Mustangs rout Chittenango 18-4 to clinch first place
Long before any of its current players were born, the Marcellus softball team celebrated a league championship season in 1981. Three-plus decades later, the Mustangs reigned again, climbing to the top of the Onondaga High School League’s Liberty American division on the strength of a double-digit win streak.
Five years from now, the Syracuse skyline could look very different. Instead of an elevated highway heading into the city, the New York State Department of Transportation could construct an arterial boulevard. Or an underground tunnel. Or an iconic bridge. Truthfully, the DOT isn’t sure yet what the new Interstate 81 will look like. They just know that something needs to be done to replace the existing structure. “Bridges are designed to last for a certain period of time,” said Beau Duffy, public information officer for the NYS DOT. “The I-81 viaduct in Syracuse is reaching this point in time. Because repair and refurbishment of the bridge involves a significant investment, it makes sense, from a cost-benefit perspective, to look at potential alternatives for the future of the corridor.”

Walsh gets another shutout in Class B showdown
Nearly a year has passed since the Westhill baseball team turned back Cazenovia for the 2012 overall Section III Class B championship. Yet that amount of time has not changed the relative position of the two OHSL Liberty division rivals, as the Warriors, paced by Ben Walsh's superb pitching, turned back the Lakers 5-0 Friday afternoon at NBT Bank Stadium.
Reisie Murchison has every reason to believe in angels. “I met Norm, and his words were, ‘We’ll be there for you,’” Murchison said. “I remember like it was yesterday. I thanked him, he said, ‘You don’t understand. We’ll be there for you until the end.’ And he didn’t lie. Operation Southern Comfort came in and put me in a comfort zone. I felt comforted that all of these angels were around me doing everything they could. They fixed up everything.” Murchison will get to thank her angels in person this weekend. Thanks to an anonymous benefactor, Murchison, her daughter and her father will fly up to Syracuse from St. Bernard Parish, La., for the annual Crawfish Festival, the major fundraiser for Operation Southern/Northern Comfort.

Former Marcellus teacher shares stories of a life in the wilderness
Anyone who lived in Marcellus in the 1960s and 70s probably still remembers Bill Moran, the former teacher and bookstore owner. Moran left CNY for good in 1977 to pursue a life in the Montana wilderness, where he has led an unconventional life for more 35 years.

Tickets are $7 for students and $12 for adults. Eighteen bands will compete for a chance at the title as well as prizes.
When Caryn Daher’s son, Jon, was little, he was into everything — even more than the average toddler. “He was… constantly bumping and crashing into things and people and seeking-jumping type activities,” said Daher, a Cicero resident. “He had difficulty in regulating and responding to movement activities appropriately. It went far beyond a ‘busy’ toddler.” In addition, Jon struggled with a variety of sounds, often withdrawing or avoiding certain situations because of the noise level. He had higher-than-average sensitivities to food, temperature and touch. In addition, his speech was delayed. It was that delay that led to help for his other issues. Through his speech therapist, Jon was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder.
