  • The art of creation: Using eggs as a base

    How can anyone turn an ordinary bird egg into a work of art? Rye Brook resident Theresa DiLucchio says all it takes is steady hands and plenty of practice. But if you asked DiLucchio to draw a straight line 40 years ago, the now 90-year-old would have just laughed.

    She never imagined that attending an Egg Show in Westlake, Calif., in the 1970s with her sister would introduce her to the world of art

  • Inspirational P.C. phys ed teacher Jon Plato and story behind the Platinum Rams debut

    They call them the Platinum Rams.

    Not as in Platinum, the statusy credit cards. Or as in Platinum, the designation for a chart-topping multi-million-copy-selling hit musical record. Or even as the chemical element for a dense, malleable, ductile, highly unreactive, precious gray-white transition metal.

  • Baseball Rams lose to Foxes, Greeley with quiet bats & no quick fix in sight

    Ask not for whom the bells toll because every time the bells in the clock tower at Port Chester High School tolled on the hour this past Tuesday, they told of more bad news for the Rams baseball team, like Fox Lane scoring an average of five runs every hour on the hour for three very long and frigid hours when the P.C. bats were cold and the Foxes’ bats heated up to the tune of a 15-1 pounding of three different P.C. pitchers.

  • Baseball Rams lose Gillespie to hurting arm and lose more than a game to Greeley 7-4

    It was a statement game. Granted it was the season's first game--the home opener Monday, Apr. 3 against New Rochelle. And it really is too soon to tell.
