Protecting Yorktown's Wetlands

April 12, 2017

Here we go again: Having gutted the law protecting Yorktown’s trees and woodlands, the Yorktown Town Board has set its sights on another environmental protection law, our Freshwater Wetlands Law.

Why do we want to save, and even increase, wetlands in Yorktown? Experience shows that wetland reduction results in more frequent and severe flooding, erosion and subsequent property damage.

Thank God, Baseball Is Back

As was said in the greatest baseball movie ever made, “Field of Dreams” (go ahead, name another), “With all the turmoil in the world, the one constant has been baseball.” (I am paraphrasing.)

Think about it. Since the late 1800s, we have had depressions, wars and riots, yet, come April, baseball was there to let us know all’s right with the world and everything is ...

Where am I?

A man goes to see his doctor for the results of his tests. The doctor says, “I am sorry to have to tell you that you have cancer and you have Alzheimer’s.” The man thinks for a moment and then replies, “Well at least I don’t have cancer.”

I told that joke for many years but I don’t tell it anymore. There is nothing funny about Alzheimer’s.

Unmasking Ancient Myths

It’s safe to say that dedicated theater-goers wouldn’t mind seeing more richly themed dramatic offerings like the Schoolhouse Theater’s beguiling production of “The Mask of the Jaguar King.”

Described by the producers as “Part battle of angels, part ghost story, part ritual dance, using indigenous and original sound landscapes with live music,” it is ...

Nothing Comes Between Me and My Lava Cake

When it comes to desserts, there are three kinds of people: sugary-dessert people, fruit-dessert people and no-dessert people. I’m a sugary-dessert person, and like most sugary dessert people, I don’t get the other kinds of dessert people at all. I can almost understand no-dessert people. But fruit-dessert people? Fruit as a dessert seems like a completely wasted opportunity. If a ...

Avoiding the Anxiety of Taking Tests

Dear Dr. Linda,

I’m in my 20s and have decided to go to college. I got into a local four-year college and I’m starting this summer. My parents are thrilled because I’m the first in my family to go to college. I’m also happy about it, but I’m really scared. The reason I didn’t go in the first place was that high school was really hard for me. My biggest ...

Ditching Free Speech

April 19, 2017

Once again, Mr. Jim Martorano, in “The Abandonment of Truth and Science” (April 6), uses the faulty, illogical debating technique—the strawman. He spends paragraph after paragraph denouncing Alex Jones and then denounces Trump as though he were Alex Jones. Trump isn’t Alex Jones.

But more astonishing are his elitist views on free speech and press. Martorano’s ...
