MAHOPAC, N.Y.-It’s usually a close competition when Mahopac and Clarkstown square off in gymnastics and last Friday was no different.

Clarkstown edged host Mahopac 170.2-168.85 at Lakeview Elementary School.

“Another close competition and we fell a little short,” Mahopac coach Vin Collins said. “Some real solid floor routines today even with a couple of falls. We are still improving every meet and that’s what we are looking for.”

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

The Adventures of Superdog

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.
