Referee issue may affect basketball season

DUNDEE--Dundee Central School District Superintendent Kelly Houck announced during the Thursday, Nov. 14 school board meeting that referee issues may impact the boys varsity basketball season for every school district in Section V, which includes Yates County. Houck said that she has already been advised by section officials to at least expect a delay to the season. "Be prepared for a very long delay for the season and maybe no season at all," Houck told the school board. Houck said that referees, who are all members of the Rochester District Basketball Officials Board 60, which is in turn a member of the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials, Inc., have refused to provide their availability to games for this season with the beginning only two weeks away.

Cider is all about personal taste

FINGER LAKES--The region's interest in hard cider and the apple varieties that, like grape varietals, make it distinctive, has spurred new interest in orchards grown for cider rather than for lunchboxes, applesauce and pies.

Bail law draws more criticism

ALBANY (AP) -- State Republicans announced legislation and decried an overhaul to New York's bail law Thursday, Nov. 7, deepening a political battle as widespread changes to the state's criminal justice system go into effect at the beginning of next year.
