Busy Week Of DWI Arrests In East Hampton

first_imgThere were nine arrests on drunken driving charges made by East Hampton Town police through Monday morning this past week. Several are detailed elsewhere in this issue.An excessively high breath test reading has resulted in an East Hampton man now facing an aggravated misdemeanor drunken driving charge, according to police. Matthew Silich, 22, was driving a 2010 Volkswagen on Main Street in East Hampton Village early Monday morning when a town officer reported him swerving multiple times across the double yellow lines, leading to a traffic stop.The officer said Silich smelled of alcohol, was unsteady on his feet, and failed sobriety tests. He reportedly told police he was coming from the Stephen Talkhouse and had consumed “two Montauks.”Under arrest on a charge of driving while intoxicated, he was taken to headquarters, where a breath test to determine the percentage of alcohol in his blood produced a reading of 0.26 percent reading, the police said. That reading is more than three times the legal limit and well above the 0.18 mark that automatically raises the charge to the aggravated level.His family was in court later Monday morning for his arraignment. Carl Irace, one of two attorneys retained by the state to represent defendants being arraigned on weekends and holidays, stood next to Silich. Irace told East Hampton Town Justice Steven Tekulsky that Silich had recently graduated from college. Irace questioned the high reading, saying it didn’t seem to match the other facts of the case, such as Silich’s statement to police, and his physical appearance.That question, Justice Tekulsky responded, will have to be brought up in the future by whichever attorney Silich retains. Under the state-run weekend lawyer program, the attorneys are not allowed to represent the defendants past the arraignment.Justice Tekulsky ordered Silich released without bail, saying he had strong community ties, though he did express concern about the high reading.A 2018 Tesla allegedly moving at 87 miles per hour on West Lake Drive in Montauk led to a traffic stop, which was followed by the arrest of Antonello Paganuzzi, 48, early Sunday morning on a drunken driving charge.The arresting officer said Paganuzzi, who splits his time between Davie, Florida, and Montauk, along with other locations, smelled strongly of alcohol, and failed roadside sobriety tests.There was a passenger in the Tesla at the time. “I just wanted to show him the pickup of the car,” Paganuzzi is quoted as telling the officer. “I thought I was going like 75.” The speed limit on West Lake Drive is 45 mph. The northbound Tesla was pulled over near Star Island Drive, the police said.Paggnuzzi was taken to headquarters, where East Hampton Town police said he refused a breath test.Besides a speeding ticket and a misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charge, Paganuzzi is also facing a felony charge of unlicensed driving.However, Brian DeSesa, the other attorney in the weekend program, was on hand Sunday, and represented Pagnuzzi. DeSesa said that he believed the felony charge may be dropped. Paganuzzi’s license had been suspended, DeSesa said, for failure to pay a fee. That may have been a clerical error, which would eliminate the charge. “He believes he did clear that,” DeSesa said.Justice Lisa Rana told Pagnuzzi that his license was suspended for the next year for refusing the breath test, pending a hearing at the Department of Motor Vehicles. “You cannot drive,” she said.As she considered the proper bail amount, she asked what Pagnuzzi did for a living, and what his connection to the Town of East Hampton was, and was told he is the director of operations for LDV Hospitality. The firm runs Scarpetta, a fine-dining restaurant at both Gurney’s Resort in Montauk and Gurney’s in Newport, as well as other locations. Bail of $1,500 was set and posted.An East Hampton Town police officer following a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro she said was being driven erratically ended up arresting Juan Castillo-Forero, 28, on a drunk driving charge after he turned into the parking area west of what is commonly known as the “Smiley Motel” in downtown Montauk and smacked into a wooden barrier, early on May 23.During his arraignment later that day, Castillo-Forero told the court that, while his license states that he lives in Northport, he recently moved to Montauk, where he is working as a manager at Gurney’s resort.Besides the misdemeanor driving while intoxicated counts, Castillo-Forero was also charged with several traffic infractions. “I had two beers,” he reportedly told the arresting officer. A breath test at headquarters produced a reading of 0.14 of one percent. Intoxication is defined as any reading of 0.08 or higher.Castillo-Forero posted $250 bail.Town police also arrested Miguel Uzhca Carchippula around midnight Friday. Police said they found him behind the wheel of a 2006 Nissan Murano, engine running, at the Speedway gas station in Wainscott. He failed roadside sobriety tests and was arrested. Uzhca Carchipulla, 30, an East Hampton resident and day laborer, refused to take the breath test at headquarters.His family was in the court for his Saturday morning arraignment. His driving privilege was suspended for the next year. His family posted $250 bail for his release.William Edwards, 29, of Plainview, had the lowest reading of the week, 0.11. Police said they found him sitting in a 2010 Honda Accord stopped in the middle of the intersection of MontaukHighway and West Gate Road in Wainscott about 2 AM Monday. Cited for obstructing traffic, he was then charged with misdemeanor DWI. He was freed later Monday after posting $200 bail, with a future date on the East Hampton Town Justice Court’s criminal calendar.tom.e@indyeastend.com Sharelast_img read more

Fresno, The Bell & Anchor Are Bright Beacons

first_imgIndependent/Jason PenneyDavid Loewenberg is known for his trio of restaurants: Fresno (in East Hampton), Beacon (in Sag Harbor), and The Bell & Anchor (also in Sag Harbor). Of the three, Beacon, which faces the water and is known for its superlative sunsets, is the only restaurant that is seasonal. It opens each year right before Memorial Day, the opening itself a bright reminder that summer is finally here. That restaurant is not yet open, and it’s hard to know what the start to our season will look like this year, since restaurants — and everything else — sit under a haze of uncertainty.Don’t let that last part get you down. Loewenberg, like so many other restaurateurs, is determined to keep you well fed for as long as he can, and so The Bell & Anchor and Fresno have been soldiering on, beacons, if you will, in a storm. During the last week of March, The Bell & Anchor launched Anchor’s Away, a take-out menu that is available Tuesdays through Sundays. Orders can be placed until 7 PM and pickup hours are from 5 to 7:30. Orders can be placed by phone, at 631-725-3400, or by email, earlier in the day: order@bellandanchor.com.If you’ve read my articles in years past, you already know that I’m an enthusiastic proponent of The Bell & Anchor’s Sunday oyster night (Fresno has it, too), where Montauk Pearls are $1 apiece. The restaurant would, no doubt, be out of business if it offered this deal for takeout, but it is still offering Pearls on the half-shell, along with its delicious mignonette and cocktail sauce. It also has 1.5-pound lobsters, steamed alongside fingerling potatoes and haricots verts. For appetizers, the list is incredibly long. It includes (and isn’t even limited to) clam and fish chowder with bacon and cream; steamed mussels with coconut milk and Thai chiles; tuna poké with avocado, shiso, and ponzu; and shrimp and grits with crispy pork belly.The bouillabaisse, made with white fish, lobster, mussels, clams, and shrimp, is one of the entrees on offer. So is a pan-roasted Scottish salmon ramen, a lobster rigatoni with roasted corn, a vegan plate with pineapple-cashew quinoa, guava baby-back ribs with mashed potatoes, a Milanese-style pork chop with a frisée salad, a grilled flat-iron steak with Béarnaise sauce, and a traditional burger. There is a slight dessert menu, too. Down the road, at Fresno, takeout can be placed Thursdays through Mondays. Call 631-324-8700 from 3:30 to 7 PM or email info@fresnorestaurant.com. Each day, the restaurant posts additional specials, a fun respite to a world that feels anything but special right now. Recent specials have included an appetizer of sautéed wild mushrooms over creamy polenta and crispy Buffalo-style Montauk Pearl oysters. Other Fresno favorites, like appetizers of salmon tartare with jalapeño and potato chips, or green garbanzo hummus, persist. So, too, do entrees of orecchiette with hot and sweet Italian sausage, broccoli rabe, and roast garlic; pan-seared Atlantic salmon over Moroccan cous-cous; a grilled Duroc pork chop with butternut squash farotto; and a flat-iron steak with an arugula salad and pommes frites.You can finish your meal, happily, with a dark chocolate pot de crème, or, more happily, with a batched cocktail. Fresno offers a choice of a Meyer Lemon Cosmo, Beacon Ruby Rita, and Quarantini (Tito’s Vodka, lemon, local honey, and rosemary), all for between $25 and $30. They’re 16 ounces. At home, add ice, and split them between three people, or, uh, don’t.Not everyone will survive this crisis. That’s an unfortunate reality. We just don’t know how long restaurants can survive on takeout alone, and we also don’t know how long this new brand of reality will last. If you can help keep local businesses alive, takeout is the new dining out, at least for now. There’s no better place to start than with these two restaurants. Sharelast_img read more

Hogs escape, run free on interstate after semi overturns

first_imgKRLD radio reporter Chelsea Wade reports there were about 200 hogs in the trailer several hours after the 18-wheeler overturned. Hogs escape, run free on interstate after semi overturns WILMER, Texas (CBS) An 18-wheeler carrying a load of pigs crashed during rush hour Thursday morning on Interstate 45 outside Dallas, closing the roadway in both directions.The big rig crashed into the center median on I-45 around 6:30 a.m., turning on its side and bursting into flames, CBS DFW reports.The rig was loaded with hogs, some of which got loose on the highway. Local police asked for help from the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department livestock unit, and a hazardous materials crew was also called to handle the injured and dead animals.Photos and video from the scene showed livestock handlers trying to corral the hogs trotting along the interstate and rescue the animals left in the trailer.

Up against it

first_imgConspiracy theorists may want to take a seat for this one. The Association of British Insurers hosts its annual motor conference next month, with some eye-catching people on the agenda. Chair of the event is Susanna Reid, co-presenter of BBC Breakfast. No doubt she will recuse herself next time the show runs a piece on the high cost of car insurance (usual flavour: it’s the lawyers’ fault). And making an all-too-common public appearance is Jack Straw (pictured), who pops up in the afternoon to speak about risk-based pricing. Straw, who has made his views fairly clear on the car insurance racket (usual flavour: it’s the lawyers’ fault), surely can’t be in need of the cash. Parliamentary records show he has pocketed almost £45,000 for speaking engagements in the last year alone, in addition to £92,250 received in advance for the manuscripts of a book. Obiter will peruse the register of members’ interests with, ahem, interest, to see how much the ABI is boosting his income. Straw isn’t the only MP on the agenda. ABI delegates will hear from transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin; chair of the parliamentary group on insurance Jonathan Evans; and Louise Ellman, chair of the transport select committee. Of course there’s nothing improper in all this – but the legal profession needs to know what it is up against.last_img read more

Vivarail D-Train enters passenger service

first_imgUK: West Midlands Trains put its first Class 230 ‘D-Train’ DMU into passenger service on April 23, working the Marston Vale route between Bletchley and Bedford, which forms part of its London Northwestern Railway business unit.The Abellio-led franchise operator ordered the three two-car units from Vivarail to provide extra capacity and improved customer amenities, including accessible toilets and USB sockets at every seat. The remaining two sets are expected to enter service in the coming weeks. The new timetable which starts next month will provide an hourly service each way on Monday to Saturday, with Sunday trains to be introduced from 2021.The Class 230 DMUs have been converted from London Underground D78 metro stock, originally manufactured by Metro Cammell in 1980. The aluminium bodyshells have been retained, but the interiors have been extensively refurbished. Power is supplied by two underfloor genset modules on each vehicle, which incorporate a 3·2 litre Ford Duratec diesel engine. The traction control system developed by Strukton Rail uses IGBT choppers, with the traction control electronics and battery charger integrated in one box. A state-of-the-art remote condition monitoring system is also fitted. Maximum speed is 97 km/h.Vivarail claims that the fuel consumption is roughly half that of a Class 14X Pacer diesel multiple-unit. This is supported by the use of stop-start technology, which sees the engines shut down when not needed, such as at stations or when stabled, although one engine will remain operational for battery charging. The designers say that having four separate engine modules would enable a train to operate at near full power even if one engine should fail. The design of the traction package allows the trains to be maintained locally, rather than needing to return to a depot. Individual engine modules can be exchanged in 10 min with just three operations: disconnecting the fuel and air hoses; unhooking the safety catches and lifting out the module using a pallet truck. Current estimates are that a full engine change would only be needed every 250 000 to 300 000 km.LNR Customer Experience Director Jonny Wiseman said the Class 230 was ‘a fantastic addition to our fleet’, noting that ‘there has been a lot of anticipation for the introduction of the D-Trains from staff, commuters and the local community, and we hope that our passengers find them comfortable and welcoming to travel on. These trains are unrecognisable from their former life on the Underground; Vivarail has created a modern and comfortable train, ideal for this route.’Describing the start of passenger service as ‘a very proud day for all at Vivarail’, CEO Adrian Shooter explained that ‘our design and engineering work has been focused on ensuring the Marston Vale trains are of the quality and standard that passengers deserve. Our partners at London Northwestern Railway have worked tirelessly with us to bring these trains into service and I thank them for all the support and faith they have shown in us as we have grown from a start-up business into a full train manufacturer in such a short space of time.’The D-Trains feature a modified LNR livery, together with artwork from local artist Alisha Miller to be displayed inside each of the three units.Read more about the West Midlands Trains franchise in the May 2019 issue of Railway Gazette International magazine.last_img read more

Health sector urged to help prevent violence against women

first_img Share Share Sharing is caring! Tweet NewsRegional Health sector urged to help prevent violence against women by: – March 9, 2013center_img PAHO Director, Dr. Carissa F. EtienneThe Pan American Health Organization’s director, Dr. Carissa Etienne has called on the health sector to redouble its efforts in primary prevention, identification of abuse and care for women who suffer violence in any form. “Violence against women is a public health problem and a violation of women’s rights,” Dr. Etienne said in her address on the observance of International Women’s Day.She noted that the health sector has a critical role to play in breaking the cycle of violence. “Health services and health personnel can identify cases of abuse early and respond with quality, confidential care that can reduce harm and improve access to services needed for a violence-free life”.The health sector, she said, can contribute to the prevention of violent acts against women through health education that promotes gender equality and respect the different needs of women and men.Under the slogan “A promise is a promise: time for action to end violence against women,” this year’s International Women’s Day (March 8) seeks to strengthen the commitment of the international community to preventing violence against women.A report published by PAHO/WHO in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in January 2013 shows that in 12 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, between 17% and 53% of women surveyed reported having been victims of physical or sexual violence at the hands of an intimate partner. In seven of the countries, at least one in four women reported having suffered from such violence. The health sector—in collaboration with other sectors, including the judicial sector—plays a key role in identifying women at risk of violence, providing emergency medical attention, and helping women and girls get access to protection and support services.Improving the quality of sexual and reproductive health services also contributes to better identification of possible victims of violence and facilitates counseling in areas such as HIV prevention and family planning, among others.Dominica Vibes News 7 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more
