He Said, She Said, and the Truth

We spend so much time teaching our children not to bully one another and not to gossip, but all too often adults don’t practice what they preach, especially given the often toxic and viral nature of social media.

Given the series of events last week regarding a disputed story involving the Somers girls and Yorktown boys lacrosse players, it seems that Somers school administrators were ...

Grace Responds to Dismissal of Ethics Complaint

June 14, 2017

Editor’s Note: At last week’s town board meeting, the board voted to accept the dismissal of the ethics complaint filed against Supervisor Michael Grace. In a unanimous decision, the town’s ethics board rejected the complaint filed by Mark Lieberman alleging a conflict of interest by the supervisor’s vote to adopt the town’s 485-B tax abatement program.

The ...

Maybe I Was Wrong

So, last week, after 150-plus days in office, President Trump finally had a full cabinet. Even with a Republican-controlled Senate and only needing 51 votes, it took this long for his nominees to be confirmed.

We were introduced to them last week and as they went around the table introducing themselves, they all had kind words to say about their new boss. Within minutes, the media was saying ...

If Watergate Happened Today

When President Trump called the mainstream media “the enemy of the people,” he called into question the very underpinnings of a free and vibrant democracy. The function of a free and undeterred press is so important that our founders made its protection part of the First Amendment to the Constitution. Similarly, our third president, Thomas Jefferson, unlike President Trump, had this ...

Mom + Pop Culture Talk Shop

Author’s Note: Mom + Pop Culture are a couple of real characters. They could be you and me. Or not. Every so often, I eavesdrop on their conversations. Let’s listen in on what they’re saying right now about the common misperception of what empty storefronts signify.

POP CULTURE: Mom, did you see that new empty storefront in the strip mall?

MOM CULTURE: No, Pop. Which ...

Music to Nobody‘s Ears

I winced as we sat in the audience of an experimental music concert played by a string quartet. Calling it music was being generous. It was more like the sound of a subway car screeching on the tracks, mixed with nails on a chalkboard, and choruses of crying babies on an airplane.

“I don't get it,” I whispered to my husband as the quartet tweaked their instruments so violently ...

Looking at the Orton-Gillingham Approach to Reading

Dear Dr. Linda,

In one of your recent columns a parent asked if his son should attend the school’s summer reading program. The father didn’t want him to go because the father had had a bad experience with a summer reading program when he was a kid. Here’s my question. My daughter’s school is providing a summer reading program and her teacher recommends that she attend ...

Yorktown Is Pro-Business

June 21, 2017

Some of the recent comments from residents regarding the redevelopment of Yorktown are difficult to understand. Over the years, the town of Yorktown was subject to the obstruction and anti- business attitude of Democratic board members and one R.I.N.O. supervisor who made investments in Yorktown more of a gamble than necessary.

One example is their refusal to work with the JV Mall, causing a ...

Topics can center on such concerns as how to handle homework dilemmas or what questions to ask at a CSE meeting. Questions can range from “How best do parents advocate for their ...
