YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The ninth annual Yorktown Festival and Street Fair, an autumn tradition that draws thousands of residents and out-of-towners, was held Sunday, Oct. 8.

Throughout the day, nearly 200 vendors lined Commerce Street, Veterans Road and Jack DeVito Veterans Memorial Field. Highlighting the festival was a senior luncheon, a dog costume parade and a cupcake eating contest. Festivalgoers also gave the gift of life by participating in the American Red Cross blood drive inside the Yorktown Community and Cultural Center. Kids of all ages enjoyed rides, attractions and food provided by Funtime Amusements Inc. There was also live entertainment throughout the day on the main stage.

Catching up with Westchester County Executive George Latimer

George Latimer, our new county executive, has been in office now for a little over half a year. I thought it might be a good time to check in with my friend to see how things were going. You can see the interview in its entirety on Channel 74 (Optimum) at 9 p.m. Wednesday nights.

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.

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 ...
