Ryebrook's HamletHub https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook Tue, 18 Sep 2018 22:59:28 -0400 HamletHub.com First Meeting of the Westchester School Safety Commission https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/publicsafety/4925-first-meeting-of-the-westchester-school-safety-commission4925-first-meeting-of-the-westchester-school-safety-commission https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/publicsafety/4925-first-meeting-of-the-westchester-school-safety-commission4925-first-meeting-of-the-westchester-school-safety-commission

Sept. 18, 2018 -- With the school year underway, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. kicked off the first meeting of the Westchester County School Safety Commission (WSSC). In attendance were Deputy County Executive Ken Jenkins and leaders representing schools, students, educators, mental health experts and law enforcement throughout Westchester County. The Commission has been formed in collaboration with County Executive George Latimer. 

The mission of the WSSC is to implement best practices in safety evaluation and procedures in schools of all levels throughout Westchester County to keep our students safe in the event of a credible threat or violent incident.  A primary focus is to increase and enhance communication and cooperation between schools and local law enforcement, and issue guidelines for countywide protocols.

In his opening remarks, DA Scarpino said: “This is what keeps me up at night--What happens when someone bent on violence enters one of our schools?” And in light of that, he told the commission what he would like it to accomplish: “The State already mandates that each public school and BOCES file annual updated building-level Emergency Response Plans. Part of our agenda is to explore how those individual plans can be incorporated into countywide responsiveness. And that ties in with the greater mission of this Commission: to create a program of consistent protocols in response to threats or emergencies in any building, on any campus-public or private; and appropriate training and understanding for all stakeholders including students, parents and community members.”

DA Scarpino also renewed his call for the State Legislature to pass the Extreme Risk Protection Order bill, or so-called Red Flag Law, that empowers community members to report concerns about people in crisis, and give law enforcement and the legal system a way to temporarily take weapons out the hands of someone who may harm themselves or others.

Special Presentations
As part of the kickoff, several attendees gave presentations on key area of concerns:

  • “Active Shooter” presentation by Joe Tadrick, Protective Security Advisor, US Dept. of Homeland Security, Office of Infrastructure Protection.
  • School Resource Officers training presentation (SRO) by Sergeant Amery Bernhardt of the Westchester County Department of Public Safety
  • Mental Health training and services presentation by Commissioner Michael Orth, Westchester County Department of Public Health.
  • Presentation on student health and education privacy laws (FERPA/HIPAA) by Attorney Adrienne Arkontaky, V.P./Managing Attorney at Cuddy Law Firm, White Plains

Next Steps
The members of WSSC are assigned to committees to work on specific research and reporting. The two committees are “Crisis Management” and “Threat Prevention and Intervention.” They will collaborate on how to evaluate and secure buildings in advance of and during an incident; how to communicate with law enforcement, other facilities, families and students before, during and after an incident; learn awareness about the red flags that a person in crisis may be exhibiting; and train teachers, staff and volunteers in these best practices. Dates for future meetings are pending. The WSSC expects to release a report by the end of the 2018-2019 school year.

County Executive Latimer said of the Commission:  “As Westchester school children head back for the beginning of the year, County officials are continually working to ensure the safety of all of our schools. This Commission, a joint effort between my Administration and DA Scarpino, is tasked with finding solutions which meet the needs of all parties involved by both keeping our children safe while also making sure schools are places where our kids feel at ease and can focus on learning. That is why these efforts and those undertaken by our County Police, including constantly working to be prepared through communication and training for any type of horrific incident, are so important. I look forward to many positive meetings like the one we held today.”

Scarpino reminded the gathering that the School Safety Commission supports the District Attorney’s mission to create a safer community. “By bringing together a group of stakeholders with the knowledge, expertise and communications skills to develop protocols focused on keeping our schools safe places for teaching and learning, we will be better positioned to respond to and take a more proactive approach to possible threats in the future.”

September 29 is a Sensory Friendly Morning at The Maritime https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/neighbors/4924-september-29-is-a-sensory-friendly-morning-at-the-maritime4924-september-29-is-a-sensory-friendly-morning-at-the-maritime https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/neighbors/4924-september-29-is-a-sensory-friendly-morning-at-the-maritime4924-september-29-is-a-sensory-friendly-morning-at-the-maritime

For some, The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk is a place with too many stimuli. So on Sat., Sept. 29, the Aquarium is planning a special morning to give guests with sensory-processing differences a fun, comfortable and accepting environment.

During the “Sensory-Friendly Morning,” lights in the Aquarium will be lower, and music and other sounds will be turned down or off.

Additionally, with the Aquarium opening on Sept. 29 at 8 a.m., two hours earlier than usual, special-needs guests averse to crowds will be less likely to encounter them.

In The Maritime Aquarium’s IMAX® Theater, the movies “Pandas” at 9 a.m. and “Backyard Wilderness” at 10 a.m. will be shown with the volume lowered and the theater lights dimmed less than usual. (An IMAX movie is included with Aquarium admission.)

Also on Sept. 29, a special low-volume seal-training demonstration is planned for 8:30 a.m.  And the regular 11:45 a.m. seal-training demonstration will be delayed until noon.

A “quiet room” will be available for guests that need a place to calm. For families that need to leave within the first 30 minutes of arrival, passes will be available to come back and try again another day.

The Maritime Aquarium’s “Sensory-Friendly Mornings” are offered several times a year, after being designed with input from staff members with special-needs children and siblings, and from Easter Seals of Coastal Fairfield County. Training of Aquarium staff and volunteers was conducted by Cooperative Educational Services in Trumbull (CES).

Normal admission prices apply on “Sensory-Friendly Morning”:  $24.95 for adults; $22.95 for youths (13-17) & seniors (65+); and $17.95 for ages 3-12. Children under 3 are free.

For more details about the popular Connecticut family attraction’s exhibits, IMAX movies and programs this fall, call (203) 852-0700 or go to www.maritimeaquarium.org.

From the SPACE Kitchen

"Eating is deeply personal and emotional, and rooted in your upbringing."

This is Chef Min Liao's first season as a Resident Chef with SPACE. She has cooked for both of SPACE's Family Residencies and we've never seen happier kids! Read an interview with her on our blog.

No Noodle Zucchini Lasagna

A gluten-free Italian delight!

  • 2 large Ryder Farm zucchini
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 cup tomato paste
  • 16oz canned tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp. fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp. fresh oregano
  • 1 egg
  • 15 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 1 bunch of Ryder Farm kale
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 8 ounces grated parmesan

Serves 6-8 people. Grease a 9x13 baking dish. Slice zucchini lengthwise into long strips.  Place in a colander and cover generously with salt.  Allow to sit for 15-20 minutes so the juice can drain. Saute onion and bell pepper on stove.  Once they have softened, stir in tomato paste and tomato sauce.  Add basil and oregano. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer.  Combine egg and ricotta in a bowl. Steam kale. Spread ½ the tomato sauce on the bottom of the baking dish, layer ½ zucchini on top (like you would lasagna noodles), ½ ricotta, all of the kale, ½ mozzarella, the remaining tomato sauce, remaining zucchini slices (or however many it takes to create another full layer-you’ll probably have some slices leftover), remaining ricotta, and remaining mozzarella.  Sprinkle with parmesan. Cover with foil and bake 45 minutes.  Uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes.

Jacob Burns Film Center to Honor Broadway Producer Dori Berinstein and Robert Goldberg at Annual Gala https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/events/4918-jacob-burns-film-center-to-honor-broadway-producer-dori-berinstein-and-robert-goldberg-at-annual-gala4918-jacob-burns-film-center-to-honor-broadway-producer-dori-berinstein-and-robert-goldberg-at-annual-gala https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/events/4918-jacob-burns-film-center-to-honor-broadway-producer-dori-berinstein-and-robert-goldberg-at-annual-gala4918-jacob-burns-film-center-to-honor-broadway-producer-dori-berinstein-and-robert-goldberg-at-annual-gala

Celebrating the Imagination Builders; Jacob Burns Film Center to Honor Broadway Producer Dori Berinstein and Robert Goldberg, President of Yorke Construction at Annual Gala on Monday, September 17th

The Jacob Burns Film Center (JBFC), a nonprofit cultural arts center and one of the most successful suburban film houses in the country, will celebrate its meaningful connection to Broadway by honoring two visionaries of the theater community at its gala, BUILDING IMAGINATION, on Monday, September 17th.

Tony-Winning Producer and Emmy-Award-Winning Director Dori Berinstein will receive the Vision Award and Robert Goldberg, a JBFC Board Member and President of Yorke Construction, will receive the first ever David Swope Leadership Award, named after JBFC’s founding board member and chairman emeritus. Honorary Co-Chairs include Stage and Screen Actor Alan Cumming, Director and JBFC Board Member Ron Howard and Legendary Performer Bette Midler. Previous gala honorees include: Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Jonathan Demme, and Julie Taymor.

Ms. Berinstein has been a long-time JBFC fan, friend, and supporter. She is the curator and moderator of JBFC’s ongoing series Life on the Stage (in partnership with the Actors Fund), recently hosting a Q & A with the creative team behind The Band’s Visit, winner of 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Recently, on August 21 was a showing of the original 1933 classic King Kong followed by a conversation with the creative team behind Kong’s fascinating transition from screen to technical marvel on stage. 

Dori has been an instrumental part of extending Broadway’s reach beyond the Great White Way through her documentary films and The Lights on Broadway Show Cards.  That exposure also includes a special treat at this year’s gala in previewing select numbers from her new Broadway Musical The Prom, which opens in October. The musical tells the story of a lesbian high school student from a small town in Indiana, who is not allowed to bring her girlfriend to the senior prom. Dori’s other Broadway productions include Legally Blonde: The Musical (Olivier Award), Thoroughly Modern Millie (Tony Award) and Fool Moon (Tony Award).

Robert (Bob) Goldberg, JBFC Board Member and President of Yorke Construction, builds artistic vision. Yorke’s legacy of serving the larger arts community can be felt around the region through their work with iconic and diverse cultural institutions such as Lincoln Center Theater, Stages for Success, New Victory Theater, and St. Ann’s Warehouse.  Bob literally brought JBFC’s campus to life as Yorke built the five-screen Theater complex and 27,000 foot Media Arts Lab. A champion of the JBFC, Bob is particularly dedicated to Creative Culture, a fellowship and residency program that fosters diverse voices and a thriving artistic community from the region, across the country, and around the world. 

 

“Dori and Bob share our commitment to building imagination,” said JBFC Executive Director, Edie Demas. “We are proud and honored to recognize Dori and Bob for their creativity, and artistic vision, as well as their unwavering dedication to our film, media education, and fellowship programs.”

All proceeds from Building Imagination fuels JBFC’s mission to present unique programs such as Life on the Stage, teach students new ways to tell their stories, prepare educators to integrate viewing and creating media in their classroom culture, and empower emerging artists.

JBFC also recently announced its line-up of fall programming that includes an exciting slate of events such as the reintroduction of Jonathan Demme’s Rarely Seen Cinema: Jenny Lumet Selects, The Best of the 2018 NY International Children’s Film Festival, Contemporary Arab Cinema and much more.

Clay Art Center’s Hand-in-Hand Annual Fall Benefit at Willow Ridge Country Club in Harrison https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/charities/4914-clay-art-center-s-hand-in-hand-annual-fall-benefit-at-willow-ridge-country-club-in-harrison4914-clay-art-center-s-hand-in-hand-annual-fall-benefit-at-willow-ridge-country-club-in-harrison https://news.hamlethub.com/ryebrook/charities/4914-clay-art-center-s-hand-in-hand-annual-fall-benefit-at-willow-ridge-country-club-in-harrison4914-clay-art-center-s-hand-in-hand-annual-fall-benefit-at-willow-ridge-country-club-in-harrison

The Clay Art Center Board of Directors is thrilled to host their 11th Hand-in-Hand annual fall benefit. The gala fundraiser will be held on Thursday, October 18, 2018, 6-10PM at Willow Ridge Country Club, 123 North Street, Harrison, NY. 

The evening will feature tastings from local restaurants; signature cocktails; live music and dancing and other festivities; as well as a silent and live auction, featuring one-of-kind ceramic artwork from nationally recognized artists and many other unique items. Join in the festivities with celebrity auctioneer, Westchester County Executive George Latimer. Proceeds benefit Clay Art Center’s programs, youth scholarships and Artists-in-Residence.

This annual fall benefit attracts a lively and loyal audience of over 200 individuals. As one of our guests said last year – “As always, a fabulous night with great friends that feel like family!” 

In previous years, this fundraiser has boosted funding to our youth scholarship program, along with the Artist Residency programs. As a direct result of last year’s benefit and other programs, Clay Art Center was able to award more than one thousand scholarships to underserved and at-risk youths and adults. These scholarship recipients were given the opportunity to express themselves creatively and experience the transformational qualities of clay. Additionally, the funds supported year-long residencies for two young emerging artists, which culminated in an exhibition in Clay Art Center’s nationally recognized gallery.

At this year’s annual benefit, we are thrilled to celebrate the 20th year of our Residency program and honor two exceptional honorees who have made meaningful impacts on Clay Art Center’s growth and reach. The Residency program is uniquely designed for emerging artists who need time and space to develop their voices and has been a springboard for 40 individual artists over the years. Residents gain invaluable experience working in a community environment, teaching classes, sharing their technical knowledge and expertise, and managing many jobs around the studio. 

Arial Edwards was our Community Arts Director from 2008 to 2016, and during her time expanded our outreach programs exponentially, mobilizing a group of incredibly passionate teaching artists, volunteers, and community partners to bring arts education to thousands of individuals. Carver Center has been one of our most enthusiastic community partners over the past decade, dedicated to building brighter futures by serving, educating and empowering families and our partner in bringing arts enrichment to hundreds of Port Chester youths and families.

The annual fall benefit allows supporters of Clay Art Center to celebrate together and help support our goal of providing access to more individuals from our community with the opportunity to improve their lives by learning to express themselves through meaningful art making. Patrons from the tri-state area will enjoy live music, wine, and tempting cuisine from numerous area restaurants including Acuario, Alba’s, Andrea’s 25 North, Coals, Edo, Famous Greek Kitchen, Fogama, Frankie & Johnnie’s, Jewel of the Himalaya, Kishuya, Lombardos, North Street Tavern, Rela Café, Rye Roadhouse, Salsa Picante, Shiraz Kitchen, Saigonese, Spadaro Ristorante, Spice Kitchen, T&J Pizza and Pasta, and Tandoori. The evening will also include beer provided by Captain Lawrence Brewing Company, signature cocktails, and baked goods from Kneaded Bread, Lulu Patisserie, and White Plains Bake Shoppe.

Tickets and more information about the event can be found on our website at https://www.clayartcenter.org/events-benefits.

Clay Art Center was founded in 1957 by Katherine Choy and Henry Okamoto. Unknown to them at the time, Clay Art Center would grow into an 11,000 square foot non-profit art center that delivers programming for professional artists, students, collectors, and the Port Chester community at large. 

Clay Art Center is a nationally recognized non-profit center for the advancement and practice of ceramic arts offering exhibitions, clay classes for adults and children, studio spaces for clay artists and outreach programs in the community.  It is located in the heart of Port Chester at 40 Beech Street, Port Chester, NY 10573. Gallery and SHOP hours are Monday - Saturday, 10am-5pm or by appointment.

Every day kids can explore more than 100 friendly larger-than-life scarecrows set among nearly 1,000 rare and unusual pumpkins and gourds; pot up a spooky black coleus to take home; put on your own haunting show with insect, bat, owl, and scarecrow puppets; and investigate a mysterious Victorian playhouse to learn all about bats. Weekends bring even more fall fun with pumpkin carving demonstrations by some of NYC’s best artists and interactive demonstrations featuring creepy creatures like giant bats and reptiles.

CORNucopia, a sweet summer event, returns to Philipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow this Labor Day weekend. Celebrate a season of bounty with crafts, live music, and tasty treats, Saturday through Monday, Sept. 1-3, from 10am-5pm each day. The event is produced by Historic Hudson Valley, the non-profit education organization that owns and operates Philipsburg Manor.
 
Kids can get hands-on with activities like crafting cornhusk brooms, making their own apple dolls and designing scarecrows. They can race to the finish in the child-sized “mini maize maze” and corn-shucking contest. Plus, they can test their skills in the free-play area with a variety of corn-themed games.
 
Live music from the acclaimed string band The Ebony Hillbillies will get toes tapping throughout the day.  Watch as jugglers perform a-maize-ing feats with ears of corn, work up an appetite during cooking demonstrations, and take a guided farm walk to see every step of the harvesting process from grain to grinding!
 
Food selections available for purchase include fresh roasted corn, veggie corn burgers, corn tortilla casserole, cornbread, corn muffins, kettle corn, and popcorn, plus draft beers and draft root beer from Captain Lawrence Brewery. Blue Pig of Croton-on-Hudson will feature sweet corn ice cream.
 
Online tickets sold in advance are $16 for adults; $12 for seniors; $8 for children 3-17; and free for children under 3 and for Historic Hudson Valley members. Tickets are available online at www.hudsonvalley.org. Tickets are $2 more when purchased on site.
