CATSKILL — The future of Rite Aid locations in the Twin Counties is up in the air. Three weeks after the Rite Aid at 226 W. Bridge St., Catskill, closed July 23, the company did not have any details Friday on what would happen to the company’s two other locations in the Twin Counties: the Hudson store at 173 Fairview Ave., and the Greenville location at 5 Garland Lane. All the locations were acquired by Walgreens in September, according to Rite Aid spokeswoman Ashley Flowers.

“As announced last October, we will be closing some store locations to help ensure we have the right stores in the right locations to create a more focused network of stores that can deliver the greatest value for our customers,” Walgreens spokeswoman Allison Mack said Friday. Walgreens Boots Alliance, the owner of the Walgreens brand, announced it would buy roughly half of Rite Aid’s stores for $5.18 billion June 29, 2017. The Federal Trade Commission approved an agreement Sept. 19, 2017 for Walgreens Boots Alliance to buy Rite See FUTURE A2

FAA to pay for 90% of airport runway rehab By Richard Moody Columbia-Greene Media

HUDSON — The Federal Aviation Administration will cover 90 percent of Columbia County’s planned $1.98 million rehabilitation project for the runway at the county airport. The 5,350-foot-long by 100-foot-wide runway is about 20 years old. It was last paved in 1998. The Columbia County Board of Supervisors awarded a $1,783,951 contract to A. Colarusso & Son, Inc., of Hudson, in June, to rehabilitate the strip. The board of supervisors accepted a grant from the FAA at its meeting Wednesday that

will reimburse the county 90 percent, or $1.78 million, of the expenses for the runway rehabilitation. The county also received a state Aviation Capital Funding grant, covering 5 percent, or $99,105, of the project. Columbia County will be left to cover the remaining 5 percent of the project cost. The total price tag is $1,982,110, which includes the construction cost, project inspection, oversight, a mandatory FAA flight check of the new runway edge lighting and a replacement navigational aid on the south end of the runway.

Aid with 1,932 stores for $4.38 billion total. The purchased stores were primarily located in the Northeast and South, according to the statement from the company in September. “After all stores are acquired, stores are planned to be converted to the Walgreens brand in carefully planned phases over time,” according to the statement. But the company has not said which stores will be converted into Walgreens locations and which will be closed permanently and sold. The Rite Aid locations in Catskill and Hudson are across the street from two Walgreens — one at 165 Fairview Ave., Hudson, and the other is at 19 Central Ave., Catskill. There is no Walgreens located next to the Rite Aid in Greenville. Patient prescription records from the Rite Aid in Catskill are now available at the 19 Central Ave. Walgreens. “While we will be closing some stores in the AlbanySchenectady-Troy area, we will also be investing in the community through the process of

converting other Walgreensowned Rite Aid stores to the Walgreens brand,” Mack said Friday. “We also plan to begin converting other Walgreensowned Rite Aid stores to the Walgreens brand. This process will begin later this year and continue in phases over the next 18 months or so.” Walgreens is the secondlargest drug-store chain behind CVS. Rite Aid now operates just over 2,300 stores compared with Walgreens’ 8,175 and CVS’ 9,800 pharmacies. The company also did not

say what will happen to the Catskill location after it is emptied out on Saturday. Husband-and-wife team James and Jean Mikel, owners of J&J Liquidations, of Elmira, were cleaning out the 14,000-square-foot Catskill store Tuesday. They began work on Aug. 5. “It’s too bad about it closing,” James said. “We’ve been doing this about 20 years. Mostly, we do fixture liquidation. A store closes, we go in and we sell whatever we can. And whatever we can’t sell, we ship it out, put it in the

and towns afford the added cost for offering insurance. The county could use savings in its workers’ compensation fund to reduce how much towns and departments pay for the insurance. Each January, the county bills the towns — along with warrants for property taxes — for workers’ compensation. In 2018, all the towns and county paid about $2.5 million into the workers’ compensation fund, and Keeler projects the amount will be about the same in 2019. “We have seen savings in workers’ compensation claims the last couple of years,” Keeler said. “We used to see significant claims from the Pine Haven Nursing Home. Since we sold the nursing home, we have seen savings.” The former county nursing home at 201 Main St., Philmont, was sold in 2015. The county would charge the towns less for workers’ compensation each year under Keeler’s plan, based on preliminary estimates, but then turn around and charge municipalities for the cost of the insurance, which would save the towns money on the insurance costs. The amount paid to workers’ compensation will decrease to about $2.3 million

under the plan — an overall savings of $156,999. “These numbers are still very preliminary,” Keeler said. “We will not know the total costs to the towns for the insurance until the fire departments get a quote from Hartford.” Keeler’s plan is budgetneutral, he said, and will not require an increase in taxes. FASNY is reaching out to fire departments to determine which are participating in its program. The participating departments will give FASNY the number of eligible firefighters by Jan. 1. For example, the Ancram Volunteer Fire Department, would pay $3,150 a year to provide insurance to its eligible firefighters through FASNY’s program, under preliminary estimates. But under Keeler’s plan, Ancram would be charged $1,672 less for workers’ compensation. The county would then come back and charge the town $1,610 for the insurance cost and cover the difference at roughly $110 per firefighter from the money saved by reducing the county’s contribution to the workers’ compensation fund. An estimated $102,569 in savings is estimated for 2019. In Ancram, the county would contribute $1,540 to pay for

Approach Path Indicator. “All of the existing runway lighting, airfield signage and the RW 3 end PAPI are 25-plus years old and nearing the end of their useful lives,” Knox said. “Thus, replacing all of these critical airport infrastructure components during the runway rehab work is the opportune time to do that work as well.” Some of the work may start at some point later this year, but most of it will be done in the late spring and early summer of 2019. The county expects the project will be completed in seven or eight weeks. “Maintaining an airport runway surface in good-to-excellent condition is one of the highest priorities for the safe operation of an airport, thus the implementation, funding and progression of a project to rehabilitate and resurface our only runway is of the utmost importance to all who fly in and out of our facility,” Knox said. “The replacement of old,

aging airfield lighting, signage and navigational aids is almost as important as the runway pavement condition.”

dumpster or recycle it for scrap metal.” After they finish cleaning up the store on Saturday they are heading to three stores in Massachusetts, James said. On Tuesday, crews were removing metal brackets, flooring, shelving, kiosks and booths. Ryan Grace was moving a shopping cart full of materials to a dumpster Tuesday afternoon. He recently moved from the Columbia County area to Catskill when he heard about the temporary job opportunity at the former Rite Aid. Grace said he had not heard what is going to happen to the store. “I am familiar with the area, so I decided to do something to help out,” he said. “I have been helping out now for the past two days. We are going to be working up until Saturday. By that time we are hoping to be done cleaning out the store, so there is absolutely nothing to do, so whoever comes in and buys this next can just come in and do what they’ve got to do.” To reach reporter Amanda Purcell, call 518-828-1616 ext. 2500, or send an email to, or tweet to @amandajpurcell.

systems, or melanoma. The law will take effect Jan. 1. The Firemen’s Association of the State of New York put together an insurance program for fire departments across the state, partnering with Hartford Insurance Company, which will offer insurance for certain types of cancer for $225 a year per eligible firefighter. “These costs would push a lot of the local fire departments and towns over their tax cap,” said Columbia County Treasurer PJ Keeler. “It’s another unfunded mandate. Fire departments have enough problems with recruiting and retaining people.” The county has about 900 to 1,000 firefighters — though not all may be eligible for the program. It’s possible, Keeler said, that older members of departments, who no longer participate in interior firefighting, will be eligible for the insurance coverage. Keeler, who is a firefighter with the A.B. Shaw Fire Company in Claverack, presented an idea to the Columbia County Board of Supervisors at its full board meeting Wednesday to help fire departments

Runway From A1

“There are a lot of substantial transverse cracks on the runway, with some occasional longitudinal cracking occurring as well,” said Columbia County Engineering Director Dean Knox. “All hot-mix asphalt pavements, be they on airports or public highways, have an average lifespan of about 15 to 20 years, so we are at the upper limit of the lifespan of our existing hot-mix asphalt runway pavement.” The project consists primarily of milling some of the runway pavement and resurfacing it with new layers of pavement; replacing the existing runway edge lighting with new LED runway lighting; replacing a few of the existing airfield guidance signs; and replacing the existing RW 3 end navigational aid called the Precision

the insurance. Fire departments do not have to participate in FASNY’s program, but the state must approve any insurance departments choose to use. Eligible firefighters can access their benefits as soon as the law takes effect Jan. 1. Firefighters who become eligible for the coverage after Jan. 1 will be able to access benefits a month after their eligibility. The program will provide lump-sum benefits — an amount based on the severity of the cancer — $6,250 for less severe cases and $25,000 for more severe cases. The money is drawn from a pool of $50,000 a firefighter, which would be available if the particular firefighter has more than one cancer diagnosis during his or her career, according to a statement from FASNY. Firefighters will also receive a flat $1,500 a month for 36 months should they become completely disabled. In the event of death, beneficiaries will receive $50,000, according to FASNY.

The DOT does the right thing As the construction of a roundabout on the Columbia County side of the Rip Van Winkle Bridge gets underway in earnest, the state Department of Transportation set an example of how a government agency can work with localities to make a complex process run smoothly for all concerned. Two days ago in this column, we took the DOT to task for sending trucks on a 9-mile sojourn through Hudson to avoid the construction zone and back again over already congested city truck routes and, topping that off, failing to tell city officials

about the detour plan. Today, we are praising the DOT for working with Hudson Mayor Rick Rector, city Department of Public Works Superintendent Rob Perry and Assemblywoman Didi Barrett, D-106, to come up with a simple solution to this rather circuitous problem. Instead of sending trucks through Hudson so they can get to the Rip Van Winkle Bridge, the loop at the intersection of Route 9G and Route 23 will be widened so trucks can make the turnaround more easily, bypass the existing heavily traveled truck routes and eliminate a

convoluted 9-mile detour. Although the roundabout project is less than two weeks old, the first sign of potential trouble was visible Thursday as slowed-down traffic in the single lane to the Route 9G-Route 23 intersection and fast-moving traffic on the Route 9G north ramp attempted to merge. The DOT’s action Thursday will help reduce the chance of accidents and preserve safety for motorists entering the construction zone. It also sets a positive example for admitting a mistake was made and moving with all possible speed to make things right.


An innate ethics issue in the House The Washington Post

Even if Rep. Chris Collins is not guilty of the insider-trading charges federal prosecutors lodged against himWednesday, the New York Republican’s story would still be a scandal. The words “how can that be legal?” come to mind in considering that the lawmaker sat on the board of Innate Immunotherapeutics, a pharmaceutical company, while holding a position of public trust directly related to Innate’s interests. Innate is a for-profit, publicly traded company both in Australia, where it is based, and on the U.S. over-the-counter market. Yet, amazingly, Collins was on the company’s board of directors and its largest shareholder, owning some 17 percent of Innate stock. At the same time, he served on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over the pharmaceutical industry in which Collins was deeply invested. Collins’ directorship gave him early access to highly sensitive information, such as the results of a trial for a potentially revolutionary multiplesclerosis drug. Prosecutors allege that, when the company learned that the trial had gone sour, Collins promptly told his son, who, along with

other acquaintances, saved some $768,000 by selling Innate stock before the uninformed public could. Innate’s stock price subsequently dropped 92 percent. Collins, who has asserted his innocence, protested that he never sold any of his own stock. Actually, that would have been impossible; the congressman’s holdings, unlike his son’s, were unavailable for trading at the time. That is the substance of prosecutors’ insider-trading case, backed up by phone and text records. This is not the only instance of suspected insider trading involving Collins. In March 2017 - before the trading for which Collins has been indicted allegedly occurred - the Office of Congressional Ethics began investigating the congressman, ultimately referring him to the House Ethics Committee. The office found “substantial reason to believe” that Collins “shared material nonpublic information in the purchase of Innate stock” and that he “took official actions or requested official actions that would assist” Innate. The Ethics Committee took no action, even though a Daily Beast investigation found “at least four bills that Collins drafted or sponsored that would have directly affected the

drug company.” When the Office of Congressional Ethics issued its findings, Collins defended himself by noting that his success in the private sector appealed to voters, and that with such success, “some issues arise.” Indeed they do. That is why congressional rules should require lawmakers to steer clear of potential conflicts of interest. Currently, the rules fall far short. Tthough the Senate forbids members from serving on boards of publicly held or publicly regulated companies, the House of Representatives does not impose such restrictions. Perhaps this made sense back in the day, when a local bank director got elected to Congress or a lawmaker was invited to sit on the board of a local hospital. But Collins’ case illustrates the danger of such arrangements. The House should forbid all of its members from sitting on the boards of for-profit companies, and the Senate should consider whether its own rules, which permit service on nonprofit boards, need tightening. The temptation for lawmakers to use Congress’ sprawling oversight and legislative powers to advance private interests is too great, and the appearance of impropriety practically unavoidable.

Book underlines axiom that if you want peace, prepare for war WASHINGTON — Scholars have already debated for decades, and will debate for centuries, the role U.S. policies — military, diplomatic, economic — played in bringing the Cold War to endgame and the Soviet Union to extinction. One milestone was Ronald Reagan’s 1983 Strategic Defense Initiative proposal, a technological challenge that could not be met by a Soviet economy already buckling under the combined weight of military spending and socialism’s ignorance. But before SDI there was Ocean Venture ‘81, initiated by Reagan as president-elect. The protracted strategy, of which this enormous operation — 15 nations’ navies, 250 ships, more than 1,000 aircraft — was a harbinger, came to be referred to by some Soviets as the “Lehman strategy.” In “Oceans Ventured: Winning the Cold War at Sea,” John Lehman, a Navy aviator who was secretary of the Navy during Reagan’s first six years, explains the Navy’s role in the “forward strategy” that implemented Reagan’s Cold War policy. Reagan explained the policy when asked about it in 1977: “We win and they lose, what do you think of that?” Among Reagan’s early actions — in addition to reinstating the MX missile and B-1 bomber programs that President Carter had suspended — was to increase by 11 percent Carter’s fiscal 1981 Navy budget, and increasing by 15 percent the fiscal 1982 request. By 1980, there was rough nuclear parity, and the Soviets, with 280 divisions, had superiority of land forces. Reagan campaigned on building the U.S. Navy to 600 ships and using it for purposes beyond merely keeping sea lanes open to deliver supplies for land forces. Those purposes included signaling U.S. confidence and ambition — what Lehman calls a “combat-credible forward naval presence” — in order to



WILL ratchet up psychological pressure on Soviet leaders. So, in the autumn of Reagan’s first year, Ocean Venture ‘81 surged U.S. naval power into what the Soviet Union had considered its maritime domain, especially the Norwegian and Barents Seas. (And eventually under the Arctic ice pack, where the Soviets had hoped to hide nuclear ballistic missile submarines.) By dispersing Ocean Venture ‘81 ships when Soviet satellites were overhead, the arrival of a large flotilla in northern waters was an unnerving surprise for Moscow. This “transformative” operation, Lehman writes, “came as a thunderclap to the Soviets, who had never seen such a NATO exercise on their northern doorstep.” “In preceding years,” he says, “during the hopeful pursuit of detente and arms control by Presidents Ford and Carter, such robust NATO activity would have been unthinkable, as provocative to the Soviets.” Provocation was a risk worth running, but a real risk: “The Soviets were particularly fearful of being attacked under cover of a forward U.S. exercise. Why? Because their own doctrine was to use military exercises to mask surprise invasions,” as with Poland in 1981. Soviet doctrine’s “central concept was a high-speed offensive launched [against NATO] under the cover of military exercises in East Germany and Czechoslovakia.” Lehman says that in 1986, with Mikhail Gorbachev inching crabwise toward

acknowledging the Soviet Union’s terminal sclerosis, “the most delicate period of the Reagan naval strategy began.” Reagan would continue to deploy and demonstrate the multiplying American military proficiencies, but would avoid a triumphalism that might provoke an anti-Gorbachev coup by the humiliated Soviet military. By the end of 1986, with the Soviets having learned that they could not interfere with U.S. aircraft carriers operating in Norwegian fjords, the Soviet general staff told Gorbachev that they could not defend the nation’s northern sector without tripling spending on naval and air forces there. Thus did the Cold War end because Reagan rejected the stale orthodoxy that the East-West military balance was solely about conventional land forces in central Europe, so NATO’s sea power advantage was of secondary importance. Today’s naval problems posed by a rising China, particularly in the South China sea, are unlike the problem of hastening the Soviet decline. Today’s U.S. ships are more capable than ever, but too few for comfort, as Lehman’s reader will realize when they consider what only the Navy can do. In the movie “A Few Good Men,” a furious Col. Nathan Jessup (Jack Nicholson) exclaimed to his courtroom tormentors — Navy officers — words that are actually true regarding almost all civilians in this age of complex professional military establishments configured for myriad and rapidly evolving threats: “You have no idea how to defend a nation.” Lehman’s book is a rare window on that world, and a validation of the axiom that if you want peace, prepare for war.

The excuse for reckless violence The Washington Post

The surveillance video from the parking lot of the Circle A in Clearwater, Florida, leaves little to the imagination: Britany Jacobs and two of her children were waiting in a car for her boyfriend, Markeis McGlockton, and their 5-year-old son to return from a snack run last month. Another man, identified as Michael Drejka, approached the car and began to berate Jacobs for parking in a handicap spot. Hearing the commotion, McGlockton emerged from the store and shoved Drejka to the ground. He had just taken a step away when Drejka pulled out a gun and shot him in the chest. McGlockton then ran into the convenience store, where he bled to death as his 5-year-old son stood screaming beside him. There is no question that Drejka fired the killing shot. Yet a day later, Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced that - thanks to Florida’s “stand your ground”

law - Drejka would not be arrested. Under the law, anyone who “reasonably believes” that deadly force is necessary “to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm” does not have a duty to retreat. As experts have pointed out, the “stand your ground” defense might not apply in Drejka’s case: The video footage clearly shows McGlockton backing away when he was shot, and Florida prosecutors are reviewing the case to determine if charges should be filed. That should be given serious consideration. But Gualtieri’s decision not to arrest Drejka highlights the many problems with these laws, which are on the books in 25 states. Supporters of the laws argue that they make communities safer. In fact, mounting evidence suggests just the opposite. A 2016 article in Epidemiologic Reviews found that “stand your ground” laws are correlated with higher homicide rates. Similarly, a Rand

Corp. review found “moderate evidence” that the laws result in increased rates of homicide. Because perceptions of risk are often based on biases, these laws can also exacerbate racial disparities in criminal justice: A 2015 study examining Florida’s law found that it had a “quantifiable racial bias,” with higher conviction rates in cases with white victims compared with those with nonwhite victims. It may not just be a coincidence in this case that the shooter is white and the victim African American. More than six years after George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, this tragic incident has brought national attention to the issue yet again. There are growing movements in multiple states to amend or repeal “stand your ground” laws. State legislatures should reinstate the duty to retreat before more people are endangered by laws that tell people to shoot first and think later.

Desperate fight to save homes as Holy fire explodes to 18,137 acres By Ruben Vives and Alene Tchekmedyian Los Angeles Times (TNS)

LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. — As flames flickered behind Ana Tran’s McVicker Canyon home, she and her friend rushed to their car and sped past firefighters who were heading toward the blaze. Thick black smoke billowed above homes and cars blanketed in pinkish fire retardant. The residents, like many others, made a frantic escape Thursday after winds picked up in Lake Elsinore and pushed the raging Holy fire within feet of homes. The blaze had ravaged more than 18,000 acres in the Cleveland National Forest and had spread into Riverside County as on Friday morning. While the U.S. Forest Service said that no additional homes had been lost — at least 12 structures were destroyed earlier — the wildfire was only 5 percent contained.

Christopher Paul Ortega, 20, of Glendora, and Santino Francisco Gnaulati, 21, of Covina, each face one felony count of arson of a structure or forest. Sheriff’s deputies and prosecutors say the men, who have pleaded not guilty, started the fire near Highway 39 in the San Gabriel Mountains north of Glendora early Tuesday. Firefighters quickly got a handle on the blaze, which burned a quarter of an acre. If convicted, Ortega and Gnaulati face up to six years in state prison. They are due back in court later this month.

Members of the Kinderhook Reformed Church recently partnered with REACH mission trips for a work camp. REACH is an inter-denominational organization whose mission is to assist elderly, disabled and low income homeowners with basic repairs to their homes, making them safer and more accessible. There is no cost to the homeowner. Local youth and adults from the Kinderhook area packed up their tools and headed off to New Berlin in July. Once there, the group joined approximately 500 hundred staff, leaders and youth in repairing houses throughout the week. At night the campers ate and slept in at a local high school and had evening programs with worship, music and games. The work embraced spending quality time with the families, building relationships as well as fixing homes. For information about how to participate with the Kinderhook Reformed Church on its next mission trip to Newfane in 2019, call the church at 518-758-6401.

Memories are just a point and shoot away I was going through my desk the other day and came across a packet of negatives. The long strips that had five or six negative images of pictures I had printed back in the ancient days of cameras that used film brought back distant memories. Almost everybody today carries a camera with them all the time. The smartphone has singlehandedly killed off the camera and film industry. I’m always pulling mine out and taking pictures of everything I find interesting or useful. I took a picture the other day of the mouthwash The Queen wanted. At the drugstore, I pulled out my phone, looked at the picture and was able



BROOKS to come home with the very product she wanted. After the drugstore, I stopped at a local thrift shop and saw something I thought she might be interested in so I took a picture of it and texted it to her. I always have hundreds of

attachment and flash bulbs or flash cubes, which plugged into the camera top. If you got serious about taking pictures, you bought a 35 mm camera with an adjustable lens, a light meter, a telescopic lens, a close-up lens, a flash gun and a tripod. You needed a bag about the size of a small suitcase to carry all this junk around. No matter what kind of camera you used, when you had taken the number of pictures on the roll of film in your camera, you had to open the camera, take out the roll of film, reload the camera with a fresh roll, then take your film to the drugstore or mail it to Kodak to have it developed.

There were even little booths in parking lots where you could drive up to and drop your film off. In a week or so, your pictures were ready and you went and picked up the fat envelope, opened it and got to see your masterpieces for the first time. The envelope contained your pictures and negatives so if you liked a particular picture, you could take the negative of that picture to the drugstore and get another print of that picture made. When you got your pictures home, you supposedly put them in photo albums. Most of mine wound up in shoeboxes in the closet. Despite my best intentions to write information about who was in the picture

or where it was taken, very few of them got the who, what and where written on them. So now, on the very rare occasions I thumb through a box of them, I have no idea who the people or places are. Such are the things memories are made of.

Reach Dick Brooks at



pictures in my phone I can call up at a moment’s notice. Back in the day (a useful phrase I find I’m using more and more), you needed to have a camera and film to take a picture. Most folks had a basic pointand-shoot camera you could purchase at most drug stores or at one of the big-box stores of the time — Newberry’s, Woolworth’s, Montgomery Wards or Sears. Next, you needed film to fit the camera you bought. Most of the cameras I had used Kodak 126 film. You chose color or black-and-white and the number of pictures you wanted — usually 12 or 24 pictures per roll. If you were going to take pictures inside, you needed a flash

Keyes drops the hammer on Chiefs


By Brian Radewitz Columbia-Greene Media

KANSAS CITY — If anyone was taking a nap during the third quarter of the Houston Texans against Kansas City Chiefs preseason football game on Thursday night, Chatham High graduate Josh Keyes woke them up. Keyes delivered a massive hit on Chiefs’ Kerwynn Williams, who caught a pass over the middle from Matt McGloin. With all of the talk about the new helmet rule, Keyes showcased how to deliver a clean hit on a receiver. “From the view that I had of it, just from the sideline, I definitely think he made an effort to try to hit him with his shoulder,” Houston head coach Bill O’Brien said at the postgame press conference. “I think obviously the officials saw it the same way. We will see more detail in the film, but I thought that that was what I saw.” Keyes had a standout night for the Texans, recording five tackles — three solos — which was good enough to be tied for second most on the defense. Keyes is new to the Texans, but has seen action with a number of teams since entering the league in 2015, including Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Los Angeles (Chargers), Kansas City and Cleveland. Anyone who has followed his

progress wouldn’t be surprised of the former Panthers’ performance on Thursday. “It’s something that we’ve been seeing for a long time and now we get to see it in live action,” Houston QB Deshaun Watson told Texans writer Drew Dougherty.

“It wasn’t a surprise for us, but it was a big hit — it was a great hit. Of course we’ll watch film on it and laugh about it.” Keyes described the play to Dougherty, saying, “Basically the quarterback looked my way, I saw the receiver coming in, I just put

my shoulders down and I hit the running back.” The Texans ended up winning the preseason opener, 17-10, and next face San Francisco on Aug. 18 at home.

Hudson claims boys summer league hoops crown By Tim Martin Columbia-Greene Media

GREENPORT — The Hudson boys basketball team showed the kind of explosive unit it can be when clicking on all cylinders during the championship game of the Columbia-Greene Summer Basketball League on Thursday at Columbia-Greene Community College. Down 14 points in the first half to arch rival Catskill, the Bluehawks went to work, outscoring the Cats 18-5 in the final six minutes of the first half, then going on a 36-17 run in the second to post a

61-43 victory and win the summer league title. Hudson earned a trip to the finals by grinding out a 47-44 semifinal victory over a tough Coxsackie-Athens team earlier in the evening. Catskill got to the finals by beating Saugerties, 60-43, in Thursday’s other semifinal. Hudson wraps up the summer season with a perfect 10-0 record, while Catskill closes with a 9-1 mark. Hudson varsity assistant Tyrone Hedgepeth served as head coach of the Bluehawks for most of the summer season and couldn’t have

been prouder of the team’s effort. “It was a grind for the simple fact that Catskill is a well-coached team and Andy Gonzalez does a great job with the guys in the summer. They play hard for him,” Hedgepeth said. “I’d like to give a big shout out to him because he gives up a lot of his summer to coach these guys and I respect that. It was tough, though, coming off one game and then coming back and playing another one 12 minutes later against a quality team like Catskill. “Our guys dug in, they came though and I’m just so glad they

believed in themselves, they believed in the system and what we were trying to do and the most important thing, they played unselfish. That gave us an opportunity to work on some things on the defensive end. I know we can score, but on the defensive end, that’s what pretty much won our game.” Catskill came out on fire in the title game, rolling to a 10-2 lead over Hudson, six minutes in. The Bluehawks narrowed the gap to 12-7, but Catskill ran off nine straight points to widen its lead See LOCAL B5

Lieutenant Jason DeAngelis is taking over the reigns as DEC’s Region 4 Division of Law Enforcement ECO supervisor covering Columbia and Rensselear Counties. Lt. Liza Bobseine, who has done an outstanding job in the zone across the river, has transferred to the Albany/Schenectady Zone. Lt. DeAngelis was most recently an ECO in Montgomery County where he lived and worked out of Duanesburgh for 10 years until his promotion earlier this month. DeAngelis, 42, is married and the father of two girls and one boy. He enjoys taking the family fishing and camping. Born and raised in Richmond County, the youngest of three brothers, DeAngelis joined his father and uncles in their avid pursuit of deer hunting and fishing. After years of hunting whitetail deer with them in the Catskills, DeAngelis has spent his time deer hunting in the Adirondacks for the past 15 years. As a youth, he spent summers in Delaware County, roaming the woods of Deposit, scouting for deer and other game. He received a bachelor’s degree in anthropology and biology and studied conservation and ecology in Botswana. Lt. DeAngelis began his career in law enforcement in 2001 and was a New York City Police Officer for nearly three years. He was a graduate of NYPD’s “9/11” Academy. In 2003 he fulfilled his dream of becoming an ECO and graduated DEC’s 15th Basic Police Academy. He was assigned as an ECO in Richmond County and after four years, transferred to the Montgomery/Schenectady County sector in 2007. During his 10-plus years there, DeAngelis became the local ECO known for his concentration on significant fish and wildlife offenses as well as quality environmental arrests. One notable case in Montgomery County in 2011, involved the jacking of 10 buck deer. His persistence in the investigation, arrest and conviction of members of a deer jacking ring is a testament to his commitment to the fight against serious wildlife crime. Always seeking ways to improve his capabilities to get the job done, he continued relevant training and became a member of the Division’s Chemical Immobilization Team (CIT). I personally observed his expertise in that role as he successfully pulled off a difficult shot, tranquilizing the infamous “Albany Bear” back in 2013. Lt. DeAngelis is a Division Firearms Instructor, a member of the Special Operations Group (SOG) and the Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT). In 2015, then ECO DeAngelis was elected to be the Director of the ECO and Investigator Union. During his nearly three years as a PBA director, Lt. DeAngelis successfully lobbied for the heart bill and, most recently, succeeded in getting the ECO 3/4 Disability Bill passed in both houses awaiting the Governor’s signature to become law. Fiercely independent and an ardent patriot who fully supports our fundamental right to hunt, fish, trap and use firearms in those and other pursuits, Lt. DeAngelis is a great fit for Columbia and Rensselear Counties. Please join me as I congratulate Lt. Jason DeAngelis on his promotion. I urge your support for his success as he takes on the important role of ECO supervisor in Columbia and Rensselear Counties. See OUTDOORS B5

Morales shines in USSSA All-American games By Justin Porreca Columbia-Greene Media

After qualifying for the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) All-American Games in Florida in June, 10-year-old Cairo native Demetrio Morales competed against the best baseball players from across the nation in his age group this week. “It’s amazing,” Morales said. “It’s tough competition. Facing the best hitters in the country is a great challenge and gives me an opportunity to see where I stand with the skills that I’ve learned.” Morales, who plays for the Columbia Clippers and shines as a pitcher, got the oppportunity to start game one of Pool Play against the Midwest Region on Monday and tossed 3 1/3 innings of shutout baseball without allowing a walk and striking out four batters. The USSSA All-American


Greene County native Demetrio Morales stands in the batter’s box for the Northeast Region at the USSSA All-American Games in Viera, Florida.

Games are being played at the new USSSA Space Coast Complex in Viera, Florida and the fields are turf, which has presented a new challenge for the Greene County product. “Playing on turf has its challenges because I’m used to playing on dirt fields,” he said. “The ball comes fast on a hop, so you have to be ready to move in either direction.” In games two and three Morales was used primarily in the field and at the plate, where he is hitting .400. The 10-year-old also got the opportunity to play first base, which he stated was a fun experience for him. On Thursday, Morales took the mound for bracket play against the Southeast Region. He finished the tournament with two hits in six at-bats with a walk.

Giants RB Barkley makes dazzling impression The Sports Xchange Saquon Barkley didn’t wait long to make an impression with the New York Giants. Barkley lived up to the hype befitting a No. 2 overall draft pick in New York’s preseason opener, rumbling 39 yards on his first carry in a 20-10 loss to the visiting Cleveland Browns. The former Penn State standout finished with 43 yards on five rushes but it was his opening run, in which he deftly cut back and eluded multiple defenders before showing an outstanding burst, that likely had New York fans salivating. “Just a run, let’s not go berserk yet, alright?” observed Giants quarterback Eli Manning with a smile, per “It was a good run. Offensive line blocked things well. Had a good cut-back. Good play.” The preseason matchup featured a juicy subplot with Barkley going up against the Browns, who used the No. 1 overall pick to take quarterback


New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning (10) hands off to running back Saquon Barkley (26) during the first half against the Cleveland Browns at MetLife Stadium.

Baker Mayfield. New York’s ground game was a train wreck last season and Barkley was viewed as the perfect fit after amassing 1,271 yards and 18 touchdowns last

season for the Nittany Lions. He also showed he was a threedown back with 54 receptions. The 6-foot-3, 233-pound Barkley continued to rocket up draft boards after lighting up

the 2018 NFL Combine with a spectacular workout, including a 4.40 40-yard dash and a 41-inch vertical jump. Following his debut, Barkley hardly sounded like a rookie,

telling reporters that he didn’t experience the expected pregame jitters. “It felt weird, the feelings are hard to describe,” Barkley told reporters, per “I really didn’t get that nervous for this game. I have been preparing for this moment my whole life, I was just excited to get out there and show my team what I have. I only got a couple of carries, but I wanted to show that I’m willing to get the gritty yards, break big plays, and be productive in this offense.” Barkley also sounded like a veteran in praising his blockers on his eye-opening first NFL carry. “The offensive line did a great job of creating space and creating a hole,” Barkley said. “I was able to have patience and (tight end) Evan (Engram) did an unbelievable job of blocking on the backside, and I was able to burst through the hole, make a guy miss and get up field.”

Judge behind schedule as Yankees in need of right-handed power By Kristie Ackert New York Daily News

Aaron Judge walked over to home plate at Yankee Stadium and pretended to hit before sprinting out of the box. It was just a running drill for Judge, because two weeks after he suffered a chip fracture on his right wrist, the Yankees slugger has not been pain-free enough to pick up a bat. But Aaron Boone was encouraged. “Aaron was out running bases today, continuing with his range of motion, which continues to improve,” the Yankees skipper said before the series-opening game against the Rangers in the Bronx. “Not at the point where he’s picking up a bat yet, but I feel like we’re getting closer to that point. He’s going to see a doctor tonight so we should have a better update.” The Yankees were initially optimistic that Judge would be

swinging a week after he was hit on the wrist by a 93 mile per hour pitch from Royals pitcher Jakob Junis. He is now a week behind that schedule, and with Gary Sanchez also on the disabled list trying to work his way back, the Yankees’ lineup is decidedly light on righthanded power hitters. That was evident last weekend as the Yankee lineup was silenced by the Red Sox. It was also a concern before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline and had the Yankees kicking the tires on possible right-handed hitting outfielders as some insurance for this stretch. There are still some possible targets out there whom the Yankees could deal for before the Aug. 30 waiver trade deadline. Andrew McCutchen makes some sense for the Yankees. The quickest and best fit, however, would probably be a lot closer to home. As it always

seems to happen, however, it is complicated by the fact it would involve the Mets, because a simple and cheap solution would be a deal for Jose Bautista. Sources with both teams, however, have said that deals with the crosstown rivals are very difficult to work out. A Yankees source said the team had no interest in Bautista. Of course, the Yankees still have Giancarlo Stanton, who hit his sixth career grand slam to clinch the sweep in Chicago. Aaron Hicks, who can switch hit, also seems to be coming into his own in their lineup, hitting .302 with three homers and seven RBIs over his last 13 games. The Yankees also have Neil Walker with some potential right-handed power, and the Bombers brought up Luke Voit, just acquired at the deadline from the Cardinals, for some insurance there. The Yankees seem optimistic that with a lighter schedule

for the rest of this month, not facing a team currently over .500 until next month’s trip out west to face off against the surging A’s and Mariners, that they can hold on until they get their own big right-handers back in the lineup. The news on Sanchez, who is on the disabled list with a groin injury for the second time in the last three months, was encouraging this week. He was scheduled to run on the field Thursday and continue working on his running in Tampa over the weekend. He is expected to join the team in New York on Sunday night to begin working on catching. And after watching as Judge ran the bases Thursday before the game, it was clear Boone thinks that he will have his right-handed power bats back soon enough. In the Yankees’ initial announcement about Judge’s injury, the team said that it would be possible for

him to swing a bat in a game situation three weeks from the day of the injury. While that seems unlikely to be in a major league game, the Yankees seem to still be holding out hope for a possible minorleague rehab game. “Because it’s, ‘once the pain is out of there, it’s go.’ I believe it’ll move fast from there because he’s been able to lift, he’s been able to do all his conditioning,” Boone said explaining his optimism for having Judge back sooner rather than later. “We just gotta get to that point where the pain is all out of there at that end, then he gets a bat in his hand and it progresses quickly from there.” At this point, their return can’t be quick enough for Boone and the Yankees.

After breakthrough win, Elliott as good a bet as any at Michigan Field Level Media Chase Elliott showed up for his Friday morning news conference at Michigan International Speedway still smiling. Five days after earning his first career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win, who could blame him? The best part for the quietnatured 22-year-old might be that he’s absolutely a favorite to win again. This weekend. The two-mile super-fast Michigan oval – where the series races Sunday in the Consumers Energy 400 (2:30 ET, NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) – has long been one of Elliott’s finest tracks. He has, by far, the best driver rating here and has never finished outside the top 10 in five starts. He was – either remarkably or painstakingly, depending on how you look at it – runner-up in his first three races at the track. His ninth-place finish in June’s rain-shortened race in the No. 9 Chevrolet is his worst finish at the track. For it all, his

average finish is an amazing 4.6. Not only do Elliott’s stats earn him that good Michigan vibe, but his victory last weekend was so popular, former Hendrick Motorsports teammate and current NBC television analyst Dale Earnhardt Jr. started referring to Elliott as “Elvis.” “I think he needs to retire from giving nicknames,” Elliott said laughing. “For some reason he has always thought I look like Elvis and I really don’t know why. I know he has a little bit of an obsession with Elvis. He has an Elvis room in his house, which is kind of weird. “I’ve been in that room before and you wake up and there is this Elvis man staring at you. I don’t know if he just has a thing for Elvis or what.” Whatever Earnhardt’s motivation in the name, Elliott is certainly NASCAR’s current version of a beloved icon. His victory on the historic Watkins Glen road course last weekend formally turned positive potential into great result.

The former Xfinity Series champion had eight runner-up showings and eight third-place showings in his three-year fulltime Cup career prior to last weekend. That first victory was a long time coming – for him and for his H-U-G-E fan base. But Elliott never doubted it would come. The circumstances just hadn’t been right yet, he figured.

“As you move forward they don’t get any easier,” he said. “I definitely feel a lot of relief to have finally won a race after being so close so many times. I certainly feel like I have some more confidence that I haven’t had leading into a race weekend, which is nice, but that doesn’t mean things are going to get any easier, but I think that just a lot of relief for myself and

my team. “I’m excited to see where we go moving forward whether it gets better or worse I don’t know, but I feel good about it and that is all that matters.” And so do plenty of others. His father, NASCAR Hall of Fame member Bill Elliott, was spotting for him on The Glen and joined him at Victory Lane. Bill Elliott himself was a multiseason NASCAR Most Popular Driver before Earnhardt’s 15-year run with the honor, and it felt too many people like Earnhardt’s retirement from full-time Cup competition in 2017 was a passing of the torch for the honor to the younger Elliott. Yet even in the midst of Elliott’s career-defining day, it was also, simply, a proud dadand-son moment. It has been 54 years since a Cup driver (Billy Wade) scored his first and second wins in consecutive races. NASCAR Hall of Fame member Ned Jarrett did it in 1959. And considering

Elliott’s past work at Michigan, there’s probably no venue on the schedule that offers better odds for him to make that happen. “I hope so,” Elliott said of a second straight win, allowing a grin. “This has been a pretty good track for us in general. “That’s not to say this weekend will go good. I feel like we were better here my first two years than we were in the spring race this year, unfortunately. So, yeah, I don’t know. I hope this weekend goes good and I think this weekend will be kind of a gauge of where we stack up for some of these race tracks that are coming up at Indy and not so much Darlington, but here and Indy and Vegas and some of the 1.5-mile and 2-milers coming up. We didn’t stack up very well here in the spring race. “I think we’ve gotten a little better at these style tracks since then, so hopefully. We’ll see.” And all of NASCAR will be looking.

Local From B1

to 21-7. At that point, coach Hedgepeth switched up Hudson’s defense and the move paid off quickly. With Jaylen Hartfield pouring in nine points and Dayquan Griffin adding five, Hudson closed the deficit to 26-25 by halftime. “We were playing a zone, a 3-2, the 2-1-2 and we were playing a little box,” Hedgepeth said. “I saw that it wasn’t working and it kind of had everyone playing lazy a little bit, so my thought was let’s go man-toman so each man has to be accountable for their guy, plus helping out. So we changed and went man-to-man and

that changed the whole game around.” Catskill scored the first three points of the second half, but from that point on it was all Hudson. The Bluehawks took their first lead of the game, 3130, on a Griffin basket with 16:12 left in the game and then turned up the defensive intensity, limiting the cats to just three field goals in the final 20 minutes. Lavon Fernandez stepped up big time for Hudson, scoring 19 second-half points to finish with a game-high 23. Griffin added 15, Paul Gerido had 12 and Hartfield nine. Justice Brantley led Catskill with 20 points. Melik Christian had nine, Devon Haye five, Logan Scott four, Kellen Gibbs three and Vonis Donely two. “It’s good to beat a

quality team and Catskill is a quality team,” Hedgepeth said. “Everybody in the conference knows that Catskill is one of the top teams, so to beat them says something about us. We know if we can beat this team we can beat a lot of other teams that come in. I’ll sleep good tonight.”

SEMIFINALS Hudson’s road to the championship game was not an easy one as Coxsackie-Athens gave the Bluehawks all they could handle and then some. The Indians led by as much as seven in the first half and held a 24-23 edge at the intermission. C-A was still up, 38-37, with 9:16 to play in the game, but Hudson outscored the Indians 10-6 the rest of the way to escape with the victory. Fernandez paced Hudson

with 21 points. Leviticus Johnson had nine, Griffin seven, Noah Hedgepeth six and Hartfield four. Gil Bell had 10 points for C-A. Kane Schrader added nine, Aiden Boehm had eight, Tyler Oravsky seven, Josh Kiefer six and Jaylen Buckner four. The start of Thursday’s opening semifinal game between Catskill and Saugerties was delayed by a half an hour because the Sawyers were late getting to the gym, but once the game began the Cats quickly seized control, racing to a 32-14 lead by halftime and never looking back. Brantley had a monster game for the Cats, pouring in 32 points. Christian had eight, Gibbs seven, Haye six, Donely four and Scott two.

Friend lends her wedding dress but isn’t invited to wedding My co-worker and supposed friend asked if she could borrow my wedding dress because she thought it was so beautiful. I was thrilled to lend it to her and paid for the alterations ($200 plus) as her wedding present. I acDEAR ABBY companied her to her fittings and helped her plan her wedding for approximately 100 friends and family. The kicker: My husband and I were not invited to the wedding, and when she returned my gown, it had lipstick on it and cake down the front. It wasn’t even in a bag — she just handed it to me. What should I think about this? Flabbergasted in Florida

would you suggest I do in order to help her improve her body image? Supportive in New Hampshire

You should conclude that your co-worker and “friend” is someone with no class whatsoever. Have the dress cleaned and packaged so it can be properly stored if you intend to keep it, and give HER the bill. Then distance yourself far enough from this person that if she asks for any more favors, you can comfortably say no.

I am going through a rough divorce. I’ll spare you the details, but suffice it to say, I had to get an order of protection against my soonto-be ex. I originally intended to keep my husband’s last name because we have a child together and I want my last name to be the same as my child’s. The thing is, Abby, I’m so disgusted with his behavior that the thought of keeping his last name makes me sick to my stomach. What should I do? Single Soon In Ohio


Family Circus

Other than continuing to reassure her that in your eyes she’s beautiful, there isn’t much you can do long-distance. However, there is plenty SHE can do. She should discuss her fixation with a doctor who can explain what a healthy weight should be for someone her height and build. If her problem is all in her head, it’s possible she needs counseling for body dysmorphia, a disorder in which people of normal weight are convinced they are heavy. It’s not uncommon. Classic Peanuts

I have been in a relationship with my girlfriend, who lives in her native Germany, for almost two years. We met online thanks to a mutual online friend of mine and school friend of hers. My girlfriend struggles with her body image, and I’m not sure how to help other than call her beautiful often. She’s thin and looks fine by “American standards,” as she puts it, but for a German she is larger than most, which is why she thinks she’s fat and ugly, despite the fact that she’s slim and pretty. What


Many parents have different names than their children. If keeping your almost-ex-husband’s last name makes you sick to your stomach now, in a few years you may have a major case of indigestion. Change your name when the divorce is final because the longer you wait to do it, the more complicated it may become.

The link between calcium supplements and late-onset dementia Please comment on the link between calcium supplements and late-onset dementia. I have taken calcium and vitamin supplements for 20 years, on the advice of my primary practitioners, to TO YOUR prevent osteoporosis. About GOOD HEALTH a month ago, I stopped the supplements and started drinking more skim milk and eating low-fat cheese. My reasons for doing this: I learned there is a link between the calcium supplements and dementia; I have a family history of late-onset dementia. I recently had an MRI to check for an acoustic nerve tumor (not found), but was told that the MRI showed that I had changes in my white matter that “likely represent chronic small vessel ischemic change,” which I understand is linked to risk of dementia. I also am heterozygous for the apolipoproteins e3/e4, which is associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s. I am 62 years old, take no prescription medicines, but have slightly elevated cholesterol.


A 2016 paper in the journal Neurology identified an increase in dementia risk in women taking calcium supplements, if the woman had a history of stroke or had white matter lesions, like the type you described on your MRI results. This result is in keeping with previous studies, which have suggested that there is an increase in heart disease among those taking supplemental calcium, but not in those who have high dietary calcium. While I am cautious about accepting new research, this particular study, combined

with previous work, makes me agree with your decision to stop calcium supplements. Given your family history, your MRI results and your genetic analysis I think doing what you can with lifestyle to reduce dementia risk is worth considering. This includes eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, getting regular physical exercise, having strong social connections and engaging in intellectual activity. With your elevated cholesterol (and the MRI findings), you should discuss taking a statin with your doctor, as it may help prevent blockages in the arteries of your heart and brain.

Hagar the Horrible

There are people who claim that the drugs used to kill death-row prisoners cause pain and suffering. Are there no drugs that can be used that could be considered humane? In the United States, the question of whether the death penalty is “cruel and unusual” is a constitutional issue that continues to be addressed by the courts. The question of whether it is ethical for a physician to be involved with it is one for physician organizations and for individual physicians to decide. This is of importance because those who have the expertise render a patient unconscious, and who would best enable as humane a death as possible in such circumstances, are ethically obliged not to participate. I believe physician participation in executions in any form is inherently unethical and antithetical to the physician’s calling.

Horoscope By STELLA WILDER Born today, you have been endowed with tremendous ability — and tremendous patience! This combination is rare and is likely to give you the advantage over others who may be equally capable and talented but who are in a hurry to enjoy the success to which they feel they are entitled. You are more than willing to work for your rewards and you never assume that you are entitled to anything. You are fair in all your dealings, and you treat others with respect — while demanding respect in return. You have a strong mind and an able body, and you can apply yourself to all manner of problems and solve them in creative ways. You are not always the most happy-go-lucky individual, as you are subject to rather foul moods upon occasion — but then, who is not? You find it best, when such a mood strikes, to limit your contact with others and work through whatever may have caused you to go to the “dark side.” Once you have recovered, it is usually as if nothing happened at all. Also born on this date are: Chris Hemsworth, actor; Hulk Hogan, wrestler and actor; Alex Haley, author; Pablo Sandoval, baseball player; Steve Wozniak, computer mogul; Joe Rogan, TV host and actor; Mike Douglas, producer and talk-show host; Jerry Falwell, evangelist.
