McDougal is 29, not 26. He won the Hannford (aka Hudson Mohawk) Half Marathon, out dueling O'Connor, 4 weeks ago.

This is the same piece of trash that should have been dismissed back in 1996:

Glans was the subject of a $60 million lawsuit filed against both the county and the town of Wilton after he lost control of his patrol car and crashed into Douglas H. McEachron’s car in March 1996. Glans was driving at more than 60 mph at the time of the collision, three times the local speed limit. McEachron, a father of six, suffered a traumatic brain injury and lost his sight. One of his children was appointed as his legal guardian following the crash.

The city and the county agreed to pay a $6 million settlement to McEachron’s family. Though a jury found Glans to be negligent, he was not required to pay any part of the settlement.

Interesting that McCarthy doesn't address the misconduct and maladministration claims. They can dodge it in the press ,but not in NYS Supreme Court. If I was John Scherer or Mark Kazmierczak, I'd be more than a little nervous knowing I was going to have to testify in front of a SC judge on this matter.

The airport already accepts private jets, as cited in the Paisley issue, or anyone who looks skyward during track season knows. So if things remain the same, the problem still exists. And trees grow, as will the problem if not dealt with.

I have no issue with this position, and I'm not sure if this column is supposed to represent "opinion" or "reporting". But since the article lists the author as a "Gazette Reporter", it would have been nice to include some other facts, like recent polling showing 71% of respondents are against the name change, down from 89% in 1992. That doesn't make them right, but it does make MacAdam wrong when he states the "groundswell of support" to change the name. The fact is, less than 1 in 4 polled want the name changed. Sure, it is popular to pile on the "Off with Dan Snyder's Billionaire Head" bandwagon, but this is a lazy article that has been written a hundred times. If you want to read something interesting, check out Hayley Munguia's excellent reporting on the 2,128 other teams that use Indian nicknames. Hayley takes the same position, but bothers to do a little balanced reporting to back up the article's position. I am boycotting the use of the Redskins name, as well as lazy, "me too" reporters like Mike MacAdams.
