  • Rye Brook seniors take to the water and row

    The sun was high in the sky, the harbor was placid and eight seniors between the ages of 78 and 96 were in the middle of Glen Island Harbor in New Rochelle on Tuesday, Sept. 20 learning how to row as a team.

    The Atria residents were all accustomed to rowing, except their experience was limited to a once-a-week class on an indoor machine.

  • Stuffed tortillas stuff local contestants
    A crowd of around 200 people came to the parking lot across from 110 Adee St. and surrounded three tables while about 15 men sat, eagerly waiting for plates filled with chicken and steak tacos to be placed in front of them. Some piled salsa onto their soft tortillas, others preferred to keep their food plain.  No records were shattered, but two men did stuff 28 tacos down their throat in 20 minutes for Salsa Picante’s second Tacos Tonight Contest on Thursday, Sept. 15.

  • Why would the idea of building another school not be a good idea? As a recent graduate from Port Chester High School, I’ve experienced the horror of walking down those halls. With only four minutes to get to class, it was a race against the clock to make it before the bell. It was like being at the Olympics weaving through all the kids standing in the middle of the halls.
  • The following list of hopeful changes and suggestions to the amnesty program was presented by me to the Port Chester Board of Trustees at their Sept. 18 meeting. Our mayor said the code department is working on some changes and will make a report at the next meeting. Let’s pray that the changes will be very beneficial to all of the taxpayers of Port Chester.
  • On Sept. 10 of last week, the Baby Boomers of Grant Street lost our·last Grant Street "mom." Elna Numme Barrese was not only a close friend, but a big sister in many ways. She was in the club of raising all of us overlooking Abendroth Park (which was our "day camp" in the summer), but she joined all of the other moms on our blessed street by participating in the mothering of us all. 

  • The Taxpayer Alliance Group not only welcomed but fully expected a response to our previous two letters to the editor of the Westmore News. Whether our opponents, like Mr. Reis, or any of the others who subscribe to the spend at all cost and are friends of a few members of this current Board of Education, realize it or not, they unwittingly further our purpose.

    Ketcham if you can, and Port Chester did, digging their way out of a 14-0 first half hole to upset Roy C. Ketcham 15-14 away last Saturday.

  • Soccer Rams win two games in a row

    Veteran Rams soccer coach John Cafaldo keeps wondering which one of his teams will show up—the club that shut out Clarkstown North 5-0 last Friday (9/16) at home or the team that beat Fox Lane 5-2 at home Tuesday (9/20) after reverting to type and nearly blowing an early two-point lead as they did against John Jay-East Fishkill and Roy C. Ketcham early in the season.

  • 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.

  • Everyone loves pizza

    Of the 123 restaurants currently open in Port Chester and Rye Brook, 21 serve pizza. That’s 17 percent of all the eateries in the two villages, that total number in fact having fallen by eight since this time last year. Besides the pizzerias and Italian restaurants that also make pizza, the two Irish/American pub/restaurants—Davy Byrnes and McShane’s—are on that list as is The Clydesdale Pub & Grill—dubbed “an American bar & grill with an English twist”—and Härth in the Hilton Westchester. The latter two both have wood-burning ovens.

  • New options, but outdoor eating spots, now at 36, down a few from last year

    The number of Port Chester and Rye Brook restaurants offering outdoor eating has decreased by three from last year. However, at least one new eatery with a lovely outdoor deck will be opening before the end of the summer to replace one that closed last year. Assuming that occurs, the number will rise from the current 36 to 37.
