Fox Lane Youth Lacrosse Participates in Wounded Warrior Tourney

On Sunday, November 9, 2014, Fox Lane Youth Lacrosse teams participated in the No Man Down charity lacrosse tournament held at Byram Hills High School to raise money to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.  The tournament organizers presented a check for $50,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project.

The participants in the tournament also heard a moving speech by Adam Silva, a representative of the Wounded Warrior Project to create awareness among middle and high school athletes to the unseen sacrifices being made by fellow Americans just a few years older than themselves.

Wanted: Mount Kisco Parking Enforcement Officer 35K to 40K Plus ?

On October 9, 2014, the Village of Mount Kisco posted a job opening for a Parking Enforcement Officer with a salary of $35,000 to $40,000 (see link below).  Of course, this position is available because of the second case of a PEO stealing thousands of dollars in quarters from Mount Kisco and under the nose of Mayor Cindrich.

In September, Jeff Daday admitted to taking $89,000 over five years emptying parking meters in Mount Kisco and depositing them at his account at People’s United Savings Bank on Moger Avenue in Mount Kisco.  Didn’t that look suspicious?

Of course, in 2005, another officer, Jason Berke, a parking enforcement officer pleaded guilty to stealing $30,000 worth of coins (it was probably much more but $30,000 was part of the plea) cashing them in at Coinstar machines at supermarkets.  Didn’t that look suspicious?

Luckily, we have many honest Parking Enforcement Officers in Mount Kisco.  It appears to be easy to take quarters under the administration of Mayor Cindrich where there are very few permanent supervisory employees, including an interim police chief.

Mount Kisco Sports Buys 1897 Building

Mount Kisco Sports purchased the historic building at 11-13 E. Main Street next to Bicycle World.

Elon Tile is currently in the storefront but appears to be moving out.

Mount Kisco Sports, which has been on S. Moger Avenue since the 1990s and sells to Mount Kisco and Bedford sports teams, may be moving or expanding.

Nevertheless, it is an opportunity to renovate some Mount Kisco storefronts.

Mount Kisco man charged with Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated

From the New York State Police

“On October 10, 2014 at approximately 11:55 p.m., New York State Police from the Brewster barracks charged Joel A. Romero-Lopez, 28 years old, of Mount Kisco, New York, with Aggravated Unlicensed Operation 1st Degree, a Class E Felony, and Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated, a Misdemeanor. Romero-Lopez was charged with Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated after providing police with a breath sample containing a blood alcohol content greater than .18%.

Romero-Lopez was stopped by the Village of Brewster Police for failing to stop at a stop sign. The Village of Brewster requested State Police assistance with the investigation that revealed Romero-Lopez was intoxicated. It was also determined that he was driving with a suspended driver’s license due to previously being charged with a DWI related offense.

Romero-Lopez provided a breath sample that yielded a Blood Alcohol Content of .21%, more than two times the legal limit of intoxication. He was arraigned before the Village of Brewster Justice Court and remanded to the Putnam County Jail in lieu of $1,000 cash bail. He is scheduled to reappear in court on October 15, 2014.”

Mount Kisco Maroons Win Youth League Championship

The Mount Kisco Maroons won the Scarsdale Recreation Youth Football League on Sunday night under the lights at White Plains High School with a 28-8 victory over the Pelham Pelicans. The Maroons, made up of fifth and sixth graders, went into the championship game without allowing an opponent to score a single point.

In the championship game, the offense did not click immediately and the Maroons trailed 8-0. With a strong defense and four touchdowns by Mount Kisco’s Jayden Cruz, the Maroons pulled away and never looked back.

In addition to playing well and winning the championship in 2012, the players developed their football skills and sportsmanship. The Maroons were coached by Stanley Greene and Mike McLoughlin and a staff that includes Tom Jobin, James Brooks, Ken Oliveri, Jay Etzel, Leon Suetter, Kevin O’Shea and Brian Sullivan.

St. Francis Sponsors Aid Drive for Hurricane Sandy Victims

If you have been feeling the need to do something, anything, for those suffering the effects of Hurricane Sandy, some parishioners of St. Francis of Assisi Church in Mount Kisco are putting together an effort to help those in Staten Island, Breezy Point and the Rockaways.

The area surrounding the parish of Our Lady Queen of Peace, New Dorp, Staten Island, one of the parishes at which Father Bill Damroth served, has been hit especially hard. Rosalie Scala, a parishioner there, has provided a list of items that would be very helpful:

·Non-perishable foods and beverages – remember they do not have electricity
·Heavy Duty Battery-Operated Flashlights and Batteries
·Contractor size heavy garbage bags
·Shovels
·Mops
·Rubber gloves
·Bleach, Lysol, antibacterial cleaning products
·Purel
·Air Filtering Masks
·Socks – tube socks are fine
·First Aid Kits – especially peroxide and antiseptics

A member of St. Francis, Tim O’Malley, has learned of a collection being made for Breezy Point and the Rockaways via the Aisling Community Center located in Yonkers. They need:

·Diapers
·Baby Wipes
·Blankets
·Towels
·Clothes
·Non-Perishable Food
·Toiletries
·Water

If you have, or can purchase, any of these items, please drop them off at the rear entrance of the St. Francis of Assisi Rectory, Dakin Avenue entrance, on Tuesday, Nov. 6 from 3:00-5:00 pm and 7:00-9:00 pm. If you are unable to make those times or if you would rather donate cash/check for us to make purchases for you, please contact Joann Spolzino at 914-666-7826 or joann.spolzino@verizon.net.

Lastly, any one who can drive their cars to Staten Island to deliver these donations would be appreciated. The goal is to get the victims supplies on Thursday afternoon.
