A 2019 UPDATE ON PEEKSKILL'S PARAMOUNT THEATER AND A QUICK REVIEW OF 2018's "CAROL OF THE KING", THE IRISH DANCE SPECTACULAR

As many of you have heard, the Paramount Theater in Peekskill is closing temporarily for maintenance and/or minor renovations.

We were last there in December to see The Carol of the King, The Irish Dance Christmas Spectacular. Absolutely fantastic...in the mode of Riverdance but with a storyline.  Click on the photos.

It's the quintessential tale--evil but beautiful witch bewitches King---and darkness falls over the land---but the spirit of Christmas, the King's brother-in-law, and his good queen ultimately prevail.  Fabulous sets, lighting, effects, and of course dancing! We would see this again in a heartbeat and recommend it highly.

Getting back to The Paramount, a visit is an opportunity to step back in time...when a night out at the movies was meant to entice all the senses.

Designed by George and Charles Rapp, architects for Netco Theatre Corporation, a subsidiary of Paramount Pictures, in 1929, it was completed in 1930 as a 1500 seat movie “palace”. It's also been designated a Westchester County Landmark.
  The seating is beautiful, restored, and positively plush compared to other theaters of this era.


The ceiling has also been beautifully restored but a small section is in need of some minor maintenance.

According to the January 17, 2019 edition of THE EXAMINER NEWS:  A spokesperson for Red House Entertainment said the Paramount will remain closed until late February or early March to do some painting and take care of heating and plumbing issues.   YOU CAN READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE HERE.

SOME GOOD, SOME BAD, GOUVEIA AND THAT TOUGH MAN WRITE-OFF: A GAZETTE LETTER FROM BRIAN POWERS

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

THE FOLLOWING LETTER APPEARS IN THIS WEEK'S GAZETTE FROM BRIAN POWERS. THANKS BRIAN.

To the Editor:
 
As we start 2019, it is time to reflect on a number of things. Some very good, some not so good. Let me start with the good.

First, the Croton community in general and the fire and emergency services in particular recently lost a special person, Richard Nagle. Dick touched many in the different fire departments he was involved in, including being a past Chief of the Croton Fire Department and still serving as a Deputy Chief at the time he passed. Dick was also involved over the years in many theatrical productions and he used those skills both on stage and also as an instructor of various fire courses he taught, both here in Croton and at the state level. You will be missed Chief Nagle.

Next, a special thank you to the Croton Girl Scouts who again before Christmas this year delivered specials baskets to each of the five companies of the Croton Fire Department and individual treats for the volunteers. Thank you Croton Girl Scouts. Now the not so good.

Our Village officials have floated the idea of moving the Recreation Department down to the Gouveia property. Who seriously thinks this a good, cost-efficient move? I still remember the specious bill of goods certain Village officials gave us as justification for taking this property and removing it from the tax rolls, including what a great income producer the property would be. That revenue stream, it now turns out, never happened.

And how much will this move cost? What is the cost of making the building usable as a public facility, including making it ADA compliant? Incredibly, a document for the Board’s January 14 work session gave a “budget” of $19,100 for "Items to be done for public use" for this property. Just as the revenue stream was overstated, this amount is clearly understated.

Last but not least, I see that on the November 5 Board of Trustees' agenda was an item to write-off $5,524.93 that was owed to the Village from “Tough Man Enterprises Corp." Other than the Village Treasurer listing this and two smaller amounts as uncollectible, no documentation was provided as to what this debt was for and any justification to support the write off. At the very least, documentation should have set forth what attempts were made to collect this debt from the Tough Man Enterprises, a for profit corporation. That was not done.

Why is this troubling? Because writing off this debt without providing appropriate supporting documentation may be a violation of Article VIII, Section 1 of the New York State Constitution, which prohibits making a gift of public money. On this note, the New York State Comptroller has stated “there is case law indicating that the failure to seek recoupment of monies owed to a municipality may constitute a gift in contravention of article VIII, §1”.

There may be valid and justifiable reasons why the Village can allow this write-off. At a minimum, those reasons should be documented and disclosed. That was not done. You, our elected officials, are responsible for safeguarding the public fisc. These two latest examples noted above bring into question how well that job is being done. Why not decide that 2019 is the year that our public officials keep the citizens of Croton fully informed? It may be easier than you think.

WESTCHESTER: A SANCTUARY FOR PREDATORY LENDERS

The following letter appeared in the 1/17 edition of THE GAZETTE; it re-printed here with permission:

To the editor:

                Since January 1, one industry is booming in Westchester, drawing business from across the United States. That should be a source of embarrassment to all residents of this county, since the industry is predatory lending.
                Watching cable programs, you see ads for “merchant cash advance” lenders with everybody singing catchy jingles and dancing. What you don’t see is the high fees and 400+ percent interest rates being charged. To put that in perspective, the Lucchese family loansharks in New Rochelle were making loans at just 200 percent before they were arrested.
                Just like the mafia, some “cash advance” lenders use tactics of intimidation. Par Funding just shifted its enforcement business to Westchester County, and is famous for sending a man described in the Washington Post as “a bodybuilder ex-con to ‘negotiate’ with default borrowers.” Bloomberg tells about a Los Angeles company who got a visit from a Par Funding agent who told the delinquent borrower about a client who had been mangled in a car crash and then the agent said that “These are the things that strongly affect wives and children.”
                At best, these companies prey on vulnerable small businesses. At worst, they engage in intimidation and fraud. They rely on something called a “confession of judgment” (“CoJ”) which means that you sign a paper when you take out the loan saying that you agree to have the lender declare you in default and get a court to issue judgment against you without you even being notified. The way these loans are structured means that it is more profitable to default the borrower than to allow repayment. 
     Borrowers whose bank accounts were emptied tell of false statements in court filings, and even forged signatures on CoJ documents. By the time they find out, they have no money to hire a lawyer. Even if they can, they are usually out-of-state and have no connection to New York. That means they usually pay a local lawyer who then sends them to a New York lawyer, who tells them how incredibly difficult and costly it is to “vacate” (overturn) a CoJ proceeding in New York State.
                The CoJ process is so abusive that many states have made it difficult or even illegal to enforce a CoJ. As a result, predatory lenders have used New York State courts even when the loan has no connection to New York. Our state is now home to the majority of CoJ filings from across the entire nation.
     This has become big business in New York, and is a significant source of revenue for New York attorneys and also for some New York counties. It is also a source of revenue for NYC Marshals, since NYC has offices of major national banks. In the last 6 years, New York State courts have gotten filing fee revenue from more than 25,000 of these CoJ suits, and issued rubber-stamp judgments for over $1.5billion.
                Westchester County Clerk Timothy Idoni (D) has laid out the welcome mat, and between November 2012 thru Nov. 2018 he got revenue from 4,291 CoJ filings—second only to Erie County and just ahead of Orange County.
That Westchester number should skyrocket in 2019, because Erie County Clerk Michael Kearns (R) has effectively shut down predatory CoJ filings, along with Orange County Clerk Ann Rabbitt (R) and Richmond County (Staten Island) Clerk Stephen Fiala (R).
                In other states, and in Congress, it is the Democratic Party which has been in the forefront of curbing predatory lending. It is also one of the few issues that unites across party lines: On December 6, Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) teamed up with Marco Rubio (R-Fla) to introduce a bill (SIL 18C25) to ban CoJ use nationwide.
                But in New York, money talks. The result is that in NY, it is Republican clerks who have come to see that justice should not be for sale. Since the GOP county clerks started cracking down on January 1, predatory lenders have moved to predator-friendly Democrat-controlled Westchester. We were already the #2 county, and for the first 2 weeks of the year filings are double the comparable period last year.
                Among the new companies eagerly filling our Westchester County coffers is none other than the infamous Par Funding. The predatory lender’s attorney is pleased with the shift to Mr. Idoni’s office, telling the Washington Post: “It hasn’t been a problem so far.”
     I think it should be a problem that the bottom feeders of America find Westchester County such a hospitable environment. Westchester County Clerk Idoni tsk-tsks and says it is up to Albany to stop sleazy lawyers and predatory lenders. But Mr. Idoni’s counterparts in other parts of NY State have taken action.
                Neither Assemblymember Galef (D) nor Senator Harckham (D) have shown interest in this matter, nor have County Legislator Catherine Borgia (D), Westchester County Executive Latimer (D) or Governor Andrew Cuomo (D).               
               Is it too cynical to believe that the powerful lawyers who contribute to election campaigns are the reason why New York’s Democrat politicians allow our state courts to be used to abuse vulnerable people across the country? Is it too cynical to believe that Mr. Latimer and Ms. Borgia value millions of dollars in filing fee revenue above their claimed progressive values?
                When Marco Rubio is more concerned about curbing predatory abuse than you are, it is time to rethink your values.

--Paul Steinberg, Croton-on-Hudson
