I Wish I May, I Wish I Might By Kitty Merrill

Stargazers will have myriad opportunities to make their wishes this weekend, as the Perseids meteor showers reach their peak. Named for the constellation the so-called shooting stars appear to fall from, these annual August wonders seem to radiate from Perseus, which was named after a Greek mythological hero. Its triangular shape is supposed to call to mind the picture of Perseus carrying the head of Medusa the Gorgon. Un i v e r s e t o d a y. c o m r e p o r t s “The Perseids [showers] are also sometimes referred to as the ‘tears of St. Lawrence,’ after the Catholic saint who was martyred on August 10, 258 AD. The Perseids have been noted by Chinese astronomers as far back as 36 AD, when it was recorded that ‘more than 100 meteors flew thither in the morning.’ The annual nature of the shower was first described by Belgian astronomer Adolphe Quételet in 1835.” The origins of meteor showers are much less romantic than their namesakes would imply. According

to the website stardate.org, “Most meteor showers are spawned by comets. As a comet orbits the Sun it sheds an icy, dusty debris stream along its orbit. If Earth travels through this stream, we will see a meteor shower. Although the meteors can appear anywhere in the sky, if you trace their paths, the meteors in each shower appear to ‘rain’ into the sky from the same region.” Sean Tvelia, an astronomer, professor of physical science at Suffolk Community College, and one of the heads of the Montauk Observatory explained, “The earth is travelling through debris left by comets, and right now we’re going through some pretty dusty trails.” So, rather than the magical mystical phenomenon romantics envision, a meteor shower is little more than earth making its way through a big patch of space dirt. Still, it’s mighty pretty when the meteors streak across the sky on a summer’s night. And they go quite fast. Meteoroids, also called shooting stars and falling stars, can

travel at speeds of tens of thousands of miles per hour. That fast, they ignite from the friction of the atmosphere, some 30 to 80 miles above ground. (The rare meteors that actually hit the ground are called meteorites.) The Perseid meteor shower is often deemed the most popular to occur during the year. An article by Richard Talcott on the website astronomy.com explains why: “This annual shower seemingly has it all: It offers a consistently high rate of meteors year after year; it produces a higher percentage of bright ones than most other showers; it occurs in August when many people take summer vacation; and it happens at a time when nice weather and reasonable nighttime temperatures are common north of the equator. No other major shower can boast all four of these attributes.” Viewers can see as many as 80 meteors per hour, and there’s another plus listed by Talcott. Peak viewing this weekend will occur without the distraction (and light) of the moon. The waxing crescent moon will set just after 10 PM on Sunday night, meaning the shooting stars will have less light competition in the sky. Perseus rises in the northeast at around 11 PM. Yo u d o h a v e t o l o o k f o r them, though, Professor Tvelia emphasized. And it’s not exactly a torrent of a shower most people

might expect. One or two falling stars might streak across the sky per minute, and, since they could come from any direction, a measure of vigilance and patience is required. Backyard stargazers don’t need a telescope to see the shower, but darkness helps. Steer clear of artificial lighting, and be prepared to watch the sky during the early morning hours before 4 AM. Pretwilight Sunday morning is the predicted best time to view the most spectacular aspects of the shower, but shooting stars will be visible throughout the night all week long. Because the most vivid part of the shower happens at such a late (or early, depending on your night) hour, observatories don’t often host meteor shower watching parties, Professor Tvelia reported. Instead, individuals are encouraged to find a dark spot with lots of open skies, bring a chaise lounge, relax, and wait. “The best way to do it,” he said, “is just get a lawn chair, lie down, and stare upwards.” While the showers are slated to peak this weekend, experts suggest beginning to watch for them a few days in advance. And, if you fall asleep and miss it Sunday, the showers will continue through August 24, with the number of shooting stars per hour diminishing as time goes by. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

DON’T READ THIS. IT WILL ONLY DEPRESS YOU I’m in a crappy mood. I apologize. Please don’t read this. Just move on to a happier, less neurotic part of this wonderful newspaper. My funk started on Sunday. I was driving at a steady 16 miles an hour, hoping to speed up to a crawl on the crowded Long Island Expressway. At exit 36 I glanced at the time on my dashboard – it was 8:16 PM. Then it hit me. It was getting dark fast. Dark? How can it be getting dark at 8:16? What happened to summer? Fifteen minutes later it was middle-

of-winter dark. As best I can remember, Memorial Day was a few hours ago. I’m so bummed out. At my age I’m discovering my biggest enemy is not the clock but the calendar. I can’t stand autumn and I hate winter. Spring is nice because it’s full of promise about the upcoming summer. Then summer is here and gone in a flash. It’s seven days into August. The fun days have dwindled down to a precious few. Pretty soon the stores will be putting up Backto-School and Halloween displays. And now I’m so depressed that I can’t think of a single thing that’s going right. I’m depressed by the news, too. I’m getting on a plane next week so now we’re on high alert for an attack by al Queda.

Wasn’t it a few months ago when Obama the Fearless looked into the camera and announced that al Qaeda was nearly defeated and the war on terrorism had changed since he took office, and that this demanded a broad rethink that included scaling down drone attacks. Turns out he has described al Qaeda as having been “decimated,” “on the path to defeat” or some other variation at least 32 times since the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. I guess these were his “mission accomplished” moments. I’m sure the press is going to give him the same treatment they gave George W. Bush when he spoke too soon. Oh? No? You mean they’re going to ignore it? No wonder I’m depressed. Plus it turns out the head of the IRS wants the members of the IRS who have been given the job of enforcing Obamacare on you and me to be exempted from having to comply with Obamacare for themselves. They like their current health insurance plans, they said. So do I. So do a majority of the people reading this. What’s our choice? Then there’s the liberal-leaning Washington Post and The New York Times. The Times sold The Boston Globe and took a $900 million loss. The Washington Post just sold itself to Jeff Bezos of Amazon for a fraction of what it once was worth. It seems that as good as the Obama economic recovery that the Times and the Washington Post keep telling us about, it isn’t good enough to keep both papers from bleeding red ink. Then there’s Time Warner. They’re in a contract dispute with CBS and so they have turned off CBS in New York City. I want a refund. We all want a refund. Join with me in demanding that Time Warner pay us for keeping CBS off our television sets. I don’t know who’s right or who’s wrong

in this but I know when I signed a contract with Time Warner I signed up for all the stations available. I’m a conscientious objector in their war with CBS. I want a refund. Don’t try to cheer me up with stuff about looking forward to a great end of August and a long Labor Day Weekend. If three months of summer went in a wink, what chance do we have at one last sunny long weekend? It usually rains on Labor Day weekend, and the road on Monday is clogged with cars heading west with bikes on their roofs and couples who are each silently trying to remember the name of a good divorce lawyer. Those men and woman who aren’t married are ending their summer romances. Suddenly “Mr. Right,” who was so interesting in July, is really something of a slug in September. And that incredible cute woman who looked great by the dim light of Stephen Talkhouse in June doesn’t look as good in the pre-autumn haze. And pretty soon your little kids will have that “I don’t want to go back to school” look on their faces. The anxiety of this terrible last week of summer never leaves you. I still have nightmares about it. I’ve tried everything I could to adjust to the end of this summer. I realize I haven’t done so many things I usually do in summer. I didn’t take my annual beach walk. I haven’t barbecued. I haven’t gone into the ocean because the water was too cold. And now summer is over. And this is the worst part. If you live in New York City, four or five of the worst humans in the world are fighting for the Democratic nomination for Mayor of New York. Mayor Bloomberg may be a pain in the ass, but he’s our pain in the ass. I’m begging him to run for mayor of New York again. I will even give up salt if he says yes.

Albany Passes Foreclosure Reform

By Rick Murphy

Slowly but surely New York State, like the federal government, is beginning to rein in the banking giants who have abused consumers for decades. The latest move affords a modicum of relief to homeowners facing foreclosure. “It’s a small step,” said Assemblyman Fred Thiele, “But an important one.” The bill, hopefully, will put an end to the state’s “shadow docket.” Banks on the verge of foreclosing a mortgage sometimes sit on the paper work for months rather than file in court – and charge the embattled homeowners with interest and fees in the interim. “The main focus is to require a

certificate of merit – a mandatory conference,” Thiele said. Such conferences in the perfect world will lead to more negotiated settlements and help ease the backlog on court dockets, estimated to be at least 12,000 and as many as 25,000 cases. New York has had a courtsupervised mediation process in place for some time that was meant to give delinquent mortgage holders a chance to renegotiate. But many were stymied because once a bank filed foreclosure papers the settlement negotiation process was short-circuited. Judge Jonathan Lippman and State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman proposed the

foreclosure relief measure, Thiele said. He pointed out there was “widespread bipartisan support” in

the legislature, an indication that lawmakers recognize that “an unlevel playing field” exists.

Stricter Fines May Save Fido By Emily Toy

All our furry friends out there may be getting some extra protection from the New York State Assembly. Assemblyman Fred Thiele introduced legislation on Monday increasing the penalties for confining a companion animal in a vehicle during times of extreme hot or cold temperatures. Currently, the fine for a first

offense is not less than $50 and not more than $100. A second offense fine is not less than $100 nor more than $250. Under Thiele’s legislation the fine for a first offense would be increased to not less than $500 and not more than $1000. New legislation would also permit officers to remove endangered animals in the vehicles “where such confinement may place the companion animal in imminent danger of death or serious physical injury due to exposure to such extreme heat or cold,” according to a press release from the Assembly. The bill would also amend the law to provide that a prosecutor need not prove that the driver of the vehicle had knowledge of the dangerous confinement. The new legislation would allow the prosecutor to only have to show that the companion animal was confined in dangerous conditions. “During the July heat wave a number of cases of animals confined in vehicles were reported to my office,” Thiele said. On July 23, a Bridgehampton couple returned to their car where they found their Labrador-mix dead. Andrew Pepper, a house call veterinarian based in Sag Harbor, said, “We have to educate people better.” “Many local governments are taking steps to educate the public about the danger of such confinement,” Thiele sad. “However it is clear that the law must provide a greater deterrent and that officers must be given clear authority to remove animals that are in danger. This legislation would do just that.” The bill would be up for consideration when the 2014 session begins in January. Emily@indyeastend.com

Pantry Feeds Thousands Each Year By Kitty Merrill

Not everybody in The Hamptons is rich, or even middle class. Lots are hungry. When Gaby Scarpaci meets summer people in East Hampton and talks to them about the volume of clients served by area food pantries, the executive director of the East Hampton Food Pantry said “shock” is the typical response. “They can’t believe it,” she said. “The Hamptons have this reputation that everyone is a millionaire, everyone is living the high life. But the majority of people are just working class and the incomes are very low.” Like most locals Scarpaci

herself works several jobs to make ends meet. “The numbers are kind of overwhelming,” she acknowledged, speaking of how many clients the East Hampton pantry feeds. Last year the EHFP served over 32,000 individuals, representing 11,596 families, over 3000 seniors and close to 11,000 children. This year as of the end of June, 5322 households have been served for a total of 14,804 individuals. The numbers are down from a 2010 high of 43,519 individuals, but the need is still acute. Scarpaci believes some of the clients from South America have left the area due to lack of work and the crackdown on housing. “It’s not because the economy is better,” she said. Every hamlet in East Hampton Town has a food pantry, though some only operate once a month. The East Hampton Pantry provides food on Tuesdays, and hosts a satellite pantry in Amagansett from October through April. Although the pantry benefits from food donations from several sources -- the East End Community Organic Farm dedicated a plot and a section of its greenhouse to grow food specifically for the food pantry, and local restaurants regularly contribute – their annual food budget still tops $150,000. With that money volunteers manage to put together a bag of food valued at about $50 for each client or family. “It helps,” Scarpaci said. “That’s money they can use for the LIPA bill.” Thanks to the farm and restaurants, the bags often contain fresh produce, a feature rarely found at food pantries. As the summer season gears up, each year The Hamptons become the favored venue for innumerable charity galas and hot ticket extravaganzas, often benefitting out of town and national organizations. Admission prices for the events, which can boast celebrity hosts, can measure in the hundreds of dollars, raking in big bucks for the national charities. By contrast, the East Hampton Food Pantry this summer will host a modest number of outdoor movie events, with just a $5 suggested donation per individual / $20 per family. The series kicks off this week at Indian Wells Beach in Amagansett, with a showing of Spiderman tonight at dusk. Subsequent Wednesday showings feature Batman on August 14, Superman on August 21 and The Continued ON page 13.

Zero-Based Budget For LTV By Kitty Merrill

Looking for consistency, town lawmakers this week ratified an agreement that would require the local public access station LTV to mirror the zero-based budgeting philosophy East Hampton Town departments must. Town board members voted last Thursday night to enter into an agreement providing the station with a baseline grant of $550,000, and calling for LTV officials to make their case should they need to revise their budgets upward. For years the public access station received a flat percentage of Cablevision franchise fees given to the town, about 80 percent. It’s amounted to between $680,000 and $700,000 annually. Critics have complained that the money was turned over with little to no monitoring of how it is spent. This year, however, Councilwoman Theresa Quigley and Councilman Peter Van Scoyoc met with LTV officials to craft a new agreement. Last week the full town board voted to set a base and adopt

a three-year contract. Like any other town department, during the budget formulation process each fall, LTV will meet with elected officials to discuss and justify any need for more money. In the past, Quigley explained during a work session on July 30, “at the end of each year, LTV was giving us audited financial statements that showed how they spent the money we gave them.” Under the new agreement, the town will authorize any expenditures ahead of time, rather than simply view them after the fact. Board members will receive the end of year financial statements, too, allowing the town to monitor LTV’s budget “front and end,” Quigley explained. Last Thursday night, a hearing on the proposal drew over a dozen speakers to the podium in support of the public access station. Board members, producers, talk show hosts and school officials spoke of LTV’s value in providing government information, plus a creative outlet for both community members and children.

“You are seen and you are heard by hundreds of people,“ Bob Schaeffer told board members. Phyllis Italiano, who hosts her own talk show, said LTV has enabled her to become “the local, Italian version of Charlie Rose.” A person could watch the array of programming provided by LTV and “You could get a Liberal Arts education, with no commercials,” she offered. Sue Ellen O’Connor from Springs School reported hundreds

of students have participated in collaborative efforts with the station. “LTV is truly a partner in education,” she said. Jim Shelly, a long-time LTV board member, lauded LT V’s success as “The public voice for the citizens of East Hampton and about the citizens of East Hampton.” Just one community member offered an opposing view last Thursday night. Martin Drew complained of the prior administration’s dissolution of the town’s technical advisory committee and opined there are many projects in town deserving of money earmarked for LTV. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

The Letter And The Law By Kitty Merrill

Summer nights of neighborhoods beset by noisy crowds partying outside area clubs could be circling the drain, if officials in East Hampton Town enforce a little known law that recently came to the fore. Traditionally, when determining an establishment’s peak occupancy, town fire marshals, planners and code enforcement officers calculate floor space and count chairs. Soon, they may also be counting seats – toilet seats, that is. Last week Chief Fire Marshal David Browne notified about 35 local businesses of a provision in the New York State Plumbing Code that sets rest room requirements for a variety of types of uses – from restaurants to public auditoriums. “Please take this information and review your current activities and how these code requirements may affect your particular occupancies. This will be one of the issues this office will be looking at closely,” wrote Browne. “The occupancy numbers at many public assemblies have risen exponentially from previous years

mostly by expanding business onto outdoor space,” Browne wrote. He noted the state building code references what’s known as a change in occupancy, which occurs when the level of activity changes. “The expanded use of outdoor areas constitutes a change of use and occupancy without a change of occupancy classification,” Browne pointed out. That expanded use leads to a section of the state code noting, “Increased demand.” With increased demand, the new occupancy is subject to increased plumbing fixture requirements in accordance with the Plumbing Code of New York State, Browne reasoned. In the missive notifying business owners of the town’s intent to use those state stats when determining m a x i m u m c a p a c i t y, B r o w n e included a table that depicts the mandated numbers of fixtures and bathroom facilities per person. Nightclubs, bars, and taverns must provide one lavatory for every 75 men and one for every 75 women. Restaurants must provide one of each for every 200 patrons. The

MEDICARE ELIGIBLE? What does it cover? What supplements are available? Finding it confusing?

establishments are also required to provide one drinking fountain for every 500 people. Port-o-potties may not be used in lieu of actual toilets, Browne told The Independent. Local attorney Tina Piette appeared before the town board last Thursday night with questions about the letter. None of the members of the town board were aware it had gone out, nor was town attorney John Jilnicki. O n F r i d a y To w n P u b l i c Safety Administrator Pat Gunn explained, via email: “It is one of Chief Fire Marshal Browne’s responsibilities to issue maximum allowable occupancy limits for public assemblies including bars and restaurants. In 2012, Chief Browne astutely discovered that the Plumbing Code section of the New York State Uniform Code, which he is required to and empowered to enforce, contained additional criteria for establishing occupancy limits that should be considered in addition to the Fire and Existing Building Code sections. “At my direction Chief Browne reviewed these provisions with the regional representative from the NY State Codes Division of Code Enforcement and Administration, who agreed and substantiated the need to apply the Plumbing Code occupancy standards in conjunction with the rest of the New York State Uniform Code.” Maximum occupancy levels are

set through the Fire Code based on available space and square footage. The Plumbing code, Gunn explained, simultaneously sets limits for the number of required plumbing facilities. “It is possible, therefore, for an establishment to not be overcrowded as per the Fire Code limit, but to be in violation of the Plumbing Code for not having enough facilities for the number of occupants at the premises,” Gunn said. The letter was an advisor y designed to educate business owners, encourage a dialogue between them and the town, and make sure a fair standard was applied to all similarly situated establishments. “I commend Chief Browne for his discovery of this issue as well as his initiative and willingness to make an attempt to reign in overcrowded nightclubs in some small way,” Gunn concluded. Application of the “increased demand” plumbing requirements could give local business owners a wicked case of indigestion, as most of the popular night spots have just one bathroom per gender for their entire club, despite the hundreds who may show up to spend an evening outdoors drinking and dancing. Gunn made clear, however, that there would need to be “some sort of trigger,” such as an alteration or renovation of a certain percent of the existing structure, or a change of occupancy for a particular area such as an outdoor deck or patio that had not previously been used to that extent, to bring the Plumbing Code regs into play. kmerrill@indyeastend.com.

Bridgehampton National Bank has announced the winners of this year’s BNB Business Scholars Award. The scholarship was originated as part of the bank’s 100th anniversary in 2010. Each year, five local college bound seniors are awarded a $1000 scholarship to pursue studies in a business field. The BNB Business Scholars for 2013 are: Paris Hodges (Southampton High School), Brock Lownes (East Hampton High School), Sydney Campbell (Southold Junior-Senior High School), Yuliya Palianok (Mattituck High School), and Emily Vigliotta (William Floyd High School). On Friday BNB hosted a breakfast for the winners and their families at the bank’s main office in Bridgehampton. The scholars were welcomed by President and CEO Kevin O’Connor. “At BNB, we recognize the importance of education and applaud the achievements of our local students,” O’Connor said. “We are very proud to grant scholarships that will contribute in a small way to the bright futures ahead of them. I hope that some of them may find their way back to us in the future.” In addition to receiving a check for $1000, each student received a BNB Scholar crystal plaque engraved with their name and the date. The scholarship application process is open to seniors from high schools in the bank’s marketplace. The application requirements include having applied to a two or four-year college with a plan to study business, finance, economics, or accounting as well as answering an essay question. This year the question was, “What is the role of a community bank and how can it impact the people and businesses in your town or village?” A panel of four Bridgehampton National Bank professionals reviews the students’ transcripts, reference letters and a short essay and uses a point scale to determine the awards. Bridgehampton National Bank provides commercial banking services throughout Suffolk County and is rated one of the top Community Banks in the country. The bank has a long history of strong results and a reputation for working as partners with local businesses to help them succeed. Bridgehampton

Play Bridge A hand very similar to this one was played recently at the Water Mill Bridge Club. While it is tempting to play for overtricks at duplicate bridge, it is more important to make sure that you can make your contract. What is the best way to play this hand to make sure that you make your nine tricks? Since East is the more dangerous hand for South, he should try to not let East win a spade trick unless he, South, can do so without losing the king or queen of spades. South wants those two cards to win two tricks. Thus South should lead a diamond to dummy and lead the 2 of spades toward his hand. If East wins the ace of spades, South can count on nine tricks - two spades, two hearts and five diamonds. If, on the other hand, East fails to take the ace of spades, South wins with the king. Even if West had the ace, he could not effectively attack hearts if he won the trick with his ace. Next, after winning one spade trick, South leads a small club to the king or queen, to assure the contract, winning one spade, one club, two hearts and five diamonds. While it is important to think

Southampton Finances Do A 180 By Emily Toy

Southampton Town has cleaned up its act . . . at least with its finances, that is. Last week Standard & Poors (S&P) upgraded Southampton Town’s credit rating from AA to AA+, ultimately affirming the strong financial management of the town over recent years. In a report issued

June 27, S&P cited “the town’s successful implementation of structural and technical reforms that have stabilized its financial position and bolstered reserves in its non-general operating funds.” Two days earlier, Moody’s affirmed the town’s Aa1 rating, stating, “The Aa1 rating reflects the town’s ample reserve and cash levels

resulting from the strong financial management, large affluent tax base, and a low debt burden.” The results show a severe change in the management of the town’s finances. “Proper budgeting enables the town to deal with the unexpected without burdening taxpayers, which we’ve done now for three years,” said Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst. “I’m proud that throughout a lingering recession and several major storm events, we have been able to cure multi-million dollar deficits and achieve operating surpluses while continuing to provide high quality

services, and holding the line on taxes,” she said. Back in 2009, Southampton was placed on credit watch by S&P. It eventually downgraded the town’s rating in 2010 following what S&P called “several years of overspending across several major government and special district funds.” Some changes the town made since receiving its poor rating four years ago include centralizing purchasing, adopting a capital spending cap, codifying its fund balance policy into law, and revising the town code for capital budgeting. “This upgrade reinforces the Aa1 rating previously provided by Moody’s and is another indicator of the soundness of the fiscal management, and the organizational and structural changes implemented since 2009 as stated in the report,” according to Michael Kelly, member of the town’s Budget and Finance Committee. “This upgrade is very good news for the town and a compliment to the good work of both the staff and the management.” Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst agreed. “This ratings upgrade by S&P and the Aa1 affirmation from Moody’s underscores the merit of the financial policies and procedures implemented over the past three years, and the now healthy fiscal position of the town,” she said.

Par-Tay When Riverhead Town Police responded to a noise complaint Saturday night, they had no idea of the scene they would encounter. This wasn’t just any party on Oakland Drive South – this was a MAJOR event. Some 500 people; hundreds of cars parked on the roadway. Music blaring. Next thing they knew, an argument escalated into a brawl, and two people were stabbed. Police dispersed the crowd and eventually restored order. Around The World A young man from Romania hitched a ride to Main Beach from an East Hampton village cop on July 30. The officer noticed what appeared to be a set of tools commonly used to pick locks in the man’s bag. When questioned, the man confessed that he had just jimmied open a car at Sea Spray Cottages and stolen cash from the glove compartment. The next day police pulled over an errant driver on Accabonac Road after he crossed a double line. Further tests revealed the man, from Japan, was intoxicated, police said. Both men were transported to the local jail – talk about a failure to communicate.

It seems he was at South Pointe nightclub on Tuckahoe Lane in Southampton earlier that morning – in the wee, wee hours. He said he was roughed up outside the club after getting into an altercation with Justin Bieber’s bodyguards. The pop superstar himself, busy with trying to keep his pants up, wasn’t involved in the fray, eyewitnesses said. A Southampton Town officer responded to the hospital and interviewed the subject.

John Reilly of Hampton Bays, a major figure in documentary video, has died. Mr. Reilly, long-time executive director, principal teacher and co-founder of the Global Village Resource Center in New York City and maker of numerous video documentaries—many aired on PBS—passed away in hospice in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on July 28. Mr. Reilly’s most celebrated documentary was Waiting for Beckett, the only U.S. documentary ever made with the cooperation of Samuel Beckett, the Nobel Prize-winning playwright. Released in 1993, having taken five years to make, it features the only known footage of Beckett at work. It received many awards and was shown throughout the world. Mr. Reilly commented: “The reclusive Beckett was undoubtedly one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, but few people ever had a chance to know him. The opportunity to meet Beckett and make this documentary was the thrill of my lifetime.” Ailing in recent months, Mr. Reilly had gone to Florida for the winter with his wife, the artist

Lauren Chambers. With his health declining — Mr. Reilly suffered a stroke in recent times— they remained there. Mr. Reilly was born in Jersey City, New Jersey. He received a Bachelor’s degree from Seton Hall University and a Master’s degree from New York University where he attended its film school. But it was the new medium of video that Mr. Reilly focused on. In 1969, with Rudi Stern, he co-founded Global Village—its name taken from the term used by Marshall McLuhan who had coined it to describe the transition the world was making with television as its main medium of communication. As Mr. Reilly said of Global Village in an interview, “To experiment with video was my aspiration and to have a space that we could present the video in various forms. And not have to worry about censorship, not have to worry about rejection by networks . . . Cable [TV] didn’t exist. There was no such thing as access or anything else, that came later. So, if you think about it, where would you show anything . . . We created a place, part gallery, part theatre.” And Global Village, on Broome

www.indyeastend.com

Street in SoHo, became “the center in New York for documentary video,” as described in the 2002 book The New York Times Guide to the Arts of the 20th Century. It became the center for teaching the making of video documentaries, establishing a relationship with the New School for Social Research with courses for New School credit being offered at Global Village. It also launched the Global Village Annual Documentary Festival presented by the New York Shakespeare Festival at Joseph Papp’s Public Theatre. Moreover, decades before the term “new media” became the buzzword in media and communications that it has become in recent years, Global Village was exploring and teaching about “new media.” It published in 1981 The Global Village Handbook for Independent Producers: A Guide to Public Television and the New Media. Mr. Reilly, in addition to being head of and the principal teacher at Global Village, taught elsewhere through the decades. He was chairman of the Film and Television Department at New York Institute of Technology and taught as well at Rutgers University, UCLA, the University of Kentucky in Lexington and the City University of New York. In the 1990’s until it closed in 2005, Mr. Reilly was a professor at Southampton College of Long

August 7, 2013

Island University. He had become a full-time resident of Hampton Bays by then, having moved from SoHo. For many years before, he had lived in Hampton Bays part-time. The video documentaries Mr. Reilly directed over the years included many with his first wife, Julie Gustafson, including Giving Birth and The Pursuit of Happiness. His documentaries received numerous awards. His Waiting for Beckett alone won a Golden Apple at the International Educational Film and Video Festival, a Silver Hugo at the Chicago Film Festival, and was selected to be a feature presentation at the American Film Institute Festival. Los Angeles Times critic Robert Koehler wrote that “Waiting for Beckett is sure to stand as one of the lasting records of Samuel Beckett’s life and work.” A close friend, Karl Grossman, professor of journalism at the State University of New York/College at Old Westbury, said: “John Reilly was a giant in the new field of video documentary which he pioneered. With keen intelligence and his passion for social justice—and an extraordinary director’s eye—he set the mark for superb documentary work.” Mr. Reilly, in addition to his wife, Lauren Chambers, leaves his son, Lars, and daughter, Maire.

By Rick Murphy

RICK’S SPACE Weekend Warrior Every Friday is the beginning of a three-day binge. Yes, we are Weekend Warriors and we rock down, rock hard, party down, get hiiiiiiiigh and touch the sky. After 72 hours we come back down to the real world with the straight, boring, uncool little people like yourselves. Some folks get too old for this kind of thing, but not me. I still dig the scene baby, and I can still get down with it, get down to it, and rock the house. I couldn’t wait for work to end Friday so I could start to Part-tay, Hard-ay. First it was Happy Hour, I really

got down with it. Filled a glass with ice and poured me a tall white wine spritzer. Yeah! Rock N’ Roll, Baby. Turn up CNN — I’m letting my freak flag fly! Had to fortify myself for dinner. With a wild weekend of sex and drugs coming up, gotta get a foundation in the old gullet. I had some kale, mixed greens, and steamed tofu. I was feelin’ alright, and by that I mean pretty damn good. Time to gather up my troops, my posse, and hit the town. (I don’t really have any friends, though). I decided to go it alone – solo, baby.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

That’s me and my best friend. Then it began. You know the syndrome us partyers have – too much is never enough! We’re always looking for the next plateau. Touch the sky, y’all! So after I finished off my novel I started on another one. Wow man, far out! Next thing you know, I’m in Coma City. Woke up in my bed. With my pajamas on. I needed to score some drugs the next morning – my head was cloudy, aching from that wild-ass night. I went to my man, the guy up on Pantigo Road in East Hampton, the place all the druggies go. My man knows where all the good drugs are. “I need to score something strong, dude. Something to clear my head.” My man knew what I craved. We’ve played this scene many times. “Aisle five, next to the analgesics” he said. Wow! I dropped two of the little pink ones. I was tripping out! I could barely look at the sun. It was like, yellow. The trees were like, in bloom. There were flowers everywhere. This must be heaven, or even better, Woodstock, I thought. The irrational craving returned. I needed more. I should know not to mix drugs. I remember the old days – the speedballs. But you never learn – an addict always wants a bigger thrill, a better high. I scored a lid of kashi. And some whole grains. And nuts and seeds of every description. Saturday night was surreal. I could barely comprehend how

it felt to mix these substances. Words can’t begin to express the feelings. I was so, oh . . . I was so full of myself. Like the shifting tides, and the rotations of Mother Earth, I gravitated to a place deep inside myself, and then again outside the limitations of my mind and body. I had ingested the very natural grains that, no doubt, contained the keys to unlock the door to Nirvana. But then I began to fell a strange tightness. It was as if these psychedelic grains, nuts, and fruits had formed a thick barrier, akin to a concrete wall, to block my lower intestines. I slept uneasy, waiting for relief that never came. I needed to cop again Sunday – this time the hard stuff. A little man approached me on Pantigo. “Psssst. You wanna score some Metamucil?” he asked. I had to have it. Then My Man told me about another “Brand” that was so popular on the streets, “Brand X,” he said knowingly. “X-LAX.” Ahh, I realized. So that’s what the hipsters in Los Angeles were using these days. I had to have some. I made my own speedball, mixing the two drugs, though I knew I shouldn’t have -- but there was nothing left to lose. It’s as if all the fears and woes of mankind, all the rejections and the broken promises, all the worries and insecurities that had tied me up in knots were magically expelled from my body. I collapsed, spent from the weekend of getting high, getting down, getting with it, getting jiggly, getting to it, and getting to the bathroom – a lot. Sunday night, coming down. Cold Turkey sandwich. The next morning I woke up like a hungry orphan might, starving for food. It was much like the Jay McInerney novel, Bright Lights, Big City, except my story is well written and I’m not dumb enough to write in the present tense. I grabbed a hunk of bread and shoved it in my mouth. It was the first day of the rest of my life. I trudge off to work, holding my Bonac burger in one hand, a spittoon in the other, a Weekend Warrior no more.

Dear Rick, Wow! Do the anti-East Hampton airport people have thin skins! Mr. Arthur J.

They use the same old tired arguments! French seems to feel that as a federally

EDITORIAL

It was in the New York Times. The Wall Street Journal did an article about it. It was on the cover of Newsday. The Associated Press distributed the news to outlets all over the country. When a sitting U.S. Congressman is embroiled in an ethics investigation, it’s big news. Especially when that Congressman represents this district. In fact, we can’t recall it ever happening before hereabouts. So where were the articles in The East Hampton Star, The Press, and the other so-called “newspapers of record?” Tim Bishop is accused of soliciting a large campaign contribution in exchange for doing a favor for a constituent. That’s a criminal offense. Surely, a newspaper like The Press, which had a front page article on a “fashion camp” could find room for news that was reported all over the country, no? Several of the newspapers had articles about Bishop lobbying for Plum Island to stay open as a government research center. One newspaper had an article about the Congressman touting how wonderful Obamacare is. How can a reputable newspaper print an article about Bishop in the same week when the House Committee On Ethics (OCE) makes a startling announcement about him and NOT mention it in a story? Here is the answer: it’s the Bill McGintee Syndrome. Having been scooped by The Independent, the other newspapers decided to pretend this important story didn’t exist, just like when we broke the story that McGintee, the disgraced former Town Supervisor of East Hampton, was being investigated by the DA. Their strategy worked for a while – until four guys packing heat marched into town hall with a subpoena. In the Bishop matter, the House Ethics Committee has already been reviewing the OCE recommendations for 45 days. It has another 45 days to decide whether to move forward with full-scale investigations or end the reviews. If the Ethics Committee decides not to launch its own probe it must release the OCE report on Bishop. That should make for some interesting reading.

(by the F.A.A) licensed pilot I have no rights to use “his personal airport” due to having my home on Shelter Island. If we use that reasoning maybe all of the people who use Route 114 to cross Shelter Island should be told you cannot use those ferries -- you don’t live here. Has anyone noticed the amount of accidents that are happening on our roadways lately? Kind of makes us pilots look pretty good . . . if you care to compare the statistics. As to varying the traffic pattern? Once again, we are treated to the intellect of non-pilots. The traffic patterns are a very useful tool given to us for safety. Without

By the way, the standard of proof generally required under OCE Rules to refer a matter to the Committee on Ethics for further review is substantial reason to believe a violation may have occurred. That comes directly from the OCE handbook. That’s what’s known as news where we come from. Maybe we shouldn’t brag, but we here at The Independent can foresee the future. It’s a gift we have. Since the Ethics Committee is the equivalent of a panel of foxes ruling on the fate of a fellow fox caught in a henhouse, it’s fair to assume Bishop will get a slap on the wrist and nothing more. Then (here’s where we predict the future) the local newspapers will feature huge front-page headlines declaring Bishop’s innocence. It will become, magically, newsworthy. This isn’t about politics. It’s about having an ethically challenged congressman doing favors for cronies and funneling campaign funds to family members. What would have happened if Randy Altschuler, the Republican candidate, had defeated Bishop and then been accused of doing what Bishop did? The front-page headlines would blare the news, and it would be the biggest story of the year. And this, folks, is the reason why our local newspapers are a joke, a caricature of what newspapers are supposed to be. You can’t manufacture news and you can’t pick and choose what you report to the people. The news is the news – good or bad, Republican or Democrat, black or white, and the people need to read ALL of it. Let’s face it: a lot of the local publishers and editors pander to the rich and powerful or worse, fancy themselves as part of this elite, holier-than-thou club. And like Congressman Bishop, they kowtow to that element, and sell their souls in the process. It’s sad. When some smarmy, well-connected know-it-all sitting in an ivory tower decides what news you should be reading, we are all in trouble. And tragically, that happens around here all too often. carefully followed traffic patterns, the area surrounding the airport would resemble a WWI dogfight scene! And I would love for Mr. French to tell us, how we can take off and land, at any airport at only high altitudes? French and his statement about “peace and safety” and that “noise is a problem that can be averted by common sense.” Hmm, Mr. French . . . If that is true, and you really want peace and quiet, as I am certain your neighbors must want, as well -- maybe you should take off those loud glass packed mufflers you have on your old Mercury and practice what you preach! As to my calling anyone “stupid” -- I

called no one stupid. All I said was if you are not capable of understanding the rules that we as pilots have to go by, then perhaps you need to learn more about them before you comment! I was referring to the long gone practice of using dead reckoning. In this day and age of G.P.S no one follows railroads or the L.I.E anymore. Calm down, Artie, and relax, next to your old, loud car! RICHARD G. KRAUSE (From that foreign land of Shelter Island.)

Dear Rick, This recent wilting, depressing heatwave was eased somewhat with a little comedic relief offered up on Tuesday 7/30. An event took place in Washington. Despite being rejected and deemed dangerous by all major physiological organizations, it involved a march on Washington’s Supreme Court by the “scores” of Ex-Gays advocating the “curing” of gays of their gayness. We were about to be bowled over by this grand demonstration validating their medicament. The major Conservative sponsors were, “American Family Radio” and the celebration of “Ex-Gay Pride Month” who confidentially predicted that, “Thousands of Ex-Gays are descending on Washington” to display the validity, success and strength of their movement. Less than 10 showed up; so much for the “Pray Gay Away” faction. Encouraging also, after 37 years, Exodus International, an organization whose mission was to “help” gay Christians become straight, is not only shutting

Dear Independent, Everything came together and the weather couldn’t have been more cooperative. Because of storms and high winds early in the night many boaters didn’t come into Three Mile Harbor but we still had a great night. There are a lot of people to thank for making it happen. First of all the Grucci family – they always bring something new into the Harbor. And then there are the Marine Patrol, police and fire departments, and ambulance crew, and all the volunteers who helped make the Great Bonac Fireworks Show a huge success. And a very special thank you to everyone who donated to keep the fireworks going. One thing to remember is that this show is not a private party – it’s a fundraiser that benefits the people, programs, and projects here on the East End. We support the food programs of 10 different churches, have awarded 23 college scholarships to graduating seniors, contributed to the trustees shellfish seeding program and the U.S. Coast Guard’s Boating Safety Week, among many other programs. Please make a tax-deductible donation not only to keep the fireworks in Three Mile Harbor but also to show support for those on the East End. ROSSETTI PERCHIK A.I.A.

The board of directors voted to begin a new and separate ministry called “Reduce Fear.” They say it is founded in John 13-24: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” One must ask, why does it take so damned long for these professed God lovers to see what Jesus was all about, rather than being among the most prejudiced, selfish and self righteous of people.

Unpopular Bill Dear Editor, I personally think your editorial on Obamacare and Tim Bishop was excellent. I didn’t find anything but truth in the article. Mr. Bishop is an ass-kissing Democrat and

will do anything in order to get re-elected. I am not a right-winger or a left-winger -- I am an American that is wondering what happened to this country? Mr. Bishop and every one of the House and Senate should be fired for not reading a bill 2000 pages long put in front of them. This bill concerned every citizen in America and no one read it, while President Obama and Nancy Pelosi, his sidekick, rammed it down our throats. This is a very unpopular bill, including Congress that refuses to be a part of it, and the unions that laid out $400 million to get Obama re-elected don’t want any part of it, all finding this out because now someone has read it. How many more millions will be added to the rolls of Americans with no health care once employers begin to lay off or cut hours? It will be astronomical. This is not misinformation being thrown out there by loathing right-wingers or Republican governors, this is fact.

Float Plan The Float Plan is nominally known as a mechanism for ensuring that missing vessels are indeed missed in time for action to be taken that might lead to the rescue of the crew rather than the recovery of their bodies. “Boat-A is supposed to be at Payne’s Marina in the Great Salt Pond on Block Island at this time and date. Is it there?”

Bass Ain’t Bitin’! Shinnecock Bay/Inlet/Ocean Bass fishing is slow at best but there are huge pods of bunker with bluefish and a few bass lurking below them. Try live lining a bunker or even sending a fresh bunker head to the bottom may be a good option. The fluke bite still remains best in the bay. The ocean is holding fish at various locations but has been void of many keepers. The structure at the reef and local wrecks have been the best locations for ocean keeper fluke. The bay bite remains strong east of the bridge and inside the inlet as well as the flats at the back of the inlet. Best bait has been live snappers and long strip baits. Weighed in a 10-pound fluke on Saturday morning caught by Ken Booth on strip bait at the back of the inlet. Triggerfish are hanging around the inlet’s structure and the buoys at the back of the inlet. The seabass have been on the reef but not big numbers.

Peconics Jessup’s Neck holding a decent amount of porgies for the those looking to anchor up and chum.

Shore Bound/Canal/Ocean Beaches/Jetties The Shinnecock Inlet’s jetties have seen plenty of fluke being caught with some triggerfish and blues mixed in. Clam baits are producing a few bass in the early mornings. Over at the Ponquogue Bridge, the best action has been both fluke and snappers. A few bass have been taken as well on the night tides with live baits. The ocean beaches continue to see a pick of schoolie bass on the dawn and dusk tides on plugs and clams. The Shinnecock Canal has plenty of snappers along with porgies down off the jetties at the north end.

A few reports came in from the edge, some small to medium yellow fin at the dip, a couple of bigeyes near the Hudson along with some Mahi’s mixing in.

Float Plans

Continued from page 38. safely. The float plan provides the opportunity for the skipper to sit with his or her charts, in the calm of a kitchen, den or study, and literally walk through the passage with parallel rulers and dividers. What is the goal of such detailed analysis? The net effect is to create your own Pilot Guide for the entire passage and to be able to assign predicted times to each leg. Deviation from predicted times is an early warning to the skipper that something is up – working against (or with!) a current, cross winds creating additional work effort for the engines to hold course, etc. All of this translates into fuel consumption “deltas” which ultimately leads directly to SOLAS issues. If you have made an error in the development of your pilot guide, the rest of the guide is likely to be suspect and you’ll have to do what every skipper has done for centuries untold – improvise carefully. If the chart is generally consistent but winds and tides have done the inevitable, then the overall pilot guide is likely to still have integrity. But, once again, you’ll have to do what every skipper has done for centuries untold – improvise carefully. Weather With respect to predicting the weather, I use the Weather.com website – www.weather.com - and the reason I do is because I can get weather prediction by the hour. If the chance of precipitation for a particular day is 50 percent, but it is 10 percent in the morning and 90 percent in the afternoon, I want to know that. Put in your zip code or city name and click “Go.” Click on “More Details” and see how the hourly details add to the weather analysis. Tides Nothing is more likely to surprise you and more potentially perilous to happen than running aground – and understanding the tide is all about that. There are several good services to use but there is something very subtle about tide analysis that no chart gives you. Tides change at different rates at different places (watch for a column here soon where we’ll talk Time and Tides.) Knowing the tides at an inlet while spending the next six hours transiting from cove to bay “on the inside” could require major mental gymnastics in order to keep pace with the pace of the tide as it works its way through that inlet and across the bays and into the coves. Why do that if the internet can do it for you?

Local Notice to Mariners As of April 1, 2004, the United States Coast Guard stopped mailing the Local Notice to Mariners. Instead, it is accessible on the Internet – and they will even email you a link to the updates each week as they “go to press.” The electronic versions of LNM appear on the U.S. Coast Guard Navigation Center’s Website at http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/?page Name=LNMlistRegistration Why go out upon the briny deep with less information than there is available to you? What’s the upside in that? Go on their website, click around until you find the area for you to put your email address in – and from then on get, direct from the United States Coast Guard forevermore, the latest they know about what is happening “out there.” And it’s free.

SIYC: Makos And Threshers The Star Island Yacht Club hosted its 21st Annual Mako and Thresher Shark Tournament last weekend. Thirty-three boats carrying 240 fishermen angled for over $111,000 in prize money. The heaviest thresher, landed by Captain James Gravle aboard the Dream Catcher, weighed in a 289 pounds. The second heaviest, at 260 pounds, was caught by Captain Gary Ramesberger aboard the Better Days. Troy Hazen hooked the third place thresher, a 240-pounder, on Captain Jeff Woerz’s Crack-Oar. Rob Padula landed the heaviest Mako, which tipped the scales at 203 pounds. He sailed aboard Am Sam, piloted by Captain Frank Rotundo. Second place was caught aboard the Jack Pot by angler Tony Sansevariao. Captain Rob Dinoto was at the wheel when Tony pulled in the 186-pound prize. Juan Baron caught the third-heaviest Mako, weighing in at 167 pounds, aboard the My Rock, captained by Mike Hegarty.

Take a Kid Fishing Program

The Montauk Chamber of Commerce is continuing a program this summer intended to generate more interest in fishing, for kids, ages six-16. The Take a Kid Fishing program teaches angling techniques and encourages fun. The Harbor’s captains and mates are eager to take kids out on the water and teach them how to bait, hook and clean their catch. Fishing equipment, bait and personal flotation vests will also be provided. These learning expeditions will take place on various dates in August starting Monday and will be on a variety of fishing boats. Children fish free of charge provided it is their first time on a fishing boat. There will be a $10 fee for adults. Sign-ups are being accepted only on Monday afternoons at the Montauk Chamber of Commerce on Main Street or by emailing mcoc@montaukchamber.com. Pat Shea is coordinating the sign-ups. Visit the Montauk Chamber’s Facebook page for updates on the outings and photos. Call 631-668-2428 for more information.

Surprise! Ospreys Take HCBL Title By Rick Murphy

It was a topsy-turvy season. One by one, the teams moved into first place, stamping themselves as title contenders. When the smoke cleared after the final game, there was one team left standing in the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League – the North Fork Ospreys. And that’s why you have to play the games – the Ospreys were in last place a month ago, seemingly dead in the water – and then they caught fire. Sunday night in Peconic, in front of a raucous crowd at Cochran Park, The Ospreys culminated their prolonged rise from the dead by nipping Center Moriches 2-1. Nick Heath, a legitimate speedster, opened the bottom of the eighth with an infield single and then stole second. Austin Miller stroked a two-out double down the left field line to plate Heath and break a 1-1 tie. David Deliz closed it out for the winners, giving North Fork the 2013 title, its second league crown in four years. Heath, who plays for

Northwestern State, was named the series MVP. All Heath did was hit .455, score five runs, and steal three bases. Center Moriches did not go down easily. Mike Roehrig worked a oneout walk in the ninth, and advanced all the way to third on a wild pitch and passed ball. However, Deliz battled back to strike out Stefan Trosclair. Zach Persky, the Battlecats hottest hitter, strode to the plate with the season on the line. Deliz induced him to fly out to rightfield, and the celebration began. Deliz came in an inning earlier after the Battlecats evened the score at one on a single by Matt Hinchy and had the bases loaded with nobody out. Deliz got a strike out for the first out. Shortstop Eric Solberg then turned in the play of the day by making a diving snare of a grounder up the middle and turned it into a double play. Both starters pitched well enough to win. North Fork’s David Jesch threw seven shutout innings, fanning nine. Battlecats

righthander Mike O’Reilly didn’t give up an earned run over his seven innings, and fanned eight. Center Moriches had some consolation – the team reached the championship series for the

first time in its HCBL tenure. The Battlecats swept top-seed Sag Harbor in the semifinals, and scored a resounding 8-2 win in Game Two Saturday to force the decisive third contest.

FANTASY SP By Skippy Brown

RTS

Playing With The Big Boys When you play fantasy football with the big boys, you have to learn not to believe everything the big boys say. Most of the professional Fantasy Football pundits feed off each other. Therefore, the “now” players are hyped so much that the rest of us tend to pick them too early come draft day. Conversely, when the big shots are down on a player, that player tends to become undervalued in draft. One such player this year is

W

Antoine Foster. He has been ranked among the top four fantasy backs in each of the past four years. He was number one a couple years ago and number two last year. Yet people are passing on him this year. Why? Because the so-called experts are telling us to. The feeling is Foster carried the ball too many times last season and that injuries are going to take a toll on him. But he’s not injured. More to the point, in the playoffs last year, despite his grueling regular season workload, he had two great games. There is absolutely no reason why he shouldn’t be picked second or third this year. So it was when I participated in the National Fantasy Football Online Championship draft Saturday. I requested the seventh overall pick, and that’s what I got. If you are allowed to pick a draft spot, that’s the place to be this year: mid pack. That’s because there are eight really good running backs and Calvin Johnson, a wide receiver

Put another way, the guy with the first pick in a 12-man draft will have to wait 22 picks before he picks again. That’s a long time. Consider my draft: Foster fell to me at #7 overall; I grabbed him. I took Jimmy Graham, a tight end, in the second round because he is so much better than all the others. My game plan was to wait until the seventh or eighth round to take a quarterback – I figure there are 12 good fantasy quarterbacks, and they are so closely bunched at the back end that I’m not even sure which one I want most. But lo and behold, there was a quarterback run in the sixth round. Five teams took QBs, and four others had gone earlier. If I did not have a pick in the middle of the next round, I would have lost out on one of the good QBs. The truth is, I would have been screwed. As it turned out I ended up with Robert Griffin III in the seventh, and backed him up with Eli Manning in the ninth. As extra insurance I took Michael Vick in the 16th. In addition to Foster, I picked up David Wilson and Run DMC (Darren McFadden) at running back. Because DMC is injury prone, I handcuffed

him with Marcel Reese later in the draft. Once I picked Graham, I knew I would be light at wide receiver, so I reached for Tavon Austin, the explosive Rams rookie, in the sixth round. The Rams loved him so much, they traded two first round picks in this week’s draft to move up and get him. If he delivers, I’m primed for a big year. Important tip: Know your league’s scoring settings. This particular league gives one point for every pass reception. That means running backs like Marshawn Lynch and Alfred Morris lose value – neither catches many passes On the other hand, a guy like Darren Sproles moves way up. In CBS leagues, QBs get six points for passing TDs, so scoring machines like Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning need to be bumped up in drafts, to the late first or early second rounds. Yes, listen to the experts and pundits. But it’s YOUR team. Don’t let them dictate what you do. “Skippy Brown” recently won the Draft King Spring Fling contest, besting over 1000 other professional fantasy baseball players.
