Marcellus Memories

The MCS wrestlers won their first league meet 30-15 over Jamesville-DeWitt. In the 103 lb. class, Bill Groeling was pinned. In the 112 lb. class, Tom Etter was pinned. Barry Smith at 120 lbs. pinned his man in the first period which started the Mustangs on the road to victory. In the 133 lb. class, Bernard MacDonald won. In the 138 lb. class, Leonard MacDonald outscored his man 3-2 for his victory. Ron Martinez at 145 lbs. won his match and Dick Campbell at 154 lbs. lost but not without a struggle. George Reagan at 165 lbs. tied and Peter Ilacqua wound up the meet winning his match.

The Marcellus Mustangs, co-champions last year with Skaneateles in the AB league, opened their season with a 56-44 victory over Jamesville DeWitt at J-D. The Mustangs, picked to repeat as champions were pressed throughout the game by J-D until they opened the game up in the last quarter. 6'5" Tom Mullen led both teams in the scoring with 26 points on some nifty shooting, netting 8 out of 10 from the field and 10 for 10 from the foul line. Chris Wiles played an outstanding game on defense for the Mustangs. The next game will be against Liverpool.

When a shadow is cast on your life, treat it as a temporary moment. Shadows mean the sun is still shining.

Christmas season is here, when the lights across Main Street are aglow and the Christmas tree on the Methodist Church lawn is decorated, it makes everyone feel friendlier and happy to see the bright lights on a snowy evening... proud of the people who took the time and effort to put the up the decorations. We have Mr. and Mrs. Bud Flitcroft to thank for the tree and the village crew for the decorating. It would be nice to say that everyone appreciated the efforts of those involved, but, last week nearly forty bulbs were taken from the tree. Why, you are asking yourself would anyone do this? Are there people in the village that would stoop that low to steal the bulbs from the village tree. Do they need them that bad? The local and State Police are running an ongoing investigation at this time. If you saw anyone around the tree you are to let them know.
