'CATS CAN'T FIND A BIG HIT

Tri-City's offense stalls in key situations in a loss to Lake Monsters

Friday, August 22, 2014,   Page: B1

Troy
The Tri-City ValleyCats came into Thursday night sitting pretty with an eight-game lead in the Stedler Division of the New York-Penn League, so if there were ever a time they could get away with losing three straight, it would be now.
But even with a playoff berth well within reach, with just 11 regular-season games to go, they have to be a bit concerned with their offense, which struggled for the second consecutive night.
Against the Vermont Lake Monsters (28-37), a team with not much to p...

Friday, August 22, 2014,   Page: D2

Troy
The City Council is approaching the end of its hearings on the demolitions performed at King Street and the King Fuels site in South Troy.
The council voted 5-3 Thursday night at its Finance Committee meeting to issue legislative subpoenas for Mayor Lou Rosamilia, Deputy Mayor Peter Ryan and Corporation Counsel Ian Silverman. The three city officials, however, had previously agreed to appear.
Plans were to have the trio testify Aug. 28, but that fell apart when Councilwoman Lynn Kopka no...

$40M SCHOOL CUT MULLED

Proposal for Albany High School drops to $200M, but would take years longer

Friday, August 22, 2014,   Page: D1

Albany
The City School District of Albany is eyeing a scaled-back renovation plan for Albany High School that could shave as much as $40 million off the price tag of outright replacing the 40-year-old building.
The new roughly $200 million proposal, however, would take significantly longer to complete -- stretching construction for as long as seven years in order to maximize state aid and drive down the share of the cost paid by city taxpayers, the district's consultant said Thursday.
Represe...

RODGER'S QUICK TAKE

Friday, August 22, 2014,   Page: B2

I want to see Marylou Whitney in the winner's circle on Saturday after the Travers. She owns Viva Majorca, who is not anywhere close to being one of the favorites, but it's still a very good horse that keeps improving. Last time Marylou was in the winner's circle after the Midsummer Derby was 2004 with Birdstone in a torrential downpour. We were singing in the rain with Marylou and Nick Zito. That was one of my favorite Travers. Let's have a flashback with Marylou celebrating, but without the ra...

BURNT HILLS' MCGUIRE NOW A FAN

Friday, August 22, 2014,   Page: B1

Bob McGuire put plenty of mileage on his vehicles at the end of each season serving as athletic director at Burnt Hills. Many times, he attended multiple events in a day. It came with the territory, and it was a memorable perk of running a highly successful athletic program.
This fall, McGuire will be following Burnt Hills athletics as a fan after turning in 18 years as athletic director. Joe Scalise, who ran the Mohonasen program for nine years, is now in charge at Burnt Hills.
"I won't be dr...

TOP OLDER FILLIES TAKE STAGE FOR PERSONAL ENSIGN

Close Hatches set to go up against Princess of Sylmar

Friday, August 22, 2014,   Page: B1

Saratoga Springs
The race of Travers weekend could very well come right before Travers weekend begins.
Friday afternoon at Saratoga Race Course, the best older fillies on the East Coast will slug it out in the Grade I, $500,000 Personal Ensign. While many people are getting revved up for Saturday's Travers Stakes, it might be a good idea to take a long look at the 11/8-mile race that renews the rivalry between the Bill Mott-trained Close Hatches and the very popular Princess of Sylmar.
They a...

MANY FINGERS POINT OVER DEBATES

Cuomo pressed on upcoming dates, while Hawkins questions Astorino's stance

Friday, August 22, 2014,   Page: A3

Albany
Before the debates, we have the debates over the debates.
That political axiom is in full effect this week as Gov. Andrew Cuomo's three most prominent opponents needle him for his refusal to agree to debates with any of them.
While Cuomo's Democratic primary opponent Zephyr Teachout has been sounding that theme for weeks, it was hammered home Thursday by Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino, whose spokeswoman Jessica Proud said Cuomo's aversion to debating Teachout was due t...
