A Hidden Tax Increase

May 17, 2017

When will Supervisor Michael Grace let 4,450 taxpayers in Yorktown’s Hallocks Mill Sewer District know that he plans to increase their taxes?

When will he give the 4,000 already sewered homeowners in the district an opportunity to ask why he wants them to pay for someone else’s sewers?

And when will he be more open, frank and honest about what sewers will cost the 450 homeowners ...

Democrat Hysteria on Parade

Before talk about the update on the proposed Republican replacement of Obamacare, let me say this about last week’s firing of FBI Director James Comey: Within hours of the firing, the Democrats and their sycophants in the media were telling us this was Nixionian, tantamount to another “Saturday Night Massacre.” Look at the timing. If Trump wanted to fire Comey, he could have ...

An Untrained Mind

Now that we’re into May, I thought it appropriate to ask the question: how is the new administration occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. doing? For answers, I looked to three people whose opinions I value greatly.

Dr. Barbara Perry is the director of presidential studies at the Miller Center at the University of Virginia. She has spent her entire adult life studying our presidents and it is ...

Stats All, Folks!

When I was publisher of a local weekly newspaper, much like this one, I had a stock response for the occasional reader who would accuse our reporters or our news coverage of bias: “You’re right,” I would say. “There is bias in the media, because every single person brings his or her own bias to every story.” It’s human nature that different people react ...

Only the Nose Knows

Superman is able to see through walls.

Spiderman can detect things with his spider-sense.

Me? I can smell something in the next county. Yes, it’s true. I am Super Smell Woman (not to be confused with the significantly less appealing, Super Smelly Woman). I can detect unseen mold under a bathtub mat. I can sniff out spoiled milk from behind refrigerator doors. I am Super Smell Woman; ...

Beyond Acquiring Knowledge

Dear Dr. Linda,

At our last teacher’s conference, our daughter’s teacher told my husband and me that she includes metacognition in her lessons. To be honest, neither one of us had ever heard of that word, so we said nothing. We didn’t want her to know that we didn’t know what she was talking about.

As soon as we got in the car we pulled out our phones and looked up ...

How About Peace?

May 17, 2017

“He sent a message,” Andy Bazzo claims in “Thank God, Baseball Is Back,” Coulter, Savage and others are going down the wrong path in criticizing Trump’s bombing of Syria. No, Andy, they are pro-peace. And the opposite is one who is pro war (i.e. a warmonger).

Have our interventionist policies (bombing) in Afghanistan, Syria, Somalia, Iraq, Yemen, Libya and ...

First Presbyterian Church of Yorktown Food Pantry Moves to 'Full Choice' Model

May 15, 2017

In April, the First Presbyterian Church of Yorktown Food Pantry made the transition from “Partial Choice” (where a client received pre-packed bags of a nutritionally balanced mix of non-perishable foods, and then chose from selections of meat, bread and produce) to “Full Choice.”  With Full Choice, a client can choose food items from shelves, as they would in a ...
