‘Obamacare’ questions answered
By ALISSA SCOTT
[email protected]
Alissa Scott/Recorder staff
Susan E. White, a program manager for Nathan Littauer
Hospital & Nursing Home, answers questions about the
Affordable Care Act, commonly known as “Obamacare,”
for a room of about 10 insurance and health professionals Wednesday at Centro Civico in Amsterdam.
There are still many locals who
don’’t know that ““Obamacare”” and
the Affordable Care Act are the
same, Gayle Grajewski said.
That’’s why Grajewski, an insurance enroller at St. Mary’’s
Healthcare, and 10 others in the
health and insurance fields met at
Centro Civico in Amsterdam
Wednesday night to debunk myths
and further explain specifics.
““The population in this area, a lot
of them don’’t have health insurance,”” said Susan E. White, a program manager at Nathan Littauer
Hospital & Nursing Home. ““So we
want to focus on this area. With us
being down here, we’’re just trying to
get the word out.””
The goal of the Affordable Care
Act, signed into law in 2010, is to
““improve access to affordable health
coverage for everyone and protect
consumers from abusive insurance
company practices,”” according to
documents provided at the meeting.
White helped organize the presentation and invited the public to
attend, though the small crowd was
made up of volunteers of the Court
Appointed Special Advocates and
employees of Centro Civico and St.
Mary’’s Healthcare.

A Canajoharie man is returning
to politics for the first time in
nearly 40 years to challenge
Montgomery County’’s outgoing
board of supervisors chairman
for the District 3 legislator post.
Democrat Roy S. Dimond
faces Republican John W.
Thayer in the Nov. 5 election.
The voters’’ pick will represent
the villages of Ames,
Canajoharie and Palatine Bridge,
the town of Root, and the eastern portion of the town of
Canajoharie.
Dimond, 59, took his first stab
at politics upon his election to
the Mohawk town council in
1977. He says he was the
youngest councilman elected to
that board, but after serving the
four-year term, didn’’t pursue
election again, until now. He’’s
an operations supervisor for a

state department he declined to
name.
Thayer, 53, has been Root’’s
supervisor for the past six years.
He’’s finishing up his third twoyear term. He previously served

THE NEWS IN BRIEF
Germany checks US
over cell tap rumors
Gold stars promote
healthier eating
BERLIN (AP) — The German
Foreign Ministry says it has
summoned the U.S. ambassador in the wake of allegations
that American intelligence may
have targeted Chancellor
Angela Merkel’s cellphone.
The ministry said Ambassador
John B. Emerson is expected
to meet this afternoon with
Foreign Minister Guido
Westerwelle, who will “spell out
the position of the German
government.”
The U.S. Embassy said it had
no comment.
Merkel’s government says
she complained to President
Barack Obama in a phone call
Wednesday after receiving
information her cellphone may
have been monitored. The
White House said it isn’t monitoring and won’t monitor
Merkel’s communications, but
conspicuously didn’t say that
they were never monitored.
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A
nutritional rating system using
gold stars affixed to price labels
on grocery store shelves
appears to have shifted buying
habits, potentially providing
another tool to educate consumers on how to eat healthier,
according to a new study.
The independent study examining a proprietary gold star system used in Maine-based
Hannaford Supermarkets suggested it steered shoppers away
from items with no stars toward
healthier foods that merited gold
stars.
“Our results suggest that pointof-sale nutrition information programs may be effective in providing easy-to-find nutrition information that is otherwise nonexistent, difficult to obtain or difficult
to understand,” the researchers
wrote in the study, published last
week in the journal Food Policy.
It’s the most rigorous scientific
study focusing on Guiding Stars,
which was instituted in 2006 in
Hannaford stores and is now
licensed for use in more than
1,800 stores in the U.S. and
Canada.
Researchers from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture, the
Food and Drug Administration
and the University of Florida
focused on the cereal aisle,
where it can be challenging to
make healthy choices amid conflicting health claims and a multitude of sugary offerings targeting
children.
Some Dems call for
webmasters’ jobs
WASHINGTON (AP) — The
principal contractors responsible for the federal government’s trouble-plagued health
insurance website say the
Obama administration shares
responsibility for the snags that
have crippled the system.
Executives of CGI Federal,
which built the federal
HealthCare.gov website serving 36 states, and QSSI, which
designed the part that verifies
applicants’ income and other
personal details, are testifying
today before the House Energy
and Commerce Committee.
The hearing comes as
President Barack Obama’s
allies are starting to fret about
the political fallout. Democrats
had hoped to run for re-election next year on the benefits
of the health care law for millions of uninsured Americans.
Instead, computer problems
are keeping many consumers
from signing up through new
online markets.
One House Democrat says
the president needs to “man
up” and fire somebody, while
others are calling for signup
deadlines to be extended and
a reconsideration of the penalties individuals will face next
year if they remain uninsured.
On that point, a change in the
timeline for signing up for coverage is underway, the White
House said. Consumers have
until Dec. 15 to apply for coverage that’s effective Jan. 1.
Even though open enrollment
lasts until March 31, people
would face a penalty if they
postpone buying coverage
beyond mid-February. Calling
that a “disconnect,” the White

Candles and teddy bears are placed at Danvers High School prior to a candlelight vigil to mourn
the death of Colleen Ritzer, a 24-year-old math teacher on Wednesday, in Danvers, Mass. Ritzer
was found slain in the woods behind the high school, and Danvers High School student Philip
Chism, 14, found walking along a highway overnight, was charged with killing her.
Teen charged in teacher’s death
By JAY LINDSAY
The Associated Press
DANVERS, Mass. —— She had a bright smile, a
penchant for pink and an admitted overenthusiasm
for the subjects she taught. The lanky boy was just a
decade younger, new to the school, with a pleasant
manner but little to say.
Sometime on their last day at the school together
Tuesday, prosecutors say, teacher Colleen Ritzer and
14-year-old student Philip Chism crossed paths, and
he killed her.
Ritzer’’s body was later found in the woods behind
Danvers High School, where she taught and Chism
attended classes. And on Wednesday, Chism was
being held without bail after being arraigned on a
murder charge.
Ryan Kelleher, who had Ritzer for algebra and
played soccer with Chism, said none of it made sense.
““From what I know about him and seeing him every
day, it just doesn’’t add up that he would do such a
thing, unless this was all an act to fool somebody,””
said Kelleher, 17.
Officials haven’’t released a cause of death or discussed a motive in the killing. A court filing said
Ritzer and Chism knew each other from the high
school, but it didn’’t elaborate.
House said officials will soon
issue policy guidance allowing
consumers to sign up by the
end of March without penalty.
More cyber-bullying
victims seek family
WASHINGTON (AP) — Sarah
Ball was a 15-year-old high
school sophomore at Hernando
High School in Brooksville, Fla.,
when a friend posted on
Facebook: “I hate Sarah Ball,
and I don’t care who knows.”
Then there was the Facebook
group “Hernando Haters” asking
to rate her attractiveness, plus
Blood found in a second-floor school bathroom
helped lead investigators to Ritzer’’s body, after she
was reported missing Tuesday.
Investigators said in court documents that the arrest
was made based on statements by the suspect, evidence from school surveillance cameras and corroborating evidence in multiple places.
Chism’’s family and attorney did not comment.
Chism had moved to Massachusetts from Tennessee
before the start of the school year and was a top scorer on the school’’s junior varsity soccer team, said Kyle
Cahill, a junior who also plays soccer.
He said the team had been wondering where Chism
was when he skipped a team dinner Tuesday night.
““We’’re all just a family. It just amazes me really,””
Cahill said. ““He wasn’’t violent at all. He was really
the opposite of aggressive.””
The Boston Red Sox held a moment of silence for
Ritzer on Wednesday at Fenway Park before Game 1
of the World Series.
Hundreds of people later turned out for a candlelight vigil at the school parking lot, many wearing
pink sweatshirts, bows or T-shirts in tribute to Ritzer
and her favorite color.
““She supported all of us. We should be there to support her,”” said Danvers senior Courtney Arnoldy, 18,
who had Ritzer for a teacher.
an anonymous email calling her
a “waste of space.” And this text
arrived on her 16th birthday:
“Wow, you’re still alive?
Impressive. Well happy birthday
anyway.”
It wasn’t until Sarah’s mom,
who had access to her daughter’s online passwords, saw the
messages that the girl told her
everything.
More young people are reaching out to family members after
being harassed or taunted
online, and it’s helping. A poll
released today by The
Associated Press-NORC Center
for Public Affairs Research and
MTV found incidents of “digital
abuse” are still prevalent but
declining somewhat. It found a
growing awareness among
teenagers and young adults
about harm from online meanness and cyberbullying, as well
as a slight increase among those
willing to tell a parent or sibling.
“It was actually quite embarrassing, to be honest,” remembers Ball, now an 18-year-old
college freshman. But “really,
truly, if it wasn’t for my parents, I
don’t think I’d be where I’m at
today.”

BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian authorities have released a total of 61
women detainees, an activist
group said today, the latest in a
three-way prisoner exchange that
was one of the more ambitious
negotiated deals in the country’s
civil war in which rival factions
remain largely opposed to any
bartered peace.
Meanwhile, electricity returned
to parts of Damascus, hours after
a power cut plunged the capital
and other parts of the country into
darkness.
The Britain-based Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights
said today the government of
President Bashar Assad had
freed the women over the past
two days. There was no immediate comment from Syrian officials,
nor details on who the women
are or their current location.
The Observatory said the
release was part of a complicated
hostage swap last week brokered
by Qatar and the Palestinian
Authority that saw Syrian rebels
free nine Lebanese Shiite
Muslims, while Lebanese gunmen simultaneously released two
Turkish pilots.

Students at St. Mary’’s Institute in
Amsterdam ran laps around the school
Wednesday morning to help keep tuition
affordable during the ninth annual Race for
Education.
Early childhood classes through students in
grade eight began submitting the addresses of
out-of-town friends and family members in
September.
Throughout the following weeks, they prepared letters seeking sponsorships for the race.
In past years, the students have helped raise
as much as $12,000, which has benefited not
only tuition, but has helped purchase school
supplies and funded educational programs and
assemblies.
By Wednesday at noon, they had already
raised $6,000, with a goal of $10,000.
Students decorated bibs to wear in the race,
and as they completed a lap around the
school, the quarter-mile mark, volunteers
punched holes in the bibs.
Volunteers in the older student race, grades
four through eight, said they believe the highest number of laps was 22.
““I’’m just really trying to run 11 laps,”” Kateri
Gullion, a fourth-grader, said. ““I just really
want to break my record from last year.””
Later, as she got her 11th hole-punch,
Gullion screamed with joy: ““I beat my
record.””
Students and classes tallying the most laps
will be rewarded with prizes like a pizza party
with the principal, dress-down days where students don’’t have to wear their uniforms, and
an ice cream party.
““This is just the best thing,”” said Reagan
Perretta, a volunteer who has been helping out
since her 10-year-old daughter was in early
childhood classes. ““It brings the whole school
together. It’’s fun to interact with the kids and
it’’s so good for the school.””
After the race, students were given apples
picked by alumni and the cores were saved for
a student to take to a horse farm.

Members of the Tribes Hill Fire Department taught fire prevention tips to the students at Mom’s Morning Out Preschool in
Fonda on Oct. 18. Preschool students practiced techniques
like “stop, drop and roll,” learned about fire safety prevention
measures, and interacted with the firefighters throughout the
day. Above, Tribes Hill firefighter Lt. Chris Fernandez allows
preschool student Reagan Webber to operate the water hose,
while Tribes Hill firefighter Paul Slansky operates the engine.
The event was in recognition of National Fire Prevention Month
during October, which had agencies all across Montgomery

October 23, 2013
Lucy Teresa Crandall, 86, passed away peacefully in her Flagler
Beach, FL home on October 10, 2013, after battling cancer for two
years.
Lucy was born January 22, 1927 in Schenectady, NY to the late
Elmer and Elizabeth Larmour.
Lucy was married to George Crandall (1923-2008) September 24,
1944. They were married for 63 years. She had five beautiful children.
Lucy's hobbies included gardening, cooking, entertaining friends,
fishing, racquetball and playing cards. She was industrious; always
busy doing things for others.
She will be most remembered for her zeal in the Christian ministry.
For nearly 70 years, and up until the day of her death she was actively taking advantage of any opportunity to share Bible truth with as
many as possible, including God Jehovah's promises regarding a resurrection of the dead to perfect life in paradise on earth (John 5:28, 29,
Psm 37:9-11).
Lucy is survived by her sister Rosie Epting of Glenville, NY; her
children Lester I. Crandall (Wells, NY), George S. Crandall, III (Wells,

Stephanie "Fannie" Masto, 89, formerly of Bayard
Street, Amsterdam, passed away Wednesday morning
October 23, 2013 at the Capstone Center for
Rehabilitation and Nursing in Amsterdam.
She was born in Amsterdam, NY on December 3,
1923 the daughter of the late Stephen and Angelina
Calucci Picciocca.
Stephanie was a lifelong Amsterdam resident and
was
a 1940 graduate of Amsterdam High School.
MASTO
Stephanie was employed by various glove mills in
Amsterdam over the years with extended stays at the Earl Noone and
Rose Snell shops. More importantly to ““Fannie”” was her life as a
devoted wife and loving mother who took great pride in her responsibilities as a homemaker and caretaker for her family. Her love of family extended to her close relationships with her brothers and sisters and
her joy in spoiling her nieces and nephews and later in life their children.
She was a communicant of the former St. Michael the Archangel
Roman Catholic Church and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Roman Catholic
Church in Amsterdam. She was a member of the church Altar Rosary
Society and the St. Agnello Club.
““Fannie”” enjoyed bingo, well winning bingo, and was an avid card
player. But mostly she enjoyed her friends and relatives and the wonderful times they shared together over a lifetime in Amsterdam. Many
of her wonderful times included the years when she and her husband,
Howard, Sr., co-owned and operated The Beachcomber on Sacandaga
Lake, where old friends and new friends came each summer to create
new memories.
Stephanie was predeceased by her beloved husband Howard Masto
Sr. who she married on November 19, 1950 and who passed away on
May 5, 1990. She was also predeceased by her cherished son, David
G. Masto on September 28, 1979. David’’s loss left a void in
Stephanie’’s heart that would never be filled.
Survivors include her dear son, Howard Masto Jr. and his wife Susan
of Schenectady, NY and her three favorite (and only) grandchildren,
Gregory, Stephen and Matthew Masto also of Schenectady, NY. She is
also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and great nieces and great
nephews as well as brothers and sisters-in-law all of whom she had a
close and valued relationship.
She was preceded in death by her seven siblings, Sam Picciocca,
Jennie Agresta, Julia Martuscello, Mary DeMeo, Anthony Picciocca,
John Picciocca, and Theresa Bilinski.
The family wishes to thank the hard working aides and nurses of
Capstone Center. Their care and affection for Fannie will always be
remembered. During her last several years, many people provided support and comfort in her time of need. Stephanie’’s son, Howard would
like to express his gratitude to everyone, but would especially like to
thank his cousins Donna Bull and Ro Sinicropi, his aunt, Laura Brach,
and his mom’’s in-home caregivers Lynda Spagnola and Sue Russo for
their constant dedication to Stephanie’’s quality of life.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday October 26, 2013 at 10:15
A.M. at the Betz, Rossi & Bellinger Family Funeral Home, 171 Guy
Park Ave, Amsterdam followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:15

Law gives boomers
hepatitis C tests
ALBANY (AP) — Gov.
Andrew Cuomo has signed a
bill into law that requires hospitals and other health care
providers in New York to offer
hepatitis C tests to baby
boomers.
Between 3 million and 4 million people in the United
States have hepatitis C, a
blood-borne disease that causes liver damage and is blamed
for 15,000 deaths a year. The
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention says people
born between 1945 and 1965
are five times more likely to
have it than people of other
age groups.
Beginning next year, people
born between 1945 and 1965
must be offered a hepatitis C
screening test or diagnostic
test when they are a patient at
a hospital, clinic or a doctor’s
office.
NY settles probe of
mortgage firm fees
ALBANY (AP) — New York
financial regulators say they’ve
settled an investigation into
Prospect Mortgage discount
fees with a $3 million penalty.
The Department of Financial
Services says the Sherman
Oaks, Calif.-based company
has also agreed to pay more
than $427,000 in refunds to
270 New York homeowners.
Superintendent Benjamin
Lawsky said Wednesday their
examination showed the company charged borrowers for
interest rate discounts that
never materialized from 2008
to 2011.
Prospect has a nationwide
network and about $7 billion in
new loans last year. The company didn’t initially reply
Wednesday to requests for
comment.
The agreement also cites
other violations. It says
Prospect will file quarterly
reports for three years showing
its compliance steps.
Man charged with
animal cruelty
COBLESKILL (AP) — A 65year-old man is facing animal
cruelty charges after baiting
and trapping four cats belonging to a neighbor.
Troopers arrested Donald
Brown of Cobleskill on four
counts of aggravated cruelty to
animals. A state police investigation revealed that Brown
committed the crime approximately two weeks ago.
Troopers did not indicate the
current status of the cats or
how seriously they were
harmed.
Brown was arraigned in
Cobleskill Town Court and
released on his own recognizance. He’s due back in court
at a later date.

supervisor because he thinks
he’’s had more impact at the
county level for taxpayers. He
cited the Montgomery-OtsegoSchoharie Solid Waste
Management Authority as an
example.
““We paid MOSA millions of
dollars through subsidy of the
waste stream and GAT payments, but it’’s reduced greatly
in recent years,”” said Thayer,
who served as MOSA’’s chairman until stepping down last
year.
He pointed out in 2008, the
county paid out $1.8 million
for gross annual tonnage
requirements. This year, however, the county paid $80,000
in shortage fees.
““I think the legislature is providing a fresh start,”” Thayer
continued. ““Hopefully there
will be no preconceived
notions when the legislators sit
down for the first time, and we
will see some free thinking,
and the ability to discuss different agenda items or issues
we’’re looking at.””
Thayer said there are a lot of
unanswered questions in terms
of the new government’’s operation, such as committee structure, rules of procedure, and
establishing a relationship with
the new county executive.
Thayer said his ideal is to
change the existing climate at
committee meetings, some of
which currently last between
five and 10 minutes.
““It partly hasn’’t changed this
year because of the change in
government. There is a lot of
criticism that the current board
of supervisors is letting everything pass on to the legislature.
Some of it’’s founded, some of
it’’s unfounded. But the work
being done is not always visible,”” Thayer said, adding he’’s
been actively meeting with
Fulton County officials on
multiple subjects, including
solid waste.
Dimond also used the phrase
““fresh start”” in talking about
the new form of government.
““If you have a new form of
government, and put the same
people in, it’’s not really new,””
Dimond said. ““We need new
blood, and new ideas. I want to
help put the county into some
new direction.””
““If it was as economically
strong as we’’d like, I wouldn’’t
be running,”” Dimond added.
““I’’m a strong candidate with
three college degrees and a lot
of experience in public policy
and budgeting. I can offer new
perspective.””
One of his degrees is in public administration.
““Government is a public service, and we as public servants
provide specific services to the

people in need,”” Dimond said.
““People who know policy making know there are different
‘‘customers.’’ One is the taxpayers. Another is colleagues, or
department heads. We need to
be providing customers with
the best possible policy.””
““The best public policy is one
made exclusively for taxpayers, not for government
employees or elected officials.
That’’s where I’’ll keep my
focus at,”” Dimond added.
Economic development
Some of Dimond’’s ““new perspectives,”” as he called it, are
in the realm of economic
development. He thinks the
county should work on increasing its tax base with both
industry and home construction.
He said that’’s a two-pronged
effort of lobbying state representatives for relief, and giving
the county employees the
direction to do things differently, and the tools they need to
do their jobs.
““We’’re losing population,
we’’re losing industry, and we
have a decaying tax base,””
Dimond said. ““My solution
would affect all three. We need
to lower our taxes, but I don’’t
think we can cut our way out
of it.””
Dimond said he’’d like to see
the housing industry flourish,
and increase the volume of seasonal residences.
““We need to lobby the state to
remove the inheritance tax, so
people aren’’t afraid they’’ll lose
everything they want to pass
on to their families if they
build houses here,”” Dimond
said.
He also said he wants to see
new industry by capitalizing on
assets like the county’’s three
Thruway exits.
““There are a lot of missed
opportunities,”” Dimond said.
As an example, he cited this
year’’s statewide ballot proposal
that, if approved, will allow up
to seven casinos in three areas
of the state, one of which
includes Montgomery County.
““Why isn’’t anyone talking
about this? Why isn’’t anyone
from page 1
““report it.””
““We want to remind them not to be bystanders,”” said Bowles. ““A lot
of kids see it, but don’’t say anything until it’’s too late.””
Student Haiden Argersinger said he’’s been bullied before, but it
doesn’’t happen anymore. When it did, his friends used to step in to
help.
““There is a little bit of bullying, but for the most part, this is a really nice school, and people try to help each other,”” Argersinger said. ““I
think it’’s good what we’’re doing here, though, because it’’s better to do
something before there’’s a problem, than trying to fix a problem that’’s
already there.””
School Principal Elizabeth Donovan said Wednesday’’s events mark
just one day in the month-long participation of anti-bully and antidrug use awareness month.
““Every day this week we’’re focusing on the dangers of drugs, and
next week it’’s anti-bullying. We’’re going to have a mix-it-up day to
get them to sit with different kids at lunch, and break down some
cliques.””
developing a pitch for that?””
Dimond asked. ““I’’m not necessarily a proponent of gambling,
and I’’m not saying it’’s something I would support without
first taking an extensive look at
it, but we have three Thruway
exits here, and it’’s something
that should be explored.””
Thayer agrees that economic
development is a priority.
““I have a tremendous desire
to be involved in the economic
development portion of county
government, because that’’s
where the greatest potential is
for changing the cost of government for property owners,””
Thayer said.
Thayer said he’’d like the legislature to be ““more supportive”” and ““more involved”” with
its economic development
department. He said he’’s met
regularly with the industrial
development agency during his
tenure as chairman, and would
have liked to see more of his
fellow supervisors there.
““The board of supervisors
would usually back off, and let
things happen. Well, economic
development isn’’t one of those
things you just let happen. The
new legislature needs to move
forward and bring economic
development into the county,
and bring a different atmosphere to our meetings,”” Thayer
said.
Specifically, Thayer said the
legislature needs to discuss
what the assets are, and what
needs work.
““What is our employee pool?
What are our schools doing? I
don’’t want to detract from anything, but we need to be aware
of everything we have offer,””
he said.
Thayer said the county also
needs to reach out to its neighbors, and not just those to the
north in Fulton County.
““This regional approach
needs to be expanded upon. We
can’’t rely on a countywide economic plan. We need more than
any single county can provide
on its own. It’’s not just Fulton
County we need to be talking
to. We have to work with
everyone —— Herkimer, Otsego
and Schoharie, too.””

stressed the importance of
spreading information about the
new health care law to get everyone on board. The more people
who follow the law and obtain
health care, the less everyone
will pay for their premiums,
White said.
““If you have a car that’’s
$20,000, and only you pay for it,
well you’’re paying $20,000,””
White said. ““But if you get
20,000 people, you’’re only paying $1.””
The new regimen began Oct. 1
and open enrollment for
Medicare began Oct. 15, running
until Dec. 7.
Since Oct. 15, ““navigators””
with Nathan Littauer have successfully registered four people.
While the number seemed low to
the rest of the group, she said it
actually is significant.
A navigator is an insurance
enroller and can be assigned to
help patrons apply for health
insurance under the new law.
Once registered in a government
portal, identifying information
will generate different options of
health care to choose from.
White said there is also an
option to log on to my.ny.gov and
apply without the help of a navigator or call the enrollment hotline, though the website has had
several glitches in its early
stages. Navigators are helpful,
she said, because they don’’t have
a bias toward health insurance
selection.
One concern identified among
the group were potential loopholes in the system —— what if
people just don’’t register for
health care? Then, the group
members said, they would be in
the same situation they are currently in.
White explained that after
enrollment is over, and after a
three-month lapse in health coverage, people will be fined ——
$95 per adult and $47.50 per
child, or 1 percent of a person’’s
gross income, whichever is more.
During the next couple of years,
fines will continue to increase.
The projected amount for 2015 is
a $2,000 fine.
The penalty will be taken out of
what would have been refunded
during tax season, White said.
Which begged the question:
What if someone doesn’’t file
their taxes, or doesn’’t have an
income? Many locals CASA
interacts with do not.
““I guarantee that for the first
two years, we’’re going to have a
lot of people say, ‘‘Yeah, I’’m not
doing this. I’’m going to take my
$95, pay my fine and be done
with it,’’”” White said, scoffing.
““But it’’s going to take that one
event in their life, one accident,
one surgery. Little Johnny’’s
going to be playing baseball and
he’’s going to be hit in the face
with a fast ball and blow out his
orbital, and he’’s going to end up
in the hospital where he’’s looking
at a $10,000 hospital bill.””
That’’s also why the government
is pushing advertisements and
local meetings to help educate
people about health care so they
join and avoid fines and penalties.
Once the discussion neared the
end, a volunteer of CASA said,
““this isn’’t as bad as it seems.
Why is everyone so upset about
it?””
““It’’s new,”” White said. ““Just the
simple fact that it’’s new. And
people don’’t like being told what
to do.””
When laws were first passed
requiring people to wear helmets
or seat belts, people were outraged, White said. Now, it’’s second nature.
““This too will pass,”” White
said. ““And not as in it’’s going to
go away. Once people realize that
it’’s here to stay, they’’ll calm
down.””

SPOTLIGHT ON EDUCATION: WILBUR H. LYNCH LITERACY ACADEMY
Lynch roars into new school year
Transitioning to a much bigger
and, at times, overwhelming
school environment can make
and student feel apprehensive.
Luckily, the incoming sixth
graders at Lynch Literacy
Academy had the benefit of seventh and eighth grader mentors to
help them.
The mentor program is part of
the Lynch ROARS Positive
Behavior
Interventions
&
Supports program. The mentors
volunteered some of their time
during the summer to attend
training.
On Sept. 4, a day before the
seventh and eighth graders officially started, the mentors ran the
opening day for all sixth grade
students.
Mentors led the new students in
““getting to know you”” activities,
taught them how to open combination locks and helped them to

find their way around the building to classes.
Mentors also had the opportunity to share the ““inside scoop””
about Lynch with the sixth
graders, including the PBIS Paws
program, who to see if they have
a problem with friends, and tips
about getting around the building.
ROARS is an acronym for positive behaviors Lynch staffers
want to see from students.
ROARS stands for Respectful,
Ownership, Attitude, Responsible and Safe.
The mentor program is just one
of several activities sponsored by
Photos submitted
the Lynch ROARS PBIS program, which also includes the
Pride Pass, a holiday shop, a field
day and other quarterly activities
to reward students who behave
appropriately at Lynch.
In their own words
The following are quotes from
mentors at Lynch Literacy
Academy about the school’’s
opening day:
•• Ivy Dulusz: ““I think the day is
going well so far. There are kids
who are starting to get used to the
school.””
•• Jacob Reed: ““The kids have
been very respectful to us.””
Sixth-graders were asked ““How
is your first day going?”” Here are
some of their responses:
•• Ian Healy: ““Going good!””
•• Caydran Gravely: ““Great.
Meeting new people and hanging
out.””
•• Lasha Gonzalez: ““Lockers are
really hard to open.””
•• Alanis Seeley: ““It was really
good and the teachers are really
nice.””
•• Tina Cartengena: ““Finding
classrooms was hard.””
•• Chris Lent: ““First day was fun.

•• Grace Clark: ““I like that you
don’’t have to walk in a line with
your teacher. You have more
freedom. I like Mrs. [Maria]
Rossi and Mrs. [Christine]
Sherlock a lot.””
•• Jacob Palczak: ““I was nervous
a little at first, but know that I
met all the teachers it’’s a lot more
comforting and better ... easier.””
Sure, you’d choose a five-star restaurant.
Why should your
orthopedic care
be any different?
When you’re searching for the best restaurant or hotel, naturally, you choose the one
with five stars. And when your joints like knees and hips start giving you problems,
you should choose a five-star hospital as well.
St. Mary’s Healthcare in Amsterdam and its nationally recognized orthopedic surgeons have achieved five-star ratings by Healthgrades 2013
for excellent outcomes and expertise in joint, total knee and hip replacement, and hip fracture treatment for 4 years in a row. Our post-surgery
rehabilitation programs are also top-notch. Healthgrades is the nation’s leading provider of information to help consumers make an informed
decision about a physician or hospital.

OPINION
The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
A fresh start for the county
To the editor:
I am excited that we have chosen a new direction in
Montgomery County. I am asking for your support for
county executive because I believe we need not look
backward. Now is the time to seize this opportunity and
on Nov. 5, with your support, we can take our first step
forward.
Make no mistake about it we face some tough challenges. Years of dysfunction, poor budgeting and fiscal
mismanagement has left seniors and families across
Montgomery County bearing the burden. While we have
made tough decisions in our own lives, our government
hasn’’t responded. Often times it seems many of them
think it is more about them than the people they are there
to serve.
As your executive, I will lead by example and set a
new standard of professionalism, cooperation and
respect. I will stand firm on my commitment to sound,
long-term financial planning and decision making based
on merit. My leadership will help us aggressively pursue
economic development opportunities through the framework of the Regional Business Plan. This approach
requires cooperation and I will work tirelessly to bridge
the divide between the city, towns and villages. We are
stronger when we work together and we can no longer
afford to fight amongst ourselves.
My leadership will help shine the light on county operations and dramatically improve communication with the
public. Whether it is at community events, public forums,
regular mobile office hours or the open door policy in my
office, I will be accessible and accountable to you.
In the race for county executive you have a clear
choice and I am confident that if we elect candidates
who are part of the solution, not part of the problem, we
can put ourselves on the path to a brighter future in
Montgomery County.
Thank you for your consideration. If you would like
more information about me visit mattossenfort.com or
feel free to call me at 620-1655.
MATT OSSENFORT,
Amsterdam
The writer is a candidate for Montgomery County executive.
A job that inspires my life
To the editor:
Speaking directly to the hiring committee of the 7th
Legislative District, the voters, please come out Nov. 5
and vote for Barbara S. Wheeler. Every vote counts.
Going door to door in this campaign brings back the
beginning of what brought me here today. While being
your supervisor has been a wonderful opportunity for so
many reasons, my passion and dedication to serve my
community has been fueled by my love of my first and
most important job —— being a mother. Four years ago,
even though few knew me, I worked hard and earned the
opportunity and the honor to represent the 4th Ward on the
Montgomery County Board of Supervisors. More than
anything, the past four years have taught me how crucial
communication is to the job of being a good representative of the people. Whether through my work as a supervisor, my involvement on boards such as the YMCA, or
other projects such as Neighborhood Watch, I have spent
the past four years listening and learning about my constituents and the issues that matter most to all of us.
I am proud to be on three lines on Nov. 5, including
Republican, Conservative and Independence. A main
theme across all three of these party lines is fiscal conservativeness, which is a huge part of my substance as
an elected official. Being a steward of the taxpayers’’
money is a job I take very seriously. Regardless of your
party affiliation, I am confident that I can serve you to
the best of my ability with optimism and determination.
These past four years have truly been an experience of a
lifetime, but at the same time I feel that it is a journey that I
am just beginning. I am embracing this journey for the
same reason I started which is for the betterment of the
community for those I serve —— I feel that I have so much
more to give to the community I love. My hope is for
young adults, such as myself, to live and thrive in our
hometown, where we can raise our children and where I
have committed my life’’s mission. Working together we
can create a quality of life we can be proud of for ourselves
and those that follow as did those that went before us.
I thank you for the opportunity to continue serving you
in the first Montgomery County Legislature. I am happy
to answer any questions or address any concerns you
may have. Please feel free to contact me at any time at
728-5567.
BARBARA S. WHEELER,
Amsterdam
Working hard for the town
To the editor:
I am Bill Holvig, the current town of Mohawk highway
superintendent, and running for re-election. I have
served the town for 17 years and during this time I have
earned certification for Road Master I and II from the
Cornell Local Roads Program, by attending classes
throughout the years. I have written many grants and the
town has received well over $300,000 in grant money
LETTERS POLICY
THE RECORDER does not carry letters without identification of the author. All submissions must include an
address and daytime telephone number to allow verification.
Please keep letters to about 300 words and of reasonable frequency. We reserve the right to edit submissions and to refuse their use for reasons that include
taste or libel.
You can e-mail your letter to [email protected]; fax it to 843-6580; or mail it to 1 Venner Road,
Amsterdam 12010. Any other questions regarding content or policy may be directed to the executive editor.
from EnCon, FEMA and other grant resources. I continue to research what grants are available for the town.
I urged the town board to establish a capital improvement fund to purchase equipment when needed. It saves
taxpayers money and keeps necessary equipment up to
date. The town also saved $100,000 on the purchase of
the Gradall and saved $16,000 on trucks purchased by
buying local instead of using the state contract.
I suggested to the town board to purchase the annex
building and improve the transfer site. Fortunately, in
2006 when we had the first flood, we had a building to
move and continue town operations.
Snow and ice control on town and county roads, mowing, maintaining and paving the road are just some of the
duties of the highway superintendent. Keeping the roads
safe for school buses, commuters and travelers, is a primary concern. Sand, salting and plowing are necessary
for keeping the roads safe.
In addition, I serve as vice president of the
Montgomery County Highway Superintendents
Association; as a team leader for Advocacy Day; I travel
to Albany to lobby for increasing the CHIPs funding
(and we received approximately $16,000 in additional
funding this year); I also serve as the emergency management contact for the town. I attend meetings and do
all the paperwork required to receive FEMA grant funds
for our roads and buildings.
Most important is that the highway taxes have gone
down. I take pride in serving as town of Mohawk highway superintendent. I will continue to work hard for the
town and make the smart necessary decisions that benefit the town residents. I am experienced, dependable and
responsible. On Nov. 5, Election Day, I would appreciate
your support.
WILLIAM ““BILL”” HOLVIG,
Fonda
Weathering the storm together
To the editor:
Election Day is only a few days away. Several months
ago 70 percent of you voted for a new form of county
government. I hope you will help me become the first
8th District legislator so I will then be in a position to
help you.
The work and lessons learned during my eight years as
1st Ward Amsterdam alderman and two terms as deputy
mayor will provide me with the experience and knowledge necessary to represent you on the county level. I
will work full time for 12 full months each year for you
as I do not leave the area whatsoever during the winters.
I weather the winters side by side with you, the people I
will represent.
I believe in cooperation to find the solutions necessary
for the major financial problems that face our city, towns
and villages. I have served on the Amsterdam AIDA
board and have spent my entire life helping others in any
way I was able to at the time.
As a communications professional, I will use my technical and professional knowledge to assist county personnel and departments however is needed.
Over the past 40-plus years I have strived to help our
community in a multitude of ways, I now ask for your
vote for 8th Legislative District of Montgomery County
so I may continue my life’’s work.
JOE ISABEL,
Amsterdam
My story and qualifications
To the editor:
Political letters seem to sound the same to me. Even
telling you I’’ll work hard, think through the issues, and
stay connected sounds like a sales pitch. The truth be
told, running for office is like a job interview: You tell
your life story and state your qualifications. But I don’’t
know of any way to do this other than by making my
best case to you. So, here it goes.
My name is Ken Mazur. I am an Amsterdam native, my
grandfather an Amsterdam fireman, and my grandmother
a founder of Liberty Enterprises. I have a bachelor of
science from Cornell University, and I am employed as a
health inspector with the New York State Department of
Health. I inspect health care facilities to ensure fire and
life safety and sanitation. I have years of experience in
code enforcement. Currently, I serve as a civil service
commissioner and on the Zoning Board of Appeals. I
formerly served on the County Ethics Board. During the
summer, I volunteer at the Auriesville Shrine.
I walked the entire 1st Ward and listened. I know you
want safe attractive neighborhoods, speed limits
enforced, roads repaired and clean, and the line held on
taxes. In preparation, I met with city department heads
on how to make these improvements. I will hold ward
meetings and keep myself available. I see Amsterdam as
a healthy and attractive city, ready for the 21st century,
by fixing the controller’’s office, rezoning for growth,
and common sense code enforcement.
At council meetings I will present a dignified public
image. I will use my own judgment, and cross party lines
when necessary. No automatic ““yes”” votes. I believe in
rational, responsible budgeting and following the city
charter.
I ask for your vote on Nov. 5. Thank You.
KEN MAZUR,
Amsterdam
Change for the town of Palatine
To the editor:
I spent the last few months running, walking and driving throughout the town of Palatine, talking to residents
about our collective future.
I met grandparents baking cookies with their grandkids;
a farming couple talking passionately about keeping a
small dairy going; a little girl who introduced me to her
mom working busily in the kitchen. I spoke with a
woman who worked 43 years at Beech-Nut and retired
making $14 an hour. One person told me we’’d never get
good jobs back here.
In many conversations, the sense of hopelessness was
difficult to hear. My future and the future of my family
is on our little farm in the town of Palatine. Our hearts
are here. Hopelessness is not an option. If possibilities
seem limited, we need to change the possibilities.
As a starting point, here is a set of issues and potential
solutions that I will take on:
1) Overwhelming school and property tax burden —— I
will practice vigilant fiscal responsibility in town budgeting, while advocating at the state level to change funding formulas and secure state and federal funding opportunities.
2) Concern about fairness in how rules are applied and
how town business is conducted —— I will work to
increase transparency, by increasing availability of documents on the town website and implementing regular
supervisor office hours for questions and concerns.
3) Interest in ironing out administrative procedures —— I
will work collaboratively with town officials, employees
and contractors to streamline and clarify procedures.
Many of you have already taken a leap of faith and
supported my campaign. I am both humbled and grateful. Already, we are changing the odds. I look forward to
working with residents of the town of Palatine to create
new possibilities and a better future for our town as the
next town supervisor.
SARA NICCOLI,
Palatine
Proven skill is needed most
To the editor:
Making an informed decision on Election Day is
important. While reviewing the recent literature by
Debra Baranello, a few points concerned me. The information provided by Baranello was very vague.
For example, she discusses increased code enforcement, but Baranello is a personal friend of Mayor Ann
Thane. After six years, Mayor Thane hasn’’t brought
about a large change in code enforcement. What can she
do that the mayor can’’t? Also, Baranello fails to provide
any clear plan as to how she’’ll bring about that change.
Next, Debra Baranello states that she’’ll work to have a
more visible and active police force. The statistics are
clear ... crime has decreased and the Amsterdam Police
Department is doing a great job.
Finally, Baranello states that she will strive to stay
within the tax cap. The tax cap is not an issue, because
it’’s already mandated. Debra Baranello fails to address
the most important part of tax increases in the form of
user fee increases.
Baranello’’s admirable volunteerism has worth. Even if
not elected as alderman, she can continue to contribute
to the community in that manner. Unfortunately,
Baranello’’s plan is ambiguous. Also, in my opinion, I
believe it was a bit presumptuous to refer to herself as
Alderman Baranello on the literature that she
distributed.
The finances in the city of Amsterdam cannot afford a
councilperson with a learning curve right now, no matter
how much volunteer work she takes part in and no matter how good her intentions are. Ron Barone has worked
on many government budgets while in office. I think this
proven skill is something Amsterdam needs considering
the financial climate of our city. We need someone with
proven capabilities who can make difficult decisions and
has been in that position before.
For these reasons, I will be supporting Ron Barone on
Nov. 5, and I invite my neighbors to do the same.

Stepping up to the plate
Check out the real facts
To the editor:
Here we are again at election time and campaign signs
are posted all over. But what do we really know about
the candidates or the offices they seek to hold? In some
cases we know those up for re-election, we know about
the candidates but not so much about the duties or
responsibilities of the office they hold.
Such is the race for town highway superintendent in the
town of Florida. Bill Weller has served for better than
two decades. When Bill took office he inherited an overmanned, ill-equipped and drastically dysfunctional
department. Over the years Bill has trimmed the labor
force, updated the equipment, and made the department
lean and trim.
Bill also stepped forward to take on the responsibility
of many other departments such as the parks and buildings, sanitation and sewer, and water. These are not part
of his elected position, but he stepped up to the plate and
took them on.
Through the years Bill has had to deal with complaints
about damaged mail boxes, tree branches, snow plowing
not to someone’’s satisfaction, and many others, but he
has handled them in a professional manner and with consideration of people’’s feelings. Bill is the one who is
held accountable for the department and anything that
goes wrong.
Bill has developed a good working relationship with
neighboring towns, county officials and neighboring
counties. Bill has a workable budget and even turned
back funds to the town. His terms in office and accomplishments will be remembered for quite some time.
When going to vote this year give consideration not
just to the party they represent or if you like a candidate,
but if they are the incumbent consider how they have
done their job in the past, and if that is what you would
like for the future.
TED SCHROM,
Amsterdam
To the editor:
Say what, Mr. Norris? I, too, live in the town of
Northampton. As your current supervisor, I work nonstop for all of the town voters and taxpayers. My job
(prescribed by the state of New York) requires that I represent Northampton not only at the local level but on the
county board of supervisors. It also requires that the
supervisor, at the local level, is the budget officer.
During my tenure I have elevated my county position
and will be chairman of the board in 2014. A newly
elected Northampton supervisor will not achieve such
appointment for at least another 15 years. (The last was
1995.) Key committee appointments at county level
impact decisions which affect all town residents.
The position of town supervisor, to which I was elected, along with a confidential secretary/bookkeeper position, were made full-time in 1990 by previous administrations. After 17 years of dedicated service, our bookkeeper/confidential secretary resigned, at the hands of
the town board and a small group of the opposition such
as yourself. This left me with the responsibilities of that
vacated position. An attempt to backfill that position
with another willing soul failed, as she also left in tears.
I have become the sole person to do payrolls, budget
and everyday matters that were formally performed by
the bookkeeper. The part-time person recently brought
on will also be leaving if I am not re-elected, due to your
and others’’ actions.
You and your candidates have bullied others and
manipulated the facts in recent mailings and personal
visits. I would ask the public to ask where all funding for
the ““promises”” being made will come from.
You, Mr. Norris, and the ““Unite Northampton Team””
have created turmoil, threats and disruptions daily in
your attempt to prevent the town clerk and myself from
performing our everyday duties. Anyone attending meetings or being at town hall can attest to that.
The council members alluded to in the Norris editorial
are put on committees to work on issues and present to
the board, performing their elected duties. I am only one
of five board members.
Voters, please check out the real facts and ask questions. I will continue to do my job until the voters tell
me otherwise. On Nov. 5, 2013, look for my name on
line 5 ““Wisest Choice.””
LINDA KEMPER,

The writer is Northampton supervisor and a candidate

The right one for the job
To the editor:
I am writing in support of Robert Purtell for county
legislator, District 9. The town of Amsterdam and the
fine folks in Cranesville and Hagaman need a good representative at the county, and I think he’’s the best person
for the job.
Bob is a lifelong resident and a business owner with a
strong record of service to our community. As a member
of the finance committee for Liberty ARC, he has experience working with a $60 million budget. And his many
years in real estate make him very familiar with an issue
weighing on all of us —— property taxes.
Robert Purtell is the right person for the job. He has the
experience and integrity to tackle the $100 million county budget and put Montgomery County back on the right
track. If you live in District 9 (Hagaman, Cranesville,
eastern parts of Amsterdam) I urge you to vote for him
on Nov. 5.

Improving the lives of others
To the editor:
Having been a close friend of Barbara Wheeler for over
25 years, I am fully aware of Barb’’s passion and dedication to improve the lives of those she serves. Until recent
years, I had little involvement with local politics. My
lack of enthusiasm toward politicians was due to my perception that many, if not most, politicians were dishonest
socialists aiming to seek attention and win votes through
crafty words and impressive ideas about how they would
work hard to fulfill promises to better the lives of those
in their community only to end up making poor excuses
for their failures. Yet, oddly enough often ending up with
more money in their pockets and less in ours.
Barb, on the other hand, has proven to me and to so
many others that there are truly honest politicians who
will work their hardest to fight for the community they
serve. Barb works diligently to keep money in the pockets of those she is so passionately striving to create a better life for in order that we might continue to have a
growing desire to live in our small city and raise our
children in a community they will be proud to build
memories in.
Thanks to Barb, my interest in local politics continues
to grow as Barb’’s actions line up with her words and has
revived my perception of a genuine public servant who
truly does strive to improve our community.
For a strong representative in Fonda and a fierce
Montgomery County lobbyist in Albany, I strongly
encourage you to vote for Barbara S. Wheeler on
Tuesday Nov 5.
Thank you for your time.

Northampton voters beware
To the editor:
As a former town board member that donated hundreds
of hours working on the town court renovations, town
hall lighting system, plus working on grant applications,
I feel it is time to get back on the Northampton town
board.
After being defeated two years ago, the ““good old
boys”” stated —— ““one down and two to go.”” When our
bookkeeper resigned that changed to ““two down and one
to go,”” meaning the supervisor. Recently, it was stated in
the town clerk’’s office that she will be the next to go.
Monies are being wasted left and right with this board,
$16,000 and counting on a mass gathering ordinance that
was put aside in court after our former attorney warned
us it would never stand up in court. The former attorney
was paid at $100 per hour while the new attorney
received $160 per hour.
At the Feb. 20, 2013, board meeting, Councilman
Ellsworth stated, ““If you raise taxes 50 percent, in reality
to the home owner it’’s almost no money and would
solve our problem.””
Your ““Unite Northampton Team”” has proposed a joint
highway department that could double our tax rate. The
town and village now already share equipment and services. The town last year raised $235,228 in taxes while
the village, with one-third of the population, raised
$454,227.45. How much more money will be added to
the budget if the ““good old boys”” get elected.
Will we hire a new bookkeeper to perform those duties
that the supervisor now does? Will we hire an office
manager? And how many more ““friends”” will be added?
It has also been stated that the town should pay for village police to help ““enforce”” town laws.
It is very important that this Nov. 5 you elect people
who will represent the best interests of the town and not
be represented by an all village town board. Please vote
for me on line 8H: ““The People’’s Party.””

Make Muni records public
To the editor:
As an Amsterdam Municipal Golf Course member, I
have followed the most recent ““debate”” with interest. I
attended a Common Council meeting where the subject
of renewing Joe Merendo’’s contract was listed on the
agenda. I would think, when being asked to vote on a
resolution concerning a contract renewal, someone might
have the wherewithal to actually bring a copy of the contract to the meeting. Incredibly, no one had a copy,
which makes it difficult to arrive at any type of an
informed decision.
At that meeting, after much ““discussion,”” it was stated
that the golf course was underperforming, and that the
golf commission has recommended a ““three-pronged
attack”” to alleviate the situation. Replace the pro, replace
the concessionaire, replace the maintenance department.
What has been sadly lacking is any explanation of exactly how this approach is going to increase the revenues of
the course. What I, and several other golfers that I have
spoken with, would like to know is what is this approach
based on? Are there studies that provide data showing
that this course of action has been proven to increase
revenue? If so, I would ask that these studies be published, or at least provide a link to a website where they
exist. It should be fairly easy to do, as I’’m sure that no
thinking person(s) would propose such sweeping
changes without viable data to back them up.
When addressing the performance of the golf course,
would it be asking too much for a financial report to be
published? One that shows how much the course takes
in, and where that money goes. As an entity that is
owned by the city, and one that involves hundreds of
thousands of dollars, shouldn’’t these records already
exist? Make them available to the public and end the
speculation of where the money goes. Is it true that the
city took $95,000 from the golf course to apply to a
bond payment, then, after deciding to not make the payment, did not return the $95,000 to the course? Is it true
that any time there is an event that requires the course to
be closed (generally from noon to 5 p.m.), a check for
$1,700 is written and sent directly to the mayor’’s office?
Keep in mind, these events are usually for charities to
benefit our community (not the mayor’’s office). There
are many such rumors/truths that exist; why not make
the finances of the course transparent and dispel/substantiate the rumors?
There is one more point I would like to discuss. If you
ask a golfer why he is going to travel out of town to play
a certain course, you will invariably get two reasons:
price and course conditions. No one ever mentions who
the pro is, no one ever mentions the concessionaire.
Surprisingly, those are two of the aforementioned ““threepronged attack.”” Enough said.

To the editor:
On Thursday, Oct. 10, the Amsterdam Rotary Club
sponsored a chicken parmesan dinner to benefit the Girl
Scouts of Northeastern New York, Community 202,
which covers the Amsterdam and Fonda-Fultonville
School districts. The community plans on using the
funds for camping equipment that they currently do not
have. This way more girls will have the opportunity to
experience the out-of-doors and all that it has to offer.
They also will purchase program materials such as
tables, canopies, chairs, Girl Guides and Journeys. The
materials will be available for troops to use at their individual meetings or at community events. This was our
eighth year sponsoring this event with many local individuals and charitable groups reaping the benefits.
Our motto of ““Service Above Self”” was displayed by
the numerous volunteers from our club who once again
gave of their time to work that evening. They also
showed their support by arranging for advertising, placing signage around town, welcoming guests, waitressing,
a little help in the kitchen, and most of all selling tickets.
We should also mention that the Girl Scouts were a lot
of help serving our guests.
We would be remiss without mentioning Rotary member Walt Porath and the Raindancer restaurant for another excellent performance. His managers, waitresses and
kitchen staff were once again on top of their game. There
were over 500 guests served in less than three hours and
we have heard nothing but rave reviews. For many years
now we have counted on the Raindancer for their support and generosity and each time Walt has been there
without mention. We owe him special thanks for all the
generosity.
Amsterdam Rotary has always been committed to the
community and will continue to do so. We meet for
lunch every Wednesday at (where else) the Raindancer
and constantly are recruiting new individuals and businesses that want to give back to our community. Please
feel free to stop by for a great lunch, good conversation,
and share some new ideas.

Indonesian forests still dwindle despite reforms
MATTHEW PENNINGTON
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON —— At home
and abroad, Indonesia is highlighting its progress in curbing
the environmental destruction
that has depleted forests and
made the Southeast Asian nation
a leading source of greenhouse
gases. But environmentalists are
unconvinced.
They say pulp and palm oil
plantations are still expanding at
an alarming rate in Sumatran
forests, despite efforts by the
government and industry. That
expansion has contributed to climate change and threatens endangered tigers and orangutans.
More than 80 percent of
Indonesia's emissions are due to
clearing of what is the world's
third-largest area of rainforest,
after Brazil and the Democratic
Republic of Congo. About half of
Indonesia's rainforest has already
been destroyed.
Greenpeace, which has conducted extensive research on
deforestation in Indonesia, says
government maps show the country lost 4,790 square miles
(12,400 square kilometers) of
forest between 2009 and 2011.
The main cause, accounting for
about a quarter of lost forest, was
for production of palm oil, which
is used as food and as biofuel.
Carbon-rich peatlands being
cleared for plantations must be
drained first. That releases vast
amounts of carbon dioxide into
the atmosphere.
President Susilo Bambang
Yudhoyono has committed to
cutting greenhouse emissions by

Indonesia is highlighting its progress in curbing the environmental destruction that has depleted
forests and made the Southeast Asian nation a leading source of greenhouse gases. But environmentalists are not convinced. The blazes in peat swamp forests on Indonesia’s Sumatra island have
sent massive plumes of smog across the sea to neighboring Singapore and Malaysia, both of which
have grown impatient with Indonesia’s response to the problem that occurs nearly every year.
26 percent by 2020. His government in 2011 declared a moratorium on new concessions in primary forest in a $1 billion deal
with Norway. The moratorium
was extended this May for two
years. Environmentalists say that
doesn't go far enough because it
doesn't cover existing concessions.
The U.S. government reported
in June that Indonesia's palm oil
industry has enough land that the
nation's authorities have said can

"It shows that the industry
wants to change, they want to do
the right thing, but sometimes we
have just got to help them,"
Djalal told the Stimson Center
think tank this week.
The amount of forest cover lost
annually has fallen: from an estimated 1 million hectares (about
2.5 million acres) between 1990
and 2010 —— equivalent to nearly
1 percent of the national total per
year —— down to 600,000 hectares
(about 1.5 million acres) per year
between 2009 and 2011.
Amy Moas, a U.S.-based forest
campaigner for Greenpeace,
acknowledged some progress but
said "there are dozens, perhaps
hundreds, of companies still
skirting lax laws and regulations
in Indonesia and finding the
cheapest and easiest way to do
business, which means horrible
environmental devastation."
Moas said government data
shows
that

using rainforest wood to supply
its mill in Riau province, which
has faced the most intense deforestation on Sumatra, a western
island famed for its biodiversity.
APRIL
spokesman
Mike
Zampa said Greenpeace was
exaggerating the amount of rainforest wood entering the mill. He
said 65 percent of the fiber used
is from plantation wood. He said
the company develops only about
half the land on its concessions in
Indonesia, and the rest goes to
conservation and community use.

FOOD
Getting great pork chops is all about the size
By ELIZABETH KARMEL
The Associated Press
Everyone loves the idea of a
grilled pork chop, but they often
fall short of expectations. And I
blame the butcher!
Many chops and steaks are cut so
thin it is almost impossible not to
overcook them, even for a seasoned griller like me. When chops
and steaks are cut thin, say 1/2
inch or less, the price is appealing
but the end result may not be to
your liking. It is far better to buy
one thicker steak or chop and split
it than buy two thinner cuts.
I have found that a boneless center-cut pork chop is the answer.
And it always exceeds expectations. You can buy the chops from
your butcher or cut them yourself
from a pork loin. Just make sure
that they are a generous 1-inch
thick.
The next secret is to brush the
chop all over with olive oil. My
motto: Oil the food, not the grill!
The olive oil not only helps prevent the meat from sticking to the
grates,
it
also
promotes
caramelization, which in turn
helps lock in the meat’’s juices. If
you don’’t brush the chop with oil,
the natural juices will evaporate as
the meat cooks.
A quick sprinkle of kosher or sea
salt and you are ready to grill. I
recommend a medium direct heat
and 5 to 6 minutes per side.
Finally, it is essential that you let
the pork chops rest at least 5 minutes so the juices will redistribute,
making your chop tender and
juicy. This means no cutting into
the chop —— even to test for doneness! Use an instant read meat
thermometer or learn visual clues
for doneness. It is much better to
serve a warm pork chop that has
had time to rest than a piping hot
chop that hasn’’t had time to rest
and loses all of its juices once you
cut it.
The Associated Press
This Sept. 30 photo shows pork chops with chipotle pumpkin seed butter in Concord, N.H.
Now that you’’ve mastered
grilling the chop, you are ready to
take your outdoor cooking repertoire to the next level by making a
compound butter. A compound
butter is simply softened (unsalted) butter that is flavored with
herbs, spices and almost any flavor
ingredient and seasoning. I love
compound butters so much that I
devoted a whole chapter to them in
one of my cookbooks.
Compound butters can be sweet
or savory and are a quick and easy
way to dress up any meal. The
beauty of a compound butter is
that when it melts on hot food, it
seasons the food like a complicated sauce, but without any of the
time needed to make one. Even
better, the flavors are much
brighter because they haven’’t been
cooked.
Since pork chops are synonymous with fall for me, I like to
serve a chipotle-pumpkin seed
butter on top of my chops. The
autumnal orange-red color of the
butter studded with green pumpkin
seeds smiles with Halloween colors, making this a perfect dinner
for all your ghosts and goblins.
The butter balances and rounds
out the smoke and the heat from
the chipotle chili and the adobo
sauce, and the toasted green pumpkin seeds add texture and eye
appeal to the butter. I use fleur de
sel or Maldon sea salt in all of my
butters to add a nice little crunch to
the butter and the finished dish.
The butter can be made up to a
week in advance and refrigerated
or frozen until ready to use. I like
to refrigerate the butter until it is
hard, slice it into medallions and
freeze them in an airtight container. That way, I have ““coins”” of
compound butter any time I need
them. The butter also is really
great on grilled or baked squash,
almost any vegetable, and any fish,
poultry or meat, so I usually double the recipe.
PORK CHOPS
WITH CHIPOTLE-PUMPKIN
SEED BUTTER
Start to finish: 1 hour
Servings: 4
For the chipotle-pumpkin seed
butter:
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 small chipotle chili in adobo
sauce, drained and chopped finely
1 tablespoon lightly toasted and
cooled hulled pumpkin seeds
(often called pepitas)
1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder
1/2 teaspoon Maldon salt flakes
or fleur de sel
For the pork chops:
4 boneless center-cut pork chops,
1-inch thick
Olive oil
Kosher salt and ground black
pepper
To make the butter, in a medium
bowl mash or stir the butter until it
is smooth and slightly fluffy. Add
the chipotle, pumpkin seeds, chili
powder and salt. Mix together,
mashing with the back of a fork to
make sure all the ingredients are
incorporated. Taste, then adjust
with additional salt, if needed.
Set a 6-by-12-inch sheet of
kitchen parchment or plastic
wrap on the counter. Spoon the
butter onto it to form a log. Roll
the butter up, then smooth out to
form a round log about 5 inches
long. Refrigerate until firm and
easy to cut into rounds, about 15
minutes. The butter can be made
in advance and stored, tightly
covered, in the refrigerator for up
to a week (or in the freezer for up
to 3 months).
When ready to prepare the pork
chops, prepare the grill for direct,
medium heat cooking.
Remove the butter from the
refrigerator and cut four 1/2-inch
slices off of the log (you will have
some butter left over) and set aside.
Meanwhile, use paper towels to
pat the pork chops dry. Brush with
a thin coat of olive oil, then season
with salt and pepper.
Place the chops directly on the
cooking grate and grill for 5 to 6
minutes per side. The chops will
be done when they feel ““firm”” to
the touch and register 140 F at the
center. Remove the chops from the
grill and top immediately with a
piece of the butter.
Let the chops rest for 5 minutes
before serving and allow the butter
to melt over the top as it rests. If
desired, serve with a second round
of butter.

This photo taken in August, provided by L & R Resources, shows Eileen Benner’s Atlantic City home in the process of being elevated
after it suffered severe flood damage during Superstorm Sandy. Roderick Scott of L&R Resources in Mandeville, La., says he recommends that homes be lifted 1 or 2 feet above the minimum needed to get a flood elevation certificate.
Raise the house, lower the flood risk
By CAROLE FELDMAN
The Associated Press
Eileen Benner says elevating
her home in Atlantic City, N.J.,
was a ““no-brainer”” after it suffered extensive flood damage
during Superstorm Sandy. ““I
would tell anybody who has the
money available to go ahead
and do it,”” she says.
John Paynter’’s Long Beach
Island, N.J., vacation home
now stands 13 feet higher than
it did before the storm a year
ago. He, too, says he’’s glad he
did it, though the process itself
was nerve-wracking: ““You
heard a lot of cracks and
creaks.””
Nationwide, insurance claims
for flooding damage totaled on
average more than $3 billion
annually from 2003 to 2012,
according to the National Flood
Insurance Program (NFIP). And
rising sea levels and more
severe storms mean that in
some areas, more homeowners
are finding themselves in flood
zones for the first time or in
higher-risk ones.
The most common way to
reduce the risk: elevating the
home, the NFIP says.
The process can cost a lot ——
more than $100,000 in many
cases, depending on the home’’s
size, location and foundation.
But homeowners may be eligible to get some help from flood
insurance policies and grants.
Flood elevation maps determine whether a property needs
to be raised and by how much.
Homeowners in high risk zones
who choose not to raise their
homes could see their flood
insurance premiums skyrocket.
Roderick Scott of L&R
Resources, a Mandeville, La.,
company that does home elevations, recommends lifting a
house 1 or 2 feet above the
minimum needed to get a flood
elevation certificate.
““You don’’t want to elevate
structures more than once in
their lifetime,”” he says.
Homes with an open foundation —— with a basement or
crawl space —— are the easiest
and least expensive to raise.
““It’’s easy to get underneath and
get the structure of the house
from underneath and lift it up,””
he says.
Raising those built on a slab
foundation takes more time and
money. ““You have to open up
walls and remove lower cabinets,”” Scott says.
Any air conditioning and
heating systems in the base-

ment must be relocated, as well
as power and other utilities.
““They have to go on or above
the main level of the structure
so they won’’t be damaged,””
Scott says.
And then there’’s the question
of how you’’ll get up to the
higher house. Where will you
put the stairs, for example?
““A lot of seniors live at the
beach. They may need to integrate a lift,”” says Scott.
He uses a hydraulic machine
to jack up a house, and says the
process is so smooth that he
once put a glass of red wine on
a tabletop. ““Not a drop was
spilled,”” he says. Still, he
advises people to take pictures
off the walls and pack up any
valuable crystal.
A house may be set down on
pilings or cinderblocks,
depending on the height.
It’’s likely that millions of
homes will have to be raised
based on redrawn flood maps
nationwide, Scott says.
However, Dan Watson, a
spokesman for the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency, says it’’s difficult to
say how many and where: ““In
some cases the risk has gone
down and in some cases it has
gone up.””

In 2012, Louisiana had the
most flood damage claims, followed by New Jersey and New
York.
In Brick Township, N.J.,
Mayor Stephen C. Acropolis
says about 8,500 homes suffered water damage during
Sandy, and that more than half
of those will have to be raised
because of redrawn maps. He
says many people got temporary certificates of occupancy
that give them four years to
elevate.
His own home, he says, is ““a
51 percenter —— that means
your house was damaged to
more than 50 percent of the
value of your home. And so is
my son’’s and a lot of people in
my neighborhood.””
He’’s not rushing into elevating his home, though. ““We’’re
going to get prices, we’’re going
to deal with engineers,”” he
says. ““I don’’t see a ton of people elevating their homes right
away unless they had the
money.””
Benner felt she didn’’t have a
choice. The water in her duplex
after Sandy was a foot deep. It
cost $21,000 to lift the house,
she says, and she expects the
total bill to be $130,000 to
$140,000. Part of that was offset by a clause in her flood
insurance policy that gave her
$30,000 to meet the new height
requirements.
““By the time I’’m done, my
base floor is going to be about
12 feet”” higher than it used to
be, she says. ““I feel comfortable.””
After Paynter’’s house was
lifted, ““I had to build stairs. I
had to build a front porch. I had
to reattach the utilities,”” he
says. He also built a new chimney and redid the house’’s
flood-damaged interior.
Total cost? He estimates
$140,000.
He moved back in in August.
““I’’m very happy,”” he says.
WASHINGTON —— In some
ways, computers make ideal drivers: They don’’t drink and then
climb behind the wheel. They
don’’t do drugs, get distracted, fall
asleep, run red lights or tailgate.
And their reaction times are
quicker.
They do such a good job, in fact,
that a new study says self-driving
cars and trucks hold the potential
to transform driving by eliminating the majority of traffic deaths,
significantly reducing congestion
and providing tens of billions of
dollars in economic benefits.
But significant hurdles to widespread use of self-driving cars
remain, the most important of
which is likely to be cost. Added
sensors, software, engineering and
power and computing requirements currently tally over
$100,000 per vehicle, clearly
unaffordable for most people, the
study said. But large-scale production ““promises greater affordability over time,”” it concluded.
Questions also remain about
public acceptance, liability in
event of an accident, and the ability of automakers to prevent car
computers from being hacked.
Nevertheless, the advantages of
self-driving cars are such that if
only 10 percent of cars and trucks
on the road were self-driving, they
could reduce traffic deaths by
1,000 per year and produce nearly
$38 billion in economic and other
savings, said the study by the Eno
Center for Transportation, a foundation dedicated to improving
transportation.
If 90 percent of vehicles were
self-driving, as many as 21,700
lives per year could be saved, and
economic and other benefits could
reach a staggering $447 billion,
said the study, a copy of which
was provided to The Associated
Press.
““There will be many steps
before we get to that, but it does
feel like there is a whole new
world that completely changes
everything in terms of our perspective on driving that could
emerge eventually,”” said Joshua
Schank, Eno’’s president and CEO.
For example, the passenger
compartment may be transformed
as former drivers safely work on
laptops, eat meals, read books,
watch movies and call friends.
And cars that can be programmed
to pick up people, drive them to
their destination and then park by
themselves may change the lives
of the elderly and disabled by providing critical mobility.
Once a critical mass of self-driving cars is on the road, they can
start ““platooning”” —— driving
closely together but keeping a
steady distance between each
other without the fuel-burning,
time-wasting, stop-and-go typical
of traffic congestion. That could
smooth traffic flows, reduce commute times and increase highway
capacity.
Government research indicates
driver error is likely the main reason behind over 90 percent of all
crashes. Over 40 percent of fatal
traffic crashes involve alcohol,
distraction, drugs or fatigue. But
self-driven vehicles wouldn’’t fall
prey to such human failings, suggesting the potential for at least a
40 percent reduction in fatal
crashes, the study said.

Divorcee desires fancy proposal
DEAR ABBY: I am a
divorcee in my 40s who
is in a committed relationship with a man
who is also divorced.
Neither of our marriages were happy ones.
We stayed in them for
all the wrong reasons.
We have been together
By
for three years, live
together, love each other
ABIGAIL
unconditionally and
VAN BUREN
have talked extensively
about getting married.
My question is, am I wrong to expect a
traditional proposal with an engagement
ring? It is important to me that he would
think enough of me to plan one. I feel if
he did it for his first wife, he should do
the same —— or more —— for me. Would it
be in bad taste to mention this? —— ASKING TOO MUCH? IN PENNSYLVANIA
DEAR ASKING TOO MUCH?: Unless
one of your companion’’s attributes is clairvoyance, express your feelings. He may not
be aware that you would feel somehow
cheated if he doesn’’t come forth with a gesture that is ““equal or better”” than what his ex
received. Consider carefully what resulted
from that first fancy proposal.
An essential ingredient in a successful relationship is the ability to express one’’s wants
and needs to the other partner. I would only
suggest that when you do, your thoughts are
couched as a request and not a demand.
DEAR ABBY: Enlighten me, please. A
friend told me her daughter is expecting.
She has not said one word about a
boyfriend or marriage. How do I diplomatically ask, ““Who is the father?””
People in my generation already knew
the answer. Marriage came first. Is this
now ““none of my business””? The grandma-to-be has offered no clue. Can you
help me out? —— OUT OF THE LOOP
OUT WEST
DEAR ABBY
DEAR OUT OF THE LOOP: If
Grandma-to-be is keeping mum, you can bet
there’’s a reason. If the father was Prince
Harry, she would be trumpeting it from the
rooftops. Your friend may not know who the
father is or have some other reason for not
disclosing it. Unless you want to tiptoe
through a minefield, my advice is DON’’T
GO THERE.
DEAR ABBY: I’’m a 13-year-old girl
who suffers from what I’’m afraid is
obsessive-compulsive disorder. I have
known for four years, but I never told my
parents. I finally opened up to them a few
days ago, and I thought they wanted to
help. But later I heard them mock my
condition and laugh about it.
Abby, I thought my parents wanted to
help me, but it’’s becoming clear that they
don’’t. They have offered me therapy, but
I’’m scared they will mock me for that,
too. Now I’’m afraid to go. Should I? ——
O.C.D. DAUGHTER
DEAR DAUGHTER: When people don’’t
understand something, unfortunately they
sometimes laugh at it. However, are you
absolutely certain that what your parents
were laughing about concerned you and not
something else? I find it hard to believe that
loving parents would laugh at their child’’s
discomfort.
You should by all means take them up on
their offer of talking to a therapist. It is the
surest way to find a solution for your problem. And when you do, tell the therapist you
think you heard your parents laugh about
your problem, because if it’’s true and they
are not aware of how serious the problem
may be, the therapist can explain it to them.
Dear Abby is written by ABIGAIL VAN
BUREN, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and

King Features Syndicate
For Friday, Oct. 25, 2013
ARIES
(March 21 to April 19)
This is a wonderful day to entertain
at home. Invite family over for good
food and drink. You might feel sympathetic to someone in particular.
TAURUS
(April 20 to May 20)
Your optimism and positive attitude
attract others to you today. In fact,
you might encourage someone (in a
group) to approach a situation with
greater sympathy and understanding.
GEMINI
(May 21 to June 20)
You feel rich today and might be
throwing money around. Business
and commerce are favored in the
morning — less so in the afternoon.
Ka-ching.
CANCER
(June 21 to July 22)
You feel warmhearted and generous to others today. In fact, if you can
do anything to alleviate the suffering
of others, you will. You also want to
have fun.
LEO
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
Because you feel selfless today,
you’re willing to put the wants and
needs of others before your own.
You’re not being a martyr. Quite the
opposite; helping others will reward
you with a sense of satisfaction.
VIRGO
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
Group activities will be friendly and
enthusiastic today. Accept invitations
to join others in sports, physical activities or meetings in general. You’ll be
glad you did.
LIBRA
(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
You make a great impression on
people in authority today — bosses,
parents, teachers, VIPs and the
police. They see you as affable, successful and pleasant. (You might turn
this to your advantage.)
SCORPIO
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
You will love to travel today,
because you want to broaden your
horizons. You’re up for adventure and
are enthusiastic to learn something
new. You’ll be sympathetic to people
from a different culture.
SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
Keep your pockets open, because
gifts, goodies and favors from others
might come your way today. This
morning is a good time to ask for a
loan or mortgage.
CAPRICORN
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Enjoy warm relations with others
today. People are in a great mood
and want to have a good time. Work
with others today, because they will
help you.
AQUARIUS
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Work-related travel is likely today.
Be careful you don’t overspend
money or misjudge an important
financial decision, especially this
afternoon.
PISCES
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
This is a romantic, playful day. Love
at first sight could spring up out of
nowhere for some of you. Enjoy
social outings and fun times with others.
YOU BORN TODAY You are physical, earthy and solid in how you relate
to your world. Others depend on you.
You want your surroundings to be
organized the way you want them to
be. That is because you need a reliable
resource to give shape to your ideas.
This year, a major change might take
place, perhaps something as significant
as what happened around 2004.

In this May 21 photo, director James Toback, left, actor Alec Baldwin, right, and Baldwin’s wife
Hilaria Thomas pose for photographers during a photo call for the film “Seduced and Abandoned”
at the 66th international film festival, in Cannes, southern France. “Seduced and Abandoned” airs
Monday on HBO.
Alec Baldwin talks about
‘fetid septic tank’ business
By JAKE COYLE
The Associated Press
NEW YORK —— In ““Seduced
and Abandoned,”” Alec Baldwin
and James Toback present a
portrait of today’’s movie business and an elegy to what it
once was. In person, Baldwin’’s
even more candid, venting on
tasteless studio executives, the
pay for actors and the ““fetid
septic tank”” of the movie business.
Baldwin and Toback knocked
around the Cannes Film
Festival last year, documenting
the humbling process of
Hollywood deal-making and
trying to get financing for a
film. Baldwin, whose movie
career has largely taken a back
seat to TV (he has followed his
Emmy-winning run on ““30
Rock”” with his recently
launched MSNBC talk show,
““Up Late With Alec Baldwin””),
calls making the film —— a blitz
of celebrity interviews and
yacht visits along the French
Riviera —— ““one of the best
times of my life.””
Currently playing in select
theaters before airing Monday
on HBO, the film is timely,
coming amid a year of much
debate about the state of
moviemaking. In an interview,
Baldwin had plenty to say on
the subject.
AP: Though you have several films in the works, you’’ve
suggested before that you may
be done with the movies. Are
you?
Baldwin: You wind up not
having any faith in it, in terms
of having a career at it.
Everyone wants you to turn to a
speech that Lucas and Spielberg
gave —— two very, very seasoned people in the business
who talk about the business
model of studio movies collapsing. What I want to say is: The
business model in terms of
actors making a living at it is
collapsing because you can’’t
get paid to make a movie.
Everybody does TV because
you’’re not out there having to
kill yourself to get an audience
the way you do in the movie
business. People I work with,
they want you to become their
partner in raising money. They
want you to become their partner in collapsing their fees.
They want you to become their
partner, now, in selling the
movie. They want you on a
plane going to festivals and
you’’re on the phone with
reporters all the time. The
amount of work outside the
shooting of the film has become
absolutely unconscionable. ...
All the fun of it is gone. You
talk it to death.
AP: ““Seduced and
Abandoned”” comes at a time
of great handwringing over
the future of cinema.
Baldwin: It was tough financially. Then it was very tough
financially. Then it was unbearable financially. And now it’’s
unbearable financially and creatively. For the most part. There
are exceptions. ““12 Years a
Slave.”” There are movies that
come along that are wonderful
films. The movie ““Gravity”” is a
box-office success. ““Captain
Phillips”” is a good movie. There
are good movies that come along.
It just seems that the opportunity
to make a good movie, if you do
get to make one, takes an extraordinary amount of luck or an
extraordinary amount of fortitude.
AP: ““Blue Jasmine,”” the
Woody Allen film in which
you co-starred, was excellent.
Baldwin: But Woody’’s in his
own universe. When what
you’’re starting off with is ““written by Woody Allen,”” you have
a leg up on everyone else.
AP: What needs to change?
Baldwin: The principle reason
movies fall apart is that you
don’’t have a good director. The
most anemic guild in all of the
business is the Directors Guild.
There are thousands of good
actors out there waiting for a
job. There are so many unproduced scripts that are good. The
real dilemma in the business
today: There are not enough
good directors. There’’s an
ocean of mediocre directors.
AP: Did you learn anything
new about the film business
making ““Seduced and
Abandoned””?
Baldwin: You see in the business this fetid septic tank filled
with all these people, and then
you turn around and there’’s
Bertolucci, there’’s Scorsese.
They don’’t let that get in their
way. They have their stresses.
They have their own challenges.
It is not a boulevard of green
lights for these people, at all.
They’’ve got their compromises.
... The people who are the heads
of production of all the studios,
across the board, they don’’t
know anything about films.
Nothing. They know things
about selling films.
AP: Are you optimistic
about anything then?
Baldwin: I say to myself:
Thank god for (““12 Years a
Slave”” director) Steve
McQueen. Right as you’’re
about to collapse from a kind of
cinematic starvation and dehydration, along comes McQueen.
Along comes Alexander Payne.
Along comes Wes Anderson.
Along comes (Paul Thomas)

CBS show draws awareness to breakup violence
By DAVID BAUDER
The Associated Press
NEW YORK —— The CBS magazine
““48 Hours”” is using the story of a
Massachusetts teenager killed by her
ex-boyfriend to draw attention to the
issue of violence after young people
end romantic relationships.
The show airs Saturday at 10 p.m.
Eastern. Susan Zirinsky, senior executive producer of the newsmagazine,
said Wednesday she felt the 2011 murder of Lauren Dunne Astley of
Wayland, Mass., by Nathaniel Fujita
could have value beyond the typical
crime tale.
““This isn’’t just a story for us,”” she
said. ““We feel like we can have a real
impact.””
CBS plans to give the issue attention
on radio and its online properties, and
Zirinsky said the show will likely be
made available to educators who want
to show it in schools.
In the program, correspondent Tracy
Smith hopes to give viewers information about signs in a relationship that
could point to future trouble.
One piece of advice that sadly could
have helped Astley: Don’’t visit an ex
alone after a breakup.
Some experts said they’’ve been startled over the past few years —— as
Smith was during her report —— about
the number of teenagers who say
they’’ve seen abusive relationships.
Casey Corcoran, of the Boston organization Futures Without Violence, said
the group had a waiting list in the hundreds when it sponsored a summit for
teenagers on breakups.
Zirinsky is convinced that social
media makes life tougher for teens.
When lives are fully documented on
sites like Facebook, it increases the

News shows Lauren Astley and

broadcast of “48 HOURS: ‘Loved to
Death‚’ to be broadcast Saturday on
the CBS Television Network.
shame and hurt when relationships end,
she said.
Astley broke up with Fujita, a star
receiver for the school football team in
suburban Boston, after a three-year
relationship.
He was having trouble dealing with
the breakup, and his mother asked
Lauren to talk to him.
Astley’’s old friends tell of troubling
signs in the relationship and aftermath,
including one incident where he angrily
punched a tent post at a party and
almost brought it down.
Astley’’s father, Malcolm, a retired
school principal, has sought to make
dating violence protection a part of
school curriculums.
He said he made the difficult decision
to cooperate with CBS in telling his
daughter’’s story because he was convinced it would be handled well.
““People are fascinated by horror,”” he
said. ““We wanted to make sure it was
factual and understanding, and not just
about the horror.””

By MICHAEL MCCALL
The Associated Press
Willie Nelson’’s ““To All The
Girls .,”” an album of duets with
female partners, is custom-made
for the download age.
Few fans will connect with all 16
songs —— the set is too eclectic and
too inconsistent for that.
But plenty of gold nuggets shine
through for those willing to pick
through the miscues and throwaways.
The second album of original
material released this year by
Nelson, and his fifth new album in
three years, the ever-productive
80-year-old keeps pouring out new
music, even when a little self-editing might make the individual
packages stronger.
The gems on ““To All The Girls .””
include a stunning multi-lingual
duet with Alison Krauss on ““No
Mas Amor”” (written by Keith
Gattis and Sammy Barrett) and
covers of Merle Haggard’’s
““Somewhere Between,”” in an
emotion-packed version with
Loretta Lynn, and a swinging ““Till
The End Of The World”” with
The Associated Press

Shelby Lynne.
On the other hand, Dolly
Parton’’s self-written contribution,
““From Here To The Moon And
Back,”” suffers from over-sentimentality. A cover of the country
chestnut, ““Making Believe,””
drags due to a lifeless reading by
Nelson —— a point driven home by
how much more feeling duet partner Brandi Carlile brings to her
part.

Cumberbatch’s ‘Sherlock’ back with ‘Downton’
LOS ANGELES (AP) ——
““Sherlock”” starring Benedict
Cumberbatch will return to public TV in January, keeping company on Sunday nights with the
““Downton Abbey”” crowd.
Season three of the modern
Sherlock Holmes mystery series
will began Jan. 19, PBS said
Wednesday. It was previously
announced that the fourth season
of ““Downton”” will begin Jan 5.
The scheduling reflects PBS’’
new strategy of pairing dramas
on Sunday, part of a broader
effort to build ““flow within a
given night in our schedule,””
said Beth Hoppe, PBS’’ chief programming executive.
Prime-time viewership on
Sunday, home to primarily
British dramas, grew 26 percent
last season with the new
approach, Hoppe said, and
““Sherlock”” and ““Downton
Abbey”” were seen as good partners.
Overall, PBS’’ prime-time ratings were up 7 percent last season compared to the year before,
Hoppe said.
““Downton Abbey,”” the hit
drama about the lives and loves
of landed gentry and their servants, will be preceded by a Dec.
1 special, ““Return to Downton
Abbey.”” Hosted by Susan
Sarandon, it will offer a look at
past seasons and a peek at the
one ahead.
As in the past, the drama’’s new
season already is in progress on
Britain’’s ITV. PBS has resisted
timing the U.S. to the U.K. airings, saying the January debut
works better for its schedule —— a
move that’’s allowed spoilers to
cross the Atlantic.
But PBS relented with BBC’’s
““Sherlock,”” which is scheduled
closer to its yet-to-be announced
British airing, Hoppe said.
Other returning U.K. dramas
include ““Call the Midwife”” and
““Mr. Selfridge”” starring Jeremy
Piven, both debuting Sunday,
March 30, and ““The Bletchley
Circle”” on April 13.
The
busy
Benedict
Cumberbatch, whose current
movies include ““The Fifth
Estate”” and ““12 Years a Slave,””
is part of another PBS program,
““Hawking,”” a Jan. 29 documentary about British physicist
Stephen Hawking as told by him.
Cumberbatch, who played
Hawking in a 2004 TV movie, is
a friend of the scientist and
appears in the film, Hoppe said.
A lineup of science and nature
programming for April includes

Sony hopes clips,
extras aid buying

Big Freedia brings the bounce
NEW YORK (AP) —— New Orleans hip-hop artist
Big Freedia is twerking his way to TV screens.
The openly gay rapper, a representative of the
city’’s vibrant underground music scene, debuted
his weekly Fuse show, ““Big Freedia: Queen of
Bounce,”” earlier this month. He’’s helped bring
bounce music —— the energetic brand of hip-hop
born in New Orleans that’’s conducive to the midsection, hip-shaking dance move known as twerking —— to the masses.
““It’’s been around for two decades. It’’s the culture
there, it’’s history there,”” he said of the dance.
Last month, Big Freedia earned a Guinness
World Records title for most people twerking
simultaneously with more than 250 people in New
York’’s Herald Square.
The performer said his new series, which airs
Wednesdays, will reveal more layers of his personality.
““They get to see me on a more personal level.
They get to see some of the struggles that I go
through day-to-day,”” he said.
Big Freedia, who has opened for the Postal
Service’’s tour this year, discussed his music, Miley
Cyrus’’ twerking and homophobia in hip-hop in an
interview with The Associated Press.
AP: I’’ve been hearing that twerking is dead.
Do you agree?
Big Freedia: Twerking is definitely not dead.
I’’ve been twerking for the last three years, converting one twerker at a time all around the world.
AP: Miley Cyrus twerked at the MTV Video
Music Awards, among other places. What’’s
your take on her twerking?
Big Freedia: She really didn’’t twerk, you know.
She attempted to twerk, but she didn’’t really twerk
properly and so people were confused and little
baffled about the dance moves that she did do.
AP: What is proper twerk technique?
Big Freedia: Definitely practice in the mirror
before you attempt it. You have to use your body
in the upright position, you can use your knees for
support and that’’s the only way you can twerk.
AP: How accepted do you feel in the rap community?
Big Freedia: I feel very accepted, like I never
have any slander. I never have any issues. You
know, like, when people see me, they respect me.
It’’s all about how you carry yourself.
AP: Are you ever offended by homophobic
lyrics?
Big Freedia: Not at all. I know who I am, I stand
firm on who I am. Those artists are going to vent
out and say what they feel and as long as it’’s not,
you know, directed to say one person, that’’s fine.
It’’s lyrics. It’’s gonna be around for a long time.
AP: When are you going to release new
music?
Big Freedia: I have an EP coming out ...I also
have an album coming out ... And I’’m about ready
to go on my fall tour for five weeks, travelling all
around the world and spreading the goodness of
bounce music.
LOS ANGELES —— Sony is
hoping that providing sharable
movie clips and extras like
deleted scenes will prompt
more people to buy digital
movies. At least that’’s the
intention behind a new initiative it’’s calling Vudu Extras+.
The initiative gives people
who buy movies on Wal-Mart
Stores Inc.’’s online video service Vudu the ability to share
dozens of clips or pieces of
behind-the-scenes footage on
Facebook and Twitter. In each
case, a link takes users to a
website with the clip embedded.
For its first movie under the
system, ““District 9,”” Sony
makes available 17 movie
clips, five deleted scenes and
five snippets of a ““filmmaker’’s
log”” available for sharing.
Some of the shared content is
reserved for others who also
buy the movie for at least
$9.99. A search feature also
allows movie buyers to jump to
certain scenes after searching
keywords in dialogue.
The innovation comes at a
time when U.S. home entertainment spending is recovering
from falling DVD sales. While
standard-definition DVD sales
continue to drop, high-definition Blu-ray disc sales are
increasingly taking up the
slack.
When adding digital forms of
revenue, including from
streaming services like Netflix,
U.S. spending on home movies
in the first half of the year rose
2 percent to $8.6 billion,
according to The Digital
Entertainment Group, a consortium made up of Hollywood
studios and consumer electronics manufacturers.
Of that, revenue from the purchase of digital movies was
still a relatively small $491
million, although that’’s up 50
percent from a year ago.
James Underwood, an executive vice president of strategy
for Sony Pictures Home
Entertainment, said the studio
has long seen that making
extras available is ““one of the
motivating factors for purchasing a film.””
““We think that will transfer
into the digital space as well,””
he said.
Sony says that 61 percent of
active disc buyers are aware of
extras before purchasing, and
40 percent of active Blu-ray
disc buyers usually watch
them.
Sony hopes the extras system
can be adopted by other studios
and other retailers, like
Amazon.com Inc. and Apple
Inc. That would mean studios
can create extras once and have
them available in multiple
places. Now, studios tailor different extras in different formats for different retailers.
Amazon, for example, makes
trivia and actor bios available
using its IMDb movie database
subsidiary with no extra input
from the studios. Apple
includes iTunes Extras for computers, such as the ability to
track characters on a digital
map of Middle Earth for purchasers of movies from the
““The Lord of the Rings”” trilogy.
At least one other studio ——
20th Century Fox —— says it’’s
interested in participating in the
new format for Vudu.
““Setting a standard for it and
having more and more service
providers take that standard is
the way to go,”” said Mike
Dunn, president of 20th
Century Fox Home
Entertainment Worldwide.
““Right now, every service
provider is slightly different.
You have to build one for this
guy and another one for that
guy. It’’s just not cost effective.””

Buccaneers are better than people think
Record against the spread ––
Week 7: 9-6, Season total: 49
wins, 54 losses, 4 ties
My first winning week, 9-6,
I’’ll take it. It was much needed
after being

PetSmart last
Saturday
(““Dude, I
hope you’’re
not betting
your picks
because if
you are, you

from my

The same Otto who gave me the
Dolphins as a lock two weeks
ago when they were on their bye
week. I’’m five under .500, but
far from broke! `
The Jets beat the Patriots in
overtime, aided by a controversial penalty, to move to within a
game of the Patriots in the AFC
East. After the game Jets coach
Rex Ryan said, ““It’’s about time
we caught a break,”” and I couldn’’t agree more. The penalty
overshadowed another solid Jets
defensive effort as they stifled
Tom Brady again. In two games
against the Jets this season,
Brady was 41-85 for 413 yards,
just one touchdown and an interception which was returned for a
touchdown. If the Jets can win
one of their next two games,
against Cincinnati and New
Orleans, I think they’’ll contend
for a wild card spot in the AFC.
The Giants got their first win
of the year in an almost
unwatchable Monday night
game against the Vikings.
Peyton Hillis outrushed Adrian
Peterson in that game, go figure.
It’’s obvious the Giants need to
look towards 2014 and trade
Hakeem Nicks before the
October 29th trade deadline.
Despite dropping their first
game of the season, the Broncos
remain the Super Bowl favorites
at 7-2. Rounding out the top five
are the Seahawks at 5-1, Saints
at 7-1, 49ers at 8-1 and Patriots
and Packers who are both 12-1.
The only undefeated team, the
Chiefs, aren’’t getting much
respect at 15-1. The Jets are 1251 and surprisingly the Giants are
““only”” 150-1.
There are 13 games this week
as there are six teams on a bye
(Chicago, Tennessee,
Indianapolis, San Diego,
Baltimore and Houston).
I’’ll be back on Saturday with
the rest of the games.
Tampa Bay (+6 1/2) vs.
Carolina
The 3-3 Panthers visit the winless 0-6 Buccaneers tonight.
Carolina is 3-3 against the
spread and the Buccaneers are 15.
After losing their first two
games, the Panthers have won
three of their last four. Those
three wins though came against
the Giants, Vikings and Rams,
who have a combined record of
5-15. Two of Carolina’’s losses
came on the road against Buffalo
and Arizona, who are both 3-4,
and in my opinion not much better than Tampa Bay. The
Panthers do have a very good
defense which is allowing just
302 yards and 14 points per
game. Quarterback Cam Newton
has put together solid back to
back games, completing 81 percent of his passes with four
touchdowns and no interceptions.
In my opinion Tampa Bay isn’’t
as awful as their winless record
indicates. They should’’ve beat a
decent Jets team on the road in
week one and lost to a very good
Saints team on a last second
field goal in Week 2. They were
competitive in all of their other
games except for a 23-3 loss at
New England in Week 3.
Unfortunately the Bucs lost
starting running back Doug
Martin (torn labrum) indefinitely
last weekend. His replacement is
rookie Mike James. The Bucs
have a decent defense, but are
struggling mightily on offense,

I think the Buccaneers will lay
it on the line here to try to get
their first win in this nationally
televised game. They play at
Seattle next week so they have
to know they’’re staring at a 0-8
start if they lose here. I’’m not
sure they can get a win but I
think they’’ll keep it close and
cover in what should be a low
scoring game. I wish it was a
touchdown but I’’ll take the
Buccaneers with the six points.

WORLD SERIES NOTEBOOK

St. Louis Cardinals’ Carlos Beltran leaps to catch a long fly
ball hit by Boston Red Sox’s David Ortiz during the second
inning of Game 1 Wednesday. Beltran was injured and his
ability to play tonight was not known this morning.
Lester, Ross a winning
combo for the Red Sox
By HOWARD ULMAN
The Associated Press
BOSTON — Jon Lester
has put together an outstanding postseason with
David Ross on the receiving
end. Boston’s light-hitting
backup catcher has been
Game 2
behind the plate for Lester’s
St. Louis at Boston
last three outings, and the
WXXA-23
left-hander has allowed just
7:30 p.m.
three earned runs in 19 1-3
innings.
“Me and him (have) kind of fallen into a little bit of a pattern, a
little bit of a routine together, and it’s worked,” Lester said after
pitching 7 2-3 shutout innings in Boston’s 8-1 win over the St.
Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday
night. “And we’ll just keep riding it out until the end.”
Lester was 1-2 in his first three games with Ross this season. Since then, they are 5-1. The only loss came in Game 1
of the AL championship series, a 1-0 win by Detroit in which
the Tigers allowed just one hit, coming with one out in the
ninth inning. Jarrod Saltalamacchia caught Lester’s first postseason game, a 12-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.
Count on the Lester-Ross combination to make another
appearance in Game 5, if there is one.
ALL WRONG FOR WAINWRIGHT: Nothing went right for
Adam Wainwright early in the World Series opener.
The Boston Red Sox refused to chase his swooping curveball, took advantage when the right-hander let a popup fall in
front of the mound for a hit in the second inning and went on
to beat the Cardinals 8-1 on Wednesday night.
Wainwright started the second by getting Stephen Drew to
hit a high pop in front of the mound, and he raised his hands
as if signaling that he would catch it. Instead, Wainwright let
the ball drop between him and catcher Yadier Molina, a fellow Gold Glove winner, for a single that started a two-run
inning that opened a 5-0 lead.
“Tonight was a clear case of our starting pitching, being me,
going out there and setting the wrong tone. That second inning
completely (changes) if I catch the ball,” Wainwright said.
MANAGING HOTBED: Boston’s John Farrell is one of five
members of the 1988 Cleveland Indians who went on to
become major league managers.
He was teammates with Bud Black, Terry Francona and
Ron Washington. And Charlie Manuel was the hitting coach.
“Must have been something in Lake Erie,” Farrell said
before Wednesday night’s World Series opener against the
St. Louis Cardinals.
CHAMPIONSHIP SUPPORT: The Boston Red Sox are trying to match the New England Patriots’ haul of three championships in this century.
And quarterback Tom Brady has a bold prediction:
“Red Sox in five,” he said Wednesday. “We’ll give (the
Cardinals) one.”
In his 14 years with the Patriots, Brady has developed a
strong allegiance to his baseball brethren.
So have some of his teammates.
“That’s our team,” Brady said at his weekly news conference. “I’ve been here awhile so I’ve got to see a lot of Red
Sox games over the years and watched them win a few
championships. You know, you don’t take these for granted
because you don’t know if they will ever come again.”
MARIANO MOMENT: Mariano Rivera will receive the
Commissioner’s Historic Achievement Award before Game 2
of the World Series tonight.
The New York Yankees closer, who retired after the regular
season, will be recognized on the field during pregame ceremonies. The award last was presented in 2011 to Ken Griffey
Jr. It recognizes achievements and contributions of historical
significance.
World Series
The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y.
from page 32
It got so bad for St. Louis that
the sellout crowd literally
laughed when pitcher Adam
Wainwright and catcher Yadier
Molina, who’’ve combined to win
six Gold Gloves, let an easy
popup drop untouched between
them.
Serious-minded St. Louis manager Mike Matheny didn’’t find
anything funny, especially when
the umpires changed a call by
Dana DeMuth at second base.
““Basically, the explanation is
that’’s not a play I’’ve ever seen
before. And I’’m pretty sure there
were six umpires on the field that
had never seen that play before,
either,”” Matheny said.
““It’’s a pretty tough time to
debut that overruled call in the
World Series. Now, I get that
they’’re trying to get the right call,
I get that. Tough one to swallow,””
he said.
DeMuth said he never actually
saw Kozma drop the ball.
““My vision was on the foot.
And when I was coming up, all I
could see was a hand coming out
and the ball on the ground. All
right? So I was assuming,””
DeMuth told a pool reporter.
There was no dispute, however,
that the umpires properly ruled
Kozma had not caught a soft toss
from second baseman Matt
Carpenter on a potential forceout.
That’’s what crew chief John
Hirschbeck told Matheny.
““I just explained to him ... that
five of us were 100 percent sure,””
Hirschbeck said. ““Our job is to
get the play right. And that’’s what
we did.””
““I said, ‘‘I know you are not
happy with it, that it went against
you, but you have to understand
that the play is correct,””’’ he said.
The normally slick-fielding
Cardinals looked sloppy at every
turn. Wainwright bounced a pickoff throw, Molina let a pitch
trickle off his mitt, center fielder
Shane Robinson bobbled the
carom on Napoli’’s double and
there was a wild pitch.
The Cardinal Way? More like,
no way.
““We had a wakeup call. That is
not the kind of team that we’’ve
been all season,”” Matheny said.
““And they’’re frustrated. I’’m sure
embarrassed to a point.””
Game 2 is Thursday night, with
22-year-old rookie sensation
Michael Wacha starting for St.
Louis against John Lackey.
Wacha is 3-0 with a 0.43 ERA
this postseason.
Beltran is day to day after Xrays were negative.
Lester blanked the Cardinals on
five hits over 7 2-3 innings and
struck out eight for his third win
this postseason.
““We wanted to set the tone and
get them swinging,”” he said.
Ryan Dempster gave up Matt
Holliday’’s leadoff home run in
the ninth.
Boston brought the beards and
made it a most hairy night for St.
Louis. The Cardinals wrecked
themselves with just their second
three-error game of the season.
The umpires made a mistake,
too, but at least they got to fix it
in a hurry.
After the control-conscious
Wainwright walked leadoff man
Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia
singled him to second with one
out.
Ortiz then hit a slow grounder
to Carpenter, and it didn’’t appear
the Cardinals could turn a double
play. Hurrying, Kozma let the
backhanded flip glance off his
glove.
DeMuth

Pedroia out, indicating that

trying to transfer it to his throwing hand. Farrell quickly popped
out of the dugout to argue while
Pedroia went to the bench.
Farrell argued with every
umpire he could and must’’ve
made a persuasive case. As the
fans hollered louder and louder
as they studied TV replays, all
the umpires gathered on the dirt
near shortstop and conferred and
decided there was no catch at all.
““You rarely see that, especially
on a stage like this,”” Napoli said.
““But I think that was good for the
game.””
Pedroia came bounding from
the dugout and suddenly, the
bases were loaded in the first.
Napoli unloaded them with a
double that rolled to the Green
Monster in left-center.
Napoli, with maybe the bushiest
beard of all, certainly picked up
where he left off the last time he
saw the Cardinals in October. In
the 2011 Series, he hit .350 with
two home runs and 10 RBIs as
Texas lost in seven games to St.
Louis.
The Red Sox added to their 3-0
lead with two more runs in the
second. A fielding error by
Kozma set up Pedroia’’s RBI single.
The whole inning got going
when Stephen Drew’’s popup in
front of the mound landed at
Wainwright’’s feet, a step or two
from Molina. The ace pitcher and
the star catcher both hung their
heads.
““I called it. I waited for someone else to take charge. That’’s
not the way to play baseball. It
was
totally
my
error,””
Wainwright said.
Ortiz, who hit a tying grand
slam at Fenway in the AL championship series win over Detroit,
sent a long drive to right-center.
Beltran, playing in his first World
Series, braced himself with one
hand on the low wall in front of
the bullpen and reached over
with his glove to make the catch.
““At least I got an RBI and we
were up four and got the momentum,”” Ortiz said.
Beltran hurt himself on the play
and left in the third inning.
Ortiz homered in the seventh
and the Red Sox got another run
in the eighth on a sacrifice fly by
21-year-old rookie Xander
Bogaerts.
The Red Sox almost made a terrific play to finish the game. With
two outs in the ninth, Freese hit a
sharp single and right fielder
Shane Victorino nearly threw
him out at first base.
NOTES: Lester has pitched 13
1-3 scoreless innings in two
Series starts. He closed out a
2007 sweep over Colorado. ...
The Red Sox won their fifth
straight World Series opener
since losing Game 1 to St. Louis
in 1967. ... Red Sox Hall of
Famer Carl Yastrzemski threw
out the first ball. ... The team that
won the Series opener has taken
the title in 14 of the past 16 years.

Lady Braves win easily in
sectional volleyball opener
By MICHAEL KELLY
[email protected]
The Associated Press
NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver, far left, speaks
with reporters as NBA Commissioner David Stern, right,
leaves after a press conference at the NBA board of governors meeting, Wednesday, in New York. Stern will formally
step aside on Feb. 1, 2014, after 30 years and Silver will
become the new league commissioner.
As Stern preps
exit, NBA Finals
format changed
NEW YORK (AP) —— David
Stern’’s NBA owners gathered
one last time, toasting the outgoing commissioner before he
leaves after 30 years on the
job.
They also changed back one
of the earliest changes Stern
made.
Leaving with Stern is the
NBA Finals format he implemented in his first full year on
the job, one that alleviated
travel concerns but critics felt
also gave an advantage to the
lower-seeded team.
Beginning with the 2014
finals, the higher-seeded team
will host Games 1, 2, 5 and 7.
The lower seed gets Games 3,
4 and 6, following the same
format the NBA uses in all
other rounds.
The NBA for the previous
29 years has used what’’s
referred to as the 2-3-2 format, in which the higher seed
hosts the first two games, then
goes on the road for three
straight.
The 2-3-2 format was instituted in 1985 in part to ease
the amount of cross-country
travel with the Celtics and
Lakers frequently meeting for
the championship. But some
felt it also worked against the
team that should have the
advantage.
““There certainly was a perception ... it was unfair to the
team that had the better record,
that it was then playing the pivotal Game 5 on the road. So
this obviously moves that game
back to giving home-court
advantage to the team with the
better record if it’’s a 2-2
series,”” Deputy Commissioner
Adam Silver said.
The unanimous vote to
approve the 2-2-1-1-1 format
came Wednesday during
Stern’’s final preseason meeting with his board of governors. Owners also voted to
add an extra day between
Games 6 and 7.
The league’’s competition
committee had recommended
the change last month back to
2-2-1-1-1, which was used in
all but one finals from 1957 to
1984.
Stern has often said he was
acting on advice —— or complaints —— about the travel
from former Celtics boss Red
Auerbach when the finals for-
mat was switched. But with
commercial flights long since
replaced by charters, teams
didn’’t have the same difficulties now with the number of
trips.
Instead, the ones who had
the higher seed found it more
inconvenient, Stern said, to be
on the road for as many as
eight days in a row when the
opponent hosted the middle
three games.
Silver, who will become
commissioner after Stern
retires Feb. 1, is a proponent
of the 2-2-1-1-1 format,
though he said Stern and other
league executives all thought
it was time for the change.
““It reached a crescendo
where basketball people
thought it was important and
the business people stood
down and said it was no
longer necessary for the convenience of transportation or
the media,”” Silver said.
Beyond the re-election of
Spurs owner Peter Holt as
chairman, there was little
other business for the owners,
who toasted Stern during dinner Tuesday night. Stern said
there was a video tribute
voiced by Bill Russell, Magic
Johnson, Michael Jordan,
Larry Bird, Tim Duncan,
Kobe Bryant and LeBron
James, along with ““some
speechifying”” and ““a series of
totally embarrassing photos of
me over the last 36 years.””
““I got the opportunity to
thank my colleagues at the
NBA for their incredible work
and saying how pleased I was
that the league was in such
good hands under those colleagues and Adam’’s stewardship,”” Stern said.
The owners were also presented with a Stern bobblehead
doll. The commissioner said
Cleveland Cavaliers owner
Dan Gilbert joked that unlike
most bobbleheads whose heads
nod up and down, Stern’’s only
moves side to side as if shaking
its head no.
““It’’s been a great opportunity,”” Stern said. ““Believe it or
not, even including my interaction with the media and the
burns that come from being a
lightning rod, it’’s been a great
run, and I’’m grateful to the
owners for giving me the
opportunity.””
FONDA —— Minutes after winning their first-round matchup
against Hoosic Valley in the
Section II Class C volleyball
playoffs, the Fonda-Fultonville
Lady Braves were ready to face
second-seeded Voorheesville, a
club that has beaten F-F twice
this season.
““The third time’’s the charm,””
said Lady Braves senior Gianna
Mancini. ““I think we can do it.””
Wednesday, F-F made things
look pretty easy. Playing against
No. 10 Hoosic Valley, No. 7 F-F
pushed to a three-set victory: 2513, 25-19, 25-22.
In the match, the Lady Braves
received solid play from much of
its roster. Gianna Cruz, Mancini,
Miranda Nethaway and Abby
Oliver were forces at the net,
while Cory Lais, Kerrigan
McCaslin and company provided
steady all-around play.
““My girls have been working
harder on really covering each
other and making everybody contribute something,”” said F-F head
coach Pat Mancini. ““Tonight,
every single one of them did that.””
F-F breezed to the first-set victory. With McCaslin serving first
for the Lady Braves, F-F scored
the first six points of the match.
““That’’s why I always have
Kerrigan serve first,”” said Mancini.
““She very rarely misses a serve.””
Football,
Michael Kelly/Recorder staff
Fonda-Fultonville volleyball’s Gianna Cruz, left, and Abby Oliver
celebrate after Cruz had a kill on Wednesday.
The second set, though, was a
different story for the Lady
Braves. After 18 points, F-F
trailed, 12-6. Mancini blamed the
poor start on F-F’’s season-long
penchant for rough second games
—— especially at home.
““It’’s a mental block with these
girls,”” she said. ““Somehow, we
have to get over that.””
““It’’s always that side of the
court. It’’s bad luck for us,”” said
Lais. ““We had to sit down and tell
ourselves that we had to play like
we know how to play.””
F-F did just that. After scoring a
point to take control of the ball,
McCaslin held serve for eight
more points before Hoosic Valley
broke the run. Momentum stayed
with F-F, though, as the Lady
Braves rattled off the next four
points.
““We had to refocus,”” said
Gianna Mancini. ““One we did
that, it was in our favor.””
Mancini finished with three kills,
two blocks and two blocks.
McCaslin had 20 service points ——
six came in the form of aces —— and
14 assists, while Nethaway had
nine kills and Lais had 10 aces.
The Lady Braves sprinted
through most of the third set, suffering a slight hiccup at the end.
Up 22-16, F-F had to fend off a
late charge from Hoosic Valley to
hold on for the win.
Now, head coach Pat Mancini’’s
team heads to Voorheesville with
a chance to advance to the semifinals. While the Blackbirds bested F-F last week in straight sets,
the coach said her Lady Braves
were ready to head fearlessly into
the match.
““We’’ve got nothing to lose,””
she said.

The program
AS: All four of our local teams
are in the playoffs this year ——
two open at home, two on the
road. Which program do you
think is facing the most pressure
to perform this postseason?
MK: I really think you could
make a case for each of our
teams, though Canajoharie is
probably the closest —— in my
eyes —— to a team that deserves
to ““just be happy to be here.”” If
I have to pick one, I’’d select BP. The Patriots have a lot of program momentum right now, but
still need to take the next step
after last year’’s first-round exit.
I don’’t think the situation for BP is Super Bowl or bust, but it is
semifinals or bust.
AS: I’’d agree that B-P feels the
need to take the step forward,
but I think Amsterdam has the
most pressure to validate its season with a playoff run. The
Rams went 0-3 against their
three toughest opponents during
the regular season —— Troy,
Queensbury and Burnt Hills ——
and without a win against Averill
Park Friday night and at least a
strong showing in a likely
rematch with Queensbury in the
semifinals, there’’s going to be a
lot of disappointment going
around the Rugged Rams family.
MK: That’’s true. Even with a
win Friday and a loss next week,
things are going to sting in
Amsterdam. It is tough to look
back at a season and feel positive about it when you lose all of
your ““big”” games. At the same
time, though, the Rugged Rams
are the club that will be playing
with house money if it figures
out a way to make it to the Class
A Super Bowl.
AS: Absolutely. Two wins and
most of the pressure all of a sudden comes off ——though I doubt
the Rams would just be happy to
be there if staring down Burnt
Hills or Troy in the Super Bowl.
The game
MK: Ignore the brackets and
early-round matchups. If you
could make one game happen in
these playoffs, what’’s the pick?
AS: It wouldn’’t happen until
the Class D Super Bowl, but I’’d
love to see a CanajoharieGreenwich matchup. These were
the two teams locked out of the
playoffs last year because the
Class D field was limited to just
four teams, and it’’d be a chance
to see Greenwich running back
John Barnes —— the leading rusher and scorer in all of Section II
during the regular season —— go
up against the Cougars’’ terrific
defensive front.
MK: For me, this comes down
to two choices —— one for football
reasons, the other for non-football
reasons. The latter one is obvious
—— Amsterdam vs. Burnt HillsBallston Lake —— because of all
the drama that will surround that
game if it happens.
The game for football reasons
is the one that I saw this year
that deserves to be run back: B-P
vs. Schalmont. In some respects,
the Patriots gave that game away
—— and they knew it.
AS: I’’d give the same reasoning for a game that’’s likely to
happen next week between
Burnt Hills and Troy, a rematch
of a four-overtime BH-BL win
from Week 2 where Troy failed
to take advantage of 10 (!) Burnt
Hills fumbles.
MK: First off, solid use of
parentheses. Second off, I’’ll go
out of area —— and back to Class
D —— for a CambridgeRensselaer rematch from Week
6. Cambridge won that game
going away, but Rensselaer
played the final three quarters
without its starting quarterback.
The Super Bowl picks
AS: Simple one to finish it off.
We’’ve got five classifications in
Section II, so two weeks from
now, what are we looking at
with our five Super bowl
matchups?
MK: In Class AA, I am going
for a CBA-Saratoga Springs
matchup; in Class A, I see Troy
meeting Queensbury; in Class B,
I think we get the rematch of BP and Schalmont from Week 4;
in Class C, I went back and forth
on this, but I reluctantly —— cowardly? —— have to predict another
Chatham-Hoosick Falls final;
and, in Class D, Greenwich will
take on Cambridge.
AS: I’’m on pretty much the
same page as you. I’’m with on
on CBA-Saratoga Springs in
Class AA, but I’’m going to go
out on a different —— somewhat
homerish —— limb and say that
Amsterdam finds its way back to
the Class A Super Bowl to take
on Troy. Beyond that, I see the
same three matchups in Class B,
C and D that you’’ve got.
MK: I could see the Rams
making that a realistic choice.
Amsterdam has the potential to
be the type of team that could
really give Queensbury problems with its explosive offense.
For me, the team that could be
the real party crasher, though, is
Scotia-Glenville; the Tartans are
the No. 3 seed out of Class B’’s
West Division and could give
top-ranked Schalmont fits in the
semifinals.
AS: Just don’’t come looking for
us when these predictions are in
shambles come Saturday night.

B-P knows Walker will
present a big challenge
By MICHAEL KELLY
[email protected]
BROADALBIN
——
Lansingburgh’’s Anthony Walker
is coming to town to visit
Broadalbin-Perth. One way or
another, the matchup between the
electric senior running back and
the Patriots’’ top-notch defense
figures to decide Friday night’’s
Section II Class B playoff game
at Patriot Field.
““He’’s the x-factor,”” says B-P
head coach Jim Pelneau. ““If he
gets it going, he can put a team
on his back.””
That’’s the mature, coach-speak
way of saying Walker is very
good. For the less-polished,
more-to-the-point explanation of
what Walker’’s presence means,
here is B-P senior lineman Pierre
LaPort’’s take on the running
back’’s skill.
““If you don’’t tackle Walker
well, he’’ll run for 400 yards on
you and single-handedly beat
you,”” LaPort says.
If Walker were to run for 400
yards this week, that would be a
season-high for the senior —— but
not by much. Just last week,
Walker rushed 37 times for 370
yards and four touchdowns. He
also returned an interception 97
yards for a score in his team’’s door-die 42-35 victory against
Albany Academy. On the season,
Walker has scored 21 touchdowns.
““He’’s as good as it gets,”” says
Pelneau, whose whole team has
More Broadalbin-Perth football
players earn all-league honors
In an article in
Wednesday’s edition of
The Recorder highlighting
the members of the
Broadalbin-Perth football
team that had been named
to the Section II Class B
West Division’s all-league
teams, three Patriots were
left out.
Junior Biagio Bucciferro
scored 25 touchdowns this season.
During the regular season,
though, B-P’’s defense performed as arguably the top unit
in its classification. In allowing
11.4 points per game, the
Patriots only allowed one 100yard rusher —— Glens Falls’’
Quentin Austin gained 112
yards in Week 5 against B-P ——
this season.
Pelneau says his team takes
confidence from its past performances, but also that his club realizes Walker presents a challenge
unlike what the Patriots have
seen this season. That truth
makes preparing for Walker extra
difficult.
““There’’s no one that can simulate his talent and his speed,””
says Pelneau. ““So, what we’’ve
had to focus on in practice is
making proper reads and getting
to our spots.””
““Basically,”” adds junior line-
was a first-team selection
as a linebacker; junior
Jake Coveney was a firstteam selection as a defensive back; and, senior Phil
Hemstreet was a first-team
selection as a defensive
end.
In all, 12 B-P players
received league honors.
— Michael Kelly
backer/defensive back Tyler
Schmidt, ““what we’’ve been
preaching is rallying up like we
have all year with multiple
guys.””
That is also another facet to
the Patriots’’ strategy this week:
Gang-tackling to make sure
Walker cannot break tackles.
““If you think he’’s down, he’’s
not,”” says Schmidt. ““Just keep
hitting him until he is.””
Lansingburgh is so Walkerdependent for offense that it is
all but a given that B-P walks
away from Friday night with a
victory if it slows the senior
down —— and anything worse
than a couple hundred yards
and multiple touchdowns for
Walker will be a defensive victory for B-P.

Mike Visco says his team knows
the stakes.

Patriots brush aside
‘favorite’ status in
sectional opener
By MICHAEL KELLY
[email protected]
BROADALBIN —— Heading
into Friday night’’s playoff
game, the Broadalbin-Perth
Patriots find themselves in a
unique position.
After a season of using the
chip on their collective shoulder to drive themselves to a 61 record in the regular season,
the second-seeded Patriots
enter their Section II Class B
quarterfinal matchup as the
favorite against the third-seeded Lansingburgh Knights.
““We really haven’’t had that
(status) here in a long time,””
says defensive lineman Phil
Hemstreet, whose first-team
all-league selection made him
one of seven Patriots honored
on the defensive side of the ball.
““But we’’re going to not treat
it any different,”” says
Hemstreet. ““We’’re going to go
out there and do our thing.””
That’’s the company line coming from head coach Jim
Pelneau’’s group. The idea that
the Patriots have earned anything as the No. 2 team from the
West Division is not a popular
one for B-P in advance of playing host to the Reinfurt
Division’’s No. 3 team at 7 p.m.
““If we play like we have a
chip on our shoulder like we
have all year, we should be
OK,”” says junior Tyler
Schmidt. ““We’’re still going to
treat it like we’’re an underdog.””
It’’s easier that way for the
Patriots.
““We’’re used to being the
underdog,”” junior Biagio
Bucciferro says.
Despite B-P’’s three-game
winning streak, Lansingburgh
might enter with more
momentum. Needing a win in
Week 7 to qualify for the playoffs, the Knights picked up a
dramatic 42-35 victory against
Albany Academy, as senior
running back Anthony Walker
rushed 37 times for 370 yards.
““I think we’’re starting to
jell,”” says Knights first-year
head coach Jeff Pasinella. ““I
hope that we’’re hitting a good
streak at the right time.””
B-P knows it has to contain
Walker to win Friday night,
but Pasinella says his team
needs more than a superlative
performance from one player
to emerge with the road victory. But, for a team that rarely
passes the ball, that means the
Knights need a second strong
rushing performance.
““We have to get a solid game
out of our fullback, Josh
Rodriguez,”” says Pasinella.
““He’’s been solid all year. A lot
of his yards go unnoticed, but
he gets tough yards and leads
the way for Anthony a lot.””
Another key aspect to
Friday’’s affair: The battle
between the B-P defensive front
and the Knights’’ offensive line.
Pasinella says his team needs to
win at the line of scrimmage to
have a chance to beat B-P,
despite the area being one of
strength for the Patriots.
““They’’ve got some big boys
up front and they can move,””
says Pasinella. ““We’’ve got our
hands full.””
Bucciferro says his club is
confident it can slow down the
Knights’’ run game. The foursome of defensive linemen
Hemstreet, Pierre LaPort, Zach
Newfrock and Andre Taylor has
been strong all season —— and
Bucciferro sees that group leading the Patriots to a victory.
““Our defensive line is the
best in Class B,”” says
Bucciferro, who was named
this week a first-team allleague linebacker in the West
Division. ““They make the linebackers shine.””
While the marquee matchup
takes place between the B-P
defenders and the Walker-led
offense, the Patriots’’ offense
has a chance to be the contest’’s
breakout star. Junior quarterback Zach Morreale is coming
off consecutive great games ——
in Weeks 6 and 7, he went a
combined 21-of-28 passing for
295 yards and three touchdowns —— and the B-P offense
seems to be peaking at the
right moment.
““Our offense has started
clicking,”” says Schmidt, a running back for the B-P offense
which has averaged 31 points
per game during the team’’s
winning streak.
Of course, success on offense
is also imperative to helping
the Patriots’’ defense on what
promises to be a pressurepacked night for it.
““If we can chew up the clock
and keep getting first downs
with our offense, we can limit
[Walker’’s] touches that way,
too,”” Pelneau says.
That underdog way of thinking works perfectly for the
Patriots. After the program’’s
best regular season in several
years, the presence of a visiting star like Walker helps B-P
keep its edge.
““This group still does have a
bit of a chip on its shoulder
this week —— and that’’s OK
with me,”” Pelneau says.

Rugged Rams are
focused on stopping
Averill Park’s option

Familiar opponents
Amsterdam, Averill Park squads are no
strangers to each other on the gridiron
By ADAM SHINDER
[email protected]
The Amsterdam Rugged
Rams and Averill Park Warriors
have certainly grown mighty
familiar with each other these
past two football seasons.
In 2012, the two teams
opened the season against each
other in Amsterdam with
Averill Park pulling out a 30-24
win, then met again in the first
round of the Section II Class A
playoffs when the Rugged
Rams hit back with a 58-14
rout.
This year, the teams once
again met in Week 1 —— this
time with Amsterdam coming
out on top in a 56-44 shootout.
Now, the playoffs are set to
start Friday night, and guess
what?
It’’s another meeting between
the Rugged Rams and
Warriors.
““Last year, we lost the first
game and came back to beat
them in the playoffs, which
was nice,”” Amsterdam head
coach Doug Edick said ahead
of Friday’’s 7 p.m. game at
Averill Park High School.
““This year is a different year.
They’’re a very good team ——
they put 44 points on us —— so
I’’ve been telling them we’’ve
got to strap it on defensively.””
And with the Rams having
put up 114 points over the last
two games in the series, Averill
Park head coach Zach Gobel
said his team is itching for a
chance to turn things in their
favor.
““There’’s no doubt about it,””
Gobel said. ““It’’ll be the fourth
time we’’ve played in the last
two years. We got the first one,
they got the last two and we’’re
definitely excited for another
rematch.””
In the first matchup between
the two teams this season,
Amsterdam and Averill Park
combined to put up numbers
that might have fit better in a
video game —— 100 total points
and nearly 1,100 combined
yards of total offense.
Both teams have had their
struggles on defense throughout the season —— Amsterdam’’s
allowed four teams to score 40
or more points against them,
while Averill Park surrendered
96 points in losses to Troy and
Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake in
the final two weeks of the regular season —— but Gobel said
his team is hoping to rise to the
occasion now that the playoffs
are here.
““Obviously, I think both
teams need to look at their
defenses and how we need to
improve our defenses,”” Gobel
said. ““Even with our last two
games against Burnt Hills and
Troy, I think our defense has
improved steadily all season,
and we’’re ready to get it tested
again.””
Meanwhile, Amsterdam senior captain Hector Diaz said
that, even though the Rams did
come out on top in their Week 1
clash with the Warriors, the
coaching staff has in no way
allowed the team to rest on its
laurels heading into the
rematch.
““The coaches are really
stressing that even though we
won that game against them the
first time, technically, it was a
loss because we gave up 44
points,”” Diaz said. ““The coaches definitely are pushing us to
make sure that doesn’’t happen
again.
We’’re
stressing
defense.””
The Rams may be focused on
tightening up their defense, but
that doesn’’t mean they’’ve spent
any less time fine-tuning an
offense that put up 258 points
during the regular season and
cracked the 50-point barrier on
three separate occasions ——
including in Week 1 against
Averill Park.
In the opener, offensive coordinator
Tim
Holloway’’s
scheme clicked behind 245
passing yards and six total
touchdowns —— four passing,
two rushing —— from quarterback Julian Gallup. But that,
senior captain Gabe Mendez
said, was using just a fraction
of the team’’s playbook.
““We’’re starting to unleash
almost everything we have,””
Mendez said. ““They’’re gonna
see a lot of stuff that hopefully
will confuse them or throw
them a little off-guard and not
really know what to do with.””
““Coach Holloway’’s always
trying to think out of the box
and put in something that other
team’’s haven’’t really seen,””
Diaz added.
A year ago, the Rams walked
into their playoff opener
against Averill Park with a 4-3
record and used their 58-14 triumph as a springboard to a second straight Class A Super
Bowl appearance. This year,
hitting the postseason at 4-3
once again, senior linebacker
Devin Rosario said the Rugged
Rams are looking to bottle the
same magic for the second season in a row.
““This is a new season for us,””
Rosario said. ““We’’re trying to
go into this with our heads held
high and get the win.””
After
the
trouble
the
Amsterdam Rugged Rams had
defending Averill Park’’s triple
option in the Week 1 shootout
between the teams, the Rams are
eager to prove they can shut
down the Warriors’’ multi-faceted
running game.
Though Amsterdam pulled out
a fireworks-laden 56-44 win in
the season opener, Averill Park
racked up 558 yards of total
offense —— 372 of them coming
on the ground, and 189 of them
courtesy of 230-pound fullback
Garrett Ryan. With the teams set
to meet in Averill Park in the first
round of the Section II Class A
playoffs Friday night, the mission around Amsterdam’’s practices this week has been simple:
Stop the option.
““The first game, we had a rough
time with their fullback and that
triple
option
they
run,””
Amsterdam senior linebacker
Hector Diaz said. ““It was real
good, and we weren’’t prepared
for it. Our tackling wasn’’t really
good. Now, we’’ve had experience under our belt. I think it’’s
gonna be a lot different this
time.””
In practice this week, the Rams
have tailored their defensive
schemes —— particularly the
alignment of their defensive
tackles in the team’’s base 4-4
defense —— to try and alleviate
some of the problems they had up
front in the Week 1 game.
And, in an effort to simulate the
rough-and-tumble running of
Ryan, Amsterdam has leaned on
5-foot-9, 250-pound senior C.J.
Mercado —— normally a lineman,
though he has carried the ball late
in each of Amsterdam’’s last two
games —— to take significant reps
as the scout team fullback.
““That gives us a good look.
He’’s got the same body type, and
he’’s running pretty good at fullback,”” senior linebacker Devin
Rosario said.
Recorder file photo

But, as much as the Rams might
try to give their starting defense
as close a look as possible, head
coach Doug Edick said it simply
won’’t compare to facing an
Averill Park offense that’’s wellschooled in the flexbone option.
““You can’’t simulate it, but you
try to,”” Edick said. ““The speed of
the game is a lot faster than it is
in practice.””
Edick is plenty familiar with the
triple option, as the Springfield
College football team ran it during his playing days there.
““If you run it good, it’’s tough to
stop,”” he said. ““You’’ve got to
stop the fullback, quarterback
and the option —— and they can
throw off it.””
Beyond any change in scheme
or technique, senior defensive
back Gabe Mendez said, comes
one simple improvement the
Rams need to make from Week 1
to Friday night.
““We’’ve just got to tackle,””
Mendez said. ““Coach said it all
week, we’’ve got to bring our
cojones from a defensive standpoint.””

Justin Marek scored twice and
the Patriots played nearly flawless, possession-oriented soccer
in the first half of Wednesday’’s
4-0 triumph, but following the
game, Henry was more concerned with B-P’’s disjointed
play in the second half.
““I thought we played extremely well in the first half, our level
of play just tailed off a lot in the
second half,”” Henry said. ““We
got too direct with the ball,
instead of knocking it around
the way we can, and we gave
Chatham some legitimate
opportunities in the second half
which I would consider to be
unforced errors on our part ——
mental errors. When you’’re
doing that in sectionals, it’’s the
difference between going home
and moving on.””
In the first half, the Patriots’’
(14-3) crisp passing game was
working to full effect with midfield anchors Scott Everson and
Connor Monks pulling the
strings. That duo had a direct
impact on all three of B-P’’s firsthalf goals, including the opener
4:41 into the game when Monks
waited at the back post to head an
Everson corner kick past
Panthers keeper Jameson Conner.
Nine minutes later, Everson’’s
beautifully-struck diagonal ball
found Marek behind the
Chatham defense where the
senior winger’’s finish made it
2-0. Then, 14 minutes before
halftime, Monks played a gorgeous pass that split the
Chatham defense on the way to
Logan Ackley, who calmly beat
Conner to make it 3-0.
““It’’s great. When we’’re moving the ball around the way
we’’re capable of, things are

clicking for us and things are
happening,”” Henry said. ““When
that level of play goes down,
you see the other team pounce
on opportunities and it happened tonight.””
In the second half, the Patriots
lost their dominance in the middle of the field as the Panthers
pressed forward, with B-P
keeper Devin Page needing to
make several key saves in order
to keep the Panthers off the
board.
Page made five saves en route
to his 11th shutout of the season
and the Patriots capped off the
game when Marek drilled a leftfooted shot off Conner’’s hands
and into the net with 40 seconds
left in regulation, but Chatham
coach Justin Forrest felt his
team was on even terms with BP throughout the final 40 minutes.
““I was talking with their coach
and it was, ‘‘What happens to
your team? They were a completely different team from 20
minutes to the end?”” Forrest
said. ““He was like, ‘‘Justin, I’’ve
been telling them (about that)
all year.’’ I wish them the best of
luck and I hope they keep their
intensity up for a full 80 minutes.””
While
the
third-seeded
Patriots were able to win comfortably Wednesday, Henry
expects a stiffer test Saturday at
5 p.m. when sixth-seeded
Hoosick Falls —— which is up in
Class B this season after winning a Section II Class C title
and reaching the state final four
in 2012 —— pays a quarterfinal
visit to Patriot Field.
““They are a very, very good
team. We’’ve got our work cut
out for us,”” Henry said. ““We’’re
gonna spend a couple days and
figure out what they’’ve got
going on their end and put
together a game plan.
““It’’s sectionals, so there’’s no
guarantee what’’s going to happen as a result,”” he added.
““We’’ve got to come in and play
much harder than we did this

pitcher
Jon Lester
throws during
the first
inning of
Game 1 of
baseball’s
World Series
against the
St. Louis
Cardinals
Wednesday,
in Boston.
Boston eases to 8-1 victory in Game 1 of World Series
BOSTON (AP) —— An easy toss
on a sure out that skittered away. A
routine popup that somehow
dropped between Gold Glovers.
And something even more startling
—— umpires reversing a key call.
Most everything fell into place
for the Boston Red Sox in the
World Series opener.
Mike Napoli hit a three-run
double right after a game-changing decision in the very first
inning, Jon Lester made the early
lead stand up and the Red Sox
romped past the sloppy St. Louis
Cardinals 8-1 Wednesday night
The Associated
Press
for their ninth straight Series win.
A season before Major League
Baseball is expected to expand
instant replay, fans got to see a
preview. The entire six-man crew
huddled and flipped a ruling on a
forceout at second base —— without looking at any video.
““I think based on their group
conversation, surprisingly, to a
certain extent, they overturned it
and I think got the call right,””
Boston manager John Farrell said.
David Ortiz was robbed of a
grand slam by Carlos Beltran —— a
catch that sent the star right fielder
By
ADAM
SHINDER
to a hospital with bruised ribs ——
but Big Papi later hit a two-run
homer following third baseman
David Freese’’s bad throw.
The Red Sox also capitalized on
two errors by shortstop Pete
Kozma to extend a Series winning streak that began when they
swept St. Louis in 2004. Boston
never trailed at any point in those
four games and coasted on this
rollicking night at Fenway Park,
thanks to a hideous display by the
Cardinals.

BROADALBIN —— The
Broadalbin-Perth Patriots were
more than good enough
Wednesday night to coast past
Chatham in the opening round
of the Section II Class B boys
soccer tournament. But, B-P
head coach Brian Henry said,
if the Patriots want to make a
serious bid for a third sectional
title in five seasons, they’’ll
have to make sure things are a
little crisper the next time
Please see B-P,

MK: We were just discussing
the other day how our All-Area
team
Inside
might sort
B-P, AHS football out when
we put it
— Pages 28. 29 together
in a few weeks, so the area’’s
best players should be fresh in
our heads. With that in mind,
what player —— or players ——
jump out to you in terms of having the most potential impact on
his team’’s playoff chances?
AS: It’’d be easy to go ahead
and pick a quarterback —— and
I’’m tempted to take the easy
way out —— but I think the most
important group of players in
this postseason will be the
Amsterdam defensive line.
Specifically, starting tackles
Nick Lomauro and Brian
Cranker need to be more disruptive than they have been against
the Rams’’ toughest opponents
this year, or Amsterdam will
likely struggle to stop opposing
offenses yet again.
MK: I think you could say
something very similar about the
B-P defensive line —— if Phil
Hemstreet, Pierre LaPort, Zach
Newfrock and Andre Taylor are
not their usual disruptive forces,
the Patriots will struggle mightily —— but I am going to the quarterback position and will ignore
the fact that you basically called
such a move a cop out. My pick

Literacy Academy.
is F-F’’s Russ Williams. The senior has the tools to lead the
Braves on a deep run in the
playoffs and he has something to
prove after Week 5’’s rough
game in Chatham.
AS: The easy choice is usually
easy because it’’s good, and I
can’’t argue with your pick. Just
to throw a couple other guys
out, Amsterdam quarterback
