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.

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.

If You See Something, Say Something

July 11, 2018

The auditor suggests in his report to not start a capital project without having the money first. A bad example is the Granite Knolls ...
