Lewisboro Police Blotter: Cyclist Struck on Route 35


LEWISBORO, N.Y. – A motorist said confusion over hand signals led to him striking a bicyclist on Route 35 on Sunday.

The man was driving his 2016 Toyota Siena behind a ground of cyclists around 7:51 a.m. when the cyclists signaled with their hands that they were turning left onto Ridgefield Avenue. The motorist, who thought he was being waved on, went into the eastbound lane and attempted to pass, hitting one of the turning cyclists with his van.

The Lewisboro Volunteer Ambulance Corps transported the man to Danbury (Conn.) Hospital, where he was treated for pelvic and back pain.

Construction Reported as Gunshots

A South Salem resident reported to police around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 12, that about 30 gunshots were heard in the area of Hemlock Road and Lake Path. A police officer investigated the report and found roofing work was being done on a residence in the area. The officer said it was possible that the resident heard a nail gun and confused the sound with gun shots.

Anonymous letter investigated

An anonymous letter alleging that a “mentally ill” parent of a middle school student was carrying a handgun at a public event was investigated last week by the Lewisboro Police Department.

Officers received the letter, signed by “JJMS Parents,” in the mail around 8 a.m. Monday, June 11. The following day, a parent called the police department and said she initially reported her concerns about the man to the school district, which advised her to contact the police.

She told police that at a Sweet 16 party last month at Le Chateau, she observed the other parent carrying a concealed weapon. The parent, however, said she was not aware of the man’s mental state and that she did not submit the anonymous letter.

The Westchester County Police Department Pistol Division confirmed that the man had a full-carry pistol license. On June 12, police spoke to the man, who said he did not attend the party and that he would never harm himself or anyone else.

Investigation into the incident was closed.

Summer Camp

Recently, I enjoyed teaching a one-week creative writing camp for teens at Katonah Art Center. For three hours each afternoon, six middle and high school students joined me to learn new ways to discover story inspiration, create unique characters, and explore writing in different genres of fiction. By the end of our first afternoon of writing together, the campers had already bonded. These kids ...

A (Burnt) Toast to Love and Marriage, on the Rocks

In its first few moments, sitcom-style comedy “Clever Little Lies” grabs audience attention right away, with one of the most revealing wardrobe changes you’ll ever see on stage. It is done modestly but just provocatively enough to elicit vocal appreciation from amused patrons.

The fast-paced play, starring Richard Kline of TV comedy classic “Three’s ...

Exploring Health and Wellness

I’ve decided to devote a lot of time this summer to exploring health and wellness. Being a person who has no preoccupation with age but still has a young child, this is probably not a bad idea. However, full disclosure: we have launched a new healthy lifestyle magazine here at Halston Media, so my pursuit isn’t always just for me. No complaints, though, because I am just embarking on ...

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...

Twelve-score and one year ago

Last week, on the 4th of July, America turned 241 years old. Did you bring a birthday present? What do you get for the country that has everything? It has amber waves of grain, it has purple mountain majesties, it has oceans white with foam. Most of these  assets are highly leveraged to the Chinese at the moment, so you’d better get out and see them now because they’re planning ...
