KATONAH, N.Y. – For the 34th year in a row, the Katonah Museum of Art is holding its Young Artists exhibition showcasing the talents of dozens of young artists from across Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Dutchess and Fairfield counties.

More than 400 artworks by high school students from throughout the region are spotlighted in this exhibit. Museum officials say the program gives teens “the opportunity to work behind-the-scenes to produce a museum exhibition.” Over a period of several months, the young artists take on the roles of curator, exhibition designer, graphic designer, art installer and artist as they collaborate with professionals to produce the exhibition. The Young Artists Exhibition runs through March 5.

The museum is located at 134 Jay Street-Route 22 in Katonah. For more information, visit katonahmuseum.org.

The year 1880 was witness to a similar upturn in suicides in Europe, so much so that scientist, ...

Rage Cycles

The background news of politics each week seems to grow louder and louder, with every activity of the Trump administration creating hysteria, and denunciations, or comparisons to Nazis or other fascists.

A (Burnt) Toast to Love and Marriage, on the Rocks

In its first few moments, sitcom-style comedy “Clever Little Lies” grabs audience attention right away, with one of the most revealing wardrobe changes you’ll ever see on stage. It is done modestly but just provocatively enough to elicit vocal appreciation from amused patrons.

The fast-paced play, starring Richard Kline of TV comedy classic “Three’s ...

Introducing Yorktown Heights

July 11, 2018

So, it appears our small community was thrust into the spotlight earlier this month in a most unexpected way.

A little-known Congressional candidate pulled off a major upset in her Democratic primary and became an overnight celebrity. Before this, our biggest claim to fame was that we had a funny police department that liked to make jokes on Facebook.

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...

If You See Something, Say Something

July 11, 2018

I am writing this letter because I see something different with the new Yorktown Town Board. I see an open government instead of a dictatorship with rubber stamps. I see the new Town Board working together for the best interests of the residents in Yorktown.

The auditor suggests in his report to not start a capital project without having the money first. A bad example is the Granite Knolls ...
