MAHOPAC, N.Y. - Mother Nature cooperated Sunday as the sun shone brightly in Mahopac and hundreds of residents poured into the business district along South Lake Boulevard for the 15th annual Street Fair. The fair is administered by the Greater Mahopac-Carmel Chamber of Commerce and an eclectic blend of vendors and businesses lined the sidewalks to promote their wares and services. There was plenty for the kids to do as well, including rides and games, face painting and visits with cartoon characters. Of course, there was plenty of delicious food on hand provided by area restaurants.

Check out our photos from the event...

Turn On the Light and Watch the Roaches Flee

When I lived in Los Angeles, I was a senior editor for a magazine called Pool & Spa News. It was the leading trade magazine in North America for the swimming pool and hot tub industry. It was a fun and fascinating job—and I learned a lot.

One of the many things I learned was about how pools are sanitized. (There are more ways than you think.) As most know, chlorine is the first line ...

Cigarettes, Drugs and Border Patrol

This is from the website Rare: “Seattle has decided to impose a 1.75 cent per ounce tax on all sugary beverages within the city with the hopes of raising a $15 million revenue stream that it will use for programs to help people ‘have better access to fresh fruits and vegetables,’ as Seattle station KIRO 7 explains. The price of Gatorade Frost Variety Pack at Costco, usually ...

Who Really Killed Eric Garner?*

Last week, Erica Garner died.* She was the daughter of Eric Garner, who died while resisting arrest for selling individual cigarettes, otherwise known as “loosies.”* Most news stories about her death begin this way: “Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner, who died from a police choke-hold screaming ‘I can’t breath...’ ”* This event lead Erica to become an ...

A Loudmouth Remains Conspicuously Silent

I’ve been side by side with Andy Bazzo on this page for more than three years now and, other than a minor skirmish back in 2015, we’ve tolerated each other’s political views and avoided personal criticism. However, recently, several readers of my column have questioned why I haven’t confronted Bazzo’s rhetoric more fervently, especially when his bombast is so filled ...

Breakfast with Rocco

I went into a neighborhood eatery the other day to grab some breakfast with one of my politically aware buddies, Rocco. It was crowded and we happened to sit right next to a couple of young tradesmen—a carpenter and an electrician—who were talking politics and worrying out loud about the new Republican tax bill; was it going to help or hurt them? As we waited for the waitress to take ...

Talkin' 'Bout Our Generations

People try to put us d-down (Talkin’ ’bout my generation)

Just because we get around (Talkin’ ’bout my generation)

Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin’ ’bout my generation)

I hope I die before I get old (Talkin’ ’bout my generation)

—Peter Townshend (The Who)

I’ve become obsessed of late with generations. Well, what ...

A Post-Apocalyptic House Cleaning

I’m usually pretty good about keeping track of what’s in my fridge. But over the course of a few weeks, the food containers seem to multiply and take over. By the time I get around to realizing that some items have been in there too long, the contents of the containers way in the back of the refrigerator either look like a science experiment gone awry or a refrigerated toupee.

This ...

Speak Softly and Carry a Big Grudge

Contrary to what I generally tell people, the happiest moment of my life was not the day I got married, nor the final push when I gave birth to either of my two kids. It was the day a driver tailgated me relentlessly for five miles and then sped away… until he got pulled over by a state trooper.

Although I know it is better to forgive and forget, I am just not one of those people who is ...

Reminiscing About the Old Times

January 11, 2018

To the editor,

Regarding the closing of Healy’s Corner Bar, before it was Healy’s, it was Happy Valley. Actually, the whole county was a “Happy Valley” in those times (if maybe a little ingrown, prejudicial enclave, but there was community). I went to a wedding reception there in the Fifties.

The Hide-a-Way, a nice restaurant/bar on Baldwin Place Road, just north of ...
