YORKTOWN, N.Y. - The Yorktown Small Business Association is happy to announce its “Put your All into Shopping Small Program.” The program is a way of saying thank you for all you do in our community to local small businesses and will run during the entire holiday season this year, from Saturday Nov. 28, until New Year’s Day. It is also a way for businesses to say thank you to their customers. Each participating business will be giving away free raffle tickets for the New Year’s Day drawing. Prizes will consist of merchandise from the various participating businesses worth thousands of dollars. You must patronize the participating businesses in order to qualify for the free raffle tickets.

Did you know that every $100 spent at a local small business returns $68 to the local economy? That same $100 spent at a national or regional chain returns just $43 (IndependentWeStand.org). All participants will receive a package including flyers, balloons, decals, posters upon request. The YSBA is offering this program at no cost to all Yorktown local small businesses wishing to participate, all you have to do is contact us (yorktownsba@optonline.net, 914-874-4347) and request the package.

Catching up with Westchester County Executive George Latimer

George Latimer, our new county executive, has been in office now for a little over half a year. I thought it might be a good time to check in with my friend to see how things were going. You can see the interview in its entirety on Channel 74 (Optimum) at 9 p.m. Wednesday nights.

You’ll Get a Kick out of Musical Classic ‘Anything Goes’

I’ve loved Broadway musicals since I was smaller than a piano bench. That’s one reason I enjoy writing about local productions in this space. The more people who go to musicals, the happier it makes me.

I didn’t realize how old-fashioned about musicals I could be, though, until my wife Elyse and I at long last saw “Wicked.” It only took us 15 years to get there.

Loose Ends

Real life is not the movies.

Things are not wrapped up in a neat bow, motivations are not explained, and things often don’t make sense.

Two weeks ago, a man driving “triple digits” in a Dodge Charger exited the Taconic State Parkway at Underhill Avenue, blew through a stop sign, and t-boned an SUV, injuring a mother and her 19-year-old daughter. Here is ...

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 ...
