ATH Strives To Stay The Course By Emily Toy

It’s that time of year again. Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst delivered her annual state of the town address last Thursday afternoon to a crowd of about 30 people at town hall. Among those present were County Executive Steve Bellone and Legislator Jay Schneiderman, along with Southampton Town Board members and new Comptroller Leonard Marchese, all of whom listened to the supervisor’s update on “the number of things we’re working on.” The supervisor highlighted the efforts of her colleagues, such as Councilwoman Christine Preston Scalera

and Councilman Chris Nuzzi’s new Quality of Life Task Force, Councilwoman Bridget Fleming’s Flanders Farm Fresh Market, and the entire town board’s efforts towards making Noyac Road safer. “This brief list is by no means complete -- but it does provide you a snapshot of the efforts made to continue to improve the quality of life,” the supervisor said. Throne-Holst’s principal focus during her speech were the town’s financial state and the environment. “A little more than a year ago, in my State of the Town address I stated to you that ‘Southampton has

turned a most significant corner in re-establishing its financial soundness and reasonable good health,’” she said. “I can assure you it is no less true today than it was one year ago.” The supervisor reported that the 2011 and 2012 budgets represented a zero increase in operating costs. “The success of these efforts is due in large part to the hard work and ingenuity of our dedicated staff,” Throne-Holst said. According to the supervisor’s speech, since 2009 Southampton’s police fund has moved out of significant deficit of nearly $1 million to a surplus of $1.2 million at the end of 2011. In that same period, the town’s Land Management/Zoning Fund went from a deficit of a bit over $300,000 to a surplus of $538,903. “All of our funds are now in the black,” Throne-Holst said, “a starkly different picture than what was revealed throughout the restatements and related financial clean-up work begun in 2008 up to last year.” Other initiatives have been taken in Southampton to greater improve efficiencies.

MOTHER’S DAY I miss my mom. And not just because Sunday is Mother’s Day. I have a problem with Mother’s Day as a holiday, anyway. Yes, I know it’s a great day for restaurants and florists and card stores to make some money. But it’s become a blatantly commercial day and that enables some people (who don’t pay as much attention to their mothers as they should all year long) to play “catch up” and make up for neglect with some flowers or a Mother’s Day meal. My mom died a number of years ago and I think of her just about every day. I wouldn’t like myself if I didn’t think about her as much as I do. I called and spoke to her every day from the day when I got married (as a child bridegroom)

and left home, until the day she died. She would end every phone call I made to her over the years with the same two words: “Be careful.” I owe her a lot. She gave me something that ever y mother should give a child – unconditional love. I never felt, for a second, that she could love me any more than she did if I did well at school. Unconditional love has nothing to do with good marks at school. I never felt for a second that she would love me any more if I were a success or any less if I were a total failure in life. Success or failure doesn’t enter into the picture when a child receives unconditional love. My mom was tiny – just 4 feet, 10 inches tall. For the first 40 years of her life she weighed less than a

Draft Law = “Everybody Furious”

Still others, like Larraine Creegan from the Chamber of Commerce, felt the law would be unenforceable — how do officials propose to count heads, would everyone have to freeze in place while a census was taken? Several speakers pointed out that economic survival depends on people who want to be outdoors. Expressing the adamant opposition of the newly formed Montauk Citizens Voice, Michael Brosnan said the timing of the proposal is “a

Independent / Kitty Merrill

A crowd came out to town hall to criticize a new proposal geared towards regulating outdoor entertainment. By Kitty Merrill

Nobody complained about the font she used or the spelling of the words in the hearing notice. Otherwise, for myriad reasons offered by varied segments of the community East Hampton Town Councilwoman Theresa Quigley’s proposal for regulating outdoor entertainment is a no go. If adopted as crafted by the councilwoman, the new law would set outdoor occupancy levels of one person for every seven square feet of outdoor space, with the chief of police charged with determining the figure. It calls for no planning department review of parking or septic issues that could arise from the additional occupancy. A public hearing on the measure last Thursday night elicited criticism from what are often opposing quarters. People from the business community complained that they are already over regulated while environmentalists worried about the failure to include skilled land use planners in the mix. There’s no reason to do this, opined Paul Monte, the CEO for Gurney’s Inn on Old Montauk Highway. He read from a lengthy list of permits his resort must already procure to demonstrate “We’ve already got permits, licenses and certificates out the ying yang.” Monte drew applause from the audience of about 100 when he made the point that most businesses in his community already know how to control their occupancy. If there are just a handful that don’t, and cause problems, the town should enforce laws already on the books and “put them out.” Others from the business community were of similar sentiment. They felt enhanced code enforcement could staunch issues arising from popular nightspots like the Surf Lodge and Ruschmeyer’s.

little awkward” and leaves too little time for earnest debate before the summer season kicks off. Speaking on behalf of the Concerned Citizens of Montauk, Jeremy Samuelson said the town should focus on specific places where there are problems, not the entire business community at large. He noted commercial activity should correspond to infrastructure on a site, with parking and septic scaled to the use. That’s not acknowledged in Quigley’s proposal. The seven square feet per person notion was repeatedly criticized – especially by those who did the CONTINUED ON PAGE 26.

In a letter to The Independent published in our May 2 issue, Cohen questioned why, after a “Pow-wow with the new owners of the Ronjo, their attorney, Assistant Town Attorney Pat Gunn, and building inspector Tom Preiato,” a stop work order on the Ronjo was lifted, suggesting the building inspector was pressured.

Cohen was clearly agitated when he approached the podium. He charged that Gunn called him after the letter was published and the conversation was “sort of an interrogation.” The interaction was prompted, Cohen said, from a conversation between Gunn, Quigley and Andy Hammer, the lawyer for Ronjo and a former town attorney earlier in the day. Quigley appeared shocked as Cohen made the assertion. Quigley acknowledged she was present during the call but said there was no wrongdoing. “Pat came to my office and he was very upset” over the allegations lodged by Cohen, she said. “I was doing my e-mails” during the subsequent, phone conversation between Gunn and Hammer, Quigley, said, and nor paying attention to what was being said. Others in town hall were, apparently. The discourse over speakerphone was described by insiders as “very loud.” Cohen scoffed when Quigley claimed she wasn’t participating in the conversation and walked out. “I just wanted her to admit they called me from her office,“ he said afterwards, noting he had to catch a flight. Wilkinson and Quigley derided Cohen after he left, dismissing his suggestion something untoward had occurred. Town Attorney John Jilnicki said the town should contact the County District Attorney to investigate if anything illegal had occurred. Wilkinson, and Quigley, agreed.

The Lady Leah ran aground on the north bar about 1000 feet from the Lighthouse in Montauk last Friday night. On Saturday a contingent of friends pitched in to tow the boat off, after an excavator dug a hole behind the vessel. By Saturday night the boat had been brought to the Montauk Marine Basin where it was to be hauled out for repairs. According to marina owner Carl Darenberg, the Lady Leah is of Nova Scotian design and built to withstand tide drops. He said it’s one of just a few boats in Montauk able to survive that type of grounding. Montauk fisherman Steve Hagony is Lady Leah’s owner. K.M.

Looking Forward To Trailer Fairness By Kitty Merrill

They said it would be temporary. They said every town in Suffolk County would share the burden. They kept saying that, even after the second trailer for housing homeless convicted sex offenders popped up “under cover of darkness” in the Town of Southampton. The Suffolk County Legislature voted to end the trailer program. Lawmakers voted to decommission the trailers in Westhampton and Riverside. It didn’t happen. At every turn, according to Legislator Jay Schneiderman, former county executive Steve Levy thwarted efforts to craft an equitable program for housing homeless sex offenders. At every turn, for five years. Now there’s a different Steve at Suffolk’s helm and Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst is optimistic. Last Thursday County Executive Steve Bellone re-iterated a vow he made on the campaign trail: he will eliminate what he calls “a terrible public policy” before the first year of his term ends. As Schneiderman, Throne-Holst and Bellone stood together in Southampton Town Hall affirming the CE’s promise, the local legislator, who’s been at the forefront of the trailer battle since they first appeared in Westhampton in 2007, couldn’t help but make an observation. It wasn’t the first press conference he’d attended about the issue, but it was the first one that saw the county executive standing with

other elected leaders. Outlining the history of an effort Throne-Holst dubbed “the kind of advocacy that is finally paying off,” Schneiderman spoke of measure after measure blocked by the last administration. “Steve Levy kept figuring out ways to not deal with this,” he said, adding, ”I believe the era of irresponsible policy is over.” Stepping to the podium, Bellone greeted Schneiderman as “my partner in government.” He agreed the East End bore the brunt of Levy’s refusal to work with other levels of government and offered his own philosophy regarding the county, towns, and villages in Suffolk, working collaboratively. “If we are going

RICK’S SPACE To The Moon, Karen “You owe me an `I told you so,’” Karen said Sunday. “I told you you were going to say that,” I said. She proceeded to inform me that Saturday there was a so-called “Super Moon” and thus it was responsible for everything she did or didn’t do for the past few days. “Hon, did you pick up the milk?” “No, it’s a full moon.” “Hun (Attila, the) “Did you feed the dog?” “No, it’s a full moon.” The crescendo came when I wanted to watch “Saturday Night Live” in bed. I figured she’d want to watch too, because Eli Manning was the guest host and Karen loves the New York Giants. “No way,” she said firmly. “I haven’t been able to sleep the last couple nights because of the Super Moon.”

First of all, I had to inform her the moon is full for only one night. Also, since she couldn’t sleep it didn’t matter if the TV was on or not. “It’s the closest the moon has been to the earth in centuries. You don’t understand, Rick, how it affects women. It pulls at us.” “What are you, the tide?” I asked. “I think it pulled the brains out of your head,” I added as I went downstairs to watch Eli in my “man cave.” Of course, I didn’t believe her about the moon, so I decided to do some research. According to National Geographic, the moon was 221,801 miles (356,955 kilometers) from our planet at 11:35 PM EST, precisely when Eli was taking the stage. That’s about as close as it can get.

According to LiveScience a full moon doesn’t make you crazy. “A review on the timing of mental illness and the moon found that the folklore that links the full moon with mental breakdowns, criminal behavior and other disturbances has no basis in scientific data,” wrote Stephanie Pappas, a LiveScience Senior Writer. Doubters could point out the root word of “lunacy” but I digress. My own research, however does lead me to the conclusion that the sphere is indeed made of cheese – Gorgonzola, to be exact – thus the term “Blue Moon.” I submit if the moon was indeed that close to us on Saturday night, the whole planet would have reeked of the stuff, which smells like vomit. There are more births during the full moon, but thankfully Karen made it through the night without having a child. Other than that, though, I could find no scientific data to back up her claim that it affects women more than men. Werewolves of both sexes howl a lot, though, and I swear I heard one up in the bedroom during “Saturday Night Live’ but I was afraid to go up and look. One thing I’ll never tell Karen is that the Super Moon happens ev-

ery year. Better she think it comes every 43 centuries. One thing I found out is that a lot of people think America staged the whole Man On The Moon thing. According to the theorists, the whole deal was done in a television studio. Come to think of it, if you look carefully at the old “Star Trek” shows the papermache “rocks” on some of the alien planets look suspiciously like the ones behind Neil Armstrong. That means all those “moon rocks” people bought were really earth rocks. Saturday night when the moon was really close I looked really hard but I didn’t see the flag Neil planted there, so maybe there is some truth to the theory. Then there is this little story: “Call handlers at the Hertfordshire police department received a call after 8 PM from a resident claiming to have seen a UFO with blazing lights, visible from his window. The genuine panic from the man led to the call handlers treating the sighting as a serious matter.” You guessed it – the man was looking at the moon. You can’t make this stuff up. Anyhow, the moon is finally waning, even though Karen was still howling as of last night. There is an official “Blue Moon,” which is by definition the second full moon of a month – but it isn’t really blue, either. A moon may appear blue, however, if there is volcanic activity on this planet. This may be what was happening Saturday night when Karen was erupting. The song of the same name has been a hit record for many different artists and contains the immortal lyrics, “Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba dang, dang, dang, dang dang, da, ding, dong.” The song though, written by Rodgers and Hart, is quite beautiful. It’s about a lonely man praying for someone to love. He was “Without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own.” But the moon answered his prayers: “and suddenly appeared before me, the only one my arms will hold . . . I heard someone whisper please adore me.” After he found his perfect soul mate, he looked back up at the moon and “it had turned to gold.” We just celebrated our 17th anniversary. To be truthful, we have found happiness beyond my wildest dreams. I struck gold that day for sure, and I am thankful for my life, thankful for my wife, and thankful the world doesn’t smell like Gorgonzola.

EDITORIAL Restricting, or Enabling Legislation? East Hampton Councilwoman Theresa Quigley’s proposed legislation to define what is and isn’t allowed in outside entertainment areas is an attempt to address what happened at the Surf Lodge during the last few summers. Hundreds of partyers descend on the nightclub every summer night. The ensuing noise and parking woes are too much for the neighbors to bear. The problem is compounded by the fact the club is in a residential neighborhood in Montauk. The town issued hundreds of violations but was unable to tone down the operation. At the very least, judging from the turnout at a hearing last Thursday, there seems to be little support for the new law. The problem from where we sit, is it doesn’t limit noise and partyers – it’s more enabling legislation designed to legitimize huge crowds crammed into spaces too small to accommodate them. Jeremy Samuelson, representing the Concerned Citizens Of Montauk, made an excellent point. An acre would accommodate 6322 people under the proposal. What the legislation really does for places like Ruschmeyer’s, the Surf Lodge, the former Ronjo Motel, and a few other pre-existing establishments is give them carte blanche to party-hardy, no matter how much noise is generated or how many vehicles pour into the neighborhood. The law in essence will legitimize out of control crowds and loud music by allowing these places to pack every inch of their property simply by obtaining a free permit, although in the case of the Surf Lodge it’s hard to envision any more people cramming into the space anyway. Ruschmeyer’s though, whose ownership group had ties with the former owners of the recently sold Surf Lodge, could theoretically host thousands of partyers under the new proposal. Applicants can pick up the permits at the town clerk’s office, thus bypassing

False Solicitations To the editor, Recently it was brought to my attention that some area residents are being solicited by phone to give donations to “hospice” and in at least one incidence when asked, the caller was reluctant to reveal the name of the organization to receive the donation. Please be aware, East End Hospice has never, is not now nor has any plan to engage in soliciting donations via the telephone.

Granted, donations to East End Hospice are welcome and necessary to support activities such as our highly acclaimed children’s bereavement p ro g ra m s, p rov i d i n g g ro u ps a n d individual therapy sessions to children and parents all across the East End; Camp Good Grief which in this the 15th year is expected to be attended by over 100 children; and the very exciting new project to build an eight bed free standing hospice inpatient residence. Looking back over the past 21 years of serving the people of the East End, the community has steadfastly supported and encouraged us in our work. We look forward to providing care and comfort to those in need in

any sort of regulatory review. Should problems arise the town board – and not code enforcement – would act as judge and jury. The recent brouhaha over the Ronjo now shines under a crystal clear light. By selling the new owners of the property a strip of town-owned land that runs through the pool area of the club the town paved the way to allow hundreds of additional customers to party outside, with all the noise and parking woes that come with it. It also makes clear why the new owners of the Ronjo, Chris Jones and Larry Siedlick, insist a pre-existing bar and restaurant exist on the site, and it raises the question of why the town hasn’t insisted on a thorough review by the planning department. Instead, the town rulers have been accused of doing everything in their powers to grease the skids for this new enterprise to be up and running as quickly as possible and created a scenario where huge amounts of money can be made. The latest news also provides yet another example of why Quigley has spent her entire stint on the board attempting to weaken the authority of town planners. This latest fiasco also further fuels charges that the administration manipulates the building department -- this board sometimes seems bent on pushing through its agenda without any sort of oversight or review, and the head of the department has apparently been muzzled. Supervisor Bill Wilkinson said his board is pro-business, and we concur that over the years the pendulum swung too far away from the needs of our business community. But there needs to be a balance, and the current leadership in town hall doesn’t seem to get that. Something has to be done to quiet the out of control crowds that flock to these clubs. This proposal doesn’t do the job.

Big Oil Giveaway Dear Rick, In the April 18 Indy, there was a letter from Joanna Livingstone relating to the March 29 vote to block legislation which would strip billions of dollars in tax breaks for the biggest U.S. oil companies. It was blocked by all Republican Senators,

save one brave, Olympia Snowe (RME). All Democrats voted to stop the tax breaks. This repeated behavior is hardly shocking. As Ms. Livingstone stated the obvious, anyone not duped or downright disingenuous must be blind to these repeated facts. As she aptly put it, “Republicans represent their beneficiaries’ big oil, the mega wealthy and corporations and the Democrats the American people.” It will be interesting to see how Keystone XL will be painted as a benefit the American Real Persons when it in fact is just one more give away to big oil. In fact XL is nothing but a risky viaduct to bring dirty “sands” oil from Continued on page 16.

He’s been around for so long and he’s so great. Maybe he’ll come back for a farewell game. But he’s not coming back the way he was for another season. Dori Sullivan Of course he’s coming back. He doesn’t want to go out on with an injury. He wants to come back as a hero, finishing a full season as a winner. And I have every confidence that that is exactly what he’ll do. I bet we’ll see him back in August or September. Joe Mello I don’t think he’s coming back. I think he was planning to retire at the beginning of the season anyway, although he hadn’t announced it yet. I heard him mention it in an interview, saying this might be his last season, and I think he’ll follow through. Joyce Brian Yes. He’ll be back, without a doubt. I think he’s driven, totally driven. And he’s so incredibly talented. He’s used to being injured and he’ll heal quickly and he’s in great shape. I believe if he says he’ll be back, then he will definitely be back.

Almanac

By Richard G. Hendrickson

April Weather 2012 Spring on Eastern Long Island is changing. It has been changing “slowly” during the last 75 years. We used to farm with milk cows and each cow had a calf -- “Guernsey Breed” -- in the spring. We also hatched 1500 baby chicks each week, so we had to keep more than an eye on the weather every day and night. One remembers when he had to shovel the door to the coal stove free of snow because there were 350 baby chicks under the stove hood. It was your next year’s living! With livestock and crops, your eye was to keep on the weather day and night. Our present “winters,” the last 50 plus, do not seem to be as severe as the previous ones. That is, winter gales, lower temperatures, and frozen pipes 3 feet in the ground. Where are the 6-foot snowdrifts, the skating, the ice boating, and the sleighing? Our cattle pasture hill used to be covered with kids and their sleds. How many years will pass before we see another ice-free winter? Such is the weather on Eastern Long Island. This isn’t just talk, but weather recorded with U.S. weather instruments in Bridgehampton, daily. Yes, we are in a period of milder winters and warmer summers, plus I believe, periods of greater precipitation. Time will tell. The ocean and all bay harbors have a slightly higher water level, and that means in time of storm, they creep farther landward, over all that is in their way. Warmest day of April was a high of 77 degrees on the 16th and 17th. Coolest nights was 29 degreeson the 3rd and 6th. Most daytime high temperatures were in the fifties and a few sixties. One of the most important weather items for our next 30 days will be rainfall. Nothing, plant or animal, grows without water! There were only five days when precipitation was recorded this April. Heaviest was 1.25 inches on the 22nd. Total for April was 1.38 inches. The long-term amount is around 4 inches for each month. We need rain now. Such is the variation in Nature! Where was our April fog? None recorded! Recorded were 15 clear, 3 partly cloudy and 12 cloudy days. Our wind direction for April was as follows: 14 days from the Northwest, which is our long-term winter wind direction. When we have an average rainfall in April, it is about 3.5 inches and the winds are always from an Easterly direction.

With the warmer temperatures we get each spring, we need greater amounts of rainfall. That is because our long-term high temperatures will be slightly higher, and moisture evaporation will be on the increase with our sandy soil. With our increase in population and a very slight increase in our summer temperatures, the fresh water consumption will increase also. Our coming days will give us higher temperatures, increased rainfall and occasional fog. We all hope future storms will leave our coastlines as good as they are now. Saturday, April 28th so many in our community came together to make the 2nd Annual Katy’s Courage 5k a wonderful day, and it illustrated what an amazing community we are all so fortunate to be a part of! We are grateful to be able to honor the memory of our little girl, Katy. There are many, many people to thank who made this day possible, including Sag Harbor Mayor Gilbride, Dee Yardley and the Sag Harbor Village Board, the Village staff, Chief Tom Fabiano and the Sag Harbor Police Department, all of our volunteers, Founders Tom O’Donoghue and Andrea Pizzanelli, Island Timing and all of those who came out from all over to show their love and support for the Katy‘s Courage 5k. The three areas our organization is eager to support are scholarships for local students, pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan aimed at the discovery of new methods of the treatment and control of childhood cancer, and the creation of a children’s bereavement center on the East End. All the net dollars received from the race will go toward these endeavors. We look forward to seeing you all next year!

With much gratitude, Jim, Brigid and Robert Stewart

The grant is part of the “Fishing For Energy” program set up by the National Fish and Wildlife Association, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Covanta Energy. Gershow recycling has agreed to cart the discarded items to Covanta in Hempstead where they will be recycled. “It’s a pretty bid deal,” Klughers said. “We’re the 30th port in the country to have one.” Though the dumpster will be positioned at the Montauk recycling station, Klughers said Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson was open to sending town trucks to the docks in other parts of town to collect materials. “Then we could bring the stuff back to the dump,” thus saving fisherman a trip to Montauk, Klughers pointed out.

Southampton Lieutenant Suspended By Emily Toy

In a special, last minute town board meeting on Friday afternoon, Southampton Town Board members, sans Councilman Chris Nuzzi, voted unanimously to suspend Lieutenant James Kiernan for 38 days without pay. Being punished for a personnel matter that town officials would not discuss in detail, Kiernan’s suspension runs through June 12, after which it will either expire or some sort of permanent action will be taken, according to Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst.

without pay, the lieutenant will be able to use any vacation and sick time he has accumulated, allowing him to remain on the town’s payroll and continue receiving his health benefits. Kiernan, who formerly led the department’s street crime unit, was sworn in as a Southampton Town Police lieutenant at a town board meeting last October. This is the latest salvo in a series of controversies concerning the force, beginning last year when the board went outside the department to make Wilson chief, bypassing candidates on the town force. Recently it was revealed a segment of the town board wanted to oust Wilson, and he was approached about accepting a retirement package but declined. Emily@indyeastend.com

come from as far away as New Jersey . . . but is that what your constituents really want?” Kahn queried. He believes the initiative would ultimately mean persistent violators would be allowed to do “anything they want.” Attorney Jeff Bragman agreed. He said Quigley’s idea is “a complete repudiation of 20 years of carefully modulated skilled planning” that made East Hampton the desirable place it is. Nancy Atlas and former town councilman Job Potter pointed out the impact the law could have on musicians. “Please consider how this would be affecting my livelihood,” said Atlas. Quigley said she was happy to hear comments from both sides of the issue. “This particular proposal, flawed as it may be, does seem to strike a middle ground because it made everybody furious,” she said wryly. Promising to rework the measure, she was adamant in declaring that it was crafted in response to complaints about any particular Montauk establishments. Rather, it was written because code enforcers lack the tools to address problems created by outdoor overcrowding. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

Margaret Kestler. One of the most popular musicals of all time, The Sound of Music is based on the true story of the Trapp Family Singers. Set in 1930s Austria, the story is about a young woman named Maria who is failing in her attempts to become a nun. When the widowed Navy captain Georg Von Trapp asks the convent for a governess to care for his seven children, Maria is given the job. The captain runs a strict household and at first the children are unhappy and resentful to have a governess. However, Maria’s kindness and sense of whimsy ultimately win them over. A romance brews between the captain and Maria, but the family is affected by world events, as Austria is about to come under the control of Germany. “They’re learning about that

“Some of these commercial fisherman have all these nets that would cost a lot of money to dump,” Klughers pointed out. The bin should be in place tomorrow and the agencies involved will hold a joint press conference in June to officially open and publicize the pick-up program. Derelict fishing gear is one of the major types of debris impacting the marine environment, according to studies. “Ghostfishing,” discarded nets and lines that entangle and kill fish, can also be a hazard to boats and other forms of marine life. They can also be harmful to whales, sea turtles, dolphins and sea birds. “Please don’t put household trash in the bin. If they find other stuff in it they will end the program,” Klughers said. Klughers was elected to the board of trustees in November. She holds a degree in Environmental Studies from Stony Brook and is a DEC Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator. “This is one of the things I promised to do if I got elected and I intend to fulfill all my campaign promises,” Klughers said.

ficiency and savings to payroll (now paperless) functions. “The value of these efforts -- and our sound financial footing -- was just underscored by the town’s recent annual capital borrowing in the bond market -- which was realized at a .5 percent interest rate, a credit to our financial good health, and further noteworthy as the lowest rate at which the town has borrowed in 10 years,” ThroneHolst added. Despite such positive results, the supervisor added that present and future challenges, mostly the state mandated two percent tax property cap legislation, loom. According to Throne-Holst, the tax cap mandate will be around for at least another four years. Moving on to the other focus in her address, Throne-Holst highlighted Southampton’s efforts for protecting the environment. “One of the foremost threats to our economic and environmental well being and future has overwhelmingly been recognized as the need to protect our increasingly threatened and polluted waterways,” the supervisor said, adding, “Clean and healthy waters, and safeguarding the fragile and unique Long Island ecosystem, are simply the foundation of all that drives our economy in this region.” On a local level, Southampton Town has made efforts to ban plastic bags from its waste system. The town has also been vocal in expressing the need to enhance the flushing of local waterways for cleaner water. Another integral aspect of safeguarding the environment, according to Throne-Holst, is land use policy and the protection of vital land parcels. The supervisor, along with Fleming and Councilman Jim Malone, facilitated the implementation and funding of the first year of a four year plan Throne-Holst initiated with a Dedicated Community Preservation Fund Advisory Board about 18 months ago. “This initial $30 million first phase, approved by the full Town Board, begins a $125 million borrowing plan over four years -- supported exclusively by the two percent property transfer tax -- to purchase targeted strategic open spaces and environmentally sensitive land throughout our town,” the supervisor said. Throne-Holst added that the long-range goal of the four-year plan is to preserve and protect at least 2000 additional acres of important open space and watershed land. Job creation was the last point

the supervisor touched upon during her State of the Town address. Throne-Holst commented on the growing number of empty storefronts and small businesses being forced out of business, stressing the need to revitalize the infrastructure that is already in place to create the

kind of economic environment that provides employment opportunities for everyone. “I share the important commitment of safeguarding the beauty and incredible resources this community has to offer,” Throne-Holst said. “And with your help, we can

By George Aman

Play Bridge A hand very similar to this one was played recently at EHDBC’s weekly game at St. Luke’s Church. It is a good example of the need for declarer to take his finesses in the correct order and the right direction. One South chose the correct order but most declarers did not. After North confirmed that spades was the correct denomination, South showed first round control in clubs and when North showed first round control in diamonds, South made a logical jump to six spades. When dummy appeared, South could see that he could not afford to lose two club tricks. He could

Fluke And Porgies Abound The Shinnecock Canal continues to please anglers with fluke, bass, blues and blowfish. A few stray weakfish have been found in the canal too. The inlet has seen a body of larger striped bass move in with bucktails being the lure of choice off the jetties with fish up to 20 lbs. Those who have drifted live bait have done well here as well. The fluke can be found in most of the regular haunts, including up at the “Greenlawns” off Shelter Island, the flats of Shinnecock and outside in the ocean. All the regular baits have been producing. Those on the Ponquogue Bridge have had a decent pick of bass and fluke. The weakfish have been out in the Peconics but haven’t heard much chatter on them of late. The porgies are all over the Peconics with some blowfish mixed in. Flounder sharpies continue to pick fish in Shinnecock with worms and mussel bait and plenty of chum. Shinnecock’s ocean beaches have been fairly quiet but have had reports of some decent fluke caught. The back bay areas are still the best bet. Capt. Scott Jeffrey East End Bait & Tackle 631-728-1744

discard the jack of hearts on dummy’s ace of diamonds. He also saw that, with extra trumps in both hands, he might be able to make an end play against West. In order to accomplish that, he needed to strip both hands of hearts and diamonds. After winning the king of diamonds, he played the ace of trumps and the ace and king of hearts. Then he led a trump to dummy and led his ace of diamonds, discarding the jack of hearts. He then ruffed his last heart in dummy. At this point, neither his hand nor dummy had any hearts or diamonds. Next he returned via a trump to dummy.

www.indyeastend.com

Now came the crucial play, a club from dummy. He planned to cover whatever club East played, forcing West to win or concede the contract. The play went 2-J-Q-K. Now West had to lead a club into the Ace-nine in declarer’s hand or concede a ruff and a sluff. In either case, South makes his contract. There are now two opportunities each week to play duplicate bridge in East Hampton. One game is at 1 PM on Mondays at St. Luke’s Church. The other game is on Thursday nights at 7 PM at the Day Care Center, which is near the RECenter. Please call me at 907-2917 or e-mail me at gaman13927@aol.com if you would like to play. The cost is only $10 for three hours of playing the world’s most exciting and challenging card game. Private lessons are also available.

Coast Guard Auxiliary News By Vincent Pica

Chief of Staff, First District Southern Region, USCG Aux, US Coast Guard Licensed Master

Scotch And (Sea)Water, A Deadly Cocktail Drunk driving, whether that be in a car or in a boat, is one crime where I actually feel the legal penalties are too lenient. If a person, uninfluenced by booze, drove a car or a boat recklessly and hurt or even killed someone, they would get a more severe sentencing in many jurisdictions than doing the same thing while drunk, “under the influence” as the legal saying goes. In earlier times, drinking and still being able to drive, whether that be a car

or boat, might have been considered a badge of honor in certain circles. Today, thank goodness, it is considered reckless lunacy. And things are worse on the water than on the land.

Oh That Swaying Feeling Often times, when I come in from a boat ride with the family, some of the more lubberly members of the family say, “I can still feel the swaying!” If they happen to jump in the

shower, it really gets intensified and they joke that they had to hold on to the shower wall to keep from tipping over! This is clear evidence of the dramatic impact the marine environment has on the body’s sensory perception system. While boating, we are confronted with conflicting information from the eyes, feet and inner ear. The horizon is constantly moving - up, down and sideways - as the boat moves beneath our feet. Our conscious brain has no problem with intellectualizing this. But the unconscious part of our brain is getting sensory overload. This can result in reactions ranging from slight queasiness to absolutely debilitating nausea. The marine environment is full of stressors - the sun, glare, vibrations, to name a few are all pretty common on there. Stressors intensify the effects of alcohol, drugs and some medications. They can cause

fatigue, reduced coordination, weak judgment and slow reaction time. And forget about the vision of the St. Bernard saving you from the cold by giving you brandy. Alcohol makes the body more susceptible to the effects of cold water, not less. Not surprisingly, all of this adds to boating accidents. U.S. Coast Guard data shows that, in boating deaths involving driving under the influence, more than half the victims capsized their boats and/or fell overboard. Over 1 in 5 boating deaths are linked back to the use of alcohol.

The Law Every state in the Union prohibits the operation of a boat while under the influence of alcohol. The US Coast Guard, as a federal entity, enforces a federal law that prohibits Boating Under the Influence (BUI). This law pertains to every vessel, foreign or domestic, operating in U.S. waters, as well as U.S. vessels on the high seas. Penalties may include fines, jail, impoundment of boats and in some states the loss of boating and/or driving privileges. Back in 2008, Operation Dry Water was started in partnership with the US Coast Guard, the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators and partner agencies. It is a national weekend of BUI detection and enforcement aimed at reducing the number of alcohol-related accidents and fatalities, and fostering a stronger and more visible deterrent to alcohol use on the water. Zero tolerance is of course the posture, then and now. Ours is coming up soon. Essential Boat Operating Skills Adversely Affected By Alcohol Or Drug Use

New York City born Lou Gehrig was one of the Yankees’ all-time greatest stars. Gehrig was a stand-out among greats like Ruth and DiMaggio, and a great favorite of the fans at Yankee Stadium, the scene of his emotional speech when he was honored in 1939. In better days, Gehrig had thrilled the fans when, in June of 1932, he became the first 20th Century player to hit four home runs in one game.
