The girl was a patient in the hospital's pediat- i ric unit. She told officers she was raped in the room she shared with another patient. She said the rapist was visiting a patient, said Sgt. Tom Connellan, speaking for police. Police are trying to determine whether the sus- pect was visiting the victim's roommate, he said. The victim did not know the suspect, Connellan said. Connellan said the girl tried to fight off her at- tacker, but he would not explain whether staff or her roommate heard or saw what happened. He would not give the girl's age or explain why she was hospitalized. He also did not have a detailed description of the suspect. Connellan said the victim reported the attack to hospital staff after the suspect fled. Police and hospital officials believe the rape happened between 5 p.m. and p.m.. during normal visiting hours, said Connellan and Bob Allen, Grouse Hospital's communications direc- tor. Allen said the suspect is not a hospital employ- INSIDE CNY hospital officials, experts say most visitors are not Dick Blume Staff photographer JUDGE ANTHONY ALOI shows a photo of the wreckage of the red Ferrari in the drunken-driving crash that killed Matthew Angelillo. Aloi noted that the driver, Steven Corsello, had been driving as fast as 120 mph that night. Judge: DWI not a rite of passage Dick photographer STEVEN CORSELLO listens Wednesday as Onondaga County Court Judge Anthony Aloi sentences him to one to three years in state prison. Steven Corsello, 18, sent to prison for killing friend in a drunken driving crash. By Jim O'Hara Staff writer For months, Onondaga County Court Judge Anthony Aloi has heard the second- guessing about his decision to send Steven Corsello to state prison for killing Matthew Angelillo in a drunken driving crash a year ago. Wednesday, he had his say. For an hour, Aloi defended his rationale, criticized his critics and lambasted a com- munity attitude that seems to treat drunken driving by teen- agers as a legitimate "rite of passage." Some recent letters to the editor have challenged his insistence on prison time when a Cicero teenager in an- other fatal drunken-driving crash got a local jail sentence. The judge came down off the bench to display 13 photo- graphs of the fatal crash on a screen in the courtroom. He asked all teenagers in the courtroom to stand and indi- TEENS, PAGE A-4 Victim's mom's hope: Let this be a lesson to others: Value your lives and respect the gift of Prison time: How does the sentence compare with other cases over the past 10 Another Three teens charged near where drinking started that led to deadly Village looks at closing bingo hall Union Springs investigates taking action after Cayugas' loss in federal court. By Scott Rapp Staff writer Emboldened by Tuesday's land claim ruling, the village of Union Springs is now taking aim at closing the Cayuga Indian Na- tion of New York's video gam- ing hall on Route 90. "It's clearly in violation of and state laws, and we're going to deal with it when we gel all the pieces together.. I'd like to see it shut down as soon as Mayor Ed Trufant said after learning of the court ruling. First, though, the village needs a federal judge to lift his 2004 injunction, which has barred local and state officials from interfering with operation of the high-stakes electronic- bingo hall. A hearing is sched- uled on Aug. 10. Trufant said the 2nd U.S. Cir- cuit Court of Appeals dismissal of the Cayuga Indian land claim and the million judgment on Tuesday has now bolstered the village's argument in the bingo hall dispute. The court, in a 2-1 ruling, said too much time had passed before j the Cayugas and Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma tried to re- gain ownership of their historic homeland around the north end of Cayuga Lake. The New York Cayugas GAMING, PAGE A-l 3 Trout, salmon could lure students to Oswego State By Fred A. Mohr Staff writer High school seniors casting abourfor their ideal college have i another reason to target the State University College at Oswego. It's been named one of the top 10 fly-fishing colleges by Fly Rod Reel magazine. Oswego State ranked fourth among U.S. colleges for the vari- ety of fly-fishing opportunities near campus. "Steelhead, browns and salm- on running up from Lake Ontar- io would keep you busy fall, winter and spring, especially on the Salmon wrote W. D. 1 Wetherell, who made most of the picks. Michael Huynh, a guidance counselor at Bishop Ludden High School, surprised. "I always tell my friends that was why I went to said Huhyn (pronounced a 1998 graduate and New Haven resident who enjoys steelhead fishing. "It's why I live here." The article in the July-October issue includes another SUNY school, Pittsburgh, at No. 9. It won praise for the bass fishing on Lake Champlain and proxim- ity to Adirondack streams. Joe Grant, head of student af- fairs and enrollment, said he wasn't sure what to make of Os- wego's inclusion, until he no- ticed the Ivy League's Dart- mouth College made the list. "That's pretty good compa- he said. "If good students want to come to Oswego and do some fishing while they're here, that's fine with us." Majoring m fishing?

Leader denies involvement. The Associated Press Savannah, Ga. A quarter- century after they were taken captive in Iran, five former American hostages say they got an unexpected reminder of their 444-day ordeal in the bearded face of Iran's new president- elect. Watching coverage of Iran's presidential election on televi- sion dredged up 25-year-old memories that prompted four of the former hostages to exchange e-mails. And those four realized they shared the same conclusion the firm belief that Prcsidcnt- V Ahmadinejad elect Mah- moud Ahmadi- nejad had been one of their Iranian cap- tors. "This is the guy. There's no question about said former hostage Chuck Scott, a retired Army col- onel who lives in Jonesboro, Ga.
