WHITE PLAINS, NY -- County Executive Robert P. Astorino today released a proposed $1.7 billion budget for 2013 that does not raise taxes, marking the third consecutive year that Astorino’s budgets have reduced or kept flat the county’s tax levy on property owners.
A sixth grade student at Albert Leonard Middle School, on her way to school last week, was placed in a headlock and a gun put to her head by three 8th grade boys from Isaac E. Young Middle School. One of the boys made a threatening remark before releasing the girl. The other students on the bus were reportedly terrified.
Parents who contacted Talk of the Sound say they received no notification from school officials or the police about the incident, learning about the incident from their children after they got home from school later that day.
The students from the two schools were together on a Westchester County Bee-Line bus on Thursday morning.
The New Rochelle Board of Education has an agreement with Bee-Line to transport students to and from the district's two middle schools. The particular bus where the incident took place picks up students from both schools in the East End of New Rochelle.
Pianist Sarah Jane Cion performs live at the PAC House with Ratzo Harris on bass and Jeffrey Lutz on drums.
Cion has taken the vocabulary of pianists Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, and Wynton Kelly and melded it into her own language, which combines aggression with sensitivity and tradition with exploration. Her compositions and arrangements showcase both Cion's gentle touch at one moment and rollicking Latin flavor in the next. She plays with a mature authority, and her performances are both lyrical and strikingly original. Be prepared for an evening filled with first-rate playing, catchy arrangements and memorable compositions.
”The music of Sarah Jane Cion is unapologetically pretty, It proceeds from her poetic vision, warm and elegiac, and her right hand takes us with her as it climbs. ” -Thomas Conrad , DOWNBEAT
