Steven Begleiter. The Chappaqua resident has qualified for a spot at the final table in the World Series of Poker on November 7.
Kevin Ryan. The Mount Kisco resident sadly lost his life trying to help a driver whose vehicle had overturned on Route 23 in Catskill, New York. Ryan did not see the gap between the eastbound and westbound lanes and fell to his death. We commend his compassion and bravery for being a true Good Samaritan.
The Hisiger family. The Armonk clan has made a five-year, $375,000 pledge to the Picture House in Pelham to build its new Film Education Institute.
Ann Buerly. On the heels of the Taconic Parkway tragedy, Buerly was stopped by police after crossing the Tappan Zee Bridge the wrong way. The Journal News reports that Buerly told police she knew she was driving the wrong way but kept going because she thought there would eventually be a place to turn around.
Michael York. A 10-time felon (with 27 convictions in all to-date), the Pelham resident was arrested for his 63rd time by Mount Vernon police, this time for allegedly trying to steal from a scrap yard on Carleton Avenue.
