Last Tuesday, Sept. 8, my husband and I went to dinner around 6 p.m. at DiNardo’s Restaurant. We parked across the road and by the time we left at 8:15 p.m., it was dark.  As we prepared to cross Westchester Avenue in the crosswalk, we realized that the streetlamps were not lit. It was very …

I was very disappointed in the tone of Robert Kesten’s letter (“Lewisboro cannot afford to elect ‘a professional divider,’” Sept. 11) attacking Lewisboro Town Board candidate Andrea Rendo for writing to the court asking for leniency in the sentencing of our former town judge after his guilty…

Rob Astorino, endorsed by Andrea Rendo, claimed he was “Trump before Trump.”  Astorino/Rendo politics is about dividing and conquering when consensus building is needed.  As Lewisboro Republican Party chair, Rendo launched the most divisive campaign in our town’s history, making kids sports …

Police officers are servants to the community who stand for the laws drafted by our own elected officials to protect the life, property and rights of our citizens. The job requires bravery, strength of character and ability to endure tremendous adversity.

Your story regarding the murders in Lewisboro (“Release of mother’s killer continues son’s nightmare,” Aug. 21) brought back horrible memories because we had just relocated here at that time no more than a mile away. My research indicates why there is no mystery as to why this animal is bein…

After a week in which America memorialized the passing of civil rights icon, John Lewis, I was disappointed to read Caitlin Voege’s letter (“Dividing people gets us nowhere,” Aug. 7). While the nation at large was celebrating a life spent in the struggle for racial equality, Ms. Voege sought…

Contrary to what you may have heard in the mainstream media, Hollywood, academia and politics, America is not a racist country. Yes, slavery existed and stained our history. But we fought a bloody Civil War which resulted in casualties of over approximately 700,000 people, at least 400,000 o…

In reference to Robert Castelli’s column (“In defense of our police,” July 17), he says America has the best trained, educated and dedicated police officers in the world. But in the U.S., police training lasts on average 19 weeks. In much of Europe that would be unthinkable. In Germany, for …

The Lewisboro Town Board is fully supportive of the town’s three fire departments and two ambulance units. Any suggestion that they discriminate based on race, ethnicity, gender or any other discriminatory criteria is in our mind totally unfounded and slanderous. In our experience, they are …

I am writing this in response to the signs dotting the landscape supporting Chris Burdick for state Assembly. As much as I would like to see him out of Bedford higher office is certainly not the answer. As supervisor, he has enacted laws such as the leaf blower law. Yet another example of a …
