‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Avengers’ Win Big at 45th Annual Saturn Awards

At the 45th Annual Saturn Awards Friday evening, as Jamie Lee Curtis picked up her first award, she had a good luck charm on her arm: former manager Chuck Binder, whom she said was why she became an actor.

“I was in school and didn’t think I was an actor,” Curtis informed Variety ahead of her best Halloween actress victory. “At Christmas I went back from college and an ancient friend of mine who used to be a tennis professor was managing performers. He said,’ Nancy Drew is searching for them. Would you like to go up for it? And I was like,’ Sure.’

“While Curtis didn’t get the part, she was hooked, and after a series of victories and losses, she got the position that kicked her career off. “I ended up at Universal Studios with a[ acting] contract,” she continued. “I left college and was an actor on a television show for about a year. Then I’ve been shot. Then, my director, Chuck, placed me up for Halloween. I would never have been an actor if I hadn’t run into Chuck Binder over Christmas that day.” “I would have been a police officer, “she continued. “This is my date tonight, because I imagined he’d bring me luck, and although he’s not my manager and we haven’t worked together in 30 or 40 years, that’s why I’m an actor and there’s nobody else I’m more than thankful for that because it gives me a creative life I never thought I’d have.” The Saturn Awards, which honors movie pictures, television, home entertainment, and live stage productions. “Welcome to the Awards for Saturn. We celebrate all that used to kick and beat us in college tonight, “Tyler quipped as she began the show.

Curtis was just one of the many great winners of the night. Longtime presenter and attendee of the Saturn Awards, “Star Trek: Discovery” star Doug Jones, took back his first prize in a streaming presentation at the show for the best supporting actor. Meanwhile, Zendaya nabbed the best supporting actress for “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” and Josh Brolin won the best supporting actor for “Avengers: Infinity War.”

“Avengers: Endgame” resulted the prizes with six Saturns, taking home the best comic-to-motion image release, best actor in a movie (Robert Downey Jr.), best film production design, best film editing, best film make-up and best movie special / visual effect. Game of Thrones took home four: best fantasy TV series, best actress on a TV series (Emilia Clarke), best-supported actor on a TV series (Peter Dinklage) and best performance on a TV series by a younger actor (Maisie Williams).

Bermudez leads East Boston past Brighton

Bermudez leads East Boston past Brighton

In recent years, it seems like East Boston and Brighton have consistently found themselves in a classic battle, at least when it comes to the gridiron.

But on Friday night, the Jets made a statement to the rest of the Boston City League, and ironically, they did so using the ground game. Senior running back Randy Bermudez finished with 15 carries, racking up 137 yards to go with a touchdown, as East Boston took home a convincing 40-16 victory over its rival from the west side of town.

Early on, however, it appeared as though the game was truly going to be a nail-biter. East Boston (1-0) opened things by staging a long drive, one which lasted 5:48. Joshua DeLacruz got the scoring started for the Jets, as he took a handoff on a counter play, then shed multiple tackles on his way to a 28-yard touchdown scamper. Taelor Thompson proceeded to convert a two-point rush, and East Boston took an 8-0 lead.

Brighton would respond on its ensuing possession, as Sahmir Morales connected with Jathan Greene for a 4-yard touchdown pass. Greene would also go on to convert the two-point try, as the Bengals evened the score at 8-all with 2:25 left in the stanza.

With 30 seconds remaining in the first half, Jaye Kincade fought his way into the end zone for a 13-yard touchdown rush, before Thompson hit Alex Valencia for a two-point conversion to provide East Boston a 16-8 lead at the break.

Once the third quarter got started, the Jets lined up for a kickoff. Senior Alvaro Pineda then bounced a squib kick upfield. However, the ball took a wild hop past a couple of Brighton returners, then rolled harmlessly toward the sideline, where it was scooped up by a pile of East Boston special teamers at the Bengals’ 26. Just like that, the momentum completely swung in the Jets’ favor.

“We do that all the time,” East Boston coach John Parziale said. “We’ve been squib kicking for a hundred years. We don’t kick it deep, ever. So, we got lucky tonight and got one of them.”

East Boston took advantage of the freak play, as Thompson led his team deep into the red zone, then closed the drive with a 3-yard quarterback keeper for a touchdown. He would add a two-point rush, giving the Jets a 24-8 lead.

As Brighton searched for a response, the Bengals mishandled a snap, only to watch the ball be swallowed by a swarm of Jets defenders. The turnover proved costly, as Bermudez broke off his longest rush of the night — a 50-yard sprint, which set the Jets up at the Brighton 1.

“I was really excited,” Bermudez said. “I saw a big gap. Knew I had to break it down, and keep on going. Just do my best to try to score a touchdown.”

Bermudez would go on to punch in a 1-yard touchdown run on his next carry with 7:45 left in the third. Kincade would notch a two-point rush to make it a 32-8 contest, and the Jets would coast to the finish from there.

In total, the Jets combined for 306 yards rushing, with Kincade (79 yards) and DeLacruz (55 yards, touchdown) adding to Bermudez’s heroics. Daniel Pedronio registered a 3-yard touchdown as well for East Boston.

Senior Damian Blacknall added a 9-yard touchdown in the effort for Brighton.

“I think the offensive line did well with opening holes for the backs,” Parziale said. “We had a couple of turnovers that went our way, so we had the ball a couple of times, which was really good for us. Brighton’s a good team, they’re well-coached, and they can score at any moment. They’re fast, but we got the breaks tonight early on, and sort of kept piling on.”

Ailing St. Paul photojournalist tells his story from behind the camera

Ailing St. Paul photojournalist tells his story from behind the camera

As usual, Bill Alkofer was behind his camera to capture the moment.

It was in this moment, though, that the photojournalist became the subject.

“I know the exact second when my disease manifested itself,” Alkofer says. “It was at 6:53 p.m. and 41 seconds on October 19th, 2018. I know the time because I was taking a picture at a high school football game.

“I tried to lift the camera over my head — and I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t lift up the camera.”

This moment eventually led to a diagnosis: A variation of ALS — amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease).

There is currently no cure for the progressive condition that steals a person’s ability to move, talk, swallow and — eventually — to breathe. It typically comes with a life expectancy of two to five years.

“As soon as the neurologist said, ‘ALS is on the table,’ it hit me like a ton of bricks,” Alkofer said. “I sat in the parking lot for an hour. … That night, I dreamed of my dad.”

His dad passed away of a similar condition. Could there be a connection?

After the diagnosis, Alkofer reacted like many us do when the news is bad and we need support: He came home.

‘IT’S A MINNESOTA THING’

Alkofer, who most recently worked for the Orange County Register in California, says that he “hails from the hinterlands of North Dakota,” but he also called St. Paul home for many years, some of them as a photographer for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. And it is here — St. Paul — where he has come home.

“This is where my support system is,” he says.

Friends and fellow photojournalists Richard Marshall, left, and Scott Cohen, both of St. Paul, help set up Bill Alkofer’s new bed as he moves into his apartment at an assisted-living facility in St. Paul in June 2021. (Craig Lassig / Special to the Pioneer Press)

The 59-year-old has moved into an assisted-living facility in Highland Park. But, in addition to the caregivers and his family and friends, his support system of almost 20 people also includes people carrying cameras: his fellow photojournalists. They go back — way back. Back when pictures were processed not on computers, but in darkrooms.

“My friends here are still very loyal, with huge hearts,” he says. “It’s a Minnesota thing.”

Maybe it’s a “Bill thing,” too: Alkofer’s community of friends, family and colleagues both past and present — from California to Minnesota — came together for him after his diagnosis, raising more than $25,000 to help get him back to Minnesota, and to pay for a hotel while he waited for a spot to open up in assisted living.

And now his friends are preparing another GoFundMe — to raise money for the living wake Alkofer wants to host, as well as for his funeral.

‘THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PHOTO OF YOUR LIFE’

At the Pioneer Press, Alkofer captured life in Minnesota — and sometimes in North Dakota, too — for almost a decade.

Perhaps his most iconic image is from the Grand Forks flood of 1997.

After the Red River burst through the dikes and flooded the border towns of Grand Forks, N.D., and East Grand Forks, Minn., on April 19, 1997, a fire began burning in downtown Grand Forks.

Later that morning, Alkofer waded into the floodwaters to photograph two firefighters as they stood hip deep in the water, trying to hook up a hose to a fire hydrant — an unsuccessful effort to extinguish the blaze that eventually consumed 11 buildings.

“I wish I could go back,” he says, “and whisper to 1997 Bill, ‘This is the most important photo of your life.’ ”

‘TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE’

In between seeing patients on a recent morning, Dr. Namita Goyal remembers one of her former patients: Bill Alkofer.

“He is very tenacious,” she recalls. “He is very charming.”

He was a good advocate for himself, she recalls, wanting all other possibilities to be ruled out before they reached what was the ultimate diagnosis of ALS.

Goyal is used to seeing the cruelties of this progressive neurodegenerative disease that was first identified in 1869; she is a neurologist at the ALS & Neuromuscular Center at the University of California, Irvine Medical Center in Orange County.

“Every one of my patients have stories that are just as heartbreaking as Bill’s,” she says.

Pro-life group questions Hochul’s push for reproductive rights

NEW YORK (WETM) — An anti-abortion educator with the statewide organization New York State Right to Life (NYSRTL) takes issue with New York’s official stance on abortions.

Gov. Kathy Hochul and several women elected leaders and advocates held a press conference on Monday. There, they announced an official response to the abortion ban passed through the Texas Legislature last month. “I’m going forward,” Hochul said. “I’m not going back.”

“Contemplate which side of history you’re going to be on. Where do you want to put your marker down? Where do you want to draw your line in the sand?” said Lori Kehoe with the NYSRTL. “Are you going to be one of the people who say, ‘No, we can do better for women?’ Or are you going to be one of those people who someday look back and was like, ‘Yeah, I was one of those champions to kill kids because I thought women couldn’t handle it!'” she continued.

Ask Amy: Caregiving spouse is overwhelmed

Ask Amy: Woman should leave abusive relationship

Dear Amy: My wife was recently hospitalized, and, as I have done previously, I sent messages to family and her friends to let them know her status.

After each message, I received many in return, some asking questions that required a personal response.

When my wife was about to be discharged, I received multiple offers to help with shopping and other chores.

I had to write a tactful response to each, explaining that her diet has to be carefully controlled, so I have to do the shopping.

I have such mixed feelings about the incoming messages.

It is wonderful that family and friends care, but the volume of traffic requiring a response has been a burden on me at a difficult time.

What do you think is the proper protocol when receiving an update on CaringBridge, or through a mass email like mine?

Should people think good thoughts but maybe not respond directly?

Respond with a banal thanks/best wishes message?

Or demonstrate interest and caring by asking for more information, thus creating a stressor for the caregiver?

Thanks so much for the insights in your column, which I read in the LA Times.

No. 1 Catholic Memorial holds off challenge from La Salle

Published

Big second half leads Springfield Central to road win at BC High

If you thought John DiBiaso would be full of the warm and fuzzies after his team earned a 42-26 win over La Salle Academy of Rhode Island, then you might not know the Catholic Memorial coach as well as you think.

After Friday night’s win, DiBiaso told his team in no uncertain terms that he was not pleased at all with the performance.

“The Super Bowl losses (by the Knights in 2018 and 2019) were better than that,” DiBiaso said.

Well, if the win over La Salle was so bad, you have to wonder what the Knights will do when they play up to their coach’s liking.

Junior quarterback JC Petrongolo completed 15 of 25 passes for 235 yards and three touchdowns, two of which went to classmate Jaedn Skeete for scoring tosses of 49 and 6 yards. Through two games against out-of-state competition, the Knights are averaging 43 points per game, and it remains a mystery whether someone they play can run with their fleet of speedsters.

But none of that satisfied DiBiaso, who was fixated on his team’s shortcomings.

“What didn’t I like?” DiBiaso said. “The penalties. The turnovers. Guys cramping up. Not playing until the whistle. Playing through the whistle and getting personal fouls. I didn’t like any of it.”

The message got through to Skeete, who caught four passes for 68 yards.

“We’ve just got to do better,” Skeete said. “Our performance wasn’t that good. Luckily, we came out with a win today, but we need to be more disciplined. There were too many flags on the field. We’ve just got to work harder. We’ve got to do better. It starts in practice.”

The Knights took the opening kick and scored in less than a minute on a 3-yard touchdown run by Datrell Jones. La Salle answered with a 17-yard touchdown pass from Dean Varrichione to Justin Benson to cut the CM lead to 7-6. In the second quarter, CM answered on a 49-yard Petrongolo pass over the middle to Skeete, who outraced the La Salle secondary to the end zone.

La Salle then cut the deficit to 14-12 on a 3-yard scoring run by Jameszell Lassister, and it looked like it would stay that way until halftime. But another one of the terrific CM junior receivers, Kole Osinubi, took a 25-yard pass from Petrongolo to give the Knights a 21-12 lead at halftime.

“We try to distribute it like a basketball team,” DiBiaso said of his skill players. “This guy gets it. That guy gets it. But, again, we didn’t do as good a job as we should.”

CM finally began to pull away in the third quarter. Jones added a 13-yard touchdown run, then Skeete lost his man for a 6-yard score as CM pushed its advantage to 35-12. La Salle scored two touchdowns in the fourth sandwiched around a Carson Harwood 3-yard scoring jaunt.

Police arrest Florida suspect after collision at Gloversville school

Police arrest Florida suspect after collision at Gloversville school

GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Gloversville Police Department reports the arrest of Justin J. Hughes, 31, of Gloversville on Wednesday.

Police say that, since the start of the school year, they’d received many complaints about parking near Boulevard Elementary School during drop-off and dismissal. Police patrols were increased to enforce parking restrictions and maintain a safe situation for students.

During dismissal on Wednesday, an officer handling parking at the school encountered a car parked in the median of East Boulevard. He contacted the driver—later identified as Hughes—to tell him to move, because he was not parked in a legal spot. The officer reportedly told him to pull over for a traffic stop, but Hughes allegedly fled down First Avenue.

The officer pursued. Police say that Hughes pulled into a driveway, turned around, and headed back toward the school, so the officer moved his marked police car into the oncoming car’s lane to block him. The officer said he was afraid of Hughes returning to the area populated with parents and students.

The patrol car in his path was reportedly damaged in the collision with Hughes, who was arrested. He was charged with:

  • Third-degree criminal mischief
  • Obstruction of governmental administration
  • Resisting arrest
  • Unlawfully fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle
  • Reckless driving

Back on March 16, Gloversville detectives helped U.S. Marshals arrest Hughes, who was considered a fugitive. He was wanted at that time on several outstanding Florida warrants for:

  • Possession or promotion of a photo or movie of a sexual performance by a child
  • Possession of a photograph of a sexual performance by a child
  • Distribution of obscene material to a child

When he was arrested this week, Hughes was reportedly wearing a GPS monitoring bracelet as a result of the case in Okaloosa County, Florida. He was arraigned in Gloversville court and remanded to the Fulton County Correctional Facility without bail. He was also served with a Letter of Trespass restricting him from school properties.

Gloversville police say they don’t usually release mug shots of suspects, but decided to release Hughes’ based on the nature of the Florida charges and his presence on school grounds. They say to call (518) 773-4577 if you have any information on this matter.

NEWS10 requested a copy of bodycam footage and to speak with the officer involved in the incident. Our request was denied.

Murphy steps up to lead Reading past Barnstable

Published

Big second half leads Springfield Central to road win at BC High

READING — When Reading needed him most, James Murphy delivered.

Murphy threw for 257 yards and two touchdowns to go along with a crucial late third-down completion as No. 12 Reading outlasted 10th-ranked Barnstable, 18-14, on a mist-filled Friday night in Reading.

Murphy compiled 134 yards in the second half, 57 of which came on the Rockets (2-0) go-ahead drive at the start of the fourth quarter.

“This was one of the better games I have been part of as our guys played the full 48 minutes,” Murphy said. “The offensive line gave me more time in the second half so all I needed to do was put the ball where it needed to be.”

After tailing the Rockets 12-7 midway through the third quarter, Barnstable grabbed the advantage using its physical style of play to seemingly wear down Reading. Eugene Jordan capped off the 10-play, 55-yard drive with a seven yard plunge into the end zone to put Barnstable on top 14-12.

Murphy and the Rockets responded. The junior quarterback led the offense on a 15-play, 75-yard drive highlighted by a five yard touchdown reception by Jesse Doherty to put Reading back in front 18-14 with 8:48 remaining.

After the two sides traded turnovers, Barnstable found itself with an opportunity to take the lead with less than five minutes to play. The Reading defense, however, forced a turnover on downs with Alex DiNapoli making a key pass breakup on fourth down to turn the ball back over to the Rockets.

Barnstable had one last chance after forcing Reading into a third and 12, but Murphy stepped up in the pocket and fired a perfect ball to Doherty for the first down that sealed the win for the Rockets.

“Hats off to Barnstable, they came out with a great game plan,” Reading coach John Fiore said. “James was fantastic. Our receivers came up big. We had some physical matchups but our guys kept going after it.”

Reading opened the scoring on its second drive of the game. On first and 10 from his own 27, Murphy dropped back and fired a quick wide receiver screen to Ryan Strout who navigated traffic and took off down the far sideline for a 73 yard touchdown and a 6-0 Rockets lead.

Barnstable jumped in front to begin the second quarter as on its first frame of the stanza Henry Machnik rolled left and heaved a ball to the back of the end zone where Colin Fay made a miraculous catch for a 29 yard score that, coupled with the point after, gave the Redhawks a 7-6 advantage.
