting him up in court papers filed last week. Craig Chillemi alleges cocaine was planted on him by an undercover police officer, and that he was wrongfully imprisoned as a result of their actions. It was yet another hit on the unit, which is under siege on several fronts, including an active investigation by the Suffolk County District Attorney and the town police’s Internal Affairs division. The court papers specifically name Lieutenant James Kiernan

and Police Officer Eric Sickles, both of whom are under suspension ordered by the Southampton Town Board. Sickles is at the epicenter of a scandal that not only could result in scores of convictions being overturned, but also in huge civil court judgments the town is ill equipped to pay for. Kiernan faces a slew of interdepartmental charges; Sickles has not been officially charged with wrongdoing beyond unspecified interdepartmental charges. The allegations are that Sickles functioned as a member of the Street Crimes Unit, making undercover buys, making arrests,

and carrying a concealed weapon, while he was addicted to drugs and that Kiernan was aware the officer had a problem but allowed him to continue working. Sickles spent a considerable time in a drug rehabilitation clinic. After his release from the clinic, he was suspended before he could return to active duty. Two convicted felons, Mohammed H. Proctor, 36, of Riverside, and Bernard T. Cooks, 31, of Southampton, were recently released from prison by order of Suffolk County District Attorney Tom Spota, who said evidence used to convict them was tainted – the Street Crimes Unit and Sickles

Proctor subsequently sued Southampton Town for $50 million, claiming among other things that police threatened his son to coerce him to sign a false statement implicating himself. On Thursday Chillemi filed a $1 Million suit, naming Kiernam, Sickles, and a third member of the street crimes unit, Detective Thomas Tully. The accuser, though, has a checkered past to be sure, according to Kiernan’s attorney, Ray Pirini. “This is a desperate man saying ridiculous things,” the attorney said. Chillemi is currently in jail, the result of a federal indictment, charged with conspiracy involving “manufacturing scripts [counterfeit prescriptions] and selling oxycodone,” Pirini said. T h o m a s A . Te l e s c a o f t h e Uniondale-based law firm Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, is representing Chillemi. He charged that Sickles had it in for his client because Chillemi was dating Tara Tully – Detective Tully’s daughter – and that Sickles had a romantic interest in the woman. In fact, the Street Crimes Unit arrested Chillemi twice. On the second occasion, Telesca said Sickles set his client up. “Sickles pulled up in an unmarked car in a driveway in Hampton Bays and said [to Chillemi] ‘You can’t drive a car.’ Craig said ‘I wasn’t driving.’” Tara Tully was driving, the attorney maintained, but Sickles handcuffed Chillemi nonetheless, according to court papers. Sickles then produced a packet of cocaine that he said he found on Chillemi, Perini said, “even though he never put his hand in Craig’s pocket.” Chillemi pleaded guilty to a reduced charge, believing it wouldn’t affect his probation status. Instead, “He ended up going back upstate for 14 months as a direct result of Sickles wanting to date Tara,” Telesca said. Sickles has not been charged with any criminal wrongdoing and the town board did not state specific reasons why he was suspended without pay. Spota said 100 cases involving the Street Crimes Unit are under review, and he expects additional prisoners will be released because evidence used to convict them was tainted. Most are likely to sue the town, itself a potentially catastrophic event – as reported exclusively in The Independent, Southampton Town has virtually no liability insurance and has set aside very little for legal fees.

Kidd In Cuffs, Kyle In Jail

By Kitty Merrill and Rick Murphy

It’s just not summer in The Hamptons till somebody rich and famous gets locked up. This year, the

dubious honor goes to Jason Kidd, of the New York Knicks, who was charged with drunk driving over the weekend. Kidd was spotted shopping in East Hampton Village Saturday afternoon with his wife Porschla Coleman but later in the day, according to published reports, he started partying. In the evening, according to the NY Daily News Kidd attended a benefit party at   William Nuti’s East Hampton home honoring Star Wars filmmaker George Lucas. At the party, reportedly hosted by rapper Ne-Yo, the Kidd posed for photos with Lucas, Paula Abdul and others. Things heated up later at the nightclub SL East in East Hampton, where he was said to be drinking heavily and behaving wildly, at least to hear the tabloids tell it. At some point his wife left but Kidd kept partying Southampton Town Police responded to an accident near the intersection of Cobb Road and Little Cobb Road in Water Mill just before 2 AM Sunday. The Kidds have

a house nearby. According to the Southampton Town Police report, Kidd was the sole occupant of a 2010 Cadillac Escalade that hit a telephone pole and bounced into the woods. Kidd, who was listed as a resident of Dallas, Texas, was taken to Southampton Hospital for treatment of minor injuries and was booked at police headquarters for DWI after allegedly refusing to take a breath test. Kidd finally was released on bail, returned home, but ended up back at the hospital on Sunday, according to published reports. He returned home Sunday evening. Kidd, 39, was recently signed by the Knicks to mentor emerging star Jeremy Lin. In what can only be described as a surreal twist of fate, Lin then signed a lucrative contract with Houston, prompting the Knicks to sign Ray Felton, who was traded away two years ago after playing poorly in New York. The Knicks had until yesterday to match the Houston offer for Lin, said to be $25 million. In other news of noteworthy, or notorious, drivers this week, Kyle Soukup, 27, of East Hills was popped for DWI and resisting arrest in Southampton Village earlier this month. Last week he was indicted by a grand jury for counts of felony DWI, felony aggravated unlicensed

operation, resisting arrest, speeding and other traffic infractions, plus operating a vehicle that didn’t have a court-ordered ignition interlock device. Soukup’s name was in the news in 2002 when he was sentenced to three years in prison after causing the death of a Westbury couple. He was drag racing upisland in a 2000 Corvette against codefendant Blake Slade who was driving a 2002 Mercedes, when the pair slammed into the couple’s Jeep with such force it split in two. Police said Soukup and Slade were driving at speeds twice the maximum limit of 55 mph. The victims planned to be married in August of that year. According to court documents, Soukup refused all chemical tests related to the July 6 arrest. He told the Southampton Village police officer he was driving from 7-Eleven to the house he’s renting on White Street. He also said he’d had a single glass of wine. The defendant was unable to produce a valid license. The most recent suspension of license according to DMV records was on April 28. On that date, records show, he pled guilty to misdemeanor DWI in NY County Criminal Court, and was sentenced to three years probation with alcohol treatment conditions. He was additionally fined $750. Soukup was remanded to Suffolk County Jail in lieu of bail -- $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond. His next court date is in August. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Suzanne LavenĂĄs, 69 Suzanne LavenĂĄs, an editor and year-round Montauk resident, died in a car accident on July 4. She was 69. Ms. LavenĂĄs was known for her generosity and sense of humor. “She was funny and very loyal. She had so many friends from different walks of life,â€? said Simone Monahan. “Suzy was big-hearted and was always there to listen . . . she would do anything for anybody,â€? said long-time friend Debbie Tuma. “The thing about Suzy is that she helped out a lot of people,â€? said her sister, Tilly LavenĂĄs. “She was a soft touch. She even bought a house and let someone live there for years rentfree. She was always lending her car out, and friends would stay with her for months on end. We joked that half of Montauk had a key to her apartment.â€? Daphne Prior knew Ms. LavenĂĄs for more than 40 years. “With her go so many shared memories of a special time, a special place. Of the time we demonstrated against the Vietnam War at the Pentagon and of the Columbia student demonstrations just blocks from where we used to live.â€? Ms. LavenĂĄs was also a friend to cats. Gerry O’Brien recalled one chaotic scene a few years ago when she walked into Ms. LavenĂĄs’s apartment in Montauk Manor. Suzy and the vet were trying to catch Suzy’s cats to trim their nails. “There was overturned furniture, upside down tables, cats flying through the air. But this didn’t bother Suzy as her cats were her priority.â€? Ms. LavenĂĄs was a fervent member of Alcoholics Anonymous, which she joined in 2005. “It quite simply saved her life,â€? Tilly LavenĂĄs said. “She met the most amazing people there. It’s as if they all banded together to help her overcome her addiction.â€? Ms. LavenĂĄs was born in Buenos Aires on December 17, 1942, the daughter of Carlos Fernando LavenĂĄs and the former Mary Sharp. Her father was an Argentine businessman and the family shuttled back and forth between North and South America for two decades. When she was 12, her mother became concerned about her children’s welfare shortly before Argentine President Juan PerĂłn was overthrown in a coup d’Êtat. She persuaded her husband to move the family to the U.S., where they lived in Ohio, Kansas, Oklahoma and New Jersey. Ms. LavenĂĄs graduated from Casady School in Oklahoma City in 1959 and studied history at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. When her father was transferred to Sao

Paulo, Brazil, in 1965, Ms. LavenĂĄs went, too, and taught at the American School. She spoke fluent Spanish and Portuguese. Ms. LavenĂĄs moved to New York in 1966 and for 20 years she worked for Travel Weekly as its production editor. Her job took her to many countries in Europe, Asia and Australia. In 1982 Ms. LavenĂĄs married Wesley First, a retired newspaper editor. They moved to Montauk six years later, and she continued to edit

www.indyeastend.com

on a freelance basis. Mr. First died in 2000. She formed a business partnership with Montauk resident Carolyn Carson, and the two worked together on many editorial projects. In 2010 Ms. LavenĂĄs was an area supervisor for the U.S. Census Bureau. “She was really a modern woman,â€? Ms. Prior said, “ahead of her time, highly intelligent, astute and wellread; she was an outstanding editor and ran her own business. There will never be anyone like her, with her eager smile, her warmth, her willingness to reach out and save someone, or some animal in need, her commitment to those she loved.â€?

Russell Kratoville and Deputy Supervisor Frank Zappone met with the town board to discuss the Request for Proposal to provide group health insurance last Friday afternoon. “This is an attempt for the town to receive broader and less expensive health insurance,” said Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst. The RFP for health insurance would include current employees of the town and retired ones as well. Kratoville added that the town board for some time has been looking at alternatives for health insurance. “The RFP gives the opportunity for various types of companies to work on something that reaches

the requirement of being equal to or better than what the town carries currently,” he said. That requirement is mandated by the town’s union contract. In an attempt to lower premiums, the town board is looking to move the RFP and related resolution forward to meet an August 15 deadline, where they then have to make a choice about who they are going to choose as a carrier. The RFP, modeled after the one used for Suffolk County, would be totally independent from other municipalities and would also be designed to receive proposals from multiple insurance companies. Forming an internal evaluation committee, with union members as a component, was also discussed. “The first step is to get proposals to consider,” Throne-Holst said. Kratoville added that this is all about “improving the town’s insurance plan and saving money.” Specifics of the insurance plan were not discussed at Friday’s work session, although Kratoville added how the town board deals with coordinating all types of benefits, based on the idea of having proposals with multiple companies, for employees would have to be locked in. “This proposal also includes an emphasis on a wellness program,” Kratoville said. “Having a strong wellness program would mean less in premiums.” Supervisor Throne-Holst said the whole point of having the RFP was for the town to “see what is out there.” “This is the first step, to go out with the RFP,” she said. “We need to see what else is out there and what can grow out of something like this.” A copy of the RFP was not available by press time but was scheduled to be up on the town website tomorrow morning, according to Throne-Holst’s executive assistant Janice Wilson.

Get those earplugs out and prepare to be dazzled! This weekend, The Clamshell Foundation presents the Great Bonac Fireworks Show over Three Mile Harbor in East Hampton. The fireworks are back for the 32nd annual show after a 30-year run that benefited Boys and Girls Harbor camp for inner city youth. Red, white and blue will wave in the wind and explode in the sky this Saturday. The works start firing at 9:15 PM. The Clamshell Foundation is known on the East End for its annual Sand Castle contest at Atlantic Beach in Amagansett, which is going on its 19th year running. The foundation is a notfor-profit organization that donates 100 percent of all of its profits to “the people, programs, and projects here in the Town of East Hampton,” according to its website. Over the years Clamshell has raised over $110,000 in local grants and all contributions are tax deductible. They’re still passing the hat to help underwrite the fireworks show. Donations can be mailed in and made payable to: The Clamshell Foundation, PO Box 2725, East Hampton, NY 11937. Happening simultaneously, The Duke family of 178 Springy Banks

Road will host an event to benefit The Max Cure “Roar f o r a C u r e” Foundation for pediatric cancer and Fundación Amistad, founded by Luly Duke. Max Cure is a “public charity dedicated to advancing cures for pediatric cancers, funding the development of less toxic treatments for children. They also provide low-income families with emotional and financial assistance and seek to inspire children afflicted with cancer to face the disease with bravery,” foundation officials say. Fundación Amistad works to fostering better mutual understanding and appreciation between the peoples of the United States and Cuba. Those who attend the Max Cure event will get to see the pyrotechnics show, but the entertainment does not end with the fireworks, folks.

Boat Party Gets The Boot

By Emily Toy

It can still happen, just not in Sag Harbor Cove. So suggested Sag Harbor Village Mayor Brian Gilbride in an interview Monday afternoon concerning the annual Sag Harbor Boat Party. The village board of trustees passed legislation last week expanding its mass gathering law in an effort to prohibit the boat party from occurring in Sag Harbor Cove. The Cove, which for the past couple years has been teetering with its health, according to Gilbride, has been the host of the event for the past three years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Southampton Town Trustee] Jon

Semlear spoke very well about the health of the Cove at the meeting,â&#x20AC;? Gilbride said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the area being so environmentally fragile, having the party there causes a lot of concerns and has for a while.â&#x20AC;? The new legislation requires anyone hosting an event anticipating more than 75 people - whether on land or water under Sag Harbor jurisdiction - must first obtain a permit from the village. The only problem is that with the boat party, no one individual person takes sole responsibility for it. In past years, the 20-year-old nautical shindig has taken place at Barcelona Neck in East Hampton

and waters near Shelter Island. Both East Hampton and Shelter Island have passed legislation to regulate the event through permitting, which pushed it into Sag Harbor, where there used to be no permit requirements for parties on the water. Historically, the event has drawn anywhere from 100 to 300 vessels, whose owners and passengers spend the day listening to music on a barge supplied by the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizers. Since the boat party has moved to Sag Harbor, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten a lot of calls and complaints from residents from Bay Point and Redwood,â&#x20AC;? Gilbride said. Most residents of the

two neighborhoods are opposed to the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can have the party, they just have to do it somewhere else. With the warmer weather weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been having, an increase in septic systems, having the Cove closed due to poisonous algae blooms this past spring, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just made it that much more fragile,â&#x20AC;? the Mayor said. Although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a one day event, Semlear said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;To have 300 or 500 or 200 boats anchored in areas we have been working on with the Department of the State and the Cornell Cooperative Extension to get eel grass to grow is contradictory to what we are trying to accomplish.â&#x20AC;? Both Semlear and Gilbride think it best to have the boat party in an area outside the cove where there is better flushing. In order for the party to move forward in Sag Harbor, a principal must come forward and pursue a permit from the village, which will be considered by the village board. Bay Point resident Charlie Canavan was rumored to be the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizer, though he denounced that last week and deemed himself a mere fact finder for the event. Usually the boat partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exact coordinates are kept â&#x20AC;&#x153;hush hushâ&#x20AC;? up until the day before, and sometimes, the day of the event. If the party continued on without proper permits and in the upper portion of Sag Harbor, Gilbride said, enforcement action would be taken and the barge would be ticketed. Canavan, according to the mayor, could also come under liability should the party occur without proper due course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They could go after him,â&#x20AC;? Gilbride said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong in the Cove.â&#x20AC;? Emily@indyeastend.com

A Growing Phenomenon By Kitty Merrill

Into every life, a little rain must fall . . . then what happens? From an environmental standpoint stormwater hits the roads and sidewalks or pesticide treated lawns and farmland and seeps, replete with pollutants, into the aquifer. How best to manage stormwater runoff is a challenge that furrows the collective brow of many a municipality.

reported. Once established, they seldom need watering or fertilizing. The project was funded through the Environmental Protection Fund. The Suffolk County Soil and Water Conservation District, the Natural Resource Conservation Service and the Farm Service Agency all committed to provide planting assistance and maintenance. “This demonstration project provides a great benefit to the environment without a substantial effect on parking space. I want to thank the staff of the Soil and Water Conservation District for their leadership on this project and the Department of Public Works for agreeing to think outside-the-box of traditional parking lot design to construct this rain garden,” said Romaine. According to the Rain Garden Network, building a rain garden is probably the easiest and most cost efficient thing you can do to reduce your contribution to stormwater pollution. A rain garden can mimic the natural absorption and pollutant removal activities of a forest, or a meadow or a prairie and can absorb runoff more efficiently, sometimes as much as 30 to 40 percent more then a standard lawn. Capturing rainwater in a rain garden, holding the water for a short time and then slowly releasing it into the soil can reduce the rush of a large storm – quickly, neatly and naturally. Because rain gardens are dug four to eight inches deep, and in some cases just one to two inches deep, they hold larger quantities of rainwater making their overall construction more cost efficient then other green alternatives. Rain gardens also need less technical experience to install and can be installed without permits or heavy equipment. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

RICK’S SPACE Blue Jean Babies Saturday was a perfect beach day, but like most guys I had man-chores to do. I was in the truck early, headed to the hardware store, over to the brickyard, then to the gardening center, and of course to get a manicure/ pedicure. Even though it was a perfect beach day, real men – men like myself – use Saturdays to do the heavy lifting man duties we inherently deal with as a consequence of being manly men. And that means driving around in our pick up trucks and listening to sports-talk shows on the radio. I had on normal blue jeans. At one point in my life, though, I wore bib overalls - the kind they wear in Oklahoma – without realizing how ridiculous I looked. Put it this way – there were more teenagers wearing overalls in New York City than there were in the entire Midwest -- and that was so wrong. By the time I was in college we had taken our blue jeans to the extreme. We wanted old jeans, with holes in

them, and we wanted them faded, and we wanted them bleached out. This confused our parents. “Mom, I need money for a pair of old blue jeans.” “You have a whole drawer full of old blue jeans,” she’d answer. “No, I want new old blue jeans.” No wonder they thought we were all on drugs. People could get arrested for what we did to the jeans. First we’d cut off the bottoms so they would be frayed. Then we cut some holes in the knees. Then we’d bleach the hell out of them until they were so thin and brittle they were falling apart. I caused the single biggest catastrophe in the history of the Murphy household when I took it upon myself to bleach my jeans in the washer. Every single thing in the house – underwear, sheets, shirts, had a blue tint on it for the next five years. Even the inside of the dryer was blue. Every time my mother did a load of wash she would glare at me. In fact, even 40

years later, there is still a slight blue tint on everything she wears. It wasn’t enough for us to wear overalls or old jeans. Some of the guys starting wearing suspenders and talking like Walter Brennan on “The Real McCoys.” There is nothing sadder than a kid from Brooklyn limping around like an old farmer in West Virginia. (I myself preferred to be called “Little Luke” and insisted on calling my buddy “Pepino.”) You are probably thinking we couldn’t have looked more ridiculous had we tried, but you’d be wrong, because suddenly bell-bottoms were all the rage. Soon, the bottoms were getting wider and wider, the trend morphing quickly into what were then called “elephant ‘bells’” There was more material on the bottom than there was at the waist. And of course, we’d get them six inches too long, so when we walked we’d be dragging yards of denim with us. It actually became difficult to walk -- we kind of sashayed. The fad didn’t last long. Soon Disco replaced acid rock and ushered in the Designer Jean era, wherein real men were subjected to the same kind of jeans the women wore. Worse, we were forced to wear frilly shirts and (gasp!) some of us started wearing designer shoes instead of sneakers. We all looked like John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, and we all know

IN THE NEWS

how he turned out. This was indeed a dark time for America, but thank god Chevy, Ford and Dodge continued to make huge gas-guzzling trucks to remind us who we really are. So anyhow, I did all my manly chores Saturday thinking I could wash and wax the truck on Sunday. When I read about droughts in the Midwest – how crops wither, how wells go dry, etc. it astounds me. Farmers would pay Medicine Men to pray for rain and crop dusters to fly into the clouds. What a waste. The easiest way to make it rain is to hire me to wash and wax my car. I could drive out to the most barren place on earth, the driest point in the entire country, and make it rain within minutes simply by waxing my truck. Sure enough, it started raining on Sunday five minutes after I finished waxing, negating all my hard work. I put on my old comfy jeans and ended up watching baseball on TV. There is something about a man and his truck, though. As I sat on the couch, there was Big Blue, glistening even in the rain. I couldn’t resist taking it down to the beach and getting it all dirty. That’s how real men roll – we clean our trucks just to get them dirty again. That’s pretty much how life works – we get knocked down, we get up again. As long as we keep our pants on we’ll be okay.

EDITORIAL The Wild Wild East It’s been quite a summer so far. On a bright note, the weather has been outstanding – just about every day is a beach day. But our pristine beaches seem to have more trash on them than ever before. In Amagansett, throngs of beer guzzling partyers show up at the once-sleepy Indian Wells Beach. On other beaches commercial enterprises run businesses right at the shoreline as if it were a pop-up mall. Thousands of partyers show up in Montauk. One night an out-of-control brawl raged for half an hour as the hopelessly outnumbered cops tried to restore order. Our roadways are a nightmare. It seems like there have been more serious accidents than ever before. People are dying. Pedestrians are getting hit – a teenager was killed on Old Stone Highway in Amagansett; a mother and child were clipped in Sag Harbor. Huge SUVs driven by impatient motorists speed, pass illegally, and put everyone else on the road in danger. There is litter everywhere it seems – the winding roads that go through the woods, the back roads that only locals used to know. Who are these people who throw bags from fast food restaurants onto our roads and beaches? Who are these

Independent VOICES Let It Be To The Editor, Re: the editorial in the July 13 issue of The Independent “Occupy Somewhere Else.” Obviously the author of this editorial does not actually live in the “Hamptons” during the summertime. If the person did live here, they would realize dozens of events are staged here on weekends, holidays, at historical meeting places, in parks and on our beaches, regardless if the purpose is for fundraising, breast cancer, school trips

aggressive drivers, and where are they going that they are in such a hurry? Could it be this new breed of resident, be it summer or fulltime, is so self-absorbed, so full of themselves, that they don’t even consider how their behavior affects others? The answer, sadly, is obviously, yes. There are too many litterers, too many wild drivers, and yes, too many people drinking too much alcohol. Something ugly is happening to this once bucolic haven – it’s high time that we start standing up for ourselves. It starts with law enforcement – we’d wager very few tickets are given out for littering, and given the amount of garbage on the sides of our roads, that is surprising. It starts at the top – our town boards must tell our police departments to get tough. Last week’s coordinated DWI checkpoints yielded over 20 individuals arrested for drinking and driving – results that indicate we need these types of checks on a regular basis, not a few times a year. Our beaches also need to be patrolled – maybe lifeguards could phone seasonal cops stationed nearby when bathers callously leave trash behind on the beach. And maybe we should all politely (or not so politely) let offenders know we expect better from them.

to Europe, hospitals or girls day out. We have buses of people coming here almost every weekend, and sometimes even during the week. The parties along Meadow Lane have parking attendants that block traffic, we have lawn maintenance people block traffic. We have rollerbladers and bike riders that block traffic. This is just what the “Hamptons” has become. Locals reap the benefits for their shops for the summer and spend the winter months cleaning up the mess. So I am not so sure if the purpose of this article was just to express their dislike of persons exerting their right to a peaceful protest or if they were cranky about the delay on our very exclusive Meadow Lane.

In any event, I do agree that fundraisers for political pockets should not be permitted. It has almost become “he with the most toys wins.” I don’t think the Secret Service was forced to do anything, they most likely got paid for a job they needed to do for everyone’s safety. I live in the village, I travel Meadow Lane most weekends for my work, and I have learned to allow extra time traveling because of the delays on every road. I get cranky on occasion, but then again, most of those ‘Meadow Laners’ are my clients, their bike riders are their guests . . . they pay my wages. “Occupy Somewhere Else?” “Better played out in a filthy park in Manhattan?”

Totally un-American way of thinking! Rejoice in our freedom of speech and the fairness of our Constitution! Let It Be! KATHRYN M. ABUGEL, LMT, CMA Editor’s Note: Everyone on the Indy editorial staff lives here fulltime. There is a big difference between holding a fundraiser or having a party here that is attended by and large by people who live here, and shipping in busloads of out-of-towners to stage a protest in our village. We would have had no problem with local people protesting.

No Noise Abatement Dear Rick, It is no surprise to those of us who have maintained that an airport control tower would not abate aircraft noise, that the now functioning control tower does not abate aircraft noise. Town board member Dom Stanzione, the airport manager, and the control tower manager now say the purpose of the control tower is to promote safety and efficiency NOT noise abatement. Also, it seems the control tower will have no influence over the routes the pilots choose or the altitudes they fly. So where does that leave us? Obviously the first thing to be done is for East Hampton to not take any FAA funding and retake control of the airport. The current obligation to the FAA expires in 2014 and provides a rare opportunity for East Hampton to do just that. The over commercialization of the airport as everyone knows only benefits a few while disrupting the well-being of thousands of the greater population well beyond the East Hampton area. I’m compelled to think there is a bit of arrogance on the part of the aviation community. Because they have a passion to fly doesn’t make them sacrosanct. I have a passion to play music but I’m not allowed to rehearse my band or even play publically in any way that disturbs others. There really is no difference.

He rose from modest beginnings and after completing one year of college at night went to work in the advertising business in an entry-level position and built one of the powerhouses in modern advertising –– no small achievement. Now, a wealthy retired man, he turns his back on those less fortunate than he. Obama and Bishop fought for middle class people to reform the health care system to guarantee that all Americans will have healthcare. Presidents Truman, Nixon and Clinton and Gov. Romney, whose own health care bill was the model for the current law, all recognized the need for healthcare reform. In the richest nation in the world is this too much to ask?

How would you lower unemployment and help boost the economy? Renee Fletcher I would give small business loans to younger people, at low interest rates, so they could start up businesses and they could have better opportunities. After all, the younger people are the ones who are going to make our economy work in the future. Ray Brown We’ve got to get big business, unions, Democrats and Republicans to work together to solve the unemployment problems and to fix healthcare to help the American people, the common people. No more of this incredible divisiveness. Jason Voss I can answer that with one acronym: FDR. Public Works to get everyone back to work, using federal money. If you look back at the Depression it was FDR who pulled us out of that mess with public projects. And I’d focus on transportation projects. Patsy Boyland I’d reduce a lot of the regulations that are put on businesses but not for just one year as is being done now. Business needs to be confident knowing where there future is. And all these one year tax extensions are nice but it’s not enough. They need a longer timeline. at huge expense to the taxpayers - all of us. If her family had medical insurance the insurance company would have paid for whatever care she needed. Jerry complaining about all of the people that will support Obama and Bishop and hurling one-liners may work in commercial advertising but has no place in serious discussion of issues that affect people’s lives. Here are the facts: 4,700: The number of young adults who are able to stay on their parents’ insurance, making sure that while they’re getting started in their careers, they don’t have to worry about losing everything from getting sick. 9,400: The number of seniors who received a prescription drug discount, with an average discount of $710 per senior. 81,000: The number of seniors who received preventative services without having to pay co-pays, coinsurance or deductibles. 710: The number of small businesses that received tax credits to maintain and expand their healthcare coverage offerings to employees. 9,000: The number of children with preexisting conditions who can no longer be denied coverage. $86.5 million: The rebate 1 million people in New York State will receive from insurance

companies that spent more than twenty percent of their costs on executive pay and marketing, instead of medical care. It works out to an average of $138 per family. Congressman Bishop voted for the health care bill and continues to support it. Altshuler is against the health care bill and has vowed to defeat it if elected. Who really cares more about the people in our district? DAVID J.WEINSTEIN Editor’s Note: Jerry is not retired.

Anti-Bullying Initiative Dear Editor, As someone who had a short-lived—but deeply regretted—stint as a childhood bully, I support the anti-bullying initiatives recently passed in New York. To this day, I am haunted by memories of making a neighborhood boy sit in a tree and eat leaves until he cried. I am so grateful that caring people intervened and helped me change my behavior. I urge anyone who witnesses bullying — including acts of cruelty to animals, to do the same. Cruelty to animals is a red flag: FBI experts know that it is a common trait among serial rapists and murderers, as well as students who have opened fire on their classmates. BECKY FENSON

Police Scandal CONTINUED FROM PAGE 12.

hundreds of police department documents dating back two decades and the town is bracing for the worst â&#x20AC;&#x201C; last week the town hired Bracewell and Giuliani, the same firm hired by disgraced former East Hampton Town Supervisor Bill McGintee after his budget officer, Ted Hults was arrested in 2009. Christopher McPartland, who is handling the case for the DAs office, also handled the McGinteeHults case; McGintee ended up resigning but avoided arrest, and Hults ended up pleading guilty to two misdemeanors including securities fraud but avoided jail time. The Town of East Hampton wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as fortunate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; taxpayers had to make up a nearly $30 million shortfall, the accumulated deficit McGintee rang up during his almost three terms in office. Neil Checkman, Chillemiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s criminal attorney, said he has contacted McPartland. Checkman acknowledged his clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current plight, â&#x20AC;&#x153;has nothing to do with Southampton Town but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alter the fact that Sickles rousted him on a bogus drug charge,â&#x20AC;? If Chillemi is convicted in district court, â&#x20AC;&#x153;His prison time [because of the local arrest] will have a direct effect on sentencing guidelines. If his [Southampton] bust were vacated heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be subject to doing less time.â&#x20AC;? Chillemi was originally busted in August of 2007 along with five others after police raided a house he was living in along with Tara Tully.

He said in court papers that Tully was let go after Kiernan intervened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kiernan took the handcuffs off Tara and put her in his car,â&#x20AC;? Telesca alleged. The other five men were all charged with assorted drug charges, but only Chillemi did time. The court papers state that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tara Tully is . . . the goddaughter of Lieutenant

He said he is pressing the town to move up a scheduled hearing date. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will absolutely prevail. [Kiernan] has a great reputation and a 15-year

Councilwoman Christine Scalera, in an earlier interview, said the negative publicity surrounding the police force affects morale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The great majority are excellent police officers who do wonderful work for the community. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame they have to be dragged through this.â&#x20AC;?

According to officials at the New York State Public Service Commission, “Demand on the East End has increased over the six-year period between 2000 and 2006 by an annual average of 5.2 percent. LIPA [the Long Island Power Authority] forecasts demand to increase on the South Fork at an annual average rate of about 3.3 percent through 2025.

Village True Value Hardware • 32 Newtown La. East Hampton • 631 324 2456 twitter.com/villagehardwr • Sunday 8:30-4:00 • Monday-Saturday 7:30-6:00

With those stats in mind, last Thursday the commission gave the go-ahead for LIPA’s plan to increase the design capacity of the existing 10.6 mile Wildwood to Riverhead electric transmission line from 69 kV to 138 kV. “This transmission line expansion is needed to increase LIPA’s electric transmission capacity to the South and North Forks of Long Island, to increase reliability and to meet the forecasted increase in demand in those areas,” said Commission Chairman Garry Brown. “Because the facility will use the existing right of way, no permanent impact will occur on any of the existing land uses along the route. Any adverse impacts are expected to be temporary in nature, related to construction of the project.” The transmission line is located in a right-of-way that runs between LIPA’s Wildwood and Riverhead Substations. The line is approximately 10.6 miles and utilizes approximately 170 structural poles. The width of the right-of-way is approximately 100 feet. LIPA proposed to upgrade the transmission line from 69 kV by installing insulators capable of supporting 138 kV transmission using existing conductors and poles. A short piece (approximately 300 feet) of underground 138 kV cable will be installed near the Wildwood Substation to transition the overhead line into the Wildwood Substation. No additional property rights will need to be acquired for the project. Based on forecasted load growth, the project will be needed prior to the summer of 2013. The project is a significant component of LIPA’s plans to reinforce the existing transmission capacity of the South and North Forks of Long Island. It’s part of the first link in LIPA’s chain of supply to the East End. That means the upgrade is critical to meeting the entire electric system requirements of the East End. The selected route, access points and configuration will avoid or minimize the disturbance of natural habitat, land uses, and the human environment because the proposed project uses the existing transmission lines, poles, and rightsof-way. It’s designed to avoid or minimize the disturbance of natural habitat and agricultural land, and avoids disturbance of residential and commercial properties, activities, traffic and emergency operations in a populated area, according to a release from the commission. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Brian Halweil: Eat Locally, Save The World

By Sergei Klebnikov

“ We can change the world through what we put in our mouths,” says Brian Halweil, who has been at the forefront of the growing local foods movement around the world. Halweil has been involved with a variety of different activities in this field, ranging from working with environmental think tank, Worldwatch Institute, being involved with several Edible magazines around New York, and even starting a local farmer’s market in Sag Harbor. In college, Halweil realized that focusing on the food system could help many people and affect a lot of lives. Thus, he has been a distinct leader of the global “eat local” movement, and works tirelessly to help others realize how food can save the world. Halweil now works

on various Edible publications from his home in Sag Harbor where he currently lives with his wife. How did you get into this field, and how did you get involved with so many different things? These might seem like disparate endeavors, but the common thread that unites them all is an interest in how we can change the world through food. In college, I heard a lecture from the ecologist Paul Ehrlich in which he said agriculture was the single biggest way in which humans touched the planet. That fired my interest in farming, and when I started working at Worldwatch as a researcher, I wrote not just about climate change, population growth, and other global trends, but also about the nascent local food movement. It was a much more positive and

inspiring story than much of the environmental pessimism and it’s how I first learned about Edible Ojai, the first Edible magazine. The founders of Edible asked if I’d be interested in starting an Edible in New York. We launched Edible East End in 2005 with an immediate response, then Edible Brooklyn a couple years later with a great response and finally Edible Manhattan. And that’s when I was able to quit my day job. As for the farmers market, in my book on the local food movement in America (Eat Here), I developed a great fondness for farmers markets and how they were a great asset (and pleasure) that every town in America should have. When my wife and I moved to Sag Harbor in 2003, we immediately set to work to get one going and it launched in 2004. There are now at least eight farmers markets on the East End, all inspired by the Sag Harbor market.

its importance? I think most people on the East End -- locals, weekenders or tourists, appreciate the bounty we have. How could you not? The freshness and taste are superior and we have a complete gastronomic experience -- seafood, produce, poultry, wines, beers -- that is rare as far as the American food landscape goes. But seeking it out as your first choice, year-round, not just during the height of tomato and corn season, is another thing, whether you’re planning for a home meal or eating out. And most of us could do better on that front. Supermarkets could do a lot more to feature local produce and make it easier for customers to find it and buy it. Likewise for restaurants, which do a great job with specials that feature local seafood and produce, but don’t always feature these items throughout the menu. How can people who do not have the means pay for these great organic and

local foods? Organic and local choices are becoming more and more available, and they are well within the food budgets of most Americans, especially if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to spend more of our household budget on food and less on less essential items. But the reality is we still need to be smart shoppers and cooks. Tomatoes are never as affordable as they are during the height of the local tomato season, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when you should buy them. If you want to buy pasture-raised pork, but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the tenderloin, buy ground pork from the same animal. What kind of effect would importing food rather than focusing on and supporting local foods have on our landscape?

Coast Guard Auxiliary News By Vincent Pica

Chief of Staff, First District Southern Region, USCG Aux, US Coast Guard Licensed Master

More On Capsizing: How To Survive Last week, you read about what it would take to capsize a boat and, for most people, it is surprisingly little if the stars are lined up against you (see The Independent at indyeastend. com). But what if it does happen? Can you survive? If the boat swamps, which makes a sinking even more likely, can you survive? This column answers those questions.

Thank God For The Cooler! No one goes to sea thinking, “Well, if we capsize today, I’ll just do the following.” Every capsizing or swamping that leaves survivors starts with the same story: “The wave came out of nowhere – and hit us broadside.” Thirty years ago, I was the tactician/navigator in a sailboat racing crew when a large wave, possibly a rogue wave, came back against a North Atlantic storm and hit us broadside. Thankfully, we didn’t capsize nor did we swamp to the point that we foundered – but we did get battered. My scars still are visible. Of more recent vintage, you can speak to David Mull, senior editor

for Lakeland Boating Magazine, who would tell you about a different outcome. Mull spent three and a half hours adrift on Lake Michigan, clinging to a Coleman cooler after the boat he was on swamped and then sank. Mull and his friends lived to tell the tale – but the story starts the same way. Calm day, catching fish. Kaboom. Typically, this is how it happens. Capsizes often occur during daylight hours when weather and visibility are good, the winds were light, and the water was calm. In spite of this, someone reaches over the gunwale for the fish, gets toppled in from a wave hitting at just the right wrong moment, the propeller gets fouled (landing net, fishing line, etc) and the danger curve skyrockets upward. More than half of all boating fatalities are caused by man-overboard and capsizes.

An Ounce Of Prevention Consider this list: Avoid sitting on the gunwale, bow, seat backs, motor cover or any other area not designed for seating. When we patrol under USCG orders, we are required to wear our

life-jackets 100 percent of the time, dock-to-dock. Why don’t you, and your crew, follow this “mil-spec?” If you go over the side, with the ignition-switch-lanyard attached, the boat and your only hope for survival, stops. Without it, you may watch it motor away. Don’t overload your boat. Balance the load of all passengers and gear. Small boats are more susceptible to swamping than larger boats. Be sure you have your bilge pumps working. Remember, small boat, big bilge pump; large boat, LOTS of bilge pumps. Slow your boat appropriately when turning.

Don’t risk boating in rough water conditions or in bad weather. When anchoring, secure the anchor line to the bow, never to the stern. All of this could happen -- to you. Wear your life jacket; it’s hard to get out of a locker of a boat that has capsized or sunk. BTW, if you are interested in being part of USCG Forces, email me at JoinUSCGAux@aol.com or go direct to the D1SR Human Resources department, who are in charge of new members matters, at DSO-HR and we will help you “get in this thing.”

In this fashion, he would lose only the queen of diamonds. When he actually dropped the queen of diamonds with his king, he proceeded to play the jack of diamonds, drawing the last trump. Now he could trump only one small heart but, after losing his fourth heart, the last heart was established as a winner. Thus, he lost only one heart trick and still made his contract.

Fishing Report

Fluke Are In Deep Water Shinnecock Bay/Inlet/Ocean The ocean fluke bite is finally turning on. Fish to 10 pounds have made it to the fillet table. Smaller fish to five pounds have been more common. The fish are deep, 80-feet and falling for whole squid. The amount of squid in the ocean is incredible. Tie up some rigs with stinger hooks and get in on the action. The reef is holding some nice seabass but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to get on a piece to do well. Triggers are hanging around the reef and wrecks too. The bay action with fluke is still good but best at the top of the tide on spearing squid combos. Bassing has slowed considerably with water temps at 75 and warmer degrees in the bay.

The inlet is still holding bass, blues, triggers and fluke. Porgies are the best bet around Robinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Island.

Surf/Shore Bound/Canal The canals got porgies to the north and the small snappers are beginning to show in most creeks and under the docks. The inlets got some bass, blues, triggers and fluke for those looking for a meal. The bridge is holding some fluke too. The beaches have had some schoolies bass in the early morning hours and a few fluke falling for bucktails. News The 2nd Annual Benny Lupia M e m o r i a l F luke Tournament
