Peekskill’s ‘Noo’ era BY ALEESIA FORNI aforni@westfairinc.com

I

f you happen to take a stroll down Main Street in Peekskill with its new mayor, Andre Rainey, it won’t take you long to realize he’s something of a local celebrity. Roughly a dozen passersby stop for a handshake, a hug, a quick hello during the 5-minute walk, including a group of off-duty firefighters and a man who leans out the driver’s side window to call, “Andre!” Some even greet

him by his longtime nickname, “Noodle” or “Noo.” If he has something scheduled in the city, Rainey said, he makes sure to budget extra traveling time in order to greet his constituents. “I love it though,” he adds quickly. “My goal is to be that face that’s friendly, that’s happy, so anyone who’s watching me wants to come see what’s going on here.” That love is apparent in the ever smiling, outgoing Rainey.

New employee benefit: help with the student loan bill BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH rdeffenbaugh@westfairinc.com

C

ollege graduates are entering the workforce with student loan debt averaging about $35,000. Some are finding a new partner in paying those huge monthly bills: their employer. Large companies such as health insurance giant Aetna Inc., Fidelity Investments and international accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers provide money toward student

loans as part of their employee benefits package. The companies are responding to a $1.3 trillion issue. Student indebtedness climbed 170 percent between 2006 and 2016. New York Life Insurance Co., which is based in Manhattan and employs about 600 people in downtown White Plains, added student loan assistance to its list of employee benefits last fall. Justin Bush, who works at the company’s office at Westchester One in White Plains, is one of the employees who will benefit.

Yorktown chiropractor develops remedy for ‘text neck’ BY ALEESIA FORNI MAIN OFFICE TELEPHONE 914-694-3600 OFFICE FAX 914-694-3699 EDITORIAL EMAIL jgolden@westfairinc.com WRITE TO 3 Westchester Park Drive, Suite G7 White Plains, N.Y. 10604-3407

ccording to a recent study, Americans spend an average of five hours each day looking down at a mobile device, whether scrolling through social media, surfing the web or trying to beat a level of Candy Crush. While many have felt the effects of these prolonged periods of poor posture in the form of stiff necks or sore shoulders, the long-term damage could be far more serious. “I’ve treated many, many people suffering from painful neck, back and shoulder problems due to poor posture, frequently caused by the overuse of these tech devices,” said Tom Carpenter, a chiropractor in Yorktown Heights who has been in practice for more than 30 years. “Everybody is looking down at their phone all the time, and they’re ruining their necks.” A human head weighs roughly 11 pounds. According to research published in Surgical Technology International, when the head tilts forward, it puts increased pressure on the neck. A 15 degree forward tilt can increase the strain on the neck to 27 pounds, while a 60 degree forward tilt increases that weight to 60 pounds. This strain, commonly referred to as “text neck,” also puts pressure on the spine and supporting muscles, tendons and ligaments. This forward head posture could also lead to long-term muscle strain, disc herniations, arthritis and pinched nerves. “This is a common problem for people that’s caused by looking down too much. It’s like putting on a five-pound hat and walking around with it all day long,” said Carpenter, who is also a certified personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist. “It’s not good for you.” To help remedy those issues, Carpenter has developed Stand Corrected, a device that he says can help reverse damage cause by years of poor posture. His invention is a portable, lightweight, harness-like stretching tool that uses the weight of a person’s arms to provide a stretch that elongates muscles and can reduce pain. The long strap includes a foam tube that is placed at the back of the neck to encourage a healthy cervical curve. The straps and pads are then draped over the

front of the shoulders, and the users hands are slipped into the loops along the straps, which can then be lifted behind the back to provide a stretch. Carpenter said the device can provide relief almost instantly and takes just minutes per day to have a positive effect on posture. “You can just start with just 5

to 10 seconds, then wait a day and see how you feel,” he said. “You don’t have to go any longer than half a minute.” The device could also be used by musicians who hunch over their instruments, dentists or massage therapists who lean over patients, gardeners bending over to dig dirt or even those who spend their free time knitting or crocheting. Stand Corrected has proven to be so popular that last year, Carpenter decided to broaden its reach. He recently signed a deal with e-retailers to offer the product through websites including Walmart, Sears, Kmart and Amazon. “It’s looking very promising right now,” Carpenter said of his invention’s future. Carpenter said that while there are a number of products available for health care practitioners on the market, “they just weren’t enough.” “I could never find one that was able to simultaneously stretch the neck and shoulders back, encourage the normal 40 degree forward curve of the neck, correct upper body posture in general, and at the same time, also be portable, easy to use, effective and inexpensive,” he said. Carpenter came up with the idea 4 years ago after using a Stretch Out Strap, an assisted

stretching tool often used by his personal training clients. “If I tried to just use a strap to stretch my upper body, it wasn’t very comfortable, but it also didn’t grab enough of the shoulder to pull it back,” he recalled. “I said to myself, ‘I wonder if I took a tube and put this strap down inside of it, if I could create something better.’” Drawing upon his skills in fabric and design, skills he honed as the owner of a furniture upholstery shop prior to embarking on his career as a chiropractor, Carpenter decided to create something new. He added two foam shoulder pads to his design, which are both removable and adjustable using fastening strips. “I was making them at my kitchen table,” he recalled. Carpenter soon began bringing his inventions into his office for some of his patients. “They started really liking it,” he said. “They didn’t have to just wait to come to see me. They could use these at home.” To help bring awareness to both his invention and the issues that can be caused by “text neck,” Carpenter is in the midst of a marketing push and recently embarked on a new social media campaign. “Sales are picking up,” he said. “We’re very optimistic.”

Cuomo touts airport investment, sake partnership in speech on Hudson Valley economy BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH rdeffenbaugh@westfairinc.com

D

uring a speech at Marist College in Poughkeepsie on Feb. 22, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo promised a range of

investment for the region, including an international sake-producing partnership in Dutchess County, a new Metro-North stop for the Woodbury Common outlets and funding for improvements at New York Stewart International Airport.

Cuomo focused primarily on proposals in his 2019 fiscal year executive budget. He touted what he described as his administration’s focus on driving economic development in upstate New York. That initiative has included close to

$7 billion in investments in the Hudson Valley region during his administration. The governor promised to expand that investment in his 2019 budget and 2018 agenda through a number of projects.

CIA SAKE

The governor highlighted a new partnership between The Culinary Institute of America and Japanese sake maker Asahi Shuzo International Co. Ltd. The Japanese rice wine maker will work with the Hyde Park college to launch its first U.S. brewery just north of the CIA’s campus at the corner of Route 9 and St. Andrews Road. Asahi Shuzo produces the line of Dassai premium Junmai Daiginjo sake. Cuomo said the partnership will bring “32 new jobs, but, more importantly, great sake.” “Can you imagine, Culinary Institute of America sake,” Cuomo said. “That’s going to be special.” The state is providing $588,235 in tax credits through the Excelsior Jobs Program for the estimated $28 million project. Asahi Shuzo plans to start construction on the brewery this spring, with plans to open in early 2019.

At full capacity, the brewery will produce 332,640 gallons of sake a year. The CIA will work with the company to develop curriculum, certification programs, workshops and special events and tastings based around sake.

sion of Route 32, a new Route 32 bridge over Route 17 and a reconfiguration of the ramp leading to I-87. The project will also add a bus station, expanded commuter parking and an updated technology system to guide traffic signals.

WOODBURY COMMON STATION STOP

NEW YORK STEWART INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

A new Metro-North Railroad stop near the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets in Central Valley could help what Cuomo described as “one of the really impossible traffic situations in the world.” “We’re putting a MetroNorth station at Woodbury Common, so you don’t have to drive, you can take the train,” Cuomo said. The high-end outlet mall, operated by Simon Property Group LP, features brands such as Gucci and Prada among its 240 stores. Those shops draw 13 million visitors a year. But the traffic on its corridor, which includes Routes 17 and 32, as well as the New York State Thruway, is enough to scare off potential shoppers in Cuomo’s estimation. “Whenever my daughters ask me to take them there, I come up with any excuse not to have to sit through that traffic,” he said. The train station proposal would be a new addition to $150 million in investments the governor has promised to improve traffic flow near the outdoor mall. Construction has already started on some of that work. Plans include an expan-

The Newburgh-based regional airport is now the New York Stewart International Airport. Cuomo announced the name change during his speech at Marist. That was a day after the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the airport's operator, made it official in a news release. The new name may make the airport’s location more recognizable to foreign travelers. Norwegian Air last year added routes to the airport from Dublin, Ireland, Belfast, Northern Ireland, Edinburgh, Scotland and Bergen, Norway. Cuomo said the number of passengers at Stewart has grown 60 percent since Norwegian added the international routes. “I think there’s a lot of growth for that airport to drive the economy here,” Cuomo said. “You shouldn’t have to fly to New York City or ship goods to New York City to get them to the Hudson Valley. Let’s use Stewart.” To build on that growth, Cuomo promised $36 million in investment at the airport. Part of that money will fund a 20,000-square-foot U.S. Customs inspection area for international passengers.

Dick’s Sporting Goods will no longer sell assault-style rifles In a direct response to the high school killings in Parkland, Florida, two weeks ago, the Chairman and CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods announced that all of his stores would no longer sell assault-style rifles. Dick’s Sporting Goods has stores in White Plains, Yonkers, West Nyack, Poughkeepsie, Danbury and Norwalk. Edward W. Stack, chairman and CEO of Dick’s, said in the announcement that Dick’s stores had already removed them following the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in December 2012, “but we will now remove them from sale at all 35 Field & Stream stores,” which are a subsidiary of the national sporting goods chain. Stack also said, “We will no longer sell firearms to anyone under 21 years of age. We will no longer sell high-capacity magazines. We never have and never will sell bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly.” In an interview on CNN, Stack said, "The hunt business is an important part of the business, no doubt about it. And we know there will be some backlash." Stack said in no uncertain terms in his announcement that his decision was based on the killings of the 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14 in Florida. “We at Dick’s Sporting Goods are deeply disturbed and saddened by the tragic events in Parkland. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their loved ones. But thoughts and prayers are not enough. We have tremendous respect and admiration for the students organizing and making their voices heard regarding gun violence in schools and elsewhere in our country. We have heard you. The nation has heard you.” Stack also acknowledged

that one of his stores had sold a shotgun to the shooter of the Parkland attack. “It was not the gun, nor type of gun, he used in the shooting. But it could have been,” Stack said. “Clearly this indicates on so many levels that the systems in place are not effective to protect our kids and our citizens.” Ed Stack’s father, Dick, founded the Pennsylvaniabased chain in 1948 in Binghamton. Stack asked that lawmakers enact “common sense gun reform.” He called for lawmakers to pass laws banning assault-style firearms, raising the minimum age to buy firearms to 21, banning high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, requiring universal background checks that include “relevant mental health information and previous interactions with the law,” creating a universal database of those banned from buying firearms and closing the loophole that allows private sales and gun shows that circumvent the necessity for background checks. “We deeply believe that this country’s most precious gift is our children. They are our future. We must keep them safe.” Dick’s sales revenue for 2017 was $7.9 billion.

FLUOR TO LAY OFF 85 IN POUGHKEEPSIE

Fluor Corp., a multinational engineering and construction firm based in Irving, Texas, announced that it will lay off 85 employees in Poughkeepsie this year. The layoffs will begin on May 2, according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) filed in February. According to the WARN notice, the work will be transitioned to Jones Lang LaSalle, an international real estate service firm. Meanwhile, Fluor also

announced that it will lay off 54 employees in Boulder, Colorado, this year, according to a notice filed with that state. On Feb. 20, Fluor reported revenue for the fourth quarter rose 0.8 percent to $5.03 billion. This was up from $4.99 billion last year. Profit for the fourth quarter was $60.3 million, or $0.43 per share. That was down from $70.5 million, or $0.50 per share, in last year’s fourth quarter. Fluor had been contracted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to help restore power to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated the island.

PHELPS OPENS $12M RADIOLOGY SUITE

Phelps Hospital has opened a $12 million upgraded interventional radiology suite on the Sleepy Hollow hospital's main floor. The investment helped the hospital upgrade 13-yearold equipment with a suite that includes 3-D mammography, new CT scan and MRI machines and other interventional suite technology upgrades. Interventional radiology is often an alternative to surgical treatment for many conditions. The specialty uses imaging technology such as X-rays, ultrasounds and CT scans to see inside the body for diagnosis or treatment. In a news release announcing the upgrade, Phelps Hospital said the investment was just the latest upgrade to its facilities since it joined the Northwell Health system. “Phelps’ investment in this cutting-edge technology is a testament to our commitment to our patients and the quality of care they receive,” said Daniel Blum, president and CEO of Phelps. “Our highly skilled physicians excel in using these advanced techniques to save patients’ lives, decrease hospital stays and provide phenomenal care.” Phelps is a 238-bed nonprofit community hospital founded in 1956. The hospital joined the Long Island-based Northwell Health system in 2014. Formerly the North Shore-LIJ Health System, Northwell is the state's largest health care provider. — Bob Rozycki, Aleesia Forni, and Ryan Deffenbaugh

Citrin Cooperman Corner Your Business Exit Strategy – Sink or Swim? BY DULCIDIA LAZZARO AND AUTUMN ESCHMANN

DULCIDIA LAZZARO AND AUTUMN ESCHMANN Although most business owners (88%) believe their family will control their business in five years, statistics show that 33% survive to transfer to the next generation, and only 10- 15% continue to the third generation.1 There are many reasons why these statistics exist. Biggest reason why businesses fail to establish a system to assume a smooth exit from their business? Lack of planning! With proper planning, you can create a successful and effective  strategic plan. Here are a few key steps which will guide you on a path of a successful exit. PLAN EARLY Creating, designing, and implementing any plan will take time. Time will provide you the ability to be pro-active as opposed to reactive. Plans must be put in place with the flexibility for adaptation and change, and they should be reevaluated consistently and monitored to adapt to new circumstances. They must include a contingency strategy in case of sudden events — like disability or death. EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION Communication is key in all aspects of succession planning and is essential in order to keep your strategic plan unified and aligned. One way to accomplish this is by seeking input from involved family members, key employees, and professionals. Avoiding friction between key employees and family involved in the business is vital. Consistent communication can greatly help to make sure everyone is working towards the same goals, with the same enthusiasm, for success and trust between parties. ESTABLISH GOALS AND ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS What do you envision the future to look like? What are your business goals? What are your retirement goals? Do you need to sell the business? Are you or your spouse dependent on the business for cash flow? Identify early what you are looking to accomplish — both personally and professionally. Identifying goals of next generation management, retirement goals, and the importance of keeping the family business in the family, are all factors that need to be addressed early in the process. CREATE THE SUCCESSION PLAN Once you have established the goals and objectives, you can then take the next step to create a successful strategic plan. There are a number of options for a successful exit: - Family Succession - Transfer the business to a family member(s) - Internal Succession - Sell or transfer the business to one or more key employees or co-workers, or sell to employees using an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) - External Succession - Sell the business to an outside third party, engage in an Initial Public Offering (IPO), strategic merger, or investment by an outside party

A SUCCESSFUL TRANSITION The process of exiting a business successfully, no matter what path, is a challenging one for all. Once a decision is made to follow a particular succession path, all parties must be prepared for the transition. There has to be unity around the goals and objectives. This begins with identifying successors, and identifying active and non-active roles and responsibilities for all family members. Working together in a cohesive manner will help members make joint decisions about how to manage the company, and will ultimately deliver success. A successful transition could also result in a lower tax impact for all parties with proper tax planning. COMMON MISTAKES Most business owners don’t think about who will run the business in the future; they are too busy with the day-to-day operations of the business. It is essential that a business owner avoid putting it off to “someday” (procrastinating), trying to do too much too soon, not having specific goals, or trying to do it alone by not seeking collaborative professional help. Owners who do not plan may inadvertently give up control of their legacy. They could be forced to sell the business at a much lower price than its true value, have disputes over its control, and be subject to excessive taxes. When one of the owners dies, does their ownership transfer to someone with no connection to the business? Will that person want to be involved? Will they have the capabilities to be involved? Will they be accepted by other owner and key employees? These situations are ripe with potential conflict and friction that could devastate the future of the company. With thoughtful, detailed planning now, all of this could be avoided. FOCUS ON THE FUTURE, NOW! Citrin Cooperman works with business owners every day who focus on their company’s dayto-day business objectives and are challenged to make the time for succession planning. With careful preparation, a business owner can work with a group of advisors such as accountants, lawyers, and business and insurance brokers to start taking the steps now, to plan for a successful exit in the future. UPCOMING EXIT PLANNING SEMINAR Citrin Cooperman, along with the XPX Exit Planning Exchange, are proud to present, “Guide to Building Your Successful Exit Plan,” on Thursday, May 24, 2018, at the Fairview Country Club. This seminar will give you an exclusive opportunity to hear from business advisors on the importance of succession planning and provide insight on creating a  successful and effective  strategic plan for your business.

Mayor—

1

mayor’s post in January, don’t make the mistake of calling him a politician. “I’m nowhere near a politician,” he said, laughing. “I’m an elected official.” In November, Rainey ousted two-term Republican Frank Catalina to secure the seat, making the then 33-yearold the youngest person to be the city’s mayor, according to the city’s Democratic Party. “I think people get lost in realizing the role of a mayor,” he said. “We’re supposed to be the face of our city. I think other mayors have gotten to the point where they think they’re not just the face of the city, but they are the city.” Rainey previously served as a member of the city’s Common Council, a position he was elected to in 2015. If you ask him, he’ll tell you he decided to try his hand at politics “for all the wrong reasons.” “I feel like a lot of people who get into politics either don’t have or have forgotten the morals that they’re supposed to have to conduct business in these positions. And I feel there are so many people who should be in politics,” he said. Rainey said he was persuaded to run for office because of what he saw as a negative political climate

Student Loans—

1

when a significant chunk of your income is already set aside for monthly loan payments? “It is difficult for anyone who is not in the later stages of their career to pay a large monthly student loan payment,” Bush said. “One of the biggest impacts of my student loan payments was my ability to purchase a home, since your expendable income is significantly reduced.” New York Life’s program provides employees up to $10,200 over five years to help pay back student loans. Similar to most student loan assistance programs, the company provides the payments monthly. Angela Murawski, vice president of human resources for New York Life, said about 700 employees have signed up for the program in its first four months.

in Peekskill. “There’s someone who’s supposed to be where I’m at right now who wouldn’t do it because of what they’ve seen in politics. So when people say things about me or talk about me, I take it and I smile, knowing that I’m not the best mayor in the world but hoping that the best mayor in the world actually watches what I’m going through and steps up to the plate,” he said. Rainey considers Peekskill his hometown, though because of his father’s occupation in the Air Force, his childhood included residences in New York, Germany and Las Vegas. Rainey graduated from Peekskill High School in 2002 and has lived in New York since. Along with his elected position, Rainey is also president of NOO Moves Entertainment, which he founded in 2010. “I’m an M.C., a hip hop lyricist, a writer,” he said. Those skills were showcased in a 2011 video he posted to YouTube, “My City Peekskill,” an ode to the city he calls home. “When I would tell people I was from Peekskill, they’d say, ‘What? Where’s that?’” he recalled. In the video, Rainey — or “Noodle” as he is referred to in the video — takes viewers

on a tour of the city and raps about life in Peekskill. “That video opened doors for me,” he said. Garnering more than 34,000 views, the video led to Rainey working as an opening act for musicians touring across the country. In addition to music, another strong passion for Rainey is education, something that stems from his very first job as a teenager. At 14, Rainey worked for a summer youth program that would offer free lunches to Peekskill students each weekday. On Fridays, the students would venture to various attractions in the area: the Bronx Zoo, a movie

theater, a day at the roller skating rink. “Ever since then, I’ve had a soft spot for kids.” Rainey, who also worked as a program instructor at The Kiley Youth Center on Main Street in Peekskill, added that he hopes to work closely with local school systems in the future. “When your education’s reputation goes up, everything goes up,” he said. “It’s unfortunate that there are people who are in higher positions that don’t have the priority of education on their radar. To some people, they just say, ‘Let’s just bring in new development.’”

While Rainey said his administration will continue to work to attract new development to the city, he said he will pay closer attention to how that new development will impact the local community, particularly the school system. “You don’t want people to feel like they can come here but they can’t live here, because the education is not that good,” he said. He will also focus on working to improve parking in the city, something he said “is an issue we’ve consistently had here.” He said the city will soon release a parking study that will outline how those

“We believe that student loan debt can delay many important life events, including buying a home or starting a family,” Murawski said. “We thought it important to provide real assistance to lessen the burden of this debt by helping to accelerate the repayment process.” Smaller employers have added the benefit as well, such as the city of Memphis and the online textbook rental service Chegg. New York Life’s program is open to employees from the date they are hired at either of New York Life Insurance Co., or its affiliated New York Life Investment Management and Index IQ. The company’s partner on the program is Student Loan Genius. The Texasbased technology company handles the distribution of the benefit and offers online tools and counseling for managing payments. Murawski

said about 1,400 New York Life employees are just using the advisory tools, without seeking contributions from the company. Along with Student Loan Genius, software and service companies such as Gradifi and Tuition.io have jumped into the market to help employers manage student loan assistance benefits. Student Loan Genius’ other clients include Ralph Lauren Corp. and Pinterest. Gradifi announced in December that it had partnered with more than 300 businesses. The company was acquired by First Republic Bank in 2016. Tuition.io, meanwhile, manages more than $2 billion in student loan debt for companies it said range from Fortune 500s to startups and public entities. Student loan help is still far from being a standard employee benefit. In a 2017

survey of its members, the national Society for Human Resource Management found just 4 percent of the 3,000 responding companies offered student loan assistance. That’s still up from 2015 — when it was 3 percent. That number is expected to increase. The federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau published a report in August 2017 that highlighted student loan assistance programs as an innovative benefit strategy likely to grow. Ibraiz Tarique, director of HR programs at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business, said it’s important to view student loan assistance as part of an overall talent strategy that employers are adopting. Companies are often maxed out in the salaries they can offer to attract top talent, so they are getting creative with employee benefits.

“They’re trying to figure out ways to differentiate themselves and this is an emerging tool in attracting talent,” Tarique said. “And I think it will pick up as more companies, and smaller companies, realize it’s an important tool they can use.” That could apply especially to Westchester County, which has a mix of industries requiring advanced degrees and skills, including headquarters for several Fortune 500 companies. Those employers are all competing for workers at a time when Westchester’s unemployment rate hovers below 5 percent. “The labor market has tightened, so the battle for skilled people is increasing,” said Amy Allen, vice president of the Westchester County Association business group. Allen grouped student loan assistance with other employee incentives, such as a signing bonus and tuition

issues could be remedied. “I don’t want us to be like Manhattan in the sense of parking. I don’t want people to not be able to drive from the train station to the store because they can’t find a place to park.” With his background in music and entertainment, Rainey looks forward to the recently announced economic development initiative, Art Industry Media. A division of The Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, the initiative aims to promote Peekskill and the surrounding area as a media hub for the lower Hudson Valley. “As an artist, I was so excited,” he said. He is also enthusiastic about the city’s Common Council, which includes three Democrats that were also elected in November. “They look at these projects as, ‘That’s great, but is it healthy? Is it environmentally safe? Is it going to benefit our city?’” he said. Rainey said he will approach new developments proposed for the city with “caution and care.” “If you come here with a plan, pretend you live here. What would you want to see here?” he said. “When you come here, you have people who actually care about this city.” reimbursement for pursuing further education. “Employers are always looking for ways to invest in their employees,” Allen said. “For millennials, the student debt issue is a huge one. So, if you want to have qualified people, this could be an incentive.” Matthew Alfieri, an adjunct professor at the Manhattanville College School of Business specializing in human resources, said student loan assistance should appeal not only to companies in competitive industries, but also ones that require continuity in their workforce. Engineers, for example, often require intense training when joining a new company. “It could take you 6 to 12 months alone just to learn your job as an engineer,” Alfieri said. “So a lot of employers are going right » STUDENT LOANS

IN COURT

Niece sues owners of La Crémaillère alleging mortgage forgery La Crémaillère, the renowned French restaurant in the Banksville section of North Castle, is being accused of cooking up an unsavory financial fare. Judy Smith, a niece of restaurateurs Barbara and Robert Meyzen, said she loaned them $155,000 in 2013 and secured the debt with a mortgage. County records show that the mortgage has been satisfied. But that document, Smith said, was forged and she is still owed nearly $153,000. “The only parties who would gain from the forgery,” she alleges, are “the Meyzens.”

L E G A L

Attempts to reach the Meyzens for comment were unsuccessful. La Crémaillère is housed in a 1750s farmhouse on Bedford-Banksville Road, on the Connecticut border. Vanity Fair recently described it as “home to the finest French country cooking on the East Coast.” It opened in 1949, and Robert Louis Meyzen, who trained as a waiter and maître d’ at the renowned Le Pavillon and who opened La Caravelle in Manhattan, took over in 1962. He died in 1995. His son and current co-owner, Robert Olivier Meyzen, began working at La

Crémaillère in 1975. Its reputation for excellence, rooted in classic French country cooking, has drawn a celebrity audience over the years, including,Vanity Fair said, Tom Brokaw, Glenn Close, Andrew Cuomo, Tommy Hilfiger, Mick Jagger, Billy Joel and Regis Philbin. Smith filed the lawsuit on Feb. 15 in Westchester Supreme Court in White Plains, under the name of her limited partnership, L&J Smith Investments of Fort Worth, Texas. Besides the Meyzens and La Crémaillère, she names as defendants Meyzen Family Realty Associates and Celtic Bank Corp. of Salt Lake City. The Meyzens mortgaged the restaurant property to Celtic Bank Corp. in September 2013, to secure a $900,500 promissory note. Two months later, Smith loaned them $155,000, and in early 2014 she secured her loan with a mortgage. Last October, a satisfaction of mortgage was filed with the Westchester County Clerk, signed by Judy Smith and attested to by Texas notary public Sheron V. Keils. The signatures, Smith claims, are forgeries. “I have not,” she states in an affidavit, “done

anything to release or discharge any mortgage related to La Crémaillère restaurant.” Keils also submitted an affidavit, stating that she did not notarize the document. Even the notary seal, showing her commission expiring in November, is not authentic. “I have never had a commission that expired on Nov. 13, 2018,” she said. Smith alleges that the mortgage release was filed so that a new lender would provide financing to pay off the Celtic Bank debt. The new lender, who is not named, withdrew financing “when the fact that the release was a forged and fraudulent document” was presented. Smith is asking the court to nullify the mortgage release, reinstate the mortgage and her status as a lienholder against the property, and to award $50,000 in damages.

Bridgeport Biodiesel 2 LLC, a Connecticut firm that recycles used cooking oil, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization. The company declared $32,000 in assets and $2.4 million in liabilities in a petition filed on Feb. 11 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in White Plains. Its production facility is in Bridgeport, and founder and CEO Brent Baker lives in Pearl River in Rockland County. Bridgeport Biodiesel and its parent company, Sustainable Biodiesel Co., are also affiliated with Tri-State Biodiesel in the Bronx. The Bridgeport Biodiesel website describes Sustainable as a “social enterprise” and the largest cooking-oil-to-biodiesel-fuel company on the East Coast. It has operations in California, District of Columbia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The website states that Baker was instrumental in helping to pass a New York City law requiring the use of biodiesel in all heating oil sold in the city. It says Sustainable was the first company to sell biofuel to private fleets in the city and to set up a biodiesel pump at a gas station in the city. In bankruptcy filings, the National Development Council’s Grow America Fund claims it is owed $2.4 million. The New York City nonprofit helped finance construction of a refinery at the Bridgeport Eco-Industrial Park in 2014. The list of the 20 largest unsecured creditors does not show amounts for their claims, suggesting that liabilities could come in significantly higher than shown in the first-day summary. Bridgeport Biodiesel 2 had gross revenue of $750,000 in 2016 and $3.3 million last year. — Bill Heltzel

Keeping a watchful eye on market volatility

V

olatility is defined as changeable, mercurial or flighty. And that certainly is an apt description of the stock market over the course of the past couple of weeks and what we can expect to see in the near future. Although the wild swings of the first full week of February are likely past us now, there still is a lingering uncertainty about what comes next, and much of that uncertainty centers on the myriad explanations about what caused the volatility in the first place. Some early comments placed the blame on fears of rising interest rates, due in part to

increases in wages, which were thought to be the precursors of inflation. Still others wrote it off as a long-awaited correction that some analysts say has been looming over the market for years. That speculation was compounded in the early phase of the market drop by references to the 2008 selloff, which represented trading that amounted to trillions in investment value. Investigation into that period of volatility showed that vulnerabilities in the U.S. financial system were exacerbated by intentional “bear” raids on the stock market by foreign investors, resulting in massive sell-offs that threat-

ened the U.S. economy. Whether a similar situation exists currently is not yet known, but one factor that existed a decade ago does not hold as much influence on markets today — the price of oil and its availability outside of OPEC. The U.S. has steadily moved from being a net importer of petroleum products to a major exporter at the same time the world demand for oil has dropped somewhat, and the U.S. could become a net exporter in the next five years or sooner. When OPEC countries cut exports, the U.S. now responds by increasing exports by the same amount or slightly more, which lately

has maintained oil prices in the high $50 per barrel to low $60 per barrel range. The increase in U.S. exports has been offsetting OPEC reductions for more than a year. While the volatility appears to have smoothed somewhat, there still are events on the horizon that could either settle frayed nerves or lead to a new round of selling and buying. In the first two weeks of March, government reports will be issued on construction spending; manufacturing shipments, inventories and orders; manufacturing and trade and new residential construction, among others. And on March 20 and 21, the Federal Reserve Open Market Committee will meet and issue a summary of economic projections and a decision on if they will raise interest rates. Regardless of what caused the extreme shifts in the stock market, it has nonetheless appeared to settle some 1,000 points below its recent high, and that in turn has resulted in some attractive buys for

the well-informed bargain hunter. For instance, stocks listed in the S&P 500 index recently were trading at 16.5 times their earnings, while only two weeks earlier they were trading at 18.1 times those earnings. Some stocks are trading lower due to the overall decline in the market, but some are trading lower for other reasons ranging from the health of the sector to the performance of individual companies. The key is knowing which is which, and the key to that is solid, informed research. There are important questions to ask: “What’s more important to me, risk mitigation or performance?” “Have I established reasonable risk vs. return parameters in light of low-interest rates?” If already retired, “can I afford a big market downturn?” “With life expectancy increasing, how much is enough?” As with any other state of the market, bull, bear or somewhere in-between, those who profit from these oppor-

tunities are those industrious individuals who take the time and effort to fully acquaint themselves with the new realities and make sure they are on solid ground before making their choices.

Family-owned businesses honored at awards ceremony

“T

here’s something about growing up in a family-owned business that sets you apart,” said Kate Hampford Donahue, president and CEO of Hampford Research Inc. “I certainly didn’t realize it at the time, but it’s only now that I really appreciate what that experience really gave me.” Donahue is the second generation to run the Stratford-based custom-chemical manufacturing firm. Following the death of her father, Jack Hampford, Donahue took over the company that he started more than 30 years ago. “Family-owned businesses are the backbone of our economy, and celebrating our successes is really a wonderful way to bring attention to all of our contributions,” said Donahue, who was a 2017 honoree of the awards. Donahue was the keynote speaker at the annual Westfair Communications Family-Owned Business Awards on Feb. 27. The event, presented by the Westchester and Fairfield

County Business Journals and WAG Magazine, honored 20 businesses from Westchester and Fairfield counties More than 200 attendees gathered for the awards ceremony, which was held at 1133 Westchester Ave. in White Plains. “The 2018 Family-Owned Business Awardees did not disappoint. Their family-business histories and successes were absolutely inspiring,” said Westfair Communications Publisher Dee DelBello. “Two thoughts were loud and clear: families matter and there’s nothing better than working hard together.” Many of the awardees took the time to address the most satisfying moment they’d experienced as part of their family-owned businesses. “The easy answer is the moment recently that I realized that we’re still married, we survived,” said Dr. Paul J. Sutera, who co-owns Sutera Family Dentistry in Katonah with his wife, Dr. Nancy Treyz Sutera. For Bedford’s Bradsell Painting & Carpentry, that moment was when the company bought its first office

space outside of the owners’ home. It was the yearlong celebration of its centennial anniversary for Cornell’s True Value Hardware. Rick Mola, owner of Fisherman’s World in Norwalk, said the most satisfying moment of his career came when he realized third and fourth generations of his customers’ families were visiting his store. For Collins Medical Equipment, that moment occurred at the company’s 85th anniversary party in 2016, when 92-year-old Tom Collins, the second generation to run the business, stood up to address the crowd. “He was able to get up without skipping a beat, present to the whole crowd and thanked everybody for coming and talked a bit about our history,” said Bryan Collins, Tom’s grandson. “It was just a great feeling.” But for others, the choice of the most satisfying moment wasn’t so easy. “It’s hard to pick one thing,” said Anthony Aitoro of Aitoro Appliance & Electronics in Norwalk, a company that has been family owned and operated since 1948, “but my honor was » FOB AWARDS

ASK ANDI By Andi Gray

Building a sales team We need to grow sales, which means increasing the number of people we have calling on potential business opportunities. Unfortunately we can’t get people to come in to interview for sales positions. How are we going to grow if we can’t find the people we need to help us get there? THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: If you can’t find it, build it. Look further afield for candidates. Map out a process that anyone can follow. Build a profile of who you’re looking for. Always be looking. Get expert help. Develop existing employees. Start with people who know what you do. Give them time to meet with your best customers. Ask them to report back on why your

company is so important to the clients it serves. Help them to build their confidence in talking to other companies by giving them warm leads to follow up on. Closely monitor their progress, giving encouragement and appreciation every step of the way. Consider candidates outside the company who have demonstrated success in sales, even if it isn’t in your

Andi Gray

company’s field of work. Sales skills are transferrable if you provide technical back up to answer more in-depth inquiries. Look for high-energy people who like meeting and learning about other people, love overcoming challenges, are inclined to take charge, get excited by making deals and have the brains and inclination to figure out how to solve problems.

Build a marketing and sales process that stretches from creating a list of suspects to closing a deal. Model what your most successful sales people do. Define how prospects progress from one sales stage to the next. Document the tools used along the way, including phone and in-person scripts, letters, emails, and proposals. Set up a CRM (customer relationship management) system that mirrors the sales process, so that you and your emerging sales team can track prospects’ progress as they travel through the sales funnel. As you experiment with different sales candidates, keep notes on who is and who isn’t successful. Build a picture of what the right candidates look like. Try using various profiling tests to identify attributes that lead to success. Think about pools that good candidates might be swimming in, where you can cast a net and bring up several opportunities at once. Decide if you’re better off recruiting people who are right out of school, or looking for candidates with

some work experience. Define the basic experiences you’re looking for. For example, if you’re looking for candidates who have played college and high school sports, figure out if you want people with group or individual competition backgrounds. Which degrees lead to success? If you want people with work experience, think about what departments are most likely to prepare them for transitioning into sales. Think in terms of communication skills, whether they are outward facing to better interact with prospects and customers, their level of people and problem-solving skills. Look for bright, alert, self-motivated, ready-for-action candidates. Keep the search on, even when you don’t actually need someone. Candidates are out there and your chances of finding good ones go up the more you look. If you find someone and you weren’t ready to hire decide if you can make room anyway, or offer to mentor in order to stay in touch until you are

able to hire. Consider bringing on search assistance. It’s hard sourcing and weeding through piles of candidates. Yes, it will cost you money, but so will not having someone qualified on board to work in sales when you need them. Ask for references and look for firms that have a track record of delivering qualified candidates that match the employer’s specs. LOOKING FOR A GOOD BOOK?

to schools and saying we want to mold someone our way, we want them to learn our way of engineering, our product line and we hope they will become a loyal employee to us.” Laura Loughlin, owner and recruiting manager of the Loughlin Personnel staffing agency in White Plains, called it a huge potential benefit for employees, but said she hadn’t come across a local company offering student loan assistance. “It’s a great idea,” said Loughlin. “I’m all for different ways to entice people to work for our companies.” For New York Life’s Bush, the company’s contributions go straight to the principle on his student loans, helping him pay down the debt faster. The program, he said, can provide employees in similar situations to his “a little bit of relief towards an ever-growing cost of obtaining a degree.” “It’s an added benefit that helps you know that the company cares.”

Dannon in yogurt fight with former executive who left for Chobani BY BILL HELTZEL bheltzel@westfairinc.com

D

annon wants its secrets back. The White Plains yogurt-maker sued former executive Federico Muyshondt in federal court in White Plains on Feb. 21 claiming that for months he took sensitive information before resigning in January.

He did so, The Dannon Co. alleges, “in an apparent attempt to provide Dannon’s confidential information and trade secrets to its direct competitor and his new employer, Chobani LLC.” Chobani, headquartered in Norwich, New York, is not named as a defendant. Muyshondt, of Mount Kisco, could not be reached for a response.

He joined Dannon in 2010 as a sales manager. Last year he was promoted to senior vice president in charge of sales teams that cover the Eastern Seaboard and Kroger supermarkets in the Midwest. He resigned on Jan. 16, four days after he received a six-figure bonus, the complaint states. Now he works for Chobani as senior vice president — grocery, according to his LinkedIn profile. Dannon said it discovered unusual downloading activity on his company equipment after his exit interview. The company said Muyshondt had been preparing to leave at least since August, when he attended a seminar where a Chobani executive spoke. From August to the day he resigned, Dannon alleges,

Muyshondt forwarded sensitive financial information, business plans, sales staff contacts and employee noncompete agreements to his personal email account. He is accused of downloading thousands of electronic files with trade secrets onto several USB devices. He removed the SIM card from a company-issued mobile phone, containing information on contacts, and substituted a new SIM card. Four days before he resigned, he allegedly had his executive administrator provide him with emails for everyone on his sales teams, including information that would enable him to contact them outside of the company’s email system. Dannon claims that Muyshondt had no need for much of the information he forwarded or downloaded. He had no duties, for instance, that would require him to have noncompete agreements of other employees. The downloads allegedly included calendars concerning pricing promotions and sales strategies for certain products.

Chobani could use the calendars to time its own promotions, Dannon said, and reap substantial revenues at Dannon’s expense. Muyshondt had signed a confidentiality agreement when he was hired, Dannon said, and he had undergone compliance training on protecting company information. Dannon accuses its former executive of misappropriation of trade secrets and confidential information, breach of a confidentiality agreement, conversion of confidential information and equipment, and breach of his duties of loyalty and fidelity to the company. Dannon is asking for unspecified monetary damages and for an order compelling Muyshondt to return “sums paid to him during the period of his disloyalty.” It also wants the court to stop Muyshondt from using confidential information, make him return the information and company property and order him to account for any disclosures he has made of confidential information or trade secrets.

ACCOUNTING Special Report

Clients seek answers; accountants say wait IRS GUIDANCE AWAITED ON TAX REFORM BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH AND KEVIN ZIMMERMAN rdeffenbaugh@westfairinc.com kzimmerman@westfairinc.com

T

he last time major tax reform was passed — President Ronald Reagan’s Tax Reform Act of 1986 — it brought so many changes to the tax code the accounting industry nicknamed it the “Accountants Full Employment Act of 1986.” Will the latest GOPled tax reform, The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, be a similar boon to the profession? It may be too early to say. Accountants in Westchester and Fairfield

counties contacted by the Business Journal said the biggest impact so far has been a tax season in which phones are ringing constantly. “The only other time I remember being this busy this early was the 1986 reform act, which was as big a sea change as this is in many ways,” said Ronald Hegt, a tax partner at Citrin Cooperman. In a normal season, Hegt said Citrin Cooperman’s corporate business would pick up in January for regular tax filing season, while the individual would start in February. But now, as people hear about taxes almost daily on the news, Hegt said

those timelines have sped up. He’s fielded dozens of client calls about income tax, what’s deductible and whether his clients should rethink the structure of their businesses. “Not a day goes by — and, mind you, this is not a complaint — when there is not significant work to do compared to what we usually have this time of year,” Hegt said. The tax reform’s passage in December means clients are asking questions about its impact as accounting firms are already finalizing tax filings for 2017 — which are mostly unaffected by the law’s changes. “You get to the end of

February, beginning of March, and this is busy season for tax practices,” said Anthony J. Justic, a partner at Maier Markey & Justic LLP in White Plains. “You have that regular work that you always have and then on top of that you have the questions coming in, ‘Hey, what should I do for 2018 now that tax reform is passed?’” Steve Gagnon, a partner at Reynolds & Rowella LLP in New Canaan, described a “major tsunami” from corporate clients. “Corporate is a little more on top of things than individuals are — no offense meant,” Gagnon said. “On both sides there’s been a fair amount of ‘What does this mean for me for 2017?’ But going forward, 2018 will be where they really see a difference.” While Gagnon said “it’s not Black Friday” with people rushing through the office’s doors, his firm has heard from clients seeking clarifications on the law. “A lot of the questions we get start with, ‘I just read that…’ or ‘My buddy said that…’ and what follows is usually not correct,” Gagnon said. Bruce Blasnik, a part-

ner at PKF O’Connor Davies and managing partner of its Connecticut practice, said the tax bill’s signing on Dec. 22 meant a lot of people — customers and PKF staff alike — were away on vacation. But even upon their collective return, he said, “Our call volume was high, but not really as high as we’d anticipated it would be.” Most questions came from those running flowthrough companies — S corporations or partnerships — where the business’ income is allocated among the owners and then included on their individual returns. He said he expects PKF O’Connor Davies to have a fair amount of work this year advising those who run an S corporation on whether they should consider becoming a C corporation, or vice-versa. Blasnik said he expects clarification and guidance to be issued by the IRS over the next few months to help interpret some of the law’s language, which he said seemed to have been “put together pretty hastily.” “Most people are expecting to pay less taxes in 2018, except for those with really high incomes,” he said. “People with 5, 8, 10 million in income can probably expect to pay quite a bit more tax.” Wait for clarifications was the message from Justic as well. Many terms and rules will need to be better

defined, so Justic said his firm is telling clients, “Let’s stay in touch, let’s identify what the key areas are where we want clarification, and, when that clarification comes, what is our plan?” President Donald Trump said early in 2017 that the tax bill would simplify the code enough to put tax prep company H&R Block out of business. The final legislation didn’t end up so simple, but it could negatively impact parts of the accounting profession. “For the easier type of tax returns that the storefront preparers do, I could see this cutting into business over next year to 18 months. There’s going to be a whole lot more of the world being eligible for the standard deduction,” Hegt said. “But for the portion of the world that we are in, which is the sophisticated business person or wealthy individual investor types, I see it being a positive because it’s probably more work, not less.” Still, accounting firms contacted by the Business Journal didn’t necessarily expect that extra business to require a hiring spree. “It’s an opportunity to be in touch with clients and be proactive, so I think that will enhance relationships,” Justic said. “But I don’t think it will greatly grow our tax practice or anything. It’s just an opportunity for us to demonstrate why clients are using us already.”

CELEBRATING YEAR OF THE EARTH DOG Happy New Year! No, we’re not two months late in extending those wishes. Feb. 16 marked the first day of the year 4716 on the Chinese calendar, the Year of the Earth Dog. There was a New Year’s Eve celebration at the O Mandarin restaurant in Hartsdale attended by students and staff from Berkeley College in White Plains. Representatives of Westchester Community College also attended. Sixty-seven students from China’s Guizhou University’s School of Finance and Economics are studying this semester at Berkeley. The college, located in Guizhou Province, has about 2,000 students studying economics, finance, international trade, accounting and electronic business. The celebration was designed to make the students feel right at home. In speaking to the gathering, student Yang Guangrong expressed her gratitude for being welcomed into the Berkeley community. Jim Lee of Berkeley’s Luing School of Business and chairman of the college’s global alliance initiative served as emcee at the celebration and explained, “Chinese students usually celebrate the Lunar New Year with their family members, much like families in America during holidays like Thanksgiving or Christmas.”

McDonnell refers to the case McDonnell v. United States, in which the U.S. Supreme Court vacated the corruption conviction of former Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell. Among the scheduled participants are: Amiee Ely, of the National Attorneys General Training and Research Institute; Alexandra Shapiro, defense attorney for former New York Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos; Dan Stein, partner Mayer, Brown & Platt; Kathleen Clark, professor at Washington University of St. Louis; Allen Dickerson, director of litigation at the Institute for Free Speech; Erica Orden of The Wall Street Journal; Jennifer Rodgers, executive director of the Center for the Advancement of Public Integrity at Columbia Law School; Carrie Cohen, partner at Morrison and Forester; Daniel G. Cort chief of the New York Attorney General’s Public Integrity Bureau; Ben Gershman, professor at Pace Law; and Steve Cohen, former counsel to Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The luncheon keynote speaker is Richard French of RNN-TV.

FORUM ON AGING IN PLACE There’s considerable interest in making it possible for more of the estimated 10,000 people who turn 65 each day in the U.S. to age gracefully at home. In Westchester, eight aging in place groups, called “villages,” have been formed. Speakers from four of them, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow plan to participate in a forum at the Irvington Public Library. The event is scheduled for March 21 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. The Irvington Public Library is at 12 S. Astor St. According to AARP, the movement has been underway for about 15 years and most aging in place “villages” charge an annual membership fee. Among the services offered are help finding in-home care, handymen to make repairs, drivers and referrals to professional services.

STUDENT RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTED AT NYMC

Itzhak Perlman

MARQUEE NAMES SPOTLIGHTED AT THE BURNS Creative talent behind the revival of the Broadway classic “Children of a Lesser God,” which is due to begin previews on March 22 at Studio 54 in Manhattan, paid a visit to the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville recently. Director Kenny Leon along with producer Hal Luftig and actors Anthony Edwards, Kecia Lewis and John McGinty were on hand for a free screening of the 1986 film adaptation of the play, followed by a question and answer session moderated by four-time Tony Award-winning Broadway producer Dori Berinstein. The story involves a new speech teacher at a school for the deaf, played in the movie by William Hurt, who falls for a student played by deaf actress Marlee Matlin. Matlin

won the Academy Award as best actress for her performance. More marquee names will be featured in upcoming programming at the Burns Center. The Jewish Film Festival launches March 13 and runs through March 29. It includes 41 titles. Opening night will feature the documentary “Itzhak,“ a portrait of violinist Itzhak Perlman, followed by a question and answer session with filmmaker Alison Chernick and a reception in the Jane Peck Gallery. The festival features the films of actor, director and screenwriter Alan Arkin. “The In-Laws,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” “Glengarry Glen Ross” and others will be screened. Arkin will participate in several question and answer sessions via Skype. 

NAMES TO NOTICE AT PHELPS Phelps Hospital, Northwell Health’s facility in Sleepy Hollow, reports that it has appointed Yvetale Lauture-Jerome as the new director of maternal child health. She’s a native of Haiti who moved to the U.S. in 1972. She has specialized in obstetrics for 31 years and has been involved in improving the health of distressed communities overseas, especially in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, India, China and the Philippines. Glen Taylor, Phelps’ vice president of support services, was recently elected co-president of the Greater Sleepy Hollow Tarrytown Chamber of Commerce. He has been with Phelps since 2015 and lives in Sleepy Hollow.

Information for these features has been submitted by the subjects or their delegates.

If there are any doubts that medical research is alive and well in the U.S., they could have been dispelled at the recent Medical Student Research Forum at New York Medical College in Valhalla. Students are invited to prepare poster presentations and otherwise report on the research they’ve been conducting. This year, the posters filled the Medical Education Center lobby and overflowed into the Basic Sciences Building lobby. A total of 51 presentations, in oral and poster format, preceded the keynote address by flu vaccine expert Doris J. Bucher, associate professor of microbiology and immunology and pediatrics. In “1918-2018: 100 Years of Flu,” Bucher gave a historical look at the illness, which this year has been especially virulent. “The students did an outstanding job this year and their research was quite impressive,” said Mary Petzke, assistant professor of microbiology and immunology and director of medical student research. “Sixty-one percent of the projects were conducted under … faculty mentorship, breaking last year’s record of 50 percent.” First place for a basic sciences poster went to Leyla Cavdar for research related to bone healing. First place for a clinical sciences poster went to Medha Biswas who studied acute kidney injury. First place for an oral presentation was awarded to Donna Koo who researched congenital diaphragmatic hernia, which involves the abnormal development of the diaphragm – the muscle we use in breathing – in fetuses.

MUSIC CONSERVATORY RECEIVES NEA GRANT

The Music Conservatory of Westchester’s building in White Plains.

The Music Conservatory of Westchester has been awarded a $10,000 Challenge America grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. It will be used to support a public art project. Working with Cuban-American artist Jonathan Villoch, the conservatory will stage the Colors of Music Student Art Contest. The winner will help design and install a mural representing a collaborative interpretation of multicultural music. “When the conservatory moved into this building in 2001, we immediately envisioned a public mural celebrating the joys of music in visual form,” said the conservatory’s Executive Director Jean Newton. The contest gets underway March 19 and is open to students in grades 7 to 12 living in Westchester.

Aharon most recently was campus chief of cardiac surgery at Main Line Health in Pennsylvania.

370 Manville Road in Pleasantville.

Lou and Debra Budetti, founders and co-owners of ERA Insite Realty Services, have opened the firm’s newest office in Pleasantville. The company has been headquartered in White Plains since 1985, with additional offices in Bronxville and Thornwood. When Century 21 Haviland became part of ERA Insite, the company acquired Haviland’s office space at 370 Manville Road in Pleasantville. Principal broker Vincent D’Addato and approximately 30 personnel made the move to Insite. “This is a great opportunity for us to strengthen our footprint in the Pleasantville and Mount Pleasant markets, as well as surrounding communities,” said Lou Budetti.
