This Month's Winners & Losers



Winners

Dr. Stephen Trauzzi. The Scarsdale physician has been elected president of the medical board of Sound Shore Medical Center.

Yorktown teens. The Yorktown Teen Center is getting a complete renovation this month, culminating with the kick-off of an arts festival to coincide with its May 2 reopening.

New Haven Line Metro-North commuters. The MTA has (finally!) brought the first of its new M-8 trains into use on the line. In addition to providing larger windows, more comfortable seating, and handicapped-accessible bathrooms, the new trains also are capable of being powered by third rail in addition to the overhead catenary wires.

LOSERS

Florence D’Imperio. The 90-year-old Harrison resident and head of its Meals on Wheels program—once lauded as its “Citizen of the Year”—was arrested along with five other town employees for allegedly stealing from Harrison’s food pantry for the poor.

Margo Reed. The Yonkers resident was charged with one count of grand larceny for stealing more than $163,000 in overdue book fines during her work at the Yonkers Public Library.

Sister Marie Thornton. The disgraced nun—and former VP of finance for Iona College in New Rochelle—pled guilty (at the start of Lent, of all days!) for stealing more than $850,000 from the school over a ten-year period.
