M&M’s, Paul Harvey and the Rest of the Super Bowl Spots

February 4, 2013

As I was watching all of the commercials during this year's Super Bowl, I was thinking there were not that many that completely wowed me. But there were a few that stood out this year, not necessarily because they were really funny, but because they were well put together and delivered a great message.
I sat with a notebook in hand, viewing every single ad, and here is my take on the 2013 commercial spots.
First let's look at the ones that would fall into the serious, think-piece category.

Young Guns Lead Falcons to Second Win of the Season

February 3, 2013

NEWPORT–After going almost two long months since their last win, the North Country boys basketball team rallied from an eleven point first quarter deficit to defeat the Colchester Lakers 57-52 on Thursday evening.
"This feels great and it has been a long time coming," said NCU coach Brian Bonvechio. "We played these guys to a two point game at Colchester and we thought that we could play with them tonight and we did. We played tough defense and got some great performances out of these young men."

Rangers Dominant in 93-38 Win Over Raiders

February 3, 2013

ORLEANS-Strong defense leads to good offense, and with a smothering press combined with some lights out shooting, the Lake Region boys ran all over the Stowe Raiders en-route to a season-high 93-38 win on Friday night.
“It was an all-around great effort out there, one through eleven. We were missing Clint, but everyone played well," said LRU coach James Ingalls. "We just wanted to work out the kinks on defense, as last few games we have been letting up the last few minutes, but they brought the intensity for 32 minutes tonight."

Make it Three in a Row for the North Country Girls

January 31, 2013

JAY–North Country improved on their last performance against Stowe, adding an additional goal to their total, as they handed the Raider girls a 3-0 loss on Wednesday evening.
"I thought the first period was good as we set the pace. The second period, between all the penalties for both teams, I thought we never got into a rhythm, and in the third I thought we picked it back up," said NCU coach Claude Paul.
This is the second consecutive win over a team called the Raiders for North Country, as they disposed of the Rutland Red Raiders by an identical 3-0 score on Saturday.

Falcons Put Forth a Good Effort in 57-45 Loss to BFA

January 30, 2013

NEWPORT–A much better looking North Country girls basketball team took to the court on Tuesday night to square off against the BFA Comets. Although they did not get the win, dropping the contest 57-45, it was a greatly improved showing from last week's match with CVU.
"I am really proud of the fight that the girls showed," said NCU coach Christiane Brown. "It is not like we are two fighters in the ring, but when someone throws that first punch, are you going to lay down or are you going to get up and say is that your best shot, and the girls stood up and I am proud of them."
