SHRUB OAK, N.Y.-Two Shrub Oak fitness centers, United Martial Arts Center and Team Moljo, joined forces on Saturday, March 10, to complete 10,000 Rounds of Fitness at the Jefferson Valley Mall. From burpees to jump rope, participants tallied every round of exercise they completed until the group reached 10,000. Demos, raffles and prizes helped raised $12,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Last year, Chris Berlow, the owner of United Martial Arts Center, also raised money for the charity by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. In a few months, he will set his sights on Everest Base Camp in Nepal.

Danny’s Cycles and PSCB Bank were among the top sponsors of the event, Berlow said.

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.

Having been a practicing lawyer since 1974, I felt confident about my qualifications for the position of town judge, but being elected to the Town Board was quite ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

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 ...
