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.

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

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 ...

A Belated, Heartfelt Thank You

November 21, 2017

To the editor,
It is a dirty job, but someone has to do it! 

Yes, we are talking about all the litter on the sides of the roads in Somers. Litter clean-up is a never-ending job, but thanks to the dedicated residents and businesses of Somers, the task gets easier and easier each year.

The Somers Litter Task Force would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to all Somers ...
