YORKTOWN, N.Y. - It's going to take more than a little rain to wash out Yorktown's patriotism.

Hundreds of proud Yorktown residents persisted with the town's annual Memorial Day Parade on Monday morning despite accurate predictions of rainfall.

The remembrance of America's war dead began with a solemn ceremony at the Shrub Oak memorial, just outside of the John C. Hart Memorial Library. The annual ceremony is organized by the Mohegan Lake Volunteer Fire Association.

Next, a ceremony organized by American Legion Post 1009 took place at Yorktown Town Hall, as veterans laid wreaths and saluted the flag, followed by a playing of “taps.” After parading through downtown Yorktown Heights, a ceremony was held inside the American Legion Hall on Veterans Road.

Here's What You Missed Last Week

Last week, the Daily News ran a headline, “When is our father coming home?” This dealt with a person here illegally, married to an American woman with a family, who was arrested at an Army base while delivering pizza. You are supposed to think that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), under Trump, is tearing families apart. As usual, it was a crock of cow pies. It was ...

Remembering Bobby Kennedy

I’m not the type of person who is prone to hero worship. Witnessing people screaming hysterically during rock concerts never sat well with me. Yes, I did see many a great group (the Rolling Stones, Simon & Garfunkel, the Who, the Doors), yet my demeanor was always one reflecting inner peace rather than extreme exuberance.

I was offered tickets to Woodstock (yes, originally you needed ...

I Come from the Land Down Under

I know this is a family column, so I’m going to put this in as delicate terms as possible.

This morning I woke up and I knew, as sure as the sun shines over Bora Bora, that something was very, very wrong in that place in my body where the Bora Bora sun doesn’t shine.

It’s that place I used to refer to my daughter as her hoo-hoo. But it certainly wasn’t a happy ...

Andy’s at It Again

June 13, 2018

A couple of years ago, I wrote to question why Andy wasn’t citing his sources when he flings dirt at any Democrat he wants to malign.

Well, he’s at it again. In the latest iteration, he tells us that Obama was responsible for putting a spy in the Trump campaign. He then repeats himself three more times to emphasize his point, but gives no proof or evidence to back up the ...
