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.

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.

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 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 ...
