I'm in Edgemont, all my property runs along Sunningdale Golf Club, Nature Preserve, Hillard day camp. The coyotes have been here for years, we have seen pups and adults, and my border collie and australian shepherd have had many barking matches with them. Loud noise, screaming etc. they are immune too, point something long and thin towards them and they run if it looks like a BB gun or riffle, apparently they have been shot at many times. One morning at 5am, I was getting ready to leave for a dog show, went to put my dog out and it came running down towards the deck, pointed the broom at him/her and it ran off as I was pressing the dog clicker which was making noise like a trigger View Comment
They have never left, we can hear them all night long in the woods long my property. Tuesday, my border collie got up and was having a barking match with them around 4am, two where hanging around on my front lawn. This new young breed of coyotes has no fear, noise, herding dogs, etc. will not chase them off, they will defend back View Comment
I always travel those roads, have not had an issue. The issue we do have is up at Fort Hill and Ardsley Road, can't begin to tell you how many I have seen rush through the stop signs. Surprised there has not been a serious accident there yet. Some are always in a hurry and have no regard if you have been sitting there waiting your turn to make a right or left turn. And have seen some where if one car goes another is right on their ass moving too. Not only that if you have a large SUV, truck or van have seen them having a hard time turning because everyone seem to go right beyond the curbs, making to hard to turn.
The landlord should be responsible, like most are, it is so run down, to the point I will not shop there anymore, like many places on Central Ave. I usually go up county or Connecticut.
I just came back from Florida and I can't believe the gorgeous, well kept shopping centers there truly is out there.
As a matter of fact with all my travels via SUV, now an RV, I cannot believe the difference when one travels south of Delaware and out west as far as Tulsa, OK, how different everything is, roads are better, malls are better and people are even more friendly. View Comment
One of the things I did notice on the MAP of Gun Permit/Owners that some homes are right next door to Day Camps, Schools. So what is going to happen to the Day Camp businesses, are they now going to find people will not be signing up their child this summer because they saw this map and now they are afraid of Legal Guns users and/or Retired Officer who has the right to a gun permit and legal gun, whom all may very well have the cleanest records. Show the Mentally Ill or Child Molester in this area who has a shady past. This could very well hurt businesses, If I'm going to sell my house, someone now has a list, they could easily tell the brokers, do not show me houses in this area, so me as a home owner looking to sell, could be sitting on my house for years with no bites because of my next door neighbor. Who cares about their next door neighbor I don't, I want to come and go as I please without anyone bothering me, you don't bother me I won't bother you......... View Comment
Here's part of an article someone told me read on LoHud.com....
The governor should also address the state’s unique role in the firearms industry; as The Associated Press reported last week, state taxpayers have invested nearly $6 million over the last three years subsidizing Ilion-based Remington Arms Co., manufacturer of semi-automatic rifles like those used in the Connecticut school shooting and the fatal shooting of two firefighters outside Rochester on Christmas Eve — weapons many now wish to make off-limits to the public. “Some elected leaders want tighter restrictions on those guns but none say it’s time to stop supporting Remington Arms Co. and its nearly 1,000 jobs in the Central New York community of Ilion,” the AP reported.
Go after them, leave the legal Gun Permit/Owner alone. View Comment
They are planning on listing all of you too, as of last night. I know my brother has rifles he was not listed, but we where for the gun permits and wheres there are permits you know there are LEGAL GUNS. View Comment
Stupidity on their part. The list includes every retired and still working Police Officer, Military person, Law abiding citizens. Not to mention they have put most of us on alert by listing addresses. Sure they told all the criminals where they maybe able to get Guns for Free, instead of purchasing off the streets. There are times I spend 3 nights alone on weekends while my husband is out of town. Since this every time I hear a car I'm jumping up, my dogs are barking. I show dogs, what if someone does try to break in and one of my dogs goes into guard mode, they will kill her or him. What if they break in and I'm alone, by the time I grab a gun and unlock it he has already attacked me. We have been extremely private, it has all been destroyed by a New Developer for the past two years and now by listing my husband and address for having a gun permit. Since this I have pulled the forms and started to fill out for my own gun permit. Go to Facebook and you will see where all of the JN idiots have been listed by addresses and Google photo, not to mention the two that own guns themselves. This list does nothing about solving the problems with illegal guns and magazines, if you all double check you will probably find that 99% of all listed have never been in any kind of legal trouble and are normal......So hope the first person to have their house hit because of this list goes after the JN like a ton of bricks with every possible law suit. Some are saying with the list they will stay away, not in this country criminals are growing, there are times I hate shopping on Central Avenue by myself, especially after someone tried to break into my car at TJMaxx.

Day 11 or 12 lost count still not power..... We had the same up here on South Healy, my neighbor and I where worried about this older gentleman down on S. Healy, she went to see if he was ok. He stood there in a bathroom freezing, shaking, guess he was trying to eat in the dark, cause had food all over him. We call Services, they sent an officer, they gave him a blanket and left him there. Still the next day we talked about him, at night she was worried, she cooked up some canned soup, went down to him, sat in his kitchen with him, a flash light, while on the phone with Paul Feiner, he had officers there, but took an hour, they took him out and brought him someplace. Barney's sister called and said because of his meds. he is 88 years old, they brought him up to Mount Kisco Hospital where he will stay until power comes back in our area. We only know of this gentleman because of our walks with the dogs, we would always see him alone. Mr. Feiner, I don't always stick up for you, Here I Will, other town manners I can't every since the town did us wrong up here on Elizabeth Street. We still have lots of people here refusing to leave, they are all worried about there homes, we only rely on ELECTRIC, we have no other source, like most home with Gas, for some reason, Con Ed has always refused to run gas lines to this area, maybe now Mr Feiner can get on there backs out this, it's only about 18 homes. And we have lost power with every storm now, after the first big snow storm back in 2010, something needs to be done View Comment
We are besides ourselves, they had crews out here today on South Healy and Elizabeth Street. They cut trees, left them on the road out to the middle of an already narrow road, where two cars can barely pass. Now we have about 3" of snow on the ground, we are three homes located at the top of the hill, only 1 way in, same way out. We need the plows and sanders in order to get out of here, we still have no power. Paul Feiner says call the police dept and then he thinks Con Ed is doing a slow down Guess what Mr Feiner and everyone else involved, I now called all the news channels, sent photos, maybe someone at one of the stations will listen because this damn town has not
I understand, but nobody from this town has been here to clear the trees, etc. neighbors went out and did it all. We have several down Poles along South Healy, with wires laying across yards with kids. Neighbors report an elderly man freezing in his house, refusing to leave. Trees hanging on wires just 2' above guard rails, chain link fencing and water. Another tree neighbors tried to cut away. You can not get any large trucks up to the No Access road of Elizabeth Street. So if a fire starts up here caused by down wires and dried leaves, etc. we are simply cooked. We lost (13) 80 ft ever greens and maple tree like dominos across our property, which where hanging on wires and over the house, we paid more than we should have to just get those away from the house so we would not loose that entire side of the house, or the propane tanks on that side did not burst into flames. We are all 100% electric, no other sources of power to these homes. Nights are getting colder and we have to shut off the generator during the day and at night to conserve the expenses. Now with another storm entering the area, and no power we are all going to have extreme expenses when pipes start to freeze and plows or town people can not get up here to clear the roads, this is hill country, if you don't drive an SUV or AWD you can not make these hills unless they are plowed and salted. Roads that have only one way in and the same way out should be taken care of first, think about he hazards, never mind the law suits which could follow. Now today is Election Day, no town service, no service on Thursday, No service next Monday, no service on Thanksgiving, (3 straight weeks), so instead of them having all these days off, get them out there and start cutting away trees blocking roadways, etc. We keep paying higher taxes and keep getting less for it.

If you see a coyote, they can be easily scared by making loud noises or waving your arms, according to the bulletin.
Sorry NOT so, the ones around here have no fear of humans or even Border Collies who are use to protecting there flocks from Coyotes, I know, hear them at least several times a week and have had them stand 10-20 feet from my BC barking at each. Loud noises or screaming does not fear them. One Saturday morning, I was getting ready to leave for a Dog Show, it was around 5am, as I went out, he looked me and my BC in the eye, and started to come towards us, but her barking kept him at least 10 feet away, the only way he ran off, was I picked up a baseball bat and pointed it at him like a gun and made pop, pop noises, so between my husband and I we have assumed many have pointed guns at them and they are more afraid of that move than anything else. Remember they are coming down from upstate, as we keep taking away the land for homes, they will travel. Coyotes can travel at least 20 or more miles per day to search for food, so hungry from travel they will go on the attack. I am completely surrounded by the only wooded areas which can never be developed "Thank God" for that. So the ones you are seeing, I believe is the pack that has been living here for the past few years. View Comment
So you drive into Scarsdale and Pay $3.95 - $3.99 for regular on Scarsdale Ave. at Shell or Citco, prefer Shell. Then you go over the TZ bridge just a few miles into NJ and pay $3.65 - $3.88, and you have Central Avenue where all the stations are so out of Wack. I travel ever weekend to dog shows and I get most of my gas in other states, especially when your car takes Regular gas and has a
30 gallon tank View Comment
5) there is, however, a rumor going around that the Greenburgh Daily Voice avoids serious news because hard reporting of the facts might upset the local problem solver.
That goes for everything that happen around Greenburgh View Comment
What a shame, we like Fairway and the original Turco's, only markets left that sell Prime Cut meats. We travel on the weekends to them to do all our shopping, well, we even hit Yorktown to shop at the A&P, and then we have Whole Foods, meats and fish always fresh View Comment
I go to lots of Bubble arenas on the weekends for dogs trials, from Connecticut to Massachusetts, New Jersey to Pennsylvania. They are all hidden on 25 and more acres of land not to be seen from homes or a beautiful golf course, not sure it is a good spot for an odd building, I know from the top of our hill we will see the top of that building, bad enough we look at the rusty water tank during the winter months, now we'll have a bubble. There are some problems that do occur, one I see is the traffic it is going to generate on a two lane road, cars in, cars out. Now you need traffic lights, need to widen the road with left and right aisles.
We have also been in those run and held up by air, (noisy), hot under extreme heat, cold in the winter, and they have A/C and Heat, and seen one in Connecticut callaps from too much snow.
Maybe they should rethink this area, it's more for a commercial area, not where there are homes, neighbors should start thinking about the down fall of their properties. View Comment
Look if you want to ride a bike fine, I have no objection, but on an early Saturday or Sunday morning when I'm leaving for a dog trial and you have over 40-50 bikers, who at that time in the morning think they own it all, well that just pisses me off. I am a motorcycle rider since I was 24yo, I respect the road only because of my motoring skills. But regular bike riders, they block both lanes, rarely stop for the traffic light, and have seen them make lefts or rights without a hand single, also had them cut right in front of me up by the four corners. Next 5-6am trip I will stop and take a photo, it's along Central Avenue way.
And then you have the regular riders driving back and forth to work, guess they don't value their lives, have seen some pretty stupid moves on their part along Central Avenue to. View Comment
