Are We Protecting Our Environment?

January 17, 2018

When a developer tells us that his or her plans will not cause any negative environmental impacts, should the town automatically accept their statement? Or, should the town review the developer’s statement to make sure that the town’s interests, and the interests of its residents, are protected?

If the answer to this question seems obvious, then Yorktown has a problem. A serious ...

Cigarettes, Drugs and Border Patrol

This is from the website Rare: “Seattle has decided to impose a 1.75 cent per ounce tax on all sugary beverages within the city with the hopes of raising a $15 million revenue stream that it will use for programs to help people ‘have better access to fresh fruits and vegetables,’ as Seattle station KIRO 7 explains. The price of Gatorade Frost Variety Pack at Costco, usually ...

Facing My Mortality

I couldn’t have been more than 5 years old when my parents took me to visit my third cousin, Anthony. On the way to the house, I had some concerns because my parents told me that Anthony was “very sick.” When we arrived, I was startled to see his shaved head. I just wasn’t sure how to act. He quickly put me at ease with his gregarious personality and friendly nature. He ...

Talkin' 'Bout Our Generations

People try to put us d-down (Talkin’ ’bout my generation)

I’ve become obsessed of late with generations. Well, what ...

A Post-Apocalyptic House Cleaning

I’m usually pretty good about keeping track of what’s in my fridge. But over the course of a few weeks, the food containers seem to multiply and take over. By the time I get around to realizing that some items have been in there too long, the contents of the containers way in the back of the refrigerator either look like a science experiment gone awry or a refrigerated toupee.

Strategies for Test-Taking

Dear Dr. Linda,

Jenny, our smart, wonderful 10th grader, is in a state of panic because of her midterms. Last year, she did horribly on them and then she did just as poorly on her Regents and other finals. She did great in elementary school and middle school. She even does well in all her classes in high school, but scored in the 70s on last year’s midterms and finals.

The sad fact is ...

Demolishing Murphy's Is a Mistake

January 11, 2018

To the editor,

It is a shame that the rustic and pleasant Murphy’s Restaurant will be demolished, along with the handsome trees and shrubs that make outdoor dining in the garden a joy from May to October.

The replacement, a brick office building surrounded with blacktop, will be both less attractive and less kind to the environment, since blacktop creates heat and the trees that now ...
