The Way Things Were -- 10/29/2014
By Anne Weaver

ABOUT THE WEEK OF OCT. 29, 1965, the exercise of physical skills and the view of unspoiled nature are the joys of mountain climbing. The recent adventures of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas and New York Senator Robert F. Kennedy had helped make this active sport a current vogue.

Game time

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.
In the previous week's game at Inlet, the Screamers crushed the team from Raquette Lake with a score of 16-1. Dede Ste-Marie, Beth Williamson, Ashley Fowler and Emily Wilton all had three-hit games. 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 ...

Hunter answers the call of the wild
By Dick Nelson

Scary, eerie, frightening. Each of these words can be used to describe the unknown as we approach both Halloween and Election Day. The former because of all the little witches, warlocks and goblins that will be knocking on our doors; the latter because of the possibility that sportsmen and gun owners may wake up in a house of horrors.
I'll have more on those elections in a minute, but for now I have a different story to tell -- or at least Dick Andrews does.
Some of you may recall that name from ...

Unclog your inbox to make life better
By Peter Newell

I work on a lot of computers, and one of the most common problems I see is email inboxes cluttered with junk email.
This clutter comes from basically three sources. Two of the three are relatively easy to eliminate.
The most difficult unwanted email to eliminate is outright 'unsolicited commercial email' or 'spam.' This is the stuff you never specifically signed up for (at least not on purpose). It includes the random 'Nigerian scam' type of email, the advertisements for on-line meds and other s ...

What you were hearing was the thunderous sound of rifles and shotguns fired by junior and waterfowl hunters zeroing in on deer and ducks as both the first portion of the 2014-15 Southeastern Zone waterfowl hunting season and the third annual Youth Deer Hunting Weekend got underway.
According to DEC Director of Media Relations Tom Mailey, junior hunters harveste ...
