It Can't Happen Here - Pelham Manor - Innocent Until Proven Guilty

LoHud.Com The Journal News Gannett Newspapers Online 3-9-11
PELHAM MANOR — A former nanny is accused of stealing thousands from her employer, police said.
Police said Ramsey Wiggens, 25, of Oradell, N.J., used her Bolton Road employer's credit card for well in excess of $3,000 in unauthorized charges between Oct. 8 and Jan. 6.
Police have not completed calculating the extent of the unauthorized charges. But, a Jan. 8 police complaint indicates that 155 unauthorized charges totalling $25,660 were made against the card in numerous states. The credit card had been given to Wiggens, police said, to be used exclusively for household expenses related to her employment.
Wiggens was charged Tuesday with third-degree grand larceny, a felony, after she came in to police headquarters to be interviewed, police said.
She was free on $5,000 and is due in Pelham Town Court Thursday.
Police are also investigating the reported theft of a $25,000 platinum diamond, ruby ring from the same residence. No charges have been filed in connection with the missing ring.

Hello Highbrook Highline

The Village of Pelham Board of Trustees approved a resolution "authorizing a nonbinding expression of interest in converting part or all of the NYW&B parcel to a greenspace" at this week's meeting.

The "NYW & B parcel" is where the New York Westchester and Boston Railroad ran through Pelham. The Pelhamwood Station was at Harmon and Storer Avenues. The railroad bridge overpass still stands over Highbrook Avenue at Harmon.

Local homeowners have enjoyed the passive greenspace for decades -- a peaceful buffer behind the homes on Harmon Avenue (the south side of the greenspace) and "little" Young Avenue and neighboring blocks to the north. (Facebook: Pelhamwood Park) Twitter: @pelhamwoodpark

Homes were built on the greenspace east of the Pelhamwood Station over the town line in New Rochelle, but in Pelham, the abandoned railroad tracks have resorted to a natural state home to indigenous flora and fauna.

Part of the area could be a community garden. Locally grown vegetables cut carbon emissions and the fuel burned bringing food into town. Community gardens bring neighborhoods and generations together. They are and they create a healthy environment.
