As Westchester celebrated Memorial Day
last weekend, we sometimes forget what the
holiday is all about as we travel and enjoy the
first weekend of the summer.
Gold Star Mother Sandra Jones, affectionately known as “Mama Jones” has helped Rising newspapers, and our readers, remember
what Memorial Day is all about — to remember
those who served and died while defending our
country.
In 1983, 241 US Marines were killed in a
suicide truck bombing of a Marine barracks in
Beirut, Lebanon. Islamic Jihad claimed respon-
sibility for the bombing, which was the deadliest
single day for our Marines since the Battle of
Iwo Jima in WWII and what turned out to be the
first act of terrorism against our country. .
Mama Jones’ son, Lance Corporal Craig
Wyche, was among those lost that day. Wyche
grew up in Ossining and attended Ossining High
School, where he starred on the football team.
He was remembered in Ossining when a new
street was named after him in not long after the
incident.
Unfortunately, Wyche’s family could not

We Need a ‘Grand Bargain’
in Washington and White Plains
By Dan Murphy
Last summer, Americans witnessed government gridlock in Washington, DC. The President and republicans in Congress were unable to
come to an agreement on a higher debt ceiling,
resulting in gridlock and the U.S. losing its AAA
credit rating.
Although an agreement was reached to
raise the debt ceiling later that year, there was
no agreement to cut spending or raise taxes, both
of which are needed to solve our yearly trilliondollar deficits and our $15 trillion (and counting) Federal Debt.
A “Grand Bargain” between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner,
which would have cut the deficit by $4 trillion
over 10 years, was close to happening, but never
did.
Here in Westchester, county government
is working, but with strained relations between
Republican County Executive Rob Astorino and
County Board democrats, led by Chairman Ken
Jenkins. Both sides have been debating the critical issue of county government: how much can
the county afford to spend and how much can be
cut before the lives of Westchester residents are
seriously impacted?
One issue that has garnished a lot of news
has been the proposal by the Astorino Administration to reduce the county subsidy for low
income residents to pay for child care. The proposal would increase the family contribution
from 25 percent of the total cost to 35 percent.
This would result in an increase to low income
families of about $1,400 per year, or about $30
per week. For a family earning $30,000, $30 per
week is significant.
Democrats on the County Board have argued that the Board of Legislators needs to
vote on the increase in child care contributions
and that Astorino agreed to fund the child care
program, as is, during last year’s budget agreement.
Astorino argues that there is not enough
funding for the program in this year’s budget to
keep the family subsidy at 25 percent.
“Action is needed now or the programs will
run out of money,” said Westchester Department of Social Services Commissioner Kevin

Hebrew Hospital Home Honors
Volunteer of the Year
HHH Volunteer of the Year Mary Newman
This week is National Nursing Home
Week, a week to celebrate all the staff, residents, family members and volunteers who
make a positive difference in the lives of nursing home residents throughout the nation. It is
a celebration, because these people make the
lives of residents a true journey — they ensure
that every day is an enjoyable one that will
bring smiles and happiness.
Mary Newman, 86, was honored at Hebrew Hospital Home (HHH) of Westchester’s
Fifth Annual Volunteer Luncheon for being
a loyal and dedicated volunteer at HHH, a
skilled nursing facility in Westchester County.
Her husband, a retired White Plains Policeman, was a resident at the home until he passed
away and, since then, Mary has been loyal to
the residents — she comes at least once a week
and is on call in case her help is needed.
“I love what I do,” said Newman, who has
lived in White Plains her whole life. “I help
feed the residents, bring them down for Mass
and sometimes just sit and speak with them.
I fit right in. I feel so comfortable here. Everyone is so willing to help and cares for the
residents and it’s so important.
“I know how scary of a process moving
one’s family member into a home is. I went
through it myself with my husband when he
got sick. He was a large man and I couldn’t
take care of him by myself. Once we got here,
we knew it was the best choice and the best
place to be.”

GRAND OPENING

By harrison Mayor Ron Belmont
I am excited to announce the opening of a
new establishment, coming soon, to downtown
Harrison.
DiCicco’s Food Market will be opening at
7 Halstead Ave., the current location of Food
City. Although it is sad to see a long established
business like Food City close its doors on June
3, I look forward to visiting DiCicco’s when it
opens in a few months. The store has a great
track record in neighboring municipalities and
is known for its friendly atmosphere. A company like DiCicco’s will do a lot to help revitalize
our downtown business district. This is wonderful news for Harrison and I welcome them with
open arms.
On Sunday, May 20, I had the pleasure
of tasting delicious samples of our local chefs’
specialties at the Friends of the Public Library
fundraiser, “A Taste of Harrison.” It was a beautiful day and more than 100 people came out to
support this very worthwhile event. All the proceeds will be used by The Friends of the Public
Library, a non-profit organization, to support the
Harrison Public Library.
Thank you to all who attended and special
thanks to all the contributing restaurants, as well
as to Ronnie Capasso for driving the van, allowing for safe and swift transportation to the participating venues.
A new opportunity for Harrison residents,
to ask questions and voice their concerns, will
be underway soon. Each Friday (with the exception of the last Friday of each month) I will
be having lunch between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m.
at different restaurants in Harrison, and would
like to sit down with residents to discuss any issues that may be important for the Town Board
to consider.
“Lunch with the Mayor” venues will change
from week to week and an advanced schedule
will appear in the Mayor’s Column, as well as
on the Town Scroll. Please feel free to come and
meet with me to discuss any questions you may
have.
Our first “Lunch with the Mayor” event will
be on Friday, June 1 at Al Dente Italian Trattoria,
located at 60 Halstead Ave. All residents of the
Town of Harrison are encouraged to attend.

New Immigration Law Hits Home
Marrisa Senteno
By John Gitlitz
“When I came to Mamaroneck, things were
much worse. Now they are a lot better. Immigrants are part of the fabric of our community.
They have jobs, their children go to school here.
They go to the library. That is what creates a
safe community, not just for the immigrants but
for all of us. But a new federal law called ‘Secure Communities’ threatens to take that away.
It treats immigrants as ‘others.’ It makes them
feel isolated and fearful and it weakens our community.”
This is what Marrisa Senteno, worker coordinator for the Hispanic Resource Center, told
the Local Summit on May 15 at the Nautilus
Diner on a panel on the local impact of new immigration laws. She was joined on the panel by
Vanessa Merton, professor of law at Pace University and director of their Immigration Justice
Law Clinic, and by Detective Sandra DiRuzza
of the Village of Mamaroneck Police Department.
Merton pointed out that today was a special
day because, on May 15, the law changed. The
federal government mandated that the “Secure
Communities” or “S-Com” law come into effect
in New York State, despite its having been previously rejected by Governor Cuomo.
Ostensibly, according to Merton, the law
purports to provide for no more than sharing
information between local, state and federal
agencies. When someone is taken into custody,
now his or her fingerprints and other identifying
data are shared with Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE), the federal agency charged
with enforcing immigration law. The official
aim is to identify the felons among those who
are present in the country illegally so that they
can be deported.
However, Merton said, the law is unlikely
to accomplish its stated aims. It is not that easy
to determine status. For those caught up in the
process — and one can be caught up for something as minor as a traffic violation — the consequences can be severe, harming immigrants
both undocumented and documented; even
citizens, their families and the communities in
which they live.
People detained under S-Com do not enjoy the protections many of us take for granted.
They are not entitled to counsel and between 60
and 70 percent lack the representation of an attorney. They are rarely eligible for bond. Once
detained, they can be sent almost anywhere in
the United States, often to distant, privately run
detention centers where conditions are poor.
Senteno and Merton both emphasized that
the ensuing insecurity makes immigrants fearful
of taking problems to the police, a fact which
leaves them vulnerable to all kinds of exploitation.
Vanessa Merton
According to Senteno, “Workers come to
us who have been robbed of their wages. They
come from every single sector, not just day laborers and domestics. The problem is huge.”
DiRuzza said that, when she deals with domestic violence, fear is a big issue. Part of what
she does is reach out to those involved, particularly victims.
“Reaching out is necessary to build a relationship,” said DiRuzza. “Often, the victims are
unaware of the law, find dealing with authorities daunting and are fearful of seeking help. We
want to keep our communities safe. We want the
victims to come forward and we know they are
fearful.”
Ann Spindel, who teaches English as a Second Language at the Don Bosco Center in Port
Chester, asked what happens to children whose
parents have been deported. Seteno noted that
“The problem is closer than we realize.” One in
four children in the United States today has a
parent at risk of removal. Some 50,000 children
have been transferred into foster care after their
parents have been deported. Five thousand have
been adopted because their immigrant parents
lost rights to their children.
Many in the audience inquired what we can
do. Merton pointed to the New York Dream Act,
which would make graduates of New York high
schools eligible for Tuition Assistance (TAP):
“The New York State Dream Act came close
to passage this year in Albany. It won’t create
a path to citizenship but it would be a powerful
symbol. Maybe we can get it next year.”
Others asked how our schools could contribute. Merton replied, “Teach everyone, immigrants and non-immigrants, about the real history of American immigration.” She had earlier
told the story of a client, detained as being illegally present, who turned out to be a citizen, a
fact of which he was unaware. “In the 1930s, the
United States forcibly evicted to Mexico over a
million persons. Many of those removed were
actually citizens, who had never lived in Mexico, and their descendants are citizens — even if
they, and we, don’t know it.”
Merton also added a cautionary note. “Tell
immigrant kids that no matter how frustrated
and tempted, don’t use fake documents. It’s the
one thing that won’t be forgiven. Even if the
law changes, it will still make you deportable.
Our whole immigration system is complex, convoluted, unworkable and cruel. It needs to be
‘Katrina’d,’ dismantled and rebuilt entirely.”
The Local Summit, which hosted the meeting, is an informal community council that tries
to make the community a better place to live for
everyone. Its regular monthly meetings are held
at 7:45 a.m. the second Tuesday of the month at
the Nautilus Diner on the Post Road in Mamaroneck.

Conservation of Birds of Old Fields
and Young Forests
Join the Bedford Audubon Society on
Wednesday, June 13 at 7:45 p.m. at Katonah Memorial House, located at 71 Bedford Rd. in Katonah, for a special presentation, “Conservation of
Birds of Old Fields and Young Forests,” by Dr.
Robert Askins.
Forests have been the focus of most conservation efforts in the northeastern United States.
Less attention has been directed at open habitats,
but these areas have a disproportionate number
of declining and endangered species. In New
England and New York, many of the bird species
that have shown persistent, long-term decreases
in abundance are associated with shrublands and
grasslands.
Shrubland species such as Brown Thrasher,
White-eyed Vireo, Blue-winged Warbler and Yellow-breasted Chat are primarily found on abandoned farmland or in forests that are recovering
from a major disturbance. They have declined
as open habitat areas in the region have been replaced with forest.
Is this a conservation problem or a “return
to normal” in a historically forested landscape?
Where did these species live before people
cleared the forest for farming? How can we sustain their populations as open habitats continue to
disappear? All of these issues will be addressed
in his presentation.
Askins is the Katherine Blunt Professor of
Biology at Connecticut College, where he teaches
courses in ecology, animal behavior, conservation
biology and ornithology. His research focuses on
the ecology and conservation of migratory birds
in both their northern breeding areas and tropical
wintering areas.

Social Security Column:
Questions and Answers
By Susan Sobel, Social Security District
Manager in Yonkers
Question:
Is it true that a person can own a home and
still be eligible for Supplemental Security Income
(SSI) benefits?
Answer:
Yes. A person who owns a home and lives
in that home can be eligible for SSI benefits. Although there is an asset limit for people to qualify
for SSI, some things don’t count toward that limit,
such as a house, a vehicle and some funds set aside
for burial expenses. To learn more about SSI and
the eligibility requirements, browse our booklet,
Supplemental Security Income, at SocialSecurity.
gov/pubs/11000.html.
Question:
I know you need to have limited resources to
receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI), but
what is considered a “resource”?
Answer:
Resources are things you own that you can
use for support. They include cash, real estate, personal belongings, bank accounts, stocks and bonds.
To be eligible for SSI, a person must have $2,000
or less in countable resources. (A married couple
must have $3,000 or less in countable resources.)
Not all of your resources count toward the SSI
resource limit. For example:
• The home you live in and the land it’s on do
not count;
• Your personal effects and household goods
do not count;
• Life insurance policies may not count, depending on their value;
• Your car usually does not count;
• Burial plots for you and members of your
immediate family do not count; and
• Up to $1,500 in burial funds for you and up
to $1,500 in burial funds for your spouse may not
count.
If you are blind or have a disability, some
items may not count if you plan to use them to
work or earn extra income.
You may also wish to read our material on
“resources” in the booklet, Understanding SSI, at
SocialSecurity.gov/ssi/text-understanding-ssi.htm.

8 New Practices Join CWPW
The network of regional Children’s and
Women’s Physicians of Westchester (CWPW)
medical offices continues to grow with the addition of eight new medical practices, bringing
the total number of CWPW affiliated practices
to 34, announced CWPW President Leonard
Newman, MD.
Children’s & Women’s Physicians of
Westchester (CWPW) is one of the largest pediatric medical practices in the region, consisting of more than 215 skilled physicians who
provide a wide-reaching system of primarycare and specialty-care services in both the inpatient and out-patient settings.
“Children’s & Women’s Physicians of
Westchester is committed to providing compre-
hensive inpatient and outpatient care to infants,
children and adolescents throughout the greater
New York Metropolitan area, extending from
New York City, throughout the Hudson Valley
and into parts of Connecticut,” said Newman.
“Our physicians are world leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of complex pediatric illnesses and we are pleased to welcome the eight
new affiliate medical practices into our CWPW
family.”
The new CWPW medical practices include
Gastrointestinal and Hepotabiliary Consultants
and Nephrology Associates of Westchester,
both located in Valhalla.

National Health Survey
Underway in Westchester
The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the most comprehensive survey of the health and nutritional
status of the U.S. population, got underway in
Westchester County beginning on May 23.
What is the National Health and Nutrition
Examination Survey? It is a unique program that
monitors the health and nutritional status of the
U.S. Population, a tool to assess the fitness level
of U.S. children and adolescents, a valuable resource for developing effective health policies
and programs and an opportunity to gain information about one’s health.
Each year, residents in 15 counties across
the nation have the chance to participate in the
latest NHANES, conducted by the National
Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), part of
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC).
“NHANES serves as the nation’s ‘health
check-up,’ going into communities to get health
information throughout the country,” said CDC
Director Thomas Frieden. “The survey is a
unique resource for health information and,
without it, we would lack important knowledge
about major health conditions.”
Public health officials, legislators and physicians use the information gathered in NHANES
to develop sound health policies, direct and design health programs and services and expand
the health knowledge for the nation. NHANES
captures data to identify and address health issues that will help everyone maintain independence and good health. In addition, national ref-
erences are produced and standardized growth
charts are created for pediatricians across the
country using NHANES data.
This year, NHANES will embark on a new
effort to increase attention to the importance
of health related fitness in youth in the United
States. This youth survey, called the National
Youth Fitness Survey (NYFS), will provide additional information with which to evaluate the
health and weight of children and adolescents.
Given the epidemic levels of childhood obesity
throughout the nation, results from this national
survey are extremely important.
Individuals selected for the NHANES program represent the U.S. population of all races/
ethnicities and all ages. Respondents first participate in a health interview conducted in the
respondent’s home followed by a health examination that takes place in one of three mobile
examination centers.
No medical care is provided directly in the
mobile examination center but a report on physical findings is given to each participant, along
with an explanation from survey medical staff.
The various tests and procedures depend upon
the age of the participant. All information collected in the surveys is kept strictly confidential
and privacy is protected by public law.
Residents will have an invitation-only opportunity to participate in either the NHANES
or the NYFS. Individuals who agree to participate will receive compensation for their time
and travel expenses.
Since its founding by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul in 1888, Saint
Joseph’s Medical Center has been meeting the health care needs of Yonkers and
surrounding communities. Located in Southwest Yonkers, Saint Joseph's Medical
Center consists of a 194-bed acute care teaching hospital and a 200-bed nursing
home and features comprehensive out-patient programs. It is also a sponsor of lowincome senior housing for frail elderly.
In response to new developments in medicine and the needs of the community,
Saint Joseph’s has grown dramatically over the years into a modern, progressive
medical center.
Today, Saint Joseph’s offers:
s An expanded Ambulatory Surgery Center

Sing We Enchanted Performs

Bronxville Women’s Club, located at 135 Midland Ave. in Bronxville, Sing We Enchanted, an
a cappella vocal ensemble, will perform a benefit concert, “A Night at the Opera.”
This benefit concert features members from
the Locrian String Quartet, pianist Gary Norden and the Sing We Enchanted ensemble. The
evening’s program opens with Henry Purcell’s
“Chaconne in g minor,” played by the Locrian
String Quartet, alongside wine and cheese accompaniment. The audience will then hear an
hour of entertaining opera arias and choruses by
Handel, Mozart, Purcell and others, followed by
Viennese desserts and coffee.
Sing We Enchanted, now in its 18th season,
has performed a cappella concerts in many venues across the tri-state area. Sing We Enchanted
typically presents thematic programs of Renaissance repertoire, American classics and holiday
selections and often performs “concerts for
causes.” Whatever the program, Sing We Enchanted is committed to entertaining audiences
with new and old a cappella musical works that
are not widely performed.
Featured Instrumentalists include violinists
Clare Detko and Heather Vogel, violist Dan Panner, cellist Michael Finckel and Norden. Sing
We Enchanted includes mezzo sopranos Artistic
Director Ellen Macdonald and Randi Alberino,
sopranos Nancee Adams-Taylor, Kate Ashby,

Oscar, Grammy and Emmy Award
Winner Paul Williams Visits Emelin
Paul Williams will be the special guest at
the Emelin’s film extra program ,which will
present the documentary “Paul Williams Still
Alive” on Sunday, June 3 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets
are $15.
Williams is an Oscar, Grammy and Golden
Globe winning Hall of Fame songwriter. “We’ve
Only Just Begun,” “Rainy Days and Mondays,”
“You and Me Against the World,” “An Old Fashioned Love Song,” “I Won’t Last a Day Without
You” and “Let Me Be The One” are among his
timeless standards.
“Paul Williams Still Alive” is both a rollicking pop-culture flashback, filled with great tele-
vision and performance clips, and the humorous
journey of an awkward documentarian and his
reluctant subject. Yet it ultimately evolves into
the touching tale of a man who has made peace
with the beast of fame and celebrity.
His songs have been recorded by such diverse musical icons as Elvis Presley, Frank
Sinatra, Willie Nelson, Ella Fitzgerald, David
Bowie, Ray Charles, R.E.M., Tony Bennett,
Sarah Vaughn, Johnny Mathis, Luther Vandross
and Kermit the Frog.
Emelin Theatre is located at 153 Library
Ln. in Mamaroneck. For more information or
tickets, call 914-698-0098 or visit Emelin.org.
CNR Grad School Announces New

A new Masters Degree program in Marriage
and Family Therapy will be offered by The College of New Rochelle (CNR) Graduate School
starting this fall.
The program is designed specifically to

family therapist. Upon successful completion
of the NYS license examination, graduates may
find employment in mental health clinics, community agencies and private practice.
This masters program has a flexible schedule offering students the opportunity to attend
college year-round (during fall, spring and summer sessions), thereby allowing degrees to be
earned in less than two years.
The Graduate School Master’s Degree in
Marriage and Family Therapy is a 45-credit program designed to prepare students to become
professionals in providing therapy to couples
and families of diverse backgrounds, ages and
needs.
According to CNR Graduate School Dean
Dr. Marie Ribarich, the new Master’s Degree in
Marriage and Family Therapy provides students
with a variety of courses and rich practicum experiences in which to develop their therapeutic
skills and their professional expertise.
Applications now are being accepted. For
more information, call 914-654-5309, e-mail the
Director of Graduate Admissions at [email protected]

Need a ‘Grand Bargain’
the child care center serves.
They are hard working parents who need
child care in order to go to work Monday to Friday. Some will have difficulty paying the extra
$30 to $50 per week in additional day care costs.
And as a member of the board, I do not want the
parents to pay more.
But as a homeowner and taxpayer in
Westchester, I do not want to pay any more
property taxes for county government — period.
With a $1.5 billion county budget, incoming
revenues are not the problem.
More than 4,000 county employees do
not pay a penny of their health insurance costs,
which means county government, and the taxpayers, pay $23,000 per year for a family plan
for a county employee.
Most of us who work in the private sector,
and Astorino, understand that most private employees pay 25, 50 or even 100 percent of their
health insurance costs. To ask the taxpayers to
pay for 100 percent of county employee’s health
insurance is both unfair and fiscally impossible.
Services like Child Care end up getting cut because too large of a portion of our tax dollars go
to salaries and benefits of employees.
A Grand Bargain could be reached that
would have democrats on the county board
agree to force union county employees to pay
10 percent, or more, of their health insurance
premiums. In exchange, Astorino would agree
to keep the child care subsidy as is and would
agree to fund other items, including the many
capital projects that are currently in dispute.
Could this happen? Yes. Should it happen?
Yes. Will it happen? Not likely.
The reason is more about politics than governing. We see dysfunctional politics in Washington, D.C., all the time — we can do better
here in Westchester.
Continued from Page 1
McGuire. “The process to change the family
contribution level will take about 60 to 90 days;
the sooner we get the higher contribution levels,
the better chance we have to maintain the program for the full year.”
Astorino vetoed legislation that would require board approval for the change: “In what
has become an unfortunate and familiar pattern,
your Honorable Board once again overreaches
and attempts to exert power and control, without
the requisite legal authority.”
The larger issue is how much Westchester
County can afford to pay low income families
for child care. Astorino, as seen through his actions, believes that county government and its
taxpayers needs a larger subsidy. Democrats on
the County Board, who pushed through a property tax reduction of two percent in this year’s
county budget, do not agree and oppose any cuts
to the county’s safety net.
After two years of cutting county government and keeping county property tax increases
at zero percent, Astorino is proposing painful
cuts to spending, including the child care subsidies and eliminating a county bus line in Port
Chester.
But after making the easier cuts in years
one and two, Astorino’s hands are tied on cutting the real portion of the county, or any local
government or school district, budget — salaries, pensions and health insurance costs.
And here is where a “Grand Bargain” between Astorino and Jenkins could come into
play.

“Sing Your Heart Out”
NRPL will host a “Sing Your Heart Out” culmination concert on Saturday, June 2 at 1:30 p.m.
in the Ossie Davis Theater.
The free performance will feature ensemble
and choral numbers by students who have been
attending “Sing Your Heart Out” voice lessons
at the library over the past several months. The
students, 55 years and older, have discovered
their voices and performance talents under the
guidance of Artist-in-Residence Eric Jennings,
a popular performer and lecturer in the southern
Westchester area. Jennings will accompany the
vocalists on the piano.
This program has been made possible by the
Friends of the NRPL. Donations will be accepted
at the door.
Friends’ Book Sale
The Friends of the NRPL will hold their
monthly book sale on Friday and Saturday, June
8 and 9, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the lobby. The
popular sale will include many books suitable for

coordinates the mini book sales with the assistance of other Friends’ volunteers. Money realized from book sales are used to underwrite the
Library’s extensive public programs.
The Friends of the NRPL bookstore is open
every Tuesday from 1 to 3 p.m. and Saturday from
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“Handel And His Singers”
“Handel and His Singers,” a classical concert, will be presented on Saturday, June 9 at 3
p.m. in the Ossie Davis Theater.
Tenor Richard Slade, music director of The
Sound Shore Chorale, will present an introduction
to the Divas and Divos of 18th century England
— the singers for whom Handel wrote his leading
roles. An array of accomplished soloists, as well
as pianist Diane Guernsey, will join Slade for this
dazzling program.
Slade is a versatile artist, equally at home on
concert and operatic stages. As a member of The
Western Wind, America’s pre-eminent a cappella
vocal ensemble, he tours extensively. As conductor, he is the Music Director of The Sound Shore
Chorale and the First Unitarian Society in Hastings. Mr. Slade received his BA from Yale University and his Masters in Music from New England

celebrate his memorial and Mama Jones arranged for another ceremony, held in Ossining
this Memorial Day.
Here’s Mama Jones’ touching story, in her
own words:
“My name is Sandra D. Jones, the proud
mother of the late Lance Corporal Craig L.
Wyche — sunrise, February 22, 1964; sunset,
October 23, 1983. There is an honor planned
for my son. The honor is set for May 28 in the
town of Ossining, with a street naming planned.
Craig’s entire family of brothers and sisters,
aunties and uncles and cousins will attend.
“This day is about Craig, and I sit up alone
late at night remembering how it happened, as
people all over this country who lost one of our
241 Marines on that day. Now all I have left are
his pictures and medals and awards, and my
memories.
“Craig was my third son, a football and basketball player and a wrestler. He loved music,
too. He loved his sisters and brothers, and my
mom.
“He went to school in Queens for a short
period, then back to Ossining High, where he
finished and graduated in 1982. While in school
in Queens he played ball, too. He was good.
His first nephew followed in his footsteps and
played ball as well.
“Craig’s first nephew, my oldest grandson,
told me that the reason he went into service was
because he looked up to his Uncle Craig for
what he did, and how he was a hero in his eyes.
Craig loved to be around his brothers and sisters,
around his family. This, for me, is such a bright
and warm feeling, yet a lonely one, too, knowing that it is because he is not here.
“There is a lonely hole in my heart. He was
a proud service man, earned his rank with praise
from the commander, who sent me his papers to
show that Craig was worthy of the rank. Looking through these papers I smile knowing that he
was proud of him.
“I have all my letters and cards from him.
My son was killed in his sleep, no way out, along
with most of his buddies. So, on May 28, that
hole will not close, but my family and I will remember Craig. My heart will smile for my son,
who made us proud. The last time I saw Craig, I
held him and laughed with him. It was after boot
camp the week of mother’s day, and he told me,
‘Mom, don’t say bye, I’ll be back before long.’
“He had plans like all of us do. He planned
to marry a young lady from a family we all knew
and liked. I loved my son and not a day goes by
that something doesn’t come to mind to make
me smile or, sometimes, to cry. Thank you to
my lady friends of the Gold Star Mothers, and
all my dear Beirut families, who have my back
when I need you.
“This day keeps Craig alive for me and
helps some who never knew him remember that
his sacrifice can never be forgotten. I want to
bring him out to the forefront once again.”
Before Mama Jones was visited by a Marine at her door, she watched TV, as all of us
did that day, and realized that her son was gone:
“I peeked over the staircase and looked at the
TV and saw the crater of the barracks,” she recalled.
Craig Wyche is buried at the National
Cemetery in Farmingdale, Long Island. He was
awarded the Purple Heart.
Thank you, Mama Jones, for your touching story and, more importantly, thanks to your
son for his service to our country. We will never
forget him.

British adventurers Richard Harpham and
Glenn Charles were welcomed with open arms
on the Yonkers Riverfront last weekend.
The two kayakers took a 500-mile trek
from Niagara Falls to the Statue of Liberty and
made a stop in Yonkers, where they were welcomed by members of the Yonkers Paddling and
Rowing Club, Beczak Environmental Education
Center and city and county officials.
Known as the “New York State’s Spare
Seat Kayak Expedition,” New York State’s Division of Tourism — I LOVE NEW YORK —
invited these world-renowned kayakers to make
the trek.
Beczak Executive Director Cliff Schneider
introduced the Jammin’ Divas, who performed
a song about the Hudson River. Deputy County
Executive Kevin J. Plunkett welcomed the kayaker’s to Westchester on behalf of County Executive Robert P. Astorino. Yonkers City Council
President Chuck Lesnick gave an official welcome to Yonkers.
Harpham and Charles took the weekend
resting, camping on the Beczak grounds. Like
kids in a candy store, they couldn’t wait to get
some of the Yonkers Kayaking Club’s historic
kayaks into the water.

Harpham and Charles kept of the trek, as well as

‘Iron Horse’ to the Adirondacks and 1000 Acres Ranch Resort
With gas prices rising each week, there’s
an alternate way to enjoy a getaway vacation
weekend in the Adirondacks.
For the first time in decades, visitors can
take the “Iron Horse” to get to the horses…
the horses of 1000 Acres Ranch Resort in the
Adirondacks. The new Saratoga and North
Creek Railway has established daily train service, Thursdays through Mondays, from New
York City and Saratoga Springs to 1000 Acres
Ranch, the famous Adirondack resort located
alongside the Hudson River.
The new rail service, recently refurbished,
operates from Saratoga Springs to North Creek
and has a station on site
at 1000 Acres for passengers to board in either direction. Departures from
Saratoga Springs include
the special Adirondack
Weekend Getaway service.
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Amtrak’s
train, The Adirondack,
departs New York City
at 8:15 a.m., arriving in
Saratoga Springs before
noon, and journeys north
on the Saratoga and North
Creek route to 1000 Acres
for an arrival at 1:41 p.m.
Westchester
residents
may board Amtrak trains
at both Yonkers and
Croton-Harmon stations;
local service on MetroNorth’s Hudson Line provides connecting rail to
both Amtrak stations for
numerous Westchester locations, such as Hastings,
Dobbs Ferry, Irvington,
Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow, Ossining, Cortlandt and Peekskill.
The train route takes in scenic vistas along
the lower Hudson River, including West Point,
historic mansions and homesteads and a wide
variety of architecturally impressive bridges.
The Upper Hudson route, north of Saratoga,
covers pristine lands within the Adirondack
Park, together making for a unique and enjoyable trip even before arriving at the resort.
1000 Acres Ranch Resort offers ranch
guests an extensive horseback riding program,
led by experienced wranglers, over beautiful trails winding through the foothills of the
Adirondack Mountains; water sports, including canoeing and kayaking on the adjacent
and pristine Hudson River; delicious meals
with homemade breads and pies, served three
times daily in a family style format, along with
weekly Western style barbeques; comfortable
accommodations with rustic charm and all the
modern conveniences; outdoor and indoor pool
and Jacuzzi; tennis, softball and basketball and
volleyball courts; and other amenities.
“Our family has hosted guests from everywhere over the last 50 plus years,” said
1000 Acres Owner and Operator Jack Arehart.
“We’re excited about the new train service,
which brings you right to our front door and
will bring a new generation of guests to experience our country hospitality.”
1000 Acres is also a short ride from Lake
George Village, with the many and varied entertainment options available; numerous shopping outlet stores; and lake excursions.

congratulated the Westchester women, who received hands on work experience and guidance
about succeeding in the work place from their local professional women mentors.
“I like to think that this program gives each
of our mentees an opportunity, that little extra
wonderful beginning, so that they can be the hero
of their own story,” said Judge Judy.
County Executive Robert P. Astorino praised
the program, saying, “I saw first-hand how great
this program is, as we had a mentee work in
the county’s Communications Office this year.
Through this program, young women get real
on-the-job training. Programs such as this inspire
and the county’s Office for Women is pleased to
continue to provide support for Judge Judy’s initiative.”
Mentees have been working weekly with
their mentors since last October, gaining work
experience and valuable lessons in female leadership. Work experience was supplemented with
monthly workshops on such things as budgeting
money, business attire, honesty and integrity, well
being, dining etiquette, social responsibility and
advocacy. Life skills workshops were underwritten by Merrill Lynch, Bloomingdales, MasterCard, Dr. Ann Engelland, the Ritz Carlton, Judith
Re, College of Westchester and Pace University
School of Law.
