BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. - A birthday celebration in honor of Support Connection’s 20 years of service to the community was held last Wednesday at The Briarcliff Manor.

The Yorktown-based not-for-profit organization, which provides support to breast and ovarian cancer patients, was founded in July 1996. In the two decades since Support Connection was established, it has helped thousands of women and families cope with the challenges that result from a breast or ovarian cancer diagnosis.

Support Connection’s co-founders, Nancy Heller and Rich Adamski, both of Yorktown Heights, were on hand for the festivities, as was founding Executive Director Katherine Quinn of Shrub Oak.

“It’s hard to believe that 20 years has gone by,” Quinn said.

The celebration included unlimited wine, cheese and hors d’oeuvres. There were also music, raffles and, of course, a birthday cake.

A (Burnt) Toast to Love and Marriage, on the Rocks

In its first few moments, sitcom-style comedy “Clever Little Lies” grabs audience attention right away, with one of the most revealing wardrobe changes you’ll ever see on stage. It is done modestly but just provocatively enough to elicit vocal appreciation from amused patrons.

Assemblyman Kevin Byrne Looks Back on 2018 Legislative Session

July 17, 2018

There’s an old saying, “Our liberty is never safe when the New York State Legislature is in session.” There’s definitely some truth to that. This past legislative session I successfully fought back against several initiatives that would have added to our state’s crushing tax burden, added excessive regulations on businesses that hurt job creation and chipped away at ...

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 ...
