dogAnimals, not people, made news in Scarsdale this week as three residents were bitten by dogs and cats and coyotes continued to frighten residents, though there were no incidents. A coyote was spotted in the vicinity of the Heathcote Elementary School, which is clearly a cause for concern.

Here are the stories of the bites: On the afternoon of September 10, a child on Springdale Road was bitten on the hand by the neighbor’s dog. The mother called the neighbor to make sure the dog’s shots were up to date.

On that same day, a stray cat bit a 2 year-old Morris Lane girl. The Westchester County Health Department advised her mom to try to trap the cat so that it could be tested. If the cat is not found within ten days the girl will have to undergo treatment for rabies.

A 68 year-old Greenacres man was bitten by a dog in Scarsdale Village on the afternoon of September 11 as he was walking into Scarsdale Eyecare on Spencer Place. The owner was able to produce the dog’s vaccination certificate and the man refused medical treatment.

And are the details of the coyote sightings:

  • On the afternoon of September 7 in the yard of 126 Carthage
  • On the night of September 7 at the intersection of Fairview and Post Road
  • On the afternoon of September 8 walking down Cayuga Road
  • At 5 pm on September 8 at 126 Carthagecoyote

In other news from the police blotter, there were three car break-ins overnight on 9/10- 9/11: The passenger side window of a 2004 Honda parked on Dell Road was broken and a Garmin nav device was stolen. On Springdale Road the passenger side window of a car was broken and a nav device was taken, and on Coralyn Road the driver’s side window of a 2001 Toyota Highlander was broken and a Garmin GPS was stolen.

Theft: A Tory Lane woman reported that $10,000 in currency that had been stored in an unlocked safe in her home had vanished sometime between August 9 and August 23rd.

Drunk at Scarsdale Station: An inebriated man was “helping passengers get onto the train at Scarsdale Station at 10 pm on September 8th. He left when the police arrived.

Trespass: On the afternoon of September 9 the owner of a Birchall Road home called police to report that his neighbor was trespassing on his property and taking photographs. The home at 50 Birchall is under construction. The contractor asked the neighbor to leave the grounds and to stop taking photographs. Police spoke to the neighbor who agreed to refrain from going onto the property in the future.

Walworth Avenue residents returned home at noon on 9/12 and found a beat up red car parked in their driveway and two men filming their house. The men claimed they were filming a documentary and got into the car and left. Police stopped their car and the men explained that they were doing a film for a local resident’s Bar Mitzvah and had been filming the “Village of Scarsdale” sign.

Fight: an altercation broke out between two men working at 2 Oxford Road on the afternoon of September 9th. The first man, a landscaper, was speaking to “Joe” who had installed the sprinkler system on the property. The landscaper told Joe that the system was not working properly and that he was withholding $100 until it was fixed. At that point Joe began to yell, threatened the landscaper, pushed the side of his head and kicked his truck. He then left the scene. Though the landscaper was not hurt he wanted to document the incident.

Harassed: A Park Road boy reported that he was harassed by the driver of a West Side Taxi while he was riding his bike on the night of 9/11.

Graffiti was found painted on the back of the Heathcote School on 9/11. The word “Tiger” was painted inside a yellow heart and “Canada” was written inside a circle.

Arrest: Tyson J. Tinsley, age 23 of Mt. Vernon, was turned over to Scarsdale Police by Mt. Vernon Police at 8 pm on 9/11. There was an outstanding bench warrant for his arrest.

dole1On September 10, 1960, Barrie McVickar Baxter married Karl Craigie Panthen at St. James the Less Church in Scarsdale, NY. They both began their lives having been born in New York City in 1935. Over the course of the past fifty years they have raised four children, Donald, Karen, Kris and Kathryn. They have one daughter-in-law, Carolyn Panthen and two sons-in-law’s, Gary Dole and Mark Webb. They are the proud grandparents to three grandsons, Kyle Craigie Panthen, now a senior in high school; Jordan Henry Panthen, a freshman in high school and Karl Edward Westgate, a sophomore in high school.

Through the years they have enjoyed traveling to various parts of the globe, socializing with family and friends and engaging in various community activities. Karl is still working, currently at Wells Fargo. Barrie spends her time just as busy, through the Woman’s Club, ceramics, choir and continued community volunteering services. They frequently travel to visit with their children and enjoy watching the grandsons grow up. Karl and Barrie have remained active members of St. James the Less Church and just earlier this year Karl was given the Wally Owen Award for dedication and service.

dole3They currently reside in Yonkers, New York. Instead of a party for just one evening, they decided they would spend their anniversary traveling to London and then cruising back across the Atlantic on the Queen Mary 2.

So, Scarsdale and those in the surrounding areas, please share with us in toasting Karl and Barrie Panthen as they celebrate this wonderful milestone in their lives and wish them continued safe travels and another wonderful fifty years!

Cheers Mom and Dad, we all love you and wish you the most happiness and joy that life has to offer, for that is what you have given to each one of us. Happy Fiftieth Anniversary!! Love, your children, children-in-law’s and grandsons.

saleThe Town of Greenburgh will sponsor  an old fashioned block party and garage sale at the Greenburgh Town Hall, Saturday, October 9th, 2010 from 11:00am until 5:00pm. Proceeds from the event will benefit the town’s youth skating program.

The parking lot at Town Hall will be converted into a welcoming festival-like space with vendors, music and activities for children. If it rains, all activities will be moved inside town hall.

Vendors, professional and non-professional, are invited to participate. To participate, vendors must pay a $50.00 (fifty dollars) participation/ table space fee. Professional, “For Profit” vendors, retailers or established food businesses, will be asked to provide a NYS Sales Tax Certificate of Authority. Any established “Not-For-Profit” organization will be asked to provide a NYS Sales Tax Exemption Certificate. All other vendors, including residents who wish to participate as individual vendors, will not be required to provide either.

The Dry Sale is just like a flea market event – participants may sell a variety of items (legal) that may be found at any flea market type event. Vendors must provide their own “set-ups,” i.e., items for sale, decorations, chairs and a table – not to exceed 3 feet wide and 6 feet long – as well as a table covering (optional). Vendors will be responsible for setting up their individual space, as well as breaking it down at the end of the event and will be held responsible for taking all personal items with them at the end of the day. There will be ample free parking available for all.

Reserve your table space by Friday, September 17, 2010. The $50.00 table space fee must be paid by Friday, October 1, 2010.

For further information, please call 993-1627.
