Outings: Welcome to Wonderland!

Technology: Westchester Moms, Staying Connected
In this age of email, instant messaging, chat rooms and blogs, it’s easy to imagine that human connections are all about typing on a keyboard. Not so for a number of moms in Westchester who are using technology to connect with other moms through a website called Meetups.com. (read the story...)

'Two Mothers. Two Worlds. One Goal.'
Almost every day brings news of another devastating attack in the Middle East. Sadly, we respond with resignation: “There will never be peace there.” (read the story...)

Brooke Shields gets personal:“I thought it would be so easy to become a mom.”
Now Brooke is talking about a similar dark period in her life — the two years before the birth of daughter, Rowan, when she and husband, Chris Henchy, were desperately trying to have a baby; how she lost a child in-between; and how emotionally destroying infertility can be. (read the story...)

The Things About Reiser
Paul Reiser wrote and stars in The Thing About My Folks, a new feature film which opens September 16. But more importantly, he has mined his life to create a rich family portrait that resonates with families everywhere, not just those in the New York Jewish milieu in which he is intimate. (read the story...)

Eye Doctors Open Their Hearts to restore sight around the world
The philosophy of ORBIS is the well-known one: Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime. Only with ORBIS, the fishing boat is a DC-10 aircraft known as the Flying Eye Hospital. ORBIS is a non-profit, humanitarian organization dedicated to preserving and restoring sight in the developing world,. They accomplish this by strengthening the capacity of local partners in their efforts to prevent and treat blindness. (read the story...)

For a Writer, a Novel Service Combo
Elizabeth Kaiden hoped for the ideal work environment before her children were born. The Upper West Sider was a freelance writer and film critic, but found she could not work at home, nor could she commit to the kind of childcare options that freelancers require. Thus, her new career — founding and serving as executive director of Two Rooms, a non-profit facility in her very neighborhood, designed to serve the needs of freelance workers who are parents. (read the story...)

Green Alternatives to Interior Design
It’s not easy being green in Westchester. Just ask Elizabeth Ferber, a mother and passionate environmentalist living in Katonah. She tried to start a food co-op in her neighborhood, but it never got off the ground because of lack of interest. (read the story...)

Hello, Muddah!
Veteran comedian Jill Shely is used to working tough crowds, but today’s audience presents an unusual challenge. As she introduces the ComedySportz team for the premiere performance of “Mom’s Cracking Up!” at the Sol Goldman 14th Street YM-YWHA , she is greeted with a strident buzz of noise and activity. Infants toddle on the padded blue mat stretched in front of the stage. (read the story...)

Drafting our Sons & Daughters:Local pols and parents speak out
Lottery numbers, draft boards, and educational deferments may be little more than dusty relics of the Vietnam era, but if Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) has his way, today’s young people could become familiar with them again when they participate in a military draft. (read the story...)

A City Becomes
Anyone who thinks it’s simple getting a children’s book published would be wise to consider A City Is, which took 13 years from concept to final product, surviving even the death of the author.

In memory of Stewie,A Duck Learns To Swim

Brooklyn’s star school:A Charter School that Begins — and Ends — with Children
There’s been a good deal of controversy surrounding New York City’s charter schools lately. While supporters maintain that charter schools offer a much-needed choice in educational opportunities not otherwise available in the public school system, opponents feel that due to a lack of accountability, these schools run a higher risk of academic inconsistencies and financial disarray. Charter schools are public, tuition-free schools that operate independently of the local districts under a “charter” from either the state Board of Regents, the State University of New York (SUNY), or the school chancellor. (read the story...)

The Sweet Sounds of Success
Back in 1992, when the Brooklyn Youth Chorus Academy (BYCA) began, it had only 48 students who rehearsed in an empty classroom at Brooklyn Friends School. Today, the group has flourished into four different choruses, with over 250 student singers. Last fall, it moved into its own building in Cobble Hill, with almost 6,000 square feet of rehearsal space and practice rooms. Although the chorus is Brooklyn-based, members come from all over the city. What makes them choose this group over another closer to home? (read the story...)

The Music Man
"From the second I started playing, I couldn't put it down," says Tommy Colletti of the guitar he first held at age 12. Now, at 37, Colletti is not only still playing guitar, he has made it his business to put guitars and other musical instruments into the hands of young and old alike. (read the story...)
