MAHOPAC, N.Y.— The Mahopac High Drama Company will present a performance of the comedic 1938 play “You Can’t Take it With You,” Thursday, Oct. 20; Friday, Oct. 21; and Saturday, Oct. 22. Curtain each night is at 7 p.m.

This is the story of sweet-natured Alice Sycamore, who falls for banker’s son Tony Kirby. But when she invites her snooty prospective in-laws to dinner to give their blessing to the marriage, Alice’s peculiar extended family, including philosophical grandfather, hapless fledgling ballerina sister, Essie, and fireworks enthusiast father, Paul, might be too eccentric for the staid Kirbys.

The MHS Drama Company has been working very hard to put on this production for everyone to enjoy. The public is invited to come to the Mahopac High School Auditorium for a night of laughter. Tickets are $10.

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.

Trump Dumps on Amazon; I Dump on Trump

President Trump attacked the online retail giant Amazon earlier this month, accusing the behemoth corporation of paying “little or no taxes to state and local governments,” and taking advantage of the United States Postal Service and “causing tremendous loss to the U.S.”  

Not true! Since April 2017, Amazon has collected sales taxes in all states that levy ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

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 ...
