raised $43,000 for the cause. For more pictures of the race,
see the centerspread on pages 18 and 19. A dispute between Councilman Mike Barile
and Journal News columnist David McKay Wil-
son reached the breaking point at last Wednes-
day’s Town Board meeting (Sept. 18) when Barile
accused Wilson of harassing and photographing
his family members and threw a water bottle that
hit the journalist.

Barile then got a hold of Wilson’s phone—the
circumstances of which are under dispute—and
took it outside and threw it across the parking lot.

e phone was quickly retrieved.
Barile’s son-in-law, Michael Stern, also had to
be restrained from going after Wilson.
Tensions between Barile and Wilson have re-
mained high for several months since Wilson
began writing a series of “Tax Watch” columns
for e Journal News that have accused Barile
of wrongdoing in the way he’s handled the Swan
Cove park project and, more recently, the issue of
a sewer hookup at Blu Restaurant on South Lake
Boulevard, a property that Barile owns.
Wilson’s columns contend that Barile and
his partner, Tommy Boniello, lacked the nec-
essary approvals from state and New York

Mahopac goes Back to the Garden

August marked the 50th anniversary of Woodstock and to celebrate the occasion, the Recreation Department o ered a performance of Back to the Garden - 1969 as part of
its Fall Concert Series in Chamber Park. And just like the real Woodstock, the skies turned gray and the rain fell. But it didn’t prevent an impressive crowd from showing up,
which dutifully chanted, “No rain! No rain! No rain!” e band played all the classics from the original festival, including tunes from Creedence Clearwater Revival, Joe Cocker,
Je erson Airplane, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and much more.

Gary Adamson,

and leader of
