MAHOPAC, N.Y.-Mahopac’s girls basketball squad came into this season with several question marks, including who would take over at point guard for the graduated Amanda Geyer.

“It feels like I have a bigger role on the team now,” McInerney said. “I’m also helping a lot of the younger girls, since it is a building up kind of year. I just want to show them how to play the game.”

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.
