MAHOPAC, N.Y.-Mahopac’s boys basketball team had a golden opportunity last Thursday. The Indians were set to lock horns with Arlington in a battle for the league title, and the showdown was in Mahopac.

The home team led for most of the game. But the Admirals surged back in the fourth quarter to take a late lead, and held on to break the Indians’ hearts, 61-57.

Mahopac led 16-9 after one, 33-22 at the break and 41-36 at the end of three.

But with Mahopac clinging to a precarious lead in the fourth, it was an Arlington steal and score that tied the game at 48-48. The visitors took their first lead of the evening, 52-50, with 1:54 left in the game, on a pair of Reuben Greene free throws.

An impatient Mahopac put up a fast shot at the other end, but it didn’t fall and the Admirals cashed in again with a Nico Bosser three that put the Admirals up by five.

Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

Not true! Since April 2017, Amazon has collected sales taxes in all states that levy ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
