MAHOPAC, N.Y.— Incoming kindergartners recently got a taste of what school life will be life when Lakeview, Austin Road and Fulmar Road elementary schools held ice cream socials/orientations to introduce the young students to their teachers. Fulmar Elementary held its ice cream social back in June, while Austin Road and Fulmar Road held theirs last week. The kids were not only treated to ice cream, but they also had a chance to check out the buses and go on a practice bus run.

This residential area is distinctly middle class (and above) and home to numerous families struggling to afford huge rents for the sake of living in a ...

Get Your Gig On

It’s understandable that when people see empty storefronts, they infer it’s the mark of economic malaise. It is not. What’s not taken into account by jumping to that conclusion is that times change, marketplace dynamics change, shopping habits change.

Consumers are spending money, all right, just in different places and in different ways. A storefront that made sense in past ...

One More Doggone Diet

“I caught the dog looking at himself in the full-length mirror today,” I said to my husband. “I think he’s feeling a little self-conscious about his thighs. And he’s worried about putting on weight over the holidays.”

“The dog is worried?” my husband asked.

“Yes, he's noticed that he’s put on a few pounds since Halloween and he ...
