Do we really need these big new stores?

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Well, it appears that the new CVS in Burnt Hills is nearing completion. It’s an awe-inspiring spectacle on the downtown Burnt Hills skyline. Why so enormous? It looks as if they have built a 12-stall stable for a one-horse town. Don`t get me wrong, some change is good. But this is like the Taj Mahal. Aside from needing to be careful in the parking lot, what is wrong with the old CVS? Progress, they say. I say “ridiculous.”This town hasn’t changed much in the 40-plus years I’ve known it and lived in it. I think it`s fair to say that the vast majority of people who live here find that we like it that way. It’s far enough out to not have big city hassles, but close enough to Glenville to have everything within reach.I remember the building next to the current CVS (soon to be the old CVS)  as Veeder & Yelverton. It was a small store and pharmacy, which if I remember correctly back to my youth had a large painted sign on the side stating, “We Deliver Rx.” Now this old complex of small retail units is slowly being vacated. No doubt, it’s most likely for one of those new state-of-the-art Stewarts Shops. We need that like a hole in the head. Anyone trying to get back on to Route 50 at rush hour or when the schools let out know it`s like Russian roulette.So, we stand poised on the doorstep of progress with a new, gargantuan CVS and, please no, but I fear another Stewarts on the opposite corner. Who thought this was a great idea I`ll never know. Will they deliver progress?Brian BaldwinBurnt HillsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img

PCL 4-Day Tournament….. Jaguars lose late wickets after restricting Prides

first_imgTHE Guyana Jaguars led Barbados Pride by 55 runs with eight second innings wickets in hand at the end of the penultimate day of the Day/Night fourth round Regional Four-Day Championship fixture.Batting a second time,the hosts reached 32-2, when bails were lifted at 22:20hrs last evening at the Guyana National Stadium.Opener,Shimron Hetymer,and night watchman Gudakesh Motie will resume today on 14 and one respectively.After bowling the visitors out for 288, the hosts struggled in their second innings, and in the closing stages, Rajendra Chandrika (0) and Leon Johnson (13) squandered their wickets to hand the Barbadians the advantage.Earlier, Test batsman Shai Hope (70) and Royston Chase (57) stroked contrasting half-centuries but the Jaguars’ bowlers fought back to secure a slim 23-run first innings lead.Left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul was the main wicket-taker in the hosts’ bowling attack with 4-48. He received support from fellow left-arm spinner Motie (2-55) and pacer Keon Joseph (2-70). Medium pacers Raymon Reifer and Christopher Barnwell were the other successful bowlers.AT the start of the day, Hope and Shamarh Brooks continued from their overnight score of 48-2, and maintained their intent of frustrating the Guyanese, taking their third-wicket partnership to 83.They succeeded for 58 minutes into the day’s play, and built on their solid platform with relative ease, facing little pressure either from the Guyanese bowlers or from the pink ball that did not do much in the air.Veerasmmy PermaulWhile Shivnarine Chanderpaul was guilty of a dropped catch when he gave Hope a life on 30, at first slip off the lively Joseph, Reifer bowled a terrible spell in which he struggled for line and length, and bowled a number of no-balls.Both batsmen were allowed to score freely until Motie ended the partnership when he had the 28-year-old Brooks caught at the wicket for 41. His innings lasted for 79 balls, 119 minutes, and he reached the boundary on seven occasions.Royston Chase joined Hope and greeted Joseph with three fours:two off of edges and one was an authoritative cover drive,all in one over.He then lofted Motie over the long on boundary before Hope registered his seventh fifty at this level by lifting Motie for a six over the long-on boundary. His fifty came up off 126 balls, 165 minutes, with eight fours and a six.The West Indies pair continued in solid fashion, with Chase, who earlier in the year became the fourth West indies player to score a century and take five wickets in a Test (137 not out and 5-121 against India), in particular quick to pounce on anything that was short or wide.The 24-year-old glided his way to a half-century that seemed to come far too easily, off just 74 balls, with seven fours and two sixes.However, Permaul broke the 77-run stand on the stroke of dinner when Chase played forward, and in the process overbalanced, allowing Anthony Bramble to pull off a neat stumping. He batted for 91 minutes and faced 93 balls.After the break, the 23-year-old Hope and Shane Dowrich made the most of ideal batting conditions and frustrated the Guyanese attack for 70 minutes before the hosts broke through, when Permaul removed Hope, through a top-edged sweep. His innings spanned 288 minutes, 231 balls, inclusive of 10 fours and a six.Jonathan Carter was then dismissed, bowled by Motie without scoring, after which the second new ball was taken at the 89th over, and although it was a tough slog for the pacers, Joseph was impressive in his diligence. His eye-catching pace accounted for the removal of Dowrich (44), with the final ball of the second session.Justin Greaves was then greeted with a vicious bouncer from Joseph, who was unlucky not to add to his wicket tally, after regulation catches offered by Stoute were put down by Barnwell and Leon Johnson respectively in the slip corridor.However, Greaves (20) and Stoute (26), were both removed in quick succession by Permaul before Barnwell trapped last man, Kemar Roach leg before wicket.The hosts were in immediate trouble when discarded West Indies opener Chandrika was trapped leg before wicket by the first ball of the innings from Roach.Hetymer, who survived a chance on three, and together with Johnson took the score to 28 before Johnson was taken at extra cover off Chase.However, the former West Indies Under-19 captain and Motie survived to the end.BARBADOS Pride 1st innings (O/N 38-2)K Brathwaite c wk Bramble b Joseph 6A Alleyne c Chandrika b Reifer 8S Hope c Johnson b Permaul 70S Brooks c wk Bramble b Motie 41R Chase st Bramble b Permaul 57S Dowrich c Hetymer b Joseph 44J Carter b Motie 0K Stoute lbw b Permaul 26J Greaves b Permaul 20K Roach lbw b Barnwell 1J Warrican not out 1Extras: (nb-9, b-5) 14Total: (all out; 104.1 overs) 288Fall of Wickets: 1-15, 2-17, 3-100, 4-177, 5-210, 6-210, 7-243, 8-277, 9-286, 10-288Bowlers: Joseph 20-2-70-2, Reifer 17-44-59-1, Barnwell 9.1-1-31-1, Permaul 34-16-68-4, Motie 24-10-55-2GUYANA JAGUARS 2nd inningsR Chandrika lbw b Roach 0S Hetymer not out 14L Johnson c Brooks b Chase 13G Motie not out 1Extras: (nb-4) 4Total: (for the loss of two wickets; 10 overs) 32Fall of Wickets: 1-0, 2-28Bowlers: Roach 5-1-14-1, Chase 5-1-18-1last_img read more

Roberts, Marlowe re-sign with Bills day after getting cut

first_img LIVE TV First Published: 7th September, 2020 10:58 IST Associated Press Television News COMMENT Receiver Andre Roberts and safety Dean Marlowe were back with the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, a day after being cut.The two were signed and added to the 53-player roster after the Bills freed up two spots by placing starting guard Jon Feliciano and rookie receiver Isaiah Hodgins on injured reserve. Feliciano is expected to miss another six weeks with a torn pectoral muscle, and Hodgins was bothered by a shoulder injury in training camp.The Bills made plans to re-sign Roberts and Marlowe after cutting them in order to keep Feliciano and Hodgins on the roster into Sunday. Under NFL rules, Feliciano and Hodgins are now eligible to return this season.Roberts doubles as Buffalo’s punt and kickoff returner. He’s back for a second season with the Bills and 11th in the NFL. He earned an All-Pro special teams selection in 2018, and was voted to the Pro Bowl in each of the past two seasons.Marlowe returns for a third season in Buffalo after establishing himself as a primary backup to Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer. Buffalo was down to just three safeties after cutting Marlowe.Buffalo also signed 17 players to its practice squad, including running back Christian Wade who is exempt from being counted on the roster because he is part of the NFL’s International Player Pathway program. The 29-year-old Wade played professional rugby in his native England, and was assigned to the Bills by the league last year.The other 16 players signed to the practice squad were all players cut by Buffalo on Saturday. They include former Canadian Football League receiver Duke Williams, and linebacker Andre Smith, who was acquired in a trade with Carolina last week.
