A crisp, crystal clear night provided the backdrop as Mother Nature brought the moon just a little closer to New Rochelle (and the rest of the world) last night as if to confirm "winter is over". Amen to that! With Sunday being the first day of spring, it was a fitting fanfare to usher in the new season.
If you took photos last night and would like to share them please send them.
Saturday nights "super moon" resulted as the moon reached its perigee and came closer to the earth than it has in the last 20 years or so. Closest it's been, in fact, since January 20, 1992. Anybody remember where you were on that date? In case you missed this years celestial "happening" all is not lost. The moon will be even closer on November 14, 2016 for all you stargazers. Until then, get out and enjoy spring and all it has to offer!Read more
UPDATED: Seal PHOTOS and VIDEO Submitted.
There were reports yesterday of a sick seal at the New Rochelle Marina. Several readers reported seeing news helicopters hovering over that area; the seal report is why they were there. The seal was not visible to the news crews and there are some reports that the seal has left the area. None of this is official but readers who are near the water are encouraged to keep an eye out. A beer on Talk of the Sound at Dudley's St. Patrick's Day party for the first to capture the seal on camera!Read more

Many readers of the blog may be familiar with me for my contributions here. (Currently, I serve as calendar editor, contributor & Bob's wacky sidekick on the weekly Talk of the Sound Radio program), but, of recent, I've ventured into the blogging world with a solo effort.
Unlike this publication, I'm not looking to break news - instead, http://matthewfunti.me mainly offers silly musings and comical graphics woven together into pieces with larger central themes. Other times I slap together some random thoughts, links and assorted nonsense I've been compelled to share.Read more
