92-year old homeowner Antonio Vanacore joined the fray after seeing his caregiver fighting with an intruder.

New Rochelle police detectives are investigating a home invasion and attempted armed robbery in the North End of New Rochelle for possible links to similar cases in Mount Vernon and Pelham Manor, sources tell Talk of the Sound.

On Thursday afternoon around 1 pm, a white or hispanic male followed a woman into a house at 3 Cadillac Road in New Rochelle. Also in the house was the 92-year old homeowner. Once inside the home, the intruder brandished a hand gun and pointed it at the woman. The woman, a home health care worker, grabbed the gun and fought with the man. The homeowner joined in the struggle. The suspect fled the scene in a black pick up truck with New York State license plate F-7447. Nothing was stolen. Vanacore suffered severe bruises on both arms.

I noticed an interesting blog post entitled The Tort of Political Discriminationby Burt Likko. The writer raises a concern about something that probably occurs too often – a potential law school professor was denied a position because she held political views that were different from the rest of the faculty.

Simply said, I am toxic, and a mere glance at the newspapers, blogs, or lending an ear to the cable news indicates I suffer from a malady shared by most of world. It is rampant, a disease of the soul and spirit and it must stop NOW! Rationalizations about "critique", will of the Founding Fathers, ideology is no longer helpful. the patient is sick, very very sick and we have not diagnosed the cause of this illness.

On December 23rd the New Rochelle Fire Fighters organized their 6th annual “Bring Holiday Cheer” to others that are less fortunate. This year and for the past 5, fire fighters and their families gave back to their community. This year the Fire Fighters were able to visit 5 families where Fire Fighters and their family members went to the homes of those that are less fortunate to spread holiday cheer by bringing Christmas trees, wrapped gifts and food. It’s just another way that Fire Fighters give back to their community; it’s something that they love to do it.  And just this past Halloween and for the last 10 years, the New Rochelle Firefighters bring Halloween to the Children’s Cancer Hospital where they dress up in various costumes, deliver candy, and spend the day face and wall painting with all of the children bringing smiles to those that sometimes find it hard to smile. The New Rochelle Fire Fighters are always finding ways to give back to the community that they protect.

We want to wish Happy Holidays to all!

New Rochelle’s Bravest

Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night !

It's that time of year again. Frenzied shopping, decking the halls, getting ready for family and friends and all that goes along with it. Don't forget to take time for yourself and those close to you as we share the holiday spirit.  Here's wishing you all the magic of a childs' Christmas morning and the quiet peace of an overnight snowfall.

Back in 2009, I offered a wish for the troops to come home and share the best gift of all, Christmas Morning around the tree with family. It looks like many were granted that wish this year, but remember, the war isn't over yet, in spite of what they say. Tens of thousands will be serving our Nation far from home this Christmas, so let's try to keep them in mind as we count our blessings. Shake their hand when they come home and say a prayer for them until they do.

Here's a little Christmas music - enjoy!

Merry Christmas New Rochelle
