RYE–A 14 year old Rye teen has been arrested in the home invasion hoax last week in Rye, says Rye Police Commssioner William Connors. Last Wednesday a caller told Rye Brook Police that three armed men were in his home at 105 North Street in Rye and had shot his sister. He said the intruders were barricading the door of the home with couches and that he was hiding under a bed. The final message was “it is getting worse,” police say. This caused a huge police response; Rye Police, Rye Brook Police the Westchester County Department of Public Safety, Harrison Police, Port Chester Police and the MTA Police were all involved. A woman was evacuated from the house with her teenaged son and two friends.

MOUNT VERNON, MAMARONECK, PORT CHESTER — We love our street food. But not every town does. Port Chester and Mount Vernon, home to lots of food vendors, are considering very strict regs. In Port Chester, Abendroth Avenue and Don Bosco Place and the parking lots on Highland Street and Marvin Place would be off limits. Mount Vernon is also looking at new regulations after hearing complaints from restaurants and shopkeepers.
PORT CHESTER– Perhaps buoyed by the buzz in Mamaroneck with Club Car at the Mamaroneck train station, the MTA says it’s bringing a Heartland Brewery to the circa 1890 station in Port Chester. Published reports say Heartland plans to spend $1.2 million to renovate the 5,630-square-foot brick building, which will include an outdoor garden, and name the restaurant “Port Chester Hall,” with a planned opening in June 2013. What do you think? Are you on board?

Pawning is the world’s oldest form of banking. Quite simply, pawning an item for money is the same as taking a collateral loan. A person in need to money can bring items of value to a pawn broker, and the broker will assess the value of the items and give out a loan based on their value. The person pawning the item has a specific amount of time to pay the loan back or they lose the item. They can also pay the due interest, and extend the loan.
