Yorktown Electric Lights Parade 'a Huge Success'

To the editor,

Once again, the town of Yorktown had a phenomenal event for all the residents on Saturday, Dec. 3, proving that Yorktown is moving in a fantastic direction. The Christmas electric lights parade presented by the Yorktown Parks and Recreation Department, Yorktown Volunteer Fire Department and the Mohegan Lake Volunteer Fire Department was absolutely a huge success.

The streets were lined with thousands of people, the floats were all incredible and the holiday spirit amongst everyone is what makes Yorktown such a fantastic town. As president of the Chamber of Commerce, I was so excited to see how many people came out for this event! Every restaurant, pizzeria and coffee house was packed! The lines were out the door the entire evening for all the restaurants! What a great way to promote our businesses in Yorktown and to have an event like this where everyone truly benefits, from the residences to the business owners.

I was getting phone calls from people asking where they can go eat in Yorktown as they were waiting 45 minutes to an hour to get into any restaurant. The restaurant owners were ecstatic and the people in Yorktown had a great night. As president of the Yorktown Chamber of Commerce, I would like to say thank you to everyone who participated in making Yorktown a successful town.

There is one thing that can never be overlooked: the great kick-off party that Yorktown Auto Body did for this event. All types of food were served, from hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken to pretzels, hot chocolate and hot cider. All of this was a giveback donation to Yorktown from the owners of Yorktown Auto Body. I would just like to say thank you so very much for your generosity at this event!

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

The Best of the Best: Albert Capellini

In the spring of 1991, after answering an ad for a judicial race placed in the local Yorktown paper, I was talked into the unenviable position of running for Yorktown councilman as a Democrat in our then solidly Republican town.

Having been a practicing lawyer since 1974, I felt confident about my qualifications for the position of town judge, but being elected to the Town Board was quite ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

Why Do Kids Hate Math?

Dear Dr. Linda,

I am in second grade and have a problem about math. My teacher just keeps giving me homework and it’s driving me crazy. Because she keeps giving it to me on weekends and spring and summer breaks. And it’s only one level and it’s too hard. But the other people who have special needs get to be moved into a higher or lower group and they learn even more because ...
