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.

So, it appears our small community was thrust into the spotlight earlier this month in a most unexpected way.

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 ...

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.
