No Fleischmanns mayor after vote falters

By Jay Braman Jr.
At a special meeting Monday night, the Fleischmanns Village Board failed to appoint a mayor to replace Dave Morell, who resigned that post a week ago.

The action, or lack of action, surprised Deputy Mayor Todd Pascarella, who expected to become Morell’s replacement that evening.

Trustee Ben Fenton made a motion that Pascarella be appointed mayor, to serve out the rest of Morell’s term, which expires in March 2013.

But neither trustees Harriet Grossman or Fred Woller would give Fenton’s motion a second.

Fleischmanns flood relief fundraiser set for Sunday

By Jay Braman Jr.
The Village of Fleischmanns was hit hard by flooding caused by Tropical Storm Irene and weeks after the water subsided the village continues to struggle with expenses wrought by the flood.
And so, on Sunday, Oct. 9 from 1 to 4 p.m. an old-fashioned fund-raiser will be held to raise some money for the village.

Nothing fancy. The event will not take place in some posh eatery or mansion, but right on the Main Street parking lot, which was itself underwater a month ago.

By John Bernhardt
All summer long the baseball story around the metropolitan New York area has been the tale of two shortstops. New York baseball fans, and to some degree baseball fans around America, have been caught up in a firestorm of day-to-day drama and excitement generated by Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter and Met shortstop Jose Reyes. Jeter had the baseball world counting hits as he worked to put an exclamation point on a legendary major league career.
