There was a fantastic show in the sky on Monday, August 21st, as the sun and moon came together in a solar eclipse. Local Live reporter, Aurora Fowlkes covered the spectacular event.

On Friday, August 25th, the new Tappan Zee Bridge opened after construction that lasted for the past four years. The Local Live spoke with Rye Neck alum, Wesley Walsh who was one of the project’s builders.
Love Larchmont, a local group on Facebook, has become a very valuable asset to the community. Amy Divito asked for advice from the group when her son lost his hearing aid recently at Flint Park. She sent a request for a metal detector to the community. Friends and strangers came to her aid and exhibited what a warmhearted village Larchmont really is. Amy’s story shows that “Love Larchmont” is more than just bringing new business to the local community, but it is also about initiating involvement in the community. Tiffany Smith, the founder of the group, said, “when we decided to create Love Larchmont, we never expected to have almost 5,000 members! We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place filled with thankful, kind, caring and loving people”.

Our Pets of the Week are Roscoe, an adorable 4-year-old dog and Sherry, a two-year-old Tuxedo cat. Roscoe weighs about forty-two pounds He loves people and going on long walks. He would do best as an only dog and is succeeding in his manners training. Sherry has the sweetest personality. She loves attention and being petted. She is afraid of other cats so it would be better for her if she is the only cat in the household. To adopt either Roscoe or Sherry, or to learn about other available pets for adoption, please go to www.ny-petrescue.org.
