Learn How To Become An Oyster Gardener! Have you ever wondered what oyster gardening is all about? Have you pondered what it takes to grow an oyster from a tiny seed to a plump and delectable half-shell? East Hampton Shellfish Education and Enhancement Directive (EHSEED) is a new oyster-gardening program in East Hampton. A reception and fundraiser for the program will be held at Bay Kitchen Bar Restaurant, Gann Road, Springs, on Saturday from 4 to 6 PM. The funds from this event will be used to purchase equipment needed by the East Hampton Town Shellfish Hatchery. The program, a pilot for 2016, will be limited to 15 participants, who will learn all about shellfish culture, including how to grow their own oysters in Three Mile Harbor, guided by aquaculture specialists from the hatchery. The oyster-gardening program will begin with lectures in May (Saturday, May 21, from 10 AM to noon) and June (Saturday, June 25, from 10 AM to noon), both held at the East Hampton Shellfish Hatchery in Montauk, followed on July 23 with oyster seed handouts (1,000 per member) and stocking into growing gear. The program will continue with a bi-weekly schedule of tending the oysters at the garden. In October, members will give back half their stock, which will be seeded in the harbor along with a match by the Shellfish Hatchery. The remaining oysters will be

THE LAUGHTER OF THE ’70s DIED ON SUNDAY

Did you ever know a man or woman who, the minute you saw or heard from them, they would bring a smile to your face? That was my good friend Jim Travis. All of us who knew and loved Jim aren’t smiling today. Jim Travis died on Sunday. Jim and I laughed and drank our way through more than a couple of decades. But it was the seventies that belonged to us. The no-rules seventies. The drink-and-laugh-all-night seventies. The sex, sex, and more sex seventies. The everything goes seventies. The guilt? Guilt? What’s that? seventies. It was the seventies that cemented our relationship. He was the smart, upstanding Midwesterner – Dennison Collegeeducated, who, try as he might, could not be serious. I was a wacky kid from Brooklyn who couldn’t believe his luck at stumbling into advertising. Jim Travis came to work at my

agency as a management supervisor in 1969 or 1970. I hired him after our second interview. Both of us had too much to drink on the first interview and couldn’t remember each other. Cooler heads brought us together again and I hired him after a “no drinking” second interview. There are a million stories to tell about Travis, all funny. Here’s one of my favorites: We had a product from Ralston called Piccadilly Circles (a frozen pizza English muffin). I thought I would get Abigail Van Buren, who at the time wrote “Dear Abby,” the nation’s leading advice column, to do a commercial. I met her at the Beverly Hills Hotel one afternoon. We sat in the hotel’s Polo Lounge. She said, “I’m show happy to be working on Phsshadilly Chirkuls.” I said, “Excuse me?” She repeated, “Phsshadilly Chirkuls.” Abby had a speech impediment. I had hired a woman who couldn’t pronounce the product name Piccadilly Circles. I was paying her $50,000. I started to sweat.

As I sat there contemplating losing the Ralston account, someone told me I had a call. In Hollywood style, they brought over a telephone. I knew it was Jim calling me from Chicago to find out if he should he fly out to L.A. or go back to New York. No sense in having him fly out, I thought, as there probably is not going to be a commercial. “How’s Abby?” he said. I was on the spot. I couldn’t say anything with Abby sitting next to me, so I decided to talk in code. I remembered we had a very busty woman working at the agency named Cathy Mitchell who had a similar speech impediment. “Jim,” I said, “this is VERY much like Cathy Mitchell.” “Oh,” he said. “Big tits. I’ll be right there,” and then he hung up the phone in my ear. Yes, Jim Travis flew 1,700 miles to see Dear Abby’s “tits.” You had to love him. Every day was fun. The agency was flying high. Drinking started at 4 and went on into the night. We opened an office in Los Angeles, and Jim Travis was president. He built the office into a great success. His phone calls from L.A. were hilarious. Jim: “Jerry, I’m interviewing a guy who has only one arm.” Me: “Hire him. Go back into the room and hire him right now.” Jim: “Why?” Me: “This way when we’re late on an ad we can always tell the client that we’re short-handed and we’ll be telling the truth.” Then Jim laughed out loud. I just loved to make him laugh.

IN THE NEWS

We spent many a happy night at the Beverly Hills Hotel Polo Lounge. It was there one night that Jim met the beautiful Martha “Marty” Gilmore, the love of his life. Marty has been his wonderful wife for 36 years. Then came the wake-up eighties and we all sort of had to grow up. Jim became president of my entire agency. In 1984 I suggested to Michael Deaver, Ronald Reagan’s right-hand man, that they hire Jim to head up the Reagan reelection campaign. Jim had the job of his life. He took a leave of absence from my agency and went to work heading President Reagan’s “Tuesday Team.” Jim put together an all-star creative team. He recruited writer Jim Weller and my partner Ron Travisano from the agency; Hal Riney from Ogilvy & Mather; and creative standouts Tom Messner, Barry Vetere, Ron Berger and many others. Under Jim’s direction they produced creative work considered by many to be the most successful presidential advertising campaign in histor y, highlighted by a television commercial written by Hal Riney titled “Morning in America,” which is a classic that all presidential commercials in the future should be measured against. We were all so lucky to know Jim Travis. By the way, he wasn’t “Jim” to us. We all called him “Uncle Jim.” Why Uncle Jim? Because we all need a sweet, fun-loving, decent guy in our lives who is more than just a friend — a special uncle. Uncle Jim wanted good things for us. He wanted good things for everybody he knew. And we all knew it and we all loved him for it. That’s why every time we think of him, the laughter of the seventies turns to tears.

Guilty Verdict In Cyril’s Trial After a three-day trial, a jury of six East Hampton Town residents found Clan-Fritz, Inc., the operators of Cyril’s Fish House, guilty of 45 of 47 misdemeanors relating to the illegal expansion of the Napeague business. The Honorable Steven Tekulsky will sentence the operator on June 20. Last week, Michael Dioguardi, Robert Dioguardi, and Debra Lakind, the landlords of the Amagansett property, avoided a trial by entering into a Stipulation of Settlement with the town, which imposes strict

limits on the use of the property, and agreed to a $60,000 fine. “The Stipulation of Settlement with the owners of this property and the 45 convictions of the operator validate the town’s commitment to enforce our public safety and zoning laws,” stated Supervisor Larry Cantwell. “The incremental but vast expansion of this premises was illegal and posed a threat to the public safety. The changes required by the settlement -- reinforced by today’s jury verdict -- will vastly improve the conditions at the property and increase public safety by limiting the occupancy at this location.” Terms of the settlement require that seating at the premises be limited to 62 seats: 26 interior seats and 36 exterior seats. The owners of the premises have also agreed that no more than 150 people will be present on the property at one time. All food and beverage consumption and service will be in designated areas contained either within the building or within a limited patio area. These conditions will be effective immediately. In addition to the seating and maximum-occupancy covenants, structural changes must be made by May 26. These include changes to the building, such as the removal of an outdoor bar that attracted patrons to stand on the shoulder of Montauk Highway. Further, a patio area and storage containers will be removed, and fencing and vegetative screening will be installed. The corporate operator of the premises, Clan Fitz, Inc., refused to enter into the settlement and invoked its right to a jury trial, despite the fact that operations at the property are bound by the Stipulation of Settlement, town official said. “The operators’ lack of cooperation will not impact the duties of the landlords to comply with the Stipulation,” stated Town Attorney Michael Sendlenksi. “The owners have assured us they will exhaust every legal avenue to make their tenant comply as the landlord faces significant penalties, including a $100 per-person fine for each and every person over the 150-person limit on the premises and a $100 fine for each table and chair over the allowed 62. In addition, this Stipulation of Settlement will be ‘So Ordered’ by the Court, so violating it will amount to Criminal Contempt of a Court order.” The landlords have filed applications for site plan approval for the modification of the parking areas also required in the Stipulation. The public hearing on the modifications is tentatively set for July 13, in front of the Town Planning Board. If approved, such changes must be implemented within 30 days.

Eye On Education By Dr. Dominic Annacone

The 100 Year-Old School Calendar As we approach June 2016, we await the closing down of formal public school programs. There will be the usual dismantling of millions of dollars worth of learning equipment, closeting of materials, and the dispatching of educational professionals and students to a “summer retreat” of two months or more. But more importantly, for most students it will be a prolonged disengagement from their intellectual development skills and for many there will be a regression of learning that will result in a loss of mastery because of this hiatus. The current public school calendar of 180 days is a throwback to the time we were an agrarian society and children were needed to work on the farms as an important part of the labor force. Obviously that’s not the case today and the current school calendar is not only outdated, it’s one of the main reasons U.S. educational progress is at a low level. How low a level? The recent highly respected National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) test results are proof of our nation’s students’ lack of achievement: READING:

Admittedly the school calendar year is only one of many factors affecting student learning, but it is an important one that needs to be changed. What would happen to athletes who spent only half the year training and competing? How much faith would people have in their physicians if they only practiced medicine and kept up with medical advances for six months and removed themselves from patients and new research and practices the rest of the year?

learning without long intellectual “vacation breaks.” It’s surprising that the general public isn’t up in arms because of the abbreviated school year resulting in the waste of taxpayer dollars spent for schools, equipment, and all of the other costly program components, outgrowths of school budget expenditures. Are there businesses that close down factories 50 percent of the time and “mothball” their equipment and work force? If there were, I doubt such industries could survive. Non-use of places of operation and equipment would be considered a wasteful policy, and so is the current practice of school scheduling that is archaic and counter-productive to improving educational progress in our nation’s schools.

Ross Perchik, Clamshell Founder

Rossetti Perchik, creator of the Clamshell Foundation and its wildly popular annual sandcastle contest, founder of the Great Bonac Fireworks, Rotary Club Person of the Year for 2010, and beloved Lions Club member died early Saturday morning after succumbing to lung cancer. Funeral arrangements are under the supervisor of Yardley & Pino Funeral Home. As of press time, no details about services were available, nor was obituary information. Check our website www.indyeastend.com and Facebook page for updates. In the interim, The Independent recalls conversations with Ross about the contest and the fireworks. Three quarters of a mile of beach. Four hundred participants,

innumerable spectators and over $37,000 for charities including more than 1000 holiday turkeys to local food pantries. Those were just some stats that made Perchik proud. He reported them to The Independent in 2009, noting that in 17 years his annual sandcastle contest on the beach in Amagansett had become a summer staple. Perchik formed the Foundation during the early 90s. He’d worked for an architectural firm in Tulsa and hoped to replicate a similar contest held on the banks of the Arkansas River. “I thought it might be a fun thing to do,” he remembered in an interview in 2006. So did lots of other people. In fact, the contest’s debut drew such a crowd that police had to close

down Bluff Road and Atlantic Avenue to accommodate the volume of spectators and participants. Over the years scads of local businesses offered support to the event. In turn, as of the 2009 interview with Perchik, the Foundation had given away $16,000 in environmental scholarships to East Hampton High School students, plus over $20,000 to such local organizations as Toys for Tots, the Red Cross, Nature Conservancy and Town Trustee shellfish programs, among others . . . Not too shabby for an organization and a contest that is 100 percent volunteer run, giving all of its profits to charities serving the local community and especially environmental projects. The Foundation also hosts an annual chili

contest, drawing those with a taste for fire to the American Legion for samples of chili crafted by community members. In 2008, just months before the annual Boys Harbor Fireworks Show in Springs, Perchik learned the show was not going to happen. Sponsor George Plimpton had died and Boys Harbor, the camp founded by Tony Duke and home to the annual Bastille Day show, was for sale. Interviewed in 2013 Perchik said he spent about a week trying to figure a way to keep the fireworks tradition going. “Then I jumped in head first . . . I naively thought, since I’d been doing sandcastle for so long, how bad could this be?” Putting a fireworks program together in weeks turned out to be Herculean tasks, one Perchik pulled off. And so the Great Bonac Fireworks was born and continued to thrive. In 2010 the East Hampton Rotary Club named Perchik its Person of the Year. The annual sandcastle contest was among the initiatives that support the designation. A summer staple, the contest has drawn hundreds of participants over the years and meant tens of thousands of dollars for local charities, including more than 1000 holiday turkeys donated to local food pantries. In a 2010 interview describing the Person of the Year honor Rotarian Rob Norrby said, to date Perchik had assisted in raising over $90,000 in an array of local grants given to food banks and in the form of scholarships to East Hampton High School seniors. “Mr. Perchik has been an important member of the community who has given much to improve the quality of life in the town of East Hampton,” Norrby said. Perchik characterized the honor as “pretty cool. I’m honored and humbled. It validates all the work over the years.” Perchik was a member of the local Lions Club. As word circulated on Saturday, a brother Lion offered, “I respectfully suggest for all Lions to reach out to your faith spot and look up softly, say out loud a word or two for what ever you believe that comfort and compassion surround our Lion at rest. “Rossetti Perchik, a very proud man a very proud Lion.” K.M.

The ceremony, held last week at the Suffolk County Police Academy at Suffolk County Community College, recognized law enforcement agents who made the biggest difference in their respective communities in 2015. Each department, precinct and/or command nominated an officer who arrested the highest number of DWI offenders last year from among their ranks. “It is extremely important to us that motorists who are driving while intoxicated are stopped,” said Bellone. “DWI tragedies don’t just affect those involved, they impact the families of victims as well. Suffolk County will not tolerate drunk driving on our roadways. We are committed to arresting anyone who chooses to drink and then get behind the wheel of a car, endangering the lives of others.” Suffolk County law enforcement agencies made over 15,000 DWI arrests in the past 3 years. The following East End officers were recognized as STOP-DWI top cop awardees: PO Steven Mcmanus from Westhampton Beach PD, PO Robert Hammel from Quouge PD, PO Ashley Jones from Southampton Village PD, PO Steven Niggles from East Hampton Village PD, Sgt.

Dealing With A Tick Allergy By Rick Murphy

Here is a hint: never, never look up a disease you think you might have in a medical dictionary. My wife Karen does this constantly, and all it does is make her worry more. No matter what the symptom Karen concludes the worst possible outcome. That is to say if she has an ingrown toenail she’ll find some disease and conclude she needs her foot – make that leg — amputated. I broke my rule after getting bitten by a tick a couple years ago, and what I read scared the hell out of me. Besides Lyme disease and

Babesiosis there is now Anaplasmosis and Powasson Disease. How serious are these diseases? Let me put it this way – they are higher on the list than the dreaded Rocky Mountain Spotted fever, which used to be the go-to disease caused by ticks, kind of the crème-de-la crème. Luckily, I don’t have a disease – I’m allergic to ticks. That’s the good news, I guess, except the little buggers can still kill me. I hate ticks, and I get bitten every year. It’s like clockwork - right around this time I plant my garden. I jump in the shower, knowing instinctively one of those little buggers is hidden somewhere on me.

Then at some point in the middle of the night I will feel the bite immediately. Then we go through the ritual of trying to find the tweezers from wherever we left them the year before, dose the bug with iodine, remove it, and flush it down the toilet. Then Karen convinces me the thing didn’t have time to infect me and I go back to bed, but within minutes I start getting incredible itchy and my skin welts up all around the bite. Obviously, I am allergic to ticks, and after consulting the medical dictionary; I learned there are at least five tick-borne diseases that can kill me. Luckily the folks at WikiHOW have a web page entitle “How To Kill A Tick.” I am not making this up. Method One is “Fire.” The instructions state, “Ask someone close to you to strike a match” and

then “Hold the tick in the fire using tweezers.” Method Two? The toilet, of course. “Wrap the tick in a tissue but don’t tape it because you shouldn’t flush tape down the toilet.” Thanks for that. Really, though, I don’t want to turn the destruction of the offending tick into an arts and crafts project. Rest assured though, that “once you flush the toilet you will never see the tick again.” That’s a relief. Method Three? Microwave. Place the tick in a re-sealable baggy and place in microwave. After 15 seconds “there should be a noticeable pop or pff.” That would be the soul of the tick hopefully ascending into heaven. How to get rid of a tick after it kills me isn’t really much concern to me. It’s getting rid of them before they strike that matters. This is why they wanted to shoot all the deer, of course, because they carry ticks. So do mice, so I still don’t understand why the local governments don’t have mice traps set all over. Then of course, there are the wild turkeys whom I’m told are tick carriers. What else is in the giblet gravy? All of these things disturb our quality of life out here, and understandably so. Another annoyance out here is helicopters, or more specifically, the noise. At least they can’t suck the blood out of you, so there is that. I don’t think we should cull the deer, though. I think each of us should be responsible for the ones that we come in contact with. NOTE TO SELF: DON’T PUT DEER IN MICROWAVE. I wouldn’t want to flush a deer down the toilet, so I’m having deer fencing put around my yard. I can’t keep all the ticks out, but I can keep the deer out. Then I can hunt down those pesky mice one by one. Turkeys can fly, so there is that concern. However, we have a socially acceptable way to keep the turkey population in check — it’s called “Thanksgiving.”

have non-specific symptoms (like fatigue, pain, and joint and muscle aches) after the treatment of Lyme disease as having post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS) or post Lyme disease syndrome (PLDS).

While the term is sometimes used to describe illness in patients with

How To Remove A Tick Once spotted it’s important to remove a tick and dispose of it effectively before it can put the host in even more danger. Ticks will burrow into flesh when they realize they have been detected. Iodine kills ticks. Though there are other household remedies like nail polish or apple cider vinegar, for example, that do the trick, iodine is lethal and does the job quickly. Soak a cotton ball with iodine and apply it directly on top of the tick and keep it there for a couple minutes. Then, use tweezers to gently coax the tick out of the flesh –including the head. Flush it down the toilet. Put disinfectant on the bite, and when that dries, apply antiitch medicine if needed. If hives or a rash form you may need to see a doctor. Lone Star nymphs, like chiggers and other mites, burrow into the skin and are more difficult than ticks to remove. Permethrin kills them. Ask a pharmacist about special ointments to ease the itching and discomfort. Chiggers are more difficult to get rid of. Covering the bite with nail polish, calamine lotion, or Vaseline or most anything else may help the pain and itching, but will neither suffocate the chigger nor help the bites heal any faster. DEET has been proven to kill mites but should be used only as directed. Sulfur is commonly used as a repellent by using it in shoes and on trouser legs. Of course, it may me a moot point – many experts have concluded there probably aren’t any chiggers in this neck of the woods. All this time we have been mistaking Lone Star larvae for chiggers. R.M.

Lyme disease, in many occasions it has been used to describe symptoms in people who have no evidence of a current or past infection with B. burgdorferi. Because of the confusion in how the term CLD is employed, experts in this field do not support its use. Indy: There are people who can’t even walk due to Lyme, There are rare cases of fatalities. What happens in these cases -- is it a case of just a severe allergy? Dr. Beard: Nine documented cases of death due to Lyme carditis have been reported in the medical literature. Lyme carditis occurs when Lyme disease bacteria enter the tissues of the heart. This can interfere with the normal movement of electrical signals from the heart’s upper to lower chambers, a process that coordinates the beating of the heart. The result is something physicians call “heart block,” which can be mild, moderate, or severe. Heart block from Lyme carditis can progress rapidly. Untreated, Lyme carditis can lead to death. Most Lyme carditis patients receive antibiotic treatment for 14 to 21 days. Most symptoms are gone within one to six weeks. Neurologic Lyme disease symptoms are varied and can include facial droop on one or both sides of the face, nerve pain, shooting pains, numbness, or tingling in the hands or feet, or problems with short-term memory. These symptoms typically resolve with antibiotic treatment as well. Indy: What, if any, are other courses of treatment for Lyme? Dr. Beard: Antibiotics are the only treatment for Lyme disease. Sometimes, the symptoms will take

a few weeks or months to resolve, but research has shown that additional antibiotics carry risks of side effects without providing significant benefits. Indy: There is a theory Lyme originated at the Plum Island Animal Research Center. Dr. Beard: The Plum Island facility was constructed in 1954, in an effort to safeguard against diseases that could damage the U.S. livestock industry. Research indicates that the bacteria that cause Lyme disease existed in the U.S. long before the facility was built. Specifically burgdorferi (the bacteria that causes Lyme disease) has been found in museum specimens of mice and ticks from Massachusetts and New York as early as 1894. An illness with Lyme disease-like symptoms known as “Montauk knee” was recognized on Long Island early in the 20th century as an ailment that affected the knees and caused a rash.  Lyme disease was formally recognized in the 1970s as a bacterial

disease in humans spread by ticks. The ever-increasing numbers of ticks and Lyme disease cases are thought to reflect changing land use patterns. Farmland has changed back to forest during the past 100 years. During this time, numbers of deer and white-footed mice, the primary hosts for Lyme disease, increased. Coincidentally, the changing land use patterns occurred at the same time that the Plum Island facility began operation, but the two are not related. If you have additional questions we encourage you to talk directly with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Indy: What species of ticks carry Lyme? Dr. Beard: Of the many different tick species found throughout the world, only a select few bites can transmit disease to humans. In North America, blacklegged ticks (Ixodes scapularis) aka Deer Ticks, and Western Blacklegged ticks (Ixodes pacificus) are the two species of ticks capable of transmitting Lyme disease.

Police said he was stopped on Flanders Road for failure to maintain his lane (we used to call it “weaving”). Police said they surmised he had been drinking excessively. It got worse for him: Police said subsequent search uncovered cocaine, and that Aguilar-Alvarez didn’t have a valid license. It all added up to a felony DWI charge, a felony count of criminal possession of a controlled substance and aggravated unlicensed operation. Then it was off to a cell to await arraignment.

Town Busts Overcrowded House, Credits Rental Registry Law

By Rick Murphy

East Hampton Town raided a longtime illegal group house Wednesday, arresting two residents on unrelated criminal charges and nine residents with a total of 39 code enforcement violations. The owner of the property, at 105 Springs Fireplace Road, the Leslie Cooper Life Estate, was also charged with 39 counts. The town raided the house repeatedly over the years, including last year, and it has been on the Code Enforcement radar for years. Nonetheless the town was quick to trumpet its new Rental Registry Law, which went into effect May 1, as an impetus to raid the premises. The raid was conducted by the Town’s Code Enforcement Department jointly with the East Hampton Town Police. The house in question has been a source of numerous complaints dating back to 1989, and neighbors and watchdog groups have repeatedly brought up illegal activities to the town, most noticeably regular volleyball games that attracted as many as 30 cars to the property. In fact, the town has raided it on an almost annual basis since 2011, well before a Rental Registry Law was even being contemplated. Nevertheless town officials crowed after the bust. “The landlord’s failure to go through the process and register their rental property put all the tenants at risk,” said Town Supervisor Larry Cantwell. “ Pe op l e who k no w a l l th e background facts may not simply agree this was an unqualified success story and a sterling example of how the Town executes on its promise to promptly investigate and prosecute dangerous overcrowding housing violations,” one critic who asked not to be identified said. Allegedly, the owner repeatedly pays small fines, gets slapped on the wrist, and continues business as usual. Though the property is not in Springs, the Springs Concerned Citizens have had it on their watch list for some time and notified the town of the obvious violations often. A neighbor filed an official complaint about volleyball games

that were attracting “up to 30 cars parked on the property in 2011” and the town filed almost two dozen charges against the Leslie M. Cooper Life Estate shortly after. The owner eventually entered a plea of guilty to four of the charges and was fined by Judge Catherine Cahill a total of $1500. A Conditional Discharge Order was also entered, allowing for reinspections during the next year to insure compliance. On May 12, 2012, the Ordinance Enforcement Department conducted a re-inspection pursuant to the Conditional Discharge Order.  They found the basement bedroom had not been removed and another room in the basement was in the process of being built; the door leading to the Bilco door was blocked ”so if people had to get out they could not,” there were missing and non-working smoke detectors, and a lined volleyball court for which there was no building permit. Numerous charges were filed again: the estate pled guilty to 10 of the charges, and Cahill imposed a total fine of $2050, and a new conditional order was entered allowing for further re-inspections during the next six months. On March 18, 2015, a concerned citizen filed a complaint with the OED alerting it to the fact that the subject property had a history of housing and building code violations, two prior justice court proceedings, but still did not have any Certificate of Occupancy. The ordinance inspector assigned to handle the complaint went to the house at 5:30 AM and found seven vehicles on the premises overnight,

whereas only four are permitted at a non-owner occupied, rental residence. Another complaint was filed by a neighbor alleging more than 10 cars parked at the subject property and people were “sleeping in

vehicles” a month later. An inspection on April 1, 2015, resulted in more charges being filed; On June 15 Judge Lisa Rana imposed a $250 fine to settle the matter. Two residents were arrested last Wednesday, one for violating an Order of Protection and another who is wanted on a DWI charge. The nine residents in the latest bust, as well as the landlord, face many of the same charges leveled years earlier including overcrowding, not having a building permit, not having a Certificate Of Occupancy, which apparently has been the case since 1989. Other charges included excessive litter and debris, improper use of extension chords, and numerous related charges – as well as one count of not having a Rental Registry number.

THE INDEPENDENT • Traveler Watchman

By Rick Murphy

RICK’S SPACE I’m With WhatsHerName I used to call older women “dear” when I was a young man. The image conjures up a gray or white haired little biddy, purse on arm, perhaps carrying a tote bag of groceries. “Can I help you with that, dear?” “Oh, thank you. What a nice young man you are.” Yes, I was. The other day I caught myself using it again – to some young woman at the deli checkout. “Thanks, dear,” I said. I then realized, as I get older, the women I call “dear” get younger. There had to be a spot somewhere in my life then, when I was the same age as “dear.” Plotting the graph, checking the sine and cosine, and extrapolating the lines, it must have been around age 36 the last time someone called me a “dear.” The last guy to call a babe a broad and get away with it was Frank Sinatra. Back in the fifties babes dug that. They could even be “Toots” as

in, “Toots, can you freshen up my drink? Thanks, babe.” Back then men chain-smoked. They not only drank, they drank real booze. No wine. No spritzers. No light beer. They had it on the rocks, or they had it neat. They ate meat, and lots of it. A typical meal was roast beef, mashed potatoes with butter, and frozen peas and carrots. And, the Little Lady made sure she had a cake with plenty of chocolate frosting, too. Women themselves were viewed as a pleasing dessert. They were called “Sweetie” and “Sugar.” No one ever called a woman “Essential Soluble Fat” or “Monounsaturated Liquid” even if they ate a lot of their own cake and thus weren’t Little Ladies anymore. As far as I knew women didn’t even go to the bathroom except to pretty up. To this day women always go to the bathroom in pairs — if one says she has to go, another will say, “want me to come

with you?” I find that odd. If I go to the bathroom and a friend says, “want me to come with you?” I’m going to answer “no” quite emphatically. The primary function of sex during the 1950s was to have children, especially if you were Irish. Our neighbor Mrs. Lynch had 12 kids, one each year. That means she was pregnant nine months of the year. She was essentially, a giant blob of Hydrogenated Fat for the better part of her adult life. It was awkward to introduce a girl to someone in public. “This is my girlfriend Cindy,” you’d say. One of the guys would say “Wow, man I didn’t know you two were going steady,” and then Cindy would humiliate me by saying something like “Oh, we’re not going steady – we’re just good friends.” The worst thing that could happen to a guy – worse than leprosy, worse than having six fingers and toes, was to be a girl’s “good friend.” A “good friend” has no chance of ever having sex. Eunuchs could be friends. Dwarf Eunuchs. “This is Rickey, my web-footed dwarf friend.” “She’s a gorgeous piece of tail?” the guys would say. What did that mean? Was she like, a peacock? Did they mean tail like a serpent has,

IN THE NEWS

like the devil? “She’s a piece!” That meant, apparently, a really hot girl. A piece of what, though? Cake? What if she was a piece of crap? Are they saying my new girlfriend is ugly? That she’s an ugly girl with a tail? Back then no self-respecting young lady wanted to be intelligent. Intelligent girls were prudes. Bookworms. They not only wouldn’t let a guy get to first base, they wouldn’t let him even go to the ball game. They drank milk at beach parties. I liked them dumb. And no, contrary to what most women think even to this day, men don’t need someone they can talk to. Back in the day Misty and me didn’t spend a great deal of time debating the hidden meanings of Shakespeare’s more obscure sonnets, if you get my drift. It was really too bad Misty was still in the fifth grade when I went off to college because I really liked her, even if she was older than me. When we were hippies we would refer to our girlfriends as “My Lady.” As in, “This is My Lady.” it took me all this time to realize unless her name is Guinevere or Maid Marion that sounds really dopey. From now on skip the introductions. Just say, “I’m With WhatsHerName.”

Due to these findings, health officials ask residents not to use or swim or wade in these waters and to keep their pets and children away from the area.  Though blue-green algae are naturally present in lakes and streams in low numbers, they can become abundant, forming blooms in shades of green, blue-green, yellow, brown or red. They may produce floating scums on the surface of the water or may cause the water to take on paint-like appearance.   Contact with waters that appear scummy or discolored should be avoided. If contact does occur, rinse off with clean water immediately.  Seek medical attention if any of the following symptoms occur after contact: nausea, vomiting or diarrhea; skin, eye or throat irritation; or allergic reactions or breathing difficulties. To report a suspected blue-green algae bloom at a body of water that contains a Suffolk County permitted bathing beach, contact the Suffolk County Department of Health Services’ Office of Ecology at 631-852-5760. To report a suspected blue-green algae bloom that is in a body of water that does not contain a Suffolk County permitted bathing beach, contact the Division of Water at New York State Department of Environmental Conservation at 518-402-8179.

Above, Sister Margaret Smythe with Joy Flynn, president of the Southampton Democratic Club.

Sister Margaret Smythe of the North Fork Apostolate was the special guest of the Southampton Democratic Club on Saturday. Discussing the state of relations with the East End Hispanic population, she noted things haven’t improved all that much since she started her ministry 20 years ago. Directed to a tiny office with nothing but an ancient printer, a water machine and two metal desks, Smythe was left alone to figure out how to set up and operate a center for assisting immigrants. While the population continues to struggle with pursuing citizenship, finding affordable, legal housing, and accessing health care, Smythe listed an array of initiatives that have been implemented over the last two decades – all begun humbly. Left to her own devices and with no guidance, Smythe began by finding Latino community members anywhere she could. She struck up conversations with people in the grocery stores, asking “What do you need?”

Insight

• 75 percent of high school seniors in New York State have used alcohol. • 24 percent of high school juniors and seniors engaged in binge drinking during the past two weeks • One in 10 teens say they have driven under the influence of alcohol during the summer. • 22 percent of seventh to 12th graders have smoked marijuana. • 5 percent of students in grades seven to 12 have used a prescription pain reliever non-medically. With graduation and prom season on the near horizon, on Monday Governor Andrew Cuomo launched a campaign designed to remind parents and kids about the dangers of underage drinking. New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services Commissioner Arlene González-Sánchez was at Riverhead High School to officially launch Cuomo’s Talk2Prevent campaign. The campaign urges parents and guardians to have regular, open discussions with their kids in advance of milestone events. Let them know just how dangerous drinking and driving can be and underscore the lethal consequences that can arise from underage use of alcohol and illegal use of drugs. The Talk2Prevent website includes pre-prom and graduation prevention strategies. Locally, RHS offers bus rides to the prom and hosts a “red carpet” photo op . . . nobody wants glassy eyes on the red carpet. And no parent wants post-prom tear-filled eyes. So let’s talk to the kids, and be sure to model responsible behavior.

Independent VOICES

Support Trophy Ban

Dear Editor, New York’s proposed “Cecil’s Law,” which would ban “trophies” from lions, leopards, rhinoceroses, and elephants, shows that the state shared the disgust that the rest of the world felt upon hearing that beloved lion Cecil suffered for nearly two days before finally succumbing to his injuries, all to become a trophy in Walter

Palmer’s den. Much of the megafauna in Africa is threatened. National Geographic’s Dereck Joubert estimates that there are only about 20,000 lions left in Africa. Just 50 years ago, there were 450,000 — a 95 percent decline. Trophy hunters, usually American, kill about 600 of these lions every year. They also kill about 5000 leopards. There are only 50,000 left. The current population of African elephants is about 300,000, and up to 40,000 are killed every year. It isn’t hard to see that at this rate elephants won’t be around much longer.

By Ed Gifford Passage of Cecil’s Law would protect threatened species and make a strong statement that such cruelty is not welcome in New York. MICHELLE KRETZER The PETA Foundation

Is it just me? Happy Mother’s Day to the best mother-in-law in the world.

How will having a woman as President make a difference? Part III: The Girls

Continued from page 21.

Samantha Schurr It will show that women have come a very long way.

Vote is Tuesday, May 17, at the Southampton Intermediate School. Many, many things have gone awry over the past 18 months or so in the district, that the taxpayers know about, know partially about, or do not know at all. The BOE has not been transparent or forthcoming on many disturbing issues, even though their constituents and others have implored them to do so, time and time again. On other matters their actions or inactions have not been representative of the majority of the community whom they were elected to represent. If you are displeased, show your displeasure at the polls. That will get their undivided attention for sure.  For example, according to the BOE, only one appraisal was used to value 300/310 Hampton Road. Whose appraisal was it? The sellers’! Sound real estate practices would have three impartial appraisals, especially when you are entrusted with public monies. For this reason and many more~ VOTE “NO” ON PROPOSITION #3~ the proposed purchase of 300/310 Hampton Road! JOAN TUTT

Karen Pilco Yes it will make a difference. I’m not sure about exactly how it will make a difference but men are always elected President so I’d like to see it change and see how it’s different. It might make everything much better. But I’d like the chance to see it. Ina Brisman It will be the first time in this country that we have a woman for President. I would really like that. I’m not sure how that might be different but she might make different rules than a man would make.

Rose Littman I don’t know what the difference would be but if it does happen I think we’ll see after some time passes. Maybe not until she’s been in the White House for a year or two.

The folks at Wittendale’s are all over how to care for hanging and potted plants. Here’s a rundown of what to do: Make sure your pots have drain holes! This may seem easy enough, but according to some workers at the East Hampton locale, “you’d be surprised” at how often this is overlooked. Always check to see if your containers need water. Sometimes plants can wilt due to hot sun, but still retain excessive moisture and may not need more water. Check the soil moisture in your containers using your finger if you are unsure whether watering is necessary. Give the plants enough water that the water runs out through the drain holes. This way the entire root system has received a good, thorough soaking. L a s t l y, a n d m a y b e m o s t importantly, “resist the urge to water everything.” More often than not they don’t need it. Got questions? Call up Wittendale’s at 631-3247160 or pop by their location at 89 Newtown Lane in East Hampton.

Southold Loses, Clings To Lead By Rick Murphy

Southold’s bid to finish the regular baseball season undefeated ended Thursday at the hands of second place Mattituck. Not that it was much of an upset. The Tuckers, playing at home Thursday, have won 11 of 12 and are one of the hottest teams in Suffolk. The Settlers did not go down easily. The game went to extra innings but in the bottom of the ninth Victor Proferes, batting with two outs, laced a single to score Joe Tardif with the winning run as the home team prevailed 6-5. Proferes had perhaps the best day of his career, going 3-3 at the plate and recording the win on the mound. Tardif had three hits in four trips to the plate. Mattituck is 11-2 in league play and 13-2 overall. The next day the Settlers had to

go on the road, this time to Babylon, and dropped another game 2-0. The Panthers got brilliant pitching from Sean Flynn, he bested Greg Gehring, who gave up both runs in the first innings and then matched goose eggs with the winning pitcher. Southold dropped to 15-2. The Settlers were scheduled to finish the regular season yesterday and expect to be the top seed in the upcoming Class C County tournament. Mattituck plays Smithtown Christian on the road tomorrow. Win or lose, the Tuckers look to defend their New York State Class B championship and are expected to earn the top seed in the County B tournament. Both Mattituck and Southold will be playing Monday against an opponent yet to be determined.

Complete bracket information should be available tomorrow on the Section 11 (NETPLAY) website. Southold will have to get by a very game Pierson/Bridgehampton squad in the tournament. The Whalers have won seven of eight and are currently 10-4 in League VIII. They close out the season tomorrow at Center Moriches. Southampton is hanging in there. The Mariners took down Stony Brook 7-1 Thursday to improve to 7-6 in league action. The locals, playing at home, got a solid pitching performance from Andrew Wesnofske, who hurled a four hitter while striking out seven. Ragan Soledad went 3-for-4 with two ribbies and scored twice. Danny Beckman went 2-for-3; Johnny Navan also drove in two runs. It was a critical victory for the Mariners

(7-6). They were to play at Southold yesterday after deadline and get Port Jefferson at home tomorrow. First pitch for that game is slated for 4:30. Westhampton is making a determined push for a playoff berth. Playing with their season on the line, the Hurricanes came through big time last Thursday, crushing Amityville at home 10-0 to even their League VI mark at 8-8. Nick Arpino was masterful on the bump, hurling five scoreless innings, allowing only three hits while striking out six. Sam Kaplan and Finbar Smith provided the offensive fireworks, combining for six hits. The locals play Rocky Point today at 4 and on the road tomorrow, also a 4 PM start. They are hoping for a berth in the Class A tournament.

East Hampton T-Ball The East Hampton Kiwanis Club T-Ball leagues will commence Saturday morning at 9 AM. Boys and girls ages five through eight are eligible – registration will be before the first game at John Marshall Elementary School field. The program runs for six weeks and there is no charge to play – the program is free. For more information call 631-324-7414.

Hampton Bays Goes Forth By Rick Murphy

A sudden increase in high school enrollment thrust the Hampton Bays softball team up into League VI and forced the Baywomen to compete in Class A. No problem. Consider Hampton Bays the little East End school that could – could move up in class and defeat rivals from much larger schools. Intimidated? Hardly. The locals reeled off a five game winning streak to end the regular season and await the first round of the playoffs Tuesday against an opponent to be determined. And oh yea, the last three games? The Baywomen prevailed by a combined 27-0 margin. Hampton Bays ends its regular season today at Comsewogue. It all starts with Marley Tyler on the hill. She hurls shutouts like she is picking daisies on some tropical island. Then there is the offense. Thursday, in a 7-0 demolishing of Shoreham-Wading River, Mackenzie Tyler and Laura Zaweski did their best impression of a two-gal wrecking crew, going a combined 4-7. Tyler tossed a nifty three hitter. On May 2 it was East Hampton’s turn to take a pounding. Hampton Bays, playing on the road, was on the top end of a 13-0 final. Tyler hurled a one-hitter and fanned 10. Shelby Hughes went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBIs. Katie Picataggio did her one better, going 4-for-5. She also scored three times and drove in two runs. Westhampton, also in League VI, is on the playoff bubble. The Lady Hurricanes lost a heartbreaker to Miller Place Thursday, 11-10 to even up their league mark at 8-8. A game at Rocky Point today may well decide if the locals make the Class A playoffs. Southampton has hung tough during a trying season in League VII

but Friday the perseverance proved worthwhile – the locals edged Mercy 9-5 and clinched a berth in the Class A playoffs. Sam “No Hit” Wesnofske didn’t bring her best game but hung tough, allowing five hits and striking out eight. Barbara Pace knocked in the tying run and scored the winning run. Thursday the locals absorbed a 13-1 shelling in Hampton Bays. Southampton moved to 10-8 and

finished its regular season against Pierson yesterday. Mattituck, a disappointing 8-9

in League VII, played Port Jeff yesterday; a victory would put them in the playoff conversation.

Team Wrestles Up Funding

The Westhampton Beach Varsity Wrestling team presented a check to the Live Your Cor Foundation. Pictured (l-r) are Assistant Coach Pete DeTore, Holly Hubbard and Ralph Hubbard of Live Your Core and Assistant Coach Ethan Mitchell.

Over the past wrestling season, the Westhampton Beach High School varsity wrestling team raised money to support two organizations, the Live Your Cor and the Lustgarten foundations. Through a pin-pot fundraiser, the student-athletes collected $1300 for the Live Your Cor Foundation, which was created in memory of Westhampton Beach wrestler Cory Hubbard. The organization assists families affected by personal tragedy and also provides scholarships to Westhampton Beach students. This is the second year that the wrestling team has held a pin-pot fundraiser for the foundation. Last year, the wrestlers locked in $2000 in pledges for pins made during matches. In addition to raising money for Live Your Cor, the wrestlers raised $900 for the Lustgarten Foundation, which supports pancreatic cancer research. The funds were donated in the name of Jina Tanzman, the mother of wrestlers Alex and Matt Tanzman, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2013. This is the fourth year that the team has raised money for this organization through the sale of their purple T-shirts, which are adorned with the initials, “JT” on the sleeve.

On The Water Plenty Of Fish Despite this week’s wet weather there were still plenty of fish caught. Stripers between 16 and 30 inches are being caught in the back bays and creeks. Most are using small rubber baits on a 3/8 or 1/2 ounce lead head and small bucktails. The Shinnecock Canal has also come to life this week. Weakfish, fluke, and some sea robins are jumping on the hooks in there. The word from the canal is that the fluke that are being caught and released are keeper size and are very thick. The ocean beaches and the inlet

remain quiet for the most part, but a few schoolies have been caught. The Ponquogue Bridge seems to be the best producer of keeper bass so far. Guys are using a chartreuse 6-inch Gulp jerk shad on a 3/4 ounce lead head. The Peconic over at Jessup’s Neck is holding a good amount of porgies, as well as weakfish, fluke, and a couple of flounder too. Capt. Scott Jeffrey East End Bait & Tackle 170 East Montauk Hwy.

Coast Guard Auxiliary News By Vincent Pica

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

I have GPS – So Who Needs a Compass? We’ve written about GPS, the wonder of the 21st (really 20th) century, many times. It is truly one of the simplest yet most powerful aids to navigation ever invented. And it just keeps getting better and better. So, who needs a compass? You do. This column is all about that.

A Candle Held Where? What if I told you that the signal from the GPS satellites reaches your boat with the intensity of a candle – held in Los Angeles while you are in New York? Yes, that’s how it is designed. So, what happens if the weather really becomes foul? You can lose your GPS signal, that’s what! It takes a lot because of the redundancies built in but it can happen. I know it, firsthand. And if you have to leave your boat due to emergency conditions, are you going to rip your GPS out of your dashboard and take it with you into the raft? No. As a matter of fact and of safety, right next to my compass, which sits above my in-dashboard GPS system, is a handheld, old

fashioned compass. If I leave that boat, the handheld compass comes with me.

Magnetic North Pole? Most of us have seen diagrams or pictures of magnetic waves, just like those that come out of household magnets, coming out of the North and South Poles, encircling the Earth. The iron core of the Earth spins at high speed and creates this magnetic field. Of interest, the magnetic forces don’t emanate from the top of the world, i.e., the true North Pole. Right now, the “Magnetic North Pole” is just north of Hudson Bay. When George Washington was leading the United States, Magnetic North was near Norway. If you look on any paper chart for the “compass rose” it shows in the very center what is called “Variation”, i.e., from the area that the chart covers, what is the angular difference, i.e., Variation, from True North to Magnetic North. Here, it is 14-degrees west, i.e., your compass points 14-degrees too

far west at Magnetic North versus where True North lies. This means that when your compass is pointing to Magnetic North, you would turn the boat 14-degrees to the east (014-degrees) to be pointing to True North! BTW, this is interesting – but largely meaningless since all compasses sold above the Equator point to Magnetic North. But it is important to be aware of Variation.

What Is Deviation? Frankly, more important than Variation to the average boater is Deviation. Deviation is the sum of all the forces within your boat that keeps your compass from pointing to Magnetic North. What? Case in point: a number of years ago, I was doing USCGAux vessel exams at a local marina when one skipper came up to me and asked me if I could look at his compass because it wasn’t working properly. Now fixing an errant compass is a relatively complicated process that requires specialized hardware. But away I went with this skipper to see if I could at least isolate the problem. We stepped on his boat and, just before taking his seat at the helm, he removed his wallet from his hip pocket (which held his police badge within) and placed it next to his compass. While he was fumbling with the boat keys, I literally watched his compass clock around and point at his wallet/police badge! I asked

him, “Skipper, why do you put your wallet there?” He said, “It kills my sacroiliac if I sit on my wallet!” I said, “Keep your eye on your compass while I move your wallet.” As I lifted it away from the compass, the compass clocked back and pointed to Magnetic North. “You fixed my compass!” No, I simply removed a source of Deviation. Metallic objects (or magnetic objects like radio speakers) near your compass will “fool” your compass into thinking that that object is Magnetic North. How can you tell what the Deviation is of your compass? Well, if you have a GPS, it will be easy – all you need is mile or so of calm water and you can run down the rhumb lines of the four cardinal points and record the differences between what the physical compass is reading from the GPS course you are running. Of interest, Deviation “deviates” differently at a given compass course so you need to check at least the four cardinal courses (when we develop our deviation tables for new boats, we measure at least 16 compass headings.) You need to know what your boat’s compass Deviation is so that, if you do have to use your compass in lieu of your GPS, you can compensate appropriately. Over enough distance, even a degree or two can add up to significant differences. If you don’t have a GPS, it is a bit more complicated but it can be done. Get your paper charts out, mark a rhumb line between two points that lie at a given magnetic course between each other. Run down that line and record what your compass is reading versus what your paper chart told you the compass should be registering. The difference is Deviation.

My GPS Has Failed And I Don’t Have a Compass! Well, happily for this sorry skipper, there is a way to create a crude compass with a watch if you find yourself in such a state. Simply point the hour hand at the sun. Halfway between the hour hand (the sun) and 12 on your watch lies South. If you know where South is, you know where North, East and West are . . . Don’t have an old fashioned watch? Draw one and line it up as if it were on your wrist. It works! 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, and the folks there will help you “get in this thing . . .”
