03/03/11 Where Is The Westmore News? The Journal News Is Reporting That Port Chester Fire Chief Says Electrical Malfunction Caused Midland Ave Firre

Quote Of The Day: "I can't say enough about the working relationship with the Red Cross, fire, the Mayor's Office, the police. It just was a really coordinated effort, and everything worked, to take care of the families.", said Carolyn Sherwin, a Red Cross volunteer.


The fire that destroyed a three-story building on Midland Avenue was caused by an electrical malfunction and fed by natural gas, the fire chief said Wednesday.

Fire Chief Kevin McFadden said firefighters worked throughout the night after the fire broke out at 1:10 p.m. Tuesday, and managed to contain the flames to 304 Midland Ave. The job was made more difficult because of natural gas escaping from one side of the building before Consolidated Edison cut off service.

"This is probably one of the greatest, tremendous efforts the department's done — tremendous aid, given the potential," McFadden said. "Had we had a windy day, we probably would have lost five structures."

The surrounding buildings, separated by only a foot or two, had heavy damage from smoke and water.

Firefighters soaked the neighboring homes to help save them.

The commercial and residential structure at 304 Midland has been demolished, and cleanup efforts kept Midland Avenue closed for most of the day Wednesday. McFadden said the demolition took place overnight with authorization from the owner, who was on a cruise and had to be reached by his attorney.

03/03/11 A Recap Of Last Nights Port Chester Mayoral Forum Hosted By The League Of Women Voters

League Of Women Voters Forum Was Ba Ba Ba Ba Booooooring ........

Port Chester Residents Looking For Fireworks Were Disappointed Last Night

Last Nights’s public forum for the Port Chester mayoral candidates brought a few differences between Bart "The Bigot" Didden and Port Chester Mayor Dennis Pilla.

The decision on whether to spend another million dollars to appeal the voting rights decision,

Bart's perception of the village finances

Overall, incumbent Mayor Dennis Pilla clearly demonstrated progress on everything from code enforcement to corruption-fighting within the ranks, while Republican nominee and Trustee Bart Didden repeatedly tried in vain to put together an argument of “mismanagement.”

Mayor Dennis Pilla noted the recent upgrade of Port Chester’s bond rating to its highest ever, coming despite declining sales and mortgage taxes.

A couple times, the candidates were asked what they would do to foster more unity and tolerance among village residents.

Extremist TEA Party Lunatic Bart "The Bigot" Didden avoided the question by saying, “The divide is between government and the people.”

Mayor Dennis Pilla said the community is mainly tolerant but that the board itself had to set a more civil tone, rather than fan the flames.

“If you watch the meetings on TV, and I don’t mean to disparage, but it’s as though they’re throwing lighter fluid on a fire that’s already partially lit,” the Mayor Pilla said.

One specific policy difference that I hadn’t heard before was on the potential for sharing services with Rye and Rye Brook.

Mayor Dennis Pilla said he and the village manager met recently with Rye about sharing code-enforcement functions and fire services. He noted that Rye Brook already pays a fee in return for service from volunteer firefighters.

Bart "The Bigot" Didden dismissed the notion that the wealthy, less-racially-diverse neighboring communities wanted any deals with Port Chester.

“You think Rye Brook wants a lot to do with Port Chester? Asked Extremist TEA Party Lunatic Bart "The Bigot" Didden.

The City of Rye, they don’t want us over there. They don’t want us in their park, they don’t want us on their beach, and we have to maintain our rights and our ability.”, Extremist TEA Party Lunatic Bart "The Bigot Didden Continued.

It looks like Extremist TEA Party Lunatic Bart "The Bigot" Didden is arguing that those Rich WASPs in Rye And those Rich Jews in Rye Brook want nothing to do with those down and out Guidos and Wet Backs in Port Chester.

It sort of reminds one of when Bart "The Bigot" Didden's racist political flier said,"The Hispanics Are Running The Show In Port Chester." and when when Bart "The Bigot" Didden's racist political flier continued with,"Don't elect carpet baggers [ie. Hispanics], elect people who care about our history, heritage and what our kids will be told about us in the future. Are we to be known as racists or law abiding free Americans?"

There was no discussion of Extremist TEA Party Lunatic Bart "The Bigot Didden's racist political flier 0r the fact that Bart's Downtown Office Had No Certificate Of Occupancy at the League Of Women Voters event last night.

03/01/11 Hey, I have got an idea lets go spend 45 bucks to go drink wine with Port Chester's infamous bigot.

"Hello, Willet House. Please Cancel Reservation."

Maybe Port Chester Roundup should take pictures to see who is hanging out with Bart "The Bigot" Didden.

Many good and decent people in Port Chester, Rye Brook, Rye and Greenwich will now be scratching the Willet House in Port Chester of their list of favorite restaurants.

What is the management of the Willet house thinking when they decided to host Bart "The Bigot" Didden's event?

Who is the Willet House going to host next?

Iranian President Ahmedinejad?

Shame, Shame, Shame On The Willet House Management For Hosting An Infamous Bigot.

Today in History: Star-Spangled Banner

March 03
President Herbert Hoover chose "Star-Spangled Banner" as the U.S. national anthem on this day in 1931. A decision he'd regret if he was still alive and subjected to Christina Aguilera's Superbowl performance.
