Horses In Jeopardy If Montauk Stable Closes By Kitty Merrill

Chrissy Dalbora’s been riding the horses at Rita’s Stable her whole life, since before she was even born. Her mom was Rita Foster’s first trail guide and led rides when she was pregnant with her daughter. Now a mom herself, Dalbora can’t get her toddler, Cole, off the horses. She hopes he’ll get to enjoy the same outdoor lifestyle she grew up loving. But the prospect seems a dim, unless help from the community can be harnessed. Over the weekend a post on the I Love Montauk Facebook page began to galvanize supporters. A well-wisher reported the horses at Rita’s were due to be sent to auction today, and some of them would be slaughtered, prompting a wave of sympathetic responses. In an interview with The Independent on Monday, Dalbora said the auction wasn’t set, but “We’re going under, no doubt about it.” Foster has been at her daughter Lee Lee’s bedside as she battles the final stages of an illness. Dalbora is acting manager and said someone had come along offering to partner with Foster and mount a benefit

for the stables. They learned the would-be partner actually wanted to take the site over and develop it, and hopes of a last minute bail out were dashed . . . unless friends and patrons step up. Working the 18 and a half acre site with just one stable hand to help care for 14 horses, plus an assortment of goats, sheep, ducks, geese, chickens, donkeys and even a peacock, Dalbora noted, “I’m the last one standing.” Facebook posts from supporters, and those who characterize Rita’s as a Montauk touchstone, listed numerous rescue sites that might take the horses, but, said Dalbora, “We don’t want them rescued. This is their home.” As she talked about what life at the stables is like and how much the rides mean to people who visit, an elderly chestnut mare named “Jinx” ambled out of the stable and down the dirt driveway. “If we had to auction Jinxy off, she would be slaughtered. No doubt about it; she can’t work,” Dalbora said. “We don’t want to have to put any of these guys down,” she continued. “We just need to get them through

Often, she meets children ready for their first rides, brought to the stable by parents who rode horses there when they were kids.

NEVER ARGUE WITH A CRAZY DEMOCRAT Ninety percent of my friends are Democrats. If one lives in Manhattan and the Hamptons, one is not about to run into many Republicans. Most of my Democrat friends are smart, well-educated and easy to deal with. But sadly, in the group there are a few ultra-Liberal Democrats who are batshit crazy. I can say anything I want about them because a long time ago they told me they would never read this column again as they never want to read a negative word about Barack Obama. I can write a dozen columns

laughing at “The Obama Follies,” but I’ve come to grips with the fact that the majority of the Democrats reading this think that Barack Obama is a great president. Nothing he says or does will ever change that. Nothing I write will ever change that. The fact is they voted for him twice and in their clouded eyes he can do no wrong. One of them, a good friend who is part of the batshit ultra-Liberal crazies, actually said to me the other day, “Wasn’t it wonderful how Obama solved the problem with Syria?

shot.” When I said, “What about his leading from behind? What about the red line crap? What about we’re losing the Middle East? What about Putin? What about Obama’s hemming and hawing about Syria for a year while hundreds of thousands of innocent people were being killed? What about his going to Congress when there was no way his plans to bomb Syria were going to be approved in the House?” My friend just smiled and said, “Don’t you know Obama rope-adoped Putin and Congress and now the problem will go away. No one is talking about chemical warfare anymore, are they?” “But what about Obama’s screaming that we had to punish the Syrian president for chemical warfare with a military strike? And by the way, where were George Clooney and Susan Sarandon and Barbra Streisand and all those dumb Hollywood pacifists when Obama the fearless warrior was screaming for blood?” My friend looked at me and shook her head. “You really don’t get it, do you? “Hollywood knew that Obama didn’t mean it. He’s a much better actor than anyone in Hollywood. And now he has skillfully pushed the problem into the U.N., where all world problems go to disappear.” “Oh yeah, in that case my choice for the Republican presidential ticket in 2016 is Putin and Christie. “Putin will run on the old Woodrow Wilson campaign slogan: ‘HE KEPT US OUT OF WAR.’” “ Yo u ’ l l n e v e r s e e a n o t h e r Republican president in your lifetime,” was her retort. “But . . . but . . . but . . .” I

sputtered. “What about Obamacare? Did you see the story in Monday’s New York Times that health insurers are significantly limiting the choices of doctors and hospitals available to Obamacare consumers? Obama assured everyone that they would be able to keep their own doctors. He lied! He lied!” I screamed. “Of course he lied,” my friend smiled at me. “Do you think the countr y would have accepted Obamacare if he told you the truth?” Then my friend looked at me and said, “Obama knew that there was no way anyone would be able to keep their own doctors, but he couldn’t tell you and the rest of the country the truth because, in the words of Jack Nicholson, ‘You can’t handle the truth’.” “And what about our Mayor’s race? Bill de Blasio is a Leftist. He’s a Socialist. Did you hear that he plans to eliminate ‘Stopand-Frisk’ with a program for community involvement? If he doesn’t get guns out of high-crime neighborhoods, hundreds of young African-Americans will be gunned down.” My friend looked serious for a few seconds. Then she said, “Bill de Blasio is a Democrat and that’s all that matters to me.” I was speechless. I will never attempt to argue politics with her again. I’ve come to the conclusion that some Liberal Democrats are as outof-touch with reality as the Tea Party Republicans are. They’re cut from the same cloth. They are out of their minds. Both sides are determined to have their way, even if it destroys this country. If you wish to comment on “Jerry’s Ink” please send your message to jerry@ dfjp.com.

Kabot Should Prevail In A Squeaker

By Rick Murphy

Though officially the race is still too-close-to call, it appears Linda Kabot’s effort to be placed on the Conservative Party line is going to be successful. Two Southampton Conservative Party leaders endorsed Phil Keith for the position of Town Supervisor, setting the stage for a primary on September 10. There were no names on the ballot, only a write-in space. In the end, both sides agreed

T US

J

Kabot prevailed a single vote, 7372, though six of Kabot’s votes were challenged by the Keith camp. Onlookers all agreed the ballots in question were meant to be Kabot votes but were spelled incorrectly. Keith, a retired U.S. naval commander, author, Har vard graduate, and is a member of the Southampton Town Planning Board, called on the Conservative Party to drop its challenge last week, but sources said one of the

commissioners, Anita Katz, had already ruled to allow them. Wayne Rogers, the other commissioner, is set to make his decision Monday but Kabot is expected to be certified nonetheless. “I won by a vote. It shows every vote counts,” she said. “Every vote should count, despite the misspellings, what matters is the intent of the voter.” The primary was a culmination of two months of infighting between party leaders and Kabot. Howard H. Heckman III was originally named by Town Conservative Party boss Jim Malone to run for supervisor on the party line. Suffolk County Conservative Party boss Ed Walsh had previously

blocked Kabot’s attempt to get on the Conservative Party line by refusing to file what is known as a “Wilson Pakula” authorization – because Kabot is not a registered party member, she needed the authorization to appear on ballot. But Kabot was holding all the right cards. First she challenged Heckman’s petitions and he was thrown off the ballot. Then she filed an “Opportunity to Ballot” petition, which was granted, allowing her to run as a write-in candidate. Malone challenged that decision but lost. Kabot, a former town board member and supervisor, is a proven vote getter. Conservative Party Vice Chair Jeremy Brandt could not be reached for comment by press time.

Urge Trash Action By Kitty Merrill

Local nature photographer Dell Cullum appeared before the East Hampton Town Board last Thursday night, talking trash. Cullum’s been on a quest to convince officials to address the increasing litter problem at town beaches. He’s posted numerous photos, taken at Indian Wells Beach in Amagansett, on Facebook, lensed a short film that was the subject of a feature in this newspaper (Check Indy’s online archives for the August 28 article, “Eden Abused in East Hampton”), and most recently created a website entitled

TheUglyHamptons.com. Speaking to the town board, Cullum, who takes pictures every morning at area beaches, decried a “pattern of neglect” in terms of trash on the beaches. Guidelines for fires and littering are clearly explained, but not enforced. From one year to the next, he said the problem has “increased tenfold.” Acknowledging enforcement staff is stretched thin, the East Hampton resident said community members need to step up. So far, Cullum said, he’s received help and ideas from people who “have the same heartfelt care for this town as I know many of you do.” In fact, following a recent posting of photos showing the messy aftermath of a party, which included plastic cups inscribed with a company name, Facebook friends and Cullum tracked down the party planning firm and the caterer responsible for the mess. They found the mass gathering permit allowing the event, and, once contacted, the caterer promised to clean up the mess, which had been there for two days after the event. “I don’t think trash is a complicated issue to solve, but what I saw over this summer was so disgusting it made my heart cry,” Cullum told the board. He urged both the town board and the public to act soon to address the problem before next summer, to preserve one of the last beautiful and untouched places the public can control, and promised to return with more information, ideas and photographs. kmerrill@indyeastend.com.

Without Services, A District At Risk By Kitty Merrill

They have nowhere to go . . . nowhere nearby at least. When children from uninsured families are in crisis, the only option is sending them to the psychiatric emergency program at Stony Brook University Hospital, nearly 60 miles away. And when they are released, according to Reverend Doctor Katrina Foster, “There’s no follow up, there’s no after care. The child is back in the classroom the next day.” Rev. Foster, who is the pastor of St. Michael’s Lutheran Church in Amagansett and Incarnation Church in Water Mill and a member of the strategic committee formed last year after the suicide of East Hampton High School student David Hernandez,

spoke before the East Hampton Town Board last Thursday night, urging members to restore cuts to local services. Mental health ser vices for uninsured families in East Hampton just don’t exist, she said. While she expressed an understanding of the difficulty faced by elected officials attempting to solve fiscal woes, Rev. Foster said, more and more, she and school officials are seeing what’s happening as a result of these cuts – “There’s an incredible number of people not able to get mental health services.” The need is great, she said, “far beyond” her capacity as a provider of pastoral counseling, “and I have nowhere to refer them.” On Friday, East Hampton High

School Principal Adam Fine and school psychologist Ralph Naglieri continued to paint the bleak picture. Fine estimated about 30 students at the high school per year could be characterized as “in crisis.” If a child suffers a mental problem in school, district officials first contact his or her parents. If they can’t transport the patient to Stony Brook, school officials must call the police. The teen is taken to the hospital – a 58 plus mile trip – in a police car, Fine said, adding, “and police don’t change their protocol for children.” The Family Service League provides mental health services for uninsured and underinsured patients in East Hampton. But, Naglieri said, “If we make a referral, they can be on a

waiting list for three to four months. That’s how much they [Family Service league] are inundated.” Last spring following the Hernandez suicide, the East Hampton school district began to work in collaboration with the New York State Office of Mental Health. Officials there, said Fine, were “shocked” by the lack of services, not just in East Hampton, but across both the North and South Forks. In fact, while state officials lauded East Hampton’s response to the suicide, which included an in-depth study of the high school’s culture and climate, they placed the district on their “at risk” list due to the lack of accessible services for the community’s most vulnerable members. As the effort to avoid another tragedy progressed, last spring high school officials worked with counterparts to host a community forum in Southampton. Tonight, East Hampton High School will be the venue for another “Evening of Healing and Dialogue.” Brook Yonick from the state Office of Mental Health and Melanie Puorto, director of the New York State Suicide Prevention Initiative are slated to be the guest speakers. They’ll discuss students’ grief needs after suicide, common myths and facts about suicide, common warning signs, and more. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers as well. Grappling with a double digit deficit, in 2011 Supervisor Bill Wilkinson cuts dozens of jobs from the town payroll, not filling positions left vacant by employees who took advantage of a retirement incentive. The Human Services department saw the largest exodus of employees. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

LIPA Sues Southampton By Emily Toy

The Long Island Power Authority is suing Southampton Town for over $200,000 in overdue payments for an underground power line. LIPA is charging Southampton with a breach of contract and is now seeking to force to town to pay up about $201,497. The dispute arose from an agreement in 2008 to place a four-mile section of a new 13.5-mile cable on Scuttle Hole Road in and near Bridgehampton. LIPA agreed to bury the cable, after neighbors, residents and town officials complained of how unappealing, aesthetically, and potentially hazardous during a hurricane, 60-foot poles would be. The catch was the town would be required to cover the costs if LIPA customers didn’t foot the bill. Last Thursday, Southampton Town announced via resolution the counsel it’s hiring to defend the town. Putting the cable underground cost about $11 million, which LIPA and Southampton Town agreed would be repaid through a fee called a visual benefits assessment on bills. Average residential customers pay around $4 a month for the cable fee, and that charge will continue for about 20 years. LIPA said the underground line was needed immediately to meet rising electricity demands and to avoid summer blackouts on the East End. The decision to bury the cable line was unprecedented, Lines were buried along Scuttle Hole Road between Water Mill and Bridgehampton. “After unsuccessfully trying to resolve the matter without l i t i g a t i o n , L I PA c o m m e n c e d an action against the Town of Southampton in connection with the Town’s failure to follow the terms of the court-ordered settlement agreement related to the Visual Benefits Assessment,” LIPA said in

a statement. According to LIPA spokesman Mark Gross, the $201,496.54 represents the amount due to LIPA from those subject to fees but who haven’t paid. The amount represents those who didn’t pay all or a portion of the fee for 2012. Gross said between 2500 and 3000 customers are liable and nearly 20,000 customers are subject to the assessment. LIPA presented Southampton Town with a list of delinquent bills in April, in a notice of claim filed before the suit. It included amounts due for 2012. According to LIPA, the town failed to pay, thus breaching the contract.

Eye On Education By Dr. Dominic Annacone

The Springs Superintendency In New York State, every school district, irrespective of size, must appoint a superintendent of schools. This requirement even applies to the smallest districts such as Wainscott and Sagaponack, “one-room” school districts with a few elementary grade levels having low student enrollments. A primary reason for this rule is that every school district from Wainscott to Sachem (one of the largest New York districts) must comply with all state mandates. Under the watchful eye of its superintendent, all districts must file the same reports, administer state testing programs, follow all budgeting and financial accounting rules, and conduct governance procedures including public meetings, policy making, district voting, etc. O b v i o u s l y, f u l f i l l i n g t h e s e regulations in small districts such as Wainscott and Sagaponack doesn’t entail the quantitative considerations of larger districts. That is why a part time superintendent in those districts is more defensible than in larger districts that have significantly

higher enrollments and more grade levels such as the Springs School District. Springs decided to hire a part time superintendent two years ago in an attempt to save money. The savings would accrue from a lower superintendent’s salary and avoidance of paying fringe benefits. However, this year the New York Commissioner of Education ruled that last year’s Springs part time superintendent would not be granted a waiver for hiring because his projected earnings would exceed the income limitations placed upon earnings retired school personnel are allowed to make in addition to their retirement compensation. Consequently, Springs was forced to hire a new part time superintendent this year. Designation of the superintendency as a part time position reflects a lack of understanding of the importance of a chief school officer. It is widely held that a school board’s responsibility to appoint a superintendent is the most important decision that governing

FARMS

body must make. The following performance responsibilities of a school superintendent found in most job descriptions highlights that importance: • The superintendent is the chief executive officer of the district, with the right to speak on all matters before the Board of Education, but not to vote. • The superintendent must enforce all provisions of law and all rules and regulations relating to the management of the schools and other educational, social, and recreational activities under the direction of the Board. • The superintendent keeps the Board informed of the condition of the district’s educational system assuring effective communication between the Board and the staff of the school system. • He/she prepares the agenda for Board meetings, in consultation with the Board President and prepares and submits recommendations to the Board relative to all matters requiring Board action, placing before the Board such necessary and helpful facts, information and reports as are needed to insure the making of informed decisions. • He/she develops and recommends to the Board long-range plans consistent with local district needs and consistent with Board objectives. Unfortunately it seems that

IN THE NEWS

in some school districts the superintendent’s role has been reduced to managerial functions rather than that of educational leader. Educational leadership is much more than making sure the buses are on time, the buildings are heated, the paperwork is completed, and other perfunctory managerial jobs are completed. Springs’ decision to reduce their superintendency to a part time position lowers expectations and lessens the possibility of their chief school officer adequately addressing the instructional health of the district, especially in matters pertaining to teaching and learning. In my opinion a superintendent working part time in Springs cannot properly monitor the learning environment and serve as a catalyst for making needed improvements therein. A superintendent should be the objective overseer of a district’s instructional performance and, as its recognized leader, that person’s ability to impact the learning climate of a school district requires fulltime engagement with the school community. Because of the extensive, complex, and critical nature of a superintendent’s role in school district operations, I don’t believe a part time chief school officer in Springs can adequately fulfill those obligations.

RICK’S SPACE Superstitions I am not a superstitious person. I don’t care if it’s Friday the 13th. Black cats cross my path all the time and as far as I’m concerned it’s their bad luck, not mine. I step on cracks all the time and have never broken my mother’s back, although she says I give her agita a lot. And I’m not kissing someone ugly, even if she (or he) is standing under mistletoe. I don’t think garlic protects us

from vampires, though I do know it makes my breath smell really good. In fact, when I was a teenager I would eat raw garlic before every date, which probably explains why I seldom had a second date with the same girl. It could also be because I was really obnoxious.

“Superstition” plays and the ads show the crazy things fans do during games to “help” their teams win. The tagline is, “It’s only weird if it doesn’t work.” Did you know “a bird that comes in your window brings bad luck?” Tis true. I believe that a bird that crashes into your closed window has worse luck. Have you ever done the wishbone thing? It got completely out of hand when I was growing up. First, someone would have to locate the thing during dinner. I’d be prying apart every piece of chicken looking for the damn thing. I’d never find it, mainly because I’d be searching the drumsticks. My big brother always found it because (duh) he knew exactly where to look for it. The thing would hang somewhere, drying. It’s bad enough we have to cook and eat birds, it’s even worse to dry out their bones around the house afterward. Then, the ceremonial breaking would occur. My brother would always grip the big half of the wishbone in his fist and make me pull a sliver from it. Thus, he would always “win” and his wish would then come true. Once he told me he wished something horrific would happen to me, like getting scalded with molten lava and having my face melt away. I told him I didn’t believe the superstition because even though I got the small piece my dreams came true every single time we did it. “What do you wish?” he finally asked. “That you’ll turn into an asshole,” I said. And then he beat me up, but I wished for that too,

so it was cool. Here’s a topical one to ponder: “To kill an albatross is to cause bad luck to the ship and all upon it.” WTF? What does that mean? First of all, I believe an albatross is a big goofy bird, like Big Bird, something that looks like a camel with wings. Why would we want to kill one? To get the wishbone? What if it flew in my window, would it be bad luck? The point of all this is that I too, have fallen into a routine of Sundays, believing that my Fantasy Football empire will collapse if I don’t follow it religiously every week. I wake up and sing, pretty much at the top of my lungs, “I’m feeling kind of fun day, a special kind of Sunday.” Translated, this means I’m happy because I have conditioned Karen to allow me to lay around the entire day, do no work, ignore everyone and everything, lock myself in the man cave, yell and scream at the television and curse and threaten the players and coaches. I believe this is good for my blood pressure and makes me a better person . . . and husband, of course. I lift weights for a few minutes – you know, testosterone and all that – and make grunting sounds to let Karen know I’m manning up. I always put my baseball glove on right before the kickoff – I know, wrong sport and all, but it’s what I do. The sad thing is even if I see a penny face up I can’t pick it up because I’m wearing the damn thing. My favorite superstition is that it’s bad luck to light three cigarettes with a single match. I could never figure that one out. First of all, it’s bad luck to smoke the cigarette. One theory was during wartime lighting three cigarettes would give a sniper time to fix the target. It turns out Ivar Krueger started the tall tale and spread it around. Why? He was the world’s biggest manufacturer of wooden matches. In other words, he didn’t need a wishbone -- he made his own luck.

Nary A Word Dear Editor, Wow! What condescension displayed by town board Democrat candidate, Kathee Burke-Gonzalez, in her 9/18/13 letter, toward town clerk and town board Republican candidate, Fred Overton. All simply because she thinks his memory differed from hers concerning her statement at the Duck Creek Association candidate get-together. Ms. Burke-Gonzalez is 1/3 of the Democrat ticket running on a platform to bring back civility to town hall. The Democrat statement of purpose signed by all three candidates, including Ms. Burke-Gonzalez, on August 12, states that she believes in “civil discourse” and that no matter who you are “you deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.” Sounds like Madam Burke-Gonzalez may need some “dignity,” “respect” and “civility” lessons before taking a seat on the Board.

EDITORIAL

It is obvious that board members, be it town, village, planning, or zoning, must recuse themselves from voting on matters that they may have a stake in, either directly or indirectly. Certainly, for example, a town board member would never vote to purchase property owned by a family member -- or would he (or she)? We’re not suggesting these types of things happen (though we’re not ruling it out, either) but the way things are set up now we’ll never know. That’s because individuals often hide behind the veil of corporations. Variances are granted, and property routinely purchased from LLCs without ever requiring the individuals behind those corporations to be identified. So how do we know someone isn’t doing someone else a favor at the public’s expense? The sad truth is, we don’t. A case in point is a recent transaction in East Hampton. A reader suggested we look into it – which is where the frustration comes in. In December of 2011 a small parcel

14 years -- on whether he knows the difference between resident and nonresident beach parking permits; and, get this, that he “just wasn’t paying close attention” to what she said. It has been confirmed by others at the get-together that after Ms. Burke spoke about additional non-tax revenue the Democrat candidates were exploring for the town, including beach parking permits, Fred countered with his view that resident beach parking permits were simply a hidden tax on the residents of East Hampton, as well as a very unpopular, failed idea from the last all-Democrat administration. He spoke with first-hand knowledge as the person who had to issue those permits to a very disgruntled citizenry. When Fred finished his response that was the time for you, Ms. Burke-Gonzalez, or either one of your fellow candidates to stand up and say: “No the reference was not to resident beach parking permits.” Nary a word came out of the mouths of any one of the three Democrat candidates, including Ms. Burke-Gonzalez. Indeed, after I wrote my first letter on this topic a few weeks ago,

of land in Amagansett sold for $340,000. Recently the town voted to purchase it for $585,000. That makes for a tidy little $245,000 profit in less than two years. We’re not suggesting anything untoward occurred, but the owner is an LLC, which means we get little more than the name of an agent or lawyer when trying to find out who is behind the deal. This happens in all five towns. Municipalities that truly want transparency should mandate that corporations doing business with them identify the individuals involved. By the way, every time a town purchases property – including CPF purchases – lots of people get checks. Appraisers. Surveyors. Lawyers. Often times, real estate brokers. It’s a cash cow for insiders who get the contracts. Perhaps there should be a cap on fees charged in connection with municipal purchases? Better still, if preserving what’s left is so important to the community, shouldn’t a lot of people getting rich from the process offer to reduce their fees or (gasp!) donate their time and services?

it was only candidate Larry Cantwell who responded and not Ms. Burke-Gonzalez. The “dignified,” “respectful” and “civil” thing to have done in her letter would have been for Ms. Burke-Gonzalez to have said, “I made a mistake,” or, “I wasn’t clear enough in my presentation.” Instead, she attacks our town clerk, Fred Overton, as incompetent. When Ms. Burke-Gonzalez has served 25 years of elective office in East Hampton Town; and for 48 years of her life has exhibited a spirit of volunteerism dedicated to the East Hampton community, as has Fred Overton, then, and only then, in my view, can she even begin to think about belittling a valued public servant and exemplary volunteer, Fred Overton.

Damage Control Dear Mr. Murphy, How surprised I was by Kathee Burke Gonzalez’s letter claiming she was very clear at the Duck Creek Association about including only non-residents in her advocacy for increased beach fees. If she was as clear as she now claims she was, why didn’t she leap up out of her seat and correct Fred Overton when he opined about what a spectacularly bad idea this was saddling East Hampton residents with this hidden tax? Larry Cantwell and Job Potter who were both in the audience didn’t correct the record either. I know because I was there and Kathee was responding to a question I asked about non-tax revenue. But now, Cantwell and Burke-Gonzalez are desperately trying to do post gaffe damage control by claiming things that never happened. If Burke-Gonzalez made a mistake she needs to admit it and move on. Voters don’t need any more disassembling or cover ups by Democrats, especially given their ethically challenged history when last in office. CAROLE CAMPOLO

The Bad Old Days To The Independent, It would be a good thing to remember, as we get nearer to the East Hampton Town Election, the lock step unanimity of the Democratic Town Boards of the McGintee era when Job Potter was there. It is pertinent for two reasons, the resurrection of Job Potter, a complicit Councilman from that period, and the lemming-like voting records of those town boards. On the incompetent budgets, they voted together, and on buying Keyes Island they voted alike. They all refused to allow the public to vote on that sandbar purchase. They actually discarded a validly subscribed petition for a referendum on that issue. They went to court to defend ill -considered legislation, unanimously, and lost to the Oil Heat Institute by summary judgment. On the “Veggie Law” that limits the rights of homeowners, they all voted together. They cancelled a public hearing on the Coastal Erosion Hazard Act, and then rejected an East Hampton Town Trustee request to discuss this. The bad old McGintee days of unilateral action, were the bad old days of Democratic Party rule. Did anyone on those town boards Continued on page 19.

New Health Center Hudson River Health Care (HRHCare) announced it will begin construction on its newest health center, The Kraus Family Health Center of the Hamptons at Southampton Hospital, in Southampton on October 3. The new health center will offer expanded primary and preventative medical and dental services for the

more than 3,500 residents of Long Island’s East End. “This new facility will be an outstanding addition to our health care system, and will further enhance our ability to provide everyone on the South Fork with comprehensive medical and dental care, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay,” said Anne Kauffman Nolon, MPH, President and CEO of HRHCare. “We would specifically like to thank our partners, Southampton Hospital and Stony Brook University Medical Center, which have been instrumental in this process, and we are excited to build out our unique teaching program together.” The state-of-the-art health center is a dramatic renovation on the campus of Southampton Hospital, and will feature new programs including a family practice, women’s health services and dental services. The facility will also serve as a family residency program, which is a unique collaborative effort between HRHCare, Southampton Hospital and Stony Brook University Medical Center. Planning the development of the new health care center began in June of 2013, and the HRHCare Kraus Family Health Center is expected to be fully operational in early 2014.

Wells Installed One Hamptons House = Ten Homes For Hurricane Victims

Independent / Courtesy FPM Group

In furtherance of the East Hampton Comprehensive Wastewater Management Plan, deep, 150-foot wells are being installed on Springs Fireplace Road near the scavenger waste treatment plant on a county right of way directly to the west of the plant. According to Stephanie Davis, a senior hydrologist with FPM Group, data from wells that were monitored while the scav plant was in operation will be compared to data gleaned from the new wells. The new wells need a little time to settle in, then sampling will commence with data likely available by late October. To create a more comprehensive profile of groundwater in the area, sampling from monitoring wells at the adjacent landfill will also be reviewed.

This week, the folks at Douglas Elliman Real Estate reported that a Water Mill home bequeathed to Habitat for Humanity New York by the late owner Sarah Rubenstein has sold for $1.45 million. Proceeds from the sale, brokered by Douglas Elliman’s Priscilla Garston and Alyra Hoffman, will be used to build ten homes for victims of Hurricane Sandy. According to a release from Douglas Elliman, Habitat for Humanity New York City CEO Neil Hetherington says that all money earned in the sale will go toward rebuilding homes in Staten Island that were devastated by last year’s Hurricane Sandy. The rebuild is part of the 2013 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project that will take place in New York, beginning on October 6, and will involve more than 1000 volunteers renovating homes in Queens and Staten Island. Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, are slated to view the Staten Island homes on Friday, October 11.  “This is an amazing thing that Habitat for Humanity is doing for those still suffering after Hurricane Sandy. I am so proud that Priscilla and Alyra worked to secure the best possible outcome for all parties. Habitat for Humanity is a wonderful organization that does a lot of good for a lot of people and, as a firm, we are honored to have been a part of this transaction,” said Douglas Elliman President & CEO Dottie Herman, who mobilized her own company-wide Hurricane Sandy relief efforts during and after the storm.

New Grocery Store May Boost Business By Emily Toy

Last Thursday morning Robert Gibbs, a Michigan-based economist hired by the Southampton Association, presented an analysis of the village’s retail market to the Southampton Town Board. According to his analysis, the leading categories of supportable r e t a i l g r o w t h a r e g r o c e r y, restaurants, health and personal care services and apparel, shoes and jewelry. The Southampton Association, a nonprofit community organization founded in the 1960s to provide a voice for part time and full time residents in local village affairs, asked Gibbs to look at the benefits and negatives of a grocery store in the village limits as opposed to one located outside the village. Gibbs said that another grocery store in the village would increase business at current retail stores, and even help with business at the other two grocery stores (Waldbaum’s and Schmidt’s Produce) within the village limits. Gibb’s studies find the village can presently support an additional 109,100 square feet of retail and restaurant development, with the possibility of generating over $47.7 million in new sales. Conversely, if a new grocery store were built outside the village limits, it could negatively impact village businesses greatly. Last year, a proposal about the possibility of building a King Kullen plus 15,000 square feet of retail shops on County Road 39 at the intersection of Magee Street was brought to the town board. It is still under consideration by the town board. During Gibbs’ presentation, he said having a third grocery store in the village would attract more people to the village from a larger area. He also added that once customers are in the village, they’re more likely to make other stops for certain things, including stopping at more than one grocer. “This is very common,” he said. “People will go to the grocer and while they are in the village they will make other visits.” According to a background study done by Gibbs Planning Group Inc., “the consumer base is growing in Southampton Village, creating potential for strong and sustainable

retail. Residential population in the area is expanding, as well as the employment base, which means more expenditure to contribute to the retail market.” Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst suggested doing a similar study on the proposed King Kullen for Magee Street and County Road 39 in Tuckahoe.

Get out and vote.” Entries, with proper contact information, are due to the League at education@lwvhamptons.org by Tuesday, October 15. Flyers with all the details are available from media studies teachers at local high schools and in the teen departments of local participating libraries.

After being nominated by Lisa Benincasa last year, Lindsay wrote an essay, and was interviewed by 11 of the scientists at the lab before receiving the honor of an internship. Once a week, Lindsay travels to Cold Spring Harbor and engages in pancreatic cancer research with David Tuveson, M.D., Ph.D. The research they conduct will be shared

Lindsay became involved as part of the “Partners for the Future” program, and is the only student on the East End, of the 12 Long Island students, selected to participate. The Century Club has learned that a four-year project to build a school in Asemkow, Ghana, through the Free The Children program, is nearing completion. Over the past four years, the Century Club has raised approximately $8,000. “This is very exciting to be able to see,” said Debbie Mansir, the club advisor. “The students should be very proud of their efforts and the lasting impact it will have on this community. So proud of them!” To mo rro w i s Se n i o r M o c k I n t e r v i e w D a y.

Fantasy Baseball: One More Chance

Ok, you drafted Bryce Harper in the first round like I told you to. You probably lost like I did, especially if you had Cargo and Tulo from the Rockies, both of whom have been hurt far too much this season. Fear not: there is still one last chance to strike fantasy baseball gold – the playoffs. To win these types of leagues it’s important to remember it’s not about picking the best players, it’s about picking the players who will play the most games. For example, I won a $600 NFL pool last year simply because I had three guys from the Ravens on my team. Why did that matter? Well first of all, they were a Wild Card team, which meant they had to play an extra game just to get into the playoffs. Then, they went to the Super Bowl. The Ravens played one more game than the 49ers, their opponent in the Super Bowl, and at least two more than every other team. The more games a team plays,

the more stats its players rack up. The baseball playoffs begin with a one-game elimination for the wildcards in each league. Then there are best-of-five Division Series, best-of-seven League Championship Series, and then the seven-game World Series between the NL and AL champs. To win, you almost surely must successfully forecast which two teams will make it. Usually, the team with the most dominant pitchers tends to make it deep into the playoffs. Let’s look at the contenders. Right now the American League team with the best record is the Boston Red Sox, but I’m not enamored with their starting pitching. I actually believe Texas, which has been on a wicked losing streak, is a dark horse candidate to win the AL pennant. The Rangers have Yu Darvish (12-9), who I think is one of the best starters in the league. Alexi

Ogando (6-4), who was injured, is back and is pitching well again. Even though Matt Garza (9-5) has gotten roughed up of late, he’s a money-pitcher and will be on his game come the playoffs, and Derek Holland (9-9) is a reliable fourth starter. The Rangers also get their best hitter, Nelson Cruz back for the playoffs. The team to beat in my opinion, though, is Detroit. Max Scherzer (20-3) is going to win the Cy Young Award as the league’s best pitcher, and he may not even be the Tigers’ top starter – Justin Verlander (1311) is as formidable as they come, though he did have an off year. Anibal Sanchez (14-7) will also get some consideration for the Cy Young Award, and Doug Fister (12-9) is a solid #4. That’s baseball’s best rotation. Over in the National League, the Braves have the best record as of this writing but the Dodgers are the team to beat. Clayton Kershaw (149) is the league’s best starter, and Zach Grineke has been nearly as good (14-3). Throw in Hyun-Jin Ryu

(13-6) and Ricky Nolasco (13-10) and it gives LA four hard throwers, with an excellent bullpen behind them. Given the emergence of Yasiel Puig and the return of Matt Kemp, the Dodgers are clearly the team to beat this year. Not so fast, though – St. Louis may not have the starting pitching some of the other contenders do, but they sure can hit. Make St. Louis a long shot pick. When picking your fantasy teams, remember to choose all your players from two teams, one in each league. I will load up on Detroit and LA players, but take a couple flyers pairing Texas with LA and with St. Louis and St. Louis with Detroit. Hint: If two or more teams are tied at the end of the regular season there will be playoff games to determine which team goes on to play in the postseason. Those games are considered regular season games, and that means the stats count for Fantasy purposes. Pick up as many of the players as you can off the waiver wire if you’re locked in a close race. “Skippy Brown” recently won the Draft King Spring Fling contest, besting

Play Bridge A hand very much like this one was played recently at the Water Mill Bridge Club. Using the Blackwood convention, South confidently bid, with three aces, the small slam which was doomed to failure with a club lead. South and North forgot the admonition about not using Blackwood with a losing doubleton. There is an excellent alternative that North could have used to check for first and second round controls

that would have avoided this bad slam bid. When a suit has been agreed upon and a slam seems likely, North can begin the process of bidding first and second rounds controls in the three non-trump suits. After South’s strong three spade bid showing 19+ points, North bids his lowest ranking first round control by bidding 4D which shows the diamond ace but denies a club first round control. South then bids

South now knows that clubs is a dangerous suit since neither he nor his partner  can prevent the defense from two club tricks. The team will not bid 6 spades!

Coast Guard Auxiliary News By Vincent Pica

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

Winterizing: Now Or Later, It Has To Be Done Usually, as soon as I write a column on de-commissioning the boat for the winter season, Indian Summer arrives to bathe us in the last warmth of the year. And here we are. As I write this, it is 75-plus degrees Out East. This is but a reminder that many months of kindly weather are behind us and many months of dark, cold and dreary weather are ahead of us. So, here we go – Indian Summer or not! Even if you hand off your boat to your dock master and say, “See you in the Spring,” there are some tips in here that you will want to be aware of.

ment with, generally, professional and near-constant attention. Even with signs of global-heating all around us, (I think “global warming” sounds too benign), the creeks and coves Out East freeze up for much of the winter. Even Moriches Bay itself has frozen across over the years and I am talking about recent years. The only upside to storing your winterized boat in the water is that you don’t have to pay to haul the boat and return it to the water in the Spring. I still believe that that can be penny-wise and pound-foolish if this watery winter berth isn’t a very controlled environment. Recall that 80 percent of boat’s that do sink do so at the dock. So, let’s focus this column on spending the winter “on the hard.”

“On The Hard” Or In The Water Clearly, there are some basic steps to de-commissioning and one of them is to get the boat safely “onto the hard,” as the old-timers call dry-dock. Storing your winter- Making A List, Checking It Twice ized boat in the water can only be If you are going to hand the boat done in a very controlled environ- over to the dock master and say,

“See you in the Spring,” do so with a written checklist, especially if you intend to do some of the work yourself. As you’ll see, the advice below is not 100 percent extensive. I’d need most of the newspaper to give you a check list that could be used by every boat. (BTW, if you want a copy of the Boat-US/Seaworthy article on winterization, email me below and I will email a copy to you.) Work with your dock master in signing off on what will be done by the yard and, if you desire to be involved, by you. Some ideas/ categories: Change the oil and oil filters Change the lubricant in engine transmission or the outboard lower unit Apply fogging if called for by manufacturer Fill the boat’s fuel tanks completely full Add biocide and/or stabilizing agents to fuel Change the fuel filters Add antifreeze to the engine’s cooling system Add distilled water to batteries, charge completely and disconnect Charge batteries to capacity Before thinking about covering the boat with shrink-wrap or canvas, inspect the hull. Any blisters in the gelcoat? If so, that has to be addressed sooner rather than later as that will lead to water infiltrating the hull, making the boat less sea-worthy. Stress cracks, which often develop at the bow, need professional attention. Just putting a patch over it and sanding, a la the gelcoat blister, won’t fix that one. It’s structural. As to washing and waxing the hull, I opt for cleaning now and waxing in the spring.

IN THE NEWS

Does the boat have a cabin of any kind? Get the “moisture-soakeruppers,” i.e., desiccants, in there. Inexpensive and they inhibit the build-up of moisture that leads to mold. And don’t forget the hatches, closets and lazzarettes. Other than covering the boat, the “mechanical system” is the most obvious place to start. Your mechanical system may only be your gasoline-powered 90-HP Johnson outboard. If so, you are going to flush the engine with fresh water (Attach a garden hose to the intake and let it flush – engine OFF!), “fog” the engine with lubricating oil (be sure the fuel system is disconnected from the engine when you start the process), clean/replace the spark plugs and fuel filter, lube the carburetor and anything else that moves – choke, cam, starter linkage etc. Don’t forget the lower unit (what the prop comes out of). Replace the lube oil. If you open the drain plug and water comes out first (oil floats), you need to replace the seal. Inspect the prop(s). Any dings? Get a professional to look at that. A bad “wheel” can shake your engine apart. That’s your outboard. Did I ask if you had a diesel engine or an I/O? Does the boat have a transmission? In-board water system (sink/ shower)? Air-conditioner? Electronics going to stay aboard or come home with the owner? As you can see, the list is far more extensive than the short list above. But have fun! She’s your boat!
