Just saw a shooting at Exit 11

It happened right in front of me. Police shot a man holding a knife. I don't want to say any more right now about what I saw, it will be all over the news I'm certain. I don't know if the guy survived or not. Happened half an hour ago. I'm going to contact BCPD and give my statement.

Beacon in the Delta "Sky" magazine

I was looking at the Delta "Sky" magazine on a flight Friday and saw that Beacon was one of 10 featured locations in an article about places "on the water" (I think that's how it was framed) for New York city visitors to consider.  City Island, West Point, and Rhinebeck? were included with the ten (Cold Spring wasn't).  I'm not sure if it was the April or May issue.  Beacon seems to be popular in these "list" kind of articles.

Conversation with my neighbor about a developer overstepping his bounds

My neighbor, Judith Vanderhoef, approached me just now walking my kids home from school and I promised I'd get the word out so there's more awareness:

She is being bothered by a developer, Rodney Weber.

He is developing the two large parcels on South Avenue.

He added a third property to be developed, behind the two large parcels, that is accessed by an old strip of trail, running from Sargent Avenue. I think it dates to the days of the Sargent…

Free CarFax reports

Last month I was searching for a used car and used CarFax to get a vehicle history report.  The price for one report was $40, but I thought the odds of selecting the first used car we came across was not high, so I purchased 5 CarFax reports for $50.  Well, we got the first car, and I now have 4 CarFax reports that have to be used within the next month.  If you are in need of a report, send me the VIN, and I'll get the report for you.  Whatever you want to give me in return is up to you, but…

When I first started this contest several years ago, you folks loved it. It went on hiatus but is back now.

Kids shoveling snow on Wolcott Ave.

Really surprised. Three boys came by to offer to shovel my driveway and sidewalk on Wolcott Ave. between Judson and Prospect at 1 PM. Paid them $50 and discovered after the fact that did not do the sidewalk as promised. Won't make that mistake twice. Out to shovel I go.
