YORKTOWN, N.Y. – Two new scoreboards, purchased with funds from a $35,000 grant secured by state Sen. Terrence Murphy, have been installed at Yorktown High School’s baseball and softball fields.

“As a native of Yorktown who graduated from this school, I am proud to see our Huskers get modern, eye-catching scoreboards that will help attract more fans,” Murphy said in a press release.

Murphy visited the fields last week with Athletic Director Fio Nardone and Superintendent Dr. Ralph Napolitano, who are both retiring after long tenures with the school the district. The senator presented them with proclamations in honor of their careers.

“I would also like to congratulate and thank Dr. Napolitano and Coach Nardone for their many contributions to the school district,” Murphy said. “Dr. Napolitano has been an outstanding leader who cares deeply for the welfare and education of his students. Fio Nardone is more than a coach; he is a legend. He has built an impressive sports program and instilled a sense of sportsmanship and integrity in his players. Both men will be sorely missed."

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.

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 ...
