Shells To Pay: Another Legacy Of Bill’s
By Kitty Merrill

The Selah Lester house is just a shell. There’s no money to complete the interior. The Peach Farm house is just a shell. There’s no money to complete the interior. The Baker House is just a shell. So is its ancillary barn. There’s no money to complete the interior. The Duck Creek Farm House is a little more than a shell. But it doesn’t have utilities and there’s no money for hook ups. And the old East Hampton Town Hall building? That’s only partially occupied. There’s no money to complete the work needed to make it useful. Last month The Independent articulated

an array of issues related to the historic town hall, a project inherited from disgraced former supervisor Bill McGintee, who left behind the half completed structure and no money to finish it. That wasn’t the only one. McGintee also acquired the four other historic buildings, some with accessory barns and sheds, listed above. Two, the Baker House and Peach Farm, were donated to the town, the other two were purchased with Community Preservation Fund dollars. Over five million of them, over five years ago. Tucked back off Three Mile Harbor Road

in Springs, Duck Creek Farm was once owned by designer Helmut Lang. The town voted to buy the property, which included the 1795 Edwards House for $2.5 million in 2004. It’s not visible from the road. The Selah Lester House, located on the corner of North Main and Cedar street was all too visible to critics who watched as weeks stretched into months while exterior shingling progressed at glacial speed. The property, which includes a second, unfinished structure, cost $2.5 million and was purchased in 2005. It’s estimated it will cost in the neighborhood of $110,000 to complete the interior. The Peach House was part of a donation

The Selah Lester house at the corner of Cedar and North Main Streets in East Hampton is seen by some as an irksome example of municipal mismanagement. It took months to complete exterior shingling work and the town lacks the money to finish the interior.

of a handful of historic structures that comprise the town hall complex. It sits apart from the main hall, vacant and unusable. Supervisor Bill Wilkinson said it will take a staggering $800,000 to restore. The Baker House was also a donation, but the town spent close to $1 million for the property it occupies immediately adjacent to town hall on Pantigo Road. “There’s nothing inside for heating or ventilation, there’s no parking, nothing to make it Continued on page 34.

Tuckahoe Home Invasion
By Kitty Merrill

5

Southampton Hospital personnel contacted the police Monday morning after a man suffered from a gunshot wound showed up looking for treatment. Responding police learned a 21-year- old man had been shot at his home on North Magee Street. Officers deployed to the residence determined that at about 9:30 Monday morning two black males wearing red bandanas over their faces tried to enter the house through the front door. One of the duo was armed with a semiautomatic pistol. As the assailants attempted to gain entry, the 21-year-old, whose identity is being withheld, tried to keep them out and was shot in the abdomen. A

housemate, aged 28, came to investigate the disturbance and was assaulted when he confronted the intruders. Cops say that once the pair was inside the home, they proceeded to go to several rooms before leaving “in an unknown direction by unknown methods.” The shooting victim drove himself to Southampton Hospital, where he was admitted for treatment. The 28-year-old followed. He was treated and released. Detectives are investigating what, if anything, was taken form the home. Based on what they have learned so far, cops believe the residence was specifically targeted. They weren’t ready to say why.

Eye Insurance Idea

Scott Bradley (left) and Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley discuss insurance proposals with the Southampton Town Board. By Kitty Merrill

Could a cooperative effort curtail costs? Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley thinks so. Accompanied by Scott Bradley of Cook, Hall & Hyde, he’s been making the rounds of local municipal boards looking to develop interest in the East End Cooperative Health Plan Initiative. Budget busting municipal health care costs -- they could more than double in his village over the next several years, Epley said – spurred an effort to study the most effective ways to offer health care benefits. Recent changes in state insurance law allow public entities, such as town or village governments, or school, fire or library districts to join together to form a Municipal Cooperative Health Benefit Plan. A minimum of three public entities and 2000 total employees is required to form the MCHBP. The self-insured plan will allow participants to “achieve local control, scale, share plan administrative costs and deliver long term taxpayer sustainability,” according to a glossy presentation prepared by the pair. Last month Epley and Bradley appeared before the East Hampton Village Board and last week, they made their case before the Southampton

Town Board. Before launching the plan, the two propose conducting a feasibility study. They asked the village to contribute about $4000 and the town to chip in over $8000. Neither made a commitment to do so. The duo has yet to visit East Hampton Town. Supervisor Bill Wilkinson said that while he’d be happy to offer Epley the chance to speak with his board, “The devil is in the details and scale is a very, very important detail in most insurance rates. I don’t see how a scale of local municipalities can equal the massive scale of New York State.” Still, Wilkinson said he’d be happy to look at any proposal that could offer sustained savings.

SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW
I have a question. As many of you know, I am addicted to Sausage Egg McMuffins. The other day I was standing in a McDonald’s, reading the calorie chart that describes everything (including the Diet Coke) as being over 775 calories. Since I was the only person paying attention to the calorie posting, I’m absolutely sure that if McDonald’s restaurants (you should pardon the expression “restaurants”) were forced by the government to write this warning under every item they offer – “Warning: This Food Can Clog Up Your Veins and Kill You” – they wouldn’t lose a single sale.

either. So where does the food in fast food restaurants come from? If you have seen a delivery truck, or have the answer, please write me and tell me. Otherwise I have to go along with my theory about underground pipes all over America pushing bad fast food into restaurants, which I’m afraid to divulge now lest you have me committed.

www.indyeastend.com

Then it hit me. Where does the food in a McDonald’s come from? It’s clear that all the people working at the McDonald’s are taking out premeasured, pre-weighed meat and fish and chicken. How does this food get to your favorite McDonald’s outlet? Does it come by truck? I have never seen a McDonald’s food truck making a delivery. I have never seen a McDonald’s truck on the road. I have never even seen an unmarked truck delivering food to McDonald’s. Have you? For that matter, I have never seen a Burger King or any other fast food franchise delivery truck on the road,

We went to Palm Beach for the holidays and once again I was reminded about how horrible plane travel has become. So I once again write about my brilliant new airport exercise plan. It’s based upon the fact that I hate to exercise. But if you feel you have to exercise, try my airport security exercise plan, which will have you losing a few pounds in a half hour. Here’s how it works. Get on the security line. Bend down to take off your right shoe. Bend down to take off your left shoe. Bend down to lift your luggage on to the conveyor belt. Bend down to lift your computer bag up to the conveyor belt. Take your computer out of your bag and lift it five times in each hand. Take off your belt and swivel your hips to keep your pants from falling to

your ankles. Put your hands on your hips, up to your chest, back to your hips, ten times. This is because you’re looking in your pants pocket and shirt pocket for your plane ticket and driver’s license to show the guard, who is standing a few feet away from the other guard, who just saw your ticket and driver’s license when you got on that same security line less than 15 seconds ago. Walk past the security device. Then pick up your left shoe and bend down to put it on your left foot. Try to lace it while standing without losing your breath and passing out and falling on your face. Repeat this with your right shoe on your right foot. Back to weightlifting: Pick up your computer, pick up your luggage, hold them over your head and press them like a weightlifter as you run the half mile to your plane’s gate. Now turn around run a half mile back past the security section and get right back on the security line. Do this 10 times until finally the suspicious security guards pull you aside and strip search you, thinking you are a terrorist with Alzheimer’s.

He felt the need to engage in his work more deeply and uninterrupted as well as enjoy his passion for fishing. In 1972 Zucker had embarked on a monumental work called 100-Foot Long Piece. It was created by making eight feet high and one-foot wide section in a different style daily for 100 days. The result was a virtual lexicon of styles.

Once again a student at Pierson High School in Sag Harbor has been named a semi finalist in the prestigious Intel science talent search, and is the only East Ender to garner the honor. Alexa Lantiere, daughter of Theresa and Salvatore Lantiere of Sag Harbor, was chosen last week for her work isolating compounds in the collospongia. Dr. Robert Schumacher, who oversees the research program at Pierson and has guided five previous students to the Intel semifinals explained the folks at Atlantis Aquarium in Riverhead were having trouble with the collospongia, after it was accidentally introduced to a tank. It was impervious to an anemone’s sting, fish wouldn’t eat it and it began to grow right over other animals in the tank. Scuba divers extracted samples of the sponge, Alexa continued. With specimens in hand, the 17-year-old set about extracting all the compounds, then repeatedly testing until a single compound was isolated. Using a filtration process, the senior, who is also an athlete, sent her findings to the University of Mississippi where researchers learned what the compound was made of. With that information Alexa was able to interpret the structure of the compound. She determined the compound has antifouling properties, which keep it free of growth – it’s similar to the paint people put on the bottom of a boat, she explained. The compound also has antibiotic properties, which may have medicinal value. “The curator [at Atlantis] asked us to try and find out why this sponge was so successful in out-competing other organisms,” Dr. Schumacher summarized. “Alexa’s research answered these questions.” A life long resident of Sag Harbor, Alexa has already been accepted to Johns Hopkins University. She plans to major in public health and pursue a pre-med study path. She’ll play field hockey there

Amagansett: The Affordable Apartment Epicenter?
By Kitty Merrill

Recently ardent activist Joan Tulp reminded the East Hampton Town Board that volunteers who love her hamlet have worked for decades to make sure Amagansett “stays the same.” Given the volume of potential – and already approved – development on the horizon, residents of the community nicknamed “I’m Against It” are going to have their work cut out for them. A 40 unit senior affordable housing complex is set to break ground on the south side of Montauk Highway diagonally across from the IGA shopping center on land owned by St. Michael’s Lutheran Church. Next week the East Hampton Town Planning Board will review a new proposal to develop a parcel on the north side of the highway, almost adjacent to the shopping center, with 36 affordable rental apartments in four separate structures. Land next door to that parcel slated to host a controversial music festival this summer may be developed with six upscale abodes and further west, on the site of the defunct Pacific East restaurant, there’s a plan to create a community food education center. Still smarting from the town board’s

approval of the two day music festival on Rick Principi’s farm, last week members of the Amagansett Citizens Advisory Committee learned of still more change – and traffic – on the horizon. “It’s going to be interesting, real interesting,” ACAC chair Rona Klopman predicted. Longtime board watcher and lifelong Amagansett resident Elaine Jones was less circumspect. Speaking of the land Principi will lease for the festival, and the adjacent acreage where he proposes the affordable apartments, she said, “The Town of East Hampton could have bought that property back when Ricky offered it to them and they turned him down. It could have been preserved long before and now look what’s happening.” The rejection of a proposed purchase took place in the 1990s. “We turned it down? Oh, my God, that’s unfortunate,” Councilman Dominick Stanzione intoned after learning of the failed sale. Preservation of the “visually compelling” farm acreage could be something to consider if the community favors such a move, he mused. During the planning process for the St. Michael’s senior housing complex on the south side of the highway, Jones

What’s around the bend? The eastern end of Montauk Highway in Amagansett may be home to not one, but two affordable housing complexes.

expressed deep concerns about whether the developer will be able to ensure safe access to the highway from the site. Learning of the new project, just tenths of a mile east on the north side, she groaned. “If all these plans come

to fruition, oh my God. Amagansett is going to change just like the rest of town.” Principi’s preliminary site plan application for Amagansett Commons Continued on page 28.

EDITORIAL
Stop Fighting Last week’s cover drew a lot of attention and for good reason -- folks in Southampton fear the partisan bickering going on at town hall negatively effects the town board’s ability to govern effectively. On one hand, Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst and Councilwoman Bridget Fleming are in the minority, and they feel they are getting muscled – and they are. But they need to come to grips with that reality. Yes, the Southampton majority gave a party operative a cushy job, and it was a disgraceful display of putting politics over the people. It’s done, and it’s time to move on. The people will ultimately decide how egregious the error was. The Republicans, by virtue of their elections, owe a debt to the voters of this community. The way to repay it is to govern for the good of the people, not the party. Throne-Holst is a dedicated leader – there is no reason why she shouldn’t have bipartisan approval for the bulk of her initiatives. The griping, sniping, and snipping going on needs to stop, and stop now. All concerned should realize this is an election year – and voters across the country have shown little patience for incumbent politicians who don’t hear their voices. Let’s Rock It’s hard to believe after hearing all the brouhaha coming out of Amagansett, but staging rock concerts is hardly unique to this part of the world. Just three years ago five of the biggest acts in the world played on five of the busiest Saturdays of the summer at The Ross School. The town granted permits in the quiet of the off-season under then-Supervisor Bill McGintee, and nary a word of protest was heard except from a few charities that were concerned the draw of the concert would hurt fund raising events. Social, the name of the promoter, turned out to be the creation of Joe Meli and his Bulldog Entertainment. Prince, Dave Mathews, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and the others came and went without a ripple, thank you. No one urinated in public, no one was arrested for sleeping on the beach, and the town wasn’t overrun by teenagers or hippies. A proposed two day concert in Amagansett this August is much smaller in scope, but the feeling lingers the two Sag Harbor promoters don’t have the money or experience to pull it off. As it turns out Warner Music Group quietly financed the whole enchilada, paying the acts a million dollars apiece and maybe more. Ross School officials said they were merely leasing space to the promoters and were not involved in the actual production, though the founder of Ross School is the widow of former of a former CEO of Time Warner. As it turned out WMG reportedly took a $30 million hit on the project. Perhaps there is a deep-pocket sponsor or promoter waiting in the wings with the big bucks needed to make the Amagansett concerts happen as well. It really doesn’t matter, though, as long as the $100,000 earmarked for local charities is put up before the music starts playing. Neighbors have a right to be heard. Their voices are being drowned out by those who oppose the concerts for political reasons. Baseless rumors are now being repeated as fact, by the same people who insisted Bill McGintee did nothing wrong, by the same people who oppose everything the current town board does. Their concerns would carry more weight if they stuck to the facts. Comparing this concert to Woodstock, for example, is silly, as is the business of people urinating all over. As for the hordes of young people who would descend on the town, we envision a sea of Ralph Lauren clad older folk with tangerine and puce cashmere sweaters draped across their shoulders. We don’t envision any public tinkling – it might splash on their Italian loafers. As for traffic, between the train, private busses, and car pooling it should be bearable. It is not true Montauk Highway is the only exit way – cars can head north, eventually to Abrahams Path and points west, including Sag Harbor, Scuttlehole, and Noyac. We also suspect most of the attendees will already be here and not coming from points west. Anyway if Billy Joel, the promoters’ first choice, is the headliner, we’d be more worried about him driving to and fro than anyone else. We hope the promoters have been candid and upfront about their plans and goals – and where all this money is really coming from. That said, Count us in. We’re hoping it will be a fun event. It’s the summer, and we’re an international vacation resort – we should have world class entertainment we can all enjoy.

Hunters and the Hunted
Letter to Editor, After reading about the recently staged deer hunting protest at Town Hall, I came to a realization -- the hunting/anti-hunting debate will likely never end. Much of what is said, I think, is based on emotion, with neither side providing solid, scientific evidence. At times, false, misleading and/ or incorrect information is put forth. Case in point – the anti-hunters’ handout stated that, “numerous studies around the country have found that about half the deer hit by arrows are wounded and left to die a slow, agonizing death.” That statement is purely intended to stir emotions and is sheer propaganda lacking scientific backing. Someone once said the hunting/anti-hunting argument almost invariably leads to a draw, because the heart of the whole thing is an emotional decision. It is truly a belief system, just like religion, and systems of belief cannot be conclusively debated. I am a responsible, ethical hunter and believe the idea that outlawing legal forms of hunting is impractical and misguided. No other method of wildlife management is as practical or as effective. The monies generated from hunting and fishing licenses, permits and taxes go a long way toward the protection of habitat, law enforcement and the management of wildlife populations which would otherwise explode to unhealthy levels. Without those dollars, as well as contributions by organizations like Ducks Unlimited, the National Wild Turkey Federation, Pheasants Forever and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, many of the wild places and wildlife

numbers would simply not exist. Hunting and fishing are legitimate, traditional outdoor activities enjoyed by millions of good moral people. I’ve been hunting for 50 years and shared that passion with family, friends, artists, carpenters, doctors, policemen, lawyers, teachers, a psychiatrist and even a judge. We are your neighbors. We enjoy nature and its bounty of fish and game around the dinner table. We also donate deer to the local food pantry. We do not wish to force everyone to share our beliefs or commitment to our outdoor heritage; we wish simply to be left alone to enjoy this intimate connection with nature. I am a member and advocate of The East Hampton Sportsmen’s Alliance, a NYS Not for Profit Corporation formed to preserve and protect the longstanding traditions of hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities in East Hampton. The Alliance is dedicated to responsible and ethical hunting and fishing and promotes donating deer to the local food pantries. The State recognizes responsible hunting as the most valuable method of deer herd management. Hunters are regulated by the State’s Department of Environmental Conservation and are required to report all deer taken. This invaluable information is used by the State for deer herd evaluation and management. The gross overpopulation of deer in East Hampton is documented by the NYSDEC and is very obvious by the decline of their natural food sources and the increased destruction of our crops, nurseries and landscaping. A quote from a 2002 NYSDEC article on the white tailed deer perfectly describes today’s conditions in East Hampton: “A burgeoning deer population causes increased problems for people and impairs the condition of individual animals. High deer populations also reduce biodiversity and damage the habitat for themselves as well as that of other wildlife. Each year, white-tailed deer cause millions of dollars in damage to crops and personal property in New York, and are involved in tens of thousands of deer/vehicle collisions.” The hunter/anti-hunter debate is an emotional issue, just like religion, and it will continue. My hope is that my fellow hunters and I can all practice our traditions. DAVID DISUNNO The East Hampton Sportsmen’s Alliance

Out-striped
Dear Rick, Bravo for your Editorial on Quigley’s “Accessory Apartment” legislation. Thank you for outlining the problems so clearly and succinctly. And, you can add another reason to that list: the environment is not only affected by “how” we use it, but by how many people are using it. East Hampton has far outstripped its capacity under our current infrastructure. We are not a sustainable community, and have no hope of being one if our overall population is increased. Thank you again, SUSAN HARDER

Distorted And Abused
Dear Rick, It’s about time. An attempt is finally being made to return the distorted and much abused filibuster to its original intent. It is being pursued by Democrats; little surprise. The goal is to return the Filibuster to its original intent and form; a “Mr. Smith Comes to Washington” format of standing up, speaking continuously, “Talking out a bill.” For political expediency it has been distorted to merely suggest the Filibuster procedure, sit down and assume a Filibuster. Never has this distorted procedure been more abused than by our last Republican minority Congress. They have raised their “Up Yours” filibuster finger to an art form never even closely equaled in the history of the procedure thus destroying any bill proposed by President Obama. Indeed killing any bill even of their own, if presented by President Obama. Shameful but not surprisingly so. Obviously this Weapon of Massive Bill Destruction could not be altered while the Republicans maintained and abused it. But now it may be returned to it’s original form. The Democrats are now the minority in the House. They are willing to do the honorable thing and deprive themselves of this underhanded political scam. They would revert the Filibuster to its original form. Republicans one would think, would be happy to agree. It may require some time however since the Republican “NO” House of Representatives would have to resort to a thesaurus to learn how to express and spell

Not Interchangeable
Dear Rick and the Powers That Be, What a difference one word can make! Thanks for publishing my letter (1-5-11) titled “Fringe Groups” about religious communities,’ “commitment towards protection of marriage as a union of one man and one woman.” Religious leaders affirmed the importance of preserving marriage’s unique meaning and reinforcing the fundamental cell of human society. So far so good, Rick. But someone blew it at the Indy and changed one important word of my letter in the next to last paragraph. It should have read, “stand up for marriage, and true values, and their unchangeable meanings. By your writing the word “interchangeable” the Pope gave me a call from the Vatican: I’ve been ex-communicated. Thanks a lot! JACK MCGREEVY

Rick’sTIDINGS Space LOW
I’m not much of a weeper. Sure, I threw my share of temper tantrums when I was, like, five years-old. I’d usually wail about something trivial, like a gumball. “Mom, can I have a gumball?” I’d ask as we’d pass the machine. “No honey, it’s not good for your teeth.” “But I still have my baby teeth. They are all gonna fall out anyway!” “Not today, honey!” “WAHHHHH! WAHHHHH! WAHHH! “PLEASE can I have a gumball? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!” “No, dear.” I remember thinking to myself, “It costs a freakin’ penny. How cheap can this ho be, anyway?” At the time that little gumball was the most important thing in the world to me. But you grow up, you mature, you move on. Most of us are guided by a simple philosophy: men don’t cry. Girls? That’s OK. You can cry. After all, you’re a girl. Girls can make a point by crying. It’s especially poignant if they have eye makeup on, which runs down their cheeks and make them grotesque looking horror film creatures from Night Of The Living Dead or Chuckie The Mascara Head. You all know where this is going: John Boehner. The new Speaker of the House is, as the NY Post now calls him, the Weeper of the House. First he

by Rick Murphy

“Mr. Speaker! Should we recommend a counter attack to the president?” Boehner: “Wah! Wah! Smell my tears (sob) . . . smell my tears and tell me you still find me attractive.” Naturally, Boehner jokes are all over late night television and the internet. We won’t repeat the vulgar ones here, because this newspaper, as most of you know, is about taste and class. Here are a few of the more benign: With a name like that, do you think it was hard growing up? Nice guy, but he seems a bit stiff. His campaign slogan is “four more tears.” Crying isn’t Boehner’s only problem – his color has become a real issue. That’s because he is orange, one of the few in his race - Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy is also orange, by the way. Both men are direct descendants of Carrot Top, though neither inherited his sense of humor (such as it is). Boehner joins a long list of Washington DC officials whose names are double entendres including, Bush, Dick Cheney, and Representative Wilbur PeePeeStick (Ok, OK, I made that one up). When you think about it, it says a lot that an orange crybaby could be elected to public office although he’s from Ohio, and maybe folks out there think it’s normal. I just don’t think he’d play very well in New York City. I mean, the first time he gets held up at knifepoint on the subway he’ll flood the entire system.

Please Don’t Make Me Cry

started crying on “60 Minutes,” and I just assumed he saw all the wrinkles on Mike Wallace’s face and burst into tears. But no, there he was last week at the podium of the House of Representatives, bawling like a baby with a bad rash. Maybe it’s just me, but I find it particularly galling a man whose name is pronounced “Boner” cries in public – any man with that name has a reputation to uphold for all the rest of us. It’s a testosterone thing. I give you as evidence a study released last week. “Tears A Turnoff,” Newsday reported. When a woman cries, the study concluded, her tears “Lower his testosterone level.” To prove that they had men sniff - you read it correctly, SNIFF -- the tears of women who had been watching a sad movie. The men found the women “less sexually attractive.” What does this have to do with Boehner? Well, if a women’s tears lower a man’s testosterone level, what must his own tears do to him? This Boehner guy may well be stashing a vagina under his belt. It is particularly irksome that a leader of our country is a serial crier. Think of the repercussions: “Mr. Speaker, Nor th Korea is threatening to launch a nuclear bomb at us!” Boehner starts sobbing uncontrollably.

by your ‘truths’ and by doing that your life inspires others to live in their “truth.” SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 22) What gets you excited and sparks you to take action? Things like feelings are stirring inside you and now is the time for you to take action on those feelings. Yes, it would be easy to ignore them and live without all that messy emotional stuff – yet isn’t it that very stuff that makes life worth living? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) There is an old Zen saying that goes like this: “The difference between pain and sorrow is – pain is something that we experience in a moment, sorrow is when we drag that pain into the next moment.” It seems a little harsh, yet there is some wisdom in there. Some old wounds would like to heal; yet we keep dragging them back up by telling the same sad story or by replaying things in our minds again and again. Allow the old wounds to heal, they want to heal, allow the past to be just that – the past. CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 - Jan. 20) It would be nice if you could find some kind of balance: a balance between giving and receiving, between complete independence and complete dependence upon another. That balance point is called inter-dependency. If you are feeling burnt out you have probably given too much (co-dependence), and rather than over-compensating and shifting all the way to complete detachment, figure out the inter-dependency thing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19) Okay, it is time to make a list. Several of them in fact. This week’s energy is such that it will be easy for you to lose your way unless you have a very clear list of what is important. Write down things you would

by Asher Lee
ARIES (Mar. 20 - Apr. 20) This week if you stumble you need to get right back up and in the game. None of this giving up stuff. And really try not to get into looking at what other people have or don’t have or are doing or not doing, blah, blah, blah. Keep yourself focused on you and your life and try hard to remember how many successes you have had that have led you to this place. TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 21) A time of great rewards is coming for you and all you have to do right now is be very patient. Take slow and steady action – all that good one foot in front of the other stuff – and just keep plugging along. Soon you will see that it has all been worth it, you just need to make sure you don’t give up and that you don’t get impatient and try to force things, or control things. Slow and steady is your only job this week.

getting things done – accomplished, not about learning new skills. There will be other times to learn; right now it’s about getting real with yourself about who you are RIGHT NOW. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 23) This week you can know for sure that any anxiety you are feeling will be directly related to how creatively you are looking at your life or a situation. Your point of power is in the center of yourself and there very well may be lots of outside things that could distract you from that point. The way to stay centered is to be connected to some kind of creative/fluid thing. Work through your anxiety by finding one simple creative thing to do. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) This week is a perfect time for some spring/winter-cleaning. You can do this on a large scale or small, your choice; just make sure you are open to the letting go part of things. Everything from stuff in your closets that you no longer have a use for all the way through relationships that no longer serve you are open to the cleansing. Let go of what you know you need to. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) It is your job to set things up and bring your beliefs and ideals to the table. Live by those things that you truly believe and become an example to others as you make choices from your ideals. It’s not about getting anyone else to believe that way you do -- it is about living

Today’s Birthday: Dolly Parton, 1946

GEMINI (May 21 - June 22) Stable and balanced change is the way to go. You want to take your time and it is okay for things to take as long as they need to. Resist the urge to try to force anything. Things are going along just fine – for real. The changes are inevitable, so stay in sync with how things are unfolding. CANCER (June 22 - July 23) It is time to get very honest with yourself about what you can and can’t do. It’s about

like to accomplish over the next week and then put them in order of importance. The hardest part will be trying to stay connected to those priorities yet it will be the best way to not get lost inside your own life. PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) It really isn’t about defending yourself. The holding back thing isn’t going to work at least not as far as getting hurt goes, or people finding out your secrets. This is a time of allowing yourself to be exposed and yes, the dreaded ‘v’ word – vulnerable. Choose not to defend yourself, choose to reveal yourself instead. NOTE: If you were born at the end or beginning of a sign, read the sign before or after your birthday. Asher Lee is a professional Astrologer and Tarot reader.

* Indicates a Miles Top choice. Coming Soon The Dilemma (PG-13) The trouble with comedic actors is they keep taking rolls

written to utilize their comic gifts and eventually run into scripts that aren’t funny. Vince Vaughn and Kevin James, say hello to The Dilemma. Director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer should have known better. On paper it’s a good one – the cast, for example, is brimming with big names: Jennifer Connelly, Winona Ryder, Channing Tatum and Queen Latifah to name a few. Even the plot sounds enticing: a man discovers his best friend’s

wife is cheating on him. It’s the slapstick execution and the lack of legitimately funny dialogue that dooms this turkey. It’ll be on DVD in a month.

Best Movie and Best Director. It’s a good one. Now Playing The Green Hornet (PG-13) Seth Rogen does the Green Hornet with predictable results – it’s silly but he’s likeable. The action adventure moves along replete with the requisite special effects, bad guys (the mob and heroin dealers) and pretty co-star Cameron Diaz. Barney’s Version (R) Paul Giametti stars as a ver y unlikable, uncouth television producer reflecting on his life as death approaches. It’s a bit overdone, but the cast led by Dustin Hoffman and Minnie Driver is solid and the character, though a cad, has his charms.

Bay Street Bay Street Theatre is pleased to announce that actor Chris Bauer has joined the Board of Trustees. “To have an actor of Chris’s talent and integrity on our stage,” say Artistic Directors Sybil Christopher and Murphy Davis, “is a terrific privilege and the fact that he is excited and eager to serve on our Board of Directors is all the more heartening. We feel so lucky and thank Chris for his incredible belief in and support of Bay Street Theatre.” Bauer, a native of Los Angeles, honed his skills in Chicago with such ensembles as Steppenwolf Theatre Company and The Goodman Theatre. After graduating from Yale School of Drama, he moved to New York where he became a member of David Mamet’s Atlantic Theatre Company appearing in Mojo and Parlor Song, among others. He was on Broadway in A Streetcar Named Desire. Other New York appearances

include Playwright’s Horizons Theater and Manhattan Theater Club. Film credits include Snow White: A Tale of Terror, Face/Of, Devil’s Advocate, Flawless, 8 MM, Animal Factory, High Fidelity, Broken Flowers, Flags of Our Fathers, and The Conspirators. Says Bauer of his experience at Bay Street, “I was thrilled with the openness and intelligence of Bay Street’s audience when I did Romance last summer. It made me proud to be a resident of Sag Harbor and I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve on Bay Street Theatre’s Board.” In addition to his theatrical and film work, Bauer is also known by television audiences for his current role as Andy Bellefleur in “True Blood.” He also appeared as Frank Sobotka in HBO’s “The Wire.” “We are thrilled to welcome Chris aboard,” says Executive Director Tracy Mitchell. “Chris appeared in our production of Romance last summer delighting our audiences. We are so fortunate that he also happens to be a Sag Harbor resident who is extremely dedicated to Bay Street and our community.”

Windsor, the most common style of tying a necktie, is linked to global warming. If 90 out of 100 men that wear ties regularly were to switch to bowties (especially pink ones with yellow polka dots) we could save the life of at least one polar bear. Someone seriously needs to invent a hover board: I don’t know what the problem is but everyone that I know has been begging for hover board since the 80s. I am sure that every major scientist is just nerdy enough to have seen Back To The Future 2 and 3. So why do we still not have one? It has been two decades! What’s the hold up? Not only will they become the more popular mode of transportation and reduce the amount of cars on the road, but also I am sure that hover boards will also be fuel-efficient, reduce green house gasses, and separate your recyclables on the weekend or whatever. Make this happen! Dry Tee-Shirt Contests: They may not sound as fun as their current, wasteful counterpart, but the Dry Tee-shirt contest would be the greener alternative for any eco-conscious college across the United States and the Caribbean.

I have never been a fan of bicyclists or bicycles. But while I was digging my car out from under a mountain of snow for the second time in a few short weeks I couldn’t help but wish that it was some bicyclist digging his bicycle out from under a mountain of snow instead of me. At the same time I couldn’t help but feel slightly guilty digging out a machine that, at least partially, has aided in the frequency of these storms. It is pretty well known now that global warming has been a contributing factor in the severity of the weather in our world. Granted I am not driving an SUV or a Hummer, but that is mostly because I am a writer and cannot afford it. If I could afford it I would probably drive a monster truck and crush the twelve-pound toy car I currently drive and the snow that covers it. But these are simple musings.

As the oldest English settlement in the state and one of the oldest towns in New York, Southampton has an abundance of historical burial grounds boasting museum quality gravestones. Some markers even date back to the town’s founding in the mid-17th century. Stating, “The preservation of these sacred and historic resources is of vital importance,” members of the town board voted earlier this month to establish a town historical burial ground committee. The committee is charged with preserving, recording and disseminating information about the gravestones. They’ll also establish best practices for the care of the mortuary artifacts and reach out to volunteers looking to learn more about town cemeteries. The move this month is part of an ongoing town cemetery project. Check Town Clerk Sundy Schermeyer’s section of the town website and click on cemeteries to learn more about the project. K.M.

Bowling For Dollars
The Third Annual Empty Bowls fundraiser dishes up a good time, and hearty helpings of sumptuous soup at the Springs Firehouse this Sunday from noon to 3 PM. Grab a spoon and bowl and head over to Fort Pond Boulevard for a taste of some of the finest concoctions created by over a dozen local eateries, caterers, shops and delis. Tickets are just $10 for adults, $5 for children over five. Also on tap for the afternoon are a bake sale, music with DJ Matt Cross, a 50/50 raffle, and an art project with Trish Franey. Proceeds of the event benefit The Springs Seedlings. Sponsored by the after school program Project MOST, Springs Seedlings teaches students about sustainable food through hands on activities like growing vegetables. K.M.

Apartment epicenter
Contuned from page 10. Affordable Housing was submitted to the town last month. It seeks approval to construct four structures with a combined building coverage of 18,950 square feet. Of the 36 apartments proposed, 24 units will boast two bedrooms, while 12 harbor a single bedroom. “The buildings look like barracks,” Klopman opined. Promoters of the Amagansett Food Institute have yet to file any applications with the town. However, they met last year with representatives of the local food pantry in an effort

to garner support for the project. The “edible manhattan” website described AFI’s goal: “Funding to buy the Pacific East property on Amagansett’s Main Street and replace it with a new community food education center with a professional kitchen open 24-hours a day to qualified users; space to meet, for demonstrations, lectures, classes; a farmers market; possibly a cafe.” The AFI website also lists a food pantry and wine, beer and cheese making among activities a center might offer. Jones believes zoning will put the kibosh on the culinary institute proposal. Burdened by a pre-existing non-conforming use designation, a property can lose its commercial use if it ceases to be operational for a certain period of time. Both Jones and Klopman noted the restaurant has not opened in a number of years. ACAC will likely send representatives to the planning boards meeting next week, when the affordable housing plan is slated to be discussed, Klopman said. It’s on the agenda for the CAC’s February meeting as well. to comment on this story in real time, visit www.indyeastend.com, click on this headline, and scroll to the bottom of the page.

Shells to Pay
Continued from page 4. handicap accessible, no office walls, no walls period,” the supervisor said. Lamenting the legacy of unfinished buildings, Wilkinson said he doubts he’ll ever have the money, while he is supervisor to complete the houses. “I have assets right now I have no choice but to let atrophy. There’s no money to maintain them, no money to restore them.”
ON THE COVER: Pretty, pointless: East Hampton Town paid almost $1 million for property for this historic house. No one in the current administration can find a plan that outlines what it’s supposed to be used for. At left, background, sits another shell of a structure the town doesn’t have the money to complete. Beyond that? Ghost town hall.

Q Traveler Watchman

Further, he criticized his predecessor for failing to detail any plans for the structures, much less how to pay for their completion. “This is indicative of a town that was reactive rather than living within a discipline of long term planning,” Wilkinson said. And that’s not all. When McGintee heralded his scheme to cobble donated historic buildings together to create a new town hall, he offered a vague description of the future of the original town hall. East Hampton officials could sell off-site office suites that house a number of departments -- planning, building, assessors, tax receivers and natural resources -- and move them over

to the old building when he and the town board decamped to newly refurbished digs. Trouble is, Wilkinson pointed out, there was no plan in any town board files describing how the grand move might work. Last year the supervisor found an engineer who offered to assess what it might take to make repairs to the aging building in advance of such a departmental switcheroo. He estimated it would cost $1 million. “And that doesn’t even get in to the reconfiguration to fit the departments,” Budget Officer Len Bernard informed. That’s just to pay to fix the roof and crumbling walls. As far as Bernard and Wilkinson can tell, the prior administration never consulted with any architect or engineer or any department heads on the scheme. “There was no plan,” Bernard declared. “If it was in somebody’s mind, we don’t know whose it is. Basically we have all these buildings, but they’re not usable. They’re just sitting there. This kind of stuff should have been thought about.” Town officials are thinking hard now and trying to come up with outside-thebox methods to complete the projects. One strategy may involve finding donors to underwrite the cost of a project in exchange for having the building named after them. In the meantime, as the structures sit fallow, town taxpayers continue to cover the cost of highway and parks department crews assigned to mow the lawns, rake the leaves and clear snow from the otherwise uninhabited properties. And there may be still more house headaches in the town board’s feature.

There’s a residence on Keyes Island in Springs that could be due for maintenance and Boys Harbor in the Northwest section of East Hampton hosts a variety of outbuildings that must be razed, plus a community building in need of renovations to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars. There’s also the Amagansett Life Saving Station, the future of which has been the subject of heated debate. It needs an estimated $500,000 worth of work before it can be used. . . and once the work is completed, exactly how will it be used?

Independent / Kitty Merrill

Congressman Tim Bishop (at podium, center) was among a contingent of dignitaries “coming together for civility” on the steps of Southampton Town Hall last Friday. Expressing sympathy in reaction to the shootings in Arizona and making a vow to keep public discourse respectful were the morning’s themes. Over a dozen elected officials, as well as representatives from area school districts, police and fire departments, and the clergy, as well as children from the elementary school nearby braved frigid temperatures to attend the brief outing, which was cut short when Chief Robert Coughlan of the Quogue Village PD (bottom row, far right) collapsed. He was rushed to the hospital via ambulance. Later Friday, Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst reported the chief, who had been suffering from the flu, was treated and released from the hospital and was expected to be fine. K.M.

Back To Earth For Lady Bonackers
By Rick Murphy

The East Hampton Lady Bonackers, the Cinderellas of League VI thus far this season, knew they had their hands full with mighty John Glenn coming to Bubbyville last Thursday. Glenn, after all, was 10-0, sat a top the league standings and has very much looked the part of a county title contender. The home team, 4-0 in the league and winners of seven of eight going in, perhaps were a little jacked up for the affair; they came out skittish, and allowed Glenn a double digit lead, one the visitors never relinquished. The finale was 55-45. Allison McKenna once again proved to be the brightest star in the Glenn dynasty, drilling 26 points and grabbing 11 rebounds for the winners, Kaelyn Ward, who has been in fire, tallied 22 points for the locals. The Lady Mariners of Southampton came away from the North Fork satisfied on Friday, getting a much-needed League VII win against Mattituck. The locals used a 14-4 third quarter run to open up a lead and withheld a late charge by the Lady Tuckers to prevail 49-42. Kesi Goree finished with 21 points and tallied 10 during the third quarter run. Goree also controlled the paint with 15 boards and two blocks. Paris Hodges added 19 points and five steals for the losers. Hampton Bays put up a good fight Thursday at Babylon but lost 61- 53. MacKenzie Vickers had 20 points and 15 rebounds for the winner. The dynamic duo for the Baywoman, Theresa Carey (24) and Alexis Fotopolous combined for 38. Westhampton had better luck in Mount Sinai, coming away with a 39-22 victory behind Haley Laube (14 points) and Kristen Polan, 12. On Friday Southold crushed Ross 50-22 at home — all 11 players on the team scored, led by Nicole Busso with 9 points. Pierson is rolling -- Friday’s 67-19 annihilation of Port Jefferson at home, 67-19 a case in point. The Whalers actually pitched a first quarter shutout, jumping out to a 22-0 lead after the first stanza. Samantha James had 13 points, Nina Hemby 11, Sarah Barrett 10 and Bridget Canavan 10 for victorious Lady Whalers. The locals sit in first place in League VIII with a 4-0 mark. Shelter Island and Southold are 1-2 and The Ross School 0-2. Southampton (2-2), Hampton Bays (13) and Mattituck (0-4) are all chasing

Bees In Jeopardy Of Missing Playoffs
By Rick Murphy

THE INDEPENDENT

Q Traveler Watchman

www.indyeastend.com

It seems like a lifetime ago when the Bridgehampton Killer Bees owned the Long Island Class D title, and on eight occasions, the New York State Class D championship as well. That was before the Greenport Porters took over, relegating the Bees to an afterthought for over a decade. But schools are growing, and as of this season there are only three Class D (lowest enrollment) on the entire island – The Bees, and two teams they historically dominated, Shelter Island and The Ross School. But any thought the Bees had of coasting into the state playoffs came into question on January 7, when the Bridgehampton barely survived an upset, getting by Shelter Island 39-38 on the loser’s court. Four days later, however, doubt turned to despair. The Ross School came into the fabled Beehive – where the Bees were once unbeatable – and didn’t just come away

with a victory – Ross came away with a laugher, a 73-49 slaughter. Ross opened up a double-digit lead early on, had a 17-point halftime bulge, and coasted from there. As is the norm the scoring came primarily Brandon Pettaway (22) and Liam Chatsky (20). It wasn’t so much what the winners did, but what the Bees didn’t do: “We played soft,” lamented Assistant Coach Joe Zucker. Canaan Campbell, one of the county’s top scorers popped for 18. Mikah Hemby added 15 in a losing cause. Alas, Ross couldn’t stand the largesse, losing to Southold at home Friday 54-48. Pettaway (13) and Chatsky combined for 24: Winston Wilcenski led a balanced attack for the winners with 17 points, eight rebounds, and four assists. Alex Conway added 15 points for the Settlers. It got even worse for Bridgehampton Thursday. A long bus ride to Stony Brook Academy for a 7:30 PM game proved to the start of a long night. Stony Brook

rocked 77-32 despite Campbell’s 17 points. That same night Greenport took the short ferry ride over to Shelter Island to secure an effortless 72-43 win. All Long Island candidate Dantre Langhorne had 19 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists and five blocked shots and is being recruited by Division One colleges including Hofstra. The six-foot, six-inch guard may well be the best player to come out of the East End since Maurice Manning, who led Bridgehampton to three state titles during the nineties. Tremayne Hansen added 20 points and had 14 rebounds for the winners. Jimmy Reed had 13 points for the Islanders. Bonac Shows Life Don’t look now but the East Hampton Bonackers, League VI cellar dwellers, are showing signs of life under first year coach Bill McKee. After losing a tough one to undefeated Amitywille on January 6 the locals traveled to Elwood/Glenn and came home with a 60-47 victory. East Hampton is, in the words of assistant coach Bob Vacca, “a team in love with the threes.” Against Amityville, only eight of 24 three-point attempts fell. At Glenn, it was raining threes again – and this time they were falling through the hoop. Sophomore Thomas King, and emerging star who has been Bonac’s best player, was on fire, netting a career high 35 points. He saved the best for last, scoring 14 fourth quarter points as Bonac went on run 25-8 fourth to erase a four point deficit. King dropped in five of the team’s 10

treys and added seven rebounds. Mariners Come On The Southampton Mariners are also coming on. Thursday they knocked Mattituck out of first place in League VII 59-55 at home. Credit freshman standout Shaundell Fishburn, who went off for 28. Westhampton also enjoyed the home cooking Thursday, moving to 3-2 in League VI with a 70-65 win over Mt. Sinai. Michael Corrigan, who is among the county’s top scorers, netted 26 points and Nick Grant added 15 points. Senior Jesse Schultz scored 19 points, including the dagger in the heart a three-point play with a minute left to give the locals a one-point lead. Schultz also did it in the paint, snaring 17 rebounds. Baymen Confident The Hampton Bays Baymen had to be a confident bunch when Babylon came to town Friday. After all, the visitors had won only one of eight games. As it turned out, though, nothing went right and Babylon earned a much needed 61- 40 win. Luke Mercurio was a bright spot for the losers with 16 points. Undefeated Amityville (8-0) is 5-0 in League VI. Westhampton is 3-2 (4-6 overall) and East Hampton 1-4 (2-6 overall). Southampton (3-0) by virtue of its win over Mattituck moved into first place in League VII. The Mariners are a sparkling 7-1 overall. Mattituck fell to 4-1 (8-2). Hampton Bays is 2-3 in league play and sports a 5-5 mark for the season. Greenport is running away with the League VIII title with a 5-0 mark. The Porters are unbeaten in eight games. Southold is 3-1 (5-3 overall). Ross is 2-1, (3-3). Bridgehampton, Pierson, and Shelter Island are all winless in league play with identical 0-4 marks.

Coach Ed Petrie poses with one of his championship teams. He is slated to be honored tomorrow beginning at 6 PM at the East Hampton High School Gym.

Continued from page 5. Discussing the plan in Southampton last Friday, Bradley noted a variety of ways in which is would be superior to the New York State Health Insurance Program. Many local municipalities utilize the Empire Plan, as NYSHIP is also known. Bradley was in the news three years ago, when he touted Empire’s attributes in a presentation to an irate East Hampton Town Board. Readers may recall that

eye Insurance

town board was enraged when members learned disgraced former supervisor Bill McGintee snookered them into voting to switch the town’s insurance coverage from the self insured plan to NYSHIP. For the next two years, the town paid Cook, Hall & Hyde some $50,000 a year to act as a facilitator of the Empire Plan. When Wilkinson took office last year, he eliminated the stipend. So far, only Southampton Village has signed on to contribute to the study. kmerrill@indyeastend.com

MindedSports
By Pete Mundo
The past few months have been trying for the New York Yankees. A season that ended short of the World Series, being spurned by free agent Cliff Lee, the messy Derek Jeter contract negotiations, and questions regarding Andy Pettitte’s passion to pitch in 2011 are a few of the issues that have surrounded them. Only Charlie Sheen had it worse these past few months (although he may beg to differ). We expected a quiet offseason in Flushing, but we anticipated the Bombers would introduce at least one big name prior to spring training. They remained quiet until late last week when Rafael Soriano was added to the bullpen. While at first glance this was nothing more than the addition of a set-up man, it was actually a move that has ramifications throughout the roster. The contract (3 years/$35 million) certainly seems absurd for a set-up man, even though Soriano led the AL in saves in 2010 (45) and posted a 1.73 ERA. Soriano presumably had options to sign as a closer for $10+ million per year. So if the Yankees wanted him to

Independent

The Rafael Soriano Ramifications
be their bridge to Rivera, they had to pay him like a closer (and we all know they had some extra pennies lying around after missing out on Cliff Lee). By signing Soriano, the Yankees may have found their late inning specialist for this season and next, their closer in the post-Rivera era, and simultaneously added to their starting rotation. Outside of Mariano Rivera, the Yankee bullpen was suspect in 2010. Until Kerry Wood came to town midseason, there was no clear cut set-up man for Rivera. Wood left for Chicago earlier this off-season and the Bronx Bombers have had a void to fill ever since. Soriano, who was the closer for the AL East champion Tampa Bay Rays last season, is already battle tested in the toughest division in baseball. Life after Mariano Rivera has been both contemplated and feared by Yankee fans for the past five years. But Rivera’s rubber arm has held up through the age of forty-one. This off-season, Mo signed a two year/$30 million deal. Is that his final contract? Probably, but we thought
We Specialize In Hard To Find Cesspools

that last time he signed a contract. But if it is, Soriano would have one year left on his deal when Rivera retires and could slide right into the closer’s role. With Andy Pettitte informing the Yankees not to expect him in spring training and Cliff Lee residing south on the Turnpike, there are a couple of holes to fill in a Yankee rotation that struggled down the stretch. With Soriano now owning the eighth inning, Joba Chamberlain may very well slide back into a starting role. His path from starter to reliever to starter to reliever and now potentially back to starter is not ideal for career development. But if the Yankees can lower their expectations and accept him as a number four starter, this could be a seamless transition. But, hey, maybe in two years, Rivera is still posting an ERA under 2.00, Rafael Soriano does his best Carl Pavano impression, and Felix Hernandez is winning a Cy Young award in pinstripes. If that’s the case, then what’s another $11.5 million/year for Rafael Soriano? Probably about the same as an extended weekend in Vegas for Charlie Sheen.
