YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Hundreds came out Saturday to watch as brightly designed holiday-themed floats made their way through Yorktown for the town’s fifth annual Holiday Electric Lights Parade. The parade started at Front Street and ended at Jack DeVito Veterans Memorial Field, where the town’s Christmas tree was lighted.

Awards were handed out for best decorated floats. The Alliance for Safe Kids, a Yorktown-based non-profit organization, was the recipient of the fifth annual Randy Zapakin Community Award, which honors outstanding individuals and community groups who provide volunteer services to Yorktown.

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list.

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
