Athletes from all over the region converged upon Mahopac Saturday, Sept. 17, to raise money for a cause. 

The event was the “TYathlon” – which combined swimming, running, and biking into a grueling competition. More than $46,000 was raised for the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation, a nonprofit organization that funds research and clinical trials specifically geared toward the treatment of the deadliest childhood cancers. 

The competition kicked off at 7 a.m. with a quarter-mile swim in Lake Mahopac, followed a 10.1-mile bike race, and then a run that was just shy of 5K.

The Ty Louis Campbell Foundtion seeks less toxic, more effective treatments that are specifically designed for children fighting cancer. Its ultimate mission is to help fund the intelligence and technology that will uncover new ways to cure children with cancer.

The top three TYathlon finishers this year were John Hirsch, Yorktown, first place; Sean Dillo, Fishkill, second place; and Mahopac’s Jacob Kayler, third place.

You’ll Get a Kick out of Musical Classic ‘Anything Goes’

I’ve loved Broadway musicals since I was smaller than a piano bench. That’s one reason I enjoy writing about local productions in this space. The more people who go to musicals, the happier it makes me.

I didn’t realize how old-fashioned about musicals I could be, though, until my wife Elyse and I at long last saw “Wicked.” It only took us 15 years to get there.

A (Burnt) Toast to Love and Marriage, on the Rocks

In its first few moments, sitcom-style comedy “Clever Little Lies” grabs audience attention right away, with one of the most revealing wardrobe changes you’ll ever see on stage. It is done modestly but just provocatively enough to elicit vocal appreciation from amused patrons.

The fast-paced play, starring Richard Kline of TV comedy classic “Three’s ...

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. 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.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
