YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Hilltop Hanover Farm of Yorktown Heights is participating in “Giving Tuesday” on Tuesday, Nov. 29. The farm’s goal is to raise $5,000 to allow underprivileged children to visit the farm with their schools.

Last year, over 2,500 students visited Hilltop Hanover Farm. When possible, the farm’s staff works with the schools regarding cost. However, Hilltop Hanover Farm cannot afford to subsidize all schools. That’s where “Giving Tuesday” comes into play.

The goal of “Giving Tuesday/NYGivesDay” is to create a global day of giving, which celebrates generosity and kindness. The day itself falls on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving—this year it’s Tuesday, Nov. 29.

You’ll Get a Kick out of Musical Classic ‘Anything Goes’

I’ve loved Broadway musicals since I was smaller than a piano bench. That’s one reason I enjoy writing about local productions in this space. The more people who go to musicals, the happier it makes me.

I didn’t realize how old-fashioned about musicals I could be, though, until my wife Elyse and I at long last saw “Wicked.” It only took us 15 years to get there.

Loose Ends

Real life is not the movies.

Things are not wrapped up in a neat bow, motivations are not explained, and things often don’t make sense.

Two weeks ago, a man driving “triple digits” in a Dodge Charger exited the Taconic State Parkway at Underhill Avenue, blew through a stop sign, and t-boned an SUV, injuring a mother and her 19-year-old daughter. Here is ...

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...

If You See Something, Say Something

July 11, 2018

I am writing this letter because I see something different with the new Yorktown Town Board. I see an open government instead of a dictatorship with rubber stamps. I see the new Town Board working together for the best interests of the residents in Yorktown.

The auditor suggests in his report to not start a capital project without having the money first. A bad example is the Granite Knolls ...
