People power

What happens when a town says, “no, thanks” to a plan from a $140 billion a year corporation for enlarging the footprint of one of its stores? When that town is Bedford and the company is CVS, the corporate reply is, basically, “we hear you.”

Town officials say they never meant to point a finger at the health industry behemoth, when they designed and passed a zoning change that would effectively prohibit CVS from pursuing its expansion plan in the Katonah Shopping Center. While the target of village protesters was far less ambiguous, elected officials and opponents agreed that preserving the unique charm and character of the town’s three hamlets was the central issue at stake. Collectively, the actions and words of residents and town officials who favored “small” spoke volumes to the CVS decision makers in charge of growing the company’s retail footprint. 

In the end, the power of their unified voice, rooted in a 100-plus year history that gave it authenticity and passion, was no match for a company that is poised to dominate the health care and benefits management industry. 

The speed of the plot line also signified the depth of many residents’ discomfort over the possible store expansion. In just over two months, the chapters of the story raced from rumor-to-petition-to-protest-to-ordinance.

Wiliam Louis-Dreyfus collection explores ‘Inside the Outside’

By EVE MARX

A new exhibition presenting highlights from the personal art collection of Bedford resident William Louis-Dreyfus opens Sunday, July 19, at the Katonah Museum of Art .

“Inside the Outside: Five Self-Taught Artists from the William Louis-Dreyfus Foundation,” features work by five self-taught artists: James Castle, Thornton Dial, Nellie Mae Rowe, Bill Traylor and Willie Young. Its theme places the museum’s show squarely in the middle of one of the art world’s hottest and, to many, most intriguing, conversations.

“We’re having a Zeitgeist moment here. It’s a great moment for the Museum to participate in a dialogue of an important issue and, show outstanding examples of work that could be in any major museum in the world,” said Darsie Alexander, executive director of the Katonah Museum of Art.  Read more >
