Will Mowers & Esche Save Arena

from the Utica Observer Dispatch,
Whitesboro native and National Hockey League veteran Mark Mowers said the town should make keeping the Whitestown Community Center's ice rink open year-round a priority. The Town Board voted Wednesday to close the rink from April 1 to July 5 because of rising costs after offering year-round ice since 1986. Mowers, who is earning $450,000 this year with the Red Wings, appears ready to put his money where his mouth is. "I know what people are going to say when they read this. They'll say: 'Why don't you and (Philadelphia Flyers goalie) Robert Esche (another Whitesboro native) do something about it?' Well, why didn't they come and ask me? I never got a call." You can bet Mowers will now.

"Two years ago in Detroit, I felt like the coach wasn't afraid to throw me into any situation," Mowers said. "But this year, I'm starting to lose faith that that's ever going to happen. "But I'm trying to stay as positive as possible. When I do play, I try to keep it simple and do my job and hopefully good things will happen."
