By Dan RattinerEverybody loves Pumpkintown. It shows

up on a 40-acre piece of farmland in WaterMill every September and is here for sixweeks. All the kids and parents love itbecause of its slides to go on, hay bales tojump on, castles to climb on, school busesand backhoes to drive in, corn mazes to getthrough, pumpkins to pick up, pirate ships towalk on, pony rides to take, jams, jellies, cornand pumpkins to buy, and evenSnow White and the SevenDwarfs to meet. Pumpkintownsticks around until the firstweek in November, then itshuts up shop and goes away.

Of course, Pumpkintowncould be in violation of a fewlocal laws. Authorities areinvestigating. The castle maybe in violation of town heightlimits and pyramid laws. Plansfor it were apparently neversubmitted to the ArchitecturalReview Board. Women’s rights may also beviolated if, for example, a princess is held inthe castle against her will. There is also thematter of the plumbing. There is no runningwater in the castle.

Near the castle is a wooden dump truckthat has never been properly registered orinspected. Where the motor is supposed to bethere is none, so there may be a criminal

matter involving a stolen motor, or maybethe investigation will lead to some sort ofchop shop. People sit in the truck but it does-n’t go anywhere, which may be in violation oftraffic obstruction laws, especially as theypertain to emergency vehicles. There are noblinkers, windshield wipers, brakes or even ahorn. The truck lacks any parking stickers. Itcould be parked illegally. We just don’t know.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs are on

the property, but they’re two-dimensional onposter board attached to sticks. Has SnowWhite been run over? Have the Dwarfs? Isthere a steamroller hidden somewhere?There does not appear to be any permit forharboring dwarfs at Pumpkintown.

Police say that cheers and screams of joyby children seem to be in violation of noiseordinances. It is questionable whether all

the running around on the property is legal,and whether insurance papers have beenfiled properly.

And who takes the garbage out?The pirate ship, a sea-faring vessel, has

somehow been brought to the site and set ondry land. The Coast Guard says there is noregistration sticker on the boat. Also, there isno parking permit or any other permit thatwould allow any vessel, particularly a pirate

ship, to be on land. There alsoseem to be no life jackets, liferings or flares on the boat.

The hay bales are suspect.Have they been sprayed withnon-toxic-yet-toxic chemicalsto rid themselves of ladybugsand spiders and things?Apparently not.

And where arePumpkintown’s schools?There’s this school bus. But itnever goes anywhere.

As far as the Town ofSouthampton is concerned, Pumpkintown isin violation of all sorts of local laws. It has nosidewalks or public roads, which arerequired of all public complexes in town.Pumpkintown lacks a police department. Ithas no legal documents that show that it isincorporated. And it has no documents thatshow that it is not incorporated. It is in great

Yay, Pumpkintown

Pumpkintown could be inviolation of a few local laws.Authorities are investigating.

violation of town assembly laws. Every daymore than 500 people come to Pumpkintown,yet it has never applied for a permit for pub-lic assembly. It is highly unlikely that onewould have been granted for this number ofpeople. It also has no sewer system ordrainage system.

Pumpkintown seems to lack even the mostrudimentary of governments. There is nochief of police, no mayor and no villageboard. If meetings are held, there is norecord of them. The town is in complete vio-lation of the Sunshine Laws and the FirstAmendment Laws, which require freedom ofinformation and minutes to be taken atevery public meeting.

One of the more serious lapses atPumpkintown is in their complete disregardof federal child labor laws. Children as youngas three years old are out there in the fields,picking the pumpkins and carrying them tothe designated areas. One can actually seethem doing this from the road.

As for the grown-up workers, federalauthorities have yet to see any withholdingtax being taken out of their pay. There are noquarterly filings or other accounting meas-ures at Pumpkintown.

There are no ramps for the handicapped atPumpkintown, no handrails or bathrooms oreven changing facilities for babies. Board ofHealth members are scratching their headsand wondering how such a town could havesprung up without the proper facilities andapprovals.

As seen from the road, Pumpkintown is inserious violation of Southampton’s appropri-ate attire ordinances. People dress howeverthey want. Women at Pumpkintown havebeen seen wearing skimpy skirts, and hairymen have been seen wearing undershirts.God knows when they may have last bathed.

At night, Pumpkintown seems to be verybadly lit. Instead of streetlights,Pumpkintown relies on car headlights—avery chancy business.

Zoning is non-existent at Pumpkintown,and it seems that no civil planning was done.There’s no policeman, fireman or other emer-gency official at Pumpkintown. There’s noPumpkintown Transportation Authority ormarine museum. There are no trustees,courts or dog ordinance control officers.

But there are apparently witches atPumpkintown. What is that all about?

There is also some question about whetherPumpkintown meets the code for its farmstand. The stand and little shack—whichdoes not have a certificate of occupancy, weare told—are allowed to exist only insofarthat more than 70% of the merchandise soldat the stand is actually grown on the proper-ty.

Ordinance inspectors walking the propertysay that many of the pumpkins, which areseen lying about in the field rather thanattached to any pumpkin plant stalk or any-thing, bear markings that suggest they aregrown in southern New Jersey and truckedin. If this is true, Pumpkintown should have

import-export licenses, but a search of therecords showed none.

Then there is the traffic. Pumpkintown isso popular that traffic on Route 27, whichpasses right by Pumpkintown, slows to acrawl there because no thought has beengiven to traffic lights or passing lanes orother traffic patterns.

Perhaps the biggest issue is the fact thatPumpkintown just seems to appear out ofnowhere in September and disappear inNovember. What kind of town is that? Isthere something that Pumpkintown is hid-ing? Do they leave with the same number ofpeople they arrive with?

A whole heap of violations will be servedupon the mayor of Pumpkintown if he can befound, but so far, he hasn’t been. Also, it isproving difficult to find anyone who will givePumpkintown a ticket.

That’s because everybody lovesPumpkintown. It shows up on a 40-acre pieceof farmland in Water Mill every Septemberand is here for six weeks.

By Dan RattinerOne might expect mistakes to be made in a

small town every once in a while. But just lastweek, so many of them popped up, it was hardto believe such bungling was possible.

In Sagaponack Village, there was the matterof the error in the newly passed zoning code.Apparently, in typing it up, the typist fouledup. Those businesses which were non-conform-ing and pre-existing not only didn’t have to bebrought up to code, but they were—here’s theerror—allowed to expand in the future up totwice their current size.

The error became known when the AnimalRescue Fund (ARF) bought a property on

Montauk Highway in that village, where theyintend to build a much larger store than isthere now in order to accommodate the needsof their thrift shop, which they will move fromSagaponack once the new facility is complete.

“This is much too big,” the village told ARFwhen first shown the plan of the big new storeto be built in Sagaponack. Then they found itwas not too big. It was legal.

“That is why we bought it,” a representativeof ARF said. “We need lots of space for thehome furnishings—beds and chests and sofasand things.”

“It’s a mistake.”“If we had known that, we wouldn’t have

bought it.”The property has a 1,700-square-foot house

on it. They will expand it to 3,100 square feet,though they could take it to 3,400 square feetif they read the code correctly, which they did.

The code is being corrected. But, woof, ARFwins this one.

In East Hampton Village, village trusteeshave discovered that a law preventing resi-dents from bulldozing the ancient DoubleDunes, a line of oceanfront sand dunes extend-ing six miles between Georgica andAmagansett, does not exist. They thought it

By Dan Rattiner“Look at that,” my wife said.We were sitting in the park, eating sand-

wiches at lunchtime. Pigeons were struttingand fluttering about, mostly looking for bits ofbread or crumbs in the grass. One pigeon, how-ever, was interested in something else. He wasclearly focusing his attention on one particularpigeon near him, who was slightly smaller. Andhe was letting her—I guessed it was female—know it.

He bobbed his head. He fluffed up his feath-ers on his neck and began making these oddguttural noises. He also responded to her in acertain way. She’d turn her head to look one

way. He’d strut over in that direction. She’dturn her head the other way. He’d strut thatway.

Shortly thereafter, he added another aspectto his behavior: menace.

It was quite subtle. When she’d walk a bit,looking down into the grass for stuff, he’d struttoward her. She’d look up. He’d stop immedi-ately, then hunker down as if he was nesting.But he continued the feather fluffing and gut-tural sounds. Then she’d look away, and he’dget up.

“It doesn’t seem to be a secret what hewants,” my wife said.

Now he was integrating these behaviors.

She’d look one way and he’d strut that way.She’d look down and he’d head toward her.She’d walk away slowly and he’d make a bigcircle around her to get back into her sightline.She’d stop, then go somewhere else. He’d circleher again.

This went on for quite some time and amidstmany other busy pigeons. It was clear to every-body, including us bystanders, the otherpigeons and the lady herself, that he was doingthis for her.

Soon the dynamic changed once again. Shebegan to exhibit very dignified yet very aloofbehavior. She completely ignored him. At the

same time, she held herself tall. There was aself-awareness in this. It had not been therebefore. She continued to do what she didbefore, but with grace and style. If he wantedto look, well, so be it. He could have a look. Buthe couldn’t touch.

And then something very unexpected hap-pened. It was like right out of a movie. He justgave up. He stopped paying attention to heraltogether. He found a crumb on the pavement.He went over and ate it. He looked for anothercrumb, found one and ate that. He walked com-pletely away. If she wasn’t interested, whatcould he do? He couldn’t go on with this forev-er.

I know that pigeons do not have the ability tochange their facial expressions, but I swear, inevery other way imaginable, this girl

expressed alarm. Where did he go? Has hechanged his mind? Was it something I did? Ordidn’t do?

She quickly walked over to him. He walkedaway. She came up alongside him and lookedat him. Nothing. He didn’t even know she wasthere. In fact, he walked away again. It wasover.

But it wasn’t, of course. She followed him.She tried the standing-up-tall business. Hedidn’t respond. She tried walking gracefully.She did her right-in-front-of-him thing again.No dice.

I’d say, at this point, we had been watchingthis little drama for about five or six minutes.They were apparently in no hurry. They didhave, after all, all day.

Finally, she couldn’t take it anymore. He was

just standing there, looking at something, andshe walked up from behind him until theirbodies were side by side. His a little bigger,hers a little smaller. She leaned into him.THAT, he understood. He let her do that for awhile.

Soon, however, this matter proceeded to thenext phase. I don’t recall who started it, but atfirst it appeared to be alarming, or potentiallyalarming. First, one of them would peck theother in the head and around the eyes. Thenthe other would return the favor. Each wouldclose their eyes when the pecking got nearthere. For the top of the head, they’d lean downa bit. A bond of trust seemed to form from this.Soon the pecking began to also include aroundthe neck. The pecks would go down to the neckthen back up to the eyes and the top of thehead. It sure looked good to me.

“I think they are cleaning each other,” mywife said. “You think?”

“No idea.”This went on for another three or four min-

utes. Given the quick, darting movements thatpigeons make, this was real serious foreplaygoing on, although it never did get below theneck. I admired it. Finally, it was on to the nextphase.

You could not make this stuff up. Theyturned to face each other, opened their hookedbeaks, turned their heads 45 degrees, steppedin close and locked their beaks together. Theywiggled around like this with their beakslocked, then they unlocked them and repeated.Soon it progressed further. One would stick hisor her closed beak down into the mouth of theother and give it a little shake.

This was so strange. But then with beaksinstead of lips, maybe it wasn’t. But what wasit? Were they feeding each other little mitesthey had found under their feathers? Werethey French kissing? Were they expanding onthe trust they had established earlier whilepecking one another? Were they doing allthree?

Finally, it happened. They disengaged. Hewalked around her, made a guttural noise andjumped her. He got right up on her back forjust a second, maybe two. And then he got off.

While he was up there, though, he did some-thing under her wing feathers. Something hap-pened, but it was too fast to see. He was like amagician. Then he hopped off.

“That was it?” I said.“Yup.”“Sort of a disappointment, no? After all

that?”What happened next? He fell asleep, tucking

his head under his wing? She fretted? Stompedoff? Not at all. They continued on with some ofthe earlier behavior. They leaned against oneanother. They turned and gently pecked eachother in the head again. Then, well, I don’texactly know what happened after that. Mysandwich wrapper fell to the ground, a bigflock of pigeons came in and landed all overeverything and I lost track of them.

In conclusion, I would like to offer this smallnews item I just read in the New York Post.

By Dan Rattiner Bill McGintee resigned from his job as East

Hampton Supervisor on October 5 not becausepolitical opponents hounded him out of office, orbecause a big hatchet job was done on him, butbecause he was scared that a District Attorneyinvestigating things might put him in jail for along, long time.

In my opinion, McGintee should haveresigned a long time ago, when the mess hemade of things was pointed out. He did not. Sothings got worse. And if not for the efforts ofDistrict Attorney Tom Spota, who could notbelieve a person could mess things up so badlywithout pocketing some of the money himself,McGintee would be our supervisor today.

The fact is, McGintee never used any of ourtax funds for himself or his family—there wereno fancy cars nor expensive vacations. We nowhave very thorough and expensive proof of that,

thanks to a team of assistant DAs who wentthrough all the files and checkbooks.

This has turned out to be an embarrassmentfor our politically ambitious DA. He needed tofind something to be able to put the handcuffson McGintee. Incredibly, though McGinteemight have been incompetent, he was honest.

I think that McGintee himself very likely didnot know if he had stolen anything. His level ofincompetence—and I do not mean anything per-sonal by this—was so great he had no ideawhere the money was coming from and going to.Maybe he DID take some of it. He would nothave done it intentionally. But what if he DID?Somebody with all his ducks in a row would beconfident that he’d be cleared of all wrongdoing.My guess is that McGintee simply did not knowhow this would turn out. He resigned. He willnot be indicted. That is the deal.

But didn’t McGintee do SOMETHING wrong?

He sure did. He spent this town into the dumps.Too bad for us.

In many ways, McGintee’s story is very simi-lar to that of a man named Dr. John Ferry, Jr.that occurred 15 years ago in Southampton.

At that time, Ferry, who had a doctorate inhospital administration, became the presidentof Southampton Hospital. A dashing, handsomeman filled with ideas, he was at first seen as asavior of the hospital, which, at that time, wasjust sort of bumping along and barely breakingeven.

Ferry began implementing his ideas. Hebrought in a concierge. He brought in valetparking. He ordered a stem-to-stern remodelingof the hospital’s interior by a noted designer.There were paintings on the walls, new tracklighting and a grand entrance. Ferry said hewas going to make a “boutique” hospital for the

Bernie Madoff ’s Montauk house, initially val-ued at $3 million when his scheme unraveledand an inventory was taken of his holdings lastNovember, was sold three weeks ago at auctionfor $9.4 million to developer Steven Roth. Roth,67, is the billionaire chairman of Vornado RealtyTrust, the company that developed and builtsome of New York City’s tallest skyscrapers. Thiswas pocket change for Roth, and the truth isMadoff ’s Montauk house is modest by any ocean-front standards. It’s 2,800 square feet, and hasonly four bedrooms and a tiny swimming pool.

Madoff ’s black 2001 E320 Mercedes, on the

other hand, valued at $20,000 by appraisers lastNovember, went for a mere $14,250 on Friday.The buyer is a New Jersey neurosurgeon namedGregory Przybylski.

Another car sold at that auction—they sell lotsof cars at every auction—was a 2007 CoachmanFreelander RV owned by a lower profile WallStreet swindler, hedge-fund whiz Sam Israel.Appraised at $27,000, it went for $27,500. Israel,after his scheme was discovered, faked his owndeath, then lived in his car for 22 days beforeturning himself in.

It is interesting to speculate why the Madoffitems sold with prices so wildly differently from

their appraisals, while other items did not.Obviously, a person’s high profile makes a hugedifference. But why the difference upward for theproperty and downward for the car? The car wasalmost a steal. In perfect condition, it’s a one-owner, nine-year-old popular luxury car, withonly 43,000 miles on it. As for the house, realestate prices tanked. And who knows what youget when you buy a house?

Well, there is only one vacation house in theHamptons that is (or was) Madoff ’s house. Youcan sit in it, you can invite friends over to it. Itsdesign came from the mind of an unbelievable

did. It doesn’t.The Double Dunes are a unique series of

dunes that extend back from the ocean asmuch as a quarter of a mile. They are unlikeany in the world. About three miles of themare in the Village of East Hampton, and aboutthree miles of them are adjacent in the Town ofEast Hampton. They are protected by rangersfrom the State Department of EnvironmentalConservation, and are supposedly supportedby village and town laws. The town has suchlaws. The village does not.

“Our laws only protect dunes a certain num-ber of feet from a house,” a village official saidruefully after poring through the ordinances.

The fact that the village does not have anordinance was brought into the spotlight ayear ago when a rich homeowner named RonBaron built a concrete wall parallel to thebeach for 800 feet through the Double Duneson his property. No one had ever done thatbefore. It was a flagrant violation. The townwent after him, and he ultimately had to jack-hammer the part of it in the town out. It wasquite clear at the time that what he did in thevillage was legal because there was no suchlaw. The wall is still up there, and the villageignored the problem.

In recent weeks, however, the village hasbeen scrambling to prevent other village resi-dents from bulldozing the dunes, which, sud-denly, they have begun to do. The villagerewrote the code to add the restriction andhopes to send it to the state for its stampedapproval by this past Monday.

In the meantime, though, two oceanfronthomeowners in the village have had bulldozersout, trying to flatten the dunes so as toimprove their ocean views.

One is Brian Brille, president of the Asia-Pacific operations of Bank of America, who hasstarted operations to flatten the dune, put in aretaining wall, relocate a wooden walkway andre-grade and landscape the project with nativeplantings.

He proposed this six months ago. The villagebuilding department, seeing no reason not to,approved it. Last week, the village said that hecould bulldoze until Monday and get whateverhe wanted done by that time. But that was it.

Brille is on the Board of Trustees of TheNature Conservancy, which supports the pro-tection of the Double Dunes.

Also underway is a Double Dune destructionproject by Christopher Brown, a resident ofFurther Lane in East Hampton Village. Thispast week, Brown’s bulldozers were workingfuriously to re-grade the dunes on his proper-ty.

Brown is also on the Board of Trustees ofThe Nature Conservancy.

Finally, there were the laws passed recentlyby the State of New York requiring all surf-casters to buy $10 state fishing licenses. Theirreasons are that they want to keep track ofhow many fishermen are out there (they aredesperate for money), and they want to bettersee what kind and how many fish are beingcaught (they are desperate for money). No onebothered to look into the laws on eastern Long

Island where in three towns, Southampton,Southold and East Hampton, there are ancienttrustee laws that prevent the state or anybodyelse from charging local residents to fish in theocean, ponds or bays. These laws have beenupheld in the courts over and over again.

The state law went into effect on October 1.All around the state, people are buying licens-es online and in sporting goods stores. OnOctober 2, the three East End towns filed alawsuit, and so far as anybody knows, eventhough the law was passed, not one statepolice officer has asked a surfcaster to showhim a license in those towns.

The matter will probably be in court foryears since it is highly unlikely the state willgo into its ordinance books with an eraser. Weknow the outcome.

By T.J. ClementeSouthampton Supervisor Linda Kabot and

her opponent for the position, CouncilwomanAnna Throne-Holst, faced off on Oct. 22 at adebate sponsored by the League of WomanVoters of the Hampton at the Rogers MemorialLibrary. Moderated by the League’s BarbaraJordan and drawing more than 225 attendees,the debate showcased two women who’ve beenat the center of Southampton town govern-ment the last two years.

Although Kabot and Throne-Holst were bothdressed in white blouses and dark businesssuits, it was clear from the opening statementsthat the similarities ended there. Kabot, theRepublican incumbent, insisted that her chal-lenger basically ran against her for the lastyear from the inner workings of the boardmeetings. She chided Throne-Holst for beingaligned with the Southampton Police Unionand against a town health care reform planthat would raise costs for town officials. (Kabotdoes not take part in the town’s program;Throne-Holst’s entire family does.) Kabotstressed her own strong leadership in the myr-iad budget nightmares thrown at her by anadministration she defeated two years ago.She asked to be re-elected to “continue thework” of righting the wrongs of a culture thatcontrolled her party and town for too long,stressing she had the experience to right thetown through these troubled times.

Throne-Holst, the Democratic party chal-lenger, basically said in her opening statementthat change was imperative in this election in

order to instate competent leadership “thathas experience in economic matters.” Sheexplained that from day one of her time on theSouthampton Town Board, she was “shocked atthe lack of accountability and financial plan-ning” at Town Hall. To combat this, she held upher “action” plan—a sort of business plan forthe town that will turn around its byzantinefinancial practices and put new systems inplace to end the government’s apparent incom-petencies of the last few years.

With questions coming from the audienceand a panel of well-known journalists, the can-didates answered very respectfully. In fact, themost interesting dynamic of the debate mighthave been the civility between these tworivals. There were no rude interruptions,insult-hurling or desperate charges. The candi-dates showed they were used to presentingtheir opinions at town board meetings. They

spoke with emotion and passion. Both arepoised political leaders.

However, their differences are pronounced.Throne-Holst doesn’t believe that Kabot hasthe career experience to deal with the compli-cated accountability issues the town mustidentify, clean up and change. Kabot, of course,believes she is the one with the experience todeal with these difficult times, which include achallenging situation with the town’s policeunion over a new contract. She just about pro-claimed Throne-Holst’s support of the policeunion as dangerous. In the end, the debatewasn’t about details, but the apparent differ-ence in philosophy and styles of governingoffered by the candidates. Throne-Holst will bean agent for total change though “restructur-ing and reorganizing the town,” along with itsbudget. Kabot offered the experienced handthat’s already righting those woes.

After a 10-minute intermission, the four can-didates for Southampton Town Board entered:Conservative and Republican Party candidateJim Malone, Democratic Party CandidateBridget Fleming, one-year incumbentDemocrat Councilwoman Sally Pope, andincumbent Councilman Chris Nuzzi. Theirmessages can be summed up by their ownwords. Malone stressed he was the man whowould and could “do more with less.” Flemingproclaimed, “Our government is not working,”and represented the “momentum for realchange.” Pope stressed that, “Service has been

It’s a sunny fall afternoonon Shelter Island, and theMosquito Hawk Gallery’sexterior is sparkling withlife, just like its surroundingsetting. Contributing to theunique ambience is thebuilding that houses thegallery: a church. This is anunusual place because thespace and the exhibit playagainst one another instrange ways.

The church’s altar andstained glass windows areeye-catching and familiar,reinforcing what a spiritual place should be.Yet the photographs in “Vivir la Muerte” byBastienne Schmidt are not at all familiar. Infact, they are foreign to our experience asAmericans. They document places like Brazil,Peru and Mexico during the 1990s. The sub-ject matter is strange as well, showing howLatin American cultures deal with rituals ofdeath. Thus, the juxtaposition of the usualand unusual. Or, put another way, the uplift-ing church atmosphere combined with thephotographs’ despair.

“Despair” might not be the proper word.Funeral rituals can be life-affirming, yet onephotograph of an open grave is not. A boy witha gun walking alongside a person dressed as askeleton is equally disconcerting. These con-

tradictions are recognizedby Schmidt herself when shedescribes her pictures as“cruel and explicit, lyricaland poetic.”

Such oppositions givestrength to Schmidt’s exhib-it, as does the church set-ting. Even so, another quali-ty adds to the intensity:close-up perspectives of thesubject matter. We, the view-ers, never feel as thoughwe’re observers; we are par-ticipants in the rituals evenif it makes us uncomfort-

able. We’re trapped with the people in theevents taking place.

Schmidt’s talent for capturing diverse cul-tures is also proven in her 2004 book, ShadowHome. In this collection, participation withthe subjects is personal as the photographertravels to her homeland of Germany. Whilepeople, places and architecture are document-ed, one picture, of a small bunch of flowersstuck in a fence, conveys contradiction.

Environment has always played a big partin Schmidt’s works, and that’s no more appar-ent than in her latest photographs (not part ofthe current show) featuring life as a LongIsland housewife. The self-portraits are hermost personal, and include abstract close-upsof faces and long shots of a woman seemingly

lost in a field.Again, the contradiction looms large, as do

the settings. Schmidt’s photographs are notonly outstanding visual diaries but arrestingsociological observations as well. Her expert-ise has been well acknowledged: Her work isin the collections of such prestigious institu-tions as The International Center ofPhotography, MOMA and The Victoria andAlbert Museum.

By Aline ReynoldsThe Parrish Theater in

Southampton is keeping its reelsrolling despite of a 30% budgetcut this year, presentingacclaimed films that depicteveryday human struggles.

The Parrish’s 2009 Fall FilmSeries, “When Things GoWrong,” focuses on ways inwhich people handle dilemmas.The films were carefully chosenby guest curator John Turnbull,an experienced film consultantwho has worked with the Parrish since 2000.

And now, on the heels of the fall film series(which concludes this weekend), the fourth annu-al East End Black Film Festival will present theshort documentary Beyond the Bricks onThursday, November 5 at the Parrish Theater.

Organized by the African-American Museum of the EastEnd, the festival seeks to promotelesser-known African Americanfilm producers and to illuminatethe plight of African Americans.This year’s films focus on thestruggles, strategies, insecuritiesand strength of black women.

The African-American Museumfaced a 33% cut in town fundingfor the festival this year yet man-aged to cover the films’ rentalfees. It has also expanded its pro-

gram from one to two evenings, with the hope ofturning it into a seven-day series in a few years.

“Once we become a week-long event, ourhotels, restaurants and local businesses couldbenefit when there is little to do in the Hamptonsduring the off-season,” said Bonnie Cannon,

museum co-founder and co-organizer of the festi-val. “It could also create jobs for our local people.”

Beyond the Bricks exposes the trend of African-American students underperforming inAmerica’s public schools. It provides hope forpossible solutions to this dilemma that hasplagued black students for years. Director DerekKoen and producer Ouida Washington will host apost-screening panel discussion.

“Many of our boys of color get lost in the edu-cational system,” said Cannon, who herself has a14-year-old African-American son. “It usuallystarts in middle school and goes downhill fromthere. We have to start looking at this issue moreclosely and come up with solutions to turn thisepidemic around.”

Bouncer/Caddy Murder Trial Enters Second WeekBy T.J. Clemente

On Monday, Oct. 26, in a courtroomin Riverhead the murder trial ofAnthony Oddone continued. Oddone,the 25 year old Southampton golfcaddy, is accused of the strangulationdeath of corrections officer AndrewReister of Hampton Bays. On thenight of August 7, 2008, Reister, afather of two children, was employed asa bouncer at the Southampton Publick House,a popular bar/restaurant.

Assistant D.A. Denise Merrifield is now inthe process of rolling out 30 eyewitnesses tobolster the claim of the state’s case thatOddone committed two counts of murder inthe second degree, which comes along with a25-years-to-life prison sentence. Reister diedtwo days after the strangulation in the bar.Testimony to date has stated that Oddone,perhaps 100 pounds lighter than Reister, wasordered by the bouncer to get off a table,where he was dancing with two others. It wassaid that Reister then knocked Oddone off the

table and in the tussle thatensued, Oddone administereda chokehold that first subduedReister, then in effect starvedhis brain of oxygen, causinghis subsequent death two dayslater.

Sarita Kedina, Oddone’slawyer, said in the opening

statement last Wednesday thatthe tragic death was neither premeditatednor murder, but in fact the actions of someonewho was at one moment having a very goodtime, and in the next was suddenly forced todefend himself in a scuffle. Whereas in heropening statement Assistant D.A. Merrifieldsaid she will prove that once Oddone put thechoke hold on Reister his intentions were tokill him.

On Monday, before a packed courtroom,with the trial now into its second week,Merrifield presented witness number three,Andrew Goucher, who began corroboratingthe testimony of the two earlier witnesses. As

family members of both the accusedand the victim (including Reister’swife) watched, Goucher told the samestoried details of how, in a matter ofminutes, the situation went fromOddone dancing on a table at the barto choking Reister to near-death.Then, Oddone ran out of the estab-lishment and fled in a cab as para-

medics and police arrived to try andsave Reister’s life.

During this testimony, Reister’s widowStacey began to cry.

The trial is expected to continue well intoNovember. The issue is not whether Oddonechoked Reister to death, but whether heintended to kill him. Was Oddone just defend-ing himself against a larger man who washired to keep order in a bar?

During the trial, Oddone is being held atRiker’s Island in New York City because hislawyer fears for his safety in the SuffolkCounty jail system, where Reister workedand was respected and beloved.

The Makeover that Still Makes a DifferenceBy T.J. Clemente

In today’s world of using green appliances andincreasing the value of your home, many arerevisiting the idea of upgrading the kitchen.

Scott Smith of Smith River Kitchens in EastHampton is considered a legend by manybecause of his skills, knowledge and track recordof custom kitchen design and cabinetry installa-

tion. Smith explained that based on his experi-ence, an old kitchen can devalue sale price by$20-$30,000, whereas putting in a deluxe, smart-ly designed modern kitchen increases the valuefrom $50,000 to $100,000.

Well-designed and high-quality cabinetry withfull custom installation starts at about $12,000.Completely redoing a kitchen starts at about$20,000. Yet for some homeowners, even afterconsidering the return on investment, a kitchenrenovation is a hard sell.

Years ago, a friend said of her husband Phil,

“He sends Harvard $300,000 every year butwouldn’t let me spend $20,000 on the kitchen. Idid it anyway and in the end I was holding himback—he really got into it.”

Of course, you could be a DIY-er, but a realestate agent told me that people who do kitchensthemselves usually don’t save money and end updevaluing their homes. “These are million-dollarhomes, not trailers,” he said. “Yet some home-owners try to take short cuts on the kitchen,which is perhaps the most important room in ahome. What are they thinking?”

Everything has a season, including kitchenupgrades. Design is typically done early in theyear and most of the work is usually completedbefore June. August is another popular monthfor planning and design for homeowners whowant the project completed for the holidays.Smith explained that installing cabinetry takestwo to three weeks. Designing, building and com-pleting a total redo will take from two to threemonths.

To do the job, Smith River’s licensed architectsprovide 3-D renderings of a project that can becombined with historical period detailing. Thecompany offers a full range of countertop, tileand finish materials, which they install.

While in these times a redo may not be a pri-ority, a new kitchen is valuable; it improves ener-gy usage and ups the list price of a home for sale.Smith thinks the cost of renovation is a smallprice to pay, considering what it could save else-where. He chuckled and said a well-designedkitchen “makes a living room obsolete.”

After a two-year campaign spearheaded byPeconic Baykeeper and supported by the Townsof Hempstead, Oyster Bay, Babylon, Islip,Brookhaven, Southampton and the Fire IslandNational Seashore, the entire South ShoreEstuary Reserve has been designated a federalNo-Discharge Zone. This designation requiresvessels to discharge all sewage, treated or not,at pump-out facilities, thereby preservingwater quality and protecting surroundingmarine life. To obtain approval, PeconicBaykeeper demonstrated the need for greaterprotection of the natural resources within theestuary. The South Shore Estuary Reserveincludes more than 110,000 acres of open baysand tributaries from the East Rockaway Inletto Shinnecock Bay. Said Baykeeper KevinMcAllister, “As Long Islanders, we’re deeplyconnected to our waters, and it is our responsi-bility to ensure their long-term vitality. ”

Roger: Yeah? Jeannie’s already bitching aboutme waking her at 4 a.m. when I go deer hunting.

Joe: Do you make a lot of noise?Roger: Never. I tiptoe around, and get my gear,

and guns. It’s Terry. He wakes her up when hepulls up and the top lights on his truck cab shineinto our bedroom. Then he comes in for coffee.He’s not noisy, but sometimes we have to wakeher up to find the filters, y’know...

Joe: Well, she can go right back to sleep.Roger: She says the smell of the coffee wakes

her up. I thought it was the bacon. Then she yipsabout not leaving egg dishes all over and startsrinsing dishes and complaining that it’s now 5a.m. and there’s no sense going back to sleepsince she has to get up at seven with the kids.Man, I can’t want to get out of that house.

Joe: We all put up with it, man. You think

they’d be appreciative that we’re bringing homefree venison. Jennie always rags on about howthe venison is actually about $116/lb. She doesthis weird calculation thing, adds up the cost ofmy gear, guns, bullets, boots, knives, gas, every-thing.

Roger: You don’t tell her the truth, do you? Youalways trim off 25% of the price of anything youtell your wife you bought.

Joe: I know. Otherwise the venison comes outto $182/lb. I’d never hear the end of that!

Roger: You know, we could get arrested togeth-er after deer season and share the cell.

Joe: That’s not so crazy. We could do somethingto get jailed for two months, get three hots and acot, and no complaining.

Roger: No lectures on not letting the baby playwith the empty rifle.

Joe: No complaints about washing clothes withdeer blood on them.

Roger: No one telling you not to throw yourbowie knife at the shed door because someonemight open it at that exact moment.

Joe: Women worry about the most trivial stuff.Roger: I know. I always lock the shed door

before I throw my knives.Joe: What about the time you nearly clipped

Tom when he opened the door?Roger: That was two years ago. Besides, Tom is

a big guy. The knife couldn’t have gone in farenough to do much harm.

Joe: So what can we get arrested for?Roger: We’re a coupla bright guys—let’s bring

a six-pack and figure it out in the deer blind.

rich, similar to such hospitals that exist today inPalm Springs and Aspen. Great doctors withworldwide reputations would settle inSouthampton. They would work in the “satel-lite” hospitals he planned for East Hampton,Westhampton Beach and Hampton Bays. Hebought the land for these satellites. He brokeground and began construction. He was the fea-tured guest at great fundraisers.

After five years of this, the hospital’s board ofdirectors, a bunch of older men who would burstinto applause whenever Ferry strode into aroom, were told something was amiss. But whatcould it be? They did have, after all, a $60 mil-lion endowment in the bank. All of these won-derful and daring changes would be accom-plished on their watch.

Well, good heavens, when they checked theaccount at the bank, the entire $60 millionendowment was gone. Ferry had spent it all,paying the contractors and designers and archi-tects who were fulfilling his grand plans.Furthermore, the losses were accelerating. Itturned out that among other things, the hospi-tal’s ancient computers were malfunctioning.There was medical work being done at the hos-pital that was not being billed out. There was noclear idea what was paid and what was not.There was not even a collection department.What a mess.

They called in Ferry. He was presented withwhat was going on. And he looked at everybodyin horror. He had no idea, he said. He was notpaying any attention to those sorts of details.He was an idea man. He would resign.

Then, as soon as possible, he did. And he lefttown. He did not flee the country. He was avail-able to be arrested if it came to that. But whenthe accountants came in, they found that Ferryhad never taken anything for himself. He’d real-ly wanted what was best for the hospital. Hewas simply guilty of financial incompetence.And that was that.

I think it is fair to say that if Ferry had notresigned when he did, a DA would have beenbrought in to investigate for possible criminalactivity. What DA would not assume the gooddoctor was lining his own pockets? What was hehiding?

Well, Ferry agreed to scrap the remainder ofhis contract. Also his golden parachute, thoughhe did accept enough to cover the cost of relo-cating his family elsewhere. He was very apolo-getic. He is, I have to say, remembered fondly,though with a sense of outrage by all of us. It’scomplicated.

The bankers came in after he left. If they hadnot, the hospital would have closed its doors. Sothey came in, and the trustees had to acceptdraconian terms to borrow the money needed tocontinue on. The interest rates were throughthe roof—this was a big risk the bankers weretaking, the bankers said—and stayed the samefor the full 15 years. These were dark times forthe hospital as they made do with very littlewhile the bankers who saved them got rich onthe high interest.

One would think that the bankers, whomight’ve needed to use the hospital themselvesfrom time to time, would have changed the

terms of the awful loan they made after a fewyears. But they turned their backs and let thehospital drift. It has only been in the last fewyears, as the light at the end of the 15-year tun-nel has grown brighter and brighter, that thenew hospital president, Bob Chaloner, hasturned the hospital into a truly successful andwonderful place again. Recently, the hospitalbegan operating in the black for the first time inyears.

The thing is that a little over two years ago, inJune of 2007, when McGintee learned the horri-ble truth about the lack of funds in the towntreasury, he did not resign so others could fixthe problem. He was running for reelection ofhis third term in November. By his own admis-sion, he simply kept silent about what he hadlearned so he could be reelected. And he was.Only after that did he make public what heknew, but then he STILL did not resign.

What was he hiding? It seemed like a no-brainer for a crusading DA to come in and makethe arrest and send McGintee off to jail forstealing the funds.

What DA Spota found was that EastHampton’s budget officer, Ted Hults, whoMcGintee appointed, was also incompetent.Because he, too, was honest, the best the DAcould do was find criminal activity when Hultstold the state about the town’s finances in hopesof Albany bailing out the town and bonding ourchildren to big state loans for the next 15 years.That’s all they could come up with. Spotahauled off Hults in handcuffs. Spota probablyrubbed his hands together with glee andthought McGintee would be next. After all,McGintee had signed off on what Hults haddone. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

The most ridiculous part of all of this, if youthink about it, is that in his letter of resigna-tion, McGintee thanks the DA for agreeing toallow him to help find out who really causedthis mess. It reminds me of that old joke: Thewife opens the bedroom door and there is herhusband in bed with another woman. The hus-band sits up, shocked, and says, “Who put thiswoman in this bed? We have to find that per-son.”

Exactly who does McGintee think might havecaused this?

Last week, independent of the DA, the NewYork State Comptroller’s Office finally issuedtheir report on East Hampton finances. They

DAN'S PAPERS, October 30, 2009 Page 25 www.danshamptons.com

By T.J. ClementeThe East End real estate numbers for the

third quarter are in. They show that the lightat the end of the tunnel is not an approachingtrain, but recovery through activity. No longerare the sales figures falling like a one-poundsinker on the end of a fishing line; they areactually holding steady, if not building themarket.

Let’s look at the overall figures presented byTown & Country, Prudential Douglas Ellimanand Corcoran. The number of homes sold in allthe Hamptons for the third quarter of 2009was 251, versus 257 in 2008—a modest drop ofonly 2.33%. Although the total sales volumewas down from about $452 million (3Q 2008) to$441 million (3Q 2009) the drop is only 2.51%,and the good news is the median home saleprice actually increased 4.65%, from$860,000(3Q 2008) to $900,000 (3Q 2009).

Overall activity price ranges show why signsof recovery are evident. In home sales under$500K, the volume of sales dropped 21.74% to54 homes in 3Q 2009 from 69 homes in 3Q2008. The decrease in low-end activity was off-set by 18 sales over $5 million in the 3Q of2009 versus none in the 3Q of 2008. There wasalso an eyebrow-raising 40% increase in thesale of homes priced between $3.5 million and$5 million (14 homes 3Q 2009 versus 10 homes3Q 2008).

The upward trend continues in the $2 to$3.49 million home sales range, with a com-parative quarter increase of a whopping

45.45%, with 32 homes sold in 3Q 2009 versus22 in 3Q 2008. And in the activity zone of$500K to $1.99 million, 133 homes were sold in3Q of 2009 versus 138 homes in 3Q 2008. Whatjumps out is the statistic that sales of homesbetween $1 million and $1.99 million weredown 22.22% (42 homes 3Q 2009 versus 54homes 3Q 2008), whereas sales volumeincreased in the $500k to $999K level by8.33%—with 91 in the 3Q of 2009, up from 84in the 3Q of 2008.

So what does this all mean? Judi Desideriofounder of Town and Country states, “In fact,we were the first to identify the SecondQuarter 2009 as ‘the bottom’—and we werecorrect.”

Dottie Herman, CEO of Prudential DouglasElliman stated it differently in an EllimanThird Quarter report, saying, “Prices stabilizedduring the summer as sales surged with buy-ers taking advantage of improved affordabili-ty.”

At Corcoran the sentiments were the same,as reflected by this statement in their report:“This increase in activity is attributable to astrengthening in the higher end market asmedian and average home prices haveincreased while the number of homes sold hasdecreased slightly. Inventory continued togrow in the third quarter indicating a broaderrange of opportunities for buyers.”

Again, Desiderio’s report stressed the bottomof the bottom: “In all, the homes sales activitiesfor the 3rd Q ’09 demonstrated a recovery in

levels as five of the 11 markets monitored byTown & Country showed increases in the num-ber of Home Sales, while one remained equaland five declined—a much happier report thanlast quarter when all 11 markets had severedeclines from the previous year.”

On the North Fork, the numbers and senti-ments were not as rosy. Corcoran’s report stat-ed: “We continue to experience declines inaverage and median home prices, as the NorthFork market adjusts to the current economiccycle.”

Prudential Douglas Elliman’s North Forkassessment states: “In a release of pent-updemand, there were 459 sales in the thirdquarter, 49.5% more than the second quarterand 29.3% more than the same period lastyear. Despite the surge in sales this summer,third quarter listing inventory expanded 5.8%to 2,419 properties compared to the prior quar-ter as sellers attempted to take advantage ofthe newly active housing market.”

What all the East End figures seem to say isthat homes under $500K are not selling, asperhaps those buyers haven’t recovered fromthe economic downturn and are unable to getfinancing. The $500K to $1.99 million homesare being bought and sold with prices stabiliz-ing. Homes above $2 million are beginning tomove as wealthier buyers gain confidence thatthe downward spiral has stopped and thathealthy values in the form of beautiful EastEnd homes are available.

went through each checkbook in great detail.They could document exactly what happenedwith the finances of East Hampton Town.

I recall that when the trouble began,McGintee, shocked to find they were $6 mil-lion in debt, claimed he had inherited thedebt from his predecessor, who had left officein 2004 without telling McGintee about thesecret deficit.

Turns out that not only did the predecessorleave McGintee a surplus, but the surplus,about $8 million, was still there at the end ofMcGintee’s first term in 2006. McGinteenever even knew he was rolling in doughwhen he was rolling dough.

It was in the beginning of 2007 that things

began to go very south. According to a statecomptroller, by the end of that year, the sur-plus was gone and replaced by an $11 milliondeficit. In June of 2007, McGintee discoveredhe’d scraped the bottom of the financial bar-rel. Money was gone. He could not make pay-roll. He had no idea why. At that time, heshould have done what Ferry did. He shouldhave resigned. He didn’t.

McGintee not walking away sadly cost thistown another $10 million in deficits. 2008 wasbusiness as usual. McGintee made no layoffs,cutbacks, tax increases or project abandon-ments. He simply wrote checks out of anaccount earmarked for public land purchaseto get by. It was illegal. But he was the man in

charge and it was an emergency. So he did it.Personally, I am a taxpayer in two different

hamlets in East Hampton Town. From myperspective, McGintee is a man who hasscrewed us up badly. He meant well, appar-ently. I think he’s a nice guy. He had ideas. Heimplemented many of them. But I reallyresent this second $10 million in deficit thattaxpayers and our children will have to bear.There will be tax increases, layoffs, reducedservices, bonds to pay. And for what? For aman who insisted that what he broke hewould fix. That isn’t a crime, either. But it’spretty awful. He never did fix it. As a matterof fact, as this is written, things are still head-ed south.

McGintee (continued from page 24)

crook. It’s a conversation piece.On the other hand, a car is a car. And as some

woman told a reporter from the New York Post, “Iwouldn’t want to put my butt where he put hisbutt.” And you can hardly invite anybody over fordinner in your car. (Well, unless you’re Mr.Israel.)

Another thought is that maybe some of that$65 billion is buried somewhere at the house. Itcould hardly still be in the car. The Feds wentover it with a fine-tooth comb. But with a house,sometimes things get buried for centuriesdespite everybody’s best efforts. You never know.

Incidentally, I’ve been thinking further aboutMadoff and what he did. I’d like to share some ofthese thoughts.

One is that Madoff seems to consider himself avictim of his own Ponzi scheme. He hasn’t saidmuch. But what he did say, in open court, abouthis role in all this, has led me to that conclusion.He said he couldn’t help himself. All sorts of peo-ple patted him on the back when they gave hima million dollars and at the end of a year he gavethem $150,000 back as profit rather than theusual $50,000 other money managers, even the

best of them, were coming up with. He becamedrunk on his clients’ compliments. Then morepeople complimented him. So he did it again andagain, each time using the next person’s cash notto buy stock but to give these wonderful returnsto those who came before. How did he do it? He’dsmile and tell people it was as secret as the for-mula for Coca Cola.

He’d drive around in his Mercedes. He’d driveout to the Hamptons. He was a millionaire manytimes over from doing this. But he lived relative-ly modestly, in New York anyway. A nine-year-oldMercedes. A small country house—oceanfront,yes, but modest nevertheless.

So where did the $65 billion go? I originally fig-ured it had to be somewhere. He took it in. A“master” was appointed by the court to try totrack it down. Was it in Switzerland? Under theMontauk vacation house?

$65 billion is the gross domestic product ofBulgaria. It would be hard to misplace.

Well, I, and many others, have overlooked theobvious. Madoff did this for 10 years. Let’s sayhe had 10,000 accounts in all. Not an unlikelynumber. What he did was take in $65 billion

during 10 years from 10,000 families, and giveALL of it to the first 5,000 families. The next5,000 lost everything. And that is that. Less hiscommissions, it was a mass re-shmerguling ofthe funds. Today, the first 5,000 folks are keep-ing their mouths shut. The last 5,000 folks are,well, we know about them. They’re ruined.

And poor Bernie, the victim of his own desireto be liked, has willingly gone off and paid theprice. He could not control himself. One canalmost see him, tossing and turning in the mid-dle of the night—even his wife apparently did-n’t know what he was doing— and thinkingabout how he wasn’t going to be able to contin-ue this, and how those 5,000 who were about tolose everything were going to feel about him.They thought he was their friend. He thoughthe was their friend. But then, the economyturned. Who knew this was going to happen?Who knew?

He gets up and paces.“Bernie, are you all right?”“Yes. Everything’s fine.”“Come back to bed, Bernie.” Poor Bernie.At long last, now, finally, Bernie is free.

By Dan RattinerWeek of October 31–November 6, 2009 Riders this week: 6,414 Rider miles this week: 73,801EMERGENCY WARNING CHANGED YET

AGAINA change in the subway system evacuation sig-

nal went into effect last Friday. Instead of onehoot of the horn for “evacuate” and two for “allclear,” it was reversed so that two hoots meant“evacuate” and one meant “all clear.”Unfortunately, a bat roosting on the tracksbetween Southampton and Water Mill elicitedone hoot from Motorman Clyde Damswell on theday this went into effect. Everyone in the systemevacuated—except the bat. With two hoots, thepassengers all returned and the bat evacuated.As a result of this mix-up, this Friday, the ruleswill be changed back to the way they were before.Three hoots means “evacuate,” four hoots means“all clear.” All this is by order of the HomelandSecurity Department.


Last week, Kim Jong-il of North Korea touredthe subway. This Saturday, we welcomed moreAsians. A delegation of Japanese diplomats, ledby Japanese assistant ambassador to the U.N.

Myota Hasagowa, were hosted by HamptonSubway PR Director Harold Beckerman on aspecial junket for a day of beach, sun and fun.After leaving Manhattan at 7 a.m. by bus, thedelegation was met by Beckerman at theentrance to our most western subway stop inWesthampton Beach at 9 a.m., where they wereimmediately taken down to the platform for abreakfast buffet that was set up behind a curtainat the most eastern end so regular straphangerswouldn’t get at it. There, Dr. Bart Waldbaum, anassistant professor of American History atSuffolk Community College, gave them a 30-minute slideshow history lesson about the sub-way. Waldbaum then brought them to the life-size bronze statue of President Bush andPresident Putin, who met on that platform inOctober 2007 to discuss international relations,holding hands. The group then climbed aboard asubway car and toured each of our 14 other sub-way platforms, with Waldbaum explaining theplatforms’ architectural differences and individ-uality. At each, the visitors took pictures of thestation names embedded in multi-colored walltiles, the newsstand and the token booths,although flash photography was not permittedbecause it might’ve upset the regular straphang-ers. At 6 p.m., having visited all the platforms,

the tired tourists, still underground, returned toWesthampton Beach and boarded the waitingbuses for the trip back to New York City. A goodtime was had by all.

TROUBLE ON THE DIG TO FOXWOODSThe subway system continues to experience

problems in our attempt to dig a tunnel from SagHarbor to Foxwoods. The first attempt resultedin the discovery of oil under Long Island Sound,a find that proved disastrous to the subwaycrews digging the tunnel when oil flooded theirwork.

The second attempt was to be a great semi-cir-cle around the oil. Out of Sag Harbor, the tunnelturned due west at Long Island Sound and ranjust offshore underwater to Port Jefferson, whereit turned north and headed for Bridgeport,Connecticut. The intention was to turn east onceit neared that city and run parallel to theConnecticut shore and around the oil as it head-ed to Foxwoods.

By last week, the tunnel was supposed to reachBridgeport and begin the second 90-degree turn.But when that right turn was dug with the heavyequipment, the new tunnel broke into the tunnelthat was already dug. Apparently, the turn wasmuch greater than just 90 degrees. It had madea complete loop. Since the tracks now link upwith the tracks coming the other way, all con-struction has halted until the workmen find outwhat they are supposed to do besides go back toPort Jefferson.

COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGEA few days ago, I began receiving reports that

one of the subway cars displayed above its win-dows advertisements for hemorrhoids, debt con-

It’s kind of amazing how quickly you canchange the mood of most people in theHamptons. All you need to do is talk about thestock market.

Nearly everybody lost money in the stock mar-ket during 2009, but the worst of it happenedaround this time last year. I was so depressed,especially around Christmas. Nothing was good.Anybody I ran into was depressed, no matterhow much good news they had in their lives.Even if they’d just won a new car, gotten mar-ried, had a kid, bought a house—it didn’t matter,they were miserable. We’d talk about the lossesand how, if we had any brains, we’d be buyingback into the market because if we didn’t, whenthe recovery came, we’d be kicking ourselves.

Well, since that low time (I think it startedaround March or early April), the stock markethas been climbing, steadily, triumphantly and insome cases without any reason. It seems that allinvestors are trying to out think everything—including companies with tremendous debt/loss-es that should’ve been out of business. But thegovernment printed more money, and the stockwent up in price. And little by little, just abouteverybody I know bought back in. Nothing major,but enough to pay attention.

Well here we are, six months into this climb,and everyone’s attitude is changing. I’m talkingeveryone, even people who have no idea what thehell the Dow Jones Industrial average is. I’vebeen to parties where a circle forms and peopletalk about their latest victory in the stock mar-ket—many times these are the same people who

lost most of their 401ks in the crash. “I just made30% on Goldman, baby! Man, am I happy.” Andwe all celebrate our genius.

It’s this quality of human nature that makesme believe that we are headed in the right direc-tion toward a sustainable recovery. We all easilyforget our anger and frustration and eventually,we can’t resist getting back into the game. Justlook around. Everybody wants to give it a secondchance. Slowly but surely, we forgive, forget andcall our broker.

It’s like any relationship. For months, evenyears, spouses and couples can hate each other,but then one little thing happens, like a gift offlowers, and it’s hunky-dory again. The DowJones just gave investors a bouquet of 10,000flowers. She delivered it at work, crying, apolo-gizing. “Regulate me,” she said. “Just give meanother chance. I swear I can make this work.”

“I don’t know, Dow. I don’t know if I can do thisagain.”

“Please. I’ll do anything. I’ll take money fromObama. I’ll cap CEO pay. I won’t even thinkabout bundling mortgages. I swear to God. Iwon’t even think about it.”

“I’ll give you this one last chance Dow. But sohelp me, if you do this again, IT’S OVER!”

We’ve said this to Dow before, and we’ll say itagain, but for now, we’re working it out.

The illusion of being geniuses for makingmoney in a six-month rally fascinates me. Even Istumbled into it. The stock market is just so sexywhen it’s going up. A graph of the Dow for thelast six months looks like the perfect leg leading

up to a black dress. We romance ourselves withclever words like p/e ratio, points, strikes, execu-tions...it’s all so delicious.

But I’m watching this cheating Dow with avery close eye. I’m checking its text messages, itse-mail. I don’t care how seductive she can be,because I know how cruel she can be too. Do thenay-sayers have it right? Is this all just a bunchof company fat that’s been cut, making the prof-its look better while the revenues continue todecline? Or is this a genuine restructure withsustainable growth? Is this the time to bite?

Time will tell, and this flirty soap opera withDow will continue, just like it always does.

Puzzled, Ilooked into it and found that our new publicrelations manager Beckerman, without anyorders from above, recreated a “nostalgia” car, inwhich straphangers can enjoy what the subwayswere like back in the 1970s. This car is filthy, lit-tered with candy wrappers, covered with graffitiand has these very offensive ads over the win-dows.

Beckerman has been fired after just four daysinto his new job. We’ve had many public rela-tions and marketing men on the subway in thelast few years. This is the fewest number of daysthat any PR man has worked for the subwaysystem, since Carl Murgetroid’s disastrous workin April 2007.

By Susan M. GalardiThey sit at the kitchen table, strewn with

seed and bulb catalogues, maybe some gridpaper, drawing, redrawing. Ordering, order-ing. They try to keep themselves occupiedand happy, but only one thing can exactthem from their doldrums.

That “thing” is Spring.And “they” are gardeners.Fall and winter are tough seasons for gar-

deners – there’s only so much tool sharpen-ing and pot mending a person can do. Butsome avid gardeners have come up withanother solution that elicits a big green-thumbs-up from their peers: Greenhouses.They allow gardeners to never miss a beatwhen it comes to doing that thing they love.

Rob Moraru, a dermatologist with a prac-tice in Manhattan, is in the upper echelon ofgardeners – if that term dare be used at all.Moraru grows orchids, thousands of them, in his300-square-foot greenhouse that’s attached to hishome in East Hampton. The life-long passionbegan when he was given his first orchid as fresh-man at Cornell. A year later the plant bloomed,

and he was hooked.So when Moraru and his partner were looking

for a house in the Hamptons, a non-negotiablewas a property big enough to add a greenhouse.“My hobby and passion is orchids,” said Moraru,who is also on the board of the Manhattan OrchidSociety. “I wanted to expand my growing space,and I needed a greenhouse for that.”

Moraru had worked with Bill Fowkes, a second-generation builder and the owner of FowkesBuilders in East Hampton. Fowkes and his archi-tect helped him determine the size, style andother particulars of the greenhouse. Then Moraruwent online to find a provider, settling on Texas

Greenhouses. “No one designs and buildstheir own greenhouses anymore,” saidFowkes. “Greenhouse manufacturers usetempered glass and the structures are rela-tively energy-efficient – they hold heat, col-lect passive solar energy.”

Moraru’s project presented a few chal-lenges. First, growing orchids is an art aswell as a science. The plants have strictrequirements in terms of temperature andhumidity. Because Moraru lives primarilyin Manhattan, that meant a lot of automat-ed bells and whistles.

“Orchids also need consistent, pretty highhumidity – 80-90%,” he said. “The green-house has automatic vents, a ceiling thatopens and closes as needed, automatic mist-ing and separate watering systems. There

are areas of the greenhouse that provide micro-climates necessary for specific types of orchids.”

The greenhouse was built in Texas, then senthere in parts where it was reassembled, “like anerector set,” according to Fowkes. But the founda-tion and systems had to be completely in placeprior to its arrival. “Doing a free-standing green-house is pretty basic, but because this one con-nected to the house, the project was a little moreinvolved,” Fowkes said. Connected indeed. Youcan walk into Moraru’s greenhouse from the mas-ter bedroom. Not a bad place to have your firstcup of coffee amid the orchids on a winter’s day.But integrating the new structure was a bittricky.

“There was a gas tank in the way, irrigation,electrical – we had to tie radiant heat into theexisting system of the house,” said Fowkes. “Itwas a challenge, but we put a man on the moon,so we can certainly hook up a radiant floor sys-tem.”

Even though the greenhouse manufacturershave specific designs and templates, there’s a lotof room for customization. There are severalstyles available, and the dimensions of the space– as well as the add-ons – are up to the customer.Moraru chose a traditional conservatory style tocomplement the design of his home. “I specced itout just as I wanted it,” he said. “Looking back, Iwould’ve built bigger. Five years ago, my collec-tion took up about 1/8 of the space. Now it’scrammed – particularly in the winter when Ibring orchids in from outside.”

Right now, the star of Moraru’s collection – andhis favorite orchid, named BulbophyllumMedusae – is in bloom. And being a star in thisgreenhouse is quite a distinction, considering theorchids are 1,000 strong, a number that is mostlikely growing as quickly as the plants them-selves.

“Your collection tends to build to fit the green-house,” said Moraru. “So I’d say make it as big aspossible.”

By Allegra DioguardiWhen it comes to updating interiors, paint is one of

my favorite mediums. It’s so versatile and affordable.Paint can brighten, lighten and provide a room withan entirely new appearance. To the inexperienced,selecting the perfect paint color and finish can beintimidating. After 27 years of selecting paint colors,I can tell just by looking at a paint chip what it willlook like in a room and how it will change a space. Ifyou are considering painting, here are a few tips.

Color Selection: When painting a home that youlive in, color choice is very personal. There are no“right” or “wrong” colors. It depends on the home andthe individual. In general, lighter colors will expandspace and make a room feel larger. Dark colors canmake a room cozier, moodier and more masculine.Dark colors have a reputation for making rooms feelsmaller but, when a dark color is used at the end of asight line, such as an accent wall, it can produce an

effect which will push the wall back andexpand the room. Very small spacessuch as powder rooms and dens areexcellent opportunities to use dark, richcolors. No one expects a powder room tobe “spacious” and using strong color cancreate architectural interest wherethere is none as well as punctuate therhythm of an otherwise neutral paletterunning throughout a house.

If you are planning to sell your homein the near future, the days of “paint itall white” are over. If you look at a list-ing photo of an all white/vacant room;it’s difficult to tell what you are lookingat, and it also lacks character. If you want your hometo stand out from the competition, I recommend usingneutralized colors. These are universally accepted col-ors that just feel good. Examples of “neutralized” col-ors that are good for selling are straw, golden beiges,mushroom, warm grays (trending hot this year) andsilvery sage green. In general, muted earth and softwater colors are very effective.

Whether you are designing to dwell or designing tosell, make sure the paint color you choose comple-ments the wood tones in floors and cabinets, the colorof granite, tile or stone and any other existing finish-es. You want the wall colors to flow from room to roomand complement each other. Selecting the right paintcolor can make your moldings stand out and your cab-inets and tiles look richer and more expensive.

Paint comes in several different finishes. Flat orMatte finish is just that – flat, because it doesn’treflect much light. It is very forgiving if there are

imperfections on your walls but itdoesn’t have much zip. Eggshell iswhat I usually recommend for walls. Itis slightly shinier than Matte finish soif your walls have imperfections theymay require some prep work. Satinfinish is slightly more reflective andshows a shine when looking directly atthe surface. It is typically used ontrims and doors to make them “pop,”but can be effective on walls that are inpristine condition. Semi-gloss paintworks well for moldings and doors, asit is easy to wash and very durable.High Gloss paint has the highest

sheen and is typically used for doors and built-inbookcases or cabinets.

Additionally, there is an array of textural designerfinishes that offer interesting options. For example,Ralph Lauren Paint line has a “Suede” finish (just rollit on) and another called Candlelight, which emulatesthe “flickering glow of candles” on your walls.Benjamin Moore and Ralph Lauren also offer metal-lic finishes (an old-world bronze, silvery iron and sub-tle gold). Used on a ceiling or in a powder room theycan be very dramatic.

Some of my favorite paint transformations includepainting a worn hardwood floor for a fresh new look.You can paint the entire floor or design a painted“faux area rug” to break up a large expanse of hard-wood. Your new “area rugs” can be used to define seat-ing areas or “rooms” within the room or simply create

By Tamara Matthews-StephensonWith the holiday season just around the corner,

it is a perfect time to pull out your vintage collec-tions of porcelain from the dark corners of yourcabinets, dust them off and let them shine center-stage for everyone’s enjoyment. I like to mix andmatch my antique and vintage plates with modernchina. By combining various styles of porcelain andpottery, this layered effect adds special warmth toa holiday table. A beautifully arranged table canset the tone for a wonderful holiday meal. This sea-son is one of the only times I proclaim that “more isbetter” in terms of decorating the dinner table.While in the summer months, my style is to let the

simple beauties of nature speak for themselves, duringthe winter holidays I often add vintage table linensand runners, cornucopias of fruit and vegetables ascenterpieces, and either a parade of small votive can-dles or tall candelabras to add that special glimmerand sense of wonder.

If you are in need of a few unique pieces to add toyour collection, the best place to find quality wares isat a local antique fair. I often visit antique shows whenthey come into town, either in the early morning or atthe end of the day, when business is slowest. I askquestions and gently handle the goods, because this isthe best way to learn about a particular pattern.People who work in the collectibles business are in it“hook line and sinker” and their lives often revolvearound a love for and expertise in these timeless pos-sessions. Many antique vendors travel all year fromone show to another. If you hang around the booths atthe high-end markets, you can learn much. These pro-fessionals are usually quite willing to share theirknowledge, and although they are hawking their prod-ucts, many will linger if sales are slow to chat abouttheir collections and share with you tales of theirhunt. You will soon learn that what drives these folksto pursue this career choice is often a passion for his-tory and collecting.

There are many vintage and antique patterns to col-lect. I happen to love anything made by the French

company Limoge, but I also adore Spode patterns aswell. I like Danish and English porcelain, and ofcourse, the vintage American styles from the WorldWar II era have a simple elegance that is truly unique.I have been collecting Blue Willow porcelain for over adecade and at every show I attend, I hunt for the dis-tinctive blue and white pattern in the hopes of addingto my collection. Blue Willow was produced in manycountries, and although originally made in England inthe late 1700’s, those earlier styles are the most expen-sive. I try to look for Johnson Brothers pieces, whichwere made in the United States and tend to be moreaffordable. Some of my Blue Willow is Danish, someAmerican from the 1940s, and a few are from the early1800s, but I am more careful with these older collec-tions and hang them on my kitchen wall for display topreserve them. Almost every porcelain house made itsown version of this style, but there is a distinct look tothis pattern, with the “two doves” motif always flyingabove a large Chinese dwelling flanked by trees, abridge and other details.

Researching the history of a style can be fun and themore you know about what you are collecting, themore interesting it becomes. I learned about the trag-ic, romantic legend behind the Blue Willow patternand now that I have this story indelibly etched in mymind, the style holds special meaning for me. Thestory is of two faithful lovers. On each piece is a mag-nificent tree-lined Chinese dwelling, which is thehome of a Mandarin man. His secretary Chang hadfallen in love with his daughter, Koong-see, and theymet clandestinely until the man discovered the affairand forbade the two to be together. He ordered theyoung man banished, while forcing his daughter to

stay hidden in their home, and betrothed her to awealthy viceroy named Ta-jin. The wedding wasplanned when the peach tree blossomed in the spring.

While Koong-see awaited her wedding day, shefound a coconut shell floating in the waves of the pondwith a note from Chang threatening suicide. Sheresponded with a note and Chang took his cue oncethe nuptials began, slipped into the house. The twoeloped, escaping in a boat in the rushing tide of theYangtse River. They bought an island with Ta-jin’sjewels and settled into a new home. Several yearselapsed and Chang prospered by tilling his island butwhen he wrote a novel, it attracted the attention of Ta-jin. With a military escort, Ta-jin vowed revenge onChang for stealing his bride and jewels, and attackedthe island and mortally wounded Chang. In despera-tion, Koong-see set fire to the house and perished inthe flames. The porcelain depicts the legend of thepitying gods who transformed Koong-see and Changinto two immortal doves that grace the top of eachblue and white plate. The scene plays out the tale ofthis tragic love story. The next time you pass anantique show or shop, you may want to peek insideand check out the gems that sometimes lay hidden onthe tables. A few carefully selected items have thepower to transform your table into a special eventwhile providing you with interesting stories steeped inlegend to share with your friends and family duringthis holiday season.

interest. You must first prep the floor by sanding it,then lay out your design (borders and geometrics likediamonds are easy) and tape it off with painters tapebefore painting. Most people don’t realize that lami-nate counters and cabinets can be updated by paint-ing them with a finish called Melamine paint. Makesure you sand them well and wash them with TSP(found in any paint or hardware store) to removegrease so the paint adheres. If you have builders’standard oak cabinets, you can stain them with adark walnut stain and replace the hardware for atrendy new look. Also, paint dated wood paneling fora total transformation from dull and dark to HouseBeautiful! These techniques will require some elbowgrease but they are affordable options for a do-it-yourselfer.

By David Lion Rattiner Gutters.They bring back memories of getting paid a few

bucks as a teenager for miserably cleaning themout on the roof. Gutters are hugely important inthe never-ending battle between your house andwater damage. They keep water from buildingholes into the ground and they keep rain waterfrom creeping in through windows. Good gutters,correctly pitched and professionally installed cansave you thousands of dollars in the long run ofhome ownership.

One of the most annoying and miserable

aspects of gutters is how easily they can getclogged during the Fall season. Leaves that getstuck inside gutters prevent water from runningthrough them properly, making them essentiallyuseless and pointless. You can always hire some-body to head up onto the roof and clean them out,or you can do it yourself, but you might be sur-prised to know that there is another option, andthat is to use The Gutter Shutter Company’s noclog gutter system.

The Gutter Shutter Company is a family-ownedcompany that offers a 20-year guarantee that youwill never have to deal with clogged gutters

again. The concept is pretty simple really, withthe system utilizing surface tension, similar tothe way water clings to the side of a glass from arunning faucet. It is not an add on to your gutters,but a seamless, fully incorporated gutter systemthat is enclosed and designed to keep leaves outand rain water in. The clever system has rainwa-ter flow over the top of the gutter, and then flowdown to the edge of the gutter, pushing away anydebris as it heads down into the actual chamber ofthe gutter. This gives the entire gutter a self-cleaning system that can take care of leaves, pineneedles and maple seeds (also known as helicop-ters that you can throw into the air and watchspin to the ground).

It’s a very smart system for your home, and thecompany’s reputation stands on its own veryimpressively, with over 70,000 customers world-wide who use their product. On top of the reputa-tion is the guarantee that the product actuallyworks the way it is supposed to. The GutterShutter Company offers a 20-year no pull-awaywarranty with a 100% money back guarantee.

The benefits of the system is that you will neverhave to clean your gutters again. The systemnever clogs and the lifetime guarantee is trans-ferable to new owners of your property should yousell. The aluminum that the Gutter ShutterCompany uses is .032 gauge aluminum, which isnearly double the thickness and strength of con-ventional rain gutters and is the strongest alu-minum used for residential application. The sys-tem can also be used on virtually any kind of roof.

The installation process is also complete, withno additional costs. Old gutters are removed ifnecessary and all the debris is thrown out by aGutter Shutter employee who normally has yearsof experience. The new gutters are then installed,with the studs of the system put in every 24 inch-es, making this ideal for heavy weather on yourroof like snow and ice. When the gutters are final-ly pitched correctly, the elbows of the system arecurved, allowing water to not collect at anglepoints. You can enjoy for the life of your house, avirtually maintenance-free gutter system that isunique and superior to almost all other systemsavailable on the market.

If this is something you are interested in get-ting for your home, [email protected], or call 1-866-648-8837(866-6-GUTTERS) or 631-328-1885. The companyis located in Bay Shore on Long Island.

Kid’s Calendar XÜÜ?T ÑtÜxÇà By Susan Galardi

Celebrating HalloweenMy first Halloween in New York

City in 1979 was a real eye-opener.After work one day, as I came out ofthe subway on the Upper West Side,a group of middle school kids wear-ing masks ran up to us commutersand yelled, “Got any money?”

I felt sorry for kids in the citywhen it came to Halloween.Celebrating it seemed limited toparties at school or friends’ apart-ments, or getting a few pieces ofhard candy from dry cleaners andliquor stores. It was a far cry from childhood memoriesof waiting at the door to see all the cool costumes, andeven better, trudging from neighborhood to neighbor-hood with a mob of friends and a pillowcase fromwhich apples and oranges were regularly hurled.

Remember the razor-blades-in-the-apples scare? Ihaven’t heard of any horrible Halloween dangers late-ly and I’m glad to say that in my entire trick or treat-ing life I’ve never had a bad Halloween candy experi-ence, except for one year when I didn’t get as muchchocolate as I would have liked.

Otherwise, the big dangers in Halloween candy arelimited to what it can do to your blood sugar, weightand dental health. Not only do you have to be con-cerned about your child, having all that candy aroundisn’t great for adults either.

You probably already have the giant bags of candyfrom the drug store, but if not, there are other optionsfor Halloween treats. You can avoid the candy predica-ment all together by giving out non-food items likescary stickers, pencils/erasers or bubbles. But thereare risks to this. First, you risk the disapproval of yourkids and the shame they may endure at school nextweek. Also, once word gets out that you have the worstHalloween treats in the neighborhood, traffic to your

house will decrease.So if you go with candy, one sug-

gestion for helping kids and adultsmanage temptation is to buy candyyou don’t like very much (eventhought this is the perfect opportuni-ty to stock up on Butterfingers), andto get rid of any that you haven’tpassed out to the kiddies right afterHalloween. If you bought things youdon’t like, it will be easier to partwith it. If it’s still packaged, you cangive it to a food pantry. Otherwise, it

should be quickly relegated to one of those niceNorsic garbage carts.

Out here on the East End, which seems likeMayberry sometimes, it’s still important to take pre-cautions to keep those tricksters safe in the darkHallow’s Eve night.

Put the kids in bright costumes or add reflectivetape to them (the costumes – not the kids) and candybags so the kids can be easily seen in the dark.Carrying a glow stick or flashlight is always good,too.

Plan out a general trick-or-treating route in famil-iar neighborhoods with well-lit streets. Avoid poorlylit homes

Don’t send the little ones out alone, and alwayswalk with them to the door to get treats. Older kidsshould travel in groups.

Remind kids not to go near cars, occupied or not,unless you’re with them.

Make sure kids know their home phone numberand address in case you get separated. Little onesshould know how to call 911 in an emergency.

DAN'S PAPERS, October 30, 2009 Page 40 www.danshamptons.com

I have a love-hate relation-ship with the harvest season onthe North Fork. On one hand,it’s an exciting time filled withhope for a new vintage of localwines after a – and this is espe-cially true this year – hard-fought growing season. Thereare few smells in the world thatmake me happier than thesmell of new wines fermentingaccompanied by an orchestra ofbubbling air locks. The toma-toes are mostly gone for anoth-er year, but hearty wintersquash is peaking now, too –and finding its way onto mydinner plate a few nights aweek.

I love the fall season on theEast End.

And I hate it – mostlybecause of the throngs of pump-kin-picking day-trippers whoclog the roads between me and the wineries I wantto visit and the wines I want to taste. Of course,those seasonal customers help support local farmsand also, I hope, support the same wineries. Theyare a necessary evil.

Of course, they don’t stop me. I still find myselfon Main Road and Route 48 almost every weekend,

trying to taste at a few wineriesbefore the traffic slows to a halt.And several wines I’ve tastedlately are well worth the timespent navigating pumpkin- andmum-filled wagons and roastedcorn chompers. Here are just afew of them. Palmer Vineyards2006 Proprietor’s ReserveCabernet Franc ($25). Spanish-born winemaker Miguel Martinhas been a great addition toPalmer Vineyards, and this, oneof his first red releases, impress-es. Sweet red cherries dominatethe nose with brown spice, blackpepper and hints of smoky oak.There is a subtle dried-herb com-ponent underneath that emergesa bit more after the wine hasbeen open for several hours.Medium-bodied, it has a core ofsweet red cherry and raspberry(tasting almost of cherry hard

candy) with dusty black pepper, cinnamon spice,light vanilla and leather that carries through onthe long finish. The tannins are smooth and wellintegrated.

Onabay Vineyards 2007 Wild FermentChardonnay ($27). It’s easy to write off barrel-fer-mented chardonnay as a category because so many

are done poorly. Not so with this one. As its labelhints, it is fermented (two-thirds in oak) using theindigenous (aka “wild”) yeast that is naturallyfound on the grapes when harvested. The noseoffers lots of ripe pear with baking spice, lightsweet corn and white flower aromas layeredbeneath. Mouth-filling, spice-roasted pear flavorslead the way on the fuller-bodied, round-but-bal-anced palate, with lemon curd stepping forward onthe creamy mid-palate. The finish is long and crisp,with nice acidity and an intriguing spicy lees note.

Sparkling Pointe 2005 Topaz Imperial ($33).Owners Tom and Cynthia Rosicki opened their newtasting room on Route 48 last weekend and as wetasted through their three bubblies, this one – forthe money – stood out. A faint topaz color (thus thename), this sparkler made with pinot noir andchardonnay offers beautiful, high-toned cranberry,white cherry and pear flavors with a slightly creammid-palate and terrific acidity. I bought a bottle toshare with my family at Thanksgiving.

Long Island Merlot Alliance 2006 Merliance($35). Co-produced by the members of the LongIsland Merlot Alliance, this cool-year red has a lay-ered, complex nose of red cherry, raspberry andblackberry fruit sprinkled with a generous array ofherbs (thyme, mint and lavender), a little bakingspice, leather and a soft vanilla note. Medium-bod-ied with understated fruit, the palate has flavorsthat closely match the nose with a faint eucalyptusnote added to the herb salad. The tannins are wellincorporated and relatively light with light aciditybringing just a bit more structure. The leatheryspice is a bit more pronounced on day two andsteps forward on the longer-than-expected finish.

This is just a handful of the wines that are worthnoting lately. Get out there and explore wine coun-try – even if it means playing a real-life game ofFrogger with all those pumpkin pickers.

By Janet FloraRemember collagen injections? Before using

collagen as a filler for nasolabial folds (thosetwo lines – or folds, depending on how deepyours are – that run from the sides of the noseto the top of the lips), first you had to be testedto see if you were allergic. Most collagen camefrom cows (thus the term “bovine collagen”),and some women who were allergic were ableto use collagen from cadavers. Both optionsseem equally unappealing, particularly nowthat there are so many injectables with lovely-sounding names such as Radiesse®,Restylane® and Juvéderm™.

They all do the same thing and they don’trequire allergy testing. They act as fillers forfine lines, folds and wrinkles, not only in thenasolabial folds, but also for the vertical linesaround the lips. They can also be used to plumpthe lips. While each of these fillers erases foldsand lines, most differ in how long their results last.

There is another injectable that promises to actu-ally rebuild collagen. The product is Sculptra™, asynthetic material not made from human or animalsources. The main ingredient is Poly-L-, a derivativeof the alpha hydroxy family. Sculptra has beenapproved since 1994 for treatment of facial wastingin HIV patients, but this year it received approval forcosmetic use.

I spoke to Jeanine B. Downie, M.D., a board-certi-

fied dermatologist in both New York and New Jersey.Her private practice, Image Dermatology, is locatedin Montclair, New Jersey. Dr. Downie is frequentlyfeatured on the “Today” show, “Good MorningAmerica,” “The View” and many other national TVshows. She said, “I have been using Sculptra cosmet-ically since 2004.” According to Dr. Downie, the prod-uct is gaining popularity. “It works best on saggingskin,” she said. It is also used around the templesand where hallowing tends to show age. Most

remarkably, Sculptra can be used in the hands,which seem to age faster than the rest of ourbodies due to sun exposure and working condi-tions.

All doctors have different fees, but Dr.Downie charges $1,000 per vial. Typically apatient is injected once a month for three to sixmonths. Results usually last two years.

Unlike Radiesse, Restylane and Juvéderm,which are generally used for fine lines andfolds, Sculptra can be used for larger areas ofthe face. It can define cheekbones, build weakchins and fill in hallows underneath the eyes.

If there is a buzzword in beauty, it is volume.We want volume in our hair, our eyelashes, ourbreasts and even our butts. Full is glamorous,full is youthful. One of the causes of aging inwomen is the lower level of estrogen. Estrogennot only keeps us fertile, but also keeps uslooking young. I remember my grandmother

touting the benefits of hormone replacement therapyafter menopause. Today, however, we know better,and most physicians agree the risks outweigh thebenefits.

If you want to do more than fill a fold or freeze abrow with Botox, you might consider Sculptra. Likeany injectable Dr. Downie told me there are somerisks (like bruising at the injection site). But the pro-cedure is safe when performed by a qualified, board-certified dermatologist.

Brian Halweil, editor of the impressive magazine,Edible East End, a magazine that touches on localpersonalities working with all manner of local food,gave a significant speech recently on the politicaleffects of eating locally. I quote Halweil who said,“Because the closer we are to where our food is raised,the more control we have over how it is raised, overhow our neighbors are making a living, over how ourlandscape is used.” “Eating local ends up being an actof conservation, he continued. It’s also a way to con-serve the diversity of food. We eat to survive, we alsohave to eat local to be sure that this place survives.”

Indeed here on the East End of Long Island, ourvast farming community, the seas that surround usand our local artisans have created an amazing diver-sity of cheese, honey, mushrooms, preserves and moregood things to eat.

Yes, many of our farm stands will be closing soon soenjoy the fruits of the field to prepare dishes that youcan benefit from through the winter months. Tomatosauces made with sauce tomatoes from farm stands,vegetable soups and vegetables baked into casserolescan be frozen and local poultry, eggs and seafood areavailable through the year. People need to be per-suaded to change their behavior about something asintimate as food – and learn how to cook!

TURNIP OR RUTABAGA PUREEBoth vegetables are from the cabbage family and are

often confused. Rutabagas are larger than turnips andare distinguished by an ‘ochre-colored swollen neck.The turnip has little or no neck. When farm fresh andcooked with care these vegetables can be surprisinglypalatable.

Serves 6

1 1/2 pounds turnips or rutabaga, trimmedCoarse (kosher) salt 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, sliced1 tablespoon Turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw)2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves2 tablespoons creamFreshly ground pepper

1. Scrub turnips clean under running water or ifusing rutabaga, peel them. Cut turnips or rutabagainto 1/2-inch sliced then cut turnips into 1/2-inchwedges. If using rutabaga cut half the size of theturnips. Place vegetable in a pot of cold water to coverand bring to the boil over high heat. Add salt to taste,and cook at a brisk simmer with cover ajar, until ten-der, about 15 to 18 minutes. Test for doneness withthe tip of a paring knife. Drain.

2. Place the vegetable in a food processor fitted withsteel knife and process to a coarse puree. Add butter,sugar, thyme leaves, cream, salt to taste and freshlyground pepper. Process ingredients to a fine puree,pushing down sides with a rubber spatula as neces-sary. Taste to adjust seasoning. The puree can be pre-pared ahead to this point. Keep warm in a water bath,stirring occasionally, until ready to serve ormicrowave for 11/2 – 2 minutes.


This timely recipe is a reminder that cauliflowercan be a luxurious vegetable when paired with the lastof seasonal tomatoes and garden fresh basil.

Serves 6-8

1 medium farm-fresh cauliflower, about 1 1/2 - 2pounds

Coarse (kosher) salt for the cooking waterFreshly ground pepper5 ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded and coarsely

chopped3 tablespoons chiffonade of fresh basil2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese2 tablespoons plain bread crumbs2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small dice

1. Cut off the base of the cauliflower and removeleaves. Pull the florets away from the core and soak ina bowl of cold water for 20 minutes. Drain.

2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a rollingboil. Add one to two tablespoons of coarse salt to tasteand add the florets. Bring back to the boil and cook ata brisk simmer for 6-7 minutes; then drain andrefresh under cool water. Drain well and pat dry toabsorb as much of the moisture as possible.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

3. Arrange florets in a buttered baking dish. In abowl, mix the tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper to tasteand spoon over the cauliflower. Pour over olive oil toand toss to coat. Mix the cheese and breadcrumbs andsprinkle evenly over the mixture. Can be preparedahead to this point and refrigerated covered for sev-eral hours or overnight. When ready to bake, bring toroom temperature if refrigerated, dot with butter andbake in preheated oven for 25 minutes until hot andbubbly. Serve at once. Recipe may be frozen for up toa month.

Page 48: Dan's Papers Oct. 30, 2009

By Susan M. GalardiWhat kind of a person would go to a Mexican

restaurant and order a grilled organic Cornish henmarinated with lime and tequila?

The same kind of person who would then beextremely happy and self satisfied.

The Blue Parrot in East Hampton, which, twoyears ago, went the way of the canary in the coalmine, was given new life last summer by a brand newteam of investors/owners – namely Ron Perelman,Jon Bon Jovi and Renee Zellweger. Last summer, theplace was crazy – sometimes you couldn’t even getinto the bar.

So it was wonderful to go to the Blue Parrot for anearly (5:30) dinner on a Saturday night.

The interior of the Parrot has been cleaned up.Banquettes with new moss green cushions have beenadded to the back dining room, which is decoratedwith vintage posters of films like Viva Zapata andTristessa. The place feels warm and happy, very un-Hampton. Not only could I imagine it to be a perfectextension of the beach where you could slap in on flipflops, but on that chilly fall night, it was a real moodchanger just to walk into the place, with its brightcolors, fanciful décor (like strings of cowboy boot andcactus lights, and painted ukeleles) and upbeatmusic.

Appetizer selections include the expected gua-camoles (classic and the more spicy chipotle) for $12,as well as steamed mussels, nachos (both $12), andtaquitos (three for $14). We tried the classic gua-camole which was very mild, with a very little hintof much else but avocados. That day, the avocadosused in the guac weren’t the ripest, creating more ofa juicy result than a smooth mush. The restaurantoffers quesadillas ($14-17) and burritos ($14-16), aswell as a variety of salads at $11-14) but we opted forthe entrees: Enter, the Cornish hen ($25).

I don’t know how Mexican this is, beyond thelime/tequila marinade, but it was just delicious. Thebird came butterflied and largely de-boned. The meatwas moist and flavorful, the skin crispy and pleas-antly salty, the sauce was rich and well balanced. Ontop was a small pile of pickled onions, just the thingto add tang. Sides of lightly seasoned rice and mildblack beans made it a very nice dish.

We also tried the Shrimp Albahaca Pipian ($24),which was shrimp hidden beneath a goodly amountof pesto sauce. How was it Mexican? The pesto wasmade with pumpkin seeds rather than pignolas. Thiswas served with very good sautéed spinach with gar-lic, and white rice.

Other entrees range in price from $17 for meat-balls and $19 for Chile Relleno, to our entrees whichwere at the highest price point.

Blue Parrot had a good kids menu. The youngdiner at the table tried the burger, which was a com-pletely respectable, substantial Black Angus beefburger served on a toasted Kaiser roll with fries. The

burger is $13 on the dinner menu, $12 on the barmenu.

Desserts, all $8, include a chocolate mousse cake,ice cream or sorbet, and a Cinnamon Corn Flanwhich was delicious. The custard had just a mildscent of cinnamon, and was served with four concordgrapes and fresh mint. We also tried a specialdessert, Chihuahua cheese cake made withChihuahua cheese. A “good” cheesecake is a very per-sonal judgment. This had some pleasant grit, more inthe style of those delectable, well-textured Italianricotta cheesecakes than the all-cream-cheese con-coctions more popular in this neck of the woods. Themildly sweet cheesecake was served on a plate oftart strawberry puree, and topped with a layer ofcaramel sauce. I’d order it again.

You can’t talk about Mexican restaurants, espe-cially the Blue Parrot, with talking aboutMargaritas. The house special “Dirty Bird” at $9, wasfresh and tasty without being mouth puckering – andthis, we were told, is the most tart of the three mar-gies they offer. There’s a small but good selection ofwines by the glass, priced from $8 to $13; an equallysmall list of wines by the bottle, from $35 for anArgentinian “Don David” to a $575 bottle of ColginCellars Tychan Hill Vineyard Cabernet. It’s all abouttequilas here – from $11 for a shot of Chinaco Silverand Milagro Silver to $45 for H. Seleccion Suprema.

Blue Parrot has lots of special menus: A lunchmenu with the expected Mexican offerings as well astortas with tuna, meatballs, or grilled chicken; abar/late night menu at reasonable prices; and specialnights like Dirty Bird Tuesdays, two for oneWednesdays and Karaoke Thursdays.

Blue Parrot: 33 Main Street, East Hampton, 329-2583. Lunch daily, 11:30-3:30; Dinner Sun.-Thurs.5:30 – 10:30/Fri. and Sat. 5:30-11 p.m.

DAN'S PAPERS, October 30, 2009 Page 49 www.danshamptons.com

By Tiffany RazzanoPromoting the release of his latest

album Live & Mo’ – the first to bereleased on his new independent label,Yolabelle International – bluesy singer-songwriter Keb’ Mo’ will come to theWesthampton Beach Performing ArtsCenter on Nov. 1 as part of a coast-to-coast tour. Very much rooted in the tra-ditional blues music of the MississippiDelta, Mo’s songwriting transcendsgenres, embracing jazz, folk, rock andeven pop music.

Live & Mo’ is a mix of old favorites –six songs culled from recordings of pastlive performances – and four new stu-dio recordings, including “A Brand NewAmerica, “Victims of Comfort,” “Government Cheese”and “Hole in the Bucket.” This album marks the breakof Mo’, a thrice Grammy-nominated artist, from theEpic record label, during a time when you see moreand more major artists pulling away from biggerlabels. The album can be purchased online atkebmo.com. Mo’ recently redesigned his website’s mer-chandise store, Mo’ Stuff, to coincide with the releaseof his album. The online store features not only hisentire discography, but also a clothing line and otheritems.

Mo’s keeping busy in other ways, as well. He hasdonated an acoustic version of his song “A Brand NewAmerica” to the Census 2010 informational video pro-

duced by the NAACP. He’s also lent hisvocals to the video in a different way, bydoing the voiceover for it.

And he’s no stranger to acting. Heportrayed Robert Johnson in a docu-mentary, appeared on “Touched By anAngel” and “The West Wing,” and willmake an appearance on an episode ofComedy Central’s “Sarah SilvermanProgram.” He’ll be joined by RoyGaines and Finis Tasby, who both alsohail from the Los Angeles blues scene.

Born in Los Angeles as Kevin Mooreto parents whose roots were in theDeep South, he became involved in thelocal blues scene after becoming inter-ested in blues and Gospel music at an

early age. Eventually, after performing and releasingmusic under his own name, he adopted the stage nameof Keb’ Mo’, introducing it to the world with a self-titled album in 1994.

Since then, Mo’ has been unstoppable, releasingmore than 10 albums. He received his first Grammynomination in 1996 for Just Like You, and was nomi-nated again with his next release, Slow Down, twoyears later. He was most recently nominated for 2004’sKeep It Simple.

Keb’ Mo’ will perform at the Westhampton BeachPerforming Arts Center at 8 p.m. on Nov. 1. Tickets are$115/$95/$75. Tickets can be purchased atwhbpac.org. Go to kebmo.com for more information.

Among the many images on the website of thisweek’s cover artist Dan Rizzie, one in particularstands out and gives a clue as to the artist’s aesthet-ics. The image can be easily lost in the accompanyingtext: a solitary bird in the foreground with alphabetletters floating in the background. The letters seemarbitrarily placed, and don’t appear to form words.

For this critic, the juxtaposition of both the singlevisual and the letters constitutes Rizzie’s “language,”one that is disparate and segmented (since it’s notclear how the bird and the alphabet are connected),yet also symbiotic in nature.

Put simply, Rizzie’s aesthetics are influenced bydiverse living experiences and environments. Yet nomatter where he lives and works, those reflectionsare constantly with him. Such an observation mayapply to other artists as well, but somehow Rizzie’sinfluences are less obvious, signifying somethingclose to stream-of-consciousness.

For example, a bird placed on a tree branch mayrepresent a particular time and place, while a simi-lar bird positioned differently in another print,painting or collage may symbolize a contradictoryenvironment or experience.

Q: First, the obvious question: how did your livingconditions impact your art?

A: I grew up overseas in the Middle East andIndia. Visiting the pyramids, for example, had a last-ing influence on my life.

Q: I would imagine Islamic art also played a bigrole.

A: I went back to India this summer; the Islamicimagery and the inlaid floral designs all made a bigimpression. I brought one of my catalogs with meand gave it to the guide at the Taj Mahal. He wassurprised, and so was I, at the similarities. I waskind of stunned, in fact, that I had kept the imageryin my imagination.

Q: When you moved here in 1989, how did this set-ting influence you?

A: When I first saw the house in North Haven thatI would move into, I said, “This is my house.” I madetwo moveable glass doors from my garage doors so Icould look out and see the water, birds feeding, deer.

Q: Thus the presence of birds in your work. Thereare so many things going on at one time when youlook out the window; that’s in your art, too. It’s like astream-of-consciousness, at least to me.

A: Moving out here was good for me. I can control

my work, all those things happening at once.Q: How about the circular forms in your work?

Where did they come from? A: Alan Shields gave me an iron circular ball,

which was a perfect sphere. That influenced me.Q: What other setting has impacted you?A: Italy. We go to Lucca every year; it’s surrounded

by a medieval wall and not far from Florence. Thetown’s patina and color are inspirations. I feel athome.

Q: Are you involved with art that is more collabo-rative and less influenced by your environment?

A: Yes. I love making prints and working with theCleveland Print Club. I also love to cook, using mygrandparents’ and mother’s recipes.

Q: You’ve talked about subject matter, but howabout materials? Has your environment impactedthat?

A: I love “stuff” in Europe, which is so historical.And I love old paper, “ephemera.” Also I like usinglocal materials I find in flea markets.

Q: There you are, putting things together, not fromwhat you see but perhaps from what you imagine. Bethat as it may, how would you describe yourself?

A: I’m steeped in tradition. I am a traditionalist.–Marion Wolberg WeissMr. Rizzie’s work can be seen online at www.dan-

Police BlotterAccidentA car accident took place in Bridgehampton down

the street from the Candy Kitchen. The carsinvolved were a Lexus SUV and a Honda Civic. TheCivic crashed behind the SUV. No injuries werereported.

School Bus WhoopsieA school bus with students inside, smashed into a

parked car at East Hampton High School. Nobodywas injured, but the vehicle involved received morethan $1,000 in damages.

Mad Dog A woman in Montauk reported to police that a

man yelled at her after her dog went near the manand began to eat fish that he left laying out on the

beach. The woman told police that the man thenpulled out a knife and threatened her. She calledpolice, who could not find anybody on the beachwhen they arrived. That is one very angry fisher-man out there in Montauk. Chill.

Green BikeA green bike was reported stolen, valued at

around $458. It was stolen while parked in town inEast Hampton. There were no reports of a hot pinkbike stolen.

Hot ChiliA man on the North Fork began throwing hot chili

at another man at a chili making contest. An argu-ment broke out between to men, and one resorted tochili throwing after he became furious at how the

other man talked about his chili. No charges werefiled, but the victim of the chili throwing is demand-ing retaliation. He is hoping to be able to throw hotoatmeal at the man at a later date.

Paranormal IdiocyTeenagers in Hampton Bays were caught sneak-

ing into the new film Paranormal Activity over theweekend. The teenagers were caught after one wasspotted by a movie employee going in through theback door of the theater.

GORGEOUS CARDear Bob Gelber,Every week I always enjoy getting to your column.

But, the October 2 issue was particularly fun since Iam the owner of a ‘67 Primrose Jaguar XKEConvertible.

Thank you for recognizing what I have alwaystruly believed that it is probably one of the mostbeautiful car designs and this is a car that I have reg-ularly enjoyed driving every summer inSouthampton for the last 18 years.

Joel J. CooperPresidentList Strategies, Inc.Madison AvenueNYCVia e-mail

It is. The Austin Healey of 1958 is pretty cool too. - DR

DEFICIT INFODear Dan,Thanks for the info on the size of the deficit. I

assume that there simply would not be enough viola-tions to cover something that large. However, Ibelieve that if we had a public lynching of all theguilty politicians, charging $200 per person for view-ing, we would end up with a surplus!

One further idea that just might make our electedofficials actually do some good for a change just as wehave to put our homes up for collateral when we bor-row money from a bank, how about each public offi-cial having to do the same? We might actually end upwith some real accountability for the first time.

SHELTER ISLAND, NOT MONTAUKDear Dan,The film Masquerade with the burning sailboat

starring Rob Lowe, was filmed on Shelter Island, notMontauk, as is stated in the article. The boat burnedbehind Redding’s Market on Bridge Street.

MEATDear Editor,Just in time for the observance of National School

Lunch Week, the Baltimore City Public School sys-tem became the first in the United States to offer its80,000 students a weekly break from meat and asso-ciated chronic diseases. It’s a welcome start on a longroad to improving our children’s and our nation’shealth.

Traditionally, the National School Lunch Programhas served as a dumping ground for USDA’s surplusmeat and dairy commodities. Not surprisingly,USDA’s own surveys indicate that 90% of Americanchildren consume excessive amounts of fat, and only15% eat the recommended servings of fruits and veg-etables. Consequently, nearly half of American chil-dren are overweight, 25% have high cholesterol andblood pressure, and 30,000 suffer from Type 2 dia-betes, once limited to adults. Their early dietaryflaws become lifelong addictions, contributing to theescalating public health crisis.

But change is on the way. Hawaii, California, NewYork, and Florida legislatures have asked theirschools to offer daily vegan/vegetarian options.According to the School Nutrition Association, 52percent of U.S. school districts now do. PresidentObama is likely to call for similar measures whenCongress reauthorizes the Child Nutrition Act later

this year.Parents and others who care about our children’s

health should work with PTAs and school officials todemand healthful plant-based school meals, snacks,and vending machine items.

They can get additional information at schoolnu-trition.org, schoolmeals.nal.usda.gov, healthyschool-lunches.org, and choiceusa.net.

Sincerely,Brody WardenCalverton, NY Via e-mail

I agree. - DR

THE SUBWAYS AMONG USDear Dan,I just saw “The Hamptons Subway Newsletter” and

wanted to relay a story to you.My husband (Rob) and I (Damia) have a small

design studio in Northampton, Massachusetts. Thispast holiday we made a fake subway map poster ofour area to give to friends and clients as a gift. Wealso gave several out to local caféés, restaurants andstores that we frequent. Enough people saw themand told us we should sell them that we started tolook into it as a side project and possible business. Soa few months ago, we launched Transit AuthorityFigures – purveyors of fake/highly unlikely/idealworld subway system maps. We now have nineposters, and included in the most recent set is a mapof The Hamptons/North Fork/Shelter Island ().

Today I was doing research to figure out whatblogs and press outlets we should send informationto. In fact, I was getting ready to send some informa-tion about our version of The Hamptons/North ForkSubway Map to your blog. But when I went down toour studio, Rob was looking shocked. He had been tothe Hamptons in May and had picked up one of yourpapers. It’s been on a shelf since then, but today hepicked it up and saw in the contents your subwaynewsletter. And then we saw your book One Year onthe Hamptons Subway and momentarily panicked, aswe thought it might actually be real. Then we real-ized that you have this amazing sense of humorabout the place and how the subway might actuallywork. I wish we’d found you a few months ago!

So...I would love to send you one of our posters.And if you have time, I’d also love to chat about yourvision of the subway. Please let me know if there is anaddress where I can send it.

Thanks so much and cheers!Damia StewartRob & Damia Design

One is now framed and hanging in our offices. -DR
