  • Embassy Theatre on the mend?

    The historic Embassy Theatre on Port Chester’s North Main Street is crumbling. In fact, in recent months the roof has been open and exposed to the elements.

  • Back to school and feeling cool

    With folders, notebooks, crayons, markers and pencil cases filled with erasers, scissors and Post-It Notes in hand, more than 60 volunteers busily flooded The Sharing Shelf halls on Saturday, Aug. 11, in assembly line fashion to stuff the assorted goods into pristine backpacks. 

  • What to do about tax certs

    Ever since the Village of Rye Brook and Blind Brook School District got hit with major tax refunds to commercial properties Reckson Operating Partnership and Doral Conference Center Associates in January, forcing the entities to take out multimillion-dollar bonds to pay for them, the Town of Rye has faced tremendous pressure from some community members regarding the tax certiorari and assessment process. 

  • We’ve been complacent.

    We thought everybody knew how important a free press was to our world and that all this talk about our being the enemy of the people would be dismissed for the silliness that it is.

  • Back on July 6, in this column, I called the efforts by the Democratic Party establishment, from Governor Andrew Cuomo right down to Rye Town Supervisor Gary Zuckerman, and including Rye Brook Together party member Mayor Paul Rosenberg, to pass state and local laws to mask property tax payments as “charitable deductions” (to avoid the Federal $10,000 limit on deductible local property taxes and state income taxes) a “scheme” – and I likened it to the efforts of Internet scammers to swindle money from hapless citizens.

  • A few weeks ago, Tom Ceruzzi wrote a rather sarcastic letter to the Westmore News ridiculing Ed Kliszus, Superintendent of Schools in Port Chester. My first thoughts were that the article was funny. However, after reading it a few times, I have come to the conclusion that it is sad so many people truly believe Dr. Kliszus had it coming.

  • This letter is a call for local residents to step forward on the important upcoming referendum on Oct. 10.

    A bit of background. In 2006, the United States of America sued Port Chester alleging that its historic system of electing two of its six Trustees each year to three-year terms violated the Voting Rights Act.
