FOR THE BIRDS Vannie is counting on naturalists counting feathered friends By Sarina Trangle firstname.lastname@example.org
wenty groups of birders participated in Van Cortlandt Park Conservancy’s nearly 12-hour birdathon, scouring the park for as many species as possible on Saturday. The conservancy uses the annual event to raise funds by asking birdwatchers to ﬁnd sponsors to donate for each species they spot. Conservancy volunteers kept a list on a whiteboard and by the rainy afternoon, more than 30 birds were scrawled on the whiteboard — from osprey — a predatory raptor with deep brown wings, a curled black beak and talons — to the common pigeon. While experienced birders stalked into the marshes alone, novice birdwatchers took advantage of guided tours. Earnestine and John Allun, a couple from White Plains, decided to sign up on a whim. They trailed behind Margot Perron, the conservancy president, as she pointed out mallard ducks ﬂoating on the pond, a cardinal digging for worms beneath trees and a red-winged blackbird ﬂuttering above the marsh. “We’ve been getting interested in birds since we set up a birdfeeder in the backyard with our grandkids,” said Ms. Allun. “This was really a nice area.” Ms. Perron said it would take a few weeks for participants to collect their pledges and for the conservancy to announce a the name of the birder with the most sightings. For a checklist of all the avian varieties that visit the park, see page B2.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. — Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg, 1863

B4 - THE RIVERDALE PRESS - Thursday, May 23, 2013
Home of the week Sean Trebach I Trebach Realty, Inc.
Two eras, two architects, one beautiful house
n 2005, when the owners of this four bedroom, four-and-a-half bath, stucco-andstone Tudor Revival house decided to give it a top to bottom renovation, they looked for an architect who would be able to create a seamless blend of traditional elegance and modern amenities while respecting its original design â€” done by Riverdaleâ€™s legendary architect Dwight James Baum in 1926. It should come as no surprise that they chose another Riverdalian, Steven Byrns of BKSK Architects, the areaâ€™s preeminent interpreter of the Fieldston Historic Districtâ€™s traditional styles. He preser ved many of the houseâ€™s unique details while adding modern touches of his own. Features include an elegant center hall, a spacious living room with wood-burning ďŹ replace and glass doors to a ďŹ‚agstone sun deck
and a formal dining room with built-in corner cupboards. The kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, maple cabinets and a bright breakfast area. The master suite features a contemporary master bathroom and generous California closets â€” and the ďŹ nished basement has a very well equipped ďŹ tness center. Amenities include two-zone central air-conditioning, a monitored security system, a 77-by88-foot lot landscaped by Judy Mills-Johnson, a lawn sprinkler system, a private four-car driveway and an attached one-car garage. According to Sean Trebach of Trebach Realty, Inc. the property is listed at $2,195,000. Annual taxes are approximately $12,490 and the Fieldston Property Owners Association charges annual dues, as well.
Clockwise from top: The house is nestled on a hilltop. The kitchen includes modern appliances. Light ďŹ‚oods the dining room. The living room is spacious. Note: Each weekâ€™s featured home is chosen at random from among houses and apartments offered by Riverdale Press advertisers. The opinions expressed are those of the advertiser and not The Riverdale Press news department. For further information, write to advertising@ riverdalepress.com.

The best homemade strawberry ices By Danielle Rehfeld email@example.com The other day I went to the market around the corner from my apartment. The strawberries were on sale for $1.99 a pound. I promptly walked home with seven packages. A box of strawberries for the same price as a packet of gum, I thought. What a steal! As I unloaded them into my fridge, I imagined myself drinking a smoothie every morning for the next 30 days and what other fun things I could do with this bounty. I decided to try my hand at strawberry ﬂavored ices. I crushed the berries well with my hands, leaving all the seeds and pulp in the mixture. Why take out what makes a strawberry a strawberry? I dissolved some sugar and water in a pot along with half the berries and when the mixture began to simmer, I pulled it off the stove, let it cool and mixed with other berries. Next, I added some lemon juice to balance out the sweet-
ness and into the freezer it went for a couple of hours. At ﬁrst, I tried scraping the surface of the ices as if it were a granita but the pulp made it challenging. When the ices melted slightly, the entire rectangle loosened and moved about in it’s own container. I was frustrated that I wasn’t quite getting the same texture as my other granitas. Was I going to have to throw this all away or sit around getting brain freeze sucking on blocks of strawberry ice? Then, I had an epiphany. Flip it! And there it was. The shiny, shocking crystalline surface of the bottom side of a Marino’s ice cup. Suddenly I was transported to being 6 years old, playing in the park behind Skyview, where I grew up. My lips were bright red and my frayed little jean shorts were a little sticky from the ices dripping off my ﬂat, miniature wooden spoon. The ice cream truck’s repetitive jingle was the soundtrack to summers spent sitting by the monkey bars, scraping away until the sun’s heat melted my ices enough to allow me to
wedge that little spoon between the yellow paper cup and little block of red ice, so that I could ﬂip it and ﬁnally get to the sugary goodness. This recipe represents the closest, most natural version of my favorite summertime treat. I’ve made this a few times now for kids (of all ages) and they go wild. HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY ICES Serves 6 to 8. 2 1 1 1
-1/2 lbs. strawberries* Cup sugar Cup water lemon, seeded and squeezed
Stem the strawberries and place in a bowl. Crush them to a pulp in your hands** and extract as much juice as possible. Place half the strawberries in a pot with the sugar and water. Heat over medium and stir until the sugar dissolves and syrup turns bright red. Combine with the uncooked strawberries and add lemon juice as needed to balance out the sweetness.
Place in a Pyrex dish or large rectangular casserole. Freeze for 2 hours and use a fork to scrape the surface of the ices. Freeze another 2 hours and scrape again (You may loosen the mixture and ﬂip it over to access the icy crystals below the strawberry pulp. This will be easier to scrape.) For a creamier, sorbet-like texture, quickly puree the ices in small batches in a blender and return to the freezer for an hour before serving. Serve alone or with fresh berries. Cook’s Notes: *Depending on the season, ripeness and batch of strawberries, the sweetness and overall ﬂavor of the berry will affect the outcome of the ices. Use the freshest, most ﬂavorful berries you can ﬁnd. Use the lemon juice to balance out the sweetness of the ices. **A neater way to do this is to place the berries in a Ziploc bag, let out the air and seal. Mash well and continue as directed. Also a fun cooking activity to do with the kids!

5 things to know about NYC charter schools What are charter schools?
How do they operate?
Where do they fit in the bigger picture?
Charter schools are free public schools open to all students.They have a 5-year contract with a NYS authorizer, and if they don’t perform well they are closed.
Charter schools are independent of the NYC Department of Education. This gives them freedom to use new teaching approaches, and even have longer school days and school years.
It’s all about choice. NYC operates a “portfolio system” of public schools. This includes magnet schools, zoned and non-zoned district schools, and charter schools.
How long have they been around?
How do you apply?
The first charter school in New York City opened in 1999. Fourteen years later, there are 183 charter schools located in all five boroughs.
It’s easy. There is likely a charter school in your community, and you can apply to more than one school at once online.
