Wednesday, 2/13 at 6pm
Riverfront Library
 
 
Author and TV News anchor Mary Calvi's debut novel, DEAR GEORGE, DEAR MARY: A Novel of George Washington’s First Love is based on the author’s fascinating historical detective work, which revealed a complicated love story featuring Yonkers own Mary Philipse and America’s first President.
 
Mary Calvi spent years as a child wondering about the heiress who once lived in the grand manor in her hometown of Yonkers, New York. She’d heard in passing that the heiress was courted by George Washington. Curiosity compelled Calvi to do her own research and what she uncovered stunned her. Never before has this story about George Washington been told.
 
Crafted from hundreds of letters, witness accounts, and journal entries, DEAR GEORGE, DEAR MARY explores George’s relationship with his first love, New York heiress Mary Philipse, the richest belle in Colonial America. Philipse would be named a traitor, one of only three woman condemned to death during the American Revolution. The three “traitors” were also the only women in New York to own property. Mary Philipse’s home, Philipse Manor, is the oldest historic site in Yonkers and all of Westchester County. Did her relationship with Washington lead to her losing her property? Did the unrequited love of a political rival spark a flame that ignited a cause that became the American Revolution?
 
Tickets are free but registration is recommended. Books can be pre-ordered and picked up at the event - before they are available in stores - with a portion of the proceeds supporting The Foundation for the Yonkers Public Library.
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Mary Calvi is a television journalist and First Lady of the City of Yonkers. She is the co-anchor of "CBS2 This Morning" and "CBS2 At Noon" at WCBS-TV in New York City, and the recipient of 9 Emmy Awards.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BREEN, RUBBO AND MERANTE CALL FOR CON EDISON TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE AMID WESTCHESTER GAS MORATORIUM

Yonkers, NY - January 24, 2019 -  Con Edison has announced that all applications submitted after March 2019 will be denied gas service. This is announced on the heels of the City of Yonkers Industrial Development Agency announcing a record level of economic development in the City of Yonkers. “ This will slow down, if not completely stop, the 20 years of economic development we have seen on the Yonkers waterfront,” stated Minority Leader Mike Breen. Breen added, “This is going to also negatively affect young homeowners you want to come and build a future in Yonkers. If you don’t already have gas service, Con Edison is telling these young folks to go punt and build in Putnam, Rockland or elsewhere.”

“This announcement could cause the Ludlow, Chicken Island, Tutonia Hall and Extell projects to stop in their tracks. Nearly 10,000 construction jobs won’t exist. Yonkers will lose tens of millions of dollars in new, recurring revenues; progress will cease,” stated Councilman John Rubbo.  Rubbo continued, “Not only will this affect economic development, but this could potentially affect the building of three new schools in our city. This is unacceptable!”.

Councilman Anthony Merante added, “The NYS public service commission must step in and do something. Con Edison did not find out on Friday that they could not supply future gas service to the people of Westchester County. It was irresponsible on the part of Con Edison to not have announced this 12 months ago. This game of chicken between Con Edison and the Public Service Commission is unacceptable.”

The City Council Minority is calling upon Con Edison and the Public Service Commission to return to the table and not allow new service to be stalled.

 Con Edison has announced a moratorium on new natural gas connections in Westchester County. Public officials fear that the development boom in the county could come to an abrupt halt.

The utility company stated on Jan. 18 that it would no longer accept applications for natural gas connections from new customers in southern Westchester, starting March 15. The company claims it needs the moratorium to ensure it can meet current demand. 

Westchester Eye on the Radio will feature the New York Utility Project on 1/28/2019. The advocacy group educates the public about its legal rights as utility consumers; engages in research and advocacy; and provides legal representation for low-income utility consumers in electric, natural gas, telephone, and other utility related matters.

Richard Berkley, esq, a representative of the Utility Project, will discuss the latest developments and the impact on Westchester developers and consumers.

Perdue Foods, in cooperation with USDA, has voluntarily recalled 68,244 pounds or approximately 49,632 bags of frozen, fully cooked organic gluten free chicken breast nuggets under the PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® Organics brand because of the potential that a small number of packages may contain pieces of wood.

The recall is isolated to only PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® Organics brand Gluten Free chicken breast nuggets. These items were produced in October of 2018 with a "Best If Used By Date" of 10/25/2019 and UPC product bar code of 72745-80656. The package also lists an Establishment number of "P-33944."

There have been no reports of injury associated with this product. “After a thorough investigation, we strongly believe this to be an isolated incident, as only a minimal amount of these packages has the potential to contain pieces of wood.  Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to recall all packages of PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® Organics Gluten Free Chicken Breast Nuggets produced during the same product run,” said Jeff Shaw, Perdue's Vice President for Quality Assurance.

If you have any of these packages in your home, please do not consume the product and contact Perdue Foods at 877-727-3447 for a full refund of your purchase. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. If you have additional concerns, please contact Perdue Foods or visit the USDA website.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, NYC is home to 48 hate groups. Some of those groups operate in Westchester County, NY. 

Westchester Eye on the Radio will host three guests on 1/14/2019 from 3-4pm to discuss the topic. Stu Hackel is a member of the Greenburgh Human Rights Activism Committee. Jodie Reaver is co chair of the Ardsley Multicultural Diversity and Inclusion Committee in Ardsley, NY. Lou Young is a Larchmont resident who will detail his sentiments regarding a controversial lawn sign campaign in Westchester. 

The signs state in bold colors, Hate Has No Home Here. They were originally posted as part of a national project to promote inclusive communities by encouraging neighbors to declare their homes, schools, businesses, and places of worship to be safe places where everyone is welcome and valued.

However, they became a subject of contention when Proud Boys founder, Gavin McInnes voiced his objection to them in Larchmont. https://patch.com/new-york/larchmont/proud-boys-mcinnes-hates-no-hate-signs-hometown

Consolidated Edison is the largest supplier of gas and electricity for NYC and Westchester County.  But Con Ed is a monopoly and has no competitive pressure to distribute power more efficiently or respond to consumer complaints.

For low-income consumers, dealing with utility companies can be  difficult.  Utility customers often need an advocate in their corner and sometimes even legal representation to ensure fair and affordable access to service. That’s where New York’s Utility Project steps in –  making sure consumers are not alone dealing with common problems like getting service, preventing shutoffs, filing complaints, finding energy efficiency programs, and applying for assistance with utility bills.

New York’s Utility Project is an initiative of the Public Utility Law Project of New York, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit organization that has been advocating for universal service, affordability, and customer protection for New York State utility consumers since 1981.

If you have a problem with either a water utility company or Con Edison, you should contact the Utility Project. They will help you file a complaint with the Public Service Commission. 

The Department of Public Service is a New York State agency that provides a variety of services to protect and assist utility customers. They assist consumers in resolving disputes with utilities. They are also the regulatory body for the utility companies. 

 The Utility Project will contact the Public Service Commission for you and provide legal representation for low-income utility consumers in electric, natural gas, telephone, and other utility related matters. They also publish a utility law manual as a guide for advocates on utility and energy law issues, and conduct training on preventing utility terminations and the rights of utility consumers.

The show will broadcast on WVOX 1460AM. Also streamed online at wvox.com.
