  • 180 apartment homes proposed for New Broad St.

    Development interest in Port Chester along the Metro-North train line is at an all-time high.

  • Village Crier: Is the Yacht Club a harbor of bigotry?

    A concerned reader recently contacted me about a troubling situation. Port Chester has a boat moored in its harbor that is flying the Confederate flag. I assume the mooring is owned by the Port Chester Yacht Club and the owner of this boat (there are no real yachts at the club) is a member.

  • On Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2017, registered voters of the Blind Brook School District authorized spending of up to $44.7 million to construct additions and make alterations and improvements to its public school buildings. By a vote of 540 to 155, the special referendum passed.

  • You are not forgotten. Each year, with the assistance of the local Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, our Council of the Knights of Columbus celebrates your military service to our nation. The event is sponsored by local businesses and individuals.

  • The Taxpayers Alliance Group has had a watchful eye pertaining to school matters and especially the budget and spending aspects. We feel, and with proof to back it up, that the recent bond passage was fraught with illegalities and misinformation that emanated from the then school board. 
  • Blind Brook football team looks to make playoff run

    The Blind Brook varsity football team traveled to and defeated Hastings-on-Hudson last Saturday, Oct. 14 by a score of 31-17 to complete their regular season with a record of 4-3.

  • Tommy Perrone wins frosh Bobcat Invitational
    In one of the closest finishes in Port Chester cross-country history, Rams freshman phenom-in-the-making Thomas Perrone came from 40 yards back with less than a quarter of mile to go in a 1.1.-mile race to overtake lead runner John D'Abanzo of Byram Hills at the tape to win the Bobcat Invitational last Saturday (10/14) in a time of 8:16.6. 
  • Swimming Lady Rams enter divisionals on a high
    The flu bug sweeping through the high school has taken its toll, causing all kinds of respiratory havoc with the Port Chester girls’ varsity swim team.
  • Clarkstown North knocks P.C. Rams out of playoffs

    They still got game, but they didn't play much of one, much of a playoff game, that is, with the Port Chester High School football Rams losing to the Clarkstown North Rams 22-0 away last Friday night, Oct. 13 under the lights in Rockland County.

  • Fledgling Lady Rams tennis team wins deuce
    Blonde Russian beauty Maria Sharapova came from behind in each set to defeat Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka 7-5, 7-6 (8) last Sunday (10/15) to win the Tanjian Open in China, her first World Tennis Association title in more than two years and the first since she returned to the pro tour in April after an 18-month doping ban.
  • B.B. boys’ soccer wins league, prepares for the playoffs
    The Blind Brook boys’ varsity soccer team concluded their 2017 regular season campaign this past press week, finishing with a record of 1-2 for the week and an impressive final record of 12-2-2 after all 16 games. 
  • Rams yes, Lady Rams maybe as soccer playoffs loom
    Making the playoffs can be a tricky business even after the 61 Section One teams have played 16 games each during a regular season that runs from early September through mid-October. That's time enough for a lot of tumbles, fumbles, close games, overtime losses and shutouts. 
  • B.B. volleyball record now 7-6
    Blind Brook volleyball had a tough week, with one win and two losses. The Trojans haven’t been doing as well recently as they were before, but can’t give up.
  • Outpouring of support for Manny Martinez in bid to retain job as B.B. basketball coach

    The controversial hoopla involving the Blind Brook Lady Trojans varsity basketball coach, the school's athletic director and the Blind Brook Board of Education (BOE) is heating up.

  • Lady Ram volleyballers beat White Plains for first win during unhappy 1-13 season

    As literary opening lines go, one of the most famous is the first line of Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina," the line with a troubling statement about the human condition, the line that goes: "All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."
