Landmarked mural still in peril BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

T

o cheers and applause from arts and historic preservation supporters, the Yonkers City Council approved landmark status for an acclaimed triptych of outdoor murals only hours after the city’s buildings department condemned one of the three downtown buildings on which artist Richard Haas painted his colorful historic panorama of the city on the Hudson nearly two decades ago. The 79-year-old artist, who had returned to his hometown Yonkers earlier in the day from travels in India, was in the council chambers on Feb. 23 when legislators by a 5-2 vote approved the Richard Haas Mural Historic District at 35 and 36

Main St. and 5 Riverdale Ave., at the heart of the city’s downtown redevelopment area. But the council’s action — which later was backed by Mayor Mike Spano with a pledge to sign the law creating the mural district — and the savor of victory for three Yonkers residents who applied for the landmarking designation and their numerous supporters were shadowed by the prospect that the centerpiece of the 14,000-squarefoot mural might still be endangered by demolition.

Insurance brokers claim Obamacare hurting their industry BY REECE ALVAREZ

ith the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, there have been winners and losers. “It has been a godsend for people who were unable to afford coverage without a subsidy,” said James

Newhouse, founder of Newhouse Financial and Insurance Brokers of Rye Brook. But for those working in the private insurance brokerage industry the ACA has been anything but a godsend. “For a lot of people it really has not panned out in a way that anybody had anticipated,” said

Newhouse, whose insurance and employee benefits firm serves Westchester and Fairfield counties. “I think there was a disconnect between what people were told to expect and what really ended up happening.” The sentiment that the ACA has not worked out the way people expected is one held by many in the industry, and understandably so, said Angela Mattie, professor and chair of health care management and organizational leadership at Quinnipiac University. “The brokers have been hit hard in this,” said Angela Mattie, professor and chair of health care management and organizational

leadership at Quinnipiac University. “Your broker used to be your educator and now you have individuals purchasing insurance and the Internet providing information. Yes you are disrupting the market — it’s is a whole different market.” This dramatic shift has not been well received by small private insurance firms, said Andrew Cavaliere, president of Keystone Financial Advisors in White Plains. “The result has been a tremendous loss of income, tremendous loss of clients,” he said. “Every broker in the health insurance business is taking a huge financial hit and most of us are not going to recover from it.”

Both personally and professionally, Cavaliere said he has been negatively impacted by the ACA — from losing his coverage and providers when they were needed most to significantly impacting his firm and its clients. “The resulting economic pressure of the mandates from the health law squeezed insurance companies to cancel coverages, alter coverages or get out of the marketplace all together,” he said. “This resulted in less choice for members. It resulted in lots of people losing their coverage — a vast majority of my clients lost their coverage.” » BROKERS, page 8

At Wilmington Trust, our team has analyzed markets and economies through one-year and decade-long lenses. In our Capital Markets Forecast, we examine three trends we see developing, and explore how obstacles can also point to a raft of comparatively robust investment opportunities. Where are we now? Short term, we see a continuation of the United States’ economic leadership, with employment, wage, spending, and business investment growth all promising. Still, bloated debt levels and easing growth weigh heavily, and we expect another recession within the next five years. We envision it as shallower than the recent post-crisis downturn with, hopefully, a quicker recovery. Demographics is destiny. Long term, we expect the tables to turn, and we see the world’s leading economy at risk of becoming overdeveloped. Root causes include structural decelerations or even declines in key long-term determinants of growth, such as labor force growth, capital investment, and productivity expansion. Over the next 10 years, we expect labor force growth to continue the trend of deceleration, due

to slowing population growth, the aging of the existing labor force, and reduced labor force participation. our Projection oF a

2.25% groWth oF the u.s. economy Will decline With sloWs in laBor Force groWth

Other trends on the horizon. We see income likely to reign supreme as investor focus shifts from capital appreciation to interest and dividend income. We also see nontraditional income sources becoming more relevant. The reemergence of emerging markets is projected, with new economy stocks gradually achieving greater prominence as old-economy stocks give way.

Business and the economy intersect at Shelton event BY BILL FALLON

A

bfallon@westfairinc.com

recent breakfast at the Brownson Country Club in Shelton featured a piping-hot buffet of scrambled eggs, waffles and hash browns. For the main course, the 128 attendees took in a data-packed menu of presentations from industry leaders in hospital administration, tech manufacturing and auto sales and from an economist, Peter Gioia of the Connecticut Business and Industry Association. The event was the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce Economic Outlook 2016. Gioia, who is also CBIA vice president, said, “This is a critical year in Hartford. It is essential they get their fiscal house in order.” On the plus side he noted the collapse of oil prices “adds $1,000 in purchasing power to every family in the U.S.” while natural gas pipelines now heading to Connecticut from Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale deposit will arrive in two to three years.

“ISIS AND CHINA WE CAN’T CONTROL. BUT WE CAN CONTROL WHAT HAPPENS IN THE STATE. RIGHT NOW, OUR POLICY HAS BEEN TO LOAD THE SHOTGUN, POINT IT AT OUR FEET AND PULL THE TRIGGER.”

— Peter Gioia

“We’ve always been at the end of the pipeline for natural gas,” Gioia said. “Now we’ll have access to the cheapest natural gas on the planet. There will be enormous pressure to spiderweb plants off those pipelines. If you’re along one of those pipelines, you could build steel in Connecticut.” Gioia also said, “ISIS and China we can’t control. But we can control what happens in the state. Right now, our policy has been to load the shotgun, point it at our feet and pull the trigger.” It was a point echoed several times by others.

Representing 270 new car dealerships in the state and the 14,000 directly related jobs that he said come with them, James Fleming, president of the Greater Hartford Automobile Dealers Foundation, said, “Auto dealers are not going anywhere.” Their average-salaried workers at $60,000 per year, he said, are “very community oriented.” Dealerships, he noted, are often deep-rooted multigenerational family companies. But Fleming also said dealers are bedeviled by credit issues, taxes and regulations that include a $50,000 classification for luxury cars, which are taxed higher than other cars. He said buyers of true luxury cars — those priced above $100,000 — typically skirt the tax by buying their luxe vehicles in other states. Fleming also said, “The auto industry is back.” He said in-state dealers expect to sell $10 billion worth of cars this year, compared with $6 billion during the recession seven years ago. “We want to keep this industry healthy,” he said. “We are as big as some of the largest corporations in Connecticut.” Russ Hayden is president of ElectriCable Assemblies in Shelton, a company with 25 patents for manufacturing its tech consoles for office furniture. In the 10 years he and two partners have owned the company, it has grown from 35 to more than 120 employees. Local to his core and tieless by practice, he said, “If I showed up at my customers with a tie on they’d throw me out.” Those clients include Mohegan Sun, GE, Gateway Community College in New Haven, the University of Michigan

WCBJ

and St. Joseph’s High School in Trumbull. Hayden said he faces challenges on fronts that include safety and a health insurance bill up 22 percent this year. “That law is a train wreck,” he said of the Affordable Care Act. “Connecticut is 1.4 percent of the business that I ship, which tells me growth is slow,” Hayden said. Still, he noted company sales were up 12 percent in 2013, 29 percent in 2014, 34 percent last year and are expected to rise 20 percent this year. He added 9,000 square feet to his operations in Shelton last year. He cited the need for budget predictability and stability in Hartford. He raised the topic of family leave, saying, “Let me decide how to handle employees who need time off.” Griffin Hospital in Derby has remained independent as many hospitals are forming networks. Patrick Charmel, its president and CEO, likes it that way, saying it has led to better care ratings. He said the U.S. is witnessing a new paradigm for health care. In the past, he said, you waited until you got sick and then the health system entered the picture. Now, the incentives are to keep you healthy. Calling it “a little secret,” Charmel said, “We incentivized the wait to get sick. The sicker the better and then when they show up we do as much for them as we can, whether they need it or not. Now we need to incentivize ways to get healthy.” He said since the ACA arrived, “In three years we’ve had the slowest growth in the last 30 years.” Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti, who has served in that office since 1991, said his administration’s policies have been conducive to business and have made businesses want to grow locally. “Shelton has been that place,” he said. “As a business owner you need stability and predictability. Seniors, too, need stability and predictability. These things affect all of us. If you don’t have your financial health, you’re no good to anybody.” Albert Paolozzi, vice president and senior market manager for event co-sponsor People’s United Bank, offered springtime optimism — “Pitchers and catchers have reported” — and a policy of listening at People’s United. “The greatest story ever told is yours,” he said. “It’s about hearing and working with compassion.” The other event co-sponsor was tax and accounting firm BlumShapiro, represented by partner Thomas Walsh Jr. Walsh referenced the importance of teamwork. He noted to the networking-savvy audience that teamwork can extend to baseball; he coaches Paolozzi’s son.

Developers fight over the meaning of ‘real estate’ in Mount Vernon BY BILL HELTZEL

T

bheltzel@westfairinc.com

he old Fleetwood garage in Mount Vernon looms over Broad Street West, but in a fight that pits developer against developer the question is whether the massive deteriorating parking garage is actually “real property.” Two Fleetwood landlords sued the city and two developers in state Supreme Court in White Plains on Dec. 28, claiming that the Mount Vernon City Council improperly transferred the garage and air rights. Alexander Development Group and the Bluestone Organization have budgeted $85 million for 42 Broad, the address of Fleetwood garage and the name of their proposed 249-apartment, 16-floor building. They plan to demolish a building next to the garage that formerly housed a Metro Fresh market and a Duane Reade pharmacy for the

apartments. The project is three blocks from a Metro-North Railroad station and across from the Cross County Parkway. While merchants want to keep access to the most desirable and convenient parking spaces, the developers need the garage for future tenants. They plan to put in 15,000 square feet of retail space and add 169 parking spaces, bringing the total to 580 spaces. That’s enough, according to the company, to accommodate its residents, shoppers and people who work nearby. The battle pits New York City developers against New York City developers. Alexander Development, based in Manhattan, has built apartments in Harlem and Brooklyn. Mark Alexander, the company president, also co-developed the Horizon at Fleetwood, an apartment building a few blocks away from the Fleetwood garage. Bluestone, based in Queens, is a third-generation family firm that has built more than

5,000 housing units. Joseph Simone’s Gramatan Realty leases property near the parking garage to a bank, florist, bakery, drug store, restaurants and medical offices. His Simone Development Cos., based in the Bronx, has built office, industrial and medical center projects, such as Hutchinson Metro Center and Purchase Professional Park. Ralph Della Cava of CD

Fleetwood Associates leases property near the garage to a bank, funeral home, pizzeria, frozen yogurt shop, and restaurant. He is a partner in R.A. Cohen & Associates, a midtown Manhattan real estate investor and property manager. Mount Vernon has operated the garage for 37 years under an unusual arrangement. » FLEETWOOD, page 9

onvenience was the watchword Feb. 23 when White Plains Hospital showed off its expanded Center for Cancer Care. By expanding and modernizing the center, bringing all services and medical staff under one roof and partnering with Montefiore Health System, the hospital has made it easier for patients to get advanced cancer treatments. “We want to keep our patients as healthy as possible, for as long as possible,” Susan Fox, the hospital’s president and CEO, told a group of dignitaries, staff and supporters who assembled in the new lobby. Fox explained that bringing services close to home and providing a friendly, supportive atmosphere are key parts of the hospital leadership’s vision. Driving yourself to an appointment when you are sick instead of commuting to New York City for treatment is a huge advantage, said Tom Roach, mayor of White Plains and a cancer survivor. The hospital’s Dickstein Cancer Center was the first freestanding cancer center between New York City and New Haven, Conn., when it was built 17 years ago. Now cancer patients are living longer, creating greater demand for services. The expanded and renovated center at Longview Avenue and East Post Road is being billed as the cancer treatment hub for the whole Hudson Valley. The expansion cost about $60 million in private and public money. The Dickstein building was linked to a new six-story tower, doubling space to 70,000 square feet. Most of the new space is devoted to offices for doctors who had been at other locations, thus making it easier for multidisciplinary teams to collaborate on cases.

More infusion chairs were added, increasing capacity from 8 to 34. The room includes accommodations for families and friends who want to accompany patients during treatment. The center also features a meditation room, café, wig-fitting service and medical library. A holistic care program offers therapies such as massage, meditation and yoga. The services are first and foremost for the patients, but also are offered to family members who, administrator Una Hopkins explained, suffer stress along with the patients. The Montefiore partnership began a year ago. Health care economics make it advantageous for smaller hospitals to collaborate with large health care systems in order to gain affordable access to the best services. White Plains Hospital, for instance, cannot offer every type of cancer specialist, Fox said. But now it can bring Montefiore’s specialists to its patients. Patients also can participate in more than 500 clinical trials underway at Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care. Louanne Mitchell, 54, of Yonkers, benefited from such collaboration even before the formal partnership began. In 2013, a lesion on her leg was diagnosed as melanoma and the skin cancer had metastasized to her lungs. “They started talking to me about putting my affairs in order,” she said. Medical director Dan Costin put her on an immunotherapy, but by 2014 the cancer had spread to her brain. The news was devastating. But Costin assured Mitchell that more could be done. He consulted with colleagues at Montefiore. She underwent another surgery and was put on a new immunotherapy. For nine months her scans have been clear. Mitchell was beaming as she spoke to the crowd celebrating the formal opening of the Center for Cancer Care. Mitchell said, “I’m in full remission!”


Stamford nonprofit rallies to help Syria and Fiji

CONFLICT AND NATURAL DISASTER SPUR COOPERATION WITH BOEHRINGER AND OTHERS BY BILL FALLON

bfallon@westfairinc.com

meriCares, the Stamford-based global-response nonprofit, has mustered major efforts to help victims of war in Syria and natural disaster on the island nation of Fiji. AmeriCares has an emergency response team en route to Fiji to help with the recovery from Cyclone Winston. The category 5 storm — the strongest on record in the Southern Hemisphere — made landfall in Fiji on Feb. 20, leaving a path of flattened homes and downed power lines. AmeriCares said six people are confirmed dead on Fiji and 80 percent of the island is without power. Fiji’s government has declared a month-long state of natural disaster to recover from what AmeriCares termed a “catastrophic cyclone.” Besides its response team, AmeriCares reported it has 5,000 pounds of medical and relief supplies prepared and ready to be shipped to Fiji. AmeriCares stocks emergency medicines and relief supplies in its warehouses in the U.S., Europe and India. “The full extent of the damage is still unknown, but given the severity of the storm we are very concerned about the health and safety of survivors,” said AmeriCares Vice President of Emergency Response Garrett Ingoglia. “We have a team on the way and aid shipments ready to go.” Two major hospitals in Fiji have reported damage, including a hospital in the capital city where labor and delivery rooms, the intensive care unit and an operating room were flooded. Part of the roof of another hospital was blown off, forcing patients to be relocated, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. AmeriCares also has more than $3 million in medicine on the way to help children and families in Syria. The shipments — described as “in transit” — include antibiotics, cardiovascular medicine, intravenous fluids and diabetes medication. The shipments of medicine from AmeriCares will support the Syrian American Medical Society, which operates more than 100 medical facilities in Syria, including underground trauma hospitals. The society also supports dozens more medical facilities with medicine, supplies, equipment and medical personnel. To date, AmeriCares has delivered more than $7 million in medical aid in response to the Syrian crisis, including primary care medicines, chronic disease care medications

and intravenous fluids. Medicines have been donated by companies, including the foundation arm of Ridgefield-based Boehringer Ingelheim, plus GlaxoSmithKline and the Sanofi Foundation for NA. AmeriCares reported five years of war in Syria have destroyed infrastructure, displaced millions and put the health of millions more at risk. It said that of the estimated 470,000 war-related deaths in Syria, 70,000 have been attributed to a lack of health care and sanitation, citing data from the Syrian Center for Policy Research, a think tank. AmeriCares said life expectancy in Syria during the war has

fallen from 70.5 years to 55.4 years. “Syria’s health care system has been devastated,” said Ingoglia. “The population not only faces risks from bombs and bullets, but also from a range of chronic and acute illnesses. The medicine we are providing will be put to use immediately to help save lives and protect the health of civilians in Syria.” AmeriCares has been aiding survivors of natural disasters, political conflict and extreme poverty around the world for more than 30 years. It also sponsors disaster preparedness programs and “launches long-term recovery programs after major emergencies that restore health services and strengthen health systems.”

rant space, a city engineer earlier in the day condemned the brick building as structurally unstable and a threat to public health and safety. The city inspection followed a private structural engineer’s report submitted to council members by Rising Development five days before their scheduled vote on landmarking. In a visual inspection of the property, Neil Wexler, president of Wexler Associates Investigative Engineers in Manhattan, found that mortar bonds on the building’s brick walls had deteriorated to “sand and dust,” he told the city council. Wexler in his report said the eastern wall — on which the towering Haas mural depicts Henry Hudson’s arrival on the Half Moon  framed by trompe l’oeil architectural elements of former Yonkers buildings — was the “main concern” where bricks “are visibly un-bonded.” “The smallest ground shake,” he told the council, “will send the bricks tumbling to the ground.” Wexler recommended demolition and replacement of the building rather than repairs in unsafe working conditions caused by the extent of the property’s “distress.”  The owner’s consultant said the existing mural should not be maintained in its current location. Wexler drew the ire of some council members and spectators when he claimed that the mural had “aggravated” the deterioration because it had been applied “in an unprofessional way.” “It was done with all the correct methods and materials,” Haas said during a council

Both Cavaliere and Newhouse point to drastic reductions or outright eliminations of broker commissions by health insurers that are damaging, if not driving brokers out of the health insurance industry. “Many brokers have given up trying to work with the exchanges, they are so cumbersome and time consuming to assist anybody you discover it is simply not worth the time investment needed,” Newhouse said. “If it takes an hour or more to sign somebody up and then you are responsible to service their needs — it is very difficult to run a business if you are making $6 a month on that transaction.” “I could make more money busing tables,” Cavaliere said. For firms that have not been hit hard financially in the wake of the ACA, the law still poses challenges for the industry, said Brian Eifert, president of the Pelham-based insurance agency Eifert, French & Ketchum. “It is creating more of a hectic marketplace,” he said. “It is creating more regulation

recess. He said he has used the same mineral paint, a material developed in Germany in the 18th century for the Bavarian castle of King Ludwig I, on about 100 buildings on which he has painted murals across the U.S. “It is the best material of its kind in the world,” Haas said. As with frescoes, “It bleeds into the wall and stays porous and open and allows it to breathe, therefore allowing water to pass through.” Council Minority Leader Michael R. Sabatino called Wexler’s criticism of the mural’s application “an insult” to the artist. “I’ll have you know that Mr. Haas does murals all over the world and I would believe that they’re all standing and all in great shape,” the Democratic leader said. Terry Joshi, one of three Yonkers residents who applied to the city Landmarks Preservation Board and collected 450 signatures on a petition in support of the mural district, accused Sprayregen of “demolition by neglect” since his purchase of 36 Main St. in 2007. A leaky roof and open windows have not been repaired for several years, she said. “I think it is a clear-cut case of neglect,” said Haas. “The building was let go by the owner; it wasn’t maintained.” Both council members and landmarking supporters questioned the timing of the structural engineer’s report and of the building condemnation. Council Majority Leader John J. Larkin said the council real estate committee that he heads in November requested a report on the building’s structural condition from Rising Development. The committee granted

the owner an extension but no report was produced, leading the committee to recommend in February that the council proceed with the landmarking application “on its merits alone.” “It seems almost ironic that once it was put out to the council, a report was done” and only received by council members on the Friday before their Tuesday vote, the Republican leader said. Larkin also noted that the condemned building “withstood Hurricane Sandy when there so many other problems around the city” from flooding and related damage. “This building has been standing through two hurricanes recently and nobody has condemned it,” Joshi said. Tim Rutledge, director of Rising Development, defended the downtown developer against the criticism. “We’ve always maintained that there were structural issues to the property,” he told the council. Following the structural engineer’s inspection, they were surprised, however, by “how significant the structural issues were and are.” Council Member Dennis E. Shepherd, one of two Republicans who opposed the landmarking, said, “I hated the timing of the report. It should have been here sooner to us.” But the report was prepared by a professional whose assessment should be accepted, he added. “You always have to err on the side of safety for the people of Yonkers,” he said. “We always have to stop and think, is this privately owned?” He suggested city officials could be “overstepping our bounds” by landmarking the developer’s property. Council President Liam J. McLaughlin noted that a previous developer at the Boyce-

Thompson Institute property on South Broadway had argued that that historic brick building was structurally unsound, beyond repair and should be torn down. Yet the building is now being restored and expanded in a $35 million, 85,000-square-foot mixed-use redevelopment project by Simone Development Cos. “The loss of the mural would be a tragedy,” said McLaughlin, who cast the fifth vote that gave the landmarking law supermajority support on the council and prevented a possible veto by the mayor. Spano in a statement following the council’s vote said he was “pleased” to support the mural district and will sign the legislation. “For so many residents and visitors, the Haas murals have become the gateway to our downtown and they should be preserved,” he said. Spano said he “will work to encourage the building’s developer to save the building from the structural issues compromising the murals, so we can protect the artwork as well as the safety of the surrounding community.” Rising Development’s Rutledge said the owner would immediately erect a sidewalk shed below 36 Main St. to protect pedestrians from any falling bricks. Before the council vote, Rutledge told the Business Journal the condemned building will fall to the wrecking ball of a demolition crew. “We have to remedy it,” he said of the city’s condemnation order, “and the remedy is to demolish the building.” Fearing that outcome, Joshi tempered jubilant supporters’ congratulations after the landmarking vote. “Now the hard part begins,” she said.

and compliance issues and more cost in the system, which is ultimately forcing the carriers to change their compensation scale.” Family-owned Rey Insurance of Sleepy Hollow has been providing property, professional and at times health insurance to customers in Fairfield and Westchester counties for more than three decades, but co-owner Linda Rey said she divested her company from health insurance following the enactment of the ACA. “I didn’t want to wake up to a lawsuit,” she said. “All of a sudden all these laws came up – when to apply, how to apply. Plan dynamics changed. All that I knew about health insurance after doing it for ten years went out the window.” While health insurance was a “nominal” segment of her company’s profits, Rey said she doesn’t think the disruption has reached epidemic proportions and believes it would have by now. Others, like professor Mattie of Quinnipiac, suggest that while the ACA has brought disruption to the traditional health

insurance broker model, the net benefit countrywide is far greater. “Whenever you have a shift and something new introduced there is going to be disruption in business practices,” she said. “Is it a perfect solution? No, but is it the right thing to provide insurance coverage for our citizens? Yes.” She referenced statistics by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services stating that since the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010 about 16.4 million uninsured people have gained health coverage — the largest reduction in the uninsured in four decades. In addition, 12.3 million people are enrolled in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program as of April 2015, compared to before October 2013. As a result of the ACA marketplace coverage and Medicaid expansion, hospital uncompensated care costs were reduced by an estimated $7.4 billion in 2014, compared with what they would have been in the absence of the coverage expansion, according to Health and

Human Services. “If we don’t want to do it because it is the right thing then we need to think about it as the most cost-effective thing,” Mattie said. “Is it fraught with implementation issues? Yes. Are they solvable? Yes. Do we expect when we implement wide-scale projects like this to have implementation issues, of course, but the bottom line is we have to find a way to cover these individuals and if we don’t want to do it because it is the right thing, then we need to think about it as the most cost effective thing.” Yet for those industry insiders hardest hit by the ACA, the disruption is much more than a shift to be adapted to, it is a sea change that has dramatically altered business models that have supported small family brokerage firms for generations. “The government has effectively displaced all the insurance brokers who have been serving the community for decades,” Cavaliere said. “When you do something for 20 years and build all these little plans for hundreds of people and within a few years they are all gone you just can’t flip a switch and recover.”

Fleetwood — » From page 5

It does not own the land. Instead, it leased air rights in 1974 and built the garage in 1979. The city owned the physical improvements to the structure, according to its lease. Then in 2007 the lease was changed to limit the city’s interest to parking spaces for another 37 to 57 years. Fleetwood garage is sorely in need of renovations. At most, 38 percent of the parking spaces are used during peak hours, leaving at least 267 vacant spaces at any given time, according to a court filing by the city. The city loses about $144,000 a year operating the facility. Alexander Development bought the property for $3.2 million from Fleetwood Park Development LLC in 2014. It negotiated with the city for 18 months, agreeing in December to pay $3.25 million over the life of the deal and to spend about $3 million repairing the garage. The City Council agreed to terminate its air rights. The crux of the case is procedural. The city charter requires that the sale or lease of city real estate must be approved by the City Council by a four-fifths supermajority vote. Lawmakers voted twice, as required by the charter, approving the deal with Alexander Development by a 3-2 vote in September and a 3-1 vote in October. “In our view, they tried an end-around,” said attorney Jonathan D. Kraut, a partner with Harfenist Kraut & Perlstein LLP in Purchase, who represents the landlords. “They didn’t have the votes to make happen what they wanted to happen.” The city responded that Alexander Development owns the air rights, according to a court filing, and the city merely leased temporary air rights and parking spaces. The deal was a termination of rights, not a sale or lease of real estate, so the council could approve the deal by a simple majority vote. “They’re saying that the city of Mount Vernon doesn’t know how to pass legislation and doesn’t understand their own charter,” Alexander said in a telephone interview. “They’re trying to have a second go-around on the same issue.” He was referring to a lawsuit that was filed last year in the same court. In that case, Della Cava’s C.D. Fleetwood Associates and several residents and merchants objected to a special permit that allows Alexander Development to build the apartments. They claimed that the project would hurt businesses by increasing noise and traffic and taking away parking. Acting Supreme Court Justice Susan Cacace ruled last summer that the petitioners lacked legal standing to sue and had failed

to demonstrate how the project would harm them specifically. Alexander Development spent two and a half years planning the project and getting city approvals. It has invested $9.1 million in the project, according to an affidavit by Alexander, and had lined up an investor who would put in $27 million and was about to close on a $55 million construction loan. The new lawsuit was filed at the eleventh hour, the day before a groundbreaking ceremony and just as the company was poised to

begin construction. The lawsuit has nothing to do with the garage or City Council procedures, Alexander said, “and everything to do with causing the project to fail.” Simone and Della Cava presumably understand how critical it is to secure timely financing, he said. If the lawsuit is not dismissed quickly, “It is extremely unlikely that the construction loan will ever close or that the equity investor will ever provide any money.” Alexander Development would lose the

$9.1 million it has invested and an estimated $40 million in profits, he said. “My clients are developers,” said Kraut, the attorney who represents the landlords. “They support further development in Fleetwood and they support this project as a concept.” But they want better access to parking. Alexander said he could close on financing in April if his side wins and begin demolition immediately. The first apartments could become available in about 18 months and the rest in 21 months.

Connecticut’s last coal power plant to be replaced with natural gas

wners of the last coal-fired power plant in Connecticut, Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG), have announced plans to replace the Bridgeport Harbor Station power plant with a natural gas-fired facility by the end of the decade after more than 50 years of providing energy to the region. The news has been hailed by state and local officials as a significant environmental and financial benefit for the state and local community. “This is a true win for Bridgeport — not only adding new clean energy to the grid, but creating jobs, tax revenue and general economic activity within the region,” said Richard P. Lopriore, president of PSEG Fossil, a subsidiary of PSEG. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy called the announcement a milestone for Connecticut. “The pollution that coal creates is damaging to the environment, damaging to our health and damaging to the state,” he said. “Our state continues to show that we can meet our energy needs while decreasing our carbon footprint — we are leaders in combating global warming.” According to PSEG, construction of the new natural gas plant will create 350 construction jobs and approximately 20 permanent jobs and add tax revenue to the city of Bridgeport as well as other economic benefits. In statements welcoming the announcement of the new plant, Bridgeport Mayor Joseph P. Ganim said he expects the plant will add more than $5 million in additional tax revenue per year to the city in addition to an agreement between the city and PSEG to provide additional benefits for the city and its residents. Through a Community Environmental Benefit Agreement between PSEG, the city of Bridgeport and several community groups and environmental organizations, PSEG will

establish a $2 million fund to support projects and improvements focused on creating environmental benefits for Bridgeport residents; assign a community liaison officer to be the main point of contact with community groups and work with the community to support local and regional hiring in exchange for key construction permits and the city’s unqualified support for the new gas-fired plant. “This is a great example of the city, community groups and a local business working together for the benefit of all,” Ganim said. “Along with PSEG’s investment in this power plant and the potential for additional renewable generation, the company will be investing in local civic groups and community projects, as well as charting a course for the future of this significant property that doesn’t involve coal.” The new plant represents a $550 million investment by PSEG capable of producing 485 megawatts of electricity for Connecticut’s southwestern region. The plant primarily will run on natural gas, but also will be able to run on ultra-low sulfur distillate as a backup fuel, “ensuring fuel diversity and exceptional dependability,” according to PSEG. The company estimates construction of the plant will begin in 2017 and the new facility will be operational in June of 2019. The plant, which represents an investment of more than $550 million, is targeted to be completed and supplying needed energy to the Connecticut region for the year beginning June 2019. The plant will be at PSEG Power Connecticut’s existing Bridgeport Harbor Station site at 1 Atlantic St. It will have state-of-the art emissions control technology to reduce the plant’s environmental impact including reductions in emissions of nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide and air-cooled condensers to eliminate the use of harbor water for cooling purposes. The coal-fired plant is set to be retired by July 2021.

Here’s what makes a perfect pitch to potential investors

I

nvestors want an inspiring story from entrepreneurs and a short pitch cannot address every question an investor will have. The goal of the first pitch is to inspire not answer every detailed question. However, content that is aligned with investors’ needs will be more inspirational. So a good pitch will speak to the questions that investors have in their minds, even if only at a high level. The order, structure and detail will vary but generally good pitches include: A SOLID, ATTENTION-GRABBING INTRODUCTION. In any story the lead is critical and that is just as true for investment pitches. The opening is an opportunity to present something that makes investors want to listen to to more. From the investor’s perspective, if an entrepreneur can’t explain the opportunity up front the investors will probably never understand it. On the other hand, if the investors can understand it in the first 30 seconds, they will want to learn more. THE “PAIN,” OR MARKET NEED. There should be a strong market need, the clearer the need, the better the opportunity. The more tangibly the investors can understand the need, the more interested they will be in the solution. THE SOLUTION. The company’s product or service should directly address the need. One mistake entrepreneurs often make is to spend 80 percent of their pitch on the solution. Investors need to know what the solution is, but for this first pitch the description should be concise, so that there is time to discuss everything else. THE ADDRESSABLE MARKET SIZE. The market for the product should be at least $150 million, ideally much larger. There is no expectation that the entrepreneur will capture all of it but investors do want to understand the potential. THE BUSINESS MODEL. This describes how the entrepreneur will make money and how. They may sell a product, rent the product, charge a fee for service or sell advertisements. Sometimes the innovation itself is in the business model not the product, so investors will want to see clearly how the business will work. EXPERIENCE IN THE MARKET / MARKET VALIDATION. Feedback from the market, especially feedback from customers that addresses any

obvious weaknesses, is a powerful way to demonstrate value and show momentum. CHANNELS TO MARKET / MARKET STRATEGY.  Sometimes this is covered in the business model, but if not investors want to understand how the company will drive awareness and sales. Investors do not want to see how big 1 percent of the market is, based on the assumption that getting 1 percent of the market is easy. The entrepreneur should show that she has a concrete plan to deliver sales and value. COMPETITION.  Every product,  no matter how innovative, faces a next best alternative, a competitor. Before the very first calculator people used slide rulers. So somehow the market need is being met today, the questions are how and how is the entrepreneurial solution better. THE TEAM. Angel investing is more about the people and the team than anything else. If the market assumptions are wrong and the product doesn’t hit the mark, a good team is more likely to pivot and make the business work. FORECAST / PLANS:   A plan for spending money and for delivering returns. In a 12-minute pitch this cannot be detailed, but it is necessary even at a high level. EXIT STRATEGY:  Angel investors make money when a company is acquired so they need to know know who may be interested in acquiring the company and for how much. Entrepreneurs often don’t like thinking this way, but angel investors really care about the exit. THE ASK: Every pitch should clearly state what the entrepreneur needs from the investors. Pitchers often forget this, but it is a key part of any investor pitch. This is a long list and there will be many pages of detail behind each element. By crafting a well-told story that touches on these points, the entrepreneur will have a better chance of engaging investors so that they to delve into that detail.

Stamford reconfigures development for a new century

he city of Stamford continues to lead the Fairfield/Westchester region in developing projects that promote the concept of “smart growth” in cities. This mixture of new development takes advantage of mixing land uses by creating a range of housing opportunities and choices. It provides walkable, bikable neighborhoods that offer a real alternative to the typically suburb-commuter lifestyle. There is a combined $6 billion in new residential and commercial developments within three-quarters of a mile surrounding the Stamford train station, which now connects the city’s growing downtown with the emerging Harbor Point project. The new development puts Stamford at the epicenter of the “work, live

and play” lifestyle that many people now seek. Stamford already enjoys a high concentration of Fortune 500 companies, but new companies are being attracted by the growing younger workforce that is emerging as a result of the increase in the number of apartments that are being constructed. The median age of Stamford is 36 years, which is a full four years younger than the rest of Connecticut. The city is the home for leading employers across multiple industry sectors, including banking, insurance and reinsurance, office equipment, pharmaceuticals, consumer products, media and information technology, and retail. These new developments help strengthen the existing strong and diverse commercial, industrial and retail business base in the city that sees a day-

time population of more than 225,000 people. The $3.5 billion, 82-acre Harbor Point is a transit-oriented, mixed-use development along the Long Island Sound consisting of more than 2,360 new apartments, office space, dining and shopping establishments, a community school, several marinas, publicly accessible waterfront areas via a waterfront boardwalk, and more than 11 acres of parks and public spaces. The project also provides a free trolley to the residents of Stamford that makes a continuous loop connecting the downtown and Harbor Point area. When completed, the project will add more than 4,000 new apartments to the city. One of the apartment buildings that highlights the city’s commitment to the smart growth initiative is the preservation of the his-

toric Yale & Towne Lock Works factory buildings. These buildings were preserved through community collaboration that helped to guide the development decisions of the project. These buildings were ultimately preserved and upgraded to modern standards and retrofitted with the greenest technology and converted into The Lofts at Yale & Towne. Downtown Stamford has also seen the opening of nearly 900 apartments over the last several years and will see the start of construction over the next year of another 1,000 apartments. Summer House, 184 Summer St., a 22-story, 222-unit apartment building is set to open in the coming weeks; and 66 Summer St., a 14-story, 209-unit apartment building, opened last summer. The apartment buildings boast a Walk Score of 95, with connections to Stamford’s Restaurant Row, The Town Center, Mill River Park and popular downtown events such as Alive at Five/Jazz Up July and the farmers market. A new anchor for downtown is the development of the 31-acre Mill River Park and 3-mile greenway that connects to Stamford Harbor. The park is transforming the heart of Stamford and is providing a new model for redefining urban life and attracting young urban residents who want to work and live in close proximity without compromising quality of life. Mill River Park and greenway helps to provide the natural balance to the city’s urban environment that will dramatically improve quality of life for Stamford as a whole and particularly for the many new residents. Lastly, to provide health service to these new residents, Stamford Hospital is undertaking a $500 million expansion and upgrade. This is no ordinary expansion of a hospital. Out of collaboration with the surrounding community and more than dozen organizations, the Vita Health & Wellness District was created. The district to the south of the hospital was created with the goal of improving the health of the West Side neighborhood. One of the many highlights of the project is Fairgate Farm, which is celebrating the start of its fifth growing season this year. An area where blighted housing once stood now is a thriving urban farm. Thomas Madden was named city of Stamford’s economic development director in 2014. THE LAND USE LAW CENTER AND WESTFAIR COMMUNICATIONS, PARENT COMPANY OF THE BUSINESS JOURNAL, WILL CO-HOST A MARCH 24 LUNCHEON AND PANEL DISCUSSION OF SMART-GROWTH DEVELOPMENT FEATURING FORMER MARYLAND GOV.

Humanities are fighting ‘financial neglect’

usan Gilgore, executive director of the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum in Norwalk, traveled recently to Hartford to make a case for support for the humanities and for the Connecticut Humanities Council — called CT Humanities — which is a resource for educators, grants and literature programs. She was accompanied by Brian Fischer, the museum’s facilities and volunteer coordinator. Her remarks follow: “I would like to thank Rep. Walker and this esteemed Appropriations Committee for giving me the opportunity to speak in support of the CT Humanities. “The mansion has been a National Historic Landmark since 1971; it was built during the Civil War era and is considered one of the most significant Second Empire houses ever built in the U.S. To Susan Gilgore. File photo. put it in context of other landmarks, the Lockwood-Mathews home precedes the Newport mansions by a good 20 years. It was an architectural prototype and a wonder of new technologies. Lincoln’s White House was not as advanced. Revolutionary, no doubt. “I would like to touch upon the ‘Still Revolutionary’ concept. These are the branding words chosen by the state of Connecticut .The state prides itself in being a major destination and a tourist attraction, and for a very good reason. Among its many jewels, this state features many important historic sites such as the LockwoodMathews Mansion Museum. “The CT Humanities has championed very effectively this concept and supports historic sites all across the state of Connecticut by funding exhibitions and programs that keep our history alive and help the state of Connecticut create jobs; enhance education; and support our communities. “Some of you may have seen or read about our two most recent exhibits funded by the CT Humanities that I am so proud of: one titled, ‘What is It? Technologies and Discoveries of the Victorian Era,’ a huge success, and the still ongoing, ‘The Stairs Below,’ which has drawn many thousands of visitors from all across the region and the New York metropolitan area. This exhibition highlights the mansion’s original servants’ quarters and explores themes such as immigration, social

justice, economics and the role of women in the 19th century, themes and issues that are still of great interest in today’s society. “But sadly, like many historic sites, our museum is no stranger to financial neglect. Fifty years ago, our great institution was nearly demolished to make way for a parking lot. We must all remember that the struggle

to exist and enhance our communities is not just part of our past, but also must be central to our future. “Scholarship, being able to offer programs that contextualize our current human condition, illuminating what it means to understand our past and envision a better future in this confusing world we live in, to

me is hardly quantifiable. But to those of us in the trenches of maintaining and building better communities, it is indeed the CT Humanities that inspires us and gives us the means to continue that fight. I therefore ask you to please consider increasing the CT Humanities budget.” — Bill Fallon

Our students go far and stay here.

Over 20,000 Quinnipiac graduates have made a home in Connecticut after graduating. At a time when businesses and families are leaving the state, Quinnipiac attracts nearly 3,000 new students every year. Many go on to put down roots here, making a difference in their respective careers and in our community. Leading the way to a more vibrant future. We major in Connecticut.

HASTINGS LAWYER GUILTY IN $1.5M FRAUD CASE A 71-YEAR-OLD HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON ATTORNEY ACCUSED of stealing nearly $1.5 million from clients over a five-year period pleaded guilty Feb. 22 to three felony charges that carry a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, according to acting Westchester County District Attorney James A. McCarty. Michael Lippman of Scarsdale was charged last September by the county district attorney of scheming to defraud 13 clients who turned over money to him for estate planning and real estate transactions, including a $431,300 property purchase payment and an approximately $159,400 mortgage payment from a client looking to stave off foreclosure on his property. In all, the attorney was accused of defrauding clients out of approximately $1,487,462. County prosecutors also accused Lippman of failing to pay New York state taxes in excess of $50,000. Lippman in Westchester County Court admitted guilt on one count each of second-degree grand larceny, second-degree criminal tax fraud and first-degree scheme to defraud. A graduate of Brooklyn Law School who started his law practice in 1969, Lippman for more than 25 years served as counsel to the Bronx Public Administrator, overseeing the estates of New Yorkers who died without a valid will. In 2014, he was charged in the Bronx with grand larceny counts after the New York City Department of Investigation determined that he took for himself more than $1.5 million from intestate estates from 2005 to 2008. Lippman, one year ago, made restitution of about $146,000 to the estates of two families to settle the charges, according to published reports. Lippmann’s attorney at the time of his arrest in Westchester one year ago reportedly said the Westchester charges resulted from the Bronx investigation. His attorney attributed Lippman’s criminal acts to his severe gambling addiction. Lippman remains free on $50,000 bail, according to the county district attorney’s office. He will be sentenced June 8.

PUTNAM OFFICIAL GUILTY OF THEFT A PUTNAM COUNTY CONSUMER AFFAIRS official has pleaded guilty to theft.

Jean Noel, director of the Department of Consumer Affairs, pocketed $4,575 in cash from contractors who had been fined for operating without business licenses. Noel entered a guilty plea of petit lar-

ceny in Carmel Town Court. Judge Joseph J. Spofford Jr. sentenced her to a one-year conditional discharge. She agreed to quit her job as part of a plea agreement and pay back a portion of her salary. She has already paid $4,300 for the thefts, according to a press release from state Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman. The state comptroller’s office identified

discrepancies in a 2014 audit. State police and investigators for the state attorney general also investigated. “This arrest should serve as a reminder that those who choose to abuse their public position will be brought to justice,” state police Supt. Joseph A. D’Amico said. — John Golden and Bill Heltzel

Mayor Roach noted that White Plains is becoming a more walkable city and stressed the need to increase connectivity between downtown projects. Mayor Spano said Yonkers with its scenic waterfront and budding arts community is attracting residents from

New York City. Mayor Bramson discussed how New Rochelle is implementing flexible zoning to create a more predictable approval process for development in the downtown. And Mayor Thomas, who just took office earlier this month, said Mount Vernon is focusing on improving the quality of life in the city especially improvements to its infrastructure. “This was a fabulous program and one of the best attended KeyBank Speaker Series events we’ve ever had.

In an exclusive meeting with the BCW Board of Directors, County Executive Robert P. Astorino presented an overview of the county’s budget and offered insight on the issues challenging the county’s fiscal health. Among the topics discussed at the January 28 meeting were unfunded mandates, soaring public pensions and efforts in Albany to raise the minimum wage. Astorino noted that 75 percent of the county’s $1.8 billion budget is for unfunded programs mandated by the state leaving only 25% for discretionary spending. “Mandates are out of control,” he said. Also out of control are public pension costs which are hurting both the county and local municipalities. On the controversial issue of raising the minimum hourly wage in New York State to $15, Astorino said it “will definitely put businesses out of business.” Astorino outlined what his administration is doing to keep the county’s fiscal house in order noting that there

has been no increase in county tax levy for the past six years which he said helps keep spending in check. On the economic development front, he said 2015 was a record year for the County’s Industrial Development Agency (IDA), which supported 14 projects with total private investment of more than $842 million.

UBS mortgage in hands of special servicer BY ALEX SOULE

A

Hearst Connecticut Media

$156 million mortgage on the UBS building in downtown Stamford is in the hands of a “special servicer” that works through problem loans, according to a report from an analyst firm that tracks commercial mortgage securities. UBS employed 1,500 people in Connecticut as of last June, according to the most recent data from the state Department of Economic and Community Development, with the company in the process of exiting its longtime trading and investment banking offices at 677 Washington Blvd. to take space in the Royal Bank of Scotland building across the street sufficient for fewer than 700 people. UBS also has smaller wealth management offices at 750 Washington Blvd. in Stamford and in Greenwich and Westport that currently list about 135 advisers, not including support staff. Built in 1996 adjacent to Stamford’s MetroNorth station and totaling nearly 700,000 square feet of space, the UBS building has been listed for lease since the fall of 2014, with broker Cushman & Wakefield having yet to report any tenants for the building. The building’s main tower has a dozen floors ranging between 20,000 and 40,000 square feet of space on each level, along with three more large floors encompassing more than 100,000 square feet each, including the cavernous trading floor. According to Trepp, a $156 million mortgage on the UBS building is now in the hands of CWCapital Asset Management, a Bethesda, Md., firm with a New York City office that as of September was marketing $2.1 billion in loans secured by commercial properties across the United States, including 4.7 million square feet of office space. “No reason for (the) transfer has been provided yet, but the financials behind the property have been slipping for a while,” said Sean Barrie, an analyst in the New York City office of Trepp. “As the servicer, (CWCapital’s) main goal is to find the workout strategy that will return the most money back to the bondholders. They’ll try to remedy low occupancy and financials before pushing for a sale.” UBS, which is on the hook through December 2017 for its lease, has paid $18.2 million in rent annually on the building between 2004 and 2013, the most recent year for which payments were listed in the Trepp report, or nearly $27 a square foot.

Wells Fargo is listed as the master servicer for the UBS mortgage, which has never been listed as delinquent and which has been paid down nearly a third from its securitized valued of $230 million when it was originated in 2004, with the loan scheduled to mature in October 2016. The loan currently has an interest rate of 6 percent with payment installments due monthly. — Includes prior reporting by Neil Vigdor. Alex Soule is a reporter with Hearst Connecticut Media.

WESTCHESTER & FAIRFIELD COUNTY

BUSINESS JOURNALS Putnam View

A stronger business community is key to prosperity BY JENNIFER MAHER  

J

udging from the sales tax receipts, Putnam County is facing a pretty strong economic challenge. In 2015, we were the only county in the Hudson Valley that saw sales tax collections decrease more than 3 percent. This is a distressing trend and it’s important to draw the right conclusions from the data. Putnam’s sales tax levy is relatively high, at 8.375 percent. It’s possible to draw the con-

clusion that the higher tax rate is part of the problem — after all, some upstate counties like Saratoga, with its 7 percent tax levy, posted substantial increases in tax receipts last year. But Ulster County, which increased its tax to 8 percent in 2014, saw one of the largest revenue increases also, bringing 4 percent more into their coffers than in the past year. The formula for higher sales tax receipts would thus seem to be more complex. It’s surely not a simple matter of raising rates to increase revenue and it might not be

wise to lower them either. Some attribute the lower sales tax revenue to lower gas prices, because there has been a substantial drop in the taxes paid on a gallon of gas. In Putnam alone that accounted for a $2 million decrease, enough to account for the shortfall in this year’s numbers. I submit that relying on gas station revenues is not a good plan for a healthy county economy. We need to promote industry, bringing in a larger and more diverse business base that is more resilient to the quirks of the econ-

omy. Our communities need to welcome commercial enterprises and not handicap them with zoning and signage restrictions, and we need to better cultivate the tourism potential of being so close to 8 million potential customers in New York City and its suburbs. We’ve been driving the economic train with the brakes on for far too long. Jennifer Maher is broker/co-owner of J. Philip Commercial Group in Mahopac and chairwoman of the Putnam County Chambers of Commerce.

HRHCare joins task force

H

RHCare, a health center based in Peekskill that serves low-income patients, has joined a task force that is trying to create more cost-effective patient care. Joining the Health Care Transformation Task Force will help the health center “ensure that more patients in medically underserved areas are receiving the care they need,” Anne Kauffman Nolan, president and CEO, said in a press release. The Health Care Transformation Task Force is a kind of think tank that identifies the best health care practices. It intends to develop policies and programs that would expand health care services while keeping costs down. The task force brings together players from every sector of health care, including patients, medical staff, insurers and suppliers. Each player in the health care market has different incentives, to either keep costs down or prices up. A key goal is figuring out ways to encourage everyone to hold down costs, while maintaining or improving health care and share the savings. More cancer screening programs, for example, might cost more money upfront but, by detecting the disease early, save money and lives eventually. Better screening for diabetes might help a patient stop the disease before it takes hold or treat it more effectively before the ill effects and the costs spiral out of control. The task force expects to see tangible results by 2020. — Bill Heltzel

Pickwick Plaza extends its welcome mat BY BILL FALLON bfallon@westfairinc.com

W

ith a bit more than 3 acres fronting Greenwich Avenue at the corner of Greenwich and East Putnam avenues, Pickwick Plaza has until now remained a quiet presence in a bustling, designer coat-cosseted neighborhood. Built in the 1970s to house Xerox headquarters, it was something of a funless cypher along a strip that thrived in the popular imagination — and in reality behind some storefronts — as platinum fantasy. That is changing with an ongoing $20 million upgrade that has opened Pickwick Plaza to Greenwich Avenue via a major retail real estate space (or spaces depending on subdivision). The work is also remaking the office element of Pickwick Plaza and, when phase 2 is completed, will further open the property to the public with what Manhattan-based owner Kensico Properties described as a “living wall” of growth along a newly made entry on Greenwich Avenue. In Pickwick’s building No. 3, the work is “substantially complete,” said Kensico’s Nancy Lara, who toured the property recently with the senior property manager, Glenn Haber, and the buildings’ engineer, Danny Kilkullen. Views in No. 3 include the Long Island Sound and, owing to the height, a good deal of Long Island beyond. “It’s the corner of Main and Main,” said Lara. “You could not have a better location.” The site’s three buildings possess 280,000 square feet and are now about 66 percent filled. The mostly business-lease equation has remained viable for some time, attracting an A-list of clients that today includes Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan Chase, Merrill Lynch and Sotheby’s International Realty. (Sotheby’s is part of Pickwick Plaza’s original retailing layout on East Putnam Avenue.) Lara said future marketing efforts will target similar tenants. “We have had interest from two or three hedge funds just in the last year,” she said. Kensico Properties bought Pickwick Plaza, reportedly for $235 million, in 2006. Lara said at least part of the impetus was to diversify north of Manhattan, where Kensico owns several properties. That diversification also includes ownership of 55 Railroad Ave. in Greenwich. In 2014, Kensico Properties initiated the current upgrade that includes halls, bathrooms, elevators and entries. There are also upgrades to the site’s 850-car garage, which

features five levels and which is partly available for public use in the retail-centric section of town where parking can be tough to find. Newmark Grubb Knight Frank in Greenwich is marketing the new retail space through the efforts of Jessica Curtis. It is being offered in footprints of up to nearly 8,800 square feet or as small as 1,904 square feet. Jay Hruska of Stamford’s Cushman & Wakefield Inc. office is leading the marketing effort for the office space, about 100,000 square feet of which is available. “You never knew it was here or you never knew it was this big,” said Lara of the plaza.

“But it had become antiquated. It did not have the amenities to match the location. “We’re modernizing everything,” she said. “We’re bringing the property into the 21st century.” She said the next phase involves upgrades for buildings 1 and 2 and for landscaping. The architect is Stamford-based Perkins Eastman. Addressing the side of the property that fronts on Mason Street, Perkins Eastman in a statement said renovations there “will include an improved pedestrian connection to the street with a new building approach and landscaping.”

The simple approach to making money with your blog

e have all been that blogger starting out who feels like there’s a better chance of finding a unicorn than making money with our blog. To many bloggers, making money with a blog is a daunting task with what appears to be much work for little reward. They have no idea what to do and find themselves going from opportunity to opportunity just to make some extra money here and there. Within that previous statement lie two secrets: how to fail and how to succeed. The truth about making money with our blogs is that most people overcomplicate it. If bloggers could make money by making their plans as complicated as possible, some of them would be millionaires from their plans alone. Complicated procedures make us feel accomplished because they take a lot of effort to contemplate. Simple projects are quicker to think of, so, on the surface they don’t seem as valuable. However, the simple plans work. So if you want to make money with your blog, then keep reading. LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES THAT WORK My definition of an opportunity that

works is an opportunity that some people have leveraged to make six- or seven-figure incomes without the golden handcuffs. Self-publishing eBooks and creating training courses are two such avenues. It’s easier nowadays to find out if opportunities work because numerous people post case studies online detailing the money they make from specific opportunities. RIDE WITH ONE OPPORTUNITY This is the part of the blogging journey that breaks most bloggers and turns others into sensations. With so many possibilities readily available, it is easy to try leveraging them all, get overwhelmed and then self-combust. A classic example of over-expansion gone wrong is social media. In an attempt to master social media, people will try to master all of the social networks at the same time. Attempting to learn Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Periscope at the same time is just like trying to learn Spanish, German, Italian, Russian and Romanian at the same time. Just as it wouldn’t make sense to master those five languages at once, it wouldn’t make sense to try to learn and mas-

ter five social networks at the same time. I got good on social media because I focused all of my time on Twitter, mastered it and then it was easier for me to learn how to master the other social networks. HIRE FREELANCERS Once you decide on an opportunity, you need to hire freelancers to lighten your workload. After I mastered creating and marketing my online training courses, I went into self-publishing. When you self-publish a book, there are several things that must be done. The book must be written and formatted. There needs to be a book cover and the description needs to be appealing. Many things go into a successful book and they can take up too much of your time. When I self-publish my books, I never worry about the formatting or creating the book cover. I have freelancers do those tasks for me. In fact, I have an army of freelancers who perform various functions within my business. Having the army of freelancers gives you back an entrepreneur’s most valuable resource: time. With extra time, you can write more books if that’s what you want to do, find more time to market your books and

FCBJ

think of out-of-the-box ways to turn your business into a success. One of the reasons people don’t think out-of-the-box is because they don’t have much time to do so. Hiring freelancers allows you to focus more of your time on the work that leads to the best results. IN CONCLUSION You may decide to create a specific product, offer a particular service or do something else. However, you must choose one opportunity and ride with it. If you decide to self-publish books, you must ask yourself how to get more sales specifically for self-published books, how to speed up the writing process and similar questions. You must ask those types of questions for any opportunity you pursue. The opportunity you pursue will then impact the type of content that shows up on your blog and what you promote to your audience. Get clear on the one opportunity you will pursue and you will know where to allocate your time.

According to CoreLogic data for December, “4.01 percent of mortgage loans were 90 days or more delinquent in the region compared with 5.21 percent for the same period last year, representing a decrease of 1.20 percent.” CoreLogic works with 22,000 taxing entities nationally to facilitate the exchange of tax information and payments. “It is this infrastructure that provides the scale necessary for optimizing the connections between taxing authorities, mortgage lenders and property owners,” the company said. — Bill Fallon


ASK ANDI

BY ANDI GRAY

Family business: Should I stay or should I go? I am working in the family business for my parents. I don’t have any shares and just general promises that someday it will be mine. I don’t agree with what my parents are doing and think they’re making some serious mistakes that could make this a tougher business in the future. What should I do? THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: Kick them out. Leave. Work together to fix the problems. Decide how much you want to work in this business for the long term. You do have options to consider. Start by taking the direct route: ask your parents to leave and find out what are their barriers to doing so. Often there are a mix of issues at play — financial dependency, fear of losing control, loss of something important to do and worries about leaving children alone to tackle difficult problems. Make a list of issues and tackle them one at a time. If it’s financial, work with a financial planner or other skilled financial adviser to

help your parents estimate what they need for a nest egg. Identify the gap between what they need and what they have at present. Work out a plan to pay into that gap over a period of time, keeping in mind that if your parents held onto their current shares of the company they’d keep all of the profits each year anyway. Negotiate to have your parents turn over shares as the gap shrinks or put the shares in trust with an agreement on turning over shares as the financial gap is paid off. If the issue is loss of control, it’s time for a serious conversation about ensuring the future of the business. This is probably the toughest issue to tackle after dealing with financial gaps. Nothing is certain. Your parents can’t control the future, but they can take responsibility for doing their part to ensure the business has a future. If the business doesn’t have a succession plan it won’t survive. If your parents stand in the way of securing successors, they will be responsible for losing the business. Consider outside help dealing with this one — it’s complicated and not totally rational. If your parents are still able to come to work, make sure their job is well defined and

in their wheelhouse. Talk about the roles they can play doing meaningful work, providing advice and acting as a sounding board. If they feel that you’re paying attention, they may also gain confidence that you can learn enough to run the business without repeating the same problems and mistakes they did. If you can’t break through, consider doing something else. As you negotiate with your parents, knowing you have other options evens the playing field, strengthening your hand. You may feel that it’s essential that you stay because without you the business might fail. That’s not your responsibility until they agree to turn it over to you. Ultimately you are responsible for your life and pursuing your dreams, just as your parents have been responsible for pursuing theirs. Build a plan to get from now to the future, including turning over ownership. Engage with your parents, making a list of things that have to happen. Build a checklist. Ask for a written agreement that as progress is made shares will be turned over to you. Set a timeline so that both you and your parents can see if the plan is on track. Include things such as

building up reserve funds, having a strategic and tactical 3-year plan, eliminating debt, building a management team and ensuring that the right outside advisers are in place. Get someone you can both trust to act as an independent scorekeeper and referee to help you build and monitor the plan. Make sure you want the business. Ownership of a business can be risky and demanding. It’s a big shift to go from an employee with a paycheck to the decision-maker with responsibility for navigating the future while keeping the business safe and on track. LOOKING FOR A GOOD BOOK?

WESTCHESTER & FAIRFIELD COUNTY

BUSINESS JOURNALS IN BRIEF

COUNTY RECEIVES LION’S SHARE OF $20M TRANSPORTATION GRANT As part of federal efforts to improve air quality and reduce traffic congestion across the state, Fairfield County will receive more than half of a statewide $20 million federal grant to bolster the state’s infrastructure. “These grants combine two of the most critical issues of our time: transportation and the environment,” said Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in a statement announcing the grant recipients. Throughout Connecticut, 10 municipalities and three transit districts will share the

$20 million grant awarded under the Federal Highway Administration’s Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program. To qualify, municipalities must demonstrate that their projects will result in reduced vehicle exhaust emissions and, at the same time, be cost effective. According to the Governor’s office, the transit projects will assist in retaining current transit users and attract new ones by providing additional bus routes in heavily traveled corridors along with improved realtime passenger information signage at major

hub locations — resulting in less personal automotive use. The three largest grant allotments are of $3 million each and will go to support projects in Bridgeport, New Britain and Stamford. In Bridgeport and Stamford the funds will be used to upgrade traffic signals along several avenues and streets. Greenwich and Norwalk will also use $2 million and $2.5 million, respectively to improve traffic signals as well as roadway weather sensors and signage to improve traffic flow in Norwalk. Nearly $400,000 in funds will be shared between the Greater Bridgeport and Housatonic Area Regional transit systems to purchase real-time bus passenger information signage at major hub locations in Bridgeport and fund the creation of a bus route in Western Danbury. “We must keep working to provide a bestin-class transportation system,” said Malloy.

“The future of our state hinges on it.”

BLUMENTHAL CALLS FOR PROBE OF ‘RUNAWAY’ AIRLINE FEES U. S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal is leading a charge against what he calls “hidden and runaway” fuel surcharges and airline fees being shoveled on to consumers by the airline industry despite plummeting fuel costs. “It is time for the (U.S. Department of Transportation) to crack down on continued unfair and deceptive charges by airlines,” Blumenthal wrote in a Feb. 22-dated letter to Anthony Foxx, transportation secretary. In his letter, Blumenthal said that according to the International Air Transport Association, airlines are expected to reap an estimated $33 billion in profits in 2016 — nearly double the $17.3 billion in profits the industry collected in 2014. “Yet the price of an airline ticket remains sky high and out of reach for far too many Americans,” Blumenthal said. In his letter, Blumenthal called on the department to investigate the way airlines calculate surcharges and fees, which he claims can nearly double passenger fares when consumers seek to redeem frequent flier miles. “There have been reports of consumers seeking to redeem loyalty miles only to be hit with hundreds of dollars in confusing charges at check out,” he said. According to Blumenthal’s letter, in 2012, the Department of Transportation prohibited airlines from imposing additional “fuel charges” unless they could be directly linked to the additional cost of fuel. Not coincidentally, as fuel prices declined, most airlines dropped “fuel charges” and began assessing consumers other vaguely worded charges such as “international/domestic surcharges”, and “carrier imposed charges,” which seemingly have no relation to any additional costs borne by the airlines. “These seem to be the same bogus charges, simply by a different name,” he said. “This anti-consumer practice shrouds the true cost of airfares and can deceive consumers searching for the best deals.” Blumenthal referred specifically to British Airways and Delta Airlines and the vague language they use to explain the reasoning behind their surcharges. As a member of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, the panel charged with overseeing the aviation industry and consumer protection, Blumenthal said he was eager to ensure that airline passengers receive reliable service at a fair and reasonable price and plans to make the issue a key priority as the committee crafts a long-term measure reauthorizing aviation programs. — Reece Alvarez

survive, as long as it has the resources to keep the doors open. Before embarking on an ambitious growth phase, it is important to carefully plan for and evaluate a young company’s cash reserves. TEMPER ENTHUSIASM FOR ACQUISITIONS Yes, an acquisition can be a shortcut to growth and with so many baby boomers reaching retirement age, a great many private companies are for sale. But it is very important to guard against the common traps that befall a young entrepreneur making his or her first acquisition. Among them: Preoccupation with “chasing the deal,” even to the extent that aspects of the existing business are ignored; performing insufficient due diligence on the business being acquired, possibly while under pressure to close the deal; taking on too much debt; and not planning sufficiently for integrating the acquired firm’s employees and operations. USE CAUTION WHEN RELYING ON INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS Pressed to finance growth, entrepreneurs sometimes elect to fill some functions with workers classified as indepen-

dent contractors rather than employees, thereby saving on payroll taxes and employee benefits. Be aware, however, that the rules defining which workers can legally be classified as independent contractors are complex. Federal and state agencies are cracking down hard on businesses that misclassify employees. The financial penalties for improperly classifying a worker can be ruinous. The issues addressed above cover some of the steps that can help an emerging company safely grow. Entrepreneurs who have triumphed over the startup phase and are poised to lead their organizations to greater success should take pride in their accomplishments, while also guarding against the overconfidence that can blind them to potential pitfalls on their path.

BUSINESS JOURNALS SPECIAL REPORT

Recruitment & HR

BY ROBERT G. BRODY AND KATHERINE M. BOGARD

Paying gal/guy Fridays offers distinct challenges

M

ost companies have a girl or guy Friday who does everything. While this employee is essential to your company, the question is: Do you pay him or her a salary or by the hour? In most cases, the answer should be by the hour. And if he/she works more than 40 hours a week, a mistake can really add up. To determine if “Friday” is exempt from overtime, you must determine if there is an exemption from the normal rule that requires all employees to be paid overtime after 40 hours. Although there is an administrative exemption for white-collar employees under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the exemption itself is rather misleading; “administrative” is not as all encompassing and simple as it sounds. To qualify for the administrative exemption, all of the following must be met: ■ The employee must be compensated on a salary or fee basis of not less than $455 per week (expected to increase to $970 a week at some time in 2016); ■ The employee’s primary duty must be the performance of office or nonmanual

matters of significance. Gal or guy Friday often meets the first two requirements, but not the “exercise of discretion and independent judgment with respect to matters of significance.” “Discretion and independent judgment” involves the comparison and the evaluation of alternative possible courses of conduct and effectuating a decision after the possibilities have been considered. “Matters of significance” refers to the level of importance or consequence of the work performed. Usually, such actions must put the company’s money at risk and not just a nominal amount. To exercise independent judgment and discretion, the employee must be able to make an independent choice free from direction or supervision or alternatively make an effective recommendation to take action. For instance, while the administrative assistant may not have the final say on whether the company adopts a particular policy, his or her recommendation is strongly considered and given great weight. This does not include the mundane, such as where to buy lunch or what kind of office supplies to stock. Rather

IF YOU JUST REALIZED THAT YOUR 50-HOUR-A-WEEK ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT IS NONEXEMPT, YOU ARE PROBABLY WONDERING WHAT TO DO. work directly related to the management or general business operations of the employer or the employer’s customers (and not to production of the company’s product); and ■ The employee’s primary duty must include the exercise of discretion and independent judgment with respect to

it refers to serious business judgments which could cost the company a significant percent of sales or costs. Some Fridays are more likely to fall within the administrative exemption than others, for instance, an executive assistant who controls who sees the business owner, what

issues will be presented and how much time will be allotted to address an issue. This is akin to a president’s chief of staff. Under the FLSA, if the employee is misclassified, you owe unpaid wages for hours worked over 40 per week. And, since you thought the employee was exempt and did not track his or her hours, the employee’s best guess on the number of hours worked will likely govern. In addition to back wages, the employee is entitled to liquidated damages equal to 100 percent of the wages owed and to attorneys’ fees. The FLSA has a twoor three-year statute of limitations depending on willfulness. State laws, however, may extend the statute of limitations; New York has a 6-year statute of limitations. If you just realized that your 50-houra-week administrative assistant is nonexempt, you are probably wondering what

FCBJ

to do. Employers in similar situations have used several approaches, but this must be handled delicately. It is likely that the employee will need to be reclassified. In that case, how you communicate the change can help minimize your exposure. Also, remember not to create a “smoking gun” documenting possible violations. Seek experienced counsel to develop the best strategy for your circumstances. If handled properly, your employee will see the change as fair and move forward rather than looking for past mistakes.

Making corporate operating principles count

I

t’s easy to make resolutions. Many are made and few are kept, especially if they are intended to trickle down through an entire corporation or organization. Often much time and resources are spent writing lofty mission statements and defining operating principles, only to hang them on the wall or place them on a website somewhere, without ever managing to actually implement them into practice. To go beyond the theory and wonderful intentions, every employee needs to establish a personal connection with these goals as mere slogans conceived with the best of intentions that don’t change the trajectory of a company or organizational culture. It requires genuine commitment and consis-

tency before mission statements or operation principles become inherent corporate values. The principles have to become a way of life, guiding tenets that people take to heart and live by day by day. At Curtis Instruments in Mount Kisco — a privately held international engineering company specializing in integrated systems for electric vehicles — we devised a set of 10 Points, our corporate operating principles, about 30 years ago. We took them seriously from day one. The Curtis 10 Points were to express not just who we are as a corporation, but what kind of company we wanted to be in the future, what we believed in and what our ideals were. In large part, this was the combined vision of our founder, Edward M.

Marwell and our management team under the guidance of the human resources Vice President Anne Papaelias. For us, these 10 Points are working because they became firm core values. Our current CEO and company president Stuart Marwell takes great care that we keep to these ideals. His frequent directive is, “Always do the right thing. When in doubt, look at the 10 Points.” That’s how these principles became part of the Curtis global culture for every employee and manager. The results are clear: Technical leadership as an American exporter, high employee morale, low employee turnover, reciprocal loyalty between employee and company, a strong positive impact on the local community, steady

growth and global sales success. In 2015, the New York State Society for Human Resource Management and the Best Companies Group ranked Curtis as one the top five “Best Companies to Work for in New York” in the large employer category. This was the third time the company has received that award. We often are asked what we did to achieve such success and we always have the same answer: Our Curtis 10 Points, a unique set of corporate principles that drives product quality, excellence, ethical behavior, global citizenship and community involvement. The first step to implementing these principles is to believe them intrinsically. The owners and senior management took these points most seriously. They meant every word and were committed to achieve these visionary goals. Curtis communicated and internalized them within the entire organization. Everybody understood: This is who we are. This is how we want to be globally. This is how we want to interact with each other. THE CURTIS 10-POINTS OPERATING PRINCIPLES: 1. Our people are our most important resource. 2. Our customers are the source of our well-being: every person in the company is responsible for exceeding customer expectations. 3. Our products must embody the best technology that is available, while meeting the needs of our markets. 4. We strive to design and manufacture only one level of quality — the highest. 5. Each person in the company is responsible for its progress and each person must share in its success. 6. As a global company, we recognize that strength comes from the diversity of our culture. 7. We believe in a work environment ,which encourages and permits each person a sense of his/her own worth. 8. Relations with colleagues, with customers and with vendors must be conducted with integrity and fairness. 9. Creativity in our engineering and in all aspects of our activities is the most essential ingredient of our progress. 10. Curtis companies are citizens of the larger community and we have a responsibility to contribute to its well-being and progress. It’s what we say, what we mean and what we do.

Online presence and referrals key to getting a job

T

here are emerging trends that are significantly impacting the hiring process for both individuals who are looking for work and companies who want to hire new employees. Job seekers are running up against more barriers than ever to getting interviews and securing job offers. First, Julie Jansen most employers rely on the use of applicant tracking systems (ATS) to source and screen candidates. This means that job seekers need to tailor their skills and achievements on their resume for each job they are applying for, ensure that their LinkedIn profile captures all of the necessary keywords and fill out long applications before they ever talk to a human being at the company. Unfortunately, many job seekers don’t realize how many online applications companies do receive, with a large portion of the candidates unqualified for the job. Additionally, most companies have open jobs yet they are slow to hire for two reasons — they believe that the “perfect candidate” exists and they are fearful of making a poor hire. As a result, companies are asking job applicants to go through numerous interviews, take psychological and personality tests, go through background checks and solve business cases or give formal presentations on the spot. Finally, most companies will Google job candidates to see how they communicate their value proposition or brand on social media, whether it be LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. If a candidate posts inappropriate or overly opinionated information or he barely has a presence at all, this will negatively impact his chance of being considered as a candidate. Therefore, it is important to create the right impressions online as it is nearly impossible to eliminate what is coined “digital dirt.” At the same time, employers are even more interested than ever in hiring employees who possess interpersonal business competencies such as oral communication, conflict resolution, management and leadership skills. Millennials, born 1980 to 1995, are the largest generation in the workforce today according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and this number will increase rapidly in the next decade. Millennials value user experience, personalization,

contributing to meaningful causes and are impatiently opportunistic. If they don’t see their values being met from the very beginning of their experience as a job candidate, they will happily move on to the next company. Technology is dominating work and life in every way and if a company doesn’t appear to be keeping up in this arena, millennials will discount them as a viable employer.

Whether an employer or a job seeker, one thing that hasn’t changed is the need to build and nurture a network throughout one’s life. Despite the widespread use of ATS software, companies who are trying to hire employees are more successful when they rely on referrals to source candidates. In LinkedIn’s 2015 U.S. Recruiting Trends Survey of company decision makers who have hired people, referrals were the primary source of hires over the last three years. As for job seekers, while applying for jobs online is usually necessary, it is much more effective to connect with people who

can help facilitate introductions to decision makers within organizations. In short, the expectations that employers have of job candidates and those that job seekers have of employers are high, and the landscape is competitive for attracting talent and for getting interviews and job offers.

Franklin Street Works Features Art, Conversation and Community Now celebrating our fifth year, Franklin Street Works contemporary art space and café is proud to be a welcoming venue for communities to experience innovative, museum-quality contemporary art in Stamford. Our award-winning exhibitions on topics such as immigration, financial economies and gender identity contribute to the international arts dialogue and express a strong curatorial vision led by Terri C. Smith, creative director. The adjacent Franklin Street Works Café serves as a complementary social gathering place, featuring in-house-made lunch, brunch and baked goods designed by Chef Erin Emmett. The menu, which receives four stars on Yelp, highlights locally sourced, fresh ingredients, a full espresso drink menu, drip coffee by Brooklyn Roasting Company as well as wines and craft beer. FSW’s audience and member base continues to grow — more than 35 percent in 2015 — from word-of-mouth and our unique community collaborations.

The exhibition will bring together work by contemporary artists who use popular music as a medium, subject and reference point for activist messages.

GOOD THINGS HAPPENING FRIEDMAN RECEIVES LEADERSHIP AWARD MANUFACTURERS ELIGIBLE FOR UTILITY GRANTS Two manufacturers are eligible for economic development grants from Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. USAI Lighting LLC was approved for a $200,000 Business Retention for Manufacturers grant and Hudson Valley Lighting LLC for a $100,000 Building Revitalization grant. USAI Lighting, a research and development manufacturer of LED fixtures, is expanding and upgrading its New Windsor plant with a total investment of $6.5 million resulting in the creation of 100 new jobs by 2019. Hudson Valley Lighting manufactures traditional and vintage design lighting fixtures and is restoring an abandoned 260,000-square-foot office building in the town of Wappinger to serve as the company’s East Coast headquarters. The $17.5 million project will also house manufacturing, research and development, customer services and warehouse facilities. “USAI is at the cutting edge of LED technology development,” said USAI President Bonnie Littman Gatof. “We are grateful for the economic development support of Central Hudson that allowed us to stay at our location in New Windsor, continuing to grow and employ local residents.” “Hudson Valley Lighting is committed to remaining in the Hudson Valley,” said David Littman, company chairman. “When poised with opportunities to relocate, Central Hudson, along with others, demonstrated a commitment to retention of existing businesses.”

Pace University President Stephen J. Friedman was selected by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) as the 2016 recipient of the CASE District II Chief Executive Leadership Award for outstanding efforts in promoting the understanding and support of education. “I am deeply honored to receive this important award as Pace is in the midst of an extraordinary period of renewal and growth,” Friedman said. “The results of our efforts in development, in academic renewal, in enrollment, in finance and across the university have been dramatic. Leading those efforts has been for me the most challenging and gratifying experience of my life.” Nominees are required to demonstrate the ability to create vision and inspire others, establish a positive image of his or her institu-

New residence halls, an expanded student center, a new performing arts building, renovated science labs and new clinical

education labs for the health professions are some of the most visible changes to result from Friedman’s vision. In addition, enrollment has grown dramatically and continues on an upward trend with this year’s incoming class of undergraduate and international students being the biggest it has been in 15 years. Internship and job placement rates have also increased under Friedman, who has helped Pace build one of the largest internship-placement programs in the New York metropolitan area.

ACCESS PHYSICAL MARKS OPENING The St. Anthony Community Hospital Center for Physical Rehabilitation in Warwick’s ShopRite Plaza is now being managed by Access Physical Therapy & Wellness, an Orange County-based provider of physical, occupational and other

therapy services. Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton and Michael Johndrow, executive director of the Warwick Valley Chamber, recently joined Access owners, executives and members of Bon Secours Charity

Health System Outpatient Facilities for a ribbon cutting at the renovated facility. Established with a single physical therapy clinic in Montgomery in 2003, Access now provides therapy in more than 20 locations in three states.

MULTIPLE AWARDS FOR FIRSTLIGHT HOMECARE FirstLight HomeCare of Westchester has won three 2016 Best of Home Care awards from Home Care Pulse, including Leader of Excellence. The only provider in the state of New York to receive the Leader of Excellence award, the agency was also named Provider of Choice and Employer of Choice for the third consecutive year. Awards are granted to businesses offering excellent in-home companion care and personal care services, based on feedback from

clients and caregivers. “I am incredibly proud and thankful to our entire team of dedicated caregivers and support staff who, through their commitment and compassion, have earned this honor,” said Vincent McMahon, owner of FirstLight HomeCare of Westchester. “Their hard work is the reason we can celebrate.” FirstLight HomeCare provides in-home companion and personal care services for seniors, those recovering from surgery, adults with

disabilities and other adults in need of assistance.   “A big congratulations to Vincent.  He has been an outstanding leader in our organization by maintaining the highest standards for his clients and employees,” said Jeff Bevis, FirstLight HomeCare CEO. “It is quite the honor to receive all three awards in the Westchester community, and we look forward to continuing to cultivate a true culture of care there and throughout the rest of the country.” 

FIRST ROBOTIC-ASSISTED KNEE SURGERY IN REGION The first robotic-assisted total knee replacement operation to be performed in the lower Hudson Valley took place recently at Phelps Memorial Hospital Center in Sleepy Hollow. The two surgeries were performed by orthopedic surgeon Jason Hochfelder, who joined the Phelps medical staff in 2015. The robotic system, called OMNIbotics, enables the surgeon to plan a customized “virtual” operation on a computer prior to actually

performing the operation. The OMNIbotics device creates a computerized 3-D model of the thighbone and the shinbone so the surgeon can see what the implants will look like before cutting those two bones. Based on the model, the robot places the cutting guide for the saw in the exact correct location. “In typical total knee replacement surgery, much of the calculation of lining up the cuts is done by feel,” says Hochfelder. If

calculations are not perfect, an unbalanced replacement may result. Using the robot guarantees accuracy of the size and positioning of the implants and helps achieve the most important part of the knee replacement – making sure it has full extension, full ability to bend and equal tightness on both sides of the knee.    “Both surgeries using the robotic device were successful,” said Hochfelder.

WINERY LAUNCHES APPLE VODKA Applewood Winery owners Michele and Jonathan Hull were joined by Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton and members of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce board of directors to celebrate the introduction of Applewood Vodka, an elite in a new line of spirits. The vodka is 100 percent distilled from New York state apples. Applewood Vodka is not a flavored vodka.

“It rests on the palate,” said Michele Hull, “with a subtle, apple taste as it is made from but not infused with the fruit. The sensory experience is accompanied by hints of caramel and vanilla. For the most sophisticated and discriminating taste, this refined beverage is as elegant and cultured as the breath-taking vistas that surround our winery.” Originally a vineyard, Apple-

wood, one of the oldest working farms in the Hudson Valley, reached new success when Jonathan Hull pioneered the making of hard cider with Applewood’s Stonefence. The hard cider, which is produced from apples grown on site, was rebranded recently to the multivariety and popular Naked Flock Hard Cider. The spirits are available at the winery, 82 Four Corners Road, Warwick.

‘GO RED FOR WOMEN’ EVENT The Bristal Assisted Living at Armonk recently hosted the American Heart Association “Go Red for Women” event for the local region.

Attorneys for Plaintiff 145 Huguenot St., Ste. 210 New Rochelle, NY 10801 p. 914-636-8900 f. 914-636-8901 HELP FOR HOMEOWNERS IN FORECLOSURE NEW YORK STATE LAW REQUIRES THAT WE SEND YOU THIS NOTICE ABOUT THE FORECLOSURE PROCESS. PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY. SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT YOU ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING YOUR HOME. IF YOU FAIL TO RESPOND TO THE SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT IN THIS FORECLOSURE ACTION, YOU MAY LOSE YOUR HOME. PLEASE READ THE SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT CAREFULLY. YOU SHOULD IMMEDIATELY CONTACT AN ATTORNEY OR YOUR LOCAL LEGAL AID OFFICE TO OBTAIN ADVICE ON HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF. SOURCES OF INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE. The State encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. In addition to seeking assistance from an attorney or legal aid office, there are government agencies and non-profit organizations that you may contact for information about possible options, including trying to work with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Banking Department of Financial Services at 1-800-342-3736 or visit the Department’s website at www.dfs.ny.gov. FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to “save” your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. #60442

Connecticut Needs Job Security, Not a New Payroll Tax By Pete Gioia

for government workers) is just plain awful.

A

t some point, nearly everyone will need to take time away from work to deal with a serious personal or family illness, or to care for a new child—which is why 54% of Connecticut businesses have added more flexibility to their leave policies in the last five years, according to a recent study of state businesses.

We are substantially behind historical norms in job growth and even further behind in income growth.

Yet for a second straight year, mandatory paid family and medical leave supporters are proposing that all workers in Connecticut companies with two or more employees should have this benefit.

However, the vast majority of the world pays considerably lower wages than the U.S. And in places like Europe and Australia, where minimum wages are higher, that money is confiscated through considerably higher taxes. After taxes, many European countries pay less than the U.S. does.

While this and other proposals for governmentcontrolled business practices sound nice, there’s a hitch. Someone has to pay— and that someone is Connecticut’s workforce, who will see their paychecks chipped away with a new payroll tax to fund this program. How much will workers’ paychecks be taxed?

Some of the arguments in favor of mandatory paid family and medical leave maintain that we’re the only industrialized country in the world without it.

“Now is not the time to hit workers with a new tax on their income.”

According to a recent story in the Hartford Courant, “advocates do not know.” Advocates in the state of Washington didn’t know either when they floated an identical program. The proposal was abandoned after it was projected to cost $235 million per biennium. The best thing the legislature can do for Connecticut families is to stabilize their job security. Now is not the time to hit workers with a new tax on their income. Our economy is finally starting to hit its stride after eight painful years of recession and subpar growth, and pay increases always lag behind the job gains. Over the last eight years, compensation (except

The legislature needs to do everything they can to make it easier to grow and keep jobs. Connecticut’s workforce and their families are paying close attention to what’s happening at the Capitol and the decisions being made by their legislators. Eroding their paychecks is the wrong way to provide job security.

Maybe I’m old-fashioned, but with more Connecticut companies providing greater flexibility to their employees, I think Connecticut’s workers can spend their own income more effectively than our government will. Let your employees know about this pending tax increase and tell your legislators to defeat these proposals. Pete Gioia is an economist with CBIA. Follow him on Twitter @CTEconomist.
