Storm clouds over utilities LATIMER CALLS FOR RESIGNATIONS; CUOMO SEEKS INVESTIGATION OF CON ED, NYSEG BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH rdeffenbaugh@westfairinc.com

W

estchester County Executive George Latimer is calling for Consolidated Edison Inc. and New York State Electric & Gas

Corp. to clean house. Meanwhile, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo wants both utilities investigated. Following what he said was an inadequate response to a major winter storm that knocked out power in huge swaths of the lower Hudson Valley, Latimer said the presidents and senior

management of both utility companies should step down. The county executive wrote a letter on March 7 asking the county’s Board of Legislators, the state Legislature delegation and municipal officials to join him at a press conference on March 9 where he plans to call for the resignations publicly. “Both ConEdison and NYSEG have fumbled the recovering effort and we as county residents can no longer stand by and accept this,” Latimer wrote. “Along with both presidents stepping down, I would also like a clean sweep of senior management, and I want a new philos» UTILITIES

TDI was in town for the first of a series of community outreach events that cover changes to the route of its $2.2 billion cross-border transmission line called the Champlain Hudson Power Express. The line would connect New York with about 1,000 megawatts of excess hydropower from the Canadian utility Hydro Quebec. For TDI, the meetings represent just the latest step in a process that extends back a decade, when the plans for the line were first formulated.

River Outpost brewery opens at The Factoria in Peekskill BY ALEESIA FORNI

raft beer enthusiasts now have a new Westchester brewery to visit and sample its products. River Outpost Brewing Co. at 5 John Walsh Blvd. held its grand opening in February, marking the latest attraction to open for business at The Factoria, the 11-acre entertainment complex at Charles Point Marina. “The grand opening went past expectations, from an early hour to a late hour,” said John Sharp, one of the partners behind The Factoria who also owns downtown Peekskill eateries Birdsall House and Gleason’s. “It was great. We really packed them in and people came from all over.” The brewery offers a menu of bar food and eight beers on tap that are brewed on site, from pale ales to porters. “Variety is the key. We have people coming for a lot of different reasons, so it’s got to be a good mix of beers,” said Justin Sturges, head brewer at River Outpost. The brewery is on the ground floor of The Factoria, next to bocce and shuffleboard courts, a 50-game arcade and gateway to the four-story obstacle course. “We all really believe in craft beer and what it brings to business,” Sharp said. “And for this place, it’s such a huge compound, we thought the brewery would be a great addition.” Large windows at the rear of the brewery give patrons an up-close view of the equipment that Sturges uses to create their brews. “It’s really cool because I’m seeing people enjoy the stuff I’m making as I’m making it,” he said. For now, River Outpost's beers are only sold on site, though Sharp said that might change in the future. “Right now, it is just to supply this big machine here,” Sharp said, gesturing to The Factoria. The $5 million to $6.5 million Charles Point development is led by Sharp, along with Captain Lawrence Brewery founder Scott Vaccaro and fellow Peekskill restaurateur Louis Lanza. Diamond Properties co-owner William Diamond is also part of the project, having signed a 50-year lease for the property with the Peekskill Industrial Development Agency in 2014.

“We came up with the name The Factoria — the factory — for the whole entire compound because we tried to put as many production-type local things as we could,” he said. “The food is locally sourced. It’s all about making everything in-house.” Fin and Brew, a seafood-centric eatery on the top floor, opened last fall. The 14,000-square-foot upper floor is also home to a catering facility, event space, outdoor seating area and two full-service bars. Also last year, the 40,000-squarefoot entertainment center Spins Hudson welcomed its first adventure-seekers. The ground-floor includes an indoor and outdoor aerial ropes course, which includes more than 70 elements, from monkey bars and zip lines to balance beams. There is also a 5,000-square-

foot laser tag area. In the short time that it has been open, River Outpost has already overcome a significant obstacle in the form of the bomb cyclone that recently rocked the region, leaving thousands of homes and businesses, including The Factoria without power. “Saturday morning was triage,” Sharp recalled. “We started at about 7 a.m. calling people, seeing what we could do or if we could get the power back on. It was like dealing with one problem after another. Once you solved one problem, you realized there were two more problems to solve.” Despite the outage, the partners managed to bring three generators onto the property to power enough of The Factoria to host a 250-person event on Saturday. “We pulled it off,” Sharp said. “Everybody was happy.” The brewery even opened for

business later that evening. “Pushing beer doesn’t need power,” Sturges said. “You need lights on to be able to see the beer, but the beer will move no matter what.” Still, the four-day-long power outage took its toll. “We had 400 people in here last Saturday (for the grand opening), and then to lose that momentum for the next weekend is kind of a bummer,” Sharp said. “We decided to close down Sunday, because it got to be too much. We were all exhausted.” Despite the hectic weekend, the team behind River Outpost have a number of initiatives they look forward to in the future, which include opening up an outdoor deck with patio seating, a separate bar and live music. Sturges, who spent the better part of a decade at Captain Lawrence before coming to River Outpost, is particularly enthusiastic about plans to gear the brewery’s offerings toward the food served at Fin and Brew. “One that I’ve been talking about is that we’re going to use green strawberries, unripe strawberries, and basil in a beer, and they’re going to use some of those green strawberries to pickle as well, to use in their dishes,” he said. “Everything here, it’s all connected,” Sharp added.

Default judgment when car broker misses court hearing

W

estchester Export Capital has won a default judgment against former client and car broker Albert “Alex” Golant. Golant borrowed $4.7 million from the White Plains company to buy 54 cars for export. Then he, and many of the cars, went missing. Westchester Export Capital filed the lawsuit in federal court last May. Golant had been caught previously for stealing $3 million in a car brokering swindle. He was on supervised release for his 2016 conviction for wire fraud and operating an illegal gambling business. He is a self-professed addicted gambler who owed $1.5 million to loan sharks. And then there was his two days of testimony in 2015 against Russian mobster Michael “Fat Mike” Danilovich and his cooperation with the FBI against Mikhail “Russian Mike” Zemlyansky. Danilovich was sentenced to 25 years in prison for racketeering, securities fraud, money laundering and other crimes. Zemlyansky got 15 years for racketeering and other crimes. Golant was born in Belarus and moved to Wisconsin at age 9. He gravitated to the car-brokering business, according to court records, and to high stakes gambling. Westchester Export agreed in 2016 to advance up to $5 million to Timeless Auto Group to buy cars for export. Golant was manager of the Wisconsin company and Tedmund Wayne Blankschein was president. Last May, Timeless Auto Group failed to make a $85,250 payment. Golant was gone and so were the cars, though some were traced to a warehouse in Industry, California. U.S. District Judge Cathy Seibel ordered Golant and Blankschein to appear for a hearing on Feb. 21 to explain why a default judgment should not be entered against them for not answering Westchester Export Capital’s complaint. They did not appear. Seibel entered the judgment and ordered that an inquest be held to determine the damages. The car brokering mess has also entangled at least one third party. Shady W. Fares of Oak Creek, Wisconsin, bought a 2017 Mercedes-Benz sport utility truck last April, according to a letter he sent to Seibel, with the intention of selling it to Golant for a $4,000 profit within 45 days. He did so, he said, on the recommendations of several people who had dealt with Golant, including managers at a Mercedes dealership. » IN COURT

EPA agrees to $35K payment in $7M mercury cleanup in Rye Brook BY BILL HELTZEL bheltzel@westfairinc.com

T

he U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has sued a West Virginia company for $7 million for allegedly disposing scrap mercury at a backyard refinery in Rye Brook and agreed to settle the matter for $35,829. Steel of West Virginia Inc., a 111-year-old steel TWB Westenberg products company based in Huntington, was WCBJ sued last month in federal court in White Plains w violating x 7.125”environmental h for7.375” allegedly laws. 10/30/17 In 1988, the lawsuit states, the company replaced furnace equipment that contained mercury and it arranged shipment of 179 pounds of mercury to Port Refinery Co. in Rye Brook for treatment or disposal. A third-party scrap dealer allegedly paid Steel of West Virginia $1.35 per pound for the

mercury or about 70 percent below market rate. Steel's shipment was a tiny part of the overall contamination at Port Refinery. The company accepts responsibility for its actions, according to a consent decree it entered with the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The government has asked federal court to approve the consent decree following its publication in the Federal Register and a 30-day comment period. The EPA classifies mercury as a hazardous substance that can cause severe neurological and behavioral disorders. Port Refinery, despite its industrial-sounding name, was actually a backyard operation in a residential neighborhood close to Blind Brook High School. For 20 years, Edmund Barbera, a chemist, operated a laboratory in the garage behind his house at 55 Hillandale Road, processing mercury to sell as dental fillings. The lab was discovered in 1991 and designated as a federal Superfund environmental site. Barbera died in 1995. The EPA spent $6.4 million in the 1990s to demolish the garage and a cabana and to remove 6,500 tons of contaminated soil and debris.

In 2004, more contamination was found along a path between the Arbors condominiums and the high school. Soil in one location, for instance, contained mercury at 1,300 parts per million, or 130 times greater than a government standard. Mercury was also detected in the groundwater and three ponds. Empty bottles and cylinders used for shipping mercury were found in two underground vaults by the house. The EPA spent $7 million removing soil, demolishing the house, compensating the current homeowner, cleaning underground pipes and installing air and water filtration systems. Barbera’s widow sold the property to CBMV Real Estate Corp., Scarsdale, for $400,000 in 2001, according to county property records. CBMV quickly sold it to Martine Gerow of Stamford for $725,000, who in turn sold it a year later to Joseph E. Carvin of Port Chester for $750,000. The U.S. Attorney’s Office is demanding on behalf of the EPA that Steel be held responsible for the costs of the second cleanup. The government previously sued 10 other companies for the second cleanup, and it has recovered $601,753.

In Court—

Fares financed the purchase with a loan from Ally Bank, and he allowed a Golant associate, “Frank,” to pick up the car and store it. There was no risk, he said he was told, because the car was registered to him and there would be no clear title until he paid off the bank loan. “This was a verbal agreement,” Fares said. There was no contract or paperwork. When Golant disappeared, Fares used the car’s tracking feature to trace it to China United Transport in Walnut, California. He was unable to take the car because of the lawsuit, and he has had to continue making monthly payments on the loan.

Guilty plea may indicate $60M Ponzi scheme defendant will testify

M

itchell Klein may have changed his mind on testifying about an alleged $60 million Ponzi scheme that he and two partners are accused of running. Klein maintained the books of FKF 3, a Rockland County real estate investment fund that was forced into bankruptcy in 2010. He had refused to cooperate in a lawsuit brought by U.S. Trustee Gregory Messer to recover investors’ money, asserting his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Klein, however, was facing possible criminal charges, and his attorney began discussing a plea agreement with the U.S. Attorney’s Office. “If the plea agreement is accepted,” Klein “intends to be immediately available as a witness,” according to a letter addressed late last year to Magistrate Judge Judith C. McCarthy from Messer’s attorney. On Feb. 22, Klein was charged with withholding information on a crime. He pleaded guilty the following day. From October 2009 to February 2010, according to the one-page criminal complaint, he concealed information that one of his co-principals in FKF 3 had committed securities fraud and wire fraud. Who he protected and the details of the alleged frauds, were not disclosed. Klein and his partners, John Magee, a developer, and Burton Dorfman, a former Rockland assistant district attorney, formed

FKF 3 in 2004. Their business model, according to the 2010 lawsuit filed by Messer, was to borrow money from investors, loan it out at slightly higher interest rates and profit from the difference. Most of their investors were people with whom they had close relationships — friends, family and clients — who accepted their word that the investments were safe. They persuaded investors that they would obtain “exceptional and consistent returns safely,” Messer said, through their “superior knowledge of the real estate development, investment and construction businesses.” None of their creditors were institutions or professional investors who would have expected more information. FKF 3 operated free of oversight, the trustee claims. The fund was never registered as a security. Financial statements were never provided. In many instances, investors were not given a promissory note, mortgage, security interest or personal guarantee. Secrecy, Messer said, enabled them to play both sides of the fence. He said they loaned investors’ money to high-risk real

estate projects in which they also had ownership interests. They also paid themselves $4.2 million over four years while the fund, Messer said, was constantly insolvent. They managed to keep it afloat by borrowing more money. FKF 3 “devolved into little more than a Ponzi scheme,” the trustee alleges, “whereby the principals continued to borrow money to keep interest payments flowing to creditors and keep the fraud from being discovered. Like all Ponzi schemes, the debtor ultimately collapsed once it was unable to find sufficient new money to take out old money.” The collapse began in 2008 as the real estate market went into sharp decline. In 2010, three creditors forced FKF into involuntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The court confirmed a liquidation plan, establishing the FKF Trust with Messer as trustee. Messer alleges that the partners, in acting on both sides of loan transactions, had created impermissible conflicts of interest and had breached fiduciary duties to their investors. As of October, he claims, the damages totaled nearly $101 million.

FKF 3 had 23 loans on the books when it went into bankruptcy. Most of the portfolio was concentrated on a few projects: $30.7 million for One Madison Park condominiums in Manhattan; $7.6 million for the Aventine condominiums in Edgewater, New Jersey; $5 million for a 55-and-older community in Newtown, Connecticut; $1.6 million in Jerry’s Self-Storage in New Windsor. In each project, Messer said, the FKF 3 partners held ownership interests, ranging from 6 percent to 80 percent, for which they put up no personal money. The trustee said the partners received other “perks” from their borrowers, such as five Hoboken, New Jersey, condominiums, or cash equivalents, that went to family members. They “reaped significant benefits” from FKF 3, Messer said, without giving notice to creditors “despite the clear conflicts of interest. Jury selection for the trustee’s lawsuit is scheduled to begin on May 14 in federal court in White Plains. Klein is scheduled to be sentenced by federal Judge Kenneth M. Karas on June 26. — Bill Heltzel

Hydropower—

private equity firms. The project has already received approvals from the New York Public Service Commission and a federal presidential permit required for cross-border transmission. But construction has been held up while certain parts of the line are reworked. Any changes have to be approved by state and federal agencies. In Rockland County, TDI spokeswoman Jennifer Laird-White, a former mayor of Nyack, said the company decided to reroute to meet community concerns. The majority of the Champlain Hudson line’s two, 5-inch diameter cables will run underwater along Lake Champlain, the Hudson River and the East and Harlem rivers until reaching a substation in Queens. But the underwater route does divert onto land along the way. Those portions of the line, about 137 miles total, will be buried beneath existing rights of way. One of the underground sections is in Rockland. In 2013, TDI agreed to route the transmission line over land starting in north Rockland to avoid Haverstraw Bay, a sensitive river habitat. Under the first reroute, negotiated with environmental groups Riverkeeper and Scenic Hudson, the line emerged from the Hudson near Stony Point Park and then re-entered the river near Rockland Lake. The agreement between TDI and the two environmental groups also had the company agree to provide

$117 million over 35 years for habitat restoration and other enhancement projects in the Hudson, East and Harlem rivers and Lake Champlain. While the line may avoid sensitive areas of the Hudson, it went through a few areas that caught the attention of Rockland residents. A major source of community concern came from the line’s proximity to Waldron Cemetery, a historic graveyard for Revolutionary War soldiers. The transmission line’s new path swings a little farther inland, following Route 9W for about 7 miles between the towns of Stony Point and Clarkstown before entering the river again near Rockland Lake. The informational meeting on March 5 focused mostly on explaining the new route. Laird-White said the company wants to “inform the community as fully as possible about the particulars of the proposed new route” before applying to the Public Service Commission for modifications to its permit. The route change comes with financial benefits for the municipalities involved. In January, the towns of Stony Point, Haverstraw and Clarkstown, along with the villages of West Haverstraw and Haverstraw, signed a memorandum of understanding with the company. The agreement has each municipality sign off on the new route and provides the municipalities with $31 million from TDI for capital improvements. Of that money, $22 million

The line could serve as part of the solution for replacing the power lost by the closing of the Indian Point Energy Center. When the Buchanan nuclear plant shuts down, most likely by 2021, it will result in the loss of 2,000 megawatts, about a quarter of the electricity for New York City and Westchester County. At 1,000 megawatts, the Champlain Hudson Express could make up for about half that gap. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo seemed to refer to the project, though not by name, as a replacement to Indian Point when he announced the legal settlement that assured the plant’s closing in 2017. In a press release from his office announcing Indian Point’s closing, it stated that “several generation resources are also fully

press time. The Latimer letter marks an escalation in a week of rising tensions between elected officials and Westchester’s two utility companies. Earlier in the week, Latimer said the power providers were unprepared for the storm that hit the area March 2 and said on March 5 that it was “disgusting” parts of the county were still without power. Latimer’s call for resignations came a day after Cuomo called for an investigation into the Hudson Valley utilities.

Cuomo told reporters in a conference call on March 6 that he ordered the state’s Public Service Commission to investigate the response of power companies to the March 2 nor’easter. The investigation could lead to sanctions or fines, the governor said. As Cuomo spoke that morning, he said 74,790 customers still had no power. Almost all of those customers live in Dutchess, Putnam, Sullivan and Westchester counties. “These storms have now become the rule rather than

the exception and they have to have the capacity to quickly restore power,” Cuomo said of utility companies. “You know, I joke that I’ve been through five 100-year storms in two years. This is the new normal and they have to be ready for it. And frankly, I’m getting tired of having the same conversation with them.” Before Cuomo’s comments, Con Edison and NYSEG faced criticism from local leaders, including Latimer and U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey. Lowey said on March 6 that the “contin-

ued outages are absolutely unacceptable.” The nor’easter that hit the region on March 2 brought snow, rain and winds gusting up to 60 mph. It created the fifth worse outage in Con Edison’s history, the company said. By March 4, Cuomo declared states of emergency in Westchester, Putnam, Sullivan and Dutchess counties. About 182,000 New Yorkers were without power at the time Cuomo declared the emergency, three-quarters of whom lived in the four Hudson

Valley counties. Initial outages for Con Edison reached about 140,000 in its service area of Westchester and New York City. Con Edison reported close to 29,000 outages as the Business Journal went to press March 8. That jumped from 9,000 in Con Edison’s service area the previous day, just before a second nor’easter hit the region. Con Edison said it had almost 1,800 people involved in restoring power, including 500 mutual aid workers » » UTILITIES

Open Door opens expanded Sleepy Hollow health center

can never keep up with the demand.” The opening comes just weeks after Farrell and other community health providers breathed a sigh of a relief when Congress passed a two-year extension of the Community Health Centers Fund. The funding deadline originally expired on Sept. 30, leaving community health centers like Open Door with an uncertain future. The grant accounts for about 70 percent of the $6 million in federal funding

that Open Door receives. “We were very relieved that we were in” the legislation, Farrell said. “Hopefully they’ll re-up it before it expires like it did this time.” Open Door, which offers a sliding fee scale for those without health insurance, serves more than 55,000 patients each year throughout Westchester and Putnam counties. The new Sleepy Hollow location joins existing Open Door health centers in Brewster, Mamaroneck, Mount Kisco, Ossining and Port Chester,

in addition to six schoolbased health centers and mobile dental services. With the doors of the Sleepy Hollow facility open to the public, the health center will now shift its focus to the north, with plans to open a dental practice in Saugerties. That office would mark the organization’s first foray outside of Westchester and Putnam counties. “We have the plans and we’ve submitted them to the state,” Farrell said. “I would be thrilled if that was open in 2018.”

O

pen Door Family Medical Centers is now accepting patients at its new facility in Sleepy Hollow. The community health center opened the two-story, 12,500-square-foot facility at 300 N. Broadway earlier this month. “It took a long time,” said Lindsay Farrell, president and CEO of Open Door. “A very long time. This has been years in the making.” The building on North Broadway sat vacant for years, having previously served as a car dealership, a health club and the offices of a plumbing company. While Open Door bought it in 2011, the organization's move initially faced resistance from the village, with concerns ranging from traffic to parking issues. To remedy those concerns, Open Door's plans included the construction of an adjacent   covered parking garage along with a second, uncovered lot at 310 Broadway. “It’s exciting that we’re

finally here now,” Farrell said. Open Door has been a part of the Sleepy Hollow community for more than 30 years, having operated a facility in the village since 1985, first at 54 Beekman Ave. and later a block away at 80 Beekman Ave. “We knew we weren’t going to be able to stay on Beekman because the facility wasn’t big enough,” Farrell said. “I think this is the perfect location.” With the opening of the new facility, the 80 Beekman Ave. center will close its doors as those offices transition to North Broadway. The center, which will employ up to 40 people, will offer a range of services, including primary care, family medicine and behavioral health care. Open Door Sleepy Hollow will feature 18 medical exam rooms, laboratories and counseling space. With the new facility, the organization will also expand its residency program partnership with Phelps Hospital Northwell Health. “I’m particularly pleased that the new Sleepy Hollow location expands the capabilities of our residency

programs,” said Dr. Daren Wu, chief, medical officer at Open Door. “There is a critical shortage of primary care physicians in the United States, and yet we know just what a vital role they play in providing cost-effective, yet high-quality care. Operating out of this larger state-of-theart facility will increase our reach and extend our positive impact in the surrounding communities.” The new location will also offer educational programming areas for the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program, including a kitchen area that will be used for demonstrations by the organization’s nutritionist. “We’ll be able to show people that eating well is really not that hard,” Farrell said. “There are ways they can manage it.” The facility also offers a dental care practice with four examination rooms on the ground floor that is set to open in the coming weeks. “There’s a big demand for this,” Farrell said of the organization’s dental care practice, which operates facilities in Ossining, Port Chester and Brewster. “We

Verizon sues Philipstown for permits to build new cell tower

Here you are Building For The Future

BY BILL HELTZEL bheltzel@westfariinc.com

S

You have big plans for your business. At Country Bank, we understand access to affordable credit may be one of the biggest challenges you have to achieve those dreams. That’s why we offer a range of business loan programs including: Verizon alleges, and the zoning board relied on hearsay and anecdotes rather than on evidence. Verizon contends that the federal Telecommunications Act preempts state or local governments from blocking wireless facilities without substantial evidence and a written record. State and town laws also require timely filing of written findings, the complaint states, but the minutes and a resolution were filed several weeks after the votes and were not sent to Verizon. The lawsuit also alleges that town officials refused to turn over documents that Homeland Towers requested under the state public records law. Verizon accuses the town of violating federal and state laws by not basing its denials on substantial evidence in a written record, for unreasonable delays, for excessive fees, for discriminatory practices and violation of the public records law. It is asking the court to mandate Philipstown to grant all necessary permits and authorizations for Verizon to begin work on a new tower immediately.

The fire department also said it needs the new tower to fill gaps in its emergency communications, Verizon said. But town officials, Verizon alleges, “were intent on catering to a small but vocal group of politically influential objectors.” Verizon said that town officials delayed a public hearing for several months and imposed new fees. Officials questioned the severity of the wireless gap at a joint meeting of the zoning and conservation boards on Jan. 22, and they cited housing values and aesthetics. Cell towers near houses, zoning board member Vincent Cestone said, “can have a devastating effect on the price of a house.” Board member Paula Clair called cell towers “an abomination, because here, our rural atmosphere is a significant factor in property desirability and thus valuation.” The conservation board rejected the wetlands permit application by a 6-0 vote. The zoning board rejected the special use permit application by a 4-1 vote. The conservation board gave no reason for its denial,

potty wireless communication coverage around Philipstown is not just a matter of convenience for the 9,600 inhabitants of the Putnam County town, Verizon Wireless says, it is a critical communications gap along the heavily traveled Routes 9 and 301 corridors. So when town officials rejected Verizon’s proposals to move cell tower equipment to a higher spot, the company sued Philipstown in U.S. District Court in White Plains. Verizon and its contractor, Homeland Towers of Danbury, Connecticut, claim that federal telecommunications law trumps local law when it comes to the nation’s wireless infrastructure. The lawsuit, filed last month, names the town board, zoning board of appeals, conservation board, building inspector Greg Wunner and natural resources review officer Max Garfinkle. A town official did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Verizon operates a 120foot cell tower at McKeels Corners where the topography obstructs the signal. So Verizon wants to relocate equipment to 50 Vineyard Road, where it would erect a 180-foot pole and include antennas for North Highlands Engine Company No. 1 and at least three other wireless carriers. Last May, Verizon applied for a special-use permit and a wetlands permit for the Vineyard site. The town code allows communications towers there, the complaint states, and the project satisfies all requirements. The company also claims that the Vineyard site is the only feasible location and the least intrusive. The town’s own consulting engineer verified that the McKeels Corners site could not mitigate the wireless gap, even if it were raised to 210 feet.

iners will have the opportunity to sample cuisine from hundreds of area eateries this month thanks to Hudson Valley Restaurant Week. Presented by The Valley Table, a print magazine celebrating its 20th year, Restaurant Week will begin on March 12 and run through March 25. Restaurants will offer three-course, prix-fixe menus at $22.95 for lunch and $32.95 for dinner. More than 200 restaurants across the region will participate in restaurant week this year. “It keeps growing. I remember when it was just three of us doing this,” said Peter Xavier Kelly, owner of Restaurant X & Bully Boy Bar, the restaurant that hosted the event’s kickoff celebration on March 6. “I am particularly happy that so many different venues are participating. We have every different cuisine, every style of restaurant, so it’s really very exciting to be part of this.” Participating restaurants are located across the Hudson Valley region,

with eateries in Columbia, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland and Ulster counties. More than half of the restaurants are in Westchester County. “It brings a lot of people out, not only locally, but from all over who are able to try a lot of the restaurants we have to offer,” said Mary Kay Vrba, president and CEO of Dutchess Tourism Inc. Janet Crawshaw, publisher of The Valley Table, said the event not only gives diners a chance to experience

“the food revolution” happening in the Hudson Valley region, but also gives a boost to the local economy. “This is a really difficult time of year, March, and this time of year you don’t know what’s going to come,” she said, referencing the recent nor‘easter that dampened business at some local restaurants. “Business is tough even when there isn’t a storm in winter and this really is a boost to the rest.” Crawshaw said participating restaurants typically see a 25 to 50 percent increase in business during the two-week event. “So many restaurants have literally called me afterwards and said, ‘Thank you so much. This is just the shot in the arm I needed to get to the next season,’” she said. Recently opened eateries on the restaurant week lineup include the Europeaninfluenced eatery at the boutique Beacon Hotel in Dutchess, Fin and Brew in Peekskill and Ossining’s 3 Westerly Bar & Grille. “Even when there are 200-plus restaurants participating, everyone looks for who’s new, so it’s a great way to introduce new restaurants,” Crawshaw said.

Metro-North to start $94 million renovations at White Plains station

etro-North Railroad will start work on a $94 million renovation of the White Plains station on March 19 that the railroad said will make it “safer, brighter, cleaner and easier to navigate.” The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said that construction will create some minor changes to the Hudson and Harlem line schedules. Train schedules will shift to allow Metro-North workers to start on the project that is expected to take three years. The project will include new signs, improved platforms, benches with USB chargers, new station dashboards and stronger WiFi and cellular connectivity. Plans call for improving the station's entrances, upgrading restrooms and adding energy-efficient LED lighting among other upgrades. The station will also receive new wall panels, ceiling tiles and fixtures. The White Plains station is along the busiest segment of Metro-North’s system. For construction, one of the two tracks will be removed from service during off-peak and weekend hours to allow construction crews access to the platforms. Metro-North officials said in the statement that construction will not affect peak-hour weekday service or schedules. Crews will also rehabili-

tate tracks between Scarsdale and Hartsdale. Both stations will be refurbished next year, according to Metro-North. The upgrades come as White Plains city officials are preparing for an overhaul of the train station’s surrounding neighborhoods. The city unveiled plans at the end of 2016 for a White Plains Transit District that will involve rezoning and open some city land for development. The plan was developed through a million-dollar state grant, which financed a yearlong community outreach and planning process. The city’s vision calls for a rezoning of several blocks near the train station. The new zoning will stress open space and mixed-use residential buildings with groundfloor retail. The plan opens up about 4.5 acres of city-owned land near the train station for development: two parking lots, a parking garage and a firehouse along Ferris Avenue and Bank Street. The city sent out a request for expressions of interest in the properties to potential developers last June, but hasn’t announced any further decisions since. The RFEI required developers incorporate open space, bicycle infrastructure and apartment buildings with ground-floor retail into any plans. Here’s the full list of schedule changes for con-

struction, as provided by Metro-North:

WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE THIS WAY? BY MARK STEVENS

HARLEM LINE, WEEKDAYS:

There are no schedule changes to peak-period trains. Service levels are not affected on Harlem Line trains operating between Grand Central Terminal and Crestwood. Ten midday and four nighttime local trains to and from North White Plains will no longer operate between Crestwood and North White Plains. Some trains to and from Southeast that currently operate express between White Plains and Harlem125th Street will add stops at Hartsdale, Scarsdale and/ or Crestwood to preserve half-hourly service to those stations, and to provide connecting service to and from the Crestwood local trains. Up to four minutes of running time has been added to accommodate speed restrictions and to operate at reduced speed past track and station-construction workers on the adjacent track and platform. Up to four minutes of running time has been added to some northbound local trains at Scarsdale to allow southbound trains to clear the single-track between North White Plains and Scarsdale.

S

o often in life, we have a fit because someone with authority or influence over us insists that we: • Rewrite a document • Change the way we sell • Work overtime to get something done • Sharpen our skills at any number of things • And on, and on... And so we go on a rant, asking “Why am I in this position? Why does it have to be this way?” Well, I’ve given this a great deal of thought and what I’ve come to realize is that it’s the inverse of what we often think. Meaning, those forced and often unwanted to-dos are actually the extra steps that drive us to higher levels of performance. (Yes, they are blessings in disguise.) Case in point: when I wrote my best seller Your Marketing Sucks, I worked with a crusty old editor, famous (or infamous, depending on your perspective) for rewriting everything 1001 times. But there’s an important life lesson here. Rewriting (or performing any other task) endlessly for the sake of rewriting endlessly, is, yes, a maddening waste.

But (and ah ha, here’s the difference) going through the motions requested or demanded by a mentor/collaborator lifts your professionalism and, in turn, the quality of your work. My book was vastly enhanced by the presence of a wise and insistent editor. Just this week, I was in a meeting with a number of people, including a former employee, we’ll call her Jenn. Here’s what I told the group: “Jenn used to hate me. She really did. Why? Because I drove her nuts by demanding more and more of her talents and energy. “But why did I do that? Simple: because I knew Jenn had the right stuff. That she could be a star.” When I told Jenn that, it gave her a new lense to look through when she pondered her career. From there, she blossomed, we developed a true friendship and she became the youngest VP in my firm.” The truth is, the things we do when we go the extra mile are the very things that bring us across the finish line first. If we ever want a finish line!

Thoughts of the Day: Time is money — make sure your people understand that principle. Minimize opportunities for delay. Have a system to minimize delays. Focus on factors that contribute to enhanced performance. When it comes to running a successful company, the more your people under-

stand about what drives success, the better. And the first order of business is understanding the relationship between time and money. Talk with your people about how tight margins can be. Show them examples of jobs that made a profit and those that took a loss. Discuss why there were dif-

ferent outcomes, focusing on errors and the role of overhead hours vs. billable hours. Make up competitions for which teams get out the door the fastest, have the lowest downtime and have the fewest errors on the job. Ask winners to talk about how they did it and train the other teams. Set up a procedure for field staff to call in if they’re going to be out sick or if there’s an emergency they have to deal with. Have your field-crew scheduler online before the crews arrive, rearranging work assignments by priority if there are any people not coming in or equipment is down. Set up a check-in desk right next to the time clock, where people can get a packet of instructions for the day. Minimize disruption with floaters to fill in gaps. Permanently assign teams to specific trucks, which should be fueled, equipped and ready to go as soon as the team is fully assembled. Make sure all team members know their roles: the team leader picks up job paperwork, hands out crew assignments and checks equipment. The navigator looks for the most efficient routes to use. The driver checks out the vehicle, double-checks equipment and supplies and verifies the crew is on board. Have someone stay at the end of the day to gas up, clean and restock all vehicles. Have someone arrive early in the morning to double check everything and log vehicles out. Field crews should report vehicle issues while they’re out on the road and the office lines up overnight maintenance resources to fix problems. Set a schedule for preventive maintenance matched to vehicle mileage and stick to the schedule no matter how busy things get. If you can’t afford to be down a vehicle, add an extra rotating vehicle to the fleet or line up a rental service as backup. Live by the motto “A place for everything and everything in its place.” Insist all tools and supplies get put away where they belong. Diagram how each

field vehicle should be outfitted and train everyone to use the map every day. Make it easier to spot things that need to be replaced by labeling hooks — the empty ones become clear signals calling for new gear and supplies. Have someone check that equipment is put away before leaving the job site. Do everything possible to create favorable work conditions. Clean up clutter. Get rid of hazards. Limit overtime and make sure your people get plenty of opportunity to rest. Address conflicts head on and get rid of them. Overcommunicate to reduce time wasted on guesses and gossip. Save time starting in on the next day’s work by giving your people time to wrap up, pick up and organize at the end of the day. Looking for a good book?

‘The nearness of you’ The Pelham Art Center Gallery in Pelham recently celebrated the opening of its new portrait exhibition, “Near To You.” The show features the work of six artists who have expressed in sculpture and paintings what it means to capture the impression or image of a person. Some of the artists and their subjects were on hand at the opening to share in the fun of discovering from the viewers if they truly succeeded. The exhibit is on view through March 24.

Metro-North—

trains will no longer operate between Crestwood and North White Plains. To accommodate train meets at the ends of the single-track segments, the northbound schedule pattern for most trains is revised. As is the case during off-peak hours on weekdays, certain trains to and from Southeast that currently operate express between Harlem-125th Street and White Plains will add stops at Hartsdale, Scarsdale and/ or Crestwood. To accommodate the switch replacement project near Brewster, service between Grand Central Terminal and Southeast is reduced to hourly except inbound in the morning, and outbound in the late afternoon/evening. Halfhourly service will be restored with the fall 2018 schedule change. The through-train service between Grand Central Terminal and Wassaic on weekends in both directions (one train in each direc-

tion each day) is replaced with shuttle trains between Southeast and Wassaic, with connections at Southeast. Overall travel time between Wassaic and Grand Central Terminal is about 10 minutes longer than on the through trains. Up to four minutes of running time has been added to account for speed restrictions and to operate at reduced speed past track and station construction workers on the adjacent track and platform.

HUDSON LINE:

Northbound weekend trains to Poughkeepsie depart Grand Central Terminal two minutes later and trains to Croton-Harmon depart one minute later in order to support rescheduled Harlem Line service.

NEW HAVEN LINE, WEEKDAY:

All weekday inbound trains will make stops at Rye, Harrison and Mamaroneck one minute earlier to support track work in the area.

Utilities—

called in from Canada, Texas and Wisconsin. NYSEG reported about 18,000 outages in its Westchester service area among its 32,800 customers as of the morning of March 8. That number also shot up following the latest storm. The utility reported about 1,500 of its Westchester customers were without power before the second snow storm hit. In Westchester, NYSEG provides electricity to several northern towns and villages, including North Salem, Somers, Yorktown and Bedford. State law requires utilities to prepare and follow emergency restoration response plans. Failure to do so, as judged by the state Public Service Commission, can result in financial penalties to shareholders. Cuomo last year called for an investigation into the response from Rochester utilities after a major March wind storm knocked out power for more than a

week in some places. The Public Service Commission found last fall that sanctions were warranted for both NYSEG and Rochester Gas & Electric, but have not reached a settlement. The governor also called for an investigation into the overall response to Hurricane Sandy in 2012, blaming utilities, with special scrutiny on Long Island Power Authority, for the region’s slow recovery. Public Service Commission Chairman John

Rhodes said the PSC would be watching the restoration efforts closely, including following the latest nor’easter. “This is a severe and prolonged outage,” Rhodes said on the March 6 conference call. “There have been clear failures and failures of communication between the utilities and the government and customers. And absolutely an intense review and investigation is warranted.” With the addition-

al snowfall reaching up to more than a foot in some parts of the county, Latimer said that utilities will be held accountable by their customers. “Forget government … Hudson Valley residents are watching very carefully what their utility companies are doing,” Latimer said. “And many times the elected officials, from the governor on down respond to community outrage, and the communities are outraged.”

Westchester County Executive George Latimer speaks emphatically to Con Edison about its response to restoring power.

D&D ELEVATOR TO OPEN YONKERS TRAINING CENTER FOR ELEVATOR TECHNICIANS

ne of the primary issues facing U.S. industry today — across virtually all the manual labor trades and particularly in construction — is an ongoing shortage of trained technicians. This is being strongly felt in the elevator industry, where steadily growing building construction has created increasing demand for technicians to install, service and maintain new and existing systems. More and more one hears, “we need more trained technicians, but there’s no one available to hire.” According to Bob Schaeffer, CEO and president of Elmsford-based D&D Elevator Maintenance, the solution is “training, training, training.” An elevator industry veteran, Schaeffer has throughout his career been a strong advocate for education. Among his many accreditations, he served as board president of the National Association of Elevator Contractors (NAEC) and, as education chairman, was instrumental in creating the Certified Elevator Technician (CET™) certification. This nationally recognized certificate program provides the elevator industry with the means of obtaining and verifying knowledge and experience requirements related to compliance with industry codes, elevator and escalator specific technical theory, components and competencies. For its own company, D&D Elevator has been delivering apprenticeship training for more than 15 years with great success. Schaeffer explains, “To allow us to grow at a reasonable pace, our goal was to make sure we always had enough skilled workers, while maintaining and enhancing our existing workforce. In 2016, and at the beginning of 2017, we have seen a dynamic change in the workforce. Retirees have outpaced new apprentices and rather than deal with the rigors of daily maintenance, repairs, modernizations and the installation of elevators, many qualified technicians have opted to become inspectors and third-party witnesses.” Now, in the face of the worsening shortage in certified technicians, D&D is working on expanding the training model to other elevator companies that subscribe to the common goal of using only educated and safety-trained skilled labor. When they began asking other companies if they had any interest in this, the answer was a resounding ‘if you build it, we will come.’ Accordingly, D&D has begun the process of building a 2,500-square-foot Elevator Learning Center on Corporate Boulevard in Yonkers, antici-

REAL ESTATE

pated to open spring 2018. In keeping with the objective of developing an innovative education model that other companies would fi nd valuable — while ensuring that the educational content is proven and accepted — all classes are being taught by experienced and certified instructors. According to Schaeffer, the overarching objective of the Center is to allow for other companies to train at its facility, either through its approved educational delivery system, or a process created through contractor related organizations. The Center will also be providing services that include certified

testing, proctoring and graduate placement services for entities that provide apprenticeship and re-certification. Working with human resource professionals, it is planning to add personal attribute and ethics training to help create well-rounded candidates who understand the importance of communication, quality and professionalism. In conclusion, Schaeffer says, “We see this approach as a solution to the shortage of skilled labor — to help build a body of educated, trained, skilled, responsible workers who can make an extremely good living while serving a pressing societal need.”

D&D Elevator Maintenance president Bob Schaeffer teaching an elevator technician apprenticeship program.

D&D’s Elevator’s new Elevator Learning Center will be located at Corporate Boulevard in Yonkers and will be delivering: • State-of-the-art computer workstations delivering online education • Accredited, certified apprenticeship training recognized by the Department of Labor • OSHA and Safety training using highly experienced, certified instructors • Industry related continuing education with CEU credits for certification requirements

Students will experience hands-on learning with full-scale elevator component mockups and demonstration aids, as well as simulators that provide the experience of working with equipment from several leading manufacturers.

WE SAVE WATER

OUR MEMBERS PREVENT SPILLS AND BRING CLEAN WATER TO YOUR TAP

State-of-the-art training facilities prepare members for careers in construction

L

ocal 825 Operating Engineers (IUOE Local 825) have a new home in Wawayanda after years of planning and building. The new Local 825 Training Center and offices opened this fall and are now operational at 96 Bates Gates Road, New Hampton. “We are proud of our new facility and will put it to full use for our members,” said Local 825 Business Manager Greg Lalevee. “The New York location is intended to bring training closer to our members who live in the Hudson Valley and the northernmost counties of New Jersey.” Local 825 is headquartered in Springfield, New Jersey, and represents 7,000 operating engineers throughout New Jersey and five counties of lower New York, including Rockland, Orange, Ulster, Sullivan and Delaware. Its members operate heavy-equipment – such as cranes, bulldozers, graders, pavers, pile drivers backhoes and loaders – to execute large construction tasks and earthworks operations. The property is located along Interstate-84 and encompasses more than 70 acres, with approximately 25 acres available for training activities. Construction began in late 2016 and

Our members share concerns for conservation. It bothers us that up to 130 million gallons of New Jersey’s drinking water are wasted every day due to aging underground pipes.

WE PROMOTE CONSERVATION. Local 825 Operating Engineers are trained to install water infrastructure efficiently and without impacting the environment. In New York, we are part of a team that will save 138 million gallons of drinking water every day, delivering clean water to millions of homes throughout the region. We believe in conservation and renewal that will only come with a commitment to infrastructure upgrades, before a serious or prolonged water shortage forces us to act.

ON TIME. ON BUDGET. ON TARGET. Developers and contractors turn to Local 825 Operating Engineers to get big things done safely, on time and on budget. Our members are experienced, licensed, credentialed and ready to work, day one.

everse mortgages still have a negative connotation for many. Stories of senior citizens losing their life savings through such transactions permeate the internet, coupled with headlines about “the reverse mortgage con” strike fear into the hearts of homeowners seeking to draw value from the investment in their house. But those fears are mostly misplaced, according to Nick Buscaglia, senior vice president for residential mortgage at M&T Bank, which maintains branches throughout Fairfield and Westchester counties. “A lot of that is misinformation that dates back to when they first appeared in the ’80s,” he said. “But over the past several years it’s become a lot better,” in part by the strict code of ethics established in 1997 by the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association, Buscaglia said. “Of course,” he added, “there’s always the caveat of knowing who you’re dealing with and making sure it’s the right product for you.” Most banks in Fairfield and Westchester — including People’s United, Patriot, Newtown Savings Bank and The Westchester Bank -- do not offer reverse mortgages. While they did not respond to requests for further comment, a recent survey by the mortgage consultancy Stratmor Group found that “reputation risk” was the top reason for eschewing reverse mortgages, followed by “distraction from the forward business,” “lack

of in-house expertise,” and “belief it won’t be profitable.” Buscaglia said he thought the last point was particularly resonant. “Reverse mortgages are a small product,” he said. “It’s a spit in the ocean compared to the first mortgage business, and other banks believe they aren’t worth their while.” M&T takes the point of view that it’s another valuable offering for its customers, he added. “We’re one of the few out there who try to meet every single customer face-to-face,” he said. “We want them to be able to see us, touch us and know who they’re dealing with. A lot of other companies do it all by phone.” While Buscaglia declined to say how many reverse mortgages M&T does each year, data from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which oversees the market, indicates that there aren’t that many taking place locally. The state of Connecticut recorded a total of 435 reverse mortgages in 2016 — last year’s numbers are not yet available — compared with 597 in 2015. New York totaled 2,198 in 2016, down from 3,238 the year before. Last year, John M. Tolomer, president and CEO of The Westchester Bank, told the Business Journal that reverse mortgages were “not something that is popular with our client base.” Jason Milligan of Norwalk’s Milligan Realty said that although “I have been involved with them when there are short sales and they have been somewhat hard to deal with,” his firm “didn’t have a ton of experience with reverse mortgages.”

Requiring counseling... provides more protection for consumers who might fall victim to predatory lenders. — State Sen. Tony Hwang

Nevertheless, the activity in Connecticut has been sufficient enough for state Sen. Tony Hwang —whose district includes Easton, Fairfield, Newtown, Weston and Westport — to push for legislation introduced through the Aging Committee in February that would prevent a reverse-mortgage lender from originating a reverse mortgage unless it has informed the applicant of the HUD counseling requirement, received certification that the applicant has attended the counseling session, and that the counseling session was conducted in person. The legislation is intended to bring Connecticut more closely in line with HUD requirements, which

mandate that any borrower seeking such a transaction receive counseling by a Federal Housing Authorityapproved person before the borrower incurs any costs for the loan. In fact, Hwang’s measure goes a step further, by requiring in-person counseling which the FHA prefers, but does not insist upon. In a statement, Hwang said that such counseling can help seniors understand the tax implications of the mortgage payout and what rights a nonborrowing spouse has upon the borrower’s death. “The financial institutions certainly weren’t volunteering to educate their clients,” he said. “Requiring counseling and additional recordkeeping provides

more protection for consumers, particularly our seniors, who might fall victim to predatory lenders.” Meanwhile, last month the Trump administration proposed a permanent end to the cap on the number of reverse mortgages. “The budget will again propose permanently lifting the cap of 275,000 loan guarantees to provide further stability for the (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage) program,” the White House wrote in its proposal for the fiscal 2019 HUD budget. “This proposal reflects the significant improvements that have been made to the program to reduce risk to the (Mutual Mortgage Insurance) Fund and to ensure responsible lending to seniors.”

payment transactions initiated from a mobile phone might follow a credit card, debit card or other path.

WHO DO I CALL WHEN SOMETHING GOES WRONG?

Moving money: Five questions to ask about your enterprise’s payments

L

et’s face it, money is always going to be an attractive target for thieves, scammers and those willing to bribe and be bribed. Therefore, take time periodically to ask a few questions about the way money comes in, goes out and is routed, controlled and secured for your enterprise. Every company takes in revenue and spends money to support the business. Every nonprofit enterprise also has to han-

dle money — to buy supplies and pay staff, to take contributions and grants. Reviewing rules, responsibilities and costs is prudent risk management.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY “PAYMENTS?”

Payments include all the different ways that money can move between two entities, whether businesses or people, or one of each. Generally, payments include cash, checks,

credit cards, debit cards, wire transfers and the automated clearinghouse (ACH). There are also various cyber- or cryptocurrencies not currently in wide use despite the press coverage. As a business manager, your payment goals include making it easy for customers to pay, to easily send and track outgoing payments and to keep costs and risks low. I want to distinguish these from the device used to make a payment. For example,

Your business might have a single provider for all your payment needs, most likely a bank or payment processor. As the market and options have become more diversified, so too have the number and types of providers. Thus, an organization with physical locations, such as doctors’ offices or retail shops, as well as online retail or wholesale operations might end up having multiple service providers for different parts of the business. With each vendor, trace the entire path that money can follow and specify who will find and fix a problem at each step.

WHO ABSORBS THE COSTS OF SOMETHING GOING WRONG, WHETHER IT’S BROKEN TECHNOLOGY, MISROUTED TRANSACTIONS, FRAUD OR THEFT?

Don’t assume that your business is protected against the cost of things gone wrong. Those rules about protections for credit card and debit card are consumer protections and a business that accepts credit cards is not the consumer. Those purchase cards or travel cards that you issued to key employees to help them pay for business purchases are not covered either, because your business is not the consumer.

Those rules about protections for credit card and debit card are consumer protections and a business that accepts credit cards is not the consumer.

And since October 2016, the risk for point of sale card transactions using magnetic stripes, rather than the newer chip card readers, is absorbed by the merchant. Chip card transaction losses flow to the merchant’s bank. Checks screened or converted to e-check transactions — which are really ACH debits — at the point of sale might also earn better indemnity protection or lower processing fees than unscreened checks. As with all other business arrangements, read the contract carefully to make sure you are comfortable with all its provisions and ask lots of questions. Call your business insurance company and see what kind of coverage you can get there.


DO ONLINE TRANSACTIONS REQUIRE OR FALL UNDER CYBER-RISK COVERAGE? HOW MUCH WILL THESE PAYMENTS COST?

Costs vary depending on where and how the money moves. Costs generally include equipment, ongoing service and per-item charges, and a business’ needs for each depends on physical location, method of communication and type of payment. Cost differences do not necessarily reflect risk. Fees for credit and debit cards at physical locations, for example, are frequently lower than for payments accepted online or over the telephone. For point of sale transactions, chip cards provide more security than jotting down a phone number during a telephone call, while enabling an operator to screen the card number in

BRIEFLY STERLING TO ACQUIRE ADVANTAGE FUNDING

Sterling Bancorp, through its principal subsidiary, Sterling National Bank, on March 6 announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Advantage Funding Management Company Inc. from Macquarie Bank Ltd. Advantage is based in Lake Success and provides commercial vehicle and transportation financing services. As of the end of 2017, it held loans and leases worth $488 million. Macquarie has its headquarters in Sydney, Australia, and has more than 14,000 employees in more than 28 countries. Sterling, which is based in Montebello, said the acquisition would bring its equipment finance portfolio to more than $1 billion. Jack Kopnisky, president and CEO of Sterling, said, “The acquisition of Advantage Funding is consistent with our strategy of transitioning our balance sheet to a more diversified and higher-yielding commercial loan mix following our merger with Astoria (Bank), and will augment strong organic origination volumes that we anticipate in our commercial businesses in 2018.” Sterling will acquire the stock of Advantage in an all-cash transaction using a combination of cash on hand, run-off of existing residential mortgage loans and sales of securities. In the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2017, the Advantage Funding loan portfolio had a weighted average yield of approximately 7.5 percent. The transaction is expected to be completed in April. — Peter Katz

real time incurs a service fee but may pay for itself by reducing risk of bad payments. Similarly, taking chip cards at the point of sale is more secure than magnetic stripe cards and so fees are lower, but you have to install or upgrade your card readers and software, which won’t likely be free. Business-to-business payments such as wire transfers can carry significant fees, but bring advantages. Business-tobusiness and business-to-consumer payments made via the ACH can be quite inexpensive. These payments include e-checks and direct deposit for payroll or reimbursements. Some types of B2B payments can be made cost-efficiently via purchase cards or “cardless” card transactions.

WHEN IS THE MONEY FINALLY MINE OR THE OTHER PARTY’S?

This question really encompasses two topics: first, when will the money from today’s sales show up in the business bank account and, on the flip side, when will the money being paid out actually move from my business’ account to the supplier-side business? Second, when will I know that the money is really mine and can’t be reclaimed? Consumer protections for credit cards enable chargebacks for fraudulent transactions. Checks can bounce and ACH debits, including e-checks, can be returned as well. Wire transfers, on the other hand, are final and cannot bounce or be reclaimed once your bank releases the instructions or

receives the payment. Wire fees are much higher than for other transactions, but if you are buying or selling a business, a building, substantial property, insist on a wire transfer.

WHICH PAYMENTS ARE BEST FOR MY ENTERPRISE?

You know the answer: It depends. And, probably more than one type. It’s likely worth exploring your options.

GOOD THINGS Some of the treats painted by Beverly Shipko.

Shipko at work.

NO-CALORIE TREATS FOR AN ANNIVERSARY Imagine being able to consume all the cookies and cakes and icing you want without having to worry about gaining even a tiny fraction of a pound. You can do it as part of the 25th Anniversary of the Studio Tour that is coordinated by RiverArts, the nonprofit that serves communities along the Hudson from Hastings to Tarrytown. The only catch: you have to be content with consuming them visually, through the artwork of Beverly Shipko, one of the participants in the studio tour. She’ll be opening her studio at 36 Shelton St. in Ardsley to the public on April 21 and 22 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Shipko, a long-time member of River Arts who gave up her career as an advertising executive to become an artist, paints in both large and small formats, offering a broad selection of dessert art ranging from cookie, pies and birthday cakes to bowls of strawberries and blueberries topped with mounds of whipped cream. RiverArts expects about 80 artists to open their studios to the public during this spring’s tour.

COLEMAN SCHOOL CHILDREN CELEBRATE Children at the John A. Coleman School in White Plains, a community-based special education program for young children, celebrated day number 100 in the current school year by helping others. They, their families and school staff members participated in a food collection drive that had a goal of collecting 100 items. According to Maureen Tomkiel, executive director of the school, “We tripled our goal. The Coleman School has been blessed with many generous and longtime supporters over the years and we felt like we wanted to show our appreciation and support of the Westchester community by ‘giving back’ in some small way.” The food drive benefitted the Food Bank for Westchester. Tomkiel explained that leading up to the food drive teachers worked with their students explore what it means to help people in need. MiAngela, a student in Coleman School’s preschool inclusion classroom, Children’s Place, said, “We did this because people needed food to eat.” Her classmates, Jack and Daniel, added, “People feel happy when they get food.”

STUDENT FROM SOMERS BECOMES DOO-WOP STAR Eighteen-year-old Christopher Ruggiero of Somers, a freshman at Pace, managed to steal some time away from his studies to pursue his passion of doo-wop music in a big way: he performed with the classic group The Duprees in a television special made for the Public Broadcasting Service. The program “Doo-Wop Generations” was produced by T. J. Lubinsky. He has been responsible for numerous PBS programs spotlighting music of the rock ’n’ roll era. More than 200 musicians gathered in

Asbury Park, New Jersey, for the two-day taping at the Paramount Theatre on Dec. 12 and 13. The show began airing nationally at the beginning of March and, if the pattern is repeated, will be shown from time to time for years to come. As a child, Ruggiero became passionate about doo-wop music as a result of his grandfather having a group called “Joey and the Quotations.” The Duprees are best known for their hits “You Belong to Me,” “My Own True Love” and “Have You Heard.”

Sarah Lawrence College has announced the appointment of Tricia Hanley as the new director of its Child Development Institute. She is an alumna of Sarah Lawrence and a former head teacher in its Early Childhood Center. Hanley, who lives in Larchmont, had been with the Barnard College Center for Toddler Development for six years. “My goal is to get CDI out there and to let everyone know we are here. We want to better understand ways we can partner with organizations in the community and use the resources we have to benefit them,” she said. The institute was established in 1987 to develop programs for early childhood and elementary school teachers, administrators, child development professionals, parents and the community at large.

Robin Rosenberg, founder and president of the center, said, “Over the past few years, in large part due to Christine’s work as program director, Garner Arts Center has grown and expanded its programs, services and audiences.” The arts center recently received a $22,000 grant from Rockland County’s Department of Tourism and Economic Development. It plans to use the funds to promote its facilities and programs, especially its Arts Festival on May 19 and 20, Brick Alley Block Party on Sept. 22, and Autumn Electronix Music Festival on Oct. 20.


HAPPENING A few of the 100 Pace University students who participated in the One Million Acts of Good event.

PACE STUDENTS VOLUNTEER TO DO GOOD The One Million Acts of Good campaign launched by TV personality Ellen DeGeneres came to the Pace University campus in Pleasantville recently. More than 100 students volunteered to prepare boxes of food and other items for the Food Bank for Westchester to distribute. The students assembled what are called “Matter Boxes,” filled with food, supplies and personal notes. On her daily television show, in a promotion celebrating her 60th birthday, DeGeneres partnered with the General Mills cereal brand Cheerios to launch the Million Acts of Good campaign. The idea, as the name implies, was to encourage people around the country to do

a million good things. Some were highlighted on television, such as a couple who drove 800 miles to deliver supplies to hurricane survivors and a teacher who donated a kidney to the mother of a student. On her Feb. 2 telecast, DeGeneres and General Mills showed their appreciation for the impact the campaign was having by giving away $1 million in cash, divided among members of that day’s studio audience. General Mills donated pallets of food for volunteers around the country to pack into “Matter Boxes” for distribution to their local food banks. The Pace students put together 250 of the boxes that were delivered to the Food Bank for Westchester.

WIHD RECEIVES FUNDS, EQUIPMENT FROM DENTAL FOUNDATION The Westchester Institute for Human Development in Valhalla has received $5,000 plus a portable hand-held X-ray unit from the New York State Dental Foundation. The funding from the foundation’s Give Kids a Smile Award program will support the institute’s dental services program. The X-ray machine, which was provided by Kavo Kerr Group, a manufacturer and distributor of dental equipment, will be used in the institute’s dental van.

“I have worked with a number of leaders at WIHD and am thrilled that we have been able to help the important work that they do in providing dental care for people with disabilities,” said Laura Clark Leon, executive director of the dental foundation. The institute’s dental program provides more than 6,800 dental visits a year to almost 2,300 dental patients who come to its dental center in Valhalla.

BURSHTEYN JOINS WHITE PLAINS HOSPITAL White Plains Hospital has announced the appointment of Dr. Mark Burshteyn as director of interventional oncology. He will see patients at the hospital’s Center for Cancer Care at 2 Longview Ave. in White Plains. “We were the first hospital in Westchester to build a stand-alone cancer center more than 20 years ago and this appointment is another example of how we are continuing to expand our programs, services and facilities to meet the growing demand for advanced care, right here in the community,” said Michael Palumbo, the hospital’s executive vice president and medical director. Burshteyn is board-certified in diagnostic and vascular and interventional radiology. He has co-authored articles in the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology and the Journal of the American College of Radiology; and has presented case reports and studies at national and local professional events.

The LOFT LGBT Community Center in White Plains has announced Edie Windsor, who was the plaintiff in a case that resulted in the U.S. Supreme Court holding that it was unconstitutional to restrict the definition of “marriage” and spouse” to heterosexual unions and her spouse, Thea Spyer, bequeathed $50,000 to the organization. The LOFT supported Windsor’s gay rights activism and efforts to overturn Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act. Spyer died in 2009. She and Windsor had been together for 40 years. Windsor subsequently married Judith Kasen. Windsor passed away in 2017 at age 88. Kasen-Windsor said, “This gift is a tremendous acknowledgement of how much the beloved LOFT community meant to Edie and Thea.” “We are committed to using Edie’s generous donation in a way that will directly impact our community and celebrate Edie’s legacy,” said Judy Troilo, executive director of The LOFT LGBT Community Center.

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

Brendon DeSimone

Houlihan Lawrence has announced that Brendon DeSimone, manager of its office serving Bedford and Pound Ridge, also will be managing the company’s office in Katonah. Houlihan Lawrence has 66 agents in its Bedford/Pound Ridge office and 43 in Katonah. Katonah manager Roselyn Harburger is retiring after 17 years with the company. In DeSimone’s first year as manager in Bedford/Pound Ridge, sales volume rose 15 percent and the office went from No. 9 to No. 6 in sales volume among all Houlihan Lawrence offices. “Northern Westchester, unlike the rest of the county, is still catching up from the 2008 housing market collapse,” DeSimone said. “High demand and our lack of inventory should eventually lead to higher prices.” DeSimone writes a weekly syndicated real estate column and has been a featured guest on Bloomberg, CNBC and ABC’s “Good Morning America” among others.
