MAHOPAC, N.Y. - The Town of Carmel Recreation and Parks Department held its first-ever Music Festival at the Mahopac Chamber Park Saturday, May 20—something it hopes will become an annual event. The free concert featured five local bands of various ages and genres, including the acoustic duo Pickpocket Romance and Mahopac resident and rising star Amanda Ayala and her band The Midnight Glory.

There was also free cotton candy, popcorn and a bouncy house for the kids. The four-hour show was well-attended as residents took advantage of the mild temperatures and sunny skies to spread blankets and enjoy picnic baskets and pizza.

I’m the south to their north—a polar opposite. I need double that amount of sleep. I’ve always assumed—or maybe once was told—that it is due to my slow metabolism. Or maybe I’m just boringly normal ...

Don’t Call Me... I’ll Call You

“Hello, hello,” I said, picking up the phone when I saw my husband’s number come up on my Caller ID.

Nothing.

“Hellllloooooooooo?” I said louder.

“Can I have a tall, decaf, skim mocha Frappucino,” I heard my husband say. It sounded like he wasn’t talking directly into his phone, but rather from a galaxy far, far ...
