  • P.C. Board of Ed votes to approve $78.66M bond recommendation

    It’s been a long two months for the Bond Advisory Committee (BAC), and now the group can disband because the Port Chester Board of Education voted unanimously to approve their recommendation for a $78.66 million bond during their Tuesday, Nov. 29 meeting. 

  • Bobcat sighted in Rye Brook
    A Rye Brook resident’s son pointed out a large cat to his father that was on the hillside behind their home on Lincoln Avenue around 7:45 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 28. The cat was about four feet long from its head to its tail, had furry pointed ears, a short tail and spotted rear legs and belly, similar to that of a bobcat, according to homeowner Frank Drazka. Drazka quickly snapped a photo and reported the sighting to Rye Brook police.
  • Learning the language of computers at the library
    Anyone over the age of 14 was given the opportunity to learn another language, but this dialect isn’t generally spoken out loud. The Port Chester-Rye Brook Public Library offered an outlet through their Coding for Teens class for anyone interested in learning more about how to create online things from scratch. Every Wednesday for six weeks, eight Port Chester students got together to learn how to make their own personalized website.

  • Pleasantville blows out Lady Rams in regular season opener at home

    Nobody said it was going to be easy. But it doesn't have to be as hard as the Lady Rams basketball team made it look or as unpleasant as it was during the regular season opener Tuesday, Nov. 29 against Pleasantville.

  • Time traveling with T&F successes stretching from past to present

    It was during a training break in what they call the areas and stadiums in Port Chester Track & Field (T&F) circles at the high school Monday and veteran P.C. long distance running coach Hank Birdsall was doing some conversational time traveling in discussing the school's past, present and future where running is concerned.

  • Hoop Rams beat PV 55-30 in pre-season scrimmage

    They didn't know what hit them.

    Putnam Valley came into Port Chester on Monday, Nov. 28 with a quartet of All-State caliber wrestlers and a pre-season rating as the second-ranked wrestling school in Division Two.
  • Wiley, Aldair head grid Rams honor roll of players earning post-season awards
    It was the end of the line for the over-achieving Port Chester High School football Rams when they beat traditional rival Mamaroneck 23-0 Nov. 3 to wind down a solid 6-4 winning season. The turnaround season included back-to-back loser's bracket playoff wins over Mount Vernon, White Plains and Mamaroneck and saw P.C. make the playoffs for the first time since an opening round loss to Poughkeepsie in 2002. 
  • Basketball Lady Rams’ final cuts add up to improved roster in flux

    Breaking up is hard to do at any time in your life, but especially in high school when you are on the verge of adulthood but the teen years are not yet over and you are not quite mature enough chronologically to deal with all you have to deal with no matter how grown up you think you are mentally and physically when it comes to life experience. And that even applies to sports. Especially when reality checks come into play involving hard choices.

  • Hoop Rams practicing extra hard with eye on a turnaround season
    They have paid their dues. They are lean and mean. They are made up of a solid senior nucleus built around six veteran players who are tired of losing and ready to come of age.
  • Ex-skimeister & PCHS athlete Zach Taylor returns to alma mater as a football coach

    The skimeister is back.

    Zach Taylor, one of Port Chester's best all-around high school student athletes, was the best skier in Westchester's ultra-competitive Section One and made the All-Section and All-State ski teams even though P.C. didn't have a team of its own.
  • Bumper crop of wannabe wrestlers turn out to help Rams defend title

    While basketball holds center court on the Port Chester High School Fall/Winter sports schedule, bowling, boys’ swimming and the indoor Track & Field team are also among the Rams and Lady Rams teams that began practice this week. Out of all the P.C. teams involved, the wrestling Rams are the only ones defending a league title, the first the grapplers have won in the past nine years—and they won it in the first year former Rye and Princeton wrestler Tom Josephson, a P.C. High School teacher, coached them along with his son, Declan, a former Ram All-American wrestler, as his assistant.

  • Basketball Lady Rams open practice that includes addition by subtraction

    It was only the first day of Lady Rams basketball practice, cuts had yet to be made and the varsity wannabes were taking their shots at making the team, even those firing blanks, but newbie coach London Reyes was already in mid-season form, coaching like the sectional championships hung on his every word, his intensity almost willing his young listeners to absorb the hoops wisdom he was preaching, or trying to, until the message became almost ingrained in the moves they were making this past Monday in the PCHS gym.

  • Local hoops star makes good in return as coach of the Rams
    If the so-called suicides didn't come close to killing you, the glide steps brought you a step closer to the living end. If that didn't work, sprinting four laps around the Port Chester High School gym Monday provided another gasping-for-air sequence that left candidates for the varsity basketball team wondering whether the torture was ever going to end.

  • Quarter century-old Italian staple moves to bright new quarters
    T&J, what can I say? After 26 years, it’s a staple in the Port Chester/Rye Brook community. And now that the Italian restaurant known for its delicious Neapolitan family recipes, traditional and gourmet pizza, homemade pasta and warm hospitality has moved a block away to spanking new quarters in a newly constructed building with twice the space, it is attracting a commensurate size crowd. Many are now coming out to eat rather than settling for takeout from the old place because they didn’t want to wait for a table.
  • New batch of eateries opening

    Another batch of restaurants that has been in the works for some time is finally coming to fruition while the conversion of a closed restaurant into a new one has just surfaced. 

    In Port Chester, T&J Restaurant & Pizzeria has just completed its move from 227 Westchester Ave. to much larger quarters with an outdoor patio on the ground floor of the brand new attractive office building at 10 Pearl St. constructed by Dominick Neri, president and CEO of Neri’s Bakery Products. 
  • Coyote Flaco still a Mexican gem after 25 years in Port Chester

    There are now nine Mexican restaurants in Port Chester, but only a few have the longevity of Coyote Flaco, which will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in December.

    It doesn’t look much different from the outside than it did 25 years ago, but tiny Coyote Flaco, located at 115 Midland Ave., has grown over the years, from a seating capacity of 20 to 30 inside and doubling from 25 to about 50 on the outside patio.

  • Port Chester resident recognized as Mount Rushmore’s chief carver

    The only classically trained stone carver in the tradition of Michelangelo who worked on Mount Rushmore wasn’t officially named the South Dakota monument’s chief carver until almost 50 years after his death.

    Luigi Del Bianco was a mystery to his grandson Lou, who only knew his grandfather for five or six years before he died. 
  • Salvation Army rings in the holiday season

    Port Chester resident Dakota Davis stands on the sidewalk on Westchester Avenue near its intersection with North Main Street and rings a bell to collect donations for the Salvation Army. Many of these bell ringers can be seen on sidewalks and in front of businesses during the holidays.

  • Bottling the spirit of New York

    Two local brewery owners prefer to fly under the radar, which is why their Port Chester base doesn’t even have a sign above the door.

    Noah Braunstein, 32, and Yoni Rabino, 31, of Neversink Spirits at 33 New Broad St. grew up with fond childhood memories of apple picking in nearby orchards. Add in the love for traditional European fruit brandy and eau de vie (clear, colorless fruit brandy translated to “water of life”) combined with two backgrounds in science from McGill and Wesleyan universities, and Neversink Spirits was born.
