I didn't know there were so many people left in Guatemala. Many seem to be right here. I am not aRead More fan of the Peace Corps. I think they use kids who are vulnerable - kids looking for self -worth. They send them to places with disease and danger. Girls get abused on these trips more than people realize.

What a fantastic story. I'm a roofing contractor in Manchester NHRead More (http://www.olympicroofing.com/manchester-nh-roofing), and we heard all about Chuck and his efforts. We're currently planning a similar promotion where we will "Walk for Roofs" for Hurricane Sandy relief for NY and NJ.

The Brady girls, Lauren & Caitlin, are to be commended for their leadership, courage andRead More dedication. I am so proud of them, as I am of my daughter Lauren Shortt and her beautiful tribute to her precious sister Cait Chivonne. The support we have seen through donations at Curls for Cait is yet another fine example of the magnificent Peekskill-Cortlandt community of which we are a part. Looking forward to wonderful success on August 17th!

The Design of the Gazebo does not fit in with the downtown look. I do not know how it was approvedRead More in the frist place. If you cannot put seats or benches in it, what is the purpose of it? It is just a large structure now with NO use.

Anyone who "volunteers" to do this kind of work is a sucker in my book. Here's why: theRead More city of Peekskill (or rather, the Corrupto-crats who run it) obtains many millions of dollars from local taxpayers as well as those in surrounding communities, the State and the Federal government. This money is used mainly to keep said Corrupto-crats and their compadres in office and to pay their extortionate salaries and benefits. Jason Angell, the BID director gets something like $25K per year for his part time job. A job for which "there is no reward for excellence and no penalty for failure." In short, there are any number of people with such lucrative positions who work in every department, who could and should be doing this work. Except maybe their unions won't let them. Or maybe they're just too lazy and/or incompetent. So please, before you volunteers go patting yourselves on the back for a job well done, consider how you are actually making things worse.

I don't think the gazebo is an anchor for downtown. The size of it looks misplaced where it is.Read More People can volunteer where they think they will be useful but I think for the most part city projects should come from the taxes that are collected and not use the taxes saved by the volunteers to be used to hire another consultant.

St. Peter's is such a warm, happy place with great people always on the lookout for opportunities toRead More serve their neighbors. I live in NYC and am always happy to worship there when I am in town. If you feel like you could use some community in your life, go visit St. Peter's on a Sunday morning!

All three girls were Windward students, but Zach was close with Lily. Very thankful to MatthewRead More Badger and the founders of the Lily Sarah Grace fund. They have not only created a beautiful legacy for the girls, but have given us a productive and helpful way to channel our grief xo The website is heartbreakingly beautiful and I encourage you to check it out :)!
