REMEMBERING ROD SERLING

Who died this date in 1975...

Rodman Edward "Rod" Serling (December 25, 1924 – June 28, 1975) was an American screenwriter, playwright, television producer, and narrator known for his live television dramas of the 1950s and his science-fiction anthology TV series, The Twilight Zone. Serling was active in politics, both on and off the screen, and helped form television industry standards. He was known as the "angry young man" of Hollywood, clashing with television executives and sponsors over a wide range of issues including censorship, racism, and war.

BELA LUGOSI AND MORE, FROM OUR FRIENDS @ EFSP

And now a word from our friends at European Filmstar Postcards:

BELA LUGOSI - We're at the 30th edition of Cinema Ritrovata. Till 2 July we'll stay in Bologna, Italy, to attend the festival and blog about the stars of the festival. A highlight of the programme section UNIVERSAL PICTURES: THE LAEMMLE JUNIOR YEARS is the horror classic Dracula (Tod Browning, 1931). It made a star of Hungarian actor Béla Lugosi (1882–1956), who played the vampire Count Dracula. Lugosi had already started his film career in the silent Hungarian cinema and also appeared in German silent films. In the last phase of his career, he became the star of several of Ed Wood's low budget epics and other poverty row shockers.

TRUSTEE WALSH ADDRESSES RECENT ACCUSATION BY JOHN McBRIDE

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

TRUSTEE WALSH ADDRESSES RECENT ACCUSATION BY JOHN McBRIDE. THE FOLLOWING LETTER APPEARS IN THE 6/23 EDITION OF THE GAZETTE...

To the editor:

Last week John McBride, former chair of both the Croton Democratic Party and the Cortlandt Democratic Party, wrote a letter to the Gazette accusing the Croton United Trustees of violating a New York State Village Law when we voted recently to approve a payment to a village resident for damage done to that resident's property by a village contractor.  The Village Attorney was involved in the discussion before a decision was made on this issue.  After I read Mr. McBride's letter, I spoke to the Village Attorney, who confirmed that the board did not violate either the law that was cited or any other law.

I wish that people would come to me directly to ask clarifying questions or discuss their position if they do not understand why I am doing something, rather than make accusations in either the Gazette or online. If Mr. McBride had come forward, either when the matter was discussed at a work session, or when it was being voted on at our regular meeting, his questions could have been addressed by the Village Attorney directly.

Working together starts with open and honest communication. 

Ken Walsh, Trustee,
Village of Croton-on-Hudson
