Andes board ruling stirs hard feelings over signage

in

By Matthew J. Perry
Town planning and zoning boards of appeal are not known as hotbeds of drama. They tend go about their business quietly, mostly because that business, no matter how important it may be to a municipality, is rarely exciting.
But last month members of the Andes Zoning Board of Appeals made a decision that still has the community buzzing, often with anger and frustration. What could have touched off a fractious debate?
A sign. Or a mural. It depends on whom you ask.

Shootout ends Andes boys' season

By John Bernhardt
In a basketball game, the entire Laurens defensive line would have fouled out. In a hockey game, the Andes team would have played a man up for most of the game. But, in a Section IV soccer game, unless a foul is committed deep in the penalty area, a foul results in only a stopped ball. In a low-scoring sport, defensive walls, goalie play, and good defensive marking can provide daunting obstacles for offensive teams. Laurens rolled the dice by playing a fouling game with Andes’ high-scoring striker Peter Fabrykiewicz in a first-round playoff contest at Legion Field in Delhi on Thursday. The gambit paid dividends as the Leopards edged the Mountaineers in an overtime shootout.
