Town Board Hears Presentation from Lincoln Hall Officials 

SOMERS, N.Y. - Lincoln Hall and Somers officials are working together to answer any questions – and ease concerns – the community might have about the residential treatment center and shelter for boys.

Global Supply-Chain Disruptions Felt by Local Governments

SOMERS, N.Y. - There may be no end in sight to the supply-chain issues affecting local communities, as wait times lengthen and rising prices strain municipal budgets.

Lincoln Hall Mum on Details by Order of Feds

SOMERS, N.Y. - In 2011, the Somers Middle and Intermediate Schools – which are about 2 miles away from Lincoln Hall – had to be placed on “lockout” after a Lincoln Hall student left campus without permission and was found on Somers school grounds.

But there are a lot of things in life that I struggle to do perfectly, like a perfect house, perfect dinner, perfect dress size and perfect response to every smart aleck remark that comes my ...
