YORKTOWN, N.Y.-Yorktown was hit with its fourth March nor’easter last Wednesday, casting doubt on the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Downing Park. By Saturday, however, all of the snow had melted and a sunny spring day with temperatures in the mid-40s provided community children with another egg-ceptional hunt.

The event is co-sponsored annually by the Yorktown Lions Club and Yorktown Parks and Recreation Department. The thousands of plastic Easter eggs coating the park were scooped up in a matter of seconds by determined children. Every child collecting an egg received a prize, while several lucky children found “grand prize” eggs, which netted them a basket full of goodies.

July 17, 2018

There’s an old saying, “Our liberty is never safe when the New York State Legislature is in session.” There’s definitely some truth to that. This past legislative session I successfully fought back against several initiatives that would have added to our state’s crushing tax burden, added excessive regulations on businesses that hurt job creation and chipped away at ...

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.
