In the Smithsonian Museum, one can kind find iconic TV props such as Archie Bunker’s Chair, the sign post from MASH and the Lone Ranger’s Mask. So a case could easily be made that Ed Norton’s hat form the Honeymooner’s should also hold an exalted place in our national museum. But the omission actually made the day of Chappaqua’s Eric Goldstein when he stopped into Bobo’s Cafe on Sunday afternoon.
For the bulk of last night’s game between Somers and Sleepy Hollow, the end zone didn’t have a lot of company from the 70 players suited up at the High School.

Here's my second installment on this subject. I have long agreed that Star Trek (2009) was pretty light on the serious science fiction subject manner. But I've recently had a change of heart, and here I go again gladly defending JJ Trek.
A basketball referee who is as youthful looking as 91 year old Bob Manning could easily go unnoticed as teams set up in the half court offense. On the other hand, when games goes up tempo his lag was hard to miss - especially from one very pertinent individual. “They would start the fast break and were all going past me before I got to half court. So I felt I was cheating the girls,” said Manning. “They gave me a party and I retired.” But Manning still does have both a whistle and well functioning right thumb, and he continues to put them to good use.
A few more snipets of our Somers Teachers
Junior High School and High School four decades in the past, I can no longer tell any detailed stories about my teachers growing up in Somers. That doesn’t mean there weren’t any good ones. The best I can do is provide some snippets and hopefully they give a decent representation of how valuable all these teachers were to us.
