Welcome to Ghost in the Machine Day!

Is your mind within your body? Does it exist in your brain or is it separate from it? These are a few of the questions we ponder today on Ghost in the Machine Day. "Ghost in the machine" is a philosophical phrase having to do with the relationship between the mind and body. It critiques the idea that the mind is a distinct entity from the body, by saying that such an idea is like believing there is a "ghost in the machine." Gilbert Ryle came up with the phrase and first used it in his 1949 book, The Concept of Mind. In it, he called René Descartes' belief of mind-body dualism the "ghost in the machine." Others besides Descartes also believed there is a mind that is separate from the body, and that it can live on after the body dies. Ryle's belief contrasted with this: he believed consciousness and the mind are dependent on the brain and are not apart from it.

New Syracuse summer basketball league starts tonight; some SU players involved (PS; $; Ditota)

This story has been edited to show that Eddie Lampkin and JJ Starling will not be playing in this league until June 18 after Mike Sugamosto heard from Syracuse University’s compliance people that SU players can’t participate until then.

Syracuse, N.Y. — A rebranded summer basketball league begins in Camillus tonight, with the promise of involvement by some Syracuse University players.

Two of those players (JJ Starling, Kyle Cuffe) are returning to SU from the 2023-24 season. Two others (Eddie Lampkin and Lucas Taylor) were plucked from the 2024 transfer portal.

The Salt City Pro Am, run by new Corning Community College head men’s basketball coach Mike Sugamosto, makes its debut Tuesday night in the St. Joseph’s Church gym.

Sugamosto, the former Syracuse Stallions GM, was in charge of the league in its previous iteration.

Previously known as the Elite Basketball Club, the new Salt City Pro Am was a way for Sugamosto to “clean up” the logo and include a Syracuse reference in the rebranding.

For Syracuse basketball, 'going to be really big year,' says 4-star big Eddie Lampkin (itlh; Adler)

Eddie Lampkin Jr., a four-star transfer center who will spend his final season of college on the Hill, has big expectations for himself and Syracuse basketball during the upcoming 2024-25 campaign.

The 6-foot-11, 265-pound Lampkin, a senior from Colorado, recently shared some insights in a great podcast interview with the X account No Destination.

Lampkin, in the 2023-24 season, averaged 10.6 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game at Colorado, and he played in this past spring's NCAA Tournament.

Given all the comings and goings for the Orange this off-season via the transfer portal, Lampkin is the presumed starting center for the 'Cuse at the onset of the next term. In national transfer rankings, multiple recruiting services have him as four stars, in the top 200 overall, and in the top 20 at center.

Syracuse Basketball: Landing 4-star Kiyan Anthony would be a 'huge statement play' (itlh; Adler)

Syracuse basketball fans, myself included, are eager and anxious to find out where Kiyan Anthony will ultimately play in college.

The 6-foot-5 Anthony, a 2025 four-star shooting guard and a top-30 national prospect who hails from New York City, is the son of Orange legend Carmelo Anthony, who led the 'Cuse to its only national championship in 2003.

Some Syracuse basketball fanatics, understandably, think it's a lock that Kiyan Anthony will don an Orange uniform down the line. I'm not in that camp, although I do believe that the 'Cuse is a significant contender for him.

Lately, Syracuse basketball has received some analyst buzz for Anthony on various recruiting Web sites. The Orange staff is clearly prioritizing him, watching at least two of Anthony's games on the AAU circuit last month during an NCAA live period.

Anthony, who has received around 20 offers throughout his recruitment, was offered a scholarship by the 'Cuse in November of 2022. In late October of last year, he went on an official visit to the Hill. He's also officially visited Florida State, and several recent media reports indicate that he's eyeing some additional campus visits in the coming months, including a possible return trip to the Orange.

Former SU assistant Mike Hopkins takes job with Phoenix Suns (report) (PS; Ditota)

Mike Hopkins has accepted a job as an assistant coach for the Phoenix Suns, according to an ESPN report Tuesday morning by Adrian Wojnarowski and Pete Thamel.

Hopkins spent seven years as the head basketball coach at the University of Washington before he was fired after the 2023-24 season. He amassed a 122-110 (.526) record with the Huskies, leaving the school as the program departs the now-gutted Pac-12 and heads to the Big Ten.

Hopkins was a two-time Pac-12 coach of the year, but his teams had gone five seasons without an invitation to the NCAA Tournament.

He was hired by Washington in March 2017 after Syracuse University had made him their designated head coach in waiting as Jim Boeheim was nearing the end of his career.

Hopkins played for the Orange from 1989-93 and after a brief flirtation with professional basketball returned to Syracuse as Boeheim’s assistant coach. He spent 22 seasons on the Orange staff, where he developed a reputation as a quality recruiter and a passionate coach.

Hopkins, 54, spent time over the years with USA Basketball, where he helped coach NBA professionals. This will be his first gig as an NBA assistant.



Dylan Jones, of Horseheads, was fishing for panfish on Cayuga Lake in late May using a crappie jig tied to a perch rod that turned into a wet noodle when he hooked this 22.25-inch smallmouth. Jones estimates the fish weighed between seven and eight pounds.Dylan Jones

Super Cayuga Lake smallmouth gives Upstate NY angler a pre-season thrill (PS; Featherstone)

The past two years around opening day of bass season, we’ve brought you the story of Thomas Russell, an avid bass angler from Albion, who in 2022 smashed the New York state record with an 8-lb, 5.8-ounce Cayuga Lake smallmouth.

Russell released that fish and caught it again in 2023, in the same spot, except this time around it weighed a hair over 9-lbs. We’re keeping Russell on speed dial to see what he comes up with after bass season opens this year on Saturday.

But in the meantime, check out this whopper of a fish tale about another Cayuga Lake angler, Dylan Jones, of Horseheads. Jones bought his first boat this spring and launched it early one morning in late May at Taughannock Falls State Park.

Jones had already christened his new ride nearly a dozen times since April, jigging for lake trout on the north end of Cayuga Lake. By 11 a.m. he’d caught five lakers when the bite fell off a cliff. With full sun and light winds, he decided to stow his trout poles and switch to bass. But he didn’t have much luck. In four hours, he caught just one perch.

A Syracuse-area fish fry restaurant is closing after nearly 70 years (PS; Doran)

A longtime takeout restaurant that specializes in fried fish is closing after nearly 70 years of operation.

Sal’s Seafoods, which opened on Route 11 (3730 Brewerton Road) in North Syracuse in 1957, announced on social media its last day of business will be June 28.

Sal’s Seafoods, open only on Thursdays and Fridays for takeout only, has specialized in fish fry dinners, also offering fried scallops, fried clams and fried popcorn shrimp, along with accompanying fries and salads.

The original owner, Sal Borregine, retired in the mid-1990s. His son-in-law, David Sobotka, bought the business and is now retiring himself. Sobotka had helped out for many years in the restaurant.

“I would like to express my appreciation to all of the customers who have been supporting us since Sal originally started the business 70 years ago,” the Facebook post said. “We are proud to have served the community and to have kept Sal’s vision of bringing the best fried seafood to North Syracuse and surrounding areas.”


Most of the continental U.S., including all of Upstate New York, is expected to be warmer than normal over the next two weeks. Climate Prediction Center

Summer heat will return to Upstate NY this week and hang around for a while (PS; Coin)

After a cool start to the work week, a big warmup is coming for Upstate New York later this week.

Temperatures didn’t even crack 70 degrees on Monday, but they’ll start rising today and peak in the high 80s on Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. Humidity will build this week, too, making the air feel a few degrees warmer than the recorded temperature.

The warm trend is expected to stick around: The next two weeks are likely to be warmer than normal, the weather service predicts. The normal high temperature in Syracuse this time of year is 77.

Starting on Monday, temperatures could soar into the 90s as high pressure builds in the Northeast. Some parts of the Northeast could see the first heat wave of the season, defined as three consecutive days of at least 90 degrees.

Skies should be mostly sunny through Thursday, but a cold front sweeping in Thursday night and Friday, bringing rain showers and a few thunderstorms.
