NEW BALTIMORE — A family of seven is hopeful after an early-morning fire destroyed their home Thursday, police said. Emergency personnel responded to a fire at 509 High Rock Road at about 4:30 a.m., according to alerts from Greene County 911. The cause remains under investigation by state police. “We’re going to be here awhile,” state police Senior Investigator Pete Kusminsky said Thursday afternoon. Homeowners Brett and Shasta Carter and their five children, ages 5, 8, 9, 13 and 15, were not home at the time of the blaze, Shasta said. The family has three dogs, which escaped the devastating flames. The dogs’ safety was Shasta’s first concern, she said. “Everybody’s out safely — no fatalities, no injuries,” Brett said, adding the home is a total loss.

CATSKILL — A proposed permit to regulate livestock in the village of Catskill caused some ruffled feathers among residents at Wednesday’s village board meeting. Residents have owned livestock in the village over the past several years, including chickens and a pig, but it didn’t result in neighbor complaints or health concerns, Catskill Village President Vincent Seeley said during the meeting. The village doesn’t have an ordinance relating to keeping farm animals, but has noise ordinances and health regulations. The discussion about barring livestock from village properties comes on the heels of a quality-of-life complaint a resident recently made to the Village Board of Trustees. “We really haven’t acted on it like we did now,” Seeley said. “Nobody’s in trouble today, right now, but what we’re considering doing is making a permitting process that you would fill out some paperwork.” One of the issues having chickens in a residential neighborhood is skunks and other critters are attracted to the eggs they lay, Seeley said. “I want people to have pets, whether they’re dogs or cats, but I also want it to be managed in a way in the village that’s contained,” the village president added. “Fifteen chickens in a little, teeny slice of a village lot — it gets to be a little much.” Bird feeders attract more wildlife than the eggs chickens lay, Tom Stupplebeen said,

ALBANY — The field in the 19th Congressional District race was reduced by one after the state Board of Elections ruled Thursday that Luisa Parker, an independent candidate from Callicoon, filed an invalid number of petitions to get on the November ballot. Other independent candidates are also facing challenges from the same source — Rhinebeck Democratic Committee member Rima Liscum. Parker announced her candidacy in March, running as an independent on her own line called Making the Impossible Possible. Candidates were required to file petitions at the end of July to make it on the ballot, and the three independent candidates — Parker, “Law and Order: SVU” star Diane Neal of Hurley and film producer Dal
LaMagna of Rhinebeck — had to file a minimum of 3,000 signatures. The state Board of Elections considered specific objections filed by Liscum against Parker’s petitions at its meeting Wednesday, concluding that Parker had not filed a sufficient number of signatures to be on the ballot this year.
Rhinebeck Democrats are backing Democratic primary winner Antonio Delgado, who lives in Rhinebeck. Liscum filed a general objection to the petitions last week, but was required to provide the state Board of Elections with specific objections by Thursday. “Even assuming that every signature submitted is valid, the petition contains 1,906 fewer signatures than is
statutorily required,” according to Liscum’s complaint against Parker. “As a result, the independent nomination for Luisa Parker is invalid and she cannot appear on the ballot for the November 2018 election.” After reviewing the specific objections the state Board of Elections determined without a hearing that Parker filed 1,601 petitions, far below the required number. Parker has three days to
appeal the board’s decision. Her campaign did not respond to requests for comment. Liscum sent specific objections for both LaMagna and Neal’s campaigns Thursday, claiming multiple petition signatures the candidates filed in July are invalid. See NY-19 A10

“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!” Don Lemon responded: “Who’s the real dummy? A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?” Now, there’s the petition (reported on by The Hill), which nobody expects to result in a career move for James. But it can be seen as a new statement of discontent by critics of the Trump administration and DeVos, who has long been a critic
of America’s public schools and who once called them “a dead end.” James chose to open a traditional public school, not a charter school. Charters are publicly funded but privately operated and a favorite of DeVos. This is how the petition presents James and DeVos: “The first candidate is famed athlete LeBron James, a highly respected and extremely influential community advocate and activist who recently opened a state-of-the-art public school for at-risk children in Akron,

LeBron James or Betsy DeVos? If you could pick from two candidates to be nation’s secretary of education and those were your candidates, whom would you pick? That is the point of an online petition posted late Tuesday on Care2.com and titled “LeBron James for Secretary of Education.” By midday Thursday, there were 11,348 signatures, and the surge of signatures caused organizers to keep increasing their goal. James, arguably one of the best professional basketball players around, has been in the news recently for more than just his move from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Los Angeles Lakers. His family foundation recently helped fund and open a public school for at-risk children in Akron, Ohio, a move public education advocates applauded. James, who has been a strong, public voice for civil rights as well as a President Trump critic, last week found himself the target of a racist tweet, along with CNN’s Don Lemon, from Trump: Trump tweeted on Aug. 4:

Ohio - with community services on-site like job placement for parents, guaranteed college tuition for every student who graduates, and a score of other student services like a FREE bicycle and helmet.” “The second candidate is Betsy DeVos, a scandal-ridden Republican donor who shows an inexcusable dislike for public education, wants to gut protections for women and minorities, and has advocated for teachers to be armed in schools.” LeBron James for secretary of education? The U.S. president is a former reality show host and businessman whose companies filed for bankruptcy six times. He opened up the for-profit, nonaccredited Trump University that is defunct. The school triggered lawsuits amid accusations of fraud. Trump settled for $25 million. DeVos is a Michigan billionaire who spent decades supporting alternatives to traditional public schools, never attended a public school, never sent her children to one. You can decide how farfetched it seems: Education Secretary LeBron James.
WASHINGTON — Scientists say California’s record wildfires have been fed by an abnormally hot and dry fire season, but the Trump administration continues to insist that there’s a culprit to blame other than climate change: environmentalists and their policies. “Radical environmentalists” should shoulder some of the blame for pushing back against “active forest management,” policies that include mechanical thinning and timber harvest to reduce the risks of wildfires, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke wrote in an op-ed in USA Today Wednesday. Zinke is the latest administration official to echo President Donald Trump, who tweeted Monday that the fires that have killed at least seven people and consumed more than 500,000 acres of land, should be blamed on “bad environmental laws.” It’s an assertion that environmentalists and scientists reject — especially as his administration works to dismantle international efforts to combat climate change. “Zinke, like Trump, continues to deny the obvious. It is climate change that is exacerbating wildfire season in the West,” said Kirin Kennedy, associate director for lands and water legislative policy at Sierra Club. “The long-term safety of homes, businesses and families in the path of these fires relies on cutting climate pollution — something wholly at odds with Secretary Zinke’s push to drill, mine and frack every possible acre of our parks and public lands.” Trump started blaming environmentalists earlier this week. “Must also tree clear to stop fire spreading!” Trump tweeted, apparently referencing an unrelated agricultural dispute involving the amount of water from snow melt in the Sierra’s being allowed to flow

into the Pacific Ocean to sustain fish populations in rivers rather than being used to irrigate farmland. U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross picked up on that theme Wednesday, saying he’s directed the National Marine Fisheries Service to “facilitate access to the water needed to fight the ongoing wildfires affecting the state of California.” But California’s fire service says there’s no shortage of water. “We have plenty of water to fight these fires,” California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said Monday in a statement tweeted by ABC7 news. It said that two of the biggest fires are near lakes that are being used to obtain water. Cal Fire had no immediate response to Ross’s move on Wednesday. Michael Mann, a distinguished professor of atmospheric science at Pennsylvania State University, said a key contributor to the worsening wildfires is increased temperatures and drought linked to human-caused climate change. “Trump is trying to eliminate regulations designed to combat human-caused climate change, and to scuttle international efforts to deal with climate change,” Mann said in an email. “So the problem isn’t environmental regulations. It’s
his (and enabling congressional Republicans) efforts to dismantle environmental regulations.” Zinke argued in the opinion piece that when authorities “try to thin forests of dead and dying timber, or we try to sustainably harvest timber from dense and fire-prone areas, we are attacked with frivolous litigation from radical environmentalists who would rather see forests and communities burn than see a logger in the
woods.” “The buildup of fuels is the condition we can and must reverse through active forest management like prescribed burns, mechanical thinning and timber harvests,” he wrote. “The relationship is not as easy as he describes it,” Miller said in a phone interview. On Tuesday, speaking to reporters from his resort in New Jersey, Trump pledged to help protect people in the path of the fires. “We’re deeply grateful to our incredible firefighters and first responders,” Trump said. “They’re really brave people.” Jennifer A.

COEYMANS — In 2014 the company building the massive Tappan Zee Bridge project at the Port of Coeymans received a temporary permit to build four piers that enabled contractors to load huge pieces of the bridge onto barges in the Hudson River. Now, Carver Companies, which owns the port, is looking to take over the permits and make them permanent. The permit covers a straddle crane and assembly “sled” structures, which resemble piers. Two of the piers, or trestles, reach more than 100 feet into the river while the other two extend more than 200 feet. Both sets are cemented into the riverbed. One pair is used to move large structures from the port onto barges in the river, while the other is used to transfer items from barges onto the port. The temporary permit, which is held by Tappan Zee Constructors — the company that built the bridge — is set to expire at the end of 2019. But port owner Carver Laraway is hoping to take over the permit and make it permanent, leaving the structures in place, according to Carver Companies’ general counsel George McHugh. “Tappan Zee Constructors needed
to build the infrastructure to move pieces onto barges,” McHugh said. “They went through the process and to get the permits in place quickly, they got a temporary permit.” If the temporary permit were to expire without being made permanent, the trestles and cement piles would have to be torn out of the riverbed. McHugh contended that with more large-scale projects possibly coming to the Port of Coeymans, it would be more efficient and better for the environment — and the river itself — if the existing structures were left in place rather than tearing them out and later building new ones. He pointed to possible future projects that could be undertaken at the port and cited a potential project that would construct windmills. Carver Companies submitted its proposal to transfer the permit and make it permanent through the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. If the permit was allowed to expire and the structures removed, if another large-scale project came along it would all have to be done all over again. And McHugh said that would prove more damaging to the river, and the fish species that live there, than leaving the existing structures in place. “Everything would have to be

The permit for the two trestles is set to expire on Dec. 31, 2019, if they are not made permanent.
ripped out in 2019 and theoretically put back in when another project comes along,” McHugh said. “Ripping it out would disrupt the environment more than if we just left it in place.” While Tappan Zee Constructors currently holds the temporary permit, it could be transferred to Carver Companies, but McHugh said the company would only do so if the permit was made permanent. He added that the company was willing to fund the environmental studies that would be needed to grant the permit permanent status, and to take any mitigation measures deemed necessary. Carver Companies has already submitted a 350-page proposal and has reached out to local stakeholders, such as the environmental group
Scenic Hudson, the Center for Economic Growth and elected officials, McHugh said. Assemblyman Chris Tague, who represents Coeymans, has penned a letter of support for the proposal. “Allowing the Port of Coeymans to permanently retain the existing structures makes both environmental and economic sense for New York as the state continues to address its growing infrastructure needs,” Tague wrote in the letter to the DEC and the Army Corps of Engineers. “Beyond that, this location becomes even more desirable for future construction projects, creating additional jobs and further contributing to the economic vitality of the capital district region of New York State.”

MARY DEMPSEY MANAGING EDITOR
Land trusts accept great responsibility The nagging problem of what will happen to family farms in Columbia and Greene counties could take another step toward a solution, thanks to the state Department of Agriculture & Markets and local land conservancies. Ag & Markets did its part by making $500,000 available to eligible land conservancies to protect farmland in the state. Now, it’s up to the land conservancies in Greene and Columbia counties to do what they have done best for years: taking advantage of grants to protect valuable farmland. Funds will be provided through the Land Trust Grants Program, which is kicking off its second round of the year. In this
round, up to $50,000 per grant will be awarded. In simple terms, this is how it works: Conservancies purchase easements for farmland from the farmers in exchange for the development rights to the land. Farmers often prefer having the cash to holding the development rights. Historically, this approach has been most successful. For example, the Columbia County Land Conservancy closed purchases of easements on the Doyle Farm in Austerlitz and the Ronnybrook Dairy Farm in 2017. The Greene Land Trust in 2017 completed an interesting transaction when Theodore Flege, of Hannacroix, donated 102
acres of farmland to the Trust to keep the land out of the clutches of developers after his death. The Columbia Land Conservancy and the Greene Land Trust, with help from the state and, in some cases, Scenic Hudson, have stepped up to perform a unique public service. Farmers are coping with advancing age and expensive changes in agricultural techniques. It’s now the job of land trusts to be the caretakers of future generations of farmers and farmland. Maintaining these properties as farms or protecting their integrity against developers will depend on vigilance and commitment.
The Senate needs to find out what Kavanaugh thinks about guns The Washington Post
Does the constitutional right to armed self-defense extend outside the home? The Supreme Court didn’t address that issue when it a decade ago issued a landmark ruling affirming an individual’s right to keep firearms in the home for personal protection. Now, that question is on the front burner with a ruling by a federal appeals court that if allowed to stand - would have alarming implications for public safety. The decision underscores why gun-control advocates are concerned that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation could mean a dramatic - and they believe dangerous - tilt against efforts to regulate gun safety. In a case involving Hawaii and some of the country’s strictest gun laws, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit recently ruled 2 to 1 that the Constitution protects the right to openly carry a gun in public. “For better or for worse, the Second Amendment does protect a right to carry a firearm in public for self-defense,” wrote Judge
Diarmuid O’Scannlain in a 59-page opinion that hinges largely on the use of the word “bear” in the Second Amendment. By contrast, the state’s interest in limiting the public display of weapons was given short shrift. Hawaii is likely to appeal to the larger appeals court, which has a more liberal tilt than the panel, composed of three judges named by Republican presidents. Two years ago, the court overturned a 2-to-1 opinion, also written by O’Scannlain, and found that the Second Amendment does not include a right to carry concealed guns in public. However the 9th Circuit rules on the related question of open carry, legal observers expect the matter, about which several appeals courts have disagreed, to end up at the Supreme Court. The justices in recent years have shied away from cases involving gun restrictions. But the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy could usher in a new willingness to take on issues left unanswered by the 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller decision- and to strike down reasonable gun regulations.

Disturbingly, Kavanaugh, breaking from two other Republican appointees in a follow-on case to Heller, adopted the extreme position - rejected by other courts that have examined the issue - that the District could not prohibit military-style assault weapons. That’s concerning. While the lack of clarity from the court on gun issues in recent years has been frustrating, even more troubling would be an interpretation of the Constitution that backs away from the admonition that the right guaranteed by the Second Amendment, like other constitutional provisions, is not unlimited. As Justice Antonin Scalia advised in 2008, the Constitution does not provide “a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.” Those words, along with Kavanaugh’s dissent on assault weapons, should serve as a basis for the Senate to use the nominee’s confirmation hearings to find out where he stands on open carry, as well as on other laws aimed at curtailing gun violence.

Journalists’ Day in Iran is a joke that isn’t funny Jason Rezaian The Washington Post
On Wednesday, Iran will mark its annual celebration of the press. It’s called “Journalists’ Day.” This long-running display of cognitive dissonance is a reminder that Iran’s Islamic Republic aspires to present itself as something it is certainly not: representative, transparent and tolerant. The day commemorates the Aug. 8, 1998, attack on Iran’s consulate in the Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif by Taliban fighters who abducted 10 Iranian diplomats and a reporter for the Islamic Republic News Agency. They were all killed. Each year the authorities stage a ceremony in one of Tehran’s largest auditoriums. Dignitaries give speeches and present awards to print, video and photo journalists who have distinguished themselves with their work - at least in the eyes of the powers that be. These are, of course, the same officials who habitually flout diplomatic norms and press freedom. It’s an exercise that evidently requires considerable moral gymnastics. But such hypocrisy is deeply ingrained in Iran’s theocratic system, which demands outward adherence to rules that are often ignored by those in power. But instead of simply dismissing the ceremony as bogus, we should use the opportunity to acknowledge that Iranian journalists remain committed to informing the public - often at great peril to themselves. Iran is far from the only country in its region where the media must contend with harsh restrictions. Yet there are many reporters in the country - both foreign and domestic - who remain committed to explaining a society that is notoriously hard to access and navigate.
Honest and hard-working journalists in Iran - and in other authoritarian countries - deserve far more credit and respect than they receive for working within the strictures of states that have little use for the free flow of information, and in many cases actively work against it. Good luck making sense of events inside Iran without the dedicated efforts of foreign and domestic journalists. Though their roles are often neglected, they are instrumental when it comes to illuminating one of the most opaque societies on Earth. Inside Iran, dozens of journalists, including me, have been imprisoned under false accusations of cooperating with foreign governments. Nothing - not even that smartphones and social media that have made censorship increasingly ineffective - has slowed Iran’s ruthless campaign to silence reporters. Even in Orwellian dystopias, there are always those who defy the rules in pursuit of truth. In my experience, there are many more of them than one might think. The reality is that much of what we know about Iran comes from reporters working at state-run media outlets who have unfettered access to information - often government reports or incriminating images of corruption and repression - that they are compelled to censor before distributing to the public. In 2009, following massive unrest over the contested reelection of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a treasure trove of documents, photographs and video surfaced confirming the state’s brutal repression. That sort of material could come only from state archives breached by its employees. Such leaks continue, quietly but consistently. These reporters work at
great personal risk and for little reward. Honest Iranian journalists face undeserved pressure from a state that tightly controls access and threatens them both obliquely and overtly. Iran’s state TV news channel often clumsily retaliates against reporting it finds threatening by airing false and coerced confessions from journalists and other detainees under duress. “The regime has extended its fight against media freedom beyond the country’s borders and also targets the international media, even as it tries to maintain appearances,” Reporters Without Borders wrote of Iran this year. The group’s annual Press Freedom Index ranked the Islamic republic 164th out of 180 countries. Iranian authorities, for example, have taken aim at the BBC Persian service’s staff and their family members by blocking their ability to make financial transactions. This isn’t a new tactic. The regime has, for years, harassed Iranian journalists living and working abroad. Meanwhile, propaganda and other forms of fake news, disseminated by both the state and some of its opponents, spread rampantly (especially on the popular messaging app Telegram), additionally undercutting the impact of any accurate reporting. All in all, now is a bleak moment for journalism in Iran. Colleagues there report that the already narrow space for expression is closing. At a time when Iran is facing renewed external pressures as well as rising internal discontent, that should be worrisome for everyone. But for the moment I’ll take the opportunity to send a message to journalists fighting the good fight in Iran: I salute you.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Retirement has impact on all of New Baltimore To the editor: New Baltimore, did you feel it? It was quiet and almost imperceptible, but it had an impact on all of us in New Baltimore. There was a change, a shift....no, more like a tearing in the fabric, a hole created in the fine thread work of our town. In May, reaching a 20-year threshold of service, Denis Jordan resigned as our Highway Superintendent. To all who know him, Denis Jordan is a man of strong moral character — a meat and potatoes kind of guy. Born and raised in New Baltimore, Denis holds a deep love for this town. His family has lived here for generations and he found and married his wife, Diane (nee Miller) here. Married in 1978, they both began their legacy of public service to our town. Before Denis was elected as Highway Superintendent
in 1998 he worked part-time in the Highway Department. With years of experience in the operation and repair of heavy-duty equipment, and his keen business knowledge, Denis quickly brought change and unification to the department. Inheriting an aging equipment inventory, Denis began first by having his crew make most equipment repairs in-house versus outsourcing the work, saving taxpayers money in his budget and freeing needed funds to acquire (new or used) equipment and materials for highway repair. He started a program of sharing equipment and materials with other towns benefitting all the taxpayers. Denis’ knowledge, honesty and integrity is recognized and regarded by fellow town, county and state highway workers. Our town highways create a patchwork fabric that
touches us all. Our once proud town has endured so many rips and tears over the past few years that we seem to have lost our connection to each other. Unity and fair play is lost. These rips to our Town’s fabric began with wrongful, and politically biased, accusations targeting Denis. Just before Denis’ last reelection, town leaders attacked Denis’ foundation of honesty and integrity with false accusations of wrongdoing that were ultimately found to be ungrounded and obviously politically motivated. Not done with their misdeeds, they’re false accusations have continued. Denis, New Baltimore is proud to know you. We thank you for your fairness, honesty and hard work and your service to our town is already missed. ARLENE MCKEON NEW BALTIMORE

Trump’s core support remains solid, but a significant minority of Republicans have soured, study finds By David Lauter Los Angeles Times
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s backing from his core supporters has been famously solid — Trump himself once joked that he could shoot someone on New York’s Fifth Avenue without jeopardizing their votes. But that steadfast backing coexists with a less positive fact for the president: Nearly one in five Trump voters from 2016 have soured on him since he took office, according to a new study by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center. The numbers come from a survey Pew conducted of 3,014 voters who took part in a panel that was questioned three times during 2016 and then ABACA PRESS/TNS again in 2018. Each time, they were asked to rate their feel- President Trump departs Andrews Air Force Base en route to Wilkes-Barre, Pa., where he will ings about Trump on a 0-to- participate in a roundtable with supporters and a Make America Great Again rally on Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018, in Joint Base Andrews, Md. 100 scale.

About one in eight people who voted for Trump in 2016 fall into the group Pew labeled as Skeptics. They had chilly feelings toward Trump during the primaries, warmed to him during the general election, but quickly soured again. On average, they currently rate their feelings toward him at a low 33 on the scale. By comparison, people who voted for Hillary Clinton rate their feelings toward Trump at a frosty 8. A final, smaller group, the Disillusioned, had warm feelings toward Trump during the primaries and on through the election, but have turned cold since he became president. They made up 6 percent of Trump’s voters. Another problem for Trump is that while about one in five of his voters have grown colder toward him, few on the other side have warmed. Among Clinton voters, 88 percent gave Trump ratings in the “very cold” range, a share that has actually grown since the election, Pew found. On the other hand, the fact that voters have grown colder toward Trump doesn’t
necessarily mean they wouldn’t vote for him if he runs again. In 2016, a significant number of voters cast ballots for Trump even though they disapproved of him; their negative feelings toward Clinton were greater. The study also highlighted a big gender gap in feelings toward Trump. A majority of Trump Enthusiasts and Converts are men. By contrast, more than 60 percent of the Skeptics and Disillusioned Trump voters are women. Trump Enthusiasts are also disproportionately white voters who did not graduate from college — a finding that jibes with the attendance at the president’s campaign rallies.

Overlooked no more: Julia Sand, whose letters inspired a president James Pothen The New York Times News Service
Julia Sand was 31, unmarried and homebound from an illness when she wrote the first of a remarkable series of letters to Chester A. Arthur. It was the summer of 1881 and President James Garfield was dying a slow death after being shot. Arthur, his vice president, was a notorious member of the Republican political machine who was hiding from the public eye when he read Sand’s first letter. The nation had been dreading the prospect of an Arthur presidency. A Chicago Tribune editorial described it as “a pending calamity of the utmost magnitude.” The New York Times wrote that Arthur was “about the last man who would be considered eligible” for the job. Historian Andrew Dickson White noted that even Arthur’s closest friends were reported to have said, “Chet Arthur President of the United States! Good God!” But Sand believed in Arthur, who became president later that year. He had started his career as an idealistic lawyer, arguing and winning Jennings v. Third Ave. Railroad, a case that led to the desegregation of New York City streetcars. Sand wrote that the attempt on Garfield’s life and the lack of faith the country seemed to have in Arthur had moved her to try to
We’ll never know for sure, but there’s good reason to believe that this anonymous young woman helped to change the course of the presidency,
SCOTT S. GREENBERGER, AUTHOR OF “THE UNEXPECTED PRESIDENT: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF CHESTER A. ARTHUR” inspire him. “Great emergencies awaken generous traits which have lain dormant half a life,” Sand wrote. “If there is a spark of true nobility in you, now is the occasion to let it shine.” Her letter urged him, “Reform!” And reform he did. Arthur shocked the nation, his party and his closest friends by calling on Congress to pass the Pendleton act, the nation’s first civil service reform. The act required that government employees pass a competitive examination to win their jobs, meaning merit — not party affiliation — determined who would work for the federal government. Sand continued to write to Arthur throughout his term. In nearly two dozen letters she advised, cajoled and scolded him on policy matters large and small, from whom to keep in his Cabinet to major pieces of legislation like the Chinese Exclusion Act, which halted immigration from China and prevented Chinese immigrants from becoming American citizens.
After Arthur signed the act, despite initially vetoing a version, Sand chastised him: “Why do you not do what you do with your whole soul? — or have you only half of one? When you vetoed the Chinese Bill, the better class of people throughout the country were delighted. Now you sign it. And what is the difference, as it now stands?” In her letters Sand would call herself Arthur’s “little dwarf,” a reference to the only member of the king’s court who would dare to tell him the truth. There is no evidence Arthur ever responded, but some historians are convinced she was heard. “We’ll never know for sure, but there’s good reason to believe that this anonymous young woman helped to change the course of the presidency,” Scott S. Greenberger, author of “The Unexpected President: The Life and Times of Chester A. Arthur” (2017), said in an interview. “At a time when women didn’t have the ability to be involved in politics she used these letters to influence a president and change the course of
history.” Arthur’s wife, Ellen, died of pneumonia just before he was elected vice president, and he only served one term as president. While in office he was diagnosed with Bright’s disease, a kidney ailment, which, combined with grief and the strains of the presidency, left him depressed, exhausted and nauseated. He made a halfhearted bid for re-election in 1884 but lost the nomination to James G. Blaine and died two years later, on Nov. 18, 1886, of the disease. Whatever Sand’s impact was on Arthur’s actions, it seemed he valued the relationship. Shortly before he died, Arthur ordered all of his former papers to be burned except for Sand’s letters. He also once visited her, at her brother’s home on the Upper East Side of Manhattan on Aug. 20, 1882. Julia Isabella Sand was born in Brooklyn in 1850 to Christian Henry Sand, a German immigrant who worked his way up to become the president of the Metropolitan Gas-Light Co. of New York, and his wife, Isabella.
She never married. Sand enjoyed the privileges of wealth: she spoke French, read poetry and vacationed in Newport, Rhode Island, and Saratoga Springs, New York. She spent her days reading newspapers and discussing politics. One of her nephews, Paul B. Rossire, described her to Arthur’s grandson as, “a talented woman, something of a bluestocking,” or intellectual. By the age of 31 she had become plagued by an illness whose conditions included spinal trouble and deafness and was confined mostly to her home. She died in May 1933 in a home for the mentally ill on Long Island and is buried with her family in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. She was 83. The exact cause of her death was unknown. According to Michelle Krowl, a specialist at the Library of Congress, Sand had published articles in The Century, Harper’s and other magazines. The words she will be remembered for, however, were addressed to an audience of one. “It is for you to choose whether your record shall be written in black or gold,” she wrote Arthur in that first letter. “For the sake of your country, for your own sake, and for the sakes of all who have ever loved you, let it be pure and bright.”

Adoption fees to be waived
FORAGED FLOWER ARRANGING
GHENT — The Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA announced that beginning on Aug. 13, all dog adoption fees will be waived for the remainder of August and through September. Since 2007, CGHS/SPCA has offered “Furrever Free” cats and kittens to approved homes. As of late, however, the shelter has recently been overcome by dozens
of stray dogs from Columbia and Greene counties. Unfortunately, the owners are not redeeming the dogs, and they are now abandoned at the shelter, awaiting new, caring homes. In hopes of boosting adoptions for the remainder of summer, CGHS/ SPCA will be waiving all dog adoption fees for approved homes. All adopted dogs will be spayed or neutered,
health-tested, vaccinated, de-wormed, microchipped, and will be provided with a collar and leash, a flea/tick preventative, and a veterinary follow-up exam at the CGHS/SPCA clinic free of charge . To get preapproved for adoptions, please visit our website at cghs.org. For more information, please email email@example.com or call 518-828-6044.

Results of second annual New York State Craft Beer competition announced ALBANY — Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the results of the second annual New York State Craft Beer Competition, which featured 642 New York State-brewed beers. For the second straight year, Brooklyn-based Threes Brewing took home top honors, winning the Governor’s Excelsior Cup. Gold medals were awarded to 23 beers from breweries across the state. “New York’s world-class craft breweries are thriving and helping to drive growth in our farms, local economies and tourism industries across the state,” Governor Cuomo said. “I congratulate these craft breweries on their success and encourage those interested to experience our state’s top-ranking beers at the Great New York State Fair later this month.” The New York State Craft Beer Competition is sponsored by the New York State Brewers Association, in coordination with Taste NY, the Raise a Glass Foundation and the Great New York State Fair, and is open to any New York State craft brewer.

Applications are being accepted for the Pomeroy Foundation Historic Roadside Markers SYRACUSE — Beginning on Aug. 3, The William G. Pomeroy Foundation officially began accepting 2018 applications for fully funded Historic Roadside Markers to commemorate history in several New York counties (Program Regions 4-6). On that date, grant application materials will become available for the following New York State counties: Columbia, Delaware, Greene, Sullivan, Ulster (Region 4); Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Warren, Washington (Region 5); and Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, and St. Lawrence (Region 6). Letters of Intent for Regions 4-6 are due by Sept. 14, and the final application deadline is Oct. 1. A complete grant schedule by region is available on the Pomeroy Foundation website http://www.wgpfoundation.org/index.cfm/
nys-historic-grant-programs/historic-roadsidemarker-program/schedule/ Municipalities and charitable 501(c)(3) organizations in New York State are welcome to apply for the Historic Roadside Marker Grants. Local historical organizations or municipal historians will often apply for the grant on behalf of property owners. For information about all of the Pomeroy Foundation’s Historic Signage Grant Programs, marker guidelines and how to apply, visit: www. wgpfoundation.org or call 315-913-4060. The William G. Pomeroy Foundation is a private foundation established in 2005 by Bill Pomeroy. The Foundation’s two main initiatives are to diversify the Be the Match Registry by supporting bone marrow drives and helping community’s celebrate their history through
various historic signage grant programs. To date, the Foundation has awarded more than 700 grants for historic signage in New York and beyond. The Pomeroy Foundation strongly believes that historic markers play an important role by serving a dual purpose. The signs educate the public and foster historic tourism, which in turn economically benefits the communities in which the signs are placed. They also reveal unique historical contributions in each community and instill pride of place in local residents. The Foundation also offers professional development grants for historical societies. Through its other core initiative, the Foundation has organized hundreds of marrow drives and registered more than 25,000 potential donors, producing 75 donor/patient matches.

Thomas Cole Site presents Spectrum A Site-Specific Contemporary Art Exhibition CATSKILL – The Thomas Cole National Historic Site announced today a new contemporary art exhibition SPECTRUM, opening August 14, that brings together the work of 11 contemporary artists that will be installed throughout the 19thcentury historic home, studios, and grounds of the artist Thomas Cole (1801-1848). The exhibit will be on view at Thomas Cole Site August 14 - November 18. The Opening Reception with Artists is Saturday, August 25, 4-6 p.m. The project is inspired by and in dialogue with Thomas Cole’s own work, spanning the interior colors he carefully chose for the house, his own color wheel painting titled Diagram of Contrasts, and his extensive writing on the topic of color, which details his desire to invent an instrument that could play the sound of color. The historic site’s 1815 Main House also contains the earliest-known interior decorative painting by an American artist, and its bold features reveal an added dimension to Cole’s use of and thinking about color. SPECTRUM will feature more than 30 new and existing artworks and installations, alongside Cole’s work, that are made by 11 contemporary artists: Polly Apfelbaum (Elizaville, NY and New York City); Ann Veronica Janssens (Brussels, Belgium); Valerie Hammond (New York City); Anne Lindberg (Ancramdale, NY); Laura Moriarty (Rosendale, NY); Portia Munson (Catskill, NY); Jackie Saccoccio
(West Cornwall, CT); Lisa Sanditz (Tivoli, NY); Julianne Swartz (Stone Ridge, NY and New York City); Mildred Thompson (deceased; Atlanta), and Linda Weintraub (Rhinebeck, NY). Many of the exhibiting artists
have international careers but maintain deep local ties to the Hudson River Valley, as did Cole. All works will be presented in a new site-specific context, in which they have never-before
been shown, and carefully placed to be in conversation with Cole and the unique historic rooms and grounds of the 19th-century artist’s home and studios. The diverse projects on view examine color in relation to smell, sight, and taste, as well as music, emotion, science, abstraction, and the natural world. The contemporary artworks will include an immersive sitespecific light installation by Ann Veronica Janssens, a garden designed by Portia Munson, woodblock prints by Polly Apfelbaum, Camera-Less-Videos by Julianne Swartz, an outdoor rainbow by Valerie Hammond, vibrant Radiation Explorations by Mildred Thompson, and monumental scaled works on linen by Jackie Saccoccio. The artist Lisa Sanditz is creating for the occasion an installation of sculpture and painting, combined with works from the Cole Site’s collection by Emily Cole (Thomas Cole’s daughter), and Anne Lindberg is presenting a new site-specific thread installation and works on paper that respond to Thomas Cole’s periwinkle wall- color choice. Laura Moriarty created a “Tableau for Thomas Cole “ with pigmented beeswax, and Linda Weintraub will present an installation of home-preserved food in the order of the color spectrum. The genesis of the exhibition grew out of ongoing conversations between Cole site curator Kate Menconeri and artist Kiki Smith while working on Smith’s 2017 solo exhibition From the Creek at the Thomas Cole Site.
Ghent Playhouse to hold auditions for Regional Premiere of Florian Zeller’s ‘The Father’ GHENT — The Ghent Playhouse announces open auditions for THE FATHER – Written by Florian Zeller, translated by Christopher Hampton and directed by Brian Wagner on Sunday, August 12 at 7:30 p.m. and Monday, August 13 at 7:30 p.m. Possible callbacks on Thursday, August 16 at 7:30 p.m. Ghent Playhouse is located at 6 Town Hall Place (off Route 66) in Ghent. SYNOPSIS: Set in a Paris flat in present day, this is a story of an elderly man’s descent into dementia and the efforts of his daughter to balance her love for her father and the need to care for him, with the demands of her own life and relationship with her husband. Laced with humor, The Father works almost like a thriller as we see things through the confused eyes of Andre, as he struggles to make sense of
a progressively befuddling world and the complete strangers who enter his flat.

‘The Art of the Meal’ offers unique dining experience, private exhibition tours WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The interplay between cuisine and art takes center stage at the Clark Art Institute’s “The Art of the Meal,” a special dining experience inspired by the Clark’s summer exhibitions, Women Artists in Paris, 1850–1900 and The Art of Iron: Objects from the Musée Le Secq des Tournelles, Rouen, Normandy. The event takes place Friday, August 10 from 6–9 pm. Culinary guru Darra Goldstein and STARR Catering Executive Chef Daniel Hardy present a narrated meal exploring Europe’s rich and varied gastronomic traditions—and the ways in which France inspired chefs and painters alike at a time when Paris was the epicenter of both the art and food worlds. The evening begins with private after-hours tours of both exhibitions, led by curators Esther Bell and Kathleen Morris. Goldstein then guides guests through a six-course dinner that offers an intimate and exclusive experience inspired by the art and artists represented in the exhibitions. Tastes of Scandinavia,
Switzerland, England, America, and Russia are filtered through the lens of French haute cuisine. The menu includes wild mushroom toasts, smoked trout with lemon skyr on rye, Bündnerfleisch, summer fruit soup with red wine, salmon coulibiac, and roast duck with red currant sauce, baby beets, cucumber salad, and rösti. Specialty desserts include île flottante (floating island) and mini cream puffs with chocolate. Tickets are $250 per person and may be ordered online at clarkart.edu or by calling the box office at 413 458 0524. Seating is very limited; please reserve early.

The Roxbury Arts Group Announces Harpeth Rising CONTRIBUTED PHOTO
ROXBURY — The tird and final performance of the Roxbury Arts’ Group’s 2018 Essential Thursdays Performance Series will feature Harpeth Rising a classically trained trio playing violin, cello, acoustic guitar and a touch of banjo. The concert will take place on Thursday, August 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the Old School Baptist Church located at the intersection of Cartwright Road and County Route 36 in the DenverVega Valley. The traditional end-of-series community potluck will begin at 6pm and folks are encouraged to join in and bring a dish to share. Advance tickets for this event are $20 for adults and $18 for students and seniors. All tickets on the day of the performance are $25. For more information, please visit roxburyartsgroup.org or call 607.326.7908 Three classically trained musicians playing original music, as intricately arranged as a string quartet, lyrically rooted in the singer/songwriter tradition, and wrapped in three-part vocal harmonies reminiscent of both Appalachia and Medieval Europe. Building from the tonal depth of the cello (or is it a bass?), layering in the shimmering sounds of a violin and the strikingly natural addition of banjo, works to create a sound at once familiar and impossible to categorize. Unapologetic genre-benders, Harpeth Rising fuses Folk, Newgrass, Rock and Classical into
something organically unique. The three musicians of Harpeth Rising each hold classical performance degrees from some of the most venerated schools in the world: Indiana University, Oberlin, Eastman School of Music. But their classical background is only one dimension of this trio’s powerful musical voice. Hailing from vastly different parts of North America, each member of Harpeth Rising brings different influences to the core sound. Maria Di Meglio on cello, born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, was drawn to the music of her first-generation Italian and Balkan roots and grew up learning Eastern European folk songs alongside classical repertoire. Michelle Younger of Charlottesville, VA comes by her modern spin on old-time infused banjo authentically; her family has been in the United States for generations, and she is a descendent of Cole Younger, a member of the JamesYounger Gang and the namesame of his very own banjo tune. Jordana Greenberg, violin, grew up listening to the sounds of Stan Rogers, Leonard Cohen and Natalie McMaster in her native Canada before moving to Southern Indiana as a child. She studied classical violin by day and spent her nights learning the folk tunes and classic rocks songs that her family plays at the annual post-Passover jam session.
All three women began singing after they completed their instrumental studies, and found a passionate new musical avenue. They developed their voices and arrangements to bring life to the lyrical expressiveness of their original songs. Hallmarks of their music include expansive three-part harmonies, consummate musicianship and a deft, yet soulful, lyrical perspective. A community potluck dinner will be held on the lawn next to the Old School Baptist Church and concert goers are asked to join by bringing a dish to pass. Tables and chairs will be under the tent by the stream. The Essential Thursdays Concert Series is sponsored by Beaverdam Builders and Round Back Antiques. The programs and events offered by the Roxbury Arts Group are made possible through the support of the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, the A.

The couple is not sure what caused the fire, they said, and did not know of structural issues that could have led to the blaze. “I don’t know what could have started it,” Shasta said. Police would not comment on the nature or origin of the fire or if the blaze is suspicious. “All I can I say right now is it’s still under investigation,” Kusminsky said. The Carters are remaining optimistic despite their losses. “We’re going to just start over and build from the first board up,” Shasta said. “We’re going to rebuild and go from there.” Shasta first heard about the fire from her grandfather. “My grandfather called me because he heard it over the scanner,” she said.

adding he owns 20 chickens at his home on Grandview Avenue. “Do we have to register to have bird feeders?” Stupplebeen said. “There shouldn’t be a limit on the number of chickens [you can have].” Stan Raven isn’t sure how a permitting process will help avoid noise in the village or potential health issues, he said. “I like to preserve rights for other people and I think that the flip side of freedom is tolerance — tolerance for other people’s freedoms,” Raven said. “I love coming in here every two weeks, ’cause I get bored with Netflix.” Local musician Lex Grey understands her fellow residents’ concerns about a permitting process for keeping livestock, but some rules could be enacted, she said, such as requiring animals be kept in an enclosure. Grey offered to help come up with the regulations. “We live in close proximity to each other... respectfulness needs to prevail,” Grey said. “However, we are free. We are attracted to this community because we can make art, we can raise animals. “If I can have hens in Brooklyn and not have hens in Catskill, that would be kind of crazy,” she added The village attracts people from New York City because it offers a main street to walk and the ability to enjoy country life, Grey said after the meeting. “We shouldn’t remove those joys because of one or two disgruntled people or irresponsible people,” she said. The village can enact zoning regulations and rules for residents who live in close proximity to one another, which helps to maintain a quality of life, said village resident Deb Samuels, adding the village should place a limit on how many chickens a resident

Animal owners and their neighbors should be able to reach a compromise, Trustee Stanley Dushane said, adding enough time had been spent on the discussion. “Every time we go to do something in here, if you people don’t like it, you come to a meeting and complain to us and we’ve got to deal with the situation,” Dushane said. “I don’t see you people coming out here to deal with this, so we’re trying to work it out by saying we could do it. Give us a break.” Trustee Joseph Kozloski suggested bringing something forward in a few weeks because board members have to absorb a lot of information

Of the signatures filed by LaMagna, Liscum alleges that 2,684 are invalid for not meeting specific criteria. “I think the [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee] is behind these
ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Lawyers for Paul Manafort accused his longtime deputy Rick Gates of having four extramarital affairs and lying about them, a last attempt by the defense to undermine the credibility of the government’s star witness at the fraud trial of Manafort on Wednesday. Kevin Downing, the lead lawyer for Manafort, offered no evidence of either the affairs or Gates’ misrepresentation of them, and the judge, T.S. Ellis III, cut off the questioning before Gates could directly respond to the allegations. The exchange marked a dramatic conclusion to Gates’ testimony against his former boss, which spanned three days in federal court here in the trial of Manafort on bank and tax fraud charges brought by the special counsel. Gates provided hours of damning testimony against Manafort related to their decade of work together on behalf of Russia-aligned Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Gates accused Manafort of deliberately hiding income from the Ukraine work in foreign bank accounts to evade federal taxes, as well as personally directing the falsification of financial statements to obtain bank loans. The defense had worked to cast Gates, not Manafort, as the driving force behind the financial crimes and questioned his agreement with the special counsel to plead guilty to lying to investigators in exchange for his cooperation. The key elements of that effort were highlighting Gates’ admitted embezzlement of funds from Manafort’s companies as well his personal integrity, including an affair to which Gates admitted during his testimony Tuesday. On Wednesday morning, Greg D. Andres, the lead prosecutor for the special counsel’s office, led the testimony back to the affair in an effort to demonstrate that it did not bother Manafort. Gates testified that he and Manafort had discussed the relationship — which he said occurred more than a decade ago and lasted five months — and that Manafort not only did not fire him but also remained supportive of him. Additionally, Gates said that his wife also was aware of the affair, during which he lived with his paramour in an apartment in London. Gates testified that he
discussed the affair with the special counsel’s office during preparatory sessions for the trial, prompting Downing to ask whether Gates told investigators that he actually engaged in four extramarital affairs. When Andres objected, challenging the relevance of the question, Downing asserted that Gates may have lied about the number of affairs, which could invalidate his plea agreement, prompting Ellis to call the lawyers to the bench to discuss the matter. It was not immediately clear whether Downing was accusing Gates of lying to the special counsel’s team before the trial, or lying on the witness stand during the trial. Downing failed to explicitly ask Gates how many affairs he had, which may have limited the effectiveness of the effort to impeach Gates on that point. It was the second time in the final hour of Gates’ cross-examination that Downing and prosecutors deliberated with Ellis over their lines of questioning. During both intermissions, Manafort, just feet away, glared continuously at Gates in the witness box, his fists perched underneath his chin. Gates kept his gaze fixed on the floor in front of him. Manafort and Gates had been quite close, with Manafort, 69, serving as both a boss and mentor for Gates, 46. When Manafort was brought on to help run the Trump campaign, he brought on Gates. When Manafort was forced out amid allegations about his work in Ukraine, Gates continued working with the campaign, and then served as the executive director of Trump’s inaugural committee. Gates pleaded guilty in February to lying to federal authorities and conspiracy to commit fraud but has yet to be sentenced. Under guidelines that the judge is not required to follow, his plea would result in a prison sentence between four years nine months and six years. But as part of his testimony, Gates said prosecutors have agreed not to object if his defense attorney argues that he should receive probation. The most serious of the 18 felony charges against Manafort carry a maximum of 30 years in prison. The trial is the first by the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, who was assigned to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, possible coordination with Russia by the Trump campaign and any other crimes uncovered during his inquiry.

Lindo stepping down as AD at Columbia-Greene By Tim Martin Columbia-Greene Media
GREENPORT — ColumbiaGreene Community College Athletic Director Richanna Lindo has decided to head south. Lindo, who took over as director of athletics at the Greenport campus in 2015, has accepted a position as Associate Athletic Director with Santa Fe College, a Division I junior college located in Gainesville, Florida. Columbia-Greene President James Campion spoke highly of Lindo’s time at running the show in Greenport. “Richanna achieved many successes during her tenure at the college,” he said. “She guided the athletic program in a professional and thoughtful manner, always putting the best interests of the students first. Richy enhanced recruiting efforts, expanded summer camp offerings and widened the scope of our summer basketball leagues. We will miss Richy and wish her well as she moves to the next step in her career.” Lindo came to ColumbiaGreene in 2010 after earning her Bachelor’s Degree in sports management and business administration from Pfeiffer University in North Carolina, then completing her Masters at the United States Sports Academy with an emphasis on NCAA compliance. She began working in institutional research and community services before moving on to academic support at C-GCC. Lindo left the college

and I jumped on it, especially since it has my background and that was definitely the direction I wanted to go,” Lindo said. “It’s always been my end game for my career. I always wanted to be in Athletic Administration.” A year after accepting the
assistant AD job, Lindo took over as interim athletic director for Rickard, who left to take a job at Pratt Institute. One year after that the interim tag was removed. “Once Walter was leaving I pretty much tried to keep the office afloat and said ‘this
is where I want to be,’” Lindo stated. “I had that timeline for myself where I wanted to be in athletic administration. I either wanted to be an assistant AD or an AD by the time I’m 35 and I got there before that, so that was a blessing.” Once the position was hers,
Lindo hit the ground running. “It was definitely challenging at first, as it is with any transition, trying to fill Walter’s shoes because he did a great job and there were some things that I wanted to See LINDO B5
Jets consider trading QB Bridgewater
Hudson’s scoring drought continued in the second half. The Bluehawks didn’t score a point until the 10-minute mark of the stanza on a Shayna Coppersmith lay-up. FDR wasn’t exactly lighting up the scoreboard on the other end, with just a threepointer in the first 10:15 of the second half. Hudson closed the gap to 26-20 with 2:00 remaining in the contest, but FDR Gold held on to deal the Bluehawks their first loss of the summer league season. Coppersmith was Hudson’s top scorer with eight points. Deja Beauford had five, Jenya Robinson and Abbie Jepsen three apiece and Katie Jepsen and Jada Alert two each. Hudson wraps up summer league play with an 8-1 record. Catskill and Saugerties
Field Level Media Teddy Bridgewater is thrilled to be back on the football field after two years recovering from a knee injury in Minnesota, but his stay with the New York Jets could be brief. According to the New York Daily News, consideration is already being given by Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan to what an acceptable price might be should a team come calling for Bridgewater. The Jets signed Bridgewater to a one-year, $6 million contract before drafting Sam Darnold with the third overall pick in the 2018 draft. Maccagnan also re-signed incumbent starter Josh McCown. “I know that’s a question that comes up,” Maccagnan said. “Any time you have a number of players that you like at a position, it’s a natural thing (to think), ‘Hey, they may have a --’. I’m not saying we have a surplus ... but some teams carry two quarterbacks. (So) you have the ability to potentially (think), ‘Oh, hypothetically we could do that.’” Bridgewater admitted he hears percolating rumors around him but plans to focus on performance after more than 20 months of primarily managing rehab and recovery of his surgically reconstructed knee. “You control what you can control,” he said. “For me, it is coming to work every day and putting forth my best effort, leading my group up and down the field, throwing completions and getting us in and out of the right plays. That is what I look forward to right now. Everything else will take care of itself. Right now, I have to live in the moment and trust the process.” The Jets open the preseason tonight against the Atlanta Falcons. Maccagnan said performances in the preseason will definitely weigh into the

Hudson, Catskill girls fall short in summer league semis By Tim Martin Columbia-Greene Media
GREENPORT — Turnovers and missed shots spelled doom for Hudson in a 30-23 loss to FDR Gold in the Columbia-Greene Girls Summer Basketball League semifinals on Wednesday at ColumbiaGreene Community College. In the other semifinal, Saugerties White finished the game with a 14-0 run to defeat Catskill, 34-16. FDR Gold went on to win the championship with a 47-33 victory over Saugerties White. Hudson couldn’t buy a basket in the first 10 minutes of its game against FDR Gold. The Bluehawks had just one bucket in that time span and three free throws. Still, FDR Gold couldn’t pull away and Hudson was able to even it up at 11-11 with 3:13 left before

NASCAR THIS WEEK SPEED FREAKS A few questions we had to ask ourselves The seal is broken. How many more wins for Chase this year? GODSPEAK: Chase will grab at least one more at a short track or maybe Charlotte’s ROVAL. KEN’S CALL: I’ll say two more, and maybe the second will be at Homestead in November. But probably not. Who’s next to get his ﬁrst career win? GODSPEAK: Sign me up for Daniel Suarez. He is ﬁnding his pace and grabbing hold of this NASCAR Cup Series stuff. KEN’S CALL: I’ll go out on a limb and say it’ll be a rainshortened win. Let’s say Alex Bowman. But if the rain falls at precisely the right time, maybe Matt DiBenedetto.
FEUD OF THE WEEK ARIC ALMIROLA VS. RYAN BLANEY: On Lap 4, (of 90) Blaney made an aggressive pass on Almirola, knocking his No. 10 Ford off the course. Neither driver was a factor in the race. GODWIN KELLY’S TAKE: This was a family battle, since both drive cars for Ford. “I guess he hit the curb and wiped us out, so it’s disappointing,” said Almirola, who limped home 22nd.
GODWIN’S PICKS FOR MICHIGAN WINNER: Kevin Harvick REST OF TOP 5: Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Kurt Busch, Brad Keselowski FIRST ONE OUT: Joey Logano DARK HORSE: Kyle Larson DON’T BE SURPRISED IF: Order is restored and the “Big 3” gets back to business at Michigan.

MICHIGAN THREE THINGS TO WATCH
The Daytona Beach News-Journal’s Godwin Kelly & Ken Willis have covered NASCAR for nearly 60 years combined. godwin.kelly@ news-jrnl.com firstname.lastname@example.org
Q U E S T I O N S & AT T I T U D E Compelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers
Chase at the Glen? Who saw that coming? Those who follow the Elliott family’s racing history, perhaps. As has been mentioned (and mentioned, and mentioned …) the Elliotts of Dawsonville are practically synonymous with oval-track horsepower, but Chase’s daddy (Bill, of course) got the ﬁrst win of his Hall of Fame career at the Riverside (California) road course in 1983. Though he’d raced a part-time Cup schedule from 1977-82, that Riverside win came at the end of Bill’s ﬁrst full-time Cup season. He waited until Week 15 of 1984 for Win No. 2, then cemented his legend with the amazing ’85 campaign.
1. Sports-(NAS)car updates Sports-car regular Katherine Legge will make her NASCAR debut Saturday when the Brit wheels a car in the Xﬁnity Series race at Mid-Ohio. She has one IMSA win this season. Meanwhile, Christian Fittipaldi, who has raced all over the world and gave NASCAR a crack, will retire as a driver following Daytona’s Rolex 24 next January. The Brazilian made 16 Cup starts between the 20022003 seasons.
Will Chase wait long? 2. Back to business The party is over. The celebrations sparked by Chase Elliott nabbing his ﬁrst Cup Series victory are beginning to subside. Now it’s back to business, which means the “Big 3” is ready to control the next racing news cycle. The hard money will be on Kevin Harvick, since Michigan seems to favor Ford’s brand of horsepower. Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. are sure to be in the mix.
Sports-car ace Katherine Legge will make her NASCAR Xﬁnity Series debut Saturday at Mid-Ohio.
The consensus wants to suggest more wins will come, and soon. You never know, of course, but supporting that thinking is Chase’s quality runs just prior to Sunday’s win at the Glen. He’d led laps in three of the previous four races and was top-seven in the two races prior to Watkins Glen. It’s too early to think he might turns 2018’s “Big 3” into a “Big 4,” but stranger things have happened.

Lyle on players’ minds — and clothes — at PGA Championship
Field Level Media The tributes to Jarrod Lyle were evident across the grounds at Bellerive Country Club as the 100th PGA Championship got underway Thursday. The popular Australian golfer known a the “big fella” passed away Wednesday night at only 36 years old following a lengthy battle with leukemia. Rickie Fowler was “scripted” to wear dark blue during the first round, but switched to a yellow shirt in honor of Lyle, whose yellow bucket hat became his calling card. And numerous players attached yellow ribbons to their hats. “He’s front and center,” said Fowler. “It’s definitely tough.

Gonzalez wins for first time since May, Nats top Braves Field Level Media Michael A. Taylor took advantage of a surprise opportunity and Gio Gonzalez threw seven strong innings as the Washington Nationals defeated the Atlanta Braves 6-3 in a Thursday matinee at Nationals Park. Bryce Harper was in the original starting lineup for the Nationals. Manager Dave Martinez scratched the All-Star in favor of Taylor due to Harper experiencing lower right leg discomfort as a result of being hit by a pitch Wednesday. Taylor hit a homer in the sixth to stake Washington to a 4-1 lead. Gonzalez gave up one run on six hits and ended a six-game losing streak as the two teams split a four-game series. Gonzalez (7-8) last won on May 28 and failed to get the victory in 11 consecutive starts. Atlanta starter Anibal Sanchez did not last as long. Taylor hit a hard shot off the pitcher’s left calf, and even though Sanchez made the play and threw him out to end the top of the second inning, Sanchez did not return. Wes Parsons came on for Sanchez (left calf contusion) and made his major league debut in the third. Parsons (0-1) entered with a 1-0 lead thanks to a Nick Markakis homer off Gonzalez in the second. Markakis nearly added to the lead when he singled in the third but right fielder Adam Eaton threw out Freddie Freeman at home. Also in the third, Parsons gave up a one-out hit to Gonzalez (only his third hit this season) and another to Eaton before walking Trea Turner. Juan Soto walked and tied the game before Anthony Rendon’s sacrifice fly gave the Nationals a 2-1 lead. Parsons went five innings and allowed four runs on six hits. The Braves cut the lead to 4-2 when Ronald Acuna Jr. homered off Justin Miller in the eighth. Adam McCreery made his major league debut for Atlanta in that eighth inning and gave up RBI singles to Ryan Zimmerman and Mark Reynolds.
Dansby Swanson added a sacrifice fly for the Braves in the ninth. INDIANS 5, TWINS 4 Michael Brantley singled in Greg Allen with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Cleveland Indians their second consecutive walkoff victory, 5-4 over the visiting Minnesota Twins on Thursday afternoon at Progressive Field. Allen opened the inning with a single off reliever Addison Reed (1-6), stole second and went to third on groundout by Francisco Lindor – who had won Wednesday night’s contest with a three-run walk-off homer. Brantley then followed the game-winning single through a drawn-in infield into right field. It was 12th walk-off loss for Minnesota, the most for the Twins since their 1987 World Series winning squad. Lindor had two hits – his American League leading 47th multi-hit game – and drove in three runs and Yonder Alonso homered for Cleveland, which increased its lead to 11 games over Minnesota in the AL Central. Jason Kipnis walked three times and scored two runs for the Indians who improved to 21-6 at home against AL Central opponents. Andrew Miller (2-3) picked up the win in relief with a hitless ninth inning. Jorge Polanco hit a three-run homer to lead Minnesota. Alonso started a three-run second inning for the Indians with a leadoff 400-foot homer to right off Jose Berrios, his 20th of the season as Cleveland became the first team in the major leagues this season to have four players with 20 or more home runs. Alonso joined Jose Ramirez (33), Lindor (29) and Edwin Encarnacion (25) in the 20-homer club. Melky Cabrera and Kipnis followed Alonso’s blast with walks and were sacrificed to second and third by catcher Roberto Perez. After Allen struck out, Lindor lined a sharp single to right to drive in Cabrera and Kipnis.
The Indians made it 4-0 in the fourth on Lindor’s AL-leading 38th double of the season that drove in Kipnis, who had walked. The Twins cut it to 4-1 in the fifth when Max Kepler led off with a double to center, advanced to third on a flyout by Ehire Adrianza and scored on a sacrifice fly by Jake Cave. Polanco then tied it an inning later with his first homer of the year, a three-run shot into the front row in right-center off starter Corey Kluber, driving in Bobby Wilson and Eddie Rosario who had both singled earlier. Kluber allowed four runs and seven hits over seven innings. He struck out seven and walked none. Berrios was touched up for four runs and four hits. He walked six and fanned five.

Teen girl arrested in burglary of Nebraska coach’s house The Sports Xchange A 17-year-old girl was arrested in connection with a burglary at the home of Nebraska football coach Scott Frost. The teenager was found to be in possession of an Oregon Ducks shoe that was among the items stolen from Frost’s home last month, the Lincoln Journal-Star reported Thursday. Lincoln police told the
newspaper that there come be arrests to come. About $50,000 worth of memorabilia, including shoes, football helmets and artwork, were taken in the July 2i burglary of Frost’s unoccupied home in Lincoln. Initial reports listed 14 championship rings among the stolen items, but those were later found. After coaching UCF to an undefeated season in 2017,
the 43-year-old Frost returned to his alma mater in December to become the Cornhuskers’ head coach. He spent seven years as an assistant coach at Oregon before taking over at UCF two years ago. Frost and his wife have an 8-month-old son, but the family has not yet moved into the home located in northwest Lincoln. JERRY LAI/USA TODAY

I had to dive right in there and still make sure I was taking care of my athletes on this end. “One of the pet projects that I wanted to do is on the regional level. They kept talking about how they needed nominations for our athletes because they kept getting the same schools and nobody is really nominating. So I really wanted to focus on showcasing my athletes. We’re all busy, but it never really got done before, so that’s
Field Level Media Nashville Predators general manager David Poile is one of five people elected for enshrinement in the United States Hockey Hall of Fame, USA Hockey announced Thursday. Also selected were former college hockey coach Gordon “Red” Berenson, former women’s national team captain Natalie Darwitz, pioneer Leland “Hago” Harrington and referee Paul Stewart. “This class has had an enormously positive impact on hockey in our country,” USA Hockey president Jim Smith said in a press release. “Their contributions have helped shape and advance our sport over many decades, and we look forward to formally enshrining each of the
five honorees in December.” The class will be inducted on Dec. 12 at Nashville, Tenn. Poile has spent 36 seasons as an NHL general manager, the last 21 with Nashville after 15 with the Washington Capitals. He is the all-time leader in wins by a GM with 1,333. Poile also served as GM of the 2014 U.S. Olympic men’s team. Berenson guided Michigan to an 848-426-92 record and 11 Frozen Four appearances during 33 seasons as the school’s coach. The Wolverines made a record 22 straight playoff appearances (19912012) during his tenure. Darwitz won three Olympic gold medals (silver in 2002, bronze in 2006 and silver in 2010) and was team captain from 2007-10. She
played collegiately at Minnesota and holds the school single-season record of 114 points in 2004-05 and ranks third all time with 246 career points. Harrington was the first American-developed player to score a hat trick in an NHL game, turning the trick in 1926 for the Boston Bruins. He scored nine total NHL goals in 66 games and later became a coach. Harrington was 54 when he died on July 1, 1959. Stewart officiated 1,010 regular-season games, 49 playoff contests and two AllStar Games. He defeated colon cancer in 1998 to return to the ice and played in 21 NHL games for the Quebec Nordiques in 1979-80 prior to become an official.
QB quandary. “We like a lot of things that Teddy’s done this offseason,” Maccagnan said. “We obviously know Josh from having him last
year and what he brings to the table. But I would say from that standpoint, it’s very early. We kind of want to see how these guys still grow and develop.”
the Sawyers taking a 14-7 lead by the end of the first half. Catskill was down 20-12 in the second half, but backto-back baskets by Janay Brantley and Aaliyah Shook
brought the Cats to within 20-16 with 12:55 left in regulation. That would be the final scoring for the Cats, however, as Saugerties scored the game’s final 14 points to ice
the victory. Christie Collins topped Saugerties White with nine points. Molly Daggett had five points, Karissa Adickes and Aaliyah Feeney four each, Jac
Murphy and Skylar France three apiece and Hillary Mulford, Elise Peters and Julia Quinlan two each. Mary Kate Glass led Catskill with five points. Hannah
Konsul added four, Brantley had three and Ashley Shook and Aaliyah Shook two apiece. Catskill finishes with a 4-4 record in the summer league.
what I wanted to do, and it just so happens we have a great softball program, the basketball program — Tanisha Edge just did a great thing for us. It was nice that they got their shine, too. I wanted to make sure that we showcase the talent that we have here.” There were a few bumps in the road along the way for Lindo, most notably the housing issue for student-athletes. “The biggest challenge was having to recruit and then having nowhere to put those outof-the-area students,” Lindo said. “Housing is a big factor, so we can’t necessarily compete with those community colleges that do have dorms, but at the same time we still have the quality of our programs and
that was enough to keep a lot of our local kids here.” Lindo is proud of the fact that many of the athletes that came to Columbia-Greene were good students, as well. “A lot of the athletes that come through here did great academically in high school and they’re great academically here,” she said. “I think last year we were one of two baseball teams in New York that were All-Academic honorable mention. This year we had 6-8 make All-Academic teams, whether it was national or regional and they’re great players. We have people come in where getting a degree wasn’t necessarily their top focus, but sports got them here and got them to graduate.” One of the highlights of her
time at C-GCC was the friendships she formed, not only with colleagues at the college, but throughout the region. “Working with all of the Region III directors, they’ve been a tremendous help, especially during the transition and just overall. They’re great people and it was a joy to work with them, collaborating,” Lindo said. “They weren’t just focused on just their schools, it was bettering our entire region and since we’re a part of that, we also benefit from that and it was good having nice compeititon because Region III produces a lot of national champions and runners-up, regardless of what sport it is. The athletes here get that exposure to high-quality competition and a lot of regions
don’t have that.” Lindo feels her time at CGCC has set her up well for the future. “Because the department is so small, we’ve had to wear many different hats, so I’ve had to do media stuff, I’ve had to do paperwork, I’ve had to wash gym floors. It’s all part of the job, so I’m comfortable doing all of these different little things and I think that will help me where I’m going. “A lot of stuff I did here I’ll be transitioning to do there. A lot my family is also in Florida, so that was another thing that appealed to me. Instead of being a plane ride away, I’m going to be two hours away. As close a family as we are, we all hang out together and I’ve missed that
the past few years. Since this opportunity arose I couldn’t pass it up.” Lindo is excited for her new challenge and is eager to get started, but will always have a place in her heart for C-GCC. “I am grateful to ColumbiaGreene because this is where I got my start,” she said. “They are the ones that gave me the chance to do what I went to school for, to prove what I could do. I’ll still be rooting for the Twins no matter where I am.” Current assistant athletic director, Nick Dyer, will be stepping in as the acting athletic director while C-GCC conducts a search for a qualified applicant to assume the role left by Lindo.

Wings, beer ... bets? Buffalo Wild Wings’ action plan
SHANNA LOCKWOOD/USA TODAY
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson (4) looks to pass during minicamp at the Houston Methodist Training Center.
Four former fantasy football studs who should drop off in 2018 By Des Bieler
The Washington Post
There are a few rules to live by in fantasy football, such as, never take a kicker before the final round. Here’s another important rule: Don’t assume that whatever happened last year will happen again this year. One of the challenges in fantasy football is that the real-life sport on which it’s based equates to a minefield of small sample sizes. Even an entire season consists of just 16 games - less than a fifth of what NBA and NHL players are given to prove their worth, never mind baseball’s marathon slog - and, of course, injuries limit many players to fewer than that, not to mention the annual Week 17 second-string wackiness. With that in mind, here are a few players whose 2017 performances are unlikely to be replicated, particularly in the often fickle area of touchdowns. In these four cases, former studs may appear somewhat less studly than they did in 2017. DESHAUN WATSON, QB, TEXANS
Watson streaked like a comet across the NFL firmament, racking up in just five games (once he got his feet wet in his first two appearances) a whopping 1,472 passing yards and 18 TDs, with an extra 186 rushing yards and another score. If he could do that as a rookie, before tearing a knee ligament, imagine what he could do in a full season, right? Well, maybe, but let’s remember that if an NFL season represents a small sample size, five games is darn near microscopic. More importantly, Watson posted a passing TD rate of 9.3 percent, which not only led the NFL by a mile (Carson Wentz was next at 7.5, and Aaron Rodgers followed at 6.7), but tied for the 12th-highest mark in NFL history among QBs with at least 200 attempts. In fact, since 1976, only once has any other QB - Peyton Manning (9.9), in 2004 - notched a TD percentage of 9.0 or greater on at least 200 attempts. So that sucker is coming down for Watson, and the comet may just crash to Earth. OJ HOWARD, TE, BUCCANEERS He did a heck of a lot with
relatively little as a rookie, turning just 39 targets into 26 catches for 432 yards and six TDs. Howard was able to accomplish that by posting by far the highest yards per target of any TE with a minimum of 30 targets. His mark of 11.08 that was well ahead of secondplace Rob Gronkowski’s 10.32, and Howard also had the most yards per reception (16.62). Howard likely won’t be repeating those feats, which were aided by two long TDs on which he was as wide open as you’ll ever see an NFL player. Think opposing defensive coordinators might be looking for this play now? ALVIN KAMARA, RB, SAINTS There’s really not a ton to say here, except that averaging 6.1 yards per carry is patently unsustainable, as is scoring 13 TDs on 201 touches for a rate of 6.4 percent, and averaging 10.2 yards per reception might be hard to keep up, as well. Per Scott Barrett of Pro Football Focus, out of 2,173 times since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger that an RB has had at least 100 carries in a season, Kamara’s 2017 campaign ranked first in
fantasy points per touch and second in yards per touch. Of course, Kamara almost certainly will get more touches this season, which could offset a loss in efficiency and help him return his current firstround value. Just please don’t expect what we saw last year. JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER, WR, STEELERS As with Howard, SmithSchuster didn’t let his rookie status prevent him from leading everyone at his position in yards per target (min. 30 targets). His mark of 11.61 was notably better than even that of big-play machine Tyreek Hill (11.27), and it was the ninth-best figure for any WR over the past 10 seasons. As with Kamara, SmithSchuster should see the ball more this season, but with another talented rookie WR on hand in James Washington and TE Vance McDonald set for a bigger role, it may not be a lot more. There’s still reason to be excited, but reasonable expectations of regression tell us to temper it just a tad.
Field Level Media National chicken wing and sports bar chain Buffalo Wild Wings, with locations in all 50 states, is investing in sports betting opportunities in hopes of serving up wings, beer and some gambling action to customers in the near future. “As the largest sports bar in America, we believe Buffalo Wild Wings is uniquely positioned to leverage sports gaming to enhance the restaurant experience for our guests,” a Buffalo Wild Wings spokesperson told ESPN. “We are actively exploring opportunities, including potential partners, as we evaluate the next steps for our brand.” New Jersey was the first state to open sportsbooks outside of Nevada, and Caesars Entertainment is opening in that state as well as Mississippi. Ohio and Indiana are among other states where Buffalo Wild Wings has strong business and sports betting is considered to be just around the corner. DraftKings Sportsbook, which offers a full-scale mobile sports-betting platform, began operating in New Jersey this week. State-by-state regulations could broaden the market for mobile platforms that would compete directly with Buffalo Wild Wings and other destination betting sites. Delaware opened windows for widespread sports betting at Delaware Park and other casinos and took in $8 million in wagers in the first month, the state reported last week.
BRADY, PATRIOTS CLOSE TO CONTRACT ADJUSTMENT Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are near an incentive-laden adjustment to his 2018 contract that lifts the five-time Super Bowl champion’s compensation toward current market value at the quarterback position. Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons ($30 million annually) and Kirk Cousins of the Vikings ($28M annual average value) raised the bar for
quarterback salaries in the offseason. Brady, who did not participate in offseason workouts but attended mandatory minicamp in Foxborough, Mass., has not commented on his contract. The Athletic and ESPN reported Brady expected his pending contract adjustment to be in place before Week 1 of the regular season. Brady’s current annual average value of $20,500,000 could be increased by more than $5 million with incentives, ESPN’s Adam Schefter said Thursday. Brady, 41, signed a twoyear, $41 million contract prior to last season. Ten other quarterbacks have a higher salary cap value than Brady, who is slated to earn $15 million in 2018.
RANDY MOSS RECEIVING HATE MAIL FOR HOF TIE Newly inducted Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss said hundreds of pieces of hate mail greeted him upon his return from Canton, Ohio, this week. Moss wore a tie listing the names of a dozen black men and women killed by police and was congratulated by dozens of NFL and NBA players for the statement. But Moss told The Undefeated that “150 to 200 messages” equating to hate mail also found its way to him. “The black community praised me and thanked me for shedding light on AfricanAmericans dying,” Moss told The Undefeated. “Then on the flip side, you’ve got sites where people are slamming me, saying, ‘Hey, (racial epithet), stay in your place.’ “All of this hate mail I’m getting for wearing a tie and talking about the truth. But I can handle it because I’ve been dealing with racism my whole life.” Moss said he decided in February to make the statement on stage in Canton during his induction ceremony speech. The point, said Moss, was to attempt to unite, not divide.
This forgotten video game helped pave the way for Madden NFL By Rick Maese The Washington Post
This week’s release of Madden NFL marks the 30th anniversary of the most popular sports video game of all time. While it has generated more than $4 billion in revenue and inspired three decades’ worth of gamers and football fans, some of Madden’s humble roots can be traced to a startup company working out of a house in Bethesda, Maryland, and an early football game that featured slow-moving dots in lieu of animated players. Before there was Madden, there was a game called Gridiron!, unremarkable for its stone-age graphics but ahead of its time for the physics and coding that laid the technical groundwork for the sports titles to follow. It was the first game created by Bethesda Softworks, now an industry giant, and the game was so advanced at the time that Electronic Arts (EA) originally contracted with the small outfit to help work on an early version of Madden. A legal battle eventually ensued, the two companies went their separate ways and 30 years later, Gridiron! is a largely forgotten part of Madden’s history, a footnote to one of the most famous video games ever created. “While we did not end up completing the game for legal reasons, the work we did under contract with EA, using Gridiron’s underlying engine and game-system technology, heavily influenced
the early Madden series and paved the way for what it is today,” Christopher Weaver, the Bethesda Softworks founder, explained in the book “Gamers at Work: Stories Behind the Games People Play.” Weaver was working with an electrical engineer named Ed Fletcher on laser discbased video games. After the industry crashed in 1984, Weaver and Fletcher were waiting for the next laserdisc contract to come along when they started fiddling with the new Commodore Amiga computer. Fletcher was a big football fan, so they agreed to work on a football game. The titles already on the market at the time largely ran on patterns and predetermined outcomes based on play-calls. “As someone who did not know very much about football but had a background in physics, I found that approach very boring,” Weaver explained to The Washington Post in an email. Fletcher, too, found existing football video games to be lacking, a far cry from mimicking the movements, decisions and outcomes of an actual football game. “My approach to creating games was that if you try and model reality as much as possible, you’re going to give the user a better experience,” Fletcher said in an interview, “because they’re going to feel like they’re really there and they’re really experiencing it. And so my attitude was always, ‘Let’s make these guys behave as realistically as possible.’ I
wanted it to feel like real football.” Fletcher started creating a game where every player on the screen wasn’t necessarily equal, though all were dots, scurrying across a green rectangle. Some were stronger and some faster, their attributes all based on statistics. They could bounce off defenders, break tackles and power through defenders. While the underlying physics and artificial intelligence was more complex than anything on the market, visually the game was beyond rudimentary. “We had no animator, no artist,” Fletcher said. Working out of Weaver’s home, Fletcher made the game in about nine months’ time. Weaver said they printed a few hundred copies and packaged them in plastic bags as a test. It hit the market in 1986 for Commodore 64, Amiga and Atari ST computers, and despite the simple graphics, Gridiron! immediately caught the eye of serious gamers - and other developers. “The almost instant reaction to Gridiron! surprised us,” Weaver said. “The games were gone within a week of distribution. There were competing products from much larger companies, but Gridiron! had obviously hit a sweet spot among computer football devotees. . . . In short order we were the leaders in computer football. That was the reason EA asked us to help them create what came to be known as John Madden Football.” EA had been tinkering with
its own football game and had been working with John Madden, the former coach turned broadcaster, since 1984. Madden famously wanted the game to feel as much like real football as possible with 11 players on each side and a full playbook at the gamer’s disposal. “I think they recognized that as a software designer, I wanted the same thing that they did with Madden: to make it as realistic as possible in terms the terms of play,” Fletcher said. The two sides signed a contract. Bethesda Softworks agreed to help build John Madden Football, as the game was known at the time, and while the new game was in development, EA was to help market and distribute the Gridiron! title. “Rather than compete, they wanted to absorb,” Weaver said. “We just did not fully realize their plan at the time.” Weaver and Fletcher met in-person with Madden to pick his brain and understand his vision for the game, a highlight for Fletcher, the football fan, during the two companies’ brief partnership. “As someone who was not a professional football fan,” Weaver said, “I personally found Madden one of the most boring people I have ever met in my life.” Before long, Bethesda Softworks began to sense that EA was not promoting and distributing the Gridiron! game. The Maryland company stopped working on Madden
and filed a $7.3 million lawsuit, claiming EA was incorporating major portions of the coding into Madden while stifling Gridiron! distribution. The two sides eventually reached an undisclosed settlement, but development of John Madden Football was slowed. It wasn’t released until June 1988, initially only available for the Apple II computer. While Bethesda Softworks never turned over its code, the Gridiron! elements and gameplay were apparently evident in the final Madden product. “The influence of physicsbased play systems was dramatic,” Weaver said. “All our competitors effectively copied it. But it helped the industry move forward so, in hindsight, it was a good thing.” In the long run, the Madden contract was not a lucrative one for Bethesda Softworks, though it could have been. Weaver said EA initially offered royalties for a lower build price. He rejected the offer and instead negotiated a higher development fee upfront. “After thinking it over, I decided we would be better off taking the money,” he said. “After all, we were the ‘world leader’ in football games for that time, and EA was using our technology. So, I saw little upside. I like to imagine I learned a lot from that fateful decision as it definitely ranks as one of the worst ones I ever made. Luckily, the company survived that poor decision.” Madden didn’t really take off until its 1990 release for
Sega Genesis, and it quickly became the most prominent football title on the video game market. It had reportedly sold more than 120 million copies when the franchise turned 25 in 2013. EA did not respond to an email seeking an updated total. After the break with EA, Bethesda Softworks, immediately began working on Wayne Gretzky Hockey, applying many of the same principles and some of the coding. Fletcher consulted with the Washington Capitals and received weekly guidance from Hall of Fame defenseman Larry Murphy to make the game as realistic as possible. The game was released in 1988 and was a critical and commercial hit. The company also made basketball (NCAA Road to the Final Four) and auto racing (BurnOut) titles, using the same basic Gridiron! approach. Bethesda Softworks became an industry force with the release of The Elder Scrolls in 1994. Weaver stayed with the company until 2002 and, despite a nasty split, is reportedly still a leading shareholder of ZeniMax, the parent company for Bethesda Softworks. Fletcher, now working for BreakAway Games, still has a couple copies of Gridiron! discs in his Hunt Valley, Maryland, office. It’s a reminder of his start in the video game business but also the roots for the industry’s most popular sports title. “It was really interesting and fun time,” he said.

One-way friendship ends, but feelings of guilt remain My “friend” from childhood, “Camille,” has never had my back. I have done the heavy lifting in our friendship our whole lives. While I was on vacation two years ago, she was diagnosed with cancer. I came home imDEAR ABBY mediately and drove to the hospital at 1 a.m. to be by her side. I’ve always been by Camille’s side for everything, even though she hasn’t been there for me. I told her that several times, to no avail. I went to EVERY chemo and doctor appointment, and was there every day to rub her feet to make her feel better. I threw her a party for 100 people to “kick cancer’s butt,” took her on a vacation — it goes on and on. I ended the one-sided friendship last year. My problem is, I feel guilty for doing it. I feel I left her with cancer. But I also feel that because someone is sick doesn’t give them the right to be abusive or inconsiderate. Camille hasn’t tried to contact me, either. In fact, she has told others that she will never speak to me again. I bent over backward for her, but if some other person sent a card, she would make a big deal out of it. I’m deeply hurt and don’t know how to move on. Help! Wounded On The East Coast
One way to stop feeling guilty and get on with your life would be to acknowledge in your head AND your heart that the relationship with Camille was not a healthy one for YOU. In fact, from the way you have described it, it was more like a bad habit.
Bad habits can be difficult to break, but many people have been able to accomplish it by replacing a bad habit with a good one. Example: Instead of feeling guilty for not rubbing Camille’s feet, consider getting a pedicure for yourself. My siblings and I, all born in the ‘50s in a small town, have fond memories of our childhood. After our mother died in 1989, our father married “Sylvia,” a new arrival in town. They lived together in our childhood home until his death in 2016. We “kids” wanted to honor our parents and our fond childhood memories. We endowed a plaque for the town park dedicated to their memory and noting they had raised a family in that community. Sylvia is now grievously offended and furious that she was not included. Abby, Sylvia came on the scene long after we were raised and gone. She’s not our parent and played no part in the memories we wanted to honor. Although Sylvia was a good wife to our dad, she did her best to erase all traces of our mother from Dad’s memory and from his home. Were we wrong? She has rebuffed our attempts to explain our benign motivations. Confused In Pennsylvania You weren’t wrong, but it would have been better had you discussed your plans for the plaque with Sylvia before donating it. That way, you would have been able to explain to her the reason why she wouldn’t be on it. She may still be grieving the loss of your father, so try to understand her feelings.
Gallstones are the biggest reason for gallbladder removal My husband’s doctor is telling him to have his gallbladder removed because sometimes he has pain in his right side. They did all kind of tests, but he has pain when he drives long hours or when he eats salads, not fried or fatty foods. Can you tell me more about the TO YOUR surgery, and what it might be GOOD HEALTH like for him after the surgery?
However, it takes time for the system to get adjusted to not having a gallbladder, and only 60 percent of people are completely back to normal after three months. A few people have persistent symptoms for years. Thus, it’s wise to be as sure as possible that symptoms are due to gallbladder disease before undergoing surgery.
Almost every time a gallbladder needs to be removed, it is because of gallstones. It isn’t always clear whether the symptoms people have are due to the gallstones that are found on imaging studies, such as CT or ultrasound, but there are some clues to help decide whether a gallbladder that contains stones needs to be removed. The classic symptoms are pain in the right upper abdomen, especially after eating a fatty meal, such as fried food. Sometimes gallbladder pain is not food-associated. Symptoms at nighttime are not uncommon. Nausea, bloating, lower chest pain, belching and burning pain are all well-described with gallbladder disease, and the proof comes when surgery relieves the symptoms. Unfortunately, doctors aren’t always right. Occasionally a person’s gallbladder is removed, and it doesn’t help the symptoms at all. Most people do very well after gallbladder surgery. The liver itself takes over the job of storing bile, in the ducts of the liver, and bile is released into the intestines appropriately after eating.
I’m 85 years old. I have numbness in my hands — sometimes the right, sometimes the left; sometimes both hands or not at all. It lasts only a while. My doctor feels that it’s a pinched nerve in my neck. Can you give me any advice?
DR. KEITH ROACH
A pinched nerve in the neck becomes more prevalent as people age. The nerve can be compressed by bony structures in people with osteoarthritis in the neck (this is spinal stenosis), or by disk material in someone with a herniated disk. Having symptoms on both sides is less common than having symptoms consistently on one side only. A careful physical exam can give clues that this is the case, but an MRI or other imaging study is the best way to be sure of the diagnosis. Hand numbness also may be caused by the nerve being “pinched” in other locations: in the carpal tunnel in the wrist or in the cubital tunnel in the elbow. An EMG test can help sort out where this is coming from. It’s certainly possible to have carpal tunnel syndrome on both sides.
Hagar the Horrible
Horoscope By Stella Wilder Born today, you are creative, capable and always on the lookout for a new opportunity. Though you succeed more often than not, the fact is that you harbor certain doubts about your abilities, and you do not always embark on a new endeavor with the confidence that you should, given your overall capacity for accomplishment. What is it that keeps you from recognizing your talents and skills? When young, you may have grown up in the shadow of someone whom you very much admired and looked up to, and that may have instilled in you the belief that he or she was the one to soar to great heights. Still, there is no excuse for maintaining such a belief once you begin to enjoy success. You tend to be soft-spoken and tolerant, and you consider all manner of perspectives and opinions to be just as valid as yours. You are capable of arguing both sides of an issue with a marked level of expertise, for you are not just opinionated, but knowledgeable about many key issues in life. Also born on this date are: Antonio Banderas, actor; Suzanne Collins, author; Angie Harmon, actress; Herbert Hoover, U.S. president; Eddie Fisher, singer; Jack Haley, actor; Rosanna Arquette, actress; Norma Shearer, actress; Andrew Sullivan, author; Ian Anderson, singer and songwriter.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Negotiations with a Leo native aren’t likely to go as planned, but you can keep up with anyone who is trying to outmaneuver you at this time. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — You’re likely to uncover an old friend’s sneaky behavior today — and as a result you’re going to have to make a difficult decision.
