We need to change the academic direction of our district and that requires experience, BCSD knowledge and a fresh perspective. Rob Mazurek and Steve Matlin are the candidates who have those skill sets sorely needed on the board. They have raised their children here and are committed voluntee…

I am pleased to write in support of Michael Bauscher’s candidacy for the Bedford Central Board of Education. I have been a resident of Mount Kisco since 2006 and have had two children in the school system since 2016. I’ve experienced the diversity and strong community bonds as a parent who h…

I’ve been part of this community for almost four years — and what a privilege it is to live here. But this past year has reinforced, among other things, my view that along with privilege comes a significant responsibility to create foundations that ensure the well-being of our society at lar…

This is an exciting time with great opportunity as we emerge from the pandemic. Now is the time to concentrate our attention on student programs. We need to ensure all students needs are addressed, focus on outcomes, especially of those most affected this year, and ensure that our schools ar…

We are at a time in our world where people are taking stock of what they believe is important and what needs to change. For me, it has been a time to reflect on our school system and what we need to make our children’s education one that will help develop the whole child.

The biggest challenge Bedford Central School District faces is ensuring the learning gap created by the global pandemic is properly addressed for all students. The last few years we have seen the Board of Education focus too much on issues which have little impact on our children’s education…

For anyone that hasn’t been following the proposed Verizon cell tower in Bedford Village issue closely, let me shed some light on where it stands. After approximately six years of studying Verizon’s special use permit proposal to erect a 150-foot cell tower at 91 Hickory Lane, the Bedford Pl…

I am writing to show support for Michael Bauscher for reelection to the Bedford Central Board of Education this spring. Mr. Bauscher’s first term on the board coincided with multiple seismic events in our district. The implementation of the dual language program, the consequences of declinin…

I have lived in Bedford Village for 27 years; we have 3 acres. I have been a member of the Leaf Blower Committee for two or three years. I have used no leaf blowers on our lawn for years now. We mulch the leaves, and the lawn doesn’t require much, if any, fertilizer. The noise of my neighbor…

Regarding your article, “Ban ahead on leaf blowers?” (April 23), thank you for your coverage of this important issue. My husband and I are both now retired, so we are home most of the time, in a densely populated neighborhood designated a Town of Bedford hamlet zone.

“The Town of Lewisboro recognizes the inherent value and necessity of preserving and protecting trees in our overwhelmingly residential community.” Most if not everyone in town agrees with these words taken from the preamble to Lewisboro’s new tree ordinance, so why does the law remain so co…

In January I had no idea what would happen when Pennies for Posies collection cans were set out to raise funds for beautification projects in Pound Ridge. Coins, dollar bills and bottle deposit receipts found their way into collection cans throughout the town’s businesses. Bags of coins were…

Last week we had another power outage in Vista. This one due to a truck hitting a single utility pole, affecting nearly 1,000 households. While this is an isolated incident, it is part of a much bigger problem of frequent, increased andcontinuing power outages in Lewisboro because our power …

The Katonah-Lewisboro School District has been a beacon of stability throughout this period of unprecedented uncertainty. They’re continuing on that path by bringing students back in-person five days-a-week. I’m breathing a sigh of relief to have another social support back in place.

I thank The Record-Review for reporting last week of the situation on Hillside Avenue in Katonah (“Hillside Avenue proposal raises concerns,” April 2). The residents are aggrieved over plans of the developer who purchased the property. The southern end of the plot was never developed by the …

Ms. Ryan's rejection of Indian Hill as the 1644 Massacre site (“Was there a massacre on Indian Hill?” March 26) is based on no new evidence since the 1800s. Determining the location based on the Journal of New Netherland account is an academic exercise, but also an exercise in futility. We k…

Bedford is generally a pretty enlightened place, but I wouldn’t be surprised if even here we have our share of anti-vaxxers — those people who won’t take the coronavirus vaccine, not because of any medical issues, but because they simply don’t believe in it.

The Lewisboro Town Board’s first Master Plan work session left me skeptical that any new plan would fulfill its role as a framework for future land use, development and infrastructure decisions that reflect the broad goals of our community. With their recent stumbles over matters like cell t…

I was saddened to read about the passing of Ray Errickson (“Town department head fondly remembered,” March 19). As a member of the Pound Ridge Recreation Commission in the 1990s, I was fortunate to work closely with Ray while he served as superintendent of the town park and pool. He was “han…

Officers in Minneapolis didn’t start Monday, May 25, 2020, planning to kill a black man. Yet it happened. The Committee on Police Reform and Reinvention was formed to ensure that nothing like that ever happens in Lewisboro. But to prevent it, we have to understand how it happened. The answer…

We can agree there is racism in this country. Is it as widespread, institutionalized, as some want us to believe? Should our schools be making their students feel guilty? Is this damaging or effective cultural indoctrination? Who should control this discourse on our children’s values?

With the state budget due shortly and the focus of the legislature concentrating on it and its historic shortfall for the next month, it would be nice to know that before they cut, before they raise taxes, they look at the corruption and near corruption across the state.

Plum Plums attracts visitors to Scotts Corners from near and far, so the landlord’s failure to renew their lease is a serious loss. Because there is no replacement tenant lined up for Plum Plum’s space, there is the suggestion that the landlord may have been bluffing when he attempted to dra…

We would like to commend the Bedford Central School District Board for cancelling the 30-acre solar array off Guard Hill Road at West Patent School. We all learned a lot about the complexities of commercial solar power placed in residential neighborhoods. Moreover, the community had to addre…
