If it wasnt for all the media hype, soccer would not even be popular. Next, we will be paying forRead More viewing soccer on our already over charged cable bill that places a surcharge on sports casting. Nice isnt it for those who have no interest in sports what so ever!

Replace "Cheer" with Marching Band...talent. difficult routines. practice a lot. Yep. IsRead More Marching Band a sport? Nope. Neither is cheerleading. Nobody is saying cheerleading is not athletic, or whatever. But that doesn't make it a sport...

Who will cheer them on? Will there be cheerleaders for the cheerleaders?

Parents ruin sports..
sportsnut July 14, 2014 at 07:39 am
Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.

I could never understand why so many worship the NFL including the low class\no class players. TheRead More gladiator mentality sees people knowing more about player statistics then those who are supposed to represent them in congress and the real problems in the world. Is it any wonder as to why the country is in rapid moral rot and decline?

I agree with New York Patriot - and how about getting what you post comprehensive - since youRead More mentioned the NHL teams that our local area Olympians are affiliated with, how about mentioning that Ryan Callahan is with the NY Rangers. The daily Bayside-Douglaston Patch emailed newsletter needs to be updated on a daily basis. Right now the I receive the identical email every day. Enough with the meatball soup already!

Hi, Randy. We have warned people about the child with measles who went to the mall on Patch and onRead More our Facebook pages. As for curling, it's one of my family's favorite Olympic sports, because you can do it in street shoes with a broom!

I've heard great things about the LEAP program. WIth the lack of other academic enrichment in theRead More schools, programs like this are necessary for this kids who need more than what the schools can give in the class. Theater and music do provide this. Theater is a subject of the English Language Arts (think Shakespeare and Tennessee Williams). Reading and interpretation of what is read is required. Music goes very well with math, especially when reading music is involved because there are notes to be understand and counted out (whole notes, quartes, etcetera). It says here that Mr. Urbanowicz said the district needed to reach out to its representatives on the state Legislature and plead with them to help get the funding restored. Did or did not the District actually reach out to Mr. Ball and Ms. Galef, or are they just realizing that they needed to do that? Is there a plan B in place if this grant doesn't go through? If not, there should've been. Programs like this, especially those that involve academic enrichment, are always going to be the first to go. Since gifted education is not mandated by the state of New York, any child that is above grade level is not going to get what he or she needs, either in class or in after school programs unless the school district is wealthy or has lots of grant money coming in.
Patrick D. May 4, 2013 at 05:20 am
I agree with Jo. Lets take the plan right out of the Yonkers playbook. They seem to cry every yearRead More about having to cut programs when state and federal funding gets slashed. The point I do get Jo is that the tax money was already paid, its noble to think that our tax money will go to the students in our district but sadly its most likely not. I appreciate what teachers do, in fact I think their salaries are justified. Its not easy to teach in an inner urban district. Drive around the high school after dismissal and well, I don't need to say more. Success in education comes from support and discipline at home and nothing I see says that there's all that much happening. Where I work, I never see the amount of police cars around their high school like I do in Peekskill.
Scott Tabone May 4, 2013 at 01:25 pm
The LEAP program is a truly wonderful staple of the middle school culture. It affords students theRead More opportunity to receive extra academic support in the areas of ELA, Math, Science and/or Social Studies, as well as gives them the chance to experience enrichment classes ranging in everything from working in the middle school sustainable garden, designing technology as young engineers, practicing the art of yoga, working with local police in a youth police program, and learning mediation skills as Peekskill Peacemakers, to name a few. The program has additional literacy support classes for developing readers as well. All in all, hundreds of students benefit from this one-entirely-grant-funded program. I hope for the sake of the students who enjoy the program and for the teachers and administrators who work to make it successful, the grant is renewed by the state and awarded back to the middle school.

You can figure it out. Take a ride through the park on any given day and count the kids you seeRead More playing baseball (usually 0). Then count the kids you see playing soccer (between the tennis courts near administration building and Torphy field its usually 25-75 kids). With the elemnetary schools going from 11% to 65% Hispanic in ten years many of Peekskill's parents aren't from America (or even legal immigrants) and could not care less about getting their kids in Little League. Its the same reason the 4th of July parade is dead and election turnouts are miniscule
