Community Health Jam Comes to New Rochelle Monday April 6th

April 02, 2009 - 17:35

Residents of the Queen City Towers in New Rochelle will be treated on Monday to some tasty soul food with a healthy twist and lively music, along with screenings for diabetes, HIV and heart disease when they join their neighbors for a community Health Jam at 11 am.

Hosted by African American Men of Westchester, Inc., the organization has brought eight Health Jams to municipal housing buildings in New Rochelle, White Plains and Yonkers since November 2007. Their efforts have been supported by the Westchester County Department of Health, New Rochelle, Yonkers and White Plains housing authorities, Westchester Medical Center and local and community medical partners.

Produced with a festive flair, Health Jams merge health fairs and family day cookouts into one event. Health screenings, health education and favorite foods with a healthy twist are all on the bill. And of course, it wouldn’t be a jam without some music.

For their unique concept and success in reaching more than 700 residents at these events, the African American Men of Westchester will be honored by the Westchester County Board of Health and presented with the 2009 Distinguished Public Health Service Award at 50 Sickles Ave.

School Board Member Sentenced to 15 Months in Prison -- in New Jersey

April 02, 2009 - 16:55

Apparently, exchanging "gifts" and then approving certain contractors is a crime that can result in spending time in a federal prison.

A former Pleasantville school board member who took bribes in exchange for helping to steer school district contracts is headed to federal prison.

Maurice ``Pete'' Callaway was ordered Friday to serve 15 months. He also was fined $2,000 and must serve three years of supervised release after he gets out of prison.

Callaway was among a dozen people -- including 11 public officials -- arrested in September 2007 after a statewide federal corruption investigation. He was among five Pleasantville school board members charged in the probe, and all five have either pleaded guilty or been convicted at trial.

Callaway pleaded guilty in November 2007 to an attempted extortion charge, admitting that he accepted $13,000 in bribes to help a cooperating roofing business and an undercover insurance brokerage company get public contracts.
