ALBANY — Local environmental experts voiced their concerns Monday about a proposed ash landfill for a former quarry in Catskill. Riverkeeper President Paul Gallay, former EPA Regional Administrator Judith Enck and Catskill-based geologist Paul Rubin led the press conference that took place at 11 a.m. in the Legislative Office Building on State Street. The speakers and assembled community members said they are worried about the environmental impact of an ash landfill proposed by Wheelabrator

“This is a serious environmental threat to the Hudson Valley and the next generation. We know that incinerator ash falls in the toxic range of heavy metals and dioxin.” — FORMER EPA REGIONAL ADMINISTRATOR JUDITH ENCK

Wheelabrator is interested in purchasing 158 acres on Route 9W in Smith’s Landing, including a former

Wheelabrator has no plans to burn waste in Catskill. In addition to working in the environmental field for more than 30 years, Enck also has a personal connection to the issue, she said. “I grew up in Catskill,” she said. Local residents sought Enck’s assistance in February. “Virtually no one knew about it even though they started filing paper work with DEC over two years ago,” Enck said.

HUDSON — Through snow, rain, 50-mph winds and freezing temperatures, Vietnam War veteran Frank Romeo has been steadfastly carrying out his mission to walk 800 miles across the state to raise awareness for fellow veterans with invisible battle scars.

Staying in homeless shelters at night and walking the roads by day, Romeo, who just turned 70, is raising awareness for post-traumatic stress disorder and homeless veterans. Romeo, who served as an infantryman in the U.S. Army in Vietnam and Cambodia in 1969, was shot seven times and separated from his unit. The

nightmares of those events haunt him 50 years later. Romeo said he is one of the first Vietnam veterans to be diagnosed with PTSD after the war. “The stigma surrounding mental illness in this country is not helping our veterans,” Romeo said. “They are not coming forward. When I speak, I introduce myself as having mental illness

and I suffer from PTSD. We need people to say these words. There is nothing to be ashamed of. That’s my goal.” An average of 20 veterans die from suicide each day, according to the most recent report published by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in See VETERAN A8

Study of teacher salaries raises eyebrows By Melanie Lekocevic Columbia-Greene Media

A survey of median annual teacher salaries statewide has been released, including a comparison of median annual salaries for workers in other fields with both a bachelor’s and graduate degree. The study was conducted by the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government, a public policy think tank, and compares median salaries by school district. Only public schools are included in the survey; no private schools were studied. New York City school districts were also omitted, according to the institute.

The Twin Counties school district with the highest median salary for its teachers is the Hudson City School District, where teachers earned

a median annual salary of $77,406. Workers in Columbia County in other fields with a bachelor’s degree earned a median salary of $48,407,

while those with a master’s degree earned $65,340, according to the study. The second-highest paid district in Columbia County

is Germantown, where teachers earned a median salary of $71,642, and Kinderhook was third, at $69,603. Anna Klc, of Hudson, was surprised to learn how much teachers earn, particularly in Hudson. “You’ve got to be kidding me,” Klc said. “No wonder our school taxes are so high. I am shocked, absolutely shocked. This is a ridiculously high salary for what they do, because on top of that, they have teachers’ aides, they have all kinds of support. This is ridiculously high.” The Columbia County district with the lowest median See SALARIES A8

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts unveiled a public lands proposal on Monday, thrusting land-use issues and the environment into the spotlight as she continues to set the pace on policy in a crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates. Warren’s plan, which she outlined in a post on Medium before trips to Colorado and Utah this week, promises an executive order that would prohibit new leases for fossil fuel drilling offshore and on public lands, calls for the creation of “a 21st century Civilian Conservation Corps” staffed by 10,000 young people and seeks to reduce inaccessible public acreage by 50 percent. It also aims to undo some of the environmental actions undertaken by the Trump administration, which she said amounted to “selling off our public lands to the oil, gas and coal industries for pennies on the dollar,” accelerating a “climate crisis” in the process. Under the plan, Warren said she would reinstate Obamaera air and water protections and wield the Antiquities Act, a 1906 law, to restore national monuments that President Donald Trump shrank. “America’s public lands are one of our greatest treasures,” she wrote in the Medium post. “But today, those lands are un-

der threat.” “We must not allow corporations to pillage our public lands and leave taxpayers to clean up the mess,” she said. “All of us — local communities and tribes, hunters and anglers, ranchers and weekend backpackers — must work together to manage and protect our shared heritage.” The land-use plan is ‘the latest in a series of proposals from Warren, who has tried to stand out in a wide-open Democratic field by matching her rhetoric of structural

change with detailed policy platforms. Last week, before a trip to New Hampshire, Warren announced a new corporate tax plan targeting America’s wealthiest corporations. During a previous trip through the South, Warren highlighted her plan to restore affordable housing, particularly in communities previously burdened by government discrimination. She has also outlined plans that would provide universal child care, impose a new

annual tax on the country’s wealthiest families and break up the biggest tech companies. She has advocated getting rid of the Electoral College, removing Confederate statues and creating a national commission to study reparations for black Americans. A former Harvard law professor, Warren has not shied away from getting into the weeds of the policies she proposes and has offered robust levels of detail about her ideas compared with many of her competitors. In her 1,600-word post about public lands, she set a goal of generating 10% of the county’s electricity from renewable sources offshore or on public lands and argued for financial investment in environmental preservation. Specifically, she called for full funding of public land management agencies in order to eliminate their maintenance and infrastructure backlog, and for mandatory spending of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which was created by Congress in the 1960s to safeguard natural areas. Warren said she would increase the AmeriCorps budget to pay for her civilian conservation corps. And she said it was “long past time” to make entry into national parks free. “America’s public lands belong to all of us,” she wrote. “We should start acting like it.”

Boxed in by Trump, Kim Jong Un buys time By Youkyung Lee and Jon Herskovitz Bloomberg

Kim Jong Un may not be giving up on Donald Trump, but he’s ready to test the president’s patience. That was Kim’s message through a whirlwind series of events in the run up to Monday’s holiday marking his late grandfather Kim Il Sung’s birth. In his most extensive comments so far on his failed February summit with Trump, Kim expressed a willingness to meet again, but only if the U.S. accepted different terms in negotiations over his nuclear weapons. Here’s what we learned about Kim’s strategy: n 1. Kim thinks he can wait Trump out. Kim has faced the same choice for more than a year: Talk with Trump or force a crisis by resuming weapons tests. After failing to get sanctions relief at the U.S.-North Korea summit in Hanoi, he’s picked another option: Wait. Kim said in an address to the rubber-stamp Supreme People’s Assembly that he would “wait for a bold decision from the U.S. with patience till the end of this year,” according to the official Korean Central News Agency. Besides avoiding blame for scuttling talks, it potentially puts the issue back in the spotlight just as Trump prepares to run for re-election in 2020. “He’s not going to be the first one to walk away from diplomacy,” said Duyeon Kim, an adjunct senior fellow in Seoul for the Center for a New American Society. “He has put the ball in Washington’s court and is seeking it to be more flexible.” n 2. Kim really wants Trump to ease sanctions. Kim Jong Un was ready to grant Trump praise -- mentioning him by name and noting they “still maintain good relations.” But he’s clearly frustrated with the president’s sup-

port for maintaining sanctions, bemoaning the U.S.’s “completely unrealizable methods” and what he said in his speech to parliament was a lack of “definite orientation or methodology” at the Hanoi summit. “By that sort of thinking, the United States will not be able to move us one iota nor get what it wants at all, even if it sits with us a hundred times, a thousand times,” Kim said. The North Korean leader repeatedly complained about “sanctions by the hostile forces” and cited a recent U.S. anti-ballistic missile as evidence of lingering animosity in Washington. “Kim is paying a lot of attention to the sanctions and that could mean that the sanctions are really biting,” said Chun Yungwoo, South Korea’s former chief envoy to international nuclear negotiations with North Korea. “But the North Koreans are not going to surrender to the terms and conditions that President Trump has laid out up to this point.” -n 3. Kim isn’t preparing North Koreans for disarmament. “Denuclearization” wasn’t among the more than 2,800 words in the English version of the state media report on Kim’s speech. Rather he credited the country’s “rapidly developing nuclear armed forces” with making the U.S. concerned about its own safety and bringing it to the negotiating table. While the remarks could be viewed as an attempt to maintain morale among his domestic audience, they’re not the sort of thing Kim would say if he was preparing the country to give up its arsenal. In fact, he alluded to his previous order to mass produce nuclear weapons, saying “we should hold fast to the principle of self-reliant defense and keep building up the country’s defense capability.” The remark underscores the

main risk for the U.S. in letting Kim run out the clock. It gives North Korea more time to perfect the technology needed to mount a nuclear warhead on a missile and deliver it to a target in the U.S. On Sunday, Kim bolstered his support in the military by promoting dozens of generals ahead of his grandfather’s birthday. n 4. Kim is girding for a slog under sanctions. Waiting isn’t without danger for Kim, too, whose economy is being squeezed by international sanctions that restrict everything from how much energy North Korea can import to its purchase of personal computers. That economic hardship is a potential source of dissent against his regime’s about 70-year rule. Nonetheless, Kim has in recent days repeatedly appealed to the country to “strike a blow” against its enemies by resisting the blockade. “Whatever wind may blow and whatever challenges and difficulties may lie ahead, our republic will, in the future, too, make no concession or compromise over the issues concerning the fundamental interests of our state and people,” Kim said. At the same time, he made changes in leadership personnel and replaced some of the elderly officials from his father’s generations with younger officials in a possible move to consolidate power before the “protracted” battle. Kim replaced 91-year-old Kim Yong Nam, who had served North Korea’s two previous rulers, with Choe Ryong Hae as president of

the assembly’s presidium, the country’s nominal head of state. - 5. Kim intends to keep pressuring South Korea. Kim reserved some of his most pointed criticism for South Korea, in a warning to President Moon Jae-in in Seoul. Moon, who met with Trump at the White House on Thursday, has staked much of presidency on trying to find common ground between his allies in Washington and the country’s traditional rivals in Pyongyang. In his speech to the assembly, Kim called on the South Korean to quit acting as an “officious mediator” or “facilitator.” A separate KCNA commentary published Saturday also cited South Korea’s continued participation in joint military drills with the U.S. and its deployment of two American-made F-35A stealth fighters to argue that Moon’s government was “reneging on its promise” to reduce military tensions.

Handwritten draft of state’s first Constitution on display ALBANY — The handwritten manuscript draft of New York State’s 1777 state constitution, adopted in Kingston on April 20, 1777, will be on public display 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. April 15 through April 20 on the 11th floor of the Cultural Education Center, 222 Madison Ave., Albany. The display marks the 242nd anniversary of the state constitution and the establishment of New York as a state. The handwritten draft contains numerous strikeouts, additions and corrections. The complete, official text was published as the Constitution of the State of New York by Samuel Loudon, State Printer, at Fishkill in 1777. A final copy of the 1777 New York State Constitution does not exist; it is possible that the complete document was destroyed after it was sent to the printer in

Fishkill. A digital scan of the handwritten draft held by the New York State Archives is available online at the State Archives website. The first New York State Constitution was written and approved by a group of 14 delegates called the Convention of Representatives of the State of New York elected by property holders. While it was important to the delegates that the constitution represented the will of the people, the first constitution did not go to the people for a vote due to the ongoing Revolutionary War. By writing a constitution, the representatives were creating a government and a political system that did not exist in New York before the document was written. Following the adoption of the state constitution, the first elections were held in June

Reward the ultimate sacrifice When servicemen and women bravely traveled overseas to defend the nation and its people, some did something that took even more courage. They left behind their children, who did not know if they would see their moms and dads alive again. Their fearlessness is unquestionable. The question now is whether a bill that would have provided free college tuition and room and board to Gold Star children whose mothers and fathers gave the ultimate sacrifice will make it through the state Assembly. A similar benefit, known as the Merit Enhanced Recognition Incentive and Tribute, or MERIT, scholarship, adopted in 2003, provides tuition and room and board at State University of New York and City University of New York schools for children of troops who died in a combat zone. The new legislation would expand the benefit to children of troops who were killed or seriously disabled by any means while on active duty. Assemblyman Jake Ashby, R-107, one of the bill’s co-sponsors, wants to see the legislation approved. He voted against the measure that would prevent it from moving out of committee to come for a vote on the Assembly floor. The vote to hold the bill passed 15-11. Speaking in stronger, more partisan tones, Assemblyman Chris Tague, R-102, called the

committee’s decision “a disgrace.” “I am simply disgusted,” Tague said. “We have legislation here that would help provide college to the children of some of our fallen heroes, and Democrats move to block it?” Assemblywoman Didi Barrett, D-106, is not on the Higher Education Committee, but she voted for the original MERIT scholarships in the state budget, which provided $2.7 million in funding. “I have spoken with my colleagues about the bill which would expand MERIT scholarships beyond the traditional definition of Gold Star families, and while I believe this legislation is well-intended, some unanswered questions remain before it is ready to become law,” Barrett said. Two of those questions is the number of new students who would be eligible for the scholarship and the fiscal impact on the state. The Assembly must consider the message it will send to all of the soldiers serving in Afghanistan or throughout the world to sit on this bill while they put their lives on the line. And it must ultimately consider the message it sends to the public who are grateful for the service of military personnel. To many New Yorkers, the troops who sacrifice everything always seem to get little in return. It’s time for our state lawmakers to show the same courage.

If Trump reads only one book on immigration ... By Stephen L. Carter (c) 2019, Bloomberg Opinion

Critics have been having fun with President Donald Trump’s strange remark that “Our country is full.” They’ve taunted him over everything from population density to the declining birthrate. But Trump has shown little evidence of being swayed by criticism. I therefore have another suggestion: The president should read a comic book. Seriously. The book is called “Open Borders: The Science and Ethics of Immigration,” in which the economist Bryan Caplan and the cartoonist Zach Weinersmith take us on a delightful tour of the arguments and evidence behind the debate flagged in the title. (The book won’t be out until the fall, but the publisher kindly sent me an advance copy, and I’m sure would be happy to supply one to the White House too.) Before getting into why the volume might be helpful, let me say a word about the title. A lot of libertarians and liberals have adopted the phrase “Open Borders,” but I’m with those who consider the term a political mistake. The vision it conjures is of no border stations, no one keeping track of who’s in what country at what time. That’s not at all what supporters of the idea have in mind, and it’s certainly not what Caplan and Weinersmith have in mind. Borders would still be patrolled, immigrants would still have to fill out forms and so forth. The difference is that there would be few or no restrictions on who could cross. OK. Preliminaries over. What’s the argument? In the comic, Caplan’s avatar leads us through several, the most important of which is that open borders would lead to an enormous increase in wealth. He credits models suggesting that a policy of open borders might double worldwide GDP, from $75 trillion to $150 trillion - and reminds us that even if the change is smaller

than that, it’s still likely to be enormous. This is where the fun part comes in. “Imagine a million people in Antarctica, farming in the snow,” Caplan says, with matching Weinersmith illustrations. Suppose they were to move to a more fertile country? “The Antarctican immigrants are obviously better off, but they’re not the only beneficiaries.” Why not? Because “In their new country, farmers grow vastly more food” - which they sell, benefitting “everyone who eats.” Letting them in, he writes, would be both the decent and the smart thing to do. Caplan goes on to provide both arguments and evidence for the proposition that even low-skilled migrants increase the income of those who are already citizens as well as those who have come in search of better lives, and rejects one common counterargument as “the arithmetic fallacy.” Suppose you come across a study that shows that large-scale immigration would reduce average income. Say that “native” families earn an average of $50,000 and foreigners earn an average of $5,000. Open borders, he says, might reduce the average to $40,000 - and yet both sides would be better off. Natives might earn $60,000 and immigrants $20,000 and - well, you see the point. The book also deals with a number of other arguments in favor of restricting immigration. For instance, Caplan rejects Milton Friedman’s argument that you can’t have both free immigration and a welfare state. He has good answers to claims that immigrants are more likely to commit crimes and that they do not assimilate. He also considers arguments about how immigration changes culture, and here no doubt Trump would quibble. Caplan doesn’t deny that culture may change, but he presents a view of culture as something more than a museum-like reverence for

the past. What’s refreshing about the way that Caplan responds to the likely criticisms of his thesis is that he’s thoughtful and generous. Nobody is accused or racism or some other less-than-pure motivation. He is not afraid to admit when those who have a different view make a good point. This alone distinguishes this effort from so much of what passes for argument on this issue. He also concedes that compromise might be necessary. But he argues that if the public has legitimate concerns, “keyhole solutions” - in effect, small incisions - are better than an outright ban. The simplest of these is that if there is fear is about criminal immigrants, then a country could refuse to admit criminals. (See why borders are still necessary?) If there is fear that immigrants will be a drain on social services, then impose a waiting period. And so forth. To those who believe that such rules are hurtful to immigrants, Caplan responds that they’re right - but immigration with strings attached is still better than broad bans. And as he notes toward the end, most of these keyhole solutions are already more or less in place. The book isn’t perfect, and the careful reader will have questions about a lot of the details. A lot of readers won’t be persuaded. But by presenting the argument in the bright, attractive format of a comic, with characters and cute dialogue to illustrate most of the points, Caplan has made a contribution that even a skeptical president should love. Carter is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist. He is a professor of law at Yale University and was a clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. His novels include “The Emperor of Ocean Park,” and his latest nonfiction book is “Invisible: The Forgotten Story of the Black Woman Lawyer Who Took Down America’s Most Powerful Mobster.”

Mueller Report Will Be Released Thursday, Justice Dept. Says By Katie Benner c.2019 New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON — Attorney General William Barr will release a redacted version of the special counsel’s report Thursday morning, a Justice Department spokeswoman said on Monday, the first step in what promises to be a protracted fight with Democratic lawmakers over how much of the document they are allowed to see. The report will be released to both Congress and the public, the spokeswoman, Kerri Kupec, said. Barr will send the report after lawyers from the Justice Department and the office of the special counsel, Robert Mueller, finish blacking out secret grand jury testimony, classified information, material related to continuing investigations and other sensitive information. Barr, who was sworn in as attorney general in February, said in a letter to congressional judiciary committee leaders last month that the report “sets forth the special counsel’s findings, his analysis and the reasons for his conclusions” in his inquiry into possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia’s election interference and whether President Donald Trump illegally obstructed the investigation. “Everyone will soon be able to read it on their own,” Barr said of the report. Barr and Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, set off a firestorm when they concluded that Trump had not committed “an obstruction-ofjustice offense” in lieu of a deter-

mination from Mueller himself. Some prosecutors who worked for Mueller have said Barr did not accurately represent their findings after he received the report and shared its main conclusions last month. Under the special counsel rules, the attorney general can decide whether to share the report with the public and how much of it to release. But Democrats have shown an unwillingness to rely on Barr’s judgments. The House Judiciary Committee voted to authorize its chairman, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., to subpoena Barr to compel him to turn over an unredacted copy of the special

counsel’s report as well as its underlying investigative files. “As I have made clear, Congress requires the full and complete special counsel report, without redactions, as well as access to the underlying evidence,” Nadler said in a statement this month. Barr has said he will make himself available to testify before the Senate and House Judiciary committees next month after the report is released. Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, the House Judiciary Committee’s top Republican, has also asked that the committee invite Mueller to testify. “It is Special Counsel Mueller who is best

positioned to testify regarding the underlying facts and material in which you are so interested,” Collins wrote in a letter to Nadler.

Lori Loughlin, several other accused parents plead not guilty admissions case Nick Anderson The Washington Post

Actress Lori Loughlin, her husband and several other parents are pleading not guilty to charges filed against them in the college admissions scandal, according to court documents, a development that underscores the divergent legal strategies of those accused in the case. Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, who live in Los Angeles, are accused of fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy in an alleged bribery scam that prosecutors say was intended to secure admission for their two daughters to the University of Southern California. Loughlin became known for her role as Aunt Becky in the television sitcom “Full House.” She and Giannulli waived their right to appear in federal court in Boston for arraignment as they filed not-guilty pleas Monday through signed statements. Prosecutors allege that the couple paid a total of $500,000 to facilitate admission of their daughters to USC as purported crew recruits.

An attorney for the couple declined to comment Monday. They are among 33 parents who prosecutors say paid bribes to help get their children into prominent universities in a scheme orchestrated by admission consultant William “Rick” Singer. Some paid to obtain fraudulent scores on the ACT or SAT tests, prosecutors allege, while others paid to have their children designated as recruited athletes even though they lacked credentials to compete at the intercollegiate level. Singer has pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and other crimes and is cooperating in the case. Among the accused parents who were his clients, 13 agreed last week to plead guilty to conspiring to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, prosecutors say. Those defendants, including actress Felicity Huffman of Los Angeles, are scheduled to appear for plea hearings next month in U.S. District Court in Boston. It is not clear what penalty they will face. The fraud-conspiracy charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and

substantial fines. (One of the 13 also agreed to plead guilty to money laundering conspiracy.) Others are fighting the allegations in a case that could hinge on whether payments the parents made are judged to have been bribes or simply contributions to university athletic programs and a charity Singer controlled. Court documents show at least eight others in addition to Loughlin and Giannulli have filed pleas of not guilty in recent days: Gamal Abdelaziz, of Las Vegas; I-Hsin “Joey” Chen, of Newport Beach, California; Amy Colburn and Gregory Colburn, of Palo Alto, California; Michelle Janavs, of Newport Coast, California; Elisabeth Kimmel, of Las Vegas; David Sidoo, of Vancouver, Canada; and Robert Zangrillo, of Miami. In all, 50 people were charged in the case. The scandal, made public last month, has raised questions about equity in admissions to competitive colleges and universities. The Washington Post’s Jennifer Jenkins contributed to this report.

Spring gutter maintenance Joe Baker elected to the Olana Partnership board of trustees

By Bob Weinman For Columbia-Greene Media

When April showers fall upon your roof, it’s the job of your gutters to control and carry away all that water. You can pinpoint problems in your system if you take a few minutes to check the condition of your gutters and downspouts. Your annual spring inspection is a good place to start. Put on your rain gear or grab an umbrella, and go outside during a heavy rain. Nothing else will give you such a graphic picture of how much water your gutters must handle — or how well they are doing their job. If you see water pouring out over the top of a downspout or flowing down your siding, you know you have some repairs to make to return your gutter system to working order. Older galvanized gutters that have developed holes or are rusting out should probably be replaced. Aluminum gutters and downspouts, however, will last much longer with periodic maintenance, provided that they haven’t been crushed by a ladder or car bumper, or deformed by excessive ice build-up. Gutters that are otherwise sound can sag out of alignment, usu-

ally because they are no longer securely fastened in place. (A “washed-out” area in the lawn below can indicate this problem, as the cascading water destroys the ground cover.) When weather permits, climb a ladder to the gutter line and check the fascia board behind the gutter. This board can rot out, and you’ll have to replace it. If this needs to be done, contact a qualified contractor to perform this job. You should also make sure your gutter extensions are long enough. These are the final pieces that carry the water from the downspout away from the foundation and onto the ground. The longer these are the less likely you will be to have water flowing back towards the foundation and

potentially down against the foundation wall and into your basement. This is the whole point of the gutter system — to keep water off the siding and away from the foundation. This simple and often overlooked system of your home is by far one of the most important. When working properly it can help keep your plantings safe, your gardens from washing away and your basement dry. By checking your gutters periodically, you can prevent the major headaches that water damage can cause. Bob Weinman is the owner of Hudson Home Inspections. You can reach him at or 518-8217547.

Remembering the most common drug of abuse: Alcohol

Underage drinking: It’s not kid stuff

By Claire Parde, Executive Director

By Helen M. Exum

For Columbia-Greene Media

For Columbia-Greene Media

Addiction has got our attention now. Just a handful of years ago, the abuse of opioids, including both prescriptions drugs like OxyContin and illicit drugs like heroin, was a fairly “quiet” story, shared in whispers between family members and friends in the midst of their very private pain. Today, however, stories about the origins of the opioid epidemic, and its impact on individuals, families, whole communities, and even regional and national economies can be found on radio and television, in print and social media; someone, somewhere, is spreading information and building awareness about opioid addiction every day of the week. The story is so prevalent that it almost seems to eclipse discussion about other drugs of abuse, including the one that has been and continues to be the most commonly used addictive substance in the United States: alcohol. April is Alcohol Awareness Month and reminds us to take a closer look at the most common drug of abuse, and the health and social problems drinking too much can cause. According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, 17.6 million Americans — or one in every 12 adults — suffer from alcohol abuse or dependence and, by extension, an increased risk of injury, violence, drowning, liver disease, and some types of cancer. Additionally, several million more Americans engage in risky, binge drinking that could lead to alcohol problems (binge drinking for women is defined as consuming 4 or more drinks during a single occasion; for men, that’s 5 or more). In our own area, the numbers are smaller but no less significant. According to the 2016 Behavioral Health Risk Factor Surveillance Survey, 18.4 percent of Columbia County residents — that’s 7,060 people — reported that they engaged in binge drinking, while in Greene County

Spring, with its promise of new beginnings, far too often becomes a time of tragedy. Too many youthful lives are snuffed out due to alcohol related accidents, car crashes and violence at prom time and graduation. This heartbreak comes at a time when we, the families and communities of these young people, are celebrating their accomplishments and looking forward to their having long and happy lives. Preventing these unnecessary deaths is everyone’s responsibility. So, I’m asking families to help us in prevention. Help your children understand and then avoid the dangers inherent in alcohol misuse. You are the most powerful influence on your children. Talk to them about the very real problems underage drinking poses. SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) has an online program titled “Talk They Hear You.” It offers tips on how and when to begin a conversation about alcohol. You can find it at Why does alcohol rank first in popularity with our teens? It’s easy to get even if you aren’t legal. You sometimes don’t have to look farther than your family’s cabinets. Alcohol is part of our culture, part of celebrating. We grow up seeing it used and sometimes abused by the adults around us. Some adults think

that number was 17.3 percent, or 5,440 people. Not only do our communities have a fairly large number of people engaged in binge drinking, we also, unfortunately, have a culture of drinking and driving. According to the New York State Department of Health’s Community Health Indicator Reports (CHIRS), the 2014-16 alcohol-related motor vehicle injury and death rates are 43.3/100,000 people in Columbia County and 67.1/100,000 people in Greene County, quite a bit higher than the rate for the rest of upstate New York. Alcohol abuse can have negative health effects in the longterm as well, such as cirrhosis of the liver. According to the Community Health Indicator Reports, the age-adjusted rate for cirrhosis mortality — that’s the rate of people dying from liver disease — was 9.3 out of 100,000 residents in Columbia County and 9.5/100,000 in Greene County. The data even pinpoints particular parts of the Twin Counties where this problem is most prevalent. Interestingly, in Columbia County, Canaan had the highest cirrhosis mortality rate, while in Greene County, Cairo-Durham and Catskill did. These numbers are striking, but if there remains any doubt about the extent of alcohol abuse in Columbia and Greene Counties, we need only ask our neighbors. In a survey of 258 residents of Columbia and Greene Counties conducted last fall, 29 percent of the people that participated indicated that alcohol abuse was a “very serious” public health problem in our community. Clearly, problem drinking is widespread and we all feel its effects — including and perhaps especially the more than 10 percent of US children who live with a parent with alcohol problems — but the fact that adult consumption of alcohol is both legal and culturally

accepted may contribute to problem drinking being under-recognized and reported. Yet, there are ways to tell when drinking may have become a problem; consider these: n Drinking to calm nerves, forget worries or boost a sad mood n Guilt about drinking n Unsuccessful attempts to cut down or stop drinking n Lying about or hiding drinking habits n Causing harm to oneself or someone else as a result of drinking n Needing to drink increasingly greater amounts in order to achieve desired effects n Feeling irritable, resentful or unreasonable when not drinking n Medical, social, family or financial problems caused by drinking For those who recognize themselves or a loved one in these warning signs of problem drinking, there is help to be had in our community. Twin County Recovery Services provides support in the form of residential programs, outpatient clinics, off-site treatment and mobile services, and peer support. They can be reached at 518-828-9300 (Columbia) or 518-943-2036 (Greene). There are also many 12-step programs and other support services.

Drug take back day on April 27 in Windham and Cairo WINDHAM — The Town of Windham Police and Town of Cairo Police and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its 17th opportunity in nine years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Twin County Recovery Services Inc. will provide Prescription Safety Information. Bring your pills for disposal 10 a.m.-2 p.m. April 27 to the Windham Pharmacy, 6 Route 296 and South Street, Windham and the CVS in Cairo, 7600 Route 32, Cairo. Sites cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Last fall Americans turned in nearly 460 tons (more than 900,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,800 sites operated by the DEA and almost 4,800 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 16 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in almost 11 million pounds—nearly 5,500 tons—of pills. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. The Substance Abuse and

Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows year after year that the majority of misused and abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including someone else’s medication being stolen from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines — flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash — both pose potential safety and health hazards. For information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the April 27 Take Back Day event, go to www.

it’s appropriate for teens to drink at home. It’s part of our entertainment industry, radio, music, movies. Advertising targets young people offering flavored drinks, showing pictures of fun activities and glamorous people. Girls are the target of particularly aggressive campaigns by alcohol companies. Girls are also now using as much alcohol as the boys. Advertising works, but so does having an open dialog with your child. Let me tell you what I found out by asking the 8th and 9th grade youth here in Greene County a few simple questions about their views on alcohol. Alcohol is not generally perceived as a drug. Its potential to impair judgement and change personality is minimized. Long term deleterious effects on the brain and body are not associated with misuse of alcohol. They’re unsure about the addictive nature of the drug. It’s interesting to note that while an overwhelming majority of students identify tobacco as a serious risk to health, they haven’t the same sense of danger when it comes to alcohol. We need to change these misconceptions. Talk, they listen. Be a role model for responsible alcohol use. The legal age to purchase and consume alcohol is 21. Yet the 2017 Youth Risk Behavior Survey reports that 14 percent of young people between the ages of 12-20 years consume 11 percent of all the alcohol consumed in

the United States. And 6 percent of these teens drove. The survey also found that more than 90 percent of underage consumption is in the form of BINGE drinking. Quick fact check: binge drinking is defined for men as 5 drinks within a 2 hour period; for women it’s 4 drinks within the 2 hour period. Dr. Arron White, Duke University neuroscientist, in his research paper “Rethinking Underage Drinking” shares his conclusion that brain cells die during the hangover stage and in adolescents the distinct possibility exists that this damage may be permanent. That should be enough to stop you cold. The fact is, the teen brain is more vulnerable to the effects of alcohol and teens who use alcohol early risk becoming addicted to alcohol and using other drugs later in life. Greene County is rated one of New York State’s Counties with the highest rate of alcohol related motor vehicle injuries and deaths per 100,000 population. Alcohol is responsible for one fourth of all fatal car accidents involving teens (MADD). Approximately 4,358 teens lose their lives in drunk driving accidents. STOP and think, Don’t Drink! Helen M.

American Red Cross announce blood drives POUGHKEEPSIE — The American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to give blood during National Volunteer Month this April. Eligible donors of all blood types — especially type O — are needed to help ensure blood products are available for patients this spring. For many volunteer blood donors, like Gail Wright, that personal connection serves as inspiration to give. Wright’s brother was involved in a serious motorcycle accident in 1982 and needed several blood transfusions during his four-month recovery. She lived over 120 miles away at the time. Unable to be near him, she decided she could help by donating blood. Wright has continued to donate and recently completed her 11th gallon of donated blood — 88 lifesaving blood donations. Make an appointment to help save lives now by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800733-2767). To celebrate the final season of Game of Thrones, HBO and the American Red Cross have partnered to encourage fans and donors to show their bravery and valor by bleeding #ForTheThrone. Many answered the call to give earlier this year, and much like the show, embarking on its final season, the fight for the living isn’t over. Those who come to donate by April 30 will be automatically entered for a chance to win a full-size Iron Throne from HBO’s Game of Thrones. Terms and conditions apply and are available at Additionally, all presenting donors April 11-30, 2019, will receive a commemorative Bleed For

The Throne poster, while supplies last, and automatically be entered in the abovementioned sweepstakes.

Part of Notre-Dame Cathedral spire collapses in fire Aurelien Breeden The New York Times News Service

PARIS — A large fire broke out at the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris on Monday evening, causing part of the historic church’s spire to collapse as the blaze spread along its roof. André Finot, a spokesman for the cathedral, said the cause of the fire remained unknown, and there was no immediate indication that anyone had been hurt. “It’s not about the faith — Notre Dame is a symbol of France,” said Emmanuel Guary, a 31-year-old actor who was among a huge crowd amassed on the Rue Rivoli, on the Right Bank. After part of the spire collapsed, the fire appeared to spread across the rooftop, where the growing flames licked the sky and projected a yellow smoke over the horizon. The fire alarm first went off around 6:30 p.m., Finot said, adding that the cathedral had been evacuated. As the last rush of tourists were trying to get in for the day, the doors of Notre Dame were abruptly shut without explanation, witnesses said. Within moments, tiny bits of white smoke started rising from

the spire. Billowing out, the smoke started turning gray, then black,

making it clear a fire was growing inside the cathedral, which

is currently covered in scaffolding. Soon, orange flames began

punching out of the spire, quickly increasing in intensity. French police rushed in and started blowing whistles, telling everyone to move back, witnesses said. By then, the flames were towering, spilling out of multiple parts of the cathedral. Tourists and residents alike came to a standstill, pulling out their phones to call their loved ones. Older Parisians began to cry, lamenting how their national treasure was quickly being lost. Thousands stood on the banks of the Seine river and watched in shock as the fire tore through the cathedral’s wooden roof and brought down part of the spire. Video filmed by onlookers and shared on social media showed smoke and flames billowing from the top of the cathedral. President Emmanuel Macron of France canceled a major speech that was scheduled for Monday evening, in which he was supposed to announce measures addressing the yellow vest protest movement that has roiled the country over the past months. Macron said on Twitter that “like all of our fellow citizens, I am sad tonight to see this part of us burn.”

They are well paid,” Jones said. “I keep hearing that the teachers are underpaid. That’s what I hear. But how is the quality of education, how do the students do — that is pertinent, too. If this is

performance based, then you need to look at that as well.” New York State United Teachers spokesman Matt Hamilton said educators provide a valuable service. NYSUT is the union that

represents teachers statewide. “New York’s teachers are dedicated to ensuring that our children receive a highquality public education,” Hamilton said. “NYSUT is

proud to support hundreds of thousands of educators who deserve fair salaries that reflect their hard work and high levels of expertise and education.” Matt Fuller, the teachers’

representative from the Taconic Hills Central School District, said there are too many variables that cannot be fact-checked about the numbers, and declined to comment further on the study. The highest paid school district in the state is the Bronxville district in Westchester County, where teachers received a median annual salary of $362,000, more than $100,000 more than the next highest salary, according to the institute. The Bronxville data was regarded as “an outlier” and was excluded from the survey. The Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government, a research arm of the State University of New York, is a public policy think tank founded in 1981 that conducts research and analysis to inform solutions to the problems facing New York state and the nation, according to the organization’s website.

U.S. EPA toxicity test for waste and, therefore, determined to be a non-hazardous waste, according to NYSDEC and U.S. EPA standards,” Nadeau said. “The proposed facility will operate in accordance with stringent state and federal environmental standards designed to protect public health and the environment while providing significant longterm economic and environmental benefits to the town and village,” Nadeau said. Because of the site’s location, the ash is susceptible to leaching, Enck said. “Every 100 feet there is a fissure on the property,” Enck said. It is inevitable the toxins will leach into groundwater and springs.” Rubin agreed. “They use a geomembrane, which is a plastic, to

collect leachate,” Rubin said. “It doesn’t last. The community will be left with a toxic metal waste site.” The site will be returned to its natural state after the landfill has reached its capacity, Wheelabrator Manager of Development Mark Schwartz said in February. “We can plant indigenous species after,” Schwartz said, adding that these sites are also popular for renewable power after they’ve been used. The project is the first of its kind, Enck said. “There has never been a project before where you bring ash into a quarry,” Enck said. The community is calling on Catskill Town Supervisor Doreen Davis, who did not attend the press conference, to reject the project. “She has been outsourcing

the project to DEC, which is a mistake,” Enck said. “The town should stand up and stop it in its tracks rather than wait seven to eight years for the state to review it.” Enck does not want to see Catskill stigmatized for hosting a toxic ash dump so close to the Hudson River, she said. Rubin has researched alternative uses for retired quarries. On a map he generated to show the features of the landscape and potential pathways for contaminants, Rubin included the alternative for an

80-acre lake. “We could revitalize Catskill,” Rubin said. “It could be known as something fabulous, instead of a toxic waste dump.” Other popular quarry repurposing options include hotels, nature parks and amusement parks. Gallay encouraged residents to get involved. “For countless reasons, this is a bad project and there are many better alternatives for the site,” Gallay said. “We’re calling on the community to get active and engage their

leaders so that, together, we can agree on a better plan for the old quarry than to fill it with toxic ash.” Residents who want to join the cause can sign a letter to Davis, which currently has signatures from more than 50 environmental and community groups and nearly 100 residents. The letter is being sent to the Catskill Town Board and the state Department of Environmental Conservation. A forum will be held April 23 at 7 p.m. at the Catskill Community Center on Main Street.

American flag, he’s frequently recognized. Along the way, people give him hugs or stop their vehicles and walk beside him. “I’ve met so many awesome people,” he said. “Everyone has been beeping their horns at me all the way from Albany to Hudson. I had a truck driver pull over and give me $20, telling me put this towards your project. I had a guy come out of his car in tears and said I read about you in Oneonta. I have been walking Route 9 and people just get out for a while, walk with me and talk.” Last week, while in Albany, Romeo spoke on the floor of the state Senate, an appearance sponsored in part by Assemblywoman Didi Barrett, D-106. Romeo advocated for his new curriculum in the process of being piloted this year in American History classes in Bay Shore, called “The

Experience of the American Soldier.” The curriculum teaches students about what veterans and soldiers are. The curriculum also compares and contrasts letters home from the Civil War to Romeo’s letters home during the Vietnam War. Romeo will be speaking in Hudson Junior-Senior High School on Wednesday about veterans and PTSD. On Thursday, he will be make his way midday along Route 9 and Route 23, across the Rip Van Winkle Bridge on his way to Route 9W south to Ulster County.

After 22 years, Tiger Woods has come full circle Timothy Bella The Washington Post

As Tiger Woods completed an improbable, decade-long comeback not many predicted would evolve from pipe dream to green jacket, his 10-yearold son made good on a New Year’s resolution on Sunday. In a fourth-grade classroom, Charlie Woods was asked at the beginning of the year to write down his goal for 2019. His answer was easy: He wanted to see his father, arguably the most transcendent athlete in modern history, victorious. “He wanted to actually witness me winning a golf tournament,” Woods told CBS’s Jim Nantz. “Well, he witnessed me winning a major championship.” With the roar of the crowd deafening, Woods, grinning ROB SCHUMACHER/USA TODAY from ear to ear with celebratory clenched fists, made the Tiger Woods celebrates with daughter Sam and son Charlie after winning The Masters at Augusta familiar walk to the small hold- National Golf Club on Sunday. ing area behind the 18th green with a doctor linked to perfor- years of smoking, drinking and would “do more than any other of Augusta National.

still winning, but one thing had changed for Woods, who went on to finish tied for 17th that year. “The last time he won the Masters, in 2005, his children weren’t born,” the authors wrote in “Tiger Woods.” “He wanted nothing more than for them to see their dad put on a green jacket.” A couple years later, during a private meet-and-greet with soccer legend Lionel Messi, Woods wondered again what it would be like to show his kids a taste of what he was like at the height of his powers during Tigermania. According to “Tiger Woods,” when he asked his children how cool it was to meet a living legend, Sam replied, “Yeah. We live with one.” On social media, golf experts and fans alike compared Sunday’s father-son hug to his iconic 1997 moment with Earl. “Everyone remembers Tiger’s hug with his father in 1997,” golf broadcaster Kevin Smith tweeted. “No one will ever forget today’s embrace with his son.” “I’m not crying you’re crying,” said Ben Heisler, a podcast host for the sports media website Awful Announcing. San Diego-based broadcaster Jeff McAdam expressed similar feelings. “It’s okay to cry,” he tweeted. Wearing his fifth green jacket and first in 14 years, Woods remembered saying similar words to his mom that his dad told him in 1997: “I just said, ‘We did it. I love you so much, mom.’ “ He admitted he could not hear his children over the thousands screaming in jubilation, himself included. Throughout a 42-minute news conference, Woods reiterated how he hoped his children were proud of him. That’s all he wanted, he said. “Their love and their support, I just can’t say enough how much that meant to me throughout my struggles when I really just had a hard time moving around. Just their infectiousness of happiness; you know, I was going through a tough time physically,” he said. “But just to have them there, and then now to have them see their Pops win, just like my Pops saw me win here, it’s pretty special.”

Yanks’ Paxton will face crucial test in Red Sox Bob Klapisch The New York Times News Service

When James Paxton takes the mound at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, he will be at the center of one of baseball’s hottest rivalries. The crowd will be electric, the atmosphere charged, if not primal. And in the Boston Red Sox, Paxton will not just be facing the New York Yankees’ archenemies, but the defending world champions. It’s a lot to ask of any pitcher, but for Paxton, who has struggled with mechanical and confidence issues, there will be an extra degree of difficulty. After spending the first six years of his career with the Seattle Mariners, Paxton is off to a lackluster start with the Yankees: 1-2 with a 6.00 ERA, including an especially rough outing against the Houston Astros during which he allowed five runs and two home runs, and was removed in the fifth inning without recording an out. Paxton’s early exit sealed Houston’s three-game sweep of the Yankees, and was yet another reminder that a transition to the Yankees’ universe can be tougher than it looks. Paxton admits he has been somewhat overwhelmed by the outsize expectations — his own. “I think just getting that under control and realizing it’s the same game,” Paxton said Sunday morning, adding: “I think I’ve been trying to do too much, trying to be better than what I am. I realized I’m good enough being who I am or who I was in Seattle.” This is no small issue for Paxton or the Yankees. The team watched Sonny Gray, another small-market talent, pitch himself out of the Bronx in less than two full seasons as a result of his discomfort in front of a bigger, more demanding audience. But unlike Gray, who never successfully confronted those demons, Paxton is working with a sports psychologist he has retained

since his minor league days. Compounding Paxton’s confidence problems is the ease in which Houston detected his pitches last Thursday. For that, the left-hander says he has only himself to blame. It was when he went back over his performance that he realized how obvious his tells had become. Working from the stretch position, Paxton’s raised left index finger would peek out from his glove before throwing the knuckle curve, allowing Astros runners on second base to alert hitters what was coming. That would help explain why the Astros looked so comfortable pummeling Paxton. Going over video with Carlos Beltran, the former Yankee who is now a consultant for the team, helped Paxton grapple with the issue.

“Look at these takes. Look at that swing,” Paxton said, recalling Beltran’s words. “They wouldn’t be making these swings or takes if they didn’t know what was coming.” The good news for the Yankees is that Paxton is already working on better camouflage. Now, as he goes into the stretch, he is waiting until the ball is deep in his glove before changing grips. But even with a battened-down delivery, Paxton still has to prove he can handle the pressure that the Boston rivalry can offer. Granted, the Red Sox have barely resembled the 2018 version of themselves, losing 10 of their first 16 games. The team has been undermined by its pitching staff’s 5.80 ERA — 13th in the American League even after David Price shone in a 4-0 win over Baltimore on Sunday.

The Yankees have not fared much better. Their 5-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Sunday was their fifth in six games. Except for a three-game wipeout of Baltimore last weekend, the Yankees have dropped every series this season. Masahiro Tanaka, who had brandished a 1.47 ERA, was ambushed by Tim Anderson’s grand slam in the fourth inning Sunday and was subsequently knocked out in the fifth. The loss scuttled plans for the Yankees to build momentum heading into the Red Sox series. It was Boston, after all, that on the way to winning the World Series ended the Yankees’ season in a division series last October. “That left a bad taste in our mouths,” Luke Voit said. It’s because of the long history of battles between the teams that even amid a sluggish April for both of them, a Yankees-Red Sox showdown can still offer plenty of excitement. That’s one of the reasons Paxton will be scrutinized so closely. A pitcher’s worth to the Yankees has always been commensurate to his success against Boston. As a Mariner, Paxton was successful against the Red Sox, going 2-0 with a 2.79 ERA. But that calculus changes Tuesday night, when every inning will feel like the postseason. Does Paxton have the stomach for what’s around the corner? He acknowledged the concern, saying “I’m sure I’ll be a little nervous going in, having it be my first experience being a part of this rivalry.” Paxton will probably come in loaded up with tips and reminders from his support team: Keep the ball hidden in the glove and keep your wits about you. Breathe slow and easy. But Paxton could simply unload the baggage and adopt CC Sabathia’s war cry: Just bring it on.

After Murray, this year’s QB draft class offers lots of uncertainty Mark Maske The Washington Post

Few classes of NFL rookie quarterbacks were as celebrated as last year’s group of Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen and Josh Rosen. All four ended up being chosen in the top 10 of last year’s NFL draft, beginning with Mayfield first overall by the Cleveland Browns, and the Baltimore Ravens made it five quarterbacks taken in the opening round when they traded up to select Lamar Jackson with the 32nd pick. This year’s draft class of quarterbacks is, by comparison, ordinary and unexciting. Its ranks were bolstered when Kyler Murray, the Heisman Trophy winner who succeeded Mayfield at Oklahoma, chose football over baseball and became an intriguing candidate to be the No. 1 overall selection by the Arizona Cardinals on draft night. But as talent evaluators in and around the league debate the skills and NFL potential of other available quarterbacks such as Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins, Missouri’s Drew Lock, Duke’s Daniel Jones, North Carolina State’s Ryan Finley and West Virginia’s Will Grier, there is little in the way of consensus. Some maintain it is a better-than-advertised class that is likely to yield several solid starters and a prospective megastar in the dynamic Murray. Others contend it is a pedestrian group in which Murray has star potential accompanied by question marks and most, if not all, of the others could end up being relegated to backup duties for much of their NFL careers. “I’ve talked to people who tell me if [Murray] doesn’t pan out, there’s not a single starter in this group,” a high-ranking executive with one NFL team

said at last month’s annual league meeting in Phoenix. “I’m not sure I’m buying that. It’s not like it’s a terrible group. I like some of these guys and the odds are a couple of them will become decent starters. But it’s nothing like last year.” There are defenders of this year’s quarterback class. Browns General Manager John Dorsey scoffed when asked during the recent NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis about some draft observers dismissing this group of quarterbacks. “There’s some really talented players in this draft class,” Dorsey said. “I don’t know why they would be dismissing them . . . I think this is a pretty good draft class.” Murray is the headliner of the group and almost certainly is the most interesting player in a defense-centric draft. He is an electrifying runner and a highly capable passer with both arm strength and accuracy. He was selected ninth overall in the Major League Baseball draft by the Oakland Athletics, but opted for football and said at the combine that he won’t revisit or second-guess his choice. “I’m ready to go,” Murray said. “I was born a football player. I love this game. There was no turning back when I made this decision. I’m 100 percent in.” Murray made it two straight Heisman winners for Oklahoma at quarterback, following Mayfield, and could make it two straight No. 1 overall selections in the NFL draft. The Cardinals traded up to pick Rosen 10th overall last year. But they could trade Rosen, perhaps to the Washington Redskins, if they believe that Murray is too good to pass up and too perfect a fit for the offense of their new head coach, Kliff Kingsbury.

Tyler Bergman went 3 for 3 with a home run and two RBI for the Warriors. Jaeger and Madeline Gorey both had a double. “Lake George is a quality team,” Maple Hill coach Patrik Austin said. “We put them on the schedule on purpose to see where we stand among some of the best in Class C. We played hard and showed some fight, but Lake George was the better team today. “ I know the girls would have liked to have some plays back, but we’ll learn a lot from this game and move forward and get better.”

Mets’ McNeil’s most important possession is his bat Kevin Armstrong The New York Times News Service

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Jeff McNeil, the New York Met with the most mitts in his clubhouse locker, was encouraged to reorganize his stall during spring training. He was rotating between third base and left field, depending on the day, and batting anywhere from leadoff to eighth, so the third-base coach, Gary DiSarcina, sat down and explained to him that he needed to eliminate some clutter. McNeil proceeded to pull eight gloves from his locker and pile them on the floor. The last one he retrieved was the most worn. “That’s the gamer!” he said. McNeil, 27, is the Mets’ most valuable grinder. His blond goatee whiskers and notable nimbleness earned him the nickname Squirrel during his days diving for line drives as an outfielder at Long Beach State, and he has continued to pounce on any opportunity. In his first major league at-bat last summer, he swung on the first pitch he saw for a base hit to center field, and he has kept connecting with his knobless bat ever since, pulling doubles

into right field and smacking the ball to left against shifts with a stroke he considers a product of his golfing past. On Saturday night against the Atlanta Braves, he set a Mets record with 90 hits in his first 76 games in the majors. McNeil added two more hits Sunday night as the Mets lost to the Braves, 7-3. “Before he goes to bat, I love telling him, ‘Go get squirrelly for us real quick!’” first baseman Dominic Smith said. “Squirrel hits are the best hits.” Squirrel fielding, however, can be more of an adventure. One afternoon early in spring training, he was manning left field when he tried to track a line drive from Miami’s Isaac Galloway. McNeil, wearing shades and still reorienting himself to the position after playing second and third last season, backpedaled before the wind blew the ball over his right shoulder. He turned all the way around in time for the ball to hit the palm of his glove. It then popped out, and McNeil crashed into the warning-track dirt. “Did the most athletic thing that I could,” said McNeil, who continues to take extra repetitions in the outfield before games to work on his route running, with quality-control coach Luis

Rojas serving as his tutor. “I make that catch almost every time.” McNeil makes up for any missteps in the field with his extraordinary resourcefulness, which has proved indispensable for the Mets thus far. For all their talk about their depth, the Mets have found themselves relying heavily on McNeil since infielders Todd Frazier and Jed Lowrie went down with injuries in spring training. Neither has played this season. And McNeil has managed to consistently be in the middle of the action in the early part of this season, whether it was stroking a 400-foot triple, collecting four hits in a game, being hit by pitches three times in two days, being caught in rundowns twice or the time he made two of the three outs in an inning. In essence, McNeil can be thrilling and a little maddening. “I think baseball is kind of coming back around to those guys,” right fielder Michael Conforto said of his teammate. “It’s not so much about the guys who just launch balls. I think you are seeing teams value guys who play a lot of positions and do all the little things right: Steal bases, play defense and spray the ball all over the field.” With his uncommon hand-eye

coordination at the plate, McNeil’s offense is ultimately the reason manager Mickey Callaway must find places for him to play. Though he can appear offbalance in the batter’s box at times, McNeil patiently keeps his hands back to wait on breaking balls. To Callaway, McNeil’s approach ranks somewhere on the swing spectrum between Wade Boggs and Ichiro Suzuki. As Conforto said: “If the pitcher gets him out with something, he comes back and he says, ‘I’m going to get this guy! If he throws me that pitch again, I’m going to get him!’ Just constantly overflowing with confidence.” It was his batting that allowed him to finally break through. Selected in the 12th round of the 2013 draft, McNeil languished in the minors until ripping through Class AA and AAA last season with a combined .342 average, 19 home runs, 36 walks and 71 RBIs. He continued to do the same after the Mets called him up, stitching together an 11-game hitting streak during one stretch and batting .329 overall in 225 at-bats with three homers, six triples and 19 RBIs. In a lost season for the Mets, McNeil, at the advanced rookie age of 26, was something of a revelation.

The Mets appreciated McNeil’s ability enough to keep him out of the winter trade that brought closer Edwin Diaz and second baseman Robinson Cano from Seattle to Queens. But the acquisitions of Cano in December and Lowrie in January also meant that McNeil needed to expand his versatility. In spring training, McNeil, who also bulked up to 195 pounds, was slated to take 80 percent of his assignments in left field, but then Lowrie went down with a knee injury the first week. Frazier, slated for third base, followed with an oblique strain. McNeil moved to third, picking grounders and talking positioning with Frazier, who has played every spot in the majors except pitcher, catcher and center field. McNeil will figure it out. His unconventional path to the Mets included playing baseball as a youth but then giving it up for golf when he got to high school. He eventually competed against Jordan Spieth (now a three-time winner of major golf tournaments) at the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship in July 2009. Spieth won the tournament, but McNeil still wonders where he might have ended up if he had putted better.

Girl with Asperger’s gets little attention from dad My husband is more interested in hanging out with his friends than caring about our 11-year-old daughter who has Asperger’s syndrome. She’s a great kid and smart, but she has challenges and needs help. It falls to me to do everything with and for DEAR ABBY her. I need him to participate more where she’s concerned, but he loses patience with her and with me. He resents having to pay for therapy and music lessons for her (she loves music), but he had no hesitation about buying himself an expensive sports car — not for us but for him. He’s actually going away for a weekend with his buddies! I’ve thought about marriage counseling, but he isn’t interested. I feel overwhelmed and very alone. Please help. Like A Single Mom In San Francisco


I’ll try. Forgive my sarcasm, but it appears you married a real “winner” — selfish and lacking the compassion and maturity to deal with the challenges your family is facing. Because your husband is unwilling to go with you for marriage counseling, you would benefit from talking to a licensed therapist on your own. When you do, it may give you a broader perspective on what your options are. Eight years ago, my mother, then age 86, came to live with me. My life has changed

substantially in the last two years, and I need to move to another state. My husband already lives there, and I want to be with him. My mother’s anxieties and fears are what’s holding me back. I have told her she can live with us there, or at a brand-new assisted living facility that’s about to open in the town. Alternatively, she could move back to our hometown where my retired sister lives and stay in an assisted living facility there. Her remaining in this city is not an option because I’m the only person she knows here, and it’s eight hours from where I will be. Conversations with her on this subject are difficult as she prefers to ignore them, choosing only to consider her own needs. Her overall health is manageable, and she’s doing well cognitively. She has not been hospitalized in two years. What do I do? Taking Care In Florida Continue moving forward with your plans to relocate to be with your husband. Tell your mother you are giving her the choice of whether to reside with you or near your sister, but make clear she must make up her mind because you need to know whether you will have to accommodate her in your new home. Give her a deadline to let you know her preference, but if she refuses, make sure she understands that by default she’ll be living near your sister.

The search is on for cause of man’s mild anemia I’m a 73-year-old male. My recent bloodwork showed a mild anemia. My doctor ordered a second blood test and a cancer screening kit. The anemia was stable, and the screening was normal with no microscopic blood detected. He is not sure why my bloodwork showed a mild anemia and has TO YOUR me scheduled to repeat testing GOOD HEALTH every three months. He has requested that I monitor my stools for evidence of bloody or black diarrhea. There has been no evidence of such as of yet. I had a colonoscopy a little over three years ago that resulted in one polyp being removed, and I had mild inflammation in my colon that was attributed to the solution used to clean out the colon. Is there any possible explanation for the mild anemia other than looking for evidence of blood in my stools? In other words, is bleeding in the intestinal tract the only explanation for my mild anemia? My doctor is reluctant to order a colonoscopy unless there is evidence of bleeding, since it has only been three years from my last one.


Anemia, Latin for “too little blood,” just means the blood count is lower than normal for a person’s age and condition. In general, there are two major categories of anemia: your body is not making enough, or you’re losing blood. However, both can exist at the same time. If you’re not making enough blood, it can be because of a lack of the nutrients needed to do

so. Folic acid, vitamin B-12 and iron are the most common nutrients to cause this. Your doctor normally would check this once the anemia is confirmed. If it’s the case, treatment is both replacing the nutrient and figuring out why you didn’t have enough to begin with. Diet alone is a rare cause. Diseases of the bone marrow, of which there are many, is the other major class of underproduction anemias. At age 73, your doctor should be considering that possibility, which often requires a visit to a hematologist and a biopsy of the bone marrow to sort out for certain. Losing blood is sometimes obvious, but when it isn’t, the gastrointestinal tract is, by far, the leading place it is lost. Colon cancer is the first concern, but that is unlikely (but not impossible) only three years out from a normal colonoscopy. Still, it is drilled into us in medicine that iron deficiency in a man or a post-menopausal woman is presumed to be colon cancer until you prove it isn’t. A colonoscopy three years ago may not be strong enough evidence that there is no source of blood loss in the colon; it could develop in three years, and even the best colonoscopy can occasionally miss small lesions. I suspect you may be iron deficient, which is why your doctor is so concerned about loss from your gut. There are cases where the iron deficiency is from another cause besides bleeding (poor absorption due to celiac disease is a common one), and this can lead to confusion.

Horoscope By Stella Wilder Born today, you know how to learn lessons and apply them very effectively to what you are doing, and you don’t let obstacles stand in your way when self-improvement is on the line. You will brook any hardship to ensure that you better yourself, and you recognize that the journey is often far more valuable than the myriad overnight destinations you may visit along the road to self-knowledge and self-understanding. You work well with others, and in fact, you are often at your best when you are part of a team. You needn’t be in charge, but you may find that the stars have prepared you for being in charge when the opportunity arises. You know how to work with all kinds of people, and though you can at times be something of a hothead, you will always strive to maintain control of your temper — for when it flares, you may actually go so far as to endanger yourself or those around you. Always remember that the calmer you remain, the more you are capable of doing. Also born on this date are: Martin Lawrence, actor and comedian; Selena, singer; Charlie Chaplin, actor; Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, basketball player; Pope Benedict XVI; Jon Cryer, actor; Wilbur Wright, inventor, pioneer aviator; Bobby Vinton, singer.
