This Month's Winners & Losers



Winners

Tim Williamson. The Larchmont resident is one of 250 finalists—out of 75,000 applicants—to be hired as Charlie Sheen’s intern(!).

Lyn McKay. Chappaqua’s deputy superintendent for curriculum and instruction was chosen by the school board to become the district’s new superintendent, besting a myriad of candidates from nine states.

Frank Doherty and Yingli Wen. The Yorktown Heights and Scarsdale residents, respectively, and researchers for Con Edison were two of the three recipients of the Technology Transfer Award from the Electric Power Research Institute, a prestigious industry honor that recognizes a significant safety achievement. The two engineers won for inventing a device that protects utility workers from manholes that have become electrified.

LOSERS

Westchester’s “Smut List” creators. Yet-to-be-identified teens (police are investigating) from several local high schools posted a now-defunct “Smut List” on Facebook, ranking and commenting on classmates and their alleged sexual activities.

Lisa Bruno. The Connecticut woman admitted to bilking the county health department out of nearly a million dollars by sending unlicensed therapists to service (and overbilling the department for) patients it had contracted her Bedford Hills-based home health company to treat.

The Town of Mamaroneck. The EPA issued a citation to the town and its two villages for violating the federal Clean Water Act due to unacceptably high levels of bacteria found at multiple locations throughout its waterways.

Adam Bradley. The disgraced former mayor of White Plains added traffic violations to his growing list of legal troubles, after reportedly being pulled over and ticketed by White Plains police for an illegal turn and an improper child restraint in his back seat.
