Painting The Rain

In Westhampton Beach, teen participants and community members were invited to decorate the barrels. The barrels were donated by Eastern Environmental Solutions and the paint used to decorate the barrels was donated by True Value Hardware in Westhampton. There were additional monetary donations made by the community which helped to provide the remaining materials required to complete the project.

How would you build a better world? Teens at Westhampton Library did their part last week, participating in the library’s rain barrel project, painting receptacles for storing water.

Jocelyn Kaleita, the program’s coordinator, said that the program was designed to raise awareness and present simple ways that can help the environment. “Rain,” she explained, “is a renewable source of water” which is attainable without affecting our water aquifers.

On Monday, the library hosted a “Rain Barrel Reception and Raffle.” The founder and educational director of the Ecological Culture Initiative, Dr. Marc Fasanella, was a special guest. He discussed how to install a rain barrel, its specific use in rain conservation, and its use in the watering of gardens and native plants.

The goal of the project is to place these rain barrels throughout the community where they can be easily seen. “In this way,” Kaleita further explained, “we can raise the awareness of the community as to the fragility of our local ecosystems and introduce simple ecological conservation methods that can be used and further adopted to maintain the world we live in.” Rain barrels are modified rain catchers that are designed to be attached to a building’s gutter drain pipe. The barrel collects the rainwater that flows down the drain pipe and stores the water. The collected rainwater can then be used for watering plants, filling bird baths, and washing outdoor furniture.

Capturing rainwater in containers such as rain barrels helps to control rainwater runoff, a contributing factor to pollution of our local waterways. Rain barrels are used all over the world, especially in developing areas that have consistent rainfall. They are typically used in farming and

gardening.

In the United States, these collectors are becoming more commonplace. They can be purchased in stores and through on-line retailers. Cities such as New York sponsor a rain barrel giveaway program through their Green Infrastructure Plan. The goal is to capture the rain to reduce the amount of water which enters the sewer systems of the city. This

is expected to significantly reduce sewer overflows. In addition, the use of rain barrels will aid in the conservation of water. With over 9 million residents and aging aqueducts in need of repair, the city sees the rain barrels as a means of a partial solution. The rain barrel project is part of the cities’ $1.5 billion enterprise to provide safe, clean, and reliable drinking water to the residents.

ECI, founded by Dr. Fasanella in January of 2016, is a notfor-profit organization based in Hampton Bays with offices located in the historic Foster House. The organization promotes environmental programs and field projects. It strives to foster these programs and projects within local communities and governments. ECI’s mission is to promote the evolution of ecology-based communities on Long Island. It strives to achieve this goal through the advocacy of its ecology-based programs which will educate and provide practical assistance for environmental-friendly solutions to challenges many communities face. The ECI’s community projects are permaculture based. Permaculture

Expanding East End Healthcare Access

new critical care tower, featuring the Kanas Regional Heart Center, is a fitting way to bring increased awareness to the opening of our new cath labs,” said Andrew J. Mitchell, president and CEO of Peconic Bay Medical Center. “It is a very visible fulfillment of our promise to bring a higher standard of medical services to the East End.”

By Kitty Merrill

Area hospitals are amping up, with their eyes on the future, and major expansions on the horizon.

In Southampton, effective August 1, Stony Brook University Hospital will operate Southampton Hospital. According to letter to community members from director Tracy D’Errico, “This is part of an ongoing effort to expand access to healthcare services on the South Fork by bringing together Suffolk County’s tertiary academic medical center and the South Fork’s only hospital.”

Hospital and university officials have been preparing for the transition for some time and expect it to run smoothly.

Southampton Hospital will become a campus of Stony Brook University Hospital with seamless continued operation expected. “All of our off-site healthcare facilities where you received medical care in the past will remain open and continue to provide the same services to the community,” the letter states. No changes in services offered or locations where services are provided are expected for now.

The merger has been under discussion for almost a decade. The goal is to meld Stony Brook’s clinical oversight and research capabilities with Southampton’s community setting. The merger clears the path for the next phase of the vision: an expansion that entails moving the hospital to the Stony Brook Southampton campus in Shinnecock Hills. On the North Fork, last week saw the groundbreaking of the Northwell Health’s Peconic

Bay Medical Center’s two-year construction project of a critical care tower. The centerpiece of the new $60 million critical care tower is a comprehensive cardiac care center, named the Kanas Regional Heart Center. The Heart Center will feature cath labs, the first facilities of their kind on the East End, and have the potential to save hundreds of lives each year.

The new three-story tower will be built over the existing emergency department, doubling its size. The tower will include a rooftop helipad, two ultra-modern operating cardiac cath suites, an electrophysiology suite, recovery rooms, and an 18-bed intensive care/cardiac care unit.

An expert team of interventional cardiologists will be working with experienced registered nurses and staff in the cath labs. In anticipation of the expansion, as of February 2017, Peconic Bay Medical Center began operating as a level III trauma center after earning provisional status from the NYS Department of Health. It is the only trauma and

Primary Petitions Filed

By Kitty Merrill

Candidates for town offices in both Southampton and East Hampton towns have submitted petitions to challenge Democratic Party nominees. In East Hampton, Zachary Cohen, who ran unsuccessfully for supervisor in 2011, losing by just a handful of votes, is running a primary against Democratic town board candidates Jeff Bragman and Kathee Burke-Gonzalez. In a news release this week, Cohen said he and his team collected 835 signatures, almost 500 more than are necessary. “Collecting signatures over the past month required building a new organization of committed

volunteers, but our supporters have been amazing,” Cohen said.

According to the candidate, signers of the petition include several former Democratic Party town councilmembers, the current clerk of the Town Trustees, established leaders of the African-American community, and young leaders from the Latino community. The petition was overwhelmingly supported by leaders and professionals who work in affordable housing, Cohen reported, adding, “noted environmentalists in Springs and Montauk were also prevalent signers.” “In retrospect,” Cohen said, “the fun outweighed the drudgery.

CfAR Fights “Serious Threats”

Known to the locals as “truck beach” during the summer months, the Napeague stretch between Amagansett and Montauk is booming with four-wheelers and families soaking up the sun’s rays and enjoying the the ocean. However, some private homeowners say that they should be the ones controlling who visits these beaches. Beach access has become a huge issue on the East End.

access throughout the East End. Our group was formed to raise awareness of these attempts to privatize the beaches and fight to maintain the rights and traditions that residents have enjoyed since colonial times,” emphasized Nicole Castillo, CfAR’s PR representative.

Citizens for Access Rights, or CfAR, was formed in response to two lawsuits in which private homeowners claimed to own the beach at Napeague. CfAR recently released a new video to illustrate the importance of maintaining public beach access. It features Brad Beyer, a 12th-generation local and proud CfAR member. “We’re now experiencing the most serious threat to public beach access and ownership ever,” said Beyer. “Parking for beach access is limited, and in the summer months, almost impossible to find, making some of the East Hampton shoreline inaccessible to all except those who live within walking distance.” The three-minute video opens with Beyer speaking about access issues followed by a montage of stunning shoreline images. The focus is on a myriad of “no parking” signs as beachgoers drive their trucks along Napeague. Kids boogie boarding, families fishing, and friends enjoying their days off are shown. A drone soars above the shoreline and dozens of trucks and folks playing games are seen on a beautiful summer’s day. Beyer emphasizes the plethora of “no parking” signs along Montauk

Other beach access non-for-profit organizations are mentioned, like Southampton Association for Beach Access, Long Island Beach Access Group, Montauk Surfcasters Association, and The Surfrider Foundation. The public service announcement concludes with local families at their homes showcasing “We support beach driving and East Hampton tradition” signs. The Town of East Hampton and the Town Trustees fought and won lawsuits that claimed private ownership of the beach located on Napeague. Litigants claimed that the public’s historic use was a nuisance to the private homeowners. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the town. Despite this ruling in favor of the public, the fight to preserve public access and ownership is far from over.

The ruling has since been appealed, continuing the homeowners quest for privatization of this stretch of beach. Citizens for Access Rights prepared the video to demonstrate the importance of maintaining

In conclusion, Beyer stressed, “We need to work together to preserve the spirit and traditions of our community and to assure that future generations of public beach goers have the opportunity to enjoy a pleasant day at the beach.” CfAR is a non-for-profit organization and is not associated with any political party. The video is available on the CfAR website, www. citizensforaccessrights.com.

In Depth News Town Of Riverhead

Luminati Deal Falls Apart

Talks immediately began with the Town of Riverhead to buy the rest of the available space at EPCAL. Preston set up shop in the cavernous Building Six on the Grumman site and regaled visitors and the press with fantastical visions of the future.

By Rick Murphy

Note: As of press time the Town of Riverhead had yet to cancel the Luminati contract with a source suggesting the board might give the company more time to comply to its contract. The following report was filed on Friday.

World Records

Planes capable of supplying Wi-Fi all over the world – without ever having to land – were grounded indefinitely Monday, literally before they’ve even been built.

Preston’s resume reads like a highlight reel: “An experienced parachutist, paraglider, and pilot with over 3000 test jumps/flights, Preston has set several world records in aerodynamics relating to parafoils. The Smithsonian Institute selected Preston’s composite parafoil and two wingsuits for display opposite the Wright Brothers’ flyer as part of the Smithsonian’s National Design Museum exhibition ‘Extreme Textiles: Designing for High Performance.’”

According to Riverhead Town officials, a deal to sell a large tract of land in Calverton to a firm that was going to blanket the skies with its cutting-edge aircraft fell apart Monday.

Luminati Aerospace assembled a “dream team” of scientists and engineers, contracted to buy the former Grumman Aerospace site in Calverton last year, and announced plans to become “a major force in the aerospace industry.” Instead, its founder Daniel Preston has been discredited as a flim-flam artist, a master of deceit, and a shameless self-promoter who used smoke and mirrors to damn near pull off the deal of the century – the purchase of the largest undeveloped tract of commercial property on Long Island.

The deal was supposed to close Monday -- Luminati would buy 1400 acres and agree to preserve 900 more. Riverhead would get $40

million and the promise of up to 2000 new jobs at the site.

Instead, Riverhead is back where it was decades ago - trying to figure out what to do with its most valuable asset. There have been other doozies along the way.

The latest saga began in 2015 when

Luminati purchased a lot on the Grumman runway from Skydive Long Island amidst much fanfare. Its flamboyant president, Preston, announced plans to fill the airways with solar-powered aircraft on autopilot that would deliver the Internet all over the world and never have to land.

The company built a prototype half-scale Unmanned Aerospace Vehicle. Long Island Technology News reported Luminati “has been designing and building the machinery it will use to manufacture ultra-light aircraft out of the composites Preston has developed and patented.”

Later, an Italian company accused Luminati of stealing the design for the prototype from them.

Riverhead Town moved forward with the deal, with Supervisor Sean Walter, who has not responded to Continued On Page 76.

be in while one is contemplating his life.

Jerry’s Ink

I stared into the fire and this is what I thought: I’m lucky. I’m so, so lucky.

by Jerry Della Femina

ON MY BIRTHDAY I ONCE AGAIN REVEAL THE SECRET OF LIFE This is practically the same birthday column I wrote last year. Nothing has changed except I’m a year older and a lot crankier.

I want to thank Donald Trump and Bill de Blasio for keeping me alive. I do not intend to die while these two losers are in office. I’m cranky because I’m watching the world deteriorating right before my eyes. Every street in midtown Manhattan has a beggar sprawled out on the sidewalk. Many of them are junkies in their 20s and 30s. Their signs are a hustle. “Help Me … Help Me … Help Me.” My favorite is the young woman whose sign reads, “Pregnant. Hungry. Please help.” I’ve passed her and read that sign for over a year. She’s going into her 12th

month. She still doesn’t show.

I walk past them all and realize how lucky I am. They will always be alone. They will never enjoy the secret of life. I think about it every day.

The secret of life can be revealed in one word: Family. I’ve had two wonderful wives, I have five great kids – Donna, Michael, Jodi, Jessie and J.T. – and seven wonderful grandchildren: Zoey, Zach, Jack, William, Anabel, Charlie and Maggie. That’s the secret of life. It all came to me at another birthday celebration for me that took place 13 years ago at a family beach bonfire. I was sitting crosslegged on the beach in the most uncomfortable position one could

I’m lucky because I grew up in Brooklyn and I live in New York City and in The Hamptons and it doesn’t get better anywhere else in the world.

I’ve lived and live in the best of times. The three greatest inventions in the history of mankind have come in my lifetime. Forget about penicillin and splitting the atom. Penicillin is about sickness and the atom is about death.

The three greatest inventions of my, and your, lifetime are:

the George Foreman Grill, EZPass, and the iPod. Take it from the birthday boy. Eating, listening to great music, and not waiting on tollbooth lines are what a good, superficial life is all about.

As the fire burned I thought about my birthday and how, somehow in my life, I got all the breaks.

I’m lucky because I was in advertising in the 1970s when it was wild and crazy and I was, some would say, the wildest and the craziest. It came naturally. I survived. I came into advertising in the 1960s as a messenger without much of a fancy education. I was delivering packages for $24 a week.

By 1978 I co-owned a $600 million advertising agency. I also learned that money isn’t the endall. I would go out to my fancy L.A. office and my agency-leased Hollywood Hills home and rent a convertible and ride the coast highway alone, obsessively playing the Neil Diamond song “I Am I Said” over and over. The words of this part of the song were not lost on me: “Did you ever read about a frog Who dreamed of bein’ a king And then became one

Well except for the names And a few other changes If you talk about me

The story’s the same one.”

Then, as I stared at the bonfire, I realized how my family and extended family have grown. There, sitting cross-legged with much more ease than me, were our good friends Michael and Nancy Hodin and Andy Saffir and Daniel Benedict. All five of my children and their spouses and their children were enjoying the fire under a blanket of stars and a world-class moon.

I sat and looked at my family and I thought about how small my family was when I was a kid. It was my brother Joe and me, my mom and dad, and my grandparents. My wife, the beautiful Judy Licht, who was an only child, grew up in a smaller family than mine. We never talked about having a big family. It just happened.

Then I realized that when Connie and Michael Della Femina had their first child, they set off a chain that came together here around this beautiful bonfire. In the end, it’s about family. It’s not about religion or money or power or any of the things we all grow up thinking that mattered. It’s about family. I looked at my family and watched as the light of the bonfire flickered and reflected on their faces. My sweet granddaughter Zoey Hart, then just 14 years old, took her musically-talented dad Adam’s guitar from him and started to play and sing. Her sweet voice had its

Sand In My Shoes

When Pete said he didn’t think he’d live to see Hamilton it hit me like the bullet that felled the founding father who also founded the New York Post where Pete became a newspaper columnist. “Alexander Hamilton’s paper gave me a helluva life,” Pete said.  

Hamilton Gave Him A Helluva Life renal problems. Somehow by the time he reached an exam room he had two broken hips. I believe he was dropped. That trauma triggered a heart attack that whipped him into a downward spiral.

I went to a Wednesday matinee at the Richard Rogers Theater in Manhattan with my 82-year-old brother, Pete, and his wife, Fukiko, and my son, Liam, 17. I’m not a musical theater fan. I’d rather see an earnest drama at the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor or listen to oldies on Coopers Beach or toast the glorious sunset in Montauk than trek into the hot city, hurling F-bombs at lunatic cabbies in the gridlocked traffic of Times Square.

Doctors asked Fukiko to sign a Do Not Resuscitate, insisting that Pete would never regain consciousness. Fukiko refused, assuring them that Pete would awaken but that his diabetes just delayed the process. “N-O to the DNR,” she said.

But I’d heard only wonderful things about Hamilton.

The one negative was from Pete who told me around Christmastime that he’d probably never get to see Hamilton. I asked why. Pete said, “Because I’ll be dead before I can get tickets. The show is sold out for like seven years, isn’t it?” He was right. Unless you wanted to pay $5000 to a scalper, the closest you could get to Hamilton was his large white gravestone in the Trinity churchyard on lower Broadway.

Three years ago Pete had a medical scare that brought my family rushing to NYU Medical Center where he lay comatose after walking into the hospital on two good legs with diabetes-related

SuNDAY

Two days later Pete was awake, listening to Sinatra and speaking Spanish to an orderly about the Mets.

Pete climbed off the canvas and back into the fight for life. “I will dance again with my wife,” he promised. It’s been a daily grind of physical therapy, life on a walker, dialysis every other day, and other medical visits supervised by his new doc, Dr. John Romanelli of Brooklyn and Sag Harbor. Pete spent the winter in New Orleans, moved back to his native Brooklyn, and has been writing a new book. The morning after Donald Trump was elected, as most New Yorkers sank into despair, Pete called me to say, “I promise you that I will not die with this SOB in office.” That was the lone silver lining of the

Fast forward to May when I was eating lunch with some writer friends -- Peter Blauner, screenwriter on “Blue Bloods,” Michael Daly of the Daily Beast, and Warren Leight, award-winning playwright and writer/producer on some 120 episodes of “Law and Order.” Blauner and Leight were talking about how Hamilton was so good that it surpassed its own hype. I casually mentioned Pete saying he’d never live to see it. Blauner – author of Proving Ground, the best thriller you’ll read this summer -- gazed at me in disbelief. He set down his fork, asking if he’d heard me right. As a younger man Blauner had worked as Pete’s assistant, learning much about the writing craft. “That cannot stand,” Blauner said. Turns out Blauner knew a guy who knew a gal who knew a guy. Whatever the process, last Wednesday Blauner used up a once-in-a-lifetime favor so that Pete could see Hamilton, an usher relieving my brother of his walker at his aisle seat.

an applauding Fukiko, she who refused to sign her husband’s DNR. Then as the marvelous cast came out for a bow I watched my big brother Pete Hamill shout, “Bravo!” pushing himself from his seat on his old New York Post reporter’s legs to give Hamilton a standing-O without the aid of his walker. Yeah, the show’s that great.

And cheering for Hamilton, is really about cheering for ourselves and the deeply flawed greatness that has been from its inception and always will be the United States of America.

Like I said, I prefer drama or comedy to musicals. So I was not expecting the magnificent two-anda-half hours of soaring American history that is Hamilton, the best theater viewing experience of my life. My teenage son was just as blown away. I looked past him at

As we left the theater, Pete turned and shook a fist to the empty stage like a nod to our Founding Fathers, and then he went back to outliving Donald Trump stinking up George Washington’s chair.     To comment on Sand In My Shoes, email denishamill@gmail.com.

Powassan Fatality Upstate Heightens Fears

By Rick Murphy

that are found all over the world. At this time, the CDC does not know how people become infected, but based on what researchers know about similar viruses, it is likely Bourbon virus is spread through tick or insect bites.”

Last month The Independent reported there is a new tick-borne illness that is more dangerous than any other discovered thus far.

This week, there’s alarming news that an upstate man died from the Powassan virus, the first known case in New York.

Lyme disease has already reached near-epidemic levels hereabouts. In addition, over the past decades, hundreds of cases of a severe meat allergy have been reported, caused by the bites of Lone Star tick nymphs.

Senator Charles Schumer has called on the Centers for Disease Control to find a treatment, and fast – there is no known cure or antidote. Charles Smith of Gansevoort had found the tick under the skin of his elbow on April 28, after a day of fishing.

A bull’s eye rash appeared in the area where he was bitten, sometimes an indication of Lyme disease. After about 10 days he began to feel ill, but doctors ruled out Lyme. Smith continued to go downhill, became paralyzed from the neck down, and died. Doctors didn’t realize the cause until blood results came back a month later. The New York State Department of Health confirmed that Powassan was the cause. Though it was the first reported in New York State, there have been two fatalities reported in Maine so far this year.

This week the CDC issued a press release with more dire news about areas that suffer from tick infestation: another potentially fatal disease. The CDC confirmed a woman in Missouri died from what is known as the Bourbon virus, yet another possible tick-borne illness. According to the CDC, “Bourbon virus belongs to a group of viruses

MONDAY

The CDC and health department both warn that this is a banner season for the tick population, possibly because of the mild winter in the Northeast. Bourbon is closely associated with Powassan and, like that virus, it is incurable.

Schumer is warning residents to use extreme caution when partaking in outdoor activities. According to a Center for Disease Control spokeswoman, POW virus can infect the central nervous system and cause encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) and meningitis (inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord). Approximately 10 percent of POW virus encephalitis cases are fatal.

It is rare, but the numbers are beginning to ratchet up in the Northeast and the Great Lakes region. Kate Fowlie, the CDC spokeswoman, said signs and symptoms of infection could include fever, headache, vomiting, weakness, confusion, seizures, and memory loss. “Long-term neurologic problems

SHOTGUN BLASTS

The bicyclist quickly called for help. East Hampton Town Police and emergency responders found Steve Lane, 25, of Hampton Bays, unconscious in the truck. There was no way of knowing when the car veered off the road. Lane was apparently traveling southbound.

Residents a mile away could hear the shotgun blasts reverberating in a quiet section of East Hampton early Saturday morning.

Town Police said at 3:43 AM a resident at a home at 142 Oakview Highway called in to say the incident occurred at her location.

Someone discharged several blasts from a shotgun that struck the house. “There were holes in the trim and pellets went through the window,” reported Capt. Chris Anderson. There were at least two people asleep in the house at the time, one in a front room. The gun was discharged from the street - casings were found on the road. The house is set back about 40 feet. Anderson said the incident “may be the result of a prior dispute” but police did not release further details. SERIOUSLY INJURED The roads are deserted even at this time of the year in the deep Northwest Woods of East Hampton , but especially at 7:O8 AM. An alert bicyclist peddling hard down Northwest Road spotted something in the woods out of the corner of his eye. It turned out to be a 1989 Chevy pickup, barely visible from the roadway.

East Hampton Ambulance took Lane to Southampton Hospital but Lane had to be airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital from there. He was listed in critical condition as of press time Monday.

Correction

An article in the May 17 issue of this newspaper contained an egregious error.

The Independent erroneously reported that Adrianna C. Nava of East Hampton was arrested on April 29 and charged with driving while intoxicated, third degree escape, and resisting arrest. However, a 21-year-old woman from Hampton Bays was charged with those crimes. Nava was not involved in the above referenced incident in any manner.

The Independent apologizes for the error.

Health Care Crisis

GOP Plan Stalls, ACA Enrollment Down By Rick Murphy

The news for Americans already stung by ever-increasing costs of health care insurance is getting even worse.

This week, yet another Republican attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) stalled in the US Senate as concerns mount that the GOP plan, dubbed the American Health Care Act, may be even less effective.

While costs are spiraling upward, quality of care continues to worsen. A new study ranks the US dead last among the most civilized countries in health care quality.

The Congressional Budget Office forecast that 22 million Americans by 2026 will lose health insurance if the AHCA were to have passed. But Obamacare enrollees are down as well by between 500,000 and 1.9 million customers this year, leading to speculation that the CBO estimate is faulty because it fails to take into account Obamacare defectors. According to Yahoo News, the White House has doubledowned on its attack of the CBO. White House officials disputed projections that 22 million more Americans would be without health insurance by 2026 in part because the agency didn’t foresee a Supreme Court ruling allowing states to opt out of the Medicaid expansion in the bill.

CNN Money reported that as of March some 10.3 million people actually enrolled in the ACA. “That’s down from the 12.2 million who signed up for coverage when open enrollment ended on January 31.”

Ryan said the huge increase in monthly premiums for Obamacare is causing some of the defections. In New York, insurers have asked the state to approve increases ranging from 16 to 47 percent. The state’s most popular health providers seek a 29-percent increase. According to the independent analysts, the average increase for individual plans purchased through Obamacare marketplaces will be 25 percent next year. “The Affordable Care Act is getting a lot less affordable for many Americans,” wrote Brad Tuttle in Money. “Insurance companies have been abandoning these marketplaces left and right because they say it’s difficult to turn a profit, and the insurers that remain are asking for steep price increases all over the country.”

And House Speaker Paul Ryan, who helped formulate the AHCA,

tuESDAY

pointed out that under Obamacare millions of Americans, primarily young, healthy Americans, have been forced to sign up for coverage they don’t even want – they prefer to pay their own medical expenses.

The figures cited also don’t factor in how most individual plans purchased via Obamacare marketplaces are subsidized by the government. Nearly 85 percent

of the plans purchased through Obamacare marketplace receive premium subsidies. Many of those whose income levels are above the subsidy threshold are finding they can no longer afford health insurance, fulfilling a worsecase scenario predicted by ACA opponents -- that many middleclass Americans who have gainful employment won’t have health insurance, while people who for whatever reasons don’t work, or earn very little, will be insured. Many insurance companies that signed on to Obamacare are bailing out. Despite their unhappiness with Obamacare, many HMO executives think the AHCA as originally written would be even worse — for them, anyway. That’s because proposed cuts in Medicaid would negatively affect bottom-line payouts to insurers.

Independent/Courtesy of Wikimedia Senator Rand Paul proposed an amendment to AHCA that would provide a cheaper alternative to Obamacare.

Last week six prominent higherups from the medical industry met with a group of GOP senators urging them to reinstate the proposed Medicaid cuts in any future AHCA legislation. Nevertheless the newest GOP plan that was unveiled Thursday has left the Medicaid cuts intact, though it retains a tax on the wealthy that was originally slated to be removed.

The so-called Consumer Freedom Amendment, championed by Senator Ted Cruz, is also included in the new GOP plan. It allows insurers offering Obamacare plans to also offer cheaper, bare-bones

policies.

It also contains significant new funding to treat opioid addiction and money to at least partially offset the Medicaid cuts.

The Commonwealth Fund released a study last week that indicates the dire situation of health care in this country. The US spends more on health care than any other country included in the study but our health care system ranks dead last in a study of 11 high-income countries. The US is the only nation included in the study that does not offer universal health insurance coverage.

Water Views

by Michael Ogden

REFLECTIONS ON CHILDHOOD JOYS AT THE END OF LONG ISLAND I have wonderful childhood memories of flounder fishing with my uncles in Montauk. I can remember catching my first flounder (it felt like I caught a rubber boot) and standing up in the boat shouting, “I caught a flounder!” As the other fishermen began looking my way, my uncles tried to explain the virtues of silence. The beginning of this exciting adventure began on the “Long Island Parkway” and eventually reached open country where on both sides of the road were miles and miles of potato and duck farms. Occasional homes and villages would appear, but back then the population in Suffolk County was a quarter million. Today it is a million and a half. (See above, right). Combined with the six-fold increase in population, two additional factors: (1) minimal wastewater treatment, and (2) sandy soils, have inevitably resulted in water pollution, associated algal blooms, inedible shellfish, a decline in the flounder fishery and closed beaches. As the result of our public concern with the effects of groundwater pollution we now have excellent information and maps describing the current situation. The Nature Conservancy’s map

below quite graphically depicts the extent and effects of groundwater pollution in the East End.

To understand our current predicament, first we must understand Long Island’s unique geography. Long Island is the result of retreating glaciers 21,000 years ago that left, in essence, a giant sandbar protruding out in the Atlantic Ocean. This sand bar, with two parallel ridges running the length of the island, has provided both an incredible ocean shoreline and a huge pile of sand and gravel that collects rainwater in three separate aquifers. These aquifers are the only source of groundwater on which the entire population of Long Island depends. This pure water allowed the early settlers to hand dig wells for their homes and farms and has been the essential resource that has allowed Suffolk County to grow. Early settlers relied on outhouses and until the invention of the flush toilet this was the only disposal option for human waste. With the arrival of the flush toilet and internal plumbing, rural homes could install septic tanks with leach fields. Originally designed by the USDA

in 1871 for homesteads of 160 acres, the septic tank separated solids from wastewater and allowed the settled organic compounds to be anaerobically digested in the tank. The liquid portion, primarily water and urine, flowed into a leach field - a trench dug in the sandy soil with rocks placed in the bottom to assist with drainage. Although providing better wastewater treatment than outhouses, septic tanks and leach fields provide only limited treatment and removal of nitrogen and other pollutants found in wastewater. The sandy soils of Suffolk County allowed the septic tank effluent with all of its pollutants to rapidly drain into the aquifer. Bacteria in the soil provide some treatment returning about 25 percent of the nitrogen to the atmosphere, but the rest moves with the ground water to the edges of the island. Despite the massive development of Long Island since 1950, the primary form of residential wastewater treatment still relies on 150-year-old technology. Today at least 112,500,000 gallons of wastewater per day (including 42,900 lbs./day =7829 tons/yr. of nitrogen and 23,100 lbs./day of phosphorus) is flushed with limited treatment into the aquifer.

To put this in perspective, we could grow 156,582 acres of corn (an area slightly more than one quarter of Suffolk County) with the nutrients contained in this wastewater. In addition to human waste, nitrogen and phosphorus flows from agricultural fertilizers, residential landscape and garden fertilizers, and industrial wastewater. At the edges of the island, where 16

groundwater mixes with salt water, green plants (in the form of algae and sea grass) take advantage of this essential nutrient. Unfortunately, the most adventitious forms of algae are also toxic. The summertime water demands by the forest, lawns and gardens (evapotranspiration) reduce the effects of rainwater dilution on the groundwater increasing the nitrogen concentrations. As the algae grow and die, the dead algae place an oxygen demand on the water creating regions of low oxygen (hypoxia) where clams, fish, oysters, crabs will suffocate and unless they can escape, die. The coastal regions of the island are the nurseries for the fisheries, and as these areas become impacted by toxic blooms or hypoxia, so goes the fishery. (See Nature Conservancy above) If the groundwater pollution continues, then what happens to the shellfish, fish, and fowl? Summers at the beach? What about taking your children flounder fishing?

The good news is that there are solutions that can reverse a couple of hundred years of abuse of the groundwater. They can be implemented over time, houseby-house, village-by-village as political will and financial resources become available. Future articles will describe some solutions that have been adopted by similar communities. We can fix it. Maybe its time for all to stand up and shout “Time to clean it up!” Michael Ogden, PE (Civil Engineer) is a fifth generation New Yorker, and ex flounder fishermen.

Alleged Prostitution Ring Broken Up

Southampton Police made a move to put a dent in what police say is an ongoing problem in the Latino community – prostitution. On July 11, armed with a search

warrant, a team from the East End Drug Task Force descended on a house at 87 Foster Avenue in Hampton Bays at about 6:50 PM. Their target: individuals suspected of promoting prostitution and

selling illegal drugs.

The bounty was rich, investigators said. Seven people were arrested, three on felony charges, among them Wilmer Neira, 21, who police said lives in the residence.

Police said though Israel Bustillo of Riverhead is only 19, he was arrested on a charge of promoting prostitution as well as seventh degree criminal possession of a controlled substance for cocaine. He was arraigned in Southampton Town Justice Court and remanded to Suffolk County Jail in lieu of $1000 cash bail.

Authorities in other venues are looking for him as well. As a result, bail was set at $30,000, which Diaz Paz could not meet. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement is expected to begin deportation proceedings against him.

Fredy Oswaldo Espana-Tubac, 23, of Flanders also faces deportation hearings. He was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of patronizing a prostitute. ICE allegedly has a warrant against him, police said.

Julian Alberto, 39, of Mattituck was remanded to jail in lieu of $5000 cash bail, police said. He is charged with patronizing a prostitute. Two women, Alondra Rivera, 20, of the Bronx, and Flora Cabra Tavera, 41, of New Jersey, were charged with prostitution. They will appear in court Friday to answer charges.

Musings With Alan Alda

Alan Alda -- actor, director, screenwriter, author, and East End resident. The sixtime Emmy Award winner and his wife, Arlene, have supported numerous causes in The Hamptons, including the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival, where Alda will narrate the season opener, “Brahms and the Schumanns” with two performances on July 30 and 31.

Although perhaps best known for his role as Captain Hawkeye Pierce in “M*A*S*H” and Arnold Vinnick in “The West Wing,” Alda has appeared in numerous films and hosted the PBS series “Scientific American Frontiers” from 1993 until the show ended in 2005. Alda recently published his second book, If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look On My Face? My Adventures in the Art and Science of Relating and Communicating, furthering his advocacy of science communication (the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science is part of Stony Brook University). Late in September 1853, a dashing 20-year-old Johannes Brahms knocked on Robert and Clara Schumann’s door, leading to one of the great stories in music history. Alda will tell this tale of friendship, love, desperation, and madness using the composers’ own letters, while Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival musicians will perform works by all three composers, each a story of its own.

not just about how scientists communicate, and we’ve trained 8000 of them, but this applies to everybody – parents, children, bosses, employees, lovers, salespeople, board meetings, the list goes on and on. I’m getting very good feedback.”

Alda seemed genuinely pleased and surprised that his latest book opened up as a New York Times bestseller the first week it was published. “I was delighted.”

Words” and has been an avid fan since the series began 34 years ago.

“Arlene and I have been going to the concerts since they began the series,” Alda said. “We’re close friends with Marya and Ken [Marya Martin, who founded the festival in 1984, and her husband, Ken Davidson].” The narration, said Alda, “is a wonderful form, and applying it to this fascinating trio of composers is very meaningful.”

As Alda was doing the research for “Brahms and the Schumanns,” he discovered a much deeper story than the one usually told. “It’s not just the titillation of their romantic threesome. That’s actually minor when you realize the very human story of three people helping each other in the most profound ways to get through their lives, to live through the worst possible disasters. It’s a

really beautiful story. You start to feel like you know them, and as a result, you feel it in the music as their story evolves. As certain events were taking place, that’s when these pieces were written. You feel like you’re involved in their lives,” he said. “And Marya always has the finest musicians you can find anywhere.”

Alda’s commitment to science and communication, he said, “comes from a lifetime both on the stage and communicating with other actors, and through that, to the audience. And then after 11 or 12 years of helping scientists to communicate better, I began to realize I knew something about communication.” And from that, the Alda Communication Training Company, or ACT for short, was born. “I hadn’t seen other people talking about it quite the same way, so I felt I had something to contribute,

ACT is starting with a program for women in business, to help dissipate gender bias in the workplace. “It’s a profit-making company, but all the profits go to the Center for Communicating Science. It’s very exciting. We do workshops with women, where we help them gather the tools to navigate around the obstacles that are stuck in the way of women in the workplace. It’s just unbelievable to me that this is still such a problem, after all these years,” he said. But for now, Alda is concentrating on his upcoming performance with the BCMF and the lives of the composers. “The music is brilliant,” he said. “I’m looking forward to telling their story in Bridgehampton.”

The performances of “Brahms and the Schumanns: Love, Genius, Madness” are 6:30 PM, July 30 and 31, at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church. It includes Alan Alda, narrator; Marya Martin, flute; Kristin Lee, violin; Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu, viola; Jakob Koranyi, cello; and Gilles Vonsattel, piano. Tickets are $75, $55, and $10 for students. They can be purchased at the festival’s website, www.bcmf.org.

Indepednent/Courtesy Studio Toni Ross Left: Artist Toni Ross on the grounds of the LongHouse Reserve. Right: Sanctuary Entwined, Ross’s piece of steel and twine, will be on view until mid-October.

By Bridget LeRoy

Toni Ross: Art And Its Environs

Toni Ross was grateful and excited to be invited to create a sitespecific piece of art for Jack Lenor Larsen’s LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton. She just wasn’t sure where it was going to go.

“And then I saw the three trees,” she said. It was an area with an English oak and two beech trees, one of them weeping. The location spoke to her. “I asked if I could place my work there. And Jack said yes.”

PROPANE & FUEL OIL

And that’s how Sanctuary Entwined – made of 240,000 running feet of hemp twine on an armature of steel, formed into three cubic forms large enough to sit inside – came to be. Ross’s installation is on the grounds until mid-October. Although all of Ross’s art is siteresponsive – her Do Not Look Behind This Wall and Democracy at the Southampton Arts Center made waves that reached The New York Times – her work at LongHouse was the first time she needed to create something big enough for people to get inside. And although the cube form is not unfamiliar to Ross -- who works primarily with natural materials like stoneware, hemp, clay, and cotton -- most of her previous art has been either on the wall or on the table. “It was as much an engineering project as a work of art,” she said. “But I only had to think of form, not function.” She admits she didn’t really know what she was doing at first, but “that’s how I got into the restaurant business. Just jumped in with both feet and then went ‘Oh my God! What am I doing?’” she said with a laugh. The restaurant, of course, is Nick & Toni’s. But she hired a team to help, including a rug designer, who was “very intuitive about textiles and strength.” A good thing when dealing with twine and steel. “And it was a bit of an homage to Jack as well, who is such a forerunner in textile design,” she said.

22

The word “sanctuary” had been in the forefront of Ross’s mind, especially as of late, as a place of safety and comfort.

“So when I created the piece at LongHouse, I was thinking about what it means to be safe,” she said. “And when people go into the cubes, where they can see only a part of a tree, or a bit of the sky, they say it has a focusing and meditative effect. The first time I did it, I was amazed,” she said, smiling. “I had always wondered what the inside of my pieces might look like, and here I was inside of one. It was like being in a nest. It’s very calming and it feels very safe in there, which I don’t fully understand,” she said.

Ross is part of the artists’ group, “Hands Off Our Revolution,” a global coalition which affirms the radical activism art can play. “After the election, I couldn’t work at all. My Democracy piece,” a classroom chalkboard with many words, including the title, half-erased, “created a lot of emotion in the people who saw it. Some cried. But it was also healing.” Her work is not political, she points out, but “more intuitive by nature.” Now Ross is looking to do some programming around the pieces at LongHouse. “I would like to give some talks, possibly involve some kind of choreography as well.”

LongHouse Reserve is open in July and August Wednesday through Saturday, 2 to 5 PM.

Netflix hosted a screening and after party for “Gypsy” at Ian Schrager’s newly opened Public Hotel on the LES. I just started watching this new show with Naomi Watts, who is just so great in everything that she does. Co-stars Sophie Cookson, Melanie Liburd, Lucy Boynton, and the immeasurably talented Brenda Vacarro are great

in their roles too. Acclaimed artist and director Sam Taylor Johnson directed the first couple of episodes of “Gypsy,” which feels more like a movie so far. Can’t wait to watch more, but I just don’t have the time to binge watch in the summer. Love all these women on TV lately. Lightening is striking with this entire cast – Boom!

This series

is so damn funny! I have known Jill and her entire family on the social scene for years, so it’s even more idiosyncratic to me than other shows. The Cinema Society and Kargo hosted the screening and after party for Season 3 at the Whitby Hotel (uptown’s sister of The Crosby Street Hotel). Let’s party - indeed!

AITCH AITCH x Malia Mills

AITCH AITCH, created by founder Hailey Harmon, is the first luxury brand to feature a complete collection of handbags made from salmon skin material, a natural byproduct of organic fisheries in Europe. The product is dyed and tanned by eco-friendly tanneries. Master craftswomen in London construct and finish the bags by hand. Harmon began her career working for sustainable jeweler Monique Pean as one of the founding employees.

There will be a trunk show for the collection at Malia Mills in East Hampton on Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday from 11 AM to 5 PM.

The collection is made-to-order and pricing for the one-of-a-kind goods ranges from $1595 to $3300. Four core styles including a backpack, clutch, crossbody, and tote are available for sale in the colors black, grey, and teal. Tell us about how AITCH AITCH started. I launched AITCH AITCH a short while ago, but it’s been an idea I’ve had for a long time. I worked in fashion in New York for a number of years, and after moving to San Francisco to go to business school, I realized I had to start a leather goods company.

I found and apprenticed with a former Hermes craftswoman and learned all of the traditional leathermaking techniques, meanwhile sketching and designing for the collection. The material I use in my pieces, salmon skin, I found while traveling in Iceland. It sounds very foreign, but it’s been used for hundreds of years in Nordic countries. I fell in love with the rich pattern and the way it ages with a beautiful patina, and AITCH AITCH was born.
 Describe the process of using salmon skin material for your handbags. Salmon skin is a relatively new material to the luxury goods market, but it’s been used for hundreds of years in Northern European countries. In my collections, it’s often mistaken for an exotic skin—which is why I fell in love with it. What’s better is that it’s much more durable than a traditional exotic, so it’s perfect for travel and the beach. The material comes from certified organic fishing farms in Europe and is actually a by-product of the fishing industry, making it very sustainable. It’s tanned and dyed using non-toxic, non-chemical techniques, and assembled by master craftswomen in my studio in London.



Tell us about the upcoming Trunk Show at Malia Mills.

I’m so excited to be showing my pieces at the Malia Mills store— I’ve always been a huge fan of their brand, and Malia, her sister Carol, and the entire Malia Mills team have been so supportive of AITCH AITCH. It’s exciting because not only do we both empower women and have high standards for how our pieces are produced, but as female business founders we have a strong story to tell about ambition and confidence. I’ll have my full collection of handbags with me in East Hampton— ranging from card holders and luggage tags to backpacks and crossbodys, in a few different color ways and hardware finishes. And I love talking to customers about the pieces, so I’m so excited to be able to meet everyone who comes by!
 What are some of your favorite places in The Hamptons? I lived in New York for a number of years when I was first working in fashion, and I came out to The Hamptons a few times with friends. It’s such beautiful special place, and we love getting together and cooking with all of the amazing fresh produce, especially from

Round Swamp Farm. I also love going to the beach. I’m also excited to check out EMP and Flagship while I’m there!
 What are you looking forward to most this summer? I love to travel, which is why I love traveling with my AITCH AITCH pieces— they wear so beautifully and have been everywhere with me. I’m thrilled to come out to The Hamptons to make some great memories with friends, but I’m most excited for a trip Vietnam and Australia with my boyfriend— we’re going to a destination wedding in Vietnam and then visiting some friends in Australia and traveling there for a few weeks. I’m bringing at least one of each of my AITCH AITCH pieces, so I’ll be prepared for everything from the formal wedding to exploring and hiking the South Australian Coast.
 What’s next for AITCH AITCH? I’m very excited to be developing a few new colors, which will be available for the Fall in each of the styles I currently offer. I’ll also be preparing for some pop-ups in New York City in the Fall, so if you can’t make it to The Hamptons this weekend, I’ll be back in the city just in time for the holidays! 29

Is Fashion Art? At The Parrish

By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

It has both personal and social connotations, which is very similar to art-making, and we are excited to hear the highly-anticipated presentation.”

Dr. Valerie Steele, a fashion historian, author, and director and chief curator of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in NYC, will explore the question, “Is fashion art?” at the Parrish Art Museum on Friday at 6 PM. The presentation will be followed by a Q & A.

Dr. Steele has organized more than 25 exhibitions since 1997 at FIT, including “Gothic: Dark Glamour, Daphne Guinness,” and “A Queer History of Fashion.” She is also the author or editor of over 25 books, including Paris Fashion, Fetish: Fashion, Sex, & Power, and The Corset: A Cultural History.

Drawing from a wide range of images, Steele will discuss who decides whether fashion is art, exploring everything from haute couture garments and catwalk shows to classical and avant-garde art.

She will discuss how fashion has often been regarded as art, while addressing the opinions of fashion designers, curators, and critics on the fashion as art debate.

“As an admirer of Dr. Valerie Steele’s work, I am thrilled that she is a part of our summer series to

Dr. Valerie Steele

discuss how fashion and art echo each other in today’s world,” said

Corinne Erni, curator of special projects at the Parrish. “Fashion is a creative process that conveys an attitude and makes a statement.

Contributions to an idea that fashion is art include the rise of fashion exhibitions in museums, like a classic Balenciaga evening dress displayed on a pedestal at the Museum at FIT or the “Rai Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between” exhibition currently on view the Met.

Tickets are $12 and free for members. Visit www.parrishart.org for more info.

The 39 Steps: A Delight

By Bridget LeRoy

Patrick Barlow’s farcical adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film The 39 Steps has been enjoying a successful run around the globe since it was first produced in 2005. Now Via Brooklyn – four actors who describe themselves as a DJ, a tutor, a freelance writer, and a chocolatier – bring a delightful version to the Southampton Cultural Center under the nimble direction of Craig J. George. In Barlow’s retelling of this tale of international espionage and a man stuck in the center of it all, four actors portray over 50 roles, frequently changing costumes onstage to quickly switch parts or play several characters

simultaneously. This, of course, provides plenty of laughs, and the actors and technical team were spot on, even in a first preview. The story follows Richard Hannay, a bored Canadian living in London in 1935. On a trip to the theater, Hannay meets a woman who ends up being murdered in his apartment. Just before she dies, she gives him information vital to the safety of the country, which leads him on a quest to Scotland, while being pursued by both the police and diabolical villains intent on destroying him. Rafe Terrizzi plays the protagonist Hannay with just the sort of debonair charm evocative of the original film presence of Robert

Independent / Tom Kochie Strangers on a train? Ian Harkins, Hannah Tova Wolff, and Rafe Terrizzi in a scene from SCC’s production of The 39 Steps.

Donat, or even Michael Redgrave in another Hitchcock classic (Are there any Hitchcock films that are not classics?) The Lady Vanishes. Cori Hundt portrays the various femme fatales and love interests with the perfect amount of 1930s glamour mixed with humor.

Terrizzi and Hundt are the central characters, but it’s the hard work of the two “clowns,” Ian Harkins and Hannah Tova Wolff, in every other of the 40-plus roles, that make this production gallop along at a hilarious clip. Quick changes of accents, costume, and posture lead to onstage hijinks during even the most “serious” of moments. There are also, naturally, frequent tips-of-the-hat to other Hitchcock films – The Birds, Vertigo, Rear Window, and North by Northwest, to name a few. There’s the famous scream that turns into a train whistle from the original film of The 39 Steps, and a glass of milk

from Suspicion perhaps? Audience members and Hitchcock nerds can have fun trying to spot them all.

The simple but utilitarian sets by T. Paul Lowry fit the bill, along with the wonderful projections which fill in the location blanks. Glenna Ryer provides costumes evocative of the era and accent pieces – hats, tartans, and other quick-change fragments – which help identify who is who, and when. Lighting by John Salutz and sound design by Rafe Terrizzi also add to the feel and fun of the evening. For an evening of comedic fluff and international intrigue, theatergoers can’t beat The 39 Steps. It is utterly delightful. The 39 Steps will play at the Southampton Cultural Center through July 30. Tickets can be purchased in person or online at www.scc-arts.org or www. viabrooklyn.org.

Town Guide : Peter Davis

WHO:

Peter Davis, editorial director of Express INSTAGRAM: @PeterDavisNYC BIO:

Peter Davis was born and raised in New York. The former editor-inchief of Avenue, he founded Scene magazine with Observer Media. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, Vogue, Vanity

Fair, The Wall Street Journal, and many other publications. He is currently the editorial director of the clothing brand Express. FAVORITE SPOTS: I grew up going to Southampton. My grandparents went to Shippy’s every Sunday night. The menu is meat and potatoes with everything drowning in butter plus loads of stiff drinks. The food and décor are never updated and everyone is dressed in old-school pink and green prep gear. It’s as low-key as it gets, which is a relief these days in Southampton.

IS

Sip n’ Soda serves delicious dinerstyle grub, but the super creamy homemade ice cream – especially the mint chocolate chip – is freakishly tasty. I stock up on pints. All the kids working there go to Southampton High and are cute, nice, and totally keep their cool when Sarah Jessica Parker strolls in. Two of my favorite NYC stores, Love Adorned and Pilgrim Surf Supply, have large beach outposts in Amagansett Square. There’s also Lazy Point, Mandala Yoga, and Moonjuice snacks at Jack’s Coffee. I live in Williamsburg and Amagansett Square makes me feel all Brooklyn-y. The Stephen Talkhouse is across the street. Last summer Coldplay just showed up and played.

IS NOT. Ask us about Accident Forgiveness. With other insurance companies, having an accident can mean your rates rise as much as 40%. But with Allstate’s Accident Forgiveness, your rates won’t go up at all just because of an accident. Don’t wait! Call us today.

Duryea’s used to be an authentic no-frills lobster shack where you ordered at the counter and ate on plastic trays at plastic tables with mostly locals. Last summer they expanded and became super-

stylish and bougie and I love it. The seafood is phenomenal (and now way more expensive) and tables sit on a dock with a must-Instagram sunset that will give your friends total FOMO.

Every brand worth their Instagram following invents their own summer pop-up “house” stocked with “influencers,” DJs, trainers, bloggers, and bottle after bottle of Whispering Angels rosé. If you crave being photographed, hustle your way into the BFA House in Shinnecock. The Revolve House is basically a nightclub teaming with celebutantes like the Brandt brothers and Baron Hilton. Kim Kardashian showed up at Revolve last summer for some photo ops then hopped a helicopter out. The hippest summer headquarters is the Hestia casa on a steep cliff in Montauk overlooking Navy Bay. Chad Smith of The Red Hot Chili Peppers lives next door. Hestia is the red-hot all-natural cigarette brand. I don’t puff tobacco but my friend Geena says Hestia is yummy and tastes like dandelions.

Guest Worthy Recipe : Chef Melia Marden & Chef de Cuisine Tadd Johnson of The Smile

WHO: Chef Melia Marden & Chef de Cuisine Tadd Johnson of The Smile

INSTAGRAM: @ChefMelia + @ TaddAndrew ABOUT: Raised in New York City, Melia is the youngest daughter of art-world power couple Brice and Helen Marden. Growing up, the Mardens spent half their time in Greece, where Melia enjoyed great seasonal food and a family that loved to entertain. It’s Greece where she developed her love of cooking. After graduating Harvard in 2003, Melia pursued that love for food through private catering and cookbook recipe testing until she met business partners Carlos Quirarte and Matt Kleigman in 2008. Since then, the trio have opened three additional spinoffs of Smile To Go, and Melia published her cookbook - Modern Mediterranean. She, along with chef de cuisine Tadd Johnson, serves an ever-changing seasonal menu rooted in Mediterranean flavor that has been raved about by Frank Bruni and is loved by the neighborhood.

Little Gem Salad with Sumac-Lemon dressing WHY? : “With the debut of our summer menu at The Smile, I knew we had to have a little gem salad on it. It’s the perfect summer salad as it’s simple, fresh, and crisp. It’s easy to throw together and is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. The simplicity of the dish allows for the delicious seasonal summer produce to shine through.” – Tadd Johnson INGREDIENTS:  For the dressing (makes 2 cups) 2 tbsp Sumac

1.5 c Fage Greek yogurt

2 tbsp lemon juice (freshly squeezed) 1 tbsp kosher salt

.5 c extra virgin olive oil 3 tbsp water

For the salad 3 heads of little gem lettuce 1 colorful large carrot 1 English cucumber .5 tbsp sumac

8-10 leaves of mint DIRECTIONS: Yield: 8 servings

The best thing about this salad is its crispness so make sure you try and get the freshest ingredients possible. Take your lettuce and cut off the root. Then you can easily separate the leaves and dunk in water to cleanse them of any dirt. Immediately pat them dry in paper towel and refrigerate. Take your carrot and peel off the outside and discard. Peel the carrot from top to bottom and place into ice water to get the carrots to crisp and ribbon nicely. After an hour they will be ready and you can put them in a paper towel to get dry. For the cucumber cut off the tips and peel from the top to the bottom. Set aside for the salad.

The mint is simple, just tear it and add it to your lettuce.

Mix all your ingredients together with a whisk and chill. The dressing is very simple but it is very important to make your dressing

and chill it in the fridge the day before you plan to use.

When you’re ready to make your salad make sure all your ingredients are dry. In a bowl add your salad dressing. Add your

lettuce, carrot, and cucumber ribbons, and with your fingertips dress the salad so every leaf is evenly coated. Now sprinkle the half a tablespoon of sumac to garnish and you’re set.

a candy thermometer and a large deep saucepot.

Clean the softshell crab by snipping off the front area where the eyes are with a scissor. Flip the side of the shell up and clean out the gills. There is a flap on the underside of the crab indicating male or female. Cut that off and the crab is ready to be breaded and fried. Mix the flour, panko, seasoning and corn starch to make the breading. Whisk the eggs with one cup of water and you have your crab breading. Whisk together the oj, crème fraiche, sour, cream, mayonnaise, honey, lime juice, and sesame oil to make your coleslaw dressing. Toss the shaved cabbage and carrots together with the dressing, the cilantro, salt and pepper.

Mix the dressing ingredients together for the sauce to dress the crab after it has been fried. To fry the crabs, dip them in the egg mix and coat in the breading. Fry at 350 degrees for two minutes on each side. Place the crab on a bed of the mixed slaw. Garnish with some toasted sesame seeds and enjoy.

Shelter Island Goes Black & White delighting in a raw bar provided by Alice’s Fish Market and dinner by Marie Eiffel Market. In addition to dinner and dancing, island photographer Eleanor Labrozzi will provide a complimentary photo of each guest. Don your black and white summer attire! Only 8000 acres, Shelter Island was first settled by four wealthy European sugar merchants from Barbados. Since that time, the Historical Society carries over 50,000 documents and artifacts spanning the 17th to the 21st century. As of today, Shelter Island hosts about 2500 full-time residents, tripling to almost 8000 during the summer months.

While donations are always welcome, time is equally precious. You can volunteer in several ways; collections care, clerical assistant, events, or as a Havens store attendant. This year’s sponsors are D. Jean Dickerson Flo Hosp, Barbara & Charles Olton, and Joan Wicks.

Tickets to the event are $231. Havens Barn is located at 16 South Ferry Road on Shelter Island. Visit www.shelterislandhistorical.org or call 631-749-0025. You can follow more stories from Nicole Teitler on Facebook and Instagram as Nikki On The Daily.

His research focused on the production of ecologically friendly structures including passive solar architecture -- the process of creating structures which utilize solar energy without the use of an electrical converter. A building constructed using passive solar architecture has walls, floors, and windows which are designed to collect, store, and release solar energy in the form of heat. These structures will also insulate and keep the building cool as needed.

New York: Best City For Driving?!

By Laura Field

Driving in New York is a special type of torture. Travel times triple, and making a quick run anywhere becomes a full-blown production. Americans collectively lose about $124 billion annually in wasted time and fuel due to traffic congestion alone. The personal finance website WalletHub decided to take an in-depth look at 2017’s best and worst cities to drive in.

Shockingly, New York City was not

the worst. It might feel that way, and it got close, but it wasn’t the worst. San Francisco snagged that dubious prize.

WalletHub took cost of ownership and maintenance, traffic and infrastructure, safety, and access to vehicles into consideration when creating their dump list of driving. The Big Apple ranked 78 out of 100. NYC rated 84th for cost of ownership and maintenance,

meaning that our cars are too expensive, and maintenance to keep our babies beautiful borders on theft. Norfolk, Virginia, rated number one for this category for cheapest cars and repairs. So if you are looking into buying some new wheels, maybe a road trip is in your future. When it comes to traffic and infrastructure, New York came in 99; Boston took the cake for worst congestion and roads. If

24 Hour Fast Response

you have ever driven into the city, this is not a hard statistic to believe. Construction is a given, yet somehow all of the roads seem to sport crater-sized potholes. Corpus Christi, Texas, was rated the best in the category, so maybe even the paving trucks are bigger in Texas.

Coming in eighth for safety, New York improves its damaged character by being one of the safest cities to drive in, which may be attributed to the fact so many drivers are stuck in so much traffic that they barely move. Gilbert, Arizona, is the safest and St. Louis, Missouri, is the most dangerous.

New York teens ranked number one for driver safety, and the second lowest premium increase after adding a teen driver to an insurance policy. We have the second lowest teen driving fatality, and fifth lowest DUI per teen population. Montana and Mississippi tied for the most teen driving fatalities, and North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming had the most teen DUIs. New York may not be the best or worst city for drivers, but many would opine it’s definitely not the friendliest.

The cath labs at Peconic Bay Medical Center will provide local access to this lifesaving resource for nearly a quarter of a million residents of Long Island’s East End. “Our community has long needed the kind of services we will now be able to provide through this comprehensive critical care tower,” said Sherry Patterson, chair of the Peconic Bay Medical Center and a long-time advocate for the cardiac catheterization facility. “We are grateful for the support of so many generous members of the

community in helping us fund this project. Their dreams and ours are about to become a reality.”

Stanley Katz, MD, chair of cardiology and chief of interventional cardiology at Peconic Bay Medical Center, has been instrumental in the planning and design of the new cath labs. The long-time senior vice president, executive director, and chair of Northwell Health’s cardiology

services helped develop a vast network that resulted in providing world-class cardiology care across the region. Dr. Katz will now be focused on expanding the Northwell Health cardiology services on the East End. “We’re putting the very best in cardiac care in place right here at Peconic Bay Medical Center, as well as quality stroke and trauma services,” said Northwell Health

The CDC advises the public to be especially vigilant after spending time in wooded or grassy areas. Deer ticks are often no bigger than the head of a pin, so you may not discover them unless you search carefully. “It’s helpful to shower as soon as you come indoors. Ticks often remain on your skin for hours before attaching themselves. Showering and using a washcloth might remove unattached ticks,” according to CDC guidelines.

church and community also benefitted from her generous willingness to help. In her last year, she lived at an assisted living community where she helped her friends with reminders and encouragement, and escorted new residents during their first few days. To the very end, she took care of others.

Clara Bennett Windsor passed away peacefully on February 24, 2017, at the age of 90. She was a daughter of the Town of East Hampton. Her heritage through birth and marriage is connected to the early families who settled the town. Ms. Windsor was born on August 15, 1926, to Horace Emmett Bennett and Clarissa Bell Lester Bennett. She was raised in the embrace of an extended family in the Round Swamp area of Three Mile Harbor Road. She graduated from East Hampton High School in 1944.

She met and married Clifford E. Windsor Jr., a veteran of WWII and Montauk resident, in 1947. They lived in Montauk where they raised their family and operated the Montauk Bus Company until their retirement in 1976. After a brief time of travel, the couple settled in Brooksville,

Florida where Clara remained after Cliff ’s death in 1984. At 85, Ms. Windsor moved north to be with her daughters, Donna W. Libert of East Hampton and Sharon W. Alestalo of Jamesville, NY.

Clara was known for her joy in helping others and could make friends anywhere she went. You could leave her a moment and come back to find her in a conversation with a new friend. Neighbors often stopped to chat with her when

she was doing yard work. She was known for her ready smile. She also adored young children, engaging them until they would respond.

Clara was an active person who enjoyed sports and in later years watching her grandchildren play softball, baseball, and soccer. Clara and Cliff loved ballroom and square dancing. Her favorite color was pink. She strongly believed in preserving what she was blessed to have and leaving the places she lived better than when she arrived; for her that often meant cleaner, neater, and prettier. She enjoyed being a homemaker, taking pride and satisfaction in her home and family. As a result, her family knows they were often quite spoiled as she showed her love by doing. If you were ill there was no one better to have by your side. Her

Clara was the last of her siblings who were all of East Hampton; Winifred Phillips, Isabel Nelson, Clarence Bennett, and Edward Bennett. Her sister-in-law, Eunice Harris, survives her. Grandchildren are Claire and John Verlinden of Texas who have two sons, Joshua and Lucas; Carl and Melissa Libert of New Jersey with children Blake and Kaila; and Kristofer Alestalo of New York. Her daughters -- Donna W. Libert with husband Ray Campbell, and Sharon Alestalo with her husband Erkki Alestalo -- and family will celebrate her life at a memorial service by the Very Reverend Denis Brunelle at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on Saturday, July 29, at 2:30 PM. The church is located at 18 James Lane in East Hampton. All who knew her are invited to attend. Burial will follow at about 3:30 PM at Cedar Lawn Cemetery on Cooper Lane.

In lieu of flowers, the family would suggest a donation in Clara’s memory to her spiritual homes of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and Montauk Community Church.

Beany, with her Asian/Italian looks, is so, so beautiful, she takes my breath away.

Now my granddaughter passed her guitar to John Kim, my son-inlaw. John is a born entertainer. He played his guitar and sang in the

frat houses of Brown and Harvard, where he went to school. His singing voice is rich and husky and I hear a lot of Rod Stewart when he sings. John started to play the guitar. He started singing the old Rolling Stones classic, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want:”

“No, you can’t always get what you want

In Southampton, Supervisor Jay Schneiderman faces a primary challenge that gets its nexus from a single issue. The Long Island Environmental Voters Forum, a political action committee, vowed to find a challenger to oppose Schneiderman.

LIEVF is adamantly opposed to the controversial East Quogue development known as “The Hills” and criticized Schneiderman for failing to voice opposition to the project from the get-go. If approved in its current iteration, The Hills would comprise 117 residential units and an 18-hole golf course on nearly 600 acres. LIEVF wanted to see the application rejected. Instead the planning process, which includes the compilation of an environmental impact study, continues. The forum tapped one-time Republican Fred Havemeyer to launch a primary bid for the Democratic line. Havemeyer served five terms as a town trustee. He lives in Bridgehampton. Like Cohen, he reportedly exceeded the number of required signatures for submission to the Board of Elections days before the due date last Thursday.

The incumbent is an Independence Party member who’s been crossendorsed by local Dems. The primary will be held in September.

Independent/Laura Field Hospital tanks at the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation.

Marine Mammal Help

By Laura Field

The Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation held their 17th annual Oceans of Hope gala this past Friday. The Foundation was started nearly 20 years ago when, board president Chuck Bowman

recalled, operations began in an old lumberyard. With no heat, or proper tanks, members and volunteers saw a need to help sea animals and decided to take the task into their own hands.

The Foundation’s mission has always been the same: “preserve and

protect the marine environment through conservation efforts including education, rehabilitation, and research.” The Foundation focus efforts on assisting turtles, seals, and porpoises, but they also find themselves facing bigger tasks. “This fall we were called to the beached whale in Moriches Bay, which was particularly upsetting,” said rescue team member Nicole Valenti. Their hospital and rehabilitation center is located in the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead, which is equipped with numerous hospital tanks suitable for turtles and seals, and outdoor facilities for dolphins. It’s tough work making sure all of the animals have the care they need, and with a staff of less than 10 members, the Foundation relies heavily on their volunteers, and donations. The Haugland Family

Grant For Meeting House

By Laura Field

.no ww

Homefront Exhibition at Southold Historical Society.

The Jamesport Meeting House has been awarded a grant of $32,125 from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation, according to Richard Wines, president of the board of directors. Wines made the announcement on July 2 at a performance of the Meeting House Chorus. “We are thrilled by the generous support of the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation,” he said.

The grant will be used to install an air-conditioning system and to restore an early 20th century kitchen. “Our ‘puritan’ air conditioning -- i.e., open windows -- served us well for 286 years, but contemporary audiences and modern street noise necessitate more,” joked Wines. “And historical kitchens apparently require renovation every century or so.” The Jamesport Meeting House, built in 1731, is one of the most

significant historic structures in the Town of Riverhead. It is not only the oldest building in Riverhead, but is also the oldest church or public building on the East End of Long Island. “The Jamesport House has been the center of its community for over 280 years. These improvements will keep this important structure a vital public place,” said Kathryn M. Curran, executive director of the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation.

Established in 1987, the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation primarily supports the study of New York State history, with an emphasis on Suffolk County. Its mission is inspired by Gardiner’s lifelong passion for New York history. Until his death in 2004, he was the 16th Lord of the Manor of Gardiner’s Island. Since 1639, the Gardiner family and their descendants have owned Gardiner’s Island by way of a royal grant from King Charles I of England.

Island-Wide Sales On The Upswing A tepid winter gave way to a spirited rebound in real estate sales on Long Island in April, according to the Multiple Listings Service.

Inventory fell annually by almost 10 percent in Nassau, to 5104, and by 17 percent in Suffolk, to 7430. Deerfield Road Estate

A Scavolini Italian designer kitchen flows into dining room and living room with double-height ceilings and fireplace. Sunken conservatory and in-house gym with spiral staircase leads to master suite, complete with fireplace and balcony overlooking the pool and gardens. There are six guest suites. Jeanie Edington of Douglas Elliman has the listing.

The median home price in Nassau County was $475,000 in April, up eight percent from a year earlier. In Suffolk County the median price rose nine percent, year over year, to $340,000, though the numbers were stagnant in the first quarter of 2017. More importantly, the number of houses for sale decreased markedly, an indicator that as demand falls, prices rise.

Sag Harbor and Bridgehampton has hit the market. Originally built in 1988, the house at 2828 Deerfield Road was gut renovated in 2014, giving it the high-tech, contemporary look and feel that has taken Hamptons real estate by storm.

Newly installed electronic gates open to landscaped grounds with both pool and tennis. Walls of windows and large circular skylights flood the house with natural light.

RICK’S SPACE

by Rick Murphy

A Dedicated Follower Of Fashion People don’t give me enough credit but I’ll have you know that back in the day I was considered a snappy dresser, back before “Grateful Dead chic” became a fashion statement.

I find it particularly appalling that the Indy now has a weekly feature, “What They Are Wearing,” and I’m never in it. That aside, there is the traditional summer look for men that says “Summer Cool” – and then there are those who insist on wearing the same god-awful things whenever they hit The Hamptons.

Flip-Flops: You probably don’t know any better. You didn’t get the memo. I know, I know, your wife bought them for your vacation in The Hamptons. Look, I understand

why women wear them. But by God, man, get a grip on yourself !

I have gone my entire life without anything stuck between my toes. In fact, I don’t believe that area of my body has ever been touched — by anyone. Hell, I’ve never touched myself there.

If God wanted something between your big toe and your second toe he would have put something there, like a pinky finger or a nostril. You don’t realize what it’s like to see an otherwise perfectly normal man walking down Jobs Lane or Newtown Lane flapping like a duck. It’s embarrassing to all of us. We are, after all, one species. And when the damn things are orange or lime green it becomes a criminal

It should be noted we did not remove boils or cysts from peoples’ necks. We weren’t those kinds of Lancers. Under the jackets we had Lancers sweatshirts, and then Lancers warm-ups, tops and bottoms, and then finally game jerseys and the requisite shorts. We were athletes. We wore athletic clothing.

Nowadays, old guys wear warmup suits. I feel like shouting, “Hey Pops, where you goin’- the prune juice drinking tournament?” The rule is very simple: if you don’t have game, don’t wear warm-ups.

Beach Apparel. A lot of guys in The Hamptons do that, “Yeah, dude, I’m just coming back from the ocean.” Yes the I went surfing look. You know it. Rumpled hair. Heavy tan. Colorful swimsuits. But some visitors add an unfortunate accessory: a terry cloth top. Listen, terry cloth went out in 1937. Unless you’re 94 and you come from Brighton Beach, do not wear it anymore. Evening Attire. We all know what we are going to wear, so let’s not play games. Oh sure, we have the pink shorts, but we’re going with the pleated khakis, aren’t we?

Now comes the fatal mistake. There is really only one kind of shirt – Polo by Ralph Lauren. Every manufacturer knows this, so they have all started putting little icons on the breast that appear from a distance like a tiny little polo player. Men, you think no one will notice the difference, but you are so tragically wrong! If you’re wearing one of the lesser brands, you might as well have the WT Grant or the IM Schmuck distinctive horse’s ass logo. They say “loser.” The Ralph Lauren logo speaks to attractive women. It says “rich, has foreign car, yacht, and huge McMansion.” Boat shoes and a blazer complete the de rigueur Hamptons look. Don’t get cute with the blazer. We’ve all seen the ugly plaid madras thing some of us clowns wear, so stick with the navy blue. Double breasted is OK, admiral.

There. I’ve said it and I hope we never have to have this conversation again. If you are out and about and happen to be reading this, simply take off your flip-flops now, and throw them in the nearest trash receptacle. Even bare feet have a certain charm in this rustic wilderness called The Hamptons, although if you have really hairy feet we need to talk. One other thing men ask me all the time -- “Is it OK to wear sandals?” The answer is obvious: if you are an original apostle of Jesus Christ or if you have a condo in Bethlehem, yes. Otherwise? Just say no. I’m glad we cleared this stuff up. Now get out there and party, but don’t even think of picking up that ascot unless your name is Preston or Brock.

Insight

Keep The Farms Farming

It’s about time. Tomorrow the East Hampton Town Board will hold a public hearing on a measure that, if adopted, would bring to fruition the vision that most people probably had when they voted to use Community Preservation Fund money to purchase farmland and farmland development rights.

We suspect that when voters approve purchases of development rights, they expect to see the bucolic land remain, well, bucolic. However, more often than not over the years, while the prospect of residential development vanished, the vistas that voters hoped to protect vanished too, as hoop houses, greenhouses, barns, and stables sprang up. No more could community members look across old-timey farm fields, enjoying the views taxpayers paid to protect. The initiative on the table tomorrow night involves the $4-million purchase of all legal uses except growing row-crop produce on an almost 30-acre farm in Wainscott. If approved by the town board, the agreement would legally bind the property to food production in perpetuity. This type of agreement is a long time coming in East Hampton. Southampton Town already uses an “enhanced rights” approach to development purchases. It’s about time East Hampton followed that lead and executed agreements most taxpayers would agree with. Merci Beaucoups Dear Editor,

Then it was your paper that has focused on the Deepwater Project fiasco. Congratulations again on identifying Deepwater’s 24.4 cent per kilowatt-hour charge for power in Rhode Island versus the European windfarm costs of under 10 cents as reported on July 10 in the Wall Street Journal. Now that the [East Hampton] Town Board has approved a resolution that will let Deepwater start doing borings in Napeague on the bay side in anticipation of making that area an industrial site, I hope you can do some further research to continue to expose the folly of this project. Renewable energy is possible for this town and that is why I have continued to advocate relooking at a solar farm at the unused acreage at the airport. I hope this idea gains as much traction as what is developing to deal with our town’s water issues. I mean, it is an election year.

Sarah Rockitter I loooved Wonder Woman. First of all it’s very woman empowering so when I left the movie theatre I felt like I could do anything. I hope there will be a sequel. It was my first Marvel movie.

Jacob Kravel I loved it. I’m from Israel, like the star of the movie. She was strong, athletic, and beautiful. The movie broke all box office records in recent times and it has a great female lead, a woman director, and, I think, a woman producer too. I’m impressed. Joan Kulchinsky I didn’t see the movie yet but I will definitely see it. But I always read the comic books when I was young. I loved them. And I thought it was great that there was this wonderfully brave, strong, ambitious woman who wanted to do good in the world. Justin Greenstein I remember sitting in the movie theatre and enjoying it. It was fun and entertaining. They had the bad guys. It was during the war and the Germans were the bad guys. And Gal Gadot was great as a woman who was both very beautiful and powerful.

“I joined the fire department after my brother encouraged me to, and because I thought it would be a great way to give back to my community,” said Westerhoff. “I also hoped it would help teach me critical leadership skills, and be a great learning experience.” Westerhoff will be attending Boston University this fall, and will be studying biochemistry. After earning his degree, he plans to attend medical school with the goal of becoming a pediatrician. Outside of the fire department, Westerhoff is a member of the Boy Scouts of America (Southampton

Troop 58), the Southampton First Presbyterian Youth Group, and the Rotary Interact Club. He is also the president of the Mariner Patriot Club (a club dedicated to honoring veterans), co-vice president of the Class of 2017, and a volunteer for the North Sea Lions club. Westerhoff is one of 20 students chosen for this scholarship.

“This scholarship means a lot to me and my family. I hope it will inspire other students in my area to apply for it,” said Westerhoff. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of an applicant’s volunteer service to his or her community. Additional criteria include consistent demonstration of good character and completion of a written essay. Founded in 1872, the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York represents the interests of the approximately 110,000 volunteer firefighters and emergency medical personnel in New York State.

Farm Fresh Cooking Photos by Richard Lewin

Kids have been cooking up fun during the Farm Fresh cooking series, the latest collaboration between the Wellness Foundation of Sag Harbor and Amber Waves Farm of Amagansett. Sessions include harvesting ingredients right from the field and learning simple techniques for cooking up delicious, healthy meals. Last week, Chef Christina Cassel showed the children how to make spring rolls packed with fresh veggies and ended the class with an all-fruit sorbet that had everyone asking for more.

Mid-July means steamy weather and hot models at Men’s Fashion Week in New York. Standouts included Raf Simons, who is just killing it in NY these days. Plus, my buddy Nick Graham (whom I have 72

known since his Joe Boxer days) presented an out-of-this-world collection (literally -- Atlantis), also Todd Snyder, Patrick Ervell, and BOSS. Cheers and happy 20th anniversary to Parke & Ronen for a cool show after party (at The Gilded Lily). Now, that’s a wrap.

Cool Your Roll(s Royce)

By Laura Field

the Independent

2017

Drives Us Crazy

Summer is here. And the scorching heat, high humidity, and stop-andgo traffic can take a toll on your vehicle. Allstate suggests taking a few preventative measures to keep your car rollin’ down the road instead of stuck on the side of it.

One of the greatest causes of summer breakdowns is overheating. Overheating can be serious and may result in permanent engine damage. Be sure to check the coolant level. If low, add antifreeze as necessary. If you used winter tires, now is the time to change to your summer tires. Have your tires rotated at 5000-mile intervals or as recommended in your owner’s manual. Summer heat also causes the air in your tires to expand. Occasionally check your tire pressure while the tires are cold and adjust accordingly. Be sure to check spare tires as well.

Don’t you think it’s time to ask about Air Conditioning?

Summer’s heat and humidity will worsen the condition of deteriorating belts and hoses. Hose or belt failure can result in a breakdown. Inspect belts and hoses for excessive cracks, frays, leakage, or swelling. Finally, don’t ignore the warning signs from your car. Do not ignore signals and lights, and if you think something may be wrong, get it checked out. For more tips from Allstate, visit www.allstate.com or contact your local Allstate agent.

requests for comment, as the most ardent supporter.

“Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined reintroducing the aviation and defense industry back to EPCAL to this extent,” Walter told Newsday. “The Luminati deal will recreate Long Island’s glorious past with the defense and aviation industries and once again positively transform the regional Long Island economy.” Lofty Goals But chinks in the armor began to appear. Preston’s bio had holes in it. So too did his explanations about how he was going to fund the $40-million purchase.

Much of the brain trust needed by Luminati to fulfill its lofty goals disappeared. According to an article posted on RiverheadLocal dated April 5, 2017, senior scientist Dr. Anthony Calise and chief operating officer — and Luminati co-founder — Stefan Maier resigned from the startup.

the Independent

Other “employees” listed in the staff box had either left or never worked for the company. Then it was discovered Luminati had run into trouble with the town on several fronts, though the info was not widely disseminated to the public. In October, Luminati was advised that their application for a building permit was incomplete and could not be processed. In December, a stop-work order concerning violations at the 338,000-square-foot Plant Six building was issued.

Though the Republican majority of the town board – particularly Walter – still publicly supported Luminati, behind the scenes the mutiny had begun in earnest.

The final straw came when it was revealed Preston’s former company, Atair Aerospace Inc., sued Preston in 2009. Court papers reveal Preston was fired from Atair after producing forged documents in an attempt to get a pay raise. At a press conference on June 27 Riverhead Town supervisor candidate Laura Jens-Smith and

town board candidates Catherine Kent and Michele Lynch, all Democrats, called for an internal investigation and urged the town not to proceed with the sale until more information is gathered.

Several town board members bailed as well. Finally, Walter acknowledged that it appeared Luminati was not going to fulfill its end of the agreement. The town attorney formally notified Preston that his deadline for compliance loomed. Indoor Water Park Deputy Town Supervisor Jill Lewis said that Luminati had until Monday to turn in signed contracts. After that Preston’s exclusivity clause ended, and the town was free to market the property to other perspective buyers and thus begin a new a process that has a distinct deja-vu feel to it. There have been countless deals discussed, and some of the proposed uses were every bit was ambitious – and fantastical – as Luminati’s. At least one developer, the

Florida-based Palm Beach Polo, proposed building a polo center on the undeveloped land. Another developer has submitted a proposal for two golf courses and about 100 residences on 500 acres. In 2008, Riverhead Resorts broached the idea of building a $2-billion resort complex in Calverton that would feature a 35-story indoor ski mountain.

“Developers envision a gleaming play land rising over bucolic Pine Barrens from a Cold War airfield where the Navy once tested fighter jets for Top Gun pilots,” wrote Frank Eltman for the Associated Press.

The resort would also feature an indoor water park, a convention center and hotel, a winery, equestrian trails, campgrounds, an artificial lake, and a spa surrounded by botanical gardens. The Long Island Pine Barrens Society was one of many environmental groups that lined up in opposition. “That kind of ‘mega-development’ could turn rural Calverton into modernday Orlando,” said the LIPBS in a press release.

MuvStrong: Signature Fitness Center

By Justin Meinken

Staying fit comes with commitment and choosing the right methods for your own individual needs – but how to do that without a true knowledge of your physical body? Whether out on the East End or elsewhere, it seems that fitness centers have emerged on every corner. In an unregulated industry, how does one choose? MuvStrong is a signature fitness center that is quietly tucked away in The Springs area of East Hampton. In a studio located at 289 Springs Fireplace Road, its owners, Gordon Trotter and Michael DeLalio, are very aware of their competition in this booming and relatively unregulated profession. However, according to the duo, their unique training methods and individually skilled coaches are what set MuvStrong above many of their competitors. MuvStrong is a fitness center

which focuses on movement as the first level of fitness training so clients can attain their goals safely and efficiently. They offer both small group and one-on-one sessions that provide individual coach attention for each class. Each coach is selected based on his or her personality with an emphasis on the coach’s ability to positively encourage and drive their clients to perform at their best. All coaches then determine each client’s level of physical abilities so that they can individualize the client’s training sessions for optimal success. Trotter said, “Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care.” At a first meeting, newcomers to MuvStrong generally participate in an initial screening so the coaches can precisely analyze the client’s health. The clients can then choose from a personalized one-on-one session based around their own physical goals, or they

can participate in more generalized group sessions of varying intensities that focus on common goals such as weight loss, increasing mobility, and increasing physical endurance capabilities. The gym is two levels with 50 percent of the floor consisting of grass turf and the other 50 percent, a soft black rubber. Each surface allows for large varieties of movement training techniques. Very minimal

machinery is used at MuvStrong because the exercises performed by all clients and coaches are designed to create isolated movements that maximize and target the desired muscle groups. The exercises are based off natural movements which produce healthy and long-lasting results. For further information, contact MuvStrong at 631-527-5755.

Indy Fit

by Nicole Teitler

Revive Your Life Instagram is quickly becoming my Match.com for industry connections. I can look up a location or hashtag, and I’m instantly viewing countless options of potential suitors for my next IndyFit story. An image saying a thousand words equates Instagram profiles to a novelesque picture book.

Typing in #HamptonsFitness led me to discover a company named REVIVE Hamptons Wellness. After several weeks of placing the direct messages on the back burner, while at the Wellness Foundation’s summer benefit on June 24 I met a couple who introduced themselves as “partners in life and in business.” It was Jessica M. Bailey and Mateusz Mostek, the co-founders of my Insta-interest. It was bashert, as the Yiddish would say (meant to be).

REVIVE Hamptons has been running for over four years, a concierge wellness business serving clients in their homes, offices, hotels, and seaworthy yachts. Their company offers a plethora of services such as massage therapy, acupuncture, pilates, yoga, personal training, farm-to-table cooking, and even an integrative health coaching with a six-month program. What makes this business unique is how its growth has remained purely organic, relying primarily

on word of mouth advertising. I was situational proof that a simple search can lead to discovering the unknown. Ironically, Instagram was the initial force behind this couple as well.

Bailey and Mostek met at the Blue Parrot in East Hampton at the summer launch party of The Free Ride. Mateo was providing therapeutic massages, advertised on Instagram, which intrigued Jessica to join the event. Initially, the two exchanged cards for business. Nine patiently-awaited months later they went on their first date.

“[He was] so carefree, original, and one of those nights you will never forget,” Bailey remembered. “We had drinks at B Smith’s in Sag Harbor and then created our own vintage dress-up fashion show at Around Again on the wharf, and finished off at Superica’s with Kenny for his amazing margaritas. I knew that night that I was going to be standing next to this man for the long haul.” Within a month’s time of dating, a business plan was drafted. Bailey explained, “Having the same interests, passions in life, work ethic, and love of health and wellness allows us to remain on the same wavelength throughout our life and business.”

Through their empowerment together grew the goal of helping clients to take control of their wellbeing. Inspire others and you will be inspired yourself. “When a vertical of our life is out of balance, our higher vibrational self draws attention to it. At this moment, we have the opportunity to shift our perspectives, actions, and habits. This can occur several times throughout our wellness journeys, a chance to revive who and what we are,” Bailey said. This mentality influenced the company motto, “Revive Your Life.”

The “REVIVE Tribe” is comprised of 15 healers, teachers, and chefs. Their days are atypical at best; seeing back-to-back clients, running a wellness series at 14 hotel locations, organizing farm to table events, and seeking out new business collaborations with an open mind. “Who they [the tribe] are at their core -- their honesty, integrity and dedication -- is what sets them apart from the rest,” Bailey emphasized what makes her company stand out amid the bustling competition. “Perspective can shift the competitor to the partner. It’s much healthier and beneficial to our community if we lock arms with fellow businesses.”

Integrating fitness and wellness is easier said than done, and oftentimes overlooked. It’s important not to stick to only one end of the spectrum but to interconnect the two. Working out doesn’t guarantee a healthy body and eating right is only part of the equation. Though I hold true to being a #fitnessfoodie, eating hard and working out harder, I assert moderation rather than cutting out any specific food or exercise. Bailey and Mostek aim to achieve both. “It is truly difficult to be well without a fitness practice. Just because you hit the gym five days a week does not guarantee

that you feel a sense of happiness, fulfillment, and balance. We allow our clients to intuitively listen to their bodies on the cellular level to discover what it is that their bodies are craving.” Within the next few weeks REVIVE Hamptons Wellness will be partnering with Pop In Pilates, an LA based company, to open a location in Southampton. The space will allow teachers to rent a fully equipped, private studio space for $25 an hour to train their own clients and grow their individual brand. Part of the “locking arms” mentality. For the future, they are hoping to expand spaces to include health coaches, acupuncturists, yoga teachers, and massage therapists.

In addition, you can join the REVIVE Tribe in Rincon, Puerto Rico, from February 27 to March 3, 2018, for a Full Moon Retreat of yoga, Pilates, surfing, SUP, gourmet meals, aromatherapy, and luxury accommodations. How’s that for some #InstaGood?

Contact Revive Hamptons Wellness at 631-740-6523 or revivepartners@ gmail.com. Or, as I did, on Instagram @revivehamptons. You can follow more stories from Nicole Teitler on Facebook and Instagram (seriously, now you know my secret!) as Nikki On The Daily.

I was crewing with a new captain for the first time and, when the Chief Medical Officer Marty Boorstein grabbed the scotch because there was no alcohol in the medical kit, I started to worry that more was at work here than Alberto. This column is about the advances since. Just A Band-Aid When someone wants to say that something hasn’t really been fixed, they often say, “They just put a BandAid over it.” Band-Aid, which is a brand name, realized that they could do better themselves and the new waterproof Band-Aids, on the market now for a few years, are dramatically better than the old version.

NewSkin and Dermabond are liquid bandage products that are designed for the same purpose but don’t sport a warning label that says “toxic!” I have no experience with these products under maritime conditions but I have heard some skippers note that, under harsh conditions, “the stitches come out.”

If you are going to keep anything aboard stronger than Tylenol, you’ll need a doctor’s prescription to buy it and training how to administer it -- daunting.

With that said, many search and rescue teams both at the ski patrol level and on the water are opting for something called fentanyl. It is sprayed in the victim’s nose where it is fast acting but short-duration. You’ll still need medical training and prescription processing but, in lieu of giving someone a needle injection with morphine for a crushed leg from a shark bite, this might be something for the right skipper with the right profile to look into. Assists? Need some help out there? Don’t forget some low-tech devices, such as an otoscope (the thing the doctor sticks in your ear during an exam).

Dr. Mom offers a cheap, lightweight stainless-steel model with LED light. Great for fine print, finding splinters, and a bit of barnacle that embedded itself in your finger.

What do you do if someone needs artificial respiration? First, I hope you’re up to date on your Red Cross First Aid training. If not, Google it and get into a class. In addition to getting good solid training on medical tech, you’ll be properly trained in CPR, including artificial respiration. And when you train for that, one of the key items is something between your mouth and the victim’s. Only when in extremis do we bypass modern-day sanitation and body fluid control – and one device you might want to have aboard is the NuMask. It fits inside the victim’s mouth like a snorkel rather than over the face like a mask. In summary, you don’t have to stop at the over-the-counter medical kit. You can take your skippering skills to the next level. Remember, you are responsible for the crew, the boat, and the boat’s wake. BTW, if you are interested in being part of USCG Forces, email me at JoinUSCGAux@aol.com or go directly to the D1SR Human Resources Department, which is in charge of new members matters, and we will help you “get in this thing.”

There is a semi-permeable membrane over sterile gauze. This makes them waterproof and breathable. Wounds need that in order to stay clean and yet be warm and moist enough to promote circulation and healing. These new Band-Aids, and 3M’s NexCare, are roughly twice as expensive, but worth every penny in healing and prevention from infection.

These are fine for cuts and punctures but, if you have blistering on your hands from a burn of some type, you’ll need something that has medical product directly integrated into the dressing and still breathes, too. Such a product would be Band-Aid’s advanced healing blister cushion. Not all burns come from fire – think about putting your hand on a hot exhaust pipe or having a line run through your ungloved hand at a high rate of speed.
