Friends ‘GiveForward’ For Mark By Kitty Merrill

Charismatic and vivacious, a true Bonacker with a passion for music and a thirst for East Hampton’s ocean waves. His hunger for music and surfing, however, pales in comparison to his desire to put a smile on the face of everyone he knows. And, despite the many challenges he has faced in the past couple of years, he has nonetheless continued striving to improve the lives of his friends and the strength of our community. That’s how friends describe Mark Schmitt. About four months ago, the

23-year-old East Hampton resident was leaning against a balcony in Springs when it gave way, causing him to fall two stories onto concrete stairs below. He suffered two broken vertebrae, broken bones in his face and brain injury. He’s been in the hospital ever since. Schmitt lost his parents several years ago, and has no insurance or financial stability, according to a Facebook page announcing a fundraiser for Mark Schmitt slated to be held this Saturday from 5 to 9 PM at the American Legion in Amagansett. Clinton Wizelius is one of the

organizers of the event, designed to help defray staggering hospital bills that continue to grow. He reported his close friend has “good days and bad days.” After the accident Schmitt spent over two months in the intensive care unit at Stony Brook University Hospital, much of that time in an induced coma. He’s currently at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where he’s been for the last month. “He has total memories,” Wizelius related, “but he’s lost much of his muscle mass from being in bed for four months.” Schmitt is due to be moved next to a full time rehab center, where he’ll receive intensive physical therapy. Medical experts have not been able to issue a definitive prognosis. “Only time will tell,” Wizelius pointed out. Still, friends remain optimistic, “He’s a strong, strong kid,” Wizelius said. The outpouring of community support the young people have seen so far is no doubt fuel for that optimism. “Everyone has been so, so, helpful; it’s beautiful,” Wizelius enthused. “We’ve gotten tons and tons of donations.” In fact the generosity from local businesses

I HEAR VOICES AND THEY’RE OUT TO GET ME Mine is the last generation that will call to get a phone number from an information operator. My kids think that my wife, the beautiful Judy Licht, and I are relics from the Stone Age of dial phones. In the time it takes Judy or me to dial 411, my kids are on Google on their cell phones. While Judy and I are still trying to talk to the recorded information voices from hell, my kids are on the web site of the restaurant they want to call, getting the phone number and reading the menu. Now in every marriage there is something that drives one of the partners mad. In my case it’s this: When Judy talks to the recorded voice she says “Please” and “Thank you” as though the recorded voice has feelings and deserves her respect. Getting a phone number wasn’t

always like this. For years when I dialed 411 I would get a motherly voice who would come on the line immediately and say, “May I help you, Sonny?” and, like my mother, she helped me find the number I was looking for, despite the fact that I couldn’t spell worth a damn. Now you get this mechanical voice from hell that starts off saying, “AT&T 411 info. Say a city and state or say ‘other services.’” Then there is a clanging sound like it’s the start of a race and the recorded voice wants you to know her time is limited and she is telling you, “Talk and talk fast, brother, or I will cut you off like a dog.” Even when you give her a city she ignores you and then the mechanical voice (pretending to be real) starts talking “Indian talk” — or, should I say, Native American

speak. She says, “W-H-A-T—T-O-W-N?” Now you have less than three seconds to come up with the right town and believe me, it’s pressure. Seconds later the recorded voice from hell interrupts whatever you’re saying and says, “W-H-A-T—LI-S-T-I-N-G?” That’s when most people freeze. I find myself screaming into the phone as if the recorded voice doesn’t understand English and will understand better if I yell out my answer. I also find myself stuttering and wondering if the recorded voice can understand me. Sooner or later the recorded voice gives up trying to understand me and says, “O-NE — M - O - M - E - N -T— P- L - E - A - S - E .” This is the recorded voice’s way of saying, “You have failed. You talk as if you have marbles in your mouth. I’m going to have to disturb a real-life operator who is doing something really important, more important than to waste her time talking to the likes of you.” And, then, the live operator comes on and, with a voice dripping with sarcasm and disgust, says, “This is the Operator. May I H-EL-P you?” What she doesn’t add, but you know she’s thinking, is, “You ineffectual, slow-tongued, dimwitted cretin.” Now what you must know is that this sad exchange is the best thing that can happen to you when you are trying to get a number. The worst thing that can happen is if the recorded voice thinks it can understand you and hands you off to still another recorded voice. This, in contrast, is a pleasant voice that sounds like a friend. Watch out!!! This voice is after your money. This voice says (dripping with honey), “The number you requested can be automatically dialed by pressing the number one or saying yes for an additional charge.” If you’re like me, you always pay the extra charge because: (a) I never can find a pencil when I’m on the phone and end up trying to write with Judy’s lipstick or eyebrow

pencil, which seem to be next to every phone in the house, and (b) I can’t remember the phone number for ten seconds because I have the attention span of a zucchini. Now comes the real problem. Sixty four percent of the time the first recorded voice didn’t understand you so it costs you an additional charge for a wrong number. Many years ago I was in dental hell. One morning I woke up in pain and asked the recorded information voice for the number of Dr. Jack Hirsch. On came the pleasant recorded voice asking me for additional money and then I was connected. The conversation went something like this: “May I speak to the doctor.” “He’s not in,” said the receptionist. “It’s important that I speak to him. I’m in pain.” “The doctor can’t help you,” she replied. “What do you mean he can’t help me?” I screamed. “Sir,” she said coldly, “it’s clear to me you have the wrong number.” “Is this the office of Dr. Hirsch, the dentist?” “No, this is the office of Dr. Kirsch, the veterinarian,” she replied. How was I to know? At no time in the conversation did she ask me if my nose was wet or warm. Some time ago, Judy and I were in the back of a cab trying to make a reservation at a restaurant in Manhattan. I was on my cell phone. The name of the restaurant was Bistro du Nord. I called information and, naturally, got the “W-H-A-T—TOW-N?” voice. “New York.” “W-H-A-T—L-I-S-T-I-N-G?” “Er … er … Bistro di Nord … er … restaurant on er . . .” That’s when Judy, ever the linguist, interrupted me. “It’s not di Nord, it’s du Nord. Tell her it’s d-u,” she said. “Judy, I’m not speaking to a human, I’m speaking to one of those f&%ing dummies.” Just then the live operator came on and she was laughing. “Did you hear?” I said, mortified. “Every word,” answered the operator, laughing hysterically. Then the operator confessed that she has never heard the “F” word more than since she started listening in on phone customers talking to these recorded voices. THEY’RE SADISTS AND THEY’RE LISTENING! Live operators are listening to us as we make idiots of ourselves talking to recorded voices. Pass it on. If you wish to comment on “Jerry’s Ink” please send your message to jerry@ dfjp.com

ADVISORY This summer’s record setting rains and aging “block construction” cesspools have combined to create an extremely serious problem: ever increasing incidents of collapsing cesspools. Some of these incidents have resulted in serious injuries and even death. It is of utmost importance that all those with underground septic systems on their property know the location, construction and condition of their equipment.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

If the system was put in prior to 1976, there’s a good chance that your cesspool was built using cement blocks and mortar. If so, it is extremely important that you ascertain the condition of the underground components, and to take note of any unusual depressions on the surface near where the equipment is located. This can indicate a problem underground. Keep vehicles and foot traffic away from the area. Get professional help.

HOW WE CAN HELP Call Dan Palumbo at Emil Norsic & Son, (631) 283-0604, ext 114. Tell him what you know about your system and he’ll determine whether or not an on-site inspection by a trained technician is advisable. If you agree, he’ll make an appointment and also advise you about safety procedures you can implement until such time as the potential problem is corrected. Above all, keep children and pets well away from the area. EMIL

“THE TUMULT AND THE SHOUTING DIES. THE CAPTAIN AND THE LANDSCAPER DEPART.” (with apologies to Rudyard Kipling)

Y

ou are planning some landscaping. You love the design. You visualize what your property will look like for years. BUT, what if something goes wrong over the years? Who is on the hook to make things right: the person you have retained to handle the job or the landscaper he/she hired to get the trees and do the installation?

MARDERS GIVES YOU A 2-YEAR WRITTEN GUARANTEE We have stood behind our full guarantee on plant material for some 37 years. (If someone will not take a risk on their work, why should you?)

WE ELIMINATE THE “HIDDEN” RISKS THAT LEAD TO COSTLY DELAYS AND DESIGN CHANGES We are current on all local regulations and we will get the necessary permits, apply for variances and appear before Town and Village Zoning Boards, etc. An important reason why we can guarantee costs and completion date.

WE HAVE THE TREES RIGHT HERE We have a $6,000,000 inventory of trees and shrubs (one half of which are large/unusual) that are supplied by our national network of proven growers. Our full-time buyer hand-picks these large trees.

SOUNDS LIKE MARDERS SHOULD COST MORE Surprisingly, we cost no more than anyone you would trust to do the work. To prove it, we will walk your property with you, listen to your objectives and concerns and return with a concept or solution (we can even work with a design you may already have) together with a cost you can rely on and a guaranteed completion date. All at no cost or obligation of course.

Coat drives. Food drives. Toy drives. Pet adoption drives. As the holiday season kicks off, a slew of local community organizations are collecting items for those less fortunate. On Saturday the East Hampton Rotary was one such group. Members gathered at local grocery stores, looking for donations for their annual “heavy bags” program. Concurrently the doors to East Hampton Town Hall were opened for the second annual food drive to benefit local food pantries. Below, find information about just some of the groups and individuals trying to help out. Be sure to

check with local schools, churches and synagogues, and civic groups to see how you can participate in making the holidays a little happier for those of lesser means. The Retreat hosts its annual Holiday Adopt-A-Family program throughout the season. Members of the community are invited to adopt a client family and provide them with small gifts/toy items plus gift cards to be utilized to purchase gifts during the holiday season as well as essential items for themselves and their families once they leave the emergency shelter and find stable housing.

Big Business For County Road 39? By Emily Toy

The corner of North Sea Road and County Road 39 might be in for even more traffic than it already has. A new proposal to expand the existing 3600 square-foot building located at 50 County Road 39A (formerly Snow White Dry Cleaning and Laundry) to a 5445 square-foot Laundromat is under preliminary review by the Southampton Village Planning Board. Also included in the proposal is an expansion for a 22-car parking lot. This would make the building one of the largest retail box stores on the road. Sebonac Realty LLC purchased the property from owners Pelosi, Aiuto and Roller. Sebonac’s lawyer Roy A. List, sent a letter and check in the amount of $5866 to the Village of Southampton for the site plan review fee on October 6. The building is located behind and east of five residences, adjacent to Southampton’s 7-Eleven and South Fork Realty, a one-story building.

Hartner Retires On A High Note By Rick Murphy

Michael Hartner announced last week he will leave his position as Superintendent of Springs School District after the spring term in 2012. Hartner will presumably leave some happy faces behind – taxpayers who will save over $3 million in taxes due to a tuition deal the district cut with East Hampton School District. Hartner helped broker the deal. Springs sends its students to East Hampton High School and pays tuition to East Hampton district. “I’m not one of those people who will have trouble filling the void,” Hartner said in an interview. “There are times when I think I want to do something else. There are books I’ve wanted to read, I’d like to go back to college to study.”

The East Hampton district used a statewide formula known as the Seneca Falls formula to fix tuition costs for its “feeder districts.” Hartner said “it’s unfair because it ignores economy of scale.” He said although the tuition agreement ends after the 2013-14 school year he intends to keep working to permanently revise the Seneca Falls formula. “The more students you have, the less it should cost,” he said. Kathee Burke Gonzalez, the board’s president, said, “Mike has made tremendous progress during his time at Springs and will be leaving the district on very solid footing. We are all proud of our school district and look forward to building on its successes.” Hartner was also credited by the school board with instituting a pre-K

program, expanding the campus to include the Town Youth Building and Most Holy Trinity Elementary School, significantly improving traffic safety, and upgrading the district’s legal ser vices while reducing legal costs. Harnter’s base salary is $170,000 and his contract calls for cost-ofliving increases. He contributes toward his health and dental plan and will be allowed to carry as many as 100 sick and personal days he will get paid for if unused. There CONTINUED ON PAGE 24.

Declaring War on the United States Government has Never Been a Good Idea. But believe it or not‌that is exactly what the airport opponents want the Town of East Hampton to do.

So why are the opponents so vehemently opposed to working with the FAA?

Instead of working with the FAA to control the helicopters, the opponents want us to go to court to stop all helicopters from using the airport. This litigation would cost millions of town taxpayer dollars. The United States Justice Department would oppose the town at every turn.

They want to close the airport. mission.

The chance that a Federal court would create such a nation-wide precedent is slim at best. The last time a municipality tried this legal strategy, it spent $7 million in legal fees and it lost. The opponents say that accepting FAA funds prevents the town from controlling helicopters. Nonsense. The FAA will help us implement regulations for noise abatement with no airport expansion. The recently approved seasonal control tower will provide a safer and quieter airport. No FAA cooperation ‌ no control tower.

That is their

In fact, a few years ago, a real estate speculator purchased a subdivision right at the end of the airport runway and told buyers the airport was going to be closed. This self-serving reckless strategy of fighting with the FAA has been going on for 10 years. It has only made helicopter noise worse. It is time for action to rid our neighborhoods of helicopter noise. Support FAA funding for the airport. It is the fiscally responsible thing to do. And it is the best and fastest way to control helicopter noise.

RICK’S SPACE A Romantic Weekend In Manhattan I try to keep it inside, but the stress of running a newspaper boils within until sometimes I fear I’ll explode. Living in the Hamptons makes it worse. We are all constantly under pressure to keep our drinking water pure, our beaches unsullied, and our air clean. We must be politically correct and live green. Oh, for the days when we could smoke, litter, and pollute! Just when I thought I’d reached my breaking point I found a vacation offer too good to pass up. Karen and I are people of modest means. We don’t get away much. But there I was, unable to sleep, staring blindly at the TV. Then something came on that changed our lives. This nice gentleman from Pirelli World Travel made an offer I couldn’t refuse. A long weekend in Manhattan for only $549 per couple! My heart pounded with happiness! Wait until I tell the little lady! Karen was thrilled. We anxiously made plans for the following week. How would we get there? Pirelli makes it easy! We drive our own car

and the only thing we pay for is gas and tolls. Once in Manhattan we park at the exclusive Pirelli parking lot for only $229 for the whole weekend! “Only Pirelli can offer a deal like this,” I gushed. We were met in Manhattan by our guide, as promised. Great guy! His name was Homeless Tom, but he was right at home in the Big Apple. We had filled out a questionnaire so our vacation experience would be crafted just for us! We told them we liked good hotels, eating out, camping, and folk music. “Grab your tents,” Tom said excitedly. “We’re going to the park!” “ Yo w – w e e ! C e n t r a l Pa r k ? ” “Even Better!” We were headed downtown. Oh, how I love the financial district. Reminds me of my days on Wall Street. “Here we are,” Homeless Tom said excitedly. “You can pitch your tent over there. Just watch out for the poop!” “Is that the doggie run?” I asked. “No, that’s the people run!” he said with a laugh.

People were playing guitars and reading poetry. Vendors were offering their wares up for sale or trade. It was so . . . it was so . . . Woodstocky! “I’m hungry. Where do we eat?” “Like Italian? Try that little ristorante over there.” We did, only to be rudely shown the door. “No one eats inside,” Tom offered. “All the good stuff is in the dumpster out back!” Later we wanted to go to the bathroom. “Want to go in a really nice hotel?” Homeless Tom asked. “How about the Waldorf?” I asked excitedly. “Go right ahead. Bathroom’s on the second floor. If the security guard sees you just tell him Tom sent you!” “Can we eat at Mesa tomorrow night?” “Sure! Dumpster is down at the end of the alley on the right. Just watch out for the . . . er, cats.” “I love cats!” Karen screamed. “Just don’t pet them,” Tom chided gently. Karen said I should give Homeless Tom a big tip for being so helpful, so I went looking for a cash machine. Golly, everything is so alive in New York! There are giant lines at every bank, though there are plenty of helpful policemen wearing helmets. “Excuse me sir,” I asked one. “Is there a bank I can go in to do some business?” “Yeah, buddie. It’s on Riker’s Island!” he said. Oops. Too bad we left the VW at

the parking lot! When we got back to the park we decided to bunk down in our tent and watch a video about Manhattan’s museums on our iPad. It was gone. “One of our neighbors must have borrowed it,” Karen suggested. We asked around. A nice shirtless man named “Powder Keg” agreed. ‘”Yeah, it got borrowed all right,” he said. “Lot’s of stuff gets borrowed here.” We were going to buy some handmade glass sculptures from Keg (as I call him to this day) but Karen couldn’t find her pocket book. He called his creations Sir Rinches and he must have been very well known because a lot of people were buying them. Funny, as we left the park we realized a lot of the people who purchased them left them behind. How sad. “Let’s take some home!” I suggested, but Tom thought it would be better for us to “Move on and don’t say anything.” We drove home quietly, not ready to face the hustle and bustle of the Hamptons. The truth is, I yearn for the peace and tranquility of that park in the city where we rekindled our romance and found ourselves again. I must confess, I miss HT (Homeless Tom, silly!) and Keg. I believe we made a connection. They will always be my soul mates, though I doubt I’ll ever see them again. There is a slim chance. I told them I have a big house out here if they want to house sit for us the next time Karen and I go to “Club Z.”

EDITORIAL

Political Correctness And Student Rights We understand what happened last week at East Hampton High School was a serious matter, and we understand the concerns of everybody involved. To reiterate, after we went to press the school released an account of a locker room incident. Apparently, a photo of the soccer team hanging in the locker room was defaced, and small swatstikas drawn on the coaches. According to the press release, an investigation determined the boy’s volleyball team used the locker room after the soccer team left, and no one else apparently went into the room. Three adults then drilled the volleyball members individually in a small office about the incident. The parents of those players, understandably, are irate their kids were questioned in this manner, especially since parents weren’t notified first. The acting superintendent said a security camera tape revealed that only the volleyball players had access to the room in question. Now, as it turns out, there seems to be some sentiment another door to the room was left unlocked, meaning perpetrators could have come from anywhere. More to the point, parents said they later learned the tape hadn’t even been viewed when their kids were interrogated. Worse, the soccer players weren’t even asked about the photo — and still haven’t been. Nor were the scores of youngsters playing outside coming in and out of the building. The truth is, the school’s athletic director targeted the volleyball team and judged them guilty before even conducting an investigation, and said as much to several players, in essence “I know one of you did it.” The district’s press release was no more than a pre-emptive strike to get the story to the press before the angry parents marched before the school board. We aren’t going to take shots at the school administration, but there was no timetable in place. Officials could have consulted with the police and quietly mounted an internal investigation. Instead, there was an outrageous breach of due process, a bullying tactic, and parents have every right to be upset. Threatening to cancel a playoff game the kids worked all season to play in was so over the top, so beyond the pale, that the person responsible should be disciplined for suggesting it. As it turned out the team, upset, lost to a team it had beaten twice before. They can never get that game back. School officials blithely dismissed the loss rather than acknowledge their role in it, and that’s a coward’s way out. It’s traumatizing for a youngster to be alone with

three adults grilling him. More to the point, the school’s athletic director has earned a reputation for being a stern disciplinarian, and we sense his heavy hand in all of this. The school acknowledges as much though oddly, a lengthy press release made a point of noting that individual, Joe Vas, didn’t actually question the kids. The kids, though, said it was Vas who threatened to forfeit the game. Worse, he was trying to coerce them into snitching, hardly an attractive trait we’d like to instill in our children. We need to keep things in perspective. Boys will be boys. Just how severe should the punishment be -should we saddle some 17-year-old dope with a felony on his record that will effectively cripple him for life because he doesn’t have the brains to understand the sinister connotations of the act he committed? Vas – real name Joseph Vasile-Cozzo -- made impassioned speeches at the school board meeting about the holocaust, Nazis, etc. as if to justify his heavyhanded interrogation. That’s pandering, and cheesy, and a lot of the parents in attendance said as much privately. Some of us have lost an entire generation from our family because of Nazi brutality. They have earned the right to speak about the horrors. From here it seems threatening and bullying our children was a lot more serious crime than some dopey youngster drawing on a photo. These bullying tactics that emanate out of the athletic director’s office have been the subject of articles in this newspaper before, and it’s going to bite district taxpayers in the butt one of these days. It is not a prison, it’s an institution of learning. We hire teachers, not wardens. Parents complained about Vas’s tactics before he was granted tenure – but outgoing board members who were defeated in the last election voted for tenure rather than let the new board make the call. Parents think it was done to spite them, to punish them for making waves. It was a mistake. This is the same guy who insisted we pay for a security force to police basketball games. Now the kids don’t go to the games anymore. The school board and the administration can come to grips with the fact we hired the wrong guy or continue to pretend things are fine. But, we fear, there will be more episodes. No one should be allowed to interrogate and threaten our children unless parents are notified. Leave police matters to the police, and let’s focus on educating. It’s something that has been sorely lacking around here.

Honored And Grateful Dear Editor, It is my belief that there is a certain honor in trying and losing and there is no honor in not trying. Although my WRITE-IN campaign for Southampton Town Supervisor did not achieve the “miracle win” that my supporters and I had hoped for, I am proud of the extraordinary percentage points I garnered: approximately 37 percent. And, that’s with having only six weeks to campaign and without even having my name listed on the official ballot line-up! And, that’s despite the fact that the current Supervisor had her name listed on three party lines (D, WF, I). My sincerest thanks to the people who came out from all walks of life, from across the political spectrum, to send a message that it’s NOT an election without a challenger, to support my viewpoints on community issues and encourage my continued work as a local government leader. I greatly appreciate your vote of confidence and encouragement. When the absentee ballots are fully tallied, approximately 3,800 voters exercised their right to a CHOICE by WRITEIN for the position of Town Supervisor. I am heartened to have had your support. To have that many people choose to WRITE-IN my name when voting on their official ballot is truly inspiring. In addition, several hundred voters in Southampton Town opted NOT to cast any vote for Supervisor on their Election Day ballots at the polls or on their absentee ballots – indicating that they chose not to support the current Supervisor, deciding to skip that column altogether. The percentages attributed to Throne-Holst and to myself as a WRITE-IN are based on the total votes cast on Column #15 of the ballots, Continued on page 16.

An Ignorance Rick, Your editorial about the Board of Elections remarking that the ”employees are notorious for doing as little as possible” and wondering about what said employees were doing on the days following the November 8 General Election reveals an ignorance about the process required by Election Law and the Herculean efforts necessary to get Election results finalized. First, with the exception of the Wednesday after the election, when hours were 9 to 4:30, Board employees have been working 8 to 8. Second, every absentee ballot has to be checked against the returning poll roster books to confirm that the voter did not vote in person. Third, all affidavit ballots have to be checked to determine whether they may be voted. These steps are taking place as the machines and suitcases and assorted

apparatus of an election are being returned, inventoried, sorted and accounted for. Every portion of this process is being done under the watchful eyes of the candidate’s representatives. The accuracy of the electronic voting machines is concurrently being checked by an ongoing audit process that requires the efforts of about thirty employees for at least two weeks. The Board also awaits the arrival of absentee ballots postmarked the day before the election and the military ballots that may arrive thirteen days later. While everyone desires finalized results instantly, it must be conceded that accuracy and consistency are more important. The Board of Elections prides itself on providing the accurate results that all parties seek in an expeditious time frame. While your job as editor is to nudge and prod governmental employees into faster and better work, it is our job to make sure that the law is followed and that the canvass of results is obtained properly. TOM KNOBEL Suffolk County Board of Elections Editor’s Note: With all do respect, Tom, let’s not get too high and mighty. The Board of Elections has been the dumping ground for patronage jobs for decades, as exposed in detail by Newsday. Some employees never even showed up at the office, at least in the old days, as you well know.

Wilky Clings To Lead; Scalera Looks Good By Rick Murphy

Independent / Peggy Stankevich

Flames engulf the Hampton Market Place on Race Lane in East Hampton. An estimated 100 firefighters responded to the early morning conflagration last Wednesday. Five volunteers were transported to the hospital, suffering from minor injuries. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

East Hampton Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson’s precarious grasp on the lead is shrinking every day. As The Independent went to press Monday Wilkinson, who led challenger Zach Cohen by 177 votes on Election Day, was still up by 80 votes according to an unconfirmed source. That followed a full day of counting absentee ballots at the Board of Elections last Friday. There were 799 originally, and 301 remain.

Cohen has been chipping away at a 58 percent clip – meaning about four in 10 absentee ballots are coming in for the challenger. Four or five Election Districts remain. Of them, were approximately 160 votes sent in by Democrats, 73 by Republicans, and most of the rest, unaffiliated voters. Should the same percentages hold true, Cohen, the Democratic Party standard-bearer, will fall short by about 37 votes. But there is a big if. As was the case with the hotly contested Bishop-Altschuler Congressional race, both parties are challenging some absentee ballots. They are not in the official count, but will be ruled on separately on a case-bycase basis by officials. Though the number of challenged votes is not available, unconfirmed reports are the Republicans – Wilkinson’s camp – have been more aggressive challenging the votes by a roughly 3 to 1 margin. That means Cohen could gain additional votes if some or most of the challenged votes are eventually allowed. Cohen said the incumbent’s camp is, “challenging like crazy.” At the end of Friday’s count, GOP operatives had challenged 50 votes, while the Dems challenged just 16. The race is so close; in fact, that write-in votes – reportedly seven – might have made the difference had they gone to one declared candidate over the other. The Board of Elections hopes to conclude opening absentee ballots Monday, but “that still doesn’t mean the race will be settled,” Cohen pointed out. “Both sides have the option of protesting the end result, challenges that would involve a complete recount of every vote.” Over the weekend Cohen was mulling how to proceed in terms of legal representation. So far former party leader Chris Kelley, current boss Jeanne Frankl and party member Sam Kramer – all attorneys – have been supervising the count for the Democrats. Cohen could also employ the services of the legal eagles who oversaw the recount and challenges for Congressman Tim Bishop who prevailed in his last, very close, reelection bid. Frankl issued a statement Monday morning: “In the tight race between challenger Zach Cohen CONTINUED ON PAGE 20.

Sag Fire Department Receives 9/11 Artifact By Emily Toy

The Village of Sag Harbor got a small piece of history last week, which will serve as a reminder of the September 11 attacks. Last Wednesday morning the Sag Harbor Fire Department headquarters received a small piece of steel from the World Trade Center that will eventually be part of an outside memorial at the Brick Kiln Road site. The triangular-shaped structure, over 100 pounds and about 30 inches tall, was moved from New York City by Chief Pete Garypie and Assistant Chief John Anderson, thanks to the collaborative efforts by Soldier Ride organizer Reggie Cornelia, writer and photographer Barbara Lang and Sag Harbor resident JoAnn Lyles, mother of Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter who was killed in Iraq in 2008. The artifact was brought by pick-up truck to the East End and also included an aerial ladder filled with Sag Harbor resident Doris Gronlund, Cornelia and Lyles as well as firemen from Sag Harbor and neighboring towns. According to Gar ypie, the project made Sag Harbor residents Linda Gronlund and Haerter honorary members of the fire department. Gronlund was one of the passengers killed on 9/11 in American Airlines Flight 93. Her mother Doris donated an American flag to the fire department that bears the names of all who were killed in the attacks. Currently, the piece of steel rests in front of the wallmounted flag in the main hall of the fire department. Garypie said that Lang, Cornelia and Lyles have been working extensively over the past year to bring a piece of the towers to Sag Harbor. “JoAnn really spearheaded the whole thing,” the chief said. Recently, the Sag Harbor Fire Department Ladies Auxiliar y joined the effort by beginning work on a memorial patio/garden to display the steel. “The groundbreaking for that is most likely going to be this spring,” Garypie said. The chief also said the Ladies Auxiliary is selling bricks to build the walkway and garden slated to be built on the corner of Columbia Street and Brick Kiln Road. Each

brick for sale to the public would mark the memory of firefighters killed on 9/11. Sag Harbor marks one of the few towns east of the Shinnecock Canal that received a piece of steel from the towers. “I think that Shelter Island just got theirs, I know Southampton and Flanders have a piece and Montauk may have one,” the chief said. According to Garypie, exact plans and dates for the patio/ garden to be built have not yet been finalized.

Last week Thiele also encouraged community members to remember the spirit of the first Thanksgiving celebration, a feast that demonstrated the generosity of Wampanoag Indians towards the Pilgrims. When the 53 settlers did not have enough food to feed their colony, the Wampanoag came to their aid by teaching them to fish and farm in the New World. The Pilgrims shared the newfound bounty to repay their kindness. With that in mind, said Thiele it is important to remember those who are less fortunate and help today’s hungry families this holiday season. Nearly 23 million Americans, many of them children, struggle to

With four large districts still uncounted as of Friday, November 18, Mr. Cohen and Democrats concede the election is still too close to call but remain “cautiously optimistic.” In Southampton, the race for the second of two town board seats looks like it will go to the Republican, Independence, and Conservative candidate, former town attorney Christine Scalera. On Election night Scalera had an 85 vote lead over the Democratic challenger, Brad Bender. Sources said the lead increased when the absentee ballot count started coming in Friday. According to the Board of Elections the remaining absentee ballots yet to be opened traditionally skew toward the Republicans.

Earlier this year, when Quigley first proposed the measure, she credited a “committee” with the desire to regulate contractors running the gamut from college kids home on break looking to make a few bucks raking leaves to individuals who perform handyman type duties after work to big time operators who undertake contractor duties full time. At the time, she was unable to list exactly who comprised the committee, but, pressed by The Independent, admitted there were no part timers or handymen – who would be most painfully affected by the law – on the committee. This week, the councilwoman said she’d like to hold off on scheduling a

THE INDEPENDENT Q Traveler Watchman

hearing, due to the volume of input she’s received. Using that feedback, she’s like to continue to tweak the code amendment before allowing it to debut at a hearing. That appeared to irk Supervisor Bill Wilkinson. He complained about the “pace of play,” scolding Quigley for “futzing around” with the proposal for nine months. There was little “futzing” when it came to Wilky’s proposed 2012 budget document. With little discussion, both last Thursday night or at any work sessions held after the supervisor submitted the draft in September, the board voted unanimously to adopt the spending plan. It calls for modest savings for most property owners – on the order of just over $2 for people with homes valued at $500,000 and more for those with more plush abodes. Congratulating his colleague for crafting a document that doesn’t call for a tax increase, Councilman Dominick Stanzione pointed out the percentage of taxes that relate to paying off the deficit Wilkinson inherited from the last administration. He felt it was important to take note of the sacrifice inherent in paying off the fiscal predations of predecessors. Also last Thursday night, the board officially closed the public hearing on creating a road improvement district off Springs Fireplace Road allowing property owners in the adjacent commercial subdivision to create access to their parcels. The improvements are estimated to cost about $945,000 and will be initially paid for through the issuance of serial

bonds. Property owners benefiting from the road will see their portion of the expense reflected on their tax bills. The issue was initially the subject of controversy when it was suggested the entrepreneurs take access through the modest West Drive residential neighborhood. The road improvement district ensures that won’t happen. Access was the focal point of another vote held during the formal session. Board members approved an agreement with Southampton Town that makes sure town residents continue to enjoy reduced rates at the Poxabogue Golf Center. Whether fees would increase was a concern when the board first discussed selling its share of the asset to western neighbors. Increased fees may continue to be a concern regarding proposed changes at the town’s scavenger waste plant on Springs Fireplace Road. A thorn in the side of many an administration, once again the facility is burdened with violations from the State Department of Environmental Conservation and the cost to bring it up to snuff could be, as Stanzione opined following Thursday night’s meeting, “gobs of money.” An alternative to costly upgrades is downgrading the facility from a waste treatment plant to a transfer station. The board voted Thursday to adopt a corrective action plan to submit to the DEC and to solicit bids from private firms for running

IN THE NEWS

the plant as a transfer station. “Our options are limited,” Councilman Pete Hammerle told The Independent. “I think enough members of the board feel it’s important to have something there.” A temporary transfer station would mean no loss of the services to the community, he emphasized. Whether it will mean higher fees for disposal is still uncertain. In seeking a private firm to operate the facility, Hammerle said board members were leery about capping fees. Doing that could limit the number of respondents willing to bid. In other news of bids, the board voted to seek bidders who may be interested in buying town-owned office suites on Pantigo Place. When Wilkinson took office last year and surveyed his realm, he was critical of his predecessor, disgraced former supervisor Bill McGintee, for failing to conceive a concrete plan for selling the suites. In discussing his scheme for creating the historic town hall complex, McGintee often made mention of gaining revenue by selling the suites and moving departments currently housed there to the all-but-vacant old town hall. Wilky took office only to learn no plans had been commissioned and rehabbing the building would cost upwards of $1 million. The proposal on the table this week, offers the sale of the seven suites for $3 million with the proviso that the town continue to inhabit them for a year for free. Afterwards, the town would pay rent to the new owners should new digs for town departments continue to be a question mark. Andy Sabin, whose company occupies a portion of the Pantigo Place locale, is rumored to be a potential landlord. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

This hand is a good example of a concept or way of bidding called a weak suit game try. Usually South will not bid again after North shows only 6-10 points. However, South has a feature that he would like North to know about, namely, his concern about losing two or three heart tricks. His message to North is “Can you keep  me from losing several heart tricks?”  With the ace and 5 of hearts, North can limit  South’s losses in that suit to one  and says so by bidding to game in spades. If North could not control the losses in hearts, he would have bid only three spades. The hand has a good chance of making four spades even though the declarer has only 22 high card points. After West leads the jack of hearts, South wins the ace and king and leads a third heart which he trumps in dummy. Next he plays the queen of spades followed by another spade to his hand. After drawing the third trump, South starts the diamonds losing one diamond. one club and one heart. Bid and made 4 spades. Not many duplicate teams would have bid the game.   THANKSGIVING KIDS CLUB •

Levy’s looking to change the county charter to require the budget vote be held before voters go to the polls. North Fork Legislator Ed Romaine supports the notion and, as of press time, was crafting a bill

to that end. “As elected officials, our constituents should know where we stand on the most important piece of legislation we consider each year before heading to the ballot box,” said Romaine. “It’s all in the timing,” South Fork Legislator Jay Schneiderman said Friday. “If we can get the budget earlier, that’s fine. If the county executive could present the budget a week earlier, it would change the whole timeline and we could vote before Election Day.” Schneiderman refuted Levy’s claims about the impact of legislative amendments.

that is served by county police, he noted, “My area did not experience any property tax increase. In fact, I was able to bring $10 million in sales tax revenue back over to the general fund.” According to the lawmaker, Levy’s budget was rife with errors -- to the tune of $135 million. Ultimately, he said, “We cut more than Levy did; he’s just spinning in typical fashion.” In Suffolk, the charter lays out the timeline for the presentation of the county exec’s proposed spending plan, hearings and final adoption, with amendments from the legislature. For towns, the process is articulated in New York State Town law. In both cases the executive or supervisor must propose a budget in September, then hand it over to the legislature or town board for review and revisions. Levy complained that this year, even though the charter requires a minimum of two days for review of budget amendments before the vote, a comprehensive 126-page set of amendments containing more than 990 individual changes was made available to legislators, the media and the public just 14 hours before the vote. Last year in Southampton Town, Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst had a similar complaint. She chafed when the Republican majority on her board presented so-called eleventh hour amendments, effectively hijacking her budget and proposed departmental reorganization. During an election year, the mandated timeline can put a leader at a disadvantage. A supervisor may propose a budget calling for a modest tax increase and bear the brunt of politically motivated criticism only to have members of the town board swoop in after Election Day with revisions that increase the tax hit. On Friday, Assemblyman Fred Thiele reported that he’s never had any town leaders seek his sponsorship of an amendment to town law revising the date. He noted that as a matter of course, when he was Southampton Town Supervisor, “I always made the commitment to adopt before Election Day . . . of course I cut the tax levy three straight years, so why not?” kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Where are they going to go?” Warren also said that he, along with many other local business owners, are anything but thrilled about the proposed expansion. “All major business owners are against this,” he said. According to Warren, the village has lost key traffic over the years, and is expected to lose even more. He also said that about 80 retail stores were empty last winter, half of which got rented in the summer, but 40 still remain closed. Warren and other laundry and dry cleaning business owners have joined forces to petition to the town to stop the expansion project. At the planning board’s meeting to discuss the proposal last month, a 2007 aerial photo was reviewed. The use of the building was not specified

The last planning board meeting discussing the proposal was on November 7. Another spanner in the works for the proposal is the fact that the county will soon begin the construction on the road itself, which will add another eastbound driving lane on CR39, beginning at the North Sea Road intersection. According to Warren and other opponents of the expansion, the new building would increase traffic, light and noise pollution, as well as take away revenue from small business owners. “Anybody that has a property in Southampton has an interest in this,” Warren said.

FANTASY SP By Skippy Brown

RTS

There’s Still Fantasy Action Out There! One of the most sobering realizations a fantasy sports player endures is the recognition that this year’s fantasy thrills are for the most part behind us. Yes, many of us are still alive in Fantasy Football with the playoffs set to begin in a couple of weeks. But veteran players know that soon enough our teams will lose and be eliminated. For many more of us, though, it’s pretty much over now. That’s because our teams have been eliminated from championship contention or, we sense, they aren’t good enough to go all the way. This is never our fault, of course. We curse the gods, our luck, the stupidity of NFL coaches who don’t get the ball to our players enough. For some of us, our season ended when our best player went down to an injury -- shout out to you Jamal Charles owners. But don’t despair. For those of you out there who enjoy playing and wish

it can continue -- that probably means you’ve developed a Fantasy Jones -- here are a couple ways to keep the action alive.

day -- just pick a team under a given salary cap and join a league. You can play head-to-head (for up to $100) or join pools for as little as $1. The strategy in these types of games is to find players with low salaries who are set to have a good game -- think Jerome Simpson from Cincinnati, who was named a starter yesterday after it was announced his teammate A.J. Green wouldn’t be playing. Fan Duel also has nightly hockey games and, if and when the NBA players come off strike, nightly hoop action as well. Fan Salon is a similar site with a few twists. As is in the case with Fan Duel, you’ll need to deposit money to play. Word to the wise: don’t play for big money with any of these sites. Fan Duel is related to Fanball, which stiffed me after I won a championship. I had to get the New York State Attorney General to intervene -- ah, the power of the press! Sporting News Stratomatic Baseball: Those of us of a certain age, remember the captivating board

game that captured the essence of baseball and all of the stats? You can still buy the board game and cards and play with dice, but you can play an online version as well. Basically, you pick a team and play a full schedule, three games a night. You don’t have to physically do it -the computer plays for you. But you set your lineup, pitching rotations, rotate your subs and relievers, pinch hit, pinch run, and you can trade up a storm, always a fun feature. It’s a great Hot Stove companion, fun for ages eight through 80. Stratomatic Football is played against a live opponent over the Internet. You are, in essence, the offensive and defensive coordinator, calling plays and setting up defenses. It’s very realistic, and actually quite exciting. The game costs about $60 but it lasts forever. You can play for free or set up a league with your buddies. As we’ve said in this space many times, regardless of how much you play for it’s always better to form leagues with your friends and cut out the middle man. One final note: NASCAR and PGA golf fantasy leagues are gaining in popularity. If those sports are your thing, check one out on Sportsline or yahoo.

MindedSports By Pete Mundo

Jets’ Season Far From Finished As the New York Jets head into this weekend’s home matchup with the Buffalo Bills, they’re a team with a .500 record. For a team with preseason Super Bowl aspirations, it’s fair to ask, where has their 2011 season gone wrong? Some may point to 24-year old Mark Sanchez, but objective viewers know the Jets’ problems involve far more than the chiseledjawed, signal caller. The 5-5 Jets have failed to play quality defense or run the ball well, the two attributes that brought them to the brink of the Super Bowl the past two seasons. Mark SanShonne Green chez certainly can’t be confused with Broadway Joe this season. He’s 28th in the NFL in completion percentage (57 percent), in the top 10 in interceptions thrown (10), and in the top five in sacks taken (25). These numbers are certainly worse than fans expected in Sanchez’s third season.

However, when compared with the top quarterbacks selected in the last three drafts, Sanchez hasn’t been nearly as disappointing. Josh Freeman has been consistently mediocre. Sam Bradford and Matthew Stafford have shown glimpses of brilliance, mixed with injuries. Cam Newton still has plenty to prove, and Pat White is now playing in the United Football League (don’t even start, Tim Tebow-lovers). No one believed Sanchez had to have a Tom Brady-esque year for the Jets to succeed in 2011. While fans hoped for improvement, quarterback play was never supposed to be the New York Jets primary strength. The ground-and-pound rushing game of the Jets has fallen by the wayside this season. Shonne Green leads the Jets in rushing with 573 yards, but that’s 18th in the NFL; as a team, the Jets rank 25 in rushing, averaging only

96 yards per game. But most notably, the self-proclaimed “best defense in the NFL” is far from that. The Jets rank seventh against the pass and 16th against the run. They are sixth in the NFL in penalty yards and 18th in points allowed per game. The past two weeks the Jets lost to the New England Patriots, who put up 37 points and then last week Tim Tebow led the Broncos to victory on a 95-yard touchdown drive. The league’s “best defense” would never allow these scenarios to occur. It’s amazing how short the memory of fans and pundits can be. Mediocre results at this point in the season are nothing new for New York’s AFC squad. Each of the past two seasons, the Jets have appeared dead in the water well into the season. In 2009, a week 16 win over the Colts helped propel New York into the playoffs. Last season, a

week 15 road win over the Steelers helped snap a two game losing streak and led the Jets to clinch a playoff berth the following week. Anyone who’s consistently watched this Jets team knows they’re not as good as they’ve been the past two seasons. The defense is older and slower, and the offense still lacks an identity. But the AFC is unusually weak this season. The Jets have six games remaining and only one of those is against a team with a record above .500 (Giants). While the division is most likely out of reach, there’s no reason a late season surge can’t put New York back to where they’ve become comfortable in January: tackling a playoff game on the road.
