Here & There Column 12-31-13

Another Year Of  Multi-Layered Govt.

    The clock is ticking and within hours we approach a new year with many resolutions, promises and hopes for an improved economy we question government in Sullivan County and ask if they understanding the realities that multi-layered government is antiquated?
    The Hudson Valley Pattern For Progress has previously issued a "White Paper" from their Government Efficiency Task Force titled  "Government Efficiency In the Hudson Valley-Creating  A Positive Approach to Change."
    If politicians running our local governments have not read this report then their heads must be buried in sand.
    The five-page detailed report truly would help local governments ease the many burdens they face today with having to downsize, consolidate and do away with much of the duplication of services they presently have. 
    The report points out that it's a clear fact that much of "New York State's multi-layered form of government is viewed as antiquated, arcane and redundant."
    The report clearly states that "our conglomeration of villages, towns, counties and the State plus overlapping independent school and special districts drives higher costs and highly visible service inefficiencies."
    In addition this five page detailed sheet notes  that these "inefficiencies lead residents to question the utility of this outdated system," and "the cost of maintaining so many units of government with multiple levels and overlaps is no longer sustainable."
    Lets just briefly look at these multiple levels and overlaps here in  Sullivan County......in the Town of  Thompson we have the Town government and the Village of Monticello government, in the Town of Fallsburg we have the Fallsburg government and the Village of Woodridge government, in the Town of Liberty we have both the town and village governments, in the Town of Mamakating we have the town and Village of Bloomingburg governments and the Village of Jeffersonville shares government with the Town of Callicoon.
    Does the taxpayer in Sullivan County with a population of 75,828 get the benefit of 1 county government, 15 township governments, five village governments, 8 school districts, 13 fire protection districts, 45 lighting districts, 26 sewer district and 20 water districts?
    It's up to the folks that pay the bills in this county to tell these many forms of government to cooperate, have shared services, consolidate, dissolve and to do away with so much duplication.    
  A Happy, Healthy and Wealthy New Year to everyone.

                                                       Ed's Outlook

  Sponsorship of sporting events is the lifeline to survival and the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) and the travel website HotelPlanner.com have entered into a sponsorship agreement which makes HotelPlanner.com the organization's offical travel partner.
  PBA Commissioner Tom Clark noted that, "our partnership with HotelPlanner.com is a natural because, like other sports tours, most of our members who compete on our PBA, PBA Intrernational, PBA50 and PBA Regional Tours travel extensively."
  "As a sports organization that is involved in staging approximately 220 tournaments around the world during the year, economic travel is something that benefits our members, our legion of loyal fans, and all facets of our business operations," Clark said. 
  HotelPlanner.com is a leading providere of online services to the global hotel sales market. Its technology ensures the lowest rates by allowing customers to receive quotes  online directly from hotel group sales managers. HotelPlanner.com's promise is "we guarantee the lowest group rates or we'll pay for your hotel room."

                                                          Bowling Tip
                                                     By Mike Luongo

  Lane conditions have become very soft and that combination with today's bowling balls has led to high scoring conditions making the majority of today's bowlers very complacent about working on their physical game.
  This week's tip is a reminder that although there are so many aggressive, high performance balls available, the main component of the sport is having a sharp game and becoming a good shot maker.
  The sport of bowling is attempting to make a comeback as can be seen in some of the newer Sport Bowling Leagues and understanding how to use today's bowling balls is only part of the equation.
  For those bowlers who want to maximize their potential in this sport, I cannot stress enough the importance of finding a qualified and certified bowling instructor. Even more preferable, you should work with an instructor who uses video technology to completely analyze your game.
  The video technology gives the instructor the ability to replay a student's shots in slow motion, show them what adjustments need to be made and compare them to the highest caliber bowlers in the world.
  The knowledge you gain from a Certified Instructor is knowledge that will be useful to you and will stay with you throughout your bowling life.

 XBowling Brings Future To Industry

  The newest concept in the sport of Bowling is XBowling where you can bowl, have fun and win prizes on your Android phone.
  Brunswick Bowling and the Sports Challenge Network (SCN) has just announced that their companies have reached an agreement to work together to bring next generation social mobile gaming technology to Brunswick's bowling center customers worldwide.
  Brunswick and SCN are providing access to the XBowling platform at no incremental cost to the bowling centers and no fees for installation, training, marketing, technical support and  maintenance. 
  XBowling is a socail mobile application that offers bowlers an opportunity to engage in new types of gaming experiences at bowling centers with players competing against each other in live head-to-head challenges while bowling in the same center or multiple centers.
  Bowlers will also be able to compete against games previously bowled and posted on the XBowling network and they can also enter solo challenges such as XBowl Mania, Lotto Bowl or Beat Your Average.
  XBowling also offers players the opportunity to win points every time they play through gameplay, skill and social interactions, allowing them to build their XBowling leaderboard status and redeem accumulated points for merchandise and sports gear through the App or the web.
  Brunswick's president Brent Perrier noted that, "XBowling helps bring the future to the bowling industry," and that the gaming experience provides a new level of entertainment to bowlers. 
  Timothy J. Minard, founder and CEO of SCN said the partnership, "will enhance the bowling experience for all ages and skill levels."
  XBowling is currently available on Apple IoS and Google Android devices via free downloads from the App store and Google Play.

                                                           Ed's Outlook

    There are some needed changes in the televised Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Sunday afternoon telecasts.
  Hearing many bowlers complain about the "blind bowling" and other trick shot contests as being a complete waste of time......we agree.
  What the PBA should have done was have a five-bowler stepladder final instead of having bowling fans sit through these stupid contests that are meaningless  before the championship match is played. 
  Don't know what these folks at the PBA are thinking about.

                                                      Section PBA Title

  Cheektowaga New York's Ryan Ciminelli had the left side of the lane all to himself last Sunday afternoon as he defeated Dom Barrett, 258-203 to win the Professional Bowlers Association Chameleon Championship at the third World Series of Bowling V event in Las Vegas.
  Starting in the fourth position Ryan reached the championship round by defeating Tom Smallwood 255-197 and Brian Kretzer  235-179. 
  This Sunday's 1 p.m. ESPN  Scorpion Championship finals will feature Marshall Kent,  Tom Smallwood, Josh Blanchard and Tommy Jones.

                                                              Bowling Tip
                                                            By Mike Luongo

  Bowlers: This weeks tip will help you execute and repeat good shots by having your body set properly so that you can use the laws of physics to roll the ball and eliminate tension in your swing.
  As I've mentioned in previous columns, too much upper body movement makes it velry difficult to repeat shots.
  The purpose of the stance is to place the body in an athletic position, eliminate all unnecessary movements during the approach and reduce tension.
  Resting forearms against the body, in the stance, will help reduce tension in the upper body. 
  How do we do this?
  Here are the four steps in the proper order for setting posture.
  1. Set the feet (toward your break point).
  2. Set your head (tilted over the ball).
  3. Set your posterior (this is your balance point as you are swinging a heavy object).
  4. Set the ball position close as noted above
  You are now in position to start a smooth approach. Maintain your body position and let the ball swing under your shoulder. You may find this easy to repeat shot after shot.
  Tension will not be eliminated if your ball does not fit.

Jester Leads Fall Collegiate  Baseball Team

  Jester played mostly shortstop and filled in at second base for TC3.
  He is a Sports Management major at Tompkins Cortland Community College. 
  Carroll indicated he sees a big 2014 spring season for Jester which the Panthers open on March 19 at Cumberland Community College at Vineland, New Jersey.

Bowling Highlights Column 12-13-13



 Barnes Win Thriller At Viper Event

                             

  A 7-10 split in the 10th frame by Cheektowaga New York's Ryan Ciminelli proved very costly in the Professional Bowers Association (PBA)  Championshjp last Sunday afternoon and Double Oak, Texas Chris Barnes took advantage to win his 16th career title, 231-212. 
  This is Barnes second PBA Tour victory of the 2012-13 season.
  Ciminelli was the top qualifier in this the second of seven telecasts from the  PBA World Series of Bowling V from Las Vegas, Nev. 
  The four PBA bowlers to gain the top four slots included Jason Belmonte from Australia who finished fourth winning $5,000, Stuart Williams from England who finished third winning $7,000, Ciminelli who won $10,000 and Barnes who took home the top prize of $20,000.
  The bowlers and bowling fans watching these events are giving good grades to the PBA using a unique "Blue Oil" on the lanes to help television viewers and on-site fans see the otherwise invisible lane conditioning pattern. 
  Williams stated the 1 p.m. ESPN show with a 203-194 victory over Belmonte, Barnes eliminated Belmonte 200-171 to advance to the title match.
  In the opening frames of the championship match it looked like Ciminelli was headed towards victory as he took a 15-pin lead after five frames, striking on his five five shots and he maintained his lead into the 10th frame when disaster struck. He left the 7-10 split on a light pocket hit and nearly converted the spare when he bounced the 7 pin out of the pit in front of the 10 pin.
  Barnes, working on strikes in the eighth and ninth frames, then locked up the title with two more strikes in his 10th frame. 
  Many PBA professionals are making predictions that Ciminelli would return to the winner's circle soon as he's trying to step in as the premier left-hander on tour.
  This coming Sunday's Chameleon Championship at 1 p.m. on ESPN includes top qualifier Dom Barrett from England, No. 2 qualifier Brian Kretzer of Dayton, Ohio, No. 3 qualifier Ciminelli and No. 4 qualifier Tom Smallwood of Saginaw, Mich.

  Bowling Tip
  By Mike Luongo

  Bowlers: This weeks tip will focus on Bowling Ball Maintenance for all types of bowling balls. We will focus on the bowling balls used in the modern era but we must point out that all balls should be cleaned and maintained after each use.
  We will start with plastic balls, used by new and recreational bowlers and by many bowlers as a spare ball.
  Plastic balls are not porous but due to the high viscosity oils used today the oil will build up on the balls and eliminate any contact with the lane. You can use any car care product or household cleaner to clean the ball very easily. Plain urethane balls with no additives are showing popularity with today's lane conditions but like plastic balls they are porous and will not absorb oil and dirt. You can use the above products to clean the oil and dirt off the ball. However, if you would like to keep the ball dull, use an abrasive pad.
  The most common equipment used by league and competitive bowlers is a urethane based bal with additives commonly known as reactive or particle balls. Many different chemicals are used as reactive additives and particles, but, since each company uses chemicals from different suppliers they must be maintained differently.
  With high performance balls you should towel the ball off after each shot during use and clean the ball as soon as possible at the end of each bowling session. 
  There are several ways to clean a high performance ball. If the ball is dull and you would like to keep it that way, you can use warm water, distergent and a gray or burgendy pad (3M makes them) or the back of a scrubber sponge. 
  If your ball does not have a dull surface and you would like to keep it the same you can use dish detergent with a rag (no abrasive) or a generic ball cleaner that is made for bowling balls and sold in bowling pro shops. 
  Several companies sell products to match the out-of-box finish if desired.

Tri-Valley Edges the Manor 53-46

RIVALRY CONTINUES AT  MANOR  
TRI-VALLEY 53-LIV MANOR 46
    

   The Livingston Manor varsity boys basketball team always plays tough at home and a growing rivalry continued this past Friday night with Tri-Valley edging the Wildcats 53-46.
  Manor's height advantage played a leading role especially in the first quarter of play as  the Wildcats raced out to a 7-0 lead with 3:39 left on the clock and it wasn't until 3:32 that the Bears scored their first two points.
  Livingston  Manor went on to outscore Tri-Valley 13-9 in first quarter play.
  An aggressive second quarter defense by the Bears reversed the scoring in favor of Tri-Valley as the Bears offense outscored the Wildcats 13-4 off hoops by Zack Nilsen, Dion Lynch, Thomas Mungeer and Justin Swarthout.
  Following the Bears halftime lead of 22-17 Tri-Valley outscored the Manor 21-18 in the third quarter. In that third quarter Wildcats guard  Dillion Taggert scoring two three pointers.
  Livingston Manor outscored Tri-Valley 11-10 in the final eight minutes of play.
  Turnovers, which could be attributed to the Bears strong defense, played a big factor in this game with the Wildcats committing 35 miscues to Tri-Valley's 11. 
  Lack of practice due to snow days and cancellation of games made both teams look a little rusty. This was the Bears second game following a win in the Walton Winter Tournament which will place them in the championship game against Walton  scheduled for January 6 at Walton. 
  Livingston Manor has had three games and posts a 1-2 record. 
  Tri-Valley guard Sam Tingley had three three-pointers and led the scoring for his team with 11 points. Jesus Lozada, Mike Post, Justin Swarthout and Devin Donnelley each scored seven points for the Bears.
  Leading scorer for both teams was the Manor's Dillon Taggert with 13 points off three three-pointers and four foul shots. Terrance Lockhart added 11 points and David Dutcher 10 for the Wildcats. 
  Livingston Manor coach Charlie Hicks was pleased with his teams first half of play saying, "I was excited about the way we played as we played last night in a real physical fast paced game and you could see the kind of toll it  took and we stated to peter out a little bit after the first quarter."
  Hicks pointed out that "he (Brian Tingley) started running double teams of five every three to five minutes as he knew we were getting tired and he kept his guys fresh as a couple of our key guys, big men and point guard, got into foul trouble."
  "Our inexperience and fatigue took its toll," Hicks added. 
  The Manor coach pointed out that the present team is comprised of  "inexperienced juniors and seniors and I think we will be alright as soon as we find the right mix of guards to get the ball into our big centers."
  Tri-Valley coach Brian Tingley in commenting on his teams first half of play said, "we didn't expect the 3-2 zone from them as we have seen them play the 3-2 half-court back to a 2-3 zone."
  "We haven't had a lot of practice with snow days and we were a bit rusty in the first half," he pointed out. 
   Tingley had praise for the Bears defense and noted, "we played everybody and wanted to speed it up and get up and down fast  and tire them out."
   Asked if he was surprised by Manor's first quarter of play Tingley pointed out, "they are always tough here  and they are not going to come out and lay down."
  Tingley said he was satisfied with this their second game win but if weather had cooperated they would have had five games completed on this date.

  Wurtsboro bowler James Durland and Grahamsville kegler Kyle Matthews each recorded their first career 300 games recently in leagues at the Newburgh Tarsio Lanes and Kiamesha Lanes.
  Twenty-one year-old Durland recorded his perfect 12-strikes-in-a-row on November 21 in the three-person Bruce Perry Mixed league in Newburgh on lanes 25 and 26 using a Storm IQ Tour Pearl bowling ball.
  He bowls for the Pogo's Family Pro Shop team with Jason and Danielle Pogozelski.
  He has no 800 series to this date.
  James is averaging 231 in the Wednesday Men's league at Kiamesha  Lanes and 215 in the Newburgh league.
  Durland has been bowling for some 16 years starting out in the Saturday Morning Youth leagues at Kiamesha Lanes and is a 2010 graduate of Monticello High School. He is currently not enrolled in college but attended and bowled for Union College in Kentucky last year. 
  When asked about how many strikes were in the pocket he stated, "first 11 in the pocket and the 12th strike crossed over exactly the same way my mother shot her first 300."
  Single with no children James is employed at Kaz's Wines and Liquor store in the Shop Rite Plaza in Monticello and at Pogo's Family Pro Shop at Tarsio Lanes in Newburgh. 
  Thirty-four year-old Kyle Matthews scored  his 300 in the November 27 Wednesday Men's league at Kiamesha Lanes on lanes 9 and 10 using a Storm Sync bowling ball.
  Kyle bowls with the Ellenville Beer Store and team mates Chris Parken, Charlie Tuttle and Dennis Matthews.
  He maintains a 219 average in this the only league he bowls in. To this date he has not recorded any 800 series. 
  Bowling for some 18 years he reported to us that all strikes were in the pocket.
  Single with two children Kyle is self employed. 

                                       Malott Wins The 
                                       Cheetah Title
                                           

  In the first of seven telecasts from the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) World Series of Bowling V at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Bowling Center in Las Vegas , Wes Malott last Sunday defeated top qualifier Parker Bohn III in the title match 243-169.
  This championship also featured the use of a highly-visible blue oil on the lanes for the first time in PBA history.
  To get into the championship match Malott defeated Clara Guerrero 214-208 and Pete Weber 288-242.
  Two large splits hurt Bohn early in the match.
  The win was Malott's second consecutive title.
  The Viper Championship will be held Sunday at 1 p.m. on ESPN.

                                               The Bowling Tip
                                              By Mike Luongo

  Bowlers: One of the previous tips was designed to help you achieve the correct body position to properly execute a bowling shot and be able to repeat it.
  The week, we will cover the release, information that will help bowlers of all levels.
  A properly executed release is possibly one of the most misunderstood parts of a bowling shot. Most bowlers tend to muscle the ball through the release zone, either accelerating or decelerating on the downswing. The proper release for all bowlers, (whether you are a six-year-old with a conventional grip or an accomplished bowler with many years experience) can be executed by letting gravity bring the ball from the top of the swing through the release zone with no interference from your arm or shoulder muscles. 
  If the ball fits properly, the gravity will take it off your hand at the right time providing your body is in the proper position. Any rotation on the ball should come from your hand only.....not your arm.
  Using the proper technique will allow you to get as much rotation on the ball as desired.
  Note, however, if your ball does not fit properly, it will require excessive grip pressure to hold on to which will make the release harder to execute.
  Gravity can be your best friend or worst enemy depending on how you use it.

Here & There Column 12-3-13


 Bringing Attention To Autism

  Seventeen-year-old Sullivan West senior Chrissy Lare deserves a big thank you and a huge pat on the back for her recent efforts in bringing attention to autism and for conducting the Walk For Autism and the Zumbathon that raised almost $3,500.
  It takes people to step up to the plate in this fight and Chrissy accomplished what she started out to do. 
  In a recent article about the Zumbathon and in a list of Sullivan County businesses who donated various baskets and gift certificates two names that did not make the published list included the Red Door Consignment Shop and a  monetary donation also made by the Sullivan County Wide CSEA Executive Board.
  Autism and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHT) is a part of many children's lives but the struggle they face on a daily basis is thankfully not being overlooked by our medical and educational systems.
  In order to highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about autism, the Autism Society gives a special opportunity for everyone to educate the public about autism and issues within the autism community.  
  People with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors (may act without thinking what the result will be), or they may be overly active.
  There is no cure for ADHD but it can be successfully managed and some symptoms may improve as the child ages.  
  When we have conversation with educators about autism they point out that something as simple as going to the movies is not an option for many families affected by autism.
  Medical and educational experts note that autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person's ability to communicate and interact with others.     
  While doing some research about autism it was shocking to learn that the Autism Society estimates that the lifetime cost of caring for a child with autism ranges from $3.5 million to $5 million and that the United States is facing almost $90 billion annually in costs for autism. 
  With strong dedication by those in the medical field and educational systems like BOCES is has become very clear that autism is treatable. 
  Children do not "outgrow" autism but studies show that early diagnosis and intervention lead to significantly improved outcomes. 
   The Autism Society, the nation's leading grassroots autism organization, exists to improve the lives of all affected by autism. 
  Each year, people with autism, families and professionals volunteer thousands of hours to help the  Autism Society achieve its mission of serving all those affected by autism.
  The Autism Society can be contacted at 4340 East-West Hwy, Suite 350, Bethseda, Maryland 20814.
  A big thank you to all who help create and provide services that will advocate the rights of all people with autism to live fulfilling and interdependent lives,
