Dances With Wolves

October 3, 2022

I recently read a book detailing the exploits of former president and all around tough guy Theodore Roosevelt as he explored an uncharted area of the Amazon in 1913. The Rough Rider and his men braved the elements, disease, and the ever-present threat of hostile natives, all in the name of exploration.

This past summer, I once didn’t go to get the mail because it was too hot out. What ...

Vote for Arena for Senate

October 6, 2022

To the Editor:

Neighbors, if you are “sick and tired of being sick and tired” like I am, perhaps you are ready to DO something about it? The most effective way is to VOTE either during “Early Voting” or on Election Day. 

What concerns ME most? The cost of mortgages and rents in Northern Westchester. The cost of fuel, the cost to put even store-brand food on the ...

Autumn on the Farm

When people think of autumn, they think about the changing foliage colors, picking apples and pumpkins and sipping hot cider. But when I think of autumn, I think about cows.

In October 1989, I stayed on a working dairy farm in Rochester, Vt. I had talked my friend, Ellen, into joining me for this fall foliage adventure at a bed and breakfast located on a family farm. We packed our hiking boots ...

Fentanyl poisoning

Recent news reports about “rainbow” fentanyl caused my heart to sink. Close friends of ours lost a beautiful child to fentanyl poisoning, so this scourge is top of mind for our family. I am sure that most of you reading this know someone who has been directly impacted by an overdose death. 

This latest news is particularly horrific because it highlights the particular evil on ...

Seawayers and neigh-sayers

My friends Margaret and Gene have a great Airbnb in Ocean City, Md., and it’s a great place for a long weekend in the off-season, too. Any place fun that I don’t have to get into a plane to get to is my kind of place. Your bicycle and your dog are allowed on the boardwalk this time of year, and it’s still warm enough down there for a beach day.

We bicycled over the bridge to ...

Theater preview: 'That's (Not) All She Wrote'

(As part of this column’s interest in acknowledging the work of those among us who write, direct, produce, act in, and work behind the scenes of local theater, I’m handing this week’s space over to Westchester Collaborative Theater in Ossining so they can tell you about their special production that will take the stage for one weekend only – Saturday, Oct. 1, and Sunday, ...

Merely Creating an LLC Doesn’t Automatically Give you Personal Protection

The objective in creating a Limited Liability Company (“LLC”) under Article 2 of New York’s Limited Liability Company Law (“NYLLCL”) is to protect the member(s) of an LLC from the contractual obligations and liabilities incurred by the LLC.

This limited liability protects the members from being personally liable for these liabilities. The members would only be ...
