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.

An 'Air of Hypocrisy' at Town Hall

February 22, 2018

There is an air of hypocrisy blowing over Yorktown and it is coming from town hall. Over the past couple of weeks, I questioned the “temporary” hiring of the Oxman Law Group as legal counsel to Yorktown in a purported “interim” capacity. I have had comments of support and comments questioning my motivation. Rather than have people guess, I would like to be ...

The DACA Dilemma and the Trick of the Trickle-Down Theory

Here is our very own Sen. Charles Schumer on the Senate floor last week: “President Trump has stood in the way of a bipartisan solution to DACA, a problem he created in the first place, and yet the president is in this dream world. He thinks, ‘Oh, I can blame Democrats for the impasse.’ As I said, only in the 1984 world where up is down and black is white could this be true.

A Gold Medal for Jerry

Time advances at a relentless pace. It seems like life moves as though through a movie projector operating at triple speed. As Virgil commented, “It flies never to be regained.” We desperately try to slow its unyielding march by celebrating milestones: birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, weddings, etc. The hope is that we can somehow slow the process, take a breath and enjoy the ...

I Love 'I Hate Hamlet'

Let’s face it, folks. Not everyone loves Shakespeare. Not even all actors. Andrew Rally is one of them. In fact, where there’s a Will, there’s a way Andrew will find to avoid acting in one of those famously timeless plays. And for good reason. Shakespeare tests, to the fullest, an actor’s mettle, and Andrew is strictly a TV actor.

He has just ended a star turn in the ...

I Am Woman, Hair Me Roar

When you have short hair, it is inevitable that you will spend an inordinate amount of time growing your hair out and then getting fed up and cutting it again. I have been down this hair-brained road several dozen times before, complaining for months until I am convinced my husband is going to cut it all off while I sleep just so he doesn’t have to listen to me whine about it one more ...

Should Valentine's Day Be Celebrated at School?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I’ve been a third-grade teacher for over 20 years and have never allowed my students to celebrate Valentine’s Day in my class. I know my colleagues think I’m mean, but I’m refusing to celebrate it for many reasons.

1) Children hand out cards to each other and there’s always some child left out or who gets very few; 2) Children are always asked ...
