MOHEGAN LAKE, N.Y. – The 23rd annual Yorktown Lions Club Summer Concert Series will return with five Sunday concerts and a special Saturday Spectacular Music Festival.

“This year's concert series promises to be one of our best,” said Councilman Ed Lachterman, chair of the Lions Concert Committee. “We have some great talent including lots of local bands. Our all day music festival will feature seven different bands, most from Yorktown, local vendors, rides for the kids, food and hay rides by the Yorktown tractor club. It promises to be a fun day for all.”

Sunday concerts will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at Jack DeVito Veterans Memorial Field in Yorktown Heights. Food and refreshments will be available. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be held at the Yorktown Stage. No food, drinks or coolers are allowed inside the theater.

The Yorktown chapter of Lions International was founded in 1960. It is comprised of local members of the community who serve to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors, with an emphasis on the vision impaired. Some of the community events sponsored by the club include the Halloween Parade and Carnival, Santa visits to special needs children, Summer Concerts at the Jack DeVito Veterans Memorial Field, and the Yorktown Easter Egg Hunt. Also, the Lions work with Guiding Eyes for the Blind, My Brother Vinny, the Montrose VA, local food banks, Support Connection, and the Yorktown schools in the form of the Leos (the youth version of the Lions) and four yearly high school scholarships.

Not Neutral on the Internet

I think one of the reasons I have been able to have a print column for the last 10 years is that I have an understanding of most of the readers. I have not lost “the common touch.” I am one of you. So when it comes to computers, I believe I am no different from most of you. I know how to turn it on. I know how to get and use the functions I need. After that, I am lost.

So whenever ...

The Scorpion and the Frog

The ability to think both rationally and critically is an essential skill. The distinction between rational and critical thinking is worth noting. Say, for example, you make last-minute plans with friends to go for dinner with the proviso that you pick the restaurant. It’s 6 p.m. and you want to meet them in an hour because their babysitter can only stay until 9:30. To make an informed ...

The Millennial Guide to Shopping

My 27-year-old daughter, Elissa, asked me what I wanted this holiday season. My choice was one of those newfangled, voice-activated digital doodads disguised as an unassuming sound speaker but which otherwise behaves like the late, great Robin Williams’ Genie from Disney’s “Aladdin.” “Your wish is my command!”

Already knowing the two dominant brands in this ...

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.

What Are the Real Issues Affecting Bad Grades?

Dear Dr. Linda,

We have two boys, Dan in 11th grade and Luke in eighth. Dan always gets straight A’s while his younger brother, Luke, gets B’s and C’s. As the years have gone on, Dan has kept his grades up but Luke’s have gone down. Not only have his grades gone down, but he seems to have actually “checked out.” He goes to school but does poorly and ...

To the editor,

Another year almost gone, the elections are over and the holidays are upon us. For some of us it is a time to be thankful, huddle with our families and friends, reflect on our accomplishments, acknowledge our failures and set goals for the coming new year. We will be celebrating the successes of our community, its businesses, residents and community service organizations as well ...
