Police arrest 3 after drug search By Neal Simon The Evening Tribune

HORNELL — City Police said three local residents were arrested early last Sunday morning, the culmination of an investigation into the “street sale” of heroin in the Maple City.

Officers executed a search warrant at 2 a.m. The target was a residence at 325 Grand St. The warrant was signed by City Judge David Coddington. Authorities said the search yielded “a quantity of heroin prepackaged for street sale.” Arrested were: Jason H. Reis-

inger, 31, of 325 Grand St., Hornell, for third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, endangering the welfare of a child and unlawful possession of marijuana. Joshua T. Owens, 32, of 9672

state Route 36, Dansville for third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child. Brittany R. Hunt, 26, of 23 Locust Drive, Hornell for

PAINTED POST — The vacant property that once housed the Corning Harley-Davidson store on Town Center Road in Painted Post has been purchased by Family Life Network, a Christian radio network and advocacy group based out of Kanona. Family Life purchased the property for $1.42 million. The group plans to use the building as its new headquarters, relocating from its current Kanona headquarters. “We’ve been looking for probably the last halfdozen years for a site that would allow us to expand our current facility,” Family Life President and CEO Rick Snavely said. The group looked at the property prior to Harley-Davidson buying it in 2008, he said, but “the timing wasn’t right.” Family Life has been based out of its Kanona location for approximately the last 50 years. However, the group’s expansion has outpaced the space and options

Invasive forest pests workshop slated

Invasive forest pests impact the ecosystems, economies, and aesthetics of our region. Pests such as emerald ash borer (EAB) and hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) have been spreading throughout the Finger Lakes region and are known to be present in Steuben and surrounding counties. The Bath area in particular has been hard hit by emerald ash borer and it continues to spread. Both pests attack and kill their respective host trees (ash and hemlock). This is of great concern because economically valuable ash trees make up 10-20% of the trees in our region, and hemlocks are a keystone species in our forests and gullies as they hold together soil on steep slopes and provide a cool, moist climate for plants, birds and many aquatic species such as trout. Options for controlling these pests are available but infestations must be identified before they can be managed. Other issues such as oak wilt and Asian longhorned beetle are not known to be present in Steuben County but early detection of these problems will be critical if they do arrive. Prepare yourself with the information needed to identify and manage these forest invasive species. Join us for a free workshop open to the public to learn about detection and management of forest invasive pests. The workshop is free but advanced registration by Monday, Jan. 23 is requested; please contact Emily Staychock at or 315-536-5123 x4127. Please provide your contact information in the event that the workshop is canceled due to bad weather. • Submitted

Politics | Tom O’Mara

Snapshots of public opinion The Southern Tier and the Finger Lakes regions may not be direct stops on Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2017 State of the State road tour this week, but those of us living, working and raising families here don’t need a speech to know where things stand. We know taxes are still too high and that there are still too many state mandates and regulations. We know job creation continues to lag and that private-sector economic growth isn’t up to speed. We know heroin, meth and other deadly drugs are ravaging too many communities and taking too many young lives. We also know that there are solid teams in place – at every level of government, through our Regional Economic Development Councils, within a number of vital public-private partnerships, at our not-forprofit organizations, and in many other places – committed to building the blueprints and foundations needed to address the challenges and crises facing us. The 2017 session of the State Legislature kicked off last week and the Senate quickly started setting the stage by releasing a new report and issuing recommendations based upon legislative hearings I co-sponsored late last year as chair of the Senate Environmental Conservation Committee. The executive summary of our new report, “Water Quality and Contamination,” states the overriding purpose this way, “In response to a burgeoning water quality crisis across New York State, the Senate and Assembly Health and Environmental Conservation Committees convened public hearings during the fall of 2016. The goal of these hearings was to provide an opportunity for legislators and the public to hear from state officials, experts, residents and others to gain an understanding of the problems as well as oversight responsibilities at the local, state and federal level with respect to water quality and contamination. These hearings provided a foundation upon which to begin building a framework for legislation and policies to ensure more appropriate responses to current and future water contamination occurrences.” We know that the many challenges surrounding water quality are here to stay. Consequently, our legislative recommendations call for the establishment of a Drinking Water Quality Institute to maintain an independent focus on this issue. A new law I cosponsored in 2016 to en-

act the first-in-the-nation requirement for public schools to test drinking water systems for lead contamination is already having a positive impact. So is the “Water Quality Infrastructure Improvement Act” the Senate spearheaded in 2015 to provide state grants to help local governments undertake long-overdue infrastructure upgrades. Water quality highlights just one priority in 2017 and you can read our full report on my Senate website, http://www.omara.ny A common question at the outset of every legislative session is this one: What’s your opinion? With that in mind, as I have annually since 2011, I’ve posted a “Community and Legislative Survey” on my website. The goal of this annual online questionnaire is to encourage input on a range of specific challenges facing the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes regions (as well as the state as a whole). This year’s survey will cover a range of specific topics – some that are hot button issues, and some that fly under the radar but are no less important – including unfunded state mandates, Medicaid reform, the heroin and opioid crisis, public corruption, local roads and bridges, and, of course, the economy and job creation. The survey cannot cover every single issue on everyone’s agenda, which is why it includes a section for anyone interested to provide additional comments and highlight their particular area of concern. It’s not an end-all be-all poll in any way, but it does help provide meaningful and useful snapshots of what’s on the minds of area residents paying attention to state government and willing to give some thought to the choices being debated at the Capitol. Every year I hear from thousands of area residents who take the time through an e-mail, a letter, a phone call, a community meeting or in some other way to share their ideas and, especially, their views on the issues of the day. The input – negative or positive, constructive or not – helps provide the insight and understanding that matters.

I heard it through the grapevine By Mark L. Hopkins More Content Now

“It may sound preposterous but it’s true/ cause I heard it through the grapevine./ And Friend, I’m about to lose my mind/cause I heard it through the grapevine.” That song was written in 1966 by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong for Motown Records. The message was about hearsay. The 2017 version of the grapevine is the internet. According to the FBI and the CIA, fake news items that have appeared on the Internet in recent months seem to have been given credence by a significant portion of the population. “Oh, no one believes that stuff.” No? Well try the following. “Hillary and Bill Clinton are running a child sex slave ring from Comet Ping Pong, a pizza parlor in Washington, D.C.” — Does that sound ridiculous? Well, a man from North Carolina showed up there and fired off his gun inside the popular family-friendly restaurant because he believed it. Earlier, two women came to investigate the tunnel under the restau-

rant reportedly used to hide the children. The restaurant has received numerous threats both by phone and by email. “It may sound preposterous but it’s true/ cause I read it on the … internet.” “President Obama was born in Kenya so he couldn’t be a legitimate president.” — That one has been repeated so often that it is now being used by the news media as an example of an untruth said often enough that it became believable. Is it true? No. It has been debunked over and over. Even Donald Trump said that it wasn’t true in a speech back in November. Still, polls show that more than 30 percent of our population seems convinced. Folks, his mother was from Kansas. “And friend, I’m about to lose my mind/cause I read it on the ...internet.” “The murder rate in the U.S. is the highest it has been in 45 years.” — In fact, it is near a 50year low. This, despite the problems in Chicago. “Britney Spears died.” — No, Britney is alive and well and planning her next concert. “But the rumor must

be true/cause I read it on the … internet.” The fake news items generally appear through Facebook or some other social media unit and go viral. One poll showed that more people believe the fake news posts than believe the newspapers. Let’s examine that last statement. Virtually anyone with a computer can put something on Facebook. There is no fact checking, no way to verify the relative truth of the statement, no consequences if the presentation is found to be libelous, self-serving or damaging to someone else. Newspapers, on the other hand, have both ethics and standards for their articles. Virtually every news article is required to have two sources in order to be presented as factual. The year 2016 was a difficult year for fake news. Candidates from both sides of the aisle were attacked with items that had no foundation in fact. Over and over statements were debunked. Awards were given for “One, two or three Pinocchios.” And, if it was really bad they called it “Pants on fire.” Still, if

a portion of the voting public believed it, the fake news worked. And because it did, we can expect more of the same in future elections. What do we do about such? We are long overdue for a governor on Facebook and other social media. Just as political candidates must take credit/blame for advertisements on radio and TV, (My name is ___________ and I approved this message) the same should apply to social media. No one should be able to get away with attacking a person’s good name, causing a business to fail, or attempting to steal an election without paying a cost for the violation.

Stomp to the beat for this move By Marlo Alleva More Content Now

Here we are, a few weeks into a new year. Some are still strategizing their fitness goals and others have a few sore muscles at this point. No matter where you are in your resolution plans at least you have fitness on the mind. I have mentioned many times that simplicity at the start keeps things attainable on your fitness journey, big or small. There are so many moves and activities to keep you moving, seeing results that will help you build your strength and endurance and pushing you to do bigger and more complex exercises. And that is exactly what our move today will do. It is simple in movement, but done for any length of time, packs a big punch. Our move today is an elevated stomp squat and all you need is a step or elevated surface. This stomping squat will elevate your heart rate, and target your glutes, your quads, and your hamstrings. And the best part, all fitness levels can do it. Begin this stomping

squat by placing one foot on top of your elevated surface and the other at ground level. The distance between your feet should be similar to doing a regular squat (slightly outside your hip-width). Hold your chest tall, engage your core and bend in both knees (just like in a regular squat). Using your elevated foot, proceed to lift it up and stomp it back down onto the step. Once you stomp down, your stabilizing foot will lift up off the ground, causing you to shift your weight slightly onto your elevated side. The idea is to stomp quickly and somewhat exaggerated, keeping your body in a slightly seated squatting position, causing your weight to shift from side to side. This quick movement will create quick bursts of tension in your leg muscles and build your cardiovascular strength at the same time. You can shoot for a determined stomp count or set an amount of time on one leg. If you count stomps, shoot for about 50, if you are timing, shoot for 30 to 45 seconds. Once you reach the desired amount on your


first leg, switch sides and continue the stomping motion on your other leg. Keep your timing the same from side to side giving yourself at least three sets on both legs. If you choose to keep this exercise in your weekly routine, and as your endurance grows,

you can add hand weights to intensify this move. This move can be a lot of fun if you add music, especially a faster pace beat, and try to keep your stomping motion on beat. Happy stomping, and good luck on your 2017 fitness journey!

GRANT Continued from 1A awarded  a Conservancy Grant of $10,000 to help fund construction documents for new slate roof and bluestone masonry restoration. With its picturesque, random coursed, rough-faced bluestone facades, steeply pitched gable roof, butressed bell tower with steep masonry spire, trefoil clerestory windows, and pointedarched stained glass windows, St. Thomas Church embodies the characteristics of the Gothic Revival style.  The church was designed by Henry C. Dudley, a prominent New York City architect renowned for his church designs.  Among the building’s more prominent features is its bell

AWARD tower with steeple engaged in the northwest corner of the building.  A matching parish hall was constructed in 1904.  The Conservancy grant will help fund the services of the experienced preservation firm Johnson-Schmidt & Associates, Architects, to generate detailed plans and specifications for roof replacement and repair of deteriorated bluestone copings. The church operates a food pantry and soup kitchen, the Red Door Community Kitchen, serving weekly community meals. The church has a community garden, with produce supporting the feeding and pantry program, and crafting and fiber ministries.  The facility is used for many commu-

nity programs, and hosts concerts by its choir and bellringers group, as well as regional music groups.  There are large events sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, Alcoholics Anonymous, training sessions of Guide Dogs for the Blind, and retreats of Rochester Rhapsody, a women’s chorus.  Altogether, community programs serve 6,000 community residents annually. The New York Landmarks Conservancy The New York Landmarks Conservancy has led the effort to preserve and protect New York City’s architectural legacy for over 40 years.  Since its founding, the Conservancy has loaned and granted more

than $40 million, which has leveraged more than $1 billion in 1,550 restoration projects throughout New York, revitalizing communities, providing economic stimulus and supporting local jobs.  The Conservancy has also offered countless hours of pro bono technical advice to building owners, both nonprofit organizations and individuals.  The Conservancy’s work has saved more than a thousand buildings across the City and State, protecting New York’s distinctive architectural heritage for residents and visitors alike today, and for future generations.  For more information, please visit www.nyland

treats and conferences. “We’ve got a Hampton Inn brand new right next door,” he added. “We’ve got an Econo Lodge in walking distance. You’ve got all of those things right there… it’s an ideal sight.” The move is pending right now, as the group needs to raise additional funds to retrofit the building. Snavely said it intends to renovate the exterior appearance and construct a second story for Family Life’s corporate offices, radio studios, biblical counseling department and arts center to teach drama, music and dance. He said the group is also interested in purchasing the adjoining property to build a new theater/ auditorium. Family Life received some help and good fortune leading up to the deal.

After Harley-Davidson closed in early 2016, the organization learned that one of the property’s principal owners is a good friend of the ministry and a regular contributor. Snavely said Family Life met with him, and he lowered the asking price significantly to sell to the group. “But he told me, ‘every time I write a check to pay it off, I’ll smile because I know I’m contributing to Family Life,’” Snavely said. Eventually, a couple who are longtime ministry supporters heard about the negotiations. They said they would put up a matching $500,000 gift if the group were to buy the property. “It blew us away, we’ve never had anything like that before,” Snavely said. “In 60 years of ministry, never.”

With that, the group sent out a fundraising letter to help cover some of the remaining cost. It needed to finalize the deal before the end of 2016, otherwise the asking price would rise significantly. Family Life covered the balance with just enough time to spare. “About two minutes before midnight, on Dec. 31, the final gift of the year came in and it put us over the mark,” Snavely said. “It was absolutely incredible. The Lord truly blessed us.” The Corning HarleyDavidson store last occupied the space before it went out of business and closed on Jan. 16, 2016, affecting about a dozen workers. The property has remained vacant while owners searched for a buyer.

third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child. North Hornell-based State Police assisted Hornell authorities with the investigation. Third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance is a class B felony, while seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance is a class A misdemeanor. Endangering the welfare is a class A misdemeanor. All three suspects were arraigned in Hornell City Court before Coddington and sent to the Steuben County Jail without bail. Meanwhile, in an unrelated drug case, police Sunday afternoon arrested Dana A. Masterson, 21, of Pearl Street, Hornell, charging him with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and violation of parole. After stopping Masterson’s vehicle on Hornell Street, police say they turned up 40 prepackaged glassine envelopes containing heroin. Sgt. Ryan Harrison and officer Michael Hoyt made the traffic stop.

Bath Historic Preservation By Becky Stranges Chairperson for the Bath Historic Preservation Commission

I have just returned from a trip with a friend to Portugal. In the past she and I have traveled to Poland, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Germany, and Finland. I also travelled as a high school musician to Greece, Italy, Russia, Turkey and Holland and John and I have traveled to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. I have been truly blessed to see all of these wonderful places, especially as an impressionable adolescent! I can honestly say that these experiences have changed my life. I think the biggest impact has been on my deep appreciation for the preservation of culture through the preservation of old buildings. In America, old means the 1700’s. In other countries that is still infancy! I have visited sites in Poland that go back to the 600’s and believe me when you walk into a Jewish synagogue which is that old, you can tangibly feel the history. When I travel to these places it always amazes me how each culture has maintained its old buildings’ facades and yet they have survived centuries of changes, even in places where fire, natural disaster or war have made their mark! Why do these cultures continue to honor and preserve these old buildings while in America we demolish historic buildings to build parking lots and highways? I think that there are many answers to this question but I believe that pride and respect are the main reasons.

Pride. When my friend and I checked into our hotel, the young man proudly exclaimed that the building was built in the 1500’s! This young man was 20 years old at best and was studying to become a tourism manager. Yet he was proud of the building that he was working in. This kind of pride is developed as a child growing up, not learned! Hmm! Are we teaching our children to take care of things or are we teaching them that everything can just be replaced? Respect! Though we all may equate this with minding adults as a child, it really means treating each other and everything we have, including the environment, with the greatest care to preserve it for the future. In other words we protect each other, our environment and things that have been created by our predecessors, like historic buildings! Even if we are not talking about Historic Preservation, having pride and respect for the things around us will make the Village of Bath a better place to be. How do you measure up?

Racial equality gets a boost in the 1960s space race film ‘Hidden Figures’ By Ed Symkus More Content Now

The naysaying about “Hidden Figures” had already begun on social media before anyone had even seen the film. “That story never happened,” said someone after watching the trailer. “Three black women were responsible for the success of NASA? Give me a break,” said another, who either had no idea what the movie was about, or was just your run-of-the-mill racist. OK, no, three black women were not “responsible” for the success of NASA’s Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs. But the story in “Hidden Figures,” filled out by a bit of dramatic fictionalization, did happen. The trio at the film’s core are Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae). Real people. Engineers, mathematicians, computer whizzes. One happened to have expertise in analytic geometry, just what was needed at NASA at the time, right in the midst of its spacerace heyday. Go ahead, Google them. This is their story, and it concentrates on the contributions they made to NASA in the early 1960s. But it’s also the story of the overwhelmingly white male workers around them, all incredibly bright, some racist, some threatened by the fact that women were


becoming part of their workforce. Chief among them, in two strong performances, are the demanding NASA director (a composite character based on other directors) Al Harrison (Kevin Costner) and the fictional NASA engineer Paul Stafford (Jim Parsons). After a brief 1920s prologue, in which elementary school-age Katherine Johnson is humorously shown to be the smartest kid in the room, the film jumps to 1961, when the U.S. government and its space agency are concerned that the Russians are getting ahead of them and are likely putting spy satellites in orbit. This isn’t one of those tales where someone is plucked from obscurity, then goes on to save the world or, in this case, win the race. These women were already at NASA. In fact, a lot of brainy black women were at the Langley Research Center

in Virginia, working in the Colored Computers Room. (Note: I learned from the film that the people crunching information on those newfangled IBM machines were actually called computers; they computed.) Segregation was still a way of life back then, so along with that computer room, there were, for instance, also whiteonly and black-only bathrooms, and everyone just kind of dealt with it. But NASA, at least, also noticed and acted on people’s talents and good ideas. Dorothy Vaughan was free to run that computer room, and did so (albeit at pay below that of a supervisor), with complete confidence. Katherine Johnson, known for her skills with numbers and ease with complicated equations, was accepted by Al Harrison as someone whose ideas might just allow them to catch up with and bypass those

pesky Russkies. She was the smartest person in that room, too. There are peeks into the private lives of the three women, some time spent with their families on those rare moments when they weren’t coworkers toiling late into the night at Langley. Director Theodore Melfi (“St. Vincent”) also packs the film with actors playing soon-to-be astronauts Alan Shepard and John Glenn, as well as archival footage of John Kennedy praising the early work of NASA and hinting at a moonshot down the road. The film’s tension starts to build when a radio announces the news of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin becoming the first man in space; it threatens to boil over when deadlines for the first American launch get nearer; and it goes full throttle when, late in the film, after all of that hard work results in American lift-offs, there’s lifethreatening trouble with a capsule’s heat shield way up in the sky. This is an exciting, fast-paced movie (even when we’re seeing people writing on chalkboards) that tells of a fascinating time in our country’s history, when space exploration was just getting going. That it also happens to be about a racial divide that turned into racial equality is an unexpected and welcome bonus.

OUTDOORS WHAT’S UP at MOSSY BANK PARK January 15, 2017 – Who has ever experienced a snowfall, and at some time, probably as a child, did not stop to catch individual snowflakes? The typical technique, after being out in the cold for a while as snow was lightly falling, was to hold out a darkcolored glove or mitten and let a flake fall right there in your gloved hand. Because the glove was cold, the snowflake lasted a while. You could hold your hand right in front of your eyes and carefully study the frozen delight. As everyone has been told, no two snowflakes are alike. This fact was expounded in 1898 by Wilson Bentley, the first snowflake photographer, after examination of over 5000 snowflake photographs. As we shall see, this is an interesting observation; and one that would not have been predicted by the physics of freezing water. This winter has been a good one for snowflake study at Mossy Bank Park because the daily temperatures have ranged from very cold to rather mild, and during all of these temperatures, snow has fallen. Snowflakes, after all, are ice crystals, the solid phase of water. Water vapor in the atmosphere condenses around a speck of dust, a grain of pollen, or a plant or fungal spore. In subfreezing temperatures, this condensed water freezes into an ice crystal. Water, like any compound in its solid phase, has a characteristic crystallographic structure, determined by the atomic forces on the atoms comprising that compound. Ice always forms sixsided crystals. So why I said earlier it is surprising that snowflakes have so many different forms is: if such fundamental physical laws are operating in the process, why is there such variation? This question has been extensively explored by physical chemists who admit they still do not have a complete understanding. They have identified several factors at play during snowflake formation including: temperature, relative humidity, air currents, and the type of particle around which the water vapor condensed and froze. The first two of those factors are probably most important. The effect of the condensing particle seems to mainly involve how rapidly the crystal melts. Meteorologists describing snowflakes refer to them with specific terminology. A snowflake

D. Randy Weidner might appear as a plate: flat and broad. Alternatively, snowflakes may be more of a column: tall and narrow. Both plates and columns display the required sixsided form. Some plates are expanded to include sectors or dendrites, the multiple branches of a ‘typical’ snowflake. Some columns may become hollowed on the ends or grow very long and narrow, like needles. No matter what the alteration, on close examination, all the structures are six-sided. What makes the difference is the temperature and the relative humidity when the snowflake forms. Snowflakes formed in low humidity are generally simple plates, except between 15 and 29 degrees Fahrenheit, when they become columns. These columns may become hollowed or form needles in this same temperature range if the humidity increases. They also tend to be hollow columns in high humidity and temperatures below -8 degrees F. In higher humidity, simple plates become sectored and dendritic (like the classic snowflake) in temperatures between 29 and 32 degrees F, but also in temperatures between -8 and + 15 degrees F. So it is apparent that in fluctuating temperature and humidity, a wide variety of forms may be generated. These fluctuations of temperature and humidity occur with almost every individual snowflake before it ultimately falls to the ground, as air currents carry developing flakes up and down through various layers of air, each layer with its own temperature and humidity. Prove this to yourself by going out under varied conditions of temperature and humidity this winter while it is snowing. Carry a dark fabric that has acquired the surrounding outside temperature, and catch snowflakes. Look at them closely and see the endless variation of sixsided crystals, indicative of that vital compound for all life, water.

Whitetail and human feeding patterns By Oak Duke Humans and whitetails have uniquely different feeding strategies when winter comes around once again. Whitetails actually radically alter their diets when winter sets in and are equipped with a unique stomach system to do it. On the other hand, we humans feed pretty much the same whether it is winter or summer. Since deer no longer have readily available forage from green herbaceous plants, their stomach’s chemistry shifts to being able to assimilate woody browse almost exclusively. That is, they feed on living twigs and buds. Their digestive process in a way, shifts gears with each change of season. Their four-chambered alimentary system is very adaptable. In the summer the whitetail’s diet is mainly herbaceous plants and mast, in the fall along with agricultural crops if any are nearby. A deer’s available menu shifts to more mast consumption and grazing, but in the winter, it is mostly browse, augmented with fortuitous encounters with other sources, such as grasses at a spring seep, a little grain at a bird feeder, an old, overlooked wrinkled apple, still clinging to its bare tree within reach. Inside each living twig’s tip is an embryonic leaf getting ready to unfold in springtime. Nutrients from each stem concentrate there. And that’s where the whitetail finds the bulk of its wintertime sustenance. The twig tip browse is a lifesaver to northern whitetails in winter. Deer prefer some varieties of trees and shrubs, a lot more than others, and sometimes its even the fancy, expensive imported ornamental shrubbery right next to the houses. Humans in the northeastern United States on the other hand, eat pretty much the same things as we do all year long. But by being inside more, almost within


Two 8 point bucks sparring in early January. Bucks fight continually, reinforcing their dominance hierarchy in the bachelor group. arm’s reach of the refrigerator, and a supply of food, we tend to consume quantitatively more than usual, especially during the holiday season. In other words, many people who live in areas with real winters, in contrast to deer, gain weight through the winter. To make it through a long winter, it is important for whitetails to have built up their fat reserves during summer and autumn to sustain them through the lean winter months. Of course humans are usually the opposite, and are generally lighter in weight in the active times of the year. Tragically, deer fed dried herbaceous plants and grasses, like hay during the winter by well-meaning people, have been known to, in a way “starve” because their stomach’s chemistry is not able to quickly change from browse back to a herbaceous fare. It takes a while for the whitetail’s rumen or stomach chemistry to shift into the new cuisine. People and whitetail deer are alike in that they both “down shift” in winter, and most become less active. Many humans say, and follow through with the notion, “It’s too cold to go outside.” One would think at first glance that deer don’t have an “inside” or an “outside” always being in the woods, in the outdoors. But in fact they do, and are not too different from humans in this aspect. Whitetails in northern areas of the Adirondacks and the Upper

part of Michigan head for preferred wintering areas or “yards” as the snows build up. Often it is adjacent to or in a coniferous stand, whether pine, cedar, or hemlock. Incidentally, whitetails seem to especially enjoy eating hemlock (Tsuga canadensis.) (And our hemlock is no relation and not the same thing at all as the poison hemlock of Socrates.) In more southern areas, such as Western NY and Central Pennsylvania, whitetails do not technically “yard.” However, they often head for the thick conifers for bedding and browsing areas. Our Eastern hemlock and the Greek hemlock have nothing in common, except that they are both plants and unfortunately and confusingly have the same name. The temperature, not to mention the wind chill, in a thick stand of pine or hemlock trees may be as much as 10 to 15 degrees warmer on a cold, sunny day than temperature “outside” in a nearby windswept field. So, deer do head “inside” in the winter, just like we do. And by becoming less active, less food is burnt in the internal metabolic kiln, be it whitetail or human. But

no whitetail deer gains weight in the northeastern winter. In contrast, most humans do. Some deer researchers have postulated that whitetails cut their metabolic rate almost in half during the winter! It’s a good thing that human beings don’t or we’d really be in bad shape when Spring rolls around! We’d weigh twice as much if we continued eating as we do! If whitetails find a concentrated food source, such as an overlooked apple tree or acorns under an oak, the older and larger deer eat first and keep the young, less dominant animals away. Does will even kick and drive less dominant does, bucks, and even their own fawns away from a concentrated food source. These older females will strike out with a front hoof and sometimes stand on their hind legs and “box” with their front hoofs. The unfortunate fawns hang around on the periphery, the outside border of the feeding area, browsing the nearby brush and saplings until there is virtually nothing left, no living twig with a diameter smaller than half an inch. The smallest and youngest deer, on the lowest rungs of the pecking order of the herd, stand around and can slowly starve, they can only watch the larger and more dominate deer eat, and hope for the eventual thaw. Sadly, fawns will not leave their family unit and strike out on their own. The herding instinct and family bonds seems to be stronger than even the survival mandate to eat. Old does will lower their ears when a fawn or less dominate deer comes near the food source, glare, and then strike out with their fore feet. Whitetails unlike humans, do not share no matter what time of year it is.

Wellsville 45, Bath 18 BATH — Wellsville recorded a 45-18 win over Bath on Wednesday. The Lions posted the first five wins of the meet.

Dalton Elliot (152), Dakota Thomas (160) and Cyrano Buca (170) won by pin fall for CampbellSavona.



Wellsville’s stat book was a study in balance Monday night, as five Lions finished with seven points or more in a 60-36 rout of visiting BathHaverling. “I have to give Bath credit, they did a great job of not giving up,” said Wellsville coach Raymie Auman. “We had a pretty good first quarter defensively. You give up six points in a first quarter, that’s a pretty good defensive effort. But then we gave up 17. That’s pretty disappointing, but our kids responded well and we did come out strong and have a good third quarter.” Pictured are Bath players. Above | Ethan Buckley. Top right | Tyler Brzezinski.
