Post-Standard, The (Newspaper) - January 28, 2005, Syracuse, New York Friday, January THE POST-STANDARD PAGE A-9 FROM PAGE ONE Pasqualoni had ties to Dallas' Parcells PASQUAIOW, ROM PAGE A-l Pasqualoni as his linebackers coach in 1987 and was suc- ceeded by him hi 1991, said Pas- qualoni had other irons hi the fire and was scheduled to talk with other teams. "That surprises Mac- Pherson said. "I know he talked to (the 1 know he's talking to others, too." Pasqualoni was in Mobile, Ala., this week for the Senior Bowl, an all-star football game featurins manv of the top pros- Syracuse offensive tackle Adam Terry is playing hi the game on Saturday. Syracuse running back Walter Reyes was scheduled to play but pulled out because of a shoulder injury. DallasCowboys.com, the team's Web site, reported that Pa-ceHv jirid Jeny Jones, the owner and general manager of the team, were the first three days of Senior Bowl practices this week. A newspaper account in Mo- bile reported that Pasqualoni was seen speaking with Parcells and Jones. That conversation appar- ently led to Pasqualoni accompa- nying the two on Jones' private jet to Dallas on Wednesday night. Pasqualoni's relationship with Parcells is unclear. Pasqualoni was a frequent visitor to a num- ber of NFL camps each summer before the start of Syracuse's own preseason practice. It's like- ly he crossed paths with Parcells when he coached the New York Giants, New York Jets and New England Patriots. Former SU assistant George DeLeone said he was "thrilled to death" to hear of Pasqualoni's decision to join Parcem. "Coach P is a great coach." DeLeone said. "He to coach. He needs to coach. He'll do a great job." DeLeone added that Pasqualo- ni was a rare guest at summer practices when Parcells was with the Patriots. "Coach Parcells let no one, I mean no one, come to his prac- tices or talk football to his DeLeone said. "Every year, he let Coach P stand on the sidelines and watch practices. Boy, there's some re- spect there. I mean no one ever Yv'Cui to tuOSC piaCuCCi. I said no one. I mean no one." MacPherson said he knows Pasqualoni used to visit the New York Giants camp as an SU as- sistant and "hit it off' with for- _i-----1. Belichick, now the head coach ot the New England Patriots. "If Parcells wasn't there, I'm not sure he'd be MacPherson said of the Cow- boys job. Pasqualoni is a great football coach. He's going to stay in coaching, and 1 think a lot of people are going to be in- terebied in him." Reid, 53, stepped down as head coach of Division I-AA Richmond to coach the defen- sive line for Pasqualoni last sea- son. He was not retained by Robinson but was "extremely delighted" upon hearing about the Cowboys announcement. "I know from people who know Coach Parcells that he al- ways has admired Paul for his work ethic and bis body of foot- ball Reid said. "There were a number of other (NFL) teams who wanted Paul on their staff, but I think Paul and Coach Parcells are cut from the same cloth. Each is very dis- ciplined, very work-oriented and very committed to his players." "I think it's said Syracuse assistant coach Chris White, who was the only posi- tion coach retained from Pas- qualoni's staff. "I think he's going to enjoy coaching in the NFL. All the distractions he had as a head coach took him away from the things he loved the most game planning, study- ing film, that's him. Co-coach- ing is perfect for him. I think he's ideally suited for it."

A Texas law- maker introduced a separate BMI measure this month. Michael F. Jacobson, execu- tive director of Center for Sci- ence in tne PuDiic interest, said statehouses and city halls can be more receptive to health-promot- ing legislation than Congress, which is heavily lobbied by food industries. Though state and city programs lack the far reach of federal campaigns, Jacobson said they can still help.

This year, Walsh used the spending bill to direct more than million to proj- ects in Central New York, in- cluding S53.9 million for an ad- dition to the VA Medical Center in Syracuse. That largesse continues: At a news conference scheduled Syracuse, Walsh will present more than million in HUD grants to local housing agencies. According to GOP term- limit rules, Walsh would have been required to give up the gavel of the subcom- mittee this year, although he had officially asked the House lead- ership for a waiver to keep it. Walsh said he is confident that his seniority he's beginning his ninth term in Congress and his reputation among his colleagues will earn him another subcommittee chairmanship. An important man in deter- mining who will chair the sub- committees is Rep. John McHugh, R-Pierrepont Manor, who has been a member of the GOP House steering committee since Republicans gained the majority in the 1994 election. The steering committee decides other committee assignments, but generally goes along with the wishes of House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-DL, and other leaders. The steering committee had hoped to finish its work this week, McHugh said, but deci- sions were postponed because Lewis, the Appropriations chair, had not finalized his subcommit- tee structure. The steering com- mittee tentatively plans to inter- view prospective subcommittee chairs next week, McHugh said. "Seniority is important" in selecting subcommittee chairs, McHugh said, "but it's not the only consideration. A great deal of deference is extended to the so a lot of weight will be given to Lewis' recom- mendations. Walsh said he has spoken to Lewis "a couple of times" in re- cent days, and he hopes a deci- sion will be made by the end of next week.

Bush opposes abortion but accepts availability MISH, (ROM PAGE A-1 the Oval Office with correspond- ents from The New York Times, Bush, seated in front of a crack- ling fire, ranged across a number of issues that he is expected touch on in his State of the Union address next week. On domestic policy, Bush sidestepped a question on wheth- er he agreed with a lower court ruling barring gay men and women hi Florida from adopting children, saving he was not aware 01 u. Bui he xuu thai while "children can receive love from gay he believed that "studies have shown that the ideal is where a child is raised in a married family with a man and a woman." He suggested, three days after telling a "March for Life" rally that he could see the "glimmer- child is "welcomed in life and protected in law that he was resigned for now to the contin- ued availability of abortion and that his role would be to show moral leadership rather than ad- vance specific new initiatives. "I think the goal ought to be to convince people to value Bush said. "But I fully understand our society is divided on the issue and that there will be abortions. You know, that's reality. Seems like to me my job is to convince people to make right choices in life, to under- stand thsrs 2T? to abortion, like adoption, and will continue to do so." The president, who is sched- uled to travel to Europe next month, rejected the suggestion that relations with Europe, par- ticularly with Germany and France, are badly frayed after the split over the Iraq war.
