Gaynor noncompliant with deposition demands
Court documents show that on Feb. 25, alleged sexual abuser Edwin Gaynor indicated that he would not show to up be deposed by counsel this month. A court ruling may compel his testimony.

Coronvirus cases grow; Containment zone set up in New Rochelle As of press time on March Wednesday, March 11, there were 13 new confirmed positive cases of the novel coronavirus in Westchester County, bringing the total count to 212 in New York. At his daily press briefing, Gov. Andrew Cuomo offered an update of the virus throughout the state, which has continued to grow leading to the second most confirmed cases of any state, behind only Washington, which has reported 279 cases. Cuomo noted that there have been 24 deaths in Washington
as opposed to zero in New York. He added that of the 212 positive coronavirus cases, only 32 are currently hospitalized. Among the latest confirmed cases in Westchester was a lawyer who practiced at the Westchester County Courthouse in White Plains, leading to the closure of six courtrooms for sanitizing. Cuomo said that employees and others that may have had contact with the attorney have entered a precautionary quarantine. The virus was first found in the county after a New Rochelle man
was diagnosed with it. The man, who is in his 50s with an underlying respiratory illness, remains in critical condition in a hospital in Manhattan after first being seen at New York-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville. That case led to a clustering of confirmed cases in the area surrounding his residence, ultimately leading Cuomo to setup a containment zone, beginning on Thursday, March 12, for portions of the city of New Rochelle as well as sections of Eastchester and Tuckahoe considered the
highest impacted areas of the region. The containment zone will continue the recent the closures of schools, houses of worship and other large gathering facilities. During this two-week period, culminating on March 25, the National Guard will be deployed to the area in an effort to aid in a full-scale cleaning and other community support efforts. A state Health Department command post and Emergency Operations Center has been setup in VIRUS continued on page 6
After accused sexual abuser Edwin “Ted” Gaynor announced his intentions to skip a court-ordered deposition last month, a March 9 ruling by state Supreme Court Associate Justice Steven M. Jaeger could put Gaynor’s testimony back on the table. Jaeger’s decision gives Gaynor, 84, until March 17 to show cause as to why he should not be compelled to give testimony in his own defense, signaling the latest chapter in the ongoing abuse case against the Ossining resident. Gaynor is the defendant in a lawsuit pursued under New York State’s Child’s Victim Act that alleges the former teacher and coach at Scarsdale’s Immaculate Heart of Mary Church abused 15 victims over the course of his decades-long employment at various schools operating under the purview of the Archdiocese of New York. Both IHM and the Archdiocese are also named as defendants in the suit. On Feb. 14, Jaeger denied a motion by Gaynor’s co-defendants that claimed the former teacher was not mentally competent to speak on his own behalf, and ruled that his deposition was to take place no later than March 27. However, on Feb. 25, Gaynor wrote a letter to the law offices of Lowey Dannenberg, P.C—which
is representing the plaintiffs— stating that his various physical ailments will prevent him from complying with the judge’s order. “In the last 22 days, I have needed an average of more than 18 hours a day/night in bed . . . I have had to neglect some very important things and my apartment is a mess because of my lack of time,” Gaynor wrote. “I want to respond to each accusation, but as you know I’m having trouble keeping up with that. However, I’m the only one who is able to do it.” Gaynor previously admitted to molesting two of the defendants in similar hand-written letters to the law firm but denied several other charges. Attorneys for the plaintiffs petitioned the court on March 6, writing that “Defendant Gaynor’s February 25 letter further supports Plaintiff’s claim that Gaynor has no intention of appearing for his duly noted deposition and that an order compelling him to appear is necessary and/or an order holding Gaynor in contempt.” Jaeger’s order to compel Gaynor’s deposition stated that if the defendant is unable to provide the court with substantial evidence of his inability to provide testimony by March 17, failure to appear for a subsequent March 26 deposition could result in Gaynor being held in contempt of court.

Westchester police seize heroin on the Hutch
Westchester County police arrested two Connecticut men and seized 1,250 envelopes of heroin following a traffic stop on Monday on the Hutchinson River Parkway in New Rochelle.
Westchester County police arrested two Connecticut men and seized 1,250 envelopes of heroin following a traffic stop Monday, March 9, on the Hutchinson River Parkway in New Rochelle. The suspects were held overnight at county police headquarters in Hawthorne and were arraigned on March 10 in New Rochelle City Court. The incident began about noon when an officer stopped a car near North Avenue for a traffic violation. The driver initially pulled
over but then drove away as officers were speaking with him. As the vehicle fled, officers observed an object being thrown out of the car. The vehicle was subsequently forced to a stop near the Wilmot Road exit. Following subsequent investigation, officers recovered 1,250 glassine envelopes of heroin packaged for individual sale. The heroin has an estimated street value of at least $12,500. Jahmar Palma, 30, and Michael Banks, 29, both of Norwalk, Con-
necticut, were each charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the third degree with Intent to Sell and Tampering With Evidence, felonies. Palma, who was the driver, was additionally charged with Fleeing an Officer in a Motor Vehicle and Reckless Driving, misdemeanors. “I am proud of the great work our officers do each day to keep illegal drugs off our streets and to keep the County safe,” Commissioner Thomas Gleason said.

Legislators remind residents of earned sick leave As noted in a recent editorial in The New York Times, health experts are explaining one of the best ways to fight the spread of COVID-19 is the utilization of earned sick leave. Workers in Westchester County should be aware that effective April 10, 2019, most employees in in the county became entitled to earned sick leave, under a law passed by the Board of Legislators in October 2018 and signed by County Executive George Latimer. “Staying home when you’re sick is one of the most important steps people can take to prevent
the spread of infectious diseases,” said county Legislator Catherine Borgia, the law’s chief sponsor. “This is especially important if you work with vulnerable populations like older people, children or people with health issues. Our earned sick leave law puts workers in position to do just that if necessary.” “With this law, most workers in Westchester have the opportunity to earn sick leave. We just want to remind people that this resource is available to them if they need to take advantage of it,” said Board of Legislators Chairman Ben Boykin.
Beginning on July 10, 2019 (or on the date of first employment, if hired after July 10, 2019), employees began earning one hour of sick leave for every 30 hours worked. Some employees at will are entitled to paid sick leave. Employees can use sick leave to access medical or mental health diagnosis, treatment or preventative care for themselves or a family member. For more information on earned sick leave, check out the county’s website at humanrights.westchestergov.com/resources/earned-sick-leave-law. (Submitted)

Latimer, Bramson eat lunch in Wykagyl lStanding in solidarity with the people of New Rochelle, Westchester County Executive George Latimer and New Rochelle Mayor
Noam Bramson visited businesses in the Wykagyl part of the city on Thursday, March 5. “We stand with you New Ro-
chelle. We must remember who we are—the County is a wonderful tapestry of people from many different backgrounds, religions
and languages,” Latimer said. “Events like this one can cause stress and anxiety which can lead to biases against those of specific ethnicities or countries of origin. Please remember that we are all co-workers, neighbors, school-
mates, fellow community members, and be kind to one another.” Bramson added, “This is a moment for our entire community to come together, and especially to lift up the residents and businesses that are bearing the heavi-
est burdens. I am proud to support the Wykagyl neighborhood as a shopper, diner, and friend and encourage others in our city and region to demonstrate their own support and confidence.” (Submitted)

County calls to open road above Kensico Dam Two decades after it was closed following 9/11, Westchester County Executive George Latimer is calling to reopen Kensico Dam Road for public use.
“We recognize that this road goes across a dam that holds back thousands of gallons of water, and we understand that it is a very important dam to secure
for the health and safety of hundreds of thousands of Westchester County residents,” Latimer said. “But I also know that all across America, roads of impor-
tance and bridges that connect one side of a place to another, in some fashion, those bridges are also being secured in a way that still allows for their use.” The opening of this road will provide long overdue traffic relief to the residents and busi-

nesses of the town of Mount Pleasant, the town of North Castle and the city of White Plains. In a letter to the New York City Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Vincent Sapienza, Latimer wrote “We know that protection
of the lives of our residents is of paramount importance. We do not believe that protection would be compromised by limited re-opening of the roadway, under terms agreeable to all parties.” To mitigate any security concerns regarding the integrity of the dam, the county has comprised a list of safety measures that would remain in place. These measures include: • Continued closure of Kensico Dam Road during nighttime hours; • Prohibition of ‘Oversized’ vehicles; • Limited hours of operation, targeted toward rush hour traffic; and • Other specific elements of upgrade protection. “I feel that this is a necessity for emergency services purposes,” county Legislator Margaret Cunzio said. “As we know, when we are dealing with emergency services, time is of the essence. And in my mind, having the capacity to have fire departments and emergency services have access to this road, would not only be invaluable but it could also save a life.” (Submitted)

New Rochelle as well as a satellite testing facility in partnership with Northwell Health. “This number will continue to grow every day,” the governor said. “The more tests we conduct the more positive tests we will get… Testing happens when we find a person who is positive and ask them who they came in contact with. We then test that chain. “That’s where these tests come from and we’re looking for the positives. It says we’re successfully tracking the chain. These numbers will continue to go up dramatically.” Cuomo noted that he had discussions with 28 private labs that will soon begin conducting tests for the coronavirus, allowing the state to test hundreds daily. He said that China conducted approximately 200,000 tests daily, while South Korea conducted 15,000 tests daily, but the U.S. has only tested 5,000 during the entire health crisis. “New York State is taking matters into its own hands. We’re going to start contracting with private labs to increase our testing capacity,” he said. “We informed those labs that they should get up and running and start moving forward with testing. There are still some complexities that the FDA needs to sign off on, and that’s complicating the situation. In closing his conference, Cuomo said that no decisions have been made about officially banning large gatherings of people, similar to what has happened in San Francisco and Washington. “We don’t want to shut down society, because that’s massively disrupting to all parties,” he said as different states have started to employ regulations in an effort to help contain the spread of the virus. “But at the same time, you have to be concerned about this public health crisis. It’s a delicate balancing act.” (Submitted)

The New 60 is a weekly look about what it’s like to be in your 60’s in today’s world: adult children living at home, downsizing (jobs and houses), finding old friends on Facebook and deciphering text-speak. It’s a Brave New World of second homes, second careers and second marriages…and finding out after a lifetime of milkshakes and ice cream that you’re suddenly lactose-intolerant. The New 60 is created by two local 60-plus Westchester residents, John Colquhoun of Bronxville and Andy Landorf, who hails from Tarrytown. The duo are long-time advertising creatives and this, as the saying goes, is their Act II. Even though it features folks in their 60’s, if you know someone who is 60, have a parent who’s 60 or just generally enjoy watching funny things happen to other people, you’ll find something to relate to here—you may even find yourself saying, “Hey, that happened to me!” To read more of the New 60, visit their website at thenew60comic.com.

The Review, in collaboration with ArtsWestchester, offers a rundown of art-related events throughout Westchester County. You can find our Arts in the Area page each month.
Must-see public art: Mount Vernon An intricate lace-like pattern of black metal now replaces the picket fencing on a century-old bridge in the city of Mount Vernon. The new public artwork by artist Frances Gallardo features 12 sculpture panels that were recently installed on either side of the 14th Street Bridge, linking First and South Boyd streets. It’s the first in a series of new public artworks in the city. Six overhead bridges along the New Haven line train tracks in the city are being rebuilt, and each will include one of these site-specific artworks commissioned by MTA Arts & Design. Gallardo’s sculpture reflects its surroundings by embracing the city’s past, and intentionally incorporates that history into her piece. To create the work, she hand-cut pieces of vintage maps, including blueprints from Mount Vernon’s original grid structure, and combined them to produce a new abstract design. This was turned into digital files, which were used to cut the black powder-coated aluminum panels. Other bridges to be rebuilt are located at 6th Avenue, 10th Avenue, 3rd Avenue, Fulton Avenue and South Street. Artworks will include themes like music, local history and geography, human and natural migration, and more. -Mary Alice Franklin
A passport to opportunity “I’ll rise up, and I’ll do it a thousand times again for you.” These are the lyrics—from Andra Day’s Rise Up—that describe the White Plains Youth Bureau, WPYB, for many of its former participants. The song, which was voted as the Bureau’s 50th anniversary anthem, is indicative of the dedication that WPYB and its attendees have for one another. The Bureau fulfills its mission of helping its youth to grow into successful adults, and those adults then often give back to that same community. From a single desk at City Hall, the WPYB has grown into a dynamic city agency that serves 2,000 kids each day, from White Plains public schools, housing authority centers and more, with more than 60 programs throughout the year. Many of these former WPYB attendees credit the Bureau for inspiring and preparing them for their professional careers. A call for 50 stories about participants whose lives have been impacted by WPYB’s programs instead yielded 104 personal anecdotes. There was Dante Hudson, chief programs officer at White Plains YMCA, whose passion for working with children was ignited during the camp counselor job
he got through WPYB. Then there was Delphine T. Burton, who credits WPYB’s programs as the foundation that helped shape her path toward founding her own nonprofit. The Bureau also helped Jessica McKenzie get a job, which she calls the “springboard that launched (her) professional career.” Now director of internal and executive communications at PepsiCo Beverages North America, McKenzie spearheaded “Pathway to Leadership,” a full-day mentoring workshop for the Bureau’s current youth. “The Youth Bureau is like a passport, opening up opportunities and experiences to youths in White Plains,” explained Friends of WPYB board member Vincere N. Japal. Participants demonstrate increased SAT scores, greater leadership skills, employment retention and increased confidence in theatrical and creative expression. WPYB celebrated its 50 years with a concert at White Plains Performing Arts Center on March 7, with performances from Broadway performer Alton Fitzgerald White, ballet dancer Ingrid Silva and more. Its gala on Oct. 15 will raise funds for its youth. For more info, visit whiteplainsyouthbureau.org. -Mary Alice Franklin
Pasolini’s message continues to resonate The work of Pier Paolo Pasolini was both radical and forward-thinking in its time—and arguably, it is as relevant today as it was 50 years ago. Over the years, during which the Neuberger Museum of Art conceived its Pier Paolo Pasolini: Subversive Prophet exhibition, it became increasingly “timely,” according to Museum Director Tracy Fitzpatrick. The show, on view through May 31, originally intended to fill in the curatorial blanks of past exhibitions of Pasolini’s interdisciplinary works, has taken on new meaning in today’s complex political world. Though Pasolini is one of Italy’s most famous and controversial filmmakers, his work still needs an introduction for many Americans, especially considering his influence on contemporary artists of the Americas. His films explore issues of class and taboo behaviors while striking a delicate balance between elegant cinematography and jarring exposition. As an outspoken Communist and openly man in mid-century Italy, Pasolini faced a great deal of adversity. However, by leaning into satire and sym-
bolism, Pasolini delivered contentious indictments of systemic issues like misogyny, class inequality and homophobia that are still pressing issues today. The show’s curator Patrice Giasson explains that “one of the challenges of this exhibition was reckoning with how to make such a controversial, subversive and complex figure, accessible to people.” The show navigates this task by providing a totality of creative context, making it easier for the audience to be able to simply walk into the world of Pasolini. The multimedia exhibition is unique in its inclusion of multiple aspects of the artist’s work – projected screenings of Pasolini’s films, creative presentations of prose, visual artwork and film costumes made by renowned Italian designer Pietro Farani. Between the poems carefully culled from Pasolini’s archive of thousands to the opulent costumes that have never been shown in the United States, the exhibition provides an exclusive opportunity to experience Pasolini through the lens of his many passions. The exhibit also includes a section dedicated to contemporary artists of the Americas whose works were influenced by, and pay homage to, Pasolini. Two of the featured creators are New York-based Chilean artist, architect and filmmaker Alfredo Jaar, and the late Uruguayan artist Antonio Frasconi, a former Purchase College professor. Their original works include the short film “The Ashes of Pasolini” (2009), which provides a cinematic eulogy to Pasolini, as well as a fake sheet of stamps that raise the question of why such a prominent figure has never been nationally honored in Italy. The pieces are also complemented by a collection of photos taken during Pasolini’s 1966 visit to New York. Pasolini pulled from his own experiences, however the themes are essentially humanist in nature and apply to much more than just the dynamics of his time and place. Said Giasson: “I wanted to give American audiences a full opportunity to experience Pasolini the same way Europe and other parts of the world have.” Pasolini spoke with the many heads of his craft to push back against the rising tide of post-war consumerism that he believed was corrosive to humanity. In this exhibition, these separate but thematically unified facets of his craft are amplified to echo through the decades and tell the story of a tireless creative on a mission to liberate the minds of his audience.

A new take on the group show The group show is the backbone of the art world. From the Paris Salon of the 18th century, to the Biennials and art fairs of the 21st century, artists have benefitted from being part of a broader conversation about art and of being shown alongside their peers. Sometimes these ensemble casts are juried; sometimes curated. Cuts are made to fit a space or to hone a theme. ArtsWestchester’s exhibition program is built on curated thematic group shows, featuring Hudson Valley region artists whose works advance thoughtfulness about topics that resonate within the community. In recent years, the organization has explored themes such as the contemporary immigrant experience, the construction of gender identity, life
in the age of data, and the current state of voting rights in America. For many of these projects, ArtsWestchester’s curatorial department circulates calls for submissions or nominations, seeking uncovered existing works and visions for new works. Metropolis Sunrise is a monumental 10,000 square foot outdoor textile sculpture constructed by many hands. It will be mounted on ArtsWestchester’s façade beginning in May. “At first glance, it is a departure from our usual exhibition model,” said Deputy Director Kathleen Reckling. “But in reality, it is a group show on the grandest, most democratic scale.” Led by artist Amanda Browder, it is a collective community powered work. “Everybody who comes to the project is part of the piece. It’s not just The Amanda Browder Show,” Browder said. Every person who has a hand in realizing the work—whether it’s by donating fabric or dollars, or by volunteering their time at a sewing day—joins Browder on the roster of exhibiting artists. With sewing days in Pelham, Yonkers, Scarsdale, Hartsdale, White Plains, Rye and Katonah still to come this month, there are more opportunities to join this community powered group exhibition. All artists welcome.
Sidra Bell awarded Dance/NYC grant Westchester dancer Sidra Bell’s company, Sidra Bell Dance New York, was among the 25 recipients of this year’s Dance Advancement Fund, administered by Dance/NYC. More than 100 dance groups from the metropolitan New York City area applied for the two-year general support award. Bell was among those who fit the strict criteria, which includes a clear artistic vision and a willingness to share learning with the field. Dance/ NYC “believes the dance ecology must itself be just, equitable and inclusive to meaningfully contribute to the social progress.” As such, the Fund addresses inequitable distribution of resources in the dance field.
Purchase College honors alum Kyle Abraham On March 27, the Performing Arts Center at Purchase College, PAC, will honor one of their own— accomplished choreographer and Purchase alum Kyle Abraham. The MacArthur Fellow is Artistic Director of A.I.M., a dance company that aims to “create an avenue for personal investigation, and expose that on stage.” Abraham, who has cultivated and premiered work at PAC throughout his professional career, has choreographed commissioned works for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Paul Taylor American Modern Dance Company, New York City Ballet and more. The event will also honor PAC Patron Christopher T. Clark and includes a performance by Black Violin.

The veteran Blue Devils quickly proved why they came into Saturday’s game as the six-time defending Class C champs, earning

a decisive 49-22 victory to hoist their seventh-straight Golden Ball. Bela Monteleone led Haldane with 16 points and four rebounds en route to being named the Class C tournament’s most valuable player, but a number of other Blue Devils stepped up as well, including Monteleone’s sister Liv, who scored 11 points, and Shianne Twoguns, who added nine. Angelina Mazzuocculo hit three shots from beyond the arc to lead Tuckahoe with nine points. According to Tuckahoe coach Andrew Colasuonno, the Tigers—who have just one senior on the roster—simply couldn’t compete with Haldane’s biggame experience. “The comfort level of that team really showed,” Colasuonno said. “They played like a team that’s been here before, which they obviously have.” The Tigers matched the Blue Devils early on but began to struggle from the field midway through the second quarter. Before long, the reigning champs were able to open up a 31-9 lead. “Our girls did not have their
best game, that’s for sure,” Colasuonno said. “That’s not to take anything away from Haldane. They’re a great team and they did a great job.” Despite the season-ending loss, Colasuonno believes the experience of playing at the County Center was an important one for his team. The Tigers will graduate just one key player in Sabrina Rocco but will otherwise come into next season with a better understanding of what it takes to succeed at Section I’s highest level. “I think coming into the semifinal game, they didn’t know what to expect, but they rose to the occasion in that game,” he said. “Today they played no-quit basketball, but unfortunately, that inexperience showed.” With the win, Haldane will move onto the regional semifinals, where they will take on Millbrook on March 11, after press time. The game was originally supposed to take place on Tuesday at Horace Greeley High School, but coronavirus fears prompted the postponement of the March 10 schedule. CONTACT: email@example.com
