Peter Marengo also left a very important 9/7 comment regarding last
year's event at a posting; it is re-printed as follows below: "I am writing about the Toughman event that is occurring today in our
village. As a practicing Catholic, when an entire village is taken over
to the extent of shutting down major roads and arteries on an entire
Sunday morning in order to host such an event is disgraceful. My family
and I were late for 8:00 Mass (we attend St. Augustine in Ossining,
just over the 9A bridge), even though we left the house at 7:35 knowing
that we were in for detours. The detour for a 2-mile trip was 15 miles.
Traditionally, Sundays are set aside, especially in the
mornings, as a day of rest, reflection and out of respect for
faith-based people. I understand that we only have 2 weekend days per
week but we should reconsider hosting these events or at least propose
that we wait until 12 noon to altar the roads so that people may go to
their respective church services. By law, citizens cannot buy alcohol
until that time on a Sunday for religious purposes – we should do the
same for things like this that have an even more dramatic effect on the
community at large."
