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.

Having been a practicing lawyer since 1974, I felt confident about my qualifications for the position of town judge, but being elected to the Town Board was quite ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
