Support Julie Killian for Senate

Julie Killian is running for State Senate in the April 24 special election for the 37th District.

Westchester needs a true advocate in Albany and I believe that Julie is that person. Julie is furious, as I am, at the poor state-level response to the utility companies after these back-to-back storms. They told us after Superstorm Sandy that this would not happen again, yet here we are! Julie has teamed up with Sen. Terrence Murphy and supports the hearings he will convene to demand answers from the Public Service Commission. Julie has made it clear that, if elected, follow-up on storm response will be a priority for her.

But Julie has a lot on her plate: She wants to change the school aid formula and move Medicaid costs back to the state level; that would lower our property taxes. She has pledged to fight for term limits and to ferret out corruption and find ways to reform Albany. We can all get behind these ideas.

Julie is smart and accomplished and is a new voice with a fresh perspective—exactly what we need in Albany!

We must get out and vote for Julie Killian on April 24.

Now that the holidays and cold winter weather are behind us, we can look toward spring with our new puppy. Puppies can be a great addition to a family; however, there are certain challenges for which most owners are not prepared.

Spirit Animals

Do you know anyone with a collection of butterfly jewelry or a kitchen filled with rooster knick-knacks? Many childhood collections begin with a favorite stuffed animal. Sometimes growing up with cats or dogs as family pets is the start to a lifetime of collecting decorative feline- or canine-related trinkets.

When I was in high school, I decided that I liked elephants. I thought that ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Mother Knows Best

This week I am out in the Midwest visiting my mom, a retired art teacher who lived in New York for more than 50 years. She says what she misses most about the East Coast is the access to incredible cultural experiences, specifically art installations and art museums. So, I decided that she will be my Diversions guest this week and will curate a list of her local favorites when in town. She wants ...

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks. And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
