HUNTER, N.Y.— Somers had two girls earn a spot among the top 50 girls skiers to compete at the Section 1 ski championships last Wednesday, Feb. 15, at Hunter Mountain.

Tuskers’ Natalie Flood and Caitlyn Lucadamo earned a spot on the mountain and made the most of the opportunity. Flood just missed out on a spot with the Section 1 ski team that will compete at the New York State championships as she is the first alternate on the Section 1 team. Flood finished fifth in the giant slalom combined as she completed two runs in 31.37 and 30.99. Her best time in the slalom of 37.27 was good enough for 12th, but she didn’t complete her second run and that knocked her out of the skimeister standings. Her best run times of 30.99 in giant slalom and 37.27 in slalom put her in ninth place overall for the standings to determine the state team as the first alternate.

Lucadamo was able to complete all four of her runs as she was 24th in giant slalom with times of 42.41 and 41.92. She was also 24th in slalom with times of 34.0 and 32.89.

Birthdays are Awesome Gifts

I celebrated my birthday last week, surrounded by the love of family: What a joyful occasion. I’ve thought about past celebrations and how tremendous it was to be remembered and loved. One such birthday was a real hoot.

As you know, my mother’s birthday also was in May. Years ago, we were having family over to celebrate her day; because of busy calendars, the party was scheduled ...

A Royal Foil

Because of my deadline, I’m writing this before the fact, but I never received my invitation to the royal nuptials last Saturday. Not even ONE invitation. Nothing. I was camped out at the mailbox all week, and even had a tip for the mailman, and also one from Christmas, which must have gotten lost in the mail. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle didn’t announce the guest list, but ...


Once upon a time, before computers and texting and email and Facebook, we had telephones with dials. They spun around and connected us with the live voice of whomever we were calling. That’s what telephones were used for: talking to other people. They had an ear piece and a mouth piece and we made what was known as “conversation.”

Today we have layers. If we use phones ...

She had file envy

Who says paperwork is not sexy?! This week, I was so impressed (and even charmed) by the paperwork and systems of two different women. I was even a little envious. In the first case, my client Lois in Ardsley decided that it was time to get her paperwork in order. After six years of shifting paperwork, a dysfunctional home office, an international move and the purchase of a new home, she had HAD ...

BOCES… What’s in a Name?

Do you ever wonder what BOCES stands for? We associate the name with a center of learning that supplements the general curriculum of local high schools by teaching students specialized trades. Beyond that, does everyone in the non-BOCES population, those who have no direct connection to the programs, fully appreciate the priceless value it brings to our communities’ young adults and their ...

Dog Allergies, Part Deux

“I have some good news and I have some bad news,” I told my husband.

“Give me the good news first.”

“OK. The vet doesn’t think the dog’s ear infections are from a food allergy after all, so we don’t have to keep feeding him that hypo-allergenic food,” I said.

“Hallelujah,” shouted my husband. He was understandably ...
