Cold and rain didn't stop a game of soccer when the Long Lake and Johnsburg central schools' elementary soccer teams recently went head-to-head in a fun-filled game. Johnsburg prevailed 6-1, but in elementary sports the emphasis is on learning the game, learning sportsmanship, and having fun.

Hot Screamers softball team finishes off 2014 with a bang

INLET -- Matt's Drafthouse Hot Screamers softball team finished off the 2014 season with a bang. They came out of the gate on fire in the championship game against The Inn On Gore, putting up 10 runs in the top of the first. Every batter hit the ball hard, and the inning was only ended because of the 10-run rule. Kyle Houser and DeDe Ste-Marie both singled and then scored when Beth Williamson crushed a three homer. Heather Levi drew a walk, Meg Kraeger singled, Ashley Fowler smacked a double fol ...

Hot Screamers win again

INLET -- Matt’s Hot Screamers improved its record to 4-0 after a hard fought victory over a scrappy Speculator squad.

Loren Dykeman pitched another fine game, and the team defense was superb. Heather Levi, Brittany Jackson, Crystal LaPorte, and Kyle Hauser all scored twice and the team combined ...

The Information Age -- 12/17/2014 All software is experimental By Peter Newell

Why does there seem to be so many problems with computer software? The simple answer is that consumer-grade software has not been 100 percent tested. More testing could be done, but it would make the cost of software unacceptable. On top of that, there is just no way to test every possible configuration or combination of software that might be installed by a user, or every possible combination of inputs, commands, or variables that might occur. The more functionality and flexibility a program of ...

Hamilton County Outdoors -- 12/17/2014 Hunting season all over but the counting By Dick Nelson

Another New York state big game hunting season has gone by the boards and, going by several early reports, it appears the kill will be substantially lower than the 208,325 taken in 2013. Even with the high number of deer management permits that were available, the number of does taken by hunters will -- in all probability -- also be lower than last year. Due to my wife's health problems I didn't get into the deer woods at all this year, signing my DMP over to my son Richie, who also had one of h ...

The Way Things Were -- 12/17/2014 By Anne Weaver

ABOUT THE WEEK OF DEC. 17, 1965, called noels in France, le pastorali in Italy and Weihnachtslieder in Germany, carols are the welcome sound of Christmas everywhere. But did you know that originally carols were not songs but dances? It's a fact. These "round" dances were part of early Christian worship, and one of the first "carolers" was St. Francis of Assisi, back in the 12th century. The first carol was probably sung as an accompaniment to early nativity plays; one of the earliest of the chor ...

Hamilton County Outdoors -- 12/10/2014 Deer hunters hit the end of the trail By Dick Nelson

New York's regular big game hunting seasons are coming down to the wire. The gunning season ended Sunday and, unless you shoot something during the late bow and muzzleloader seasons, you'll have to go through a whole year of greasy pork chops, plain old beefsteaks, or other store-bought vittles. Both the late bow and muzzleloading seasons end in the Northern Zone Dec. 14 and in the Southern Tier Dec. 16. At any rate, it would be far better to nourish yourself with a healthy fat-free venison stea ...

Quitting is the best gift

Dear Editor: It's almost that time again -- time to reflect on the past year and time to resolve to do something differently in the months ahead. This year, why not make quitting smoking a priority? Quitting is truly the best gift you can give your family, your loved ones, and yourself. Shortly after quitting your blood pressure and pulse rate return to normal, your risk of a heart attack drops, and breathing becomes easier as your lung capacity increases. Your doctor's assistance will more than ...

So appreciated

Dear Cris: The eighth grade at the Lake Pleasant school has once again been very thoughtful and caring to some of our elder senior citizens, as evidenced by a lovely Christmas "basket" of fruit and cookies delivered to my door Wednesday morning. I am grateful to all of the students and staff for it and I wish for each one a blessed and wonderful Christmas, and a happy healthy New Year! God bless us one and all. John M. Johansen Speculator
