B-P boys to play defending champs tonight

Patriots top Granville in Class B opener By PAUL ANTONELLI For the Express BROADALBIN — Broadalbin-Perth's Preston Taylor was oh so close to reaching his first career triple double against Granville on Tuesday night. But instead of basking in his solid outing, the talented point guard sounded more like a college senior than a high school sophomore minutes after the Patriots posted a solid 67-44 victory over the Golden Horde in opening round action of the Section II Class B boys basketbal ...

Boys basketball seedings announced: Challenging non-league games pay off for B-P

By ADAM SHINDER For the Express Quality wins matter, and the Broadalbin-Perth boys basketball team has them in spades this season. Patriots coach Tucker Gifford set an ambitious non-league schedule against fellow Section II Class B powers like Cohoes, Schalmont and Mekeel Christian. B-P passed every single one of those tests, and because of that the Patriots were able to overcome their six losses to Class A schools in Foothills Council play in the eyes of the Section II boys basketball committe ...

Deep layer of snow a drag for ice fishermen by Dick Nelson

With almost two feet of ice on area lakes you would think most frozen impoundments would be bustling with activity. Not so; and it has nothing to do with cold temperatures or wind chill factors — which in some parts of the region have reached 30 below — as it much as it is about the knee-deep crusty snow. Having to dredge through deep snow by foot, or getting your a four wheeler or snowmobile bogged down before your half way to where you want to go kind of puts a wrinkle in that old ...

Fewer trappers and lower prices for their pelts by Dick Nelson

Once a cherished way of life, trapping is now one of the most controversial issues in the country. But even though trapping's roots can be traced back to early Dutch settlers, few people realize we may not have had a nation if the fur resource wasn't as plentiful as it was. While that resource continues to prosper, the number of full-time trappers has been in decline for decades, mostly because of the price of fur. According to DEC spokeswoman Lori Severino, New York sold 16,435 trappers license ...

More than 2,000 took part in fishing contests by Dick Nelson

No one from Fuel N' Food or the Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce tourism office could say with any certainty how many of the 1,750 anglers who were registered in the Jan. 31 Walleye Fishing Contest on Sacandaga Lake actually had a line in the water, but given the frigid conditions those that did show up were definitely up to the "challenge." In all, 323 walleye were pulled through the ice, and while Doug Royal of Mayfield was the first angler to have his fish weighed the heaviest w ...

Storms good for snowmobiling, not ice fishing by Dick Nelson

As I watch the snow blow horizontally across my window, I can't help wonder how much more of this we have to endure. Officially spring is still 44 days away, but as far as I'm concerned it's not soon enough. Cold temperatures and snow may be welcome to skiers, snowmobilers, and the people who sell snow shovels, but for ice fishermen and the finny population they're trying to catch, large accumulations of snow often make the difference between convenience and inconvenience, or when it comes to fi ...

Letter to the Editor - 02/06/2015

Abolish the APA Act To the editor: The Adirondack Park Agency Act (APA Act) 1973, authorizing the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) to mandate how the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) shall manage Forest Preserve state land in the Adirondack Park, violates Article XVI of the State Constitution, and is therefore illegal legislation. Law adopted into the Constitution in 1895, specifically authorizes only the DEC to make all rules and regulations for public use of the Forest Preserve. The ...

Why is state ignoring Fulton County? Dear Editor: On Thursday, December 11, Governor Cuomo announced the latest 2014 grant awards from New York State's Regional Economic Development Councils, including 62 projects in the Mohawk Valley Region. Fulton County was the only upstate county in the state that was totally neglected by this round of the State's economic development program. Our region of the state was hit hard when the American manufacturing sector began shrinking several decades ago. Si ...

Hurry, hurry. Step right up to the three-ring Mayfield Circus. In the first ring, you'll see Steven Salton, neighborhood owner of three tigers and two leopards.
