This Month's Winners & Losers



Winners

Creative Aging Through the Arts. Celebrating its fifth year, this exhibit (at Greenburgh Town Hall March 27 through May 5) showcases the artwork of more than 100 county seniors—proving that creativity and imagination don’t dry up at 55.

 The Westchester Arts Council, rechristened as Arts Westchester (artswestchester.org), the largest non-profit arts council in New York. The organization decided to re-brand itself after 44 years to better reflect its evolved scope and mission beyond simply writing checks.

 Jenni Barber. The Bronxville resident has been cast (as Lisa) in PBS’s remake of its classic kids’ learn-how-to-read series, The Electric Company.

 Mount Vernon. Of the four Westchester cities that collect their own sales taxes, it’s the only one whose collections didn’t drop over the last quarter.

Losers

 Arron Rodriguez. The Sleepy Hollow Volunteer Ambulance Corps member was arrested for DWI after crashing into a tree—with one of the town’s EMS vehicles.

 Michael Marzano, Eric Pacicca, Jeffrey Polono, and Joseph Quinones. The White Plains teens were arrested for robbery after one of them crank-called the man they’d robbed and beaten. (Hello? Ever hear of Caller ID?)

 Jeanine Pirro. Her court-TV show (Judge Jeanine Pirro) has been sentenced to syndication after being dropped by The CW network—with no chance for appeal.

 Timothy F. Geithner. The Mamaroneck resident and new Treasury Secretary—who oversees the IRS—failed to pay his own income taxes (to the tune of $34,000) from 2001 to 2004. (Oops!)
