The Eyebrows Have It

As I perused the latest fashion magazine, I noticed something about the models.

They all had big eyebrows. Big, perfect eyebrows. Big, sculpted, perfectly groomed and arched eyebrows.

And I did not.

Not that I’m comparing myself to a model, because that would be impossible on just so many levels. I could not make myself 6 feet tall, 115 pounds and willowy without a body transplant. But I could have fabulous brows. Apparently all I needed to achieve uber-eyebrows was a kit.

“This eyebrow kit has a dark wax to define and shape your brows along with a setting powder,” said the eyebrow lady at the eyebrow salon. “There is also a brush to create an arch for your brows and another to help fill them in. You also get a stencil to get the perfect shape and a lighter pencil to go under your brows to help highlight the arch. AND, there is a trimmer to help with the unruly eyebrow hairs that can’t be tamed.”

I looked at the array of tools and counted. All total there were seven items needed to achieve the perfect eyebrow. That was more than all the other products I used on my whole body every day. Still, I was curious to see what I would look like with fabulous brows, so I jumped in the beauty brow chair and let her work her eyebrow magic on me. When she was done, I actually looked like a supermodel… from the eyebrows up.

I was so excited, I bought the kit for a gazillion dollars and ran home to give it a try.

Thank You for Another Year

January 3, 2018

Every Tuesday at 4:01 p.m., a minute after we put our fourth and final Halston Media publication to bed, I start thinking about next week’s issue of Yorktown News.

This is a job that does not allow for much rose-smelling.

But, in putting together our Year in Review issue, I must admit that I became a little emotional looking at all the stories we told and moments we captured in the ...

Who Really Killed Eric Garner?*

Last week, Erica Garner died.* She was the daughter of Eric Garner, who died while resisting arrest for selling individual cigarettes, otherwise known as “loosies.”* Most news stories about her death begin this way: “Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner, who died from a police choke-hold screaming ‘I can’t breath...’ ”* This event lead Erica to become an ...

Surviving 2018

The issues facing our community, our country and our planet are numerous and incredibly complicated. Determining the appropriate actions that government must take in finding solutions takes the strength of even the most intelligent, ethical and wise leader. Such leaders should arduously sift through the available information, weighing their own inclinations with those of experts in the field as ...

Farewell, Sad Old Year… Hello, Happy New Year

I’ve started reading a page-turner of a book. It’s not by J.K. Rowling or Dan Brown or even E. L. James.

The book’s sexy title is “Modern Ethics in 77 Arguments,” by Peter Catapano and Simon Critchley (Liveright, 2017). As I thumbed through its pages at the library, I was intrigued by the chapter titles alone, some of which are listed at the end of this ...

Speak Softly and Carry a Big Grudge

Contrary to what I generally tell people, the happiest moment of my life was not the day I got married, nor the final push when I gave birth to either of my two kids. It was the day a driver tailgated me relentlessly for five miles and then sped away… until he got pulled over by a state trooper.

Although I know it is better to forgive and forget, I am just not one of those people who is ...

Meeting Basic Needs to Improve Teen Learning

Dear Dr. Linda,

I teach third grade and I want to tell parents to make sure their children have had breakfast before coming to school. They can’t learn if they’re hungry!

I actually have a drawer of snacks in case a child is hungry. I shouldn’t have to do that. These children are not poor. In addition, it’s probably illegal because of allergies, but a child who is ...

Demolishing Murphy's Is a Mistake

January 11, 2018

To the editor,

It is a shame that the rustic and pleasant Murphy’s Restaurant will be demolished, along with the handsome trees and shrubs that make outdoor dining in the garden a joy from May to October.

The replacement, a brick office building surrounded with blacktop, will be both less attractive and less kind to the environment, since blacktop creates heat and the trees that now ...
