Residents of the normally quiet East End section of New Rochelle were amused as they watched a young male deer foraging in their neighbor's garden. A first for any of the locals, it was a pleasant surprise especially for the kids. One neighbor called the police who asked "is he breaking any laws?" and that put it into perspective as we all learn to share the environment.Read more
Councilman Lou Trangucci knows his constituents will question the $1200 dues to ICLEI (International Council Local Environmental Initiatives) for the GreeNR plan. He is concerned because he said this expenditure was never presented to the Council before they voted. Another Councilman, Richard St. Paul, expressed displeasure that the City Council is being asked to approve a GreeNR plan where amendments made by Council are listed separately from the original document.Read more
ICLEI/Agenda 21 is a plan by a foreign UN-based group that runs contrary to the US Constitution, runs roughshod over our civil rights. Any local government that accepts this plan, is in act committing TREASON (which is what Benedict Arnold was shot by firing squad).
ICLEI is an organization essentially run by people that hate the US and our lifestyle. They despise that we make as much money as we do, live in 1 family houses and drive automobiles.
They want to take our homes away and have us live in little concrete blocks because it fits their view of sustainabilty. For owning a car, a one-family home and living the way we do - we would be fined and taxed into giving up our homes because we could not sustain the charges against us. No private homes, no cars, no allegiance to the US government - but allegiance to being a citizen of the world where the UN group is the only government on the globe. They also believe in population control - use your imagination as to what that could mean.
This is the whole ball of wax in a nutshell. These 'historic districts' being proposed for Southern New Rochlle are nothing more than shills for ICLEI/Agenda 21.Read more

Amid the statewide discussion of the blizzard & consequent snow removal scenarios that have befallen its citizens - Here is an example of an overzealous plowman haphazardly destroying property with some careless maneuvers behind the wheel.
The first photo depicts the curb as it was, intact. Picture is the portion of the curb that the plow avoided on its collision course.
Here is how it looks now:
The New Rochelle Citizens Reform Club met on Thursday, November 4 at 7:30 PM, at the American Legion Post 8 Hall, 112 North Ave., New Rochelle. This group meets monthly to discuss a host of local issues.
The first item on tonight's agenda was the proposed Iona Dormitory issue that Greg Varian, an attorney and resident of the area, made a brief report. The dorm is being financed by the NY State Dormitory Authority and is located on the north side of New Rochelle. He highlighted the issues surrounding this new construction citing parking, vehicular traffic, and the surrounding building zoning issues. Iona used to be a commuter school that redefined its self as a residential/dormitory college some years ago.Read more
In an effort to promote a healthier indoor environment for homes and other buildings, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has designated October 17th to the 24th as National Radon Awareness Week. Watch the EPA's video HERE
Responsible for upwards of 20,000 deaths per year, radon is second only to smoking as a leading cause of lung cancer. Like carbon monoxide, it is odorless, and colorless and can only be detected by testing of air samples in the home/building. If high levels of radon are detected, the issue can be easily addressed.
A byproduct of the natural decay process of uranium, radon gas breaks down further to form radioactive particles that attach themselves to dust particles. These particles pose their danger when inhaled.
There are solutions that are moderately priced and easily adapted to both new and old buildings. The first step is to have your home tested. The EPA has an excelent guide to get you started, click on A Citizens Guide to Radon to read more from the EPA regarding testing, mitigation techniques, and more.Read more
