MY COMEDY ACT

I can’t get myself up to write a new column this week. For those who may be wondering, the “Shlomo Good Luck” charm for the New York Giants is going strong. Shlomo sat on my lap when I watched the game on Thursday night. Final score: Giants 36 - Carolina 7. As his agent, if he brings one more week of good luck for the Giants, I will start negotiating with them for a contract. So here’s a column (slightly re-edited) that I wrote in 2005. It describes a night I dreaded that turned into a high point of my wretched life.

I did a stand-up comedy act at Caroline’s Comedy Club. I have never been so frightened in my life. I was so terrified I wouldn’t allow my wife, the beautiful Judy Licht, or anyone I know to attend the show because if I was going to die I wanted to die alone. I also couldn’t stand the thought of getting a mercy laugh. IndependentAd_July12_Vert.pdf 1 It’s one thing to attempt to write

funny, but it’s another thing to get up on stage with a few hundred strangers staring at you and saying to themselves, “Make me laugh!” The other two corporate types who took part in the show were James Lebenthal, the famous taxfree bond expert, and Carl (I can afford to buy a sense of humor – I’m a billionaire) Ichan. Lebenthal went on first. He’s a lovely man but the crowd was deadpan and quiet during his entire “act.” This scared me even more. Now there was a good chance that I would get up on the stage and either vomit or wet myself out of fear. Then I heard them call my name and I stumbled on to the stage to face hundreds of strangers. I delivered my first line and they laughed. “Hey,” I said to myself, “this isn’t so bad.” Then I talked about advertising. “Was I wrong in proposing a slogan4:33 for PM Feminique vaginal spray: 7/27/12 ‘Feminique is not the best thing in the world — it’s next to the best thing’?” Crude stuff, but they were laughing and applauding.

I have that famous bleeding heart, depressive Sally Struthers. “She whines, ‘Hello, I’m Sally Struthers. For years I’ve ruined your dinner by coming on television for some dubious charity and showing you starving children covered by flies. Now I’m here for an even more serious appeal. Today I’m here to urge you to give to JEWS WITHOUT SECOND HOMES. “You see them on the weekends lunching at Fred’s at Barneys and having dinner at Sette Mezzo. “Jews with no place to go. “During the day wandering among the German and Italian tourists . . . at night going to boring foreign films about pregnant shop girls in India . . . Saturday . . . Sunday — the hours drag. “Mothers who have to admit to their children, ‘I’m sorry your friends are not around this weekend. I know they’re all in the Hamptons. If you’re lonely go downstairs and talk to the doorman.’ “Jews who don’t have that sad confusion of wondering which house they left their heavy coat in. And why are those shoes that would be perfect with this dress in my closet in the Hamptons? “And why are the clothes I want to wear always, always 120 miles away? “Jews who will never spit out their Saturday morning coffee with milk that went sour because it was left on the counter of their second home all week. “Jews who will never know the joy of waving to their friends on a Saturday night at Nick and Toni’s or The Palm. “Jews who will never be able to

Do they not have a second home because they didn’t want to buy at the top of one of the many Hamptons real estate bubbles? Or worse, did they sell their homes before the bubble started and can’t get back in? “Jews who sold their second home on the ocean in Southampton for $900,000 in 1979 – now, when they drive past it, they realize it’s worth $14 million and they burst into tears. “Jews who cannot look at the real estate section of this newspaper without having heart palpitations. “How about those poor Jews who sold because in 1985 their children were under the influence of some sadistic private school coach at Dalton or Spence who called for soccer and hockey practice on Saturday mornings? “Now their kids have graduated and left home and these poor people are reduced to being houseguests of people they frankly can’t stand. “When you go to your second homes this weekend, think of those poor Jews who only have one giant kitchen, just five gorgeous bedrooms. Only one Viking stove. Only one Sub-Zero refrigerator. “I’m Sally Struthers urging you to reach into your pocket and give a donation to JEWS WITHOUT SECOND HOMES.” The applause was incredible. I felt like Sally Fields at the Academy Awards many years ago whose whole acceptance speech was, “You like me. You really like me!” If you wish to comment on “Jerry’s Ink” please send your message to jerry@ dfjp.com.

The Class Of 1962 Remembers East Hampton By Rick Murphy

The president was John F. Kennedy. The movies cost a quarter. Twenty five cents would also get you a hot lunch. When the East Hampton High School Class of 1962 reunites Saturday on the 50th anniversary of their graduation, it will be hard for those attending to believe so much time has gone by. Within months the world would begin turning upside down. Kennedy would be assassinated, with more leaders destined for same fate in the coming years. The Beatles and British Invasion would change the face of music. The Vietnam War would erupt and escalate. The Flower Power generation would change the way we dress, the way we look, and the length of our hair. But back in 1962 East Hampton was

even more beautiful then it is today. The Class of ’62 reunites Saturday at the South Fork Country Club. So far about 60 of the 89 graduates are slated to attend. “It was a wonderful place to grow up,” recalled Linda Leddy, now Linda Streck. “I absolutely loved the summer.” Deanna King (Tikkanen) said the hot songs included “Locomotion,” “Sea Cruise,” “Tell Laura I Love Her,” “When A Man Loves A Woman,” and “Kathy’s Clown.” “We had one movie, and one showing – at 7 PM,” Tikkanen remembered. “Afterwards we’d go to Marmador for an ice cream soda.” Peggy Young grew up on Osborne Lane and started dating her classmate, Dave DiSunno, in their senior year. They’ve been together ever since, and married for 46

years. “We lived at the Marmador,” she said. A ham sandwich was 15 cents. “A sardine sandwich was 20,” Young-DiSunno said reading from a menu. “We’d go after school, buy a five cent bag of chips, and use their ketchup to dip them in. We’d stay for hours.” The place was owned by the King family but Eddie Cangelosi ran it, she said. It was right next door to the movies. The high school was on Newtown Lane, where the middle school is now. “I would get a quarter to buy lunch at school but we’d go to the luncheonette,” Streck said. “A quarter got you a bowl of soup and a coke.” By the way, diet soda hadn’t been invented yet. A date night might be pizza and beer at Sam’s. “We loved Sam’s. The food was good and he really took us under his wing. Another popular spot was the drive-in movie in Bridgehampton, near where King Kullen is now,” Streck said. Tikkanen said once in a while a trip to Hampton Bays and the roller rink would be on the agenda. “Winters were much colder,” Young-DiSunno noted. “We’d go ice skating all winter.” There were two or three delis, a

luncheonette, an ice cream parlor, a news/candy store, a pharmacy, several hardware stores, and other mom and pop stores dotting Newtown Lane and Main Street. “And the stores stayed open all year round,” Streck pointed out. Marilyn Monroe, who was found dead later that year, John Wayne and Frank Sinatra were the big movie stars, and of course, there was Elvis. “I wasn’t much of a Beatles fan,” Leddy said. “Elvis was much more exciting.” The Edwards Theater, which burned down, used to have giant posters advertising the movies. Fans would lobby the manager, asking for the posters after the Continued on Page 31.

Bays Debate Draws Crowd By Kitty Merrill

Even kids, it seems, react to campaign attack ads. Representing the Class of 2013 at the congressional debate hosted by the Hampton Bays Civic Association Monday night at the high school, Jennifer Linares asked candidates, Democratic Congressman Tim Bishop and Republican challenger Randy

Altschuler, why they’re airing negative ads and distributing negative mailers targeting their opponents rather than focusing on their own achievements. Neither really answered, nor did they promise to refrain from continuing the strategy as the campaign continues. Instead both lamented the deplorable state of politics in America. “We all find

ourselves dragged into it,” Bishop offered. A newcomer to the world of politics Altschuler said he was “surprised and disappointed” by the negativity two years ago during his first, unsuccessful campaign against Bishop. A positive campaign would be “terrific,” he said, “But every time you turn on the TV, it’s about Randy Altschuler being an outsourcer.” He noted that he’s taped the only positive television ad airing so far.

Hampton Bays senior Jennifer Linares with congressional candidates congressman Tim Bishop and Randy Altschuler.

High School’s government and economics class comprised a segment of the audience that nearly filled the school auditorium to witness the debate. A significant portion of the attendees were senior citizens. Dr. Bruce King, president of the civic association introduced both candidates at the outset, allowing each a chance to present opening statements. Altschuler spoke of humble beginnings as the son of a single mother. He put himself through school, met his wife in college 20 years ago and has two children aged five and one. The St. James resident said he’s running for congress because the country needs “a new direction” to ensure a positive future for children. Bishop has lived on the South Fork his entire life; he’s the twelfth generation of his family in Southampton and has worked in the district for 40 years. Every job he’s had has offered the same challenge. “What I’ve done every single day of my professional life has been the same, has been to help others,” he said. King posed two questions, relating to Medicare and Medicaid, and military spending, developed by civic association members, to the candidates. Bishop supports efforts to ensure Medicare/ Medicaid programs remain solvent. Altschuler offered what became a sort of refrain throughout the debate: Bishop’s been in office 10 years and hasn’t solved problems with the program. In fact, he said his opponent voted to cut billions from the program. “I’m not part of the problem, Congressman Bishop is,” the challenger emphasized. The cuts, Bishop said on rebuttal, relate to subsidies and overpayments to insurance companies, and don’t affect care for eligible people. Altschuler countered, pointing out that Bishop and Democrats criticize the Republican budget, but have yet to offer any solutions. “I will work across the aisle to solve problems,” he said. “Congressman Bishop’s answer is always ‘The Republicans Continued on Page 31.

Hansom Hills Project Gets Ugly By Rick Murphy

Once again what appeared to be a simple project has become political, as is often the case in East Hampton Town. And, it’s gotten ugly. This time it pits the town, which just so happens is run by a Republican majority, against Suffolk County, which just so happens to be run by a Democratic County Executive, Steve Bellone. The project seemed innocuous enough – to create a sump and improve drainage on a section of Route 114 across from Harness Lane, which hopefully would alleviate a flooding problem that has plagued the neighborhood to the immediate west known as Hansom Hills.

Somewhere along the way, a contractor hired by the town removed topsoil from a farm on Route 114 to create an area where water runoff would gather and create a drainage system to divert the flow. Hansom Hills is anything but hilly – basements there regularly take on water, and the streets often have huge puddles, at times too deep for a small car to ford. What the town didn’t know was that Suffolk County owned the development rights to the farm in question -- and the soil that was removed. “The town never reached out to the county,” said Sarah Lansdale, the Suffolk County Director Of

Planning. “We heard of this action from a third party. “We made a mistake, I get that,” said Theresa Quigley, a Republican town board member who noted the focus should be the people who are affected by the flooding. Both the town and the county acknowledge that initially the two sides expected to come to an amicable solution. Then the county served the town with a Notice of Claim, suggesting the county would sue unless an agreement was reached. Lansdale said the county took the legal step because the town wasn’t negotiating in a timely manner. “I placed a call to the town

supervisor September 10 and I’m still waiting for a return call,” Landsdale said. Bill Wilkinson, the East Hampton Town Supervisor, isn’t a happy camper, either. At a town board meeting last Thursday he lashed out at the county’s threat to sue. “This is crap,” he said more than once. “And the biggest piece of crap is that lawsuit delivered to us. We’ve got basements and pools collapsing and houses being flooded.” Wilkinson and Quigley both harshly criticized Deputy County Supervisor Jon Schneider for including his business card with what they considered a smarmy comment written on it. Schneider is a former top aide to Congressman Tim Bishop. Both are Democrats, and the relationship between the two camps has been somewhat strained since Wilkinson and Quigley publicly announced their support for Randy Altschuler, Bishop’s opponent in 2010. The two are running against each other again this year. Schneider feigned innocence when told the note upset Wilkinson, noting it read, “Best Regards.” “I didn’t let my friend drive off with any topsoil,” Schneider said. The friends would be Keith and Susan Grimes, Wilkinson’s friends and campaign contributors who often do work for the town. “They were the low bidders,” Quigley pointed out. “It was totally done properly.” “The town contracted to have Keith Grimes Inc. remove the soil,” said Town Engineer Tom Talmage, who said it was understood Grimes might sell off the soil. He said the project will cost about $320,000 if the town is allowed to complete it. Former Town Supervisor and current County Legislator Jay Schneiderman has been sucked into the argument as well. Quigley, like Schneiderman has her eye on the supervisor’s seat should Wilkinson not run (or be passed over by the town’s Republican Committee). Quigley said she suspects Schneiderman, “Wants to ride in on his white horse and save the town.” Well, he does. “I said I was willing to go to the County Farmland Committee on behalf of the town,” he said. The town sent in an application and was about to be placed on the farmland committee agenda – but the owner of the property didn’t sign it – the town erroneously had the former owner sign. The back and forths are flying at this point, and amidst the charges and countercharges is the real possibility the county might sue the town and attempt to make it return the soil to the farm minus the clay Continued on Page 32.

Traffic And Taxes, Miller Lanes And Scav Plant By Kitty Merrill

An ordinance they wouldn’t enforce and a facility they may not fund. Members of the East Hampton Town Board broached two atypical notions last Thursday night, as discussion of two ongoing issues – traffic problems on the Miller Lanes and the cost of the town scavenger waste facility – continued. A public hearing on measures designed to provide relief to the Miller Lane neighborhood drew a handful of speakers, most of whom supported the concept of closing off the area, which is used by motorists looking to avoid the village and the busy North Main/ Cedar Streets intersection, to through traffic and trucks. The proposal includes installing extra stop signs in the neighborhood, closing it off to heavy truck traffic as well as through traffic from North Main Street, Cedar Street and Oakview Highway. The hearing notice also included closing off Cooper Lane, Palma Terrace, Sherrill Road and Osborne Lane to through traffic as well. Questioned about the closure of the lanes that feed into Newtown Lane in the village, Councilwoman Sylvia Overby said the goal was to have the rules “match up” with those enacted earlier by East Hampton Village. But the village doesn’t limit through traffic on those four streets. Other board members said they weren’t aware of the inclusion, and seemed inclined towards jettisoning that portion of the proposal. Resident Julia Mead submitted a petition boasting 80 signatures in support of the closures, while neighbors John McCue and Bobbi Sayler complained about drivers who speed and ignore existing stop signs and traffic laws in the neighborhood. All three claimed traffic congestion and scofflaw motorists are a year round problem, a statement that contrasts with prior testimony from area residents who said the problem diminishes significantly immediately after Labor Day. Two speakers expressed opposition to the plan. Beverly Bond worried the move would take a problem that’s

“bad” at the North Main intersection and make it worse, by funneling all traffic to North Main Street. Councilman Dominick Stanzione wondered whether town officials wouldn’t be forced to come up with a plan for the area “if everyone is inconvenienced.” Chris Russo, who served as town highway superintendent from 1990 to 2008, said the board should sit down with truck operators and devise a route, then ban them on all other roads throughout the town. He said that in the past when he’d been asked about banning through traffic, he said he had the ideal solution. Residents could petition for removal from the town highway system. Once the roads are rendered private and not maintained with taxpayer money, residents could, he said, put up gates and guards and moats and alligators if they want. Russo warned that if the board approves the move, town officials will receive “a hundred” requests from other neighborhoods asking for the same special treatment. Suggesting the traffic congestion on the Miller Lanes is no different from problems faced by many other town residents during the summer, he said, “We have too many people and too many cars . . . I don’t like not being able to turn out of my drive way for two months, but I deal with it.” Councilman Peter Van Scoyoc was the only member to express reluctance about embracing the measure, noting that if people are ignoring stop signs and speeding, the violations should be addressed rather than the roads closed. David Buda wondered whether the town could enforce a non- residential traffic ban. Overby and Supervisor Bill Wilkinson both said police would be unlikely to “really” enforce the ban. Instead, the goal is to have a “dilutive” effect, by preventing outof-area drivers from using the roads. The regulation would be a town ordinance, not a state traffic law. From no enforcement to no funding: Last year the town board adopted a budget that called for funding the scavenger waste plant for

just three months. Officials planned to sell the site to a private firm. But when Overby and Van Scoyoc joined the board in January, the pair discovered a slew of questions about the deal, particularly how the environment would be protected, were unanswered. The sale stalled and with no funding in place, the plant’s budget slid into deficit mode. Carol Campolo criticized the pair, and Stanzione, as “irresponsible” for delaying the sale, and for suggesting the town issue bonds to pay for a required clean up at the site. Van Scoyoc emphasized the clean up is not routine maintenance, but a “one time thing” required by the state.

He said that even if a private entity took the plant over, “We’d still have to pay to cover the clean up.” The sole respondent to the town’s request for proposals wasn’t going to undertake the work. When the councilman suggested it would have been more prudent to budget for operational costs, and log a surplus if the sale went through, Wilkinson lost his temper. He said he would never submit a “fake budget” and plans to submit another budget for next year that only funds operation of the plant for three months again.

Eye On Education By Dr. Dominic Annacone

Rescuing Teacher Unions As the 2012-13 school year begins, it’s safe to say the image of teacher unions across the country is at an all time low. High unemployment rates, mortgage failures, government budgets in the red, and other economic calamities have contributed to states and localities blaming teachers unions for being greedy in their negotiations for higher salaries and benefits. Teachers unions were formed because of the dismal status of the teaching profession before formal representation of teachers was established. Not only were salaries

low, there were some ridiculous employment requirements such as limiting the number of times female teachers could “receive gentleman callers” in a given week. Diane Ravitch, NYU Education Professor, recalls that teachers lost their jobs because of their race, political beliefs, and other capricious and arbitrary reasons. Unions came into being to provide legal protection for teachers and also to gain leverage in improving their terms and conditions of employment. When I began teaching, there

were no teacher unions. I remember meeting with school boards and proposing modest salary changes as well as attempting to improve teaching and learning conditions. I had over 30 students in a couple of my early classes in grade school. One year, I even had two nonEnglish speaking students. This was before the ESL laws were established. Teacher unions attempted to improve working conditions for teachers, but at the same time, those improvements were important for addressing the needs of the students. Negotiations in those days amounted to a presentation to the school board and then school boards simply dictated all of the terms and conditions without any compromising allowed. Today the National Education Association representing public

school teachers is the largest professional organization (union) in the country. The NEA works to attain decent salaries and working conditions for teachers. At the same time, its stated mission is to prepare all students in such a manner that they will succeed “in a diverse and independent world.” The problem is that the public image of teachers seems to be weighted more with the purpose of wages and benefits for teachers than for the advancement of students in educational attainment. So I am advancing a proposal to any local teachers union that I believe will make a start in improving the image of teacher unions and teachers while at the same time proving a union’s support for increased instruction. That proposal is that teacher unions should voluntarily increase the length of the school year for children without any increase in their salaries. Our public schools continue the archaic school calendar of 180 days replete with closings during the year for holidays and seasonal vacations and no school sessions during the summer months. This schedule came into being at the turn of the twentieth century to accommodate the agricultural industry by the inclusion of young people in their work force. One of the reasons our students are out-performed on international academic tests is because many school calendars in other industrialized nations are considerably longer. (Japan-243 days, Germany-266+, South Korea-220, Israel-216, Soviet Union-211, Scotland-200, Netherlands-200, etc.) If a teachers union proposed the increase of instructional days, say, to a 200-day calendar, and agreed to perform the additional instruction without any concomitant pay increase, it’s my opinion it would improve the union’s image among the populace. It would be evidence that teachers are committed to making changes that have the potential to advance student progress. I would also argue it would ameliorate the problem teachers face of having to re-teach forgotten concepts and skills by students because of the overly-extended summer vacation period.

Hampton Bays Property Eyed For Housing By Emily Toy

“There’s no such thing as affordable housing on Long Island,” said Rick Wertheim from United Way Long Island Youthbuild. “There’s ‘attainable’ housing and that’s what we need to look for.” Last Thursday, the Southampton Town Board met with Wertheim and representatives from the town’s Housing Authority to discuss the 72-h designated property at 42 Neptune Avenue in Hampton Bays, a potential property for affordable housing. The Housing Authority and Youthbuild have been working together to give housing and employment to the young adults participating in the program. Youthbuild Long Island is a free program that serves low-income young adults ages 18 to 24. “This program provides an opportunity for our kids to move up,” said Richard Blowes, Executive Director of the Authority. “They have to begin somewhere.” Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst added young adults working in the program would be able to be employed and then could get housing. Thursday’s work session found the parties involved unable to decide whether to make the property a rental or a homeownership. “I think there’s a concern amongst the people in Hampton Bays as well as Flanders and Riverside because the properties tend to be worth less than properties further east,” ThroneHolst said. Councilwoman Christine Preston Scalera mentioned how Code Enforcement (which she serves as a liaison to) had many cases this year for overcrowding, maintenance, and more with several properties accommodating rentals. “Unfortunately we’ve been dealing with a lot of unscrupulous landlords, and Hampton Bays definitely has its share,” she said. Blowes assured that if the property was turned into a rental home, there would no Code Enforcement issues or problems with anything owned by the housing authority. Councilwoman Bridget Fleming said, “The reaction, from the people I’ve spoken to, is it should be a home ownership and not a rental.” Funding still needs to be secured from the Housing Authority through the county for the property. If funding is not in place from the Authority, the property will move to and be developed by another agency into affordable housing. “This is a big opportunity to get support,” Blowes said. “We’re dealing with a lot of problems, and I know

these other agencies don’t care. Unless there is a clear, illegal violation, they don’t care about someone’s quality of life.” We r t h e i m d e s c r i b e d h o w Youthbuild and the Housing Authority are working together on programs that are “all next generation projects.” Bonnie Cannon, a member of the Board of Directors for Southampton

Housing Authority, opined the property should be a homeowner home, agreeing with the majority of the town board. “As an agency, we see a need for rentals,” Blowes said, adding how a decision could be made, but not without support from the town board. “I’m confident the Housing

September 26, 2012 15

Authority and Youthbuild can do this and secure the funding,” said Councilman Chris Nuzzi. Throne-Holst said the town board would meet again with the Housing Authority representatives on October 4. She said she was hopeful more research on funding would be attained for discussion. “We can do ownership, we can do rentals,” Cannon said. “You just have to give us some sort of direction.” Emily@indyeastend.com

RICK’S SPACE Taking The Gloves – And The Pounds - Off

If I were a boxer I would have been fighting heavyweights like George Foreman who would flatten me like a Panini (and put me in his grill). That’s because I weighed 209, the top weight class, which is 201 pounds and up. There is no limit, meaning I would have had to fight 300-pound guys. Clearly, that is motivation enough to lose weight. It only took me a couple weeks to get down to the Cruiserweight

Division, which is between 176-200 pounds for fighters. In the old days, before they created this class, most Heavyweights weighed in under 200 – Rocky Marciano, for example. I wouldn’t want to fight him, either, and he’s dead. Clearly, I had to go down to the next weight class. Evander Holyfield, who is very much alive, weighs in at 200 pounds, and I’d have to bite his ear off if I ever got in the ring with him.

When I hit 175 I entered a new boxing class. The greatest Light Heavyweight of all time was Archie Moore, who was still fighting when I was a kid. He looked like he was about 60, and he probably was. But he probably coulda whupped me, even if he wasn’t a contenduh anymore. The great Tommy Hearns, who used to be a Welterweight, swelled up to this weight and still knocked people out with his crushing right hand. No thanks, not for me. So I dropped down to Super Middleweight, which has a maximum weight of 168. Sugar Ray Leonard once fought at this weight. Imagine! Me in the ring with Sugar Ray – I don’t think so. Let’s face it, he’d beat my brains in, and we can’t have that – who would write this column?

So today I stand on the precipice of the Middleweight division: 155-160 pounds. This division has always been considered the perfect blend of power, speed, and skills. Marvin Hagler fought at this weight. His nickname was “Marvelous Marvin” which really doesn’t get across the fact that he would frequently beat his opponents to a bloody pulp. I used to box when I was a kid. I belonged to the Boy’s Club, and pretty much played every sport they had, even fencing and knock hockey. In those days Cassius Clay was still Cassius Clay, and he was my idol. I loved the way he boasted about his ability and wrote demeaning poems about his opponents. I did the same thing – and then the other kids would beat the crap out of me in the ring because they hated me and my big mouth. I was painfully thin then. My Uncle Tom used to say I looked like I came from Biafra. My sister was the same way. My mother used to let us pretend we were camping out and cook hotdogs over the flame on the stove in the hope of putting some meat on our bones. She used to make us sandwiches with the bread crusts cut off, just the way we liked them. She used to pack goodies in our school bags. Nothing worked. Finally my mother, who is a nurse, took us to a doctor who was an expert on nutrition. He examined me, and then my sister. “Why are you so skinny, little girl?” the doctor asked politely. “Because my mother never feeds me,” my sister replied. Luckily, my mother was a Flyweight and didn’t pack the punching power of a Heavyweight, or my sister would still be in a coma. I weighed 133 when I was 30. Put in boxing lingo, I was somewhere between a Featherweight and a Lightweight. The only fights I actually won were against equally scrawny kids. This is the guiding principle I’m using during my drive to lose weight: lose enough and instead of fighting the Mike Tysons you can beat up on the weaklings. The truth is many of these boxing weight classes are artificial. They were created so there could be more champions, and more television revenue. They kept adding new weight classes and new championship belts until there were 25 divisions. Originally, there were only eight: Flyweight (112 pound max), Bantamweight (118), Featherweight (126), Lightweight (135), Welterweight (147), Middleweight (160), Light Heavyweight (175), and Heavyweight (unlimited.) I am now announcing that my ultimate destination will be to fight as a Welterweight. At that time I will also begin calling myself “Sugar Rick Marvelous.”

EDITORIAL

The County Versus The Town Usually Suffolk County works in tandem with its municipalities, and its farm preservation effort is an excellent example. This time, though, something has gone terribly awry. The county is threatening to sue East Hampton Town because, during a project designed to ease flooding, the town inadvertently removed topsoil from a farm the county “owns” – that is, it purchased the development rights to the property, assuring it will always be used for farming (See our story elsewhere in this issue.). There are no winners here. The county is talking about “the precious soil” removed by the town as if it were gold. Let’s put things in perspective – it’s dirt. Then there is the matter of the project itself. We know the houses in Hansom Hills frequently flood. Who is responsible, though? If it is the water running off the farm, a case could be made that Suffolk County should share the cost of diverting it. Should taxpayers have to foot the bill? Wouldn’t a fairer thing be to form a special tax district comprised of the affected homeowners? And what of the developer (or developers) and builders who originally built the houses? Shouldn’t they have known the area was in essence a flood zone? Town officials who acknowledge they made a mistake have managed to alienate county officials who claim to be willing to negotiate a mutually beneficial solution.

Moral Questions

Dear Editor, This is in reply to your September 12 editorial that stated, “The airport belongs to everyone . . . sharing the inconvenience is as good a remedy as any.” In theory you are correct, but the recent adoption of the previously abandoned route over Sag Harbor and Noyac does not provide for the sharing of the noise inconvenience. The East Hampton airport decision to revert to the route is totally political and places the burden of noise pollution primarily on these Southampton residents. If the airport must continue to provide helicopter service for movers and shakers, then access must be shared equally from all directions – north, south, east and west. Also helicopters must be above at least 3500 feet when traveling overland to and from the airport. Otherwise, helicopter service should be eliminated. At present

Dear Rick, No doubt about it, Congressman Bishop announced publicly, at the first debate held in a Christian Church no less, how wonderful lesbian relationships are, as well as the children raised in such relationships. I would hope that every Christian or any other faith for that matter that considers such behavior a sin would remember that on Election Day. Let’s not be hypocrites and say in the teachings of our faith that homosexual behavior is a sin and then when we vote it’s jobs and the economy that are more important. I trust that statements like that of Congressman Bishop will tell all pastors, who claim to preach against the sin of sodomy, what their obligation is concerning their vote.

Since the town is clearly in the wrong – and since the cost of defending a lawsuit will be borne by taxpayers – the prudent thing would be to make nice. As for all the name-calling, crazy charges and countercharges, and smarmy innuendo – let’s keep in mind there are no local elections this year. Save the childish behavior for next year’s Silly Season. Silver’s Blogger When State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was caught using taxpayers’ money to hush up a colleague’s sex scandal, he drew the ire of a number of women’s groups. Enter “Sophia Walker,” a blogger who defends Silver at every turn. According to the New York Post, the she is a he -- Bill Eggler, 48, a longtime legislative writer for Silver. It reminds us anew that bloggers who hide behind phony names are dangerous animals. Locally, the same clowns monopolize blogspots with worthless prattle. Here’s a suggestion: get a life. Walk away from the computer. Legislation is being discussed that would prevent bloggers from posting damaging comments that are not true. Though we are all for freedom of the press, more than a few lives have been ruined by anonymous bloggers who are posting libelous comments without fear of repercussions. Perhaps it is time to hold everyone accountable for what they write on the Internet. of a video that degrades Mohammed. I wonder if Christians are as upset with leaders that support and promote what the Bible calls sinful lifestyles whether the behavior is heterosexual or homosexual. Perhaps Congressman Bishop will approve of adultery and fornication next? Just what kind of moral leaders do we want in America? You know what you get with Congressman Tim Bishop – Sodom and Gomorrah. In contrast to Congressman Bishop, Randy Altschuler stated that he supports marriage between a man and a woman. He also went on to ask “Are you better off now than you were two years ago?” You know the answer to that question every time you fill up your car with gas – the answer is No! You know the answer when you talk to the growing number of unemployed. The answer is No! You know the answer when you pay the bill to heat your home with heating oil. The answer is No! You know the answer when you see the national debt reach the unheard of number of $16 trillion. However, if you don’t care about morality and you think you’re living better, Tim Bishop’s your guy.

Dear Rick, Rick Santorum at a recent Values Voter Summit made clear his values.  He proudly stated that the Conservative movement will never have the elite, smart people on its side, nor colleges and universities; the Church and families is all that is necessary.  It may be a shock to his limited vision of man’s aptitude and that he or she can be smart and also believe in God and cherish family. Santorum needn’t worry about the elite, smart people knocking down his door to be a part of today’s distorted version of the once proud Republican Party and dare intrude upon them, that evil term, intelligence.  What ever did happen to the GOP, the Grand Old Party?  Its Teastruction was and is sad to witness.  Nevertheless it is what it now and certainly not the Party that their one time professed hero President Reagan would be a part of, nor Eisenhower, Teddy Roosevelt or Lincoln.  Charles Joseph CONTINUED ON PAGE 20.

Independent VOICES

Continued from page 19.

“Charlie” Crist Jr.” ex-Governor of Florida said, “I didn’t leave the Republican Party; the Party left me,”  echoed by Jeb Bush who said, “Reagan himself would have been too moderate, too reasonable for today’s GOP” and that there would be no place for either his father nor Reagan.  Hopefully old time/in line Republicans, if there are any left that haven’t been pushed out, will turn out those interlopers responsible for the degeneration of their Party and resurrect that once cerebral proud Grand Old Party. NICHOLAS ZIZELIS

Cautious People  

Dear Mr. Murphy, In order to discuss the economy of Southampton, I’d like to make a couple of startling statements but first I’d like to comment on David Weinstein’s letter (“Stimulating Stimulus,” 9/19/12) in which he argues the greatest expansion in our economy  occurred during President Clinton’s tenure. That expansion occurred in part because of  unethical  practices between government  (mostly by Fannie Mae)  and the financial sector protected by a Federal Reserve and Treasury that deregulated the markets, turned those markets into casinos, and bailed out poorlymanaged firms that gambled badly, all of which contributed to the great recession described by Mr. Weinstein. Recent scandals involving Chase bank and Jon Corzine’s brokerage firm prove little has changed. So it’s no surprise people are cautious.  As for the local economy, in recent months  several articles have  reported that neighborhoods west of the canal are “less sought after” than those east of the canal, therefore, I’m going to  analyze  a couple of  land-use decisions made  west of the canal that I believe have not favored economic development.  One decision allowed affordable housing to be built  right in the middle of horse farm fields and another involved the clear cutting  of two acres of trees  to  build an unnecessary  recharge basin that is unsafe and an eyesore. Sadly, closing the unused basin  might be  a less expensive alternative than remedying the problems created by its excavation.

By Karen Fredericks

What personal steps do you take to benefit the environment? Laurie Posimato I have a compost pile. It cuts down on my garbage. I don’t have to go to the dump as often. I have that wonderful enriched soil to put back into the earth. I live part time in the city and wish I could bring the food from there and bring it for my compost pile here. Annabel Posimato We recycle all our bottles and our plastics and we reuse the plastic bags that we get from the grocery stores. And when we go to the beach or other public places we are very careful not to leave our garbage behind. Pam Busch I’m an organic gardener. I don’t use any chemicals. Any thing we use to deter the deer from eating plants is totally organic. We even plant basil around the plants because that keeps them away. At home I use Tupperware instead of disposable plastic bags. Roseann LoPiccolo I do worry about the environment. If everyone would try just a little bit it would be a much better world. I use reusable bags for groceries. And if I were buying a new car I’d think about the kind of mileage it got and not buy a gas guzzler. You do what you can.

Over 700 handmade pinwheels -- featuring the heartfelt words and artwork of the John M. Marshall Elementary School students -- were “planted” on the school grounds in East Hampton Friday morning as part of the global art installation “Pinwheels for Peace.”

Ross Upper School Students in the Junior Innovation Lab have started their first major project of the year, designing a robot that can solve senior citizen problems, for the FIRST Lego League competition. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) introduces students to the world of science and technology. The robotics competition, which will be held early next year, measures the team’s ability to design and construct a robot, as well as come up with a problem and its solution. It also evaluates the students’ ability to work as a team and good sportsmanship.  

Ross Lower School On September 7, the older students at Ross Lower School were paired with their younger classmates for the first Buddies Day this school year. Throughout the year, buddies get together to work on art projects, play games, and participate in service initiatives. The program helps the School’s youngest population forge lasting friendships with their slightly older mentors while providing the older students with an opportunity to serve as positive role models. For the first time, fifth grade students are attending the Lower School, making them the campus elders others can look up to. They have been paired with first grade for the year. Fourth grade students are working with kindergarteners; third graders, divided into two sections, are working with prekindergarten and nursery students; and second graders are paired with pre-nursery students. Last week, all of the buddies spent time enjoying classroom activities that highlighted their common interests, such as building blocks, drawing, and playing games. Pre-kindergartners explored the coastline and gathered specimens for their saltwater tank during

That’s “layer upon layer upon layer of bureaucracy,” he informed. “The Pentagon is the largest business in the world and it needs to be better managed.” Select members of the local media were next up with questions. The pair was asked if they have ever deviated from their party’s beliefs and voted against their interests. Both were able to cite examples of divergent philosophies. Asked to weigh in on whether the proposed rehabilitation of Dune Road should be a priority, Altschuler said it’s important for government to invest in infrastructure. Bishop pointed out, however, that because Dune Road isn’t a federal road, in the absence of a federal earmark, its improvement would have to be funded by the town, state and county. He agreed the scope of the project demands federal dollars, but the current moratorium on earmarks in Washington prevents a federal contribution. Lacking a comprehensive immigration plan, are there piecemeal solutions that could offer relief? the candidates were asked. “Yes, there are things that can be done,” Bishop said, pointing to the newly adopted policy that helps children of immigrants to

Some of the boys ended up going off to war in Vietnam. The summer folks came Memorial Day and left Labor Day. The drinking age was 18, and pizza and beer was an acceptable date.

The incumbent chastised Altschuler for issuing a “vicious” release calling the new program “a backdoor amnesty.” The congressman said he’s also worked to help reform the visa programs for agricultural workers and seasonal employees in the hospitality industry. Altschuler’s comments regarding immigration were interrupted twice by applause. He claimed to feel compassion for children in the country through no fault of their own, but also noted granting “whatever you call it” to undocumented immigrants isn’t fair to those who spend years going through the system legally. He said he would work on the issue if elected “I won’t just talk about it.” After the congressman listed an array of efforts he’s made towards immigration reform, the challenger again said, “Congressman Bishop has been in office for 10 years and this problem has not gotten fixed ... It isn’t about trying and effort, it’s about results.” Asked where they see the country, both politically and socially in regard to immigration 10 years from now, Altschuler said, “It depends on who our congressman is,” while Bishop said he wants to solve a problem “with no easy answers” well before 10 years is up. “I don’t think it’s true, that every single problem this country in the last 10 years can be laid at my feet,“ Bishop said when the time came for concluding remarks. Speaking of a track record of forming partnerships, he said, “Congress production took place on Labor Day weekend.” 1962 – “The Incredible Hulk’ was released – the comic book, not the movie.

After high school Leddy went off to New York, attended the Fashion Institute of Technology, and went to work at Saks Fifth Avenue. Eight years after leaving she moved back to East Hampton for good. What happened? “I met a lifeguard on Main Beach.” Then she related something that can only happen in a small town. “That’s where my father met my mother.”

to go around in Washington on both sides of the aisle, he said. Like his opponent, Altschuler spoke of the need for building consensus, but he reported that Bishop’s voting record shows he sided with his own party over 90 percent of the time. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Arrest Sex Offender

Robert L. Liguori, a registered Level 2 Sex Offender, was charged September 18 with four counts of felony unlawful surveillance, and three counts of misdemeanor attempted surveillance, following a search of his home in Mastic Beach. Southampton Village Police say the arrest stems from an investigation that began last July. On July 18 Liguori, a freelance artist and photographer, allegedly put a live video camera in a dressing room during a swimsuit fashion show at a village venue. The goal, apparently, was catching shots of the women as they disrobed. Following arraignment Liguori was remanded to the county lockup in lieu of $32,000 bail. K.M.

Then there is the matter of the farm. Quigley said the area where

S o u t h a m p t o n To w n a n d Suffolk County Special Victims Unit Detectives worked with the Department of Social Services to institute a more rigid and regular placement of the homeless sex offenders in all three of the DSS shelters. That meant the sex offenders’ actual addresses were reported. Last June the Westhampton DSS trailer that once housed eight homeless sex offenders was replaced with a larger trailer that accommodates up to 18 individuals. In effect, the move increased the sex offender population in the Town of Southampton by another 10 persons. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Babylon and Hampton Bays stamped themselves as the teams to beat in Suffolk’s Division IV with overwhelming victories last week. Babylon crushed the combined North Fork team 38-0 Friday. If truth be told Mattituck/Greenport/Southold/ Shelter Island, playing on the road, did a reasonably good job of keeping the Panthers potent offense in check. But the Panthers play hard on both sides of the ball. Jake Carlock was responsible for the first two scores of the game, both coming on defense. His 26-yard interception return early in the first quarter opened the scoring, and a 41yard punt return minutes later made it a 14-0 affair. From that point on it was simply a matter of pounding the ball and pouncing on the Tuckers mishaps. Before the first stanza had mercifully concluded, Babylon had a 38-0 lead and called off the dogs. Alec Zamek also scored on an interception return, and grabbed a

10-yard TD pass from the quarterback Nick Santorelli to boot. Frank Sierra had 42 yards on 12 rushing attempts for Mattituck (1-2). Babylon (3-0) travels to Mount Sinai Saturday for a 2 PM tiff; The North Forkers play at Mercy at 2 PM the same day. Babylon the team to beat? The Hampton Bays Baymen beg to differ. They took apart Bayport/Blue Point Friday on their home field to run their record to 3-0. As was the case with Babylon, the locals used a strong defense and special teams play to pull away. Devin Havens recovered a fumble in the end zone for one score and Trey Kennedy had an 87-yard kickoff return; Cody Nolan also scored for the winners. Kennedy led a punishing ground attack that accounted for 199 yards with 89 on 16 carries good for two touchdowns. Taylor Catz had 50 in only six attempts. Hampton Bays plays at Southampton at 9 AM Saturday. In Division III action Westhampton traveled to Bellport Saturday and came home with a 34-14 victory. Credit Brian Corrigan, who rushed

Literally thousands of people turned out for Homecoming, and events included the inaugural class of the high school’s Hall of Fame, a parade, a bonfire, and oh yeah, a football game. It wasn’t any ordinary game, though – the rival, Southampton, used to be a staple on the East Hampton schedule before the Bonackers moved into another league. In fact, the two teams used to compete for the Hampton Cup before the rivalry went dormant. Once the game began, though, East Hampton made sure to drain most of the suspense quickly en route to a 42-7 thumping, the team’s first victory in two years.

MindedSports By Pete Mundo

Yankees Lack Dynasty Qualities The typical sports dynasty is revered by its fans, despised by its opponents, but respected by most everyone. Certainly the Patriots of the past decade, the 90s’ Chicago Bulls, and today’s Miami Heat all fit that bill. The New York Yankees are sports’ quintessential dynasty. The Yankee teams of the late 90s and early 2000’s stirred plenty of jealousy. But they also commanded an enormous amount of respect and admiration. The behavior of this current Yankee

team shows time and again why they will likely never be included in the discussion of great Yankee teams. Just this past weekend utility infielder Eric Chavez blasted his former team, the Oakland Athletics. Chavez was bothered by the A’s bench celebration after home runs in the 13th inning. He called the actions “high schoolish and “pretty unprofessional.” “I thought it was distasteful,” Chavez said. “That’s not cool. That’s not how you play the game. I am all

for having fun, but that crossed the line. It is all about being humble.” Eric Chavez is teammates with Nick Swisher, Joba Chamberlin and Rafael Soriano. “Humble” doesn’t describe any of them. Soriano untucks his shirt immediately after each save. Joba fist pumps at the end of each inning, as if he just recorded the final out of a playoff game. And Nick Swisher seems to rub every non-Yankee player and fan the wrong way. Chavez will have a tough time finding anyone outside his locker room to be sympathetic. Two weeks ago Mark Teixiera complained following a loss to the Orioles. Teixiera was called out on a grounder, which would have scored a run and tied the game in the top of the ninth inning. After the game Teixiera commented, “Sometimes, you wonder if the umpires just want to get out of there. They don’t want

you to make a comeback; they want to go home. Those were terrible calls.” Lost in that accusatory statement was the fact that Teixiera slid head first into first base, despite all the research that show it slows a runner down. Also, there was no guarantee that a Yankee team that had lost four of its last of six games would come back to win. But don’t worry, catcher Russell Martin had his teammate’s back, “I didn’t really feel like we lost the game. I feel like we got cheated out of it.” What about the home run call resulting from 12-year-old Jeffrey Maier reaching down and snagging Derek Jeter’s fly ball in the 1996 ALCS? This resulted in a Yankee run and eventual win. How about Joe Mauer’s phantom foul-ball in Game 2 of the 2009 ALDS? Mauer’s fly ball to left field was fair, but was called foul. Had the correct call been made, Mauer would have been on second base with no outs and the game tied at 3 in the top of the 11th. Ironically, the Yankees won the game on a Teixiera walk-off home run. Do these favorable Yankee calls qualify as umpires cheating the other team and wanting to go home? The late 90s’ Yankees didn’t act like this. They let their performance speak for itself. Revere them or despise them, they were a classy group. With Mariano Rivera out for the season, and Andy Pettitte slowly working his way back, Derek Jeter must look around and wonder where the organization’s class has gone. As we enter the final week of the season, let’s see if this current crop of pinstripes can channel their predecessors, clinch the division and make a deep playoff run, while earning the respect that a champion commands.

Fishing Report Shinnecock Bay/Inlet/Ocean The bass bite has starting turning on with the moving of the mullet from the bays. Anglers drifting live baits in the inlet have done well with fish to 30 pounds making it to our scales this week. Most fish are around the 15 pound range. Those who chose to clam chum over at the bridge picked away at fish at just keeper size. The albies are making their showing as well, deadly dicks and small flies will give you a good shot at these speedsters. Big blues are still lurking around the inlet looking to feast on whatever live bait drifts by. Plenty of seabass are still harassing  baits but some are approaching the 13-inch mark lately. Fluke have been a tough find, Some fish still in the bay and  occasional

trophy fish is taken out on the reef while drifting for sea bass. 

Peconic Bay & Points East     The porgies are all over the Peconics again -- big ones, too. The rock and up around Jessup’s have been the best places.  Blues are at these spots, too, along with  some blowfish mixing in.

The mullet are moving out of the bays and the bass are starting to find them. Poppers and swimmers in blues and white will do best.

Coast Guard Auxiliary News By Vincent Pica

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

Safety At Sea: Your Radio – Shot-Gun Or Rifle?

Last week, we talked about power (watts) and distance (height.) You want to have a lot of both, especially if you are the one sending the may-day. But as the song goes, “Is that all there is – Is that all there is . . . ?” As always, no.

Give Me Gain! If you’ve ever bought an antenna, it notes how many “dB’s”(decibels) of “gain” it has. This is a very important element in selecting an antenna. Without a good antenna, your radio isn’t much better than a paperweight. Gain, for the private boater, comes usually in three “sizes” – 3dBs, 6dBs and 9dBs. But what is it? Gain is simply the measure of how focused the antenna is in taking the signal from the radio and, at a given wattage, shaping the rifle bullet of energy that it sends to the horizon. The higher the dBs, the more focused the beam of energy – the sharper the “rifle bullet” rather than the “buckshot” of a shotgun. And greater focus, going back to the last column on radios, leads to greater distance and greater effective

power, meaning more of the wattage gets turned into distance over the water, as you send out your may-day. Sometimes. . . Let’s go back to the fire-arm analogy. If you’ve ever gone hunting, you know you hunt for birds with a shotgun. Why? Because the birds are all over the sky and if you have to hit one bird with one bullet, you had better be a pretty darn good rifleman. That “spread” of buck-shot comes at a cost – power/distance. It will take down a duck, but not a roe buck. For the power to take down a deer, you need to penetrate a highly muscled animal of several hundred pounds and hit a vital place. For that, you need focused power – a rifle. Oddly, radio gain is just like that.

All The Power Let’s think mathematically for a moment. 10 x 10 = 100, as does 50 x 2. If that were real estate, no one would want a living room that was 50 x 2, even if it was the same size in square feet as someone whose living room was 10 x 10. Gain is all about that. High gain

creates a focused beam – like the 50 x 2 living room. Lower gain creates the wider footprint – like the 10 x 10 living room. All the power coming out of the radio has to go somewhere (We’ll leave “minor lobes” for the radio-philes for another day) and that is why, in this example, both examples result in 100. If 50 is the distance, that is better than 10, for sure. Unless, like a shotgun, you need spread. Then 10 is better than 2. Like when the boat is rocking . . . as the boat rises to the crest of a wave, a high gain (50 x 2) antenna is going to send that radio beam into outer space as if it were shot out of a rifle. And when the boat is on the way down the wave, it is firing the radio beam into the back of the wave ahead of it. In this scenario, high gain works against you, since the boat has to be just at the crest of the wave, essentially parallel to sea level, for that radio beam to shoot out straight ahead and hopefully hit something – like a USCG radio tower or another boat’s antenna. Now, if the gain were lower, instead of a rifle shot, you are getting a spread. Even when the boat is pointing into outer space, some part of that radio beam is being “shot-gunned” straight across the wave tops. In the simplistic but illustrative example above, it is only going 10

IN THE NEWS

units of distance over the water, instead of 50. But, even when the boat is plowing down the wave into the trough, some of that signal is getting out, rather than being beamed into the back of the wave ahead, since the gain (rifle vs shot-gun) is lower. So, what to choose? Most skippers go with 6dB as that is the mid-point between distance (9dB) and spread (3dB). For those skippers with enough real estate and moola, two radios and two antennas give them the optimum result. They use a 3-dB (or 6-dB) for the inside (lower) helm where they drive the boat in heavy weather and 9-dB for the upper or outside helm when the seas are flat. Lastly, where should you put the radio itself? As far from your compass as possible. Why? The speaker has a big magnet in it. If the compass “sees” that, it will point to it and think it is the North Pole (magnetic.) In any event, once you have installed your radio, develop a “deviation table” for your boat’s compass so you know how to adjust for readings under way. What’s a deviation table and how do you create one? That’s a lesson for another day. BTW, if you are interested in being part of USCG Forces, email me at JoinUSCGAux@ aol.com or go directly to the D1SR Human Resources Department, which is in charge of new members matters, at DSO-HR and we will help you “get in this thing.”
