The version of "Mutiny on the Bounty," starring Marlon Brando and Trevor Howard, andRead More directed by Lewis Milestone, for which the ill-fated ship was built, was released in 1962, not 1960.

I remember seeing the Bounty a couple of times over the years, once docked in Miami and once whileRead More she was in a shipyard in Staten Island for a refit. From the perspective of thirty years at sea as a ship's officer, and having experienced numerous hurricanes at sea, I cannot comprehend the captain's decision to sail the Bounty directly into the teeth of a hurricane, particularly one of the worst on record. And there is no excuse for the captain not to know the storm was there. This is the 21st century, not the 18th century. Any captain would have been following reports the progress of a storm like that for at least a week beforehand.

SCARSDALE REVALUATION In an article on May 21, 2014 written by Joanne Wallenstein at www.Read More scarsdale10583 .com Scarsdale Mayor Bob Steves was asked to comment on the petition for a deferral. Speaking for himself he said, "After a number of conversations and the inadequacies of the prior roll, I see no reason to delay implementation of this roll. There has been nothing that has come to my attention that should delay the reval at this point." Due to much widespread confusion to many Scarsdale homeowners on all levels of property worth who are having trouble understanding the methodology used by Tyler Technologies, Inc. in determining their reassessments, further clarification would be beneficial. To better understand and being it is public record listed on the Village of Scarsdale's website www. scarsdale .com (Assessor section under "Property Inquiry") let us ask upon Mayor Steves to please explain how Tyler Technologies methodology works for example with his own home and property's reassessment and compares to his next door neighbors property. Here's how they compare side by side: Assessed Value Total: Tentative 2014 AV / 2013 FMV AV / (Adjustment amount) Mayor Steves' house and property (2 Fairview Rd.): $1,094,000 / $1,104,046 / (Decreased $10,046) Next Door Neighbors house and property (4 Fairview Rd.): $968,000 / $609,827 / (Increased $358,173) Property Information Mayor' house: 0.44 acre Next Door Neighbors house: 0.38 acre Building Information/Living Area Mayor' house: 2534 sq. ft. Next Door Neighbors house: 1600 sq. ft. Grade Mayor' house: B 105% Next Door Neighbors house: C 100% (Note: For "Overall Condition" rating as follows: Excellent, Good, Normal, Fair, Poor) Overall Condition: Mayor' house: Good Next Door Neighbors house: Poor (See the Scarsdale Village website for more details as to how these two properties compare). Please Mr. Mayor help us in understanding why comparable houses and properties have such large marginal differences in using Tyler Tecnologies' methodology that determines 2013 market value reassessments?

Without a doubt the best sledding hill in the area is the big one in the Croton Dam Park. I don'tRead More know what the restrictions are these days but years go the hill was crowded with risk taking sledders. It was a natural for wannabe lugers and bobsledders. We used to take our Cub Scout pack there but it was hard to get the kids to remember the Flexible Flyers don't turn well when airborne. Many trips would end with a quick run to the emergency ward at the Hudson Valley Hospital.
