(Want to get California Today by email? Here’s the sign-up .) For most people, the biggest day on the political calendar is the first Tuesday in November — Election Day.

As you unpack the beach blanket and camping supplies from the long weekend, consider what you may want to leave in your bag. We recently put together a New York Survival Kit — the 10 items that cost less than $25 that every New Yorker should consider stashing in a bag. We then asked our readers for things that didn’t make our first list, and nearly 400 of you wrote in. We gathered some of the extra recommendations. Plastic baggies “If any of the essentials in your survival kit leak, you can throw them in the bag to avoid damaging your backpack. When you step in a puddle, your socks have a place to go.

Levine May 25, 2018 Good morning on this flawless Friday. While many New Yorkers are taking the holiday weekend to unplug, a handful will be furiously rereading the dictionary and flipping through stacks of flash cards. They’re the New York City students heading to the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Dante Marinacci, 11, and Ilana Propp, Elizabeth Shvarts and Neel Iyer, all 13, will be among the 516 spellers vying to be king or queen bee at the 91st annual competition, which begins on Tuesday in Maryland. We checked in with them as they put on their thinking caps. How do you prepare? Dante (fifth grade, Kinneret Day School in the Bronx): “I write down the word and its definition, and for really hard words, I develop a mnemonic device. “For example, the word … [Read more...] about New York Today: Spelling Stars of the City
