OSSINING, NY, and YONKERS, NY — May 8, 2020 — Ossining Mayor Victoria Gearity opens the broadcast enlightening us with the changes demanded of government by the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. While Internet access is a portal by which to remain involved, is everyone engaged, or are other circumstances undermining the transition? Are more people engaged in the politics of the village? What are their concerns? is Ossining as engaged as before. Are there new realities to contend with, and if so, how does the “new” environment assist or hamper society overall.

Congratulations to Ossining High School Science Teacher Douglas Albrecht and OHS Junior XiaXia Saavedra for winning the FIRST Robotics regional awards. From 10-10:30am.

Yonkers Tribune Publisher / Editor-at-Large Hezi Aris engages in the latest news with commensurate analysis. From 10:30-11am and from 11:30am-12Noon

100Sistas Founder Tonia Connor shares her story. The lack of civility toward women, the mistreatment of black men, the gentrification of neighborhoods where many people of color reside, and the anti-immigrant bias signaled Tonia Connor to awake from her apolitical slumber. She instinctively knew politics would bind like minded people to demand their children grow nurtured in safety and with respect of themselves and others, devoid of societal bias and bigotry. She took on the powers that be by challenging 100Sistas to create a new reality. Their binding glue would be each other. She recognized the promises of opportunity where words deficient in meaning. Police mistreatment of black men was no longer acceptable, as was a lack of civility to women, and the anti-immigrant insults used to demean them, as well as the challenge gentrification posed to all people of color. We learn of Tonia Conner’s focus, the pain she perceived that others refused to admit. We learn if she is discouraged or exalted by her struggle, and focused on the change she envisions. She shares that visions with us this Friday morning. We learn of the catalyst that woke this “sleeping beauty” from a fairy tale to an enlightened reality. From 11-11:30am.
