Not All Dog Owners Are Created Equal


Boo-hoo. Mr. Bazzo had to pay for a dog park that he does not use. Well, I have had to pay school taxes for schools that I have never used year after year after year—a little more costly than a dog park.

Why are you lumping all dog owners into one category? Not all dog owners cared if there was a dog park or not. Not all dog owners want to use the dog park. In this crazy world, I am happy for those who wanted it and use it. It is their choice; not yours, not mine.  

What drives me insane are outrageous comments. I have been walking my dog at the track twice a day for more than eight years. I have never seen dogs urinate on the benches or all over the field, nor have I ever (even in the heat of summer) smelled the odor of dog urine. A little rain or snow and it is gone, whether it is dog urine, geese urine, seagull urine or any other animal that my urinates all over the field. There are so many other comments I can make, but I am tired.

I enjoy walking my dog, Laci, who is part of my family. Contrary to what some may believe that a dog or a cat is not part of the family, Laci is part of my family. The track is close to my home and a good place to exercise both my dog and myself.

One more note: Mr. Romanski of the YYSC would rather see dogs take their business elsewhere as was stated in a previous article. “I am an insurance broker. I should not have to pick up dog poop on Saturday and Sunday mornings unless the town wants to pay me.” I guess it is all right with Mr. Romanski if our dog poops as long as he gets paid. I envision him with a little pail and shovel walking around the field picking up all the poop he can find. Are you asking the town to pay you by the pound or by the pail full? I wouldn’t quit your day job if I were you.

In conclusion, I will see all you responsible dog walkers at the track.

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.

Cambridge Analytica used Facebook ...

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 ...
