Dark Days Got You Down? You Could Be SAD By Kitty Merrill

It’s dark when you leave for work in the morning. It’s dark when you go home at the end of the day. You’re irritable, you’re tired. Coworkers, family members, and friends work your last nerve. You oversleep regularly and your body feels leaden. You want carbs – lots of carbs – and begin to gain weight. Sound familiar? Yo u m i g h t h a v e S e a s o n a l Affective Disorder, aptly acronymed SAD. In his most recent program, available on the hospital’s YouTube channel, Southampton Hospital President and CEO Bob Chaloner discussed SAD with Dr. Paul Garson, a psychiatrist with Southampton Hospital’s Meeting House Lane Medical Practice. A board certified psychiatrist and Sag Harbor resident, Dr. Garson practiced at St. Francis Hospital and Jersey City Medical Center before moving to the East End. He worked at Eastern Long Island Hospital prior to making his way to Southampton. SAD wasn’t given much attention years ago. People thought the “winter blues” were just part of the average life cycle, Dr. Garson explained.

In recent years, symptoms and potential treatments have been identified. An exact cause, however, has yet to be named. While the causes of SAD are unknown several factors could contribute. According to the website mayoclinic.org, seasonal changes, especially the reduction of sunlight, affect your biological clock, levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin and the hormone melatonin. Changes to all three can have an impact on sleep, energy, and mood. The decrease in sunlight can lead to feelings of depression. Dr. Garson noted that cases near the equator are practically unheard of, while the further north one travels, the more prominent SAD becomes. As with other kinds of depression, the symptoms of SAD can worsen if left untreated. SAD can be an offshoot of a major depressive syndrome, a subset of an underlying depression, or a stand alone disorder. Only your doctor can rule out for sure whether SAD is related to another problem. If it’s not, treatment can be as simple as going outside and getting some sun. You could take a trip to the tropics, sure, but Dr. Garson

said bundling up and heading outdoors for an hour or so can be just as effective as a trip to Florida. He cautioned, however, that any treatment of the disorder can take as long as two weeks to fully kick-in. One walk in the snow isn’t going to cut it, but even going outdoors on a cloudy day can help. If going outdoors is prohibitive, some SAD patients turn to special light therapy boxes, also known as phototherapy boxes. Unlike regular lamps, the light therapy box mimics outdoor UV light. Although severe cases

may require treatment with antidepressant medication, non medical treatments like the light box, or the supplement melatonin can help. Dr. Garson suggests exercise and stress reduction techniques such as meditation as a starting point. It’s key for SAD sufferers to realize it’s reversible, the doctor said. “If a person takes control over their symptoms, either with exercise or meditation or yoga, they get the feeling of self worth and strength . . . and that helps them through the dark days.”

Rising One By One By Camila Tucci

One in three women on the planet will be personally dealing with rape and/or violence in her lifetime. This statistic is the basis of One Billion Rising, a global event that raises awareness about domestic violence, sexual violence, fear proliferation, gender rights, and inequality. The idea is that of the three and a half billion women in the world, one billion have been affected by rape or other violence. That one billion is not left unheard especially on V-Day, February 14. The 5th annual One Billion Rising for the Retreat took place Sunday at Guild Hall in East Hampton. Community members used song, performance, and the spoken words to express their feelings about women’s rights. Kate Mueth, the artistic director of the Neo-Political Cowgirls, produced the event along with members of the Retreat, a local shelter for families who have endured domestic violence. Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues (1996) was the true beginning of the movement, which has now reached every corner of the earth. Ensler’s groundbreaking political theater is a compilation of monologues dealing with the feminine experience. Topics such as sex, menstruation, love, rape, and birth are used to bolster the recurring theme that the vagina is not just a body part but a tool of empowerment and can help form one’s sense of individuality. The name of the play alone caught people’s attention and the show itself kept audiences thinking. After receiving many awards, the play became the stepping stone for a global movement, One Billion Rising. Ensler started One Billion Rising as a way to celebrate women’s rights and their own experience and to make people aware of the inequality that lives all around us. Minerva Perez, executive director of Organización Latino-Americana of Eastern Long Island, spoke to the crowd at One Billion Rising for the Retreat in East Hampton. “The focus is that we rise. I look at this as an example of all of us rising to strengthen the voices of women and girls and acknowledge the supportive and caring voices of men.” A teacher from East Hampton High School, Eva Iacono, read a poem with one of her students, Lina Angel. The poem was written by Rigoberta Menchu, a political activist from Guatemala. Menchu won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1992 for her work promoting indigenous rights during the Guatemalan Civil

War. “We must be aware that the indigenous people have rights. You could even connect it to the Dakota Access pipeline. On top of it being relevant to today, Rigoberta Menchu is a woman who is fighting for equal rights. She is from the same area that many of my students are from. It shows that women can win a Nobel Peace Prize no matter your situation,” Iacono said. One Billion Rising underscored the message: It doesn’t matter if you’re a woman, man, or even genderless, equal rights is something that should be important to all. Be the change you want to see and don’t back down when asked if you’re a feminist. Do you believe

www.indyeastend.com

in equal rights? Then yes you are a feminist. As Kate Mueth put it, “Some lives matter more and that’s not good enough.”

The movement began in 2012 and celebrated its birth with 5000 organizations from 160 countries. By 2015, 200 countries were involved in the rise.

Body Tech And Exhale By Nicole Teitler

When the bitter cold rolls around, it’s difficult to find the motivation to work out, let alone step outside. With fitness trends always changing I wanted to try out two locations to see what the options are when my car doesn’t decide to freeze over. I couldn’t have picked more polar opposite fitness studios. Body Tech is one of the oldest fitness establishments in The Hamptons, originally opening its doors in 1986. Upon graduating from Lock Haven University in Pennsylvania, owner Mike Bahel started out on the East End as a personal trainer in 1990 for Body Tech and since then acquired the Amagansett location back in 2000, then the Montauk location in 2006. “As far as our membership base, it’s really never changed. Back then it was maybe five fitness establishments total. Now there’s fifty. It just shows how many people are working out and you think you won’t make it but there’s just more people,” Bahel explained. As a standard gym with dual locations, Body Tech is equipped

with strength machines, free weights, an outdoor space, and five personal trainers available, making it a perfect go-to for those ready to work out. Memberships go for $449 for the year but join now through Memorial Day and pay $199, or now through Labor Day is only $299. There’s also a monthly option for $65. “I’ve been coming here for sixteen years. I like coming here and I like working out,” Richard Goldberg expressed enthusiastically, as visitors readied to work out. Another woman in the background remembered watching the O.J. Simpson trial from the treadmill on the sole TV at the time. One of the many things this establishment has going for it is it’s loyalty, and that speaks volumes. The space has a relaxing vibe. There is nothing complicated about the machines, and there is all the key equipment needed for a decent workout and three levels of dedicated space. A top level for stretching, main level for cardio and downstairs for free weights. The best part is the lack of overcrowding. Depending on timing, both of day

New Tool For Lyme Researchers By Rick Murphy

A San Francisco Foundation has developed a program that will allow researchers in different geographical areas to compare data gathered from Lyme Disease sufferers. Long Island is not the only hotbed for Lyme Disease. The San Francisco Bay area and many states in the Midwest have seen cases spike in recent years. The Bay Area Lyme Foundation, a national organization funding research to make Lyme Disease easy to diagnose and simple to cure, developed a Lyme Disease Biobank, which allows doctors and researchers to compare blood and urine samples from people with

acute Lyme Disease from multiple regions. “One of the biggest barriers to research is a lack of samples from people confirmed to have Lyme Disease - our program aims to alleviate this,” said Liz Horn, PhD, MBI, a principal investigator for the Lyme Disease Biobank. “Our efforts will unlock a huge bottleneck and make it possible for more scientists to conduct desperately needed research in Lyme Disease.” Researchers hope the new tool will help accelerate medical breakthroughs in the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of Lyme Disease as well as co-infections. Because the bacterial strains which cause many tick-borne

diseases vary from region to region, the Biobank offers researchers the opportunity to explore potential new diagnostics against a range of bacterial strains. Samples from East Hampton are among those included in the Biobank. Lyme Disease, thought two decades ago to be a problem primarily limited to the Northeast corridor of Long Island and Southern New England, has become one of the most infectious diseases in the country. It is a potentially debilitating infection caused by bacteria transmitted through the bite of an infected tick. In worstcase scenarios it can affect the brain and the heart but if diagnosed early

most cases of Lyme Disease can be effectively treated. However, Lyme is commonly misdiagnosed due to lack of awareness and unreliable diagnostic tests. There are about 329,000 new cases of Lyme Disease each year, according to statistics released in 2015 by the CDC. As a result of the difficulty in diagnosing and treating Lyme Disease, as many as one million Americans may be suffering from the impact of its debilitating long-term symptoms and complications, according to Bay Area Lyme Foundation estimates. The Bay Area Lyme Foundation, a national organization committed to making Lyme Disease easy to diagnose and simple to cure, is the leading public not-for-profit sponsor of Lyme Disease research in the US.

On Friday two were so charged and taken into custody after being pulled over and searched in the Riverside section. One of them Ihor Yantukhovskyy, of Riverhead, 51, was hit with a felony count of DWI. Police said he was pulled over on a traffic violation and it was determined he had been drinking excessively. The next night a Southold man was pulled over on County Road 105 in Flanders and charged with a felony count of criminal possession of marijuana. Police said David Torrento, 21, was driving with a suspended license when he was pulled over. The pot was found in the vehicle.

Speeding Up The ‘Back Roads’ By Rick Murphy

For the longest time real locals kept the little secret to themselves – the so-called Back Roads, aka the Scuttlehole Bypass. It was their way of getting around The Hamptons when traffic choked the major thoroughfare. Almost three decades ago, when a local publication published the route, there was an outcry.

Nowadays, though, with so many vehicles equipped with GPS, the short cut no longer saves time – it’s wall-to-wall cars, not only coming east on Fridays and going back west on Sunday, but every morning and evening as the trade traffic flows in and out of the East End. Headed west, Sag Harborites can pick up Scuttlehole Road from the Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor

Turnpike and take it to Montauk Highway in Watermill. Or, a motorist can opt to go further west by bearing right on Head of Pond Road, which segues onto Flying Point Road, or following it even further west where Fresh Pond Road runs into the David White’s Lane/CR 39 intersection. Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman is exploring a

way to speed up the traffic that far too often slows to a crawl. Under consideration are two roundabout-type structures, both on the Fresh Pond/Deerfield Road corridor, where Fresh Pond, manages to intersect Deerfield twice near the Halsey Farm Nursery and about 100 yards north of it.

Manhattan DA May Open Kilgallen Case

By Rick Murphy

The long overdue criminal investigation into the possible murder of columnist and TV personality Dorothy Kilgallen may begin shortly. The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case after a formal request made by Mark Shaw. Shaw recently released The Reporter Who Knew Too Much a researched and dramatic book that follows the events leading up to Kilgallen’s mysterious death 51 years ago. The Independent did a two-part series (Visit www.indyeastend.com archives for our November 9 and 16,

2016 editions) about Kilgallen, who was about to release a book that she claimed would identify the real killer or killers of President John F. Kennedy. Instead, the manuscript disappeared and she was found dead in her Manhattan apartment, a victim of a drug overdose. Joan Vollero, a spokeswoman for the Manhattan DA confirmed that Shaw’s request was received and that a staffer was assigned to read his book. Chris Broich, a former Southampton Village Sergeant who runs his own security business, Fortress Security, welcomed the news. His father John was a chemist for the Manhattan Medical Examiner at the time Kilgallen was found dead. “They asked my father to do some tests a year or two later . . . he found a second barbiturate, Nembutal, that hadn’t been prescribed to her.” When taken with her prescription pills and alcohol, the results can prove fatal, and were in the Kilgallen case, John Broich determined. He suspected foul play and said so. Curiously, the Brooklyn Medical Examiner was called when Kilgallen was found and not the Manhattan Office. “Everyone knew the Mafia controlled that office,” Chris Broich said. “I welcomed the news that the

NYC DA’s office is investigating Dorothy’s death and I trust it will thoroughly do so by securing documents of interest and interviewing several of the people still alive who know what happened so many years ago,” Shaw said. “Whether it is Dorothy Kilgallen or Dorothy Doe, victims have rights when there is a homicide and I look forward to working with the DA’s office to get Dorothy the justice she was denied.” Kilgallen died on November 8, 1965. By that time she was the most famous journalist in America, having secured the only personto-person private interview with Jack Ruby, who was accused of murdering Kennedy’s alleged assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. Ruby was subsequently found dead in his prison cell. John Broich, a Southampton native, confronted his superior when he realized the Manhattan ME’s office had overlooked important details, but he was told by a superior to “keep it under your hat.” The elder Broich, who is now deceased, was spooked enough to quit his job and move to Long Island. He left a videotape about the matter, outlining his concerns. “There was no evidence that Kilgallen was a drug abuser,” Shaw said

Saturday. “Despite the odd death scene and heavy doses, there was no investigation.” Former Manhattan ME toxicologist Dr. Stephen Goldner told Shaw the Mafia did indeed control the Brooklyn ME’s Office. Weeks before her death, Shaw learned, Kilgallen bought a gun for self-protection and planned a second trip to New Orleans to investigate Mafia don Carlos Marcello. “If the wrong people knew what I know about the JFK assassination, it would cost me my life,” she confided to hairdresser Charles Simpson, one of several witnesses who gave videotaped interviews unearthed by Shaw.

Former Southampton Principal Replaced

By Rick Murphy

The Southampton School District may need to better evaluate how it chooses its administrators. Just a year removed from scandals involving two of them, a third who worked in the district as recently as last year is in the news — for all the wrong reasons. A Glen Cove elementary school principal, Julio V. Delgado, has been abruptly replaced after 3 1/2 years on the job. He was apparently employed in Southampton as recently as last year. Glen Cove School officials, citing privacy guidelines, refused to discuss the reasons for his termination but a letter sent to district residents alluded to “serious personal problems” Delgado had. According to published reports cash collected by Delgado went missing. In one case Delgado reported he had lost $200 in donations collected to help the poor. Glen Cove City Police said the principal had returned to the district another $800 collected last year for a kindergarten class trip after parents complained that the money went missing. Police said the probe followed parents’ demands that the district account for the kindergarten trip money, after parents were asked to contribute to another trip.

It creates gridlock,” Schneiderman pointed out. The supervisor stressed that

REAL ESTATE

there “is no silver bullet” to alleviate traffic. But measures to improve the flow on the major roads would decrease the number of motorists who bleed onto the back roads. Towards that end, Schneiderman said it would make sense to make the light on Main Street in Watermill a blinking light, at least some of the time. The Fresh Pond Road/Deerfield Road intersections each have stop signs in all directions. Schneiderman would like the town to hire a consulting engineer to study the effects of two modified roundabouts in place of the stop signs. He said he’d like to at least do something before

East Hampton Attorney Arrested

By Rick Murphy

disregard for the law, compounded by the defendant’s violating his oath as an attorney,� District Attorney Thomas Spota said in a statement last Wednesday evening. Lynch was charged by the East Hampton Village Police Department with three counts of grand larceny in the second degree, one count of grand larceny in the third degree, two counts of identity theft in the first degree, and one count of unlawful possession of personal identification information. After turning himself in he was arraigned in East Hampton Town

An East Hampton lawyer is charged with grand larceny, accused by the Suffolk County District Attorney of diverting $500,000 from the estate of an Orient woman, Helen Chalmers. Kyle Lynch, 42, whose law license has since been suspended, worked locally for Bainton Lynch LLP. Lynch is also accused of using the identity of a former colleague in the firm, Carl Irace, to secure a line of credit for $50,000. “These alleged criminal acts are serious and display a pattern of







Justice Court, where bail was set at $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond Lynch represented Chalmers, who died in 2013 from injuries suffered from a fall inside at her Ryder Farm Lane home. Lynch, in an article in Suffolk Times in July 2014 said Chalmers was born in Montreal, and had no close relatives locally. Lynch was identified as the executor of her will, which he said stipulated monetary gifts be made from her estate to various local charities.

The Southampton School District has seen success with its first-ever Regents examination intervention program, with more than half of the enrolled students, who had struggled with the tests in the past, scoring passing grades, according to district officials. Julio Delgado served as the Southampton School District’s coordinator of student achievement as recently as last year, while he was apparently still employed in Glen Cove. The school superintendent at the time, Scott Farina, reached a financial settlement with the district after being embroiled in controversy that included a rumor that a nude picture of him was circulated around the school, an allegation his attorney strongly denied. Farina was in the throes of a messy breakup with his former girlfriend, had filed for bankruptcy and was coming off a bitter divorce at the time. Harmon Cohen, a retired special education administrator was hired abruptly to replace Denise Merchant, the Director of Pupil Personnel Services, on an interim basis amidst allegations of fiscal improprieties in the Special Education Department, which was run by Merchant. The school board also hired an independent firm to audit the Special Education department financial transactions. Merchant was eventually reinstated.

Gap ‘90s Archive Re-Issue

By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

Gap, the American clothing brand, has launched a limited-edition collection – the ‘90s Archive Re-Issue – for men and women featuring iconic styles from the ‘90s including the bodysuit, reverse fit and easy fit denim, pleated khakis, and the timeless pocket tee, available online and in select stores. The archive pays homage to the past and celebrates emerging talent with Rumer Willis, Coco Gordon, Evan Ross, Chelsea Tyler, Lizzy Jagger, TJ Mizell, and Naomi Campbell in the “Generation Gap” short film. The film features this roll call of emerging talent, cast from the offspring of stars of the iconic Gap ‘90s ads with a special cameo from the timeless icon and Gap alumni model, actress, and activist Naomi Campbell wearing the iconic pocket tee that she modeled in 1992 for her Steven Meisel shoot. “It’s an honor to be here, in the same outfit that I wore twenty years ago in my Gap ad,” said Campbell. “The creativity in the ‘90s is something I’m so grateful that I got to be a part of and to see and to learn from and to draw inspiration from.” To launch the collection, Gap collaborated with director Kevin Calero to create the film that is the ultimate contemporary homage to the iconic Gap ads of the ‘90s with references to “Mellow Yellow,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” and “Just Can’t Get Enough” updated with a modern twist. “I was a ‘Gap kid’ so when the call came through to re-interpret the legendary ‘90’s Gap campaigns, it was a dream come true,” said Calero.  Model Lizzy Jagger is the daughter of Jerry Hall. She wears her take on the classic black bodysuit that her mother flaunted in 1991. “The classic look for anyone is not just a ‘90s look. The white

t-shirt and jeans look has gone through the decades and is still around, and I think of that as being really Gap,” said Jagger. “I feel honored. Being part of anything Run DMC is a huge honor for me and being able to back up my father’s legacy with Gap,” said DJ TJ Mizell, son of Jam Master Jay of Run DMC, who wears the iconic Gap logo sweatshirt that his father wore in the film. Actor Evan Ross, son of Diana Ross, wears the sleeveless logo tee as a tribute to his mother who wore a simple tank in her 1991 ad. “Gap can transcend all eras. It still feels relevant. It looks like what we would be wearing right now . . . it is at the cusp of what we’re doing right now,” said Ross. Singer Chelsea Tyler, daughter of Steven Tyler, wears the sleeveless Tee and reverse pleated jeans channeling her dad’s “Easy Fit Jeans” commercial from 1997.  “Gap is taking something so classic that we all know and is so quintessential in our minds but has a new spin and current feeling to it,” said Tyler. “Gap was really the first brand to come out of the box . . . and do different and interesting things,” said singer Rumer Willis. Willis, daughter of Demi Moore, wears the cropped denim jacket, similar to the one her mother wore in her 1990 ad, with the henley bodysuit. Artist Coco Gordon, daughter of Kim Gordon who wore the pocket tee in her 1990 ad, wears the navy icon leather Jacket, black short-sleeve mockneck tee, and high rise denim short in the film. “My mom always bought me Gap clothes . . . we definitely went to the Gap for my cool clothes.” To view the collection and the “Generation Gap” film go to Gap. com/archivereissue.

East End Restaurant Week

Hamptons Restaurant Week, the brains behind the annual promotion, Long Island Restaurant and Hospitality Group, introduces a new and improved

rendition of the event, East End Restaurant Week, being held March 26 to April 2. The promotion was originally created to garner positive publicity and generate additional business for East End restaurants during a traditionally slow period and as a kick start to the spring season. What began as a South Fork promotion, was so well-received, that over the last 14 years it has grown to encompass all of the East End, including the North Fork. “We’ve always received a tremendous amount of support from the North Fork,” said LIRHG President Steve Haweeli, “It’s time we recognize that and show our appreciation for all restaurateurs involved.” Participating restaurants will offer a unique three-course prix fixe menu for $28.95, every night they are open except Saturday when the menu may only be offered until 7 PM. Each participant is required to offer three options per course. As well, the promotion will feature a new lodging component offering an option for a discount getaway to the East End. Each participating

Diners are provided the opportunity to experience new restaurants and lodging properties they might not otherwise try at an affordable price. For over the last decade restaurateurs have reported a surge in business during the promotion, some by more than 50-percent. East End Restaurant Week is presented by Long Island Restaurant and Hospitality Group, the business-to-consumer promotions division of WordHampton Public Relations.

astrology & all Week of 2/15/17 2/22/17 Highlights of the week: Saturday The Sun enters the sign of Pisces and begins a time of deep reflection for us all as we prepare for Spring. Happy Birthday Pisces! Wednesday Mars, the planet that rules our actions goes bump with Pluto, the planet of exposing scandals and outrage while Jupiter, the planet of exaggeration challenges Eris the planet of Discord. This means that frustration levels can be high and people are looking to throw blame. If possible stay out of the line of fire. This will pass. ARIES (3/20 - 4/20) Restless feelings can be running high and are best channeled into productive activity. Get out and do something. A brisk walk or even cleaning out the closets will distract you from your frustration. Donating time to a charity can lift your mood. TAURUS (4/20 - 5/20) Decisions about career or a relationship come forward. Time to take the next step? Teamwork is the key to obtaining your goals so be considerate of your partners opinion. Some people may begin to fade from your inner circle as a natural part of life. GEMINI (5/21 - 6/20) Don’t hesitate to entertain any new opportunity that comes your way either in love or work. Time for you to listen to your intuition and don’t let others discourage you. You can have that impossible dream.

CANCER (6/21 - 7/22) Where is your wealth? What do you value? The pressures of home or family may have you wondering. Deep feelings cannot be changed unless they are expressed and can lead to greater understanding and love. LEO (7/23 - 8/22) Remember power lies in setting appropriate goals. Don’t let your bad habits from smoking to being a control freak prevent you from solving problems. Use that

creative way only you know how to use to attract love. VIRGO (8/23 - 9/22) Busting out of your rut may be foremost on your mind. Express yourself freely but be aware that other motives might not be entirely wholesome. Stop trying to fix everything and everyone. LIBRA (9/22 - 10/22) Forgiveness may be a big theme this week starting with yourself. You can find much enjoyment in the everyday things and the people you love. Any show of gratitude will be rewarded tenfold. SCORPIO (10/23 - 11/21) Looking to renew your life? Chances are you will have to reveal a few secrets to get where you want to go. Half-truths will come back to haunt you. SAGITTARIUS (11/22 - 12/20) You must remain adaptable to any challenging situations that might arise. Going with the flow will save you much wear and tear. Watch and listen before making any decisions. CAPRICORN (12/21 - 1/19) Your strength lies in making good decisions but it doesn’t hurt to ask for help where needed. Organizing your time and money can bring relief from worry. AQUARIUS (1/20 - 2/18) With Mercury the planet of communications in your sign, you are able to see situations clearly and express your thoughts easily. Lose your fears as better situations are on the horizon. Love is in the air too! PISCES (2/19 - 3/20) Your friends and family are where you can find comfort and create new memories. Creative projects are highly favored as is love. Maybe it is time to put yourself first.

By Rick Murphy

RICK’S SPACE Let It Snow OK, I get it. Exercise is the secret to longevity. It’s pounded into me every day – by doctors, loved ones, and the news media. So how come when I offered to shovel snow Thursday everyone emphatically warned me not to? The prevailing opinion is shoveling snow and heart attacks are synonymous. But isn’t shoveling a good form of exercise? Those of you who know me, of course, know I am way too lazy to even consider shoveling snow. I said I’d do it knowing my offer would be rejected, thus providing fodder for me the next time Karen wants me to exercise with her. Karen: Want to walk around the block? Rick: Why? Karen: For exercise. Rick: Oh yeah? Well when I wanted to get exercise shoveling snow you wouldn’t let me and now my will has been broken. The truth is I have a real aversion

to shoveling snow, even worse than my aversion to physical labor in general. That’s because my cruel mother used to make me go out and shovel when I was a little kid in Brooklyn. We’d go out in the freezing weather and three of us would work our butts off for three hours shoveling and get maybe 50 cents each. By then we’d be so thirsty we’d go to the candy store and drink down five egg creams and end up with no money. Ever y time I refused to go my mother would bring up Joey DePino. “Joey DePino never turned down a job. By the time he was your age he owned a snowplow and had seven kids working for him. He put himself through high school by mowing lawns and saved like, $50,000. By the time he was in college he had four dump trucks, his own railroad train, and a steel mill. He bought his mother a condo in Miami. You’ll never buy me

nothing. I’ll still be washing your laundry when I’m 80 and all my friends are in Florida!” I figured I could lie around and watch cartoons and when the thaw came I’d just borrow some dough from Joey. Beats working. Which brings me to my oft-told true story about shoveling snow in Brooklyn. We would charge 50 cents a house and when we got enough we’d go to the movies. Yes, all the snow was removed – every flake. But not on that particular day. It all came to a head when Mrs. Forrentino saw me at the supermarket with my mother months later. “Hey you little punk, you stole 50 cents from me!” My mother came to my defense until she found out that I indeed took 50 cents from Mrs. Forrentino. “But you never shoveled, you little brat!” she screamed. “Mrs. Forrentino. Please calm down. Let me ask you a simple question. Is all the snow gone from your front walkway and porch? “Yes.” “I rest my case,” I said, sounding a lot like Perry Mason except I wasn’t confined to a wheelchair, though my mother did threaten to break my legs a couple times. “But it’s May!” she screamed. “Precisely,” I said. “And the snow has been removed as we promised.

February 15, 2017

You see, we didn’t say when or even if we were going to shovel. We simply asked if you wanted us to get rid of the snow, and we did. By then Mrs. Forrentino was perplexed, and my mother knew I deserved a good beating even though my logic was impeccable. You see folks, I invented the Number One Surefire Snow Removal System In The World. Me – not that brown noser Joey DePino. It is simply called THE SUN. Now that I have my own house in The Hamptons, an SUV, and a trophy wife (eat your hear out, DePino), and being I am forbidden by said wife from exercising, I can assure myself and my loved ones that the system I have created to remove snow from my yard is in place, and even as I write this, working to remove the snow, though admittedly it has turned into a sheet of ice and is extremely dangerous. Karen, of course, points out this little defect in my snow removal system to me every chance she gets. “I’m lucky I didn’t fall and crack my head open,” she complained after taking out the garbage (I was nap . . . um, working). “It’s too bad,” I remarked. “I was just going to ask you if you wanted to go for a nice, long walk.”

Editorial

Demand Answers The drug known as Narcan (naloxone) is a lifesaver. At a time when deaths from opioid overdose have reached epidemic proportions in Suffolk County, use of Narcan and training in its use have become a standard procedure for both police and ambulance staff. The cost to the region from the rampant abuse of prescription medication has been high, too high: families ripped apart, individual lives ruined, if not ended, communities in mourning, schools and government officials struggling to address the crisis, police and EMS personnel burdened with drug-related calls for service. For rescuers Narcan has been one way to pull a drug user back from the brink. Shame on manufacturers who saw its efficacy, its popularity, and jacked up the price. Last week Senator Kirsten Gillibrand joined with 31 other senators to demand answers from a leading pharmaceutical company about the dramatic price hike for naloxone. According to the senator, drug maker Kaléo Pharmaceuticals, which manufactures an easy-to-use Evzio injector device containing the overdose-reversing drug, raised its price from $690 in 2014, to $4,500 currently. The inexplicable price hike “threatens to price-out families and communities that depend on naloxone to save lives,” Gillibrand and the senators said. Congress has worked to expand access to naloxone products and help equip first responders with the life saving “antidote.” The massive price increase threatens that work, and lives. Kudos to Kirsten for keeping an eye out and trying to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Insight

WHB Junior Awarded Ariana DeMattei, 16, was named one of New York’s top two youth volunteers of 2017 by the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, a national program that honors young people for their excellence in volunteer work. Along with being New York’s State Honoree, Ariana will receive $1000, an engraved silver medallion, and an all-expense trip to Washington D.C. in May. During her trip she will meet other state honorees and participate in four days of national recognition events. By the end of the trip 10 students will be named America’s top youth volunteers of 2017. Ariana founded “Backpacks For Fellow Students” in 2012 and has since raised over $100,000 to provide more than 1,000 new backpacks and new school supplies for local students. At 12 years old Ariana noticed how expensive school supplies can be and how hard it must be for some families to be able to afford it. She wanted to help and the rest is history. C.T.

Pilates, and dance. Having never taken a barre class before I expected it to be like anything else. A little cardio, a little boundary pushing, a lot of change. Within an hour, everything I thought I knew about my body was thrown out the window. Stepping into Exhale I was given colorful sticky socks, a water bottle and small towel. Instructor Amy Hammond, started teaching at Exhale in January. She advised me to hang from the stall bar prior to the class. The bar is an orthopedic piece of equipment that is used to elongate the space between the vertebrae and spine, which comes in handy pre and post class. It called to mind the Taffy Puller in Willy Wonka, but it felt rather nice. After hanging out for a moment, I grabbed a small purple block and mat to begin. “The thing that sets it apart is the ballet bar and the fact that it’s a full body workout targeting several muscles, with low impact on your joints. It appeals to anybody and there’s always modifications for those who are injured, pregnant, male, female. Literally anyone can take the class,” Hammond said. This particular class included a man, a pregnant woman, someone with a brace, and an age gap of about thirty years. From planks to plies, stretching to strengthening, the class covered it all. Light dumbbells are used in small, frequent motions to target specific areas of the body (I’ll never underestimate two pounds again). Personally, it wasn’t even fifteen minutes into the class before my muscles were shaking. Knowing it was my first class, Hammond ensured that my form was proper at all times. “Every class is totally different. You’re never going to teach the same class twice. It depends on who’s in the class and the energy level . . . My one goal is to keep everyone moving, to keep everyone doing something. And, of course, to keep everyone having fun!” Hammond told me. Upon leaving the class I was refreshed and energized. The next day, when the workout fully set in, not so much. I felt muscles I didn’t even know I had!

How did you spend last week’s snow day? Christian Guitierrez I shoveled snow and I did some homework. I also played some video games and watched some TV. Overall it was a good day.

Linda Prado It was my birthday. So a snow day on your birthday is pretty good. We went and got a birthday cake. It was an ice cream cake from Carvel.

Kimberly Hilario My dad built us a slide, kind of like a hill that was made out of snow. And the next day when the snow got harder we turned it into an igloo by building a little tunnel through it. We had a fun snow day. Richie Perez I spent most of the day outside. The snow was really beautiful. I hung out with my friends for a while and I also shoveled the snow.

Bees, Mariners On Familiar Turf By Rick Murphy

It’s February, the winds are howling, there is snow on the ground and as always that means the Southampton Mariners and Bridgehampton Killer Bees are readying for the Suffolk County Playoffs and a berth in the New York State tournament. There are very few places where a competitive sport yields such a high percentage of probable outcome: The Bees and Mariners damn near always make a title run. This season is interesting because Southampton, the perennial Class B champions, are moving up to Class A, where the competition is brutal. So far is hasn’t posed a problem;

The locals finished with a 16-2 record and earned first place in League VI with a 12-2 mark, a game ahead of Wyandanch. Harborfields, the League V champions with a 13-1 mark (18-2 overall), is also a Class A school and will doubtless get the top seed in the tournament. Amityville (12-2 in League V) and Southampton will probably be second and third, but not necessarily in the order – it appears from here that the Mariners have earned the second seed. Section 11 was to have finalized the seeds Friday but there is still a smattering of games to be played because of the snow delays last Thursday. As of press time it looks like

The Bridgehampton Killer Bees fully expect to add more championship banners to the Beehive wall this season.

Southampton will have a home game on Friday against an opponent yet to be determined and will play again Tuesday: if the Mariners are indeed the second seed, that will be a home game as well. The Class A final will be at Suffolk County Community College-Selden on February 24. Bridgehampton, which was supposed to be in a rebuilding year, is, as usual, sitting pretty. The Bees finished Section VIII with a 10-2 mark (15-6 mark) and will likely compete against the Class C winner on the 21st at SCCC-Selden in the county CD game. There is a chance the seeding committee may allow Shelter Island, a Class D school, to play an outbracket game against Bridgehampton because it played most of its games against

larger enrollment schools. Such a scenario is not uncommon; the two teams played last season. However Shelter Island is 0-18 this season and has been thrashed by Bridgehampton twice, making the outbracket game not only superfluous but downright ridiculous. Greenport, the League VIII champion and top seed, will take on Port Jefferson for the Suffolk C title on Sunday at SCCC-Selden. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM. The Suffolk Class D champion (most likely Bridgehampton) is headed into the New York State Class D tournament and will play a regional semifinal game at SUNY Old Westbury on March 7 regardless of the outcome of the Suffolk ABCD tournament. The Class C Suffolk winner will play the same day in the state tournament. Confused? Suffolk allows for interclass play – Class D plays the Class B champion; the winner plays the Class A, and the winner plays the Class AA champion. In the state tournament, the classifications do not comingle: Class D schools play only other Class D schools, and so on. The seedings should be out by the time this newspaper is published. Go to NETPLAY.com for game dates and times.

Four Local Teams Make Girls Playoffs

By Rick Murphy

Mattituck, Pierson/ Bridgehampton, Southold/Greenport, and Mercy have all qualified for the Suffolk County Playoffs. The Lady Tuckers, the defending Long Island Class B titleholders, will play Tuesday at Riverhead High School at 1 PM for the Suffolk County Class B title. Mattituck, 15-1 in League VII and 17-2 overall, will play Mercy, 10-5 in the league. It should be noted Section 11, the governing body of Suffolk High School sports, has yet to finalize the pairings for the upcoming tournament because a number of games postponed by the snow last Thursday have yet to be played. However, it appears Pierson/ Bridgehampton (8-4,13-4) has earned the second seed and will play Southold/Greenport (7-7,9-7) in an outbracket game tomorrow in Sag Harbor at a time yet to be determined. The winner will advance into the Suffolk Class C title game Saturday at Riverhead High School against mighty Port

Jefferson: the Lady Royals are 16-1 overall thus far and tied Mattituck for first place in League VII with a 15-1 mark. Tipoff is 5 PM. The winner will play the BC title game next Wednesday, also at Riverhead High. The Suffolk ABCD game is scheduled for February 28. Remember, though Suffolk allows the different classification winners to compete against each other for the overall county title, the New York State tournament is a totally different animal. If Mattituck defeats Mercy the locals advance into the State Class B tournament and will play the Nassau County Class B championship on March 6. A win will send the locals upstate where they will contend for the Class B regional title and a trip to the Final Four tournament. The Class C winner will also play on March 6 – both games are scheduled for SUNY-Old Westbury beginning with the Class C game at 5PM. The Final Four weekend is March 17 through 19 at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy.
