I just felt the need to respond to the letter in last week’s
Westmore News entitled “Lyon Park Concert Schedule Disappointing.” I want to
let everyone know how the committee works.
Thank you to Hope Klein for all her hard work in making sure the
Port Chester-Town of Rye, Rye Brook fireworks program was a success. Even
though she ran into several obstacles, she managed to put a beautiful program
I am sad to see that some of my favorite local groups are no
longer on the Lyon Park concert schedule. How do they pick these bands? Does a
committee watch videos of them or go see them perform? Billy and the Showmen

in Port Chester knows Goldie Solomon?
A very appropriate but uncommon (locally) thing happened to Blind
Brook parent Daniel Berger and the 224 people who signed the petition
denouncing the Blind Brook School Board for eliminating the position of Director
I have spent the past few weeks digesting what has happened in
the Blind Brook school district and have some thoughts I would like to share as
a taxpayer and parent in the district.
