SOMERS, N.Y. - Somers Intermediate School third-graders packed paper plates with turkey, gravy and corn bread for the annual Thanksgiving Feast last Thursday.

In Jennifer Hill’s classroom, students shared what they are thankful for before digging into a buffet of seasonal food. Gratitude was expressed for everything ranging from “delicious turkey” to “planet Earth” to “veterans who died for us.” Teachers also expressed their thanks for the “wonderful class.”

The children wore colorful construction paper headdresses in the style of pilgrims and Indians. Other delicacies served included stuffing, apple cider and cake for dessert.

Time to Crank It Up!

We’ve all heard of the Bully Pulpit. That’s when somebody uses his leverage ...

Closet Case

Not too long ago, if you said you had a room the size of a closet, it meant the space was probably pretty darn small. These days, however, it’s not uncommon to have a closet the size of a living room, with more sliding drawers, revolving racks and custom shoe trees than Barney’s or Bloomies or Kim Kardashian. So nowadays, if you tell someone you have a room the size of a closet, the ...
