Photos: Lakeland High School Graduation


WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - The Lakeland High School Class of 2017 graduated Saturday, June 24, at the Westchester County Center in White Plains.

‘We all have aspirations, but my message to you, Lakeland High School, is to dream big, because the world isn’t getting smaller and we need as many hard-working intellectuals to bring it back to its feet. Class of 2017, find your path in life, make mistakes, take risks—do whatever you need to do to find your purpose. Today, we are high school graduates. Tomorrow, we will be something bigger.’
–Salutatorian Ashley Jimenez
Lakeland High School

‘Know the difference between getting something done and completing something with pride. You will never regret going the extra mile. Get wrapped up in moments, not a Netflix series. Big games and friend hangouts cannot be paused and resumed whenever we please.’
–Valedictorian Kathryn Schore
Lakeland High School

I Do Not Make Stuff Up!

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote in my column, “Watergate analogies apply to Obama, not Trump,” that President Obama’s Justice Department planted a spy in the Trump campaign. I said I used the term “spy” because this was a counter-intelligence operation, not a criminal investigation, where the term informant would have been proper.

That statement has been brought ...

What Kind of Sports Parent Are You?

Social media recently showered a lot of likes and love on a high school pitcher in Minnesota whose team was playing in a regional final that would send the winning team to the state championship game.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them. I was wondering just what new laws he would propose? How many more laws are needed? How about enforcing the numerous laws already on the books, which, by the way, isn’t being done?
