The historic Hillcrest Jephson estate on Ridge Road is protected by deed restrictions and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and now seven acres of the estate as well as the four buildings on the property have been preserved against future development through an easement that the current owners have donated to the Cazenovia Preservation Foundation. The easement means that the appearance of the landscape and exterior architecture of the estate buildings will remain unchanged for future generations.
Cazenovia’s popular Joint Youth Recreation Program is preparing for the 2014 season with a new adult supervisor, some new programs, a community service project and the opportunity for community businesses to support and participate in the program through sponsorships.
“Thanks,” was all Richard Faulkner felt he needed to say when asked if he wanted to say a few a words to the crowd gathered at Bluefield Manor in Auburn on March 8. Faulkner was presented with a Purple Heart medal, the U.S. Military’s recognition for veterans wounded in combat, an honor he originally refused following his service as an airman in World War II almost 70 years ago.
Town officials are working on a five-year plan for development of the Skaneateles Falls hamlet as well as nearby areas. The Town Board discussed some of the projects proposed in the plan, including improvements to Skaneateles Falls Playground and a “rails to trails” project, at its March 6 meeting.
When you walk into Baldwinsville’s Canal Walk Cafe, you’re surrounded by the talents of local artists in a variety of media: culinary, crafting and paintings just to name a few. What you may not know is that one of those artists responsible for the eclectic and eye-catching decor is also involved in dishing up your palate’s preference. Meet your server, Jackie Colello, a gifted painter whose passion involves another kind of palette: color.
Investigation into December graffiti incidents goes cold
The 16-year-old Manlius teen who was arrested last summer after admitting his role in the Lakeland Park bathhouse graffiti incident has completed the punishments given to him by the Cazenovia court and, if he stays out of trouble for six months, the case will be dismissed and the fact of his arrest nullified from his record.
Guests of the Brewster Inn were minorly inconvenienced Wednesday night, March 5, when a chimney fire forced a building evacuation. Cazenovia volunteer firefighters arrived on the scene at approximately 10 p.m. where they saw flames coming out of the chimney, said Fire Chief Nick Enders.
Daryl Anthony remains out on bail, sentencing scheduled for May 21
Daryl T. Anthony, the man dubbed the Cazenovia “exercise stalker,” has pleaded guilty in town court to one count of criminal nuisance in the second degree and will be spending time in jail and on probation for his actions stalking women as they exercised on the streets of Cazenovia last summer and fall. Anthony, who appeared before Town Justice Timothy Moore on Wednesday, March 5, accepted a plea deal with the Madison County District Attorney’s Office in which he will receive 60 days in jail on a split sentence and three years of probation. He also waived his right to appeal.

To the editor: My name is Bill Brazill, and I’ve been on the village board in Minoa for the past twelve years. John Champagne is also a board member, and he and I will be running for re-election on March 18, when the village will hold an election for two open trustee positions and the village justice position. Both of us have leadership skills, experience and years of community involvement.
Marylee Manson Armour knew how to turn a phrase. She was one of Liverpool’s most gifted writers ever. Her crowning achievement was a book about a Fourth Lake mail-boat captain, “Heartwood: The Adirondack Homestead Life of W. Don Burnap.” Marylee died Feb. 20 at age 89, but she had continued journaling up into her 87th year, this time in the form of a blog. Her favorite topics were nature, spirituality and homespun Hoosier humor. Born in Terre Haute, Ind., Marylee had resided in Liverpool since 1947, spending summers at the family camp at Fourth Lake.
