08/28/07 Q BBQ Of Port Chester Is Headed To Mount Kisco



Heard that "Q" (of Port Chester) will be opening in Mt.Kisco ... Across the street from TJ Maxx where the UPS store is. Lots of construction going on there ... Hope the guy in the UPS store is right.

Steven C. Davidson, Attorney At Law, Blogs About Dog Fighting In Port Chester


Going to the dogs


My cell phone died. It got wet. It vibrates when it rings. It was placed somewhere it shouldn't have been placed, and when it rang, the vibration caused it to slid into a glass of soda. That's how it got wet. Now I have to replace it ASAP. My cell phone is a big part of my law practice. Anyway, the Michael Vick story is all over the place. I represented a dog fight case once in Port Chester. Really hard to get behind my client. I love dogs. But I did it anyway. That's my job.

Additional performers will be announced.

08/28/07 - Port Chester Taxi Companies Are Better Than Greenwich Taxi

Letter To The Editor



To the editor:

I have a simple solution to the lack of available parking at Westchester County Airport (Greenwich Time news story, Aug. 20).

I live in Greenwich, like many people who utilize this convenient airport. In fact, I live 6.5 miles from the facility. If I want to leave my car at home and take a taxi, I have to pay $46 one way, not including tip, for the 6.5 miles.Greenwich Taxi seems to be the only transportation available.

Why can't I find another company to compete with Greenwich Taxi? There are a couple in Port Chester, but they seem intimidated to take a fare to the airport. Am I imagining this? What's that about?

I'd be happy to take a bus or shuttle, but one is not available.I travel to Chicago often, and average airfare price is $200. To use Greenwich Taxi at $92 round-trip, plus tip, would cost me $105 plus. So the 6.5 mile ride, which takes nine minutes and frees up a parking space, would cost more than half the price of my airfare.

I really don't blame Greenwich Taxi. The company is asking and getting what it wants. But isn't there some town committee that could take a minute from deciding which color tulips to plant downtown and instead decide how better to manage transportation to the airport?
