Where Has Yorktown Gone?

Thanks to Jim Martorano’s column, we all know where Councilman Nick Bianco has gone. Happily, Nick’s alive and well and enjoying retirement in Florida. I wish him well and also thank him for his service to our town.

The bigger question is where has the Yorktown that we all knew and loved gone?

Some will say that things in Yorktown have changed for the worse.

Motives of our politicians and directions they’ve taken us have been called into question over the last few years.

Nick Bianco spoke for many of us when he said, “Only fools would do away with open space, tree laws and wetland protection. I question the true motives of those who want this. Are there financial gains for themselves, their business interests, or friends? Surely, this is not for the residents.”

Nick Bianco’s words are a breath of fresh air and crystallize what many feel is currently wrong with Yorktown’s Town Hall.

I Do Not Make Stuff Up!

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote in my column, “Watergate analogies apply to Obama, not Trump,” that President Obama’s Justice Department planted a spy in the Trump campaign.

That statement has been brought ...

What Kind of Sports Parent Are You?

Social media recently showered a lot of likes and love on a high school pitcher in Minnesota whose team was playing in a regional final that would send the winning team to the state championship game.

After the last batter of the game struck out, the pitcher did something unheard of. Rather than spontaneously join his teammates in an on-field celebration, as is customary, the pitcher ...

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...

What More Can Murphy Do?

June 21, 2018

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them. I was wondering just what new laws he would propose? How many more laws are needed? How about enforcing the numerous laws already on the books, which, by the way, isn’t being done?
