New Home Uncertain For Bay Street By Emily Toy

“Our goal is to stay in Sag Harbor, but the bigger goal is that Bay Street survives.” That’s what Tracy Mitchell, executive director of the not-for-profit theatre company, said to a crowd of over 200 people at last Thursday night’s discussion at the Long Wharf location. Mitchell, along with co-artistic director Murphy Davis, was joined by the theatre’s board members Independent/James J. Mackin and stressed their desire to stay in their beloved Sag Harbor, which has With Bay Street Theatre officials expressing a desire to stay in Sag Harbor, the Old Sag Harbor housed Bay Street for the past 20 Industries building on Jermain Avenue is a rumored destination.

“We could negotiate for another extension on the lease,” said board chairman Frank Filipo, “but it’s not sustainable. We’ve been agonizing over this for the past five years and arguably since the beginning. Kicking the can down the road isn’t going to work anymore.” Mitchell and Davis explained that their current arrangement with landlord Pat Malloy, combined with the cost of housing for cast and crew and the cost of renting a storage space in Riverhead for building sets, would add up to about a half a million dollars by next year. According to Mitchell, that number would increase every year. “In addition, this amount hurts our fundraising efforts and qualifications to receive many of the grants we apply for by not having a permanent home,” she said. During the discussion, Mitchell, Davis and other board members reviewed options, both in and out of Sag Harbor. The Sag Harbor options included a joint collaboration with Pierson High School for shared use, the Sag Harbor movie theatre, the parking lot on the corner of Long Island Avenue and Bridge Street owned by National Grid (where the “Blue Ball” used to be) and a property on Jermain Avenue across from Oakland Avenue. None of the options are fool proof. Zoning, water, parking, traffic and other expenses could add problems to any location. Jane Holden, a Sag Harbor resident and board member, was enthusiastic about the potential offered at the Jermain Avenue property, owned by the Schiavoni family. Holden explained the asking price for the property is $2.5 million. The 14,000 square foot building sits on five acres of property. Holden also added that patrons could be shuttled from Main Street to the Jermain Avenue property, keeping the relationship between downtown Sag Harbor and the theatre alive and well. “You could house all interns, you wouldn’t have to rent a space in Riverhead, you could do things with the school, it has parking and it would keep Bay Street in Sag Harbor,” she said. Peter Solow spoke about having Bay Street join forces with the Sag Harbor school district, adding that losing the theatre is going to have a psychic effect on the community as well as an economic one. “Bay Street is as essential to the community as the school is,” he said. The loss of Bay Street could mean a devastating blow to Sag Harbor’s economy and culture. CONTINUED ON PAGE 25.

Is she just going to tell me something that will amuse me? Or did she trip and is she dangling off the side of our staircase in danger of plunging four stories down and I should run as fast as I can to save her? “Jerry! Jerry!” she repeated again, with the same sound of urgency. “What? What?” I screamed. Then she said, “There’s a book I want you to read.” OK, it was about a book, so I realized she wasn’t in some kind of danger. “What?” I said, trying to hear her. “There’s a book I want you to read.” This was followed by silence. One minute went by — now another minute went by. “Judy! Judy!” I called out. I could hear her on her computer. “JUDY!!” I finally screamed. “What?” she said, annoyed at the sound of my voice interrupting her, as she had gone on to another subject. “Judy, you just told me there’s a book you want me to read, but you never told me the name of the book.” “Oh, yes,” she said. “There’s a book I want you to read. It’s called Driven To Distraction.” “Oh,” I said, “and what’s it about?” “It’s a book about A.D.D [attention deficit disorder].” “Why do I have to read that?” “Because I think you have an attention deficit disorder.” I swear this is true; I can’t make this stuff up. She forgot mid-sentence to tell me the title of the book and went off to another subject, and she thinks I’m the one who has an attention deficit disorder. Finally something that truly depresses me. She wins again. If you wish to comment on “Jerry’s Ink” please send your message to jerry@ dfjp.com or visit indyeastend.com and scroll to the bottom of the column.

Newsman Remembered Following Fatal Crash By Kitty Merrill

“Dick always had just the right words to put it in context.” On “CBS Sunday Morning” this week Charles Osgood memorialized colleague Richard Threlkeld, who died Friday morning following a car crash in Amagansett. He was 74. Threlkeld reported “the very first cover story on the very first edition” of “Sunday Morning” in January of 1979, Osgood informed. Sunday after Sunday for three straight years he reported the cover story for the weekly news program, filing 108 stories in all. In footage from the show’s 25th anniversary celebration in 2004, Threlkeld spoke of striving to tell big stories, like the nuclear accident in Three Mile Island, and the little stories, like the return to his old high school in the Midwest “in a different way.” One of the last reporters to make it out of Saigon at the end of the Viet Nam war, Threlkeld mesmerized viewers in 1970 with a gripping “foot soldier’s eye view” of the war. He joined “CBS Morning News” as a co-anchor in 1977. By then, Osgood said, he’d already acquired a lifetime of experience and “an unmatched way with words.” The East Hampton resident -- he lived in the Barnes Landing section – covered the first Iraq war in 1991, where he witnessed the collapse of the Iraq army first hand when a group of soldiers surrendered to the CBS news team. He covered Patty Hearst’s trial, Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination and Gary Gilmore’s execution. Threlkeld moved over to ABC news in 1981, covering stories as the national correspondent for “ABC World News Tonight” until 1989, when he returned to CBS. He served as Moscow correspondent during his final years with the network, and his book, Dispatches From the Former Evil Empire, was based on his experiences there. Born in 1937 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Threlkeld grew up in Barrington, Illinois. He graduated from

Ripon College in Wisconsin and earned a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University. After retiring from CBS in 1998, Threlkeld and his wife Betsy Aaron, also a retired CBS news correspondent, “traveled the world, lived and loved life to the fullest,” Osgood said. In addition to his wife, he is survived by two daughters, Susan and Julia, and two grandchildren. As of press time, police were still investigating Friday’s fatal crash. The accident at the intersection of Montauk Highway and Abraham’s Path Friday morning re-routed rush hour traffic and closed a section of the road near the Brent’s parking lot. Threlkeld’s Mini-Cooper collided with a Peterbilt propane tanker driven by Earl Fryberger Jr. of Coatesville, PA. He was not injured. According to police, Threlkeld was traveling north on Cross Highway and the tanker truck was headed east on Montauk Highway at the Abraham’s Path/Montauk Highway intersection at 8:18 AM when the collision occurred. Threlkeld was taken to Southampton Hospital via Amagansett Ambulance and pronounced dead by ER personnel. The impact drove the Mini into the split rail fence bordering the American Legion in Amagansett, and emergency responders used heavy rescue equipment to remove the car’s door and extricate the victim. Both vehicles have been impounded for safety checks. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

An article in last week’s paper about LTV misstated the amount the company owes to Suffolk County National Bank for a mortgage on its Wainscott building. It was about $284,000 at the end of 2009. The figure was misstated due to a typo and read $2.84 million in some editions. The Independent apologizes for the error.

And The Academy Award Nominees Are . . .

(The Ides of March) fighting for a spot. We’ll take a flyer on Fassbender.

Quality wise, it was just OK. No film captured the heart and soul of critics, and there were no mega hits that grossed zillions. Still theatergoers flocked to the summer blockbuster films and the big name stars proved people will still pay to see them, and that’s a good thing.

It’s been a good year for Hollywood – not great mind you, but 2011 proved people still enjoy going out to the movies, even if there are more and more ways to see movies elsewhere.

Paris, which may be the big upsetter of the evening come February. Moneyball, The Descendants, The Help, all are probable nominees. That leaves Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two, J. Edgar, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy to fight it out for the last two spots. We think Tattoo may have some legs. Loud, released late, is gaining momentum.

Best Actor George Clooney (The Descendants) is the front-runner. Leo DiCaprio (J. Edgar) has peaked. Brad Pitt (Moneyball) is a contender, as is Jean Dujardin for The Artist. That leaves Gary Oldman, for his performance in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Michael Fassbender (Shame), and Ryan Gosling

Best Actress Viola Davis has emerged as a favorite for her stunning perform a n c e i n The Help; Glenn Close has received a lot of love from critics (Albert Nobbs). Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady) has been better but she always gets a nod. Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin) is another academy favorite, as is Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn). We think young Rooney Mara, sensational in Dragon, might sneak in, possibly ahead of Swinton. Want a long shot? Comedies don’t historically do well in these categories, but everyone loved Kristen Wiig in Bridemaids.

Another Pierson Intel Semifinalist

By Kitty Merrill

Sam Miller is “the complete package,” according to his teacher Dr. Robert Schumacher. He’s been named valedictorian of Pierson High School’s Class of 2012. He plays forward on the Sag Harbor school’s basketball team. And, like more than a half dozen Pierson students before him, he’s been named a semifinalist in the prestigious Intel Science Talent Search. Long Island traditionally produces more winners in the national contest – 61 semifinalists this year -- and Pierson claims bragging rights as the only East End school to consistently produce semifinalists. Miller’s project builds on a theme Schumacher introduced to his students in the late 1990s -- that certain molds have properties that could have medically beneficial attributes. The 17-year-old Sag Harbor native worked independently to isolate a compound found in spongias scoriosa that demonstrated the ability to fight infection and could be used in the development of new antibiotic drugs. As his project summary points out, “The increase of multiple-drug resistant infections is becoming a significant health problem for the world’s population. Now more than ever, it is important

“It’s a pretty fun job,” he said. He’s the son of Shirley Ruck and Bill Miller of Sag Harbor. Finalists will be announced on January 25. Miller said he likes the idea of coming up with a new medicine that fights infections. But he wasn’t spending a lot of time dwelling on the upcoming finalists announcement last Friday afternoon. He had a game. According to the Intel website, the Intel Science Talent Search is the nation’s most prestigious pre-college science competition. Alumni of STS have made extraordinary contributions to science and hold more than 100 of the world’s most coveted science and math honors, including seven Nobel Prizes and four National Medals of Science. The Intel STS recognizes 300 students and their schools as semifinalists each year -- pulling from 1,744 applicants in 2011 -- to compete for $1.25 million in awards. From that select pool, 40 finalists are then invited to Washington, DC in March to participate in final judging, display their work to the public, meet with notable scientists, and compete for the top award of $100,000. Since its launch in 1942, the competition has recognized over 3000 high school seniors with over $4 million in scholarships. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

tists at the University of Mississippi. Many of the Long Island schools that produce Intel scholars devote substantial resources to making the grade. At Pierson, Miller’s used to being part of a “little school that could.” He’s a member of the robotics team that places in an island wide competition each year, without the backing from corporations that other schools enjoy. Beyond sports -- he also plays soccer -- and studies, Miller works at Computer Professionals in Wainscott.

By Rick Murphy

RICK’S SPACE Narrowing The GOP Field I don’t pretend to know much about politics, and I don’t care about politics at all. A lot of people presume I am a Republican, which is wrong. I was a hippie, more of an anarchist than anything else. I believe I should pay no income tax, no property tax, and no sales tax. I further believe the rest of you should pay my share. In fact, the government should give me a stipend every month, even if they have to take the money from starving children. I have nothing against Mitt Romney. I like him. I liked his dad, First Base Glove Romney, as well. (His Mom, Spike, was a little overbearing, but whatever.) It has always amazed me that two tiny, insignificant events shape the future of this country every four years. That would be the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary. Consider the caucus, which isn’t

even a poll. No one really knows what a caucus is excepting to say it takes place in a closed room. People have sex in closed rooms, they go to the bathroom in closed rooms, and they caucus in closed room. Ok, now I get it. A handful of Iowinkians offered their preference – probably written on toilet paper – and all of a sudden Romney was a step away from the White House. There were unbelievable consequences. Michelle Bachmann and several other good candidates quit the race as a result. Now I ask, rationally speaking, how can a few dirt farmers from Iowa decide the fate of the next president of the United States? Who among us can honestly say we’ve been to Iowa? Who knows where it is? (I do, because I had the magnetic map puzzle of the 50 states when I was a kid and Iowa was the lime green piece near the middle.)

I’m convinced the Ioweenies -- or are they Iowakunubes -- like Romney because he’s a Mormon and if he’s elected we’ll all able to have five wives who look like movie stars like the guy on TV has. The funny thing is, as far as I can surmise he is a Mormon from Michigan who was the Governor of Massachusetts. Did he drive a covered wagon across the country to get to the East Coast? Mormons aren’t allowed to use electricity, right? Which brings us, of course, to New Hampshire. I believe if you are from New Hampshire and marry someone from Iowa you have a Mormon baby, but I may be wrong about that. The kid might be Amish. New Yorkers have an odd relationship with New Englanders. We adjoin Connecticut, so we understand they are snooty wannabes who can’t decide whether to talk like they are from the Bronx or Boston. Then we have Massachusetts, where the people talk like they live in Amish country. Then we have Vermont, a place God built for people from New York and New Jersey who like to ski. Quick, think of one thing New Hampshire is noted for besides pudding -- the presidential primary, of course. Once again, we have a handful of weird people given an enormous amount of credibility and

weight even though in the overall scheme of life it makes very little difference what people in New Hampshire say or do. As the results poured in the other night we heard stuff like “with 83 percent of the vote counted Romney leads with 34 percent.” This meant he had about 14 votes by midnight. Please don’t call me a Newt Gingrich apologist. That man will never be president. When I think of people named “Newt” I want to give them a noogie, give them a wedgie, and then take their milk money. Now it’s on to South Carolina, which is south of the real Carolina. The only time we go to South Carolina is to stop at a motel on the way to Florida. Who cares what a bunch of Gamecocks think, anyway? I don’t see why the big boys -- New York, California, and Texas -- don’t have their primaries earlier. If we did, no one would care about what seven guys in a barbershop in Iowa think, or who some guy who lives in an A-frame in New Hampshire and roots for the Yankees and the Red Sox thinks should be our next president. Did I like Bachmann? Ok, I admit it. Now I’m throwing my support – all of it – to Sarah Palin. Why? It’s simple -- she’s Number Two on the Babe-O-Meter. Someone asked me what her positions are. I’d like to find out.

Gerard Drive Breached . . . Again

By Kitty Merrill

East Hampton Town officials deployed to Gerard Drive in Springs last Thursday morning, responding to yet another causeway breach at the environmentally super sensitive area. According to Supervisor Bill Wilkinson, winds at high tide pushed the water over the causeway, bringing with it “a ton of debris.” Logs, gravel and timber obscured the view of the road beneath the wash as of noon – “You can’t see if the road is broken apart,” he

observed. Town highway department personnel were first tasked with clearing the road. Next, they worked to establish a shoulder. There were few families in residence at the time of the breach. According to the supervisor, town staff pulled a couple that was “literally up on the roof of their car” to safety. Another resident who was contacted decided to ride it out until the water receded. Wilkinson praised highway staff

on Thursday afternoon. “We’ve got a good crew. They know what to do.” More rock product was brought in to stabilize the sides of Gerard Drive. “Rock on,” the supervisor quipped wearily. Highway Superintendent Steve Lynch said Monday, “We cleared a lot of sand off, and added rock along one side.” By five o’clock the road was completely cleared. “The guys all came together and we got it done,” Lynch said. The breach occurred, Lynch said,

because high tide raised the water above the height of the roadway. Lynch noted the road itself was not washed out as has happened in the past. He credited revetment work completed several years ago, noting it “really held up.” Still, Lynch said he’s mulling methods to mitigate the problem. “I have ideas for how we can slow this down so it doesn’t happen so often, every time we have a northeast wind.” kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Wilson Wants New System For Southampton Police

By Emily Toy

For the first time in recent memory, Southampton Town Board’s work session began on time last Friday afternoon, with an update on the town police department’s new records management installation. Chief William Wilson was on hand for the continued discussion of improvements to the police department’s records management system, something that hasn’t been done in over 20 years, he said. “The problem is that the current software is 20 years old and it’s very difficult to extract information,” Wilson reported. “We have to get the maximum efficiency out of personnel for this fiscal year,” he added. Wilson’s hope for this year is to install the new technology at the police headquarters, holding off on the complete installation until next year. The complete installation of the software, which would include installing at headquarters, automated ticketing and mobile data hardware, along with training, consulting fees and data transfer would cost about $700,000, according to Wilson. The cost for what Wilson proposed on Friday, which means having the new system installed just at police

headquarters, would cost $250,000. That cost includes training, data conversion and software. It would also include a $70,260 maintenance fee. “We boffed at the idea originally because of the bottom line cost,” said Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst, “but this ultimately may be a saving in productivity terms.” By updating the town’s “antiquated” system, Wilson said that anything from filing arrests to handling impounding vehicles would be made much easier for the department. “It’s a holistic solution to everything we do as a police department,” he said. Installing the new software at police headquarters would include a visual-aided computer dispatch and automated fingerprint and mug shot machines. Jonathan Williams, a representative from IMPACT, the New York based company slated to provide Southampton Town’s Police Department with the new software, was available at Friday’s discussion to describe specifically what services would be provided and what options the town would have. Williams reported that installing

the new records management system at police headquarters doesn’t contractually bind the town to a full installation throughout the entire police department. “The Town of Southampton will be sharing records with eight other towns in the county,” he said. Currently the police department does a lot of double entry, Williams explained. With the new system, only one entry would be necessary, improving efficiency, he added. Wilson urged the town board to move forward on the proposal because it not only would cut down on paper and improve efficiency, it also has the potential to improve the safety of police officers. Southampton is the second largest police entity in Suffolk County, behind only the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office (the largest user of IMPACT in the county). By utilizing

the new data-sharing system, police officers could potentially run criminal reports from anywhere within their department, and ultimately have a better understanding of what they’re dealing with at the scene. “This would be a significant upgrade for us,” Wilson said. “This is critical for our day to day operations.” Wilson said that Southampton Village has been using the IMPACT system for years and it has improved efficiencies immensely. “I know that this will serve our needs well,” he said. “And if we go to another vendor, outside of the state, we’re back to being an island.” Wilson is scheduled to return to the town board at a later date, to discuss the installation process further and bring in other local IMPACT users for questions and comments.

EDITORIAL Hallelujah Finally, a school district exists that understands that changes have to be made if the public school system is to survive. The Springs School Board has decided to hire a part-time superintendent; a decision we hope will begin a trend on the East End. Nowadays, it’s in vogue to have principals for every building, and vice principals, and assistant principals, and even assistant superintendents. It’s a ridiculous trend that amply illustrates the excesses in the system – civilian school board members are no match for professional educators looking to pad spending, nor are they equipped to deal with the sophisticated teachers’ unions. It’s why spending has gone through the roof. Superintendents often served as principals in the old days. Certainly a tiny district like Bridgehampton doesn’t need a several highly paid administrators. There are many more districts out here that need to downsize their administrative budgets and return the money to taxpayers. The state has limited annual tax increases to two percent, a move we hope will lead to further reform, especially in the area of teachers’ tenure. In the interim, though, it is pleasing to see a school board that really seems to care about its students, and its taxpayers, and are doing some out of the box thinking to make the system work for all concerned. Bravo! If We May . . . We try not to toot our own horn but . . . last week’s edition of The Independent was a perfect example of why the other publications in town, print and otherwise, will never be able to duplicate us. For example, the drama that unfolded on Gann Road when a car went into the water, and the response by our emergency personnel was remarkable and worthy of front page reporting. But our competitors by and large ignored the bigger story, the remarkable life of the man who plunged into the water. A man is measured not by the moment of his death but by the

depth of his life. This was a man who fought for his country so valiantly that they made a movie about his fabled Army division. That was the bigger story. None of the other newspapers or web news providers realized that the two men arrested at a New Year’s Eve melee were former high school basketball stars in East Hampton. One man, Michael (Mikey) Russell, led the Bonackers to two consecutive Long Island Large School championships and trips to the State Final Four in Glens Fall. Since then, the young man had several brushes with the law and has done time in jail. Yes, it’s unfortunate – but its news, folks. It’s the job of the media to inform, not filter. All of our competitors have done stories on LTV of late, because East Hampton Town conducted an audit of the operation. None even scratched the surface; a series of insider-dealings that likely will attract the attention of the District Attorney and that puts the future of the public access television provider in serious jeopardy. Our competitors, as they did during the McGintee scandal, simply refuse to acknowledge the investigative work that goes on at this paper, literally preferring to ignore a story than admit their shoddy reporting overlooked key facts. This is but one of many instances. We revealed the plan to bring a floating liquid gas facility to Long Island Sound months before our competitors. We revealed the shameful practice of “retired” school superintendents hopping on the gravy train again -- double dipping, some for years. Most recently we revealed a star high school athlete was given a pass for committing what was called a hate crime – because his family had connections at the school. It happens all the time around; the powers that be bury their dirty little secrets, and the other publications refuse to dig for them, even in the shallowest of graves. Our readers deserve to know what’s really going on, period. We are beholden to no one, we fear no one, and we will not be silenced, though more than a few people have tried. Forgive us for being proud of our legacy, but shame on our competitors who participate in cover-ups rather than get to the truth.

achieve is for President Obama to be a one term president.”) McConnell is very upset that his targeted victim. President Obama has appointed former Ohio attorney general Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau without approval of the Senate, which was not in session; an appointment known as Recess Appointment.

McConnell says that President Obama’s appointment was a “power grab,” which, “fundamentally endangers the Congress’s role in providing a check on the excesses of the executive branch.” The Hydra of Lema is a Greek mythological many-headed serpent.

double talk emanating from the opposite side of the aisle. As for McConnell’s concern about Obama’s “power grab,” following is a scoreboard comparing the Obama grab to past gropings per year: Reagan: 240, Bush HW: 77, Clinton: 140, Bush GW: 171, Obama: 28. As our dear old liberal Mother Jones magazine put it, “Obama’s move seems less like a power grab and more like the proverbial 98-pound weakling taking a second to wipe the sand out of his eyes.” Dating myself a bit, I would add, “Come on Charles Atlas, please infuse a little dynamic tension into this 98 pounder and morph him into that legendary ass-kicking machine of yours.” Unfortunately it is the only language that these self-admitted Repubstructionists understand.

Fighting Facts Dear Mr. Murphy, Your article about Halsey Dickinson (RIP) was interesting, but filled with errors. The 1st Inf Div did not arrive in England until Aug, 1942, subsequently landing in North Africa in Nov 1942. Since the war ended in May 1945, a stay in Africa and Europe was little more than two-plus years, not four. The division was a good unit, but to call it “the most elite fighting unit of WWII” is a pretty long stretch and I cannot find any basis for that statement. The commander of German forces in North Africa was Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, not “George Rommel.” And while the 1st Inf Div did fight in North Africa, they did not go “Then to Algeria and Morocco.” Operation Torch, in which the 1st took part, started with landings in Morocco and Algeria, then moved to Tunisia and on to Sicily and Italy. I cannot tell from the article with what unit Mr. Dickinson served in 1st, but there was no such unit known as “Cannon” company. US Army Continued on page 14.

But I think this is a movie everyone will love. It has such emotional highs and lows! Debbie Skinner I enjoyed Moneyball. The Descendants might do well too. I’d like to see it get nominated for George Clooney’s sake. And I haven’t seen Midnight In Paris yet. But it’s next on my queue. I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about it.

Susan Pomerantz Best movie . . . I say Midnight In Paris. The Descendants is excellent. I think it will get nominated but I don’t think it will get Best Movie. George Clooney is great in it. I saw Moneyball. Brad Pitt is good but I think the movie is a bit lightweight.

But we appreciate your input. We were writing an obituary on the man with a few hours to go before deadline -- we weren’t doing a chronological history of World War II.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes Dear Rick, The Federal Government has grown and matured into a sloth, the slowest moving creature on earth. After two hundred years, the political system no longer works for “we the people,” the bureaucracy constantly impedes progress and action, and special interest groups from labor unions to the AARP care more about their “special interest” than the future of our country. The “change(s)” America needs is so monumental and urgent that it is difficult to see any light at the end of the tunnel. Just observe how difficult it is to fix problems like Social Security, a problem that almost all agree needs fixing. The last time we were in this position, we had a revolution. The “people” came

to the conclusion that unless they got involved, nothing would change. I hope that in coming to that same conclusion today, we “the people” can come together and force change without a revolution. Yet a revolution is not totally out of the question, fair reader, for it may end up being the only light at the end of the tunnel. BILL JONES

Windsurfer Survives Well, it was windy, and those are the conditions windsurfers like. Luckily, on Friday afternoon a Center Moriches man who fell off his windsurfer in Peconic Bay was rescued, thanks to the efforts of a host of emergency services personnel. At approximately 11:50 A.M., the Southampton Town Police Department received a 911 call from a subject who stated that a 65-year-old male was missing from his windsurfer in Peconic Bay and was drifting towards Shinnecock Canal. The Southampton Bay Constables, Southampton Town Police, Southold Town Police, the Suffolk County Police Department helicopter and the US Coast Guard were dispatched to search for the subject. At 12:22 P.M. the Suffolk Police helicopter observed a subject wearing a wetsuit standing in the water on a shoal on the northwest side of Robins Island. A few minutes later the Southampton Town Bay Constable boat, manned by Bay Constables Richard Franks and Albert Tuzzolo who had made their way to Robins Island were able to pick up the subject. At the time of the incident Peconic Bay was extremely rough with seas of approximately four to seven feet. The wind was southwest at approximately 25 mph with gusts to 45 mph. Peconic Bay water temperature at the time was approximately 40 degrees Fahrenheit. After being transported by the Bay Constables to the Robins Island dock in Southold, the victim, John A. Vanderwolf, age 68 of Center Moriches, was assessed for hypothermia by Cutchogue Fire Department ambulance personnel and released. K.M.

New EHGOP Leaders Elected The East Hampton Town Republican Committee held elections last Wednesday night, choosing Kurt Kappel chair, Tom Knobel vice chair and Carol Campolo secretary. Richard Gerardi will serve in the treasurer slot. Kappel, an attorney and husband of Town Justice Lisa Rana takes over for retiring party boss Trace Duryea. Duryea ascended to the leadership position in 2010 following the surprising resignation of then-chairman John Behan. Looking back on her stint at the helm she said via email this weekend, “It’s been great. Two winning elections and a wonderful team of helpers . . . might as well quit when we are ahead.” Knobel, readers will recall, was a town councilman who served during the 90s. He was subsequently elected party leader, and enjoyed a stint as town trustee. K.M.

Dorothee Miller, 78

Dorothee C. Miller of Quogue died December 20, 2011 at Stony Brook medical center after a short illness. Dorothee was a vivacious outgoing and very well loved member of the community. Jay Sears, a close friend of Dorothee who spoke at a celebration of Dorothee’s life at Jonesey’s restaurant December 29 said, “Dorothee was a beautiful shining light who traveled through life trying to break into song with “Let Me Entertain You” to make people smile and laugh.” In her younger years she worked as a fashion model doing TV and magazine work. Dorothee was also very involved with the airlines and married to pilots Charles Evans and Willie Miller. Bob Loevet was also a “long time friend.” Entering local restaurants Dorothee would “light up the room:” sometimes she’d break into song. Friends remember her generosity and her spirited calling card and New Year greetings. One of her favorite sayings was, “If you cant have fun and laugh going thru life, you better get off the bus. Dorothee’s loving and beautiful light shines on and will always be with us, said friends.

Play Bridge When defending a hand, new players are taught that they should not give declarer a sluff and a ruff. That is, they should not lead a suit that both declarer and dummy no longer have because the declarer can trump in either hand and get rid of a loser from the other. Like many other “rules” in bridge, suggested ways of playing may work well most of the time but NOT all the time. Today’s hand is a good example of when giving a ruff and a sluff is the only way to defeat the contract. The declarer in this hand played the ace and king of hearts, winning the first two tricks. He knew that all the hearts, except his own, had been played. Thus all three players, including his partner, were now void in hearts. West could also see dummy’s diamonds and clubs which were formidable. Even if partner held the ace of clubs, the defenders would win only three

tricks and declarer would make his contract. West’s only hope for another trick rested with the promotion of a trump trick for his team. He led a third heart and South was stuck. Having no useful discard from dummy, he could trump with the six or the king. If he trumped with the six, East would overtrump with the nine forcing declarer to use his queen, promoting a trump trick for West. If, instead, he trumps with the king or queen in dummy, West also has a sure trump trick. Many suggested ways of playing bridge work most of the time but not all the time. This hand is an excellent example of when following “the rule” about a ruff and a sluff is the wrong thing to do.

Another Victory For Town And Neighbors

By Kitty Merrill

The Appellate Division of State Supreme Court -- ahem -- cemented an earlier decision last week, bringing closure to an almost five year legal battle between the Town of Southampton and those accused of illegally operating a cement and gunite plant on Snake Hollow Road in Bridgehampton. In 2008, the town and neighbors of the illegal plant started parallel actions against David T. Schiavoni and his company, East End Concrete, and the property owners to stop the plant and remove the buildings and structures. The concrete manufacturing plant had been constructed without any permits or certificates of occupancy for any of multiple structures. The defendants entered into stipulations and orders to stop operations and all use of the rear of the property and, according to Eric Bregman, attorney for the neighbors, “Schiavoni promptly violated those orders.” They had been ordered to remove all sand, gravel, and aggregate at the site, park no more than five trucks overnight, and cease both the manufacture and transport of gunite or concrete at the site, remove all structures and cease any operations whatsoever. However, according to a May, 2010, court decision, “ . . . far from ceasing operations, defendants actually commenced new construction.” Reinforced concrete footings to support a

new (and unapproved) building were built, and the transport of concrete and gunite continued. The Court found the defendants “unequivocally” violated a slew of provisions in the stop operation orders dated September 2008 and February 2009. The Court issued an order finding Schiavoni and East End in civil and criminal contempt and the property owners in civil contempt, including fines and penalties and a conditional incarceration order if Schiavoni did not pay the fines. The defendants appealed. Last week, the Appellate Division, Second Department, af-

firmed the contempt order. An appeal by the defendants was dismissed, the prior order was affirmed and the costs awarded the town and neighbors. In September of 2008 Schiavoni and East End Concrete were ordered to shut the plant down. The decision notes plaintiffs presented detailed testimony and “numerous” photographs and documents that demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that “the East End defendants willfully and openly flouted the authority of the court” by continuing to operate after they’d been told to cease. “It was always the intention of

the Town to have the defendants cease their illegal operation of the concrete plant and bring the property into compliance with the Town Code,“ senior assistant town attorney Joseph Lombardo said Monday. “The actions of the defendants were, as found by Justice Baisley, in direct disobedience of his order to cease and desist. The Appellate Division has properly upheld his decision, and further, vindicated the stand taken by both the Town and the neighbors who were directly effected by East End defendants’ contemptible behavior.” kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Southampton Hearings For War Exemptions

Certain Southampton town residents might look forward to some tax relief next year. Town board members voted last week to set a public hearing for next Tuesday at 6 PM to decide whether or not to increase property tax exemptions for Cold War veterans. Currently under state and local law, qualifying residential properties can generally have up to $12,000 of their assessed value exempted from taxation. However, the New York State Legislature has since enacted a new maximum limit for those who served more than one year of active duty in the armed forces between September 2, 1945 and December 26, 1991. If the proposed amendments are adopted on the local level, exemption limits could increase to $54,000. In addition, where a Cold War veteran is determined to have a service-connected disability, he could enjoy an exemption of up to $180,000 of the home’s assessed value, rather than the current $40,000. If enacted, the new exemption increases shall apply to town assessment rolls prepared on the basis of taxable status dates occurring after the first of this year. E.T.

Jonathan Russo, fifth from left, with members of The East End Classic Boat Society, won the raffle for a new boat and trailer. The boat is a Sunshine Tender that was built at the Community Boat Shop in Amagansett during 2011 by volunteer members of the society as a fundraiser for the organization. The Society will now build a Swampscott Dory as a demonstration of how to build a small classic wood boat and also as a fundraiser for the not-for-profit organization. The East End Classic Boat Society welcomes new members, from beginner to advanced skill level. Membership is $35 for an individual and $45 for a family. Visitors are welcome to view the progress of the building of the Swampscott Dory at the Community Boat Shop on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 AM to 2 PM.

Hampton Bays Bridges Slated For Repairs

Independent/James J. Mackin

At least one Sag Harbor resident suggested Bay Street Theatre check on the availability of the former Rowe Industries building on the Turnpike, but it is currently leased out. Sources said the theatre’s desire for a long-term lease has stalled talks with its current landlord, Patrick Malloy III.

Bay Street

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4. “I understand how deeply we rely on the economic commerce in this town,” said board member, Sag Harbor resident and village business owner Greg Ferraris. “I understand the economic role Bay Street plays. The success of Sag Harbor has coincided with Bay Street,” he said. “It’s a not-for-profit, so it answers to you.” Ferraris added that due to incurred deficits over the past five years it would be “fiscally irresponsible” to go into another year under the status quo. Much to the chagrin of residents, board members and theatre management, Sag Harbor Village may very well lose its beloved theatre. Davis announced Thursday night that they received an offer to move into the old Parrish Art Museum on Jobs Lane in Southampton Village,

once the current occupants move to their new location on Route 27 in Water Mill. “The Southampton option is the most viable now, on paper,” he said. Other locations outside of Sag Harbor under review include the new Parrish Art Museum on Route 27 and an office park in Westhampton at Gabreski Airport being developed by Rechler Equity Partners. As the discussion came to a close, Mitchell, Davis and all board members urged Sag Harbor residents to come forward and show their support for Bay Street as they continue to further investigate their options. For more information call 631725-0108, or email to murphy@baystreet.org or tracy@baystreet.org. Emily@indyeastend.com

Last week, the Long Island Railroad alerted Southampton Town’s Citizens’ Response Center of three infrastructure projects in Hampton Bays. Extensive renovations to the Shinnecock Canal Bridge, which crosses above North Highway on the east and Canal Road West on the west side are required. Beginning this month, North Highway will be closed until Memorial Day while renovations are completed. North Highway may be reduced to a single travel lane as needed for construction activities from Memorial Day until the end of August. The Montauk Highway Bridge, a railroad bridge that crosses over Montauk Highway near West Tiana Road, is also expected to be closed from January to Memorial Day. It will undergo significant renovations and as a result, will experience temporary lane closures at certain periods, particularly for a period of three weeks in April. Flagmen will direct traffic during all times that a lane closure is in effect for both bridges. Beginning March 1 and lasting until October, Canal Road will be closed. As this will impact access to the recreational area, the LIRR has offered to meet with the Parks and Recreation Department to determine what effect this may have and will work with Southampton Town to mitigate the impact on the opportunities in the area, which may include necessary fencing and port-o-potty placement. For pedestrians, the Citizens’ Response Center assures that a safe, secure pathway on one side of both the Montauk Highway and North Highway bridges will be provided during construction and non-working hours. Pedestrians will be provided with a safe pathway on Canal Road West as well. For more information contact Thomas Neely, director of public transportation and traffic safety at 631-702-1950 ext. 1949.

MindedSports By Pete Mundo

Knicks Still Struggle With Team Concept It feels just like yesterday that Jim Dolan was milking Carmelo Anthony’s “Coming Home” (cue the Diddy song) with commercial montages all over the MSG Network. It’s been almost 11 months since Anthony and Chauncey Billups came to the New York Knicks in a three-team trade. Prior to the trade, the Knicks were 28-22. After the trade, they limped to a 14-18 record before being swept by the Boston Celtics in the first round of the playoffs. The 2011-12 Knicks supposedly added the final piece of their “Big Three” with center Tyson Chandler. Yet so far, they remain a .500 team. In total, since acquiring Anthony, the Knicks are a pedestrian 20-24. So where is the championship contending team Knicks fans were sold on just prior to the season?

The Knicks really had the Garden rocking for the first half of last season. The team was built around Amar’e Stoudemire, the first big-time free agent willing to join the downtrodden New York franchise. He was surrounded by “a team,” including Danilo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, Wilson Chandler, and impressive rookie Landry Fields. It was an incredibly likable team; a young group who had yet to reach their potential together. They were getting better as a group every day. Unfortunately, words like “together” and “group” have not, and do not apply to this post-Carmelo, Knick team. Talent-wise the Knicks have one of the best front courts in the NBA comprised of Anthony, Stoudemire, and Tyson Chandler. The three have

a combined 10 All-Star appearances, five All-NBA Second Teams, and one All-NBA Defensive team. So far this season, however, the chemistry has yet to develop between these three. Many felt that the Knicks woes last season were attributable to a new group of guys trying to blend. But 44 games into Anthony’s tenure, that excuse no longer works. Stoudemire has not been himself since trade rumors surfaced before the season packaging him to New Orleans for All-Star point guard, Chris Paul. The rumors confirmed that Anthony was the Knicks number one, which naturally stung Stoudemire; a trailblazer willing to take a chance on the poorly structured organization. The other issue with the front court is that Stoudemire, Anthony and Chandler are all isolation players. Anthony leads the team in assists with 4.3 per game, making him the creator instead of a finisher. As a team the Knicks are 25th in the league in assists with a paltry 18.3 per game. The Toney Douglas/Mike Bibby/ Iman Shumpert combination has not been the answer at point guard. While Baron Davis might prove to be the answer once he returns, hinging your success on a 32-year old point guard with a bad back isn’t a very hopeful feeling. Frankly, none of the leftover

IN THE NEWS

Knicks have performed better since the Anthony trade. Aside from Stoudemire’s struggles, Landry Fields has seen a decrease in field goal percentage, three point percentage, points and rebounds, and Toney Douglas has not been nearly as effective with the additional minutes. While no one expected the Knicks defense to resemble the Detroit Pistons from the late 80s, the offense was supposed to be strong enough to carry the load. Yet, through the early season the Knicks are 15th in points allowed, and only 18th in points scored. New York needs work on both sides of the ball. As we see time and time again in sports, most recently with the 2011 Philadelphia Eagles, the greatest individual talent does not always result in collective success. The rap on Anthony is that he has never been a great team player. In eight playoff appearances, Anthony’s teams have lost seven times in the first round. There are still nearly 50 games left for these Knicks to figure it out. But a playoff spot met by a first round ouster would not be a shock for this group. I wonder what song Dolan would use in his commercials then, The Who’s, “Won’t Get Fooled Again?” Pete is a lifelong Montauk resident and former sports talk host at 88.7FM WEER.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 with Marilyn), Nick Nolte (Warrior) and Christopher Plummer (Beginners) are expected to vie for the statue. Max Von Sydow (Loud) is coming on fast. Paul Giamatti (Ides) is also in the mix. Jonah Hill also deserves a nod for his role in Moneyball.

Supporting Actress Lesser known actors usually compete for this trophy, though a few big names lurk. Berenice Bejo (The Artist) Jessica Chastain (The Help), Janet McTeer, (Albert Nobbs), and Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) are the frontrunners. Melissa McCarthy, though, is getting a lot of love for her role in Bridesmaids and the ever-formidable Vanessa Redgrave (Coriolanus) always turns in Oscar-caliber work. Sandra Bullock (Loud) is a long shot with a chance. Octavia Spencer (The Help) won the Golden Globe in this category.

Best Director Almost always goes to the Best Picture winner. Right now it’s a close race between Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist), Bennett Miller (Moneyball), Alexander Payne (The Descendants), Martin Scorsese (Hugo), Steven Spielberg (War Horse) and Woody Allen. Our gut tells us this could be Spielberg’s year if Allen doesn’t surprise. Terrence Malick may slip in for his wonderful film, The Tree of Life. Screenplay Allen is a lock for the Best Original Screenplay Oscar. Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) will earn a nod. The Best Adapted Screenplay nominees should include Lee Hall and Richard Curtis for War Horse, Christopher Hampton (A Dangerous Method), John Logan (Hugo) and The group who wrote The Descendants, and Aaron Sorkin and Steve Zaillian’s Moneyball.
