Baskets & Bunnies & Bonnets, Oh My!

Compiled by Kitty Merrill

The hunts are on! Time to hippity hop hop over to your local venue for an annual Easter Egg hunt. Quests abound across the East End this weekend and some even got an early start last weekend. (Check out our awesome pictures of early hunts elsewhere in this edition.) Here’s a roundup of where to search for splendor – ok, candy – in the grass. • The Sag Harbor Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Easter Bonnet Parade and Petting Zoo on Saturday. Decorate your Easter Bonnet and meet in front of Muse restaurant on Main Street. The parade starts at 1 PM. The Easter Bunny will lead the Sidewalk Parade to the Sag Harbor Garden Center for a free Petting Zoo from noon till 2 PM.  • The 57th Sag Harbor Lions Club’s Easter Egg Hunt will be held at Mashashimuet Park on Easter Sunday.  The Easter Bunny will be delivered by the Sag Harbor Fire Department at around 12:45 PM. This year the Easter Bunny shipped the Sag Harbor Lions 3000 multi-colored eco-friendly eggs rather than the old

plastic eggs, which are filled with candy, trinkets and prizes. The high quality Eco-eggs are biodegradable eggs that look like colorful plastic, but are made of natural materials which decompose. Not only are Eco Eggs eco-friendly, but they are made and filled by a woman-owned business, which took a failing candy company and turned it around - while adhering to highest eco standards. Members of Pierson High School’s Interact club volunteered to help stuff the eggs and with the hunt.

The eco-eggs will be set out in the picnic area of the park in three groups: for the youngest hunters two-to-four-year-olds, five-to-sevenyear-olds and hunters over eight-toten-year-olds.   The Easter Bunny will start the youngest group by themselves at 1 PM. After the youngest are done the Bunny will start the intermediate group.  When they are done the Bunny will start the oldest group.  As in the past, several of the eggs are filled with golden tickets for special prizes. Scorpion Farms

sale items end 4/22/17

will be there with the pony rides for the children with a donation of $5 per ticket. • Montauk’s “Eggstravaganza” Easter egg hunt and games for kids 10 and under hatches 11 AM Saturday on the Village Green, hosted by Montauk Chamber of Commerce and the Candied Anchor. The free day of fun and games features an egg hunt by age groups, egg toss, carrot toss, sock race, bunny hop, bunny bowling and pin the tail on the bunny. Easter baskets and bunny ears are given out and prizes awarded for events. Rain date is Saturday, April 22, at noon. • On Saturday at 11 AM Marders in Bridgehampton hosts an Easter Egg hunt at 11 AM. The Marder’s bunny hutch is located on Snake Hollow Road. • The Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt and the Southampton Trails Preservation Society join forces Sunday for their Annual Easter Egg Hunt. Meet at Poxabogue Park south of the railroad trestle on Old Farm Road in Bridgehampton. Search for Easter eggs along a beautiful trail with pond views. Continued on Page 38.

rendition of “La Marseillaise.” That cut to a young French woman singing with tears streaming down her face was magical. Corny? Sure it was. It was known as patriotism in those days. We were better for it. *************************************

MY REVERSE BUCKET LIST Someone asked me a stupid question the other day: “What’s on your bucket list?” For those of you who haven’t heard about a “bucket list,” it comes from the term “kicked the bucket,” as in “dead.” Your bucket list is supposed to be all the things you want to do before you die. There was even a movie about a bucket list where two guys who are dying, played by Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, escape from a hospital and set out to do all the things they want to do before they die. What crap. To begin with, a bucket list is a male thing. I don’t know any woman who has a bucket list. Women are satisfied with their lives. Men, on the other hand, aren’t even honest about their bucket list. They bullcrap about wanting to climb Mount Kilimanjaro before they die . . . or how they want to hang glide over El Capitan in Yosemite . . . or dive into the Pacific Ocean at night, armed only with a rusty penknife to hunt killer sharks. Bullcrap . . . bullcrap . . . bullcrap . . . The only thing on most men’s

bucket lists that they never will reveal to anyone is that before they die they all want to be in a threesome with Jennifer Lopez and “yucky icky” Kim Kardashian. I will never have a bucket list. What I do have is a reverse bucket list. I want to have those small special moments in my life back again, if only for a few minutes. Granted, my reverse bucket list contains some personal things that may only be of interest to me. So if my list bores you, just stop reading and come up with your own reverse bucket list. Think back to those special moments in your own life. Try it. It will make you feel good about the past and not give a damn about the future. Here are a few memories I treasure. I have thousands of others. I want to see the movie Casablanca as I saw it for the first time. Especially the scene when Paul Henreid (as Victor Laszlo) leads a crowd of patrons at Rick’s Café to drown out the Nazis singing “Die Wacht am Rhein.” Laszlo, with Rick’s nod as permission, gets the patrons to sing a loud, rousing

I want to be making out as a horny 16-year-old in the back seat of an old 1948 Chevy at the lovers’ lane in Plum Beach, Brooklyn. Sex? Not much. But one learned how to unhook the back of a bra with one hand while kissing. Those were known as the “just above the waist” years. ************************************* I want to see a young Mickey Mantle beating out an infield hit when he came up in 1951 and was running on healthy young legs. ************************************* I want to be cruising Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn with Georgie, Ronnie, Sonny, Vinny, Guy, Tony and Carl, packed in a car with the radio playing “Earth Angel” by the Penguins and “Sincerely” by the Moonglows. We were trying to pick up girls who were sitting on the Ocean Parkway benches waiting to be picked up by guys in cars. It was long before we all had to be politically correct. These were nice girls, some of whom some of us married. Their names? Terry, Anne, Maria, Mary. We were all so young. We were all so sure we would live forever. ************************************* I want to watch Tom Brady’s last Hail Mary pass to Randy Moss being blocked by Corey Webster and

dropping to the ground and once again feel the delirious happiness that my underdog football Giants had just won the Super Bowl against impossible odds. ************************************* I want to be 18 years old one summer night at Roosevelt Raceway, watching the harness race we all had been tipped was fixed. I bet $4 (all I had) on a horse named Volo Yates. Coming down the stretch Volo Yates looked like a loser behind two horses whose drivers were side-byside heading for the finish line. Then the drivers visibly pulled their horses — they moved to the side and separated and that left a gap between them. Then Volo Yates came down the middle and hit the finish line first. He paid $42 for a $2 bet. I won $84, which was a month’s salary in the dead-end job I had. It was the most money, at the time, that I had ever held in my hands. ************************************* I want one more Easter Sunday meal at our tiny house on West 7th Street in Brooklyn, with my mother, my father, my little brother, my grandmother and grandfather and my uncle. We weren’t a religious family by any stretch of the imagination, but Easter Sunday would be the only day my grandfather – fueled by two or three glasses of red wine – would take the palm from Palm Sunday and the holy water from Good Friday and bless the table. He splattered us all with holy water and we laughed uproariously. When I was 10, they would give me cream soda with a healthy pour of red wine. I felt so grown up and so, so safe. ************************************* I want it to be a Saturday night around midnight when I was 17. All of the boys met at Joe’s Bar on Avenue U after a long strenuous night of unhooking bras at Plum Beach. It was a male bonding thing over pizza, beer, and delicious capuzzelle (half a lamb’s head, brains and eye included). I always ate all of the capuzzelle except the eye. I always felt the lamb’s eye was staring at me. ************************************* I want to go back to the night my wife Barbara and I took our newborn daughter Donna home for the first time. I was 21, my wife was 18. I was up all night watching my baby breathe. ************************************* Memories. After a while they’re all we have and they’re all we need.

They’ll Tell You All About It By Kitty Merrill

Public engagement and support is the cornerstone of any successful program, according to Adrienne Esposito, executive director of the Citizens Campaign for the Environment. She stood with other environmentalists, elected officials and County Executive Steve Bellone Monday, as he announced plans to reach out to Suffolk County property owners. The goal of the educational campaign: to inform community members about the Reclaim Our Water: Septic Improvement Plan. It’s hardly a sexy topic. But more and more officials and environmentalist are placing

emphasis on the importance of keeping Long Island’s waterways clean and free of the nitrogen that leaches from aging septic systems. Reclaim Our Water is the first program of its kind in Suffolk County. It’s designed to help eligible homeowners cover the expense of replacing their old septic system with high tech advanced nitrogen removal septic systems. “This financing model provides an affordable means for workingand- middle-class homeowners to improve their water infrastructure, cl e a n o u r e n v i ro nment, a nd ultimately increase home property values,” said County Executive Bellone. “Our fight to Reclaim

quality while providing a leading model in which residents can help tackle the nitrogen epidemic.” The program would provide grants and low interest financing for eligible homeowners. Who’s eligible? How much are the grants? Under the program, homeowners would apply for a grant to cover the cost of an advanced wastewater treatment system.   The grant, which is estimated in the amount of $10,000 or $11,000, would enable eligible homeowners to cover the costs of systems that cost between $14,500 and $17,500. If the plan is approved by the county legislature, it could launch, through an application process, as early as this July. In addition to the grant, homeowners could qualify to finance the remaining cost over 15 years at a low three percent fixed interest rate. The loan program will be administered by Community Development Corporation of Long Island Funding Corp, with financial support from Bridgehampton National Bank. Comparatively, the cost to replace and install a new cesspool or septic system with no capabilities to reduce nitrogen is estimated at $6,000 to $8,000. Only about 400 property owners throughout the county could get this funding during the first year of the program. Sounds like a lot, until one takes into account that officials estimate more than 360,000 homes in Suffolk County,  more than the entire state of New Jersey, rely on outdated cesspools and septic systems that do not treat wastewater to remove nitrogen properly. Still, environmentalists like Kevin McAllister, founding president of Defend H2O, are optimistic. He said Monday, “Long Island’s economy, community life and leisure time coalesce around healthy bays and Continued on Page 39.

Sand, Sea, And Suits By Kitty Merrill

It’s been going on for almost a quarter century. For close to 25 years, residents of the Soundview Drive section of Montauk have been begging town officials to help save their disappearing beach. The crisis has gone on so long, homes are in danger of falling into the sea as sand is scoured from in front of and in some cases under their homes. Homeowners pleaded for help and while town officials dating back to former Supervisor Cathy Lester have been sympathetic, they’ve balked at undertaking mitigation. The feds caused the problem and the feds should have to pay to fix it, has been the argument from every administration dating back to the 90s. Most believe jetties built by the Army Corps of Engineers are to blame for the sand scouring. In 2011 a group of property owners filed suit against the town and the Army Corps. It’s going to trial. Last week, Judge Joanna Seybert denied the town’s motion for dismissal of the suit, rejecting the town’s arguments against homeowners’ claims of private nuisance, public nuisance, and trespass. Jonathan Sinnreich, a Central Islip attorney represents the property owners. In a release Wednesday, he stated, “ What is different is that the Judge found that, as a result of pretrial discovery and testimony, we have offered a sufficient factual basis for our claims to require a trial.” “The Court has, once again, strongly rejected the Town’s attempt to wash its hands of any responsibility and to say their hands are tied by the federal government’s control over the jetties and navigation channel,” commented Sinnreich. Quoting from her own previous decision, Judge Seybert states that “the navigability of the channel and the protection of Plaintiffs’ properties are not mutually exclusive options.” “This is a dagger in the heart of what has always been the Town’s p r i m a r y d e f e n s e ,” S i n n r e i c h opined. The lawsuit alleges that the town-owned jetties have caused catastrophic erosion and damage to the public and private beaches, sand dunes and homes west of the jetties, and has left the plaintiffs’ homes vulnerable to total destruction by future

storms. The lawsuit asks the Court to “order the responsible government agencies to restore and replenish the western beaches to their original condition and to continue to maintain them against future erosion caused by the jetties.” In an earlier lawsuit by the same plaintiffs in state court, Judge Arthur Pitts ruled that the homeowners’ complaint stated valid claims for both a public as well as a private nuisance as a result of the erosion caused by the jetties. That suit was dismissed at the town’s behest because it didn’t include the ACOE. A suit in federal court included the Corps of Engineers as a defendant. “This suit is based on thousands of documents that unequivocally demonstrate that the responsible government entities have been aware of this problem for many years and have acknowledged that the jetties are the cause of the problem, but have simply been unwilling to take action to fix the problem,” stated Sinnreich. The affected area, Culloden Shores, is comprised of some 400 homes, all which have beach rights directly, or through their respective associations. Over 40 homes are directly on the beach, many of which have suffered damage as a result of the loss of beach and dunes caused by the jetties. Motels and cooperative apartments are also located there. The jetties have caused the loss of invaluable public environmental and recreational amenities, including the public beach immediately west of the jetties bordering the Gosman’s parking lot, and the destruction of the entire public foreshore from the jetties all the way west to Culloden Point, court documents contend. “The destruction of our beaches is not the result of a natural disaster,” stated Frank DeVito, one of the plaintiff homeowners whose home was almost washed away in December 2010. “It is the result of government inaction and indifference, and it is deeply disappointing and frustrating that the only recourse available to us after years of study, neglect and inaction by our government is to bring this lawsuit to seek redress in the courts and for the government to spend millions for defense, but nothing to fix the problem they caused.” Although many blame the

ACOE for the damage caused by the jetties, the court has dismissed their inclusion in the lawsuit. A claim against the feds could, however, be revisited at a later date. Plaintiffs maintain that in light of the recent decision of the town to not partner with the Army Corps in a true fix of the problem, the town is now solely responsible for the entire project, and all of the plaintiffs’ damages, should it lose at trial. According to East Hampton Town Supervisor Larry Cantwell, the ACOE studied erosion projects involving the inlet and shoreline west of the jetties for several years. Last month representatives from the Corps presented several alternatives to mitigate erosion. They favored building groins, in direct opposition to the town’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program. The LWRP opposes the construction of hard structures for shoreline protection. Town officials preferred the idea of sand replenishment, using the product of dredging, plus sand from the ocean bottom offshore to build up the beach. The feds said they’d pay for their preferred project. If East Hampton wants a “sand only” replenishment, the town would

have to contribute some $10 million towards the cost of that option. Cantwell said the town continues to hold the position that the corps built the jetties and should remain in the lawsuit and pay the cost of beach replenishment. The town will defend the suit and continue to pursue another alternative that includes expanding navigation for Montauk Inlet through dredging to make the channel wider and deeper. The sand from such a project could be used to nourish the beach along Soundview Drive. In other news of sand and suits, the suits in the corps have agreed to undertake another repair of the project at what’s become known “dirtbag beach” in Downtown Montauk. The moniker was given to the oceanfront area after the ACOE crafted a shoreline preservation project comprised of bags filled with dirt that were supposed to be covered with more sand, emphasis on “supposed to be.” This is the second time in a year the feds have been back to repair their shoreline “protection” project, which was supposed to last 15 years. “That’s not a very good track record,” the supervisor said.

INDY FIT

By Nicole Teitler

A Practice For Everyone My typical response to participating in a yoga class is “Namaste out of it.” However, it’s hard to argue yoga’s multitude of benefits, such as increased flexibility, muscle strength, circulatory health, and injury protection (among many others) that come with the practice. In this week’s Indy Fit I have decided to highlight a groundbreaking program here on the East End that offers yoga classes to those battling cancer. Yoga, unlike some other physical activities, can be for everyone including cancer patients. Yoga geared for those touched by cancer aims to increase lymphatic flow in order to optimize the immune system. A primary difference between the practice for those with the ailment and those of healthier bodies is that many breast cancer patients practicing yoga have undergone a

mastectomy or biopsy. This causes scarring of the breast tissue, which can cause stress when doing yoga poses such as downward facing dog or headstands. As bone density could be lower in cancer patients, these classes alleviate pressure on the neck by keeping the head up. Eric Pettigrew has been teaching yoga for 20 years and is a master trainer for Y4C (yoga 4 cancer), a program created by Tari Prinster. In addition, Pettigrew participates in the integrative therapy program Urban Zen and collaborates with the non-profit, Fighting Chance. Through The Ellen Hermanson Foundation he also holds yoga at Southampton Hospital free of charge every Wednesday at 10:15 AM in the wellness center. “We gain a sense of self of the body, to reconnect with balance . . . the benefit is to be joined, to be

Eric Pettigrew.

in a group. To know that you’re not alone . . . that there’s other people like you. You can go out of your house, to move and to feel good about yourself,” Pettigrew affirmed. The groups maintain a compassionate dynamic through the essential core commonality of the disease. Yoga Shanti in Sag Harbor offers a complimentary Therapeutic Yoga for Cancer class described as “yoga for hope, health, and healing.” Pettigrew and fellow instructor Hilary Chasin teach a class on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30 to 3:45 PM. All classes average 10 to 15 people during off-season with more during the warmer months. Through the energized movement of these yoga classes, the form is gentle but works to increase blood flow, with a restorative cool down.

On Sundays at 2:30 PM a class is offered at Ananda Wellness Yoga in Southampton. The class is sponsored by Fighting Chance and is with intructor Karen Meyer. As with any fitness routine, and with any individual body, strength is achieved through practice. Being healthy is about mentality as well as capability, and through that we all have the ability to achieve goals. Who knows, maybe the next time someone asks me to take a yoga class I’ll remember all of the inspiring patients taking the step to better their lives and roll out the mat.

Governor Has Financial Ties With Wind Company

By Rick Murphy

In January Governor Andrew Cuomo gleefully announced the approval of the most ambitious offshore wind generated project in the history of the state. It was the culmination of a three-year project during which the LIPA board mulled dozens of alternate energy

proposals. But none of the companies seeking a contract from LIPA exerted the pressure that Deepwater Wind did – on LIPA board members and state and local public officials. And none of them threw money around like Deepwater. The approval of the South

Fork Wind Farm, a 90 megawatt development 30 miles southeast of Montauk, “is the first step toward developing an area that can host up to 1000 megawatts of offshore wind power,” Cuomo said in a press release. Deepwater is South Fork Wind’s parent company, and has secured

the rights to develop wind farms on hundreds of underwater acres. The contract is worth $1.62 billion. Critics also said Deepwater wasn’t the low bidder – in fact, its bid was one of the highest. Yet it had never built a wind generator when company officials Continued on Page 17.

Critics Charge Wind Farm Will Kill Fish By Rick Murphy

The proposed wind farm to be built off the coast of Montauk is under full attack by an everincreasing group of opponents. I n r e c e n t w e e k s environmentalists, politicians, and East Hampton Town residents have expressed concerns that the cable will harm the fish stock in bays and the Atlantic Ocean where the electric cable is to be buried. Last week the East Hampton Town Trustees entered the fray, with one member questioning the cost of the project and whether or not it will benefit the East End at all. Bill Grimes, a town trustee, said it is his understanding that the electricity provided from the 15 wind generators will be significantly more expensive than the going rate, and that LIPA has agreed to buy all of it. Others at a recent meeting of the trustees questioned the cable that will run into Gardiners Bay and make land somewhere near

the old fish factory in Amagansett or by Fresh Pond. Some speakers questioned whether burying the cable will harm fish life and disrupt migratory patterns. Governor Andrew Cuomo pushed hard for the project, and some critics said his motives are political in nature. There is an article about Cuomo’s role elsewhere in this edition. Tom Falcone, the LIPA CEO, pointed out that New York State, specifically Cuomo, has a goal of being powered by at least 50 percent clean energy by 2030, and utilities have been charged with reaching that goal. LIPA is in the process of complying, and the wind project is a major step in the process, he said. Al Schaffer, a fisherman who owns a lobster boat and a dragger, said the cable that will run from the ocean generators into East Hampton will be a disaster for fisherman and many fish species. “It will destroy the bottom. The

cable puts out heat and makes a humming noise,” Schaffer said. He said heavy storms would likely unearth the cable, and since it will “go right through the tow line of Nappeague Bay” where it will likely get snagged even if there is a concrete cover should a major storm unearth it. Grimes said LIPA has agreed to purchase all the energy generated by the wind farm at 30-cent a megawatt, with annual increases built into the contract. Falcone said the 30-cent figure “isn’t remotely accurate” but he declined to say what the price will be, even though he knows. “Deepwater won a competitive installation, and we signed a confidentiality agreement” not to

reveal the actual cost of the power, he said. Newsday reported the project would add about $4 a month to the average electric bill in 2017. But there are automatic increases built in for 20 years that will raise the price significantly above 30-cents a megawatt. Bonnie Brady, the Executive Director of the Long Island Commercial Fishing Association, said the contract calls for annual increases of 3.5 cents a year for 20 years. That will make the price of energy “astronomical” to PSEG users. “And we don’t even need it here in East Hampton,” she added. Some critics questioned whether Cuomo wants the power in the grid because the Indian Point Nuclear Plant is going offline, which was a campaign promise he made. LIPA officials said the two projects are unrelated. “South Fork was selected months before Indian Point was announced to retire,” according to an e-mail from NYSERDA, the state authority charged with implementing the state’s alternative energy plan. Officials from the authority declined to go on record despite repeated requests from The Independent. Schaffer said he and his colleagues have reached out to fisherman in Europe, where offshore wind generators are more common, and have heard horror stories. “All these politicians on board . . . they hear ‘Green Energy’ but they don’t know the damages.” The turbines to be erected in the ocean will be pounded into the ocean bottom and set into cement footings, Schaffer said. “It will be 220 decibels. It can kill fish up to three quarters of a mile away,” Brady said. “If those offshore wind energy leases are not stopped, it will result in thousands of lost US fishing jobs and the destruction of domestic fish stocks.”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 15. began a full court press to get Deepwater chosen and to convince LIPA to bypass other applicants, including many that touted onshore solar farms. “The farther out you go the more it costs to bring back,” said Bonnie Brady, the executive director of the Center For Sustainable Fisheries. Deepwater was also in the process of gobbling up the rights to build more off the coastlines of several states. The New York State Energy, Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has developed a blueprint for promoting offshore wind projects. “They have $5 billion plus a $1 million green fund. They want to sell off the ocean,” Brady said. And it’s Cuomo who is the driving force behind it. The LIPA vote came two weeks after Governor Cuomo called on the LIPA board to approve the wind farm project, though in 2014 a spokesman for the governor denied Cuomo was pushing for the firm. Deepwater is majority owned and funded by D.E. Shaw Group, a $34 billion New York hedge fund, several of whose managers sit on the wind-farm company's board of advisers, according to an article by Mark Harrington in Newsday three years ago. “David E. Shaw, founder of the fund, has contributed widely to Democratic political campaigns, including more than $38,000 to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's campaigns for state attorney general and governor,” Harrington wrote. Shaw tops a list of donors to President Barack Obama's Organizing for Action campaign, Harrington reported. Under the Obama Administration, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) pressed forward on an aggressive offshore wind policy, which has already granted and sold bottom leases on important fishing grounds. In 2010 Obama signed Executive Order 13547 creating the National Ocean Council and two regional ocean planning bodies, in the Northeast (NE-RPB) and the Mid-Atlantic (Mid-RPB). BOEM is a co-lead of both groups.  BOEM, through former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's Smart from the Start program, sped up the offshore wind energy leasing process to use unsolicited bids to auction off traditional, historic, and productive commercial and recreational fishing grounds to, in many cases, foreign wind energy companies.

“In essence, BOEM is now allowing a `For Sale’ shingle hanging from every aliquot of federal waters to be allowed to be auctioned off to the highest bidders without any pre-lease siting determination of where offshore wind should be sited,” said Brady. A spokesman for Cuomo said in 2014 that the governor's office has "no stance on any of the proposals that LIPA is currently reviewing as part of its renewable energy portfolio.” Harrington also reported LIPA board members favored other projects. Then Deepwater started

bombarding lobbyists with money to urge those involved to get behind the wind project. “T he c o mpa ny pa id To nio Burgos & Associates of Manhattan $120,000 a year to lobby state agencies, including the executive branch, Senate and Assembly . . . Among those registered to lobby for the company are Burgos, the firm's founder, and Kristen Walsh, former Long Island representative for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand,” said Harrington. Burgos was appointments secretary and director of executive services in the administration of former Governor Mario Cuomo.

He also served as Cuomo’s senior commissioner of the Port Authority. “Burgos has given more than $80,000 to Andrew Cuomo campaigns since 2005, and his firm has given $140,800,” Newsday reported. Governor Cuomo’s goal is to produce 2400 megawatts of offshore wind power by 2030 — enough to power a million homes. GOP critics contend he has a more immediate – and selfish – motive: a run at the U.S. Presidency. Cuomo’s take is more altruistic: “to help preserve our environment for current and future generations of New Yorkers,” he said.

Miss Matched And yet another argument against online dating. A Pennsylvania woman met a local person online about two weeks ago. They spent the night together in PA, then drove back to East Hampton. She called her mom to come get her because she didn’t wish to hang out with the match any more. Everybody agreed to meet in the parking lot in East Hampton Village on Sunday afternoon. Mom and the match got into an argument in the lot and once the police got involved, the original wouldbe date took some hypodermic needles she used to shoot heroin out of her bra. Further investigation revealed she was wanted on a warrant out of PA. Charges leveled in East Hampton include misdemeanor possession. In other news of the drug ilk, Kamil Ozer, 52, of Westhampton,

Police recovered a quantity of packaged crack cocaine during the search. Seymore was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance in the third degree (intent to sell) and criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fourth degree (weight more than oneeighth of an ounce), police said. He was remanded to Suffolk County jail in lieu of $30,000 bail.

astrology & all Week of 4/12/17 4/19/17 Highlights of the week: On Saturday, Venus, the planet which rules our attitudes about love and money, moves direct after a three week retrograde. Now we will be able to move forward with our plans and relationships should flow more smoothly. On Sunday, we celebrate Easter which continues this feeling of renewal. The Sun will enter the sign of Taurus on Wednesday, 4/19. Happy Birthday to all born under this sign. Spring is finally here. ARIES (3/20 - 4/20) Please watch your spending. If you start to save for that rainy day (or vacation) you will be happy. It’s time to put your creative brain to work. TAURUS (4/21 - 5/20) No matter how frustrated you get either at home or work, you must watch how you express yourself. Use your charm rather than harsh words to get what you want. GEMINI (5/21 - 6/20) Continue to find ways to enjoy yourself, whether through exercise or friendly get togethers. Even a short stroll, or a coffee date with a pal will do much to relieve your stress. CANCER (6/21 - 7/22) These holidays will encourage you to gather friends and family to your home. Relaxing with those closest to you will elevate your mood and create precious memories. LEO (7/22 - 8/23) Look for ways to bring in extra money. If you and your loved one, or business colleague, do not agree, it is time for a realistic conversation. VIRGO (8/23 - 9/22) Thinking of renovating your home or is it time to move? Now you might want to research redecorating or renovations or real estate sales. Even cleaning out your closets may help.

LIBRA (9/23 - 10/22) Venus is giving you the green light to make plans with your partner. If single, it is a good time to start looking around as finding love becomes easier. SCORPIO (10/23 - 11/21) If your daily plans go haywire, practice some patience. Just because there is a twist in the road it does not mean you can’t have what you desire. SAGITTARIUS (11/22 - 12/21) With Saturn hanging out in your sign, you need to have some laughs with friends to get relief. Problems will not melt away but they can be handled later. CAPRICORN (12/22 - 1/19) Putting all your papers in order and using this time to tackle any clutter will clear the cobwebs from your mind. You will feel much better when you free up your space. AQUARIUS (1/20 - 2/19) Family gatherings and family roots may fascinate you. Looking into the history of your ancestors through the sharing of stories and old photos will make this holiday meaningful. PISCES (2/19- 3/20) Although extra busy at work, if you cooperate willingly you will be in line for that promotion. Be that happy worker bee! More money will also flow in as an additional benefit.

It’s Little & It’s Free The Rogers Memorial Library this week announced the opening of Southampton Village’s first “Little Free Library” at Agawam Park. This free book exchange program is a non-profit that began in 2009 in Wisconsin when a young man built a model of a one room schoolhouse as a tribute to his mother, a teacher and great lover of books. He filled it with books and put it on his front lawn. When word spread he was soon building more of his “little libraries” and giving them away to friends and before long a national movement was born. Today there are more than 50,000 Little Free Libraries in all 50 states and around the world. RML is thrilled to be a part of this wonderful organization. The library was purchased through the Suffolk Cooperative Library System and with cooperation from Southampton Village, is now installed near the playground in Agawam Park. Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Rogers Memorial Library, the Little Free Library will be regularly restocked by RML staff with books for children, teens, and adults but anyone who would like to is welcome to “borrow a book and leave a book” of their own.

Independent Dining Chicken Tostada

Ingredients (serves 4) 2 chicken breasts 8 corn tortillas 1/2 red onion (sliced thin) 1cup cheddar cheese 4 cups chicken stock 2 avocado 2 dried ancho chilis (seeded) 1 dried jalapeño (seeded) 2 tbsp tomato paste 1 can black beans (drained and rinsed) 1 clove of garlic 1 tbsp soy sauce 1 bunch cilantro (washed) 1/2 cup picked flat parsley (washed) 1/4 cucumber 1 cup Greek yogurt 2 limes (juiced) 2 cups chopped Bibb lettuce 1/4 cup sugar 1 bay leaf 2 tbsp white vinegar Water Ground cumin (to taste) 1 tsp cinnamon Salt and pepper (to taste) 1 fresh jalapeño (seeded)

Turn on oven to 300 degrees. Place 1 cup of chicken stock, dried and seeded chilis, soy sauce, tomato paste, garlic, 1 tbsp of cumin, 1 tsp cinnamon, salt and pepper in a microwave safe bowl, cover with plastic, and cook 1 1/2 minutes on high. Let sit covered for 5 minutes, then purée in the blender.  Mix the purée with 3 cups of chicken stock, cook the chicken breasts in a 3-4" deep braising pan with a lid. Cook at 300 for three hours with the lid on. Meanwhile, bring the sugar, white

vinegar, 1 tbsp salt, and 1 cup water to a boil. Once at a boil, stir and make sure the sugar is dissolved, then add a handful of cilantro and the juice of 1/2 a lime and pour the hot liquid over the sliced red onion. Allow that mixture to cool in the fridge.  While your pickled onions cool, place the cucumber, a hand full of cilantro, the parsley, 1/2 cup yogurt, juice of 1/2 a lime, 1/2 avocado, and 1/2 seeded fresh jalapeño in the blender and purée until smooth. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the braising pan and put into a mixing bowl covered with plastic wrap.  Now reduce the braising liquid by half and strain the reduced liquid through a sieve into the bowl with the braised chicken, saving 1/4 cup to mix with your black beans. Pull the tender chicken apart with a fork to incorporate with the sauce.  Finally, in a food processor pulse half the can of beans with the 1/4 cup of braising liquid. Add the other half of the can to the mixture after pulsing. To assemble your tostada, turn the oven up to 350, place the corn tortillas on a sheet tray and toast each side 3 minutes. Once the tortillas are toasted, add a large spoonful of the bean purée on each and spread evenly to the edge of the tortilla. Follow that with by a generous spoonful of the pulled chicken and a sprinkling of cheddar cheese.  The tostadas will go back in the oven for 3 minutes to melt the cheese. When they come out, finish with your shredded lettuce, sliced avocado, pickled onion, yogurt, and your cucumber cilantro dressing. Enjoy!

Almond in Bridgehampton has announced new chef de cuisine, Jeremy Blutstein. Formerly of East By Northeast in Montauk, Blutstein has joined Almond where he will continue the strong commitment of using local products and local produce in order to support the local community alongside Executive Chef Jason Weiner. A graduate of New York Restaurant School, Blutstein has spent time perfecting his skills at multiple noteworthy restaurants. For several years, he split time between Montauk and New York City where he spent time working at Eataly and Margaux and Tremont, where he was nominated for a James Beard Award. After two years at the Crow’s Nest in Montauk, he went on to join East by Northeast as executive chef. “Joining the team at Almond is an organic transition for me. Jason and I have very similar beliefs in utilizing the bounty that our super tight community produces. Cooking seasonally on the East End is made fun by the personal connections we make with the farmers, fisherman, baymen, and local artisans. Expect great things from an already dope kitchen to continue with an enormous amount of fun. The culinary dream team has been assembled . . . Bring the ruckus . . . Food Is Bond,” said Blutstein. “This is a guy who shares our commitment to localism, old school technique, and ethnic/street food/peasant cuisine. He’s also a friend. Super psyched to have him on our crew. Our restaurant just got a hell of a lot better,” said Weiner. J.M.

Editorial NY’s #1 . . . OUCH! Just in time for tax day, the folks at the personal finance website WalletHub have released their 2017 tax burden by state report. News about New York State is not terribly surprising, just terrible. We rank first in overall tax burden, first in personal income tax burden, and seventh in the country for property tax burden. Ouch. Concurrently, the surveyors released a report about taxpayer return on investment, meaning, what do we get for the taxes we pay. WalletHub compared quality and efficiency of state government services and, again, ouch. New York ranked 46 out of 50 in overall return on investment, 42 in total taxes per capita, and an abysmal 50, dead last, when it came to infrastructure and pollution. For services related to education and health, New York did a little better, landing in the middle at 22, and 32 respectively. Our tax burden is the highest, and our return on investment the worst . . . Something to consider this weekend, just in case you weren’t cranky enough signing and sending in all your forms (and checks). Now, go look at all the photos of adorable children collecting Easter Eggs elsewhere in this edition. It helps.

Independent VOICES

PDD Unnecessary

Dear Editor, A recent event involving a proposed golf course development in East Quogue, known as The Hills, continues to illustrate why Democrats live in a bubble. The developer, Discovery Land (with ties to the Democratic Party), has applied for a special zoning exception known as a Planned Development District or PDD. A PDD is a zoning vehicle that allows a developer to increase density. Other than Southampton, no Town on the East End uses PDDs to accomplish zoning goals so obviously a PDD is just one of many zoning theories. Using another zoning theory, Discovery Land could have submitted a simple variance to build a golf course similar to, say, the Maidstone Club surrounded

by an appropriately reduced number of traditionally-zoned houses. In return for granting the variance, the Town could have required that the development be built using environmentally-friendly techniques. Instead Discovery Land argues that it cannot develop The Hills without building a catering hall (in addition to the golf course and the maximum number of houses) to link with a "flamingo-kid-style" beach club that the corporation owns in Westhampton. To generate support for its PDD, Discovery Land employed a Westhampton science teacher to lead a hike through The Hills property.  The science teacher has voluntarily become part of Discovery Land's publicity machine and has implied that he has discussed the "science" behind The Hills PDD with his students. Aside from the fact that it is irregular for a public servant, whose salary is paid by taxpayers, to advocate for a developer, this educator may be emphasizing The Hills version of zoning theory to his students, a flaw that should be of concern to the Board of Education.

Ed Gifford Whether one supports a golf course or not, it is indisputable that a developer can build an environmentally-friendly development without increasing density or creating a PDD. Simply put, PDDs are not needed to accomplish a Town's zoning goals. SUSAN CERWINSKI

Rock Star Candidates Dear Editor, On Wednesday evening, April 5, the East Hampton Town Republican Committee (EHTRC) formally endorsed its Town Board candidates for the upcoming election. Manny Vilar, for Supervisor and Paul Giardina and Jerry Larsen, respectively, for Town board members. The EHTRC is energized and looking forward to a spirited campaign. Our Republican team is comprised of professionals, each one a success in their respective careers. In particular, this team has extraordinary experience in environmental issues. With over 100 years’ collective management experience, much of that time has been devoted to hands-

Is it just me?

on administration, policy making and enforcement of environmental laws and regulations. In my opinion, there are no candidates in this town better prepared to handle the complex and critical environmental issues facing East Hampton Town. From septics and clean water to the Atlantic Ocean windfarm project, and all environmental projects in between, Vilar, Giardina and Larsen have the required real world experience to make informed and sound decisions on these issues. Moreover, they have extraordinary professional contacts, nurtured over decades, to get East Hampton’s issues a hearing in the highest levels of federal, state and local government. We look forward to East Hampton residents getting to know our rock star candidates. The trio already has been meeting and greeting residents on Sunday afternoons at local restaurants. We will be providing the locations of the upcoming meets and greets, so stay tuned! CAROLE CAMPOLO VICE CHAIR EAST HAMPTON TOWN REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE © Karen Fredericks

Are you a baseball fan? Esther Palomo I follow baseball because of my sons and my husband, Ozzie Palomo. He used to be a high school baseball coach. We’re from Costa Rica and my great-grandfather, Agostine Palomo, is in the hall of fame there for bringing baseball from Colombia and Panama to Costa Rica. Terrance Weber I’m a Yankees fan. I send my clients to Yankee games all the time and sometimes I go along with them.

Wendy Ricci My family is excited about the season starting. I’m a Yankee fan. But I’m an old Met fan too. But in 1969, when I was in college, I just loved the whole Yankee team with Thurmond Munsen, Greg Nettles, Reggie Jackson and Rivers. Liz Joyce I’m not a big fan of baseball because it’s the longest game. There are no rules about the length of the game. As a sport it’s interminable.

Area teens recently participated in an escape room program presented by the Westhampton Free Library’s teen department. During the tech-themed program, the teenagers competed against each other by working in teams to solve various riddles, puzzles and combinations to “break out” of the Teen Boulevard.

Playing Dress Up “I like when you dress up in your little costume,” Karen said. That hurt. Costumes are for thespians, and I’m 100 percent guy. I was stunned and more than a little annoyed. After all, it’s not like I had a Zorro cape on – I wear that on Thursdays. It’s not like I had a tutu on, though I do have a pair of ballerina slippers – only because the hard toe makes it easier to kick a football. She was referring to my Rotisserie Baseball League draft. Yes, I wear the same thing every year, but I prefer to call it my uniform. I have my custom made Scarlet Fire jersey with my old high school number, 12. I have the matching puce and cucumber cap and yes, I really do

wear wrist bands. I also buy new sneakers every year. This time around I chose the Nike Air Foamposite. It’s one of the gaudiest pieces of footwear on earth, which I’m sure will intimidate the other guys. Hopefully no one will steal them off me before I get to the draft. “Those are ugly colors,” Karen said. “They are my team colors,” I told her. “You don’t have a team,” she said cruelly. “You’re the only one on it.” I was going to point out I had numerous fantasy wives before I met a real woman but I decided that was best kept as my little secret. Every year the same scene plays

Sunday morning. He got out of the truck okay, but the vehicle had to be pulled out. Monday’s rush hour was a little more rushed for some commuters after a truck hit the North Main Street trestle in East Hampton just after three that morning. As happens when the low overpass it struck by a vehicle – a frequent occurrence – officials from the LIRR and MTA had to come out and inspect the damage before trains could get back on track. East Hampton Village Police were kept busy last week with complaints about the doings at the train station. Observers called in reporting a guy sleeping behind a hedge, another guy sleeping in the station, and some more fellows drinking inside the station house. In one case cops found a man lying down with a blanket over his head. He said he was just resting and went on his way.

Also in Riverside a local man was charged with a fistful of misdemeanors after he was pulled over for speeding near Ludlam Avenue Sunday night. His ID card was revoked, and police say there was crack cocaine and a billy club in the car. Misdemeanor charges relate to possession of a weapon and a controlled substance.

harbors. While nitrogen pollution from antiquated household septic systems is fouling our waters, County Executive Bellone’s Reclaim Our Waters initiative is reason for optimism. Fast tracking innovative technologies and facilitating funding support, Suffolk is demonstrating its commitment to clean water.” Like Esposito, McAllister believes success relies on community participation. To that end, officials

will embark on a series of town hall meetings designed to educate homeowners about the new program. The first one will be held on the East End, at the David Crohan Community Center in Flanders on Monday, April 24 (time to be announced). In the meantime, the county executive urged residents to contact the Suffolk County Department of Health Services by emailing septicdemo@ suffolkcountyny.gov  with any questions they may have, including about eligibility requirements.

out (though I’m not a thespian). She sees me packing the truck for my two-day trek to Albany. “It looks like fun! I want to go!” she says as the liquor, Nachos, cooler, cape (you never know) and assorted paraphernalia gets loaded up. I try to explain that when we hit Maggie’s Sports Bar there will be hundreds of guys just like me (but none with puce Scarlet Fire jerseys) running on sheer testosterone looking to, figuratively speaking, rip the eyes out of their league mates, in a mano-a-mano day-long process during which hearts will break and tears will be shed. (But I’ m not a thespian, I’m not!) Part of the deal is we have to order lunch, a condition Maggie insists upon in return for the use of the draft rooms. It is during the ordering process that we, as men assert ourselves. The first guy orders a King Burger, rare. The next guy gets the Double King with cheese. The next guy gets the Triple. Then we start piling on bacon and cheeses of all kinds. Last year I had the Triple, rare, with extra bacon, American cheese (is there any other kind?) and liverwurst. The next guy ordered his liverwurst rare. That’s the way we roll. When I proudly cleaned my plate I announced my new nickname:

“The Annihilator.” “You should call yourself the Annoyinator,” one long suffering league member smirked. “Have another kale salad, loser,” I responded tenderly. I’ve been running this baseball team for 30 years, and I have the trophies to prove it. Did I mention I am the defending champion? Yes indeed, I am clearly a leader among men. Hell, I could have been a Marine Captain, except I can’t do push-ups. Hey, I was almost in the Armed Forces, except I checked “lesbian” on the application form at the draft board, even though I was a latent heterosexual at the time. “Promise me we’ll go somewhere together next time you get a couple of days off,” Karen said. “Well. I have a Fantasy Football Draft in Atlantic City at the end of August,” I said. Oops. I didn’t mean to let that cat out of the bag. “And I can go?” Karen asked hopefully. “Of course not! There are no girls in Atlantic City.” “How about we go somewhere next week?” Karen countered. “I can’t. I have an important game,” I informed her. “The team needs me.” I hope she doesn’t get mad when I ask her to clean my uniform.

Southampton Schools The Southampton UFSD Board of Education announced the appointment of Jaime Bottcher as principal of Southampton Elementary School, effective July 1, 2017. Ms. Bottcher has been serving as interim assistant principal at the elementary school since November. Prior to joining Southampton, she was an elementary English as a New Language teacher for 14 years and chair of the school improvement team in the Brentwood School District. Additionally, she is an adjunct professor of bilingual/

TESOL education at St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue. “In her short time here, [Ms. Bottcher] has demonstrated her commitment to students, teachers, parents and the entire Southampton school community,” said Dr. Nicholas J. Dyno, superintendent of schools. Ms. Bottcher holds a bachelor’s degree in linguistics, a master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and an advanced graduate certificate in educational leadership, all from Stony Brook University. She is currently enrolled at St. John’s University for her doctoral degree. After serving for eight months in an interim capacity, Julio Delgado has been appointed by the Southampton School District Board of Education as the permanent assistant superintendent for instruction, effective immediately. In this role, Mr. Delgado’s prime focus is to improve achievement for all students, increase participation of the underrepresented population in all academic areas, and create programs, policies and procedures to close the achievement gap. Prior to taking on his current role, Mr. Delgado was the district’s coordinator of student achievement. Before coming to Southampton, he served as an administrator in a number of school districts across New York, most recently as director of student services in the Greenburgh Central School District. He began his career in education as a school psychologist in the City School District of New Rochelle. He is also an adjunct professor at LIU Riverhead.

Eye On Education By Dr. Dominic Annacone

Educational Leadership Recently there has been media commentary about the importance of a principal’s impact upon a school’s instructional effectiveness. I would take this one step further and suggest the school superintendent has the potential to have an even greater impact. Superintendents have the power and position to initiate and refine instructional programs and make that function central to their job description. Educational leadership is not the same as program management. Making sure the buses run on time, drawing up school budgets, involvement in building construction projects, public relations strategies, etc. are important, but they’re not the same as instructional leadership that has the primary focus on student learning. What’s being taught (curriculum), how it’s being taught, the way those factors affect student learning, and all the related programs that generate student activities and teaching methodologies should be a central focus of chief school administrators. School district policy manuals contain many of the rules and regulations districts must follow to meet state mandates. In many cases, these are minimal requirements that can be expanded by school districts. These policy manuals should be reviewed, amended, and updated on a regular basis. Teacher contracts also somewhat proscribe aspects of the instructional program. Any contract stipulations that short-change student learning should be the targets of a district during renegotiation sessions. Here’s a short list of instructional areas to probe by chief school administrators to possibly strengthen instruction and learning: - Length of school day and school year: The school day is six or seven hours a day and 180 days in the

school year. The USA has one of the shortest school calendars among industrial nations. Every attempt should be made to increase instructional time for students. - Special Education Programs: State and federal laws have done a good job in mandating programs for students with disabilities. I haven’t heard or read much of anything in local districts about providing special programs for gifted students. The gifted student population should be identified in terms of what qualifies the term “gifted.” Specific programs with specially designated personnel, curriculum, and class settings would be part of that program. - Programs for ESL and non-native students: Most school districts are experiencing an upsurge in students from other lands. They are providing ESL teachers and classes to help those students cope with their new settings and English language acquisition. It’s my opinion these programs can be expanded to adult members of that community especially after formal school hours. There should be special classes for our new community members to help them fill out forms, get to know the law, hear about other helpful community agencies, and, in general, provide a friendly Q and A opportunity on a regularly scheduled basis. This would assist those parents with guiding their children on school-related matters. - Current teaching and learning research: Superintendents have the responsibility to know the status of current curriculum research. What’s the latest on phonetic instruction, whole language, etc. and how does the district’s reading/ language arts program match up with that research? What’s the impact of core curriculum on school district teaching and learning and if the district is required to adopt its provisions, what are our

www.indyeastend.com

support programs for students and teachers? - District testing programs: The district’s testing policy should list all tests mandated and any others included by local decision. What are the tests? When are they given? How are results used and disseminated? Can parents opt out of the testing and if so, how? How, when, and where does the district publicize test results that are not included in the annual State School Report Card? (All tests should be diagnostic. How are test results being used to make improvements and have those responses succeeded?) - Retention and promotion of students: (A subject near and dear to my heart.) What are the criteria for retaining students in their current grade level? What research has the district done to validate retention of students? How does the policy stack up against the research that says retention of students doesn’t work and may even be detrimental to student progress? - High school graduation: What’s the current high school graduation rate and what’s the high school drop out rate? Find out those numbers and find out causes for each. Work

with other school personnel to come up with programs to address those problems. The objectives should be 100% graduation rate and 0% drop out rate. - Te a c h e r s : P r o v i d e t h e opportunity for teachers to supply input to your office with their ideas and perspectives on the school instructional program. Provide a forum to subject department and grade level teachers to report on their work at school board meetings by including them on agendas. This will provide some recognition for their work and let the community know that teaching and learning is alive and well in the district. I could extend this list but I’m sure current superintendents are more knowledgeable about contemporar y issues and can modify and improve upon these observations. I believe superintendents that recognize their critical role in the design and implementation of school programs concerned with what teachers teach and how and what students learn and are aggressively involved in the design and promotion of those programs earn the title of “Educational Leader.”

To Discuss Deepwater The Natural Resources Committee of the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons invites the public to learn all about Deepwater Wind’s planned South Fork wind farm at a program titled “Wind, a Clean Energy Solution” on Monday from 7 to 9 PM at Southampton’s Rogers Memorial Library. The panel of experts includes Doreen Harris, Program Manager for Large Scale Renewables at the NYS Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA); Michael Voltz, P.E., Director of Energy Efficiency & Renewables at PSEG Long Island; and Clint Plummer, Vice President of Development at Deepwater Wind. They will discuss Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Master Energy Plan and vision for off-shore wind projects; Long Island’s energy needs and how they can be met with renewable energy; and details, including installation, operation and costs, of Deepwater Wind’s planned wind farm in the Atlantic Ocean, 30 miles southeast of Montauk. The 12 to 15 turbines in federally-leased waters are expected to provide 90 megawatts of electricity to power more than 50,000 residences on the South Fork. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 PM before the start of the meeting. Southampton Town’s SEA-TV will be on hand to tape and air the program for later viewing on Channel 22. Reservations are recommended, by calling LWV Natural Resources Committee Chair Susan Wilson at 631-283-6549.

Games for East Hampton/ Bridgehampton/Pierson, Hampton Bays, and Westhampton prove to be difficult in a competitive Division 2. Nonetheless they continue hold their own against some of the division’s best. For a new team like East Hampton/ Bridgehampton/Pierson, coached by Jessica Sanna, chemistry is the key to a successful season. Seniors Grace Amaden, Lisseth Rodriguez, Katie McGovern, Jacqui Thorsen, and Alexis Yurkewitch have all come back to lead this young team that is 2-3 in their conference. “I am excited to take over the program at East Hampton. There is so much talent and skill here. The players work hard during the on and off season. My goal is to bring that all together,” said Coach Sanna. “Even though we are a young team, we are setting expectations high and are hoping to be competitive with every team.” On Friday East Hampton/ Bridgehampton/Pierson faced Mattituck/Southold at home, losing to the visitors 19-1. Mattituck/Southold, 3-1 in their conference, had 12 different players score throughout the course of the game. For East Hampton/ Bridgehampton/Pierson, Elizabeth

Bistrian was the only player to score. Goalie Nina Gonzalez tallied 3 saves. “She’s a new goalie but has really stepped up. In our more competitive games she’s been able to make 15 plus saves,” said Coach Sanna. East Hampton/Bridgehampton/Pierson is slated to play Westhampton on Monday away. Hampton Bays is 0-5 in division 2, but looks to make improvements throughout the rest of the season. Last Wednesday Hampton Bays played Miller Place (2-2), at home and lost 17-0. Although Hampton Bays didn’t score, their goalie, Colette Levine, had a fantastic afternoon with 15 saves. Hampton Bays is set to play Shoreham-Wading River, 2-1 in their conference, next Wednesday. Westhampton, 2-1 in conference, went up against Port Jefferson, 1-4, on Friday at home. They won 15-0 with 3 goals and 3 assists coming from Isabelle Smith. Ten different Westhampton players scored. Westhampton will play East Hampton/ Bridgehampton/Pierson on Monday.

Pierson, and Ross to make one team in Division 2 along with Westhampton Beach and Hampton Bays. The East Hampton/Southampton/ Pierson/Ross team is coached by Matt Babb of Southampton. Overall they are 1-3 with their first win last Friday against a Center Moriches team that is 1-5 overall. Their 8-7 victory boasted goals from freshman Luke Marro, sophomore Connor Rozzi, and junior Kai Parcher-Charles. Goalie Bradley Toole tallied 12 saves for the game. For Center Moriches all seven goals were scored by Keegan Maxwell. The game went into overtime with Marro scoring in the last 20 seconds of regulation which led to overtime. In overtime Marro scored in the first minute locking in the win. East Hampton’s Athletic Director Joseph Vasile-Cozzo spoke on the improving boys lacrosse team saying, “They are developing into a team that can hopefully be successful in the long run . . .

Combining schools has been proven to be difficult in the past but this team is working together better than we could have ever expected.” Seniors Bayron Alvarez, Charlie Bedard, Jack Brown, Chris Gabrielsen, Raymond Hippner, Chris Kayser, and Bradley Toole will lead the team into play against Hauppauge this morning. Hampton Bays, which is 0-3 overall, played Kings Park on Thursday in a not so impressive loss, 1-17. Patrick Gilbert scored the only goal for Hampton Bays whereas Kings Park saw eight different players score throughout the course of the game. Hampton Bays is slated to play Greenport/Southold/ Mattituck (2-3) this afternoon. We s t h a m p t o n B e a c h ( 2 - 3 ) hammered Greenport/Southold/ Mattituck last Friday, 18-5. Robert Moore was the leading scorer for Westhampton with four goals. Rob Kruszeski tallied 14 saves in the loss for Greenport/Southold/Mattituck. This morning Westhampton is set to play Eastport/South Manor.

Coast Guard Auxiliary News By Vincent Pica

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

Asleep At The Switch? Not On My Watch! Many of us are involved in long passages over the water. A ride out to The Canyons, for example, can take all day and night to and fro – and a long battle against a large pelagic fish would (hopefully) be in between. How do we manage our sleep time? This column is about that.

Quantity Or Quality Many sleep specialists will tell you that quality is more important than quantity. By quality, they mean you sleep enough to complete a number of distinct 90-minute sleep cycles that our minds and bodies require. Sleep specialists 90-minute sleep cycles into these phases: 65 minutes of normal, or non-REM (rapid eye movement), sleep 20 minutes of REM sleep (in which we dream) Final five minutes of non-REM sleep. If you can’t complete such a cycle, you aren’t having quality sleep and no matter how much quantity that

you get, you won’t be rested. Interestingly, sleep scientists now categorize sleep styles into 3 types: Monophasic – Like mom said, you lie down, sleep for eight hours (one big block of time), wake up, and start your day. Biphasic – Common in many Latin countries, biphasic sleep is two blocks of sleep in 24 hours, i.e. the night sleep and the typical Latin siesta. Polyphasic – Common in the animal kingdom (think about your house cat), this is sleep where you get many naps during the day such that you never feel the overwhelming urge to sleep all night long. Many famous people are believed by some to have been polyphasic sleepers – Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Thomas Edison and Winston Churchill, to name a few. Whether they were or they weren’t, as a non-scientist but a life-long mariner, I recognize polyphasic sleep as instrumental in watch-keeping on

long voyages with many tasks and a number of crew shifts to manage. At the other extreme, the alone-aroundthe-world races, I’m pretty sure that no one sleeps for eight hours when they are the only person on the boat!

Watches Aboard Ships At Sea On naval and merchant vessels, a “watch” is typically four hours. Traditionally, many private boat captains mirror this as they set their crew watches for long duration passages. This system has a couple of advantages. It's easy to remember and it's consistent. For example, a member of watch team #1 will only have to remember that he is on the "4 to 8" watch, and knows that he goes on watch at 4 AM and 4 PM. This scheme also allows inexperienced watchstanders to only stand watch from 8 to 12 AM and 8 to 12 PM, when senior watchstanders are likely to be awake and ready to assist in case of trouble. Since you are “on” for four hours in a 12-hour cycle, it would seem that you can easily get your eight hours of sleep that mom wants, no? No. Anybody who has been to sea knows there are always things that need doing that interrupt your plan for sacking out, putting aside such things as the excitement of the passage, the roughness of the seas or some mechanical breakdown that needs addressing. This gets directly

back to the top of the column. If you are getting quality sleep, the quantity won’t matter. So, deckhand, what should you do while Captain Bligh isn’t looking?

Keys To The Cat Nap A successful mid-watch nap depends on two things: timing and (no kidding) caffeine consumption. Experiments performed at Loughborough University in the UK showed that the sleep-deprived need only a cup of coffee and 15 minutes of shuteye to feel amazingly refreshed. 1. Right before you crash, down a cup of java. The caffeine has to travel through your gastro-intestinal tract, giving you time to nap before it kicks in. 2. Close your eyes and relax. Even if you only doze, you’ll get what’s known as effective microsleep, or momentary lapses of wakefulness. 3. Limit your nap to 15 minutes. A half hour can lead to sleep inertia, or the spinning down of the brain’s prefrontal cortex, which handles functions like judgment. This gray matter can take 30 minutes to reboot. BTW, if you are interested in being part of USCG Forces, email me at JoinUSCGAux@ aol.com or go directly to the D1SR Human Resources Department, which is in charge of new members matters, and we will help you “get in this thing.”
