Westchester 2012 Year in Review: January
The First Kennedy Kerfuffle
Our Westchester royals just can’t stay out of the news. This time it’s Douglas Kennedy, son of the late RFK, who attempts to take his 2-day-old son from Northern Westchester Hospital’s maternity ward. Nurses intervene; one claims Kennedy twisted her arm, and another says he kicked her and she was allegedly knocked to the floor. Kennedy, 45, a Chappaqua resident, claims he was only protecting his son as he attempted to take him outside for some “fresh air.” He is arrested and charged with child endangerment and physical harassment.
A Final Bow
After nine years at the helm of the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts in Katonah, Michael Barrett announces that he will be stepping down as CEO after the 67th Caramoor International Music Festival this summer.
