  • In Line with Caroline: The more the merrier

    Naughty or nice, chances are you are getting something good this year! With disposable income on the rise and consumer confidence at its highest in nearly two decades, Americans are getting into the holiday spirit and spending billions more on gifts. That means plenty of tidings of comfort and joy for just about everyone on Santa’s list.

  • I was going to write regarding the BOT and the BOE and why they are leading us to bankruptcy, but I decided to dedicate this letter only to the Board of Education, because it is that board that is going to hurt us the most with what they are proposing.

  • Letter: Remembering Sissy Sherlock

    A mutual friend and neighbor asked me to come out of my letter-writing retirement (temporarily) to write a letter about Sissy Sherlock, who died in early November. "Write one like you wrote for Bill," her husband, who died nearly 20 years ago. Come to think about it, I wrote the tribute to Bill at the request of the same person who asked me today. So I am out of letter-writing retirement (temporarily) for him, and for her.

  • Village Crier: Signs that don’t make a good impression
    I’ve been driving on North Pearl Street in Port Chester on my way to Kohl’s Shopping Center or to get to fast food row and have noticed one help wanted sign on the front lawn of a house there.

  • Vitullo looks to better 190 bowling average spinning Rams into the new winter season

  • Wrestling Rams finish 2d to Fordham Prep in Miller Dual Meet Championships at Rye

    The wrestling Rams put their best collective foot forward along with their arms, shoulders, chests, hips and legs. When they were done, the Port Chester High School wrestlers had done themselves proud, wading through a pool of five tough teams, beating powerhouse squads ranging from Stepinac to St. Joseph's by-the-Sea while going undefeated in the preliminary rounds only to lose a close match to the Fordham Prep Rams in the finals of the Bernie Miller Dual Meet Championships at Rye High School last Saturday (12/2).

  • The Pride goeth before lowly basketball fall for downward spiraling Rams, Lady Rams

     They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. A picture of the scoreboard showing the final score of the Lady Rams’ opening game of the new winter season at home against Ossining tells it all or almost all: Ossining 82, Port Chester 24, making it a game that will go down in infamy, a loss by 58 points that could have been 60 had The Pride's last shot not rimmed out last Wednesday (11/29).

  • Lady Rams go into the hoop season low in numbers but high on hope

    In what will certainly go down as one of the strangest games of the current basketball season, Minnesota beat Alabama 89-84 in the championship game of the Barclay Center Classic in Brooklyn with 'Bama forced to play the final 10 minutes with just three players last Saturday (11/25). It could come down to that for Lady Rams’ basketball coach London Reyes and his short-handed high school hoops team, albeit for different reasons.

  • B.B. boys’ hoops gear up for tip-off

    After what felt like an eternity, the winter has finally arrived, and Blind Brook hoops are right around the corner.

Alongside him, senior captains Jake DiGiansante, Mike Bucci, and Alex Feuerstein will provide the bulk of the experience and on-court leadership. The group will look to improve upon their .500 performance last year in which they went 11-11.

  • Thanks for the memories of the Fall sports season

    Thanksgiving has come and gone and so have the leftovers. But the leftover memories linger. That's why Westmore News traditionally does a tribute to the top 10 Fall season Port Chester High School athletic accomplishments around this time of year even as the winter season gets underway this weekend for the five winter sports teams—basketball, wrestling, Track & Field, bowling and swimming—that will have to go a long way to match what their Fall season counterparts did during a season to remember.

    The Major League Baseball season is over. The Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers to win the World Series in the pivotal seventh game of the best-of-seven memorable Series games after the Texans edged the Yankees in an equally memorable 7-game series to see which team got a chance to play LA for all the baseball marbles. That means lovers of the game can already start looking ahead to 2018 albeit without deposed Yankee manager Joe Girardi of Harrison.

  • BBHS football team gives back

    The Blind Brook varsity football team, under the direction of Coach Chris Halstead, initiated and participated in two new community service projects.
