Bet you all thought the' machine gun typrwriter had finally blown a fuse. No, that wasn't it. Time constraints forced a longer hiatus from this column than we had anticipated. We thank you for your patience, and hope we can get back on track. Is it possible that winter sports practices have started already? Well, judging by our weather this week, they should have. Indeed, Section X listed November 10 as the date that most of the winter high school sports team can begin prep- arations for their seasons. The girls basketball players have to wait until mid-December before they can start. There will be two new faces at the helm of Salmon River varsity teams this season. Kevin Wal- bridge takes over as varsity basketball coach from brother Wayne, whom we may see in a referee's uniform. And Doug Smoke will be behind the Shamrock hockey bench. Kathy Burkett will later return as girls JV baskettball mentor. We wish all students, coaches, and parents the best for 1986- 87. We have had a look at the winter schedules and, frankly, they're a mess. Boys basketball starts out on its customary Tuesday-Friday rotation- ...then goes to Wednesday- Friday in January, and Tuesday-Thursday in Feb- ruary. Girls basketball does just about the reverse starting in January. Boys swimming also contains several of those Tuesday-Thursday jobs. And, as it stands now, the SRCS hockey team is not involved in any tournaments whatsoever. Not even ONE. They usually host two or three. You know, these tour- naments are nice experience for the players and parents when Salmon River is invited to such places as Rome, Li- verpool, and the like. And the home tournaments help bring folks to this area...and that means money for the local economy, plus help for North Franklin Sports by way of profits at the concession stand. Those profits help NFS pay the bill for rental of arena ice time, plus for equipment and insurance costs. So, as you can see, those tournaments are valuable for many reasons. Whoever didn't bother to arrange any-or if they were arrrange, whoever cancelled them- seems to this reporter to be quite selfish and not very far-sighted. May we have an explanation please? Speaking of new coaches, Buffalo's sports teams finally made some needed changes. The Bills fired the highly disorganized Hank Bullough and replaced him with the milquetoast Marv Levy. Buf- falo responded to the change by beating Pittsburgh, 16- 12, last Sunday. They'll host Miami this weekend, and yours truly plus a couple of companions will be going down to see if Marv is any bit marvelous, if the snow permits. The Sabre's Scotty Bowan stepped down as coach, but remains as GM of the hockey team. The club has done nothing but regress during the Bowman years. Scotty is supposed to be a top-notch judge of hockey talent-but his current crop of iceman is in deep trouble already, wallowing in last place in the Adams Division. When Scotty resigned his coaching com- mission, he explained it by saying, \I've had enough- .\Believe me, so have the Buffalo hockey fans.

TheBeafs will host the annual Ken Gant tour- nament next Friday and Sat- urday, so plan to get Maxcy Hall and review the new edition of the national champs. A couple of local hockey players are making good this year. Kelly Cooke has made the Potsdam College squad, and is seeing extensive duty already. Craig Richards is in the Clarkson University club. The coaches of both are looking forward to the many contributions these ex- SRCS athletes will make to their schools now. We need some help in the Salmon River Arena scorer's booth for the varsity hockey season. Some timekeepers and another announcer or two are needed.
