MAHOPAC, N.Y.— School may have just started, but students and staff at Fulmar Road wasted no time in helping victims of the devastating hurricanes that have left so many homeless.

Teachers Andrea Jones and Christine Czuy organized Fulmar’s Charity Walk/Run for Hurricane Relief, which raised more than $3,000 for the Red Cross’s hurricane-relief efforts.

More than 240 of “Fulmar’s finest” joined together on the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 19, including students, administrators, staff and MTA members, to rally for the cause. Each participant was asked to donate $5 to the Red Cross.

“We ran, played a version of freeze tag as well as a caterpillar tag game,” Czuy said. “To finish this beautiful showing of kindness, all of the participants spent a few minutes meditating and sending good thoughts to all those affected by the recent hurricanes,” said Jones.

 School Principal Gary Chadwick said he was impressed with what the staff and students were able to complish.

“Children are often reminded to spread kindness,” he said. “This event showcased the caring of our community—we could not have been more proud.”

The Meaning of the Election Results

There are no national implications from last Tuesday’s election results. Yet, there was our very own senator, Chuck Schumer, saying, “This was a profound election result. 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.” 

What else is he gonna say? ...

Scared? You Should Be!

The week before Halloween, I went with four of my grandchildren (and a couple of my daughters) to a crowded costume party held at Asphalt Green, a giant soccer field located a few blocks north of Gracie Mansion, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. This residential area is distinctly middle class (and above) and home to numerous families struggling to afford huge rents for the sake of living in a ...

Get Your Gig On

It’s understandable that when people see empty storefronts, they infer it’s the mark of economic malaise. It is not. What’s not taken into account by jumping to that conclusion is that times change, marketplace dynamics change, shopping habits change.

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 ...
