08/23/07 - "They do a schtick together," said Pete Lucia, the festival's chairman, talking about how John LaBarca and Ange Rubino improvise on stage.



MONROE — The summery sweet aroma of fresh fried dough coated with melting powdered sugar hung in the air like an invitation.

An invitation to eat.

"I love the fried dough with the sugar on it," said Sonja Macri, of Monroe, as she strolled with her husband, Vinny, through the grounds of St. Jude Roman Catholic Church for the 17th annual St. Jude Italian Festival.

It was opening night Wednesday. The festival at the junction of Routes 110 and 111 is one of the town's major events and continues through Saturday night, offering steaming plates of freshly prepared Italian foods, as well as rides and games.

Macri recommends the cavitelli with broccoli, before taking a shot at the games.
"It's seasoned with garlic and it has olive oil," Macri said, talking about the pasta dish with great admiration.

Food isn't the only attraction. Italian singer Angie Rubino, 76, of Port Chester, N.Y., lulled the crowd with his resonant vocals on Italian songs, some of which appeared to be from long ago.........

08/23/07 - It was a tall order, writing songs for Shakespeare, Says Josh Carriero of Port Chester

Emma Green, Sergio Marroquin and Elinor Reina rehearse

for "As You Like It,"



When they started Lawn Chair Theatre last summer with "Much Ado About Nothing," the folks at the Port Chester Council for the Arts had a plan.

They set up their stage in a clearing between ball fields in Lyon Park and invited theater lovers to bring their own chairs and enjoy a show outdoors.

What they didn't plan on was an opening-night hailstorm that pelted cast, crew and theater lovers with ice pellets the size of golf balls and forced all to clamber to the shelter of the Girl Scout House in a far-off corner of the park.

The show went on the next night, inside the cozy cabin, safe from whatever Mother Nature could send their way.

This year, Lawn Chair Theatre's production of "As You Like It" ..........

08/23/07 - "I didn't want to hurt him. I just wanted him to get out of the way," Maureen Jackson told the Port Chester detective



“I didn't want to hurt him. I just wanted him to get out of the way”
A woman accused of killing her ex-boyfriend by running him over with her car told a detective that she first got angry with the victim when he made her walk four blocks and then more so when he stood in front .........

.........She said she asked Schribman to put her bag in her car and got mad at him when he asked for a ride back to his car. She wouldn't open the passenger door for him, she told the detective.
"I started to pull away and he stood in front of the car," she said, according to the statement. "He wouldn't move so I pressed on the accelerator very gently just to try to get him to move. I nudged him with my front bumper but he stood his ground directly in the middle of the front of my car. I then accelerated harder because I was even more angry now and I wanted to speed away."

She said she "felt a thud after I ran over his body" but she kept going because she wanted to get back to Mount Kisco.

Jackson had worked for the agency that managed the group home and was known to have mental health problems of her own. The housemate she claimed to be dating said in January that they only had a platonic relationship. Another housemate, William Petrovich, told The Journal News that Schribman was trying to stop Jackson from leaving because they were concerned she was depressed. She had promised them she was going to see a psychiatrist the next day and they didn't think she was in any condition to go home by herself, Petrovich said.
