An additional 2 to 4 inches was expected during the day and a total of 1 to 3 inches added by Monday night. Possible snow mixed with sleet in the evening was predicted to make roads dangerous for travel tonight, according
to the National Weather Service. Tuesday’s forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 36 degrees. “Travel could be very difficult to impossible,” according to the National Weather Service statement.

ALBANY — A nationwide Associated Press survey recently found the New York State Police are one of the few large-scale city and state police agencies across the U.S. that do not use body-worn cameras. The results of the study were met with a strong response from the New York Civil Liberties Union and state Attorney General Letitia James, who have called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo and lawmakers to take action.
Body-worn cameras have been used to clear authorities of wrongdoing, uncover misconduct, and paint a larger picture of what happened during high-stakes incidents, advocates and state officials say. James’ office was tasked with investigating officer-involved deaths of unarmed civilians as part of a 2015 executive order signed by Cuomo. A bill that would require state police to wear bodyworn cameras was introduced in the state Legislature this fall and backed by state Sen. Kevin Parker, D-21, and state
Assemblywoman Latrice Walker, D-55. The bill would also include state university police officers. As of Monday, the bill was still in committee. New York State Police is not alone. Hawaii, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Massachusetts also don’t have state law enforcement agencies that use body-worn cameras, according to the survey. In the Twin Counties, the Hudson Police Department is working on becoming the first full-time police agency See CAMERAS A4

Trump bars Bloomberg News journalists from campaign events President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign said Monday it would bar Bloomberg News journalists from attending its rallies and political events, an attempt to retaliate against the news organization’s decision to cease investigating Democratic candidates in the wake of its billionaire owner’s entry into the 2020 presidential race. The Trump campaign broke from years of precedent in 2016 by revoking the press credentials of journalists from outlets like The Washington Post, Politico and BuzzFeed News, an early sign of the efforts to demonize the media that have become a hallmark of the Trump presidency. But Bloomberg News is facing a fraught situation, too. After the company’s owner, Michael Bloomberg, decided last month to pursue the Democratic nomination, editors at the news outlet instructed their reporters to avoid “in-depth investigations” of Bloomberg or any other Democratic candidate. It was an attempt at fairness that some journalists called stifling. On Monday, Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, called it something else: biased. “Bloomberg News has declared that they won’t investigate their boss or his Democrat competitors, many of whom are current holders of high office, but will continue critical
reporting on President Trump,” Parscale wrote in a statement, calling the decision “troubling and wrong.” “Since they have declared their bias openly, the Trump campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events,” Parscale wrote. The campaign said it would decide “on a case-bycase basis” whether to respond to inquiries from individual reporters on stories. The editor-in-chief of Bloomberg News, John Micklethwait, quickly fired back. “The accusation of bias couldn’t be further from the truth,” Micklethwait wrote in a statement. “We have covered Donald Trump fairly and in an unbiased way since he became a candidate in 2015 and will continue to do so despite the restrictions imposed by the Trump campaign.” At the same time, few journalists have offered a robust defense of Bloomberg News’ decisions about how to cover its owner’s candidacy. Megan Murphy, a former Washington bureau chief at Bloomberg News, wrote on Twitter that it was “staggering” for the news outlet to prevent “an army of unbelievably talented reporters and editors from covering massive, crucial aspects of one of the defining elections of our time.”

Dianne K. Klinger Dianne Kathryn Bass Klinger, nee Schmuckmier, passed away on November 27. She was 85. Born in central New York, Dianne grew up on a dairy farm and graduated from high school at age 16. She received her BA from SUNY Buffalo in home economics in 1954. After marrying John Rodney Bass in 1957, she was an active Air Force spouse, living around the world and supporting the 13th Bomb Squadron. In 1964, newly widowed, she returned to her home town of Marcellus, NY, with her two young daughters and newborn son. In 1965 she was recruited, endorsed by both parties, and elected the Town of Marcellus tax collector. Dianne’s service in that elected office launched a lifetime passion for politics and commitment to the Democratic Party. She served as poll watcher, managed voter registration drives, recruited volunteers, served on various committees, and organized campaign volunteer efforts around her kitchen table – including for Hillary Clinton’s successful Senate campaign in 2000. Dianne moved to Chatham in 1972 after marrying Daniel Klinger, a local architect and Air Force reservist, and renovating a house, called Rose Hill, on the edge of the village. She substitute taught for two years until she joined the NYS Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, where she was a case manager and advocate for more than 22 years. She was again widowed in 1984. After she retired, she ran the Rose Hill Bed and Breakfast when it suited her. She volunteered for the Cooperative Extension, supported Borden’s Pond and the Columbia County Land Conservancy, and was a great supporter of local arts. Most importantly, Dianne knew everyone in the community, and her door was always open. One could usually find her sitting at her kitchen table chatting with friends and family. Dianne embraced life and adventure, always engaging new friends, new experiences and

A giant victory for animals We see it again and again in the Twin Counties. Dogs, cats and horses are abused, neglected or brutally mistreated. Now, people who commit acts of animal cruelty could face federal felony charges. President Donald Trump, of all people, signed into law a bipartisan bill that makes intentional acts of cruelty — crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating, impaling or otherwise torturing animals — a federal crime punishable by up to seven years in prison. In fairness, we don’t know what motivated Trump to sign the bill. He has moments of selfaggrandizement and inserting himself into the role of hero. Of course, maybe he is an animal lover, a
character trait he has yet to reveal. The important thing is that a federal felony charge for animal cruelty is the law of the land. Lawmakers across the board and animal rights groups alike applauded the bill and its bipartisan support. “I think it’s wonderful new legislation,” Columbia-Greene Humane Society President Ron Perez said last week. “The fact it goes out to seven years I think is spectacular. With the fed stepping into this, especially at this level, I think this is a giant win for animals.” Greene County District Attorney Joseph Stanzione and Columbia County District Attorney Paul Czajka are to be applauded for their commitment to
combat animal cruelty. Columbia and Greene counties combine to see four or five cases of some type of animal cruelty each year. Perez is unsure whether the new federal felony classification will deter more people from torturing animals, but he added, “There is a punishment in line now that I think is more in line for where a crime against an animal should be, as opposed to where it used to be.” As a rural area where animals are placed at a high premium as pets and livestock, Columbia and Greene counties ought to serve as an example of humane treatment of all animals. President Trump’s signature gives us the opportunity to lead the way.

Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., has written a letter exhorting Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to support a provision in this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would trigger crosssector sanctions on any government that tried to tamper with U.S. elections. The measure mirrors the Deter Act that Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., first introduced with Van Hollen almost two years ago. The Senate has passed by voice vote a resolution instructing the conferees currently finalizing the authorization act to take similar steps, and the House has approved a sister amend-
ment. That leaves Van Hollen with a question for McConnell: “Why are you blocking this measure in the NDAA conference?” We’re wondering the same thing - not only of the majority leader but also of the Republican committee chairmen who reportedly have their own concerns with the bill. These qualms likely have something to do with policy, process and politics all at once. Some may prefer, for example, for sanctions this far-reaching to occur at the president’s discretion. The trouble is, this president has displayed more interest in palling around with Vladimir Putin than in holding him to account. Others may protest that an ambitious bill such as this one should be debated and marked up under regular order. But that’s less convincing an argument when legislation that runs the election security gamut has been prevented from

making it to the floor at all. That leaves politics. Republicans who chafe at what they see as Democrats’ one-sided attempt to ram through a no-compromise provision should come to the table with any legitimate concerns about the bill’s language and how it might be improved. But the measure’s basic premise ought to be a nobrainer: Russia meddled in our elections. Russia wants to meddle again. The Kremlin certainly will mount a repeat offensive if we don’t give it a reason not to. Other nations wavering on whether to try their own hand at interference also learn the wrong lesson from an anemic U.S. response. Republicans are right that this issue shouldn’t be partisan. All the more reason for them to get on board and go home for the holidays without giving Russia a gift.
Elizabeth Warren is progressivism’s Donald Trump WASHINGTON — Elizabeth Warren was supposed to be the thinking person’s Bernie Sanders, impeccably progressive but with realistic arithmetic connecting aspirations to resources. Then came her explanation of how she would finance “Medicare for All.” Before Republicans wearied of pretending to care about fiscal rectitude, they pretended that they could eliminate budget deficits by eliminating “waste, fraud and abuse,” a pledge that demonstrated their familiarity with fraud. Warren prices her Medicare for All at $20.5 trillion in a decade, which is $10 trillion to $14 trillion less than estimates from serious sources (the Rand Corp., the Urban Institute, the Mercatus Center). She makes audacious assumptions that would make Republicans blush, if they still could. For example, 11% of her plan’s cost will be covered by cutting payments to providers such as hospitals (35% below current private insurance rates) and physicians (25%). Does her clairvoyance extend to how many of the former will then close and how many of the latter will retire? She assumes that states and cities, which cannot be compelled to do so, will send to Washington the $6.1 trillion they spend on health care. She assumes that her administration can collect an additional $2.3 trillion by shrinking the “tax gap,” i.e., reducing tax evasion, a decades-old aspiration in Washington that would have been accomplished already if it were possible. And so on, and on. Warren cheerily says, “No one gets left behind. ... Some of the people currently working in health insurance will work in other parts of insurance, in life insurance, in auto insurance,” which supposedly will suddenly need the 370,000 people who today work in private health insurance. She sees society as a Tinkertoy for clever people like her to disassemble and reassemble, shuffling around hundreds of thousands of people.
Never has there been such a brittle prospective presidency. Warren is vain about the specificity of her plans for expanding the federal government’s scope far beyond what either the New Deal or Great Society envisioned. Yet the entire edifice of her “transformation” of society by government spending and fiats rests upon the rickety assumption that her proposed wealth tax is constitutional. But because the Constitution forbids “direct” federal taxes, the 16th Amendment was necessary to make the income tax possible. Warren’s evident theory — that the federal government can, without an amendment, impose a general tax on accumulated wealth — implies that the term “direct” effectively prohibits nothing, so the 16th Amendment was unnecessary. Were her wealth tax to survive judicial review, and were it to have its intended effect of steadily shrinking the supply of billionaires, who then would fund progressivism’s agenda? The spending commitments would remain in place, so where would government then go for revenues? To where most of America’s money is: the middle class. Warren, whose profile in courage is to foment hostility toward a small minority (“billionaires”), should try an experiment — not at her rallies of the resentful, but with an audience of representative Americans. Ask how many in the audience own an Apple product? The overwhelming majority will raise their hands. Then ask: How many resent the fact that Steve Jobs, Apple’s innovator, died a billionaire? Few hands will be
raised. Few Americans know, but most intuit, what economist William D. Nordhaus, a Nobel laureate, argues in a 2004 paper: Innovators capture only about 2.2% of the surplus from innovation. The surplus is, basically, the innovation’s value to society, minus the cost of producing it. Warren’s dependence on a wealth tax announces progressivism’s failure of nerve, its unwillingness to require anyone other than a tiny crumb of society’s upper crust to pay significantly for the cornucopia of benefits that she clearly thinks everyone wants — but only if someone else pays for them. The way Warren has cooked the books regarding her health care financing testifies to Donald Trump’s success in normalizing preposterousness. Candidate Trump breezily promised to erase the national debt in eight years, which would have required retiring $2.4 trillion a year, a sum equal to 55% of the fiscal 2019 budget. Warren’s politically, socially and economically surreal bookkeeping is more egregious than his because she is intelligent enough to know better, and because she used ingenuity, which he does not possess, to disguise her disingenuousness. Her cache has been intellectual gravitas, supposedly demonstrated by blueprints for refurbishing everything. Suddenly “the thinking person’s Bernie Sanders” seems more like progressivism’s Trump, exacerbating social hostilities and playing fast and loose with facts. Markets, for which Warren has minimal respect, are informationgenerating mechanisms, and America’s political market is working. Her Medicare for All plan provides indispensable information, not about governance but about her. George Will’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

in their vehicle in case of an emergency. The snow started to fall in many areas in the Twin Counties early Sunday afternoon. Snowfall became heavy during the day, but slowed down later that night, according to the National Weather Service in Albany. Snowfall rates exceeded one inch per hour at times. Snow-covered roads made for dangerous travel conditions, with very low visibility, according to the National Weather Service. Snowfall totals for the Twin Counties after the storm is all said and done, are expected to be between 12 and 18 inches. Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered non-essential state employees in the Capital Region to stay home from work Monday. “I am placing National Guard personnel on standby and activating our emergency command center to ensure we are able to respond quickly and effectively to this storm,” Cuomo said in a statement Sunday. “I urge New Yorkers to exercise caution in the face of snow, black ice, and other hazardous conditions.” All public schools in the Twin Counties were closed Monday in advance of the snowstorm. Courts in Columbia and Greene counties also

to have its members utilize body-worn cameras. The village of Chatham equipped its part-time agency with the cameras several years ago. Greene County Sheriff-elect Peter Kusminsky said Monday he will be looking into body cameras for sheriff’s deputies. A spokesman for state police declined to comment. “It is not appropriate for state police to comment on proposed legislation,” Trooper Aaron Hicks, public information officer for the state police, said Monday. James’ office is using forfeiture money to fund body-worn cameras at local departments in the state. Most recently, on
were closed. Several municipal offices closed, including Germantown Town, Cairo Town and Philmont Village halls. The Columbia County Clerk and DMV’s offices at 560 Warren St. closed at 2 p.m. Monday just as more heavy snow was expected to fall. Columbia Memorial Health closed its Cairo Family Care, Windham Medical Care, Columbia Memorial Health Pediatrics in Hudson, Twin County Cardiology, and its Columbia Memorial Health Rehab Clinic. No power outages were reported to Central Hudson, NYSEG or Central Hudson as of 1:30 p.m. Monday. Utility companies are preparing for outages nonetheless. “We have line, service and tree workers at the ready to respond if the weather impacts electricity service,” according to a statement from National Grid. “We want to ensure you are prepared, too. It is a good idea to keep flashlights and extra batteries at home and to keep mobile devices fully charged so you can stay connected in the event of an outage.” “[NYSEG has] taken a proactive footing in advance of the storm, pre-staging hundreds of field personnel throughout the state to allow for a quick response should outages occur,” according to a statement from New York State Electric and Gas.
No traffic delays were reported on the Rip Van Winkle Bridge thoughout Monday, and traffic and snow was reported to be light, according to a statement from the state Bridge Authority. There was no garbage pick up in Greenport on Monday as a result of the storm. Columbia County public transportation was not running Monday due to the weather. About four minor vehicle accidents occurred in Hudson since the storm began Sunday, including when a vehicle skidded into a snow plow truck, according to the Hudson Police Department. New York State Police reported no major traffic incidents in Columbia or Greene counties as a result of the storm. Fewer drivers were on the roads Monday, which helped keep accidents and disabled vehicles down, Trooper Aaron Hicks, spokesperson for the New York State Police said. “The New York State Police have readied assets including all 4x4s, high-axle vehicles and boats for deployment as needed,” according to the governor’s office. “Troopers have been instructed to remain on high alert and to closely monitor flood prone areas for rising waters while on patrol.” What residents should do Snow plows and sanders were on the Rip Van Winkle Bridge at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, before the snow began. The state Department of
Transportation asked residents to be cautious on the roads if they have to travel. “We’ve pre-treated the roads, tuned up our snowplows and shifted resources,” according to the state Department of Transportation statement. “Stay off the roads as much as possible during the storm, and when you do venture out, don’t crowd the plows.” The Hudson Fire Department issued a reminder to residents to keep fire hydrants clear of snow. The department recommends keeping a 3-foot perimeter around the hydrant clear of snow. “Fire trucks carry a limited amount of water, so one of the first tasks upon arriving at a fire is to locate a water supply from the nearest hydrant,” according to a statement from the department. “Hydrants covered in snow can be difficult to locate, and uncovering them can waste valuable time needed during a fire fight.” Snow emergencies and parking restrictions In Catskill, snow removal parking restrictions began Sunday at 8 a.m. All vehicles should be parked on the even side of the street from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Vehicles then need to be moved and parked on the odd side of village streets from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. Vehicles will continue to alternate sides of the street every 12 hours, until the snow emergency has been canceled. Parking enforcement will remain in effect
until all snow is removed from the village’s streets. Effective Sunday from 11 p.m. until 8 a.m. there will be no parking on Main Street from Greene Street to Summit Avenue each evening to ensure that Main Street is one of the first streets to be cleared of snow. Residents who usually park on Main Street should utilize the municipal parking lots. Any vehicle violating parking restrictions will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense. For more information, call the Catskill Village Police Department at 518-943-2244. In Greenport, there will be no parking along the roads during the snow removal. Drivers could be ticketed, and the set fine is $100, plus towing fees. The owner of a passenger van and a tractor-trailer were ticketed Monday morning for failing to remove their vehicles from the town streets, according to Greenport Police Department. The village of Chatham issued a snow emergency. No parking is allowed on Kinderhook Street, Woodbridge Avenue, Cemetery Hill Road, Library Place, and Locust Street from noon Sunday until further notice, according to a statement from Mayor John Howe. Drivers are encouraged to park in the Depot Square parking lot. There is no overnight parking on Chatham village streets from 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. All 2-hour parking limits will be enforced during the snow emergency.
Nov. 1, James presented the Rochester Police Department with $163,000 for 100 bodyworn camera systems. “These funds go a long way in increasing public safety and protecting communities in Rochester and across Monroe County,” James said in a statement. But James has recognized that the biggest hurdle for state police is cost. With more than 5,000 sworn members, the division of the state police is the second largest law enforcement agency in the state and ninth largest in the nation. Hudson officials estimated body cameras cost $800 per unit, but that does not include maintenance, data storage, training and fulfilling requests from defense attorneys and the public under the Freedom of Information Law. State Police Benevolent
Association President Thomas Mungeer could not be reached for comment. Many offices in Albany were closed Monday due to a snowstorm that swept the Capital Region. In recent years, after a spate of fatal police-involved shootings sparked nationwide protests, politicians and community activists seized on police body cameras as a way to restore public trust. Approximately half of the nation’s 18,000 law enforcement agencies have some type of bodycamera program, with many still in the pilot stage. Some outfit patrol officers with the cameras, while others require everyone to wear a camera, including police chiefs. No government agency or industry group tracks the number of departments that have ended their body-camera programs. But although the cameras
were widely adopted, many departments — especially in smaller jurisdictions — are now dropping or delaying their programs, finding it too expensive to store and manage the thousands of hours of footage. Costs have spiked in recent years in some regions of the country because of new state laws that require longterm storage of video footage. Most departments that have ended body-camera programs are in smaller jurisdictions; Axon, a body-camera manufacturer, said every one of its clients that have canceled contracts cited costs. When East Dundee, a tiny suburb of Chicago, ordered body cameras for its 17 police officers, Terry Mee, the police chief at the time, told local reporters the deviceswould promote “officer safety” and “positive interaction with the
public.” But before a single incident could be recorded in the village of 3,000 people, Mee retired, and the new chief, George Carpenter, persuaded the Village Board in February to cancel the program, arguing that the $20,000 annual fee for the cameras and video storage couldn’t be justified amid budget concerns. Body cameras “are wonderful for winning public trust,” Carpenter said. “But it’s expensive.” Reporter Sarah Trafton and The Washington Post contributed to this report.
other than food trucks will be allowed, according to the letter. Lindo disagreed with the county’s assessment of the site. “I walked the parcel,” he said. “The county saying the structure was an eyesore and a nuisance is almost laughable.” Lindo said he saw dozens of dilapidated buildings along Route 23 as he drove from Cairo up the mountain. “[The letter] is a barrier to having this festival, which could lead to economic development,” Lindo said. “They’re not asking for thousands of people to come through. It’s a good first step in getting the building in good standing and back on the tax roll.” The applicants must also define when exactly the festival will be held. The current application lists November to March, according to the letter. The town contacted Kiskatom Fire Chief Joseph Caputo and asked if the fire department could respond to emergencies at the festival, Izzo said. “[Caputo] would not sign the letter until he reviewed it with the fire commissioners and the fire company,” Izzo said. Caputo’s reluctance to sign the letter is likely due to a bridge that is on site and whether the bridge is able to support the weight of fire trucks, Izzo said. Lindo said he has been in contact with Paul Colarusso, of A. Colarusso & Sons in Hudson, about evaluating the bridge. Izzo agreed getting a letter from an engineer would help planners make a decision. The problem of insurance
remains, town attorney Michael Smith said. “We are using the massgathering law to protect the town of Catskill in terms of any lawsuits,” Smith said. Smith asked for an indemnification clause to be included in the contract, he said. “Until that is reviewed and I am satisfied that the town is protected, I have serious problems with this moving forward,” Smith said. Lindo said he did not see the need for the clause. “The special-use permit under the mass-gathering law was waived,” Lindo said. The applicants have no waiver, Smith said. The town
is using the mass-gathering law as a guideline and a liability insurance policy is required as part of the application. Lindo sent an email to Town Code Enforcement Officer Elliot Fishman stating that his insurance wouldn’t allow an indemnification clause, Smith said. “They didn’t see why the town would need to ask for indemnification on private property,” Lindo said. “They didn’t say they wouldn’t do it. I don’t believe my clients have a problem with it. I needed to be able to explain it to the underwriter.” The board also requested that the tollbooth, which is
where tickets to the event would be sold, be moved further back from Route 32. The town planning board did not make any decision on the festival and will revisit it at its Dec. 10 meeting. The applicants were asked to submit revisions seven days before the next meeting, due to plans being sent last minute on Tuesday. The applicant, Lily Li, objected to the complaint, saying the plans were last minute because the board gave lastminute feedback so the plans had to be altered the day of the meeting. “Those changes were sent on Nov. 14,” Fishman said.

contiguous to the site are condemned, unsecured, dangerous and may constitute an unattractive nuisance, according to the letter. Adjacent parcels are littered with glass, debris, tiles, shingles and wood, according to the letter. When Lindo discussed the festival with the county, the primary issue seemed to be back taxes. “Before the county wanted to have a conversation about the festival, they wanted to talk about tax implications,” Lindo said. “My clients have no issue rectifying the tax issue.” Greene County Treasurer Peter Markou, who attended the meeting, said the property is behind $698,000 in taxes. To override the county’s decision, the town planning board needs five votes, Izzo said. The county made several recommendations if the town chooses to override the denial. The recommendations include restricting visitor access to the adjacent parcels, ensuring highly trained technicians set up the festival and see that it meets all electrical and fire safety codes, making sure parking areas are safe for visitors and that there are no more than 100 visitors per day. Other recommendations include a first-aid station and medical personnel on site, four portalets, eight security officers and four traffic control staff. The applicants must have proper liability insurance and no food vendors

Artemi Panarin has been the player the Rangers wanted and needed Allan Kreda The New York Times News Service
NEW YORK — Artemi Panarin’s ever-present smile and polished scoring prowess are now firmly part of the New York Rangers. With 12 goals and 21 assists in his first 25 games with the team, Panarin has been the high-scoring star with electric skills and a cheery demeanor that the Rangers wanted when they signed him as a free agent to anchor an exceptionally young, rebuilding team. “In my lifetime as a center, he’s the best winger I have played with,” said Ryan Strome, 26, who has resurrected his career with the
Rangers since a trade from Edmonton early last season. “Just the skill, how long he has the puck and holds on to it. He’s a game breaker.” Panarin, 28, provides the Rangers with a brand of offensive firepower they have not had in years, since Marian Gaborik and his two 40-goal seasons almost a decade ago and Rick Nash’s 42 goals in 2014-15. He was the marquee offseason signing of the Rangers’ new team president, John Davidson, who came from Columbus, which Panarin led in scoring the past two seasons. He is on a pace for 108 points over 82 games. The Rangers have not had a 100-point scorer
since Czech superstar Jaromir Jagr in 2005-6, when he scored a team-record 54 goals and accrued 123 points. Panarin has points in 16 of his past 18 games, including a 12-game points streak from midOctober to mid-November. He has often played on a line with Strome and Jesper Fast while also skating on the team’s top power-play unit. His dynamic play has been one of the few constants on the Rangers, who improved to 139-3 with Saturday’s road win against the New Jersey Devils. The Rangers are 5-1-1 in their past seven games after an inconsistent first six weeks of the season.
David Quinn, the second-year coach who has the task of melding a roster that on several nights has dressed seven players 21 and younger, has needed a player of Panarin’s stature, especially with first-line center Mika Zibanejad missing most of the past month with an upper body injury. “Every time this guy is on the ice, it’s fun to watch,” Quinn said of Panarin, who, similar to his Russian countryman Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals, positions himself at the top of the left circle, waiting to strike. “He’s so See RANGERS B6

Young Kings learning from Harrison Barnes’ quiet leadership Jason Anderson The Sacramento Bee
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The trade deadline hit the Kings locker room like a strike of lightning last season, creating changes in the ecosystem that are still being studied today. In a flash, Iman Shumpert, Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph were gone, shipped out in separate deals that brought Harrison Barnes and Alec Burks to Sacramento. Those moves frazzled some of the team’s young players, altering team dynamics in some interesting and stillevolving ways, but something important happened in the days after that initial jolt. Barnes showed up to work. He hung his suit neatly, laced up his shoes and quietly went about his business. He did big things and little things and lots of unnoticed things that contribute to a winning basketball culture, all with an unassuming leadership style that was never perceived as a threat to the team’s emerging young stars. They missed their departed teammates, but they respected Barnes and understood what he brought to the squad. They watched him work on his game. They saw him maintaining his body. They noticed his charitable efforts in communities across the country. “He’s the ultimate leader, not just vocally, but the way he acts,” rookie guard Justin James said. “He’s the ultimate professional. Everything he does, on and off the court, is something somebody can look up to. He’s always about doing his job.” Barnes did his job well Saturday at Golden 1 Center, scoring a season-high 30 points to help the Kings storm back from a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Denver Nuggets 10097 in overtime. The Kings (8-10) have won eight of 13 going into Monday’s game against the Chicago Bulls (614), keeping themselves in playoff contention despite
the injury-related absences of De’Aaron Fox and Marvin Bagley III. Sacramento went 0-5 to start the season, but over the past 13 games the Kings were seventh in the Western Conference and 12th in the NBA with a plus-2.3 net rating, averaging 109.1 points per 100 possessions while allowing 106.8. Last season, when Sacramento finished ninth in the West with 39 wins, the Kings were 18th in the NBA with a net rating of minus-1.2. During this stretch, the Kings have beaten the Utah Jazz, snapped the Boston Celtics’ 10-game winning streak and rallied to beat the Nuggets, who had won six in a row and 10 of their last 11. Along the way, the Kings nearly knocked off the Los Angeles Lakers and almost beat the Celtics a second time on the road. Remarkably, the Kings are playing like a playoff team. Despite their early struggles — despite the losses of Fox and Bagley — they are tied with the Phoenix Suns for eighth in the Western Conference. They wouldn’t be doing any of this without Barnes, who has been one of the team’s steadiest, most consistent players since signing a four-year, $85 million deal to stay in Sacramento over the summer. “He’s been huge for us,” Kings coach Luke Walton said. “Just his leadership on and off the court, the way he sets the example for young guys to really kind of build their professional habits around, being able to see that every day, coming into games and being a steadying force for us. Sometimes we’re out there, especially since Fox has been out, (and) it can kind of get a little wild out there, and Harrison has been that constant, calming force for our team.” Kings guard Buddy Hield echoed those sentiments following the win over Denver. “Every time they went on a run, he was able to calm us down by getting a 3 or
a post-up or getting to the basket,” Hield said. “He’s been the one that’s keeping everybody in line and in check. He’s been consistent all year.” Barnes is averaging 15.9 points, 5.0 rebounds, and career highs of 2.1 assists and 0.9 steals. He is shooting a career-best 49.7% from the field and isn’t far off his best season at 39.7% from 3-point range. Barnes says he’s just doing his job. “That’s largely my role, to come in and help where needed,” Barnes said. “Some nights it’s scoring. Some nights it’s rebounding. Some nights it’s defense. Some nights it’s simply making the right play. That’s something I try to do consistently for this team. We have a lot of talent. We have a lot of people who can do a lot of different things. For me, my biggest job is just to fill in the gaps.” His style is quiet, simple and understated, but his influence is undeniable. “Harrison is one of the best professionals in this game,” Kings guard Cory Joseph said. “He approaches the game every day, whether it’s a game or practice, the same way, so just seeing him and the way he approaches the game is big for the young guys because we have a young group.” Fox sits on one side of Barnes’ locker. James sits on the other, watching him work, noticing the little things he does to maintain his mind, his body and his game. “On the court, he’s super calm, always calm and collected,” James said. “He doesn’t let anybody rattle him. He’s always playing his game. And then off the court, he’s always doing the right things. He’s always trying to make his body better. He’s always trying to improve his game. I pride myself on trying to be the first guy here, and he always beats me here. There are just so many things that HB brings to this team.”
Grizzlies to score in double figures. Grayson Allen and Solomon Hill added 13 and 11 points off the bench. Karl-Anthony Towns scored 21 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, but Minnesota otherwise lacked scoring punch. Andrew Wiggins finished with 18 points, almost eight below his season average. Pistons 132, Spurs 98 Center Christian Wood poured in a careerhigh 28 points and grabbed 10 rebounds off the bench as host Detroit routed San Antonio for its largest margin of victory of the season. Wood’s previous career high was 26 points for Milwaukee last season. He was claimed off waivers by Detroit during the offseason. Luke Kennard scored 20 points as seven Pistons reached double figures. Pistons center Andre Drummond chipped in nine points, including his 8,000th career point, and pulled down 16 rebounds. DeMar DeRozan led the Spurs with 20 points. Lonnie Walker IV scored 13 off the bench and Rudy Gay added 12. Drew Eubanks chipped in nine points and eight rebounds,
but San Antonio was outscored 73-47 after halftime. Thunder 107, Pelicans 104 Chris Paul scored seven points during a pivotal 12-0 run late in the fourth quarter as Oklahoma City defeated host New Orleans. The turnaround was similar to one less than 48 hours earlier, when the host Thunder scored the final six points to beat the Pelicans 109-104. Danilo Gallinari led Oklahoma City with 23 points and 11 rebounds on Sunday, Steven Adams had 17 points and 10 rebounds, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Dennis Schroder scored 17 each. Jrue Holiday led the Pelicans with 26 points, Brandon Ingram added 20 and Lonzo Ball chipped in 14. The Thunder made 20 of 26 free throws, while the Pelicans were 9 of 10. Raptors 130, Jazz 110 Pascal Siakam scored 35 points on 14-for22 shooting, and Toronto led by 40 at the half before cruising by visiting Utah. Fred VanVleet added 21 points and 11 assists for the Raptors, who are 9-0 to open the season at home, a franchise record. They also are on a season-best seven-game winning streak overall. Mike Conley had 20 points for the Jazz, who have lost three of their past four games on a five-game road trip. Jeff Green added 19 points, and Donovan Mitchell had 16 points, followed by Rudy Gobert with 12 points and 11 rebounds and Bojan Bogdanovic with 11 points. Magic 100, Warriors 96 Markelle Fultz created the sixth lead change of the fourth quarter with a driving layup with 2:22 remaining, and Orlando held on to defeat visiting Golden State. Evan Fournier scored a game-high 32 points for the Magic, including a layup that extended a one-point lead to 98-95 with 9.3 seconds left. Alec Burks’ 3-point attempt hit the back of the rim with time almost expired, and Aaron Gordon grabbed the rebound and sank the game-clinching free throws. The Warriors made just six of their 23 3-point attempts in the game and were outscored 33-18 on 3s by the team that entered the contest with the NBA’s worst 3-point shooting percentage. The Warriors’ 17th loss is the most by any team in the NBA.
NHL roundup: Streaking Bruins, Pastrnak top Canadiens again Field Level Media
David Backes scored the game-winner during a three-goal surge in the third period, as the Boston Bruins rallied past the visiting Montreal Canadiens 3-1 Sunday night. David Pastrnak and Jake DeBrusk also tallied in the third, as the Bruins extended their winning streak to seven straight and their points streak to 11 (8-0-3). Tuukka Rask stopped 28 shots in net to help Boston remain undefeated in regulation at home (11-0-4). Joel Armia scored for the Canadiens, whose losing streak extended to eight games (0-5-3). Carey Price had 31 saves and carried a shutout into the third period before the wheels came off. Pastrnak tied the game at 1-1 with a wicked onetimer from the right circle
off the post at the 6:16 mark of the third. Pastrnak, who had a hat trick in a rout of Montreal five days prior, extended his league lead in goals to 25. Oilers 3, Canucks 2 Leon Draisaitl’s second goal of the game early in the third period was the winner as Edmonton won at Vancouver to split a home-and-home series on consecutive nights. Oilers goalie Mikko Koskinen made 30 saves and earned the victory thanks to Draisaitl’s marker 46 seconds into the final frame, his second power-play goal of the night. While the defenders were focused on his teammates, Draisaitl found a soft spot at the bottom of the right circle and quickly released the shot after taking a feed.

NFL Week 13: The Ravens are closers and the Patriots are lacking has led the Jaguars to an 0-3 record, losing by an average of 19 points while gaining a paltry 6.1 yards per attempt. It’s not really fair to evaluate Foles based off this season, but the NFL doesn’t always permit fairness. The Jaguars will have to decide whether to trade Foles and move forward with Minshew on a rookie contract. They will also have to decide who makes that decision. Team president Tom Coughlin and Marrone will both be evaluated this offseason. Since the Jaguars made the AFC championship game and nearly toppled the Patriots in New England two seasons ago, they have gone 9-19 and traded Jalen Ramsey, one of the best players in franchise history. Owner Shad Khan has some mulling to do. - It’s over for the Browns. And the only question left is, will Coach Freddie Kitchens survive? The Browns revived their season with three consecutive victories, and playing the Steelers with third-string quarterback Hodges gave them an ideal opportunity to sneak back into the muddled AFC wild-card picture. Back in August, the Browns were a chic Super Bowl pick. Sunday, they couldn’t beat Duck Hodges to save their season. The 20-13 loss dropped the Browns to 5-7 while the Steelers improved to 7-5, and while the Browns are still technically alive, the combination of their schedule, their year-long underachievement and the suspension of defensive end Myles Garrett ensures they will be home for January. How the Browns’ promise unraveled is a complicated matter, but much of the blame falls at the feet of Kitchens, the rookie head coach tasked with managing talent and expectations unfamiliar in Cleveland. The Browns have been disorganized and undisciplined all year long, stale on offense and inconsistent on defense. Quarterback Baker Mayfield regressed, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. went underutilized, and penalties piled up to preposterous degrees. They were a mess, and the squandered season demands the Browns evaluate whether Kitchens is the right person to salvage things next season. - The Chargers invented another new way to lose. It is an image every bit as reliable as the ticking clock on “60 Minutes”: Philip Rivers flapping his arms and screaming around the line of scrimmage late in the fourth quarter, with his Chargers sitting on somewhere between 17 and 24 points, down by a field goal or so, about to do something crazy, brave, amazing, stupid, unbelievable or all of those things combined. Sunday’s entry into Rivers’s Pantheon of the Insane happened like this. Down by three, the Chargers turned a fourth and one at their own 34 into a fourth and 11 at their own 24 with consecutive false start penalties. Rather than punting, Rivers heaved a prayer deep to Mike Williams, who made a miraculous catch with one hand and a defender draped on him. The Chargers couldn’t pick up one more first down, leaving 14 seconds on the clock.
Adam Kilgore The Washington Post
The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers faced each other in a showdown Sunday that provided a reminder of how little anybody knows about the NFL. In the preseason, neither team was considered a serious Super Bowl threat - the 49ers had picked second overall in the draft. In Week 13, they played a taut game in freezing rain that left both at 10-2 and among the favorites to meet in Miami two months from now. But their dual ascent would have been easy to predict compared to what else happened Sunday. Devlin Hodges led the Pittsburgh Steelers to their sixth win in seven games, effectively knocking out Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns. The New England Patriots are 10-2 but seem as vulnerable as they have been in recent seasons. The Miami Dolphins stunned the Philadelphia Eagles, who are still hanging on in the NFC East because the Dallas Cowboys lost on Thanksgiving to the Buffalo Bills - who are 9-3.

In the Central Hudson Valley League, Germantown will once again be at or near the top of the league standings, thanks to the return of standouts Bryan Bathrick and Robbie Eaton. Ichabod Crane finished below .500 in the stacked Colonial Council a year ago, but looks to improve this year and has already won its second straight Rensselaer Tip-Off Tournament title heading into league play.

PATROON CATSKILL Coach: Doug Lampman Last year: 18-4 (Patroon cochamps) Returnees: DeVon Haye (6-6, senior), Bervonis Donely (6-4, senior), Melik Christian (5-9, senior), Logan Scott (65, junior), Kellen Gibbs (5-11, sophomore), Cameron Lyles (510, junior). Newcomers: Ronnelle LoweScott (5-11, senior), Lavon Fernandez (6-4, senior), Leviticus Johnson (6-2, junior), Emmanuel McEachern (5-10, senior), Jonathan Kent (5-8, junior). Coach’s comments: We lost a huge piece with 3-year starter Justice Brantley leaving. He has joined his teammate Justin Worth (and Kimedrick Murphy of Hudson) in representing Utica College. I was able to see them scrimmage SUNY Cobleskill and they all looked ready for the challenge of the upcoming season. My expectations are that they come to practice every day to work to be the very best basketball player they can be. We also expect them to represent themselves off the court as leaders and high quality student/ athletes. We have a tough non league schedule. We open with Mekeel Christian Prep school in the Kirvin Cup and then Niskayuna or Mohonasen in the next game. We have a non-league vs. Cohoes and one against an unnamed opponent in the North South Classic at the Washington Avenue Armory. I have a group who has to get to know each other. With some returning players, and some new student/athletes, we have to continue to develop chemistry. How well we gel as a unit will go a long way toward our final product. Right now we are focused, but we definitely have to continue to evolve if we are to compete with the top programs. Time will tell.
HUDSON Coach: Shawn Briscoe
Rangers From B1
elusive. He’s got such great vision, such a smart hockey player. He’s feeling more and more comfortable. He’s just in a really good place.” Part of that good place is the life Panarin is crafting with his girlfriend, Alisa Znarok, and their Jack Russell terrier, Riziy, which means “redhead” in Russian. During his early months with the Rangers, his Instagram account showed them enjoying Manhattan, though they have since settled into a home in Greenwich, Connecticut, where Riziy playfully poses for photos for his own Instagram account. “I love dogs,” Panarin said with a broad grin. “Maybe more than humans.”
Last year: 13-8 Returnees: Dayquan Griffin (Senior), Noah Hedgepeth (Junior), Caleb Romano (Sophomore). Newcomers: Isaiah Maines (Sophomore), Neville Anderson (Junior), Brandon Alexander (Sophomore), Victor Gorman (Junior), Kasey Moore (Junior), Tavaun Gordon (Senior), Charles Daly (Junior), Nate Johnson (Junior), George DeJesus (Junior) Coach’s comments: With only a few returners we have a young squad this year, but a very hungry and scrappy team. Team chemistry seems to be something that is a strong point for us as the guys early on look to be playing well together. We are going to try and pride ourselves on defense to help generate some offense that we’ve lost. I think this team has the potential to be much better than we were last year and we are going to make sure we continue to compete at the top of the conference and hopefully the section as well. I am looking for our few returning players to help lead the younger players to understanding the level of play that we will need to have to be successful. We still have a first-team AllConference player in Dayquan Griffin in the post and Noah Hedgepeth, who we are looking to become a more efficient scorer and shooter. Romano is a headsy player and does a little bit of everything and is used to the big stage as he was the starting QB for our football team this year so he knows how to compete. With our JV guys coming up to us we feel that we are going to be competitive. Maines, Gorman and Moore can shoot the ball well and had very nice seasons last year so we are looking to them to help us this year as well as the addition of Neville Anderson who can run the point as well as shoot the ball. I think we have some pieces that work well together and should lead to a fun and exciting season.
up into larger offensive roles this season. I also have high hopes for several other first year varsity players. Defensively, we took a hit over the summer when Ryan Thorsen injured his knee but I believe we have the potential to have another strong defensive season. To me this will be the key to our season. If our players buy into our system and we can sustain our intensity defensively I believe we will have another very competitive season this year.
COXSACKIE-ATHENS Coach: Dennis Kiefer Last year: 12-9 Returnees: Aiden Boehm (63, senior), Kane Schrader 96-1, senior), Killian Schrader (6-1, senior), Timmy Simmons (5-11, senior), Josh Kiefer (6-0, junior). Newcomers: Andon Roe (6-1, junior), Isaiah Richardson (511, junior), Casey Carroll (5-10, sophomore), Dillon Hynes (6-0, sophomore). Coach’s comments: We have a good core of returning players with starting experience and plenty of Varsity minutes under them. I expect the team to work hard and compete for 32 minutes every night, and hopefully that will keep us in most games. We’ll have to stay healthy all year in order to spread the minutes around.
GREENVILLE Coach: Dane Carpenter Last year: 9-12 Returnees: James Mitchell (58, junior), Damien Fiducia (6-0, junior), Joe Nicosia (6-1, senior), Ben Lewis (6-1, junior), Tim Biernacki (6-0, senior). Newcomers: Jackson Makely (6-2, junior), Miles Weiss (6-0, junior), JJ O’Connor (5-10, junior), Coby Benning (5-10, junior), Trey Smith (6-1, sophomore). Coach’s comments: Our team goal is to improve daily and contend in the Patroon for the league championship.
Coach: John Thorsen Last year: 16-6 Returnees: Zach Gregg (510, senior), Caleb Jeralds (6-1, senior), Quinten Kastner (5-10, senior), Ed Tice (6-0, senior), Thomas Van Tassel (5-11, senior), Jayshawn Williams (6-2, junior), Ryan Thorsen (5-11, senior ... ACL injury). Newcomers: Casey Sitzer (61, senior), Spencer Ford (5-9, junior), Nick Jennings (5-9, junior), Mateo Talbot (5-9, junior), Tobias Jeralds (5-10, sophomore), Matthew Thorsen (6-1, freshman), Jacob Baccaro (6-2, freshman). Coach’s comments: This season should be interesting in the Patroon Conference. I believe Catskill is clearly the team to beat coming in. Their program is heading in the right direction and with a couple key transfers they will be very difficult to handle in the Patroon. We have a great group of kids that I have been working with since the boys were in third and fourth grade. Jayshawn Williams returns from an outstanding sophomore season and we certainly expect good things from him this year. We know he will be the focus of many of the defenses we face so we hope that Quinten Kastner, Thomas VanTassel and Zach Gregg will step
Coach: Tom Super Last year: N/A Returnees: Ryan Nowak (senior), Zach Colwell (senior), Warren Bradway (senior), Mason Nack (senior), Brian Teator (senior), Kyle Delamater (junior), Joel Preusser (junior). Newcomers: Dylan Myers (junior), Aspen Krzeminski (junior), Noah Winters (junior), Nole Atwood (junior), Bryce Atwood (sophomore). Coach’s comments: This years team will play hard, help each other, and try to improve every time we get on the court. Although we may lack some size, our quickness will help. Expectations for this year is to compete at the best of our ability and strive to be the best we can be. I’m sure there will be some bumps in the road during the season; however, with a lot of senior leadership, that should not be an issue. As a program, we are looking to improve and get back to sectionals. There is a strong core coming up over the next several years. The future is looking bright and this current team has to set the foundation. I expect many things out of Senior point guard Ryan Nowak. Ryan will be the catalyst on both sides of the floor. Teammate Zach Colwell will also be expected to play heavy minutes and will probably lead the team in rebounds. Also returning with some varsity minutes is Kyle Delamater, Warren Bradway, and Joel Preusser. Any one of these three could be
Panarin grew up in Korkino, a coal-mining town of about 40,000 people about 1,100 miles east of Moscow. He was adopted and raised by his maternal grandparents after his parents divorced when he was an infant. His grandfather Vladimir Levin, a former amateur player, supported and motivated young Artemi. His earliest ice lessons were at the Traktor ice hockey school in Chelyabinsk, about 25 miles from Korkino. Panarin eventually played parts of seven seasons in the Kontinental Hockey League, including a 2015 championship with SKA St. Petersburg. “There is nothing like, ‘OK, I’m just going to stop here and this is OK for me,’ “ Znarok said of Panarin. “He puts pressure on himself to get better and better. It makes me proud.”
At 23, Panarin signed with the Chicago Blackhawks, with whom he won the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s best rookie in 2015-16 playing alongside Patrick Kane. After two seasons each with the Blackhawks and the Blue Jackets, Panarin was an unrestricted free agent last summer, and one distinct option emerged. “I just sat down for 10 minutes and really thought about it, and my heart told me that New York would be the better place for me,” Panarin said after signing a seven-year, $81.5 million contract with the Rangers in July. “I dreamed of playing for the Rangers. I like the people here. I feel the energy.” Panarin, after being in the shadow of Kane and Jonathan Toews in Chicago and lacking national news media attention in Columbus, is in
the leading scorer on a given night. Regardless of wins and losses, this is truly going to be a team effort.
MAPLE HILL Coach: Scott Hanrahan Last year: 19-3 (Patroon cochamps) Returnees: Rian Jewett (511, senior), Blake Decker (6-5, junior), Logan McGarvey (6-3, junior), Jack Utter (5-11, junior), Dominic Hirschoff (6-1, junior). Newcomers: Owen Hurysz (5-11, junior), Justin Sober (6-2, junior), Tyler Shaw (5-8, junior), Davin Sherwood (6-6, junior), Ben Marra (5-10, sophomore), Landon Flach (5-10, sophomore). Coach’s comments: We will look heavily to Rian Jewett and Blake Decker to lead the way. Rian, our only senior, is a lightning quick guard and can really shoot. Decker has grown to 6-5, 260 pounds and will be able to play inside and out. The other six are all new. We are young and learning but these guys have played a lot of basketball together over the years and they have good chemistry. The good news for us is that there are a lot of spots open for guys to have the opportunity to fill so practice gets to be competitive every day.
COLONIAL ICHABOD CRANE Coach: Will Ferguson Last year: 6-14 Returnees: Edward Ogden (6-1, senior), Zach Kennedy (6-2, senior), Austin Walsh (63, senior), Mike Vecellio (5-10, senior), Cameron Holzhauer (6-3, senior), Joseph Dolan (61, junior), Asah Mulica (5-11, sophomore), Brett Richards (64, sophomore). Newcomers: Justice Suafoa (5-11, junior), Avery Clickman (5-11, sophomore), Tim Wheeler (6-4, freshman), Alex Schmidt (5-10, freshman), Dylan Colwell (6-1, freshman). Coach’s comments: Very young this year — 3 freshmen, 3 sophomores, 2 juniors, 5 seniors. Lost some key younger players from last year. We have good but young and inexperienced big men. Personnel playing in each game will depend entirely on match ups against the other team. Freshmen and sophomores are expected to play. We are athletic with above average speed. Hope to improve on last year’s record but Colonial Conference is very tough. We will need to gel early and gain some game experience in the first half of the year. Expect to see improved play in the second half of the season.
CHVL GERMANTOWN Coach: Derrick Conte Last year: 16-6 Returnees: Bryan Bathrick (6-4, senior), Robert Eaton (5-10, junior), Jace Anderson (6-3, senior), Dylan Mayr (510, senior), Jamie Decker (6-0, senior), Rece Rifenburg (6-0, junior). Newcomers: Keshawn McKinney (6-0, senior), Josh Sanzo (5-9, junior), Ryan Hoffman (59, junior), Tyler Hohensheldt (5-9, junior), Cameron Quinn (5-10, junior). Coach’s comments: We have a great blend of returning players and first year varsity players. Right now, we are doing our best to be prepared for our first game. the spotlight in New York. In recent home games, he has taken to celebrating goals and other accolades with a Rockettes-style high kick. He has waded into waters few Russian sports stars have, criticizing President Vladimir Putin in an interview published in July, shortly after he signed with the Rangers. Panarin said it was unfair that Putin’s government had been focusing on economic development in Moscow and St. Petersburg at the expense of the rest of the country, including his home city. After games, Panarin prefers to speak through an interpreter, even as the scrums of reporters grow along with his point totals. After a two-goal outburst in a 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals on Nov. 20, he spoke briefly about his impact on the Rangers’ roster.

said and what people think. I expect fans to be upset, because we are, too.” This is an abysmal run for the Giants, who came into the season harboring playoff hopes, but are now careening toward a record so bad that they might end up with the first overall draft pick. Shurmur insists he sees signs of improvement during practice and in games from his young team. But in a resultsbased industry in which you are judged by winning and losing, he is presiding over a team that is as bleak as the wintry mix that shrouded MetLife Stadium in gloom Sunday afternoon. How bad has this team become? The Giants might be the worst team in football. Even the previously winless Bengals squeezed out a win over the Jets in Cincinnati. And the Dolphins, who started off 0-7 before beating the Jets, beat the Eagles at home on Sunday for their third win of the season. Shurmur might want to believe that there is improvement, but the empirical evidence is missing. This is the NFL, whose “on any given Sunday” credo means even the worst teams stand a chance of winning. But the Giants are putting forth one of the worst seasons in franchise history and are only one loss from tying the franchise record of nine straight losses. That ignominious mark came in 1976, at the peak of the worst days of the team’s nearly century-long history. Bill Arnsparger was fired midway through that season and replaced by John McVay, who lasted through 1978 before a housecleaning that brought general manager George Young to the Giants and began a decades-long run of prosperity. But the Giants of the last eight seasons are disturbingly reminiscent of those brutal years. Sunday was another reminder of how bad things have gotten. Not only did the crummy weather keep many Giants’ fans away, but chants of “Go Pack go!” from Packers fans underscored the malaise now enveloping this franchise. It was an unwelcome 65th birthday president for team president and CEO John Mara, who can never forget the scorn he witnessed — and felt firsthand — from fans frustrated by the team his father, Wellington, presided over. John Mara hated going to school

non-league boys basketball game at the Washington Avenue Armory. The Falcons jumped out to a 19-15 lead after one quarter of play and extended the gap to 40-31 at halftime and 5735 after three. Kevin Seel II topped Albany High with 22 points. Shamar Mercharles, the Falcons’ 6-9 center, added 21. “We played well just missed some easy ones around the basket and couldn’t get enough stops down the stretch,” Hudson coach Shawn Briscoe said. “I liked what I saw tonight from the guys, though, against a very athletic and long Albany team.” Dayquan Griffin poured in 31 points for Hudson. Noah Hedgepeth drained
back then, knowing that his classmates would make fun of his family’s team because of its routinely pathetic performances. Like his father before him, John must now chart the course for the future by deciding either to give Shurmur and GM Dave Gettleman more time to develop the team, or to remove one or both men. Mara bears his own responsibility in what has happened. He has now missed on two coaches since parting ways with Tom Coughlin after the 2016 season. First was Ben McAdoo, who didn’t even last two seasons. And now Shurmur, who was well-regarded by both Mara and Gettleman but has failed to coax more wins out of this team. Shurmur suggested the Giants’ ability to keep things close against the Packers — they got to within 17-13 midway through the third quarter — was another sign of improvement. But there was virtually no chance that they could stay with the 9-3 Packers and future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who blew the game open in the fourth quarter. Rodgers had four touchdown passes against a defense that has been at the heart of the Giants’ problems this season. Shurmur’s offense, meanwhile, wasn’t any better. Daniel Jones had some nice throws early on, including an 18-yard touchdown to Sterling Shepard in the first quarter. But Jones’ turnover problems surfaced yet again, this time in the form of three interceptions that left him with a 49.4 rating. Jones has certainly shown promise for a rookie quarterback, and there are moments when you can envision him one day flourishing at this level. But he is unable to avoid the kinds of rookie mistakes that so many others make. “There’s no better training ground than playing, and unfortunately, we’re dealing with some mistakes that you hope that you never see again,” Shurmur said. “We’re fortunate that he’s tough, he’s smart, he gets it.” Now it remains to be seen whether Shurmur will be the one to continue shepherding Jones through his career and whether Gettleman deserves to continue the roster-building process. Or whether Mara will decide the results simply can’t justify maintaining the status quo. In the end, the decision might be made for him. If the losing continues, there will simply be no other choice. five 3-pointers, en route to a 21-point performance. “Dayquan was a beast down low and the guards did a nice job finding him and Noah shot the ball very well,” Briscoe said. “We will get back to the lab and work out the kinks a and be ready for Taconic Hills at home.” The Bluehawks (0-1) host the Titans on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. HUDSON (68): Hedgepeth 8-0-21, Maines 2-0-4, Anderson 2-0-4, Griffin 119-31, Moore 1-0-2, Gorman 1-0-2, DeJesus 1-0-3, Johnson 0-1-1.

Trucker parks too long in son’s small apartment Dear Abby, My widowed mother-in-law, “Minnie,” works full time as a trucker, traveling around the U.S. She doesn’t have a home of her own since she lives on the road. My husband and I live in a small one-bedroom apartment. DEAR ABBY When she’s here for holidays or family functions, she always sleeps on our couch. At first I didn’t mind once or twice for holidays, but since my niece was born, Minnie wants to be home more to visit with her. My husband’s brother has a large home and plenty of space, but Minnie never stays there because she doesn’t like my sister-in-law. Minnie is also irresponsible about letting us know when she’s coming and how long she will be staying. One night can turn into a week. I have had many conversations and some blowout fights with my husband over this issue. He’s the older brother and feels guilty about asking her to stay at a hotel. My sisterin-law doesn’t help the situation. She sabotages holidays and events to ensure Minnie won’t feel comfortable staying there. I don’t know how I will manage to get through the holidays this year. Help! Dreading It In The East
Blowout fights with your husband are detrimental to your marriage. Because he appears to be unable to summon the backbone to have an honest conversation with his mother, I guess it’s up to you. Explain to Minnie that the current arrangement isn’t working. Tell her twice-a-year visits for holidays and family functions were
manageable, but in the future, if she’s unwilling to stay in her younger son’s home, she should arrange to stay at a hotel or motel for those “extra” visits. Dear Abby, Some of my extended family members have become vegan. When they come to my home, I make sure to have appropriate food for them, in addition to nonvegan food for others. When I am invited to their homes for a celebration, they offer only vegan selections. No one is allowed to bring nonvegan or meat-based dishes to their home. It has reached the point that I no longer want to go there when a meal is involved. I have tried talking to them about this, but their reply is, “No meat allowed in our home.” I now leave before mealtime because I don’t like a lot of their dishes. Is it common for vegans to prohibit guests from ever taking other food into their home? Thanks for any light you can shed on this. Meat Lover In Houston People become vegans for a variety of reasons. Some do because they feel it is unethical to kill animals for food. Others do it because they feel raising animals for slaughter is harmful to the planet. People also become vegans for health reasons. Individuals who adopt this way of life often feel as your relatives do, and that’s their privilege. If it impinges on your freedom or limits your enjoyment of these celebrations, forgo them and either participate in get-togethers that don’t include food or go to an accommodating restaurant.
Water restriction is the key to treating too-low salt levels A few years ago, while skiing in Utah, I became violently ill and could barely walk. I called 9-1-1 and was taken to the hospital, where I was diagnosed with hyponatremia. It took a week in the hospital to recover. My internist eventually prescribed 1 gram of salt/sodium a day and to not drink too much water. Even though I take the TO YOUR gram of salt a day and salt my GOOD HEALTH food, the salt level in my body continues to remain low at 130-135. Sometimes my legs get shaky, which is my body telling me when the salt level is too low, so I take another gram of salt. Neither my doctor nor any other has ever been able to tell me what causes this problem. I am 87 years old, 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weigh 130 pounds; my blood pressure is normal, with 20 mg Lisinopril, and I am in relatively good health. If I were in an assisted living facility where they do not serve salt in food, I’d probably be dead. As there may be others who have this problem who are in assisted living, I would appreciate your thoughts on this.

I think the most likely diagnosis is that you
have the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion. SIADH can happen in people with any kind of brain injury, with some cancers, lung diseases and due to drugs. However, in older people, it frequently comes on with no clear reason. The diagnosis of SIADH is made by a thorough evaluation. A kidney specialist would be most expert in diagnosing this condition. Very low sodium levels are extremely dangerous. The body needs to precisely regulate sodium, and very low levels can cause severe and permanent damage, even death. Although the salt (sodium) level is low in the blood, salt is not the primary problem for the vast majority of people with this disorder: Water is. Your internist’s advice to not drink too much water was absolutely correct, as water restriction is the primary treatment for this condition, something that can be quite challenging for people to follow. Taking salt by mouth may also be necessary, but can never overcome excess water intake. A goal sodium of 130-135 is reasonable for most people.

Horoscope By Stella Wilder Born today, you are a game player, and you know how to make even the hardest job seem like a good time — for yourself and for those working with you. You have an adventurous spirit, and the will to do whatever you want whenever you want, unfettered by the kinds of concerns, expectations, suspicions and preconceptions that so often hold others back. You yearn to travel, and until you have the means to do so, you will satisfy your wanderlust with books, magazines, pamphlets — and dreams, which are just as vivid and realistic, if not more so, than the experiences you long to have. You strive to keep your life in balance at all times, focusing especially on the relationship between the personal and the professional. You are the kind who wants it all and who isn’t content to sacrifice personal contentment for professional gain. Gain without happiness is, to you, a sham and something you can do without.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — Giving someone a taste of his or her own medicine may sound like a fine idea, but in the end, you won’t secure the results you’re after. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You may have to wade through something that is more of an an-
noyance than anything else — though yes, it had to be done. Get back on track. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — What happens today is likely to remind you of something that happened quite some time ago, but this time the outcome may be very different.
