S k i N Y s a f e t y p o s t e r s d i s t r i b u t e d t o s k i a r e a s School sports results The New York State Department of Labor has distributed \Ski NY Safely” posters to 85 ski areas across the state. The poster is designed to inform skiers and snowboarders of the New York State Skiing Responsibility Code. The code requires skiers to be aware o f inherent risks, congnfzant o f all posted signs and warnings, and safety con­ scious as well as encouraging skiers to be courteous to others on the mountains. \As we near the ski season, our goal is tc ensure ski areas are safe for all 'visitors and winter sports enthusiasts,\ said Commissioner James J. McGowan. \It is up to each individual to take per­ sonal responsibility while participating in f inter sports.\ The Department of Labor promotes the code of conduct for downhill skiers and ski area operators to minimize the risk o f injury to persons engaged in the sport of skiing and to promote safety in the downhill ski industry. The depart­ ment, in cooperation with the Passenger Tramway Advisory Council, enforces the safety o f ski lifts. Skiing Responsibility Code The Skiing Responsibility Code reads as follows: Siding can be enjoyed in many ways. At ski areas you may see people using alpine, snowboard, tele­ mark, cross country and other special­ ized ski equipment, such as ihai used by disabled or other skiers. Regardless o f how you decide to enjoy the slopes, aU ways show courtesy to others and be aware that there are elements o f risk in skiing that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. Observe the code listed below and share with other skiers the responsibility for a great skiing experience. 1. Always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects. 2. People ahead o f you have the right o f way. It is your responsibility to avoid them. 3. You must not stop where you obstruct a trail, or are not visible from above. 4. Whenever starting downhill or merg­ ing into a trail, look uphill and yield to others. 5. Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment. 6. Observe all posted sigrts and warn­ ings. Keep o ff closed traits and out o f closed areas. 7. Prior to using any liji, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely. This is a partial list Be safety conscious. Know the code It’s your responsibility It is your choice whether or not to wear a helmet while skiing or snow­ boarding. The New York State Depart­ ment of Labor urges you to consider the following ins making your decision: Helmets may reduce the severity of head injuries. ~ Helmets may increase the likelihood of neck injuries in samall children. ~ Make sure a helmet fits properly. - Read the helmet manufac­ turer’s information to leam what pVotec- tion a particular model will provide. ~ Helmets may reduce side vision and muffle sounds. ~ Always ski or ride under control, on terrain you are capa­ ble of skiing or riding, and maintain a lookout for other skiers, riders, and obstacles. The New York State Legislature has also adopted a Safety in Siding Code to define skiers' safety responsibilities. Safety is the responsibility of all who are involved in the sport o f skiing. The New York State Department o f La­ bor, through the Tramway Advisory Council and local department inspec­ tors, is working to make skiing safe. However, you the skier are the most important ingredient. New skiers should take lessons from professional instructors. Novice skiers should not attempt to ski on trails that are to® diffi­ cult. All skiers should respect the code D e e r s e a s o n - B e a l e r t ! Deer season is a time for drivers to be alert as this is the time of year when deer are mating and migrating. Add to that, daylight hours are shorter, increas­ ing the likelihood of deer being in the road or darting into the road in front of motor vehicles. From dusk to dawn, visibility is restricted and drivers should be alert to the potential of con­ tact with a deer. An adult deer can weigh-more than 200 pounds, and a car hitting a d e e rcan badly maim or kill the aniiflal. The col­ lision will do thousands of dollars worth of damage to the vehicle and may cause the car to veer off the road and crash.

GREENWICH JOURNAL Thursday, October 26» 2000 S M Æ M F F P » Page’7 A multiple car accident occulted on Monday afternoon, October 23, ¿bout 3:20 p.m. The Washington County Sheriffs Department responded to the scene. According to the deputy investigating the accident, five vehicles were in­ volved. Apparently, Florence LeBrun, 23, of Hudson Falls, driving a 1988 Plymouth east on Dix Avenue at the intersection of Vaughn Road in the town of Kingsbury, failed to stop for a line of stopped traffic. She struck a 3999 Subaru driven by Pamela Heym, 55, of Hudson Falls. The force of the impact sent her car into the car ahead of heTj a 1994 Plymouth operated by Amy Hitchcock, 19, of Argyle^ Hitchcock's car then struck a 1993 Mazda driven by Helen Kameda, 45, o f Right Up Your A lley by Paul Bddner Walter Ray Williams won his sec­ ond straight title in the Pro Bowlers tour last week. 1 did not ses all of the program, but there were a lot o f missed spares costing several bowlers a chance at the title match. Walter Ray seems to make most of his spares. He throws a good strike ball, but the confidence in his spares makes hint a very difficult opponent Ke is a howler wbo wins without throwing the ball 90 miles an hour or hooking it 20 boards. Accuracy and lift are the keys to h!s game. As many o f the analysts have stated, he is a bowler that many mere wan tabes should emulate. He has the knowledge, the strength and desire to win. The Troy Bowling Association an­ nual awards banquet is Saturday, No­ vember 4, at the Troy Elks.

It looks like the Professional B o v 5- era Tour is finally opening up its new office in Seattle and will close thè long time office in Akron, Ohio.
