(WSYR-TV) — For today’s host chat we say goodbye to Neil Kerr, the dean of New York state high school sportswriting for nearly a half-century, who died on Tuesday afternoon at age 80. Kerr was a pioneer in the coverage and promotion of high school athletics since joining the Post-Standard in 1966 after graduating from Syracuse University. He was also a behind-the-scenes advocate for the growth of high school sports, helping to lobby for the creation of state championship tournaments. Kerr was also the original database for hundreds of historical stats lists, such as the 100 career wins mark for wrestling and the basketball 1,000-point club.

Folks are in a frenzy after hearing this morning about another truck hitting the bridge on Onondaga Lake Parkway. There were no injuries, but it does make you wonder what can we do about this? Road bumps? More signage? 

The band Perry is no more…some members are even teasing solo projects.
