With summer approaching, the event calendar is exploding.

There are so many great happenings to check out this month

I am so excited about the Eventful Cook Off on June 2nd. I

Hit the Spot:

By Nicole Gallagher

I am always looking for inspiration when

it comes to my job as a local “foodie.” Sampling

new foods, checking out new places

or looking back to some things I may have

missed in an old location is a great gig for a

food junkie. From fine dining to everyday

family-style eateries, we hit them all.

A few months back I kept reading promotions

all over Facebook from a local

man named Angelo Notaro -- a.k.a. “Big

Ang” -- who had spearheaded the First

Hudson Valley Pizza Fest. The event was

held at Arbor Ridge Catering in Hopewell

Junction, where people from all over came

out in droves to sample and judge local pizza.

I love local food contests for one reason;

real people casting a vote for real places. I

love hearing about the little guys, the momand-pops,

a dining location where people

within the county can actually go to grab a

bite to eat. One category, in particular, caught

my attention; “Best Sauce,” which was awarded

to Gappy’s of Carmel.

For over 10 years, Gappy’s Pizza has been

craved by those living in and about the Carmel-based

hot spot at 1323 Route 52. Gappy’s

is a hopping location, featuring traditional

Italian pizza, which accompanies Italian cuisine.

The key to any successful meal is always

the “secret sauce.” The secret sauce is what

makes the hand-tossed dough and melted

gooey cheese so flavorful. For generations,

pizza has made its mark as the

cost-effective, go-to food that is available

nearly everywhere, can be eaten in hand,

is fun to share with friends and great to

eat cold as leftovers.

So I wanted to know, what other dishes

•restaurants & reviews•

Go-Go Gappy’s Pizza

does Gappy’s serve with this delicious sauce?

So I decided to call a few friends and take a

journey to sample some sauces for myself,

to see what you the people voted for and to

see what Gappy’s had going on with the new-

found title of “Best Sauce” winner. This journey

had me and my best foodie friends ordering

like we were never going to eat again. We

kicked our meal off with the HV Pizza Fest

sauce winning pizza pie and continued on to

many newfound favorites.

The first thing we noticed; the dine-in

menu was affordable, which is always a great

start. Our young waitress offered us suggestions

and we took all of her advice. I love

when the waitstaff backs the food without

hesitation. She claimed the chicken supreme

was the best; chicken served with peperon-

cini’s and red bell pepper in a garlic sherry


We all agreed she was correct and the

sauce was quite tasty. A nightly special that

makes it to the special board is often is always

worth a try, and the Seafood Pasta, a

hefty bowl of mussels, clams, shrimp and

lobster in a red sauce over pasta, was on

the money. To my pleasant surprise, a pizza

place that can make a tasty bowl of fish

equals good times. We got to enjoy a meal

of “real” food while my children enjoyed

their pizza.

Gappy’s offers over two dozen different

kind of pizzas, including gluten-free. We

all agreed with those who voted in the HV

Best Pizza contest, “The Grandma’s pie” was

topped with exquisite sauce. We used the

pizza as an appetizer. Don’t pass over the subs

and rolls. Our table’s favorite was the veggie

roll, which was packed with lightly breaded

eggplant, spinach, broccoli and cheese, and

served with a thick marinara sauce.

About the place: our dining pals, along with

all our kids, completely enjoyed the laid-back

surroundings, and a no-fuss meal experience

perfect for a busy Monday night. We did all

notice that the take-out section was hopping,

which is always available.

In fact, Gappy’s is open seven days a week

(Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m.;

Friday through Saturday, 11 a.m. – 2

a.m.; Sunday noon to 9 p.m.) with both

indoor and outdoor seating, as well as

a bar-type area to enjoy a quick meal

or slice. Alcohol is served on premises.

Weekly specials and catering are available.

BBQ Sauce

By Donna Massaro

It’s hard to put my finger on when BBQ

sauce was discovered. Sauces go back

thousands of years. Many large companies

claim that they had the first BBQ

sauce. From what I could find, in Atlanta,

Ga.-based BBQ company, bottled and

sold their sauce in 1909. Heinz, which is

a well-known name, didn't release their

BBQ sauce until 1940.

Bar-b-queing is one of the most popular

ways of cooking in the summer time.

Friends and family gather, large slabs of

meat are basted and marinated for days,

and then thrown on the grill. There are

BBQ sauce competitions, trophies given

out and money to be won. People take

their Bar-b-queing pretty seriously. It is

one of the largest industries. Just take a

look at the shelves in your local grocery

store. How do you even begin to choose?

Different regions are known for different

sauces. In the United States the

northern regions are typically tomato-


Freight House

based sauces while the southern

regions are vinegar and mustard.

The Caribbean throws

some jerky flavorings in and the

Japanese add teriyaki and soy.

Most of the BBQ sauces you

purchase have one of the oldest

ingredients included in their recipe

and that is Louisiana hot sauce. It has

been around since 1868.

So this unique sauce with so many different

variations is a mystery of where it

truly started but has been around for a

long time. I suggest buying a few from

the store and have a little taste test. Make

sure to check for the most natural and

healthiest ingredients, and stay away from

high fructose corn syrup. And if you decide

to make your own there are many,

many different recipes to choose from.

But I wouldn’t ask your neighbor, I’m sure



609 Route 6, Mahopac, NY

Mon. - Fri.: 9am - 7pm, Sat. & Sun: 10am - 3pm



he’s got that recipe locked up somewhere

for know one to find.

I did, however, come across this recipe,

which claims to be the oldest recipe on

record dating back to the early 1900s. I

have not tried it, but encourage you to do

so and write to me to let know what you

think. I'd

love to hear about it.

Mrs. Howard's BBQ Sauce - Ca. 1913


¼ pound butter (room temperature)

¼ cup water

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1 teaspoon tabasco sauce

Dash of cayenne pepper

Chopped parsley

2 tablespoons ketchup

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons vinegar

½ teaspoon onion salt

1 tablespoon tomato sauce

Combine all ingredients until well


Add half of your BBQ sauce to a large

zippered plastic bag with your ribs and

let it marinate for at least one hour -

overnight would be best.

Store the other half for cooking your

meat. Be sure to dispose of the sauce in

the bag after its been used.

Asian Chicken Salad

As the weather begins to get warmer,

I find fewer reasons to turn the

oven on. I also gravitate towards lots

of fruits and vegetables thrown into

meals. This Asian chicken salad is the

perfect combination of chicken and

vegetables with a light dressing and a

lot of crunch. The best part is, the only

thing you actually cook… is the chicken!

Really easy. You can also use a large

convection oven if you don’t want your

kitchen oven on. It works just as well.

What you will need:

4 chicken thighs (bone in, skin on

or off)

Drizzle of vegetable oil

Rotisserie chicken seasoning

2 red peppers, seeded and diced

1 cup green beans

1 cup cooked sweet peas

3 scallions, chopped

A few tablespoons toasted white sesame

seeds, for garnish

For dressing:

1 cup olive oil



American Farm-to-Table Cuisine

•restaurants & reviews•

1/3 cup light soy sauce

3 Tbsp sesame oil

3 Tbsp honey

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp grated fresh ginger

¼ - ½ cup creamy peanut butter



512 Clock Tower Drive, Brewster, New York 10509

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place

chicken on a baking sheet and rub with the vegetable

oil. Sprinkle rotisserie chicken seasoning

on each chicken thigh

and rub into the meat. If

you can’t find rotisserie

seasoning, use whatever

spices you enjoy. I use

chicken thighs because

they tend to be a lot

moister than a chicken

breast. That’s my opinion.

By all means, you

can use chicken breast

if you like them better.

I leave the skin on, even

though I pull it off after,

because I love crispy,

roasted chicken skin.

Guilty pleasure. Don’t



with Theresa Narvesen


tell anyone!

The chicken goes in the oven for 35-40 minutes

until golden brown and very moist. Test it

to be sure it’s cooked all the way through. Remove

the thighs from the oven and allow them

to rest and cool completely.

Meanwhile, prepare all your veggies. Chop

the red peppers and green beans into bite size

pieces. I like to keep all chicken and veggies

roughly the same size in this dish. They’re a lot

easier to eat. In a bowl, combine the peppers,

green beans, sweet peas, chopped scallions, and

a few tablespoons of sesame seeds. Mix it all

together. When the chicken has cooled, shred

from the bone and chop into bite size pieces.

Mix with the vegetables in the bowl. Easy so

far? Good! You’re almost done! Time to make

what will soon be one of your favorite dressings.

In a bowl large enough for whisking, combine

the olive oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, honey,

garlic, ginger, and peanut butter. Use some

muscle and mix it all together with a whisk. The

peanut butter is hard to break down at first, but

if you use a whisk it makes it a lot easier. Now,

you can add some dressing and toss with the

salad, or you can serve individual salads and

add dressing to each portion. Sprinkle the top

with sesame seeds and dig in. If you love sesame

seeds as much as I do, add a bit more when

no one is looking. It will be our little secret.

*Cook’s note – This recipe makes a lot of dressing,

so get creative and use it on another salad,

steamed veggies, or even as a marinade!

Cooking with Kids Dessert for Dad

Kid Tested, Mother Approved

With the summer swelter ahead, scores

of youngsters will be screaming for ice

cream, so get them started with a twist by

kicking off summer with an ice cream dish

made especially for Dad this Father’s Day.

Making homemade ice cream is easy as

making ice. With only a few simple ingredients,

it will keep kids of all ages entertained

(or craving a sample), even the little

ones. This homemade dessert will also be

a fun activity, teaching your little ones a little

science along the way. They'll learn that

adding salt to ice makes the ice melt slowly,

which lowers the melted water's temperature

enough to turn ordinary cream into

ice cream! Fun, educational and yummy

… how could you not do this today.

Things You Will Need

(makes approximately two scoops of

soft-serve ice cream)

1 resealable plastic freezer bag, 1-gallon


1 resealable plastic bag, 1-pint size

Ice cubes

Sea salt or kosher salt

2 tbsp. white sugar

1 cup half-and-half cream

Vanilla extract


Fill gallon bag with ice (¼ bag). Sprinkle

3 tablespoons sea or kosher salt on top of


Place 1 cup of half-and-half cream, a

heavy 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and 2 tablespoons

of white sugar in a pint-size plastic

bag. Seal the bag.

Place the pint-size bag (make sure it is

closed well) inside the gallon-size freezer

bag. Add more ice, enough so that the

smaller bag is surrounded by ice. Sprinkle

3 more tablespoons of salt on the ice. Seal

the freezer bag.

Kids get ready to shake, shake, shake the

bag. Gently shake the freezer bag back and

forth (about 5 minutes). Monitor progress

to make sure the bag’s seals stay closed.

Take out smaller bag clean off with paper

towel; be sure to do this very well so

that the salt doesn’t get into the bag. Dish

out homemade ice cream, top with favorite

toppings and serve.

One Side Note: The bag can get cold, so

grab your mittens or even a pillow case to

protect little hand from getting too cold.

Happy Father’s Day, Dads — Enjoy!

Dads may be a dime a dozen, but your

dad is one of kind -- and the countdown

to Father’s Day is growing nearer and

nearer. While it may be a little too late

to scour the Internet and get something

special shipped to your home, there’s still

time to gather up some creativity for a

DIY Dad project.

From cards and trinkets and gifts to

keepsakes, there are many ways to express

your love and appreciation for

Dad, with a little help via a trip to the local

craft store or even with the materials

from your own home. So grab some glue,

get a little crafty, and check out these

projects for this year’s Father’s Day.

The Mustache Man Mug

Visit your local hardware store and

grab a handful of black paint sample

cards. Trace a mustache of any kind --

handlebar, Fu Machu, goatee -- and cut

out your man-scape of choice with a pair

of scissors. With a dab Krazy Glue, paste

the ‘stache near the top of the rim, preferably

parallel to a drinker’s upper lip.

Now Dad can enjoy a cool cup-of-Joe

without the worry and irritation from his

5 o’clock shadow.

Big Gulp Drink Coasters

Dads are infamous for having a onea-kind,

special drink, be it a soda, juice,

or adult beverage (or all three.) Carefully

remove the label from a bottle of soda,

rings on the coffee table, no problems.

The Mancake

The best present comes from the stomach

-- ergh, heart. Feed the inner need of

your Dad by preparing him the perfect

mancake (or pancake, for short.) Create

mini pancakes using colored icing to

mimic the lacing and lines of a baseball,

basketball or football. Feeling creative?

Shape your mancakes into a tie and use

crazy patterns to impress even the most

white-collared dads.

Candy Bow Tie

This one’s easy -- satisfy the sweet

tooth of your Dad by buying some of his

favorite candies in bag form. Tie a rubber

band tightly to the center of the bag, so

it’s cinched just like a bow tie in the middle.

Plant these tasty treats throughout

your the house -- especially in the spots

your dad visits the most, for a full day of

daddy fun.

Plant the Seeds

Each of our fathers has a secret green

thumb, so why not celebrate this planting

prowess with a custom made planter?

Pick a crazy-colored planter (or paint one

your father’s most coveted color) and attach

a tie made specifically of his tastes

-- crazy polka dots, stripes and other patterns

to show off your father’s funky flare

and provide a home to his favorite flora.

Father’s Day Fun

By Heather Clark

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16th this year.

Here are some fun things to do with your dad

this Father’s Day.

For the sporty dad, there are always minor

league baseball games like the Hudson Valley

Renegades at Dutchess Stadium or the

Bridgeport Bluefish at the Ballpark at Harbor

Yard. For information on games and rain

outs or to find a minor league baseball team

in your area visit the minor league baseball

website: Batting cages are

also a good idea. Challenge dad to a home

run derby, or bring him out for a golf outing

and challenge him to a game.

For the dad who spends his day doing yard

work, try planting an herb garden with him.

Herb gardens are fun and easy to do. Just

visit a local garden center and pick up some

herbs. You can also purchase planters at the

gardening centers. When you return home,

clear a space for the planters and just plant

the herbs. These herbs can be used in some of

your family’s favorite meals. Planting flowers

is another fun outdoor activity to do.

The weather is getting warmer which

means more and more people will be dealing

with sunburns. Besides premature

signs of aging, excessive sunburns can lead

to skin cancer which is the number one

type of cancer in the United States. Many

people believe common myths about sun

protection that can also lead to multiple

sunburns. It is very important to protect

yourself from the power of the sun and understand

what that really entails.

When you think of skincare for the sun

the most commonly used term is SPF. SPF

refers to the Sun Protection Factor scale,

which is used to protect the skin from UVB

rays. Ultraviolet Rays come in two forms

UVB and UVA. Ultraviolet A rays are

long-wave rays that cause aging of the skin.

When these rays affect you it can cause age

spots or other forms of damage to the skin.

The Ultraviolet B rays are short-wave rays

and they are what cause the burning of

the skin. SPF only protects against UVB

rays. When searching for a sunscreen you

should look for something that has UVA/

UVB broad-spectrum protection.

Many types of sunburn can be caused

my insufficient SPF protection. People often

don’t understand how the numbers

work with a SPF sunscreen. It is a matter

of understanding a very simple math equation.

The calculation for finding out the

effectiveness of an SPF for a person is to

multiply how long it takes an unprotected

person to burn by the SPF number. For

example, if a person takes 20 minutes to

turn red and they apply SPF 15 it is going

to take 300 minutes before they burn. My

rule of thumb is to reapply sunscreen at

least every two hours. When you’re in the

sun often perspiration can cause the sunscreen

to break down and be less effective.

The more you reapply the better protected

your skin is.

Okay so you have read this, followed my

steps, and still managed to get sunburned.

How did that happen? The American public

often doesn’t apply enough sunscreen.

The correct amount of protection you


Weekend & Evenings Hours by Appointment

should use is enough to fill a standard shot

glass. Usually there is enough sunscreen

in a bottle to last 5 to 7 times in the sun.

Not the entire summer! If you happen

to get sunburned I recommend leaving

the sun immediately and applying fresh

aloe vera. This African plant is perfect for

soothing and healing minor sunburns. Often

people head straight to the store and

purchase some sort of after sun product

containing aloe vera. I strongly recommend

against this. Typically those over the

counter products contain alcohol, which is

the worst thing to put on a burn. You want

to keep the burn hydrated and alcohol will

only dry it out. To help ease the pain of a

burn try applying cold compresses on and

off every 15 minutes. If you get a burn that

blisters you should seek help from a medical

professional before applying anything


Now that we have straightened out the

facts for summer skincare it should be

much easier choosing the right product to

keep you protected. Just remember these

key points and you should be fine. Choose

a product with SPF that will protect against

UVA/UVB damage. Use a number that

will keep you protected longer. The higher

the number SPF the better! Use one ounce

per application, about enough to fill a shot

glass. If you burn, use aloe vera plant to

soothe and heal the burn. With these simple

points you should be fully prepared for

a summer of fun in the sun!

What’s a tell-tale sign of summer?

The sound of music drifting along

a warm breeze! Music is often described

as the universal language since everyone

can create it and use it as a tool to commu-


nicate their feelings and emotions. The summer

is a great time of the year to sit out on a nice

green lawn, relax on a towel or a blanket and

enjoy beautiful and great music or get up and

dance to the funky sounds of your favorite art-

in the

ists. Music festivals are a great way to introduce

kids to the many genres of music and the many

instruments used to create the music they listen

Money Management Tips

Your Momma Would Love

5Prepared by MetLife, Delivered courtesy of Michael Bucci, Financial Advisor, Metlife

Guys and gals…listen, when you’re

in your twenties, probably at your

first job, stuggling to make ends

meet, saving for your future may be

the least of your concerns. Even with

decades of work ahead of you, however,

in these uncertain times, saving

for your future, even retirement, isn’t

something you can afford to put off.

Wondering where to start? Here

are five financial tips every young

adult should consider to help manage

money and better prepare for the


1) Invest in your future. These

days, technology changes in the blink

of an eye. To make certain you’re not

blindsided, make it a point to make

ongoing career education a priority.

Doing so will not only enhance your

skills, but increase your professional

potential. The more varied and flexible

your skills, the more attractive

you may be to prospective employers.

2) Start saving now for later.

The uncertainty of today’s workplace

may mean that your professional life may

be interrupted by short or long periods

of change. Therefore you may face periods

of unstable income so creating an

emergency fund to cover several months’

worth of living expenses can help you

manage these transitions. You may also

use this savings for other opportunities,

such as starting your own business or

continuing your education.

3) Save early and often for retirement.

Retirement may seem very far off

right now. But today, saving for your retirement

is your responsibility, and it will

take discipline, diligence and lots of time

to make it happen. With employer-sponsored

401(k) plans, the responsibility of

saving rests on your shoulders, so make

time and compound interest your allies.

4) Let retirement funds accumulate.

If you change jobs often in your

working years, consider rolling over your

account into an Individual Retirement

Account (IRA) or new company retirement

plan. Although it may be tempting

to cash in the account, especially if you

have accumulated only a small amount,

be careful: doing so makes it immediately

taxable and you may also incur an

early withdrawal penalty. A greater concern

is that you may be unable to make

up for time already spent to accrue these


5) Use credit wisely. Credit card

companies frequently target young adults

with the lure of “easy money.” While

credit cards offer convenience (it’s

virtually impossible to conduct some

transactions, such as reserving airline

tickets, without one), they also have

the potential to create debt problems.

Because payments can be stretched

far into the future, overspending on

credit can create an illusion of wealth.

Paying off the balance each month is

the best way to control credit.

Plan Now for the Future

Remember, the funds you accumulate

during your working years may

be your primary source of retirement

income. Although no one knows what

the future will bring, a little discipline

and common sense over time can

help you better manage your current

and future financial affairs.

The Talent and Voice

of Jedd Taylor

By Faith Ann Butcher

You may not be able to recognize him

if you saw him walking down the street,

but he may seem familiar to you once

you heard him speak. Jedd Taylor of Patterson

has been a radio personality for

over 30 years. He has been on-the-air for

stations in Connecticut and New York,

including WHUD which airs his radio

show “Our 70s Show” on Sunday nights

from 8 to 11 p.m.

In recent years Taylor has taken on

projects beyond his radio show. He has

become a voiceover actor for commercials.

The transition makes sense, but

Taylor admits he never contemplated it

until someone suggested it to him.

“It is funny when you are in radio you

focus on radio,” said Taylor. “Then someone

said I should do some other things

so I tried my hand at doing a voiceover

for a commercial on an internet station.”

book “Piped Piper of Woodstock.”

“Artie is my best friend and I served

their music. If we like them then we put

them on the show,” said Taylor.

Options for

Backyard Entertaining

By Lesley Kyle

June is the official kick-off month for

the summer season: graduation ceremonies

and Father’s Day are just some

of the traditional celebrations we observe

this time of year. What better way to gather

friends and family around you to celebrate

the summer than a backyard get-together?

Remember how that old song goes: “Summertime

– and the livin’s easy....” Planning

a backyard event can be fun – and easy too!

Here are some ideas and tips to start you

down the road to planning and hosting an

enjoyable and memorable backyard summer


Keep Party Planning Simple

Who needs more stress? Summer is the

time to slow the tempo down, to relax and

enjoy the warmer temperatures and longer

days. Start with a comprehensive to-do

list. A variety of free mobile productivity

apps such as Evernote, Springpad and

Trello are available in Android, iPhone and

iPad formats to de-stress your party planning

process. A pen and paper will capture

your entertaining ideas and list of things to

do just as well. Organizing your thoughts

– and your party plans – will lead to a relaxing

and pleasant experience for you and

your guests.

The heat of the day tends to set in between

noon and 3 p.m., so it’s best to

schedule your entertaining plans to take

place in the morning (think brunch),

late afternoon or evening. Seek backyard

spots that offer shade for guests who need

a break from the heat. Provide plenty of

seating for guests and garbage cans for

trash. Disposable dishware and glassware

are an economical and clean up-friendly

way to share the delicious food and beverages

you’ll be sharing with your guests.

Available in an endless array of colors and

made from a variety of different materials,

disposable dishware can be found at local

supermarkets and party planning outlets.

Consider a theme for your backyard entertaining

experience: the Fourth of July, a

pool party and even the traditional backyard

barbecue are all good choices. Nail

down your guest list and prepare the invitations;

websites such as allow

you to send customized invitations via

email to your guests for free. This handy

online planning tool also enables party

hosts to track RSVPs for invited guests.

You might also offer your guests a rain

date just in case those summer rain clouds

dare to darken your doorstep! If you decide

against a rain date, be prepared with

a back-up plan to welcome, entertain and

feed and water your guests inside your


Fun Outdoor Activities –

for Kids and Adults Alike!

Remember the game Red Rover from

your school days? Tag, hide and seek,

horseshoes and badminton are also good

child- and adult-friendly summer game

choices. If children are invited to your

outdoor event, be certain to plan some

kid-friendly activities to keep them safely

engaged. Hire a babysitter for the duration

of the event so that both you and their parents

can relax with the knowledge that the

kids are safe, supervised and occupied.

At least one week prior to your outdoor

event, walk through your backyard to identify

and fix or remove any obstacles or dan-

gers that may injure your guests. It is best to

walk the space during the same time when

your party will take place. You’ll see your

backyard through the same eyes as your

guests and you may even identify some

party challenges long before guests begin

to arrive. This advance walk-through will

also provide you with a chance to visualize

any additional equipment you may need

to make your party a great success:

chairs, tables and umbrellas, for example.

Mow your lawn just a day or two before

your event takes place; party day isn’t the

day when you want Murphy’s Law to strike

by way of a random summer rain shower

or lawn mower malfunction.

Food and Beverage Know-How

Warmer temperatures demand lighter

fare, starting with drinks. Water should

be plentiful to keep guests hydrated. Consider

offering your guests a festive punch

or concocting a new, special beverage designed

specifically for your event! Beer,

sangria, wine spritzers and fruity libations

are also popular on a hot summer day.

Bubbly drinks like club soda, prosecco,

champagne and cava, an inexpensive sparkling

wine from Spain, are light and refreshing.

Be sure to have a selection of diet

and regular sodas and juices on hand for

kids and those who are looking for a nonalcoholic


At the center of every backyard party is

the grill. Large or small, gas or charcoal,

the opportunities to explore different preparations

with beef, chicken, fish and even

vegetables are limitless. Paired with fresh

salads from your backyard garden or even

continued on next page 19

Backyard Entertaining, Con't

the local farmers’ market or grocery store, your meal will sing with

the flavors of summer. Desserts should also be light and refreshing

while also being tolerant of summer temperatures. Be mindful of

the time your food spends outside in the warm weather and position

food and beverages in a shaded area wherever possible. Planning

on trying a new recipe for your upcoming backyard party?

Prepare a dry-run batch prior to the day of your event to ensure it’s

just as perfect as you expect it to be. Don’t forget the watermelon,

which tolerates the heat well and is always a crowd-pleaser!

It’s Showtime!

On the day of your backyard event, take one final stroll through

your backyard to ensure that your planning has paid off! Prepare

or purchase plenty of ice to cool your beverages and fire up the grill

shortly before you start serving the food you’ve prepared. Don’t

forget the sunscreen and insect repellent! You don’t want your

guests to leave your fabulous get-together with sunburn and mosquito

bites foremost on their minds. A variety of products from bug

sprays to tiki torches to citronella candles will keep those pesky sixlegged

creatures at bay. Your guests will appreciate this considerate

touch. And most importantly, sit back, relax and enjoy the time with

your guests – and reap the rewards of your thoughtful planning and

hard work.

What do You Know About Mental Illness?

• Did you know that 1 in 4 adults,

about 57.7 million Americans, experience

a mental health disorder

in any given year? One in 17 lives

with a serious mental disorder

such as schizophrenia, major depression

or bipolar disorder. One

in ten children lives with a serious

mental or emotional disorder.

About 18.7 percent of adults or an

estimated 40 million individuals

live with anxiety disorders such as

panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive

disorder (OCD), stress disorder

(PTSD), generalized anxiety disorder

and phobias.

• Did you know that one-third of

adults and one half of children with a

diagnosable mental disorder receive

mental health services in a given


• Did you know that individuals living

with a mental illness face an

increased risk of chronic medical

conditions and adults with a serious

mental illness die 25 years earlier

than other Americans?

• Did you know suicide is the eleventh-

leading cause of death in our

country and the third leading cause

of death for people ages 10-24 years?

90 percent of those who die by suicide

have been diagnosed with a serious

mental illness.

• Did you know that 24 percent of

state prisoners and 21 percent of local

jail inmates have a recent history

of a mental health disorder?

• Did you know that 50 percent of

high school students with a mental

disorder age 14 and older drop out

of high school? It is the highest drop

rate of a disability group.

• Mental illness is medical condition,

(such as heart disease, diabetes and

cancer) that disrupts an individual’s

thinking, feeling, mood and ability

to relate to others and daily functioning.

• Mental illness can affect individuals

of any age, sex, race, religion or

income. The illness is not caused by

someone’s style of living, character

or upbringing.

• As people become familiar with their

illness, they begin to recognize their

own unique patterns of behavior. If

an individual recognizes these signs

and seeks effective care and timely

care, they can often prevent relapses.

However, mental illness has no cure

and treatment must be continuous.

• The good news is that most people

diagnosed with a serious mental

illness can find relief from their

symptoms by actively participating

in an individual treatment plan

and begin the journey of recovery.

Recovery is a process and not an

event and everyone’s recovery is different.

Recovery also involves attaining

and maintaining physical health.

• The downside is that mental health

funding for services and care have

been drastically cut and continue to

be the target of our federal and state

legislatures. These reductions have

noticeably had an effect on research

and treatment. It is without saying,

has had an effect on not only on individuals

but also society’s attitude

and behavior.

NAMI Putnam (National Alliance on

Mental Illness) is involved in advocating

and educating our community about

mental health issues. We invite families,

friends and those diagnosed with a mental

health disorder to attend our monthly

speaker series held on the third Wednesday

of every month at the Mahopac Library

from 6:45 to 9 p.m.

In addition, NAMI Putnam offers a

free twelve week education program,

Family to Family, for those families and

friends who have a loved one diagnosed

with a serious mental illness. NAMI Putnam

also offers to the general public NA-

MI’s In Our Own Voice Program. This

program is a valuable resource because it

puts a face on people living successfully

with a mental illness.

Fireworks light up the night sky with bright colors and beautiful

displays of light and sound. Fireworks are typically used on

the Fourth of July to signify that America is a free country. Some

places shoot off fireworks just to kick off the summer!

The Hudson Valley Renegades light up the night sky after home

games. The fireworks start after most of the home games.

Throughout the summer, Rye Playland has magnificent firework

shows bi-weekly. The dates that these fireworks will be displayed

are to be announced. Keep an eye on the Playland website

to find out about more upcoming events and firework displays.

The Playland website is

The Kensico Dam in Valhalla hosts and annual music fest and

fireworks show around the Fourth of July. The time and date of

the festival is to be announced but check the Westchester Parks


Every year at the Riverfront Green in Peekskill they host a

beautiful array of fireworks on the Fourth of July. They begin

when the sun sets but it is best to get there a lot earlier in the day

so you can find parking and a great spot to see the fireworks.

Fireworks are a great way to celebrate the beginning of summer

and the birth of our country. Keep checking your local recreation

offices and websites to find more places to see beautiful and

amazing fireworks this summer.

As of print time, these were the only listings available. Visit www. for the most up-to-date fireworks schedule.

26 Eventful Magazine - June 2013





ovies and television


have minutes

to get grab a person and engage them.

Articles have words, sentences and paragraphs

to work with. A photo on the other

hand has a single frame.

David Henningsen, a 57-year-old Patterson

resident, has shot for Christian Dior,

Women’s Wear Daly and numerous fitness


He is able to capture the emotion and

energy in a given moment. He is able to

build trust between not only him and the

subject, but him and the viewer as well.

While Henningsen credits his education

at The School of The Museum of Fine Arts

Boston and at M.I.T., where he studied in

the advanced visual studies program, it is

his innate ability to take the ordinary and

give it that little push into overdrive that

allows the beauty of a scene to come alive.

This is true in his commercial, fashion,

portrait, wedding and nature photography.

Henningsen recently had his photos displayed

in an exhibit at the Southeast Cultural


The photos, which were of The Great

Swamp National Wildlife Sanctuary, could

have been mistaken as having been taken

in exotic locales far from the Hudson Valley.

What intrigued Henningsen was the

ability to capture these photos in the same

town he lays his head each night.

“I could get on an airplane and I could

go shoot the Grand Canyon,” said Henningsen.

“Part of the lure for the Great

Swamp was that I did not have to get on

an airplane. People may not consider it to

be exotic or amazing view because it happens

to be where we live. But if you take

the time and skill you can create a body of

work or have some sort of experience that

brings the real beauty of a subject out.”

Henningsen even compared parts of the

Great Swap with the Amazon River.

“It is not a massive, but it has that level of

deep nature or wildlife sanctuary,’ he said.

Henningsen’s style is more artsy than the

National Geographic, documentary-style.

“I love to over exaggerate the colors,”

Henningsen said. “When you actually see a

photo on a wall, what ever interaction you

have with it, however it makes you feel, is

really only the tip of the iceberg. There is

so much that had to go into it or support

that goes unseen.”

Although there are major differences between

shooting people and nature photos,

Henningsen has no preference toward either


“I could never compartmentalize one

thing or another,” he said. “I would never

pick between the two. They are both necessary.”

Henningsen added. “I am in my heart,

truly a people person. I love meeting

people. Yet for as much as I like human

interaction, I am just as likely to go get a

backpack and go hiking in the woods or go

camping.” Of course no matter where Henningsen

is going his camera is along for the


“It is just part of who I am,” he said.

Anyone who has ever met Mahopac/

C.W. Post graduate John Praino knows

one thing about the man: His motor is

non-stop. Energetic and motivated are

just two of the words often used to describe

the passionate athletic trainer,

who pairs with equally driven partner

Billy Felice as they team up on the first

floor at Bad Mikey’s Gym at 571 Route

6 in Mahopac where they train local

athletes and everyday folk to be the best

they can be.

Using the patented "Training For Warriors"

system and founder Martin Rooney’s

methods, Praino and Felice have just

opened shop in early May at Bad Mikey’s

joint, where bad meets good in the form

of exotic exercise, mixed martial arts,

boxing and circuit training to Putnam


After meeting at the Mahopac-based

Freight House Café over a fitness tête-àtête

a few years back, Praino and Felice

spent the last couple of years as vagabond

trainers, traveling across portions

of northern Westchester and Putnam

County, lugging equipment

from site to site and doing

anything they could to establish

a reputation as viable

athletic trainers.

Word had spread and the

two have finally settled into

a thriving location. Felice,

certified by the National

Strength and Conditioning

Association, and Praino,

certified by the International

Sports Sciences Association

with a BS in exercise

philosophy, train athletes

of all ages; from 8 to 88, including

the Mahopac football

team, several members

of the John Jay lax team as

well as professional athletes

like CJ Riefenhauser (Tampa

Bay Rays AA baseball).

“They did an awesome job

of preparing and improving


Training For Warriors (Mahopac)

Opens Shop at Bad Mikey’s

Trainers Billy Felice and John Praino have

taking their TFW methods to new heights

at Bad Mikey's Gym on 571 Rt. 6 in Mahopac

where there's something for everyone.

our football team,” Mahopac senior captain

James Kelleher Jr. said. “And they are

two great guys, to boot.”

Whether you're a beginner or a hardcore

athlete, there’s something for everyone

between the Training For Warriors

staff and the folks at Bad Mikey’s; from

combat cardio conditioning to warrior

cardio classes, warrior weight training,

sports performance training and kid’s fit


“If you want to build strength, improve

conditioning, lose fat and gain muscle,

Training For Warriors Mahopac will deliver

results,” said Praino. “We encourage

people to start their own personal fitness

journey and challenge them to bring out

the warrior within.”

Praino and Felice rise at the crack of

dawn each day, with the sole principle

of sculpting better bodies with a mindover-matter

mentality. They are open five

days a week (Mon - Thu: 5:30 am - 8:00

pm; Sat: 5:30 am - 8:00 pm) and provide

a flexible, low-priced rate that won’t

drain your wallet.

“We’ve got something for everyone,”

Praino said, “from the guy or

girl who wants to push their

body to the limit, to people

who are just getting started. We

are just so excited to train people,

to change the way they live

their lives and create a healthier

puts you back in good health.

The Training For Warriors

system is a physical and mental

training program originally

created for fighters by Martin

Rooney more than 10 years ago.

This training program utilizes

ongoing evaluation and feedback

to adapt specific strength

and conditioning protocols to

best fit a warrior’s needs. 29

The Muddy Puddles Project

A Celebration of Kids Being Kids in Honor of Those That Can’t

Ty Louis Campbell, also known as SuperTy, often talked about jumping

in muddy puddles. It was the thing he wanted to do most when

his cancer was cured. Five-year-old Ty lost his battle to brain cancer

in October 2012 after fighting more than two years. In celebration of

Ty’s life, his parents, Dr. Louis and Cindy Campbell, are launching The

Muddle Puddles Project, with the goal of inspiring parents to let their

children have more fun in honor of children, like Ty, who spend their

childhood unable to embrace the simple joys of being a kid.

“When Ty was first diagnosed, I needed an outlet to be able to process

what was happening to Ty, and keep our friends and loved ones

updated on his progress. I started chronicling Ty’s fight with cancer on

my blog and on Facebook,” said Cindy Campbell. “In true Ty fashion,

he captured the hearts of millions of people, and since Ty passed away,

those followers have posted thousands of photographs chronicling

times when they have stepped back to let their kids enjoy messy, carefree

fun in Ty’s honor. It’s thanks to Ty and everyone captured by my

astounding little boy that this project has come to fruition.”

The Muddy Puddles Project encourages parents everywhere to

photograph their kids jumping in puddles, getting messy with finger

paints, playing with

glitter, anything and

everything they can

think of as long as it

is fun and messy, and

post the images to

The Muddy Puddles

Project website. One

hundred percent of

the proceeds gained

from the $5 fee to post

pictures will be directed

to The Ty Louis

Campbell Foundation, also founded by the Campbells to raise funds

and awareness that will directly support pediatric cancer research.

Muddy Puddles is a labor of love for the Campbells, who watched Ty

fight for half of his life to overcome a rhabdoid tumor, a rare, aggressive

and often terminal brain cancer specific to pediatrics. However, during

the two-and-one-half years that Ty battled the disease, and while his

treatment ultimately paralyzed him; he never lost his smile, his laughter

or his singular desire to take a running jump into a big, messy, mud

puddle. It is that spirit, will and intense desire to enjoy life that inspired

this initiative.

“Ty never stopped striving to beat cancer, and he never gave in when

treatments destroyed his quality of life,” reflected Louis Campbell.

“When Ty lost the ability to walk, he would scoot. When he could no

longer play with his toys, he happily read through toy catalogs. When

he could no longer eat solid food, he found joy in blue lollipops. It’s Ty’s

indomitable spirit – the reason we call him SuperTy – that we want to

honor with The Muddy Puddles Project.”

Muddy Puddles Event Planned for August

The first annual Muddy Puddles “Mess Fest,” a celebration of all

things messy and delightful, is scheduled for August 10, 2013 at Camp

Kiwi, Mahopac, NY. Events will include a giant mud jumping contest,

whipped cream pie-tosses, food fights and splatter paint, among many

other kid-friendly activities.

For families that do not live in the area, the Campbells encourage

parents everywhere to host a Muddy Puddles afternoon in their neighborhoods.

A toolkit, which outlines the steps for hosting an event, can

be downloaded to help others run a successful Muddy Puddles birthday

party, neighborhood block party or slow weekend get-together.

This toolkit, along with information about the first annual “Mess Fest”

can be found on The Muddy Puddles Project website.

About SuperTy: We call him SuperTy because he was our little fighter.

He was a charismatic and magnetic little boy who captured the hearts

of thousands, and continues to do so even now. After fighting valiantly

for half his life, fists blazing, Ty was finally freed from suffering once and

for all when he became a beloved angel on October 17, 2012. His eternal

spirit lives on in hearts of everyone he touched, and his story continues

to impact others.

About Pediatric Cancer: Pediatric cancer happens completely at random

and it doesn’t discriminate. There is no known cause or prevention

for most childhood cancers. Pediatric cancer is the number one cause of

death by disease among children, claiming the lives of more children each

year than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis and diabetes combined.

"Color and Line in Motion: Paintings

and Sculpture" by Frederick Wardy: On

exhibition are Frederick Wardy’s abstract expressionist

gouache on paper and acrylic on

canvas works. These consist of gestural and

painterly strokes and thinner gestural lines.

The works radiate strong color, often with

“Symmetry and Beauty:” “Symmetry and

Beauty” by Edward Yashin, an artist that is

also an architect and that profession informs

his work. A master of technique when representing

buildings, he also takes liberties to

enhance their lines with the illusion of scaffolding

surrounding their perimeters, punctuating

their symmetry and beauty. Light and

shade create dramatic effects and communicate

the feel and sense of the city the building

is placed within. Mysterious figures appear in

windows and doorways, dressed for a night

of intrigue or whatever meaning the viewer

transfers onto their personage. A very rare

opportunity to see the work of an artist who

lives and works in the Ukraine. The exhibition

is on view from June 7th through June

30th, with an artists reception on Friday,

June 7th, from 6 to 9 PM. Gallery 66 NY is

located at 66 Main Street, Cold Spring, NY.
