YORKTOWN, N.Y. - The fifth annual “East Coast Cruzers Car Show” was held in Yorktown on Sunday, Sept. 25, and funds raised were donated to cancer research.

About 85-100 cars and motorcycles were entered into the show, said Lou Russo, of East Coast Auto Sales & Storage, which hosted the show at its 1401 Front St. shop. All money raised through entry fees and a 50/50 raffle was donated to the MPN Research Foundation, which researches treatments for myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN). Russo’s sister, Roseann, is currently battling the rare form of blood cancer, for which there is no cure.

At the show, the Dr. Johnny Fever Band provided live entertainment throughout the day. Food was provided by Yorktown’s own Destination Bistro.

Assemblyman Kevin Byrne Looks Back on 2018 Legislative Session

July 17, 2018

There’s an old saying, “Our liberty is never safe when the New York State Legislature is in session.” There’s definitely some truth to that. This past legislative session I successfully fought back against several initiatives that would have added to our state’s crushing tax burden, added excessive regulations on businesses that hurt job creation and chipped away at ...

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 ...

If You See Something, Say Something

July 11, 2018

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.

The auditor suggests in his report to not start a capital project without having the money first. A bad example is the Granite Knolls ...
