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.”

America's Pizza Crisis

To me, pizza is the perfect food.

It contains all your major food groups: dairy, vegetables, bread and meat. It needs no alterations, no improvements, no changes. It is perfect in its pristine, glorious incarnation—unless you are in Chicago. I don’t know what the hell that thing is.

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

A (Burnt) Toast to Love and Marriage, on the Rocks

In its first few moments, sitcom-style comedy “Clever Little Lies” grabs audience attention right away, with one of the most revealing wardrobe changes you’ll ever see on stage. It is done modestly but just provocatively enough to elicit vocal appreciation from amused patrons.

The fast-paced play, starring Richard Kline of TV comedy classic “Three’s ...

A Snowflake for All Seasons

My name is Bruce and I’m a snowflake.

It’s quite the burden to bear.

I trace it to my childhood.

I don’t know what my parents were thinking.

They had a crazy notion to bring me up to not reflexively dislike other people.

So, I don’t know any better.

I don’t begrudge anybody what they have or what they don’t have.

That’s not true.

I ...

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 ...

Monty, the Magnificent

Not to brag, but our dog Monty is pedigree royalty. Yes, he’s like the Prince of Pooches, the Duke of Doggies, the King of Canines… well, you get the idea.

Monty comes from a long line of Retriever blueblood. His mother, father, aunts, uncles, sisters and brothers are all champion show dogs with enough medals and ribbons to make Lassie woof with envy. While his lineage is ...
