YORKTOWN, N.Y. – After two weeks of washouts, the sky finally opened up on Thursday, Aug. 3, for the parks and recreation department's annual Outdoor Movie Night.

The postponements did not hurt attendance, as hundreds of families arrived at Jack DeVito Veterans Memorial Field, some as early as 6 p.m. While waiting for the sun to set, families enjoyed games provided by the Alliance for Safe Kids, popcorn from the Yorktown Leos Club, and a dance party.

Prior to a showing of Disney's “Moana,” the recreation department screened “The Trails of Yorktown,” a five-minute video created by Liz Gmoser, a Yorktown High School graduate and Girl Scout Gold Award winner. The video can be viewed online here:

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

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

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...

What More Can Murphy Do?

June 21, 2018

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?

What ...
