DEC orders Taylor’s Lane to undergo additional testing By JAMES PERO Staff Writer A remediation project on Taylor’s Lane in the village of Mamaroneck will undergo further tests after a statewide mandate from the Department of Environmental Conservation to further analyze groundwater safety. As part of the new tests— which were authorized at a village Board of Trustees meeting in late June—the village’s hired

consultant, Zion Environmental, will look for two toxic substances: 1,4 dioxane, Per-, and polufluorolalkyl, which have been linked to cancer. In total, the additional tests will cost $13,250, a sum that will be deducted from the village’s contingency budget. According to a memo sent to the board by Village Manager Robert Yamuder, the testing was not outlined in the most recent village budget despite previous analysis of the site dating back to 2016. Though the state started requiring groundwater testing for certain substances at all superfund sites across New York
in 2017, the village was unaware that it needed testing before it passed the 2017-2018 fiscal year budget, according to Assistant Village Manager Dan Sarnoff. In fact, Sarnoff said, the village didn’t become aware of the necessity for the additional testing until after hearing from its consultants and DEC. Taylor’s Lane has been capped for about 30 years, after the property—a former leaf composting site—was found to be containing hazardous chemicals that had been illegally dumped there. Since 2016, the village has slated the former composting
site for a number of potential uses, including a dog park, public pathways or sports fields, though, according to Sarnoff, it’s too early to tell whether those uses will be approved by the DEC due to outstanding site analysis. Because of its classification as a hazardous site, the village is prohibited from building any structures on the central part of the 7-acre property due to concerns about the capped area that may still contain toxic waste. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, has shown increased TESTING continued on page 8
In an effort to curb the use of plastic bags, the town of Mamaroneck will again consider adopting a plastic bag fee after opposition killed an outright ban in 2012. The law will look to impose a point-of-sale fee on the use of single-use plastic bags that advocates hope will encourage shoppers to bring their own bags to supermarkets and other retailers. The town first looked into a plastic bag ban in 2012, but received backlash from the Food Industry Alliance of New York State, FIANY, an association that works to protect chain retail stores from laws that could harm their businesses. The group threatened to sue the town if the law was enacted. That local law was eventually tabled by the town and alternative discussions relating to a possible fee were initiated last year. However, since the failed 2012 ban, similar proposals have sprung up throughout the state that includes legislation in Westchester County that would impose a 10 cent fee on plastic grocery bags. Discussed in April of this year, that bill has still not appeared before the county Board of Legislators for a full vote. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, has also been vocal about kicking the distribution of single-use plastic bags to the curb, introducing a potential statewide ban on their use. “The blight of plastic bags takes a devastating toll on our streets, our water and our natural resources, and we need to take action to protect our en-
vironment,” Cuomo said in an April statement. “As the old proverb goes: ‘We did not inherit the earth, we are merely borrowing it from our children,’ and with this action we are helping to leave a stronger, cleaner and greener New York for all.” According to the Environmental Protection Agency, plastic bags often end up clogging storm drains or making their way into protected bodies of water and endangering the welfare of sea animals. According to Waste Management, a recycling and waste company,, in the U.S. alone, consumers use about 10 billion bags per year and in the process 12 million barrels of oil—petroleum is a key ingredient in manufacturing plastics. According to Town Supervisor, Nancy Seligson, the proposed fee, if approved, would seek to curb usage and clean up Mamaroneck’s waterways. “Single use plastic has become a major problem in terms of the amount that is being produced and used in the world,” she said. “They end up as a FEE continued on page 10

State devotes millions to greener public transit
New York State will give away $5 million in grants to proposals that make public transit greener and more efficient. Photo courtesy Flickr.com
New York State will send down $5 million to incentivize greener public transit systems through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. The grants will be available to transit projects around the state who submit proposals to NYSERDA that effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve operations, striving towards a benchmark set by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, to decrease greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent by 2030. “These projects are a critical component for advancing solutions to some of our most pressing transportation efficiency and operations challenges while improving ridership experiences
for New Yorkers,” said Alicia Barton, president of NYSERDA. Grant money will be pulled from a $5 billion Clean Energy Fund started by Cuomo in 2016 to fund clean energy initiatives across the state over the next 10 years. More than $18 million of funding will be made available by 2020, according to NYSERDA. In addition to the grants, the state also recently rolled out a rebate program dubbed “Drive Clean” that gives New York residents rebates on a new or leased electric car up to $2,000. According to NYSERDA, more than $7.5 million has already been doled out to residents taking advantage of the subsidies. In Westchester County, re-
newable energy has become more prevalent, namely through initiatives like Westchester Power—the state’s first community choice aggregation program— which offer consumers the option to derive 100 percent of their energy from renewable sources. Within the county, municipalities like the town of Mamaroneck have made strides in introducing clean energy standards and initiatives. In 2016, the town was awarded an official climate smart designation for using software to track and control emissions of municipal buildings, replacing all of its lighting with energy efficient LEDs and using biofuel to power its sanitation trucks.
Pace professor wins national service award On Thursday, June 28, Pace University Criminal Justice Professor Dr. Kim Collica-Cox won a prestigious national Jefferson Award for outstanding public service, related to her innovative animal-assisted therapy program which helps to heal mothers incarcerated at the Westchester County Jail. Developed in partnership with the county Department of Correction and non-profit The Good Dog Foundation, the “Parenting, Prison and Pups” pairs incarcerated mothers with trained therapy dogs to teach them parenting skills as part of their return home after release. Professor Collica-Cox won the award over 75 other nominees nationwide, cheered on at the ceremony by her daughters Antoinette, 24, and Annalise, 6. Parenting, Prison and Pups is one of 22-plus inmate recovery programs in place at the Westchester County Jail. Nationally, it is the first program of its kind to incorporate animal-assisted therapy into a structured classroom curriculum and instills trust in female inmates, many of whom have experienced prior trauma and violence or suffer from mental health issues and addiction. In working with therapy dogs, the program enhances their parenting skills in an effort to return them to their families and to reduce intergenerational incarceration. The Jefferson Awards Foun-
dation was created in 1972 by Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis and other members of public service. The Foundation partners nationally with groups such as the NFL, Yale University, the Hispanic Heritage Foundation and the U.S. Conference of Mayors in an effort to foster meaningful public service for underserved populations and youth. In addition to Collica-Cox, the Jefferson Foundation honored Super Bowl Champion Chris Long, who donated his entire 2018 salary to underserved youth, billionaire philanthropist Elaine Wynn, and Pia Phillips and Abbie Nelson, teenagers who founded Pab’s Packs, an organization which custom designs backpacks for seriously ill children. “Professor Collica-Cox’s receipt of this prestigious award confirms her commitment to ensuring that incarcerated mothers are provided with transferable skills that are critical for a safe and productive reunification with their families,” Joseph Spano, commissioner of the Department of Corrections. “ Programs like Parenting, Prison and Pups have resulted in a steady decline in our inmate population—to the lowest level since 1986. This benefit is two-fold: a lower inmate population results in a safer working environment for staff, while also allowing us to provide more programming opportunities for those individuals who are in custody.”
Nira Herrmann, dean of the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences at Pace, said, “Professor Collica-Cox truly epitomizes the goals of the Jefferson Award: Not only is she fully engaged in supporting an often-forgotten community of incarcerated women, but she has also engaged Pace University students in life-changing experiences with this community. Her personal commitment is expanding outward through her mentoring of students, to touch more and more lives in positive and uplifting ways.” (Submitted)

‘Rockwood Hall—Inside and Out’ Learn about Westchester’s lost treasure. Developed by William A. Rockefeller in 1884, his estate “Rockwood Hall” in Mount Pleasant was declared “the second most impressive home in America.” Vanderbilt’s “Biltmore” in North Carolina was the first. The mansion itself contained 200 rooms and no expense was spared in its design, construction and furnishings. Spanning nearly 1,000 acres along the Hudson River, equal precision was put to the design of the estate landscape, gardens, out buildings and carriage trails. However, by 1941 it would all be gone. Shrouded in mystery, the remaining foundation and terraced staircases only adds to the allure and intrigue for the many that visit what is now “Rockwood Hall Park.” Paul Barrett, a local historian and researcher, invites us on a tour of this once commanding

Playland’s North Boardwalk reopens Visitors to Playland Park in Rye will once again enjoy magnificent views of Long Island Sound from the 700-foot long North Boardwalk, now that a capital replacement project has been completed, Westchester County Executive George Latimer announced. During a July 3 ribbon cutting ceremony, Latimer was joined by County Parks Commissioner
Kathy O’Connor, Commissioner of the Department of Public Works Hugh Greechan and Deputy Parks Commissioner Peter Tartaglia, to officially open the boardwalk. “I am pleased to welcome Westchester residents back to this very special section of Playland Park, which had been closed after [Hurricane] Sandy demolished the existing board-

walk in 2012,” Latimer said. “It’s been a long time coming, but the way this new boardwalk is built, it will be here for a very, very long time to come.” Playland’s shoreline sustained grave damage during Hurricane Sandy on Oct. 29, 2012, with winds and tidal surges greatly damaging the South Boardwalk, and completely demolishing and washing away the North Boardwalk. The replaced boardwalk is built with 500-year storm resistant materials. The boardwalk has been upgraded with steel piles replacing the former wooden ones, and a concrete substructure and platform to further stand up to the elements. Like the park’s South Boardwalk, which was repaired and reopened in 2013, the new boardwalk’s decking is made of Brazilian hardwood known as Ipe, which can last more than 30 years without warping and splintering. New wrought-iron fencing on both the water’s edge and the park side of the walkway has been installed, along with brandnew, historically correct benches and lighting to comport with the Park’s Art Deco architecture. The completion of the North

Boardwalk reconstitutes Playland’s scenic Seaside Walk that runs along Long Island Sound and affords beautiful vistas. It is a 3/4-mile path that starts at the South Boardwalk and ends at the North Boardwalk near Playland Lake. The cost of the project was $4.6 million for design and construction.
“The opening of Playland Park in Rye signifies the end of a drawn out and difficult chapter and the beginning of a bright new one,” U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer said. “In November 2012, I toured the damage that was left in the wake of Hurricane Sandy and vowed to bring FEMA funding to Playland Park and all of Westchester County.
I’m overjoyed knowing that today is the day my efforts, combined with countless others, finally comes to fruition.” The North Boardwalk will be open daily. Playland Park, a national historic landmark, is located on Playland Parkway in Rye. More information is available at playlandpark.org. (Submitted)

Westchester Lawmakers and county residents rallied to protest the federal government’s practice of separating immigrant families at the United States and Mexico border. Photos courtesy westchester.gov
Residents and lawmakers continue to protest a change in federal immigration policy that has resulted in the separation of children and young adults caught trying to enter the U.S. illegally, from their parents. In the middle of an historic heat wave, hundreds of Westchester residents gathered in front of the federal courthouse in White Plains to protest President Donald Trump’s decision to separate immigrant children from their parents during the deportation process. Trump has since reversed course, citing that he “didn’t like the sight or feeling of families being separated.” According to the Department of Homeland Security, since May, more than 2,300 children have been separated from their parents after cross-
ing the border into the U.S., sparking national outrage and protest. The June 29 protest in White Plains—one of which also took place in Rockland County— was organized by the coalition, Families Belong Together, which described the practice as inhumane. “The indignation and opposition will only continue to grow if the administration continues with this cruelty of separating families,” said Jess Morales Rocketto, political director of the National Alliance and chair of its immigration campaign. Likewise, County Executive George Latimer, a Democrat, denounced the practice of separating families at the border, calling on the federal government to stop the practice immediately. “Like many Westchester residents I am heartbroken and outraged over the mistreatment of immigrant families at the border—especially the children who are being separated from their parents,” he said. “[Immigrants] are part of the fabric of our home and they deserve to be treated humanely.”
Even before the president’s decision to begin separating families, county lawmakers have taken steps to protect immigrants in Westchester through new legislation. Specifically, in March, lawmakers passed a bill that limits the amount of information the county shares with federal authorities and also prevents county law enforcement officials from asking about immigration status; similar measures have been passed on some local levels within the county. Legislators have also come out in opposition to the inclusions of a question on an upcoming national census that would require participants to divulge their citizenship status. In Westchester County, nearly a quarter of the population is Hispanic or Latino, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. As protests continue to erupt across the country, New York State—along with 16 other states— has sued the federal government over their policy of separating families, claiming that the practice is born out animus toward immigrants. -Reporting by James Pero

Local church makes trip to Dominican Republic By LINNET TSE Contributor In June, members of St. John’s Church in Larchmont made their 12th house-building service trip with Ossining-based not-for-profit organization Bridges to Community. Although Nicaragua has been the group’s usual destination, political unrest in that country led the group to instead visit the Dominican Republic, where Bridges to Community, BTC, also operates. BTC, a community development and service-learning organization that promotes cross-cultural partnerships and sustainable community development, began its work in Nicaragua in 1993 and expanded to the Dominican Republic a little more than five years ago. Over the years, BTC has developed a sustainable and replicable community development program focused on four key areas: housing, health, education and economic development. This year, nine people participated in the St. John’s Family and Friends trip at the end of June. They joined a 26-person contingent from Grace Episcopal Church in Nyack. The 35-person group—27 of whom were high school students—spent an intense four days working alongside community members to build three houses in the very poor mountainous community of Caimonial, 30 minutes from the Haitian border. It was the first time many of the high school students had been exposed to the widespread level of poverty they observed in this rural part of the Dominican Republic, where homes have dirt floors and there is no running wa-

ter. Volunteers were particularly struck by the friendliness of the local people and the joy of the children, despite their poor living conditions and meager prospects. Asked to reflect on how the experience impacted them, many students, including Mamaroneck High School rising junior Luke Swanezy, indicated that they wanted to volunteer more in their local communities, and would be much more comfortable working with Spanish-speaking people despite their limited knowledge of that language. Some commented that being unplugged for the week made them realize the value of spending time talking to friends and getting to know people better. For other students like rising Hackley School junior
Maggie Broaddus, the week-long trip caused them to think more broadly. “The trip was very impactful to me. It made me realize how our society is so different; most people at home put a priority on their own needs instead of building something bigger than their individual selves,” Broaddus said. “I am guilty of this mindset, so I hope to bring back to Larchmont some of the community values they had in the DR… I hope everyone can have the opportunity to experience a trip like this.” 2018 trip participants included: Maggie Broaddus, Kira McCarthy, Megan McCarthy, Hannah Mockenhaupt, Jane Moore, Frank Pierson, Harry Sober, Luke Swanezy and Linnet Tse.

County employees sign July 4 green pledge
Sound Shore Market opens in Larchmont A grand opening of the community oriented Sound Shore Market is scheduled for Wednesday, July 11 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Kane Park. Mayor Lorraine Walsh will be on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5:30 p.m. The market is intended to be a destination for Larchmont and Sound Shore families to shop, dine and have fun while enhancing Larchmont’s image as an attractive, vibrant, shopping, family-friendly village. Prepared foods and provision foods (such as fresh produce, meats, charcuterie, breads) will be offered with rotating vendors. In addition, each week there will be live music and activities from Larchmont businesses to create an engaging
and enjoyable atmosphere. The market takes place every Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Kane Park through the end of October. (Note that the market will end at 6 p.m. beginning in September). “This market is different from others because our objective is to bring more shoppers to Larchmont and to promote local businesses,” says Drew George, founder and Larchmont resident. “That is why there are so many Larchmont vendors here.” George, who also owns FarmEats, a participating vendor at the market, enlisted The Valley Area Network, a non-profit organization that also runs Piermont’s popular “The SOUK”Farm Market to operate the Sound Shore Market.

Westchester County employees are signing on the Green Westchester Pledge, vowing to make the county a bit more environmentally friendly in celebration of the Fourth of July. The Green Westchester Pledge was signed by County Executive George Latimer and his executive team (34 people in total) in the days leading up to July 4. The pledge was created after it was noticed the amount of waste the executive floor was creating by using disposable glasses, coffee stirrers, coffee cups, plates and utensils. As part of the greening of the 9th floor the executive team has purchased reusable glasses, coffee cups, utensils, straws, plates and dish soap. Those who sign the pledge get a certificate to proudly display in their office and a goodie bag (a reusable one) that contained seeds, a reusable New York Liberty water bottle and reusable straws. “The Green Westchester Pledge commits me on a personal level to take steps that are realistic and easy, but steps that will go a long way to helping the environment, said Latimer, sipping
coffee out of a ceramic mug. “We have to move away from doing things that are just convenient and think about the long-term consequences. I’m happy to take this pledge and I encourage others to do the same.” Peter McCartt, director of Energy Conservation and Sustainability, said, “This is the first step to becoming certified by the Green Business Partnership of which we are a proud sponsor and contributing partner. Next up we will be initiating a green procurement policy and doing an energy assessment to create better efficiencies, moving us toward independence from fossil fuels. We here on the 9th floor are looking to do our part for Mother Earth and to lead by example.” Those who sign the pledge promise to minimize their carbon foot print by remembering that they share this patch of land with animals, trees, mountains, rivers, lakes and ponds, making environmentally sound choices to protect those natural resources for future generations. In the pledge they specifically promise to:
• Recycle paper, bottles, cans, plastic, tin, cartons and clear plastic • Avoid using the disposable cups for coffee and water • Use a reusable mug and glassware • Use silverware and limit use of plastic utensils • Use a reusable water bottle • Use reusable straws • Reduce lighting when daylight is sufficient • Turn off my office lights when leaving • Consider the environment before printing—by using a double-sided mode and small margins • Limit personal space heaters • Utilize power strips and turn them off when not being used • Shut down personal computer at night and especially on weekends • Use a reusable shopping bag • Think about the environment when making a purchase • Utilize mass transit or carpool to work and meetings when possible Other companies and individuals who wish to also sign the contract are encouraged to do so.

By JAMES PERO Staff Writer Westchester County’s financial woes are the highlight of a report conducted by the Finance Department released late last month detailing a more than $32 million budget deficit for 2018.Due to the deficit, the county’s Democratic Caucus is pointing to the fiscal practices of former County Executive Rob Astorino, a Republican. “This is an issue that the Board of Legislators and the county executive inherited,” said Board of Legislators Chairman Ben Boykin, a White Plains Democrat. “It is going to take time to work through and stabilize the financial situation of the county.” Specifically, county lawmakers point to several years of no property tax increases under Astorino, calling the results a “structural problem” within the county budget. When Astorino took office in 2010, he pledged to not raise county taxes—a commitment he met in each of his eight years in office, before being ousted by FEE from page 1
litter, and end up in water bodies where it really doesn’t break down.” Seligson added that she is a frequent boater on the Long Island
Democrat George Latimer in the 2017 election.Also looming is an outstanding contract with the county’s largest union, the Civil Service Employees Association, CSEA, which has been expired for seven years. And lawmakers have pumped the brakes on a plan to privatize the Westchester County Airport, an agreement that Astorino had used to inject an additional $15 million in revenue into the 2018 budget. It is unclear if the county will now proceed with such a proposal under the new administration. In May, a financial review of county debt projections for the 2018 fiscal year, forecasted by new Budget Director Lawrence Soule put this year’s budget shortfall at $28.7 million. That number, however, also does not factor in contract negotiations with the CSEA. Soule forecasted that the contract could end up totaling upwards of $40 million. As a result of the deficit— which stems from the county spending more money than it
generates in revenue—lawmakers will likely be forced to look at the prospect of increases property taxes. Meanwhile, the county will be forced to draw on its fund balance to offset budget gaps. For the fiscal years of 2017 and 2018, lawmakers are looking at a 61 percent reduction of fund balance if used to fill in those shortfalls—a reduction that could directly affect the county’s AAA credit rating from Moody’s, a financial service and credit rating agency. That rating affects the county’s ability to borrow and issue bonds at preferential interest rates and could prove increasingly important as the Federal Reserve continues to increase borrowing rates. In the county’s favor, however, has been better than expected sales tax revenue which compared to 2017 revenue is up 6.4 percent so far this year, and can be attributed to increasing gas prices of which the county takes a share through taxes.
Sound—a body of water adjacent to bio diverse wetlands—and often spots plastic bags drifting across the water. While the proposal has yet to be drafted into text, Seligson said it will be mulled over by the town’s
Sustainability Collaborative for the next few months before recommendations are eventually given to the town board who will help draft a law and make changes.

New Westchester program offers revolutionary care Thanks to The New Jewish Home, there’s a revolution going on in Mamaroneck—a revolution in health care for older New Yorkers. At Sarah Neuman, The New Jewish Home’s skilled nursing campus in Westchester,

Pat Vaccaro is a man with three passions: His family, the law firm he was part of for 50 years and the youth of his beloved New Rochelle. Vaccaro founded the New Rochelle Basketball Association, NRBA, more than five years ago. Its motto is “Helping Kids Succeed.” Now that Vaccaro has retired from his second passion, The Jackson Lewis Law Firm, he and his small committee including Andy Peterson, his partner and co-founder, are dedicated to funding the non-profit and helping kids in need through organized basketball. The NRBA helps kids move timely and successfully through their grades and go to college and/or a career. “Our focus is on responsibility and accountability,” Vaccaro said. “If you don’t strive for success in the classroom; if you cause problems at home or in the community; if you don’t understand the necessity of being a good person and citizen; you will not play for an NRBA team and you will not receive support off the court. But if you [do]... the NRBA could be life changing.” Here is how the NRBA changes lives and how your contribution can help. • Monitoring of school progress including providing assistance in the form of tutoring and increased guidance counseling. The NRBA currently employs 10 tutors. • College prep mentoring and counseling, including assistance with need-based
financial aid and/or athletic scholarship. • ACT/SAT prep • Assistance with NCAA eligibility • Post-secondary job placement assistance and counseling The NRBA currently supports 10 boys and girls programs from
fourth through eighth grades. It also provides assistance to boys and girls New Rochelle High School basketball programs, freshman through varsity. This is a program that deserves your help and support particularly if you or your organization has ties to the New Rochelle community. (Submitted)

The umpire strikes back LIVE MIKE Mike Smith
In my nearly 30 years of playing and watching baseball, I’ve witnessed my fair share of bizarre and unlikely occurrences. Hidden-ball tricks, walk-off home runs, gruesome injuries and spectacular catches; if something can happen between the foul lines, I was pretty sure I’d seen it. But on Sunday, in the second game of a double header, I watched a field umpire take his position behind first base prior to the first pitch while still wearing a chest protector designed for the guy behind home plate. It was funny, it was embarrassing, and it was our own fault. My men’s baseball season has been a trying one thus far, and it has nothing to do with my team’s play on the field. Serving as one of the league’s officials, I’ve gotten reports each week of bad player behavior, overwhelming aggressiveness towards umpires and even threats of bodily harm
directed at the people we pay to call our games. It was an insidious problem, handled poorly by those running the show, and eventually, the umpiring organization decided they couldn’t handle it anymore and terminated their contract with the league. Not that I blame them; there had been multiple instances of umpires being followed to the parking lot—some of which were captured on film for posterity— and ultimately the head scheduler felt that he could no longer risk the well-being of his guys by sending them to call league games. In order to keep the season going, we’ve been forced to use unaffiliated umpires, guys without an allegiance to any larger organization. And the results—as evidenced by Sunday’s chest protector wearing field ump—have been less than optimal to say the least. But while it’s easy to bemoan the state of our current umpiring, it’s important to remember that it was the lack of respect we
showed our old crews that was the catalyst here. And it’s not something that has been limited to our own little corner of the sporting world. In spring of 2017, the National Federation of State High School Associations published an alarming report about the dwindling number of officials and referees signing up to call high school sports games which stated that only two out of every 10 referees return for a third season of officiating, citing low pay and abuse as factors in hanging up their whistles. Has it always been this bad? Of course refs and umpires have always had to deal with a rogue parent or coach, but what about our culture has changed that makes it acceptable to cross the line with the men and women On July 8, Sports Editor Mike Smith’s baseball team had to play a game called by two umpires who had who officiate sporting contests? no business being out on the field.

Lindsay continues to make waves
From July 25-29, Harrison native Liliane Lindsay will be representing the U.S. at the U23 World Championships in Poland. Contributed Photos
By MIKE SMITH Sports Editor Local rower Liliane Lindsay has racked up quite a few accomplishments in her amateur career, and that doesn’t figure to change just because she recently finished college. In fact, the Yale University
graduate seems to be kicking things into high gear this summer, competing at the Royal Henley Regatta in the United Kingdom last week and earning a nod to represent the United States in the U23 World Championships later this month. Lindsay, a 2014 graduate of Harrison High School, shined in
her collegiate career for the Bulldogs, earning All-American honors in 2017 and All-Ivy recognition in both 2017 and 2018 to cap off her distinguished Yale career—the 2018 All-American selections have not yet been made. But at the Royal Henley Regatta from July 4-8, she found herself staring across the water

at many of her Yale teammates, opting instead to race in the eight boat for Princeton Training Center—one of five other American boats racing in the Remenham Challenge Cup. The regatta, which featured 16 of the top women’s boats squaring off against one another in a series of two-crew races, did
not see Lindsay’s Princeton crew directly take on her old Yale cohorts, however; the Princeton Training Center boat fell in the first heat to the defending champions from the University of Washington, while Yale eventually fell in the semifinals to a crew from the Australian-based Georgina Hope Rine-
hart National Training Center by 2.5 lengths. The Georgina Hope Rinehart crew would go on to edge the University of London in the finals held on July 8. But despite failing to grab the top prize at the Henley Regatta, Lindsay’s summer seems to be heating up. Prior to last week’s race, it was announced that the local standout would be a part of the U23 team that will represent the U.S. at the World Championships from July 25-29 in Poznan, Poland. The event won’t be the first time Lindsay has raced internationally, as she has previously shined as a member of the U.S. Junior National Team. In 2013, Lindsay stroked the junior national eight boat to a sixth-place finish in Trakai, Lithuania. The following year, as part of the pair, she took home a bronze medal at the games in Hamburg, Germany. Next fall, as she goes for her master’s in Environmental Policy at the University of Cambridge in England, Lindsay plans to continue her rowing career for the school’s prestigious team.
