A Statement on Sexual Harassment

October 12, 2018

In the light of recent events occurring in our country, namely the approval toward confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States, I am compelled to speak up and speak out. I believe part of the reason I earned my position on our Town Board is because I promised I would do my part on a local level to not only protect our rights with vigilance, but to maintain and build ...

Road Trip

Driving west on Route 35, the colorful fall leaves reminded me of a road trip I took with my mom to Eastern Tennessee. In the mid-1990s, I made several trips to Eastern Tennessee to explore the possibility of relocating there. The topography is similar to Northern Westchester: rolling hills, trees, small towns, plus cows grazing in the grassy fields.

At 100, the Doctor Is in… Great Shape!


When Dr. Mack Scharmett was 50 years old, gas was 34 cents a gallon. An average car cost $3,000.

Another fact, SUNY campuses have ...

Like a Kid in a Candy Store

The Faire-est of them all

Last Sunday your faithful travel correspondent (that’s me) took a ride to the town of Tuxedo to check out the New York Renaissance Faire. We had never been up there, and had no idea what to expect. The Faire is a bit of a mish-mosh of all kinds of fantasy and reality, but I had already temporarily suspended all belief back in the parking lot, where I took it on faith that I would be able to ...
