YORKTOWN, N.Y. – Another egg-ceptional Easter Egg hunt was held Saturday at Downing Park. The hunt is co-sponsored annually by the Yorktown Parks and Recreation Department and the Yorktown Lions Club. The thousands of plastic Easter Eggs coating the park were scooped up in a matter of seconds by determined children. Every child collecting an egg received a prize, while several lucky children found “grand prize” eggs, which netted them a basket full of goodies.

Beyond that, does everyone in the non-BOCES population, those who have no direct connection to the programs, fully appreciate the priceless value it brings to our communities’ young adults and their ...

Dog Allergies, Part Deux

“I have some good news and I have some bad news,” I told my husband.

“Give me the good news first.”

“OK. The vet doesn’t think the dog’s ear infections are from a food allergy after all, so we don’t have to keep feeding him that hypo-allergenic food,” I said.

“Hallelujah,” shouted my husband. He was understandably ...

Postcard Criticisms Were Valid

May 23, 2018

In an article from the May 1 issue (“Yorktown Councilmembers Receive ‘Disturbing’ Postcards”), Councilman Ed Lachterman said he was “disturbed” to receive a colored postcard from a constituent. He seems confused as to what it might mean.

I did not write that rainbow-colored postcard, but I can try to help him out of his confusion, because I and plenty ...
