Another crash on that insane stretch of road....Saturday night I was passed by madmen on the narrowest most unforgiving rock wall sided portion of the road, and I was doing 55. Fools Every day someone crashes there..what can be done? Lowering the posted speed limit to 30 might help with flashing yellow warning lights approaching the Peekskill Hollow Road suicide exit.

Boondoggle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A boondoggle is a project that is considered a useless waste of both time and money, yet is often continued due to extraneous policy or political motivations. View Comment
Homestyle is a jewel, a gem and has brought business and traffc to a dead and isolated part of town for decades. Now to satisfy a greedy desire for funding and creation of a dubious visitors center her wonderful business is being jeopardized.
The riding roughshod over small viable business is the bane of small town America. Box stores taking profits out of state and area killed Main Street, and this asset is being harassed.
Give Homestyle the parking areas it needs. View Comment
WTF is this? "The Music Hall planned to keep a list of those who boycotted the show and send it to Cosby."
If the show is cancelled and tickets are refunded I don't get this- Is it to show Cosby that he is now disliked? How about sending him the number of cancellations and refund requests View Comment
Breath testes ...Hmmmmmm who provided that service? The Somers unlicensed massage technicians?
But seriously, again if your drinking and driving, why not put up a sign-PLEASE STOP ME! like this guy obviously did. View Comment
Seriously, Would you got to a nail spa for physical therapy or if you needed professional medical massage services?
Logic316 is correct.
Protecting the public ? Give me a break. They are providing a service to
those who are not in a "romantic" relationship who desire an appropriate and natural sexual outlet.
Internet porn flourishes, why? Not because it is being forced on anyone.
Legalize sexual service workers, include health standards and maintain sanitary conditions. View Comment
This is sad..He's too mature for this behavior
OH NO...That's two strikes...Same MO Here's the previous story:
Yorktown Police report the arrest of sixty-nine year old Paul E. Cahan of Cortlandt Manor, New York, who is charged with Resisting Arrest and Petit Larceny, both Class “A” Misdemeanors.
On October 5, 2014 at about 1:24 PM, Officer Garcia responded to the Toys R’ US store on Bank Rd. to investigate a shoplifting complaint. While enroute to the store, the defendant was identified and seen walking along Route 6 near the store. The defendant was confronted by Officer Garcia and allegedly fled on foot into a wooded area. The defendant was apprehended after a brief foot pursuit in the rear of the Toys R’ Us store. Upon apprehension and advised he was under arrest the defendant resisted arrest by not complying to commands to secure him. Subsequent to the officer’s investigation, it is also alleged that the defendant stole $283.43 worth of merchandise from Toys R’ Us.
The defendant was arraigned by Judge Raniolo and released on $500.00 bail. The defendant is scheduled to answer said charges in Yorktown Court on October 9th 2014 at 6:00pm.
ToysRus..I hope it was for toys for a needy child...
Again walking in the parking lot...Poor exit strategy
But this time it was sockets (for a wrench?) View Comment
Duncan, 46, was found alone in his car in the Bronx late Friday after a wide search was launched following his disappearance. According to WCBS, he was found to be in good health.
According to a report in the New York Daily News, Duncan may have been in possession of $40,000 he had collected from his police colleagues for a group trip to see the Giants' game Sunday in Seattle.
Surveillance video appeared to show that Duncan went to Empire Casino in
Yonkers, possibly gambling with the money he collected, the Daily News reported.
Thankfully he was found in time before he did something irrevocable. He can get over this...but not the unthinkable (A permanent solution to a temporary problem) Sadly all too often the fact that he had a gun handy ends the life of a police officer who needs counseling.
Automobile drivers need to give extra consideration to motorcyclists as they are very vulnerable, and difficult to see sometimes. Learning how to share the road is a very important lesson not often taught or spoken of.
I drove past this fatal crash last evening and saw the emergency vehicles along the TSP at the Route 202 entrance.
Then I saw the motorcycle, and my heart sank- I suspected it was going to be reported as a fatality . And yes the TSP is a shared road- no trucks are allowed but Motorcycles are most welcome. View Comment
Our local Historical Societies present very interesting and worthwhile programs and the people who participate and do service to their communities by preparing them are caring and knowledgeable people.
