The Meaning of the Election Results

There are no national implications from last Tuesday’s election results. Yet, there was our very own senator, Chuck Schumer, saying, “This was a profound election result. This was the rejection of Donald Trump personally, and this was the rejection of Donald Trump’s policies. This was a full-fledged and total rejection of Donald Trump.” 

What else is he gonna say? ...

Reflections on Elections Past and Present

As I awaited the returns on election night, I couldn’t help but reflect on my very first electoral experience. It was a cold November night in 1991. Many months before, having been weaned on John F. Kennedy’s call to activism as well as my dad’s living example of community involvement, I answered an ad in the North County News which called on any persons interested in running ...

Get Your Gig On

It’s understandable that when people see empty storefronts, they infer it’s the mark of economic malaise. It is not. What’s not taken into account by jumping to that conclusion is that times change, marketplace dynamics change, shopping habits change.

Consumers are spending money, all right, just in different places and in different ways. A storefront that made sense in past ...

“The dog is worried?” my husband asked.

“Yes, he's noticed that he’s put on a few pounds since Halloween and he ...

The Importance of Reading to Your Baby

Dear Dr. Linda,

I have a 3-month-old baby and have been reading to her from the day she was born. My husband has dyslexia and I’m concerned that she may have inherited it. Will this prevent it?

Madison

Dear Madison,

I wish there was a guarantee that your baby wouldn’t inherit her dad’s “reading gene” but there isn’t. Whether she has a genetic ...

Yorktown Has Spoken

November 19, 2017

What happened? If you ever watched any Yorktown Town Board meetings over the last few years, you couldn’t help but leave with the impression that they were extremely partisan productions that could quickly devolve into a political free-for-all without warning.

Speakers at Courtesy of the Floor spoke at their own peril. Supervisor Michael Grace and Councilman Gregory Bernard consistently ...
