NORTH SALEM, N.Y.— For the 10th year in a row, North Salem Middle/High School and the Elizabeth G. Butler Angel Foundatation held its annual Art Against Abuse on March 3 at the Hammond Museum.

Donations collected are used for abuse awareness for young women.

In 2005, North Salem High School student Elizabeth Butler was brutally killed by a man she had been dating. Since then, a foundation was created bearing her name with the goal of raising awareness of warning signs of an abusive relationship.

The Elizabeth Butler blood drive will be held at North Salem High School tomorrow (March 24) from 1 to 7 p.m.

Indeed, we ...

Thrifting From the Couch

Now that I am confident that we have turned the corner on winter and the warm weather is here to stay, it is time to commit to that timeless ritual: change of season, change your closet.

I am totally guilty of falling into that trap of loving ...
