Planning Â Board Â Discusses Â Park Â Point
By Â Carolyn Â Quimby
A&E Â Editor Â | Â Carolyn.firstname.lastname@example.org
The Â New Â Paltz Â Town Â Planning Â Board Â met Â on Â Feb. Â 25 Â to Â discuss Â the Â Final Â Environmental Â Impact Â Statement Â (FEIS) Â IRUWKH3DUN3RLQWSURMHFWDVZHOODVWKHSRWHQWLDOÂżVFDOLP-Â pacts. During Â the Â public Â forum, Â town Â resident Â Paul Â Brown Â made Â comments Â concerning Â Wilmoriteâ€™s Â presentation Â to Â the Â Ulster Â County Â Industrial Â Development Â Agency Â (IDA) Â on Â Feb. Â 13 Â and Â their Â tax Â exemption Â application. Â Brown Â said Â Wilmorite Â is Â applying Â for Â three Â exemptions, Â including Â a Â payment Â in Â lieu Â of Â taxes Â (PILOT), Â sub-Âlease Â transaction Â and Â a Â mortgage-Âtax Â for Â a Â 25-Âyear Â period. Â If Â the Â ,'$DSSURYHV:LOPRULWHÂśVDSSOLFDWLRQKHVDLGWKHIRUSURÂżW developer Â could Â pay Â â€œunder Â $200,000â€? Â annually Â while Â sav-Â ing Â themselves Â nearly Â $1.5 Â million. Â Âł7KHSRWHQWLDOÂżVFDOLPSDFWVRQWKHWRZQRI1HZ3DOW] the Â New Â Paltz Â Central Â School Â District Â and Â Ulster Â County Â â€” Â the Â three Â taxing Â authorities Â â€” Â can Â only Â be Â accurately Â evalu-Â ated Â once Â you Â gather Â the Â information, Â once Â you Â know Â how Â much Â the Â taxing Â authorities Â would Â lose Â over Â the Â next Â 25 Â years,â€? Â Brown Â said. Â Before Â the Â meeting, Â Wilmorite Â submitted Â a Â 63-Âpage Â document Â to Â the Â Planning Â Board, Â which Â included Â a Â one-Âpage Â table Â of Â contents Â and Â â€œconsolidated Â public Â comment,â€? Â ac-Â cording Â to Â Wilmoriteâ€™s Â Director Â of Â Business Â Tom Â George.
â€œWe Â did Â a Â follow Â up Â to Â the Â public Â comment, Â the Â written Â comment, Â [and] Â the Â transcripts Â â€” Â everything Â that Â was Â col-Â lected...was Â then Â organized,â€? Â George Â said. Â The Â table Â of Â contents Â listed Â sections Â A Â through Â T, Â which Â included Â topics Â like Â soils, Â geography, Â topography, Â surface Â and Â ground Â water, Â then Â all Â corresponding Â public Â comments Â were Â organized Â under Â each Â heading. Â While Â Wilmorite Â is Â still Â in Â the Â process Â of Â organizing Â the Â comments, Â George Â said Â they Â plan Â to Â create Â a Â response Â docu-Â ment, Â which Â will Â be Â formatted Â for Â the Â FEIS. Â He Â also Â said Â they Â will Â submit Â a Â â€œdocument Â matrixâ€? Â or Â spreadsheet, Â listing Â every Â person Â or Â agency Â that Â supplied Â comments. Â â€œThis Â is Â basically Â going Â to Â be Â a Â chart Â for Â every Â person Â who Â made Â comments Â and Â what Â category Â [they] Â fell Â under, Â so Â itâ€™s Â an Â easy Â process Â for Â the Â planning Â board Â to Â ensure Â that Â every Â comment Â was Â documented,â€? Â George Â said. Â Even Â after Â identifying Â and Â categorizing Â the Â comments, Â Planning Â Board Â Chairman Â Mike Â Calimano Â said Â he Â thinks Â theyâ€™re Â at Â the Â â€œbeginning Â stagesâ€? Â of Â the Â process. Â â€œNow Â the Â challenge Â is Â to Â address Â and Â respond Â to Â them Â [the Â comments], Â which Â would Â be Â the Â FEIS,â€? Â Calimano Â said. Â Calimano Â said Â he Â was Â â€œuncomfortableâ€? Â with Â the Â idea Â of Â having Â the Â public Â review Â three Â separate Â documents Â â€” Â the Â Draft Â Environmental Â Impact Â Statement Â (DEIS), Â a Â synthe-Â sized Â comment Â section Â and Â a Â response Â document. Â He Â said Â he Â would Â like Â for Â the Â FEIS Â to Â stand Â alone Â and Â â€œtell Â the Â whole Â

Â The Â percentage Â of Â Â under-Â graduate Â Caucasian Â Â students Â and Â Latino Â students Â has Â gone Â up Â 3 Â percent.

Over Â the Â course Â of Â this Â semester, Â New Â Paltz Â Secrets, Â a Â Facebook Â page Â where Â anony-Â mous Â users Â can Â share Â secrets Â to Â be Â broadcasted Â to Â more Â than Â a Â thousand Â followers, Â has Â gained Â not Â only Â popularity Â among Â the Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â student Â population Â â€“ Â but Â ire Â from Â multiple Â clubs Â and Â organizations Â who Â have Â condemned Â the Â pageâ€™s Â more Â â€œoffensiveâ€? Â postings. Â A Â secret Â â€“ Â titled Â No.1017 Â â€“ Â posted Â on Â March Â 1 Â that Â recounted Â the Â alleged Â assault Â of Â a Â transgender Â woman Â has Â various Â groups Â and Â individuals Â on Â campus, Â including Â members Â of Â the Â Queer Â Action Â Coalition Â (QAC), Â express-Â ing Â their Â discontent Â and Â outrage Â with Â the Â â€“ Â now Â deleted Â â€“ Â secret Â and Â even Â the Â Facebook Â page Â itself. Â Following Â attention Â gained Â from Â No. Â 1017 Â and Â other Â previous Â secrets, Â the Â Student Â Associa-Â tion Â (SA) Â released Â a Â statement Â on Â their Â Face-Â book Â page Â on Â March Â 6 Â about Â the Â increased Â amount Â of Â social Â media Â outlets Â used Â to Â â€œspread Â rumors Â and Â slanderâ€? Â while Â â€œinciting Â harass-Â ment, Â fear Â and Â intimidationâ€? Â in Â fellow Â students Â through Â â€œdiscriminatory, Â racist, Â sexist, Â trans-Â phobic Â [and] Â homophobicâ€? Â language. SECRETS Â SPREAD Â Since Â its Â creation Â in Â December Â of Â 2012, Â New Â Paltz Â Secrets Â has Â quickly Â garnered Â the Â at-Â tention Â of Â the Â campus Â community. Â Â As Â of Â March Â 13, Â the Â page Â had Â 1,695 Â â€˜likes,â€™ Â surpassing Â the Â RIÂżFLDO Facebook Â page Â for Â The Â Town Â of Â New Â Paltz Â by Â almost Â 100 Â â€˜likes.â€™ Â In Â comparison, Â the Â New Â Paltz Â Student Â
Association Â currently Â has Â 217 Â â€˜likes,â€™ Â and Â the Â New Â Paltz Â Residence Â Hall Â Association Â has Â 689 Â friends Â as Â of Â press Â time. Â Â The Â founder Â of Â New Â Paltz Â Secrets, Â who Â wished Â to Â remain Â anonymous*, Â said Â the Â page Â was Â meant Â to Â â€œstrengthen Â the Â current Â commu-Â nityâ€? Â and Â create Â a Â â€œcomfortableâ€? Â environment Â where Â people Â can Â be Â themselves. Â Their Â mission Â seemed Â to Â catch Â on, Â as Â near-Â ly Â 2,000 Â secrets Â have Â been Â sifted Â through Â since Â its Â inception. Â With Â so Â many Â secrets Â and Â other Â messages Â being Â submitted, Â the Â page Â founder Â said Â moderation Â is Â needed. Â â€œIn Â all Â honesty, Â only Â 60 Â to Â 70 Â percent Â of Â all Â things Â sent Â in Â are Â put Â on Â the Â page Â and Â maybe Â even Â less Â than Â that,â€? Â the Â page Â founder Â said. Â â€œIf Â you Â break Â the Â disclaimer, Â if Â people Â are Â named Â in Â a Â negative Â light, Â if Â itâ€™s Â racist, Â sexist Â or Â a Â per-Â sonal Â attack Â on Â an Â individual, Â it Â canâ€™t Â be Â put Â up.â€? Secret Â No. Â 1017 Â was Â â€œoverlooked,â€? Â ac-Â cording Â to Â the Â page Â founder, Â and Â was Â removed Â from Â the Â webpage Â after Â they Â received Â a Â mes-Â sage Â from Â a Â student Â who Â wished Â for Â it Â to Â be Â taken Â down. Â Since Â secret Â No. Â 1017 Â was Â posted, Â the Â page Â founder Â said Â Facebook Â users Â have Â been Â â€œbad-Â geringâ€? Â them Â to Â release Â the Â name Â of Â the Â person Â who Â submitted Â the Â secret, Â but Â will Â not Â give Â out Â the Â name Â and Â â€œbrand Â them Â as Â a Â social Â pariah.â€? Â The Â page Â founder Â said Â if Â an Â actual Â crime Â was Â committed, Â they Â would Â release Â the Â name. Â â€œI Â think Â people Â are Â questioning Â my Â morals Â E\OHWWLQJWKDWRQHVOLSEXWLWÂśVGLIÂżFXOWÂ´WKH\ said. Â â€œI Â donâ€™t Â think Â Iâ€™m Â guilty Â for Â not Â releasing Â the Â name, Â but Â I Â am Â a Â little Â guilty Â of Â posting Â that. Â Even Â though Â I Â didnâ€™t Â say Â it, Â I Â helped Â spread Â it... and Â I Â feel Â bad. Â It Â was Â a Â mistake.â€?
REACTION Â TO Â NO.1017 Â Secret Â No. Â 1017, Â which Â detailed Â an Â al-Â leged Â sexual Â assault Â of Â a Â transgendered Â person, Â has Â members Â of Â both Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz Â student Â government Â and Â clubs Â and Â organizations Â on Â campus Â concerned. The Â original Â post, Â which Â has Â since Â been Â deleted, Â has Â even Â sparked Â follow-Âup Â discus-Â sions Â under Â different Â posts Â on Â the Â page Â as Â of Â March Â 12. Â Those Â condemning Â secret Â No. Â 1017 Â said Â while Â some Â argue Â that Â free Â speech Â should Â be Â al-Â lowed, Â the Â effects Â of Â that Â speech Â have Â far Â reach-Â ing Â consequences. Â Fourth-Âyear Â psychology Â major Â Shane Â Triano Â said Â many Â students Â donâ€™t Â understand Â that Â free Â speech Â doesnâ€™t Â mean Â you Â arenâ€™t Â held Â accountable Â for Â what Â you Â say Â â€” Â even Â on Â an Â anonymous Â page. â€œYou Â can Â say Â what Â you Â want Â without Â cen-Â sorship, Â but Â if Â you Â admit Â to Â a Â crime, Â youâ€™re Â going Â to Â be Â held Â accountable,â€? Â Triano Â said. Â â€œThatâ€™s Â not Â impeding Â on Â your Â free Â speech. Â Just Â because Â itâ€™s Â on Â Facebook Â doesnâ€™t Â mean Â itâ€™s Â less Â serious Â than Â if Â you Â said Â it Â to Â a Â studentâ€™s Â face.â€? =DFKDU\5RXVVHDVDVWXGHQWVHQDWRUÂżUVW noticed Â secret Â No. Â 1017 Â after Â it Â had Â been Â post-Â ed. Â Now, Â after Â various Â posts Â asking Â for Â more Â information Â on Â the Â matter, Â Rousseas Â said Â he Â wonders Â how Â New Â Paltz Â has Â the Â reputation Â of Â being Â â€œqueer-Âfriendlyâ€? Â when Â the Â campus Â lacks Â many Â of Â the Â resources Â that Â other Â SUNYs, Â in-Â cluding Â Albany Â and Â Purchase Â have Â for Â LGBTQ Â students, Â like Â support Â centers Â and Â entirely Â gen-Â der-Âneutral Â dorms. â€œWe Â donâ€™t Â have Â the Â resources, Â the Â adminis-Â tration Â doesnâ€™t Â try Â to Â give Â us Â the Â resources, Â and Â

Â Rous-Â seas Â said. Rousseasâ€™ Â sentiments Â were Â shared Â by Â other Â members Â of Â the Â campus Â community. Â Communication Â & Â Media Â Lecturer Â Daniel Â Hunt Â â€” Â who Â has Â made Â several Â documentaries Â about Â the Â transgender Â community Â â€” Â said Â the Â writerâ€™s Â â€œposture Â and Â entitlementâ€?

Billy Â Caracciolo, Â a Â fourth-Âyear Â Womenâ€™s, Â Gender Â and Â Sexuality Â and Â digital Â production Â double Â major, Â went Â a Â step Â further Â and Â said Â the Â post Â reveals Â the Â larger Â issue Â of Â transphobia Â on Â campus Â despite Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â reputation Â of Â being Â â€œan Â open Â place.â€? â€œPeople Â think Â that Â even Â though Â there Â are Â some Â individuals Â who Â are Â â€˜bad,â€™ Â New Â Paltz, Â as Â a Â whole, Â is Â a Â really Â good Â community,â€? Â Caracciolo Â said. Â â€œI Â think Â thatâ€™s Â not Â really Â the Â case, Â espe-Â cially Â for Â queer Â and Â trans Â people. Â Weâ€™ve Â been Â trying Â to Â have Â this Â discussion Â ever Â since Â I Â came Â to Â this Â school Â and Â no Â one Â seems Â to Â be Â taking Â it Â too Â seriously Â at Â all, Â so Â itâ€™s Â part Â of Â a Â bigger Â issue Â that Â New Â Paltz Â is Â not Â doing Â anything Â to Â make Â it Â a Â better, Â safer Â space.â€?

PARALLELS Â TO Â THE Â PAST Â Much Â like Â Caracciolo, Â some Â campus Â commu-Â nity Â members Â have Â questioned Â SUNY Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â accepting Â atmosphere Â after Â seeing Â posts Â on Â a Â page Â as Â popular Â as Â New Â Paltz Â Secrets. Â Karl Â Bryant, Â assistant Â professor Â of Â sociology Â and Â Womenâ€™s, Â Gender Â and Â Sexuality Â studies, Â said Â that Â New Â Paltzâ€™s Â progressive Â reputation Â only Â goes Â so Â far. â€œYou Â can Â be Â liberal Â and Â hold Â onto Â beliefs Â about Â groups Â of Â people Â that Â are Â stigmatizing Â and Â oppressive, Â like Â some Â of Â the Â racial Â incidents Â last Â year,â€? Â Bryant Â said. Â â€œThis Â incident Â is Â disturbing Â and Â disgusting, Â but Â not Â surprising. Â Theyâ€™re Â not Â anomalies. Â Theyâ€™re Â something Â that Â is Â here Â all Â the Â time, Â but Â isnâ€™t Â expressed Â â€” Â maybe, Â because Â of Â that Â reputation.â€? Sociology Â Professor Â Roberto Â VĂŠlez-ÂVĂŠlez Â also Â compared Â the Â posting Â to Â the Â â€œracial Â signageâ€? Â last Â year, Â because Â he Â said Â both Â incidents Â had Â target Â audiences, Â albeit Â different Â ones. Â VĂŠlez-ÂVĂŠlez Â said Â most Â of Â his Â students Â hadnâ€™t Â directly Â read Â the Â post, Â but Â had Â heard Â about Â it Â from Â other Â people. â€œUnlike Â the Â signing Â in Â Humanities Â and Â the Â dorm Â [Lefevre Â Hall], Â which Â had Â the Â intention Â that Â people Â are Â going Â to Â see Â it, Â including Â faculty Â and Â staff Â â€” Â not Â just Â the Â student Â who Â is Â active Â online Â â€” Â the Â students Â who Â are Â going Â to Â see Â this Â [post] Â are Â going Â to Â be Â carefully Â looking Â at Â their Â newsfeed, Â and Â the Â people Â who Â are Â interested Â in Â campus Â gos-Â sip,â€? Â VĂŠlez-ÂVĂŠlez Â said. Â VĂŠlez-ÂVĂŠlez Â said Â the Â page Â ownerâ€™s Â anonym-Â ity Â allowed Â them Â to Â take Â a Â position Â of Â neutrality, Â so Â they Â can Â post Â these Â â€œsecretsâ€? Â without Â condemning Â or Â condoning Â them. Â By Â doing Â so, Â they Â escape Â re-Â VSRQVLELOLW\VHUYLQJDVDÂłYHVVHOÂ´DQGQRWDÂżOWHU VĂŠlez-ÂVĂŠlez Â said. Â However, Â Triano Â said Â even Â as Â an Â anonymous Â post, Â the Â actions Â of Â the Â original Â poster Â and Â the Â page Â
PRGHUDWRUUHĂ€HFWDÂłJHQHUDOVHQWLPHQWÂ´RIWKHVWX dent Â population Â toward Â the Â trans Â community. â€œSomebody Â thought Â that Â â€˜people Â will Â get... my Â point Â of Â view Â on Â this, Â think Â itâ€™s Â funny Â and Â a Â story Â worth Â tellingâ€™ Â â€” Â not Â with Â the Â intention Â that Â people Â would Â be Â disgusted,â€? Â Triano Â said. Â â€œThat Â is Â UHĂ€HFWHGLQWKHUHVSRQVHWRR7KHSHUVRQZKRUXQV the Â page...put Â it Â up Â as Â opposed Â to Â being Â completely Â disgusted.â€? Bryant Â said Â these Â â€œnegative Â attitudesâ€? Â are Â just Â RQHSLHFHRIWKHÂłGLIÂżFXOWDQGGDQJHURXVÂ´UHDOLW\ that Â transgender Â students Â and Â individuals Â face Â ev-Â ery Â day. â€œWhether Â or Â not Â it Â happened, Â it Â taps Â into Â something Â that Â is Â very Â real,â€? Â he Â said. Â â€œThese Â are Â true Â realities Â for Â trans Â peopleâ€™s Â lives Â and Â thatâ€™s Â the Â important Â thing. Â There Â are Â all Â kinds Â of Â ways Â that Â WUDQV SHRSOHÂśV OLYHV RQ FDPSXV DUH VLJQLÂżFDQWO\ different Â than Â other Â people, Â on Â a Â basic Â level, Â that Â people Â take Â for Â granted.â€? These Â public Â platforms Â â€” Â Facebook, Â Tum-Â blr, Â Twitter Â â€” Â have Â become Â a Â way Â for Â people Â to Â disclose Â and Â share Â intimate, Â and Â sometimes Â taboo, Â positions, Â according Â to Â VĂŠlez-ÂVĂŠlez. Â He Â said Â that Â people Â are Â expressing Â their Â feelings Â and Â opinions Â with Â less Â self-Ârestraint. â€œPeople Â are Â losing Â the Â bearings Â of Â limits Â in Â expression Â â€” Â they Â donâ€™t Â think Â of Â social Â conse-Â quences,â€? Â VĂŠlez-ÂVlez Â said. Â â€œThey Â donâ€™t Â think Â itâ€™s Â actually Â out Â there Â when Â itâ€™s Â out Â there, Â but Â racism Â is Â racism Â whether Â itâ€™s Â public Â or Â private, Â as Â well Â as Â sexism, Â homophobia, Â etc.â€?

Â to Â various Â factions Â of Â the Â student Â population. Â In Â response Â to Â the Â various Â outcries, Â the Â SA Â

Each week, one of the members of our Copy Desk will share their culinary chops with you. Bon appetit! Between Â classes, Â work, Â my Â internship Â and Â occasional Â sleep, Â I Â havenâ€™t Â had Â much Â time Â to Â put Â my Â culinary Â expertise Â â€” Â what-Â ever Â exists Â of Â that Â â€” Â to Â the Â test. Mostly Â the Â options Â are: Â take-Âout, Â eggs Â or Â a Â microwaveable Â dish. Â But, Â there Â is Â always Â a Â silver Â lining Â to Â this Â poor Â college Â kidâ€™s Â story: Â having Â a Â boyfriend Â who Â can Â cook. Â Hereâ€™s Â what Â you Â need: A Â boyfriend/girlfriend Â with Â extraordinary Â culinary Â skills, Â a Â car Â to Â drive Â to Â get Â the Â food Â DQG WKH GHGLFDWHG VLJQLÂżFDQW RWKHU WR GULYH the Â food Â to Â you. Â (Yes, Â I Â am Â spoiled.) Â Now, Â the Â meals Â will Â vary Â depending Â on Â what Â your Â love Â likes Â to Â make. Â My Â favorite Â dish Â my Â boyfriend Â makes Â is Â Cajun Â shrimp Â and Â tilapia Â with Â brown Â rice, Â peppers, Â mac Â and Â cheese Â and Â biscuits. Â If Â you Â want Â to Â get Â adventurous Â and Â try Â making Â this Â \RXUVHOI\RXFDQEX\WKHÂżVKDQGIU\LWLQD pan, Â but Â aside Â from Â that, Â I Â canâ€™t Â tell Â you Â much Â else. Â You Â will Â have Â to Â ask Â Daren, Â but Â I Â doubt Â he Â will Â give Â away Â the Â secrets Â to Â his Â savory Â Cajun Â sauce. While Â the Â boyfriend/girlfriend Â cooks, Â you Â can Â do Â one Â of Â two Â things: Â watch Â â€œFamily Â Guyâ€? Â and Â leave Â the Â cooking Â to Â the Â expert, Â or Â you Â can Â get Â involved. Â Dangerous Â as Â this Â may Â be, Â it Â is Â a Â learning Â experience Â â€” Â even Â if Â you Â just Â cut Â a Â few Â peppers. Â Or Â one. Â As Â the Â food Â sizzles Â in Â the Â pan, Â enjoy Â the Â amazing Â smell Â and Â savor Â the Â lack Â of Â burnt Â scent Â you Â usually Â smell Â when Â you Â attempt Â to Â cook. When Â the Â food Â is Â all Â done, Â grab Â yourself Â a Â serving Â and Â eat Â it Â quickly Â because Â you Â prob-Â ably Â havenâ€™t Â had Â a Â real Â meal Â since Â the Â last Â big Â holiday Â you Â were Â home Â for.

The Next Generation Of Gaming
SONY ANNOUNCES NEXT PLAYSTATION HOME CONSOLE By Â Matt Â Tursi Copy Â Editor Â |1#KDZNPDLOQHZSDOW]HGX
On Â Wednesday, Â Feb. Â 20, Â Sony Â held Â a Â PlayStation Â event Â in Â New Â York Â City, Â which Â served Â as Â an Â announcement Â for Â the Â com-Â panyâ€™s Â long-Ârumored Â next Â generation Â home Â console. 2IÂżFLDOO\DQGPRVWFUHDWLYHO\WLWOHGWKH3OD\6WDWLRQZLOO be Â released Â during Â the Â 2013 Â holiday Â season. Â Even Â though Â the Â system Â was Â not Â being Â shown, Â Sony Â re-Â vealed Â the Â new Â controller, Â detailed Â the Â consoleâ€™s Â internal Â specs Â and Â showed Â video Â and Â live Â demos Â of Â a Â few Â freshly-Âannounced Â games. 7KHQHZ'XDO6KRFNFRQWUROOHULVUHPLQLVFHQWRIWKH'X-Â alShock Â 3 Â of Â yesteryear Â with Â a Â few Â new Â additions. Â The Â biggest Â of Â which Â is Â a Â capacitive Â touch Â pad Â that Â will Â replace Â the Â start Â and Â select Â buttons Â on Â the Â top Â part Â of Â the Â controllerâ€™s Â front Â side Â â€” Â the Â VSHFLÂżFXVHRIZKLFKZDVQRWSDUWLFXODUO\FRYHUHG7KHDQDORJ sticks Â have Â been Â redesigned, Â the Â D-Âpad Â is Â slightly Â larger Â and Â al-Â tered Â L2 Â and Â R2 Â triggers Â are Â more Â akin Â to Â the Â Xbox Â 360 Â and Â Wii Â Uâ€™s Â pro Â controllers. Rounding Â out Â the Â new Â features Â are Â a Â â€œLight Â Barâ€? Â to Â differ-Â entiate Â playersâ€™ Â Dualshocks, Â a Â headphone Â jack Â and Â a Â share Â button Â that Â will Â allow Â users Â to Â easily Â upload Â videos Â of Â play Â sessions.
Without Â getting Â too Â technical, Â the Â hardware Â breaks Â down Â DVVXFKDFXVWRPFRUH$0'Âł-DJXDUÂ´[ZLWKLQWHJUDWHG graphics Â APU Â and Â â€œnext-Âgenerationâ€? Â AMD Â Radeon Â graphics Â pro-Â FHVVRUERDVWLQJFDSDELOLWLHVWRSURGXFHWHUDĂ€RSV7KHV\VWHP will Â also Â pack Â 8 Â GB Â of Â dedicated Â GDDR5 Â memory Â (RAM). Â Basi-Â cally, Â this Â machine Â will Â be Â a Â beast Â when Â it Â comes Â to Â graphics, Â as Â was Â shown Â from Â some Â early Â gameplay. 3OD\6WDWLRQZLOOLQFOXGHDORFDOKDUGGULYHDOWKRXJKFD-Â pacity Â was Â not Â mentioned Â yet, Â nor Â were Â multiple Â SKUs, Â as Â seen Â with Â most Â console Â launches Â since Â the Â Xbox Â 360 Â in Â 2005. Â Sonyâ€™s Â handheld Â console, Â the Â PS Â Vita, Â will Â also Â serve Â functionality Â with Â some Â games Â offering Â the Â option Â to Â be Â played Â on Â the Â smaller Â screen, Â similar Â to Â the Â Wii Â Uâ€™s Â tablet Â controller. Backward Â compatibility Â with Â prior Â consoles, Â as Â of Â right Â now, Â will Â be Â unavailable, Â but Â media Â streaming Â from Â apps Â such Â as Â Net-Â Ă€L[, Â Hulu Â Plus, Â Crackle Â and Â Amazon Â Instant Â will Â be. Â Sonyâ€™s Â paid Â online Â service, Â 3OD\6WDWLRQ3OXV, Â will Â continue Â as Â well. Â After Â the Â press Â conference, Â Sony Â Computer Â Entertainment Â America Â Presi-Â GHQWDQG&(2-DFN7UHWWRQFODULÂżHGWKDWQRUPDOUHWDLOUHOHDVHG games Â will Â remain Â at Â the Â price Â point Â of Â $60. So Â after Â all Â this Â blabbering Â similar Â to Â the Â press Â conference, Â here Â comes Â what Â should Â be Â cared Â about Â â€” Â the Â games. Â
Shown Â or Â announced Â on Â stage Â were Â entries Â in Â the Â â€œKill-Â zone,â€? Â â€œInfamousâ€? Â and Â â€œFinal Â Fantasyâ€? Â series, Â along Â with Â â€œHaloâ€? Â developer Â Bungieâ€™s Â new Â shooter, Â â€œDestinyâ€? Â and Â a Â new Â racing Â IP Â called Â â€œDriveClub,â€? Â among Â others. Â â€œWatch Â Dogs,â€? Â from Â Ubisoft Â Montreal, Â and Â â€œDiablo Â III,â€? Â developed Â by Â Blizzard Â Entertain-Â ment, Â were Â revealed Â for Â the Â new Â system, Â with Â PS3 Â versions Â in Â the Â pipeline, Â too. The Â games Â all Â looked Â fantastic Â from Â a Â graphics Â standpoint Â with Â excellent Â detail Â on Â character Â models Â and Â environments, Â complemented Â by Â some Â truly Â astounding Â lighting Â and Â particle Â HIIHFWV OLNH WKH ÂżUH GXULQJ WKH Âł.LOO]RQH 6KDGRZ )DOOÂ´ GHPR Although Â the Â games Â look Â great, Â the Â jump Â in Â quality Â isnâ€™t Â quite Â as Â jolting Â as Â it Â was Â going Â from Â the Â PS2 Â to Â PS3. Overall, Â it Â was Â a Â good Â press Â conference, Â minus Â some Â creepy Â and/or Â awkward Â presenters, Â and Â the Â occasional Â video Â of Â certain Â â€œbig Â namesâ€? Â of Â the Â industry Â professing Â their Â â€œloveâ€? Â for Â Sony Â and Â explaining Â why Â their Â console Â is Â so Â great. Â Sony Â did Â exactly Â what Â ZDVH[SHFWHGDQGRXWVLGHRIVKRZLQJWKH36LWVHOIJDYHDJRRG representation Â of Â what Â to Â look Â forward Â to Â this Â fall. Â More Â about Â the Â console, Â including Â what Â it Â actually Â looks Â like, Â will Â undoubtedly Â be Â revealed Â this Â June Â during Â Sonyâ€™s Â press Â conference Â at Â the Â big-Â gest Â gaming Â event Â of Â the Â year, Â E3.

A Love Affair With â€˜Someone Newâ€™ UP-AND-COMING FOLK ARTIST RELEASES STUNNING EP By Â Carolyn Â Quimby A&E Â Editor Â | Â Carolyn.email@example.com
Zan Strumfeld Someone New
Listening Â to Â Zan Â Strumfeldâ€™s Â music Â always Â feels Â like Â Sunday Â morn-Â ing Â â€” Â comforting, Â familiar Â and Â full Â of Â possibility. Â With Â her Â signature Â folk-Ây Â sound Â and Â image-Âheavy Â lyrics, Â Strumfeldâ€™s Â newest Â release Â care-Â fully Â and Â beautifully Â explores Â the Â limits Â of Â lost Â love. Â Released Â March Â 9, Â Strumfeldâ€™s Â EP Â Someone Â New Â is Â a Â seven-Âsong Â meditation Â on Â heartbreak. Â However, Â unlike Â other Â â€œbreakupâ€? Â albums, Â these Â arenâ€™t Â songs Â of Â malice Â or Â revenge. Â Strumfeld Â makes Â herself Â partial-Â ly Â culpable Â in Â her Â own Â heartbreak, Â which Â is Â both Â mature Â and Â refreshing Â . However, Â before Â this Â review Â goes Â any Â further, Â there Â needs Â to Â be Â a Â disclaimer Â that Â Strumfeld Â is Â a Â friend. Â Now Â that Â thatâ€™s Â out Â of Â the Â way, Â I Â can Â get Â back Â to Â the Â music. Â The Â albumâ€™s Â fourth Â track, Â â€œFridayâ€™s Â Fire,â€? Â may Â be Â one Â of Â my Â favor-Â LWH6WUXPIHOGVRQJVHYHU:LWKKHUÂżQJHUSOXFNLQJWKLVVRQJKLJKOLJKWV her Â guitar Â playing Â as Â much Â as Â her Â songwriting. Â The Â chords Â reverberate Â and Â resonate, Â which Â gives Â the Â song Â a Â strength Â that Â Iâ€™d Â love Â to Â hear Â in Â more Â of Â Strumfeldâ€™s Â music. At Â one Â point, Â Strumfeld Â sings Â â€œI Â only Â get Â like Â this Â when Â itâ€™s Â snow-Â ingâ€? Â and Â â€œluckily, Â for Â me, Â itâ€™s Â snowing.â€? Â But Â I Â think Â itâ€™s Â safe Â to Â say Â that Â weâ€™re Â lucky Â it Â was Â snowing, Â because Â this Â song Â serves Â as Â the Â backbone Â of Â the Â EP. Â Less Â than Â two Â minutes Â long, Â â€œI Â Donâ€™t Â Want Â To Â Be Â Niceâ€? Â is Â a Â beau-Â tiful Â little Â glimpse Â into Â Strumfeldâ€™s Â mind. Â With Â its Â slow, Â meandering Â tempo Â and Â layered Â harmonies, Â itâ€™s Â like Â being Â wrapped Â up Â inside Â her Â most Â intimate Â thoughts. Â The Â song Â reminds Â me Â of Â that Â loop Â of Â thoughts Â that Â plays Â inside Â your Â head;Íž Â the Â thoughts Â you Â wonâ€™t Â reveal Â to Â anyone;Íž Â the Â thoughts Â that Â are Â always Â about Â the Â person Â they Â shouldnâ€™t Â be Â about. As Â the Â song Â comes Â to Â an Â end, Â Strumfeld Â repeats Â â€œI Â donâ€™t Â want Â to Â be Â QLFHÂ´DQGÂżQLVKHVZLWKÂł,ZDQW\RXÂ´7KHVLPSOLFLW\RIWKHZRUGVMX[WD
posed Â with Â the Â weight Â of Â their Â meaning Â is Â gut-Âwrenching Â in Â the Â best Â way. Â This Â song Â is Â a Â microcosm Â of Â the Â album Â on Â the Â whole, Â which Â speaks Â with Â an Â honesty Â and Â earnestness Â I Â havenâ€™t Â encountered Â in Â a Â while. Â â€œCarry Â Onâ€? Â serves Â as Â a Â welcomed Â levity Â in Â its Â quicker Â tempo Â and Â reassuring Â lyrics. Â The Â song Â opens Â with Â â€œI Â was Â born Â drowning Â in Â my Â lungs Â then Â I Â learned Â how Â to Â swim, Â and Â tread Â on,â€? Â which Â becomes Â the Â main Â theme Â of Â the Â song Â â€” Â struggling Â through Â the Â darkness Â to Â come Â out Â on Â the Â other Â side. She Â sings Â with Â the Â authority, Â but Â not Â condescension, Â of Â someone Â whoâ€™s Â experienced Â heartbreak Â and Â knows Â how Â to Â overcome Â it. Â This Â song, Â like Â the Â rest Â of Â the Â album, Â reveals Â how Â Strumfeld Â has Â mended Â her Â own Â heart Â through Â melody. To Â reference Â all Â of Â the Â poetic Â lyrics Â would Â require Â a Â whole Â other Â re-Â YLHZVR,ÂśOOMXVWSRLQWRXWWKHRQHWKDWDOZD\VJLYHVPHFKLOOV,QÂł*KRVWV Pt. Â III,â€? Â Strumfeld Â sings, Â â€œSo Â push Â away, Â donâ€™t Â feel Â my Â bones/they Â are Â too Â cold Â to Â have Â a Â home.â€? :KHQHYHU,KHDUWKDWOLQH,DPVLPXOWDQHRXVO\MHDORXVDQGDZH struck, Â because Â I Â wish Â I Â had Â written Â something Â so Â perfect. Â Weâ€™ve Â all Â felt Â the Â winter Â that Â spreads Â inside Â us Â when Â we Â realize Â how Â weâ€™re Â not Â at Â home Â in Â our Â own Â bodies Â â€” Â let Â alone Â in Â the Â arms Â of Â someone Â else, Â and Â Strum-Â feld Â captures Â that Â universal Â feeling Â with Â incredible Â precision. On Â March Â 11, Â Independent Â Music Â News, Â a Â UK-Âbased Â website, Â listed Â Strumfeld Â as Â one Â of Â their Â â€œTop Â Fifty Â Independent/Unsigned Â Folk Â Acts,â€? Â and Â I Â have Â no Â doubt Â this Â wonâ€™t Â be Â the Â last Â time Â sheâ€™s Â featured Â on Â a Â â€œTopâ€? Â list. Â With Â less Â than Â two Â years Â on Â the Â scene, Â Strumfeld Â has Â made Â a Â name Â for Â herself Â in Â the Â states Â and Â across Â the Â pond, Â as Â they Â say. Someone Â New Â is Â a Â marked Â shift Â from Â her Â earlier Â EPs Â Patterns Â (2012) Â and Â A Â Brief Â Love Â Affair Â (2012), Â which Â is Â a Â little Â more Â folk-Ây Â and Â rough Â around Â the Â edges. Â Someone Â New Â is Â more Â polished Â and Â mature Â â€” Â both Â in Â sound Â and Â its Â message. Honestly, Â Iâ€™m Â waiting Â breathlessly Â for Â her Â inevitable Â full-Âlength Â studio Â album. Â In Â a Â world Â drowning Â in Â auto-Âtuned, Â lyrically-Âinept Â drivel, Â Strumfeld Â has Â carved Â herself Â a Â beautiful Â little Â niche Â of Â music Â perfect Â for Â 6XQGD\ PRUQLQJV URDG WULSV DQG MXVW DERXW HYHU\ RWKHU RFFDVLRQ \RX can Â think Â of. *Zan Â Strumfeld Â was Â formerly Â an Â Arts Â & Â Entertainment Â Editor Â at Â The Â New Â Paltz Â Oracle.

“In most cases I shoot for images that present the reality of what is in front of the lens while still illustrating a mental/ emotional space. I’ve been particularly drawn to work with themes of transition and movement, and still photography has helped me to push that toward the idea of transition and movement as a permanent state.”

New Â Paltz Â Secrets, Â a Â currently Â trendy Â Facebook Â page Â where Â New Â Paltz Â students Â anonymously Â post Â â€œsecretsâ€? Â to Â the Â greater Â â€œcommunity,â€? Â has Â sparked Â outcry Â from Â various Â parts Â of Â our Â cam-Â pus. While Â the Â page Â might Â have Â had Â some Â value Â to Â our Â college Â community Â at Â one Â point, Â it Â has Â since Â been Â diminished Â by Â a Â deluge Â of Â comments, Â posts Â and Â general Â unrest Â that Â has Â us Â at Â The Â New Â Paltz Â Oracle Â troubled. Â This Â page Â was Â alledgedly Â meant Â to Â form Â a Â community, Â but Â it Â has Â failed Â to Â do Â so. Â It Â has Â created Â a Â cesspool Â of Â comments Â that Â could Â not Â even Â remotely Â be Â called Â a Â â€œcommunity.â€? Â Not Â every Â post Â that Â makes Â it Â to Â the Â front Â page Â of Â New Â Paltz Â Secrets Â is Â offensive Â â€“ Â in Â fact, Â a Â large Â majority Â of Â them Â amount Â to Â nothing Â more Â than Â trivial Â drunken Â tales Â that Â have Â little Â to Â no Â value Â EHLQJVKDUHGLQWKHÂżUVWSODFH+RZHYHUWKDWGRHVQRWKLGHWKHIDFW that Â many Â posts Â on Â the Â page Â have Â been Â incredibly Â demeaning Â to Â an Â almost Â incalculable Â number Â of Â people Â who Â live Â and Â work Â on Â this Â campus. Â But Â besides Â the Â blatant Â misogyny, Â racism, Â transphobia Â and Â unsettlingly Â voueryistic Â trends Â it Â showcases, Â New Â Paltz Â Secrets Â is Â a Â perfect Â example Â of Â a Â dirty Â little Â secret Â our Â campus Â has Â â€” Â we Â are Â not Â who Â we Â say Â we Â are.

ÂľOLNHVÂśRQFacebook Â than Â The Â Student Â Association, Â WFNP Â and Â The Â Oracle Â combined. Â Let Â that Â sink Â in. Â SUNY Â New Â Paltz, Â a Â campus Â with Â rising Â academic Â standards Â known Â for Â its Â progressive Â environment, Â has Â multiple Â organizations Â aimed Â at Â informing Â and Â discussing Â topics Â of Â importance Â and Â rel-Â evance Â within Â the Â campus Â community Â -Â Â and Â each Â of Â these Â has Â less Â interaction Â with Â the Â student Â body Â on Â the Â internet Â than Â a Â page Â of Â narcissistic Â gossip Â and Â vitriol. Â Many Â on Â our Â campus Â make Â strides Â toward Â accomplishing Â so-Â cial Â change. Â We Â have Â groups Â of Â incredibly Â passionate Â and Â power-Â ful Â student Â leaders Â all Â with Â the Â hopes Â of Â achieving Â the Â climate Â of Â FKDQJHDQGDFFHSWDQFHRXUVWXGHQWERG\ORYHVWRĂ€DXQW But Â to Â truly Â accomplish Â these Â changes, Â our Â student Â population Â needs Â to Â be Â educated, Â informed Â and Â willing Â to Â take Â the Â necessary Â actions Â against Â the Â casual Â hatred Â and Â status Â quo Â bigotry Â that Â often Â slip Â by Â unchecked. Â We Â have Â to Â be Â vigilant Â representatives Â of Â the Â world Â we Â want Â to Â see Â and Â keep Â the Â hateful Â words Â out Â of Â our Â com-Â munity. Â Despite Â all Â of Â the Â work Â of Â various Â organizations Â at Â New Â Paltz Â that Â strive Â for Â these Â ideals, Â based Â on Â mere Â online Â interaction, Â New Â Paltz Â Secrets Â serves Â as Â a Â disheartening Â pulse Â on Â what Â our Â campus Â FRPPXQLW\EHOLHYHVÂąDQGLWÂśVQRWDKDSS\SLFWXUH In Â 2011 Â when Â our Â campus Â was Â shocked Â as Â hateful Â racist Â mes-Â sages Â were Â posted Â on Â campus, Â the Â dramatic Â example Â shook Â our Â FDPSXV WR WDNH DFWLRQ ZLWK D Ă€XUU\ RI GLVFXVVLRQV DQG IRUXPV aimed Â at Â shifting Â the Â focus Â from Â what Â happened Â to Â how Â we Â can Â use Â it Â as Â a Â learning Â tool Â moving Â forward.

Pardon Â my Â language, Â but Â what Â the Â fuck Â is Â â€œSpring Â Breakers?â€? A Â short Â while Â ago, Â John Â Tappen Â showed Â me Â the Â trailer Â for Â this Â positively Â horrendous Â looking Â movie Â starring Â Selena Â Gomez, Â Van-Â essa Â Hudgens Â and Â James Â Franco. Â From Â what Â I Â saw, Â the Â entire Â movie Â is Â just Â skinny, Â heter-Â onormative Â girls Â running Â around Â in Â skimpy Â bikinis Â and Â Franco Â mumbling Â through Â his Â bedazzled Â grill, Â â€œSpring Â Break Â foâ€™ever.â€?

Seeing Â as Â I Â have Â no Â idea Â what Â to Â write Â about, Â Iâ€™m Â going Â to Â whine Â and Â cry Â about Â the Â fact Â that Â my Â future Â is Â a Â com-Â plete Â mystery Â to Â me. Â In Â 66 Â days Â I Â will Â be Â graduating Â and Â moving Â back Â home. Â This Â time Â I Â wonâ€™t Â be Â hanging Â out Â with Â friends Â and Â laying Â on Â my Â couch Â counting Â down Â the Â days Â until Â I Â go Â back Â to Â school Â ( Â I Â def-Â initely Â will Â be Â laying Â on Â my Â couch Â for Â an Â extended Â period Â of Â time Â when Â I Â donâ€™t Â get Â a Â job Â for Â a Â few Â years Â though). Â Iâ€™ve Â always Â been Â amazed Â when Â peo-Â ple Â tell Â me Â they Â knew Â what Â they Â want-Â ed Â to Â do Â since Â elementary Â school. Â My Â friends Â have Â wanted Â to Â become Â teach-Â ers, Â doctors Â and Â physical Â therapists Â ever Â since Â they Â can Â remember Â and Â have Â ac-Â tually Â followed Â through Â on Â those Â ideas. Â Why Â couldnâ€™t Â I Â have Â been Â blessed Â with Â the Â â€˜I-Âknow-Âexactly-Âwhat-ÂI-Âwant-Âto-Âdoâ€™ Â gene? Â Â Becoming Â a Â teacher Â sounded Â like Â a Â great Â profession Â until Â I Â realized Â it Â was Â the Â only Â one Â I Â knew Â existed Â until Â high Â school. Â A Â marine Â biologist Â sounded Â pretty Â cool, Â especially Â because Â I Â love Â dolphins Â (and Â secretly Â because Â Aaron Â Carter Â said Â it Â was Â his Â dream Â job Â in Â an Â
interview Â I Â read Â when Â I Â was Â 11). Â Sci-Â ence Â was Â never Â my Â best Â subject Â though Â and Â unless Â I Â got Â to Â pet Â and Â play Â with Â dol-Â SKLQVDOOGD\,GRQÂśWWKLQN,ÂśGÂżQGLWWKDW enjoyable Â (dolphin Â girl Â alert). Â Iâ€™ve Â always Â been Â interested Â in Â jour-Â nalism Â and Â I Â remember Â having Â a Â snow Â day Â in Â middle Â school Â where Â my Â dad Â brought Â a Â video Â camera Â outside Â while Â I Â reported Â on Â the Â weather. Â I Â probably Â shouldnâ€™t Â be Â admitting Â this Â but Â weâ€™ve Â all Â done Â it, Â right? I Â think Â the Â biggest Â problem Â I Â have Â is Â committing Â to Â one Â thing. Â What Â if Â I Â be-Â come Â a Â teacher Â and Â end Â up Â hating Â kids? Â What Â if Â I Â go Â into Â public Â relations Â and Â get Â sick Â of Â it? Â When Â Iâ€™m Â passionate Â about Â some-Â thing Â (like Â The Â Oracle) Â I Â have Â no Â prob-Â lem Â staying Â up Â until Â at Â least Â four Â in Â the Â morning Â to Â put Â out Â a Â paper Â Iâ€™m Â proud Â of. Â Now Â that Â I Â think Â about Â it, Â I Â was Â a Â OLWWOH WHUULÂżHG WR MRLQ The Â Oracle. Â It Â seemed Â like Â such Â a Â big Â commitment Â and Â I Â didnâ€™t Â think Â I Â was Â good Â enough. Â But Â in Â high Â school, Â I Â told Â myself Â I Â would Â join Â my Â college Â newspaper Â since Â I Â loved Â writing Â for Â The Â Horizon Â (my Â high Â
schoolâ€™s Â paper, Â what Â up Â Lynbroook). Â So Â after Â thinking Â about Â it Â for Â a Â few Â years Â SDWKHWLF , NQRZ , ÂżQDOO\ MRLQHG DQG Iâ€™m Â glad Â I Â did. Â Â ,WÂśV GHÂżQLWHO\ DV WLPH FRQVXPLQJ as Â I Â thought Â it Â would Â be, Â but Â following Â through Â on Â something Â and Â actually Â en-Â joying Â it Â gives Â me Â some Â hope Â that Â my Â next Â job Â wonâ€™t Â involve Â me Â crying Â into Â my Â pillow Â and Â hating Â my Â life. 2EYLRXVO\ LQ RUGHU WR ÂżQG WKDW MRE I Â need Â to Â put Â on Â my Â big Â girl Â pants Â and Â apply Â to Â places Â that Â Iâ€™m Â interested Â in Â without Â taking Â a Â few Â years Â to Â analyze Â whether Â Iâ€™d Â love Â it Â or Â would Â be Â good Â enough. Â I Â did Â that Â once Â and Â it Â paid Â off, Â so Â thereâ€™s Â a Â Â chance Â itâ€™ll Â work Â again? Â May-Â be? *Sorry Â that Â this Â turned Â into Â a Â mini Â self-Âtherapy Â session Â but Â no Â one Â reads Â this Â thing Â anyway, Â right?

Ciccarello Steps Up To The Plate
Softball Head Coach Tony Ciccarello has high hopes for the team this season. PHOTO BY ROBIN WEINSTEIN

The SUNY New Paltz Softball team will be under new leadership this year. After Denise Marchese left for an assiting coaching job at University of Rhode island, New Paltz welcome Tony Ciccarello, who has spent the last 11 seasons in the same role for SUNY Geneseo. Despite being named coach mid- year, Ciccarello said he is familiar with his new players from his time coaching at Geneseo and has expectations that his team will not only improve, but will also make the SUNYAC Tournament. “I told them right away, our expec- tations are to play better than they’ve played in the past and to reach the SU- NYAC Tournament,” Ciccarello said. “I coached against them, so I know they have talent.” 6HFRQG\HDURXW¿HOGHU0DULVVD0R
naco is enjoying how both Ciccarello and the players are listening to each other, she said. His openness toward incorporating players’ ideas, especially as a new coach, fosters a relationship in which the players also listen to his sug- gestions and adjust their ways as well, she said. “He has been around the game for a long time and knows what he is doing,” Monaco said. “He is professional and a great listener. If we have suggestions he is always willing to listen and if he agrees he will make changes.” One area that Ciccarello wants his team to improve on is playing under pressure, he said. “I put them under pressure at prac- tice a lot. I think that’s something that they need more of, so that once we get into the game and they’re playing under pressure, it’s a been there, done that type of thing,” Ciccarello said. “We’ll work
on skills, of course, but we’re going to put them in live situations.” 7KLUG\HDU ¿UVW EDVHPDQ &KHOVHD Kull realizes how important it is for the team to be comfortable when tough situ- ations arise, she said. “If we continue to be put under these pressure situations, we will become used to them and start to thrive under pressure not being phased by them dur- ing a real game,” Kull said. “This will help us win more games in the future.” Ciccarello views Kull, Monaco and fourth-year Melissa Liotta as players that will lead the Hawks’ offense this season, he said. “Chelsea Kull could become quite the power hitter. Marissa Monaco, her too,” Ciccarello said. “I see them hitting right in the middle of the order. Our one senior, Melissa Liotta, she’s not really a power hitter, but she’s a great contact KLWWHU:H FRXOG SXW KHU ¿UVW DQG VKH¶G

do great or we can put her in the middle and she’d do great because she has great technique.” While he knows who will be lead- ing his offense this season, Ciccarello has yet to see anyone emerge as the ace of the pitching staff, he said. “It’s going to be pitch by committee for a while,” Ciccarello said. “They’re all going to get their opportunity to step up to be that leader.” The Hawks’ season opening dou- bleheader against Farmingdale State College on Saturday, March 9 was can- celled, so they will open up in a double- header at the College of Staten Island on Saturday, March 16.

On Â March Â 1, Â The Â Ottawa Â Sun Â reported Â that Â Rangers Â GM Â Glen Â Sather Â has Â been Â mak-Â ing Â calls Â around Â the Â league Â to Â see Â how Â valu-Â able Â Marian Â Gaborik Â is Â on Â the Â trade Â market. Bruce Â Garrioch Â of Â The Â Sun Â said Â Sather Â is Â displeased Â with Â the Â lack Â of Â consistency Â LQKLVFOXEDQGWKDWIURQWRIÂżFHZRUNHUVDUH looking Â for Â anything Â that Â will Â shake Â up Â the Â roster. Â Gaborikâ€™s Â skill Â and Â solo Â year Â left Â on Â his Â contract Â with Â the Â Blueshirts Â is Â making Â him Â the Â likely Â target Â of Â a Â midseason Â trade. Iâ€™m Â hoping Â this Â is Â a Â rumor Â and Â nothing Â more. Â Trading Â Gaborik Â would Â be Â a Â horrible, Â horrible Â move Â on Â the Â part Â of Â the Â Rangers. Â It Â would Â be Â a Â return Â to Â the Â narrow-Âsighted, Â unconscientious Â Sather Â who Â has Â been Â lam-Â basted Â in Â the Â past. Â As Â of Â right Â now, Â Gaborik Â is Â still Â a Â necessity Â for Â this Â team. For Â years, Â the Â Rangers Â have Â needed Â elite Â scoring Â talent Â on Â the Â roster. Â With Â Hen-Â rik Â Lundqvist Â in Â net Â and Â a Â young Â but Â ca-Â pable Â blueline Â in Â front Â of Â him, Â the Â teamâ€™s Â defense Â hasnâ€™t Â been Â the Â issue. Â In Â contrast, Â
The Â New Â Paltz Â Oracle
No Â Goodbye Â For Â Gaborik the Â goal Â scoring Â has Â always Â been Â a Â problem. Â There Â was Â a Â tremendous Â generation Â gap Â be-Â WZHHQWKHRIIHQVLYHSOD\HUVÂżQLVKLQJDSOD\ seemed Â to Â be Â more Â privy Â to Â luck Â rather Â than Â talent Â and, Â of Â course, Â the Â power Â play Â was Â a Â nightmare. Gaborik Â is Â not Â the Â forward Â John Â Tor-Â torella Â wants Â him Â to Â be Â or Â the Â forward Â other Â players Â on Â the Â team Â are Â molding Â themselves Â to Â be. Â However, Â his Â role Â and Â identity Â as Â a Â right Â wing Â is Â invaluable Â to Â the Â team Â and Â no Â matter Â what Â the Â Rangers Â could Â get Â for Â him, Â they Â will Â not Â make Â up Â for Â Gaborikâ€™s Â loss. True, Â Gaborik Â has Â not Â been Â as Â up Â to Â snuff Â as Â he Â was Â last Â season. Â Heâ€™s Â not Â shoot-Â ing Â as Â much Â and Â even Â though Â a Â shorter Â sea-Â son Â means Â less Â goals, Â heâ€™s Â going Â at Â a Â much Â slower Â rate Â than Â he Â was Â last Â season. Â And Â yes, Â he Â is Â coming Â off Â of Â a Â serious Â shoulder Â surgery, Â but Â Tortorella Â and Â Rangers Â manage-Â ment Â are Â expecting Â more, Â as Â they Â should Â be. However, Â everyone Â knows Â trading Â Gaborik Â right Â now Â would Â be Â a Â horrendous Â move. Â Even Â Tortorella Â who Â has Â had Â a Â (at Â
best) Â lukewarm Â relationship Â with Â the Â right Â winger Â would Â be Â furious Â with Â such Â a Â move. Â Gaborik Â is Â a Â pure Â goal-Âscorer, Â some-Â thing Â thatâ€™s Â in Â short Â supply Â around Â the Â league, Â let Â alone Â the Â Rangersâ€™ Â roster.

A Â Guide Â To Â Watching Â The Â Mets Â In Â 2013
There Â is Â no Â question Â this Â is Â going Â to Â be Â a Â less-Âthan-Âfun Â season Â for Â us Â Mets Â fans. Â While Â 2013 Â is Â clearly Â a Â transition Â year Â between Â two Â eras Â â€“ Â one Â marked Â by Â overspending Â and Â poor Â decision Â making Â and Â the Â other Â a Â clear Â step Â toward Â a Â bright-Â er Â future Â â€“ Â it Â does Â not Â change Â the Â fact Â the Â Mets Â will Â have Â no Â semblance Â of Â â€œmean-Â ingful Â games Â in Â Septemberâ€? Â this Â year. Â So Â how Â can Â Mets Â fans Â endure Â what Â is Â sure Â to Â be Â a Â long Â and Â grueling Â season Â full Â of Â growing Â pains? Â Donâ€™t Â worry, Â Iâ€™ve Â got Â some Â ideas. Â

Â They Â are Â heralded Â by Â many Â to Â be Â some Â of Â the Â best, Â and Â most Â exciting, Â prospects Â in Â baseball Â â€“ Â and Â if Â we Â are Â going Â to Â make Â it Â through Â 2013, Â dreaming Â about Â a Â brighter Â future Â will Â be Â paramount.

Â But, Â if Â a Â few Â of Â us Â can Â scramble Â to-Â gether Â some Â spare Â quarters, Â we Â can Â forgo Â the Â tickets Â and Â just Â send Â Sandy Â Alderson Â and Â Fred Â Wilpon Â some Â extra Â money Â to Â spend Â next Â offseason.

ITEM Â 2: Â Whiskey Â
I Â know Â Cat Â has Â written Â a Â fancy Â cock-Â tail Â Mets Â fans Â could Â make Â to Â get Â them Â through Â this Â season, Â but Â for Â me, Â only Â whiskey Â will Â be Â able Â to Â truly Â match Â the Â bitter Â taste Â that Â will Â be Â in Â fansâ€™ Â mouths Â for Â much Â of Â next Â season. Â Think Â about Â it, Â whiskey Â will Â not Â only Â help Â because Â it Â is Â the Â drink Â of Â the Â de-Â pressed Â and Â jaded, Â but Â it Â will Â also Â provide Â the Â perfect Â amount Â of Â post-Âshot Â sting Â that Â will Â make Â you Â close Â your Â eyes Â and Â divert Â your Â attention Â from Â the Â mess Â that Â is Â un-Â IROGLQJRQWKHÂżHOGLQIURQWRI\RX *** Studies Â have Â shown Â that Â Mets Â fans Â are Â almost Â twice Â as Â likely Â as Â Yankee Â fans Â ITEM Â 1: Â Scouting Â Reports Â to Â drink Â heavily, Â so Â do Â us Â proud, Â Mets Â 7KHÂżUVWWKLQJ\RXDUHJRLQJWRQHHG fans.

Before Â you Â ask Â if Â my Â eyes Â are Â at-Â tached Â to Â my Â brain Â â€“ Â hear Â me Â out. Â The Â Mets Â are Â going Â to Â have Â some Â pretty Â aw-Â ful Â losses Â in Â the Â near Â future, Â and Â nothing Â commemorates Â a Â truly Â dismal Â loss Â than Â the Â headline Â that Â graces Â the Â New Â York Â Post Â the Â next Â morning.

Thursday, Â March Â 14, Â 2013
Mets Â fans, Â weâ€™re Â heading Â into Â a Â rebuild-Â ing Â year. Â Soon Â our Â hands Â will Â be Â cleansed Â of Â Minayaâ€™s Â era Â of Â pain Â and Â heartbreak, Â and Â weâ€™ll Â enter Â an Â era Â of Â smart Â spending Â and Â homegrown Â talent. Â But Â thereâ€™s Â still Â a Â whole Â season Â before Â that Â excitement Â comes Â around. Â There Â will Â be Â one Â more Â summer Â of Â pain, Â and Â it Â may Â be Â the Â toughest Â one Â yet. Â Which Â is Â why Â in Â an Â effort Â to Â cope Â with Â the Â impending Â trauma Â spring Â and Â summer Â 2013 Â should Â bring, Â Iâ€™ve Â created Â a Â New Â York Â Mets Â cocktail Â to Â get Â us Â all Â through. Â Sure, Â weâ€™re Â all Â going Â to Â be Â miserable, Â but Â letâ€™s Â all Â be Â miserable Â and Â drunk Â and Â sad Â together. What Â youâ€™ll Â need: Â 12 Â oz. Â sweet Â tea, Â a Â shot Â of Â moonshine, Â a Â tablespoon Â of Â Grand Â Marnier, Â a Â tablespoon Â of Â human Â tears, Â salt, Â ice, Â a Â 16 Â oz. Â whiskey Â glass Â and Â one Â orange Â rind, Â for Â garnish. Â 1. Â In Â honor Â of Â David Â Wrightâ€™s Â eight-Âyear Â contract Â and Â his Â role Â as Â face Â of Â the Â franchise, Â weâ€™re Â going Â to Â start Â our Â drink Â off Â with Â some Â Southern Â Sweet Â Tea. Â To Â begin, Â youâ€™ll Â want Â to Â pour Â all Â of Â the Â tea Â into Â your Â cocktail Â shaker. 2. Â After Â that, Â take Â your Â shot Â of Â moon-Â shine, Â (if Â youâ€™re Â watching Â the Â game Â as Â youâ€™re Â PDNLQJWKLVFRFNWDLO WU\\RXUKDUGHVWQRWWR down Â it Â right Â there Â and Â then Â pour Â it Â into Â the Â shaker. Â I Â thought Â about Â using Â tequila, Â but Â ul-Â timately Â went Â with Â the Â moonshine Â because Â it Â has Â a Â much Â more Â numbing, Â depressive Â effect. Â Youâ€™ll Â thank Â me Â later. 3. Â Next, Â the Â tears. Â Put Â them Â in Â the Â shaker. Â I Â know Â it Â might Â take Â a Â lot Â for Â some Â to Â cry, Â but Â watching Â three Â Mets Â games Â in Â a Â row Â should Â do Â the Â trick. Â Or Â you Â could Â just Â think Â about Â that Â time Â Luis Â Castillo Â dropped Â the Â ball. Â Gets Â me Â every Â time. 4. Â Put Â in Â your Â tablespoon Â of Â Grand Â Marnier. Â Sweet Â tea Â and Â orange Â is Â a Â favorite Â of Â mine. Â It Â tastes Â like Â the Â happiness Â and Â hope Â a Â new Â season Â of Â baseball Â brings. Â Only Â to Â be Â crushed Â by Â the Â eventual Â disappointment Â the Â Mets Â cause. 4. Â Grab Â the Â salt Â and Â pour Â it Â into Â your Â open Â wounds. Â Trust Â me, Â you Â needed Â it. Â 5. Â Now Â close Â the Â lid Â of Â the Â cocktail Â shaker Â and Â give Â it Â a Â good Â shake Â for Â 30 Â sec-Â onds. Â Give Â the Â cocktail Â a Â couple Â of Â minutes Â to Â stand Â as Â you Â put Â the Â ice Â cubes Â in Â the Â whiskey Â glass*. 6. Â Strain Â your Â cocktail Â into Â the Â glass Â and Â ÂżQLVKLWRIIZLWKDQRUDQJHULQGIRUJDUQLVK 9RLOD(QMR\DVEHVWDV\RXFDQZKLOHWKH Mets Â descend Â into Â one Â last Â downward Â spiral Â RIGDUNQHVV *Make Â sure Â you Â hold Â onto Â the Â whiskey Â glass Â for Â later. Â Youâ€™ll Â probably Â want Â some Â straight Â whiskey Â around Â the Â time Â of Â the Â HLJKWKLQQLQJZKHQWKH\ÂśUHXSE\ÂżYHUXQV and Â are Â about Â to Â lose Â that Â game Â 9-Â7.
