YORKTOWN, N.Y.-Lauren McAulay may be in just her first year as head coach for the Yorktown girls lacrosse squad but experience wise she is a veteran of the game.

McAulay spent the last three seasons as Yorktown’s assistant coach to Hudson Valley Lacrosse Hall of Fame member Ellen Mager and learned a lot.

“Ellen exuded confidence and determination both on and off the field, which is something I have always admired,” McAulay said. “Her quick thinking and ability to analyze each strategic play, while keeping in mind the strengths of each player really speak to her success as a coach. She took the time to take me under her wing and provide me with significant knowledge and resources to help me to develop my own coaching style. I am confident that with the skills Ellen helped me to refine, combined with my previous experience and passion for lacrosse, I am ready to take over this program.”

McAulay has both a long and short-term vision for the program.

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 ...
