YORKTOWN, N.Y. - The Yorktown Police Department and the 12U Yorktown Warriors squared off Sunday in a charity baseball game at Navajo Fields.

Money was raised to send Yorktown children to Camp Sunshine, a Casco, Maine, facility that provides a year-round retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. The fundraiser was organized by Sergio Esposito and Dr. Rodd Stein.

Esposito said it costs about $2,500 to send one child and their family to the camp for a week. All money raised at the game will be donated directly to Camp Sunshine and earmarked for Yorktown children. Candidates will be chosen through local hospitals.

Before the first pitch, Esposito said enough money had been raised to send one child to the camp, thanks in part to a $1,000 donation by George Lucciola of State Farm in Yorktown.

At the end of the day, $3,915 was raised. Esposito is hoping to reach the $5,000 mark. Additional donations can be made at gofundme.com/yorktownforcampsun.

State Sen. Terrence Murphy coached the Warriors while Supervisor Michael Grace coached the officers. The Warriors won the game 8 to 7.

Sponsors and donors included Rita’s Italian Ice, Wayback Burgers, Turco’s, Put Some Meat on Your Bones, Little Sorrento and Navajo Fields.

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

The Best of the Best: Albert Capellini

In the spring of 1991, after answering an ad for a judicial race placed in the local Yorktown paper, I was talked into the unenviable position of running for Yorktown councilman as a Democrat in our then solidly Republican town.

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 ...

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks. And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...
