A PORT JACKSON MEDIA PUBLICATION 75 CENTS A colossal waste County rips connector route study By JOHN PURCELL Recorder News Staff FONDA Montgomery County Executive Matthew Ossenfort and District 4 Legislator Ryan Weitz released a joint statement Monday outlining their opposition to the potential routes for a proposed connector highway to Fulton County. The statement was released following a Montgomery County Business Development Center staff review of the draft Fonda Connector Feasibility Study, which Fulton County officials released Aug. 5. Ossenfort and Weitz said the project would have a a profound negative impact on town of Mohawk residents and businesses in downtown Fonda. The pair also said the project would be a colossal waste of political capital and conclusions reached in the feasibility study seemed contrived and predetermined. After analyzing the positive and negative impacts of the project, together with the significant costs associated with even the least costly alternative, it quickly became clear to us that the disadvantages far outweigh its benefit, the joint letter said. The feasibility study has significant technical weaknesses and utilizes certain underlying (and we believe unsupportable) assumptions regarding positive economic impact. Fulton County Planning Department Director James Mraz declined to comment on the letter this morning, because he had not read it yet and was not aware it had been released. A public information meeting on the study will be held Wednesday at 6 in Fulton-Montgomery Community College s theater, which will include a Please see COUNTY, Page 5 Inside Comics Classifieds Happenings Lottery numbers Obituaries Opinion Sports TV listings Your world Some sun Wednesday.

Bacon Elementary School in Amsterdam is a small opening and a hidden trail that disappears into the trees. For years, the trail, now known as Sassafras Trail, has been overgrown and only some of the locals knew about it. However this summer, the path has been cleared, an entrance marker has been installed, and many more people can enjoy this part of the city, thanks to local Boy Scout Alexander Brittain. Brittain, who is a member of Boy Scout Troop 48, is working toward his Eagle Scout status, the highest rank a scout can achieve. Alex Cooper/Recorder staff ABOVE and BELOW: Views of the Great Sacandaga Lake from the beach at the Sacandaga Boat Club. Lake story going to great depths By WINNIE BLACKWOOD For The Recorder A group of local historians and Great Sacandaga Lake aficionados have taken it upon themselves to ensure the stories of those affected by the creation of the manmade body of water have a chance to be heard and remembered. A documentary involving members of the Great Sacandaga Lake Advisory Council, Great Sacandaga Lake Advisory Board Chairman Henry Hughes, and historians from both Fulton and Saratoga counties, as well as local municipalities, is presently in the works. Saratoga County Nicole Antonucci/Recorder staff Boy Scout Alexander Brittain stands on the handmade bridge he built to provide better access along the Sassafras Trail Monday. Director of Planning Jason Kemper is also involved in the project. According to Fulton County Historian Samantha Hall-Saladino, who came in after the documentary process started, the film will focus on the first 50 years of the 20th century. This time frame will include the before and after of the lake s formation. We want to tell the story of the people who where there. Not so much the technical way the damn was created and the reservoir was created, but more of the human side of the story, Hall-Saladino said. Please see LAKE, Page 5 As part of that climb, he has to prove he can lead a team to complete a task that has to get done. Yet, Brittain didn t want to build something that would later be ignored or forgotten. He wanted it to mean something. I have been going here since I was a kid, Brittain said, pointing to the park. I have talked to friends about coming down here on the trail and they would just say, What are you talking about? The point of the project is to say that there is a trail here and that you can walk on it. It was about making it more accessible to people. On Monday, Brittain showed off his project during a tour with Mayor Ann Thane. It started at Please see SCOUT, Page 4

The tool used for this review was redesigned earlier this year. Fulmont Executive Director Denis Wilson was a member of the committee that assisted the NYS Department of State in the development of this tool. In its final report dated July 31, the Department of State found that Fulmont met 58 of 58 national organizational standards, and 219 of 220 applicable indicators of excellence established by the Department of State, for an aggregate total of 99.8 percent compliance. At that time, it was determined that there were no significant findings or deficiencies. The review was composed of different sections or standards meant to analyze every facet of the agency: The agency demonstrates its ability to use consumer input and involvement in all phases of planning and implementing programs and services. The agency partners with other similar organizations within the community to share resources and ideas. A community needs assessment is conducted every three years and contains demographic data, various community characteristics, and key issues. The Board of Directors and senior managers are thoroughly trained and skilled at maintaining the highest standards for the agency, including having appropriate plans in place, meeting all requirements of the Community Services Block Grant Act, and updating all policies and procedures to ensure continuous compliance.

Melissa Schaufelberg, Fulmont Board of Directors chairperson, said she is extremely pleased with the overall outcome of the review, and that it s a product of the excellent job that the board is doing in meeting the state and federal expectations regarding board governance and oversight. She said the board is structured in compliance with the Community Services Block Grant, the bylaws conform to the newly enacted NYS Non- Profit Revitalization Act, the agency enforces a strong conflict of interest policy, and all board members are trained in their roles and responsibilities, and they each receive programmatic reports monthly in order to keep abreast of agency accomplishments and outcomes. I am very proud of the work of Fulmont s Board of Directors, and I recognize the time, dedication, and creativity each member gives to this wonderful organization, Schaufelberg said. Wilson indicated that Fulmont and one other community action agency were chosen as pilot agencies to test the new review process due to the excellent standing they both hold with the Department of State. He commented that he is equally pleased and proud of the results, which are a reflection of agency operations, including providing services to consumers, record keeping, financial operations, planning, and community partners, as well as relationships with all funding sources, particularly the NYS Department of State, Division of Community Services. Gathering all of the documentation in preparation for this review was an exhaustive process, and I want to thank all staff involved, Wilson said. The bottom line is that a high ranking score of this nature is a testament to the hard work and dedication that all Fulmont employees bring to their jobs on a daily basis and an indicator that Fulmont is effectively and efficiently utilizing federal funds granted in order to achieve its mission. social event.

4 4 / Tuesday, August 18, 2015 LOCAL The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. Scout from page 1 the entrance where the scout built a sign to mark the opening and created a trail map to show people where they can walk. As he ventured along the trail, he explained how months before the path was overgrown with vegetation and littered with garbage, which he had to clear before he could proceed. Along the way he pointed to specific trees where he installed a trail marker. You have to be able to stand at one marker and see the other marker, he said. The paint is reflective so people can see it at night and they won t lose their way. Venturing into the lower part of the park, Brittain stopped at the creek where people usually cross by stepping on the stones. Now a new wooden bridge provides easier access. The bridge, which was approved by the city engineer, was hand built with help, using logs that were found throughout the woods. Most of the creek is low but this is the section where it gets high during the spring, Brittain said. For six months, Brittain sat down to design the project and then he had to get the necessary approvals by officials. That meant, sitting down for an interview with the four leaders with the district of the Boy Scouts. I was sitting on the outside and I could hear bits and pieces, Brittain s mother Laura said. All I could think was that I handed him to the wolves. He didn t say anything right away when he came out but later he told me that he was approved. Then Brittain had to raise the funds to cover his budget. He also had to ensure his crew had food, water and other amenities while they were working. He even had to get insurance. It s like a business, Laura said. He had to put a lot of work into it. Brittain said there are no words to describe how he felt when he saw the trail complete. Within a few hours after completing the project earlier this month, Brittain said he returned to the trail to take some photos with his mother and saw people already using the trail the right way. We pulled up and there was a family a mom, dad and a daughter who took a picture in front of the sign. Then they started walking down the trail and the dad was pointing out the trail markers to the daughter, Brittain said. To go through months and months of work, carry it out, and then see people go and enjoy that... it just feels great.

The driver sustained minor injuries and was treated at St. Mary s Hospital.

Jenrette reportedly told troopers he was traveling to a Jason Aldean concert in Buffalo to sell shirts. He eventually admitted to troopers the shirts were counterfeit, according to police, which displayed trademarks of Jason Aldean. There were reportedly several hundred shirts. Police arrested Jenrette and charged him with second-degree trademark counterfeiting, a felony. He was arraigned in Amsterdam Town Court and remanded to Montgomery County jail in lieu of $20,000 cash or $40,000. He is scheduled to reappear in court at a later date. Fulton County Sheriff s Office Robert E. Coadney, 17, of Ravena, and Abigail R. Kolensikov, 18, of 16 Curtain Ave., Mayfield, were arrested Monday, Aug. 10, and both charged with fourth-degree grand larceny. The pair allegedly stole a vehicle from a home in the town of Mayfield and were found in the parking lot at Johnstown High School after the vehicle became disabled, according to a report. Coadney and Kolensikov were arraigned in Mayfield town court and remanded to Fulton County jail with bail set at $2,000 cash or $4,000 bond. Both were scheduled to appear in Mayfield town court at a later date. Harry D. Flansburg Jr., 22, was arrested Monday, Aug. 10, and charged with criminal mischief, petit larceny and trespassing. Flansburg allegedly entered and remained unlawfully on another person s property in the town of Mayfield, according to a report. Deputies said while Flansburg was on the property he damaged a security camera and stole a weed eater. He was issued a ticket to appear in Mayfield town court at a later date. Daniel C. Kozlowski, 19, of 1795 Route 107, lot 49, Perth, was arrested at 10:25 a.m. Thursday and charged with fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property. Kozlowski allegedly possessed stolen property and sold it, according to a report. He was issued a ticket to appear in Perth Town Court at a later date. Lake from page 1 The history of the lake needs to be shared because many do not know its back story or that the Great Sacandaga was once a river, according to Lauren Roberts, Saratoga County historian, who also is working on the film. We feel that it s been a long time since it happened, so a lot of people that frequent the area really don t know the story, she said. There s many people that don t know even that it s a reservoir, that it was once a river, and that it s now a man-made lake; and the reasons behind building the lake. The lake is rich with history dating back to the Iroquois Alliance to its title now in the Adirondack state park as a recreational spot for residents and tourists, expanding into Fulton and Saratoga counties, and part of Hamilton County. Several factors and $12 million went into the creation of the reservoir in the 1920s by the Hudson River-Black River Regulating District, and its role as a way to control flooding in the Hudson River. According to Hall-Saladino, areas from Glens Falls to Albany were being affected by flooding. During the summer, the lack of water flow a main power source for many industries led to a financial blow, with the mills shutting down because of it. A typhoid outbreak and other health hazards ensued, Roberts explained. It was important for the state to be able to do this, she said. While the flooding was more easily controlled by the new reservoir, many local residents lost their homes and their livelihoods. Homes, schools and churches were burned to the ground, a few houses were given the chance to relocate, but many people were forced to move. Around 4,000 graves were also relocated, according to the Saratoga County Historian. While it helped a lot of people down stream, Robert said, it certainly was pretty sad for the people who had to move, so we thought the story was worth being told. It was a loss of way of life for a lot of people, but it created a new way of life in the area, Hall-Saladino said. The early stages of production this summer involved meetings between the group and a lot of discussion on what the product should be like. Locating historic information and conducting basic research were among the first steps taken. Hall-Saladino said a survey was sent out to historians, libraries and other local municipalities to create an index pertaining to the time frame. Another step in the process is obtaining an oral history of the Sacandaga River. Finding people who are still around from those days long past is part of the challenge. Personal experiences and interviews will be a component of the film, according to Roberts and Hall-Saladino. Roberts said there have been interviews with several documentarians, as wells as talks with local filmmakers. Original and still footage will also be used dating back to the 1920s and 30s, while some will be provided by the Hudson River-Black River Regulating District. Depending on the production schedule, Roberts said she would like to see the release of the documentary within the next year or two. County from page 1 presentation from MJ Engineering and Land Surveying on the draft Fonda Connector Feasibility Study. Following the presentation there will be a period for public comments, along with an opportunity to submit written comments. Ossenfort and Weitz argued any of the proposed alternative routes would forever change the character of the town of Mohawk negatively and there is not enough compelling need to justify taking property through eminent domain to build the connector. Some of the properties falling on the proposed routes have been used as farmland for generations. There is a lot to be said about local sovereignty when it comes to decisions that affect a single town this dramatically, Ossenfort and Weitz said in the letter. The pair also faulted the study for not addressing the negative economic impacts on businesses in the village of Fonda and town of Mohawk, with existing areas in some potential routes completely bypassing commercial areas. They argued the costly proposal, ranging from $62.7 million to $142 million once construction begins in 2023, is not a priority for the federal or state government to fund. The federal government and the state Department of Transportation have generally refrained from creating new lane miles that is, new roads and instead have focused upon investment in existing transportation infrastructure, read the letter. It would be more beneficial to look into less costly ways of improving the existing route. County officials scoffed at the notion that any of the potential routes would be feasible and suggested improvements to the existing corridor should have been reviewed during the study. We recognize that the existing traffic situation along Route 5 and Route 30 is not optimal creating noxious influences upon downtown Fonda and creating some delay for trucks traveling to the Johnstown Industrial Park and other nearby destinations, but at the same time, it is not dysfunctional, read the letter. Our key to success is prioritizing the potential resources we have and putting them to best use. As such, there is simply no way that these circumstances compel us to build this road. The western most route, Alternative B, would use both the existing route from Thruway Exit 28 and a new connector road. It would travel west on Riverside Drive and north on Bridge Street, utilizing the existing bridge. The new connector roadway would began at the intersection of Bridge Street and Route 5 then generally travel northwest to Route 30A at the border of Montgomery and Fulton counties. Alternative B is the shortest of the three proposed, totaling 3.3 miles, and is the only one not requiring the construction of a new bridge over the Mohawk River. It s also the least expensive. While Fulton County officials have previously denied any of the three routes is a favorite, some Montgomery County officials have said the lowest cost option would likely emerge as the final proposal. Alternative E1 begins at Thruway Exit 28 and goes east on Riverside Drive for approximately.33 miles, and would then progress north on a new bridge constructed over the Mohawk River, CSX Railroad lines, and Route 5. The connector road would continue north through wooded areas and open fields, intersecting Old Trail Road at-grade approximately.3 miles east of Switzer Hill Road, to a point just northeast of Cable Road where the connector road turns west until it intersects Johnstown Industrial Park at the intersection of Opportunity Drive and Route 30A (Old Plank Road), according to the study. The last route identified as being potentially feasible is Alternative F1, similar to Alternative E1, goes east on Riverside Drive and would then progress north on a newly constructed bridge. This connector road would turn west then north to intersect Old Trail Road atgrade approximately.3 miles east of Switzer Hill Road. The roadway would progress north to a point just northeast of Cable Road where the connector road turns west until it intersects Johnstown Industrial Park at the intersection of Opportunity Drive and Route 30A (Old Plank Road), according to the study. The draft study totals more than 150 pages and including its appendices, the study package grows to nearly 950 pages. Documentation can be viewed or downloaded from the study s website at fondaconnector.com.

8 8 / Tuesday, August 18, 2015 OPINION The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The connector road study To the editor: Recent news of the Fonda connector study and the announcement of the meeting this Wednesday the 19th at FMCC have been on radio station WENT 1340 AM. These announcements have stated repeatedly that the study s goal is to have heavy truck traffic bypass the village of Fonda. This news must sound good to the Fonda village residents. However, they are being misled as Alternative Route B still brings all the trucks into the village. Instead of going down Main Street with their large diesel engines at an idle, they will be climbing up a very steep grade coming off the railroad bridge with their throttles wide open and without a doubt belching even more diesel smoke filled exhaust into the village. Additionally, coming down the grade they will be forced to use their engine Jake brakes, which makes a very loud obnoxious sound. Alternate Route B is ill-conceived and should not have been even considered from the start as it does not accomplish what should be the goal of the study. Route B will bring the village residents the equivalent noise and air pollution of the Saturday night stock car races to enjoy 24 hours a day, seven days a week. At a recent public meeting at the Mohawk town hall, I believe I heard Mayor Peeler state that 14,000 trucks a day go through the village of Fonda. I am sure he misspoke and he should have been given an opportunity to correct himself. The study determined a number that was nearer 2,000. However, one should question the accuracy of this traffic data, as compiled by MJ Engineering. The study states that its traffic count was done on May 14, 2014, a Wednesday, from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 to 6 that day only. Done at peak times on a work day, the study then projects the numbers over the whole year and arrives at annual daily average. This method is flawed and dramatically skews the study by overstating the number of cars and trucks that supposedly go through Fonda. If route Alternative B is selected and built, factoring in Fulton County s hoped for increased development, this could possibly double the number of trucks entering the village of Fonda. Do a few thousand more trucks a day in the village sound good to the residents? If not, call your representatives now. And tell them that the Fonda connector study Route B is not acceptable. Fonda Mayor Bill Peeler is at (518) , ext 26; town of Mohawk representative Ryan Weitz, (518) ; Montgomery County Executive Matt Ossenfort, (518) CLARK D. SUBIK, Fonda An ounce of prevention To the editor: I have to agree with comments made in the Wednesday, Aug. 12, Recorder, City roads: Patch and go, about having to start doing some of our city s projects in house. Whether we have enough money or not, I believe some of the projects we have in this city could have been prevented if we had enough manpower for proper maintenance. How many times have you seen yellow horses surrounding a work project that have been left there for weeks or months before the city gets back to it? I m not blaming DPW, but if there s not enough manpower, how will the work get done? A perfect example is a problem the city has on Kreisel Terrace hill. Last year I called DPW about some potholes and drainage issues on the hill that were undermining the pavement. DPW came and put the appropriate yellow horses around the problem and left it for the remainder of the summer, and of course the problem got worse. The street was closed off for the winter without any work being done. If you re not familiar with Kreisel Terrace, it s a large hill off Vrooman Avenue that gets closed off in the winter because it s so steep. This spring when I called to find out when Kreisel hill would reopen I was told the city engineer deemed the road in too bad of shape to repoen. Perhaps if the proper maintenance had been in place the year before, the street would not have been neglected and put in such disrepair. Now the city has to completely redo the hill. In the meantime our neighborhood is a two-block dead-end street with one way in and one way out. It s hard enough in the winter dealing with this situation, and now we have to possibly wait at least another year or longer before the hill is fixed. There s an old saying business: It takes money to make money. Perhaps if we hired more DPW workers, their payroll expense would offset and prevent multi-million dollar repairs that need to be outsourced and funded by bonds, that could have been prevented if we had proper maintenance. ED DISCENZA, Amsterdam COMMENTARY Urban gardens By GEORGE BALL The Philadelphia Inquirer One of the great marvels of our time is the rapid emergence of urban gardening. A casual stroll about a major city soon reveals signs that the urban jungle is morphing into a luxuriant urban Eden. Gardens, great and small, sprout on urban rooftops, root in repurposed warehouses, climb up walls, bloom on apartment terraces, and sunbathe on fire escapes. Thriving gardens transform once-desolate city lots and help unite communities. Pansies eagerly wave to passersby from window-boxes. Farmers markets across the city are abuzz with kale connoisseurs, zucchini zealots, and fennel fanciers. To my great surprise, vegetables are suddenly hip, and deservingly so. As a longtime gardening evangelist, color me thrilled. Since the 1960s, gardening prophets have predicted the coming green explosion in the metropolis. This coming season, we seed folk told ourselves each year, urban baby boomers will morph into baby bloomers. The transformative moment kept not arriving. The future of gardening in American cities, we japed, was a sleeping green giant no one could wake up: an urban creation myth. It was like waiting for Godot, if Godot were a garden. Then, 10 or 15 years ago, began a small trickle: a roof garden here, a hydroponic warehouse there, some victory gardens springing up in disused lots, and neighborhood parks. We took notice. Orders flowed in from urbanites for herbs, vegetables, fruits and flowers, as if from decades of pent-up demand. Why not? The garden provides a perfect antidote for urban dwelling: lighting up the city with color, fragrance, flavor, shapely buds and fruits. In cities where it is hard to see the buildings for the real estate, the garden surprises in new ways, providing a sanctum immune to hype, spokesmodels or clickbait. That buzz? Visiting bees. In the warp-speed city, gardening is as soothingly lowtech and slow motion as it gets. Already dark clouds are gathering over the new urban garden, still in its first bloom. They aren t clouds, in fact, but the shadows cast by predatory developers whose focus is the bottom line, not the bumper crop of swiss chard, who associate chlorophyll with currency, not foliage, and whose ever-higher residential towers siphon sunlight from the city s gardens. The jumped-up rents of our nation s cities may tarnish urban gardening s golden age. Urban gardening is now in a space race with luxury condos, a green David up against Goliath market forces. The money, if history is our guide, is, unfortunately, on the developers. It is time to reconsider the urban garden. Fact is, the city is a less than ideal setting for gardens. Besides land costs, complications include logistics (where to produce compost, for instance), deficits of sunlight and water, city lots with tainted soil, and the ongoing flight of the budding upwardly mobile from city neighborhoods to suburbs. However, for gardening education the most strategically valuable of all garden trends the city is sublime. Huge, eager audiences, exquisite exemplary plots at both community and city botanical gardens, and a cornucopia of well-educated horticulturalists and gardeners to teach the beginners. Indeed, nearly every urban public garden is expanding not its gardens, but its education and outreach programs. So many non-gardeners, so much time. Perhaps the poster children of endangered urban species, such as Detroit, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Chicago hold promise as future models of both the re-education and renaturalization of a true nation of gardeners. Where have you gone, Aldo Leopold? Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you. GEORGE BALL is chairman of seed company W. Atlee Burpee and Co. and past president of the American Horticultural Society. DOONESBURY CLASSICS ~ 1984 / By Gary Trudeau
9 The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. YOUR WORLD Tuesday, August 18, 2015 / 9 THE NEWS IN BRIEF Indonesian official says plane is totally destroyed JAYAPURA, Indonesia (AP) An Indonesian passenger plane that went missing two days ago was destroyed when it slammed into a mountain, killing all 54 people on board, the country s top rescue official said. More than 70 rescuers reached the crash site only today after being hindered by rugged, forested terrain and bad weather. The flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder, the plane s black boxes, were found in good condition, said Henry Bambang Soelistyo, the National Search and Rescue Agency chief. The data they contain could help explain what caused the crash. The plane was totally destroyed and all the bodies were burned and difficult to identify, Soelistyo told. He said all 54 bodies had been recovered and will be taken to Jayapura, the capital of Papua province, so they can be identified. Probe of Clinton s server could find more than just s WASHINGTON (AP) Now that federal investigators have Hillary Rodham Clinton s homebrew server, they could examine files on her machine that would be more revelatory than the s themselves. Clinton last week handed over to the FBI her private server, which she used to send, receive and store s during her four years while secretary of state. The bureau is holding the machine in protective custody after the intelligence community s inspector general raised concerns that classified information had traversed the system. Questions about her use of the server have shadowed her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Clinton again this weekend repeated a carefully constructed defense of her actions, in that she did not send or receive s marked classified at the time. But her s show some messages she wrote were censored by the State Department for national security reasons before they were publicly released. The government blacked out those messages under a provision of the Freedom of Information Act intended to protect material that had been deemed and properly classified for purposes of national defense or foreign policy. What hasn t been released: data that could show how secure her system was, whether someone tried to break in, and who else had accounts on her system. A lawyer for Platte River Networks, a Colorado-based technology services company that began managing the Clinton server in 2013, said the server was provided to the FBI last week. Militant seeks to ban film about spy raid targeting him ISLAMABAD (AP) A Pakistani militant leader with a $10 million bounty on his head over his alleged involvement in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks now has a new target: a Bollywood film that imagines him being assassinated. In a twist worthy of a movie itself, a lawyer for Hafiz Mohammed Saeed wants to ban the upcoming film Phantom from being shown, arguing it is Indian propaganda meant to hurt the image of Pakistan abroad. But beyond the choreographed mayhem of the film s imagined, perfectly coiffed Indian spies, the movie s premise lays bare the anger still felt over the Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people, including six Americans, as well as tensions between the two nucleararmed rival countries. I am surprised and amused that a wanted terrorist has gone and filed a petition, film director Kabir Khan recently said, according to the Press Trust of India news agency. He is the one who is spreading hate agenda and he is opposing the film, without even knowing what the film is about. Thunderstorms complicate recovery efforts in China TIANJIN, China (AP) Thunderstorms today complicated recovery efforts from last week s massive explosions at a warehouse in China s Tianjin port that killed at least 114 people, left 57 missing and exposed dangerous chemicals including some that could become flammable on contact with water. Experts have expressed concern that rain could spread some of the vast quantities of hazardous material at the site or set off chemical reactions sparking further explosions. Rain began falling mid-morning, but there was no immediate word of new blasts. The storms began shortly after residents, firefighters, police, medical staff and officials held a moment of silence marking the sixth day since the disaster, the first observance in the 49-day traditional Chinese mourning cycle. Sirens wailed and car and boat horns blared while assembled groups bowed in respect for the dead. Gay couples win, but still lose after Kentucky judge s order MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) Two same-sex couples in this small eastern Kentucky county got everything they wanted in a ruling from a federal judge Monday, except for one sentence. U.S. District Judge David Bunning denied Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis request to delay his ruling from last week ordering her to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples. That ruling followed the U.S. Supreme Court s decision in June legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide. But Bunning then delayed his own decision, effectively granting Davis request while also denying it. If the Court decided to delay enforcement of its Order while Davis pursues an unpromising appeal, it would essentially give Plaintiffs a favorable legal ruling with no teeth and prolong the likely violation of their constitutional rights, Bunning wrote. But Bunning acknowledged that emotions are running high on both sides of this debate and said he would delay his ruling while Davis appeals to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Attorneys on both sides disagreed about the implications. Dan Canon, representing the gay couples, said Davis remains under the judge s original order. But Mat Staver, who represents Davis and is the founder of Florida-based Liberty Counsel, said the convoluted order essentially grants her request for more time. What is clear is that Davis will continue refusing to issue marriage licenses to anyone in this county of about 23,000 people in the Appalachian foothills of eastern Kentucky. Man dies trying to pull another from ledge at Hawaii dorm HONOLULU (AP) Students at the University of Hawaii s Manoa campus were expected begin moving into dorms today, just days after a man fell to his death while trying to pull another man from a ledge at the Hale Wainani dormitory, police said. Counseling is available for students campuswide, and in the coming weeks, staff will be checking in on the students who were living in Hale Wainani at the time of Sunday s incident, university spokesman Dan Meisenzahl said. The 24-year-old man who died was trying to bring inside an apparently distraught 19-yearold who went out a window, authorities said. Both men fell from the 14th floor and were critically injured, police said in a statement. They were taken to a hospital, where the older man was pronounced dead. The other was in critical condition Monday, police said. Neither man was a University of Hawaii student, Meisenzahl said. A student who lived at the dorm had people over, and the two men were among them, Meisenzahl said. Their names were not released. The university is investigating whether any violations of the student code occurred. Police and officials work near the statue of Phra Phrom today, the Thai interpretation of the Hindu god Brahma, at the Erawan Shrine at Rajprasong intersection the day after an explosion in Bangkok. Police say man in yellow shirt is Bangkok bomber By NATTASUDA ANUSONADISAI and PAPITCHAYA BOONNGOK BANGKOK Thai police said today that investigators believe a man seen in security video wearing a yellow T-shirt and carrying a backpack set off the explosion at a central Bangkok shrine that killed 20 people and injured more than 100. The yellow shirt guy is not just the suspect. He is the bomber, Police Lt. Gen. Prawut Thavornsiri, a police spokesman, told The Associated Press. Prawut earlier released several photos of the man, with and without the backpack, on a social media platform. The images were apparently taken from closed-circuit video at Erawan shrine on Monday before the central Bangkok bombing. He confirmed that the man is suspected in the bombing when contacted by. Video footage posted separately on Thai media appeared to show the same man sitting on a bench at the crowded shrine, then taking off the backpack and leaving it behind as he walked away. Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha called Monday s explosion at a busy intersection the worst incident that has ever happened in Thailand, and he promised to track down those responsible. There have been minor bombs or just noise, but this time they aimed for innocent lives, Prayuth said. They want to destroy our economy, our tourism. Without elaborating about possible perpetrators, the prime minister said Tuesday, Today we have seen the closed-circuit footage, we saw some suspects, but it wasn t clear. We have to find them first. The improvised explosive device scattered body parts, spattered blood, blasted windows and burned motorbikes to the metal. The explosion went off around 7 in an upscale area filled with tourists, office workers and shoppers. No one had claimed responsibility. Bangkok was rocked again today when another explosive device blew up at a ferry pier, but no one was hurt. Police Senior Sgt. Maj. Worapong Boonthawee said an explosive device was thrown from the Taksin Bridge and blew up at Sathorn Pier after falling into the Chao Phraya River below. There is no injury, he said. Security camera footage shows a sudden blast of water over a walkway at the pier as bystanders run for safety. Prayuth gave his first televised address since the bombing today, saying the government will expedite all investigative efforts to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice. Thai authorities identified five victims as Thai and four as Chinese two of them from Hong Kong along with two Malaysians and one Singaporean, and said the nationalities of the other eight victims remained unknown. Defense Minister Prawit Wongsuwan said authorities had no idea an attack had been planned. We didn t know about this ahead of time. We had no intelligence on this attack, the defense minister said. Prayuth vowed to hurry and find the bombers, though he noted there may be just one perpetrator. Speaking to reporters, he continued what has been a notoriously prickly relationship with the media since the former general took control of the government in a May 2014 coup. Asked if there were leads on the suspects identities, Prayuth bristled, We are still investigating. The bomb has just exploded why are you asking now? Do you understand the word investigation? It s not like they claim responsibility. Thailand has seen many violent attacks in recent years, particularly through a more-than-decade-long insurgency by Muslim separatists that has left more than 5,000 dead in the country s deep south. Those attacks have never extended to the capital, however. Bangkok has seen politically charged violence over the past decade; the deadliest, in 2010, killed more than 90 over two months and was centered on the same intersection where Monday s bomb went off. But none of those attacks included a bomb blast that seemed intended to produce mass casualties. Matthew Wheeler, Southeast Asia security analyst for the International Crisis Group, said the bombing was a new type of attack for Bangkok that doesn t bear the trademarks of typical violence over the past decade from political instability or Muslim separatists.

His family less so. My wife has never gotten it, he noted. My kids weren t quite so happy with it. But the cult midnight movie musical celebrating its 40th anniversary this year was the perfect fit for Bostwick s quirky sensibilities. I was a New York actor who did a lot of off-broadway and weird things, said Bostwick, who originated the role of Danny Zuko on Broadway in 1972 in Grease and won a Tony in 1977 for the musical The Robber Bridegroom. Being a fan of the theater of the ridiculous-minded also helped, he said. Even though I was playing a very Actors Barry Bostwick, left, and Bruce Boxleitner mingle at the Crown Media Family Networks Television Critics Association party July 29 in Beverly Hills, Calif. straight character Brad Majors who was the epitome of the young Republican and 50s male, I was the opposite of that, he explained. That s why I could play it and understand it. I had a real love for all of those sort of iconic characters, and I loved the tongue-in-cheek aspect of it. Even four decades later, the fit and funny 70-year-old Bostwick is taking on offbeat roles. In 2012, he starred in the slapstick indie comedy FDR: American Badass!, in which he battled pesky werewolves who carried the polio virus. He recently finished the independent comedy Helen Keller vs. Nightwolves, in which he plays the romantic lead. I play someone much younger than myself and I have too much eye makeup on, he said with a twinkle of his blue eyes And in a few weeks he s about to start Please see BOSTWICK, Page 11
11 The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. ENTERTAINMENT Tuesday, August 18, 2015 / 11 Millions of dollars are made while thousands cheer By STEVE KNOPPER Newsday Fifty years ago this month, The Beatles played just 37 minutes at Shea Stadium, and they could barely hear themselves with all the teenagers screaming in the audience, but they kicked off a concert business money machine that would eventually reach millions of fans. The Beatles show raised $304,000; last year, according to Pollstar, One Direction s tour of mostly stadiums grossed more than $6 million per concert. Before The Beatles played Shea, rock artists were limited to performing in much smaller venues indoor arenas, clubs or movie theaters. But The Beatles performance showed that large-capacity stadiums could become legitimate places for bands to play even if the Fab Four looked like ants to spectators sitting in the upper deck. (This was the pre-videoscreen era, of course.) Here s a look at some musical memorable moments: 1965: Opening with Twist and Shout and She s a Woman, The Beatles played before a crowd of 55,600; Paul McCartney roamed the stage, as he continues to do at stadiums today, while John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison focused on their instruments. Harrison later called the experience terrifying and exhilarating. 1973: The Rolling Stones, Three Dog Night, Grand Funk Railroad and others had racked up giant stadium attendance numbers, but Led Zeppelin crushed them all during its 1973 tour, drawing 56,800 fans at Tampa Stadium in Florida, emphasizing Black Dog, Stairway to Heaven and other songs from the 2-yearold Led Zeppelin IV album. 1979: It wasn t a concert, but Chicago DJ Steve Dahl made music history on July 12 at Chicago s Comiskey Park between games of a White Sox-Tigers doubleheader. He d been leading the antidisco charge on the radio for months, and his Disco Demolition drew 20,000 fans, many of whom spilled onto the field and started a riot. After the promotional gimmick, once-dominant disco singles vanished from the charts. 1984: Nearly every show on Michael Jackson s first tour since Thriller sold out, beginning with 135,000 tickets for three nights at Kansas City s Arrowhead Stadium, when he performed with The Jacksons. The tour was so excessive, with groundbreaking laser effects and hundreds of security guards, that the promoter, New England Patriots owner Billy Sullivan, nearly went bankrupt. 1985: The Boomtown Rats Bob Geldof took stadium rock to its highest level for Live Aid, the charity event for Ethiopian famine relief. The concerts packed London s Wembley Stadium and Philadelphia s JFK Stadium simultaneously with 70 superstar bands, from U2 s breakthrough performance to a Led Zeppelin reunion to Bob Dylan crooning with the Rolling Stones Keith Richards and Ron Wood. The event attracted 162,000 fans and 1.5 billion worldwide TV viewers : Unsurprisingly, it was Guns N Roses that showed the dark side of stadium rock, when increasingly unstable frontman Axl Rose developed a habit of starting shows, then disappearing from the stage, as he did in Montreal and St. Louis, where he started riots. 1994: The Year of the Stadium, starring the long-awaited Eagles Hell Freezes Over reunion tour, Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, and Billy Joel and Elton John, drew 9 million fans to 214 North American venues, according to Billboard. 2003: Bruce Springsteen had played in stadiums for years, beginning with his mid- 80s Born in the U.S.A. tour, but his 10 nights at the old Giants Stadium was unprecedented. He opened several shows with rarities such as Janey Don t You Lose Heart. 2014: As baby boomers grew out of the stadium-rock demographic, tours in gigantic venues mostly disappeared, with one or two exceptions every summer, such as McCartney or Springsteen at Fenway. But it roared back last year, with stadium shows by One Direction, Jay Z and Beyonce, Joel and numerous country stars. 2015: Continuing the stadium renaissance, the Zac Brown Band has followed up its Jekyll + Hyde album with a full tour of baseball parks, including three shows at Boston s Fenway and two at New York s Citi Field. I still can t believe this many people buy this many tickets, Clay Cook, a band member, recently told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Reboot of Heroes may be odd, but creator still has stories to tell By ROB OWEN Pittsburgh Post-Gazette BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. There are logical reasons for CBS to introduce a Supergirl TV show this fall (comic book movies are all the rage) and the nostalgic appeal of The Muppets on ABC is clear. But even in the current rehash, reboot and regurgitate TV culture, NBC s reliance on Heroes Reborn (8-10 Sept. 24) remains a head-scratcher. When Heroes debuted in 2006, it had a smash first season that made a star out of Zachary Quinto, who played villainous Sylar. But by the end of the show s first season with its unsatisfying finale, there was the hint of problems in long-term storytelling that only grew as the series wore on and more and more viewers abandoned it. When Heroes went off the air in 2010 its ratings had dropped from the more than 14 million who tuned in for the series premiere to about 4 million viewers for the series finale. A headline at TVFanatic.com captured the sentiment of some viewers succinctly: Heroes Review: It s finally over! So why exactly is NBC bringing the show back? Series creator Tim Kring always felt the series ended too soon, that he had more stories to tell and more viewers who wanted to hear it than were captured by Nielsen ratings. The last full calendar year the show was on the air, 2009, we were the No. 1 most downloaded show in the world, legally and illegally downloaded, Kring said. We were right at the top of the most-streamed shows, the top of the most DVRed show and we sold lots and lots of DVDs. It was very hard to either acknowledge or crow about the fact that your show is being watched in all these other ways besides the network, but now that s something the network looks at and realizes, there was a big audience all along. NBC is calling Heroes Reborn a 13-episode event. In terms of what we learned from the previous series, a big chunk of that was taken care of by the fact it was an order of 13 episodes with the idea of beginning, middle and end, which took off so much of the pressure of how do you keep something going, Kring said. Heroes was really best when it was perceived as rare and special. Part of being rare and special is not being on the air all the time. The Heroes Reborn story kicks off a year after a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, home to cheerleader Claire Bennet in the original series. Actress Hayden Panetierre, who s occupied on ABC soap Nashville, Zachary Levi in Heroes Reborn. NBC won t return for Heroes Reborn so her character has been killed off. But Claire s father, Noah/HRG (Jack Coleman), returns after a conspiracy theorist (Henry Zebrowski) reveals the truth about the Texas attack. This new series introduces a mix of new characters with superhero skills including one played by Zachary Levi ( Chuck ) and returnees, including Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) and the Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis). Kring said time has not stopped in the Heroes universe. The show picks up five years later, so there s five years of story viewers are not privy to. In his mind, Heroes Reborn is essentially season 10 of Heroes, putting returning fans and newcomers on a closer-toequal footing in terms of what they don t know about what they come into the series not knowing. HRG is a character whose storyline is uncovering the mystery of what happened in the intervening years, Kring said. He unpacks a lot of the mythology from the original series. That will include exploring the events of that Odessa attack that killed Claire, whose power was her indestructibility. She died along with many, many other people at this event that happened, which is a big mystery because we all know Claire shouldn t die, Kring said. Heroes Reborn will not address the state of every character from the original series Kring said Sylar s whereabouts are not addressed because the new series is viewed as a relaunch. Who came back and who didn t was driven completely by the story, Kring said. Why make people think about a character that isn t in the show? Bostwick from page 10 filming a Web series, Inside the Extras Studio, in which he spoofs James Lipton, the host of Inside the Actors Studio. It s all about me interviewing some of the famous extras, said Bostwick. I run a school to teach them to be extras. He plays a much more traditional character in his latest project, the romantic comedy Love Under the Stars, on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Ashley Newbrough plays Becca, a young graduate student who is mentored by Walt (Bostwick), her sweet and concerned college adviser. Though Bostwick s played his share of bad guys, including Fitz s horrible father who rapes Mellie on ABC s Scandal, he loves playing someone like Walt. I like playing the mentoring, kind, supportive yet attractive male, he said. It goes all the way back to when I did (the Judith Krantz miniseries) Scruples with Lindsay Wagner. I did a number of Judith Krantz things. She always used to cast me because I seem to have a respect for women and her pieces always had that guy who was just a really nice guy and supportive. In a way this (character) sort of goes full circle. Bostwick was also a mentor on set. He was encouraging and really looked out for me as well, said Newbrough in an . He notices the small things that make a difference when you are an actor. After an emotional scene, he was the first one to make me laugh and help me shake it off. Barry is unaware of his enormous presence and what he gives as an actor. He was mentored by the Tony Award-winning actordirector Ellis Rabb when he was a young actor in New York in the late 60s with the APA-Phoenix Repertory Company. He was a wonderful man, said Bostwick, who made his Broadway debut with the company in 1969 in Sean O Casey s Cock-a-Doodle Dandy. He even paid for my first crowns because my teeth weren t very good, Bostwick said. He would take me around to Leonard Bernstein s apartment, and we would sit there and have a drink and some of the greats would come in and sort of chat. I was the fly on the wall. I was so fortunate. Though nearly 20 years younger than Bostwick, Michael J. Fox was also mentor to him on the awardwinning ABC comedy series Spin City, in which he played the dimwitted New York City mayor to Fox s deputy mayor. Fox, he said, showed him the sitcom ropes. He was so smart about that genre of comedy, said Bostwick. I would watch him work and watch him suss out what the problems were. He was so smart about what worked and what didn t work. Bostwick, who frequently attends Comic-Con-style conventions because of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, is excited about the film s big 40th-anniversary convention in New York in September. The musical, which also starred Susan Sarandon and Tim Curry, has saved a lot of lives, Bostwick noted, because people found a community going to the midnight screenings. People found who they were through that movie, said Bostwick. I can t tell you the number of people who come up to me and say it was one of the most meaningful if not the most meaningful moments in their lives when they first saw that movie and were part of the audience.
12 12 / Tuesday, August 18, 2015 FOOD The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. Compounding makes a better bit of butter By DANIEL NEMAN St. Louis Post-Dispatch In many cases such as when talking about money or sentences compound is the opposite of simple. But butter is different. Compound butter is simple to make. Compound butter is just butter with other things in it, and the other things make the butter better. If you have been to a steakhouse, and they top off your steak with a pat of butter, that s just butter. But if they top it off with butter that has bits of green in it, or brown, or if the butter is kind of red, that s compound butter. Compound butters work so well because fats are terrific conductors of flavor. If you mix a relatively small amount of an herb into a relatively large amount of butter, very soon all the butter will have the flavor of the herb. This is the same reason (or one of the same reasons) that you cook onions or garlic in butter or oil before adding other ingredients. With compound butters, you can be as creative as you wish. I happen to love a spice mix by Penzeys called Sunny Paris. I could mix a teaspoon or 1 1/2 teaspoons of the Sunny Paris mixture into a stick of butter and almost instantly end up with a delicious way to add extra punch to anything from eggs to sandwiches, from chicken to veal. You could grate orange peel into butter and make a compound butter to melt on top of duck or spread on toast (and if you wanted to add a few drops of Grand Marnier, I certainly wouldn t hold it against you). You could even blend some smoked salmon that has been pureed into butter and make a spread that would be incredible on toast points with a bowl of chowder. And just think of how you could use it with bagels. Making compound butter is ridiculously easy. Simply leave butter out to become soft. Stir in chopped herbs or any other flavoring that strikes your fancy, even wine. You can use it immediately or store it for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator or a few months in the freezer. If you put it in the fridge, you could just leave it in the bowl you mixed it in for the sake of convenience, but most chefs prefer to roll it into a log shape. That way, they can slice off pretty coin-shaped pats of the flavored butter whenever they need them. If you d like, you can whip the butter in a stand mixer before adding the other ingredients. That will make it easier to spread, even fresh out of the refrigerator. Whipped compound butters often make a happy appearance at pancake houses, usually sweetened and mixed with a fruit such as strawberries. But you don t have to go out to have it, you can stay at home and make it yourself. All you need are butter, strawberries and powdered sugar plus maybe a fresh, homemade biscuit to spread it on. The batch I made tasted delightfully of strawberries and was not at all too sweet. Most compound butters are savory. Perhaps the best known has the most daunting name, Beurre Maitre d Hotel, so called because it was often made tableside by a restaurant s maitre d. But even with this impressive pedigree, it is still easy to make remember, a very busy man would make it at your table. All you need is the softened butter, chopped parsley, a healthy amount of lemon juice and salt and pepper. Just stir and use immediately or refrigerate and use on steak or fresh-baked bread. Because it has more ingredients than the other compound butters I made, it has a fuller, more powerful flavor. It does not take much Beurre Maitre d Hotel to transform a dish. For a subtler taste, I combined two of my favorite aromatics, green onions and garlic. But I feared that raw garlic would add too harsh a taste for most applications, so I first gently sauteed a clove in olive oil and then I used the oil, not the garlic. A tablespoon of garlic-scented oil blended easily with the butter and minced green onions, and the oil only made the butter a little more soft when it was being mixed in. Once refrigerated, you couldn t tell a difference at all. You don t even have to stick to herbs, fruits and spices for your compound butter. One of the most famous varieties is anchovy butter. I happen to like anchovies, so I made it. I just mixed four minced anchovy fillets into one stick of butter and ended up with a pungent, piquant slice of happiness that goes wonderfully with grilled meat, eggs and pasta. And I can t wait to try it on veal. I was also struck by a compound butter recipe I saw that combines red wine, shallots, parsley and butter. Basically, it is the red wine shallot sauce that is popular at so many steakhouses, only with more butter and less wine. Naturally, it goes especially well with steak. Anchovies, strawberries, red wine, spice mixes obviously, you can use just about anything to make a compound butter. All it takes is a stick of butter and a little imagination.

13 The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. FOOD Tuesday, August 18, 2015 / 13 Go with a new grain for better stuffed peppers By SARA MOULTON Usually, there are two big problems with stuffed peppers: the peppers and the stuffing. Bland, bland, bland. The dish is a great idea. Stuff something delicious into something healthy and equally delicious. Except stuffed peppers never seem to turn out that way. But what if there was a way to make this dish actually taste like something? Turns out, there is. But you need to be willing to mix things up a bit. I did, and I was thrilled with the results. Rather than use white rice, which tends to lose all texture and taste in recipes like this, I used freekeh. It s a delicious young green wheat from North Africa and the Middle East that s been fire-roasted to give it a unique smokiness. It also happens to be astonishingly healthy, boasting high levels of protein, fiber and minerals. But for me, flavor is always first, and freekeh s got it. For my pepper stuffing, I pair the freekeh with a quartet of summer friends corn, zucchini, tomato and basil as well as a little feta cheese. To ensure a tasty filling, you need to carefully season the freekeh s cooking liquid and work to rid the veggies and herbs of excess water before combining them. (The zucchini are salted and squeezed; the tomatoes are roasted.) Also, be sure to taste and adjust the filling s seasonings before stuffing the peppers. Now, about those peppers. The problem stems from the common practice of boiling the peppers to start. The goal is to tenderize them before they re stuffed and baked, but generally the poor fellas are overboiled, which results in their tendency to fall apart and, as noted, be flavorless. But peppers can have tons of flavor when given the right treatment. The trick is to roast them at high heat. I slice mine in half, then roast them cut sides down, which puts a tasty little sear on the edges and helps some of the water drain out. Then I roast them cut side up, which softens the pepper a bit more. It s still quite al dente at that point, but it s perfectly tender after it s been stuffed and baked. One of the bonuses of this recipe is that you can prep and stuff the peppers a day ahead of time, then finish them in the oven right before the meal. One stuffed pepper half per person makes for a splendid side dish. Two per person makes for a delicious and nutritious meatless entree. BAKED STUFFED PEPPERS with FREEKEH Start to finish: 1 hour 40 minutes (40 minutes active) Serving: 4 1/2 cup cracked freekeh Baked stuffed peppers with freekeh 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 1 1/2 cups water 1 medium zucchini (about 1 pound), coarsely shredded, preferably using a food processor 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided 1 cup finely chopped yellow onion 1 cup corn kernels (about 1 ear of corn) 1 cup crumbled feta cheese 4 red, yellow or orange bell peppers, or a mix 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved 1/4 cup shredded basil Heat the oven to 450 F. In a small saucepan over medium-high, combine the freekeh, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover tightly, and cook for 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Drain any excess liquid and transfer the freekeh to a bowl. Meanwhile, in a colander toss the zucchini with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt and let drain over the sink. In a medium skillet over medium, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the onion to the freekeh. Working with small handfuls, squeeze the zucchini to remove excess liquid, then add to the freekeh, along with the corn and feta. Cut the peppers in half from top to bottom, leaving the stem intact if possible. Remove and discard the seeds and ribs. Brush a rimmed baking sheet with oil and arrange the peppers, cut sides down, on the pan. In a small bowl toss the tomatoes with the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Sprinkle with a bit of salt, then arrange in an even layer on the baking sheet. Roast the peppers and tomatoes on the oven s bottom shelf for 10 minutes, or until the cut edges of the peppers are browned and the tomatoes are softened and blistered in spots. Transfer the tomatoes to the bowl with the freekeh. Turn the pepper halves over, season with salt and pepper, then roast until softened slightly, about another 5 minutes. Season the freekeh mixture with salt and pepper. Reduce the oven to 400 F. Mound the filling in the cavity of each pepper half and bake the peppers on the oven s middle shelf until hot, about 10 minutes. Top each with basil.

14 14 / Tuesday, August 18, 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 Man insensitive to woman s past DEAR ABBY: Two years ago, I met a gentleman, and he eventually decided we were soul mates. I agreed. Over time, we shared our life stories, good and bad. I confided that I d had an abortion at the age of 18, which has By haunted me all my adult ABIGAIL life. VAN BUREN Recently he was reciting a chronology of my life. When he got to the abortion, he said,... and then you became a child murderer. His comment stunned me. He finds nothing wrong with it. Was this total disrespect, or am I overreacting? STUNNED IN PENNSYLVA- NIA DEAR STUNNED: That gentleman s remark was not only disrespectful, but also incredibly insensitive and wrong. It is not against the law to terminate a pregnancy in this country. It is a right that many women and men fought hard to achieve. Because each woman s circumstances are unique, this deeply personal decision is made for a variety of reasons. Like yourself, women experience a range of emotions afterward including feelings of sadness and anger, but also relief. For this person to have made such an insensitive comment should be a clue that he may not be your soul mate after all. Because of stigma that, not surprisingly, can cause feelings of shame, many women choose to remain silent about their decision to have an abortion. A resource that could be helpful to them and to you is Exhale (exhaleprovoice.org), a nonpolitical, nonjudgmental support organization for women who have had an abortion. Please check it out. DEAR ABBY: I m a 33-year-old man in academia, and it has been two years since DEAR ABBY my last relationship ended. (Her name was Erica. ) I have always been with older women, the most significant ones being 10 and eight years older. One ended because, in a night of depressed, alcoholfueled self-loathing, I cheated on her. I don t make those choices anymore. I have had chances to date, but none has drawn my interest the way Erica did until recently. Angie is a sweetheart with a good sense of humor. When I m around her, I start feeling twinges of how Erica made me feel. I m surprised by my attraction to Angie because she is only 19. Previous older mates were in education as I am, and Angie is, well, 19. I can t figure out if this is a genuine attraction, or if I m trying to prove to myself that I can be involved with someone younger. I admit I m intrigued by the idea of assuming the role of teacher instead of student. I don t want to see Angie hurt by a mistake in judgment on my part. Is it healthy for a 19-year-old to be interested in significantly older men? Should I stop overanalyzing this and give it a try? MR. X IN MICHIGAN DEAR MR. X: I think it depends upon what you mean by it. Young women can be attracted to older men for a variety of reasons. If Angie is one of your students, I d advise against a romantic involvement until after she has left your class to avoid any possible accusations of favoritism or even sexual harassment.

18 18 / Tuesday, August 18, 2015 SPORTS The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. Labor board blocks effort to unionize college athletes CHICAGO (AP) The National Labor Relations Board on Monday blocked a historic bid by Northwestern University football players to form the nation s first college athletes union, dealing a blow to a labor movement that could have transformed amateur sports. In a unanimous decision, the board said the prospect of union and nonunion teams in college could lead to different standards at different schools from how much money players receive to how much time they practice and create competitive imbalances on the field. The new ruling annuls a 2014 decision by a regional NLRB director in Chicago who said scholarship football players are employees under U.S. law and thus entitled to organize. But Monday s decision did not directly address the question of whether the players are employees. Some observers said the ruling effectively ends any chance to establish labor unions in college athletics. This puts the nail in the coffin of organizing college players, said Ronald Meisburg, a former NLRB general counsel and onetime board member. Tim Waters, of the United Steelworkers union, which helped bankroll the union drive, disagreed. It is a bump in the road, Waters said. The face of the union-building effort, former Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter, also expressed disappointment. But he said the push for unionization had already pressured the NCAA to take athletes grievances more seriously. It turned out to be the right thing to do, and I don t regret it, Colter said. The labor dispute goes to the heart of American college sports, where universities and conferences reap billions of dollars by relying on amateurs who are not paid. In other countries, college sports are small-time club affairs, while elite youth athletes often turn pro as teens. The biggest factor in how it ruled, the board said, was the NLRB s jurisdiction, which extends only to private schools like Northwestern, the sole private institution in the Big Ten. The board repeatedly cited the need for standardization of rules and policies in sports and said giving the green light to just one team to collectively bargain would disrupt that uniformity. NLRB rules do not offer the losing side the option to appeal. But Ramogi Huma, a former linebacker at UCLA who worked closely with Colter, said he has not given up on bringing unions to college football. The door s not closed, he said. Northwestern football players gather during practice at the University of Wisconsin- Parkside campus on Monday in Kenosha, Wis. The National Labor Relations Board on Monday overturned a historic ruling that gave Northwestern University football players the go-ahead to form the nation's first college athletes union, saying the prospect of union and non-union teams could throw off the competitive balance in college football. The board seemed to leave open the possibly of taking up the unionization issue again if it involved other schools or if conditions change for Northwestern football. But Meisburg said the way the ruling highlights the challenges of organizing sports at private and state schools means the board is unlikely to consider another union petition from a college team. I don t see those institutional problems going away, Meisburg said. Northwestern became the focal point of the labor fight in January 2014, when Colter announced plans to form the first U.S. labor union for college athletes. He appeared at a news conference for the College Athletes Players Association. Three months later, regional NLRB Director Peter Sung Ohr issued his decision, saying Northwestern football players should be able to unionize. A month later, players cast secret ballots on whether to unionize. Those ballots were sealed during the appeal and will now be destroyed without being counted. While NLRB decisions sometimes split along party lines, the three Democrats and two Republicans on the board all agreed. Under U.S. law, an employee is regarded as someone who receives compensation for a service and is under the direct control of managers. In Northwestern s case, Ohr concluded coaches are the equivalent of business managers and scholarships are a form of pay. On Monday, Waters criticized the NLRB for sidestepping the most sensitive question: Are scholarship players employees? It s like they had a hot potato tossed into their laps, and they took a year and a half of deliberations and said, We re going to toss it back, he said. The board s decision was welcomed by the NCAA, which has been fighting lawsuits from former athletes over everything from head injuries to revenue earned from their likenesses in video games. In a statement, the Indianapolis-based NCAA portrayed the board s ruling as recognition that it s trying to improve conditions for athletes. This ruling allows us to continue to make progress... without risking the instability to college sports that the NLRB recognized might occur, it said. Northwestern s vice president for university relations, Alan Cubbage, also welcomed the ruling. And he applauded pro-union players for bringing national attention to these important issues. The NCAA recently cleared the way for the five biggest conferences, including the Big Ten, to add player stipends to help athletes defray some of their expenses. Northwestern, the Big Ten and the NCAA all argued against the unionization effort, saying that lumping college athletes into the same category as factory workers would change amateur athletics for the worse. The specific goals of pro-union players included guaranteeing coverage of sportsrelated medical expenses for current and former players and reducing head injuries. Failed union bid will not stop reforms SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) With or without a union, more rights and benefits are coming for college athletes. Whether the NCAA schools that compete in big-time athletics can provide enough to keep other more ominous threats to collegiate sports at bay remains to be seen. Even the failed attempt to unionize the Northwestern football could be viewed as progress for those still pushing for reform. I certainly don t think this is the end of this type of discussion, said David Ridpath, a professor of sports administration at Ohio University and president-elect of the Drake Group, a watchdog group for college sports. And certainly regardless of what happens, this has energized the athletes rights movement for years to come. The National Labor Relations Board on Monday blocked a historic bid by Northwestern University football players to form the nation s first college athletes union. In a unanimous decision, the board said the prospect of union and nonunion teams in college could lead to different standards at different schools from how much money players receive to how much time they practice and create competitive imbalances on the field. The new ruling annuls a 2014 decision by a regional NLRB director in Chicago who said scholarship football players are employees under U.S. law and thus entitled to organize. But Monday s decision did not directly address the question of whether the players are employees, which allowed the organizers of the movement to claim it was only a setback. The door s not closed, said Ramogi Huma, a former UCLA football player and executive director of the advocacy group, the National College Players Association. The biggest factor in how it ruled, the board said, was the NLRB s jurisdiction, which extends only to private schools like Northwestern, Notre Dame and the University of Southern California. The board repeatedly cited the need for standardization of rules and policies in sports and said giving the green light to just one team to collectively bargain would disrupt that uniformity. Public university are subject to state labor laws. Huma and former Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter, who became the face of the unionization movement, said the bid to unionize helped push along reforms such as more long-term health coverage of the college athletes, guaranteed fouryear scholarships for athletes and the removal of NCAA restrictions on meals for athletes. Starting this school year, universities can begin paying stipends worth several thousands of dollars to college athletes to cover cost-of-attendance expenses beyond tuition, books and room and board.

Practice from page 24 We re playing in the Dome again, and we ve got to redeem ourselves and get off to a good start. The coaching staff s real excited, and I think the players are. While the opener against Cazenovia is certainly on the Rams collective minds, first and foremost for the team is powering through two weeks of marathon practice schedules in oppressive late- August heat. Senior running back Bryan Stanavich said the best way to cope with the long days is by maintaining energy and enthusiasm. I think everyone s excited about this team. Just to get out here and see everyone out here from all sports is exciting, Stanavich said. The energy in the Rams huddle comes from having a team that, while relatively young, is as talented as any group to pull on Amsterdam purple and gold in the last several years. We re young, but I think everyone s ready, Stanavich said. The young guys want to play. Edick and his coaching staff have seen Adam Shinder/Recorder staff The Amsterdam Rugged Rams walk off the field after their Monday morning football practice session at Amsterdam High School. that same energy throughout offseason workouts and last week s team clinic, and it carried over Monday bright and early as it was. These guys want to be here. It s a good group of kids, Edick said. They ve worked hard in the offseason, for the most part, and I think we re ready to go. Practice opened Monday with players in helmets, but not full pads, meaning their was no contact and the focus was on both refining technique and making sure the team had its offensive and defensive concepts down pat. Later this week, the pads will come on and hitting will begin though the date the Rams are really looking forward to is Aug. 29, when they ll have their annual scrimmage with Schenectady and get their first chance to hit someone who isn t wearing the same uniform as they are. In the meantime, it s full speed ahead to the Carrier Dome. You re always excited to hit someone else, Edick said. It s a long preseason, but we ll get through it and get something accomplished heading into the scrimmage. Contact ADAM SHINDER at
20 20 / Tuesday, August 18, 2015 SPORTS The Recorder, Amsterdam, N.Y. Austin Dillon, left, and Matt Kenseth lead the pack through the first turn during Sunday s NASCAR Sprint Cup series auto race at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich. JGR leaps ahead of pack, eyes Sprint Cup series title By JENNA FRYER Listen to Joe Gibbs and he will tell you his race teams lagged behind the competition just 10 weeks ago. Statistics show the organization has not only caught up, but passed the leaders. Gibbs drivers have won seven of the last 12 races, including a victory Sunday at Michigan International Speedway with Matt Kenseth. A Toyota team win in the shadow of Detroit was a triumph for the manufacturer it ended a seven-race winning streak for Ford and Chevrolet teams and a way for Joe Gibbs Racing to thank the automaker for its commitment to the organization. Without the guidance of Toyota, JGR might still be struggling to keep up with the Hendricks and Penskes of the world. We ve got great partners, thanks to Toyota, all the hard work they ve done over the last year-and-a-half, Gibbs said. Behind the scenes, Toyota Racing Development has quietly worked with JGR on closing gaps that clearly hampered the organization last year. Although Denny Hamlin made it to the final round of the Sprint Cup championship, it was a struggle to convince anyone that JGR s cars were on the same level as the top contenders. Kenseth, a seven-race winner who took Jimmie Johnson all the way to the finale in the 2013 championship race, went winless. Hamlin and Kyle Busch had just one victory apiece, and all three drivers felt TRD s engines were not up to par. JGR brought in Carl Edwards to expand to four teams this season, and both the team and the manufacturer had work to do to remain a powerhouse. Their efforts took a hit the day before the seasonopening Daytona 500 when Busch was seriously injured in a crash. He missed the first 11 races of the season otherwise known as the period in NASCAR: IN THE PITS which JGR was struggling this season. Busch returned in late May for the All-Star race, and just one week later, Edwards had his first JGR victory with a win in the Coca-Cola 600. Busch grabbed his first win a month later on the road course at Sonoma, then reeled off three straight wins. Kenseth won at Pocono to make it four in a row for JGR, Busch settled for second the next week at Watkins Glen, and the team was back in victory lane Sunday at Michigan. Up next? Saturday night s race at Bristol Motor Speedway, where Kenseth won in April. As David Wilson, president and general manager of TRD, collected the Michigan Heritage Trophy given to the winning manufacturer, he insisted this surge is not sudden. People tend to think that this came on like a light switch, said Wilson, who vowed to display the trophy at the Detroit Auto Show. The reality is, this sport is so difficult, so competitive, it s about working hard, and really that turnaround started last summer. We knew we were in trouble. We buckled down, and we kept digging. The question, though, is if JGR can maintain this pace and win Toyota its first Sprint Cup championship. JGR for years has been strong in the 26-week regular season, only to fall apart in the Chase. Hamlin was twice in title contention in the finale, losing to Johnson in 2010 and Kevin Harvick last year. Kenseth came up short in 2013, and Busch has always seen his regular-season gains unravel once the Chase begins. So even though the Busch comeback has been phenomenal four wins in 12 Cup races, plus two Xfinity Series victories and two Truck Series victories few are convinced he can keep that up in the Chase. Or JGR, either, for that matter. The organization has three Sprint Cup titles, but none since Tony Stewart s in Photo submitted SUCCESSFUL SUMMER The Mohawks finished the 2015 Amsterdam City League Recreation Softball season as regular season co-champions.

Boston s bats cooled off in 8-2 loss to Cleveland BOSTON (AP) Travis Shaw stayed hot, but the rest of the Boston Red Sox could not. The rookie infielder slugged a third-inning home run and drove in another run with a single in the ninth, but that was all the offense Boston could muster in an 8-2 loss to Danny Salazar and the Cleveland Indians. The Red Sox scored 45 runs on 60 hits in their previous three games against Seattle. He s hitting some quality pitching, Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo said of Shaw. He hit a great pitch tonight for a long home run. It was impressive. Shaw is batting.328 (19 for 58) with five home runs and 10 RBIs in 21 games since being called up from Triple-A Pawtucket on Aug. 1. He s a beast, said teammate Jackie Bradley Jr., who played with Shaw in Pawtucket. He s really swinging the bat well. That s what I ve seen all the time. He s a very special player. Matt Barnes (3-3) was called up Monday from Triple-A and made his first major league start, giving up six runs on six hits in five innings. The 25-year-old righthander held the Indians hitless for the first innings. Yankees from page 24 He just tried to get out of the way and luckily what could have happened didn t, McCann said. Added Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner: I saw him here after the game for a minute and it seemed like he was doing fine. Rookie Greg Bird doubled and the Yankees loaded the bases with no outs in the 10th against Glen Perkins (1-4). Twins manager Paul Molitor took out right fielder Torii Hunter and added an extra infielder the strategy was good, his team s fielding wasn t. Headley hit a hard grounder up the middle to Nunez, who had been playing shortstop. Nunez fumbled the ball and by the time he recovered, he had no chance for a forceout at the plate. Andrew Miller (1-2) got the victory as the AL East-leading Yankees started a season-high 10-game homestand with their third win in four games. The Twins, contending for a wild card, lost to begin a 10- game trip that also will take them to Baltimore and Tampa Bay. Knocked to the ground, Mitchell left with a towel over his bloody face. He was taken to a hospital and released. The Yankees will monitor him for the possibility of concussion symptoms. I get goosebumps talking about it, Molitor said. You re playing the game, and then you see someone go through something like that. I know they ve talked about trying to find that protective cap for pitchers. They haven t come up with anything that looks very practical as of yet. The face is pretty much something that s going to be unprotected, no matter what you do, he said. Carlos Beltran hit a tying tworun homer for the Yankees in the sixth. New York loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, but reliever Casey Fien got McCann on a popup and fanned Beltran. Rookie Miguel Sano, Trevor Plouffe and Aaron Hicks homered for the Twins. Brian Dozier singled his first three times up, and then struck out after a long I felt really good out there, Barnes said. I thought I had really good command of all three pitches. The fastball, when it missed, was around the zone. Curveball I felt really good with. I was able to use a changeup, as well. Salazar pitched seven strong innings to cool off Boston s hot bats, and Lonnie Chisenhall had a solo homer and three RBIs to carry the Indians. Carlos Santana also hit a solo shot, and Chisenhall s two-run double highlighted a five-run fourth that lifted Cleveland to its sixth win in nine games. Salazar (11-6) allowed one run on four hits, striking out five and walking one. He s given up twoor-fewer runs in six of his last seven starts. The Indians took the lead with their five-run inning against Barnes. Abraham Almonte s safety squeeze made it 1-1, and he reached on the bunt for a hit. Chisenhall then doubled over the head of left fielder Hanley Ramirez, who had a late break on the ball that hit low on the Green Monster. Jerry Sands and Mike Aviles followed with consecutive run-scoring singles. foul that umpires reviewed to be sure it wasn t a home run. McCann hit a three-run homer in the first off Kyle Gibson and had a two-run single in the third that made it 5-all. McCann has enjoyed tremendous success in the first inning this season in those at-bats, he is 17 for 35 with six home runs and 28 RBIs. Bird, in the game after Mark Teixeira injured himself on a foul, opened the 10th with a double. He made it to third on McCann s double and Beltran was intentionally walked. TRAINER S ROOM Yankees: 1B Teixeira fouled a ball off his lower right leg and exited with a bruise, with Bird taking his place. X-rays were negative. Right below the knee, just a bad spot, he said. Hopefully, it feels better tomorrow but it hurts to put any pressure on it right now.... RHP Michael Pineda, on the DL since July 30 with a forearm strain, threw 42 pitches Sunday at Double-A in his first rehab start. Girardi said he s not sure yet on Pineda s next step. UP NEXT Twins: RHP Mike Pelfrey (6-7, 3.70 ERA) had gone 10 starts without a win before beating Texas in his last outing. A former mainstay in the Mets rotation, this will be his first start vs. the Yankees since Yankees: LHP CC Sabathia (4-9, 5.23 ERA) starts a day after TMZ posted video of him getting into a verbal altercation with hecklers outside a nightclub in Toronto over the weekend. He certainly has throttled Joe Mauer the Twins star is just 8 for 47 (.170) vs. the big lefty and has struck out 19 times.
