What’s Up Peekskill? It’s a Horse race.

Friday is Press Freedom Day so read a newspaper and appreciate the people’s intelligence service: the free press!
Saturday you can bust out the bourbon and mint, it’s Derby time. Also take some time to be one with the Force.
On Sunday bust out the tequila and mariachi music for Cinqo de Mayo.
All weekend long, bust your moves cause you’re a P-rocker.

What’s Up Peekskill? April Showers.

It’s a rainy day in April, go figure. It’s a rainy weekend, too. So brighten it up by going to the plant sale on Saturday at the Riverfront Green, and take in the cherry blossoms while you’re at it. When you’re done there, check out Dain’s deck show to upgrade your house, and then stop by Dylan’s for a wine tasting. So that’s Saturday, the rest of the weekend is up to you. So go out and P-Rock it.

Peekskill Democratic Primary Sept 12!

Don’t forget to vote in the primaries! Find your polling place here.

From an article on Patch with info on all primaries throughout Westchester:

Topping the races is the contentious fight for Peekskill Common Council. There are five people vying for three lines on the Democratic ballot in November, and two of them are running on the GOP slate.

The five seeking the Democratic lines:

    Robert M. Sullivan
    Colin D. Smith
    Ramon A. Fernandez
    Luis A. Segarra
    Vanessa B. Agudelo

Segarra and Sullivan are running mates, picked by the Peekskill Republican Committee to run on its “Peekskill United” slate. Their entry into the race, forcing a Democratic Primary, caused fury among city Democrats. It led to the usual intra-party in-fighting following New York State’s arcane election laws.

What’s Up Peekskill? River tours are back.

Hey P-Rockers, Welcome to Memorial Day weekend! Get your white pants out… if you’re into that. Wish the weather was better, though — (Not my fault). But River tours are back, and we got lots of good stuff going — as usual! So get out and Rock!
