Subscription questions? Call 470-NEWS By Michael Licker Contributing writer It's impossible to miss that bushy red beard. Their little Amish boy, Zach Daniels' parents jokingly call him. But last fall and winter, the beard was gone. His fiery red hair, too. Cancer ravaged the body of the Hannibal senior. The chemotherapy that saved his life stripped Daniels of his defining feature. It's back. So is Daniels. The is a key player for the undefeated Warriors, who face Lowville on Saturday in a Class C Section III semifinal game. The cancer is behind him, Daniels said. He never feared death and promised himself he'd play football again. He's hitting harder, running faster and play- ing better than ever before. 'Right from the beginning I said, 'I'm going to play football next year. I'm just going to take a year Daniels said. A year ago, though, Daniels received the shock of his life. Lou Ann Daniels will never forget the afternoon of Monday, Aug. 2, 2004. Her son, who was about to start his first year at Hannibal after three years at Mexico, underwent a routine sports physical. Daniels' family physician didn't like what she saw and im- mediately sent Zach Daniels for an ultrasound test that same day.

Soldiers of the 2nd Platoon, Bravo Company were shot at three times Tuesday while on patrol in one of Baghdad's worst neighborhoods. Looking for trouble, meaning no harm MISSION TO By Hart Seely Staff writer Monday had been a crusher in their zone of Baghdad. That day, insurgents mounted four attacks, killing an Iraqi nation- al and wounding several. The place was coming to a boil. So on Tuesday, when Sgt. 1st Class Jerry Lee Stover prepped his 2nd Platoon, Bravo Company, part of the 10th Mountain Division's 1-87 Infantry, he minced no words. "Yesterday was a pretty hot Stover told his 15 men, as they huddled in a dusty lot on Camp Liberty, outside Baghdad, in the early morning light. "The commander and I both expect to make contact with the enemy today. "We are going out there, and we are going to go up and down every single he said. "The idea today is that we will make contact." The men closed ranks, form- ing a tight circle, their heads bowed.

FOOD, PAGE E-1 Is this vote for real reform? By Erik Kriss Albany bureau Do you associate "state bud- get" with How about Thought so. On Election Day, you can vote to change the bud- get process. But beware. Most state legislators, govern- ment reform groups and labor unions call ballot Proposal One "reform." But the governor, would-be governors, business groups and others warn it could give free-spending lawmakers a blank check. The proposed constitutional amendment that goes before vot- ers Nov. 8 would either effec- tively end late budgets and pro- vide certainty, or delay budgets and drive up -spending. It de- pends on whose argument you buy. The proposal grew out of two straight decades of late budgets a string that ended only this year after a 2004 campaign sea- son in which candidates prom- ised to end late budgets and end Albany's gridlock. If the amendment passes, here's what would happen: The beginning of the state's fiscal year would move from April 1 to May 1. If a new budget isn't in place by May 1, a contingency budget would automatically con- tinue the previous year's spend- ing levels until a new budget is in place. At that point, the Legis- lature would gain the authority to write its own budget rather than simply react to the gover- nor's proposal. School aid would be pro- vided in two-year cycles to give school districts greater fiscal cer- tainty and allow them to plan ahead more effectively. Health care spending, which is not now required to be part of the budget, would be, subjecting it to greater public review. PATAKI, PAGE A-3 'Stop the pork' rally in Syracuse today Members of New Yorkers to Change Albany will parade a giant pig through Syracuse today to protest Proposal One and pork-barrel spending in Albany. The pig will pause for a news conference at p.m. in the parking lot on the southeast cor- ner of North Salina and Willow streets. Group members want to urge citizens to vote no on Proposal One, which would transfer bud- get authority from the governor to the state Legislature. Syracuse is the third stop in the pig's statewide tour, which will run through Nov. 8. For more information, visit www.stopthepork.com. Inside A look at what you'll see in the voting
