Local organizations help ready students for the new school year

By JESS FASANO

The end of summer signals the beginning of the new school year, and by now many students have received a list of necessary school supplies from their soon-to-be new teachers. Several local organizations recognize that purchasing school supplies can put an added burden on families struggling financially or with other stressors, and are rallying the community to help. 

The Community Center of Northern Westchester annually distributes bags full of school supplies to preschool, elementary and secondary school students in need from all different school districts in northern Westchester County. 

According to the center’s executive director, Clare Murray, this summer the center was able to provide supplies to over 850 students. “They’re very robust packages of school supplies through the generosity of the community,” she said. This is also the third year the center was able to offer USB flash drives to all middle and high school students in need, Ms. Murray stated. 

Ms. Murray explained that the goal of the center is to give students what they need to be successful in school, saying, “We want everyone to be able to start school with a level playing field.”

Could cougars solve deer problem?

Pound Ridge buzzed earlier this summer with three reports of possible cougar sightings, including one at the Zofnass Family Preserve. Wildlife experts say that the big cats, which can weigh up to 225 pounds and measure up to 9 feet from head to tail, in fact are showing signs of a comeback in the Midwest and starting to appear in the East. A state conservation official sounded skeptical over the voracity of the locally reported sightings, but a cougar has been officially confirmed in Connecticut.

Also known as mountain lions and pumas, cougars have been in the news recently for another reason: their repopulation could prove to be an effective method for controlling the white-tailed deer problem in areas like ours.

A 2016 study published in a scientific journal called “Conservation Letters,” argued that if eastern cougars returned to their historic range, they could prevent 155 human deaths and 21,400 human injuries over the course of 30 years.
