FOOTBALL John Jay eager for spring season
Wolves coaches, players adapt to new normal
To watch this interview, visit TapIntoKLT.net.
BY GERARD GAROFOLO
Football, declared a high-risk sport by
the higher ups, has been moved to March,
presumably at a time when COVID-19 is
less of a threat to coaches and players.
e move, made by the New York State
Public High School Athletic Association,
puts football in the “Fall II” season, along
with volleyball and girls swimming. From
the weather to loss of practice time, the
spring start presents the John Jay High
School coaching sta with many challeng-
es, but also o ers some advantages. Jimmy
Clark, head coach of the Wolves, sat down
with e Katonah-Lewisboro Times to
talk about the upcoming season.
John Jay has put together a 28-3 record
the last three seasons under Clark, winning
the Section 1 Class A title in 2018.
With the COVID-19 virus looming,
how does the preparation for a March
2021 football season di er from fall
seasons in the past?
We’re looking at something we’ve never
seen before. Everything right now is just so

rules every day, so we’re just concerned with
our athletes’ mental and social-emotional
health, so we’re doing a lot of Zoom meet-
ings and making sure that everyone’s OK.

Turning lemons into...
a deli and beer garden
Empty Metro North commuter lot proves
inconvenient for new convenience store
BY BRETT FREEMAN

Patrons can enjoy pre-packaged sandwiches, salads and coffee Road in Katonah, which is located im-
in the outdoor garden. The owner is applying to turn the site into mediately next to the Metro North The beer cave in the back of Paulie’s. The cave includes craft

e lot had a year’s-long waiting list
for commuters. Like any good entre-
preneur who does his homework, Suss-
mann counted the vehicles. ere were
296 cars, to be exact.
at was at least 296 commuters who
might want a cup of co ee or a pastry
in the morning and a 6-pack of beer, a
gallon of milk or a loaf of bread in the
evening. And each of them must walk
past his store to catch the train.
So, he spoke to the landlord, signed a
lease, xed the place up to make it look
clean and contemporary. And then the
coronavirus struck Westchester County.
“I opened up next to an empty park-
ing lot in the middle of a pandemic,”
Sussmann said. Like everyone else, he
was hoping the shut-down would be
temporary, but he didn’t anticipate just
how much life would change as residents
are able to work remotely.
During the interview with this news-
paper in the middle of the afternoon on
Wednesday, Sept. 30, we counted six
cars. But all good businesspeople know
that they have to roll with the punches.
After opening his store at the end of
August, Sussmann said he is already try-
ing to reinvent himself.
“What little business I do have, nine
out of 10 are looking for a deli,” said
Sussmann, who is a previous co-owner
of the very popular Route 100 Market in
Somers. So, he has submitted an appli-
cation to open a deli, which must be ap-
proved by various government entities.
“I’m really looking forward to getting
back into the deli business,” he said.
Currently, patrons can still come in
for ready-to-go items like salads, sand-
wiches and freshly baked goods, which
are prepared by a supplier. ere is a
fenced-o garden where patrons can en-
joy a bite to eat or sip on a cup of co ee
while hanging out.
e fenced-o garden is the catalyst
for Sussmann’s second new idea; he will
be applying for a license to dispense
craft beers on tap and use his outdoor
setting as a beer garden.
Sussmann remains optimistic.
“I still know it’s going to work,” he
said. “It’s going to be great when we’re
halfway back to normal.”
