    BROADALBIN -- A car driven by an off-duty state trooper likely hit a Northville man who was found dead in the road, and the victim had a previous DWI conviction for striking a teenage girl, authorities said. The Fulton County Sheriff's Office said the trooper, Brian Beardsley, 32, was driving with his girlfriend on county Highway 110 around 2:41 a.m. Sunday when he struck Chad E. Finch, 29, of South Shore Road. Deputies say the original call to police was made by an unidentified woman who reported that she saw what appeared to be a body in the southbound lane...

    It's been almost nine months since two significant but seemingly unrelated events happened, events symbolized by two separate hills in our nation's capital. The U.S. Senate in an overnight session failed to muster a supermajority of 60 votes to break a filibuster over presidential nominations for the federal court bench. As a result, the minority in the Senate stonewalled four seemingly qualified nominees because they were considered "outside the judicial mainstream." About the same time, despite the pleas and threats of a large minority of its constituency, the Episcopal Church in the United States of America-whose symbolic "see" is the...

    I too was an intern in the J.F.K. White House. I was. This is not one of those humor pieces where the writer pretends to some experience related to the news in order to make an "amusing" point. It was 1961, and I was hired by Pierre Salinger to work in the White House press office, the very same place where Mimi Beardsley, later Fahnestock, was to work the next year. And now that Mimi Fahnestock has been forced to come forward to admit that she had an affair with Kennedy, I might as well tell my story. I notice...

    They say a woman always knows - and Jacqueline Kennedy was no exception. The queen of Camelot was heart-wrenchingly aware of the sexual affairs President John Kennedy engaged in during his years in the White House, a new book reveals. In "An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963," author Robert Dallek details how the President tried to satisfy a voracious appetite for sex by bedding a string of party girls and staffers. In "An Unfinished Life: John F.

    Among the elite young socialites of Wheaton College in the early 1960s, Mimi Beardsley was part of the most envied clique - the most attractive, wealthiest, brightest and most charming girls at the toney school south of Boston. That she could sign herself out on weekends with the words that she would be traveling with ``The President of the United States'' only added to her status. No one then imagined the truth, that the demure former White House intern, now known as Marion ``Mimi'' Fahnestock, was having an extended affair with President John F. Kennedy. It was a secret she...

  • JFK & Mimi: Why it matters

    It was the early 1960s, on the cusp of the sexual revolution, when a 19-year-old White House intern named Mimi Beardsley commenced a sexual relationship with President John F. Kennedy. She was not the only woman to have an affair with JFK, nor he the last President to dally with an intern. Yet the unearthing of the long-buried secret does matter. Like it or not, care or not, it's a piece of American history. Some people think it should have remained hidden. Not Mimi. Marion Fahnestock, now 60 and living on the upper East Side, confirmed her identity to the...

    Mimi Fahnestock leaving Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church yesterday... ...and in 1963, during her alleged affair with then President John F. Kennedy (below) Not Mimi! That was the reaction yesterday from the shocked friends of Marion (Mimi) Fahnestock after she admitted to the Daily News that she was "the Mimi" who had a 17-month affair with former President John F. Kennedy. Their image of the poised and demure administrator who took the pictures at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in Manhattan was jolted by the revelations. "She is the least likely person I would ever have suspected to have had...
