Mahopac Routs Arlington B, Falls to Nyack

Julia Walpole and Mahopac beat Arlington B, but fell to Nyack in the Dick Beams Tournament on April 30.

ARLINGTON, N.Y.— Mahopac’s softball team defeated Arlington B 20-1 in its first game of the annual Dick Beams Tournament on Saturday, April 30.

“We are going in the right direction,” Mahopac coach Brian Hunt said. “We need to continue to improve.”

Third baseman Carly Pease smoked two doubles, pushing home three runners. Juliana DePinho hit an RBI double, and slapped an RBI single. Marissa Burke pelted an RBI double in the rout. Catcher Beth Schum doubled and singled, while driving one run home.

Second baseman Raquel DiVincenzo doubled, singled and walked. Shortstop Kim Astrologo had a base-hit and a double, and walked three times. First baseman Maddy DellaMedaglia scorched a double.

The second round of the tournament was not quite so smooth. The Indian offense was stagnant. They trailed Nyack, 3-0 entering the top of the sixth. It was then that Pease revived Mahopac with a two-run single.

DiVincenzo and Astrologo set the table with a base-hit each to start the inning. Nyack failed again to pad its lead in the bottom of the inning. Copeland made them pay the price by connecting for an RBI double, making extra innings necessary.

The Nyack Indians came out victorious though by the score of 4-3, after a walk-off sacrifice fly in the eighth inning.

Astrologo socked a double in the first inning, but was stranded on base. Schum bonked a base-hit in the sixth. Burke singled and scored a run in addition.

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. 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.

Seen Any Good Ol’ Movies Lately?

As I become more, uh, mature, I find myself enjoying older movies more than newer movies. The trio of films presented here for your consideration are three of my all-time favorites. They share great stories, great screenplays, great directing, great acting. They also have in common ratings in the 90s on Rotten Tomatoes, and a place of distinction in the National Film Registry, a highly selective ...

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 ...

Tipping the Scales in My Favor

As I was settling into bed one night, I happened to catch my husband out of the corner of my eye.

He was getting on the scale.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” I yelled at him. He jerked his head around and looked at me with alarm.

“What? I’m weighing myself.”

I jumped out of bed and yanked him off the scale. 

“You can’t do that now!” I ...

“INCARCERATED hernia?” I repeated.

“What? No.”

“Unlawful entry? Obstruction? Insider trading?” I ...
