Who can we trust on local TV news?

first_imgI was appalled to see Liz Bishop kowtowing to Sinclair Broadcast Group and spewing its propaganda. Disgusting. She is so much better than that. I worked for TV-10 and the state Health Department for many years and never did I lie.A couple of times I came close to being fired, but I stood my ground. What the heck happened to Liz? I am so disappointed. This is why I don’t watch local TV news anymore. When they can turn Liz, no one can be trusted.Kristine SmithDuanesburgMore from The Daily Gazette:Cuomo calls for clarity on administering vaccineEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Gov.

Flatlander IMCA Modified checkers fly for Gemmill, Heim

first_imgGOODLAND, Kan. (Sept. 26-27) – Long runs at the front ended with Brendon Gemmill and Chris Heim $1,500 richer for their IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified efforts at Sherman County Speed­way’s Flatlander special. Gemmill was scored first on all but the first circuit on Friday night at Goodland despite a souring power plant. Heim, a weekly regular at Goodland, was even more dominating with a flag-to-flag run on Saturday. Their victories put both drivers on the ballot for the 2015 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational. A single caution slowed the opening night Modified main seven laps in. Gemmill’s motor started missing and it took a couple circuits for him to get his momentum back. “I thought something was goofy. I thought it was a fuel issue but I was down a cylinder,” said Gem­mill, who nonetheless caught up with the back of the pack the last time around. “We’ve strug­gled a bit this year but made a lot of changes and now I think we’re competitive again.” Brady Coen, Clay Sellard, Jeremy Frenier and Bubba Alvarado were next across the stripe.Heim drew the pole for the caution-free Saturday show. He caught up with lapped traffic near mid­way and scored his fifth feature win of the season comfortably ahead of Frenier.“There was a lot of good competition here,” Heim said. “I ran one groove off the bottom. It just seemed like there wasn’t much on the top side. I’d rather run there but you’ve got to go where it’s going to work.” Rounding out the top five were Jeff Hunter, Coen and John Hansen. IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winners at the 25th annual Flatlander were Nick Tubbs and Justin Bus­sell. Darren Crouch and Chad Dolan won Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod main events and Colin Heim and Eric Ross were IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock winners. Tubbs extended his opening night and two-day overall point success to a fifth straight Flatlander. After starting seventh, he was one of the few drivers to try the high side, had the lead by halfway and beat Wheat Lippelmann across the line by three car lengths.A Flatlander winner previously in the super stocks, Bussell scored his career first sanctioned vic­tory on Saturday. Tubbs had started 13th and was in the lead when the white flag came out; Bus­sell picked the right line to pass Nick Tubbs and Jeff Tubbs after the front three encountered a lapped car. “It felt awesome,” Bussell said. “I think we’ve finished in the top four in every Flatlander for five years.” A single caution slowed Friday’s SportMod main. Crouch had started third, took the lead on the eighth of 20 laps and was catching up to the back on the field with a couple circuits left. Bryan Herrick closed in before Crouch motored away.Dolan led every lap of Saturday’s caution-slowed contest and won ahead of Eric Munoz. “This was one of the biggest wins of my career, because it came just after my brother had passed away and because it was the 25th annual Flatlander,” he said. “It was pretty emotional. It was just meant to be. Everything that needed to happen happened.” A junior at Hoxie High School, Colin Heim took his Friday night Hobby Stock foes to class in lead­ing every lap of a green to checkered feature. “It’s always to end the season with a win,” said Heim, who rebuffed Michael Brunswick for the victory. Ross needed five trips around the track to race from fourth to first on Saturday, making the most of the middle line.Kyle Pfeifer passed Heim following a restart with three laps to go but Ross stayed strong up front and won by four car lengths. Both Modified, Stock Car and Northern SportMod features doubled as Blood, Sweat and Tears Series events. Champions in those respective divisions were Frenier, Angel Munoz and Dolan.
