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
Yorktown Chamber of Commerce

An 'Air of Hypocrisy' at Town Hall

February 22, 2018

There is an air of hypocrisy blowing over Yorktown and it is coming from town hall. Over the past couple of weeks, I questioned the “temporary” hiring of the Oxman Law Group as legal counsel to Yorktown in a purported “interim” capacity. I have had comments of support and comments questioning my motivation. Rather than have people guess, I would like to be ...

The DACA Dilemma and the Trick of the Trickle-Down Theory

Here is our very own Sen. Charles Schumer on the Senate floor last week: “President Trump has stood in the way of a bipartisan solution to DACA, a problem he created in the first place, and yet the president is in this dream world. He thinks, ‘Oh, I can blame Democrats for the impasse.’ As I said, only in the 1984 world where up is down and black is white could this be true.

A Gold Medal for Jerry

Time advances at a relentless pace. It seems like life moves as though through a movie projector operating at triple speed. As Virgil commented, “It flies never to be regained.” We desperately try to slow its unyielding march by celebrating milestones: birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, weddings, etc. The hope is that we can somehow slow the process, take a breath and enjoy the ...

I Love 'I Hate Halet'

Let’s face it, folks. Not everyone loves Shakespeare. Not even all actors. Andrew Rally is one of them. In fact, where there’s a Will, there’s a way Andrew will find to avoid acting in one of those famously timeless plays. And for good reason. Shakespeare tests, to the fullest, an actor’s mettle, and Andrew is strictly a TV actor.

He has just ended a star turn in the ...

I Am Woman, Hair Me Roar

When you have short hair, it is inevitable that you will spend an inordinate amount of time growing your hair out and then getting fed up and cutting it again. I have been down this hair-brained road several dozen times before, complaining for months until I am convinced my husband is going to cut it all off while I sleep just so he doesn’t have to listen to me whine about it one more ...

Should Valentine's Day Be Celebrated at School?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I’ve been a third-grade teacher for over 20 years and have never allowed my students to celebrate Valentine’s Day in my class. I know my colleagues think I’m mean, but I’m refusing to celebrate it for many reasons.

1) Children hand out cards to each other and there’s always some child left out or who gets very few; 2) Children are always asked ...
