BRONX, N.Y. – Kennedy Catholic began its defense of its CHSAA Class ‘A’ title in impressive fashion with a 74-59 victory over St. Joseph’s by the Sea in a quarterfinal match-up at Mount St. Michael on Feb. 27.

St. Joe’s stayed with the Gaels for most of the first half but after an 8-2 run with less than two minutes left Kennedy headed into the break with a 40-34 lead and never looked back.

Junior forward Malachi de Sousa had a season-high 29 points to lead Kennedy to their 16th win in a row while senior center Kevin Buron added 17 points.

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.
