MAHOPAC, N.Y.-Coming off an impressive win over a tough Suffern team, Mahopac was looking to build off that momentum against John Jay-Cross River in the Putnam Challenge.

But the Indians faltered and John Jay handed them a 55-48 setback on Saturday, Jan. 6, at Carmel High School.

Mahopac trailed just 21-19 at halftime but John Jay erupted in the third quarter, starting it on a 14-2 run to take a commanding 35-21 lead.

“They do a lot of dribble-drive motion. They were making us help and were finding the open guys,” Mahopac coach Matt Simone said of John Jay. “They hit a lot of threes. We were looking to protect the paint, but their threes were falling and it’s tough when they’re shooting as well as they did from the outside.”

A (Burnt) Toast to Love and Marriage, on the Rocks

In its first few moments, sitcom-style comedy “Clever Little Lies” grabs audience attention right away, with one of the most revealing wardrobe changes you’ll ever see on stage. It is done modestly but just provocatively enough to elicit vocal appreciation from amused patrons.

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
