MAHOPAC, NY - The Mahopac Volunteer Fire Department’s annual parade and carnival kicked off last week, offering fun, food, and thrills for the whole family.

The parade was held Thursday night and despite threatening skies, the rain stayed away and everything went off without a hitch. The carnival — which features arcade games, rides and plenty of classic fair food like cotton candy and ice cream — followed.

Of course, the fire department volunteers manned their food concession, selling their famous sausage and pepper subs and, for the more culinary adventurous — deep-fried Oreos. This year, the fire department is raffling off a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara, 75th-anniversary edition, and tickets are just $5. The carnival continues this weekend: Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the firehouse on the corner of Route 6 and Croton Falls Road. Festivities get under way at 7 p.m.

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

Immediately after passing the $1.5 trillion tax reform bill last December—further enriching the “one-percenters” and exploding the national debt—House Speaker Paul Ryan spoke to a throng of fellow conservative legislators in the U.S. Capitol rotunda as they congratulated themselves on their dubious achievement. 

“House Republicans will aim to cut spending on ...

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 ...

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 ...
