YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The 11U Yorktown Sluggers emerged victorious in the third annual Kids vs. Cops charity baseball game, held Saturday, June 23, at the Route 202 fields. It was a nail-biter up until the final inning, when the Sluggers broke the game open, winning 11-7 over the Yorktown Police Benevolent Association.

The charity baseball game is organized annually by Dr. Rodd Stein, Sergio Esposito and the Yorktown Chamber of Commerce. Money is 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.

Esposito said it costs about $2,500 to send one child and their family to the camp for a week. As of press time, about $13,000 in donations have been pledged or collected, Esposito said, meaning five families can attend the camp. Esposito, who is seeking families to sponsor, can be reached at sergio@comprehensivecomputers.com.

Some donors to the game included: $500 from CCM of Westchester, $1,000 from Yorktown Auto Body and $1,000 from NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital. Little Sorrento, Maria’s Pizza and Rita’s also donated food and equipment for the game.

You’ll Get a Kick out of Musical Classic ‘Anything Goes’

I’ve loved Broadway musicals since I was smaller than a piano bench. That’s one reason I enjoy writing about local productions in this space. The more people who go to musicals, the happier it makes me.

I didn’t realize how old-fashioned about musicals I could be, though, until my wife Elyse and I at long last saw “Wicked.” It only took us 15 years to get there.

Loose Ends

Real life is not the movies.

Things are not wrapped up in a neat bow, motivations are not explained, and things often don’t make sense.

Two weeks ago, a man driving “triple digits” in a Dodge Charger exited the Taconic State Parkway at Underhill Avenue, blew through a stop sign, and t-boned an SUV, injuring a mother and her 19-year-old daughter. Here is ...

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 ...
