Clare Enters
BC Hall of Fame
In 2015 Clare Droesch was
honored as an "ACC Women's
Basketball Legend.” Last week-
end, Clare’s legendary status
was further established as she
was inducted into the Boston
College Hall of Fame for her
amazing exploits on the hard-
wood. Many locals made the
trip from Rockaway to share in
this lifetime achievement.
A Belle Harbor native and
lifelong resident, Clare was
an All-American at Christ the
King High School before head-
ing off to Boston. “Whenever
a big game was on the line,
Clare Droesch wanted the bas-
ketball.” The Boston College
website hails her accomplish-
ments: “The feisty and fearless
point guard was a key contrib-
utor to a golden era of women's
basketball at Boston College.
Co-captain of the 2005 club
that knocked off No. 1-ranked
UConn again in her final home
game; and the sharp-shooting
guard who earned All-Big East
recognition with a dazzling ca-
reer production of 1,136 points
(including 158 3-pointers),
539 rebounds, and 314 assists
in 126 games (BC won 92 of
them.)”
observed. Conversations turned
to transportation, how the travel
time toManhattan affects Rocka-
way’s economy, changes in pop-
ulation, mental health, non-prof-
its, property values, the local
economy andmore.
After the debate, the discussion
became evenmore lively.
“I don’t think they changed an-
yone’smind about anything,” one
woman said. “If people were go-
ing to vote for Trump, they’re still
going to vote for Trump. If they
were going to vote for Clinton,
they are still going to vote for her.”
“This election is extremely
important,” another said. “We
have an empty seat on the Su-
preme Court. And this election
affects all the other offices. On
range of 1 to 5, this is a big 5.”
One man said, “Well the prob-
lem is if you don’t have a majority
in Congress, you’re screwed. Peo-
ple looking fromthe outside (at the
presidency)say‘Youdidn’tgetany-
thingdone!’Andyou’resaying they
didn’t letmeget anythingdone.”
Another man added, “The
problem is the real power is with
the Congress. And Congress an-
swers to the peoplewithmoney.”
“What are theypaying attention
to? Are they paying attention to
us? Or to big business?”
OthersagreedthatCongress, and
every other elected position, needs
tohave termlimitsandturnover.
“Our nationchanges, theworld
changes. We need fresh ideas,”
the man next to him offered. “It
takes new eyes to see the things
that don’t work.” “What concerns
me, what affects us, more is our
local politicians, our local elected
offices,” Scala said.
“If the Fed can’t understand
what happens at the local level,
then we have a big problem,” an-
otherman added.
About watching the debate at
BungalowBar, insteadof anoffice
or meeting room, one man said,
“I think it’s a great location! We
should domore of these.”
He said, “You get to meet peo-
ple. People, right and left, sit
down, have conversations.”
“It’s all about getting people
to talk to each other. You might
spark an idea,” he said.
“That’s what’s going to make
things happen.”
