Koziol's 16 saves key Wildcats' 8-5 win over Bees
A wide array of challenges greeted the West Genesee boys lacrosse team in the first full week of April, with plenty of motivation to meet those challenges head-on and eventually conquer them.
Central New York educators can take advantage of courses designed to help them implement the Common Core curriculum at OCM BOCES next week. From 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 27 and 28, educators in the Syracuse area can attend Discovery Education’s Common Core Academies at BOCES’ Central New York Regional Information Center, 6075 East Molloy Road, Syracuse. The courses will be lead by Common Core state standards expert Dr. Karen Beerer and hosted by Discovery Education, a publisher and content provider that offers textbooks and multimedia content that support Common Core implementation.
Community college students may soon have a harder time finding child care while they go to school. In his 2014-15 executive budget proposal, Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed cutting $653,000 from the state’s operating grant to the State University of New York’s child care centers. The cut would come in addition to a reduction in the federal Child Care Block Grant, which subsidizes care for children of needy student-parents. While the New York State Senate restored Cuomo’s cut in their budget proposal, advocates say the cuts faced by SUNY centers in the last several years are still devastating and need to be restored. And it’s community colleges that will likely see the most damaging consequences.
According to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New York is looking at a $2 million budget surplus. Cuomo has talked a lot about the surplus and his plans for it. Unfortunately for him, it’s not his money to spend.

Gaelic Knights earn rematch with Scotia-Glenville Saturday
Bishop Ludden's boys basketball team found its return to the state Class A playoffs to be a smooth one, at least at the outset. The Gaelic Knights put four players in double figures as it handled Massena, 71-50, Wednesday night at Cicero-North Syracuse High School to set up a highly-anticipated regional final against unbeaten, state no. 1-ranked Scotia-Glenville this Saturday at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy.
As controversies over Common Core and mandated standardized tests become more and more prevalent, many parents are choosing a new option in educating their children: homeschooling. Once the sole province of the very religious, homeschooling is becoming more popular every day, with a growth rate of 7 to 15 percent per year. Nationwide, about 2 million children learn at home instead of in a brick-and-mortar school, up from about 1 million in 2003. According to the U.S. Department of Education, about 88 percent of U.S. homeschool parents express concern about the school environment, citing drugs, negative peer pressure and general safety.
Hot shooting of Hawk, Hackett spark conquest of J-D
Seeing a 3-point shot fall early in the game is nice. Seeing a flurry of them go through the net can prove quite disheartening to an opponent - especially when the guys taking the shots are not known for outside proficiency. That's what the Bishop Ludden boys basketball team did to Jamesville-DeWitt in Saturday's Section III Class A final at the Carrier Dome, Kyle Hawk and Ben Hackett unleashing an outside barrage that no one anticipated and riding it all the way to an impressive 76-49 victory over Jamesville-DeWitt for its third consecutive sectional championship.

Kinship caregivers get support through statewide program, private pro bono clinic
When parents can no longer take care of their children, what happens next? Many times, relatives will step in, typically grandparents, to raise their son or daughter’s family. The reasons for kinship care are multiple and rarely, if ever, positive.

West Genny again denies RFA with championship at stake
Make that seven consecutive Section III Division I championships for the West Genesee ice hockey team, and four consecutive titles won at the expense of Rome Free Academy. The Wildcats' latest conquest of the Black Knights, a 3-1 victory in Saturday's sectional final at Utica Memorial Auditorium, included a crucial second-period scoring outburst and a defense that, once again, protected a lead once it was attained.
