MAHOPAC, N.Y. - The Friday Night Barbecue Concert Series at the Putnam County Golf Course hit its peak last Friday (Aug. 25) with its annual clam bake and a performance by Class Action, a classic rock ensemble featuring local attorneys. The event drew a packed house that enjoyed not just the traditional barbecue of ribs and brisket, burgers and dogs, but plenty of seafood as well. Mahopac High rockers, Absolute Zero, served as the opening act.

There are still plenty of Friday Night Barbecue shows left on the events calendar: Sept. 8 features The Mix; Sept. 15 has Andrea and the Armenian Rug Riders; Sept. 22 is the Last Rites Band, and Sept. 29 features Thrown Together. All shows are rain or shine. Tickets are $25 in advance; $29 at the door. Shows include live music, all-you-can-eat barbecue and a cash bar. Tickets can be purchased at www.putnamcountygolfcourse.com/events.

This was the rejection of Donald Trump personally, and this was the rejection of Donald Trump’s policies. This was a full-fledged and total rejection of Donald Trump.”

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 ...

To the editor,
It is a dirty job, but someone has to do it! 

Yes, we are talking about all the litter on the sides of the roads in Somers. Litter clean-up is a never-ending job, but thanks to the dedicated residents and businesses of Somers, the task gets easier and easier each year.

The Somers Litter Task Force would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to all Somers ...
