ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Andrey Makarov made 27 saves as the Rochester Americans moved into a playoff position by defeating the visiting Toronto Marlies 3-1 on Friday in American Hockey League action. Kevin Porter, Luke Adam and Jerome Gauthier-Leduc supplied the scoring for the Americans (34-27-10), who came into the game one point behind the Oklahoma City Barons and idle Charlotte Checkers for the final post-season spot in the Western Conference. Rochester has won four straight games after dropping nine in a row. Josh Leivo scored the lone goal for the Marlies (42-23-6) while Christopher Gibson stopped 18-of-21 shots in defeat. Porter opened the scoring at 13:22 of the first period for the Americans. Leivo, however, responded just 27 seconds later for Toronto. After a scoreless second period, Rochester regained the lead 3:23 into the third when Luke Adam scored on the power play while Peter Holland served a minor for goaltender interference. Torontos Kevin Marshall was sent off for hooking, which led to Gauthier-Leduc adding another power-play goal for the Americans at 7:04. Rochester went 2 for 6 on the power play while the Marlies failed to score on six chances with the man advantage. The Americans currently sit seventh in the West, but could finish the night in eighth if the Barons defeat the Abbotsford Heat. Yeezy Wholesale Authentic . -- Maxence Parrot of Bromont, Que.

But theres mounting anxiety that ski towns have embraced stoner culture a little too much, potentially damaging the states tourism brand.That worry flared up in two resort towns last week. In Breckenridge, residents voted overwhelmingly to force downtowns lone dispensary off Main Street to a less-visible location. And just up the road in Granby, town officials used a property annex to prevent a dispensary from opening.The fear is that some families — a mainstay of the ski tourism industry — will stop vacationing here.Its not a morality issue, or that we think marijuana is bad, said Breckenridge councilman Gary Gallagher, who supported legal marijuana but also voted to force the Breckenridge Cannabis Club out of downtown. Marijuana, it is not in this countrys DNA yet. Its a little bit too early.So far, theres no indication that legal pot has damaged tourism, Colorados No. 2 industry. The state notched a record $17.3 billion in tourism spending the year after legalization, with a record 64.6 million visitors, and state tourism officials say 2014 is poised to top last years record.But its an open question whether pot has anything to do with it. Officials cite the improving economy and the weather, with healthy snow totals historically being the most significant driver for mountain visits.The state and its marijuana industry are barred by law from advertising weed out of state, and the head of the Colorado Tourism Office says the state isnt tracking the role of marijuana in tourist behaviour.Its all anecdotal, Al White said. I have heard from some angry parents who said theyll never come back to Colorado because of marijuana. And Ive also heard from people who say they came to Colorado just to see the marijuana.At the end of the day, it may be having a modest effect, but its not huge either way.The recent friction isnt the first time officials have mmoved to lower marijuanas profile.ddddddddddddThe nations largest ski operator, Vail Resorts, made headlines over the last year tearing down makeshift shelters built illicitly in hard-to-reach areas and used by stoners to get safe, mountain slang for toking up out of the cold and away from ski patrollers. Resorts across the state are dotted with the so-called smoke shacks, and some of them are decades old.We will continue to communicate that consumption of marijuana is illegal in public and on federal land, Vail Resorts Russ Pecoraro said in a statement about destroying the shacks in its four areas, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Vail.Still, at rates greater than their urban neighbours, mountain communities backed marijuana legalization in 2012, including Breckenridge, an early and enthusiastic support base, and theres no doubt that recreational pot has had an effect on ski towns.A state-produced July report on the new marijuana industry concluded that 90 per cent of recreational sales in mountain resort communities go to out-of-state visitors.The influx of shoppers — and camera crews that have become frequent sights as they work on pot-themed news stories and documentaries — has prompted a lively debate among residents about how pot is changing their resorts.Whether youre pro-marijuana or against marijuana, you have to be concerned about how tourists react to seeing it, said Bob Gordman, a Breckenridge retiree who voted to move the dispensary.Others say the marijuana novelty will die down naturally and that resort towns shouldnt worry about dispensaries or the souvenir shops that put Rocky Mountain High puns on T-shirts.In five or 10 years, itll be no big issue, said Bill Kiser, a Breckenridge retiree who voted to keep the dispensary on Main Street.Why dont families get turned off when they go on vacation and see a bar and people drinking alcohol? Because theyre used to it, Kiser said. People will eventually get used to this, too.___Kristen Wyatt can be reached at ' ' '
