While this storm will cause damage, elected officials are trying to out-caution each other. New York Governor Cuomo shut down the subways on Sunday night at 7:00 pm. Sensing he was losing the battle and realizing he had no subways to shut down, Connecticut Governor Malloy ordered highways to be shut down. Fearing the worst, and running out of cautionary measures, New York City Mayor Bloomberg ordered everyone to stay at home AND UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES DRINK ANY LARGE SODAS OR SUGARY BEVERAGES.
Thank you for Eduardo’s Restaurant for providing us with this beautiful flower garden this summer. Thankfully, the soup-tasting chef does not have seasonal allergies.
Fox Lane and their fans wore black as part of a planned black out. Horace Greeley and their fans wore white as part of a planned white out.
Fox Lane’s strong defense, however, caused Greeley’s offense to brown out by holding them to three points for the night. Fox Lane’s defense line was powerful and led the defense.
On the other side of the ball, Fox Lane’s offensive line open holes for Chris Johnson and Chris Manjuck, who each ran for about 100 yards on the night and together accounted for three touchdowns.
On Tuesday in Mount Kisco, there was a moving ceremony to remember those lost in the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. Last year, the memorial, two slabs of black granite symbolizing the World Trade Center towers installed in the middle of a pentangular pool to memorialize the victims of the attack on the Pentagon, was built and dedicated by the Mount Kisco Fire Department. Several hundred village residents and guests attended the memorial ceremony to remember the day we should never forget.
The stage and the area in front of the stage was occupied by members of the Mount Kisco Fire Department and other Mount Kisco first responders, members of the American Legion, and the Mount Kisco Ancients Fife & Drum Corps.
Mount Kisco Firefighter Paul Felice asked the crowd to remember the 343 brave firefighters that were killed trying to rescue others. As Assemblyman Robert Castelli noted, those firefighters, along with brave first responders from the police department and emergency medical services, were killed rushing in to buildings as many were rushing out. County Legislator made several memorable comments and noted that 109 Westchester residents were killed in the attacks. Comments were also added by State Senator Greg Ball who noted how everyone came together after the attacks.
The final remarks were delivered by Father William Damroth, from St. Francis of Assisi Church in Mount Kisco. Father Bill shared some personal stories about sharing masses with firefighters and consoling those who lost loved ones as a priest and the son of a fire fighter.
The Mount Kisco Fire Department is hosting its annual memorial service at Mount Kisco’s 9/11 Memorial (north of the Mount Kisco Library) on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 6:00 p.m. The Mount Kisco Fire Department urges residents to attend to remember the losses we said we would never forget.
In an email from Jere Hochman, Superintendent of Bedford Central Schools, he writes:
Tuesday, September 11, marks the 11th anniversary of the attacks on America in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania which resulted in the loss of lives; loss of friends, colleagues, family members. Firefighters, EMS workers, police, and volunteers sacrificed their lives and saved other’s lives that day. While this is history to be taught to our youngest children and remembered by young adults and all of us, we take time to remember – and to thank those who served.
Nevertheless, the Fox Lane Middle School is holding a curriculum night for 6th grade students that evening creating a conflict for parents.
Labor Day marks the end of summer. A special thanks to the pool director, pool supervisor and lifeguards. Let’s also remember the swim team and all of their accomplishments.
The Mount Kisco Little League extended its spring season with several summer travel teams. While, for some of the teams, wins did not outnumber losses, the boys played hard and had a lot of fun. The team pictured below, was the 10-year olds’ team coached by Alex Kozersky.

The Mount Kisco Elementary School, ending it 100th year, held a moving up ceremony for its 5th graders going to Fox Lane Middle School. The ceremony hosted by Principal Sue Ostrofsky allowed each of the students to speak.
Principal Ostrofsky asked the students to appreciate everything they have including their family, friends, health and opportunities. She also asked the students to appreciate their education, school and teachers that open the doors to their future. Most importantly, Principal Ostrofsky asked the students to appreciate themselves.
Congratulations to the students of MKES.
