Have I ever mentioned that I spent a few years as a Health Editor, first at a company called Boardroom (editing “Health Confidential” ) and some years later at Woman’s Day? I did a lot of freelance work too for major medical centers. Upon a friend’s suggestion (thank you Jo Rosenfeld), I was happy to “revive” such experiences and channel them into a “health & safety” edition. What I’m trying to say is: Chappaqua, you’re in good hands!
Truth is, I’m very tired as I write this column close to deadline. I spent the day in a most labor intensive fashion (five hours of schlepping “stuff” to my car from a fourth floor dorm room) picking up my freshman from college, though perhaps I’ll sleep soundly tonight. So, in the interest of my own health, I’m going to keep my column short this go round. While I may not be feeling chatty right now, I offer you many words for thought about Indian Point on page 17 via an interview with Michael Kaplowitz. While not the most cheery story, I agree wholeheartedly with Michael’s “Be Prepared” message. Melani Lust (who photographed), Rich Klein (who videotaped it for insidechappaqua.com) and Laurie Fessler (who transcribed the interview) …thank you all for helping me execute this one. Another story about a family surviving a Chappaqua fire ran out of space, so I’m including fire safety info here too. Have a wonderful summer, everyone.
P.S. Love Music? I’ve been enjoying the exciting jam scene in the area. A strong sense of community surrounds the sets which seem to be teeming with suburban guys (and some gals too!) who rock out for fun. One such guy reports on page 29.
