Bedford proposes new
vape-shop ban amidst
national concerns


Back to Moving once more against e-cigarettes, Bedford’s Town Board
school is expected to impose the same strict limits on vaping sales that it
decreed last year only to see a judge put them on hold this spring.
Zef and Duke, 2, joined Darian Dedvukaj, 7, in the first-day-of-school picture before Darian headed to
second grade at Meadow Pond Elementary School. e board scheduled a public hearing for next week on a re-
vamped local law which, like last year’s, would ban e-cigarette re-
tailing in most of Bedford. e measure’s swift approval—seen as
likely after Tuesday, Sept. 17, hearing—would give the town one of
the strongest local laws in the state, Supervisor Chris Burdick said.

e town’s move came amid a crescendo of coast-to-coast vap-
ing headlines, none of them good news for the self-styled tobacco
alternative. By week’s end, e-cigarettes nationwide were suspected
in at least ve deaths and as many as 450 cases of serious lung ill-
ness. at led state and federal o cials to warn against using vape
products while investigators for the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention probe their safety.

In New York, where health o cials last week reported 34 vape-
related lung illnesses, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, in a weekend state-
ment, echoed the federal recommendation, urging residents to
stop vaping pending the outcome of the CDC probe.

Bedford’s proposed new law contains language similar to last
year’s prohibitions. But it also comes with a couple of key di er-

e new statute once again forbids sales of so-called “electronic
nicotine delivery systems”anywhere other than the commercial strip
of Route 117 in Bedford Hills. But in reworking the law, Bedford
also took a new legal tack, invoking the town’s broad authority to
regulate behavior, and it exempted from its provisions ve vaping
outlets—two of them in Katonah—that had sued the town.

Cub Scouts take to Yankee Stadium

Members of Vista-Lewisboro Pack 101 Cub Scouts joined other scouts from the
Westchester-Putnam Council recently in an on- eld parade at Yankee Stadium be-
fore the game.

“It was a once-in-a lifetime-experience to be on such hallowed baseball ground,”
said Cubmaster Bill Bongiorno. “We felt the granular nature of the warning track,
and got to see views only players experience. We also made the big screen in front of
thousands of fans.

“As if that wasn’t enough, the game went to extra innings with the Yankees winning
in the bottom of the 11th with a blast from DJ LeMahieu.”

Prior to the parade, scouts were treated to a visit to Monument Park to see retired
number plaques, statues and tributes to former Yankee greats and Hall of Famers.

“Being in scouting opens so many doors to unique life experiences such as this,”
Bongiorno said. “Wherever we went in the stadium in our uniforms, we were greeted
with approval and by people who had been scouts themselves.”

Lourdes rallied back from a

to 27-21. But John Jay pulled
away in the fourth quarter.

Candarelli praised the
performances of Mercer,
Connolly and Shane
Martinsen, who plays on both
o ensive and defensive lines.

Martinsen, the coach said,
“helped lead a very young and
inexperienced o ensive line
to a very solid performance
against a really stout Lourdes
front six.”

Candarelli said Lourdes was
a “really well-coached group.”

“We’re really happy to walk
away with a win against a
great program in Our Lady of
Lourdes,” he said. “Good win
for our kids.”
