SOMERS, N.Y. - Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, located in the historic Bailey House in Somers, brought back its traditional summer community barbeque in late June. 

This year, it served not only as an opportunity to greet neighbors and friends, but also as a fundraiser for its Relay for Life team, “Angie’s Angels.” It was estimated that more than 100 people attended, with guests donating $5. Combined with other efforts, Angie’s Angels raised $2,641 for the American Cancer Society. 

In addition to Coldwell Banker, event sponsors included Pro National Title Agency, Coldwell Banker Loans, Estate Inspections Group, JT Homes Inspections, and attorneys Richard Gennett and Joseph Scutieri.

“This was my first Somers barbeque and certainly will not be the last,” Benkwitt said. “We can’t wait to do it again next year!”

Stranger Than Paradise

I don’t want to sound like I’m gloating, but while you were wondering when your power was going to return, I was gallivanting off to the beach in the Dominican Republic. Right now I don’t want to make light of a situation where people have no lights. But I heard there was a bombogenesis coming and that Phil Collins wasn’t touring with it, so I hightailed it out of there.

The March Wind Doth Blow

Thanks to New York State Electric & Gas and Mother Nature, I spent last week in New Jersey at my daughter Lisa’s home. Her sister and brother-in-law, Ilene and Curtis, drove me there on Saturday, then went back to Somers on Sunday, March 4.

Although I dislike talking about my health, the main reason I was in New Jersey is because I sometimes use oxygen and the machine needs ...

Ready for the Next Storm?

“Ladies and gentlemen, there is another storm in the forecast.” At this point, the weather people are as welcome as the grim reaper! Here in the Northeast, we are battle-weary from these major winter storms. Right now, I’d rather be talking about tulips and jelly beans, but it’s still winter and the best way to not lose our minds is to be prepared for the next ...

Read Across America With Dr. Seuss

Dear Dr. Linda,

I’m a school librarian and I wanted to remind your readers that March 2 was “Read Across America Day.”  Teachers, librarians and others who read with children encourage schools, libraries and parents to celebrate this day with their children. This special date was chosen because it is the birthday of Dr. Seuss, the adored children’s author. That ...

To Harrison, L'Chaim!

At long last, the smile of spring approaches, as an angry winter recedes into good riddance. Our spirit is ready to be re-charged. Damn the power outages, full speed ahead!

For my wife, Elyse, daughter, Elissa, and me, this otherwise exuberant time of year brings a confusion of mixed emotions. In 2003, on the opening day of spring, March 20, which happens to be my birthday, our 15-year-old son ...

When It's Not OK to Ask If Everything's OK

There is this thing that I do that annoys the heck out of my family. Well, to be honest, there are a lot of things I do that annoy the heck out of my family, but I am thinking of one thing in particular.

Whenever someone is in the bathroom for what I determine to be an abnormally long period of time, I stand outside the bathroom door and yell,

Lacking Leadership, Town Struggles Through Another Series of Outages

March 14, 2018

I just gained power today, and because we have a whole house generator I was able to offer showers to residents of Heritage Hills. What got to me is that for them to seek showers at this time in their lives is terrible. Even more so because much of this could have been prevented, or at the very least, reduced in impact.

We can blame the utilities for a double whammy here, increased rates and ...
