Not only are Chubby's prices competitive, but they stand behind every item. The service is outstanding and they will patiently answer your questions and provide the information you need to make a sound purchase. Just as an aside, they carry the Big Green Egg Charcoal Grill. My husband LOVES it! The DiPietro family is an absolute mainstay in Scotts Corners. Thank you for a great article. View Comment
Niels and Alyce Wittus have served the community for many years, providing heating alternatives that are energy efficient, sustainable and state-of-the-art. Wittus-Fire by Design has always been a leader in their field. We are proud that they are part of the Pound Ridge Business Association and the Scotts Corners business community. View Comment
Willy is indeed a Pound Ridge treasure. Many years ago I was privileged to attend a presentation by him on the unique work he had done in identifying burial mounds of mass graves in Europe from aerial photos. His heritage is Polish and he was trying to identify sites of Nazi massacres. While first trying to locate the sites of massacres of Polish aristocracy (the Nazis were trying to wipe out anything of significance to Polish culture), his work later expanded to also locate such sites of Jewish massacres as Babi Yar. His work has been lauded by Yad VaShem Holocaust Memorial in Israel and the National Holocaust Museum in Washington. Willy is a complex and remakable talent and artist. Thank you for sharing this tribute to his artistry. View Comment
I fully agree that Pound Ridge Wines & Spirits is a wonderful addition to Scotts Corners. But it is disingenuous and mean spirited to use this opportunity to lob snide comments about the streetlights, which are to be covered by private donations (if you had bothered to really look for the facts.) The preposterously inflated figure of $2 million dollars is nonsensical and totally false!!! The business community has always tried to support improvements. The first such beautification project was spearheaded by Republican Town Supervisor Fred Zwick in the 1970s. The Pound Ridge Business Association undertook such projects as the Millennium Clock and the Fred Zwick Memorial Fountain. Members of the business community donated the park benches and joined with the Partnership and the Town to add 3 bicycle racks.
Don't piggyback on an excellent article about a great wine shop to score cheap political points. View Comment
If we can believe the meteorologists, this will be a fantastic weekend to stroll through the art festival. We invite visitors to Scotts Corners to enjoy our shops and restaurants while they are "in town." Thank you, Larry, for the great article! View Comment
My grandson was bullied frequently (with sexual overtones) by an older boy with a history of truancy, etc. That boy had been disciplined previously for smoking and other infractions, etc. But no effort was made by anyone but the bus driver (a very caring woman) to protect my grandson. The district did not take action against the older boy and my grandson was the object of ridicule for reporting the bullying. View Comment
Anyone who spent time warming up at the Town House last fall after Sandy put out the lights (and a whole lot more) know just how far beyond our police department goes. Chief Ryan and his team checked up on all seniors in our register to see that their driveways were clear and that they were all right. They brought people to the Town House who couldn't get there. Personally, we know that we're in safe hands with Dave and his men and women. Support the PRPBA by going to their Car Show on September 21st! It's one way to say Thanks. View Comment

In addition to delicious Italian food, the Salvis also serve the community with a generous heart. Frank and his family are there to support Pound Ridge in so many ways. Thank you, Salvi family, for making Pound Ridge a culinary destination. View Comment
As I stood in Sachs Park today as part of the Pound Ridge 9/11 Ceremonies memorializing September 11, 2001, I was reminded that 12 years the skies were also a sunny blue. The events of that day made an indelible impression on our lives. I am happy to say, that Richard and I have taken back our very happy anniversary. Because, in the end, love and life trump hate and death. View Comment
Fred serves as a Director of the Pound Ridge Business Association. Fred and his family/team exemplify the very best in community businesses and their hearts and souls are invested in maintaining quality of product and service to their clientele and our community in every possible way. Fred seriously needs a clone sometimes. He supports local ventures not only with Albano's financial support but by being there himself to pitch in as a working member of several Town and community committees.. We are very lucky to have Albano Appliance in our Pound Ridge family. And I am personally am very lucky to call Fred a friend. View Comment
Israel has developed expertise in a number of disciplines for dealing with multi-casualty events. In Boston, before the bombings at the Marathon, Israeli doctors had given seminars at a Boston hospital to deal with such an event. According to the Boston doctors, this literally made a life or death difference when they had to handle the casualties from the Marathon bombings. View Comment
Joyce and I have worked together for many years as members of the Board of Trustees of the Pound Ridge Historical Society. Her energy, dedication and creativity are evident to anyone who works with her. This is a well-deserved honor! View Comment
Just another example of how the Pound Ridge Volunteer Fire Department serves the community, above and beyond. Everyone in Pound Ridge should make an annual donation to this very special, dedicated group of men and women.
Thank you! View Comment
Joan is a Pound Ridge Treasure--part gad fly, part creative genius and totally generous of her time and resources. Joan also is one of the founders of the Pound Ridge Tennis Club, an important member of the Pound Ridge Business Association and so much more, She is the moving force behind the creation and realization of the Fred Zwick Fountain (funded in large part by barbecues at her shop), as well as the person responsible for the presence of the many "Central Park"-style benches throughout Scotts Corners. It is a privilege and a pleasure to call her a friend. Joan is indeed a force of nature! View Comment
