Brewster HamletHub has been recognized, along with other Village businesses for their work in keeping Village and Town residents informed and safe during the Coronavirus pandemic.

As businesses are slowly starting to be able to open their doors again, the Village of Brewster extended a thank you to all of the businesses who were considered essential and stayed open or were asked to stay open during this time.

In June, the Village of Brewster Board of Trustees asked the public to nominate businesses in the Village who have supported the community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. These businesses may have donated food to those in need or were complying with social distancing rules and staying open to serve the public and/or keeping them well informed.

Brewster HamletHub and it's Editors were considered and recognized as a vital and essential part of the community for keeping Village residents informed throughout the emergency.

The Village of Brewster honored these businesses at their July 15th Board of Trustee meeting with proclamations. Due to Social Distancing guidelines a large ceremony was not possible but Village representatives held small gatherings on the sidewalk in Front of Village Hall on Main Street and even went to some establishments to deliver the proclamations such as the Brewster Public Library who they cited as an instrumental service for their patrons and residents. Hamlet Hub was recognized on Monday August 24th by Trustees Mary Bryde and George Gaspar along with Village Clerk Michelle Chiudina for their work at Village Hall.

The following businesses were recognized at the July 15, 2020 Board of Trustees Meeting:

Brewster Hamlethub

Brewster Public Library

Moonlight Cafe

Kobacker's Market

Country Kitchen

Pizza Place

Bob's Diner

The Brewster Shipping Center

Westchester SPCA Matching Gift Opportunity https://news.hamlethub.com/harrison/charities/4790-westchester-spca-matching-gift-opportunity4790-westchester-spca-matching-gift-opportunity https://news.hamlethub.com/harrison/charities/4790-westchester-spca-matching-gift-opportunity4790-westchester-spca-matching-gift-opportunity

The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of Westchester is looking for help. Thanks to their wonderful friends at Sidewalk Angels, founded by Grammy-winning artist Rob Thomas, all donations made now through September 30th will be matched up to $20,000! But wait, there's more!

Inspired by Sidewalk Angels, our generous friend Kate, in memory of her father William E. Griffin, is matching gifts for another $10,000!

That brings our TOTAL MATCH up of $30,000!

Animals like Nova, will be one of the lucky recipients of your generous gift. This sweet, happy go lucky girl was playing in her owner's yard when she made an innocent mistake that almost cost her her life. No one was willing to speak up on behalf of Nova and admit to what had unfolded, but the aftermath was clear-someone shot her, twice, at close range after she crossed over onto the neighbor's property.

Shortly after arriving at the emergency vet, one of the SPCA's rescue partners reached out and asked us if Nova survives, would the SPCA take her in. Of course our answer was, yes! She has a long road ahead but has such an amazing disposition despite all that she's been through.

Nova and others like her depend on us every day which is only made possible through gifts from animal lovers like you.

Your kind support will also help animals like Millie, who was rushed into the SPCA for urgent care after being found alone outside, crying in distress and extremely dehydrated.

Upon arrival Millie was immediately given iv fluids and the SPCA veterinary team worked diligently to get her body temperature down, as she was extremely overheated and very lethargic. Within a few hours she started to gain strength and perk up, which allowed the staff to breathe a sigh of relief.

However, our relief was short lived. It quickly became apparent something else was wrong. Millie's poor little body was trembling and her head was shaking, periodically. We believe she was born with a neurological disorder. She is not in any pain but will require further tests. Millie never would have made it if she'd been left to fend for herself outside in this condition.

Your gift will help animals like Nova and Millie who depend on us for survival and will help twice as many dogs and cats now through September 30th. A donation at any level will get us one step closer to reaching our Matching Gift goal for the SPCA animals!

The Osborn, a private, non-profit continuum of care community, announced that VP of Sales Christa Picciano-Daniello has been appointed vice president of LeadingAge New York’s Retirement Housing Cabinet.

“LeadingAge New York is the major advocacy group for aging services and provides such important support and resources,” said Ms. Picciano-Daniello. “I’m very proud to be vice president of the cabinet of this organization and help them address critical current issues as well as the clearly evolving needs and focus of our industry.”

According to Matthew Anderson, President and CEO of The Osborn, “We are delighted Christa has been selected for this leadership role. She cares deeply about seniors and never wavers from her desire to help them find the most suitable living options. Her dedication and knowledge will greatly enhance LeadingAge’s mission of expanding the world of possibilities for aging during this unprecedented time.”

With 28 years of experience in the senior living sector, Ms. Picciano-Daniello joined The Osborn in 1998. She currently serves as VP of sales for the community, which has an illustrious 100+ year history of providing senior living on its picturesque 56-acre campus in Rye.

Founded in 1961, LeadingAge New York represents not-for-profit, mission-driven and public continuing care providers, including nursing homes, senior housing, adult care facilities, continuing care retirement communities, assisted living, and community service providers. The organization’s more than 600 members employ 150,000 professionals serving more than 500,000 New Yorkers annually. Ms. Picciano-Daniello has been a speaker for LeadingAge national conferences and participated in many local panels. The Retirement Housing Cabinet, on which she now serves as vice president, plans programming and public policy agendas for members.

What motivates Christa Picciano-Daniello’s long career in the senior living industry is her empathy and passion for helping people. “I find the senior population fascinating and their stories inspiring, and I strive to be both supportive and informative,” she said. “For me and The Osborn staff, it is about listening, caring, and providing guidance to improve overall quality of life.”

Christa Picciano-Daniello also serves on the Board of Directors for The Hudson Valley Alzheimer’s Association and as a board member for the Westchester Private and Public Partnership. She lives in Northern Westchester with her husband David, her daughter Dakota who is a student at The Masters School, and her son Skyler who attends and plays baseball for SUNY Oneonta.

Cuomo: NY wil set up Covid-19 test sites at NYC area airports https://news.hamlethub.com/harrison/places/4788-cuomo-ny-wil-set-up-covid-19-test-sites-at-nyc-area-airports4788-cuomo-ny-wil-set-up-covid-19-test-sites-at-nyc-area-airports https://news.hamlethub.com/harrison/places/4788-cuomo-ny-wil-set-up-covid-19-test-sites-at-nyc-area-airports4788-cuomo-ny-wil-set-up-covid-19-test-sites-at-nyc-area-airports

Governor Andrew Cuomo, in a press conference on Long Island Monday, said that NY State will set up Covid-19 testing sites at both John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia Airport in NYC.  

“We’re actually setting up testing sites at our airports. We’ll be able to do faster testing of people coming in, including hospital staff," Cuomo said.

Cuomo said the coronavirus testing sites at JFK and LaGuardia will be set up by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and New York City Health + Hospitals and also operates the City’s Clinics and Public Hospitals.

After being hard hit at he beginning of the pandemic NY has lowered its daily infection rate to  amongst the lowest in the nation. The state has also implemented a mandatory 14 day isolation on travelers from states with high infections rate. 

Travelers who do not comply with the state’s order requiring travelers to file a contact tracing form upon arrival in NY could face a fine.

Both New York City and NY State have been cracking down on travel from these high risk states for weeks, asking airlines to hand out the forms, mandating hotels have their guests fill them out, and setting up checkpoints at bridge and tunnel crossings in NYC.

The Port Authority of NY & NJ, who own and operate the area's three biggest airports (Newark in NJ along with JFK and LaGuardia) have been working with local and state officials regarding the testing sites but Cuomo did not give specific details as to when the sites would ready to operate.

Burke Rehabilitation Hospital’s Chief Nursing Officer and Vice President of Nursing Valerie Vermiglio-Kohn was named a “Notable in Health Care” by Crain’s New York Business. This award honors the professional, civic and philanthropic achievements of professionals in the health field who have impacted New York City and the surrounding area in major ways. This year, in particular, the report features leaders who helped bend the region’s steep COVID-19 infection curve and recognizes the innovation in healthcare that both predated the crisis and arose from it. 

“I am honored to join my colleagues with this recognition, which reflects our dedication to our patients, staff and institutions,” said Vermiglio-Kohn. “This award is particularly meaningful this year, when we have met the challenge of navigating a public health crisis while remaining patient-focused.”

Valerie Vermiglio-Kohn, RN, MSN, CRRN, has served as chief nursing officer and vice president of nursing at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital since January 2019. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she has worked tirelessly to ensure staff well-being and safety, while continuing to provide the highest quality of care to all Burke patients.

“We are very proud to have our chief nursing officer receive this prestigious recognition,” Burke President and CEO Jeffrey Menkes said. “Valerie is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about improving patient care through evidence-based practice. She is an outstanding clinical leader who communicates a clear vision for patient and staff safety and quality, inspiring all of us at Burke.”

As the pandemic hit New York, Vermiglio-Kohn played a key role in establishing Burke’s surge bed capacity through thoughtful strategic planning, staff wellness management and collaboration with the medical, IT and building operation departments. Her work was instrumental in Burke’s ability to meet the needs of the community by continuing to care for traditional rehabilitation patients while also providing life-changing care for COVID-19 survivors.

Media Productions Resume in Westchester https://news.hamlethub.com/harrison/events/4785-media-productions-resume-in-westchester4785-media-productions-resume-in-westchester https://news.hamlethub.com/harrison/events/4785-media-productions-resume-in-westchester4785-media-productions-resume-in-westchester

As Westchester County starts back up again in Phase Four of the New York Forward Plan for reopening, media production has resumed in the County – long a hot destination for the film and television industries.

County Executive George Latimer noted: “It’s not surprising that production companies want to be back in Westchester County. Our diverse locations and landscapes offer a breath of fresh air and ample space for film, television, and commercial production crews to safely set up and socially distance on set. We are really excited to welcome them back.” 

With a small commercial production just completed in the Village of Mamaroneck, a music video shoot scheduled at Playland later this month, and several other productions considering locations, Westchester is on its way back.

Since Phase Four began on July 7, Westchester County Tourism & Film (WCTF) has fielded several inquiries from location scouts interested in starting new projects.

WCTF Director Natasha Caputo said: “We are eager to help jump-start film production in Westchester. We can help you scout a location, and connect you to local crews and services. What’s more, we are well-versed in the latest state guidelines and health and safety protocols, and we’re ready to help expedite the permitting process.”

Village of Mamaroneck Mayor Tom Murphy said: “Mamaroneck is happy to host this production.  We are glad to see economic activity returning safely, both to the Village and to Westchester County.”

Location manager Les Fincher worked with WCTF and village officials on the recent one-day pharma commercial shoot. With new maximum occupancy guidelines in mind, Fincher secured two, side-by-side homes for filming; one property served as the set location and the other as space for the 37-member production crew, who were fully masked. Separate pop-up tents housed production departments; equipment was frequently cleaned and disinfected; food service was set up in individual portions; and communication between the director, producer, and talent occurred via a remote online platform. Fincher said the film office was instrumental in facilitating production.

Fincher said: “Westchester made it easy for us to get back to set, safely and smartly. We were able to find the locations we needed, obtain permits, and enjoy the cooperation of the town and neighborhood. There were adjustments, but once we started, the creative process was the same. It felt normal. We were happy to back to work.”

A Key Economic Driver

Prior to the shutdown, Westchester was experiencing a film boom. Inquiries from location scouts about Westchester locations were up 28 percent, year to date, over last year, with production days seeing a 40 percent rise. In addition, revenue from film permitting at county-owned properties was up more than 70 percent.

Latimer added: “The film industry is an important economic driver for the County and its local communities, which also benefit from film and television production. This will play an important role in our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Westchester has served as the backdrop for award-winning films and episodic television shows, including “The Irishman” (Netflix); “Fosse/Verdon” (FX); and “Mr. Robot” (Amazon) drama. Other recent productions filmed here include “The Americans” (FX); “Divorce” (HBO); “Law and Order: SVU” (NBC); “Saturday Night Live” (NBC); “The Goldfinch” (Amazon).

Caputo added: “Westchester County is a top destination for film production because of the vast array of film-friendly locations we offer within the New York City film zone. We’re within easy reach and we offer hands-on support to make it easy to film here. In these challenging times, we’re here to help troubleshoot, solve problems, and provide assistance in any way we can.”
