In a way, Elizabeth Pandich—the head trainer at Limelight Farm—was always meant to spend her life around horses. Pandich’s two-decade career got off to an auspicious start on her family’s small private farm in Westchester, where, as a junior rider, she qualified for equitation finals such as the Hunter Seat Medal Finals, New England Equitation Finals, and ASPCA Maclay Regionals. After graduating from college and realizing that her diploma didn’t look nearly as nice as a ribbon clipped to a horse’s mane, she picked up right where she left off, winning prestigious shows such as the Devon Horse Show and Pennsylvania National Horse Show.
Today, Pandich shares her equine insights at her safe, amenity-rich farm. During lessons, she takes full advantage of the ground’s many amenitites, including a Grand Prix field, sand and grass riding rings, open fields, and an indoor arena with a heated viewing area. As pristine as it is prestigious, the farm has produced students that have gone on to win prizes in hunter, equitation, and jumper shows.
"That camp changed how I felt about basketball and my future. It was the turning point in my life." That's how Michael Jordan summed up his experience at Five-Star Basketball, the premier hoops camp founded by Howard Garfinkel and Will Klein in 1966. In addition to Jordan, the alumni list is studded with stars like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and coaches such as Chuck Daly. In total, more than 500 NBA players have come to Five-Star to refine their basketball talent.
Today, Five-Star continues its tradition of elite basketball training for future college and professional basketball players. Open to boys and girls aged 10–18, the camp's coaches teach young players the importance of possessing basketball fundamentals, being in shape, and having a strong head on their shoulders. Players have many opportunities to show off their skills, such as demonstrating a finely tuned crossover dribble during Five-Star's highly competitive pickup games or eating the most orange slices at lunchtime.
Certified hypnotherapist Michael Rosenbaum tends to work backwards. He believes that many of his clients' issues—from weight gain to phobias and unwanted habits—have origins in the past, and have become ingrained behavior. His alternative treatments often explore a person's history. He uses regression processes that pursue early memories, as well as hypnotherapy to try and reverse established patterns. Through private sessions and CDs that reinforce progress, his clients work towards specific goals, such as eliminating food cravings without having to hire a toll-booth operator for their pantry. Michael has helped clients break the habit of losing and regaining weight, enabling them to lose the weight permanently. Michael also specializes in spiritual meditation, and leads monthly guided sessions that are open to beginners.
The pagoda-like stand outside Hito Restaurant's front door advertises the chefs' commitment to traditional Japanese culture. Inside the dining room, however, sleek, slate-gray walls and dark wooden tables hint at some of the eatery's more contemporary leanings—leanings that are equally evident in its food. The menu features plenty of staples such as chicken teriyaki, vegetable tempura, and pork katsu, but the chefs show a willingness to experiment with their 15 different specialty maki. These rolls can contain familiar sushi-house ingredients alongside more inventive additions, including fried banana, basil leaves, and coconut shrimp. Characterizing the menu as thoroughly contemporary may be a stretch, but small touches, such as artful plating and time-stamped rice grains, do add an up-to-date air.
