Weekend Poll: What Should Oscar Host Neil Patrick Harris Do Next?

But these are only a few of the things the stage and screen star has recently checked off his bucket list. He’s also hosted the Tony Awards four times, won a collection of Emmys (oh, and he hosted those twice too), met the president, appeared on How I Met Your Mother for nine seasons and donned drag in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. But wait, there’s more! He’s also a director, a producer and the proud father of twins. Phew! Is there anything NPH can’t do? No. He’s magical—wait, did we mention he also does magic?

WG, Marcellus, Ludden girls hoops get opening wins

first_img Tags: Bishop Luddengirls basketballMarcellusWest Genesee WG was not the only local side having to replace key players on its roster. Bishop Ludden had seen Aurora Deshaies graduate, which put more responsibility on a large returning cast.Against New Hartford, it was two freshmen – one a proven starter, the other a new face – that took charge of the Gaelic Knights’ attack.Amarah Streiff and Keaira Odume both hit on plenty of early baskets, and Ludden bolted out to a 27-18 advantage during a wild first quarter. Much of that advantage would disappear, though, as the Spartans pulled within two, 35-33, by halftime.All through the second half, the two sides traded runs, New Hartford getting 21 points from Sophia Murray and 17 points from Kaia Henderson as it pulled within one, 58-57, with three minutes to play.But key baskets from Streiff, who finished with 24 points, and Odume, who gained 21 points, stretched Ludden’s margin in those final minutes. They got help on offense from Lauren Petrie, who had 10 points, and Kayla Kibling, who got nine points.Quite unlike West Genesee and Bishop Ludden, Marcellus returns its entire starting lineup for 2019-20, and the Mustangs made quite an opening statement with its tournament title at Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, near AlbanyAgainst the host Spartans on Friday, the Mustangs won 53-44, erasing an early deficit when it outscored Burnt Hills 17-4 in the second quarter. And all through the second half, Marcellus played well on both sides of the ball to protect its lead.There was near-perfect scoring balance, too, as Katie MacLachlan led with 13 points, including a pair of three-pointers, while three other Mustangs – Sarah Fallon, Emma MacLachlan and Hannah Durand – got 11 points apiece.And Marcellus did not have a letdown in Saturday’s championship game, shutting down Lansingburgh 54-24.  The Mustangs had a 14-0 run that spanned the first and second periods, and then scored 13 straight points to open the third quarter.Again, four Marcellus players hit double figures, with Durand at the forefront as she scored 14 points. Emma MacLachlan had 12 points, while Katie MacLachlan got 11 points and Fallon added 10 points.Marcellus plays three more times next week before a key early-season test Dec. 11 when it hosts Westhill. Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story By far, the biggest challenge facing West Genesee in 2019-20 is replacing the sister tandem of Madison and Mackenzie Smith, who were largely responsible for the Wildcats’ three consecutive sectional titles and two state final four appearances. Two other starters, Kaitlyn Walker and Aleysha Castanon, also graduated.However, some key players are back, including Catie Cunnigham, and together they have worked plenty in the off-season, motivated by the desire to maintain WG’s place at the top of the AA ranks.The first outing agianst Proctor went quite well. With suffocating defense, the Wildcats, already in front 18-7 after one quarter, limited the Raiders to just eight total points in the next two periods as the game got away. It proved quite a good season-opening weekend for a trio of area girls basketball teams.West Genesee, who made it all the way to the state Class AA championship game last winter, bolted out of the gate Saturday with a 61-22 romp over the Utica Proctor Raiders.Meanwhile, Marcellus grabbed the title of a season-opening tournament at Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake, and Bishop Ludden, who appeared in the Section III Class A final a season ago, claimed a tough 68-61 decision over New Hartford.last_img read more

Bush to appear at Reagan Library

first_imgPresident George W. Bush is scheduled to arrive today in Southern California, the day before his appearance at an invitation- only dedication of the $31 million Air Force One Pavilion at the Reagan Presidential Library. Bush will be joined by first lady Laura Bush and former first lady Nancy Reagan at the ribbon-cutting of the 87,000-square- foot pavilion, which houses “The Spirit of ’76,’ the Boeing 707 that served as the official plane for him, Reagan and six other former presidents. “We are very proud that President and Mrs. Bush accepted our invitation to attend our grand opening,’ said Melissa Giller, a spokeswoman for the Reagan Library. “We know it means a lot to Mrs. Reagan. “Not only did Bush fly on the plane, he represents what this is all about: the `Flying White House.’ ‘ But the highlight, for many, will be the brief appearance by the commander in chief. “Any time the president of the United States attends an event in your hometown it’s a huge honor,’ said Simi Valley City Councilman Glen Becerra, who will attend Friday’s ceremony. “It’s something I’m very proud of because it says how important the event is not only to the community but the country.’ The Reagan Library will be closed today through Sunday to prepare for Monday’s grand opening, although private, invitation-only events are scheduled for the weekend. “It’s really come full circle for us,’ Giller said. “We can’t wait to open our doors and let the public come see what we have been able to see every day.’ Because of Bush’s visit, Madera Road between Country Club Drive West and Country Club Drive East and Wood Ranch Parkway between Madera Road and Country Club Drive will be closed on Friday. Hundreds of law enforcement officers, including those with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, Simi Valley Police, and California Highway Patrol, will be on hand to assist Secret Service agents with the visitation of the president. “Because there are a number of dignitaries who have been invited to the event, there will be extensive security,’ said Ventura County Undersheriff Craig Husband. — Angie Valencia-Martinez can be reached at (805) 583-7604, or by e-mail at [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
