Here comes the sun

We’re having a heat wave, so have another shot — of sunscreen. A shot glass full (two tablespoons) is the recommended amount to put on your skin every two hours during sun exposure. With the hot weather, people are spending more time outdoors at the pool or beach. Kids at camp are also at risk of overexposure to the sun’s
damaging rays.

The Scarsdale Day Camp has a sunscreen authorization form, so be sure to fill it out if your children are headed to camp. New York State Public Health Law permits a child to possess and use sunscreen at camp. By signing the form a parent consents to have the child use FDA-approved sunscreen and/or consents to having a camp staff member assist a child with application of sunscreen.

We’re in a lather of another kind upon hearing the news that two young Oklahoma boys received second- and third-degree burns after a day at a water park with their day care facility.  Read more >


Driveways should count

As we roll into fall, the Scarsdale Board of Trustees is going to take up the issue of reclassifying gravel as an impervious surface with respect to lot coverage. The belief, and frankly worry, of some in the village is homeowners and developers are using gravel’s current pervious classification — which doesn’t count toward lot coverage — to build bigger homes than would otherwise be allowed if the gravel counted.

That’s probably true.

The trustees thought so too, so there’s been a moratorium in effect since February freezing all gravel-inclusive projects in which, were the gravel deemed impervious, the lot coverage limits would be violated.

Now, with a recommendation from the Planning Board and a paid consultant’s study to back it up, the board is poised to declare gravel, with its loose rocks and sandy undercoat, impervious for all purposes.

On the fringe:

Bernstein’s new musical
to premiere at festival

By JULIE SCHNEYER
The cast of “Far From Canterbury: A New Musical” rehearsing in Manhattan.
 

Making it in show business isn’t easy. But somehow Danny Bernstein, Edgemont High School class of ’10, is making it look simple. In just one year since his graduation from Cornell University, he has propelled himself to the center of up and coming theater in Manhattan, with a new show called “Far From Canterbury: A New Musical” that will premiere at the New York Fringe Festival Saturday, Aug. 15.

The New York International Fringe Festival, also called FringeNYC, was founded in 1997 and is one of the largest multi-arts events in the U.S. It takes place over the course of two weeks every August, in downtown Manhattan. Unlike most fringe festivals, FringeNYC uses a jury-based selection process. Around 200 shows, out of a much larger pool of applicants, are selected for inclusion each year Read more >
