YORKTOWN, N.Y. - The inaugural Westchester Walk Like MADD event was held Saturday, Oct. 22, at FDR Park in Yorktown. The fundraiser benefits MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), a non-profit organization that strives to end drunk driving and support those affected by drunk driving.

A group of more than 100 community members and educators came out in memory of Frances Ghelarducci, a Somers teaching assistant who was killed last November when a car she was riding in was hit by a suspected drunk driver. Raising almost $10,000, “Forever Fran” was the top fundraising team at the event.

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.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
