Thank You from the Chamber President

To the editor,

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, to all who participated in making the seventh annual Chamber of Commerce Festival and Street Fair such a resounding success once again!

It means so much to the Chamber to have Yorktown residents and nearby guests turn out in such great numbers to support this annual event. I especially want to thank our police department, volunteer ambulance corps, our fire department and town officials for helping make this a fun and safe event for the family and neighbors to promote our local business community. Of course, a special thank you goes out to all our vendors and our major sponsors: Yorktown News, Examiner Media, Fieldhome, 100.7 WHUD, GHP Office Realty and Lennox Hill Heart and Vascular Institute of New York. Without their cooperation and participation, it would be so much harder to put on this great event.

Thank you to Mary Capoccia and Donna Diana for their countless hours of work and planning that ensured the most successful Senior Luncheon we ever had. More than 300 seniors attended.  A huge thank you goes to the following restaurants for providing a truly “gourmet” meal to our seniors: Burger King, Don Tomasso’s, Fieldhome, Frankie & Augie’Z Ristorante, Grandma’s 202 Kitchen, Jake’s Wayback Burgers, Jewel of the Himalaya, Little Sorrento, Murphy’s, New City Diner, Piatto Grill, Thyme Restaurant, Travelers Rest, Turco’s, and Yorktown Pasta and Pizza.

A special thank you goes out to Al Pisano, foreman of the Yorktown Community and Cultural Center and his men for doing such a fantastic job keeping everything clean during the event and miraculously, within two hours of closing, restoring the streets to their original use. Al, thank you again so very much.

And in conclusion, a special thank you goes to the Festival Committee! Countless meetings and hours of work ensured the success we experienced. Everyone deserves kudos, especially Chereese Hill of Events To Remember, our event planner extraordinaire!

We have already started planning the 2016 Festival and Street Fair. It will be even more exciting. We hope to see you all there.

Thank you again,
President Eric DiBartolo

It Was the Economy That Got Trump Elected

I am not easily shocked by much anymore. Yet, I was by last week’s column by fellow columnist Bernie Kosberg. Kosberg, whose column runs regularly in Mahopac News and sometimes in Yorktown News, said in the first paragraph: “Several readers decried my conclusion that the overwhelming support of Putnam County voters for Trump was not due to economic anxiety or the unavailability of ...

Challenging the Norm

In his thoughtful work, “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions,” Thomas Kuhn reflects on the revolutionary contributions of such giants as Copernicus, Newton, Darwin and Einstein. But he is quick to remind us that it’s often the scientists whose names we never hear of who make the vast majority of scientific progress. These hardworking men and women spend most of their waking ...

BOCES… What’s in a Name?

Do you ever wonder what BOCES stands for? We associate the name with a center of learning that supplements the general curriculum of local high schools by teaching students specialized trades. Beyond that, does everyone in the non-BOCES population, those who have no direct connection to the programs, fully appreciate the priceless value it brings to our communities’ young adults and their ...

Dog Allergies, Part Deux

“I have some good news and I have some bad news,” I told my husband.

“Give me the good news first.”

“OK. The vet doesn’t think the dog’s ear infections are from a food allergy after all, so we don’t have to keep feeding him that hypo-allergenic food,” I said.

“Hallelujah,” shouted my husband. He was understandably ...

Postcard Criticisms Were Valid

May 23, 2018

In an article from the May 1 issue (“Yorktown Councilmembers Receive ‘Disturbing’ Postcards”), Councilman Ed Lachterman said he was “disturbed” to receive a colored postcard from a constituent. He seems confused as to what it might mean.

I did not write that rainbow-colored postcard, but I can try to help him out of his confusion, because I and plenty ...
