B-P continues hot start with win over Sir Bills

By ADAM SHINDER For the Express BROADALBIN — When the Broadalbin-Perth Patriots are snapping the ball around on the offensive end of the court this season, they're leaving opposing defenses with a severe case of whiplash. Last week, the Patriots continued their stellar start to the 2015-16 boys basketball season, with crisp ball movement, smothering defense and balanced scoring leading the way as B-P pulled away for a 75-44 rout of the Johnstown Sir Bills at Robert C. Munn Gymnasium. "We ...

Gloversville Dragons fly to victory over visiting Rams

By ADAM SHINDER For the Express GLOVERSVILLE — The Gloversville boys basketball team was able to earn a victory on Friday night when the Running Rams got into foul trouble.

Gloversville took full advantage, with Jacquez Nails leading the charge early and Alex Reppenhagen providing key points in the fourth quarter as the Dragons pulled away to claim a 65-54 Foothills Council win. The Rams were still without the i ...

Turnovers haunt Lady Dragons in loss to AHS

By ADAM SHINDER For the Express TOWN OF AMSTERDAM — The Gloversville Lady Dragons were unable to overcome numerous turnovers on the road against the Amsterdam Lady Rams on Thursday night. A tenacious defense that forced Gloversville into 27 turnovers and some scorching 3-point shooting from Brady Santiago and Maria Lomanto proved to be the perfect formula for the Lady Rams, as they cruised to a 65-44 victory. "Just getting back to working together and winning as a team is a good feeling," ...

Percentage-wise, it’s not a very deer season by Dick Nelson

For years people have been telling me I should get a hearing aid and my answer has always been, "It's cheaper to say, 'What?' than to spend the more than $6,000 it would cost for a quality set of hearing aids." Besides, at my age, I doubt if I'd get my money's worth. I mention this because I haven't heard many shots since the start of the Southern Zone's regular big game hunting season and, given my partial loss of hearing, I thought it was just me. But from the number of calls and emails I've r ...

Sitting on stand leaves room for thought by Dick Nelson

When New York's big game hunting season opened across the Southern Tier on Nov. 21 it found me sitting on post, and much like thousands of other hunters, waiting for a buck to come into the mock scrape I had made. I placed that scrape in-between two natural scrapes I had come across earlier this month; refreshing it the day before the season started. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been hunting long enough to know that sitting on a scrape doesn’t necessarily mean the buck who made it ...

Deer season normally begins with a bang by Dick Nelson

Chances are, if you're a deer hunter, you won't be reading this until the sun goes down or you filled your deer tag early this morning. For those of you wondering what I mean by that, or prefer purchasing meat from a butcher; New York's regular big game hunting season opened across the Southern Tier last weekend and it's a pretty good bet that more than 25 percent of the whitetails that were walking around when the sun came up, won't be around to see it set. Regardless of weather conditions, ope ...

Southern Tier hunters will soon be gunning for deer by Dick Nelson

New York's deer hunting season opens across the Southern Tier on November 21, and while deer hunters are hoping it will be cold and snowy, you can bet your favorite shootin' iron that the deer are praying for rain and warm temperatures. From all appearances it looks as though weather conditions will favor the deer. The long-range forecast is calling for temperatures in the high 50's on opening weekend with a 20 percent chance of rain. So what else is new? Opening day has been far from ideal in r ...

Public Works and Water departments should be combined To the editor, I am writing this to clear up what I see as some misconceptions with the Charter Review Committee’s recommendations concerning the current structure of Johnstown’s Water Department. I feel that too many residents are concentrating on the abolishment of a “Water Board”.  What we really want is to combine the two departments under one leadership to improve efficiency.   Too many times in small c ...

Can't we do better for our pets? To the editor: Two weeks ago, our dog was bitten multiple times by a dog that got out of its back yard in Gloversville. The vet told us he was lucky; one of the bite punctures nearly missed his jugular, and their office has seen many cases like this lately where the injured dog was much worse off. Although there is a leash law ("Dogs at large prohibited") in the city of Gloversville, the responding police officer told us that it was only a civil matter and he co ...
