Have fun, get your money’s worth

As social and political experts scramble to explain the the downward spiral of our nation over the years, and a whirlwind of debate from all sides only makes every argument of our decline more confusing to you than the next, consider this: Ten years ago today, President George W. Bush transferred his presidential powers to Vice President Dick Cheney for more than two hours during a routine colon screening that ended in a clean bill of health. That’s right, for two hours, Mr. Cheney was in charge, with his finger on the button (as opposed to the usual, keeping his finger on the finger on the button). Who knows what really happened in those two hours?

Unless you live under a rock, I’m sure that you’ve heard the Supreme Court’s ruling that upholds the president’s proposal for health care reform (and even if you do live under a rock, you still have to have health insurance by 2014). I admit, I’m on the fence when it comes to their ruling. True, no one should need to purchase health insurance or any other private service under order of the federal government; but on the other hand, I already pay taxes to maintain roads I’ll never drive on, grants for townships I’ll never visit, and state and federal assistance for people I’ll never meet (worse, some of that assistance supports people out there I don’t really like). But I don’t know anyone whose never been to the doctor. I already pay for a lot of things I never directly benefit from; at least the person who benefits from my paying health care is me.

Maybe, just maybe, two years from now, we’ll be wondering what we did without mandated health insurance. We’ll laugh in recollection of how sinister the world seemed, what with all of its uneven stairs, grimy door knobs, dirty sidewalks, and the KFC / Taco Bell drive thru – all of which dramatically compromise the stability of human health. With health insurance, none of these things will be so scary, right?

In fact, why not go the extra mile? I say, now that I need health insurance anyway, why not live it up? All the stupid things I did as a kid are suddenly sound fun again. I still have my bicycle and I’ll bet I can find the ramp a young, eight-year-old me “built” out of rotted plywood (held together by nothing more than a few loose nails, duck tape, bubble gum and the will of God). There’s a bee nest outback of my apartment that needs a good poking with a long stick. And what better time to re-introduce “Rock Tag” (like regular Tag, but with more incentive to avoid being tagged “it”)?

Mandated health insurance ensures a hospital bed somewhere with my name on it and I want to get my money’s worth.

• So today’s Sports pages looked sports-ish, did they not? Day One of Pat Newell’s vacation, and the search for “agate” has already grown tiresome.
• Not the mention the fact that his vacation interrupts mine – no Summer Fridays Off for me until after Gus Macker. The sacrifices I make for this paper, I swear.
• Speaking of Gus Macker, we’re getting ready to put out our one and only Saturday edition of the year next weekend – hot off the presses first thing in the morning and into your hands courtside on East Main Street. This three-section special edition will be jam-packed with Gus Macker-related stories and photos, as well as the only place you’ll find the complete roster of players and court-by-court game assignments and brackets. And best of all? It’s FREE! And second best of all? You can get it for FREE directly for our hot little hands – Brian, Julian, Shawn, Brad and I will be donning paper-boy carrier bags that morning and passing them out to our adoring fans. I mean Gus Macker fans. Yeah, Gus Macker fans!
• Brian Golden just returned from the Chenango County Courthouse, where attorneys on both sides of the Wlasiuk murder case gave their closing statements today – all day. Again, unlike what you see on TV, where the final arguments are about 1:30 (and delivered with a fiery passion by Sam Waterston), these real-life closers are loooong. Hours and hours long. Tomorrow morning, the judge will give an equally lengthy “charge to the jurors,” and then it’s all in their hands. Wanna bet how long it will take them to come back with a verdict?

• Braved the chilly winds in East Side Park yesterday afternoon to watch Diane DiStefano throw her hat into the ring for Chenango County Judge – making her candidate number 3 (in order of announcement; some are trying to read endorsements into my every word these days). Although I knew her by reputation, I just had the pleasure of meeting Diane for the first time yesterday, and was quite impressed. I’m even more impressed that Chenango voters will have the choice among three qualified candidates for the position this fall. Howie Sullivan, you will truly be a hard act to follow!
• The defense rested in the Peter Wlasiuk murder trial this afternoon, after what amounted to less than two days of testimony. Although I didn’t get a chance to sit in on it myself, by all accounts this appears to be a slam-dunk, again, for the prosecution. I’d really, really hoped – from the news standpoint – that Peter would take the stand in his own defense this time. In your third murder trial, wouldn’t you think you get up there and profess your innocence in your own words? Who knows, maybe I’m just watching too much Law & Order, but I was hoping for something to spice up this murder trial repeat.
• Tomorrow is the start of Pat Newell’s vacation (he’ll be back in time for Gus Macker), making yours truly the sports editor for a few days. Luckily, there’s little to no local news on the sports front, and the Associated Press makes it pretty much paint by numbers. Which is a good thing, because as readers know, I’m clueless about sports in general. It’s baseball season, right?
• Evening Sun alum Melissa Stagnaro just dropped by the newsroom for a brief visit. Always nice when the kids come back home, especially when they’re bearing yogurt.

It’s so hot

Friday, June 22nd, 2012
Shawn Magrath

After two days of 90+ degree whether with such a high level of humidity that I could almost swim to work, today certainly feels much better. Thursday and Friday were hot – unbearably hot; I didn’t realize asphalt even had a liquid phase. But for all my complaining about the heat, the humidity, the sticky arms, the mid air explosions from birds catching on fire, I think I handled it pretty well. Like most people, I developed a close emotional bond with the A/C and the ceiling fan, and rekindled a deep-rooted hatred of my car’s leather seats and the seat belt buckle.

Frankly, what really comes to mind on hot days are the “It’s so hot…” jokes of Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, David Letterman, even Jimmy Fallon (who I’m not usually a fan of).

It’s so hot:
The National Weather Service has issued a fat guy in tank top warning
People are baking cookies on their dashboards
Somewhere in the US, a corn stalk turned into popcorn
Squirrels are pouring Gatorade on their nuts
I saw two trees fighting over a dog
I saw a funeral procession pull into a Dairy Queen
The nation is experiencing a heat wave, but we have plenty of shade under our 14 trillion dollar debt ceiling.

Kudos, gentlemen. Kudos.

It’s graduation weekend, so my heartiest congratulations to everyone moving on to the next stage in life (or “the real world” as Dad called it). I wish I was one of profound words of inspiration, encouragement and brilliance, but I just made a list of “It’s so hot” one-liners so it’s possibly best to save a stimulating speech for commencement speakers. Nevertheless, best of luck to all who are turning the tassel this weekend.

Dear Norwich

Today’s been one of those days where I’ve struggled to think of something to write. Most would refer to it as “writer’s block.” Unfortunately, if your job depends on the ability to write, it’s not as simple as just writer’s block. It means a real lack of productivity – something I’m fervently against. A reporter with writer’s block is the equivalent of a runner with a broken leg, a seeing-eye dog with cataracts, an EMT who misplaced the keys to the ambulance…

Certainly there’s plenty to write about: Round three of a very unpopular murder trial; a Father’s Day weekend full of (almost too many) things to do in the area; the chance of a large abandoned city property being spruced up downtown; businesses coming and going throughout the county; and my favorite local-ish story of the week, an SUV that narrowly fit through the doors of the Wegman’s in Johnson City and parked somewhere in the produce section – no one was hurt.

Of course there are things to write. How about a letter, just to change it up a little? Maybe a letter to Norwich; home sweet home, the place where I lay my head. The place I can’t wait to get out of, then can’t wait to return to when I’m gone:

Dear Norwich,

What’s happening to you Norwich? You use to have pride, self-esteem, be full of prosperity and you knew what it meant to take initiative and put effort into everything you do. Now, it seems that you spend to much time looking for a fast fix to complicated issues, quick to blame but slow to react. All too often, it seems you’ve lost your sense of decency; civility has little meaning. Even in a casual conversation outside the local convenience stores, you’ve adopted the “F-bomb” as part of your vernacular, using it as an adjective, verb, noun, pronoun, interjection – and I don’t think it’s intended to be a grammar lesson for the kids around you who are listening and, rest assured, learning.

Norwich, I don’t want to feel like I’m interrupting a pajama party everywhere I go. I agree, pajama bottoms are the epitome of comfort but when you’re out and about, would it kill you to put on pants? And maybe – even if it’s only faked – being a little more polite, or perhaps showing a little enthusiasm when you walk? I say put a little pep in your step, a little pride in your stride, instead of scuffing your feet like wounded livestock.

Really, why can’t you just pick up your feet?

Don’t get me wrong, Norwich. There’s still plenty to love about you and the good far outweighs the bad. You’re family oriented (for the most part), you’re beautiful, you put on some great shows throughout the year, you’re humble (again, for the most part); I’d like to think we have a pretty good relationship Norwich, and maybe I’m being a little hasty in pointing out some of your flaws. After all, nobody’s perfect.

I’m not asking too much, am I?

Sincerely,
Shawn

• Happy Flag Day, and all. Hope you remembered to fly Old Glory proud!

• Been a while since last we chatted, but it’s been pretty busy at Chenango County’s Hometown Daily, what with a Pageant of Bands, Mustang Rally, Dairy Day and some guy on trial for murder – again.

• That aside, I’m remiss in not mentioning earlier my trip down to the Chenango River Theatre in Greene to see Neil Simon’s hit “Broadway Bound” a couple weeks back. This is the last weekend for the show – with performances set for tonight, Friday and Saturday at 7:30, and a Sunday matinee at 2. As always, our neighbors to the south put on a stellar show, with professional equity actors in Broadway-worthy performances. “Broadway Bound” is part of Simon’s much-loved “BB” trilogy (that includes “Biloxi Blues” and “Brighton Beach Memoirs”), a semi-autobiographical look at Simon’s early life in 1940s New York. It tells the tale of Eugene and Stanley, brothers struggling (and nearly strangling) to become comedy writers for television. They’re surround by a cast of characters, literally, in their own family – their dad has been cheating on their mother, and their Socialist grandfather is always ready with a quip. When the two seek inspiration for their sketches, they need look no further than their own relations – who get lampooned hilariously, much to their consternation. Filled with rapid-paced dialogue and a quick wit, “Broadway Bound” is a fun trip down memory lane. Catch it if you can; like all Chenango River Theatre shows, it doesn’t disappoint!

• Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the annual recital for the Perkins School of the Arts in Norwich. Like the show down in Greene, the Perkins troupe is far more professional and talented than you might expect to see on a stage in a tiny upstate New York town, but wow … what an amazing group of young adults! From the music to the costumes to the lighting, no detail is left untouched as these dancers perfect their craft and show off the fruits of their efforts. Choreography, much like nuclear fusion, is a science well beyond my grasp – but at least with choreography I know it’s good when I see it. And with Amber, Mikey, Travis, Christina et. al behind the scenes, it is very, very good. Next up, the Donna Frech School of Dance’s annual recital this weekend (story was on Wednesday’s front page), another exceptionally talented group of young performers backed by an instructor who’s been at it for decades. We truly are lucky to have both of these gems available right here in our hometown. Almost makes me wanna dance …

• Which I’m probably not drunk enough to do in public, ever, but hey. I’m well into my summer of Fridays Off, so ya never know where the day might take me. Until next time, dear readers, have a great weekend!

Boxing the real loser in Pacquiao-Bradley fight

Monday, June 11th, 2012
Patrick Newell

I grew up loving the sport of boxing. Yes, there really was a time when meaningful fights were broadcasted on network television, and I was glued to my dad’s recliner the day or night of the big fights. I remember NBC with its afternoon fights and Marv Albert calling the action; Howard Cosell and Alex Wallau on ABC: and Tim Ryan along with Gil Clancy on CBS. All three networks made boxing an integral part of their sports programming. In the last 20 years, if you want to watch one of your boxing heroes, you need to shell out at least $40 for a pay-per-view. The marketing of mixed martial arts and its prevalent television presence has not helped boxing at all, and outrageously bad decisions like the one in Las Vegas Saturday night add another black mark. I eagerly awaited the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley matchup, and the fight didn’t start until after midnight on the East Coast. Pacquiao, a huge Boston Celtics fan, made a request for the fight to begin after the completion of the Heat-Celtics basketball game. Perhaps it was a bad omen for Pacquiao when his Celtics dropped the decisive game seven matchup.
Just to review quickly, Pacquiao is regarded among the best – if not the best – pound-for-pound boxers today. He was facing a young, hungry, and unbeaten Bradley, who was moving up a weight class to challenge for Pacquiao’s welterweight title. I watched every round with an attentive eye, and to my viewing, it was an easy decision to make. It was obvious to anyone watching that Pacquiao landed more punches, harder punches, and stalked a retreating Bradley throughout the fight. At no point did Bradley ride any substantial momentum, and at any point, one felt Pacquiao was one crisp combination away from ending the bout. Boxing punch statistics revealed that Pacquiao outlanded Bradley in 10 of 12 rounds, and by nearly 100 total punches. Some of those punches were set-up jabs, but the power shots landed also favored Pacquiao by a substantial margin.
What were two of the three judges looking at who gave Bradley seven out of 12 rounds? There are several criteria judges looking at when scoring a round: Aggression, ring generalship, and above all, clean punches landed lead that list. Pacquiao was the aggressor throughout the fight, he controlled the center of the ring, and as we mentioned, he landed the harder, more effective punches.
The second half of the fight, it was pointed out that Pacquiao coasted through the first 1 1/2 to two minutes of most rounds before flurrying hard over the last 60 to 90 seconds. During that time, Bradley would stick out a range-finding, pawing jab, his most utilized punch of the fight. It was a punch that rarely landed, and the final boxing statistics showed that Bradley landed less than 20 percent of his overall punches.
Watching the fight with Aida (my 100 percent Filipino partner), we stood up and stretched out after the final bell satisfied by another dominant performance by the pride of the Philippines. When the judges’ scores were read, we were both in shock. “How can this be? How can this happen?” Aida asked. I had no answer for her. I have seen some poor decisions over the years, but this was likely the worst since Roy Jones’ loss in the 1988 Olympic Games held in Seoul, Korea. Jones battered and beat up Korea’s own finalist for three blowout rounds, but was robbed of a decision.
Boxing already alienates its dwindling yet ardent supporters by forcing them to pay out big bucks to watch their favorite fighters. When those fighters (Pacquiao) are treated unjustly by the judging professionals, it casts further doubt on the future of the sport.
The only positive that came out of this robbery was Pacquiao’s classy acceptance of the loss and his graciousness toward Bradley. “Whatever we think of the result, we have to respect the decision,” Pacquiao said in his post-fight comments. “That’s boxing.”
That’s not the boxing I knew as a kid. Bradley comes away the winner and a new title strap to wear around his waist, but boxing is the real loser.

And this week’s plaque of recognition goes to…

Friday, June 8th, 2012
Shawn Magrath

I’m thinking about buying a drum set. I don’t have a whole lot of ambition to learn how to play, I just have neighbors I don’t really care for.

As far as news weeks go, it seems this week’s been pretty eventful at the Evening Sun. Big news in my coverage area includes consideration by the Town of Norwich to form its own fire department; the Pumpkin Festival is going to be a couple weeks earlier this year; and planning for a multi-million dollar affordable housing complex to be built in the State Street neighborhood is well underway. But this week’s completely distinguished, completely coveted (and completely made-up) plaque of recognition undoubtedly goes to fellow reporter Brian Golden for successfully putting together a newspaper on another Friday in Jeff’s absence. More impressive, he did it without the use of crayons, construction paper, and lots and lots of photocopying – I can’t say I would have been able to do the same. Oh, and he gets additional honors for his week-long coverage in some controversial murder trial or something like that…

How about a fun day at the airport to bounce back from such a busy week? Airport Day is Saturday and one needs not travel too far to see aerobatics exciting enough to make you wet your pants. I’ve never actually been to an Airport Day event, so I’m pretty worked up over this – it sounds like it’s going to be a great event and I’m so glad the county revived it. I’ve high expectations for the spectacle, most of them resembling scenes of Maverick barrel-rolling a fighter jet over the Pacific in the movie Top Gun… maybe I should lower the bar a little.

I read a strange article online last night of a Connecticut man who claims he was sleepwalking after being accused of robbing a woman at knife-point. I’ve heard of people doing odd things when sleepwalking before; one story of a woman driving to a nearby video store and renting a few movies (and not good movies. I think it was the Back to the Future trilogy). There’s another of a man who made a bowl of cereal to eat in bed and when he awoke in the morning, he found a trail of coco puffs leading from his kitchen to the bedroom. So sleep-robbery is possible I guess. I can hear the hands of criminals across the country slapping their forehead – Oh, if only OJ had thought of that. Maybe we’ll see an entertaining twist in the Wlasiuk trial this time around.

A new blog and my trip to NY

Friday, June 1st, 2012
Shawn Magrath

At long last, an updated blog. I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve put it off this week for no good reason.

My wife and I made a the drive to New York City last weekend, something that I dragged my feet about at first. Honestly, it was a blast and we fit right in with the rest of the tourists that crowded every other street in Manhattan – map in hand, camera around the neck, wallet sticking out of the back pocket, and walking while always looking straight up. It’s easy to spot a tourist in New York.

In two days, I think we managed to hit up the major attractions in Manhattan, from Central Park down to Wall St. – the highlight, I think, was a visit to the World Trade Center. Unfortunately, we couldn’t see the new memorial, which was barricaded by wooden walls and temporary construction banners. To see it, visitors need to request tickets in advance (something I didn’t know), my guess being that it’s an attempt for crowd control at an enormous construction site. In any case, we did get a close-up glimpse of the massive Freedom Tower, which is planned to grow taller still by more than 400 feet… I feel a nose bleed coming on already.

On another topic, Sherburne’s the place to be if you’re looking for something to do this Saturday. I’m pretty excited about this weekend’s Pageant of Bands. As a Sherburne-Earlville alumni, and former band geek trombone player, it’s something I look forward to every year and something I miss being a part of (because when I was in high school, nothing drew the ladies’ attention like a nerdy boy who played the trombone). Without lying, I could use the pick-up line, “Hey baby, I’m in a band and we’re pretty good.” In hindsight, that line might have worked better if I didn’t say it was the marching band… and I’m pretty sure the words “hey baby” didn’t do me any favors.

As an avid skeptic of the dumb sounding “Zombie Apocalypse,” I usually stay away from even mentioning the issue (though fellow reporter Brian Golden doesn’t shy from it); but recent events including the face-eating naked man in Florida, a Maryland college student who admitted to eating his roommate’s heart and brain, a “mysterious rash” breakout in a school in Hollywood, CA, and another flesh eating murderer in Canada, is more than enough to raise an eyebrow, even for a skeptic like me. Yet, as graphic and gruesome as these recent stories are, there’s reassurance; the Center for Disease Control officially denounced the existence of zombies this week. Whew – there you have it. If the government says it doesn’t exist, then it doesn’t exist, right? Personally, I don’t see this wave of twisted events as a sign of a zombie invasions as much as it is a rise in sick weirdos. Either way, it creates a tough new demographic of voters for Romney and Obama this campaign season.

* Could the third time be the charm for the Greene Trojans? Saturday afternoon we’ll be at the BAGSAI Softball Complex, located near Broome Community College, to cover the Trojans’ bid for a Section IV Class C softball title. Two years ago, a flash rainstorm at the most inopportune time led to a Seton Catholic Central bottom-of-the-seventh victory in the title game. A year before that, Tioga masterfully outplayed Greene for the title. Seniors Rebecca Hanrahan, Caitlin Willis, and Natalie Greene have seen just about all of the highs and lows the past four seasons at Greene. The highs being the trifecta of league championship victories; the lows, the disappointing sectional playoff losses. More so than the previous three seasons, this year’s group of Greene players, coached by Rick Smith, are a mix of young and old, but it is the veteran leadership of the longtime seniors – and even second-year player Taylor Ellis, also a senior – who have guided Greene to the cusp of that elusive championship. “(To win), it would be picture perfect for those girls, and no one deserves it more,” Smith said. “They’ve been great leaders and they are great kids.”

* Norwich sophomore Matt Murray won a Section IV title for the Tornado track and field team winning the 400-meter dash Thursday. A number one seed in the 400- and 200-meter races, Murray won his semifinals race in the 200, but was clearly worn down from the heavy workload Thursday evening running to a sixth in the 200 finals. Still, Murray is heading to the state meet for the first time, and he will be joined by teammates Nate Ashton, Nuri Harper, and Jaime Zieno as part of the 3,200-meter relay. The record-breaking foursome met the state meet qualifying standard at last week’s Class B sectional meet, so they were moving on regardless of their performance at yesterday’s qualifier. By the way, the NHS relay team placed fifth in 8:09, a time that is still 17 seconds faster than the established school-record time at the beginning of the 2012 season. Norwich sophomore Brooke Bonney will also make an appearance at the state meet winning the Division II shot put title and placing second overall.

* B-G/Afton freshman Julia Knapp qualified for the state meet in three events. She was second overall in the 100-meter hurdles and long jump, and was third in the 400-meter hurdles, while placing first in Division II in all three events. B-GA’s Connor Fuller (steeplechase), and G-MU’s Eddie Ray Cotton (200-meter dash) and Christina Hawkins (discus) also qualified for the state meet.

*Ten years into its new home in Section III, Sherburne-Earlville’s baseball team played for its first Section III title Thursday evening. The Marauders, who became one of the best teams on the diamond in the Susquenango Association its final years in Section IV, have continued to produce consistent winning teams under the direction of head coach Brian Hicks. The Marauders finished their regular season with an 8-2 record in division play, and that included a pair of victories over state-ranked teams. After two successful outcomes in postseason play, S-E’s season came to close last night at Alliance Bank Stadium losing to Cazenovia. Congratualations to the Marauders on an outstanding season.
