  • Building of Colony Grill approved for waterfront

    Following a public hearing and discussions that extended over two meetings, the Port Chester Board of Trustees gave the final approvals to G&S Investors to build a Colony Grill restaurant on the triangular piece of property off the marina parking lot. It is one of the last parcels in the G&S downtown development plan, the other being the vacant lot across from the AMC Loews movie theater complex and Buffalo Wild Wings.

  • Turning 750 pounds of clay into 1,000 hours of service

    Molding a community is not much different than shaping a clay bowl – it has be kneaded, shaped and sculpted by the hands that make it. That is the reasoning behind Edward “Teddy” Poneman’s Bowling Together initiative, an idea that received a $2,500 grant from ArtsWestchester for 2017. He received the grant in December 2016.

  • The Port Chester school bond will be going before the voters on Mar. 28, and as we all know, the last bond was defeated. People who voted against that bond and who plan to vote against this bond should realize that many changes being made to the schools MUST be made. 
  • Letter: Let’s Huddle together
    On Saturday, Feb. 11, an energetic group of 60 (we expected 40!) gathered at Community Synagogue of Rye for our first Huddle.

  • On Mar. 21, 2017, I will cast my vote for Fritz Falanka for mayor of Port Chester. Mr. Falanka has the passion and dedication to take a project from start to finish and see it through to completion with a high regard of integrity to ensure it is done properly and well executed. 

  • I’m writing this letter in support of the Port Chester school bond. I understand that this bond proposal affects people in different ways and that there is no easy answer. With that said, I do ask that everyone speak to a current Port Chester student and hear from them what they are going through day in and day out. 
  • Near misses forecast future success for budding P.C. Ram swimmers
    It all came together yesterday (Thursday, Feb. 16) for the Port Chester Rams swim team in a very different kind of after school pool, a scheduled celebratory gathering at Frankie & Louie's Restaurant & Pizzeria on Willett Avenue where they pooled their memories of how far they had come during their third consecutive winless season. 
  • Lady Rams wind down hoop season with 3 losses
    Chicken Joe's yummy fast-food specialists from Greenwich may be one of the Port Chester Lady Rams basketball team sponsors, with residents Joe and Nina Marini supplying P.C. with all kinds of goodies gratis to sell at their home games to raise funds for the team, but P.C. sure ain't chicken when it comes to booking quality opponents. 
  • RTH Titans skate into playoffs

    The Rye Town/Harrison Titans were hoping to head into the playoffs coming off two big road wins but failed to win either of them and went 0-2, finishing the ice hockey season with a record of 11 wins and eight losses. They look to bounce back from their late season slump and make a deep run in the playoffs. 

  • Garcia wins sectional wrestling title

    Up until last week Port Chester had a "Magnificent 7" when it came to Section I Division 1 wrestling champions dating back to 1967 when heavyweight George Smith became the first to qualify for the state championships. He was followed over the years by Bill James (wrestling in the 126-pound weight class in 1979), George Tucker (132 in 1982), Declan Josephson (171 and 189 in 2002 and 2003 respectively), Joe Facciola (189 in 2006) and Josue Cardenas (189 in 2009).

  • Ups and downs for P.C. T&F team in Armory Class A Championships

  • Hoop Rams lose to Yonkers by one point in game they had to win to make playoffs

    The coach saw it coming from the outset. But it snuck up on his disbelieving Port Chester basketball Rams. They never knew what hit them. Until it was too late. In more ways than one. Because now the days of all the playoff possibilities are over. And the ain't going to never happen no way realities have set in.

  • RTH boys’ varsity hockey struggling to regain momentum going into playoffs

    After coming off devastating back-to-back losses, the Rye Town/Harrison Titans split their hockey games this week with a win over Carmel and a tough loss against John Jay. As they prepare to enter the playoffs, the Titans currently sit with a record of 11 wins and seven losses on the season.

  • Hoop Lady Rams humbled by Pride, but a menu of better days awaits them

    It may well have taken a village for the struggling Port Chester Lady Rams basketball team to have any kind of shot against the Ossining Pride, winner of four state championships, six consecutive Westchester championships, and a team that hadn't lost a Section One game since Feb. 4, 2011, a streak of 93 consecutive games that ended last Wednesday (Feb. 1) when 16-1 Albertus Magnus beat the Pride 80-75 to become Westchester's top-ranked team, relegating Ossining to an unaccustomed second place.

  • Garcia & Mendez wrestle way into Sectionals

    Ivan Garcia, wrestling at 99 pounds, and Brayan Mendez, grappling in the 120-pound weight class, looked good in the wrestling Rams’ final regular season home tune-up last Wednesday (Feb. 1) against Pleasantville. That was not the case for the rest of the team except for Brandon Defreitas who continued his late season heavyweight surge with a win in the bruising 220-pound weight class.
