“This is the most devastating hit that has ever been taken against the police protection of this community.” -- Sheriff Kevin Walsh, on the proposal to cut his department’s police budget by 20 percent and sell the county’s helicopter

Cutting corners Ways and Means Committee cut $45.5 million from the budget, but the ‘hows and whys’worry Mahoney and Walsh By Ami Olson The Onondaga County Ways and Means Committee had a $50 million gap to fill in the 2011 county budget, but the solutions they’ve recommended to the full Legislature – representing more than 60 changes to County Executive Joanie Mahoney’s proposed budget – have been scrutinized for a lack of long-term foresight. Mahoney’s $1.2 billion budget, released mid-September, represented a 2.7 percent property tax decrease and dropped the county tax levy $3 million. When the Ways and Means committee, chaired by Casey Jordan, 14th-R, presented its list of proposed changes on Thursday Sept. 30, the committee recommended about $45 million in adjustments through a combination of funding cuts, eliminated positions, and controversial decisions like selling the Onondaga County Sheriff ’s Department’s helicopter. But some – Mahoney and the sheriff ’s department, for starters – have voiced concerns over how and where the committee found $45 million to slash from the budget, saying that the recommendations provide only quick fixes, at best, and at worst would jeopardize county residents’ safety. The changes Mahoney said the committee did manage to find $5 million in “real” savings, mostly by cutting funding to arts and cultural programs and events, like eliminating county funding to RedHouse. “Those are things the community is going to have to debate and decide on,” Mahoney said. The committee also recommended the county close Pratt’s Falls County Park and eliminate the four employee positions there, in the hopes that it would be taken over by the town of Pompey. Jordan said the committee was also able to reduce the costs of employee benefits and pensions, thanks to early retirement of many

employees. But the rest of the cuts -- “the vast majority,” said Mahoney -- were the result of “gimmicks” and raiding savings accounts. Roughly $12 million of the savings the committee found would be pulled from fund balances, Mahoney said. “Even that’s bad, but at least it’s real money,” she said.


The Onondaga County Sheriff ’s Department helicopter, often called Air One, could be grounded and sold in June -- it is one of the more than 60 adjustments the Ways and Means Committee made to the 2011 tentative budget.

But Sheriff Kevin Walsh, who has served Mahoney’s not convinced. as sheriff for 15 years, said that idea is ri“Onondaga County hasn’t done it this diculous.

The state police helicopter in this region covers a 17-county area, Walsh said, and state police pilots are already spread too thin. “Any thought that they’re going to increase staffing in Syracuse while they’re having trouble meeting staff needs elsewhere is just ludicrous,” Walsh said. The helicopter isn’t the only hit the sheriff ’s department would take if the Legislature adopted the committee’s recommendations. Ways and Means suggested a nearly 20percent cut to the police budget, the half of the sheriff ’s $60 million budget that is not allocated for the justice center. That translates to eliminating 29 positions and zero new patrol cars; Walsh said the department receives an average of 22 new cars annually and had asked for 17 this year. “That’s the budget that really impacts the safety of the community,” Walsh said. “This is the most devestating hit that has ever been taken against the police protection of this community. It will devastate our ability to provide a safe community.” Next stop: the public From here, the 2011 proposed county budget will go to a vote of the full Legislature at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 12, with one more stop one the way: the public hearing. All county residents are encouraged to attend the public budget hearing at 7 p.m. Thursday Oct. 7 at the OnCenter ballroom. The hearing was originally set to be held in the Legislature’s chamber.

Tibetan Monks return to Syracuse By Erin Wisneski

The Tibetan Monk tour has returned to Central New York. Having found asylum in India, the Monks of Gaden Shartse are exiled from their home in Tibet and tour the world in an effort to raise awareness of their plight. “The initial tour in 2005 had such a great response,� said Dr. Joan Coff, local coordinator for the tour, adding this is the group’s third visit to the area. “After the first visit, the monks told me that CNY was one of the most open, kind places that they had had the honor of visiting. They found the people were so warm and friendly, and they would enjoy returning.� In addition to sharing their story, the monks travel around the world to spread awareness of the culture of Tibet, and share the traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. The tour also raises funds for the Tibetan refugee resettlement area in India. Since 2005, the monks have raised enough money to build a hospital, stock a library with books, buy land to grow food, increase sanitation in their community and complete a variety of other projects. While in Central New York, the monks have scheduled numerous events including the creation of a sand mandala. According to Coff, the sand mandala is a beautiful work of art and a view into the ancient culture and traditions of Tibet.

The public is invited to observe the mandala in process as the monks continue the ancient ritual. The Zen Center will open at 9:30 a.m. each morning. “[There is a] sense of community that grows among observers. Many people stay for hours to watch the construction, and return each day to see the progress,� Coff said. “I’ve seen conversations start, and new connections being made by members in our community.� Once completed (Sunday afternoon), the mandala will be swept up and distributed in Onondaga Creek in an effort to bless the waters. The Monks of Gaden Shartse will be in Central New York through Oct. 29. For complete tour details, visit

Viewpoints points Our view

The gifts that keep on taking

The primary argument in support of the Ways and Means committee’s nearly $50 million in amendments to County Executive Joanie Mahoney’s proposed budget, is that the Legislature is scrambling to find a way to at least reduce the impact of skyrocketing real property taxes for county residents. In light of this, we can’t help but be reminded of why property owners face such outrageously high property taxes next year. Though the revised sales tax formula did not directly cause property tax rates to shoot out of control, it did alter the system: Up to this year, most towns and villages used their shares of the county’s sales tax revenue to offset residents’ property taxes – on their behalves. Now that municipalities won’t be receiving “their share,” they can’t use it to pay down county property taxes, leaving residents with a seemingly sudden and exponentially increased financial burden. But is it the responsibility of the county legislature to use the budget to close the property tax gap that the new sales tax sharing agreement exposed? No – especially not if it means trading services county residents depend on for lower property taxes for some county residents. We understand that the new sharing agreement simply shed a light on what was, in a way. a misleading practice for many property owners. But let’s fix this the right way. Let’s use this opportunity to clamp down on spending at the town and village level, and try something with a little more foresight, like eliminating duplication of services and taking a progressive, careful look at consolidation. We’ve had enough done on our behalf, from the local village and town levels up to county and beyond, whether it was using the sales tax shares to offset county taxes or determining just how many fewer sheriff ’s deputies the residents of Onondaga County need on the streets and in the air. Thanks, but no thanks. Besides, does our Legislature really need to hide behind the excuse of lowering property taxes to keep our budget tight? We’d like to think not. We’d like to think that maintaining a fiscally sound government while providing residents with excellent services would be motivational enough.

Democrats, Republicans and this “Hot Mess” An important date just passed and unless you’re plugged into the American Relief and Recovery Act funding stream it will go unnoticed. The Recovery or Bailout (depending on what side of the aisle you sit on) has officially ended. If you listen to economists the “Great Recession” is over! Republicans are now sounding like Democrats as they scream “we can do it better.” This is just a hot mess. the last time there was this much upheaval was during Bill Clinton’s first term when the Democratic House and Senate went to Republicans after decades of Democratic dominance. Clinton was written off as a lame duck, soon-to-be-cast into the dustpan of history, a failed presidency, another (gasp) Jimmy Carter! But something happened to Republi-

Ken Jackson

cans on their way to governing. They actually had to put up or shut up. The Republicans and President Clinton compromised their way towards major changes ending “welfare as we know it” and leaving us with a surplus. That seems like a lifetime ago, as average people struggle to remain in place… in some cases, that place may be their home. Perhaps the best thing that could happen to President Obama is for the Republicans to take control of the House and Senate by slim margins. With no one party in absolute control of the process maybe they’ll get something done. Compromise was the key to the successes of President Bill Clinton that led to his second term. So, while I see many of my Democratic friends pre-wringing their tear stained hankies in anticipation of major losses in



the House and Senate, fear not because this may be the best thing that can happen. Voters should give Republicans the U.S. House of Representatives and United States Senate and let President Obama use his mighty presidential veto pen, the ultimate power of the presidency. If Republicans really think that giving major companies and high earning individuals tax breaks can create jobs, let’s find out. Let the Republicans present a plan of action and let’s gauge whether these companies really create new jobs. If they don’t, assess them with the tax they would have paid. Democrats, give the Republicans this hot mess and watch them work with the president because they want to get re-elected in the next cycle -- which will also be time for Mr. Obama to run for re-election.

Downtown After Dark

The Gonstermachers tour Africa Who woulda thunk it? The Gonstermachers, an offbeat Syracuse blues combo that disbanded last year, has reunited to tour Senegal, on the russtarby coast of Western Africa. The tour began Sept. 27 when the band members were pleased to hear their shows being advertised across the countryside via announcements made from a loudspeaker-truck. The U.S. Embassy in Senegal is coordinating the series of free concerts and workshops with musicians in Dakar, Thies and Louga. The band also plans to interact with the National Orchestra of the Armed Forces and the Super Etoile de Youssou Nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;dour.

Otherworldly originals Hearing Jimi Hendrix and Muddy Waters tunes played on cello should be unsettling enough, but we gotta wonder what the Africans will make of Gonstermacher originals like the otherworldly â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bushmeat,â&#x20AC;? a minor-key, double entendre rocker characterized by call-and-response vocals and cackling laughter: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quiverinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; liver anâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; a slitherinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; snail Doglog banging on the bushmeat trail.â&#x20AC;? Syracuseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quirkiest quartet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; composer and multi-instru-

mentalist Leo Crandall, harmonica master Curtis Waterman, washtub bass player Richard Curry and drummer Hymie Witthoft â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have surely dazzled their hosts with their surreal songs and odd array of instruments. Crandall himself plays cello, small-scale requinto guitar, lap steel, a ukelele-like marxolin complete with bow, hammers and whammy bar as well as his less-unusual solid-body electric guitar. And a trap-set is just one of drummer Hymie Witthoftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tools. He also plays with sticks, brushes, hands, spoons, fingers, small logs and a washboard. Talking drums â&#x20AC;&#x153;The tour is amazing,â&#x20AC;? Crandall wrote in an e-mail Sept. 30. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are jamming with Senegalese musicians in little towns and community centers. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to get some decent recordings.â&#x20AC;? The tour was scheduled to end Oct. 2. Senegalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical heritage has already bubbled up to the top of the world beat movement due to the popularity of mbalax, a fusion of Western music such as soul, blues and Afro-Cuban jazz with traditional Senegalese sabar drumming. The 51year-old Senegalese griot singer Youssou Nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dour has brought mbalax music to the world. Sabar drums are primarily used for celebrations such as wed-

The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Richard Burton Speaking of Africa, Syracuse University geographer Jim Newman has written another book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paths Without Glory: Richard Francis Burton in Africa.â&#x20AC;? History Magazine gave the book a rave review: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Delving deepest into Burtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s later life and travels, Newman pinpoints the thematic mainstays of his career as a diplomat and explorer, namely his strong advocacy of aggressive imperial policies and his belief that race explained crucial human differences.â&#x20AC;? Just as Newman revealed the very human flaws that befell another 19th century explorer, Henry Morton Stanley, in his previous book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imperial Footprints,â&#x20AC;? here he investigates the inner drives of the enigmatic Burton. Now semi-retired from SUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Maxwell School as a professor emeritus, Newman is perhaps best known for his 1995 book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Peopling of Africa: A Geographical Interpretation.â&#x20AC;? Published by Potomac Books, the 336-page Burton bio is illustrated with 32 maps and images.

Around Town JCC to host Holocaust survivor from the Shanghai Ghetto

Almost 20,000 European Jews sought refuge from the Nazis in Japanese-occupied China during World War II, and Edie Shafer was among them. Born in the Shanghai Ghetto in 1941, she spent her first seven years in the only city to which Jews could flee without a visa and gain entry. Though conditions were poor, the Shanghai Ghetto, also known as “the port of last resort,” was a haven, and Shafer considers herself one of the lucky ones because while hers is a story of great difficulty, it is ultimately one of survival. Shafer, now 69 and living in Milwaukee, Wis., will be in Syracuse on Sunday Oct. 24 at the Jewish Community Center in DeWitt, to speak about her experiences in the Shanghai Ghetto. The lecture, to begin at 3 p.m., is free and open to the public, and a reception will follow after the talk. In addition to telling her story as a child refugee,


she will also address her adjustment to and gratitude for her life in America. Shafer saw grass for the first time when she and her family first landed in Hawaii en route to San Francisco, Calif. She laughed as she recalled rolling in and touching it. “There was no grass in the ghetto,” said Shafer, an only child. “It was cement.” She remembers the relentless Shanghai heat, raw sewage running down the middle of roads and the behavior of irrational authority figures. She also remembers standing inside her father’s cigar store, a towel draped over her dad’s shoulders to wipe his brow, and feeling “proud as a peacock” that she too could have a towel. “My parents were the most important part of my life growing up,” Shafer said. “My father was always willing to help other people … my mother was stronger only in giving me all the love that I needed.” Shafer’s mission in speaking is to urge people to “care for each other, appreciate what we have and be the best person you can be.” For more information about the lecture,

Marcellus mural unveiled

Recent Marcellus graduates, from left, Zach Garrison, Colin Hewett and senior Zoe Mullan-Stout stand in front of the mural they painted this summer, which was unveiled Saturday on the side of Nojaim’s. Fellow AP art students Anne Dailey and Brennen Dooley, not pictured, assisted in the painting. To paint the mural, the students referenced a picture taken at the 1916 Old Home Days parade in Marcellus along with pictures of themselves at age 5. Mullan-Stout said painting a mural was something she always wanted to do and hopes to do more of, “just because of the community aspect of it. And I’m not a big fan of bare walls – I don’t see the point in them.” The community can hope to have few bare walls in the future, as the mural


committee, formed by Betty Tross in an effort to get the long-discussed effort off the ground, plans to continue the push. High School art teacher Donna Nicolas said she hopes to help her students get started even earlier on the next mural, immediately following their AP exam in April. The committee has renewed its fundraising efforts and donations can be made inside Nojaim’s Market, starting at $5. “You can buy a fair amount of paint with $5, so everybody’s donation really counts,” said fundraising chair Karen Hanford. - Ned Campbell

There was no imminent threat of danger at the high school Monday and the district did not go into lock down, Melvin said.

act of violence at C-NS on Monday. The alleged threat of violence resulted in law enforcement officials searching the home of a male student, who remains unidentified by school officials. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The [New York] State Police had gone to the house,â&#x20AC;? Melvin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The police found no weapons.â&#x20AC;?

Keeping her promise Founder and CEO of national organization fighting breast cancer pens memoir Growing up, Nancy G. Brinker and her sister Suzy were inseparable, with the elegant, socially poised Suzy serving as younger sister Nancy’s best friend and role model. Then in 1977, at the age of 33, Suzy was stricken with breast cancer. Three years later, having endured an uninformed doctor, surgeries that left her feeling mutilated and stripped of her sexuality and fighting through several grueling courses of chemotherapy and radiation, Susan G. Komen lay dying. Toward the end, she begged her sister to do something, anything, to make sure that other women with breast cancer would not have to suffer as she had from the ravages of this deadly disease. “Promise me, Nanny,” she said. “Promise me you won’t let it go on like this.” Her heart broken, Nancy promised: “I swear, Suzy. Even if it takes the rest of my life.” At that moment, Susan G. Komen for the Cure was born. “Promise Me: How a Sister’s Love Launched the Global Movement to

End Breast Cancer,” released in hardcover last month, is the story of how that vow launched Nancy on a 30-year-long mission to change the way the world thought of, spoke of, and treated breast cancer. Brinker’s unparalleled success at turning $200 and a list of would-be donors into a movement that has saved the lives of millions of women was recognized by President Obama in August 2009, when he awarded Brinker the Presidential Medal of Freedom. “In the months after making that promise,” the President noted, “Nancy lay awake at night wondering “Promise Me: if one person can really make How a Sister’s Love Launched the a difference. Nancy’s life is the Global Movement to End Breast answer.” Cancer” By sharing “Promise Me” By Nancy G. Brinker, author and Joni Rodgers, with your own sister or your contributor loved one, together you can Crown Archetype, publisher, Sept. 14. 2010; join the global movement to hardcover - 368 pages; $25.99 end breast cancer forever.

Mammography saves lives

The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program is urging women to get mammograms. “October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a significant time to remind women to get mammograms,” says Hillary Rutter, the director of the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program “I hope that this month women will

Approximately 95 percent of all mammograms prove to be normal.” For more information and to locate an accredited mammography facility nearby, call the Adelphi New York Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program at 800877-8077.

Seneca Federal offers an option to seniors Seneca Federal counsels senior homeowners to do what’s right for them.

Many seniors have the misconception that they can’t qualify for longterm mortgage loans because of their age. That’s just NOT true, and it’s discriminatory for mortgage lenders to deny long-term mortgage financing to seniors because of their age. Seneca Federal Savings

CANCER BEWARE Yesterday, I got out my fishing rod. I couldn’t help thinking of everyone at HOA. It was last spring when I found out. I was overwhelmed, distraught – and scared. I thought my fishing days were over. Then I went to HOA. My medical team all said, “We have the technology to fight this thing!” and showed me the CyberKnife. It sounded scary, but when I learned how it worked and how safe it was, I had hope for the first time. Your attitude really inspired me, your staff always encouraged me and your plan of action worked. I may have had cancer, but cancer never had me. Today, my kids and I are heading up to the lake.

each mortgage applicant,” said Mrs. Russo, president – CEO. She continued, “We have an old-fashioned, home financing plan to help seniors afford the homes they want to stay in. It’s hard for us to hear when a family decided to sell a home they wished to stay in when there may have been a solution they weren’t aware of or didn’t consider.” She continued, “Consolidation of debt and minimizing t heir monthly payments to free up cash they need to live on is our ultimate goal. This year, we have successfully helped seniors with these objectives and hope that we are able to reach more people and provide such assistance.”

and Loan Association promotes such financing at currently attractive fixed rates as a means to keep seniors in their homes. It’s devastating for senior to uproot from the homes they love and be force d to move w hen something as simple as a thirty-year mortgage loan or refinance may make their home more affordable than rent at an alternative residence.

Organized home care began more than a century ago and its essence has remained constant — it improves the quality of life by enabling individuals to live with dignity and independence within the comfort and security of their own homes during times of illness, disability and recuperation. There are more than 7 million Americans ranging in age from newborns to the elderly that receive home care for both acute and long-term needs. By 2040, the number of Americans over the age of 80 will triple to 26.2 million. Thus, caring for sick Americans at home will continue to assume a significant place in our health care delivery system. Professionals delivering home care range from nurses, physical and occupational therapists, home health aides, dieticians, medical social workers to speech pathologists. For patients requiring home making and personal care services, home health and personal care aides are also available. Together, these professionals are able to deliver cost effective services by reducing hospital stays and preventing or delaying institutionalized care. The cost for delivering home care is paid for by a variety of private and public sources, including Medicare and Medicaid. To learn more about home care, please contact the Visiting Nurse Association of Central New York, Inc. at 476-3101.

HOACNY Currently, we are accruing patients to over 80 different studies primarily through research administered by the National Cancer Institute. For over 24 years, HOA has been the recipient of a grant called the Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) that aims to provide cutting edge research opportunities to communities throughout the nation. To compliment what is available through CCOP, we also participate in a few studies with pharmaceutical companies. Additionally, we have authored and initiated several studies ourselves. Our participation and initiative in oncology research has garnered national attention and several awards for excellence. To our surprise, word of our outstanding res earch program has recently reached around the globe. Yair Dotan is much like any of our other patients who participate in research.

patients, Dotan travels from Tel-Aviv, Israel, to our office in East Syracuse to participate in a trail sponsored by Cougar Biotechnology, Inc. called COU-AA-302. After trying conventional treatments in Israel without success, Dotan decided to actively help his doctors find another treatment for his progressive disease. It was t h rou g h t h e w e b s it e ,, that he discovered the Cougar study, as well as facilities that were participating in this research. Through the website, he was able to contact the director of the study who suggested several clinics where this research was being conducted. Dotan’s first choice was to go to an oncology center at UCLA in Los Angeles, California. He was also considering hematology/ oncology centers in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as Syracuse. Unfortunately, he discovered there would be a significant delay in me et ing wit h do c tors and researchers at UCLA. This wait meant a delay in treatment that Dolan felt was unacceptable. After several emails and

lengthy phone conversations across the ocean with Colleen Duchano, our research RN, Dotan chose our very own Hematology Oncology Associates of Central New York. This was an easy choice as Dotan was able to meet with Dr. Gullo and begin the process of study treatment within one week of his initial contact with HOA. As an international patient who is thrilled wit h his care here at HOA, Dotan has some advice to share with all of us: “B e happy and optimistic,” and always “be a part of your own care.” Dotan shares that he is not frightened by his disease—rather he makes the most out of every day and takes it all in stride. He feels optimistic, fortunate and grateful as he is love and supported by his devoted wife, family and friends. He considers HOA a significant part of his life now and states we will forever have a place in his heart. Likewise, this courageous, gracious man and his family have touched us as we engage in his fight against cancer with and for him.

On the first two days of October, all four of the city’s Class AA high school football teams were facing each other - and the best of them remained unblemished in advance of its most important game of the season. Corcoran made it 5-0 by dominating the second half of Saturday’s game at Henninger’s Sunnycrest Park, prevailing 27-7 over the Black Knights. This came just after Nottingham improved to 2-3 on the season with a hard-fought 26-21 victory over Fowler. The fact that it was playing Henninger made sure that the Cougars could not possibly look ahead to its showdown with unbeaten Fayetteville-Manlius. A rough first half would further enforce that point. Three times, Corcoran would turn the

ball over, including a fumble and a pair of interceptions thrown by Shakem Buckmon. Henninger’s Darryl Mercer had that fumble recovery, plus one of the interceptions, as Shakim Clark got an interception of his own just before halftime. Offensively, Henninger probed with short runs and did little with it until late in the first quarter, just after Mercer’s interception. From the Cougars’ 43-yard line, Eryc Dykes threw a short pass over the middle that Chris Hicks grabbed in full stride, and Hicks sprinted up the middle all the way to the end zone. Andres Abadie’s extra point made it 7-0. Corcoran did hang on to the ball once in the second quarter, putting together a 53-yard drive. Chao Porch’s 23-yard run got it going, and from the Black Knights’ 12 Buckmon scrambled left, escaped trouble and found Anthony Heard in the end zone. Calvin Corriders added the PAT, and it was 7-7 going into halftime. It didn’t take long in the third quarter for the Cougars to assume control, helped by a dropped Henninger punt snap that put Corcoran on the Black Knights’ 15. Porch scored a few plays later, putting his team in front for good. A fierce Corcoran defense led to another punt, and the Cougars followed up with a methodical march, 40 yards that ate up more than six minutes until Jeremy Derby scored from the one in the final seconds of the period. Buckmon’s two-point run made it 21-7. Continues on next page.

Clanton hit Charles Gary for two points, cutting the deficit to 15-14 as the two sides went to the break. The Bulldogs seized the lead for good in the third quarter as Clanton threw his second TD pass, 12 yards to Phil McCarthy. Another scoring drive followed early in the final period, and Clanton capped it off with a five-yard scoring run to make it 26-15. Fowler battled to the end, Amparo running

11 yards for another TD to cut the margin to five, but Nottingham held on from there. Also on Saturday, Institute of Technology Central saw its record fall to 2-3 when it took a 43-0 loss to Pulaski. The Eagles are still 2-2 in Class C West division play, carrying faint playoff hopes as it meets Altmar-Parish-Williamstown this weekend. Other city games feature Henninger going to West Genesee (with the winner likely to reach the Class AA playoffs), Nottingham hosting Liverpool (another game with major playoff implications) and Fowler going to Utica Proctor.

Henninger could not move the ball anywhere in the second half, and the Cougars’ defense sealed its dominance with Porch getting an interception, then scoring on a 27-yard run in the closing minutes. On the offensive side, Jerry Adams led the way with 82 rushing yards. So the Corcoran-F-M clash is set, with the game to start at 7 p.m. The Hornets have outscored its five opponents 206-56, while the Cougars have beaten its foes a combined 17534. Even if Corcoran wins here, it still might have to beat Utica Proctor on Oct. 15 to get

the league title outright. Fowler, by contrast, had a more modest goal in mind when it played Nottingham - to get a victory after a winless September. But the Bulldogs wouldn’t even give them that much satisfaction. Marty Clanton’s big night began for Nottingham when he ran 16 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter, but his opposite number for Fowler, Kelvin Amparo, would push his team in front. First, Amparo ran 11 yards for a TD, and Daquan Coleman’s two-point run gave the Falcons an 8-6 lead. Early in the second quarter, Amparo threw a 12-yard scoring pass to Mar-

The Informer As if the lines between the Republican and Democratic parties arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already thoroughly blurred, former state GOP chairman J. Patrick Barrett of Manlius is backing Democrat Andrew Cuomo for governor. Though he led the state Republican committee from 1989 to 1991, Barrett appears on a 30-second pro-Cuomo TV commercial and has donated $54,940 to Prince Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign, according to the state Board of Elections.

Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amato promptly named the teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unions as the prime culprits quickly followed by the CSEA and hospital workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unions.

Paladino opposes abortion even in cases of rape or incest, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personally in favor of conceiving babies in extra-marital relationships. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty pro-life of him!
