To the Editor: Why are they acting like idiots, everyone wants to know? more
On Dec. 19, 2023, in an interview on a cable TV station that reaches nearly 2 million viewers each weeknight, a former senior advisor in the Trump White House spoke about what he characterized as the “complete resettlement of America.” He attributed that phenomenon to the arrival here of millions of people from far and wide, bringing with them their cultures, traditions, and belief systems. more
Riverdale has been known for many landmarks over its long history — from Van Cortlandt Park and Van Cortlandt House to the Riverdale Neighborhood House to Wave Hill. But there is really just one that screams Riverdale when you see it. more
As chair of the Senate Health Committee, I have made it my mission to fight for New Yorkers who are forced to navigate a broken health care system that has shamelessly become a profit making enterprise. As I prepare to return to Albany in a few days, I am focused on practical, ambitious solutions that will transform our system into one where care decisions are between providers and their patients. more
To the Editor: Three years ago, we all witnessed a violent mob descend on the Capitol, costing people their lives, because one man — Donald Trump — spread lies about a “stolen” election.  more

(Re: “Time to retire, Mr. Dinowitz,” Dec. 21) To the Editor: Adam Stoler’s letter, published in the Dec. 21 issue of The Riverdale Press says, in my opinion, more about Adam Stoler than it does about Assemblyman Dinowitz’s laudatory support of Israel’s right to defend itself against the savage assaults of Hamas, evil beings bent on terror. Hamas’ butchery and rape of infants, women and the elderly on Oct. 7 is indefensible; their slaughter of some 1400 innocent civilians, including the beheading of babies and the proud videotaping by Hamas of their barbarism, marks them as the descendants of Amalek, the Biblical embodiment of evil.
