Feds unveil new roadmap for critical cybersecurity BY JOHN GOLDEN email@example.com
ore information sharing and voluntary collaboration between government and the private sector without additional federal regulations is needed to reduce the risk of cyberattacks on the nation’s critical infrastructure, cybersecurity experts said at a recent forum on the Fordham University Westchester campus. Reducing the nation’s cyber risk was the topic of presentations in March at Fordham and on other campuses around the country as White House officials spread word of a new critical infrastructure cybersecurity framework unveiled by President Obama in February. The 40-page document was prepared by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, acting on an executive order issued by Obama one year earlier. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has identified 16 critical infrastructure sectors: chemical, commercial facilities, communications, critical manufacturing, dams, defense industrial base, emergency services, energy, financial services, food and agriculture, government facilities, health care

and public health, information technology, nuclear reactors, materials and waste, transportation systems and water and wastewater systems. The framework serves as a guidebook that provides a set of industry standards and best practices to help organizations manage cybersecurity risks. According to its framers, it “uses a common language to address and manage cybersecurity risk in a cost-effective way based on business needs without placing additional regulatory requirements on businesses.” “Our goal is not to expand cybersecurity regulations,” said keynote speaker Samara N. Moore, National Security Council director for cybersecurity critical infrastructure protection. “Our goal is to harmonize existing regulations that are out there.” Federal officials at Fordham called the document a versatile tool that companies can use to manage cybersecurity and identify gaps in their security systems. “Know what your systems are and how systems and information are used to support delivery of your critical infrastructure services,” Moore advised. Be aware of security gaps in your system and have a contingency
plan in place, she said. Moore said the new framework also applies to critical infrastructure subsectors and “the ecosystem that supports that” such as supply chains. She said the government is encouraging organizations to better understand “the role that they play in the ecosystem.” Cybersecurity in supply chains “is the number one issue we’ve been hearing,” said Jon Boyens, senior adviser on information security at the National Institute for Standards and Technology. With no federal funds budgeted to carry out Obama’s executive order, the Department of Homeland Security has leveraged its own programs and resources to implement the voluntary framework program for businesses, said Jenny Menna, director of stakeholder engagement and cyber infrastructure resilience at the Department of Homeland Security. “But our intention is that this is something that will be picked up by the market,” she said. She said the department has issued a request for information from companies on how to leverage economies of scale and get out accessible and affordable cybersecurity solutions for the private sector. For businesses, “Cybersecurity is part of
enterprise risk management,” Menna said. The heightened concern over cyber threats and exposure to attacks in private industry has served to step up business-tobusiness information sharing, which Moore said federal officials consider “the most valuable sharing.” At Rockwell Automation Inc., maker of machinery systems for process manufacturing, “We see a changing dialogue with our customers,” said Douglas Wylie the company’s product security risk management director. “We see an opportunity to work very collaboratively with our customers.” Wylie said he sees cybersecurity in other business sectors “as a horse race of sorts. You have a bunch of horses and some are farther ahead than others.” The government’s cybersecurity framework, said Wylie, “is giving us this common language and common architecture as we move across those boundaries” between mature and young operating systems and embedded devices speaking to each other. Upgrading system cybersecurity “is a difficult issue in industrial control,” Wylie said. “I say it’s akin to changing a car tire while you’re driving down the road.”

there isn’t enough parking spaces to support an expansion. The center is one of the most successful in the region and is often busy with traffic and shoppers, officials said. The construction proposal, which could still be approved by Town Board members, included a two-story, 10,800-square-foot building with ground-floor retail and second-floor restaurant space, and a one-story, 3,500-square-foot building for restaurant and retail tenants. Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc., of Greenwich, Conn., leases and manages the
Midway Shopping Center. The proposal included ways to improve traffic flow and parking. However, nearby residents said there is already insufficient parking in the neighborhood and that an expansion would increase the number of accidents in parking lots. Some residents have requested a parking garage be required as part of granting a permit, while others said any expansion should be on the south end of the shopping center where there is less traffic. — John Golden and Jennifer Bissell

A MEMBER OF
LAW FIRM SUES LANDLORD FOR SEcURITY DEPOSIT
A relocated law firm has gone to Westchester Supreme Court on its own behalf to recover a six-figure security deposit it claims the firm’s former office landlord on the Platinum Mile wrongly used to pay a mortgage servicer late last year. Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edeleman & Dicker L.L.P. filed its claim for the $318,000 security deposit and monetary damages one day after foreclosure proceedings began in late February against the firm’s former landlord in Harrison, Dryland Gannett 3 L.L.C. A special loan servicer in Florida, LNR Partners L.L.C., said in its foreclosure filing in Westchester Supreme Court that Dryland owed approximately $27.1 million on a $35.3 million mortgage for 3 Gannett Drive when it defaulted on the loan in February. The owner of the class B building is an entity of Heritage Realty Services L.L.C. in Manhattan. Both Dryland Gannett and LNR Partners are defendants in the Wilson Elser lawsuit. Wilson Elser was anchor tenant for 12
years at 3 Gannett Drive, in the former Gannett Office Park, until it relocated in the second half of 2013 to 1133 Westchester Ave. in White Plains. It has about 160 lawyers in its Westchester office. Wilson Elser in its complaint said its former landlord in mid-December drew $318,000 from the bank security deposit credit account and deposited the money with LNR. The former tenant claims the withdrawal was unauthorized and breached terms of its lease regarding the security deposit, initially set at $1.64 million in 2001. Wilson Elser attorneys argued the landlord did not serve the firm with a notice of default or a 30-day period to cure any default, as required by the lease. Attorneys for Dryland Gannett have until April 9 to answer the complaint in court.

Biotech company to expand in county BY JOHN GOLDEN email@example.com
ess than two years after relocating its headquarters within Westchester County, Acorda Therapeutics Inc. plans to add 90 jobs following a $6 million expansion this year on the Ardsley Park life science campus in the town of Greenburgh. Acorda, a 16-year-old biotechnology company that develops drug treatments for multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and other neurological disorders, in summer 2012 moved its growing operations and workforce from Hawthorne to Biomed Realty Trust’s 43-acre campus outside Ardsley. There, Acorda initially leased 138,000 square feet of office and laboratory space at 410 and 420 Saw Mill River Road, where it pledged to create about 190 new jobs over five years in exchange for more than $6.3 million in tax credits and tax exemptions from the state and county. The company already has run out of space on the Ardsley campus, attorney Janet J. Giris told the Westchester County Industrial Development Agency board at its March 25 meeting. Acorda is looking
to lease an additional 25,500 square feet of space at 440 Saw Mill River Road, she said. Susan Veres, Acorda’s facilities management and purchasing director, said the company moved to Ardsley with 157 employees and had grown to 282 employees by the end of 2013. The average annual salary at Acorda is $137,000, she said. The county IDA granted Acorda exemptions on sales and use taxes for materials purchased and equipment leased during the build-out of the new facility. Giris said those project purchases will amount to about $3.8 million. Acorda last month reported net income in 2013 of $16.4 million, or 39 cents per diluted share. The company in 2012 had net income of $155 million, which included a $132.7 million nonrecurring tax benefit. Sales of Ampyra, Acorda’s oral tablets used by multiple sclerosis patients to improve walking, generated net revenue of $84.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with $72.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Acorda reported Ampyra net revenue of $302.6 million for 2013, up from $266.1 million in 2012. Dr. Ron Cohen, founding president and

Neighbors sue White Plains to bar French-American school BY JENNIFER BISSELL email@example.com
eighbors have filed a lawsuit against the city of White Plains, claiming Common Council members illegally approved an environmental findings statement allowing the French-American School of New York to relocate to the grounds of the former Ridgeway Country Club. Concerned over the impact a 950-student campus would have on the grounds, the Gedney Association – representing a neighborhood of 455 households – filed a lawsuit late February requesting the New York Supreme Court re-examine the environmental review process used to pave the way for the school’s arrival. According to complaint, council members allegedly failed to properly investigate the environmental impact, ignoring “seriously questioned” busing and traffic plans. The council also allegedly adopted the site’s environmental findings statement without adequate public review. “Regrettably, the Common Council violated many of the environmental review requirements mandated by the state law and its own city land-use procedures,” said Terence Guerriere, Gedney Association president, in a written statement. “We felt obligated to challenge the decision.” In 2010, the French-American School paid $11 million for the 129-acre property to consolidate its three Westchester County campuses into one location. Previous plans for the $70-million project proposed creating a campus with several school buildings, athletic fields and playgrounds on 46 acres, leaving the remaining 83 acres on the property open to the public. Currently the school leases campuses in Larchmont, Mamaroneck and Scarsdale. It teaches bilingual and bicultural education in French and English from pre-school to 12th grade levels. The project has garnered tense opposition that cited concerns that the development would take away historic land and create traffic and drainage issues. However, school officials contend its plans incorporate positive features and designs to minimize the impact of the school. “The study and scope of the environmental review of our school’s planned campus on the defunct Ridgeway Country Club property was the most thorough ever conducted by the City of White Plains,” school officials wrote in a prepared statement. “This multi-year, multi-million dollar review constitutes thousands of pages and encompasses virtually every conceivable aspect of the plan and its potential impacts.”
School officials say their plan, approved under the State Environmental Quality Review Act, significantly reduces traffic overall, shifts school traffic to main arterial roadways, requires mandatory busing, limits the total number of students and includes extensive green technology and building practices. The environmental findings statement, they say, is a 129-page document that involved more than two years of review and TWB analysis. Dulle Remote Council members voted to adopt the WCBJ final statement Dec. 16, moving the approval 7.375” w x 7.125” h process closer to finalization. A site plan 3-24-14 approval and special permit are needed next. School officials say they’re confident in the review process and will proceed in advancing its application plans. ”

square feet of retail space. Master development agreements, Bramson said, would give a “bigger picture” view of development rather than multiple, smaller projects independent of one another. “This is no timid, incremental step,” he said. “This is a bold stroke from an ambitious city that is determined to take charge of its own future.” The area around the New Rochelle train station and the Main Street corridor would serve as two separate development “clusters,” with a master developer sought for each zone. The targeted areas for construction would include at least 10 city-owned properties as well as a number of privately-owned parcels, Bramson said. The city has to expect a growth in population as part of the revitalization of its downtown, he said, and government officials will meet with public school representatives to assess and prepare for a potential influx of new students. “Struggling cities shrink,” Bramson, a Democrat, said. “Healthy cities grow. And by planning ahead, we can grow the right way.” Bramson said that with City Council support, he would expect to have a request for qualifications out to potential developers as soon as May and a team in place as early as the end of summer. He also pledged during the speech to hire a marketing firm to help brand the city and to create a parking management team. The speech was delivered at an annual event sponsored by the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce at the Davenport Country Club. It was the mayor’s first State

describe it as “clothing protection.” “It’s a stylish, fashionable way to protect your clothes while you’re eating,” he says. Or while drinking coffee behind the wheel on your morning commute.

of the City since he lost in the election for Westchester County executive in November, and also the first since the city knocked down a proposed mixed-use development on Echo Bay after vocal community opposition and disputes between elected officials. Bramson was the sole dissenting vote when the council formally rejected an agreement with Forest City Residential Group Inc., the group chosen as developer for that project. In the fallout of that failed project, several questions remain for the city, including what will become of the former armory building there and whether or not the city will move a deteriorating maintenance yard that was to be razed as part of the project. The mayor, during a speech with a lighter-than-usual tone marked by several jokes, said he was letting City Council members take the reins to re-spark Echo Bay discussions. “Having pushed hard for the last plan, and having heard a big chunk of our community say loud and clear ‘Not so fast, Mr. Mayor,’ I respect that others deserve their chance to put forward alternatives,” he said. There is more to the city’s waterfront than Echo Bay, though, Bramson said. In his speech, he said it was time to resurrect discussions about Davids Island, the longabandoned site just off the coast of the city in the Long Island Sound that used to house the Army base Fort Slocum. The mayor also said that using a state grant, the city could complete a Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan to clearly define the goals of waterfront development. “New Rochelle is called the Queen City of the Sound, but I’m tired of that phrase being a wistful description of our past or a vague hope for our future,” he said. “I want that phrase to ring true for this generation of residents.”
Goshen for the project, officials at Empire State Development and the Orange County Partnership announced March 25. The manufacturing operation is expected to create nearly 700 permanent jobs and hundreds of construction jobs over the next two years. The privately held company plans to break ground on the project in late 2014 or early 2015 and expects to have the plant in operation by the end of 2016, state officials said. Amy’s Kitchen stands to receive a financial incentives package from the state and county, including up to $6.8 million from Empire State Development Corp. in the form of a capital grant and Excelsior Jobs Program tax credits tied directly to the company’s investment and commitment to create 681 jobs. The Orange County Industrial Development Agency has approved a $4.5 million property tax abatement over 15 years, $420,000 in mortgage tax exemptions and $6.5 million in sales and use tax exemptions on construction purchases. The county IDA also awarded $500,000 for required infrastructure improvements. Empire State Development has awarded $800,000 to aid in construction of a $1.7 million access road. Amy’s Kitchen will fund the remaining cost of infrastructure improvements at the site. Founded 25 years ago by Andy and Rachel Berliner and named after their daughter, Amy’s Kitchen has experienced double-digit growth every year since its start, according to state officials. The food company employs 1,900 workers and makes more than 250 organic products, including
a popular international line of frozen organic entrées, pizzas, burritos, wraps and bowls. “We are so excited about the opportunity to build a plant in Goshen,” Amy’s Kitchen owner Andy Berliner said in the announcement. “Geographically, it’s in the perfect spot to supply our largest customers. The potential to source so many of our agricultural ingredients close to the plant was another important factor in our decision. We also believe it’s a great area to attract excellent employees. The site we’ve chosen is beautiful and situated on the Wallkill River.” Empire State Development President and CEO Kenneth Adams in the announcement said the Hudson Valley, with its strong workforce and proximity to major metropolitan areas, “will open up the northeast markets for this large-scale manufacturer.” Adams thanked the state’s economic development partners in Orange County “for their hard work in bringing Amy’s Kitchen to the Empire State.” Maureen Halahan, president of the Orange County Partnership, a private, nonprofit economic development agency in Goshen, said the selection of the Hudson Valley site by Amy’s Kitchen owners over competing properties in other states is “a major coup for Orange County.” Halahan said the development deal bolsters the emerging agribusiness sector in Orange County, in which a total of approximately $150 million has been invested in the last year and more than 1,000 jobs have been created. Empire State Development, the Orange County IDA and the Orange County Partnership worked on the deal with the Orange County executive’s office, Hudson Valley Economic Development Corp. and other county and municipal agencies.
he says. “Yes, there is the stigma of wearing something like this,” Tanney concedes. “We want to break that. This really provides a very, very valuable function. I wanted to produce something that is very much needed that has never been done before.” Tanney is the former owner of Action Computer Systems in Larchmont, a company he started in 1985 as a computer sign business. The business evolved from distributing imported LED signage in the U.S. to developing point-of-sales computer software packages for restaurant and retail stores. Tanney sold Action Computer Systems in 2010 to a public company, but has stayed on as a consultant in the company’s Palmer Avenue office. Seeing restaurant clients for his computer business, “I saw people ruin their clothes on a regular basis” with food and beverage stains, Tanney says. But inspiration for his new enterprise came more recently in a con-
versation with his son, “a Wall Street guy.” His son had been the victim of a dining spill. “He said, ‘Dad, I just destroyed my third expensive tie this month,’” Tanney recalls. “That’s when it came to me. A lightbulb flashed on.” That was last April. Tanney spent six months developing and testing a product that could absorb the worst food and beverage stains. The result is a machine-washable polyester garment with a proprietary threelayer material design and Velcro straps for easy tying around the neck. Made in Manhattan, DressTiez comes in 35 styles. Its various design lines range in price from $30 for a classic, conservative adult bib to $100 for a limitededition, bright-red clothing protector with 1970s-vintage paisley lining. They can be monogrammed or custom-lettered with gourmand expressions such as “Mangia!” and “Bon Appétit!” While customers can order online at
the company website, dresstiez.com, Tanney says he is exploring more potential markets for his product. He plans to work with restaurants around the county to put their logos on the bibs. “We’re talking to wine companies right now. We’re talking to beer companies. This could be a promotional item for any company.” Tanney says he is also talking with two restaurant distribution companies about carrying his product. “We’re looking to create a new market that doesn’t even exist,” he says. “Yes, you’re going to get those people out there that probably never would wear it.” Fearful of restaurant spills and ruined clothes, “A lot of people alter their eating habits,” Tanney says. “The simple addition of DressTiez and you’ve protected yourself. So we are hoping to start a trend – and we’re also having a lot of fun doing it.” “I am having a blast. I believe I’m providing a valuable service to people. Some may not know it yet.”

It’s all about retaining your talent
BY DAVID LEWIS
othing sets a business back more than when a key employee at any level walks into your office and submits their letter of resignation. In most cases, it is too late to fix whatever caused that employee to suddenly announce they are about to become a former employee, and to say the least, that can be an extremely frustrating moment for any business owner. On the premise that proactive is better than reactive, allow me to offer some simple steps to consider, all designed to reduce the chances of the unwanted resignation moment. The approach I advocate is simple. It focuses on a combination of doing many little things versus any one big one, essentially creating one more item the employee needs to leave behind should they choose to leave. To be more specific, many businesses are about the company, the title and the salary, and little more. Businesses that retain their employees more than others are about the fun, the team of people, the culture, the dress code, the extra benefits, the flexibility and so on. Today, the companies that successfully stem turnover are offering flexibility in multiple ways. They allow employees to come in later than 9 a.m., as well as work from home some or all of the time. They’re OK with jeans instead of dress slacks. The pantry/kitchen has company-provided fresh fruit, snacks and drinks instead of a vending machine. Another common trait of firms with low turnover is that they find ways to positively and constructively connect their employees via company-organized and, in some cases, sponsored events. The company picnic or holiday party has now been supplemented and/or replaced with monthly happy hours, trips to the theater, movie night, and bowling and other sports leagues. While it is nice to see some firms paying the tab in full for all the above, the mere exercise of organizing these events but seeking financial participation by employees is still acceptable and can be just as rewarding. My final pitch is for employee benefits. My focus, though, is not on medical and dental coverage. Instead, this is about the myriad of options out there in the category called “voluntary benefits” — those that are offered as an option for the employee to select at their cost, not the company’s. The categories include supplemental medical coverage, extra life insurance, short- and long-term disability policies, pet insurance, pre-paid legal services, and opti-
cal and long-term care, just to name a few. One key bit of advice: When talking with your broker about these options, focus on offering them at a time other than when you renew for your medical coverage. Why? Most companies get so overwhelmed at primary insurance renewal time that they drop plans for these other benefit offerings due to time constraints. If you pay poorly and treat your people without respect, then the above measures are likely to have little impact. Most of us, though, will see measurable results over time by investing some time and effort when implementing even just some of these ideas.

Energy consortiums seek to merge into Sustainable Westchester BY JENNIFER BISSELL firstname.lastname@example.org
he energy action consortiums of northern and southern Westchester are in the process of merging their programs to become one countywide entity called Sustainable Westchester. In order to reduce energy use and costs, the consortiums develop municipalities’ sustainability programming. Now, the two plan to combine their efforts to improve operational efficiency and increase the group’s leverage when it comes to securing funding at the state level. “Most of the communities in Westchester, with a few exceptions, have the same issues related to the environment and energy,” said Herb Oringel, who founded the northern consortium in 2009. “So we started to reach out to other communities, and it grew from there.” The Northern Westchester Energy Action Consortium (NWEAC) includes a membership of 18 municipalities. The Southern Westchester Energy Action Consortium (SWEAC) represents 15 municipalities.
March 31, 2014 • WCBJ
Using an initial $3 million grant from the Department of Energy and New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, NWEAC was a leading force behind Energize New York and its financing arm, the Energy Improvement Corp. The program helps homeowners complete and finance energy efficiency improvements. Oringel said the group was filling a void in Westchester County as County Executive Robert P. Astorino has cut back on staff at the Department of Planning. Oringel’s position is unpaid. Oringel started volunteering for the town of Somers’ energy and environment committee after retiring from IBM after about 40 years. His work started off small but grew as others observed its success, he said. Originally, Oringel and Nina Orville, who founded SWEAC in 2010, intended to keep the organizations separate to encourage active participation from members. But with more ambitious goals now, Oringel said the two applied in January to modify the northern consortium’s certificate of incorporation to be named Sustainable Westchester. “Scale is very important when we go to
Albany for grants,” Oringel said. “When we have a Westchester-County-wide endorsement, it’s much more meaningful and powerful than 10 or 12 municipalities on their own.”
“We’re on the cusp of doing something very big and very important. (Sustainable Westchester) is going be a game changer for the county. To my knowledge, there is no other community doing something like this.” — Herb Oringel The state is expected to approve the group’s incorporation amendment in April, allowing the group to open in May for new
members. It hopes to add the remaining 12 municipalities in the county to its membership, most of which are along the Long Island Sound. Oringel said remaining towns likely had not joined the group because they have their own environmental groups tailored to needs along the sound. Once officially formed, the group’s next big project will likely be the development of a community choice aggregation program, which allows cities and counties to aggregate the buying power of individual customers to secure cheaper energy contracts. Similar programs have already launched in Massachusetts, Ohio, California, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Illinois. Westchester has the opportunity to save 15 percent on its energy costs, if approved by the state, Oringel said. “We’re on the cusp of doing something very big and very important,” Oringel said. “(Sustainable Westchester) is going be a game changer for the county. To my knowledge, there is no other community doing something like this. Westchester is largest county in the region and people look to us for leadership.”
It’s true. When doctors become successful, they move to the suburbs.
Who can blame them? Westchester has charming town squares, top-tier school districts and one-of-a-kind homes. But if you’re a successful doctor, you don’t only care where you live. You also care where you work. That’s why they’re drawn to Bronxville’s Lawrence Hospital Center. Over the last five years, we’ve spent nearly $50 million in renovations. S uffice it to say, that kind of money buys a lot more than a new coat of paint and some soothing wall art. Let’s start with the room people often see first: The Emergency Room. We’ve done so much reconstructive surgery on it, you wouldn’t recognize the place. Modern. Sleek. Computerized. It’s everything
you’d want in a part of the hospital we hope you never have to visit. Of course, not every visit to our hospital is for a bad reason. Sometimes it’s for a good one. And there’s no better example of that than our Maternity Ward. Our nursery is spacious enough to handle a minor population explosion. And with 23 new private rooms, their mothers get some well-deser ved privacy. Each room has been designed with soft lighting, carpeting, Internet access and a flat-screen TV. In addition to our warm bedside manner, we have electronic bedside records. A laser-fast scan of your ID bracelet tells our nurses who you are and what medication you need. It’s an extra layer of security that helps eliminate the possibility of mistaken identity. Speaking of technology, we’ve improved our image with upgraded MRIs and Westchester’s first Low Dose CT Scan. A dose so low, it delivers up to 40% less radiation than the previous model. That said, technology is only half the story. People are the other half.
In an age when hospitals focus on the almighty dollar, we still focus on the almighty patient. Maybe that’s why nationally recognized doctors and award-winning surgeons who could work anywhere, choose to work here. We don’t just talk about compassionate care, we also
live and breathe it. No wonder people think it’s healthier to live in the suburbs. If you’d like the full hospital tour, visit lawrencehealth.org. Find out why so many top doctors call our hospital “home.”

Shifting talent to prepare for the future We’ve got a couple of employees we don’t want to lose who can’t grow where they are. What do I do?
thOUGhts OF thE DAY: Figure out the talent you’ll need in the future. Look for keepers among your current employee pool. Keep employees for the right reasons. Figure out the fit through a variety of means. Every business owner needs to carve out time to work on the business, planning how to meet the company’s future needs. What kind of work will the company be doing? What jobs will people need to fill? What skills go with those jobs? What jobs will go away? Play out alternative scenarios: • Scenario A: If the economy expands versus if the economy contracts. Might call for stronger sales and marketing skills to know which way the wind is blowing and to sail ahead of it. • Scenario B: One product or service takes off; another one dies off. Might mean more research and development tied to stronger production skills in a new area, and fewer employees assigned to work on the
services that are in decline. • Scenario C: Expansion equates to investment in infrastructure at the same time cash flow dries up. Probably calls for greater finance skills. • Scenario D: Steady growth, more employees, more complex regulatory environment. Shines the spotlight on increased legal and human resources ability. Think about how your company will deal with an aging workforce, changing demographics and the need for workers to have a college level education. Brainstorming what your company is likely to need in the future gives you time to prepare. Start with your current base of employees. Look for high achievers, steady producers, and people you can count on for honesty, integrity, hard work and foresight. Talk with employees about the need to build talent for the future and challenge them to participate in that process. Get people to engage in their personal development. Use mentors to show people what the future can look like, trainers to help build skills, and coaches to work through the challenges along the way. Regularly take time to talk with employees about both the hereand-now of the business and what the future is likely to hold.
Find out why employees see themselves as connected to your company. Build on that as you consciously develop the company’s culture. Ensure the values of growth and opportunity are part of the company’s mission. Set key performance indicators that are good for the business and that reward people for making improvements: productivity, research and development, loss ratios, waste rates. Measure how much people are taking on ownership responsibilities. Look for increasing amounts of time off for the owner. Reward reasonable risk taking and ability to solve the right kinds of problems. Be intentional with training. Talk about it at every review. Ask big picture questions: • What do employees need to know down the road, and where can they go to get that education? • What training resources are available inside the company? • How does the company support people who seek education outside the company: funding, reimbursement for results, time off to study, recognition for accomplishments? As employees grow, figure out how they get promoted. Not all promotions have to be vertical. Giving employees a chance to rotate
BY ANDI GRAY
through other areas of the business can be eye opening for the individual and the company. As employees grow, it can be hard for peers to adjust. Have a formal promotion/reintroduction process, as if the employee were new to the company. Make a major announcement. Review responsibilities and benefits that go with the new assignment. Hold a networking session for the employee’s new peer class. Assign a mentor to oversee the transition. Think about the money and effort that went into training an employee for a new position. If this were a new hire, the company would carefully introduce the employee to the company, ensure the employee understood his/her responsibilities, and watch over integration with superiors, peers and subordinates. As an existing employee shifts into a new role and new responsibilities, be equally as formal: Behave as if this were a new employee.

Signature Flight, county strike deal
Lower rent, lease extension leads to company dropping suit BY MARK LUNGARIELLO email@example.com
ounty lawmakers struck a deal with an aviation support provider, agreeing to reduce rent and extend a lease at Westchester County Airport in exchange for the company dropping an ongoing tax lawsuit. Signature Flight Corp., which provides services such as fueling and parking, had sued in 2011 claiming it should have its property taxes exempted partly based on its location on county-owned land. The county, two local governments and a small public school district would have had to pay $3 million in back tax payments and lose additional millions in property tax revenue if Signature won its suit. Signature’s property at the airport is in the village of Rye Brook and within the town of Rye. The company pays taxes that mostly go to the village, Blind Brook school district and the county. County Legislator David Gelfarb, a Republican who represents the district where the property is located, said the deal benefited taxpayers and encouraged business growth at the airport. “Most importantly, we have protected
12 March 31, 2014 • WCBJ
our municipalities and schools from what could have been millions of dollars in returned taxes,” he said. Signature also agreed to reimburse $160,000 to the county and other taxing entities for attorney fees and other legal costs. According to officials, if the property became tax exempt, the village and school district would have both lost roughly $700,000 each year in revenues. Rye Brook, which has about 10,000 residents, has a general fund of slightly more than $19 million and the Blind Brook Union Free School District, which has an enrollment just above 1,000 students, is likely to have its next budget be in the neighborhood of $40 million. The county Board of Legislators, at its meeting March 24, extended Signature’s current lease through June 2026 with a rent credit for $2.8 million, or $200,000 per year. Signature’s current 10-year lease dates back to 2006 and runs through 2016. The law adopted by the board said the lower rent served as an incentive for early renewal of the current lease. Board Vice Chairman Jim Maisano, a Republican, said the deal was partly a reaction to evolving market conditions. “In a very complicated situation, this is the best we can get,” he said.
Yonkers Legislator Ken Jenkins, a Democrat, was one of four legislators who voted against the deal. He said reducing the rent translated to less revenue over the next 10 years and in turn, more of a burden on county taxpayers. He criticized County Executive Robert P. Astorino, a Republican who Jenkins said was favoring private enterprise over the public good by offering the rent credit. Jenkins said he feared the deal would set a precedent in which the other airport service providers would now have a basis to seek their own lowered rents. “It’s not $2.5 million, it’s $5 million,” he said. “Quite frankly, I don’t think it’s the right thing to do.” The board came close to finalizing the deal with Signature in December 2013 after the company met with representatives from the county, school and local governments. But just as the matter was to come up for a vote, the proposed agreement excised what was to many the essential provision: Signature’s assurance not to pursue its lawsuit. Government, school and even company representatives said the proposed agreement was changed without their knowledge and there still remains confusion on the Board of Legislators as to who cut out that
provision last year before it was added back this year. As part of the deal, Westchester agreed to reassign two leases to Signature from other fixed base operators that have space at the airport. Avitat Westchester and Jet Systems’ 10-year lease for Hangar E will be assigned to Signature, which is based in Orlando and owned by BBA Aviation plc. in London. A second lease, for Hangar M, is a bit more complex. The existing 30-year lease was signed by Westair Aviation Services L.L.C. in 1999. Westair in 2007 became a franchise of another operator at the airport, Houstonbased Million Air, which retained the right of first refusal to buy if Westair ever decided to sell. Westair had its lease transferred to Signature and now that the terms of that deal have been finalized, Million Air said it would exercise its right to have the lease assigned to them. That deal is expected to close in April, according to Million Air spokesman Joseph Carlucci, who addressed the legislators’ infrastructure committee in February. Million Air has also applied to the county’s Industrial Development Agency for a $40 million bond deal to expand its hangars and upgrade its existing facilities.

Special event: Women Making an Impact ning process. Looking to the future, she has made a significant commitment to increasing the university’s fundraising and advancement capacity, recognizing the power that nearly 200,000 active alumni could contribute toward long-term success.
BY JENNIFER BISSELL email@example.com
estfair Communications Inc. this week will recognize nearly 50 women who’ve made a local impact in 2013. Inspired by Nancy Armstrong’s recent documentary “Makers: Women who Make America,” which follows the women’s movement of the past 50 years, Westfair Communications will recognize 40 women presented by the publisher’s readership, as well as the contributions of six outstanding nominees selected by Westfair staff. Whether it’s saving animals, supporting the arts or helping a business grow, women make a profound impact in Westchester and Fairfield counties, organizers say. A Greenwich resident, Armstrong said it’s important to recognize the contributions women make in order to inspire future generations. “As women, having role models and supportive networks are critical to the goal of seeing more women in positions of leadership in this country,” she said. “Without a continued focus on this issue, progress tends to stagnate, as it has in the last 10 to 15 years.” Armstrong’s documentary made its PBS debut in February, and currently, AOL has a Makers digital platform showcasing of thousands of groundbreaking women. The event will be held at 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. April 3 at 1133 Westchester Ave. in White Plains. Sponsors include Christopher Noland Salon & Beauty Spa, Conair Corp., Bruce Museum of Arts and Science, Professional Women of Westchester, Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich and BDO professional services firm.

The Links at Union Vale
The Links at Union Vale is, as one reviewer described it, “18 holes of Ireland in Dutchess County.” It is the fulfillment of the dream held by the golfers, more than 500 members of the Irish Golf Association and 16 Gaelic golfing societies in the New York City area, who built it. The Links, constructed on a nearly treeless site with sweeping views of the Hudson Hills and Catskill Mountains, is a beautiful golf course to play. Well-known New York course architects Stephen Kay and Doug Smith, designed and built the course. They let the shape of the land — with its swells and troughs — influence the shape of the holes. It has the links land character — fast turf, the opportunity to play bump and run, lethal rough and the shaggy browed bunkering reminiscent of the Old Country. The result is a challenging course, with four sets of tees, that stretches from 5,198 yards to nearly 7,000 yards from the tips. Kay and Smith designed the course to reward ball striking and course management. Play well, play smart and you will score well. Each hole has its own risk and reward with the wayward or overly aggressive player being bloodied by rough that just doesn’t quit. Kay designed the
front nine to emphasize tactics and course management allowing players to find their game and rhythm. From the tips, the first nine holes are not overly long. The 221-yard par-3 third hole does hint though at what a player will find waiting on the inward nine. The first four holes on the back offer real scoring opportunities to the ball striker. Teeing up on the 14th though, players realize that they needed to bring one more thing to the Links, muscle. The last five holes offer the same risks and rewards as the first 14 holes, but they also offer length. From the tips, the two par-5s exceed 600 yards and two of the three par-4s are over 450 yards in length. The accuracy and length required at The Links was not a problem for Pádraig Harrington. In 2012, the touring pro tied the course record, shooting a 64. The Links opened for play in 2000 as a semi-private layout. The quality of the course was immediately noted by Suburban Golf magazine naming The Links the Best New Public Course of the Year. As the course matured, its exceptional qualities — condition, design and amenities — became more widely known. Best of Northeast Golf magazine named Links
Best of Daily Fee Properties three years in a row, 2008 through 2010. Zagat’s selected The Links for its America’s Top Golf Course in its 2012 Best in Country Guide. Serious golfers have noticed The Links at Union Vale as well. Golf magazine rated The Links 17th in its ranking of the top 100 daily fee courses in New York state. The USGA selected the club to host the U.S. Amateur sectional qualifier three different times. In 2014, The Links will host a Metropolitan Golf Association Play Day in June, as well as the first round of the Women’s Dutchess County Amateur. After a round at The Links, you realize that you have had a different type of golf experience; from the Gaelic welcome to the links land layout to the properly poured
Guinness in the pub. You also realize that, whether it’s the golf or the Guinness, you’ll be saying “once again, if you please.” The Links at Union Vale is open to the public and hosts private golf tournaments and outings, weddings and banquets. For more information, please contact Teri Stellato, general manager at (845) 2231002 or visit www.TheLinksAtUnionVale. com. The Links is conveniently located in lower Dutchess County and is 40 minutes or less from points in Westchester, Putnam and Fairfield (Conn.) counties.

SPECIAL REPORT elder care
From Wall Street to Grandma’s world BY JENNIFER BISSELL firstname.lastname@example.org
eaving an industry commonly associated with greed in favor of a more compassionate one, Lou Giampa is trading in his job on Wall Street for one inside seniors’ homes. After some 15 years primarily as a portfolio manager for Quad Capital L.L.C. and First New York Securities L.L.C., Giampa said he was ready for a change. When his grandmother was diagnosed with cancer, Giampa took it upon himself to get a certificate in nursing and become one of her primary caregivers. “When you start out on Wall Street, it’s fast paced and exciting,” Giampa said. “But as I got older and had kids, I became disenchanted. I had a hollow feeling about it. … Like they say, it’s just making rich people richer, and I started to contemplate a career change.” After his grandmother died in February, Giampa said he accelerated plans to open his own home care agency to serve other seniors and their families. Surveying possible franchising options, he landed on Right At Home Inc. and purchased the rights to serve Westchester County. The home care and assistance company has more than 300 locations across the country, including ones in the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Connecticut. Opening a White Plains office in early March, Giampa already has five clients. Giampa said he chose Right At Home primarily for its innovative programs related to rehabilitation and family involvement, among others. Additionally, the brand has a support staff of 40 employees based at its headquarters in Omaha, Neb. “In-home care was a fantastic experience for my grandma,” Giampa said, mentioning his other grandmother died several years earlier in a nursing home. “I wish this kind of service was available for her. I think it would have prolonged her life. It’s a traumatic experience to leave
Lou Giampa at his new Right At Home office in White Plains.
your home where your kids grew up.” Giampa said he expects a slow and steady growth of clients over the next several years. The firm is not yet a licensed New York home care services agency, though he expects his application to be approved within the next two years. Without the license, Giampa’s employees can’t offer assistance with hygiene or any skilled nursing services. Instead, his firm can offer companionship services like safety supervision, socialization, medication reminders, transportation, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, cooking and running errands. “Things to make life easier for the caretaker,” Giampa said. “It helps seniors main-
tain a level of independence and helps give families peace of mind that someone is there checking in.” Giampa said he charges within the industry average of $20 to $28 an hour. The average client requests three to five hours of care a day, though some request 24/7 care. Giampa said he hopes to have 100 clients in 10 years, though he cautioned to say, “It’s not a numbers game; it’s a quality game.” “More than having the greatest number of clients, it’s about having the happiest clients,” he said. “It’s very rewarding when someone gets good care.” “I definitely feel a lot better about myself now,” he added. “It’s gratifying work.”
“More than having the greatest number of clients, it’s about having the happiest clients,” he said. “It’s very rewarding when someone gets good care.” — Lou Giampa

The future of long-term care By Deepankar Mukerji
hy do we automatically talk about Medicaid when the subject of long-term care is raised? The answer is that Medicaid pays for a significant majority of all long-term care, especially in New York state. Medicare specifically does not cover chronic or long-term care, and, due to the high cost of such care, the majority of individuals do not have sufficient funds to pay for an extended period. There is also long-term care insurance, but the relatively high premiums and requirement that people are medically qualified tend to reduce its utilization. A government-sponsored long-term care program called the “CLASS Act” was included in the Affordable Care Act, but analysis showed that that it could not be implemented in a budget-neutral manner. Thus, Medicaid, the “payer of last resort,” has become the de facto long-term care financer, a situation not expected to change in the foreseeable future. Not surprisingly, one of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s first acts after taking office was to put together a Medicaid redesign team and charge it with changing the way that New York Medicaid does business. New York spends more than any other state on Medicaid, and per person charges for long-term care are almost three times higher than in California. In fact, a March 2013 Congressional report of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is titled “Billions of Federal Tax Dollars Misspent on New York’s Medicaid Program.” Although the report was not solely devoted to longterm care, it is critical of the personal care program, of the fact that spousal refusal is permitted in the state and of attorneys who perform estate planning to divest assets and create Medicaid eligibility (a phenomenon certainly not unique to New York). The report does commend Cuomo for undertaking the Medicaid redesign, and in particular, the Section 1115 waiver, which mandates Medicaid Managed Long Term Care (MLTC). The MLTC waiver was one of the central proposals of the Medicaid redesign team. The program makes virtually all home care services available only through a mandatory managed care organization (MCO) and is the major initiative to reduce and contain the spiraling costs of long-term care. It is also being implemented at an almost staggering pace, considering that it is a government initiative, with ambitious deadlines and very little lead time to ease the patients into the proliferation of new networks and procedures.
Managed Home Care New York’s MLTC program started in late 2012 in New York City, with Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties following soon after. Persons applying for Medicaid home care, adult day care or private duty nursing were required to enroll with an MCO, which then performs the necessary evaluations and sets the level and types of care to be provided. This program is being expanded statewide, with Rockland and Orange counties already transitioning to MLTC, and Putnam and Dutchess soon to follow. In fact, the current plan is to have the entire state covered by mandatory MLTC by the end of 2014. While there are a number of fears over whether care will be compromised in the name of cost savings, and whether important constitutional rights will be inhibited by the administrative roadblocks to a hearing, generally, the program has generally not cut hours or services to patients at the outset. At this point, the most significant complaint is the lengthy and bureaucratic approval and enrollment process. We have also seen one organization be suspended for enrolling people who did not need the care. There have been anecdotal reports of MCOs rejecting patients who are too needy and therefore too expensive. This is not surprising, given the objective of the program, which is to achieve capitated savings by volume, so that costs are spread over a larger number of participants in the plan.

Nursing Home Managed Care In January, the Office of Health Insurance Programs (OHIP) released a report detailing New York’s plan to include nursing home coverage in the Section 1115 Waiver. The transition to mandatory managed care for nursing homes begins in April. Under this plan, Medicaid recipients currently in nursing homes are exempt from mandatory enrollment, although they can “voluntarily” enroll. New applicants for Medicaid will have to enroll with a MCO that is affiliated with the nursing home in which they are seeking placement. Those currently on Medicaid and receiving home care services through an MCO will be limited to placement in a nursing home which is part of that organization’s network. A number of advocacy groups are concerned over the OHIP plan and have asked for a delay in its implementation. Perhaps one of the pieces that will be most difficult to implement is the transition of people who were in nursing homes, but are more appropriate for home care, back into the community.

Affordable Care Act to create a demonstration program called fully integrated dual advantage (FIDA) for recipients who receive both Medicare and Medicaid, known as the dual eligibles, to receive services. This program would provide a number of fully capitated plans for dual eligibles, meaning that all medical services being provided to them under the Medicare and Medicaid programs, including physicians, hospitals and medicine, as well as long-term care would be provided by a single managed care organization. Although this program is not mandatory, all dual eligibles will be auto-enrolled into various FIDA organizations and will have to opt out to return to fee-for-service Medicare; however, it is possible that patients will lose out on continuity of services if they suddenly are not able to utilize the medical providers they have been using because they are now “out-of-network.” New York has recently pushed back the start date for this program from July 2014 to January 2015.

In theory, managed care reduces costs by
allowing the managed care organizations to negotiate lower-cost contracts with providers, by increasing efficiency through care coordination and by standardizing levels of care. On the other hand, when applied to recipients of Medicare and Medicaid, known as the dual eligibles, the patients to be serviced by these programs are by definition the most medically needy and frail segment of our population. Consequently, the costs associated with providing care to such individuals will necessarily be higher than the general population, regardless of efficiency measures. Even though there is significant pressure to reduce the cost of a large and expensive health care network, if this population does not receive adequate care, the results would be disastrous. Only the passage of time will determine if managed long-term care is able to strike the requisite balance between saving taxpayer dollars and covering the vital needs of our elderly and medically needy citizens.

Granny snatchers beware: State adopts uniform adult guardianship act By Anthony J. Enea
n April 21, the Uniform Guardianship Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act (UAGPPJA) will go into effect as Article 83 of Mental Hygiene Law of the state of New York. Signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo last October, the law will fill a significant gap relevant to jurisdictional issues between states in guardianship proceeds and help combat the elder abuse phenomenon commonly referred to as “granny snatching.” “Granny snatching” typically occurs when, during a familial dispute, a senior suffering from dementia or another incapacity is moved from his or her home by a child or other family member to another state. Once this happened, the senior’s legal guardian was no longer legally recognized. By adopting the UAGPPJA, New York will now recognize adult guardianship orders from 37 other states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, with the jurisdictions being required to recognize a guardianship order from the state of New York. Prior to enactment of the law, if a guardian appointed in another state wished to have their ward recognized in New York, he or she would need to commence a new action in New York to re-establish incapacity and the need for a guardian. Similarly, courts, care facilities and financial institutions in other states would routinely disregard a guardianship or protective order from the courts in New York. In a society as mobile as ours, this lack of uniformity resulted in the unnecessary and time-consuming duplication of legal proceedings and a burden upon the courts. Most importantly, because New York had not adopted the UAGPPJA, “granny snatching” became more prevalent. Although New York’s adoption of the UAGPPJA does not change the state’s substantive rules regarding guardianship proceedings, it amends the Mental Hygiene Law and the Surrogate’s Court Procedure Act in such a way as to create uniform procedures for guardianships and protective proceedings. This will help significantly ease coordination with the courts of other states and provide for simpler procedures for those needing the protection of a guardianship order across state lines. The UAGPPJA essentially creates a mechanism for resolving multi-jurisdictional disputes by helping accomplish the following three goals: n Identifying one singular state court to adjudicate first-time guardianship petitions; n Establishing a system of transferring existing guardianship appointments from
one state to the other; and n Establishing a system for recognizing and enforcing guardianship orders of one state in another. An integral legal concept in the UAGPPJA is the preservation of the ward’s “home state” jurisdiction irrespective of where the individual is physically located. In effect, a state is required to recognize the jurisdiction of the individual’s home state – where he or she was physically present for at least six consecutive months immediately before the filing of the petition – and to cooperate with the home state as to a variety of issues. There are limited circumstances where
guardianship orders can be entered by another state. The UAGPPJA defines a “significant connection state” as a state other than the home state where the allegedly incapacitated person has a significant connection other than mere physical presence (factors include voter registration, location of property, tax return filings, drivers license and social relations). Clearly, this is a definition that gives recognition to the phenomenon known as the “snow bird.” Some of the other noteworthy provisions of the newly enacted Article 83 of the Mental Hygiene Law are: n New York courts are able to communicate with a court in another jurisdiction, and
the court may allow parties to participate in the communication for a proceeding under Article 83; n Cooperation between courts is encouraged. For example, a court in New York can request that a court in another jurisdiction hold an evidentiary hearing, order a person in that state to produce evidence or give testimony, and order that an assessment or evaluation of the allegedly incapacitated person be performed; n Article 83 will be the exclusive jurisdictional basis for a New York court to appoint a guardian or issue a protective order; and n Except as provided in Article 83.19, a Guardian, page 24

Program assists chronically ailing BY JOHN GOLDEN firstname.lastname@example.org
estchester County residents dealing with chronic health disorders are encouraged by county officials to join in a series of workshops in the county’s Living Well Livable Communities program. The Living Well program helps people 55 and older to better manage chronic cconditions such as arthritis, high blood pressure, pain, depression and diabetes, and enhance their quality of life and possibly lower their health costs. Formally called the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, the recurring six-week series is presented by the county Department of Senior Programs and Services
(DSPS) and the Westchester Public/Private Partnership for Aging Services. The program was developed by the Patient Education Research Center at Stanford University’s School of Medicine and is taught in more than 30 languages around the world. County officials said trained peer leaders teach participants how to manage their conditions on a day-to-day basis through a greater understanding of physical activity, healthy eating and stress management. Participants also learn how to use their medications correctly and improve communications with their health care provider and family. People taking the course may also be able to lower their health care costs by avoiding unnecessary trips or return trips to doctors and hospitals, according to DSPS officials. The workshops run two and a half hours
a week for six weeks at various locations in the county throughout the year. In 2013, 100 residents participated. Stanford University conducted a survey of 1,000 aging people with chronic conditions by following their progress for three years, according to county officials. Those who participated in the workshops showed significant improvement in their ability to exercise, communicate and maintain overall health and had fewer outpatient visits and hospitalizations. “Living Well gives people more control over their daily lives and new zest for an enriched life,” Westchester County DSPS Commissioner Mae Carpenter said in a press release. “Not only does the knowledge empower them, but when followed, it can greatly ease or even prevent their conditions.”

Guardianship — From page 23
court that has appointed a guardian of the person or issued a protective order consistent with this article has exclusive and continuing jurisdiction over the proceedings until it is terminated by the court or the appointment or order expires by its own terms. New York’s enactment of the UAGPPJA will create a predictable and expeditious process for the initial appointment of guardians in another state, the transfers of existing guardianships to other states, and the recognition of orders from other states. Additionally, it is hoped that “granny snatching” and elder abuse will be significantly reduced as a result of its enactment. While only time will tell how helpful the UAGPPJA will be, its enactment in New York is clearly an important step in the right direction. Anthony J.

MOUNT KISCO CHAMBER HONORS CITIZEN OF THE YEAR Joe Dimauro, owner and operator of Mount Kisco Seafood has been named the 2014 Citizen of the Year by the Mount Kisco Chamber of Commerce. In addition to DiMauro, the chamber will honor the Mount Kisco Rotary Club as the 2014 Outstanding Nonprofit Organization of the Year. Both will be recognized May 1 at the chamber’s 47th annual dinner at the Holiday Inn of Mount Kisco. More than 150 business owners, professionals and residents are expected to attend. DiMauro was born and raised in the Mount Kisco area and is a graduate of Fox Lane High School. After receiving a business degree from Plattsburgh State University, he worked in advertising sales before purchasing Mount Kisco
Seafood in 1980 from a friend. In 2004, Mount Kisco Seafood moved to its current larger location at 477 Lexington Ave. DiMauro and his wife, Joni, also owned and ran the very successful Fish Cellar Restaurant on Main Street in Mount Kisco from 1997-2011. DiMauro is a self-described “softie” when it comes to helping others in need. He is particularly devoted to supporting organizations that help battered women, children who suffer terminal illness, the hungry and fight breast cancer. As a participant in seven Avon Walks for Breast Cancer, he and his team of friends and family, have walked the equivalent of 10 and onehalf marathons, raising well over $100,000 to support breast cancer research, treatment and prevention education.
For years, he has also generously donated and served his high-quality seafood at fundraising events supporting a wide range of organizations, including Riverkeeper, Making Headway, Food Bank For Westchester, Mount Kisco Child Care Center and the Boys & Girls Club of Northern Westchester. DiMauro attributes his strong desire to help others to his appreciation of all the blessings he himself has received in life. The Mount Kisco Rotary Club is celebrating its 60th year of commitment to local, regional, national and international charities. It is part of Rotary International, a worldwide organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders in 34,000 clubs that provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethi-
cal standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world “Both Joe DiMauro and The Mount Kisco Rotary serve as positive examples for action in our community,” said Mount Kisco Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Caroline Loeb. “The Chamber is delighted to honor them for their outstanding volunteerism and community spirit.” The celebration will commence with wine and hors d’oeuvres at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner and presentations at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $135 per person. A limited number of group tables are available. For additional information or to register for the event, call 914-6667525 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
