SUNY Women's BB Falls to Poly

Cobleskill, N.Y.: The SUNY Cobleskill women’s basketball team returned to North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) action at the Iorio Gymnasium on Wednesdayevening by dropping a hard fought 62-56 decision to NEAC North Division leader SUNY Polytechnic Institute at the Iorio Gymnasium. With the defeat the Fighting Tigers fall to 7-6 overall on the season including a 2-3 mark in conference play while the Wildcats are now 7-5 overall with a 3-0 conference record.

Down 46-to-32 entering the fourth quarter the Fighting Tigers staged a spirited rally that cut the Wildcats lead down to 58-56 when sophomore guard Addy Lawson, Cooperstown, N.Y., Milford High School, stole an errant Wildcat pass and went the length of the court to score with only 26 seconds left to play.

However the home team could not complete the comeback as SUNY Poly connected on four late free throws and a pair of Fighting Tiger three-point attempts fell short to give the visitors the road victory.

Addy Lawson scored 16 points, grabbed seven rebounds and passed out four assists to key the Cobleskill comeback with sophomore guard Shaliyah Graham, Bronx, N.Y., Martin King Jr. High School, adding 16 points, nine rebounds and three steals. Sophomore center Stacey Sprague, Grand Gorge, N.Y., Roxbury High School, contributed eight points and 13 rebounds in the game while freshman forward Ali Changa, Watervliet, N.Y., Watervliet High School, added eight points and three rebounds on the evening.

The Fighting Tigers will next be in action over the weekend when they travel to Pennsylvania for a pair of NEAC contests starting on Saturday January 13th when they make their way to Chambersburg, Pa. to face the Phoenix of Wilson College for a 3:00 p.m. tip-off before heading to Bryn Athyn, Pa. for a conference meeting with the Lions of Bryn Athyn College beginning at 2:00 p.m.

Whittling Away: A New New Year

Goodbye to the old year, hello to the new one.  It’s a good thing that at this time of the year we get a “Do over”.  2017 is about worn out.  It had its good moments but they were overshadowed by a whole bunch of bad ones.  Hopefully we’ve learned how to avoid or at least smooth out some of the rough spots. One of the things that I don’t look forward to is making resolutions.  I don’t fully understand this or why we do it except that it’s a law or something.  My first resolution for 2018 is to make new resolutions.  I will admit that for years I’ve just recycled the ones from the year before.  I’m going to make new resolutions mainly because the old envelope I wrote them on many years ago is so worn and wrinkled that I can no longer read them.  I think I’ll start my list with the ever popular ‘lose weight’. That’s probably the leading resolution among our steadily widening population.  In the beginning of the year, it’s hard to find Kale, spinach or anything green and healthy in the produce aisle at the market.  Gym membership rockets up, sales on running shoes go through the roof and you can’t find a pair of yoga pants in any store. This dearth of healthy things usually doesn’t last more than a couple of weeks.  Pizza sales go back up and the junk food aisles fill up once again and ‘lose weight’ stays at the top of next year’s resolution list. 

Making resolutions is tough at my age.  A good resolution should improve your life or make you a better person.  At my age, I’ve outlived most of my bad habits.  Wild women and fast cars have lost some of their appeal, my alcohol consumption last year was two glasses of wine and a bottle of beer, the only vice I’ve got left is my old pipe and I don’t intend to give it up.  I should read more and watch TV less, that’s a good one.  I’m getting a new hip January fifth so maybe I’ll take up ballet although I’m not sure if ballet shoes come in size 13.  I think I’ll resolve to spend more time with our new pup, Telly.  That won’t be a hard resolution to keep, he’s so darn cute.  It’s like having a three year old around the house and now I‘ve got time to enjoy the antics of a three year old, time I didn’t have when my kids were that age.  Another resolution I’m going to make is to show the Queen more attention, tell her how much I appreciate the things she does to make our life better and remember to tell her how nice she looks and remind her how talented she is.  Another resolution would be to make myself a kinder gentler human.  Again at my age, not a hard resolution to stick to.  Life keeps getting better because I’m taking time to appreciate the small things around me, things that are easy to overlook during the busy years.  There is so much that’s beautiful around us and my main wish for the New Year is that you have the time to see and appreciate it.

     Thought for the week—Resolution in a bad cause is called stubbornness; stubbornness in a good cause is called resolution.

     Until next year, may you and yours be happy and well.

Delaware County Sheriff's Office Warns Against Potential Phone Scam

Written By Editor on 12/29/17 | 12/29/17

On 12/28/2017, the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by a concerned citizen of
Delaware County. The concerned citizen reports he received a phone call from an unknown
private number, in which an unidentified female caller attempted to convince the concerned
citizen to send her a large sum of money.
The female caller did not identify herself but did attempt to hurriedly convince the concerned
citizen to send her $4,000 immediately. The female caller advised that as a result of using her
cellphone while she was driving she had been involved in a motor vehicle accident last night and
was currently in court on the tickets issued to her as a result of the accident. The female caller
advised that if she didn’t pay the $4,000 in ticket fines immediately that she would lose her
license.
The concerned citizen advised that the female caller was very convincing and initially thought the
caller was a family member.
After taking a few minutes to think about the circumstances and to ponder the situation, the
concerned citizen reports that the caller then hung up.
This scam is very similar to the “Grandparent Scam” in which the NYS Office of the Attorney
General advises that “a grandparent receives a call from someone posing as a grandchild claiming
that he or she is traveling, been arrested, injured etc. and facing an urgent need for money – to
make bail, pay a fine, or pay for automobile repairs or medical expenses. The caller begs the
grandparent not to tell his or her parents. In these scams, the victims are then given instructions to

send funds to the scammers. More recently, scam artists have instructed grandparents to visit
retail stores, buy certain gift cards, and then provide the scammer with the information on the
back of the card.”
The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office cautions persons receiving such calls or any calls in which
they are pressured into hurriedly providing any personal information, any bank information, any
credit card or other financial account information against releasing any such information or
sending money until the information is verified through reliable and trustworthy sources.
The NYS Office of the Attorney General offers the following tips to protect against the
grandparent scam:
 Be suspicious of anyone who calls unexpectedly asking you to wire money.
 Verify any supposed emergency, by calling friends and family, before wiring
money.
 Develop a secret code or "password" with family members that can be used to
verify a true emergency.
 Limit personal information, such as vacation plans, shared on social media sites.
 Additional information can be found at:
https://ag.ny.gov/pdfs/Grandparent_Scheme_Brochure.pdf
The NYS Office of the Attorney General offers these additional tips to help consumers
avoid falling victim:
If the caller is a stranger, you should sense potential danger:
 Never give out personal information to a stranger on the phone, even if they claim
to be a representative from your bank, credit card company, or any other company
with which you’ve done business.
 Never wire money through Western Union, MoneyGram, or any other wire
service to a stranger.
 Never purchase gift cards for the purpose of providing the gift card numbers to a
stranger or someone who claims to be a loved one—gift cards are not a legitimate
form of payment.
If you have an elderly parent or loved one:
 Consider passing along these tips to them and don’t assume that they can’t be
victimized.
 Consider seeking their permission to be involved in their finances, including
asking credit card companies to alert you when they make an unusually large
purchase.
 Assure them that they should check with you before making a payment or
purchase, especially if a caller has instructed them not to.
 Encourage them to immediately contact you and/or the police if they get a call
like those described here.

Route 7 Worcester/Richmondville Bridge Complete

Written By Editor on 12/28/17 | 12/28/17

New York State Department of Transportation Acting Commissioner Paul A. Karas
today announced completion of a $3.9 million replacement of the State Route 7 Bridge
over the Norfolk Southern Railroad in the Town of Worcester, Otsego County.  The
bridge connects Otsego and Schoharie counties.

“Because we replaced this bridge, it will continue to serve as a safe, reliable connection
for the community,” Acting Commissioner Karas said.  “Governor Cuomo’s investments
across the region are strengthening infrastructure and supporting economic growth in
the Mohawk Valley.”

Construction of the new multi-girder bridge was expedited and completed in one
construction season.  Work began in March and was finished last month, in time for the
holiday travel season.  The original bridge opened to traffic in 1941. The new bridge
meets today’s design standards with five-foot- wide shoulders and 23 feet of vertical
clearance.

Approximately 2,000 vehicles per day travel the Route 7 Bridge over the Norfolk
Southern Railroad. When necessary, Route 7 serves as an emergency detour for
Interstate 88.

Senator James L. Seward said, “A sound infrastructure is crucial to public safety and
economic growth.  This bridge improvement project will mean a great deal to those who
live and work in both Otsego and Schoharie counties and was a top priority for
emergency responders as well.  Swift completion of this work, prior to the tough winter
travel season, is a definite positive.  I appreciate Governor Cuomo and the Department
of Transportation recognizing the importance of this work for the future of our region.”
