MAHOPAC, N.Y.— School may have just started, but students and staff at Fulmar Road wasted no time in helping victims of the devastating hurricanes that have left so many homeless.

Teachers Andrea Jones and Christine Czuy organized Fulmar’s Charity Walk/Run for Hurricane Relief, which raised more than $3,000 for the Red Cross’s hurricane-relief efforts.

More than 240 of “Fulmar’s finest” joined together on the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 19, including students, administrators, staff and MTA members, to rally for the cause. Each participant was asked to donate $5 to the Red Cross.

“We ran, played a version of freeze tag as well as a caterpillar tag game,” Czuy said. “To finish this beautiful showing of kindness, all of the participants spent a few minutes meditating and sending good thoughts to all those affected by the recent hurricanes,” said Jones.

 School Principal Gary Chadwick said he was impressed with what the staff and students were able to complish.

“Children are often reminded to spread kindness,” he said. “This event showcased the caring of our community—we could not have been more proud.”

Frankly, They Don’t Give a Damn!

He had been talking to another fellow about the recent revelations of sexual harassment by male entertainers, politicians and media personalities, and he was making the point that this type of “alleged” behavior is almost ...

A Sculpted Salute to Sailing and the Hudson

Living in this region, it’s easy to be spoiled and take for granted our proximity to such heaven-sent amenities as the Hudson River. For those of us not active in the environmental movement, it’s all too easy, as well, to lose sight of the harsh reality that this monumental natural resource itself has been spoiled by such unnatural contaminants as PCBs. Fortunately, the damage done to ...

Take Deep, Cleansing Breaths

“Can you tell me what comes with the garlic chicken?” my husband asked the waiter.

“I can tell you,” I said. “Bad breath.”

My husband rolled his eyes at me. We were out to dinner at our usual place and decided the chef must have come into a surplus of garlic, because everything on the specials menu featured garlic. Good for garlic lovers. Not so good for ...

Single People Like Dogs, Too

December 14, 2017

To the editor,

I was pleased to read Steve Reid’s letter to the editor recommending that people adopt a dog from a shelter as opposed to buying a puppy from a puppy mill.  I do agree with him that there are many wonderful dogs available for adoption.  But I’ve experienced and heard many stories about animal shelters not allowing single people or lower income people to ...
