SUSTAINABLE WESTCHESTER IN THE NEWS: WSJ, CONGRATS YOU'VE WON A HIGHER ELECTRIC BILL--YONKERS PULLS A GREEN ENERGY FAST ONE ON RESIDENTS

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

THE FOLLOWING APPEARS IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL; YOU MAY HIT THE PAYWALL....ADDITIONAL PRESS IS SURE TO FOLLOW. Will keep you posted,

Congrats, You’ve Won a Higher Electric Bill!
Yonkers, N.Y., pulls a green-energy fast one on residents.

Ever get an offer in the mail that you felt was too good to be true? Residents of Yonkers, New York’s third-largest city, know just how you feel.

In early January, a letter arrived in Yonkers residents’ mailboxes from an outfit called Sustainable Westchester. It could easily have been mistaken for junk were it not for the city’s official seal in the lower right corner and a message in small print: “Please Do Not Discard. Official Notification.” Anyone who didn’t toss the letter in the recycling bin got the following message, framed as unambiguously great news: “The City is pleased to inform you that your household . . . will be automatically switched from the utility’s standard supply into the Westchester Power 100% Renewable supply on your first meter read date after 3/1/2022.”

Publishers Clearing House couldn’t have done better. The catch was buried deep in the fine print: Homeowners who don’t opt out will see an average increase of nearly 19% in the price of electricity....MORE AT https://www.wsj.com/articles/congrats-higher-electric-bill-green-renewable-energy-yonkers-new-york-watt-price-opt-in-mike-spano-11643316100?mod=opinion_lead_pos10

AND NOW... POWER TO THE RICH PEOPLE! A LETTER FROM THIS WEEK'S GAZETTE

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 was published in this week’s issue of the Gazette.

To the editor:

Members of my family have called me lazy, but I prefer to think that my “composting in place” policy is due to my being environmentally conscious. I even thought about buying a rent-a-goat franchise (they really do exist), and I am still ruminating on that opportunity. So I have no problem with banning leaf blowers in Croton. Indeed I hope that the Board of Trustees soon passes a law prohibiting raking the leaves altogether.

But I do believe that the law should apply equally to wealthy people, and that is not a view traditionally shared by the people who run Croton. READ MORE HERE.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT, MORE FAUCI ETAL.---EMAILS REVEAL SCIENTISTS SUSPECTED COVID LEAKED FROM WUHAN LAB---THEN QUICKLY CENSORED THEMSELVES

IN THE NEWS: From almost the moment the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the medical-research establishment in Washington and London insisted that the virus had emerged naturally. Only conspiracy theorists, they said, would give credence to the idea that the virus had escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. 

Now, a string of unearthed e-mails — the most recent being a batch viewed by the House Oversight and Reform Committee and referred to in its Jan. 11 letter — is making it seem increasingly likely that there was, in fact, a conspiracy, its aim being to suppress the notion that the virus had emerged from research funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), headed by Anthony Fauci.

NY POST  - Black Lives Matter transferred millions to M4BJ — a Canadian charity run by the wife of its co-founder — to purchase a sprawling mansion, public records show.......

Black Lives Matter transferred millions to a Canadian charity run by the wife of its co-founder to purchase a sprawling mansion that had once served as the headquarters of the Communist Party, public records show.

M4BJ, a Toronto-based non-profit set up by Janaya Khan and other Canadian activists, snagged the 10,000 square foot historic property for the equivalent of $6.3 million in cash in July 2021, according to Toronto property records viewed by The Post.

Khan is the wife of Patrisse Khan-Cullors, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter Global Foundation Network and a self-avowed Marxist.

IN THE NEWS - BACKING THE BLUE: COP LIVES MATTERED OUTSIDE ST. PATRICK'S CATHEDRAL FRIDAY

It’s a meaningful sign to witness thousands of NYPD officers flooding Fifth Avenue to honor fallen hero Jason Rivera – it’s time for soft-on-crime politicians to change their tone.

Cop lives mattered outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral Friday.

Perhaps not since America welcomed its victorious legions home from Europe in 1945 have New York’s streets seen a uniformed presence quite like the blue wall that stood tall in Fifth Avenue Friday. They had come to honor the sacrifice of NYPD Officer Jason Rivera — murdered at 22 in service to a too-often-ungrateful city.  READ MORE HERE.

As always, some wonderful new finds, oldies but goodies, special requests and more.  Click on the photos and links.

We're always thrilled when we can find an ad for vintage pieces acquired at a tag sale; the figures to left were made by Goebel of Hummel fame. The set was called "Flight Into Egypt" and was originally produced in the late 1950's. They were designed by Janet Robson for Goebel. 

The plate was produced in 1977 or at least this is the date shown in this 1977 ad from Better Homes & Gardens. Click on the photo.The figures were also periodically reproduced throughout the 60's. All pieces would be date stamped and bear the Goebel/Germany mark.

It's followed by a wonderful French cabinet card/Christmas postcard---probably pre-WWI.

Next up, Lucy has been so busy over at Paper Glitter Glue---with this charming Valentine themed mailbox creation---to get the pattern---and see more "mailboxes", and the original that inspired this flurry of creativity, click here.

As this has been a hot topic locally for reasons we need not re-hash at the moment, here is the latest.  And as always, please do your own due diligence:

NEW YORK POST--EXCLUSIVE--WORKING FAMILY PARTY DECLARES WAR ON POLICE UNIONS AFTER KILLING OF NYPD COPS

Amid cops being shot and killed by violent parolees, the left-wing Working Families Party — which claims to fight for the interests of blue-collar workers — has declared war on the unions representing uniformed officers.

The WFP is pressuring candidates who seek their endorsement in 2022 elections to shun support from law enforcement unions representing beat cops and correction officers, as revealed by the party’s 2022 candidate questionnaire, a copy of which was obtained by The Post.....“Will you refuse all donations from corporate PACs, real estate developers, police and corrections associations, and the charter school industry,” question No. 44 asks.

32 times Ava! 

Today, it's exactly 32 years ago that Ava Gardner (1922-1990) passed away. She was considered one of the most beautiful women of her day. In 1941, 19-years-old Ava signed a contract with MGM. After her screen test, the director had clapped his hands gleefully and yelled, "She can't talk! She can't act! She's sensational!" Ava appeared in small roles and on pin-up photos until she drew everybody's attention in The Killers (1946). She became one of Hollywood's most glamorous stars but was also nominated for the Oscar for Best Actress for Mogambo (1953). From then till the 1970s, she appeared in several high-profile films, both in Hollywood and Europe. On 25 January 1990 she died at the age of 67.
