JEFFERSON VALLEY, N.Y. - Dorothea LaScala has been named the grand marshal of the 2017 Yorktown Feast of San Gennaro.

Event organizer Tom Pomposello made the announcement during last night's Circolo da Vinci scholarship award dinner at Ceola Manor in Jefferson Valley. He made the announcement shortly after his organization donated $1,000 to Circolo da Vinci.

Since 1999, LaScala has been a member of Circolo da Vinci, a non-profit organization that promotes Italian-American heritage. She served several terms as president of the organization, which hands out thousands of dollars in scholarships each year to local students.

I Do Not Make Stuff Up!

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote in my column, “Watergate analogies apply to Obama, not Trump,” that President Obama’s Justice Department planted a spy in the Trump campaign.

After the last batter of the game struck out, the pitcher did something unheard of. Rather than spontaneously join his teammates in an on-field celebration, as is customary, the pitcher ...

I Come from the Land Down Under

I know this is a family column, so I’m going to put this in as delicate terms as possible.

This morning I woke up and I knew, as sure as the sun shines over Bora Bora, that something was very, very wrong in that place in my body where the Bora Bora sun doesn’t shine.

It’s that place I used to refer to my daughter as her hoo-hoo. But it certainly wasn’t a happy ...

Andy’s at It Again

June 13, 2018

A couple of years ago, I wrote to question why Andy wasn’t citing his sources when he flings dirt at any Democrat he wants to malign.

Well, he’s at it again. In the latest iteration, he tells us that Obama was responsible for putting a spy in the Trump campaign. He then repeats himself three more times to emphasize his point, but gives no proof or evidence to back up the ...
