Stumbling toward prosperity BARNUM FORUM SEES OPTIMISM, BUT FINDS HARTFORD GENERALLY WOEFUL BY BILL FALLON bfallon@westfairinc.com THE ANCIENT SCOURGE OF TAXES along with GE’s flight to the tax-friendly clime of Boston

served as the foundation for Barnum Financial Group’s business and economic forum on Jan. 26 at Gateway Community College in New Haven.

The dais featured Peter Gioia, vice president and economist for the Connecticut Business and Industry Association; John Ermer, partner with accounting and business consulting firm Beers, Hamerman, Cohen & Burger, with offices in Fairfield and in New Haven; and Kent Hanley, executive vice president, William Raveis Real Estate in Shelton. It was Gioia who led the charge against the state’s anti-business legislation. “We’re in recovery at roughly the same rate of recovery for the United States. The problem is we’ve been behind the national rate for quite some time. What holds us back are our own self-inflicted wounds. The legislature, with its repeated antibusiness moves, pre-

vents the kind of investment that can supercharge our growth. “What we need is a moratorium on antibusiness policy moves and a determination to create a sustainable pattern of spending that matches expected revenue,” he said. “If we do that, we have a chance to grow.” He said, “Connecticut struggles with the economy like every other state. But the other states are outsmarting us. They’re a lot smarter with public policy.” He said the state does not instill confidence in business. With confidence in the equation, “If things are not that good, but there’s a good indication things will get better, people will invest.” Gioia said during one of three presentations, one from each pan-

elist, “The fiscal situation is the biggest problem. I as a business owner need to feel confident I’ll make money this year and in 10 years in order to make this investment. If all you see is the potential for things to get worse in competition with other states that seem to be getting better, better, better, you’ve got to say, Where’s the safest place to invest my money?” Gioia also ticked off regional positives. They included growth in commercial aerospace and Defense Department manufacturing; a finance industry that “has stopped hemorrhaging jobs and is showing modest growth;” “a super-productive, well-educated work force” and location. “All that’s pretty strong,” he said. » FORUM, page 7

A NEW CANAAN COMPANY SWEATS THE DETAILS OF HIGH-END TRAVEL BY REECE ALVAREZ ralvarez@westfairinc.com

S

an Francisco is expecting more than 1 million visitors for Super Bowl 50 festivities, including jet setters from Fairfield and Westchester counties. Ticket prices are ranging from $4,000 nosebleeds to $400,000 suites. For visitors flying in on private jets arriving at Hayward Executive Airport outside the heart of Silicon Valley between San Francisco and San Jose, Thom Harrow’s aviation company, APP Jet Center, will be waiting to welcome them with a red-carpet reception. “We have invested a fair amount of money in creating a luxury environment from the moment they arrive,” said Harrow, who owns and operates the company from his New Canaan headquarters. APP Jet runs what are known in the aviation industry as fixed-base operations,

Super bowl crowds. His operation alone expects to more than quadruple the normal amount of aircraft it services over the first weekend in February in preparation for the Feb. 7 Super Bowl. “Normally we will have maybe 10 airplanes in a day,” he said. “Now we have as many as 150 of them and you have problems, like where you are going to put them.” APP Jet Center is nearly doubling its Hayward Executive Airport staff in order to handle the 2016 Super Bowl. Photo courtesy of APP Jet Center Across the entire weekend Harrow said he is expecting up to 170 flights carrying a range double the norm — are needed to handle the of passengers from from private barrage of flights, particularly as many of individuals to large corporate groups. At least 20 percent of the incoming flights the aircraft will be arriving and departing will be from Westchester County Airport. around the same time, Harrow said. The careful orchestration of servicing They are evenly split between corporate, the planes incorporates “pretty intimidating chartered and personal flights, Harrow said logistics,” he said. “At some point we are only going to increase the capacity of these airplanes by parking them pretty close to each other,” he said. “It is very dangerous for us. If you even nick the wing of one its of these airplanes you have to call the manufacturer of the airplane, you have to certify it's worthy to fly in the air, the plane usually can’t take off for two days and you have a pissed-off customer who is a high roller with an airplane and now — Thom Harrow he can’t leave.” According to Harrow, the total cost of a typical New York to San Francisco private jet flight can cost between $20,000 and To handle the increase in flights, the $25,000 — one way.

Serving the millionaire lifestyle comes with requirements. Not everyone who arrives at Hayward will be off to the big game, but even the pilots will be treated to top-of-the-line service. Harrow said he has spent up to $85,000 to prepare an upscale temporary tent facility, complete with high-quality furniture, big flat-screen TVs and the “highest-end catering firm in Silicon Valley” to entertain pilots and crew members. “This is the Silicon Valley game, the corridor of tech and a crowd that is used to living well,” he said. While the high rollers will be arriving in droves, that doesn’t mean the profits will be piling up for Harrow. “This is kind of a break-even event for us after the expenses we put in,” he said. Charging $500 for parking, Harrow said the company makes its money on jet fuel, but considers the event a wise publicity investment to showcase the base in advance of an upcoming $5 million expansion by APP Jet. “I want all these people to come in and have a super impression of our airport and our operation so they come back” he said.

Camera seller shifts focus within Stamford

or more than 40 years Camera Wholesalers of Stamford has been a hub for shutterbugs. That tradition will continue, as it has since 1971, with the camera shop’s third relocation in its history — all within Stamford — this time back to its roots on Summer Street. According to a statement by the company, the move to its new location ref lects Camera Wholesalers’ commitment to the Fairfield County community

by establishing a fresh brick and mortar presence. The new location will be inside the Crowne Plaza Stamford Hotel complex at 2701 Summer St., the site of the original store in 1971. According to the company it will be a newly designed store with an expanded showroom with additional space for its photo lab, a larger education area for individual and group photo classes and increased shortterm parking outside the shop as well as

access to the hotel’s 1,200 space parking lot. The store will also be offering special thanks to the community, which has kept it in business while other competitors have fallen to the rapid changes in photographic technology. “We’re offering deep discounts, which we’ve frankly never offered in the past.” said Fred Bonilla, the store’s photo instructor. “It’s our way of thanking the community for their support during the more than four decades

that we’ve served the Stamford community. We hope to continue doing so from our beautiful new location.” Camera Wholesalers is the only full-service photography store in Stamford and one of just a few in the county. Their one-hour photo lab, which originally only catered to film, is now a state of the art digital photo lab for both film and digital images. — Reece Alvarez


Fed leader to offer outlook for regional, local economies The business council cites a number of positive indicators for the state and national economy. As of November, the private sector has recovered all of the jobs lost during the recession after five years of recovery. Overall, 89 percent of the state’s total jobs have been regained (although Connecticut still needs 13,300 new jobs before it can claim a full expansion). Nationally, economic growth has been steady, with its sustainability validated, most recently, with the Fed’s mid-December

2015 increase of the key interest rate and looking ahead to 2016, most published forecasts are modest, hovering around a 2.5 percent growth in GDP, according to the council. But will these positive trends continue and is the region well-positioned for the future, particularly in light of rapidly changing industries and economies? Tracy will attempt to shed some light on these questions and more. For more information or to register, visit BusinessFairfield.com.

A

s Connecticut and the country shake off the recession, The Business Council of Fairfield County is planning to host Joseph Tracy, executive vice president and special adviser to the president of the  Federal Reserve Bank of New York, to provide an in-depth look at the tri-state economic outlook with special emphasis on Fairfield County. “As a neighborhood in the metro New York economy, what happens here economi-

cally is directly tied to New York, yet our regional economy is unique in its own right,” said Christopher P. Bruhl, president and CEO of the business council. “Joseph Tracy’s take on both the regional and national indicators have been tremendously insightful in the past, and as our region continues to evolve, will be of great value for business leaders to hear into 2016,” he said. Tracey will headline the  council’s 2016 National Economic Outlook and Regional Forecast on  Feb. 5 at 7:45 a.m. in the Stamford Marriott.

Fairness sought in Port Chester development

T

he $300 million mixed-use development proposed by Starwood Capital Group of Greenwich on the former site of United Hospital by the Interstate 95/287 junction is expected to give Port Chester’s economy a boost, and Joan Grangenois-Thomas wants to make sure village residents get their share. Grangenois-Thomas is a member of Sustainable Port Chester Alliance, a coalition of residents and civic, community and labor organizations created in response to the plans submitted to the village board. The 20-member organization that includes leaders from Human Development Services of Westchester, Communication Workers of America Local 1103, Port Chester/ Rye NAACP and Building and Construction Trades Council of Westchester and Putnam

counties, is seeking a Community Benefits Agreement that would ensure the village gets a fair shot at project-related construction jobs, housing and funding for its schools. The alliance is seeking guarantees from Starwood that subcontractors would hire locally, that village schools not be shortchanged via tax abatements and traffic concerns be addressed. The Community Benefits Agreement would need to be signed by both sides. Grangenois-Thomas, a Port Chester resident for more than 25 years and member of the Port Chester/Rye NAACP, said Sustainable Port Chester is not an opposition group, rather saying its members “advocate for responsible development at the United Hospital site.”

LETTER to the editor

Helping casinos while ignoring GE A LEGISLATOR AND A FORMER REPRESENTATIVE WEIGH IN

ANYONE INTERESTED IN CONNECTICUT’S FUTURE should be deeply concerned about the way Democratic legislative leaders handled the GE fiasco as opposed to their allout effort to preserve Connecticut’s casino industry by expanding casino gambling in the state. Despite strong evidence to the contrary, House and Senate leaders did their best to deny that the state’s poor business climate, massive tax increases, yawning deficits and uncertain budgeting process influenced GE’s decision to move its headquarters to Boston. As the Hartford Courant pointed out, they were actually “dismissive, even disdainful, of GE’s concerns.” They did next to nothing to encourage the kind of full-court diplomatic and economic press Boston put on to snag the company, and in the end expressed a sense of fatalism that it was simply impossible to stop GE from leaving given its desire to be in a higher tech and urban environment. That may or may not be true. But the extent to which Connecticut’s political leadership lost touch with GE and didn’t put up a more vigorous fight to keep it represents a monumental failure. GE is not just another corporation.  It is one of the world’s largest and most innovative companies, with leading positions in industries of the future, including alternative energy, medical equipment and transportation. Contrast the legislative leadership’s response to the GE situation with the way it has rushed to help Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun defend themselves against mounting competition and the loss of casino revenue and jobs.  Legislative leaders have met repeatedly with the casinos’ tribal owners to discuss their needs, ease regulation and coordinate strategy. In what a Hartford Courant columnist calls “a sweet special deal,” they are strongly supporting the tribes’ efforts to open a casino in the

Hartford area to try to counter the MGM casino being built in Springfield. The contrast is all the greater considering the fact that, unlike GE, casinos are a declining business in Connecticut because of growing regional oversaturation. The combined revenue for the state’s two casinos is down 40 percent from its peak. They’ve eliminated over 8,000 casino jobs and have been replacing full-time jobs with part-time jobs to reduce wage costs and eliminate medical benefits. Foxwoods is mired in debt.

Unlike GE and other businesses that contribute to economic growth, casinos leave a tangle of serious and costly social problems in their wake.

The story is similar elsewhere, with growing competition cutting into casino profits in more and more states. Delaware has had to put millions of dollars toward bailing out its three casinos. New Jersey has spent hundreds of millions trying to prop up its casinos, only to see a third of them close in the last two years and revenues plummet by 50 percent from their high. Casinos in Maine and Pennsylvania are seeking tax relief because of disappointing earnings, while casino revenue in Maryland, Ohio and even at Massachusetts’ brand new Plainridge slots casino are some

40 percent below projections. Moreover, Connecticut’s casino boom was fueled primarily by out-of-state customers who brought new money into the state. But with out-of-staters increasingly gambling at new casinos in their own states, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun are becoming increasingly dependent on the gambling losses of Connecticut residents, which economists point out merely transfers money within the state without creating any net new economic growth. The proposed Hartford area “convenience” casino would do nothing to bring disappearing out-of-state gamblers back, but would encourage many current Connecticut gamblers to gamble more frequently and attract local people who do not currently gamble to do so. Unlike GE and other businesses that contribute to economic growth, casinos leave a tangle of serious and costly social problems in their wake. The New York Times recently described casinos as “instruments of blight — blighted neighborhoods, the blighted lives of problem gamblers and the blighted politics of elected officials who can’t or won’t, find a better path to economic development.” It’s time our state government begins to get serious about making the structural changes necessary to attract and keep productive business and begins to look at instruments other than gambling for moving Connecticut forward. — By Robert Steele and Tony Hwang Robert Steele of Essex was a Republican U.S. representative from eastern Connecticut from 1970 to 1974 and is the author of “The Curse: Big-Time Gambling’s Seduction of a Small New England Town.”  State Sen. Tony Hwang, R-Fair�ield, is an assistant state Senate minority leader.

Citrin Cooperman Corner Getting Greater Value For Your Business BY ALAN G. BADEY, CPA, CGMA CITRIN COOPERMAN As we dive into 2016, the climate for selling your business has never been better. Opportunities seem to be seeking the sellers, across a number of industries, as buyers are more aggressively looking ALAN G. BADEY to close transactions before an auction occurs, and larger companies and private equity firms are now bidding for small companies. If you’ve been thinking about selling your company, the time is now. Here are a few tips to help you prepare and drive valuation: EBITDA is generally king. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is used in many cases as a measure of transportable profitability. A multiple based on perceived risk is applied to arrive at valuation. Therefore, it is common sense that the greater the EBITDA, the greater the valuation. However, demonstrating that your EBITDA is consistently increasing can drive the multiple the buyer is willing to apply. Look for new ways to reduce costs, increase gross profit and margins or create efficiences that will increase EBITDA. When it comes to selling your business, don’t fool yourself. Most business owners believe their business is worth more than the market will pay. You should educate yourself on M&A trends and industry valuation metrics, get more comfortable with the valuation process, and know if your company is a high or low performer. Think about your business model as it compares to your competition and look for ways to enhance your value proposition to separate your business from the pack.

Berchem, Moses & Devlin managing partner Marsha Moses welcomed more than 170 guests and introduced a tribute video in honor of Robert L. Berchem.

Robert Berchem’s first secretary, Suzanne Whittaker, with BMD partner Brian Lema.

Exit strategy doesn’t necessarily mean 100% sale from day one. Many owners are now looking for assistance in taking their companies to the next level – and that can mean raising capital for shareholder liquidity or for accelerating growth. In either case, one can sell a minority share to a strategic partner that will help accomplish these goals. Finding a partner with capital, a successful track record of growing companies, and industry knowledge is very attractive because it often provides access to international markets, a larger network of contacts, more financial sophistication, and state-of-the-art technology. Many businesses often have IP that is not secured, and as such, creates diminution of value and major issues when trying to close on a sale. Take the time now to assess the IP you think you own, current contractual rights and how you are protecting your brand and patents. Failing to do so can significantly impact value.

Patti Avallone (wife of Superior Court Judge Anthony Avallone) with BMD senior partner Rolan Young Smith, BMD Senior Partner Richard J. Buturla and BMD paralegal Michele Walsh.

As the business owner, it’s not about you. Reducing the owner’s involvement in the day to day increases the value of your business. Transition from working in the business to on the business. It’s critical that the business is not dependent on any one person. Lock in managers you want to retain with a certain percentage of equity and keep them motivated with creative compensation plans. Create the ability to transition your operations with ease. You want to be able to go on vacation and be confident the company can run smoothly. Implement and improve your corporate governance and controls to strengthen your business and drive value. Many middle market business owners tend to have a handsoff approach to their internal controls. We find that the owners themselves are the decision makers and they do so without proper governance in place and usually without a working board of directors. However, for sale, better control over internal functions leads to a smoother process and reporting for all parties involved and will create higher value for your company when it comes time to sell. Create accountability for yourself. Company value can be enhanced by its ability to master its own data. It may have higher than average margins, quality people, and adequate financial controls and processes, but without having a firm grasp of what type of information is being generated, the business has a blind spot and is likely missing an opportunity. Just like a mail order company naturally uses data to better target customers, making the right offer at the right time with the right product, you should be able to demonstrate an understanding of your customers, their demographics, buying habits and opportunities. Proper tax planning is a critical component of a solid financial foundation. As you gear up for a sale, work with your tax advisor to make sure you are structuring your company for capital gains rather than ordinary income. As the majority of transactions are asset purchases, place emphasis on building intangible assets that create capital gains. By structuring company assets and the transaction properly, you can save a 20% differential in rates. About the Author: Alan G.

“I’m fairly optimistic,” he said. “We ended the year stronger, with more jobs and more opportunity.” He called fiscal and public policy issues, “the decisions we can control.” Ermer said, “We have some problems and messes to clean up, but like Peter was saying, a lot is positive.” Still, in regard to state and local corporate taxes, he said, “Hartford, we have a problem.” Ermer noted GE did not move to Nicaragua, but to Massachusetts and said, “Our biggest competition is other states.” Specific to recent events, he said, “If you’re hearing the GE move had nothing to do with taxes, don’t believe it.” Among the observations of his presentation” “We’re not helping ourselves with our tax environment.” Again citing Gioia he said, “Like Peter was saying, the state’s tax environment is controllable. A lot of factors are not.” Hanley said his company’s 120 offices in the Northeast and newest address in Naples, Fla., had combined to see a 9 percent uptick in real estate transactions year over year, 77, 248 in 2014 and 84,176 in 2015, with sales volume up 5 percent (to more than $28 billion). “We’re not moving to the suburbs,” he said regarding trends. “We want to walk to trains and restaurants and have convenient access to trains and buses. If you live in and

around cities, people are migrating there.” As for those who might previously have considered homes he termed “McMansions,” consumer tastes are changing. “The cost of maintaining these homes is changing their habits. They’re concerned with landscaping bills. They would rather watch expenses and keep that money in their pocket. A lot got hurt in 2008 and they don’t want that again.” Hanley cited evidence of a Constitution

State wanderlust, noting that when most people move, they move nine to 12 miles; in Connecticut 30 percent are leaving the state. Individual pockets of real estate are doing well, he said. Darien, for example, saw transactions and sales volume rise. New Canaan for 2015 compared with 2014 witnessed transactions off 7.6 percent and volume off 8.1 percent. (Fairfield and Greenwich each saw transactions up and volume down.)

Hanley said regarding mortgages, “We are in a more responsible lending environment.” He said statewide home sales figures are “down a little” but as for what he termed doom and gloom, “Some of the statistics don’t show that.” He noted his age, 58, and said the interest rate on his first mortgage was 17 percent. “Today, interest rates can’t go much lower,” he said. “It’s a good time to buy.”

ASK ANDI

BY ANDI GRAY

Act now before employee burnout burns you A key player in our operations area is getting burned out. We can’t afford to lose her. How do we find the balance between getting work done on time and keeping burnout at a minimum? THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: Burnout comes from stress, so step back and figure out where the stress is coming from. Teach staff about delegation. Focus on the most essential things. Give employees control, and mean it. Create healthy outlets to work off tension. A few challenges can be good, as they help to make things interesting. Too many challenges, problems that seem too big, too many things going wrong, too many hours invested in unproductive activities, can all lead to feelings of being overwhelmed, stressed, tense and, ultimately, burned out. Too much tension is destructive. It eats away at happiness, health and general well-being. Your job as boss is to constantly monitor individual and group stress levels, making sure everyone is in the productive, not the destructive range. When people are strained, start asking questions. ■ Are things outside work contributing to stress at work? ■ What about the work environment isn’t working? ■ Are there enough of the right people to do the work? ■ Have things changed, such that the old ways don’t work so well anymore? Get everyone together. Talk about what’s not working. Brainstorm possible solutions. ■ Are people being encouraged to succeed? ■ Are expectations realistic? ■ Are people capable and fully trained? ■ Is everyone clear about goals and confident they can meet them? Take an honest look at the environment. Realistically address problems. Let staff make recommendations for reorganizing and reprioritizing how things get done. Too much work? Bring in temps to fill in gaps. Decide what to delegate to untrained support staff, and what to eliminate altogether – either temporarily or permanently. Help employees decide what to delegate by making a list of everything they do. Figure out which tasks would be the easiest to hand off. Teach employees how to train someone to take over; don’t just assume they know how to let go. If things are swirling and priorities are unclear, sometimes the best way forward is

just to start somewhere. Ask people to decide at home when walking in the door at work. If which problems they need to tackle first. that’s the case for a good employee, consider Giving them control is a way to increase their how to lighten the load at work until things turn around at home. Try job sharing, shiftsense of well-being. Keep in mind that employees might ing from full time to part time, sabbaticals approach a problem differently from how and guaranteed work upon return. Give employees permission to say, you’d do it. That’s fine. Encourage staff to make decisions and take ownership. Monitor “Enough,” and mean it. Go work on somehow things are going and acknowledge thing different. Take a walk around the progress, building on successes until things block. Take a day off, or a full vacation. One of the best things you can do as a boss is smooth out. Encourage laughter. It’s a great de- point out that the time for taking a break stresser. Teach people not to take things too is now.

Family Centers to open Greenwich health facility

ork has begun to convert a vacant multipurpose space at the Wilbur Peck public housing complex in Greenwich into Family Centers’ new health clinic. The clinic will offer residents access to health care services, according to Family Centers, a partner agency of United Way, the Community Fund of Darien and the New Canaan Community Foundation. An opening date is targeted for spring.  The clinic was designed by architect Charles E. McDonald Jr., based in Pennsylvania. The contractor is Greenwichbased Pecora Brothers Inc. The Greenwich Housing Authority is “a major partner” in the project.  Additionally, the United Way of Greenwich and the town of Greenwich Department of Social Services worked on the project to assess the town’s low-income families’ health care needs. Funding came from a federal New Access Points grant and from the Turning Point Foundation and the Mark Family Foundation, national philanthropic organizations. Called Family Centers Healthcare at Wilbur Peck Court, the clinic will provide primary health care services to children and adults living in Greenwich Public Housing units, Section 8 housing and the surround-

Creative Partnership for Businesses with Open Minds Arts For Learning Connecticut (AFLCT) and Comradity Strategy & Creative Resource Center have partnered to offer corporate teams a unique way to inspire creative thinking in business. For 35 years, AFLCT has been selectively sourcing professional teaching and performing artists for school, library and community center programs, placing an emphasis on arts integration. After 30 years in marketing and promotion, Jim Kern and I founded the Comradity Strategy & Creative Resource Center last year offering shared workspaces, designed to inspire creativity in the way people work and hold meetings. Located at 845 Canal St., Stamford, south of the train station and 95, the space has been buzzing with more than 50 professionals, offering strategy and creative services and businesses holding strategic planning meetings and training sessions in spaces equipped with WiFi and corporate level audiovisual services. Meeting at a Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County Common Ground workshop, Mike Kachuba, associate director of AFLCT, and I realized our organizations have a complementary vision for a renaissance in creative thinking. Engagement in the arts brings fresh perspectives to the way sales, marketing and development people think and communicate. AFLCT and Comradity began offering content to businesses planning strategic planning and training meetings. These programs provide corporate teams a chance to experience the unique processes professional artists use to create, communicate, and collaborate. ODonnell Learning recently held a team-building meeting with its contract service providers — many who have been working together but have never met. The meeting began with a team-building session led by Carol Glynn, actress and kinesthetic learning specialist, who said, “It’s rewarding to see the tension melt before your eyes and complete strangers connect on a human level using techniques actors use to improvise together.” Claire Brennan of O’Donnell Learning thought the meeting was a worthwhile investment saying, “We had a memorable meeting. Instead of a forgettable hotel space, we met in an inspiring space and Carol led us through a unique experience to start the meeting with a fresh perspective.” Katherine Kern, co-founder, Comradity Mike Kachuba, associate director, AFLCT Members, Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County

Brasil ’66 with Sergio Mendes at The Ridgefield Playhouse Sergio Mendes, legendary for bringing bossa nova to the U.S. nearly five decades ago with his Brazilian-born fusion of jazz, samba, funk and pop, will serve up a sizzling show at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Wednesday, Feb. 3, 8 p.m. This “109 Cheese and Wine Evening of Art” is a Wine and Jazz Series and Palm Bay International World Beat Series show and kicks off at 7:15 p.m. in the lobby, with a complimentary wine tasting. From the mid-1960s to the late 1970s, Mendes established his legend by taking numerous albums and singles, such as “Brasil 66,” “Mas Que Nada” and “The Look of Love” to the top of the pop charts. Highly sought after for collaborations with today’s pop stars, the Brazilian pianist, composer, arranger and bandleader is still making his mark on music. His most recent album, “Magic,” includes collaborations with will.i.am, the freshman3 and Cody Wise on “My, My, My, My Love,” creating what the Seattle Post Intelligencer calls “a vital new sound.” For tickets ($75), call or visit the box office at The Ridgefield Playhouse, (203) 438-5795. The Ridgefield Playhouse is a not-for-profit performing arts center at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield; ridgefieldplayhouse.org.

Westport Country Playhouse’s Mystery/Thriller Reading Westport Country Playhouse will present a script-in-hand reading of “Scotland Road,” a mystery/thriller involving a woman who may be a survivor of the Titanic, on Monday, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m. Written by Jeffrey Hatcher, the play will be directed by Anne Keefe, Playhouse associate artist and curator of the playreading series. Cast members are Beth Fowler, Daniel Gerroll, Patricia Kalember and Liv Rooth. Tickets are $20 each. The story takes place in the last decade of the twentieth century, when a beautiful young woman in 20th-century clothing is found floating on an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic, saying only one word: Titanic. She is rescued and taken to an isolated spot on the coast of Maine where an expert on the sinking of the liner interrogates her. His goal: to crack her story, get her to confess she’s a fake and reveal her true identity. His one clue: her enigmatic references to an unknown place called “Scotland Road.” The mission of Westport Country Playhouse is to enrich, enlighten and engage the community through the power of professionally produced theater worth talking about and the welcoming experience of the Playhouse campus. For more

SPECIAL REPORT

HEALTH CARE

Danbury Hospital has your back BY REECE ALVAREZ ralvarez@westfairInc.com

D

anbury Hospital’s efforts to improve care and facilities continue with the recent relocation and expansion of its Center for Advanced Orthopedic and Spine Care. “The joke on the street is this place is called Buck Pavilion, but they call it Buckingham Palace, that’s how nice we think it looks,” said Dr. David Bomback, medical director of the orthopedic and neurosurgery unit at the hospital. Bomback has served patients at Danbury Hospital for the past 11 years and notes the significant improvements in the new joint and spine center located, located in the Peter and Carmen Lucia Buck Pavilion, an 11-story, 316,000-square-foot space made possible through the donation of $30 million by Subway sandwich chain co-founder Peter Buck of Danbury. While the Buck Pavilion opened in the summer of 2014, the joint and spine center only moved into its new location in midJanuary and so far, so good, said Bomback. The new facility is aimed at creating more space for both patients and caregivers, with a particular focus on providing more privacy and comfort for patients undergoing spine and joint surgery, of which the hospital

touts it performs more than any other hospital in Fairfield County. “It is very much like staying in a hotel, but with access to world-class doctors and nurses at their fingertips,” Bomback said. “You would be hard-pressed to find a hotel in the greater Danbury area that is nicer than what you are seeing in these rooms.” The 35 new rooms feature three distinct improvements from the unit’s previous facility, he said. In addition to each room being nearly double the size of the previous rooms, every room now has its own private shower in addition to a pull-out couch, large flat-screen TV and panoramic views of the Danbury region. The impact of these amenities is greater than face value might portray. “To me the most private area you can be is in your own restroom, to have that three steps from your bed is invaluable,” Bomback said. “There is nothing worse than a patient having to walk down the hall with two nurses and a therapist, somebody clutching their gown in the back so they are not showing themselves and then get to some bathroom that has been used by other people on the floor.” The ability for family or friends to sleep in the patient’s room on a full pull-out couch rather than a standard or reclining chair is

something Bomback has already seen in use and make a big difference for family members who wish to stay close to their loved ones without the expense and travel a hotel stay incurs. All together the variety of amenities work together to create a better patient experience, which has been reflected in patient satisfactory surveys, Bomback said. But it is not only patients who are hav-

ing a better stay. The expanded rooms also provide more space and ease of access for medical staff to care for patients, said Crystel Noujaim, a physical therapist in the unit. “The rooms give a little bit more of an ability to get the patient going in almost a home simulated area,” Noujaim said. This helps caregivers and patients get to what she describes as the best part of the job, “seeing results and seeing them do better.”

Foster grandparents helping local kids

SHU nurses train globally, award follows

ridgeport’s Child and Family Guidance Center has received $94,000 from United Way of Coastal Fairfield County to help support the center’s foster grandparent program to mentor and tutor local children in need. The grant will send 42 foster grandparent volunteers to public schools in Bridgeport and Norwalk, where they will support academic and social development to third-grade students. “The impact that our volunteers make is incredible — with at least 80 percent of the children with a foster grandparent tutor showing academic improvement and/or improvement in social skills,” said program director Sara Witherington. “Our partnership with United Way of Coastal Fairfield County helps make this possible.” The volunteers will be assisting children in 25 Schools of Hope, county elementary schools partnered with the United Way organization and dedicated to ensuring their students are reading at grade level by the end of third grade.

Sara Witherington

Each volunteer spends 20 hours every week of the academic school year in a School of Hope, working one-on-one with students under an assignment plan created by a teacher. The United Way has provided grants for the program since 2009.

acred Heart University’s College of Nursing study abroad program has received an honorable mention in the 2016 Institute of International Education Andrew Heiskell Awards for Innovation in International Education. The award recognizes schools that provide “innovative programs and services to make study abroad more accessible to a broader student population,” according to the IIE. “The SHU community is proud to be awarded a Heiskell award honorable mention in recognition of the opportunities we developed to extend access of a rich array of study abroad experiences for our nursing students,” said Carrie Wojenski, SHU’s executive director of global affairs. “At SHU, we understand the importance of providing our students with the skills and experiences needed to serve our global community. The strides made in our nursing program are a testament to the achievability of a global experience for students in all degree programs.” The IIE is an international education and training organization. It developed the Heiskell Awards in 2001 to “recognize and

One part of the SHU College of Nursing study abroad program allows students to take part in clinical field experiences in Jamaica, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic, learning while delivering health care to developing countries. Other SHU College of Nursing-partnering countries and regions include Ireland, Australia and Ghana.

Kindness on wheels at Greenwich Hospital

he Greenwich Hospital Kindness Cart program began September and is about to expand, offering the likes of hearing aid batteries, hair ties, deodorant, music, puzzles and back scratchers, all free, to make a hospital stay more pleasant. The cart also offers stuffed animals that are part of the hospital’s Adopt-A-Pet program. The stuffed animals are given to Alzheimer’s patients and those with other forms of dementia. Research shows stuffed animals can benefit people in mid to late stages of the disease by providing them with the opportunity to nurture, according to the hospital. The program will expand to medical oncology in February. The hospital’s patient and guest relations department originated and designed the program and is responsible for determining stock and inventory, which are based on patient requests. The department trains volunteers and staff and provides general program oversight. Four volunteers staff the cart in teams of two. They have received an additional two hours of training and orientation to participate. The patient and guest relations depart-

ment based the idea on a simple version developed first at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Washington state and rolled it out in conjunction with the its Adopt-a-Pet effort. In a statement, the hospital, which is a member of the Yale New Haven Health System,  said, “The mission of the Kindness Cart is to demonstrate to patients that we know small things matter. When a hospitalization is unexpected, something small like a hair band or a hearing aid battery can make all the difference in the world. We built and stocked the cart with the small items patients have requested the most. “The Kindness Cart has been very well received. Patients are appreciative of the efforts taken to recognize their nonmedical needs and support their comfort.”

Frontotemporal Degeneration (FTD) is the most common cause of dementia for people under 60, affecting more than 50,000 in the U.S. alone. Onset strikes earlier in life—when few anticipate dementia—and accurate diagnosis can take years. Families lose active parents and breadwinners without knowing what’s stealing away the person they love. And when a diagnosis is made, there are no effective treatments. Help to change that reality today. www.theAFTD.org/learnmore

Labor Mandates: Connecticut’s Next Big Economic Test

C

onnecticut begins 2016 having finally regained all of the private sector jobs lost in the Great Recession of 2008. Although our pace of recovery lagged the nation and neighboring states, we— and the tens of thousands of families in the workforce we represent—are committed to sustaining these job gains and building upon them.

attitudes on imposing untried, unnecessary, inflexible, one-size-fits all labor mandates. We are tired of the negative perception of Connecticut’s business climate. We are committed to partnering with lawmakers to make Connecticut more competitive.

Connecticut is

In return, we ask state lawmakers to refrain from making our commitment more difficult by creating new or expanding existing labor mandates.

Gov. Malloy, in signing the budget adjustments produced in last December’s special legislative session, said it best when he remarked, “We no doubt have more to do in the General Assembly session ahead, but this is a positive step to improve the state’s business climate and deliver long-term predictability that will allow our families and businesses to thrive.”

Businesses of all sizes looking to retain or grow jobs in Connecticut, above all else, need stability and predictability to build a secure workforce. They look not only at whether or not the state’s fiscal house is in order, but also at lawmakers’

However, the reality is that the labor mandates enacted in recent years have added to the already high cost of sustaining Connecticut jobs, and they have slowed our recovery. Companies that have chosen to exit the state have directly cited these mandates as contributing factors.

Efforts in recent months to reduce state spending were an important first step, but the journey to steadily securing Connecticut’s workforce gains is a long one—and we cannot afford any steps backward. It is critical to Connecticut’s businesses that the perpetual threat of new and expanded labor mandates ends now. The next step in the journey requires more action. We urge lawmakers to take the following steps in the 2016 session:

1. Reject efforts to establish a state-sponsored retirement plan for the private sector that will directly compete with Connecticut’s vital financial services industry and also force businesses to enroll employees in, or incur the payroll costs of facilitating contributions to, any such plan.

2. Reject creating a costly and unsustainable new paid family and medical leave program or expanding existing leave requirements.

3. Reject efforts to impose penalty taxes on employers who create job opportunities for unskilled and entry-level employees simply because some of those opportunities start at less than $15 per hour.

4. Reject the addition or expansion of any other one-size-fits-all employee leave or scheduling mandates.

5. Protect the unemployment compensation trust fund for future employees by adopting the same unemployment benefit reforms that our neighboring states are successfully using. Connecticut’s economy has newfound traction. It takes courage and bold action to set a new course and stay on it. If legislators do their part to provide job creators with relief from current and newly proposed costly labor mandates, we can work together to expand and create more jobs and opportunities right here, where they belong.
