Powered by two four-run innings featuring back-to-back homers by Gilchrist and Major, North Salem defeated the Mount Kisco Chiefs 10-6 Tuesday evening, July 19, in an 11U contest. The strong pitching of Schoenberg and Eberhardt held the Chiefs in check.

After Mt. Kisco scored four unearned runs in the top of the third to take a two-run lead, the Tigers erupted for four of their own in the bottom of the inning, highlighted by blasts over the left-field fence by Gilchrist and Major. When the Chiefs tied the game with two more in the next inning, North Salem answered with four more in their half, with Baer and Viebrock each collecting two RBI to complete the scoring.

Viebrock led the way with three RBI, Gilchrist and Baer had two apiece, and Major and Weigle each had one. Schoenberg pitched an effective first four innings, giving up no earned runs while fanning six. Eberhardt needed only 18 pitches to record the final six outs and seal the victory for the Tigers.

The Tigers enter the playoffs as the top seed and finished the regular season with a 13-2 record.

Winter Is Fleeting

By some alchemy, winter is flying by us this year. Faster and faster every year of our lives. We’re nearly two-thirds done with the season already. There’s just a month and a few extra days left to withstand. A snap of the fingers and it will be gone. Finished. Another winter to enter into our personal annals, in which we thrived or merely survived.

Let's Eliminate the Electoral College

Why do we have the Electoral College? It is certainly not a college and it doesn’t educate any one. Yet it certainly can elect a president of the United States.

That’s what happened in 2016 when a small majority of the electoral votes elected Donald J. Trump president of the United States. Mr. Trump was not selected by the majority of the people of our country. The majority of ...

Taking Baby Steps


OK, we’re a month into the New Year and not only have I NOT lost weight, but I’ve put back on the three pounds I lost four weeks ago! Many people would be discouraged and throw in the towel at this point, but I would encourage you to reboot your program and start again, every morning if necessary. Losing weight, saving money or getting organized are about mindset.

First, ...

A Trip to the 'Liberry'

Raise your hand if you didn’t—did not—call the library the “liberry” when you were little. I’m guessing not a lot of hands just went up.

Didn’t just about all of us say “liberry” when we were learning to read? (Well, whaddya expect when a place is named something way too easy for little kids to mispronounce?)

OK. Now, raise your hand if ...

Peekskill AIMs to Become a 'Mediapolis'

What could the city of Peekskill possibly have in common with Silicon Valley, Hollywood and New York City? Like those familiar centers of multimedia creativity and commerce, the historic river town is downright giddy with excitement about transforming itself into a mediapolis, to coin a phrase.

Thanks to local movers and shakers, led by prominent Peekskill businessman Ben Green, the ...

I'm Mrs. Heat Miser

To be perfectly honest, I did not need a large rodent with insomnia to convince me that we had six more weeks of winter. It’s been so cold outside lately that when I go out, my nostrils stick together. The dog is so hesitant to go out that he does his business right on the deck, less than five feet from the door, and then gives me a look of contemptuous indignation when he comes back in the ...

Getting Off on the Wrong Foot

“What happened to your ankle?” asked my neighbor when he saw the orthopedic boot on my right foot.

“I tripped while I was in Pamplona running with the bulls,” I told him.

He raised his eyebrows. “Really?”

“No. Not really,” I admitted. “I was actually climbing Machu Picchu and I fell over a llama.”

“Seriously?” he ...

'Bravo' to Column on Trump

February 15, 2018

To the editor,

I am responding to guest columnist Sy Globerman’s article, “Trump is revivifying America” in the Thursday, Feb. 8 edition of your newspaper.

Mr. Globerman is right on target. Bravo to him for stating the facts about President Trump. All we seem to read and hear from the media is Trump bashing.

Therefore, it’s quite refreshing to read about ...
