One more parade for Egan

The Irish Echo answers one of the big questions about the transition from Cardinal Egan to Archbishop Dolan: Who will greet the St. Patrick’s Day Parade outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral?

Egan will have the honor for the last time.

It should be something of a farewell to New York (even though he’s not actually moving away).

Gary Stern

Gary Stern covered education in the Lower Hudson Valley for several years during the early 1990s. Now's he back on the beat. He believes that schools are one of the main reasons that people live around here and that educational issues -- from curriculum to financing -- are among the most challenging things that journalists can write about. He continues to be amazed by the complexity of educational jargon. Gary got his B.A. at SUNY Buffalo and his M.A. from the University of Missouri Journalism School (where his master's thesis was about the best ways to cover education). He lives in White Plains with his wife and two sons, who attend public schools.
