  • 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.

  • Former Port Chester sup’t to teach citizenship class
    If you were to go out and ask 10 adults who the current United States Secretary of Defense is, how many people do you think could answer James Mattis?

  • As we approach two public votes in March, we would like to clearly restate our ongoing policy regarding letters to the editor. Letters to the editor from now on related to either vote must be 500 words or less. 
  • Letter: 100-year-old Uncle Joe Frank: A very significant man
    It is morning at Marianacci’s Restaurant in Port Chester. There have been more than 24,000 of them. Marianacci’s was a success when McDonald’s was still an experiment. The short, lean, white-haired man working steadily in the corner is Joseph “Uncle Joe” Frank.
  • Friends and neighbors, I would like to write a few lines about our upcoming mayoral election here in Port Chester. 
  • From a distance, one cannot fail to be impressed with the municipal knowledge and strong experience that Richard “Fritz” Falanka brings to the table gained from 29 years of government service. As Village Clerk, Assistant Village Manager and Village Manager, Fritz has presented numerous department-level and Village-wide budgets, interacted with thousands of Village residents to address their problems, managed Village operations on a daily basis, and provided steady leadership to staff.
  • B.B. girls’ hoops season ends with playoff loss to Bronxville

    The Blind Brook girls’ varsity basketball team faced off against the Bronxville Broncos on Saturday, Feb. 18 for their post-season sectional matchup. As of Tuesday, Jan. 10, the Broncos were ranked among the top 25 in the state, so the Trojans knew they would face a competitive team. 

  • Garcia wrestles into state championships looking to make P.C. history as 2nd seed

    Port Chester Rams freshman wrestling phenom Ivan Garcia will try to go where no other Ram wrestler has ever gone before in the state wrestling championships Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24-25 in Albany, but he will have his hands full in his history-making bid to come out on top. 

  • 3 T&F top talents running & jumping their way into Armory state qualifiers

    From senior Dennis Almeida to sophomore Erika Yupangui, exactly 90 runners and jumpers participated in fall/winter Track & Field events for the Port Chester Rams and Lady Rams. Of that number, featuring almost as wide a variety of talent as there are letters in the alphabet, just three performers from three different years in a 2-3-4 grouping made it into the indoor state championship qualifying rounds Friday, Feb. 24 at the New Balance 168th St. Regiment Armory in New York City.

  • P.C. basketball saga has a poetic zing without the ring-a-ding-ding this year
    With apologies for paraphrasing the poet T.S. Eliot, this is how it ended, not with a bang or even a whimper, but with a clang that will echo in their collective minds at isolated times for as long as they live, the clang of a basketball banging off the rim, ricocheting off the backboard into a missed rebound snared by the opposition after yet another missed layup, that desperate carom passed on into the hands of a rival gunner who hit a trey from somewhere around Yonkers Raceway that against all odds swished through the net to give Yonkers a one-point buzzer-beating win over the Port Chester basketball Rams in a season-ending away game that P.C. had to win to make the playoffs.
  • #11 Trojans pull off upset over #6 Valhalla

    As we approach the beginning of March, the biggest basketball month of the year, many begin to get eager to fill out their brackets and enjoy the madness that surrounds the NCAA tournament. Upsets are always a given and no team is guaranteed to make it to the next round. The same can be said for the high school Class B sectional playoffs. The #11 seed Blind Brook Trojans just busted a lot of brackets with their huge upset win over the #6 seed Valhalla Vikings.

  • 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).

  • B.B. boys’ hoops finish 10-10, hope to reach county center
    After an impressive road victory over Rye Neck, the Blind Brook boys’ varsity basketball team returned home feeling confident and ready for a tough rematch against Bronxville. The Broncos had defeated the Trojans by 13 points earlier in the season, giving them an even greater desire to get revenge.
