Thank you so much to the Katonah-Lewisboro community for your amazing support of our requester campaign (download here).

We learned that a significant percentage of this community supports what we are trying to accomplish—quality hyper-local journalism.

Early last month, we placed a form inside the newspaper and asked readers to support this new publication, both monetarily and through a simple signature. The immediate response was overwhelming. Each and every signature and monetary donation was totally appreciated.

If you haven’t yet responded, please tear out the form on Page 9 and mail it back to PO Box 864, Mahopac, NY 10541. While monetary contributions are urged for the health of this newspaper, we don’t want the monetary request to be the deciding factor for whether you choose to participate in this campaign. Your support with just an address and signature also contributes toward our ability to mail this newspaper. As explained on the opposing page, if more than 50 percent of readers request this newspaper, the U.S. Postal Service will upgrade us to Second Class mail. This status will lower our postage and qualify us for legal notices from the town and county.

The postage savings are necessary to continue this newspaper, so we need everyone to participate with at least Basic Support.

Thank you!

What's in a Name?

I have a short name. One syllable, three letters. Easy to pronounce. My mother chose my name specifically because she did not like names that can be shortened into nicknames. My mother’s name is Sandra. And she was mightily offended whenever anyone called her Sandy. My mom associated the name Sandy with the dog character in the Little Orphan Annie comic strip. Naturally, she was offended ...

You’ll Get a Kick out of Musical Classic ‘Anything Goes’

I’ve loved Broadway musicals since I was smaller than a piano bench. That’s one reason I enjoy writing about local productions in this space. The more people who go to musicals, the happier it makes me.

I didn’t realize how old-fashioned about musicals I could be, though, until my wife Elyse and I at long last saw “Wicked.” It only took us 15 years to get there.

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 ...

Be-bop near the train stop

Last Friday was such a nice day we decided to head down to Tarrytown and take in some jazz in Pierson Park for the Friday Evening Concert Series. If you’re in the mood for it, a little jazz can be just the thing. Much of it is instrumental, so you don’t even have to sing along. Every time I see a rock band these days, they start the song, get to the chorus and then stick the mic out ...
