The paper reported that Justice J. Scott Odorisi has instructed the parties to submit motions on the matter and that no new court date has been set.
Police blotter: A former high school hockey hero and his mother stand accused of bilking an office out of more than $400,000, The Daily Gazette reported.
Randi Smith, 53, of Amsterdam, and Dakota Smith, 23, of Saratoga Springs are accused of taking the money from the New York State Weatheri- zation Director's Associ- ation since September 2017. Randi Smith is accused of orchestrating the thefts from the non-profit's Guilderland office.
State police arrested Dakota Smith at the Albany Airport shortly before he was to board a flight to California.
Randi Smith faces one count each of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, first-degree falsifying business records and second-degree grand larceny, felonies. Dakota Smith faces one count each of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument related to the allegedly forged contract, and second-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
When Saratoga Springs won the 2013 NYSPHSAA Division I ice hockey championship with a 5-0 victory over McQuaid, Smith stopped 17 shots for his fourth shutout in six playoff games.
The question resurfaces: This discussion comes up at least once a year at girls lacrosse games I attend, and it's a valid question: Should the rules be changed to allow some semblance of physical play? After all, the rules in girls soccer and basketball are remarkably similar to the boys games at the same time that boys and girls versions of lacrosse are like night and day.
The Journal News dove into the question with a story this week.
"Put pads on them and let them play," North Rockland AD Joe Casarella said at a girls game recently.
Mahopac coach Jim Lieto doesn't concur with that, but he does see room for compromise.
"I'd love to see it more like soccer with body contact," Lieto said. "I'm all for you can't hit another girl with a metal stick. But allow them to bump shoulders. ... I've always thought, 'Allow more. Body-to-body, yes. Stick-to-stick, yes."
Said Nanuet coach Michelle Esteban: "I'm OK with a little pushing, a little give-back. I'm not OK with a big girl plowing a smaller player over."
