A PORT JACKSON MEDIA PUBLICATION 75 CENTS Empire Health solutions Tryon biz is making an impact By LEVI PASCHER For The Recorder PERTH Although Empire State Health Solutions hasn t started manufacturing medicinal marijuana, company and county officials said the new business has already started providing a boost to the local economy. After receiving state approval last month, the business is moving forward with plans to grow and manufacture medical marijuana on 20 acres of land within the Tryon Technology Park and Incubator Center campus on Route 107. Empire State Health Solutions is expected to have a significant economic impact early next year when it begins full production and starts supplying more high-wage jobs within the community. Dr. Kyle Kingsley, Empire CEO, said the for-profit facility will contribute to the tax base but the exact economic impact and the number of jobs created will be based on the patient adoption rate next year. We re excited to be an anchor tenant of Tryon Technology Park and we hope to spur the movement of more businesses to the area, including our vaporizer manufacturing center, Kingsley said. We ve already invested a significant sum of money to both retrofit the facilities to meet our needs and to build our team here in Fulton County. We recognize the fact that the economy here is struggling, and we hope to play a major role in the revitalization.

Page 13 Slump in oil-by-rail boosts car storage business By MARY ESCH TAHAWUS New tank car safety standards coupled with a slump in oil-by-rail shipments are causing headaches for many in the railroad business, but for a struggling scenic railroad in the Adirondacks and other short-line operators, they may bring salvation. Ed Ellis, president of Saratoga and North Creek Railway, said he plans to store up to 500 empty tank cars for a year or more on seldom-used tracks near the High Peaks Wilderness region of the Adirondacks. He estimated storage fees could add up to seven figures, ensuring the future of the cash-strapped tourist train. Developing the revenue A DAY FOR THE KNIGHTS Railroad tracks owned by Iowa Pacific Holdings vanish into the Adirondack forest in Newcomb. The railroad wants to supplement its revenues by storing hundreds of empty oil tank cars on the tracks. Alex Cooper/Recorder staff Pete Vroman and Christine Andrzejewski talk during the Knights of Columbus Street festival Saturday in Amsterdam. The return of the festival coincided with the Feast of the Assumption. More photos, Page 6. Local flavor in Legion leadership VAN DE BOGART By NICOLE ANTONUCCI Recorder News Staff There is more than one Amsterdam native at the helm of the New York State American Legion this year. Working alongside newly elected State Commander James Yermas is lifelong friend A. Fred Van de Bogart, who was elected to the 3rd and 4th District vice commander position at the state convention held in July. I am still adjusting to it. It s is quite an honor, Van de Bogart said last week, adding he is anxious to start working with Yermas to move the American Legion forward. Bogart said one of his main objectives for the 3rd and 4th District is to increase membership, specifically attracting veterans from Desert Storm. It s not going to be easy. It was a different war. Some of them have been in for over 10 years and when they get out, they don t want to be around other veterans, which is understandable, Van de Please see LEGION, Page 4 stream from the storage is very helpful for making the railroad viable, Ellis said of the Saratoga line, which he noted several months ago was operating in the red.

Making a difference IF YOU HAVE SOLD BEFORE SEEING US... YOU VE LOST MONEY! F-MCC: INTO THE FUTURE By AMY RADIK For The Recorder Dr. Jerry and Gail Ryan s story is one of love, loss, and compassion. The Ryans met at Fulton-Montgomery Community College in the early 70s: Jerry was a graduate student intern at FM in 1972 and later was hired in 1973 as an assistant to then-president Hadley Stretch DuPuy. Gail was working at the F-M library as a clerk-typist when Jerry arrived on campus, a job she started shortly after graduating from Mayfield High School in Soon after starting her full-time job at the library, Gail began taking evening courses at F-M. Jerry was serving as an evening academic advisor when Gail introduced herself to him in January 1973 during a break in evening classes. He asked her out a few times and was turned down due to conflicts in their schedules. Jerry was determined. He wouldn t take no for an answer, Jerry became aware of Gail s involvement with the POW/MIA Club and he attended one of the meetings in April. It wasn t four months that passed when the two became husband and wife. They were married the Friday night of Labor Day weekend at Sacred Heart Church in Gloversville, and held the reception at Gail s parents house on East State Street in Gloversville. Since that time, they have been taken on a journey due to career changes throughout the years. Jerry served in high-status administration positions, including four community college presidencies at institutions in several states. When opportunity knocked, Jerry answered. Gail, a professional in human resource management for more than 25 years, supported her husband as she was always able to find a position or work something out as she, too, held significant rank in her primary career field. Gail and Jerry s travels took them to various states from New York to New Jersey, to Maryland, Massachusetts, and Louisiana, where they currently reside. In February, they came back to New York State, but for a heartbreaking reason, as Gail s mother had passed away. Gail s mother, Margaret Marge Collier volunteered with many community organizations and was one of several local supporters who petitioned in the early 60s for signatures of support to help establish FMCC. She and her husband John firmly believed that children should be provided an affordable and local college education. They were thrilled when F-M opened its doors to its first students in Six of their seven children either graduated or took courses at F-M while the seventh graduated from another New York State community college. With her passion for helping others and the importance of an education, Marge trained and became a home health aide. To honor her mother, Gail and Jerry recently made the trip from Louisiana back to Johnstown, this time, to meet with the FM Foundation Office to set up the Margaret A. Collier Home Health Aide Scholarship Fund, with an initial donation of $5,000. Thanks to their generosity, the Margaret A. Collier Home Health Aide Scholarship will provide $500 to a student enrolled in FM s Home Health Aide Program for as long as the scholarship is funded. Being a home health aide gave Margaret Collier the true privilege of making a difference. She loved to help others; Gail and Jerry know she would have wanted to help someone looking to follow in her footsteps.

Marconi, 81 of McDougall Road, Pattersonville, died peacefully Friday, Aug. 14, at Ellis Hospital in Schenectady. She was born in Scotia and was the daughter of the late Charles T. and Ruth (Parsons) DeGroat. Mrs. Marconi lived in Pattersonville for more than 40 years and was formerly from Burnt Hills. She worked for GE before marrying Joseph Marconi, then she was a stay-athome mother for her remaining years. Melisse was MARCONI well known for her love of nature, especially her cats. She was the wife of the late Joseph C. Marconi; mother of Joseph F. Marconi; sister of the late Jeanine Carol DeGroat; dear friend of Ken and Pat Aucompaugh; and their family and friends. All are welcome to attend her funeral Tuesday, Aug. 18, at noon at Townley & Wheeler Funeral Home, 21 Midline Road, Ballston Lake. A calling hour will be observed from 11 a.m. to noon prior to the service. Interment will be in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Rensselaer. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation in Melisse s memory to Animal Protective Foundation, 53 Maple Ave., Scotia With confidence, the family has placed its trust in the loving care of the Townley & Wheeler Funeral Home, 21 Midline Road, Ballston Lake, and they encourage you to view and leave messages on Melisse s Book of Memories at Oliver Ollie N. Simonsen Funeral service Tryon from page 1 process and distribute medical marijuana in New York. Company officials said the new medical facility could employ 40 people by January and at least 75 in the next three years. Although property taxes and job creation will have the most noticeable impact on the economy, the business has also begun boosting the county s economy by purchasing building supplies to be used in updating the existing facility and hiring local contractors and others from across the state to complete the work. Empire has been putting design engineers and contractors to work at the Tryon facility. This summer the company got ahead of the licensing decision by completing site work at the Tryon park. Empire s contractors began demolition in June and started construction in the existing buildings. The first phase of the project involves renovating one of the existing Tryon buildings on the west side of the property to house a variety of operations including new grow rooms, security and business offices. IDA Executive Director and Fulton County Planning Director James Mraz said the new business is already having a positive effect on the surrounding communities. They have been purchasing local supplies and even though this is all just getting started there are already positive economic impacts being felt throughout our region, Mraz said. He said although some of the contractors may have been called in from outside the immediate region they are still assisting the local economy with the expenditures made on both lodging and dining. They are staying at our hotels and going out to dinner so the impacts are being felt all over our county, Mraz said. The second phase of the project includes the construction of the first greenhouse at the Tryon site. The third phase, which is scheduled for later this fall, would include developing additional facilities around the primary greenhouse. Mraz said the next step for the county is to consummate a land transaction with a purchase and sale agreement, which is expected to be completed later this year. He said the new medicinal facility will be the anchor business of the technology park for years to come. He also said having the first business move into the park could lead other businesses to make the same investment and provide more economic development in the region. It s a major step, Mraz said. This establishes the creditability of the facility and it has also created a lot of recognition. Obviously, this project has received a lot of local, regional, state and national attention. In every article there has been reference to the Tryon Technology Park and where it s located. Word is getting out that we have the newest technology park in New York state here in Fulton County and it is open for business. Oliver Ollie N.

But there are so many benefits. For one thing, the American Legion can become a source of camaraderie. Van de Bogart, who has been a member of the John J. Wyszomirski Post 701 in Amsterdam for 44 years, calls it a family. It became his second home after returning from Vietnam. As you know, the Vietnam veterans weren t treated well so I didn t have many friends. But then a non-veteran friend of mine took me into the American Legion then and they treated me like a god, Van de Bogart said. Unlike many of his comrades who were drafted into the military during Vietnam, Van de Bogart volunteered. After graduating from Amsterdam High School in 1966 he worked in a machine shop making ammunition boxes and was deferred from the military.

In 1967, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps. He served two tours in Vietnam as a tank gunner with the 3rd Marine Division and received the Purple Heart in the battle of Khe Sanh, South Vietnam, after suffering shrapnel wounds from a rocket explosion. He was honorably discharged as a Sergeant E-5 in To this day, Van de Bogart said he struggles to adjust to civilian life. When you are in the service you have your friends but when you get out, your life changes. It is hard to adjust to civilian life. It still is to this day, he said. That is why I hang out at the legion and I am part of so many other organizations. Van de Bogart has served numerous offices with the American Legion including post commander, county commander and district commander.

That means miles-long lines of black tank cars are showing up on long-unused rail spurs around the country as short-line railroads store them for the leasing companies or other entities that own them. Ellis said the Saratoga line s parent company, Chicago-based Iowa Pacific Holdings, recently put three miles of cars in storage at its facilities in Colorado and more are coming.... We have a guy who s marketing car storage for us full time. Iowa Pacific, which operates 11 short lines, announced last month that it was repurposing track to store up to 10,000 cars taken out of service because of the new federal safety rules. Right now, there is an apparent shortage of storage space, said George Betke, CEO of Farmrail, a regional railroad in western Oklahoma. We get a couple calls a week from parties looking to store cars. Some short line operators are full. Most short line railroads haul low-value commodities on a limited basis, Betke said. You tend to have a side track that s not in use. We have a 10-mile stretch that no longer has a customer on it, so it s a great place to store strings of cars. The railroads negotiate storage the 40 & 8.

He is also a member of community organizations such as the Polish American Veterans, Elks Lodge 101, and the Irish American Club. However, Van de Bogart said he has noticed that over the years membership in the American has decreased and new members are few and far between. It is the same people that have been there, he said. It would be nice to get some new veterans. We need some new blood. Van de Bogart worked for General Electric from 1972 to He also owned and operated his own plumbing and electrical business. He resides in the town of Florida with his wife Donna. fees, which generally range from $2 to $20 per car, Betke said. Car owners are willing to pay more for storing uncleaned tank cars, like the ones Ellis is seeking, to avoid the $3,500 cleaning fee. Ellis s storage plan in New York has raised objections from environmental groups because the tracks from North Creek to Tahawus are in the 6-millionacre Adirondack Park, a patchwork of public and private land where development is strictly regulated under state law. Railroads are governed by federal rules, but state environmental officials and the Adirondack Park Agency said they are looking into whether they have any oversight in this case. While the tankers are empty, they still have residual oil inside, so federal regulations require them to be labeled as hazardous. The Sierra Club is absolutely opposed to mothballing obsolete oil tankers in the Adirondack High Peaks Wilderness Area and along the nascent Hudson River, said Roger Downs, conservation director of the club s Atlantic Chapter. At best, this proposal is an eyesore.
5 The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. STATE Monday, August 17, 2015 / 5 After decades, Guardian Angels resume Central Park rounds By JENNIFER PELTZ NEW YORK The squad in stop-signred jackets and berets strode through Central Park, on guard for signs of crime. It was a familiar sight a generation ago, when New York was plagued by lawlessness that police have worked for years to dispel. Yet Guardian Angels volunteers made a pointed return this month to Central Park for the first time in over two decades, citing a 26 percent rise in crime there so far this year. We realize things are much better than they were in the crime peak of the 1980s and early 90s, founder Curtis Sliwa says, but we want it to stay that way. City officials stress that crime is down citywide, and the park is far safer than it once was. Still, the renewed patrols by the Guardian Angels known for both crimefighting and controversy over their 35 years are bright-red signals of unease about whether New York, touted for years as the nation s safest big city, is slipping. Sliwa and eight other Guardian Angels, ranging from graying long timers to a 20- year-old woman, trooped along roadways, paths and rocky, dark trails for hours one night this week, shining flashlights into thickets, asking people whether they d had any trouble and eyeballing a quartet of teenagers who quickly took off on bicycles. Onlookers reactions ranged from thumbs up to raised eyebrows. Time warp! one passing jogger exclaimed. I didn t even know they were still in business, Harlem resident Christine Adebiyi said, but it s great to see them here. After years of celebrating crime drops, the nation s biggest city has seen killings rise by 9 percent so far this year, though serious crime overall is down 5 percent. Forty-six percent of city voters in a recent Quinnipiac University poll said crime was a very serious problem, a record going back at least to A quarter-century after the Central Park jogger rape case made the park a symbol of urban danger, officials boasted in recent years that the 842-acre expanse was one of the safest urban parks of its size worldwide. Despite this year s increase largely a result of robberies going from 11 at this point last year to 22 so far in 2015 overall crime in the iconic park is down more than 80 percent compared with two decades ago, the New York Police Department said. Even with the recent spike, crime is lower than just two years ago, NYPD statistics show. Mayor Bill de Blasio says the park remains absolutely safe and suggests police need no help from the Guardian Angels. The NYPD is the best-qualified force to handle the situation, he said this week. Police circulating in patrol cars and shining high-powered lights maintain a visible presence in the park at night. But Sliwa says officers don t penetrate into the secluded spots where criminals could lurk, an argument he underscored as the Guardian Angels passed an unilluminated NYPD light stanchion on a foot trail. Police later said the light is fully operational. Guardian Angels feel much of their function is deterring crime, but if they see it, they re ready to make citizens arrests, call police and defuse potential problems. This week, they prompted some young men to move on amid reports that the youths had been throwing rocks at people in the park and broke up a shoving match between two other men, Sliwa said. A talk-radio host, Sliwa is an untrammeled critic of the first-term Democratic mayor, whom he accuses of hamstringing police. De Blasio has emphasized changing policing to build trust in minority communities and says the overall drop in crime shows his approach works, though he has had a fraught relationship with the NYPD. To some extent, the Central Park patrols signal that those unhappy with the direction that he wants to take the city are starting to mobilize, said Queens College political science professor Michael Krasner. The Guardian Angels began in 1979 and quickly expanded to other cities, welcomed by some people as a tough-minded neighborhood watch, derided by others as loose-cannon, publicity-seeking vigilantes. By the mid-1990s, some chapters folded and the Guardian Angels reputation took a hit when Sliwa acknowledged fabricating some of their early exploits. Meanwhile, Sliwa was nearly killed in a 1992 kidnapping and shooting that mob scion John Junior Gotti was charged with ordering; prosecutors gave up after four juries deadlocked. But the Guardian Angels endured and evolved: By 2006, they had a $200,000 New York state grant to do online safety education. They now count about 5,000 members in 18 countries, Sliwa says. In New York, Guardian Angels still patrol parts of Brooklyn and the Bronx regularly. But shortly after Rudy Giuliani s mayoralty began in 1994, they felt policing had intensified enough that they weren t needed to fight crime in Central Park, Sliwa says. It got better, until recently, he says. That s why you need to nip it in the bud now. THE NEWS IN BRIEF Missing NY man, 70, is found alive... AVON (AP) Authorities say a 70-year-old man has been found alive in a wooded area in western New York a week after he fell while out for a walk. Police say Donald Farrell was found Sunday morning amid trees and tall weeds about two miles from his home in the Livingston County village of Avon 20 miles south of Rochester. Officials say he was found by his cousin on the cousin s property. Farrell had been last seen going for a walk on the morning of Aug. 9. He was taken to a Rochester hospital, where he s being treated for dehydration. Police say he was in excellent condition considering he had been exposed to the elements for a week. Farrell told officials that he fell while walking and couldn t get back up.... While another remains missing GERMAN (AP) State police say they re looking for an 81-year-old upstate New York man who was reported missing by family members over the weekend. Troopers in Chenango County say Alfred Turshman of the town of German was reported missing around 3 p.m. Saturday. Police say he was last seen the previous afternoon in the neighboring Cortland County town of Cincinnatus. Troopers say Turshman suffers from dementia. The search by troopers, state forest rangers and local emergency personnel is focusing on a rural area along the Cortland-Chenango county line 40 miles southeast of Syracuse. Cops: Drunk has his kid drive him home STILLWATER (AP) Police say an upstate New York man had his 10-year-old child drive his pickup truck while he was sitting in the passenger seat drunk. The Times Union of Albany reports police in the Saratoga County town of Stillwater were contacted by a motorist on Saturday who saw the child driving the truck on Route 9P. Police say officers pulled over the truck and found that the 10-year-old was behind the wheel while his father, 46- year-old John Barling of Saratoga Springs, was intoxicated in the passenger seat. Police say the child was picked up by a relative and Barling was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and permitting unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. Saratoga County Child Protective Services was contacted by police. It couldn t be determined if Barling has an attorney who could comment on the charges. County considering ban on e-cigarettes BINGHAMTON (AP) An upstate New York county health department has proposed a ban on electronic smoking devices in all public buildings. The Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin reports the proposal, submitted to the Broome County Legislature on Wednesday, would prohibit e-cigarettes and similar vaping products in areas where smoking is banned under the Clean Indoor Air Act. If the proposal is passed, Broome County would be the 10th county in New York state to ban e-cigarettes, along with New York City s five boroughs. Sharon Fischer, coordinator for the health department s Tobacco Free Broome and Tioga program, says new research shows the vapor emitted by e-cigarettes is harmful to the health of the smoker and those nearby. Health Department Director Claudia Edwards says the ban would help in the campaign against youth smoking. Police ID 3 killed on the Taconic YORKTOWN (AP) Police have identified the three victims who were killed after a multi-vehicle crash on the Taconic State Parkway in Westchester. The crash Saturday afternoon in Yorktown also injured 8 people. Police say Nerim Sinanovic, of the Bronx, was driving his SUV north on the parkway when it crashed into the center median, went airborne and landed in the southbound lanes, north of Baldwin Road. His 2-year-old daughter, Leona, was killed in the crash. According to the Journal News, Sinanovic, his wife, Blerta, and 1-year-old daughter, Lira, are hospitalized in stable condition at Westchester Medical Center. Police say Sinanovic s SUV struck a 2001 Toyota in the southbound lane, killing Ledell Mulvaney and her daughter Katherine Mulvaney, both of Brooklyn. The Toyota s driver, Donald Mulvaney, is listed in critical condition. Engine explosion sets fire to boat MERRICK (AP) Officials say a man trying to fix his boat s motor was injured after the engine exploded and set fire to his vessel on Long Island. Newsday reports the 43- year-old man was boating Sunday in Sea Dog Creek off Freeport when he began experiencing engine problems. Nassau police say the man piloted his vessel to the rear dock of a home on Hewlett Avenue in Merrick where he started working on the engine. The engine erupted soon after, burning the man s face, arms and legs. The man was transported to an area hospital, where his condition was unclear. The Merrick Fire Department was called to extinguish the blaze. Sen.: Give border jobs to soldiers PLATTSBURGH (AP) Sen. Charles Schumer wants to expedite hiring for border protection jobs by recruiting returning soldiers to fill them. Schumer is sponsoring a bill that would require federal agencies to recruit qualified military service members for currently open positions as U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers. He says the bill seeks to address delays in hiring that have left border crossings understaffed, while giving veterans the opportunity to continue protecting their country. Schumer says soldiers returning home to the North Country from overseas have the skills and training needed for these positions. Law authorizes 3 lines per fisherman ALBANY (AP) New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has signed legislation to extend the three-rod rule for the state s freshwater fishermen through The law says any angler can use up to three fishing lines. It was set to expire at the end of this year. Sponsors note that it won t guarantee they catch more fish, but it should increase the odds. They also say it shouldn t damage the state s fisheries overall since catch limits remain in effect. HARD ROOT BEER WE HAVE IT 2 KINDS!

7 The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. YOUR WORLD Monday, August 17, 2015 / 7 Republican presidential candidate, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, talks with Dana Wanken, right, as he works the grill in the Iowa Pork Producers tent during a visit to the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, Iowa, Aug. 14. Presidential hopefuls hit the gym, skip pie By CATHERINE LUCEY DES MOINES, Iowa Scott Walker is counting steps on his FitBit. Jeb Bush swears by the Paleo diet. Bobby Jindal is a gym rat. With long travel days and a fresh slab of cherry pie never far away, the campaign trail is notoriously unhealthy. But many 2016 presidential candidates are striving to make smart lifestyle choices as they tour the small town diners and pizza places of the early voting states. I try to do at least 10,000 steps a day, said Walker, the Wisconsin governor. He said he got the step-counting wristband for Christmas and competes with his family and staff to see who moves the most in a day. He added, The FitBit s got me obsessed. Walker isn t the only candidate trying to get exercise on the road. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio does an early morning workout in hotel gyms. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz also wears a FitBit and likes to take phone calls while walking. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum does at least 50 pushups a day and former executive Carly Fiorina works out on the elliptical most mornings, aides said. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who had back surgery in 2011, said late last year that he has a workout routine that focuses on core strength. Asked about his back, he said: It s good. I quit running and I quit wearing cowboy boots... I do a lot of pull-ups, pushups, planks, crunches, and I ride a stationary bike. Diet is important to many 2016 hopefuls, too. Bush has slimmed down using the Paleo diet, heavy on lean meats and vegetables and low on carbohydrates and dairy. The former Florida governor has been known to toss the roll off his plate to stick to the rules. He cheats from time to time, though. In the spring he was caught on camera digging into blueberry pie in New Hampshire. These efforts help with health and stamina. But the candidates also want to look good on camera and along the rope line in a selfie-ready world. President Barack Obama showed a disciplined approach to health and fitness during his campaigns, rising for pre-dawn workouts. First lady Michelle Obama is also a fitness devotee whose Let s Move campaign strives to reduce childhood obesity. Hillary Rodham Clinton tries to avoid pizza, work out regularly and do yoga from time to time, said spokesman Nick Merrill. And former Maryland Gov. Martin O Malley said working out regularly and opting for vegetables over fast food helps with the stresses of the trail. You can t get sick when you re in this sort of job, O Malley said. So like an athlete, your body becomes your tool. Politicians who struggle with weight must do so in public. Two years ago, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie had surgery on his stomach to make it smaller. He hasn t revealed how much weight he s shed, but he has slimmed down considerably and gets complimented frequently by potential voters. While the surgery means Christie s diet is selective, he has taken time to indulge on the trail. At an Italian-American Heritage Festival in Des Moines, Iowa, Christie partook in a baconwrapped date, but passed other food he was offered to an aide. Oh no, no, he reportedly said before indulging, according to The New York Times. Iowa wraps everything in bacon! Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has been more vocal about his health. Huckabee dropped 100 pounds through diet and exercise about 12 years ago and documented his success in his book Quit Digging Your Grave with a Knife and Fork. In the past few years his weight has crept back up; he says he s lost some again, though he is not as light as when he was running marathons. I ve eliminated sugar, fried foods, junk foods, Huckabee said. Still, he said there are always temptations when campaigning and it is tough to eat a salad on the run: The other day we were at Pizza Ranch, so I had a couple slices of pepperoni. We looked at each other and said, By JOSH BOAK WASHINGTON Short of cash and unsettled in their careers, young Americans are waiting longer than ever to buy their first homes. The typical first-timer now rents for six years before buying a home, up from 2.6 years in the early 1970s, according to a new analysis by the real estate data firm Zillow. The median firsttime buyer is age 33 in the upper range of the millennial generation, which roughly spans ages 18 to 34. A generation ago, the median first-timer was about three years younger. The delay reflects a trend that cuts to the heart of the financial challenges facing millennials: Renters are struggling to save for down payments. Increasingly, too, they re facing delays in some key landmarks of adulthood, from marriage and children to a stable career, according to industry and government reports. These shifts help explain why homeownership, long a source of middle class identity and economic opportunity, has started to decline. The share of the U.S. population who own homes has slid to 63.4 percent, a 48-year low, according to the Census Bureau. And when young adults do sign the deed, their purchase price is now substantially more, relative to their income, than it was decades ago. First-time buyers are paying a median price of $140,238, nearly 2.6 times their income. In the early 1970s, the starter home was just 1.7 times income. Millennials are still very interested in buying a house, but they re delaying that decision, said Svenja Gudell, chief economist at Zillow. Once they start having kids, they begin looking for homes. We re also finding that given how much rental rates are currently rising a lot of folks are having a hard time saving for a down payment and qualifying for a mortgage. Millennials increasingly find themselves in a situation like that of Lou Flores, a 30-year-old portfolio manager in San Diego. He shares a one-bedroom apartment with his boyfriend, paying $1,400 a month to live within walking distance of Balboa Park and the zoo. Flores parents had built their nest egg by steadily upgrading their homes, ingraining him with the notion that renting was a waste of money. But the median home in San Diego costs more than a half million dollars, according to the area s association of Realtors. So Flores figures ownership is at least a few years away.

Americans are waiting longer than ever to buy first homes Sponsored by St. Mary s Healthcare Renting longer before buying homes Americans are waiting longer buy their first homes than they did decades ago. MEDIAN NUMBER OF YEARS RENTING BEFORE BECOMING A FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYER 7 years years SOURCE: Zillow Here in California, if you re not married or with someone, it s impossible to buy a home without financial backing from your parents, Flores said. Few first-timers around the country can lean on their parents. Among homebuyers last year under age 34, 14 percent received down payment help from family or friends, according to a Federal Reserve survey. Most first-timers still depend on personal savings for at least some of their down payments. But rising rental prices have complicated the task of socking away money for a down payment. Fueled by a surge of renters across all age ranges, rental prices nationally have grown at roughly twice the pace of average hourly wage growth, which was a paltry 2.1 percent over the past year. A result is that those prices are consuming more income. A striking 46 percent of renters ages 25 to 34 the core of the millennial population spend more than 30 percent of their incomes on rent, up from 40 percent a decade earlier, according to a report by Harvard University s Joint Center of Housing Studies. (The housing industry generally regards a figure above 30 percent as financially burdensome.) Some of the cost burden stems from a shift toward people who envision themselves renting for several years and therefore seeking the kinds of amenities more commonly associated with home Amsterdam Rotary District # ownership. Based on searches for rentals on RadPad in June and July, for example, apartments with stainless steel appliances and swimming pools were disproportionately popular in cities with lower homeownership rates such as Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington. Nearly a fifth of Washington-area searches sought apartments with stainless steel appliances, compared with 5 percent nationwide. More than a third of Chicagoans wanted an apartment with a pool, versus 18 percent nationally. Job security has become a more central consideration for first-time buyers. The Money Source, a mortgage lender and servicer, examined applications from 5,404 millennial homebuyers. It found that the buyers had averaged nearly 4.5 years in their field of work and had held their current job for slightly more than three years. Those figures point to how critical career stability has become for a generation that entered the workforce during the Great Recession and its slow-growth recovery. Housing industry experts note that surveys still show a strong desire to buy among millennials, but that their timelines for purchasing depend on achieving more stability in their careers. As long as there is the job market to support millennials just as it has for previous generations I don t believe their habits will change, said Darius Mirsh-ahzadeh, CEO of The Money Source.

8 8 / Monday, August 17, 2015 OPINION The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. IN OTHER WORDS... Remembering the day the war ended The war was over. In Washington, Secretary of State James Byrnes got the news by phone from Switzerland, where the Japanese government communicated its unconditional surrender. Byrnes slammed down the handset in excitement, threw on his Panama hat and hurried across the street to the White House to inform President Harry Truman. The war was over. It was Aug. 14, On the final combat mission of World War II, a B-29 bomber called Uninvited dropped its payload on an oil refinery in northern Japan about six hours before Truman s announcement. The crew, including Sgt. Robert Pizer, a Chicagoan, returned safely to base in Guam. Now every American GI could expect to come home. The war was over. In downtown Chicago, thousands gathered to celebrate. Elsewhere in the city, Mrs. Luke Devine heard the announcement on a car radio and cried because it meant her two brothers overseas would be OK. In Washington, Arthur Sears Henning, the Chicago Tribune s bureau chief, sat down to write the story that would appear under the banner headline, GREAT WAR ENDS! The Japanese empire, Henning wrote, fell before the military and industrial might of the United States, climaxed last week by the projection of two atomic bombs America s terrible, new secret weapon upon two Japanese cities with devastating effect. His first paragraph said simply: The war is over. Deep in his richly reported story, Henning noted that victory came three years eight months and seven days after Japan s sneak attack on America at Pearl Harbor. Less than four years? Yes. As we mark the 70th anniversary of Japan s surrender and the end of World War II, the lightning speed of America s victory stands out: A world at war, tens of millions dead, the Jews of Europe nearly wiped out, the Nazis confronted and defeated, the Japanese countered, a fearsome weapon developed and used, and, finally, the Japanese conquered. All this cataclysmic destruction, aggression and resolute response all this history took place between Sept. 1, 1939, when Hitler invaded Poland and that August day in 1945 when Emperor Hirohito of Japan capitulated. America s direct involvement, that which changed so much in two theaters of war, had lasted just three years, eight months, seven days. Meanwhile, here in the 21st century, America s war on terrorism grinds on, nearly 14 years after 9/11. The contrast isn t meant to invite a comparison of achievements because the conflicts are so different. Rather, it s to note how extraordinarily quickly the United States rallied to the cause of freedom after being attacked Dec. 7, In the closing days of the war, with Japan s surrender anticipated, a Tribune editorial basked in the coming victory but did not gloat. America s fighting men accomplished the impossible. They were backed by American production, which also accomplished the impossible. Any discussion of the timing of Japan s surrender reopens debate over America s decision to drop the atom bomb on Hiroshima and then Nagasaki. They were two flashes of light that killed tens of thousands of people in seconds. The estimated death tolls are 140,000 for Hiroshima, 70,000 for Nagasaki. Was Japan already on its knees and poised to surrender, making the bombings a callous, vengeful act? Or were Japan s fanatical leaders, who were engaged in their own quest for the bomb, so intent on fighting to the point of annihilation that Truman had no choice? Reappraising history makes for intriguing discussion. Maybe a blockade would have slowly strangled the enemy. But American generals were worried. They had seen the ferocious will of a nearly vanquished foe who fought to the death on Okinawa. Japan was not giving up. What would an invasion of the main Japanese islands cost in American, and Japanese, lives? Military planners shuddered as they sketched out invasion scenarios for late 1945 and And if Japan did invent its own megaweapon Thankfully, the invasion was not required. In 1945, U.S. bombers turned Japanese cities made mostly of wood and paper to char and dust. Still, the Imperial Army fought. And so two bombs fell on Aug. 6 and 9, and Japan surrendered. Seventy years later, we recall how America won a war it had to win because the freedom of the world was at stake. We pause to commemorate, to express thanks and pay respects to all who died, as we do on each anniversary of Aug. 14, The day the war was over. Chicago Tribune GUEST COLUMN Rising from the ranks By JACQUELINE MURPHY For The Recorder Since the Historic Amsterdam League is presenting its tour of Old Town Saturday, Aug. 22, it seems appropriate to tell the story of one woman who rose from the ranks of the Pioneer Mill (former site at the rear of 31 E. Main St.) to become a national figure. Here is the story of Leonora Barry Lake. The post-civil War period ( ) saw immense wealth, over-expansion, wide-spread corruption and the rise of local tycoons all over the country, to the detriment of the working class. It took another decade before labor unions emerged to assist the beleaguered workers. Among the families searching for work during the industrial boom of the 1870s were William and Leonora Barry. They had married in Potsdam in 1871, then traveled to Massachusetts where jobs seemed more promising, eventually finding their way to upstate New York first Gloversville, then Amsterdam. The family took up residence on Voorhees Street. William was a painter by trade and gave cornet lessons. However, a lung disease caused his death in March Four months later, Leonora lost their youngest son. Both were buried from St. Mary s Church. She was a widow with two children. Leonora Kearney, born in 1849, had faced hardships before. Her parents had emigrated from Kearney, Ireland, to northern New York, St. Lawrence County, when she was 3 years old. The rocky soil of northern New York made it difficult for the Irish community to grow potatoes or much else. Her mother died when Leonora was in her early teens. When her father remarried a girl just a few years older than herself, Leonora set her mind to becoming a teacher. She took private lessons from the head of the nearby Colton girls school and received her certificate at 16. Her tall stature and stately carriage allowed her to successfully teach for seven years. The custom of the day did not allow married women to teach. Therefore, after the death of her husband she took the position of an unskilled laborer in the Pioneer hosiery mill, located in the area of the Bank Building on Main Street. At that time any type of knitting mill was considered hosiery. The 1889 Amsterdam Board of Trade listed 15 hosiery mills in the city. Wages were exceedingly low. Her first week s wages amounted to 65 cents. She toiled under these poor conditions to support her family. By 1884 the Knights of Labor were on the rise and she joined a women s branch. She rose rapidly to the post of master workman of the local branch which boasted more than 1,500 women. Many of these women worked in the shirt collar industry in Cohoes. In 1886, in the heat of August, among a delegation of The community living room To the editor: Saturday, behind the Amsterdam Free Library, on the bank of the North Chuctanunda, all the many people who help the library were thanked at a picnic. Employees Sharon Talmadge, Nick Lazarou and Katie Stevens were recognized. Volunteers John Boschi and John Spencer were specially thanked. Robin Kappler was honored for her long work with the Friends of the Library and as a member and president of the board of trustees. Mayor Ann Thane, Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara, and Congressman Paul Tonko spoke about Robin and made presentations to her. State Sen. Hugh Farley sent Robin his congratulations. I would like to thank Mary Insogna and Bill Mycek LETTER TO THE EDITOR five from the district, Leonora attended the countrywide convention of the Knights of Labor in Richmond, Va., and she was elected to the newly formed national department of women s work. At this new post, she worked tirelessly to improve conditions in factories wherever she could travel. She never returned to her factory job in Amsterdam. Instead, she found herself an organizer, troubleshooter and reformer on a nationwide scale for the women members of the relatively new union. Speaking and rallying in Pennsylvania, Leonora Barry was credited with the successful passage of factory inspection laws in that state. Her annual reports from 1887 through 1889 to the General Assembly of the Knights of Labor depict the deplorable conditions in the sweatshops of the period and the wide use of child labor. Her four years at her job left Leonora without a permanent home. In 1889 she was married to Obadiah Read Lake, who worked on the staff of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Leonora believed that women should not work outside the home except in the case of economic necessity, so she gave up her position with the Knights of Labor. However, she became an active figure in the temperance and suffrage movements. She took part in the successful 1893 campaign for women suffrage in Colorado. That same year she addressed the World s Columbian Exposition in Chicago on The Dignity of Labor. The Biographical Dictionary on Notable American Women description is: Tall, with a commanding presence, contagious smile, and flossing blue eyes under a broad brow, gifted with characteristically Irish humor, pathos, and spontaneity (she never prepared text), Mrs. Lake became widely sought after on the Chautauqua circuit and as a lecturer for the Redpath and Slayton agencies. Sometime she was know as Mrs. Barry Lake of Mother Lake. Leonora resigned her position in April 1890 when she married Obediah R. Lake, a newspaper printer from St. Louis. She continued to travel and speak from her new home in the midwest on behalf of women s suffrage, temperance and other social reform movements. Susan B. Anthony had asked her to speak at the 40th anniversary of the Seneca Falls Convention in Washington, D.C., in The National Labor College included Leonora Barry s biography in its initial publication of Labor Heritage in 2003, titling the 11 page article, Leonora Barry: First Voice for the Working Woman. Gov. George Pataki, in his project to honor women, awarded the funds to erect a purple and gold historic marker at the east end of the mall to Leonora Barry Lake. The Barrys had lived in a few places in the area, and attended St. Mary s Church, so the present placement of the marker was chosen at the east garden of the mall. who helped make the day special. Thanks goes to all the employees and volunteers that made food and helped put on the picnic. Thanks to the people of the city and town of Amsterdam who support the library. The library is not just a place for books, DVDs and talks. It is a kids place, a teens place, a seniors place, a place to help with job search and computer use, and much more. Someone said, The library stands in the center of Amsterdam and is the community living room. If you couldn t make it or we forgot to invite you, thanks for helping the library, JOHN NAPLE, Amsterdam The writer is a member of the Amsterdam Free Library Board of Trustees.

9 The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. YOUR WORLD Monday, August 17, 2015 / 9 Notable Mississippians join chorus to change state flag JACKSON, Miss. (AP) Jimmy Buffett, John Grisham, Morgan Freeman and former New Orleans Saints quarterback Archie Manning are among famous current and former Mississippi residents asking the state to remove the Confederate battle emblem from its flag. The famed musician, author, actor and athlete joined 60 others in signing a letter titled A Flag for All of Us, that appeared as a full-page ad in Sunday s edition of The Clarion-Ledger. It is simply not fair, or honorable, to ask black Mississippians to attend schools, compete in athletic events, work in the public sector, serve in the National Guard, and go about their normal lives with a state flag that glorifies a war fought to keep their ancestors enslaved, the letter states. Others who signed it include Kathryn Stockett, author of The Help; Grammy-winning producer Glen Ballard, Basketball Hall of Famer Bailey Howell, former Netscape CEO Jim Barksdale, former Mississippi Supreme Court Justice Reuben Anderson, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Richard Ford, and former Gov. William Winter. State governments and businesses around the U.S. have removed Confederate symbols since Dylann Roof was accused in June of killing nine black church members in Charleston, South Carolina. Roof appeared in photos with the Confederate flag, and authorities believe the slayings to be a hate crime. Following a contentious and emotional debate, lawmakers in South Carolina agreed to remove the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the Statehouse. It was taken down last month. The Rebel flag was never meant to fly over state capitols it was designed as a bright rallying Small planes collide in midair over California, 5 are killed SAN DIEGO (AP) Five people were killed as two airplanes collided while nearing an airport in Southern California, authorities said. The crash occurred around 11 a.m. PDT Sunday about 2 miles northeast of Brown Field Municipal Airport in southern San Diego County, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said. Both planes a twin-engine Sabreliner jet and a single-engine Cessna 172 were approaching Brown Field, Gregor said. The Sabreliner carrying four people was registered to military contractor BAE Systems, which said in a statement that its employees were aboard the aircraft. The company had no immediate information on the employees or what led to the collision. National Transportation Safety Board investigator Andrew Swick told KNSD-TV the crew members were civilian contractors on a military training flight. Swick said the Cessna s pilot was on a cross-country trip. Both planes caught fire when they hit the ground and broke apart, said Nick Schuler, a division chief with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. It appears it was a very violent crash, as you can tell by both aircraft being in multiple pieces, Schuler said. The wreckage was strewn across a wide area. Crews extinguished several brush fires where the planes came down. One firefighter was taken to the hospital after he suffered a heat-related injury, Schuler said. Brown Field, a former Naval auxiliary air station, is in the Otay Mesa area about 15 miles southeast of downtown San Diego, near the border with Mexico. The FAA and NTSB were investigating the cause of the collision. Officials: Papa John s Camaro stolen from Detroit-area show BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (AP) Officials say a Chevrolet Camaro used in promotions for pizza chain Papa John s was among three THE NEWS IN BRIEF point that could be seen even in the smoke of battle, the letter said. It noted that after the war, Gen. Robert E. Lee said, It s time to furl the flag, boys, and told Southerners to obliterate the marks of civil strife and to commit to oblivion the feelings it engendered. A number of prominent Mississippians House Speaker Philip Gunn, the state s Southeastern Conference football coaches, and even the greatgreat-grandson of Confederate President Jefferson Davis already had said they believed it was time to retire the Confederate symbol from Mississippi s flag. The tide is turning with business leadership saying it hurts our ability to recruit corporations and with coaches saying it hurts our ability to recruit athletes, state Sen. John Horhn, D-Jackson, told The Clarion-Ledger on Saturday (http://on.thecl.com/1gndv2w). The flag is a turnoff. But Greg Stewart, administrator of Beauvoir, the Jefferson Davis Home and Presidential Library, said Saturday that use of the Confederate battle flag by rap and hip-hop artists kind of sucks the wind out of the offensive argument. Gov. Phil Bryant said voters made their views clear in 2001, when 64 percent rejected a proposal to change the state flag to 20 white stars on a blue field. Fourteen years is a long time, said author Greg Iles, who signed the letter that appeared in Sunday s paper. Think of America in 1931 and then in 1945 that s 14 years, and a tectonic shift in national identity. Think of 1961 and 1975, he told the newspaper. The Confederate flag is no longer a viable state or national symbol in vehicles stolen during a Detroit-area event showcasing classic cars. Police Sgt. Cassandra Lewis tells the Detroit News authorities are investigating after the 1971 Camaro Z28 owned by the Louisville, Kentucky-based pizza company was reported missing Sunday morning from the Woodward Dream Cruise event in Oakland County. Papa John s spokesman Bob Kraut tells The Associated Press founder John Schnatter is distraught over the theft. Schnatter sold the gold-and-black car decades ago to help save his father s tavern in Indiana, leading to the start of what would become Papa John s. In 2009, after years of searching, Schnatter bought it back. Kraut says the vehicle was on display at the Dream Cruise, an event that draws hundreds of thousands of people each year. The newspaper reports two other cars were stolen. Tribe to keep pursuing casino even after failed referendum BOSTON (AP) A Martha s Vineyard tribe will continue pursuing a plan to turn an unfinished community center into a gambling hall after a tribal referendum to halt the effort failed Sunday. Tobias Vanderhoop, chairman of the Aquinnah Wampanoag tribe, said the vote was with eight votes disqualified. The vote among tribe members required a twothirds majority to halt the controversial casino project, which exposed deep divisions in the tribe and stoked tensions between the tribe and town. The will of our citizens, based on the result of today s vote, is that there will be no change to present course of the Tribe, Vanderhoop said in an to. He said the question posed to tribal members Sunday was: Do you vote to repeal Tribal Council enacted resolutions on change of use of the Unfinished Community Center Building on Tribal Lands? The tribe hopes to bring up to 300 electronic, bingo-style games to the community center. Casino table games such as blackjack or roulette were not proposed. Traffic deaths up sharply in first 6 months this year Traffic deaths Fatalities from motor vehicle accidents rose sharply in the first six months of 2015: 20 thousand SOURCE: National Safety Council WASHINGTON (AP) Traffic deaths were up 14 percent nationally in the first six months of this year and injuries were up by a third, according to data gathered by the National Safety Council. An improved economy and low gas prices have encouraged Americans to put a record number of miles on the road, said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president of the council. But, she said, that s not the whole explanation for the increase in deaths and injuries. All told, nearly 19,000 people across the country lost their lives in traffic accidents through June, and the tally doesn t include two of the historically highest months for traffic deaths, July and August, said the council, a nonprofit organization created by Congress to promote safety. If the trend continues, traffic deaths this year could exceed 40,000 for the first time since 2007, when there were nearly 44,000 deaths, Hersman said in an interview. The increases began in the last quarter of 2014 and have been recorded consistently through each month of this year, Hersman said. As a safety professional, it s not just disappointing but heartbreaking to see the numbers trending in the wrong direction, she said. The nation s driving steadily increased for 15 consecutive months through May, the Transportation Department said in July. Americans drove 1.26 trillion miles in the first five months of 2015, passing the previous record, 1.23 trillion, set in May However, the cumulative increase in vehicle mileage this year through May is 3.4 percent, far less than the 14 percent increase in deaths, Hersman noted. Also, the estimated annual mileage death rate so far this year is 1.3 deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled, up from the preliminary 2014 rate of 1.2 deaths. Other safety trends are at play as well. In recent decades, deaths due to crashes involving drunken driving have dropped from about 50 percent of fatalities to about 30 percent, she said. Teen driving deaths are also down, and seatbelt use is up. And cars have more safety technology than ever, although drivers sometimes don t use it or don t know how to use it, Hersman said. On the other hand, a growing number of states are raising speed limits, and everywhere drivers are distracted by cellphone calls and text messages. The council estimated in a report this spring that a quarter of all crashes involve cellphone use. Besides fatal crashes, that includes injury-only and property damage-only crashes. For many years people have said, If distraction is such a big issue, why don t we see an increase in fatal crash numbers? Well, we re seeing increasing fatal crashes numbers, but I think it s complicated to tease out what that is due to, Hersman said. Jonathan Adkins, executive director of Governors Highway Safety Association, which represents state highway safety offices, confirmed that states have taken note of the trend as well. Given the stronger economy, lower unemployment and low gas prices, we have expected an uptick in travel and, sadly, deaths, he said : 18, NOTE: Figures are for January 1 through June 30 of each year.

10 10 / Monday, August 17, 2015 YOUR LIFE The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. GARFIELD / By Jim Davis DILBERT / By Scott Adams JEFF MACNELLY S SHOE / By Chris Cassatt & Gary Brookins B.C. / By Mastroianni & Hart HAGAR THE HORRIBLE / By Chris Browne BLONDIE / By Dean Young & Denis LeBrun MUTTS / By Patrick McDonnell LUANN / By Greg Evans Woman fears imperfections DEAR ABBY: I met an amazing man and have been dating him for about three months. It was almost love at first sight. I say almost because I was hesitant to get involved since I am his boss. My problem is, for six By years I was in an emotionally and physically ABIGAIL VAN BUREN abusive relationship. My ex threw me through a wall, leaving me with broken ribs and lacerations on my face. I was constantly called fat especially when I was pregnant. Now that I m with this new guy, I feel awkward. He tells me how pretty I am, and I don t know how to respond. It makes me uncomfortable when he says it, and I have no idea why. I have fallen so hard for him, but feel like I hurt his feelings when I don t respond. It s not that I think I m ugly or anything; I just feel like I am not as pretty as he constantly says I am. How can I overcome this so it doesn t become a problem in the future? I m scared to death that one day he will wake up and realize that I m not as perfect as he thinks I am. NOT PERFECT IN ALABAMA DEAR NOT PERFECT: I don t know whether your self-esteem problem is longstanding and deep-seated, or if it stems from the abusive relationship you had with your ex. But a way to conquer it would be to discuss your feelings with a licensed mental health professional. On a related subject, it is common knowledge that workplace romances while not uncommon can turn into disasters if they don t work out. They sometimes fail because of the imbalance of power in the relationship if one person has economic control of the DEAR ABBY other. While you re talking to your therapist, this is something that should also be discussed. DEAR ABBY: Social media specifically Facebook has had an impact on families, their values and relationships. It is important to understand that, contrary to popular belief, parents and grandparents DO NOT LIVE FOREVER. Being too busy for face-to-face visits, writing a postcard or a letter, or even a simple telephone call, is not how we were brought up. To my children and grandchildren, whom I dearly love: I m sure you ll take the time to order flowers for my funeral. You may even take the day off to attend, and when you do, you will most likely shed some tears. So why can t you find the time, while I m still HERE, to visit or call? I d love to see you, and I m never too busy to make the time. HURT IN PELLA, IOWA DEAR HURT: I m printing your letter because I m sure this is a problem shared by many aging parents and grandparents. However, this is a question you should direct to your children and grandchildren, not me. If you do, you may learn there may be multiple reasons why they don t pay more attention to you among them, the pressures of work, school, child care, or the fact that they are disorganized and don t budget their time well. There is also the question of whether you are an enjoyable person to be around. Do you show an interest in what they are doing, or make them feel guilty for not doing more to entertain you? That s a surefire way to keep them away. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA BY FRANCIS DRAKE King Features Syndicate For Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2015 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Do something to discourage arguments and battles with partners and close friends, as well as bosses, parents or authority figures. In fact, do your best to keep the peace. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Avoid controversial subjects like religion, politics and racial issues, because arguments can erupt very easily today. Instead, use your focused energy to get work done. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Jealousy in romantic relationships (or even between your children) might be a problem today. Do your best to keep things cool. This is a good day for competitive sports. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You are intent on making improvements to where you live. However, discussions with a female relative, perhaps Mom, could be volatile today. Postpone these if you can. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You are mentally alert and energetic today. However, you might be verbally pushy with co-workers, which could trigger an argument. Keep your energy to yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Equipment related to your work might break down today. Something might impede money coming to you or even how you earn your money. You might break something that you own. (Ouch.) Tread carefully. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Today the Moon is in your sign; however, it is at odds with mighty Pluto. This encourages compulsive HOROSCOPE behavior. It also can trigger confrontations with others. Be cool. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Something going on behind the scenes might upset you today. You may be aware of this; you might not be. Stay calm, because high emotions could lead to poor decisions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Confrontation with a female friend or acquaintance is likely today. Don t ask anyone for help. Don t expect anything from anyone. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Relations with authority figures, especially females, will be strained today. Guilt, jealousy and manipulative actions are classic. Try to take the high road, if you can. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Don t let anyone talk you into anything today, because people have their own ulterior motives. Quite likely, their motives are not in your best interests. Think twice about an impulsive trip. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Don t be rash or impulsive with the property and wealth of others today. Maintain your course. Respect what others own. Don t try to borrow something on the sly. YOU BORN TODAY You are adaptable. You experience life fully, especially emotionally. You are a natural leader, and your happiness is not robbed by adversity. Go slowly this year. There is something important to learn. The first half of this year will seem slow, but soon, your efforts of the past six years will start to show results. Get out into nature this year.

Gary Gray s well-received film charts the formation and rise of the influential rap group. It cost just $29 million to produce. N.W.A. members Dr. Dre and Ice Cube served as producers on the film, which has Ice Cube s real son O Shea Jackson Jr. playing his father. Dr. Dre also released the companion piece Compton, his first new album in 16 years. Nick Carpou, Universal s president of domestic distribution, said they were elated with the results. Universal had previously predicted a very conservative $25 to $30 million opening. It really struck a chord with audiences. It s a story that is resonating right now, said Paul Dergarabedian, Rentrak s senior media Please see COMPTON, Page 12 From the left: Aldis Hodge as MC Ren, Neil Brown Jr. as DJ Yella, Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E, O Shea Jackson Jr. as Ice Cube and Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre in the film Straight Outta Compton.
12 12 / Monday, August 17, 2015 ENTERTAINMENT The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. Empire, One Direction win at 17th Teen Choice Awards NEW YORK (AP) The 17th Teen Choice Awards threw its full support behind the hit series Empire, honored late Furious 7 star Paul Walker and paid homage to a respected elder: Britney Spears. The two-hour teen celebration, broadcast live Sunday night, kicked off with a victory lap for the weekend box-office hit Straight Outta Compton. Ice Cube and the young stars of the N.W.A biopic, which earned an estimated $56.1 million over the weekend, welcomed the young crowd to Los Angeles Galen Center. Christopher Ludacris Bridges, the rapper and Furious 7 costar, was one of three hosts, alongside Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez and actor Josh Peck. Bridges film, one of year s biggest big-screen hits, was one of the night s top winners, winning best action movie and best actor in an action-adventure for the late Paul Walker. Paul Walker is here in spirit with us, said Vin Diesel, a star in the street racing franchise. He applauded a special, special teen in the crowd: Walker s daughter Meadow. The Teen Choice Awards spread awards across movies, music, TV, fashion, sports and digital media, celebrating the favorites from Channing Tatum to Wiz Khalifa to Stephen Curry (all winners Sunday) of one of media s most powerful demographics. As a pop star, Spears was a regular at the Teen Choice Awards, collecting its trademark trophies surfboards many times over the years, including its version of a lifetime achievement award in On Sunday, Spears, her blonde Britney Spears, winner of the choice style icon award, poses in the press room with her niece Lexi and her sons Sean and Jayden James at the Teen Choice Awards Sunday in Los Angeles.3 hair partially dyed blue and purple, was honored for being a style icon. She dedicated the award to her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, and niece Lexie, who were in the audience. The Teen Choice Awards new reigning powerhouse, One Direction, landed eight awards, bringing their lifetime total to 23. The British boy band, currently on tour, accepted the awards in a taped video. The hip-hop drama Empire won breakout TV show and provided one of the show s most memorable moments. While Jussie Smollett and Yazz performed You re So Beautiful, a song from the series, the show s Gabourey Sidibe made a surprise cameo, exuberantly dancing among the back-up dancers. Ellen DeGeneres won for best comedian. Adding a Teen Choice Award to her People s Choice Award, DeGeneres requested awards from other age groups: the elderly and babies. Several awards went to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1, including best actor in a sci-fi or fantasy for Josh Hutcherson. He reflected on the end of the franchise, with this fall s Mockingjay, Part 2, like a coming graduation. Hunger Games has been a huge part of my life for almost five years now. It s coming to an end and it s really sad, said Hutcherson. So if we want to cry together, we can do that because it breaks my heart. Compton from page 11 analyst. It was one of those records that was an important work and a very important expression of a particular viewpoint. To this day, that album has so much power. Beyond the fandom around N.W.A. and the timeliness of the themes, Universal also launched a clever marketing campaign around the film, Straight Outta Somewhere, which allows social media users to insert photos in the iconic Straight Outta Compton album cover and write in a hometown of their choosing. There have been over 5.4 million downloads to date and it trended No. 1 across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for two days in a row. We ve got the best marketers in the business and they understand their audiences, Carpou said. The good news here is it attaches to a product that we re exceedingly proud of. According to exit polls, audiences for the R-rated film were evenly divided between genders, 51 percent were under the age of 30, 46 percent were African- American and 23 percent Caucasian. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. PG- 13-rated adaptation of the 1960s television series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. debuted in third place, behind Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, with a sluggish $13.5 million. I was hoping for a little higher number, quite frankly, said Jeff Goldstein, executive vice president of domestic distribution for Warner Bros. The goal had been a modest $15 million. The period spy thriller will have an uphill battle to make up its $80 million production budget. (Director) Guy Ritchie made an original and fun movie. Eighty-six percent of our audience was over 25 and 39 percent are over 50, he said. Older audiences, we all know, don t rush out opening weekend. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. stars Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer as a pair of American and Russian agents in the fashionable Cold War-era film. Goldstein noted that they weren t able to attract a significant younger audience, who are likely not familiar with the source material. The 7 percent who did turn out gave the film a favorable A- CinemaScore, and Goldstein hopes that word-ofmouth will spread in the coming weeks. Fox s Fantastic Four plummeted to $8 million to take the fourth place spot, while The Gift took fifth with $6.5 million. But it s Universal s weekend to celebrate once more in what has become a banner year for the studio. Universal crossed the $2 billion mark domestically on Saturday four months ahead of previous record-holder Warner Bros. Straight Outta Compton is Universal s 6th film to open over $50 million in 2015 and broke the August record for an R-rated opening. If you were to create a blueprint for how to perfectly execute a box office year, they ve done it, said Dergarabedian. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. 1. Straight Outta Compton, $56.1 million 2. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, $17 million 3.

Trainwreck, $3.8 million THE NEWS IN BRIEF Johnny Depp, Gene Simmons rock together LOS ANGELES (AP) Johnny Depp didn t say a word as he stepped onto a small stage inside the Lucky Strike bowling alley. He just strapped on a guitar and started playing with the band. One song later, Gene Simmons joined in. The superstar pairing capped off a fundraising concert Sunday for MendingKids.org, an organization that provides hundreds of free corrective surgeries each year for children around the world. Besides Depp and Simmons, the event also featured a surprise reunion of rock group Extreme for a performance of their 1991 classic More Than Words. After appearances by various musicians, Depp quietly joined the house band to play Alice Cooper s School s Out. (The 52-year-old actor announced last week that he is forming a band with Cooper and guitarist Joe Perry called Hollywood Vampires that will release a self-titled album next month and donate proceeds to charity.) His hair slicked back, Depp wore jeans and an oxford shirt topped with a gray vest. He played a white electric guitar. Simmons was the last to take the stage. A supporter of MendingKids.org for several years, the 65-year-old entertainer invited anyone with $1,000 to donate to the organization to come up and sing with the band. About 10 donors took him up on the offer, including his son and daughter, and they shared the stage with Depp, Simmons and the rest of the band during the closing number, the Kiss hit Rock and Roll All Nite. After the show, Depp waved to fans and disappeared out a side door. Man charged in stabbing of actor s granddaughter NEW YORK (AP) Police have arrested a 30-yearold man in connection with the fatal stabbing of actor Morgan Freeman s step-granddaughter on a Manhattan FREEMAN street. Lamar Davenport, of New York City, was charged with second-degree murder on Monday, a day after 33- year-old Edena Hines was found lying on the street with multiple stab wounds to the chest. Police say the Davenport was in a relationship with Hines. She was found in front of her apartment building on West 162nd Street and was pronounced dead at Harlem Hospital. Freeman issued a statement saying that The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer. Hines had studied acting and was involved with teaching urban youth. She s the granddaughter of Freeman s first wife. Emile Hirsch hearing set on assault charge SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Actor Emile Hirsch was due back in a Utah court today for a hearing on assault charges stemming from a nightclub incident during the Sundance HIRSCH Film Festival. The Into the Wild star is accused of putting a female studio executive in a chokehold Jan. 25 at Tao Nightclub in Park City while in Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. He is charged with felony aggravated assault and intoxication. A judge set the afternoon preliminary hearing in Park City so prosecutors could lay out their evidence against Hirsch, or for the two sides to present a plea deal if one has been reached. Public records show the victim described the incident as being insanely painful and absolutely terrifying. Star Wars themed land planned at Disney parks ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Disney theme parks have their sights on a galaxy far, far away. Star Wars is getting its own themed lands at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and Disneyland in Anaheim, California, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced at the D23 Fan Expo on Saturday. We are creating a jaw-dropping new world, Iger said. The 14-acre attractions represent the largest single themed land expansion ever. Iger also said that the Star Wars land will be every bit as thrilling as the films and will include attractions and entertainment in an area populated by aliens and droids. There will also be a Cantina and the chance to take control of the Millennium Falcon one of the signature attractions. One adventure also promises to put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
13 The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. YOUR WORLD Monday, August 17, 2015 / 13 Plane with $470G in gov t cash crashes JAYAPURA, Indonesia (AP) A passenger plane with 54 people on board that crashed in the mountains of eastern Indonesia was carrying nearly half a million dollars in government cash for poor families to help offset a spike in fuel prices, a local postal official said today. Smoldering wreckage of the Trigana Air Service turboprop plane was spotted from the air this morning in a rugged area of the easternmost province of Papua, rescue officials said. There was no immediate word if there were any survivors from Sunday s crash, which happened in bad weather. Four postal workers aboard the plane were escorting four bags of cash totaling $468,750 in government fuel aid money, Haryono, the head of the post office in Jayapura, the provincial capital, said. The twin turboprop plane was flying from Jayapura to the city of Oksibil when it lost contact. Transportation Ministry spokesman Julius Barata said there was no indication that the pilot had made a distress call. Bond remembered for civil rights work ATLANTA (AP) Through the tough struggles of the civil rights movement, Julian Bond always kept his sense of THE NEWS IN BRIEF humor, and it was his steady demeanor that helped him persist despite the inevitable difficulties involved, his wife said. Bond never took his eyes off the prize and that was always racial equality, Pamela Horowitz said Sunday. Bond died Saturday in Fort Walton Beach, Fla., Horowitz said. He was 75. She did not yet know the exact cause of death, but that her husband had circulatory problems. Bond s life traced the arc of RIVETING RECORD Agnes Moore, 95, and Phyllis Gould, 93, from left, who both worked as welders in the Richmond shipyards during WWII, chat as they wait to join with hundreds of other women dressed as "Rosie the Riveter" in an attempt to set a new Guinness World Record at Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park in Richmond, Calif., Saturday. The current record was set last year when 776 Rosie and Rosie lookalikes gathered at the Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti, Mich. the civil rights movement, from his efforts as a militant young man to start a student protest group, through a long career in politics and his leadership of the NAACP almost four decades later. Year after year, the calm, telegenic Bond was one of the nation s most poetic voices for equality, inspiring fellow activists with his words in the 1960s and sharing the movement s vision with succeeding generations as a speaker and academic. US Army skydiver dies from air show injuries CHICAGO (AP) Members of a U.S. Army skydiving team will return to their base where they will have access to counseling after a parachutist from their unit died from injuries suffered during a stunt at the Chicago Air & Water Show, a spokeswoman for the group said. The Golden Knights demonstration team has been put on a safety stand down after the death of Sgt. 1st Class Corey Hood, spokeswoman Donna Dixon said Sunday. The group will head to Fort Bragg in North Carolina, where they can meet with chaplains as the Army works to ensure everyone is mentally and physically fit to continue with the show season, she said. The team s performance schedule could be affected. Hood, of Cincinnati, Ohio, was pronounced dead Sunday afternoon at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, according to the Cook County medical examiner s office. A day earlier, he collided in midair with a member of the Navy s precision skydiving team during the event along Chicago s Lake Michigan shoreline. Hood, 32, served five tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan and had earned numerous awards, including two Bronze Stars. He had logged more than 200 free fall jumps and 75 military static line jumps during his career, according to his Army biography. He is survived by his wife, Lyndsay. The Knights are a very close knit team and the military skydiving community is equally close; we will support Corey s family and each other during this difficult time, Col. Matthew Weinrich, commander of the U.S. Army Parachute Team, said in a statement. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement late Sunday that he and his wife were deeply saddened by Hood s death. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and the entire Golden Knights community, Emanuel said, calling Hood an American hero. The Army Golden Knights and Navy Leap Frogs parachute teams were performing what is known as a bomb burst Saturday when the collision occurred, Dixon said. During the stunt, parachutists fall with red smoke trailing from packs and then separate, creating a colorful visual in the sky. Hood collided with the Navy skydiver and was knocked unconscious, which resulted in an uncontrolled offsite landing, Dixon said in a statement. Spectator Heather Mendenhall told the Chicago Tribune she was watching the show from a rooftop and saw Hood strike the roof of a high-rise building next door with his feet and then fall his parachute trailing behind him. His legs caught the tip of the roof, and then he fell over. It was horrible, she told the newspaper.

20 20 / Monday, August 17, 2015 SPORTS The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. Cincinnati Bengals running back Jeremy Hill, center, runs through the New York Giants defense in the first half of an NFL preseason football game in Cincinnati, Friday. Giants defense struggles in preseason opening contest EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Steve Spagnuolo s return as the New York Giants defensive coordinator was marked by tentative play, a lot of yards surrendered and way too many injuries. Other than the injuries, the group s play in a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals probably should have been expected. It s a new system and the players struggled, giving up 432 yards and 29 first downs. Linebacker Jameel McClain, who didn t make the trip to Cincinnati because of a neck injury, did a lot of yelling at his TV watching the defense play Friday, much to the chagrin of his finance. I m an animated guy, so me screaming at the TV for a preseason game, she didn t love that too much, McClain said. Cornerback Prince Amukamara, who didn t play because of a groin injury, said the performance was surprising. I felt like on the defensive side we got punched in the mouth pretty early, Amukamara said Sunday as the Giants returned to work. Cincinnati had a great (opening) drive, but then after watching the film, there was some good stuff and some bad stuff. The injuries took a toll on the secondary with rookie safeties Mykkele Thompson (Achilles tendon) and Landon Collins (knee), and cornerbacks Trumaine McBride (hamstring) and Jayron Hosley (concussion) among the injured. Thompson is going to miss the season. Cornerback Chykie Brown (knee) and safety Nat Berhe (calf) were injured in training camp and didn t make the trip to Cincinnati. Collins was listed day to day on Sunday as was Amukamara, Berhe and McBride. Brown will be out at least a week, and Hosley is being evaluated for a concussion. It s created a lack of depth, particularly at safety, which was a very inexperienced group coming to training camp. On Sunday, the Giants signed veteran free agent safety Brandon Meriweather, a former first-round draft choice and two-time Pro Bowler. He started 10 games for Washington last season and finished with 53 tackles, a career-high three sacks, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. He practiced on a limited basis Sunday. To make room on the roster, Bowles, Jets not happy with Smith FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) The New York Jets flagged Geno Smith for a false start. Smith was photographed by the New York Post playing catch with a friend outside his New Jersey apartment Saturday, two days after the quarterback had jaw surgery. Smith had plates and screws inserted into the jaw, which was broken by a punch from thenteammate Ikemefuna Enemkpali on Tuesday. The newspaper published a front-page image of Smith, his face swollen with black bandages on each cheek. He shouldn t be doing it right now, coach Todd Bowles said Sunday. We handled that internally. We had that discussion. they waived kicker Chris Boswell. Thompson was also placed on injured reserve. Jeromy Miles is the current leader of the safety group that now includes Meriweather, Cooper Taylor, Berhe and Bennett Jackson, who was converted from cornerback this season. He said Spagnuolo s defense is complex. We have a long way to go, said Miles, who worked with the first team safeties along with Jackson. That s the cool thing about the first preseason game. It s a tuneup and you get to see where you stack up against other competition. The Cincinnati Bengals are a great team and a great organization, and we have a chance to keep developing Taylor, who had an interception in Sunday s practice, said injuries are part of the game and everyone has to step up and fill the void. He said the biggest problem against Cincinnati was mistakes on the little details such as alignments techniques. Jackson, who is doubling as a nickel back, said there were times when defenders seemed to hesitate instead of injured playing fast. PGA, from page 24 He bit his lower lip, swatted his caddie on the arm, knowing his work was almost done. The two-putt birdie put him at 20-under par, and two closing pars gave him the record to par in majors, breaking by one shot the 19 under of Tiger Woods at St. Andrews in the 2000 British Open. Day finished at 20-under 268, not knowing until it was over that it was a record. What really mattered was that shiny Wanamaker Trophy at his side. He shared the 54-hole lead at the U.S. Open and the British Open and had to watch someone else celebrate. Not being able to finish, it would have been tough for me mentally to really kind of come back from that, Day said. Even though I feel like I m a positive person, I think that in the back of my mind something would have triggered and I would have gone, Maybe I can t really finish it off. It felt like I was mentally and physically grinding it out as hard as I could, he said. I wasn t going to stop fighting until it over. Spieth gave it his best shot, but even the Masters and U.S. Open champion could tell what he was up against the way the 27-yearold Australian powered one drive after another and didn t let anyone closer than the two-shot lead with which he started the final round. He played like he d won seven or eight majors, Spieth said. He took it back. He wailed it. It was a stripe show. Spieth has the greatest consolation possible. With his runner-up finish, he replaced Rory McIlroy at No. 1 in the world. This is as easy a loss as I ve ever had because I felt that I not only couldn t do much about it as the round went on, I also accomplished one of my lifelong goals in the sport of golf. That will never be taken away from me now. I ll always be a No. 1 player in the world. Spieth set a record of his own. By closing with a 68, he set a record by playing the four majors Litke, from page 24 standing on the 18th green at Whistling Straits. Moments earlier, right after he first wrapped his hands around the trophy with tears streaming down his face, Day struggled to repay the debt. I lose my dad at 12 and then meet Colin, and to have him walk the journey with me, have him walk up the 18th hole with me, was just a special, special experience I could never forget. It s just, he paused, composing himself once more, an amazing feeling I have. The caddie code is often boiled down to just three things: Show up, keep up and shut up. But Swatton and Day have written their own, basing it on trust and mutual respect the still-headstrong kid, now 27, and the wizened old tutor who remains the only swing coach and caddie he s employed to this day. What sold Swatton on the bargain was their first argument soon after they met, when he tried to persuade the 12-year-old Day to join the group in a drill and the kid wanted to play the par-3 course nearby. Day showed up soon afterward at the practice ground and apologized, then won Swatton over by proving his sincerity time and again. Jason Day, of Australia, cries after winning the PGA Championship golf tournament Sunday, at Whistling Straits in Haven, Wis. in 54-under par, breaking by one the mark that Woods set in The difference is that Woods won two majors by a combined 23 shots. That also speaks to the depth of golf in this generation, and Day is the latest example. He moved to No. 3 in the world, meaning the top three in the world are all under 27 and have combined to win five of the last six majors. As long as I am healthy, I feel like I m going to be there a long time, Day said. I still want to accomplish that No. 1 goal of mine, which is to be the best player in the world. I m still motivated and still very hungry for that, even after this win. Branden Grace of South Africa had another mistake on the back nine in a major that cost him. Grace was tied for the lead at the U.S. Open when he hit his tee shot on the railroad tracks and out-of-bounds at Chambers Bay. This time, he was two shots behind when he went long of the Yeah, we had that little disagreement initially, but from that day forward, we were really good team, Swatton said. After that, if you gave him something to do, he would just do it. He wouldn t question why, he wouldn t just do it for a day or two, and move onto something else. It was just, I ll do it until you tell me to stop and just tell me what you want me to do. There were plenty of ups and downs in between, Swatton trying to toe the motivational line between personal and professional as Day kept coming so close in recent years but ultimately falling just short in one major after another. There was the 2013 Masters, then both the U.S. and British Opens this summer. Day s performance at the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay in June may have been their toughest moment together. A bout of vertigo caused Day to collapse on the course, then get back up still wobbling and shaky. Unsure whether he could play the next round, Day ended the round tied for the lead before slipping back on the final day into a tie for ninth. I thought it was a heart attack, Swatton said. 10th green and made double bogey. He closed with a 69 and finished third, five shots behind. Justin Rose got within two shots until making a double bogey for the third straight day. He closed with a 70 and finished fourth. Day faced enormous pressure of having a lead for the first time going into the final round, trying to avoid becoming the first player since the PGA Championship went to stroke play in 1958 to have at least a share of the 54- hole lead in three straight majors without winning. It sure didn t show, even if he felt it every step of the way. I knew today was going to be tough, but I didn t realize how tough it was going to be, Day said. I learned a lot about myself, being able to finish the way I did. The experiences that I ve had in the past with previous major finishes has definitely helped me prepare myself for a moment like this. Normally, he would give me some warning or indication that he was struggling, so that was really alarming. Despite plenty of drama as Day battled Jordan Spieth down the stretch, Sunday was a comparative walk in the park. Swatton, who wears the hats of caddie, coach and sometimes-corner man, found himself propping up his fighter s confidence only a few times notably after a chunked chip at nine, and then after an approach shot at 16. In the fairway there, after some consultation and with Spieth in a greenside bunker facing a tough escape, Day and Swatton settled on a 4-iron the player smacked 232 yards to the back of the green to set up an eagle try. Then Day turned and playfully punched Swatton in the shoulder. What s rubbed off on me the most, Day said afterward, is that he s always kind of questioning, OK, is this right? Is this wrong? Asking questions to the right people. To really be able to be open to learning and growing as a player and as a person, if you don t do that, you stop. And that s the biggest thing that I ve learned off of him, Day concluded, to really understand and listen.
