Amy Schumer Flies With Local Wings

Amy Schumer Flies

With Local Wings

By Chrystal Savage • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

Amy Schumer wore locally made wings in the Hellman’s mayonaisse ads during the Super Bowl.

Cecily Rush watched the Super Bowl along with 96.4 million Americans, and there they were: Her handmade angel-wing creations in Hellman’s “Fairy Godmayo” commercial, starring Amy Schumer.

“I was given no details beyond the fact that it was a Super Bowl commercial and that the wings were going to be worn by a blonde celebrity who recently had a baby,” said a thrilled Cecily Monday, Feb. 8, the day after the Tampa Buccaneers beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-9.

It was Amy Schumer. “Just move over and watch the wings,” she tells a confused homeowner, at a loss for what to do with his leftovers.

Be-winged Schumer solves his dilemma with a wave of her butter knife before the commercial ends.

On Twitter, and Bryce Harper, a Dreams Park graduate who is now playing for the Washington Nationals, has posed a tribute on Instagram.

Hall Of Fame Embraces Digital Era, Idelson Says

Hall Of Fame Embraces

Digital Era, Idelson Says

The Baseball Hall of Fame, though digital outreach, is embracing the new reality of an online world, President Jeff Idelson tells a rapt audience at this afternoon's Friends of the Library's Sunday Series at Cooperstown Village Hall. It's been 25 years since James Earl Jones famously said in "Field of Dreams," "If you build it, they will come," said Idelson. The new reality is, "You have to build it now and take it to people," he said. That the Hall is succeeding is evident in 44 percent increase in Facebook traffic last year, 25 percent increase in Twitter and 81 percent hike in Instagram. (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

ONEONTA’S NINJA: Anthony Eardley AimsTo Grip, Climb, SwingInto National Stardom

Anthony Eardley Aims

To Grip, Climb, Swing

Into National Stardom

Keep your eyes open as you drive past Oneonta’s 1 Tilton Ave. in the next few days. Anthony Eardley is doing his final training to compete in the TV show, “American Ninja Warriors.” Filming starts Monday. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)

ONEONTA – Since infancy, Anthony Eardley hasn’t let the laws of nature get in his way.

Most people avoid being on something high off the ground or being suspended in midair. Eardley runs toward it – and then climbs, grips, swings and flips over it, front-, side- and backwards.

Eardley built a series of exercise bars and obstacles in his parents backyard to prepare for the competition ahead.

That lack of fear, plus all-around athletic abilities, plus a drive to overcome obstacles – physical and mental – propelled the 28-year-old Oneonta native to win a spot on NBC’s hit TV show, “American Ninja Warrior,” less than two years since entering his first ninja warrior competition on a whim.

The show will begin airing its 11th season on May 28 at 8 p.m.

“I watched ‘American Ninja Warriors’ for several years.  And over time, in the back of mind, I kept hearing, ‘I could do this, that wall doesn’t look that high’,” Eardley said.  “Everyone else says, ‘That looks dangerous, I’m not going to try that.’”

Eardley searched the Internet to find a Ninja obstacle course nearby.  The closest one was “a hardcore Ninja complex” called “Brooklyn Zoo,” an affiliate of the actual Brooklyn Zoo.  It had adult open gym on Saturdays, so he drove there one weekend in September 2017.

“It was overwhelming at first and I almost hurt myself that first day,” said Eardley, who among other accomplishments played for the Oneonta Stallions football team.

Undaunted, he found out there was a competition that day and signed up for it – his first one.  He came in third out of about 30 contestants, many of whom had “ninjaed” (that’s a real word) for years.

“I got a $40 gift card and other things, and I thought, ‘I can win prizes?’” Eardley said.

Determined to win a first place in a Ninja warrior competition, he returned to the Internet and found Ninja gyms and competitions all over the country.  And each Ninja gym had a different course.

Editor’s Note: “Oneonta’s Ninja” Anthony Eardley today – Monday, April 29 – began competition that could win him the title “American Ninja Warrior” on the hit TV shows.  How the competition goes is a closely held secret until the show airs at the end of the month.

MACHOLZ: Protect Over-60 Members Who Are At Highest Risk

TENDING THEIR FLOCKS

Protect Over-60 Members

Who Are At Highest Risk

By JOHN A. MACHOLZ • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

In Luke, Jesus calls his followers to be as innocent as doves and as wise as serpents. It is now time for us to be wise as we follow the One who brings hope and healing to our lives and world.

The Most Rev. John A. Macholz is the Lutheran bishop of Upstate New York.

I am announcing the cessation of “in person” worship in this synod beginning March 15 and continuing for at least three weeks through Tuesday, March 31. At that point in time, we will reassess and make additional recommendations if needed.

I recognize that I do not have the authority of Scripture or constitution to do this but I do believe that we have the imperative of both to act responsibly for the well-being of the Church. The rapid spread of COVID-19 requires that we act. Some may see these measures as drastic. I consider them prudent.

Many of our members at the Sunday liturgy are age 60 and older. People in this age group have been designated as persons at higher risk, as well as those who are vulnerable for health reasons. It is our responsibility to care for them and for all our members in every possible way. This is one of those ways.

Continuing to gather only gives the virus increased opportunity to grow and spread. We have the ability to slow this spread. This is, in my pastoral opinion, the time act.

I am in continuing contact with the Churchwide office in Chicago and the Governor’s office in the state of New York. We will continue to seek their advice and counsel in this regard.

In the meantime, remember this: we are not closing down congregations. We are seeking new ways to be in ministry with one another. We are working on resources for use at home, some have already been posted to the synod website and on Facebook. The synod website will be continually updated and include information on COVID-19 as it becomes available. In addition, making use of Facebook and Instagram Live can provide an opportunity for continuing contact for some. A simple phone call on a regular basis to those most isolated will be an important ministerial tool and a welcome gift. To paraphrase Presiding Bishop Eaton’s words, “we are practicing physical distancing, not social distancing.”

I am deeply grateful for technology that allows us to work remotely, which many of us will do moving forward. It adds another level of distancing ourselves from the source.

Please also note that during these times Church Staff (Administrative Support Staff, Sexton, Musicians and the Pastor’s) will continue to work in connecting with their faith communities and the local authorities to remain current with realities and progress, as well as planning for the future. It is important; therefore, that we continue to pay salaries and provide insurance for staff members. It is also good stewardship that we find alternative ways to give our regular offering to the church. There will be an article on the web site that may prove useful for you.

As we move forward as the Church Together please know that I will continue to hold you and our shared ministry in prayer and in hope. We shall weather this storm and come out on the other side stronger, more compassionate, more knowledgeable and more resilient about ministry in these trying times. This will be an opportunity for us to grow and discover. May it be so among us.

ONEONTA – For Serenity Hobbies’ proprietor Nate Roberts, the game must go on.

“We have weekly games that people still want to play,” he said. “But we have an account with Roll20, which is software that creates a virtual tabletop and has a voice chat.”

It’s free for players, who will be invited by their Dungeon Masters to join as each game is set up. “We’re taking our weekly “Magic: The Gathering” tournament online too,” said Roberts. “People can play from home. We didn’t want to cancel it.”

As Coronavirus cases begin to mount in Upstate New York – although one has yet to surface in Otsego County – Oneonta’s downtown is preparing as best they can to weather the storm.

“Everyone was in on Friday, stocking up on books,” said Martha Bremer, Green Toad Books. “Kids are out of school, but they still want to read.”
