The Cicero Town Board voted unanimously to keep its police department after an emotionally-charged public hearing was held on the night of Dec. 8 at  the South Bay Fire Department. Of the 40 area residents that stood up to speak, 36 were in favor of keeping the department as is, and opposed the passing of a town law that would have had the future of the department decided by a public referendum. Some of the speakers were upset with the town board for proposing the law, even though the board saw the law as

a potential cost-saving measure during difficult economic times. “I don’t know how the h-- you sat there and said ‘let’s get rid of the police department’….leave my town alone,” said Pat Rizzo, a Cicero resident who said she has lived in the community for 44 years. More than one resident called the possibility of abolishing the police an “insane” idea. Others were concerned about the slower response time for emergencies that might occur if policing was left to the sheriff ’s department. “When the call comes, they are there,” said Cicero resident Frank DeFrancis-

co of of his town’s police. “These gentlemen here who risk their lives every day—we need them.” The slower response time was also cited as one of several reasons the why the law might not be valid according to a lawyer representing the town’s police benevolent association. The attorney provided an eight page statement to the board opposing the proposed law on legal grounds. The majority of the public that spoke seemed very satisfied with their police department. “In this very town you get more than what you pay for in police protection,” said area-resident Joe Caputo.

Perhaps one of the oldest Cicero residents, Ed Zaluski, has lived in the town for 54 years. He agreed. “When you got something good you don’t want to change it,” he said. ““I think we’ve got the finest [police department] in the county. If it ain’t broken you can’t fix it.” After the public hearing the board decided it had heard enough. Rather than pass the proposed law that would have provided for the public referendum before abolishment, it unanimously passed a resolution to “not adopt the local law to abolish the police department.” The audience cheered.

Bielec became known by many as “The Flower Lady,” which Sr. Bill chose as the title of her book. Bielec, now 90, was pleasantly surprised to learn of this written dedication. “I’m astonished really,” she said. “I’m beyond words. I wish I could do more.” When Bielec was a little girl, she befriended an older woman who nurtured a beautiful garden that Bielec admired. One day, Bielec asked her new friend if she could pick a flower to bring home for her mother. The woman said no, told

Opinion Editorial

A cry for help The recent rash of youth crime in the city of Syracuse has people up in arms. The shooting deaths of Henninger High School graduate Kihary Blue, 19, and toddler Rashaad Walker Jr. stunned the entire community. “Enough.” That is the cry of the people who live on these increasingly crime-ridden streets. It’s time to take action so that the families living in these neighborhoods, paralyzed by fear, can have their lives back. But first, we need to understand why this is happening before we can help. There are several risk factors to juvenile crime; causal effects include living in poverty stricken areas that often expose youth to violence and drug abuse very early, getting into “the wrong crowd,” easy access to firearms and broken or unstable families. City Police Chief Frank Fowler confirmed this in his speech to community leaders earlier this month: Youth crime is as much social as it is criminal. Fowler said in order to prevent youth crime, structure has to be provided for young people. Where this is not available at home, military-type schools should be formed to mold children through high school. This would give children the discipline, education and sense of belonging they so desperately need. Local non profit organizations approach the problem from a different angle. They believe the root cause of violence is poverty and are engaged in a long-standing campaign to abate it. Habitat for Humanity, Visions For Change, Home Headquarters and Catholic Charities, to list a few, work on issues such as affordable housing, job training, mental health and education to transition people out of poverty. Every part of the process will have to involve the full commitment of the wider Syracuse community.

Espresso percolates freely starting Sunday During the Civil War, the three-story brick building at 401-403 First St. opened as a general store operated by dry goods dealer William Manly. Some 147 years later – after incarnations as a newspaper office, an auto dealership, a pool hall and floral and gift shops – the historic structure welcomes a new tenant to its 1,520square-foot first floor. The Freedom of Espresso coffee shop celebrates its grand opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 19. Its daily hours will be 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Syracuse-based café chain already does business at four Central New York locations, all of which are Wi-Fi connected. Owner Anna Dobbs opened her first shop in 1995 at 424 Pearl St., in the city. The second shop opened in 2001 in Armory Square, a third in 2004 in the village of Fayetteville, and a fourth in 2007 on Solar Street in the city’s Franklin Square. “Each of the four stores has its own individual personality,” Dobbs said. “We develop

our stores with a respect for the surroundings and with an intent to build community.” FOE roasts its own coffee beans and specializes in its namesake espresso but also sells a few single-origin coffees such as Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. Many customers rave about FOE’s iced mocha slushes. Known in recent years as the Olde Liverpool Shoppes, the building at the corner of First and Tulip streets was purchased in late-2007 by JGB Properties owner Jay Bernhardt. Freedom of Espresso is leasing the space from JGB, which has renovated the Italianate-style building originally erected about 1863. In 2009, JGB partnered with the village of Liverpool to qualify for a $883,302 state grant to support the rehabilitation project, and this summer tenants moved into nine brandnew apartments on the

building’s second and third floors. The village business district now boasts three specialty coffee shops, Sweet Treats at Heid’s, the Café at 407 at Ophelia’s Place and Freedom of Espresso.

experienced sign-makers. They’ll run an RV park, campgrounds, log cabins, a country store, a boat launch and a propane tank exchange. They’ll even help issue hunting and fishing licenses.

Off to the Ozarks!

What about the Clark murder?

Another change on the village business scene took place this month as Salt City Signs closed its shop at 101 Lake Drive after owner Mike Cook (previously known as Mike Bearup) and his wife, Cheryl, decided to move to Flippin, Ark. That’s right, Flippin, Ark.! It’s not a joke or a euphemism for the F-word, but the actual name of a town in the Razorback State where the Cooks will operate a campground named Heart of the Ozarks. While he was here, Mike organized annual Halloween festivals in Washington and Long Branch parks. His heavily decaled pickup truck was a familiar sight rolling down village roads. Heart of the Ozarks will be a much different sort of business for the

The Onondaga County Sheriff ’s Office certainly deserves applause for its swift and efficient effort to solve the murder of 20-yearold Jenni-Lyn Watson last month. Undersheriff Warren Darby was a particularly strong and sturdy presence throughout the search for the aspiring ballerina and the arrest of her longtime boyfriend who’s charged with her Nov. 19 murder. Now we can only hope that deputies will renew their efforts to solve the slaying of 39-year-old Mark Clark who was shot to death on April 21, 2008 in the bedroom of the house he rented at 109 Cleveland St., in the village. The fact that this callous crime remains unsolved is not only disappointing. It’s a disgrace.

Save the earth, buy a real tree I’m of a certain generation — the generation that grew up during the popularization of the artificial Christmas tree. I remember clearly the day I learned my family wouldn’t be getting a real tree for the holidays. I might have been 6 at the time, and as far as I know, nothing else happened that day. My parents had a good reason for going to a fake tree — one of my siblings was allergic to pine. Of course, to a six-yearold, this was hardly an acceptable excuse. But even at that young age, I was mature enough to see right through their promise to make up for it by lighting a few pinescented candles. I don’t think I’m alone in my experience of losing a real tree at a critical age, so when Rob Brown, owner of Brown’s Three B Tree Nursery in Jordan, told me last week that he’d seen a trend among people in their 20s and 30s, my ears perked up. As executive director for the Christmas Tree

Ned Campbell From the editor

Farmers Association of New York, Brown talks to a lot of tree farm owners. From his informal research, he’s gathered that young adults are coming out to tree farms in higher numbers — partially motivated, he suspects, by a desire to be “green.” He pointed out that when you buy a fake tree, it often ends up in the landfill within three years. “Real trees create oxygen,” Brown said. “Artificial trees create nothing.” When my parents first bought a fake tree, one of their reasons was to protect the environment. This logic doesn’t seem to hold up like it used to. “There’s at least one, if not two, trees planted for every one that’s cut down,” Brown said of farms across the state.

Even greener

After talking to

Brown, I stopped by Dusart Nursery in Camillus and asked owner Jim Dusart if he’d noticed the trend of younger buyers. “I see it off and on but I can’t say 100 percent that I see it in a strong way,” Dusart said, noting that most of his customers are his age and up. He did, however, point to another means of “going green.” On top of selling cut trees from farms in Tully and Pulaski, Dusart sells live blue spruces. He had already sold out of them when we talked. “You can take a potted or a bulb tree into the house, decorate it — you don’t keep it in there as long as you would a cut tree — and then you take it out and put it in the ground,” Dusart said When Dusart sells a live tree, he tells his customers to dig a hole as soon as they get home in a place where the soil will not freeze, and to cover it with leaves or a board. When it comes times to plant the tree, they’ll want to be prepared.

“If you’ve got to go out there and shovel off three-feet of snow, do that and plant the tree,” he said. Is there anything greener than digging through snow to plant a tree? So long as you don’t forget to take the lights off first, I can’t think of a more sustainable way to celebrate the season.

Consolidation not always the answer

Although the meeting at times was loud and emotions ran high, it was a tremendous example of civic responsibility and community involvement at its best. By the end of the meeting, Supervisor Boyke and her allies backed down. Residents simply did not buy Supervisor Boyke’s argument that abolishing the police department would result in tax savings without harming public safety.  They also made it clear that they had little faith in the so-called in-depth report of a special police services study group, a report that provided scant data, made no solid recommendations and at best was incomplete. Supervisor Boyke and her deputy, Councilor Jessica Zambrano, have stated that while they were on the campaign trail last year they heard from many town residents who urged them to do away with Cicero’s police department. That is difficult to believe.  I was on that same campaign trail and no one, not one person, told me they wanted the police department abolished. During the years I served as town supervisor I came to appreciate

the value of streamlining government and consolidating services.  There are definitely savings to be had. However, abolishing a police department has a far greater impact than sharing an assessor or codes enforcement director with a neighboring municipality. Still, despite the tremendous turnout and strong support for our town’s police department, several people, including myself, overheard Supervisor Boyke and Councilor Zambrano say they still believe the police matter should, at future some time, be put before voters. I guess sometimes for some people it takes longer to make the right decision.     Chet Dudzinski    Ciceron Town Supervisor 2003-2009

LHS Senior of the Week

Antoinette Esce

By Miranda L. Pennock

This week’s Liverpool High School Senior of the Week is Antoinette Esce, a clarinetist in the Liverpool Symphonic Band. The National Honor Society member is likely better known for the hours she spends at the Liverpool High School pool. As a four-year member and co-captain of the varsity swim team, Esce also swims for the Liverpool Jets Swim Club, works as a lifeguard and teaches swim lessons at the pool. Esce, whose favorite class is calculus, also finds time when she’s not in the pool to offer her services as a volunteer at Crouse Hospital for the last three years and a NOVA Volunteer Ambulance Explorer. With all her medical volunteer experience, it’s only natural she wants to be a doctor.

Manlius welcomes a new restaurant to the village with the opening of Lumiere Bistro, courtesy of Liverpool resident Scott O’Connell. Located at 315 Fayette St. in the Manlius Mart Plaza, the restaurant offers an eclectic variety of entrees, from classic French dishes to pasta to shrimp. “When you go out, not everyone [in the group] wants to have the same type of food, so there are different plates to choose from on the menu,” said owner Scott O’Connell. O’Connell, 42, has been in the restaurant business since high school, when he started out waiting tables at a catering hall. After a 14-year hiatus while he worked in insurance, he returned to the restaurant

O’Connell worked in a number of high-end establishments in Central New York before deciding to open his own restaurant. He chose Manlius for the location because he felt the restaurant’s atmosphere would appeal to local residents. “The restaurant has a cozy, warm atmosphere where you can come for any occasion, whether it is a romantic first date, or you’re getting a babysitter and just getting away for a little while,” O’Connell said. “I’m going for the feel of a bistro you might find nestled in a brownstone near NYU in New York City.” The restaurant seats 26, and will serve a vari-

Honeywell presents plans for lakeshore enhancement Honeywell is preparing to dredge 2.63 million cubic yards of sediment from Onondaga Lake. On Thursday night at the Lakeside Fire D epar tment in G eddes, Honeywell presented its plans for what the lakeshore could look like during and after the cleanup. “I think this is a really exciting project. This is the most visible gateway to our community,” said Dereth Glance, chair of the Onondaga Lake Bottom Community Participation Working Group. The volunteer group was established in August 2009 to be a voice for the community independent of the Department of Environment Conservation and

Honeywell. The enhancement project is included in Honeywell’s cleanup of the lake as mandated by the DEC. Honeywell revealed two conceptual plans – one for 2011 to 2015 and another for after 2016 – that were arrived upon by surveying around 100 people in a series of public meetings. Those meeting revealed a few common threads among community members. “People wanted to protect the view when you’re driving along the lakeshore on I-690,” Glance said. The plan includes planting trees by the lake, but in a way that does not obstruct the view. The plan also calls for a trail that could be accessed by people of all abilities. “For over a decade it’s

been a desire of the community to have an entire ‘loop the lake’ trail,” Glance said. Glance noted expected challenges presented by the lakeshore’s closeness to the highway and the area’s complex underground infrastructure. Plant life will need to be tolerant of road salt and other highway runoff, and trees will need to be selected based on how their roots grow, Glance said. Enhancement of the lakeshore is expected to begin soon. “This is still kind of a draft plan but there’s going to be a lot of activity once the snow melts … initial grasses will be planted in the spring of 2011,” Glance said.

Support our Troops this Holiday Season By Senator John A. DeFrancisco

By Ned Campbell editor@eagle-obsever.com

Are you buying a new cell phone for a family member or friend this holiday season as a gift? Do you have old cell phones lying around the house? Instead of throwing away that used cell phone, or stuffing it in a drawer, I urge you to think twice. By donating that phone to Cell Phones for Soldiers, it can help the men and women serving in the military overseas stay connected with their families. Once again, I kicked off the holiday season this year by calling on Central New Yorkers to support our troops by donating their used cell phones to Cell Phones for Soldiers. Our military men and women make a tremendous sacrifice for all of us. In return, let us show our appreciation and help them stay connected. What better gift to give than to help our troops reach their loved ones. Last year, Central New Yorkers showed an overwhelming amount of support and delivered more than 1,500 phones through this program. The generosity of our community provided 2,200 soldiers with a half hour of talk time each. I am proud to be able to contribute to a worthy cause and to give back to those men and women who make such incredible sacrifice for us all. Local residents can support the collection drive by delivering their used cell phones to my District Office:

800 State Office Building 333 East Washington Stree Syracuse, New York 1320 (315) 428-7632

Cell phones can also be brought to drop-off points at the Information Centers at Shoppingtown Mall, Great Northern Mall, and Carousel Mall, and to Solvay Public Library. The cell phone drive will run through January. Donated phones will be sent to ReCellular, which pays Cell Phones for Soldiers for each phone – enough to provide an hour of talk time to a soldier abroad. About half of the phones ReCellular processes are reconditioned and resold to wholesale companies in more than 40 countries around the world. Phones and components that cannot be refurbished are dismantled and recycled to reclaim materials, including gold, silver and platinum from circuit boards; copper wiring from phone chargers;

Manlius

nickel, iron, cadmium and lead from battery packs; and plastic from phone cases and accessories. Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded by teenagers Robbie and Brittany Bergquist from Norwell, Mass., with $21 of their own money. Since then, the registered 501c3 non-profit organization has raised almost $1 million in donations and distributed more than 500,000 prepaid calling cards to soldiers serving overseas. Through increased fundraising efforts, the Bergquist family hopes to fund new programs, such as providing video phones and prepaid service to allow soldiers abroad to see their families on a regular basis. To find out more about the program, please visit cellphonesforsoldiers.com May you have a happy and joyous holiday season.

cool’ just yet,” he said with a laugh. O’Connell also said he finds it rewarding to see customers enjoy the dishes he personally prepares in the kitchen. His favorite dish: the sautéed chicken breast with wild mushroom risotto, with crème brulee or tiramisu for dessert. While the restaurant opened its doors on Oct. 15, an official grand

opening celebration will not take place until late November. Lunch is served at Lumiere Bistro from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Dinner is from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Brunch is served 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays. For more information, visit lumierebistro.com.

Warriors sweep two titles at Jack Morse Relays By Phil Blackwell pblackwell@cnylink.com As the area high school indoor track and field season got underway, Liverpool managed to snag both portions of last Saturday’s Jack Morse Relays at SUNYCortland by close margins. The Warriors prevailed on the girls side with 55 points, just ahead of Cicero-North Syracuse, who took second with 50 points. Fayetteville-Manilus was third with 45 points. Liverpool was first in the 4x200 relay as Jessica Attaway, Connie Torres, Armani Moore and Tammy

Brodie posted a time of 1:57.81. In the sprint medley relay, Leah Dixon, Ashley Letteney, Kristen Jevis and Shanice Leach held off Auburn, 4:43.90 to 4:44.18, for another title. Attaway and Torres also helped Shae Shenandoah and Farrah Terranova finish second in the 4x400 relay in 4:37.44, while Rachel Putman, Kyla Bills, Ali Whiting and Brianna Inman took third in the mile relay in 24:22.85. Moving to field events, Shenandoah and Breanna Burns both made clearances in the pole vault (14 feet 6 inches overall) to

help Liverpool prevail. The Warriors were fourth in both the long jump (26 feet ¾ inch) and shot put (56 feet 2 ¾ inches), fifth in the triple jump and sixth in the high jump. CNS saw Maria LaMontagne post a 5:13.11 mile as she, Nicole Watterud, Jackie Halstead and Jessica Jelfo took the mile relay in 22:44.76. Jessica Wheeler and Justine Seliger team up to win the 55-meter hurdles in 20.30 seconds. Katie Osborne and Maria Allen combined to clear 9 feet in the high jump for second place. Maria Thomson and Janae Price

CNS wrestlers take seventh at Andersen meet By Phil Blackwell pblackwell@cnylink.com At least the CiceroNorth Syracuse wrestling team got its full complement of practices finished before the onset of last week’s snow that dumped as much as four feet in some areas. Just as the snow event was commencing, so was the Northstars’ season as it hosted the annual Andersen Tournament on Dec. 4, drawing 17 teams from across Upstate New York. CNS finished seventh in the team standings, with 103 points. PalmyraMacedon (Section V) took the top spot with 245.5 points, well clear of runner-up Chenango Forks (174 points). South Jefferson, with 128 points, finished fifth, best among Section III sides. Only twice did North-

star wrestlers reach the finals. Ariel Anoceto did so at 189 pounds, earning three straight pins over Will VanScoter (South Jefferson), Nate Farley (Amsterdam) and Chad Voorhess (Elmira Free Academy) before dropping a close 5-4 decision to Palmyra-Macedon’s Cody Jacobs in the finals. Me anw h i l e, at 2 8 5 pounds, Clayton D’Onofrio also made the finals. He pinned Tyler Gleason (Gouverneur) in 26 seconds) and Pat Byrne (Rush-Henrietta) in 1:26 to reach the title match, only to run into another Palmyra wrestler, Brandon Jones, and get pinned in the second period. Matt Mastro earned third place at 215 pounds w hen Jess e Ange vine (Windsor) had to withdraw due to injury default. Drew Dyer (96 pounds) beat Herkimer’s Ryan Zawtocki

12-1 to earn fifth place at 96 pounds, while Dan Ciciarelli, at 112 pounds, also finished fifth by topping Rob DiDomenico (Whitesboro) 7-1. James Segars was sixth at 160 pounds. Amsterdam’s Brandon Lapi, the champion at 112 pounds, and PalmyraMacedon’s Owen Scott, who took the 160-pound title, shared Most Oustanding Wrestler honors. CNS was supposed to open CNY Counties League action last Wednesday against Institute of Technology Central (the combined team of Syracuse city school wrestlers), but it got snowed out. After hosting the JV Blindmen’s Invitational on Saturday, CNS is set to visit West Genesee on Wednesday and compete Friday and Saturday in the Tri-Valley Tournament at Camden.

Liverpool girls bowlers beat West Genny By Phil Blackwell pblackwell@cnylink.com Mary Townley helped lead the Liverpool girls bowling team to a 3-0 shutout of West Genesee as play resumed following the weather-enforced delays from earlier in the week. Townley finished with a three-game total of 685, steadily accumulating strikes as she put up a high game of 233. By contrast, the Wildcats’ top bowler, Beth Piston, had just a 544 series.

Cicero-North Syracuse lost a pair of 2-1 decisions to Fayetteville-Manlius. In the boys match, Joe Cummings led the Northstars with a 599 series, with Zach Szumloz adding a 546 set. F-M’s Rick Meyers had a 279 high game and 723 series. Over in the girls match against the Hornets, Brianna Valentine, with a 459 series, and Jena Tafel, with a 439 series, led the Northstars. F-M had Matika Groesbeck (551) and Tricia Miller (550) out in front.

got third place (56 feet 3 ¼ inches) in the shot put. The Northstars also claimed third place in the 4x400 (4:42.79) and fourth in the 4x200 (2:03.06), plus fourth in the triple jump and fifth in the sprint medley. Moving to the boys edition of the Morse relays, Liverpool held off Baldwinsville, 44 points to 41, for the championship as CNS, with 39 points, grabbed third place. Zavon Watkins returned to the oval and immediately helped the Warriors pick up some victories. Watkins, Anthony Ostuni, Keewan Rondinello and Alex Chris-

tensen combined to win the 4x800 relay in a time of 8:57.79, more than 13 seconds ahead of runnerup Solvay. Justin McGriff ’s top triple jump of 38 feet 8 ¼ inches helped the Warriors prevail as he and Julian Anjorin combined to go 72 feet 11 ¼ inches. McGriff and Anjorin teamed with James Terranova and Kameron Arnold to get second place in the 4x400 relay in 3:57.35, just ahead of CNS (3:58.92) in third place, a two-point diference. In the 4x200, Steve Fiorello, Jordan Stenson, Ryan Ronk and Damien Brown

got second place in 1:42.43. Liverpool added a fourthplace finish in the shot put (69 feet 7 ¼ inches) and mile relay. The Northstars had Anthony Lupia, Ken Ryan, Neill Gill and Anthony Cialfi get second place in the mile relay in 19:53.69. Alex Bottorff, Ryan Connor, Chris Poniros and Jared Walther were third in the 1,600 sprint medley in 4:02.44. CNS also took third place in the high jump (10 feet 8 inches), fourth in the long jump and fifth in the pole vault and triple jump.

Stewart, CNS opens with Proctor tournament title By Phil Blackwell pblackwell@cnylink.com More attention than ever before will descend upon the Cicero-North Syracuse girls basketball team this s eas on, for many different reasons. From a team standpoint, it’s because the Northstars are two-time defending S ection III Class AA champions, returning all but one player (Brittney Fedele) to the fold, so it is heavily favored for a third straight title. Then there’s the spate of individual stories, none bigger than that of 6-3 junior Breanna Stewart. Named a first-team AllAmerican by the Sporting News, Stewart is the subject of an intense recruiting battle as big-name programs like Connecticut and Tennessee vie for her services. But Stewart doesn’t have to go it alone on this team. It already has a Division I signee in senior point guard Kelsey Mattice, who is going to the University of Maine next year. Add the talents of Brittany Paul, Abbey Timpano and Kara Gannett, and head coach Eric Smith has a right to think that his Northstars could make a state title run this

time around. To test itself (and showcase Stewart), CNS opens its s e as on wit h t hree consecutive tournament app e ar anc e s , st ar t i ng with last weekend’s Lady Raider Tip-Off Classic at Utica Proctor. And the Northstars won it, culminating with Sunday’s championship game where, against the hosts from Proctor, CNS fought hard to beat the Raiders 61-45. Much of the game’s attention focused on Stewart and Proctor’s Brianna Kiesel, the latter a senior already signed to the University of Pittsburgh who, in the Raiders’ 64-59 opening-round win over CBA, became the school’s all-time leading scorer. Though the Northstars gained a 28-23 lead by halftime, it could not get away from Proctor as Kiesel worked her way to 25 points, carrying her team along. Only in the four th quarter did CNS draw clear. Part of it was because Kiesel did not get much help from her teammates, none of which scored in double figures. By contrast, Paul, aided by a pair of 3-pointers, put in 17 p oints and Sarah Bowles added eight points, as they prevented

the Raiders from keying too much on Stewart. Still, it was Stewart walking away with tourn am e nt M V P h on or s as she finished with 29 points, nearly half of them at the foul line, where she drained 13 free throws. A day earlier, CNS had breezed through the opening round, beating Greece Athena 68-36. Just like the final, the Northstars found balance between Stewart, who had 25 points, and Paul, who poured in 16 points. Gannett chimed in with seven points. Perhaps the biggest news from that game was an interested spectator at the game – none other t han UC onn women’s coach Geno Auriemma, who was keeping tabs on Stewart. Tennessee coaching legend Pat Summitt had visited CNS early this month to watch Stewart in a scrimmage against Jordan-Elbridge. More of this attention is expected when CNS makes the trip to University High School in Newark, N.J. for another highprofile tournament on Friday and Saturday. The Northstars do not play a home game until Jan. 4, against Henninger.

Sports CNS takes out Liverpool Liverpool, CNS hockey in Dome duel take opening losses By Phil Blackwell pblackwell@cnylink.com

Contributed photo

The Carrier Dome at Syracuse University By Phil Blackwell pblackwell@cnylink.com Months of anticipation finally turned into sweet reality when Cicero North Syracuse and Liverpool’s boys basketball teams renewed their neighborhood rivalry Sunday night on a new and much bigger stage - the Carrier Dome. In the featured game of the inaugural Holiday Tipoff Classic, the Northstars led from start to finish and had every aspect of its game, especially the defense, in sharp form as it beat the Warriors by a score of 6549. CNS began the season in a new role - that of defending Section III Class AA champions. Though many standouts from that title team, like Andy Falvey, John Howell, Eric Munoz and Anthony DelCoro (who hit the banked-in, buzzerbeating 3-pointer to knock off Utica Proctor in the sectional final) departed, head coach John Haas had a solid core, including Zach Coleman, Josh Williams, Elliott Boyce and Riley Moonan, back for more. As for Liverpool and its veteran coach, Jerry Wilcox, the departure of forward

Jesse Gates hurt - but the return of the likes of Connor Rogers and Ian Hamm gave the Warriors an inside presence that, in theory, was supposed to prove potent against the smaller Northstars lineup. Caring little for theories, CNS out-rebounded LIverpool for large portions of the night anyway. It roared ahead 10-2 before the game was four minutes old as Coleman capped it off with a pair of baskets, including a steal and lay-up. Even a time-out by Wilcox did little to wake up the Warrior attack, and it trailed 16-7 after one quarter, dealing with the fact that CNS was using up to 10 players, the kind of depth that few teams at this level possess. Liverpool stayed cold in the second period, allowing the Northstars to work through it own issues without any penalty. Vaughndell Brantley, coming off the bench, got five quick points, and CNS continued to surge until, at halftime, it possessed a 31-16 lead. To pull further away, the Northstars turned to Dave Jackowski, who notched his team’s first seven points of the second half. Then Moonan chimed in with eight points in the period as

the lead grew to 50-29. The combination of Liverpool’s struggles from the floor (especially perimeter shooting) and CNS controlling the boards on both ends all but assured that the Warriors could not make the run it needed - even though its offense did improve in the fourth quarter with the game essentially out of reach. CNS proved quite balanced on the offensive side. Moonan had 13 points, while Coleman and Jackowski each got 11 points. Brantley picked up nine points as Boyce earned eight points and Williams added six points. Hamm led Liverpool with 14 points, while Rogers got most of his 11 points in the late stages. At least, from the Warriors’ perspective, this was a non-league game, as the league contest is not until Feb. 18, the last Friday night of the regular season. Another high-profile test awaits CNS at Friday’s Peppino’s Classic at Henninger - namely, a rematch of that memorable sectional final against revenge-minded Utica Proctor, which tips off at 6 p.m. This comes two nights after the Warriors, in its home opener, get its own shot at the Raiders.

Liverpool wrestlers rise to fourth at Herkimer meet By Phil Blackwell pblackwell@cnylink.com Liverpool’s wrestling team has started quite well in the 2010-11 season, even as it saw practices and a meet against FayettevilleManlius get postponed by the winter snows. First, the Warriors swept past three different opponents on Dec. 4 at the APW/Pulaski Dual Meet. Liverpool beat the host team 65-9, while also taking out Mohawk 48-32 and defeating Jordan-Elbridge by a 54-27 margin. A week later, following the F-M postponement, the Warriors were making an impressive showing at the Herkimer Invitational. Overall, the Warriors tied Sherburne-

Earlville for fourth place in a 21-team field, earning 103 points. In fact, Liverpool was quiet close to the runner-up spot (Chittenango, 116.5 points) as Spencerport dominated the meet, winning with 276 points. The Warriors pulled this off without a single wrestler reaching the final round. Pat Carroll-Marsh did take third place at 285 pounds, pinning Erik Eichler (SherburneEarlville) in just 43 seconds for that mark, while Nate Hathaway (119 pounds) and Brendan Capria (171 pounds) each had fourth-place showings. This sets up a big week for Liverpool as, on Tuesday, it would host rival Baldwinsville before a Thursday trip to Auburn and a Saturday appearance in the high-profile North Country Invitational at Indian River.

Perhaps off its rhythm due to a lack of practice time during the week (the snow had a lot to do with that), the Liverpool and Cicero-North Syracuse ice hockey teams both absorbed weekend defeats. The Warriors are coming off a 4-14-1 season where it missed the Division I playoffs. Trying to turn things around, Liverpool turned to a new head coach, Mark Benedetto, who has said his players’ approach to the game, and relationship with each other, has changed. Now the Warriors had to see if that could translate into on-ice success in a revamped Division I. State-mandated changes to the enrollment structure meant an expansion of the ranks and a split into two divisions. Liverpool and CNS are in Division I-A with defending state Division I champion West Genesee, plus Ithaca, Corcoran, Central Square, Ontario Bay and Hamilton.

Div ision I-B fe atures Baldwinsville, CortlandHomer, Fayetteville-Manlius, Rome Free Academy, Solvay, Utica Proctor and Watertown IHC. The biggest offshoot of this change is that the Division I teams will only play each other once in the regular season, ending the old system of home-and-home league games. Also, eight of the 14 teams will qualify for the playoffs. With this as backdrop, Liverpool played Corcoran in Friday’s snow-delayed opener at State Fair Coliseum and saw its defense get picked apart in a 6-3 loss to the Cougars. Trailing 2-0, the Warriors got back in the game in the second period as Jeff Conese scored twice and Jordan Iannolo also converted. Zach Vivenzo and Ryan Gallardo earned assists. Still, the Cougars stayed in front, 4-3, and pulled away late with a barrage of shots. Joe Ciciarelli made 50 saves, but could not keep everything out as Corcoran’s Derek Eccles used a three-goal hat trick to lead his side.

A day later, it was CNS’s turn to hit the ice as it looked to improve on last year’s 6-13-1 mark. And though its offense clicked at Ithaca, it still lost 6-4 to the Little Red. The Northstars, snowed out of last Tuesday’s opener against Solvay at the Twin Rinks, kept up with Ithaca through the first two periods, matching goals and forging a 3-3 tie. However, the CNS defense struggled in the third period, giving up three goals as the Little Red went in front, overcoming Zach Hall’s 26 saves. Brian Hamilton finished with two goals, while Eric Hamilton managed one goal and one assist. Joe Gracz also found the net. Anthony Massicci led Ithaca with two goals and one assist. C N S w ou l d re tu r n home Tuesday to face Central Square before a Friday trip to Hamilton. L iver p o ol go es nor t h to play Ontario Bay on Tuesday and is back at the Coliseum Friday for a date with Utica Proctor.

Crunch struggling Hometown hockey hopefuls endure tough two losses here last weekend By Russ Tarby As the team staggers toward mid-season, the Syracuse Crunch sustained two tough losses last weekend at the War Memorial. On Friday, Dec. 10, the Crunch allowed the cellar-dwelling Adirondack Phantoms to skate circles around them for three long periods. The Phantoms – a team that had won but three of the 26 American Hockey League games it had played this season – tallied three power-play goals along the way to a 5-2 victory. Along the way, the Crunch mishandled pucks, passed carelessly and allowed a goal after being called for sending too many players onto the ice. Instead of standing strong in its own barn, the Crunch wavered and wobbled through

the game like amateurs. They were buoyed briefly by Nicholas Deschamps’ eighth goal of the season and Josh Green’s fifth. After Friday’s slipshod effort was over, first-year Coach Mark Holick conducted a closed-door team meeting. Whatever was said in the locker room was enough to fire up the players to fight to within one goal against the Bridgeport Sound on Saturday, Dec. 11. But after countless second-period lapses in its defensive zone, the Crunch had dug itself into too deep a hole. Syracuse goals netted by Matt Beleskey, Mat Clark and John Mitchell went to waste in the 4-3 decision. The Crunch outshot their opponents Saturday for just the fifth time this season. Crunch goaltenders J.P. Levasseur on Friday and Timo Pielmeier on Saturday each turned in admirable outings, stopping 30

of 34 and 27 of 31 shots, respectively. But the two games weren’t lost in the crease. They were lost by sloppy position play and pointless penalties. Syracuse – with a record of 9-14-1-3 – has now dropped 11 of its past 14 games and stands in seventh place just above lastplace Adirondack in the AHL East Division. Of the Crunch’s first 27 games this season, 19 have been decided by a difference of only one goal, and of those 19 close calls, just seven were won by the Crunch. After a game in Binghamton on Friday, Dec. 17, Holick’s skaters return home to the War Memorial at 7:30 Saturday, Dec. 18, to face off against WilkesBarre/Scranton Penguins, and will host the Hartford Wolfpack at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 19. Ticket prices range between $13 and $22; 473-4444; syracusecrunch. com.

SU silences critics, conquers Michigan State By Kareem Obeid Contributing writer Though unblemished, the Syracuse men’s basketball team still had plenty of critics ( Jim Boeheim among them) entering its toughest test of the young season. But the Orange silenced those critics and earned a signature victory, defeating no. 8 Michigan State Spartans in a convincing 72-58 decision last Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden in the Jimmy V Classic. Michigan State carries with it an impressive NCAA Tournament resume, achieving six Final Four appearances in the last 12 years under coach Tom Izzo. But it didn’t matter on this night. En-route to victory, SU forced 17 Spartan turnovers and out-rebounded them 3830. Michigan State, which had been making 43 percent of its 3-pointers for the season, made just seven of their 24 attempts

against the Orange. Even as its perimeter struggles continued (two for 11 from 3-point land), SU was still ef f icient shooting at 44.4 percent overall, and it also proved unselfish, getting 20 assists. R ick Jacks on and Scoop Jardine led the way. Jackson delivered his seventh double-double in an eight-game span, matching his career high with 17 points and 16 rebounds on eight-for-15 shooting. Jackson, combined with Bye Moussa Keita, was outstanding on defense, too. Jardine adde d 19 points, six assists and four steals on a more pleasant seven-for-9 shooting. On defense, he cut off Spartan interior passes and created steals in the crucial stages. K r i s Jo s e p h f ou n d other ways to score, as he gave the Orange 14 points, mostly by hitting eight of nine free throws. Brandon Triche delivered eight points, five assists and four steals while

playing a significant role assisting the defense. In the first half, the Spartans’ offense rolled early, with a Corey Luscious 3-pointer and Draymond Green also converting. From there though, the Orange took over, relentlessly driving to the basket and getting easy inside looks that led to fouls. Of the first nine points, seven came from the free-throw line. SU’s defense only got stronger as the night went on. The Spartans’ offense was discombobulated missing six straight field goals thanks to the Orange’s extremely active 2/3 zone. Meanwhile, the offense started to click, as C.J. Fair and Jackson hit on back-to-back dunks, to the delight of the 19,124 in MSG, most of them pulling for SU. Hitting both inside and outside, SU’s lead grew to 25-16, and there it stayed the rest of the half as, at the break, the Orange nursed a 38-29 lead.

In the second half, the Spartans made one big r un, c utt ing SU’s advantage to 53-50. But the Orange reasserted its dominance, manhandling Michigan State with excellent passing, and a defense that kept forcing turnovers. SU put the game out reach with a 7-0 run, as Jardine converted back to back lay-ups to help key this most important win. Following t his, t he Orange deserved a respite – and certainly got one Saturday night as it maintained its perfect mark by blasting winless Colgate 100-43 in front 21,427 in the Carrier Dome. T he 5 7 - p oi nt f i na l equaled the largest margin of victory in Boeheim’s 35-year tenure at SU. The Orange have also won 45 straight meetings over the Raiders, dating back to the 1961-62 season. This time around, the 2-3 zone demolished Colgate, only allowing three field goals in the entire first half. And the offense spread around, with

nine players on the board and four reaching double digits. Dion Waiters led all participants with a season-high 17 points. Jackson delivered yet another double-double with 18 points, 12 rebounds and four assists, while Jardine contributed 13 points and six assists without a turnover. Tr iche, mire d in a shooting slump, finally had a breakout game. He registered 14 points and five rebounds, hitting a 3-pointer for the first time since the game against Detroit back in November. “it felt great to make a 3 pointer,” said Triche. “Just to knock down my first one gave me a lot of confidence to shoot more.” The streaky Mookie Jones logged in productive minutes delivering two early 3-pointers off passes from Joseph and Jardine. Waiters had eight first-half points that helped create a 27-4 margin with five minutes left in the half.

SU nearly had a shutout and went to the break with a stunning 46-8 lead. The Raiders, in that half, attempted 28 shots while making just three. The Raiders;’ futility created at Carrier Dome record for fewest points in half, sur passing Pr inceton, who had 12 in a 1999 game. And the Orange did not let up, outscoring Colgate 54-38 in the second half. The Raiders’ Joe Hoban finished with 14 points, while center (and Jamesville-DeWitt graduate) Nick Pascale added 6 points Brandon James had six points, too. Boeheim took out the starters with 10 minutes left. Joseph scored 7 points and James Sutherland gave SU a stellar performance with six points in those waning minutes. SU finally overcame their struggles to make shots beyond the 3-point line, and contributed a season-high total of 11 treys. Then it was off until facing Iona at the Dome this Saturday.
