Volleyball team as nice as they are talented

By MICHAEL KELLY For the Express Each time I go along for an extended postseason ride with a local high school sports team, what I find is that I tend to most remember one specific quality from that squad. From the Broadalbin-Perth boys soccer team that won a state championship in 2011, what I remember is that those Patriots had an unshakeable coolness about them; they knew they could win that title, and that confidence carried them through everything. The Fonda-Fultonville football team that l ...

B-P returns eight from last season’s 16-6 squad

By ADAM SHINDER For the Express BROADALBIN -- Name the situation, and the Broadalbin-Perth boys basketball team can put a lineup on the floor to handle it. “We have pressing lineups where we can go full-court press, steal the ball,” said sophomore point guard Preston Taylor. “Some lineups, we're lanky and long and can get in the passing lanes. Some lineups are shooters. We're definitely versatile.” Versatile, and experienced. With eight varsity players returning from las ...

No regrets for Lady Patriots after title defeat

By MICHAEL KELLY For the Express GLENS FALLS — The Broadalbin-Perth girls volleyball team had no regrets with the way it played in Sunday's season-ending match. No, the only regret for the Lady Patriots was that their 2014 campaign ever had to end. ‘This whole season has just been unbelievable,” Lady Patriots senior Keyana Fariello said. “We fought our hardest and had an amazing season,” B-P senior Chelsea LeBlanc said. The most successful campaign in Lady Patriots ...

New York’s big game hunters hit the trails by Dick Nelson

New York’s big game hunting season opened across the Southern Zone Saturday and if it’s anything like previous years, hundreds, maybe even thousands of deer hunters will step into the woods without as much as a clue on what to expect. I’m referring to the hunters that never take the time to do any pre-season scouting. All they know is that it’s opening day and as long as they have enough ammunition to shoot at a herd of deer, they’re good to go. Many of them arrived ...

Actions outweigh motives in hatchery reopening by Dick Nelson

Far be it from me to suggest that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s announcement that the Connetquot River State Park Preserve hatchery would reopen in 2015, or a recent conservation easement agreement for the 4,000-acre Black Rock Forest located in Orange County along with the opening of several Adirondack state land roads normally closed to motorized vehicles in Essex, Franklin and Hamilton counties to accommodate hunters – each of which occurred two weeks before the Nov. 4 elections — had ...

Right now, if it’s fowl it’s fair game for hunters by Dick Nelson

Now that the waterfowl hunting season for ducks, snow geese and brant has opened across the Southeastern Zone, pheasant, grouse, turkey and woodcock aren't the only feathered species ducking for cover. Just about everything that has wings and is classified as "wild game" is on a hunter's hit list and that includes the lowly common crow. But for actual dining purposes, if I had to choose one species over the other the ruffed grouse would win, wings down. As far as I'm concerned, the grouse is the ...

Saturday is National Hunting & Fishing Day by Dick Nelson

It only happens once a year, but ever since 1972, when President Richard Nixon signed the first proclamation declaring the fourth Saturday of September as National Hunting and Fishing Day, hunters and fishermen have had reason to celebrate. This year annual celebration is set for Saturday, Sept. 27, and while I know I’m talking to the choir, long before it became fashionable, and agencies and organizations such as the EPA and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals were non-existent an ...

Time to remove exotic animals

After years of doing battle with the town of Mayfield in New York State courts, and losing every step of the way, it’s time for the town to enforce its cease and desist order against exotic animal business owner Steve Salton. Mr. Salton has kept at least three full-grown tigers and two leopards in a back yard enclosure in an R-1 residential district for several years and charged money to exhibit them. In June 2011, Mayfield town code enforcement officer Michael Stewart notified Salton that ...

Talk to your kids about gambling To the editor: Before you read this article it is only fair to state that we are neither for nor against gambling. Gambling can be a fun activity for adults, when done responsibly. We are writing this letter because we are concerned with youth and “problem gambling” and feel we have information for parents that can be helpful. It’s important to first understand what gambling is. Webster’s Dictionary defines gambling as, “to stake or ...

Our opinion

It’s well past time to let the cat out of the bag. Or, in the seemingly never-ending case of the exotic animals in Mayfield, it’s time for their owner to wave the white flag and move on. As has been documented on numerous occasions in the past three years, Mayfield resident Steven Salton keeps three tigers and two leopards at his Route 30 home. He has fought — tooth and nail — a pack of neighborhood complaints and a litter of legal challenges, all in an attempt to keep th ...
