MAHOPAC, N.Y. - The annual Putnam County Columbus Day parade went off without a hitch on Sunday, Oct. 1, as Mother Nature cooperated this year with warm temperatures and sunny skies. Last year, inclement weather resulted in the parade’s cancellation, the first time in the event’s history that that has happened.

But this year, hundreds of people lined Route 6 to watch the parade, which was sponsored by Mahopac’s Italian American Club and led by Boy Scout Troop 1. The parade featured marching bands, Scottish bagpipers, a float with Miss Columbus, fire trucks, elected officials, cheerleaders and more. 

This year’s grand marshal was Nicola Trombetta, president of the Regione Campana Association. He was joined in the parade by honorary marshals Tom Phelan and Giulio Rinaldi, along with dozens of millennials who were recognized as special honorees for their commitment to the community.

The event corresponded with Mahopac’s annual Street Fair which was held in the business district on South Lake Boulevard (Route 6N).

But like any good meal, the key to stellar pizza is the recipe and the quality of the ...

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 ...
